Toast of The Day

 "Here's to the girl,
with eyes of brown,
Who cheers you up,
when you're feeling down,

Here's to the girl
with eyes of blue,
Who has a nice smile,
and a heart so true,

Here's to the girl,
with eyes of green,
Whose silky hair,
is the fairest I've seen,

But, no matter their hue,
Yours are best, know why?
'cause yours laugh when mine laugh
and cry, when mine cry."

- Unknown
- Variation -

"Here's to the girl with eyes of blue,
Whose hear is kind and love is true;
Here's to the girl with eyes of brown,
Who's spirit proud you cannot down;
Here's to the girl with eyes of gray,
Whose sunny smile drives care away...
Whate'er the hue of their eyes may be,"

Joke of The Day

 A man was walking along a California beach and stumbled across an old lamp. He picked it up, rubbed it and out popped a genie.
The genie said, "OK, OK. You released me from the lamp, blah blah blah."
"This is the fourth time this month and I'm getting a little sick of these wishes so you can forget about three.
You only get one wish!"
The man sat and thought about it for a while and said, "I've always wanted to go to Hawaii but I'm scared to fly and I get very seasick. Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over there to visit?"
The genie laughed and said, "That's impossible. Think of the logistics of that!
How would the supports ever reach the bottom of the Pacific?
Think of how much much steel! No, think of another wish."
The man said OK and tried to think of a really good wish.Finally, he said,
"I've been married and divorced four times. My wives always said that I don't care and that I'm insensitive. So, I wish that I could understand women....know how they feel inside and know why they're crying, know what they really want when they say nothing...know how to make them truly happy...."
The genie said, "You want that bridge two lanes or four?"
