Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, October 9

Thank you very much, Cookie!

My lawn is bright yellow. Completely covered with bright
yellow leaves. Around here that does not mean anybody would
go buy a rake and garbage bag, except maybe the newcomers
in the new subdivision.
Most people just look to the Western horizon and guess about
when the next Chinook will arrive.

The climatologists had predicted a Chinook for the weekend,
but with those bozos you got to be glad if they can correctly
predict that after Friday there is a good chance for a weekend.

They are still yapping about Gullible Warming. Yeah, right.
Down South, maybe. Here we had two degrees above freezing,
thin November rain and a gusty 20 - 40 mph North-West wind
while I took Copper, my neighbor's dog, for our regular 
evening walk. Tomorrow I will be wearing gloves!

Have FUN!

Talking much about oneself can also be a means to conceal oneself. --- Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)
>From Dave Morris Schwartz is dying and is on his deathbed. He is with his nurse, his wife, his daughter and 2 sons, and knows the end is near. So he says to them: "Bennie, I want you to take the Beverly Hills houses.' Sybil, take the apartments over in Los Angeles Plaza. Hymie, I want you to take the offices over in City Center. Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings downtown" The nurse is just blown away by all this, and as Morris slips away, she says to the wife, “Mrs. Schwartz, your husband must have been such a hard working man to have accumulated so much property." Sarah replies, "Property schmoperty...the schmuck had a newspaper route."

>From Dave A Jewish couple won twenty-million pounds on the lottery. They immediately set out to begin a life of luxury. They bought a magnificent mansion in Knightsbridge and surrounded themselves with all the material wealth imaginable. Then they decided to hire a butler. They found the perfect butler through an agency, very proper and very British, and brought him back to their home. The day after his arrival, he was instructed to set up the dining room table for four, as they were inviting the Cohens to lunch. The couple then left the house to do some shopping. When they returned, they found the table set for eight. They asked the butler why eight, when they had specifically instructed him to set the table for four. The butler replied, "The Cohens telephoned and said they were bringing the Blintzes and the Knishes!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to April Chamberlain, 30, Oklahoma City, OK Teacher jailed for passing out drunk at school with whisky in purse Reported by The Weekly Vice April Chamberlain, a 30-year-old substitute teacher at Milwood High School, was jailed Wednesday after she was allegedly found passed-out drunk with a bottle of whiskey in her purse. According to the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office, Chamberlain was substitute teaching a biology class while she appeared disoriented and persisted in using profanity with students. When students found Chamberlain passed out in the office, they contacted a coach who alerted the school principal. Investigators say Chamberlain was slow to wake up after she had been tapped on the shoulder and shouted at to "wake up." A deputy at the scene found an opened bottle of Canadian Whiskey in Chamberlain's purse and noted that she smelled strongly of alcohol. Chamberlain also reportedly slurred her words and appeared to be unsteady on her feet. She was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail and charged with public drunkenness. Following the arrest, Millwood Public Schools Superintendent, Cecilia Robinson, announced that Chamberlain was "only a substitute teacher". Tech Support Pits From: Jan Re: Free Anti-Virus Webby I was wanting to know IF you knew of any Free Anti Virus that was really good and did the job of protecting, I at times can not afford the ones like you use etc..and all. May sound strange but that's the way it is for me .. I want some thing that Can do the job and be trust worthy and thought you would be the one to know. Thank you so much and I hope you are doing ok with your eyes .... Jan Dear Jan If the free ones were good enough, then nobody would spend $30 a year for a better one. Depending on what one has to protect, an empty KFC bucket might be good enough for a motorcycle helmet. Personally, I prefer a BELL helmet. Full face. That is why I use McAfee McAfee Total Protection has all kinds of other goodies included. For example, if somebody sends me a link, and there is some kind of danger there, It pops a big, goofy warning screen with 2" high letters yelling: "WHOA! Don't go there! Back up!" and it blocks that site from sending anything, even cookies. Like that, it has all kinds of protectors built in, not just virus and malware protection. You just have to decide, whether your stuff is worth $30 - $40 a year, or whether it is no big deal if you lose it all and it is easy enough to start all over. If you decide to gamble, upload the important stuff to some cloud based archive. There are some free ones available, though I have not checked those out. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Give Halloween Pencils Instead of Candy For Halloween I give out Halloween pencils. You can get them at the Dollar Store, there is usually 10 in a package. They always get too much candy, and it can be used after the holiday. The kids love it, so do the parents! I have been doing this for years now.

Some people grow old gracefully, while others fight and scratch the whole way. Andy's wife, refusing to give in to the looks of growing old, goes out and buys a new line of expensive cosmetics guaranteed to make her look years younger. After a lengthy sitting before the mirror applying the "miracle" products, she asks her husband, "Darling, honestly, if you didn't know me, what age would you say I am?" Looking over her carefully, Andy replied, "Judging from your skin, 20; your hair, 18; your eyes, 16, and your figure, 25." "Oh, you flatterer!" she gushed. Just as she was about to tell Andy his reward, he stops her by saying: "WHOA, hold on there sweety! I haven't added them up yet!" Andy may eventually be able to walk again, if he is careful.

Little Johnny was in church when the wine and wafers were passed out. His mother leaned over and told him that he was not old enough to partake in the Communion. When the basket was passed around she leaned over once again to tell him to drop his money in, but Little Johhny held his dollar firmly in his hand, stating: "If I can't eat, I won't pay!"
