These days, with all the emphasis on one's physical fitness, a new organization has sprung up called "Athletics Anonymous." When you get the urge to play golf, tennis, go power-walking or bicycle riding (or anything else involving a type of physical activity), they send someone over to watch TV with you until the urge passes.
How to Place New Employees in a Proper Department Take the prospective employees you are trying to place and put them in a room with only a table and two chairs. Leave them alone for two hours, without any instruction. At the end of that time, go back and see what they are doing. If they have taken the table apart, put them in Engineering. If they are counting the butts in the ashtray, assign them to Finance. If they are waving their arms and talking out loud, send them to Consulting. If they are talking to the chairs, Personnel is a good spot for them. If they are wearing green sunglasses and need a haircut, Computer Information Systems is their niche. If the room has a sweaty odor, perhaps they're destined for the Help Desk. If they mention what a good price we got for the table and chairs, put them into Purchasing. If they mention that hardwood furniture DOES NOT come from rainforests, Public Relations would suit them well. If they are writing up the experience, send them to the Technical Documents team. If they don't even look up when you enter the room, assign them to Security. If they try to tell you it's not as bad as it looks, send them to Marketing. If they are sleeping, they are Management material.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Kendall Remsing, 35, in New Llano, La. Charged With Incest After He Was Shot In Face By 15-Year-Old Stepdaughter Reported by The Weekly Vice Kendall Remsing, a 35-year-old Louisiana bonehead was jailed Wednesday on incest charges after he was shot in the face by his 15-year-old-step daughter. According to the Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office, an investigation was launched in late May after police received a 911 call stating that a 15-year-old girl had shot her stepfather in the face. Deputies who arrived on the scene took the girl into custody and charged her with attempted second-degree murder. Remsing was transported to Byrd Regional Hospital where he was stabilized and then flown to Rapides Regional Medical Center where he remains in stable, but critical condition. (Mug shot is from a previous arrest) During the investigation, however, Remsing was now been accused of molesting a juvenile family member. Additional evidence was gathered that corroborated the allegation, according to detectives. Remsing has been charged with aggravated incest and molestation of a juvenile. His bond has been set at $100,000.
Tech Support Pits From: Fred Re: Can't get rid of RealPlayer files AS Always---HELP!!! I downloaded some not bad, but stupid stuff to my Real PLayer--- Now I want to get rid of it. But when I send it to the trash I get this--- Cannot delete---Make sure Disk is not full or write protected or not in use???? I have completely removed Real Player from My PC, but the files are still on my desk top---I am attaching one--- Thanks. Fred Dear Fred Are you referring to Real Player program files, or to music and movies ? To get rid of realPlayer, you have to do it through the Program Manager or with the Secure Uninstaller, which gets rid of stuff that the Program Manager can't. In case you still have not got the Secure Uninstaller, it is still at http://webby.com/uninst Nowadays you pretty well need that, because so much stuff is too sneaky for the Program Manager. However, if you mean just music and movies, log on as Administrator and then dump them. If you were too lazy to save the files into a folder made for that purpose, and just littered them onto the desktop, then quite possibly they are "OWNED" by the Administrator, and can't be deleted by a mere User. If you have trouble logging on as administrator, save all openfiles, close all open programs, Hit SMD (Save My Desktop) and then rudely pull the plug. After plugging in again, Windows will ask you, if you want to start up in Safe Mode. In Safe Mode you are automatically the Administrator. As Administrator you can delete anything you want. Keep in mind that Safe Mode quite likely messes up your icon arrangement. That is why it is important to hit SMD before you do that. In some cases, uninstalling a program like RealPlayer with the Program Manager or Secure Uninstaller does not unlock the data files until you reboot. Real reboot, not just restart. Have FUN!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use an Empty Can as a Utensil Holder When Cooking: Here is what I use to prevent spilled mess on my counter when I am cooking. I usually use more than one utensil when I am cooking but never know where to place them during the cooking time as I am still using them. Well, since I usually use some type of canned goods with all my meals, I came up with the following idea. I rinse the can that I used, then I use it as a utensil holder while I am cooking. Once I am done cooking, I place the utensils in the sink, rinse the can again and recycle it. So it's kinda like recycling it twice. The bonus is that it saves a mess to clean off my counter or a plate. By tomnsaby from Albuquerque, NM Cans are too light and get knocked over too easily, plus they don't have space for ladles and flippers. I use a heavy Pyrex 1 liter measuring cup half full of water. Even with an assortment of wooden spoons and ladles it never gets knocked over. The water adds weight and keeps food from hardening on the utensils. Have FUN!

The fourth-grade class was studying the development of the auto industry. The teacher had emphasized the role played by Henry Ford, whose assembly lines decreased production costs. At the end of the unit, she gave a test including the question: "What did Henry Ford invent that made buying a car more affordable?" One of the brightest students in the class wrote: "0% financing."
