Good Morning y'all, here I am with this week's Traffic Report.
This is the Weekly Traffic Report that is sent to all of the
Humor List subscribers once a month.

May I wish all of you who observe the Gregorian Calendar a very
Happy New Year.  And at the risk of being a wet blanket, remind
those who don't know, 1999 is NOT the end of this century, in
spite of what you may have read or heard. The year 2000 will be
the end of this century, and 2001 will begin the next -- due to
the fact that there was no year "zero".

If you received a "Millennium Countdown Clock" as a gift during
the Holidays, I hope you'll be able to exchange it for something
useful.

Remember, if you missed or deleted  a Digest, they're
available (normally the same day the Digests are sent out) at:
        www2.crosswinds.net/baltimore/~jimjr   (text files)
        www.geocities.com/BourbonStreet/6293   (zip files)

To verify current addresses, our server randomly selects
subscribers and sends an e-mail to verify the addresses.
Subscribers need take no action when such a message is received.

Errors returned from your Server to our ListServer may cause your
name to be dropped from the list.  If you feel, at any time, that
you have been dropped from the list, or have stopped receiving mail
from the ListServer, simply resubscribe.  You will not receive
duplicate mailings to the same address; if you're already
subscribed, the ListServer will verify that.

Message Board:

A Humor List rule has always been no discussion on the mailings.
This is as it should be.  People who subscribe to a joke list
expect jokes, not banter.  But as an alternate, a Message Board
is now available to ALL members (and guests) who wish to comment
on previously posted jokes or those who enjoy a forum format:
           www.InsideTheWeb.com/mbs.cgi/mb212137

It is NOT intended as a site to leave messages or questions for
the ListOwners, nor is it an alternate site to post jokes, but a
place for messages intended for the entire membership's viewing.

And now for a contribution of humor:

As you prepare to celebrate the New Year, remember -- your vehicle
has depreciated by at least 20%, taxes will be due shortly and the
majority of the world's population will be facing the bleakest two
months of severe winter weather.  Happy New Year !
