Good Morning,  !

Today is Friday, March 2
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!



Today I got the results of the MUGA test. My left heart 
chamber works at 45% efficiency. 50% would be 
the theoretical maximum per chamber.

The next step is to wear a Holter monitor connected
to a dozen or so EKG contacts stuck to me. It is basically
a hard drive, that records eletrical activity of the heart,
instead of just displaying and forgetting it like an EKG
monitor. 

Have FUN!

Thanks to Belinda for this one: I did my nurse's training at a hospital in Liverpool, England. My fellow students and I had little money for meals, so we ate the awful food provided at the hospital complex. We often took our breaks in the kitchen, and sometimes kindly visitors would give us some of the treats they had brought for patients. One night a woman brought a pork pie to the kitchen and said to me, "Would you eat this up, love?" Delighted at the offer, another student and I devoured every crumb. Soon our benefactor returned, however, and asked, "Is me 'usband's pie 'ot yet, dearie?"

On her way back from the concession stand, Nancy asked the man at the end of the row, "Sir, did I step on your foot a minute ago?" Expecting an apology the man said, "Indeed you did." Nancy nodded. "Oh, good. Then this is my row."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Sarah Walker, Shane Walker, and Robert Aucker (the dog's name is not known) Trio jailed after using Craigslist to find dog for sex Phoenix, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) - A married couple and the woman's open-marriage boyfriend were arrested Monday after they allegedly used Craigslist to find a dog for the woman to have sex with. Married couple Sarah Dae Walker, 33, and Shane Walker, 38 were jailed after they allegedly posted an ad on Craigslist looking for a dog that Sarah Walker could have sex with. Police also arrested 29-year-old Robert Aucker, who is Sarah Walker's extra-marital partner. According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's office, all three subjects admitted to using Craigslist to find a dog for Sarah to have sexual intercourse with while the two males watched. Investigators say the trio drove to a prearranged location where the alleged sexual encounter was set to take place. The suspects didn't know, however, that they had been talking to an undercover officer who pretended to be the dog's owner. Aucker told deputies that he and Mrs. Walker had been involved in a sexual relationship for about a month when Sarah told him she had a desire to have sex with a dog. Sarah and Shane Walker emailed back and forth with detectives for three weeks, discussing the encounter and making arrangements. All three suspects were booked into the Maricopa County Jail and charged with conspiracy to commit bestiality.
Tech Support Pits: From: Olga Re: Are cookies safe now? Dear Webby Please settle an argument for us: Are cookies safe nowadays? I know that 15 years ago cookies stored all kinds of private data, that was available to any hacker, who got access to the machine. Is that still the case? Olga Dear Olga If you are a part time terrorist or into child porno, then cookies can contribute to messing up your career. However, if you are on the safe side of the law, then you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Today's cookies work FOR you. Actually, they have for quite a few years. For example, if you have an awkward rigmarole to get from your passworded sign-in to your bank statements, cookies can streamline that. Without the passworded sign-in, they are useless, but for YOU they get you where you normally go to. The same applies to shopping at any site. A cookie can remind the browser, along with it's history, and the site's shopping cart history, to get you to the department where you normally go to. There is no point in getting paranoid about a site remembering that you normally buy a certain type of wool, or a certain size of underwear. You are going to buy more of the same anyway, and as long as you don't become a terrorist, nobody but you benefits from the cookies. Let the cookies work for you! You also have to keep in mind, many sites DO require that you allow cookies. Most banks are set up that way. Also most phone companies and many electrical companies. The same goes for forums. They need the cookies to authenticate you, and to get you to the particular forum, that you normally go to. At my bank, for example, I can't get beyond the sign-in page if I don't allow cookies. They store the "Password OK" signal in a cookie, and that is my passport to get deeper into the site. If I go refill my coffee, that cookie expires and I have to sign in again. Cookies are also passports to temporary savings. If you go to a site, that has a onde day only special discount, but somehow get booted off or the site or your connection is too slow to complete the sale, the cookie will remember. It will act like a rain-check and will let you get the special discount. So don't worry about cookies. Enable them. Let them work FOR you. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Rolodex for Genealogy Research Use a Rolodex for organizing family history or genealogy. Each card will have one ancestor on it, with the basic information listed to save time when doing a search. This idea also works for quick reference for doctors, attorneys and address with billing info on them. By fossil1955 from Cortez, CO 30 years ago I would have agreed. But then came computers and spreadsheets. Spreadsheets have lightning fast searches, and you can have cross-links from any cell to any other cells. Nowadays spreadsheets are 3-dimensional. Think of them as a tall stack of spreadsheets. You can have links "drilling down" through the stack, or have detail info about Ugly Mugly, one of my ancestors in the stone age, buried in a layer deep down, but linked to a cell in the cover sheet. You hit that link, and the details pop up. Spreadsheets also do any type of calculation you want. You can do time lines and instantly see that great-aunt Bernice could not have been messing around with Napoleon. Each spot on the time line can link to details hidden in deeper layers. Another benefit of spreadsheets is that you can upload them, download them into another computer and continue there, or email a layer to somebody, to fill in details about the Kentucky branch of your ancestors. It will take you an evening of playing to get used to spreadsheets, and years later, you will still find "Easter Eggs" and tricks, you had not even dreamed off. Have FUN!

A widow recently married a widower. Soon after the marriage she was accosted by a friend who laughingly remarked - "I suppose, like all men who have been married before, your husband sometimes talks about his first wife?" "Oh, not any more, he doesn't," the other replied. "What stopped him?" "I started talking about my next husband."

An effusive client brought a litter of golden-retriever puppies to my veterinary clinic for inoculations and worming. She loved them so much, she couldn't keep from remarking about their cute habits. As the look-alike pups squirmed over and under one another in their box, I realized it would be difficult to tell the treated ones from the rest. I turned on the water faucet, wet my fingers, and moistened each dog's head when I had finished. After the fourth puppy, I noticed my hitherto talkative client had grown silent. As I sprinkled the last pup's head, the woman leaned forward and whispered, "I never realized they had to be baptized."
