The average man, who does not know what to do with his life, wants another one which will last forever. --- Anatole France (1844 - 1924) Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't the fine line between sanity and madness gotten finer? --- George Price ______________________________________________________ During an award ceremony the wife of Spain's ambassador to Washington asked former Sen. George Mitchell if he could make his speech a bit longer, since the ambassador had still not arrived from the airport. Mitchell replied: "I spent years in the U.S. Senate, Madam. I can speak on any subject for any length of time -- especially on a subject about which I have no particular knowledge." ______________________________________________________ Howard County Police officers still write their reports by hand, and the data is entered later into their database. One theft report stated that a farmer had lost 2,025 pigs. Thinking that to be an error, the data entry tech called the farmer directly. "Is it true, Mr. Smith that you lost 2,025 pigs?" she asked. "Yeth," lisped the farmer. Being a Howard County girl herself, the tech entered: "Subject lost 2 sows and 25 pigs." ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture Geminid Fireball over Mount Balang Image Credit: Alvin Wu While viewing the Geminids meteor shower a few days ago, a bright fireball was captured over Mt. Balang, China with particularly picturesque surroundings. In the foreground, a sea of light clouds slowly floated between dark mountain peaks. In the background, the constellation of Orion shone brightly, with the familiar three stars of Orion's belt visible near the image top right. Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, is visible near the image center. The bright fireball flashed for only a fraction of second on the lower right. The source of the fireball was a pebble that intersected the protective atmosphere of Earth, originally expelled by the Sun-orbiting asteroid-like object 3200 Phaethon. ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Christle Prado 34 Keith Driscoll 26 Winter Garden Florida Abusive mother-of-three arrested for forcing her mentally-ill son, 10, to dress up as a girl and put make up on because he wet the bed A Florida mom and her roommate are facing child cruelty charges after forcing her 10-year-old son to dress up like a girl and then posting pictures of the humiliation on Facebook. Authorities learned about the incident after a relative of Christle Prado saw the photos online and noticed the young boy was visibly upset about being punished. Prado claims Driscoll, who also happens to be her landlord, came up with the idea as a way to punish the child for bad behavior, and trying to blame him for what she did, she claims she went along with it for fear of compromising her living situation. According to Kristi Gray, a representative from the Department of Children and Families, “It was clear to me and anyone else who saw these pictures that this boy was clearly distraught and fearful about what was happening to him…It becomes mental injury when the child is traumatized during the event and after the event,” said Gray. When officials went to visit Prado’s residence, they found the boy raking leaves in the yard, and when prompted about it, still emotional from the ordeal. Prado and Discoll are being charged with cruelty toward children, which is a second-degree felony, and infliction of mental injury on a child. The boy and his two siblings are now in the care of his grandmother, who had reported the incident, and who says that the boy has a known mental illness and that the abuse has gone on for far too long. She has tried to gain custody and funding for some time. Prado reportedly told an investigator that she was frustrated that her son had been wetting himself and went to Driscoll for advice. Driscoll had the idea for dressing her son up as a girl. Prado says the boy was dressed as a girl for only two minutes. Police learned about the incident after grandmother claims she saw Facebook photos of the boy wearing the dress and crying. Tech Support Pits From: Dwayne Re: Find files Dear Webby When I try to find a file using ther Windows SEARCH, it acts as stupid as if it was a screen saver and craps out as soon as a fly shakes my desk. Is there a way around that? Dwayne Dear Dwayne Yes, there is! As soon as you have finished typing the name of the file you are searching for, or part of it, you see a tiny magnifying glass and the text "See more results" just above where you typed. Hit that! That will open a File Explorer with all the search results, and it won't "crap out" as you so eloquently put it. You can even sort those search results. Depending on the size of your hard drives, it might take some time to finish searching. Just give it time. You can do other work and don't have to worry about it collapsing and giving up like the ordinary Search. Have FUN!

Daily tip from Unexpected Company Keep some practical spare gifts on the side just in case you need one for an unexpected guest! I have a few generic 'go to' gifts; several jars of local jelly, jam, maple syrup or honey with a simple square of fabric tied to the top of each jar looks good. Or a bar or two of beautifully hand decorated soap or even bottles of wine. If you don't use them for guests, you could still use them after the holidays!

______________________________________________________ Little Nancy wailed over her doll, crushed by car tires when her mother had backed over it. Finally, her mother had heard enough, "Don't come crying to me. I told you not to leave it on the porch!" ______________________________________________________ An hysterical mother phones the family's pediatrician with an emergency. "Doctor," she says, "I was writing a letter when my two-year-old came along, grabbed my fancy fountain pen and swallowed it. What should I do?" "Don't panic, I'll be right over," says the doctor. "In the meantime, what are you doing?" he asks. "I'm using a pencil."
