Where we have strong emotions, we're liable to fool ourselves. --- Carl Sagan There is nothing more demoralizing than a small but adequate income. --- Edmund Wilson Did you ever see the customers in health-food stores? They are pale skinny people who look half-dead. In a steak house you see robust, ruddy people. They're dying, of course, but they look terrific." --- Bill Cosby
At a local coffee shop, a young woman was expounding on her idea of the perfect mate to some of her friends. "The man I marry must be a shining light amongst company. He must be musical. Tell jokes. Sing. And stay home at night!" A little old lady at the next table overheard and spoke up, "Girl, what you describe, is a computer."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ashanti Barber, 19, in Detroit Dine, dash, crash DETROIT -- Four women trying to skip out on their bill at an International House of Pancakes ended up plowing into the Detroit restaurant as they sped away. No one was injured in the accident Tuesday morning. Restaurant manager Raymond Jefferson tells the Detroit Free Press the women ran from the IHOP just after 6 a.m. without paying their bill. Their server chased them, but they got away, almost. One of the women lost control of the Mercury Cougar as they drove away, crashing through the restaurant's wall and smashing at least one large window. The driver, 19-year-old Ashanti Barber, was ticketed at the scene. Her father, John Barber, tells The Detroit News his daughter had more than $200 in cash on her at the time and was talked into dining and dashing by friends.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Frank Re: How good are X-10 cameras? Dear Webby, How good are those X-10 wireless cameras? What is the picture quality of them? Frank Dear Frank For surveillance purposes, the quality is good enough. However, if you want to take spectacular sunset shots or movies of your neighbor tanning in her back yard, you will be dissappointed. That is not what they are intended for. Some of the better digital cameras now have optional wireless remote controls. Instead of setting a self timer or use a bulb, you press a button on a garage door opener style key-fob. If you want to take high quality pictures or short movies, you are much better off using a proper digital camera for that. Use the cheap X-10 camera to monitor the sunset or the wildlife in the back yard, so that you know when to click the digital camera for the high quality pictures. Keep in mind that most of the X-10 cameras, especially the black and white ones, reach way into the infra-red to get more "volume" through the tiny plastic lens and onto the sensor. While this is exactly what you want for surveillance, it produces an unnatural picture. It will also make it appear as if it is a lot lighter outside than it actually is. Have FUN! DearWebby

A customer wanted to ask his attractive waitress for a date. but couldn't get her attention. When he was able to catch her eye, she quickly looked away. Finally he followed her into the kitchen and blurted out his invitation. To his amazement she readily consented. He said, "Why have you been avoiding me all this time? You wouldn't even make eye contact." "Oh," replied the waitress," I thought you wanted more coffee, and it's too close to shift change to make another pot."
