Because an increasing number of people are having heart attacks while gambling, the big, high-class casinos are now equipped with sophisticated defibrillators. They are computer-controlled to deliver the exact electric shock needed to revive a heart attack victim. That is, if you're at a big, high-class casino. At the cheaper casinos downtown, they just drag you across the carpet and touch your belly button to a doorknob.
The basketball coach stormed into the university president's office and demanded a raise right then and there. "Please," protested the college President, "you already make more than the entire History department." "Yeah, maybe so, but you don't know what I have to put up with," the coach blustered. "Look, I'll Give you an example." The coach went out into the hall and grabbed a jock who was jogging down the hallway. "Run over to my office and see if I'm there," he ordered. Twenty minutes later the jock returned, sweaty and out of breath. "You're not there, sir," he reported. "Oh, I see what you mean," conceded the President, scratching his head. "I would have phoned first."

Thanks to Dad for these pictures. That is what he did yesterday. Half an hour train ride, half an hour bus ride, then with the cable car up to the Luener See, an artificial hydro dam lake. Click on the picture for the large version Click on the picture for the large version A coffee and a bite to eat at the top station Click on the picture for the large version Hiking along the lake on the now beautifuly groomed path Click on the picture for the large version That building, the Totalp, is the turn-around place. In summer there is cattle there, and the cow-pokes live in that building. You CAN continue from there to hike the back side of the lake or hike up to a peak, but like most of the people on the trail yesterday, he turned around there and hiked back to the dam.

Click on the picture for the large version Getting close to the dam Click on the picture for the large version Some apple-strudel and a coffee in the sunshine before taking the cable car back down into the valley. I wish I could be hikihng with him, but sizing an sharing the pictures with you is second best.

Tech Support Pits: From: Sheila Re: Computer clock is late Dear Webby, My clock in my task bar has just recently started being wrong. I have almost been late on several occasions because the clock was several minutes slow. What could be causing this? Sheila Dear Sheila If you have your clock set to synchronize with the rest of the world at midnight, but turn your computer off at 11:55 PM, then your computer's clock will go a bit more out of sync every day. Just like wall clocks and wrist watches need to be set occasionally, the same applies to the computer's clock. That does not mean your computer's clock is not accurate, it's that the year is not 365 days, but 365 1/4 days, minus a few hours. Some atomic clocks are set for that, and some eggheads fudge and correct even that occasionally. The Synchronize function calls that atomic clock, or actually a server, that is updated daily, and uses that to update your computer clock. Just double-click the clock and change the time for the synchronizing to a time, during which your normally are online. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Egg Cartons For Craft Organization: I save egg cartons of both kinds cardboard and Styrofoam. I use the bottom of all sizes in the Styrofoam to use when I do watercolor painting. They can be used for any painting medium and also for crafting. I use them and then toss them out after my day of painting for mixing colors. You can also either the Styrofoam or cardboard cartons for all sorts of crafting or sewing, for storing beads for Jewelry making, for any kind of small items to keep you organized.

The Manhattan Commuter train was packed. Suddenly there was a jingle on the floor. Most necks were craned. One elderly gentleman, however, bent down and picked something up. He then asked, "Did anyone drop a half dollar?" "I did," answered three women at once. "Well," said the elderly gent with a smile, "here's a dime of it."
