The electronic equipment that comes on board creates the biggest challenge. I walk the aisle asking passengers to turn off computers, electronic games and cell phones, which can create inter- ference in communications between the pilot and the air traffic control tower. During one landing, a man persistently kept his cell phone at his ear. I confronted him and said, "Sir, you cannot talk on your phone until we reach the gate." "I am not talking," he replied. "My wife is talking. I'm listening." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ "Grandpa, I'm really proud of you," said the modish young lady.

Larysa Saad, 42, was taken off life support at Coney Island Hospital on Tuesday — 10 days after police say Ruslan Baimov ripped her throat open during a bloody attack in Seagate. Family members plan to donate Saad’s organs, police said. Saad’s ex-husband wanted to keep her alive, hoping she would recover, her landlord Joseph Nikosevic said. She was making tea in her friend’s apartment on Neptune Ave. when Baimov pushed in an air conditioner and climbed through an open window just before midnight on Oct. 28, police said. Saad’s friend had recently broken up with Baimov, 40, who lives in the same building on an upper floor. “It's so sad,” Nikosevic, 64, said. "You should never help anybody. You seen what happens? She lost her life." Baimov slit Saad’s throat and then stabbed and raped his ex- girlfriend — all while the woman’s 11-year-old daughter hid in a bedroom, authorities said. He then allegedly held the two women hostage for hours, alternating between kissing his wounded former paramour and threatening to kill her. Saad remained on the ground in a pool of her own blood, gurgling and gasping for air, her 42-year-old friend told the Daily News. Baimov left the apartment about four hours after he broke in. Saad was rushed to Coney Island Hospital, where she was put on a respirator. Baimov is charged with attempted murder and rape. He was ordered held without bail following his arraignment on Oct. 31. The Brooklyn District Attorney will increase the charges to murder at Baimov’s next court appearance, sources said. He will of course also have charges for burglary of an occupied dwelling, assault with a deadly weapon and rape. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Alice Re: Mail not getting through Dear Webby, I am sending this from a friend's computer, because mail from my computer does not seem to get through to anybody. What could be the cause of that? My regualr address is alicer@... Alice Dear Alice, The reason your mail is blocked by everybody is because you use an autoresponder. That makes you look like a silly moron and a nuisance, and your address gets blacklisted. You absolutely do NOT need to tell anybody, that their email arrived and that you will look at it when you get around to it or the next business day. That just annoys people. Most spam control programs recognize autoresponders, automatically dump mails from them and blacklist that address. Get rid of that dumb autoresponder and change your address. Most likely your friends will forgive you for having annoyed them with an autoresponder. Have FUN! DearWebby Reply from Alice Dear Webby At first I was miffed at your reply, that sounded like you had preached the same thing too many times. Pardon me for not having been subscribed as long as others. Then I phoned my daughter, hoping she had a different explanation. Well, golly, she didn't. And she had me blacklisted! Not on purpose, but as you said, anything that smells like an auto- responder gets dumped and the sender blacklisted. Now I dumped my autoresponder, and the stupid book that recommended it. Thanks Alice Autoresponders are only justified when they deliver requested information, like for example a price list, or weather update, or event schedule, or even race results when somebody sends a blank email to a certain address. Other than that, it's best to avoid them like the plague.

An English teacher often wrote little notes on student essays. She was working late one night, and as the hours passed, her handwriting deteriorated. The next day a student came to her after class with his essay she had corrected. "I can't make out this comment you wrote on my paper." The teacher took the paper, and after squinting at it for a minute, sheepishly replied, "It says that you need to write more legibly!"

A serious drunk walked into a bar and, after staring for some time at the only woman seated at the bar, walked over to her and kissed her. She jumped up and slapped him silly. He immediately apologized and explained, "I'm sorry. I thought you were my wife. You look exactly like her." "Why you worthless, insufferable, wretched, no good drunk!" she screamed. "Funny," he muttered, "you even sound like her." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Storing Seeds Seeds that you didn't get around to planting this year should be fine next year if stored properly. Most seeds can be stored for 3 to 4 years. The key will be storing the seeds in a cool, dry, and dark place. Keep the temperature between 40 and 50 degrees F. It's best to store them in a moisture-proof, sealed container. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com If you have ever seen a "Superbloom" in Death Valley, when wind blown seeds, that have been laying dormant for 50 years or since the last good rain, finally get a rain and just explode in a total color festival, then you stop worrying about storing seeds. Temperature and temperature changes from 100 degrees in the afternoon to near freezing at sunrise mean absolutely nothing to dry seeds. Just keep them dry. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Honey & Joe for this story: Married 52 years, I took a look at my wife Julie yesterday and said, "Honey, 52 years ago, we had a cheap apartment, a cheap car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10 inch black and white TV, but I go to sleep every night with a hot 25 year old chick. Now, we have a nice house, nice car, big bed and plasma screen TV, but I'm sleeping with a 70+ year old woman. It seems to me that you are not holding up your side of things." Now Julie is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 25 year old chick, and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car, sleeping on a sofa bed.... ____________________________________________________ A retired four-star general ran into his former orderly, also retired, in a Manhattan bar and spent the rest of the evening persuading him to come work for him as his valet. "Your duties will be exactly the same as they were in the army," the general said. "Nothing to it-you'll catch on again fast." Next morning promptly at eight o'clock, the ex-orderly entered the ex-general's bedroom, pulled open the drapes, gave the general a gentle shake, strode around the other side of the bed, spanked his employer's wife on her bottom and said, "OK, bunny, it's back to the village for you." __________________________________________________

While out one morning in the park, a jogger found a brand new tennis ball, and seeing nobody around it might belong to, he slipped it into the pocket of his shorts. Later, on his way home, he stopped at a pedestrian crossing, waiting for the lights to change. A girl standing next to him eyed the large bulge in his shorts. "What's that?" she asked. "Tennis ball," came the breathless reply. "Oh," said the girl sympathetically, "that must be painful, I had tennis elbow once...." ___________________________________________________
