After an hour in the water, everyone got back on the boat, except for Nina and one handsome young man. As she continued her underwater exploring, she noticed that everywhere she swam to, he swam. Nina snorkeled for another 40 minutes. So did he. Nina felt very flattered and, as she took off my fins, asked him coyly why he had stayed in the water for so long. "I'm the lifeguard," he replied matter-of-factly. "It's my job to stay in the water till the last tourist is back on the boat." ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lisa Myers, 56, New Port Richey, Floriduh Florida woman was arrested after she ended a low speed chase right on the lawn of the police station. The subject of a pursuit on U-S 19 drives right to the police station, although that probably wasn't what she intended. Pasco Deputies say 56 year old Lisa Myers was driving north on 19 at Marine Parkway, and they noticed she was falling asleep at the wheel. When the deputy and a New Port Richey officer tried to pull her over, the sheriff's office says, Myers tried to run the cop over, and almost hit a patrol car during the low speed chase that followed. Myers ended up in the police parking lot, drove over a curb and onto the lawn, then she backed up and hit a cruiser. She is facing several charges, including aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer, fleeing to elude, and and investigation is ongoing to determine whether she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol or both. Investigators say they also found a gun inside her car. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Deb Re: Difference between laptop and desktop computers Dear Webby You mentioned laptops and desktops. What is the difference between laptops and desktops, aside from looks ? Deb Dear Deb As far as computer performance is concered, there is absolutely no difference whatsoever. Desktops use leftover powersupplies from the 1980's that pull dustbunnies and pet hair in through the CD drives, regulate the power by heating up that air and then blow the cleaned and heated air out the back through a noisy old fan. Laptops use power supplies from the 1990's and 2000's with smaller and quieter fans that pull the air in through a grill on the bottom. Those newer power supplies are a lot more efficient and don't produce anywhere near as much heat, even though they have the monitor, keyboard, touchpad and battery included. Also, with laptops, part of the waste heat is already gotten rid of by the coffee warmer, ahem battery charger. Both desktops and laptops have a metal box to shield magnetic radiation, that could annoy your TV watching spouse, but the laptop in addition to that has a cute plastic skin over that. Since the chips and electronics inside are the same, it must be the battery, monitor and plastic skin that cause laptops to still be a bit more expensive, but as the old 1980's stockpiles of power supplies and cases are getting used up, the prices are getting closer. Dell, for example, has quite decent laptops for under $500. Performance is identical, but desktops produce a lot more noise and heat. In the old days hard drives used to be a deciding factor, because with desktops you could stick additional hard drives in. Nowadays, you just use external hard drives plugged into a USB port. With external hard drives it makes no difference what kind of drive it is. No need to match the machine's connfiguration. Batteries used to be a concern, but if you just use the machine in your office, it will always be plugged in and the battery will last as long as the rest of the machine. Have FUN!

I made this recipe out of the blue and it turned out WAY better than I thought it would. It is so elegant, rich and super easy to make. My version only has five ingredients. Approximate Time: 45 to 55 minutes Yield: 9 to 12 brownies Ingredients: 1 pkg plain brownie mix (I used a generic 10.25 ounce pack) 1 medium/large orange 1/4 cup oil 1 egg 2/3 cup chocolate chips or chunks (I chopped up candy bars) Steps: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Take the zest off the whole orange. Chocolate Orange Fudge BrowniesChocolate Orange Fudge Brownies Separate orange zest equally in two bowls. Put one aside. Chocolate Orange Fudge Brownies Cut the orange into segments and squeeze the juice into one of the orange zest bowls. It should give you about half a cup of juice. Crack open and whisk your egg. Add orange juice and zest mixture into egg. Mix in the oil. Add package of brownie powder. Mix well, stirring at least 50 times. Add chocolate chips/chunks to your batter. Pour batter into a greased pan. Sprinkle the top with reserved orange zest. Depending on the size of your pan, bake from 35 to 40 minutes (do a toothpick test). Cool, cut into squares, and serve!

_____________________________________________________ An architect, an artist and a engineer were discussing whether it was better to spend time with the wife or a mistress. The architect said he enjoyed time with his wife, building a solid foundation for an enduring relationship. The artist said he enjoyed time with his mistress,because of the passion and mystery he found there. The engineer said, "I like both." "Both?" "Yeah. If you have a wife and a mistress, they will each assume you are spending time with the other woman, and you can go to the office and get some work done." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ >From Dotty AN ADVERTISEMENT in our local newspaper read: "Boyfriend wanted for female Siamese cat. Object: Kittens. Terms negotiable." Since I had a male Siamese, I called the party. The woman offered $ l0 an hour as a stud fee. I said, "You mean if it takes three hours, I'll get thirty dollars?" The woman answered, "Yes." Then I asked, "Suppose it takes six hours. Will I get sixty dollars?" After a long pause, the woman asked, "Just how old is your cat?" ____________________________________________________ My Parents had not been out together in quite some time. One Saturday, as Mom was finishing the dinner dishes, my father stepped up behind her and asked. "Would you like to go out, girl?" Not even turning around, my mother quickly replied, "Oh, yes, I'd love to!" They had a wonderful evening, and it wasn't until the end of the evening that Dad finally confessed that his question had actually been directed to the family dog, laying near Mom's feet on the kitchen floor. ____________________________________________________
