A young and beautiful woman gets into the elevator, smelling of Expensive perfume. She turns to the old woman and says arrogantly, "Romance" by Ralph Lauren, $150 an ounce!" Then another young and beautiful woman gets on the elevator, and also very arrogantly turns to the old woman saying, "Channel No. 5, $200 an ounce!" About three floors later, the old woman has reached her destination and is about to get off the elevator. Before she leaves, she looks both beautiful women in the eye, then bends over, raises her skirt and trumpets a fart like the finale of an opera. Just before the elevator doors close behind her, she turns and whispers into the eyewatering fumes: "Broccoli, 49 cents a pound." ______________________________________________________ The young lady walked over to the room where she knew her friend was. "May I see Irving, please?" she asked the woman blocking the door. "We don't allow anyone but relatives to see the patients," replied the woman. "Are you a member of the family?" "Why-er-why, yes. I'm his sister," said the lady. "Oh, I'm so glad to meet you," said the woman. "I'm his mother!" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Noella for this picture: My knock-out roses ______________________________________________________ A man driving in Southern Indiana, heading for Kentucky, saw a sign that read: "LAST CHANCE FOR $1.25 GAS!!!" He still had more than half of a tank left, but figured he'd better take advantage of this opportunity to fill up. As he was getting his change from the attendant, he asked, "How much is gas in Kentucky?" The man replied, "$1.19." ______________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by John Yates, 44, Topsham, Maine
Man huffs canned air after crash as cop watches Police say a Maine man crashed his SUV into a guardrail on an interstate and then inhaled canned air in front of the officer who pulled him over. Topsham Sgt. Robert Ramsay tells the Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/1JxG2kp) that 44-year-old John Yates was arrested Monday night on Interstate 295 in Topsham. Ramsay says police saw Yates pull into a breakdown lane, then pull out suddenly, almost hitting a tractor-trailer. Police say a slow pursuit ensued until Yates hit a guardrail and crashed into a ditch. Police say Yates then grabbed a canister of keyboard cleaner and began huffing it. Yates faces charges including driving under the influence of drugs. He was being held Wednesday on $1,000 bail. Most likely the canned air gambit was to mask some real dope, but apparently they did not test for that.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jim Re: Move Eudora Dear Webby, Greeting to you and thanks for all of you help, and the good jokes. I have just set up Eudora on my Laptop. What is the best way to get my Eudora address book from my PC to the laptop? I hope there is a simple solution to do this? Thanks in advance. Jim Dear Jim Yes, very simple. Once you have set up Eudora, all you do is copy over the entire contents of the Eudora directory. All the mailboxes and everything. Attachment and Embedded folders, all the folders. The setup just sets up the directory structure and puts Eudora into the registry. I have done that with every machine migration since the early 90's. If you don't want the mailboxes and JUST the address books: Address Book Files nndbase.txt: Your nicknames are saved in the nndbase.txt file. Note that this file contains the nicknames only, while the files in the Nickname folder contain the full data for each Address Book entry which includes the nickname and more. nndbase.toc: This file is the table of contents for your nicknames. The same characteristics apply as with the TOC files for the mailboxes. Nickname folder: Address Book entries are saved in the Nickname folder, in the default Eudora Nicknames file. If you have created additional Address Book files, they are kept under their own name in the Nickname directory. Personally, I just drag the entire contents of the Eudora folder over to the new machine, and continue working. Have FUN!

But sometimes, they can be used in the laundry room for catching the clothes before they wrinkle. I realized when finding a second hook that if your door is thinner, you can get more hanger room by flipping them upside down. The square garners you more hanger space, and the curved part hugs the thinner doors better. One hook holds 4 hangers and the other holds 6. This door is to the hot water heater, but some have cupboards over the washer and dryer, too. Hope that helps. PBP By Sandi/Poor But Proud [446] ______________________________________________________
