While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The Devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth. Putin calls Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he was finished the Devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a cheque.. Next Donald Trump calls the U.S. and talks for 30 minutes. When he's finished the Devil informs him that the cost is 6 million dollars, so Trump writes him a cheque. Finally Trudeau has his turn and calls Canada for 4 hours. When he's finished, the Devil informs him that there would be No charge and to feel free to call Canada anytime. Putin and Trump go ballistic and ask the Devil why Trudeau got to call Canada for free.Ă‚ The Devil replied, " Since Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister of Canada, the country has gone to Hell, so it's a local call! _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ To pass the time while our plane was being de-iced, the flight attendants played a trivia game with the passengers. They asked us to guess the total number of years the three of them had worked for the airlines. After an attendant collected our estimates, we heard the announcement: "The correct answer is 26 years. For the two people who came closest with 28 years, we have prizes. And for the passenger in seat 12F who guessed 85 years, would you please step off the plane once we are airborne." ______________________________________________________ Have you ever seen a bear tree? _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Billy Wethington, Louisville, Kentucky Where's the beef? Frankfort man accused of taking $75,000 worth of beef tenderloin A Kentucky man is accused of stealing more than $75,000 of beef tenderloin over several months. News outlets report 42-year-old Billy Wethington was arrested in Louisville on Friday and charged with theft by unlawful taking. Police say Wethington worked at an undisclosed business. During each shift, they say, he's accused of shoving eight to 10 beef tenderloins into a garbage bag and putting it in his vehicle. An arrest citation says Wethington was captured on surveillance video stealing the beef. Court records show the business lost more than $75,000 and up to $100,000 over the course of eight months. The newspaper says police didn't initially reveal what Wethington did with the beef that he's accused of stealing. It's unclear if Wethington has a lawyer who could comment.
From: Bill Re: Hyperlinks in Eudora Dear DearWebby I had another computer crash, that's the fifth since installing W10 in October, 2018. After reinstalling my programs, hyperlinks in Eudora 7 do not open in Fifefox. I have two questions: 1) How can I check for hardware problems such as motherboard. 2) How can I get the hyperlinks to work. All the best. Bill Dear Bill That is not a hardware problem. You had a 3 month grace period to revert to W7, but that is over. The hyperlinks in Eudora have worked since about 1989. No change there. Check in the Control panel, Default programs, and make sure FireFox is selected as the default program for hyper links and web pages, and not some wacky stuff like Bing or Bling or Safari or Opera or IE or Edge or the Chinesse clone of IE: Maxthon. Sure, you COULD use Chrome or any of those, but you need to install them first. I use Chrome and am quite happy with it. It is similar to FireFox but of course the settings are all shuffled around, as is common with modern programs. They don't want to get sued for copyright infringement. The program does the same stuff ever since Netscape, but the customization settings are not in the same order. You still drive the same old car, but use different gloves. Make sure Firefox, or any actually installed program is selected. Eudora does not specify which browser to use. It just yells BROWSER and Windoze then looks in the control panel and opens whichever browser is specified in there. Have Fun! DearWebby

Our manager at the restaurant where I worked was a much beloved, jovial man. But there was one subject you didn't dare discuss in front of him -- his height. Or, should I say, his lack of it. One day, he stormed through the door and announced angrily, "Someone just picked my pocket!" Most of my fellow waitresses and I were speechless, except for the one who blurted out, "How could anyone stoop so low?"

TWO ELDERLY WOMEN were trying on shoes in our store. When I slipped a shoe onto one woman's foot, the end of my tie got caught beneath her heel. Unaware of my predicament, she stood up and started toward the mirror. For a few seconds, I found myself crawling along the floor beside her, trying to get her attention. "Look, Martha," her friend said. "He wants to go home with you!" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com It will spread out the moisture more evenly.

___________________________________________________ FIVE YEARS AFTER my wife, Bridgid, and I were married, we received our final wedding gift -- an ice-cream maker. In an attempt to cover procrastination with humor, the friend who sent it included a note: "I wanted to make sure the marriage would last." Bridgid wasn't amused, but she thought the present deserved a thank-you note anyway, which she dutifully sent five years later. Her note read: "I wanted to be sure the ice-cream maker would last." ___________________________________________________ A police officer was investigating an accident on a two-lane, narrow road in which the drivers had hit virtually head-on. One driver, an extremely elderly woman, kept repeating, "He wouldn't let me have my half of the road!" After gathering as much information as possible, he approached the other driver, who was examining his own damage. The police officer asked, "That old lady says that you wouldn't let her have her half of the road. Why not?" In exasperation, the man turns from his smashed car and says, "Officer, I would have been HAPPY to give her half of the road -- - if she had just let me know WHICH half she wanted!!!!" ___________________________________________________

I was golfing with a soldier who had just returned from Afghanistan. His plans included becoming a greens keeper once he was discharged in a few months. He applied to a local college for its golf course superintendent program, but the department chair worried that he might not be up for the job. "It's stressful," he said. "You have to fight the weather, insects and demanding club members." "Will anyone be shooting at me while I mow the grass?" asked the soldier. "Of course not." "I'll take the job." ___________________________________________________
