The Founder Of "The Web" Is Knighted
Mood:  bright
Tim Berners-Lee is hardly a household name, but he deserves our recognition. He's the person who invented "The World Wide Web." Read what he said about the Internet in 1989:

"Suppose all the information stored on computers everywhere were linked, I thought," Berners-Lee wrote in his 1999 memoir, Weaving the Web. "Suppose I could program my computer to create a space in which every computer at CERN, and on the planet, would be available to me and to anyone else. There would be a single, global information space."

Mr. Berners-Lee never profited from his cyberspace invention. He wanted to create a global village for the good of mankind.

Starting The New Year On The Right Foot
I wish you a day of ordinary miracles-
A fresh pot of coffee you didn't have to make yourself. An unexpected phone call from an old friend. Green stoplights on your way to work or shop. I wish you a day of little things to rejoice in...The fastest line at the grocery store. A good sing along song on the radio. Your keys right where you look. I wish you a day of Peace, Happiness and Joy.

Another Happy New Year's Message

An Unforgettable Cribbage Game
Mood:  happy
On the day before his birthday, my brother-in-law and partner received a 28 hand to win our second and final game against our wives. This is the first time that I've seen this hand. My brother-in-law(Joe Noseworthy)who is turning 60 tomorrow has only seen these hands three times in a lifetime. One can go three or four lifetimes without experiencing a perfect 29 hand, so I'm not waiting around until then to report a great cribbage hand.

Only God can deliver perfection, but may I wish you seven or eight 28 hands in very big games where you come from behind and win.

Work, Work, Work
Mood:  don't ask
Believe it or not, there's still some mail hanging around from the Christmas rush. I'm continuing to work all the overtime I can. Hopefully, I'll end up a few bucks ahead and not like this guy below.

Maybe I need some rabbit poo-tea to give me a lift.

The Worse Interview Of 2003.
Mood:  down
Who? Don Cherry, a TV hockey commentator in Canada

Q: What is the biggest misconception about you?
A: A lot of people think that I don't have any brains. What I have is street smarts, like a construction worker. You never hear about a construction worker committing suicide. Murder, yeah, but not suicide.
Who Or What Is Don Cherry?

Happy New Year
Mood:  hug me
We had a great time at a Newfoundland Pub called "Eastern Passage" in Brampton. The number of Newfies in Brampton, Ontario is almost as many as those in Newfoundland. We got to see the New Year come in twice, once in St. John's NFLD and the other in Brampton(Please note that Newfoundland is the first North American area to welcome the New Year. It's a half hour ahead of Altantic Time). Derek Pilgrim ,despite his heavy cold, played his Newfoundland and Country Music very well. My wife also won a Newfoundland clock which is shaped like the island. All the best for 2004, may the wind at your back be your own.

Joke Of The Week
A patient was seeing his doctor about a sore throat.
"Gargle 12 times a day with Newfie Screech", the doctor instructed. "Will that make my sore throat better?" replied the patient. "No, but it'll make you forget your problem."

"What's Newfie Screech???"
