Good Morning, ! Did the emails while dad went for breakfast, and was able to leave Las Vegas just after morning rush-hours. Gained more time yet by sneaking out via Eastern Avenue. The Hoover Dam bridge looks quite impressive now. One section still needs decking, and the side rails still have to be completed. However, it probably won't be opened for this summer traffic. The approaches on the Arizona side won't be ready. The work on the bridge progressed a lot faster than they expected. I can't show you the pictures I took, because Blonde Windoze still can't read camera chips without wanting to format the chip and destroying the pictures. Yes, I got stuck with a W7 machine for this trip, because my laptop expired two days before the trip and I had no time to get an XP laptop. No, I am not the least bit impressed with Blonde Windoze. It may be cutesy, but it is not good enough for somebody, who expects everything to work and to get some work done in a hurry. Possibly I find a patch or utility, that will let me read the camera chip, but unless I do, you will have to wait until I get to an XP machine. The highway in Arizona was smooth and fast with little traffic. Just south-east of Wikiup is the turn-off to one of my favorite roads, Highway 97 to Bagdad. I can't resist that. It is a beautifully paved roller coaster laid into the hills without moving much dirt. They just laid it out for maximum fun and paved it. I sincerely hope that they never straighten or level that road! Just past Bagdad is the big Phelps Dodge copper mine, one of the biggest in the world. Have a look at it with Google Earth: Bagdad, AZ It is huge and very colorful. A few miles northeast of the mine we had found some Buoflama cacti many years ago. They are nearly extinct, so we go check up on them and re-plant those, that have been knocked loose by animals or the February rains. They were doing fine, and one, that I had re-planted last year, had two flowers on it. After that we took Highway 96 to Prescott and got there half an hour before sunset. Sure had a lot of email waiting for me! Have FUN! DearWebby
A lady dropped her handbag in the bustle of weekend shopping. An honest, little boy noticed her drop the handbag, so he picked it up and returned it to her. The lady looked into her handbag and commented, "Hmm.... That's funny. When I lost my bag there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills." The boy quickly replied, "That's right, lady. The last time I found a purse, the owner didn't have any change for a reward."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Samuel Collins, 28, of Fort Lauderdale, FL Man tries to wash down marijuana with double cheeseburger NEW PORT RICHEY When a Pasco sheriff's deputy approached the window of Samuel Collins' Honda Del Sol about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, Collins had a baggy of marijuana in his mouth, the deputy reported. But that was just the appetizer. To swallow the baggy, Collins, 28, grabbed a double cheeseburger with both hands and began "shoving the burger into his mouth," according to the report. The deputy, who stopped Collins off U.S. 19 and State Road 54 after seeing a McDonald's bag fly out his window, yelled for Collins to spit it out. Yet Collins continued to chew and swallow, the report states, until the deputy grabbed him by his left arm and pulled him to the ground. Collins spit out the baggy and a small clear wrapper of marijuana, and the deputy found a joint on the passenger seat, the report states. Collins, who showed signs of drug and alcohol use, said he was sorry for trying to swallow the "weed" and told deputies he had a suspended license and was afraid of being arrested, the report states. Collins was charged with marijuana possession, tampering with evidence and driving without a license. Collins, a Fort Lauderdale native, paid his bond and was released from the Land O'Lakes jail Sunday. He was last arrested New Year's Day for failing to appear on a marijuana possession charge, records show.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Me re: Read SD data chips with Windows 7 I am trying to read the pictures on an SD data chip, and copy them to a Windows 7 computer, just like I have done for over a dozen years with Windows98 and XP computers. Windows 7 wants to format the SD chip and destroy the pictures. Is there a patch or utility that allows Blonde Windows to read standard SD data chips from normal cameras? ?????????

Daily tip from Starting a Garden Journal Start a vegetable garden journal now, so you can begin planning for next year. Use a notebook of any sort and notate things you think would be helpful in future planning. These are the things I'm including in mine: * Dollars spent on seeds, fertilizer, soil and such. * Names of the seeds planted, date planted, and dates of first harvest. * Cost of vegetable plants to track savings from starting from seed. At $3.50 per plant versus $1 per seed packet, I saved $96.This will motivate me to start seeds on time. * Names and types of fertilizers along with how often applied. * Number of each vegetable planted. * Map of garden so I'll remember what was planted where. * General notations about diseases, problems, what worked and what didn't. * Log the weight of the produce as it comes in to track real grocery store savings.

The teacher advised the class to start the day with the Pledge of Allegiance, and instructed them to put their right hands over their hearts and repeat after him. He looked around the room as he started the recitation, "I pledge allegiance to the flag..." When his eyes fell on Little Johnny, he noticed his hand over the right cheek of his buttocks. "Little Johnny, I will not continue till you put your hand over your heart." Little Johnny replied, "It is over my heart." After several attempts to get Little Johnny to put his hand over his heart, the teacher asked, "Why do you think that is your heart?" "Because, every time my Grandma comes to visit, she picks me up, pats me here, and says, 'Bless your little heart,' and my Grandma wouldn't lie."

Having lost weight over the past few years, a lady was discarding things from her wardrobe that no longer fit. Her seven-year-old daughter was watching as she held up a huge pair of slacks. "Wow," the lady said, "I must have worn these when I was a hundred and eighty." Her daughter looked puzzled and asked, "How old are you now?"
