The bottom most leaves on the raspberry bushes took a hit 
of frost last night. But the plants are healthy and look like
they will have a good crop of berries next year. 

Have FUN!

We are all inclined to judge ourselves by our ideals; others by their acts. --- Harold Nicholson When the ax entered the forest, the trees said, 'The handle is one of us!' --- Turkish proverb
A travelling salesman finds himself stranded in the tiniest town in Australia. He knocks on the door of a little hotel. "Sorry, we don't have a spare room," says the manager, "but you're welcome to share with a little red-headed schoolteacher, if that's okay." "Oh, that'll be great," says the bloke, grinning from ear to ear."And don't worry, I'll be a real gentleman." "Just as well," says the manager. "So will the little red-headed schoolteacher."
Psychology was tried on a difficult hiccough case. All simple remedies had failed and the physician, knowing that his patient was an old tightwad, resorted to a stratagem. He administered a new, cheap medicine. This drew from the patient an inquiry as to its contents. "Chiefly musk," said the doctor. "But isn't that the expensive stuff they use in perfumes?" "Yes," said the doctor. "Each dose of this costs thirty dollars." The hiccoughs immediately stopped.

There was an elderly southern widow who lived in a large mansion. She was feeling generous when it came towards the holiday, so she called up the local military base, and asked to speak with the lieutenant. "Please send up four nice young men to eat dinner here on the holiday, but please, don't send any Jews. Please, no Jews." The lieutenant replied, "No problem ma'am, and I am sure I speak for the army when I say we all appreciate your kindness." Well, the holiday rolled around, and the widow went to answer the door when it rang. She was surprised to see four of the blackest boys that anyone had ever seen, especially in the South. "But... But... There must be some mistake," she stammered. One of them replied, "No ma'am, lieutenant Morris Goldstein doesn't make mistakes."

The 46-year-old was arrested and the teen-ager was released to another adult at the scene, police said. Two hours later, the same child’s father, a 45-year-old Hopewell Junction resident, drove through the checkpoint and was observed to be intoxicated, police said.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Hank Re: Learn about laptops Dear Webby, I purchased a used Toshiba Laptop. There was no owners manual. Is there a website where I can Learn to operate this new toy? I have never had a laptop so I know nothing about one. Thanks for your help, hank Dear Hank It's just a computer, that is portable and that will run for a while on a battery. There are a few extra settings in the Power Options in the control panel. Other than that, everything acts the same as on a desktop computer. The battery will gradually deteriorate and hold shorter and shorter periods and usually needs top be replaced every 2-3 years. You usually get a few extra months out of a battery, if you let it drain down to nothing once in a while. Make absolutely sure that you never forget the battery charger and cord anywhere! If you try a generic charger, you will fry the on-board power supply, and will need a new motherboard. That would cost you twice as much as a new laptop. There is something on Toshibas that suicides, if it detects a generic charger. You CAN get third party Toshiba chargers for Toshiba laptops. Those are cheap, and won't fry the motherboard. But it has to be one specifically made for that model Toshiba. It's a good idea to have one of those sitting at home, so that it can be FedExed to you, if you forget yours in a hotel. They disappear instantly and hopes of getting them back even an hour after you check out, are zero. That's about it. Whatever works on your desktop, will also work on the laptop. Have FUN! DearWebby
A patient, while recovering in the hospital from a heart attack, met this over-zealous evangelist. After listening politely for a over a half hour on how thankful he should be to have been spared, and how he should repent at once, he asked if all of his sins had flashed before his eyes during the heart attack. The patient responded, "Don't be ridiculous, the attack had only lasted 6 hours."

A well worn dollar bill and a similarly distressed twenty arrived at the bureau of Engraving and Printing to be retired. As they moved along the conveyor belt to the shredder they struck up a conversation. The twenty reminisced about its travels all over the country. "I've had a pretty good life." the twenty proclaimed. "I've been to Las Vegas and Atlantic City, the finest restaurants in New York, performances on Broadway, and even a cruise from Miami." "Wow!" said the single, "you really have gotten around." "So tell me", says the twenty, "where have you been throughout your lifetime?" "Oh, I've been to the Methodist Church, the Baptist Church, the Presbyterian Church, the Lutheran Church, the Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church, Assembly of God Church, the Brethren Church, the United Church of Christ, ...." And the twenty says, "What's a church?"
