Just For Grins
- 2014-10-20




I saw the FUNNIEST thing yesterday...

My friend just got back from a vacation, and wanted to show off his pictures!

So we get over to his house and... he starts looking for his digital camera's USB cord so he could plug it into his computer!

What?! People still do that?

Well, after about 10 minutes of him looking for the cable and apologzing, I remembered I had one of THESE bad boys in my car:

I grabbed it, popped it in one of his USB ports, and we were ready to go.

There's NO reason to torture yourself plugging in those big, bulky devices just to read the memory card!

The reason those memory cards come out is so they can be used like this!

Card readers are DESIGNED to access your data quickly! Ever notice when you plug in your camera or MP3 player it tries to open the software that came with the device?

You don't need to edit photos, you just want to look at 'em!

When you open those files up with a card reader, it just goes RIGHT to them!

Quick, easy, done.


So whatever you got, chances are it works in here!

Oh - and the best part?

I'm practically giving these things out! This deal will go down in history as one of the easiest decisions ever made on the planet.

Grab one for just $6.97!


Today's Joke

Tech Support

Years ago, I worked in the  customer service call center of a pager company. I dealth with the usual complaints regarding poor pager operation, as well as the occasional loony caller demanding to be paged less often, more often, or by more interesting people.

A good call came from Arthur, who repeatedly complained that he kept being paged by 'Lucille.'

I told him he would have to call her and tell her to stop paging him.

'She don't never leave no number, so I can't call her back,' Arthur said unhappily.

After three such calls, I thought to ask how he knew it was Lucille if she didn't leave a number.

'She leaves her name,' was Arthur's reply.

After establishing that the customer had a numeric-only pager, the light bulb came on.

'How does she spell her name?'  I asked.

'L-O-W C-E-L-L,' dictated Arthur clearly.

Yet another technical problem solved!

Last Laugh

Old Sayings

A first grade teacher collected well known sayings. She gave each kid in the class the first half of the saying and asked them to come up with the rest. Here’s how they answered:

It’s always darkest before………
daylight savings times.

You can lead a horse to water but …

Don’t bite the hand that…..looks dirty.

A penny saved is…….not much.

Children should be seen and not….. spanked or grounded.

There is no fool like…….Aunt Edie.

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you. Cry and…….you have to blow your nose.

Autumn Magic At Bond Falls

You know, I’m starting to really like Bond Falls. It’s located – more or less – in the north central area of Michigan’s UP, and let me tell ya – I’ve been there twice and pulled out a good shot each time! The first time was of the main falls, this time I went for the upper falls. In fact, back when I took the main falls I just -…(More)

Fall Cascades In The Smokies

Sometimes the good shots aren’t where you think they are. It was autumn in the Smoky Mountains. If you’ve never been there in the fall, you can be forgiven for thinking it’s a quiet, peaceful time of year when the tourists have flown home and you have the place to yourself. Nope, it’s a zoo. I think fall is actually getting as busy as – or even busier than - ...(More)

Black Bear Stare Down

It was “Bear Week” in Yellowstone fall of 2007! Seems like everywhere I went, I ended up takin’ snaps of bears. This guy was by far my favorite though. He was walking below the ridge line and we...(More)
