A few odds and ends....

Just a few odds and ends found while surfing...

.....found here and there.



From an online news source...

Fox had demanded to $1 per cable subscriber per month for programming it used to gave away, saying it no longer can afford to offer programming free when cable channels earn subscriber fees.



In Las Vegas in December, there was a great holiday party invitation which included the following:

… come join us for toasted marshmallows and carolers …

What comes to your mind?


A Final Jeopardy answer from early January:

Of the eight parts of speech, this is the only one that does not end in the same four letters as at least one of the others.


The answer is...

What is an adjective?

The other seven are -

verb - adverb
noun - pronoun
conjunction - preposition - interjection


From an online advice site -

Never assume that your cat knows the difference between her litter tray and the large, square pan of fruit crumble you’ve left cooling on the counter top.

Never try to remove your contact lenses after eating Hot Wings.

Never, never put bubble bath in a hottub with jets.

When attending a New York Jets football game with 3 freinds and you are carrying the letters J E T S to display during the game, make sure you get the order of the letters correct. New York fans do not appreciate the J E S T.


Speaking of advice - here are some quotes worth thinking about.

Wise men don't need advice. Fools won't take it. Benjamin Franklin

If it's free, it's advice; if you pay for it, it's counseling; if you can use either one, it's a miracle. Jack Adams

Advice is like snow -- the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper in sinks into the mind. Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something. Henry David Thoreau
