Tech Support Pits From: Rheta Re: Missing Mouse Dear Webby Good after noon to you. My question is a lost mouse. On my grand sons computer. Its a XP PC.I can't find it... help please. Rheta Hi there: And thanks for the reply. He has tried different mouse. But still nothing. Some one was telling me that theres keys that you can use instead of a mouse. Have any clues on that one?? Rheta Dear Rheta There are some keys you can use: Hit the Scroll Lock key a few times, to make sure it is turned off. If the mouse starts working after that, you got the problem solved. Arrow keys and combinations of SHIFT and CTRL plus the arrows, Tab, ALT-Tab to jump between Windows, but that's about it, and even those commands sometimes act differently in different programs. I use a lot of keyboard shortcuts, but they are not a complete substitute for a mouse. If you hit the Windows button, you can use the arrow keys to get into the control panel and to the mouse, and make sure it is not disabled. If everything looks OK in there, tell him to try a new mouse, not one that has been put on the shelf because it was too cute to throw away, even though it had become flakey. If the mouse settings are OK and a brand new mouse doesn't work either, then he will have to get the hardware checked. Have FUN DearWebby

The only time you were ever in the dry cleaners was to get out of the rain. You voted for more than one presidential candidate in the same election, more than once. People are scared to touch your bathrobe. Your stove is your cigarette lighter. You've never paid for a haircut. You wear your blaze-orange insulated suit to Sunday school. You have more cars on blocks than on wheels. The most fun you've ever had involved water balloons and a Ferris wheel. The trunk of your car doubles as a deep freezer. Your favorite stripper accepts food stamps. Your TV gets 512 channels but you go outside the trailer to use the bathroom. You can pick objects off the floor with your toes. Your son is named for your favorite pro wrestler. Your daughter mistakenly thought you'd attend her wedding on opening day of the deer season. You and your dog are on the same medication. Your car burns more oil than gas. The last thing your ex-wife said to you was, "If y'all go hunting again, I'm leaving!" You begin most sentences with "Y'all ain't gonna believe this!" Your deer lease costs more than your house. You burn out your clutch in a funeral procession. Your brother had to cosign to get your deer mounted. Your family reunion features a chewing tobacco spit-off. You know your daddy's C.B. handle but not his real name. The school principal has your number on speed dial.

Larry's barn burned down and his wife, Susan, called the insurance company. Susan told the insurance company, "We had that barn insured for fifty thousand and I want my money." The agent replied, "Whoa there, just a minute, Susan. Insurance doesn't work quite like that. We will ascertain the value of what was insured and provide you with a new one of comparable worth." There was a long pause before Susan replied, "Then I'd like to cancel the policy on my husband rahht NOW!"

>From Roland For a couple years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep or too much pressure from my job, but now I've found out the real reason that I am always tired. I'm overworked. The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work. There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work. Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work. 2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work. 14,800,000 people work for State and City Governments. That leaves 1.4 million to do the work. At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work. Given that there are 1,211,998 people in prisons, that leaves just two people to do the work, you and me. And you're sitting at your computer reading jokes! ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cooking Oil Bottle Cover Make use of an unmatched sock by cutting off the ribbed elastic part and slipping it over the neck of a bottle of cooking oil. The sock absorbs any oil that drips down the side of the bottle. You can decorate a white sock or pick a fancy sock to match your decor. By Michelle Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ The owner of a manufacturing firm decided to make a surprise tour of the factory. Walking through the warehouse he noticed a young man lazily leaning against a packing crate. The factory owner angrily said, "Just how much are you being paid?" The young man replied, "Two hundred dollars a week." The owner pulled out his wallet, peeled off ten $20 bills and shouted at the young man: "Here is a week's pay--now get out and don't come back!" Without a word, the young man stuffed the money into his pocket and left. The warehouse manager, standing nearby, stared in amazement. "Tell me," the boss asked him, "How long has that guy worked for us?" "He doesn't work here," replied the warehouse manager, "He was just the Pizza guy waiting for George to find two more dollars for his lunch order."

___________________________________________________ Horowitz was feeling ill at work, and left after lunch to go home. Hewalked into the house and found his wife Fanny in the arms of another man. He started to yell at the interloper, "What right have you got to be messing with my wife?" The man answered calmly, "You may as well know that I am in love with Fanny and I would like to marry her. I understand you're a gambler. Why don't you be a good sport and sit down and play a game of gin rummy with me? If I lose, I'll never see her again; if you lose, you must agree to divorce her.... Okay?" "Okay," replied Horowitz, "but just to make it a little more interesting, why don't we play for a dollar a point?" ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ The Priest had just finished hearing the man's confession and was considering the man's penitence. "Are you sure you're going to try to set aside all sin?" "Yes Father, I certainly am going to try." replied the man. "I here-by resolve to double my efforts." "And you're going to attend Mass regularly my son?" the Priest went on. "Yes Father, I realize I have strayed." said the man. "I shall both worship and confess every week." "And how about your debts and those you have cheated?" inquired the Priest. "Now just a minute Father." said the man. "Now you're talking business and not religion." ____________________________________________________
