There art two cardinal sins from which all others spring: Impatience and Laziness. --- Franz Kafka (1883 - 1924)
A dad picks his boy up at school to take him to a dental appointment. "Well, son," the father asks, "what happened at school today?" "Dad, I got a part in the school play. I play a man who's been married for 20 years." "That's great, son," the proud father says. "Keep up the good work and before you know it, they'll be giving you a speaking part."
A large company, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. The new boss was determined to rid the company of All slackers. On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a Guy leaning on the frame of the loading dock door and smoking a cigareette. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant Business. He walked up to the guy leaning against the wall and Asked, "How much money do you make a week?" A little surprised, the young man looked at him and Replied, "I make $400 a week. Why?" The CEO then handed the guy $1,600 in cash and Screamed, "Here's four weeks' pay, now GET OUT and Don't come back." Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked, "Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?" From across the room came a voice, "Pizza delivery Guy from Domino's waiting for George to get a tip for him."

The Ulster County Sheriff's Office reported the suspect was the most wanted person on its 10 Most Wanted List. The former Woodstock, N.Y., resident will be extradited back to the Ulster County to face the bank-robbing charges he was indicted for. Tech Support Pits From: Renata Re: Stop program instantly Dear Webby I need a way to stop a program like FireFox or Internet Exploder instantly when I somehow get into dangerous territory, or when it bungs up and I can't stop it normally or with Taskman. I'm sure you got some trick up your sleeve for doing that. Thanks Renata Dear Renata There IS a trick, but you have to use good old-fashioned DOS for it. Use a plain text editor like NoteMaid, NoteTab, WordPad, etc., and write a little text file with just taskkill /f /t /IM iexplore.exe and another one with taskkill /f /t /IM firefox.exe Save them with names like kill-IE.bat and kill-FF.bat If you use Notepad, make sure it does not backstab you by adding .txt after the .bat extension! After you have saved them to an easy to find place like c:\ find them with the file explorer. Right-click them and make a shortcut. Drag the shortcut into an empty corner on the desktop. Now, whenever you click on one of those shortcuts, the program mentioned in it will be axed instantly. The shortcut just calls the DOS bat, and you see how powerful and fast DOS still is, even on a bogged down W7 machine. You can, of course make bats like that for any other program too. Use the Taskmanager to look for what name it actually has under the hood. Quite frequently that name is different from the public name on the screen. On an XP machine you use tskill instead of taskkill. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Measuring Wet and Dry Ingredients Have two different 2 cup sized measuring cups for making recipes. Use one cup exclusively for dry ingredients and one for wet. Always add the thinner or less sticky wet ingredient in the measuring cup first and the thicker or stickier one second. That way the thicker doesnt stick all over the cup, wasting your ingredient and it also comes out for easier clean up! I will often measure both wet ingredients in the same cup at the same time together (that's why the 2 cup size measuring cup) and premix them before adding them into the bowl of dry or other ingredients. These little hints save time and cleaning up after too! By Dee [143] http://www.

From Rob My girlfriend called me as she was driving to an appointment. She arrived, and I could tell from her voice that she was getting frustrated. Finally she said, "I know I had my cell phone with me. And now I can't find it!" I replied, "Aren't you talking on it!?" There was a solid period of stunned silence as the reality of the situation sank in - followed by, "You are NOT going to tell anybody about this!"
One of my co-workers got a speeding ticket and was attending a defensive-driving course to have points erased from her license. The instructor, a poice officer, emphasized that being on time was crucial and that the classroom doors would be locked when each session began. Just after one class started, someone knocked on the locked door. The officer opened it and asked, "Why are you late?" The student replied, "I didn't realize how much longer it takes to get here within the speed limit."
