Stupid 



I wouldn't say he's stupid, but..

- He's depriving a village somewhere of an idiot.

- He puts a bucket under the pipe when there's a gas leak.

- He has an intellect that is rivaled only by eggplants.

- We have to make introductions around the breakfast table every morning.

- He stayed up all last night studying for his blood test.

- He sure makes my dog look smart!

- He studied all weekend for a urine test.

- He can't convert 0 feet to meters.

- He was supposed to try out for a part in 'Dumb and Dumber' but forgot to show up.

- He still checks the inside of his hands to see if "it" really will cause hair to grow!!

- When my parents said they'd send him abroad, he asked how old she was.

- But he had a battle of wits with a doorknob and lost.

- He got drunk, walked into the wall four times and said "Shit, I'm bricked in!"

- He stole a free cookie!

- He couldn't count his testicles and come up with the same number twice!

- It takes him an hour and a half to watch "60 Minutes".

- After joining the I.R.A. and being told to blow up a bus, he burnt his lips on the exhaust pipe.

- He saw a sign that said "wet floor"... so he did.

- When his mum said to take butter out from the fridge, he took the butter outdoors!

- I've seen bread dough with more intelligence.

- When they tested his I.Q., the score began with Minus.

- When they were handing out brains, he couldn't even find the line.

- But if you gave him a penny for his thoughts, you'd get change back.

- He thinks a woman with crabs is a seafood delicacy.

- If he had one more IQ he'd be a potted plant.

- He had just learned to count to 21 when he got arrested for indecent exposure.

- Last night, when I turned of the lights he wrote a letter to God, asking him why he didn't pay his electric bill.

- He couldn't empty water from a boot if the instructions were written on the heel.

- He's trying to teach "sit up & beg" to his pet rock.

A woman is walking down the street carrying a small box with holes punched in the top. "What's in that box?" a neighbor asks. "A cat," the woman says. "What for?" "I've been dreaming about mice at night, and I'm scared. The cat is to catch them." "But the mice you dream about are imaginary," her neighbor says. The woman turns to her friend and whispers, "So is the cat. I couldn't afford thecat foodand the vet bills for a real one."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Jeffrey Scott, 32, (The "black eye" is mascara, that she applied pre-arrest, just in case the cops didn't hurt real good.) Occupier burglared furniture The 32-year-old “Occupy Pensacola” protester was arrested yesterday on felony burglary and larceny charges for robbing a neighbor’s home of furniture, that he used at the protest group’s encampment outside City Hall. Scott was nabbed shortly after victim Ned English called police to report the theft of a couch, a recliner, four wicker chairs, and four couch cushions from his home, according to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office report. The deputies had already noticed those items at the protest group’s encampment outside City Hall. When questioned by a deputy, Scott stated, “Yes, I took the furniture. I was going to give it back some day, but haven’t gotten around to it.” Scott, investigators noted, admitted entering English’s home through a rear window, taking the furniture, and using some of the stolen items.” Scott, pictured in the above mug shot, is being held in lieu of $20,000 bond in the county jail. Arrest records list the Virginia native's occupation as "nutritional aid." --------- His buddy, the "Praying Occupier", whose arrest has been featured on countless blogs, turned out to be the nut, who was arrested in Indiana last month for laying face up on a blanket “with his entire genitals showing.” With him officers had found the book “Gay Power,” a “Kroger bottle of extra virgin olive oil,” two cans of Miller beer, and Marlboro cigarettes. He is wanted for jumping bail and failing to appear in court. Do these people think the Bonehead Awards are a dating site?
Tech Support Pits: From: Minka Re: Browser Font Dear Webby, I noticed that you can set the fonts in the browser. What is the best fon? Minka Dear Minka That depends on what you use your browser for. If you are just shopping, researching, goofing around, etc, then Arial is a good font. If you have a small monitor but good eyes, then you can use Tunga. With that you can zoom down smaller than with Arial and still have good, readable text. If you use the broser to test and check your own work, set it to Comix or something silly like that. It will show you instantly, if you forgot to specify any particular font in your work. That happens to everybody, me included. You might want to turn off a font color, but go a step too far and also turn of the font face setting. An obviously goofy font will make that very visible. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Alf for this one: We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the special was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99. "Sounds good," my wife said. "But I don't want the eggs." "Then I'll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents because you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her. "You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" my wife asked incredulously. "I'll take the special." "How do you want your eggs?" "Raw and in the shell," my wife replied. She took the eggs home.

A small town Doctor was famous in the area for always catching large fish. One day while he was on one of his frequent fishing trips he got a call that a woman at a neighboring farm was giving birth. He rushed to her aid and delivered a healthy baby boy. The farmer had nothing to weigh the baby with so the Doctor used his fishing scales. The baby weighed 22 lbs 10 oz.

Have you ever noticed that good jokes always come back to you ? This one came back via Kristine: While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered that a tall boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 40 years ago. Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was too old to have been my classmate. After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended the local high school. "Yes," he replied. "When did you graduate?" I asked. He answered, "In 1957." "Why, you were in my class!" I exclaimed. He looked at me closely and then asked, "What did you teach?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Kevin Daly, 22, Man Wearing “I'm Not An Alcoholic” T-Shirt Arrested for Drunk Driving A New York motorist wearing an “I'm Not An Alcoholic, I'm A Drunk” t-shirt was arrested early today for drunk driving after he crashed into a police car. Kevin Daly, 22, was nabbed after plowing his 2000 Saturn into a police vehicle on County Road 83 in Suffolk County. A cop in the cruiser was not seriously injured in the 1:45 AM crash. Daly, pictured in the mug shot on top, is not the first drunk driver to get a bonehead award for wearing the “I’m Not An Alcoholic” message t-shirt while driving drunk. In mid-2007, Amanda Lynn Bailey, 41, got a Bonehead Award for getting busted for DUI by Florida cops wearing the same distinctive black garment.

While I was preaching in a church in Mississippi, the pastor announced that their prison quartet would be singing the following evening. I wasn't aware there was a prison in the vicinity and I looked forward to hearing them. The next evening, I was puzzled when four members of the church approached the stage. Then the pastor introduced them. "This is our prison quartet," he said, "behind a few bars and always looking for the key."

freezing, and the sund did not come through the clouds,
by mid afternoon the cold, but very dry wind had evaporated
it all. If ithad been the sun, it would have remained in the

"Well, does he go in for unnatural connubial practices?" "Shure now, he plays the flute, but I don't think he knows anything about the connubial." Now desperate, the solicitor pushed on. "What I'm trying to find out are what grounds you have." "Bless ye, sor. We live in a flat -- not even a window box, let alone grounds."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Erica Wilson, 21, and Jesse Brooks, 32 Drunk again and out of control A Tennessee woman who said she wanted a relationship and did not want to be just “a booty call”--allegedly stabbed a male suitor Tuesday night after he became irate when she put the brakes on his attempts to “touch her suggestively,” police report. By the way, the two are first cousins. Erica Wilson, 21, and Jesse Brooks, 32, were arrested and charged with aggravated domestic assault following a brawl in Brooks’s home in Rogersville. The combatants are pictured in the above mug shots. Wilson told a sheriff’s deputy that she and Brooks had “gotten into an argument about the status” of their relationship. It was during the argument, Wilson reported, that Brooks “began to touch her suggestively and stated that ‘he wanted her.’” In response, Wilson told her cousin that she “wanted a relationship and did not want to be 'A Booty Call,'” according to a Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office report. The latter comment allegedly infuriated Brooks, who began cursing at Wilson, and then allegedly knocked her to the kitchen floor with a flurry of punches. Fighting back, Wilson grabbed a pair of scissors and slashed away at her cousin’s face, neck, arms, and back. An investigator noted that Wilson and Brooks, who smelled of booze, admitted to consuming significant amounts of Everclear grain alcohol. Since a “primary aggressor” could not be determined, both cousins were arrested. Wilson, a Taco Bell employee, bonded out of jail yesterday after posting $4000 bond. Her cousin remains locked up in the county jail in lieu of $4000 bond. Both are set to be arraigned in Sessions Court later this month.
Tech Support Pits: From Kristine Re: Invisible links Dear Webby, I finally realized that not having a web page is worse than not being in the phone book, it's like having no phone. Making a business card style page was no big deal, I just saved my resume as HTML and uploaded it. That was so easy that my dumb sister's chihuahua could have done it. I made a bunch more pages and now I want some invisible links to those from the front entrance page, some links that only work if somebody has been told where they are hidden and wipes their mouse over them to see them. I know the colors for the background, text and links are set in the line, but that is for the entire page. If I set the link color to the page color, then ALL the links become invisible. How do I get around that? Kristine Dear Kristine use a paint program and capture a little block or bar of page background. Save that as link.gif. Then use that picture instead of the link text. For example: (Delete the periods after the "<", that is just so that the example code shows instead of it being a command) <.a href="page22.html"><.img src="link.gif" border="0"><./a> And that's it. When you want to allow somebody to view page 22, then you just tell them to wipe their mouse over the spot where you got that little block hidden, and click on it when it becomes visible. If you know how to make pictures with transparent background, then you can make one with writing in page background color on transparent background, and even spell out the name of the link. The writing will be invisible until you wipe a mouse over that spot on the page, but it will become visible then, because the selecting inverts the colors. You COULD accomplish the same with styles and a whole bunch of code, but why bother, when you can fake it with a tiny picture? Have FUN! DearWebby

"So, what's the matter? I thought you just got back from a nice relaxing fishing trip with your husband." "Oh, everything went wrong: First he said I talked so loud I would scare the fish. Then he said I was using the wrong bait; and then that I was reeling in too soon.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cardboard Fabric Liners For Storage Use the inner cardboard liners from bolts of fabrics to store your fabric. Stores will give them to you if you ask. Cut them in half and use them to wrap individual yardages around and store, upright, in those legal-sized cardboard boxes you get from office supply stores. You have only to glance at the top of the box to see what fabric you have in storage and each piece of fabric is the same size and standing straight up in the box.

The Old Gas Station The service station trade was slow. The owner sat around, With sharpened knife and cedar stick Piled shavings on the ground. No modern facilities had they, The log across the rill Led to a shack, marked His and Hers That sat against the hill. "Where is the ladies restroom, sir?" The owner leaning back, Said not a word but whittled on, And nodded toward the shack. With quickened step she entered there But only stayed a minute Until she screamed, just like a snake Or spider might be in it. With startled look and beet red face She bounded through the door, And headed quickly for the car -- Just like three gals before. She missed the foot log -- jumped the stream, The owner gave a shout, As her pantyhose, down at her knees Caught on a sassafras sprout. She tripped and fell -- got up, and then in obvious disgust, Ran to the car, stepped on the gas, And faded in the dust. Of course we all desired to know What made the gals all do The things they did, and then we found The whittling owner knew. A speaking system he'd devised To make the thing complete, He tied a speaker on the wall Beneath the toilet seat. He'd wait until the gals got set, And then the devilish guy Would stop his whittling long enough To speak into the mike. And as she sat, a voice below Struck terror, fright and fear, "Will you please use the other hole? We're painting under here."

Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, November 16

On today's walk I sure would have appreciated a bit of 
Gullible Warming. Walking against an icy wind coming 
up from Montana was not comfortable at all. I was seriously
considering checking into the cost of one of those ski masks
worn by bank robbers. 

What is funny, I spent 30 years in the arctic, rode a few 
thousand miles on dog sleds, but never wore one of those
face masks. 
Maybe I should again stop trimming my beard and mustache?

Thanks to Sandie for sending this: Dearest Redneck Daughter, I'm writing this slow because I know you can't read fast. We don't live where we did when you left home. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 miles of your home, so we moved. I won't be able to send you the address because the last family that lived here took the house numbers when they moved so they wouldn't have to change their address. This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine. I'm not too sure about it. I put a load of clothes in and pulled the chain. We haven't seen them since. The weather isn't bad here. It only rained twice last week; the first time for three days and the second time for four days. About that coat you wanted me to send; your Uncle Billy Bob said it would be too heavy to send in the mail with the buttons on, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets. Bubba locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were really worried and hot because it took him two hours to get me and your father out. Your sister had a baby this morning, but I haven't found out what it is yet so I don't know if you are an aunt or uncle. The baby looks just like your brother. Uncle Bobby Ray fell into a whiskey vat last week. Some men tried to pull him out but he fought them off and drowned. We had him cremated, he burned for three days. Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pickup truck. Butch was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. Your other two friends were in the back. They drowned because they couldn't get the tailgate down. There isn't much more news at this time. Nothing much out of the normal has happened. Your Favorite Aunt, Mom

He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend. The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring. The man said, 'No, I'd like to see something more special.' At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over. 'Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000 the jeweler said. The lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. The old man seeing this said, 'We'll take it.' The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the man stated, 'by check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I'll pick the ring up Monday afternoon.' On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the old man and said 'There's no money in that account.' 'I know,' said the old man, 'But let me tell you about MY GREAT WEEKEND!'

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Ashley Sedalia Haithcock, 26 in Salisbury, NC Drunk again and out of control ROCKWELL — An intoxicated China Grove woman broke into a Rockwell home Friday night, raided a cookie jar and fell asleep in the homeowner’s bed, authorities say. A Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report said Martha Birtch called the authorities when she found 26-year-old Ashley Sedalia Haithcock in her bed at 2005 Green Field Lane at about 10 p.m. The report said Birtch noticed the sliding glass door was open and a cookie jar inside the home was broken. When Birtch walked inside, she heard a woman’s voice and found Haithcock in her bed, under the covers. Haithcock, 328 Maple Ridge Circle, had gone missing about 7:30 p.m. when her grandfather Arnold called 911. Arnold told officers that Haithcock had been staying with him for the weekend, but got upset Friday night when he prohibited her from drinking. Arnold said he found her drinking wine in the home and said she has a drinking problem, the report said. Authorities said Haithcock disappeared from the 104 Sage Lane home after becoming upset with her grandfather. Deputies could not find the woman and calls to her cell phone went unanswered. As officers traveled to the Birtches’ residence to take Haithcock into custody, the woman became aggressive and began arguing with Birtch and her daughter.The report said Birtch’s daughter was assaulted by Haithcock in the incident. After being taken into custody, Haithcock continued being uncooperative, the report said, and kicked three deputies as they attempted to speak with her. She was charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering, misdemeanor simple assault, misdemeanor assault on a law enforcement officer and misdemeanor injury to personal property. Haithcock was given a $10,000 bond and was in jail on Monday.

An elderly Italian man asked the local priest to hear his confession. "Father, during World War II a beautiful woman knocked on my door and asked me to hide her from the Germans. I hid her in my attic." The priest replied: "That was a wonderful thing you did, my son, and you have no need to confess." "It's worse, Father. I was weak and told her she must repay me with her sexual favours." "You were both in great danger and would have suffered terribly if the Germans had found her. Heaven, in its wisdom and mercy, will balance the good and evil, and judge you kindly. You are forgiven." "Thank you, Father. That's a great load off my mind. But I have one more question." "And what is that?" "Should I tell her the war is over?"

Thanks to David for this one: An older Jewish gentleman was on the operating table awaiting surgery and he insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. As he was about to get the anesthesia he asked to speak to his son. "Yes, Dad, what is it?" "Don't be nervous, son; do your best and just remember, if it doesn't go well, if something happens to me ... your mother is going to come and live with you and your wife."

Stop FireFox from restoring a bad set of tabs

Good Morning,  !
Today is Tuesday, November 15

Interesting tidbit from the news:
"Harvard protesters set up their tent city a week after a 
student walkout of Economics 10, an undergraduate 
course taught by Professor Gregory Mankiw, a former 
presidential economic adviser."

Apparenty the kids, who know and understand it all, 
didn't like getting hit with the truth by somebody, 
who had worked all his life, and probably was a 
Dirty Capitalist Pig, just like their parents.

It seems to be a tradition, that teens firmly believe that
their parents are not clued in and don't know anything.
Actually, I have seen even pre-teens show that kind
of behavior and announcing during a temper tantrum, 
that they will stay at the candy counter until they get 
what they want. 

Last time I observed that, I asked the mother if she had
behaved like that too, when she was a silly little brat.
She admitted, that she did, once. So I asked her what 
happend. "My Ma whaled the tar outa me, and when I 
screamed like a stuck pig, everybody in the store laughed,
and some guy offered his gloves to my Ma."

I did have a glove, that I had picked up on the path and stuck
onto a fence post for three days, and adopted, when nobody
claimed it, in my jacket. It was a big, heavy work glove.
When I handed it to the mother, the silly brat got the hint
and got really quiet, really suddenly.

Tech Support Pits: From JJS Re: FireFox restores to crashing Dear Webby Was having trouble opening Internet explorer and could not open Firefox . Called my Internet provider and they had me reset IE thru the control panel ( Internet options ) and IE works fine now but still cannot open Firefox. When try to open get a message that says it has crashed. Searching the net tells me to open Firefox and then go to help and run it in safe mode to reset. It will not stay open to click on help. Any suggestions ?? Have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox more than once with no help. Have a desktop and two laptops. Laptops work fine but desk top is the problem. Desktop is Win XP and laptops are Win 7 . Thanks and always look forward to your news letters. Hope your health is improving ! JJS Dear JJS Sounds like some virus does not want you to browse and download any anti-virus stuff, that could kill it. Get ready to paste about:config into the address bar, open Firefox and immediately paste that into the address bar and hit ENTER Ignore the goofy warning about voiding the warranty. That is an old April Fools Joke. You will see another address bar lower down, called FILTER. Paste into that one: browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash It will show browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash default boolean true Doubleclick on the true to make it toggle to false That will change the default from restoring the previously open tabs to making a clean start. If you have multiple users, you should use that method anyway, to prevent other people from automatically restoring into YOUR signed in Gmail session, if you wander off during a power failure, and they get to the computer before you.

My cousin owns a business in Miami, a furniture store. I convinced him that he needed to take a trip to Italy to visit a manufacturer and check out the merchandise himself. And maybe he could meet an available young Italian women. As he was checking into a hotel he struck up an acquaintance with a beautiful young lady. She only spoke Italian and he only spoke English--neither understood a word the other spoke. So he took out a pencil and a notebook and drew a picture of a taxi. She smiled, nodded her head and they went for a ride in the park. Later, he drew a picture of a table in a restaurant with a question mark and she nodded. So they went to dinner. After dinner he sketched two dancers and she was delighted. They went to several nightclubs, drank champagne, danced and had a glorious evening. It had gotten quite late when she motioned for the pencil and drew a picture of a four-poster bed. He was dumbfounded. To this day he says that he's never been able to understand how she knew he was in the furniture business.

Two cowboys from Texas walk into a roadhouse to wash the trail dust from their throats. They stand at the bar, drinking a beer and talking about the current cattle prices. Suddenly a woman at a nearby table, who is eating a sandwich, begins to cough and choke. After a minute or so, it becomes apparent that she is in real distress. One of the cowboys looks at her and says, "Kin ya swaller?" The woman shakes her head no. "Kin ya breathe?" The woman begins to turn blue and shakes her head. The cowboy walks over to the woman, lifts up the back of her dress, yanks down her panties and slowly runs his tongue from the back of her thigh up to the small of her back. The woman is so shocked that she has a violent spasm and the obstruction flies out of her mouth. As she begins to breathe normally again, the cowboy walks slowly back to the bar and takes a drink from his beer. His partner says, "Ya know, I'd heard of that there Hind Lick maneuver, but I ain't never seen nobody do it before!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Ryan McKenzie, 45, in Broward, FL on stretcher police "boat" in the background Man jumps into New River in failed bid to flee authorities The New River once again Wednesday proved a near-deadly draw for a desperate defendant. Ryan McKenzie, 45, who was in a crowded courtroom for a hearing on previous drug charges, overheard a Border Patrol agent asking about him. Not in custody, the Hollywood man slipped from the room, dashed out of the courthouse and jumped into the New River in an attempt to escape. The move nearly cost him his life. He "appeared in distress and possibly was going to drown," Fort Lauderdale police spokesman Detective Travis Mandell said. "He was able to swim across the river, but then couldn't get out and was showing signs of distress," Mandell said. Police boats and Broward sheriff's deputies arrived. Police officer Rick Rhodes jumped in the water and attached ropes on McKenzie, to winch him onto one of the boats and to safety. He was taken to the hospital for evaluation and is expected to be released into the custody of the Border Patrol. "He's lucky it ended up the way it did," BSO spokeswoman Dani Moschella said. It wasn't the first time the New River, which flows behind the downtown courthouse, has beckoned criminal defendants with the promise of an easy escape. Most of them drowned.
Tech Support Pits: From Rosa Re: Search engine Optimizing Dear Webby My dad's consultant told me that all these Search Engine Optimizers are just con artists who can't make a living with their own web sites, so they are spamming and trying to con money out of people who make money on the web. However, some of those SEOs sound very convincing. I notice that your Mypostcards.com has been at the top of Google for many years and you don't buy ad words and you don't even use meta tags. What's the real scoop? Rosa Dear Rosa Your dad's consultant is very wise. You have to understand that the search engines are not in business to please a bunch of tricksters, but to deliver the content that people are looking for. When you are looking for flower seeds, you want to be shown companies that sell flower seeds, not a bunch of flakey casinos or dating sites. Becaue the search engines are trying hard to deliver the searched for content, they work very hard to defeat the tricksters and keep changing the rules to stay ahead of cheaters. People who spend big money on ad words will often temporarily rise to the top, but usually just very briefly. Don't worry about them. Just focus on having the content that you promise, and you'll stick around near the top. Have FUN! DearWebby

One subscriber considered the term Flea-Bagger to be
"repulsive". Well, it was not me, who coined it, and it is
not going to go away in our lifetime.

Yes, quite likely, to parents and grandparents of the 
"Urban Protest Outdoors Residents", the term may
be less flattering, than they would prefer.

Obama and the Marxists have been quick to label
the Tea Party members as Tea-Baggers, so naturally
the members of the media have been eager to show off
the quick wits, that they sharpened in countless years 
in college, and labelled the opposite end of the spectrum,
the "Urban Protest Outdoors Residents", as Flea-Baggers.

I don't think they meant to refer to the smell of the sidewalk 
denizens, but just wanted to show off their ability, to make
a simple pun.

Just like nobody is going to stop using the term "Tea-Bagger",
don't expect the term "Flea-Bagger" to disappear. 
It is part of the language now.

The term OWS has not caught on, even with the people
involved. "Are you going tatea-baggerilgating at the arena?"
Nah, we promised to go flea-bagging on Main Street."

Have YOU heard anybody say, they are going "OWS'ing
on Main Street" ? Not likely. That's just not cool.

Just to add to the confusion, one reader reported that some
Marxists are trying to twist the name Tea-Bagger to a very
obscure and obsolete use of the word, not at all related to 
the Tea Party or their aganeda. Apparently, if the Marxists
had their way, the term tea-bagger would become a dirty word,
and they are frantically slobbering all kinds of posts about 
that onto the Internet.

Have FUN!

First double click on the message to open it into its own window, then from “Actions” on the Ribbon, choose “Other Actions”, then “View in Browser”. I know you don’t like Outlook, but some of us are required to use it by our employers. It took me 3 years to find this solution; if you publish this, hopefully it will help some others who are less tenacious. Aloha, -mkr Dear Michael If the animation is in email, instead of a folder, then most email programs have the option to view it in your browser. That goes back to the days when Eudora and Pegasus were the only email programs, and Netscape the only browser.

Thanksgiving Day – 2022 

[Something to think about this November 24th]



Winston, come into the dining room, it's time to eat," Julia yelled to her husband. "In a minute, honey, it's a tie score," he answered. Actually Winston wasn't very interested in the traditional holiday football game between Detroit and Washington.

Ever since the government passed the Civility in Sports Statute of 2017, outlawing tackle football for its "unseemly violence" and the "bad example it sets for the rest of the world," Winston was far less of a football fan than he used to be. Two-hand touch wasn't nearly as exciting.

Yet it wasn't the game that Winston was uninterested in. It was more the thought of eating another Tofu Turkey. Even though it was the best type of Veggie Meat available after the government revised the American Anti-Obesity Act of 2018, adding fowl to the list of federally-forbidden foods, (which already included potatoes, cranberry sauce and mince-meat pie), it wasn't anything like real turkey. And ever since the government officially changed the name of "Thanksgiving Day" to "A National Day of Atonement" in 2020 to officially acknowledge the Pilgrims' historically brutal treatment of Native Americans, the holiday had lost a lot of its luster.

Eating in the dining room was also a bit daunting. The unearthly gleam of government-mandated fluorescent light bulbs made the Tofu Turkey look even weirder than it actually was, and the room was always cold. Ever since Congress passed the Power Conservation Act of 2016, mandating all thermostats [which were monitored and controlled by the electric company] be kept at 68 degrees, every room on the north side of the house was barely tolerable throughout the entire winter.

Still, it was good getting together with family. Or at least most of the family. Winston missed his mother, who passed on in October, when she had used up her legal allotment of life-saving medical treatment. He had had many heated conversations with the Regional Health Consortium, spawned when the private insurance market finally went bankrupt, and everyone was forced into the government health care program. And though he demanded she be kept on her treatment, it was a futile effort. "The RHC's resources are limited," explained the government bureaucrat Winston spoke with on the phone. "Your mother received all the benefits to which she was entitled. I'm sorry for your loss."

Ed couldn't make it either. He had forgotten to plug in his electric car last night, the only kind available after the Anti-Fossil Fuel Bill of 2021 outlawed the use of the combustion engines-for everyone but government officials. The fifty mile round trip was about ten miles too far, and Ed didn't want to spend a frosty night on the road somewhere between here and there.

Thankfully, Winston's brother, John, and his wife were flying in. Winston made sure that the dining room chairs had extra cushions for the occasion. No one complained more than John about the pain of sitting down so soon after the government-mandated cavity searches at airports, which severely aggravated his hemorrhoids. Ever since a terrorist successfully smuggled a cavity bomb onto a jetliner, the TSA told Americans the added "inconvenience" was an "absolute necessity" in order to stay "one step ahead of the terrorists." Winston's own body had grown accustomed to such probing ever since the government expanded their scope to just about anywhere a crowd gathered, via Anti-Profiling Act of 2022. That law made it a crime to single out any group or individual for "unequal scrutiny," even when probable cause was involved. Thus, cavity searches at malls, train stations, bus depots, etc., etc., had become almost routine. Almost.

The Supreme Court is reviewing the statute, but most Americans expect a Court composed of six progressives and three conservatives to leave the law intact. "A living Constitution is extremely flexible," said the Court's eldest member, Elena Kagan. " Europe has had laws like this one for years. We should learn from their example," she added.

Winston's thoughts turned to his own children. He got along fairly well with his 12-year-old daughter, Brittany, mostly because she ignored him. Winston had long ago surrendered to the idea that she could text anyone at any time, even during Atonement Dinner. Their only real confrontation had occurred when he limited her to 50,000 texts a month, explaining that was all he could afford. She whined for a week, but got over it.

His 16-year-old son, Jason, was another matter altogether. Perhaps it was the constant bombarding he got in public school that global warming, the bird flu, terrorism or any of a number of other calamities were "just around the corner," but Jason had developed a kind of nihilistic attitude that ranged between simmering surliness and outright hostility. It didn't help that Jason had reported his father to the police for smoking a cigarette in the house, an act made criminal by the Smoking Control Statute of 2018, which outlawed smoking anywhere within 500 feet of another human being. Winston paid the $5,000 fine, which might have been considered excessive before the American dollar became virtually worthless as a result of QE13. The latest round of quantitative easing the federal government initiated was, once again, to "spur economic growth." This time they promised to push unemployment below its years-long rate of 18%, but Winston was not particularly hopeful.

Yet the family had a lot for which to be thankful, Winston thought, before remembering it was a Day of Atonement. At least he had his memories. He felt a twinge of sadness when he realized his children would never know what life was like in the Good Old Days, long before government promises to make life "fair for everyone" realized their full potential. Winston, like so many of his fellow Americans, never realized how much things could change when they didn't happen all at once, but little by little, so people could get used to them.

.....He wondered what might have happened if the public had stood up while there was still time, maybe back around2011, when all the real nonsense began. "Maybe we wouldn't be where we are today if we'd just said, 'Enough is Enough', when we had the chance," he thought.

Maybe so, Winston. Maybe so.

Good Morning,  !
Today is Friday, November 11
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!
A Salut to all Veterans!



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.
         

Have FUN!

Jammed inside the drain was a purple rubber dinosaur, which belonged to my four-year-old son. I painstakingly got all the toilet parts together again, the tank filled, and I flushed it. However, it didn't work any better than before! As I pondered what to do next, my son walked into the bathroom. I pointed to the purple dinosaur I had just rescued and told him that the toilet still wasn't working. "Did you get the green one, too"? he asked.

"Doctor!" said the woman as she loudly bounced into the room, "I want you to tell me very frankly what's wrong with me." He surveyed her from head to foot. "Madam," he said at length, "I've just three things to tell you." "First, you need to lose at least twenty pounds. Second, you should use about one tenth as much rouge and lipstick. And third, I'm an artist - the doctor's office is on the next floor."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Amber Bush, 26, in Moulton,AL Facebook Posts Lead to Arrest Moulton, AL - Lawrence County Sheriff's Investigators say some online detective work led them to a theft arrest this week. According to Sheriff Gene Mitchell, deputies were contacted this week about a set of golf clubs that were lent to a woman, and then never returned to the rightful owner. The woman who allegedly had the clubs - 26 year old Amber Bush - denied having them when investigators spoke with her. However, a short time later, deputies discovered Bush had made several posts on Facebook, claiming she had the clubs and had no intention of returning them. After questioning her again, Bush reportedly confessed to the theft and was arrested on Wednesday. Even though she thought she was too cute for jail, she is being held in the Lawrence County Jail on a $2500 bond since Nov 9. So far, none of her friends and victims has been in a hurry to lend her the required $250 (10% of the bond).
Tech Support Pits: From Ralph Re: Which drivers do I need? Dear Webby, I have an older Sony VAIO PC running XP, SP3 and I am finding devices like my camera, usb memory card reader and an android tablet will not connect to it. Literature on the devices says it will connect with any usb port. I have gone to the Sony esupport site for my computer to downloaded the latest to no avail. I really think they stopped supporting it some time ago judging by the dates on their files. Where can I find the proper drivers for free? I always seem to end up downloading a program that scans my computer but then wants money and a lot of personal information before they will say where the resources actually are. How do I find out if my hardware / firmware will actually support new drivers? Thanks Ralph Dear Ralph The drivers have to be from the peripheral device makers, like the camera, card reader, etc. However, if even a new card reader does not work, I would seriously suspect your USB port to have a hardware or connection problem. I would check to see if the connector to the USB port has come loose from the motherboard. Have FUN! DearWebby

A group of Americans was touring Ireland. One of the women in the group was a real curmudgeon, constantly complaining. The bus seats are uncomfortable. The food is terrible. It´s too hot. It´s too cold. The accommodations are awful. The group arrived at the site of the famous Blarney Stone. "Good luck will be followin´ ya all your days if you kiss the Blarney Stone,"the guide said. "Unfortunately, it´s being cleaned today and so no one will be able to kiss it. Perhaps we can come back tomorrow." "We can´t be here tomorrow," the nasty woman shouted. "We have some other boring tour to go on. So I guess we can´t kiss the stupid stone." "Well now," the guide said, "it is said that if you kiss someone who has kissed the stone, you´ll have the same good fortune." "And I suppose you´ve kissed the stone," the woman scoffed. "No, ma´am," the frustrated guide said, "but I´ve sat on it!!!"

Paddy, the famous Irishman, is driving home after downing a few at the local pub. He turns a corner and much to his horror he sees a tree in the middle of the road. He swerves to avoid it and almost too late realizes that there is yet another tree directly in his path. He swerves again and discovers that his drive home has turned into a slalom course, causing him to veer from side to side to avoid all the trees. Moments later he hears the sound of a police siren and brings his car to a stop. The officer, approaches Paddy's car and asks him what on earth he was doing. Paddy tells his story of the trees in the road when the officer stops him mid sentence and says, "Fer Chris sakes, Paddy, that's yer air freshener! You'll be walking for a year now. Git out!"

Thanks to Marilee for this story: I was taking a shower when my 2-year-old son came into the bathroom. And wrapped himself in toilet paper. Although he made a mess, he looked so adorable, so I ran for my camera and took a few shots. They came out so well that I included one with each of our Christmas cards. Days later, a relative called about the picture, laughing hysterically, and suggesting I take a closer look. Puzzled, I stared at the photo and was shocked to discover that in addition to my son, I had captured my reflection in the mirror -wearing nothing but a camera!

Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, November 10

Had to go to the hospital today for a check-up of my legs.
Apparently the combination of heart attacks and diabetes 
are a cause for concern. So I took that as an excuse for
walking up to the hospital and back and enjoy the sunshine.
Black Diamond is in the valley and the hospital is up on 
the high prairie. 

I probably would have had an easier time when I was 18,
but I did manage without stopping.

Have FUN!

A Newfie came out West and sme friends took him along for curling. As luck would have it, he won an Ice auger for ice fishing. A lot of beer later, when they got kicked out of the curling club, the Newfie wants to go ice fishing right then and there. It's about as foggy outside as it is in his head, after all those beers, but his keen eyes spot some ice not far away. Proudly carrying his nice, shiny, red auger, he stumbles in that direction and decides that he'll give it a go. He carefully takes the safety cover off the point. You may think thasch easchy, but if you hol yourschelf upright with the schilly Ische auger, every time you pull the plaschtik thingamagig off the bottom point, you fffall down! Musch easier if you doing while lying down. Finally he starts drilling. Suddenly, a loud voice booms out at him, "There's no fish in here." The Newfie looks all around him in the fog, but can't see anyone. He decides to ignore the voice and carries on drilling. Again, the voice booms out, "I've told you, there's no fish in here!" He looks up again but there's still no sign of anyone so he returns to his task. "Stop it!" shouts the now very angry sounding voice, "You'd better pack up your stuff and get out of here or there'll be trouble." "Who are you" shouts the drunk guy, "you don't scare me!" There was a big, thundering roar and the the loud voice again: "I'm the manager of this hockey rink, and I'm starting up the Zamboni!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Heather Haygood Mom hid meth on 6 year old son Decatur, AL - Decatur Police have arrested and charged a woman with a series of drug crimes, including possession and manufacturing, and chemical endangerment of a child.

Tech Support Pits: From Thomas Re: Inkjet versus laser reliability Dear Webby, I know from some of your posts that you are in favor of laser printers. My experience in offices with laser printers seemed to be that there was always something going wrong with the laser printers. It seems that there is so much more to go wrong with them then with inkjet printers. I am fearful of buying a laser printer and 6 months later being socked with a huge repair bill. Thomas Dear Thomas In the 80's Laser printers did have frequent problems, especially when they were used for cranking through a case or more of paper per week. I know, I used to be the one fixing them. I remember, when the IBM 3180 was the top of the line laser printer, and I was in good enough shape, that I could carry them alone down and up steep and long stairs. However, Lasers have come a long way in the last 25-30 years, and the cute secretaries, who abused them then, are grandmothers and great-grandmothers now. I am using a DELL 1320c color laser, and have for 3-4 years. All I ever do for it is stuff another ream of paper into it, and occasionally change toner cartridges. As long as you stay away from HP, Lasers are quite reliable nowadays. Since with a Laser you get into the Business Class, you get much better quality than at the bargain consumer level. Also keep in mind, withlasers, there is nothing to dry up or leak. They work with dry powder. However, when mine is five years old, I will seriously consider opening it and see if it needs cleaning and lubricating. Have FUN! DearWebby

Pat and Mike were once very good friends. One day when they were still on speaking terms, Pat went over to Mike's house to visit, but when he got there, Mike was out. Mike's wife was holding the ferociously fighting baby who had different plans, and trying to put up curtains at the same time. "Pat," she said, "I'm glad you came. Would you mind holding the squirming nuisance while I finish the curtains?" A few minutes later, Pat came in and said to Mike, "How ya doin, Mike?" Said Mike, "I'm holding my own". That's when the battle started.

To tell the weather, go to your back door and look for the dog.
If the dog is at the door and he is wet, it's probably raining.

But if the dog is standing there really soaking wet,
it is probably raining really hard.

If the dog's fur looks like it's been rubbed the wrong way,
it's probably windy.

If the dog has snow on his back,
it's probably snowing.

Of course, to be able to tell the weather like this,
you have to leave the dog outside all the time,
especially if you expect bad weather.

Time to pick on Iran again?
After it was quite OK, that Pakistan sold technology and
centrifuges, and pardoned the people doing that, they
make a big fuss about Iran. 

Sure, Iran is led by a bunch of barbarians, and excpet for
their friend Obamanov, nobody is in a rush to forgive them
for taking over the US embassy and university, however, 
they are not stupid enough to actually USE nuclear weapons.

Even though the US would let them get away with it, Israel
won't. And Saudi Arabia would quite cheerfully participate
in bombing them back to the stone age. After all, they don't 
have that far to go. 

Seems to me, the media just needs something to write about, 
while the Flea-Baggers visit their parent's home for a shower
and to warm up.

Thanks to Chris for this one: There's nothing worse than a snotty doctor's receptionist who insists you tell her what is wrong in a room full of other patients. I know you all have experienced this, and here's the way one old guy handled it. An 86-year-old man walked into a crowded doctor's office. As he approached the desk, the receptionist said, "Yes sir, what are you seeing the doctor for today?" There's something wrong with my dick," he replied. The receptionist became irritated and said, "You shouldn't come into a crowded office and say things like that." "Why not? You asked me what was wrong and I told you," he said. The receptionist replied, "You've obviously caused some embarrassment in this room full of people. You should have said there is something wrong with your ear or something and then discussed the problem further with the doctor in private." The man walked out, waited several minutes and then reentered. The receptionist smiled smugly and asked, "Yes?" There's something wrong with my ear," he stated. The receptionist nodded approvingly and smiled, knowing he had taken her advice. "And what is wrong with your ear, Sir?" "I can't piss out of it," the man replied. The doctor's office erupted in howls of laughter. ---------- The receptionist at my doctor is the opposite. She is very cute, but extremely shy. If I was not so good at lip-reading, I could not understand her. Or maybe she is whispering, so that I look at her face? '-)

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Christine Murgueytio, 30, Ft Myers, FL Teacher accused of DUI crash in school parking lot LEE COUNTY - Florida A Lee County teacher is accused of driving under the influence, AGAIN, and deputies say she crashed into another car in her school's parking lot. Deputies say on Thursday morning, the Dunbar Middle School, school resource officer called to report a minor crash that happened in the parking lot. The crash involved teacher Christine Murgueytio's white Kia and a parked car. The SRO told deputies that Murgueytio might have been impaired because an eyewitness had said that she was stumbling and that her speech was "thick tongued." When deputies arrived and spoke the teacher, she was asked if she had been drinking or taking any drugs. According to the arrest report, she replied that she had only taken one Ambien Wednesday night. When asked to take a field sobriety test, she agreed but asked to do so in the back of the parking lot so that her coworkers and students would not see it happening. Seems she expected to fall on her snout. Four field sobriety tests were conducted, all of which she failed. Based on the results of those tests, she was placed in custody and asked to give a breath sample. And as the deputy was gathering her things from her car, according to the arrest report, he found two beer cans in her lunch box next to some uneaten plums. Murgueytio also agreed to give a urine sample, which was then placed into evidence. She was then taken to the Lee County Jail, but has since been released on bond. Murgueytio is on PAID administrative leave with the School District, pending the results of their own investigation. ----------------------- This is her third DUI while a teacher in that county, and her second Bonehead Award.
Tech Support Pits: From Sue Re: Calculator Dear Webby, I need a good calculator. What do you recommend? Sue Dear Sue Hit START, RUN and type calc Hit Enter. You can set it simple or scientific. It will remember your choice. You can also do a search for calc.exe, and make a desktop shortcut to it. If you have TweakUI, then you also have PoweCalc. It can graph equations and does a bunch of unit conversions. For more versatility, use a SpreadSheet like Open Office CALC or Quattro or Excel. Spreadsheets are easy to use and you can calculate anything. The biggest advantage is that the numbers don't scroll into history, but stay right there and can be checked and edited. You can also select a batch of entries, for example the VISA expenses of last year, and with a single click make a graph of them. That lets you quickly spot uncharacteristic entries, and also lets you sit back and muse about trends. Spreadsheets look intimidating to novices, but are actually as easy as falling into bed. Just start playing with them and kicking yourself that you have not started with that much earlier. An often overlooked feature is that you can save a spreadsheet as HTML and upload it to the web, for a friend or co-worker to view and comment, or to continue a collaborative effort. Then there is Launchy You can get it from my ToolBox. Launchy is the most understated program on the net. Officially, it is just for launching programs, that have their icons hidden or lost. For example, to launch Eudora I hit ALT SPACE to open Launchy, E for Eudora ENTER to launch it. I don't even have to take my hands away from the keyboard and hunt for the mouse. If I type a number into Launchy, that turns it into a calculator with a horizontal tape. You can copy your entries or just the results. And when you hit ESC, it is gone. However, ALT SPACE restores the previous entries and result, just in case you hit ESC by accident. Be careful with the SKINS. There are countless skins for it available, and getting just the right skin can be like shopping for a wedding dress. Keep in mind, though, if your Launchy clashes with your nail polish or whatever, you can always pick a different skin. And it is free! Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Bea for this one: For the second time in a row, I was forced to impose on the woman with whom I car pooled to get our children to soccer practice. I phoned and explained that my husband had the car again, so I wouldn't be able to take my turn. A few minutes before she was due to pick up my son, my husband showed up. Since it was too late for me to call and say I could drive after all, I asked my husband to hide the car in the garage and to stay inside. I also explained to my son that he shouldn't mention anything about his father's whereabouts. Unfortunately, my husband forgot and was in front of our house chatting with a friend when my carpool partner arrived. When my son returned from practice, I asked him if she had noticed. "Yes," he replied, "she asked me which of the two men in front of the house was my father. But don't worry. I told her I didn't know."

When I lived in a dorm, one of the favorite intramural sports was water fights. Dousing and bombarding one another with water from squirt guns, glasses, balloons, even wastebaskets. Since each room had a sink, there was endless ammunition. The most frequent target of course was the Resident Assistant. Approaching his room one afternoon, he noticed his door was ajar. Looking up, he saw a pail of water balanced on the door's edge, ready to fall on him. As he took down the pail and emptied it into his sink, he laughed and remarked, "Those crazy guys actually thought they could fool me with that old gag!" About then he realized, that I had loosened the drainpipe beneath the sink and turned the "U" pipe so that it aimed at his crotch.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Miguel Medina, Albany OnStar reported DUI crash ALBANY -- A South Pearl Street man faces aggravated driving while intoxicated charges after his OnStar system lead police to the scene of a car accident early Tuesday, police said.

Moisture may deteriorate the paper, but the laser printed parts will be protected. Unlike items printed with inkjets, laser printed colors will never run. Naturally, you have to use a quality toner from a reputable supplier. If BestBuy or Walmart puts toner cartridges on sale, you can bet that they have been sitting on their shelves for too long. I buy ink and toner from Atlantic Inkjet, and have for about a dozen years. The quality is excellent, shipping is fast, and the price is right. You can protect the paper from wind damage with a clear varnish spray, and unlike inkjet printed paper, with laser, the print quality will not deteriorate from the inside out or from the back..

A group of women were talking together. One woman said, "Our congregation is sometimes down to 30 or 40 on a Sunday." Another said, "That's nothing. Sometimes our congregation is down to six or seven." A maiden lady in her seventies added her bit, "Why, it's so bad in our church on Sundays that when the minister says 'dearly beloved,' it makes me blush."

Either my jeans are getting thinner, not at the waist, but

A young man called his mother and announced excitedly that he had just met the woman of his dreams. Now what should he do? His mother had an idea: "Why don't you send her flowers, and on the card invite her to your apartment for a home cooked meal?" He thought this was a great strategy, and a week later, the woman came to dinner. His mother called the next day to see how things had gone. "I was totally humiliated," he moaned. "She insisted on washing the dishes." "What's wrong with that?" asked his mother. "We hadn't started eating yet."

Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, November 6

Remember to set back your manual clocks. 
It is winter time again.

If you got frantic emails about next Wednesday's Emergency 
System Test, simmer down. It's just the TV version of the 
tornado siren test, and no terrorists are going to time their
nefarious actions for that time. They are probably confused 
by the time change, and probably wondering if they should
side with or against the Flea-Baggers, that seem to get
priority in the media these days.

At first Obama was in favor of the Flea-Baggers, since they
seemed to be the opposite of the Tea-Baggers and Sarah and
Donald and all those nasty people, who are badmouthing him.
However, since they refuse to come up with a Manifesto and
just recycle the "Down with the establishment" slogans of the
60's riots in Chicago, and the French Revolution a bit earlier,
He doesn't know how to deal with them. 

To Obama's credit, until they come up with a consistent goal
or Manifesto, nobody else seems to know how to deal with the 
Flea-Baggers either.

Three guys met in a bar and spent the afternoon drinking and telling stories. Finally, as evening approached, they realized that it was time to go. So they signaled the bartender and told him they wanted to pay their tab. The bartender left and returned, saying the total bar bill was $3.00. "Three dollars," they gasped, and one said, "Surely you must be wrong, it has to be more than $3.00, we've been here all afternoon. We must have had 10 beers apiece." "That's right" said the bartender, "thirty beers at ten cent's apiece, that's $3.00." The men were amazed that the beer was so cheap, but the bartender went on to explain, "You see," he said, "I won the lottery and I wanted to open a bar where folks could come and drink for a reasonable price and have fun. So I use my lottery winnings to subsidize the cost, that's why drinks are so cheap." The men nodded, but one of them asked the bartender, "Those two guys over there, they've been here for two hours and they haven't had anything to drink, what's going on?" "Oh those guys" the bartender replied, "they're Scots, they're waiting for happy hour."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Mary K. Wells, 47 Woman hits hubby with car, and stuff Police said an Oxford woman hit her husband with her car, among other things, at his workplace Monday. According to Iowa City police criminal complaints, 47-year-old Mary K. Wells went to her husband’s workplace in Iowa City at 9:15 p.m. Monday and found him there with an unidentified female client. Police said Wells hit her husband in the face, tore his shirt and hit him in the face with a rubber hose. Police said Wells hit the other woman in the face and pulled her hair. She also threw a quart of oil at her, striking her in the leg, police said. Wells also allegedly drove her car toward another car, missing it by inches, but did not miss her husband, who was standing. Police said Wells’ husband was knocked to the ground but was not injured in the ramming. He had sufferedf bruises and scrapes on the face and neck from the metal fittings on the rubber hose, that she hit him with. Wells brought her two children, 12 and 15 years old, with her and they witnessed the attack, police said. Iowa City Police Sgt. Denise Brotherton said Mary K Wells fled the scene. Johnson County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to her home but were unable to locate her, Brotherton said. A warrant was issued for her arrest and records show she was booked at 7:04 a.m. Wednesday at the jail. It is unclear whether Wells was arrested by another agency or turned herself in to authorities. Wells is being charged with first-degree domestic assault causing injury, a serious misdemeanor; assault, a serious misdemeanor; and child endangerment causing no injury, an aggravated misdemeanor. She is being held at the Johnson County Jail on a $7,500 cash bond.
Tech Support Pits: From Rob Re: Picture File Format Dear Webby, Which picture file format is best for route maps for our orienteering club ? The master map stays the same, but the event maps change every week. Each individual group gets a map that has the only the trails, that they have to take, whith all other trails blanked out. We make six maps per event and each group draws one of the six variations. That gives you an idea of how much the picture gets changed. Over the years it has become so frazzled that it is getting difficult to interprete and we have to keep drawing new master maps. Is there a picture file format that would be more suitable? Thanks Rob Dear Rob Don't use JPG for that, it degrades each time you save it. Use GIF or PNG for that. When you draw the master map, use edged lines. Then cut a fine separation line next to each trail junction. Reduce the colors to 16 and save it as a GIF or PNG. Write-protect that file so that it can not be overwritten and only copied.. For each variation just take a copy off the master and use the flood fill tool to fill unused sections of the trail with the background color. It will hide the trail all the way to the next separation line at the next junction. The edging of the line will still be there for a future filling, but the participants know, that if the trail does not have THEIR color, then they won't find THEIR tokens on that route. GIF pictures don't have the same color depth as JPG, but they are usable on the web and they don't degrade. They also print and fax with sharp and clear edges on even the cheapest printers or fax machines. PNG can show very sharp details, similar to JPG, but does not degrade from saving. Have FUN!

Thanks David!

Now Belgium, which is still trying to get organized, after 
it's government collapsed in 2010, announced it will phase 
out nuclear powerplants. Not right away, but like Germany,
after three to five elections, or like Obama promised, that 
the deficit and debt will be reduced by some future government,
who will hopefully figure those things out, and get yelled at
for trying to pay for today's mistakes.

Because Big Oil paid the media to use Fukushima to scare 
the sheep, it is fashionable among politicians to bitch about
nuclear power plants. Sure, the Fukushima plants were Govt
spec plants, and satisfied politicians a lot more than the 
engineers. However, those old Fukushima plants fared actually 
quite well. 

The engineers pointed out, that it was a really dumb idea 
to rely on long over-land power lines to supply emergency 
power, instead of a few big Diesels in the basement.
They also pointed out, that so close to the ocean, it was 
really stupid to put pools on top of the roof to keep the
half used fuel rods wet, and use power from other,
far away plants, to pump water up there. Why not dig a hole,
and let the ocean keep it filled, instread of using expensive 
pumps made in some politician's riding?

Does that sound familiar? Yes, same crap goes on in 
every country.

They could have stoped procrastinating, and sent the half 
used fuel rods to South Korea or China for re-processing! 
Japan has long ago decided that 1 Billion Dollar a piece 
nuclear bombs are not cost effective, and they haven't got 
a breeder reactor anyway, so why keep the stuff?

Nuclear powerplants are actually quite safe, if done right,
and kept as up-to-date as the oil fired plants. And they
don't mess up the air with soot and ash and make photos
less sharp, than they could be.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Antonio Santiago, 26 Stolen cellphone rings in thief's pocket A Hoboken man was denying knowledge of a stolen cellphone before it rang in his pocket, police said. At 7 a.m. today, a 55-year-old man said his cellphone and charger were stolen while he was asleep at Hoboken Terminal, reports said. He saw the man he believed stole the phone sitting inside McDonalds, 234 Washington St., and told police who reported to the scene, reports said. Antonio Santiago, 26, of Bloomfield Street, told police he did not take the phone, reports said. When police called the victim's cell phone, it rang in Santiago's right coat pocket, reports said. When Santiago pulled out the phone and its charger from his coat, the victim positively identified the items, reports said. A police pat-down revealed that Santiago also had three small, clear plastic bags of suspected marijuana, reports said. Santiago was charged with theft and possession of 50 grams or less of marijuana, reports said.
From the Tech Support Pits: From Jackie Re: more picture background Dear Webby, I was looking through old Humor Letters searching for something and came across some bad advice you gave. You are wrong about the color of a picture backdrop. As any professional knows, it should be white so as to throw more light and even onto the object. Jackie Dear Jackie Digital cameras have become quite affordable. Why don't you save up for one and try it out yourself ? You will find that a white backdrop reduces contrast and makes pictures appear flat and washed out. With digital cameras, and prettier subjects, you can go for a lot more contrast than what they taught you 70 years ago. Also, with a white backdrop you lose control of the lighting. Even if you have proper lighting from slightly above and to the side of the camera, the picture will be even more "dead" than if you had used an in-camera flash. Very unprofessional! In addition to that, an edge bleed to white is considerably wider than an edge bleed to black. Getting rid of a light halo is a time wasting nuisance, whereas a thin, dark edge bleed helps to make the object stand out almost like a drop- shadow and appear much livelier. Have FUN! DearWebby

might work in IE but not in the fast browsers.

Personally, I don't bother. If a site does not work in

SIXTEEN STEPS TO BUILD A CAMPFIRE Southerner Style 1. Split dead limb into fragments and shave one fragment into slivers. 2. Bandage left thumb. 3. Chop other fragments into smaller fragments 4. Bandage left foot. 5. Make structure of slivers (include those embedded in hand) 6. Light Match 7. Light Match 8. Repeat "a Scout is cheerful" and light match. 9. Apply match to slivers, add wood fragments, and blow gently into base of fire. 10. Apply burn ointment to nose. 11. When fire is burning, collect more wood. 12. Upon discovering that fire has gone out while out searching for more wood, soak wood from can labeled 'kerosene'. 13. Treat face and arms for second-degree burns. 14. Re-label can to read 'gasoline'. 15. When fire is burning well, add all remaining firewood. 16. When thunder storm has passed, repeat steps. Arctic Bushman Style 1) Collect the tiny, dry twiglets low on trees and stuff them into an inside pocket half an hour before stopping. 2) Start digging a hole in the snow with enough enthusiasm, so that the dogs will take over and finish. 3) Collect dry branches and dead trees and pile them up in the cleared hole. 4) Warm up the hands by scratching the belly of one of the dogs. 5) Place the thawed and crushed kindling from the inside pocket under the upwind side of the wood pile and use the thawed hand to light it with the lighter. 6) Get the dogs to help dragging a few dead trees close to the fire. 7) Cook supper.. That method has worked fine for me many hundreds of times, when I lived in the arctic bush. The real secret is the warm kindling in the inside pocket. It catches a lot easier than the -40 degree stuff.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Rashawn Mallory, 21, and Ernest Barnett, 22 Armed robbers jailed after they took meatball sub YEADON, Pa. (UPI) -- Police in Pennsylvania said they arrested a group of armed robbers accused of stealing a 13-year-old's $5.50 meatball sub. Investigators said the teenager was walking home from the deli with his sandwich Saturday evening in Yeadon when two men, identified as Rashawn Mallory, 21, and Ernest Barnett, 22, exited a black Ford Expedition, brandished a black revolver and ordered the victim not to move, The Delaware County Daily Times reported Wednesday. Police said the two men searched the boy and left with his sandwich when they found nothing of value. However, they left the teenager's cellphone, which he used to call police and give descriptions of the suspects and their vehicle. Police located the vehicle, where the sandwich was found still in the wrapper. Mallory and Barnett were charged with robbery, theft, receiving stolen property, recklessly endangering another person and simple assault. Mallory was also charged with making terroristic threats and firearms not to be carried without a license. Two other men in the vehicle with the suspects, Antray Graves Jr., 20, and Rainey Smith, 21, were charged with criminal conspiracy to commit robbery theft, and receiving stolen property.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Your Leaves As Winter Mulch Have you mulched your leaves yet? After spending years raking up those fall leaves, I got pretty tired of having a second set of leaves fall from the Oak trees. I decided to make short work of the job by using my mulch mower and ran the mower over the leaves, which mulched them all and enriched my lawn happily at the same time. The lawn may not be as neat and tidy, but it sure will be happy having all that extra fertilizer on it, and it will be even happier next spring, and so too will you! Go mulch those leaves!

A travel agent looked up from his desk to see an old lady and an old gentleman peering in the shop window at the posters showing the glamorous destinations around the world. The agent had had a good week and the couple looking in the window gave him a rare feeling of generosity. He called them into his shop: "I know that on your pension you could never hope to have a holiday, so I am sending you off to a fabulous resort at my expense, and I won't take no for an answer". He took them inside and asked his secretary to write two flight tickets and book a room in a five star hotel. They, as can be expected, gladly accepted, and were off! About a month later the little old lady came in to his shop. "And how did you like your holiday?" he asked eagerly. "The flight was exciting and the room was lovely," she said. "I've come to thank you. But, one thing puzzled me. Who was that old guy I had to share the room with?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Girl, 9, Facing Four Felonies For Wild School Bus Tantrum, Battering Sheriff's Deputy A nine-year-old Florida girl is facing four felony charges after she allegedly threw a tantrum yesterday on a school bus, spit on the driver, threw rocks at the bus, and tossed a patio chair at a cop, who she warned, “I will fuckin kill you!” The child, a fourth grader at the Royal Palm School in Fort Myers, was traveling home when the driver told her to stop eating candy on the bus. The girl “became very upset” and started yelling obscenities at driver Robert Middleton, according to a Lee County Sheriff’s Office report. After threatening to strike other children on the bus, the girl jumped off the bus (but not before spitting on Middleton). She then allegedly started throwing pieces of asphalt at the bus. When a sheriff’s deputy arrived on the scene and ordered the child to stop throwing the asphalt, she replied, “Fuck you! Fuck you! Shut the fuck up. I will fuckin kill you.” After warning that she would hurt him, the child “picked up an aluminum patio chair and threw it at me,” reported a deputy. After blocking the chair with his arm, the cop restrained the child, who then “attempted to bite my arm and said, ‘I am going to kill you, get off of me!” The pint-sized terror was charged with battery on a public school employee, resisting arrest with violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, and throwing a deadly missile into an occupied vehicle. The girl was released into her parents's custody last night and placed on home detention for 21 days.
From the Tech Support Pits: From Fred Re: Faxing without a phone number Dear Webby If we can "fax" from our computer, why can't we "fax" without a "phone number" on our end? There must be a way to "fax" from computer to computer, where e-mail isn't viable. Is it just a case of the technology is out there, but the phone companies are holding us hostage? I currently make hard copies and have a friend with a "fax" line send for me. Mary In NW Georgia, USA Dear Mary If both the sender and the recipient have Internet, then you can just send email and attach any document or picture. If the recipient does not have Internet, just a fax machine, then you have to send to that fax machine. You can use the fax modem, that is built into the motherboard on your computer, and send the fax down the regular phone line. It uses the same phone line, that you got connected for dial-up to use on those days, when the DSL does not work, or not work well. There are many fax programs, that you can choose from, most of them are free. With them you just pay for the long distance charges. There are others, that have a monthly fee, that use the Internet to get as close as possible to the recipient, and then fax from there, if possible at local rates. If you just send half a dozen faxes per year, just pay for he long distance. If you do fax a lot, use one of the monthly plans, that use the Internet to get close, and then fax locally. You have to get down from the cloud and into the phone network somehow. Those plans also work if you don't have a phone connection at all, just Internet via cable or fiber. However, most of those have a phone socket, to connect your house phone system to the modem. Then you can connect from the house phone system to the dial-up modem socket on your computer. Have FUN!

Good Morning,  !

Remember that bonehead award a couple of days ago, for a 
drunk, half naked Ohio mother of three kids, who led police 
on a high speed chase and had to be stopped with spikes?

She got on tape with a half hour vile abuse rant against the 
arresting officer. She called him “nigger” at least 15 times, 
according to the NSFW clip. She also repeatedly called the cop 
a “bitch” and said he was “stupid as fuck.” All at very high
volume and a hate-filled voice. 

She had been driving drunk on a suspended license,
and was actually wearing an ankle bracelet that monitors 
alcohol intake, when she was nabbed by Bainbridge cops.
Her rap sheet includes two prior DUI collars.

Sounds like punishment for previous incidents was not 
sufficient for her to smarten up. It is drunks like her, who
are the reason for "Three times and you are out for life"
laws, that are gradually spreading from California to
other states.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Karen henry, 45 in Palm Coast, Florida Woman Attacks Dad for Not Giving Her Potato Salad PALM COAST, Fla (CBS Tampa) — A Florida woman was arrested after allegedly attacking her father because he wouldn’t give her his potato salad. Flagler County authorities charged Karen Henry with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for the Oct. 22 incident. According to police reports obtained by CBS Tampa, Henry became enraged when her 80-year-old father told her that she could not have his potato salad while he was eating dinner. Karen became very angry that she could not have the potato salad and began throwing and breaking items,” a report obtained by The Daytona Beach News-Journal states. “[She] then grabbed a large kitchen knife and began threatening [her father] with it.” According to the report, the elderly man grabbed a chair to defend himself so he could call authorities. Police say that while they were transporting Henry, she began complaining of abdominal pain. After her treatment at Florida Hospital Flagler, deputies overheard her on the phone asking her father to drop the charges. Another charge of tampering with a victim was added against her. She was then transported to the Flagler County Inmate Facility. She is being held there without bail.
From the Tech Support Pits: From Fred Re: DSL and Fax Dear Webby Can I run a fax machine on the same line as the DSL ? Thanks Fred Dear Fred Certainly! DSL or ADSL is just a very high frequency "fuzz" put onto the voice frequency phone line. Imagine a picture of a sine wave that is a bit fuzzy. The sine wave is still perfectly recognizable, and the fuzz can be cleaned off by the phone or fax machine with the same filter that cleans up the power line hum and static. The DSL filter does the opposite. It dumps the slow, voice and fax frequency stuff, and only passes through the very high frequency "fuzz". To the DSL modem, only the high frequency is usable data, and it sends it on to the computer's newtwork card. The phone or the fax machine don't care what the DSL modem does, and the DSL modem does not see or hear any of the phone stuff. Phones ringing, fax machines beeping or sending is the same to it as static is totally ignored by the DSL modem. The DSL splitter will give you two lines, one to the DSL modem, and one to phones, fax and the phone line modem built into the computer. You can use that phone line modem to dial up the old-fashioned way, when your fancy DSL fails. You do that with the built in, internal modem. That same built in internal modem also allows you to use WinFax or any computer based fax program to "print" to somebody else's fax machine. You pay long distance charges, the same as if you used a stand-alone fax machine, without actually having to buy a fax machine. That uses the phone side of the split phone line. The DSL modem uses the high frequency side of the split phone line. There is no conflict at all. Have FUN! DearWebby

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Amanda Confer, 24 and Randell Peterson, 32 Couple Faces Criminal Raps For Sex On City Bus OCTOBER 25--A Pennsylvania couple is facing an assortment of criminal charges for having sex on a city bus, carnal activity that was captured by the vehicle’s surveillance camera. According to a police criminal complaint, Amanda Confer, 24, boarded the bus on a Friday afternoon in late-August. She was “accompanied by her infant daughter,” a detective reported. Also riding the bus through Montoursville that day were “Pre-release inmates” Randell Peterson and Joshua Schill. The men were part of a work release program that allows inmates to come and go from the county jail at specified times. Investigators allege that Confer and Peterson, 32, sat next to each other in the rear of the bus, with Schill sitting in front of them. Before the illicit action commenced, however, Confer “turned over her infant daughter” to Schill, who apparently served as babysitter/lookout during the subsequent rendezvous. In short order, Confer and Peterson (pictured in the above mug shots) moved from hugging and kissing to oral sex (which was provided by Confer). “After a couple of minutes of oral sex,” Detective Alberto Diaz reported, Confer “lowered her underwear” and, “upon sitting on” Peterson’s lap, “both defendants proceeded to have sexual intercourse for several minutes.” Shortly after the tryst ended, Peterson and Schill exited the bus together, while Confer continued to ride on with her daughter. No humans noticed that day, but since the “aforementioned acts were captured by surveillance equipment,” investigators were able to identify Confer and Peterson as suspects. In an interview late last month with a Lycoming County detective, Confer copped to the bus sex. During a September 30 interview at the county jail, Peterson also confessed to the illegal automotive interlude. Confer and Peterson were charged earlier this month with conspiracy, indecent exposure, open lewdness, and disorderly conduct. They are scheduled for a November 4 preliminary hearing in Magisterial District Court. On her Facebook page, Confer refers to herself as “Randel’s Wifey.” ---------- They should have used a blanket or curtain, so as not to make the video inspector blush!
From the Tech Support Pits: From Manda Re: noise cancelling earphones Dear Webby, I took the advice you gave to Ellen, and raised a ruckus at the computer store. I had already bought a standard monitor, after you sent me to PriceGrabber a few months ago, and still had the print-outs. The monitor I got turned out to be even better than the print-outs, and I am quite happy with it. I feel sorry for all the sheep, who paid good money for the rejects, that were sold as "wide screen". So, since I had a bone to pick with them about something else, I called them a bunch of @#$% Liars and slapped down my print-outs. You made my day, SIR! The sawed off sheep monitors might be OK for Farmville and short emails, but are a useless nuisance for serious work. I am sure glad we got you to protect us from the con artists! Now I have a question about head sets. What is the straight scoop about "noise cancelling earphones"? Thanks Manda Dear Manda In theory, noise cancelling head sets subtract ambient noise electronically from what the microphone picks up. In reality, unless you buy an outrageously priced DJ set, you get a bit of messy leakage through a cross-over resistor in the in-line volume control gadget, and some foam cover on the microphone. Plus fancy wordage in the advertising, of course. Since the in-line volume control usually stops working after a year or less, and needs to get bypassed, you have an excellent opportunity to hear how little effect that cross-over leakage had in eliminating ambient noise. The same goes for the foam cover of the microphone. When it wears out or gets lost, just replace it with a finger fo a knit kid's glove. Chances are, it does a better job than the original foam. When selecting headsets, look for large, comfortable ear pieces, preferably with fine leather or satin covered cups. Foam or velvet will feel uncomfortable a lot quicker. As long as the cups are large and comfortable, you will cheerfully put up with other imperfections, but if they are not comfortable, you will get very critical very quickly. Have FUN! DearWebby

Some Halloween Limericks 

Wanda the witch, on her broom
swept through the town yelling "ZOOM!"
through a perchance of luck
never heard the big truck
and she zoomed on her broom to her doom.


"Gentlemen please, all be seated,
I don't want this to be repeated,
I've gathered you here
to announce, with a tear:
I've never once been trick or treated!"


A Halloween bash in my street
was a night that will never repeat
the spirits that come
were tequila and rum
and I ended up drunk on my feet!


A werewolf was skinny, a freak
with a huge gummy grin he did speak
so, never eat French
coz, as well as the stench
your teeth will fall out in a week!


I'm sorry, I know it's my fault
my Halloween sins I should halt
but the neighbours' kids here
pissed me off for a year
so I laced all their candy with salt!


Dracula wailed to the sky
"My job really sucks" was his cry
"bloody paychecks
and I'm so sick of necks
what I'd like is a nice apple pie!"


An Egyptian prince was a dummy
drank too much, became a rummy
when the grim reaper came
and called out his name
he cried and he wailed for his Mummy!


Yesterday I met a priest
he was sitting enjoying a feast
when I questioned his conscience
he said "stuff and nonsense"
and gave me the sign of the beast.


Folks who hate folks make me grin
they're such lovely people within
we don't need walpurgis
the truth it should urge us
we're all skeletons, covered with skin.


Tricking and treating's a prank
but somebody really should thank
the Gods for the candy
to dentists it's dandy
they laugh all the way to the bank!

Good Morning,  !

Happy Halloween!
Leave some of the candy for the monsters!


OK, here, as promised, is the music suggested by subscribers.
Even the very worst one, if there actually IS a worst one,
is a thousand times better than the moronic screeching produced
by the British "scientists". They got about as close as they did
with their Gullible Warming insanity.

A modest man was in the hospital for a series of test. One of the last tests has left his system upset. Upon making several false alarms to the bathroom he decided the latest was another. But he completely filled his bed up with human waste and was embarrassed beyond anything he could possible face. Losing his presence of mind, he jumped up, gathered up the bed sheets and threw them out the hospital window. A drunkard was walking by the hospital when the sheets landed on him. He started yelling, cussing and swinging his arms which drew the attention of the security guard. The security guard asked, "What's going on here?!?!?" And the drunk replied, "I think I just beat the crap out of a ghost!"

One afternoon a little boy was playing outdoors. He used his mother's broom as a horse and had a wonderful time until it was getting dark. He left the broom on the back porch. His mother was cleaning up the kitchen when she realized that her broom was missing. She asked the little boy about the broom and he told her where it was. She then asked him to please go get it. The little boy informed his mom that he was afraid of the dark and didn't want to go out to get the broom. His mother smiled and said, 'The Lord is out there too, don't be afraid'. The little boy opened the back door a little and said, 'Lord if you're out there, please hand me the broom'.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Erin Holdsworth, 28 in Auburn, Ohio Drunk and topless An Ohio woman appeared in court on Wednesday to answer to charges of leading police on a high-speed chase while allegedly drunk -- and definitely topless. The Daily Mail reports that officers in Auburn Township tried to pull over a car that was being driven erratically. Instead, the driver stepped on the gas as police gave chase at speeds of up to 128mph. Police eventually used spike-strips to blow out the tires, forcing the driver to pull over. And when the driver, 28-year-old Erin Holdsworth, stumbled out of her car with her hands in the air, cops were stunned -- she was wearing nothing more than a g-string, fishnet stockings and tennis shoes. Video shows that when they put her in the back of the squad car, Holdsworth became combative, kicking the glass partition between the seats. She is charged with operating a vehicle impaired (OVI), refusing a blood alcohol test, fleeing and eluding, criminal damage, driving under a suspended license, speeding and reckless operation.
From the Tech Support Pits: From Ellen Re: Wide monitor Dear Webby, I need a new monitor, and don't like the wide ones. The salesman at our local computer store told me, that the "antique" version is no longer available, "not even for old people", and tried to make me look stupid in front of my friends. Somehow I don't think he is right, and remember you saying, that regular monitor are still available. Ellen Dear Ellen Find out when that store is the busiest, then go there and call that lying idiot a #$%& LIAR, in front of everybody. STANDARD, 4:3 monitors are available all over the place. They are not antique, they are STANDARD in the business world. Industry and commerce don't put up with the lies of idiots, and they get exactly what they need. If you go to PriceGrabber, you can get 4:3 monitors for less than what the liars charge for sawed off wide-screen monitors. I use a Lenovo, that I am quite happy with, but I have seen DELL and HP and IBM and SUN monitors, that were just as good. Their profit margins are higher with the sawed off "wide screen" monitors, but if you need a standard monitor for working, insist on getting what you need, not what some lyiing loudmouth tries to con you into getting. Don't let them intimidate you! Have FUN! DearWebby

A schoolteacher injured his back and had to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. It fit under his shirt and was not noticeable at all. On the first day of the term, still with the cast under his shirt, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in school. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, he opened the window as wide as possible and then busied himself with desk work. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he took the desk stapler and stapled the tie to his chest. He had no discipline problems with any of his students that term.

Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, October 30

Recommendations for relaxing tunes are still coming in.
One more day, then I will post the list.

The snow sure is coming down on the mountains. They are
all white now, and it doesn't warm up in daytime. I am still
hoping for a good Chinook, though, to blow away the leaves.

Have FUN!

One day, Gramma sent her grandson, Little Johnny, down to the water hole to get some water for cooking dinner. As he was dipping the bucket in, he saw two big eyes looking back at him. He dropped the bucket and ran all the way back to Gramma's house and into the kitchen. "Well now, where's my bucket and where's my water?" Gramma asked him. A frightened Little Johnny stammered, "I can't get any water from that water hole, Gramma. There's a BIG old alligator down there!" Gramma said, "Now, don't you mind that ole' alligator, Johnny. He's been there for a few years now, and he's never hurt no one. Why, he's probably as scared of you as you are of him." "Well, Gramma," replied Johnny, "if he's as scared of me as I am of him, then that water ain't fit to drink!"

Thanks to Beth for this story: I did my nurse's training at a hospital in Liverpool, England. My fellow students and I had little money for meals, so we ate the awful food provided at the hospital complex. We often took our breaks in the kitchen, and sometimes kindly visitors would give us some of the treats they had brought for patients. One night a woman brought a pork pie to the kitchen and said to me, "Would you eat this up, love?" Delighted at the offer, another student and I devoured every crumb. Soon our benefactor returned, however, and asked, "Is me 'usband's pie 'ot yet, dearie?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Camerin Marie Britton, 25, Stolen Credit Card Used To Send Money To Jailed Boyfriend A Rogers woman was arrested for allegedly using a credit card belonging to a resident of the retirement community where she worked.

From the Tech Support Pits: From Rick Re: Screaming computer Dear Webby, I had left an old computer at the cabin, so that I could use it for downloading pictures from the camera and burning them onto a CD. Wen we got to the cabin and I turned on the computer, instead of the familiar fan noises there was the most godawful screaching and screaming, like a cat was inside it and slowly getting sliced into little pieces by the fans. I turned it off and took the side cover off, but all I saw in there, aside from the circuit boards and drives, were dust bunnies. What wold cause that awful noise? Rick Dear Rick When the frozen machine starts up, the thin film of grease in the fan bearings gets pushed along into micro dunes that look like miniature fish scales under the microcope. Just like any old grease, it retains the stickiness that is intended to keep it on the job, but it loses it's lubricating qualities and creaks like an old outhouse door. The high speed creaking is what you heard and thought was an animal screaming in pain. Naturally that does not prolong the usable lifetime of that fan. Some of the more modern computers and power supplies don't turn on the fans until there is actual need for cooling. On older equipment, you have to either put up with the screaming for a bit, or else wait until the cabin and the computer warm up. The innards of the computer will come up to room temperature faster if you take the side cover off. Have FUN! DearWebby

A man was in the habit of carrying an umbrella wherever he went. Unfortunately, he broke his last good one. Looking at the six useless umbrellas in his umbrella stand, he decided to take them all in and have them repaired. On the bus on the way home, he picked up the umbrella that belonged to the woman sitting next to him, purely out of habit. She immediately cried, "Stop, thief!" and he surrendered the umbrella. Very embarrassed, he quickly got off the bus. The next week he picked up his repaired umbrellas. When he got on the bus with the six umbrellas under his arm, he just so happened to sit next to the very same woman. She gave him an icy stare and said, "Had a good day, huh?" ------------- That reminds me of an umbrella experience I had in Vancouver in the early 70's. It rains a lot in Vancouver, but I was new and was caught downtown in a real downpour. I ducked into the entranceway at Sears to escape the worst. While standing there I was idly reading the list of departments and the floors they were on. "Lost and Found Floor 12" caught my eye. So I went up there and asked if they had found my umbrella. "A black one ?" she asked. "Uh, yeah, a black one." I replied. "Telescoping or Gent?" "Uh, Gent." I figured, a hippie like me would naturally carry a gentleman's straight umbrella, not a weird one that might require readig instructions. The lady behind the counter groaned and left. A minute later she came back with a huge armload of black umbrellas. "Take your pick!" She didn't say anything about trying to find mine, just to take my pick. I did. The second one was perfect. No pinholes, smooth action, no rust specks, fine leather handle. Just as I was about to say something that it might be the right one, the lady told me: "Take a couple of spares. I got truckloads of them back there and hate carrying these back there again." I felt so sorry for her, I took the whole armload that she had dumped onto the counter. That made her smile ! Outside again, I gave a couple to the Hare Krishnas who were chanting in the rain and dancing like old drunks who had not noticed that the music had stopped. Then I spotted a mother with a baby carriage, so I ran after her and gave one to her and one to the kid. I had a great time, until I realized that I had given away ALL of the umbrellas. Back at Sears I told the lady at the Lost and Found the truth, and we had a good laugh about it. During the second armload the rain lessened and stopped and when the sun broke through the clouds, I was stuck with one umbrella. Since I felt silly carrying an umbrella when it didn't rain, I left it on the bus.
