I like Safeway good enough; there, 14 donuts equals one dozen!!
Just don't go in and try to buy 5 'assorted varieties' Post breakfast cereals between 14-20 ounces for $5.00 with their coupon in the paper this week. It doesn't matter if a certified Safeway employee TELLS you that means ANY Post cereals in that ounce range. You better just get Raisin Brand (yuck) or Honey Bunches of Oats cause THAT'S what "assorted varieties" mean. Because, when you get to the checkout, it will ring ANY other variety up at regular price. Then when I innocently told the checker to stick them up her butt, she pressed some hidden button that froze her computer screen and it wouldn't do anything.
After getting about half the employees gathered around the cash register, they had to shut the machine down, restart it, then take all the groceries back out of my cart and run them again while the line behind me grew to mob proportions; and about the same mindset. All the while I was sweetly telling the impromptu employee meeting if they didn't practice bait & switch and deceptive advertising they wouldn't have this problem. THEN to my rescue came one young checker who blurted out, "Oh, we have been hearing this complaint all week!" Everything came to a standstill as all the other employees stared at her and the assistant manager turned beet red while writing down her tag number.
I left with my chin(s) held high, albeit no cereal.
|...and from our good friend William Thornton:
I been painting for 30 years+. In 20 years of using the WD40, I've never had any rust come back through anything I painted this way (this is just the way I do it ...OK!!). WD40 will neutralize rust stops it dead in its tracks.
When I got my truck, I scratched the rust with Brillo pad or sandpaper; whatever I could get to. Then blew everything off with air; all the little crevices, up under the truck. Then just saturated everything with WD40. After it sits hour or so, blow off excess with air (rust has been stopped.) Then let it sit, for a couple of weeks at least, and paint with primer. I use spray cans; that way I can get paint in tight spots with that under truck!! Works great for me.
If its rusty, it gets the WD40 treatment from me. And yes, I Figured This Out!! I put WD40 on everything that moves or don't move (did I say everything??) This means computer keys,... let's just say everything!! My house smells like WD-40 & my Truck. (...even ME) I've had 4 major surgeries; 3 steel plates in left foot, full right hip replacement, right shoulder been reconstructed, 3 ruptured disc in back (fell through scaffold in 1982)!! I just about bath in WD40. The doctors can't believe how good I HEALED UP! No skin problems and I could go on and on about this!!! (do not attempt this at home! ...ed)

There is a bug with Microsoft's OS and the network at BellevueComputers
in Corvallis, Oregon.
Try this: Take a C: drive with Windows 98. Back it up onto Bellevue's network using drag-and-drop. Do a low-level format on the old C: drive and install Windows XP. Drag the backup into a new folder on the XP desktop.
Folder within will be empty; no Desktop, and everything relating to Outlook
Express 6 is gone (spell checker, favorites and emails.)
