Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor. --- Robert Frost (1874 - 1963) ______________________________________________________ A Sunday School teacher is telling her class the story of Jonah and the whale. The childrenís eyes get bigger and bigger as she tells them that Jonah was swallowed by the whale and sat in its stomach for three days and three nights before God answered his prayer and the whale expelled Jonah onto dry land. When she finishes the story the teacher asks, "Now children, what does this story teach us?" There's a long pause. Finally, a six-year-old boy exclaims: "You can't keep a good man down!" ______________________________________________________ A ThirdAger is getting his annual physical when the doctor notices several dark, ugly bruises on the man's shins.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Michael Jenkins 23 Upper Darby Pennsylvania Jerk groped drive-thru worker at McDonald's A Pennsylvania man was charged yesterday with an assortment of crimes after he allegedly reached into a McDonald’s drive-thru window and fondled a female employee working the night shift. According to a probable cause affidavit, Michael Jenkins, 23, and another man walked up early Thursday morning to the eatery in Upper Darby, a Philadelphia suburb. Jenkins, seen at right, reportedly flirted with the 31-year- old McDonald’s employee, and offered to pick her up later that day for a date. The worker, police reported, ignored Jenkins. Before departing the window, Jenkins reached in and grabbed the woman’s breast, cops say. After the victim shut the window, she spoke with a McDonald’s manager who then called 911. Jenkins went from the fast food restauarant to a nearby bar, where he was arrested by cops. Jenkins was charged with indecent assault, public drunkenness, harassment, and disorderly conduct. He was later freed on an unsecured $30,000 bond. When Jenkins was confronted by an officer, he admitted to being at the McDonald’s, according to the affidavit. “Yea I am a ladies man,” Jenkins told the cop. “That girl over there wants me,” he added, referring to the McDonald’s employee. Tech Support Pits From: Robert Re: Cyberalert Dear Webby The National Cyber Awareness System has sent out an alert about a Server Message Block (SMB) Worm Tool, partrs ofr which had apparently been used to hack Sony. The whole report is way too technical for me, but I gather that it affects Windows Servers and Windows machines, and that the details are at https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/tips/ST13-003 Can you tran slate their recommendations so that I can understand them? Thanks Robert Dear Robert If you use McAfee and Malwarebytes, and use common sense when it comes to downloading utilities and games, then you will be quite safe. Sony apparently used a Windows network instead of Linux or UNIX, and once that Worm Tool was inside, they lost control without even noticing it. That does not mean all Windows networks are automatically vulnerable. Keep in mind, your little home network is not going to be targeted by North Korea, and the only way your home network will get compromised, is if you or a family member downloads some stuff, that includes a free bonus tool bar or similar trojan horse.

______________________________________________________ A soldier was asked to report to headquarters for assignment. The sergeant said: "We have a critical shortage of typists. I'll give you a little test. Type this," he ordered, giving him a pamphlet to copy and a sheet of paper, and pointing to a desk across the room that held a typewriter and an adding machine. The soldier, quite reluctant to become a clerk typist, made a point of typing very slowly, and saw to it that his work contained as many errors as possible. The sergeant gave the typed copy only a brief glance. "That's fine," he said. "Report for work at 8 tomorrow." "But aren't you going to check the test?" the prospective clerk asked. The sergeant grinned. "You passed the test," he replied, "when you sat down at the typewriter instead of at the adding machine." ______________________________________________________ A painter, whitewashing the inner walls of a country outhouse, had the misfortune to fall through the opening and land in the muck at the bottom. He shouted, "Fire! Fire! Fire!" at the top of his lungs. The local fire department responded with alacrity, sirens roaring as they approached the privy. "Where's the fire?" called the chief. "No fire," replied the painter as they pulled him out of the hole. "But if I had yelled, '****! ****! ****!', who would have rescued me?"
