Living the past is a dull and lonely business; looking back strains the neck muscles, causing you to bump into people not going your way." --- Edna Ferber I write down everything I want to remember. That way, instead of spending a lot of time trying to remember what it is I wrote down, I spend the time looking for the paper I wrote it down on. --- Beryl Pfizer
Little Tommy had been to a birthday party at a friends house. Knowing his sweet tooth Tommy's mother looked straight into his eyes and said, "I hope you didn't ask for a second piece of cake." "No," replied Tommy, "but I asked Mrs. Smith for the recipe so you could make some just as good, and she gave me two more pieces without me having to ask."
A boss tells his new employee, "I'll give you 8 bucks an hour starting today, and in three months, I'll raise it to 10 bucks an hour. So when would you like to start?" The employee replies, "How about in 3 months?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a Quandria (KWAN'-dree-ah) Bailey, 28 in Meriden, Conn Woman tried to use 911 as free taxi service NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Police in one Connecticut city have a warning for nightclub patrons: Don't call 911 for a ride home. New Haven police say that's what 28-year-old Quandria (KWAN'-dree-ah) Bailey did, calling the emergency line six times to request a ride from a nightclub back to her Meriden home. Bailey was charged with six counts of misuse of the 911 system early Sunday. She was released on a $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court May 5.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Eileen re: Mouse problems on W7 Dear Webby Your pasting mishaps in today's (Monday's) newsletter reminded me of the problems I have with mice on W7. Just about any mouse I try has some problem. For example, he MS Laser Mouse 6000 pastes (right side-button) on proximity, if I even get close to it. Probably what happened to you yesterday. On my other current mouse, an Explorer Mini Mouse, the scroll doesn't work in all programs. Yet in some it works fine. Can that be fixed, or do I have to keep buying mice until I find one that works with W7? Eileen Dear Eileen Don't use the mouse drivers, that are built into W7. Un-install those. And don't use the mouse drivers, that are on the CD, that came with the mouse. Download the current driver from Microsoft. There are still some problems, but fewer of them. Because W7 is not really meant for work but for playing and high speed gaming, W7 is set to take mouse input instantly, without requiring even a micro-second dwell to verify that you really mean to do that. Until somebody writes a fix for that, you may have better luck with a Logitech or other multi-button mouse. Have FUN! DearWebby
Mother: "Why are you home from school so early?" Son: "I was the only one who could answer a question." Mother: "Oh, really? What was the question?" Son: "Who threw the tomato at the principal?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Your Own Hamburger Patties When forming burgers, I use a hamburger press. I would then flatten the burgers with my hands to make them thinner. This way when cooked on the grill, they don't get too thick. If the burgers are formed thin, they will be almost like the fast food restaurant burgers, depending on the type of ground beef that is used. If someone likes a thicker burger, they can put two burgers on their bun. http://www.thriftyfun.com/ Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.

A redneck boy came home from class and his redneck father asked, "What did you learn in algebra class today, son?" "Well, I learned Pi R Square," replied the boy. "Now, hold on there son," he quickly replied, "you may think I am stupid, but everybody knows that pie are round."
