From the email bag ...

As we begin yet another new year, we thought we might take a somewhat different tack and start it out with a series of columns by sharing some of the humor and interesting information we have encountered in our email inbox. 

In a year in which we hope for recovery, restoration and relaxation with which to face whatever might be coming down the road, we thought a month of jokes, interspersed with a tad bit of learning mostly useless things, might just do the trick. And thus we present a treasure trove of this and that from our email bag.

We start with the following thoughts on life ...

How come we choose from just two people to run for president and over 50 for Miss America ?

When I was young we used to go “skinny dipping,” now I just “chunky dunk.”

I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose-fitting clothing. If I HAD any loose-fitting clothing, I wouldn’t have signed up in the first place!

Wouldn’t it be nice if whenever we messed up our life we could simply press “Ctrl Alt Delete” and start all over?

Don’t argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

Wouldn’t you know it....Brain cells come and brain cells go, but FAT cells live forever.

And remember: Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

And then, there are these fun facts, which may or may not still be true, but can, nonetheless, be called up at will to amaze family and friends ...

ALABAMA ... Was the first place to have 9-1-1, started in 1968.

ALASKA ... One out of every 64 people has a pilot’s license.

ARIZONA ... Is the only state in the continental U.S. that doesn’t follow Daylight Savings Time.
