Good Morning,  !
It's Friday, May 20
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

Thursday was cold and rainy, but it did not snow at this altitude.
The few times the mountains did peek through, they showed fresh snow.
I think we have to get ready for a flood, when all that stuff gets melted.
At this time of the year, there is a lot of power in the sunshine, when
it is allowed through, and when the big melting is late, it is usually
quite suddenly.

Have FUN!

"The most important things to say are those which often I did not think necessary for me to say -- because they were too obvious." --- André Gide
At a local coffee bar, a young woman was expounding on her idea of the perfect mate to some of her friends. "The man I marry must be a shining light amongst company. He must be musical. Tell jokes. Sing. And stay home at night!" A cynical granny overheard and spoke up, "Lady, what you really want is a TV!"

"Hey you! Pull over!" shouted the traffic cop. The lady complied, and got fined twenty-five dollars. She went home in great anxiety lest her husband, who always examined her checkbook, should learn of the incident. Then inspiration struck and she marked the check stub, "One pullover, $25."

Correction re yesterday's Bonehead Award: just in case it matters, Millwood is in Ware County, Georgia, which is exactly where I live, as well as Sheriff Royal. very interesting. Dave An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Michael Tyrone Donaldson, 20, of Fort Myers, Florida Hitchhiker kidnaps driver at gunpoint A driver who gave a man a ride to McDonald's found himself kidnapped at gunpoint, sheriff's deputies say. Deputies arrested Michael Tyrone Donaldson, 20, of Fort Myers, this past weekend on charges of armed kidnapping, aggravated assault with a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and obstruction by giving false information. On Saturday, Donaldson reportedly asked a man in the parking lot of the Siesta Inn on the North Tamiami Trail for a ride to the McDonald's near the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport. While en route, Donaldson pointed a gun at the driver, told him to drive east on University Parkway and to remove his pants, deputies reported. While headed south on Interstate 75, the two men struggled inside the car, which swerved across three lanes of traffic and eventually crashed into bushes in the center median. Several passersby, including a retired police officer from Tampa, who eventually disarmed Donaldson, witnessed the two struggling on the ground and came to the victim's aid. Donaldson, who was wanted for violation of probation for a narcotics charge in Lee County, reportedly gave deputies a false name.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Barb Re: External hard drive Dear Webby, What's all involved with getting an external hard drive to get more space for a computer? Does it have to be formatted and partitioned? Thanks Barb Dear Barb All you really HAVE to do is get one, plug it in, and drag files to it. No need to format or partition. That makes a totally chaotic pantry out of it, but it works. The civilized way to do it is this way: 1) Draw up a plan for organizing the files on the new drive 2) Get the drive 3) Get a plug-in strip and a bunch of wide rubber bands 4) Plug the plug-in strip into a wall outlet and tame the cable salad behind the computer. 5) Plug in the power cube for the new drive. 6) Plug the USB cable from the new drive into the computer. 7) Go over the file organization plan again and make it really pretty. Chances are good, that you will improve the organization while you do that. 8) Make the folders on the new drive 9) Drag the files, that don't have to be on the primary drive, onto the new drive. 10) Set your programs, for example Open Office, Skype, etc. to save files by default to the new drive. 11) Move anything, that does not have to be on the C: drive onto the new drive. 12) Defrag the old and the new drive. That's all there is to it, to do it like a real proessional. Oh, and forget the silly notion that now you have plenty of space and will never again need an additional drive. I thought that, when I added a 10 MB drive to my 360 KB floppy drive. Have FUN DearWebby

A General retired after 35 years and realized a life-long dream of buying a bird-hunting estate in South Dakota. He invited an old friend to visit for a week of pheasant shooting. The friend was in awe of the General's new bird dog, "Sarge". The dog could point, flush and retrieve with the very best, and the friend offered to buy the dog at any price. The General declined, saying that Sarge was the very best bird dog he had ever owned and that he wouldn't part with him at any price. A year later the same friend returned for another week of hunting and was surprised to find the General breaking in a new dog. "What happened to ole Sarge?" he asked. "Had to shoot him," grumbled the General. "A friend came to hunt with me and couldn't remember the dog's name. He kept calling him Colonel. After that, all he would do was sit on his butt and bark."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Protect Seedlings With Recycled Plastic Bottles I got some 2 liter bottles that I had in my recycling bin. I also had some water bottles saved for recycling too. I cut the bottom and the top off and slid them down over my small delicate plants to protect them from the wind. They will still receive the light and I can still water them. This is working great for these plants.

Thanks to Faye for this one: I did my nurse's training at a hospital in Liverpool, England. My fellow students and I had little money for meals, so we ate the awful food provided at the hospital complex. We often took our breaks in the kitchen, and sometimes kindly vistors would give us some of the treats they had brought for patients. One night a woman brought a pork pie to the kitchen and said to me, "Would you eat this up, love?" Delighted at the offer, another student and I devoured every crumb. Soon our benefactor returned, however, and asked, "Is me 'usband's pie 'ot yet, dearie?"

Thanks to Chris for this one: Five tips for a woman.... 1. It is important that a man helps you around the house and has a good job. 2. It is important that a man makes you laugh. 3. It is important to find a man you can count on and doesn't lie to you. 4. It is important that a man loves you and spoils you. 5. It is important that none of these four men know about the other ones.
