The blizzard stopped and the wind slowed down while I went for my daily walk. -26, but the ruts in the unplowed roads sure heated me up. To have a bit better balance I tied Copper's chain around me like a ski lift tow-bar. That left my hands free for waving and regaining my balance. Copper had no problem with the ruts and figured we could go at normal speed. So, except for a frozen face, I worked up quite a sweat. Have FUN! DearWebby

An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it. --- Jef Mallett,
>From Lu The orthopedic surgeon I work for was moving to a new office, and his staff was helping transport many of the items. I sat the display skeleton in the front of my car, his bony arm across the back of my seat. I hadn't considered the drive across town. At one traffic light, the stares of the people in the car beside me became obvious, and I looked across and explained, "I'm delivering him to my doctor's office." The other driver leaned out of his window. "I hate to tell you, lady," he said, "but I think it's too late!"

An applicant was filling out a job application. When he came to the question, "Have you ever been arrested?" he wrote, "No." The next question, intended for people who had answered in the affirmative to the previous question, was "Why?" The applicant answered it anyway: "Never got caught."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Amber Gray, 21, Carson City, Nevada Jailed After Burning Boyfriend's Briefs During Argument Over Cigarettes Reported by the Weakly Vice Amber Gray, a 21-year-old Nevada woman, was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly set her boyfriend's underwear on fire after he forgot to buy her cigarettes. According to the Carson City Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to the couple's home at about 5 a.m. Tuesday morning after receiving a report of a domestic dispute inside the residence. Arriving deputies made contact with a man who stated that his girlfriend had set his underwear on fire inside of their home during an argument over cigarettes. Investigators say the girlfriend, Amber Gray, became upset when her boyfriend forgot to purchase cigarettes for her during a recent trip to the store. In retaliation, Gray allegedly destroyed several household items before striking the boyfriend in the face with a water bottle. She then set a pair of her boyfriend's underwear on fire and let it burn in the hallway of their home. The boyfriend responded by moving the burning briefs to a bath tub while Gray fled the apartment. Two other residents who live inside the home confirmed the boyfriend's account of the altercation - although deputies were unable to find injury on the man from the alleged water bottle attack. Gray was later found at a local casino where she was taken into custody. She was booked into jail and charged with felony arson and domestic battery. Her bail has been set at $43,000 Tech Support Pits From: Ron Re: Transfer files from XP to W8 Dear Webby, I have gotten help from you before and it is always good. Now I just bought a new computer W/ W8 and need to transfer many old pics. and music and some data. Can I just use a Thumb drive, like you mentioned the other day, with all the stuff that I want to transfer and then plug that into the rather klutzy W8 machine?. I have not yet put the new computer to much use and am waiting to see if this will work. Thanks for the timely info I always got. Next is trying to find utilities to make that user-hostile W8 usable. Thanks again. Ron Dear Ron Yes, it will definitely work. Everything from XP on reads thumb drives and card readers just fine. Make a plan first about where you want to put the pictures. You probably have a huge hard drive now, that would be a lot more manageable, if you partition it. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Clean Mini-Blinds Outdoors I put my mini-blinds on the outdoor table and hose and wash with the car wash brush, then flip and do the other side. I hang them on the clothes line to dry. Kids can do this chore. By Sharon C. from Chesapeake, VA I hang them on the clothes line, spray them lightly with Simple Green, and then do them as recommended by Sharon. They drip-dry without any spots. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
At 3 am a desk clerk at a hotel gets a call from a drunk guy asking what time the bar opens. "It opens at noon," answers the clerk. About an hour later he gets a call from the same guy, sounding even drunker. "What time does the bar open?" He asks. "Same time as before... Noon," Replies the clerk. Another hour passes and he calls again, plastered. "Whatjoo shay the bar opins at?" The clerk then answers, "It opens at noon, but if you can't wait, I can have room service send something up to you." "No... I don't wanna git in... Ah wanna git OUT!!!"

Thanks to a reader who does not want his name mentioned, for sending this joke: A guy sitting at a bar at Heathrow Terminal 3 noticed a really beautiful woman sitting next to him. He thought to himself: "Wow, she's so gorgeous she must be a flight attendant. But which airline does she work for?" Hoping to pick her up, he leaned towards her and said the Delta Airline slogan: "Love to fly and it shows?" She gave him a confused look and he immediately thought to himself: "Damn, she doesn't work for Delta Airlines." A moment later, another slogan popped into his head. He leaned towards her again, "Something special in the air?" She gave him the same confused look. He then removed Singapore Airlines off the list. Next he tried the Thai Airways slogan: "Smooth as Silk." This time the woman turned to him "What the HELL do you want?" The man smiled, then leaned back in his chair, and said "Ahhhhh, British Airways!"

"So vat did you get her?" Ole asks. Sven replied, smiling, "I bought her a deck of cards." -------- He will be sleeping out in the barn until further notice.
