Yesterday I tried an experiment, embedding a little movie.
It worked OK on some email programs, but unfortuantely not on all.
So today I got a link to where that movie is on YouTube.
Hopefully now all of you can enjoy it.

On vacation with her family in Montana, a mother drove her van past a church in a small town and pointing to it, told the children that it was St. Francis' Church. "It must be a franchise," her eight-year-old son said. "We've got one of those in our town too."
She looked like such a sweet little old lady, driving the cute Toyota with a bumper sticker that said: "Get your own dope." How sweet, I thought, must be a medical marijuana patient. Then I noticed the rest of her message: "Lease a Senator."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Donald Mosley Jr., 40 of lewiston, Idaho Robber found next door at the "Alibi" bar LEWISTON, Idaho -- Police said it didn't take them long to locate an Idaho man suspected in the robbery of a Cedars Inn -- he was next door at The Alibi bar. Lewiston police said 40-year-old Donald Mosley Jr. was arrested less than 15 minutes after he walked into the hotel and demanded cash from the desk clerk late Wednesday. Police found Mosley at The Alibi, a bar located next to the hotel. Mosley was booked into the Nez Perce County Jail early Thursday and faces possible felony robbery charges. The Lewiston Tribune reports this is the second time Mosley has been arrested in recent weeks. In late October, police say he called in a fake fire report from a pay phone after he was declined a cup of coffee at a Lewiston fire station.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Nofries Re: vacuum laptops too? Good Morning Dear Webby, I really enjoy your Daily Humor Letter. So much so, that when I was gone for a month it was the only newsletter I kept. With only intermittent and expensive satellite internet, I canceled all but yours! RE today's tech tip. Geesh, we've been unplugging our pc's before vacuuming. Thanks for the update and explanation. Does this also apply to laptops? Any other recommendations or tips for cleaning a laptop? Also, today's Tech Tip is all on one long line and requires scrolling the window from left to right. Thanks for the daily smiles - I look forward to your newsletter! Nofries Dear Nofries Yes, laptops too. Even though they are not fully grounded, they do bleed off static to ground, when plugged in, so that it does not build up. And laptops most definitely need to be vacuumed out! That powerful little fan that it has inside, sucks a lot of dust and lint into it, and it eventually fills up to the point, where the processor has to run at low speed, so as not to overheat. At those heat levels it doesn't take much to damage RAM or certain components, plus the low speed can be a real nuisance. Long lines in your case indicate a browser or RAM problem. Just go to and see what I actually sent out towards you. Have FUN! DearWebby

According to the Knight-Ridder News Service, the inscription on the metal bands used by the U.S. Department of the Interior to tag migratory birds has been changed. The bands used to bear the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated Wash. Biol. Surv. until the agency received the following letter from an Arkansas camper: "Dear Sirs: While camping last week I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and I want to tell you it was horrible." The bands are now marked Fish and Wildlife Service.
