1804 The first self-propelled locomotive on rails was demonstrated in
Wales. 

1842 John J. Greenough patented the sewing machine. 

1848 The Communist Manifesto was published by Karl Marx and Friedrich
Engels. The only part of that, which remains in our Government
institutions, is that productive people are taxed at a higher
percentage rate, than people, who don't work as hard, or at all.

I thought you just got back from a nice relaxing fishing trip with your husband." "Oh, everything went wrong: First he said I talked so loud I would scare the fish. Then he said I was using the wrong bait; and then that I was reeling in too soon. "All that might have been all right; but then, to make matters worse, I ended up catching a dozen fish, and he didn't get any!" ______________________________________________________ After the boy's birthday, a parent decreed that she was no longer going to remind her teenage son of their thank-you note duties. As a result their grandmother never received acknowledgments of the generous check she had given. The next year things were different, however. "My grandson came over in person to thank me," the grandparent told a friend triumphantly. "How wonderful!" the friend exclaimed. "What do you think caused his change in behavior?" "Oh, that's easy," the grandmother replied. "This year I didn't sign the check." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

A Florida man was arrested Sunday after allegedly trying to turn his Cape Coral apartment into an indoor shooting range, according to the Cape Coral Police Department. Ivan Bakh, 61, was charged when his neighbors called police to report that they were awakened by a loud bang and found a large hole in the headboard of their beds, just over their heads. A second hole was discovered in the dresser mirror at the foot of the victims' bed, police say. Further investigation from the victims uncovered another hole in the adjacent living room (on the other side of the wall from the dresser mirror) and a fourth hole in the living room's far wall. After police were summoned, they made contact with Bakh, the victims' next-door neighbor, according to the police report. An investigation of his apartment revealed a large hole through the wall between his apartment and the victims' next door. Several books were found, taped together and propped on a shelf. One had a target drawn on the cover in red marker, police say. The books appeared to be perforated by several rounds, according to police. A 9 mm shell casing was located in the hallway between the bathroom and the bedroom of Bakh's residence, police say. Also located inside the home was a safe containing a 9 mm Glock. The rounds located inside the magazine of the Glock handgun were a match to the 9mm spent casing located on the ground inside the residence, according to police. Bakh was charged with shooting into a dwelling and reckless discharge of a firearm and transported to Lee County Jail, police say. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Maria Re: Hotmail woes Dear Webby, Hi Dear Webby, I miss you........the last letter I received from you is this one.

When I was working as a clerk at a sporting-goods store, a woman came up to my register with a package of white athletic socks. "Will you open this so I can see how the socks feel?" she asked. Reluctantly I tore open the package, and she scrutinized the merchandise. She handed me the package, saying, "I'll take them." Relieved, I started to ring her up, until she interrupted me. "Can I have another pack? This one's been opened." I told her: "I'll go talk to the manager", locked the till, took the opened package and dropped it back on the shelf on my way to a better job.

John took Wendy to dinner at a really posh restaurant. They walked in, were ushered to a table by a formally dressed maitre d', and sat down at a table on which were displayed the finest china and crystal. Taking the damask napkin from the solid silver napkin ring, John unfolded it, put it around his neck and proceeded to tie a knot in the back. Staring at him, the maitre d' said, between gritted teeth, "Sir, will you be having a shave or a haircut?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Label It Before It Goes In The Freezer Attach a marker to your fridge and write a date on everything you put in your freezer. If you don't want to write on reusable freezer containers, just attach a label with the date on it. Before you go shopping, take stock of what you have in the freezer and plan meals that use it up. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ A real-estate agent was driving around with a new trainee when she spotted a charming little farmhouse with a hand-lettered "For Sale" sign out front. After briskly introducing herself and her associate to the startled occupant, the agent cruised from room to room, opening closets and cupboards, testing faucets and pointing out where a "new light fixture here and a little paint there" would help. Pleased with her assertiveness, the woman was hopeful that the owner would offer her the listing. "Ma'am," the man said, "I appreciate the home-improvement tips and all, but I think you read my sign wrong. It says, "HORSE for sale."
