A little girl was diligently pounding away on her father's word processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?" he asked. "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."
Two Alaskan hunters get a pilot to fly them to out to hunt moose. They bagged two. As they started loading the plane for the return trip, the pilot said the plane could take only one moose. The two Alaskans objected strongly, "Last year we shot two and the pilot let us put them both on board and he had the same plane as yours." Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and both were loaded. However, even on full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down a few moments after take-off. Climbing out of the wreck one Alaskan asked the other, "Any idea where we are?" "Yeah I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Perry Trenka, Gainesville, Florida Jailed After Police Discover Gator Hides, Pot Plant On Property Reported by the Weekly Vice Gainesville, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Perry Trenka, a 51-year old Florida man was jailed Monday after police discovered alligator hides and a lonely pot plant on his property. According to police, an investigation was launched after detectives received a complaint that alleged Trenka had been killing alligators illegally and then hanging their hides on his property. When officers arrived on the scene, Trenka invited them onto his property without a warrant. Investigators say officers discovered two alligators hides on display on his property. One alligator hide was proudly nailed to a board in his machine shop. Officers also discovered gator meat in Trenka's freezer. (yum). Trenka told officers that he caught the alligators with a hook and line after they became stuck in a natural sinkhole on his property. He reportedly had no permit to hunt or capture alligators, according to an arrest affidavit. (He probably could not afford a licensed alligator trapper to get rid of the gators) While officers were walking Trenka's property, they discovered a lonely pot plant that had been planted in a black pot in Trenka's back yard. Trenka told officers that the pot plant wasn't his and that he was just watering it for a friend who had passed away several months ago. The alligator hides, alligator meat and pot plant were removed from the property as evidence. Trenka was booked into the Alachua County Jail and charged with felony charges of harvesting alligators without a permit and cultivating marijuana.
Tech Support Pits From: Eva Re: Double sided printing Dear Webby, I could not quite follow your description of how that QuickBook works. Would I need a special printer, that prints on both sides? They are godawfully expensive! Eva Dear Eva nah, don't worry. In the late 80's printer manufacturers all conspired to print in such a way, that the output came out face down. The users all hated that, but some big government buyers specified that, so that anybody walking by a printer, could not casually read anything secret. Keep in mind, in those days Governments used big huge IBM 3810 laser printers the size and weight of a small coffin. They were usually connected to a mainframe network, and dozens of users printed to them. You queued your print job and sauntered over to the printer, gossipped for a while with the other people waiting for their print job, and watched like a hawk to make sure nobody walked off with the last page of yours. In those days, it possibly DID make sense for print jobs to come out face down. However, they still do. That is why the output tray is usually "outboard", balconied out behind the printer. QuickBook makes you print a test page, tell it the results and put it back in according to the marks it prints on it. Depending on the results, it knows then, whether your printer prints onto the top or the bottom of the paper. Then for printing the back side, it tells you to either drop the stack from the output shelf straight down into the source drawer, or to turn it upsdie down. You can tell it to print a cover sheet with those instructions. Those instructions will be specific for THAT printer. You might have to turn the stack upside down side to side, - not length-wise - on your inkjet printer at home, but drop the stack straight down without turning or flipping on the laser printer at work. Don't worry, just put a checkmark on "Print cover page with instructions" and then follow those instructions. Each page will wind up with the correct page on the back. AND you can start with Page 1 on the left or the right, outside on the cover or inside, page numbering or not, just by clicking on checkmarks. Oh, and you CAN of course also print flip-down calendars! Have FUN! DearWebby

Working as a computer instructor for an adult-education program at a community college, I am quite aware of the gap in computer knowledge between my younger and older students. My observations were confirmed the day a new student walked into our library area and glanced at the encyclopedia volumes stacked on a bookshelf. "What are all these books?" he asked. Somewhat surprised, I replied that they were encyclopedias. "Really?" he said. "Someone printed out the whole CD?"

A woman whose fondness for the good life had taken its toll in added pounds - and girth - was being shown a Jeep by a salesman at an auto dealership. When the salesman's pitch had run its course, he sought to close with the typical line, "Now what would it take to get you into one of these?" Looking at the Jeep's high front seat, the woman replied, "A fork lift?"

>From Irene I hate the idea of going under the knife. So I was very upset when the doctor hold me I needed a tonsillectomy. Later, the nurse and I were filling out an admission form. I tried to respond to the questions, but I was so nervous I couldn't speak. The nurse patted my hand and said, "Don't worry. This medical problem can easily be fixed, and it's not a dangerous procedure." "You're right. I'm being silly," I said, "Please continue." "Good," the nurse went on, "Now, do you have a living will?"
Yes we CAN
