At a country-club party a young man was introduced to an attractive girl. Immediately she began flirting at him and and flattering him outrageously. He liked the young lady, but he was taken a bit aback by her fast and ardent pitch. Hhe was really amazed when after 30 minutes she seriously proposed marriage. "Look," he said. "We only met a half hour ago. How can you be so sure? We know nothing about each other." "You're wrong," the young lady declared. "For the past 5 years I've been working in the back office at the bank where you have your account. I know all I ned to know about you."
Ever consider what pets must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul - chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!

Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Fake FireFox At 01:05 PM 10/13/2014, you wrote: Dear Webby, Firefox worked great until I installed the latest version 32.0. Now, all I get is a blank screen with no icons or printing. I also downloaded a virus with this version. It took Avast hours to get rid of it. I am using Windows 7. I also upgraded Firefox on my notebook which uses Windows XP. It works fine. I tried system restore and that did nothing. I really need your help. Thanks. Bill Dear Bill If you got a virus alongside with a fake update, then you got a fake update from something, that was sneakier than AVAST. By the way, the current version is 34, not 32. I am using 33 and will update to 34 soon. Your 32 is just a trojan. The real 32 is at Firefox 32.0.3 (That is the complete installer) Obviously, AVAST did not stop that infection from coming in, and most likely, it is still there, just fooling Avast. Try Malwarebytes from http://webby.com/malwarebytes to clean up. Use the free trial. Do I sound like a broken record? After that, get a legitimate Firefox from Firefox directly, not from a virus distributor. All versions of FireFox from 0.8 to 34 are at https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ Just use Chrome to download one. You might also want to consider getting something a bit stronger than AVAST, for example McAfee. Do I sound like a broken record? Good Luck! DearWebby

A Chicago salesman on a business trip to Boston had a few hours to kill before catching a plane home. Remembering an old friend's advice to try some broiled scrod, a favorite fish in Boston, he hopped into a cab and asked the driver, "Say, do you know where I could get scrod around here?" The driver replied, "Pal, I've heard that question a thousand times, but this is the first time, ever, in the passive pluperfect subjunctive."
An office technician got a call from a computer user. The user told the tech that her computer was not working. She described the problem and the tech concluded that her com- puter needed to be brought in and serviced. He told her, "Unplug the power cord and bring it up here and I'll fix it for you." About ten minutes later she showed up at his door, with the electrical cord in her hand.
