Seems the US State Department is as far out of step with reality
as the White House. After Special Envoy Wisner, who was on
location and knows what is going on, suggested that Mubarak
should stay in office to oversee a controlled transition of power,
so that it would not be too chaotic, the State Department effectively
disowned him and said that was HIS opinion, not the position
of the US Government.

Which obviously does not have a clucking fue.

Ice cream parlors and food shops at and near Tahir square
are open and doing great business with the hordes of reporters
and celebrities. who want to be seen and photographed. The 
protest seems to have simmered down to about the level of a
Seattle SPCA protest or a San Francisco Gay Rights protest.

Right now it seems to be mostly young people trying to see 
what they can get away with, and a few older ones, desperately 
trying to outnumber the media.

Most of the opposition seems to have realized that they have
nobody to replace Mubarak and his people, and need time to
get organized. Mubarak's Judo move, 'you push, so I pull' 
of dumping the entire cabinet, got them rather scared. 
Who is going to do the work? Who KNOWS how to do the work?

In the meantime, there are over 70,000 people making a big
raket in Belgrade, Serbia. And Serbians are not as calm and
laid back as Egyptians.
Huh? 
I can just hear Obama complaining that nobody tells him nothing.
Where is Serbia anyway?
Didn't Bush have some kinda war over there?
What's going on over there?

Well, they got a bit too Socialistic and their economy got 
stuck.They have trouble getting more loans, and people are
hungry. The next election is not scheduled until 2012, and 
people feel they can't survive that long on what there is
available. 

It's too early to tell whether the current protest will turn as 
violent as previous ones, but as I am writing this, the 
riot police is in firm control, and some say the protest
is surprisingly civilized. 

Have FUN!

One day, Little Johnny visited a doctor for a vaccination. After the doctor gave him an injection, he tried to bandage around Johnny's arm. "I think you'd better bandage around the other arm, doc!" asked Little Johnny. "But, why? I'm supposed to bandage around the injected part of your arm to let your friends know not to touch it." "You really don't seem to have a clue about how kids behave!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a parking valet in Montreal, Quebec Montrealer caught doing 240 A 20-year-old man was pulled over in Montreal early Friday morning for allegedly driving more than three times the speed limit in a BMW sport utility vehicle. Sgt. Genevieve Bruneau of the Surete du Quebec told CTV.ca the young man was clocked at 240 kilometres per hour, in a 70 km/h zone. The man was travelling on Highway 720 at about 3 a.m. when he passed by police officers conducting a speed monitoring operation. The driver pulled over as soon as police pulled out behind him, and came to a stop just before the entrance to the Ville Marie Tunnel. Bruneau said police issued a ticket for $2,598, suspended the man's license and had the vehicle towed. He also received 42 demerit points. After 15 points, drivers in Quebec are effectively unable to obtain or maintain a licence. Bruneau would not confirm nor deny reports that the man works as a valet at a nearby hotel, however other sources confirmed that. Bruneau said new laws in Quebec allow police to double set fines and demerit points when excessive speeds are reached, such as in this case. Officers are also able to immediately suspend the driver's license for seven days. Police can impose even harsher penalties on a second offence.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sharon Re: Windows forces me to select a user Dear Webby Thanks again for your wonderful humor. It sure brightens a dull looking day. Thank you for taking time to share with us. I have a couple of curious questions: Something odd happened yestrday after I ran an antispyware run that has not happened before. I don't think this is due to that action but now when I restart or turn on my pc my "Welcome page" comes up 1st wanting me to log in. Luckily all I have to do is click on "owner" as I have never set a password for it. I went to conrol panel & opened "user accts". Then I clicked on "change the way users log on or off" Then I noticed the "use the welcome screen" had a check mark next to it. I didn't do anything with it. Usually all I do is turn on the pc & my usual desktop comes up, not the welcome page. Should I uncheck that box to go back to my usual way? I am the only one who uses this pc. Another thing that happens is for some reason I have to go almost every day to my address book & change the view in it. I have it set to read names by alphabet w/ A -Z in the ascending order but it keeps changing to the descending order. Neither of these seem to be major issues just a nuisance. Any tips on how to correct them? I sure appreciate you help. Have a purrfect day, Sharon Dear Sharon Dear Sharon With XP, if you have only one user, and no password set, it normally boots straight to the desktop. If an intruder changed that, it's fairly easy to get THAT part back to normal: Go to Start -> Run. Copy and paste the following into the Open box: control userpasswords2 Click OK. In the "Users for this computer" box, click on the account you want to have logged on automatically. Uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Click OK. In the box that pops up, make sure the account you clicked on earlier is entered next to User Name. Enter your password twice. Note: You can leave the password box blank if the account does not have a password. Click OK. Reboot to see if you get the desired results. If you prefer, you can download a Microsoft program called TweakUI or PowerToys and configure it accordingly. While you are in there, you will also see who the mystery alternate user is. Unless that is somebody you authorized to go in and change the address book sort order and other stuff, but forgot about it, you might want to dump that alternate user. Have FUN! DearWebby
If you have Windows 7, sooner or later you WILL need this! 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

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Disinfecting Wipes for Kitchen and Bath Clean Up To keep my kitchen and bathrooms smelling fresh and germ free, I use Lysol disinfecting wipes. After doing the dishes and wiping the counters, tables and appliances, I go back over the counters, tables and appliances with a Lysol wipe. I also use a wipe to clean the stove hood. With a simple wipe, all the greasy build up comes off clean. I do the same thing in the bathroom. After cleaning, I use a wipe and wipe everything down again. I keep a jug of the wipes on the toilet and after using it, the toilet gets wiped down with a wipe. Another jug is kept next to the sink for wiping it down after each use. Only takes a second or two and leaves it smelling nice and tackles the germs at the same time! I buy the wipes at Dollar General, and lots of times I can even find them at the Dollar Tree. But even if I have to buy them at Wal Mart, they aren't too expensive. And it's a small price to pay for such a clean smelling room and to get rid of the germs! By Cricketnc from Parkton, NC http://www.thriftyfun.com/ Do you realize, that your obsession with germs stymies and de-trains your immune system? The odd germs in low quantity are good training and updating for your immune system, so that it CAN fight off germ based illnesses. It is usually best to not get too fanatic with the anti-germ-warfare in the house. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.
