Nothing can so alienate a voter from the political system as backing a winning candidate. --- Mark B. Cohen Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes. --- Oscar Wilde
Before his daring escape from prison, an infamous criminal had been photographed from four different angles. The FBI sent copies of the pictures to police chiefs all across the state, with orders to notify the FBI the moment an arrest was made. The next day, the Bureau received a faxed reply from the ambitious sheriff of a small town: "PICTURES RECEIVED. ALL FOUR SHOT DEAD WHILE RESISTING ARREST."
A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his good suit, she warned, "Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit." "And why not, darling?" "You know that you always have a headache next morning after wearing that suit!"

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sharon Re: Avast's auto-corrupt problem Dear webby; Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Here is what they suggest; "Reinstall avast! completely, please. It seems to be the easiest solution of the problem. Even if you did it before, do it again this way, using the uninstall utility, please: Uninstall the version of avast! that's currently installed on your computer using our uninstall utility, that can be downloaded from this page: http://www.avast.com/eng/avast-uninstall-utility.html Use it in safe mode of Windows - in this mode you don't need to disable the self-defense module. Here you can learn how to start Windows in safe mode: http://www.pchell.com/support/safemode.shtml After using that tool, restart your computer" Do you think I should just go to the uninstall link here & then maybe get a fee trail of McAfee & after that go back to installing Avast again would be ok? This is the 1st time in several years of having Avast I have encountered this. I am leary of trying to use safe mode for staring up. really can't affors to pay for a virus prigram just yet & I have had avast for a long time. I know you recommend McAfee. Sharon Dear Sharon McAfee VirusScan is only about $30 a year! 2 - 3 hours baby-sitting. Personally, the only way I like babies is barbecued, with lots of onions. Normally, I am the one who keeps the hands in the pocket, when somebody thrusts a baby at me, and the one who asks them what kind of sound they make when they are dropped. But to get McAfee, I would cheerfully pretend for 2 - 3 hours, that I can babysit, if properly motivated. I would UN-install Avast in Safe mode, reboot to normal mode, get McAfee. and book another baby-sitting session for next January. Have FUN! DearWebby
We had spent the day moving from our farmhouse into our new house in town. Early the next morning, our 3 1/2-year old ran into our bedroom to wake us up. I dressed him and told him to play in the yard and to quit bothering us. About 20 minutes later, he came running back. "Mommy, Mommy," he exclaimed, "everybody here has doorbells.... ... and they all work."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Dental Floss for Sturdy Buttons When my children were little, I used to secure buttons on their clothing with dental floss. There is no need to remove the button or existing thread. Just thread a needle with the floss and go through the shank or thread holes of the button once or even twice and tie it off. If it's a dark colored button, you can color the floss with a permanent marker to make it less noticeable. You can't break dental floss with your bare hands and the buttons will stay on until you want them off. This is especially helpful on coats/jackets and jean waistbands. No more lost buttons! Source: My Mom By Carol from TX Dental Floss works just fine for many types of sewing. When I lived in the bush in the Yukon, I used it for everything from sled dog harnesses to sewing leather knee and elbow patches on, tent repair, general mending, and of course buttons and zippers.

A paramedic was asked on a local TV talk-show program: "What was your most unusual and challenging 911 call?" "Recently we got a call from that big white church at 11th and Walnut," the paramedic said. "A frantic usher was very concerned that during the sermon an elderly man passed out in a pew and appeared to be dead. The usher could find no pulse and there was no noticeable breathing." "What was so unusual and demanding about this particular call?" the interviewer asked. "Well," the paramedic said, "we carried out four guys before we found the one who was dead."
