How to make an icon for a favorite web site? 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, October 14

Usually the weather warms up nicely in the second half of
October. This year that has started right after the snow 
earlier this week. 

On my walk I checked the fruit and veggie stands. Sometimes 
they lower their prices on Saturday evening, so that they 
don't have to pack up or toss stuff, that has been out for 
a while.

Fruit was out of my budget, but I managed to get three
cobs of corn for a dollar! It was tempting to head straight
home after that, but I did complete a 3 mile round. Not
as good as the 4-mile route, but good enough.
The first of those cobs sure tasted great!

Have FUN!

A new forestry graduate receives his first 5-year posting way out in the middle of a huge forest with no people around for miles. Much to his surprise, included in the survival gear that they give him, is a recipe for matzo balls. When he asks why he's receiving a matzo ball recipe, he is told, "Sometime, a few years down the road when the solitude *really* starts to get to you, you'll pull out this matzo ball recipe and start to mix it together. "Within five minutes you'll have a half a dozen Jewish women hovering over you telling you what you are doing wrong!" -------------- Hmmm, maybe I should try that. There must be lots of matzo ball recipes on the web. But first I am going to have to shoot some matzos!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Betsian Penaloza, 34, in San Juan, Puerto Rico Fatty The Maneater - Charged With Pimping Out Teen Daughter For $500 Reported in The Weekly Vice Betsian Penaloza, a 34-year-old Puerto Rico woman has been jailed after she allegedly pimped out her 14-year-old daughter for $500.

Investigators say Penaloza brought her daughter and two other girls to the Sheraton Hotel at the San Juan Convention Center for the planned sexual encounter. Penaloza allegedly demanded $500 for sex with her daughter and $250 for each of the other two girls. Penaloza, who goes by the nickname "Fatty the Maneater," is also accused of prostituting other young girls and may face additional charges as the investigation continues.

Tech Support Pits: From: Lynn Re: MSIE Link Dear Webby, How can I put a link to a website that I use a *lot* in the Int. Explorer toolbar? I tried dragging the URL into a blank spot in the toolbar, but it didn't work (That's the way I do it in Firefox which I use most of the time; but this one particular website will only work correctly in Internet Explorer.) Thanks for any help you can give; love your humor letter! --Lynn Dear Lynn With IE the easiest way is to drag the icon from the address bar onto a blank spot on the desktop or drop it onto a desktop folder. You CAN enable links in the top bar, and drag it to there, but space there is limited, and if you narrow the window, those links are often hidden. Personally, I prefer the first method and have a few shortcuts to thematic folders along the left margin of the desktop. For example, a music folder, a graphics folder, etc. The reason for using shortcuts to folders, instead of desktop folders, is that you can change the icons for shortcuts, but all desktop folders look the same. In W7 that bug got fixed and you can change the icons for desktop folders. You can, of course just drag it onto the desktop, and leave it visible there for anybody who walks by. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Reuse Cake Mix Bag For Decorating: When I make cupcakes from a cake mix, I always save the bag. I rinse the bag out, dry it, clip a corner and insert a decorating tip inside. It makes a perfect disposable frosting bag and these bags are super strong. By norulesart from Sunny Florida Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at

In Jerusalem, a CNN journalist heard about a very old man who had been to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, each day, for a long, long time, and so she decided to check it out. She went to the Western Wall and there he was! She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, she approached him for an interview. "I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN. Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?" "For about 60 years." "60 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?" "I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and Muslims. I pray for all the hatred to stop and I pray for all our children to grow up in safety and friendship." "How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?" "Like I'm talking to a stupid wall."

Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: "Free to good home. You want it, you take it". For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal. It looked to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read: "Fridge for sale $50". The next day someone stole it. Caution! These people Vote
