Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, Aug 21

Thank you, Rose!

If one was to believe all the reports coming out of California,
this might be a good time to back up all your data onto Mozy,
pack up your keepsakes and go for a camping trip to the

Steaming hills, petrochemical smells on the beaches, 
and tens of thousands of micro-tremors, all combine 
to give the predictionists and alarmists reasons to grab 
significant amounts of news time.

Keep in mind, though, this time of year is called the
"Silly Season" by traditional media, because the politicians
are on vacation and not doing anything stupid or newsworthy,
so anything that fills space will be printed.

I even remember reading a Science Fiction novel called
"Silly Season" in the late 70's, where Aliens took advantage
of that, and managed to get quite well established before
anybody took news of their invasion serious.

Have FUN!

Thanks to Mary for this: I have always dreaded old age. I cannot imagine anything worse than being old. How awful it must be to have nothing to do all day long but stare at the walls or watch TV? So last week, when somebody suggested we all celebrate Senior Citizen Week by cheering up a senior citizen, I decided to do just that. I would call on my new neighbor, an elderly retired gentleman, recently widowed, and who, I presumed, had moved in with his married daughter because he was too old to take care of himself. I baked a batch of cookies, and, without bothering to call (some old people cannot hear the phone), I went off to brighten this old guy's day. When I rang the doorbell this "old guy" came to the door dressed in tennis shorts and a polo shirt, looking about as ancient and decrepit as Donny Osmond. "I'm sorry I can't invite you in," he said when I introduced myself, "but I'm due at the Racquet Club at two. I'm playing in the semifinals today." "Oh that's all right," I said. "I baked you some cookies..." "Great!" he interrupted, snatching the box. "Just what I need for bridge club tomorrow! Thanks so much!" I continued, "...and just thought we'd visit a while. But that's okay! I'll just trot across the street and call on Granny Grady." "Don't bother," he said. "Gran's not home; I know. I just called to remind her of our date to go dancing tonight. She may be at the beauty shop. She mentioned at breakfast (at which house?) that she had an appointment for a tint job.". So I went home and called my Mother's cousin (age 83); she was in the hospital... working in the gift shop... I called my aunt (age 74); she was on vacation in China... I called my husband's uncle (age 79). I forgot; he was on his honeymoon. I still dread old age, now more than ever. I just don't think I'm up to it.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Evan Salas, 19, and Brandon Smith, 18 in Pinellas County, Florida Florida teens shoot 275 cars JANUARY 27--A pair of Florida teenagers arrested yesterday for damaging 275 vehicles in a BB gun shooting spree that caused in excess of $100,000 in damages told police that they carried out the vandalism because they were “bored.” Evan Salas, 19, and Brandon Smith, 18, were collared for a rampage through three cities in Pinellas County. The men, who shot up cars Friday night into Saturday morning, were each charged with felony criminal mischief, according to arrest affidavits. Salas (left) and Smith are pictured in the above mug shots. When confronted by Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office investigators, Salas and Smith reportedly copped to damaging cars and trucks in Belleair Bluffs, Largo, and Seminole. Asked why they would engage in such behavior, investigators noted, the pair explained they were “bored." According to police, Smith and Salas were both armed with newly purchased CO2-powered BB guns and took turns “randomly shooting at vehicles” from Smith’s car. Following his arrest, Smith admitted “shooting out windows of unoccupied vehicles,” according to an arrest affidavit. Salas made a similar confession, admitting his involvement with “35% to 40% of the shooting.” Both men were booked Wednesday into the county jail.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Lindsay Re: Internet Explorer stops working Dear Webby, Love your newsletter, reading it from side-to-side & top-to-bottom. I've noticed you have solved some concerns for other people, so I thought I'd ask some advice for myself. I have a laptop computer upon which I keep getting a pop-up message stating: "Internet Explorer" has stopped working. Windows will try to fix the problem. So far windows has not been successful, and without the Internet Explorer, I cannot send email's and I cannot play my favorite games, and...well, I can't really do much of anything on my laptop. I've searched and several times I thought I had fixed the problem, but no luck. I thought you might be able to help me. Thanks for considering this problem...keep the newsletter coming! MaryLou Dear MaryLou That sounds like a typical W7 feature. Internet Explorer seems to be not quite compatible with it. It works OK on some sites, but not enough of them to make it practical and usable. For example, it works OK on the online page of the Humor Letter, but miserably fails at the Internet Frog speed test. Just use FireFox. Even an old version of FireFox, like 3.5, works better and quite reliable. It gets along just fine with Gmail and you will never see that silly message again. Have FUN! DearWebby

Overheard in the elevator: And then she said... "I was worried that my mechanic might try to rip me off. I was soo relieved when he told me that all I needed was blinker fluid. Naturally, I got the organic, biodegradable kind, even though it was a bit more expensive."
Daily tip from Wash Shower Curtain with Clips Attached I used to hate washing my shower curtain. Undoing all those clips at the top, what a bore! One day, I took the entire curtain, clips and all, and threw it in the washing machine on delicate. What a time saver! No damage was done to the curtain and I saved so much time and aggravation.

A young woman, two months pregnant, went to see her obstetrician. He was in a hurry to leave on an emergency call, so he asked her to quickly bare her stomach, then reached into his desk and took out a rubber stamp, which he pressed beside her navel. Then he rushed off. At home, she and her husband tried to read the tiny words printed on her belly, but they were too small. They then found a magnifying glass and tried to read the words; the stamp read: "When your husband can read this without his glasses, it's time for the next check-up."

The Irish priest was at the altar one dreary Sunday morning, addressing his congregation with a vehement sermon that alcohol was the work of the devil. "As an example," he stated during his sermon, "If you were to lead a donkey to a bowl of water and a bowl of whiskey, from which would he drink?" A grizzled old Mick at the back of the church spoke up: "Aye, Father, for sure he'd drink from the water." The priest, elated, said, "Very good, my son. And can you tell me WHY he'd drink from the water?" The Irishman at the back of the church replied, "Sure I can tell ye' why, Father. Because he's an ass and not an Irishman."
