Phyllis sent me this ICQ card: http://dpkgi.free.fr/files/deerz2.swf In the early days of the Internet, before everybody left ICQ and moved to Skype as suddenly as they had moved to ICQ from PowWow and MSN, we used to have a pretty good time there. Now that all the reasons, why everybody stampeded to Skype, have evaporated, and Microsoft is trashing Skype, it is time to consider going back to ICQ. I went back to http://ICQ.com tonight, and after a dozen years away, my user name and profile was still working. I was impressed! It will take a while to get familiar with it again, and even longer to see who else is using it. I found out why Skype has fixed fonts in the contact list and Toos / Options, and microsoft is unable to fix that problem. Apparently the original owners of Skype copied those parts from ICQ, and forgot to tell Microsoft about that. Have FUN! DearWebby

History will be kind to me for I intend to write it. --- Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965) Today's public figures can no longer write their own speeches or books, and there is some evidence that they can't read them either. --- Gore Vidal (1925 - ) "British scientists are now seeking permission to fuse human cells with rabbit eggs. Their goal is to create a human with a lucky foot." --- Jay Leno Your children weren't made to like you. That's what grandchildren are for. --- Plato We know cellphones don't interfere with navigation equipment on airlines, but they sure do tick off the person sitting next to you. --- Socratex
Pete had this problem of getting up late in the morning and was always late for work. His boss was mad at him and threatened to fire him if he didn't do something about it. So Pete went to his doctor, who gave him a pill and told him to take it before he went to bed. Pete slept well and in fact beat the alarm in the morning. He had a leisurely breakfast and drove cheerfully to work. "Boss", he said, "The pill actually worked!" "That's all fine" said the boss, "But where were you yesterday?"

A man walked into a dress shop and told the clerk he wanted to buy an evening gown for his wife for Christmas. "What size?" asked the clerk. The man shrugged blankly. Trying to help, the clerk inquired, "Well then, what are your wife's measurements?" The man thought for a moment. "Small, medium, and large, in that order."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Oliver Bozeman, 25, Courtney Edge, 25 Floriduh Jailed for robbing an armless man Police in Florida arrested two suspects accused of stealing $300 from Havalah Pitts, an armless man. The alleged robbery occurred in Pompano Beach in October, but the investigation culminated with the arrests of Courtney Edge and Oliver Bozeman, both 25, on Tuesday, the New York Daily News reported. A spokesman for the Broward sheriff's office called it "a vile act, a new low for criminals," the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported. Edge and Boozeman were charged with robbery and abusing a disabled or elderly adult, according to the Broward County Sheriff's office. The defenseless victim was born without arms, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Each man is charged with robbery and abuse to an elderly or disabled adult without great physical harm. Judge Hurley ordered Edge held in lieu of $55,000 bond. Bozeman was held without bond because he was already out on bond in a different case. Hurley said Bozeman has an extensive criminal record including past strong arm robberies. Tech Support Pits From: Wendy Re: Upgrade to Firefox Hi, Webby. First, thanks for all the questions you answer daily in your Humor letter, it's been a fantastic help to me and I'm sure others as well. I now have a question. I'm on Sympatico, have IE 8 and a lot of websites tell me it's outdated and old and are pointing me to Firefox or Chrome. I looked at Firefox and I like it to best. My question is this, how do I change from IE8 to Firefox? And how will it affect my computer? I'm a semi-novice at this, not an idiot, but not and expert! haha Hope you can help me, Thanks for all you do, Wendy Dear Wendy Sympatico has email problems, but browsing web sites is usually quite OK. Upgrading from IE8, or any year IE, is easy. Just download FireFox and install it. It will ask you, if you want to bring over your favorites and cookies and stuff. Just agree to that, and it will all be done in a minute or so. Then it asks you, if you want it to be your main browser. Hit OK on that. After that you can run it as is, or browse for free Add-Ons. TOOLS OPTIONS ADDONS For example, I use ColorfulTabs, FlagFox, YouTube-to-MP3, and SaveMyTabs. There may be all kinds of others, that may eventually strike your fancy. There is no rush. If you feel a need for some Add-On, browse for it. Most likely, there is one just waiting. FireFox works quite well without any of those Add-Ons. For example, the FlagFox simply shows a tiny flag of the country, where that web site is based. Cute, but like all those Add-ons, usually not really necessary. Have FUN! DearWebby

A little boy was attending his first wedding. After the service, his cousin asked him, "How many women can a man marry?" "Sixteen," the boy responded. His cousin was amazed that he had an answer so quickly. "How do you know that?" "Easy," the little boy said. "All you have to do is add it up, like the preacher said: 4 better, 4 worse, 4 richer, 4 poorer."

>From Bill I remember a Christmas years ago when my son was a kid. I bought him a tank. It was about a hundred dollars, a lot of money in those days. It was the kind of tank you could actually get inside and ride. Instead, after hours of assembly on my part, he ended up played in the box it came in. It taught me a valuable lesson. Next year he got a box, and I got a hundred dollars' worth of scotch.
A guy and a girl are having a drink together in a bar. The man raises his glass and says, "Here's hoping you're in Heaven ten minutes before the devil knows you're dead!" "What's that mean?" asks the girl. "That," answers her date, "is an authentic Irish toast." "Oh. Well, here's to bread, eggs and cinnamon." "Bread, eggs and cinnamon? What's that?" The girl says, "That's French toast."
