I do not fear computers. I fear the lack of them. --- Isaac Asimov Democracy is the insane delusion, that more than half of the people are right more than half the time. --- Democrates Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it. ---Mark Twain
Bidding at a local auction was proceeding furiously when the auctioneer suddenly announced: "A gentleman in this room has lost a wallet containing $10,000. If it is returned, he will pay a reward of $2,000." There was a moment's silence, and then from the back of the room came the cry, "Two thousand five hundred!"
One day there was a woman who lost her cat named 'Love'. It was pretty dark outside and she lived in New York. So, thinking that he might be down the street, she put on her house-coat and went looking for him and calling his name. When a police officer stopped to ask what she was doing, she said very honestly, "I'm looking for Love." In New York that is an indictable offense and she was arrested on the spot.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Margee RE: Widespread email problem with Verizon Dear Webby, Actually, I am thinking about dropping Verizon for everything and getting my cable from Time Warner and getting one of those Magic Jack for my home phone. I noticed a few months ago they were not delivering mail to and from me, depending on the subject line. Me and a friend who also has Verizon did some tests and they are definitely censoring email. I didn't think they would do that with my long standing newsletters, though. Thank you for the information! Thanks, Margee ----------------- Dear Webby Verizon has messed with the mail for years. Their connectivity is good, but their mail is even less reliable than Yahoo. And you are 100% right about not trusting Verizon with utility bills, unless you want to get cut off suddenly. And definitely don't trust Verizon with any paid subscriptions! It just causes a lot of hostilities. Brandon ----------------- Dear Webby I wonder what that Ed, who claims, that he believes that Verizon doesn't censor mail, is smoking? They stole so much of my mail that I told them where to stuff their crappy "service". A local ISP agreed to match their rates, and he is not touching my mail. He knows, that I know where he lives, and I never had to remind him of that. Verizon turned into a bunch of overbearing do-gooders like the Government, and seem to think they have to protect the sheep from the mail, that they might get, but just like the Government, they are way too klutzy to do it right. Ann Dear Margee and Brandon and Ann and a few more who wrote later. Yes, it seems quite well known, that Verizon messes with the email. That seems to be quite common when ISPs get to Government size. Telus, here in Canada, is the same way. They frequently even censor their own OUTgoing invoices! DUH! I had to tell them this spring to send paper invoices. Luckily I send and receive my mail through Webby, but I can't do anything about their own OUTgoing email filtering. For those of you, who don't have a domain of your own, you can always use Gmail, and process it as POP with whatever email program you are familiar and comfortable with. Yes, you CAN continue using Outlook Express! All you do is change the settings for POP server name, SMTP server name, user name and password, AND you can even make it check both your Verizon (or Telus) AND your Gmail account at the same time. Have FUN! DearWebby
There was this Chinese businessman visiting a newly acquired business in the United States. As a gesture of good will, the executives of his newly acquired business took him to a golf course for a round of golf. He had never played the game before. Upon his return to China, his family asked what he had done in the United States. He replied, "Played most interesting game. Hit little white ball with long stick in large cow pasture. Name of game is "Oh @#$%."
Daily tip from Water Plants With Leftover Ice When watering indoor plants, try using ice cubes instead of water. They melt slowly, letting the soil absorb it better. This may not work for all plants, so test first. By Hope from Wilmington, NC Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

Trisha walked into the doctor's waiting room and couldn't find an empty seat anywhere. Finally, she walks over to one gentleman that was sitting down, and said, "I wonder if I might trouble you for your seat. You see, I'm pregnant." The gentleman groaned, and in obvious pain struggled to his feet and lurched across the room to lean on the the water fountain for support. As Trisha sat down, another lady in the waiting room looked her over and said, "You know, if you hadn't told me, I never would have guessed you were pregnant. How far along are you?" Looking at her watch, she replied, "Oh, about a half an hour!"

Thanks to Mark for this one: Once I took a part time job as an opinion poll sampler, calling people for their views on various issues. On my very first call, I introduced myself, "Hello, this is a telephone poll." The man replied, "Yeah, and this is a street light, and I don't talk to dumb poles without a light!"
