Don't worry about people stealing an idea. If it's original, you will have to ram it down their throats. --- Howard Aiken The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phrase; if you pursue happiness you'll never find it. --- C. P. Snow
A young woman was preparing a ham dinner. After she cut off the end of the ham, she placed it in a pan for baking. Her friend asked her,"Why did you cut off the end of the ham"? And she replied ,"I really don't know but my mother always did, so I thought you were supposed to." Later when talking to her mother she asked her why she cut off the end of the ham before baking it, and her mother replied,"I really don't know, but that's the way my mom always did it." A few weeks later while visiting her grandmother, the young woman asked, "Grandma, why is it that you cut off the end of a ham before you bake it?" Her grandmother replied ,"Well dear, otherwise it would never fit into my baking pan."
Little Johnny was rough housing with his dog. His mother said to him, "Now, Johnny, I know you love Wilbur, but you're loving him too much. How would you feel if someone huge picked you up and squeezed you so hard you couldn't breathe?" Little Johnny thought a moment and then said, "I guess I'd feel like it was my birthday and Aunt Agnes was here to squeeze the cake out of me!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Alexa Gonzalez in New York City US girl sues for $1m over arrest for desk scribble Alexa Gonzalez was led out of her school in handcuffs by police A 12-year-old US schoolgirl is suing the New York City authorities for $1m (650,000) in damages after she was arrested for writing on her desk. Alexa Gonzalez was led out of her school in handcuffs by police after she was caught scribbling a message to her friends with an erasable, green marker. Miss Gonzalez and her mother are suing the police and education departments in New York City. They are claiming for excessive use of force and violation of her rights. Miss Gonzalez was caught scribbling "I love my friends Abby and Faith" on her desk during a Spanish class in February. The 12-year-old said her Spanish teacher then "dragged" her to the dean's office, where eventually police had to be called to deal with her. Miss Gonzalez told the New York Daily News she broke down as she was led out of Junior High School 190 in Queens in handcuffs. She said she was then held at a local school precinct for hours in what she calls a traumatising and excessive ordeal. New York City officials, considering that the schools and police have too much money, chose not to back them up and announced the arrest was a mistake, saying better judgement should have been used by the arresting officers. Miss Gonzalez was suspended from school and tried in a family court, where she was given eight hours of community service and ordered to write an essay about lessons to be learned from the incident. Her family's lawyer said the school had overreacted by calling the police. He of course did not mention any difficulties the dean's office had in dealing with her. "We want to stop this from happening to other young children in the future," the lawyer, Joseph Rosenthal, told the New York Daily News. Even if the schools and the police get off, the public admission of a mistake, instead of an internal action, will cost the city a lot of lawyer bills.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Andy Re: LCD monitors Dear Webby While shopping for an LCD monitor I noticed that some of them have a soft and flexible surface and others have a hard glass surface. Which are better? Andy Dear Andy The hard glass surface monitors are a class better than the ones with the soft plastic surface. The glass does not scratch and is not fussy about how you clean it. The soft plastic does not protect the fragile glass behind it, it just glosses over the coarse resolution of a cheap monitor. It gives you, at first glance, the impression that you got a reasonably high resolution, but when you look closer you see that fine details are mushy. Glass front monitors are usually more expensive, but provide a class better resolution. For example, on the Lenovo LP201p, that I use, writing that can be covered up with a wooden match, is perfectly legible, sharp and without jaggies, and it has the 1600 x 1200 resolution, that I need. yes, you CAN get 1600 x 1200 LCDs with proper 4:3 ratio, but not at Walmart or other bargain places. Even though good monitors costs more than bargain monitors, they still cost less than eye glasses. Have FUN! DearWebby
I find it strange that all those psychics claim they know my future and the winning lottery numbers, yet they fail miserably in predicting that I dump their mail without reading it.
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Grate Orange Rind Before Eating Before I eat an orange, or use the juice of a lemon, I always grate the rind off, and keep frozen in a container. Then when a recipe calls for either, I always have some zest on hand. Handy to have to whip up a special salad dressing, too! By Pergammano from Galiano, B.C.

A young minister, in the first days of his first parish, was obliged to call upon the widow of an eccentric man who had just died. Standing before the open casket and consoling the widow, he said, "I know this must be a very hard blow, Mrs. Jones. But we must remember that what we see here is the husk only, the shell -- the nut has gone to heaven."
