First thing - every single morning - one of the secretaries in our office opened the newspaper and read everyone's horo- scope aloud. "Gwen," said our boss finally, "you seem to be a normal, levelheaded person. Do you really believe in astrology?" "Of course not," Gwen answered. "You know how skeptical we Capricorns are."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Carlton Walker Jr, Middlesex County, Virginia Jailed After Calling 911 To Report She Was Too Drunk To Get Out Of Car Reported by The Weekly Vice Carol Frances Omeara, a 55-year-old Montana woman, was jailed Tuesday after she called 911 to complain that she was too drunk to get out of her vehicle. According to police, an officer was dispatched to Omeara's residence Tuesday at about 10 p.m. after she called 911 to complain that she was having trouble getting out of her vehicle. When the dispatcher asked Omeara if she was having a medical issue or mechanical issue, Omeara replied "No, I'm just too damn drunk." Officers arrived at the residence to find Omeara inside a vehicle parked outside of her residence. Omeara told officers that she had been at a local bar for about 5 hours before driving home. After arriving home, she spent the next four hours trying to get out of her car before calling 911. Officers administered a breath test which reported a blood alcohol content level of .311 or almost 4 times the legal limit. Omeara was booked into jail and charged with felony DUI. She remains held in lieu of $3,000 bond. Tech Support Pits From: Alma Re: Need a good alarm Dear Webby, I need an alarm that tells me it is time to check what is boiling in the kitchen. I am not playing games, just writing, but tend to get carried a way. What have you got in your bag of tricks? Alma Dear Alma I use Alarm It is free, easy to use, and 100% reliable. You can use the built in alarm sound, which is just as noisy as the Skype call to video, or you can use any music file, that you got. Yes, ANY. It is not intended as a bedside alarm to wake you in the morning, and it does not turn the computer on or bring it out of hibernation. It is strictly just for when the computer is running, but you are busy doing something other than watching the clock. I have used this Alarm for many years, and it has never let me down. Have FUN!
