Just Havin Fun Newsletter
September 18, 2016
From Mike ...
Okay, so maybe reminders do not work. And it appears I have to address this once again.
- DO NOT register for another tourney if you are still playing in one.
Just how hard is that to understand? When this is done, it creates havoc for the hosting TDs for both tourneys.
So let me repeat it again - DO NOT register for another tourney if you are still playing in one.
Have a great week and good luck at the tables!
JHF's Early Bird Special ...
Okay for all you early risers, we have a tourney for you! Every morning during the week, Regular STD will be hosted at 700am. So grab your cup of coffee and join us at the tables!
JHF's Member in the Spotlight ...
And our Member in the Spotlight for September is DaDevil. To learn more about DaDevil, just click on the Member in the Spotlight link on our main page.
JHF's Pro Football Pick'Em ...
The game is on! After Week 1, we have a three-way tie for first with 11 points between Harleymike, Sweett_sassyblues_4u & DJ_Giggles. But it's too early and there's lots of football left to be played. Good luck to those competing this week!

If you need any help, please speak with Harleymike.
Spark Messenger ...
As many of you know, Yahoo Messenger is no longer the friendly messenger we have used for many years. There's lots of changes and it's not so user friendly now. We have been invited to use Spark, which has lots of the features of the old Yahoo. Lots of us have already downloaded this program and you are welcome to do it too (if you haven't). Just click on this link - ctdhosting.com/downloads/spark_2_7_7.exe and when asked for the server, type this - messenger.ctdhosting.com and you should be ready to go. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Sweett_sassyblues_4u.
JHF's Player of the Week ...
Congrats to Ramanron on being JHF's Player of the Week for September 11-17! Ram collected 96 points for his tourney play. Way to go, Ramanron!
JHF's Bingo ...
Bingo! And after week nine, The Precious Ones have moved into first place with 20 spaces covered (only needing 5 more to win). The Winning Card is now second with 18 and the Dirty Daubers are third with 17. The Bingo Party has 14 and Top of the Shop finishes the week with 12. Looks like it's going to be a battle to the end! So good luck to our Bingo teams this week!
JHF's Good Vs. Evil ...
Now let's see just who will admit that they are Evil! Good Vs. Evil will be hosted on Sunday, September 18 at 900pm. Two tourneys will be on the calendar for 900pm. One will be for those who think they are Good and the other will be for those who know they are Evil. Wonder who will win? The Good? Or the Evil?
JHF's Name That Game ...
Wanna play your favorite game? You can pick the game but you have to win first! Name That Game is a 2x2 tourney with the winners picking the game for the next week. Name That Game will be hosted on Monday, September 19 at 900pm. And the game, compliments of Segordon47 & Golfaholic is Crown the Dealer. Grab a partner and join us Monday night!
JHF's All-Star ...
Congrats to Ramanron on jumping rank to #1 in the league. JHF's All-Star will be hosted on Tuesday, September 20 at 900pm. Don't forget that our All-Star is now a 2x2 random partner tourney. The winners will face each other in a final game to determine who moves to #1. The losing partner will also move in rank to #2. This is a great opportunity to take control of first place. Join us at the tables and let's see who will be jumping rank. Good luck to all!
JHF's TDs vs. Members ...
It's time to rumble! The TDs Vs. Members special will be hosted on Wednesday, September 21 at 900pm. There will be two tourneys on the calendar for 900pm. One will be for the TDs and the other will be for the Members. Wonder who will be talking the most smack when the last card is tossed? Good luck to all!
JHF's Roast ...
Another JHF'er has been greased and roasted! Congrats to Amazing_mom_61 on winning Curt19631's roast! In addition to winning the tourney, Amazing_mom got to rename Curt19631 for the week. Curt19631's new name is CurtLovesThePup. For being roasted, Curt19631 got to pick who would be roasted next and Craig110768 is being prepped for the firepit. Way to go, Amazing_mom_61! Thanks for being good sports, Curt19631 & Craig110768!
JHF's Roast will be hosted on Thursday, September 22 at 900pm. The winner of the tourney will get to rename Craig110768 for the week. Each week the member roasted will pick who will be roasted the following week. If a player is roasted, he/she must make a new SHG ID with their new name and play using that new name until the next roast. Your league name will not change. We do ask that names not be totally offensive and that you remember you might be roasted next! IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE ROASTED, PLEASE LET THE HOSTING TD KNOW SO SOMEONE ELSE CAN BE PICKED! Good luck and have fun!
JHF's Top Partners ...
It's time to see just who plays euchre the best as a team! Top Partners will be hosted on Friday, September 23 at 900pm. This is a 2x2 special so grab your partners and start practicing!
JHF's Tag Team ...
Are you ready for a smackdown? It's time for some Tag Team fun! Tag Team will be hosted on Saturday, September 24 at 900pm. So grab your partners and practice your jabs!

On The Lighter Side with JHF ...
The Rest is History - Adam was walking around the Garden of Eden feeling very lonely, so God asked him, "What is wrong with you?" Adam said he didn't have anyone to talk to. God said he was going to give him a companion and it would be a woman. He said, "This person will cook for you and wash your clothes; she will always agree with every decision you make. She will bear your children and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them. She will not nag you and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you've had a disagreement. She will never have a headache and will freely give you love and compassion whenever needed." Adam asked God, "What will a woman like this cost?" God said, "An arm and a leg." Adam asked, "What can I get for just a rib?" The rest is history.

Something to Think About ...
A group of frogs were traveling through the woods and two of them fell into a deep pit. All the other frogs gathered around the pit. When they saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump out of the pit with all of their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died. The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, "Did you not hear us?" The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.
- There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day.
- A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes to kill him or her. Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your path. The power of words is sometimes hard to understand that an encouraging word can go such a long way. Anyone can speak words that tend to rob another of the spirit to continue in difficult times. Special is the individual who will take the time to encourage another.

From Our Members ...
Got Gas - compliments of Sweett_sassyblues_4u
A little old lady goes to the doctor and says, "Doctor, I have this problem with gas, but it doesn't really bother me too much. They never smell and are always silent. As a matter of fact, I've farted at least 20 times since I've been here in your office. You didn't know I was farting because they don't smell and are silent." The doctor says, "I see. Here's a prescription. Take these pills 3 times a day for seven days and come back to see me next week." The next week the lady goes back. "Doctor," she says, "I don't know what the hell you gave me, but now my farts, although still silent, stink terribly." The doctor says, "Good! Now that we've cleared up your sinuses, let's start working on your hearing."
Celebrating JHF Birthdays ...
To anyone celebrating a birthday this week that we don't know about - Happy Birthday!
Celebrating the first day of Fall on Thursday, September 22!
Autumn - author unknown
As summer draws its final breath to prepare its curtain call,
The monarchs begin their epic trek to usher in the fall.
The northern wind breathes out its chill as songs begin to hush,
And paints the trees upon the hill with its artist's brush.
From green to red, orange and brown, the trees discard their masks,
And lay them gently upon the ground for us to begin our tasks.
Autumn makes way for winter's reign, we bid farewell old friend,
Till summer's warmth begins to wane and fall returns again.
Incentives from Case's ...
