It is a far, far better thing to have a firm anchor in nonsense than to put out on the troubled sea of thought. --- John Kenneth Galbraith
A doctor, an engineer, a rabbi and a politician were debating who was the world's first professional. The Doctor said "It must have been a doctor. Who else could have helped with the world's first surgery of taking a rib from Adam to create Eve, the first woman? "No," said the rabbi. "It must have been a rabbi, since the Lord needed someone to help preach his message to Adam and the world. "Wait," said the engineer. "The world was created in 6 days from nothing. Do you know what a master engineering feat that must have been to create the whole world into an orgnanized and reasonably civilized place from utter chaos?" "Yes, but who created the chaos?" asked the politician...
Police was dispatched to an Ohio college campus this week to break up a fight involving two group of students, about 35 students total were involved. A group of black students saw what they thought were members of the KKK white supremacist organization parading around the campus. They took offense and proceeded to yell and throw empty bottles at them. A fight followed. It turned out that they were members of a campus theater class, that were promoting a play and were dressed as the Pope and his entourage of Cardinals. That'll teach people not to wear "evil" costumes!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Sammy Abdin, 28 of Louisville Stolen laptop found via Social Media LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41) -- Police say they recovered a stolen laptop -- and they used social media like Facebook and MySpace to do it. 28-year-old Sammy Abdin of Louisville has been arrested after police say he was in possession of a laptop -- valued at roughly $1,500 -- that had been stolen from Norton Hospital. Special computer tracking software, called LoJack Computrace, had been used to determine that someone had been using the stolen computer. Police reports say Abdin had been tracked via the software for at least two months. Police were able to get a positive ID on Abdin via images of himself that he had uploaded to social media pages, such as Facebook or MySpace. Police knocked on his door in the 9900 block of Winged Foot Drive late Monday night and told him they wanted the computer back. Adbin admitted that he had the computer and surrendered it to an officer, who was able to match the serial numbers to the missing laptop. Abdin is charged with receipt of stolen property. --------- Usually computers are tracked a lot quicker than that. They may have delayed the arrest to see if it was being passed around, or if there was an organized ring involved, and of course hoping that Sammy would spill beans about others.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Maryann RE: Best web page program for beginner? Dear Webby What is the best affordable web page creating program for beginners, who don't have a clue? Dear Maryann Stay away from programs that claim you don't need to know any HTML. Those are idiot-bait. They keep you from learning and keep you depending on that program, and effectively paint you into a corner, where you are hostage to it. Just go to the Free HTML Course in the left side menu, amd use NotPad, NoteMaid, or any free text editor. HTML is actually very simple and easy. Learn the basics with that free course and just start goofing around. Once you are comfortable with the basics and know the vocabulary, then you can use any program to do the same thing faster. Then you know what can be done and what it is called. Eventually you should aim for a comprehensive web design program like DreamWeaver. If you have too much money, get the current version. If you are smart, check eBay for older versions, that somebody tried without first learning the basics. If you don't know the basics, that program is totally overwhelming, and totally useless. So people sell it cheap. Just like with Chevys, or like with Paint Shop Pro, certain older versions are actually better than the current model. For example, I can, and have used 4, 6, 8, 10, CS3, and CS5, but when I have a choice, I use DreamWeaver 6. DreamWewaver CS5 is $400, but I have frequently seen version 6 on eBay for $20. DreamWeaver is pretty well the standard for professionals, because it is really easy to maintain and update hundreds of different sites with it. For you that means there is lots of knowledgeable help around all over the place, which you wouldn't get with an odd-ball fad program. Have FUN! DearWebby
A man walks up the counter and says, "I'll have 2 pounds of Tofu." The man at the counter says, "Oh, you must be from California." The man responds, "How stereotypical! If I had ordered Pepperoni would you think I was Italian?" "No." answers the man at the counter. And besides, pepperoni is more Sicilian than Italian. "If I had ordered Wienerschnitzel would you have thought I was German," he asks. "No." says the man behind the counter, "and besides, Wiener Schnitzel are from Wien, the capital of Austria." "Then why," he asks, "would you think I was from California, just because I want 2 pounds of tofu ???" The man looks up from the counter and says, "'Cause you're in a hardware store."
Daily tip from Make a Pillow Out of a Favorite T-Shirt Recycling that favorite t-shirt. Do you have a t-shirt you just can't seem to give up but it has some stains or tears? Well, make it into a pillow. First cut the design or pattern from the front of the shirt into a square, then sew material that coordinates with shirt, around the center.

When a mother saw a thunderstorm forming in mid- afternoon, she worried about her five-year-old daughter who would be walking the three blocks from kindergartenl to home. Deciding to meet her, the mother saw her walking nonchalantly along, stopping to smile whenever lightning flashed. Seeing her mother, the little girl ran to her, explaining happily, "All the way home, God's been taking my picture!"
