A good friend can tell you what is the matter with you in a minute. He may not seem such a good friend after telling. --- Arthur Brisbane A stupid man's report of what a clever man says can never be accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand. --- Bertrand Russell ______________________________________________________ >From Dr Bill similar tale of minister doing funeral for the town reprobate; AFTER the usual liturgcal stuff he said "can;t say much about old Zeke except he did half of what Jesus did. The congregation was a littltle shaken to hear that and after internment a deacon was delegated to ask about it, after all, most foks would be overwhelmemed if they did a tenth of one percent. The minister replied, "it's only logical -- Jesus went about doing good -- old Zeke just went about!" ______________________________________________________ >From Elsienore DearWebby, I need that joke of the little brat hiding. The clean one, not the one where he is blackmailing. E Hi Elsinore Here it is: The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers. He dialed the employees home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?" Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster the boss asked, Is your Daddy home? "Yes", whispered the small voice. "May I talk with him?" the man asked. To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No." Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?" "Yes", came the answer. "May I talk with her?" Again the small voice whispered, "no." Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left home alone, the boss decided he would just leave a message with the person who should be there watching over the child. "Is there any one there besides you?" the boss asked the child. "Yes" whispered the child, "A policeman. Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?" "No, he's busy", whispered the child. "Busy doing what? asked the boss. "Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman," came the whispered answer. Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the ear piece on the phone the boss asked, "What is that noise?" "A hello-copper", answered the whispering voice. What is going on there?" asked the boss, now alarmed. In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper." Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated the boss asked, "Why are they there? Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle: "They're looking for me." ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture Chinese Lantern (Physalis alkekengi) ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Laura Aguero-Dupla, 35, Brooklyn NY Teacher left kids home all night to go drinking and get tattoo A middle school teacher in Brooklyn is being accused of endangering her three children by leaving them home all night while she went out drinking and to get a tattoo. Laura Aguero-Dupla, 35, allegedly went out Wednesday night with her husband, Alfredo Bobe, 41, and left her children, ages 4, 5 and 12 by themselves until early the next morning. While out on the town, Aguero-Dupla got a tattoo at a Lower East Side parlor and then went to a bar for "Whiskey Wednesday" event, the New York Post reports. At some point during their date night, Aguero-Dupla and Bobe got into a fight, and he stormed off back home around 2 a.m. Thursday morning. However, he didn't have his keys, so he punched out a glass panel on the front door. The shattering glass woke up neighbors who called 911, the York Daily News reports. Police arrived to find Aguero pacing outside the building while Bobe was inside the apartment. The couple was arrested after police learned the kids had been left home alone for hours, according to WPIX-TV. Aguero-Dupla was charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, while Bobe was charged with acting in a manner injurious to a child. In addition, Aguero-Dupla has been removed from her classroom at Middle School 88 in Sunset Park. This isn't the first time the couple has been in trouble with the law. Tech Support Pits From: Frank Re: How to uninstall the bad Windows Update? Dear Webby I too run Windows 7 and I feel that the referenced update was 'automatically' installed. How do I confirm? I've checked for 'current updates' and none are listed. I suspect it is installed since I'm having difficulties with Ancestry.com. But when I use Chrome, Ancestry works fine. Is there a way to 'un-install' the troublesome update? Then what and where do I check to ensure I don't have any additional updates automatically installed? Which box should I check mark going forward. Keep it simple for us amateurs. Merry Christmas Frank Dear Frank Chrome seems to be using a hard coded Flash player instead of the Java Run Time Unit, that Microsoft sabotaged, and is therefore immune against this particular Taliban sabotage. If you noticed anything abnormal with Windows Defender Flash Player FireFox Decompressing files Get an 8004ff91 error Problems installing updates to anything, then the Taliban has hit you. However, apparently the people in Redmond, Washington, have been told about it, and have frowned upon the evildoers, and a patch to fix the botched patch has been issued from the Throne. They claim the new update is OK. You can download and install the new KB3024777 update. It will uninstall the previous, faulty update and fix all the problems listed above. If you don't quite trust them and just want to get rid of the bad update, you can also perform a manual uninstall by navigating to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > View Installed Updates, and then right-clicking on KB3004394 and selecting Uninstall. You can get the fix from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=45305 To turn off automatic updates, open Windows Update by clicking the Start button In the search box, type Update, and then, in the list of results, click Windows Update. In the left pane, click Change settings. Turn them all off. If you have other programs. like for example McAfee, tracking updates, you have to turn them off there too. However, those are usually quite civilized and always give you the option to select and deselct individual updates. Before and especially after running the 777 fix, save everything every few minutes. Expect a rude, catastrophic reboot without any chance to say NO or to save even one file. Just BOOM. Blue BIOS screen, and gone. It won't happen immediately, might not be for a couple of hours. It's no big deal, you probably should do your monthly reboot anyway. It WOULD be a big deal, though, if you have a work in progress and not saved! After that catastrophic reboot suddenly the sabotaged updates, for example for Java or Adobe Flash, will start up on their own and proceed as if nothing bad had ever happened. Have FUN! DearWebby

A man and woman are having marriage problems, and decide to end their union after a very short time together. After a most brief attempt to reconcile, the couple goes to court to finalize their break-up. The judge asks the husband, "What has brought you to the point that you are now at, where you are not able to keep this marriage together?" The husband says, "In the six weeks we've been together, we haven't been able to agree on one thing." The wife yelled, "Six and a half weeks, you idiot!"

______________________________________________________ The US has succeeded in building a computer able to solve any strategic or tactical problem. Military leaders are assembled in front of the new machine and instructed to feed a difficult tactical problem into it. They describe a hypothetical situation to the computer and then ask the pivotal question: Attack or Retreat? The computer hums away for an hour and then comes up with the answer: YES. The generals look at each other, somewhat stupefied. Finally one of them submits a second request to the computer: YES WHAT? Instantly the computer responded: YES SIR. ______________________________________________________ An enormously wealthy 65-year-old man falls in love with a young woman in her twenties and is contemplating a proposal. "Do you think she'd marry me if I tell her I'm 45?" he asked a friend. "Your chances are better," said the friend, "if you tell her you're 90 and have a bad heart."
