Good Morning,  !

Today is Tuesday, January 24

The days are getting noticeably longer. That always makes
the child in me happy. As a kid I was always told to 
"Go play outside", which meant playing outside until it got too
dark and somebody yelled. In summer that meant first an 
hour of weeding before free playiong, but in wwinter, once
I had spaded over the entire garden, all play was free style.

Therefore, more minutes of daylight meant more minutes 
of play before going inside and doing homework! 
I don't remember ever doing homework by natural light.

When I was old enough, so that I could ride my mom's
bicycle, just standing on the pedals, with the seat poking
me into the neck, I used to bicycle to Switzerland to bring
back sugar. It was exported to Switzerland with some
subsidy and sold there for less, than what it cost in Austria.
That left a nice profit margin for an enterprising kid!

After a year of that I started borrowing dads bicycle. That 
meant standing on the pedals kinda crooked because of
the horizontal bar, but dad's bike was a THREE SPEED!
I was FLYING with that bike! 

It must have looked hilarious, but I enjoyed it!

Have FUN!

First thing - every single morning - one of the secretaries in our office opened the newspaper and read everyone's horo- scope aloud. "Gwen," said our boss finally, "you seem to be a normal, levelheaded person. Do you really believe in astrology?" "Of course not," Gwen answered. "You know how skeptical we Capricorns are."

Ralph was driving home one evening and realized that it was his daughter's birthday and he hadn't bought her a present. He drove to the mall and ran to the toy store and he asked the store manager, "How much is that new Barbie in the window?" The Manager replied, "Which one? We have Barbie goes to the gym for $19.95, Barbie goes to the Ball for $19.95, Barbie goes shopping for $19.95, Barbie goes to the beach for $19.95, Barbie goes to the Nightclub for $19.95, and Divorced Barbie for $375.00." "Why is the Divorced Barbie $375.00 when all the others are $19.95 ?", Ralph asked surprised. The Manager replies, "Well, Divorced Barbie comes with Ken's car, Ken's House, Ken's boat, Ken's dog, Ken's cat and Ken's furniture."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Kaitlyn Campbell, 20, Grand Forks, North Dakota Dopey mom and babbling kid After North Dakota cops pulled over a vehicle and recognized the strong odor of pot, the driver’s four-year-old daughter gave officers the lowdown on the ownership of drug paraphernalia found in the car. "That’s mommy’s," the girl said in reference to a glass marijuana pipe that police found in the auto’s back seat (where she was seated with her one-year-old brother). The child then added, "Mommy smokes weed all the time," according to a Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Office report. Kaitlyn Campbell, 20, was charged with felony child endangerment and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia in connection with the traffic stop last Thursday. A passenger in the 2007 Chevrolet Malibu was hit with the same charges (and a drug possession count after she claimed ownership of pot found in the car). Campbell, pictured in the above mug shot, is currently free on bail. She is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on February 27.
Tech Support Pits: From: Horace Re: Hot Key Dear Webby, That CTRL ALT Z hotkey to toggle the sound off and on is absolutely brilliant! Can you create me something, that will add the content of the clipboard, what I just typed and and/or copied, to a text file, from which I can later put it into a spreadsheet or doc, without having that text file open and visible to everybody? Sounds confusing, but I am sure you can figure out what I mean. Thanks Horace Dear Horace That is actually a very common and much used concept. A program like that is usually called a "logger", because it creates a raw log of ideas or info. I remember writing one of those with a bat in the days of DOS, long before Windows. Same as with yesterday's tip, Go to my Tool Box and grab NirCMD. It is just below the Instant EyeDropper. Right-click it and choose Save link As. That way YOU can tell it, where you want to save the zip-file to. It is very small. The only reason it is zipped up is because it includes a help file. After you unzip it, hit the nircmd.exe. It will offer to copy itself to the Windows folder. Yes, please. Now that you are armed and dangerous, Right-click on the desktop and choose New \ Shortcut Here is where we do something different from yesterday. Let's assume, your raw log file is c:\IDE\rawlog.txt Type or paste into the location box: nircmd.exe clipboard addfile "c:\IDE\rawlog.txt" Hit next and for the nickname, use Logger Now right-click the new icon, and in it's properties, put the cursor into the Short-Cut Key slot, hold down CTRL. It will show CTRL + ALT + type L (or some suitable key) and hit Apply, OK. Now hit CTRL ALT L Windows will procrastinate and snivel about whether you really want it to do what you told it to do. YES, dammiit! And don'd ask me about it ever again! After that, when you hit CTRL ALT L, whatever you have copied and have in the clipboard, is added to rawlog.txt. Like any decent logger, it does it silently, without any beeps or squawks. You can make an additional shortcut, with it's own hot-key, to copy the contents of that file into the clipboard, ready to paste into any spreadsheet or doc or other file. The command for that is nircmd.exe clipboard readfile "c:\IDE\rawlog.txt" If you rename rawlog.txt to for example Jan24log.txt, the CTRL ALT L will create a fresh rawlog.txt when you use it again the next day. Have FUN! DearWebby

At the height of a political corruption trial, the prosecuting attorney attacked a witness. "Isn't it true," he bellowed, "that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?" The witness stared out the window, as though he hadn't hear the question. "Isn't it true that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?" the lawyer repeated. The witness still did not respond. Finally, the judge leaned over and said, "Sir, please answer the question." "Oh," the startled witness said, "I thought he was talking to you. I've never seen that big a pile of money in my whole life."

While I was working in the men's section of a department store, a woman asked me to help her choose a white dress shirt for her husband. When I asked about his size, the woman had to stop and think for a minute. Then her face brightened. She held up her hands, forming a circle with her forefingers and thumbs, and said, "I don't know his size, but my hands fit perfectly around his neck."

Little Johnny was left to fix lunch. When his mother returned with a friend, she noticed that Johnny had already strained the tea. The two women then sipped their tea happily while having lunch. "Was it hard finding the tea strainer in the kitchen?" Johnny's mother asked. "I couldn't find it Ma, so I used the fly swatter," he replied. His mother nearly fainted, so Johnny hastily added: "Don't get excited, Ma, I used the old one!"

A veterinarian was feeling ill and went to see his doctor. The doctor asked him all the usual questions, about symptoms, how long had they been occurring, etc., when the veterinarian interrupted him, saying, "Hey look, I'm a vet - I don't need to ask my patients these kind of questions. I can tell what's wrong just by checking and looking. Why can't you?" The doctor nodded, looked him up and down, wrote out a prescription, and handed it to him and said, "There you are. Of course, if *that* doesn't work, we'll have to have you put down."
