Camera for kids 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Monday, October 1

Yesterday's picture was Kalabaka, Greece.
When in doubt, click through to the big picture,
and look at the file name in the browser address bar.

Yesterday's was "Kalabaka-Greece-L.jpg"
The -L is for the Large version. Ignore that and the.jpg.
What is left is Kalabaka-Greece. Replace the - with a 
comma and a space, and you got the correct location name.

Have FUN!

On the first day of college, the Dean addressed the students, pointing out some of the rules. "The female dormitory will be out-of-bounds for all male students, and the male dormitory to the female students. Anybody caught breaking this rule will be fined $25 the first time." He continued, "Anybody caught breaking this rule the second time will be fined $50. Being caught a third time will incur a hefty fine of $100. Are there any questions?" At this point, a male student in the crowd inquired: "How much for a season pass?"
Q1: How can a man go eight days without sleep and still be well-rested? Q2: How can you easily determine how much dirt there is in an oblong hole three feet deep at one end and two feet deep at the other end, and four feet wide at one end and two feet wide at the other end?

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Charles Cowart, 29, in Bunnell, Florida Drunk On Horse Leads Deputies On Slow Speed Chase Through Town Charles Cowart, a 29-year-old Florida man was jailed Monday after he allegedly tried to flee police on a horse. According to the Flagler County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched after a witness reported seeing an intoxicated man urinate on a lawn before riding off on a horse. Investigators say Cowart road the horse in the middle of U.S. 1 and then along a set a railroad tracks. When deputies ordered Cowart down from the horse, he allegedly stated that he was going to see his grandmother in Flagler and refused to dismount from the horse. Cowart rode the horse through town as neighbors came out of their homes to watch the ordeal. Deputies refrained from using their lights or sirens to avoid scaring the horse. Deputies were forced to stop a southbound train in order to protect safety of both the man and horse. Deputies followed Cowart for about 30 minutes until the horse became tired. That's when he allegedly hopped down from the horse and tried to flee on foot. Cowart was booked into the Flagler County Jail and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest without violence, and cruelty to animals. He is being held in lieu of a $7,000 bond. Apparently riding a horse for half an hour is "cruelty to animals" in Floriduh.

Tech Support Pits: From: Shirley Re: Camera for kids Dear Webby, My grandkids, 6 and 7 years old will be visiting me for a couple or three weeks while my daughter has to go for an operation. I want to buy them digital cameras and teach them the basics of my hobby. What kind of camera would you suggest for complete novices of that age? Not too expensive, preferably. Thanks Shirley Dear Shirley Check out http://pricegrabber.com Ignore the listings under $30, those are usually just slime-balls on eBay trying to con you with a bait-and-switch. Look for cameras sold for reasonable prices and preferably by legitimate dealers. A good example is a Vivitar Strawberry V7028 7.1 MegaPixel for $33, with $7.43 for ground shipping. The preview screen is only 1.5", which seems small compared what YOU and I prefer for our older eyes, but quite huge compared to the little view finders that our first cameras had, and more than big enough for 7 year olds. The case is red metallic, to make the camera easy to find, when a kid misplaces it. Here is the link to that camera: http://www.nextwarehouse.com/item/?1327678_p3g By the way, "Strawberry" is just the nickname for that camera, it looks like any small digital camera, just red metallic. You can safely paint one of them lemon yellow for one of the two grand-kids. Have FUN! DearWebby
