What are these "new" Windows and Internet Explorer 
security holes about? Should you worry or panic?

Well, for a start, those holes are not new. They have existed
for about a dozen years. What's new is talk about them.

The security hole is Internet Explorer and the way it saves
MHTML (Mime html) files. If you never save entire web pages,
including sound or video, then you got very little to worry about.

When a download form a dubious site uses the mht or mhtml
extension, stop it and delete what you downloaded.

If you use FireFox, don't worry about it. 
However, in general, try to avoid downloading entire page
packages or archives.

Have FUN!

A nervous young minister, new to the church, told the flock, "For my text today, I will take the words, 'And they fed five men with five thousand loaves of bread and two thousand fishes.'" A member of the flock snicked at the preacher's snafu, raised his hand and said, "That's not much of a trick. I could do that." The minister didn't respond. However, the next Sunday he decided to repeat the text. This time he did it properly, "And they fed five thousand men with five loaves of bread and two fishes." Smiling, the minister said to the noisy man, "Could you do that, Mr. Perkins?" The member of the flock said, "I sure could." "How would you do it?" "With all the leftovers from last Sunday!"

Mr. and Mrs. Thorne had just reached the airport in the nick of time to catch the plane for their two-week's vacation in the Bahamas. "I wish we'd brought the piano with us," said Mr. Thorne. "What on earth for?" asked his wife. "I left the tickets on it."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to sent in by Lillemor Public Urination Lands Fugitive In Jail Then and now JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man convicted of armed robbery in Jacksonville nearly 30 years ago had been on the run since escaping from a Tampa work release center in 1983 was arrested last week after an Atlanta officer saw him urinating in public. When the man was picked up on Friday, he told police his name was Claude Brooks. Because the charge was for a civil infraction rather than criminal, he was released on bond the next day. When Fulton County authorities ran his fingerprints through a national database, they learned the man was Edward Nathan Jr., 50, who was a fugitive wanted by the Florida Department of Corrections. Hours after learning Nathan's true identity, the U.S. Marshals Office helped Atlanta police arrest Nathan on the Florida warrant. According to Florida DOC Interim Secretary Walter McNeil, Nathan waived his extradition and should be returned to Florida quickly. Nathan was serving a five-year sentence for armed robbery in Jacksonville when he walked away from the work release program on Aug. 27, 1983.

Reset your Windows Password if you forgot or accidentally changed it. No need to re-install Windows or an expensive service call, IF you can find a tech willing to do it without calling the cops about a potentially stolen computer. RoboForm is great, once you are booted up. This program takes care of the boot-up password, so that you CAN get to RoboForm and all your other passwords. YOUR memory might be perfect, and YOU might never make a mistake, but if somebody in your house is not quite as perfect as you are, then better get the Password Resetter

As I drove into a parking lot, I noticed that a pickup truck with a dog sitting behind the wheel was rolling toward a woman standing by the curb waiting for somebody. She seemed oblivious, so I hit my horn to get her attention. She looked up just in time to jump out of the way of the truck's path, and the vehicle bumped harmlessly into the curb and stopped. I rushed to the woman's side to see if she was all right. "I'm fine," she assured me, "but if that dog hadn't honked..."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Save Time and Money With Home Cooked Meals Convenience food and take out food does not save time. Do this test: Time yourself. Use a timer or regular clock and write down exactly how much time it took to go to and return from the fast food restaurant, deli or pizza place. Then time yourself in the kitchen, how long it takes to serve a similar but home-cooked meal. You will be amazed to see how much longer it takes to go get the convenience food.

Trisha got lost in her car in a snow storm. She remembered what her dad had once told her. "If you ever get caught in a snow storm, wait for a snow plow and follow it." Pretty soon a snow plow came by, and she started to follow it. She followed the plow for about forty five minutes. Finally the driver of the truck got out and asked her what she was doing. She explained that her dad had told her if she ever got caught in a snow storm, to follow a plow. The driver nodded and said, "Well, I'm done with the Wal-Mart parking lot, now you can follow me over to K-Mart"
