Notes from the Editor Publisher - Ray Pappin

SLIPPIN’ AND A SLIDIN - HAPPY EASTER EGG!!

G’day folks. Well what’s it gonna be - WINTER right into SUMMER or WHAT!!

Well we Diddly’d around again this year on the 17th. As usual the place was packed and the Irish music was continuous. Had time to chat with the lads from Valley Heritage 98.7 FM and get a fresh shot with Terry as he made his rounds. Outside on a break we ran into Glen from Kinburn and had a chance to chat about their Swampfest in August. Read about it here in Sep if you see their ads in the paper and don’t get your “thumb out” in August.

Pretty slow and iced up here at the Muskrat. The river opened up one day and a Baldy popped down for some fishin. Its on and off with the snow squalls - this pic was taken Mar 27 as they forecast more cm’s tonight and ZR- tomorrow. Great for the NOB’s breakfast on Sunday. But not to worry as long as you have some moose to cook up eh. Save me from running into town for a Big (whatever ya call em) or a Whopper (whatever that is) eh!

I dropped into Lasso’s after Algonquin class one night and who was workin away on the books but another Levean cousin - Carrie. Drop in and say Hi. We showed up for SAB’s 50th Birthday bash but I screwed up and was a week premature. So we’ll be there tomorrow night after we get this paper away. I’ve seen variations on this cardinal but this pretty much says it all so we’ll just have to how fricki long it’ll be yet. Till next issue - keep it upright (if you get it out of the garage), between the ditches and remember BE GOOD TO YOUR MOM. Right Mom? 2

Once there was a little boy who lived in the country. The family had to use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was so hot in the summer, freezing cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy was determined that one day he would push that old outhouse straight 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. He found a large stick and started pushing. Finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away. That night his dad told him they were going to the woodshed after supper. Knowing that meant a spanking, the little boy asked why. The dad replied, “Someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today. It was you, wasn’t it son?” The boy answered yes. Then he thought a moment and said, “Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn’t get into trouble because he told the truth...” The dad replied, “Well, son, George Washington’s father wasn’t in the cherry tree.”

THOUGHTS & PONDERISMS? As I was lying around, pondering the problems of the world, I realized that at my age I don’t really give a rat’s ass anymore. If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, but is still fat. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years, while A tortoise doesn’t run and does mostly nothing, yet it lives for 150 years. And you tell me to exercise?? I don’t think so. Just grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fortune to remember the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference. Now that I’m older here’s what I’ve discovered: 1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it. 2. My wild oats are mostly enjoyed with prunes and all-bran. 3. I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart. 4. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded. 5. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded. 6. If all is not lost, then where the heck is it ? 7. It was a whole lot easier to get older, than to get wiser. 8. Some days, you’re the top dog, some days you’re the hydrant; the early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. 9. I wish the buck really did stop here, I sure could use a few of them. 10. Kids in the back seat cause accidents. 11. Accidents in the back seat cause kids. 12. It’s hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere. 13. The world only beats a path to your door when you’re in the bathroom. 14. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he’d have put them on my knees. 15. When I’m finally holding all the right cards, everyone wants to play chess. 16. It’s not hard to meet expenses.... they’re everywhere. 17. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth. 18. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter, I go somewhere to get something and then wonder what I’m “here after”. 19. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded. 20. HAVE I SENT THIS MESSAGE TO YOU BEFORE.... ?

John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Saskatchewan . After spending a great evening chatting the night away, the next morning John’s grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking, ‘Are these plates clean?’ His grandfather replied, ‘They’re as clean as cold water can get em. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!’ For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, John was concerned about the plates, as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, ‘Are you sure these plates are clean?’ Without looking up the old man said, ‘I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don’t you fret, I don’t want to hear another word about it!’

The Four Cats Four men were bragging about how smart their cats were. The first man was an Engineer, The second man was an Accountant, The third man was a Chemist, and The fourth man was a Government Employee. To show off, the Engineer called his cat, “T-square, do your stuff.” T-square pranced over to the desk, took out some paper and pen and promptly drew a circle, a square, and a triangle. Everyone agreed that was pretty smart. But the Accountant said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, “Spreadsheet, do your stuff.” Spreadsheet went out to the kitchen and returned with a dozen cookies. He divided them into 4 equal piles of 3 cookies. Everyone agreed that was good. But the Chemist said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, “Measure, do your stuff.” Measure got up, walked to the fridge, took out a quart of milk, got a 10 ounce glass from the cupboard and poured Exactly 8 ounces without spilling a drop into the glass. Everyone agreed that was pretty good. Then the three men turned to the Government Employee and said, “What can your cat do?” The Government Employee called his cat and said, “CoffeeBreak, do your stuff.” CoffeeBreak jumped to his feet....... Ate the cookies........ Drank the milk..... Sh*t on the paper....... Screwed the other three cats........ Claimed he injured his back while doing so. Filed a grievance report for unsafe working conditions....... Put in for Workers Compensation..................and Went home for the rest of the day on sick leave............ AND THAT, MY FRIEND IS WHY EVERYONE WANTS TO WORK FOR THE GOVERNMENT!

Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather’s dog started to growl, and wouldn’t let him pass. John yelled and said, ‘Grandfather, your dog won’t let me get to my car’. Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted! ‘Coldwater, go lay down now, yah hear me!’ 15

BRIAN’$ CORNER

Mortgage Life Insurance: Should be a No-Brainer

We’ve all heard that Commercial on the radio where the fellow goes to one Optometrist for his right eye, but has a second Optometrist for his left eye. Then the come out with this dandy question: “You wouldn’t go to two different eye Doctors for your eyes, so why would you get your Mortgage Insured somewhere else?” That’s easy. Because nine times out of ten somewhere else is a better deal! You take for example the person that insures your house and your car. They, as will your Investment advisor put you into a Term Insurance policy that will have a 5 or 10 year Term. Before you are issued the policy you will likely be required to complete a

22

health questionnaire and do at least a urine test and blood sample. This is called “up-front underwriting”. Once the policy is issued you will have the same monthly premiums for the Term chosen. However at renewal date your premiums will increase a great amount as you will then be 5 or 10 years older. The difference is “Level Term” insurance and “Creditor Group Insurance”. Your Bank or Mortgage Agent will offer Mortgage Life Insurance at the time you apply for/ get approved for your new Mortgage. This is usually much less expensive as it is a Group Plan spread over many thousands of applicants. It’s Reducing Term Insurance (meaning the coverage reduces as the mortgage principle is paid down). In some cases, the Banks, Trust companies or Credit Unions will only underwrite the Insurance at the time of the claim. At this point, the claim could be disallowed if there was a “pre-existing condition”. Most Mortgage Specialist/Agents will offer up front underwritten plans that will have a level premium through the

entire amortization period of your mortgage and can be portable to different Lenders should you decide to switch for better rates/ options, etc. As in all financial dealings, make sure you read and understand what you are signing. If you don’t understand, ask until you receive satisfactory explanations. Don’t use your regular Life Insurance to cover your mortgage when you die. That Insurance should be there to replace the Loss of Income, cover final expenses, pay consumer debt and provide for postsecondary education for your children. Your Group Life Insurance at work is not a consideration either. When you leave that job or are terminated that coverage ends. Questions? Comments? Contact me at: brian.coventry@ premieremortgage.ca

It’s a two day Old-Time Music Show at the peak of Winter’s “cabin fever”. A little bit of summer with snow! Darwin Thom, Director of Woodsmoke Bluegrass Jamboree, says that it encompasses all aspects of an old-time show such as live, unrehearsed and impromptu performances where musicians and singers alike depend on years of experience to exhibit a show that will keep an audience entrained and wanting more.

The festivities commenced with the Woodsmoke house band, with Darwin Thom and special guests Peter Dawson and Jim Colette. The lineup this year boasted some top-notch Bluegrass musicians and award winners - including: Traditionally Wound, Hard Ryde, The Dusty Drifters, Handsome Molly, This Tyme Round, Northwind, Darwin Thom & Gilles Leclerc and County Road 44.

You can be sure to hear many of your favourite songs and instrumentals from the best. It all starts on Friday night at 7pm, with a Late Night Show (each night) starting in the JetSet Lounge. The second show runs from 1-5 pm on Saturday with a dinner break from 5-7 pm. The third show runs 7 - 10 pm with more open-jamming later in the JetSet Pub but as a matter of fact there is jamming all over!

NAV CENTRE was excited to welcome back the third annual Woodsmoke Bluegrass Jamboree - an event that has been a real success and which continues to grow - Kim Coe-Turner, GM. Performed on our large theatre stage, the Jamboree is a great example of the CENTRE’s ability to accommodate sizeable music concerts. Encompassing the whole event from the main Jamboree to accommodations, dining at the Propeller Restaurant and Jamming at the JetSet Pub – under just one roof.” 24

Not unlike any/many music events Woodsmoke also maintained the tradition of making sure the new upcoming talent got a little exposure. A pink-laced debutant of the fiddle and a pair of guitars getting a chance to strut their stuff and boy did they get er done. We had a blast. Thanks Darwin for advertising with the Valley Vendor and mark us down for tickets for next year. We’ll be back

In closing I must say that this was an extra-special treat for an old Air Traffic Controller after 26 years re-visiting NAV Centre whereat I trained in 81 and 86. Back then it was TCTI fondly referred to as “the institute”. Memories were all around me all weekend on top of enjoying some of the best Bluegrass at a top notch facility in the midst of winter. So folks until next year watch your upcoming Valley Vendors for more Bluegrass events and other Valley concerts - see the listing in this issue and full page advertising as it happens. And then, after a summer’s worth of camping treat yourself to the luxury of the 4th Annual Woodsmoke Jamboree at the NAV Centre in Cornwall.

Why do a Criminal Pardon (Record Suspension)? A Canadian pardon is a method of removing a past criminal offense from public record. A pardon decision is made by the Canadian Parole Board after they review the nature of the prior criminal offenses and documentary evidence relating to “rehabilitation” and other factors that justify a pardon. Advantages to receiving a Record Suspension: •Proud to have no further record of past foolishness •Improve your life, travel and work when applying for a job and records check •People deserve the right for personal growth and to better themselves •Stress free travel across international borders confidently and undergo any work related security checks that may be required in the future- Relief from deportation •Freedom to achieve emotional and psychological closure removing any self-induced humiliation associated with the past events- Forgiveness of past mistakes-No secret shame Everyone makes mistakes. Sometimes those mistakes lead to a criminal record. Over 4 million Canadians have a criminal record; rest assured you are not alone.

Everyone has a legal story. You can apply for you own record suspension but the paperwork and procedure can be daunting. The process can take 18 to 24 months. This means you can explore a whole new world of job opportunities or enjoy the freedom to travel to any of your favourite destinations. Insurance companies, financial institutions, apartment rentals, being bonded, contractors hiring sub contracts, educational opportunities, and volunteer organizations are all requesting criminal records checks more frequently now. To be eligible to receive a pardon in Ontario means an application in Canada to meet the requirements as listed; it must be 3, 5 or 10 years since you completed the sentence for your offense, depending on the type of offense convicted and the seriousness of the crime committed. This time frame includes the completion of all probation and the payment of all fines. If you have a nonconviction record holding you back from enjoying life it would be useful to get a Record Purge. Even if you

The Valley’s First Choice for Bargain Hunting

have never been convicted of a crime, a registered background check can still show a non-conviction record on your criminal records check. This could stop you from finding work, adopt a child or even travel freely across the border. To be considered personally eligible for a Record Purge: •You must not be convicted of a summary or indictable offense. •You must not have a criminal case pending before the courts. •In the case of a discharge, your record must originate before July 24, 1992. •You must not have a criminal case pending before the courts. This includes courts in other jurisdictions. •Criminal activity would pose a substantial hurdle to a record removal process since local police have a say in the matter.

THE EQUALIZER

Manipulating the frequency spectrum is one of the most important skills in recording and mixing. I will explain the different types of EQ you can use in your mix and share some tips on how to get the best from them. Equalization, more commonly abbreviated to ‘EQ’, is one of the key elements of the recording, mix or mastering engineer’s toolkit, and you’ll hear engineers talking at great length about the sound characteristics of specific makes and models of EQ — such is the importance of EQ to a modern recording OR LIVE SOUND. In this article I’ll offer you tips and tricks about which frequency ranges you might find most useful for common instruments. Graphic equalizers are based around a large number of fixed-frequency filters,

either with fixed bandwidth or proportional Q responses, usually spaced by a half, a third, or a whole octave, depending on the number of bands. Each band is controlled using a vertical slider, which governs the cut or boost, with ‘flat’ being in the centre position — so clearly the name ‘graphic equalizer’ comes about because the faders show the general shape of the EQ curve. All these uses are valid, but whatever you do, don’t fall into the trap of thinking that radical amounts of EQ will help you fix an imperfect sound at the mixing stage — because very often it won’t!   0 Kick Drum: Bottom or depth is usually found in the 60-80Hz region; slap at 2.5kHz. Snare Drum: Weight, fatness or body at about

Cymbals: ‘Clunk’ from 100300Hz; ringing overtones at 1-6kHz; sizzle at 8-12kHz. Rack Toms: Fullness around 240Hz; attack at 5kHz. Floor Toms: Fullness around 80-120Hz; attack at 5kHz. Bass Guitar: Bottom at 60-80Hz; attack or ‘pluck’ at 700Hz to 1kHz; ‘pop’ at 2.5kHz. Electric Guitar: Mains hum at 50Hz (UK) or 60Hz (US); fullness at 240Hz; bite at 2.5kHz Acoustic Guitar: Bottom or weight at 80-100Hz; body around 240Hz; clarity from 2-2.5kHz. Hammond/Electric Organ: Bottom from 80-120Hz; presence at 2.5kHz. Acoustic Piano: Bottom from 80-120Hz; presence

Brass: Warmth at 200400Hz; ‘honk’ at 1-3.5kHz; ‘rasp’ at 6-8kHz; shrillness at 8-12kHz. Solo Trumpet & Sax: Warmth at 200-400Hz; nasal tones at 1-3kHz.

Finally, then, a knowledge of EQ is important to today’s music production process, and it can be used either to correct problems or in a more creative manner, to shape sounds in a less natural — but musically satisfying — way.

35¢ wings after 8pm on the bar side COUNTRY HAVEN RETIREMENT HOME Greetings and salutations from Country Haven Retirement Home, located in the friendly village of Beachburg! Although our wish for an early spring was not granted, we still managed to pass an enjoyable month! In the month of March, we enjoyed several special events, including a visit from the spunky ladies who make up the Red Hot Mamas, at the beginning of the month. These gals are so full of joie de vivre, and they add sunshine to our day just by dropping by and sharing their music with us! We also had a terrific time at our annual St. Patrick’s Day Party. Many of our staff and residents got dressed up for the occasion, wearing their best Irish duds, which always makes the day more fun! We were pleased to have the Beachburg Connection, accompanied by our in-house musician, Tom Chaput as the entertainment for the party, and naturally, they sang all of our favourite Irish ditties! Their music even inspired several of us to get up and dance a time or two! We also treated ourselves to munchies, as well as some chocolate gold coins which a leprechaun 28

must have dropped off, and a thirst-quenching green punch to wash it all down. It was a great party, enjoyed by all who came out! April promises to be a busy month for us here at Country Haven. We have a special Easter Service scheduled for April 17th, which is always an important service for us here at our Home. April also happens to be Volunteer Appreciation Month, and as such, we plan to take the opportunity to thank all of the many amazing volunteers we are fortunate enough to have as a part of our Country Haven Family. Plans are underway for our Volunteer Appreciation Dinner, where we wine and dine our volunteers, and offer them our sincere thanks for the many things they do for us! Our Home could not function without the support of the many volunteers, who so generously give of their time and talent, and once a year seems hardly enough to thank them for all they do! From our Home to yours, we hope that you have a wonderful month, and hopefully, by the time the next Valley Vendor is distributed, we really will have some spring like weather! Until next time...happy trails!

Obituary... Absolutely Dead Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: -Knowing when to come in out of the rain; - Why the early bird gets the worm; - Life isn’t always fair; - And maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death, -by his parents, Truth and Trust, -by his wife, Discretion, -by his daughter, Responsibility, -and by his son, Reason. He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers; - I Know My Rights - I Want It Now - Someone Else Is To Blame - I’m A Victim - Pay me for Doing Nothing Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing. 30

NOB’S CORNER

Holy smokes eh! Is Spring ever going to come? I don’t mind winter but I never thought I would be still on my snowmobile in April . The wait to get back on my bike starting to become some what of a pain. Talking to fellow Northern Old Bastard Vintage Motorbike Club (NOBs) member Dieter Stehle up in Eganville, who tells me if he don’t soon get on bike he’s going pack up the bike and head south to go on tour. Hope your going take me with ya buddy. Dieter, who was born and raised in Ravensberg Germany, didn’t start riding till he retired 7 years ago. This tool-maker turned truck driver, says “ I was 60 full of energy and I need a hobby. I always liked bikes as a kid and I thought I would enjoy the fresh air “. Buying a 1982 400cc Yamaha street bike Dieter dot his licence and been riding every chance he gets. Wanting to power up Dieter then purchased a 1995 Suzuki intruder 800cc from a fellow NOB member just last spring. “The difference in power in my old bike and the Intruder is like day and night. Gotta watch myself sometimes”. Dieter said with a grin. I was up at a biker rally with Dieter a while back and I asked him why he joined up with the NOBs this is what he had to say. “I enjoy being a part of a club where all the monies raised within that club goes to help out people in the Ottawa Valley and the other riders I’ve met are really cool people to ride with and be around.” Anytime now spring will be by with the NOBs swap meet at Felix Gains’s in Carp on May 24 and the NOBS bike show in Ladysmith Qc in June hope I don’t have to ride my ski-doo to both events. Before I get back to working on my bike, got to send out a big GET WELL SOON !!!! to charter member David Hodgins, riding out of Shawville QC, who is going be back on his Harley after recovering from a tour in the hospital. All NOB members are cheering for you brother. Rigid Riding NOB #498

Car enthusiasts remember the days of Autorama at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa for the many years it ran. It was exciting to meet your fellow car lovers and their beautiful rides from decades past. Well this May 3-4, 2014 you can come enjoy it all over again as Ottawa’s EYCentre plays host to nearly 100 beautiful cars at this indoor car show. “The venue couldn’t be better,” said show owner Dave Brown. “It’s terrific to have the car community behind the show with much to enjoy for families and kids.” Following last year’s show Brown has many events and special things to enjoy. Some of the highlights include: Monster Trucks on site; large 20x20 displays of feature vehicles not regularly seen in the area; silent auctions for Ottawa Senator’s Roger’s House; dragsters the kids can sit in; model and remote control cars; mini battery-powered cars the kids can actually drive; live music; judges; special car scene videos; and award ceremony and much more. The entrance fee is only $12 and children six and under get in free. DISPLAYING YOUR CAR The number of vehicle entrants is quickly filling up as car owners look forward to displaying their ride to the enjoyment of the thousands who come to the show. “We’re finding that both individuals and car clubs are booking their spots to be in the show,” said Brown. “We’re also excited for wide variety of exhibitors.” If you’re a car owner it only cost $25 to enter your vehicle

to be judged in the show. All the money from the vehicle entry fees goes directly to prizes and awards. Car owners can rent stanchions to surround their car, but many choose to create a simple border, yet others still are fine with no soft baricade to allow visitors a chance to see the cars up close. There are 13 classes of categories in which to choose from to enter your car. Each of the Class Winners will win $100 and the two runner-ups will each win $25. Special awards go to Best Car In Show, Best Truck in Show and Best Club Participation. Prizes in these categories are $250 each. EXHIBITORS Anybody looking to get in front of men or car enthusiasts in general can purchase an Exhibitor Booth for $875 per 10x10 spot. It’s a real chance to sell your services, products or wares.

“Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’” Robin Williams Spring is a favourite time of year for us at Glenergy. As the daylight hours grow longer, so extends our opportunity to capture energy from the sun. That makes it the perfect time to start planning, budgeting, and installing off-grid power at the camp or cottage. Lights and refrigeration, fans and cell phone charging - it’s all possible with solar. Anywhere. You might be thinking: “So, I can have some lights, charge my phone, and keep my beer cold in the fridge with solar power - but it’ll be expensive, right?”. Wrong! Let’s say you’d like to run some lights, a TV, radio, a refrigerator, and a couple of other small appliances.

Those loads might add up to 4000 watt hours every week. If you’d like to run your system all year long, you might be looking at about $6000. Many of our customers walk away with summer-only cottage systems under $3000. Whatever your needs and whatever your budget, we

can design a system for you. Given the rising cost of gas — especially on a summer long-weekend — it’s not hard to see why so many people are opting to install solar systems rather than rely on noisy, fuelconsuming generators. A modest solar system will often pay for itself in less than a year - so how’s that for a no-brainer?! Let’s talk about lifespan. The batteries for your solar system may need to be replaced in 5 to 7 years. LED lights will have a lifespan of about 50 000 hours and solar panels have warranties of up to 25 years. At Glenergy, our customers want to burn less fuel, hear less noise, smell less fumes, and spend less money. They’re getting that with our solar systems. Know what they’re also getting? More energy independence, more peace and quiet, and more cash in their pockets. Glenergy offers free system design consultation. Drop in and see us at 2669 Petawawa Blvd. or give us a call at 613 687 2310 and talk to an expert today. Energy freedom can start now. Hunting

JUST FOR FUN A couple, both age 78, from Pembroke went to a sex therapist’s office. The doctor asked, “What can I do for you?” The man said, “Will you watch us have sex?” The doctor looked puzzled, but agreed. When the couple finished, the doctor said, “There’s nothing wrong with the way you have sex,” and charged them $50. This happened several weeks in a row. The couple would make an appointment, have sex with no problems, pay the doctor, then leave. Finally, the doctor asked, “Just exactly what are you trying to find out?” “We’re not trying to find out anything,” the husband replied. “She’s married and we can’t go to her house. I’m married and we can’t go to my house. The Travelodge charges $90. The Best Western charges $108. We do it here for $50... and I get $43 back from OHIP.

Good Bye Grandpa! A father put his 3 year old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened to her prayers which ended by saying, “God bless Mommy, God bless Daddy, God bless Grandma and good-bye Grandpa.” The father asked, ‘Why did you say good-bye Grandpa?’... The little girl said, “I don’t know daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do.” The next day grandpa died. The father thought it was a strange coincidence. A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers which went like this, “God bless Mommy, God Bless Daddy and good-bye Grandma.” The next day the grandmother died. “Holy crap” thought the father, “this kid is in contact with the other side.” Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed, the dad heard her say, “God bless Mommy and good-bye Daddy.” He practically went into shock. He couldn’t sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office. He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch and watched the clock. He figured if he could get by until midnight he would be okay. He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound. Finally midnight arrived; he breathed a sigh of relief and went home. When he got home his wife said, “I’ve never seen you work so late. What’s the matter?” He said, “I don’t want to talk about it, I’ve just spent the worst day of my life.” She said, “You think you had a bad day, you’ll never believe what happened to me. This morning my golf pro dropped dead in the middle of my lesson!” The Valley’s First Choice for Bargain Hunting

It’s a slow day in the small town of Pumphandle and the streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody is living on credit. A tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the hotel, and lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs to pick one for the night. As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher. (Stay with this..... and pay attention) The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt to the pig farmer. The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his supplier, the Co-op. The guy at the Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer her “services” on credit. The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel Owner. The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the traveler will not suspect anything At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves. No one produced anything. No one earned anything. However, the whole town now thinks that they are out of debt and there is a false atmosphere of optimism and glee. And that, my friends, is how a “government stimulus package” works!

Dear Ray: Thank you so much for sending the two months “Feb & March” of the Valley Vendor. I sat there enjoying every “Just for Fun” section I could find, that is a great way to place them because you get a chance to read the “ads” while searching. I loved the “I ate the groundhog” & “you’re welcome”, especially when today here it is snowing so hard it’s actually white out there. Also, the one “nursing home, my – ass!!” I think I’ll make a copy and put them up in the mailing room for some of the many

seniors here in the building to enjoy a good laugh. Thanks again, best laugh I’ve had in months. Lillian

MY COST TO MAIL A PAPER LAST YEAR WAS $1.10 NOW ITS $1.34 - ring any bells? The folks down at the post office are 100% and appreciate getting the paper when I drop in and are always asking me to let them deliver the paper so I bring em in a bundle of 50 papers to weigh and ask what it costs to mail a bundle.
