=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to dopey gunslingers in Wichita, Kansas Dopey Gunslingers June 18, 2007 Wichita, Kansas - UPI An 18-year-old Kansas man was arrested over the weekend for allegedly shooting his friend on a dare. Police said the incident began when the 17-year-old friend taunted the 18-year-old with a gun, saying the 18-year-old would not shoot him, The Wichita Eagle reported. The 18-year-old then shot his friend in the thigh, police said. When police arrived, the two reportedly said the older teen had found the younger teen in the street with a gunshot wound, but police said they had reason to be suspicious. Police said the two had been using drugs at the time of the shooting. The 17-year-old was taken to a hospital and the 18-year-old was arrested for aggravated battery, the newspaper said. http://www.arcamax.com/weirdnews/s-204028-959570 ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli for sending this picture: =========================================== My friend Don, a minor-league umpire, is used to being heckled by fans. But imagine his surprise when he was rushing to umpire an exhibition game at Coors Field in Denver. After a long search for a place to change clothes, Don finally located a room with a neatly lettered sign: "Dressing Room, Umpires Only." As he was about to go in, however, he inspected the sign more closely. Below the printed legend was the same message... written in Braille. =========================================== Get a Dish Network for as low as $19.99/month Free HD & DVR Equipment & Free installation Free Dish Network Satellite TV Systems We are nationwide Dishnetwork retailer! http://www.AFreeDish.com ================================== >From Nelrene: You suggested several things for Bev to do to fix her monitor and save $ for a new one. Another suggestion might be to join freecycle and ask if anyone has one they could get rid of. Thanks for the newsletterr Nelrene ---------------- >From Yong Dear Webby... Let Beverly know that stores like Goodwill always have an abundance of monitors for just a couple of dollars. They also have monthly half off sales. She might also place an ad in a public library or store asking for a free donation of a monitor. With all of the new flat screens folks are purchasing, they would be glad to donate their old one. Hope this helps! Yong ------------------ From the Tech Support Pits: From: Doug Re: PC-MOVER Dear Webby, Thanks so much for your everyday letter. I have a question about Vista. There is a a software called PC MOVER that will move all files to operate programs from XP to VISTA. I have tried to load the original software for the programs into VISTA and it will not install correctly. If I purchase this program do you think it would move all the files from my XP to VISTA that are necessary to run the programs? Have you heard of or tried this software? Thanks so much Doug Dear Doug Why would you want to do something as dumb as that? Just format the lemon and put XP on it. PC-Mover is very bad news. If your hand installed programs don't work on Vista, then PC-Mover won't get them to work either. Let's face it, a lot of stuff and a lot of programs simply don't work on or with Vista, no matter how you install them. What makes it even worse, that brain dead mover will cheerfully move all the wacky utilities and gimmicks that you tried once but were never able to completely get rid of. But it will fail on important stuff that you need. If you read the small print way down on their site, you will see that they tell you that you can NOT select which programs are moved and which ones are ignored. For $60 you get handicapped with all the crap that you try to get away from, but have no guarantee that any of the programs, that you need, will ever work again. By the way, the Reviewcenter rates PC-Mover about as low as you can go. Average Ratings: Ease of Set Up 2.9/10 Ease of Use 2.6/10 Value for money 0/10 Overall value 0/10 Total recommendations: 0 Use those $60 to buy an XP license for the new machine and simply install on it what you actually want. Since it worked on the old XP, it will work even better on the new XP. Have FUN!

But for one sixth of the population about a billion people the essential act of taking a drink of water is fraught with risk. Each day, about 6,000 people mostly children die from waterborne diseases such as typhoid, cholera and dystentery. Enter a Denmark company called Vestergaard Frandsen Group, whose main business is malaria prevention its primary product is insecticide-laced mosquito netting and sheeting. Working with an Atlanta company called The Carter Center, it came up with a personal water filter, dubbed the LifeStraw, that uses a series of mesh filters that block bacteria, plus iodine and carbon to kill what's left. The result is water that's cleaner than many developed countries' tap water. The 9-inch blue plastic straw can be carried or worn around the neck. Each straw, estimated to cost approximately $3, cleans a person's drinking water for about a year. It's no wonder that Time Magazine named it an invention of the year, and Forbes put it on its list of 10 things that will change the way we live.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Olives For Less Instead of buying those expensive little cans of sliced and chopped olives, buy a large can, slice or chop what you need and put the rest in a jar with the juice. They will last in the refrigerator for a long time. 1 large can usually equals 3 or 4 small cans for close to the same price.

I opened the door to the garage where I kept my old car. Thankfully the motor turned right over. I turned the heat to high, then went to feed the few chickens I kept, as well as some sheep. I had no choice but to head to town to pick up my beloved dog Pepples. She had been quite ill. The animal clinic wanted to close early due to the approaching storm. It was a short drive. I wrapped Pepples up in a soft blanket. She curled up to sleep. I could barely see through the driving snow hitting the windshield. The highway was glare ice. For years I had driven in winter conditions and took pride knowing I was an excellent driver. I was almost home, when I heard a strange noise. Pepples lifted her head, I looked at her, then with no warning, hell broke loose inside my car. I was so startled I sent my car into a spin. Amazing how fast the ditch came up to grab the car and hold tight like a long lost lover. Finally we stopped. I looked over my shoulder and shrieked when I looked into the beady eyes of a chicken. A stupid chicken! She must have jumped in while the car was warming. I had to walk the last half mile home. Pepples wrapped in her blanket with that damn chicken inside my coat. It clucked and pooped every inch of the way. Husbands can be smart. Mine took one look at the chicken and waited until he was outside before cracking up. Pepples was fine. As for me, I got out my cook books, looking at recipes to cook a bird that had me break my 40 year safe driving record. Stormy O' =============================================

======================================== When the gynaecologist confirmed her suspicion that she was pregnant, Anni got a little scared. "It'll be my first baby," she confessed with a blush, "and actually I don't know the first thing about how babies are delivered." "Don't worry about a thing," reassured the doctor. "It's really not all that different from how the baby got started in the first place." Startled, Anni exclaimed, "You mean three times up and down the courthouse steps, hanging on to Charlie on his dirt bike?" ========================================
