Two cowboys come upon an Indian lying on his stomach with his ear to the ground. One of the cowboys stops and says to the other, "You see that Indian?" "Yeah," says the other cowboy. "Look," says the first one, "he's listening to the ground. He can hear things for miles in any direction." Just then the Indian raises his head and says: "White Ford Pick-Up, 4 people in front, a dozen in the back, big party" "Wow, you can tell all that by listening to the ground ?" "Nah, I fell off the truck"

A young man said to his girlfriend's father, "I realize that this is only a formality, but would you mind me marrying your daughter?" "Who says it's ONLY A FORMALITY?" roared the father angrily. "Her obstetrician and her lawyer!" replied the young man.

And note the clean, but warm air from the chimneys. They take air from ground level and blow it through huge radiators to cool the used steam from the powerplant. What they blow out at the top is simply warm air. No CO2 or pollutants of any kind added.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Rachel Meyers, 26, New York City, NY Woman trashed salon over bad hairdo Incensed over an allegedly botched hairdo, a New York City woman tore up a Manhattan salon, throwing chairs, hair dryers, and assorted beauty products in a rampage that ended with her in handcuffs, according to investigators. Rachel Meyers, 26, was arrested Friday afternoon following the ruckus at the Century 27 Beauty Salon on Beaver Street in the financial district. Meyers, a Manhattan resident, was charged with five misdemeanors, including assault, harassment, and criminal possession of a weapon. During her meltdown, Meyers threw a curling iron stand at another patron, according to a criminal complaint sworn by Officer Robert Rastetter. The stand struck the 52-year-old victim, “causing a laceration, bruising, and substantial pain in her knee,” Rastetter noted. Meyers, pictured above, reportedly quarreled with stylists over treatment that left her hair in knots. Meyers is next due in Manhattan Criminal Court on September 10. Tech Support Pits From: Amanda Re: Has Firefox gone bad? Dear Webby, Is it just my machine, or is the current FireFox a slow dud, that keeps bunging up? I have to keep dumping it with the task manager and restarting it all the time. Is there another browser, that you would recommend? Thanks Amanda Dear Amanda Yes, the current version is indeed a dud. So was the previous one. You would have to go back about five versions to get a fast one. Currently FireFox can not be recommended any more. Maybe they will recover some day. Nobody knows. You can try Google Chrome. It is very fast and does not bung up. However, Chrome takes a bit of getting used to. Chrome does not have a big, bulky top. You can set HotKeys to open things like RoboForm. I set CTRL R for RoboForm. Like I said, it takes some getting used to, but unlike Windows 7 and 8, their stuff makes sense. Not having a whole window-wide bar for Roboform shaves half an inch or more off the top bars when not needed, and goes away after use. The color rendering seems to be more crisp and the fonts are nice and sharp, just as good as Safari. Safari is the Mac browser. It works on Windows machines, but is rather primitive compared to FireFox, Internet Explorer, Opera and Chrome. Safari is still the browser of choice for reading eBooks or long User Agreements, but few Windows users use Safari for anything else. Internet Explorer has security issues and does not mesh with a lot of programs, and is rather slow. Opera is not free any more and crashes ocasionally. So, in summary, currently Chrome is the best browser. Take a bit of time getting used to it. It's not rocket science and almost all of it you'll figure out without clicking on help. For example, you can "Show the Bookmarks Bar", and drag the little icon from the left of the address bar onto it. It is called "favicon". You can cut the sample bookmark, that they got in it. The Bookmarks Bar has a folder to get started. Rename that to F1 or F and drag favicons onto it. Make more topical folders for different topics and keep the bar from getting too crowded. It is actually quite neat once you get used to it. And it is fast! Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Natural Ideas for Ant Control My neighbor had a huge pile of cement ants. She used a mix of 50/50 baking soda and powered sugar. They were gone the next day. I thought the sugar would attract them but it worked. I have used soapy water as well. Ants don't like peppermint either, use oil not candy. By roberta paige [1] Cinnamon works quite well too, and corn starch, also cement, lime (construction, not the fruit), and probably a lot of other fine ground materials. Have FUN!

A FARM WAS SOLD to some city folks. The old farmer next door was out one day and saw the new neighbor planting in his garden. The farmer watched as the man would dig a hole, set a tomato plant and pour in a shot of whiskey. The farmer couldn’t help but ask what he was planting. “Stewed tomatoes,” was the reply.
Shakey went to a psychiatrist. "Doc," he said, "I've got trouble. Every time I get into bed, I think there's somebody under it. I get under the bed, I think there's somebody on top of it. Top, under, top, under ... you gotta help me, I'm going crazy!" "Just put yourself in my hands for two years," said the shrink. "Come to me three times a week, and I'll cure your fears." "How much do you charge?" "A hundred dollars per visit." "I'll sleep on it," said Shakey. Six months later the doctor met Shakey on the street. "Why didn't you ever come to see me again?" asked the psychiatrist. "For a hundred buck's a visit? A bartender cured me for ten dollars." "Is that so! How?" "He told me to cut the legs off the bed! Nobody under there now."
