Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

Full Moon mania affects Obamanov, again.
This time he proposed to charge Canadians, who fly into 
the US $5.50 per trip, ostensibly to help pay down the 
deficit.

That charge or fine for hauling hard currency into the US and
spending it there, discourages travel to the US, and since 
the collection of the charge or fine is done in Canada, it
boosts Canadian jobs. 

US citizens would be excempt from that fine for hauling 
hard currency to the US, since they would be hauling 
US dollars to Canada. 

In sumary, he wants to
discourage travel to the US and
subsidize travel within Canada,
create employment in Canada, all just to
collect a ridicuous fine, that probably costs more 
to collect, than it brings in.

Either Obamanov or his speech writer, or both, 
are giving dope a bad name, 
but the Canadian tourism industry is heartily 
applauding.

Have FUN!

"It's not so much how busy you are, but why you are busy. The bee is praised. The mosquito is swatted." --- Mary O'Connor
Getting away from their high-stress jobs, a couple spends relaxing weekends in their motor home. When they found their peace and quiet disturbed by well-meaning, but unwelcome, visits from other campers, they devised a plan to assure themselves some privacy. Now, when they set up camp, they place this sign on the door of their RV: "Insurance agent. Ask about our term-life package." -------------- Another trick that used to work quite well was putting a violin case and a sheaf of musical scores onto the picnic table. Nobody will park on either side of you. By the way, you can fit 11 cans of beer or pop into a good violin case.
Since nobody seems to want to have that Rogue remover getting rid of phony virus removers and guarding against them, I have moved it into the Tool Box. When you do need it, and if your infection allows you to get it, it will be there.

One evening after dinner, my five-year-old son noticed that his mother had gone out and he asked, "Where did mommy go?" In answer to his questions, I told him, "Mommy is at a Tupperware party." This explanation satisfied him for only a moment. Puzzled, he asked, "What's a Tupperware party, Dad?" I've always given my son honest answers, so I figured a simple explanation would be the best approach. "Well, son," I said, "at a Tupperware party, a bunch of ladies sit around and sell plastic bowls to each other for twice the price they cost at Walmart." He nodded, indicating that he understood this curious pastime. Then he burst into laughter. "Come on, Dad," he said. "What is it really?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Texas legislature Prisons full in Texas The rate of violent crime in Texas has fallen sharply since the mid 1990s, and thanks to permissive gun laws, overall violent crime in Texas today is at its lowest level in more than thirty years, but you wouldn’t know that by looking at the state’s prisons. The Texas Department of Corrections Institutional Division is bulging with convicts, and the Bexar County Jail is overflowing to the point that costs to the county are skyrocketing. A conservative and business group says the reason is simply...Texas has too many crimes. “There are thousands of amazing things you can be sent to prison for today by both state and federal courts,” said State Rep. Jerry Madden (R-Plano). “You can go to jail for importing orchids without the proper paperwork, shipping lobster tails in the wrong packaging, and even for failing to return a library book.”
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Robert Re: Running out of space on C: drive Dear Webby, I partitioned my hard drive, like you suggested, and have almost only the Operating System on the C: drive, but I started getting warnings, that it is getting too full. What is going on? Robert Dear Robert Shut down all programs before sutting down the computer. Yes, ALL! Even little and insignificant helper utilities. That will drastically reduce the start-up cheater files pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys. Windows uses them to cache what is running, and uses that to help starting up next time, so that the start-up is not quite THAT embarrassing. Just closing all programs can gain you 3 - 5 GB of space on the C: Drive. Usuallythat is enough elbow room to do some weeding. Also use Crap Cleaner and dump the recycle bin. By the way, you CAN move the Recycle Bin to the E: drive. Reboot and start looking for log files. If you, for example, use the Tab Saver, a very handy and highly recommended FireFox Add-In, it saves the open tabs every time you open or close another tab. That comes in extremely handy, when a malicious program or a nasty user malfunction closes the browsers without saving the tabs, or dumps the cookies and history (inluding tabs). TabSaver writes a little log file, each time you ipen or close a tab. If you told it to save them on the C: drive, and somebody in your famiy is a prolific browser, after a couple of years you could have over a Million of those little 4 - 5 KB log files. Usually there is no need to keep them longer than a week, and maybe one a month for sentimental reasons, but the rest can be dumped. Just make a folder and call it Tab-Keepers, and drag one from each month into it, and delete the rest. You will be surprised how much space you gain, and how much faster everything works. The same, of course, also applies to any other program that keeps a log. Have FUN! DearWebby

An elderly widow and widower had been dating for about five years when the man finally decided to ask her to marry. She immediately said, "Yes." The next morning when he awoke, he couldn't remember what her answer was! "Was she happy? I think so. Wait, no, she looked at me funny," he thought. After about an hour of trying to remember to no avail, he called her on the telephone. He was very embarrassed and admitted to her that he just could not remember her answer to the marriage proposal. "Oh", she said, "I am so glad you called. I remembered saying 'yes' to someone, but I couldn't remember who it was."

One night a teenage girl brought her new boyfriend home to meet her parents, and they were appalled by his appearance: leather jacket, motorcycle boots, tattoos and pierced nose. Later, the parents pulled their daughter aside and confessed their concern. "Dear," said the mother diplomatically, "he doesn't seem very nice." "Oh please, Mom," replied the daughter, "if he wasn't nice, why would he be doing 500 hours of community service?"

Little Suzie ran into the house, crying as though her heart would break. "What's wrong, dear?" asked her mother. "My doll! Johnny broke it!" she sobbed. "How did he break it, Suzie?" "With his head! I hit him over the head with it."
