Here are a few things to think about!

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

If the professor on Gilligan’s Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can’t he fix a hole in a boat?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They’re both dogs!

If Wiley E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn’t he just buy dinner?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys and apes?

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, “Where’s the self-help section?” She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

What if there were no hypothetical questions?

If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

Is there another word for synonym?

Where do forest rangers go to “get away from it all?”

What do you do when you see an endangered animal eating an endangered plant?

If a parsley farmer is sued, can they garnish his wages?

Would a fly without wings be called a walk?

Why do they lock gas station bathrooms? Are they afraid someone will clean them?

If a turtle doesn't have a shell, is he homeless or naked?

Can vegetarians eat animal crackers?

If the police arrest a mime, do they tell him he has the right to remain silent?

Why do they put Braille on the drive-through bank machines?

How do they get deer to cross the road only at those yellow road signs?

What was the best thing before sliced bread?

One nice thing about egotists: They don’t talk about other people.

Does the Little Mermaid wear an algebra?

Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?

How is it possible to have a civil war?

If one synchronized swimmer drowns, do the rest drown too?

If you ate both pasta and antipasto, would you still be hungry?

If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?

Whose cruel idea was it for the word “Lisp” to have “S” in it?

Why are hemorrhoids called “hemorrhoids” instead of “assteroids”?

Why is it called tourist season (or snowbird season) if we can’t shoot at them?

There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one.

1.     The WAPO AED group has two CPR Anytime kits that are intended to allow people to train themselves in hands-only CPR.  The time required to train yourself is about 30 minutes. 

2.     Each WAPO responder is trained in CPR as well as the usage of an AED. However, the first person on the scene is normally a spouse or other member of the household.  Thus, it is best for everyone to be trained in CPR.  Contact one of our facilitators to learn more:

a.     LarryEamigh   

     (352) 753- 7449  larry@eamigh.com

b.     Ross Irlam        

     (352) 561-4003  rossirlam@gmail.com

c.      JerryTumbush - 

     (352) 430-1657  jtumbush@hotmail.com

3.     They will coordinate the availability of a CPR Anytime kit with Mini-Anne  for you to check out and learn CPR.



Here's how to use the Mini-Anne you just checked out:

      1.     Play the DVD inside the CPR Anytime Kit.  The DVD includes instructions for inflating the mannequin.  There are sanitizers in the kit if you wish to sanitize the mannequin before inflating it.  There is a clicker in the mannequin that clicks when you have depressed the chest of the mannequin sufficiently.  Some people will have trouble making the clicker click.  Do your best and remember what is said on the DVD, “Any CPR is better than no CPR.”

a.     When the DVD initializes, select English.

b.    Select “Learn Adult Hands-Only” CPR and follow the verbal instructions.

c.     If you wish to practice, select “Practice Hands-Only CPR” on the DVD.

     2.     There are other lifesaving related topics on the DVD that are available to watch.

      3.     Please return the CPR anytime kit when you are finished with it to Larry and thanks for learning CPR.

So why link to sites that are NEVER available?  Good question. Let's start a quest to find sites that are more amenable. (Of course, you may have to click around to find the right game but.......and then there's the advertisements you have to suffer through.... but all-in-all it does get you to some games to sooth your mind.)

NOTE:  You may be using up any data time you signed up for unless you have an unlimited plan....

For the most part, I have avoided any site that wants you to "sign up" or give them information (that can only be used to try to sell you something or is needed to put you on a list that others obtain). Avoid these type of sites at all costs.  The hassle just isn't worth it.....

"Ticket to Ride" is a song by the English rock group the Beatles, written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. Issued as a single in April 1965, it became the Beatles' seventh consecutive number 1 hit in the United Kingdom and their third consecutive number 1 hit in the United States, and similarly topped national charts in Canada, Australia and Ireland. The song was also included on their 1965 studio album Help! Recorded at EMI Studios in London in February that year, the track marked a progression in the Beatles' work through the incorporation of drone and harder-sounding instrumentation relative to their previous releases. Among music critics, Ian MacDonald describes the song as "psychologically deeper than anything the Beatles had recorded before" and "extraordinary for its time".

"Ticket to Ride" appears in a sequence in the Beatles' second feature film, Help!, directed by Richard Lester. Live performances by the band were included in the Beatles at Shea Stadium concert film, on the live album documenting their concerts at the Hollywood Bowl, and on the 1996 Anthology 2 box set. In 1969, "Ticket to Ride" was covered by the Carpenters, whose version peaked at number 54 on the Billboard Hot 100.

"Ticket to Ride" was written by John Lennon, although credited to Lennon–McCartney. In his authorised biography, however, Paul McCartney contradicts this, saying: "we sat down and wrote it together … give him 60 percent of it … we sat down together and worked on that for a full three-hour songwriting session." Speaking in 1980, Lennon said that McCartney's contribution was limited to "the way Ringo [Starr] played the drums" on the recording.
