Good Morning,  !

Today is Monday, September 30

Last night's storm sure ripped a lot of branches off the
trees. It seems, the leaves still believe in Gullible Warming
and are reluctant to fall. Well, half of them have fallen,
but most of the rest came down still attached to branches.

Today the wind slowed down a bit, but not at altitude. 
When I was out for my walk I heard and eventually saw a 
plane towing a glider. Going against the wind, they looked 
like they were standing still and even going backwards, but 
steadily motoring higher. When they turned and were briefly 
sideways to the wind, they moved sideways at what looked like
about 150 and had to disconnect. The glider took off like fired
from a sling shot, and the tow plane headed straight for the
little rural airport. Probably to change underwear.

The glider pilot disappeared southward to the area, where 
they keep breaking world records for high altitude.

Have FUN!

Economics is extremely useful as a form of employment for economists. --- John Kenneth Galbraith (1908 - 2006)
>From Sue I'm a LIFE-AND-CAREER coach, and one morning a prospective client called for an appointment. I asked him what he wanted to get out of our sessions. "Clarity," he said very firmly. "And on what issues are you looking for clarity?" I probed. "Well," he said in a less confident tone, "I don't know."

A woman went into a hardware store to purchase a bale of peat moss. She gave a personal check in payment and said to the clerk, "I suppose you will want some identification." He replied, without hesitation, "No ma'am, that won't be necessary." "How come?" asked the woman. "Crooks don't buy peat moss," answered the clerk.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Zara Crank, 22, Redding, CA Jailed After Accusing Boyfriend Of Molesting Son, Later Determined To Be Diaper Rash Due To Her Own Neglect Reported by The Weekly Vice Zara Crank, a 22-year-old California woman, has been jailed after she allegedly accused her boyfriend of sexually assaulting her son over a diaper rash that was caused by her own neglect. According to police, officers were dispatched to Shasta regional Medical Center just before 5 a.m. Sunday after Crank called 911 and reported that her 4-year-old son had been molested by her boyfriend. While Crank was making her case, officers noticed a container of methamphetamine coming out of her shirt. Crank also appeared to be high on meth as she spoke to officers. When officers asked about the substance inside the container, Crank admitted that it was meth and stated that she had used it the night before. She went on to say that she had been up for four days straight and hadn't been taking care of her son. When officers turned their attention to the alleged molestation, Crank pointed out redness around the child's genital area that was later determined to be a diaper rash due to Cranks lack of care for her son, according to Cpl. Jon Poletski. Officers were ultimately unable to determine if anyone was watching the child during the 4 days Crank was high on meth. She was booked into jail and charged with suspicion of meth possession (pending lab results) and child endangerment. Tech Support Pits From: Leslie Re: Invisible counter Dear Webby, I want a counter on my page, but because it is still new, the count is embarassingly low. Is there a way to hide it? Leslie Dear Leslie Yes, sure there is. Just use a before it, and a after it. It will blend into your white page and not be visible, UNLESS you wipe the mouse over that exact spot. It is usually easy enough to select a spot where visitors are not likely to wipe their mouse over it. For pages that have a different color background, use that color as the font color of the counter. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Skunk Odor Recipe Works for Pet Stains A recipe for cutting through skunk odor is great for cutting through pet stains as well. It's a mixture of peroxide, baking soda, and dish detergent. I mix a small bottle of peroxide, half a cup of baking soda, and a couple squirts of Dawn. I saw a guy on PBS show how it chemically breaks down the skunk odor by breaking apart the molecules, so I decided to try it on cat and dog stains and it worked! I use it whenever our pets have decided to forget everything they have been taught. :) Source: PBS By dorinmoz from Sugar Land, TX Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
A troop of Brownie Scouts is touring a cathedral, and the children seem especially fascinated by the votive candles in front of a side altar. The leader asks if they'd each like to light one. She explains that it is customary to say a prayer asking for something or giving thanks. "Do you have any questions?" she asks. "No," says one little girl. "But if there's a pony outside, it's mine."

A couple of boys are fishing at their special pond off the beaten track. All of a sudden, the local game warden jumps out of the bushes. Immediately, one of the boys throws down his rod and starts running through the woods. The game warden is hot on his heels. After about a half mile, the young man stops to catch his breath, so the game warden finally catches up to him. "All right," the official gasps. "Let's see yer fishin' license, boy!" The boy pulls out his wallet and gives the game warden a valid fishing license. "Well, son," the warden pants, "you must be about as dumb as a box of rocks! You don't have to run from me if you have a valid license!" "Yes, sir," replies the young guy, "but that other guy who was back there, whom I don't know, he might not have had a license."
