Bolt to hold camera 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Friday, October 12
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!



Woke up to a white wonderland. It had snowed overnight, 
and cooled off considerably. No chance of it melting before
I had to walk to the other end of town to see an optometrist.
My freezing ears remionded me that summer is definitely over,
and that there is no Gullible Warming in Alberta.

Have FUN!

A rabbi was called to a Miami Beach Nursing Home to perform a wedding. An anxious old man met him at the door. The rabbi sat down to counsel the old man and asked several questions. "Do you love her?" The old man replied, "I guess." "Is she a good Jewish woman?" "I don't know for sure," the old man answered. "Does she have lots of money?" asked the rabbi. "I doubt it." "Then why are you marrying her?" the rabbi asked. "She can drive at night," the old man said
When the aged president of the company was out of town, half a dozen of his senior executives got together to plan some way to ease the old coot out of the driver's seat. To their horror, the executive VP's secretary buzzed him halfway through the meeting to inform him that the president had come back early and was on his way to see him. "If he catches us all here he'll know exactly what we're up to," cried the VP. "Quick, you five jump out the window!" "But we're on the thirteenth floor," protested the treasurer. "Jump!" yelled the VP. "This is no time for superstition!"

Tech Support Pits: From: Maria Re: Camera bolt Dear Webby, I can't find that 1/4 inch by 20 bolt, that you specify for holding my camera. Is there a metric equivalent, that could be used? Thanks Maria Dear Maria If you force a similar metric bolt into that soft mounting hole, no tripod bolt will ever fit again. Not a good idea! You can probably find a cheap table-top tripod at a Dollar Store or at a camera store for under $10. Then just glue that onto your telescoping pole. Have FUN! DearWebby

Charlie made an appointment with a urologist, famous for his work in the field of impotence. The doctor examined him and said, "You're in remarkably good condition for a man of 85. Why are you here?" Charlie replied, "My friend Max says he has sex twice a week. I can't do that." The doctor shrugged. "Yes you can. You can certainly SAY you have sex as many times a week as you like."

A linguistics professor was lecturing his class. "In English," he explained, "a double negative forms a positive. In some languages, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative." "However," the professor continued, "there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative." A voice from the back of the room piped up. "Yeah, right."
