How to get rid of streaks on monitor 




Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, January 12

Today I have to go to Calgary again for Lucentis injections
through my eyeballs to the Macular, the platform behind the 
retina. That means nothing gets sent out on Friday,
Saturday or Sunday. And NO mail gets answered on those days.

Fantastic moon and stars out tonight. Skies are clear and
the stars are bright and close. 


A friend introduced me to a book, that she just finished
writing and put onto Amazon: Burnout to Bliss. $1.99
So I thought that would be a good excuse to learn about
Kindle. A quick download and install and my computer was a
free Kindle reader. That was slick!

The book came down just as fast. Reading with that PC Kindle
took some getting used to. No scrolling to read at the
center of the monitor! Each tap of the up or down arrow
flips a page, same as trying to scroll with the mouse.
Once I got the hang of that, it was great!

The Burnout book was great too. I read it non-stop. Have not
done that for decades! Highly recommended! With demand,
Amazon will raise the price, so buy it while it is still
low priced. 

Have FUN!

That left it pretty wide open, so he told the Doc that he found it real strange how his suit must've shrunk just sittin' in his closet, because it didn't fit when he went to get ready for a wedding recently. The Doc said, "Suits don't shrink just sittin' there. You probably just put on a few pounds, Matt." "That's just it, Doc, I know I haven't gained a single pound since the last time I wore it." "Well, then," said Doc, "You must have a case of Furniture Disease." "What in the world is Furniture Disease?" Matt asked.

A group of Christians from a local church were concerned and planned an all-night prayer meeting to ask God to intervene. It just so happened that shortly thereafter lightning struck the bar and it burned to the ground. The owner of the bar sued the church, claiming that the prayers of the congregation were responsible, but the church hired a lawyer to argue in court that they were not responsible. The presiding judge, after his initial review of the case, stated that "no matter how this case comes out, one thing is clear. The tavern owner believes in the power of prayer and the Christians do not." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Noella for this picture: bark in the park ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Christopher Bowyer, 32, Christopher Myatt, 20, Cheadle, Stockport, England Dumb crooks risk blowing themselves up in £25,000 ATM raid then get caught by trail of bank notes A pair of bungling crooks who blew up a cash machine were caught after they left a trail of banknotes leading to their hideout. Christopher Bowyer, 32, and Christopher Myatt, 20, risked killing themselves and those nearby when they used gas to blow up an ATM on a petrol station forecourt in Cheadle, Stockport. After scooping £25,000 from the mangled dispenser at the BP Garage on Stockport Road, in Manchester, the pair drove off in a getaway car. But Manchester’s Minshull Street Crown Court heard how the pair left £2,500 of notes scattered around the area and a trail of cash in the direction they had made off. Police who raced to the scene were quickly able to trace the getaway vehicle with the help of the force helicopter, reports Manchester Evening News. Prosecutor David Bentley told the court how the crooks were found hiding on the M56 gantry at the Wythenshawe junction and an officer was forced to save one of them when they were unable to come down. He added Myatt, in particular, was unable to budge from his perched position, fearing he was ‘going to fall’ to the motorway below. Mr Bentley added: “The officer then grabbed his clothing and dragged him to a safe area.” The court heard how the two had plotted to pump explosive gas into the ATM - a type of crime which has swept the region in recent years. Bowyer, of Woodsend Crescent Road, Urmston, and Myatt, of Wastdale Road, Wythenshawe, drove to the forecourt shortly before 2am on January 11 this year and blew up the cash machine, sending notes flying into the air. After being caught, Myatt’s mobile phone was checked by police and there were images of the forecourt as well as internet searches for gas used in the explosion. His blood was also found on the cash machine itself and glass fragments were found in his shoe. Bowyer was said to be the brains behind the plot - but said he didn’t physically get out to pump the gas or pick up the cash. The pair had previously pleaded guilty to causing an explosion likely to endanger life, and theft. Jailing Bowyer for eight years, and Myatt for seven and a half years, Judge Leslie Hull, said he hoped the sentences would deter others doing the same thing. He said the plot could have endangered lives given its location to residential areas and being so close to highly combustible substances. He added: “The risk of putting other people’s lives on the line was a risk which both of you were willing to take.” ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lynn Re: Monitor streaks Dear Webby, What's the best way to clean a monitor? Mine shows streaks within a day or so of cleaning. Thanks Lynn Dear Trish First, turn the monitor off for five minutes. You can leave the computer running, but turn the monitor off and ignore it for five minutes. Next, vacuum the entire monitor, but especially the screen, even if you can't see any dust on it. The dust is in the invisible little craters etched into the surface to make it less reflective. Then put an old towel below the front of the screen and sponge wipe the screen with plenty of window cleaner or vinegar. Vacuum the screen dry. Repeat that a few times. Spray window cleaner onto the screen and wipe it off with micro fiber cloth or an old tee-shirt. Leave the drip towel in place because usually after a while all the excess liquid that seeped into the case will drip out somewhere. Let it completely dry for at least 15 minutes, then give it a very light spray of a good quality furniture polish and gently wipe it with paper towel or Kleenex. That will repell dust and keep it nice and shiny. It will be a bit more reflective, but not streaky. Have FUN! DearWebby
During a county-wide drive to round up all unlicensed dogs, a patrolman signaled a car to pull over to the curb. When Bubba asked why he had been stopped, the officer pointed to the big dog sitting on the seat beside him. "Does your dog have a license?" he asked. "No way," Bubba said, "Ol' Blue don't need none. I always do the drivin' these days. He gets way too many speeding tickets and started biting cops!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Clearing Potato Peelings From Disposal By momof3boys [1 Post] After deciding to send potato peelings and carrot peelings down the drain, I immediately regretted it. They had gone past the disposal, but had clogged the pipe. I was home alone with 2 kids under 3. I happened upon this post and saw the baking soda and vinegar as well as a plunger tip. So I took the plunge. I plunged the sink a couple times and got the clog loose. Then for good measure I did the baking soda with vinegar, let it sit while a kettle of water boiled. Then poured that down. Works like a charm! As soon as I tell my husband, he is sure to say "I told you so" about the peelings going down the drain. But I fixed it myself. You live, you learn.

____________________________________________________ >From Brenda A car with Massachusetts license plates drove up to the Canadian customs booth I was manning. When I asked the driver his name, he looked at me strangely and asked, "How much?" I repeated my question, and this time he answered. But when proceeded to question him further, he told me he just wanted to pay the toll and go. "You're not at a tollbooth, sir," I patiently explained. "This is Canadian customs." The man paled. He had left Boston six hours earlier . . . headed for New York City. ____________________________________________________
