Is Skype Safe? 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Friday, January 4.
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!



Yes, I know that the voting at the Ezinefinder is down, 
as usual at this time of the year. They use a Mac system,
and that seems to be expected with them.
Don't worry, around January 4 or 5 they always get it
working again.

Have FUN!

Scott knelt in the confessional and said, "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned." "What is it, child?" "Father, I have committed the sin of vanity. Twice a day I gaze at myself in the mirror and tell myself how beautiful I am." The priest turned, took a good look at him, and said, "Scott, I have good news. That isn't a sin - it's only a mistake."
A drummer got bored with his instrument and decided to take up the accordion instead. Walking into a music shop, he spotted one he liked and asked the shopkeeper, "how much is that accordion by the wall?" The shopkeeper looked at him and said, "You're a drummer, aren't you?" "Yes, how did you know?" he said. "That's the radiator."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Nicole Dobol, 26, Islamorada, Florida Jailed After Attempting To Set Ex-Boyfriend And Woman On Fire As They Slept Reported by The Weekly Vice Nicole Ingram Dobol, a 26-year-old Islamorada woman was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly stalked her ex-boyfriend to his house, then set fire to his mattress as he and another woman slept. According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, Dobol reportedly ran into her ex-boyfriend's roommate at the Hog Heaven Bar and Grill, then asked him where she could find her former lover. The roommate stated that the ex-boyfriend had gone home for the night, but told her not to visit the apartment. Dobol ignored the warning and went to the apartment anyway. Investigators say Dobol forced her way into the apartment, snuck into her ex-boyfriend's room and found him asleep with a woman. That's when Dobol allegedly set fire to the mattress, then taunted the couple as they awoke to the smell of smoke. The couple, who were not injured by the fire, dragged the mattress to the apartment's balcony and extinguished the flames outside. The victim's roommate, who had returned to the apartment during the ordeal, said Dobol admitted to lighting the fire and told him that it "made her crazy" to see her ex-boyfriend with another woman. During Dobol's arrest, it was discovered that she also had an outstanding warrant for her arrest from a previous incident. Dobol was booked into jail and charged with arson and burglary.
Tech Support Pits From: Karen Re: How safe is Skype Dear Webby My daughter wants me to install Skype in my computer at home and in the office, to save on phone bills. How safe is that? Karen Dear Karen Skype is perfectly safe. It is so heavily encrypted, that even if somebody figured a way to intercept it, they could not extract any information. Also, it does not open any security holes like many other programs do. It's not just for talking for free over the net. It includes a chat module for typing back and forth and sending pictures, movies, music, links, etc. If both sides have a camera, any $10 camera will do, you can even video chat for free. I do that with my dad every noon my time, 9PM his time, for about 5 minutes. Voice quality is excellent, much better than over a phone. We have used Skype for tech support for a dozen years now, and have never had a problem with it. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Salad Spinner for Wringing Delicate Hand Wash Items Do you often hand wash delicate items such as hosiery or bras? For an easier way to wring out the water, keep a spare salad spinner under your sink! People with painful arthritic hands, or those recovering from surgery, may find it especially difficult to squeeze items dry. The center push-button or battery operated type spinners make the job very easy. Even the inexpensive crank ones work, in about a dozen turns and will hold two or three items.

>From David My mom got mad at my dad the other day and went shopping to relieve her irritation. When she returned home she informed him that she had purchased ten new dresses. "Ten!" he hollered, "What could any woman want with ten new dresses??" My mom calmly replied, "Ten new pairs of shoes."
