Jokes My wife has not spoken to me in three days. I think it has something to do with what happened on Sunday night when she thought she heard a noise downstairs. She nudged me and whispered, "Wake up, wake up!"

"What's the matter?" I asked. "There are burglars in the kitchen. I think they're eating the tuna casserole I made tonight." "That'll teach them!" I replied.

One dark night two men were walking home after a party and decided to take a shortcut through the cemetery just for laughs. Right in the middle of the cemetery they were startled by a tap-tap-tapping noise coming from the misty shadows. Trembling with fear, they found an old man with a hammer and chisel, chipping away at one of the headstones. "Holy cow, Mister," one of them said after catching his breath, "You scared us half to death we thought you were a ghost! What are you doing working here so late at night?" "Those fools!" the old man grumbled. "They misspelled my name!

Three vampires walk into a bar. The waitress comes up to them and asks them what they'll have. ? The first vampire says, "I'll have a glass of O Positive." The second vampire says, "I'll have a glass of AB Negative." The third vampire says, "I'm the designated driver. I'll just have a glass of plasma." The waitress turns toward the bartender and yells, "Gimme two bloods and one blood lite!"

A cab driver picks up a nun. She gets into the cab, and the cab driver won't stop staring at her. She asks him why he is staring and he replies, "I have a question to ask you but I don't want to offend you." She answers: "My dear son, you cannot offend me. When you're as old as I am and have been a nun as long as I have, you get a chance to see and hear just about everything. I'm sure that there's nothing you could say or ask that I would find offensive." "Well, I've always had a fantasy to have a nun kiss me." She responds, "Well, let's see what we can do about that: #1, you have to be single and #2 you must be a Catholic." The cab driver is very excited and says, "Yes, I am single and I'm Catholic too!" The nun says, "OK, pull into the next alley." He does and the nun fulfils his fantasy. But when they get back on the road, the cab driver starts crying. "My dear child." said the nun, "Why are you crying?" "Forgive me sister, but I have sinned. I lied, I must confess, I'm married and a I'm a Baptist." The nun says, "That's OK, I am on the way to a Halloween party, and my name is Kevin."

I'll bet living in a nudist colony takes all the fun out of Halloween.

Warning: Revenue Email Scam The Revenue Commissioners have warned of another fraudulent email purporting to come from Revenue seeking personal information from taxpayers in connection with a tax refund. This phishing email is headed "You are eligible to receive a tax refund of â‚Ź320.50" and links to a convincing reproduction of the www.revenue.ie website. Recipients are asked to submit personal details including date of birth and debit/credit card details. This email, which is the latest in a succession of scams targeting Irish taxpayers, did not issue from Revenue.

The Revenue Commissioners never send emails which require customers to send personal information via email or pop-up windows. Anyone who receives an email purporting to be from Revenue and suspects it to be fraudulent or a scam should simply delete it. Anyone who is actually awaiting a tax refund should contact their local Revenue Office to check its status. Anyone who provided personal information in response to these fraudulent emails should contact their bank or credit card company immediately.

How to get out of Housecleaning -- Windows: Layers of dirty film on windows and screens provide a helpful filter against harmful and aging rays from the sun. Call it an SPF factor of 15 and leave it alone. -- Cobwebs: Artfully draped over lampshades reduce the glare from the bulb,thereby creating a romantic atmosphere. If someone points out that the light fixtures need dusting, simply look confused and exclaim "What? And spoil the mood?" (Or just throw glitter on them and call them holiday decorations.) -- Pet Hair: Explain the mound of pet hair brushed up against the doorways by claiming you are collecting it there to use for stuffing hand-sewn play animals for underprivileged children. (Also keeps out cold drafts in winter.) -- Guests: If unexpected company is coming, pile everything unsightly into one room and close the door. As you show your guests through your tidy home, rattle the door knob vigorously, fake a growl and say, "I'd love

you to see our den, but Fluffy hates to be disturbed and the shots are SO expensive." -- Dusting: If dusting is REALLY out of control, simply place a showy urn on the coffee table and insist that "This is where Grandma wanted us to scatter her ashes." -- General Cleaning: Mix one-quarter cup pine-scented household cleaner with four cups of water in a spray bottle. Mist the air lightly. Leave dampened rags in conspicuous locations. Develop an exhausted look, throw yourself on the couch and sigh, I clean and I clean and I still don't get anywhere." As a last resort, light the oven, throw a teaspoon of cinnamon in a pie pan, turn off oven and explain that you have been baking cookies for a bake sale for a favorite charity and haven't had time to clean... Works every time. -- Always keep several get-well cards on the mantle so if unexpected guests arrive, you can say you've been sick and unable to clean.

Halloween Trivia Orange and black are Halloween colours because orange is associated with the Fall harvest and black is associated with darkness and death. Jack o’ Lanterns originated in Ireland where people placed candles in hollowed-out turnips to keep away spirits and ghosts on the Samhain holiday.

The ancient Celts thought that spirits and ghosts roamed the countryside on Halloween night. They began wearing masks and costumes to avoid being recognized as human. Halloween is the 2nd most commercially successful holiday, with Christmas being the first.

Pumpkins also come in white, blue and green. Great for unique monster carvings! Halloween was brought to North America by immigrants from Europe who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghost stories, sing, dance and tell fortunes.

Bobbing for apples is thought to have originated from the Roman harvest festival that honours Pamona, the goddess of fruit trees.

There is a small gap in the mountain between one outcrop of rock (known as the Rock) and another small plateau. The bite the devil allegedly took made this gap. The legend also suggests that the devil broke his teeth taking this bite and the' Rock of Cashel' fell from his mouth to where it now stands.

Why Pumpkins are better than Men 1. Every year you get a brand new crop to choose from. 2. No matter what your mood is, pumpkins are always ready to greet you with a smile. 3. One usually makes a better pie. 4. They are always on the doorstep there waiting for you!

5. If you don't like the way he looks, you just carve up another face. 6. If he starts smelling up your place, you can just throw him out. 7. From the start you know a pumpkin has an empty, mush filled head to begin with. 8. A pumpkin is turned on (lit-up) only when you want him to be.

The Ghost of Leap Castle We Specialise in:

Once owned by the O'Carrolls, Leap Castle in Co. Offaly, is the most haunted castle in Ireland. According to tradition, Leap Castle was built on a Druidic Site. The O'Carrolls apparently were an unpleasant group, who were in the habit of murdering people and throwing them down a hole in the wall and then completely forgetting about them. One cheiftain even murdered his own brother who was a priest. The brother's crime was starting Mass too promptly. Following this incident, the top floor of the castle became known as the Bloody Chapel. Strangely enough, the lower sections of the castle that "It" was seen, "it" being an elemental force of evil with the head of a sheep and the stench of death.

Need Extra Space to Hide Christmas Presents?

Christmas is fast approaching and all the little ones will soon be putting pen to paper and asking Santa Claus for all those wonderful presents that they are hoping to find under the Christmas Tree. The best time, of course, to organise all those special gifts is soon, long before the Christmas rush, to avoid finding out that the store has sold out of that one present. Then, when all the parcels are in the house, there is no where to hide them from prying eyes. Well, the best solution to this annual problem, is a Sliding Wardrobe. Since the doors of the wardrobes slide sideways, no space

needs to be taken into account for opening the doors of the wardrobe which leaves plenty of extra space in the bedroom. As the Sliding Wardrobes are very spacious themselves, this directly resolves the problem of that abundance of Christmas presents that just never seem to fit anywhere. So remember, before the Santa Claus letters, rush out and get a Sliding Wardrobe, and never be stuck for space again. These systems are available from Komandor Wardrobes, O'Connors Shopping Centre, Nenagh and Cathedral St., Thurles. And remember! They’re not just for Christ-

European Mobility Week success for Ursuline Student. During European Mobility Week 2009, North Tipperary County Council organised a photography competition for secondary school students. Students took photographs of sustainable transport and what it meant to them. A large number of photographs were received by Áine Mc Carthy, Environmental Awareness Officer with North Tipperary County Council and the winning entry came from Rebecca Byrne, a transition year student in the Ursuline Secondary School in Thurles. For her efforts she received a new bicycle from the local authority to enable her to engage in using sustainable transport.

Throughout European Mobility week the local authority liaised with local gardaí, Sergeant Tom Delee from Nenagh and Community Garda Bart Howard in Thurles to arrange a series of talks in secondary schools promoting safety when cycling and the use of sustainable transport. “With such a high percentage of students living within three miles of their schools we were encouraging them to get on their bikes through out the week and the talks proved to be a great success” commented Áine Mc Carthy. “Improving City Climates” was the central theme for the EMW 2009, and by adopting this theme, the campaign will establish a direct link with the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December this year.

Computer- Male or female? A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la Casa.' 'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending out on accessories for it.

A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?'

The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ('el computador'), because:

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation. The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora'), because: 1.

‘Get Your Bib On’

True Colour Designs.com Anne Marie Grant Mob 087 7412420 info@truecolourdesigns.com www.truecolourdesigns.com.

Last week, stylist Sonya Lennon donned a ‘blinged’ ISPCC volunteer bib to help launch the ISPCC’s ‘Get Your Bib On’ recruitment drive. The ISPCC are appealing to people from all over Ireland to sign up as fundraising volunteers to help reach their Christmas fundraising goal of €1 million. The ISPCC is the only agency in Ireland providing a national 24 hour support service to children and young people. In spite of this, the ISPCC continues to rely on the generosity and support of the Irish people for over 90% of its funding. Speaking at the launch, Ashley Balbirnie, CEO (ISPCC) said ‘this year, more than ever, we need the support of individuals and groups from every corner of Ireland. We are asking people to help us make a positive difference to the lives of Ireland’s most vulnerable children’. Mr Balbirnie also stressed the benefits of volunteering; ‘for many people volunteering is a new year’s resolution, so we are asking people to come on board and tick it off their list before the end of the year! Volunteering is great fun, you get an opportunity to make new friends, develop new skills and make a real difference in your own community.’ Volunteers can help out in many different ways this Christmas such as taking part in public collections, holding a fundraising event in aid of the ISPCC with friends, family or colleagues or by simply making a donation to the ISPCC.

Travel Australia Many people dream of taking an Australian Holiday. After all, Australia, with a population that speaks English and an area that’s roughly the size of the U.S. Yet it features so much found nowhere else in the world, including 80 percent of its plant and animal species, the Great Barrier Reef, the vast Outback and its ancient Aboriginal culture. Maybe the most daunting aspect of an Australia is deciding where to go; the country is so large and varied that many who travel to Australia stay for a matter of weeks, not days. Firsttime visitors will likely want a “Reef, Rock and Harbour” combination. An Australia beach vacation wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Great Barrier Reef, accessed from tropical north Queensland. The area abounds with kid-friendly resorts, making it ideal for an Australia family vacation. Another top attraction is Uluru/Ayers Rock in the Northern Territory, Australia’s most recognizable icon. Rising from the desert plain, this sandstone monolith is sacred to the Aboriginal people. Sydney, another must-see, is Australia’s oldest and largest city. Its many attractions include the world-famous harbor with a bridge that visitors can climb up, fabulous beaches, the architecturally distinctive Sydney Opera House and a sophisticated vibe. The country’s second-largest city, stylish Melbourne, is also a popular destination during a visit in Australia, and is known as Australia’s cultural and sports capital. Visiting Australia must have a passport that’s valid for six months after their scheduled return date. They must also have an Electronic Travel Authority visa. To cover the vast distances within the country, many people fly or take the train. Rental cars

by Catherine Flanagan Maguire Personal Travel Counsellor are also available; driving is on the left. Australia features many climates and types of terrain. The warmest time of year is the summer, from December through February. The currency is the Australian dollar. Sydney An Australia Holiday wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Sydney, the country’s oldest, largest and most exciting city. Consistently ranked as one of the most popular cities in the world, Sydney offers beautiful scenery, gorgeous beaches, an appealing outdoor lifestyle, friendly locals, cultural attractions, fine food and wine, and much more. The most famous attraction during a Sydney vacation is the city’s harbor. Visitors can climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge for a truly breathtaking view. The harborfront Sydney Opera House, an iconic building, offers world-class performances. Other popular activities during a vacation in Sydney include dining at one of the many waterfront restaurants, sunbathing at such beaches as Bondi and Palm, visiting the Royal Botanic Gardens, observing Australia’s unique animals at Taronga Zoo or Sydney Wildlife World, and just soaking up the laid-back yet sophisticated vibe of the city. With more than 340 days of sunshine each year, Sydney has a temperate coastal climate. The warmest time of year is the summer, from December through February, when the average high temperature is about 78°F.

Anyone fancy swapping goods or services? If yes read on. Do you have a professional service that you can offer to someone in exchange for their services or goods? We are going to try something new in the Tipp Tatler that will allow you to barter for goods and services free of charge. For example maybe you’re a painter who would like to learn how to use computers. Simply send in your offer to us and we will put it out there to see if anyone will respond. Sample offers might read like this:Qualified, experienced painter willing to trade work for lessons in basic computing, ie. Microsoft Word and Excel. Ph: 0504123456 Book keeper available to prepare accounts in exchange for garden and lawn maintenance. Ph: 067-123456 Beautician will exchange gift vouchers for restaurant vouchers. Ph: 087-12345678 etc. etc. Anyhow we’re willing to give it a shot. So if you want to participate just email your offer to info@tipptatler.com or post to Tipp Tatler, Curraghgraigue, Borrisoleigh, Co. Tipperary. A few things to bear in mind: • Keep it short and to the point and try to be specific in what you are offering and what you would like in return. • Goods and services being swapped should be of equal value (add cash if needed) and valued at what they would cost if you were to pay normal rates. • We reserve the right to refuse to publish any offer if it seems inappropriate. • Please don’t send in wording that is just a blatant ad for your business. You can use your business name but without an essay of your skills, type of work you do, long list of services offered etc. etc. • It is a free service, although if we are inundated with 1000’s of offers we will have to charge a nominal fee. So get in early before that happens! • We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along. Keep it simple and straightforward and there should be no problems. Who knows, maybe it will take off, maybe it won’t. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. We’d like to think that it would and believe it is a great opportunity for everyone. There are a couple of websites that offer the same thing also if you want to check them out. www.swop-o-nomics.com and www.barterireland.com
