Good Morning,  !

Thank you Betty!

Too many of you asked about that Power 4 Home system to answer
all of you individually.

Yes, of course solar works! I built my first solar panels in the late
70's in the Yukon, and powered my house with them. Yes, even
with the short winter daylight hours in the arctic, they work 
quite well. Where you are, they will work even better.

If you are still paying for electicity, then you are on the grid,
and can use the grid for storing excess power and retrieving
it when needed. That saves you the expensive battery hassle,
that I had to put up with in the arctic wilderness.

Even the grid itself has changed in your favor. At one time
the electrical company paid only a pittance for green power,
and used phony excuses like your solar or wind was too
unpredictable. Oh yeah? What about my neighbor's 300 KW welder,
that slams on and of at the weirdest times?
Uh,...duh... 
Yeah right.
Well, thanks to the environmental movement, electrical companies
have been forced to pay a fair price fro green power, and in 
some states even more than fair. In some states, like for example
Arizona, the electrical company even helps you to become
a power produce just like them and turns out to be extremely
helpful.

You won't get filthy rich from a few solar panels, but getting
$10 or $30 or $50 from the electrical company every month, 
instead of paying them $150, is worth tinkering a bit on your
roof.

Have FUN!

Gillian Shephard, a Member of Parliament, paid a visit to Norwich jail to inspect the place and after her tour of the prison, she was shown to her chauffeur driven car by the Governor, whereupon it was discovered that the chauffeur had inadvertently left the keys in the car and he was unable to open the doors. There was much embarrassment until the Governor of Norwich jail came up with a splendid idea. "We have plenty inside here who are doing time for car burglary; shall I get one?" Gillian nodded her assent. Enter Justin, doing a few years for such crimes, and he was invited to display his skills to the advantage of Mrs. Shephard in order to save her any further embarrassment. With that, Justin picked up a large stone and hurled it at the window of the limousine, shattering it in a million pieces. Surrounding press and camera men had to hide behind trees and other cover to conceal their mirth.
One day at kindergarten, the teacher says to the to the class of five-year-olds, "I'll give $5 to the child who can tell me who the most famous man who ever lived was." An Irish boy raised his hand and said, "Please, Miss, it was St. Patrick." The teacher said, "Sorry, Sean, that's not correct." Then a Scottish boy put his hand up and said, "Please, Miss, it was St. Andrew." The teacher replied, "I'm sorry, Hamish, that's not right either." Finally, a Jewish boy, Aaron, raised his hand and said, "Please, Miss, it was Jesus Christ." The teacher said, "That's absolutely right, Aaron. Come up here, and I'll give you your $5." As the teacher was giving Aaron his money, she said, "You know, Aaron, you being Jewish, I was very surprised you said Jesus Christ." "I know, Miss," Aaron replied, "in my heart I know it was Moses, but business is business."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Bryan and Renee Jankowski in Mattawan, Michigan Orange 1978 Pinto leads Van Buren County deputies to meth lab bust VAN BUREN COUNTY A husband and wife from Mattawan were arrested after police said they stole components from a Menards and went back to their trailer where an active meth lab was cooking. Around 9:30 p.m. Monday, the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department contacted Van Buren dispatch that a man had stolen items from Menards on West Main Street and fled in a 1978 Orange Ford Pinto. Later, Van Buren deputies found the man and his wife driving the car into Wolf Lake Trailer Park, 24054 M-43. When deputies searched the vehicle, they found the stolen items, including many lithium batteries, which are used in the making of meth. The man and his wife were arrested and both now face several charges. The suspects have been identified as 41-year-old Bryan Jankowski and his wife, 37-year-old Renee Jankowski. A search of the couple's trailer found an active meth lab, including waste from previous "cooks," finished meth, and other evidence of the sale of illegal narcotics.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sandy Re: What is FileZilla and is it safe? Dear Webby, I noticed that my daughter installed a program called FileZilla on our computer. I don't know what it does and if it is safe. I am going through a nasty divorce and don't want anything spying on me. Sandy Dear Sandy FileZilla is as safe as a spoon. It is the most common FTP (File Transfer Program), and used to up/download web pages for writing and editing them. Like a spoon, it does not do anything on it's own, but is really handy in the hands of somebody, who knows how to use it. Most likely your daughter uses it to upload homework or web pages for school. It is quite similar to your File Explorer (Right-Click START, EXPLORE), and lets you drag for example a just written web page onto the server. However, you can't just drag stuff all over the place. FTP also stands for File Transfer Protocol, and believe me, there is a very strict protocol involved, with user names and passwords. She can upload her homework or web page to exactly HER authorized location, and nowhere else. And none of the other students can upload anything into her space. The FileZilla client can not be activated from elsewhere. It has to be started from your computer, and somebody has to sit in front of it and physically type in 1) the destination host name 2) the authorized user name 3) the agreed on password just to make the connection. FTP has been around for 30 years, FileZilla is just the most used and most respected of all the FTP programs. I use FileZilla myself too, sometimes dozens of times a day. FileZilla takes very little space, and when not in use, takes no memory or processing power. Then it is just a utensil in the drawer. And it is free. She did not waste any money. Don't worry about it and congratulate her on her choice of FTP programs! Have FUN! DearWebby

Shakey went to a psychiatrist. "Doc," he said, "I've got trouble. Every time I get into bed, I think there's somebody under it. I get under the bed, I think there's somebody on top of it. Top, under, top, under ... you gotta help me, I'm going crazy!" "Just put yourself in my hands for two years," said the shrink. "Come to me three times a week, and I'll cure your fears." "How much do you charge?" "A hundred dollars per visit." "I'll sleep on it," said Shakey. Six months later the doctor met Shakey on the street. "Why didn't you ever come to see me again?" asked the psychiatrist. "For a hundred buck's a visit? My bartender cured me for ten dollars." "Is that so! And just how did that unlicensed and uneducated amateur accomplish that?" "He told me to cut the legs off the bed!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Travel with Medications in Original Containers I recently saw a tip from someone advising you to put your medications in those convenient daily containers when going on trips to avoid carrying the medicine bottles. I would strongly advise that you NOT do this. Not everyone knows that it is illegal to carry medicine out of its original container and if you get stopped by the police, they can charge you with carrying contraband. This message should be printed on all packages containing these daily medicine containers. By lilfaith from Murray, KY http://www.thriftyfun.com/ http://www.thriftyfun.com/ I know most of you won't carry a tackle box filled with a dozen or more different original pill bottles, and rather take you chances arguing with the cops, if necessary. Yes, I am one of those too. A reasonable compromise is to tape your list of prescriptions onto your dosette, so that it is perfectly clear, what you are carrying and by which doctor's orders. By the way, look for one of those zippered leather day-planner cases or bible carry-along cases for your dosette. If you ever accidentally drop it, you will know why I sugested that! If you have a spare, please send it my way. I used to have one, but gave it away many years ago. Have FUN!

An office reports that they have an answering machine that instructs callers to leave their name and address, and to spell any difficult words. Early one Monday when the secretary was reviewing the weekend messages, she heard an enthusiastic young woman recite her name and address and then confidently offer, "My difficult word is reconciliation. R-E-C-O-N-C-I-L-I-A-T-I-O-N."
