_____________________________________________________ Food for thought... You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus: 1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die. 2. An old friend who once saved your life. 3. The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about. Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car. Think before you continue reading. This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again. The candidate who was hired! (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. I love this, I may actually use it sometime for an interview situation. WHAT DID HE SAY? He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend, and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams." ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Scott Miller, Kathy Miller, Johnstown, Florida Couple involved in major drug bust in Johnstown Johnstown police have identified two people they say were involved in a major drug bust Saturday night.

JOHNSTOWN- Johnstown police have identified two people they say were involved in a major drug bust Saturday night. The police chief, Robert Johnson, said Scott and Kathy Miller were arrested and are now facing felony charges. Johnstown said officers were tipped off about suspicious drug activity happening at a home on Bedford Street. He said they got a search warrant and served it at the home Saturday night. Inside, police said they seized 45 pounds of marijuana, a gun and $3,000 in cash. "As I'm told, these people just moved into the neighborhood within the last week or so. So, this is a really nice bit of police work in a very quick time period for what these people have been here for," said Johnson. Johnson said the street value of the drugs seized is about $325,000. According to online documents, the Millers are facing felony charges including, manufacturing or possession with intent to deliver. Bail is set at $500,000 each.
Tech Support Pits From: Nina Re: Camera comparison Dear webby, What should I look for when comparing different cameras? Nina Dear Nina Look for a large lens to reach further into twilight, darkness and indoor shots without flash, and also higher picture quality. Look for a long optical zoom and anti-shake. Totally ignore digital zoom. That's a gimmick that doesn't work. Look for a real optical view finder that shows the correct zoom. I do like having the fold-out swivel monitor for indoor shots, but outside I find a camera quite useless, if it has no optical viewfinder. Don't worry about how many MegaPixels are claimed in the ads. That number is as phony as a Sears vacuum cleaner horsepower rating. About all that number is good for is for comparing cameras of the same brand. Different manufacturers use different size pixels and different ways to use them. Have FUN DearWebby

There was this city doctor who started a practice in the countryside. He once had to go to a farm to attend to a sick farmer who lived there. After a few housecalls he stopped coming to the farm. The puzzled farmer finally phoned him to ask whats the matter, didn't he like him or somethin'. The doctor said, "No, its your ducks at the entrance... Every time I enter the farm, they call me a quack!"

A Catholic boy was bragging to his Jewish friend. "My priest knows more than your rabbi." "Of course he does," said the Jewish boy. "You tell him everything." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Cheap Cleaner For large cleaning projects, try TSP (TriSodiumPhospahte) TSP used to be the main active ingredient in most detergents, but got a bad name because it promoted underwater weed growth in canals, rivers and lakes, into which improperly treated sewage was dumped into. What was bad was not the TSP, but Millions of people using a lot of it all year long. It was simply too much of a good thing. TSP is still a powerful phospate fertilizer, and your tomatoes will love it, when you dump the used cleaning water near them. You won't find TSP at the supermarket, where all the overpriced and nicely packaged retail cleaners are. You can find it at building and industrial paint suppliers, in the PAINT section. Painters use it, after thinning it down with a lot of water, to clean dirty walls before painting. TSP is dirt cheap. At Canadian Tire for example, a gallon jug of concentrate is CDN $4.95. For cleaning previously painted stuff, use 40 parts of water to one part TSP. For a really greasy stove vent hoods or car engines, use one part water and one part TSP.
