Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

I have noticed that the people who are late are often so much jollier than the people who have to wait for them. --- E. V. Lucas If a dog jumps in your lap, it is because he is fond of you; but if a cat does the same thing, it is because your lap is warmer. --- Alfred North Whitehead
Three churches - Baptist, Methodist, and Presbyterian - worked together to sponsor a community-wide revival. After the revival had concluded, the three pastors were discussing the results with one another. The Methodist minister said, "The revival worked out great for us! We gained 4 new families." The Baptist preacher said, "We did better than that! We gained 6 new families." The Presbyterian pastor said, "Well, we did even better than that! We got rid of our 10 biggest trouble makers!"
Two youngsters were closely examining bathroom scales on display at the department store. "Have you ever seen one of these before?" one asked. "Yeah, my mom and dad have one," the other replied. "What's it for?" asked the first boy. "I don't know," the second boy answered. "But if grown-ups stand on it, don't go near them for ten minutes. That thing makes them mad."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to and the Lindy Matsko and the Lower Merion School District (PA) Big Brother (and Sister) need to go to jail According to the filings in Blake J Robbins v Lower Merion School District (PA) et al, the laptops issued to high-school students in the well-heeled Philly suburb have webcams that can be covertly activated by the schools' administrators, who have used this facility to spy on students and even their families. The issue came to light when the Robbins's daughter was disciplined for "improper behavior in his home" and Ms Lindy Matsko, the Vice Principal used a photo taken by the webcam as evidence. The suit is a class action, brought on behalf of all students issued with these machines. The lawsuit can be viewed here, at this link. As you can probably imagine, the 1500 affected students and their parents are extremely upset.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Donny Re: Mystery Pop-Up pages Dear Webby, Since yesterday I have been getting website pages (pop-ups?) appearing out of nowhere. Any idea where they come from and how to stop them ? I have Vista and IE8 - haven't had any bad problems for over a year !! Thanks, Donny Dear Donny Sounds like you agreed to something or other and agreed to accept those ads in lieu of paying for whatever. Because it is an agreed form of payment, if some program tried stopping that, it would be the same as if they stopped payment of a check, and they can be sued. Because of that, there is not a lot of easy or automatic help for that kind of stuff. You can try Adaware, and even go onto their forum, once you have installed Adaware, but be very specific about the stuff. Have FUN! DearWebby
Six-year-old Angie and her 4-year-old brother Joel were sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang and talked out loud. Finally, his big sister had had enough. "You're not supposed to talk out loud in church." "Why? Who's going to stop me?" Joel asked. Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, "See those two big guys in gangster suits standing by the door? They're hushers."

The social studies teacher had just finished a unit on war and peace. "How many of you," he asked, "would say you're opposed to war?" Not surprisingly, all hands went up. The teacher asked, "who'll give us the reason for being opposed to war?" A large, bored-looking boy in the back of the room raised his hand. "Johnny?" The teacher said. "I hate war," Johnny said, "because wars make history, and then some poor, innocent kid has to memorize all about it."

The good bishop knew very well that not only did everyone in his small town look to him for an example, but that all too often, all eyes were on him as potential fodder for the local gossip mill, as well. This could be wearing; but usually, he was able to provide the good example and escape the tattlers. One night, however, after a long, hard day, a social obligation beckoned on top of his church responsibilities, and he came to a sudden stopping place. His hostess, noting that he looked tired, asked with concern, "A spot of tea, Bishop?" "No, thank you," he managed. "No tea." "Ah," she said. "Coffee, then?" "No coffee either, thank you." In the spirit of triage, she leaned closer and murmured, "I could bring you a scotch and soda in a dark mug?" "My dear, this is my last word: NO soda."
