>From Cookie Satnav I have a little Satnav, It sits there in my car A Satnav is a driver's friend, it tells you where you are. I have a little Satnav, I've had it most of my life It's better than the normal ones, My Satnav is my wife. It gives me full instructions, Especially how to drive "It's sixty miles an hour", it says, "You're doing sixty five". It tells me when to stop and start, And when to use the brake And tells me that it's never ever, Safe to overtake. It tells me when a light is red, And when it goes to green It seems to know instinctively, Just when to intervene. It lists the vehicles just in front, And all those to the rear And taking this into account, It specifies my gear. I'm sure no other driver, Has so helpful a device For when we leave and lock the car, It still gives its advice. It fills me up with counseling, Each journey's pretty fraught So why don't I exchange it, And get a quieter sort? Ah well, you see, it cleans the house, Makes sure I'm properly fed It washes all my shirts and things, And keeps me warm in bed! Despite all these advantages, And my tendency to scoff, I only wish that now and then, I could turn the bugger off!!

"You are all part of our team now," said the Human Resources rep during the welcoming briefing. "You get all the usual benefits and you can go to the cafeteria for something to eat, but please don't eat any employees." The cannibals promised they would not. Four weeks later their boss remarked, "You're all working very hard and I'm satisfied with your work. We have noticed a marked increase in the whole company's performance. However, one of our secretaries has disappeared. Do any of you know what happened to her?" The cannibals all shook their heads, "No" After the boss had left, the leader of the cannibals said to the others, "Which one of you idiots ate the secretary?" A hand rose hesitantly. "You fool!" the leader continued. "For four weeks we've been eating managers and no one noticed anything. But NOOOooo, you had to go and eat someone who actually does something."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to John Balyo, Christian radio personality John Balyo admitted guilt in child-sex assault probe Authorities in Michigan say Christian radio personality John Balyo paid to have sexual encounters with minors. Homeland Security agents and officers from the Michigan State Police and Battle Creek Police Department arrested Balyo, 35, Friday at a Christian music festival in Gaylord, Michigan. Balyo is facing charges of first-degree (penetration) criminal sexual conduct, and has admitted guilt in ONE case, according to a press release by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. "Baylo paid a defendant, who is the subject of a separate child-exploitation investigation, to arrange sexual encounters with minor victims," investigators said in the press release. The man Balyo allegedly paid to arrange the encounters has been identified by police as Ronald Lee Moser. The 42-year-old was indicted earlier this month in federal court on child exploitation and child pornography charges. "They would meet in hotels in areas around Grand Rapids and Balyo would have sex with the children," a Homeland Security agent told Balyo's $500,000 bail has been revoked after his admission to one count, and more to be expected. Balyo was instantly fired from his radio host job. No comment is available from his wife, whom he married two months ago. Tech Support Pits From: Dana Re: FireFox 30 Forward and backward icons Dear Webby Version 30 of FireFox seems to work reasonably well, but of course the thilly brats had to change the user interface, so that we would notice that they are still on the loose. Now the Forward and Backward icons are gone. Restoring Default and laboriously getting all the prferences and stuff back the way it should be, does not help. However, at some random times those icons do appear! What is the story? Dana Dear Dana What we had wanted was the wastefully huge padding between icons removed. Unfortunately, whoever had put in the extra wide padding seems to have grown up and got a job somewhere. So, since they could not fix the padding, they made the NEXT and PREVIOUS icons "magic". If you open a tab from an email link, then there is no previous page to go to, so they don't show the PREVIOUS icon. The same for the NEXT. If you have not gone to a PREVIOUS page, then there is no NEXT page to return to, so they don't show the NEXT icon. It makes the top bar a bit spastic, but it does work, and now that you know what is going on, you will soon get comfortable with it. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Cleaning a Very Burnt Saucepan Cleaning a Very Burnt Saucepan I took a telephone call and completely forgot my saucepan boiling my Udon noodles. I didn't think anything would shift the burnt-on food. How wrong I was. I soaked the pot for two days with cheap cola (17p for 2 litres in my supermarket) and a dash of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda). I was then able to remove all burnt residue with a ball of foil and it came up as shiny as if it was new! By Monique [97] Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. "Do you need some help?" I asked. She replied, "I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door un-locker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant Home Hardware store) would have a battery to fit this?" "Hmmm, I Dunno. Do you have an alarm too?" I asked. "No, just this remote thingy," she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, "Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries? Or do you want to ride down there with me?"
The skydiving instructor was going through the question and answer period with his new students when one of them asked the usual question always asked: "If our chute doesn't open; and the reserve doesn't open, how long would we have till we hit the ground?" The jump master looked at him and in perfect deadpan answered: "The whole rest of your life."
