Text Edit for Mac 



Good Morning,  !

Today is Sunday, March 3

Europeans are still reeling from the horse meat "contaminated"
hamburgers, and suspiciously eying any youngster on a 
bicycle, not sure whether they should hope or worry, that
he or she turn into a Lance Armstrong. After all, he DID 
pedal up all those mountains and he DID raise over $100 
million for cancer research and DID look after his parents.

While they are still all confused about that, the next 
food scandal hit them. Some corn from Croatia was contaminated
with some fungus, that COULD cause cancer in mice.
Wasn't that LSD, that the North Americans grooved to in the
60's and 70's, and that the Europeans freaked out on in the 
80's, based on some kind of grain fungus?

Naturally, their media are taking advantage of it all and
are busy agitating the stress puppies.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Michael Stout, 19, Wright City, Missouri Jailed for Stealing Large Number Of Panties, Sex Toys And Used Tampons From Women's Homes Reported by the Weekly Vice Michael Stout, a 19-year-old Wright City bonehead, was jailed after he allegedly stole a large number of panties, sex toys and used tampons from area women. According to Wright City Police, officers were dispatched to a Wright City residence after Stout burglarized the home without realizing that a 16-year-old girl was still inside. Investigators say the girl, who was staying home sick from school, called her mother at 10:15 a.m. and informed her that someone had broken into the house. The mother immediately called police. The girl then fled the home, jumped into a car parked on the side of the house and then began honking the horn. She saw a man, later identified as Stout, fleeing from the home. Arriving officers used canine units to search a wooded area near the victim's home. The canine units led officers to Stout's residence where he lives with his mother. Detectives searched Stout's room and recovered 59 pairs of women's underwear, various sex toys and a number of used tampons. Police believe the stolen items belonged to at least four women who also live in the area. Some of the items in Stout's possession belonged to the 16-year-old victim. Stout was booked into jail and charged with four counts of burglary, four counts of stealing, and one count of property damage. His bond was set at $100,000 cash-only. Tech Support Pits From: Many Re: Text Edit for Mac DEAR WEBBY, thank you very much for all your help. I was able to, following your advice, to download my poems and storied to a flash drive, now i'll take them to my library and print them all, them go to FEDEX OFFICE to make additional copies. I have another QUESTION, am unable to find WORD PAD on our APPLE all in one, do you know where i should look? Again, thanks forr all your help, if we weren't so short all the time i'd be sending some funds your way. Maybe later we'll have extra. your friend ED. From Ric Lee In response to Ed's question about Word Pad for the Mac: Like windows, there is a simple text program. It's called Text Edit. It usually is in the pop up applications bar. Ric Lee ----------------- From Gary Re: your freind Ed and wordpad for Mac.. the mac is a pretty weird set-up until you get used to it, but it does have an incredibly user freindly word program called "Text Edit". When I got my iMac, it took me a while to find all the common thing it had built in and how to access the programs that weren't on my desk top. Mac has a thing called "Launchpad" in the quick satrt toolbar at the bottom of the desktop. The Launchpad icon is a little spaceship. If you click on that you'll see all of the programs that are installed on your machine. You can actually flip through pages of them as you get more stuff in your Mac. Text Edit is one of the factory installed programs and works just like Micro-Slop WordPad, it's just easier and more user freindly. MS Office and Open office will both open the files created on Text Edit. TE saves them as an .rtfd file, which I have had no problems sending to my work computer and opening with Office 2010.. the only thing I have had problems with is when I try to insert a picture into a text document... then word sees the insertion as a reference to a document on my home computer... Hope that helps Ed. Gary ------------------ From Samantha Tell Ed to look for "Text Edit" It is fairly easy to use, as long as you don't go outside of your machine. Nobody else can read it. You have to pick up the wacky .rtfd files with Open Office or Microsoft Office and save them in a more portable format before you send them to anybody. To make the files really and properly portable and readable by anybody, and printable by anybody, save them as PDF. That way all your formatting is nailed down and NO program will mess it up, no matter on what kind of machine. Samantha ------------------------- From Donovan The WordPad equivalent for Mac is called TextEdit. If you click on the magnifying glass in the top, right corner and type TextEdit, it will pop up. You should also be able to find it in the Applications folder. Donovan Hope that helps! Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Starting Seeds March is a great time to start your vegetable and flower seeds indoors. You can use any container. Here is how I am doing mine. I took the plastic lids off my storage boxes and filled it with seed starting soil. I moistened the soil and laid the seeds on top of the soil. I am getting a bumper crop. Keep them moist and in the sun. On warm days, they go on the porch. Tomatoes grow quickly. In May, they all go outside. I am a do it myself person and made this method up. It works.

The priest was instructing a class of third-graders at All Saints grammar school. He said, "There were two brothers, and one of them chose the wicked path of Satan. The brother was evil and corrupt and did great damage to many people, and wound up a convicted criminal in a tiny, dark cell. But, the other brother studied hard and became a great, rich, knowledgeable politician. Now, children, what is the difference between these two brothers, who started out in the same place, who together embarked upon life's stormy seas?" Little Johnny raised his hand and said, "Easy. One of them learned not to get caught."

Jones sighed, "Everything went wrong this morning, Boss. The wife decided to drive me to the station. She got ready in ten minutes, but then the drawbridge got stuck. Rather than let you down, I swam across the river -- look, my suit´s still damp -- ran out to the airport, got a ride on Mr. Thompson´s helicopter, landed on top of Radio City Music Hall, and was carried here piggyback by one of the Rockettes." "You'll have to do better than that, Jones," said the boss, obviously disappointed. "No woman can get ready in ten minutes."
