Good Morning,  !
It's Sunday, June 11

The nice weather did not last. 
It rained most of the day. We have pretty good drainage here,
but I do feel sorry for the people in the South, who have to
cope with all the water that flows their way.

Have FUN!

People who say you're just as old as you feel are all wrong, fortunately. --- Russell Baker You are as old as how and whome you feel. --- Socratex
One day a housework-challenged husband decided to wash his own sweatshirt. Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to his wife, "What setting do I use on the washing machine?" "It depends," she replied. "What does it say on your shirt?" He yelled back, "Chicago Bears" Naturally she replied, "Cold water only gentle cycle."

Roy was going to bed the other night when Carla told him that he had left the light on in the shed. She could see it from the bedroom window. As Roy looked for himself, he saw that there were people in the shed taking things. He phoned the police, but they told him that no one was in this area to help at this time, but they would send someone over as soon as they were available, probably in the morning. Roy said OK, hung up, and waited one minute, then phoned the police back. "Hello. I just called you a minute ago because of a burglary in progress in my shed in the back yard of 234 Oak street. Well, you don't have to worry about them now. I'm shooting them all. If somebody does come over, I'll be in the shed, just in case one of those crooks isn't quite dead and needs another shot." Within five minutes there were a dozen police cars surrounding the shed, and a SWAT team, the works. Of course, they caught the burglars red-handed. One of the officers later asked Roy: "I thought you said that you'd shot them!" Roy replied, "I thought you said there was nobody available! And if you had not shown up, I would have had to!"

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Elsinore Re: Connectivity Dear Webby, I read that the average connection speed for home users in Korea is 20 Gbps. Is that just propaganda? If it is true, what can we do to get the same speed here? Elsinore Dear Elsinore It is true indeed, for South Korea. North Korea, just like the US, is not in the top 10 for HOME connectivity speed. South Korea uses mostly Cable and wireless, and almost no Internet over phone lines. They don't have to cope with the huge distances we have in North America, and their fiber and cable networks are fairly new. About all you can do is move to an area, where you can get TV cable. With TV-cable 20 Gbps is not a big deal, except when you talk to the ISP. They want you to pay a lot more for that, even though the difference between 2 and 20 Gbps is just a software setting, not different hardware. As long as there is no real competition, they charge whatever they can get away with. Have FUN! DearWebby

A priest and a rabbi operated a church and a synagogue across the street from each other. Since their schedules intertwined, they decided to go in together to buy a car. After the purchase, they drove it home and parked it on the street between them. A few minutes later, the rabbi looked out and saw the priest sprinkling water on their new car. It didn't need a wash, so he hurried out and asked the priest what he was doing. "I'm blessing it," the priest replied. The rabbi considered this a moment, then went back inside the synagogue. He reappeared a moment later with a hacksaw, walked over to the back of the car and cut off two inches of the tailpipe.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Stuart Feltham, 23, from Swindon, Wiltshire, England Brit 'flasher' was set on fire by Greek woman Stuart Feltham, 23, from Swindon, Wiltshire, suffered second degree burns after 26-year-old student Marina Fanouraki allegedly splashed Sambuca, a flammable alcoholic drink at his bare front and set fire to him with a lighter, when he flashed and groped her. The woman will appear in court today in the city of Iraklion, in northern Crete, charged with assault. According to reports, she said she was acting in self-defence after the man exposed himself to a number of women in a bar, and then groped her against her wishes. The story has made national headlines in Greece, where some have hailed the woman as a heroine. A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We can confirm that in the early hours of Tuesday a 23-year-old British male national was assaulted in Crete. "We understand he suffered burns on his chest and abdomen." Stuart Feltham did not stick around to appear in court and fled back to England, where he lives with his parents. His father claims the poor innocent boy suffered a totally unprovoked attack and did not flash and grope anybody.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Eddie Re: What is needed to phone over the net? Hi Mr Webby; I have been having some serious issues with AT&T's U-verse. I have had already 10 tech's out to my house because of no picture on my tv, freezing up, resetting the box every time it rains, and to top it off I have found out that I am at the end loop as they call it..... which means that everyone on the block in front of us who has subscribed to this u-verse is drawing the same signal off of the old telephone line. So now this is also why I am having issues. But I think I know how to deal with them..... anyways this will be my new email address... and I had asked you a question about online telephone... I mean I saw the magic jack, but there were a lot of mixed reviews... and Vonage.... well I don't know much about this.... and now with "Google Talk" can you shed some new light on these questions.....? Thank you for your great news letter.... keep em coming. Eddie Dear Eddie First you need to get your line fixed, so that you have reliable TV reception. Until then, everything else is a waste of time and money. AT&T U-Verse has the AT&T version of Vonage or Magic Jack built in, and for $89 a month, you can theoretically use it. However, it sounds like the lines in your area are hopelessly overloaded, and that method will never work properly for you. Try some company, that uses TV Cable instead of ancient and inadequate phone lines. The problems, when it rains, are a definite indicator that your lines are old and get water crackle. You will not even get reliable high speed Internet over those lines, never mind TV and all that other promised stuff. Those old crackly lines are just barely good enough for low speed dial-up.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to the US DOE's Office of Inspector General Edication Dept and OIG worse than Gestapo 15 heavily armed members of a SWAT team smashed the door of Kenneth Wright and his three kids (3,7 and 11 years old) in a pre-dawn surpise raid. They did not ring the door bell or knock on the door, they smashed the door, grabbed him by the neck, threw him on the lawn and knelt on him, then handcuffed him and put him into a patrol car for six hours. A neighbor reported: ""They surrounded the house; it was like a task force of SWAT team," she told the station. "They all had guns. They dragged him out in his boxer shorts, threw him to the ground and handcuffed him." Kenneth Wright has no criminal record, is not involved with any criminal or terrorist organization, had no dope, no booze and no weapons. He eventually found out, that they were actually looking for his estranged ex-wife, who had left years ago. They claimed there was a student loan issue. It is unknown, why it took them six hours to search the tiny house, but they did not find anything, that they could use to charge Wright with. Wright did not know anything about any student loans and thinks it may be something his ex wife did, after she left and moved elsewhere.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Trixie Re: Not happy with Windows 7 Dear Webby, I just bought a laptop with windows 7 on it. I am in several graphic groups and using windows live mail is a real pain. Nothing shows up as it should. Did you at some time mention that there are still XP programs that could be bought?? I would appreciate any info you could give me as I really hate windows 7. Thanks, Trixie Dear Trixie That is why I recommend buying XP, or at least W7+ with XP pre-installed at the factory. Your laptop can still be converted to XP. Contact Jerome at Spiritscents and haggle out a deal. If you just bought it, you may have a 30 day money back guarantee, especially if you paid for it with PayPal or a credit card. Then you could add the $50 - $70 that w7 PLUS costs. Yes, they give away W7 free with all new machines, but if you want XP, they charge you $50 - $70 penalty for that, and STILL claim "Another W7 sold!" All Windows software will run on XP. XP is backward compatible all the way to DOS and clay tablets. By the way, you CAN use Eudora on W7, not just XP and previous versions of Windows. Microsoft is in a snit about Eudora being so much better than the newest one they have, that they won't allow you to make it your default email program, but it works just fine. Just start it manually with a task bar icon. Eudora has been precise, reliable and predictable since 1991. If you install Eudora, let me know, and I will send you a registration code. Have FUN!

Skype got murdered

Skype got murdered

Microsoft lets FSB (formerly KGB) listen in on Skype.
Nikolai Pryanishnikov, the head of Microsoft Russia says 
he'd be happy to share the encryption code of newly 
acquired Skype with Russia's security services.

You may have noticed a sleazy forced "update" in the last
few days. Skype crashed and came back updating, without
giving you a choice to agree or deny. That seems to be part
of the murder of Skype.

Those two moves totally murdered any trust in Skype.
It still works for sending pictures of your pets and chatting
with Gramma, but if you are involved with Human Rights or
Democracy, it's time to move on over to Google Talk. 
It is very unlikely,that Google will sell out.

We may see some super-encryption add-ons for Skype
appearing in the next few months, from people trying to
revive trust in Skype. 

That $8.5 Billion dollar panic grab, just to make sure 
Google or Cisco or Citrix or Oracle couldn't buy it, 
did not make sense. Skype would take over thousand years
to pay back that much money. Now we know where THAT wind
is blowing from.

I will still use Skype for tech suport and to chat with my dad,
but all communication to Eastern Block countries, and anything
of a Human Rights nature, has shifted to Google Talk.

Google Talk is similar to Skype, but takes a bit of getting used
to it, since there are so many ways to customize it for your 
own purpose. I still have a lot to learn about it.

Have FUN!

A man buys a parrot from a pet shop. The parrot is highly intelligent but all he ever does is swear. Day and night the parrot shouts out obscene words and phrases until one day the man decides to teach him a lesson. He is standing in the kitchen with the parrot, constantly swearing, seated on his shoulder. The man tells the parrot that if he doesn`t stop swearing he is going to open the door of his freezer and throw him in. The parrot laughs and tells him that he wouldn`t dare. The parrot ignores the threat and sure enough, the man opens his freezer, grabs the bird by its neck, throws him inside and slams it shut. The bird bangs constantly on the door asking to be let out and promises never to swear again. After about 5 minutes the man agrees to give the bird 1 more chance and places him back on his shoulder. After a few minutes the parrot has warmed up again and asks the man, "What did the chicken do?"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Reuse Backpack and School Supplies In most areas of the US, school will be over soon. The last thing on everyone's mind right now is the next school year. But this is a relatively painless tip that doesn't take much time and will surely save you money. When the kids come home on the last day of school, don't just put the backpacks in the closet. Go ahead and empty them out; tossing out the short pencils, used workbooks, etc. If there are usable art or other school supplies, put them in a safe place for next year. At my son's school, he had to purchase his own art class supplies and I reused the same paint colors and magic markers because of their light use. If you have a supply list for next year, put that in a safe place as well so you will have it when the back to school sales start. Finally, inspect the backpacks. Can they be used again another year? I'm not sure where the practice of a new backpack every year started but if you start out with a sturdy one they can be used for many years. Toss it in the washer and give it a good cleaning. When dry, hang it back up and it will be ready and waiting for you at the end of summer.

After a long and serious operation, Lena ended up in a coma. Try as they might, the doctors just couldn't bring her out of it. When her husband Ralph came into the intensive care unit to see her, the doctors gave him the bad news. "We just can't wake her. It doesn't look good I'm afraid," the doctor told Ralph in a quiet somber voice. Ralph looked at Lena and with a soft trembling voice said, "But doctor, she's so young. She's only 48." "37," came the weak reply from Lena.

Yes, I know that alphabet is not the one devised by Morse. 
And it is not the Boy Scout Alphabet either. 
Officially, if you want to be really picky, it is 
"The NATO Phonetic Alphabet Mnemonic".




Because that is too big a mouthful and too difficult to spell
correctly twice in a row, and because the Girl Guides did
not want the Boy Scouts to get any credit for it, good ol 
Morse's name was wrongly tagged onto it.

With Morse's actual dot-dash mnemonic alphabet, which
I learned as a kid, it used the "short vowels" like a, e, i, u
for dots and the "long vowel" o for the dashes.

In that version, ATOM was used for the letter A, and with
a short and a long vowel, you got DOT - DASH.

E, the most used letter, was EIS in German and EGG in English,
just a short vowel, hence just one dot.

Uniform for U was adopted the same by NATO. It is still correct:
Dot Dot Dash

Personally, I prefer the old version, where the vowels indicated
dots or dashes, but I am not going to lose any sleep over it.

Oh, the reason I made it that small is so that you can print it
and glue it somewhere near where your phone is.If you do 
want it larger, click through the picture to the large version. 
You know the drill by now!

The 4th child said, "I'm Greek Orthodox, and this is an icon of my patron saint." The 5th child said, "I'm Southern Baptist, and this is my casserole dish."

Hi Chuck, that's a "Spanish Dagger", actually closer to asperagus or agave than a cactus. There are many different variations. The one you got, that blooms this time of year, is probably the one called Yucca Gloriosa or something very similar. I love the dry flower / fruit stems for waking sticks in the desert. They are incredibly light weight and surprisingly strong. Have FUN! DearWebby

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ron Re: Convert PDF Dear Webby I need to convert some pdf files to WORD. I thought open office used to do that but since I upgraded open office I cannot open pdf files from it. Lots of programs to convert to pdf but not the other way. Got any good ideas (thats a laugh, I know you do) to help me out. Thanks as always. RON P Dear Ron PDF files are basically intercepted print jobs, a graphical image. To convert them to text, you have to scan that image with an OCR program. Adobe made many hundreds of Billions by making that as difficult as possible, in order to provide unalterable invoices and forms and Books. There ARE some programs nowadays, that let you edit PDF files, but I don't think there are any free ones, that will let you convert a PDF file to WORD. Since I never need them in WORD format, I just use PDF-Exchange to edit them when neded, and save them again as PDF. The nediting is not really true editing, but more a commenting or mark-up or form filling, but that suits me fine. If I have to fix a typo or change a name in a birth certificate, then it is easier to do a screen capture and use a graphics program for doing that, because the overlay / annotation method of PDF Exchange is much sharper than the original, and the editing / annotating / form filling is just as obvious as the editing on a certain birth certificate, that received a lot of publicity last month. If WORD is just an intermediate step, try ignoring that and look for a one step converter from PDF to for example Palm's PDB. There are lots of those listed. Have FUN DearWebby

An older couple had a son, who was still living at home. They were a little worried, as the son was still unable to decide about his future career, so they decided to do a small test. They took a ten dollar bill, a bible, and a bottle of whiskey, and put them on the front hall table, then they hid in the nearby closet, pretending they were not at home. The father told his wife, "If our son takes the money, he will be a businessman, if he takes the bible, he will be a priest, but if he takes the bottle of whiskey, I'm afraid our son will be a drunkard." So, the couple waited nervously. Peeping through the keyhole they saw their son arrive. He saw the note they had left. Then, he took the ten dollar bill, looked at it against the light, and slid it in his pocket. After that, he took the bible, flipped through it, to see if any stashed money fell out, and tucked it under his arm. Finally, he grabbed the bottle, opened it, and took an appreciative sip to be assured of the quality. Then he left for his room, carrying all three items. The father slapped his forehead, and said, "It's even worse than I could ever have imagined. Our son is going to be a politician!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Sandra Uher, 54, in Elgin, Ill Woman facing 6th DUI came to court drunk An Elgin woman charged with DUI six times had her bail revoked this week after police say she came to court intoxicated. Authorities say 54-year-old Sandra Uher had been free on $100,000 when she was taken into custody. Uher's last DUI charge was in March, when she ran a stop sign at the corner of Shales Parkway and Summit Street in Elgin and crashed into another car. Police said her blood alcohol limit was nearly four times the legal limit, measuring at .30. After that conviction, Uher was released from jail after posting $10,000 of her $100,000 bond. But after her intoxicated court appearance, her bail was revoked. She still owes the remaining $90,000. The Daily Herald reports she's been sent to Cermak Hospital at Cook County Jail for evaluation. During her most recent DUI arrest in March, police say Uher failed a field sobriety test and had a preliminary blood-alcohol content of .30, nearly four times the legal limit for drivers. She was also driving on a revoked license. Uher has DUI convictions dating back to 1997. If convicted of the latest offense, she faces between six and 30 years in prison.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Robert Shreeves, 40, of Princeton, Missouri Busted for rafting down the river and having fun in clear view of envious spoilsports SIOUX CITY - A Missouri man was arrested Thursday for allegedly floating on a kiddie pool down the Missouri River. Sioux City Police Sgt. Mike Post said Robert Shreeves, 40, was observed floating down the river at 9:54 p.m. on a small inflatable pool that was approximately six inches tall with two floats on the side. He said the raft was approximately 3.5 by 5.5 feet. "The individual apparently launched this raft upcurrent and drifted down the river," Post said. Shreeves, of Princeton, Mo., was arrested by the Sioux City Police Department when he docked at the boat ramp on Larsen Park Road for a misdemeanor charge of public intoxication. An official with the Woodbury County Jail said Friday that Shreeves had been released for time served. Authorities said Thursday night they had received numerous calls from people who observed a man floating down the river in a raft. One dispatcher said the people kept calling in because they thought he was having fun. The Missouri River was at 28.34 feet on Thursday night, and there was no danger of getting hung up on a sand bar. Shreeves was not in any danger and he did not endanger anybody else.

I often hear: "I bet you use some fancy, super fast computer!"
Well, not fancy, but it IS fast. It is 4 years old, and was the 
cheapest I could get from DELL at the time. 

I just got a call from them today, reminding me, that the 
4 year warranty is running out, if I don't renew it.

Yes, it is old, but it runs circles around the office laptop,
a 2010 W7, and I am in no rush to put this machine out
to pasture. 

Quad Core machines with 12 GB RAM machines, ready for
Windows 8, have come down below $600. By Christmas
"old fashioned" W7 machines will be below $300.
I am quite confident, that tis machine will still be fine
till next year.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Bank Of America in Collier County, Florida Homeowner Forecloses On Bank Collier County, Florida -- Have you heard the one about a homeowner foreclosing on a bank? Well, it has happened in Florida and involves a North Carolina based bank. Instead of Bank of America foreclosing on some Florida homeowner, the homeowners had sheriff's deputies foreclose on the bank. It started five months ago when Bank of America filed foreclosure papers on the home of a couple, who didn't owe a dime on their home. The couple said they paid cash for the house. The case went to court and the homeowners were able to prove they didn't owe Bank of America anything on the house. In fact, it was proven that the couple never even had a mortgage bill to pay. A Collier County Judge agreed and after the hearing, Bank of America was ordered, by the court to pay the legal fees of the homeowners', Maurenn Nyergers and her husband. The Judge said the bank wrongfully tried to foreclose on the Nyergers' house. So, how did it end with bank being foreclosed on? After more than 5 months of the judge's ruling, the bank still hadn't paid the legal fees, and the homeowner's attorney did exactly what the bank tried to do to the homeowners. He seized the bank's assets. "They've ignored our calls, ignored our letters, legally this is the next step to get my clients compensated, " attorney Todd Allen told CBS. Sheriff's deputies, movers, and the Nyergers' attorney went to the bank and foreclosed on it. The attorney gave instructions to to remove desks, computers, copiers, filing cabinets and any cash in the teller's drawers. After about an hour of being locked out of the bank, the bank manager handed the attorney a check for the legal fees. He still had to pay the movers to get their stuff back.

My aunt's neighbor in New York had a beautiful black cat, named Felix, who spent his days outside and came indoors at night. One cool October evening, he disappeared. The neighbor searched for him in vain for several days. The following spring,, however, Felix reappeared, looking healthy and clean. She figured he's been out sowing his wild oats. Everything was back to normal until that autumn, when Felix disappeared again. The next spring, he returned. Perplexed, my aunt's friend began asking neighbors for clues. Finally, she rang the bell of an older couple who lived down the street. "A black cat?" the woman said. "Oh, yes! My husband and I hated to see him out in the cold, so we bought a cat carrier. We take him to Florida with us every winter."

When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick e-mail. Unable to find the scrap of paper on which he had written her e-mail address, he did his best to type it in from memory. Unfortunately, he missed one letter, and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher's wife, whose husband had passed away only the day before. When the grieving widow checked her e-mail, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.

The cold and wet and late spring sure loaded up the fields
and also my lawn, like a slingshot. One neighbor, a few houses
north from me, has a huge lawn front an back. When he finishs 
mowing in the back, he starts all over again in the front. Maybe
next year he won't fertilize it quite that much?

Mine is not that bad. For one thing, I don't fertilize the lawn, 
just to have to cut it that much more often. And I use a 26"
wide mower and set it quite low. I tuned up the engine for
more speed and torque, and added a spring to the drive
control bar. That makes it move faster and without me having
to push. Unless you make that modification,  you have to supply
half the forward push! Now it pulls me along quite smartly.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Tina S. Gonzales, 33 in Naples, FL Birthday party ends with a bite in the arm, not cake An East Naples woman is accused of biting her neighbor in the arm and throwing cake at her head after an all day birthday celebration for her son took place on Monday. Tina S. Gonzales, 33, of the 2900 block of Francis Avenue, was arrested Monday by Collier deputies at home on a felony charge of burglary with assault or battery. She also faces a disorderly intoxication charge. According to a Collier County Sheriff’s Office report: After several hours of drinking hard liquor and beer at her son’s birthday party, Gonzales decided to enter her neighbor’s apartment without permission. She was asked to leave numerous times. Gonzales threw a piece of her son’s birthday cake, hitting her neighbor in the head. She then punched her on the side of the head, causing a small laceration. Gonzales pinned her on the ground, grabbed her hair and proceeded to bite her on the inside of the arm, leaving large bite marks. Deputies said that the bite marks matched the teeth and gaps of Gonzales. Other subjects that were present either had no teeth at all or only a few. Her neighbor stated that her and Gonzales had been having several disputes prior to the incident.

While doctors usually die from cancer, heart disease or mysterious ailments, the people in those high electromagnetic environments seem to die mostly of traffic accidents or old age. However, once somebody believes in the danger of electromagnetic radiation pollution, you can't reason with them, and trying to use logic on them just makes them hostile. Just humor them and play along. Usually those people are so clueless that putting plastic childproofers onto electrical outlets "to stop the electric radiation from leaking out" will make them feel better. In the mid 90's at the peak of the electromagnetic radiation scare period, I sold a good number of protective monitor screens. They were just black metal mesh mosquito screens made up for me by the local window glazing company. I added a ground wire to them and a little alligator clip. Those screens reduced the glare and reflection off the monitor,and thereby reduced eye strain and headaches, but the people who bought them swore their headaches went away because they shielded them from electro- magnetic radiation.

A prospective juror was being questioned by the District Attorney for a murder trial that had been in all the papers. "If the defendant were to be convicted tomorrow, could you kill him for his crime ?" "Well, no." replied the man. "But I could do it on Saturday, if that would be OK."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Kitty Litter Bucket for Kitchen Compost I always wanted to compost, a kitchen composter was easiest to start with but expensive. I noticed our kitty litter container (hard plastic) was a perfect size and has a lid and handle. It fits under the sink and has been working great. By krisanthemum from Pataskala, OH http://www.thriftyfun.com/ http://www.thriftyfun.com/ Please keep in mind that the composting process produces highly explosive methane. Methane is a nice fuel, when it is handled correctly, but fatal, if you let it sneak up on you. Indoor composters absolutely need to be vented outside! For example, a peatmoss composting toilet needs a vacuum cleaner hose for an outside vent, and never smells. A kitchen garbage can size container needs a half inch hose or pipe. There is no pressure involved, so you should not go with a smaller hose. You simply need a flue for the explosive gases to get vented outside. It is best to attach the hose to the lid, so that you can easily haul the container outside, when it gets full or too heavy to shake up. Yes, you HAVE to shake it up or turn it over once a day, and occasionally add a handful of peat moss and a slice of dry bread. Otherwise the stuff rots instead of composting. If you spot mold or if it looks wet, add peat moss and turn it more frequently. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.

This one is apparently true: A noted psychiatrist was a guest at a National Organization for Women gathering, and at a reception/cocktail party beforehand, his hostess naturally broached the subject in which the doctor was most at ease. "Would you mind telling me, Doctor," she asked, "how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?" "Nothing is easier," he replied. "You ask him a simple question which everyone should answer with no trouble. If he hesitates, that puts you on the track." "What sort of question?" "Well, you might ask him, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?' The woman thought a moment, then said with a nervous laugh, "You wouldn't happen to have another example, would you? I must confess I don't know much about history."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Douglas Ellison of Lee, NH Carjacker claims to be from '5th dimension' Wednesday, June 1, 2011 PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A convicted felon who claimed he was from the 'fifth dimension' has been ordered held on $25,000 cash bail for allegedly using a hammer during a carjacking and then leading police on a multi-town chase along Interstate 95.

Dimitris from Atlantic inkjet sent me a help request, that he 
had received, that might quaify for a bonehead award.

"I have filled my toner with inkjet ink and tried printing but only 
got blanks. I realised i should have used toner after what happened. 
Has this damaged my printer? what should i do now? i emptied the 
ink and left the toner out to dry.. 
Please let me know if my printer and toner are damaged?"
 
I doubt that any of you would squirt liquid bulk ink into a 
toner cartridge, but just in case you might be confused, 
never mix liquid ink and dry toner. That person ruined that 
cartridge, and mostlikely also the printer.

With Laser pinters your cost per page is 1/3 to 1/5 compared
to inkjet printers, but refilling laser toner cartridges is not just
a matter of dumping more toner into the cartridge. You also 
have to replace the extrortion chip, that the printer expects.
Without that chip, the printer won't "recognize" the cartridge.

The little chip probably costs about 49 cents to produce, but
IBM, HP, DELL, etc. who own the chip plants in China, want 
to make a certain amount per cartridge. Expect to pay around 
$10 per chip.

Personally, I just order ready to use cartridges from 
Atlantic inkjet .com, and let
them match colors and chips. The price is about the same anyway.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Steven Long, 23, in South Daytona, Florida Burglar carries 59" TV on bicycle SOUTH DAYTONA, Fla., June 1 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they arrested a suspected burglar spotted carrying a 59-inch TV between his lap and the handlebars of his bicycle. Investigators said Steven Long, 23, was seen carrying the television set on his bike at about 4:20 a.m. Sunday in South Daytona and he fled when he spotted the officers, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Wednesday. Long, who police said eventually abandoned the bike and the TV to flee on foot, was caught in a back yard and placed under arrest. Residents of a nearby home identified the television as having been stolen along with other items by someone who pried open the side door to their garage. Police said the property was returned to the residents, but the TV, worth more than $2,000, was damaged beyond repair. Long told officers the TV had been given to him by a friend to settle a debt but investigators said the story did not check out and he was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and felony theft.

It worked fine in Apr the last time I transferred off some pics but not in May when I tried again. 2) My pics are on cdrw disks that say 700Mb.

Dear Sharon All CD drives do fail sooner or later. A 4 GB SD chip holds almost 6 times as much as a CD. You can also use the cheap 2 GB chips. They are compatible with more different devices than the 4 GB chips. You just drag the files to the chip, as if it was another folder on the computer. No burning or finalizing required. Befoer you switch over to SD chips, get a suitable cookie tin to store them in. They don't really need a lot of protection, but because they are small, they tend to get lost easily, if you don't have a designated place for them. Have FUN DearWebby

For months he had been her devoted admirer. Now, at long last, he had collected up sufficient courage to ask her the most momentous of all questions: "There are quite a lot of advantages to being a bachelor," he began, "but there comes a time when one longs for the companionship of another being -- a being who will regard one as perfect, as an idol; whom one can treat as one's absolute own; who will be kind and faithful when times are hard; who will share one's joys and sorrows." To his delight he saw a sympathetic gleam in her eyes. Then she nodded in agreement. Finally, she responded, "I think its a great idea! Can I help you choose which puppy to buy?"

Would you believe that nobody was interested in what will be
in Windows 8, except for one person in Redmond, who said
that nobody tells him nothing.

According to the British press, the locals are quite enthralled
by Obama and his circus at the G20 Summit.



Harper by contrast seems rather frugal. Instead of with eight 
planes, he apparently arrived on a regular WestJet flight, 
no doubt flying on AirMiles points, and had his wife along
to iron his good shirt. 

Because Harper is not likely to promise Billions to countries, 
who did not listen to his advice, he is not scheduled as a 
top ten speaker. After all, Canada has less pollution per 
square mile than any other country, a balanced budget, 
no deficit, no long term debt, and did not bail out any banks. 
Obviously he must have been cheating and listening 
to his own advice! That really annoys those folks..

Harper will probably leave early. His wife and her mother
usually ride their horses in the parade here, and that is
this Saturday.

Bangladeshi Woman Takes Attacker's Penis To Police

by AFP

DHAKA, Bangladesh - A 40-year-old Bangladeshi woman cut off a man's penis during an alleged attempted rape and took it to a police station as evidence, police in a remote part of the country said Monday.

The woman, a married mother of three, was attacked Saturday night while she was sleeping in her shanty in Jhalakathi district, some 120 miles south of Dhaka, officers said.

"As he tried to rape her, the lady cut his penis off with a knife. She then wrapped up the penis in a piece of polythene and brought it to the Jhalakathi police station as evidence of the crime," police chief Abul Khaer said.

The woman filed a case accusing the man -- who is also 40 and a married father of five -- of attempted rape, saying that he harassed her for six months.

The severed penis was kept at the police station, and the rape suspect was undergoing treatment in the hospital.

"We shall arrest him once his condition gets better," Khaer added.

A friend in China asked me if the strong rethoric by Chinese 
politicians about the US getting Osama Bin Laden, and that 
China just gave Pakistan 50 brand new jet fighters, is going 
to cause friction with the US.

Not likely. Those jets had probably been ordered by Gadafi,
but he can't receive them right now. To keep the industry
busy, they have to get rid of those jets somehow.

As far as the US is concerned, don't worry. The Sheikh will
apologize.

Walmart, Sears, HP, IBM, DELL, etc. will continue buying 
their goods in China, and Microsoft, seems to have shifted 
their program development to China.

Remember Maxthon? IE6 turned out to be just like it.
W8 is being tested in China right now.

If here is any interest in what W8 is going to be about,
I'll write about it tomorrow, but I have a hunch, most of you
are just lusting after the machines, that will be powerful
enough to run W8.

A criminal who had been convicted of several murders and robbery, was sentenced to death by the judge of the court. It was decided that the criminal will be shot by a firing squad on a particular day. On that very day, the weather was very foul. It rained cats and dogs. There was not sufficient light to see anything clearly. But duty is duty so the captain of the squad along with his five soldiers took the criminal and started walking to the spot. On the way the criminal told the Captain, "See,what a weather! I am not afraid of death, but this day is not suitable for dying. What do you think?" "Truly, the weather is very foul", the Captain replied, "But you are fortunate.You are only going one way. Just think how soaked we are going to get! We have to walk all the way back!".

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Gerald Sisneros, 28 in Santa Fe, NM Man tried to remove curb paint SANTA FE, N.M. (UPI) -- Police in New Mexico said they arrested a man who attempted to remove yellow paint from the curb by his house and shattered the windshield of a patrol car. Santa Fe police said Gerald Sisneros used paint remover on the curb outside his home because he disagreed with the neighborhood association's decision to have it painted as a no-parking zone, KRQE-TV, Albuquerque, reported Thursday. Police said Sisneros threw a brick at an arriving patrol car and shattered the vehicle's windshield. Officers said he continued to throw items, including a horseshoe that made contact with an officer. Investigators said the suspect barricaded himself in his house and police were able to subdue him with a stun gun after about 30 minutes.

I have a question that may sound dumb, but is there a way to get my letter from you to open in Google Chrome rather than Internet Explorer? IE is so darn slow lately, and Chrome is so fast, it's really becoming frustrating. Thanks, and please, stay well. Bonnie Dear Bonnie Just make Chrome your default browser for HTML and HTM files. Access the Tools menu by clicking on the “wrench” icon positioned in the upper right hand corner of Chrome. Click “Options”. This will open Google Chrome Options window. Click on the “Basics” tab if it is not selected. In the “Default browser” section click on the button that says “Make Google Chrome my default browser”. Once you click this button, a green text will be displayed saying “The default browser is currently Google Chrome”. Click “Close” to exit Google Chrome Options window The "Close" acts like "Apply and OK". Don't escape out of that screen. Have FUN DearWebby

A southern woman was rushing to get ready for church. She ran frantically throughout her house, tore through her closet, threw her clothes over her head and ran out the door to her car. When she arrived at the church, she saw a man coming towards her. "Tell - me," she panted in her southern drawl, "is - m - ass out?" "Nope," the man replied, but yer hat's on crooked."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make "Lasagna" From Leftover Macaroni Leftover macaroni with tomato sauce can be transformed to lasagna (instead of using lasagna noodles). Just add some fresh vegetables and cheese. Put everything on an oiled baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees F. After it's ready put some more cheese on top and serve.

This one is a real classic: Mary noticed her husband standing on the bathroom scale, sucking in his stomach. She commented, "I don't think that's going to help." "Sure it will." Bob said. "It's the only way I can see the numbers." --------- With my scale I have to bend down to be able to read the little numbers. I had originally bought it many years ago as a cheap postage scale and never bothered weighing myself. Now, though, I have to keep track of not only blood sugar, but also my weight. One doctor told me to expect to gain 30 pounds or more due to ending the smoking, and another one told me that the walking and exercising would convert 15 pounds of lightweight blubber into 30 pounds of heavy muscle, and a nurse told me that if I follow the diabetes diet very closely, I would lose weight. The heart doctor, who did the operation, told me to cut out salt, and that the daily fluctuations in weight reflected how much water was retained between cells due to salt. To figure out what is going on, I enter the numbers into a spreadsheet every morning. The spreadsheet shows the results in a neat graph. I can see the daily fluctuations due to salt. Obviously I don't gain or loose two pounds in a day. So that is water retention due to salt. I also notice a slight and steady creep upward. That is probably partly due to not smoking any more, and since I don't need larger pants, it must also be due to the conversion of fat into muscle. Looking at the graph sure seems to help staying on target!

Happy Memorial Day!

Sunday was very nice and warm, but it sure cooled off after the
sun set, and now it is around freezing. Being close to snow 
covered mountains does seem to have some drawbacks!

I did get the lawn cut, front and back. The rainy week sure
made it and the dandylions grow like crazy the moment the
rains stopped. Especially the back lawn was a sea of bright 
yellow.

A man owned a small farm in South Georgia. The Wage and Hour Department claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent to interview him. "You just give me a list of your employees and tell me how much you pay them." "All right," said the farmer. "I have a hired man. Been with me for three years. I pay him $600 a week, plus room and board. I have a cook. She's been here six months. She gets $500 a week plus room and board." "Anybody else?" asked the agent as he scribbled on a note pad. "Yeah," the farmer said. "There's a half-wit here. Works about eighteen hours a day. I pay him ten dollars a week and give him tobacco." "A ha!" the agent roared. "I want to talk to that half-wit!" "You ARE talkin' to him," said the farmer.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Bradley Furchak,29, of Millsboro, Delaware Napping burglar flees with beer in hand LONG NECK, Del. -- A Delaware burglar is facing charges after being caught napping in a home and fleeing with a beer in hand. Delaware State Police say a 63-year-old woman in Long Neck woke up to find her front door open and someone sleeping on her couch. The homeowner told the man she would be calling police. The man ran out with a beer -- one of several he apparently consumed at the house. Upon arrival, state troopers found that the man had cut a screen on the woman’s porch to get into the house. Police say a state trooper later found 29-year-old Bradley Furchak of Millsboro walking along a road, drinking the beer. Furchak is charged with burglary, theft, drug and alcohol charges.

While digging a shaft into the German homeland, German scientists discovered small pieces of copper at 50 meters. After studying these pieces for a long time, Germany announced that the ancient Germans 25,000 years ago had a nationwide telephone network. Naturally, the British government was not that easily impressed. The British ordered their own scientists to dig even deeper. At a depth of 100 meters, they discovered small pieces of glass. Soon the British announced that the ancient Brits 35,000 years ago already had a nationwide fiber net. Israeli scientists were outraged. They dug 50, 100, and 200 meters underground, but found absolutely nothing. The Israelis concluded that the ancient Hebrews 55,000 years ago used bio-degradable cellphones.

"That's irritation," he said. He picked up the phone again, dialled the same number, and asked for Bill a second time. "No, there's no one here called Bill. Go away.

Political Correctness 

Sometimes you are encouraged about our country's future when you see something like this.

Specifically, there is an annual contest at Texas A&M University calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term.

This year's term was: Political Correctness

The winner wrote:

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

A lot of people asked me about the confusion at Microsoft, their
CEO Ballmer announcing Windows 8 to be ready next year, 
with "Windows 8 slates, tablets, PCs, a variety of different 
form factors", and official spokespersons claiming that
"Ballmer may have mis-spoke and Microsoft is looking 
forward to the next generation of Windows 7-based hardware."

Yeah, right. W7 is not really loved any more than VISTA was.
Industry and Commerce are hanging on to XP machines and 
threatening to migrate to Linux, if they can't get W7+ with
XP pre-installed. Sure people bitch about it, but in the end, 
they pay the extra $70 penalty for using XP.

It's not really a bad deal. You get W7 free, on shrink-wrapped 
beer coasters, and pay $70 for XP, less than when XP was 
still for sale openly.

As for Windows 8, all I know is that it takes a 4 GHz dual 
processor and 8 GB of RAM. Imagine how fast XP will fly 
on a machine built for W8 !  Yeehaw!!!!!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Myra mays, 22, in Bradenton, FL Shoplifter Goes On Violent Rampage After Being Asked For Receipt This is a textbook example of how not to behave when asked for your receipt at a store's exit. According to the Bradenton, Florida police, 22 year old Myra Mays tried to leave a Walmart with 43 items she hadn't paid for, worth a total of $211. When asked for her receipt, she went on a destructive rampage, causing more than $1,000 worth of damage to merchandise. She also punched and spat on store employees, and hit a manager with a bar stool from inside her cart. She made her way into the parking lot, where she began ramming carts into cars, then spitting on and punching employees. When the cops arrived, she chucked her cell phone at them. She also spit on and kicked a cruiser when she was placed in the back seat. She was examined by medics when she arrived at the Manatee County Jail. That's when she admitted to ingesting pills of unknown origin. She also barfed all over the place. Police officers discovered marijuana in her purse, and she has been charged with, among other things, aggravated assault and battery.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Brian Re: RSS or Newsletter Dear Webby, What is better, RSS or a newsletter? This consultant told us to give up our newsletter, and instead focus on RSS and Social Media for our marketing. What is your opinion? Actually, I don't really understand RSS. Brian Dear Brian Put that consultant on commission. Tie his fee to the results you get by following his advice. I have a hunch he will leave rather suddenly. Newsletters, just like newspapers, focus on having new and fresh content every day. RSS is based on new content much less frequently, but being obnoxious about it and lighting up an alert on your desktop, whenever there is an update. RSS works fine for home schooling, where a teacher can alert the kids about new assignments ready for downloading. In the business world most people unsubscribe from most RSS alerts in a month or two, but remain subscribed to newsletters. For example, I have a choice of getting RSS alerts from NASA, or their emailed newsletter. I unsubscribed from their RSS many years ago, but still get their newsletter. I quietly filter it into the NASA box, and read it, when I have time or need to know something. Unless you are in an authority position, like a teacher or probation officer, RSS might be convenient for YOU, but rarely for your cutomers or potential customers. Re Social Media: Lots of fun for times, when you are on hold on the phone. You can amuse your choir and your friends, but don't expect a lot of new clients, if any. Since you are more or less expected to have a page on FaceBook now, just like you were expected to have one on MySpace a few years ago, it is usually best to delegate that. Have FUN DearWebby

Still raining. They evacuated the campground down by the
river. That sure reminded me of a flooded campground in
Nanaimo in 1970.

After arriving in New York had hitchhiked up to Montreal 
and then westward from there. Even though I had paired up
with a girl from L.A., who was not nearly as naive and 
innocent as I was, people delighted in scaring us with all
kinds of stories. 

In Winnipeg we got a pup tent in exchange for me mowing 
a huge lawn. Then people scared us about rattle snakes crawling
into tents and into sleeping bags. So we bought an orange tarp
big enough to be a floor and one and a half  foot high walls 
for the tent, after we sewed it all on. We just folded the corners 
and did not cut them.

After getting to the end of the continent we took the ferry to
Victoria, trying to get my education papers accredited.
After that, we hitchiked north to Nanaimo and stayed at the
camp ground overnight.

It was a rather noisy night in spite of the rain. Lots of 
yelling and commotion all night. Since it was still raining
in the morning, Mary and me were in no hurry to get up,
but when we did, we sure got a surprise!

The campground was flooded and the water was half way 
up the sides of the orange anti-snake "tub", even though
I had picked a high spot just from habit.

Some people had built camp fires on top of picnic benches
and were trying to dry their clothes, and there was thick
smoke and fog wafting between the trees. The general mood
was not cheerful at all.

We traipsed around barefoot and in shorts and it took us
almost until noon, until we had everything packed up without
getting anything soaked. The trick was suspending our
packsacks from trees and loading the stuff from the tent
into them.

Even though we were reasonably dry, we were ny no means
warm and comfortable, and we were quite happy to get onto
a ferry and flee back to the mainland.

Have FUN!

At most universities some students operate a "bank" of term papers and other assignments. Nowadays you just buy a photocopy, but when I went to University you rented a hand typed copy for $5, and got $4 back if the number of smudges and beer stains had not increased noticeably. If it didn't come back or looked too badly abused, the $4 went to whoever typed up a fresh copy from the original. Officially the renter was just supposed to use the rented papers "for inspiration and as an example". Yeah, right. A similar system is in operation at the unnamed New England university where this story happened: There were papers to suit all needs and as it would look odd if an undistinguished student suddenly handed in a brilliant essay, there were papers for an A grade, B grade and C grade. A student who had spent the weekend on pursuits other than his assignment, went to the "bank" and as his course was a standard one he took out a paper for an inconspicious C, retyped it and handed the work in. In due course he received it back with the professor's comments "I wrote this paper myself twenty years ago. I always thought it should have had an A, and now I am glad to give it one!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes toEli Hutchins, 24, Lowell, Maine Naked man crashes truck into house, tenant fights him off with hammer (the rear end of his trucks looks better than him) South Berwick Police say a man crashed his truck into an apartment building Wednesday night, got out - while naked - and started fighting with a man he didn't even know in the building. Police say it started when 24-year-old Eli Hutchins got into a fight with his lover at an apartment complex in South Berwick, then took his truck and rammed it into the building, but police say that Hutchins drove into the apartment of someone else whom he doesn't know. Still, the South Berwick police chief says Hutchins fought with the tenant of the apartment, all while naked. The chief says that tenant started hitting the naked suspect in the head with a hammer to defend himself. Police showed up and arrested Hutchins immediately; they say he was quite obviously on drugs. The tenant and a 7-year-old child were in the building at the time of the impact, but no one was hurt. Hutchins is facing several charges, including assault and operating under the influence.

Coach Morris was excited that his team was apparently about to receive national recognition in this famous sports magazine. As a matter of fact, he was so excited that he cut himself with his razor. Covered with blood and shaving lather and running downstairs to the phone, he tripped and fell down the stairs. Finally, bleeding and bruised, he made it to the phone and breathlessly said, "Hello, Speedy Morris it is!?" The voice on the other end asked, "Is this Speedy Morris"? "Yes, yes!" he replied excitedly. Then the voice continued, "Mr. Morris, for just Ninety-seven cents an issue, we can give you a ten-year subscription to Sports Illustrated!" His response was "No!", but not quite limited to that one word.

Had to go for an eye exam today. Because of my diabetes, 
there was a bunch of extra testing, and three different 
types of eye dilator drugs put into the eyes. Instead of 
wearing off in an hour or so, like these drops normally 
used to do, my vision is still blurry now. 

If you need to get that done, expect to need a driver for the
rest of the day, and don't plan on doing any reading or 
writing. It's a good time to do the floors, though.

Fayetteville police officers arrived at the scene of the melee in the Cambridge Arms apartments about 12:45 a.m. and found two men lying on the pavement of the parking lot with multiple stab and gunshot wounds. Police found a group of the woman's relatives walking in the parking lot covered in blood. One of the accused robbers was critically injured in the attack and remained on life support Monday, police said. The other was treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center and released. He was not charged. Maria Consuelo Ramirez Flores, a longtime friend who knew the victim's family when they were still in El Salvador, said through a translator Monday that robberies, break-ins and other crimes have been persistent problems in the area. The Hispanic community has gotten fed up, and some members decided to take matters into their own hands Monday morning, she said. According to police, 22-year-old Raufeal Waddy, of the 3900 block of Village Drive, and 26-year-old Terrel Battle, of the 1100 block of Clark Street, were armed with a handgun when they tried to rob Maria Guevara, 47, of her purse. One of the suspects, a known Blood gang member, was wearing a red bandana across his face when he approached Guevara, according to police. Guevara began screaming, alerting from 10 to 15 family members and friends who live in the same building, police spokesman Lt. Chris Davis said. They rushed out, and one of the alleged robbers fired a shot at them, he said. "The round passed through the clothing of Alex Echeverria, but failed to strike his body," Davis said. Guevara's family members then ran after the two robbers, caught them and disarmed them during a struggle, Davis said. "Both suspects were shot during the initial struggle, with the suspect's gun, and then the family severely beat, stabbed and cut both robbers," Davis said. No charges have been filed yet.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Renee Re: Print Selection Dear Webby, I like to print the tech advice. How can I do that without coping the whole letter. I highlight the paragraphs and try to cut copy etc. and it prints the whole letter. Renee Dear Renee Printing a highlighted section straight out of email quite often does not work. After highlighting a section, hit CTRL C then jump to a text editor or word processor, or spreadsheet, or even your email. Put your cursor where you want the copied stuff, then hit CTRL V to paste. If you have a 5 button mouse, then of couse just use the copy and paste buttons on the mouse. Once you have pasted your selection, you can print that. Have FUN DearWebby

After being laid off, Judie papered the town with her resume. Days passed, and she hadn't received a single phone call. She decided to take a closer look at the copies her husband had printed at his real estate office. Judie quickly realized that he hadn't put blank paper into the machine. At the bottom of each copy, written in bold type, was a common real estate disclaimer: "The information contained herein, while deemed to be accurate, is not guaranteed." -------------------------- While that would cause a chuckle to other job seekers, to an employer that says: "This dingbat is not only incompetent, but she will steal OUR paper to apply for her next resume!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Garden Mailbox for Gardening Tools I use a hand painted decorated mailbox for storing hand garden tools and garden gloves outside. We recently put up a new mailbox and I wanted to recycle the old box. I spray painted the box black. Then I free hand painted flowers, etc. on the box sides, front and back. I stenciled "Sherrye's Garden Tools" on the top. I then sprayed the box with polyethylene to make it weather resistant as it will be sitting on the back porch. I already had all the supplies on hand so it only cost me my time. I will put my hand garden tools, etc. and my garden gloves in the box.

We are definitely back in the cooling ripple. It isn't

any more, this is simply a eturn to the cool period like

When the grant seekers start howling about a pending ice 
age again, then you will know we are close to the end of 
the cooling ripple and will soon get gullible warming again.

A pastor and two of his deacons are out on the river fishing in their rowboat. Twelve o'clock rolls around, and one of the deacons notices a nice spot on the bank to have lunch. He turns to the others and says, "That looks like a nice spot for lunch. What do you say we have lunch over there?" The other deacon agrees, and so does the pastor. The deacon stands up in the boat, steps out onto the river and walks over to the bank. The pastor looks on with amazement, and thinks to himself, if THIS deacon is holy enough to walk on water, surely he can too. The other deacon stands up, picks up the picnic basket, steps out of the boat, and walks over to the bank and sits with the first deacon. Again, to his amazement, the pastor thinks again, if even his second deacon is holy enough to walk on water, then surely he can too. He stands up, gingerly steps out of the boat, and sinks. The first deacon turns to the second and says, "Think we should have told him where the rocks are?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Mark Endicot Jackson Jr, 40, in Jacksonville, FL 5-Year-Old Steers Car When Father Passes Out JACKSONVILLE | Authorities say a 5-year-old girl took the steering wheel and did her best to drive the car off the road after her father passed out. The 2010 Camaro jumped a curb, ran over landscaping and crashed into a parking sign before it came to a stop Monday evening. A Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office report indicates the child had a bloody nose and lower lip. Officers found 40-year-old Mark Endicot Jackson Jr unresponsive and staring at the ceiling. He later told officials he had taken Xanax and oxycodone earlier in the day. Jackson was charged with driving under the influence while accompanied by a minor. He remained in the Jacksonville Jail early today, with bail set at $3,000.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Dimitris Re: Lexmark sabotages printers Dear Webby It has been reported that Lexmark is sending messages to the users to update their firmware, passing these changes off disguised as "product updates" or "system improvements" or printer enhancements or similar phrases used by the OEM printer manufacturer. However, installing these "updates" can leave the printer unable to accept any but the very newest Lexmark cartridges and really cause problems with remanufactured Lexmark cartridges. If you are happy with the printer's performance, then there will be no benefit for you to accept the phony "firmware upgrades". If you want to be sure to have the choice of a remanufactured cartridge from a trusted toner cartridges source like Atlantic Inkjet, then you should say No to ANY and all changes offered by Lexmark ® or Samsung ®, Dell ® or IBM ®. Dimitris Dear Dimitris Thank you for that important alert! Since my printer works just fine with toner from Atlantic Inkjet, I definitely won't mess with the drivers for it. Have FUN DearWebby

A curious fellow died one day and found himself waiting in a long long line for judgment. As he stood there he noticed that some souls were allowed to march right through the gates of heaven - others, though, were led over to Satan who threw them into a burning fire pit. Every so often, instead of hurling a poor soul into the fire, Satan would toss the soul to one side in a small pile. After watching Satan do this several times, the fellow's curiosity got the better of him. So he strolled over and tapped Satan on the shoulder. "Excuse me, Prince of Darkness," he said. "I'm waiting in line for judgment, but I couldn't help wondering why are you tossing those souls aside instead of flinging them into the fires of hell with the others?" "Ah," Satan said with a grin. "Those are from Seattle ... they're too wet to burn!"

The Truth About the Israeli "Occupiers"

By Robert Ringer

Now that our dear leader has again shown his contempt for Israel and his sentimental attachment to radical Muslims, Israelis are feeling the heat from Jew haters worldwide more than at any time since World War II. Obama's modern-day version of the final solution is for Israel to simply cooperate in its own suicide by giving up the Golan Heights, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. (Predictably, he has since fudged a bit on the issue for political purposes.)

Iran's version of Sheikh Obama, president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Iran by using high tech equipment to drain the clouds of raindrops.

Because Mother Nature doesn't like bullshitters, moments after the

a dam in a central province, it started to rain. 
He got soaked.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Andrew Hallock, 27 in Sebastian, Florida Son Arrested after Explosives Burn Mother SEBASTIAN, Fla. -- A Sebastian man faces charges of making a destructive device after an explosion in a shed behind a home sent his mother to the hospital. Investigators say 27 year-old Andrew Hallock was actually responsible for two explosive devices. Sunday afternoon, Hallock's mother, 63 year-old Nancy Galuppo, was cleaning out a shed behind her home on Shakespeare Street when an explosion nearly blew out the walls. Galuppo was flown to Orlando Regional Medical Center where she is in critical condition. While questioning Hallock, detectives discovered there was a second improvised explosive device in Hallock's home on Mulberry Street. That device was detonated overnight at the Sebastian airport by the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Bomb Squad.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Elsie Re: What is so special about Word Perfect 5.1? Dear Webby What is so special about Word Perfect 5.1? I have seen it even on employment application forms and often wondered what's the big deal about an old program like that, when I can use a much newer program. Elsie Dear Elsie Word Perfect 5.1 is the last Word Perfect version, that is not WYSIWIG. There IS a print preview, but for fast professional work, you machine-gun the text in at top speed, then spell-check and proof read, and pretty it up at the same time. In the same spirit of maximum speed, WOP had every function and command available as a hot-key. Especially, when the function keys were still at the left of the keyboard, where touch typists could hit them without breaking their stride, that speeded things up considerably. You didn't have to take a hand off the keyboard and tediously mouse around. Since WordPerfect 5.1 is from before WYSIWIG. The screen is a dark blue, regular text is a greyish white. VERY easy on the eyes. Special formatting is shown in different colors. Yes, it does take some learning and practising, just like piloting a jet takes some learning and practising, but the high performance results are quite desireable. Or were, at one time. In the late 80's and 90's the work flow in offices changed. Computers started to look like fun, and easy enough for execs to use. At the same time, Women's Liberation and unions changed the typing pools. Nowadays the typing is done by execs and agents themselves, and instead of high speed, the emphasis is on the letters to look pretty. Have FUN DearWebby

Sick Joke 

I was in the pub the other day telling that joke, "What do you do if you see an epileptic have a fit in the bath? Throw in your washing."

We were all having a good laugh about this when someone tapped me on the shoulder and said, "Excuse me mate, but I don't find that funny. My brother was epileptic and he died in the bath during a fit."

I said, "I'm ever so sorry mate, did he drown?"

"No," he said, "he choked on a sock."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Darin Hickman, 46 of Staten Island, NY He also earned a Darwin Award. Thief jumps 200 feet and survives dies. ELIZABETH, N.J., May 22 (UPI) -- A Staten Island, N.Y., man out on bail for allegedly stealing an expensive handbag survived a 200-foot jump after allegedly stealing another one, police say. Hickman had a lengthy criminal record dating back to at least the 1980s, and his third stint in New York state prison -- for a 2005 possession of stolen property and a forged instrument conviction -- ended in February 2010, according to public records. New York Port Authority police were chasing Darin Hickman, 46, after he allegedly shoplifted a tony Louis Vuitton purse from a mall in New Jersey. Just as Hickman got close to the Goethals Bridge in Elizabeth, N.J., he rammed a police car, causing his Mitsubishi Diamante to catch fire, the New York Post reported Sunday. Hickman jumped out of the car and bolted down the highway and then he made a totally unexpected move, police said. "Suddenly, he makes a hard left -- and falls 200 feet!" an officer on the scene marveled. "I still, to this moment, can't believe what I saw. This mope threw himself off a bridge, and has no external injuries and seems to be fine." When police and firefighters discovered Hickman alive and breathing, all he wanted to know was, "How's my car?" the officer said. The alleged robber was out on bail for stealing a comparable Louis Vuitton bag worth $2,500 last week. Jones said that initial reports stated Hickman, who was captured by the authorities in the marsh, appeared to be uninjured. "He seemed to be coherent and conscious," Jones told The Item. However, Hickman apparently suffered internal injuries and was transported to University Hospital in Newark, where he died around 11:26 a.m.

Anna's third-grade class students were bombarding her with questions about her newly pierced ears. "Does the hole go all the way through?" "Yes." "Did it hurt?" "Just a little." "Did they stick a needle through your ears?" "No, they used a special gun." Silence followed, and then one solemn voice called out, "How far away did they stand?" Little Johnny tried answering that one: "Well, the way your ears stick out like a open barn doors, I could do it from fifty feet with my '22." Ann breathed a sigh of relief. She had been afraid somebody would ask if they got both ears with one shot.

Recently a large seminar was held for ministers in training. Among the guests were many well-known motivational speakers. One such boldly approached the pulpit and, gathering the entire crowd's attention, said, "The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman that wasn't my wife!" The crowd was shocked! He followed up by saying, "And that woman was my mother!" The crowd burst into laughter and he gave his speech, which went over well. About a week later one of the ministers who had attended the seminar decided to use that joke in his sermon. As he shyly approached the pulpit one sunny Sunday, he tried to rehearse the joke in his head. It seemed a bit foggy to him this morning. Getting to the microphone he said loudly, "The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of another woman, that was not my wife!" His congregation sat shocked. After standing there for almost 10 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, the pastor finally blurted out, "...and I can't remember who she was!"

Today's picture reminds me of a trip down the Musqua, Nelson 
and Liard river many years ago, in 72. I left with three friends 
at 4am, at the end of a wild party. We were going to try and 
get jobs at the construction of the Smokey Mountain pipeline.

Yes, we were quite naive and not very sober. 
We rafted with an abandoned plywood river boat. No motor, 
not even a paddle. 
It was quite an adventure!

A few hours before we got to Fort Liard, the sky behind us
looked just like in that picture, except the Liard river is about 
three times as wide. We KNEW we were going to get soaked. 
So I suggested cutting some saplings on the shore, and tying 
up all the blankets we had as sails, because, I figured, the
wind would hit us before the rain.

Pretty soon we were clipping down that river at incredible
speeds. Picture 4 bearded hippies (remember , it was 1972)
on a rickety "boat", that looked like a hijacked sand box,
with four blankets rigged in a rather haywire fashion,
trailing a long steering oar and a fair bit of white water, 
just a hooting and hollering, and knowing, that if we hit a
log jam or gravel bar doing 50 miles an hour, it would be
very messy and very painful.

The log jams had been dynamited before the ice went out,
and were just at the upward tips of islands. We managed to
avoid hitting any of those and got to Fort Liard, just as the
first big drops fell. We hit the shore and rode the bow wave
up the sand about 30 feet, grabbed our stuff and ran up the
bank to the porch of an abandoned store. 

After all our stuff was safe and dry, we stood out in the 
downpour for a very overdue shower. 
 
Have FUN!

Thanks to Donnie for this story: Sarah dropped in on her sister Molly and found her sitting at the kitchen table, staring blankly at a half-empty cup of coffee, her three kids squabbling loudly in the other room. "What's wrong Molly?" she asked. Molly told her that she had morning sickness. Surprised, Sarah said, "Hurray! I didn't even know you were pregnant!" "I'm not," the harried middle-aged mother replied. "I'm just sick of mornings." ----------- Try changing the coffee grounds more frequently!
Do you remember the smell and taste of REAL tomatoes? REAL tomatoes, that you could bite into, and smell a tomato sandwich from across the room? If you prefer REAL tomatoes like that, to the bland, tough- skinned stuff, that has been modified for mechanical harvesting, long distance transport and the convenience of the stores, the answer could be on your balcony or window sill. Organic Tomato Magic Use Method, not chemicals!

Mrs. Jones was reading a letter at breakfast. Suddenly she looked up suspiciously at her husband. "Henry," she said, "I've just received a letter from Mother saying she isn't accepting our invitation to come and stay, as we do not appear to want her. What does she mean by that? I told you to write and say that she was to come at her own convenience. You did write, didn't you?" "Er, yes, I did," said the husband. "But I couldn't spell convenience, so I made it risk."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Charles Smallwood, 40, in Acron, Ohio Duct Tape Sticks Akron Man to 10 Years in Prison (Akron) - An Akron man who pleaded guilty to aggravated burglary and robbery will spend six years in prison. 40-year-old Charles Smallwood was also sentenced to an additional four years on two other pending cases for a total ten year sentence. The victim, who was 91-years-old at the time of the offense, was awakened around 2:30 a.m. on August 5 when two men broke into his house. The burglars put duct tape on one of the windows so there would not be noise when they broke in. The burglars went to the victim’s bedroom and pushed him around and hit him with a screwdriver, demanding money. The victim began to yell, at which point they found some money in the pants he had worn that day. They took off before police got there. The victim could not identify the suspects, so DNA was taken from the duct tape on the window. There was a hit on Smallwood and a swab was obtained. His DNA matched the DNA on the duct tape. Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh says, “The number of uses for duct tape just increased by one – crime solving.” Smallwood was on community control for a 2009 case for failure to comply with a police officer when he committed this offense. He was also awaiting sentencing on a 2010 case for breaking and entering.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Elsie Re: Expired Microsoft WEIRD and EXCEL Dear Webby We got a few computers for work from Dell. They came with some kind of sneaky trial of Microsoft office pre-installed. Now, all of a sudden, that stopped working, and we are supposed to pay serious money, just to keep using it. All we need is WEIRD and EXCEL, none of the other stuff. What do bigger companies do about that? Elsie Dear Elsie Not just bigger, but also small companies use Open Office. It is free. It will pick up WORD and Excel files, and even lets you save them in WORD or Excel format, not just in Open format. You can continue using the old format, and gradually switch to the Open format. You can download it from http://www.openoffice.org/ Open Office Write and Calc do everything WORD and Excel used to do, but the switch may take some people a bit of getting used to. It's well worth it, though. Have FUN DearWebby

Just as she was celebrating her 80th birthday, our friend received a jury-duty notice. She called to remind the people at the clerk's office that she was exempt because of her age. "You need to come in and fill out the exemption forms," they said. "I've already done that," she replied. "I did it last year." "You have to do it every year," she was told. "Why?" came the response. "Do you think I'm going to get younger, or are YOU getting too old and forgetful?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Rosemary For Skewers Rather than buying skewers I use branches off of my rosemary bush. I cut them approximately 12 inches long. After thoroughly washing the branch, I strip the leaves and either dry them in the oven or use them fresh. I use a knife to put a point on the branch and "thread" on onions, pineapple, chunks of chicken and bell peppers. The taste imparted when put on the barbecue is heavenly. Equally successful is roasting them in the oven at 375 degrees F. This is just my favorite recipe. Your imagination and taste can guide you to the food you put on your skewers.

As the manager of our hospital's softball team, I was responsible for returning equipment to the proper owners at the end of the season. When I walked into the surgery department carrying a bat that belonged to one of the surgeons, I passed several patients and their families in a waiting area. "Look, honey," one man said to his wife. "Here comes your anesthesiologist."

That baseball bat joke reminds me of this one: A man who had just undergone a very complicated operation kept complaining about a bump on his head and a terrible headache. Since his operation had been an intestinal one, there was no earthly reason why he should be complaining of a headache. Finally his nurse, fearing that the man might be suffering from some post-operative shock, spoke to the doctor about it. The doctor assured the nurse, "Don't worry about a thing. He really does have a bump on his head. About halfway through the operation we ran out of anesthetic."

A few people asked about how much it costs to send money with PayPal.
It doesn't cost the sender anything.
The recipient pays for the transaction, same as with bank transfers.

With commercial transactions, for example, when you are paying 
an invoice or buying something, the recipient pays 30 cents plus 2.9%.
Because of the flat fee 30 cents, that is a big chunk out of a single dollar,
but negligible on a larger amount.

If you want to transfer money to a kid or spouse, 
if it is from a PayPal account to another PayPal account, it is free.
Overall, it is a good deal, and better than any other method, that
I have seen. And the sender never pays. Always the smiling recipient.
 
Have FUN!

One rainy evening John and his wife emerged from a restaurant only to find that he had locked the keys in the car. He insisted he could open the door with a wire coat hanger, so they went back to the restaurant to get one. There were none to be found. John then ran to a department store a quarter-mile away and returned with a hanger. After a few attempts, he got the door open and they climbed in. As they sat there, soaked and cold, he stuck the hanger under his seat. With a smug grin, he said, "Now if this ever happens again, I'll have a coathanger ready!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Stevie Hickey, 22, New Kensington, PA Vain 21 year old runs over her father NEW KENSINGTON, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania woman will stand trial on charges she fed marijuana-laced margarine to a 12-year-old girl she was baby-sitting, as well as two other children at her home. The 12-year-old's mother called Upper Burrell Township police after discovering the drugs in a tub of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter in 22-year-old Stevie Hickey's freezer. The woman tells police Hickey spread the substance on two pieces of toast that Hickey gave to the girl. Police say Hickey told the girl it was "parsley butter" but later acknowledged to police that it was marijuana. The Valley News Dispatch in Tarentum reports Hickey remains free after waiving her right to a preliminary hearing on marijuana possession and child endangerment charges May 10.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Jacqui Re: Facebook Cursor Hi Webby re the facebook cursor problem for God's sake don't click on it it's a hacker. There has been lots of trouble on facebook with the logo popping up asking you to log in again - but it's this damn hacker. They get their kicks by going into your profile and screwing around etc etc all the best Jacqui Thanks, Jacqui!

A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the subject of marriage counselling came up. "Oh, we'll never need that.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Remove Pet Hair with Washcloth Removing pet hair from any cloth surface is easy if you use a damp washcloth. Wipe cushions or clothing in one direction only and the hair will lift off. You can also try a damp sponge mop to remove pet hair from your carpets. Again wipe in one direction only and the hair will just pile up and can be easily picked up by hand.

Thanks to Jim for this one: I graduated from a private school that I didn't like much. Once I was out of there, I had no particular desire to ever contribute to their latest fund drive or athletic events. Sure enough, Alumni Affairs staff called my folks, got my current number and tracked me down. 'So, what have you been doing with yourself?' the perky alumnus asked. I responded, "Oh, not a lot. Just what I learned in college: Stealing cars, selling dope and running moonshine." They've never called back.

To impress his date, the young man took her to a very chick Italian restaurant. After sipping some fine wine, he picked up the menu and studied it with an appraising eye. "We'll have the Giuseppe Spomdalucci," he said finally. "Sorry, sir," said the waiter. "That's the chef. He does not like being boiled or fried."
