What is a double extension?

Good Morning,  !
It's Wednesday, April 20, 2011

It didn't snow today, but people sure kept looking over towards
th mountains. There is a lot of fresh snow over there, no bare
rocks showing anywhere. The general feeling is that the delay
of spring is winding up a slingshot. If it stays cold unti May,
and then a hot May sun hits this mess, there is going to be
a lot of flooding.

I am going to test my basement sump pump today.

Usually, after we have a flood, I see quite a few hot water 
tanks out on the lawns, waiting for a trip to the dump.
This time I plan to snag one or two, and put them up into 
my attic. Initially they will just use waste heat, from when 
the sun heats up the space between the roof and the insulation,
and they will pre-heat the water, that goes to the water heater. 
That way the heater just has to top it off a bit, instead of
starting with icy cold water from the feed line.

Since the water heater remains as my biggest energy consumer,
that will make the biggest difference of anything I can do.

Have FUN!

Thanks to Mike from http://10000birds.com/ for this story: A duck walks into a pet store and says to the clerk, “Got any duck food?” “No,” says the clerk, “we only sell dog food and cat food.” “OK,” says the duck and walks out. The next day the duck walks in the store and says, “Uh, got any duck food?” The clerk once again replies, “No, like I told you, we only sell cat food and dog food.” “OK,” says the duck and walks out. The next day the duck walks in the store and says, “Uh, got any duck food?” The clerk says, “Hey look, I told you two times already that we only sell cat food and dog food!” “OK,” says the duck and walks out. The next day the duck walks in the store and says, “Uh, got any duck food?” This time the clerk yells, “We don’t sell any duck food and if you come in here one more time asking, I am going to nail your little webbed feet to the ground!” “OK,” says the duck and walks out. The next day the duck walks in the store and says, “Uh, got any nails?” “No,” says the confused clerk. Then the duck says, “Got any duck food?”

"Good afternoon, Landlord, a pint of Less if you please," said the old man. "Less? Never heard of it," replied the barman. "Oh, come now surely you have," he persisted. "No sorry, we certainly don't stock it. What is it anyway? Some foreign beer?" "Well I'm not sure," admitted the man. "It was the doctor who mentioned it. He said I should drink LESS."

From Marge Re: What are Double Extensions Dear Webby, I do not understand what you mean by two extensions. Do you mean paper clips or forwards? Please explain. Thank you. Marge Dear Marge Sometimes people send you a mail that has a file attached. It could be a picture, music, accounting spreadsheet, ot it could be some nuisance stuff like a virus or a worm. Each filename has an extension, like color coding, that tells the computer what to do with it. If the file "sunrise" is a picture, then probably the extension would be ".jpg" or ".gif" When your computer sees ".jpg" or ".gif" at the end of a file, it knows that it is a picture and it opens the file with a picture viewer or picture editor. If the extension is ".xls" or ".wb4" then Windows knows it is a spreadsheet file and opens it with the right program. Many viruses are hidden by giving them first a safe looking extension and then tackig a different one behind it. If you see for example a file like "backdoor.jpg.bat", then that file is not a picture, but is a program that installs a backdoor for hackers into your computer, and probably also sends itself to everybody in your Outlook or Outlook Express address book. Therefore, whenever you see more than one extension on a file, dump it fast and thoroughly. If you don't see ANY extension at the ends of file names, then either Microsoft or a hacker has turned that off. In that case, open a File Explorer right-click START Explore Tools Folder Options View In there go through all the confusing looking options and make it SHOW all extensions. Don't let it hide anything from you. Have FUN DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Baskets To Organize Refrigerator And Freezer I find that if I use wire baskets (or plastic) to organize my freezer and refrigerator, it is so much easier to find things and also to clean them. I move the oldest items in the freezer to the bottom bin so they get used sooner. This has saved me a lot of time looking for things.

One morning, while shaving, a fellow started cursing and swearing so loudly it attracted the attention of his wife, who was preparing breakfast in the kitchen. "What's the matter?" she called out. "My razor -- it won't cut!" he answered. "Don't be silly, dear!" she declared. "You mean to tell me your beard is tougher than linoleum?"
