    It would not surprise me if sometime in the future our landfills will be mined for materials we now throw away.

    Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

    85. Years Ago Today.

    "The Lone Ranger."

    Debuts on Detroit's WZYZ radio station to the stirring notes on the "William Tel Overture" and a shout of 'Hi-yo, Silver! Away!


    Source: History.com


    Remember as a little boy growing up in Miami the "Lone Ranger and Tonto" was my favorite radio program! Very popular as it was on 3 nights a week on Monday Wednesday Friday, radio station WQAM, 7:30 P.M. In bed in my little room. And when it was over at 8:00 P.M. my Mom would come in my little room, say a prayer. Then Mom would turn off the lights and say, "Time to go to sleep now." Was a fun time.

    Valentine's Day Already! :)

    If it's not Valentine's Day and you see a man in a flower shop, you can probably start up a conversation by asking, "What did you do?"

    The only thing worse than a "know-it-all" is a "say-it-all". :)

    When someone says you're elderly, it's just their nice way of saying you're old.

    One nice thing about egotists:

    They don't talk about other people. :)

    Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'prejudice' these days...


    A customer asked, "In what aisle can I find the Polish sausage?"


    The clerk asks, "Are you Polish?"


    The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something.


    If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?


    Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?


    Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?


    Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?


    Or if I asked for some Whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?"


    The clerk says, "No, I probably wouldn't."


    The guy says, "Well then, because I asked for Polish sausage, why did you ask me if I'm Polish?"


    The clerk replied,

    "Because you're in Ace Hardware." :D

    Did the clerk give you directions to the grocery store?
