How to back up Gmail? 

Good Morning,  !

Today is Tuesday, April 16.
It is snowing again.
We usually have half a day of "Crazy April Weather"
type snow, but this many days of snowing is not
normal. Al Gore's fear mongering and BS must have
upset Mother Nature, or else he just invented the 
whole BS at the wrong time, at the end of the 
warming ripple. 

Bad timing, just like Carl Sagan and his fear mongering 
about a coming ice age, right at the end of the 
cooling ripple.

Have FUN!

Invention is the mother of necessity. --- Thorstein Veblen (1857 - 1929) The best mirror is an old friend. --- George Herbert (1593 - 1633), 1651 There is only one thing a philosopher can be relied upon to do, and that is to contradict other philosophers. --- William James
A minister, a priest and a rabbi were enjoying the serenity of a country dipping pond. Since it was fairly secluded, they took off all their clothes and jumped in the water. Feeling refreshed, the trio decided to pick a few berries while enjoying their "freedom." As they were crossing an open area, a group of very old ladies from town approached them. Unable to get to their clothes in time, the minister and the priest covered their privates and the rabbi covered his face while they ran for cover. After the ladies left and the men got their clothes back on, the minister and the priest asked the rabbi why he covered his face rather than his privates. The rabbi replied... "I don't know about you, but in MY congregation, it's my FACE that they would recognize....."

Here is an old favorite: There are two nuns. One of them is known as Sister Mathematical (SM) and the other one is known as Sister Logical (SL). It is getting dark and they are still far away from the convent. SM: Have you noticed that a man has been following us for the past thirty-eight and a half minutes? I wonder what he wants. SL: It's logical. He wants to rape us. SM: Oh, no! At this rate he will reach us in 15 minutes at the most. What can we possibly do? SL: The only logical thing to do of course is to walk faster. SM: It's not working. SL: Of course it's not working. The man did the only logical thing. He started to walk faster too. SM: So, what shall we do? At this rate he will reach us in one minute. SL: The only logical thing we can do is split. You go that way and I'll go this way. He cannot follow us both. The man decided to follow Sister Logical. Sister Mathematical arrives at the convent and is worried what has happened to Sister Logical. Then Sister Logical arrives. SM: Sister Logical! Thank God you are here! Tell me what happened! SL: The only logical thing happened. The man couldn't follow us both, so he followed me. SM: Yes, yes! But what happened then? SL:The only logical thing happened. I started to run as fast as I could and he started to run as fast as he could. SM: And? SL: The only logical thing happened. He reached me. SM: Oh, dear! What did you do? SL: The only logical thing to do. I lifted my dress up. SM: Oh, Sister! What did the man do? SL: The only logical thing to do. He pulled down his pants. SM: Oh, no! What happened then? SL: Isn't it logical,Sister? A nun with her dress up can run a lot faster than a man with his pants down. (And those of you who thought it would be dirty, say two Hail Mary's.....)

Tech Support Pits FROM: Kay RE: Backing up Gmail Dear Webby, Hope all is well with you, and that you are getting along well with your eyes. My question..since yahoo mail has erased everyones email and you cannot get them to retreive it. I was wondering is there any way to save, export or anything else from my gmail? I know I'm paranoid, but never know when these sites will change. I don't have anything that would be the end of the world, but would hate to loose what I have in folders. Any info you could give me would be appreciated. Keep up the great newsletter, don't go a day without reading it. Thank you, Kay Dear Kay Most people do the opposite, they use Gmail as their back-up, since you can store 7 GIGAbytes of stuff there, and since they have a better record of keeping your data safe than any other method. However, if you want to back up your Gmail, there are a few methods. The most popular one, of course, is to set your GMAIL to POP, and pull it down with any full-feaured email program like Eudora, Pegasus, Thunderbird, etc., or even Outluck or Windows Live. You can keep the mail on Gmail, basically just download a copy. For example, the geniusses, who wrote Eudora, included the checkbox for "Leave Mail On Server" in 1993. Put a checkmark into that box, and Gmail acts as your Iron Mountain archive. Even if you lose your computer, everything is still safe up in the cloud. Most other email programs copied that feature. If you want to have a copy of your mail on a smart-phone or iPad, just sync. If you want to download your contacts into Windows, click on the tiny Down arrow beside "Gmail". It is very inconspicuous, about two inches from the top in the left side, cleverly hidden right in front of your nose. Pull that down and select Contacts In there, again cleverly hidden in front of your nose is "MORE",in the middle, a bit less than two inches from the top. Very inconspicuously. Pull that down and select EXPORT In there you can select which contacts to export, and in which format. It is all there, but since almost nobody ever does it, there is no simple shortcut to it. There are fancy programs, that go find that Export button for you, and then let you do the same, as if you had succeeded in finding it on your own. Now, if you want to export the mail texts to your computer, there is Gmail Backup at, I have never used it, since I have set my Gmail to forward to my Webby mail, which I manage with Eudora. In my case, Gmail is just an archive of what winds up in my computer automatically. There are no complaints about Gmail Backup, and like the DearWebby Humor letter, there is no PAY NOW button, just a Please Donate. If you do want to copy your old Gmails to your coomputer, that would be the program to use. Weed out your Gmail first. Search for any words or phrases used by spammers, and dump those mails. The same with mails from nuisances like ex-mother-in-laws or ex-boyfriends. Any mails, that you won't ever look up again, dump them. The reason for that is that the first back-up to your computer will be VERY slow and take a long time. Subsequent back-ups just add the new stuff, and will be much faster. Personally, I would recommend that you set your Gmail to forward to your ISP based email, as long as that is not Yahoo or Sbcglobal or MSN, set your Gmail to not delete mail after forwarding, and set your earth based email program to leave mail on the server. Then you can use whatever full featured email program that strikes your fancy. The most popular ones are Eudora, Pegasus, Thunderbird, Outlook, Windows Live, Outluck Depressed. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Duct Tape To Label Food Storage Containers I found myself wasting too much time, tape and energy placing labels on my frozen and fridge food containers. I bought WHITE duct tape and use a Sharpie to write contents on "labels" made from the tape. The ink comes off easily with soapy water for re-use, the tape remains securely on the lid "forever". I keep small precut "labels' stuck inconspicuously behind my cabinet door and can pull one off for immediate use on new lids. For fridge items, I can read the label tops without moving items around when searching for the mayo. By Avis Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at

A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, "Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit." "And why not, darling?" "You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning."

A teenager who had just received her learner's permit offered to drive her parents to church. After a hair-raising ride, they finally reached their destination. The mother got out of the car and said, "Thank you!" "Anytime," her daughter replied. As the woman slammed the door, she said, "I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to God."
