Problems with wide monitor

Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, April 11

Thank you John B!

I went to the Dollar Store to get coffee filters, and as usual,
had a quick look around. There are always some chuckles.
Today's chuckle was a USB powered keyboard vaccuum cleaner.
I din't buy it, of course. Since I stopped smoking over a 
year ago, my keyboard does not need daily vacuuming any more,
but it was funny to see a little USB powered vacuum cleaner
priced at $1.

Have FUN!

Thanks to Walter, the Stonecarver from http://stonecarver.com for this story: A minister in a little church announced from the pulpit, "Now, before we pass the collection plate, I would like to request that the person who stole the chickens from Brother Martin's hen house please refrain from giving any money to the Lord. The Lord doesn't want money from a thief." That week for the first time in months, everyone gave.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Tammy Roseman, 40, in Vero beach, Florida Naked and drunk again VERO BEACH, Fla. (UPI) -- Florida authorities say a woman offered them no good explanation for her being naked in a parked car. An Indian River County deputy sheriff found Tammy Roseman "au naturel" in the front seat of her boyfriend's car while investigating a disturbance in Vero Beach on the afternoon of March 23. "I inquired why she was in a parked vehicle without any clothes at this time of day," a report states. She could offer no explanation. The investigator deduced alcohol probably had something to do with the situation and busted her for disorderly intoxication. Roseman's boyfriend told deputies the nudity didn't begin in the car. He said he came home earlier in the day and found her naked, drunk and busting up the place. The TC Palm said the arrest was not the first for the 40-year-old Roseman that involved public exposure. She was busted last year for allegedly dropping her pants as a school bus full of elementary kids passed by, and another time for walking in front of a busy mall showing off her breasts.
Tech Support Pits: From: Rose Re: Problem with wide (sawed off) monitor I have a new Dell monitor. My pictures and games are all too wide. How can I change the settings to make them normal. Rose Dear Rose Sounds like you chose to disregard my suggestions, and selected a "sawed off" monitor, that has the bottom third missing. They DO sell 4:3 monitors at DELL, for example the Dell UltraSharp 2007FP 20.1'' LCD Monitor, but you can find a lot better deals from other companies. If you choose to keep the "sawed off" monitor, you will just have to get used to the bottom third sawed off. Lots of people got used to that. Just set the resolution to the best your computer and your monitor can handle, and get used to not having that bottom third. If you look for 4:3 monitors at Pricegrabber, you can find some beautiful monitors at surprisingly low cost. I bought my 1600 x 1200 Lenovo monitor there a few years ago for $199, and am VERY happy with it. By the way, with monitors don't hesitate to buy "Refurb" units. They are usually returns because they were too large and would not fit into somebody's hutch desk, or some other silly reason. They will be just like brand new, but most likely in non-standard packaging. Have FUN! DearWebby

Taxiing down the tarmac, the jet abruptly stopped, turned around and returned to the gate. After an hour long wait, it finally took off. A concerned passenger asked the flight attendant, "What was the problem?" "The pilot was bothered by a noise he heard in the engine," she explained. "It's OK now. It just took a while to find a pilot who is deaf."

Liz goes to her first show at an art gallery and is looking at the paintings. One is a huge canvas that has black with yellow blobs of paint splattered all over it. The next painting is a murky gray color that has drips of purple paint streaked across it. Liz walks over to the artist and says, "I don't understand your paintings." "I paint what I feel inside me," explains the artist. "Have you ever tried Alka-Seltzer?"
