How to change watch batteries 
<B></B>




Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, June 8

It was time to replace the battery in my watch. That used to
be no problem. I used to just go to Walmart, buy the battery
and flirt the lady into changing it for me.

Well, times have changed. Watch batteries now are $6.27, and
there are signs there that the staff won't change the
batteries for you.

It's actually quite easy if you have good sight or a
magnifying glass or sheet. More in the tech support pits.

Have Fun!

As Hollings runs out of the room, deputies can be heard in the background shouting, “This is Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. We have a search warrant.” This is followed by a series of loud noises, which neighbors told Fox 30 were smoke grenades thrown into the house. Hollings was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of cocaine and possession of paraphernalia for the manufacture or delivery of drugs. Hollings has a long criminal history in Duval County, including previous drug charges, court and Jackson Sheriff’s Office records show. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Me Re: Change watch battery Dear Webby How to change a watch battery For many years I used to go to Walmart, buy a watch battery, and flirt the lady there to install it for me. Now they raised the price of watch batteries and have signs there that they won't install watch batteries. Well, that is a nuissance, but not really a big deal. Here is how you change a watch battery: You need a sharp small screwdriver, the old-fashioned flat balde type, and, depending on your eyesight, a magnifying glass or magnifying sheet. Lay the watch face down on the table or clamp it into a toy or craft vise. Take the screwdriver or a knife and pry up the back. You will be surprised how easily it comes up. Since usually your wrist presses it in, it does not have to be glued or screwed in. Once the back plate is off, you will see the battery. Check with the magnifying glass to read the number and compare with the one you bought. If they are the same, look for the + sign. If you see a + sign, then the new battery has to be in there the same way, with the + sign on top. Now take your little screwdriver or a tooth pick and lift out the old battery. Toss it, so that there is no chance of a mix- up. Now push in the new batter so that the + faces in the same direction. Finally, put the back plate back on, push it in as far as it goes, and check if it is on straight. If it is on straight, put a book on it and whack the book with a fist or elbow. Done. That's all there is to it. Have FUN! DearWebby
The preacher spent his whole sermon relating the evils of sin and how all men are sinners with no exceptions. At the end of the sermon he asked rhetorically, "Now does anyone here think they are without sin?" He had only to wait a few seconds before a man in one of the back pews stood up. The pastor asked the man who had the audacity to stand after such a fiery sermon, "Sir, do you really think you are completely without sin?" The man quickly answered, "No sir, I'm not standing up for myself, but for my wife's first husband."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Marigolds to Control Bugs on Your Tomato Plants By poehere [41 Posts, 50 Comments] The marigold flower is the best way to control bugs on your tomato plants. The roots of the flower control the bugs in the soil and the flower will protect your plants from bug infestation. When you plant your tomato plants in the ground, surround them with marigold flowers. The flowers are easily grown from seeds or you can gather your own seeds from the dried flowers. Once the flowers have died pick them and pull them apart. Inside each flower is a lot of grain. The flowers will self germinate. During heavy winds or rains the dead flowers will lose their seeds. The seeds are spread around the garden and will grow again. Therefore, its only necessary to buy one or two packages of marigold seeds for your garden. You can recover your flower seeds each year and store them in an air tight container in your refrigerator. This preserves the seeds for 8 months to 1 year.

He took the jeans into the dressing room, took off his old ones, cut the tags off the new ones, and left his old jeans and the tags from the new ones in the dressing room while he walked out of the store. He was arrested the next day. The new jeans were on sale for $9.92. His old jeans had $15 and a printed out letter to him that included his AOL address, in a pocket. ___________________________________________________
A bizarre street in New Zealand.
Margie received a bill from the hospital for her recent surgery, and was astonished to see a $900 fee for the anesthesiologist. She called his office to demand an explanation. "Is this some kind of mistake?" Margie asked when she got the doctor on the phone. "No, not at all," the doctor said calmly. "Well," said Margie, "that's awfully costly for knocking someone out." "Not at all," replied the doctor. "I knock you out for free. The 900 dollars is for bringing you back around."

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Roland for this one: I ain't much for shopping, Or for goin' into town Except at cattle-shipping time, I ain't too easily found. But the day came when I had to go - I left the kids with Ma. But 'fore I left, she asked me, "Would you pick me up a bra?" So without thinkin' I said, "Sure," How tough could that job be? An' I bent down and kissed her An' said, "I'll be back by three." Well, I done the things I needed, But I started to regret Ever offering to buy that thing - I worked me up a sweat I walked into the ladies shop My hat pulled over my eyes, I didn't want to take a chance On bein' recognized. I walked up to the sales clerk - I didn't hem or haw - I told that lady right straight out, "I'm here to buy a bra." >From behind I heard some snickers, So I turned around to see Every woman in that store Was a'gawkin' right at me! "What kind would you be looking for?" Well, I just scratched my head. I'd only seen one kind before, "Thought bras was bras," I said. She gave me a disgusted look, "Well sir, that's where you're wrong. Follow me," I heard her say, Like a dog, I tagged along. She took me down this alley Where bras was on display. I thought my jaw would hit the floor When I saw that lingerie. They had all these different styles That I'd never seen before I thought I'd go plumb crazy 'fore I left that women's store. They had bras you wear for eighteen hours And bras that cross your heart. There was bras that lift and separate, And that was just the start. They had bras that made you feel Like you ain't wearing one at all, And bras that you can train in When you start off when you're small. Well, I finally made my mind up - Picked a black and lacy one - I told the lady, "Bag it up," And figured I was done. But then she asked me for the size I didn't hesitate I knew that measurement by heart, "A six-and-seven-eighths." "Six and seven eighths you say? That really isn't right." "Oh, yes ma'am! I'm real positive - I measured them last night!" I thought that she'd go into shock, Musta took her by surprise When I told her that my wife's bust Was the same as my hat size. "That's what I used to measure with, I figured it was fair, But if I'm wrong, I'm sorry ma'am." This drew another stare. By now a crowd had gathered And they all was crackin' up When the lady asked to see my hat, To measure for the cup. When she finally had it figured, I gave the gal her pay. Then I turned to leave the store, Tipped my hat and said, "Good day." My wife had heard the story 'fore I ever made it home. She'd talked to fifteen women Who called her on the phone. She was still a-laughin' But by then I didn't care. Now she don't ask and I don't shop For women's underwear.
