BLOGSHARES AND SENDING TELEGRAMS

Okay, thanks to my friend M.G. Tarquini, I am officially hooked on the stockmarket...the virtual stockmarket on Blogshares.com. It's a fantasy blog stock market.

On the right hand side of the screen there's a little space to put in your blog URL to see if your listed.

I was....what a hoot...people are trading virtual shares of my blog. You can claim your blog. They retain 1000 shares of stock for the real owner of the blog, and you get it when you sign up. You also get $500 of virtual money to start with. I've only been playing for 24 hours and I have over $5,000 all ready....too funny!

In the top upper left, there's a link for HELP. That will get you started....have fun!

And now for the Joke Of The Day!!!!


* A daughter sends a telegram to her father on her clearing B.Ed exams, which the father receives as "Father, your daughter has been successful in BED."

* A husband, while he is on a business trip to a hill station sends a telegram to his wife "I wish you were here." The message received by wife, "I wish you were her."

* A wife with near maturing pregnancy goes to railway station to return home to her husband. At the reservation counter, when her turn came, it was the last ticket. Taking pity on a very old lady next to her in the queue, she offered her berth to the old lady and sent a telegram to her husband which read as "Shall be coming tomorrow, heavy rush on the train, gave birth to an old lady."

* And the most famous of them all... A man wants to celebrate his wife's Birthday by throwing a party. So he goes to order a birthday cake. The salesman asks him what message he wants to put on the cake. Well he thinks for a while and says let's put, "You are not getting older, you are getting better".

The salesman asks "How do you want me to put it?"

The man says, well put ,"You are not getting older", at the top and, "You are getting better" at the bottom.

The real fun didn't start until the cake was opened as the entire party watched. The message decorated on the cake read, "You are not getting older at the top. You are getting better at the bottom."

    I'm a premium member, Bonnie? How'd I do that? Seriously, I've no idea.

    Come sit in my corner, Wren, because I am clueless about this game. I mean, I understand the concept, but I can't figure out how to do more than log in.
