A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. --- Herm Albright
"I play golf in the low 80's," the little old man was telling one of the young boys at the club. "Wow," said the young man, "that's pretty impressive." "Not really," said the little old man. "Any hotter and I'd probably have a stroke."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to 26 teen cheerleaders in Texas 26 teen cheerleaders rescued from elevator How many cheerleaders can cram into an elevator? Apparently not 26. A group of teenage girls attending a cheerleading camp on the University of Texas got stuck and had to be rescued after trying to squeeze into an elevator at a residence hall Tuesday night. One girl fainted and was treated at a hospital and released. Two others were treated at the scene. The elevator doors refused to open after the pack of 14- to 17-year-olds descended from the fourth to the first floor, police said. Responding to a few panicked cell phone calls from the group, police and firefighters summoned an elevator repairman, who spent about 25 minutes extricating them. Campus officials weren't amused. "It's dangerous, actually," said a school police spokeswoman, Rhonda Weldon. "They're lucky that that's all that happened."
Little Johnny had bought Grandma a book for her birthday and wanted to write a suitable inscription. He racked his brain until suddenly he remembered that his father had a book with an inscription of which he was very proud, so Johnny decided to copy it. You can imagine Grandma's surprise when she opened her book, a Bible, and found neatly inscribed the following phrase: "To Grandma, with the compliments of the author."
There was this gracious lady mailing an old family Bible to her brother in another part of the country. "Is there anything breakable in here?" asked the postal clerk. "Only the Ten Commandments," answered the lady.
Still available! Step By Step PC Tune-Up From the Tech Support Pits: From: Microsoft Re: IE7 latest version I had a good laugh today. Emails from from "admin@microsoft.com", not asking me to stop pointing out Vista problems, but inviting me to download the latest version of IE7 ! DUH! I use and recommend the IE7 BLOCKER. Why would I want to download the latest version of a program that I am blocking? MailWasher flagged them as spam, but the sender name caught my eye. Closer inspection revealed that the sender address was From: "admin@microsoft.com" That was what had triggered MailWasher. The download link didn't go to Microsoft either. It went to dariocondes.iespana.es/images/update.exe The site appears to be a juvenile dating site, that allows members to upload their images, or vicious trojans. They are too dumb to restrict uploads to JPG or GIF. If you see ANY solicitation to update or upgrade, dump it. When you do want an update, use a fresh browser window and go straight to the vendor's site by typing it into the address bar. Don't jump there from a link. Have FUN! DearWebby

As I left the grocery store, I noticed two little kids, maybe six or seven years old, selling candy bars in front of the store to raise money for their school band. "I'll buy a chocolate bar on one condition," I said to the boys. "You eat it for me." I bought one and handed the candy back to one of the boys. He shook his head. "I can't," he said. "Why not?" Looking me in the eye, he responded gravely, "I'm not supposed to take candy from strangers."
