Ask bank about Y2K, Fed suggests
By Russell Grantham

If you're wondering how diligently your bank's getting ready for the Y2K computer bugs looming over year's end, you should ask the bank yourself for a progress report, suggests the Federal Reserve.
In fact, a smoke detector was one of perhaps a half-dozen devices containing computer chips that the St. Louis Fed had to replace as part of its Y2K preparations, said Jeffrey M. Dale, who's in charge of overseeing the process for the bank.
Coincidentally, the ...
ADA suggests that you ask your local dentist who the 'best' dentist in town is.
The Chamber of Commerce suggests that you ask your local carpet
cleaning company if you shold consider having your rugs shampooed.
And don't forget to run down to your bank and ask them if your money is safe. Never mind their SELF_interest in telling you that everything is hunky dory even though there are a MYRIAD of things TOTALLY out of their control that could EASILY lose evry penny that you have in the bank.
"Not to worry" they will respond. "And get this, we checked all those sily devices and found out, guess what? One of our smoke detectors had to be replaced!".
While your at it , ask the hooker on the corner if you need your pipes cleaned.
If you live within five miles of a 7-11, you're toast.

At last count, I'm just over 539 miles from the nearest 7-11. Hoping that is far enough! Using the snow for
cover, also makes a great moat against intruders.
PS: By the way, that is as the crow flies (raven) up
here. Only problem is they don't fly straight.

Thanks a. I for one, find Milne really funny (and dead serious).
Heaven knows, humor is needed. I never know for sure how to respond
emotionally to how y2k is being dealt with. Cry? Throw something?
Wander around mumbling under my breathe? I have chosen to LOL at the
insanity. Milne has just covered one of those aspects of y2k that is
completely insane! There are many others, so keep it coming, please!
