Did north Korea really take over Gmail? 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Tuesday, June 10.

In seven days from now I will get the first cataract
operation. I am not worried about the operation. That
apparently is a well practised routine, and the doctor
in charge is a teaching doctor supervising, with a student
doing the actual work. 
My only concern is whether I can write and send out the
newsletters that night. We'll see.

>From Roland In the world of hi-tech gadgetry, I've noticed that more and more people who send text messages and emails have long forgotten the art of capital letters. For those of you who fall into this category, please take note of the following statement: "Capitalization is the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse and helping your uncle jack off a horse."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Lidia Zuradzka, 52, WHEELING, Illinois Woman jailed for breaking into home and taking beer An Illinois woman's desire for an alcoholic beverage got her tossed into the slammer. Lidia Zuradzka has been accused of breaking into a stranger's home in Wheeling and demanding a beer on Monday. According to Cook County Assistant State's Attorney David Shin, Zuradzka entered the house through an unlocked door while the female homeowner was upstairs. The homeowner walked into her living room and allegedly saw Zuradzka holding a beer that had been left out on a table. When asked what she was doing, Zuradzka responded "I want beer," the Daily Herald reported. The homeowner screamed and Zuradzka left the residence. The 52-year-old has been charged with residential burglary charges and was held on a $100,000 bond on Wednesday. Zuradzka has previous convictions for residential burglary and criminal trespass to a residence Tech Support Pits From: Rolando Re: North Korea? Dear Webby I'm a long time user of Gmail. Never had problems until now that sometimes the links for graphics or to Ophelia or for pictures don't work. Today all was fine except for a warning that the message could be a phising type. Of course I discarded the note and enjoyed the newsletter. However I understand that Google owns the service, and then why North Korean "censors" are mentioned in your newsletter as being the ones interfering with the service? Thank you Rolando Dear Rolando People use Gmail for receiving and sending email, not for having their email censored by some incompetent do-gooders acticng like North Korean email censors. Whether the Gmail censors are real North Koreans, or just act like they were, is not known for sure. I had to cut the link to MyFrugalLife,com, because they thought it was naughty and cut emails to some people because of it. I would love to frugal their turnip and inject some brains! On other reader's newsletters they cut out the vote button, claimed it was phishing. Before the North Korean Censors took over, Gmail was an excellent email system. Now it is time to look for a replacement. Have FUN! DearWebby

Sue noticed her husband standing on the bathroom scale, sucking in his stomach. Thinking he was trying to weigh less with this maneuver, she commented, "I don't think that is going to help." "Sure it does," he said. "It's the only way I can see the numbers"
A new miracle doctor was in town. He could cure anything and anybody, and everyone was amazed with what he can do. Everyone except for Mr. Smith, the town grouch. So Mr. Smith went to this 'miracle doctor' to prove that he wasn't anybody special. "Hey, doc, I have lost my sense of taste. I can't taste nothin', so what are ya goin' to do?" The doctor scratches his head and mumbles to himself a little, then tells Mr. Smith, "What you need is jar number 43." Jar number 43? Mr. Smith wonders. So the doctor brings the jar and tells Mr. Smith to taste it. He tastes it and immediately spits it out, "This is gross!" he yells. "I just restored your sense of taste Mr. Smith," says the doctor. That will be $100. So Mr. Smith goes home very mad. One month later, Mr. Smith goes back to the doctor along with a new problem, "Doc," he starts, "I can't remember!" The doctor scratches his head and mumbles to himself a little and tells Mr. Smith: "What you need is jar number 43..." Before the doctor finished his sentence, Mr. Smith fled the office.
