An old lady had always wanted to travel abroad. Now that she was getting on in years, she thought she would really like to do so before she died. But until now, she'd never even been out of the country. So she began by going in person to the Passport Office and asking how long it would take to have one issued. "You must take the loyalty oath first," responded the passport clerk. "Raise your right hand, please." The old gal raised her right hand. "Do you swear to defend the Constitution of the United States against all its enemies, domestic or foreign?" was the first question. The little old lady's face paled and her voice trembled as she asked in a small voice, "Uhhh . . . all by myself?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Renata Congleton, 27, New Port Richey, Floriduh Insanely drunk woman, who tried to pick up child from school A Florida mom's blood-alcohol level was more than five times the legal limit when she drove to an elementary school to pick up a child, police say. Renata Congleton, 27, registered a .413 BAC after she was arrested, but not before she allegedly attacked officers and smashed up her vehicle, according to WFLA. The mayhem began when she arrived at Trinity Elementary School in New Port Richey Friday afternoon. School officials wouldn't let the child -- who was not identified -- leave with Congleton because she appeared "extremely drunk," Fox Tampa reports. Instead, they called police, but Congleton fled before they arrived. She allegedly careened into two other vehicles on her way home. Officers tracked her down a short time later. She's accused of kicking and scratching arresting officers before they took her to the ground. She was slapped with charges of child neglect, battery on an officer, and resisting arrest. Bond was set at $15,000. Tech Support Pits From: Edith Re: What formats can Open Office write in? Dear Webby You mentioned that Open Office can save in many formats. I have an old MS WORD from before Y2K. Can it read docs written with that? And save them in a modern format? Thanks Edith Dear Edith Yes, sure, no problem. You can easily pick up docs written with WORD 95, and save them in that format or for example in .RTF, as favored by the newest WORD. Or any other version of WORD. You can, of course, also save in Open Office Document format to make it readable on any machine, or even in Uniform Office Format for use in China. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning a Keyboard with Microfiber Cloth I recently noticed how dirty one of our computer keyboards had become. I tried a baby wipe and it didn't work. I wasn't sure how to clean the keys until my mom suggested trying a damp microfiber. It worked like magic and it was quick too! Unplug the keyboard. Then slightly dampen a microfiber cloth and gently rub each key until it is clean. Make sure the keyboard is completely dry before you plug it back in and use it. By lalala... [485] MF cloth is OK for the top surface, but proper cleaning takes a totally different approach. There are different methods for laptops and regular keyboards. Laptops: Turn the laptop off. Turn it upside down and rub your flat hand over all the keys to see if any are loose and ready to fall off. If none are loose, vacuum the keyboard thoroughly. While still upside down, wash it while wearing one of those deep pile fuzzy car washing mitts dipped in warm, soapy dishwater. Use a good dish soap that drips clear on glasses. Let it drip dry while you do the next keyboard. Finally, vacuum them again and they are CLEAN. If the laptops are in a hospital or sick room environment, do exactly the same, but add a shot of Lysol to the dish water. Regular Keyboards Slam it upside down onto a sturdy table covered with tarp. No need to be gentle. Today's keyboards are incredibly tough. Slam it again until all the bread crumbs, french fries, onion rings, donut fragments and fossilized jam have been dropped out. Support the keyboard ends with the keyboard upside down. Shelf brackets are ideal, but anything two hands high will work. Vacuum the upside down keyboard. Get your wet and soapy fuzzy glove, and rub the keyboard. Again, no need to be gentle! Rub it hard so that the fuzz goes in deep between the keys. Let it drip dry, and vacuum it a bit. Most of today's keyboards are spill proof and a bit of dish soap does not bother them. For hospital or sick room environments, add a shot of Lysol to the soapy dishwater. If there were no breadcrumbs, hair, dandruff and dirt involved, you could skip the vacuuming, and just hold the keyboard upside down and rub it with the mitt. I have cleaned keyboards since the mid-80's and I would highly recommend to vacuum the keyboards as a very important part of the cleaning. Just wiping the nose with microfiber is not enough.

On their way to a justice of the peace to get married, a couple had a fatal car accident. The couple found themselves sitting outside Heaven's Gate waiting on St. Peter to do an intake. While waiting, they wondered if they could possibly get married in Heaven. Saint Peter finally showed up and they asked him. Peter said, "I don't know, this is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out." and he left. The couple sat and waited for an answer ... for two months ... and they began to wonder if they really should get married in Heaven, what with the eternal aspect of it all. "What if it doesn't work?" they wondered, "Are we stuck together forever?" Peter returned after yet another month, looking somewhat bedraggled. "Yes," he informed the couple, "you can get married in Heaven." "Great," said the couple, "but what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?" St. Peter, red-faced, slammed his clipboard onto the ground. "What's wrong?" asked the frightened couple. "COME ON!" Peter shouted, "it took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it will take me to find two lawyers and a judge?"
Ann Landers challenged her readers to come up with the world's third-biggest lie -- right after "The check is in the mail" and "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you." Here is a sampling from the thousands she received: - "It's a good thing you came in today. We only have two more in stock." - "Five pounds is nothing on a person of your height." - "You made it yourself? I never would have guessed." - "Of course I'll respect you in the morning." - "You don't look a day over 40." - "Dad, I need to move out of the dorm into an apartment of my own so I can have some peace and quiet when I study." - "It's delicious, but I can't eat another bite." - "The new ownership won't affect you. The company will remain the same." - "The puppy won't be any trouble, Mom. I promise I'll take care of it myself." - "Your hair looks just fine." - "Put away the map. I know exactly how to get there." - "You don't need it in writing. You have my personal guarantee."
