Is W7 really no longer secure? 




Good Morning, ,
Today is Wednesday, January 18

Pioneer Cabin Tree, the giant Sequoiatree with a tunnel
through it, has fallen.

The tree was probably about 3000 years old and still
showed signs of life, but powerful storms in the area
caused flooding that it could not withstand. The ground
got too soft for it's weight, including the huge amount
of water it had soaked up, it toppled over and shattered.

The tunnel through it had been carved in the 1800s.

I am glad I took my dad to see those giant sequoias when
he could still hike in rough terrain.


Here he is standing beside "General Sherman", which at
the time in 2002 was 275 feet tall and had a diameter of
36 feet at the base. 
Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Thomas Pinson, 21, St. Petersburg, Florida Florida man with mom's name tattooed on chest is arrested for battering her A Florida man who has his mother’s full name tattooed on his chest was arrested early Saturday for shoving the woman to the ground during a confrontation in their residence, cops report. Investigators allege that Thomas Pinson, 21, battered his mother Carmon, 47, around 3:45 AM Saturday. Pinson, police say, “grabbed his mother with two hands and shoved her backwards into a kitchen chair.” She then fell to ground “and hit her head as a result of being shoved,” a criminal complaint charges. Pinson, who fled his family’s St. Petersburg home before police arrived, was subsequently apprehended and charged with domestic battery, a misdemeanor. Pinson was released yesterday afternoon on his own recognizance from the Pinellas County jail. According to police and jail records, Pinson (seen above) has “Carmon Pinson” inked on his chest. Next to that tribute is a tattoo of a rose. Pinson’s rap sheet includes collars for marijuana possession, attempted robbery with a firearm, and grand theft auto. But he has only been convicted of the pot charge. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Is W7 not secure? Dear Webby, Today, I read concerns about W 7 being so outdated that patches can't keep it secure. These articles come from Kim Komando and ZD Net. What is your take on this? Thanks Bill Dear Bill Consider the source. Kim Kommando is a cute Microsoft shill, and ZD net makes Millions on ads for Microsoft and for new computers. Kim Kommando used to read exactly the same bullshit about XP. Same shit, different names. Many subscribers STILL use XP without a problem! Neither XP nor VISTA nor W7 nor W8 nor W10 are secure, no matter how many patches and bug fixes you put on them. You still need Malwarebytes to make them secure. If you want to paw your monitor like the kids pawing their phones while chasing a pokemon and running into telephone poles, then get W10. If that is not a priority, keep your money in your pocket and stick with W7. Many of it's bugs have been patched and it is running relatively smoothly these days. Have FUN! DearWebby
>Thanks to Dave for this one: A man walked into the Women's Department of Macy's in New York City. He tells the saleslady, "I would like a Jewish bra for my wife, size 34B." With a quizzical look the saleslady asked, "What kind of bra?" He repeated "A Jewish Bra - She said to tell you that she wanted a Jewish Bra, and that you would know what she wanted." "Ah, now I remember," said the saleslady. "We don't get as many requests for them as we used to. Mostly our customers lately want the Catholic bra, or the Salvation Army bra, or the Presbyterian type." Confused, and a little flustered, the man asked "Oy, what differences they are ?" The saleslady responded. "It is all really quite simple. The Catholic type supports the masses. The Salvation Army lifts up the fallen, and the Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright." He mused on that information for a minute, and asked "So, what is the Jewish type for?" "They," she replied, "make mountains out of molehills." -------------------------- And then there is the "Job Interview Bra".

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Homemade Sloppy Joes By lalala... [795 Posts, 103 Comments] I love it when my best friend comes over to make sloppy joes. I like the kind that uses tomato paste and a seasoning packet, but I love hers! :) Total Time: 30 minutes Yield: 8 sloppy joes Ingredients: 1 lb ground turkey 1 lb ground beef 1 1/2 cup ketchup 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce 1 1/2 tsp dry mustard 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 tsp garlic powder Steps: Brown meat in a skillet and drain off any liquid. Add ketchup, stir to combine. Then add Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Mix well. Stir in the garlic powder, adjust amount to taste. Allow to simmer on LOW for 5 minutes. Serve hot a hamburger bun. Best Sloppy Joe I ever had was at an "Original Tommy's" in Henderson, Nevada. Friends in California kept raving about Original Tommys, so I looked for one near my route. My friend Ann told me about one in Henderson, Nevada. It was the only one outside California at that time. My friends warned me to DEFINITELY NOT try to eat it in the car. OK, OK. So my dad and I went inside, ordered, and sat down by the window, that overlooked the drive- through lane. They brought our burgers, snugly wrapped in alu foil, with a stack of napkins and a box of fries. Stack of napkins? Yep. And a spoon. When I undid the foil, the burger exploded. On top of the patty was a big scoop of Sloppy Joe. I could hear snickering from behind the counter. One bite, and Sloppy Joe was squishing out on all sides. More snickering from behind the counter. Then I happened to glance out the window. A fancily dressed up lady in a silver Camaro with white fur upholstery just received a burger like the ones we got. Everything got deathly quiet in the restaurant as everybody held their breath. I was tempted to scream that she should NOT open it in the car. She did, holding it close to her face. When her Original Tommy exploded, and the hot Sloppy Joe ran down her chins and into her cleavage and down her dress, there was considerably more than just snickering from behind the counter and from all the diners. One lady positively howled. She must have tried it in the car at one time. Quite aside from the side show, they definitely had the best Sloppy Joe I had ever tasted. Have FUN! DerWebby

Scar covering tattoos and the stories behind them.
St. Peter and Satan were having an argument one day about baseball. Satan proposed a game to be played on neutral grounds between a select team from the heavenly host and his own hand-picked boys. "Very well," said the gatekeeper of Heaven. "But you realize, I hope, that we've got all the good players and the best coaches." "I know, and that's all right," Satan answered. "We've got all the umpires."
