How to Revive a Used Laser Printer
Good Morning, !
Today is Thursday, June 14
Are you following the Euro2012 games?
I find it interesting how much the coverage differs.
Most NorthAmerican media seem to fous on the hooligans,
that try to crank up a bit of rioting before the games,
and barely mention the games or the scores.
European and British media tend to ignore the violence and
stick to reporting about the games. If you are interested in

"The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail
instead of his tongue."
Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen
and thinking what nobody has thought.
--- Albert von Szent-Gyorgyi
A man is walking his dog, and passes a little restaurant;
the cooking smells are so tempting, he decides he would
like to stop for lunch, but the sign says no animals are
After a couple of moment's thought, he decided to brazen it
out: he puts on a pair of sunglasses, walks into the rest-
aurant, with his dog on a leash and asks to be seated. The
waiter says "I am sorry sir, but we do not permit animals
in the restaurant."
The man says, "But I'm blind, and this is my seeing eye dog."
The waiter responds skeptically: "Your seeing eye dog? Sir,
that dog is a Dachshund, a Wiener Dog!"
The man responds: "A Dachshund! They gave me a Dachshund?"
A real-estate agent was driving around with a new trainee
when she spotted a charming little farmhouse with a
hand-lettered "For Sale" sign out front.
After briskly introducing herself and her associate to the
startled occupant, the agent cruised from room to room,
opening closets and cupboards, testing faucets and
pointing out where a "new light fixture here and a little
paint there" would help. Pleased with her assertiveness,
the woman was hopeful that the owner would offer her the
"Ma'am," the man said, "I appreciate the home-improvement
tips and all,
but I think you read my sign wrong.
It says, "HORSE for sale. But I s'pose someone who don't
read so good, prolly can't afford a horse ?"

Cadedra Cook - Orders Pizza,
Then Stabs Delivery Driver 50 Times
Cadedra Cook, an 18-year-old Cedartown woman, and an unnamed
15-year-old boy, were jailed Friday after they allegedly ordered
a pizza and then stabbed the delivery driver more than
According to Cedartown Police, Cook and the juvenile reportedly
beat and stabbed 27-year-old Elizabeth Hutchenson, a mother
of one, while she was making a pizza delivery at their
residence on Thursday around 9:00 p.m.
Cook and the juvenile then fled on foot, leaving the victim
bleeding to death in their doorway.
Officers found Hutchenson while on a routine traffic stop.
She was rushed to a Polk Medical Center, where she was
pronounced dead. Medical officials stated that she received
over 50 stab wounds to her head, chest, and torso. Officers
apprehended the suspects the next day in a nearby field.
"We had been one step behind them most of the night," said
Cedertown Police Chief Jamie Newsome. "We were finally
able to catch up to them in daylight.
Investigators say detectives do not have a motive behind the
attack. A small amount of money was taken from the victim,
but not enough to initiate a murder. Officers are working to
determine if it was premeditated.
A Domino's spokesperson stated that drivers are not
encouraged to carry more than $20 on them while delivering.
They stated that they were horrified by the incident, and their
prayers go out to the family of the victim, which includes a
4-year-old girl and a boyfriend.
Cook was booked into the Polk County Jail on charges of murder.
The juvenile, who was also jailed on murder charges, may be
charged as an adult.

Re: Used laser printer
I bought a used Dell Laser printer from a company, that went
out of business. They said it was working OK the last time
they used it a year ago. I downloaded the driver for it, but
it won't print. It has all kinds of lights lit up, but nothing
is happening. What do you recommend?
Most likely one of the departing emloyees took the toner
cartridges home as a last souvenir.
Just go to Atlantic inkjet .com and order toner
for it. Shortly after you put toner cartridges in and slam
the side door, those lights will all go out and you can
If there is more than just the power light on, toner is empty
or cartridges are missing.
By the way, laser toner cartridges from Atlantic inkjet .com can
sit around for years. They don't go bad.
With old printers, it is a good idea to open them up, chase
the mice and/or spiders out with a vacuum cleaner,
and wipe all the rubber rollers with a Q-tip dipped in
gas-line-antifreeze or key-lock-de-icer or Methyl Hydrate,
It is all the same stuff, but a one ounce bottle of lock de-icer
will usually cost you more than a gallon of Methyl Hydrate
from the paint department at Home Depot.
That cleans and rejuvenates the rubber rollers, so that they
become sticky and grabby like dragster tires.
Then the printer does not have to spin the wheels to eventually
pick up some paper, it will move as soon as a wheel begins
The teacher was asking the kids where they were going to
go for their summer vacations. She turned to little Johnny
and asked him.
"We're going to visit my grandmother in Punxsutawney,
Pennsylvania," he replied.
"That sounds like an excellent vocabulary word," the teacher
said. "Can you tell the class how you spell that?"
Little Johnny thought about it and said, "You know, come to
think of it, since I am probably going to flunk this class,
most likely I'll be going to Balconia,
or maybe the wood shed."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com
Use Small Grocery Bags For Dog Waste
Save those tiny plastic grocery bags that are too small to use
for anything else. I keep my other plastic bags to use for trash
containers. You can use the really little bags to pick up doggie
messes in the park when walking your dog and no waste
bags are available.

While my wife and I were shopping at a mall kiosk, a

Without looking up from the item she was examining,

My son from California who was visiting this weekend
tells me that there were a couple of terrorists who had
made it into the US and were having coffee in San Francisco
when one of them started conversing in Arabic.
The other cautioned him and then reminded him,
"We are in the United States now. Speak Spanish."
