 The Sierra Club and the U.S. Forest Service were presenting an
alternative to the Wyoming ranchers for controlling the coyote population.
It seems that after years of the ranchers using the tried and true method of shooting or trapping the predators, the Sierra Club had a "more humane" solution to this issue.
What they were proposing was for the animals to be captured alive. The
males would then be castrated and let loose again.
This was ACTUALLY proposed by the Sierra Club and by the U. S. Forest Service.              

All of the ranchers thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes.
Finally an old fellow in the back of the conference room stood up, tipped
his hat back and said; "Son, I don't think you understand our problem
here." "These coyotes ain't breed
-in' our sheep - they're eatin' 'em!"
You should have been there to hear the roar of laughter in that room.
The meeting never really got back on track.

SINGLE BLACK FEMALE seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant.  I'm a good girl who LOVES to play.  I love long walks in the woods, riding in your pickup, hunting, camping and fishing trips, cozy winter nights lying by the fire.  Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand.  I'll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me...  Call (404) 875-6420  (404) 875-6420 and ask for Annie, I'll be waiting.....

Over 150 men found themselves talking to the Atlanta Humane Society.


A lawyer read the will of a rich man to the deceased's family. "To my loving wife, Rose, who stood by me in rough times, as well as good, I leave the house and $2 million."
The lawyer continued,
"To my daughter, Jessica, who looked after me in sickness and kept the business going, I leave the yacht, the business and $1million."
The lawyer concluded,
"And to my cousin, Dan, who hated me, argued with me and thought I would never mention him in my will. Well, you are wrong. Hi, Dan!"


As we get older we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to "make a difference" in the world. It is at these times that our hopes are boosted by the remarkable achievements of other "seniors" who have found the courage to take on challenges that would make many of us wither. 
Harold Schlumberg is such a person.

"I've often been asked, 'What do you old folks do now that you're retired'? 
Well...I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background, and one of the things I enjoy most is turning beer, wine, Scotch, and margaritas into urine." 

Harold should be an inspiration to all of us.
