When I am abroad, I always make it a rule never to criticize or attack the government of my own country.

>From Nanarina An elderly couple is attending Mass. About halfway through, the wife leans over and says to her husband, 'I just let out a silent fart; what do you think I should do?' He replies, 'Put a new battery in your hearing aid.'
The stockbroker's secretary answered his phone one morning. "I'm sorry," she said, "Mr. Bradford's on another line." "This is Mr. Ingram's office," the caller said. "We'd like to know if he's bullish or bearish right now." "He's talking to his wife," the secretary replied. "Right now I'd say he's sheepish."

Tech Support Pits From: Nellie Re: Saving during power failure Dear Webby, Is it true that you should not try to save stuff while the electricity is failing? I have a few seconds on my UPS to bridge short blips, but was told not to frantically try to save anything, in case the blip turns into a longer outage. What's the real story? Nellie Dear Nellie That advice is absolutely correct. If you are trying to save a long document or large spreadsheet and the write power fizzles out while saving, you most likely trash that document. At best, you will be able to re-use the oldest parts of it, but you most likely will miss the newest ones. If your data is important to you, get a UPS that can run your machine for a few minutes and allow you to properly save and shut down. Forget about the fakes built into power bars. They are only good for a second or two, less if you got something in every outlet of that power bar. With a real UPS plug ONLY the computer in, and maybe the monitor. If you can't do a formal save and shut-down by the light of the monitor, then get one of those $2.49 solar lawn lights. They won't take precious battery power from the UPS and give you plenty of light for an orderly shut-down. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Keep Grocery List in Cell Phone I keep my grocery list on the "notepad" of my cell phone, so that when I go to the store, all I have to do is check on my phone to see what I need. No more forgotten grocery list at home. I always have my cell phone with me. By Pam from Pittsburgh, PA My dad told me that to keep his memory sharp, he memorizes his shopping list, without ever writing it down. He is 90+. So I am now doing the same. Initially I forgot the odd item, but I am getting better. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
