Awkward DVD

Good Morning,  !
It's Sunday, June 26

I heard some interesting comment from the oil patch.
The drop in fuel prices in the US was NOT due to Obama
raiding the Strategic Emergency Reserve. That does not
work that fast, because the reserve is not in tanks at 
refineries, but in barges spread along major rivers. 
In the spirit of stragegic reserve, it is not a fixed target,
but very widely distributed. It will take 3 - 4 weeks for that 
oil to get to refineries.

The sudden weekend drop in fuel prices was just due
to the drop in Canadian fuel prices early last week,
plus the US refineries showing their annoyance with the
Government messing with the Strategic Emergency Reserve
on Thursday. Dropping the pump price by 25 cents means 
15 cents LESS taxes per gallon sent to the government. 
SLAP!

Wether stealing from the reserve will lower or raise the
pump price, we will find out in 3 - 4 weeks.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Anthony Paul Burdeshaw, 33, in Bayou George, Florida Police: Fla. Man Texted Mom To Hide Drugs From Cops A Florida man texted his mother asking her to hide his drug evidence, police in Bay County said. Anthony Paul Burdeshaw, 33, is being held on drug charges in Bayou George. Investigators said they were talking to Burdeshaw's mother about an abandoned barn next to the family's home that contained methamphetamine-manufacturing chemicals when she received a text from her son. According to a story in TheNewsHerald.com, the message read: "Hey Mom can u go to my bedroom and get the glass bowl under the bed and wash it with water really good and don't give the cops permission to search." The mother eventually brought out to police a glass bowl that tested positive for meth. The investigation is ongoing. Additional charges are pending.
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

Thanks to Ellen for this one: One of my picture frames was broken, and I decided to try my hand at repairing it. A screw was missing in one corner, so I called the hardware store. "Do you carry screws for picture frames?" I asked. "What size do you need?" "I don't know, but it's rather small." The man sighed. "Ma'am, we have 'itsy-bitsy' size screws for 49 cents in a package of 10, and we have 'teeny-weeny' size screws , also for 49 cents in a package of 10. I can give you a special deal and sell you both packages for a dollar.'"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Socks for Dusting Use the lonely lost sock from the dryer as a duster. I turn it inside out and spray furniture polish on it that swipe it were ever there is a hint of dust and voila!, the dust is on the sock. Tube socks with the terry cloth on the inside work the best. When done just wash and dry it and wonder where that extra sock came from. Like I do.
