On a recent flight, an elderly passenger kept peering out the window. Since it was totally dark, all she could see was the blinking wing-tip light. Finally, she rang for the flight attendant. "I'm sorry to bother you," she said, "but I think you should inform the pilot that he left his left-turn indicator on and seems to have forgotten about it."

Friday, we had a tornado drill. We were in the generator pit under underneath the garage and there's a PA announcement "This is a tornado drill. Please move quickly away from any and all windows." Somebody yelled out: "Quick, switch to UNIX!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Donna Greenwell, 51, Brandy Romero, 27, and Paul Romero, 46. Trio Swapped Kids For Bird Kidnapping charges filed in birdbrained Louisiana exchange FEBRUARY 26--A trio of Louisiana nitwits agreed to swap two young children for a $1500 cockatoo and $175, police charge. The deranged exchange was hatched after Donna Greenwell, a 51-year-old trucker, learned that the bird was being offered for sale by Brandy Romero, 27, and Paul Romero, 46. According to Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Office investigators, Brandy Romero told cops that Greenwell contacted her and said that while she could not afford the cockatoo's price tag, she did have children to trade In a bid to sell the bird, the Romeros posted a flyer at a barn, where Greenwell spotted the notice, which included a photo of the cockatoo. Investigators have determined that Greenwell is not the mother of the children, a four-year-old girl and a five-year-old boy. It appears as if the children, whose mother is a criminal fugitive, have resided with various families over the past several years, and have spent the past year in the custody of Greenwell, a convicted pedophile with a lengthy rap sheet. Greenwell and the Romeros, have each been charged with aggravated kidnapping. The children swapped for the bird are now living with a temporary foster family, according to investigator Keith Dupre, who added that the cockatoo was recovered from Greenwell's home, where two other birds resided. When confronted by deputies, Greenwell denied trading the children for the bird, which she claimed was simply given to her by the Romeros.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Steff Re: Debugging Dear Webby, I love your newsletter, and have learned so much from your tech tips. I have a very annoying problem that I hope you can help me with. When I log into certain sites I get a message that there is a "runtime error" and asks "do you wish to debug?". I have selected "yes" a few times, but the (only) debug program - "new instance of Microsoft script editor" never goes through, I get a message "the URI to be decoded is not a valid encoding". Most of the time if I do not attempt debugging I am able to go to the site. Should I just put up with being annoyed, or is there something I can do? Microsoft charges $59 for support help. Thanks so much. Steff Dear Steff That debugging is a leftover from when they copied Netscape and made Internet Explorer. Somehow they can't quite get rid of it. Theoretically, Webmasters and page designers can use that feature for finding problems in java script in their pages. That part is not intended for end users. Just go into TOOLS, Internet Options, Advanced, and look for lines referring to script debugging. Take the checkmarks off those lines. After that, you won't see alerts about script errors any more. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Storing Wood Furniture When you are storing nice wood furniture, make sure you store it in a dry, well ventilated room. If you store it in a damp basement, you could discover moldy and warped furniture when you go to retrieve it. Don't get too carried away with the "well ventilated" bit. Unless it is as well varnished as a fiddle, it will absorb humidity on humid days. Best is to use furniture bags or tightly taped plastic. Just as important is proper and level stacking. Otherwise shelves turn into propellers and tables and chairs turn into rockers. Unless you have a definite time table for refinishing or using the furniture, your best bet is to sell it and put the money onto a furniture store lay-away plan for a future purchase. Have FUN!
