Thanks to Dianne for this one:
A woman in a supermarket is following a grandfather and his
badly-behaved grandson. He has his hands full with the child
screaming for sweets, biscuits, all sorts of things. The
grandad is saying in a controlled voice: "Easy, William,
we won't be long . . . easy boy."
Another outburst and she hears the grandad calmly say :
"It's okay William. Just a couple more minutes and we'll
be out of here. Hang in there, boy."
At the checkout the little horror is throwing items out of
the trolley. Grandad says again in a controlled voice :
"William, William, relax buddy, don't get upset. We'll be
home in five minutes, stay cool William."
Very impressed, she goes outside to where the grandfather
is loading his groceries and the boy into the car. She says :
"It's none of my business, but you were amazing in there.
I don't know how you did it. That whole time you kept your
composure, and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you
just calmly kept saying things would be okay. William is
very lucky to have you as his grandad."
"Thanks," says the grandpa. "But I am William. The little
bastard's name is Kevin."
Bernard, who is noted for his gracious manners, was awakened one
morning at four forty four a.m. by his ringing telephone . . .
"Your dog's barking, and it's keeping me awake," said an angry
voice. Bernard thanked the caller and politely asked his name
and number before hanging up.
The next morning, at precisely four forty four a.m., Bernard
called his neighbor back . . . "Good morning, Mr. Williams.
I just called to tell you that I don't HAVE a dog."
Thanks to Terry for the picture of a sandpiper she
caught at her creek yesterday.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to
Rusty Douglas Johnson, 41, Rockledge, Floriduh
Arrested for giving dope, booze,
cigarettes to minor,
and letting him drive
A Rockledge pair has been arrested after police say they
gave a child marijuana, beer and cigarettes and then let
the child drive a car, according to police documents.
Rockledge Police would not release the name, age or sex
of the child, who they say was under the care of the two
people they arrested.
Rusty Douglas Johnson, 41, and Kim Johnson, 32, were
arrested Thursday and booked on charges of child abuse
and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Police determined the child was given marijuana during
four separate smoke sessions, according to the documents.
While it sounds like a custody dispute with a vindictive ex,
and the "child" being close to, but not quite 18, the law is
very picky about those things.

Re: Sonic Activation Module alert
For some reason that I can't fathom I have that silly
"Sonic Activation Module" alert popping up once again.
Why do I have it? How to get rid of it permanently?
And do I need to have computer technician do it?
On another front, how can I tell if my computer is Wireless
Thanks for all your help. You're a lifesaver and have saved
all of us lots of money.
That is due to either an incomplete installation of a Sonic
program like Roxio or most DVD reader/writer programs, and
many music programs,
or an incomplete UNinstallation of one of those programs.
The easiest way to fix that is to dig up the CDs, that came
with your computer, look for anything related to DVD, sound,
music,etc., and has the word Sonic on it somewhere.
Then run the installation from that CD again, but don't stop
half way through, even if it is rather tedious.
The other method is to get the troubleshooter for Windows XP,
Windows Vista, and Windows 7:
Program Install and Uninstall Troubleshooter
That might save you from having to search for the installation
CD for that software, but is probably a bit tedious too.
The easiest way to tell if your computer is wireless compatible
is to contact the vendor, who sold you that machine.

Home made Checkers Board
You can make your own checkers game by saving plastic milk
bottle caps. You need two different colors, 12 checkers for
each player. If all your bottle caps are the same color,
color the top of half the caps with permanent marker. Then
make a game board using a square piece of card board.
Use a ruler to measure and draw squares with a marker. A
checker board is 8 by 8 squares of alternating colors,
the same as a chess board.

A Congressman was once asked about his attitude toward whiskey.
"If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the
body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I'm against
it. But, if you mean the elixir of Christmas cheer, the shield against
winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public
coffers to comfort little crippled children, then I'm for it.
This is my position, and I will not compromise."

A mother took her three-year-old daughter to church for the
first time. The church lights were lowered, and then the
choir came down the aisle, carrying lighted candles.
All was quiet until the little one started to sing in
a loud voice,
"Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you..."
Scientists were excited this week at having isolated a brief
sound which occurred immediately before the Big Bang.
Apparently, that sound was "Uh oh!"
The "scientists" in the Antarctic, who believed Al Gore and
in fudging figures more than actual instruments, and got stuck
in real ice, that was not acting according to their wacky
theories, got rescued by a Chinese helicopter ferrying them
in small bunches first to the Chinese ice breaker, which is
also stuck, and then from there to the Australian ice breaker,
which is stuck too.
The French ice breaker, that was going to show off it's awesome
power, appears to have gotten North and South mixed up and is
headed in the wrong direction.
The biggest US ice breaker is now headed there, hoping to open
a channel for the Australian and the Chinese ice breakers, before
the local mid-summer wanes and the weather cools off.
If theose ice breakers don't get out before it gets cold, they
might be stuck there for years.
I find that hilarious!
