Life  

1. As I let go of my feelings of guilt, I am in touch with my inner sociopath.

2. I have the power to channel my imagination into ever-soaring levels of suspicion and paranoia.

3. I assume full responsibility for my actions, except the ones that are someone else's fault.

4. In some cultures, what I do would be considered normal.

5. My intuition nearly makes up for my lack of wisdom and judgment.

6. I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper, and complain.

7. When someone hurts me, I know that forgiveness is cheaper than a lawsuit, but not nearly as rewarding.

8. I am at one with my duality.

9. Blessed are the flexible, for they can tie themselves in knots.

10. I will strive to live each day as if it were my 50th birthday.

11. I honor and express all facets of my being, regardless of state and local laws.

12. Today I will gladly share my experience and advice, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so!"

13. A scapegoat is almost as good as a solution.

14. Just for today, I will not sit in my living room all day in my underwear.
Instead, I will move my computer into the bedroom.

15. I will no longer waste my time reliving the past; I will spend it worrying about the future?

16. The complete lack of evidence is the surest proof that the conspiracy is working.

17. Before I criticize a man, I walk a mile in his shoes.
That way, if he gets angry, he's a mile away and barefoot.

Snow storm outside right now. Snow is piling up on the window
sill and against the southern side  window frame, so the wind
must be from the North. The weather forecast is for snow all week.
The cyclic warming ripple is definitely over, and we are back
to 70's style weather. The climate hoaxers will have to re-edit
their "scientific confusions", ahem, conclusions, all over again.

Tom had this problem of getting up late in the morning and was always late for work. His boss was mad at him and threatened to fire him if he didn't do something about it. So Tom went to his doctor who gave him a pill and told him to take it before he went to bed. Tom slept well and in fact beat the alarm in the morning. He had a leisurely breakfast and cheerfully drove to work on the scenic route. "Boss," he said, "The pill actually worked!" "That's nice" said the boss. "But where were you yesterday?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Superintendent E. Parraz and school officials at Denair Middle School, Denair, California Thunder for the flag 13 year old Cody Alicea had been forbidden by school officials to stop flying flying the Stars and Stripes on his bicycle, just in time for Veterans Day. Well, Cody did not take that lying down. He told the big guys, the ones with the BIG bikes. Hundreds of them showed up with big thundering Harleys and various outer bikes and trikes, followed by hundreds of cars, all flying the flag and/or displaying it on their black leather jackets. There was THUNDER in the air! E. Parraz said: "Our Hispanic, you know, kids will, you know, bring their Mexican flags and they'll display it, and then it does cause kind of a racial tension which we don't really want." When the bikers showed up, he backed down. There was not much about it in the leftist media in the US, but you can read about it in the Canadian Free Press.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Honey Re: What is an external sound card? Hi Webby, Since I don't know much about the workings of a computer I have learned to trust your advice.

When i went to the site it said I had thousands of items to be removed. But to do it I had to register. Should I trust the site and register.? And If I do register do you then think they will say there is a charge.? I like the word free because times are tough.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Add Pumpkin to Turkey Soup If you are planning on making soup with leftover turkey this Thanksgiving, here's a tip for adding a little extra nutrition for your family. Put 1 cup of plain pumpkin into the soup pot. No one will ever know it's in there. It adds a rich color while supplying immune-boosting nutrients. It also somewhat thickens the broth. I use canned pumpkin, not the pie filling. Source: A friend told me about this.

BEIJING (AFP) – China overtook the United States at the head of the 
world of supercomputing on Sunday when a survey ranked one of 
its machines the fastest on the planet.

Tianhe-1, meaning Milky Way, achieved a computing speed of 
2,570 trillion calculations per second, earning it the number one 
spot in the Top 500 (www.top500.org) survey of supercomputers.

The Jaguar computer at a US government facility in Tennessee, 
which had held the top spot, was ranked second with a speed of 
1,750 trillion calculations per second.

Interesting, but not surprising, considering that rules and 
regulatons make building computer chips in the US impossible.

The Sunday school lesson for the day was about Noah's Ark, so the new teacher decided to get her small pupils involved by playing a game in which they identified animals. "I'm going to describe something to you. Let's see if you can guess what it is. First: I'm furry with a bushy tail and I like to climb trees." The children looked at her blankly. "I also like to eat nuts, especially acorns." No response. This wasn't going well at all! Finally a kid volunteered: "Well, I know the answer has to be Jesus -- but it sure sounds like a squirrel to me!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jack and Leslie Johnson, Prince Georges County, MD Prince George's Co. Executive Jack Johnson, Wife Arrested ANNAPOLIS, Md - Prince George's County's top official and his wife were accused Friday of tampering with evidence after agents tapping his cell phone heard him tell her to flush a $100,000 check from a developer down the toilet and hide nearly $80,000 cash in her underwear as FBI agents were at their door, according to an affidavit. County Executive Jack Johnson, whose second term expires next month, and his wife, Leslie, who was recently elected to the County Council, were charged with witness and evidence tampering and destruction, alteration and falsification of records in a federal investigation. Jack Johnson said Friday night he was innocent of the charges. The investigation related to allegations that some real estate developers in the county were bribing public officials in exchange for official acts favorable to certain developers and their companies. The Johnsons could be heard on the phone by FBI agents discussing how to get rid of evidence, after agents came knocking at their Mitchellville home on Friday, according to an affidavit from investigators. "Tear it up! That is the only thing you have to do," Johnson told his wife, according to the affidavit. Leslie Johnson then could be heard asking her husband, "Do you want me to put it down the toilet?" The county executive responded, "Yes, flush that," according to the affidavit, which noted that monitoring agents heard a flushing sound in the background. Johnson then told his wife to put cash in her underwear, according to the affidavit. After FBI agents entered the home, they searched Leslie Johnson and recovered $79,600 from her underwear. The Johnsons were arrested at home and released later on personal recognizance. Jack Johnson was placed on home detention with electronic monitoring. They both face a maximum of 20 years in prison. U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein said authorities have tapped Jack Johnson's phone since January 2010. This has been a lengthy investigation involving the FBI and the IRS, he said, and prosecutors expect more charges to be filed and more people to be charged. Jack Johnson, 61, has been county executive since 2002; his term ends in three weeks. The Democrat was the county state's attorney for eight years before that. Born in Charleston, South Carolina, Johnson attended Benedict College and got his law degree from Howard University, where his wife was also a law student.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Beetle Re: What is an external sound card? Dear Webby, I don't know what an external sound Card is and after reading the tech support.. ..I still don't know what is an external sound card. External speakers..yes. Take Care Beetle --------------------- Dear Beetle When your internal sound card on a computer, where it is built into the motherboard, is shot, you can replace the motherboard, or you can plug an external sound card into a USB port. You can also do that, if the built in sound card is just barely good enough for warning beeps and such stuff at the office, but not good enough for real music at home. Then you plug an external sound card into a USB port when you get home. You can plug a head-set, headphones, speakers, or your big ol living room stereo into the external sound card, and leave them all plugged into that, just unplug the USB cable from the laptop, when you take it to the office, or in your case, probably the "office".

A couple had a fatal car accident on their way to get married. The couple found themselves sitting outside Heaven's Gate waiting on St. Peter to do an intake. While waiting, they wondered if they could possibly get married in Heaven. Saint Peter showed up and they asked him. Peter said, "I don't know, this is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out." and he left. The couple sat and waited for an answer ... for two months ... and they began to wonder if they really should get married in Heaven, what with the eternal aspect of it all. "What if it doesn't work?" they wondered, "Are we stuck together forever?" Peter returned after yet another month, looking somewhat bedraggled. "Yes," he informed the couple, "you can get married in Heaven." "Great," said the couple, "but what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?" St. Peter, red-faced, slammed his clipboard onto the ground. "What's wrong?" asked the frightened couple. "GET REAL !" St Peter shouted, "it took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it will take me to find two lawyers and a judge?"

The astronomer said that after reading widely in the field of religion, he had concluded that all religion could be summed up in a single phrase. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," he said, with a bit of smugness, knowing that his field is so much more complex. After a brief pause, the theologian replied that after reading widely in the area of astronomy he had concluded that all of it could be summed up in a single phrase also. "Oh, and what is that?" the astronaut inquired. "Twinkle, twinkle, little star; how I wonder what you are!"

Dutch police congratulated for stealing people's cars Dutch police chiefs have congratulated officers for stealing cars, which drivers had left running while they went to the shops. The two officers in Tilburg drove off on three separate occasions in cars left with the keys still in the ignition. They drove the cars for several hundred metres while their owners gave chase on foot. They gave the cars back. A police spokesman said: "They wanted to prove how fast a real thief can get away with a car." The police chief told Limburgs Dagblad: "They scared the hell out of the drivers. They'll certainly be more careful next time."

I went to the store the other day, I was only in there for about 5 minutes and when I came out there was a motorcycle cop writing a parking ticket. So I went up to him and said, 'Come on buddy, how about giving a guy a break?' He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. So I called him a pencil necked nazi. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having bald tires!! So I called him a horse@#$%. He finished the second ticket and put it on the car with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket!! This went on for about 20 minutes, the more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote. I didn't give a hoot. That car now was my ex wife's car. I had walked to the store.
Bob prepared a pasta dish for a dinner party he was giving. In his haste, however, he forgot to refrigerate the spaghetti sauce, and it sat on the counter all day. He was worried about spoilage, but it was too late to cook up another batch. He called the local Poison Control Center and voiced his concern. They advised Bob to boil the sauce again. That night, the phone rang during dinner, and a guest volunteered to answer it. "Hey, Bob! It's the Poison Control Center. They want to know how the spaghetti sauce turned out."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Richard Williams, 43, Tomoka, Florida Lawn Mower escape DEBARY -- An inmate, who was mowing grass as part of work detail, is accused of trying to escape on a lawn mower. Tomoka Correctional Institution officials said Richard Williams, 43, sped off on the mower when his supervisor's back was turned. The officer quickly called the Volusia County Sheriff's Office. A deputy spotted Williams about 10 minutes later. He was still riding the mower. Williams was taken into custody and charged with escape.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sandie Re: Kudos to Jerome Dear Webby, As you know, I recently had an issue with my laptop and could not get my sound repaired without a huge repair bill from a local computer repair palace. They never even suggested that I do what Jerome advised me to. They said it would be 200$ to repair my sound and it was part of the mother board. Well, this laptop is 5 years old and not worth that! You suggested I contact Jerome at spiritscents.com and I did. What Jerome said was to get a external USB sound card. I was also having a card reader issue as well, so he told me what to purchase, an external card reader. I ordered that and a small 7 port USB hub to add more things if I needed to plug any other items in since old laptops have very few ports. He also suggested to get a small portable speaker system. He even told me where to go and purchase what I needed, highly unusual for a computer fixer to do also. If he had suggested it, I would have gladly bought the stuff from him! Here is a picture of the 8" x 5" speakers: The whole thing only cost me about 27$ alltogether. A very inexpensive correction to a $200 sound problem, plus now I have five free USB ports and good sounding speakers! I offered to send some money to Jerome for all his help but he declined and said he could not accept payment for helping me. I would highly recommend sending any computer tower or laptop to Jerome for repair. It is so very refreshing to find a 100% honest computer person. I know I will personally stick with him and recommend him any people I know. Mean while, for a couple days I tried to locate the on/off and volume control for those speakers. I was not doing very well not being a techie, so today after your suggestions, Dear Webby, I started looking for a possible location for these non visible items I needed to make my speakers work. "On a similar system I once read: 'have to wack ting in middle and up it pop. It have knob on it to turn it on'." After I stopped laughing I just started pushing and pulling on all the parts. Then the top middle one opened and there the on/off switch was and volume controls. You would think they would come with English instructions! Many thanks to you Dear Webby and especially to Jerome, now I can listen to everything again. Sandie ________________ Dear Sandie Glad everything works! Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Binder Clips to Secure Garbage Bags Are the bags in your garbage cans slipping? I was getting frustrated with garbage bags slipping down on the inside of my tall kitchen garbage can every time I tried to put more garbage in. I sometimes would get the bags that grip the rim but they still slipped and were more costly. One day, I took binder clips (the black or colored clips with silver bars that you get in office supply stores) and used two clips, one on each side on the garbage can rim, clipping the bag to the can. I flipped the bars down. They easily went on and I was able to close the lid. It has worked like a charm. I can now use any type of bag that is on sale.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Donald Mosley Jr., 40 of lewiston, Idaho Robber found next door at the "Alibi" bar LEWISTON, Idaho -- Police said it didn't take them long to locate an Idaho man suspected in the robbery of a Cedars Inn -- he was next door at The Alibi bar. Lewiston police said 40-year-old Donald Mosley Jr. was arrested less than 15 minutes after he walked into the hotel and demanded cash from the desk clerk late Wednesday. Police found Mosley at The Alibi, a bar located next to the hotel. Mosley was booked into the Nez Perce County Jail early Thursday and faces possible felony robbery charges. The Lewiston Tribune reports this is the second time Mosley has been arrested in recent weeks. In late October, police say he called in a fake fire report from a pay phone after he was declined a cup of coffee at a Lewiston fire station.

So much so, that when I was gone for a month it was the only newsletter I kept. With only intermittent and expensive satellite internet, I canceled all but yours! RE today's tech tip. Geesh, we've been unplugging our pc's before vacuuming. Thanks for the update and explanation. Does this also apply to laptops? Any other recommendations or tips for cleaning a laptop? Also, today's Tech Tip is all on one long line and requires scrolling the window from left to right. Thanks for the daily smiles - I look forward to your newsletter! Nofries Dear Nofries Yes, laptops too. Even though they are not fully grounded, they do bleed off static to ground, when plugged in, so that it does not build up. And laptops most definitely need to be vacuumed out! That powerful little fan that it has inside, sucks a lot of dust and lint into it, and it eventually fills up to the point, where the processor has to run at low speed, so as not to overheat. At those heat levels it doesn't take much to damage RAM or certain components, plus the low speed can be a real nuisance. Long lines in your case indicate a browser or RAM problem.

A young vampire bat came flapping in from the night, covered in fresh blood, and perched himself on the roof of the cave to get some sleep. Before long, all the other bats smelled the blood and began hassling him about where he got it. He was tired and needing a rest, so he told them to please leave him alone. However, it was clear that he wasn't going to get any sleep until he satisfied their curiosity. "OK!" he said with exasperation, "follow me," and he flew out of the cave with hundreds of bats following close behind him. Down through the valley they went, across the river and into the deep forest. Finally he slowed down and all the other bats excitedly gathered around him. "Do you see that tree over there?" he asked. "Yes, yes, yes!" the bats all screamed in a frenzy. "Good," said the first bat, "Because I DIDN'T!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Carolee Bildsten, 56 Drunk assaults cop with dildo Carolee Bildsten, 56, is facing an aggravated assault rap after allegedly attempting to strike a cop with a sex toy. As part of an investigation into a claim that Bildsten had skipped out on a restaurant bill last night, an officer from the Gurnee Police Department accompanied the suspect to her apartment, where she promised to retrieve money to pay the tab, according to a police press release. However, when Bildsten reached inside a dresser drawer to get the purported cash, she instead removed a “clear, rigid feminine pleasure device,” held it above her head, and advanced on the cop “in a threatening manner.” The officer responded by knocking the sex toy out of the way before he was struck with the device. The sex toy, which was not confiscated by cops, was further described by Deputy Chief Kevin Woodside in a TSG interview. The item, he noted, was six inches long and “attached to a nylon harness.” In addition to the assault count, Bildsten was charged with public intoxication and theft of services for allegedly dining and dashing at Joe’s Crab Shack. Bildsten had been arrested for drunk driving in September. Bildsten, free on a personal recognizance bond, is scheduled for a December 6 court appearance.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sue Re: Is it safe to vacuum around computers? Dear Webby, Is it safe to vacuum around computers or will the static cause problems? Sue Dear Sue Yes, it is perfectly safe to vacuum around computers. They are grounded electrically, as long as you leave them plugged in, and nowadays all inputs are shielded. Do NOT unplug them before vacuuming around or inside them. You should, however, turn them off before you begin vacuuming. The reason for that is that you might accidentally unplug some cables, and that could cause the machine to crash. Depending on the environment they are in, desktop computers should be vacuumed out once per year, under-the-desk floor models should be opened and vacuumed out twice a year. Just open the computer and vacuum it out before the fuzzy dust blanket inside causes expensive parts to overheat and malfunction. All you have to remember is: Turn the computer OFF, but do NOT UNPLUG IT. If your computer is under your desk, put it onto some phone books, bricks, wood, anything, to raise it a bit above the floor, where the dust bunnies travel. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Recycling Water Around The Home Our two favorite ways to conserve/recycle water is using plants and pet dishes. Drop an ice cube? Instead of throwing it in the sink to melt, put it in a pet's water dish. You pet will love having cold water for a change. Roof leaking? Instead of putting buckets under the dripping area, put a plant there. Have a party where guests leave their drinks half finished? If any of the cups have water, dump the remains into the pet's water dish or potted plant. If you use well water and the electricity goes out for a long time from a winter storm, melt the snow to sanitize the water and then use for cooking or washing. If you think an upcoming storm will leave you in a lurch, put a few pots or buckets outside to gather the snow as it falls. It keeps the snow a little cleaner than if you had to scoop the snow off a patio table or the family car.

Remembrance Day in Australia
Veterans Week in Canada
Remembrance Day in UK
Veterans Day in the US
Armistice Day in France and Belgium


In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Robert Rupp, 18, of Big Coppitt Key, Florida Burglar left MySpace open SUGARLOAF KEY, Fla. (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said they arrested a teenage burglar, who allegedly left himself logged into MySpace at the scene of the crime. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office said a caretaker for a house on Sugarloaf Key called 911 Sunday evening and reported seeing someone sitting on a couch inside the house, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported. Deputies said they arrived to find the house unoccupied, but they discovered an open back window, empty food containers and marijuana left on a coffee table. The sheriff's office said deputies found a computer logged into the MySpace account of Robert Rupp, 18, of Big Coppitt Key. Rupp was spotted walking in the neighborhood and he allegedly told deputies he went inside the house because he was cold outside. Rupp was charged with burglary, possession of burglary tools and theft.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Merv Re: Social Networking Magic or Myth? Dear Webby Is this Social Networking some kind of magic that I don't get, or is it just a myth, that one could make money with it? I know the ones, who are spouting buzz words and selling courses are just persuasive con artists, but is there anything behind all the fanzy buzz words that the empty shirts spout? I have over thousand "friends" on facebook and over 5000 on twitter, but have not managed to sell anything via those routes. What's the real story? Merv Dear Merv All those "friends" pay exactly as little attention to you, as you pay to them. They are just numbers, not friends. Probably half of them are trying to sell the same stuff you are pushing. You have not made them any money, and it is very unlikely they will make you any. It is good to lurk and watch a bit now and then, mainly to spot trends, but don't waste working hours on it! When you do have something worthwhile to mention, use that opportunity to try and get a few subscribers to your newsletter. With those people you can get a lot closer, and you can earn their respect. That is a much better position to be in, than a totally ignored "friend" on FaceBook or Twitter. Have FUN! DearWebby

Outlook Express a CULT ?
I didn't quite see the reasoning behind my friend's statement.
"Yes", he explained, "it's like Mac's or Harleys. Nobody would 
buy one for performance or reliability or to save money. 
But if you say one bad word about them to a user or owner, 
then you better be ready for hostilities!"

That sure seems to be true when it comes to Harleys. You can
bitch about them all you want, when you are sitting on one,
or waiting for it to get fixed, but you better not say anything
at all, when you sit on a rice burner. 

Outlook Express users are the same. They know it is buggy, 
and that, sooner or later, it will lose all the mail again.
But they are as loyal to it as some of my friends are to their 
Harleys.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Edward Blatch, 23 in Springfield, MA Victim Settles Score, Catches Robber Weeks after being robbed at gunpoint, a Springfield delivery driver meets his attacker in a most unlikely place. In September, Bermudes took an order and went out to deliver. But when he got to the house on Federal Street, he says he was met by 23 year old Edward Blatch. Police say Blatch pulled out a rifle and allegedly took cash, a phone and Bermudes' high school ring. "They came downstairs and grabbed everything from me. Stole everything from me," he says. Ever since then, Bermudes was wishing he'd have the chance to meet Blatch again. "I got a good memory for the faces. So when I see him, I was not about to let it go," he says. On Monday, the victim and the alleged robber crossed paths at Bermudes' Worthington Street Chinese restaurant. "He come asking for napkins," Bermudes says. Blatch got more than napkins. Bermudes immediately knew the face that had haunted him for the last month and barricaded him inside the restaurant. Without his rifle and his buddies, he had no choice but wait for the cops to arrive. Blatch has been arrested for armed robbery.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Add Pumpkin Pie Spice to Coffee Grounds I love the Pumpkin Spice flavored coffee that is sold at this time of the year. But drinking too many of them can really put a hole in my pocket. So I made my own! When I brew coffee, I add a teaspoon (or more) of Pumpkin Pie Spice to the coffee grounds. It turns out pretty good. Not quite the same, but close enough. And there is a whole pot of brewed pumpkin spice coffee for nearly next to nothing. I already had the spice in my cabinet, and was going to brew coffee anyway. Your taste may require more spice than I did. Enjoy.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Dwayne Re: DSL over cell phone? Dear Webby, Is there a way to get DSL over a cell phone connection? If there is, how is that connected to a laptop? Dwayne Dear Dwayne Yes, there sure is. Most of the bigger phone companies have "Air Cards" or "Cell Cards" or the same thing under a similar name. They plug into a USB port, just like your mouse does. Same as regular land line DSL, you can get air cards at different speeds, depending on your budget. To use it, you run the set-up CD, plug the air-card into a USB socket, log on and sign in, and it works like a regular DSL. Sometimes, depending on the area you are in, you may need to select a channel, but it guides you through that. According to people who use them, it's simple and easy, not cheaper than land-line DSL.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Misty McCollister, 35, in Minden, Nevada MINDEN, Nev. - A Nevada woman has admitted letting her 12-year-old son drive her car because she was too drunk. The Gardnerville Record-Courier reports 35-year-old Misty McCollister awaits sentencing Dec. 14. She pleaded guilty Tuesday to attempted child abuse or neglect. McCollister was arrested Oct. 17 near her home after a witness reported seeing a car weaving in and out of its lane and varying its speed. The witness told sheriff's deputies he passed the vehicle and saw a child in the driver's seat. Another woman and a 7-year-old child also were in the car. McCollister told District Judge Dave Gamble that the other woman refused to drive because she didn't have her glasses, so she put her son on her lap so he could drive them home. She admitted to drinking all that weekend. Misty McCollister apparently blew .299 and required medical clearance prior to being put in jail.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Patti Re: TV over the net Hi Webby, Loving the email and the advice but I need to ask for help. I've been hearing a lot about programs that, for a one time fee, allow you to view TV from the computer. Can you recommend one? Dear Patti I don't watch TV very often. Last time I watched anything, was the final hockey game in the Winter Olympics. Some of those TV over the net deals are really cheap, but you get only weird channels, and some are more expensive, but you get better channels. One caution, though: If you have slow dial-up, and YouTube videos don't play properly, then live TV probably won't be much better. On DSL or cable Internet, live TV is smooth and sharp. The best compromise I could find is TVnoop. They got BBC News CNN SKY News Al Jazeera FOX News Sports Movies Music Channels from 120 countries Absolutely ZERO monthly costs – live TV free of any monthly charge or recurring monthly subscription. A lifetime license for free updates is included in this package. 2150 Channels - Select your favorites out of 2150 international satellite based channels from most of the countries including USA, UK and many others. No additional hardware required - This is software only, one that can be installed on any Internet enabled PC desktop or Laptop. There is no need to add additional hardware such as a TV tuner or DVR card. With THIS link you can get it for $49, $20 less than retail cost: TV over the net Since you are probably paying a lot more than that EVERY month, you can't lose, even if takes you a while to figure out which of the 2150 channels are going to be your favorites.

Cindy was at an interview with the company psychiatrist as part of a job interview. As she sat in the chair, the psychiatrist asked a series of questions to determine if she was emotionally suitable for the company. Things were not not going well for her. The psychiatrist decided to try a new approach, to give her one last chance. He asked, "if you could have a conversation with someone, living or dead, who would it be?" Cindy quickly responded, "the living one."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a 33 year old man in Okaloosa, Florida Driver tries to avoid arrest by jumping seats in moving vehicle OKALOOSA ISLAND — A man who tried to avoid arrest by vacating the driver’s seat while his car was still moving was arrested for driving without a valid license. The incident began around 3:40 p.m. when an Okaloosa County deputy initiated a traffic stop on the 1990 Cadillac sedan near the Coast Guard station on U.S. Highway 98, according to a sheriff’s report. Before the vehicle pulled over, the deputy observed the driver “jump over the back of the driver’s seat into the rear seat area as the car was still traveling. The front seat passenger slid over to the driver’s seat and stopped the car,” the report stated. A search of the original driver’s license revealed the 33-year-old’s license had been suspended after he didn’t pay traffic fines. During the course of the stop, the deputy also found four grams of marijuana inside a package of cigarettes. When questioned, the driver said he had left the driver’s seat to avoid arrest, but said the marijuana was his and that the passenger was unaware of its pres-ence, the report stated. The man was charged with driving with his license suspended and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana.

It's spammers, who are trying to collect the names and addresses of the most gullible people on the net. If they fall for that BS and forward it, then they are obviously very gullible, and chances are good, that the friends they are forwarding it to, are also not too smart. In general, when forwarding anything to more than just the closest friends, smart people put the extra addresses into the BCC field, not out in the open. Have FUN! DearWebby

The Good Old Days 

This will boggle your mind, I know it did mine!

__________________________________________

The year is 1910
One hundred years ago.
What a difference a century makes!
Here are some statistics for the Year 1910:

__________________________________________

The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.

Fuel for this car was sold in drug stores only.

Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.

Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.

The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower !

The average US wage in 1910 was 22 cents per hour.

The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year ..

A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year,
A dentist $2,500 per year,
a veterinarian between $1,500 and $4,000 per year,
and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.

More than 95 % of all births took place at HOME .

90% of all Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!

Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which
were condemned in the press AND the government as 'substandard.'

Sugar cost four cents a pound.

Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.

Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.

The Five leading causes of death were:

1. Pneumonia and influenza
2. Tuberculosis
3. Diarrhea
4. Heart disease
5. Stroke

The American flag had only 45 stars ....

The population of Las Vegas , Nevada , was only 30!!!!

Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn't been invented yet.

There was no Mother's Day or Father's Day.

Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write and

Only 6% of all Americans had graduated from high school..

Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores.

Back then pharmacists said, 'Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind,

Regulates the stomach and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health'

( Shocking? DUH! )

Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help ....

There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A. !

Try to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years.

IT STAGGERS THE MIND, DOESN'T IT?

Today the combines were active in the fields along the highway,
trailing plumes of dust. The last few days we had warm weather
and 12 - 14% humidity, just perfect for drying the grain. Here
the farmers don't use combines to cut the grain. They cut it with
big tractors and windrow it, to let it dry a few days. 

Then they drive along with the big combines picking up the 
windrows, threshing the grain, shredding the straw to return it
to the field, and pouring the grain into the oversize trucks.

The price they get for the grain depends not only on the
nutritive quality, but the moisture content, or lack of it. 
Windrowing is extra work, but they consider it worth it.

I always enjoy seeing a herd of combines working a field.

Have FUN!

After some thought, she said that she'd probably look for a house-sharing situation with three other single or widowed women who might be a little younger than herself, since she is so active for her age. Then Mom asked Dad, "What will you do if I die first?" He replied, "Probably the same thing."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Deon Williams, 19, in Brooklyn, NY birdbrained bandit took turkey stuffing to a whole new level A Brooklyn teen was caught on video shoving a 12-pound turkey breast into his baggy sweatpants -- and then waddling out of a Bed-Stuy grocery with an irate butcher hot on his trail, sources said yesterday. "He's got a big turkey in his pants!" Fine Fare Grocery cashier Michelle Benjamin yelled to butcher Sergio Marte, who chased down alleged poultry poacher Deon Williams, 19, outside the Marcus Garvey Boulevard store. "You have something in your pants!" Marte barked at Williams, who squealed back, "I'll give it to you -- don't touch me!" "I don't want to touch you -- just give me the turkey!" Marte demanded. Williams dumped it on the street, and when Marte bent over to pick it up, the teen clocked him in the jaw, the butcher said. "He swung at me, and then he ran," the 42-year-old butcher said, showing off a still-swollen cheek. The brazen heist was caught on surveillance video, and cops nabbed Williams on Wednesday. "We know this guy," store owner Julio Delossantos told The Post. "He had two friends with him. I believe they were learning from him. "Even though customers were there, he did it right in front of them." The cashier, Benjamin, said, "I saw him putting it in his clothes," adding that she saw his two apprentices paying close attention. "I asked [Williams], 'What are you teaching the both of them?' " She said she demanded the teen put the turkey back -- and he claimed he would, but instead, he just walked out the door. "We told the manager to look at the camera, but by the time he did, they were already walking out," Benjamin said. Williams was charged with robbery, petit larceny and criminal possession of the stolen poultry. He is due back in court Nov. 15. It's not the first time he used his pants to stash a five-finger discount, sources said. Williams was arrested on Aug. 5 after trying to smuggle seven cans of Red Bull out of a bodega on Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint, authorities said.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Wendy Re: Fake parcel pick-up warning Dear Webby, I keep getting these warning mails about UPS and postal parcel pick-up notices. Are they just a hoax or are they real? Wendy Dear Wendy There was a virus that sent those notices a year ago, and some people say it is going around again, but I have never seen those, only the warnings about them. Quite possibly my MailWasher dumps them without showing them to me. If you do get a parcel pick-up notice by email, just dump it. The post office sends you paper notices, if you have a parcel, FedEx leaves a paper door hanger if they have tried to deliver, while you were out, and UPS, especially across the border, is always bad news anyway. But even they leave a paper notice. UPS may be OK for local deliveries in some areas, but across the border, they are VERY bad news. They charge a brokerage fee, that is usually more than the item is worth. On cross-border orders I always specify: Order cancelled if shipped via UPS. Since 2004 I even have a page up , that spells that out, with invoices that show why. Why Not UPS Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Creative Sink Storage Ideas I have a tip for those of us that still like to do dishes by hand. I was tired of looking at the bottle of dish soap on my sink, so I decides to get a cute pickle dish with 3 sections at the dollar store and place my sink items I use every day in it. I also got a lemon squirt bottle for my dish soap. That way you don't waste as much and no big bottle at your sink. You can use ketchup/mustard any refillable smaller bottle. I know I could put it under my sink, but, with everyone using the sink, it's easier for us. I hope some one can use this idea!

A man was chosen for jury duty who very much wanted to be dismissed from serving. He tried every excuse he could think of but none of them worked. On the day of the trial he decided to give it one more shot. As the trial was about to begin he asked if he could approach the bench. "Your Honor," he said, " I must be excused from this trial because I am prejudiced against the defendant. I took one look at that man in the blue suit with those beady eyes and that dishonest face and I said 'He's a crook! He's guilty, guilty, guilty' So your Honor, I could not possibly stay on this jury!" With a tired annoyance the judge replied, "Get back in the jury box. That's the prosecutor."

Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

I read that financial institutions offer people different interest
rates on loans, depending on the browser they use. 
If they use IE, they get quoted the highest rate, FireFox is next, 
then Opera, Safari, and with Google Chrome they get the best deal.

Naturally, the Hotmail/IE8 crowd got into a snit, claiming that
just because they use IE8, that does not mean they are less
trustworthy.

It doesn't. They miss the point. Trustworthiness is determined
by how promptly you pay your phone bill, not by which browser
you use.

The choice of browser indicates how picky you are, 
and how much you shop around to get exactly what you want.
If you come waltzing in with W7 and IE8, the banks figure you
are easy to please and will sign even at a high interest rate.
At the other end, if you show up with XP and Google Chrome,
they know you will keep shopping around until you get the 
absolute lowest rate. So they make you an offer that you
can't refuse, or will come back to.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Matthew Nieveen, 19, in Halloweenie Dressed As Breathalyzer Busted For Drunk Driving In the most amusing moment from the Halloween police blotter, a Nebraska man dressed as a portable Breathalyzer machine was arrested for drunk driving. Matthew Nieveen, 19, was busted early Monday for DUI and being a minor in possession of alcohol. Nieveen was collared after a Lincoln cop pulled over his Ford F-150 after the teenager was spotted driving erratically. Nieveen’s blood alcohol level was more than twice the state’s .08 limit (though he wasn’t supposed to be drinking in the first place). A search of his truck turned up a bottle of vodka and beer. Last Halloween, an Ohio college student wearing a similar Breathalyzer costume was busted for drunk driving and underage drinking and he too got a Bonehead Award.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Food Packaging Boxes as Gift Wrapping Why buy packaging boxes for money? Instead of throwing away packaging boxes, such as cereal boxes, cake boxes or any box that is clean on the inside, I save them for use in gift wrapping any items that need boxes.

Anni was taking her time browsing through everything at a friend's yard sale, and said to her, "My husband is going to be very angry when he finds out I stopped at a yard sale." "I'm sure the old boy'll understand when you tell him about all the bargains," her friend replied. "Normally, yes," said Anni. "But he just broke his leg, and he's waiting for me to take him to the hospital to have it set."

I wonder how many Senators will see the writing on the wall and 
rather switch in the next two years, than endanger their warm 
place to crap? Usually the ones who got the most help from
the president are the first ones to turn their coats. 
The next election will be easy to predict, but first we have to
struggle through a couple more years of tough economy.
It's a good thing I didn't toss out still good pants, just because 
I outgrew them ten years ago. They are starting to fit again!

Have FUN!

A member of the Country Club asked the lifeguard how he might go about teaching a young lady to swim. "It takes considerable time and technique." replied the guard. "First you must take her into the water, then place one arm about her waist, hold her tightly, then take her right arm and raise it very slowly..." "This is certainly most helpful." said the member. "I know that my sister will appreciate it." "Your sister?" said the lifeguard. "In that case, just push her into the deep end of the pool. She'll learn in a hurry."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Charles Creech, 36 and David Hartsell, 52 in Lexington, KY Theft suspect nabbed after falling through ceiling LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - As police in Lexington sought a second man for theft of copper from a vacant house, Charles Creech came tumbling through a ceiling. The 36-year-old Creech had hidden in the basement ceiling after police responded to a neighbor's call about noise coming from the house. Police spokesman Lt. Chris Van Brackel told the Lexington Herald-Leader officers captured 52-year-old David Hartsell after a foot chase Monday afternoon and were checking the home when the drywall gave way and Creech fell to the floor. He was taken to a hospital, then charged with second-degree burglary and possession of burglary tools. Hartsell also faces burglary charges.

While searching for something in the Humor Letter Archive, I came across this gem: From Trisha: Dear Webby, I had run across the term cyber sex a few times lately, so I decided to try to figure out what it meant. I figured it had something to do with the computer, so I started trying to find the sex drive on mine. I looked everywhere, in all the folders on the My Computer section, the add/uninstall software, install hardware part of the control panel then I got out all the manuals and went through them. I finally came to the conclusion that my computer is not equipped with one. So I decided to go to the computer store and see if I could buy one. I wanted to look intelligent and scholarly, so I wore my math hat. Well, the salesperson in the first store was a rather stern looking woman. I gave her the make and model of my computer and asked her if she had any sex drives in stock. She kinda scowled at me and asked me if I was trying to get smart with her. Then she said, rather rudely I thought, that she couldn't help me and walked away. HUH, must not have had any in stock. In the second store, I gave the salesperson the make and model of my computer and asked if they had any sex drives in stock. He kind of snickered and asked if I meant a hard drive. I thought about it for a minute and told him yeah, maybe that, but I think I should already have one installed. He started laughing at me said something about me trying to kill him. "You're killing me!" Something like that and walked away. Hmmmm, must be out here too. Must be hard to keep in stock I wasn't trying to kill him I wasn't even hurting him. The guy in the third store laughed and asked me if I'd just fallen off the turnip truck. I assured him I'd never been on a turnip truck, but I'd fallen off the manure wagon a few times. He mumbled something about that explaining it and walked away laughing. The guy in the fourth store said something like, "boob" under his breath and walked away. Wonder why he only noticed one? Anyway I figured they must not carry them in stores maybe have to order from a catalog or online. So that's why I am writing you for help. I'm sure you tech support people can help me locate my sex drive, and I would appreciate it if you would also help me figure out what to do with it. Trisha

Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered,"Thou shall not kill."

Random Thoughts 

Random thoughts while
sipping my 2nd bottle of wine:


1) Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

2) I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

3) There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

4) How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

5) I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

6) MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

7) Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

8) I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

9) Bad decisions make good stories.

10) You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything productive for the rest of the day.

11) I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

12) I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damnit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?



13) I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

14) As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

15) I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

16) I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.

At the airport check-in counter, I overheard a woman ask for window seats for her and her husband. The clerk pointed out that this would prevent them from sitting together. "Sweetie," the woman replied, "I just spent ten days of quality time in a sub-compact rental car with this man. I know what I'm requesting."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Logan Napolitano, 18 in Pawtucket, RI Dopey bank robbers PAWTUCKET, R.I. (UPI) -- A teenage couple in Rhode Island robbed a bank, claiming to have a bomb, but were captured within hours, police said. Logan Napolitano, 18, and his 15-year-old girlfriend walked into a Bank Rhode Island branch in Pawtucket Thursday afternoon, saying they had a bomb in a garbage bag, police told the Providence Journal. Then the masked girl opened the bag and demanded the tellers fill it with money. Five hours later, detectives found the couple in a Providence house, with drugs in her purse and nearly all the stolen money inside his car. The girl was taken to a juvenile facility, but Napolitano had a drug reaction during his arrest and was hospitalized, said Maj. Arthur Martins. Dye packs slipped in with the cash burst and stained their clothes, their skin, the money and the interior of Napolitano's car, said Pawtucket Detective Donti Rosciti. A witness saw the license plate of the getaway vehicle, which led police to Napolitano's home. He was not home, but police obtained the girl's cell phone number and used it to locate the pair. Some of the money was used to buy drugs, Rosciti said.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ki Re: Pixie, Eyedropper, color pickers Dear Webby, I love your Humour letter, please never quit. It always makes my day. In regards to the colours for a website: I personally am colour blind so doing any Photoshopping becomes more than a bit of a challenge. I've compensated by using Hexidecimal and RGB values. I do this using one website and one (really tiny!) program. The site is http://chir.ag/projects/name-that-color/ and it also is in alphabetical order. The program is called Pixie. ( http://www.nattyware.com/pixie.php ) which allows you to hover over any spot on your screen and it will tell you the hex, RGB, HTML, CMYK and HSV values of that color. This makes it *much* easier for me to match colours. Sincerely and with many hugs, Ki Dear Ki For color matching I have been using the EyeDropper for many years. You can get it from my toolbox at http://webby.com/tools. It is quite a ways down the page. It sits as an icon down beside the clock. When you need a color number, grab it with the mouse and hover the magnified cross-hair over the color you want. When you got the right color, let go of the mouse button, and the color number is in the clip-board, ready to paste anywhere. When you let go of the mouse button, the eye dropper disappears back into it's icon down by the clock. Like the clock, there is no need to start or restart it, it always works and is always ready. It starts when Windows starts. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Window Locks for Home Safety Here in the east there has been a rash of robberies, by breaking into people's homes. The thieves go through open windows. You can buy a window lock, that allows you to open the window, and lock it in that position. The lock allows for ventilation by securely holding double hung windows in partially open position. Windows open fully when guard is released. 1-9/16 inch guard/mounting area required. 7/8 inch minimum glass inset. 3/4 x 1inch strike. Screws included. So if you want just a little fresh air you can set the window lock, that the window is only open a few inches. You can either purchase them on the Internet or in a hardware store. They are also called window vent guards and are made by Stanley.

One day, a housework-challenged husband decided to wash his sweatshirt. Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to his wife, "What setting do I use on the washing machine?" "It depends," she replied. "What does it say on your shirt?" He yelled back, "Texas A & M." ------- Well, I usually use the "AUTO" setting. That seems to work fine.
