13 ,J= O I The Haircut From Chuck Laughery A florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, "1 cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week." When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a "thank you" card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door. A cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, "1 cannot accept money from you, rm doing community service this week." Next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a "thank you" card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door. A Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, "1 can not accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week." The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut. And that, my friend, illustrates the fun- damental difference between the citi- zens of our country and the politicians who run it. Three Wives From Jane DeWitt The first man married a woman from Wisconsin. He told her that she was to do the dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away. The second man married a woman from Minnesota. He gave his wife orders that she was to do all the clean- ing, dishes and the cooking. The first day he didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done and there was a huge dinner on the table. The third man married a girl from Illi- nois. He ordered her to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the table for every meal. First day he didn't see anything. Second day he didn't see anything. By the third day, some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye. His arm was healed enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher. Tired Dog From Bob Metz An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard. I could tell he had a home and was well taken care of. I gave him a few pats on his head; he then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hail, curled up in the corner and fell asleep. An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out. The next day he was back, greeted me in my yard, walked inside and resumed his spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour. This continued off and on for several weeks. Curious I pinned a note to his collar: '1 would like to find out who the owner of this wonderful sweet dog is and ask if you are aware that almost every after- noon your dog comes to my house for a nap.' The next day he arrived for his nap, with this note: 'He lives in a home with 6 children, 2 under the age of 3 - he's trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?' Mt.

Geothermal heat pumps use electricity to simply move heat from the earth into buildings. A geothermal heat pump can move up to 4 units of heat for every unit of electricity needed to power the system, resulting in an equivalence of over 400% efficiency. Good News! The government revised Federal Tax Credits for homeowners who install geothermal heat pumps. The tax credit is up to 30% of the total cost of installation for home owners.
