My doctor's receptionist called me to the desk to update my personal file. Before I could tell her that all the infor- mation she had was still correct, she asked, "Has your birth date changed?" Here they ask you for the date of birth as a kind of password. If you don't know it, they tell you to get lost. ______________________________________________________ >From Dennis There are two kinds of home-repair projects: those too big to undertake yourself and those too small to bother with.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Colorado woman Robbed Bank While Babysitting Kids Rachel Einspahr, 28, Weld County, Colorado A Colorado woman is facing charges of robbery and child abuse after allegedly attempting to rob a bank while babysitting two kids. Rachel Einspahr, 28, was arrested Friday afternoon after police said she robbed the drive-through window of the Colorado East Bank & Trust in Severance. According to the release from the Weld County Sheriff’s Office, Einspahr passed a note to the teller through a vacuum tube stating that there was a man in her car who was threatening to harm her children if he didn’t get money. The note read, “Do not sound alarm, the man in the very back wants $100s and $50s … no dye packs or trackers … he has gun on my kids,” according to CBS Denver. Fearing lives were in danger, the teller gave the suspect $500, who drove off in a white Nissan SUV. After the robbery was reported, deputies secured the bank and canvased the area. A vehicle matching the teller’s description was discovered a short distance from the bank, according to the Coloradoan. Investigators interviewed Einspahr and her employer, and discovered she had been hired to babysit the two kids who had been in the back of the SUV used in the robbery, according to Coloradoan.com. The kids were unharmed during the robbery. Einspahr told police, “I can’t go back to jail,” according to the Denver Channel. At first, Einspahr maintained that an unknown man forced her to go to the bank and get money, but police said she eventually admitting planning the robbery. Her motive, according to police, was to use the money to pay $15,000 as part of a restitution/plea deal for previous offenses, according to the arrest affidavit. Einspahr has an open case in Evans for over 30 counts of forgery, ID theft and felony theft and a second open case in Larimer County on two counts of ID theft, according to the paperwork. Einspahr was charged with one count of robbery and two counts of child abuse. She remains behind bars at the Weld County Jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Marge RE: What are Double Extensions Dear Webby I do not understand what you mean by two extensions. Do you mean paper clips or forwards? Please explain. Thank you. Marge Dear Marge Sometimes people send you a mail that has a file attached. It could be a picture, music, accounting spreadsheet, ot it could be some malware like a virus or a worm. Each filename has an extension, like color coding, that tells the computer what to do with it. If the file "sunrise" is a picture, then probably the extension would be ".jpg" or ".gif" When your computer sees ".jpg" or ".gif" at the end of a file, it knows that it is a picture and it opens the file with a picture viewer or picture editor. If the extension is ".xls" or ".wb4" then Windows knows it is a spreadsheet file and opens it with the right program. Many viruses are hidden by giving them first a safe looking extension and then tackig a different one behind it. If you see for example a file like "backdoor.jpg.bat", then that file is not a picture, but is a program that installs a backdoor for hackers into your computer, and probably also sends itself to everybody in your Outlook or Outlook Express address book. Therefore, whenever you see more than one extension on a file, dump it fast and thoroughly. Good Luck!

They are like thin cookies crossed with crepes with a creamy filling. You can use a variety of fillings like cream cheese, ricotta, or sour cream. I went with yogurt. I can assure you when you take your first bite, you'll be absolutely addicted. These are great for any time of the day, and even make a fantastic dessert. Approximate Time: 5 minutes Yield: 2 wraps Ingredients: 2 medium flour tortillas 2 Tbsp yogurt (or cream cheese, ricotta, sour cream) 1 Tbsp jam 1/4 cup sugar 2 tsp cinnamon oil for frying Steps: Spread tortilla with yogurt. Add a thin layer of jam. Tightly wrap, removing any filling that oozes out the sides. Snickerdoodle WrapsSnickerdoodle Wraps Repeat. You can use a toothpick to secure the wrap. I like to dab a bit of yogurt on the end flap to seal. Works great. Mix together your cinnamon and sugar thoroughly. This will be for dipping after the frying process. Add a couple tablespoons of oil to a pan on high heat. Fry the wraps until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side. Snickerdoodle WrapsSnickerdoodle Wraps Drain on paper towels for 10 seconds. Roll the wraps in the cinnamon sugar. Snickerdoodle WrapsSnickerdoodle Wraps Check out these amazing layers! ______________________________________________________

"You've got to help me. I'm losing my memory, Doctor," he sobbed. "I once had a successful business, a wife, home and family; I was a respected member of the community. But all that's gone now. Since my memory began failing, I've lost the business - I couldn't remember my clients' names. My wife and children have left me, too; and why shouldn't they - some nights I wouldn't get home until four or five in the morning. I'd forget where I lived...And it's getting worse. Doctor - it's getting worse!" "This is not an unusual form of neurosis," the psychiatrist said soothingly. There are ways to deal with that, in a rigid sequence of events. The first one is for you to pay me in advance." "Anything, Doc. Here's my VISA." After that was taken care of, he asked the psychiatrist: "OK, now what is the second of those rigidly scheduled events?" The shrink hemmed and hawed a bit, then admitted: "Hmmm, I seem to have forgotten that. I'll have to read up on it. Now, what was it again that you wanted treated?" ____________________________________________________
