The child was a typical four-year-old girl -- cute, inquisitive, and bright as a new penny. When she expressed difficulty in grasping the concept of marriage, her father decided to pull out their wedding photo album, thinking visual images would help. One page after another, he pointed out the bride arriving at the church, the entrance, the wedding ceremony, the recessional, the reception, etc.
“Now do you understand?” he asked.
“I think so,” she said, “is that when mommy came to work for us?”

I was wondering:
How can there be self-help “groups?”
Why did kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
If you wear an antennae to a wedding, will the reception be better?
If 7-11 is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, why are there locks on the doors?
I’ll Bet You Didn’t Know and Didn’t Care…
If you place a tiny amount of liquor on a scorpion, it will instantly go mad and sting itself to death.
(Who was the sadist who discovered this?)

From the Sheridan Community Chorus Choir Loft
We had our pot luck planning dinner on Saturday, 11/1/08 in Sheridan. We must have the very best cooks and bakers in the world! The turnout was truly inspiring and everyone was very enthusiastic to get this community chorus re-started in a new direction. Thanks to all of you who attended. The next meeting will be Tuesday, December 2 @ 6:00 pm at The Saint John Bosco Auditorium (2777 Rt. 20) in Sheridan. We need you and we need you to invite your friends!
