Creativity is a drug I cannot live without. --- Cecil B. DeMille (1881 - 1959) Make sure to be in with your equals if you're going to fall out with your superiors. --- Jewish Proverb Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation. --- Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900) Write something to suit yourself and many people will like it; write something to suit everybody and scarcely anyone will care for it. --- Jesse Stuart
Two psychiatrists were at a convention. As they conversed over a drink, one asked, "What was your most difficult case?" The other replied, "I had a patient who lived in a pure fantasy world. He believed that an uncle in South America was going to die and leave him a fortune. All day long he waited for a letter to arrive from an attorney. He never went out, he never did anything, he merely sat around and waited for this fantasy letter from this fantasy uncle. I worked with this man eight years." "What was the result?" "It was an eight-year struggle. Every day for eight years, but I finally cured him. And then that stupid letter arrived!"

The passenger sat in the backseat, clutching the door handle and wondering if she could expect to survive the trip. The cabdriver sped through the crowded streets,weaving in and out of traffic. The passenger watched as one pedestrian after another ran to avoid being run down by her lunatic driver. She looked ahead and saw a truck double-parked on the narrow street,but not only did the taxi driver fail to slow down, he actually accelerated as he approached the truck. He slipped his cab through the available space with an inch or two to spare on either side. "Driver!" the passenger screamed,"Are you trying to get us both killed?" "Relax,lady," he said, "just do what I do. Close your eyes."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jay Riley, 21, Woodbridge, VA Jailed After Bringing Computer To Police Station, Asking Officers If He Was Wanted On Child Pornography Charges Reported by The Weekly Vice Jay Riley, a 21-year-old Virginia man, was jailed Tuesday after he allegedly brought his computer to a police station, and asked officers if they wanted to arrest him on child pornography charges. According to Prince William County Police, Riley was surfing porn sites on his computer last week when an "FBI Warning Message" popped up on his screen. Investigators say the message told Riley that he needed to pay a fine or be subject to a child pornography criminal investigation. Taking the message seriously, Riley packed up his computer, headed down to his local police station and asked officers if there were any child porn warrants for his arrest. Officers searched Riley's computer and found several inappropriate photographs and chat log messages Riley had exchanged with a 13-year-old girl from Minnesota. Armed with a search warrant, detectives seized a computer and several other electronic devices from Riley's home. Riley was booked into jail and charged with 3 counts of possessing child pornography, 1 count of using a communication device to solicit certain offenses involving children and 1 count of indecent liberties with a minor. The message that prompted Riley to go to a police station was later determined to be a virus that had been downloaded to his computer. Tech Support Pits From: Allan Re: Location for computer Dear Webby, What is a better location for my computer, in a snug cubbyhole on my desk, or on the floor below the desk? Allan Dear Allan On the floor, without any doubt whatsoever. You have to be able to get at the cables on the back. That alone rules out a snug cubbyhole. However, the most important reason is cooling. There is nothing that kills a computer faster than inadequate cooling. It needs unresticted air flow that it can draw through the computer ONCE. Not re-use the heated air for that. Just put it on the floor and once or twice a year vacuum out the dust bunnies and clean the heat sinks. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Fixing a Stuck Zipper If your zipper is stuck, use a graphite pencil along the teeth back and front and, presto, it works again! By shi Try to get the zipper to close again with just water as the lubricant. Iron the fabric that holds the zipper teeth. Wash and dry with the zipper still closed. Iron the fabric that holds the zipper teeth, again. While still hot, run a thin line of rubber cement or any clear flexible glue onto the fabric along the teeth. Just on the fabric side, not across the teeth! The idea is to stengthen the fabric, that had lost it's strength to hold the teeth at the proper angle. Let the glue set overnight. After that, the zipper will be like new. Especially if you had used a graphite pencil or a spray of WD40 to get home, the washing part is essential! Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at
Teddy came thundering down the stairs, much to his father's annoyance. "Teddy," he called, "how many more times do I have I to tell you to come downstairs quietly? Now, go back upstairs and come down like a civilized human being." There was a silence, and Teddy reappeared in the front room. "That's better," said his father. "Now in the future you will always come downstairs like that." "OK," said Teddy. "I slid down the railing."

The little girl was sitting in her grandfather's lap as he read her a goodnight story. From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek. She was alternately stroking her own cheek and his. Finally she spoke. "Granddaddy, did God make you?" "Yes, sweetheart" he answered, "God made me a long time ago." "Oh", she said, then "Granddaddy, did God make me too?" "Yes, indeed honey" he assured her. "God made you just a little while ago." "Oh" she said. Feeling their respective faces again, she observed, "God's getting better at it now isn't he?"
