    Two men met in heaven and struck up a conversation.How did you die the first man asked? i froze to death, the second answered. To which the first man asked again, how does it feel do freeze to death? At first it was extremely cold, then afterwards i lost all feeling and i died.
    By the way how did you die? the second man asked, i had a heart attack, you see i had long suspected my wife of cheating on me, so one day i came home unexpectedly and knew i had finally found her in the act.
    I run to the back of the house and found no one, then i came back in and while i was going upstairs to check in the attic i had a heart attack and died.
    That's ironic said the second man, if you had just stopped to check in the fridge, we would both still be alive!!

      @ saywhat

      Good morning to you my friend. The forcast for our area has changed drastically as the track of Issac hascked continued to move west. It's forecast to be a vey minmal huriccane at landfall, so the impact will be a lot less than previously thought. It's still going to bad for those directly in it's path, which appears to be more now to the parrishes south and slighly west of New Orleans. This is one of those good news, bad news scenarios depending on where you are at.

      Replying to saw what, but keep it (wars) out of our country. Think of all that money creating jobs or keeping people healthy.

    People of the United States of America,
    What the CNN story that most Americans have 10K or less in assets when they die means the Cost of Living, Health Care and Taxes are sucking the life out of people, If you have a family income of say 50K a year.Every dime goes to spend whatever it takes to survive out there. When you do die, the Government wants another piece of the action on money you already paid taxes on so your family gets to be blunt “Screwed Over”. Only the Rich and Auber Rich probably have real money in the bank.

    Good afternoon, all.
    Rawr, although I am glad that the storm has been minimalised for your area, I will still worry.
    Lots of stubborn people out there that will act stoically, but put themselves in harm's way.
    I hope my fears will not be borne out!
    In the meantime, keep those jokes coming, my friend!
