Dog Days-How Training Benefits Both Pet Owners And Pets 



Welcome!
Whether you are a new pet owner or you have had a pet in your home for some time, you know how delightful, and frustrating, owning a pet can be.

The joy of bringing a new puppy or dog into your household can be insurmountable. After all, there is no relationship quite like the one that is developed between you and your dog.

A dog can provide unconditional love, hours of entertainment, and genuine friendship. Or, a dog can provide unconditional messes, hours of destruction, and a genuine nuisance!

How do you ensure that your dog behaves in the manner of the first scenario described above? If you are thinking that the answer is "breed" you are partially correct. Indeed, breed does play a role in a dog's behavior. But an even greater factor in the dog's behavior is based on the training he receives. Good dog training resources can go a long way toward helping.

The Benefits of Training
If you are like most people, you are extremely busy. Some days, there just doesn't seem like enough hours to take care of yourself, let alone a dog! But, the time that you spend training your dog will reward you and your relationship for many, many years to come.

There are five main benefits of training:
1. It builds a relationship. 2. It corrects behavioral problems. 3. It stimulates intellect. 4. It encourages inclusion. 5. It saves time. Let's explore each benefit in further detail.

1. Training Builds a Relationship.
There is no better way to create a bond with your dog than through the process of training. You may think that training begins at the time you decide to try new tricks, but it actually begins at the very moment you acquire your dog.

Your dog is constantly watching you and learning from your actions. He learns from the way you react to his actions. He looks to you for guidance, for food, for warmth, for comfort, and for playtime.

2. Training Corrects Behavioral Problems.
Barking at anyone who passes by the front window, chewing up your favorite pillows, digging through your freshly planted garden, bolting out of an open door...do any of these actions look familiar to you?

When you have developed a trusting bond with your dog, you can teach him how to correct these behavioral problems. He will learn by your reactions whether or not his actions are acceptable to you. No doubt, he will test his limits!

3. Training Stimulates Intellect.

Yes, it is true that dogs are very curious creatures. With exposure to so many unusual smells, sights, and sounds, dogs can't help but want to explore. It's in their nature!

Most dogs have the capacity to be very intelligent. But, they need to be stimulated first, and then they will be motivated to learn. Training is a huge benefit for stimulating your dog's intellect.

4. Training Encourages Inclusion.
The sense of "inclusion" is very important to a dog's security. From the earliest days of being a part of a litter, your dog feels comfortable being a part of the pack. That includes the pack of your household.

You may be the primary dog trainer, but everyone in your family or household should take the time to train your dog. When he receives this undivided attention from everyone, he feels like part of the pack.

5. Training Saves Time.
Another huge benefit of training your dog is that it saves you time. Taking the time to train your dog now, will actually save you time in the long run. For example, if you take the time to train your dog to behave properly inside the house, you will actually be saving time cleaning up mischievous messes that he could create in the future-if he didn't have the training.

Good Morning,  !

Today the topic of online petitions came up again.
They are a waste of time.at best, and usually just phishing
for addresses to send junkmail and spam to. Nobody gives
a hoot about how many names are on an online petition.
They count about as much as comments on a news story.
Good for a chuckle, if some comments are funny, but that's
it.

An online petition to stop Verizon and Sprint from metering
and billing movie pirates and spammers more than they bill you,
is taken about as seriously as a petition to have the outside 
temperature raised. The same applies to any other online
petition.

Have FUN!

Here is one that I re-wrote and shortened to this form a few years ago and that came back today: A guy goes to a girl's house for the first time and she shows him into the living room. She excuses herself to go fix them a couple drinks. As he's standing there he notices a cute little vase on the mantel. He picks it up and as he's looking at it, she walks back in. He says, "What's this?" She says, "Oh, my father's ashes are in there." He turns beet red and says, "Gee, oh...I'm sorry...I..." She continues, "Yeah, he's too lazy to go to the kitchen to get an ashtray."

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ann Re: Petition against metered Internet Dear Webby What do you make of this? Truth or Fiction (I couldn't find it on their site) (Link to a phony petition against metered Internet access) Thanks. Ann Dear Ann Read the small print of your contract with Shaw. Your account has always been metered. You get x number o Gigabytes file transfer included in your contract, and pay extra for anything above that. Same with Telus. Only some of the exorbitantly priced business accounts are unmetered and unlimited. There is nothing wrong with metering. Why should YOU pay for the kid next door downloading two dozen pirated movies every night and sending them to a hundred buddies, or for the spammer across the street? The metering simply ensures that those, who have ridiculously high transfer rates, pay for their usage, instead of their cost getting spread over everybody else's bill, including yours. By the way, the Shaw installer, who was supposed to connect me to Shaw last Friday, and instead went to Drumheller, 100 miles NorthEast from here, and left a door knob hanger at somebody's house there, still has not found Black Diamond. Maybe the big boys told Shaw that Shaw is not allowed in this area. Who knows? Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Store Toiletries in Small Tote Each of our 3 children has a small plastic tote (like the ones to hold cleaning supplies) stored in our hall linen closet to take into the bathroom. They keep all of their toiletries (including combs, medications and toothbrush/ toothpaste) in these totes. I got the idea from my dorm days when we had to hike down the hall to the showers. It really saves room in our small bathroom, and the tote can be ported to the kitchen or downstairs bath if necessary.

Two priests died at the same time and met Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter said, "I'd like to get you guys in now, but our computer's down. You'll have to go back to Earth for about a week, but you can't go back as priests. What'll it be?" The first priest says, "I've always wanted to be an eagle, soaring above the Rocky Mountains." "So be it," says St. Peter, and off flies the first priest. The second priest mulls this over for a moment and asks, "Will any of this week 'count,' St. Peter?" "No, I told you the computer's down. There's no way we can keep track of what you're doing." "In that case," says the second priest, "I've always wanted to be a stud." "So be it" says St. Peter, and the second priest disappears. A week goes by, the computer is fixed, and the Lord tells St. Peter to recall the two priests. "Will you have any trouble locating them?" He asks. "The first one should be easy," says St. Peter. "He's somewhere over the Rockies, flying with the eagles. But the second one could prove to be more difficult." "Why?" asketh the Lord. "He's on a studded snow tire, somewhere in Montana."

Breaking News 

The Washington Post

The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen , Norway .

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.


Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.





Oops! Never mind.

This report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the Associated Press and published in the Washington Post - 88 years ago!

A son and father went to see a doctor since the father was getting very ill. The doctor told the father and son that the father was dying from cancer. The father who was an Irishman, turned to his son and said "Son, even on this gloomy day, its our tradition to drink to health as it is in death; so let's go to the pub and celebrate my demise." Reluctantly, the son followed his father to the local pub. After they left, the son turned to his father and said, "Father, it is not AIDS you are dying from. It is cancer, why did you lie to those men?" The father reply's "Aye, my son, you are right; but I know those guys, and I don't want any of those guys getting close to your mom when I'm gone. I KNOW her rolling pin swing and know she would wind up in jail over it, and then you, poor lad, would be all alone on this sad old world."

"You have had two wishes already," the genie said, "but your second wish was for me to put everything back the way it was before you made your first wish. Thus, you remember nothing, because everything is the way it was before you made any wishes. You now have one wish left." "Okay," said the man, "I don't believe this, but what the heck. I wish I were irresistible to women." "Funny," said the genie as it granted his wish and disappeared forever. "That was your first wish, too!"

I want to apologize to Hank in Alabama. I did by no means
want to imply, that all of Alabama was technologically backward.
I used Alabama as an example of great crontrast between 
hightech and forgotten low-tech islands. 

Those hillbilly areas are by no means more numerous in Alabama
than elsewhere, but because of the very high technology in the
rest of the state, the contrast seems higher.

It is the same here in Canada. 18 Miles away people can get
20 or 100 Mbps and even Gigabit connections, yet the same
ISP can't even find my town. DUH!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Troy Sandifar, 45 in Bradenton, FL Woman spots husband on bank robbery surveillance photo, calls police BRADENTON, Fla. — Police say a man confessed to robbing a bank after his wife saw a surveillance photo on the evening news and alerted authorities. A camera snapped a clear shot of the man with a pony tail and scruffy beard robbing the First Bank in Bradenton Tuesday morning. The robber sprinted down the street clutching money in his fists and got away despite efforts from a K-9 unit and SWAT team. Manatee County Sheriff's officials got their big break Tuesday evening when Afra Sandifar saw a news report about the bank robbery. She called authorities and told them her husband was the robber. That's when 45-year-old Troy Sandifar fled the couple's apartment. Deputies stopped his vehicle but Sandifar refused to get out. They say he ingested what appeared to be rock cocaine before they were able to arrest him. He was taken to the hospital, where authorities say he confessed.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Guinn Re: Printing a small book Dear Webby, I have a problem. I want to print a short document, about ten pages, on 8 1/2 x 11 paper but I need it to be 2 "pages" to the sheet, each side. I would like to print it so that it could be read book style ie all pages in order with no blank pages. I use Open Office Writer per your suggestion. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you, Guinn Dear Guinn You mean like Clickbook does it? Clickbook makes you select one of over 170 formats. In your case, that would be 4 pages per sheet, front and back, folded pocket book. If the book had 450 pages and you wanted to cut and edge glue them with hotmelt glue, then you would select the same, but cut pocket book. Don't worry, it's not alphabetical, it's all nicely sorted into categories. The initial set-up is a bit tedious and takes a few minutes. It makes you print a test page and asks you where on it you see a square or arrow. Then it tells you to drop it straight down into the input tray, without turning or flipping. There are about four steps to that, until it has totally figured out your printer and how you set it up. After that, whenever you print, it does one side of the book, then tells you to drop the entire output stack straight down into the input tray, and it does the back sides, with ALL the numbers matching perfectly. There is a lot of math to that, but all it tells you is: Drop the stack from the output tray straight down into the input tray. In case you don't have an air nailer to shoot staples through the fold, they have a good deal on long reach staplers. That's optional, you don't have to buy their stapler. I have used ClickBook since the days of noisy Dot-Matrix printers, and just moved it from one computer to the next, whenever a computer wore out. As far as the word processor or spreadsheet or PPS or whatever is concerned, you just select ClickBook as the printer, and hit Print. Clickbook then asks you what format you want, you select that and hit OK. That's all there is to it. By the way, you can tell Clickbook to do the page numbering too. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Drain Browned Ground Beef in a Colander When using ground beef cooked for a soup, spaghetti or tacos etc., drain the hamburger through a colander before adding to your recipe. This takes away the extra fat and tastes great, even in chili. By 123helen from Senoia, GA Don't get too fanatic about that! The body needs a bit of fat for energy, otherwise it will scrounge energy producing stuff and/or stash fat for emergencies, which won't happen. If you drain off all the fat and pour it over dry dog food, your dog will be trim and energetic, but you won't be. Share some, but don't give away all of it. You can sprinkle a little bit of flour and/or paprika over it and stir it until the flour has been toasted and is nicely brown. By that time it has absorbed most or all of the fat. Real chefs then carefully pour some water or soup stock onto it and let the steam "explosion" tear apart any flour balls, that may be still present. Use a long hadled ladle for that. Have FUN!

There sure is a huge difference in how the shooting in Arizona is 
reported in the US versus how it is shown in the rest of the world.

In the US it's all about poor Gabby, a two-bit windbag who fought
against the Arizona Law and then in the November election claimed
she was for a stronger federal immigration law (that would try to
do, what the Arizona Law has in it). And of course, the 9 year old,
who was born on 9/11.

In the International press, it's about the assassination of a 
top US Federal Judge for the State of Arizona, barely 72-hours 
after he made a critical ruling against the Obama administrations 
plan to begin the confiscation of their citizen’s private retirement 
and banking accounts in order to stave off their nations 
imminent economic collapse, 
and after having the US Marshals protecting him suddenly removed.

The International press lists the 9 year old, who was born on 9/11,
and Gabby and the other victims as colorful ,innocent bystanders, 
but they do mention that the “handler” of the shooter, described 
as a white male between 40-50 years old with dark hair,
has disappeared without a trace.

And the Social networking Arm of the Democrats is frantically
trying to blame Sarah Palin, which I find rather funny.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Michael A. Davis, 24, in Bellwood, Ill Burger King robbery suspect nabbed when cab doesn't wait Jan 6, 2011 (ELMWOOD PARK) Two men hid in the bathroom of a west suburban Burger King, then robbed employees at knifepoint Wednesday night. One of the men is in custody after the cab he was planning to use for a getaway car did not wait near the scene. Michael A. Davis, 24, of the 300 block of 25th Ave. in Bellwood, was charged with two counts of armed robbery in connection with the incident at the Burger King at 1750 Harlem Ave., according to Elmwood Park police. Davis and another man allegedly entered the restaurant about 15 minutes before the 10 p.m. closing time and hid in a bathroom. A few minutes after closing, they emerged with knives and demanded employees open the safe and get down on the floor. Elmwood Park police officer Carlos Rodriguez, the first to arrive on the scene, said the men stole an undetermined amount of cash and two cell phones. “I was a couple of blocks away when the call came in,” Rodriguez said. “When I pulled up to the scene, the witnesses were outside. “The witnesses said the offenders headed westbound on Bloomingdale,” Rodriguez said. “When the other (departments) arrived, they set up a perimeter and began searching through the yards.” By 10:22 p.m. Elmwood Park officer Nicholas Ramirez had Davis in custody following a foot chase that ended in a parking lot on the 1600 block of Harlem Avenue. Davis allegedly told police he took a taxi from Bellwood and told the driver to wait at Wabansia Avenue and 72nd Court, Deputy Police Chief Frank Fagiano said. “Obviously after 30 minutes, the taxi driver didn’t wait,” Fagiano said. “Officer Ramirez brought the suspect back to the scene, where he was positively identified by the witnesses,” Rodriguez said. Police recovered the stolen cash and phones, which were in a back pack, and a utility knife, Fagiano said. Fagiano said the department is following leads on the second suspect and has turned over the information to the department’s investigations division.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Chuck Re: Wireless laptop Dear Webby, I am taking a long journey into the unknown. As an old man I'd like to communicate both with Fatimah in Syria and my next of kin here. A cell phone is out of the question. So my next choice is a laptop. Having been a pc man I'm now thrust into my first laptop. So here goes my questions. First; as I travel does the laptop automatically pick up a signal, or do you need a service like a cell phone. 10/100/1000 Ethernet, 802.11b/g Wireless 802.11a/b/g/n wireless Which of these two are the better choice? and what service would allow me to go online no matter where I am in my travels? Thank you, cjw Dear Chuck There is not much difference in those specs. All modern laptops will connect to wireless hotspots. The problem is that not all hotspots are free. Some are outrageously expensive! You will need to sign up with an ISP in Syria. Keep in mind that Syria is like Alabama. You have hi-tech and high standard areas right next to very primitive hillbilly areas, and can't generalize from the distance. You can have 20 - 100 Mbps town wide wireless in one town, and be lucky to get 14 Kbps dial-up in the next one. Any modern PC Laptop should do fine, but you yourself should try to get as much experience connecting to hotspots and wireless ISPs as possible, before you go on your trip. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Trade Unwanted Stuff With Friends One person's junk is the next person's treasure. The things you don't use around the house anymore and that wind up in a cupboard or garage, may make someone the happy owner of something they can really enjoy and/or use. And the cost is nothing. My friends and I get together once a year and trade stuff. Anything goes: clothes, dishes and kitchenware, linens, small furniture, knick knacks, etc. I keep a box in the spare bedroom closet for those items I don't care for anymore and know that it will get moved along the next time we have our get-together. The fun part is that we enjoy an afternoon together and come home with "new" stuff that didn't cost a cent. It's double the fun when you see something of yours being enjoyed in your friend's home.

"No need for me to come out to the house," the doctor told the worried caller. "I've checked my files and your uncle isn't really ill at all - he just thinks he's sick." A week later, the doctor telephoned to make sure his diagnosis had been correct. "How's your uncle today?" he asked. "Worse," came the reply. "Now he acts like he's dead."

We had a wicked blizzard today. Snow devils moved down the
whole length of the football field across the street in 1 1/2 seconds.
The wind was 60, gusting to 75, and the Gullible Warming
manifested itself as rather rude chilling. Got another big snow
drift beside the garage, but as long as the tall wheelie bin still
sticks out a bit, I am looking at it as more of a photographic
challenge than a shoveling chore. It is supposed to get clear
and sunny on Tuesday.

Have FUN!

A honeymoon couple is in the Watergate Hotel. The new bride is concerned and asked, "What if the place is still bugged?" The groom says "Hmm... Good point. I'll look for a bug." He looks behind the drapes, behind the pictures, under the rug... "AHA!" he shouts! Sure enough, under the rug was a small disc shaped plate, with four screws. He gets his Swiss army knife, unscrews the screws, throws them and the plate out the window. The next morning, the hotel manager asks the newlyweds "How was your room? How was the service? How was your stay at the Watergate Hotel?" Curious, the groom says, "And why, sir, are you asking me all of these questions?" The hotel manager says "Well, the room UNDER yours complained of the chandelier falling on them!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jonothan Ray Gonsalez, of Box Elder, Montana Man with warrants gives false name during traffic stop - of guy who was also wanted GREAT FALLS, Mont. - Authorities say a man who had three outstanding warrants for his arrest gave officers a false name during a traffic stop — but ended up in custody anyway because that man was also wanted. Court records say that during a traffic stop Monday in Great Falls, Jonothan Ray Gonsalez, of Box Elder, told police that his name was Timothy Michael Koop Jr. Because he looked like a potentially illegal immigrant, it is not politically correct to ask him for ID. Only citizens and tourists get asked for ID. The officer learned a man by that name was wanted in Hill County and arrested him. Police say a search of Gonsalez after his arrest turned up half a gram of methamphetamine in his jacket pocket and he was charged with criminal possession of dangerous drugs. The Great Falls Tribune reports Gonsalez gave his real name on Tuesday, so a charge of issuing a false report to law enforcement was added.

Zeb absolutely hated his wife Susan's dog decided to get rid of him one day by driving him 20 blocks from his home and leaving him at the park. As he was getting home, the dog was walking up the driveway. The next day, he decided to drive the dog 40 blocks away and the same again. Driving back up his driveway, there was the dog! He kept taking the dog further and further and the darn dog would always beat him home. At last, he decided to drive a few miles away, turn right, then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right until he reached what he thought was a safe distance from his home and left the dog there. Hours later, the Zeb called home to Susan: "Susan, is the dog there?" "Yes", the Susan answered..."why do you ask?" Frustrated, Zeb answered: "Send him to fetch me. I'm lost and need directions!"

Winter Follies 

As a trucker stops for a red light, a blonde catches up. She jumps out of her car, runs up to his truck, and knocks on the door.
The trucker lowers the window, and she says 'Hi, my name is Heather and you are losing some of your load.'



The trucker ignores her and proceeds down the street. When the truck stops for another red light, the girl catches up again. She jumps out of her car, runs up and knocks on the door. Again, the trucker lowers the window.
As if they've never spoken, the blonde says brightly, 'Hi my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!'
Shaking his head the trucker ignores her again and continues down the street.
At the third red light, the same thing happens again. At the next light the trucker hurriedly gets out of the truck, and runs back to the blonde.
He knocks on her window, and as she lowers it, he says, 'Hi, my name is Kevin, it's winter in Canada and I'm driving the SALT TRUCK!!!!!!'

I was supposed to go to the bank and the post office today, but
stayed home, because Shaw had promised to come and hook me
up to cable at five times the speed I get now, and at a quarter the 
monthly cost. 

Well, they didn't find the town. When I called them just before

and hung a notice on somebody's door knob, when I was not 
there.

That's 200 km (125 Miles) North-East from here.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Marc Steven Synnestvedt, 39 Utah Bank Robber Unable To Tell Wright From Wrong According to the FBI, Marc Steven Synnestvedt robbed a Salt Lake City bank on New Year’s Eve. Agents arrived at this conclusion after a teller chased the robber out into the parking lot and began fighting with him. During the tussle, the robber’s jacket was pulled off. Inside, investigators discovered a wallet with several pieces of ID bearing Synnestvedt’s name. Before opting to take the money and run, Synnestvedt, 39, allegedly handed a teller a note that read, “GIVE ME ALL THE MONEY NOW OR I WILL KILL YOU, WRIGHT HERE WRIGHT NOW,” according to a criminal complaint
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Harold Re: Wipe CDs Dear Webby, We have to keep the old CD's of some software to prove we didn't skip any upgrades or use pirated copies.

He studied Judaism all semester. Finally, he felt he was ready to take the test and complete the conversion. On the appointed day, he arrived at the Rabbi's office, ready to begin. The Rabbi said, "I'm sorry, but before I give you the test, I must discuss my fee, It's $5,000." "$5,000!" exclaimed Chester, "That's too much money! I am just a poor student and nobody helps me with this. How about $500?" "Congratulations, you pass." said the Rabbi.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to John Finch, 44 in New Castle County, Delaware Drunken burglar gets stuck inside house Jan 6, 1:31 PM (ET) WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Police in Delaware say a man broke into a house, got drunk and couldn't make his way back outside - so he called 911 for help. New Castle County police say 44-year-old John Finch was trapped in the home in part because he'd broken into it before, back in April. That led the homeowner to change the locks so that a key was required - even inside. Police say no one was home when Finch broke in again, through a rear window. He stayed for a few days, drinking three bottles of gin and two bottles of whiskey. When he tried to leave, he was too drunk to climb back out of the window and called 911. He was arrested Wednesday afternoon. Finch now faces charges in both break-ins. Police say he was admitted to a hospital and is still too drunk to make a court appearance.

Norman and his wife Marina live in Michigan. One winter morning while listening to the radio, they hear the announcer say, "We are going to have 3 to 4 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the EVEN numbered side of the street, so that the snowplow can get through." Norman's wife goes out and with much huffing and puffing moves her car. A week later while they are eating breakfast, the radio announcer says, "We are expecting 4 to 5 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the ODD numbered side of the street, so that the snowplow can get through." Norman's wife goes out and moves her car again. The next week, again during breakfast, the radio announcer says "We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park...........", then the electric power goes out. Marina says, "Honey, I don't know what to do." Norman says, "Why don't you just leave it in the garage this time? Until you get your drivers license back, I am not going to buy you any gas anyway."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to burglars in Sacramento, California Car was too small for stolen TV SACRAMENTO (UPI) -- Authorities in California said a trio of would-be TV thieves were foiled by the small size of their intended getaway car. Sacramento police said the burglars took the TV from a Sedley Court home about 4 p.m. PST Sunday and left the large set on the sidewalk when it would not fit in their Lexus, The Sacramento Bee reported . Police said information from a neighbor who witnessed the incident led them to trace the Lexus to a 19-year-old man, whom police did not identify. The man was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property and officers were searching for two alleged accomplices, police said.

Before Bill's daughter went off to college, he took her on a vacation in Colorado. They flew to Denver and rented a car. They visited the Royal Gorge Bridge, which is more than 1000 feet above the Arkansas River. Walking out onto the bridge, he noticed it swaying in the wind. Then a car went past them, and the wood-plank roadway moved beneath their feet. "I don't think I want to drive the car across this bridge," he finally said. "What are you worried about?" his daughter replied. "It's a rental."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Freezing Lemon and Lime Juice My husband and I are big on being frugal. It began out of necessity, but now it is like second nature to us. To save a few cents (and every cent helps) in the kitchen, we buy lemons and limes when they are marked down. We've learned that, in some recipes, a lime works as well or better than a lemon! So we take the fruit home and juice them for future recipes. We put the juice in an ice cube tray or muffin pan. Ice cube trays are good for making a tablespoon or two. Muffin pans will make a bigger amount. Fill the tray, and pop it in the freezer. When they are frozen, take them out of the trays, stack them in a zip lock with a bit of wax paper between each, and put them back in the freezer. The next time a recipe calls for a tablespoon of lemon juice, we just reach for the freezer! And as a bonus, we can put some of the rind in the garbage disposal to freshen it!

John Paul II died and went to heaven. St Peter met him at the gate and said: "John Paul, you did such a wonderful job for us on earth, we'd like to do something special for you. You name it; it's yours." John Paul thought for a moment and said: "I'd like a private audience with the Holy Mother." St Peter told him it would be arranged. On the appointed day, St Peter escorted John Paul to the Holy Mother's sanctuary. John Paul went before Her, knelt, and said: "Holy Mother, I've always looked to You for guidance, and You have granted me peace and serenity through some difficult times. But I have one question that has nagged me during my whole time on earth. In all the paintings that were done of you, and in all the sculptures that were carved of you, you always looked so sad. Why is that?" Mary thought for a moment, pursing her lips. Then she said: "I always wanted a girl."

Good Morning,  !
It's Wednesday, January 5, 2011

Before Christmas a number of people asked about alternatives
to the expensive Avery labels. I answered them personally, but
I think enough people can benefit from that info to warrant 
space here.

Avery and Avery style pre-gummed address labels are easy 
to use, but are often more expensive than the stamp on the 
envelope. That's not such a big deal if you just need a dozen,
but a major expense if there are hundreds of labels required.

You can use Open Office or any of the better word processors
to "mail-merge" an address list or data base or spreadsheet
into a label template. It is actually quite easy to do, once you
get over being scared and get started.

Then you can print the labels onto regular, cheap paper,
cut the paper and either glue the labels on with flour and 
water glue and a basting brush, or tape them on with clear
packing tape. 

The basting brush trick requires a block of wood just a bit
smaller than the labels, and some tweezers. You grab a label
with the tweezers, hold it upside down over the block of wood,
paint it with the glue dipped basting brush, and flip the label
onto the envelope or package. You CAN rub it on with the
back of your hand, but that is usually not required.

After five labels you will start to marvel at your incredible 
speed and how slick the system works.

For cutting the paper you can use a gate or guillotine cutter
like you remember from school, but you get cleaner edges
of you use a cutter that has a little dough cutter wheel on a
slide. Even a straight-edge and a box cutter work fine.

My sister was bemoaning the fact that she had procrastinated cleaning and organizing her house for a long time. Since she was planning to entertain, she felt a lot of pressure to get moving. That afternoon she phoned, sounding glum. "I went to the bookstore," she explained, "and I bought a book on how to get organized. I was all fired up, and decided to clean out all the shelves in the living room. While I was working, I found the same darn book. I had bought it a couple of years ago."

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Chuck Re: Blonde Windows problems Dear Webby, I have a perplexing situation. The pre-school at the church I attend will lose it's server and tech support by the end of this month. They are going to panic and get some expensive know-nothing if you don't come and rescue the day. Can you give me some fodder to tell the church decision makers that going with your services is all they need? They have had problems with the previous tech in getting a program(ProCare) to work with Windows 7. They've bounced around with Microsoft and Procare and nobody can solve the problem. We think it has to do with getting the proper updates installed from Microsoft. Can you give them the total tech support without physically being at their site if they go with your server and support? And what's the cost? I believe you can do it all, but I need to be sure. I can be your liaison if you need somebody with a modicum of intelligence at a computer there. I just need advance warning since I'm a little ways from the church. It'll be a pleasure to finally do some business with you after reading your letter all these years. Thanks, Chuck Dear Chuck We don't use Windoze servers. Strictly UNIX and Linux. I don't recommend or support Blonde Windows (W7). Microsoft does that. Also, I have no idea which ProCare you have problems with. ProCare is a service offered by Apple Computer for use at Apple retail stores And it probably isn't ProCare Carpet Care either. About all I can suggest is that they repent, promise to cut down on the sinning, exorcise Blonde Windows off that machine, and put XP on it. If that is beyond their skills, they can get a brand new DELL Vostro for $299 with XP pre-installed at the factory. It is a business machine, pre-configured for actual work. Industry and commerce don't like Blonde Windows and love that machine. By the way, I don't blame their former tech for telling them to stuff their Blonde Windows where the sun don't shine. If they repent and promise to wend their wicked ways, he may forgive them and come back. Alternately, they COULD get the Take Control of Windows 7 book, and learn how to cope with Blonde Windows. However, that would require some reading. By the way, due to total lack of interest in it, that link for Take Control of Windows 7 comes off tomorrow night. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Free Denim for Short Folks Free denim? We are a short family. It is hard to find the 29 inch length jeans that my husband wears for work and play. I have become an expert at cutting off and hemming the 30 inch to fit. I decided if I had to cut and hem, why not buy the longest length possible 36 inch or longer. I now have extra new denim for patching or other crafts. I also do the same for my own jeans.

An American scientist once visited the offices of the great Nobel Prize-winning physicist, Neils Bohr, in Copenhagen, and was amazed to find that over his desk a horseshoe was nailed to the wall. The American said with a nervous laugh, "Surely you don't believe that horseshoe will bring you good luck, do you, Professor Bohr?" Bohr chuckled. "I believe no such thing, my good friend. Not at all. I am scarcely likely to believe in such foolish nonsense. However, I am told that a horseshoe will bring you good luck whether you believe in it or not!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Louis Cruz, 20, of Conover Street, Freehold Township, NJ Drunk abandoned overturned car, one shoe LAKEWOOD — Police charged Louis Cruz, 20, of Conover Street, Freehold Township, with driving while intoxicated after he abandoned his overturned car — and one sneaker — in a wooded area off Cedar Bridge Avenue early Saturday morning. Brick Police responded to a 6:15 a.m. report of an overturned car on Cedar Bridge Avenue at the Lakewood border. Brick Police officers Thomas Caufield, Scott Smith and Joseph Rossi found the abandoned white 2008 Honda Civic on the south side of the Cedar Bridge Avenue Garden State Parkway entrance ramp, said Lakewood Police Sgt. Steve Allaire. Brick Police found Cruz at 6:51 a.m. walking with one sneaker on Cedar Bridge Avenue near Route 70 in Brick. Cruz told police his car had been stolen and he was been beaten with his shoe during the altercation, Allaire said. Cruz was walking with another man when he was found. The unidentified man was also a passenger in the car, it was later learned, Allaire said. The passenger is not charged. Cruz and the passenger suffered only minor injuries, police said. Lakewood Patrolman Josh Spagnuolo charged Cruz with driving while intoxicated, underage drinking, reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident. Cruz told police he was driving west on Cedar Bridge Avenue when he hit a patch of ice, crossed the lanes and went into the south side of the road where he hit a snow bank overturning the car, Allaire said.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Create Extra Freezer Space To save space and make extra room in my freezer, I remove the supermarket packaging. I cut out the label, and place the product and label, into a clear "snap lock" type sealed bag. The label tells me the item and date. The bag replaced the packaging which I have found to take up about 30-40% of the space. Also I separate bulk items into portion packs, each portion is separately bagged. By using the labeled bag last I always know content details of the separated bags.

A reader asked why we need IP numbers.
For the same reason you need a phone number and street address.
So that you can be called and so that stuff can be sent to you.

Just like the phone numbers or the zip or postal code, each section
of the code narrows it down a bit more, from country to state to town
to street to house. The way the numbers are used, a message gets 
to you in the straightest possible line.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jennifer Marie Riegler, 22, of Accomac, Va. Nude Nut HEBRON, Md. (UPI) -- Police in Maryland said they arrested a woman accused of stripping nude inside a convenience store and sexually harassing others in the shop. The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office said Jennifer Marie Riegler, 22, of Accomac, Va., took off all her clothes shortly before 9 a.m. EST Dec. 18 at the Royal Farms store in Hebron, WBOC-TV, Salisbury, Md., reported. Investigators said Riegler made sexual comments to customers and employees. They said she engaged in sexually suggestive behavior and employees helped her put her clothes back on after she lay down on the floor. Police arrived to take Reigler into custody and found her eating a piece of fruit she had not purchased from the store. Officers said she kicked one of them in the groin and another in the hand while she was being placed under arrest. Reigler was charged with disorderly conduct, indecent exposure, disturbing the peace, theft of less than $100, fourth-degree sex offense, malicious destruction of property valued less than $500 and six counts of second-degree assault. She was jailed in lieu of $25,000 bond. She will not have to worry about rent or heating bills this winter.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Vera P Re: Awkward USB sockets Dear Webby, Why do they put the USB ports at the most awkward spots at the BACK of a computer? I curse those morons every time I have to crawl under my desk with a flashlight to plug something in. Could I drill a hole in the front and glue that silly plug in there? Vera P Dear Vera There is a much better solution. Get yourself a 4, 6, 8 or 10 port USB hub and a 10 foot high speed USB cable, and a little strip of double-sided tape. Plug the cable into the computer and snake it up to the monitor. With 10 feet of cable you should be able to route it in a way so that it doesn't look too messy or get in the way. Then plug the USB hub into it and glue the hub to the side of the monitor in a way so that the OUT ports of the hub are facing towards you. Now you can plug and unplug things without bashing your head against the underside of your desk. Have FUN! DearWebby

A man and a little boy entered a barbershop together. After the man received the full treatment - shave, shampoo, manicure, haircut, etc. - he placed the boy in the chair. "I'm goin' to buy a green tie to wear for the parade," he said. "I'll be back in a few minutes." When the boy's haircut was completed and the man still hadn't returned, the barber said, "Looks like your daddy's forgotten all about you." "That wasn't my daddy," said the boy. "He just walked up, took me by the hand and said, 'Come on, kid, we're gonna get a free haircut!'"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Using Smaller Amounts of Toiletries A dime sized shampoo works great for me, even when my hair is long, and it saves money too. Just put a dime sized plop of shampoo in your hand, rub it, and spread it over your damp hair, and nope, it does not usually lather in your hair. I don't need much water to rinse it either. I have found that using less shampoo like that, my hair looked great and my shampoo bottle lasts for a very long time. By Kas from Rockford, MI You can go a step further yet! Get a pump action dispenser! They are available empty, and some shampoos, soaps and lotions also come in pump action dispensers. Once they are empty, just refill them from big econo size jugs. If your pump action dispenser squirts too much per stroke, you can limit the stroke by wrapping a few turns of coat hanger wire around the pump stem. Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Robert M. Morales, 36, in Mesa, AZ Drunk parked in the middle of the road for a nap A San Tan Valley area man was arrested Christmas morning after officers found him asleep and parked in the middle of the Mesa street, court records state. Mesa Police responded to a call around 1:30 a.m. about a car in the middle of First Avenue near Main Street and Mesa Drive and found Robert M. Morales, 36, asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle. According to court records, Morales' shoes were off, the driver's seat was reclined, the key was in the ignition, and the vehicle was in drive without any lights on. When an officer asked Morales why he was in the middle of the street, he said that "he could sleep wherever he wanted," records state. He told other officers his name was Robert Rios. The officer smelled alcohol on Morales and said his eyes were bloodshot and watery. Morales also slurred his speech and could not keep still, records state. However, he refused to perform any sobriety tests without talking with a lawyer beforehand. Officers found an empty can of Tecate beer on the floor behind the driver's seat and a half-empty bottle of Jägermeister sitting on the front passenger seat, according to records. During a search, police also found a small baggy containing a crystal substance, which later tested positive for methamphetamine, in the front left pocket of Morales's jeans. Throughout the search of his person, police said Morales continually leaned into the vehicle and buckled his knees. When officers had Morales stand, he kicked at them and struck one officer's calf three times. Morales is expected to face charges of possession of a dangerous drug, assault on a law enforcement officer, false reporting to law enforcement, driving under the influence and driving under the influence with drugs on his body. Morales had previous arrests including possession of marijuana, assault, driving with suspended license and making false reports, according to police reports.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Bria Re: How do you take pictures of Northern Lights? Dear Webby You showed some fantastic Northern Lights pictures. When I try to take pictures of them, all I get is black. Bria Dear Bria For a start, you need a fairly good camera, that has a large lens, and that can take time exposures, preferably with click-on click-off. A remote control is nice, but not necessary. You also need a tripod or sand baggie to hold the camera perfectly steady. Once you have all that, set the camera for the biggest apperture it has, the lowest F number. Set the camera up or nestle it into your sand baggie, click it on and step back, wait ten seconds and click it off. Look at the picture and see if the lights of that night need a longer or shorter exposure. If your camera has a hold-down exposure, then you need a remote control, which are getting hard to find. A way around that is to glue a pencil eraser onto the clicker, and put a rubber band around the camera, so that you can put the rubber band over the eraser. Cover the lens, put the rubber band over the eraser, wait a second or two for things to stabilize, and move the hat or whatever you use to cover the lens. After the ten or whatever seconds you choose, cover the lens, and THEN move the rubber band off the clicker. Have FUN! DearWebby

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a 41 year old woman in Callaway, Florida Wife beats hubby with a rock CALLAWAY — A woman was arrested Wednesday morning for beating her husband with a rock, claiming she didn’t want him to smoke a cigarette because of his poor health. “A woman can only take so much,” she told a deputy. According to a Bay County Sheriff’s Office incident report, the couple’s 18-year-old daughter called 9-1-1 about 11:31 a.m. Wednesday when she saw her mother beating her father with a rock. A deputy said that, when they arrived at the scene off North Lakewood Drive, he saw the victim sitting “Indian fashion” on the ground in front of the residence; he was hunched over with his hands over his head, trying to protect himself. His wife was standing behind him. She kicked him in the hip and was using a rock to hit him in the head, the report said. A deputy told the 41-year-old woman to get off her husband a few times, but she continued to strike him and scream at him, telling him “to give her the cigarettes,” the report said. The man, age 51, had cuts and bruises, including a bleeding laceration on the top of his right wrist, the report said. Both husband and wife told deputies they had been suffering with the flu recently and had not felt well. The night before, they got into an argument and the woman scratched her husband’s face, the report said. When he mentioned going outside to smoke a cigarette that morning, the wife became angry and told him “he did not need to be smoking since he is sick,” according to the report. She followed him outside and began to argue with him, then jumped on him and began hitting him in the head with “a small ceramic bird,” the report said. She grabbed other items to hit him, finally picking up a rock. The man refused treatment by EMS. He said “he knew how to take care of himself,” the report said. The woman was charged with aggravated battery domestic violence. She said she had been dealing with “a lot of (expletive)” for some time and “a woman can only take so much,” the report said. She said she was upset because he had the flu and she told him not to smoke, but he went outside and smoked anyway. She added, “A person can only take so much before they snap,” the report said. Told what she was being charged with, she responded, “Yeah, I hit him with the rock,” according to the report. The rock was submitted into evidence.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ellen Re: How difficult are postcard sites? Dear Webby I loved getting all those gorgeous postcards for Christmas and New Year. How difficult is it to make and run a postcard site? I learned HTML from that link on the left side in one day and can put together a recipe page faster than writing it down by hand. So, what is all involved? Ellen Dear Ellen For people, who don't run screaming and sniveling to hide behind their mother's apron, when they hear HTML mentioned, it's really easy. Most of it is done with pre-made templates, that you dress up and decorate. Not a big deal at all. Where you do need a bit of basic HTML is for putting in the names of your card pictures. As you probably found out, pictures are easy and nothing to freak out over. The templates and the service of storing, sending and delivering the cards is not free any longer.We used to have a Free Basic service, but that just created unfair competition to people, who put in some honest work to build big sites. Since last summer the PRO service is $12 a month or $96 per year. That works out to 26 cents per day. That seems to be just enough to keep Millions of kids on hotmail from stealing your thunder, and your visitors. Have FUN! DearWebby

A Russian cosmonaut has an emergency during his reentry into earth's atmosphere and his space craft crash lands in the Australian bush, way out in the middle of nowhere.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Pack Up Christmas For New Years New Year's Christmas decorations usually make me a little sad. So this year I have decided to make a new tradition. Throughout the week between Christmas and New Year's, we are taking down some of the decorations we have throughout our home, and ceremoniously storing them away. On New Year's Eve we will slowly take down our tree, counting down as we go! This would be great for children to participate in. We obviously don't go out and party on New Year's Eve. We usually stay at home with some food trays, and watch the festivities on TV. This way, we are "prepared" for the New Year to come! :D By AHA! from Sterling, PA http://www.thriftyfun.com/ Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.

Just before a soldier made his first parachute jump, his sergeant reminded him, "Count to ten and pull the first rip cord. If it snarls, pull the second rip cord for the auxiliary chute. After you land, our truck will pick you up." The paratrooper took a deep breath and jumped. He counted to ten, and pulled the first cord. Nothing happened. He pulled the second cord. Again, nothing happened. As he careened crazily earthward, he said to himself: "Man. Nothing goes right. I'll bet that truck won't be there either!" TWACK he bombed into a huge manure pile. Just as he burrowed his way out and saw daylight again, the head of his buddy popped out of the manure a few feet away and in his slow Texan drawl sang out: "...an one ahs TAN!" ------------------- When I was a kid, I heard that story about Swiss paratroopers. The only difference was that instead of a waiting truck, it was a waiting bicycle, and the slow talking buddy was from Bern, the Swiss capital.

Barbie, a waitress, decided to put her matchmaking skills to the test with our mutual friend Mike. She figured that Sandy, another friend who seemed to have much in common with Mike, would be an ideal date. One day Mike came into the restaurant when Sandy was also there. Barbie dragged Mike over to Sandy's table and introduced the two. Then she watched as Mike put his arm around the young woman and said in his best mock-seductive voice, "Helloooo, Sandy. What's a nice girl like you doing in a place like this?" "You guys know each other?" Barbie asked. "We sure do," said Mike. "She's my sister."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Pastor Sandy McGriff, 52, in Dallas, Texas Pastor caught in Christmas Eve break-in A Dallas pastor accused of stealing more than $10,000 worth of fur coats, designer purses and electronics from a church member's home on Christmas Eve says that she's really innocent. "I thought I was helping," Sandy McGriff, 52, told reporters by way of explaining why she was found at the home of Serita Agnew by police last week. McGriff, pastor of the Church of the Living God, spent part of Christmas Day in jail, and was released on $26,000 bail. Police responded to a neighbor's 911 call around 5:30 pm on Friday, according to The Dallas Morning news. Officers found a broken kitchen window and saw McGriff carrying two fur coats out of the house. They also found a laptop and three purses in McGriff's Jaguar. From the Morning News' initial report: McGriff told officers that a friend had sent her to pick up her coats and that her arm was injured because she could not find a key under the doormat and had to break in through the window. Police called the resident, Serita Agnew, who told them she had not given anyone permission to go into her house or take her property.

An effusive client brought a litter of golden-retriever puppies to my veterinary clinic for inoculations and worming. She loved them so much, she couldn't keep from remarking about their cute habits. As the look-alike pups squirmed over and under one another in their box, I realized it would be difficult to tell the treated ones from the rest. I turned on the water faucet, wet my fingers, and moistened each dog's head when I had finished. After the fourth puppy, I noticed my hitherto talkative client had grown silent. As I sprinkled the last pup's head, the woman leaned forward and whispered, "I never realized they had to be baptized."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to 3 teenagers in Ipswitch, Australia Dogooders freaking about teens matressing on river IPSWICH, Australia (UPI) -- Australian police said three teenagers were charged with public nuisance after attempting to float down a river on air mattresses. Police said two 17-year-olds and an 18-year-old were arrested after getting onto the flood augmented Bremer River in Ipswich and attempting to float to Brisbane, a distance of more than 18 miles, on inflatable bed mattresses, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported. Investigators said they received 10 emergency calls about the teens, who were captured about 9 miles from where they started. Police said the teens were arrested for the "foolish and dangerous" stunt and will appear in court on public nuisance charges. Whenever the drought ends, like it just did, the Bremer River has enough water, so that the 18 mile journey can be completed all on water. They couldn't call out the Navy, even though the teens appeared to be enjoying themselves, because the water in the river is not deep enough for the navy, however, some officers apparently waded out and captured and arrested them. Unlike NorthAmerica, where tubing, mattressing and white-water rafting is popular, in that part of Australia it seems to be too much like having fun and is frowned upon.

Thank you JRB!

Quite a few asked me how to make Silver Water. 
You need some reasonably pure silver, not regular coins. 
Yes, I know, the silver price quadrupled since the election,
but you don't need much, just a few micrograms. A foot
of very fine wire will last you a lifetime.

You can get fine silver wire from for as little as $3 per foot from
http://www.ccsilver.com/silver/superfines.html

Then you need some melted snow or distilled water. Snow is 
cheap these days, and if you are in Florida, fridge frost
will do fine too.

Here is the high-tech method for connecting everything.


Let it run 5 to 15 minutes, or until the water has a light
golden sheen. That's all there is to it.

Silver Water is a powerful antibiotic and works great, 
if you use it only when needed, when your body's immune 
system needs a boost or helping hand. 

If you use it constantly as a preventative medicine, it 
could make your immune system lazy.
Also, if abused by taking it daily for decades, the silver 
can accumulate under the skin and make it look grey. 

Just taking it a few times a year does not have any 
side effects.

Have FUN!

Things were rather slow so Bobbie, the reporter for the local newspaper, went to the vocational school and visited each classroom. But things were rather slow there too. In Tailoring nobody had sown through any interesting body parts, just the instructor had sown her sleve to a student's workpiece again, but she already had published a similar picture. No blood in carpentry. Nobody had parked any engine on their foot in automotive, and the guy with the transmission on his chest under the Edsel had not moved since last month. As a last resort, Bobby went to Hospitality to see if their new French chef had at least some freebie lunch. No such luck. All the students were busy stirring some gluey gunk in huge soup pots with big wooden spoons. Bobbie asked the chef if it was a French tradition to use wooden spoons for stirring. "No", he replied. "Management deezisson." Bobby asked why management dared to interfere with his superior skills.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Joseph Andrew Hoffman, 25 of Vancouver, Wash. Christmas Reveler Reports Himself To Iowa City Police For Being Too Drunk To Drive Published: December 28, 2010 Iowa City police say a 25-year-old man called 911 to report a drunken driver: himself. According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, police say Francisco Castro called the emergency number around 8:30 on Christmas morning. Officers found Castro sitting in the driver's seat of a running vehicle. Police say Castro told officers that he called 911 because he thought he was too drunk to drive. A follow-up test showed his blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit. Unfortunately, even if he wasn't driving but just warming up, they will throw the book at him. He was in care and control of a running vehicle while drunk. He shouldhave warmed up in a cab.

A store manager overheard a clerk saying to a customer, "No, ma'am, we haven't had any for some weeks now, and it doesn't look like there will be any more." Alarmed by what was being said, the manager rushed over to the customer who was walking out the door and said, "That isn't true, ma'am. Of course, we'll have some soon. In fact, we placed an order for it a couple of weeks ago." Then the manager drew the clerk aside and growled, "Never, never, never, never say we don't have something. If we don't have it, say we ordered it and it's on its way. Now, what was it she asked about?" The clerk smiled and said... "Muggings in the store."

Thank you Louis!

"Swine flu pandemic sweeping through England..."
Yeah, sure. I take those headlines with a big grain of salt. 
It's flu season in a cold and clammy country, same as every
year. The old Romans complained about that too, and after 
a few years decided to go home to sunny Italy.

And naturally, people, who had their immune system weakened
by flu shots, will be the first to catch and spread the new
and improved designer-flu of the year.

Not me. I'm busy, no time for flu.
When I notice the first sign of a flu trying to build up to
nuisance level, an occasional slight tingling at the edges 
of the lips, I dig out the real silver (100% pure bank siver,
not regular coins or cutlery), melt some snow or get 
distilled water, and make a big mug of silver water. 
One mug of that, a second one half a day later, 
and flu season is usually over for me.

If I am run down from too much work and not enough sun, 
or if I didn't catch the flu at the onset, or if I am traveling
and have no access to my silver, then I use the Hillbilly
method. I clean out my ears really well, spray some WD40
into them 5 minutes before a shower, and once they are
good and dry again, use an eye dropper or a bottle cap
to pour 5 - 6 drops of Hydrogen Peroxide into each ear.

Quite unlike from when you pour Hydrogen peroxide onto an
infected cut, it does not hurt or burn in the ears. It feels
cool. Apparently the flu bugs nest in the tube, that runs from
the ear to the back of the mouth. Wiping them out in their
nest gives your body a chance to cope with and wipe out 
what is left of them. 

Naturally, bringing up your vitamin levels by pigging out on
a big salad helps too. So does sunshine. The more you can
stack the deck in your favor, the faster you will beat the flu.

Have FUN!

The tower replied, "It makes a lot of difference. If it is an American Airlines Flight, it is 3 o'clock. If it is an Air Force, it is 1500 hours. If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells. If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3. If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it's Thursday afternoon. If it is Coast Guard, it's still light outside. If it's a Cessna: It's four hours of golfing light left. If it's a Piper: Pub's open."

The CIA lost track of one of its agents, and called in one of their top spy hunters. The CIA boss says, "All I can tell you is that his name is Murphy and that he's somewhere in Ireland. If you think you've located him, tell him the code words, 'The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning.' If it's really him, he'll answer, 'Yes, and for mist at noon as well.'" So the spy hunter goes to Ireland and stops in a bar in Dublin. He says to the bartender: "Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for a guy named Murphy." The bartender replies, "You're going to have to be more specific because, around here, there are lots of guys named Murphy. There's Murphy the Baker, who runs the pastry shop on the next block. There's Murphy the Banker, who's president of our local savings bank. There's Murphy the Blacksmith, who works at the stables. And, as a matter of fact, my name is Murphy, too." Hearing this, the spy hunter figures he might as well try the code words on the bartender, so he says, "The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning." The bartender replies, "Oh, you're looking for Murphy the Spy. He used to live on the top floor in 205, right down the street on the left, but he went into hiding. " No more was forthcoming from the bartender until the spyhunter paid for a round. "It's going to be misty around noon as well."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Joseph Andrew Hoffman, 25 of Vancouver, Wash. $450K in drugs found on man passed out in taxi Chicago, Ill A frustrated cabdriver unwittingly delivered a man carrying a bag that was allegedly filled with nearly a half-million dollars in drugs to officers at the Rogers Park District police station over the weekend. The driver, who asked not to be named, said he picked up a fare in the Lincoln Park neighborhood on Saturday afternoon and took the man to an address in Rogers Park. The passenger, later identified by police as Joseph Andrew Hoffman, 25, chatted on his phone for about half the trip but was unconscious by the time they arrived at the destination, the cabdriver said. The cabdriver said he tried to rouse the man for about 10 minutes before driving to the police station. Police searched the man's bag and found bottles of a "clear, crystalline substance" connected by wires to a "power source," which together apparently amounted to a miniature methamphetamine lab, according to a police report. The street value of the drugs in the man's bag was nearly $450,000, the police report said. Hoffman, of Vancouver, Wash., was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston. Police said he consented to a search of a residence in the 800 block of West Dakin Street, where officers found a gallon jug filled with suspected GHB, the so-called date rape drug; small bags of marijuana; $1,401 in cash; and other drug paraphernalia, the report said. Hoffman was charged with six felony counts and on Sunday was ordered held on $100,000 bail by a Cook County judge. The cab that brought Hoffman to police was searched by a Chicago Fire Department hazardous materials team. Police didn't tell him what they had found on the passenger when they returned the car, the cabbie said. "They said they found a lot of bad stuff. My only concern was to collect my fare," the cabdriver said Sunday. "It was going on and on, and I didn't even get my full fare."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Lists for Planning My husband teases me because I have inherited a family trait of making lists for everything! It sure helps when we go shopping, so I know exactly what we need for recipes, etc. Sometimes I bring photocopies of recipes I will be baking, so that if I decide to double the recipes, I will know exactly how much to buy. Before a big event or trip, I always make separate lists for "Things To Do", "Things To Buy", and "Things That Must Be Packed". I don't know what I would do without my lists. I make copies of all of the lists, I put these lists in separate large zipped freezer bags, and put one set of copies folded individually in my purse, so they stay in my purse, and are handy for shopping trips. I find making a list of "Things That Must Be Packed" handy when you are done your trip and don't want to forget any items at the Hotel or relatives house.

From this distance, the air and rail and freeway traffic problems
in Europe seem rather funny. 
Record snow falls? No, not really. Just gradually ramping up to
what was the norm in the 60's and 70's.

Well, it couldn't be the increase in traffic, since that would 
be helping to blow the snow off the runways and roads. 
Also, last time I checked, there is no shortage of salt in the
ocean, and many underdeveloped countries are selling salt
at record low prices.

Turns out that in the 60's they relied on snow ploughs and
snow blowers. During the warm ripple, they switched to salt.
Now they are finding out the hard way, that salt does not
work well enough when it is really cold.

Have FUN!

Sitting behind a couple of nuns at the football game, three men decided to badger the nuns in an effort, to get them to move. In a very loud voice, the first guy said, "I think I'm going to move to Utah. There are only 100 nuns living there." The second guy spoke up and said, "Well, I want to go to Montana, as there are only 50 nuns living there." The third guy spoke up and said, "I want to go to Idaho; there are only 25 nuns living there." One of the nuns turned around, looked at the men, and calmly asked, "Why don't you go to hell? There aren't any nuns there!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a drunk from St Andrews, Manitoba Drunk snowmobiler falls after taunting RCMP Last Updated: Friday, December 24, 2010 | 10:30 AM CST An intoxicated man was arrested after falling off his snowmobile in front of RCMP in rural Manitoba. The 35-year-old man was taunting officers, swearing at them and spinning his snowmobile around in circles in a hotel parking lot in Petersfield, Man., at about 12:30 a.m. Friday morning. The man was so intoxicated that he eventually fell off of his machine directly in front of police while doing circles around them. He was arrested for impaired operation of a motor vehicle and his snowmobile was impounded and towed. The man, from the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews, was later released from custody, but they impounded his 2011 Polaris and he is scheduled to appear in provincial court in Selkirk in February. Very dumb idea. The RCMP not only have the fastest snowmobiles in the country, many of them confiscated from smart-asses, but they have airborne back-up.

Thanks to Rolly for this story: Two men came to my house to install some new floor covering in the kitchen. Once they had moved the stove and refrigerator out of the way, it was not long before the job was done... As they were getting ready to leave, I asked them to put the heavy appliances back in place. The two men demanded $45 for this service, stating it was not in their contract. I really had no choice but to pay them. As soon as they left, however, the doorbell rang. It was the two men. They asked me to move my car, which was blocking their van. I told them my minimum fee for moving vehicles: $90. $15 extra if it was a rush job.

The 26th used to be St Walmart's Day, with people lining up 
outside the store for the Boxing Day specials, truckloads of

Not this year, I hear. No specials. No extra staff either. 
Maybe they will try it again after the next election.

From Bill: You might appreciate this, since it's similar to a blurb in today's email: I was driving my daughter and grandchildren from California to Mississippi. It was late at night and we pulled into a town in the Texas panhandle looking for a motel. The first had no vacancies, nor did the second, or the third. As I climbed back into the car, my oldest granddaughter sighed and said, "This is just like Mary and Joseph!" We got a good laugh, and found a room at the fourth motel. It was a pretty cheap place. I thought to myself, "It's still too much like Mary and Joseph!" Love your jokes! Bill

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a ballon pilot in Midvale, Utah Balloon takes Santa on wild ride after pilot falls out Date: Saturday Dec. 25, 2010 6:43 AM ET MIDVALE, Utah — If only Santa was as good with hot air balloons as with reindeer sleighs! Santa took a wild ride Christmas Eve when his balloon took off without a pilot. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Santa was tossing candy to kids from the balloon during a school fundraiser when the craft landed too hard and the pilot tumbled out. That left Santa alone and the lighter balloon shot back into the air. Police Sgt. Torin Chambers says Santa travelled 1.7 miles (3 kilometres) across the Utah town of Midvale before the craft lost enough air to come down. A crowd at the school tailed the balloon through town and helped hold it down once it landed.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ramona Re: Plug-In strips Der Webby I needed more electrical outlets for all the gadgets that connect to the laptop, so I got a second plug strip and plugged that into the first one. Everything worked fine, but when a friend of mine saw that, he freaked out and told me I would burn the house down by doing that. Both plug strips have surge protectors and little overload breakers, and the wall socket is also protected with a breaker at the panel. His explanation didn't make sense to me but he was dead serious. Is there anything I don't know about and that I should worry about ? Ramona Dear Ramona Except for your choice of friends, what you are doing is perfectly OK and absolutely nothing to worry about. The power used by all those gadgets doesn't amount to much. Most likely all of them together, including your laptop, use less than a quarter of what a hair dryer would use. The breaker at the panel will ensure that you don't overload anything. Have FUN!

A young woman visiting her new doctor for the first time found herself alone in a small waiting room. She began undressing nervously, preparing herself for the upcoming examination. Just as she draped the last of her garments over the back of a chair, a light rap sounded on the door and the doctor walked in. Coming to an abrupt halt, he looked his patient up and down carefully. "Miss Jones," he said, "it seems quite obvious that until today you have never had an eye exam. Looks like I have to re-arrange my afternoon schedule and postpone some patients. "

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Grant Ison, 21 in Oxford, Ohio Treejacking DECEMBER 22--A drunken Ohio college student is facing a disorderly conduct rap for attempting to chop down a 30-foot pine tree that he intended to use as a Christmas tree. Grant Ison, a 21-year-old student, was collared last Sunday at 2:15 AM after his harebrained attempt to bring down the tree, which was in an alley off an Oxford street. When confronted by a cop--who asked Ison whether he was aware that the tree was 30 feet tall--the student replied, “I was going to just cut it down then cut off the top.” Ison lives around the corner from where he attempted his urban lumberjack act. When an Oxford Police Department officer wondered why he would try such a thing, Ison “replied that he was pretty hammered right now.” Not surprisingly, the patrolman “detected an odor of alcoholic beverage emitting from his breath,” according to a police report. Ison explained that he had been using an ax, but a friend ran off with it when police arrived on the scene of the attempted treejacking. Cops noted that a second tree, height unspecified, had also been damaged during Ison’s early morning tree hunt.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Christmas "Morning" With Grandchildren This is for all grandparents that miss the grandchildren on Christmas morning. My husband and I have done this for years. With everyone so busy now, grandparent time is often the last on the list. So, we arrange for an overnight with the grandchildren, sometimes before Christmas and sometimes it works out to be January. It gives the parents a chance to shop for the kids or have a night to themselves. We pretend that it's Christmas Eve and bake cookies and watch Christmas shows. We hang up our stockings. Then Christmas morning, we have the thrill of watching them open our gifts and those the grandchildren have for us. Then instead of a regular Christmas Dinner, we have a lunch like Poutine Fries, and mini homemade pizzas with ice cream sundaes with all the toppings. The kids love it, no matter if it's before or after Christmas. We, of course, go right to bed as soon as the parents arrive to pick them up, LOL. It is so worth it and its allowed us to be there for Christmas morning every year. Hope you like the idea, it's a private special time for us that we hope to continue for many years.
