Thanks so much for solving an annoying little problem!!!

You are most welcome, Dorothy!

I got a stainless steel thermos travel cup with a picture
of a wolf on it from Dorothy about 15 years ago and my dad 
used it every year on our cactus safaris. He is getting too
old to put up with the airport hassles, but the cup is still
in great shape. If you need a pretty, but useful and lasting
gift, go check out Dorothy's sites.

Have FUN!

A golfer is playing a round of golf with his buddies. On the sixth hole he proceeds to splash five balls in a row into the water. Frustrated over his poor golfing ability, and about ready to hit somebody, he heaves his golf clubs into the water, and begins to walk off the course. Then all of a sudden he turns around and jumps back in the lake, his buddies apparently thinking he is going to retrieve his clubs. When he comes out of the water he doesn't have his clubs and begins to walk off the course. One of his buddies asks, "Why did you jump into the lake?" He responds, "I left my car keys in the bag."

Dave went on a business trip for a few days. When he returned, his wife reported that the dog really missed him. "She spent every night at the front door, waiting for you to come home," she said. "What an example of devotion," Dave replied. "I wonder if you'd be that concerned about me?" "Honey," she answered, caressing her marble rolling pin, "if you were gone overnight, and I didn't know where you were, you can be sure I'd be waiting for you at the front door."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Anna Areola-Hernandez, 23, Phoenix, AZ Drunk Motorist Was Wearing Pants As Shirt When Found Passed Out At Wheel An intoxicated Indiana man found passed out in the driver’s seat of his car was in his underwear, had on one sock, and was wearing his pants like a shirt, cops report. Bryan Hill, 24, was behind the wheel of a 2013 Honda yesterday when police found the vehicle blocking traffic, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department report. As detailed by a cop, Hill, seen in the adjacent mug shot, was “wearing only a t-shirt, underwear and one sock.” The officer added that Hill “did have pants on, but they were on his arms. Both arms were inserted into the legs of his jeans.” Hill was arrested around 4 AM Sunday for public intoxication and obstructing traffic. Hill is locked up without bond in the Marion County jail due to a hold from another county. He is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow morning. Tech Support Pits From: Chris Re: Computer power cords Dear Webby, Are powercords interchangeable? My friend gave his computer to check out, but forgot to give me his power cord. Could I use my power cord instead? I have a cord for a 350V power supply and the power supply for his computer is 250V. Would be okay to switch out power cords? Thanks, Chris Dear Chris yes, sure! Power cords are standard. If you can stuff it into the socket, it will work. Since your household voltage is 110 Volt, it's nice that the cord doesn't start leaking and drooling electrons onto the carpet until 250V or 350V, but any rating from 110V and up is fine. Power cords that have a female plug that looks like this one, and have a male plug that fits the wall socket, can be safely used anywhere in the world. The power supply often has a little red slide switch, sometimes covered with tape, that lets you select the voltage of your country. But if the cord fits, use it. HOWEVER! Keep in mind, that I am only talking about power cords, not Laptop of Notebook powersupplies or chargers. Except in Europe, those are not interchangeable, and using the wrong one can cause very expensive damage, especially on Toshibas. Always make 100% sure that chargers are not mixed up and not left behind in any hotel. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Determining if Spices are Still Good If you find yourself debating on whether to use a spice that doesn't have an expiration date, try these methods to see if they are still good: Look to see if the color is still vibrant. If the spice appears faded, there is a good chance the flavor has faded too. Put a little of the spice in your hand and crush or rub it. If the aroma is no longer strong and the flavor is weak, it is time to buy a new one. Here are a few tips to help keep your spices fresh and usable: Always store herbs and spices in a tightly sealed container. Keep them away from heat, moisture, and direct sunlight. Remember to reseal the container immediately after use. Use a dry measuring spoon and don't sprinkle spices over a steaming pot. This will help prevent caking, which is caused by moisture.

An elderly gentlemen went in for his annual physical exam. The doctor said, "You're in incredible shape. How old are you again?" The man replied, "I am 78." The doctor exclaimed, "Wow, 78. How do you stay so healthy? You look like a 60 year old." The man explained, "Well, my wife and I made a pact when we got married that whenever she got mad she would go into the kitchen and cool off and I would go outside to settle down." "What does that have to do with it?" asked the doctor. The man sighed, "I've pretty much lived an outdoor life."
