At which point should you switch from ink to Laser? 



Good Morning,  !

Today is Tuesday, April 2.

Space Spinach!
Was an april Fools story, that I made up, because
I have not been able to find any spinach in the stores for
over a year.

Wednesday morning I have to go for more injections into my 
eyeballs. That means no newsletters Thursday, Friday 
and possibly Saturday.

Have FUN!

A big-game hunter went on safari with his wife and mother-in- law. One evening, while still deep in the jungle, the Mrs awoke to find her mother gone. Rushing to her husband, she insisted on them both trying to find her mother. The hunter picked up his rifle, took a swig of whiskey, and started to look for her. In a clearing not far from the camp, they came upon a chilling sight: the mother-in-law was backed up against a thick, impenetrable bush, and a large male lion stood facing her. The wife cried, "What are we going to do?" "Nothing," said the hunter husband. "That stupid lion got himself into this mess, let him get himself out of it."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Mary Gullickson, 20, Fargo, North Dakota Jailed After Posting Craigslist Ad Asking For Sex Fantasy, Then Falsely Reporting The Encounter As Rape Reported by The Weekly Vice Mary Kate Gullickson, a 20-year-old North Dakota State University Student, was jailed after she allegedly posted a request for sex on Craigslist, then told police she had been kidnapped and raped. According to North Dakota State University police, Gullickson reportedly posted an ad on Craigslist, stating that she wished to experience a sexual fantasy that involved a mock kidnap and rape scenario. Gullickson reportedly communicated to multiple responders that she wanted to picked up off the street, bound with duct tape and then forced to have sex. She then requested that she be dropped off at the location where she was found. One of the ad responders agreed to Guillickson's request and role played the fantasy with her. At the conclusion of the encounter, Gullickson promptly went to police and stated that she had been kidnapped and raped. News of the purported rape spread across the NDSU campus, prompting police to devote a large amount of manpower and resources towards identifying a suspect in the case When news of the investigation reached the man who agreed to role play Gullickson's fantasy, he stepped forward to set the record straight about the incident. Investigators tracked down Gullickson's Craigslist ad and uncovered the email and phone number associated with it. Investigators also searched Gullickson's iPhone, which contained so many responses to the ad, Gullickson was unable to identify which response came from the man she ultimately accused of raping her. Guillickson also allegedly asked some of the responders to pay her $100 for the privilege of participating in the fantasy with her. Apparently none of them figured she was worth quite that much money. When asked why she lied to police about the alleged rape, Gullickson stated that her boyfriend forced her to report the encounter as a rape. Apparently they wanted some dummy to pay alimony for 18 years. Gullickson was booked into the Cass County Jail and charged with providing false information to law enforcement. She pleaded guilty to the charge at her arraignment and was sentenced on the spot to a one-year suspended sentence and a year of supervised probation. Tech Support Pits From: Kathy Re: When to switch to laser Dear Webby, At what point should I switch to a laser? Kathy Dear Kathy If you are printing rarely enough, so that your ink cartridges are drying up or causing problems, switch. Even the high quality cartridges and refill kits from Atlantic Inkjet dry up if you print only once a month. Lasers don't dry up. They use dry toner. The other reason to switch to laser is when you print a lot. Inkjet printers are really cheap, because they plan to get you with the ink. Laser printers are a lot sturdier and built to last many years, while printing huge volumes of paper. The printing cost per page is about 1/10 with a laser. Considering how much the price of Laser Printers has come down, I would say 150 pages a month is the cut-off point. I am using a DELL 1320c for the last 4-5 years, and toner from Atlantic Inkjet. The only time it stops printing is when it is out of paper or toner. Replacing toner is as fast and easy and clean as changing a yape cassette in a tape player. By the way, don't get conned by the term "Laser Jet". That is just an ink squirter with a misleading name. Have FUN! DearWebby

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!
