I figured that at age seven it was inevitable for my son to begin having doubts about Santa Claus. Sure enough, one day he said, "Mom, I know something about Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy." Taking a deep breath, I asked him, "What is that?" He replied, "They're all nocturnal."
This was yesterday's sunset. I didn't want to wait with Betty's morning picture any longer, so my pictures are here now. Click on the picture for the large version I noticed a pulsing blast. Interesting is that it is further back than the old microwave tower, but closer than the cell tower on the next ridge. Also notice the thin targeting beam versus the big fat blast.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Andre Laurens Crane, Lawrenceville, GA Sentenced To Life In Prison After Recording System Designed To Catch Wife Cheating Provides Evidence In Child Molestation Case Reported by The Weekly Vice Andre Laurens Crane, a Gwinnett County Georgia man, was sentenced to jail Thursday after he was caught molesting his step daughter by the very same audio recording system he intended to use to catch his wife cheating. According to police, Crane was arrested last October when an audio recording system he set up to catch his wife cheating proved to be his own undoing. Investigators say Crane barricaded himself inside his home and attempted to commit suicide after the audio system was discovered and listened to. The audio system reportedly contained evidence that Crane had been molesting his 15-year-old step daughter. The investigation later revealed that Crane had been molesting his step daughter since she was 11 years old. Crane was booked into jail and charged with six counts of child molestation/ aggravated sexual battery. During Crane's trial in Gwinnett County, jurors needed only an hour to find him guilty on all six counts. He was sentenced to life in prison plus 10 years. Crane now faces additional charges of child molestation and aggravated sexual battery in Hall County. Tech Support Pits From: Dan Re: emailing to phones Dear Webby, another question. i stumbled onto a program that allows a person to send an email from your desk top to a cell phone equipped with a screen.naturally i forgot where i found it, but i do know it works because i emailed my sister-in-law. would you happen to know the program name? thanks, dan Dear Dan The easiest way to do that is to use Skype. Add the recipient's cell phone number in the MOBILE slot. Then open a chat message to thet person. Look for the tiny switch in the left bottom corner and switch from Skype to SMS Mobile Now, when you type a message and hit Enter, it will show up as a text message on their mobile phone. If you don't have Skype, you can use TeleFlip You need the cell phone number of the recipient, for example 123 456 7890 Then enter 1234567890@teleflip.com into the TO line. Type up to 160 characters and hit SEND. If you have a big, beautiful signature box, disable that for sending SMS messages to cell phones. The message will usually get cut off at 160 characters anyway, but that can make it look silly. Instead of teleflip you can try the name of the carrier. TRY! Not all of them work that way all of the time. Bell, for example usually doesn't. Alltel: @message.alltel.com 1234567890@message.alltel.com Nextel: @messaging.nextel.com Sprint: @messaging.sprintpcs.com SunCom: @tms.suncom.com T-mobile: @tmomail.net VoiceStream: @voicestream.net Verizon: @vtext.com (text only) or @vzwpix.com (photos and video) You can get the address of a phone from the SMS gateway at http://www.freesmsgateway.info/ However, test it out, don't just put it into your address book. For example, for Barb, my neighbor, on Bell, the SMSgateway gives 4035541****@txt.bellmobility.ca Mails sent to that don't arrive at her phone. Flipping that little switch at the left bottom of the Skype message window does work just fine to send SMS messages to her. Keep in mind though, to turn that back to Skype or you will get yelled at for being a nuisance, if you are sending SMS messages, when you could send regular Skype messages, after the recipient is at her or his home machine again. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Homemade Laundry Detergent Making your own powdered detergent is a lot easier, less mess, and doesn't take up all the space. Here is the recipe I found online and now use. Ingredients: 1 bar Ivory soap (or 2/3 bar Fels Naptha) 1/2 cup borax 1/2 cup washing soda (found in the laundry aisle) Directions Grate 1 bar of Ivory soap (or other not strongly scented bar soap). Add 1/2 cup of borax. Add 1/2 cup washing soda. Mix together and store in air tight container. Use 1-2 tablespoons per load. This recipe is for a low-sudsing detergent and works especially well in high efficiency washing machines. Source: homemadelaundrysoap.net By Alice from Poteau, OK Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
The family had finally gotten their first dishwasher. The father liked to inspect every new thing that came into the house, so he stayed in the kitchen and watched the display count down all forty-four minutes of the dishwashing cycle. Suddenly he called out for his wife, shouting, "It's useless, the dishwasher is useless!" The wife was amazed that the newest appliance could be broken after only one use, but he insisted that because they had a water softener, the dishwasher was useless. She decided to look for herself, and there it was, on the inside door, next to the detergent dispenser: USE LESS WITH SOFT WATER

When Sam returned to the house one evening, his wife Sarah announced that the new cleaning woman they had hired had stolen two towels. "Yeah," said Sam very disinterested, and reclining on the sofa, "that wasn't very nice of her to do." "It certainly wasn't," Sarah said. "And they were the best towels we had... the ones we got from the Hilton Hotel on our honeymoon."
