Thanks to Roland for this one: My daughter Lili was five when she received a foam CD holder with plastic sleeves for all her music CDs. I explained to her that CDs are sensitive to light and heat, so she should not leave the holder in the sun. During our home addition, the electrician was working in the backyard and Lili had gone to play in the sandbox, leaving her new CD holder on the patio table. My wife saw it and told Lili she was going to put it in the house. Lili stood up in the sandbox and said, "Mommy, put it where the sun don't shine!" The electrician had to take a break.
I know you put the Sacandaga sunset on earlier this week, but I took another last night and thought it even better than the other. Jim The Great Sacandaga Lake - sunset, Sept 20, 2008

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Wendy Brown, 33, of Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin Not acting her age GREEN BAY, Wis. (UPI) -- A 33-year-old Wisconsin woman assumed her 15-year-old daughter's identity so she could be a high school cheerleader, police allege. Police said Wendy Brown of Ashwaubenon allegedly told authorities she posed as her daughter at Ashwaubenon High School -- and even practiced with a cheerleading squad -- to rekindle high school memories, the Green Bay (Wis.) Post-Gazette reported. Brown's true identity was discovered during a truancy investigation initiated after the woman did not attend school after the first day. Since Brown allegedly used her teenage daughter's personal information, including Social Security card and birth certificate, to register for school, she faces a felony charge of identity theft. The newspaper said Brown was previously convicted of obstructing a police officer, burglary and deceptive practices and was arrested Sept. 3 on an unspecified misdemeanor charge. ------------------ If she had attended classes like she had signed up to do, she might not have been caught.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Jill Re: Not getting all mail Dear Webby, I signed up with earthlink like you suggested. Except for them using clueless Taliban for support, everything works fine. But lately I am not getting all my mail and I am even losing all my newsletters. When I write for support, no matter where, I never get a reply. I use the email verification thingie, and I am sure people don't mind filling that out. So what is the problem? Jill Dear Jill The problem is you. People DO object to that silly email verification rigmarole, They dumped you. They no longer consider you as somebody to be included, when they send fun stuff to FRIENDS. The same of course also applies to all your newsletters. If you think that the people, who write newsletters, will hire somebody to fill out those silly email verification forms, then you need to hire a rutabega (very dense turnip) to tutor you. Support is the same, everywhere. Techs don't mind researching the problem and finding answers for you, but there is no second layer to wipe up baby drool and fill out email verification forms. You simply get blacklisted. Automatically. Get rid of that silly rigmarole, and change your email address to one that is not blacklisted. You also get excluded from any postcards. Postcard pick-up notices are sent out. Period. There is no baby-drool squad to fill out email verification forms. Often ANY autoresponder results in blacklisting. You probably don't, but some turnip brains have after hours autoresponders, telling people they won't be abusing their work machine for fun stuff until the next morning or Monday. Most people consider that a nuissance and will blacklist you, if their spam control doesn't automatically do that. Have FUN! DearWebby
