    A little downtime fun - reading headlines.

    My all time favorite was came in the 1970's. Here's the setup: small factory town in eastern CT, two major employers, American Thread and American Screw. During negotiations for property, the following appeared in the local paper:

    "American Thread Makes Offer to Screw Stockholders"


    I saw this one online today:

    "Police Were Called to Foster Home Where 2-Year-Old Was Found Dead 63 TIMES"

    LOL As a young woman, the question was "Where have all the flowers gone?" but now the question is, where have all the proofreaders gone. Maybe they smelled too many of those flowers or rolled them into some illicit substance that stole their brain cells

    Proof reading and sub-editing has pretty much gone the way of manual typesetting. Replaced by semi literate journalists relying on spell-checking software.

    I believe they are still looking for it....I think the military police using seeing-eye dogs is not helping. ;)

    I will never see a can of Reddi-wip that it doesn't make me think of the day, so far in the past it was almost the dark ages. I was about 4 or 5 and my brother was 6 or 7. My dad was away fighting in some war or skirmish someplace in the world. One night, my Mom was fixing us strawberry shortcake with "Reddi-wip" which I believe was fairly new to the market. In any case, the spray nozzle must have malfunctioned because a broad spray of the whip came shooting out covering my brother's face, chest, pants. I was panic stricken. You have to understand that I idolized my brother. Probably the only time in my life I ever yelled at my mother ...."Don't you hurt my brother" LOL It was so traumatic to me that to this day, I remember every detail. I haven't used Reddi-wip since.

    ray-and-dee.

    Does this mean you use Cool-Whip... or go old school and whip your own cream?;)

    I whip my own and when I'm luck with cream still warm from the cow. Can't stand Cool-whip. Its nothing more than a plastic derivative with a little sweetener added
