10 Step Guide For The Do-It-Yourself Handyman

5. If it's electronic, get a new one...or consult a twelve year old.

6. Stay simple minded: Get a new battery; replace the bulb or fuse; see if the tank is empty; try turning the switch or just paint over it.

7. Always take credit for miracles. If you dropped the alarm clock while taking it apart and it suddenly starts working, you have healed it.

Funny Joke from the Forum
Resurrection

This is what happens when your child is exposed to too many commercials on TV.

A Baptist pastor was presenting a children's sermon.

During the sermon, he asked the children if they knew what the resurrection was.

Now, asking questions during children's sermons is crucial, but at the same time, asking children questions in front of a congregation can also be very dangerous.

Having asked the children if they knew the meaning of the resurrection, a little boy raised his hand.......

The pastor called on him and the little boy said, "I know that if you have a resurrection that lasts more than four hours you are supposed to call the doctor."

It took over ten minutes for the congregation to settle down enough for the service to continue.

''I'm on my way to a lecture,'' answered Dan.

''And who on earth, in their right mind, is going to give a lecture at this time, four o'clock in the morning '' inquired the constable sarcastically.

''My wife,'' slurred Dan grimly.
