Cherish all your happy moments: they make a fine cushion for old age. --- Christopher Morley (1890 - 1957) In this life you sometimes have to choose Between pleasing God and pleasing man. In the long run it's better to please God. He's more apt to remember. --- Pat Dickerson Son, always tell the truth. Then you'll never have to remember what you said the last time. --- Sam Rayburn (1882 - 1961)
A couple was relating their vacation experiences to a friend. "It sounds as if you had a great time in Texas," the friend observed. "But didn't you tell me you were planning to visit Colorado?" "Well," the husband said, "we changed our plans because, uh..." His wife cut in, "Oh, tell the truth, Fred!" He fell silent and she continued, "You know, it's just ridiculous. Fred simply will not ask for directions." ----------- And Fred obviously does not use MapQuest !

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Eran Hess, 44, Tel Aviv, Israel Israeli jailed for fake bomb scare at airport Reported by Ann An Israeli tourist set off a massive security panic at Newark Airport and grounded a plane to Miami yesterday after his family was bumped from a flight and he angrily threatened to create a bomb scare, officials said. Eran Hess was charged with “creating a false public alarm” after he allegedly flew into a rage at a United Airlines counter and started a chain of events that put security on high alert and delayed travelers for hours. The trouble started at about 9 a.m. after Hess, 44, arrived from Tel Aviv with his wife and two kids and was told that his connecting flight to Florida was oversold and that they would be on the next plane, and that their luggage was checked through automatically and already on the plane. Apparently he screamed: “I’m going to go over there and tell the TSA I put a bomb in my bag and get my bag back.” After that, Hess and family disappeared into the crowd. Naturally, those words set off an automatic alarm. The plane, that the bages were on was stopped, emptied and searched, and all bags were sniffed. Hess was located a few gates away, trying to board a plane of a different airline. He was arrested and hauled away. He will probably be released after his return flight to Israel has left. ------------ It has happened to me many times, that my luggage arrived by a different plane. When asking at the lost luggage counter for my luggage, they ALWAYS asked:"Has your plane arrived yet?" "No, ya silly bimbo. I am still up in the air, I just sent my body on ahead. Can't you tell?" Then they finally looked it up in their messages, and told me that my luggage would be at carousel #whatever in a few minutes, or had arrived already at some other carousel#. Not a big deal, and since they always made me laugh with the same idiotic question, no matter which airport, I have always looked at it as a joke. Nothing to get upset about. Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: Record radio to CD Dear Webby I love the news & fun. It's usually the 1st mail I open in this box. Some of your tech questions & answers have been very helpful. Thanks so much. I have a question about listneing to radio online. I have a program I usually tape off my reg radio that comes on every day at the same hour. If for some reason I do not get it I can go the the site online & listend to it again. Is there a way to tape this broadcast onto a cd? If so how mucht time will usually fit on 1 cd.I am using cd-rw that say 700mb & 80 min. Does this mean i can get 1hr +20 min on 1 cd? I appreciate your help on this. Thanks again, Sharon Dear Sharon If you compress the audio to MP3 or MP4, you will get a lot more than 80 minute's worth onto CD, and probably a month's worth of that brodcast onto a DVD. Use a program like Audacity to record the broadcast, save it as MP3 or MP4, and when you got a bunch of those recordings ready, drag them to a CD or DVD. You can add your own comments at the begin or end of each day's recording, and also name each file descritively. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Keeping Track of Paint Can Opener I attach a can opener, to the end of a paintbrush, that is removable. This makes things so much more simple instead of searching for the opener every time. By lnygaard I got mine tied to the step ladder with a shoe lace. Even if I don't need the stepladder for the painting, it is easy enough to find. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at
If you are paying for your own hot water, this is for you! Solar Water Heat This is not some wacky scam, that claims to make all of your hot water all of the time, but a simple pre-heater, like I have been recommending since the 70's. When there is sunshine, you pre-heat the cold water with the sun, and use the electrical or gas heater to just top it off a bit to get the precise temperature, that you are used to. The bulk of the heating is done by the sun. I used that system even in the Yukon. It works. You don't need any fancy space age or hard to find components. For the glazing you can even use clear corrugated acrylic, plexi-glass, or old windiows. The glazing is never touched by the water, it just holds off the wind and acts like a flat mini-hot-house for the pipe and outer tank. Very fast payback for Solar Water Heat!

Anecdotes of a Washington DC area travel agent, who thinks she understands from these anecdotes why we are having problems in the US. I've been a Travel Agent for thirty Years. Following are examples of why our country is in trouble! 1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window. 2. I got a call from a candidate's staffer, who wanted to go to Cape Town, I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, then she interrupted me with, "I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Cape town is in Massachusetts," Without trying to make her look stupid, I calmly explained, "Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Cape town is in Africa," Her response - click. 3. A senior Vermont Congressman called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that's not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state. He replied, "Don't lie to me, I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state! 4. I got a call from a lawmaker's wife who asked, "Is it possible to see England from Canada?" I said, "No." She said, “But they look so close on the map." 5 An aide for a cabinet member once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas. When I pulled up the reservation, I noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas. When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, "I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time." 6. An Illinois Congresswoman called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 am and got to Chicago at 8:33 am. I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois, but she couldn't understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, she bought that. 7. A New York lawmaker called and asked, "Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?" I said, "No, why do you ask?" She replied, "Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I’m overweight. I think that's very rude!" After putting her on hold for a minute while I ‘looked into it' (I was laughing) I came back and explained the city code for Fresno, CA is (FAT), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on her luggage. 8. A Senator's aide called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, "Would it be cheaper to fly to California, and then take the train to Hawaii?" 9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman who asked, "How do I know which plane to get on?" I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, "I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these darn planes have numbers on them." 10. A lady Senator called and said, "I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola, Florida. Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?" I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola, Fl. on a commuter plane. She said, "Yeah, whatever!" 11. A senior Senator called and had a question about the documents he needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded him that he needed a visa. "Oh, no I don't. I've been to China many times and never had to have one of those." I double checked and sure enough, his stay required a visa when I told him this he said, "Look, I've been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!" 12. A New Mexico Congresswoman called to make reservations, “I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York." The agent was at a loss for words. Finally, the agent said, "Are you sure that's the name of the town?" Yes, what flights do you have?" replied the lady. After some searching, the agent came back with, "I'm sorry, ma’am, I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find a Rhino anywhere." The lady retorted, "Oh, don't be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!" The agent scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, "You don't mean Buffalo, do you?" "That's it! I knew it was a big animal," she said. Now you know why Government is in the shape that it's in!

A vacationer called a seaside hotel in England to ask its location. "It's only a stone's throw away from the beach," he was told. "But how will I recognize it?" asked the man. Back came the reply: "It's the one with all the broken windows."
