Happy Monday Dear BellaOnline Reader! I hope your summer is going well so far and the heat isn't toasting you too much.

Today is Knock-Knock Monday #10. I share a few ANNOYING Knock-Knock jokes and tell you about one of my favorite game websites ever -- it's a cool place called Big Fish Games. Check it out at:


On the Quotations community forum I posted a few very depp and thought-provoking quotes about the upcoming 4th of July holiday as well -


Here's a funny list I thought you'd enjoy -- especially if you're the Boss:


When you take a long time, you're slow.
When your boss takes a long time, he's thorough.

When you don't do it, you're lazy.
When your boss doesn't do it, she's too busy.

When you make a mistake, you're an idiot.
When your boss makes a mistake, he's only human.

When doing something without being told, you're overstepping your authority.
When your boss does the same thing, that's initiative.

When you take a stand, you're being pig-headed.
When your boss does it, she's being firm.

When you overlooked a rule of etiquette, you're being rude.
When your boss skips a few rules, he's being original.

When you please your boss, you're arse-kissing.
When your boss pleases his boss, she's being co-operative.

When you're out of the office, you're wandering around.
When your boss is out of the office, he's on business.

When you're off sick, you're always sick.
When your boss has a day off sick, she must be very ill indeed.

When you apply for leave, you must be going for an interview.
When your boss applies for leave, it's because he's overworked.

And here's this week's quotes:


"During the initial space flights, Nasa discovered that biro pens didn’t work under zero gravity conditions.

To beat the problem, Nasa spent 6 years and $2 million in designing a pen for use in space.

The pen would work under zero gravity conditions due to the pressurized ink inside, it would work under sub zero conditions, underwater, on glass and virtually any surface known to man.

The Russians used a pencil." ~ Ben Stein


"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." ~ Pablo Picasso


"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope and that enables you to laugh at life's realities." ~ Dr. Seuss


"Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday." ~ John Wayne


"A kiss can be a comma, a question mark or an exclamation point. That's basic spelling that every woman ought to know." ~ Mistinguette


"Don't fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have." ~ Louis E. Boone


"Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction." ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery

And that's it Dear Reader! I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!

And please have fun passing this message along to family, friends, enemies, frienimies, the boss, and so on because we all love knowledge and we adore quotes of every flavor.

Have a great July 4th holiday and keep cool and safe!
