There is something I like about old houses. Like old people, their faces tell a story. They stand for some kind of failure, because in the end they collapse.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly!
