Changing the default email program in W7 

Zoom the font size for best readability  

Good Morning,  !
Today is Monday, July 25

A friend changed her email address, again. 
I asked her why she keeps doing that and being a nuisance?
She claims, it is the only way to escape the spam.

Considering, that I have used for about
15 years, unchanged, I had to laugh about that wacky notion.

Expecting everybody else to update your address every time
you think you are getting mor spam, than you can cope with,
just makes you look incompetent. Are you sure, you should be
allowed onto a computer without competent supervision?

I use MailWasher, and have since the last century. 
Wow, that makes me sound old! Actually, it was just a dozen 
or so years ago, that I first got it.

The main advantages of MailWasher are:
1) It, and you, sort the mail on the server, prior to 
downloading it. You only download the mails, that you are
actually going to read / answer / file. You don't waste time
on spam.

2) It is childishly easy to make filters, that will make sure 
mail from specific addresses always gets through, no matter 
what they write about. Yes, Mom MIGHT be joking about a topic,
that you normally consider spam, so you need a reliable way
to get her mail through.

3) MailWasher lets you easily click together very sophsticated
filters using your own rules and regulations and exceptions.

4) It is surprisingly cheap, and it is really easy to transfer
from an old to a new machine. I highly recommend

Have FUN!

"Whoever could make two ears of corn ... grow upon a spot of ground where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind .. than the whole race of politicians put together." --- Jonathan Swift (1667-1745)
The sermon had been going on too long, and the minister should have been able to see the congregation getting more than a little restless; he droned on none-the-less for yet another 15 minutes. Finally he paused and said, "What else can I say, Brothers and Sisters?" "How about 'Amen,' preacher?" said a hungry soul from the rear of the church.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Leroy Shaffer, 72, in St Francis, Minn Councilman mails fake grenade to himself ST. FRANCIS, Minn. (AP) - Police say a city council member in Minnesota mailed himself a fake grenade to gain sympathy from his constituents. Leroy Schaffer was cited for filing a false police report after calling St. Francis officers last week to report a suspicious package he received in the mail. Schaffer showed the officer a package postmarked from Chicago in his mailbox. Police say the councilman told the officer he thought it was a bomb because "he was in politics and has a lot of enemies.'' Schaffer insisted the officer open the package. And, when the officer declined, Schaffer ripped it open to reveal what looked like a real hand grenade. A note in the box said "The next one will be real.'' When Schaffer was interviewed by detectives, he admitted driving to Chicago and mailing himself the package in order to gain sympathy from the public. The mayor and town council don't get along with Shaffer and don't have any kind words about him, and two local women have restraining orders against him, however, he traditionally gets a lot more votes than any other town councilors. After being charged in the fake bomb incident, he now has resigned from town council.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Peggy Re: Changing the default email program in W7 I have a friend that uses Window 7, and hates the mail program because she can't use her stationery---what would be the best email program for her to change to, so she can use her pretty stationery? Thank you for your help. Peggy Dear Peggy She will have to contact Microsoft Support. Due to very snotty programming, Windows 7 does not allow you to set other email programs as default email programs, well not without some very serious messing around in the Registry. She can use other email programs by starting them from an icon or from MailWasher, but highlighting a picture or music and hitting "SEND" in the explorer defaults to Windows Live Mail. Yes, the Europeans are planning to sue them about it, like they did about them making IE the default. Eudora still works fine in W7, and has handled stationery just fine for about 20 years. Except for W7 not allowing it as a default SEND program, it works just fine on W7. Thunderbird and many other email programs also work fine on W7, as long as you start them from an icon or call them from MailWasher. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Rosa for this story: Years ago while attending a dinner party hosted by some friends of mine the hostess served a meal with this delicious mushroom sauce. After the meal there was a small amount left over and the hostess decided to allow her pregnant cat to enjoy the treat as well as the guests. The guests all felt it was a great gesture and showed the cat was a member of the family. The sauce was the highlight of the evenings topic of conversation, everyone commented on how delicious it was, and the hostess beamed at all the compliments. One of the guest commented that toadstools were much like mushrooms except for being toxic, and how funny it would be is such a culinary treat were made from that instead. As if on cue, the pet cat started crying and squirming on the floor, clutching its belly. The hostess exclaimed, "Oh my God, it's the mushroom sauce!" We all went to the emergency room in a mad rush, and had our stomachs pumped after telling them we had eaten poisonous mushrooms. This was an extremely unpleasant experience. We we got back, the cat was lying on the floor peacefully looking up at us, and had given birth to kittens.
Daily tip from Use a Window Fan To Cool Home To keep your house comfy and save money on electricity during summertime, buy an exhaust fan that you can easily mount/dismount in one of your windows. Use two cheap thermometers, or just use your senses, to check whether outside temps are lower than inside. When the outside temp is lower than inside, turn on the exhaust fan. It will expel warm air and cool air must then enter to replace it. You must have at least one other window or door open. Stand in front of it and enjoy. By tomatohanger from Canton, OH Buy a louvred barn exhaust fan with sturdy aluminum louvres to maintain good security. Those barn fans also usually have strong metal mosquito screens keeping bugs and birds out, plus, when the fan is not running, the metal louvres fall shut. They are fairly cheap, but don't go too big or powerful! half Horsepower should be the absolute maximum, but a quarter HP is usually plenty. If you need fast cooling, for example when you et home from work, hang a blanket onto the opposite window, where you pull in fresh air from the shady side, and connect an aquarium pump to a mister spray, that will spray a very fine mist of water onto the outside of the blanket. Ideally, the blanket should not drip, and all the mist should be evaporated. The system will take all the necessary evaporation heat, 625 calories per gram of water, from the air, that gets pulled through the blanket or curtain. This trick works very well in reasonably dry climates, but not so well in damp, muggy areas. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

I boarded the train and took my seat. The seat next to me was empty, but not for long. A young mother boarded with her 5-year-old daughter and Mom sat down in the seat beside me. I offered my seat to the little girl but Mom said no, she'd sit the young one on her lap. So here I am holding my roses, now with a little lady straining to see what I was holding. "What ya got, mister?" she asked. (Mom is getting a bit flustered and tells her to mind her business.) I leaned the "package" over a bit and she looks and says loudly, "Ohhhh, ROSES!, who are they for?" (Now, Mom is embarrassed and tapping her on the rear telling her to sit down.) I said, "they're for my girlfriend". The little 5 year old said, again with a loud, piercing voice: "WOW, pretty RED ones, and a LOT of them, too! Man, you really must have f****d up!" Her mother turned as red as the roses, but all the other passengers bust a gut laughing.

An Irishman's wife calls the doctor, stating that her husband has taken ill. The doctor asks if she had taken his temperature; she replied that she hadn't but would and then call back. When she hadn't called within a half hour, the doctor called and asked her what had happened. She said, "Well, I didn't have a thermometer, so I put a barometer on his chest and it said dry, so I gave him a pint of beer and he went off to work!"
