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

A philosopher is a sort of intellectual yokel who gawks at things that sensible people take for granted." --- Alan W. Watts
Thanks to Art for this story: A property manager of single family residence was showing a unit to prospective tenants and asking the usual questions. "Professionally employed?" he asked. "We're a military family," the wife answered. "Children?" "Oh, yes! Ages nine and twelve," she answered proudly. "Animals?" "Oh, no," she said earnestly. "They're very well behaved."
Stalin appears before Vladimir Putin in a dream, and asks what he can do to help. "What can I do?" Putin groans. "The economy is collapsing, the miners are on strike, the army is useless and nobody treats us with any respect." "Shoot the entire government and then paint the Kremlin blue," says Stalin. "Why blue?" "I had a feeling you'd only want to discuss the second half."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson: Guam could 'tip over and capsize' Johnson expressed his worries during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the defense budget Thursday. Addressing Adm. Robert Willard, who commands the Navy's Pacific Fleet, Johnson made a tippy motion with his hands and said sternly, "My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize." Talking very strained and slowly, like somebody who was was trying to sound sophishicated after a large breakfast of spiked water melon and hash brownies, he also mentioned that he ish very concerned about glow-bull warming. Video of it is at http://snipurl.com/hankjo
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Megan Re: Copy to another machine on the home network Dear Webby, I need to copy a bunch of files from my laptop to the desktop once a day, but really don't want the rigmarole of manually stepping 27 levels deep down into Documents and Settings, etc. on both machines. There MUST be a better way for doing that! Megan Dear Megan First make sure you got the address bar on top of the File Explorer turned on. Next clear a spot on your desktop big enough for two icons, preferably along the edge, where you let the important icons peek around open windows. Open a File Explorer and waddle down to that folder on one machine. Open a second File explrer and waddle down to that folder on the other machine, ready to drag the files from one machine to the other. Now look at the address bar on top of each File Explorer. At the left of the address bar you will see a tiny icon. Drag that to the prepared spot on the desktop, and rename it to for example DskTop Do the same with the File Explorer showing the laptop, and rename the shortcut LAP From now on you just hit those two icons, and File Explorers will open up already set to those specific directories, ready for you to drag the files across. If you are not scared of the raw DOS command line, and if you or anybody is interested in it, I'll show you how to make a bat, that will copy the files across whenever you click on ONE icon. Have FUN! DearWebby
The judge read the charges, then asked, "Are you the defendant in this case?" "No sir, your honor, sir," replied Jill, "I've got a lawyer to do the defendin'. I'm the person who done it."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Finding Extra Plants in Pony Packs I'm frugal, but do afford myself the "luxury" of buying the small plants for my backyard raised garden and flower beds. Today I decided to get started with the planting and stopped to by a few plants from a mom and pop's roadside stand not far from home. Upon examining the little four-packs, which they sell for $1.25, I realized that many of the packs had two or more plants growing in each of the four cups. By spending a little extra time looking, I was able to buy packs with as many as 9 plants in them rather than the 4 which are usually in the ones which come from the big box garden centers who get them from huge greenhouse operations. I saved money; I kept the profit to the merchant in our community; and I got very healthy plants that hadn't gone through several days of shipping and stocking.

Only yesterday in 1898 it was made illegal to package children up and send them by parcel-post. Seems the kids kept getting out of their boxes and playing with the mail.
