Best-ever Freeware Utilities

This site lists a lot of stuff that I use, so it must be good! :-)
AVG Anti Virus ( allow you to download a free anti-virus program.
Spybot Search and Destory ( for getting rid of spyware.
Ad Aware ( cleans your system of programs you don't want on your PC.
Win Patrol ( is a great little program that sits in the background and tells you when programs are trying to change the settings on your PC.

Anyway, there's 46 of them. For some reason the list does not contain

Zone Alarm (, a free firewall that lets you know what programs are trying to connect to the internet.

Nor does the list contain House Call ( as it is a free online anti-virus scans.

Terror alert in France

AP and UPI are reporting that the French Government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "run" to "hide." The only two higher levels in France are "surrender" and "collaborate."

The elevated alert level was precipitated by the recent fire which destroyed one of their white flag factories, effectively disabling their military.

A fireman notices a little girl next door playing with a little red wagon with
little ladders hanging off the sides and a garden hose tightly coiled
in the middle. The girl is wearing a fireman's helmet. The wagon is
being pulled by her dog and her cat. The fireman walks over to
take a closer look.

That sure is a nice fire engine" the fireman says with admiration.

"Thanks" the girl says. The fireman looks a little closer and notices
the girl has tied the wagon to her dog's collar and to the cat's

The fireman says, "I don't want to tell you how to run your rig, but
if you were to tie that rope around the cat's collar too, I think you
could go faster."

The little girl replies thoughtfully, "You're probably right, but then
I wouldn't have a siren."
