Gullible Warming is currently: -31
There was some nice red and orange in the sunset, so it should
be getting nicer in the next few days. 

There were quite a few comments and questions about what I do 
with my fridge and freezer to save $100 a year. Basically, 
a fridge or freezer takes calories out of the interior of it, and 
puts them outside.The cooler it is outside, around the 
condenser radiator, where it pushes the calories off,
the less electricity is required to do that.

In winter it is handy, when the fridge pumps all that waste heat
into the kitchen, but for most of the year, it is a lot more 
convenient, when the kitchen stays cool. If you are in a warm 
climate, and need to run an air conditioner, it gets really
silly, paying for heating up the kitchen with the fridge / freezer,
and then paying for pumping that heat outside with the air 
conditioner. 

By sticking my fridge/freezer (almost) through the wall, like
a window or wall air conditioner, I eliminate all that hassle
and expense.

Have FUN!

Once there was a millionaire, who collected live alligators. He kept them in the pool in back of his mansion. The millionaire also had a beautiful daughter who was single. One day he decides to throw a huge party, and during the party he announces, "My dear guests...I have a proposition to every man here. I will give one million dollars or my daughter to the man who can swim across this pool full of alligators and emerge unharmed!" As soon as he finished his last word, there was the sound of a large SPLASH!! There was one guy in the pool swimming with all he could...the crowd cheered him on as he kept stroking. Finally, he made it to the other side unharmed. The millionaire was impressed. He said, "My boy that was incredible! Fantastic! I didn't think it could be done! Well I must keep my end of the bargain...which do you want, my daughter or the one million dollars?" The guy says, "Listen, I don't want your money! And I don't want your daughter! I want to get my hands onto whoever it was, that pushed me in !!!"

Harry was in the hospital. He was an old man. There was this young nurse. Every time she came in, she talked to him like he was a little child. She would say in a patronizing tone of voice: "And how are we doing this morning?" Well, this is a story of revenge. He had received breakfast, and pulled the juice off the tray, and put it on his stand. He had been given a urine bottle to fill. The juice was apple juice. You know where the juice went. The nurse came in and picked up the urine bottle. She looks at it. "It seems we are a little cloudy today." At this he snatches the bottle out of her hand, pops off the top and chugs it, saying "Well, I'll run it through again. Maybe I can filter it better this time."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Salvatore LaRosa, 25, Staten Island Robber made off with wrong dough How did the mugger botch the robbery of a Staten Island pizza man? He grabbed the wrong bag of dough, of course. Salvatore LaRosa, 25, wasn't laughing when he surrendered to the feds on Friday to be charged in what authorities said would have been been a well-planned stickup. LaRosa and an unidentified accomplice allegedly followed the owners of Brother's Pizzeria home on June 30, 2008. They put on masks and confronted the victims at gunpoint in their driveway, according to a complaint unsealed Monday in Brooklyn Federal Court. The assailants demanded one of the shopkeepers hand over a bag - thinking it contained the day's proceeds, officials said. "The bag that was stolen contained pizza dough," Drug Enforcement Administration agent Kristie Osswald stated in the complaint. Even though it wasn't cash, the robbery victim resisted and was shot twice in the legs. LaRosa was released Monday on $1 million bail, small change for a crook like him.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Gale Re: Not enough virtual memory Dear Webby, I have a computer question for you. My computer gives me messages that my virtual memory is low or I am low on memory. I have done nothing to use up memory like downloads or anything like that. I have checked your tool box and didn't see anything to clean up or refigure my computer. I have used ccrap cleaner, run disk defra, disk cleaner and history delete. I have turned off my computer and rebooted it to restore anything or reset things they made have needed it. Also when I am typing an email, my words come up later then sooner so I can't see what I am typing as I go. Then all of a sudden everything appears like it should have done all alone. I am at a lost as to what is happening or why. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you, Gale --------------------- Dear Gale "Virtual Memory" is a space on the hard drive fenced off and reserved to act like RAM, whenever the real RAM is full. Normally, the size of that fenced off area is set to twice the amount of real RAM, that is installed. You can change that size though Control Panel, System. Personally, especially since sbcglobal/yahoo is involved, I would run a full McAfee scan and find out, what is using that much RAM. If McAfee does not find and remove anything suspicious, then I would use DisKeeper to thoroughly check the hard drive. On my machines DisKeeper is installed the day I get the machines, and runs every night, and I don't get those problems. Have FUN! DearWebby

Following an especially angry argument, Mr. and Mrs. Smith went to bed not speaking to each other. Needing to arise early the following morning, Mr. Smith left a note on his wife's bedside table that said "Wake me at six." An exasperated Mr. Smith awoke at ten the following morning and rolled stiffly out of bed to see a note on his bedside table: "It's six, you lazy bum! Get out of bed!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Substitute Broth in Place of Milk I've recently found out I'm lactose intolerant. One of my greatest discoveries is all the ways I can use chicken, beef or vegetable broth in place of milk: mashed potatoes, gravies, soups, omelets, "creamed" dishes, etc. I use low sodium chicken broth most often. For mashed potatoes, I use chicken broth, soy or olive oil margarine, unflavored non-dairy creamer, pinch of salt, pepper and a dash of garlic powder. Even my picky husband likes them. For creamed dishes I'll use chicken broth and the creamer. The same for pancakes and biscuits. Experiment: you'll find the amounts and combination you like. Broths and creamer are inexpensive if you buy store brands and stock up when they're on sale. Bonus: Helps in weight loss.

"Doctor!" whined the patient. "I keep seeing spots before my eyes." The physician scratched his head, "Why have you come to me? Have you seen an opthalmologist?" "No," replied the patient, "just spots."

A college senior took his new girlfriend to a football game. The young couple found seats in the crowded stadium and were watching the action. A substitute was put into the game, and as he was running onto the field to take his position, the boy said to his girlfriend, "Take a good look at that fellow. I expect him to be our best man next year." His girlfriend snuggled closer to him and said, "That's the strangest way I ever heard of for a fellow to propose to a girl. Regardless of how you said it, I accept!"
