A five year old was discussing Noah's Ark with Grandma. Grandma asked, "How many animals went into the Ark?" The youngster replied: "One mail and one e-mail."
A chemistry professor is demonstrating the properties of various acids for his class. He takes out a silver coin. "Now I'm going to drop this silver coin into this glass of acid. Will it dissolve?" "No, sir," one student calls out. "No?" asks the professor. "Perhaps you can explain why the silver won't dissolve in this particular acid." "Because, Prefessor Angus McRae, if it would dissolve in that acid, you would have asked for MY coin!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to an Paul Boucher, 77, in Allenstown, NH Man refused to wait for parade ALLENSTOWN, N.H. (UPI) -- Police in New Hampshire say a man who drove his car through a barricade, striking a police officer, was angry about his street being closed for a parade. Investigators said Paul Boucher, 77, refused to wait for the Old Home Day parade in Allenstown to pass before pulling away from his home. He was confronted by an officer as he drove around a barricade, WMUR-TV, Manchester, N.H., reported. "He told the officer he was going to go through the parade anyway," Allenstown Police Chief Shaun Mulholland said. "The individual cut the wheel, swerving his vehicle around and hit the officer." Mulholland said an officer was able to grab Boucher's keys and stop his vehicle. He was arrested and charged with felony reckless conduct and felony second-degree assault. He is due back in court Sept. 8. The injured officer was treated in a hospital for an injury to his right leg, but has since returned to duty, Mulholland said.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Elvira Re: Flow Charts Dear Webby I need a program to make flow charts for a project. All the ones I looked at, are ridiculously expensive. Do you know of a reasonable solution? Well, I know you do, but can you please tell me about it? Thanks Elvira Dear Elvira If you have a good spreadsheet, like for example Quattro from Corel-WordPerfect, then you can make flow charts with live content, that automatically changes according to data that you have on the same sheet or on other sheets in the 3D stack of sheets. It takes a bit of playing to get fast and comfortable with spreadsheets, but once you are used to their awesome power and versatility, you would not want to restrict yourself to a regular flow charting program. If you don't want to use spreadsheets or if you have fairly simple flow charts and data that does not change over time, then you can use a regular flow charting program. Yes, I agree that most of them are ridiculously expensive, but PC-Magazine has one for just $8. It is surprisingly full featured compared to the expensive ones, especially if you study the instructions at Smooth Flowcharter In my opinion it compares very well with flow charter programs in the $300 - $500 range. Have FUN! DearWebby
A young lady holding a baby walks into a drug store and asks the clerk if she can use the store's baby scale. "Sorry, ma'am," says the clerk. "Our baby scale is broken. But we can figure the baby's weight if we weigh mother and baby together on the adult scale, and then weigh the mother alone, and subtract the second number from the first." "Oh, that won't work," says the woman. "Why not?" asks the clerk. "Because," she answers, "I'm not the mother - I'm the aunt."
Daily tip from Recycling Items for Drainage Fill in Plant Containers Those lightweight plastic cups that flowers are sold in - I recycle them by using them for drainage when I transplant the flowers into terra cotta pots. I flatten them somewhat with my foot, and put them in the bottom of the pot. Then I add the soil and the flowers. The flattened trays are much lighter than broken terra cotta pieces for drainage, and it's a savings because less soil is required. For a large, deep pot, I use three or four smashed trays. When I need to move the pots around on my patio, it's easy because they don't weigh a ton. The smashed trays can be used year after year.

When my three-year-old son opened the birthday gift from his grandmother, he discovered a water pistol. He squealed with delight and headed for the nearest sink. I was not so pleased. I turned to Mom and said, "I'm surprised at you. Don't you remember how we used to drive you crazy with waterguns?" Mom smiled and then replied, "...Oh, I remember....!!!!"
