Good Morning,  !

Moe sent me a link about the newest ship hijacking, a super tanker
carrying 200 Million dollars worth of oil, 
and a crew of 25 absolute minimum wage employees,
seven Greeks, 17 Filipinos and one Georgian.

Brinks uses two or more heavily armed guards to pick up the
change from the corner store, but the Greek owners of that
Billion Dollar super tanker were too cheap or too dumb to
put some protection onto that big tanker. It looks like they
were trying to lose it, probably to mess with the oil price.

Oh, well. Canada has plenty of oil, and we can always open
the valve on one of the southbound piplines a bit more.

Have FUN!

Before Linda became engaged, she was quite the beauty, and didn't mind letting her boyfriend know it, too. "A lot of men are gonna be totally miserable when I marry," she told him. "Really?" asked the boyfriend, "And just how many men do you plan to marry?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to the British Government Forensics Agency Alcohol and drug sample testing dumped overnight. The Forensic Science Service is being wound down by March NEXT year, 13 months from now. So they stopped accepting any more samples today. Police are scrambling to find licensed labs to do the testing. The works is dead simple and easily automated, but the licensing for producing data, that is accepted by the courts, is apparently a nightmare, and could take many months. In the meantime, the cops are supposed to store urine and blood samples in the station fridge, beside their sandwiches and yoghurts. Apparently there is not a lot of enthusiasm for that, and road side testing is expected to come to a halt.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sara Re: Hard Drive LED in task bar Dear Webby I used to have a little icon that showed me when my hard drive was in use, so that I know if something is auto-saving properly, and also to tell me when a download was finished. It was just a little piece of freeware, but somehow I missed transferring it to this computer, and I can't find it anywhere on the net. Thanks Sara Dear Sara It is still available, but hard to find, and even harder to find the download link on their site. So I put it into my Tool Box, right at the top. For those of you, who are not familiar with it, Disk LED is a small task bar icon, that shows when your hard drive is active. It can aslo be used to show printer queue activity, so that you don't print into the middle of other people's print jobs. It is a very tiny program, less than 3/4 of a MB, and it is free, not even ads. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Snow To Water Houseplants Take advantage of snow to water houseplants! We have had an overabundance of snow this year. It dawned on me one evening that just outside my front door lay a wealth of totally FREE nutrients for my plants! I went just outside the door with my coffee pot and a jumbo drink cup and scooped them both full of powdery snow! Then I sat the coffee pot onto the burner plate of the coffee maker so it could melt and also warm a little bit before watering my plants with it, so they wouldn't chill or shock. While there is still plenty of snow on the ground, I should do this enough times to fill a couple clean empty milk jugs for more free nutrient rich water later! By Melody_yesterday from Otterville, MO http://www.thriftyfun.com/ Melody_yesterday, whoever told you that there are any nutrients in snow, lied to you. Snow is distilled water, good for African Violets, but not much more. Ground water, river or lake water has the minerals and metals, that the plants need. Snow has absolutely nothing but H2O, and possibly a little bit of pollution. If you want nutrient rich water, use dirty, silty river water, or the clear final overflow from a three or four stage septic system. Have FUN!

It had been snowing for hours when an announcement came over the intercom: "Will the students who are parked on College Drive please move their cars so that we may begin plowing." Twenty minutes later there was another announcement: "Plowing has been completed. The six hundred and twenty-seven students, who went to move 26 cars, can return to class now."
