Printing a hassle with Chrome 

Good Morning, ,
Today is Monday, January 19

We got quite a Chinook gusting out there. Sandie's hurricane
gong is chiming like  crazy, even though it is inside the 
covered deck. It will be interesting to see in daylight how 
many branches and trees have been knocked down. There won't
be a lot, since we have Chinooks every now and then cleaning
up any trees, that have become weak or not strong enough
to withstand a Chinook. 

Judging by the gong, the Chinook is blowing at 50, 
gusting to 100. Snow and ice are getting evaporated, 
without going through a liquid state. It is all heading 
towards Toronto and Chicago, and will get there in 
about 5 days.

Have FUN!

What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do. --- John Ruskin (1819 - 1900) ______________________________________________________ A neighbor down the street was home every day, sitting on his porch. After a few weeks I asked him what was going on. He replied, "I left my job because of illness and fatigue in management." A few weeks later, his wife gave me the real truth of what happened. Turns out his boss got sick and tired of him. ______________________________________________________ A missionary discovered a tribe of natives who had never recorded a baptism, confirmation or marriage. The missionary soon rectified the situation by baptizing and confirming everyone. He also married every couple that walked by and desired such. Later, the tribal chief told the missionary that the tribe had never had so much fun. The missionary asked the chief which part they enjoyed the most. "The marriage stuff," the chief said, smiling. "We all got new wives, and all without the oldfashioned and traditional hassles with divorce lawyers and courts and custody battles and waiting periods!" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roy for this picture: Click through for the big picture Earth, Jupiter, and Venus seen from Mars >From Lillemor Best Prank

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier 22, Pemberton Township, NJ Mother Set Newborn On Fire On New Jersey Road A New Jersey woman who authorities say put her newborn baby in the middle of a road and set the child on fire was charged Saturday with murder. Burlington County prosecutors said Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier, 22, of Pemberton Township was jailed on $500,000 bail. Police responded to a Friday night call about a fire in the middle of a residential road in the township, about 30 miles east of Philadelphia. Officers found the baby in flames and put out the fire. The child reportedly was alive and breathing at the time she was flown to a hospital in Philadelphia, said Joel Bewley, a spokesman for the prosecutor's office. She died about two hours later, he said in a news release. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death. Authorities believe the mother doused her baby with an accelerant then set her on fire, Bewley said. They do not have a motive. The woman was taken into custody Friday night. Prosecutor Robert Bernardi said details of the baby's birth were still being investigated. The baby's age has not been disclosed. Bernardi would not comment on whether the mother has a criminal record or if she has been involved with child welfare officials. Dave Joseph, 45, of Pemberton Township told The Burlington County Times that he saw a young woman get out of her car and light something on fire in the middle of Simontown Road. He said the woman told him she was burning dog waste. Joseph said the woman appeared calm and soon tried to flee the scene, but residents stopped her. "It was just mind-boggling," Joseph said. "It was a nightmare even if you have a strong heart." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Elsa Re: Printing a hassle with Chrome Dear Webby, I got Chrome on your advice, and I love it, except for printing. I am used to print some stuff, like personal letters, at high resolution and no scaling and in color, and I print invoices at 70% scale, just black, and low resolution, toner-save mode. Switching between the two is a real hassle with Chrome. What do you suggest? Elsa Dear Elsa Yes, I agree, when it comes to printing, Chrome is way behind FireFox and still rather immature. Just open FireFox on the side and use that for printing. There is no problem running FF beside Chrome. CTRL SHIFT P lets you get into the printer system settings, but it is much more time consuming than to just use FireFox for printing. Have FUN!

However this year I decided to try searching the internet for a 1/2 pie pan, in the off chance that I could actually find one. What do you know; Amazon sells one! It is called the Split Decision pie pan and I am in love with it. It cost a few dollars more than one 1/2 pie which is going to save me a lot of money over the years. To purchase: Split Decision Pie Pan It is actually better than what I had in mind because it has multiple options. You can bake 1/2 a pie, two different 1/2 pies, or swap out the bottom and bake a whole pie. So it also is great for the times that you can't decide on a flavor that will make everyone happy. :) Whether you want to give our tradition a try or you want to have harmony at Thanksgiving, you should get this pie pan! birthday girl with pie 2 *** Half for her and half for everyone else to share! :) By lalala...

A woman met her husband at the train station after work for the ride home. He looked haggard, so she asked, "Rough day?" "You bet it was," he groaned.

"I don't want to know!" the child said, bursting into tears. Confused, the father asked his son what was wrong. "Oh dad," he sobbed, "at age five I got the 'there's no Santa' speech. At age six I got the 'there's no Easter bunny' speech. Then at age seven you hit me with the 'there's no tooth fairy' speech! If you're going to tell me now that grown-ups don't really have sex, I've got nothing left to live for!"
