Good Morning, ! Today we backtracked on our route to look at some features in more detail. Across from the Hotel here is the Escalante Gallery, where there isn't just beautiful artwork displayed and sold, but also Tracy and Jan, the proprietors, who have an XP computer! Jan copied the pictures from one camera chip onto a DVD for me, and I finally got to see what kinds of pictures this camera takes. My good ol Canon IS-2S didn't survive the airport security, or maybe the flight, and I wound up having to buy a cheap replacement on the way out of Las Vegas. While Jan did the copying, Tracy told me about interesting places in the area, and even drew me a map. He even told me about some ancient rock drawings near the bridge about 13 miles back and even showed me some pictures he took. It didn't take us long to get to that bridge, and by sheer coincidence a couple of very athletic, young rock climbers happened to be there, preparing to climb up to where the petroglyphs are. So I followed them, and found out rather quickly that my climbing skills and condition had deteriorated somewhat in the 40 years difference in our ages. One of the friendly fellows even gave me a helping hand on a challenging spot, but after that I lagged behind. I made it up about 300 feet above the road and saw the small set of petroglyphs, but started to seriously overheat. So I turned back, and made it safely back to the road just a minute before they got back too. They had gon on to a second set, but according to them, I didn't really miss anything. On the way down I had found some very pretty triglochitaus cacti with fire red blossoms, and took a bunch of pictures of them. On the road up from the canyon bottom I decided to take a picture for an overview showing the terrain where that type of cactus lives. From there nI saw that there nwould have been a much easier and a lot less strenuous route up that cliff. Next time. After that we checked out some sights on the "Hole In The Rock" area and found quite a few more cacti to take pictures of. Wednesday, as you read this, we will be traveling to Bryce Canyon, Panguitch Lake, Brian Head, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Carmel, Zion Park, and Hurricane. I got another 2 Gb camera chip and spare batteries ready in the car. Have FUN! DearWebby

Several months after a young man is hired, he is called into the personnel director's office. "What is the meaning of this?" the director asks. "When you applied for this job, you told us you had five years of experience. Now we discovered this is the first job you've ever held." "Well," the young man replies, "in your advertisement you said you wanted somebody with imagination, and since it was your accounting department who found out, and not my foreman, I would say that was good enough."
Two highway patrolmen stop a driver for speeding on the state highway in Waxahachie, Texas. As they are writing up the ticket, one trooper turns to the other and asks, "How do you spell Waxahachie?" The other one replies, "I don't know." "What are we going to do?" the first one asks. "If we spell it wrong, the judge will dismiss the charge." "Well," says his partner, "why don't we just let him go and stop him again when he gets to Waco?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a Bonehead in Calgary, Alberta. Sent in by Dianne: Man takes dangerous CTrain ride Calgary Transit is investigating after a dangerous stunt on a moving CTrain. CTrain is Calgary's Light Rapid Transit train. Ctrains are operated by remote control, mostly by computer. There is no staff on board the trains or at the stations. A man was caught on video, by a CTV Calgary viewer, riding on the coupling between two CTrain cars. The video was taken last Thursday and shows the man riding outside the train over the Bow River. At one point he pulls out a bottle of booze and gives fellow passengers the finger. Laura Bevelander took the video and says she called for help using the LRT help box, as well as dialing 911. Calgary transit says it received her messages and dispatched police. The man hopped off the train at the next station and stood on the platform. By the time officers got to the station the man was no longer there. Officers are still trying to track him down. According to Calgary bylaws, the man could be charged with a penalty of up to $2,000. Calgary Transit officials say they will be meeting with police on Wednesday and will forward the case onto them. If the man is found, he could face criminal mischief charges which come with a penalty of six-months in prison and/or a $2,000 fine.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Jaye re: File Association problem Dear Webby Windows has the following information about this file type. This page will help you find software needed to open your file. File Type: Unknown Description: Windows does not recognize this file type. UT-12Tour. Now what?": Jaye Dear Jaye first download Google Earth from and install it. Then, when Windows plays stupid, and acts like it does not know what to do with a kmz file, hit the browse button on that screen and select Google Earth, and tell it to always use that program for that type of file. KMZ files have been around for a long time, but Windows acts like they are something new. By the way, it would be a very good idea, if you went into the File Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, View, and put a checkmark on showing file extensions at all times. Have FUN! DearWebby
Two young men are speculating on how long they might live, and one says he thinks he has a long life ahead of him. "After all," he says, "my grandfather lived to be 96." "Ninety-six? What finally got him?" the other man asks. "Liquor and women." "Well, that just goes to show you," snickers the friend, "both will get you in the end." "Well actually, no, it's not what you think," says the first man. "Toward the end, Grandpa couldn't get either one, so he just laid down and died."
Daily tip from Label Reusable Containers With Dry Erase Markers I buy most of my dry goods in bulk and store them in the pantry in re-used glass or plastic containers. Rather than labeling the containers with tape which sometimes leaves the sticky residue, I use erasable markers (vis-a-vis), the kind that wipe off with water. We use the same markers on the wipe-off calendar to keep up with the family schedule. I write on the side of the container what it is, and the basic directions, and the date. Several items appear the same, and the kids can easily tell the difference now between flour and pancake mix. The marker will smudge if handled with wet hands, but when that happens I just re-write it. By jwheeler from Stockton, IA Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

Late one night in Washington, a mugger wearing a ski mask jumped into the path of a well-dressed man and stuck a gun in his ribs. "Give me your money!" he demanded. Indignant, the affluent man replied, "You can't do this. I'm a United States Congressman!" "In that case," replied the robber, "give me MY money!"

"Mr. Clark, I'm afraid I have bad news," the doctor told his anxious patient. "You only have six months to live." The man sat in stunned silence for the next several minutes. Regaining his composure, he apologetically told his physician that he had no medical insurance. "I can't possibly pay you in that time." "Okay," the doctor said, "let's make it nine months."
