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

A redneck family from the hills was visiting the city and they were in a mall for the first time in their life. The father and son strolled around while the wife shopped. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but absolutely mezmerised by the two shiney, silver walls that moved apart, then slide back together again. The boy asked,"Pa, what's 'at?" The father, also never having seen an elevator responded,"Son, I dunno. I ain't never seen anything like that in all my life. I just ain't got no idea what it could be." While the boy and his father watched in amazement, an older fat lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pushed a button. The walls opened up, and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed, and the boy and his father watched the small circular numbers light up sequentially. They watched until it reached the last number, and a few seconds later the numbers lit up one by one in reverse sequence until the number 1 lit up, the walls opened up again, and this voluptuous 24 year old blonde stepped out and strolled away. The father, not being able to take his eyes of the woman leaned over and quietly said to his son,"Boy, go get your Momma!!!!!!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Amy Teresa Ricks, 37, in Salt Lake City, Utah Utah woman sentenced in 'surprise' hammer beating Apr 21, 9:28 PM (ET) SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah woman has been sentenced to 30 days at home with an ankle monitor for blindfolding her husband and promising him a surprise before hitting him in the head with a hammer three years ago. Amy Teresa Ricks also was sentenced to probation and community service Monday in 3rd District Court. The 37-year-old pleaded guilty to second-degree felony aggravated assault in February. Prosecutors have agreed to reduce the conviction to a third-degree felony after Ricks completes probation. They also agreed to let Ricks seek expungement of the crime after seven years. Ricks' husband suffered minor injuries in the May 2007 attack. At the time of her plea, Ricks' defense attorney said the two were still married but were separated.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sheelagh re: Windows 7 colors Dear Webby I am temporarily stuck with a machine that has Blonde Windows on it. Yuck! Aside from hitting everything three times because it seems as if the first two double-clicks didn't do anything, I find the few available color schemes as limited as a kindergartner's toy plastic jewelry. I did find the sneaky way to get to an XP style Appearance setting panel, and it does change the background color from freaking white to a more pleasant and productive color, in OTHER APPLICATIONS and programs, but not in Blonde internal stuff like Explorer, Control Panel, etc. Seems Blonde Windows is not compatible with itself. Good old programs like Eudora, that isn't even sold any more and outlived it's makers like the pyramids do, or Mailwasher, all change their backgrounds to what I set 7 levels deep in the Control Panel, but Blonde Windows itself refuses to budge from bright white. Do you know of a way to make the panel backgrounds less hard on the eyes? Thanks Sheelagh Dear Sheelagh Windows 7, or "Blonde Windows" as you call it, wasn't designed to be kind to it's victims. It is punishment for bitching about bugs in previous versions. As far as I know, there is no way to make the Windows 7 explorer windows act like they were Windows compliant. You will have to look for a third party file management utility. Have FUN! DearWebby

A plane was taking off from Kennedy Airport. After it reached a comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the intercom, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome to Flight Number 293, nonstop from New York to Los Angeles. The weather ahead is good and therefore we should have a smooth and uneventful flight. Now sit back and relax - OH MY GOD!" Then silence. Then, the captain came back on the intercom and said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier, but while I was talking, the flight-attendant brought me a cup of coffee and spilled the hot coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!" A passenger in Coach said, "That's nothing. He should see the back of mine!"
