This evening during my walk the wind suddenly stopped.
Huh? No wind in Black Diamond?
Immediately the skeeters attacked. Not the slow tankers of
spring, that you simply hit over an eye with a stick, but 
the small and fast summer skeeters, that attack in swarms.

For about three quarters of a mile I was busy brushing them 
off and cussing them, until my blood remembered how to repel
them, a trick I have learned in the Yukon. 
After that, they dived at me like before, but before touching
down, suddenly veered away. And did not come back.
By the time I got close to home, they did not even do that, 
and just ignored me. Great!

After I got home, I was able to sit out on the deck to cool 
off and have some soup, witout getting bothered.
I am ready for summer!

I was buying a large bag of Purina dog food at Wal-Mart for my neighbor and was in line to check out. A woman behind me asked if I had a dog. On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting The Purina Diet again, although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital last time but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms. I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry & that the food is nutritionally complete, so I was going to try it again. I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a tall guy who was behind her. Horrified, she asked if I'd been poisoned. I told her no; I'd been sitting in the street licking my butt and a car hit me. I thought the tall guy was going to need help as he roared with laughter staggering to the door and fresh air.
>From Ethan When the U.S. Mint reissued two-dollar bills, I thought they might someday become collectors' items. I went to the bank and picked up a hundred, serially numbered and still in their original band. On my next trip to my parents' house, I gave the $200 to my mother and said, "Take good care of these. They might be worth something someday." Several months later I asked Mom if she was keeping the two- dollar bills safe. "Oh, yes!" she replied. "I deposited them in the bank the day after you left."

Many of you know Dorothy as the fanatical Alaskan Wolf Defender, who managed to block poisoning and aerial hunting for a long time. Nowadays Dorothy and her hubby Leo are busy building a "Monarch Waystation" to help save the Monarch butterflies. Some of the info about that is at Dorothy had sent me this about the The Miracle Toddler Diet People are always on the lookout for a new diet. The trouble with most diets is that you don't get enough to eat (the starvation diet), you don't get enough variation (the liquid diet) or you go broke (the all-meat diet). Consequently, people tend to cheat of their diets, or quit after 3 days. Well, now there's the new Toddler Miracle Diet. Over the years you may have noticed that most two year olds are trim. Now the formula to their success is available to all in this new diet. You may want to consult your doctor before embarking on this diet, otherwise, you may be seeing him afterwards. Good Luck !!! DAY ONE Breakfast: One scrambled egg, one piece of toast with grape jelly. Eat 2 bites of egg, using your fingers; dump the rest on the floor. Take 1 bite of toast, then smear the jelly over your face and clothes. Lunch: Four crayons (any color), a handful of potato chips, and a glass of milk (3 sips only, then spill the rest).

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Malia Brooks, 32, Simi Valley, Calif. Teacher Jailed After Having Sex With Student Under 14 Reported by The Weekly Vice Malia Brooks, a 32-year-old teacher at Garden Grove Elementary School, has been jailed after she allegedly had sex with a male student who was under the age of 14. According to police, an investigation was launched on February 22 after the alleged relationship between Brooks and the child surfaced. Investigators say the relationship began in late 2012 and continued for four months. The exact age of the victim has not been disclosed, but court documents confirm that the child is under the age of 14. Brooks, who is divorced with two children, was placed on administrative leave by the school district when the allegations surfaced. She then submitted her resignation on June 5. Brooks' attorney says his client suffers from "manic episodes" that she is now in treatment for. She was booked into jail and charged with lewd acts upon a child, oral copulation of a person under 14 years of age and three counts of genital penetration by a foreign object. Her bond is currently set at $2 million. Seems they really don't want her to run away. Tech Support Pits From: Re: Not getting responses I make web pages, but when I write to businesses if they want any, I never get any reply, and then they get pages made by somebody else.I just seem to remind them to go find somebody. Why is that? Dear FartBrain I can see why you would be sending potential customers to your competitors. 1) You are writing with a silly alias that is about as confidence and trust inspiring as a ski mask in a bank. Get yourself a domain like the real businesses, and base your address on that. 2) You blurt like a heckler or ill-mannered kid. Learn to write emails like the grown-ups. Greet whoever you are writing to by name. 3) You run away like a midnight vandal. Sign off properly! Except for other AOLers, very few people will write to you, if they have to invent a name for you. 4) Graduate from AOL ! Even though some AOLers claim that they have made money marketing to other AOLers, very few have any success trying to sell anything to people on the real Internet. You have too many other AOLers giving you a bad name. You might as well be using a jail address or admit that you are using FrontPage. No money in that. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Cleaning Keyboards I clean my keyboard using the alcohol wipes that are used to clean an area before sticking a needle in you. I have so many of them, the supply company keeps sending me a whole box, and I only use two or three each time I need them. I started to use them to clean the outside of the keys and between the F keys and the numbers and other breaks like that on keyboard. The other thing I do often is use the canned air under the buttons after I vacuum all loose grit up. Usually you will get all the hair out that way. If you have a key that is sticking pop the key off and use a cotton swab with alcohol to clean the area then replace the button, should work good as new now! By jancat from New England DON'T!!! First get rid of any and all cans of canned air, before another kid dies from "huffing" it. Read up on "huffing"! Secondly, blowing dirt around the Universe is generally considered a dumb idea. Here is the proper way to clean a keyboard: 1) Unplug the keyboard 2) Slam it upside down onto a laid out garbage bag, preferably outside. Ignore the breadcrumbs, but salvage paper clips, pins etc. That is why you slam it onto a bag laid out on something big and hard. 3) Thoroughly vacuum the keyboard 4) Take a big, soft shower sponge dipped in hot dishwater and squeezed, so that it does not drip, and wipe the keyboard in a slow, jiggly motion. Repeat if necessary. 5) Slam it upside down onto a fluffy towel and use the towel to rub it dry. That's all there is to it! If keys are sticking, don't get carried away pulling them off! If you do that with a laptop keyboard, you will probably never get that key to work again and have to replace the keyboard. With some keyboards it is safe to pull a key off, but by no means all keyboards! The safe method is to use WD40 with the tiny nozzle, and mist under that key from all sides, before you clean the keyboard. The WD40 will normally lubricate it well enough and make it work like new. However, it can also be a sign, that the mechanism is simply worn out and it is time for a new keyboard. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at
Anni showed up at the photo shop with an old picture of a former beau wearing a hat, She wanted to know if the photographer could retouch the photo and remove the hat from the picture. He convinced Anni, that it could easily be accomplished, he would just take a picture of it, and work on it with PaintShop Pro or Photoshop. Then he asked her what side of his head did the man in the picture part his hair on. - Thinking hard for a moment, Anni said, "I forget, but you can see that for yourself when you take off his hat."

Thanks to Martin for this story: A group of Americans was traveling by tour bus through Holland. As they stopped at a cheese farm, a young guide led them through a process of cheese-making, explaining that goats' milk was used. She showed the group a lovely hillside where many goats were grazing. These, she explained, were the older goats who had been put out to pasture when they no longer produced. She then asked, "What do you do in America with your old goats?" A spry old gentleman answered, "They send us on bus tours."
