~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacations with better care than they plan their lives. Perhaps that is because escape is easier than change." - Jim Rohn

I like to recall the instance of the little girl who had to go to the hospital for a very serious operation. When they brought her to the operating table, the surgeon said to her, "Dear, before we can make you well, we must first put you to sleep."

"Oh, then," she replied, "if you are going to put me to sleep, I must say my prayers." She got down on her knees by the operating table and prayed a simple little prayer.

When the little girl had finished, there were tears in the eyes of those looking on. The surgeon later said, "I prayed that night for the first time in thirty years."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Answering Machine Messages
Part 2 of 2 [Jan 4 & 14]

Thank you for calling the CSU Automated Hearing Test Line. Prepare for Test 1. Is this tone louder in your left ear or right ear? ... BEEP

Hello, this is Ron's toaster. Ron's new answering machine is in the shop for repairs, so please leave your message when the toast is done... (Cachunk!)

Thank you for calling 434-2322. If you wish to speak to Tim, push 1 on your touch tone phone now. If you wish to speak to Lynn, push 2 on your touch tone phone now. If you have a wrong number, push 3 on your touch tone phone now. All of this button pushing doesn't do anything, but it is a good way to work off anger, and it makes us feel like we have a big time phone system.

I can't come to the phone now, so if, well, actually, I CAN come to the phone now, I mean, like, I'm at the phone NOW, recording this message, but I'm doing this NOW, while you're listening to it LATER, except for you I guess it's NOW, like, when you're listening to it... I mean, like, wait. This is so confusing.

The number you have reached, 226-0477, has been changed. The new number is 226-0477. Please make a note of it.

A troop of Boy Scouts was being used as "guinea pigs" in a test of emergency systems. A mock earthquake was staged, and the Scouts impersonated wounded persons who were to be picked up and cared for by the emergency units. One Scout was supposed to lie on the ground and await his rescuers, but the first-aid people got behind schedule, and the Scout lay "wounded" for several hours.

When the first-aid squad arrived where the casualty was supposed to be, they found nothing but a brief note: "Have bled to death and gone home..."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Dragging to Minimized Windows

Know what I hate? Trying to drag something to a folder and finding that the thing is minimized. There you are, looking like an fool with your finger down on the left mouse button but nowhere to drop. What can you do?

Easy - yell at your computer.

After that, try this:

1. Grab the item and drag it to the taskbar button of the minimized folder.

2. Hold the mouse cursor over the button for a few seconds, the folder will open back up.

3. Drop the file into the folder and take back what you said about your computer.

Cool huh?
