Good Morning,  !
Today is Saturday, May 19

I have been looking for a source of modern history, but it
seems, history stopped with the Millenium change.
There are odd facts here and there, but no concise collection,
that I can find. If you know of a site with usable information,
please let me know!

Have FUN!

A man and a woman are driving down the highway when another car passes them. The woman notices that the occupants of the other car are young and obviously in love. The girl is sitting very close to her boyfriend as they cruise down the highway. This causes the woman to think back when she and her husband were young and in love, and wondering where the show of affection had disappeared to over the years. Finally she says to her husband, "Remember when we used to be like that young couple? Where did the love go, honey?" Her question was met with a few moments of pensive thought, while he looked at his gnarled hands on the steering wheel. Then he replied, "I don't know, but I haven't moved."

Nancy went in to see a therapist and said, "I've got a big problem, doctor." "Every time we're in bed and my husband climaxes, he lets out this earsplitting yell." "My dear," the doctor said, "that's completely natural. I don't see what the problem is." "The problem is," Nancy complained, "It wakes me up!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Alexandra Watkins, 23, in Hillsboro, Oregon Slow Learner - Jailed After Toddler Found Wandering Alone Twice In Same Week Alexandra Watkins, a 23-year-old Oregon woman has been jailed after her 2-year-old daughter was found wandering along a busy road wearing nothing but a diaper - Twice in the same week! According to police, Watkins was arrested on Monday after a bus driver found the toddler wandering beside a busy road wearing only a diaper. Deputies tracked down the toddler's mother at a nearby apartment complex and charged her with child neglect. The child was placed with a family member while Watkins was in jail. Watkins regained custody of the child on Tuesday after she was released from jail. On Wednesday, the little girl was found wandering alone again - this time by somebody, who was out riding a bicycle. This time, deputies knew where they could find the child's mother. Watkins was booked into jail and charged with a second count of child neglect. Her bail has been set at $5,000.
Tech Support Pits: From: Maggie RE: How to set up Screen Savers Dear Webby, I agree that those third party screen savers are atrocious! That is why they keep pestering you, once they got your address. Luckily I got MailWasher and can nuke their BS on the server, without downloading it. It cost me $150 to get rid of one of those live action screensavers and the spyware and adware that came with it. Never again! So how do I set up that Slide Show Screen Saver ? Thanks Maggie Dear Maggie Click on START ControlPanel Yeah, I know it is a big mess in Windows 7, but there is nothing I can do about that. Search for DISPLAY, it often is not too far down in the mess. In some versions of Windows7, you will see an item named Screensaver However, Microsoft is not consistent and in other versions, you don't. In those versions of Windows7 look at the bottom of that screen, and you will see Personalization Yeah, pretty big word for people, who can't keep the setup consistent from one version to another. Hit that big word and at the very bottom right hand corner in that page, you finally see Screensaver. In that screen select Photos Click on Settings and browse to the folder, where you got the pictures, that you want to use. Make double sure, that you have absolutely NO videos in there! Make double sure, that you have absolutely NO videos in there! Windows 7 does not deal gracefully with those, and you may have to pull the plug to get going again. Once you have made absolutely sure, that you have NO videos in that folder, select it. Then set the wait time. You CAN put a checkmark onto the logon screen requirement. That is normally just used in offices, where you don't want anybody else snooping into your machine, while you are in the washroom. Then hit OK, and it is done. if you don't have any pictures, that are safe to show in your absence, there are some safe ones at Wincustomize. If you want to experiment or change your screen savers often, then you will probably get VERY fed up with the ridiculously braindead rigmarole for getting to the screensaver settings. Well, you are not the first one, and some good people wrote a tiny shortcut program for that. Windows 7 - Screen Saver Settings Shortcut That gives you a simple icon on the desktop to get to the screensaver settings without any silly fuss. In Windows 12 that shortcut will probably be buit in. Have FUN! DearWebby

"Honey," said a husband to his wife, "I invited a friend home for supper." "What? Are you crazy? The house is a mess, I didn't go shopping, all the dishes are dirty, and I don't feel like cooking fancy meal!" "I know all that," said the husband. "Then why did you invite a friend for supper?" the wife demanded. "Because the poor fool's thinking about getting married."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keep Pins in Prescription Bottle Keep straight pins in a prescription medication bottle. This keeps them out of children's hands. By kirstenenswan from Logan, UT OUCH! You can get paperclip holders at the Dollar Store. They are cups with a magnetic collar, that offers you a few pins without poking your fingers. You can also get flexible magnetic strips at tool supply stores. They are handy for holding a big array of needles and can be attached anywhere out of reach of kids. I built a sewing kit from an attache case for a girlfriend once, and put some magnetic strips into the lid. They held all the different embroidery needles and thimbles and threaders. None of them ever fell off, even when the lid was slammed shut in a hurry. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.

A guy walked into his friend's office, he found him sitting at his desk, looking very depressed. "Hey, what's up with you?", he asks. "Oh, its my wife," replied the man sadly. "She's hired a new secretary for me." "Well, nothing wrong in that. Is she blonde or brunette?" "Neither, her father is bald."
