Chrome vs FireFox 



Good Morning,  !

Thank you, Texas Y.!

Today is Thursday, November 21.
The "warming", that was forecast for Wednesday, 
has been postponed. I am really cheered, when they
say it will "warm up to -13". I selected a parking spot
in the sun when I went to the post office today.

On Nov. 28, 2013, for the first and only time in any of 
our lifetimes, the first day of Hanukkah falls on the 
same day as Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving + Hanukkah = Thanksgivukkah.
Some excellent recipes there!

Have FUN!

After I'm dead I'd rather have people ask why I have no monument than why I have one. --- Cato the Elder (234 BC - 149 BC) By a curious confusion, many modern critics have passed from the proposition that a masterpiece may be unpopular to the other proposition that unless it is unpopular it cannot be a masterpiece. --- G. K. Chesterton (1874 - 1936)
As a young married couple, a husband and a wife lived in a cheap housing complex near the base where he was working. Their chief complaint was that the walls were paper-thin and that they had no privacy. This was painfully obvious when one morning the husband was upstairs and the wife was downstairs on the telephone. She was interrupted by the doorbell and went to greet her neighbor. "Give this to your husband," he said thrusting a roll of toilet paper into her hands. "He's been yelling for it for 15 minutes!"
The local high school has a policy that the parents must call the school if a student is to be absent for the day. Alice deciding to skip school and go to the mall with her friends. So she waited until her parents had left for work and called the school herself. "Hi, I'm calling to report that Alice is unable to make it to school today because she is ill." Secretary at high school answered, "I'm sorry to hear that. I'll note her absence. Who is this calling please?" "This is my mother."

A motorcycle enthusiast complained that he couldn't decide whether to buy a bike with high top speed and poor acceler- ation, or one with lots of torque and fast acceleration, but a poor top speed. Eventually he decided on the second one, because it cost a lot less. After all, torque is chaep!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Beverly Lunsford, 27, Paris, Maine Jailed After Snorting Drugs Before Attending Parent-Teacher Conference, Resisting Arrest Reported by The Weekly Vice Beverly Lunsford, a 27-year-old Maine woman, has been jailed after she allegedly showed up intoxicated to a parent-teacher conference and refused to leave without a fight. According to police, officers were dispatched to Dirigo Elementary School Wednesday afternoon after receiving a report that an woman had arrived at the school intoxicated. Investigators say Lunsford and her child arrived at the school to attend parent-teacher conferences. Witnesses at the school became concerned when Lunsford took more than 15 minutes to park her vehicle and appeared to be intoxicated. When officers questioned Lunsford about her driving, she claimed that her vehicle was having a power steering issue. She also claimed that she had taken prescription medication that she had a prescription for. Officers attempted to take Lunsford into custody after she failed a field sobriety test, however, Lunsford would have no part of it. Lunsford allegedly resisted arrest while screaming and swearing at the officer. Her resistance was so intense, according to the arrest report, the officer was forced to drag the woman from the school gymnasium all the way to his cruiser. Once inside the cruiser, Lunsford continued to scream and swear at other parents who were attending conferences. At one point Lunsford complained that she couldn't breathe and that her handcuffs had cut into her wrists. Officers responded by calling paramedics, who examined Lunsford at the scene. She was transported to jail following the exam. Lunsford later admitted that she had snorted busiprone - a drug that is used to treat anxiety. Officers later recovered the straw she used to snort the medication. She was booked into jail and charged with disorderly conduct, refusing to submit to arrest, unlawful possession of drugs and violating conditions of release. She was released after posting $500 bail. Tech Support Pits From: Hank Re: Google Chrome vs Firefox Dear Webby, I trust that you were able to meet this financial deadfall. I sure do enjoy your daily humor letter. I pray that all will go well with you eye injection. I have just installed Google Chrome in order to use gmail more effectively. How do you rate Google Chrome against Mozilla Firefox? I have used Firefox as my browser for several years and it is far superior To IE. I don't know about Chrome. What is your take on this? Thanks hank Dear Hank Chrome is very basic, but there are more and more add-ons getting written for it. Your FireFox most likely slowed down because of all the apps and add-ons and extensions you piled on it over the years. Not all of them un-install cleanly. If you compared a bare bones FireFox to a bare-bones Chrome, they would be about the same speed. Except for the sloppy and unreliable bookmarks in FireFox, with just a few add-ons it is the most comfortable browser around. If you try to get the same conveniences with Chrome, you probably can't. Not yet anyway, but even getting close will slow it down. The biggest factor for speed is a fast Internet connection, not the browser. Keep in mind, though, you CAN run Chrome side by side with FireFox, and use Chrome for Gmail and FireFox for browsing. AND you can even open Safari at the same time to read eBooks. The Mac Safari browser is rather lame, but has superior font handling and is easiest on the eyes for reading books. For reading books speed is not important. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Tissue to Tell if Heat Is Running Do you ever wonder if the heat is running but can't hear it because of the TV or some other noises? Tape a piece of toilet tissue to the register and when the heat is running, the air from the heat system will blow it up and you can see it waving. When the system is off, the tissue will be laying flat on the register. By Litter Gitter Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
>From Dave A good friend of mine warned me that, as my three daughters became old enough to date, I'd disapprove of every young man who took them out. When the time came, I was pleased that my friend's prediction was wrong. Each boy was pleasant and well mannered. Talking to my daughter Joanna one day, I said that I liked all the young men she and her sisters brought home. "You know, Dad," she replied, "we don't show you everybody."

Standing on the sidelines during a football game at my son's high school, I saw one of the players take a hard hit. He tumbled to the ground and didn't move. We grabbed our first- aid gear and rushed out onto the field. The coach picked up the young man's hand and urged, "Son, can you hear me? Squeeze once for yes and twice for no."
