Good Morning,  !

A reader asked me today, if I would still buy a Laser printer,
if I printed a lot less. 
Yes, I would.

Aside from being sick and tired of inkjet printers being
unpredictable and fussy, and not lasting much more than a
year, ink and paper for them is more expensive.

Well, you CAN print with an inkjet on cheap laser paper,
if it is just for casual use, but if it has to look good, then
inkjets need clay coated paper, which of course, is more

Since you CAN get color lasers for $100 - $135, there
really isn't much in favor of buying a disposable inkjet

Have FUN!

Thanks to Jay for this story: A guy is 92 years old and loves to fish. He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say, 'Pick me up.' He looked around and couldn't see anyone. He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say again, 'Pick me up.' He looked in the water and there, floating on the top, was a frog. The man said, 'Are you talking to me?' The frog said, 'Yes, I'm talking to you. Pick me up, then kiss me and I'll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen. I'll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous because I will be your bride!' The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front pocket. The frog said, 'What, are you nuts? Didn't you hear what I said? I said kiss me and I will be your beautiful bride.' He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said, 'Nah, at my age I'd rather have a talking frog.'

Thanks to Roland for this one: Our pastor was winding down. In the back of the church the fellowship committee stood to go to the church hall and prepare snacks for the congregation. Seeing them get up, Pastor Michel singled them out for praise. "Before they all slip out," he urged, "let's give these ladies a big hand in the rear."

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Karl Re: Calendar paper Dear Webby, I'm making personal family calendars as Christmas gifts. I created them using HTML and then converted them to pdf documents. Using a color laser printer, what kind of paper do you recommend for printing? A different paper for an inkjet? Thanks, Webby. Karl in Denco --------------------- Dear Karl Yes, definitely different from Inkjet paper. Inkjet paper of comparable weight and quality is more expensive.

Frog day today? Thanks to Noella for this story: A six year old goes to the hospital with her grandmother to visit her Grandpa. When they get to the hospital, she runs ahead of her Grandma and bursts into her Grandpa's room ... "Grandpa, Grandpa," she says excitedly, "As soon as Grandma comes into the room, make a noise like a frog!" "What?" said her Grandpa. "Make a noise like a frog, because Grandma said that as soon as you croak, we're all going to Disneyland!"
Daily tip from Improving Instant Hot Cocoa Make great hot cocoa that's just as good or better then Starbucks (a lot cheaper too). Take one envelope of any kind of cocoa mix, pour it into your favorite mug. Then add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of flavored creamer (I like French vanilla), and then fill the rest of the way with hot water. By Amandaw from Bethesda, OH It obviously does not take much to do better than Starbucks. I am lactose intolerant, but can handle condensed milk OK. Here is how I make hot cocoa at Christmas, the only time I splurge like that. First I heat up the mugs with hot water. Then I put a heaping teaspoon of cold processed cocoa into each, a package of Stevia natural sweetener and some cinnamon. Next I heat up the condensed milk mixed 50/50 with hot water to near boiling. Now don't go check your email while it heats up. Stir it instead, with a wooden spoon, and add a drop or two of Vanilla extract. No more than that! It's hot cocoa, not vanilla soup! Vanilla is supposed to be an accent, not a language. When it is getting close, I put a couple of table spoons of hot milk into each cup and stir to dissolve the dry ingredients. When the milk is just starting to boil, I pour it into the cups from fairly high up. That cools it a bit, takes care of the mixing, and produces the fashionable bit of foam. I AM looking forward to Chritmas! Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

The worried housewife sprang to the telephone when it rang and listened with relief to the kindly voice in her ear. "How are you, darling?" it said. "What kind of a day are you having?" "Oh, mother," said the housewife, breaking into bitter tears, "I've had such a bad day. The baby won't eat and the washing machine broke down. I haven't had a chance to go shopping, and besides, I've just sprained my ankle and I have to hobble around. On top of that, the house is a mess and I'm supposed to have two couples over for dinner tonight." The mother was shocked and was at once all sympathy. "Oh, darling," she said, "sit down, relax, and close your eyes. I'll be over in half an hour. I'll do your shopping, clean up the house, and cook your dinner for you. I'll feed the baby and I'll call a repairman I know who'll be at your house to fix the washing machine promptly. Now stop crying. I'll do everything. In fact, I'll even call George at the office and tell him he ought to come home and help out for once." "George?" said the housewife. "Who's George?" "Why, George! Your husband!....Is this 223-1374? "No, this is 322-1374." "Oh, I'm sorry. I guess I have the wrong number." There was a short pause and the housewife said, "Does this mean you're not coming over?"

Thanks to Cindy for this: As part of the admission procedure in the hospital where I work, I ask the patients if they are allergic to anything. If they are, I print it on an allergy band placed on the patient's wrists. Once when I asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies, she said she couldn't eat bananas. Imagine my surprise when several hours later a very irate son came out to the nurses' station demanding, "Who's responsible for labeling my mother 'bananas'?"
