10 Laws of Computing
If you have reached the point where you really understand your computer, it’s probably obsolete.
When you are computing, if someone is watching, whatever happens, behave as though you meant it to happen.
When the going gets tough, upgrade your computer.
The first place to look for information is in the section of the manual where you’d least expect to find it.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite malfunction.
To err is human … to blame your computer for your mistakes is even more human, its downright natural.
He who laughs last, probably has a back-up.
The number one cause of computer problems is computer solutions.
A complex system that doesn’t work is invariably found to have evolved from a simpler system that worked just fine.
A computer program will always do what you tell it to do, but rarely what you want it to do.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a HAPPY TUESDAY people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A small boy stunned his parents after church one Sunday when he began to empty
his pockets of nickels, dimes, and quarters. Finally, his mother asked the obvious
question: “Where did you get all that money?”
“At Sunday school,” the boy replied enthusiastically. “They got bowls of it!” 😳
Mondays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Doo, I’m glad I make you proud, honey, but I can’t sing in front of people. I just can’t.”
“Yes you can, baby.”
Answer: Coal Miner’s Daughter!
In this scene Doolittle “Doo” Lynn (Tommy Lee Jones) is in a ladies rest room trying to talk his young wife Loretta (Sissy Spacek) into singing on stage with the band in a honky tonk bar (she had fled there to escape Doo). Loretta had thought they were just going out socially together and this caught her by surprise (this was to be her first appearance singing in public). Doo really pushed Loretta into her singing career, where she became known as the unofficial “First Lady of Country Music.” The real Loretta Lynn handpicked Sissy Spacek to portray her on screen in this biopic of Loretta’s life. Both Sissy Spacek and Beverly D’Angelo (she plays county singer Patsy Cline) do all their own singing in this movie.
In the 1981 Academy Awards, Sissy Spacek won the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role. “Coal Miner’s Daughter” was nominated for Best Picture, but lost to “Ordinary People.” After Doo died in 1996 (after 48 years of marriage) Loretta said, “I miss everything about him. There was no decision I ever made without talking it over with him.” Their twin girls Patsy and Peggy formed a country-singing group called the Lynns, and they have appeared onstage with their mother.

A Swaffergy is a word that can be broken up into two parts: a different word and a letter of the English Alphabet.
The word “defense” is a common Swaffergy. It can be broken up into the letter “D”, and the word “Fence”. As a Swaffergy, it would be written like this:
D + A structure serving as an enclosure, a barrier, or a boundary, usually made of posts or stakes joined together by boards, wire, or rails.
Which will give you “D-Fence”, or “defense”.
Can you find the answers to the following Swaffergies?
- B + To go out of or away from
- B + The uppermost or forwardmost part of the body of a vertebrate, containing the brain and the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and jaws
- B + Used by a golfer to warn those ahead that a ball is headed in their direction
