    One Mans Opinion

    Part IHappy New Year to our Advertisers and Readers! I just wanted toremind you of the various ways you can access the HOT SPOT incase you missed the printed magazine. You can always go to ourwebsite, and see the current andpast issues along with our videos, links to our advertisers websites and email along with useful andfun websites and WHOT and WGFM Internet Radio Stations. We also have the current and pastissues on for, just search on The Hot Spot. We also have a channel on Youtube,which features our videos from functions and clubs around town. Were listed as SavHotSpot.Were looking for other sites to exchange links with as to make it easier to find the latest issue. Ifyoure interested in exchanging links with us, email me at: [email protected] addition, if your business does not have a website and you need a web presence, you may

    purchase a page or two on our site for a small design and even smaller monthly fee.

    Part IIJoan was telling me about shopping for a Play Yard for the new grand baby. I had to ask what was aPlay Yard? She told me, they used to be called Playpens. I went online and looked at some pictures.The Play Yards are lightweight, collapsible with netting. I guess they are an improvement on the oldPlaypens which had bars and a padded floor. But why change the name? Play Yard, Playpen,theyre still the same. Why dont they just call it like it is, Baby Jail.

    Part IIIWell the freeze finally killed off most of the Gilliard Farm. Up until this last cold snap, we were stillgetting bell peppers from about five plants. The only thing left are the collards and cabbages. Wepulled everything else up and turned the soil, giving it a rest for a while. I also turned the compostheaps I have out back and the secret ones in the woods behind the house. Ive been pricing tillersand cultivators and cant wait to start growing new plants from seeds in a few weeks. Yes, Im agentleman farmer in my old age, because theres nothing better than going out in the back yard,pulling up some onions, picking some tomatoes & cucumbers and cutting some lettuce for theworlds greatest salad. Dont get me started about the squash and okra and on and on. I cant wait.

    Just, One Mans Opinion.Live Long and Prosper

    Ronald A. Gilliard, Publisher

    Thanks Savannah, for over 11 Years of the HOT SPOT!

    The HOT SPOT Goes to Collegeby:

    Davida M. HarrisSavannah State University

    Department of Social & Behavioral Sciences

    I am a professor at Savannah State University.Recently on one of my visits to a Hot Spot location,I ran into a couple of my sociology students. Whenwe returned to class the following day, the studentswanted to talk about their experience at the particularlocation. The students decided to pull up archive is-sues of your magazine. Initially the students wanted tolaugh but I reminded them that we are in a sociology class and that in order to be

    good sociologist that they must use their sociological imaginations when makinginferences about any patterns.

    We began to analyze the various pictures and videos on your website. We were ableto conclude that there are consequences to the service you provide. Most of us thinkof consequences are negative, which is simply not the case. We went back to ourintroductory course information and determined that there are latent and manifestfunctions or your service. Manifest functions are the intended consequences of anysocial pattern and the latent are the unintended. We focused on the unintended


    Your service allows a social disadvantaged group to experience things that they wouldprobably never experience in their lives if a service like yours did not exist for them. Tobe photographed and printed in a bi-weekly publication for all of their peers to see. Itsuggests a degree of increased social status that in practically every other socialarena they would go un-noticed. Everyone likes to feel respected and most peopleidentify high status commands respect. By being able to let everyone view them in apublication that affords the opportunity for a large population to see in a way createsa higher status.

    In the past, our people have received their status in the church, by holding officerpositions that would allow them to be noticed as well. But as we all know everyonecant hold officer positions but everyone has the same opportunity to be a part of thephoto gallery in The Hot Spot Magazine. I wanted to formally thank you for assistingme adding an applied component to my lectures. Being able to witness what the text-books record is teaching at it best. Thank you for the service you provide, not justacademically but for providing a medium for our people to shine.

    When my printer's type began to growfaint, I called a local repair shop where afriendly man informed me that the printerprobably needed only to be cleaned. Be-

    cause the store charged $50 for suchcleanings, he told me, I might be betteroff reading the printer's manual and tryingthe job myself.

    Pleasantly surprised by his candor, Iasked, "Does your boss know that youdiscourage business?"

    "Actually it's my boss's idea," the em-

    ployee replied sheepishly. "We usuallymake more money on repairs if we letpeople try to fix things themselves first."

    Sarcasm is just one more service we offer.

    Adults are just kids who owe money.

    Who are these kids and why are they calling meMom?

    I pretend to work. They pretend to pay me.

    You! Off my planet!

    Errors have been made. Others will be blamed.

    I majored in liberal arts. Would you like fries withthat?


    Famous Last Words

    I'll get a world record for this.

    It's fireproof.

    I'm making a citizen's arrest.

    So, you're a cannibal.

    Are you sure the power is off?

    Yeah, I made the deciding vote on the jury, sowhat of it?

    I've seen this done on TV.

    These are the good kind of mushrooms.

    Let it down slowly.

    Rat poison only kills rats.

    Just take whatever you want, this is a ghosttown.

    It's strong enough for both of us.

    This doesn't taste right.

    Nice doggie.

    I've done this before.

    Well, we've made it this far.

    That's odd.

    Don't be so superstitious.

    "Great. Where do you live?"

    When you reach the sixth floor, go downthe hall until you see my name on the door.Then press the doorbell with your rightelbow and I'll let you in."

    "Good. But tell me...what is all this busi-ness of kicking the front door open, thenpressing elevator buttons with my right,then my left elbow?"

    "Surely, you're not coming empty-handed."

    Clever ScamTaking Advantage of Older Men

    Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in darkparking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. I wanted to pass iton in case you haven't heard about it. This will only become more commonplace asthe weather warms in the spring.

    A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Lowes or Home Depot customers.This one caught me by surprise. Over the last two months I became a victim of aclever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out tobe quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or yourfriends.

    Here's how the scam works:Two seriously good-looking 20-something girls come over to your car as you arepacking your shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield witha rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It isimpossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No'and instead ask you for a ride to McDonalds.

    You agree and they get into the back seat. On the way, they start undressing. Thenone of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, whilethe other one steals your wallet. I had my wallet stolen October 4th, 9th, 10th,twice on the 15th,17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also November 1st & 4th, twice on the8th, 16th, 23rd, 26th & 28th, three times last Monday and very likely again thisupcoming weekend.

    So tell your friends to be careful. What a horrible way to take advantage of oldermen. Warn your friends to be vigilant. Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99each. I found cheaper ones for $1.99 at K- Mart and bought them out. Also, younever will get to eat at McDonalds. I've already lost 11 pounds just running backand forth to Lowes and Home Depot.

    Happy New Year to all of you. I will be at Home Depot!Dr. I.M. Smartt

    An old, tired-looking dog wandered into theyard. I could tell from his collar and well-fedbelly that he had a home.

    He followed me into the house, down the hall,and fell asleep on the couch. An hour later, hewent to the door, and I let him out. The nextday he was back, resumed his position on thecouch and slept for an hour. This continued

    for several weeks. Curious, I pinned a note to

    his collar: 'Every afternoon your dog comesto my house for a nap.'

    The next day he arrived with a different notepinned to his collar: 'He lives in a home withfour children -- he's trying to catch up on hissleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?'

    A couple has a dog that snores. Annoyedbecause she can???t sleep, the wife goesto the vet to see if he can help. The vettells the woman to tie a ribbon around the

    dog's testicles and he will stop snoring."Yeah, right," she says.

    A few minutes after going to bed, the dogbegins snoring as usual. The wife tossesand turns, unable to sleep. Muttering toherself, she goes to the closet and grabs apiece of ribbon and ties it carefullyaround the dog's testicles. Sure enough,

    the dog stops snoring. The woman isamazed!

    Later that night, her husband returnshome drunk from being out with hisbuddies. He climbs into bed, falls asleep,and begins snoring loudly. The womanthinks maybe the ribbon will work onhim. So she goes to the closet again,

    grabs a piece of ribbon, and carefullyties it around her husband's testicles.Amazingly, it also works on him! Thewoman sleeps soundly.

    The next morning, the husband wakesup hung over. He stumbles into the bath-room. As he stands in front of the toilet,he glances in the mirror and sees a blue

    ribbon attached to his privates. He is veryconfused, and as he walks back into thebedroom, he sees a red ribbon attached tohis dog's testicles. He shakes his head andlooks at the dog and says, "Boy, I don'tremember where we were or what we did,but, by God, we got first and secondplace."


    A drunk walks into a bar and says to the bar-tender, "Bartender, buy everyone in the housea drink, pour yourself one, and give me thebill."

    So, the bartender does just that and hands theman a bill for $57.00. The drunk says, "I have-n't got it."

    The bartender slaps the guy around a fewtimes then throws him out into the street.

    The very next day the same drunk walks intothe bar and once again says, "Bartender, buy

    everyone in the house a drink, pour yourselfone, and give me the bill."

    The bartender looks at the guy and figures tohimself that he can't possibly be stupid enoughto pull the same trick twice, so he gives himthe benefit of the doubt, pours a round ofdrinks for the house, has a drink himself andhands the drunk a bill for $67.00.

    The drunk says, "I haven't got it."

    The bartender can't believe it. He picks theguy up, beats the living daylights out of him,then throws him out into the street.

    The next day the same drunk walks back intothe same bar and says, "Bartender, buy everyone in the house a drink, give me the bill.

    In disgust, the bartender says, "What, no drinkfor me this time?"

    The drunk replies, "You? No way! You get tooviolent when you drink."

    Floppy Disk CareBy following the instructions below, you should haveerror-free, long-lasting floppy disks.

    1. Never leave diskettes in the disk drive, as data can leak outof the disk and corrode the inner mechanics of the drive.

    Diskettes should be rolled up and stored in pencil holders.

    2. Diskettes should be cleaned and waxed once a week.Microscopic metal particles can be removed by waving apowerful magnet over the surface of the disk. Any stubbornmetallic shavings can be removed with scouring powder andsoap. When waxing the diskettes, make sure the surface is even.This will allow the diskette to spin faster, resulting in betteraccess time.

    3. Do not fold diskettes unless they do not fit into the drive."Big" diskettes may be folded and used in "little" disk drives.

    4. Never insert a diskette into the drive upside down. The

    data can fall off the surface of the disk and jam the intricatemechanics of the drive.

    5. Diskettes cannot be backed up by running them through thexerox machine. If your data is going to need to be backed up,simply insert two diskettes into the drive. Whenever you updatea document, the data will be written on both diskettes.

    6. Diskettes should not be inserted or removed from the drivewhile the red light is flashing. Doing so could result insmeared or possibly unreadable text. Occasionally the red lightremains flashing in what is known as a "hung" or "hooked"state. If your system is "hooking" you will probably need to

    insert a few coins before being allowed access to the slot.

    7. If your diskette is full and you need more storage space,remove the disk from the drive and shake vigorously for 2minutes. This will pack the data enough (Data Compression) toallow for more storage. Be sure to cover all the openings withscotch tape to prevent loss data.

    8. Access time can be greatly improved by cutting more holesin the diskette jacket. This will provide more simultaneousaccess points to the disk.

    9. Diskettes may be used as coasters for beverage glasses,provided that they are properly waxed beforehand. Be sure towipe the diskettes dry before using. (see item 2 above)

    10. Never use scissors and glue to manually edit documents.The data is stored much too small for the naked eye, and youmay end up with data from some other document stuck in themiddle of your document. Razor blades and scotch tape may beused, however, provided the user is equipped with an electronmicroscope.

    11. Periodically spray diskettes with insecticide to preventsystem bugs from spreading.


    An 80-year old man was having hisannual checkup and the doctor askedhim how he was feeling. "I've never beenbetter!" he boasted. "I've got an eighteenyear old bride who's pregnant andhaving my child! What do you thinkabout that?"

    The doctor considered this for amoment, then said, "Let me tell you astory. I knew a guy who was an avidhunter. He never missed a season. Butone day, he went out in a bit of a hurry,and he accidentally grabbed his umbrella

    instead of his gun."

    The doctor continued, "So he was inthe woods, and suddenly a grizzly bearappeared in front of him! He raised uphis umbrella, pointed it at the bear andsqueezed the handle."

    "And do you know what happened?" thedoctor queried.

    Dumbfounded, the old man replied, "No."

    The doctor continued, "The beardropped dead in front of him!"

    "That's impossible!" exclaimed the oldman. "Someone else must have shotthat bear."

    "That's kind of what I'm getting at,"replied the doctor.

    Unable to attend the funeral after his father died, ason who lived far away called his brother and toldhim, "Do something nice for Dad and send me thebill."

    Later, he got a bill for $200.00, which he paid. The

    next month, he got another bill for $200.00, whichhe also paid, figuring it was some incidental ex-pense.

    Bills for $200.00 kept arriving every month, andfinally the man called his brother again to find outwhat was going on.

    "Well," said the other brother, "you said to dosomething nice for Dad. So I rented him a tuxedo."

    As an instructor in driver education at the localarea High School, I've learned that even thebrightest students can become flustered behind thewheel.

    One day I had three beginners in the car, eachscheduled to drive for 30 minutes.

    When the first student had completed his time, Iasked him to change places with one of the others.

    Gripping the wheel tightly and staring straightahead, he asked in a shaky voice, "Should I stopthe car first?"
