LIGHT SIDE

A fellow finds himself in front of st. Peter at the golden gate.
St. Peter explains it is not easy to get to heaven. There are
some criteria before entry.

He asks the guy are you religious? Gave money to the church? Gave
money to the poor? Help his neighbour?

The fellow answers “no”.

Peter says, “look, work with me, I am trying to help you, think”.

The fellow says, ”Well, I came out of a store and found this old
lady surrounded by a dozen bikers. They were shoving her around,
and abusing her. I got so mad I threw my grocery bags down, fought through the crowd, and got her purse back. After helping her to her feet, I went to the biggest, baddest biker and told him how despicable, cowardly, and mean he was. Then I spat in his face.”

“Wow”, said peter, “ That’s very impressive. When did this happen”?

“oh, about five minutes ago”, replied the fellow.

RESPONSIBLE DRINKING

If you have teenagers, or in fact any adult, impress on them
the risks of driving while intoxicated. Statistics demonstrate
many fatal road accidents are caused by drunk drivers.

If you’re having a Christmas party, provide food with drinks. Offer non-alcoholic substitutes such as fruit, soft drinks.

2 drinks taken within an hour by a person 100 pounds produces a
.075 reading. One drink is equal to about 1.5 oz. of whisky or 2
bottles of beer. The rate of elimination for each hour after drinking has stopped is 015. A 200 pound person, after 1 drink produces a reading of .019, so you can see there is a big difference due to weight.

As a host it is your duty to make sure no one leaves your party impaired.
Have some one drive them home.
