Thought for the day

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who as the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. [Theodore Roosevelt]

Texas Tourists

A couple from Texas were taking a cross country drive, taking in sites they couldn't get back home.
While driving through Wisconsin, they were often boggled by the place names, which peaked as they were approaching Oconomowoc.

The couple started arguing about the pronunciation of the town's name. They argued back and forth until they stopped for lunch, where they knew they could settle their bet as to how it was pronounced by asking a local.

When it was their turn the man asked the cute young thing behind the counter, "Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us?"

"I'll try," promised the local.

"Would you please pronounce where we are -- very slowly?"

"Sure," said the blonde girl. She leaned over the counter and said, "Burrrrrrgerrrrrr Kiiiinnnnng."

Department of Labor Investigation

The North Dakota Department of Labor claimed a small Bismarck farmer was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.

Department of Labor employee: I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.

Farmer: Well, there’s my farm hand who’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.
 Then there’s the mentally challenged worker. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.

Department of Labor employee: That’s the guy I want to talk to… the mentally challenged one.

Farmer: That would be me.

Atlanta Mourns Loss of a Special Person

Royal Marshall, producer of the Neal Boortz syndicated radio show, dropped dead Friday night of a massive heart attack at the age of 43.  Royal was known for his quick wit and his ability to parry Neal.  What better way to remember him than this.

Nice Yacht

I am thinking of buying a boat , What do you all think about this one?

There’s buzz overseas about what could possibly be the world’s first billion dollar yacht. A UK yacht designer, Yacht Island Design, has drawn plans for a four-level, 500-ft. city on the sea called “Streets of Monaco,” which is being modeled after the European enclave, a space for millionaires and billionaires alike.
On the top deck, there will be scaled-down versions of uber famous Monaco landmarks like the Hotel de Paris, Monte Carlo Casino, Café de Paris, Loews Hotel, and La Rascasse. The real pinchers are a fully-functional go-kart circuit track based on the Monoco Grand Prix race track, complete with a tunnel complex, and the submarine and helipad. And not to mention, the standard multiple swimming pools, swim-in Jacuzzi bar, multi-use sports court for tennis and basketball, dance hall, spa and hair salon, and accommodations for 16 guests and 70 staff members. The main apartment for the yacht owner is spread over three floors and covers 4,800 sq. ft.

I think this would be a comfy bedroom.
