Is a TO address required? 




Good Morning, ,
Today is Tuesday, October 3

We had snow storm in the morning and early afternoon.
Then it cleared up, but the icy wind stayed.
Now it is clear with a beautiful nearly full moon,
with the snow and ice crunching noisily underfoot.
Definitely hood-up time, and even that way, not 
cozy in the icy wind. 
Apparently the Gullible Warming has gone to where 
they believe in it.

Have Fun!

The talk naturally got around to their respective love lives. Marcy confided that there really wasn't anyone special in her life. Heather, on the other hand, was beaming about the new man she had found. "He's perfect. He's handsome, and last night when we went out to dinner, he said the four little words I've been waiting to hear a man say to me!" "He said 'will you marry me'?" Marcy asked. Heather replied, "No, he said 'We'll use my card`!" _____________________________________________________ From 2006 Thanks to Ed for this interesting tidbit: Subject: ENRON - US PRESIDENT -"BUDDIES" Which AMERICAN President? How Enron Worked the President This is an interesting bit of information that you don't hear much about. A. Enron's chairman did meet with the president and the vice-president in the Oval Office. B. Enron gave $420,000 to the president's party over three years. C. It donated $100,000 to the president's inauguration festivities. D. The Enron chairman stayed at the White House 11 times. E. The corporation had access to the administration at its highest level and even enlisted the Commerce and State Departments to grease deals for it. F. The taxpayer-supported Export-Import Bank subsidized Enron for more than $600 million in just one transaction. BUT... the president under whom all this happened WASN'T George W. Bush. SURPRISE ......... It was was the speaker for Hilary Clinton, some guy namend Bill Clinton ! _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Jerry for this story: Ever mindful of the congregation, the Baptist preacher and his wife decided to get a new dog, and knew that the dog also had to be a Baptist. They visited kennel after kennel and explained their needs. Finally, they found a kennel whose owner assured them he had just the dog they wanted. The owner brought the dog to meet the pastor and his wife. "Fetch the Bible," he commanded. The dog bounded to the bookshelf, scrutinized the books, located the Bible, and brought it to the owner. "Now find Psalm 23," he commanded. The dog dropped the Bible to the floor, and showing marvelous dexterity with his paws, leafed through and finding the correct passage, pointed to it with his paw. The pastor and his wife were very impressed and purchased the dog. That evening, a group of church members came to visit. The pastor and his wife began to show off the dog, having him locate several Bible verses. The visitors were very impressed. One man asked, "Can he do regular dog tricks, too?" "I haven't tried yet," the pastor replied. He pointed his finger at the dog. "HEEL!" the pastor commanded. The dog immediately jumped on a chair, placed one paw on the pastor's forehead and began to howl. The pastor looked at his wife in shock and said, "Good Lord! He's "PENTECOSTAL!" ______________________________________________________ Mitchell Falls, AU _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD AND a DARWIN AWARD has been earned by Stephen Paddock, 64, Mesquite, Nevada Las Vegas monster was a very wealthy retired accountant with no violent history He was divorced, was not known to have children, and was living with a woman in a home in Mesquite. At the time of his rampage, she apparently was in the Phillippines. His father was a bank robber, his brother Eric Paddock said. The FBI lists the late Benjamin Hoskins Paddock as being on the FBI's most-wanted list from June 10, 1969 until May 5, 1977. The father escaped from prison in 1969 and lived on the run until 1978, when he was arrested in Oregon, the Eugene Register-Guard reported at the time. Eric Paddock said his father died a few years ago and that "he was never with my mom." Eric said he was born while his father was on the run. Stephen last communicated with his brother via a text, Eric said, asking about their mother, who'd lost power during Hurricane Irma. Eric also said Stephen spoke to his mother on the phone a week or two ago. Eric Paddock says his brother did not have affiliations with any terror or hate group, and that he doesn't know why his brother would do this. "He was a wealthy guy playing video poker ... on cruises," his brother said, adding that Stephen could afford anything he wanted and played $100-a-hand poker. Eric Paddock said his brother owned apartments and houses. Marilou Danley was identified as Paddock's companion or roommate, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said. She does not appear to have been involved in the shooting and was in the Philippines when the massacre took place, authorities said. Paddock had been using some of her identification, Lombardo said. Paddock had been staying at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas since last Thursday. He killed himself in his room on the 32nd-floor before a police SWAT team burst in to ask him what the hell he was doing and why, Lombardo said. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Cookie Re: Address in the TO line Dear Webby, I have a question about email. I always send email from the 'To:' with my own address in there and then all copies to others go in the 'Bcc:' . My question is does there always have to be and address in the 'To:' area, or is it ok to send it with all addresses in the 'Bcc:' and leave the other blank? Would it cause a problem? Thanks for all of your help and humor over the years! I so look forward to your letter apprearing everyday in my email....keep up the great work, and stay healthy and happy. Luv, Cookie Dear Cookie Most email programs require that you have something in the "TO:" line. However, even if you can get away with leaving the "TO:" line blank, that would just make you look like an amateur spammer. Better put some address into the "TO:" line. Have FUN! DearWebby

A Japanese tourist hailed a taxi in downtown Chicago and asked to be taken out to O'Hare Airport. On the way, a car zoomed by and the tourist responded, "Ohhh!!! TOYOTA!!! Made in Japan!!! Very fast!!!" Not too long after, another car flew by the taxi. "Ohh!!! NISSAN!!! Made in Japan!!! Very fast!!!" Yet another zipped by, "Ohh!!! Mitsubishi!!! Made in Japan!!! Very fast!!!" The taxi driver, complete 100% American, was starting to get a little miffed that the Japanese made cars were passing his Chevy, when yet another car passed the taxi right as they were turning into the airport. "Ohh!!! Honda!!! Made in Japan!!! Very fast!!!" The taxi driver stopped the car, pointed to the meter, and said, "that'll be $150." "$150? It was so short a ride! Why so much?" "Taxi Meter. Made in Japan. Very fast."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Coffee Grounds In The Garden By coville123 [379 Posts, 441 Comments] The next time you have coffee grounds, dump them in the garden. They will keep slugs and other pests away. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com Coffee grounds are NOT fertilizer or compost! Quite the opposite! You might as well use sawdust or gravel. I toss coffee grounds onto the path between rows of raspberries. It really stunts the weeds and grasses! Beats having to mow between the rows. Have FUN!

Getting annoyed, he scolded, "Madison! Stop that!" "But, Daddy," she replied, "I'm just trying to get my gum back." __________________________________________________

An older gent had an appointment to see a urologist who shared an office with several other doctors. The waiting room was filled with patients. The old gentleman approached the receptionist desk. The receptionist was a large imposing woman who looked like a wrestler. He gave her his name. In a very loud voice the receptionist said, "Yes, I see your name here. You want to see the doctor about impotence, right?" The heads of all the patients in the waiting room snapped around, to look at the very embarrassed man. The old gent recovered quickly though, and in an equally loud voice replied, "No, I've come to inquire about a sex change operation... But I don't want the same doctor that klutzed up yours!" ____________________________________________________ From Song Dear Webby, I used to hate getting up and checking the mail, until you finally convinced me to get the MailWasher.
