Traffic Jam

I normally frown on the forwarded internet joke. However, I felt this one had enough humor to make it noteworthy.
A driver is stuck in a traffic jam on the highway. Nothing is moving. Suddenly a man knocks on his window.
The driver rolls down his window and asks, "What's happening?"
The man replies, "Terrorists have kidnapped Bill and Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton. They are demanding a $10 million ransom for the five of them. They said if it's not paid within the hour they are going to douse them with gasoline and set them on fire. We're going from car to car, taking up a collection."
The driver asks, "How much is everyone giving, on average?"
"About a gallon" he replies.

This one would be for M.D. in transportation who has made me a member of his "forwrds" list for all of his garbage.

D.B. Getting Into Trouble

Video Description

D.B. wreaking havoc as always. D.B. is short for "dumpster baby". We found him in our backyard when he was about 10 days old. His eyes weren't even open yet. We think his mom dropped him as she tried to transport him across the back fence. Since we have a dog, she was probably not willing to chance a rescue. We had a cat at the time so our dog was used to them. She was the one that alerted us to the stranger in the yard!!

Amtrak Capitol Corridor

I took this in Alviso on a calm morning. The lack of a breeze provided a great reflective surface on the water.
