Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

I sure can emphasize with those of you, who use Dial-Up.
Had totally forgotten how slow that is. Not surprisingly,
the slowest site of all was the one of Telus, my ISP.

Have FUN!

A large company, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. This new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers. On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning on a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business! The new CEO walked up to the guy leaning against the wall and asked, "How much money do you make a week?" A little surprised, the young fellow looked at him and replied, "I make $300 a week. Why?" The CEO then handed the guy $1,200 in cash and screamed, "Here's four weeks' pay, now GET OUT and don't come back." Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked, "Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-off did here?" From across the room came a voice, "Pizza delivery guy from Domino's, waiting for the foreman to bring him today's list."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Reanna Douglas, 21, Lake Orion, Mich. Coach - Charged With Having Sex With 15-Year-Old Girl Reported by The Weekly Vice Reanna Douglas a 21-year-old girl's lacrosse coach at Lake Orion High School has been jailed after she allegedly had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old female student. According to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, an investigation was launched in August after the parents of a 15-year-old girl contacted authorities about an alleged sexual relationship that developed between Douglas and their daughter. Investigators say Douglas and the girl had an inappropriate relationship that began after Douglas was contracted by the school district to coach their girl's lacrosse team. The school district terminated Douglas's contract shortly after the allegations surfaced. Douglas was booked into jail and charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. Bond in her case has been set at $15,000.
Tech Support Pits From: Gretchen Re: Card picked up notice Dear Webby, Hi, I have a general question that I hope you will answer. I have sent 3 cards from Action Cat this month. However, I only received a notice today that the card I had sent this morning had been picked up later in the day. Is this a new feature that was activated on the site to automatically notify the sender when the card was picked up between the 15th (when I had sent the previous card) and today, the 25th? Or does it have anything to do with how the card is opened? It has been so long since I have received one of the cards from this site that I have forgotten if there is something that asks if the recipient wants to notify the sender that the card has been received. I would be very appreciative if you could let me know, as I was very anxious to be sure one of those cards had been received. I couldn't call the recipient as she has one of those phones that have the budgeted minutes and at the time I sent the card, she was out of minutes. But as she was sick, I was very concerned about her, so it would have greatly relieved me to get the same message then as I did today. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and effort, Sincerely Gretchen Dear Gretchen We have had the "Picked Up Notification" since the days, when you were still jail bait. You CAN turn that feature off, but on most card sites, the default is to send you a "Picked Up Notification". The SENDER is the one, who decides whether or not she gets that "Picked Up Notification". If the recipient has a full mailbox or does not check her email during the KEEP time, then the card falls off and you don't get a "Picked Up Notification". The KEEP time varies. Some sites have their KEEP time set to 7 days, others as long as 30, but there is a definite end somewhere. Even if a site's KEEP time is set for a whole month, if the recipient does not go and open the card in that time, then you won't get a "Picked Up Notification". On the better card sites you can also send an Archive copy to yourself, so that you can look up what you sent last time. With frantic lovers, that feature is quite important too. Just send a card to yourself to get familiar with the system again. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Keep Drawers Closed With Cellophane During a Move When moving, be careful not to use tape on your furniture to hold dresser or night stand drawers closed. The tape can easily damage the finish, especially in hot weather. Use a self clinging cellophane wrap. It can be purchased on different size rolls at hardware stores, UPS, and office supplies. It can be wrapped around lamps or fragile items also. By Linda from Arlington, TX Cellophane is the noisy clear wrapping, that does not stretch. I think she means a cling or shrink wrap like Saran Wrap. Grocery stores have it in widths from 8" to 16". Industrial and commercial suppliers have it in 24"to 60" widths in mile long rolls at considerably lower prices. If you use the big, fat commercial rolls, then when done, give the left over roll to the next person, who moves, so that your kids are not tempted to shrinkwrap your car, or the principal's car. For kids, that stuff is hard to resist! They even use it across cat doors, just to make a youTube movie of the surprised look on the cat's face, when it runs into the invisible barrier. And of course toilets and bath tubs are favorite targets too. If you can't hide it, give it away! Surprisingly, they don't play with the short and thin roll in the kitchen drawer. Have FUN!

Catherine, a RN, was unhappy with her job, so she submitted her resignation. She was sure she'd have no trouble finding a new position, because of the nursing shortage in her area. She e-mailed cover letters to dozens of potential employers and attached her resume to each one. Two weeks later, Catherine was dismayed and bewildered that she had not received even one request for an interview. Finally she received a message from a prospective employer that explained the reason she hadn't heard from anyone else. It read: "Your resume was not attached as stated. I do, however, want to thank you for the lasagna recipe."
