Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. — Lou Holtz
An instructor at a girls’ school in the southwest is giving her students what she calls a “charm course.” “You give your escort the chance to be gallant,” she says. “For instance, you should remain seated in the pickup truck until he has had time to step around and open the door for you.” Then, returning to reality she adds “Of course, if the big oaf is in the restaurant flirting at the waitress, don’t wait any longer.”

Re yesterday's Bonehead Award: Seattle Drug-otels on eBay No bids on those overpriced drug-otels so far, of course, at the ridiculous price they want. An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to the Ramirez family in Denton, Texas Robber turned out to be Dad A US pizza worker was shocked when a workmate overpowered a disguised robber - and it turned out to be her father. Stephanie Martinez was getting money out of a cash drawer when Rudy Sandoval fought back against the intruder, knocking off his wig and sunglasses. Ms Martinez was so surprised when she saw the robber's face that she dropped the money, reports the Dallas Morning News. "I said, 'Don't hit him again! That's my dad!' And he said, 'What's he doing here?' and I said, 'I don't know!'" Police say the suspect, Benjamin Ramirez, 41, ran out of the pizzaria in Denton, near Dallas, Texas, to a pick-up truck, where Ms Martinez's mother and husband were waiting. But officers don't think Ms Martinez knew her family was planning the robbery. "We will not be filing charges against her," Sgt. James Brett said. "Her husband told us she didn't know. He knew they were going to rob someplace, but he thought it was going to be a convenience store." Witnesses followed the pickup and helped lead police to it, where Ramirez, Sonia Palacios, 38, and Jose Miguel Martinez, 26, were arrested. All three have been charged with aggravated robbery. ... rangecrime
Hair cut Women's version: Woman1: Oh! You got a haircut! That's so cute! Woman2: Do you think so? I wasn't sure when she gave me the mirror. I mean, you don't think it's too fluffy looking? Woman1: Oh God no! No, it's perfect. I'd love to get my hair cut like that, but I think my face is too wide. I'm pretty much tuck with this stuff I think. Woman2: Are you serious? I think your face is adorable, and you could easily get one of those layer cuts - that would look so cute I think. I was actually going to do that except that I was afraid it would accent my long neck. Woman1: Oh - that's funny! I would love to have your neck! Anything to take attention away from this two-by-four I have for a shoulder line. Woman2: Are you kidding? I know girls that would love to have your shoulders. Everything drapes so well on you. I mean, look at my arms - see how short they are? If I had your shoulders I could get clothes to fit me so much easier......... Men's version: Man1: Got your ears lowered? Man2: Yeah. That time of the year.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Eddie Re: Need for remote drive Dear Webby Got to pick your brain one more time........ here is the scenero ....... I have heard that you can fix another computer that has a minor problem and or reformat with out taking apart the computer (hard drive and making it a slave) ....... Can you hook up 2 computers using either USB or Ethernet Cord to scan and repair the bad computer? And does the computer that is bad --- when hooking it up, does it have to have the monitor, keyboard and all connected? Have a great day almighty and powerfull ....... Mr. Webby Eddie Dear Eddie If a computer is so messed up that you can't clean it up, and you need to format it, you can do that without opening it up. Just stick the set-up CD into the drive and reboot. You CAN scan a computer over a network, but you need to have a network license for the scanning program. The free sample versions usually on't include that, however, you can scan a USB drive, since it acts like a local drive. The only time you have to take the drive out and put it into a USB drive, is when Windows won't stay lit up or won't boot up, but you want to salvage data before formatting and reloading Windows. Taking the drive out is about as technically challenging as taking a beer out of the fridge, but might be a bit more physically challenging, if your computer is deep under your desk. Once the drive is in a USB drive enclosure, it acts like the second drive of the machine, that the enclosure is plugged into. No need for a second monitor or keyboard. Unless you need to salvage irreplaceable data, and can't upload it to the net or burn it onto a CD, just format and reload. You will never be able to clean up a totally messed up computer by using free utilities, just like the ones that caused the mess in the first place. Have FUN! DearWebby

Grampa was telling his youngest grandson abuot his terrifying experience with cannibals. "There I was, lost in the middle of the jungle, surrounded by twenty hungry cannibals." His grandson, Oleander, said, "But last time you told me, there were only ten hungry cannibals." To which grampa answered, "Ah, but you were too young then to know the whole horrible truth!"

A noted psychiatrist was a guest at a National Organization for Women gathering, and his hostess naturally broached the subject in which the doctor was most at ease. "Would you mind telling me, Doctor," she asked, "how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?" "Nothing is easier," he replied. "You ask him a simple question which everyone should answer with no trouble. If he hesitates, that puts you on the track." "What sort of question?" "Well, you might ask him, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?' The woman thought a moment, then said with a nervous laugh, "You wouldn't happen to have another example, would you? I must confess I don't know much about history."
