On a recent flight we were given gourmet brownies and cookies. Not hungry, I decided to save them for later, so I placed them in the air-sickness bag that they so kindly provide, though in the last 30 years I have never seen anybody use them for anything other than saving un-eaten food for later, usually to eat while hiding in a quiet corner of the airport and having a smoke or two during the wait for the next plane. When I exited the plane a stewardess asked me: "Sir, would you like me to dispose of that for you?" As usual, I grinned and told her: "Oh, No ! I'm saving it. I got plans for that."

offered to care for the eight-year-old daughter of her next-door neighbor. arrived in time to prepare breakfast and laid a generous helping of bacon and eggs in front of the child. "Mother always serves hot biscuits for breakfast," said the eight-year-old. So, , very eager to oblige, hurried into the kitchen and quickly prepared a plate of hot biscuits and laid them in front of the girl. "No, thank you," she said. "But I thought you said your mother always prepares hot biscuits for breakfast!" said in surprise. "She does," said the child. "But I never eat them."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Robert Kane, 34, of Scranton, PA Man convicted of chainsawing door SCRANTON, Pa. (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania man has been convicted of four criminal counts after a court heard how he damaged his neighbor's door with a chainsaw. Robert Kane, 34, of Scranton was found guilty Tuesday of attempted burglary, attempted criminal trespass, terroristic threats and recklessly endangering another person, The (Scranton) Times-Tribune reported. Kane, who was jailed in lieu of $20,000 bail, could face up to 37 years in prison when he is sentenced. The court heard Kane knocked on neighbor Jamie Zaleski's door March 5 and ordered him to "open the door, or I'll cut it down." Zaleski and several friends fled out the back door of the home after Kane began cutting through the front door with a chainsaw, the court heard. The chainsaw left a gash from the bottom of the door to about halfway up.
One day a boy and his father were at the dining room table working on the boy's Social Studies homework, the chapter about government. The boy turned to his father and asked, "Dad, how many people work in the U.S. government?" Without hesitation, his father said, "Oh, about half of them."

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Karolyn Re: What's a TIF ? Dear Webby I received some files with a .TIF extension. Are they safe and what are they? Thanks Karolyn Dear Karolyn TIF or TIFF files are usually pictures, but they can also be archives of multiple pictures. When sending or receiving faxes, you usually wind up with a TIF file that contains all the pages of that fax. TIFF is an old format that was agreed on in the mid 80's to have a common format for word processors and faxes. Because it can be an archive of enclosed files, it is not completely safe and is in use for executing malicious code on iPhone and iPod Touch. On computers, where you normally view it with more robust graphics software, TIF seems to be quite harmless. TIF is rarely used for high quality graphics, except on Macs, but is quite common in Apple based page lay-out software and desktop publishing programs. Have FUN! Dear Webby
The psychiatrists were attending their first seminar on emotional extremes. "Just to establish some parameters," said the speaker, "Mr. Nichols, what is the opposite of joy?" "Sadness," said the student. "And the opposite of depression, Ms. Biggs?" "Elation." "And you sir, how about the opposite of woe?" Bubba replied, "I believe that would be giddy-up."
