We rebuilt this server after yesterday's attack. I don't know if 
somebody wanted to use the big postcard server to send 
10 Million Christmas cards to the ACLU, or to attack the Pentagon, 
but it was a very bad attack. 

Some good news for a change: 

23,096 Teddybears were thrown onto the ice during a hockey
game in Calgary, an old tradition. Details and link to a video of it
are here at Teddy Bear Rain. 
This is just a screen shot I snapped off the video and doesn't 
really show the rain of teddybears. But you get a small taste of it.

While tossing hats onto the ice when a player scores three goals 
might be hockey's most famous tossing tradition, it simply 
doesn't compare to the grandeur of 23,096 teddy bears and 
other stuffed animals blanketing the rink as they did at 
the Calgary Hitmen game on Sunday: 

For 16 years the Hitmen, who were co-owned by and named after 
former WWF champion Bret Hart, have held a Teddy Bear Toss to 
benefit over 50 charities in Alberta that work with children. 
On Monday, after the 23,000-strong toss, the players 
hand-delivered teddy bears to the Alberta Children's Hospital.  
Brett Hart died in a game a few years ago, but the tradition 

The fans bring the stuffed animals to the game and then wait 
for the first goal to be scored. For the 16,844 fans at the 
Saddledome watching the Hitmen take on the Red Deer Rebels 
on Sunday, the honor went to Cody Sylvester at 3:49 of the 
first period. He scored, and the mayhem started and continued 
for 40 minutes while play was delayed. "It's unbelievable," 
Sylvester told the Examiner after the game. 
"Scoring in front of all those fans and all those teddy bears 
coming down on you -- it's a pretty special moment." 

Have FUN!

Deep in the woods of Tennessee on a country road, a preacher hit and killed a dog. The dog's owner stood nearby, a gun in his hand.The preacher looks at the owner sheepishly and says, "Looks as if I killed your dog." "Sure does." "I'm sorry. Was it a valuable dog?" "I wouldn't say that." "Well, suppose I gave you a hundred dollars. Would that be enough?" "Well, I don't know." "Two hundred dollars. That should do it." "Sounds good." The preacher reached into his pocket and came up with the money. Pressing it into the man's hand, he said, "I'm sorry I spoiled your plans to go hunting." "I wasn't going hunting. The vet told me to take that mangy mutt out to the woods and put him out of his misery, cause pills don't help him no more."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to David Wright, 39, in Springfield, MO Hammer Holdup SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Greene County prosecutors charged a man o n Wednesday afternoon for two robberies of convenience stores earlier that day. City police arrested David Wright, 39, not long after the second robbery. In both robberies, the bandit threatened clerks with a hammer. The first was just after 4 a.m. at the Kum & Go at 1605 E. Kearney St. The second was a little later at the Kum & Go at 1550 N. Glenstone Ave. Police say the robber threatened the clerks with a hammer and ran off with money. Police arrested Wright in the 1700 block of East Kearney at Rancho Court Motel. If he's convicted, he could face prison sentences of between 10 and 30 years for each of two counts of first-degree robbery and at least three years for each of two counts of armed criminal action. A judge set his bond at $200,000.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Mr E Re: Refurb an old machine Dear Webby, Long time no hear and see.. so how have you've been? As for me/us here in the usa, we are still trying to make ends meet..... ok now for my request. I am looking for a good tune up program (that wont destroy my computer, and a program that will find old programs so that i can get them off of my computer). Thank you and have a great day. Signed: Mr. E --------------------- Dear Ed For the UNinstalling, I recommend the Secure Uninstaller It finds the hidden stuff too. For tuning up, you probably need a GOOD Registry tuner like Registry Booster, because by now most likely your Registry is a chaotic mess. I use it myself too, every time I boot up. It keeps my ancient XP klunker running just fine, faster than brand new Windows7 machines. Have FUN! DearWebby

Mia went to a "Dude Ranch" while in Texas. The cowboy preparing the horses asked if she wanted a Western or English saddle, and she asked what the difference was. He told her one had a horn and one didn't. She replied, "The one without the horn is fine. I don't really know when to honk the horn or not."
Daily tip from Store Christmas Decorations In Garment Bags Large swags or garlands can be stored in the zippered garment bags you can get in the dollar store. You can tie them to a hanger for storage in a closet or lay them on a shelf. Easier than trying to put them in a box or wrapping in paper to store.

A big-city counterfeiter decided the best place to pass off his phoney $18 bills would be in some small Southern hick town. So, he got into his new wheels and off he went. He found a tiny town with a single store. He entered the store and handed one of the bogus bills to the man behind the counter. "Can you change this for me, please?" he said. The store clerk looked at the $18 bill a short time, then smiled and told the man, "Sure, Mister. Ya'll want 2 nines, or 3 sixes?"
