Camera tripod bolt 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, December 26.
Remember your elbow pads if you go watch the insanity at
the stores. Don't bother with Walmart. I heard that they
don't reduce prices for Boxing Day, the prices are set to
the maximum, that they can get away with, and they have no
intention to go below that.

However, many other stores are bound to have good fights
going on.

Little Tony was staying with his grandmother for a few days. He'd been playing outside with the other kids for a while when he came into the house and asked her, "Grandma, what is that called when two people are sleeping in the same room and one is on top of the other?" She was a little taken aback, but decided to tell him the truth. "It's called sexual intercourse, darling." Little Tony just said, "Oh, OK" and went back outside to talk and play with the other kids. A few minutes later he came back in and said angrily, "Grandma, it is not called sexual intercourse! It's called Bunk Beds!" "And Jimmy's Mom wants to talk to you!!"
Officer Candidate School at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, was tough. During an inspection, a fellow soldier received 30 demerits for a single penny found in his area. Ten demerits were for "valuables insecure," ten demerits because the penny wasn't shined, and ten more because Abraham Lincoln needed a shave.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Paul Anthony Lajeunesse, 20, Floriduh 20 year old got jailed for Breaking Baby's Leg For Interrupting Video Game A 20-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly breaking a four-week-old baby boy's leg while changing a diaper. Paul Anthony Lajeunesse was charged with aggravated child abuse on Monday stemming from the incident on Dec. 11. Police claim he admits to wounding the child for crying as he tried to play games on an Xbox. Lajeunesse's grandmother was babysitting at the time so the child's mother could attend school, reported. However, the grandmother said it was Lajeunesse's responsibility to change diapers. Lajeunesse was arrested and ordered not to have contact with the victim. It is not clear what his relationship with the child is, but he lives at the same address as the child and its mother, WTSP-TV reported. The grandmother also said that the baby boy tended to cry whenever Lajeunesse changed the diapers, possibly because he was holding the kid's legs up too high. He allegedly admitted to investigators that he took the infant into another room to change its diaper and heard a "pop" when he lifted a leg. After that, the leg went limp. X-rays taken at an area hospital confirmed a fracture on the leg. The boy had to go through surgery and was released Dec. 13 with a waist cast, according to Tech Support Pits From: Renee Re: Camera tripod bolt Dear Webby, You mentioned it once before a few years ago, but I forgot. What type of special bolt is used on a tripod to hold the camera? I don't have a tripod, but I want to use a stepladder for taking the Christmas pictures. I have an older Canon G2 with a remote control key-fob, if that makes a difference. Renee Dear Renee It makes no difference. All cameras use the common 1/4" coarse ( 1/4" x 20) bolt, no matter where the camera was made. The trick is to use a long bolt and a wing nut. Use the wing nut below a step, a washer or two above the step, then the camera Turn the bolt just barely finger tight into the camera, point the camera, and then tighten the wing nut. Gently. Better than bolting the camera to your ladder, bolt it to a big alligator clamp, like they are used for welding cables or automotive jumper cables. That gives you more ways to adjust and aim the camera. Considering how cheap tripods have become recenty, check out table-top tripods. You can easily put one of them onto a step ladder or shelf. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Fixing Pre-Lit Christmas Tree Here is your solution. Find the non-removable bulb with the white socket. It is the last one on the strand, I believe the "non-replacable" white bulb exists only so that you have to buy a new tree ever four years. :( You will find that it's blackened or burned and causing your problem. Wiggle out the bulb, then dig out the socket with a pair of pliers. Be careful not to destroy the socket. Take your time, wiggle it loose. Stick any replacement bulb into that socket and, BAM, your tree will be perfect again! By DrFriedrichs Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
Recently my friend, Karen, got a job at a local hardware store. "The owner doesn't want us hanging out with our friends," she said. "If you stop by, tell them you're my brother." On my first visit I walked to the customer service desk and asked the older woman there, "Is Karen around?" When she looked at me quizzically, I added, "I'm her brother." She smiled. "What a nice surprise. I'm quite pleased to meet you! I'm Karen's mother."

A gentleman goes to an estate sale and notices that one of the items for sale is a large parrot. He's always wanted a talking bird, so when it comes up for bid he offers $50. The bidding proceeds hot and heavy with someone always bidding ten dollars more than he until the parrot is finally sold to him for $1,500. When he goes to get the bird, he asks the auctioneer, "Can the bird talk?" The auctioneer replied, "Who do you think was bidding against you...?"


Merry Christmas
