Too much contrast with digital camera 



Good Morning,  !

Today is Monday, April 8.

Fresh snow and a very cold wind.
Today I have to drive to Calgary for a visit to the
colon cancer screening center. They want to screen
everybody, and won't to do the consultation over the
Internet. That sure does not inspire a lot of confidence!
Oh, well. Maybe the snow will melt by noon and it won't 
be too messy on the freeway.

Have FUN!

Being in politics is like being a football coach. You have to be smart enough to understand the game, and dumb enough to think it's important. --- Eugene McCarthy (1916 - 2005) The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time. --- Friedrich Nietzsche You can live to be a hundred if you give up all the things that make you want to live to be a hundred. --- Woody Allen
An engineer, a physicist, and a statistician were moose hunting in northern Canada. After a short walk through the marshes they spotted a HUGE moose 150 meters away. The engineer raised his gun and fired at the moose. A puff of dust showed that the bullet landed 3 meters to the right of the moose. The physicist, realizing that there was a substantial breeze that the engineer did not account for, aimed to the left of the moose and fired. The bullet landed 3 meters to the left of the moose. The statistician jumped up and down screaming, "We got him! We got him!" Then the moose charged and got all three of them.

The Supermarket near our house has an automatic mist machine to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of a thunderstorm. When you approach the milk cases, you hear cows mooing. When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cackle. So far I have not gone down the toilet paper aisle.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ann Marie Cummings, 44, Rochester, Michigan Charged With DUI After Driving On License That Had Been Suspended 24 Times Reported by The Weekly Vice Ann Marie Cummings, a 44-year-old Rochester drunk, was jailed Sunday after she allegedly drove while intoxicated on a license that has been suspended 24 times. According to police, a witness flagged down an officer around 12:15 p.m. to report that she had just been struck from behind by another vehicle that refused to stop. The witness was able to give a detailed description of the vehicle which allowed officers to locate and pull over the offending vehicle. Officers approached the vehicle and found a drunk Cummings behind the wheel. Investigators say Cummings admitted to striking the vehicle and stated that she fled the scene because her license had been suspended and she knew she would be arrested. When officers ran Cummings's name, they discovered that her license had previously been suspended a total of 24 times. Officers also discovered that there were six different outstanding warrants for her arrest. In addition, she was also in possession of a muscle relaxer that she didn't possess a prescription for. All in all, officers had 31 valid reasons to take her into custody. Cummings was booked into jail and charged with driving while intoxicated, and driving on a suspended license. Her bond was set at $2,000. She probably won't be driving again until Monday. Tech Support Pits From: Jane Re: Too much contrast Dear Webby When I take pictures tha include shaded areas and sunlit areas, or indoor pictures that are unevenly lit, I wind up with pitch black areas. I never had that problem when I was using film, and I see with your pictures, that not everybody has that problem. What do I need to do differently? Jane Dear Jane That is normal with really low end cameras, especially if they were a "Bonus" for subscribing to a cooking or fashion magazine, and if they have a tiny lens. Better cameras take a light reading through the lens, and average out a number of different spots in the picture, or read a spot at the center. Cheaper cameras have a light meter at the front that just averages anything in front of it. Most digital cameras let you stash a reading by partially depressing the shutter. Focus at a dark or shaded area, partially depress the shutter, and then point the camera to the picture composition you want. It will then take the picture as if everything was in the shade. Some areas will be slightly overexposed, and the sky may be white, but the shaded areas won't be black. A slightly more expensive camera will take care of that automatically. However, even with good cameras you will often drag a reading. For example, when I take a sunset sky picture, I usually point the camera up to where the sky is already darker, partially depress the shutter to lock the light meter, then point it to where I want to take the picture, and then click through. With the light meter locked for a darker area, the sunset colors come out much brighter and more vibrant. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keep Sun Hat in Car I am often driving into the late afternoon sun, and since I am short, the sun visor is not much help. Now I keep a hat with a floppy brim in the car so I can just pull the brim down on my face where I need it. This is also safer than being blinded by the sun.

"My poor man", said the kind old lady to the beggar, "it must be dreadful to be lame. But think how much worse it would be if you were blind." "You got that right, lady," agreed the beggar. "When I was blind, I was always getting counterfeit money."

The 12-year-old boy stood patiently beside the clock counter while the store clerk waited on all of the adult customers. Finally he got around to the youngster, who made his purchase and hurried out to the curb, where his father was impatiently waiting in his car. "What took you so long, son?" he asked. "The man waited on everybody in the store before me," the boy replied. "But I got even." "How?" "I wound and set all the alarm clocks and kitchen timers while I was waiting," the youngster explained happily. "It's going to be a noisy place this afternoon!"
