_____________________________________________________ While on a car trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. After finishing their meal, the elderly woman left her glasses on the table, but she didn't miss them until they were back on the highway. By then, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around. The elderly man fussed and complained all the way back to the restaurant. He called his wife every bad name he could think of. When they finally arrived at the restaurant, and the woman got out of the car to retrieve her glasses, the man yelled to her, "And while you're in there, you might as well get my hat, too." ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Cedella Roman, 19 White Rock, BC French Teen detained for two weeks after jogging across Canada-US border A young French woman was held by US border control for two weeks after she accidentally crossed the border when she went for a jog. Cedella Roman, 19, ran across the border just south of the town of White Rock in Canada’s British Columbia, into the US state of Washington on the evening of May 21. She headed back when the tide began to come in, going up toward a dirt path before stopping to take a photo of the stunning scenery, then turned around to retrace her steps. It was then that she was apprehended by two US Border Patrol officers who told her she had crossed illegally and had been caught on camera. ‘I told him I had not done it on purpose, and that I didn’t understand what was happening,’ she said. Roman protested that she hadn’t seen any warning signs, and didn’t initially anticipate how serious the matter would become. ‘I said to myself, well I may have crossed the border – but they’ll probably only give me a fine or they’ll tell me to go back to Canada or they’ll give me a warning.’ Complicating matters, Roman, who had come to Canada to visit her mother and work on her English, wasn’t carrying any government-issued ID on her at the time. She was transferred by the officers to the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center, run by the Department of Homeland Security, 200 kilometers (120 miles) south. ‘They put me in the caged vehicles and brought me into their facility,’ she said. ‘They asked me to remove all my personal belongings with my jewelry, they searched me everywhere. ‘Then I understood it was getting very serious, and I started to cry a bit.’ When she reached the centre, she contacted her mother, Christiane Ferne, who quickly reached the centre with her passport and study permits – but the workers at the site said the documents would have to be verified by Canadian authorities. She was held at the centre for two weeks before the matter was resolved and she was allowed to return to Canada. Ferne said the lack of clear signs had led to her daughter’s predicament. ‘It’s like a trap… anybody can be caught at the border like this,’ she said. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to CBC that Roman was discharged on June 6. But neither the ICE nor Immigration Canada would comment further on the case, citing privacy concerns. A spokesperson for the US Customs and Border Protection told CBC that anyone who enters the US outside an official port of entry and without inspection has crossed the border illegally and will be detained. ‘This applies regardless of whether or not the individual claims to have inadvertently crossed the border,’ the department said. The Peace Arch and huge US border station are about a quarter mile south of the border but clearly visible from two miles away. The Canadian Welcome sign is about that far north of the border. The beach is about 50 feet from the border station. The customs officers have always looked out the windows on the West, just in case some bikinis were bouncing by. I used to party there with friends in the early 70s. Even then you had to have some legal ID to show, if the customs officers asked for it. It was always a friendly and low key affair, but they made sure you carried legal ID, even in those days. In those days and until 9/11 a drivers license was enough for Canadians to cross the border into the US and for Americans to cross into Canada. On the road there was always a lot of commuting to work, Americans working in BC and Canadians working in the US. During rush hour, having a hard hat or lunch kit on the dash got you waved through with a nod. 9/11 changed that quite brutally. They probably suspected that she was scouting a route for illegal immigrants, and telling everybody in France how easy it was to get into the USA from Canada. Looks like they smartened her up!
Tech Support Pits From: Ginny Re: Move taskbar icons Dear Webby Is there a way to move the icons on the taskbar so that they are in the order that I use them? I can only re-arrange the icons in the little hot-bar section by the START, but the rest of the task bar, that has the buttons for programs that are running, there Windows won't let me move them. Thanks Ginny Dear Ginny Before Windows 7 we used to have to use the Taskbar Shuffler from Nowadays you can drag them. Carefully put the cursor onto a grey corner of a taskbar icon, hold down the left mouse button and drag the icon to where you want it. It acts as if you had the Taskbar Shuffler already installed. Have FUN DearWebby

Planning a weekend of entertaining guests, I made a list of things I needed to do, including taking food out of the freezer and grocery shopping. As it happened, a friend whom I had been promising to take to lunch asked if we could make it that Friday. So, hopping into the car, I taped my "to do" list to the dashboard and went and picked her up. As she settled into the car, her face dropped. "Thanks a lot!" she sulked. Then I glanced at my list and saw the first item: "Take out the Turkey."

Soon after our last child left home for college, my husband was resting next to me on the couch with his head in my lap. I carefully removed his glasses. "You know, honey," I said sweetly, "Without your glasses you look like the same handsome young man I married." "Honey," he replied with a grin, "Without my glasses, you still look pretty good, too!" ____________________________________________________
