Nice ones Mike,

Strangely enough, the guy in the flood picture looks like Martin from ModelBoatMayhem !
and is that horse a police horse?

Keep 'em coming - Ken

I know this is a little early, but have to have my turn....

Okay , so this is how I imagine this conversation went:

Dunnes Stores' Employee: 'Hello 'dis is Dunnes Store's, how can I help you?'

Customer: 'Yes, I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.'

Dunnes Stores' Employee: 'Whatchu want ondacake?'

Customer: 'Best Wishes Suzanne.' And underneath that 'We will miss you'.



And I got this from an Irishman....

Okay Mike, an oldie, but a goody....

A contestant on 'Who Wants  to be a Millionaire?' had reached the final plateau.
 
If she answered  the next question correctly, she would win $1,000,000.
 
If she answered  incorrectly, she would pocket only the $25,000 milestone money.
 
And as  she suspected it would be, the million-dollar question was no pushover.
 
It  was, "Which of the following species of birds does not build its own nest but  instead lays its eggs in the nests of other birds?"
Is it:
A) the  condor
B) the buzzard
C) the cuckoo
D) the  vulture
 
The woman was on the spot.  She did not know the  answer. She had used up her 50/50 Lifeline and her Ask-the-Audience Lifeline.  All that remained was her Phone-a-Friend Lifeline.
 
She hoped she would not have to use it because... her friend was, well -- blond.
 
But she had no alternative.  She  called her friend and gave her the Question and the four Answer  choices.
 
The blond responded unhesitatingly: "That's easy.  The  answer is  C: The cuckoo."
 
The contestant had to make a decision and  make it fast.
 
She considered employing a reverse strategy and  giving Meredith any answer except the one that her friend had given her.  And considering that her friend was a blond, that would seem to be the  logical thing to do.
 
But her friend had responded with such confidence, such certitude, that the contestant could not help but be  persuaded.
 
"I need an answer," said Meredith.
 
Crossing her  fingers, the contestant said, "C: The cuckoo."
 
"Is that your final  answer?"
 
"Yes, that is my final answer."
 
And Meredith replied,  "That answer is... Absolutely correct! You are now a  millionaire!"
 
Three days later, the contestant hosted a party for her family and friends, including the blond who had helped her win the million dollars.
 
"Jeni, I just do not know how to thank you," said the contestant.
 
"How did you happen to know the right  answer?'
 
"Oh, come on," said the blond, "Everyone knows that  cuckoos don't build nests. They live in  clocks."

TAX REFUNDS for ALL BRITISH RESIDENTS

This is a PowerPoint file giving details of a great tax refund.
Single persons   from 1,500 - 3,250
Married couples from 3,000 - 6,500


This file shows how the goverment "collected" excessive taxes for the year 2006/2007
Claims must be forwarded before December 2008
The file is in PowerPoint format and I can not get it to display from the forum - sorry

But if you right click on the attachment and select open, a small window appears, now select "Save" and save it to your desktop and just double click the file from there and it should display.
Sorry about the messing around but this could be where your next model will come from - good luck with your claims (Mine has already gone in)


Cheers - Ken

Hello all, the adage of "if it sounds too good to be true... then it probably is" jumped out at me Ken. The big giveaway was the Maple leaf in the top left corner. Maybe it was one of thwWet Coasters who sent to ti you  ;)

cheers

Jim


p.s. it worked straight away from the Open Save Cancel option on download.
