It warmed up quite nicely and some roads were actually wet
with salt-slime and melting snow. The car wash owners were happy.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Rick Ehlert, 44, from Thousand Oaks, California. Anchor Drop Lands Cruise Passenger In Brig NOVEMBER 29--In the high seas equivalent of trying to open an airplane door mid-flight, an intoxicated California man early Saturday released the anchor on a Holland America cruise ship while the vessel was traveling in international waters en route to Florida The deployment of the stern anchor on the MS Ryndam “could have caused significant damage,” though the 719-foot ship was unharmed. A review of surveillance video identified Rick Ehlert, 44, as the passenger who released the anchor (as well as a life buoy). Manning noted that Ehlert was seen in the surveillance footage wearing the same clothing he was photographed in Friday while attending the ship’s formal night (for men, attire can range from a tuxedo to a jacket and tie). In an interview yesterday with federal agents, Ehlert, who was traveling with his girlfriend, admitted to deploying the ship’s anchor and throwing the life buoy overboard. During his confession, Manning reported, Ehlert admitted entering a restricted area, donning work gloves, and taking several steps to release the anchor. Ehlert, who said he was drunk at the time, “stated that he owns a fifty foot boat with a similar anchor system to the ship’s anchor system.” Ehlert, who owns an RV dealership in Thousand Oaks, was arrested on a felony charge of attempting to “damage, destroy, disable, or wreck a vessel.”
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ron Re: Laser for glossy pictures Dear Webby, are laser printers good for making pictures? How well do they do glosseys? RON --------------------- Dear Ron They do them perfectly. The printer at your photo center is a Color Laser. Wet development prints have gone out of style, when Laser printers reached 300 x 300 resolution 30 years ago. My el-cheapo 1320c prints at 600 x 600. The results depend on the Paper. Paper usually has 3 code numbers Weight US Brightness / Euro-Bright There is no "White" ink or toner. The whitest white you can get is the paper. A US Brightness of 100 is "perfect white". The US scale hits the wall there. Even though paper gets better than "Perfect White", for example "Photo White", the US scale stops at 100. There the second number gets important, the Euro White For example, the paper I recommended to Karl yesterday: 28 lb. 100 US / 112+ Euro Bright Ultrabright "PhotoWhite" shade provides better color registration Gloss is cheap glass for easy dusting, and to gloss over coarse printing by poor printers. If you print with a color laser at 600 x 600 or more dots per inch, you obviously don't need the gloss for anything except easy dusting. With inkjet printers, just like with the oily-gloss look, sawed off wide-screen monitors, the gloss fakes the illusion of a higher resolution than you actually got. However, even with cheap paper, a Laser does a better job than an inkjet. The toner has the pigment embedded in tiny wax shells, that melt and carry the pigment into the fibers of the paper. That wax provides a soft, unobtrusive sheen, without taking away the sharpness, the way a gloss does. If dust settling in the pores is not a concern, then go for the sharper results without the gloss. Have FUN! DearWebby

A woman was having a medical problem - her husband snoring. So she called the doctor one morning, and asked him if there was anything he could do to relieve her "suffering." "Well, there is one operation I can perform that will cure your husband, but it is really rather expensive. It will cost $1000 down, and payments of $650 for 36 months, plus payments for extras." "My goodness!" the woman exclaimed, "sounds like leasing a new sports car!" "Humm," the doctor murmured, "too obvious, huh?"

A tiny but dignified old lady was among a group looking at an art exhibition in a newly opened gallery. Suddenly one contemporary painting caught her eye. "What on earth," she inquired of the artist, "is that?" He smiled condescendingly and said: "That, my dear lady, is supposed to be a mother and her child." "Well, then," snapped the little old lady, "then why isn't it?"

Harold had been busy campaigning for mayor, and his last stop of the day was at a Senior Citizens Home. After walking in and looking around for a while he approached an elderly woman in a wheel chair. Bending over to be on eye level with her, he asked her "Do you know who I am?" The elderly lady gave him a good looking over, then told him "No I don't. You don't look familiar. Just go to the front desk, they will tell you who you are."
