  1. These reasons would have you committed to the trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in WV. in the late 19th century

  3. Senior Drivers No Longer Need Driver's License My neighbor was working in his yard when he was startled by a late model car that came crashing through his hedge and ended up in his front lawn.He rushed to help an elderly lady driver out of the car and sat her down on a lawn chair.He said with excitement, "You appear quite elderly to be driving." "Well, yes, I am," she replied proudly. "I'll be 97 next month, and I am now old enough that I don't even need a driver's license anymore.""You don't need a driver's license anymore?!?"That's right! The last time I went to my doctor, he examined me and asked if I had a driver's license.I told him 'yes' and handed it to him. He took scissors out of the drawer, cut the license into pieces, and threw them in the waste basket, saying, ' You won't need this anymore'. So I thanked him and left!"
  4. A new Priest at his first mass was so nervous he could hardly speak. After mass he asked the Monsignor how he had done. The Monsignor replied, "When I am worried about getting nervous on the pulpit, I put a glass of vodka next to the water glass. If I start to get nervous, I take a sip.." So next Sunday he took the Monsignor's advice. At the beginning of the sermon, he got nervous and took a drink. He proceeded to talk up a storm. Upon his return to his office after the mass, he found the following note on the door: 1) Sip the vodka, don't gulp. 2) There are 10 commandments, not 12. 3) There are 12 disciples, not 10. 4) Jesus was consecrated, not constipated. 5) Jacob wagered his donkey, he did not bet his ass. 6) We do not refer to Jesus Christ as the late J.C. 7) The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are not referred to as Daddy, Junior and the Spook. 8) David slew Goliath; he did not kick the s**t out of him. 9) When David was hit by a rock and was knocked off his donkey, don't say he was stoned off his ass. 10) We do not refer to the cross as the 'Big T.' 11) When Jesus broke the bread at the last supper he said, "Take this and eat it for this is my body.." He did not say, "Eat me." 12) The Virgin Mary is not called 'Mary with the Cherry'. 13) The recommended grace before a meal is not: Rub-A-Dub-Dub thanks for the grub, Yeah God. 14) Next Sunday there will be a taffy pulling contest at St. Peter's not a peter pulling contest at St. Taffy's.

  8. Black walnuts can be a pain in the neck to pick up and crack. Having said that the pictures show a pair of tools that make this easier. One is designed to pick them up from the ground, a friend uses it, and the other is designed to crack hard shell nuts....black walnuts, hickory etc. My brother uses the nut cracker and it works okay once adjusted to the general nut size
  9. rocco thanks for the information. I looked at the link provided and didn't really see the tomato blemish there. the spots on the other hand may be a virus / bacteria. exacerbated by too dense a planting. I will continue looking for a answer..do we still have county agricultural extensions offices?.I have had a problem with blossom end rot in the past and found that it essentially cleared up after heavy liming for the last few years. The fig trees are only in the ground for two years. Bent them over and wrapped them ( tied down w/ parachute cord anchored to 12 inch tent pegs and filled with leaves ) the size this year make as that a genuine chore as the approach ten feet ans inch plus trunks.Does the variety make a difference? they are two different types. Truly appreciate any and all help in these matters. Mike
  10. howdy all I have a couple of questions regarding the garden. How important is wrapping and back filling with leaves / straw the fig trees for the winter? do they really need a lot of protection over the winter.location middlesex county nj Any thoughts on what can cause spots and blems on tomatos? will try to post pictures later
  11. The GEE BEE, one of my dads favorite aircraft, these pics show a bit of the evolution of the air craft. He did say the tiny control surfaces earned the aircraft a reputation as a potentially very dangerous machine.
