Ontario is almost finished cleaning up after the last 
Alberta Clipper, and guess what? It feels like a Chinook 
again here.

16 (60F) at 2 am is a pretty sure sign. So is the total absence
of leaves on my lawn. They have all departed, eastward bound.
The farmers, of course, are smiling now. The Chinook will ripen
and dry the grain, and blow the machienry destroying dust off
it. Together with my leaves, that should arrive in Ontario 
in about a week.

Have FUN!

Morris and Harry were both fanatics about deep sea fishing. Each would come back from fishing trips, and tell the other big lies about the number, and sizes of the fish they caught. So Morris comes back from his latest fishing trip, and tells Harry, "You wouldn't believe, but in the Bahamas I caught a 500 pound herring." Harry says, "That's nothing, last time I fished in the Bahamas, I pulled up an old lantern from a sunken Spanish ship -- and da candle was still burning!" They both looked at each other, knowing that the other was lying. Finally, Harry said to Morris, "Look Morris, if you take 499 pounds off your herring . . . I'll blow out my candle!"

Wendy was in the kitchen one day, trying to reach the baking powder on the top shelf of a cabinet. Being only five feet tall, Wendy had to stretch, but still couldn't grab the box. Fortunately, her husband was six-feet-tall so she called him to help. "Hey, James!" Wendy yelled , who was in the living room. "Will you get your tallness in here and get this for me?" "Sure, Honey," James remarked as he bounded into the kitchen. "But next time, I'd prefer the title 'Your Highness.'"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Elizabeth Ellett, 25, in Sherwood, Oregon Flashand flip to jail ALOHA, Ore. -- A woman's run from police came to end Wednesday when she was placed in handcuffs and loaded into a patrol car bound for the Washington County Jail. Elizabeth Ellett, 25, is accused of flipping off a police officer, flashing him and then driving off, forcing the officer to jump out of the way to avoid being hit, police said. Sherwood Police Captain Jim Reed said the incident began when an officer was helping a driver whose car broke down along Highway 99. The officer noticed Ellett honking and trying to get around traffic. The officer flagged Ellett to pull over, but when he attempted to talk with her, Reed said, she made the obscene gesture, flashed him with her DD's and then took off, nearly hitting him. That prompted a slow-speed chase through Washington County with Ellett driving at near posted speeds, police said. Officers laid down a spike strip in an attempt to stop the woman, but even after puncturing her front tire she continued driving to her parents home near Southwest 184th Avenue and Rigert Road in Aloha. Police said Ellett holed up inside the house and refused to come out. Neighbor Charles Vranizan said officers were using a loud speaker to try and convince the woman to give herself up. "They repeated this about every five minutes for a good 45 minutes or so," Vranizan said. "They said, 'I want to talk to you, please come out we want to make sure you're OK,' because she wasn't responding." Officers set up a perimeter, sent in a police dog and eventually arrested Ellett. She suffered minor injuries from a dog bite to her calf, but refused treatment, police said. Ellett is now in the Washington County Jail on a $85,000 bond, facing attempted assault, eluding and reckless endangering charges. Neighbors said the whole situation is strange. "You know, the world is full of interesting people; to each their own." Vranizan said, "You shouldn't be running around flashing the police." Ellet made her first court appearance Thursday and pleaded not guilty to attempted assault, eluding and unauthorized use of a weapon. Her next court appearance is set for Sept. 30.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Rosa Re: Wet keyboard Dear Webby, We had a broken pipe and water poured over the keyboard in the den in the basement all night. The computer was not turned on at the time. Is that keyboard dead and going to kill the computer, or can it be saved? Thanks Rosa Dear Rosa Exposure to water is not necessarily that bad for a keyboard, as long as it is not turned on at the time. Just remove the back cover, and let it dry out thoroughly. Spraying it inside and out with WD40 will lift any remaining moisture. WD40 is actually a fish oil and heavier than water. It sneaks in under the water and water then floats on top of it and can then evaporate. Let it dry another day after spraying it, then dab it with an old t-shirt and put it back together. When all the screws are in, clean the outside with a window cleaner. That procedure usually works even after some well meaning but not too bright soul puts a keyboard into the dishwasher. Have FUN!

One day a man called the church office. He said, "Can I speak to the head hog at the trough?" The secretary thought she heard what he said, but said, "I'm sorry, who?" The caller repeated, "Can I speak to the head hog at the trough?" She said, "Well, if you mean the preacher, then you may refer to him as 'Pastor,' or 'Brother,' but I prefer that you not refer to him as the 'head hog at the trough'!" To this the man replied, "Well, I was planning on giving $100,000 to the building fund...." To this the secretary quickly responded "Hang on, I think the big fat pig just waddled in!"

A wealthy old man looked around the table at his two sons and five daughters and their spouses gathered for a family reunion. "Not a single grandchild," he said with a sigh. "Kids, when I was busy getting us securely established, were a nuisance, but grandchildren would be a pleasure, now that I would have time for them. I'll give a million dollars to the first kid who presents me with a little one to bounce on my knee. Now, let's say grace." When the old man lifted his eyes again, his wife was the only other person at the table.
