On the last day of class, the professor wished the students luck as he wrote a phone number on the blackboard. "If any of you have difficulty understanding the review material, call this number," he said as he dismissed the class. On Saturday afternoon, stumped by one of the review problems, Don reached for the phone, dialed the number provided, and heard a recorded message from Dial-A-Prayer.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jesus Albert Suarez Chavez,17, and 22-year-old Roman Orozco Martinez of Alton, Texas Do drop in! ALTON, Texas (AP) -- Authorities say an inmate trying to flee a Texas city jail crashed through the ceiling into a police chief's empty office. Police say 17-year-old Jesus Albert Suarez Chavez and 22-year-old Roman Orozco Martinez tried to escape through air conditioning ducts of the Alton city jail around 3 a.m. Saturday, but had been spotted by a dispatcher monitoring security video. One of the inmates fell through the ceiling into the office of Police Chief Baldemar Flores. The second inmate was trying to get into the vent. Flores said he didn't know which inmate fell through the ceiling, only that the vents were very small. Chavez and Martinez are charged with burglary of a vehicle, evading arrest, resisting arrest, assault on a public servant and making a terrorist threat. They are now being held in the Hidalgo County Jail.
Sandra was out driving her car and while stopped at a red light, the car just died. It was a busy intersection, and the traffic behind her starting growing. The guy in the car directly behind her started honking his horn continuously as Jill continued to try getting the car to start up again. Finally Sandra gets out of her car and approaches the guy in the car behind her. "I can't seem to get my car started," Sandra said, smiling. "Would you be a sweetheart and go and see if you can get it started for me. I'll stay here in your car and honk the horn like a bleeping idiot for you."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sharon Re: transferring pix from camera Dear Webby; It's me again with a different question. Currently I have a Kodak digital camera. I transfer the pics from the cameral to the Kodak gallery that I installed when I bought the camera. Is there a way to just transfer the pics from the camera to a folder in my documents Instead of going thru the Kodak gallery. I edit them in the Kodak program then save them to a folder in my documents to send out to friends or & put on disk. This would save time if I could go straight to a folder. Thanks again. Have a purrfect day Sharon Dear Sharon Nowadays laptops have a little slot on the side where you can insert the camera memory chip. For desktops you usually have to buy a $12 chip reader on a cord, that plugs into a USB port. That's so that you don't have to crawl under your desk to stick the chip into the computer. The chip reader, wether internal or external, acts like a hard drive. You can edit pictures right on the chip, rename them, copy or move them to the hard drive, even FTP them straight to the web. If your camera uses a 2 GB chip, it's like a 2 GB hard drive, whenever it is plugged in. I browse the pictures with PaintShopPro, weed them out and resize them right on the chip, then copy the results to the hard drive. There is no need for a camera maker's program, or the computer where that program sits. If you visit friends, just take the chip reader along, and you can work on the pictures with their computer. Have FUN! Dear Webby

"It's just too hot to wear clothes today," complained a man to his wife as he stepped out of the shower. "Honey, what do you think the neighbors would say if I mowed the lawn like this?" She replied. "Probably, that I married you for your money."

Thanks to Ed for this story: My wife and I were traveling on the Kansas Turnpike, bucking 30 to 45 m.p.h. crosswinds. At the tollbooth, I asked the attendant, "What do you people do in Kansas when the wind quits?" The tollbooth attendant didn't miss a beat. She answered, "We take the rocks out of our pockets."
