Earth Hour March 29


Hi Marty,

Here is how the kids spent Earth Hour. Our grandson Jack and daughter-in-law Tracy playing checkers by candlelight. It sure brought back fond memories from my youth when we would go to Mississquoi Bay for the summer. We would sit around with oil lamps and Roz would read stories to me. There were also great times spent at my great aunt Eva's home on Lac St. Louis in Valois when we would turn on the radio in the evening and listen to mystery programs. I would go to bed terrified.

PS My little Nissan Rogue goes like snot. Its built on the Sentra platform and has the same base engine and tranny as the SE-R. Shocks a lot of people. The CVT tranny is strange at first, what with no gear shifting, but surprisingly quick when passing.

Thanks Bob

The Electric demand was reduced by 5% Sat. Night around here. I would have thought that it would have been much more.

A Morning Funny

A curious fellow died one day and found himself waiting
> in the longline of judgement. As he stood there he noticed
> that some souls were allowed to march right through the
> pearly gates into Heaven. Others though, were led over
> to Satan who threw them into the burning fire.
> But every so often, instead of hurling a poor soul into the
> fire,
> Satan would toss a soul off to one side into a small
> pile.
> After watching Satan do this several times, the fellow's
> curiosity got the best of him.
>
> So he strolled over and asked Satan what he was
> doing.
> "Excuse me, Prince of Darkness," he said. "I'm waiting
> in line for Judgement, but I couldn't help
> wondering.
> Why are you tossing those people aside instead of
> flinging them into the Fires of Hell with the others?"
>
> "Oh those" Satan groaned.
> "They're all from Canada.
> They're still too cold and wet to burn."

Popular Dog

A man was leaving a convenience store with his morning coffee when he noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery.

A long black hearse was followed by a second long black hearse about 50 feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was a
solitary man walking a dog on a leash. Behind him, a short distance back, were about 200 men walking single file.

The man couldn't stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached the man walking the dog and said, 'I am so sorry for your loss, and I know now is a bad time to disturb you, but I'v e never seen a funeral like this. Who’s funeral is it?'

'My wife's.'
'What happened to her?'
The man replied, 'My dog attacked and killed her.'
He inquired further, 'But, who is in the second hearse?'
The man answered, 'My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife when the dog turned on her.'

A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passed between the two men.
'Can I borrow the dog?'
The man told him, 'Get in line.'

Thanks David W.

In a Minute...!!!

John Smith climbs to the top of Mt. Sinai to

get close enough to talk to God.

Looking up, he asks the Lord... "God, what does

a million years mean to you?"

The Lord replies, "A minute."

John Smith asks, "And what does a million

dollars mean to you?"

The Lord replies, "A penny."

John Smith asks, "Can I have a penny?"

The Lord replies, "In a minute."

Thanks Jim E.
