Hello to everyone too. I have posted a few times and I am very new to MBs. In fact I am fairly new to the internet too!!( I know...in this day and age!) I just wanted to let everyone know that I am quite harmless and hopefully I don't stick my proverbial foot in my mouth too many times..

This is what's wrong with the youth of America today. When I was a lad, my ass was cropped regularly, once a day - whether I "deserved" it or not. And my poor self esteem survived quite nicely thank you!

Comment: I received an email today that my Norton Virus Detector said had a virus,
but it deleted the virus. It was from Georgia, no last name. It only held
instructions for the computer, like how to use the start button. I
deleted it after the alert was shown.

Brad isn't a virus, he's a word processing program.

Word processor (wurd PROH-ses-sir): A computer program intended to prevent writers from cluttering up the world with their work. Word processors accept input in the form of typed letters, interpret them as binary code, and process them into gibberish. Today most word processors come with helpful programs that are guaranteed to make Einstein look like an idiot. One will write,

God bless the mothers, for they are the love of the world.

The computer program will think about that and transform it to

God bless the moths, for their the Lubbock the world.

The writer will stare at this and wonder if he or she has completely lost his or her tiny mind. The writer will type "mother" over "moths," and a damn little paper clip will pop up.

"SUBJECT/VERB AGREEMENT: Did you mean 'moths'?"

"No," the writer says out loud.

"SUGGESTION: The verb 'for' does not agree with 'moth.' Change it to 'fors'."

"What the hell are you talking about?" asks the writer.

The paper clip scratches its, uh, head. "DID YOU MEAN 'they are'?"

"No," the writer says sarcastically. "That's why I typed it."

Somehow the line changes:

Got past the moths, they are in Lubbock, TH, world.

The writer changes "Got." The damned paper clip changes the sentence to

God passed the moths, and they are in Lubbock, TX. Word!

At this point, the writer gives up and gets drunk, which is the purpose of the program. Had Ernest Hemingway lived long enough, he would have been a happy man.

Mind you, they are cute, but caribou aren't that hard to train. Mine stays down, at least when I'm in the room. Right now he's curled up by the dehumidifier.

Maybe I'm reading too much into their minds but I have wondered how come snopes receives so much messages about updatting the pages - when he's constantly doing so. Here's my theory:

1)Reader reads a page from snopes.
2)Reader thinks s/he has an interesting comment to make.
3)Reader posts comment to snopes.
4)Several days later, same user comes to the same page to see if his/her comment has been sufficient food for thought as to make Barbara or snopes update their page.
5)Thinking his/her wonderful, insightful comment couldn't possibly have gone to the gutter, user posts above comment.
