Computer up on blocks 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Saturday, August 3.

The raspberries are finally ripening. I managed to pick a
nice bowl full, even though the ripest ones went straight 
into my mouth. I filled them into the smallest fake 
Tupperware containers from Glad, about the size of a muffin
and just right for one meal from me. 

Is Tupperware still around? Have not heard about it for
many years.

Have FUN!

Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months. --- Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900) I've gone into hundreds of [fortune-teller's parlors], and have been told thousands of things, but nobody ever told me I was a policewoman getting ready to arrest her. --- New York City detective
A new convert to Catholicism decided to go to confession to deal with his transgression. In the confessional, he told the priest that he had sinned. "What was your sin, my son?" asked the priest. "I stole some lumber, Father," replied the man. "How much lumber did you steal?" asked the priest. "Father, I built my German Shepherd dog a nice new doghouse." The priest replied, "Well, that's not so bad." The man continued, "Father, I also built myself a 4-car garage." "Well, now, that's a little more serious." "Father, there's more. In addition to the doghouse, the 4-car garage, I also built a 5 bedroom, 4 bath house!" With a pause, the priest finally spoke. "That is a little more serious. I'm afraid you'll have to make a novena." "Father, I'm not sure what a novena is, but if you've got the blueprints, I've got the lumber!"

A farmer wins the ten million dollar lottery and is being interviewed. He is asked what he is going to do with all the money. "Oh, I guess the first thing I'll do is go and pay a few bills." "And what about the rest?" the reporter asks. Farmer shrugs. "Well, I guess they'll just have to wait"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Penny Dane, Daytona beach, Floriduh Police Sgt caught playing Internet porno games on the job Reported by Arca Max Penny Dane, a Daytona Beach Police Sergeant, resigned after she admitted posting nude pictures of herself online while on-duty, CBS affiliate WKMG reports. Dane, who worked in law enforcement for approximately 18 years, admitted to accessing and sending sexually explicit pictures as part of an online game called "Red Light Center," the station reports. Chief Mike Chitwood said he was flabbergasted after viewing the nearly 300 photos and videos that Sgt. Dane accessed using her city-owned computers and internet. In all, 177 images were found on Dane's office desktop computer, 97 images were found on the laptop inside her marked patrol car and at least 23 of the pics were of the sergeant herself. "Extremely pornographic in nature, and in several of the photos that we have since discovered, she was in her uniform," said Chief Chitwood. Investigators were reportedly tipped off by Dane herself when she accused another officer of sexual harassment. After a review of her own e-mails, the self-incriminating evidence was discovered. Dane's sexual harassment claims later proved false. Tech Support Pits From: Wes Re: Computer up on blocks Dear Webby, Putting your puter on a brick or some sort of wooden block will lessen the amount of dust that can accumulate around the base. Usually just a couple of inches makes a big difference. Wes Dear Wes Yes, that will help a bit with the bigger dust bunnies. However, it does not get you out of opening the side lid and vacuuming the inside and cleaning the heat sinks. Keep in mind that you have two or more powerful fans sucking unfiltered room air into the computer, getting the impurities deposited inside, and blowing clean hot air out the back. Yes, I know it's a stupid way to do it, and I have never hesitated to say so. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Practical Vases For Flowers The dollar stores have become very handy for me. When I go, I get several plastic (or glass if they have it) vases to keep at home. When I want to take flowers to someone, I purchase them for a reasonable price from either a market or a bulk produce place. I then clean them up, cut down the stems, and put them in one of the vases I purchased. I usually put a bit of water in the vase but not enough to spill when moving. This way, when I give the flowers to the recipient all they need to do is fill with more water and place wherever they choose. This way, they do not need to hunt for something to put the flowers in. I use platters or bowels from the dollar store the same way. This way, I do not have to worry about retrieving the item I brought my food in.

There was a little old lady from a small town in Arkansas who had to go to Texas. She was amazed at the size of her hotel and her suite. She went into the huge cafe and said to the waitress, who took her order for a cup of coffee, that she had never before seen anything as big as the hotel or her suite. "Everything's big in Texas ma'am," said the waitress. The coffee came in the biggest cup the old lady had ever seen. "I told you, ma'am, that everything is big in Texas," said the waitress. On her way back to her suite, the old lady got lost in the vast corridors. She opened the door of a darkened room and fell into an enormous swimming pool. "Please!" she screamed. "Don't flush it!"

An eighty-three year old woman finished her annual physical examination, whereupon her doctor said, "You are in fine shape for your age, but tell me, do you still have intercourse?" "Just a minute; I'll have to ask my husband," she said. She went out to the reception room and said, "Bubba, do we still have intercourse?" Bubba answered impatiently, "If I told you once, I told you a thousand times. We have Blue Cross!"
