Thank you Norm!

Today's tech support request is typical of many I get about
social networks. More and more people seem to be realizing, 
that most of that stuff is a big waste of time. 
Great, if somebody is bored, but definitely not something
essential or contributing towards what YOU want to 
accomplish.

Have FUN!

When the bookie asked the veteran horse player the secret of his consistent success, the gambler provided a simple explanation. "I'm just lucky, I guess. I turn to the racing page, close my eyes and stick a pin in it," he said. "Lucky!" the bookie exclaimed in disbelief. "But how did you pick this four-horse combination?" "Well," the gambler admitted, "I didn't have a pin, so I used a fork."

Angus McIveer needed the aid of a specialist, but the fees appalled him. It was $250 for the first visit, and $100 for subsequent visits. Still, it was a matter of life and death, and besides, he had an idea. As he entered the doctor's office, the miser said cordially, "Well, Doctor, here I am -- again!" But the doctor had met this type before. He made a great show of examining the patient with minute thoroughness, and then said "Just continue with the same treatment as before!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Louis Cruz, 20, of Conover Street, Freehold Township, NJ Drunk abandoned overturned car, one shoe LAKEWOOD Police charged Louis Cruz, 20, of Conover Street, Freehold Township, with driving while intoxicated after he abandoned his overturned car and one sneaker in a wooded area off Cedar Bridge Avenue early Saturday morning. Brick Police responded to a 6:15 a.m. report of an overturned car on Cedar Bridge Avenue at the Lakewood border. Brick Police officers Thomas Caufield, Scott Smith and Joseph Rossi found the abandoned white 2008 Honda Civic on the south side of the Cedar Bridge Avenue Garden State Parkway entrance ramp, said Lakewood Police Sgt. Steve Allaire. Brick Police found Cruz at 6:51 a.m. walking with one sneaker on Cedar Bridge Avenue near Route 70 in Brick. Cruz told police his car had been stolen and he was been beaten with his shoe during the altercation, Allaire said. Cruz was walking with another man when he was found. The unidentified man was also a passenger in the car, it was later learned, Allaire said. The passenger is not charged. Cruz and the passenger suffered only minor injuries, police said. Lakewood Patrolman Josh Spagnuolo charged Cruz with driving while intoxicated, underage drinking, reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident. Cruz told police he was driving west on Cedar Bridge Avenue when he hit a patch of ice, crossed the lanes and went into the south side of the road where he hit a snow bank overturning the car, Allaire said.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Donald Re: Social Phishing Dear Webby, Every day, it seems, somebody comes up with yet another social network, and then every bored bimbo and bozo, who don't really have anything to say, expect you to fill out your details, before you can read the bland drivel, that they posted. Is there a way to avoid that waste of time? Much of it seems to be just phishing for your info anyway. Donald Dear Donald Yes, there sure IS a way to avoid that waste of time. Whenever you get a mail telling you that somebody posted something for you somewhere, mark it as spam and delete it. If somebody has something worthwhile to tell you, they will use grown-ups style email, not anonymous baby babble. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Create Extra Freezer Space To save space and make extra room in my freezer, I remove the supermarket packaging. I cut out the label, and place the product and label, into a clear "snap lock" type sealed bag. The label tells me the item and date. The bag replaced the packaging which I have found to take up about 30-40% of the space. Also I separate bulk items into portion packs, each portion is separately bagged. By using the labeled bag last I always know content details of the separated bags.

There was this city doctor who started a practice in the countryside. He once had to go to a farm to attend to a sick farmer who lived there. After a few housecalls he stopped coming to the farm. The puzzled farmer finally phoned him to ask whats the matter, didn't he like him or somethin'. The doctor said, "No, its your ducks at the entrance... Every time I enter the farm, they insult me and call me a quack!" "If the shoe fits, wear it!" The farmer told him, and then called the old doctor from the next village.
