Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, September 21

Thank you Jim!

Have a look where the sun rises and where it sets today and
in the next two days. Those directions are precisely East 
and West. In case you ever set up a sun dial, you will
need to know those directions. The astronomer's theoretical
equinox is not until the 23rd, but the farmers say it is on 
the 21st, and that after the 21st the nights are longer than 
the days.

Have FUN!

"No one appreciates the value of constructive criticism more thoroughly than the one who's giving it." --- Hal Chadwick
From Kathy: For our flight to the Far East, my wife and I checked in at the Korean Air counter at Los Angeles International Airport. As the smiling Korean woman processed our tickets, my wife asked, "Are they good seats?" "They are very good seats," the airline worker replied. "You will be sitting next to a handsome gentleman, and your com- panion will be seated beside a beautiful lady."

A man in a hurry taking his 8-year-old son to school, made a turn at a red light where it was prohibited. "Uh-oh, I just made an illegal turn!" the man said. "Aw, Dad, it's okay" the son said. "The police car right behind us did the same thing."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Police and the City of South Pasadena, California Fined for good deed SOUTH PASADENA (CBS) Weve all heard the saying: no good deed goes unpunished . . . and thats exactly what happened to a South Pasadena resident who was issued a ticket by police for his charitable act. When a major traffic light in the area went out again Thursday morning, Alan Ehrlich took matters into his own hands, directing traffic at Fair Oaks and Huntington avenues. I grabbed a bright orange shirt that I have and a couple of orange safety flags. I took it upon myself to help get motorists through that intersection faster, said Ehrlich. Before Ehrlich stepped in, traffic was backed up for more than a mile and it took more than 30 minutes to get through the busy intersection. Ehrlich said the Sept. 8 incident wasnt the first and that the light goes out regularly. It was just kind of chaos of cars . . . there were stop signs up. But people were challenging each other to get through the intersection, said Richard Gerrish who works at an office located at the intersection. Gerrish said Ehrlich cleared up the mess in 10 minutes. After 15 minutes, South Pasadena police say they finally responded to the scene and told Ehrlich to stop and issued him a ticket, but never stepped into direct traffic themselves. I dont know if this ticket is $50 or $400 dollars. Its a small price to pay for the greater good, Ehrlich said. South Pasadena Police Chief Joe Payne said he did not have the man power needed to staff officers at Fair Oaks and Huntington Thursday and that is safer to allow traffic to back up. We have limited resources . . . we need to prioritize them. One of the major intersections out at rush hour in our city should be a priority, Ehrlich added. He already has plans to address the matter at an upcoming city council meeting. Police and the city of South Pasadena say they currently have no plans to change any procedures.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Dianne Re: Disconnect router to stop abuse re WiFi safety: shutting ones computer down will not stop the hijacking of wi-fi you need to shut off the ROUTER or MODEM. If you just shut off your computer your wi-fi still works because your computer is a separate entity to the actual wi-fi network. Dianne Thanks Dianne! Yes, if you use a wireless router and set it up without passwords, then other people within range can indeed use it, and even give you a bad name. If you don't password your network, turn your router or modem off, when you are not using it. Have FUN! DearWebby

WASHINGTON (UPI) -- The U.S. Census Bureau marked Unmarried and Single Americans Week by revealing 43.6 percent of U.S. adults over 18 were unmarried in 2010, including those who have been divorced or widowed -- at the time of the census. The figures stated 61 percent of those who were unmarried had never been married while 23.8 percent were divorced and 14.4 percent were widowed. The Census Bureau said there were 88 unmarried U.S. men for every 100 unmarried U.S. women at the time of last year's census. They predict, that playing hard to get is going to go out of fashion in the very near future.

Thanks to Carolyn for this story: After booking my 80-year-old grandmother on a flight from Florida to Nevada, I called the airline to go over her special needs. The representative listened patiently as I requested a wheelchair and an attendant for my mother because of her arthritis and impaired vision to the point of near blindness. My apprehension lightened a bit when the woman assured me that everything would be taken care of. I thanked her profusely. "Oh, you're welcome," she replied. I was about to hang up when she cheerfully asked, "And will your grandmother need a rental car?"
