Frozen HP Touchpad 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, August 4.

Thanks to all who wrote to tell me, that Tupperware is still
around.

Tupperware is overpriced, 
but considering the food and the 5:1 female:male ratio at 
traditional Tupperware parties, quite justified. If I got 
an invitation to a Tupperware party, I would  free up some 
time for it, and I would break a piggy bank and cash the 
coins to have plenty of money to buy stuff.

However, I won't buy it on the net and take money out of 
the mouths of some good Tupperware seller's kids.

I buy other stuff on the net, but  with Tupperware prices 
I insist on the traditional party.


The raspberries are sure tasting great and it is difficult
to put three into the basket for every one I eat on the spot.
With the Saskatoons that is a lot  easier. This fall I am 
going to trim the Saskatoon bushes down to six feet. Ten or
more  feet are ridiculous! Sure, the branches are flexible 
and can be pulled down, but that is unnecessary work. They
will just spread more to the sides. 

Have FUN!

>From Lisa Our family owned restaurant is the setting for many of our discussions about how to handle the customer who asks, "What's good tonight?" Obviously, we would never serve anything we didn't think was good. I braced myself one Saturday night when I heard the dreaded question posed to my husband. He calmly replied, "Anything over $13.95."

>From Ann One morning I was called to pick up my son at the school nurse's office. When I walked through the main entrance, I noticed a woman, curlers in her hair, wearing pajamas. "Why are you dressed like that?" I asked her. "I told my son," she explained, "that if he ever did anything to embarrass me, I would embarrass him back. He was caught cutting school. So now I've come to spend the day with him!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Joseph Lee Toben, 86, Virginia Beach, VA Jailed After Waving Sex Toy At Customers In Grocery Store Parking Lot Reported by The Weekly Vice Joseph Lee Toben, an 86-year-old Virginia man, has been jailed after he was allegedly seen in a grocery store parking lot attempting to solicit sex with a sex toy.

Tech Support Pits From: Sally Re: HP Touchpad Dear Webby, Have read you site for probably close to 15 years. I now have a problem and no one to ask. Got this item for Xmas about a year and a half ago. I got on the www site and looked for phone numbers to call and then spent the afternoon doing just that. Called all of the numbers and was passed on to another person who spoke so fast and not very clear. At the end was told to go do what I had already done and also to call a certain number that had been disconnected. What a waste of time. Small town, no repair people, and I am at a lose as to trash it and buy something else. Is a HP 10 inch and nice when working but maybe I am out of my league. Have had a WebTV for so long and has such a good e-mail program and they are going out of business at the end of Sept. Need to get something and get info transferred. Any help would be appreciated. A senior citizen, Sally Dear Sally Don't expect support from HP. From what I heard, they are busy giving the Taliban a bad name. I don't know anybody who accepts HP Touchpads for repair, because apparently that would cost more than to buy one off eBay. That just leads to arguments and unhappy customers. Consider buying one off eBay, or else buying a Google Chrome Book like the Acer C7 for $199 http://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/de ... html#ac-c7 It has everything you might need, actually a lot more than your HP touchpad had. It has a real keyboard AND a touchpad, and sockets to connect mouse, big speakers, big HiDef TV screen, etc. Plus, with Acer you get real support. It has * Browsing * Email * Hard Drive for storage * Cloud Storage for back-up * Instant connectivity, even on airplanes * Google Hangout for playing intercontinental poker or hearts or whatever, even with the players on different continents * Camera built in for video conferencing (Like I do every day with my dad in Austria) All of that is installed and working, the moment you unpack it and turn it on. You can, of course download and install all kinds of programs, but I have a hunch, the installed stuff will be plenty for you. It might be years before you add more programs. A Chrome Book is not a powerful starwars machine for juveniles to brag about on the school bus, but it has what you want, ready to run. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Tote Bags on Decorative Hooks I have two pretty, sturdy tote bags hanging on decorative hooks on my bedroom wall. You'd be surprised how much they hold. I have wallets, extra pairs of glasses, etc. Things that I don't want to get rid of, but don't want taking up room elsewhere. I found one of the pretty totes at a thrift store for $2.70 after my senior discount. By Betty from Lubbock, TX Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com
"Mr. Clark, I'm afraid I have some bad news for you," the doctor told his anxious patient, "You only have six months to live." The man sat in stunned silence for the next several minutes. Regaining his composure, he apologetically told his physician that he had no medical insurance -- "I can't possibly pay you in that time." "OK," said the doctor, "Let's make it a year."

Thanks to Phil from Oz for this story: One day some soldiers from a nearby Army camp saw a boy leading a donkey. They thought they would have some fun with him. "Say, boy," called out one of the soldiers. "You sure are keeping a tight rein on your brother, aren't you?" "Sure am," said the boy. "If I didn't he would probably join the Army."
