Difference between GIF and JPG 



Good Morning, ,

Today is Wednesday, February 10

I get all kinds of newspaper headline alerts, but
rarely read the details. 
Today I got:
Huffington Post (Democratic propaganda paper):
News Alert: Bernie Sanders wins New Hampshire primary!

no mention of Trump

Next issue:
News Alert: A racist, sexist, xenophobe just won New 
Hampshire Republican primary

Can't really get any more UNprofessional than that!
I have a hunch those bigots will get to eat those words
before this is over. 

Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ >From Noella Sayings of a Jewish Buddha If there is no self, whose arthritis is this? Be here now. Be someplace else later. Is that so complicated? Drink tea and nourish life; with the first sip, joy; with the second sip, satisfaction; with the third sip, peace; with the fourth, a Danish. Wherever you go, there you are. Your luggage is another story. Accept misfortune as a blessing. Do not wish for perfect health, or a life without problems. What would you talk about? The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single Oy. There is no escaping karma. In a previous life, you never called, you never wrote, you never visited. And whose fault was that? Zen is not easy. It takes effort to attain nothingness. And then what do you have? Bupkis. The Tao does not speak. The Tao does not blame. The Tao does not take sides. The Tao has no expectations. The Tao demands nothing of others. The Tao is not Jewish. Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out. Forget this and attaining Enlightenment will be the least of your problems. Let your mind be as a floating cloud. Let your stillness be as a wooded glen. And sit up straight. You'll never meet the Buddha with such rounded shoulders. Deep inside you are ten thousand flowers. Each flower blossoms ten thousand times. Each blossom has ten thousand petals. You might want to see a specialist. Be aware of your body. Be aware of your perceptions. Keep in mind that not every physical sensation is a symptom of a terminal illness.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Amanda Eggert Jason_Roth, Balsam Lake, Wisconsin. Wisconsin couple arrested after they got their 9 year old daughter to drive them, because they were too drunk. Wisconsin couple is facing felony charges after they were caught making their nine-year-old drive their pickup after they were too drunk to drive themselves home. A Wisconsin mom and her boyfriend are facing felony charges for allowing her nine-year-old daughter drive them home in their pickup truck after they appeared too drunk to drive. Jason Roth and Amanda Eggert pled not guilty Friday to a number of felony charges including child neglect and second degree recklessly endangering safety. The couple was arrested about a week ago after authorities say they took a 911 complaint about erratic driving on rural Wisconsin roads. By the time law enforcement caught up to Eggert and Roth’s truck after it had pulled into a public boat launch along the Apple River in Polk County. Deputy Jeff Hahn told the court he was stunned when he realized driver was nine years old and that the couple’s 11-month-old baby was strapped into a car seat. “As the nine-year-old exited the truck, it was still running and in drive when Mr. Roth was sitting in the truck by himself,” Hahn testified in court. “He turned the ignition off and the truck began rolling backwards down the hill towards the river. I jumped into the truck to hit the brakes and put the truck in park.” Hahn said both adults appeared highly intoxicated, with one of Roth’s preliminary breath tests coming back at .25, more than three times the legal limit to drive. The nine-year-old allegedly drove the truck for many miles, weaving in and out of traffic. Fortunately, there were no accidents and no one was hurt. The two young children are now staying with extended family as Eggert and Roth remain jailed. Both their cases are now headed towards trial. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Fran Re: Difference between GIF and JPG Dear Webby Ok, so what's the big diff between GIF and JPG ? Fran Dear Fran GIF files are limited to a maximum of 256 colors. Once they have been reduced to that number of colors, they can be edited and saved as often as you want without deteriorating any further. However, watch that initial reduction in color depth. It CAN do terrible things to a picture unless it is done carefully. JPG files can have 16 - 24 Million colors and they can be compressed. However, the compression scheme is a "Lossy Compression". That means pixels are thrown away, for good. The higher compression ratio you choose, and the more often you save the file, the more washed out the picture looks. Neither GIF nor JPG are suitable for working on a picture. Always work on pictrues in PNG or PSP or PSD format, and then later, when all work is finished and the picture is perfect, and no more editing to be done on it, THEN save it in GIF or JPG for use on the Internet. GIF pictures can be animated, and with the right software you can save short movies in GIF format. If you resize that or accidentally save it in JPG format, the animation is lost. Have FUN!

I wanted to hang it over the top of my cupboard next to the stove for hot pads and towels. But, I have the kind of cupboards that are not square on top. The hooks fell forward too far and rattled each time I opened them. I found it worked great on the oven door. I made a couple hot pads and crocheted a chain to keep the towel on the door so you could see the affect. I think it works great. This tip might help you, too.

_____________________________________________________ An elderly couple who used to be childhood sweethearts had met again, got married and settled down in their old neighborhood. For old times sake, they walk down the street to their old school. There, they hold hands as they find the old desk they'd shared and where he had carved "I love you, Sally", and on the way home they stop and smooch in the alley just like they used to 60 years ago. While they are busy with that, a bag of money falls out of an armored car practically at their feet. She quickly picks it up, but they don't know what to do with it, so they take it home. There, she counts the money, and it's fifty thousand dollars. The husband says, "We've got to give it back." She says, "Finders keepers." And she puts the money back in the bag and hides it up in their attic. The next day, two FBI men are going door-to-door in the neighborhood looking for the money and show up at their home. They say, "Pardon me, but did either of you find any money that fell out of an armored car yesterday?" She says, "No." The husband says, "She's lying. She hid it up in the attic." She says, "Don't believe him, he's getting senile." But the agents sit the man down and begin to question him. One says, "Tell us the story from the beginning." The old man says, "Well, when Sally and I were smooching in the warehouse alley on the way home from school..." The FBI guy looks at his partner and says, "Let's get out of here." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ >From Hilde Two men came to my house to install some new floor covering in the kitchen. Once they had moved the stove and refrigerator out of the way, it was not long before the job was done. As they were getting ready to leave, I asked them to put the heavy appliances back in place. The two men demanded $45 for this service, stating it was not in their contract. I really had no choice but to pay them. As soon as they left, however, the doorbell rang. It was the two men. They asked me to move my car, which was blocking their van. I told them my minimum fee for moving vehicles: $90. $15 extra if it was a rush job. ____________________________________________________ Bobby tells his foreman: "Boss, my wife's mother is moving, again. And I am supposed to help and move her 10 tons of silly antiques to some other top floor apartment. And as usual, it's on short notice. Tomorrow." "Well, Bobby,....", the foreman answred, " ..we're rather shorthanded these days and I can't give you a day off right now. And I'll be needing the company truck for work tomorrow." "Thanks, Boss!", Bobby beamed, "I knew I could count on you!" ____________________________________________________
