I notice you have given advice about some computer questions. I have one. I have been receiving an “active update” for Aim Triton 1.5 Preview that appears as a popup. I have Aim instant messenger but do not want the Triton update. The problem is, I cannot get rid of the active update from popping up every little bit. There is no delete button with it. There is a view history which will call up a box which lists the Triton preview, which I highlight and delete. But shortly thereafter the update will pop up again. I cannot fine an e-mail address to send to the Aim company with my complaint. How do I get rid of this nuisance? Thank you for any help! Ronda Edith Dear Rhonda Yes, I do answer computer questions. That's how I got stuck with the "DearWebby" nickname in the late 80s and early 90s. I think AIM Triton has gone out of fashion. Most likely what you got is some kind of malicious infection. AIM is AOL Instant Messenger. Contact AOL support and find out if the pop-up is really theirs, or some other nuisance trying to cash in on a recognized name. You can also use MalwareBytes and scan your machine for malware. Have FUN! DearWebby

Never in his 40 years of life had he seen anything like it. How anyone could have survived he did not know. He could only hope that somewhere amid the overwhelming destruction he would find his 16-year-old son. Only the slim hope of finding Danny kept him from turning and fleeing the scene. He took a deep breath and proceeded. Walking was virtually impossible with so many things strewn across his path. He moved ahead slowly. "Danny! Danny!" he whispered to himself. He tripped and almost fell several times. He heard someone, or something, move. At least he thought he did. Perhaps, he was just hoping he did. He shook his head and felt his gut tighten. He couldn't understand how this could have happened. There was some light but not enough to see very much. Something cold and wet brushed against his hand. He jerked it away. In desperation, he took another step then cried out, "Danny!" From a nearby pile of unidentified material, he heard his son. "Yes, Dad," he said, in a voice so weak it could hardly be heard. "It's time to get up," the man sighed, "and, for heaven's sake, clean up this room!"

Two women were walking through the woods when a frog called out to them and said: "Help me, ladies! I am a stockbroker who, through an evil witch's curse, has been transformed into a frog. If one of you will kiss me, I'll be returned to my former state!" One woman took out her purse, grabbed the frog, and stuffed it inside her handbag. The other woman, aghast, screamed, "Didn't you hear him? If you kiss him, he'll turn into a stockbroker!" The second woman replied, "Sure, but these days a talking frog is worth more than a stockbroker!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Marked Down Meat Grocery stores mark down meat when it gets near its "sell by" date. There is nothing wrong with the meat, the grocery store just needs to move it before the "sell by" date has passed. If you are shopping for tonight's dinner then this meat can be real bargain. If you don't plan on eating the meat quickly, freeze it for future use. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com Most meats are "doctored" to appear red and fresh longer, however, in spite of all the chemicals, eventually it still turns dark. That does not mean it is bad. Green is bad, but brown is good! That is when chefs, and those who know, buy the meat. At 21 to 28 days after slaughter a steak is as tender as if you got it at a high class steak restaurant. Sure, some, like Outback, cheat a bit and marinade in some rather strong stuff to make them tender and juicy, but the same can be accomplished by simply aging the meat about 3 weeks. The ideal time for steaks or roasts is when they are as dark as properly smoked salami. Because most people don't know about that and go for the fresh, bright red cuts, stores often mark the meat down when it gets darker. That's just fine by me. I'll gladly take the darkest steaks. If the meat feels dry, half an hour in a simple sea salt brine will juice it right up.
