You never know how a horse will pull until you hook him up to a heavy load. --- Paul "Bear" Bryant,
A ladder was placed against the bedroom window of a burning house, and a young fireman rushed up. Inside was a curvy brunette in a see-through nightie. "Aha," said he, "You're the second pregnant girl I've rescued this year!" "But I'm not pregnant," indignantly exclaimed the brunette. "You're not rescued yet either."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to some residents of Eastrington, England sent in by Deeli Bonehead Tax EASTRINGTON, England (UPI) -- Residents of Eastrington, England, say the local council's plans to fine them $2,000 for parking in driveways with the wrong kind of curbs are "ridiculous." The owners of 12 houses on the village's Pinfold Street said they received letters from the council citing a 30-year-old law requiring their driveways to have "dropped" curbs that allow for easier access, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday. They said the letters threatened $2,000 fines if they continue to park in their driveways without correcting the curbs. "I just couldn't believe it when the letter arrived," said Ken Laverack, 61. "The council themselves put my drive in 20 years ago and now they're saying I can't use it. It's absolutely ridiculous, my car is just on the road now." Neighbor Adam Stroud agreed. "Why should we have to pay to have this work done to council property -- the footpath -- just so we can cross it to get to our private land?" he asked. A spokesman for East Riding of Yorkshire Council, which sent the letters, said the enforcement is aimed at reducing damage to roads. "Homeowners are able to apply for a properly constructed drop curb to provide vehicular access to property and many thousands of East Riding residents have followed this procedure," he said.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Linda Re: Erratic cursor Dear Webby Often my cursor "flies" off the screen. Why is this happening? I recently had to have technical support to repair a problem and the tech gained control of my computer. Repairs were made but now I am faced with this problem. Any suggestions? I need help. Thanks Webby. Enjoy your website very much. Linda Dear Linda 99% of the time that problem is caused by the mouse, especially if it is an optical or laser mouse. Try cleaning the little glider pads under the mouse and then polish them by running the mouse hard over some scrap paper (not glossy or laser printed) After that, use regular white paper as a mouse pad. If that does not help, then you may have some virus infection. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com The Benefits of Buying Used Cars Save on your next car purchase by buying used. One concern I hear is that they will require expensive repairs. Here's one way to look at it. If a new car costs you $35,000 (or more) and a 5 year old version costs $15,000, the difference in price leaves you a lot of room to make repairs.
