A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to payoff with your money. --- G. Gordon Liddy The Carbon Tax scheme is just a transfer of money from poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries. --- D.W. Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else. --- Frederic Bastiat, French economist(1801-1850) Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you! --- Pericles (430 B.C.) Marriage worked well in the 18th century because people only lived to be 40. --- Meade
Thanks to Sandie for sending this classic: The computer swallowed grandma Yes, honestly it's true. She pressed 'control' and 'enter' And disappeared from view. It devoured her completely, The thought just makes me squirm. She must have caught a virus Or been eaten by a worm. I've searched through the recycle bin And files of every kind; I've even used the Internet, But nothing did I find. In desperation, I asked Jeeves My searches to refine. The reply from him was negative, Not a thing was found 'online.' So, if inside your 'Inbox,' My Grandma you should see, Please 'Copy,''Scan' and 'Paste' her And send her back to me! This is a tribute to all the Grandmas who have been fearless and learned to use the computer. They are the greatest!!! -------------- And some GreatGrammas too!

Once there was a little boy who lived in the country. For bathroom facilities, they had to use an outhouse. The little boy hated it because it was hot in the summer, cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy determined that one day he would push that outhouse into the water. One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the little boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek. So he got a large stick and pushed. Finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away. That evening his dad sternly told him to sit down. Knowing he was in trouble, the little boy asked why. The dad replied, "Someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today. It was you, wasn't it, son?" The boy answered yes. Then he thought a moment and said, "Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn't get into trouble because he told the truth." The dad replied, "Well, son, George Washington's father wasn't in that cherry tree!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Anthony Thomas, 33, Ocala, Floriduh Florida man robs gas station after applying for job Reported by Helen Police say 33-year-old Anthony Thomas was at an Ocala, Florida gas station applying for a job. When the clerk leaves the counter, security cameras show Thomas reaching over and grabbing a handful of cash around $130 out of the open register. On Tuesday morning, shortly after filling out a job application with his actual name, Ocala police say Anthony D. T homas, 33, who was standing by a door in the gas station, pilfered money from a drawer and left. A surveillance video shows the theft, which occurred while a store employee wasn't looking. Thomas was arrested and faces charges of burglary, petit theft and resisting arrest with violence, according to the Ocala Police Department. OPD received a call from the Citgo, 1517 SW College Road in Ocala, at 9:48 a.m. A member of the agency's Special Deployment Unit and other officers got a description of the suspect. Thomas was a frequent visitor at the store, where he would buy cigarettes. The officer caught Thomas and held onto him briefly, but the suspect fought him off and squirmed away, according to OPD. The officer grabbed him again and, with help from officers Jeff Hall and Brett Casteel, was able to make the arrest. They reported finding most of the cash on him. Police said $130 was stolen. The suspect had been wearing a shirt during the burglary. Thomas had on jean shorts but no shirt or shoes when arrested. "I did not go into no cash register to get no money," Thomas told a reporter after his arrest. "I didn't rob no store." Tech Support Pits From: Nigle Re: Preserve picture file creation date Dear Webby, When I try to copy pictures to my back-up drive, Windows stomps over the file creation date with the copy date, which is totally useless. Is there a way around that? Thanks Nigle Dear Nigle Not officially, but there IS a way. You have to go into DOS, which is still underneath all the glitter. Click on START type CMS and hit ENTER. The scary black DOS screen pops up. In there, type robocopy /? That will give you all the command options for robocopy I would agree, that is a lot more information than almost all of you, except maybe Moe, are interested in or can digest. All you need, thugh is robocopy source destination Let's say the source are the pictures on the camera chip g:\ and they are in g:\DCIM\303CANON and the destination is the \pix\CANON\July folder on the E: drive. So your command would be robocopy g:\DCIM\303CANON e:\pix\CANON\July Actually quite simple, if you don't complicate it. Robocopy copies the entire folder by default. You can narrow that down by using wildcards, but for your purposes, the entire folder is probably best. Robocopy preserves the creation dates by default, which is usually of extreme importance to photographers. We really don't give a hoot about when a picture was copied from a chip to a drive, we want to know, when the picture was taken. Spend a bit of time getting familiar with robocopy. If typo-ing that whole command is too strenuous on your typo finger, or if you want to delegate that chore to your spouse, you can write a BAT to automate it Use a plain text editor like NoteMaid, NoteTab, or even Notepad or WordPad. With the last two, you have to watch the file saving, They like to change the extension and piss .txt at the end. That kills a BAT. A BAT needs to have .bat as the extension. Save the file as pixcopy.bat or something like that, at a place, that you can find easily, for example right at the top of the C: drive. In the file write: @echo off robocopy g:\DCIM\303CANON e:\pix\CANON\July echo ****** Copied ******* PAUSE exit Save it. Then find that pixcopy.bat with the file explorer, and make a shortcut to it. Drag the shortcut onto the desktop. Change the icon to that shortcut to one, that makes sense for that. Now, when your spouse clicks on that shortcut icon, Robocopy copies all the files from the g:\DCIM\303CANON folder on the camera chip onto e:\pix\CANON\July and then prompts him with white text on a black screen: ****** Copied ******* Hit any key When he does, the black DOS screen disappears. If you want to be devious, you can write in the BAT: @echo off robocopy g:\DCIM\303CANON e:\pix\CANON\July echo ****** Copied ******* PAUSE echo not THAT key! PAUSE exit Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Make Your Own Pads for Protecting Hardwood Floors My dining room chairs were scratching my hardwood floors. Instead of spending money on the stick-on felt thingys that fall off, I cut furry fabric (I used a 2 liter bottle cap as a template for cutting) and hot glued them to the feet of all my chairs.

Garden Grass Snakes also known as Garter Snakes (Thamnophissirtalis) can be dangerous. Yes, grass snakes, not rattlesnakes. Here's why. A couple in Morro Bay, California, had a lot of potted plants. During a recent chilly spell, the wife was bringing a lot of them indoors to protect them from a possible freeze. It turned out that a little green garden grass snake was hidden in one of the plants and when it had warmed up, it slithered out and the wife saw it go under the sofa. She let out a very loud scream. The husband (who was taking a shower) ran out into the living room naked to see what the problem was. She told him there was a snake under the sofa. He got down on the floor on his hands and knees to look for it. About that time the family dog came and cold-nosed him on the behind. He thought the snake had bitten him, so he screamed and fell over on the floor. His wife thought he had a heart attack, so she covered him up, told him to lie still and called an ambulance. The attendants rushed in, wouldn't listen to his protests and loaded him on the stretcher and started carrying him out. About that time the snake came out from under the sofa and the Emergency Medical! Technician saw it and dropped his end of the stretcher. That's when the man broke his leg and why he is still in the hospital. The wife still had the problem of the snake in the house, so she called on a neighbor man. He volunteered to capture the snake. He armed himself with a rolled-up newspaper and began poking under the couch. Soon he decided it was gone and told the woman, who sat down on the sofa in relief. But while relaxing, her hand dangled in between the cushions, where she felt the snake wriggling around. She screamed and fainted, the snake rushed back under the sofa. The neighbor man, seeing her lying there passed out, tried to use CPR to revive her. The neighbor's wife, who had just returned from shopping at the grocery store, saw her husband's mouth on the woman's mouth and slammed her husband in the back of the head with a bag of canned goods, knocking him out and cutting his scalp to a point where it needed stitches. The noise woke the woman from her dead faint and she saw her neighbor lying on the floor with his wife bending over him, so she assumed that he had been bitten by the snake. She went to the kitchen and got a small bottle of whiskey, and began pouring it down the man's throat. By now the police had arrived. They saw the unconscious man, smelled the whiskey, and assumed that a drunken fight had occurred. They were about to arrest them all, when the women tried to explain how it all happened over a little green snake. The police called an ambulance, which took away the neighbor and his sobbing wife. The little snake again crawled out from under the sofa. One of the policemen drew his gun and fired at it. He missed the snake and hit the leg of the end table. The table fell over and the lamp on it shattered and as the bulb broke it started a fire in the drapes. The other policeman tried to beat out the flames, and fell through the window into the yard on top of the family dog who, startled, jumped out and raced into the street, where an oncoming car swerved to avoid it and smashed into the parked police car. Meanwhile, the burning drapes, were seen by the neighbors who called the fire department. The firemen had started raising the fire truck ladder when they were halfway down the street. The rising ladder tore out the overhead wires and put out the electricity and disconnected the telephones in a ten-square city block area (but they did get the house fire out). Time passed! Both men were discharged from the hospital, the house was repaired, the dog came home, the police acquired a new car, and all was right with their world. A while later they were watching TV and the weatherman announced a cold snap for that night. The wife asked her husband if he thought they should bring in their plants! for the night. That's when he left her and moved to Alaska. No snakes there.

Jack was driving home after a hard days work, and he was not in a good mood. Nothing at the office had gone right, and so when he was about to make the turn off and a car came wildly careening around the corner in his lane, he was furious! To make matters worse, the lady driving the car, a former neighbor whom he knew well, stuck her head out the window and yelled, "PIG! PIG!" Jack couldn't contain himself any longer. He rolled down his window, stuck his head out, and shouted, "BATTLE AXE!" Still fuming, he drove around the corner, and ran into a big pig, standing in the middle of the road.
