It is absolutely true.

Bill Clinton has a long-cherished smoking pot in which he has prepared many dishes. He is particularly fond of smoked salmon, but has also used this pot to prepare smoked cheddar. Hillary, on the other hand, is particularly fond of smoked hams, and no longer enjoys the store-bought varieties.

I sure have, and they're delicious. I particularly like the chocolate chip tracking cookies (which you can get by visiting the Keebler website). But stay away from the Little Caesar website. They use tracking pizzas instead and it leaves your computer all soggy and covered in tomato sauce.

Ta ra 'wan,

I'm rather partial to the Sandies (no pecans). Where do I click to get those instead?

Comment: I have heard that Ted Williams head was cryogenically frozen in a
lab, and they are going to bring him back to life some day. Have you heard
this? They always talk about it on Coast to Coast am.

Comment: Is it true that in China they are only allowed to have one child?
I had heard it for years but never really knew if it was true or just an
Urban Legend.

As opposed to naming her....?

Oh, wait.

This also could have gone under "Death by Punctuation."

Comment: In an article from taken from the New York Times internet flaws,
the Dallas Morning News (Texas) included a "Checklist Play it Safe"
information box that said a websites address should start with "https" not
"http" if the site is secure. This article was published in the Dallas
Morning News (Texas) on 7-30-2008. Is this true? I checked some of the
sites I regularly visit and they all begin with "http." I would appreciate
any information on this.

Comment: Several weeks ago I got an email from my OWN email address except
the letters were all in lower case. I did NOT open. I deleted it, and
went to my recently deleted mail and permanently deleted it from that too.
I then sent everyone that I frequently email a note telling them about the
strange incident and then told them a code that I would send in my subject
so that they would know not to open any mail from me unless it had that
specific code in the subject. I asked them to let me know if they got any
mail from me that didn't have the code and no one got any. Now one of my
friends told me that she heard that there is a virus that uses your email
address. DO you know anything about a virus like that?

This is absolutely true. He was chosen as a second round draft pick by the Oakland Raiders in 2005. But a conflict soon erupted between him and the team management. He did not want to have to play football during Ramadan - the Muslim holy month. Therefore, he was released from the team and pursued his long loved hobby of whittling Richard Pryor figurines from walnut wood and selling them for $2 a pop at Illinois street corners.

Comment: I received an e-mail stating that web-sites that have http means
it is NOT a secure web site for using your credit/debit cards and only the
ones with https are secure. It said that http with the s at the end means
"secure". Is this true?
