______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Sarah Gable, 52, Delaware Country, Pennsylvania Daycare worker pushes 4 year old girl to fall down the stairs, then she sees the new security camera. Sarah Gable had been an employee of Childcare of the Future in Delaware Country, Pennsylvania for about a year. Before that, the 52-year-old had a long career, working at least 25 years in childcare. However, as ABC 6 reports, she was fired from her latest job on March 3. Shawayne Tavares, the daycare's administrator, was monitoring the center's newly installed security camera when she watched Gable push four-year-old Alayah Humphrey down the steps. The video shows Gable walking down the steps to help Humphrey back on her feet, before looking directly into the camera. The security camera had just been installed before the incident took place. Tavares told CBS Philly that as soon as she saw the incident occur, she confronted Gable: “I said, ‘What are you doing? We don’t do this to children.’” Once the police were notified, Gable was fired, arrested and charged with simple assault and child endangerment. Neither Gable nor her attorney have commented on the incident. She was released from jail on a $25,000 secured bond. A motive as to why she pushed Humphrey down the stairs is not yet known. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Corey Re: GIF versus JPG Dear Webby What's better, GIF or JPG ? JPG pictures look a lot better, but now I was told to always make all catalog pictures in GIF format. What is the reason for that? Corey /i> GIF has a color depth of 256. Believe it or not, at one time that was drool-slobber far out, compared to 16 colors. JPG can show up to 16 MILLION colors, and JPG pictures can easily be compressed. If you don't compress them too much, JPG pictures look nicer. However, the compression is "lossy" and can not be reversed. Every time you save an edit, you wash out more color depth and eventually wind up with a washed out and very bland picture. In addition to that, JPG pictures grow coronas and accumulate fuzz. Never edit in JPG format. Use PSP or PNG format for editing, and save to JPG format just before uploading. Oldfashioned GIF does have several advantages. One is that GIF pictures don't degrade. Another is that you can use transparent sections that are reliably transparent on all browsers and all viewers. And you can make animations that work predictably. The reason that GIF is the favorite for catalog makers is because of the ability to make transparencies. You can make the background transparent and the item appear to float on the page. Have FUN!

Someone in our neighborhood put a huge sofa out by the curb for trash collection. Since it was in good shape, many motorists slowed down for a look. But when they saw how enormous it was, they'd leave. Eventually a compact car pulled up, and two men got out. "This I've got to see," I thought. They removed the cushions, turned the sofa upside down, and shook it hard. Then they picked up all the coins that tumbled out and drove off.

____________________________________________________ A few women were sitting around the table talking, and the subject turned to their husbands. One lady said, "My husband just won't go to church with me, I think he's going to go to Hell." This led to talk around the table and it was generally agreed that, for one reason or another, all the husbands were going to end up in Hell. So, then the housewives started speculating about themselves. One woman said, "I try to be good - I'm sure I'll make it to Heaven." Another one said "No, I did this bad thing, I won't make it unless I mend my ways, I better start soon." At this point they noticed that one of the ladies (the only single women in the group, and a blonde, mind you) wasn't saying anything. They turned to her and said, "You're such a nice lady, surely you'll be going to Heaven?" She says, "No way! In fact, first thing in the morning, I'm going to buy me a ticket straight to Hell!" They were shocked and asked, "Why??" "Well, you don't expect me to live in a world without men, do you??!?" ___________________________________________________

A little boy was afraid of the dark. One night his mother told him to go out to the back porch and bring her the broom. The little boy turned to his mother and said, "Mama, I don't want to go out there. It's dark." The mother smiled reassuringly at her son. "You don't have to be afraid of the dark," she explained. "Jesus is out there. He'll look after you and protect you." The little boy looked at his mother real hard and asked, "Are you sure he's out there?" "Yes, I'm sure. He is everywhere, and he is always ready to help you when you need him," she said. The little boy thought about that for a minute and then went to the back door and cracked it a little. Peering out into the darkness, he called, "Jesus? If you're out there, would you please hand me the broom?"
