Grammar Teacher: Do you know the importance of a period? Little Johnny: Yeah, once my sister said she had missed one. My mom fainted, dad got a heartattack, the mail man transferred to Alaska, and Father Hibbert next door shot himself.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to neighbors and city administrato in Zagreb, Croatia Sent in by Walter Not very neighborly Woman sat dead in front of TV for 42 years. May 16 2008 By Donna Watson THE remains of a woman have been found sitting in front of her TV - 42 years after she was reported missing. Hedviga Golik, who was born in 1924, had apparently made herself a cup of tea before sitting in her favourite armchair in front of her black and white television. Croatian police said she was last seen by neighbours in 1966, when she would have been 42 years old. Her neighbours thought she had moved out of her flat in the capital, Zagreb. But she was found by police and bailiffs who had broken in to help the authorities establish who owned the flat. A police spokesman said: "So far, we have no idea how it is possible that someone officially reported missing so long ago, was not found before in the same apartment she used to live in." "When officers went there, they said it was like stepping into a place frozen in time. "The cup she had been drinking tea from was still on a table next to the chair she had been sitting in and the house was full of things no one had seen for decades. Nothing had been disturbed for decades, even though there were more than a few cobwebs in there." Neighbours were shocked by the discovery.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Dave Re: Bad clusters on hard drive Dear Webby; Quick question for you, on my hard drive chkdsk found and repaired bad clusters. Some people tell me it is fine and not to worry; others say get a new hard drive ASAP as it will forever have problems and will soon not be workable. What is your feeling. Dave Dear Dave Depending on the value of the data on the drive, and considering how cheap drives are these days, I would recommend getting a new drive if it finds additional bad clusters in a week or two. You can get a 500 GB Western Digital for $70 and up 500 GB drives at Pricegrabber When I consider that I paid $250 for my first 15 MB, yes MEGAbyte, not GIGAbyte! hard drive, then $70 for a 500,000 MB drive is almost unbelievable. Have FUN! Dear Webby

The groom to be said to his fiancee, "Three-thousand eight-hundred dollars for a dress that's only going to be worn once?!" "Who says it's only going to be worn once?" "Oh? You're planning to get married again? You know you can't wear white the second time!" "No, but I do plan to have a daughter and she'll wear it on her wedding day. And she'll have a daughter who will wear it on her wedding day. And her daughter will wear it on her wedding day. It will become a family heirloom." "I'll bet your mother never bought such an extravagant dress." "Oh yeah? Well, she did too, smarty!" "Okay, then why don't you wear hers?" "Who wants to get married in that old thing?"
