The radiologist wanted to know what the patient was doing up a tree. "I'm not sure, but his paperwork states he works for Acme Tree Experts."

What is the best way to do it? Roger /i> Dear Roger With an upright case that is easier than you think. The bottom in it is usually free, with nothing in the way. Everything is attached to the side wall opposite to the wall, that opens. Take a drill with a small, 1/8" drill bit and drill a few holes into the bottom. Then line up the computer, so that you have full access to the back, where everything is plugged in and so that all cables can be plugged in. That might limit the locations! Once the location is satisfactory, use sheet-metal screws and screw the machine to the floor. They will widen the hole as necesary. Those screws are available with all kinds of heads, including tamper-proof. Have FUN! DearWebby
After the birth of their child, an Episcopal priest, wearing his clerical collar, visited his wife in the hospital. He greeted her with a long hug and a kiss, and gave her another hug and kiss when he left. Later, the wife's roommate commented, "Your pastor is sure a lot friendlier than mine!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Getting Rid of Ants in the Kitchen By anglophile [10 Comments] An exterminator said to put your used but unwashed jelly, jam and other sugar containing items outside near ant's access and they will clean those up and stay out of the house, works for us. I keep them hidden behind a decorative item. They will clean up those with regular sugar first and if desperate will clean out those with corn syrup. I have only had ants since if I forget to put the jars out in the spring. Saves the ants a long walk, lol. -------------- Other hints listed were to use Windex or Pledge.

A teacher was taking her first golf lesson. "Is the word spelled 'p-u-t' or 'p-u-t-t'?" she asked the instructor. "'P-u-t-t' is correct," he replied. "'P-u-t' means to place a thing where you want it. 'P-u-t-t' means a vain attempt to do the same thing."
