Skype problems 

Good Morning,  !

Today is Sunday, November 10.
Monday is Memorial Day / Veterans Day.
In Canada, that is a statutory holiday and Govt offices
and most companies except stores and restaurants will 
be closed. 

On Tuesday, Nov 13, I have to go for eye injections.

Thanks to all of you, who sent a donation!
I spent again most of the day sending Thank-You letters,
and don't think I missed anybody. I know for some
of you even one dollar is a scarifice, and I really
do appreciate that!

So far I am about three quarters of the way to what will 
be needed by Monday.

Just in time for Memorial Day / Veterans Day, Alberta has unveiled the new license plates: These are just for Alberta. The rest of Canada will, as usual, have to scramble to catch up. These plates are not restricted to veterans, but intended to raise funds for veteran support programs and to show respect for veterans. The 2005 Poppy plates are still available too. There are over 21,000 of them in use so far.
The other day, I had to make a call to the telephone company. Something was wrong with my bill. I dialed the number listed, and was astonished. I got the strangest recording. It said, "You have been connected to the correct department on the first try. This is against company policy. Please hang up and redial."

The coed came running in tears to her father. "Dad, you gave me some terrible financial advice!" she cried. "I did? What did I tell you?" asked the dad. "You told me to put my money in that big bank, and now that big bank is in trouble." "What are you talking about? That's one of the largest banks in the world," he said. "Surely there must be some mistake." "I don't think so," she sniffed. "They just returned one of my checks with a note saying, 'Insufficient Funds.'"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Richard Tyler Brandon, 25, Naples, Floriduh Jailed for getting stuck in chimney during burglary Reported by This guy might have stolen Santa's mode of home invasion, but he didn't make off with anything else. The Associated Press reports that Richard Tyler Brandon, 25, is accused of getting stuck in a chimney during a failed attempt to burglarize a Naples, Fla. home on Wednesday. Brandon's alleged accomplice, Derek Grenfell, told Naples police he tried to warn his friend not to go through with the ill-conceived heist. "I said, 'Dude, you're not Santa Claus, what are you doing?'" Grenfell said, according to police. Authorities were able to eventually free Brandon, who was not seriously injured. "It took us 30 minutes of slowly applying pressure on the rope and pulling him out gingerly through that 15- to 18-foot space which obviously seemed like forever," Fire Chief, Steve McInerny told KSHB. Brandon is charged with two counts of burglary and Grenfell is charged with two counts of burglary accessory after the fact. Tech Support Pits From: Susan Re: Major difference between Skype and Facebook Chat Dear Webby, The MAJOR difference between Facebook Chat and Skype is that Favebook Chat is fixed on a facebook page. You HAVE to keep that page open, and you can not continue working while you are waiting for a response. With Skype, you can move the chat window to the side, continue working and when the silly ninny or bozo, that you are chatting with, is responding again, you hear the ting and can jump back to the chat. By the way, I agree about the font size failure of Skype. BOOOOOO!!!! Microslop obviously can't cope with wide monitors. Watch out with the current update! The Marxists have taken over Microslop! The current update has nearly invisible a line about making MSN your home page and Bing your search engine. BOOOOOOO!!!! And then the Microsloppers tell you that future updates will be automatic, whether you want them or not! Do you REALLY want that kinda Marxist-Stalinist shit? Luckily they screwed up the current update, and it does not work. Don't click to update, just in case they have fixed the updater. It will lock you into their Marxist-Stalinist forced update, which is EEEEVIL!!!!! I have a VERY bad feeling about that! Skype was great for thirteen years, but now it is time to look for alternatives. Susan Dear Susan You are probably right about it being time to look for alternatives. I agree 100%, that Marxist-Stalinist forced updates by a company, that can't even fix their fonts, is not a good idea. You can see on the first few panels into the update how badly screwed up they are. Back out and don't do that update! Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Doll High Chair for a Plant Stand I had a baby doll high chair that wasn't being used. I put a plant in it, and it makes a good plant stand. It is so cute! By Robyn Fed from Hampton, TN Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
Bill and Doug were getting ready for the company awards dinner for the best salesman. Bill was in the running to win an award that evening and wanted to make sure he looked his best when he claimed his prize. He felt his luck was with him and was sure to win. He stood in front of the mirror to fix his tie but the mirror was crooked, so he reached over to straighten it out and it came crashing down on the floor. "Oh no," said Bill. "Now I am going to have seven years bad luck." "Nonsense," said Doug. My uncle once broke a mirror and he didn't have seven years bad luck." "Really?" said Bill, feeling much better knowing that. "Yeah really," said Doug. "His wife killed him for breaking her mirror."

I come from a large family, five sisters and three brothers. My sisters and I were looking through the family photo album one day. Picture after picture, we were all dressed in matching clothes. I asked my mother why she dressed us all alike, right down to the baby. She explained, "When we had just four children, I dressed you alike so we wouldn't lose any of you. Then," she added, looking at the pictures in the album, "When the other four came along, I started dressing you alike so we won't pick up any that don't belong to us."
