Why are books your best
Because, when they bore you, you can shut them up
without giving offence.
A husband got to thinking about
being kind to his wife so he brought home some
flowers and candy, kissed her at the door and
said, "Come on honey, slip on your best
dress and well go out to dinner and a
show." The wife said in tears, "It was
bad enough when the baby fell down the stairs and
I broke my best platter and burned my hand....
but now you come home drunk."

I see where they had another survey ta see if
they oughta keep makin pennies. Over sixty
percent of the folks asked said we still need
The biggest problem with not
havin a red cent would be in payin
sales tax. For most, payin a extra penny or
two doesnt hurt much, but ya know
theyd start roundin off up to the
nearest nickel and thatd increase taxes too
much. It would cause too much turmoil.
Ive noticed theyve
started collectin sales tax on a dime. That
equals a 10% tax on kids that buy a stick of
candy or bubble gum. What would they do if all we
had were nickels?
Course it would eliminate
the problem of folks payin parkin
tickets with pennies.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Noncancerous Growths of the Uterus.
DONOHUE: I had stomach pain for two weeks and
finally had an ultrasound of my abdomen. Nothing
bad was found, except for a fibroid in my uterus.
The doctor said this had nothing to do with my
pain. He must be right, because the pain went
away. Do I need to pursue the fibroid thing any
further? The doctor never said I should. -- L.C.

muscle. The uterus is a muscular sac with a
specialized lining for the support of a
developing fetus. Fibroids are very prevalent.
Forty percent to 50 percent of women over the age
of 35 have one or more of them.
Their cause is
baffling. Genes have some role, because they run
in families. Hormones influence their growth. As
evidence of that, they enlarge during pregnancy
and usually regress after menopause, when
estrogen production wanes.
fibroids are incidental findings that need no
attention. Im putting your fibroid in that
fibroids can lead to heavy menstrual periods.
Sometimes theyre the source of pelvic pain.
Large fibroids pressing on the bladder give rise
to frequent urination. Large fibroids also can
complicate pregnancy, depending on their size and
location. Extremely rarely are they implicated in
You should let
your gynecologist know that a fibroid was
discovered, but you dont need to take any
more action than that.
