Taming the icon mess 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, February 12.

Thank you, Nancy!

If any of you have hoe mail or yahoo, or it's sbcglobal,
don't complain about not getting emails. I am not referring 
to emails form me,
If you go to http://webby.com/humor/no-sub.html, you will 
see all the hoops I am jumping through to make sure MY mail 
gets through to you. 

Very few others go to all that hassle, however, good local 
ISPs are often quite good, and you can walk oer there with 
a baseball bat, if they aren't. You'll be surprised how 
well they respond to some personal attention.

You can't do that with Verizon or hoe nail or Yahoo.

It just might be time to graduate from the childish notion,
that the horde of stalkers you enticed when you mooned them 
from the overpass in '92, are still after you. Believ me,
they aren't. And with IP-mapping the cops and the NSA and 
the repo-guys can nail your hoe-nail or yahoo mail right
to your door, even if you are in a 50 floor highrise.

Fortunately, none of the people, who know how to read an
IP-mapping, really care where you live. 

Forget that early 90's BS about AOL and Yahoo masking your
identity. That was BS then, and is even phonier now.
It is time to get a  decent address!

Have FUN!

If you are traveling or have a dynamic IP address, or occasionally send from McDonalds or a coffee shop, then you need SMTP2go for reliable and uncensored email SENDING. AND, Most ISPs demand that you use THEIR name after the @, instead of your chosen domain name. With SMTP2go you can use YOUR domain name, even if you travel or are at a Hotspot downtown. Send email from anywhere without ANY hassle with SMTP2go.

A husband and wife were involved in a petty argument, both of them unwilling to admit they might be in error. "I'll admit I'm wrong," the wife told her husband in a con- ciliatory attempt, "if you'll admit I'm right." He agreed and, like a gentleman, insisted she go first. "I'm wrong," she said. With a twinkle in his eye, he responded, "You're right!"
>From Nana I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ker Gonzalez, 34, Marana, AZ Arizona woman jailed after she jumps out a second story window, when mom of her juvenile lover yells at her An Arizona woman jumped from the second-floor bedroom of a 15-year-old boy after his mother caught her cavorting naked with the teen last month, investigators report. Keri Gonzalez, 34, broke her ankle when she crashed to the ground outside the residence in Marana, a town 30 miles northwest of Tucson. According to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, Gonzalez snuck into the home after the boy’s mother fell asleep. The boy said that he and Gonzalez consumed alcohol she had brought to the home, and “had sex twice that evening” before his mother caught them in bed, deputies reported. The boy’s mother told investigators that she awoke around 2 AM on January 21 to “knocking sounds by the stairs and on the wall.” When she sought to enter her son’s room, the door was locked. When her son subsequently opened the door, his mother spotted “a naked female crouching down on the floor between the bed and wall. The mother yelled at the female to get out of her house.” After gathering her clothes, Gonzalez exited via the window. The boy’s mother spotted Gonzalez “limping as she walked down the street away from the home,” deputies noted. After fleeing the home, Gonzalez later returned to report to the boy’s mother that she had broken her ankle. The teen’s mother recognized Gonzalez as a “family acquaintance” whom she had previously caught “flirting” with her son. During a January 25 police interview, Gonzalez, who had a cast on her ankle, provided a deputy with “information which helped to verify what the mother and victim had said occurred.” She was later arrested for sexual misconduct with a minor and providing false information to police, and booked in to the county jail, where the above mug shot was taken. Tech Support Pits From: Carolyn Re: Taming the Icon Mess Dear Webby, I have lots of icons on my desktop that are so handy but it sure distracts from my picture. I have a Dell laptop, Windows XP. I have seen a couple of ways to hide the icons but would like you to tell me a safe way as I trust you more than others. I don't want to take a chance of losing them. Thanks Carolyn Dear Carolyn All the Hide-Icon programs are more nuisance than they are worth, since to get at the icons, when you need them, you still got to unhide the whole disorganized mess. And there is your key: Organize them! Make a few thematic folders on the desktop, for example Music, Pix, Alpha, Numeric, Sites, Pages, etc. Then drag your icons into the folders of their topic. Now, when you want a Music related shortcut, you click on the music folder, and tehre is all your music related stuff. And yes, you CAN make thematic sub-folders in there. Have FUN! DearWebby

Talking to a tourist the manager of a exquisite older hostelry said "The hotel is built on an Indian reservation and part of the agreement is to allow the chief free use of the premises for the rest of his life. He is known as Big Chief Forget-me-Not because of his phenomenal memory. He is 92 and can remember the slightest detail of his life. "The travel writer took this in and as he was waiting for his cab decided to put the chief's memory to the test. "What did you have for breakfast on your 21st birthday?" said the Aussie. "Eggs," was the instant reply, and indeed the Aussie was impressed. He went off on his travel writing itinerary, right across to the east coast and on his return to the Spokane Hilton six months later was surprised to see the Indian chief still sitting in the lobby whittling away on a stick. "How", said the Aussie.(They think that is an undian greeting) "Scrambled," said the chief.

GROAN ALERT My Aunt Myrtie was in the fertilized egg business when I was young. She had several hundred young layers, called pullets, and 8 or 10 roosters whose job it was to fertilize the eggs. My aunt kept records, and any rooster or pullet that didn't perform well went into the pot and was replaced. Now, this took an awful lot of time. So my aunt got a set of tiny bells and attached them to her roosters so she could hear them chasing pullets. Now she could sit on the porch and still fill out an efficiency report by listening to the bells. My aunt's favorite rooster was Old Fart. A very fine specimen he was, but his bell had not rung all morning. Aunt Myrtie went to investigate. Several roosters were chasing pullets, bells a ringing. O. F. had his bell in his beak so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, have his way with her and walk on to the next one. Aunt Myrtie was so proud of O.F., she entered him in the county fair. Old Fart was an overnight sensation. The judges awarded him both the No Bell Prize, and the Pullet Surprise. Obama got a No Bell price too. Apparently he snuck up on a lot of sheeple.
The young couple invited their aged parson for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having. "Goat," the little boy replied. "Goat?" replied the startled man of the cloth, "Are you sure about that?" "Yep," said the youngster. "I heard Pa say to Ma, 'Might as well have the old goat for dinner today.'"
