Rumors, that China has donated a Million tons of salt to England,
so that the cars rust out faster, are just a rumor. Some joke that
it was Volvo, who donated the salt, to promote their stainless
steel cars.

Skype experienced major problems today. They are feverishly 
working on restoring service, and I can really sympathize with
their techs. The way Skype is set up, with a lot of the routing
"outsourced" to countless servers and user computers, don't
expect your service to come back and stay good. It will come
back for a minute or two, then be off again. During that minute 
it works perfectly, but then somebody else will get a chance
to blast out, whatever they have queued up.

Have FUN!

I met a man who had been married for 66 years. "Amazing. 66 years!" I said. "What's the secret to such a long, happy marriage?" "Well," he replied, "It's like this. The man makes all the big decisions ... and the woman just makes the little decisions." "Really?" I responded. "Does that really work?" "Oh, yes," he said proudly. "66 years, and so far, not one big decision!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ryan Haynes, 19, of Largo, Florida Robber identified by dropped phone LARGO, Fla., Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said a robber was arrested after dropping his cellphone during a struggle with his victim. Apparently Ryan Haynes, 19, of Largo, pulled a gun on a mentally handicapped McDonald's employee outside the restaurant Sunday night and demanded money, the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times reported Tuesday. Police said the victim was forced to the ground after telling the robber he didn't have any money and Haynes attempted to take his car keys. However, the victim fought back and Haynes fled, apparently dropping his cellphone in the process. Officers said they used the phone to identify Haynes as the suspect and he was arrested less than two hours after the incident. Haynes was charged with robbery with use of a firearm and taken to the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: James Re: Ad free site Dear Webby, I tried to put up a family site, where everybody, in our far flung family could contribute pictures and stories, but I didn't want it with all the restrictions of Farmville or WordPress, so I got a free site. After all, it's easy enough to save any Open Office file as a web page. When I showed my pride and joy to my lady, there was a banner from a competitor on top. I would much rather pay a fair price than have other companies or peoples banners on top of my work. What do you recommend? James --------------------- Dear James That is exactly how I got started about 17 years ago. Because I had no clue and no help, I spent over $100 by the time I had my site up without banners. Since then I have helped people to do the same, for a lot less money than what I paid. You can get a site like http://4mylove.com/james with all professional features, for $2 a month, and NO banners. For $2.50 a month you can get http://james.4mylove.com, or http://james.martian-underground.com, or james.dawna.net, or james...... at any of dozens of domain names I can use for that purpose. If you want a domain name of your own, the name registration is $10 a year, and the hosting is $4.50 a month for a regular site, with all professional features and without banners. You can put your own banners up, if you want, but they will be yours, not mine. Have FUN! DearWebby By the way, if any of you want a quick Christmas site, You can have one for $5. Pick a name to go after 4mylove.com or dawna.net, pick some pictures from http://dawna.com, there are 112 Christmas / Winter pictures to pick from, and email me what text you want. An hour later your site will be up. You can, of course add more pictures and text, if you want, or leave it as is. Up to you. You can edit your site at any time, and after the initial set-up, it's just $2 a month. Can you afford to pass on a deal like that? Have FUN! DearWebby

An old blacksmith realized he was soon going to quit working so hard. He picked out a strong young man to become his apprentice. The old fellow was crabby and exacting. "Don't ask me a lot of questions," he told the boy. "Just do whatever I tell you to do." One day the old blacksmith took a nicely glowing piece of iron out of the forge and with his long metal tongs held it it over the horn of the anvil. "Get the hammer over there," he said. "When I nod my head, hit it real good and hard." Now the town is looking for a new blacksmith.
