The main dangers in this life are the people who want to change everything - or nothing. --- Nancy Astor (1879 - 1964) To predict the behavior of ordinary people in advance, you only have to assume that they will always try to escape a disagreeable situation with the smallest possible expenditure of intelligence. --- Friedrich Nietzsche ______________________________________________________ I figured that at age seven it was inevitable for my son to begin having doubts about Santa Claus. Sure enough, one day he said, "Mom, I know something about Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy." Taking a deep breath, I asked him, "What is that?" He replied, "They're all nocturnal." ______________________________________________________ My brother and his wife shared their apartment with a parakeet named "Nicky." The exterminator was scheduled to come, so my sister-in-law put Nicky in the bedroom and hung a sign on the door: "Please skip this room. Do not open door. Pet flies." The exterminator came. On his receipt he wrote this comment: "Finished all of the apartment except room with the pet flies." ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ reported by Don An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Demetri Johnson, 21 Nashville Tennessee Man Pulled Gun Over Missing McDouble Burger Tennessee cops are hunting for a McDonald’s patron who pulled a gun on restaurant workers after complaining that his drive-thru order was short a McDouble cheeseburger. According to police, Demetri Johnson, 21, placed an order early last Thursday at a McDonald’s in Nashville. After receiving his food, he pulled away from the restaurant’s drive-thru lane. Johnson, pictured at right, soon returned to the eatery “and complained that he was missing a McDouble cheeseburger,” cops reported. A McDonald’s manager asked Johnson to park his car and promised “he would bring out the missing item.” Detectives allege that after waiting for a few minutes, Johnson entered the restaurant with a gun in his hand. After racking the weapon, he demanded that his McDouble order be fixed. “He and the three women with him also demanded fresh fries and new soft drinks,” cops added. The quartet departed after receiving their food. Johnson is being sought on a felony aggravated assault charge. According to court records, Johnson has previously been arrested for weapons possession and theft. Whether the original hamburger was already missing or not, won't have any effect when it comes to the sentencing for armed robbery. Tech Support Pits From: Aesop Re: Old Skype Dear Webby I don't like the new version of Skype at all. What are those bozos smoking? Whatever it is, it makes them look stupid. Is there a way to go back to a decent version? Thanks Aesop Dear Aesop Try Skype 6.20. That site might be VERY busy. If it is too busy, try Skype I am using the first of those two. Keep in mind that after you have had one of the bad versions like 6.22 or later installed, it will try to re-install that when you are not watching, for example during a reboot after updating something else. The result of course is quite obvious when you see the nuisance pufter design. Then you have to re-install 6.20 over top of it, again. They just like rubbing it in that you are the victim and they are the Queens Of Nuisance. Have FUN!

Daily tip from Almost Grandma's Applesauce My grandma recently passed away. She was the best cook in the world, anyone that knew her would tell you the same thing. One of her specialties was her applesauce. I have been fiddling with my recipe for quite some time, and this is finally "almost" just like Grandma's! This is shockingly quick to make, only cooks for 8-10 minutes. It tastes great still hot off the stove, you can also use any or all varieties of apples. I used what I had, red delicious, golden delicious, and Granny Smith. *This is a great way to use up those apples that you forgot about and are now less than perfect. Approximate Time: 10 minutes Yield: 7 Cups Ingredients: 15 smallish apples, any variety 2 cups water 3/4 cup white sugar 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp nutmeg Steps: Peel and quarter your apples, place them in a stock pot. Put water and spices in the pot. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes. You will want to stir occasionally. Using a potato masher, push down on your mixture only a few times to break up the very large pieces. Leave it chunky, that's what Grandma did. It's better that way!:) It is wonderful eaten hot off the stove, also very good from the fridge, freezes well too. That is if you have enough left over to do so!

______________________________________________________ After booking my 80-year-old mother on a flight from Florida to Nevada, I called the airline to go over her needs. The representative listened patiently as I requested a wheelchair and an attendant for my mother because of her arthritis and impaired vision. My apprehension lightened a bit when the woman assured me that everything would be taken care of. I thanked her profusely. "Oh, you're welcome," she replied. I was about to hang up when she cheerfully asked, "And will your mother need a rental car?" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Millie for this story: As a new grandmother, I am very protective of my daughter Meredith's baby girl. One cool afternoon I dropped by to see my grandchild. Meredith and a friend had taken little Allison for a walk in her stroller and were just coming up the street. As soon as they reached me, I bent down to admire Allison and, in my fussiest voice, remarked, "Your little head is cold. You should have a hat on." My daughter looked knowingly at her friend and said, "You owe me ten bucks."
