Nothing fixes a thing so intensely in the memory as the wish to forget it. --- Michel de Montaigne "Either you run the day or the day runs you." --- Jim Rohn:
Imelda reported for her University PHD final examination which consists of "yes/no" type questions. She takes her seat in the examination hall, stares at the question paper for five minutes, and then in a fit of inspiration takes her purse out, removes a coin and starts tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet - Yes for Heads and No for Tails. Within half an hour she is all done whereas the rest of the class is sweating it out. During the last few minutes, she is seen desperately throwing the coin, swearing and sweating. The moderator, alarmed, approaches her and asks what is going on. "I finished the exam in half and hour. But, she says, I am rechecking my answers, and half of them are wrong !"
An airport ticketing agent was working at the counter and began asking a passenger the required security questions. "Have you received any objects from an unknown person to carry aboard the airplane today?" "No," said the woman. "Did you pack your own suitcase?" she inquired, pointing to the traveler's rolling carry-on bag. "Yes," she answered. "Has your bag been under your control since you've been in the airport?" "Well, no, not exactly," the passenger said with a sigh. "The silly thing keeps either trying to go every which way, or else it's trying to trip me. I feel like I am under IT's control."
In a cafeteria : "Shoes are required to eat in the cafeteria." hand written underneath: "Socks can eat any place they want."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Von Nicholas Stevens, 39 of Townsend, Montana Drunk fakes report of being shot An intoxicated Townsend man is being charged for numerous offenses, including lying to officials about being shot. Officials responded to a 911 call about an apparent shooting Tuesday night. A female caller said Von Nicholas Stevens, 39, was headed to St. Peter’s Hospital with a gunshot wound, Broadwater County Sgt. Nick Korthals said. Korthals said he informed members of the Helena Police Department, Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Department, and hospital personnel who were on hand waiting at the emergency room. Stevens never arrived at the hospital. Korthals contacted Stevens by phone. He said he’d run out of gas near Lakeside and was shot and in pain. Stevens told the alleged victim to stay where he was and someone would be out to get him. Medical personnel arrived on the scene and found a small scratch on Stevens’ ear and some dried blood, but no sign of a gunshot wound. Korthals said he had several deputies interview people who had been with Stevens at some point throughout the night, but no one mentioned shots being fired. Stevens accused a man of shooting him. That man can be seen on video surveillance cameras at a local Helena sports bar during the time of the alleged shooting, Korthals said. “Mr. Stevens continued to change his story,” Korthals said. Stevens was charged with driving with a suspended license and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday. Korthals said more charges are pending and he anticipates citing Stevens for obstructing justice and false reporting, and DUI, etc, but the investigation is ongoing.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Patti Re: Dumped and lost icon Dear Webby, There was a new icon on my desktop toolbar that was really bugging me so I went to control panel and unloaded it. OOPS, now I can't play my music. Apparently realtek high definition something or other is what drives the CD's. Dummy that I am, I have no idea how to get it back. Can you help - Please. Thanking you advance, Patti Dear Patti Search for that program. If you didn't change the defaults in your Windoze to something smarter, it probably dumped it into the dumbest place possible: C:\Program Files If you have a smart set-up, it would be in E:\TOOLS or similar place. Find the program, look for an exe file,but not the setup.exe, and try starting the program with it. Once you have found the right file, make a shortcut to it, and drag it onto the desktop. if you can't find that file, then you completely UN-installed it, and have to download it again. If you bought that program, then you should still have a payment receipt with download instructions and possibly a registration key. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Getting The Most Of Your Post-Christmas Shopping The Christmas frenzy frenzy is over and retailers are still trying to move merchandise from their shelves. Now is the time to shop if you can think ahead some. I gather up my discount bucks I got from buying before Christmas. While I was out before Christmas, I gave out my email address and got more online coupons. Any special day passes I may have gotten, I get that too. Just to make it a little bit better, I can shop on senior citizen day and take my mother or sister. A recent trip to a popular department store had me buying Christmas and Thanksgiving items at 95% off. Seasonal items will be the heaviest discounted. Avoid food items because they will not save well. Wrap scented candles in cellophane and store in a cool place to extend their scent.

The 75-year-old man sat down in the orthopedic surgeon's office. "You know, Doc," he said, "I've made love in more exotic cars than anyone I know. Must be many hundreds!" "And now, I suppose, you want me to treat you for the arthritis you got from scrunching up in all those uncomfortable positions," the medic said. "Naw," the old fellow replied. "I want to borrow your Lamborghini!"

Donald MacDonald from the Isle of Skye went to study at an English university and was living in the hall of residence with all the other students there. After he had been there a month, his mother came to visit him. "And how do you find the English students, Donald?" she asked. "Mother," he replied, "they're such terrible, noisy people. The one on that side keeps banging his head on the wall and won't stop. The one on the other side screams and screams all night." "Oh Donald! How do you manage to put up with these awful noisy English neighbors?" "Mother, I do nothing. I just ignore them. I just stay here quietly, playing my bagpipes."
