Awkward DVD drive location

Good Morning,  !
It's Saturday, June 25

On Tuesday the price of gasoline dropped three cents per liter
(12 cents per gallon) at the pumps while I was getting my eyes 
checked. 
Why or how?
Nobody knows. Some gas stations started it, and the rest 
followed.

Then on  Thursday, Obama released 30 million barrels from the 
U.S. Strategic Emergency Petroleum Reserve, hoping to delay 
the inevitable assassination, or whatever it is, that he is afraid of. 

It is nice to see a slight drop in the gas price. In Canada it is
due to the oil companies and gas stations reducing their profit.
No worries there, they still make a healthy profit.

In the US it is due to stealing from the emergency reserve.
That is extremely worrisome to those, who understand how that
works! Putting the oil back into the emergency reserve is virtually
impossible, and will be left for the next president, because
THAT is going to hurt.

In the meantime, fill up your tank and enjoy the weekend!

Have FUN!

On the way to pre-school, the doctor had left her stethoscope on the car seat, and her little girl picked it up and began playing with it. "Oh wow!" thought the doctor, "My daughter wants to follow in my footsteps!" Then the child spoke into the instrument, "Welcome to McDonald's. Do you want fwies wif that?"
On a special teacher's day, a kindergarten teacher was receiving gifts from her pupils. The florist's son handed her a gift. She shooked it, held it over her head, and said, "I bet I know what it is - flowers!" "That's right!" said the boy, "but how did you know?" "Just a wild guess," she said. The next pupil was the candy store owner's daughter. The teacher held her gift overhead, shooked it, and said, "I bet I can guess what it is - a box of candy!" "That's right! But how did you know?" asked the girl. "Just a lucky guess," said the teacher. The next gift was from the liquor store owner's son. The teacher held the bag over her head and noticed that it was leaking. She touched a drop of the leakage with her finger and tasted it. "Is it wine?" she asked. "No," the boy replied. The teacher repeated the process, touching another drop of the leakage to her tongue. "Is it champagne?" she asked. "No," the boy replied. The teacher then said, "I give up, what is it?" The boy replied, "A puppy-dog!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to No mugshot yet Sean Schmidt, 20 of Buffalo, NY Tossed Pot Lands On Police Cruiser State police say a man's effort to ditch some drugs from a moving car in western New York didn't exactly go as planned. Troopers with the state police Thruway detail say 20-year-old Sean Schmidt was standing with his upper body sticking out the sunroof of a vehicle traveling on Interstate 190 in Buffalo late Monday night. When a trooper following in a state police cruiser activated the car lights to pull the other vehicle over, Schmidt threw a small bag of marijuana, which landed on the hood of the trooper's car. Troopers say Schmidt was ticketed for marijuana possession and not wearing a seatbelt.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Eleanor Re: DVD drive Dear Webby, I tried your suggestion for a foot switch and it works perfectly. What I find even more aggravating is the DVD burner right at the very top of the tower. With the tower sitting on a block, to keep it above the cruising dust bunnies, and holding up the door, that is my desk top, (the left side is held up by a shorty file cabinet), the CD / DVD drive is extremely awkward to get to. Do you have a solution for that? Eleanor Dear Eleanor Most towers have 2 - 3 drive bays, and you might be able to move the CD / DVD drive a bit lower. It will still be awkward, but not quite as bad. A permanent solution would be to get an external USB powered DVD burner. Avoid HP, get a cheap generic one. Those are plug and play and work instantly and reliably, even when tilted sidways and jammed between books on a shelf. Have FUN! DearWebby

After being away on business, Tim thought it would be nice to bring his wife a little gift. "How about some perfume?" he asked the cosmetics clerk. She showed him a bottle costing $50.00. "That's a bit much," said Tim, so she returned with a smaller bottle for $30.00. "That's still quite a bit," Tim complained. Growing annoyed, the clerk brought out a tiny $15.00 bottle. "What I mean," said Tim, "is I'd like to see something really cheap." The clerk handed him a mirror.

MALE OR FEMALE? SWISS ARMY KNIFE -- male, because even though it appears useful for a wide variety of work, it spends most of its time just opening bottles. KIDNEYS -- female, because they always go to the bathroom in pairs. TIRE -- male, because it goes bald and is often over-in- flated. SHOE -- male, because it is usually unpolished, with its tongue hanging out. PHOTOCOPIER -- female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm up again -- and only when the right buttons are pushed. HAMMER -- male, because it hasn't evolved much over the last 5,000 years, but it's handy to have around. REMOTE CONTROL -- Definitely female, because it gives men pleasure; he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying. COMPUTER -- Definitely male, because a female, who is cussed at that much, would not stick around for more of the same.
