There is always more misery among the lower classes than there is humanity in the higher. --- Victor Hugo (1802 - 1885), What some call health, if purchased by perpetual anxiety about diet, isn't much better than tedious disease. ---George Dennison Prentice Don't worry if your job is small, and your rewards are few.

From: Susan Re: Compressed Air versus vacuum Dear DearWebby Ever since my hubby took one of those government computer courses, he insists on using those expensive and silly compressed air cans to "clean" everything in, on or near computers, instead of using a vacuum cleaner. Is there any reason for doing that with compressed air? Susan Dear Susan No, there is absolutely no reason for blowing dirt and dust from one place to another or for blowing lose parts into inaccessible locations. It's just that puppy dogs and many men are scared of vacuum cleaners, so they come up with wimpy excuses for not using them. If you are worried about sucking up loose screws and springs, just use a clean filter bag. I have used a bag-pipe style ShopVac with shoulder strap since the days of the PC/XT (mid 80's), including a few years as mobile computer troubleshooter in the 90's, and never had any mishaps, except for occasionally tripping over the hose while running up narrow stairways, while carrying a repaired computer under the left arm, tool case in the right hand, vacuum on the back; and getting bumped by cute ladies coming down the stairs. But even that was fun. Just leave the computer plugged in but turned off. That way it is grounded and does not build up static. Use the vacuum cleaner's crevice tool and touch the bare metal at the back of computer as the first thing to clean, and you won't have any static related accidents. If you have kids, take those "compressed air" cans and heave them into the garbage. Kids like huffing them and every year a dozen or more of them die from that. Nobody ever died from using a vacuum cleaner. Have Fun! DearWebby

After the birth of my son, a woman from the records depart- ment stopped by my hospital room to get information for his birth certificate. "Father's date of birth?" she asked. When I told her, she said, "Do you realize that his birthday is exactly nine months before your son's birth?" "No, I hadn't thought about it," I responded, "but now that you mention it, I realize that I have a daughter who turned two a couple of days before the same date." After she finished taking down all the data, she patted my hand and said, "Maybe you should start buying your husband a tie for his birthday." ------------- And get his secretary pregnant instead?

One night at the dinner table, Jill commented, "When we were first married, you took the small piece of steak and gave me the larger. Now you take the large one and leave me the smaller; You don't love me any more..." "Nonsense, darling," replied John, "you just cook better now, and we can afford better steak knifes." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Sharp Blades on the Lawn Mower It's important to have sharp mowing blades. Dull blades don't cut the grass, they tear it. This causes stress to your lawn and makes it more susceptible to disease and insect problems. When grass is torn rather than cut, it can also develop a brown appearance. ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ A lady lost her handbag in the bustle of shopping at the mall. It was found by an honest little boy, who returned it to her. Looking in her purse, she commented, "Hmm, that's funny. When I lost my bag, there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills." The boy quickly replied, "That's right, lady. The last time I found a lady's purse, she didn't have any change for a reward." ___________________________________________________ One of the posh hotels in Las Vegas employs my sister-in-law as a room-service attendant. During a medical convention at the hotel, she was preparing a breakfast order that consisted of fried eggs, bacon, ham, hash browns and a cheese danish. "Now that's a heart attack waiting to happen," commented a passing co-worker. "Yeah," my sister-in-law replied. "And believe it or not, it's just what the doctor ordered!" ___________________________________________________

One day a mother took her 6-year-old son with her to visit a friend at work. Everyone there knew her, and she was offered a cup of coffee. That day, as one of the employees went to make more coffee, her son followed her and asked, "What are you doing?" "I'm making your mom's favorite drink," she answered. Imagine the woman's shock when she heard her son say, "Wow! You know how to make beer?" ___________________________________________________
