Hi there, my name is Julia Marie Girard, friends
call me "Jules or Julie"... take your choice :-)
I was born in Salem, Massachusetts during the "Great Depression"...
June of 1932 to be exact.

Married but divorced (for many years), I raised five son's (two have since passed on).
Now retired and living in Arkansas, although a
beautiful state, I miss New England very much.
Ohhh nooo.. I have NOT lost my accent *smiles*...I still "paaak my caaa".
So as to occupy some of my time, I decided to create web pages...
I love it and find it quite challenging.
I am under the care of a neurologist for Parkinsons Disease,
so for this reason, doing these sites is very therapeutic for me also!!
I do hope that you'll enjoy my site(s) well enough to come back soon,
I try to keep adding to it *smiles*....
"Hugs to 'ya"....Jules



I believe you'll agree that the below can be VERY frustrating !!

Person to Person
By: Charles F. Thompson

There once was a time.....
When I could call a business by phone.
Today it's a waiting game,
While I burn to the bone.

Why am I upset?
Why such a fuss?
I've simply had it with:
"Your call is important to us".

And there's that other phrase,
Just as sure to peeve.
"Your call will be answered..
In the order received".

But the worst by far is the 5 menu option,
Leading to 5 more.
Now I'm really getting mad,
Right to the core.

By the time I reach option 5
I 've forgotten 1 thru 4.
And in total disgust
Go through it once more.

Finally I'm there,
I've waded through it all.
When horror of horrors,
I'm given a new number to call!

Well, that's progress,
Or so they say.
But I'll take person to person,
Any day.


It's a sunny morning in the Big Forest and the Bear family is just waking up.
Baby Bear goes downstairs and sits in his small chair at the table. He looks into his small bowl and it's empty!
"Who's been eating my porridge?" he squeaks.
Daddy Bear arrives at the table and sits in his big chair. He looks into his big bowl and it is also empty!
"Who's been eating my porridge!?" he roars.
Mommy Bear puts her head through the serving hatch from the kitchen and screams, "Lordy, Lordy !!
How many times do we have to go through this? I haven't made the porridge yet!"

An airplane was about to crash, and there were 5 passengers left, but only 4 parachutes.
The first passenger, Bill Clinton said "I am president of the United States,
and I have a great responsibility, being the leader of nearly
300 million people, and a superpower, etc."
So, he takes the first parachute, and jumps out of the plane.
The second passenger, said "I'm Antoine Walker, one the best NBA Basketball players,
and the Boston Celtics need me, so I can't afford to die." So, he takes the second parachute, and leaves the plane.
The third passenger, Hillary Clinton, said "I am the wife of the President
of the United States, a soon to be New York Senator,
and I am the smartest woman in the world."
So, she takes the third parachute and exits the plane.
The fourth passenger, Pope John Paul the second, says to the fifth passenger,
a 10 year old boy scout, "I am old and frail and I don't have many years left,
so as a Christian gesture and good deed, I will sacrifice my life
and let you take the last parachute."
The boy scout said "It's Ok, there's a parachute left for you.
The world's smartest woman took my backpack instead of my 'chute'."

A man was in his front yard mowing grass when his attractive blonde female neighbor
came out of the house and went straight to the mailbox.
She opened it then slammed it shut, stormed back in the house.
A little later she came out of her house again, went to the mailbox and again opened it,
slammed it shut again. Angrily, back into the house she went
As the man was getting ready to edge the lawn, here she came out again,
marched to the mailbox, opened it and then slammed it closed harder than ever.
Puzzled by her actions the man asked her "is something wrong" to which she replied...
"There certainly is - My stupid computer keeps giving me a message saying..."YOU'VE GOT MAIL".

"The Blonde And The Puzzle"
[ Submitted by: Debbie Girard ]

One morning this blonde calls her friend and says, "Please come over and help me.
I have this killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to start it."
Her friend asks, "What is it a puzzle of?"
The blonde says, "From the picture on the box, it's a tiger."
The blonde's friend figures that he's pretty good at puzzles, so he heads over to her place.
She lets him in the door and shows him to where she has the puzzle spread all over the table.
He studies the pieces for a moment, then studies the box.
He then turns to her and says: "First, no matter what I do, I'm not going to be able
to show you how to assemble these to look like the picture of that tiger."
"Second, I'd advise you to relax, have a cup of coffee, and put all these Frosted Flakes back in the box."

A minister was asked to dinner by one of his church members.
He knew she was a bad housekeeper but he agreed.
When he sat down at the table, he noticed that the dishes were the dirtiest that he had ever seen in his life.
"Were these dishes ever washed?" he asked his hostess,
running his fingers over the grit and grime.
She replied, "They're as clean as soap and water could get them".
He felt a bit uncomfortable, but blessed the food anyway and started eating.
It was really delicious and he said so, despite the dirty dishes.
When dinner was over, the hostess took the dishes outside and yelled,
"Here Soap! Here Water!"

Count Your Blessings

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.

A blonde with two red ears went to her doctor.
The doctor asked her what had happened to her ears and she answered,
"I was ironing a shirt and the phone rang -
but instead of picking up the phone I accidentally picked up the iron and stuck it to my ear."
"Oh Dear!" the doctor exclaimed in disbelief.
"But, what happened to your other ear?"
"The jerk called back!"


On his first visit to the zoo, a little boy stared at the caged stork
for a long time. He waved, jumped up and down, and stared at thestork a while longer.
Finally, turning to his father, he exclaimed, "Gee,Dad, he doesn't recognize me."


A kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they drew.
She would occasionally walk around to see each child's artwork.
As she came to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.
The girl replied, "I'm drawing God."
The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like."
Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing the girl replied, "They will in a minute."

[ The poem below was sent to my by Lt. Col. (Ret.) E.Culbertson ]


Your laws ignore our deepest needs
Your words are empty air.
You've stripped away our heritage.
You've outlawed simple prayer.

Now gunshots fill our classrooms.
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere.
And ask the question "WHY"?

You regulate restrictive laws.
Through legislative creed.
Add yet you fail to understand.
That God is what we need!

Family-Friendly Site

[ Submitted by: Rose... South Carolina ]

Tom, Dick and Harry were in the pub enjoying a few quiet drinks one night,
when they decided to get in on the weekly raffle.
They bought five $1 tickets each, seeing it was for charity.
The following week, when the raffle was drawn, they each won a prize.

Tom won the first prize - a whole year's supply of gourmet spaghetti sauce.
Dick was the winner of the second prize - six month's supply of extra-long gourmet spaghetti. And Harry won the sixth prize - a toilet brush.

When they met in the pub a week later, Harry asked the others how they were enjoying their prizes.
"Great," said Tom. "I love spaghetti."
"So do I," said Dick. "And how's the toilet brush, Harry?"
"Not so good," Harry said, "I reckon I'll go back to paper..."

Two Blonde Builders

Two blonde builders were working on a house. One blonde was on a ladder nailing. She'd reach into her nail pouch, pull out a nail, look at it, and either toss it over her shoulder or proceed to nail it into the wood.
The other blonde couldn't stand it any longer and yelled up, "Why are you throwing some of the nails away?"
The first blonde explained, "When I pull it out of my nail pouch, if it's pointed toward me I throw it away. If it's pointed toward the house, then I can use it!"
The second blonde got real excited and called her all kinds of names, explaining, "Don't throw away those nails that are pointed toward you! They're for the other side of the house!!"
