here is your funny for today...

my secretary and friend is kinda anti computers. does not have one at home... she can do some programs for bookeeping if I keep it simple and like make word documents.

anyways, I got her a email the other day because, she keeps telling customers "we dont have email I can fax you something" ( which makes me a little crazy ) so, I also hooked her computer up to the internet...
(she is not young)

anyways, today the salesman from the phone system co. dropped by to see what we think. and he asked if we had manuals for the new phones (no) so he says oh they are on the internet you can download them... then he looks at June and says, ok google this ( phone name & number) and she looks at him and says... oh we dont have google we have internet...


so... I spend a bunch of time this afternoon trying to explain the net... and google is now booked marked on her computer

well so far she only has 4 whole emails in her outlook... and two of them are to the other computers at work... mine and hubs...

and so... its an adventure and she keeps telling me that I am not allowed to laugh at her and I tell her its too late she went into the friend zone a few years ago, its the I will help you up when you fall after I am done laughing at you kind of a deal.

The shop at the mall where I find a lot of neat stuff for the kiddos was having a 20% off sale today (plus I had a gc and a $5 coupon), so I took myself off there after work today to see what I could see. Ended up getting a half dozen of these: Micro Vehicles
for Grasshopper for Christmas. I got the runalong car, the plane, the train, the dumptruck, and a racecar & an ambulance (couldn't find the last two on the site, though they are tagged as micro vehicles same as the others). They are foamy/spongy and nicely shaped for small hands to be able to grab. Grasshopper will be almost one by Christmas, so these should be just about right. Though I was a bit annoyed that they would not let me use the $5 coupon because of the sale. At least the coupon has no expiry date, so I can use it whenever.
ETA: Found the ambulance & the race car: http://rubbabutoys.corecommerce.com/Specials/

The idjits are, as Shannah would say, "hoon-driving" again.
This is getting a bit ridiculous. I've a good mind to lodge a complaint with the police department as this is becoming a regular, every night thing. And there are so many seniors residences right near me, and they do cross the street. And the idjits most definitely run plenty of red lights. It is a tragedy waiting to happen.

its very possible they are short staffed like everything else and do not know that its taking place on your street. its worth mentioning. (maybe you'll even see them do speed traps and catch them before someone gets hurt)

Yes, better to do it now than to have something happen first.

The neighbors here with too many things on their property just pulled up with a motorhome this afternoon. They better just be borrowing it for the weekend because if they add that to their over crowded driveway I'm gonna be angry (already parks his crew cab truck and big trailer in the grass - can't park on the road from 2-6am but sometimes he does or he moves onto the grass).

No, enjoy. Seems like one of my boys had something similar to the ambulance (same shape but all blue). I remember it had nice quiet wheels too so it wouldn't be loud on the kitchen floor.

No I don't back in but it's hard to see because they have the boys that play all over the culdesac so either they are running around or their toys are laying in the middle of the road. Add the vehicle(s) parked out there and you have to be very careful of who/what might be in the way.

I hate to disappear when there are peeps here to chat with, but I'm pretty well at the propping the eyelids open with toothpicks stage, so I think I am going to call it a night.

Sears & Roebuck - no. Around here we ask if they got it out of the cracker jack box............

It could be only a single car accident. If there were two occupants, they'd need two ambulances to transport. And most firestations here have 2 or 3 trucks, and the whole station responds where there is a call.

usually when one fire truck and one ambulance go by they are going to one of the older peoples homes in the neighborhood. ( like medical home emergency type things) but this was too many vehicles some police too now so, most likely a crash.

I got flipped off while running errands today...she was crossing and I was leaving a parking lot to make a left and apparently I didn't do the speeder the honor of waiting to turn until she passed me. There was plenty of time to turn because I was parallel to her when she flipped me but she was speeding, looked like early 20s age.

Guess our work alarms have been going off too often lately. The door doesn't shut tight so it doesn't lock right and the wind makes it open so the alarm goes off. They've been trying to "fix" the door for three weeks now. It's an outer door and luckily the inner door is also locked, but the head honchos still get called.

I've never understood why people do that - it doesn't actually DO anything - except make them look like an idjit.
