Hi DearWebby,
Though I agree with you that Jerry should push back at the 
original source, if that’s not an option, both Open Office 
and Microsoft Word can automatically convert whole sentences 
and even whole documents from all upper case to mixed case 
with just a few mouse clicks:

Open Office: Convert All Uppercase

Microsoft Word: Change Capitalization

In both cases what Jerry is after is called “Sentence case”.
Aloha,

Thanks to both of you!
Have FUN!
DearWebby

A Kiwi was hoping to immigrate to Australia. Upon arriving in Australia, he was questioned by a customs officer, "What is your business in Australia?" "I wish to immigrate," was the Kiwi's reply. The customs officer then asked, "Do you have a conviction record?" Confused, the Kiwi then replied, "I didn't know you still needed one!"

There was a university in New England where the students operated a "bank" of term papers and other homework assignments. There were papers to suit all needs. Since it would look odd if an undistinguished student suddenly handed in a brilliant essay, there were papers for an A grade, B grade, and C grade. One student, who had spent the weekend on more "extra-curricular pursuits," went to the bank, and as his course was a standard one he took out a paper for a inconspicuous C. He then retyped it and handed the work in. In due course he received it back with the professor's comments. "I wrote this paper myself twenty years ago. I always thought it was worth an A, and now I'm pleased to give it one!"

Thanks to LittleMiss for this classic: Becky and Sally were doing some carpentry work on their house. Becky, who was nailing down house siding, would reach into her nail pouch, pull out a nail and either toss it over her shoulder or nail it in. Sally figuring this was worth looking into, asked, "Why are you throwing those nails away?" Becky explained, "When I pull a nail out of my pouch, about half of them have the head on the wrong end and I throw them away." Sally got completely upset and yelled, "You moron! Those nails aren't defective! They're for the other side of the house!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Daniel Lee Warn, Daniel Lee Warn Robs El Pollo Loco Restaurant And Returns For Lunch A man suspected of burglarizing an El Pollo Loco in Costa Mesa, California, has been arrested after he returned to the restaurant for a meal a few hours after the robbery. Daniel Lee Warn, 28, was arrested Wednesday when he tried to order food at the restaurant, because employees recognized him from the security footage of the robbery. The restaurant was closed at the time of the break-in, but the surveillance video showed a man climbing through the drive-through window and ransacking the cash register in a failed attempt to find money. When Warn showed up to order lunch, he was wearing the same clothes as the person seen in the video: A green T-shirt and a hat emblazoned with a bright pink face, the Daily Pilot reports. The restaurant manager called police who arrested Warn on multiple counts of burglary, KTLA-TV reports. Police believe Warn is also responsible for three other burglaries in the same area between Tuesday and Wednesday. Warn, a transient, was sentenced to two years in prison last month, but was freed as part of a post-release community supervision program, according to UPI.com Tech Support Pits From: Jessica Re: Stuck Hourglass Dear Webby I need someone to tell me what I need to do to correct a computer problem. When I point mouse arrow at a website, then click, sometimes it will click onto the little 'hourglass' from the arrow & won't click back to arrow again. So, here I sit, waiting for it to make up it's mind to continue down the yellow brick road & some times it does but most times it won't! The only way I can continue on is to re-boot. It's becoming a pain in the patoot! It even does it when I start typing in the chatroom & after a couple of minutes, it goes back to normal. I have noticed it does it more frequently whenever there is something else going on behind the scenes - like various updates, etc. Is there some thing or some place I can click to try to correct this? Help! Help! Help! Dear Jessica From what I hear, that is quite common with AOL dial-up accounts. It is simply a matter of lack of connection speed. Sometimes you can gain a bit more speed by using the Task Manager (CTRL SHIFT ESC), Processes, to kill your browser and then restarting it, but for the long run, the only solution is to get a faster connection to the Internet. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Onion Snow from Frozen Onions When I cook, I love onion but not in large pieces or strips. None of the kids I know like them that way either. When the Vidalias (my favorite onion) are in season, I buy several. I peel, clean and wash them with a quick douse under HOT water. Then put them into plastic and freeze them whole. The hot water preserves the crunchiness when freezing. Ditto with lettuce to go in the fridge, it's an old trick my mom taught me. When I cook, I take one of my whole frozen onions out and get out my fine size grater. I hold the onion as long as I can and grate a pile of onion snow. It IS cold, so you may need to take breaks or use a silicone glove. Be sure to use a fine grater. I took the finished product here and made onion cakes. I added 1/4 cup flour, 1 Tbsp. cornmeal, 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 3 Tbsp. coconut milk and an egg. Mix all, let set 10 minutes, then fry like pancakes. I hope you get a chance to try this and find it helpful. The onion snow flavors the meal and no one complains about it. ("YUK! Onions!") The food goes down with relish and no complaints.

An old blacksmith realized he was soon going to quit working so hard. He picked out a strong young man to become his apprentice. The old fellow was crabby and exacting. "Don't ask me a lot of questions," he told the boy. "Just do whatever I tell you to do." One day the old blacksmith took an iron out of the forge and laid it on the anvil. "Get the hammer over there," he said. "When I nod my head, hit it real good and hard." Now the town is looking for a new blacksmith.
The professor of a graduate-school class of gifted students included a HUGE amount of material on the midterm exam. Tension in the room built, people were sighing and gasping aloud as they realized how much material they had covered and were expected to recall. The following week, the professor tossed the graded papers on her desk and announced, "Class, after I left here last week, the Lord spoke to me. He said, 'Thanks, professor. I haven't heard from some of those people in years.
