The only sure thing about luck is that it will change. --- Bret Harte (1836 - 1902)
My niece's class assignment was to interview a senior citizen about his or her life, so she asked me, "What was the biggest historical event that happened during your childhood?" "I'd have to say the moonwalk," I replied. She looked disappointed. "That dance was so important to you?" I asked her if she knew where the moon is, or if kids nowadays are totally clueless.
The 104-year-old building that had served as the priory and primary student residence of the small Catholic university where I work was about to be demolished. As the wrecker's ball began to strike, I sensed the anxiety and sadness experienced by one of the older monks whose order had founded the college. "This must be difficult to watch, Father," I said. "The tradition associated with that building, the memories of all the students and monks who lived and worked there. I can't imagine how hard this must be for you." "It's worse than that," the monk replied. "I think I left my PalmPilot in there."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD Gregory Lewis, 26, Massachusets No Bail For Rape Suspect Accused Of Cutting Off GPS Monitoring Bracelet Gregory Lewis, an alleged serial rapist arrested last week in Fort Edward after a nationwide manhunt, was arraigned Monday in Worcester, Mass., Superior Court. Lewis was returned Friday to Worcester from Washington County to face charges in the case that began his nationwide crime spree, a Sept. 15 attack on his stepfather in Southbridge, Mass., during which he allegedly took the man's Jeep and fled the state. Lewis had been charged with the Aug. 6 alleged rape and assault of a 13-year-old girl in Southbridge and had an ankle bracelet put on him as a condition of his bail, authorities said, After assaulting his family Sept. 15 and taking the vehicle, Lewis cut off the anklet and tossed it onto the front lawn of the rape victim's home and began his alleged multi-state crime spree. Lewis, 26, of Southbridge was arraigned Monday on 17 felony counts before Judge James R. Lemire. Lewis pleaded not guilty to two counts of rape of a child aggravated by age difference, two counts of indecent assault and battery on a child, indecent exposure and receiving stolen property in the Aug. 6 incident. In a second indictment opened Monday, dealing with the Sept. 15 incident, Lewis faces charges of aggravated kidnapping, armed robbery and assault and battery on an elderly person as well as larceny, weapons and intimidation charges, according to Tim Connolly, spokesman for the office of Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. Lewis was sent to jail without bail. Another hearing on bail, called a dangerousness hearing in Massachusetts, is scheduled for Nov. 10, Connolly said. Following that hearing, if the judge determines Lewis to be a danger to the community, he will be returned to jail without bail for 90 days, at which time the process would be repeated, Connolly said. Lewis is suspected of committing rapes and other crimes in several states over the six-week period he was on the run. Charges also have been drawn up against Lewis in Denver, Colo., according to Lynn Kimbrough, spokeswoman for the Denver District Attorney. In that city, Lewis was indicted on charges attempted murder, sexual assault, assault and aggravated robbery charges. Lewis allegedly made arrangements to meet a woman in Denver, then attacked and sexually assaulted her and robbed her at gunpoint, Kimbrough said. Lewis was arrested in Fort Edward late Oct. 28 after he crashed a Jeep into the Hudson River while trying to elude police. He pointed a gun at a man who went to his aid and was tracked down by a sheriff's deputy and his dog, Fort Edward police said. During the next six weeks, police said, Lewis drove around the country, robbing and raping female escorts in Colorado, Oregon, North Carolina and other states. Tech Support Pits From: JoAnn Re: IE can't display pages Dear Webby! I found that there are a lot of people having the same problem as me and you are my first place to ask for some help. I went to the to pay my bill as usual and found this message and no matter what I tried, and later my son tried to no avail to fix this problem. Robocop is my mail way of going to my websites to pay my bills by the way. Has worked for Many years. So many that I do not think that my 80 yr. old brain can redo the info I have there. That will be another story pretty soon. Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage Anyway, not all sites were not available. Mainly the major sites like American Express, Discover,Visa etc. My Chase acct. worked fine but my other two banks didn't. I sounded like some kind of security thing but we just were not able to get around things to correct this. I used Mozilla to get my bills paid. I do not know how to go about changing things with the Robocop so that it would use the Mozilla automatically. Have you run into this hit and miss site problem recently? This started with me some last month but not until November have I had this happen as described above with my bank and other accounts. I thank you for your attention to my problem. Take care of your eyes!! The rest of you too come to think of it. Yours, JoAnn Dear JoAnn You are the second subscriber reporting this same problem this morning. Since you can get in there with FireFox, just make FireFox your default browser. Or Chrome. I have dumped Internet Exploder years ago, for that and a few other reasons, and have not missed it even once. Go to one of those banks with FireFox, or Chrome if you prefer. Click on FILE, SAVE, and save the page to an easy to find spot on your hard drive. It's OK to jog all the way up to C:\ Right-click START, Windows File Explorer look for that saved file Right-click it Choose Default Program (at the bottom of the choices) There you see all the browsers, that you have installed. Choose FireFox or Chrome That's all there is to it. From now on the computer will use your chosen browser for that type of file. Keep in mind, banks sometimes use shtm or other file name extensions, not just .htm, and you might have to do the same, once, for all the different types of file names they use. You can also go after that preference through the control panel, but that is a bit more confusing. Have FUN! DearWebby

An elderly parish priest was tending his garden near a convent when a passerby stopped to inquire after the priest's much-loved roses. "Not bad," said the priest. "But they suffer from a disease peculiar to this area known as the black death." "What on earth is that?" asked the passerby, anxious to increase his garden knowledge. "Nuns with scissors."

A farmer named Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with a pet dog he doted on. The dog finally died and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked, "Father, the dog is dead. Could you be saying a mass for the creature?" Father Patrick replied, "No, we cannot have services for an animal in the church, but there's a new denomination down the road, no telling what they believe, but maybe they'll do something for the animal." Muldoon said "I'll go right now. Do you think $50,000 is enough to donate for the service?" Father Patrick asked, "Why didn't you tell me the dog was Catholic?"
