Only the shallow know themselves. --- Oscar Wilde When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained. --- Mark Twain ______________________________________________________ A little Amish boy and his father were visiting a mall for the first time. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and back together again. The boy asked his father. "What is this, Father?" The father (never having seen an elevator) responded "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is". While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed, an old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched small circles of lights with numbers above the walls light up. They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction. The walls opened up again, and a beautiful 24 year-old woman stepped out. The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly "Son, go get your Mother." ______________________________________________________ Following an especially angry argument, Mr. and Mrs. Smith went to bed not speaking to each other. Needing to arise early the following morning, Mr. Smith left a note on his wife's bedside table that said, "Wake me at six." An exasperated Mr. Smith awoke at ten the following morning and rolled stiffly out of bed to see a note on his bedside table: "It's six, you bum! Get out of bed!" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Janina for this picture: Click through for the big picture Dear Webby, Thank you for always sharing such good advice and humor to bring a smile to so many of us! Our temps are already 65f this morning - I know it's the jolt of warmth before the predicted Nor'easter comes through with winds, rains and snow on Wednesday and Thanksgiving. Just sharing a photo I was able to take of this Hawk visiting my area this morning. I heard a commotion of birds shrills outside, grabbed my camera and found this in the tree. Beautiful creature, don't you agree?! Janina from NJ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Alexander Ruff, Viera, Floriduh Floriduh man accused of almost running down deputy in Kohl's parking lot VIERA, Fla. Authorities in Brevard County are throwing the book at a man suspected of trying to run down an officer Alexander Ruff was wanted for stealing from a Kohl's Department Store in Viera on Monday, but now he's facing much more serious charges. Ruff is charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, grand theft and more. A loss-prevention officer said he spotted Ruff stealing and called a deputy. In the parking lot of the store, the deputy injured his ankle as he dived away from Ruff's fleeing car. A chase ensued and covered about 14 miles to Cox Road in Cocoa. In court, prosecutors referred to Ruff's arrest record, which includes drug possession, credit card fraud, grand theft and dealing in stolen property. "He was originally placed on probation in these two cases in April of this year. Within a month he had violated," said prosecutor Gary Beatty. Ruff is being held without bail. Tech Support Pits From: Leesa Re: Lost desktop icons Hi Dear Webby, Greetings to you this fine morning. Hope all goes well in your world. I am stumped, and hope you can help me with this. Over the years the desktop icons and the Start Menu links to several games have been deleted. The games are still on the computer...see them in there when I did a Search...but I haven't a clue how to get them set up on the desktop and/or Start Menu so they can be played. Can't uninstall them because there is no way I could ever get them back. They were downloaded after purchase from various companies. I do have the registration codes for most of them. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch. Havin' fun now Leesa Dear Leesa Yeah, Windows does loose desktop icons, especially if you change resolutions. 1) Search the games, 2) right-click 3) Make Desktop Shortcut 4) Drag the shortcut to the desktop. 5) Make a desktop folder and call it Games 6) Repeat steps 1,2,3,4 Drag the second icon into the Games folder. Now, the next time Windows looses it's marbles, you can simply CTRL-drag an icon from the Games folder onto the desktop. CTRL-drag will put a copy onto the desktop, without deleting the one in the Games folder. Windows will probably complain, that there is already one of those, even though it is not visible. Tell it to go ahead anyway. It may add [2] to the name of it, but that's OK. It will work just fine. Have FUN! DearWebby

Seems there was a young soldier, who, just before battle, told his sergeant that he didn't have a rifle. "That's no problem, son," said the sergeant. "Here, take this broom. Just point it at the enemy, and go 'Bangety Bang Bang.'" "But what about a bayonet, Sarge?" asked the young (and gullible) recruit. The sergeant pulls a piece of straw from the end of the broom, and attaches it to the handle end. "Here, use this ... just go, 'Stabity Stab Stab.'" The recruit ends up alone on the battlefield, holding just his broom. Suddenly, an enemy soldier charges at him. The recruit points the broom. "Bangety Bang Bang!" The enemy falls dead. More enemies appear. The recruit, amazed at his good luck, goes "Bangety Bang Bang! Stabity Stab Stab!" He mows down the enemy by the dozens. Finally, the battlefield is clear, except for one enemy soldier walking slowly toward him. "Bangety Bang Bang! shouts the recruit. The enemy keeps coming. "Bangety Bang Bang!" repeats the recruit, to no avail. He gets desperate. "Bangety Bang Bang! Stabity Stab Stab!" It's no use. The enemy keeps coming. He stomps the recruit into the ground, mumbling "Tankety Tank Tank."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Litter Box Cover I have a large Rubbermaid-type storage container covering my kitty's litter box in my storage room. She used to kick litter all over the place. Now I have much less to sweep up, plus it looks much more pleasant for company. Turn the container upside-down and cut a doghouse-style opening in either the broad side or the end. Having the opening on the end will make an even more enclosed and private litter box. Use either a box cutter or strong shears, but be careful the plastic can be very tough. Once you've cut the opening, lay the lid on the floor. Place the box on top of it and snap the inverted container back on the lid. It only takes a few dollars and a few minutes to make a piece of furniture that is completely washable and will last practically forever. By Abigail A.

______________________________________________________ The man came home drunk at four in the morning, and his wife was all over him, yelling at him, crying because she thought he was with another woman. "No, honey, I swear, I was at this bar, and it was so fancy that even the urinals were made of gold." She said she didn't believe him so she called the bar. "Hello," she said, "I just want to ask one question. My husband claims to have spent the night at your bar and I have one question: "Are your urinals covered in gold?" To which she heard the bartender said, "Hey, Clarence, I think we found the drunk who peed into your tuba!" ______________________________________________________ "Dad," said Little Johnny, "I'm late for football practice. Would you please do my homework for me?" The father said irately, "Son, it just wouldn't be right." "That's okay," replied Little Johnny, "but you could at least give it a try, couldn't you?"
