Tall Tripod 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, October 11

Thank you, Ray!

>From Dr Bill
I enjoy reading the tips you give because people are 
apparently doing things with their computer that I know 
nothing about - however, I found a free word processor 
some years ago which I have found to be the easiest, 
most reliable program I ever used, and I write and save a 
lot of stuff - it is called "Jarte" - you might like to share it
 with folks who aren't into the highly complex stuff that 
many appear to be addicted to.
Bill

I have not used Jarte, but it looks quite impressive!
It is available free at http://jarte.com
Jarte might be ideal for people, who just want a simple word
processor or have limited space. You CAN put Jarte onto a
camera chip or key-fob drive, and use it on different machines,
for example home and work, or when visiting relatives. You
don't have to install it on those alternate machines, and as
far as I can tell, it won't leave any traces on those machines..

Thanks Dr Bill!


Have FUN!

>From Senna One morning I was called to pick up my son at the school nurse's office. When I walked through the main entrance, I noticed a woman, curlers in her hair, green mudpack on the face, wearing pajamas. "Why are you dressed like that?" I asked her. "I told my son," she explained, "that if he ever did anything to embarrass me, I would embarrass him worse. He was caught cutting school. So now I've come to spend the day with him!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Keegan Curry, 25, in St. Petersburg, Florida Struck By Car While Fleeing From Loss-Prevention Officer Reported in The Weekly Vice Keegan Curry, a 25-year-old St. Petersburg man was hospitalized after he allegedly shoplifted from a local J.C. Penny retail store before he was struck by a car while fleeing the scene. According to St. Petersburg police, Curry was stopped by a loss-prevention officer after he attempted to leave a J.C. Penny retail store without paying for items he had concealed inside his pants. Curry pushed past the officer and stated "I'm not going back to prison" as he attempted to flee the scene. Investigators say the officer and a bystander chased Curry as he ran onto the northbound lane of a busy road and was struck by a 2005 Chrysler minivan. As rescue crews attempted to treat Curry's injuries, they removed two shirts from his pants that he had stolen from the store. Curry was taken to Bayfront Medical Center where he received treatment for severe injuries. The driver and front passenger inside the minivan were not seriously injured. Curry will be hauled to jail when he is discharged from the hospital.

Tech Support Pits: From: Amy Re: Tall tripod Dear Webby, I need a really tall tripod or something, to take pictures above the heads of a crowd. My camera does have a swivel monitor, so that I don't have to be up there myself. What is the solution, and where can I get it? Amy Dear Amy Tripods and crowds do NOT mix. Everybody will either trip over it's legs or kick them. You need a "stick". Get a telescoping shower curtain rod, a 1 inch long 1/4" by 20 bolt and a 1/4" wingnut, plus some two component epoxy. Roughen one end of the curtain rod with sand paper and clean it with rubbing alcohol, then epoxy the bolt onto it, with the head of it on the end of the rod. Use more than the absolute minimum of epoxy and make it look nice and smooth. When the epoxy is hard, thread the wingnut onto the bolt, with the wings pointing towards the rod. Now you can thread the camera onto the bolt, until it just barely bottoms out. Then turn the wingnut up towards the camera and lock it. With the wingnut you can use a bit of force, but not with the bolt intio the camera. The telescoping rods can usually be locked by twisting them, and you can fix it for whatever height you need that day. If yours does not lock, you can force it to a few popular height levels and drill small holes through it. A small screw through both the outer and inner pipe will lock it. A lengthwise paint stripe on both pipes will really help for lining up the little holes. You don't have to thread the holes, the spring in the pipe has more than enough tension to hold the screw securely. Some people glue a cross or an "L" bracket onto the pipe for really smooth panning. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Pringles Cans for Storage Besides making the solar hot dog cooker that I've seen on several sites, I use Pringles containers for storing the plastic bags we get from stores. Then, I have a portable dispenser for plastic bags to store in car, hunting and fishing gear, and for gardening (for holding produce while harvesting and for gifting excess produce to others).

Doctor Bloom who was known for miraculous cures for arthritis had a waiting room full of people when a little old lady, completely bent over in half, shuffled in slowly, leaning on her walker. When her turn came, she went into the doctor's office, and, amazingly, emerged within half an hour walking completely erect with her head held high. A woman in the waiting room who had seen all this walked up to the little old lady and said, "It's a miracle! You walked in bent in half and now you're walking erect. What did that doctor do?" She answered, "Miracle, shmiracle . . he adjusted my walker."
