It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important. -- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
An American tourist in Tel Aviv was about to enter the impressive Mann Auditorium to take in a concert by the Israel Philharmonic. He was admiring the unique architecture, the sweeping lines of the entrance, and the modern decor throughout the building. Finally he turned to his escort and asked if the building was named for Thomas Mann, the world-famous author. "No," his friend said, "it's named for Morris Mann, from Philadelphia." "Really? I never heard of him. What did he write?" "A check."

David, a big city CPA, moves to the country and decides he's going to take up farming. He heads to the local co-op and tells the man, "Give me100 baby chickens." The co-op man complies. A week later David returns and says, "Give me 200 baby chickens." The co-op man complies. Again, a week later David returns. This time he says, "Give me 500 baby chickens." "Wow!" the co-op man replies, "You must really be doing well!" "Naw," said David with a sigh, "I'm either planting them too deep or too far apart!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a Cheyenne, Wyoming texting addicted teenager Texting without a payment plan is expensive! CHEYENNE, Wyo. (UPI) -- A Wyoming father said he took a hammer to his 13-year-old daughter's cell phone after she racked up $4,756.25 in text messaging fees. Gregg and Jaylene Christoffersen said they thought texting was disabled on the phone used by their daughter, Dena, because their plan with Verizon did not include the service, KUSA-TV, Denver, reported Wednesday. However, the service provider charged the family for each one of the 10,000 text messages that Dena sent in a single month. Gregg Christoffersen said he smashed the offending phone with a hammer and he and his wife have grounded Dena until the end of the school year. The couple said Verizon has agreed to reduce the bill to a more manageable amount.
Thanks to Sandie for this story: According to the Knight-Ridder News Service, the inscription on the metal bands used by the U.S. Department of the Interior to tag migratory birds has been changed. The bands used to bear the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated, "Wash. Biol. Surv." until the agency received the following letter from an Arkansas camper: "Dear Sirs: While camping last week I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and I want to tell you it was horrible."
From the Tech Support Pits: From Dag Re: Name Servers Dear Webby, Does it make any difference where the name servers for a domain are located? I am wondering why it takes so long before my site starts loading up in browsers. Dag Dear Dag Yes, it makes a huge difference! If your name server is for example located in China or at some rural ISP in Kentucky, when somebody tries to jump to your site from a link, then their browser first has to inquire from your domain registration about where your name servers are. Then the name servers have to be queried for the road map to your pages. Only then can the request for the pages be sent to wherever they happen to be hosted. We found that we get the fastest results by locating our name servers in the big hub that connects the transatlantic cables and the North American continent. With Millions of visitors to 50,000 postcard sites, the location of the name servers and the page servers makes a very noticeable difference. Have FUN! DearWebby
