Nothing is so admirable in politics as a short memory. --- John Kenneth Galbraith (1908 - 2006) ______________________________________________________ Geography lesson for today: Climax, NC is south of High Point, NC which has a small settlement to its north called Horneytown, NC. Strange but entirely true! So that puts High Point in between Horneytown and Climax. ______________________________________________________ A doctor told Mrs. Stone to give her husband one pill a day and one small sip of whiskey to improve his stamina. A month later, when Mrs. Stone came in for another visit, the doctor asked, "How are we doing with the pill and the whiskey?" Mrs. Stone answered, "Well, he's a little behind with the pills, but he's about six months ahead with the whiskey." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roy for this picture: Click through for the big picture

Police say his son's baby sitter, 28-year-old Tiffany Lovejoy, had also passed out from using heroin. Police say McGarr's 3-year-old son was in the back seat without a car seat. McGarr and Lovejoy are charged with felony child endangering. Court documents list no attorneys for them. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Melody Re: Why are big drives slow? Dear Webby, You mentioned a week vacation while virus scanning a 4 TB drive. Can't you continue working during the can? Melody Dear Melody Yes, you can, if you have lots of patience. Scanning a big drive really slows down the computer, and you tend to stop the scan when your patience runs out, not when the scan is completed. If you have a few smaller dirves, for example the 500 MB drives we use on servers, then you can schedule scans for night time, a different drive every night. That way you won't be inconvenienced during working time, and get complete scans. You could do something similar by partitioning the big drive into virtual drives. That helps with the malware scanning, but regular work is much slower than with separate drives. Have FUN!

I spray it on the fitted sheet and a drop on the pillows. Then I crawl into a bed that always smells like the sheets just came from the line outside.

I ran out of money," said Phil.

One beautiful Sunday morning, a priest announced to his congregation: "My good people, I have here in my hands three sermons... a $100 sermon that lasts five minutes, a $50 sermon that lasts fifteen minutes, a $10 sermon that lasts a full hour, and a coin sermon that lasts till noon. Now, we'll take the collection to see which one you want." _____________________________________________________ The newly-married husband came home from the office to find his young wife in floods of tears. "Darling, what is the matter?" he asks. "Sweetheart," she sobs, "the most terrible thing has happened! I cooked my very first Beef Bourguignon for you, and I got it out the oven to season it, and the phone rang. When I came back from answering the phone an hour later," she sobbed again "I found that the cat had eaten it!" "Don't worry, darling," said her husband. "Don't cry. I'll get you a new cat in the morning..."
