Good Morning,  !
It's Saturday, October 23, 2010
I was surprised at the feedback on my articles on spreadsheets.
It seems a lot of people, even though they had been on computers
for many years and were quite comfortable with Yahoo and 
FaceBook, had never been introduced to spreadsheets. 
Now, after playing with them for five minutes, it was as if they 
had received the key to the toy store.

Trixie wrote that after she showed my formula for the Thank-You 
letters to her boss, he dumped the $600 program, that they
had cussed at for years, that was supposed to accomplish the 
same as my formula does, but was not quite flexible enough. 
Now she plays with spreadsheets instead of Farmville. 

Have FUN!

Two men from Arkansas are Walking along Sam Houston Street they see a sign which reads, " Suits $5.00 each, Shirts $2.00 each, Trousers $2.50 per pair" Bubba says to his pal, Josh: "LOOK! We could buy a whole lot of those, and when we get back home we could make a fortune. Now when we go into the shop, you be quiet, okay? Just let me do all the talking 'cause if they hear our accent, they might not serve us. I'll speak in my best Texas drawl." They go in and Bubba orders 50 suits at 5.00 each, 100 shirts at 2.00 each and 50 pairs of trousers at 2.50 each. "I'll back up my pickup and.... The owner of the shop interrupts, "You're from Arkansas, aren't you?" "Oh, yes," says a surprised Bubba. "How come you know that?" The owner says, "This is a dry-cleaners business."
The Indians asked their Chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or not. Not really knowing the answer, the chief replied that the winter will be cold and that the members of the village should collect wood to be prepared. Being a good leader, he then drove to town, called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is this winter to be cold?" The man on the phone responded, "This winter is indeed going to be very cold." So the Chief went back to encourage his people to collect even more wood to be prepared. A week later he called the National Weather Service again, and asked again, "Is it going to be a very cold winter?" "Yes," the man replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter." The Chief went back to his people and ordered them to go out and bring back every scrap of wood they could find. Two weeks later he called the National Weather Service again. "Are you absolutely sure that this winter is going to be very cold?" "Absolutely" the man replies, "the Indians are collecting wood like crazy!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Elizabeth Moreau, 27, ESPN Gullible reporter pranked OCTOBER 21--In a move straight out of the Pranknet playbook, an ESPN reporter early this morning was convinced by an unknown caller to her hotel to break out her room's windows because the building was purportedly on fire. According to a Gainesville Police Department report, ESPNU reporter Elizabeth Moreau was in her room at a Hilton Garden Inn when a male caller advised “that the hotel was on fire.” The man first directed Moreau, 27, to “lay towels down at the bottom of her front door to prevent smoke from entering her room.” The caller then directed Moreau to use the toilet tank lid to break out the window. “She then went to the window and used it to break out the window. The window was broken and the toilet lid broke upon falling to the ground outside,” police reported. It is unknown who was responsible for today’s hoax, which cops have classified a "suspicious incident." Moreau, in Gainesville to cover a women’s volleyball match between the University of Florida and the University of Tennessee, told cops that the caller then advised “that’s what she gets for being bad at ‘sucking di**.’” According to ESPN, at this point, Moreau, pictured above, realized she had been pranked, because she knew, that was not true.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Goldie Re: Pictures not showing I had to get a new computer and it has Windows 7. Since then the pics on your site are not opening. MS said I would have to set up each site for the pic to come thru. Can you help Dear Goldie As usual, MS support doesn't know what they are BSing about. Windows 7 is kinda klutzy, as you probably noticed, but it does work! Just go into your Gmail settings and turn the pictures on. Usually it is the 4th item in the settings: Look for a line marked "External Content" Have FUN! DearWebby

A man walked into a pet shop, pointed to a large dog in a kennel and said, "How much do you want for that big dog?" "Fifty dollars," replied the clerk. "And how much for that small fella there?" asked the customer. "One hundred dollars," answered the clerk. "And for that tiny one?" "Two hundred dollars," said the clerk. The customer looked puzzled for a moment and then said, "Well, how much will it cost me if I don't buy a dog at all?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Laminate and Use Keepsake Maps I invested in a laminating machine from the office store a few years ago for some craft projects, and really got carried away. I had scads of road maps (available for free from each state's tourism office). I cut these to fit my kitchen drawers, laminated them, and slid them in. They can be wiped free of crumbs and spills, and are fun drawer-liners. Then I laminated some brochures from our favorite RV parks, and use them as placemats at rest stops. For the motorhome, I laminated one entire map to use as a giant placemat to cover the whole dining table - it can be rolled up, held together with a rubber band and stored away in the RV. And all of these nice things were free, except the cost of the lamination.

Overheard in the bank today: A few ladies were discussing the newsreport about the hormone pills for women in or after menopause claiming that the hormones could lead to 8 more heart attacks in 10 000 people. Most figured that 8 in 10 000 was so small a number that it was probably due to some fluke ot error, and only one of them seemed inclined to consider giving up the estrogen pills. Then the old country doctor, who had just come in, interrupted in her usual gruff and surly manner. She said: "8 in 10 000 is silly! If 10 000 stop using the hormone pills, you'll see 8000 divorces and 800 murders! 8 Heart attacks I can deal with nowadays, but not 10 000 grouchy dingbats!" Everybody cracked up laughing, especially because she has a reputation for being quite a grouch.
