How is HTML the same for PC and Mac? 

Good Morning, ,
Today is Tuesday, June 23

I find the current hysteria about the Confederate flag 
rather silly. Except for the odd weirdo and the leftist
media, most people identify the Confederate flag with the
"Dukes of Hazard", high speed police chases, tailgate parties,
big BBQs, and Southern Belles.

Every time I asked somebody, who had a Confederate flag
flying from their Harley or pick-up, whether it was about
the Civil War, they told me: "Nah, just mild rebellion 
against the feds. All young and adventurous people are a
bit rebellious. Nobody remembers the Civil War. I think we
almost won it, but no red-blooded American will admit to
having paid attention during history classes."

The term "race" or color was never mentioned. 
The "Dukes of Hazard" and "Easy Rider" had the Confederate 
flag, and Gone with the wind. Anything back further than 
that is probably Latin or Greek anyway.
So what's the big deal all of a sudden?

The Dukes of Hazard fans are not going to take kindly to that!

Shortly after followed the lawnmower, a few gardening tools and a bicycle. A curious neighbor wandered over and asked if he was going to have a garage sale. "No," replied the gentleman, "my son just bought his first car and right now he's getting ready for a big date." "So what's with all the stuff?" asked the neighbor. "Well, after years of moving tricycles, toys and sports equipment out of the way every time I came home from work, I wanted to make sure the driveway was ready for him." ______________________________________________________ A sixth grade class is doing some spelling drills.

Another little boy stands up and says, "Before, B-E-F-O-O-R." Again the teacher says, "No, that's wrong." The teacher asks, ", can you spell 'before'?" stands up and says, "Before, B-E-F-O-R-E." "Excellent , now can you use it in a sentence?" says, "That's easy.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Richard Chancey, 50, Sebastian, Floriduh
Florida man, who assaulted girlfriend after she walked in on him pleasuring another woman and started screaming at him. A woman was assaulted by her “on and off boyfriend” after walking in on him performing oral sex on another woman in a bedroom in the couple’s Florida home, police report. Richard Chancey, 50, was arrested around 4 AM yesterday and booked into jail on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. He remains locked up in lieu of $1000 bond, according to jail records. Responding to a 911 call, a Sebastian Police Department officer interviewed Sharon Lisovich, who said that she “began yelling at Richard and arguing with him” after discovering her beau “performing oral sex” on another woman, who is only identified as Angelika in the police report. As they argued, Lisovich recalled, Chancey struck her in the face with “an open fist.” Angelika confirmed Lisovich’s account of being hit by Chancey, but she “refused to advise on anything further.” When questioned by a cop, Chancey said that he was “in the spare bedroom with Angelika performing oral sex on her when Sharon walked in and began yelling and screaming at him.” Chancey claimed that Lisovich struck him in the back, but that he did not return the blow.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Manny Re: How is HTML the same for PC and Mac? Hi DearWebby, I grew up believing that no PC could ever read a Mac disk and no Mac could ever read a PC disk. How can both read the same HTML web page? Do I have to learn HTML now? Manny Dear Manny At night all cats are black, and on the web everything is readable, thanks to the browsers. Well, almost everything. I remember in the 80's when the web was still mostly UNIX and mostly text, that I resented that anything beyond text required a browser to read. Well, I got used to it. Lynx and then Netscape brought a whole new world of color. It has always been easy to snoop the underlying code of most web pages, as long as they were not written with Microsoft WORD. Other than that, though, the underlying code, HTML, was straightforward and easy. <. font color=red>This is red.<./font> Quite simple and straightforward. Hundreds, maybe thousands, of kids w rote tutorials and even page generators for fancier stuff. Some are still around, like the HTML course, that I have linked to since the earliest days of the Internet. Re your last question: No, you don't have to learn HTML. Nowadays probably 3/4 of the web pages out there are made just with page generators or WordPress, where you just upload text and pictures. Have Fun!

I started reading all the different solutions people had come up with, but I still wanted something easier. I was looking around my room and I saw my furniture polish sitting on top of my stereo. I grabbed it sprayed it on one of the jars and grabbed a flat screwdriver. It worked really good. Then I realized that if I just spray a coat of polish on the jar and let it sit for 10 minutes or maybe even five, the label and all the sticky glue comes right off with the wipe of a towel. What's even better is that I bought my furniture polish at the 99 cent store. By Gellen [1] ______________________________________________________

Just then, the person behind him tapped him on his shoulder and handed him a $20 bill. The boy smiled, placed the $20 in the plate and passed it on, admiring that the man was being generous. Then the boy felt another tap from behind and heard a whisper: "Son," the man said, "that was your $20 bill that had fallen out of your pocket." ____________________________________________________
