Having just moved into his new office, a pompous, new colonel was sitting at his desk when an airman knocked on the door. Conscious of his new position, the colonel quickly picked up the phone, told the airman to enter, then said into the phone, "Yes, General, I'll be seeing him this afternoon and I'll pass along your message. In the meantime, thank you for your good wishes, sir." Feeling as though he had sufficiently impressed the young enlisted man, he barked at him: "What do you want?" "Nothing important, sir," the airman replied, "just here to hook up your telephone."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to New York City Back Assward Law WASHINGTON - If you have a big 20-year-old TV in your basement, then New York City's new electronic recycling law may help with the spring cleaning. All you'll need to do is contact the manufacturer, who will be required to remove it, and probably send over a delivery truck to pick it up for free. Two industry groups that represent electronic makers are livid about the law, and in a federal lawsuit filed Friday, they argue that there is no way that they should be responsible for recycling all the electronics ever made, or at least what survives under the beds and in the closets of millions of NYC residents. The E-waste program requires manufacturers to collect from residents any electronics that weigh more than 15 pounds. The law applies to all previously purchased electronics. The potential amount of e-waste in NYC amounts to an estimated 1.3 million televisions, computers and other electronic equipment totaling 47.9 million pounds annually, according to the lawsuit. Items weighing less than 15 pounds will be either mailed-back or left at a drop-off point established by a manufacturer. The law was passed in 2008 and is due to take effect next year. The exact date is contingent on city approval of manufacturer recycling plans. The law will prohibit NYC residents from disposing of electronic waste in the trash. In states and in other countries, where legislators are smarter than turnips, laws have required sellers of awkward items (monitors, refrigerators, freezers, Air Conditioners, etc) to charge the buyer a disposal fee for a dozen or more years, and the governments there distribute those funds to local and national recycling centers. In NYC they expect manufacturers to cover the lack of similar past fee collection requirements by raising the prices on future sales. To cover disposal costs for items sold 30 years ago, they would have to charge $200 fees on all new items. All that would do is make everybody in NYC to go for a little drive and buy outside NYC, forcing manufacturers to raise prices across the entire USA, just to pay for the socialist parasites in NYC, who expect the grown-ups to pay for them..
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Jai Re: Really get rid of deleted files Dear Webby, I remember that there used to be a way to go to Find/Search and type in something that would bring up everything that had been so called deleted from the recycle bin. One could go there to retrieve things that were accidentally deleted, and also to get back deleted email. I forget what one typed in the Find/Search to get there tho. It is a good idea to go there and delete everything from there, to really really get rid of it all off the harddrive. Can you help me to with the wording to get back in there again? Thanks loads, Jai Dear Jai Just click on the recycle bin and dump it. If you have highly sensitive files about the moonshining operation in the back yard, or the house of ill repute, that you do the book keeping for, or any files you don't want the revenuers to find, then you can use the shredder that is in CrapCleaner and really make them unrecoverable. There is no other way. Once you have shredded something with CrapCleaner, it's gone for good. Your sordid past has been cleaned up and even the CIA can't resurrect any incriminating evidence. Have FUN! DearWebby
The other day I was playing golf and saw an unusual thing. A golfer became so mad that he threw his brand new set of golf clubs into the lake. A few minutes later he came back, waded into the lake, and retrieved his clubs. He proceeded to take his car keys out of the bag -- then threw the clubs back into the water.
Daily tip from Hand Sanitizer for Sticky Hands Use hand sanitizer on your hands after you've eaten, to get rid of sticky messes when you don't have soap and water available. It removes all traces of "stickiness" and works when dry napkins or paper towels by themselves just don't work. By Truerblue from PA Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

A country woman passed out and her husband,Bubba, called 911. The operator said they would send someone out right away and asked, "Where do you live?" Bubba replied, "At the end of Eucalyptus Drive." The operator asked, "Can you spell that for me?" There was a long pause and finally, Bubba said, "How about I drag her over to Oak Street and you can meet us there?"

A lady was driving from her husband's office to the kids' school, with twelve youngsters in the car, when she blew past a stop sign, and a police car. Much to the delight of the kids, the police officer pulled her over, wrote her a ticket, lectured her on traffic safety, and finished by saying, "Lady, don't you know when to stop?" Tomato red in the cheeks, the embarrassed woman said, "Officer, only seven of them are mine!"
