Space enthusiasts are hurrying to Santa Barbara County in 
California to hopefully catch a glimpse of the X-37B Space Plane,
landing at Vandenberg Air Force Base. It has been in space 
since April 22 and rumor has it, that it might be coming back 
down this week. The X-37B looks similar to the Shuttle, but
is a trim military spec racer, not a deluxe VIP school bus.
So far the mission has been quite a success.

Have FUN!

While working as a volunteer at our local Boy Scout Council office, one of the professional staff -- who was wearing street clothes instead of her usual uniform -- was talking about the NATO phonetic alphabet. She said that she had learned it some years ago and proceeded to recite it. "Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta..." But, when she got to the letter "U," she stumbled and asked for help. I offered a hint: "What AREN'T you wearing today?" "Underwear?" she replied. (Actually, the mnemonic for U is Uniform)

Although this married couple enjoyed their luxury fishing boat together, it was the husband who was behind the wheel operating the boat. He was concerned about what might happen in an emergency. So one day out on the lake he said to his wife, "Please take the wheel, dear. Pretend that I am having a heart attack. You must get the boat safely to shore." So she drove the boat to shore. Later that evening, the wife walked into the living room where her husband was watching television. She sat down next to him, switched the TV channel, and said to him, "Please go into the kitchen, dear. Pretend I'm having a heart attack. You must set the table, cook the dinner, and wash the dishes."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ricky New, 45, of Aiken, South Carolina Lawn mower as get-away vehicle too slow A US man was arrested after he held up a convenience store with a stick - then tried to make his getaway on a lawn mower. Police say Ricky New, 45, of Aiken, South Carolina, has been charged with assault and armed robbery following the "stick up". He is accused of walking into the Kent's Korner store where he ordered the clerks to "give me your damn money", reports the Aiken Standard. He began to hit one of the clerks with the stick, said sheriff's office spokesman Capt Elwell. She threw her arm up to protect herself from the attack and was struck on the arm several times. "She was bruised, but she is OK," Capt Elwell added. "He received an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene on his getaway vehicle - a Craftsman riding lawn mower." Sheriff's deputies caught up with Wood, who had disguised his identity by putting a white towel over his head, a short time later.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Carolyn Re: Can't click on links in mail Dear Webby, I got my problem solved (not being able to click on the URL's) I called Embarqmail, like you said, and we determined that, when I had downloaded Google Chrome the other day and didn't like it, and tried to uninstall it, it put a pop up blocker on and that was causing the trouble. Glad it got fixed - hopefully others who try it and uninstall won't have the trouble I did! Thanks for all great newsletter. Carolyn --------------------- Dear Carolyn Glad you got it fixed. You are not the only one unhappy with Google Chrome. Apparently it messes with quite a few settings, that affect other programs. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to ********* * Name withheld by request I was taking a shower when my 2-year-old son came into the bathroom and wrapped himself in toilet paper. Although he made a mess, he looked adorable, so I ran for my camera and took a few shots. They came out so well that I had copies made and included one with each of our Christmas cards. Days later, a relative called about the picture, laughing hysterically, and suggesting I take a closer look. Puzzled, I stared at the photo and was shocked to discover that in addition to my son, I had captured my reflection in the mirror - wearing nothing but a camera!
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Save Electricity with Motion Detector Light Switches A good way to save on electric bills, especially when you have someone in the home who forgets to turn out the lights, is to install motion detector switches. These are great. They turn themselves on when you enter the room and off when you exit. By Carla from Huntington, WV Motion detector light switches are not just for forgetful people. They are a MAJOR convenience for all areas, that you normally enter or leave with your hands full, like the pantry, the coffee maker end of the kitchen, etc. These are not the big outdoor motion lights, but simply a replacement wall switch, for example Home Depot Motion Switch Model # SL-6105-WH Internet # 100654964 Use the Internet number for free shipping. They simply replace the old, manual wall switch. You don't have to mess with the lights at all, just replace the wall switch and set the delay time with the little wheel in it. Usually a minute after the last motion is plenty. They cost around $15, but they outlast manual switches, because you never have to touch them. If you need to send an affordable gift, that will REALLY be appreciated, you probably can't find anything better than a motion switch. Have FUN!

After watching the movie Cinderella, five-year-old Sarah started using her pinwheel as a magic wand, pretending she was a fairy godmother. "Make three wishes," she told her mother, "and I'll grant them." Her mom first asked for world peace. Sarah swung her wand and proclaimed the request fulfilled. Next, her mother requested for a cure for all ill children. Again, with a sweep of the pinwheel, Sarah obliged. The mother, with a glance down at her rather heavy curves, made her third wish, "I wish to have a trim figure again." The miniature fairy godmother started waving her wand madly. "I'll need more power for this!" she exclaimed.

A husband and wife attend a small service at the local church one Sunday morning. The man was very moved by the preacher's sermon, so he stopped to shake the preacher's hand. "Reverend, that was the best damn sermon I ever did hear!" The Reverend replied, "Oh! Why, thank you sir, but please, I'd appreciate it if you didn't use profanity in the Lord's house." "I'm sorry Reverend, but I can't help myself... it was such a damn good sermon!" The Reverend replied, "Sir, please, I cannot have you behaving this way in Church!" "Okay Reverend, but I just wanted you to know that I thought it was so damn good, that I put $5,000 in the collection plate." The Reverend's eyes opened wide as he remarked, "Holy Shit!!!! Five Thousand!!! That will fix the church roof!"
