Quite frequently people ask me about whether those 4-in-one 
flatbed inkjet printers are worth what they cost.
They are not.
For what they cost, you can get a very nice color laser,
that will last five to ten times as long, plus an el-cheapo
top-feed scanner.

You can run the fax right from Windows, even if you are
on dial-up, and anything you scan, you can print with the 
laser printer. There is your color copier.

The cost per page is much lower with a laser printer, and
you never have any ink dry up or go bad. They use a powder,
that is already dry, and have an auger in each powder cartridge
to make sure the powder does not settle and cake up during
extended periods of unused storage.

Have FUN!

A husband visited a marriage counselor and said, "When we were first married, I would come home from the office, my wife would bring my slippers and our cute little dog would run around barking. Now after ten years it's all different. I come home, the dog brings the slippers and my wife runs around barking at me." "Why complain?" said the counselor, "You're still getting the same service."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Nathan Alan Bramlage, 23 in Eugene, Oregon Phone call from police lobby leads to arrest EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - The young man apparently just wanted to phone his parents. But his mistake came when he made the call from the Eugene, Ore., police station lobby. Police say an officer working a desk assignment Wednesday recognized the man from surveillance footage of Tuesday's robbery of a Wells Fargo bank branch. The officer notified detectives, who arrested the man nearby. Police say 23-year-old Nathan Alan Bramlage was booked into the Lane County Jail for investigation of second-degree robbery and violating probation. Detective Ralph Burks tells the Register-Guard, "I just assume that he didn't believe that we'd recognize him."

Sally is employed by the human-development center of a corporation in the Midwest and trains employees in proper dress codes and etiquette. One day as she was stepping onto the elevator, a man casually dressed in jeans and a golf shirt got on with her. Thinking of her responsibilities, she scolded, "Dressed a little casually today, aren't we?" The man shrugged, "Yeah, well, that's the one and only fringe benefit I get these days for owning the company."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Allow Your Dishwasher to Air Dry Hello dishwasher FIENDS! To save energy costs, I fire off that sucker just an hour before bed time, then when it's done washing, I crack it open and let it air dry. If you are picky, this will not eliminate all of the water spots, but your dishes will be clean! I am not a fan of "spotless" but I am satisfied with saving money without that heat cycle. I changed all of my light bulbs and watched where the heat goes, my energy bill is always below $35.00. Good luck. Source: This is my tip along with tips from my energy company.

Joe had asked Bob to help him out with the deck after work, so Bob went straight over to Joe's place. When they got to the door, Joe went straight to his wife, gave her a hug and told her how beautiful she was and how much he had missed her at work. When it was time for supper, he complimented his wife on her cooking, kissed her and told her how much he loved her. Once they were working on the deck, Bob told Joe that he was surprised that he fussed so much over his wife. Joe said that he'd started this about 6 months ago, it had revived their marriage and things couldn't be better. Bob thought he'd give it a go. When he got home, he gave his wife a massive hug, kissed her and told her that he loved her. His wife burst into tears. Bob was confused and asked why she was crying. She said, "This is the worst day of my life. First, little Billy fell off his bike and twisted his ankle. Then, the washing machine broke and flooded the basement. And now, you come home drunk!"

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

A few readers commented about my remarks about UPS cross
border problems and related similar tales of woe. A lot more,
though, wanted to find out, what that was all about.

First I want to state that for LOCAL shipments, UPS is OK. Not 
the best deal, but not really a problem. 

The problem with UPS is at the border. They charge you an
outrageous border handling fee, that frequently is more than 
the shipped item is worth.

And example of how they rip you off is at Why NOT UPS

Since then I specify on each order:
Order canceled if shipped via UPS.

When some idiot ships via UPS anyway, I refuse to accept it
and tell them where they can stuff it. And I claim back my
payment for the item. Not what I ordered.
They don't make that mistake twice.

Have FUN!

Mrs. Hunter was called to serve for jury duty, but asked to be excused because she didn't believe in capital punishment and didn't want her personal thoughts to prevent the trial from running its proper course. But the public defender liked her thoughtfulness and quiet calm, and tried to convince her that she was appropriate to serve on the jury. "Madam," he explained, "this is not a murder trial! It's a simple civil lawsuit. A wife is bringing this case against her husband because he gambled away the $12,000 he had promised to use to remodel the kitchen for her birthday." "Well, okay," agreed Mrs. Hunter, "I'll serve. I guess I could be wrong about capital punishment after all."

One night at McCord Air Force Base, I was dispatched to check out the security fence where an alarm had gone off. The fence was at the end of the base runway. When I got to the scene, I found a raccoon was the culprit, so I ran around and flapped my arms to scare the animal away. Suddenly an air-traffic controller came over the public-address system and announced loudly, "Attention to the airman at the end of the runway. You are cleared for takeoff."

Each weekend I'll make a triple batch of one type of cookie. I'll scoop the cookies onto wax paper lined cookie sheets and cover with foil. Then I pop them into the freezer overnight. The next day I put the cookies in labeled zip top bags. As Christmas nears and I need cookies, I pull out a few of each kind, allow them to thaw about 30 minutes and bake. Presto!

There was this party in the woods and all of a sudden there was a downpour of thunder and rain. These two young men ran for about 10 minutes in the pouring rain, finally reaching their car just as the rain got even worse. They jumped in the car, started it up and soon had mud flying everywhere. They were laughing and, of course, still drinking one beer after the other. All of a sudden an old man's face appeared in the passenger window and tapped lightly on the window! The passenger man screamed out, "eeeeekkk! Look at my window!!! There's an old guy's face there!" (Was this a ghost?!?!?!?) This old man kept knocking, so the driver said "well open the window a little and ask him what he wants!" So the passenger rolled his window down part way and said, scared out of his wits, "What do you want???" The old man sofly replied, "Do you have any tobacco?" The passenger , terrified, looked at the driver and said, "He wants tobacco!" "Well give him a cigarette! HURRY!!" the driver shrieked, without letting his foot off the accelerator. So the passenger fumbles around with the pack and hands the old man a cigarette and yells at the driver "Step on it!!", rolling up the window in terror. Now going about 80 miles an hour, they calm down and they start laughing again, and the passenger says, "What do you think of that?" The driver says, "I don't know? How could that be? I am going pretty fast?" Then all of a sudden AGAIN there is a knock on the window and there is the old man again. "aaaaaaaaaaaaa, there he is again!", the passenger yells. "Well see what he wants now!" yells back the driver. He rolls down the window a little ways and shakely says "Yes?" "Do you have a light?" the old man quietly asks. He throws a lighter out the window at him and rolls up the window and yells, "STEP ON IT!" The speedometer now shows about 100 miles an hour and they are still guzzling beer, trying to forget what they had just seen and heard, when all of a sudden again there is more knocking! "Oh my God! HE'S BACK!" He rolls down the window and screams out, "WHAT DO YOU WANT?" in stark fear. The old man smiles and gently asks, "Do you want some help getting out of the mud?"

An Irishman's been at a pub all night drinking. The bartender finally says that the bar is closed. So he stands up to leave and falls flat on his face. He figures he'll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up. Once outside he stands up and falls flat on his face. So he crawls home and at the door stands up and falls flat on his face. He crawls through the door and up the stairs. When he reaches his bed he tries one more time to stand up. This time he falls right into bed and is sound asleep. He awakens the next morning to his wife standing over him shouting at him. 'So, you've been out drinking again!!' 'How did you know?' he asks. 'The pub called, you left your wheelchair there again.'

Happy Thanksgiving, if you are in the USA!

Kudos to TigerDirect!

Before the net, I used to buy computer stuff from Tiger by
regular mail, after browsing their paper catalog. I have
always been happy with their fast and efficient service,
until UPS and their sleazy border rip-off soured that,
until Tiger opened http://www.tigerdirect.ca/

Yesterday a friend asked me how she could get a computer
to her son in the US in a hurry. No company would ship to
an address that was different from a credit card address.

No problem! (That used to be my nickname, when I was a
Journeyman Electromechanic)
Go to tigerDirect.com, and see if this model will do.
Sent her the link via Skype. Yes, that was fine, but, but, but.....

No Problem. Slide me that amount plus $20 for shipping via
PayPal and tell me your son's shipping address.

Then I called Tiger and after fudging my way through the
whispered voice menu by hitting # a few times, talked to Jean.
Friendly, clear voice, easy to understand even with my tin ears.
I asked him if he could process the order manually and send 
me a PayPal invoice. Sure. 

A few minutes later I got the request to authorize in my email, 
clicked on it. Then I got an email to call their verification 
number. I did, but because I use Skype to call, they did not 
see my number and called me back.
Yep. Still the same voice. All OK. 
An hour later the computer was picked up by UPS.
Thanks, Jean!

Don't try that with the Taliban at HP or any other company, 
but at TigerDirect, there are friendly people, who are on YOUR
side, who actually listen and who can handle non-standard 
situations.

If you want to send a computer or computer related stuff
to somebody for Christmas, like for example a head set for mom,
Tiger will take care of it. 
Don't be shy about calling their free number: 800-800-8300

By the way, I am not an affiliate or seller for Tiger, 
just giving credit where credit is due.

Have FUN!

The Russian man put his hand out and reached down into the clouds. "Aaah!" he said. "We're right over my homeland." "How can you tell?" asked the American. "I can feel the cold air." he replied. A few days later the African man put his hand through the clouds. "Aah we're right over my homeland." he said. "How do you know that?" asked the Russian. "I can feel the heat of the desert." Several more days later the American put his hand through the clouds. "Aah, we're right over Washington." The Russian and the African were amazed. "How do you know all of that?!" they exclaimed. The American pulled his hand in and held it up for them to see. "My watch is missing."

I stopped at a roadside stand in Southern California that sold fruit, vegetables, and crafts. As I went to pay, I noticed the young woman behind the counter was painting a sign.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to tree dopes in Portsmouth, RI: Sean Riley, 45, David Nicholson, 19 and Ryan Souza, 19 Portsmouth man faces pot charge after reporting theft PORTSMOUTH, R.I. -- Something seemed suspicious, then ridiculous. Two young men were seen carrying a safe. They took it out of a house, down a driveway and into a car. This was at 2:40 p.m. Thursday on Martens Road, just before a resident on the street decided he had seen enough, and called the police. Officers spotted the car and pulled it over on East Main Road near the intersection of Sandy Point Avenue. "In the back of the vehicle was a safe," said Lt. Brian Peters of the Portsmouth Police Department. The two men, both 19, were brought to the police station for questioning. And while they were being questioned, the police received a call from a man reporting his safe was stolen. Come on down, the police said. So, Sean Riley, 45, of 33 Martens Road got in his car and drove to the police station to retrieve his safe. The police were able to open the safe with Riley's assistance. "He gave us the code," Peters said. "He wanted to prove it was his safe." "When the officers opened it up, they got quite a surprise," Peters said. The safe contained more than $5,000 and about two pounds of marijuana, according to Peters. This discovery fascinated the officers, who wondered what else Riley might possess. So they went to his house. "We found 14 marijuana plants growing in a shed at the rear of his property," Peters said. "And we found additional marijuana inside the home." Riley was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. The two burglary suspects were arrested, too. David Nicholson of 602 Black Point Lane, Portsmouth, and Ryan Souza of 24 Eric Court, Portsmouth, were both charged with breaking and entering and larceny over $500. In addition, both were charged with possession of marijuana. No, the marijuana possession charge has nothing to do with the marijuana that was in the safe in the back of the car. "When they were stopped, they were found to have marijuana under their seat," Peters said. Everyone involved is scheduled to be arraigned Friday in District Court in Newport.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Gale Re: Fragmentation and non-removeable pictures Dear Webby, Thank you for your quick response to my computer problem/question. I downloaded DiskKeeper and ran it. It showed a lot of corrupt files. When it was done it said it had restore about 50% later I notice it said 100%. I was shocked that I had so many corrupt files and was wondering how files get conrupt. Web sites I visit, downloads, emails or any number of things is what my conclusion was. Am I right in my thinking? As I was going through my computer cleaning things out, I came upon some pictures that had become attached to my computer from emails where I downloaded the pictures. There is no way I can find to get them off. No delete option, right click doesn't work, highlighting them didn't work either. I am at a lost how to rid my computer of them. There are many of them that I have gotten over the past and I always try to delete after viewing so as not to use up memory space on my computer. Apparently I could delete the email but the pictures stayed on my computer. Any idea about how to rid myself of them? Thank you for all your help. I really, really appreciate it. Gale Thank you, --------------------- Dear Gale File fragmentation happens when you save anything more than once. Let's say you start writing a book, and you got the auto-save set for 2 minutes. Then you get sidetracked and have to do some banking. You save that too. That gets parked next to where you had saved the book. Now as you write more, that stuff does not have room there, and gets put into any other open spot. That slot may be small, and after a few minutes of writing, stuff has to be put into a third location. So, pretty soon, that book file is actually 27 fragments spread all over the place. Naturally, it takes the computer a lot more time to cope with fragmented files, than when each one is in just ONE location. And it uses up a lot of RAM to track all th fragments. DisKeeper finds empty spaces, and moves the fragments of each file together into contiguous slots. That takes big load off the computer, especially the RAM. Of course, gradually stuff gets fragmented again. That is why you schedule DisKeeper to run either whenever the screen saver comes on, or at certain times of the night. As for weeding out pictures, that depends a lot on what email program you use. With Eudora, there is a folder called Embedded and one for Attachments. You can browse in there with a graphics program or even the File Explorer set to show thumbnails, sort them by size and get rid of the silly Incredimail nuisances and similar text decorations, and then weed out the rest. Just make it a habit to go in there and weed, whenever you are on hold on a phone. Eudora has had that set-up since the late 80's and most other email programs copied that concept and have similar features. Have FUN! DearWebby

A dietitian was once addressing a large audience in Chicago. "The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is awful. Soft drinks erode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. Vegetables can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water." "But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all have, or will, eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?" A 75-year-old man in the front row stood up and said, "Wedding cake."

Gullible Warming is currently: -31
There was some nice red and orange in the sunset, so it should
be getting nicer in the next few days. 

There were quite a few comments and questions about what I do 
with my fridge and freezer to save $100 a year. Basically, 
a fridge or freezer takes calories out of the interior of it, and 
puts them outside.The cooler it is outside, around the 
condenser radiator, where it pushes the calories off,
the less electricity is required to do that.

In winter it is handy, when the fridge pumps all that waste heat
into the kitchen, but for most of the year, it is a lot more 
convenient, when the kitchen stays cool. If you are in a warm 
climate, and need to run an air conditioner, it gets really
silly, paying for heating up the kitchen with the fridge / freezer,
and then paying for pumping that heat outside with the air 
conditioner. 

By sticking my fridge/freezer (almost) through the wall, like
a window or wall air conditioner, I eliminate all that hassle
and expense.

Have FUN!

Once there was a millionaire, who collected live alligators. He kept them in the pool in back of his mansion. The millionaire also had a beautiful daughter who was single. One day he decides to throw a huge party, and during the party he announces, "My dear guests...I have a proposition to every man here. I will give one million dollars or my daughter to the man who can swim across this pool full of alligators and emerge unharmed!" As soon as he finished his last word, there was the sound of a large SPLASH!! There was one guy in the pool swimming with all he could...the crowd cheered him on as he kept stroking. Finally, he made it to the other side unharmed. The millionaire was impressed. He said, "My boy that was incredible! Fantastic! I didn't think it could be done! Well I must keep my end of the bargain...which do you want, my daughter or the one million dollars?" The guy says, "Listen, I don't want your money! And I don't want your daughter! I want to get my hands onto whoever it was, that pushed me in !!!"

Harry was in the hospital. He was an old man. There was this young nurse. Every time she came in, she talked to him like he was a little child. She would say in a patronizing tone of voice: "And how are we doing this morning?" Well, this is a story of revenge. He had received breakfast, and pulled the juice off the tray, and put it on his stand. He had been given a urine bottle to fill. The juice was apple juice. You know where the juice went. The nurse came in and picked up the urine bottle. She looks at it. "It seems we are a little cloudy today." At this he snatches the bottle out of her hand, pops off the top and chugs it, saying "Well, I'll run it through again. Maybe I can filter it better this time."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Salvatore LaRosa, 25, Staten Island Robber made off with wrong dough How did the mugger botch the robbery of a Staten Island pizza man? He grabbed the wrong bag of dough, of course. Salvatore LaRosa, 25, wasn't laughing when he surrendered to the feds on Friday to be charged in what authorities said would have been been a well-planned stickup. LaRosa and an unidentified accomplice allegedly followed the owners of Brother's Pizzeria home on June 30, 2008. They put on masks and confronted the victims at gunpoint in their driveway, according to a complaint unsealed Monday in Brooklyn Federal Court. The assailants demanded one of the shopkeepers hand over a bag - thinking it contained the day's proceeds, officials said. "The bag that was stolen contained pizza dough," Drug Enforcement Administration agent Kristie Osswald stated in the complaint. Even though it wasn't cash, the robbery victim resisted and was shot twice in the legs. LaRosa was released Monday on $1 million bail, small change for a crook like him.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Gale Re: Not enough virtual memory Dear Webby, I have a computer question for you. My computer gives me messages that my virtual memory is low or I am low on memory. I have done nothing to use up memory like downloads or anything like that. I have checked your tool box and didn't see anything to clean up or refigure my computer. I have used ccrap cleaner, run disk defra, disk cleaner and history delete. I have turned off my computer and rebooted it to restore anything or reset things they made have needed it. Also when I am typing an email, my words come up later then sooner so I can't see what I am typing as I go. Then all of a sudden everything appears like it should have done all alone. I am at a lost as to what is happening or why. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you, Gale --------------------- Dear Gale "Virtual Memory" is a space on the hard drive fenced off and reserved to act like RAM, whenever the real RAM is full. Normally, the size of that fenced off area is set to twice the amount of real RAM, that is installed. You can change that size though Control Panel, System. Personally, especially since sbcglobal/yahoo is involved, I would run a full McAfee scan and find out, what is using that much RAM. If McAfee does not find and remove anything suspicious, then I would use DisKeeper to thoroughly check the hard drive. On my machines DisKeeper is installed the day I get the machines, and runs every night, and I don't get those problems. Have FUN! DearWebby

Following an especially angry argument, Mr. and Mrs. Smith went to bed not speaking to each other. Needing to arise early the following morning, Mr. Smith left a note on his wife's bedside table that said "Wake me at six." An exasperated Mr. Smith awoke at ten the following morning and rolled stiffly out of bed to see a note on his bedside table: "It's six, you lazy bum! Get out of bed!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Substitute Broth in Place of Milk I've recently found out I'm lactose intolerant. One of my greatest discoveries is all the ways I can use chicken, beef or vegetable broth in place of milk: mashed potatoes, gravies, soups, omelets, "creamed" dishes, etc. I use low sodium chicken broth most often. For mashed potatoes, I use chicken broth, soy or olive oil margarine, unflavored non-dairy creamer, pinch of salt, pepper and a dash of garlic powder. Even my picky husband likes them. For creamed dishes I'll use chicken broth and the creamer. The same for pancakes and biscuits. Experiment: you'll find the amounts and combination you like. Broths and creamer are inexpensive if you buy store brands and stock up when they're on sale. Bonus: Helps in weight loss.

A college senior took his new girlfriend to a football game. The young couple found seats in the crowded stadium and were watching the action. A substitute was put into the game, and as he was running onto the field to take his position, the boy said to his girlfriend, "Take a good look at that fellow. I expect him to be our best man next year." His girlfriend snuggled closer to him and said, "That's the strangest way I ever heard of for a fellow to propose to a girl. Regardless of how you said it, I accept!"

Gullible Warming has sunk to a new low: -30

This afternoon I took the front cover from the bottom of the fridge, 
so that now it is pumping the waste heat into the kitchen, 
instead of outside. It is not quite as energy efficient that
way, but if the cooling air on the hot grid gets below -30,
the newfangled freon substitutes stop working, and the freezer
will thaw out. I sure don't want to risk the berries and 
rhubarb, that I put in there during summer and fall!

Have FUN!

"If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable." --- Seneca
An angel appears at a faculty meeting and tells the dean that in return for his unselfish and exemplary behavior, the Lord will reward him with his choice of infinite wealth, wisdom, or beauty. Without hesitating, the dean selects infinite wisdom. "Done!" says the angel, and disappears in a cloud of smoke and a bolt of lightning. Now, all heads turn toward the dean, who sits surrounded by a faint halo of light. At length, one of his colleagues whispers, "Say something." The dean sighs and says, "I should have taken the money."

Fred was in the hospital recovering from a bypass operation. A member of his church's council came to visit. He said he brought greetings from the entire council and their wishes that he should recover soon and live a long and healthy life. Fred thanked him and said that was very nice. He was somewhat taken aback and said, "It's more than 'nice,' Father Fred. It was an official resolution ... passed by a vote of 14 to 12."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Virginia Magana, 39, Erica Jimenez, 18 of Modesto, California Mother, Daughter, Teen Accused of Robbing Elderly Woman of Purse CALIFORNIA – A mother, her daughter, and a 13-year-old girl face charges after a robbery of an elderly woman in a shopping center parking lot. The incident happened on Monday around 11:30 a.m. Police responded to the Target store in north Modesto for a purse snatching. A 74-year-old female was walking to a bus stop when a young female approached her from behind and yanked her purse off her shoulder. The juvenile ran to a waiting white Mazda that was occupied by several other subjects. As the vehicle sped away, it crashed into a nearby decorative rock and lost the front license plate. The vehicle continued to flee the scene, running over and killing a cat that was in its path. When officers arrived, they checked the license plate and identified the owner. They went to the residence and arrested Virginia Magana, a 39-year-old Modesto resident, when she arived home in that vehicle. Magana was taken into custody without incident. Investigators were able to identify two more suspects who were involved. They arrested Magana ‘s daughter, 18-year-old Erica Jimenez, and a 13-year-old female Modesto resident. Police believe the women were actively looking for a victim when they found the 74-year-old elderly female. Virginia Magana faces charges of robbery, conspiracy, and hit and run. Erica Jimenez faces charges of robbery, conspiracy, and elder abuse. Both were booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center. The 13-year-old female faces charges of robbery, conspiracy, and elder abuse. She was booked into the Stanislaus County Juvenile Hall.

One evening, Joanne and two girlfriends went to a nightclub, only to find the place packed with young people. At 40, they felt old by comparison, but before they could make a dignified exit, a tall, handsome man approached them. "Perhaps we were being a little hasty in leaving," Joanne thought. Then with a big smile, the man extended his hand to one of her friends and said, "Hello. Remember me? You taught me in third grade.

Old Dr. Carver still made house calls. One afternoon he was called to the Tuttle house. Mrs. Tuttle was in terrible pain. The doctor came out of the bedroom a minute after he'd gone in and asked Mr. Tuttle, "Do you have a hammer?" A puzzled Mr. Tuttle went to the garage, and returned with a hammer. The doctor thanked him and went back into the bedroom. A moment later, he came out and asked, "Do you have a chisel?" Mr. Tuttle complied with the request. In the next ten minutes, Dr. Carver asked for and received a pair of pliers, a screwdriver and a hacksaw. The last request got to Mr. Tuttle. He asked, "What are you doing to my wife?" "Not a thing," replied old doc Carver. "I can't get my instrument bag open."

Dina was driving down a highway and all of a sudden a cop sitting on the roadside turns on his flashing red lights. Upon seeing the red lights she pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the cop. When the cop gets there he says to the her, "Lady you were doing 43 miles per hour in a 30 mile an hour zone." Dina said, "No I wasn't. The sign back there said 43." To this the cop snaps back, "Lady, look ... that was a highway number sign, this is highway 43 and your doing 43 miles an hour in a 30 mile an hour zone." Dina repeats her story again claiming she was not speeding. The cop scratches his head and returns to his car to ask his bald partner what he should do. After telling his bald partner the story, his partner says, "Bill, you better give her a ticket. The 401 is just up ahead and with this old patrol car we'll never catch her there." That apparently was a recurring problem, and they renamed the 401, the TransCanada, to #1, and then to "Highway Of Heroes" to honor the troops we lost in Afghanistan. Highway of Heroes

Moving A Computer 

Sometimes it becomes necessary to move your computer to a new location for whatever reason; installing/adding new hardware or just decided to move it for "easier access", for instance (note easier access in quotation marks).
Whatever your reason is, this handy guide may help you alleviate some of the stress that always arises in such occasions.
Keep in mind that this is a venture only to be undertaken by those who know what they're doing...and masochists.

1. Bone up on your cursing. You will need it later.

2. Pick a "good" spot to locate your computer. Don't be too picky; you will regret having started on this venture soon enough.

3. Disconnect all cables, cords, power sources, umbilical cords and plumbing. Look at the black, gray & white spaghetti mess on the floor and sob. Refer to number 1. While you're at it, it helps to focus on cursing Bill Gates and Steve Jobs for making all this possible.



4. Be sure to dust machine off, since it's been sitting for months in one spot, gathering a dust mound the size of Mt. Rainier. This is especially essential if you have asthma.



5. Now that you've picked a *good* spot, it's time to replace all the cables, cords, etc. Make sure it's in a dark, hard-to-reach location.

6. New computers have color-coded plugs and plugins to make assembly easier. This has no bearing on you since your computer is in a dark, hard-to-reach location and they're all the same color: gray. See number 1.





7. Get a flashlight. Look for new batteries for flashlight you've left in the junk drawer for months. Go to store to buy new flashlight batteries since you don't have any. Rule number 1 is coming in handy now.



8. While inserting various cords and cables, be sure to drop at least one on the floor behind the desk, where it will take a contortionist to retrieve it.

9. Find out that your printer cable is now not long enough to reach the computer (see number 1). Oh well, you didn't use it that much anyway.

10. Once you have all the cables, etc. back in place, turn computer back on.

11. Sit, puzzled why computer isn't working.



12. Plug monitor in.

13. Ponder why keyboard and mouse don't work.



14. Switch keyboard and mouse plugins.

15. Call spouse in to admire your handiwork.

16. Spouse informs you that he/she liked it better where it was, and to move it back.

17. When asked why you're banging your head on the monitor, don't reply. It would only confuse him/her.

moisture across the prairies, when it collided with the even
colder and wetter Altantic air, it got nasty. Seems to have

There was this man who had a dog which he was attempting to train, but alas had very little success. He was on the verge of despair when he happened across a very charismatic evangelist. He unburdened his soul to the preacher, who promptly informed him to leave the dog with him, and he would have it trained in a jiffy. The next day the man returns, and asks how the evangelist got on. The reply was positive, and the evangelist calls the dog to give a demonstration. Picking up a stick, he throws it and says, "Fetch." Instantly the dog takes off, grabs the stick and returns. The evangelist says, "Drop" and the dog drops the stick at his feet. "Roll over," and the dog rolls over. By this time the dog's owner is very excited, and asks if he can have a go. "Sure," replies the evangelist. "Heel!" says the owner and the dog lifts one paw, places it on the man's forehead and says, "I command this sickness to leave you..."

"I'd like to come back," said the teacher, "as a really nasty childhood disease."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jennifer Lee Riojas, 25, Fort Worth, Texas Hospital Sex With Student Sinks Teacher NOVEMBER 18--A Texas science teacher charged with having sex with a male student first engaged in illicit conduct while the teen was hospitalized for an injury sustained during a high school football game. That’s just one of the creepy revelations in an arrest warrant filed against Jennifer Lee Riojas, 25, who was arrested yesterday for sexual assault of a child. Riojas is pictured above in a mug shot taken after a prior drunk driving arrest. Riojas’s alleged involvement with the boy began last year when he was a 16-year-old sophomore at Fort Worth High School, where she worked as a ninth-grade teacher. The teen told cops that “once he got to know” Riojas, she would attend his football games and he “would spend his lunch period” in her classroom. After the student was injured last December during a game, Riojas visited him at Fort Worth Hospital. There, the boy told detectives, “they engaged in sexual intercourse” in his hospital bed. Subsequent sexual encounters occurred at local hotels, the victim recalled, adding that Riojas used a discount coupon when paying for one room. According to CNN, the poor "innocent child" turned her in to the police before he turned 18, when he found out she was pregnant.

One of the people complained: "He is taking food out of the mouths of the children of good Union people! Instead of one capitalist getting rich in an hour, twenty Uninon men could earn a living in that hole with shovels and wheelbarrows for a whole month!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Flannel Sheets for a Warm Bed My most favorite way of keeping warm is to use flannel sheets on the bed. Apparently it's a good idea because my two dogs love it, too. I also purchased a electric heater that rolls easily from room to room, great money saver. By Carolyn from Springville, AL http://www.thriftyfun.com/ Flannel sheets retain moisture and even though they still feel cozy, don't have much insulating value, unless they are aired out frequently. Just draping the top sheets and cover over the footboard, so that they AND the bottom sheets are exposed to moving air for a few hours, is enough. You will notice the difference immediately.

A young ensign had nearly completed his first overseas tour of sea duty when he was given an opportunity to display his ability at getting the ship under way. With a stream of crisp commands, he had the decks buzzing with men and soon, the ship had left port and was steaming out of the channel. The ensign's efficiency has been remarkable. In fact, the deck was abuzz with talk that he had set a new record for getting a destroyer under way. The ensign glowed at his accomplishment and was not all surprised when another seaman approached him with a message from the captain. He was, however, a bit surprised to find that it was a radio message, and he was even more surprised when he read, "My personal congratulations upon completing your underway preparation exercise according to the book and with amazing speed. In your haste, however, you have overlooked one of the unwritten rules -- make sure the captain is aboard before getting under way."

One day, while out for a walk in the woods, the Tennessee man comes across a wolf caught in a trap. He rushes back to his house and calls his Kentucky neighbor. "There's one of your wolves caught in a trap on my side of the forest." "How do you know it's one of *our* wolves?" the Kentucky farmer asked. "Well," the Tennessee man replied, "he's already chewed off three of his legs and he's still trapped."

I gaze at the brilliant moon. The same one, I think to myself, at which Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato gazed. Suddenly, I imagine they appear beside me. I tell Socrates about the national debate over one's right to die and wonder at the constancy of the human condition. I tell Plato that I live in the country that has come closest to Utopia and I show him a copy of the Constitution. I tell Aristotle that we have found many more than four basic elements and I show him a periodic table. Then I get a box of kitchen matches and strike one. They gasp with wonder. We spend the rest of the night lighting farts.
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Deodorize Your Oven If baking or roasting anything in your oven leaves an unpleasant odor, leave a shallow bowl of baking soda or white vinegar in the cold oven for a few days or more. This will absorb the odors in the oven. If you are going to use white vinegar, place the bowl on a cookie sheet or something stable so it doesn't spill. Also, do not forget to remove it when you are preheating the oven. If you are forgetful, just be sure to use a oven proof bowl, just in case.

What happened?" asked the hospital visitor to the heavily bandaged man sitting up in bed. "Well, I went down to Busch Gardens on vacation and decided to take a ride on the Loch Ness Monster... As we came up to the top of the highest loop, I noticed a little sign by the side of the track. I tried to read it but it was very small and I couldn't make it out. I was so curious that I decided to go round again, but we went by so quickly that I couldn't see what the sign said. By now, I was determined to read that sign so I went round a third time. As we reached the top, I stood up in the car to get a better view." "And did you manage to see what the sign said this time?" asked the visitor. "Yes," he said sheepishly, "Remain seated at all times!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a no longer fugitive guy in Fort Worth, Texas Driver jumps out of moving car during chase HOUSTON -- A man was arrested Monday after a wild police chase in North Texas. Police said it started in Fort Worth where an officer tried to make a traffic stop, but the driver took off instead. During the chase the suspect drove through grass and rear-ended another vehicle, but kept on driving all the way through the nearby town of Granbury, police said. He eventually jumped out of his moving vehicle, and then jumped over a nearby guard rail where he took off running before running out of steam and falling down. That’s when officers jumped him, from the looks of it, feet first, and finally arrested the man. Investigators say the man ran because he was wanted for violating parole on a burglary charge. He now faces more charges, including evading arrest. Chase movie

The instructor, a poice officer, emphasized that being on time was crucial and that the classroom doors would be locked when each session began. Just after one class started, someone knocked on the locked door. The officer opened it and asked, "Why are you late?" The student replied, "A cop was ahead of me in traffic and I had to do the speed limit all the way into town!"

Two kids, aged 10 and 12 were sitting under a quilt on the couch watching television. Their mother joined them, and complained that there was not enough quilt for her. The 10 year old replied "That's because the quilt is in portrait not landscape!" And sure enough, when we turned the quilt to "landscape", they all fit under it quite nicely!

The Anniversary 

While enjoying an early morning breakfast in a northern Alberta cafe, four elderly ranchers were discussing everything from cattle, horses, and weather, to how things used to be in the "good old days."
Eventually the conversation moved on to their spouses. One gentleman turned to the fellow on his right and asked,
"Roy, aren't you and your bride celebrating your fiftieth wedding anniversary soon?"

"Yup, we sure are," Roy replied. "Well, are you gonna do anything special to celebrate?" another man asked.

The old gentleman pondered this for a moment, then replied,
"For our twenty-fifth anniversary, I took Bea to McDonalds in Lethbridge.
Maybe for our fiftieth, I'll go down there and get her."

When the EzineFinder is down, like it was again yesterday, 
there is nothing I can do about it. They are not on our servers, 
but hosted somewhere in California. Your letters show me, that
you tried to vote, which cheers me, but please don't expect 
instant results or a reply.

Right now it's -26. I got the driveway to the garage shoveled
in the afternoon, when it was warmer. Still got to do the sidewalk
in the front along 2nd Street, and will probably do that this
afternoon, if it either warms up a bit or if the wind slows down.
As it is, I am not too concerned. In this wind, there are no 
pedestrians out and about anyway.

A man was driving down a local street one day in an open convertible and approached a stop sign. He barely slowed down and ran right through the stop sign after glancing for traffic. What the driver didn't know was that a cop was watching the intersection. The cop pulled out after him and stopped him 2 blocks away and asked him for his " License, registration and proof of insurance" The driver said: "Hey I wanna know exactly what I did wrong first?" The Officer responded "Please watch your tone of voice, you failed the stop sign back there!" The driver said: "Hey man, I slowed down enough, what the heck is the difference?" The police officer then pulled out his night stick and his long flashlight began bashing them over the mans head in a spirited drum solo. Within seconds the driver was howling: "Hey, man, stop that. Stop it. Stop, please!" The officer said " Now, do you want me to really stop, or just slow down a bit ?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Carey Sterling, 43, in Missoula, Montana Thanks to Kathy for alerting me to this one: Homesick for jail MISSOULA - The Missoula woman who stole a meter maid's scooter and then tried stealing a police car just a few months ago, was recently sentenced and then she set a fire in the Missoula Police Department and assaulted an officer. Just last week Carey Sterling was sentenced for stealing the Missoula Parking Commission's scooter. The judge gave her credit for the time she already served in jail and she was given a deferred sentence. "Please don't do anything in the next 6 months except pay this off," said Missoula District Court Judge Dusty Deschamps, when he sentenced Sterling last Tuesday and told her to pay off her fines. Sometime in the last week Sterling got out of jail and on Wednesday she came into the Missoula Police Department to confess to an arson. In court documents, prosecutors say the officer she was speaking to told her she didn't have enough details about the crime and that it needed to be investigated further. The officer also thought Sterling was trying to get back into jail and he told her he wouldn't arrest her at that time. Sterling then told him "Well I guess I will just have to assault you then." She then kicked him in the shin, punched him in the face and sat down, waiting to be arrested. The officer went in to talk to his supervisor and when he came out, he saw that Sterling had set a garbage can on fire in the entrance of the police department. Sterling is being charged with assault on a peace officers and negligent arson, and now gets to sit off her deferred sentences at the warm and cozy Missoula Govt Resort..

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Re-Run, no new tip today Start Christmas Cactus for Next Year's Gifts It is a little too late for this holiday season but you can get started for next year. I was in a store the other day and glanced at the price of their Christmas Cactus. To pay $134.00 for a gift that will cost me max $2.00 is crazy. If you start now, you can save. Take a piece of your own Christmas cactus and put it in a small pot (2 inch) with good potting soil. As the year goes on fertilize with liquid fertilizer once a month. Once it starts growing, repot to 3 inch and so on, but remember they do better root bound. By the holidays next year, you should have a good size plant(s) to give as gifts. By Katarinabell from Sunny Florida The secret for good growth and lots of blossoms with those is wind. They need the wind to pump moisture and nutrients up to the leaves. Just like trees, the more wind they get, the tougher and stronger they get. There is no need to bring them in because of a storm. To get them to look like this (Click through for larger picture), dad hangs them from post supported beams, that are 8 feet above ground, all frost free months, then in an unheated lean-to until a week or two before Christmas. Hanging them under the eaves or from balcony ceilings works well too. A single leaf broken off one around Christmas and suspended in a glass of water, will have created enough roots for successful potting around Valentines Day. Have FUN!

A couple went shopping at the mall. They decided to go their separate ways and meet two hours later. The husband was at their appointed meeting place at the appointed time, but there was no sign of his wife. After waiting for half an hour, he started looking for her but couldn't find her in any of the stores she usually frequented. Finally, thoroughly tired of looking for her, he approached a beautiful lady on a mall bench. He smiled at her and said, "Please, talk to me! Quick!" She said, "Why?" "Because I've been looking for my wife all over this silly mall and I can't find her," the man replied. "How will talking to me help you find your wife? I have absolutely no idea what she looks like, much less where she is." "I didn't think you did. However, every time I start talking to a beautiful woman, my wife appears out of nowhere!"

When I looked at the page count on Triangle B tonight, I was 
quite surprised. I had thought that probably 20% of the readers 
liked horses and would go have a quick look. I was way off in
my guessing. Not even one percent!

Worried, that you might fall in love with a horse like Thriller
and then be told by the landlord, that you can't keep horses
in your top floor apartment?

Well, I can't keep horses here either. I'd have the space, but
the ridiculously high water bills make it unthinkable. I still
enjoy seeing them, though, and never turn down an invitation
to go riding.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Principal Liz Seabury at Delmar Highschool, California Dear Webby Here is a great International Bonehead award candidate from my home town!! You really can't fix stupid...not even in high school principals! Cookie Principal forbids ambulance to drive on football field track Del Mar High School's principal is under fire after blocking an ambulance from driving onto the school's track to reach a 14-year-old who suffered a concussion during a football game. Emergency workers had to haul a gurney 75 yards downfield to where Keanu Gallardo lay after suffering a blow to his neck and helmet near the end of Del Mar's frosh-soph game on Oct. 29. The boy's mother, Josephine Amaya, is livid and waiting for a formal apology from the school and the Campbell Union High School District. She said her son has suffered from headaches and neck pain and is being watched for potential brain damage. It isn't clear whether the delay had any impact on Keanu's health, but medical experts say sometimes every second counts when a player, especially a teenager, is crumpled on the field with a head injury. Firefighters and paramedics were "clearly agitated and angry" about the decision to block the ambulance. "I'm aghast at the decision that was made," said Matthew Dean, a Campbell Union High School board member. "The answer is real simple. A field is replaceable. A child's life is not." Principal Liz Seabury said Monday that she was only following orders. "I was told not to let vehicles onto the field," she said. The Del Mar Dons were trailing Prospect 20-6 with minutes to go. Keanu dashed 10 yards when another player's helmet slammed into his neck. As he went down, he was hit again, this time on his helmet, witnesses said. With the wide tires used by today's ambulances, the track around the field or even the field itself would not have suffered any damage whatsoever. The pounds per square inch pressure is comparable to a lawn mower. ------------ I have seen the big BK117 twin jet high speed ambulance helicopters land on the high school soccer field across the street. On the ground, their 5 ton weight is carried on those pipes, that they use for skids. They never left a mark on the field. With a wheeled ambuance there would be even less legitimate concern. She probably just wanted to throw her weight around and needs to be replaced.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: David Re: Lost Firefox tabs and history Dear Webby I updated Crap Cleaner and ran it first thing after starting the computer, instead of as usual when I get close to locking up, and after that, when I started FireFox, all the previous tabs and history were gone! Is there a way to get them back? And what should I do to rpevent that? David --------------------- Dear David Crap Cleaner is not really intended to be run first thing, but as a rescue, when your RAM is too cluttered with crap. When you leave FireFox open, it won't touch any of it's tabs or history. If you run CrapCleaner, while FireFox is off, make 100% sure that you go into it's settings, Applications, and take ALL the checkmarks off the Firefox section, unless you want to hide your tracks. If you have those checkmarks on, neither your spouse nor the CIA can get your tabs and history back. Yes, I know, it causes a very sick and devastating feeling to loose all that. I found out the hard way too. So, either leave FireFox open, or go and make sure that those checkmarks are OFF. Have FUN! DearWebby

What's "The Faces Of Fall" all about? 
Don't worry, it's not another line-up of ugly politicians or dopey
stars or plastic models. Subscriber Brenda at TriangleB took
mug shots of her favorite horses. Today's picture is one of 
them. They are all TWH (Tennessee Walking Horses), specially
selected and bred for day long riding on the trail. 

I rode one once from Tincup Lake to Kluane Lake, about 30 - 40
Miles, in one day, leading three pack horses.Even though that 
trip was through rather steep and rough country and included 
a deep river crossing, I had no saddle sores or blisters the 
next day. I would NOT want to try that trip on any other 
breed of horses.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Sterling Thurman, 37, in Clearwater, Florida Shoeless Man Posing As Police Officer Arrested CLEARWATER, Fla. (970 WFLA) - A man from Clearwater tried to enter a woman’s home by pretending to be a police officer, a Clearwater police spokeswoman said. Thirty-seven-year-old Sterling Thurman showed up at the woman’s home on Druid Road Monday morning and told her he was an officer, but she refused to let him in, said police. The woman, 60-year-old Jannie Young, was suspicious after noticing that Thurman was not wearing shoes. She asked for ID and Thurman showed her a business card belonging to a Belleair Police officer. When Young called the real police, he fled, detectives said. After getting a description from the victim, officers found Thurman close to the home. He made incriminating statements and had the business card still on him. Detectives say the two do not know each other, and said it’s not clear why he was trying to get into her home.

I e-mailed him back and told him I don't even eat that stuff and I have no idea how you can send it to someone through a computer." "And what he did say?" "You know what he said. He used Your name in vain. You don't think he might have sent me one of those plagues and that's the reason I lost those ten things, do you?" "They're called viruses, Moses." "Whatever! This computer stuff is just too much for me. Can we just go back to those stone tablets? It was hard on my back taking them out and reading them each day, but I never lost them." "We'll do it the new way, Moses." "I was afraid you would say that, sir." "Moses, what did I tell you to do if you messed up?" "You told me to hold up this rat and stretch it out toward the computer." "It's a mouse, Moses. Mouse! Mouse! And did you do that?" "No, I decided to try the technical support first. After all, who knows more about this stuff than you, and I really like your hours. By the way, sir, did Noah have two of these mice on the ark?" "No, Moses." "One other thing. Why didn't you name them frogs instead of mice, because didn't you tell me the thing they sit on is a pad?" "I didn't name them, Moses. Man did, and you can call yours a frog if you want to." "Oh, that explains it. Kind of like Adam, huh, sir? I bet some woman told him to call it a mouse. After all, wasn't it a woman who named one of the computers Apple?" "Say good night, Moses." "Wait a minute, sir. I am stretching out the mouse and it seems to be working. Yes, a couple of the ten things have come back." "Which ones are they, Moses?" "Let's see. 'Thou shalt not steal from any grave an image and 'Thou shalt not uncover thy neighbor's wife.' "Turn the computer off, Moses. I'm sending you another set of stone tablets. How does 'Same Day Air' sound? Watch ouuuuuut!!!!"

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.

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.

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.

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.

On vacation with her family in Montana, a mother drove her van past a church in a small town and pointing to it, told the children that it was St. Francis' Church. "It must be a franchise," her eight-year-old son said. "We've got one of those in our town too."
She looked like such a sweet little old lady, driving the cute Toyota with a bumper sticker that said: "Get your own dope." How sweet, I thought, must be a medical marijuana patient. Then I noticed the rest of her message: "Lease a Senator."

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.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Nofries Re: vacuum laptops too? Good Morning Dear Webby, I really enjoy your Daily Humor Letter. 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.

According to the Knight-Ridder News Service, the inscription on the metal bands used by the U.S. Department of the Interior to tag migratory birds has been changed. The bands used to bear the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated Wash. Biol. Surv. until the agency received the following letter from an Arkansas camper: "Dear Sirs: While camping last week I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and I want to tell you it was horrible." The bands are now marked Fish and Wildlife Service.

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!"
A Sunday school teacher was instructing her class. Just before she dismissed them to go to church she asked them, "Why is it necessary to be quiet in church?" was quick to blurt out what was certainly the correct answer, "Because people are sleeping!"

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

Jolene had wanted new kitchen cabinets for a long time, but her husband insisted they were an extravagance. She went to visit her mother for two weeks, and when she returned, she was overjoyed to find that beautiful new cabinets had been installed in her kitchen. A few days later, a neighbor came over to visit and mentioned, "We were sure glad that the fire your husband had while you were gone was confined to the kitchen, and that he was able to clean up the mess before you got back!"

Nancy knelt in the confessional and said, "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned." "What is it, child?" "Father, I have committed the sin of vanity. Twice a day I gaze at myself in the mirror and tell myself how beautiful I am." The priest turned, took a good look at her, and said, "Nancy, I have good news. That isn't a sin - it's only a mistake.

A drummer got bored with his instrument and decided to take up the accordion instead. Walking into a music shop, he spotted one he liked and asked the shopkeeper, "how much is that accordion by the wall?" The shopkeeper looked at him and said, "You're a drummer, aren't you?" "Yes, how did you know?" he said. "That's the radiator."
