Good Morning, !
Today is Wednesday, January 16

Facebook saboteurs at Microsoft murdered the old Skype.

Since MS paid twice as much for Skype as Halliburton plans to
charge for the Southern Wall, they figured they can murder the
old, compact skype and force everybody to use the space wasting
Yuppie Skype.
I will be searching for a skin with a compact look. If you find
one, please tell me!

Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory. [info][add][mail][note]Albert Schweitzer (1875 - 1965) Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit. --- Peter Ustinov A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men. --- Socratex ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Doc for this classic: Rick, fresh out of accounting school, went to a interview for a good paying job. The company boss asked various questions about him and his education, but then asked him, "What is three times seven?" "Twenty-two," Rick replied. After he left, he double-checked it on his calculator (he *knew* he should have taken it to the interview!) and realized he wouldn't get the job. About two weeks later, Rick got a letter that said he was hired for the job! He was not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, but he was still very curious. The next day, he went in and asked why he got the job, even though he got such a simple question wrong. The boss shrugged and said, "Well, you were the closest." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Anni wanted a divorce from Sam. The judge asked, "What fault do you find with your husband?" "Your Honor, he's a liar, a brute, a thief and a brainless idiot." "That's very serious," exclaimed his Honor, "Can you prove all that?" "Prove it? Why everybody knows it." "If you knew all this, then why did you marry him?" "I didn't know it before I married him." Sam shouted out, "She did too!" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Brittany C. Smith, 19, Johnson City, Tennessee Tennessee mom put 8-month-old baby in neighbor's unused outdoor freezer, closed lid A Tennessee mom is facing a child abuse charge after deputies said she put her baby in a backyard freezer on someone else's property. According to WJHL-TV, Brittany C. Smith, 19, of Johnson City, was arrested Jan. 3 after a resident saw her with the baby near the outdoor freezer, authorities said. Witnesses said they found Smith alone in a crawlspace and the 8-month-old in the freezer, which had a closed lid and "about an inch of water in the bottom," the news station reported. The condition of the baby, who was hospitalized, was not immediately known, WJHL reported. Smith was charged with child abuse and neglect, burglary and a probation violation, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
From: Rea Re: MS Office Requirement in school Dear DearWebby, At my daughter's school they are requiring kids to buy or rent Microsoft Office and claim that industry and commerce use MS Office and not "hundreds of different wannabe programs". Obviously she has been bribed by the local MS seller and has no clue about reality. At the place I work, for example, we have used Office Libre for years. It works just fine, and I don't give hiring preferences to people, who are limited to MS Office. I prefer people, who can get the work done and who don't waste time whining about poor Microsoft. What do you think I should do about my daughter? Rea Dear Rea You can make a stink in the local paper. Most likely a lot of parents will feel the same as you. You can also tell your daughter to just save her work in Microsoft format. She can do the work in Libre format and then save it as Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel, etc. That way she learns in the way industry and commerce works, but to her teacher it looks as if she had paid for Microsoft office. Have FUN! DearWebby

My friend, an ex-Marine Aviator wanted to show off his new twin-engine plane. I was riding along as he put it through its paces. Suddenly, we were caught in a violent thunderstorm, with lightning crashing all around us. Next, we lost the radio and most of the instruments. As we were being tossed around in the sky, George said, "Uh-oh!" Fearing the worst, I asked, "What's wrong now?" George replied, "I got the hiccups. Do something to scare me." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Saucer Decoupage Picture Frame If you any have saucers without a cup, you can cut a family picture to fit in the center of the saucer. Glue the picture to the saucer and decorate around the picture. Let it dry and then give it a coating of decoupage. Let that dry and apply a second coating. Thriftyfun.com Cheap spar varnish, the type of varnish that is mopped onto hardwood decks of boats, will work fine too. It is not quite as clear as expensive decoupage, but extremely durable. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

Angus McKenzie comes home and finds his wife in bed with his friend. He shoots his wife. Later, at the pub, his friends ask him why he did that. His reply was, "I can budget one bullet, but I got a lot more friends than I want to buy bullets for." ___________________________________________________
