Good Morning,  !

One of the fringe benefits of AccuRadio Internet radio is
seeing the info of what is playing. Right now they played
 	God Bless the U.S.A.
Artist: 	Lee Greenwood
Album: 	God Bless the U.S.A
Composer: P. Alger, G. Brooks

As I nudged the volume up, it occurred to me that
anybody singing or listeing to that, might get deprogrammed.

It is from the 80's, so if you want to refresh your memory,
here is a rendition of it on YouTube:

"Great moments in science: Einstein discovers that time is actually money." --- Gary Larson
A couple phoned a neighbor to extend birthday greetings. They dialed the number and then sang "Happy Birthday" to him. But when they finished their off-key rendition, they discovered that they had dialed the wrong number. "Don't let it bother you," said a strange but amused voice. "You folks need all the practice you can get."
A cowboy rode into town and stopped at the saloon for a drink. Unfortunately, the locals always had a habit of picking on newcomers. When he left the bar some time later, he realized that his horse had been stolen. The cowboy rushed back into the bar, handily flipped his gun into the air, caught it above his head without even looking, and then fired a shot into the ceiling. "Who stole my horse!" he yelled with surprising forcefulness. No one answered. "I'm gonna have another beer and if my horse ain't back outside by the time I'm finished, I'm gonna do what I did back in Texas. And let me tell you, I don't wanna have to do what I did back in Texas!" Some of the locals shifted restlessly. The cowboy had another beer, then walked outside to find his horse was back. So, he saddled up and prepared to ride out of town. The bartender wandered out of the bar and said, "Say partner, what happened in Texas anyway?" The cowboy turned back and said, "I had to walk home!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Briana Motley, 19, in Dallas, Texas Jailed After Dropping Infant On Head While Fleeing Store Security Reported by The Weekly Vice Briana Motley, a 19-year-old Texas woman was jailed after she dropped her baby daughter on her head while fleeing store security personnel who was attempting to stop her for shoplifting. According to police, security officers at a Macy's department store stopped Motley in the parking lot after she shoplifted several items and then left the store without paying the merchandise. Investigators say security officers watched Motley as she pushed a baby stroller around the store with a baby inside. Motley was also observed stuffing jeans, shirts, sweaters, leggings and other merchandise into the stroller before exiting the store. When security officers made contact with Motley, she responded by grabbing the baby and attempting to flee the scene. The escape attempt was short lived when Motley reportedly dropped the infant on her head. Paramedics called to the scene treated the baby for a lump on the forehead. Motley was booked into the Dallas County Jail and charged with theft and injury to a child.
Tech Support Pits From: Ginger Re: Resize Windows Dear Webby I think you covered this before but I cannot remember what the trick was to make sure all the windows I open are maximized. For some reason, about 2 weeks ago, all the new windows I want to open come up minimized and I have to click to enlarge them.... Thanks for your help I always enjoy your computer tips. Ginger Dear Ginger Which browser are you using? Which Operating System are you using? XP or W7? Normally that problem occurs only when you use Internet Explorer. All the others have solved that problem. By the way, "Minimized" means all you have is an icon on the task bar, "Maximized" is when a program fills the entire screen so that no other program peeks through on the side or above or below it. "Just Right" is when a program is open big enough to comfortably use it, but leaves a margin open on the side or top or bottom, where you see other icons or other programs, or when you use two or more programs side by side, for example a browser and an email program. "Just Right" is achieved with the bigger square at the top right corner of a window, or by double-clicking the top bar. Normally programs open again to the same "Just Right" size and location the next time you open them. "Just right" is the safest method. That way you can usually see it, when a site opens something behind the top window. Have FUN! DearWebby sorry I am using Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit with Internet Explorer. What I mean by "minimized" is that the screens that open are about 3x3" too small to do anything with until I maximize them. I would like them to open maximized.... thanks, Ginger Dear Ginger 3 x 3 is not minimized. Minimized is OFF the screen and just an icon on the task bar. Simply grab the edges of a 3 x 3 window and drag it to the size you want, for example almost full screen with just some icons peeking around it's edge. Then it is "Just Right" ( NOT Maximized!) Don't use the square at the right top for that, or double- clicking on the top bar. Do it by dragging the edges of the window. THEN close that program, and re-open it. It will open in the same size and position it was in, when you closed it. That method does not work with Windows Media Player. Microsoft programs are often not compatible with Windows. Have FUN!

Daily tip from Using Disposable Tablecloths to Wrap Large Items When wrapping larger Christmas gifts, instead of using a lot of wrapping paper and tape, buy a holiday tablecloth (Dollar Store or equivalent), and tie it at the top with ribbon. It works wonderfully! This can be done with any holiday or birthday present and is such a time saver. By Dreamwvr from Spokane, WA Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at

The recreational director of a mental hospital wanted to take a well-behaved group of inmates to a baseball game. The General Manager of the club was a little leery of this. When the Recreational Director said: "If I prove to you how well behaved they are, will you let them in?" The General Director agreed. The group of inmates came in and sat down. The Recreational Director shouted: "Stand up, nuts!" Everyone stood up. "Sit down, nuts!" Everyone sat down. "Look behind you, nuts!" Everyone turned around. Pleased with that, the General Manager let them in. About the third inning or so, he heard a tremendous commotion. People were running helter skelter. He asked what happened and was told that someone had called out: "PEA NUTS!"
