Thanks tp Roland for this story: Being the office supervisor, I had to have a word with a new employee who never arrived at work on time. I explained that her tardiness was unacceptable and that other employees had noticed that she was walking in late every day. After listening to my complaints, she agreed that this was a problem and even offered a solution. "Is there another door I could use?"
The happy couple were being interviewed on their Golden Wedding Anniversary. The society reporter asked, "In all that time, did you ever consider a divorce?" "Oh, no, not divorce, we're too old fashioned for that," the husband replied. "Murder quite frequently," the wife offered "but never divorce."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Michael Mowry, 33, and Jethra Guzman, 32. Monitoring bracelets aid Berwick police in identifying two burglars BERWICK, Maine Electronic monitoring bracelets helped police identify two people responsible for four residential burglaries in January. Arrests warrants have been drafted for the two suspects, but they have yet to be arrested because they are in custody in New Hampshire for unrelated crimes. The burglaries happened in mid-January on Cemetery Road, Pine Hill Road, Little River Road and Blackberry Road. Cash, jewelry and electronics were all stolen from the homes. Capt. Jerry Locke said the big break in the case came at the last burglary on Jan. 31, at the Blackberry Road residence. A witness took down the plate number of the vehicle the two suspects were in and police in Somersworth were able to stop them. Police identified the pair as Michael Mowry, 33, last known address of 1 Thomas St., Rochester and Jethra Guzman, 32, last know address of 5 Woodside Commons Park, Somersworth. Upon further investigation, police learned that both suspects were on electronic monitoring because of pending drug-related cases out of New Hampshire. Locke said police were able to look at the records of the monitoring devices and track the two to the other burglary locations on the days they occurred. Mowry is currently incarcerated in the New Hampshire State Prison in Concord for his drug-related charges, while Guzman is being held at the Strafford County jail. Both will be facing burglary charges when police get a chance to arrest them. Burglary is a Class B crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Locke said the pair may also be involved in other burglaries in the area as well, but noted those burglaries are still under investigation.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Fast Eddie re: Use an old TV as a monitor Hey Mr Webby; Got a question for you! I want to watch a video from my PC to my TV. Now is it better to to get another video card to watch TV or get a "VGA Splitter?" And the cords? What will I need? I have thee old TV, in which does not have the updated hook ups. Though I have a DVD Player that may have what I need to get connected. Thanks & have a great day/week. Eddie Dear Eddie You would need a video card that has TV output and the same kinds of sockets in the back as you got on a VCR. Then you plug the TV into those sockets instead of the VCR. Keep in mind that the video on an old TV is VERY crappy compared to even a very old computer monitor. You can get perfectly good 20" 1600 x 1200 monitors for as little as $115 at http://www.nextag.com/1600x1200-monitor/products-html I doubt that you can get a video card with VCR output for that price. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Carry Insulated Shopping Bag in Your Car Frugal and Green! Purchase one of those heavy duty insulated shopping bags and keep it in your car for when you're grocery shopping, especially here in the South, and in the summer. You will be surprised at how beneficial it will be and how often you'll be glad you have it handy. They are very inexpensive, fold flat, take up little storage space in your car when not in use and open to a generous size bag. I bought mine at Sam's Club, but they are available elsewhere.

Nancy, a city girl, married a farmer. One morning, before the farmer went out to the field, he said, "Honey, today the artificial insemination man is coming over to impregnate one of the cows. I put a nail in a two-by-four over the stall. Please show him which one it it is." When he arrived, Nancy led him down the row of stalls until she saw the nail. She pointed to the stall and he asked her, "Are you sure?" "It's the one with the nail," said Nancy. "What's the nail for?" asked the man. "I guess it's to hang your pants on," replied Nancy.
