Windows open too small 

Good Morning,  !

Today is Wednesday, May 8

By the time you read this, I will be on my way to Calgary
to get more injections into my eyeballs.

You know the drill. Thursday, Friday, Saturday there won't
be a newsletter, because my vision is not good enough to
see what I am doing after those injections.

When I come home from there, I have problems undoing my 
shoe laces, and have to use the scissors, if they don't
Sunday morning I will be back in your mailbox.

Have FUN!

>From Fred I asked my wife if she had seen this morning's paper. She said, "Yes, I wrapped the garbage in it--just the classified section, though." I said, "But...but...I haven't seen it yet!" She replies, "Oh, you didn't miss much. Just some egg shells, coffee grounds and a few orange peels."

Thanks to Dave for this classic: When the office printer's type began to grow faint (this was one of the old dot-matrix printers), the office manager called a local repair shop where a friendly man informed him that the printer probably needed only to be cleaned. Because the store charged $50 for such cleanings, he said, the manager might try reading the printer's manual and doing the job himself. Pleasantly surprised by his candor, the office manager asked, "Does your boss know that you discourage business?" "Actually it's my boss's idea," the employee replied. "We usually make more money on repairs if we let people try to fix things themselves first."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to William Hotz, 59, Valley Stream, NY Jailed For Beating Woman To The Ground Over Expired Coupon For Free Ice Cream Cone Reported by The Weekly Vice William Hotz, a 59-year-old Valley Stream man, was jailed Wednesday after he repeatedly punched a female cashier in the face because she wouldn't accept an expired coupon for a free ice cream cone. According to Nassau County police, Hotz went to a local ice cream shop, and ordered a $3.50 ice cream cone. After he received his order, he attempted to pay for it with an expired coupon that offered "one free ice cream cone." When the 55-year-old female cashier told him that his coupon was expired and that he'd have to pay for his ice cream cone, Hotz became angry and stormed out of the shop. When the cashier followed him outside, Hotz retaliated by repeatedly punching her in the face. When officers arrived on the scene, Hotz took a combative stance, flailed his arms and refused to be taken into custody. Officers on the scene waited for backup before finally placing Hotz under arrest. The victim received cuts and swelling to her lip, but refused medical treatment. Hotz was booked into jail and charged with robbery and resisting arrest. Tech Support Pits From: Jim H Re: Windows open small Dear Webby Again I come to you, thanking you for you wisdom and asking another question. When I want to open a folder for a picture or whatever, the window shows small. I can expand it by dragging the corners, but the next time I open it, it is a small window again. Is there any way to have the windows open "full screen" every time. This happens with Eudora when I want to insert a picture and also with other programs. Thank you again, jh Dear Jim From what I can find on the net, that problem seems to be related to internet Explorer. People, who use FireFox or Chrome have never heard of that problem. I found three potential solutions: =================== to solve the problem regarding minimized window size of ie 8 in windows 7 and make it to a full window. Open only one ie8 window on the upper bar of the window right click it and choose size resize the window to its full view then go to file menu and choose exit. there you go open ie 8 it will surely default in full view lucas3x ==================== go to tools, internet options, under "Tabs" click settings, select "always open pop-ups in a new tab" Apparently explorer recognizes new windows as a pop-up. enjoy weez4real ==================== A FREE third party software is suggested which seems to do the job well ( but we still would like a proper response or fix from Microsoft. Ghistrem 2009 ==================== Take your pick or try them all, until you find one, that works. Or try FireFox. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Tennis Balls as Alternative to Dryer Sheets To save money and time when drying your clothes, instead of using dryer sheets or dryer balls, put three tennis balls in the dryer with your load. This saves you money by not having to buy dryer sheets and cuts drying time in half. The tennis balls can be used over and over. They also make your clothes softer. I do this every time.

Sister Mary, who worked for a home health agency, was out making her rounds visiting homebound patients when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it, a gas station was just a block away. She walked to the station to borrow a gas can and buy some gas. The attendant told her that the only gas can he owned had been loaned out, but she could wait until it was returned. Since the nun was on the way to see a patient, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car. She looked for something in her car that she could fill with gas and spotted the bedpan she was taking to the patient. Always resourceful, she carried the bedpan to the station, filled it with gas, and carried the full bedpan back to her car. As she was pouring the gas into her tank, two men watched from across the street. One of the them turned to the other and said, "If it starts, I'm turning Catholic.

The schoolteacher was taking her first golfing lesson. "Is the word spelled p-u-t or p-u-t-t?'' she asked the instructor. "P-u-t-t would be correct,'' he replied. "Put means to place a thing where you want it. Putt means merely a vain attempt to do the same thing."
