How do you chnge folder icons? 



Good Morning,  !

Today is Friday, November 8.
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!



Today I am going to have to ask a favor of you, 
actually beg for a little favor.

I have been focusing on my work, which includes writing your
Humor Letter, and thought that the server bills were getting 
paid by my book keeper. Today I got a letter that stated, 
if I don't pay the outstanding $2500 by Monday, 
the servers will be turned off.
And, as usual, I am flat broke.

If you can send me a dollar with the PayPal Donate button,
and if enough of you can do that, we will stay online.

I know, some of you don't like PayPal and would rather mail
some pumpkin tarts or Gingerbread cookies, but I also know,
that a few of you might be able to afford two or three 
dollars. Please donate what you can to help me to be able 
to keep working!

Thank you very much!
DearWebby

"It is more rewarding to watch money change the world than watch it accumulate." --- Gloria Steinem
>From Hank a great Classic: There was a preacher whose wife was expecting a baby so he went before the congregation and asked for a raise. After much discussion, they passed a rule that whenever the preacher's family expanded, so would his paycheck. After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the Congregation decided to hold another meeting to discuss the preacher's salary. There was much yelling and bickering about how much the clergyman's additional children were costing the church. Finally, the Preacher got up and spoke to the crowd, "Children are a gift from God," he said. Silence fell on the congregation. In the back pew, a little old lady stood up and in her frail voice said, "Rain is also a gift from God, but when we get too much of it, we start wearing rubbers." And the congregation said, "Amen"

A Bedouin wandering in the Sahara happened upon an American dressed in a bathing suit, flip-flops, a big, over-sized t-shirt and sunglasses. The Bedouin gazed at him in amazement, "What are you doing all the way out here dressed like that!?" "I'm going swimming," the tourist explained. "But the ocean is eight hundred miles away," the Arab informed him. "Eight hundred miles!" the American exclaimed with a whistle of appreciation. "Boy, what a beach!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Paula Howard, 50, Kissimmee, Floriduh Jailed After Prostituting Three Young Daughters For $20 Reported by The Weekly Vice Paula Howard, a 50-year-old Florida Woman, was jailed Thursday after she allegedly offered to sell her three daughter's for sex. According to the Osceola County Sheriff's Office, Howard was arrested when she flagged down an undercover officer and then offered him her three daughters for sex in exchange for cash. Investigators say an undercover officer was posing as a "John" during a sting operation after the Sheriff's Office received complaints from other prostitutes about a woman, who was prostituting her minor daughters in the area. The undercover officer was standing in front of a bus stop at around 2:30 p.m. when Howard flagged him down and then motioned her daughters over to where he was standing. The three daughters, ages 16, 17, and 18, approached the officer and offered him his choice of the three girls for sex. One of the girls agreed to have sex with the officer for $20, according to the arrest affidavit. Howard was booked into jail and charged with child abuse, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, deriving support from proceeds of prostitution and other related charges. She remains held in lieu of $36,000 bond. The girls were taken into protective custody. Tech Support Pits From: Amanda Re: Change folder icons Dear Webby, At home I can easily change the icons for folders, but on my work machine I can't. Do you know a way around that? Amanda Dear Amanda You may need to install TweakUI or XP Powertoys from Microsoft. Another way around that is to drag the folder where it belongs, i.e. anywhere except the desktop, and make a desktop shortcut to it. Even with a barebones Windows XP or 98 you can change the icons for shortcuts. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Clean Bathtub with Krud Kutter We have a very large fiberglass shower unit that had the ugliest dark stain of unknown origin (probably not been cleaned in long time) on the bottom part. I had tried everything I could mix or muster up to use. Then one day I read on here about the Krud Kutter for wallpaper removal (BTW great for that zipped 4 layers in no time). I used the Krud Kutter full strength and a plastic scrubbie. Every bit of it came out, without much "elbow grease". Krud Kutter is well worth the price for a gallon. It cleans everything and is biodegradable with no obnoxious fumes either! Source: ThriftyFun of course! By Barby B. from Tennessee Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
My friend's preparations for a visit from her children included a trip to the bank. Waiting in line at the teller's window, she lamented to the middle-aged man behind her, "My children are in their 20s, and I'm still giving them money. When does it end?" "I'm not sure I'm the one to ask," the man said while glancing uncomfortably at a paper in his hand, "I'm here to deposit a check from my mother."

A famous classic, The Hawaii Bridge A guy is walking along the beach in Malibu, finds a bottle, and picks it up. Immediately, a genie pops out and replies, "Thanks for letting me out! For your kindness, I will grant you one wish." The guy says, "I've always wanted to go to Hawaii, but I can't because I'm too afraid to fly and ships make me deathly sick from claustrophobia. So...I guess, my wish is for you to build a road from here to Hawaii." "I'm sorry," the genie says, "But I don't think I can do that. Just think of all the work involved...think of the huge pilings we'd need to hold up the highway, and how deep they would have to be to reach the bottom of the ocean. And think of all the cement that would be needed. Plus, since it's such a long span, there would have to be gas stations and rest stops along the way. No, that is just too much to ask." "Well, there is one other thing I've always wanted," the guy replies. "I'd like to be able to understand women. What makes them laugh and cry, why they're so temperamental, why are they so difficult to get along with them...you know, what makes them tick?" The genie thinks a second, and then answers, "Would that bridge be two lanes or four?"
A veterinarian was feeling ill and went to see her doctor. The doctor asked her all the usual questions, about symptoms, how long had they been occurring, etc., when she interrupted him: "Hey look, I'm a vet -- I don't need to ask my patients these kind of questions: I can tell what's wrong just by looking. Why can't you?" The doctor nodded, looked her up and down, wrote out a prescription, and handed it to her and said, "There you are. Of course, if that doesn't work, we'll have to have you put down."
