Best way to transfer pictures from camera to computer 



Good Morning,  !

Today is Sunday, November 17.

The injectins this Wednesday seemed quite different.
apparently they either forgot the freezing or tried some
different type, that did not work. Yipe!
The doctor just shrugged and stabbed the other eye too. 
The freezing and cleaning and disinfecting is done by some
low pay helper, who seems to be doing 50 - 60 patients per 
hour. Considering that there is a new one every month, I 
guess they get minimum wage and upgrade to McDonalds as 
soon as they can. Well, that's life under Medicare, what you
will be getting under Obamacare. I can't really complain, 
though. They are paying for the $2500 per injection, what
the doctor claims it would be without Medicare.

Sometime in December, he told me, I have to go for Cataract
operations. He figures they can do one eye at a time and
I could continue reading and writing with the other eye.

-16°C
Feels like -26
P.O.P: 80%
Snow: 1-3 cm
Wind N 25 km/h
Wind gusts 60 km/h
Humidity 78%

Those gusts, laden with snow and frost crystals, 
are a nasty reminder, that I should have moved to 
Floriduh, when I had the chance, because Gullible Warming
is FINISHED and Climate Change changed the weather back 
to Global Cooling.

Have FUN!

Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing. --- Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919) Times have not become more violent. They have just become more televised. --- Marilyn Manson (1969 - )
Three old men are at the doctor for a memory test. The doctor says to the first old man, "What is three times three?" "274," was his reply. The doctor says to the second man, "It's your turn. What is three times three?" "Tuesday," replies the second man. The doctor says to the third man, "Okay, your turn. What's three times three?" "Nine," says the third man. "That's great!" says the doctor. "How did you get that?" "Simple," says the third man. "I subtracted 274 from Tuesday."
A first grade teacher was a die-hard Colorado Avalanche fan. She told the class to raise their hands if they were true Avalanche fans like her. The children, not knowing what an Avalanche fan was, raised their hands. They too wanted to be just like the teacher, all except one little girl. She did not raise her hand. The teacher approached her and asked, "Why aren't you an Avalanche fan? They are the best team and I love them." The little girl responded, "I'm a Detroit Red Wings fan." The teacher asked, "Why are you a Wings fan?" The little girl said, "Well, my parents are Wings fans." The teacher, getting upset at this point, stated, "Just because your parents are Wings fans doesn't make you one. What if your dad was a moron and your mom was an idiot, what would that make you?" The little girl thought for a moment and said, "Well, I suppose, that would make me an Avalanche fan."

Thanks to Dr. Connie for this report: What doctors say, and what they're really thinking: "This should be taken care of right away." I'd planned a trip to Hawaii next month, but this is so easy and profitable that I want to fix it before it cures itself. "Welllllll, what have we here...?" He has no idea and is hoping you'll give him a clue. "Let me check your medical history." He wants to see if you've paid your last bill before spending any more time with you. "Why don't we make another appointment later in the week." I'm playing golf this afternoon, and this a waste of time. --or-- I need the bucks, so I'm charging you for another office visit. "We have some good news and some bad news." The good news is, I'm going to buy that new BMW. The bad news is, you're going to pay for it. "Let's see how it develops." Maybe in a few days it will grow into something that I can prescribe something for. "Let me schedule you for some tests." I have a forty percent interest in the lab. "I'd like to prescribe a new drug." I'm writing a paper and would like to use you for a guinea pig. "If it doesn't clear up in a week, give me a call." I don't know what it is. Maybe it will go away by itself. "That's quite a nasty looking wound." I think I'm going to throw up. "This may smart a little." Last week two patients bit their tongues. "Well, we're not feeling so well today, are we...?" I'm stalling for time. Who are you and why are you here? "This should fix you up." The drug company slipped me some big bucks to prescribe this stuff. "Everything seems to be normal." Rats! I guess I can't buy that new beach condo after all. "I'd like to run some more tests." I can't figure out what's wrong. Maybe the kid in the lab can solve this one." "There is a lot of that going around." That's the third one this week! I'd better Google about this." "If those symptoms persist, call for an appointment." I've never heard of anything so disgusting. Thankfully I'm off next week.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Todd McCullough, 28, Saltsburg, PA Jailed After raping 16 year old girl in school Reported by Fox News A Pennsylvania high school industrial arts teacher allegedly raped a 16-year-old student in a back room at the school and authorities have not ruled out the possibility of additional victims and charges in the case. Todd McCullough, a 28-year-old teacher at Saltsburg High School, was arraigned Thursday on rape and related charges in connection to the April 2012 incident that state police say occurred in a back room near the shop where McCullough taught. But police only learned of the alleged assault last week after another student told school officials she was hearing rumors that she was “next on the list” of McCullough’s potential targets, Trooper John Matchik said. “More or less, the situation surfaced when another female student came forward and said she was hearing rumors that she was next on the list or that she’d be one of his targets,” Matchik said. “She wanted everybody to be aware of that.” A subsequent investigation revealed that McCullough had been physically touching the girl’s hips and shoulders for years and frequently commented on her appearance, Matchik said. Then, in April 2012, as the girl was readying for a school dance, including trips to a tanning salon, McCullough asked the girl if he could see her breasts. The girl repeatedly rebuffed the advance before McCullough eventually exposed himself to the girl in a back room near the shop where he taught, Matchik said. The girl was able to escape that encounter when the school bell rang, Matchik said, but a week later, McCullough allegedly pulled the girl out of another class to apologize. A few days later, McCullough allegedly asked the girl to stay after class before raping her in the back room, Matchik said. Investigators are now probing whether McCullough, a five-year veteran of the school, committed other crimes while teaching, Matchik said. “There’s a good chance additional charges could be pending,” he said. “This could be the tip of the iceberg.” McCullough, who remains jailed at Indiana County Jail, doesn’t have an attorney and declined comment after his arraignment Thursday. He is due to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Nov. 13. The Blairsville-Saltsburg School District, meanwhile, said it has been cooperating with police since the allegations surfaced. ----------- It is amazing, that the girl, who was raped, did not report the rape, even though it seemed to have been common knowledge around the school. Tech Support Pits From: Claudie Re: Transferring pix from camera Dear Webby, What is better, to take the chip out of a camera and use a chip reader to transfer the pictures to the computer, or plug the camera directly into the computer? Claudie Dear Claudie As long as you take the batteries out of the camera, you can usually safely, though slowly, transfer the pictures directly from the camera. If you don't take the batteries out first, they will get drained quickly. The batteries are usually 4 x 1.5 = 6 Volt, and the computer USB port is 5 Volt. That means, the batteries will try to charge the computer! Yes, sure, there is supposed to be a diode in there, preventing that, but in China, where they often use English electronic theory, they often get them backwards. With the chip removed, that problem does not exist. If you use a cheap chip reader, the transfer speed is much higher and the camera batteries are not affected at all. Personally, I always use a chip reader. Some old pre-XP chip readers won't work on Windows 7 and 8, but they are cheap enough to upgrade every ten years. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com First Aid Kit out of Eyeglass Case I have lots of old eyeglass holders, which open and close. They are no longer used because I made my own and put it close to the bed. I used the old eyeglass holder to hold bandages and a tube of triple antibiotic. It takes up very little space and is always handy. By Robyn Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

A friend of mine was in the hospital awaiting the arrival of her first child. When I telephoned the hospital to see if the baby had arrived, the nurse said it had. I asked if it was a boy or girl and was told that it was against hospital policy to give this information over the phone. "Fine," I said. "I can understand that. But can you tell me what she didn't have?" "It wasn't a boy," came the reply.
