Lucy went to college. However, she really worried her
folks because all she ever wrote home about was boys and
good times. Her mother decided to have a serious talk with
Lucy when she came home for a weekend. The mother
started out by saying, "Now, dear, if you are only going to
college to find a husband, it certainly will be expensive
shopping."
"Yes, I know, Mom," said Lucy, "but what a supermarket."

An angel appears at a faculty meeting and tells the dean that in return for his unselfish and exemplary behavior, the Lord will reward him with his choice of infinite wealth, infinite wisdom, or infinite beauty. Without hesitating, the dean selects infinite wisdom. "Done!" says the angel, and disappears in a cloud of smoke and a bolt of lightning. Now, all heads turn toward the dean, who sits surrounded by a faint halo of light. At length, one of his colleagues whispers, "Say something." The dean sighs and says, "I should have taken the money."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Police in Berlin, Germany Twins released as court cannot tell them apart Twin brothers arrested on suspicion of stealing 5.6m of jewellery and watches in Berlin have been released because police can't prove which one did it. The 27-year-olds had been accused of the daring heist at Europe's largest department store - KaDeWe, reports the Daily Telegraph. The robbers are thought to have abseiled into the shop through a skylight after scaling the side of the building. A court statement read: "From the evidence we have, we can deduce that at least one of the brothers took part in the crime but it has not been possible to determine which one." The brothers, from Lower Saxony, were arrested two weeks after the incident, but because their genetic information is so similar, traces of DNA found at the scene of the crime did not provide conclusive evidence.
A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, he said: "Now, boys, if I stood on my head the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face." "Yes, sir," the boys said. "Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn't run into my feet?" A little fellow shouted, "'Cause yer feet ain't empty."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ruanju Re: Don't use IE8 for XP ! Dear Webby IE8 is not good at all! downloaded it to a Windows XP machine and it crashed! Seems to work okay on the Vista machine! Need to warn people of this as you can't just remove 8 and go back to 7 as that doesn't work either. May have to reformat machine to get back to working order! Ruanju! Dear Ruanju Thanks for the warning! Have FUN! DearWebby From Sharon: Dear Webby; What an unusal flower pic today. It's beautiful. Thanks for sharing it. You mentioned IE8 in today's tech dept. I just saw it come up a couple of days ago & wondered if it would be good. Thanks for letting all of us know about it In regards to browsers, eg Firefox, Opera etc. Can you have more than 1 browser? If so is there a benefit to having more than on & how can you switch from one to another? I've wondered about his before. Again thanks so much for your humor & helpful tips. Sharon Dear Sharon You have one DEFAULT browser, and as many optional browsers as you like. Because different browsers all have their own little peculiarities, Webmasters usually have five of them to check their work. For example, a page might look great in FireFox, but awful in IE. When you install new browsers, they are as eager as a new girlfriend to become my favorite and default browser, but there is an option to decline. They do put an icon onto your desktop, and you can drag that into the Task Bar down by the start button. Here are some reasons why you might want to have more than just one browser: IE6: Great for music and Internet radio FireFox: Most reliable on complicated pages, good for anything except midi music Opera: Handles multilingual fonts very well Google Chrome: Usually the first to work properly with new gimmicks Safari: Very clear fonts, ideal for reading e-books and any long text. Not so good on anything else. IE7 is a bit flakey, trying too hard to imitate FireFox IE8 is no good at all except on Vista. Have FUN!

The local pastor noticed that Little Johnny hadn't been to Sunday school in a long time. He was not surprised that Johnny's parents had not been to church in a month of Sundays, but it was unusual for Johnny to miss Sunday school for so long. He went to Johnny's house and knocked on the door. Little Johnny answered the door, took one look at the pastor and called to his father, "Hey, Dad! That guy that collects money for God is here!"

A man and his little girl were on an overcrowded elevator. Suddenly a woman in front turned around, slapped him and left in a huff. The little girl remarked, "That's okay, Daddy, I didn't like her either, she was stepping all over my toes. That's why I pinched her."
