 As a Contract furniture specialist with 30 years experience, 
I'd like to add a few comments on your answer regarding clear 
chair mats over carpet. 
don't buy the cheap thin ones -they will curl at the edges and 
create a trip hazard, plus they will develop indents where the 
casters sit for long periods of time and make it difficult to 
roll around
also, if you have a desk chair with carpet casters (which are hard), 
you will need to switch to soft casters made for hard surfaces. 
Why" if not when you go to get up or sit in your chair, the chair 
will skate away fast and you could fall and break a bone.
make sure the mat is sized correctly to the space going under the 
desk and wide enough so the casters are not half on and half off 
the mat. good mats can be custom made in a variety of shapes
lastly get the mat with the spikes to prevent the mat from moving 
around
Good Luck
Richie

______________________________________________________ "How was your golf game, dear?" asked Jack's wife Tracy. "Well, I was hitting pretty well, but my eyesight's gotten so bad I couldn't see where the ball went." "But you're seventy-five years old, Jack!" admonished his wife, "Why don't you take my brother Scott along?" "But he's eighty-five and doesn't even play golf anymore," protested Jack. "But he's got perfect eyesight. He could watch your ball," Tracy pointed out. The next day Jack teed off with Scott looking on. Jack swung, and the ball disappeared down the middle of the fairway. "Do you see it?" asked Jack. "Yup," Scott answered. "Well, where is it?" yelled Jack, peering off into the distance. "Where is what ?", Scott answered. "My ball! My golf ball!" "Oh, I don't know. I was watching that cute lady over there. Her ball went into the water." ______________________________________________________ From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Todd Casey, 49, Michael Probst, 36, Tampa, Floriduh Florida drunk arrrested after he drove into parked patrol car while deputy makes different DUI arrest A drunk crashed into a patrol car while a sheriff’s deputy was making an arrest in another DUI case. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release the incident happened Sunday night. Deputies were arresting 36-year-old Michael Probst around 10:30 p.m. when another car side-swiped the patrol car. The driver didn’t stop but deputies eventually caught up with him. Michael Probst, 36, was being arrested when the crash occured. Deputies arrested 49-year-old Todd M. Casey shortly afterward. An incident report says Casey had alcohol on his breath, red and glassy eyes and slurred speech. He provided breath samples of .181 and .196. Drivers in Florida are considered impaired at .08. He is charged with DUI with property damage and was cited for not moving over when passing an emergency vehicle. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Felix Re: Camera view monitor is useless in sunshine Dear Webby I did all the homework and research on digital cameras and because I often work in marginal light conditions, I got a big and heavy and clunky Sony. It takes great pictures, but the LCD view finder is totally useless in bright light outdoors. The optical viewfinder on the side is just as bad on clear sunny days. I still love the camera, but I need to find a solution to those problems! Felix Dear Felix That problem has existed a lot longer than digital cameras. The solution is still the same as 150 years ago. Find some black satin and cut a one meter by one meter (3' x 3') square out of it and use that to cover your head and the camera when working in bright sunlight. Satin blocks the light quite well and folds up a lot smaller than any other cloth. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ A young man called his mother and announced excitedly that he had just met the woman of his dreams. Now what should he do? His mother had an idea: "Why don't you send her a card, and on the card invite her to your apartment for a home-cooked meal?" He thought this was a great strategy, and a week later, the woman came to dinner. His mother called the next day to see how things had gone. "I was totally humiliated," he moaned. "She insisted on washing the dishes." "What's wrong with that?" asked his mother. "We hadn't started eating yet." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Potato Tahdig (Crispy Potato Cake) Tahdig is a traditional savoury Persian treat. What started as the crispy crust that got stuck to the bottom of your pan has rapidly become the most sought-after part of the meal. I like to eat it with stews. I learned how to make it from my mother, who learned how to make it from her mother in law, who was an amazing cook, God rest her soul. :) Approximate Time: 35 minutes Yield: 4 servings Ingredients: 3 medium potatoes 3 Tbsp oil 1 inch of carrot, sliced into flower shapes a few sprigs of Italian parsley Steps: Slice potatoes, about 3mm thick. Add oil to cold pan. Arrange carrots and parsley. Add sliced potatoes, slightly overlapping, in a circular way, spiraling around the pan then stacking up evenly. Add 3 tablespoons of water to pan, turn on heat to medium. Cover with lid, and cook about 5 minutes or until it starts to steam. When you see the steam, add a paper towel between the pan and the lid in order to catch the steam. Reduce heat to low, cook about 20-25 minutes. Do a taste/texture check to see if the potatoes on the top are cooked. When they are, raise the heat to medium for 1 minute to make the bottom super crunchy. Remove from heat. Put the lidded pan on a cold wet towel. This helps release tahdig nicely from the bottom of the pan. The same way you would flip a cake, put a plate over the pan and flip over quickly. Enjoy your yummy and pretty potato creation! *You could also add parboiled rice to a thin layer of potato from the beginning to make more of a rice cake.

_____________________________________________________ Three pastors from different congregations were having lunch and sharing experiences and ideas to help each other out with their different fellowships. After several minutes of animated conversation, the first one remarks, "Hey, you know, we've got a serious problem at our church that I want to discuss with you guys." The other two pastors nod and he goes on, "Well, it's bats. We can't seem to get these bats out of our attic. The singing and organ playing wake them up, and they start flapping around. Then when I start to preach, we can still hear them moving around up there and it's really hard for anyone to pay any attention. The kids start to cry and, well, it's starting to really get in the way of a good church service." The second pastor says "Well that's interesting, because we've had the same problem, they won't stay out of our belfry. We've tried ringing the bells at all hours, spraying chemicals, we've even had a couple of exterminator companies out. Nothing's worked yet." He throws up his hands in exasperation and shakes his head. The third pastor smiles and nods his head knowingly. "Well, gentlemen. We had that problem a few years ago, and we found a quick solution." he says. The other two pastors look up with hope on their faces, and he goes on, "It was easy. We went up there, got to know 'em a little bit, got 'em baptized and started passing the collection plate to them. Haven't seen 'em since." ___________________________________________________

The distributor noticed that the previous bill hadn't been paid. The collections manager left a voice- mail for them saying, "We can't ship your new order until you pay for the last one." The next day the collections manager received a collect phone call, "Please cancel the order. We can't wait that long." ____________________________________________________ Dave was talking to his buddy, John, about his love life. "So, John, how's it going with the ladies?" "Women, to me, are nothing but sex objects." "Really?" "Yep," John shook his head sadly, "Whenever I mention sex, they object." ____________________________________________________
