Later that morning he went out and came back with a small sign that read, "I'm the Boss". He taped it to his office door. Later that day when he returned from lunch, he found that someone had taped a note to the sign that said.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Bernardo Calana, 53, Haverhill, Massachusetts Man wore Home Depot apron to steal air conditioners Police say a man donned an orange Home Depot apron and posed as an employee to steal air conditioners in New Hampshire. But a manager noticed the name on the garment didn’t match that of any worker at the store. Police arrested 53-year-old Bernardo Calana, of Haverhill, Massachusetts, on Saturday. WMUR-TV reports Calana loaded two air conditions into his pickup truck in Plaistow and went back inside. A manager noticed the apron with the name “Shannon” with flowers drawn on it and called police. Calana later told police he didn’t know anything about the air conditioners, but a Home Depot apron was found in his back pocket. Calana was released on bail. The voice mailbox for a listed phone number for him was full. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lupita Re: Hex numbers for colors Dear Webby how do I get those hex numbers for colors on web pages, when I need a color that is in between colors that have proper names? Thanks Lupita Dear Lupita Ther are a few programs that will do that. The one I have been using for about 20 years is called colour.exe. You can download it from http://webby.com/tools.html and save it right onto the desktop. It is a very small program, but works 100% reliably and has no unnecesary confusion. It is free. Have FUN!

A little boy got lost at the YMCA and wandered in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, "What's the matter? Haven't you ever seen a little boy before?"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Hairy Monster Paperclip Bookmarks By ShirleyE [170 Posts, 107 Comments] Supplies: paper clips cord or yarn in different colours scissors strong glue small wiggle eyes Steps: Cut some cord into short lengths about 2 to 3 inches long. Fold them in half. Pass the loop end through a paper clip. Pass the cut ends through the loop and pull tight. Repeat twice more and trim with scissors. Glue the wiggle eyes in place. You can use pva glue for this, but it will take a long time to dry and won't hold for very long. A strong quick drying glue will work better. Try different hairstyles. Wait until the glue is properly dry before using to mark a page. You don't want to be sticking the pages together.
Some leftover yarn or wool pieces will keep visiting kids busy on a rainy aafternoon. A flexible rubber type glue works best and the collateral mess is easy to clean up. Have FUN! DearWebby

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee." The husband said, " You are in charge of the cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee." Wife replied, "No you should do it, and besides it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee." Husband replied, " I can't believe that, show me." So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and shows him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says "HEBREWS"
