Good Morning,  !
Today is Tuesday, February 28

Ezinefinder seems to be working again!

Wednesday I have to make a trip to Calgary for a "MUGA" test.
It is only 60 miles and the weather is supposed to be nice.

For that test, you sit on a bench in a hallway for 45 minutes, 
Then they give you one of those thilly open back gowns
and you have to lie down on some high bed for 45 minutes,
Or longer. Then they shoot you up with some dye and you
have to wait some more. 

Eventually they strap you into some big machine, pull your 
arms way up and back and lock you in that position. Then
they adjust the machine, which looks like an MRI machine 
with all parts hydraulicly adjustable. When they got it just 
right, a buzzer sounds and everybody runs away, as if they
expect the contraption to blow up.

After about 45 minutes in that uncomfortable position, 
they cautiously come back, drive the parts of the machine 
closest to you out of the way and drive it back, so that 
they can untie you and let you get up.

Then you get your shirt and jacket back, and a voucher for
the parking lot. Eventually you will then find out what 
percentage of optimal your heart works at.

If they explained what all the different parts of that huge 
machinery do, it would probably be quite interesting!

Have FUN!

Thanks to David for this one: I thought of your column when I saw this: The Longest Password We laugh -- but her I.D. is safe. During a recent password audit by Google, it was found that someone was using the following password: "MickeyMinniePlutoHueyLouieDeweyDonaldGoofySacramento" When asked why she had such a long password, she rolled her eyes and said: "Hello! It has to be at least 8 characters long and include at least one capital." David in Minneapolis

A wife went to the police station with her next-door neighbor to report that her husband was missing. The policeman asked for a description. She said, "He's 35 years old, 6 foot 4, had dark eyes, dark wavy hair, an athletic build, weighs 185 pounds, is soft-spoken, and is good to the children." The next-door neighbor protested, "Your husband is 5 foot 4 inches, chubby, bald, has a big mouth, and is mean to your children." The wife replied, "Yes, but who wants HIM back?"
Thanks to Sandie for these pictures: Click through for the large version. Sandie had lost all her investments and savings in the crash. They were supposed to pay for taxes, insurance, mortgage and utilities, until she dies. Without them, she could not afford to keep her beautiful house in Cape Coral, and had to rush to sell it, before it got foreclosed. You have seen pictures of her orchids and birds of paradise, herons, hawks and her boat lift over the years. Typical Cape Coral, her house had a street in front and canal in the back. These pictures are of Mike and Lou Ann, neighbors down the street carting away Sandie's last orchid shortly before Sandie left.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Some guy, in Fort Myers, FL Teen finds naked burglar in kitchen stealing rum FORT MYERS, Fla. -- A 14-year-old girl discovered a naked man in her kitchen stealing a bottle of Captain Morgan from the pantry Wednesday, deputies said. The girl told Lee County sheriff’s deputies she was at her home in the 6700 block of Magnolia Lane, Fort Myers, when she heard someone in the kitchen. According to Lee arrest reports, she left her bedroom, went to the kitchen, and found a 47-year-old man from Eustis naked and bent over in the pantry taking a bottle of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. Terrified, she ran back to her room where she heard him use the telephone before leaving the house. The girl’s father told deputies he was doing yard work out back when his daughter informed him there was someone in the house. Reports say the father found the man naked in his front yard. A neighbor was inside his home when his dogs began barking. According to reports, the neighbor saw the guy in the front yard and retrieved his gun. Once outside, he saw him naked in the neighbor’s front yard and detained him at gunpoint until deputies arrived. He is facing charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling and petit theft.
Tech Support Pits: From: Amy Re: Move icons unrestricted in W7 Dear Webby How do I fix it, so that I can move icons in W7 to exactly where I want them, not just to where some tyrant at Microsoft wants to put them. Thanks Amy Dear Amy To disable "align to grid", and let your desktop icons be freely moved around without alignment: Right-click on an empty area of the desktop (between two icons, not on an icon) From the desktop's context menu, choose "View" The View submenu displays a checkmark next to "Align icons to grid". take that checkmark off. Now you can put the icons where YOU want them to be. Unfortunately "Align to Microsoft's dumb and tasteless idea of icon arrangement" is the default in W7, and if you accidentally bump your mouse, while you replace the battery, or do any of the myriad things, that give W7 an excuse to revert to default, then they use that as an excuse to mess up your arrangement and trump it with theirs. So, if your icons are not where they are supposed to be, check that thilly "Align to grid" setting. A sneaky trick to get YOUR arrangement back is to use "Save My Desktop", a free little program in my Tool Box. Click that after installing new programs or shortcuts or re-arranging your desktop. One click restores it to THAT arrangement, after Windows has messed it up. Have FUN! DearWebby

An off duty police officer was driving down the road. He passed a traffic camera and saw it flash. Astounded that he had been caught speeding when he was doing the speed limit, he turned around and, going even slower, he passed by the camera. Again, he saw it flash. He couldn't believe it! So he turned and, going a snail's pace, he passed the camera. AGAIN, he saw the camera flash. He guessed it must have a fault, and home he went. A week later he received 3 traffic fines in the mail, all for not wearing a seatbelt.

Thanks to Edwina for this one: A young couple got married and left on their honeymoon. When they got back, the bride called her mother. "So," said her mother, "how was the honeymoon?" "Oh, mama," she replied, "the honeymoon was wonderful! So romantic... " Suddenly she burst out crying. "But, mama, as soon as we returned, Sam started using the most horrible language. Things I'd never heard before! I mean, all these awful 4-letter words! You've got to come get me and take me home... PLEASE MAMA!" "Sarah, Sarah," her mother said, "calm down! Tell me, what could be so awful? WHAT 4-letter words?" "Please don't make me tell you, mama," wept the daughter, "I'm so embarrassed-they're just too awful! COME GET ME, PLEASE !!! "Darling, baby, you must tell me what has you so upset... Tell your mother these horrible 4-letter words!" Still sobbing, the bride said, "Oh, mama...words like: Dust, Wash, Iron, Cook...."
