They read like a travel agent’s itinerary of the world’s most beautiful places to visit . . . but you can also live there and for very little money.
You’ve worked hard for your money - you want to retire in comfort, not worry about where the next meal is coming from, have easily affordable help available to you should you need it . . . and the prestige factor of living in paradise ain’t bad either.

ties in which to live in retirement . . . and comfort.
Regular readers of The Paper are familiar with one of our major, and favorite, correspondents, Michael Yon. Michael is the brialliant war correspondent who covered Iraq and Afghanistand and is a frequent commentator on world events.
Michael presently is on sabbatical, writing his book, “The Bomb Boys.” He lives in absolute comfort in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
The people in Chiang Mai are wonderful and highly conservative. Think 1950s America. There is of course the normal wild side that so many westerners gravitate to, but that is backwater compared to the norm. There are loads of well educated Thai and farang (foreigners). The foreigners come from all over America, Europe, Australia, etc., and so it is no problem finding good Thai and foreign friends. There are many sorts of associations and clubs, such as the documentary film club, the photo club, and so on. There are some excellent photographers in the club.
There are countless gyms and fitness centers. Chiang Mai people love yoga, and so loads of yoga studios.
Shopping is at western standards, as are movie theaters, etc.
The food here beats pretty much anywhere in the world that I have been, and that is about 65 countries and 48 states. There is plenty of authentic Thai, but then also great Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, US.

a bus station. I normally go from the car, to check in, through security, to the gate, in 15 mins, sometimes 20 if crowded, but seldom 30. Today took 10 mins. That means 10 mins from the car all the way to the gate. In America I hate to travel by airplane. Here it is easy and comfortable. Thanks to its weather and low cost of living, Thailand has been on retirees' radars for years, and Chiang Mai is cheap, even by Thai standards.
"For under $2,000 a month, I live like a king," says Barry, a Canadian who relocated to Chiang Mai in early 2009. Since then, he has rented a 1,200-square-foot condo for a little more than $400 per month. Groceries are no big concern, usually running him about $50 per month. Restaurants cost about twice that at $100 per month -- and he goes out to eat almost every day. Barry says that Chiang Mai

has just about everything he needs. "There are Western-style restaurants, entertainment venues and social events," he says. The city has several modern hospitals. "I had an emergency spinal fusion two years ago at a cost of 280,000 baht (about $9,300 at the time). In Canada, medical coverage is free, but the waiting time is sometimes long. Here, the service is almost instantaneous and very professional."
More routine medical issues are so inexpensive, Barry says, that he doesn't need insurance to cover them. "Going to a dentist for a checkup and cleaning is 500 baht," or about $17. Over the 20th century, many retirees moved from New England, California and the Midwest to the sunny and sparsely populated Sun Belt, where low taxes and warm weather beckoned. Today, many Americans are moving much farther afield to enjoy a new life at a low cost. Thousands are migrating to Asia, South America, Europe and beyond to stretch their retirement dollars. And foreign countries, eager for the

They had to use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was hot in the summer and cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy determined that one day he would push that outhouse into the creek.
One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the little boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek. So he got a large stick and started pushing. Finally, the outhouse

boost to their economies, have taken notice.
With so many nations interested in attracting retirees from abroad, Americans are spoiled for choice. Bankrate, Inc. uncovers six up-and-coming destinations where retirees can usually live on an income of $2,000 a month. In some cases, retirees are already living there for far less.
Argentina: Bankrate reports that although Buenos Aires is pricier than most parts of South America, it is still a bargain compared to most American cities. A one-bedroom apartment in a good neighborhood can be rented for less than $400 per month or bought for less than $70,000. Internet, cable and electricity combined rarely costs more than $100 per month. The city's comprehensive subway system and buses make transportation cheap. One ride on the subway costs 2.50 Argentine pesos (about 50 cents). Health care in Argentina is a bargain, thanks to the country's public health care sys-
After a series of tests and interviews, the Chief Deputy finally called him in to his office for the young man's last interview. The Chief Deputy said, "You're a big strong kid and you can really shoot. So far your qualifications all look good, but we have, what you might call, an "Attitude Suitability Test" that you must take before you can be accepted. We just don't let anyone carry our badge, son."
Then, sliding a service pistol and a box of ammo across the desk, the Chief said, "Take this pistol and go out and shoot: six illegal aliens, six lawyers, six meth dealers, six Muslim extremists, and a rabbit." "Why the rabbit?" queried the applicant.
"You pass," said the Chief Deputy. "When can you start?" ••••• Several days ago, as I left a meeting at a hotel; I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down. I was looking for my keys. They were not in my pockets. A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing. Suddenly I realized I
tem and surplus of doctors. The quality and affordability of Argentina's medical services has led to a booming medical tourism industry. In 2011, more than 100,000 visitors came to Argentina to receive medical care, according to Argentina's National Institute of Tourism Promotion.
For most expatriates, the costliest part of Buenos Aires is dining in the city's European-style cafes, restaurants and night spots. While movies are relatively cheap in Argentina (a ticket costs less than $8 in most places), dinner out at a restaurant usually costs between $25 and $45. An espresso will cost around $2.50 and can be found in any of the city's thousands of small open-air cafes.

must have left them in the car. Frantically, I headed for the parking lot. My husband has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition. My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them. His theory is that the car will be stolen.
As I burst through the door, I came to a terrifying conclusion; his theory was right. The parking lot was empty. I immediately called the police. I gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen. Then I made the most difficult call of all, "Honey," I stammered. (I always call him "honey" in times like these.) "I left my keys in the car and it's been stolen." There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard his voice. "Are you kidding me," he barked, "I dropped you off!" Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, "Well, come and get me." He

Vancouver, British Columbia: While it doesn't have a reputation as a retiree destination, Vancouver remains a viable option for Americans who want to stay close to home while living the cosmopolitan life across the border. The biggest hurdle for Vancouver-bound Americans is real estate. With the most expensive housing prices in Canada and some of the most expensive property in the world, Vancouver is not an investment option for many retirees. The average house price is $857,400, according to CanadianBusiness.com. Renting is a possibility: Onebedroom apartments in downtown Vancouver start at around 1,400 Canadian dollars (nearly $1,364). Food and entertainment cost about the same as in Seattle, which is less than three hours away by car.
While Americans may not save much on rent or living costs by moving to Canada, one expense is considerably lower up North: health care. "I save over $400 per month on medicine, and I never have to wait to see my doctor," says Betty Segel, an American who has lived in suburban Vancouver for five years. Retirees in Canada have access to the country's public health care system, which provides free care to residents, including expats with a permanent residence in the country.
For Americans concerned about health care costs, the added premium of Vancouver property just might be worth it. One area that does not appear practical for retirees, and this was a disappointment to us, is Ireland.
Good friend, fellow Kiwanian, and real estate broker, Tim Cunning, is in Ireland. In addition to a family holiday with his
dad and brother (wife Marie and two children stayed behind this trip they’ll be traveling later this year together), Tim is scouting out upscale properties for clients. At our request, he also looked into the idea of inexpensive housing for retirees.
Doesn’t appear to be practical. He writes: “The same thing happened here as in the US. Prices were overinflated and now are about 1/2 of what they were in pre 2007.
Small properties are going for 120,000 ($155,855) to 250,000 ($324800) Euros. Average home is between 300,000 ($389,600) to 400,000 ($519,519) Euro.
There is a government stamp fee (sales tax) on the sale of homes that is graduated depending on the sales price, as high as 9%. Commissions are between 1-1/2 to 3%. Property tax is based on a value that you declare, but if you undervalue your property to lower your tax and you then want to sell it, you can only sell it for the value you declared.
So, if you’re looking for a castle, or a large estate, then Tim can probably help you with Irish property . . . but low cost real property and low cost of living? Probably Ireland is not your home. There are, as you have seen, a number of areas you may want to consider relocation and retirement. Remember, you worked hard. You earned it!

retorted, "I will, as soon as I can convince this cop I didn't steal your car." The Chocolate Thief
An Italian and an Irishman entered a chocolate store. As they were busy looking, the Irishman stole three chocolate bars. As they left the store, the Irishman said to the Italian, "Man I'm the best thief. I stole three chocolate bars and no one saw me. You can't beat that."
The Italian, "You want to see something better? Let's go back to the shop and I'll show you real stealing."
So they went to the counter and the Italian said to the shopkeeper, "Do you want to see magic?" The shopkeeper "Yes."
The Italian said, "Give me one chocolate bar." The shopkeeper gave him one, and he ate it.
The Italian asked for a second bar, and he ate that as well. Then he asked for the third, and finished that one too. The shopkeeper asked, "But where's the magic?"
The Italian replied, "Check in my friend's pocket, and you'll find all three bars of chocolate." You just CAN'T beat an Italian ... Female Medical Exam

Escondido Police Lock Down Escondido High School Following Report of Armed Man
On Thursday, May 9th, at about 10:00 AM, the Escondido Police Department received a report of a male on the campus of Escondido High School with an Airsoft rifle. The caller stated the male was walking around the northern area of the school (baseball fields) and described as: “High School” age Long brown hair All black clothing Black hard plastic mask Black backpack Black gloves
The male did not appear to be concerned about who was seeing him. Officers were dispatched immediately. They arrived at the school within minutes. As they arrived, EPD advised the school what was happening and to lock down. School staff had the campus cleared as officers were arriving. EPD had not been able to deter-
mine if the male seen had an Airsoft rifle or if it was a real gun.
Several EPD officers searched the school and San Diego Sheriff’s ASTREA helicopter assisted. The search of the school was swift and officers did not encounter delays or problems during that search.
While searching, officers had additional information that someone had heard three shots being fired near the school; however, they later determined that the sounds were from an adjacent apartment complex that was south of the campus. They searched that area as well and could not find anyone or evidence that there was gunshots or shots from an Airsoft at that location. The search of the school lasted about 65 minutes. Officers could not locate the male they were looking for and consulted with school administration. The school was declared off lockdown at 11:15 AM. Officers remained to see if anyone had additional inforsalesman pick us up and drive us home. We decided that was too much work and hassle so we just rented a car, had a leisurely (though slightly more expensive) drive home, stopped at a Sizzler Restaurant in Vista (which we adore) and had a sumptuous feast . . . then made the final drive home. A fun day, a tiring day (witness my two hour nap upon arriving home . . . and Evelyn falling asleep on the couch at the same time, albeit for about an hour instead of two). We are both, however, filled with fun memories.
Man About Town
Well, we gone and went and done did it.
We took our ride on the B17 from Ramona to John Wayne Airport. Originally, we had planned on making the flight, then grabbing an AMTRAK from Irvine, CA., to Oceanside, then transferring to a Sprinter (bus) from Oceanside to Escondido Transit Center, then having one of my

After the call was cleared, EPD School Resource Officer La Rose and detectives investigated the report. They developed leads and began to focus on a juvenile they believed was involved in the original call. It became apparent that there never was a man on the campus with a gun and that the original caller had made the story up.
At about 4:10 PM, EPD arrested a 17 year-old male at his home without incident. The teenager was arrested for filing a false report of an emergency. Wanted Fugitive: Wayne Arthur Swanson

Wayne Arthur Swanson is wanted on suspicion of dealing drugs in the North County. There are several warrants out for his arrest. Swanson is known to hang out in Fallbrook and Valley Center. If you see Swanson, do not approach him. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information on Swanson's whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. You can remain anonymous and be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
Money Order Scammer
The San Diego County Sheriff's Department and Crime Stoppers want your help in identifying and finding a man wanted in connection with a string of money order scams.
The M.O. is always the same. He walks into an Albertsons store to purchase a money order for $500, but is short $20. He pulls a $20 bill from his pocket and recounts the money in front of the cashier. With a quick hand, he pockets six to eight $20 bills before handing back the money to the cashier. The cashier then completes the transaction and issues a money order for $500 without recounting the money.
The man you see in the surveillance photo has targeted Albertsons stores in unincorporated El Cajon, Santee, Alpine, Lemon Grove, and San Marcos between January and April of this year. He is also wanted in Santa Barbara County for the same crimes. Anyone with information
about the suspect is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. You can remain anonymous and be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

I thought it would be a great experience for these two Air Force pilots to meet and have a chance to do some “hangar flying.” Stu had been an F86 pilot but had fallen in love with the P51 so, after his service hitch, and even after he became an airline pilot for Pan Am for 26 years, he always made time to fly the P51, his first love.
After retiring from PanAm he became one of the P51 pilots for the Wings of Freedom Tour, taking civilians for plane rides and giving them the adventure of a lifetime. Stu loved the plane so much he bought his own personal P51. His whole family is trained in,

In a somewhat parallel career, Ozzie moved on to Advanced Multi-Engine Training. Craig AFB just happened to have a fleet of P51’s for training which afforded Ozzie some cherished access to this plane. Later, he would transfer to Japan where he flew combat cargo into Korea.

Mike Loarie. I just don’t think the city can go wrong, regardless of who they select. We have some outstanding talent.
Stopped by another of our favorite eateries, the Jalapeno Grill, on the Mother’s Day afternoon. We asked Ray Alto, the owner, if the AMGEN Tour and the hot weather hurt or helped him. “Oh, it helped us. Lots of people down here both today and over the past several days. The heat probably hurt us a little, but we’ve been steady all day. We haven’t been slammed . . . just steady.

Info for Seniors
You've just retired and wonder what it will cost to have fun - it depends what you’re seeking. As a senior you receive a discount at most places. Average senior dance $5. Many restaurants offer discounted senior meals.
Buy a year’s pass at your favored theme park. The San Diego Zoos cost $55. Movie theaters give you a break at matinee showings. Live theatre give discounts as well. Balboa Park Museums free attendance every Tuesday. Each Tuesday different ones. Do a little homework and you can have lots of fun at affordable cost. William Hart

cessful lawyer. So a United Way volunteer paid the lawyer a visit in his lavish office.
The lawyer thinks for a minute and says, 'First, did your research also show you that my mother is dying after a long, painful illness and she has huge medical bills that are far beyond her ability to pay?'
Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbles, 'Uh . . . no, I didn't know that.' 'Secondly,' says the lawyer, 'did it show that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support his wife and six children?'

Some Helpful Hints
Save those fake preapproved credit cards you get in the mail -- you can use them as glue spreaders or shims. When driving screws into dense hardwoods, lubricate them with wax or soap to prevent stripping the hole. Double-sided carpet tape works great for temporarily fastening templates without leaving screw or nail holes. If you happen to ding your wood in the course of a project, use a wet cloth and a clothes iron to steam out the dent. Save that old electric carving knife. It's the perfect foam saw for upholstery projects.
When painting a surface that needs to be primed – new drywall or wood – tint the primer to match the finish coat, reducing your painting project from three coats to two. Sand the face of the hammer head with sandpaper to help the hammer grip the nail
and prevent the nail head from slipping. Wrap paint rollers and brushes in a plastic bag between coats to keep them full of paint and prevent them from drying out. Don't try to work with electrical or plumbing projects you are not confident about. It often costs more to repair later and can be dangerous. When drilling though ceramic tile or natural stone, place masking tape on the surface. This makes marking the tile easier and helps the drill bit stay in one place. When building or renovating your home, always print a budget breakdown. If you're not sure how to do one, invest in a professional estimator or quantity surveyor to do it for you. The printout will show you the cost of every trade, nail and screw, giving you an accurate figure to base your budget on. This information is great for comparing quotes as you will have done the homework and know the costs!

AMGEN has come and gone. At least the first stage has. Lots of publicity for Escondido, all positive. Hot, hot, hot. Don’t envy those bicycle racers nor the vendors who worked out in that hot sun. We watched it on television and enjoyed the coverage. It was neat spotting familiar landmarks and knowing almost exactly where the racers were at all times. Now, the rest of the nation knows a bit more about our area; what we look like . . . a true picture of paradise (but not when it’s that hot!) ••••• We’ll probably go into this in a bit more detail once more facts are known about the proposal(s) being entertained by the Escondido City Council concerning the desire of Dennis “Coach” Snyder, Founder and CEO of Escondido Charter High School and its Elementary System, to acquire the property formerly housing the East Valley Parkway Library and generally referred to as the E.

I absolutely worship the ground Coach Snyder walks on and admire all the work he’s done in putting together a first rate school system, and am grateful for all the outstanding students he has graduated into our communities.
But I can’t get over the nagging question of whether this is an appropriate use of property that was paid for by Escondido taxpayers, to be used as a Community Center, not a building complex for a private school system. If approved, there’s no question in my mind that Coach Snyder would do another magnificent job of training even more students to become outstanding, well educated citizens. But I’d like to know more details.
The meetings are held in Executive Session so the Council may hear the proposals in private. I’m hoping the Council, whatever they decided, will present the results of these meetings, and their final proposals to the public so that we might weigh and examine the merits and/or demerits of such a project. All good people involved in the negotiations, but the bottom line is, we have to ask ourselves if this is the right course of action. For the community at large, for the taxpayers. We await with great interest a report from the City Council. her latest artwork in the Gallery at the Bernardo Winery Tasting Room which is open Monday through Friday 9am-5pm, and Saturday/Sunday 10am-6pm.

Microsoft Refusal to Fix W8 Creates Notebook Bonanza
When you’re unhappy with a product that you just purchased you take it back or ship it back to where you bought it and demand either a refund or another product, right? Ever wonder what happens to those “new” electronic products like printers, monitors, PCs, tablets, notebooks, smart phones etc after they are returned?
For the most part returned consumer electronics products are sent to a processing center. Since most consumer electronics are manufactured overseas, returned products go to a processing center to be tested somewhere in the USA. Not surprisingly far more than half of returned “new” consumer electronics products are found to have no defects. Defective products are sent to repair centers or back to the factory. Products found to be defect free, by
Supporting Affordable Housing with Practical Tax Policy
Current affordable housing programs, like the non-profit Habitat for Humanity, works to provide home buying options for qualified lowincome families. The nonprofits refurbish or construct new properties, purchasing families contribute mandatory work hours to the construction, and each project is subsidized by additional volunteer work hours and donations. The result is a nice home that can be sold by the non-profit to the low-income family at an affordable cost.
However, these programs, and the homebuyers, sometimes face a significant challenge with property tax assessments. The home is often worth much more than the purchase price. Because property taxes are usually
law, cannot be sold as new, even though they are new. They are repackaged, marked, as “refurbished,” and given reduced warranty (usually 90 days instead of one year). For the most part the big box retailers like Best Buy, Staples and Office Depot aren’t interested in trying to merchandise refurbished products that would compete with their shelf stock of new products. The (new) refurbished products with reduced warranties are sold or auctioned to wholesale distributors who resell them to Internet and small storefront retailers. One of our vendors, Genica Corp in Temecula, specializes in this type of “distressed merchandise.”
The consumer revolt stemming from Microsoft’s attempt to force W8 (Windows 8) onto retail PC buyers has resulted in a dramatic drop in PC sales and massive returns from new PC buyers who found W8 unacceptable. The two largest PC sellers (not makers) HP and Dell have been devastated by the slump in retail PC sales and overwhelmed by the tidal wave of returns. Dell has been particularly hard hit because so many of their PCs are sold to relatively unsophisticated users who buy sight unseen in response to TV and Internet sales pitches. When these folks get a look at the W8 Metro interface they simply cancel the sale and return the PC. I visited Genica Corp in Temecula last week and found their warehouse jammed with thousands of “new” refurbished Dell notebook and desktop PCs. We won’t touch Dell or HP “refurbs” because of their low quality
assessed at the fair market value, the market price determines the property tax that the homeowner must pay. These taxes are often unaffordable for low-income families. To solve this problem, I am authoring Senate Bill 499, which will require local County Assessors to consider the affordable housing contract restrictions and the purchase price when valuing property taxes.
It is important that our state support these non-profit programs with practical policies that help families afford homeownership. Senator Mark Wyland represents the people of the 38th Senate District, which includes Rancho Bernardo, Carlsbad, Oceanside, San Marcos, Escondido, and Vista.

and service performance but there are a limited number of “refurbs” available from quality notebook manufacturers like ASUS, ACER, Lenovo and Toshiba. We “cherry pick” the best deals and make them available to our customers in both Windows 7 and 8.
Is Windows 8 really that bad? Not at all. After all, W8 is essentially Windows 7 with the Metro interface and Windows 7 is a fine operating system. The major problem with W8 is the Metro interface, an interface designed for touch screen applications. While fine for tablets and smart phones, Metro is clunky and inefficient as a keyboard/mouse interface. Eliminating the Metro interface and replacing it with a standard start button and desktop would be a simple task for Microsoft but to date they have refused to offer this option.
Fortunately there are a couple of third party add-ons for W8 (Star 8 and Classic Shell) that eliminate the Metro interface and bring back the classic Windows desktop. This virtually eliminates user problems with W8.
We put “Classic Shell” on any W8 desktop or notebook we sell and, as a courtesy, offer it on any W8 PC that comes in to our shop for service. The pressure from PC sellers and the indig-
nity of seeing users resort to third party fixes to make W8 acceptable will likely force Microsoft to offer a standard interface alternative to Metro later this year. In the meantime there is a third party alternative for the hated W8 interface and you can get it here at The Computer Factory.
If Only the Bullet Train Could Carry Water
Water issues have long been a matter of intense debate in California. As the nation’s leading agricultural state, as well as its most populous, California’s thirst has become almost unquenchable.
At the same time, the $68 billion high-speed rail project is progressing. Apparently, a train that will initially serve passengers between Madera and Bakersfield takes priority over badly-needed water deliveries to farms and millions of people. Shouldn’t our scarce financial resources be spent on projects that impact everyone and not on a train that will never serve the vast majority of Californians?

‘Chuckles’ Cont. from Page 11 The stricken United Way rep begins to stammer an apology, but is cut off again. 'Thirdly, did your research also show you that my sister's husband died in dreadful car accident, leaving her penniless with a mortgage and three children, one of whom is disabled and another that has learning disabilities requiring an array of private tutors?'
The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, says, 'I'm so sorry, I had no idea.' And the lawyer says, 'So . . . if I didn't give any money to them, what makes you think I'd give any to you? Think Ahead
A man brings his best buddy home for dinner. His wife screams at him. "My hair and makeup are not done, the house is a mess, the dishes are not done, I'm still in my pajamas and I can't be bothered with cooking tonight! What the hell did you bring him home for?” "Because he's thinking of getting married...." Lutherans By Garrison Keillor
I have made fun of Lutherans for years - who wouldn't, if you lived in North Dakota? But I have also sung with Lutherans and that is one of the main joys of life, along with hot baths and fresh sweet corn.
We make fun of Lutherans for their blandness, their excessive calm, their fear of giving offense, their lack of speed, also for their secret fondness for macaroni and cheese. But nobody sings like they do.
If you ask an audience in New York City, a relatively Lutheranless place, to sing along on the chorus of 'Michael Row Your Boat Ashore,' they will look daggers at you as if you had asked them to strip to their underwear. But if you do this among Lutherans they'll smile and row that boat ashore and up on the beach! And down the road! Lutherans are bred from childhood to sing in four-part harmony. It's a talent that comes from sitting on the lap of someone singing alto or tenor or bass and hearing the harmonic intervals by putting your little head against that person's rib cage. It's natural for Lutherans to sing in harmony. We're too modest to be soloists, too worldly to sing in unison. When you're singing in the key of
C and you slide into the A7th and D7th chords, all two hundred of you, it's an emotionally fulfilling moment.
I once sang the bass line of "Children of the Heavenly Father" in a room with about three thousand Lutherans in it; and when we finished, we all had tears in our eyes, partly from the promise that God will not forsake us, partly from the proximity of all those lovely voices. By our joining in harmony, we somehow promise that we will not forsake each other. I do believe this: These Lutherans are the sort of people you could call up when you're in deep distress. If you're dying, they'll comfort you. If you're lonely, they'll talk to you. And if you're hungry, they'll give you tuna salad! The following list was compiled by a 20th century Lutheran who, observing other Lutherans, wrote down exactly what he saw or heard: 1. Lutherans believe in prayer, but would practically die if asked to pray out loud. 2. Lutherans like to sing, except when confronted with a new hymn or a hymn with more than four stanzas. 3. Lutherans believe their pastors will visit them in the hospital, even if they don't notify them that they are there. 4. Lutherans usually follow the official liturgy and will feel it is their way of suffering for their sins. 5. Lutherans believe in miracles and even expect miracles, especially during their stewardship visitation programs or when passing the plate. 6. Lutherans feel that applauding for their children's choirs would make the kids too proud and conceited. 7. Lutherans think that the Bible forbids them from crossing the aisle while passing the peace. 8. Lutherans drink coffee as if it were the Third Sacrament. 9. Some Lutherans believe that an ELCS bride and an LCMS groom make for a mixed marriage.
(For those of you who are not Lutherans, ELCS is Evangelical Lutheran Church Synod and LCMS is Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. When and where I grew up in Minnesota, intermarriage between the two was about as popular as Lutherans and Catholics marrying.) 10. Lutherans feel guilty for not staying to clean up after their own wedding reception in the Fellowship Hall. 11. Lutherans are willing to pay up to one dollar for a meal at church. 12. Lutherans think that Garrison Keillor stories are totally factual. 13. Lutherans still serve Jell-O in the proper liturgical color of the season and think that peas in a tuna noodle casserole add too much color. 14. Lutherans believe that it is OK to poke fun at themselves and never take themselves too seriously.
And finally, you know you're a Lutheran when: •It's 100 degrees, with 90% humidity, and you still have coffee after the service;
•You hear something really funny during the sermon and smile as loudly as you can;
•Donuts are a line item in the church budget, just like coffee;
•The communion cabinet is open to all, but the coffee cabinet is locked up tight; •When you watch a 'Star Wars' movie and they say, 'May the Force be with you,' you respond, 'and also with you'.
