The Joke From Jersey Joe

Two priests decided to go to Hawaii on their holidays. They were determined to make this a real vacation by not wearing anything that would identify them as clergy. As soon as the plane landed they headed for a store and bought some really outrageous shorts, shirts, sandals, sunglasses.  The next morning they went to the beach dressed in their ‘tourist’ garb. They were sitting on beach chairs, enjoying a drink, the sunshine and the scenery when a ‘drop dead gorgeous’ topless blonde came walking straight towards them ……They couldn’t help but stare. As the blonde passed them she smiled and said ‘Good Morning, Father ~ Good Morning, Father,’ nodding and addressing each of them individually, then she passed on by. They were both stunned. How in the world did she know they were priests?

So the next day, they went back to the store and bought even more outrageous outfits. Once again, in their new attire, they settled down in their chairs to enjoy the sunshine. After a little while, the same gorgeous topless blonde came walking toward them. Again she nodded at each of them and said ‘Good morning, Father ~ Good morning, Father,’ and started to walk away. One of the priests couldn’t stand it any longer and said, ‘Just a minute, young lady.’ ‘Yes, Father?’ ‘We are priests and proud of it, but I have to know, how in the world did you know we are priests, dressed as we are?’

She replied, ‘Father, it’s me, Sister Kathleen.’

John and Jarrett talked about how people have bought into the communist left. It’s invaded Hollywood, the classroom, and the one-sided media. They also talked about V-E day, which took place over the weekend. Jarrett noticed that there was a lot of revisionism on social media about how the USSR “won the war” and he addressed that.

 

A Lot To Do About Nothing – The CDC

The CDC

John’s comments here. Mobile users begin at 51:58

Neat the way the CDC admits it was wrong about the Covid 6-foot distancing rule on a Friday night and none of the networks cover that story on the Saturday morning news. Fridays are notorious for being the day administrations choose to release stories they want to die a quick death.

Quotes from the linked story:

The CDC acknowledged Friday that the airborne spread of COVID-19 among people more than 6 feet apart “has been repeatedly documented.”

“These transmission events have involved the presence of an infectious person exhaling virus indoors for an extended time (more than 15 minutes and in some cases hours) leading to virus concentrations in the air space sufficient to transmit infections to people more than 6 feet away, and in some cases to people who have passed through that space soon after the infectious person left.”

7 SIMPLE BUDGET HACKS 

Bill Westrom is a consumer finance expert with 25 years of experience in street-level consumer banking and borrowing. He is the co-author of the book Master Your Debt with Jordan Goodman

Got debt?  Don’t feel bad. You’re not alone. 

According to the credit reporting bureau Experian:

  • 75% of adults carry an average balance of $5,315 on one or more credit cards.
  • 25% of adults have a personal loan with an average balance of $16,458.
  • 66% of adults have at least one auto loan with an average balance of $19,703
  • 44.7 million borrowers carry student loan debt averaging $38,792.
  • 44% of adults have a mortgage with an average balance of $208,185. 

For 15 years Bill Westrom has been sharing money-management tips and strategies for erasing debt and building equity. Today he’s here to review some simple ways to trim hundreds of dollars (or more) of unnecessary outlays from your monthly household budget.      

Westrom’s 7 Simple Budget Hacks:

  1. Switch to a cheaper gym membership:  Personal finance experts often point to gym membership as the first expense that should be cut.  If you don’t need a pool, a basketball court, or a racquetball court, you can find a smaller gym with fewer facilities for as little as $10 monthly.  
  1. Rent or Borrow a Dress or Suit:  Next time you have an event coming up, borrow a nice outfit from a close friend or rent one for the day. You can rent the latest looks from websites like Le Tote, Rent the Runway, or Style Lend.
  1. Cut the Cord:  77.6 million of us still pay for cable TV, but do we really need a Platinum package with 1,200 channels? A $30 Roku adapter and a monthly $9 Netflix subscription will provide more than enough news, movies, and entertainment.
  1. Pack a Lunch at Least Every other Day:  Limiting lunches out to every other workday can be a simple way to save $5 to $15 per meal and easily $100 over the course of a month.
  1. Order Your Glasses Online: No law says you have to buy your glasses at your optometrist’s office. After an eye exam, take your prescription and shop online for a deeply
  2. Use Cash-back Apps like Rakuten and Ibotta:  Thousands of stores, from Macy’s to Walmart, pay companies like Rakuten and Ibotta a commission for sending customers their way.  These shopping portals share the commission they receive with you as cashback through PayPal or direct deposits to your bank account.  Savvy shoppers can earn hundreds monthly.
  3. Use a Line of Credit for Banking:  This clever cash flow strategy has you deposit your paychecks and other income into a line of credit (LOC) for the purpose of suppressing the LOC balance until you pay your bills from the LOC on a specified day.  By keeping the LOC’s average daily balance suppressed in this manner, the interest payment charged by the bank at the end of the month is reduced, resulting in a net gain for you and not your banker.
