Half of the modern drugs could well be thrown out of the window, except that the birds might eat them. --- Dr. Martin Henry Fischer
I'm a counselor who helps coordinate support groups for visually-impaired adults. Many participants have a condition known as macular degeneration, which makes it difficult for them to distinguish facial features. I had just been assigned to a new group and was introducing myself. Knowing that many in the group would not be able to see me well, I jokingly said, "For those of you who can't see me, I've been told that I look like a cross between Paul Newman and Robert Redford." Immediately, one woman called out, "We're not THAT blind!"

A young man excitedly tells his mother he's fallen in love and going to get married. He says,"Just for fun, Ma, I'm going to bring over 3 women and you try and guess which one I'm going to marry." The mother agrees. The next day, he brings three beautiful women into the house and sits them down on the couch and they chat for a while. He then says, "Okay, Ma, guess which one I'm going to marry." She immediately replies, "The one in the middle." "That's amazing, Ma. You're right. How did you know?" "I don't like her."

Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a 38 year old male in Reading, Pennsylvania April 9, 2009 - Reading, Pennsylvania - Reading Eagle A Reading man was upgraded to fair condition in Reading Hospital on Saturday, and now been released a day after he was involved in a bizarre crash on the West Shore Bypass. West Reading police said the 38-year-old man was heading west at about 55 mph when he climbed out the driverís side window of his minivan, stood on the roof and rode the vehicle until it crashed and catapulted him into woods along the highway Friday at 3 p.m. The man then took off his clothes and ran naked for several hundred yards down the highway, all while bleeding from a foot-long gash in his side, witnesses said. Police used three separate jolts from a Taser as well as pepper spray in an attempt to subdue the man. They eventually tackled him and hauled him to the hospital, police said. Police have not charged him while they are waiting for the results of toxicology tests taken at the hospital Friday. He did not know how long it will take to get the test results. The Reading Eagle is withholding his name.

An elderly man on a moped (both looking about 90 years old) pulls up next to a sports car at a red light. The older man looks over the sleek, shiny surface of the car and asks, "What kind of car ya' got there, sonny?" The young many replies, "A 1997 Turbo Z123DX. They cost $500,000." "That's a lot of money!", says the older man, shocked. "Why does it cost so much?" "Because this car can do up to 320 miles an hour!" states the cool dude proudly. The moped driver asks, "Can I take a look inside?" "Sure," replies the owner. So, the older man leans up against the car, pokes his head in the window, and looks around. Then, leaning back on his moped, the older man says, "That's a pretty nice car, all right." Just then, the light changes, so the young man decides to show the older man what his car can do. He floors it, and within 30 seconds the speedometer reads 320 mph. Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rearview mirror. It seems to be getting closer! He slows down a little to see what it could be, and suddenly, whhooossshhh! Something whips by him, going much faster!" "What on earth could be going faster than my Turbo Z123DX?" the young man asks himself. Then, ahead of him, he sees a dot coming toward him. Whooosshh! It goes by again! And, it almost looked like the older man on the moped! "Couldn't be," thinks the guy. "How could a moped outrun a Turbo Z123DX?" Again, he sees a dot in his rear view mirror! Whooosh, Ka-Bbblaamm! It plows into the back of his car, demolishing the rear end. The young man stops the car, jumps out, and it's the older man! Of course, the moped and the older man are hurting for certain. He runs up to the moaning older man and says, "You're hurt bad! Is there anything I can do for you?" The older man groans and replies, "Yes. Unhook my suspenders from your mirror!"
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Charles Re: Cookies and Passwords Dear Webby, Every time I delete the cookies, all my passwords are gone. Is there a way around that ? Charles Dear Charles That is a safety feature that allows you to clean the passwords from the auto-complete if you have to go away from your machine or go on holidays. Just get yourself a little prayer book and write your passwords into that. Burglars or anybody trying to break into your machine are unlikely to even look at your little prayer book. For really high security leave off the last two letters from every password. By having the first part, you will easily enough remember the last two letters. Personally, I use RoboForm. You can password protect the entire collection of sign-ins and log-ons with one password, and take the password protection off when you return. Have FUN! DearWebby
