The ninety-five year old woman at the nursing home received a visit from one of her fellow church members. "How are you feeling?" the visitor asked. "Oh," said the lady, "I'm just worried sick!" "What are you worried about, dear?" her friend asked. "You look like you're in good health. They are taking care of you, aren't they?" "Yes, they are taking very good care of me." "Are you in any pain?" she asked. "No, I have never had a pain in years." "Well, what are you worried about?" her friend asked again. The lady leaned back in her rocking chair and slowly explained her major worry. "Every close friend I ever had has already died and gone on to heaven. I'm afraid they're all wondering where I went."
Thanks to Bob for this report: I attended Palm Beach Atlantic College in Florida. It's only about a mile from the ocean, so students frequently go to the beach, even between classes. One day I was meeting with our dean, when he stopped me in the middle of our conversation and asked if I was an "A" student. Puzzled, I replied, "Mostly, why do you ask?" "You don't have a tan," he explained. "Around here, the darker the tan, the lower the grade."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to No official mug shots available yet Krista Boseley, 30 and Gilles Lapointe, 61 Wannabe Playboy Model In Ecstasy Trafficking Bust OCTOBER 15--A wannabe Playboy model and a male associate were arrested by federal agents after flying into a California airport from Las Vegas in a private plane loaded with a massive cache of Ecstasy pills and powder, according to court records. Acting on information that the plane may have been involved with the smuggling of drugs or currency, investigators questioned the duo upon landing last Thursday at John Wayne Airport in Orange County. Krista Boseley, 30, and pilot Gilles Lapointe, 61, were both carrying large sums of cash that they claimed to have won the prior evening at the Bellagio casino. The pair, both of whom are Canadian citizens, subsequently had their bags searched after a drug detection dog alerted to the presence of narcotics. As detailed in a U.S. District Court complaint, agents found about 30,000 Ecstasy pills in Lapointe’s luggage, and another 28,000 pills inside the plane. The aircraft (seen below) also contained nearly 90 pounds of powdered Ecstasy and a “GPS Tracker Detector” that, investigators allege, is used by drug smugglers “to determine whether law enforcement has placed a tracking device on their vehicles or planes.” Boseley, pictured above, and Lapointe were arrested after agents found the Ecstasy stash. Boseley denied knowledge of the drugs being trafficked or “anything illegal.” Lapointe, however, appears to have made incriminating statements to agents, though they are not detailed in the felony complaint charging the duo with conspiracy to distribute narcotics. Following Boseley’s arrest, investigators learned that she had been stopped last year by Los Angeles Police officers who found her with more than $40,000 in cash. “Boseley stated at that time that the money belonged to someone else.” She was also found in possession of a receipt showing that Lapointe’s plane had been refueled at the Santa Barbara airport.

I discovered that holding down the shift key when stating Firefox, brings up a small option box. Click on "start the program in safe mode". Firefox then appears as it should. Go to the three bar "toolbox" and check "options". Under "advanced" uncheck the box "use hardware acceleration where available". Click OK and restart Firefox. It now runs as the program that we have all come to know and love.... at least it worked for me. Thanks again for your help. All the best.

Jill: I just don't understand the attraction golf holds for men. Mary: TELL me about it! I went golfing with my ex one time, and he told me I asked too many questions! Jill: Well, I'm sure you were just trying to understand the game. What questions did you ask? Mary: I thought I asked legitimate questions, like, "Why did you hit the ball into that lake?"
Tom was in his early 50’s retired and started a second career. However, he just couldn't seem to get to work on time. Everyday, 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But he was a good worker, real sharp, so the Boss was in a quandary about how to deal with it. Finally, one day he called him into the office for a talk. "Tom, I have to tell you. I like your work ethic. You do a bang-up job, but you're being late so often is quite bothersome." "Yes, I know Boss, and I am working on it." "Well, good, you are a team player. That's what I like to hear. It's odd though, you're coming in late. I know you're retired from the Air Force. What did they say if you came in late there?" They said, "Good morning, General. Here is your coffee!"
