DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Virginia Re: Zoom not working for print Dear Webby, When I zoomed to larger print on this letter and two others tonight, instead of getting the one I was printing the previous one presented itself. I don't know if I worded that correctly , I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. So in order to print it I had to return to the smaller print. What did I do wrong? Thanks for your help, Virginia. Dear Virginia CTRL-Scrollwheel only changes what the monitor shows, like a magnifying glass. It does not edit the page. The printer prints the page as you received it. If you want to print just part of it, for example a tech tip or a joke, highlight that, and hit CTRL P to Print, then checkmark "Selection Only" Have FUN! DearWebby

Planning a weekend of entertaining guests, I made a list of things I needed to do, including taking food out of the freezer and grocery shopping. As it happened, a friend whom I had been promising to take to lunch asked if we could make it that Friday. So, hopping into the car, I taped my "to do" list to the dashboard and went and picked her up. As she settled into the car, her face dropped. "Thanks a lot!" she sulked. Then I glanced at my list and saw the first item: "Take out the Turkey."

Young Jock McTavish from Glasgow went to study at a university in England and was living in the hall of residence. After a week his mother rang him. "How do you get along with the other students, Jock?" she asked. "Well," he replied, "they are terribly noisy people. The one on one side keeps banging his head on the wall. The one on the other side screams all night." "Oh Jock!" said his mother. "How do you manage to put up with such noisy neighbours?" "I don't do anything. I just stand here quietly, playing my bagpipes!" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Uses for Socks Here are some uses for unmatched socks. Make a sock puppet with some sewn on buttons for eyes. Put a sock on your hand and use it as a dust rag. Slip a sock over a yard stick and secure it with a rubber band and to clean under your fridge. Save them for the winter when you need to wear two pairs. thriftyfun.Com ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ One day during cooking class, the teacher, Mrs. Pritchard, was extolling her secrets for preparing perfect sauces. When she ordered us to the stoves to prepare our assignments, she said, "Don't forget to use wooden spoons." As I stirred my sauce, I contemplated the physics behind the mystery of the wooden spoon and decided it must have something to do with heat conduction. I approached Mrs. Pritchard to test my theory. "Why wooden spoons?" I asked. "Because," she replied, "if I have to sit here listening to all you idiots banging metal spoons against metal pots, I'd go nuts and kill half of you." ___________________________________________________ As a roving columnist for a regional agricultural publication, I gather material by traveling with a saddle horse and a pack mule. Because my job is a bit unusual, my writings have attracted a following. Admittedly, my ego soars when folks recognize me and stop to chat. I had things put in their proper perspective, however, one cold day in eastern Montana. My animals and I were loafing along. As a stock truck passed by us, the driver waved, and I waved back. I was sure that he was one of my fans. Minutes later, the truck driver came back and pulled off to the side of the road. "You're that writer fellow, aren't you?" he asked. "That's right," I replied, beaming. "I thought so," he said. "I recognized your mule." ___________________________________________________ A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the subject of marriage counseling came up. "Oh, we'll never need that. My husband and I have a great relationship," the wife explained. "He was a communications major in college and I majored in theater arts. He communicates real well and I just act like I'm listening." __________________________________________________
