The reverse side also has a reverse side. --- Japanese Proverb The more original a discovery, the more obvious it seems afterwards. --- Arthur Koestler (1905 - 1983) ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Ann for this story: I wanted a haircut and phoned a salon early for an appoint- ment but was told customers were taken on a walk-in basis only. On Saturday I got there by 9 a.m. and there were already ten people waiting. I drove to another salon, but it was booked solid. Still another had no openings. The situation seemed hopeless, so I went home. My husband greeted me at the door. "That was fast," he said cheerfully. "Your hair looks great!" ______________________________________________________ The heaviest element known to science is Managerium.

Managerium has a half-life of three years, at which time it does not decay but institutes a series of reviews leading to reorganization. Its molecules are held together by means of the exchange of tiny particles known as morons. ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Andrew Michael Christenson, 24, Pocatello, Idaho Cops arrest batman on outstanding warrant Late Saturday evening, cops in Pocatello, Idaho received a call that suspicious subjects “dressed as Batman and Superman were attempting entry into a residence.” When cops later approached the pair, they claimed to be looking for a party, according to police. Upon further questioning, officers determined that Batman-- Andrew Michael Christenson--had an active arrest warrant. “The Dark Knight was taken into custody and incarcerated,” cops reported. Seen above, the 24-year-old Christenson was arrested and booked into the Bannock County jail, where he was photographed sans mask. No charges were filed against Superman. Tech Support Pits From: Nina Re: Play DVD on W8.1 Dear Webby My not very bright husband traded in my W7 computer for a new one with W8.1. Yuck! Worst of all, it does not play music and games off DVDs! He is not going to hear the end of that anytime soon! Is there a way around that? Nina Dear Nina Yes, there is. You are not the only one upset about that, but there is a very popular program called VLC, that takes care of that. It does a much better job of it than MediaPlayer did even in W7. The only downside is the myriad of options in it. Do you want Surround Sound for 7 speakers or for 5, or just two? And so on. It is usable with the default settings, but you can tweak it to perfection if you read the instructions. You can download it free from VideoLan #download Have FUN!

Too late for a trip to the store. I realized I had some extra hot dog buns though, and decided I could improvise. The improvising turned out well and I haven't bought pre-made garlic bread since. Not only are they tasty, but this costs way less since hot dog buns are so cheap. Enjoy! :) Approximate Time: Around 14 minutes Yield: As many as you like Ingredients: hot dog buns butter or margarine salt powdered Parmesan cheese Italian seasoning garlic powder Steps: Split as many hot dog buns in half as you like. split in half Spread a generous amount of butter or margarine on each. spread with butter or margarine Sprinkle generous amounts of salt, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder on each buttered half. butter and seasonings addd Bake in a 450 degree F oven for about 13 minutes or until golden brown.

I once gave him a haircut and got carried away. He looked at the pile of gray hair on the floor, smiled and said, "You cut off half the chrome!" ______________________________________________________ My 50-something friend Nancy and I decided to introduce her mother to the magic of the Internet. Our first move was to access the popular "Ask Jeeves" site, and we told her it could answer any question she had. Nancy's mother was very skeptical, but finally typed in a question: "How is aunt Nellie doing?
