Tech support people like me spend our days on the phone with customers. Many like to chat while waiting for their computers to reboot. One man told me he'd been a long-haul truck driver. I'd love to drive a big rig," I said, "but I'd worry about falling asleep at the wheel." "Here's a tip to stay awake," he offered. "Put a $100 bill in your left hand and hold it out the window."

Deep in the woods of Tennessee on a country road, a speeder hit and killed a dog. The dog's owner stood nearby, a gun in his hand. The speeder looks at the owner sheepishly and says, "Looks as if I killed your dog." "Sure does." "I'm sorry. Was it a valuable dog?" "I wouldn't say that." "Well, suppose I gave you a hundred dollars. Would that be enough?" "Well, I don't know." "Two hundred dollars. That should do it." "Sounds good." The speeder reached into his pocket and came up with the money. Pressing it into the man's hand, he said, "I'm sorry I spoiled your plans to go hunting." "I wasn't going hunting. I was heading out to the woods to put that that mangy mutt out of his misery."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Henry Earl, Fayette County Jail, Kentucky Thanksgiving In Jail For World's Most Busted Man Kentuckian has been arrested more than 1500 times since '70 NOVEMBER 27--The World’s Most Arrested Man, a Kentuckian who has been busted more than 1500 times over the past four decades, will spend another Thanksgiving in jail, records show. Henry Earl, 64, is locked up in the Fayette County Detention Center--which one day should bear his name--following his arrest last month for public intoxication. Earl was collared outside a fast food joint by Lexington cops, according to jail records. Seen above in his most recent mug shot, Earl is due in court for a December 5 pretrial conference and a probation revocation hearing. Earl, whose arrests almost uniformly have involved alcohol, was first nabbed in Fayette County in July 1970, when he was 20, for carrying a concealed weapon. He would rack up 33 more arrests that decade, while adding 230 collars during the 1980s (most of which involved public drunkenness and/or disorderly conduct). Remarkably, Earl’s arrest rate increased in the following decades, in part because he rarely spent more than a couple of days in custody before being released (to offend again). Over the past year, however, Kentucky judges have been less lenient on Earl, who has begun spending two to three month stretches in custody per conviction. For the third time in the past five years, Earl will spend Thanksgiving behind bars (where he celebrated his 64th birthday on October 24). Earl, who has used the alias “James Brown,” has spent a total of nearly 6000 days in custody. ---------- Somebody should tell him that they now have showers outside of jail too, even in Kentucky. Tech Support Pits From: Belinda Re: Transferring files Dear Webby, There IS a bimbo proof alternative that you did not mention: Thumbdrives! They work even for blondes like me! They are like a USB drive without a cable, and plug directly into any USB port. Just plug it in, and the computer sees a new drive. Drag stuff onto it, unpug it, walk it over to the other computer, plug it in, and drag stuff off it. Sneaker-Net works! Belinda Dear Belinda You are absolutely right, and today's thumbdrives are unbelievably cheap. Some computer stores even give them away for free on special sale days. However, even if you have to pay for one, they are cheap. Don't go for a 64GB thumb drive. Just to haul files over to another computer an 8 GB drive will usually be more than enough. Have FUN!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Free "Kettlebell" for Exercise Instead of purchasing a kettlebell, use a large empty plastic laundry bottle filled with water. Tighten the cap before each use to be sure it is on tight. By Denise G. In case you wonder what a "kettlebell" is, it is a currently fashionable substitute for hand held dumbbells. Kettlebells are just dumbbells in the shape of old-fashioned tea kettles. The major difference is that unlike dumbbells, they are not yet available, unused, at garage sales, but have to be purchased at premium prices at fitness paraphenalia stores. THAT makes them fashionable. You can get exactly the same exercise from an ordinary closthes iron. They usually cost a dollar at garage sales, and are usually unused wedding gifts. They even have a handy cord attached, that you can attach to a light fixture or rafter in your exercise room, so that it won't fall on your freshly painted toe nails, when you drop it the moment your cell phone rings. You can of course use the same trick with Denise's laundry bottle. The claimed difference with kettlebells over dumbbells is that they are as unbalanced as a clothes iron or laundry bottle and use some muscles, that a dumbbell does not use. I am going to dig out my iron. I might even try to iron a shirt or two. At the speed of my luck, I will probably get the hang of that faster than finding a lady, who knows how to iron a shirt. I think those are about as extinct as unicorns. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

Thanks to Ann for this story: An observant woman died one day, and found herself waiting in the long line for judgment. As she stood there, she noticed that some souls were allowed to march right through the pearly gates into heaven. Others, though, were led over to Satan, who threw them into the burning pit. But every so often, instead of hurling a poor soul into the fire, Satan would toss a soul into a small pile off to one side. After watching Satan do this several times, the woman's curiosity got the best of her. So she strolled over to find out what the devil he was doing. "Excuse me, Prince of Darkness," she said. "I'm waiting my turn for judgment, but I couldn't help wondering, why are you tossing those people aside instead of flinging them into the fires of hell with the others?" Ah, those..." Satan said with a groan. "They're all from Seattle and from Vancouver, they're too wet to burn! I'll have to wring them out first."
