Hi Webby
Re: Winzip eats drive space
Or just use 7zip (www.7zip.com) which is free!!
Cheers
Frank

I have used 7zip. 
It does work, but it definitely requires changing habits
and reading instructions. Probably to avoid copyright suits,
they use a different user interface. 
If you are willing to read the instructions, the 7zip will
work well for you.

Have FUN!

A man was burglaring a house in the middle of the night. All of a sudden, he heard a parrot cry out. "Jesus is gonna get you." The robber ignored it, and takes the TV. Again, the parrot cries out. "Jesus is gonna get you." The robber started to get a little worried. "What's your name, birdie?" "Moses." "What dummy named you Moses?" "The same dummy who called his Rottweiler Jesus."
A man was sued by the mayor for defamation of character. She charged that he had called her a pig. The man was found guilty and fined. After sentencing he asked the judge, "This means that I cannot call Mrs. Allmond a pig?" The judge said that was true. "Does this mean I cannot call a pig Mrs. Allmond?" the man asked. The judge replied that he could indeed call a pig Mrs. Allmond with no fear of legal action. The man looked directly at Mrs. Allmond and said, "Good afternoon, Mrs. Allmond."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Cesar Alcivar, 40, in Clearwater, FL Jailed for Impregnating 12-Year-Old Girl after Sexually Molesting Her For More Than A year Reported in The Weekly Vice Cesar Alcivar, a 40-year-old Florida man has been jailed after he allegedly impregnated a 12-year-old girl after repeatedly molesting her for more than a year. According to Clearwater police, an investigation was launched after a 12-year-old girl was brought to the emergency room complaining of stomach pain, but was found to be pregnant instead. Investigators say the girl's mother brought he girl to a Clearwater area hospital after she complained of chronic stomach pain. Doctors performed tests, however, that revealed she was pregnant. The investigation that followed revealed that the girl had endured more than a year of sexual abuse beginning when she was just 11 years old. The victim identified the suspect as 39-year-old Cesar Alcivar. Alcivar was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and charged with capital sexual battery. Bond has not yet been set in the case.

Tech Support Pits: From: Nora Re: PPS files that won't open Dear Webby, People send me PPS files all the time, often with really beautiful pictures. Sometimes, however, I get an error about Open Office not loading password encrypted Microslop Powerpoint presentations. I guess somebody is trying to rub it in, that they had the money to buy the full Microslop Office. I don't have that kind of money and use Open Office. Usually, it seems, people password stuff after they slobber religious or dogooder quotes onto good pictures. Is there a way around that childish passwording of PPS files? Nora Dear Nora You can go to my tool box at http://webby.com/tools and grab the Microsft Powerpoint READER. That one is free. Depending on the type of passwording, you can only view the PPS, but can't take the slobbery comments off. To make it editable, you have to send it to somebody, who has the full version of Microsoft Office. They can save it in editable mode. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Pringles Cans for Storage Besides making the solar hot dog cooker that I've seen on several sites, I use Pringles containers for storing the plastic bags we get from stores. Then, I have a portable dispenser for plastic bags to store in car, hunting and fishing gear, and for gardening (for holding produce while harvesting and for gifting excess produce to others).

A nun was sitting at a window in her convent one day when she was handed a letter from home. Upon opening it a $50 bill dropped out. She was most pleased at receiving the gift from her home folks, but as she read the letter her attention was distracted by the actions of a shabbily dressed stranger who was leaning against a post in front of the convent. She couldn't get him off her mind and thinking that he might be in financial difficulties. She took the $50 bill and wrapped it in a piece of paper, on which she had written, "Don't despair, Sister Eulalia." She threw it out of the window to him. He picked it up, read it, looked at her with a puzzled expression, tipped his hat and went off down the street. The next day she was in her room saying her prayers when she was told that a man was at her door who insisted on seeing her. She went down and found the shabbily dressed stranger waiting for her. Without saying a word he handed her a roll of bills. When she asked what the bills were for he replied, "That's the four-hundred bucks you have coming. Don't Despair paid 7-1."

DEAR WEBBY,
THIS Morning you said Happy THANKSDGIVING.

Dear Candace
Keep in mind that the Viking Eric the Red, 
grandfather of Hagar the Horrible, 
discovered Canada a thousand years before 
Columbus mistook the Carribean islands for India 
and called the natives Indians. 
And today, 1012 years ago, Hagar's Great-grand son Leif Ericson
crashed in Vinland, today's Newfoundland.

That is why Canada Day is 4 days before your July 4th 
holiday, and why Canada's Thanksgiving is a month 
before yours.

Don't worry, we generally celebrate both anyway.

Have FUN!

History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all other alternatives. --- Abba Eban
A man decided that he was going to ride a 10-speed bike from Phoenix to Flagstaff. He got as far as Black Canyon City before the mountains just became too much and he could go no farther. He stuck his thumb out, but after 3 hours he hadn't gotten a single person to stop. Finally a guy in a Corvette pulled over and offered him a ride. Of course, the bike wouldn't fit in the car. The owner of the Corvette found a piece of rope lying by the highway and tied it to his bumper. He tied the other end to the bike and told the man that if he got to going too fast to honk the horn on his bike and he would slow down. Everything went fine for the first 30 miles. Suddenly, another Corvette blew past them. Not to be outdone, the Corvette pulling the bike took off after the other. A short distance down the road, the Corvettes, both going well over 120 mph, blew through a speed trap. The police officer noted the speeds from his radar gun and radioed to the other officer that he had 2 Corvettes headed his way at over 120 mph. He then relayed, "And you're not going to believe this, but there's guy on a 10-speed bike honking to get them to let him pass."
Morris goes to see the Rabbi. "Rabbi, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it." The Rabbi asked, "What's wrong?" Morris replied, "My wife is poisoning me." The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, "I'm sure you're wrong." The man pleads, "I'm telling you, I'm certain she's poisoning me. What should I do?" The Rabbi then offers, "Tell you what, let me talk to her. I'll see what I can find out and I'll let you know." A week later the Rabbi calls the man and says, "Well, I called your wife. She talked to me on the phone for three hours. You want my advice?" The man anxiously says, "Yes, please." "Take the poison!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Sophia E. Davidson, 21, in Massilon, Ohio Jailed for hijacking Repo tow truck Thanks to Penny for reporting this bimbo malfunction: MASSILLON, Ohio A 21-year-old city woman hijacked a tow truck with her repossessed SUV hooked to the back and led Massillon police on a 7.5-mile chase, which some veteran officers say was the wildest and most dangerous of their careers. The crash ended when the woman, Sophia E. Davidson, of 503 Tremont Ave. SE, lost control of the tow truck in the 10,000 block of Orrville Street NW and slammed into a vacant home. No one was injured. “I’ve seen a lot of chases in 25 years,” Sgt. J.J. DiLoreto said. “But nothing like that.” “I’ve never chased anybody driving a tow truck with a car on the back of it,” Lt. Michael Mareno added. Ed Meadows, a tow truck driver for Skipco, said he was attempting to repossess Davidson’s 2004 Mercury Mountaineer that was parked outside of Huntington Bank, 153 Lincoln Way E, at about 11 a.m. Friday. As he was connecting the tow gear, Davidson approached him and attempted to stop him by pulling at his side. Meadows ignored her and continued to attach the tow equipment. The next thing Meadows knew, his driver’s side door swung shut. “As I was repo’ing it, she jumped in and took off,” a befuddled Meadows said, throwing his hands in the air. “...I’m kind of dumbfounded right now. I’ve never had that happen before and I’ve been doing this a long time.” With her Mountaineer hooked to the back of a Skipco-owned Ford F250, Davidson fled downtown Massillon by way of Second Street and headed north onto state Route 21. As the vehicles fish-tailed over both northbound lanes, the tires of the Mountaineer began to disintegrate, engraving the payment with black skid marks for nearly two miles. The tires eventually blew off the Mountaineer, but Davidson continued driving. Speeds exceeded 65 mph. Davidson, with Massillon and Lawrence Township police trailing her, was slowed by the driver of a semi tractor trailer rig who intentionally tried to block her path. Then she turned west onto Butterbridge Road. Vehicles pulled over to the side of the road as more than five police cruisers pursued Davidson. Shortly after turning onto Orrville Street, Davidson lost control of the truck, which spun and crashed into the front of a single-story vacant home. The tow truck knocked out the entire front wall. Police swarmed the truck, drawing their firearms and ordering Davidson from the vehicle, in-dash camera footage of the accident showed. One officer used an asp to shatter the truck’s window and drag Davidson out the hard way and take her into custody.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Abbie Arms, a 24, Newark, Delaware Jailed After Abandoning Baby On Sidewalk To "Answer Phone Call" Abbie Arms, a 24-year-old Delaware woman was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly left her infant son unattended on a sidewalk for more than 45 minutes while she had more pressing matters to attend to. According to police, officers were dispatched to the Glasgow Court Trailer Park Wednesday after a resident called to report that a woman set her infant child on a sidewalk, walked away, and never returned. Investigators arrived on the scene a short time later and found an 11-month-old child, that had been buckled into a car seat and then left unattended on the sidewalk. The witness told police that she saw a woman dressed in shorts and a t-shirt leave the child on the sidewalk before walking away. Additional officers were dispatched to the scene to assist in locating the child's mother. Officers searched the area for more than 45 minutes before eventually locating the mother at her residence in another part of the trailer park. The mother, identified as Abbie Arms, told officers that she had to attend a call when she left her son behind. Arms was booked into jail and charged with endangering the welfare of a child. She was released after posting $250 bail.

Tech Support Pits: From: Ann Re: Paint for digital camera Dear Webby, A few days ago you mentioned paining a digital camera. What kind of paint would be safe? Ann Dear Ann Provided that you use some masking tape over the lens area, the screen and the seams of anything, that opens, you can use any paint you want. Considering the resale value, a metallic paint looks the best, or a candy-pple gloss. If you are not worried about resale value, but fewer drops, use a thick latex paint. They are not as smooth and not as slippery. If dropping is a real problem, get Loctite Color Guard That is a light blue or fire engine red rubber paint made for dipping valve handles or tool handles for work in explosive environments or up on high towers. It is not cheap, a can costs between $9 and $19, depending on the dealer, but I have never dropped a tool, that I had dipped into it, no matter how high up a mast I was. With a camera, of course, you just paint it on. It produces a thick, soft, rubbery finish, that is almost sticky. If somebody has arthritis, that thick, soft rubber will make holding the camera relatively painless. And yes, after breaking some fingers, dipping your pens into that Loctite Color Guard rubber paint will make holding them a lot less painful. Industrial tool suppliers stock it or can order it, the Snap-On tool pusher usually carries a can or two, and you can also order it over the Internet. Have FUN! DearWebby

Sheila Dear Sheila If you have your clock set to synchronize with the rest of the world at midnight, but turn your computer off at 11:55 PM, then your computer's clock will go a bit more out of sync every day. Just like wall clocks and wrist watches need to be set occasionally, the same applies to the computer's clock. That does not mean your computer's clock is not accurate, it's that the year is not 365 days, but 365 1/4 days, minus a few hours. Some atomic clocks are set for that, and some eggheads fudge and correct even that occasionally. The Synchronize function calls that atomic clock, or actually a server, that is updated daily, and uses that to update your computer clock. Just double-click the clock and change the time for the synchronizing to a time, during which your normally are online. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Egg Cartons For Craft Organization: I save egg cartons of both kinds cardboard and Styrofoam. I use the bottom of all sizes in the Styrofoam to use when I do watercolor painting. They can be used for any painting medium and also for crafting. I use them and then toss them out after my day of painting for mixing colors. You can also either the Styrofoam or cardboard cartons for all sorts of crafting or sewing, for storing beads for Jewelry making, for any kind of small items to keep you organized.

The Manhattan Commuter train was packed. Suddenly there was a jingle on the floor. Most necks were craned. One elderly gentleman, however, bent down and picked something up. He then asked, "Did anyone drop a half dollar?" "I did," answered three women at once. "Well," said the elderly gent with a smile, "here's a dime of it."

There was a knock at the door. It was a small boy, about six years old. Something of his had found its way into my garage, he said, and he wanted it back. Upon opening the garage door, I noticed two additions: a base- ball and a broken window sporting a baseball-sized hole. "How do you suppose this ball got in here?" I asked the boy. Taking one look at the ball, one look at the window, and one look at me, the boy exclaimed, "Wow! I must have thrown it right through that hole!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Coutney Speer, 31, Bryant, Ark Teacher - Charged With Having Sex With Student In School Parking Lot Bryant, Ark. (The Report by The Weekly Vice Courtney Speer, a 31-year-old English teacher at Bryant High School was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly had sex with a student in the school parking lot and other locations. According to Bryant Police, an investigation was launched Monday when a 17-year-old student told school resource officers that he was involved in a sexual relationship with teacher at the same school. It was not reported, whether Speer had just picked a habitual gossip, or whether any event, or lack of any event, prompted the confessions. Investigators say Speer and the student had sexual intercourse for the first time in her car which was parked in the school parking lot. The pair reportedly had sex three more times with at least two instances taking place at her residence. The alleged sexual relationship began in June of this year. Courtney reportedly resigned from her job the same day the investigation was launched and turned herself in to police on Wednesday morning. Speer was booked into jail and charged with five counts of sexual assault. Two of those counts were filed in Benton County where she reportedly resides. She was released after posting a $20,000 bond. Speer is married and has two children. Hubby might get miffed, when he reads this.

Tech Support Pits: From: Ron Re: Programs on different drives Dear Webby, a question for when your eyes get better again and I hope all goes well. I have an external hard drive labeled F drive. Can I install programs on that drive instead of C drive and will they work the same? I want to free up some space on C drive. Or can programs be moved from C to F or do I have to uninstall and reinstall them? Thanks as always for your help. Also how can I find and remove old drivers. I know you have given tips on old drivers but I do not know how to do it. Thanks. Ron Dear Ron Yes, sure you can install them there! I have reserved the C: drive for JUST the OS since Windows 3.1, and have always put programs onto E:, and produced data onto F: However, also save the setup file. The Setup file doesn't just unzip all the included files, it also puts notices into the registry, telling Windows where to find that program and it's components. You need that,when you attach that external drive to a different machine. Instead of smart PIFs (Program Information Files) like in Windows 3 and 3.1, starting with Windoze 95 all that information was put into the central registry, a huge, unwieldy and very user-hostile dump. Since then, no matter whether you moved a program to a different drive or a different machine, you have to uninstall and re-install at the new location, unless you want to hand-edit the registry. (NOT Recommended!) Re the old drivers, CrapCleaner lets you find those, but unless you are nitpicking for a few extra Kilobytes of space, I would not bother with them. Most, except those for HP stuff, are quite small and not really worth the hassle. If you need space, go after movies and music. Have FUN! DearWebby

I couldn't help overhearing a man at a nearby pay phone. "I know it's something you want," he said earnestly, "but I don't think tattoos are a good idea. And the same goes for body piercing. As long as you're living in my house, I think you should respect my wishes." I was secretly cheering him on for his fatherly firmness. Then came the 'coup de grace': "Besides, Ma, you're 75 years old! You don't NEED a tattoo!"

While interviewing job applicats I was talking to an attractive young woman. Looking over the application form, I noticed that the girl had not answered one important question concerning transportation to and from work. "What about your bus line?" I asked her. "I don't believe I mentioned it," came the pleased reply, "but it's a 38D." Hmmm. That number is probably related to typing speed.

Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, October 4

Thank you, Francis!

Wednesday morning I woke up to a white world.
Ashes from the Gullible Warming that Obama and Al Gore keep 
talking about? 
By the time I got my glasses on, it was clear, that all the
white stuff was just snow. So I gruffily conceded, that 
summer is over and put on the long jeans. 
Just for the morning! 
Sure enough, by early afternoon it was warm enough to wear
shorts for washing the car windows and getting it ready 
for the trip to Calgary on Thursday morning.

Looks like it is the season to be envious of you Floridians
and Texans.

As you read this, I am getting injections into my eyes.
That means there probably won't be any newsletters sent out 
on October 5, and possibly 6. I sure hope it won't be a disaster 
like last month. My eyes still have not completely recovered 
from that. However, I will write and send them again 
as soon as I can.

Have FUN!

A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon. Four worms were placed into four separate jars. The first worm was put into a container of alcohol. The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke. The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup. The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil. At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results: The first worm in alcohol - Dead. The second worm in cigarette smoke - Dead. Third worm in chocolate syrup - Dead. Fourth worm in good clean soil - Alive. So the Minister asked the congregation - "What can you learn from this demonstration?" Little was sitting in the back and quickly stood up and said, "As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Ashley Bellamy, 22, Upper Darby, PA Jailed After Police Find 36 Glass Vials Of Crack Cocaine Inside Her Vagina Ashley Bellamy, a 22-year-old Pennsylvania woman was jailed Saturday after she allegedly hid 36 glass vials of crack cocaine in her vagina in an attempt to avoid arrest. According to police, a 40-year-old man was attempting to buy crack cocaine from Bellamy and her boyfriend in a Wawa Grocery Store parking lot when the couple pulled a gun on the man and demanded that he get more money. Instead, the man ran into the store and called 911. Investigators say police arrived on the scene and ordered Bellamy and her boyfriend to get out of the vehicle. When Bellamy exited the vehicle, police noted that she was walking in a strange manner. "I've got crack in my vagina," Bellamy reportedly told officers when she realized police were onto her. A female officer who had been summoned to the scene found 36 glass vials containing crack cocaine inside the woman's vagina. Bellamy told investigators that her boyfriend, 22-year-old Marcus Gibson, ordered her to hide the cocaine when he noticed police had arrived at the scene. Officers also recovered $646 from Bellamy's handbag. Bellamy and Gibson were booked into jail and charged with violation of the health and safety act for drug possession and drug dealing. Bail has been set at $75,000 each. Gun and ttempted robbery charges may be added later.

Tech Support Pits: From: Tom Re: Moisture Migration Dear Webby, You have been such a help with computer questions, and seem to have a great deal of knowledge on everyday items also. I would appreciate it if you could find an answer for this question. I take my lunch to work in a plastic cooler about 12 X 16 inches and 18 deep. I put a few cans of soda in the bottom, cover them with ice and then put my sandwich in on top. Some time the sandwich is wrapped in Saran Wrap and sometimes in wax paper and then put in a plastic sealable sandwich bag. By lunch time sometimes, and only sometimes the bread on one side of the sandwich is soggy and the other slice is hard, dried out. I leave my cooler in the car and this seems to happen all year round. (Chicago area) Why does this happen and how do I stop it? Tom Dear Tom Moisture in the sandwich will condense in the cold side, which will reduce the humidity in the sandwich bag, causing more liquid to evaporate on the warm side, and condense on the cold side. Just cover te ice with some folded up bubble-wrap or piece of styrofoam. The sandwich will still be cool, but not soggy on one side. A small styrofoam box, that a modem or hard drive came in also works fine as a thermal "boat". You just have to prevent the sandwich bag from touching the ice. Have FUN! DearWebby

Four retired guys are walking down a street in Mesa, Ariz. They turn a corner and see a sign that says, "Old Timers Bar . . . . ALL DRINKS 10 CENTS!" They look at each other, then go in, thinking this is too good to be true. The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, "Come on in and let me pour one for you! What'll it be, Gentlemen?" There seems to be a fully-stocked bar, so each of the men ask for a martini. In short order, the bartender serves up four iced martinis -- shaken, not stirred, and says, "That'll be 10 cents each, please." The four men stare at the bartender for a moment, then look at each other. They can't believe their good luck. They pay the 40 cents, finish their martinis, and order another round. Again, four excellent martinis are produced with the bartender again saying, "That's 40 more cents, please." They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity is more than they can stand. They have each had two martinis, and so far they've spent less than a dollar. Finally one of the men says, "How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for a dime apiece?" "Here's my story," the bartender said. "I'm a retired sailor, and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the lottery for $25 million and decided to open this place. Every drink costs a dime, wine, liquor, beer, all the same." "Wow. That's quite a story," says one of the men. The four of them sipped at their martinis and couldn't help but notice three other guys at the end of the bar who didn't have a drink in front of them, and hadn't ordered anything the whole time they were there. One man gestures at the three at the end of the bar without drinks and asks the bartender, "What's with them?" The bartender says, "Oh, they're from Scotland. They're waiting for happy hour at 5 o'clock when drinks are half price."

The Pentagon recently unveiled its new super computer to the top brass. This fantastic device, capable of making bazillions of decisions in split nanoseconds, is designed to solve all military problems with the greatest of ease. To test its capabilities, the brass poses a tactical problem to it and then asks for a decision, "Attack or Retreat?" The computer hums a bit, blinks a myriad of lights and answers, "Yes." The brass, somewhat confused by this answer, replies, "Yes what?" The computer instantly replies, "Yes, sir!"

I was peacefully working away when the phone disturbed me. "Hello?" I said. A girl's voice came over the line. "Can I speak to Ben, please?" I live by myself, and my name definitely is not Ben. It was probably a wrong number and I don't like people who call wrong numbers. I replied, "I'm sorry, he's not in right now. Can I take a message?" "Do you know what time he'll be back?" she responded. "I think he said he'd be home around 10:00." Silence on the other end... a confused silence. "Is this Steve?" My name isn't Steve, either. This was definitely a wrong number. So I replied, "Yes, it is. Do you want to leave a message for Ben?" "Well... he said he would be home tonight and asked me to call him," she said in a slightly irritated voice. I replied, "Well, he went out with Karen about an hour ago, and said that he would be back at 10:00." A shocked voice now: "Who's Karen?!" "The girl he went out with." "I know that! I mean... who is she?" "I don't know her last name. Look, do you want me to leave a message for Ben?" "Yes... please do. Tell him to call me when he gets home." She was sounding pretty irate at this point, and I could hear her temper flaring. "I sure will. Is this Jennifer?" She exploded, "Who's Jennifer?" Apparently she wasn't Jennifer. Good guess though... "Well... he's going out with Jennifer at 10:00. I thought you were her. Sorry... it was an honest mistake." "Ben's the one that's made the mistake! Tell him that Alice called him and that she's very upset and that I would like him to call me as soon as he gets home." I smiled and said, "Okay, I will... are you the one, who got pregnant?" Judging by her howl, she either thought I was hitting a bit too close, or she was getting quite uppset. "That asshole better call me the MINUTE he gets home!" "Okay, I will tell him, but Becky isn't going to like that." *Click*

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Donald Munoz Oregon man drunk on Mike’s Hard Lemonade crashes his bicycle into cop car Donald Munoz might want to consider real lemonade next time. Cops said he drank three bottles of Mike’s Hard Lemonade and then hopped on his bike. He was busted when he crashed it into a police cruiser in Gresham, Ore., KGW-TV reported. Munoz, 32, blew through a red light at around 1:30 a.m. Thursday, according to the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office.

The police cruiser barely nudged him and no one was injured. Munoz admitted to being drunk on Mike’s Hard Lemonade, and the officer, whose car he hit, found an open container of the sugary booze on his bike. He was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants.

An older woman recently returned from her hometown in North Carolina and told a friend they'd spruced up the churchyard cemetery since her last visit several years past. "Lots of new greenery," she said. "And families are together now." "All together?" her friend asked, puzzled. "Well," the first replied, "years ago they never much worried where they buried someone because everyone was a neighbor anyhow. They'd just dig a grave wherever it seemed to balance things. But they've redone it so people are with their children and grandchildren, instead of scattered." The friend was still puzzled. "You mean they exhumed all those people and reburied them?" "Oh my, no," was the reply. "We just shifted the headstones. Everyone agrees it looks ever so much nicer."

It was rush hour, and when the bus finally arrived, it was packed. I tried to force my way on, but no one would budge, although there was ample room in the back. Then the bus driver took over. "Excuse me, Ladies and Gentlemen," he shouted. "For the video, will all the beautiful, smart people please move to the back of the bus, and all the ugly stupid jerks stay up front?" You should have seen the sudden rush! I even got a seat!
Our friends, James and Florence, attend choir practice Wednesday evenings, and often head for a restaurant afterwards with their fellow choir members. Florence soon noticed that every time she had a glass of wine, it was followed by a severe migraine headache. James agreed with her that it might be better if she abstained, and so she did. On one post choir occasion, however, Florence decided, after some hesitation, to order a glass of wine. Some time passed with no untoward consequences. Then she waved happily across the big table where her colleagues all sat and announced in a loud voice, "Hey James! I don't have a headache tonight!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Kendra Meaker, 19, Stark County, Illinois (Thanks to The Weekly Vice) Charged With Leaving Three-Week-Old Daughter In Ditch, Reporting Her Kidnapped 12 Hours Later Kendra Meaker, a 19-year-old Illinois woman was jailed Thursday after she allegedly dumped her three-week old daughter in a ditch, drove off, waited 12 hours, then claimed her daughter had been kidnapped. According to the Stark County Sheriff's Office, Meaker reportedly walked into their office Thursday morning and told deputies that her daughter had been kidnapped out of her car while she was mailing a package at the post office. Illinois State Police issued a state-wide Amber Alert for the missing infant, prompting groups of volunteers to begin canvassing the area. While rescue teams were searching, Meaker eventually changed her story and stated that she abandoned the infant in a roadside ditch, drove off and waited 12 hours before she contacted the Sheriff's Office. Russel and Mary Jo Van Dran, a couple who volunteered to join the search party, found the crying baby in a grassy culvert on the side of the road and brought her to emergency workers. The baby, along with Meaker's 11-month-old daughter, are now in the care of relatives. Meaker was booked into jail and charged with obstruction of justice and endangering the life or health of a child. Her bond was set at $100,000.

Tech Support Pits: From: Irene Re: Separate screensavers for dual monitors? Dear Webby, I used to laugh and snicker at your irate comments about "sawed off monitors" and believed the ads and sales people. What a dumb sucker I was! However, in my line of work I definitely can not cope with sawed off monitors, so I bought a second one of them, turned them upright and put some duck tape behind them to keep them perfectly aligned. The black borders between the monitors are no problem. Just like the dividers on my grandmother's windows, they become practically invisible after a while. Together they are big enough, so that I can do my research on one and do my writing on the other. My question is, if I want to run screensavers, do I need separate ones for each monitor? How do I set them up? Thanks Irene Dear Irene The better screensavers will work across both monitors, as if it was just one big monitor. Don't try the built in "Windows Live Photo gallery" ! It does not work with dual monitors, and might be very difficult to get out of! The built in "Photos" slide show does work, but only on one monitor. The other one will be black. Ribbons and Mystify work properly aross both monitors. Personally, I like Mystify and have used it or screensavers like it since the days of DOS, when I used to create fractals like that. Have FUN!

An Amish boy and his father were visiting a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and back together again. The boy asked his father, "What is this, Father?" The father responded "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is." While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed an old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched small circles of lights w/numbers above the walls light up. They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction. The walls opened up again and a beautiful 24 year old woman stepped out. The father quietly said to his son, "Go get your Mother."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Charles Cowart, 29, in Bunnell, Florida Drunk On Horse Leads Deputies On Slow Speed Chase Through Town Charles Cowart, a 29-year-old Florida man was jailed Monday after he allegedly tried to flee police on a horse. According to the Flagler County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched after a witness reported seeing an intoxicated man urinate on a lawn before riding off on a horse. Investigators say Cowart road the horse in the middle of U.S. 1 and then along a set a railroad tracks. When deputies ordered Cowart down from the horse, he allegedly stated that he was going to see his grandmother in Flagler and refused to dismount from the horse. Cowart rode the horse through town as neighbors came out of their homes to watch the ordeal. Deputies refrained from using their lights or sirens to avoid scaring the horse. Deputies were forced to stop a southbound train in order to protect safety of both the man and horse. Deputies followed Cowart for about 30 minutes until the horse became tired. That's when he allegedly hopped down from the horse and tried to flee on foot. Cowart was booked into the Flagler County Jail and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest without violence, and cruelty to animals. He is being held in lieu of a $7,000 bond. Apparently riding a horse for half an hour is "cruelty to animals" in Floriduh.

Tech Support Pits: From: Shirley Re: Camera for kids Dear Webby, My grandkids, 6 and 7 years old will be visiting me for a couple or three weeks while my daughter has to go for an operation. I want to buy them digital cameras and teach them the basics of my hobby. What kind of camera would you suggest for complete novices of that age? Not too expensive, preferably. Thanks Shirley Dear Shirley Check out http://pricegrabber.com Ignore the listings under $30, those are usually just slime-balls on eBay trying to con you with a bait-and-switch. Look for cameras sold for reasonable prices and preferably by legitimate dealers. A good example is a Vivitar Strawberry V7028 7.1 MegaPixel for $33, with $7.43 for ground shipping. The preview screen is only 1.5", which seems small compared what YOU and I prefer for our older eyes, but quite huge compared to the little view finders that our first cameras had, and more than big enough for 7 year olds. The case is red metallic, to make the camera easy to find, when a kid misplaces it. Here is the link to that camera: http://www.nextwarehouse.com/item/?1327678_p3g By the way, "Strawberry" is just the nickname for that camera, it looks like any small digital camera, just red metallic. You can safely paint one of them lemon yellow for one of the two grand-kids. Have FUN! DearWebby

Tech Support Pits: From: Chris Re: Win32.Trojan Dear Webby, Good morning and I hope this finds you and yours well. After running my SpyPro this morning there was at the bottom of my list of things<14 of them> an entry for Win32.Trojan. Is this something I should have or not deleted? This is day 2 of finding one of the little gremlins on my computer. I'm very careful which mails I open, and do these just come in mail or can they be picked up just anywhere? I had ran a virus check just prior of the SpyPro and nothing came up in my computer scan. Have a great day and thanks again for the jokes and the internet help. Chris Dear Chris If I checked out SpyPro and all the thousands of Spybot-Search&Destroy and McAfee wanna-bees and clones, I would not have time for anything and would turn into a gruffy old curmudgeon. I stick to McAfee and Spybot-Search&Destroy and live a (technically) very sheltered life. I know that McAfee would never let anything as dangerous as win32.Trojan through and into my computer. So I don't worry about it. About all I can do is recommend that you dump the duct taped mopeds, and get a proper dump truck. With that Trojan on your computer, you don't have to click on bad stuff. It will haul it in in the background all on it's own. You are basically renting your machine out to some hackers.

Set iron on warm dry setting and run over a towel until the stain is removed. Clean gunk off the surface of an iron by polishing gently with 0000 grade steel wool. Don't try this with a non-stick iron. If iron surface is dull, polish with Pearl Drops or other toothpaste. To clean mineral deposits from a steam iron, fill it with a mixture of equal parts water and white vinegar. Allow it to steam for several minutes, disconnect, and let stand for an hour.

People ask for criticism, but they only want praise. --- W. Somerset Maugham Some people have so much respect for their superiors they have none left for themselves. --- Peter McArthur
An Irishman walks into a bar and asks for two beers. He then pulls a small green-skinned man out of his pocket and puts him on the counter. As he's drinking one drink and the green man is drinking the other, an Englishman down the bar who has had a few too many drinks says, "Hey Paddy!, what's that little green thing you've got down there?" The little green man runs down the bar and gives the Englishman a raspberry, "SPLBLBLBLT!," right in the face and then runs back to the Irishman. The Englishman mops himself off and says to the Irishman, "Hey Paddy!, what is that thing, anyway?" The Irishman replies, "Have some respect. He's a leprechaun." "A leprechaun!" says the Englishman laughing, "Boy, I never knew leprechauns were so ugly!" The leprechaun runs down the bar and gives the Englishman a raspberry again- SPLBLBLBLBT! This time the Englishman is really mad! "Tell that leprechaun that if he does that again I'll cut his pecker off!" he shouts. "You can't do that" says the Irishman. "Leprechauns don't have peckers." "How do they pee, then?" asks the Englishman. "They don't," says the Irishman. "They go SPLBLBLBLBT!"
There were three country churches in a small Texas town: Presbyterian, Methodist and Catholic. Each church was overrun with pesky squirrels. One day, the Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels. After much prayer and consideration they determined that the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn't interfere with God's divine will. The Methodist group got together and decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creations. So, they humanely trapped the squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back. It was only the Catholics who were able to come up with the best and most effective solution: They baptized the squirrels and registered them as members of the church. Now they see them only on Christmas and Easter.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Warren Thomas Michael III, 23, Fleming Island, Florida Jailed For DUI After Squirrel Gets Revenge Warren Thomas Michael III, a 23-year-old Fleming Island man was jailed for DUI Saturday after he was attacked by a pet squirrel. According to the Clay County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched after a witness reported that a man in a silver pick-up truck "with one headlight out" was driving erratically. A deputy caught up with the vehicle and watched as the driver, identified as Michael, nearly crashed head-on with another vehicle traveling the opposite direction. When the deputy pulled Michael over and approached the vehicle, Michael stated that he was driving erratically because a squirrel "was eating him." That's when Michael allegedly revealed a pet squirrel inside his shirt that had apparently bitten him several times. The deputy, however, still smelled a strong odor of alcohol and administered several field sobriety tests, which Michael failed. He later registered a .156 blood-alcohol level, nearly twice the state's legal limit. Michael was booked into the Clay County Jail and charged with driving a vehicle under the influence of alcoholic beverages and/or a controlled substance. He was alter released to his girlfriend. There is no mention in the report about what happened to the blood testing squirrel, or is that alcoholic blood tasting squirrel?

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Avoid Cleaning Chemicals With Microfiber: I just purchased microfiber towels and a microfiber mop from QVC.com and I love them.

>From Ed A favorite trick at night is to pretend we're still asleep when one of our kids wakes up in the middle of the night demanding our attention. "Erik, he's calling you." (Silence) "Hey wake up. Our son is calling for you." (More Silence) "Erik, I know you're awake. Your breathing changed, and you quit snoring." "*Sigh* Then why can't you go see what he wants? "Because he's calling for you. Besides, I'm still asleep." At three in the morning, I can't argue with logic like this

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Tina Sandlin, 35, Southport, Florida Jailed After Cutting Off Pet Rabbit's Head In Front Of Two Horrified Children Tina Sandlin, a 35-year-old Florida woman was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly cut off the head of a family's pet rabbit in front of two horrified children. According to the Bay County Sheriff's Office, Sandlin called two children out of their bedrooms on July 15, held their pet rabbit by its ears and then used a knife to cut off the animal's head while the children watched. Investigators say the children were so upset, it took a while for them to share with their father what had happened. Deputies were sent to a Southport residence on Tuesday to question Sandlin, however she was hiding under a mobile home on Newman Point Road when they arrived. Sandlin was eventually drug out from under the mobile home and taken into custody. Sandlin (who also goes by Tina Byng) was booked into the Bay County Jail and charged with two counts of child abuse/affliction of mental cruelty, felony cruelty to animals and resisting an officer without violence. Sandlin was also apprehended on a warrant for an unrelated DUI case. ------------ Considering those eyes, it is very surprising, that they did not search under that trailer for narcotics and paraphenalia.
Tech Support Pits: From: Mark Re: 3 TB hard drive Dear Webby Tiger has a 3 TeraByte hard drive for $120. That seems almost too good a deal. That is barelo more than what Walmart charges for a 1 TB drive. Is it a good deal? Mark Dear Mark That depends on what you want it for. As a back-up or archive drive it is an excellent deal. However, as an active drive it is a big nuisance. Imagine how long a virus scan or defrag will take on a 3 Terabyte drive! Especially with Windows 7, which slows to a crawl during defrag, you would be doing a lot of cussing. For best results keep the C: drive small, reserved for just the Operating System. Put all your programs onto the E: drive, and data that you produce or receive onto the F: drive. Archive and Back-Up should be on the G: drive, which is unplugged except when you actually back up onto it. With Windows7 every little trick helps, and sound drive management like that makes a huge difference. Have FUN! DearWebby

>Thanks to Sandie for this one: You Don't have To Own A Cat To Appreciate This One A couple was dressed and ready to go out for the evening. They turned, on a night light, turned the answering machine on the phone line, covered their pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. They phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and the couple opened the front door to leave their house. The cat they had put out into the back yard scooted back into the house. They didn't want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird. The wife goes out to the taxi while the husband goes inside to get the cat. The cat runs upstairs, the man in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, the wife doesn't want the driver to know the house will be empty for the night. She explains to the taxi driver that her husband will be out soon "He's just going upstairs to say good-bye to my mother." A few minutes later, the husband gets into the cab. "Sorry I took so long," he says, as they drive away. "Stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. Had to poke her with a mop to get her to come out! She tried to take off so I grabbed her by the neck. Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked. I managed to haul the fat ninny downstairs and throw her out into the back yard!" The cab driver hit a parked car.

Arnold and his wife were cleaning out the attic one day when he came across a ticket from the local shoe repair shop. The date stamped on the ticket showed that it was over eleven years old. They both laughed and tried to remember which of them might have forgotten to pick up a pair of shoes over a decade ago. "Do you think the shoes will still be in the shop?" Arnold asked. "Not very likely," his wife said. "It's worth a try," Arnold said, pocketing the ticket. He went downstairs, hopped into the car, and drove to the store. With a straight face, he handed the ticket to the man behind the counter. With a face just as straight, the man said, "Just a minute. I'll have to look for these." He disappeared into a dark corner at the back of the shop. Two minutes later, the man called out, "Here they are!" "No kidding?" Arnold called back. "That's terrific! Who would have thought they'd still be here after all this time." The man came back to the counter, empty-handed. "They'll be ready Thursday," he said calmly.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Christy Wilson, 34, in Somerset, KY Teacher's Aide - Pleads Guilty To Having Sexual Relationship With 14-Year-Old Student Christy Wilson, a 34-year-old teacher's aide at Southern Middle School will soon face sentencing after she pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old student. A Pulaski County grand jury indicted Wilson on four counts of rape back in July, however the jury will not be hearing the case after Wilson pleaded guilty to 3rd degree rape as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors. According to police, Wilson began a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student who attended the same school. The relationship reportedly continued for three years until the victim's family learned about the relationship and contacted Kentucky State Police. "We think probation should not be granted," stated Assistant Commonwealth Attorney, Jeremy Bartley. "She's not eligible and second, she doesn't deserve to be on probation." Wilson has been placed on house arrest during the course of her court proceedings and has been scheduled to appear in court on November 16 for sentencing.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Abby Elsner, 25, in Dayton, Ohio Motorist, 25, Busted After Cop Spots Her Shooting Heroin While Driving An Ohio woman was arrested Friday for DWI -- driving while injecting. A Dayton Police Department officer was driving Friday afternoon when he pulled up next to a vehicle being driven by 25-year-old Abby Elsner. As detailed in a police report, the cop noticed that Elsner-- who had her arms in the air--was sticking herself with a needle. While doing this, she was steering the 2003 Honda Civic with her knees. “I observed she was holding her right forearm in plain view where there was a hypodermic syringe needle sticking out of her arm,” reported Officer Mark Orick. “With her left hand, she was manipulating the needle into her forearm.” Upon realizing that Orick was watching her shoot up, Elsner allegedly removed the needle from her arm and tossed it towards her passenger, 36-year-old Shawn Abby (after pulling the car over, the cop spotted Abby stashing the needle in her waistband). When a subsequent search of the car turned up heroin and drug paraphernalia, Elsner and Abby were arrested for narcotics possession. Pictured in the above mug shot, Elsner is currently being held in the Montgomery County lockup in connection with the September 21 drive-by shooting.
Tech Support Pits: From: Christy Re: What to do when Windows Explorer malfunctions? Dear Webby Every now and then everything on my computer slows down. The little Memory and processor gauges show that everything is maxed out and in the red. Task manager shows that Windows Explorer is hogging way too much memory, even though I have NO Windoes Explorer window open. Closing Windows Explorer via the Task Manager is disastrous, it shuts down the desktop. Kinda schdooopid. The only way to get out of that is to lean on the power button until the machine shuts down. Without saving anything. Is there a better way to cope with that problem in W7 ? Thanks Christy Dear Christy About the only way around that old problem is to save everything, close every program and reboot at the first sign of that slow-down. Adding more RAM apparently does not help. Just shut down properly, after saving and closing everything, and reboot. By the way, try not to do a defrag or a virus scan while you are working, like you used to do with XP. W7 is not as sturdy and tends to go haywire, when you do that. Close all programs and then start a scan or defrag before you go to bed. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Box Building Blocks: When some of us were young we played with "brick' blocks that were made of cardboard. They were large, sturdy, and stack-able and took a lot of abuse. The boxes from juice pouches that are popular now, such as Capri-Sun are just the same size and about as strong. Stuff them with news paper, tape them tightly shut, cover them with what you choose. I have used cloth, brick patterned contact paper, tissue paper and glue - you name it! They are a great frugal replacement for the hard to find, expensive, real thing. By Margaret from Cullowhee NC Once the kids are older, they need smaller and more versatile blocks. Cut regular corrugated cardboard into 1" wide strips, preferably with a paper cutter. Cut the strips into 1", 2", 4", 8" and 16" pieces, but mostly the short sizes. When you got a big pile, make some glue with flour and water. Wheat is fine, but not whole wheat. That makes a lumpy glue. Glue the strips together to make 1" high bricks. There is no need to press them hard, just enough, so that if the cardboard got too wet it does not curl up. Flour glue is quite sticky and in this application just as strong as storebought white glue. Except for the 16" "ceiling beams", these bricks will usually last for one kid. If they are supposed to be a hand-me-down heirloom for a succession of kids, add some color pigment to clear spar or floor varnish and briefly dip the blocks into it. Thread some dental floss through a corrugation hole on each block, so that you can hang them up in the wind after dipping. Do the dipping outside, while wearing disposable gloves. Have FUN!

Jesse Jackson, while visiting a primary school class, found himself in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asks the Rev Jackson if he would like to lead the discussion on the word "tragedy." So the illustrious leader asks the class for an example of a "tragedy." One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a runaway tractor comes along and knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy.? "No," says the Great Jesse Jackson, "that would be an accident." A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 c hildren drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy." "I'm afraid not," explains the exalted spiritual leader. "That's what we would call a great loss." The room goes silent. No other children volunteer. Rev. Jackson searches the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?" Finally at the back of the room raises a hand. In a quiet voice says: "If a plane carrying the Rev. Jackson were struck by lightning and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy." "Fantastic!" exclaims Jackson, "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?" "Well," says the boy, "because it sure as heck wouldn't be a great loss, and it probably wouldn't be an accident either."

Wanda's dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman, "I'll leave the key under the mat.

But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot!" "I REPEAT, DO NOT TALK TO MY PARROT!" When the repairman arrived at Wanda's apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest looking bulldog he has ever seen. But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the repairman go about his work. The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing and name calling. Finally the repairman couldn't contain himself any longer and yelled, "Awww, shut up, you stupid bird!" To which the parrot replied, "Get him, Spike"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Kelly Gibbs Jailed After Motorist Finds Toddler Wandering Naked In Street, Mom's House Filled With Empty Alcohol Bottles Kelly Gibbs, a 41-year-old Florida woman was jailed Saturday after her 3-year-old son was found was found wandering naked in the street, however she didn't realize that the child was even missing even though several hours had passed. According to New Port Richey police, officers were dispatched at around 12:30 p.m. after a motorist found a naked child walking in the street and called 911. Investigators say the motorist stayed with the child until help arrived. New Port Richey police officers, along with deputies with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, canvased the surrounding neighborhoods in an attempt to locate the child's residence. Officers used a K-9 unit to track the boy's path back to an apartment complex where his mother resides. During the search, a resident at the apartment complex recognized the boy and told officers where they could find his mother. When officers arrived at Gibbs apartment, she was unaware that the child had gone missing. Officers noted that the residence was unkempt and full of empty alcoholic beverage bottles. When officers attempted to handcuff Gibbs, she pushed an officer away and resisted arrest. She was eventually taken into custody without further incident. Gibbs was booked into the Pasco County Jail and charged with child neglect and resisting arrest without violence. She was released two hours later after posting an $1,100 bond. Gibbs was previously arrested in May 2010 on a charge of domestic battery.
Tech Support Pits: From: Ron Re: Is McAfee for life? Hi Webby do I have to purchase McAfee every year or is it a one time purchase? I really need something to speed up my computer it is dragging really bad lately will this help to gain some speed back? Dear Ron McAfee is about $30 a year, if you use my link. McAfee at discount Two to three times more if you buy it by other methods. McAfee will get rid of all malware. That brings you to a level playing field without any burned out cars in the way. Then run CrapCleaner to reclaim RAM,that was used and not returned. Finally, after that, when you have probably regained half of the sped, that your machine had on Day 1, get SmartFix That will take c are of the registry and the defragging, and a few other things. W7 is slow enough as it is, and there is no point in handicapping it on top of that. Just consider McAfee and SmartFix as part of the cost of being online. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Sponge Eyeshadow Applicator for Cleaning Keyboard: I have found the best item for cleaning around keys on the computer. A clean, sponge eyeshadow applicator. I always have extras of these (I use brushes instead). I like them because they hold up much better than Q tips, and they can get into the little crevices. I dampen mine a tad and boy it really gets the crud up! When you are done, you can almost roll the fuzzies off of the applicator and it can be reused. By Joynchocolate I don't use the eye shadow or the keyboard on laptops, and always use an external keyboard. To clean those, I first slam it upside down on the porch railing, and then vacuum it out. After that, I use a big, soft sponge dipped into soapy dish-water, and squeezed just enough, so that it does not drip on the floor on the way out to the porch, and rub the still upside down keyboard from underneath. Sponge, not foam rubber! Then I let it air-dry for five minutes. That is all they really need to be as clean as freshly washed dishes. If you don't have a sponge, use a soft, fuzzy face cloth.

The social studies teacher had just finished a unit on war and peace. "How many of you," he asked, "would say you're opposed to war?" Not surprisingly, all hands went up. The teacher asked, "Who'll give us the reason for being opposed to war?" A large, bored-looking boy in the back of the room raised his hand. "Johnny?" the teacher said. "I hate war," Johnny said, "because wars make history, and I hate History!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Pamela Smallis, 49, Moon TWP, PA Former Daycare Teacher - Charged With Child Pornography, Using Children To Sell Drugs Pamela Smallis, a 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman was jailed Sunday after police allegedly found child pornography on her cell phone. According to Moon Township police, Smallis was initially arrested on drug charges back in April after a lengthy investigation that involved Moon Township police and the state Attorney General's Office. During the operation, investigators seized Smallis' cell phone which was later found to contain 33 photographs and 2 videos showing naked children engaged in sexual activity. Investigators say Smallis can be heard directing the children as she video-taped them in various sexual acts. In one video, Smallis allegedly recorded two young girls and a young boy during a sexually explicit shower scene. Smallis, who previously operated a day care center, was booked into the Allegheny County Jail and charged with 16 counts of unlawful contact with a minor, five counts of sexual exploitation of children and five counts of child endangerment. Her bond has been set at $50,000. She will also face at least 15 drug charges stemming from an undercover operation in which she and her children allegedly sold drugs to undercover informants on five separate occasions between Nov. 14, 2011 and Dec. 16, 2011. A preliminary court hearing on the case has been set for September 25.
Tech Support Pits: From: Mary Lou Re: IE stops working Dear Webby My Internet Explorer keeps popping up saying "Your Internet Explorer has stopped working." I need this web site to send emails, read emails, play favorite games, etc...in fact for everything I do on my computer.Internet Explorer is my default site,which is to open everything. Any suggestions as to what I can do to get it up and running again? Thanks, Mary Lou Dear Mary Lou That is fairly common and the easiest remedy for that is to upgrade to FireFox. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/ Millions of people have done that, and as far as i know, nobody has ever gone back to Internet Explorer. The alternative to that is to re-install windows and hope, that would fix Internet Explorer. Running a good Anti-Virus program like McAfee is always a good idea. It won't fix Internet Explorer, but it might prevent similar damage to other programs. By the way, you still get the big discount when you use this McAfee link. Have FUN! DearWebby

And if you are anywhere near as stubborn as I am, you will keep trying at least a few more times to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't. 1. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. 2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction. I told you so. And, there's nothing you can do about it! Go ahead KEEP TRYING ALL YOU WANT ! Have a great day! Now get back to work!!

On a military training exercise, the British divisional command radio operators were getting very bored one quiet night, when breaking the silence a voice asked over the air, "Are there any friendly bears listening?" After a moment, another voice replied, "Yes, I'm a friendly bear," and then another voice, "I'm a friendly bear too!" At this point, the Officer at Headquarters grabbed his microphone and let loose a blistering tirade at the operators for fooling around on an radio link. When he had finished, there was silence for about ten seconds. Then a small voice said, "He's not a friendly bear, let's go to our secret channel." They all muted their mikes and went to sleep, while the officer went nuts trying to find what secret channel they were using.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Maxine Romano, 23, in Springfield, Mass Jailed After Attacking Officer With Stiletto High Heel Springfield, Mass (The Weekly Vic Maxine Romano, a 23-year-old Connecticut woman was jailed Monday after she allegedly attacked a police officer with a high heel shoe. According to Springfield police, officers were called to the MVP Bar at the Sheraton Hotel around 10:30 on reports that a woman was intoxicated and acting in a belligerent manner. Employees at the bar told dispatchers that Romano was cursing loudly, making fun of other customers and refused to leave the bar when asked. When officers arrived, they offered to call Romano a cab so she could get home safely, but she told them that she would only get in the cab if they paid for it. She then began acting erratic, swearing and refusing to calm down. Investigators say Romano told officers that she owned a tanning salon and that she would "have their jobs" by morning. When she arrived at the police station, officers had to help her sit down because she was too drunk to stand up. That's when Romano allegedly lunged at an officer and stabbed him with the stiletto heal of her shoe. The officer received a cut to his leg as a result of the attack. Romano was booked into jail and charged with trespassing and assault and battery on a police officer. She denied the charges and was released on her own recognizances. She is scheduled to appear in court on September 25th.
Tech Support Pits: From: Glen Re: Lightning protection for DSL Dear Webby, We are moving to a hilltop and are going to be hit with lightning proabbly as often as the previous owner. I am isolating the power with an electric motor driven generator, so I am not worried about power, just data. What do you recommend to use for lightning protection for the phone and DSL line? Glen Dear Glen Panamax warrants Towermax units and modules for life. They also have a protected equipment warrranty, which means if you ever do take damage from a surge, Panamax will pay to repair or replace the equipment. http://snipurl.com/i2rh L-Com also has all kinds of DSL lightning protectors. However, I would also add active lightning strike prevention to the building. First, get perfect grounding through metal water and gas lines, plus ground rods. Then put lightning brushes or fans (bundles of sharpened metal rods) every two feet on your roof top. Connect them to ground. They ionize the air and repell and divert lightning. Next put up a tall ham radio tower or any similar metal tower six feet from the house and 50% higher than the house. Ground that to a separate ground rod system that is not directly connected to the house grounding system. If you set it up like that, even if lightning is headed for your house, it will zig-zag over to the tower and go harmlessly to ground. The tower, even if it is made from galvanized sheet metal, won't be harmed by a lightning strike. Have FUN! DearWebby

I read that "The Well" was sold to an investor group consisting 
of long time members.

The Well was the first wide open online community. I remember
when it was accessible only via direct dial, befroe the Internet.
With a 3.4 KHz modem that got expensive in a hurry! 
There were no graphics, of course, except file transfer,
but even fast reading and fast replying hit the phone bill
quite noticeably. 

I remember trying it briefly, and even though I thought it 
was pretty neat, I did not visit after I got the phone bill for 
that month.

In the meantime The Well is of course on the Internet.
You can visit it at http://well.com
just find a "conference" you are interested in, and chime in.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Jennifer Fletcher, 42, Massillon, Ohio Charged With Draining Son's Bank Account While He Serves In Afghanistan, Arrested In Stolen Car Jennifer Fletcher, a 42-year-old Ohio woman was arraigned Monday after she allegedly raided her son's bank account and cashed his tax refund checks while he was deployed to Afghanistan. According to police, Fletcher withdrew approximately $16,000 from her son's bank account between March 2010 and April 2011. Her son was deployed to Afghanistan at the time while serving in the U.S. Army. Fletcher also allegedly forged her son's name to cash checks including a tax refund check that she then deposited in her own account. Fletcher reportedly gained access to her son's tax and account information when she agreed to file his tax return while he was deployed overseas, police say. Investigators say Fletcher was arrested Sunday after an officer stopped her because the car she was driving had been reported stolen. Felony warrants had been issued for Fletcher's arrest in July after her son's wife reported the fraud and forgeries in May of this year. During a police interview, Fletcher reportedly admitted to depositing and using her son's money. "She used more than just the tax returns," said Lawrence Township Police Chief Mark Brink.

Tech Support Pits: From: Laura Re: Printer spitting paper Dear Webby, My Brother printer keeps spitting paper onto the floor when it ejects the printed pages. Is there a way to stop that? Laura Dear Laura That's normal for many Brother printers. Just take a wire coat hanger, bend one end so that it forms a 5 inch wide rectangle. Stick the other end under the printer, with the nice rectangle end projecting four inches beyond the built in paper catcher. Bend it up slightly, and it will securely stop all the printed pages, as they come flying out. I have seen people put some plywood or shelving under the printer, sticking out six to eight inches on the output side, but the paper occasionlly still sails out over that. The bent up coat hangers seem to work the most reliably. Have FUN! DearWebby

"This hotel stinks!" a guest complained when he showed up at the front desk to check out. "What's wrong?" I asked. "I got no sleep. Every 15 minutes this loud banging sound woke me up!" I apologized for the noise and checked him out. A few minutes later, a couple showed up. Again, I made the mistake of asking how their stay was. "Terrible!" they said. "The guy in the next room was snoring so loudly that we had to bang on the wall every 15 minutes to wake him up!"

>From Bill Last October my wife bought a magnolia tree from the local nursery, but after only a few weeks the leaves shriveled. It appeared to be on its last legs. My wife took some leaf samples and marched into the nursery to demand an explanation. "I know exactly what's wrong with your magnolia," said the manager. "Good," said my wife. "What's it suffering from?" "Autumn," he replied.

>From Chris I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that. "Why?" my daughter asked. "Because it's been on the ground, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty and probably has germs" I replied. At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Mommy, how do you know all this stuff?" "Uh," I was thinking quickly. "All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mommy." We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information. "OH...I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the test, then you have to be the daddy." "Exactly" I replied back with a big smile on my face.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Andrea Conners,33, Ft. Thomas, KY Jailed After Entire School Begins Talking About Sexual Relationship With Student Andrea Conners, a 33-year-old business education teacher at Highlands High School, has been indicted after she allegedly had sex with a student. According to police, an investigation was launched last Wednesday after rumors began circulating around the school alleging that Conners had become engaged in a sexual relationship with a student. Conners abruptly resigned from the school after school administrators questioned her about the allegations. Investigators say Conners was engaged in a sexual relationship with the student between October 1, 2011 and November 30, 2011. Police have not released details of the student's age and gender. Connors, who has worked at the school for 8 years, has two children and is married to the principal of a Cincinnati area middle school. She was booked into jail and charged with first-degree sex abuse. Her bond has been set at $5,000. Is this turning into an epidemic? Somebody could start a site, featuring 2 - 3 additional teachers every day, who have been jailed for picking gossipy students.

Well, that is what would have happened, if a spammer's sending address was real. Unfortunately, they aren't, unless they forge your address into the sender field. You can put whatever you want into the sender field. Emperor-Fred-VIII@stinebiser.org Two-Foot-Dinger-Fred@hoemail.com Harem-Master-Fred@whitehouse.gov Whatever you want. Since spammers never use the same sender address twice, except when they forge yours into the sender field, it is pointless to blacklist them or filter by the sender address. What you need to do is put MailWasher onto your Santa list, get it approved by your loving wife, and start having fun! That spam would never make it through MailWasher. You would never see it. You set MailWasher to nuke that kind of crap right on the server, without ever showing it in the list. Murdered in the dark, the way it is supposed to be done. You would see the pie slice named "Enlarge" getting fatter. That's all. And that is all you should really ever see about that kind of crap. You will probably also make a filter for certain fake watches, and one for fake UPS and FedEx notices. And so on. It gets to be a fun game to outwit the spammers. So, go for it! MailWasher is just under $30. Put it onto your Santa list, unless you have a birthday between now and Christmas. By the way, re taking care of yourself better, look at the Old School ad, that I found just for people like you, and put into the Humor Letter.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Give Each Child Their Own Color: I have four kids in my house. To make things easier, each kid has their own color (green, blue, red, pink/yellow). we have three boys and a girl. Most things come in green, blue, red, and yellow like plates, bowls, cups, tooth brushes, etc. Our only girl likes the color pink, but most of the time I can't find pink so I get her yellow. That is why her color is pink/yellow. The main reason for the color system was when the kids were done eating dinner they all wanted dessert. The rule is "you have to finish what is on your plate to get dessert". There was always one plate that was left with food still on it, but each kid said, "That's not my plate! I ate all mine!" I never knew whose it was, but with the color system, NOW I know. These days, everything in our house comes in colors.

A woman was out golfing one day when she hit the ball into the woods. She went in to look for it and found a frog in a trap. The frog said to her, "If you release me from this trap, I will grant you three wishes." The woman freed the frog, and the frog said, "Thank you, but I failed to mention that there was a condition to your wishes. Whatever you wish for, your husband will get times ten." The woman said, "That's okay." and for her first wish, she wanted to be the most beautiful woman in the world. The frog warned her, "You do realize that this wish will also make your husband the most handsome man in the world, an Adonis whom women will flock to. " The woman replied, "That's okay, because I will be the most beautiful woman and he will have eyes only for me." So, KAZAM! she's the most beautiful woman in the world. For her second wish, she wanted to be the richest woman in the world. The frog said, "That will make your husband the richest man in the world and he will be ten times richer than you." The woman said, "That's okay, because what's mine is his and what's his is mine." So, KAZAM! she's the richest woman in the world. The frog then inquired about her third wish, and she answered, "I'd like a mild heart attack." ADDITIONAL: But wait! There's more... The man actually had a heart attack, ten times MILDER than the one his wife had. Golfers!

Are automatic updates a good idea? 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, September 19

It is sad to see how so many Muslim clerics use the local
hostile feelings against America, that were caused or 
drastically increased by Obama, as a religious issue.
If you listen to them, a Muslim's first duty is to obey their
imam, and the second duty is to hate America. 

Listen to their chants: "God is great! Hate America!"

That is not going to get them anywhere, however, it does
remind me of Iran. The Shah was introducing democracy,
taking the power away from the clerics. 

They got rid of him the hard way, and the US did not back 
him up, or even take care of his heart problem in a US 
hospital. They shuffled him off to Egypt.

That showed to the third world clerics that they don't have
to accept democracy. They just have to bitch loudly enough
against America, and can grab the power, 
just like the clerics did in Iran.

And nobody in Washington can see that. 

Have FUN!

A gorilla walked into a drugstore and ordered a $3.50 chocolate sundae. He put a ten-dollar bill on the counter to pay for it. The clerk thought, what could a gorilla know about money? So he gave the gorilla a single dollar bill in change. As he did, the clerk said, "You know, we don't get too many gorillas in here." "No wonder," the gorilla replied, when you have to rip the staff's heads off to get correct change."

They sold him a bottle of small white pellets. He was to bury one in her yard every night at midnight for a month. He returned to the witches six weeks later excited and thankful.

Tech Support Pits: From: Jaye Re: Unattended update Hi Dear Webby, I have a question for you. I have my computer set to update automatically. Do I have to leave it running all the time for that, or can I shut it down, when I go to bed? Thanks Jaye Dear Jaye If you want to get the updates automatically, right when they come out, then yes, you would have to leave your computer on, especially the second Tuesday of every month, when Microsoft comes out with the newest bug "fixes". They kill some of the old bugs and put fresh ones in there. I usually decline the Tuesday updates and wait for the reaction to them on the net. If everybody gets hysterical about the newest update, I'll skip it until the word is out, that the bugfix has gotten fixed. Usually they fix them within 3-4 days and by the weekend it is safe to update. Have FUN! DearWebby

EVEN GOD ENJOYS A GOOD LAUGH There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black: 1. He called everyone brother . 2. He liked Gospel. 3. He couldn't get a fair trial. But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish: 1. He went into His Father's business. 2. He lived at home until he was 33. 3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his Mother was sure He was God. But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian: 1. He talked with His hands. 2. He had wine with His meals. 3. He used olive oil. But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was a Californian: 1. He never cut His hair. 2. He walked around barefoot all the time. 3. He started a new religion. But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was an American Indian: 1. He was at peace with nature. 2. He ate a lot of fish. 3. He talked about the Great Spirit. But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish: 1. He never got married. 2. He was always telling stories. 3. He loved green pastures. But the most compelling evidence of all - 3 proofs that Jesus was a woman: 1. He fed a crowd at a moment's notice when there was no food. 2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn't get it. 3. And even when He was dead, He had to get up because there was work to do. AMEN

>From Adam Dear Webby, once you had a list of definitions about common phrases that women use. Can you please print them again? Thanks Adam Yes, sure. Here they are: Definitions of words and terms for men so they might understand what women are really saying. We suggest that each woman make a copy for the man in her life. FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks this will cause you to have one of those arguments. FIVE MINUTES: This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an even trade. NOTHING: This means "something", and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with 'Fine'. GO AHEAD (With Raised Eyebrows) This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine". GO AHEAD (Normal Eyebrows) This means, "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care". You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off. LOUD SIGH This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing". SOFT SIGH Again, not a word, but a non-verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay content. THAT'S OKAY This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a "Raised Eyebrow." GO AHEAD At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble. PLEASE DO This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance with the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay". THANKS A woman is thanking you. Do not faint. Just say you're welcome. THANKS A LOT This is much different from "Thanks." A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have offended her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh." Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you "Nothing".

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Shanice Lambert, 37, Childress, Texas Interstate child porno and sex by teacher's aide Shanice Lambert, a 37-year-old teacher's aide at Childress ISD, has been indicted on child porn charges after she allegedly drove a student across state lines, took sexually explicit photographs of him and enticed him to have sex with her. According to a federal grand jury indictment, Lambert recorded a student's sexual activity back in February and then sent the recording to different states. She also drove the student from Texas to Oklahoma on two occasions (Feb 11 and Feb 12) for the purpose of enticing him to have sex with her. Authorities have not released the student's age, however the indictment confirmed that the student is under the age of 18. An investigation was first launched in March of this year after school officials were informed that an inappropriate relationship had developed between Lambert and the student . School administrators conducted an initial investigation before turning the case over to Texas Rangers and Child Protective Services. Lambert was initially arrested in March and charged with sexual assault of a child and improper relationship between an educator and student. The school district initially placed Lambert on administrative leave, however administrators have since stated that Lambert no longer works for the district. According to the four-count indictment, Lambert now faces charges of production of child pornography, enticement of a minor and two counts of interstate transportation of a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.
Tech Support Pits: From: Ron Re: Can't send large files Dear Webby I am having a problem emailing a file over 20mb. I used both gmail and outlook express with the same results. The file is a talk @ 68mb. I download larger files all the time but cannot seem to send one . How can I get around the limitation? Thanks for all your help. RON P Dear Ron The limit is most likely your ISP. Normally files that size are not emailed on purpose, and those limits are in place to stop Gramma from emailing you her messed up Windows7 to fix it for her. When I have to send files that size I either upload them to a site and email a link, or I use Skype and just drag it into the chat window. Even though Microsoft spent 8 Billion dollars to buy Skype and make sure Google did not get it, it is still free. You get it from http://skype.com Just download and install it, and tell your recipient to do the same. Then you can transfer files of any size back and forth without any hassle. If both of you have decent connections, you can transfer files at about the same speed as to or from a USB drive. This is not something new. A lot of us have been doing that for a dozen years or more with Skype and with similar programs before Skype. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Linseed Oil to Remove Road Tar Use That Bucket of Soapy Water: After you've hand-washed your vehicle, don't pour out the bucket of soapy water solution just yet-there's still a lot of cleaning power in those suds; pour it on dirty spots on your patio, carport/gargage floor, picnic table, you-name-it! Scrub the dirty spots with a stiff broom, then rinse with clean water. Voila! You've gotten double duty from your bucket of detergent! By Becky Almost all soaps and detergents are fairly good fertilizers, some are excellent fertilizers. That is why weeds love the cracks in your driveway! As a general rule of thumb, if the soap or cleaner does not hurt your hands, the plants will love it. The same goes for any grey water (water from the sinks, tub, shower and washing machine. That is FERTILIZER, and already paid for! If you have a garden, sneak that into your rain barrel and use it for irrigation. Have FUN!

Good Morning,  !
Today is Monday, September 17

Thank you, Ruby!

Now Egyptian clerics are demanding that the US enact laws
against anybody making fun of them and their religion.
Why?
Because Obama apologized,
and thereby put the US into a defensive retreat, 
forcing them to attack with escalated demands.
Obama, a Grand Master of the Entitlement Game, 
should have known to expect that.

Summer vacation was over and the teacher asked little about the family trip. "We visited my grandmother in Minneapolis, Minnesota." The teacher asked, "Good, can you tell the class how you spell that?" said, "I was just kidding, actually, we went to Ohio."
While standing in line at a hotel counter, I noticed that the guy ahead of me not only looked like a typical Scotsman, but was studying the posted room rates like he was preparing for a long and tedious haggling session. So I pulled out the print-out of my on-line reservation (at a better rate than he will ever get, no matter how long he haggles), and my VISA, and held them in a way, so that the lady behind the counter could see them, and shot her a mischievious smile. Quite predictably, she waved me to the side, took the reservation and the VISA, greeted me with my first name like an old friend, swiped the card through the slot on the keyboard, and handed it back with a room card. The whole transaction took maybe 4 - 5 seconds. While I was putting the papers away and gathered my stuff, I overheard her explaining to the Scotsman that he could have a room with a shower or one with a tub. "Wot's the difference?" he asked. "Well, Sir," she replied, "in a tub you can sit down."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to David Weber, 53, Miami Beach, Florida Jailed After Stealing Credit Card From Parked Car, Attempting To Buy Drinks From Bartender Who Owns Car David Weber, a 53-year-old Florida bonehead was jailed Tuesday after he allegedly stole a credit card from a parked car, went into a bar to buy a drink with the card, then discovered that card he stole belonged to the bartender who was serving drinks that night. According to Miami Beach police, Weber broke into a car parked inside a parking garage Monday night and stole a credit card out of it. He then went into a nearby bar and presented the card while ordering a drink. Investigators say the bartender working that night recognized the card as his and called police. During questioning, Weber claimed that he found the card on the ground and denied having anything to do with burglarizing the bartender's car. Weber was booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail and charged with credit card fraud and theft.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Linseed Oil to Remove Road Tar Use That Bucket of Soapy Water: After you've hand-washed your vehicle, don't pour out the bucket of soapy water solution just yet-there's still a lot of cleaning power in those suds; pour it on dirty spots on your patio, carport/gargage floor, picnic table, you-name-it! Scrub the dirty spots with a stiff broom, then rinse with clean water. Voila! You've gotten double duty from your bucket of detergent! By Becky Almost all soaps and detergents are fairly good fertilizers, some are excellent fertilizers. That is why weeds love the cracks in your driveway! As a general rule of thumb, if the soap or cleaner does not hurt your hands, the plants will love it. The same goes for any grey water (water from the sinks, tub, shower and washing machine. That is FERTILIZER, and already paid for! If you have a garden, sneak that into your rain barrel and use it for irrigation. Have FUN!

At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 7-year-old baseball players aside and asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?" The little boy nodded in the affirmative. "Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?" The little boy nodded yes. "So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know, when an out is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the umpire, or call him a pecker-head. Do you understand all that?" Again the little boy nodded. He continued, "And when I take you out of the game so another boy gets a chance to play, it's not good sportsmanship to call your coach 'a dumb asshole' is it?" Again the little boy nodded. "Good," said the coach. "Now go over there and explain all that to your mother."

How to filter mail that appears as if it was from me 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, September 16

Some of you will remember Dorothy and Leo, the wolf and bear
defenders from Alaska. When Leo retired from the Federal 
Forest Service, they moved to Montana. Montana is not doing 
any aerial hunting of grizzlies or wolves, so they had to adopt 
a different project: Monarch Butterflies.

It seems the annual Monarch migration is endangered and 
needs urgent help, and they are pitching in with all kinds of
rewards. Instead of standing between grizzlies and hunters,
they built a Monarch butterfly migration way-station.

A dad walks into a market with his young son. The kid is holding a quarter. Suddenly, the boy starts choking, going blue in the face. The dad realizes the boy has swallowed the quarter and starts panicking, shouting for help. A well dressed, attractive, but serious looking woman in a blue business suit is sitting at a coffee bar in the market reading her newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. At the sound of the commotion, she looks up, puts her coffee cup down on the saucer, neatly folds the newspaper and places it on the counter, gets up from her seat and makes her way, unhurried, across the market. Reaching the boy, the woman carefully takes hold of the boy's testicles and starts to squeeze, gently at first and then ever more firmly. After a few seconds the boy convulses violently and coughs up the quarter, which the woman deftly catches in her free hand. Releasing the boy, the woman hands the coin to the father and walks back to her seat in the coffee bar without saying a word. As soon as he is sure that his son has suffered no lasting ill effects, the father rushes over to the woman and starts thanking her saying, "I've never seen anybody do anything like that before, it was fantastic. Are you a doctor?" "No," the woman replies, "a Divorce Attorney."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Adrian Dagnino, 29, in Carlsbad, NM Mexican National On Trial For Raping 9-Year-Old Girl, Bites Off Officer's Finger During Trial Adrian Dagnino, a 29-year-old New Mexico man on trial for raping a 9-year-old girl, made matters worse for himself when he allegedly bit off a transport officer's finger during the hearing. According the Eddy County Sheriff's Office, Dagnino's jury trial was in progress Friday when Dagnino became disruptive and the judge ordered that he be removed from the courtroom. Court deputies were preparing to remove Dagnino when he allegedly became combative and bit off a large part of an officer's finger. "Adrian apparently grabbed a hold of the transport officer's hand and bit off a portion of his small finger - up to the second knuckle," said Ernest Mendoza of the Eddy County Sheriff's Office. Investigators say Dagnino was eventually removed from the courtroom while the injured officer, 63-year-old Michael Sweeney, was transported to a local hospital. Court records indicate that Dagnino, a Mexican nationa, was jailed in 2010 after he allegedly raped a 9-year-old girl in Carlsbad. He was found guilty of criminal sexual contact with a minor when his trial resumed on Monday. Dagnino now faces a possible charge of aggravated battery and deportation back to Mexico after his sentencing.
Tech Support Pits: From: Carla Re: Mail appearing as if from me Dear Webby I get a lot of spam that looks as if it had been sent by me to me. Well, I am one of those silly dingbats, who sends memos to myself. Instead of filing stuff properly right away, I mail it to myself, and then put it into the appropriate mailbox, for example recipes or weight-loss. Apparently there are a lot of people doing that and all that spam seems to capitalize on that. Now, I can't really filter out ALL mail from me, because some of it is legitimate. I realize, the filters in Gmail are just single-shot and can't do anything as tricky as that, can MailWasher clean that? Thanks Carla Dear Carla Yes, sure. MaiWasher has been taking care of those sneaky spams for me for a dozen years, or more. I started using MailWasher, when it was just an experiment in beta test, and a voluntary donation got me a lifetime license. Well, it turned into a lifetime license for the original version, but even that has already all the capabilities, that I need. The trick is to preface the subject line in mails to yourself with some goofy symbol, that the spammers are not likely to use. For example use the ~ from the upper left coner of the keyboard: ~ RECIPE Chocolate-Cherry-Cheesecake Then in MailWasher you make a filter: CONTAINS in the FROM carla@yourdomain.com AND DOES NOT CONTAIN in the SUBJECT ~ What I got in CAPS is stuff you simply select from a pull-down. Then in the disposal area you tell it to dump those mails without notifying you and without showing them in the list. That's right, just murder them in the dark, on the server, without bothering you at all. You have to give the filter a short name. Well, you COULD give it a long one, but the reason for a short one is that it looks a lot tidier in the pie chart, that shows you how many spams each filter has killed. Outwitting the spammers turns into a fun sport with those filters. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Linseed Oil to Remove Road Tar Road tar and asphalt which splatters up and sticks to an automobile is almost impossible to remove. That is, unless you first saturate the spots with linseed oil. Allow the oil to soften the tar for a few minutes and you'll find that the grime rubs right off with a piece of coarse cloth. By duckie-do from Cortez, CO If you can't get linseed oil, or if it is too expensive in your area, WD40 works well too. Remember to re-wax the cleaned off area to protect the paint job! Have FUN!

I just heard that the European Soccer league had to
get tough on improper behavior again. This time, it was
the team from Vienna. They got fined a HUGE sum of money,
and thei next game, against Trondheim, will be an empty
seat game. NO spectators inside the stadium, just a few
TV teams. 

That is one way to stop that nonsense.
I wish there was a way to do the same in the Arab world.
Well, Canada has started to do the equivalent by pulling
the Canadian Embassy from Iran, and kicking the Iranian
diplomats out of Canada.

Tech Support Pits: From: Brenda Re: How to make filters in Gmail Good Morning, I love your newsletter it gives me a start to the day. I have a question about gmail. How do you check your filters? I made a filter for spam and need to make sure that it isn't killing some of my regular mail. Since I wasn't sure on how to create one I want to make sure that I did it right. Can you help me? Sincerely Brenda Dear Brenda take a typical spam, for example one about fake watches. Look in it for a phrase, that is not likely to occur in any legitimate email. Then click on settings, filters, make filter and step through that. It is not quite as intuitive as it could and should be, but you'll figure it out. In the process of making the filter, you can TEST it. If it shows the mails you want filtered out and nothing else, then you have a winner. However, if it shows way too much and also catches good stuff, then you have to pick a longer phrase, or a different one, until a test shows JUST the bad stuff. The Gmail filters are not as easy and nowhere near as versatile as the ones in Mailwasher, but they do work quite well in combination with Gmail's already pretty good spam filtering. After making new filters it is a good idea to look in the Spam folder now and then to see if maybe one of your filters is casting it's net a bit too wide. By the way, you CAN use Mailwasher to wash your Gmail. With it's filters you can get really precise, and also combine many different rules. You can use CONTAINS ..., but DOES NOT CONTAIN, OR CONTAINS, and so on, and even use all the Regular Expressions and get really mean. You can use real programmer stuff, but just click it together with your mouse. The only thing you actually type or paste is the phrase it has to look for. Making filters to outwit the spammers becomes a real strategy game. The reward is not just clean email, but looking at the colorful pie chart in MailWasher to see which of your filters nabbed the most. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keeping Trash Bags in Place When I buy trash bags that don't like to stay in place, I simply measure off a length of elastic, sew it together and fit it over the trash can. When the bag is put into the can we simply pull the elastic over the edges and this keeps it from moving. We never take the elastic off, (except to clean it) we simply push it down a little, lift out the bag, and replace it.

A young Navajo man excitedly calls his mother to say he's been in love awhile, she's the ideal girl, and he is going marry her. "Oh, that's wonderful. Hurry up and bring her over," his mother says with the excitement and impatience typical of mothers. "Not so soon," he laughs. "I want to see how well you know your son. I'm going to bring her over with two friends. You guess which one is her." The next day, he brings three beautiful Navajo women into his mother's house, sits them down on the couch, and they chat pleasantly for awhile. He then says, "Okay, guess which one I'm going to marry." She immediately replies, "The one on the right." "That's amazing! You're right. How did you know?" "I don't like her."

Good Morning,  !
Today is Friday, September 14
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!



Twelve years ago yesterday Iraqi troops stormed the 
residence of the French Ambassador in Kuwait.
Iraq has since learned, the hard way, that Embassies
and Ambassadors are supposed to be protected islands
in whatever hostilities are going on. That is "Civilization 001".

They have been rebooted to the level of chaos, where people
are just starting to recognize Embassies and Ambassadors.

"For stealing a bread truck," replied the offender's wife, nervously fingering her mantilla. "Is he a good husband?" "No," she replied frankly, blushing a bit. "He beats me when he gets drunk, he bullies our children, he's unfaithful, and really not much good at all." "It sounds to me as though you're better off without him," said the Governor. "Why on earth do you want him out of jail?" "Well," she explained, "we're out of bread again."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Maisa Alvarez, 42. Lake Wales, Florida Jailed After Binding Son's Hands Together, Repeatedly Stabbing Him In Chest With Steak Knife Maisa Alvarez, a 42-year-old Florida woman was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly tied her 7-year-old son's hands together and then stabbed him repeatedly in the chest and arms. According to Lake Wales police, officers were dispatched to the family's home after Alvarez called 911 and told dispatchers that her son had been stabbed. Emergency responders and police arrived at the scene to find the boy suffering from at least 10 stab wounds. The boy was airlifted to Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries. Investigators say Alvarez bound the boy's hands together and then began stabbing him in the chest with a steak knife. The boy also received several stab wounds when he attempted to defend himself with his arms. Alvarez told detectives that she didn't realize she was stabbing her son until he attempted to defend himself. She was booked into the Polk County Jail and charged with first-degree attempted murder and aggravated child abuse.
Tech Support Pits: From: Tom Re: Shortcuts to sites Dear Webby Is there anyway to put a short cut to a favorite internet site on my desktop? Tom Dear Tom There sure is, but it's a secret. You have to swear never to tell it to an officer or burocrat who outranks you. Millions of readers in the military and in companies, where they are not allowed email newsletters like the Humor Letter, depend on you to keep it secret. OK, here is the secret procedure: Go to that site, for example http://webby.com/humor Add it to the Favorites or Bookmarks, so that your browser saves the favicon, the little icon on the left of the address bar. Grab that favicon on the left side of the address bar and drag it to an empty space on your desktop. Hit F2 and rename the icon title to something related to work, like Taxtables. If the icon that shows up is too obvious, change the icon to a spreadsheet or word processor icon or something that looks like it might be work related. That is all there is to it! Have FUN!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Double Thread When Sewing Buttons To make sewing a button on easier and much faster, cut a long piece of thread. Select a needle with a bit larger than usual eye and double the thread in half. Thread the doubled end through the eye and now you have 4 strands of thread to work with. When you make the knot, you will be tying the 4 strands together. Twice the amount of thread to sew with and fewer stitches through the button.

A minister was planning a wedding at the close of the Sunday morning service. After the benediction he had planned to call the couple down to be married for a brief ceremony before the congregation. For the life of him, he couldn't think of the names of those who were to be married. "Will those wanting to get married please come to the front?" he requested. Immediately, nine single ladies, seven widows, two widowers, and three single men stepped to the front.
The newly-married husband came home from the office to find his young wife in floods of tears. "Darling, whatever is the matter?" he asked. "Sweetheart," she sobbed, "the most terrible thing has happened! I cooked my very first Beef Bourguignon for you, and I got it out of the oven to season it, and the phone rang. When I came back from answering the phone," she sobbed again. "I found that the cat had eaten it!" "Don't worry, darling," said her husband. "Don't cry. We can get a new cat tomorrow."

How to civilize Explorer 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, September 13

Thank you very much, Georgina!

It looks like the US is slowly starting to realize, why Gaddafi
was a so easily badmouthed villain. The same as with Saddam
in Iraq. Yes, by democratic and civilized standards, he was
a real asshole. He never would have fit into the Vatican.
Washington, maybe, but not the Vatican!

Gaddafi knew that the only way to make his barbarians behave
was to scare them just a bit more, than they were scaring him.

After the US and Britain and France and Italy spent Billions
testing all their new weapons and using up all the stale-dated
bombs to defeat Gaddafi's military and government and 
ultimately him too, there was no civilized force left to scare 
the barbarians.

I never liked Gaddafi, but I was always against armed outside
intervention. When the people are ready, they will accomplish
change without outside help. Forcing change on them before
they are ready, that just sets them back even further.

Have FUN!

People who work sitting down get paid more than people who work standing up. --- Ogden Nash The trouble with facts is that there are so many of them. --- Samuel McChord Crothers
Shortly after the birth of their second child, a husband offered to take his wife shopping for a new dress. He endured more than two hours of listening to her complaints about which figure flaw each dress accentuated. As she emerged from the dressing room, having tried on the last selection, she asked for her husband's opinion. By this time he had learned just the right things to say. "It's perfect!" he exclaimed. "It makes your waist look smaller, your legs look longer, and slenderizes your hips." Just then another lady in the dressing room spoke out. "If there is a dress here that will do all that, I'll buy a dozen!"
Thanks to Rabbi Dave for this timely information for his fans: On the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, there is a ceremony called Tashlich. Jews traditionally go to the ocean or a stream or river to pray and throw bread crumbs into the water. Symbolically, the fish devour their sins. Occasionally, people ask what kind of bread crumbs should be thrown. Here are suggestions for breads which may be most appropriate for specific sins and misbehaviors: For ordinary sins White Bread For erotic sins French Bread For particularly dark sins Pumpernickel For complex sins Multi-Grain For twisted sins Pretzels For tasteless sins Rice Cakes For sins of indecision Waffles For sins committed in haste Matzoh For sins of chutzpah Fresh Bread For substance abuse Stoned Wheat For use of heavy drugs Poppy Seed bread For petty larceny Stollen For committing auto theft Caraway bread For timidity/cowardice Milk Toast For ill-temperedness Sourdough For silliness, eccentricity Nut Bread For not giving full value Shortbread For jingoism, chauvinism Yankee Doodles For excessive irony Rye Bread For unnecessary chances Hero Bread For telling bad jokes/puns Corn Bread For war-mongering Kaiser Rolls For dressing immodestly Tarts For causing injury to others Tortes For lechery and promiscuity Hot Buns For promiscuity with gentiles Hot Cross Buns For racist attitudes Crackers For sophisticated racism Ritz Crackers For being holier than thou Bagels For abrasiveness Grits For dropping in without notice Popovers For over-eating Stuffing For impetuosity Quick Bread For indecent photography Cheesecake For raising your voice too often Challah For pride and egotism Puff Pastry For being overly smothering Angel Food Cake For laziness Any long loaf For trashing the environment Dumplings For those who require a wide selection of crumbs, we suggest a Tashlich Mix available in three grades (Taslich Lite, Medium, and Industrial Strength) at your favorite Jewish bookstore. ------------------- That explains the pallets with 50 pound bags of assorted breadcrumbs that I saw stacked in front of a Deli downtown!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Jadian Faye-Marie Hatfield, 23, Pensacola, FL Jailed After Beating Ex With His Own Prosthetic Leg Jadian Hatfield Facebook Jadian Faye-Marie Hatfield, a 23-year-old Pensacola previously convicted felon, was jailed after she allegedly beat a man with his own prosthetic leg, then pointed a shotgun at him. According to the Okalooska County Sheriff's Office, Hatfield and the victim, 25-year-old Brandon Fleming, have a 2-year-old son together and have been sharing custody since they broke up in February. On August 27th, she send Fleming a text stating that she was "tired of him" and she was going to put him "six feet under." Hatfield came to Fleming's residence around 11:00 p.m, claiming that she was there to get her son. When the victim refused to hand the child over, Hatfield grabbed the boy out the bedroom window and put him in the back seat of a vehicle. Investigators say Fleming attempted to retrieve the child but was confronted by two men with clubs, who had also traveled to the residence with Hatfield. During the struggle, Hatfield snuck up behind the victim, pulled off his prosthetic leg and began to beat him with it. She then pulled a 12-gauge shotgun out of the vehicle and threatened to kill him if he didn't let her leave with the child. Hatfield and the two men left with the child while Fleming called police. Hatfield was booked into jail and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, domestic violence battery, interfering with the custody of a minor, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Tech Support Pits: From: Mark Re: Uncomplicating Explorer Dear Webby It irks me every time when I open the Windows file Explorer that it starts focused on Desktop, My documents instead of c:\ Is there a way to fix that ? Mark Dear Mark I agree that it's a thilly nuisance to have to tippy-toe all the way up to the root first before you can start doing what you plan to do. Fortunately it's easy to fix the thilly rigmarole. Use the same trick, that I described yesterday. Open an Explorer, click on the little folder to the right of the empty bra. That will open the address bar. Type in C:\ and hit ENTER. That will get you to the root directory. Now drag that little folder onto the desktop, right-click it and select properties, change the icon for it to something recognizable. There are lots of icons in C:\Windows\System or System32 or System64. Look for a file called moreicons.dll There are lots of icons in there. Then from then on you just click on that icon and an Explorer opens focused on C:\ You can do the same for the other drives and for any folder, that you frequently go to. Have FUN! DearWebby

"When I was a kid, my mom could send me to the store, and I'd get a salami, two pints of milk, 6 oranges, 2 loaves o' bread, a magazine, and some new blue jeans... all for a dollar!!"

An enthusiastic door-to-door vacuum salesman goes to the first house in his new territory. He knocks, a real mean and tough looking lady opens the door, and before she has a chance to say anything, he runs inside and dumps cow patties all over the carpet. He says, "Lady, if this vacuum cleaner don't do wonders cleaning this up, I'll eat every chunk of it." She turns to him with a smirk and says, "Do you want ketchup on that?" The salesman says, "Why do you ask?" She says, "We just moved in and we haven't got the electricity turned on yet."

A drunk stumbles along a baptismal service on Sunday afternoon down by the river, but has to get past the preacher to get to the buffet table. The minister turns and notices the old drunk and says, "Mister, Are you ready to find Jesus?" The drunk looks back and says, "Yesch, Preacher, I schure am." The minister then dunks the fellow under the water and pulls him right back up. "Have you found Jesus?" the preacher asked. "Nooo, I didn't!" said the drunk. The preacher then dunks him under for quite a bit longer, brings him up and says, "Now, brother, have you found Jesus?" "Noooo, I did not Reverend." The preacher in disgust holds the man under for at least 30 seconds this time, brings him out of the water and says in a harsh tone, "My God, man, have you found Jesus yet?" The old drunk wipes his eyes and says to the preacher... "Are you schure thisch isch where he fell in?"

How to make a desktop shortcut to a folder 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, September 12

Thank you very much, Georgina!
Thank you Ivan! 

There has been a lot of specultion in the media about this
weekend's cyber terrorism. As usual, most of the media
pundits were totally clueless and just jumping to confusions.

No, it most definitely was not the White House back office, 
creating an excuse for another executive order bypassing
both houses, to clamp down on the Internet. Those people's
expertise does not extend beyond FaceBook's Farmville.
While you do have to expect certain shenanigans from there,
they won't be that sophisticated.

The attack actually came from the entitlement crowd, that 
believes God gave them the right to steal music and movies and
and sell it for profit.

Parsons, the owner of GoDaddy, started off as a minister, 
selling "Money Counts" accounting software in the 80's.
I quite liked it, but unfortunately, it could not cope with the GST
tax, and I had to drop it in 92. But he had made his Millions 
by then.

However, behind all the glamor and glitz of GoDaddy, there is 
still the minister, and he frowns upon the music and movie theft
industry, and supports SOPA, the law that tries to crimp 
wholesale piracy.

To the entitlement crowd that looks like he is messing with 
their god-given right and entitlement to steal and profit from 
selling stolen stuff. THAT is why they attacked GoDaddy
and GoDaddy resellers.

What is the result?
We tightened security to the point, where it is becoming a 
nuisance for clients. Others will either follow, or fall prey to 
attacks. Just like 9/11 changed the world, and not for a 
better place, this weekends cyber terrorism has in some
ways done the same for the Internet.

In the short term it will widen the gap between users and
providers, who have to become better educated and skilled.
In the long term, that will make things more expenive for 
the users.

Have FUN!

The start of the new school term always brings out the most interesting questions for computer consultants on campus. The predominant questions this term pertain to "getting into" E-mail and how to access the "Information Highway." An obviously distraught student came into the consulting office yesterday complaining that his E-mail wasn't working; his attempts to get tickets for an on-campus concert kept resulting in returned mail. He showed me the mail address he was attempting to reach. I asked him where he obtained such an unusual mail address. He replied, "The sign told me, 'begins@7:30 P.M.'"

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 a lot of money. How about $500?" "Congratulations, you pass." said the Rabbi.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Laurie Kelly, 43, in Mesa, AZ Teachers Aide - Jailed After Leaving 6-Year-Old Daughter At Park To Have Sex With Two Men Laurie Kelly, a 43-year-old teacher's aide at Whitman Elementary School and park hooker was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly left her 6-year-old daughter with two strangers for hours so she could have sex with two men. According to police, Kelly approached two strangers at Evergreen Park and offered to buy them beer if they would watch her 6-year-old daughter for a few hours. Kelly allegedly told the strangers that she was "off to make some money." Police later learned that Kelly left the child at the park to have sex with at least two men in exchange for money. Investigators say officers arrived on the scene to find Kelly sitting in a grassy area with a man. When questioned, Kelly admitted to leaving the child with strangers so that she could have sex with two men. She stated that she needed to "make some money" but knew she was putting her daughter in danger. Kelly went on to say that she had "a manic sexual rage inside her" which she couldn't control. Witnesses told police that several different people watched the child for more than four hours and that the little girl didn't have water - it was especially hot that day. Kelly was booked into jail and charged with suspicion of child abuse. She has also been placed on paid leave by the school while the investigation continues.
Tech Support Pits: From: Gerald Re: Shortcut to music folder Dear Webby, Is there a way to create a short cut and thus a desk top icon to a music file folder that does not give that option when I right click on it? Getting to my music files is a small nuisance going through explorer & nerding around till I find that folder. I have the klutzy Blonde Windows, that is about as welcome as the sad-ass earth color shirts at clothing stores or the faggy dough-boy designs at the car lots. Thank you!! Gerald Dear Gerald Open a File Explorer At the left top you see something that looks like an empty bra. That is where the Forward and Backward arrows appear, if you. as you put it so nicely, "nerd around" for a while. To the right of the empty bra you see a folder icon. Click on that, and an XP style address bar opens. You can type your destination in there, or simply C:\ and proceed from there, instead of having to waddle up to the root first. Once you have your music folder open, drag that little folder icon at the top onto an empty spot on the desktop. Don't drag the folder from inside the Explorer window. That gets unpredictable and you might wind up with the actual folder on the desktop. So just drag that icon from the top to the desktop. Next right-click it and go into properties. There you can assign a nice, colorful icon to it. Have FUN! DearWebby

Becky had to grab a cab to get to a meeting uptown. She hailed one down, got in and told the cabbie the address to go to. The cabbie turned out to be a lunatic driver and Becky sat in the backseat clutching the door handle wondering if she could expect to survive this trip. The cabdriver sped through the crowded NYC streets, weaving in and out of traffic. Becky watched as one pedestrian after another leapt aside to avoid being run down by her lunatic driver. Becky looked ahead and saw a truck double parked on the narrow street. Not only did the driver fail to slow down, he actually accelerated as he approached the truck. He slipped his cab through the available space with an inch or two to spare on either side. "Driver," Becky screamed, "Are you crazy?? Are you trying to get us both killed?" "Relax lady," he said. "Just do what I do. Close your eyes."

A man owned a small farm in Iowa. The Iowa Wage and Hour Department claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to interview him. "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them," demanded the agent. "Well, there are my hired hands. One has been with me for four years, the other for three. I pay them each $600 a week, plus free room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $500 a month plus free room and board. Then there's the half-wit that works here about 18 hours a day. He takes home $10 a week and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every week to keep him going," replied the farmer. "That's the guy I want to talk to, the half-wit," said the agent. The farmer said, "That would be me."

Good Morning,  !
Today is Tuesday, September 11, 9/11
What were you doing 11 years ago, when you got THE NEWS? 

I prefaced this newsletter for about half a year after that 
with a count of how many days since the world changed.
And it sure did change, and not just for travelers!

Bush's concept of bringing the puck in front of THEIR net
and keeping the enemy busy in THEIR yard, put a stop to
any further attacks, especially after trashing all their 
caves. One has to wonder what will happen when the enemy
realizes that the soldiers, who are now ordered to show
"Courageous Restraint" are strategically handicapped now.

Personally, I would feel safer, if the soldiers were yelling:
"Remember the Alamo! Remember 9-11 !" and made the enemy 
cower in fear and give up any notion of fighting civilization.

How do YOU feel about it?

Have FUN!

The attack on the servers, that I mentioned yesterday, was very well prepared long in advance and very well coordinated. I realized, that something nefarious was going on when Gloria on Pender Island, BC, told me about her email not working. A check showed a weird load on that server. Luckily my Ukrainian partners Natalie and Victor were able to jump on it immediately, shut down some services and battled the attack. Unlike GoDaddy, we kept all of our machines up and running, even though some of them at reduced service for a while. This attack proved the concept, that Linux machines are safer from trojans and attacks than Windows machine, is a myth. However, they are easier to defend and to repair. We did the equivalent of dumping and re-installing Windows, but without shutting down. Contrary to what the herd of clueless media pundits claim, it was not a distributed Denial Of Service attack, but a well prepared inside-out attack. Key parts of the Linux OS on a huge number of servers had been modified with "EggDrop" style trojans well in advance and activated on the weekend. What made it more difficult was that there were more than one "EggDrop", and successfully getting rid of one just activated an other one. We did succeed, though, and stayed up, and GoDaddy is up again too. Apparently we were targeted, because we are a GoDaddy Reseller, selling domain registrations for less than GoDaddy themselves.

Thanks to Dianne for this story: Everybody's a comedian. I called my local home improvement store for a simple piece of advice. "I know the sheetrock is screwed to the studs," I said to the guy who answered the phone, "but how do I find the studs?" "Put an ad on our bulletin board." he suggested.
This was a story told to us by our chemistry master at school. A student wished to make some potassium hydroxide solution and decided to throw a large lump of potassium into a bucket of water. Out of the corner of his eye, the professor observed what the student was about to do and hurried over. After confirming this was what was intended, he asked the student to first to stir the water in the bucket for five minutes before adding the potassium. Puzzled, the student followed after him to ask the purpose of this action. "It will give me time to run away," said the professor.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Kymberely Frederick, 30, and Daniel Richards, 34 in Casselberry, FL Couple Spends Honeymoon In Jail After Leaving Baby And Two Toddlers Alone At Home During Wedding Kymberely Frederick, 30, and Daniel Richards, 34, spent their honeymoon in jail Tuesday after they allegedly left three young children alone at home while they went to the courthouse to get married. According to police, an investigation was launched Tuesday afternoon when a neighbor called 911 to report that three children (ages 1, 2, and 3) had been left alone without adult supervision. Investigators say officers arrived at the couple's residence to find three children had been left alone. Two children were found in cribs, while a third child was found in her bed. Frederick and Richards told police that they left home at around 2:30 p.m., borrowed a neighbor's car and went to the Seminole County Courthouse to get married. They reportedly called a neighbor while en route to the courthouse and asked her to watch the kids while they were gone. That neighbor, instead of watching the kids, immediately called police instead. Frederick and Richards were booked into the Seminole County Jail and charged with felony child neglect. Richards remains in jail, however, Frederick was released after posting bond.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make a Garden Holder for Your Cell Phone Stay in touch while gardening by making a holster for a cordless phone out of an old shoe.

Billy Joe came visitin' up north, and decided he wanted to do something he could never do in the south... SNOW SKIING. Unfortunately, before he ever made it UP the hill so he could try and come DOWN the hill, he was knocked unconscious by the chairlift. He called his insurance company from the hospital, but they said they were refusing to cover the injury. "WHAT?!" yelled Billy Joe into the phone. "And why wouldn't you cover an injury like this?" "You got hit in the head by a chairlift," the insurance rep said. "That proves you are an idiot... and we consider that to be a pre-existing condition."
Bob walked into our insurance office to purchase coverage for his new motorcycle. Only one question confused him. "Do you have a lien holder on the vehicle?" "I've got a kickstand," Bob replied. "Is that the same thing?"

Good Morning,  !
Today is Monday, September 10

Two of our servers are under attack, and we shut down most
services to protect the data, and make it easier to fight off 
the attack. Once everything is back to normal, the pictures
will show up again. Oh, and the newsletters will be delayed
until then as well.

Sunday afternoon Dianne, the lady, who sends me the Bonus 
Links, skyped me and told me to go for my walk early, because 
a wicked storm was forecast.

Yeah, yeah, I know.
When I did leave, the cute neighbor lady was tying stuff down 
in her garden and told me that I was going to get soaked 
before I got back.

I hiked to the store below the post office and bought some
potatoes, nothing else, and headed back.
Half way back the sky turned black, and the wind picked up.
Nice tail wind pushing me along! This was fun!
I grinned when I saw branches, leaves and what looked like 
tumbleweeds racing up the street and passing cars.

Then, with a lot of hooting and hollering and screeching a
bunch of teens on bicycles raced up the hill, sitting tall,
hands-free, holding their jackets open and flying up the
hill three times faster than they had ever pedalled down it.
Dang! I should have used my bicycle!

Well, I got home in record time and was within sight of
my house when the first big drops hit. Horizontally.
The last block was against the wind, so I cinched down the 
chinstrap on my hat, leaned into the wind and cranked up
my speed. 

The drops were sparse enough and the wind strong enough,
that they dried as fast as they hit. My shirt was a little bit damp
on the shoulders, but by no means wet, when I got into the 
shelter of the house and stopped to watch the storm.

Dianne later skyped me that the top speed of that storm 
was measured at 110 km/h. (about 70 mph)
It sure cleaned the leaves left by the hail storm a couple 
of weeks ago and blew them down to the prairies.
Nobody around here had raked them up. We knew that
sooner or later some wind would get them.

Have FUN!

Here's hoping there is no one like this at your workplace. Faced with hard times, the company offered a bonus of one thousand dollars to any employee who could come up with a way of saving money. The bonus went to a young woman in accounting who suggested limiting future bonuses to ten dollars.
Watching her mother as she tried on her new fur coat, the young daughter said unhappily, "Mom, do you realize how much some poor dumb beast suffered so you could have that?" The woman shot her an angry look, "How dare you talk about your father like that!"

>From Sandie After booking my 90-year-old mother on a flight from Florida to Nevada, I called the airline to go over her needs. The representative listened patiently as I requested a wheelchair and an attendant for my mother because of her arthritis and impaired vision. My apprehension lightened a bit when the woman assured me that everything would be taken care of. I thanked her profusely. "Oh, you're welcome," she replied. I was about to hang up when she cheerfully asked, "And will your mother need a rental car?"
Long ago, there lived an officer of the Royal Navy named Captain Bravado. He showed no fear when facing his enemies. One day, while sailing the Seven Seas, his lookout spotted a pirate ship approaching, and the crew became frantic. Captain Bravado bellowed, "Bring me my red shirt!" The first mate quickly retrieved the captain's red shirt, and while wearing the brightly colored frock, the Captain led his crew into battle and defeated the pirates. That evening, all the men sat around on the deck recounting the day's triumph. One of them asked the Captain, "Sir, why did you call for your red shirt before battle?" The captain replied, "If I were to be wounded in the attack, the shirt would not show my blood. Thus, you men would continue to fight, unafraid." All of the men sat and marveled at the courage of such a man. As dawn came the next morning, the lookout spotted not one, not two, but TEN pirate ships approaching. The crew stared in worshipful silence at the captain and waited for his usual orders. Captain Bravado gazed with steely eyes upon the vast armada arrayed against his ship, and without fear, turned and calmly shouted, "Get me my brown pants!"

A taxpayer received a strongly worded "second notice" that his taxes were overdue. Hastening to the collector's office, he paid his bill, saying apologetically that he had overlooked the first notice. "Oh," confided the collector with a smile, "we don't send out first notices. We have found that the second notices are more effective."
