At the candy store Judi had about 20 bags of candy. A smart-alek behind her in line told her: "You should push the air out of them. The candies might cost less if they don't have the weight of the air in them." So for a few minutes she let the air out of the bags. After she did that he told her it didn't really matter. It would have weighed the same. Judi was more confused than ever and said, "If having air in the bag doesn't weigh any more, then why does it make the bags look so fat?"
It was young Anthony's first ride in a railway train, and the succession of wonders reduced him to a state of hysterical astonishment. The train rounded a slight bend and, with a shriek of its whistle, plunged into a tunnel. There were gasps of surprise from the corner where Anthony was kneeling on his seat. Suddenly the train rushed into broad daylight again, and a small voice lifted in wonder. "Wow! It's tomorrow!" exclaimed the small boy.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Brenda Sue Rawls, 50 in Sumner County, Tennessee Nutty Teacher charged with vandalism An elementary school teacher was charged Monday, Nov. 30 with vandalizing Portland East Middle School. Brenda Sue Rawls, 50, is accused of using sardine juice, condoms and lubricant to vandalize a mini-fridge, a teacherís desk and three lockers, according to the affidavit filed in Sumner County General Sessions Court. The incident is alleged to have occurred on Aug. 16. According to Sumner County Sheriff Bob Barker, the vandalism was allegedly committed in retaliation against a teacher that made comments about Rawls. Rawls is charged with vandalism under $500, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and criminal trespassing. Authorities say a seventh grader assisted with the vandalism. After the incident, Rawls and the student allegedly discussed what they had done and returned to the school with air fresheners in an attempt to clean up the lockers, according to the affidavit. Rawls allegedly admitted to purchasing the sardines, condoms, lubricants and air freshener used in the incident as well as using her key to allow the student into the building, but denies involvement of the vandalism, according to the affidavit. The total damage, including three damaged textbooks, is estimated at $250. Rawls, who had been a teacher a Portland East, was transferred to Watt Hardison Elementary on July 31. Her bond was set at $1,000. She is scheduled to appear in Sumner County General Sessions Court on Dec. 16. The papers didn't mention whether Brenda Sue had always been a bit nutty, or whether the transfer away from Portland East put her over the edge.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Carol Re: MS Powerpoint gone bad and can't find a download Dear Webby: Thank you for all your sharing your knowledge of computers. I had PowerPoint Viewer on my computer, but it has ceased to work. I have tried to download it several times, but it still won't allow me to see the .pps files. I went to your toolbox and clicked on PowerPoint Viewer, and was told the page no longer exists. Can you tell me how to be able to see all the .pps files? Thank you, Carol Dear Carol Yes, it looks like Microsoft moved the download file away from where their download page expects it to be. That can happen to anybody. I was able to find a copy of it and changed the link in the tool box directly to the download. If PowerPoint continues to give you a hassle, just get Open Office. It has a PowerPoint viewer that works. Have FUN! DearWebby
A lawyer and an engineer were fishing in the Caribbean. The lawyer said, "I'm here because my house burned down, and everything I owned was destroyed by the fire. The insurance company paid for everything." "That's quite a coincidence," said the engineer. "I'm here because my house and all my belongings were destroyed by a flood, and my insurance company also paid for everything." The lawyer looked somewhat confused. "How do you start a flood?" he asked.
Daily tip from Install a Programmable Thermostat Last year we replaced our old thermostat with a new programmable one. Since we're here, and awake at different times, we've not set it for basic times to run, so we just hit the buttons when we walk by. It's quicker to shut on and off than our old thermostat. We've already saved a lot of money by switching out our old one for the newer version, actually it's already more than paid for itself. We can't believe the difference in our power bill than this time last year! If we'd have known the difference it would make, we'd have done this much sooner! By Terri from NV You don't have to be on the electrical grid to use programmable thermostats. In my solar house in the Yukon I installed a Hunter Programmable Thermostat in the late 70's, that was powered by 2 AA batteries and the power produced by a thermocouple pointed at the furnace pilot light. It was still working fine when I left the Yukon in 2000. If a hippie can use one in the arctic bush, you definitely can profit from one where you are! Have FUN!

Two men arrive at the Pearly Gates at about the same time, both wanting to know if they will be admitted to heaven. St. Peter asks the first man his name, where he is from, and what he did in life. The man answers that he is John Smith and that he was a taxi driver in New York City. St. Peter looks through his book, then gives the man a luxurious silken robe and a golden staff, and bids him welcome into heaven for his eternal reward. St. Peter then asks the second man the same questions. He replies that his name is Thomas O'Malley, and that he was a priest in Chicago. St. Peter looks in his book, then gives him a used t-shirt and a wooden stick, and bids him to enter into heaven for his eternal reward. Father O'Malley says, Wait a minute! Why did that taxi driver get a silken robe and golden staff while I, a priest and a man of God, got a lousy t-shirt that won't even cover my butt, and a wooden stick? St. Peter told him that the rewards in heaven are based onresults, and while Father O'Malley preached, people slept, but while John Smith drove, people prayed!
