Good Morning,  !
Today is Tuesday, July 12

We had some very noisy hail this evening, that seemed to be 
stuck over this area. Usually hail doesn't last more than 
five minutes, this one lasted more than haf an hour. Luckily
the hail itself was just slightly bigger than marbles and did 
not do any damage. Sure refreshed the air!

Just got this from Denise: 
Dear Webby, 
Please warn your readers about the dangerous "Cyberdefender".
I have spent all evening trying to get rid of the "free trial" and 
have problems with my computer now.
Thanks for your great newsletters.
Denise

There is indeed a lot of bad publicity about that program 
on the net. I use McAfee since it came on 360 KB floppies,
but if I didn't, I would avoid any program that has as many people
complaining about it as Cyberdefender has.
Good Luck, Denise!

Have FUN!
DearWebby

Uncle Leroy got a job down at the Broom Factory. On his first day the straw boss (Floor supervisor)calls ol' Leroy into his little office and says, "You the new man huh? What is yer name?" Leroy replied "Leroy" The straw boss says "I don't call anyone by first names. It breeds familiarity and that leads to breakdown in my Authority. I refer to all employees by last names; Now what is Your Last Name!" Leroy sort of smiles and says, "Its Darling - Leroy Darling! The Straw Boss said "Now Leroy the next thing........"
HOW MANY DOGS DOES IT TAKE TO CHANGE A LIGHT BULB? Golden Retriever: The sun is shining. The day is young. We've got our whole lives ahead of us. And you're inside worrying about a stupid, burned-out light bulb? Border Collie: Just one. Not only that, but I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code. Dachshund: I can't reach the stupid lamp! German Shepard: No. You told me to sit. Toy Poodle: I'll just blow in the Border collie's ear and he'll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry. Rottweiler: You can bring a new lightbulb in, but you are NOT going to take any lightbulbs or any of my other toys out of this room. Ever. Shi-tzu: Puh-leeze, dah-ling. What are servants for? Lab: Oh, me, me!!! Pleeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Can I? Malamute: Let the Border collie do it. You can feed me while he's busy. Doberman Pinscher: While it's dark, I'm going to sleep on the couch. Mastiff: Mastiffs are NOT afraid of the dark.

Thanks to Sue for this picture: Click through the picture to the large version. Awesome riding at the Saskatchewan Landing. Who says Saskatchewan is flat?? I am lucky enough to ride where few people have been and I see some sights and hear sounds that fill me with awe of good old mother nature. Sue

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ken Bronstein, New York Atheists to file suit over 'Heaven' street sign NEW YORK (WPIX/CNN) - Some New York atheists are upset with the use of the "H" word. They're upset at a street named "Seven in Heaven Way" and plan to sue. "It's a very religious word, it has a lot of connotations," said Ken Bronstein, president of the New York City Atheists. "It's a whole conspiracy trying prove we are a Christian nation and imprinting our culture and our vocabulary," whined Bronstein. The street was named in honor of seven firefighters who died during the Sept. 11 attacks.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Arlo Re: How do you get to OLDEST in Gmail? Dear Webby, You talked me into using Gmail a few years ago, and I do appreciate the reliability. However, I wish they would leave it alone and stop messing with it. It IS pretty enough! Actually, since I handle my mail with Outlook and only use Gmail as my address, the only time I actually look at it with a browser is when I am away froom my own machine, or when I need to trim my archive down. It used to be easy, hit OLDEST, get the 100 oldest mails, Highlight all, delete, and just do that until I have enough space for a season. Now, while they were redecorating, they hid the link for showing the OLDEST mails in the INBOX. If they expect me to step back 7 GB of mail, one page at a time, fahgeddaboudit! I'll change my address and get a brand new and empty gmail account! Arlo Dear Arlo I agree, they should keep the widdle girls wif wibbons in their hair away from code and stop them from silly redecorating just for the sake of change. However, you CAN still jump to the oldest mail. The widdle girl wif wibbons in her hair didn't totally kill the link to the OLDEST page, she just painted it the same color as the background. In the area, where you used to see the links for OLDEST and NEWEST, you see the numbers, for example 1-100 of 46789 Hit that large number, and the links for OLDEST and NEWEST will become visible. Yes, I agree, it is dumb to hide an important link like that, without telling anybody. I have my Gmail set to show 100 mails per page, and I assigned the exclamation mark ! for "Select ALL on this page" and the tilde ~ for "Delete all selected ones" Once I am on the oldest page, I keep hitting !~ !~ !~ !~ until I got 50% space free. Remember to also dump the trash and the spam. That will make a huge difference! Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Oscar for this one: Our first day at a resort, my wife and I decided to hit the beach. When I went back to our room to get something to drink, one of the hotel maids was making our bed. I grabbed my cooler, but not being sure of the hotel rules I stopped at the door and asked the maid, "Can we drink beer on the beach?" "Sure, Senor" the maid replied, "but I finish clean the rooms first."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Empty tape roll for cord storage When you empty a roll of scotch tape or packaging tape take that hard cardboard or plastic ring and slip it over the plug end to your iron, sewing machine or other electric appliance that the cord is permanently attached. If the ring is too small to get over the end, slice through the ring and slip the cord through the slice. When not in use, you can simply fold the extra cord through the ring for storage. The ring will stay on the cord when you are using the appliance, and be there for you to use over and over.

I sat there waiting for my new doctor to make his way through the file that contained my very extensive medical history. After he finished all 17 pages, he looked at me and said, "You look better in person than you do on paper."

Lisa was out driving her car and while stopped at a red light, the car just died. It was a busy intersection and the traffic behind her was starting to pile up. The guy in the car directly behind her was honking his horn continuously as Lisa continued to try getting the car to start up again. Finally Lisa gets out of her car and approaches the guy in the car behind her. "I can't seem to get my car started," Lisa said, smiling. "Would you be a sweetheart and go and see if you can get it started for me. I'll stay here in your car and be a nuisance on your horn for you."
