Good Morning, ,
Today is Saturday, October 10

Thank you, Elizabeth!!

After yesterday's uncomplimentary remarks about IE,
by sheer coincidence, of course,
FaceBook blocked me. They claimed that DearWebby was not
my real name. 
DearWebby has been my name a lot longer than FaceBook
has been theirs!

It's just a minor nuisance. Considering the source, it really
is not a big deal. I rarely spend more than 5 minutes per
day on FB, and the number of FB friends are only about 1/6
of the Humor Letter readers, if that. 

You can still get to my FB page with old links, so it really
is not a big deal.

Have FUN!

When she returned, she found the children in perfect order. Everybody was sitting absolutely quiet. She was shocked and stunned and said, "I've never seen anything like it before. This is wonderful. But, please tell me, what came over all of you? Why are you so well behaved and quiet?" Finally, after much urging, spoke up and said, "Well, one time you said that if you ever came back and found us quiet, you would drop dead." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Noella for this picture: No, she did not go out onto the porch to take that picture! ______________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Carnell Eugene Butler 18, St. Petersburg, Florida
Florida car thief arrested for driving stolen car to police station Authorities say an 18-year-old man drove a stolen car to police headquarters to pick up court papers about a previous auto theft he was involved in documents that were found in yet another stolen car. Carnell Eugene Butler now faces charges in three stolen car cases. St. Petersburg police say officers found a stolen Infiniti on Sunday. Inside, they found Butler's documents related to a June auto theft arrest. Detectives contacted Butler, who arranged to pick them up. When he arrived at police headquarters, a detective arrested Butler and found keys to a Hyundai Sonata in his pocket. The car was located a block away. It, too, had been reported stolen. Butler is held without bond.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dani Re: Firefox and/or Chrome Good Morning Webby, I see in today's Webby tips that you suggest using Chrome, or at least FireFox. I am using FireFox. Do you think Chrome is better than FireFox? If I install Chrome, should I remove FireFox or keep it as a back up? Thanks for all you do to help us. Dani Dear Dani You can have both FireFox AND Chrome running side by side. Personally, I prefer Chrome, but sometimes I use both Chrome and Firefox side by side to compare how a new design appears on different browsers. Usually they are quite consistent these days. There is no need to get rid of one. Unlike IE, those two are both quite secure.

I also find that when I put it away in my storage box it sticks to everything. To solve both of these issues I have started storing the rolls in plastic baggies. I use both sandwich (holds 1 roll) and gallon (holds 4 rolls) sized bags. By lalala... [696] By the way, it's DUCK tape, not duct tape. The name comes from DUCK Weave, a square weave strip as used for the Egyptian mummies and countless applications since then. Hospital tape is one of the better known ones, and so is Duck Tape. A Duck weave tape always tears straight across, never lengthwise like Fiber Tape. Duck tape of course is also used for taping ducts, where the workers appreciate that it tears straight across and never lengthwise. There have been lots of arguments and even lawsuits about duck versus duct. The fact is, though, it has been called duck tape for a lot longer than there have been ducts. Have FUN!
