<soft laughter so as not to wake up CLOTN> Thanks for the story, sounds like many times at my parents. Heck, sounds like me trying to get sleep now.

It was pretty funny. As much as I wanted that nap, I couldn't help but see the humor in it.

Shrek has a junk box, odd flotsam and jetsam of junk that he can;t get rid of, but have no sensible use. He always needs to dig through it when I'm trying to nap...

When we are at my Dad's house, he gets up really early and throws dishes in the kitchen! When we finally just go ahead and get up he says, "I didn't think you would be up yet." :)

ICE

How many of you are aware of ICE? No, I don't mean the kind you put in drinks or skate on. I mean the ICE number that is listed in your cell phone. For those of you who don't know what it stands for; In Case Of Emergency. Anytime I have gotten a new phone, it is the very first number I enter. Should something happen when I am away from home and I am unconscious, the first thing a First Responder will look for on your phone is the ICE. You should always list it as follow ICE Mary Daughter and then the number Area Code - 555-1234.

Thank you for the reminder. I know about it, but I couldn't remember the acronym. I'll put it on my phone right away.

I just realized there is a little problem. My phone requires a code to use it. I put the code so I won't bum dial.

Make the code simple. Such as 1 2 3

i will have to ask my son if there is a code they use first when they find the phone locked. Will get back to you on that. I just sent him an email.
