Good Morning,  !

Today is Monday, September 12

Re 9/11:
From Argentina:  When I turned the TV on and saw the planes 
flying straight into the towers, I was numbed with shock. A friend 
came home during the afternoon, and we sat and gaped at the 
screen, tears rolling down our faces, commenting now'n'then 
on something that seemed more relevant than the rest.
We could talk of nothing else for a long time!

I was frantically getting work done and at the same time 
preparing to fly to Tennessee the next day, on the 12th.
Then the radio interrupted the music and reported a passenger
plane flying into the WTC. While I was trying to hear details,
all phones and the fax got noisy, and over a dozen Skype 
messages popped. This was REAL!

There was no doubt at all, before I even had a chance to
listen to any of the callers. Then people called and told me
about a hockey player and some guys going to storm the cockpit 
of Flight 93, and shortly afterward, how they had brought it
down short of where the terrorists had planned to use it.
That was a spark of hope. 

My flight scheduled for the next day was of course canceled
by the air line. Nothing was flying on the 12th or the 13th,
and everything was messed up for the 14th. When planes flew 
again, it was quite obvious, that the world had changed.
I was the first off the plane and into the empty and echoing
terminal in Nashville. No crowds, no sound except my footsteps
and my breathing. It was eerie!

At the exit, there were the first two people I saw in Tennessee,
two soldiers in full combat gear, with machine guns at the ready.

I realized, there was not going to be a return to "as before 9/11".
We are coping, but just like Pearl Harbor changed the world,
so did 9/11.

Have FUN!

An artist asks the gallery owner if there has been any interest in his paintings that are on display. "I have good news and bad news," the owner replies. "The good news is that a gentleman inquired about your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. When I told him it would, he bought all 15 of your paintings." "That's wonderful," the artist exclaimed. "What's the bad news?" "The guy was your doctor."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Steven K. Tubbs, 25, of Fort Calhoun and Andrew Mason, 25, of Omaha From ankle bracelet to handcuffs Turns out a court-monitored ankle bracelet is not proper attire for an armed robbery. Apparently Steven K. Tubbs didn't get the memo. His fashion faux pas led to his arrest in connection with an Omaha home invasion where, prosecutors allege, Tubbs pointed a shotgun at a young couple who were sleeping with their infant son. Tubbs, 25, of Fort Calhoun and Andrew Mason, 25, of Omaha were arrested Tuesday, the day after the robbery near 106th and Blondo Streets. Prosecutor Mike Jensen said a parole officer heard the description of the men involved and thought one might be a parolee of the officer's. When the officer checked information on Tubbs' court-ordered ankle monitor, it showed him at the couple's address about the time the robbery was committed. Tubbs was charged with two counts of robbery, use of a weapon to commit a felony and possession of a weapon by a prohibited person. He was ordered held on $500,000 bail. Tubbs was on parole after serving nearly two years in prison for attempted robbery, use of a weapon to commit a felony and terroristic threats. Mason was charged with two counts of robbery and ordered held on $250,000 bail. Among the items taken from the home was an American Express credit card that was used shortly after the robbery.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: BF Re: Spreadsheet not adding up right Dear Webby When adding up columns in an old spreadsheet, I get weird results. Also, I notice that some of the numbers are not lined up the same way as the others. How can I fix that ? BF Dear BF Some of those numbers are not real numbers but just text. If there was a space in front or the back when it was pasted, then the spreadsheet treated it as text. Just highlight the cell and retype the number Have FUN! DearWebby

According to statistics, last year over 17 million American families paid a lot of money for things that looked funny and didn't work. Seven million of these were antiques; The rest were college students.
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Mayonnaise for Hair Conditioner Mayonnaise makes a very good hair conditioner at an affordable price. For shiny, silky hair, rinse with vinegar. Don't worry, the smell disappears! To strip conditioner build-up off hair, use Dawn dish soap. This works very well. Source: My sister-in-law who is a beautician. By fossil1955 from Cortez, CO http://www.thriftyfun.com/ Keep in mind that commercial mayonaise has a very rude PH, (high, acidic) on purpose, so that nothing can grow in it, and so that even old and stale sandwiches are safe. That is not going to make your hair fall out, but it can really mess up any PH related scheme you got going. If you are paying for a shampoo, that is claimed to lower or raise the PH of your hair, don't negate that with Mayonaise! Have FUN!

Two high powered executives, Gary and Bill had been called to their companys head office in New York for a pep talk and party. As they staggered out of the party, Bill started crossing the street, while Gary accidently stumbled into a subway entrance. When Bill reached the other side he turned to notice Gary emerging from the subway stairs. "Where've you been?" Bill slurred. "I don't know" replied Gary "but you should see the train set that guy has in his basement..."

A factory owner said to a store owner, "Thank you, Mr. Smith, for your patronage. I wish I had twenty customers like you." "Gosh, it's nice to hear that, but I'm kind of surprised," admitted Smith. "You know that I argue every bill and always pay late." The factory owner said, "I'd still like twenty customers like you. The problem is, I have two hundred on the deadbeat list."

In a small town in the US, there is a rather sizable factory that hires only married men. Concerned about this, a local woman called on the manager and asked him, "Why is it you limit your employees to married men? Is it because you think women are weak, dumb, cantankerous...or what?" "Not at all, Ma'am," the manager replied. "It is because our employees are used to obeying orders, are accustomed to being shoved around, know how to keep their mouths shut, and don't pout when I yell at them."
