Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

Accomplishing the impossible means only that the boss will add it to your regular duties. --- Doug Larson I have often depended on the blindness of strangers. --- Adrienne E. Gusoff
Thanks to Dianne for this story: one time Dad was driving Mom's Pinto, I was in the passenger's seat and Eric, 5 at the time, was standing between my legs, watching out the windshield. We were traveling thru one of those old iron bridges. The ones with a wooden floor, cross wises, and raised ones for the wheels to ride on, length wise. The Pinto slipped off the boards, did a 180, and we rolled out the other end of the bridge, facing the wrong direction. Did not make contact with the bridge. Eric, between my legs, is jumping up and down, yelling, "Do it again!"

Thanks to Sandie for this story: On a long drive from Virginia, I thought I was traveling at a reasonable speed, but the flashing blue lights in my rear view mirror made me realize that I'd been over the limit. I handed the officer my license and made small talk while my wife dug through the glove compartment for the registration. "I'm usually very careful about my speed," I told him as my wife handed me the paperwork. The officer studied it and then gave it back. "Sir," he said gruffly, "this is not your registration." It was a warning ticket I had received for speeding in South Carolina.

A man was chosen for jury duty who very much wanted to be dismissed from serving. He was trying every excuse in the world, trying to get out of it but none of them worked. On the day of the trial he decided to give it one more shot. As the trial was about to begin he asked if he could approach the bench. "Your Honor," he said, " I must be excused from this trial because I am prejudiced against the defendant. I took one look at the man in the Grey suit with those shifty eyes and that dishonest face and I said, "He's a crook! He's guilty, guilty, guilty." So your Honor, I could not possibly stay on this jury!" With a tired annoyance the judge replied, "Get back in the jury box. That's his lawyer."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD and goes to Debra Langham, 51 in Lindale, Texas Wrong Number Connects Drug Seller With Police It turned out to be the wrong number the 51-year-old Lindale woman was texting looking for a buyer for her marijuana. Instead of making a drug deal, she was arrested by the Smith County Sheriff’s undercover narcotics team, who she unknowingly had been texting. Debra Langham was arrested Tuesday and charged with felony possession of marijuana after she set up a deal to meet ‘the buyer” at a location on West Gentry Parkway. Lt. Tony Dana said Ms. Langham began texting an employee of the sheriff’s office a couple of weeks ago about a possible marijuana buy. “At the time our narcotics team was really busy and we just couldn’t get to it, but she started texting again Monday and the officers got involved and played along with the texts,” he said. Dana said Ms. Langham told the deputies what kind of vehicle she would be driving and where to meet her and at what time. “The narcotics officers sat in a position where they could see her if she did show up and when she did they waited until she left the parking lot to have a marked unit conduct a traffic stop,” he said. What deputies found inside the car was half a pound of marijuana, valued at $400. Dana said Ms. Langham was charged and taken to the Smith County Jail where she was later released on a $5,000 bond. “This all happened because apparently she put in the wrong number to text when this all began several weeks ago,” he said.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Mark Re: How difficult are those online back-ups? Dear Webby How difficult are those online back-ups? And how expensive are they? Do all of them suddenly get outrageous if you accidentally go over some limit? And, how expensive is a reasonable one? Thanks Mark Dear Mark The one I recommend is Mozy. Lucille, a friend and client from http://couple-or-not.com installed Mozy just using her text to speech reader. She can't see. Then half a year later she switched ISPs and got a new address. At about the same time, her compter died and she needed a new one. With any program except Mozy, that would have spelled total disaster. Think about it! How do you identify yourself and get YOUR back-up, if you have a different address? I sent a quick note to James, the CEO of Mozy, and he himself called Lucille and talked her step by step over the phone through getting re-connected with her back-up. Your second question about limits: With Mozy you get 2 GB free, or unlimited space for $4.95 a month, with a month free if you pay for a year. If you get a year's worth before the end of August through my link at http://webby.com/mozy, then I can get you an additional 10% discount. If you go directly to http://mozy.com, you won't get that discount. Just tell me before you sign up, and I will give you the discount code for that day. Once you are signed up for the unlimited, you too can apply to become an affiliate and get discounts for YOUR friends. If you use the free 2 GB limited version, you don't get suddenly charged if you go over that limit. You simply hit a wall and can't go over that. With the unlimited version, of course, there is no limit at all to worry about. However, if you are backing up 4 TeraBytes of pictures and music, your local ISP might get unhappy about that, plus a big upload like that with automatic updating, will probably slow down your computer, whenever it is doing the scheduled updating of the back-up. Most people can fit their important and irreplaceable stuff into about 5 - 10 GB. That normally updates during your lunch time. Have FUN! DearWebby
When a physician remarked on a new patient's extraordinarily ruddy complexion, he said, "High blood pressure, Doc. It comes from my family." "Your mother's side or your father's?" the doctor asked. "Neither," he replied. "It's from my wife's family." "Oh, come now," said the doctor, "How could your wife's family give you high blood pressure?" He sighed. "You oughta meet 'em sometime, Doc!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Reuse Plastic Cupcake Trays to Start Seeds Use cupcake trays from the grocery store bakery for mini greenhouse to start plant seeds in. Each cake compartment holds a peat seed starter pot nicely. All you need to do is use a soldering iron to melt some drainage holes and a couple vent holes on top. Use peat seed starter pots in each cake compartment. When plants get bigger just remove the peat pots and reuse your cupcake greenhouse over and over. By Kim from KS http://www.thriftyfun.com/ Be generous with the vent holes! Best is one horizontal row of holes near the bottom on one side of the bottom tray to pull air in, and a vertical row of holes or slots on the opposite side, in the cover only. Make a triangle from cardboard or clear plastic and a scotch tape sleeve to hold it. Dull the scotch tape where it touches the triangle, so that you can move the triangle to adjust the temperature. If the top holes are covered and only the lower holes open, it gets a lot hotter inside. With the bottom holes covered and the top holes open, it won't overheat. That method is a lot safer than propping the lid up, and risk having the wind catch it and toss it all over the balcony. Have FUN!

A man entered a barbershop and said, "I am tired of looking like everyone else. I want a change. Part my hair from ear to ear!" The barber nodded and said, "Are you sure?" His customer said, "yes," so the barber did as he was told, and the satisfied gentleman left the shop a happy man. Three hours passed and the man reentered the barber shop. "Put it back the way it was," hesaid. "What's the matter?" said the barber. "Are you tired of being a non-conformist already?" "No," the customer replied, "I'm tired of people whispering at my nose."
