Joke of The Day

 A man and his wife are dining at a table in a plush Restaurant
 and the husband keeps staring at a drunken lady swigging her
 gin as she sits alone at a nearby table.

 The wife asks, do you know her?"

 "Yes," sighs the husband, "She's my ex-wife.  She took to
 drinking right after we divorced 7 years ago, and I hear she
 hasn't been sober since."

 "My God!" said  the wife.  "Who would think a person could go
 on celebrating that long?"

Quote of the Day

"(I recommend) bread, meat, vegetables and beer."
-Sophocles' (philosophy of a moderate diet).
