In eight more days the river in San Antonio will look like that. Unless the town has become too politically correct.

An English professor wrote the following words on a chalkboard, and asked his students to add the proper punctuation :
  • A woman without her man is nothing
All of the males in the class wrote :
  • A woman, without her man, is nothing.
And every female in class had it this way :
  • A woman: without her, man is nothing.
Punctuation is a very powerful thing ! :shock:

How true, Richyrich. :)
Punctuation is the traffic signs of the written word.
Unfortunately, few people understand even the use of the simple comma.
Punctuation makes reading easier and more comprehensible.

Well, I need a drink. Not for installing LM Xfce 201104 - that was easy. Now I am blogging about it. :roll:

Happy Birthday. Funny, it was my dad's birthday too. We did a steak dinner for him and I set his new computer up with Mint 10 KDE :)

I dropped by to say hello to Clem and everyone.I like Mint 10 very much.A hacker got into one of my PCs with Win XP so I had to delete my Yahoo e mails.I plan to use Mint most of the time from now on and put anything personal on external hard drives.I registered here several years ago with a Yahoo e mail account but it is no good now. The hacker could have swindled me out of a large fortune.Lucky for me that most of my fortune is in junk computers and not cash.So now I run Linux on everything .I feel more secure now.I like the Mint board best.Nice folks here.I wonder if Clem is still in Ireland? I have been away a long time.He is a good man.

Well, that was noteworthy! :D
