Automatic Search Suggestions 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Monday, October 7

Enough others are writing about the US Govt blocking the
Veterans from the war memorials and kicking seniors out
of their houses, if they are on leased land. So I will
completely avoid those topics.

The leaves on my Saskatoon bushes are turning colorful. 
Here is a picture of me in front of them today.

Have FUN!

In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted. --- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
While on my desk assignment in the Army, I noticed that my co-worker never answered his phone. One day I asked him why, and he said, "If you had to pick up the telephone and say, 'Statistical section, Specialist Stan Strastewskivich speaking,' would you want to answer the phone?"

> From Bill C My wife doesn't complain often, but once she was having a old-fashioned "heart-to-heart" with me and said, "Hon, you never listen to me. Every time I try to talk to you, you get this far-away look in your eyes after only a few seconds. Please promise me you'll try to work on that." The last thing I remember was replying, "I'm sorry, what was that you were saying?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Frank Harrison, 46, Tewksbury, MA Jailed After Rape Attempt Fails, Woman Cracks His Skull With Cooking Pot Reported by The Weekly Vice Frank Harrison, a 46-year-old Massachusetts man, was jailed Sunday after he allegedly tried to rape a woman - but ended up with several well-earned lumps on his head instead. According to Tewksbury police, officers were dispatched to an Extended Stay motel early Sunday morning after receiving reports about a man who appeared to be suffering from serious head trauma. Arriving officers eventually learned that Harrison received several lumps and cuts to his head after he allegedly entered a woman's motel room with a knife and attempted to rape her. When Harrison refused to let the woman leave the room, she reportedly grabbed a cooking pot and cracked him in the skull several times before fleeing the scene. Harrison was booked into jail and charged with kidnapping, assault to rape while armed, and indecent assault/battery. Tech Support Pits From: Jim Re: Search Suggestions Dear Webby, Hope you are OK from the injections and you are back with your newsletter soon. Surely do miss you in the mornings. Another question---trying to help a fellow with a computer set-up and we are missing the Automatic suggestions under search box while typing. I have this on mine and he on his old one, but the "newer" machine won't do this. This is the same even in his "Frontier Yahoo" email. Is there a setting somewhere that I haven't found yet that will do this? I am hoping that you know what I am talking about. I was searching for "Kelly Blue Book" the other day and as I typed Kel I got lots of suggestions. Really would like this feature. Thanks again for all. Jim Dear Jim Most likely just a routine Yahoo malfunction. Yahoo and yahoos do weird stuff. If one axes that thilly Yahoo tool bar, and uses FireFox and selects Google as the default search engine, then auto-complete and Search Suggestions work automatically, by default. If it is NOT set, right-click on the search window on the right top, and put a checkmark onto "Show Suggestions" The Search Window might be elsewhere, since you CAN drag it around. It is usually a small window like you see in the picture, and it has the icon of one of the many search engines in the spot, where you see the Google symbol in mine. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Covering Heat Registers To stop cold air leaks from coming in your unused heat register vents just cut up one of those large magnetic calendars for your fridge. I got 3 covers from a Dollar Tree calendar. You can paint them if you choose. By Melanie That is not a good idea at all. If a heat register is not blowing hot air, when the furnace is on, then most likely a pipe has come loose and is now blowing hot air into the basement. Covering that register just helps you to ignore the cause. When you get your furnace and ductwork cleaned, the pro will reconnect the fallen duct, and you will get hot air from that register again. That is routine for them. There is also another consideration. If you have cold basement air coming in from that register, it means you have a vacuum in the house due to warm air escaping somewhere. Use a candle flame to check window and door frames, light fixtures, fireplaces, etc. and reduce the escape of "paid for", heated air. You don't have to eliminate it completely, just reduce it to a trickle. Blocking the register will just shift the cold replacement of the escaped, "paid for", heat to another location. Remember, you can NOT eliminate a vacuum by blocking an intake. You have to block the outgoing escape locations, that create the vacuum. Another thing to remember, if you want to use warm attic air as make-up air to replace the escaped heated air, it will NOT go down into the basement wilingly. Warm air wants to go UP. You need a small duct-fan to force it down there. They are cheap and very quiet. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I got a call from an Individual who asked what hours the call center was open. I told him, "The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week". He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific time?" Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, "Uh... Pacific."

A man with a wooden leg wanted to buy fire insurance for his leg. The first actuary quoted an annual premium of $500, estimating that the leg would burn once in 20 years and the value of the leg is $10,000. The second actuary quoted an annual premium of $50. When the second actuary was asked how he arrived at such a small figure, he replied, "This situation is right here in the fire schedule rating table. The object is a wooden structure with an upper sprinkler, isn't it?"
