Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on
after others have let go.

My method is to take the utmost trouble to find the right

One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of the Chicken
Little to her class. She came to the part of the story where chicken
little tried to warn the farmer.

She read, "...And so Chicken Little went up to the farmer and
said, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!"

The teacher paused then asked the class, "And what do you think that
farmer said?"

Little Johnny raised his hand and said, "I think he said - "Holy Cow!
A talking chicken!"

=========================================== A Congressman was once asked about his attitude toward whiskey. "If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I'm against it. "But if you mean the elixir of Christmas cheer, the shield against winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public coffers to comfort little crippled children, then I'm for it." "This is my position, and I will not compromise!" ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Aaron Janssen. 36 of polk County, Iowa ya mean dope is not legal in Iowa? September 23, 2006 - Des Moines, Iowa - The Des Moines Register Aaron Janssen made it way too easy. Janssen, 36, was arrested on marijuana charges Thursday, after he was spotted taking a leisurely stroll through downtown, carrying his recently harvested pot plants. Polk County Chief Deputy Mark Burdock said he did a double take when he looked out his office window at the county jail and saw Janssen walking down the sidewalk, carrying his freshly harvested crop. "I look out the window ... , and I see him walking north carrying a green leafy substance, all pulled up by its roots," Burdock said. "He was carrying it like you'd carry a bundle of presents. It was tall enough where he was looking over the top of them, and he's just walking like nothing's going on." Burdock said he went outside and yelled at Janssen, who walked right over to him, still carrying the plants. Janssen said the plants were part of his marijuana grown near the Des Moines River, but wouldn't say exactly where, Burdock said. Deputies also found two two-pound bags of processed marijuana strapped to each of Janssen's legs, and a third wrapped in a sweater. Burdock said the marijuana had an estimated street value of about $2,000. ===========================================

I have no idea what this is, or if I should be updating the Windows Defender. I received a notice of update today, but in the content of the description there was a warning that you should have a 64 bit. I checked, per their instructions via start, computer, right click on properties, but I do not see anything about a 64 bit. Should I have Windows Defender on my computer at all? You've helped me in the past, and I'm seeking help again. Carol Dear Carol Windows Defender Beta is just Microsoft's attempt to come out with a program that will do what Spybot-Search&Destroy does, but that they can rent out on a monthly basis, IF and WHEN it is as good as Spybot-S&D. Well, so far it isn't, and so they are calling it Beta 2, and hope that you will volunteer and help them find the bugs in it. The data on my machines is too important to risk it with a Beta version of anti-spyware. Therefore I am sticking with Spybot-Search&Destroy. It works. and it's free. Spybot Search&Destroy is built and maintained by volunteers. They gratefully accept donations to help with the server costs, but they don't nag you about donations.

He felt tired, run down, and generally suffering from exhaustion. "My diagnosis is simply that you are worn out," said the doctor. "I believe you've been playing too much golf." "Too much golf," exclaimed Robert. "What can I do?" "You need to take some time off and relax," said the doctor. "My advice to you is to spend some time at the office." =========================================== Deeli's Kudos September 27, 2006 - North Ridgeville, Ohio - AP People from as far away New Mexico and the Netherlands were in northern Ohio over the weekend, getting up close and personal with skunks. Skunk owner Jeri Lynn Poling says others may not understand, but skunks make great pets and are soft and cuddly. She thinks having a rat or a lizard or a snake is weird. Poling and other polecat enthusiasts gathered in North Ridgeville, about 25 miles southwest of Cleveland, for the sixth annual Skunkfest. The event raises money for Skunk Haven, a nonprofit group that saves and rehabilitates injured skunks. And, pet skunks compete in beauty, personality and costume contests. By the way, they all pass the sniff test, because those domesticated skunks are deodorized. ============================================= The Express Empress and her Outlook Express tips are on a separate blog at You can post your questions there and read current and past queries and replies, or email to the Express Empress at, and she will post it into the blog for you. ============================================= Daily tip from Your Spouse and Your Credit Score Keep in mind that your credit report may be tied to your spouse's.
