Reboot how often? 

Good Morning, ,

Today is Saturday, January 24

Had to go to the doctor and decided to walk instead of 
driving. Considering that the side roads are still solid ice,
that was a dumb idea. On the way home I klunked my head down
solid on the ice. When the Klunk stopped echoing, I saw my 
feet, with clouds behind them. No harp. Harps are at with Sylvia in Hawaii. Nice lady!

Hmm, guess I am not on THAT cloud. So I lowered my feet,
and contemplated what I had to do to get up. Then I heard a 
kind lady asking me if I was OK. Next she stretched out
a hand and helped me up.

Once I was up, she asked if she should come around in an 
hour or two to check uop on me. I really must have been 
rattled, because all I could think of was the mess in the
house, and the aching back and chest and lack of ambition
to do a majot clean-up in a hurry. So I declined.  
That was rather dumb and a sure sign of a concussion!

Oh, well, I am sure most of you have klunked down onto
hard ice or pavement, and felt just as silly as I did.
Back to work!

Have FUN!

The secret of being a bore is to tell everything. --- Voltaire (1694 - 1778) The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible. --- David M. Ogilvy ______________________________________________________ The boss ordered one of his men to dig a hole eight feet deep. After the job was completed the boss returned and explained an error had been made and the hole wouldn't be needed. "Fill 'er up," he ordered. The worker did as he'd been told. But he ran into a problem. He couldn't get all the dirt packed back into the hole without leaving a mound on top. He went to the office and explained his problem. The boss snorted. "Geee! The kind of help you get these days! There's obviously only one thing to do. You'll have to dig that hole deeper!" ______________________________________________________ It was the end of the school year, and a kindergarten teacher was receiving gifts from her pupils. The florist's son handed her a gift. She shook it, held it overhead, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Some flowers." "That's right" the boy said, "but how did you know?" "Oh, just a wild guess," she said. The next pupil was the candy shop owner's daughter. The teacher held her gift overhead, shook it, and said, "I bet I can guess what it is. A box of sweets." "That's right, but how did you know?" asked the girl. "Oh, just a wild guess," said the teacher. The next gift was a box from the son of the liquor store owner. The teacher held the package overhead, but it was leaking. She touched a drop of the leakage with her finger and touched it to her tongue. "Is it wine?" she asked. "No" the boy replied. The teacher repeated the process, taking a larger drop of the leakage to her tongue. "Is it champagne?" she asked. "No," the boy replied. The teacher took one more taste before declaring, "I give up, what is it?" The boy replied, "A puppy dog!" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roy for this picture: Click through for the big picture Plitvicka Jezera , Croatia

"The Tuscaloosa City School System learned of these allegations Tuesday, January 6, at which time an investigation was immediately conducted by both the Tuscaloosa Police Department and Tuscaloosa City School officials,” the school system said in a statement obtained by WIAT. “The following day, January 7, the Board of Education accepted the resignation of the teacher involved.“ ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Frodo Re: Reboot how often? Dear Webby, How often should one reboot Windows 7? It is slow at the best of times, but gets slower when not rebooted frequently. What Do you Suggets? Frodo Dear Frodo I reboot whenever a Windows Update requires it. No more than that. I use the Uniblue PC Mechanic to keep Windows tuned and unnecessary crap removed. My Windows is protected by McAfee and Malwarebytes, and thanks to PC Mechanic probably runs a bit faster than on day 1. Without those programs I would recommend shutting down every evening, real shut down, not just hibernating, and restarting the next day. Have FUN!

During an Army war game a commanding officer's jeep got stuck in the mud. The C.O. saw some men lounging around nearby and asked them to help him get unstuck. "Sorry sir," said one of the loafers, "but we've been classified dead and the umpire said we couldn't contribute in any way." The C.O. turned to his driver and said, "Go drag a couple of those dead bodies over here and throw them under the wheels to give us some traction." _____________________________________________________ A young man is an avid listener to the city's police frequency, and he leaves the scanner on all the time. One morning while making his bed, I heard the dispatcher say, "Car 34, there is a twelve-foot boa constrictor in the front yard of 27 Oak Street. The resident wants a policeman to come and remove it, but not to use shotguns or hand grenades, because there is a Kindergaten across the street." There was a long pause, then some static. Slowly, a voice said, "Looks like we have some engine trouble."
I've been over the Seven Mile Bridge, FL Keys and the Million Dollar Highway in Colorado, but some of these roads I don't care to travel!
