we will get some action going.

As they stopped at a cheese farm, a young guide led them through a process of cheese making, explaining that goats' milk was used. She showed the group a lively hillside where many goats were grazing. These, she explained, were the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produced. She then asked, "What do you do in America with your old goats?" A spry old gentleman answered, "They send us on bus tours." ______________________________________________________ >From Jewel from Down Under (where they have summer now) This guy was watching TV as his wife was out cutting the grass during the hot summer. He finally worked up the energy to go out and ask his wife what was for supper. Well, his missus was quite irritated about him sitting in the air conditioned house all day while she did all the work, so she scolded him. "I can't believe you're aking me about supper right now! Imagine I'm out of town, go inside and figure dinner out yourself." So he went back in the house and fixed himself a big steak, with potatoes, garlic bread and tall glass of iced tea. The wife finally walked in about the time he was finishing up and asked him, "You fixed something to eat? So where is mine?" "Huh? I thought you were out of town." The funeral will be on Saturday. ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ >Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joseph Talbot, 43, Newark, New York New York Business Executive Arrested for DWI, Buys All Local Newspapers to Hide It Joseph Talbot, 43, was arrested in Newark, New York (not New Jersey) recently for driving while intoxicated. According to local reports, Talbot refused to be photographed by police, refused to have his fingerprints taken, and would not give a breath sample. The reason? He didn’t want to end up in the local paper. Talbot is a vice president of Key Insurance and Benefits Services Inc., an arm of Key Bank, which would partially explain his desire to keep the arrest hidden. The more successful you are, the more these types of scandals can hurt. His efforts landed him a second-degree obstructing governmental administration charge on top of the DWI. Talbot refused to give up on his attempt to hide his arrest, however, and he went out the next day to buy up as many local papers as he could to hide the news. According to Ron Holdraker, the editor and owner of the Times of Wayne County, Talbot purchased over 900 copies. With Newark’s population sitting around 8,952, Talbot clearly believed that he had purchased enough copies to hide the news. Despite spending over $1000 to hide his arrest, Talbot is now being plastered all over the internet for his silly attempt. Maybe next time Talbot can save himself the time and money by just not driving while intoxicated. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Leesa Re: XP SP3 update onto an AMD Athlon machine Dear Webby, How goes it way up north in the "almost as cold as we are" country? Gets any colder here, I think we should just burrow into one of the many deep hard snow drifts, and spend the winter in hibernation. Have a question for you. Remember way back when microsoft first came out with the sp3 update for xp? At that time they said it would cause problems for amd athlon. Do you know if it was ever fixed so it could be run on amd? I so hate to give up my computer, but now can't get any updates because most seem to require sp3. I don't want to just install it then not be able to get it back out of there. I haven't had time to get all my backups done for 2016, and it may be a while before that gets done. You wise and intelligent answer would be appreciated. Stay warm. Stay safe. Havin' tons of fun now leesa dear leesa no gullible warming here either. I think I skipped sp3. There is no definite answer about it. Some say it is ok, some say it isn't. Since your machine works quite nicely without those "updates", why bother with them? Xp has been completely fixed years ago. There are no more bug fixes, just the odd security update. If you have malwarebytes, then don't worry about it. Have FUN! DearWebby
>From Susan: My friend Kimberly announced that she had started a diet to lose some pounds that she had put on recently. "Good," I exclaimed. "I'm ready to start a diet too! We can be dieting buddies and help each other out. When I get the urge to drive out and get a burger and fries, I'll call you first." "Great," she replied. "I'll ride with you. I'll pay for the ice cream on the way back!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Freezing Food Without a Vacuum Sealer By paulawill2 To freeze and vacuum seal foods, try this no cost vacuum sealer. Get a large enough bowl of water that will fit what you want to freeze. Zip package partway closed, leaving a small opening. Push out air. Slip baggy into the bowl of water until the opening is just above the surface of water. Gently squeeze out remaining air. Zip close. Dry with towel, place in freezer. Wala, a protection from air for your hard earned food!

____________________________________________________ From my archives, today in 2005 POSTED: 8:22 am EST January 7, 2005 PHILADELPHIA -- A Philadelphia fanatic is heading to federal prison. It took a jury less than two hours on Thursday to convict Allan Carlson, 41, of sending out thousands of e-mails blasting the management of the Philadelphia Phillies. He had listed sportswriters and team officials as the senders, so spam that bounced back went to them. As a result, people he named had their computers clogged with thousands of messages. A federal prosecutor says reporters weren't able to find their real e-mails in all the garbage. Carlson, who's been living with his parents in New Jersey, could get up to 41 months in federal prison. Only senators can get away with doing that. ____________________________________________________

An elderly gent was invited to his old friends' home for dinner one evening. He was impressed by the way his buddy addressed his wife with endearing terms-calling her Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, Pumpkin, etc. The couple had been married over 50 years, and they appeared still very clearly in love. While the wife was off in the kitchen, the man leaned over and said to his buddy, "I think it's wonderful that, after all the years you've been married, you still call your wife those loving pet names." The old man hung his head. "I have to tell you the truth, he said. "I forgot her name about ten years ago."
