Printer spits paper onto the floor 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Friday, September 21
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

I read that "The Well" was sold to an investor group consisting 
of long time members.

The Well was the first wide open online community. I remember
when it was accessible only via direct dial, befroe the Internet.
With a 3.4 KHz modem that got expensive in a hurry! 
There were no graphics, of course, except file transfer,
but even fast reading and fast replying hit the phone bill
quite noticeably. 

I remember trying it briefly, and even though I thought it 
was pretty neat, I did not visit after I got the phone bill for 
that month.

In the meantime The Well is of course on the Internet.
You can visit it at
just find a "conference" you are interested in, and chime in.

Have FUN!

"I like everything about fall. For example, I like Oktober- fest. On my way to work my cab driver had pretzels in his turban." --- Dave Letterman "Magnetism is one of the Six Fundamental Forces of the Universe, with the other five being Gravity, Duct Tape, Whining, Remote Control, and The Force That Pulls Dogs Toward The Groins Of Strangers." --- Dave Barry
A fairly attractive lady was sitting in a fine restaurant one night. Waiting for her date as she was, she wanted to make sure everything was perfect. So, as she bends down in her chair to get the mirror from her purse, she accidentally farts quite loudly just as the waiter walks up. Sitting up straight, embarrassed and red faced, sure that everyone in the place heard her, she turns to the waiter and demands, "Stop that!" The waiter looks at her dryly and says, "Sure lady, which way did you fire it ?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Jennifer Fletcher, 42, Massillon, Ohio Charged With Draining Son's Bank Account While He Serves In Afghanistan, Arrested In Stolen Car Jennifer Fletcher, a 42-year-old Ohio woman was arraigned Monday after she allegedly raided her son's bank account and cashed his tax refund checks while he was deployed to Afghanistan. According to police, Fletcher withdrew approximately $16,000 from her son's bank account between March 2010 and April 2011. Her son was deployed to Afghanistan at the time while serving in the U.S. Army. Fletcher also allegedly forged her son's name to cash checks including a tax refund check that she then deposited in her own account. Fletcher reportedly gained access to her son's tax and account information when she agreed to file his tax return while he was deployed overseas, police say. Investigators say Fletcher was arrested Sunday after an officer stopped her because the car she was driving had been reported stolen. Felony warrants had been issued for Fletcher's arrest in July after her son's wife reported the fraud and forgeries in May of this year. During a police interview, Fletcher reportedly admitted to depositing and using her son's money. "She used more than just the tax returns," said Lawrence Township Police Chief Mark Brink. "She used some of the money that was put into his account through the military." Fletcher was booked into jail and charged with two counts of felony theft, one count of identity fraud and one count of forgery. Fletcher is scheduled to make her next court appearance on September 24. Her bond has been set at $150,000.

Tech Support Pits: From: Laura Re: Printer spitting paper Dear Webby, My Brother printer keeps spitting paper onto the floor when it ejects the printed pages. Is there a way to stop that? Laura Dear Laura That's normal for many Brother printers. Just take a wire coat hanger, bend one end so that it forms a 5 inch wide rectangle. Stick the other end under the printer, with the nice rectangle end projecting four inches beyond the built in paper catcher. Bend it up slightly, and it will securely stop all the printed pages, as they come flying out. I have seen people put some plywood or shelving under the printer, sticking out six to eight inches on the output side, but the paper occasionlly still sails out over that. The bent up coat hangers seem to work the most reliably. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Save Magazine Pictures For Crafts: I love to make my own cards and gift bags and I love magazines (I get a ton). When I want to make card for a certain holiday, let say Halloween, I just pull out my latest magazine, (they always arrive a month ahead of time) and look for cute pictures of pumpkins, black cats and other Halloween related pictures. If I can't find what I want, I pull out an older issue of the same month. By Jennifer from Conyers, GA Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

"This hotel stinks!" a guest complained when he showed up at the front desk to check out. "What's wrong?" I asked. "I got no sleep. Every 15 minutes this loud banging sound woke me up!" I apologized for the noise and checked him out. A few minutes later, a couple showed up. Again, I made the mistake of asking how their stay was. "Terrible!" they said. "The guy in the next room was snoring so loudly that we had to bang on the wall every 15 minutes to wake him up!"

>From Bill Last October my wife bought a magnolia tree from the local nursery, but after only a few weeks the leaves shriveled. It appeared to be on its last legs. My wife took some leaf samples and marched into the nursery to demand an explanation. "I know exactly what's wrong with your magnolia," said the manager. "Good," said my wife. "What's it suffering from?" "Autumn," he replied.
