Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, Aug 1

The Saskatoon berries are getting ripe gradually. It is a
good thing they ripen over a stretch of a few weeks and not
all of a sudden. The cold and wet spring produced Billions
of them, well, maybe not Billions, but a huge number of them.

The raspberries are ripening nicely too. The last few days I 
got one of the cute little containers for muffin papers filled
each day, plus of course a fair bit of snacking while I pick
them. Those muffin paper containers are just perfect for one
festive pancake topping.

I decided to do some mowing after sunset, but before I was 
finished, it got too cold for comfort. There was an icy blast 
coming down from the glaciers and rather than put a jacket
and a woollen cap on, I decided to postpone the rest of the 
mowing. 

Because of the summer heat and lack of rain after the 
middle of July the lawns stop growing anyway and slowly turn
brown, except for those of new residents, who have not seen
their water bills yet, nd who cheerfully water their lawns.

The town has plenty of water, and because the water table is 
only a few feet down, pumping is cheap. However, they use
the water meters to generate big income, so that they can
employ more relatives.

So most of the permanent residents simply don't water lawns.

We usually get some rain again in late September.
 Have FUN!

A college professor asked his class a question. "If Philadelphia is 100 miles from New York and Chicago is 1000 miles from Philadelphia and Los Angles is 2000 miles from Chicago, how old am I?" One student in the back of the class raised his hand and when called upon said, "Professor you're 44.." The Professor said, "You're absolutely correct, but tell me, how did you arrive at the answer so quickly?" The student said, "You see professor, I have a brother; he's 22, and he's only half crazy."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Lowell Turpin, 40, in Clinton, Tennessee Romney Photo Spurs Domestic Abuse Incident JULY 31--Suspicious that his live-in girlfriend was planning an affair, a Tennessee man confronted the woman after spotting a photo of an unknown guy on her Facebook page, according to a police report. Lowell Turpin, 40, “angrily demanded to know who the male was,” reported Anderson County Sheriff’s Department investigators. Crystal Gray, 38, “replied that it was a picture of Mitt Romney.” Despite being informed that the man on Gray’s wall was the Republican presidential candidate (and not some hunky, severely conservative sidepiece), Turpin apparently was not placated. Gray said that he “became upset because she was attempting to communicate with friends through her Facebook account.” In a subsequent tussle over the laptop, Gray’s hand was injured as she unsuccessfully tried to stop Turpin form smashing the computer against the wall. Gray told deputies that Turpin, pictured in the above mug shot, also punched her in the face during the encounter. While denying that he assaulted Gray, the 310-pound Turpin gave probers “multiple contradictory accounts of the struggle over the laptop.” Turpin was charged with domestic assault in connection with the July 22 incident at the couple’s Clinton residence. Turpin remains locked up in the Anderson County jail in lieu of $1000 bond.
Tech Support Pits: From: Eileen Re: PDF file sizes Dear Webby We write our invoices in PDF format. Yes, I know, that is stupid and klutzy and,.. don't get me going on that, or I'll never stop! There is no reason for it, it's policy. Anyway, instead of generating them automatically in compact HTML format, they want me to shrink the file sizes of the PDF files. Making self-extrating zip files of them was a total failure. They get blocked by even the most primitive spam controls and anti virus programs. Can the PDF invoices be shrunk somehow, and if yes, how do I do that ? Eileen Dear Eileen I bet I could rant about PDF files as long as you can ! They are good for e-books, and not much else. You, or your local "Friends of PDF invoices", probably figured that clients would waste paper and print the invoices instead of just keeping the files that you email them, and set the PDF output for "printable". That provides nice printed color pictures, but is a total waste of file size for invoices. Reduce the logo to two or 16 color black and white, and set the output to "viewable only", and "Black/White" if your program allows that. That way the file will be saved at 72 dots per inch, insted of 300 dots per inch. That reduces the file size to a quarter or even less. It still prints quite nicely and legibly, more than good enough for invoices. We have used HTML invoices for over twenty years now, with passworded on-line folders for each client. They can step through them all the way back to their first one, and view or print any of them that they want, whenever they want, without ever having to dig through file cabinets. Because they are HTML, they can copy paste from them, or import them into spreadsheets like Quattro, Lotus or Excel. With PDF they couldn't do any of that, because PDF is just a dead picture and you can't copy numbers or text off it.. Have FUN! DearWebby

Cindy dragged herself in to the doctor's office. "Doctor, there are dogs all over my neighborhood. They bark all day and all night, and I can't get a wink of sleep." "I have good news for you," the doctor answered, rummaging through a drawer full of sample medications. "Here are some new sleeping pills that work like a dream. A few of these and your trouble will be over." "Great," Cindy answered, "I'll try anything. Let's give it a shot." A few weeks later Cindy returned, looking worse than ever. "Doc, your plan is no good. I'm more tired than before!" "I don't understand how that could be", said the doctor, shaking his head. "Those are the strongest pills on the market!" "That may be true," answered Cindy wearily, "but I'm still up all night chasing those dogs and when I finally catch one, it's hard getting him to swallow the pill!"

Having just completed my training as the hospital's switch- board operator, I was reasonably confident that I knew all the codes for emergencies: Code Blue for cardiac arrest, Code Red for fire, etc. My first night on the job alone, however, a nurse phoned and asked me to page a "Code Brown, Room 214." I had no idea what that was. I called the page, then searched frantically through my emergency manual, but I couldn't find any description of it anywhere. Stumped, I finally called the nurse back and asked her about it. "Relax," laughed the nurse. "Code Brown is what we page when a patient is discharged and leaves behind an unfinished box of chocolates!"

>From Lori The local bookstore had this huge display with a sign advertising, "Newly Translated From the Original French: 37 Mating Positions." The book was already wrapped in plain brown wrapper and I just had to buy one. Once safely at home and alone, I opened it and found that I had just purchased an expensive book about chess.
