As you know, I am a Yahoo...  I had trouble receiving your enewsletter until I discovered if I put your emagazine address with a name I typed in myself.  I have had no more trouble except when I get a virus or some screwy bug on my system.  I don't know if it helps .ATT. but... It works for me.  Keep in mind I don't know exactly what I am doing on this 'puter business but I am learning.

Thanks, Janice!

Lots of children were waiting in line to get their cheeks painted by a local artist who was decorating them with tiger paws. "You've got so many freckles, there's no place to paint!" a girl in the line said to the little fella. Embarrassed, the little boy dropped his head. His grandmother knelt down next to him. "I love your freckles. When I was a little girl I always wanted freckles," she said, while tracing her finger across the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful." The boy looked up, "Really?" "Of course," said the grandmother. "Why just name me one thing that's prettier than freckles." The little boy thought for a moment, peered intensely into his grandma's face, and softly whispered, "Wrinkles." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Morris realized he needed to purchase a hearing aid, but he felt unwilling to spend much money. "How much do they cost ?" he asked the salesperson. "That depends," he said. "They run from $2.00 to $5,000." "Let's see the $2.00 model," said Morris the miser. The salesperson put the device around Morris' neck. "You just stick this button in your ear and run this little string down to your pocket," he instructed. "How does it work?" , asked Morris. "For $2.00 it doesn't work," the salesperson replied. "But when people see it on you, they'll talk louder!" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by David Fox, 65, Peterborough, Ontario Driver charged after dramatic video shows vicious attack of 74-year-old cyclist A driver has been charged after a dramatic video showed a 74-year-old cyclist viciously attacked on the side of the road with a club. Peterborough police said that just after 11 a.m. Tuesday, the cyclist was riding in the area of Erskine Ave. when an argument broke out between him and a truck driver. The driver climbed out of his truck and attacked the cyclist with a small club, police said. The video shows the cyclist on the ground with his attacker on top of him, striking him over and over in the head and torso. It shows the attacker stopping when witnesses approached and intervened. A truck sits beside them, with a bicycle crumpled on the street in front of the vehicle. The victim was seen bleeding profusely as he walked away. I'm filming all of this, the woman, who recorded the video, says as the driver gets back up and flicks blood off of his hands. The driver then fled the scene in his truck. Where am I bleeding? the cyclist asks the woman recording. Everywhere, she replys. The woman asked for her name to be withheld when later contacted by Peterborough This Week. The sound of the club hitting him was sickening, the woman told the newspaper. Blood was flying off it. She said she didn't witness what led to the encounter. They were flailing their arms around and the guy walked back to his truck, she said. She grabbed her phone to take a photo of the truck because she thought the cyclist might have been hit. Little did she know what the driver would do next. He became enraged and you could see him snap in the truck, she said. She continued recording and ran towards the men while yelling for the attacker to get off the bloodied man. When the woman and a handful of motorists came to the aid of the cyclist, the driver stopped, put the bloody club in his pocket and wiped blood from his own face. The woman helped the cyclist up from the ground and tried to stop the bleeding until paramedics arrived. I didn't know how bad it was because there was so much blood, she said. It was pouring down his face and he couldn't see out of his eyes. Additional witnesses tried to keep the driver in the area until police arrived but he drove off in his truck. The woman is afraid of what would have happened to the man if no one was around. He attacked a senior man and drove away, she said. Police made an arrest about an hour later. The cyclist was treated and released from Peterborough Regional Hospital. Police said the two men did not know each other. David Fox, 65, has been charged with aggravated assault and assault with a weapon. He was released from custody and scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 24. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Trish Re: Can't use links Dear Webby, I have a yet another (recent since changing to broadband) problem that perhaps you know the remedy for. I can't click on a 'link' to go to a website, I can copy and paste the 'shortcut to' but can't just click and go. If you have any ideas I would appreciate them, . I rang my provider and they said it was a Microsoft problem. I've tried Microsoft but too hard and they charge for help even if your registered can't find a way to contact McAfee on the internet as in "an email to them", as far as I can gather if it's not in the "FAQ's they don't want to know you, that goes for Microsoft as well. Thanks if you have an answer or even an address I can email for help from McAfee or Microsoft. Regards Trish Dear Trish That sounds like a mouse problem to me. Try adjusting the double-click speed in the control panel. If that does not help, try a different mouse. Have FUN! DearWebby
One day a farmer's donkey fell into a well. The animal cried pitifully for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided that the donkey was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; so it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the animal. He invited all his neighbors to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well and was astonished; with every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off! Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up! Remember the five simple rules for happiness: Enough of that! The donkey later came back and kicked the last three meals out of the farmer who had tried to bury him. Moral: When you try to cover your ass, it always comes back to get you.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Clean Bathtub with Powdered Dish Detergent By Lynn [6 Posts, 2 Comments] When your bathtub really gets grimy looking and the bathroom cleaners don't seem to be working, try a scrubby sponge and a bit of powder dish washer soap. It doesn't scratch, but it will get things super clean. By Lynn from WV ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Two Jewish men are on a train across Poland, each on his way to meet a prospective bride on the other side of the country. Halfway there, the first turns to the second and says, "Forget about this whole marriage thing. I just don't like the idea." So he gets off at the next stop and makes his way back home. Meanwhile, the second man continues on and is met at the final destination by the mothers of the two prospective brides. When the mothers realize what has happened, they instantly begin to fight over whose daughter should wed this precious man. "He's mine!" cries one. "Not on your life," cries the other, "He will marry my daughter!" After bickering for a while, the man and the two mothers decide to go the local rabbi and ask him to resolve the situation. In the grand tradition of the ancients, the rabbi replies, "Well, there is only one solution to this problem. Cut the boy in half, and you each take half home with you." At this, the first mother looks shocked, while the second mother grins and cries emphatically, "Yah! Cut him in half!!" The rabbi points to the second mother and says, "THAT is the real mother-in-law. Case closed." ___________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ >From Kim: In my job with a credit union, I often run across accounts that are protected by password. The credit-union member, when withdrawing funds, must produce identification and then give the password to the teller. Recently, when I asked a woman for her password, she sighed, rolled her eyes and replied, "Save." I was puzzled until she explained, "My husband used that password so I'd have to say it every time I make a withdrawal."

____________________________________________________ Groan Alert! A local elementary school principal told his teachers about a workshop that would help them become better teachers. One of his new teachers decided to attend. When she came back boy was she fired up. She was so excited, the principal asked what happened. She said, "I went expecting to come back a better teacher. The first speaker was good and it was just an outstanding workshop. The final speaker summed it all up when she said all you teachers have to do is...follow a simple principal."
