Hi Webby, I am impressed with the prices of the ink cartridges 
for my printer From Atlantic.  Thank you for that info.  
Can you please tell me if there are duty charges from the 
US border crossing when I pick them up?  It mentions we are 
responsible for that, but I donít rem you talking about it, or 
how costly it is.  
Thanks for your help & info. 
TC, Betty

Dear Betty
On small orders Canada Post just lets them slip through, 
on large ones you pay the 5% GST, as if you had bought
the toner downtown. Duty is the same as GST.

In Socialist provinces you may have to pay additional 
provincial sales tax, but you are used to that anyway.
Here in Alberta, where there is no provincial extortion,
it's just the 5% GST/Duty, and if that is below a secret
threshold, the Post Office won't bother figuring it out and
let it slide through free.

Two toners for my DELL 13020c slide through free. On
Monday I expect a shipment of three toners, that I ordered
on Thursday, and I have a hunch, they will slide through for
free too.

So I get 10% off for EarthWeek with the EARTH2012
coupon, free shipping donated by Atlantic Inkjet
and no GST, thanks to my good friends at the Post Office.

That is why I have bought ink and toner from Atlantic Inkjet 
for over a dozen years.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Stacey Ann Ortiz, 34, Port St. Lucie, Florida Jailed After Attacking Boyfriend Because He Refused To Have Sex With Her right now Stacey Ann Ortiz, a 34-year-old Port St. Lucie resident was jailed after she attacked her boyfriend because he refused to have sex with her. According to Port St. Lucie County Police, Ortiz and her boyfriend were drinking at a friend's house when they decided to call it a night and head home. When Ortiz hinted that she was in the mood for a a little something-something, her boyfriend rejected the idea and stated that would rather relax and watch television instead. That's when Ortiz launched a physical attack on her boyfriend. Investigators say the boyfriend attempted to run away, but Ortiz chased him down the street while he was wearing only underwear and a cel phone. The victim was able to call 911. When officers arrived, they noted that the boyfriend had several minor abrasions, including a cut on his forehead and scratches on his chest. Ortiz reportedly told investigators that she and her boyfriend's argument was only verbal at first, but claimed that he head-butted her, which turned it into a physical fight. She admitted to using a metal mop handle to break the windshield of the victim's truck, and to chasing him down the street because she was angry. Ortiz was booked into the St. Lucie County Jail and charged with domestic battery. She was released on her own recognizances, and is due to appear in court on May 8th.
Tech Support Pits: From: Elaine Re: Copy files from a certain date Dear Webby, you mentioned copying files from a set date on. How do you do that in Windows 7? Elaine Dear Elaine Open the File Explorer, browse to the directory, where those files are, and click on DATE on top, to sort them by date. Doing that in XP is pretty well instant, but in W7, if there are a lot of files in there, will take some time. If it is for example a folder with all the embedded and attached pictures, go clean out the coffee machine and the counter, while Windows is doing that. When you come back, sometimes it has done it, other times you have to click on DATE again and go do more chores. Eventually, the files are sorted by date, and you can highlight the date range that you want and copy or move or delete them. If you are in a hurry, go up a level, so that you see the name of that folder, highlight it, SHIFT Rightclick to get the advanced menu, select OPEN DOS COMMAND PROMPT HERE. That gives you the scary black DOS screen and a prompt telling you what directory you are in. Type color 9e that gives you a dark blue screen with yellow text. Then type xcopy *.* x:\folder\subfolder /D:m-d-y The *.* means ALL files that qualify Instead of x:\folder\subfolder you put the destination, where you want the files copied to. /D:m-d-y is the date For files after April 10, 2010 you would use /D:04-10-2010 If you use just /D, with no specidic date, then the Xcopy command copies only those files, that are newer at the source than at the destination. You can probably imagine how that trick makes backing up really fast! It does not bother with the 3 Million files, that you already got on the back-up drive, and just copies the 7 new files. To see all the handy "Switches" for the Xcopy command, type xcopy /? yeah, WOW! We had that since the days of DOS-3, long before the first Windows, but most of us kept it a secret from the mousers. You can note the switches, that you want and write a bat that has them built in. You can write bats with any clean text editor, and save them into the c:\Windows directory. Here is one I wrote when you were still jailbait: xx.bat @echo off xcopy %1 %2 /D /E /C /H /R /K /Y /Z echo === copied %1 to %2 pause I'll explain what each line does: @echo off tells it to NOT echo each command onto the screen. You already know what it does, since you wrote it. xcopy %1 %2 takes source and destination from your command line input If you type xx c:\noise\wav\*.* f:\sounds\new\wav then the bat takes c:\noise\wav\*.* as %1 and f:\sounds\new\wav as %2. After that it applies the list of conditional switches /D /E /C /H /R /K /Y /Z Whatever source or destination you specify, the xx.bat will always use those conditional switches. Then it tells you, what it has done, and asks you to hit the ANY key, after you have seen that message. You can, of course, "hardwire" source and destination for frequent backups, for example xwav.bat (saved to the Windows folder) @echo off xcopy c:\noise\wav\*.* f:\sounds\new\wav /D /E /C /H /R /K /Y /Z echo === copied c:\noise\wav\*.* f:\sounds\new\wav pause After you have saved the xwav.bat, make a desktop shortcut to it. Whenever you click that, it will back up all your wavs and ask you to hit the ANY key, when it is done. By the way, if you don't like the yellow on blue screen, type color /? and get a list of the color names. Have FUN! DearWebby

While talking with my semi-deaf uncle one evening, I noticed that his "hearing aid" was actually an earphone from a transistor radio. The wire had been cut and was sticking into his shirt. "How does that help your hearing?" I asked. "Don't help my hearing none," he replied. "Makes people talk louder."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Envelopes From Magazines I have done this for years. Our library has magazines in their bookstore for a quarter each. After I read them, I make envelopes from the most colorful pages and tear out all the cologne ads (woman's magazines) that have the scent under the flap. When I am ready to mail a handmade card or letter I lift the tab on the scent and rub it on the inside of my magazine made envelope. Makes it a pleasant surprise for the recipient. There are several envelope templates for downloading on the web available for free. The larger the magazine pages, the more choices you have for your envelope size. I have also used maps and old sheet music. You will need to add a label for the address. I use my return address sticker to seal the envelope in the back. Food, art, garden, travel, and animal magazines have some great photos. Source: My idea as far as using the scents. Envelopes from magazines have been around for some time.

>From Phil: While riding the bus, my mother noticed a young man, who was holding onto the same pole, staring at her. Eventually, he said, "Excuse me. This is my stop." Since she wasn't blocking his way, she was confused. "Well," she said,"go ahead." "And this is my pole," he said. My mother was completely perplexed until the young man added, "I just bought it at the hardware store to hold up my shower curtain." And with that, he picked up his pole and carried it off the bus.

Two paramedics were dispatched to check on a 92-year-old man who had become disoriented. They decided to take him to the hospital for evaluation. En route, with siren going, they questioned the man to determine his level of awareness. Leaning close, one paramedic asked, "Sir, do you know what we're doing right now?" The old man slowly looked up at him, then gazed out the ambulance window. He slowly turned back to the paramedic and said, "Oh, I'd say about 50, maybe 55."
