Good Morning,  !
It's Friday, April 15, 2011
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

Thank you Jurrie!

Yesterday morning we had 25 cm (10") fresh snow on top of the 
old snow and the few bare patches. The weather office claims,
they will use a new forecast for May, but not to expect a lot
of changes between now and then. Sounds like 1970's weather.

Once the snow is gone, I am going to put a ladder up the side
of the house and overhaul the office air conditioner. It will 
proably be running a LOT this summer. The 70's had cold and 
late springs and absolute scorchers for summers.

Have FUN!

A small company that had frequent break-ins installed a new security system with alarms, codes and key pads. Late one night the alarm went off and the police raced to the scene. Outside the building, wandering around the grounds, they spotted and apprehended a suspect. The police called the Security Director for the company and said, "We caught the culprit, an old guy with a cane, well dressed, but kinda slow. He tried to pass as an employee, but he knows nothing about your business." The Security Director said, "Oh, that's the president of the company. He can never remember his exit code."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Roberta Spen, 64, Coral Springs, Florida. Instead of pulling over for police, Coral Springs woman pulls into McDonald’s drive-thru, orders lunch Police say when an officer tried to pull over Roberta Spen, 64, Monday for having faulty brake lights, she instead pulled into a McDonald's drive-thru lane and ordered lunch. The bizarre exchange happened along University Drive just south of Atlantic Boulevard at about 2 p.m., and it spawned an all-out police pursuit. Officer Courtney Vassell pulled up behind Spen in the drive-thru lane, and got out of the patrol car. With police lights flashing behind him, he told her to pull out into the parking lot for a traffic stop, according to a police report. Spen, though, completed her food order, paid the bill, and then drove her bronze 2001 Chevrolet out of the parking lot and onto Northwest Sixth Court, Vassell said. Vassell again flipped on his siren and stopped Spen outside the McDonald's, where he said she "rolled her window down one inch and said she was not speeding and she would not roll her window down." Spen also refused to hand over her driver's license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance, then drove away from Vassell, police said. Vassell got back in his patrol car, flipped on his emergency lights again, and followed Spen as she turned north onto Northwest 98th Avenue, east onto Atlantic and then north on University Drive. Several other police officers joined in the pursuit. Although the police lights did not stop Spen, a red light at University and Ramblewood Drive did, and several officers attempted to box in Spen's car. Somehow, though, Spen was able to drive in reverse out of the box and continued driving north on University, police said. Spen finally stopped at the Mobil gas station at 1351 University Drive, where officers again surrounded her car. This time, when she refused to leave the car, the officers went in and got her smashing the driver's side window and pulling her out the hard way, police said. After a quick check-up at Coral Springs Medical Center, Spen was taken to a Broward jail, arrested on charges of fleeing and eluding, resisting arrest without violence and driving with defective equipment. Police said on the arrest report that they found no indication Spen was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the chase, and they could find no explanation for why Spen, who before her arrest Monday had no criminal record in Florida, didn't just pull over. In bond court Tuesday Judge John "Jay" Hurley ordered her release under the condition she submit to a mental health evaluation.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Rose Re: Mystery Shut Down Dear Webby, Glad to see you're health is returning.....you'd be missed it you got worse. I've got an odd problem with my Dell XP computer, It keeps shutting itself off, for no apparent reason. I checked the Settings but nothing indicates whyh that happens. tt's driving me up the sall, specially when I'm in the midst of something imprtant. Using an antiquated 'puter to send this to you. Any advice you can give (other tyhan tossing the beast) would be greatly appreciated. Rose Dear Rose I would vacuum out the computer and clean all the heat sinks. The shrouds over them snap off with a bit of fiddling. If it still does it after a thorough cleaning, call DELL's 1-800 support number. . On a DELL, there is some diagnostic stuff in a hidden partition. They will guide you over the phone through activating that diagnostic software and they can figure out from there, whether your CPU is overheating or whether your power supply is getting flakey.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Toilet Paper Seed Strips About two weeks ago, a gardening tip on ThriftyFun talked about cutting toilet paper into strips and gluing seeds onto the strips. I found it hard to cut into strips. What I did was I rolled the paper out the length of my table. Keeping in rows along the length nine to a square then I let it dry. I rolled it up and then cut it into strips. It worked out well for me.

A man was seen fleeing down the hall of the hospital just before his operation. "What's the matter?" he was asked. He said, "I heard the nurse say, 'It's a very simple operation, don't worry, It will probably be all right.'" "She was just trying to comfort you, what's so frightening about that?" "She wasn't talking to me. She was talking to the doctor!"

The Father knocked on the bathroom door where his teenage daughter had been taking a bath for over an hour. "Cindy! Just how long will you be in that bathtub?" From the other side of the door came an exasperated reply: "Oh Daddy! Water affects your weight, not your height. I'm still 5'4"!"
