Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain. --- Friedrich von Schiller (1759 - 1805) The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself. --- Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900) ______________________________________________________ A man dies and goes to heaven, and Saint Peter asks him what religion he belongs to. The man tells him, and Saint Peter says, "Oh, we have a lot of your kind here. In fact, we have a special room for all of you, so you can all be together." He leads the man down a long hallway with doors on either side. They pass one door and they hear a bunch of yelling and hollering inside. "Who's in that room?" the man asks. "Oh, those are the holy rollers," says Saint Peter. "They make a lot of noise but they're pretty harmless". They pass by another door which is nearly shaking off its hinges. "Who's in there?" the man asks. "That's the room for the Shakers," replies Saint Peter. Then they approach another door. Saint Peter whispers to the man, "We must be very quiet going past this door. Don't make a sound." They tiptoe past the door and when they get farther down the hallway the man asks Saint Peter who was in that room. "Oh, those are the Catholics. They think they're the only ones up here!" ______________________________________________________ A fellow in a bar notices a woman, always alone, come in on a fairly regular basis. After the second week, he made his move. "No thank you." she said politely. "This may sound rather odd in this day and age, but I'm keeping myself pure until I meet the man I love." "That must be rather difficult." the man replied. "Oh, I don't mind too much." she said. "But, it has my husband pretty upset." ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by David Eli Lingafelter, 20, Olympia, Washington Robber Carried Bag With Dollar Sign APRIL 10--When David Eli Lingafelter was arrested Wednesday for the robbery of a Subway restaurant in Olympia, Washington, he was carrying a white canvas bag with a large, handwritten dollar sign on it, police report. The bag--not unlike those seen in the hands of crooks in comics and cartoons--was tied to the front of Lingafelter’s pants when police nabbed the 20-year-old shortly after the sandwich shop heist. Police allege that Lingafelter entered the Subway wearing a white hat and a red bandana over his face, adding that he “reached into his pocket as if he had a weapon.” After directing a female employee to open the cash register and place her hands on her head, Lingafelter swiped $100 and the worker’s cell phone. While committing the robbery, Lingafelter warned the Subway employee not to “do anything funny,” police reported. Lingafelter was later apprehended hiding behind a dumpster at a nearby shopping center. A police search of the suspect turned up a knife, $100 in cash, and a phone matching the description of the one stolen from the Subway worker. Additionally, investigators noted, Lingafelter “also had a white canvas bag tied to the front of his pants that had a dollar sign printed on it.” As seen above, police photographed Lingafelter with the bag at his waist (and also took a closeup shot of the item). Lingafelter was booked on robbery and obstruction charges. He is being held in the Thurston County jail in lieu of $10,000 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Linda Re: Painting program Dear Webby, My daughter is going to college in the fall, and will need some kind of painting program. Do you know of one, that does not cost an arm and a leg, and that she can learn to use by fall? Thanks Linda Dear Linda I have used PaintShopPro since about 1990, and don't really need anything heavier. You can get older versions quite cheaply on eBay. If she needs total power for huge projects, then there is GIMP. (Gnu Image Manipulation Project) It is totally free and without ad ware, if you get it from GIMP directly: Many colleges and most universities use Linux. To download and install GIMP on Linux, type perl -MCPAN Some colleges specify Photoshop, because the staff get free copies if they insist their students get it, and because it is the only program the snobs know. Find out what the policy is at the college she plans to go to. GIMP is generally considered much more powerful than Photoshop, but because it can do so much, takes a bit of getting used to. There are, of course many more graphics programs, but most other ones beside those three, are not college and university level. Have FUN!

I buy them only when they are on sale. I wash them, chop them, then spread them on a cookie sheet. I let a little fan blow on them for about half an hour. This reduces the surface moisture a bit, thereby reducing the formation of ice crystals when I freeze them. I still get enough ice crystals to cause the peppers to stick together. I found that if after doing the above, I place a coffee filter in the freezer bag and squeeze all air out before sealing, the peppers will have very little ice crystals on them, and all the little pieces will remain separate and even pourable.

Her friend tells her to spend the night at her house and go home the next day. When she hears this, Kathy rushes out the door and comes back a while later totally drenched and carrying a small, soggy paper bag. So her friend asks "Where did you run off too?" "I went home to get my pajamas!" _____________________________________________________ Each evening bird lover Tom stood in his backyard, hooting like an owl - and one night, an owl finally called back to him. For a year, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. He even kept a log of the "conversation". Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife had a chat with her next door neighbor. "My husband spends his nights calling out to owls," she said. "That's odd," the neighbor replied. "So does my husband!" ____________________________________________________
