I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it. --- Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826) Don't ever take a fence down until you know the reason it was put up. --- G. K.

"If you would like to arrange a delivery date, please press one," the automated voice prompted me. "If you would like to confirm delivery, please press two." At that moment my three-year-old daughter let out an ear- piercing shriek. "I'm sorry," the automated voice said, "that is not a valid response." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Don goes into business for himself. He buys a hotdog cart and sets it up in a prime spot on a busy downtown corner, right near a large bank. One day, his friend Jim approaches him and asks Don if he can lend him some money. Don refuses. "But why?" asks Jim. "Everyone knows you're doing well, and I'm not asking for much." "Well, Jim, in order to get this spot I had to sign a Non- competition Agreement with that bank over there.

From: Janice Re: Eudora and FireFox Dear DearWebby, I see Eudora has a free download. But does it cost anything to use or to have just a personal account? I hate Chrome and Google (which I think are the same or closely connected) but Firefox suits me fine. Is Eudora compatible with Firefox? Janice Dear Janice Eudora is free. It is a self sufficient, independent program and does not need ANY browser. I remember it was working just fine long before Microsoft copied Netscape and created Internet Explorer. There used to be a hot religious war between Netscape users and Microsoft Internet Explorer users. It made no difference to Eudora users. If Eudora is too Industrial looking for you, you can get ThunderBird. It is based on the Eudora core, but has all the corners rounded off and colored nicely. Millions of former Eudora users now use Thunderbird, because Windows 7 Pro and Windows 10 does not mesh with Eudora very well. For example clicking on an email address in Excel SHOULD open a new mail in Eudora with that address already in the TO line. Unfortunately, Windows is a bit unreliable about that. With Thunderbird there is no problem with that. Eudora is at https://eudora.en.softonic.com/ Thunderbird is at https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/ Have FUN! DearWebby

Year after year Bubba's wife pleaded with him to take her fishing but he kept telling her she would not enjoy it. She, finally, wore him down, he consented, and early one morning they took off to the lake. They had not been there very long when the fish began biting. Almost as fast as they cast, a fish would bite, and they reeled it in. After catching their limit, Bubba said, "Verna Lou, sweet thang, I'm sorry. You've been good luck and I'm gonna bring you with me the next time. If you'll mark the spot where we caught all these fish, we'll go home." On the way home, Bubba turned to Verna Lou and said, "Sweet thang, how did you mark the spot were all the fish are so next time I'll know?" "Bubba, darlin', I put a big 'X' on the side of the boat right down closest to the water." "Sweet thang, that's about the dumbest thing I ever seed you do. Don't you know that won't work? We may not get the same boat the next time!"

A bus driver is conducting a tour of famous Civil War battle sites. "Here," he points out at one spot, "is where the Southern troops routed a whole regiment of Yankees. Over there, the Reb's wiped out a whole platoon of Yanks. Down about a mile, there's another valley where we captured a thousand Union soldiers." A tourist says, "Didn't the North ever win a battle?" "Maybe, Ma'am. But not while I'm driving this bus." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Vegetable Oil on Your Snow Shovel Coat your snow shovel with some vegetable oil to keep snow from sticking to it.

___________________________________________________ My wife and I were visiting her 95-year-old grandfather when he asked us to take him to buy a new hat. My wife took me aside. "I'm worried that he doesn't have enough money, and he'll be very embarrassed," she said. So I asked the salesperson to tell my wife's grandfather that whichever hat he chose cost $15. I would pay the difference. Grandpa picked out a hat and was charged $15. After he left, I paid the other $45 of the price. Later Grandpa said, "What a bargain! The last one I bought there cost me $60." ___________________________________________________ One woman was talking to her friend. "You should listen to my neighbor," she said. "She is always bad-mouthing her poor husband behind his back. I think that's so rude. Look at me! My husband is fat, lazy, cheap, and no good in bed, but have you ever heard me say a bad word about him?" ___________________________________________________

One criminal who was accused of several murders and robbery was sentenced to death by the judge of the court. It was decided that the criminal will be shot in front of a firing squad on a particular day. On that very day, the weather was very foul. It rained cats and dogs. There was no sufficient light to see anything clearly. But duty is duty so the captain of the squad along with his five soldiers took the criminal and started walking to the spot. On the way the criminal told the Captain, "See,what a weather! I am not afraid of death, but this day is not suitable for dying. What do you think?" "Truly, the weather is very foul", the Captain replied, "But you are fortunate as you are only going one way, just think of our condition! We have to go all the way back!". ___________________________________________________
