Toast of The Day

"May there always be work for your hands to do,
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane,
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you,
And may your heart be filled with gladness to cheer you."
- Traditional

Joke of The Day

 A guy stuck his head into a barbershop and asked,
"How long before you can cut my hair?"
The barber looked around the shop full of customers and said, "A couple of hours."
The guy left.
A few days later, the same guy stuck his head in the door and asked,
"How long before you can cut my hair?"
The barber looked around at the shop and said, "I'm pretty busy about 3 hours."
The guy left.
A week later, the same guy stuck his head in the shop and asked..."How long before you can cut my hair?"
The barber looked around the shop and said, "About an hour and a half today."
The guy left. The barber turned to the apprentice who was sweeping up hair and said "Do me a favour. Follow that bloke who just put his head around the door and see where he goes. He keeps asking how long he has to wait for a haircut, but then he doesn't ever come back."
A little while later, the apprentice returned to the shop, laughing hysterically.
The barber asked, "So, where does that guy go?"
The apprentice looked up, wiped the tears from his eyes and said, "Your house!".
