Good Morning, !
Today is Sunday, March 3

Late last night I watched the launch of the SpaceX rocket with
the Crew Dragon capsule. Everything went perfectly. When the
used first stage did a pin-point landing on the recovery barge
everybody at NASA went nuts with screaming applause. 

Today they will get to the space station and actually dock.
Previously, with the cargo modules, they just got close enough
and then used the Canadarm to fetch them and plug them in.
This time, with the crew module, they will hit the air lock
with their shot from Florida.

You can watch that at
Don't worry if the docking is during your sleep time. They will
of course record it and you can replay the historic event
whenever you have time.

I only know two pieces; one is 'Clair de Lune' and the other one isn't. --- Victor Borge (1909 - 2000) The true test of character is not how much we know how to do, but how we behave when we don't know what to do. --- John Holt ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ >From Ross How to Use Your IRS Rebate Check... As you may have heard, each of us will be getting a tax rebate check to stimulate the economy. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China. If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs. If we purchase a computer it will go to China. If we purchase fruits and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala. If we purchase a good car it will go to Japan. If we purchase useless stuff it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy. We need to keep that money here in America. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it at yard sales, tattoo parlors and on hookers, since those are the only businesses still in the US! Trump is slowly changing that, but Pelosi will call you a racist, if you buy American stuff. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ More than anything, a young man from the city wanted to be a cowboy.

The Pensacola News Journal reports that 33-year-old Evan Charles McLemore was arrested Tuesday and charged with resisting an officer and aggravated stalking. Police say officers responded to a report of a possible battery at the Pensacola home and found McLemore had barricaded himself in a room. Officers say McLemore claimed to have a gun, so they brought in a SWAT team. Crisis negotiators eventually managed to coax McLemore out with the promise of pizza. It wasn’t clear if he actually received a slice. McLemore’s bond was set at $105,000 bond. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
Chuck Re: Connect Win XP to W10 computer Dear DearWebby IS THERE A WAY I CAN HOOK UP A COMPUTER RUNNING WINXP TO MY COMPUTER RUNNING W10 AND TRANSFER FILES? THANK YOU, CHUCK Dear Chuck There IS a way to directly connect them with a special cable, but that method requires serious reading of instructions. There is even a special USB cable available, that has a bridging chip in it. Don't use an ordinary USB cable! It will kill one of the two machines! A simple router is probably the easiest, and since everybody uses them, any neighbor kid can help you with the set-up, if necessary. However, it is quite simple and straightforward and nothing to worry about. Just plug both machines into the router, Open the little manual that comes with the router and log in to the web interface. The manual has the URL, user name and password. On the web interface choose the Wizard. It guides you through the setup quickly and easily. Have Fun! DearWebby

Thanks to Linda for this story: I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my five-year-old shout from the back seat, "Mom! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt!"

Ken and Melba had finished their breakfast at the retirement home and were relaxing in the library. "You know," said Melba, "today, in most marriage ceremonies, they don't use the word 'obey' anymore." "Too bad, isn't it?" retorted Ken. "It used to lend a little humor to the occasion." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Washing Delicate Crystal or China If you are washing delicate dishes in your sink, line the bottom of the sink with a bath towel before filling it. This will protect your crystal and china from getting chipped on the hard sink bottom. Never use your dishwasher, it is just too harsh and dishes shift around. ____________________________________________________

Not Your Normal Squirrel I never dreamed that slowly cruising on my motorcycle through a residential neighborhood could be so incredibly dangerous! Little did I suspect. I was on Brice Street - a very nice neighborhood with perfect lawns and slow traffic. As I passed an oncoming car, a brown furry missile shot out from under it and tumbled to a stop immediately in front of me. Inches before impact, and at the last possible second, he screamed and leapt! Snarling, hissing, and tearing at my clothes, he was a frenzy of activity. As I was dressed only in a light T-shirt, summer riding gloves, and jeans, this was a bit of a cause for concern. This furry little tornado was doing some damage! I grabbed for him with my left hand. After a few misses, I finally managed to snag his tail. With all my strength, I flung the evil rodent off to the left of the bike, almost running into the right curb as I recoiled from the throw. Somehow he caught my gloved finger with one of his little hands; and, with the force of the throw, he landed squarely on my BACK and resumed his antisocial and extremely distracting activities. And I was minus a glove. The combination of the force of the throw, only having the throttle hand on the handlebars, can only have one result. Torque. The engine roared, and the front wheel left the pavement. The squirrel screamed in anger. The Valkyrie screamed in ecstasy. I screamed in -- well, I just plain screamed. About this time, he came around my neck and got INSIDE my full-face helmet. As the faceplate closed part way, he began hissing in my face. I am quite sure my screaming changed intensity. It had little effect on the squirrel, however. Finally, I got the upper hand. I managed to grab his tail again, pulled him out of my helmet, and slung him to the left as hard as I could. This time it worked -- sort of. At that moment, I chanced to be passing two cops, parked, doing paperwork. Suddenly they perceive my form, screaming bloody murder, roaring by them at 80 mph. At the same moment a live squirrel grenade impacts directly into their open window. I heard new screams. They weren't mine. When I looked back, the doors on both sides of the patrol car were flung wide open. The cop from the passenger side was on his back, doing a crab walk into somebody's front yard, quickly moving away from the car. The cop who had been in the driver's seat was standing in the street, aiming a riot shotgun at his own police car. That maniac squirrel was now shredding their upholstery. I took a deep breath, turned on my turn-signal, made a gentle right turn off of Brice Street, and sedately left the neighborhood. I decided it was best to just buy myself a new pair of gloves. And a whole lot of Band-Aids. -from James Mizell, a retired police chaplain (via Chapnotes) ___________________________________________________
