If someone comes to your front door saying they are conducting a survey on deer ticks and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around, do not do it! IT IS A SCAM; they only want to see you naked!
I wish Id gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid now.
One beautiful Sunday morning, a minister announced to his congregation:
"My good people, I have here in my hands three sermons ... a $100 sermon that lasts five minutes, a $50 sermon that lasts fifteen minutes, and a $10 sermon that lasts a full hour.
"Now, well take the collection and see which one Ill deliver."
A lawyer was well into a lengthy cross-examination when he stopped and said: "Your honor, a juror is asleep."
The judge ruled: "You put him to sleep; You wake him up."
Man Killed by Lightning.
A miner at Blendville was instantly killed by a stroke of lightning while riding on horseback. The first intimation of the tragedy was when a riderless horse quivering with fright dashed up to the residence of Mrs. Danforth, in West Blendville, and nickered at the stable door.
Mrs. Danforth saw that it was her sons horse. A search party was started, and at a point on the road just south of the Bolen plant their worst fears were realized. Albert W. Danforth was found lying by the roadside stone dead, with the mark left by lightning on his left temple.
An examination later showed that the bolt struck him in the head passing through his hat, which was torn to fragments, and down the outside of his left leg, splitting his shoe to pieces as it passed out between his toes.
Death must have been instantaneous and the unfortunate man fell from the horse which escaped injury.
