The prospective father-in-law asked, "Young man, can you support a family?" The surprised groom-to-be replied, "Well, no. I was just planning to support your daughter. The rest of you will have to fend for yourselves."
Thanks to Lillemor for sending this picture and letter from her friend Jamie: Here are a few more pics of the grizzly sow and cub I've been following around at Chilko. I also have two short videos posted on YouTube, see below for the links. They are a bit rough, as they were shot from a boat, but are still an entertaining glimpse into the life of a young grizzly family at Chilko Lake.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Richard Anthony Smith, 25, from Knoxville, California Sent in by Ross Agent Bozo got stuck The Associated Press | Thursday, Sep 18 2008 12:48 PM Last Updated: Thursday, Sep 18 2008 12:53 PM It wasn't the preferred way to enter the Knoxville Museum of Art, but Richard Anthony Smith told police he was on a mission. The 25-year-old Knoxville man called 911 from his cell phone before dawn Wednesday saying he was trapped in an air conditioning duct leading from the museum roof, Knoxville police spokesman Darrell DeBusk said. Police and firefighters reached the roof, found a rope and cable and followed them to a vent shaft. Peering inside, they spotted Smith about 45 feet down. "Mission failed," he told them. Hoisted up and read his rights, Smith told police he was a "special agent from the United States Illuminati, badge number 0931" and had rappelled onto the museum from a helicopter, a police report said. He said he was following orders to "defuse and confiscate" a Soviet-made nuclear warhead, specifically a "MERV6SS-22AN" warhead, according to the report. The bomb supposedly was hidden in a blue plastic cow sculpture in the museum basement, he said. However, Smith told officers his "agency" called while he was in the air-vent limbo to say it made a mistake and the bomb might be in a Memphis museum instead. Police charged Smith with aggravated robbery. He was being held on $2,000 bond at the Knox County Jail. Authorities said he did not have a lawyer.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Leesa Re: Sneaky SP3 install attempt Dear Webby, They have done it again. No matter how cautious I have been, SP3 sneaked in a download before I caught it. No, I hadn't had time to install the blocker. Anyway, it is sitting there in my task bar because my firewall wouldn't let it install. I have AMD Athlon, so know it will cause big problems for me that I don't want to have to deal with. My questions is how to I get rid of it now? I don't want to install it, then have to go to add/remove, if it even lets me do that. Have a good one. Havin' fun now Leesa Dear Leesa Install the blocker first. It's fast. So fast that you ill wonder if it really happened. Next, go one step into the install, and select CUSTOM. In there you can take the checkmark off SP3, and put a checkmark onto "Don't bug me about this stuff again", or something to that effect. Have FUN! DearWebby

"Is she all right now?" "She must be," said little Irving. "She stopped yelling yesterday."
