You can't find any true closeness in Hollywood, because
everybody does the fake closeness so well.
--- Carrie Fisher (1956 - )

During a discussion among the club's membership board
at St. Andrews in 1858, a senior member pointed out that
it takes exactly 18 shots to polish off a fifth of Scotch.
By limiting himself to only one shot of Scotch per
hole, the Scot figured a round of golf was finished
when the Scotch ran out.


 On her way back from the concession stand, Sandra asked the
 man at the end of the row, "Sir, did I step on your foot a
 minute ago?"

 Expecting an apology the man said, "Indeed you did."

 Sandra nodded. "Oh, good. Then this is my row."


A widow recently married a widower. Soon after the marriage
she was accosted by a friend who laughingly remarked -
"I suppose, like all men who have been married before, your
husband sometimes talks about his first wife?"

"Oh, not any more, he doesn't," the other replied.

"What stopped him?"

"I started talking about my next husband."

Woman caught walking husband on leash
to get around COVID curfew in Canada

A Canadian woman was caught walking her partner on a leash as
if he were a dog, a hilarious but illegal attempt to get
around Quebec’s newly imposed curfew to slow the spread of
coronavirus, local media reported Monday.

The woman was spotted walking alongside her fake-dog husband
in the city of Sherbrook around 9 p.m. Saturday, an hour after
the curfew went in effect, according to CTV News. They were
each given a $1,500 fine for violating the rules.

The new measures prohibit Quebec residents from leaving their
homes between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., but they provide numerous
exceptions, including one for dog owners. The order states
that “a person who must go out so that his dog can do its
business” is allowed to do so within 1 kilometer from their

Essential workers, students with in-person night classes and
anyone heading to a pharmacy or hospital are also excluded.

Police said the Sherbrook couple did not cooperate with
officers “at all” and insisted they were following the rules —
despite not having a real dog with them. The woman vowed not
to pay for the ticket and said she would accumulate them, the
Sherbrook Police Department told local newspaper La Tribune.

The fines start at $1,000 and can get as high as $6,000 for
repeat offenders.

Besides the couple, whose names have not been released, more
than 700 other people were reportedly fined during the first
weekend under curfew in Quebec.

DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From:Holly Re: Sort Favorites in MSIE Dear Webby Is there some secret, undocumented way to alphabetically sort the Favorites in MSIE ? Thanks Holly Dear Holly yes, there is. ALT A to open the Favorites Use the down arrow on the keyboard to select any favorite. Just select it, don't go there. Now use the mouse and RIGHT click that selected item and carefully take your hand away from the mouse, without ANY mouse movement. type B That shuffles all the favorites into alphaBetical order. Seems like a silly rigamarole, but it is really the easiest and fastest way to sort the favorites. Please note that due to a bug in MSIE that goes back to version 1, ALT ENTER does NOT let you fake a right-click in the favorites. You HAVE to manually right click your selection with the mouse. Have FUN! DearWebby
An employee approached his boss and asked for a raise. "Well" began the head man, "business is bad now, Frank, and I just can't afford to give you a raise." "But I'm doing the three men's work and I always have!" retorted Frank. "Three men's work?" exploded the boss. "Tell me who the other two are, and I'll fire them!"

>From Diana
During lunch, an ad for a lending institution came on the
television set in our employees' lounge. As the commercial
extolled the pleasures of extra money, I remarked that there
was no such thing as "extra" money.

"Yes, there is," my supervisor retorted. "It's what you have
right before your car breaks down."

Many patients call the pathology group where I am office
manager to discuss their medical bills. One irate woman
demanded that I describe every laboratory test on her

Reluctantly, I complied. Starting with the first test on her
bill, I read, "No. 1, urinalysis."

She interrupted me at once. "I'm a what?"
A golfer who was known for his bad temper walked into the
pro shop one day and plunked down big bucks for a new set
of woods.

The staff all watched to see what would happen after he used
them for the first time - more than half expecting he'd come
in and demand his money back.

But the next time he came in, he was all smiles.

"They're the best clubs I've ever had," he said. "In fact,
I've discovered I can throw them at least 40 yards farther
than I could my last ones."
