Sorting Favorites 

Good Morning,  !

Today is Sunday, December 9 Today in 1968 Doug Engelbart demonstrated the first computer mouse at Stanford. There were improvements to it in the early and mid 90's. Since then, only the color of the plastic has changed, and the price. Dad told me on Skype that they had prepared the half pipes and jumps and runs for the snow board World Cup competition in the valley next to his, and tht the practising on Friday had gone well. Then over night, it snowed half a Meter. (half a yard). Since punching it down would have slightly altered the half pipes and stuff from the practise conditions, all the new snow had to be shoveled off as quickly as it fell. This year there was no need for artificial snow for that competition. The same for all the ski lifts and cable cars. Apparently they all start their season three weeks earlier than normal, only the hotels are bound to standard schedules, because all their chambermaids and dishwashers and cooks helpers, that come from all over the world to work for peanuts, sleep in crude nooks in an attic, and get a free regional season ticket for the ski lifts and cable cars, are not due to arrive until late in the month. By the way, is for sale. Somebody could make a nice profit with a domain like that! Have FUN! DearWebby

"If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it." --- William Arthur Ward
An Irishman's wife calls the doctor, stating that her husband has taken ill. The doctor asks if she had taken his temperature; she replied that she hadn't but would and then call back. When she hadn't called within a half hour, the doctor called and asked her what had happened. She said, "Well, I didn't have a thermometer, so I put a barometer on his chest and it said dry, so I gave him a pint of beer and he went off to work!"
>From Estelle I was having trouble with the idea of turning 30 and was oversensitive to any signs of advancing age. When I found a prominent gray hair in my bangs, I pointed to my forehead. "Have you seen this?" I indignantly asked my husband. "What?" he asked. "The wrinkles?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Brittany Sonnier, 20, Lake Havasu, AZ Jailed for Having Sex With Family Dogs After Confessing Fetish To Boyfriend Reported by The Weekly Vice Brittany Angelique Sonnier, a 20-year-old Arizona woman has been jailed after she allegedly confessed to having sex with her family's dogs. According to Lake Havasu City Police, an investigation was launched last month after Sonnier told her boyfriend that she was "into having sex with dogs" and had been having sex with her family's dogs since the age of 13. The arrest report further alleges that Sonnier engaged in both vaginal and oral sex with the dogs and "has them trained so that they don't act strange around other people." The boyfriend told police that he was "disturbed and freaked out" after Sonnier showed him images of people having sex with dogs. Sonnier also allegedly told him that she was interested in incest. Following the alleged confession, the boyfriend first tried to talk to Sonnier's father about what his girlfriend shared with him. The father reportedly told him that his daughter had admitted to having sex with dogs in the past, and that he was focused on trying to gain custody of his grandson (Sonnier has a toddler son). The boyfriend also told police that he believes Sonnier is pregnant with his child, but she has refused to take a pregnancy test. Following an investigation into the allegations, Sonnier was originally charged with bestiality. She was later charged instead with two counts of crime against nature.
Tech Support Pits From: Mark Re: Sorting favorites Dear Webby Is there a way to sort favorites alphabetically, after they have been jumbled by deleting some and then lock their old order and put new ones down below? Thanks Mark Dear Mark Yes, there IS an easy way, though Microsoft won't tell you. They tell you to mess with the registry. I found that if you right-click on the topmost grey menu bar and take the checkmark off the STANDARD BUTTONS, then instead of the favorites showing in a long list on the left side, they pull down from the word FAVORITES. Right click anywhere in there, and you will see the option to sort. After sorting, you can put the checkmark back onto STANDARD BUTTONS, and the favorites will remain nicely sorted for a while. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Patricia for bringing back this classic: Junior asks his dad, "Daddy, how was I born?" His dad sighs and replies, "Ah, my son, I guess one day you would have to find out anyway! Well, you see your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on MSN. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your mom and we met at a cyber-cafe. We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, but it was too late to hit the delete button. Six weeks later your mom sent me an instant message saying that her operating system was showing signs of unauthorized program activity from a self extracting file which had implanted itself in her BIOS. Then nine months later a little Pop-Up appeared and said: "You've Got Male!"
A motorcycle patrolman was rushed to the hospital with an inflamed appendix. The doctor operated and after the surgery advised him that all was well. However, in the recovery room the patrolman kept feeling something pulling at the hairs on his chest. Worried that it might be a second surgery the doctor hadn't told him about, he finally got enough energy to pull his hospital gown down so he could look at what was making him so uncomfortable. Taped firmly across his hairy chest were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn't come off easily. Written in large black letters was the sentence... "Get well quick...from the nurse you gave a ticket to last week."
