The ninety-five year old woman at the nursing home received a visit from one of her fellow church members. "How are you feeling?" the visitor asked. "Oh," said the lady, "I'm just worried sick!" "What are you worried about, dear?" her friend asked. "You look like you're in good health. They are taking care of you, aren't they?" "Yes, they are taking very good care of me." "Are you in any pain?" she asked. "No, I have never had a pain in my life." "Well, what are you worried about?" her friend asked again. The lady leaned back in her rocking chair and slowly explained her major worry. "Every close friend I ever had has already died and gone on to heaven. I'm afraid they're all wondering where I went."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Gregory Stambaugh, 57, and Karen Harrelson, 48 in York, PA Couple Jailed After Stabbing One Another During Argument Over American Idol Reported by The Weekly Vice Gregory Stambaugh, 57, and Karen Harrelson, 48, were jailed last Wednesday after they allegedly stabbed each other during an argument over which contestant should win 'American Idol.' According to police, Stambaugh and Harrelson had been watching the show at Stambaugh's home Wednesday evening when they got into an argument over who should win the season's title. Investigators say one of the suspects went to the kitchen, grabbed a knife and stabbed the other. In retaliation, the other suspect grabbed the knife and stabbed back. When police arrived at the scene, both Stambaugh and Harrelson argued about who stabbed first. Police believe alcohol was likely a factor in the altercation, and since they did not leak much and were internally antiseptic, Stambaugh and Harrelson were booked into the York County Prison and charged with assault. Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: Ad Blocking Deat Webby; Thanks for the camera hints on pixel size for emailing. I saved the pic to the pc then cut them down in size & emailed them. The receipants said they came thru really well. I read some where a long time ago that there is a way to stop the ad banners while surfing a site. Do you know how to do this? Also I am curious if using instant messenger for chatting w/ family & friends is a way of getting a virus? I do a virus scan twice a week & have one that is on auto protect all the time. Thanks for your wonderful help. Sharon Dear Sharon There are ways to block all ads. The easiest is not to go to sites, that use ads to help pay for their web space. Contrary to popular opinion, web space is not paid for by the Easter Bunny. When I really like a site, I click on every ad they have. I know they will get a few pennies per 1000 exposures, and I don't begrudge them that. The same when I buy something over the net, I try to approach it through an ad on a site that I like. It does not cost me any extra, but it may make the difference between them staying alive or not. If you do the opposite, and block ads, then you are looking for trouble. Many sites consider that as being a parasite, and they redirect your browser away from their good pages. Where they redirect you to, that's anyones guess and depends on how much they dislike parasites. Often those redirect targets are bad news. Nobody is getting rich off the ads any more, but they do help with the expenses of running a site. Re Instant Messengers: If you use AOL Instant messenger or MSN messenger or Yahoo messenger, then you better have VERY good security up and running, and pray a lot. Especially AIM seems to be a real trouble magnet. On the other end of the spectrum is Skype. It is encrypted and hostile stuff just does not make it through that encryption. We use Skype for tech support and there has never been even the slightest hint of any problem. And it's free! Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Cardboard To Clean Keyboard I found to my surprise that using cardboard from a toilet paper roll, about the size of a large paperclip, makes an excellent hair and debris picker-upper from off the keyboard. By Robyn A vacuum cleaner works well too. Since I stopped smoking a bit over two years ago, keyboards require a lot less cleaning. Nowadays I just hit them upside down over the garbage can, then give them a squirt of window cleaner and vacuum them. One swipe with the carpet beater is enough and all the keys are bright and shiny again. Today's keyboards are very sturdy and can take all kinds of abuse. Have FUN!

A father noticed that his son was spending way too much time playing computer games. In an effort to motivate the boy to focus more attention on his schoolwork, the father said to his son, "When Lincoln was your age, he was studying books by the light of the fireplace." The son replied, "But Dad, when Lincoln was your age, he was President of The United States!"
