Good Morning,  !

Congratulations to Ophelia for her transition to a paid
newsletter! Most people warned her, that she would lose 
most of her subscribers, but she proved them wrong!
Apparently 7% unsubscribed or blocked, 
but 6% upgraded to her $1 / month paid version, and
she hopes to gradually improve that even more.

Considering the economy that seems to be the way to go.
Most of the computer magazines are already paid 
subscriptions, even though they get Millions of bucks 
from Microsoft to speak kindly about W7. 

Once the economy picks up again about a year from now,
commissions from ads will start covering the costs again.
Yes, things will improve late spring next year, early summer, 
just like they started diving a quarter year before the 2008
election. A lot of just hope we can last that long.

Have FUN!

A funny story circulated recently about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. Doyle evidently told of a time when he climbed into a taxi cab in Paris. Before he could utter a word, the driver turned to him and asked, "Where can I take you, Mr. Doyle?" Doyle was flabbergasted. He asked the driver if he had ever seen him before. "No, sir," the driver responded, "I have never seen you before." Then he explained, "This morning's paper had a story about you being on vacation in Marseilles. This is the taxi stand where people who return from Marseilles always come to. Your skin color tells me you have been on vacation. The ink spot on your right index finger suggests to me that you are a writer. Your clothing is very English, and not French. Adding up all those pieces of information, I deduced that you are Sir Arthur Conan Doyle." "This is truly amazing!" the writer exclaimed. "You are a real-life counterpart to my fictional creation, Sherlock Holmes!" "There is one more thing," the driver said. "What is that?" asked Mr. Doyle. "Your name is on the front of your suitcase."
Thanks to Leroy for this one: At my church one day, a woman who had often snubbed me, went out of her way to give me a big hug before the service. I was surprised by her gesture and wondered what had initiated her change of heart. I got my answer at the end of the service. "Your assignment for next week," the minister instructed, "is the same as last week. I want you to go out there and hug somebody you just can't stand."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jerry Brown Jr., 27 and Tatiana Vargas, 21, in Newcastle, PA Woman, 89, dents robber's car with cane, helps nab PA. duo NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania police say a 89 year old woman used her cane to dent the car of two people who stole her friend's purse, and authorities were able to track down the getaway car based in part on the cane's imprint. New Castle police Chief Thomas Sansone says the woman and her 82-year-old friend were accosted outside a pizza shop Sunday. Police say 27-year-old Jerry Brown Jr. grabbed the purse but couldn't peel away before the 89-year-old banged the robber and his car's trunk with her cane. Police found the car, and, based on the description of the robber - and dents matching the cane - arrested Brown and 21-year-old Tatiana Vargas. Vargas admitted not only to being in the car during the incident, police said, but also to having known that Brown intended to commit a robbery. Brown and Vargas are also suspects in a similar incident in Union Township. The two are jailed in Lawrence County on robbery charges and on warrants for other crimes.

Six year old Angie and her four year old brother Joel were sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang, and talked out loud. Finally, his big sister had had enough. "You're not supposed to talk out loud in church," she hissed at Joel. "Why? Who's going to stop me?" Joel shot back. Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, "See those two big men in FBI suits standing by the door?" Joel nodded. "They're hushers."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Your Own Fabric Softener Squares Take a package of soft cloths (e.g., generic brand of J-Cloth) and cut them in half. Soak them in fabric softener, wring out well, and hang dry. When ready to put a load of clothes in the dryer, slip a dried softener sheet in. These can be used a few times over and then you can start the soaking process over again. The sheets last forever and you'll never need to buy fabric softener sheets again.

Thanks to Tina for this story: My husband and I had just finished tucking our five young ones into bed one evening when we heard sobbing coming from three- year-old Billy's room. Rushing to his side, we found him crying hysterically. He had accidentally swallowed a penny and was sure he was going to die. No amount of talking could change his mind. Desperate to calm him, my husband palmed a penny that he happened to have in his pocket and pretended to pull it from Billy's ear. Billy was delighted. In a flash, he snatched it from my husband's hand, swallowed it and demanded cheerfully, "Do it again, Daddy!"

A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. Their conversation was constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, "What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when you're out of the office?" "I give it to them," replied the lawyer, "and then I send them a bill." The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try. The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills. When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.
