Good Morning, ,
Today is Monday, April 3

We got a blizzard going on right now. Three inches of snow
and getting deeper. We are supposed to get our first rain of
the year on the weekend, almost an inch. That will wash away
the winter's dust.

Have FUN!

So, I called my bank and the operator asked me what Josh's last name was and I explained that he hadn't left his last name. When she asked for his department, I said that I didn't know. "There are 1500 employees in this building, Sir!," she told me rather sharply. So I asked her for her name. "Danielle," she said. "And your last name?" I asked. "Sorry," she replied, "we're not allowed to give last names." "Well, in that case," I replied, "tell the Josh with no last name and no department to send me an email." And hung up. ------------ Sounds like my bank used to be. Now they have some Taliban playing stupid and being useless. When they call me I tell them I can't hear them, and that they should send me an email. They never do. They always figure out their problem without my help. That seems to be easier than finding somebody, who knows how to send an email. ______________________________________________________ On a flight I was on, this elderly woman kept peering out the window. Since it was totally dark, all she could see was the wing tip light. Finally, she rang for the flight attendant. "I'm sorry to bother you," she said, "but I think you should inform the pilot that his left-turn indicator is on and has been for some time." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Billy-Bob and Bubba were driving a semi down a road when they came to an overpass. The sign said 10 feet zero inches, so they got out to measure their truck. Unfortunately, the truck was just over 12 feet high. They didn't know what to do, when finally Bubba looked in both directions and said, "I don't see any cops, let's go for it!" ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Basil Eleby, 39, Atlanta, Georgia Basil Eleby Charged With First-Degree Arson in Atlanta blaze The man accused of starting a massive fire that collapsed a crucial stretch of highway north of downtown Atlanta has been charged with arson. Basil Eleby, 39, was in court Saturday to face charges of first-degree arson and first-degree criminal damage to property in connection with the Thursday blaze, which caused an elevated portion of Interstate 85 to crumble. Eleby Has an Extensive Criminal History & Was Previously Arrested 19 Times Eleby, who remains in Fulton County Jail on a $200,000 bond, was arrested Friday along with Sophia Bruner and Barry Thomas, both of whom were charged with criminal trespass. "We believe they were together when the fire was set and Eleby is the one who set the fire," Jay Florence, deputy commissioner of the state Department of Insurance, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Investigators believe the trio may be homeless. The inferno broke out during rush hour Thursday, quickly devouring construction materials that had been stored underneath the overpass. At around 7 p.m. ET, the bridge gave way in a flaming heap that spewed thick, black smoke that could be seen from miles away. Russell R. McMurry, the commissioner of the Georgia Department of Transportation, said Friday the fire was started in an area used as a storage location for "surplus construction materials," such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) piping. McMurry said it would take several months to rebuild. "That is no small feat," he told reporters Friday, "but we're up to the challenge." The U.S. Department of Transportation has released $10 million in emergency release funds to the state to kick- start the rebuilding process. No one was injured in the bridge collapse, authorities said Friday. But the dramatic incident snarled traffic around one of the busiest stretches of roadway in America, and Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency for Fulton County. "This is about as serious a transportation crisis as we can imagine," Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said late Thursday as commuters scrambled to find new routes home. Officials have said more than 225,000 vehicles pass through the affected area on an average weekday. Authorities do not know how or why Eleby started the fire. Florence said details would be released as the investigation goes forward. Those overpasses are a semi-sanctioned suburb for the homeless, just like in many major cities. To get the homeless out of the business and residential areas, they are tolerated under the overpasses and not hassled there. The problem is that there is no garbage pick-up and a lot of flammable material accumulates. Eleby was observed setting a big, stuffed chair on fire, and that in turn set the stacks of PVC pipes on fire. It is not known yet whether Eleby had planned to use the chair to set the piping on fire, or whether he just wanted to burn the chair. Quite likely this incident will cause many major cities to reconsider allowing their overpasses to be used as sanctuary suburbs for the urban campers to keep them out of residential and commercial areas, and if they should conduct occasional clean-up and garbage pick-up in those areas. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Elvira Re: PDF editor Dear Webby On my last machine I used to have a nice PDF editor, but that is gone with that old hard drive. I wasted a day trying to find that one or one like it, but now they all are just phony crap, pretending to be free, but then demanding $60 or more if you want to actually use them. Plus, they are crap that I would not pay $5 for. All I need is something to fill out the occasional forms because my handwriting is getting a bit jittery. Isn't there a good alternative out there? Elvira Dear Elvira There sure is! Yes, all the PDF editors advertised as "Free Download" are indeed phony crap. And I agree, I would not pay $5 for any of them either, never mind $60 or $90 or even more. I use Nitro READER, and have for many years. It is not advertised, just word of mouth from friend to friend. Nitro READER is not just for reading or for form filling. I have even used it for converting ordinary huge docs docs to eBooks. Nitro also works the other way around. You can convert a PDF file to a Word document! You can get it at Nitro You can create PDFs from virtually any Windows application and from over 300 formats.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning Smoke Off Walls Kitchen fires, candles and other occurrences can leave smoke residue on your walls. This is a guide about cleaning smoke off walls. By likekinds [244 Posts, 1,143 Comments] I can tell you how I would do it. First, I would get a fan large enough to keep the area well ventilated, place it where it is most effective and turn it on. Next, I would fill a large, clean, empty spray bottle with household ammonia. Add nothing to the ammonia, certainly not bleach. Any type of cleanser added would just cause you to have to rinse and would not improve the effectiveness of the ammonia. With plenty of clean rags handy, start spraying the ammonia at the bottom most area of smoke damage. You will quickly learn just how much to spray and how many seconds to wait before wiping. It needs to stay on the wall 2-3 seconds, but not long enough to run down the wall. From this point, work your way up the wall, either rinsing your rag in clear water often or switching to an unused one. How much ammonia, time and labor is involved depends on the amount of damage. Other suggestions were to use Spray9 or Grease Lightning.

____________________________________________________ On a visit to Boston, I noticed a parking meter with a paper sack over it that said: "Broken." A skeptical parking officer removed the bag, inserted a quarter in the meter and turned the dial. It worked perfectly. As the officer began to write a parking ticket, the car's owner rushed out of a nearby building. "What are you doing?" he yelled after a quick glance at the meter and snapping a picture with his phone. "There's plenty of time left!" ___________________________________________________
