Planning a weekend of entertaining guests, I made a list of
things I needed to do, including taking food out of the
freezer and  grocery shopping.

As it happened, a friend whom I had been promising to take
to lunch asked if we could make it that Friday.

So, hopping into the car, I taped my "to do" list to the
dashboard and went and picked her up.

As she settled into the car, her face dropped.

"Thanks a lot!" she sulked.

Then I glanced at my list and saw the first item:
"Take out the Turkey."

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a peeping Tom in Baraboo, Wisconsin Dumb Tom April 6, 2007 - Baraboo Wisconsin - AP A peeping tom seen peering into a second-floor window of a man's apartment fled before the could catch him, but he left a key piece of evidence behind -- his ladder. Matt Edgerton, 24, said he and a date were at home March 24 when he noticed a shadow move across his bedroom window and went to investigate. When he pulled back the curtain, he was face-to-face with a middle-aged man peering in. "My nose was actually touching the window and it was like, boom! His face was right there,'' Edgerton said. "It was like a horror movie.'' Police Lt. Rob Sinden, who is heading the investigation, said: "The ladder is absolutely in our custody.'' Edgerton said the man seemed just as surprised as he when the curtain was pulled open and scrambled down the ladder. Edgerton ran outside, but the man was gone so he called police. "We have had similar instances in the past, but I cannot say we've ever had an individual use a ladder,'' police said. "That's an individual who is working very diligently at peeking.'' ===========================================

I can only re-arrange the icons in the little hot-bar section by the START, but the rest of the task bar, that has the buttons for programs that are running, there Windows won't let me move them. Thanks Ginny Dear Ginny Yes, there is a way, with the TaskBarShuffler. It is free. You can download it from Shuffler It's not a permanent patch for Windows, and if you want, you can turn it off after sorting your program buttons. They will stay sorted. It is quite civilized, and if you want, you can even tell it to give up it's own little button over by the clock. You can set it to start automatically when Windows starts. Have FUN!

But he thinks the decision of school officials to send him to a new school for the rest of the year was too harsh, so his family is suing. Tyler Tillung, 18, mooned a teacher "suddenly and without thinking about the consequences" in February, according to the lawsuit filed Tuesday. The teacher had declined to let him into a Feb. 21 school lip sync show that was full. He was suspended for six days and reassigned to a new school. But the teen wants to graduate with his Palm Harbor University High class in six weeks and complete his final season on the varsity baseball team, the lawsuit said. "We're talking about his graduation," said Tillung's lawyer, B. Edwin Johnson. "That's an important event in a guy's life. ... This kid deserves a break." School Board Attorney Jim Robinson said administrators stand by their decision. "Without knowing the allegations, we're confident in the administration's position on this case," Robinson said. Palm Harbor principal Herman "Doc" Allen described the mooning as "disgusting" and the teacher as "traumatized."

Each evening bird lover Tom stood in his backyard, hooting like an owl - and one night, an owl finally called back to him. For a year, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. He even kept a log of the "conversation"... Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife had a chat with her next door neighbor. "My husband spends his nights ... calling out to owls," she said. "That's odd," the neighbor replied. "So does my husband!" =============================================

======================================== Thanks to Kati for bringing back this classic: She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates and suitcases. On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things. On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table by candle-light, put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of spring-water. When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar into the hollow of the curtain rods. She then cleaned up the kitchen and left. When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days. Then slowly, the house began to smell. They tried everything; cleaning, mopping and airing the place out. Vents were checked for dead rodents and carpets were steam cleaned. Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked. People stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid quit. Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move. A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house. Word got out and eventually even the local realtors refused to return their calls. Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place. The ex-wife called the man and asked how things were going. He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely and said that she missed her old home terribly and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back. Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on a price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if she were to sign the papers that very day. She agreed and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paperwork. A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home...... And to spite the ex-wife, they even took the curtain rods!!!!!! ========================================
