A lot of people asked what that red icon, that I put on top on Fridays, is about. Well, first let me make it VERY clear, that it is NOT political. It has nothing to do with Bush deciding to fight the terrorists on THEIR home turf instead of on yours, and it has nothing to do with Obama being against that and ordering the troops to use "courageous restraint" and to turn the other cheek. That icon is to remind us to show gratitude to the troops, who risk their lives to do whatever they are told, to protect us and our freedom. Not a gesture to politicians, just a simple and quick gesture to show gratitude to the troops. You can read more about it at

Thanks to Dianne for sending this story: My wife has not spoken to me in three days. I think it has something to do with what happened on Sunday night when she thought she heard a noise downstairs. She nudged me and whispered, "Wake up, wake up!" "What's the matter"? I asked. "There are burglars in the kitchen. I think they're eating the tuna casserole I made tonight." "That'll teach them!" I replied.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD and goes to George Horn, 48, in Ft Lauderdale, Florida Burglar used cross to pry open church poor boxes JULY 20--A Florida man who used a crucifix to break into a donation box at a Catholic church in Fort Lauderdale was charged today with burglary in connection with the heist last month. George Horn, 48, allegedly broke a window to gain access to St. John's Catholic Church on June 26. While inside, he took a crucifix from the altar and used it as a pry bar to open the donation box under a stand filled with devotional candles. Horn--crucifix in hand--was caught on video by a church surveillance camera. Along with rifling the candle box, Horn also broke into two church poor boxes, according to a Fort Lauderdale Police Department report. He was charged after police completed a probe that included the recovery of DNA evidence from the crime scene, which included a large amount of blood left behind by the burglar. Horn is being held in the Broward County jail on the felony count.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Laura Re: Showing pictures in Gmail HI, I just started getting your newsletter again. Not sure why I wasn't. Anyway, in the meantime I have switched over to gmail. I have my sympatico email redirected to my gmail. None of the graphics are working in Gmail. Is there a setting I need to change to get them? Thanks Laura Dear Laura The browser "peeker" for Gmail can be configured to show pictures, but it is just designed for quick and fast peeking from a slow connection, away from your own computer. That is why the default is set to not show anything, that would slow you down. The best way to handle it is to a) make a filter that tells Gmail to never trash or spam mail from, even if I talk about viruses or spam. b) Set Gmail to POP c) Set up your favorite email program (Eudora, ThunderBird, Outlook, Outlook Express, whatever) to check laura***** On those occasions, when you DO want images to show, while you are just quickly peeking with the browser, just click on the SHOW IMAGES link at the top of the email where you want to see the pictures. It won't change the quick peeker into a full-featured email program, it will just change the setting for that one email. Just keep in mind that the browser based peeker was designed to quickly check your email while standing at the contractor's counter at the Home Depot and using the courtesy computer there. It is fast, nothing gets downloaded into that machine, and all your email stays on the server, so that you can pull it down with Eudora or Outlook or whatever, when you get home. Have FUN! DearWebby
A business executive who had retired last year was discussing the joys of his new leisure time. He remarked that he had been compelled to give up skiing, a sport he had enjoyed for many years. "Afraid of injuries?" I asked. "Well, now I am," he responded. "Before I could drag a cast into work and still do my job, but now I'd be messing up my golf game."
Daily tip from Store Cords in Toilet Paper Rolls Organizing electrical extension cords when not in use. Save empty TP rolls. Fold your cords in lengths of 8 inches and insert each one in an empty TP roll. Write on the outside of the roll with a permanent marker the length of the extension cord inside of the roll. These will stack neatly in a small plastic basket and you know what size of cord you are getting each time.

A boss in California, to four of his employees: "I'm really sorry, but I'm going to have to let at least one of you go and I need you to supply me with a usable solution immediately." Female Employee: "I'm a woman." Black Employee: "I'm a protected minority." Oldest Employee: "Fire me, buster, and I'll hit you with an age discrimination suit so fast it'll make your head spin." ...To which they all turn to look at the helpless young, white, male employee, who thinks a moment, then responds: "I think I might be gay..." So, without discriminating against any politically protected group, he fired all four of them for "failure to perform assigned duties, like supplying him with a usable solution".

A husband and wife were driving down a country lane on their way to visit some friends. They came to a big, muddy hole in the road and the car became bogged. After a few minutes of trying to get the car out by themselves, they saw a young farmer coming down the lane, driving some oxen before him. The farmer stopped when he saw the couple in trouble and offered to pull the car out of the mud for $50. The husband accepted and minutes later the car was free. The farmer turned to the husband and said, "You know, you're the tenth car I've helped out of the mud today." The husband looks around at the fields incredulously and asks the farmer, "When do you have time to plough your land? You must do it at night." "No," the young farmer replied seriously, "Night is when I put the water in the hole."
