Attention Villagers!

The expression "It takes a Village" really means something to us here at TVSD, because keeping our Village going requires all of us to step up and pitch in where we can, and when it is needed.  Recently, several of our Volunteers serving in critical positions have had to step away from their positions for a while, and now we have opportunity for others to get involved with managing and contributing to TVSD.
Specific areas needing immediate support include:
***  Front Desk Volunteers from 8:30 am - 12:30 pm on the following dates:  Friday, April 22,  Friday, April 29, Friday, May 6 and Monday, May 9
***   Volunteer Core Team Chair and Co-Chair  
***   Neighborhood Captain and Co-Captain
***   Board of Directors - Various upcoming positions

Please call Fran Zweibel @ 858-569-8194 as soon as possible if you can assist us with any of the above areas.

Tierrasanta Relay For Life

Where: Villa Norte Park

A guy sends a text to his next-door neighbor:
"Bob, I'm sorry. I've been riddled with guilt and I have to confess: I have
been helping myself to your wife when you're not around, probably more than
you. I know it's no excuse but I don't get it at home. I can't live with the
guilt any longer. I hope you'll accept my sincerest apology. It won't happen
Feeling outrage and betrayed, Bob grabs his gun, goes into the bedroom, and
without a word, shoots his wife.
Moments later the guy gets a second text: "Really should use spell check!
That should be 'wifi'."
John went into a bookshop and asked the salesgirl if she had a book called: "How to Master Your Wife". Salesgirl said: "Our science fiction section is upstairs."

I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older.

Then it dawned on me. They were cramming for their finals!


In fact, that's that Bible stands for - Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.


As for me, I'm just hoping God grades on the curve
So why did the chicken cross the road?

SARAH PALIN: The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, he's a maverick!

BARACK OBAMA: Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs they can keep their eggs. No chicken will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period.

JOHN McCAIN: My friends, the chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

HILLARY CLINTON: What difference at this point does it make why the chicken crossed the road?

GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here.

DICK CHENEY: Where's my gun?

BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken.

AL GORE: I invented the chicken.... and the road.

JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white?

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he is acting by not taking on his current problems before adding any new problems.

OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road so badly. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

ANDERSON COOPER: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he's guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.

PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

MARTHA STEWART: No one called me to warn me which way the chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

DR SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone.

GRANDPA: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

DONALD TRUMP: We should build a wall so the chicken can't cross the road.

BARBARA WALTERS: Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heartwarming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road.

ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken2014, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken2014. This new platform is much more stable and will never reboot.

ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?
