SUBSCRIBING INSTRUCTIONS:
1) http://thehumorlist.us/subscribe.htm

2) The one-time subscriber fee is now $14.95 for one email address or $19.95 for two email addresses.

3) After payment through PayPal, you will be directed back to the Humor List website. Because PayPal and SimpleLists are not directly connected, there is a second step that must be completed. Please continue by adding your subscription information to the SimpleLists form.

4) One of the factors in deciding to allow SimpleLists to become our new mailing list service was their strict anti-spamming policy. After completing the SimpleLists form, you will be sent a "Request to join mailing list thehumorlist@simplelists.com" email with a confirmation link. Be sure to confirm your email address. If a subscriber has not "confirmed" their email address - SimpleLists will not allow us to include their email address for daily mailings.

DOUG'S TRADITIONAL HUMOR CONTRIBUTION
And finally, the one feature which has been featured in all Traffic Reports, the contribution of Humor. Since, I am not a real regular contributor, I will not be providing new Humor. Instead, I will provide a joke from the archives. It will be at least 14 months old, so most of you won't remember it. This is my contribution of Humor from the Archives:

This joke is joke #2 in the Digest For 5/21/1998
http://archive.thehumorlist.us/Site1/Digests/H9805210.php#Joke2
From: Jim Moore Jr
Subject: Middle Age

* Past 50, men are faced with a lot of temptations --
Usually, they pick the one that gets them home earliest

* Middle age is when you know your way around --
But you'd rather not go

* I don't have wrinkles, I have "laugh lines" --
I laugh an awful lot !

* Middle age is when your Granddaughter asks you about the 60's
Because they're studying the era in history class

* Being 55 is a lot like driving 55 on the highway --
So many people pass ya.

* Middle age is when you can't turn off your VCR --
or turn on the girls

* Now that I can easily afford to lose a golf ball --
I can't hit any that far anyway

* Middle age is a time when it takes longer to rest
than it does to get tired

* You know you're slipping when you put tenderizer
on your hot oatmeal in the morning

* Middle age is when work is a lot less fun --
And fun is a lot more work

* At 55, everything's starting to click for me --
My elbows, my neck, my knees

* Middle age is when women lie about their age --
Some women even lie about their dog's age
