Good Morning,  !

Today is Tuesday, July 29.

Today I have the final check-up after the cataract 
operation, and tomorrow I am scheduled for injections 
into my eyeballs, IF health care pays for that, even
though I am 65. If they want $5,000 or a significant 
portion of that, I'll have to pass.
Either way, Thursday to Saturday there most likely
won't be any newsletters.

Have FUN!

Nobody will ever win the Battle of the Sexes. There's just too much fraternizing with the enemy. --- Henry Kissinger (1923 - ) Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation. --- Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

On a Cathay Pacific 747 in Taipei, the following announcement was heard over the cabin PA system: "Ladies and gentlemen, we are overbooked and are offering anyone $1,000 plus a seat on the next flight in exchange for their seat on this flight." After a short pause, the offer was repeated with the amendment that it did not apply to the crew assigned to the flight.

A little boy was roughhousing with his dog. His mother said to him, "Now, Peter, I know you love Wowser, but you're loving him too much. How would you feel if someone huge picked you up and squeezed you so hard you couldn't breathe?" The boy thought a moment and then said, "I guess I'd feel like it was my birthday and Aunt Doreen was here!"

Reported by Walter, the Stonecarver An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Vernett Bader, North Charleston, SC South Carolina, 54, woman who stabbed her roommate for refusing to stop listening to the Eagles Police in South Carolina arrested a North Charleston woman Monday night after she allegedly stabbed her roommate multiple times for refusing to stop playing music by the classic rock band The Eagles. According to the official report, Vernett Bader, 54, became irritated with her 64-year-old roommate (and one-time boyfriend) after he rejected her pleas to turn off the Eagles and told her to "shut up." Bader then entered the kitchen and grabbed a serrated knife, which she subsequently used to stab her roommate several times in the arm, hand, and elbow. The roommate and his brother managed to wrestle the knife away from Bader, but she quickly retrieved another knife from the kitchen. All three were intoxicated at the time, per the report. It's unclear which of the band's songs drove Bader over the edge, but police have narrowed down the possible suspects to "Witchy Woman," "Take It Easy," "Peaceful Easy Feeling," "Take It to the Limit," "One of These Nights," "Tequila Sunrise," and "Hotel California" on repeat. Bader confessed to the crime, but claimed it was an act of self-defense to counter her roommate's choking. Investigators say Bader did not have any visible marks on her neck. Police charged Bader with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and she was booked into the Charleston County jail, where she remained held as of this afternoon. Tech Support Pits From: Chris Re: Does Chrome have a Session restore? Dear Webby, I tried Chrome after you suggested it. It is indeed a lot faster than FireFox. However, it sure seems to be missing some ameninties. It is way too easy to accidentally closing it. For example, if you need to see the HTML of a page, it's CTRL U, just like in Firefox. So far so good. However, when you want to close the Code View with ALT F4, just like in FireFox, then you close Chrome and all your open tabs are GONE. VERRRY BARRRBARRRIC! I learned the hard way that I have to pay attention and close the Code View with CTRL F4 instead. When absentminded habit takes over, Chrome shuts down and forgets all the tabs. Is there some way to do a Session Restore in Chrome? Thanks Chris Dear Chris I agree that some parts of Chrome are still incompetent. Same as with Gmail, some snooty yuppies decide what is good for you. What works some of the time is to hit CTRL SHIFT T a few seconds after Chrome re-opens, and restore closed tabs. You can hit the 3 bars at the right top, Settings and change the ON STARTUP choice to "Continue where I left off" It helps most of the time, but is a bit erratic. There is a third party extension called Session Buddy, that seems to be very popular for saving your sessions. You can get it free from Session Buddy Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Stopping the Burn from Spicy Food If you cook something that is very hot and spicy, I suggest that you serve it with some milk to drink with the meal. Milk products help stop the burn left in your mouth from hot, spicy food. Also, you could have ice cream or something like that for dessert! By Robin from Washington, IA Better yet is some bread. A lot of people have a lactose intolerance and can't drink milk, but even people with gluten allergies can take a bit of bread. Most of the gluten is in the crust, but it is the soft inner part, that sponges the hot stuff off the tongue. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

For best results, read this one out loud! "Information? I need the number of the Caseway Insurance Company." "Would you spell that, please?" "Certainly. C as in sea. A as in aye. S as in sea. E as in eye. W as in why. A as in are. Y as in you." The operator pauses. "Just a minute, sir. I'll connect you with my supervisor."
When I was younger, I believed the line was "Lead a snot into temptation." I thought I was praying for my little sister to get into trouble. ------ When my older brother was very young, he always walked up to the church altar with my mother when she took communion. On one occasion, he tugged at her arm and asked, "What does the priest say when he gives you the bread?" Mom whispered something in his ear. Imagine his shock many years later when he learned that the priest doesn't say, "Be quiet until you get to your seat."
