Sandy spoke to the insurance agent and said, "We had that barn insured for twohundred and fifty thousand, and I want my money." The agent replied, "Whoa there, just a minute. Insurance doesn't work quite like that. An independent adjuster will assess the value of what was insured, and then we'll provide you with a new barn of similar worth." There was a long pause, and then Sandy replied, "If that's how it works, cancel the life insurance policy on my husband RIGHT NOW!!" ______________________________________________________ At a dinner party, one of the guests, an obnoxiously loud young man, tried to make clever remarks about everyone and everything. He was served a piece of meat, and as he picked it up with his fork, he held it up and smirked: "Is this pig?" Another guest, sitting opposite, asked quietly: "Which end of the fork are you referring to?" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Lillemor for this picture: Showing its beauty in Pismo Beach CA today. ~~ Lillemor ______________________________________________________ Yesterday was Bill's graduation. And as he walked across the stage, the Dean handed his diploma to him, nicely rolled up and tied with a ribbon. Once she handed it to him, he could finally tell that [censored] what he REALLY thought about her. So he leaned across her podium and looked her straight in the eye. "Hey [censored]" he said. "You're so darn ugly, you could practice birth control just by leaving the lights on!" And then he walked off the stage, and went home. Bill felt just as good as he had imagined it would for the last four years. Today, he unwrapped his diploma, framed it, and hung it in the living room, where it proudly exclaims to the world: "In order to receive your diploma, please present this certificate to the Dean of your college after final grades have been posted!" ______________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tayler Aughtman, 19, Chesnee, SC
SC Teen Allegedly Steals Bondage Gear A teen in Spartenburg, S.C, might be tied up in court after being accused of stealing bondage gear. A Spencer's Gift Store employee saw Tayler Aughtman, 19, of Chesnee “approach the bondage section and put something in her purse” on Tuesday, according to The Smoking Gun. The purloined item was a Fantasy Bed Stretcher, a $39,99 restraint device that turns any bed into a rack suitable for a dungeon. The employee detained Aughtman and called police. The report doesn't mention whether the employee used any of the restraint devices sold in the bondage section to keep the suspect from fleeing. According to the police report, Aughtman told police she'd also stolen $84 of panties from a nearby Victoria's Secret. Because she'd been a naughty, naughty girl, the officer took Aughtman to the lingerie store to return the stolen underwear. She was taken to the Spartanburg County Jail and booked on two counts of shoplifting for less than $2,000 and released early Wednesday morning, according to jail records.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Nancy Re: What is Ubuntu? Dear Webby, I have heard the name Ubuntu before, but never any explanation of what it is. Is that some African version of Windows? Nancy Dear Nancy Ubuntu is a popular flavor of Linux. Linux is a version of the UNIX server language but made for PC. Linux is about half way between UNIX and Windows. Unlike Windows, with Linux you have a choice of many "flavors". If you don't like one flavor, or if a friend recommends a different one, you can switch without any hassle. Some Linux users get right religious about their chosen version and can argue at great length why that version is better. Most, though, just pick a version and use it for getting their work done. Industry and commerce usually use Linux. Pretty well all the Point-Of-Sale machines in stores are on Linux or on XP. Ubuntu is ideal for home and small office use. On my servers, where there are at times over a thousand visitors (users) at the same time, I use CentOS. In between there are probably hundreds of different flavors of Linux. If you want to switch to Linux, first find a nearby penguin, as Linux users are usually referred to, and ask for recommendations. Also ask if she or he would be willing to coach you a bit. Many penguins are almost as eager to coach you as Jehova Witnesses are to teach you. Usually they will give you a CD or Thumb Drive or camera chip with the Linux Operating System on it. Those are called "Live CD". You can stick that into your machine, and boot up with it. Then you are running Linux. No need to get rid of Windows. That way you can try different flavors of Linux before you settle on any one of them. Once you have decided, then you can install it on your hard drive. Many people leave their machine as a Dual-Boot, where they can choose at boot-up whether they are going to run Linux or Windows. Once they are comfortable with Linux and have transferred all worthwhile files to the Linux partition, or with their next machine, then they make that a single boot Linux machine. Have FUN!

Drop the litter filled socks into the pair of shoes or sneakers. Litter was created to reduce and remove some heavy duty odors, so it's perfect for this! My daughter also had a new pair of shoes that were a little tight fitting, so we just stuffed the litter filled socks tightly into those shoes (I did spritz the inside of the shoe first, ever so slightly) and it did loosen them up to fit her better too!

_____________________________________________________ That reminds me... An anthropologist was assigned to Borneo, where he found a guide with a canoe to take him up the river to the remote site he where he would make his collections. At noon on the second day of travel up the river they began to hear drums. "What are those drums?" asked the anthropologist, knowing he was in cannibal country. The guide turned to him and said "No worry. Drums OK, but very bad when they stop." They both went ghostly pale when the drums suddenly stopped. The guide crouched in the belly of the canoe and covered his ears. "Do as I do! Very important!" hissed the guide with great urgency. "Why? What does this mean?" asked the panicked anthropologist. In a terrified whisper the native replied: "Drums stop! Next come violin solo!" ___________________________________________________
