In the early 1930's, a farmer and his wife went to a fair.

The farmer was fascinated by the airplanes and asked a pilot how much a ride would cost.

'$10 for 3 minutes,' replied the pilot.

'That's too much,' said the farmer.

The pilot thought for a second and then said, 'I'll make you a deal. If you and your wife ride for 3 minutes without uttering a sound, the ride will be free. But if you make a sound, you'll have to pay $10.'


The farmer and his wife agreed and went for a wild ride.


After they landed, the pilot said to the farmer, 'I want to congratulate you for not making a sound. You are a brave man.'

'Maybe so,' said the farmer, 'But I gotta tell ya, I almost screamed when my wife fell out.'




There was a chap named George who got a new job, his fellow employees always met for a round of golf every Saturday. They asked George if he would like to join them at 10:00am on Saturday morning.
George replied that he would love to meet them, but he may be 6 minutes late.

On Saturday morning George was there at exactly 10:00am. He golfed right handed and won the round.

The next Saturday rolls around, again George says that he will be there, but he may be 6 minutes late.
He shows up right on time, golf's left handed, and wins the round. This continues for the next few weeks, with George always saying that he may be 6 minutes late, and then always winning the round golfing, either left or right handed.

The other employees are getting tired of this, and decided to ask him what the deal was.

They said, ''George, every Saturday you say you may be six minutes late.

You never are. Then you show up and golf with either right handed or left handed, and always win. What is up with that?

George replies, ''Well, I am a very superstitious kind of guy.

Every Saturday when I wake up, I look over at my wife. If she is sleeping On her left side, I golf left handed. If she is sleeping on her right side, I golf right handed.''

''Well,'' one of the employees questioned, ''What happens if she is laying on her back?''

George replies, ''Then I am 6 minutes late.''





A road crew supervisor hired a nice-looking blonde woman to assist with painting the white line down the middle of the road. He was sceptical about hiring her but she appeared enthusiastic and told him that she really needed the job. He explained to her that her work day would be to complete 2 miles of line on her road.

He set her up with her equipment and paint and got her started.

After the first day, he was pleased to find that she did an excellent job and was able to paint 4 miles of road in her 8 hour shift. He told her that she did a great job and how pleased he was with her progress.

On the second day, she completed painting 2 miles of road. Her supervisor was surprised that on day one she had completed twice as much work but did not say anything, as 2 miles of road was the amount that the job required anyway. He decided to just accept it and to look forward to the next day when he was sure she would pick up her speed again.

On day 3 he was shocked to learn that in her 8 hour shift, she only completed painting 1 mile of road. He called her into his office and asked her what was the problem.

"On your first day, you completed 4 miles of road, on your second day, 2 miles of road and now, on day 3, you were only able to complete 1 mile of road.

Can I ask you, what is the problem?"

Well, she replied, "I keep getting farther and farther from the paint can."






The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers, dialled the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whisper, "Hello."

"Is your daddy home?" he asked.

"Yes," whispered the small voice.

"May I talk with him?"

The child whispered, "No."

"Is your mummy there?"

"Yes."

"May I talk with her?"

Again the small voice whispered, "No."

Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, "Is anybody else there?"

"Yes," whispered the child, "a policeman."

Wondering what a police officer would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?"

"No, he's busy," whispered the child.

"Busy doing what?"

"Talking to Daddy and Mummy and the Fireman," came the whispered answer.

Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the earpiece on the phone the boss asked, "What is that noise?"

"A hello-copper," answered the whispering voice.

"What is going on there?" asked the boss, now alarmed.

In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper."

Alarmed, concerned, and even more than just a little frustrated the boss asked, "What are they searching for?"

Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle: "ME."

Now then guys....I've just received some very sad news,..

Jack Lass has sadly passed way..

He's been part of the Seti@home project from it's inception back in 1999, many of you will know him from the message boards on Seti classic and also for being part of The Final Front Ear and before that, Carolyn's Clinic.

A letter arrived from Jack's wife, Susan...

"I'm very sorry to say that Jack died on July 1st. Perhaps you knew he was ill with Stage IV lung cancer. He died at home under hospice care.

Please pass this news on to the members of The Final Front Ear and friends he's met along the way."

I can tell you this has hit me hard...I loved the guy to bits...it's a shock and his passing will take sometime to get over. We had many a laugh together when he came over to the UK, to stay with us and other friends around the UK...

But wherever he's laid his hat,he will be in good company...he'll have Tim and Dog to keep him out of mischief....



Jack's on the right... ;o)
