Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….

A Canadian customer was calling to find out if there was a faster way to trigger menu

commands than mousing up to the menus.  Agent: Certainly, sir. There are keyboard
shortcuts for many of those commands. For example, suppose you want to trigger the
Select All command…  Caller: Yes, I use that one all the time! How do I do it?  Agent:
Well, you just press Control-A.  Caller (after a pause): Well, that’s not working for me. 
Agent: Do you have a text document open in front of you?  Caller: Yes, I sure do. 
Agent: OK, now press Control-A.  Caller: I am, but nothing happens.  Agent: The text
isn’t highlighted?  Caller: No, there’s no change at all.  Agent: That’s odd. If you press
Control-A the whole document should be highlighted. Try it again. Press Control-A. Tell
me exactly what’s happening.  Caller (nearing his Canadian breaking point): Listen.
I’m pressing Control, eh? And nothing’s happening, eh? 😱😳😁😎



Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “Oh, I know it’s a rock, I know. But let’s just pretend for a minute that it’s a seed, alright?”

Answer:  A Bug’s Life!  “A Bug’s Life” was released in 1998. It is about a little ant named Flik who tries to make a difference by defeating the evil grasshopper, Hopper. Flik is voiced by Dave Foley. The quote in the question is one of Flik’s. He is speaking to Dot, and uses a rock to represent a seed that will eventually turn into a big tree. Dot keeps saying it is only a rock, and Flik gets frustrated with her because she won’t pretend the rock is a seed.

Wednesday’s Quizzler is…….

If you like pretty gems that sparkle and shine,
I invite you to dig in my virtual mine.
My first is purple, fit for a king,
My second is green where Dorothy did her thing.
My third is red, July’s birthstone as well,
My fourth is seen in strings and is found inside a shell.
My fifth is hard, pure Carbon and expensive to buy,
My sixth is Crocidolite, striped like the big cat’s eye.
Seventh is two words, a man-made fake of April’s stone,
Eighth is very dark and found at Lightning Ridge alone.
Now take from each gem, one letter in its turn,
And you will find the stuff for which even the gods yearn.
