Some dodos still don't realize, that dumb auto responders just
prove, that they are a stupid and inconsiderate nuisance, 
stuck on pre-1995 drivel. Yes, once upon a time, especially
amongst AOLers, they were fashionable. 
Times have changed! 
Dumb auto-responders went out of style in the mid 90's. 
Toss out your pre 95 drivel and get with it! 

Have FUN!

Mr. Allen, a high-powered executive trying to impress a client in his office, flipped on his intercom switch and barked to his secretary, "Miss Hunter, get my broker!" The client was impressed until he heard the secretary's snickering voice saying, "Yes, sir, stock or pawn?"
Have I got a deal for you! Aquaponics is on special for $37 instead of the normal $97! What's Aquaponics? Isn't that the top secret technology some pros use to grow medicinal herbs and stuff in half the time and two to ten times the crop per square foot? Yes, it sure is! It is the technology of combining a fish tank, that produces all the nutrients the plants need, with hydroponics, that cleans that stuff out of the water and preps it for the fish. Very neat and clean WIN-WIN deal! You don't need a shark tank on your balcony. The book tells you how small a fish tank is enough for your tomatoes and carrots and parsley and mushrooms and herbs. If you have a closet, balcony, or garden space, grab Aquaponics, while it is on sale! AND, they throw in $300 worth of additional books! By the way, there is no weeding necessary with Aquaponics!

As part of the admission procedure in the hospital where Sara works, she asks the patients if they are allergic to anything. If they are, she prints it on an allergy band placed on the patient's wrists. Once when she asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies, she said she couldn't eat nuts. Imagine Sara's surprise, when several hours later a very irate son came out to the nurses' station screaming: "Who's responsible for labeling my mother 'nuts'?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Dodi Wasbotton, 51 in Fontana, California Granny Robber got caught FONTANA, Calif. - A crime analyst who put together a flyer for the "Granny Bandit" wanted in a series of armed robberies outside department stores helped police arrest the woman Wednesday after she spotted the suspect during her lunch break, police said. Dodi Wasbotten, 51, was taken into custody hours after a woman with a child reported being held up outside a Target store by a woman who was wearing a muumuu and covered her face with a scarf. After grabbing the victim's purse, she took off in a dark sedan with missing front hubcaps. A woman matching the suspect's description was involved in three other stickups in the San Bernardino County city of Fontana since Sunday. Women shoppers described being robbed in store parking lots by a gun-toting, middle-aged or elderly woman who covered her face. They described her as being between 50 and 80 years old. Green said Wasbotten, a grandmother of one, has a history of drug and alcohol use. He said she has been arrested by police before, but declined to release details of her criminal history.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Allen Re: What changes do we have to expect with Skype? Dear Webby, What changes do we have to expect with Skype? I imagine security and reliability will drop as it gets adapted to interface with all the Microsoft stuff. What else do we have to expect? Allen Dear Allen I don't think the Skype software will be changed. That is pretty basic stuff. They will just give Microsoft the tools to link into it, much like PayPal gives you the tools to build "Buy Now" buttons, that you can put onto your pages to link into their system. Your buttons don't mess with their system, they just link into it and use it. The changes to expect are slightly higher rates for calling land line and cell phone numbers and considerably higher rates for calling Internet connected devices. That expected increase in rates will make it easy for others to compete. The technology is simple and old. The big deal is the contracts with telephone companies. Have FUN DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Removable Inserts In Birdbath One day it occurred to me that if I got large serving dishes or platters etc., I could put them inside of the bath portion of my bird baths. When it comes time to clean them, it's a snap to just pour out the water, lift out the platter and just wash it up! For the most part, I have found cute and colorful large dishes to place inside my bird baths. In the instance of my largest bird bath, I put the lightweight bird bath dish that I use in the winter inside the cement bird bath. Since it is extremely lightweight, cleaning is a snap! I also put a colorful smaller bowl in the center and some of the smaller birds like to land on that for their drink or bathing!

A young man visiting a dude ranch wanted to be "macho," so he went out walking with one of the hired hands. As they were walking through the barnyard, the visitor tried starting a conversation: "Say, look at that big bunch of cows." The hired hand replied, "Not 'bunch,' but 'herd.'" "Heard what?" "Herd of cows." "Sure, I've heard of cows. There's a big bunch of 'em right over there."

One day a man drove his secretary to her mother's place after her mother had slipped and fallen down the stairs. Although nothing was broken, the mother was hurting and in shock and needed some help and assistance. Although this was a totally proper and formal trip, he decided not to mention it to his wife, who tended to get jealous easily. Later that night, the man and his wife were driving to a restaurant. Suddenly, he looked down and spotted a high heel shoe half hidden between the seats. Not wanting to be conspicuous, he waited until his wife was looking out her window before he scooped up the shoe and tossed it out of the window. With a sigh of relief, he pulled into the restaurant parking lot. That's when he noticed his wife squirming around in her seat. "Honey," she asked, "have you seen my other shoe?"
