All the comments and feedback on yesterday's article about
PayPal were positive. When I wrote a similar article about 
five or six years ago, there were all kinds of horror stories
attributed to what rumors friends had heard. There was not
one single one of those scaremongering third party rumors
this time.

Has the scaremongering by the Gulible Warming hucksters
made people more critical of unsubstantiated rumors?
Good!

Have FUN!

How do you tell the difference between the psychologists and the patients in a psychiatric hospital? Short term: The psychologists show off expensive footwear. Long term: The patients get better and leave.
A business traveller was passing through a small town when he came upon a huge funeral procession. "Who died?" he asked a nearby local. "I'm not sure," replied the local, " but I think it's the one in the coffin. Just come along, even if we don't get close enough to hear at the cemetary, maybe we'll find out at the party afterward."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ongley Raymond Ocon III of Danville, California Danville man asks police for ride home, forgets about cocaine in pocket A 19-year-old Danville man was arrested in Redwood City after he asked a policeman for a transbay ride home but forgot about the cocaine he had, the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office reported. Authorities say Ongley Raymond Ocon III had left a party in San Carlos early Sunday when he walked up to a Redwood City patrol car and pressed his face against the driver's side window, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe. The officer rolled his window down and asked what Ocon wanted. He said he needed a ride home to Danville. Wagstaffe said the officer then asked Ocon if he was carrying anything illegal. "He said yes, but then paused and said no," Wagstaffe said. The conflicting answers prompted the officer to ask Ocon if he could search him, and Ocon consented, Wagstaffe said. That resulted in the discovery of a bindle of cocaine in one of his pockets. Ocon was charged with felony possession of cocaine and was scheduled for arraignment today.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Alice Re: Highlighting in HTML Dear Webby, I took a one year evening course at the college to learn HTML and write pages, but never learned some of the neat stuff you do,like the highlighting, for example on the Recommended Resources headline in the left side menu. I find it neat, but nobody else seems to be able to do it. Is that a secret trick, or can you tell me? Alice Dear Alice It's not a secret at all, just a style. To show the actual code and not have your email program execute it, I will use the # sign instead of the angle brackets before and after the code. To get white text on red highlight, use this code: #font size="+1" color="white" style="background-color: red;"# white text on red highlight, #/font# Instead of "red", you can of course use any of the proper color names or numbers. Have FUN! DearWebby

Ted's daughter had adopted a stray cat. To his wife's distress, the cat began to use the back of their new sofa as a scratching post. "Don't worry," Ted reassured her. "I'll have him trained in no time." Nettie watched for several days as Ted patiently "trained" their new pet. Whenever the cat scratched, Ted deposited him outdoors to teach him a lesson. The cat learned quickly. For the next 16 years, whenever he wanted to go outside, he scratched the back of the sofa.
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Halloween Costume Safety Tips Regardless of if your costume is bought or homemade, please use a "homemade" face. As a volunteer with our local fire dept and a first responder, I find it sad that every year at least one child is injured by their costume. Instead of a mask, consider using makeup to create the face. A mask is often bumped out of place and blocks vision. Some masks also contain lead (from the paints) which can be inhaled. Other times small children have had them block their nose and mouth while sleeping and have suffered from a lack of oxygen. So instead of a mask, draw those whiskers and such on the face. If your child's costume has a tail, have them practice stairs with it. You may need to shorten it so that they don't trip over their tail. Don't let them ride their bikes with sandals, tails or other costume parts that can be tangled in the brakes or spokes of the bike. Also avoid materials that are highly flammable. Try to make it with pajama fabric if you can. It is marked as being flame retardant. One step too close to a Jack O lantern can result in third degree burns. Try to place some reflective tape on all sides of the costume and give your child a flash light. Avoid costumes that are of dark or black colors. Lastly, please don't use draw strings around the face or neck area. Use elastic string instead, and make sure it is loose and won't choke a child if caught on something. Source: Very sad experiences.

After a long and serious operation, Lena ended up in a coma. Try as they might, the doctors just couldn't bring her out of it. When her husband Ralph came into the intensive care unit to see her, the doctors gave him the bad news. "We just can't wake her. It doesn't look good, I'm afraid," the doctor told Ralph in a quiet, somber voice. Ralph looked at Lena, and with a soft trembling voice, he said, "But doctor, she's so young. She's only 45." "37," came the weak reply from Lena.

While taking with a client at the coffee shop, I was telling her about a woman who had rear-ended my car at a traffic light. She had tried without any success to blame me for the accident. "She even called me every dirty name in the book!" I said. Just then I looked over to the next table where two nine-year-old boys had apparently been paying close attention to my story. One said to the other, "We got to get that book!"
