FireFox 4 not ready for you? 



Zoom the font size for best readability
Good Morning,  !
It's Friday, May 13
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops! 

FireFox 4 is not quite the success story, that some magazines
claim it is. Sure, it is faster than any other browser, and
scores really well in comparison tests. In some ways, it
reminds me of a Ferrari I once rented. Briefly.
Sure it was fast, but the ride comfort was worse than 
on an Amish buggy, and it was extremely noisy inside.

FF4 works well, but a lot of the add-ons have not been
checked and approved yet. Same story as with XP-SP3,
that was released, before all drivers for it were available.

If you use a lot of the neat add-ons to make the ride more
comfortable and have the world customized the way you like 
it, then you might want to wait with upgrading until version
4.2 or 4.3. 

If you don't care about the add-ons and just want raw speed,
to get the most out of your slow dial-up, then go for Firefox 
version 4.1 now. 

Have FUN!

The telephone rings in the principal's office at a school and the principal said, "Hello, this is Dunn Elementary." The caller said, "Hi. I'm calling to let you know that Little Johnny Johnson won't be able to come to school all next week." "What seems to be the problem with him?" asked the principal. The caller said, "We are all going on a family vacation. I sure hope there is not a problem with that." "I guess that would be fine," said the principal. "May I ask who is calling?" The caller said, "Sure. This is my father."
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!

Knowing that the minister was very fond of cherry brandy, one of the church elders offered to present him with a bottle on one consideration - that the pastor acknowledge receipt of the gift in the church paper. "Gladly," responded the good man. When the church magazine came out a few days later, the elder turned at once to the "appreciation" column. There he read: "The minister extends his thanks to Elder Brown for his gift of fruit and for the spirit in which it was given."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Raymond Roberge,65 in Bridgeport, Conn Calls 911 Requesting Emergency Beer Run Robert Roberge is a 65-year-old man from Bridgeport, Connecticut. His hobbies include pounding brewskies, being lonely, and calling 911 whenever he needs something. He's called the emergency number 79 times this year. Each proved to be a false alarm. And each time the cops have warned him to stop calling over goofy shit. For example, he once called offering police and medics $20 and some loose change if they'd stay at his house and hang out with him. He was back at it again on Sunday, when he called 911 three times. This time, an ambulance and firefighters arrived to find a different kind of emergency. It seems Roberge was in need of some beer. He was hoping responders would carry out this important mission on his behalf by fetching some from the store, even tough it was Sunday and beer sales are not allowed on Sunday in Connecticut.. Alas, after his 79th call to 911, it seems officials finally lost their patience. Roberge was charged with misuse of the emergency system and put into the slammer. While looking for a mug shot, I came across this re-translation.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Melissa Re: FF4 not ready for the Big Time? Dear Webby, I like the extra speed of FireFox 4, but the rest of it is not ready for a spoiled brat like me. How do I get back to FireFox 3.6 without losing all my settings? Melissa Dear Melissa Get FF3.6 here: Simply install it over top of 4.x Don't be in a rush about it and read the questions during the installation. For examle, select "Upgrade", not "Replacement" Upgragde keeps your settings and bookmarks and history, even your open tabs. Replacement is for when your settings are too haywire and you want to go back to a clean default. All the weird and wicked add-ons that you used to use with 3.6 before, will fall in place again and work, as if you had never flirted with version 4. Have FUN DearWebby

A child was on his first visit to the country at his grandparents' ranch and feeding the chickens fascinated him. Early one morning he caught his first glimpse of a peacock strutting in the yard. He rushed into the house, where his grandmother was making breakfast and exclaimed, "Grandma, come and see! One of the chickens is in bloom!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Cloth Napkins Instead Of Paper Our family of four includes two children who can get very messy during mealtime. Instead of having them use cheap one-ply napkins that fall apart the minute you try to wipe your hands with them, I decided to use cloth napkins. The napkins can usually be purchased for $0.50 to a $1.00 each depending on where you buy them. I once purchased a clearance priced set of 4 from Target for a $1.00. I made sure to purchase enough for when we have family over. You can also make your own from old cotton t-shirts but keep in mind the type of fabric you use will determine the amount of absorbency. I would strongly recommend you refrain from decorating the homemade napkins with glitter or puff paint as that might defeat their purpose. By linex_4 from San Antonio, TX http://www.thriftyfun.com/ http://www.thriftyfun.com/ I bought a stack of 8" x 8" micro-fiber cloths in the mid 90's. They can absorb 8 oz (1 glass) of water, each. Yes, amazing stuff! They also work fine for getting spaghetti sauce out of carpets. The only problem with that is that you wind up with a spot that is a lot cleaner than the rest of the carpet. I use them not only for napkins but also for face-cloth, pre-towel drop absorber, (-yes, one of them catches all the drops and wetness on me after a shower, and the big towel is just for invigorating the skin-), dish rag, for cleaning chrome and porcellain, and so on. As long as you keep them out of the dryer and dry them on a line, they seem to last forever. Micro-fiber is not the cheapest per square inch, but sure seems to be the most cost-effective. Have FUN!

The census taker knocked on an old lady's door. He asked her several questions and she answered all of them except one. She refused to tell him her age. "But everyone tells their age to the census taker," he said. "Did Miss Maisy Hill and Miss Daisy Hill tell you their ages?" she asked stubbornly. "Certainly," the census taker replied. Then the lady snapped, "Well, I'm the same age as they are." So, the census taker intoned as he wrote on the form, "As old as the Hills."

The newlywed wife said to her husband when he returned from work one day, "I have great news for you. Pretty soon we're going to be three in this house instead of two." The husband started glowing with happiness. He kissed his wife and said, "Oh darling, this makes me the happiest person in the world." And she said, "I'm so happy you feel this way. I was worried that you wouldn't like my mother."
