A driver who was bringing a meticulously prepared and
pre-dented bus to a location in New York City for an
on-location movie shoot, was too early and drove to a nearby
restaurant to wait there. Just to be funny, he carefully lined
up the artificial dent at the front with a light pole.

When he came back out of the restaurant, there were eight

Homeowner Returns From Work,
Interrupts Pot And Cake Party

Four Union County residents have been accused of breaking into a
woman's house, smoking marijuana, baking a cake and stealing a pair
of shoes.

It happened around 3 p.m. Monday on East Houston Street, according
to 'The Gleaner.'

The Morganfield Police Department says a resident came home from
work to find Jeremiah Garib, 19, Xavion R. Elkins, 20, and two
juveniles running out of her house.

Officials said the resident was able to positively identify Garib
as an acquaintance of her son, who was not home. MPD Chief Geoffrey
Deibler said Garib, Elkins and the juveniles did not have
permission to be in the dwelling.

Police said after looking around the house, the owner discovered
that she'd interrupted a party of sorts with cake, ice cream, and
marijuana.

"When the individuals broke into the home they had baked a cake,
and were preparing to eat the cake and some ice cream when the
homeowner returned home from work," a news release said. "Upon
fleeing they had left some marijuana residue inside the home and
the smell of smoked marijuana was in the air."

In a later interview with The Gleaner, Chief Deibler said the group
apparently couldn't find icing so they opened a jar of homemade jam
and were using it to ice the cake.

taken the time to grab a pair of the resident's son's shoes,
Deibler said.

When Garib allegedly left the house, he went to a local business
called Theramax on North Court Street. There he hid some marijuana
that had been "packaged for sale" in a trash can, Deibler said.

Two were arrested and face charges.

Re: Cloud Backup, again

Dear Webby,
Good Morning:
I was wondering if you have had a chance to consider my question
about cloud backup. I am presently backing up to two external
drives using "EaseUS ToDo". I find this to be less than
satisfactory, because I still lose data.

The original email appears below.
Thanks again.
Bill

Hi Bill
I answered you on June  14.
Look for the one where I mentioned Xcopy.

Subject: Re: Cloud Backup

Are you blocking me or sending me to your SPAM folder?

Here it is again:
==================================
Hi Bill
By using an intelligent method to backing up, you can save yourself
a lot of money.

For example, Windows is stashed on a hidden partition and can be
re-installed from there. If the hard drive fails, you can get it
again from the manufacturer.

can print those.

Do that with everything, except the stuff you have created or
That will actually be very little and will easily fit into a free

You can even put it onto a thumb drive or camera chip.
You can use a DOS bat using xcopy, the world's most powerful
"program".
With xcopy you just copy what is newer at the source than at the
destination, a trick that saves a lot of time and space.

Make a plain text list of what you want to back up.
then write a "bat" using that list and pasting
xcopy /D /E /C /H /I /O /R /Y /Z
in the front of each line,
and at the end a space and the destination.

An example line would be:
xcopy /D /E /C /H /I /O /R /Y /Z C:\Program Files
(x86)\Qualcomm\Eudora\*.* I:\alpha\eudora

I: in this case is the camera chip, that you use for back-up.

Once you got all the goodies listed like that, save the file as
back.bat
Find the file with the file explorer, and make a shortcut icon for
it, and drag that to the desktop.

Now, every time you swat that shortcut, it will check all items in
your list to see what is newer on the computer than on the camera
chip. It won't waste time on stuff, that is not newer, and just

You can, of course, use two camera chips, one to be in your safety
deposit box, and the other in a chip reader, and once a month you
swap the chips.

All those "switches"  (/D /E /C /H /I /O /R /Y /Z) are optional.
You can read up on them here, but no need to study and memorize
them.
Just use them the way I got them in the example.

You can, of course, use different ones. Up to you.

XCOPY source [destination] [/A | /M] [/D[:date]] [/P] [/S [/E]]
[/V] [/W]
[/C]  [/Q] [/F] [/L] [/G] [/H] [/R]
[/T] [/U]
[/K] [/N] [/O] [/X] [/Y] [/-Y] [/Z]
[/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...]

source       Specifies the file(s) to copy.
destination  Specifies the location and/or name of new files.
/A           Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
doesn't change the attribute.
/M           Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
turns off the archive attribute.
/D:m-d-y     Copies files changed on or after the specified date.
If no date is given, copies only those files whose
source time is newer than the destination time.
/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...
Specifies a list of files containing strings.  Each
string
should be in a separate line in the files.  When any
of the
strings match any part of the absolute path of the
file to be
copied, that file will be excluded from being
copied.  For
example, specifying a string like \obj\ or .obj will
exclude
all files underneath the directory obj or all files
with the
.obj extension respectively.
/P           Prompts you before creating each destination file.
/S           Copies directories and subdirectories except empty
ones.
/E           Copies directories and subdirectories, including
empty ones.
Same as /S /E. May be used to modify /T.
/V           Verifies the size of each new file.
/W           Prompts you to press a key before copying.
/C           Continues copying even if errors occur.
/I           If destination does not exist and copying more than
one file,
assumes that destination must be a directory.
/Q           Does not display file names while copying.
/F           Displays full source and destination file names
while copying.
/L           Displays files that would be copied.
/G           Allows the copying of encrypted files to destination
that does
not support encryption.
/H           Copies hidden and system files also.
/T           Creates directory structure, but does not copy
files. Does not
include empty directories or subdirectories. /T /E
includes
empty directories and subdirectories.
/U           Copies only files that already exist in destination.
/K           Copies attributes. Normal Xcopy will reset read-
only attributes.
/N           Copies using the generated short names.
/O           Copies file ownership and ACL information.
/X           Copies file audit settings (implies /O).
/Y           Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to
overwrite an
existing destination file.
/-Y          Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
existing destination file.
/Z           Copies networked files in restartable mode.
/B           Copies the Symbolic Link itself versus the target of
/J           Copies using unbuffered I/O. Recommended for very
large files.

Instead of a camera chip, you can, of course, also back up onto
Google Drive, Microsoft Drive, BackBlaze, whatever. Entirely up to
you.

The major advantage is that Xcopy is extremely fast, since it does
not waste time on files, that are not new since the last back-up.
That greatly reduces the chance of a power bump or impatient shut-
down while a back-up is still in progress.

Re: SecurityCenter.FirewallDisableNotify

Good Morning, DearWebby
This is in reply to Don and removing the Firewall Disable
notify from his Spybot.  I had the same problem all the time
and finally I right clicked on it when it appeared in the
remove panel and then clicked on DO NOT CHECK FOR
THIS and it stopped coming up all the time.

Have a super day and thanks again for the great humour letter

Dear Darlene
yes, that certainly works, and with that particular item is
quite safe to use. You can also tell it not to worry about
Amazon, and other legitimate places.

Sensational warnings spawned south of the border
WASHINGTON (AP) - An odd-looking Canadian quarter with a
bright red flower was the culprit behind a false espionage
warning from the U.S. Defense Department about mysterious
coins with radio frequency transmitters, The Associated Press
has learned.

The harmless ''poppy quarter'' was so unfamiliar to suspicious
U.S. army contractors travelling in Canada that they filed
confidential espionage accounts about them. The worried
contractors described the coins as ''filled with something
man-made that looked like nano-technology,'' according to
once classified U.S. government reports and e-mails
obtained by the AP.

The silver-coloured 25-cent piece features the red image of a
poppy, Canada's flower of remembrance and support for the
troops, inlaid over a maple leaf..

Dear Shirley
We don't just have Support The Troops quarters with the red
poppy, we also have Breast Cancer Quarters with the pink
ribbon. This one is a bit worn, but the only one I had in my
wallet today.

A judge was instructing the jury that a witness was not
necessarily to be regarded as untruthful because he changed
his statement after he gave it to the police.

"For example," he said, "when I entered my chambers today, I
was positive that I had my gold watch in my pocket. But then I
remembered that I left in on my nightstand in my bedroom."

When the judge returned home that evening, his wife asked him
"Why so much urgency for your watch? Isn't sending three men
to pick it up for you a bit extreme?"

"What?" said the judge, "I didn't send anyone for my watch,
let alone three people. What did you do?"

"I gave it to the first one," said the wife, "he knew exactly
where it was."

Potato Storage
To keep potatoes from budding, place a small apple in the
bag with the potatoes. You should also store them in a dark,
cool location and keep them away from onions, to avoid
moldy potatoes and onions.

An ancient classic:
A woman suspects her husband is cheating on her. One day, she dials
her home and a strange woman answers. The woman says, " Who is
this?"

"This is the maid," answered the woman. "We don't have a maid,"
said the woman.

The maid says, "I was hired this morning by the man of the house."

The woman says, "Well, this is his wife. Is he there?"

The maid replied, "He is upstairs in the bedroom with someone who I
figured was his wife."

The woman is fuming. she says to the maid, "Listen, would you like
to make $50,000?" The maid says, "What will I have to do?" The woman tells her, "I want you to get my gun from the desk, and shoot the jerk and the witch he's with." The maid puts the phone down; the woman hears footsteps and the gun shots. The maid comes back to the phone, "What do I do with the bodies?" The woman says, "Throw them in the swimming pool." Puzzled, the maid answers, "But there's no pool here." A long pause and the woman says, "Is this 555-4821?" ___________________________________________________ Ophelia Dingbatter's NewsNo sermon and not suitable for church, just jokes and fun for grownups.
