"Excuse me," he said, "have you lost something?" "No," replied one of the doctors. "We're doing a big operation today, but we are rather low on anesthetics, so we need a good size rock." ______________________________________________________ Two brooms were hanging in the closet and after a while they got to know each other so well, they decided to get married. One broom was, of course, the bride broom and the other the groom broom. The bride broom looked very beautiful in her white dress. The groom broom was handsome and suave in his tuxedo. The wedding was lovely. After the wedding at the wedding dinner, the bride broom leaned over and said to the groom broom "I think I am going to have a little whisk broom!!!" "IMPOSSIBLE!!" said the groom broom. "We haven't even swept together!" ______________________________________________________ Mary was having a tough day and had stretched herself out on the couch to do a bit of what she thought to be well-deserved complaining and self-pitying. She moaned to her mom and brother, "Nobody loves me! The whole world hates me!" Her brother, busily occupied playing a game, hardly looked up and passed on this encouraging word: "That's not true, Mary. Not everybody hates you. Lots of people don't even know you yet." ______________________________________________________ Bit chilly?

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Nicholas Hipp, 19, Delray Beach, Floriduh Florida Teen Texts Mom to Grab Drugs From Car After Crash Officials say a teenager texted his mother from the back of an ambulance after he was injured in a crash, asking her to grab a drug-filled suitcase from the trunk of the car. An arrest report says a Delray Beach paramedic watched 19- year-old Nicholas Hipp type the words Monday and alerted police. They searched the car and found nearly 150 Alprazolam pills - commonly known as Xanax - and about a gram of marijuana. They also found a glass pipe and a scale. The Palm Beach Post reports Hipp told deputies he buys medication on the street because he doesn't agree with the pharmacy industry. He faces multiple drug charges and was ordered to stay away from nonprescription drugs and alcohol. An attorney wasn't listed on jail records. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Trevor Re: Back-up onto camera chips Dear Webby, I have followed your advice about backing up my spreadsheets onto camera chips for years, never any problem. I am surprised you mention that it would not work for email. Why is that? Trevor Dear Trevor If you have twenty odd years of email, you are obviously not using Outloook or Outlook Express. Those two would have suicided a few times in that period and zeroed the accumulated mail. However, with most other email programs you would still have not just all the mails, but also all the pictures. If some of your fans use Incredimail and litter childish gifs and cutesy little pictures, they amount to an awful lot of files over the years. Windows can only store about 50,000 of them per folder on a chip. That's it. All the jumping up and down and yelling and screaming about plenty of room on your $20 64 GIGAbyte chip won't do you any good. For email, or anything with more than 40,000 files per folder, you have to use an external hard drive, or slowly burn it onto a DVD, or even slower, trundle it up to a cloud. Just look for a good deal for 1 TeraByte external drives. Or smaller. 500 GB is plenty, but they are getting scarce. Then you can use Xcopy (in DOS, already on your machine) to selectively copy just those files, that have changed since the last back-up. That really speeds things up! Xcopy has been ported from UNIX and with it you can make Windows "Fault Tolerant". Normally Windows isn't. THat is why the military uses UNIX or Linux. For example, when you copy a bunch of files with Windows "copy", if it hits a snag on file #7 out of 27,456 files, it quits at #7. Usually without telling you. That seems to be OK for Microsoft, but is NOT good enough for me. With Xcopy you can get it to act as if it was on Linux or UNIX, and continue it's work. In my not so humble opinion, for backups that is extremely important. Have FUN! DearWebby
Trisha was busy giving the very patient clerk a difficult time. Nothing he produced was exactly what she wanted. In a fake fit of exasperation, Trisha screamed in annoyance: "Isn't there a smarter clerk to serve me?" "No," said the clerk. "When the smarter clerk saw you coming in the door, he ran and took an early lunch!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Ham and Broccoli Pockets By lalala... [787 Posts, 103 Comments] These delicious ham and broccoli pockets are easy to make. They can easily be made with your favorite fillings. They are a great alternative to store bought Hot Pockets. Total Time: 30 minutes Yield: 12 pockets Supplies: 2 pkg. prepared pizza dough 1 1/4 cup cooked ham, chopped small 1 cup broccoli florets, chopped small 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated 2 Tbsp milk 2 Tbsp water Steps: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Chop ham steak into small cubes. Rinse broccoli florets and chop into small pieces. Grate cheddar cheese. Combine all filling ingredients in large mixing bowl. Open can of pizza dough and unroll it onto a lightly floured cutting board. Using a knife, cut it into 6 sections. Place 1/3 cup filling mixture onto one side of each section of dough. Using your fingers brush all edges of each section of dough with water. Then carefully fold the dough over the filling and press the edges shut. Place the pockets onto a cookie sheet. Use your fingers to brush milk onto the top of each pocket. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm. Instead of grating expensive cheese, look for family packs of already grated cheese. You usually get more cheese by weight per dollar! Have FUN! DearWebby

____________________________________________________ The Santa Claus at the mall was very surprised when a young lady about twenty years old walked up and sat on his lap. Santa doesn't usually take requests from adults, but she smiled very nicely at him, so he asked her, "And what do you want for Christmas?" "Something for my mother," said the young lady. "Something for your mother? Well, that's very thoughtful of you," smiled Santa. "What do you want me to bring her?" Without blinking she replied, "A son-in-law!" ____________________________________________________
