Re: Friends List
Dear Webby,
In reference to Doris not getting the humor letter, you
suggested having her put into her friends
list or white list. I'm not too sharp on computer lingo,
explain friends list and white list. Thanks
Dear Lee
All spam control programs and most email programs have
a list of authorized addresses. Some call it address book,
some call it White-List, some call it Friends-List.
When an address is in that list, then mail from that address
is not checked with the regular junk-mail filters.
Dedicated programs like MailWasher
let you make very sophisticated filters quite easily using
the built in filter maker, and even arrange the filters by
Keep in mind, once a piece of mail has been judged good or
bad, it won't be judged again by filters further down the
list. Don't sort them alphabetically, but by their priority.
For example, move a filter that judges all mail from your
daughter as good, up to the top,
and a filter, that judges all mail that has the name of a
certain pill, way down. That way, even if she jokes about
that pill, it will be OK, since her mail has already been
judged as good.
As long as you keep seniority or priority in mind, filters
are really easy and predictable.
Have FUN!

When canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery
stores in around the 1940's, she read an advertisement
offering $5,000 for the best slogan. The producers wanted
a rhyme beginning with "Carnation Milk is best of all....
She thought to herself, I know all about milk & dairy
I can do this!
She sent in her entry & about a week later, a black limo
drove up in front of her house.
A man got out & said "Carnation LOVED your entry so much,
we are here to award you $1000, even though we will not be
able to use it."

Daily tip from
Berry Lime Sorbet
By Holly805 [13 Posts, 10 Comments]
This sorbet is a sweet, slightly tart treat, that is perfect
for the end of summer. It is non-fat and also has reduced
sugar content. A honey syrup with whole fruit enhances the
consistency and adds natural sweetness. No ice cream maker
needed! Perfect for someone looking for a healthier
alternative to store bought ice cream or sorbet.
Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: Chill overnight
Yield: 6-8 1/2 cup servings
Source: Trial and error. :)
1/4 cup lime juice
1/3-1/2 cup honey
24 oz frozen mixed berries (1/2 of a 3 pound bag)
2 small frozen bananas, sliced
2 tsp lime zest
2-3 Tbsp almond milk (optional)
Zest and juice 3 to 4 limes.
Measure the honey and add with lime juice to a small
saucepan over medium low heat. Bring to a low bubble and
simmer for two minutes, whisking occasionally. This makes a
simple syrup, the necessary element for a smooth texture.
Set out the frozen fruit to soften while the syrup simmers.
Cool the syrup slightly.
Add 1/2 the berries and the banana slices to the blender
(the bananas enhance the consistency and cannot be tasted in
the finished sorbet). Pour in the steaming syrup over the
fruit. The heat from the syrup will soften the fruit enough
for blending. Add the lime zest and puree on high, mixing as
When the mixture is smooth, stir in the remaining berries.
Puree, adding 2-3 Tbsp. almond milk if additional liquid is
needed to blend the fruit.
Pour the mixture into a freezer safe storage container and
freeze for two hours. Next, transfer the partially frozen
mixture to a bowl. Beat until the overall consistency is
smooth. Freeze for another two hours and repeat this
The mixture should be more thick, like soft served ice
cream. This mimics the churning process of an ice cream
maker, which prevents large ice crystals from forming and
ruining the scoop-able consistency.
Freeze the sorbet for an additional 3-4 hours or overnight.
Prior to serving, set the sorbet out to soften for about
three minutes. It should scoop easily into nice, compact

And you thought 6th grade band was boring
From Candy
My engineer husband is meticulous but mild-mannered. While
our new house was being built, he would leave notes for the
workmen, politely calling their attention to mistakes or
oversights. Two weeks before we were to move in, the floors
still were not finished, the bathrooms not tiled, nor were
necessary fixtures installed. I was sure that the work would
never be completed in time. However, on moving day, we found
that the house was ready to receive us.
Curious as to how this miracle had been accomplished, I went
and checked where my husband always left his notes for the
Posted prominently on the living room wall was my husband's
last note: "after September 10, all work will be supervised
by my wife and 5 children."
An unusual hotel in a nature reserve.
A nun, badly needing to use the restroom, walked into a
local Hooters. The place was hopping with music and loud
conversation and every once in a while the lights would
turn off. Each time the lights would go out, the place
would erupt into cheers.
However, when the revelers saw the nun, the room went
dead silent.
She walked up to the bartender and asked, "May I please
use the restroom?"
The bartender replied, "OK, but I should warn you that there
is a statue of a naked man in there wearing only a fig
"Well, in that case I'll just look the other way," said the
So, the bartender showed the nun to the back of the
restaurant, and she proceeded to the restroom. After a few
minutes, she came back out, and the whole place stopped
just long enough to give the nun a loud round of applause.
She went to the bartender and said, "Sir, I don't
understand. Why did they applaud for me just because I went
to the restroom?"
"Well, now they know you're one of us," said the bartender.
"Would you like a drink?"
"But, I still don't understand," said the puzzled nun.
"You see," laughed the bartender, "every time the fig leaf
on the statue is lifted up, the lights go out. Now, how
about that drink?"

Enjoy your newsletter everyday and always seem to get a
chuckle. There you were today picking on us Southerners
for calling all soft drinks a Coke...which by the way is
almost always true.
Made me think of an incident one year while on vacation
in Hawaii. We stopped at a Burger King for a quick lunch
and I ordered a mustard whopper and the guy behind the
counter said "you must be from Texas".
Seems Texans were the only ones who ordered them that way.
From Dennis
Dear Webby
I got a big kick out of the little addition you tacked on to
the story about ordering sodas at the movies. I spent my
college years in Tennessee and heard that conversation
many times. In my area, you had to first ask for a cold
drink (that's pronounced "cole drank"). If you didn't
specify "coke", you were handed whatever brand of beer
happened to be in the fridge (which would have the catch-all
tag of "Bud"). Or, you could specify "coke" and then further
qualify your choice.
The other language barrier issue that most amused/irritated
me had to do with hats. I'm from Upstate New York, so if
someone mentioned a toboggan, I would think of a sled made
of laminated wood, ten or twelve feet long with a curved-up
end. In Tennessee, a toboggan is the hat you wear while
riding a sled made of laminated wood, ten or twelve feet
long with a curved-up end.
Thanks for the chuckle on the walk own Memory Lane
