There is no such thing as "fun for the whole family." --- Jerry Seinfeld (1954 - ) Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike. --- J. K. Rowling, ______________________________________________________ >From Roland A woman was outside pulling weeds on a hot summer day when her husband walked up and asked her what they were having for dinner. Irritated by the thought of him sitting in the air conditioned house while she laborer away on the weeds, she snapped, "I can't believe you're asking me about supper right now! Pretend I'm out of town, go inside and make dinner yourself!" So he went back in the house and fixed himself a big steak, potatoes, garlic bread, and a tall beer. His wife walked in just about the time he was finishing up and asked, "Where's my dinner?" "Huh? I thought you were out of town," he replied. ______________________________________________________ John: I got this great new hearing aid the other day. Mary: Are you wearing it now? John: Yup.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Charles McDowell 54, Daytona Beach Floriduh
Florida Man, who brought 2 Kids To Failed Drug Deal, and called the cops A Florida man is facing child abuse charges after allegedly bringing his two kids to a botched drug deal. Charles McDowell, 54, was arrested Sunday night in the parking lot of a Motel 6 near Daytona Beach after Volusia County Sheriff's deputies were called there for a reported armed robbery, reports. When they first questioned McDowell, he said that a stranger had robbed him at gunpoint in the parking lot, taking his wallet, money and keys, according to McDowell then changed his story, and said that he was there to buy pain pills from a man who robbed him. Because McDowell had two 6-year-old boys with him at the time of the alleged drug deal, he was arrested on two counts of child abuse, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal. McDowell was released from the Volusia County Jail on Monday after posting $10,000 bond. The two children were turned over to their respective mothers, according to the Brevard Times. The man who allegedly robbed McDowell has not been arrested, reports.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Punk Re: How to change image format Dear Webby, This was your response to Friday's question about small pictures: First open them and save them as PNG, PSP or PSD. Then change their size to 1200 x 900. My question is HOW do you change these? How do you save them as PNGor PSP? Or how do you change the size? I have been told to change something to JPG but have NO idea HOW to do that either. Thanks from those of us who know just enough to make us dangerous! Punk Dear Punk You need a graphics program. It doesn't have to be an expensive one. There are hundreds of free ones available. I bought PaintShopPro in 1989. Since then there have been lots of others doing more or less the same. Even Windows PAINT apparently has improved to the level, where some people are actually recommending it. Just google for "FREE graphics program", and try a few. I think all of them copied the SAVE AS feature, where you have a pull-down, where you can select the format. There are too many formats to list here. For normal use on the web JPG is best. For dedicated graphics work PSP and PSD are best, because they have built in archive. You can step back even after saving and shutting down. You can usually step back with CTRL Z even with JPG, but only until you save and close the picture. PNG is "Portable Network Graphic". If somebody on an Apple or Mac claims, that they can't open your JPG, save the picture as a PNG for them. However, that happens a lot less these days. For what you plan to do, JPG is best. GIF is worst. In the mid 80's GIF was a great step up from 16 color PIC, because GIF had 256 colors. WOW! Then came JPG with 16 MILLION colors. GIF is still used for animations. Just like on TV, when something is moving, the brain fills in stuff and jaggies or primitive colors are no problem. Unless you are painting frames for animations, avoid GIF. To change the size of a picture, you hit SHIFT S in Paint Shop Pro, and type in the desired size. You can select the pixel numbers, or the print size, for example 8" x 10". Other programs possibly use a different key combo, but you can always mouse around in the top menu, until you find something about size or resize. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Morris was at his usual place sitting at the table, reading the paper after breakfast. He came across an article about a beautiful actress that was about to marry a football player who was known primarily for his lack of smarts and common sense. He turned to his wife Sherry, with a look of question on his face. "I'll never understand why the biggest bozos get the most attractive wives." His wife replied, "Why thank you, dear!"
A man makes a suggestion to his wife, "Honey, what do you say that tonight we change positions?" His wife enthusiastically responds with, "Yes, I would really like that. Tonight, you stand by the ironing board and iron the laundry, and I'll slouch on the couch, watch the TV and fart." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Store Toys in Popcorn Tins We always used them for storing toys like my son's LEGOs and my daughter's Barbie clothes.
