Is MS Office ODF compliant? 



Good Morning,  !

Today is Thursday, October 31.
Happy Halloween!

Thank you, Larry!

Today the second last of a box of those Chinese spiral bulbs
burned out and I had to insert the last one. The claim, that 
they would last longer than incandescent lightbulbs is 
obviously a lie.

They might save some electricity, but due to their much 
higher cost, don't seem to be worth it. Once their price
comes down to the same as regular lightbulbs, I will try
them again.

Have FUN!

Golf appeals to the idiot in us and the child. Just how childlike golf players become is proven by their frequent inability to count past five. --- John Updike If a lot of people gripped a knife and fork as poorly as they do a golf club, they'd starve to death. --- Sam Snead Man blames fate for all other accidents, but feels personally responsible when he makes a hole-in-one. --- Bishop Sheen It's good sportsmanship to not pick up lost golf balls while they are still rolling. --- Mark Twain
>From Alf I had worked late, and my Labrador was so overjoyed to see me arrive home that he jumped up just as I leaned down. Our heads collided, and I sported an impressive shiner for several weeks. I had to repeat frequently to co-workers and friends how I came by it, and one day on the elevator, a secretary whom I hadn't seen for some time looked at my black eye and ex- claimed, "My goodness, what happened to you?" "The dog did it," I wearily replied. A man standing next to us looked over at me and said knowingly, "Ahh, he must be a boxer."

A feisty 70 year old woman had to call a furnace repairman. After a quick inspection the man put some oil into the motor and handed her a $70 bill for labor. "Labor charges!" she exclaimed. "It took you five minutes." The repairman explained that his company had a minimum one-hour charge on every house call. "Well, I want my remaining 55 minutes of labor," the lady responded, and she handed him a rake. The repairman spent the next 55 minutes in her yard bagging leaves.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Sergio Irey, 21, Sarasota, Floriduh Deadbet son got mother jailed after she gave him some well deserved slaps Reported by The Smoking Gun According to Sergio Irey’s mother, the 21-year-old Florida man is unemployed, lives at home rent-free, does not help out with household chores or bills, has allowed his college grades to plummet, and “spends all his time with a girl who is a bad influence on him.” Sergio’s loafing does not sit well with Rocio Irey, 45, who has explained to her son that he “needs to get his life on track, straighten up, get a job and start helping around the house,” police report. Police report this because last night Rocio and Sergio were arguing about his reported layabout ways in her Sarasota home. Rocio told a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputy that she became angered at her son “because he was not listening to her, he was back talking to her and he was being disrespectful by interrupting her and ignoring her.” So a frustrated Rocio slapped her son across the face twice, explaining, “I slapped him because he was being disrespectful to me, I’m his mother.” Sergio, who later acknowledged his churlish behavior, responded by calling the cops on his mother because he “became scared of her and didn’t know what else to do.” Sergio is more than a head taller than his mother. Though Sergio was uninjured by the slaps, Florida state law required that “the aggressor be arrested” for domestic battery. So Rocio was handcuffed and transported to the county jail, where she remains locked up. With his mom behind bars, it is unclear who will make Sergio’s bed or his lunch today. Hopefully his mother is smart enough to change the locks as soon as she gets out. Tech Support Pits From: Renata Re: Is Microsoft Office Open Document Standard compliant? Dear Webby, Is Microsoft Office Open Document Standard compliant, or are they being left behind? Renata Dear Renata Microsoft Office 2013 is Open Document Standard compliant. MS Office 2010 is partially compliant. Older versions are not. 2013 and 2010 versions are still too expensive and difficult to justify. Until they have come down in price on eBay and Amazon, just use Open Office or Office Libre or Corel Office. If you grew up with WordPerfect, you are going to love Corel Office. It is the same thing, just a new owner. And it still includes Quattro! I use it every day to do the graph with the votes for the top 4 and the page views. 9 fields daily, for a year, is no problem for Quattro and does not slow it down one bit. If your needs are not that critical, try Open Office. You won't be alone. 1,127,539 Downloads this Week, and it's only Wednesday. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Taking Good Pet Photos The best way for me to take photos of pets is next to a big window. It's always a good detraction, and you can control how much light comes through, with filters and shutter speed. By Paw Prints Pet Grooming from Sweethome, OR Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
A farm boy accidentally overturned his wagonload of wheat on the road. The farmer that lived nearby came to investigate. "Hey, Willis," he called out, "forget your troubles for a while and come and have dinner with us. Then I'll use the tractor to help you turn the wagon upright." "That's very nice of you," Willis answered, "but I don't think Dad would like me to." "Aw, come on, son!" the farmer insisted. "Well, OK," the boy finally agreed, "but Dad won't like it." After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked the host. "I feel a lot better now, but I know Dad's going to be real upset." "Don't be silly!" said the neighbor. "By the way, where is he?" "Under the wagon," replied Willis.

A man asked his wife, "What would you most like for your birthday?" She said:"I'd love to be ten again." On the morning of her birthday, he got her up bright and early and off they went to a theme park. He put her on every ride in the park, the Death Slide, The Screaming Loop, the Wall of Fear. Everything there was, she had a go. She staggered out of the theme park five hours later, her head spinning and her stomach upside down. Into McDonald's they went, where she was given a Double Big Mac with extra fries and a strawberry shake. Then off to a theater to see Star Wars - more hot dogs, popcorn, cola and sweets. At last she staggered home with her husband and collapsed into bed. Her husband leaned over and asked, "Well, dear, what was it like being ten again?" One eye opened and she groaned, "Actually I meant the dress size!"
