It often requires more courage to dare to do right than to fear to do wrong. --- Abraham Lincoln "A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward." --- Jean Paul Richter
Before boarding a bus, a man asked the driver, "What is the fare to the train station?" "Sixty cents," said the driver. As the bus pulled away the man raced alongside it until the next stop. When the doors opened again he gasped, "How much is the fare now?" "Ninety cents," said the driver. "You're running the wrong way."

>From Kara Why trick-or-treat is better than sex 10. You're guaranteed to get at least a little something in the sack. 9. If you get tired, wait 10 minutes and go at it again. 8. The uglier you look, the easier it is to get some. 7. You don't have to compliment the person who gave you candy. 6. It's OK when the person you're with fantasizes you're someone else, because you ARE someone else. 5. 40 years from now, you'll still enjoy candy. 4. If you don't get what you want, you can always go next door. 3. It doesn't matter if kids hear you moaning and groaning. 2. Less guilt the next morning. And the Number 1 Reason Trick-Or-Treating is Better Than Sex: 1. You can "do" the whole neighborhood!!! -------------- Personally, I disagree with Kara. I'm a Diabetic, and can do without candy quite well.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Luis Santana, 32, Waterbury, Connecticut Birdbrain: Man Arrested For Throwing Parrot Into The Face Of Pursuing Police Officer Reported by The Smoking Gun While being chased by a cop, a Connecticut man threw a parrot at his uniformed pursuer, who was bit on the hand when trying to shield himself from the feathered projectile. Luis Santana, 32, was arrested Tuesday night on several charges, including assaulting a police officer, disorderly conduct, and animal cruelty. A patrolman responding to a call about a fight encountered Santana on a Waterbury street around 10 PM. When Santana bolted, bird in hand, Officer Gary Kichar gave chase. While fleeing, Santana turned and threw the white parrot at Kicharís head. When the cop raised his hand to protect himself, the bird bit his finger. Kichar was treated at the scene for the bird bite. The parrot was initially turned over to animal control officials. Santana was apprehended while hiding in a nearby building. Free on bond, he is scheduled for a November 18 court appearance. Following the bird tossing, investigators learned of a burglary Tuesday evening during which jewelry and a parrot were stolen. Santana is a suspect in that crime, according to Deputy Chief Chris Corbett of the Waterbury Police Department. Corbett added that the parrot was later reunited with its owner. Tech Support Pits From: Wendy Re: Emergency Shutdown Dear Webby, I used to use the Task Manager to shut down whenever Windows got bunged up and stuck. CTRL ALT DELETE works sometimes, to get to the Task Manager, and CTRL SHIFT ESC works sometimes, but other times neither of them work. Is tehre some other way? Wendy Dear Wendy If you can't use it to shut down a stuck program and can't even use the keyboard any more, try this: Hit the Windows key and R It opens the command line and now the keyboard lets you type again, at least in that command line. Type: shutdown -r Now Windows will shut down one program at a time, but it will prompt you to save unsaved files. Save them. Once the program by program shutdown gets past the program that caused the trouble, you can cancel the shut-down, or you can let it complete. Best is to let it complete and do a reboot. Then run Crap Cleaner to clean up the mess left behind during the emergency shut-down. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Burnt Oil From a Frying Pan I forgot to remove my pan from the burner after frying taco shells, causing the oil to burn onto the pan. Approximate Time: 10 minutes Supplies: 1 Tbsp Dawn dish soap water Steps: Add Dawn dish soap to the pan. Fill the pan about halfway with water. Put the pan on the stove and boil for about 5 minutes. Be sure to set a timer. Using a metal spatula, carefully scrap away as much of the oil as possible. NOTE: Do not use a metal spatula on a non-stick pan. Empty the soap water into the sink. Then scrub with a sponge to remove any remaining oil. By lalala... A lot of old-timers will disagree with that. In the days of cast iron frying pans, you had to "season" the frying pan by burning an oil patina onto it. A properly seasoned frying pan is just as slick as a brand new Teflon "non-stick" pan. There used to be lots of jokes about a city girl visiting her boyfriend's Gramma and while doing the dishes, scrubbed the frying pan with Comet and steel wool to get down to bare metal. Naturally, when Gramma saw that, she gonged the city girl with the frying pan and kicked her out of the house. To season a frying pan, scrub it with Comet to remove any splotches of previous seasoning and make it look perfectly clean and even. Outside too. Put some peanut oil into the pan, and rub the outside with a rag dipped in the oil. You COULD use other oil, or even bacon rinds, but peanut oil can take more heat before it smokes. Turn on the burner and open all windows. It is going to get smokey! If dry spots appear in the pan before it smokes, pour more oil onto the dry spots. When it smokes, don't panic. It is supposed to. Keep the burner on. That opens the pores in the cast and allows oil into the pores. When the pan smokes evenly, THEN you can turn the burner off. Ideally, you still have some oil showing. That is good! Don't pour it out. Let the pan cool and the smoke waft out the windows. Once the pan is completely cold, THEN pour out the excess oil. You now have a frying pan that you can use to flip and even double trick flip pancakes and crepes. Naturally you don't let anybody use soap or Comet or steel wool on the inside of a seasoned frying pan. Just water and a sponge is all that is needed. The burned in oil patina is just as durable as today's fashionable Teflon, but whereas you have to throw away a Teflon pan after a year or so, a cast iron pan just needs scrubbing and a new seasoning.

In a trial, a Southern small town prosecuting attorney called his first witness to the stand. The witness was a grand motherly, elderly woman. He approached her and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know me?" She responded, "Why, yes I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've know you since you were a young boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you." The Lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, "Mrs. Jones. do you know the defense attorney?" She again replied, "Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women, one of them was your wife. Yes, I know him." The defense attorney almost died. The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench, and in a very quiet voice, said, "If either of you asks her if she knows me, I'll throw you in jail for contempt and personally throw away the key."

A cute young woman is giving a man in the barbershop a manicure. The man says, "How about a date later?" "I'm married," she answers. With a wink he says, "So, just tell him you're going out with your girlfriends." "Tell him yourself," she says. "He's shaving you."
