  • Penguin Swim: The RR44 Penguin Swim Team is registered and looking for more Team members! If you are interested in joining the team, give me a call. If you have not done the swim before, it is a lot of fun, we have a hospitality suite for changing, relaxing and having a few drinks, you get to jump in the ocean on New Year Day which few people get to do, and then get in a heated pool to warm up. You only have to get your feet wet to officially do the swim. The goal is to raise money by asking friends, family and associates to donate to Atlantic General Hospital by way of the Penguin Swim. The Penguin Swim Website is up so please register for the swim at and please let me know if you run into ANY problems or have ANY questions about the process. You should receive an email confirmation after registering so please let me know that you’ve received it. Please bring a donation of a bottle of liquor, wine, or beer for the raffle Basket of Cheer we are holding at the Christmas Party. THANK YOU! Gary 443-618-9972.

Funny Poop
  • A tough old cowboy once counseled his grandson that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a little gunpowder on his oatmeal every morning.
    The grandson did this religiously and he lived to the age of 93.
    When he died, he left 14 children, 28 grandchildren, 35 great grandchildren and a fifteen foot hole in the wall of the crematorium.

  • Got poop? Let me know! I’m going to try to get this out every Wednesday so if you get it to me by Tuesday I’ll try to include it. Your input is appreciated.
