Today's International Bonehead Award: San Diego high school cheerleader charged in fatal beating of homeless man Details at Boneheads ______________________________________________________ Today, June 25, in 1876 Lt. Col. Custer and the 210 men of U.S. 7th Cavalry were killed by Sioux and Cheyenne Indians at Little Big Horn in Montana. The event is known as "Custer's Last Stand." More of what happened on this day in history. ______________________________________________________ It is by universal misunderstanding that all agree. For if, by ill luck, people understood each other, they would never agree. --- Charles Baudelaire (1821 - 1867) Life is a sexually transmitted disease. --- R. D.

He vaguely remembered similar events from his long gone by college days and he quickly spotted one of those serving trays with drinks on them, grabbed one and with an officious looking, fast stride skirted the crowd, trying not too hard at all at offering drinks to people. He had emptied almost every glass on the tray and was almost back to the counter where the full trays were in readiness for the hostesses to pick them up for serving. One of those approached the colonel for conversation. She said, "Excuse me, sir, but you seem to be a very serious man. Are you this way all the time, or is something bothering you?" "No," the colonel said, "just serious by nature." The young lady looked at his awards and decorations and said, "It looks like you have seen a lot of action." The colonel's short reply was, "Yes, you could say that." He didn't tell her that the ribbons and medals were for good attendance or completing first aid courses, and that "action" for a supply colonel in an Idaho training base was mostly in the back of the warehouse. The young lady, tiring of trying to start up a conversation, said, "You know, you should lighten up a little - relax and enjoy yourself." The colonel raised his eyes from his tray of drinks, which just happened to be in a straight line of sight with some attractive areas of her figure, and stared at her in his most serious manner. He had thought he was enjoying himself Finally the young lady said, "You know, I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but when is the last time you had sex?" The colonel looked at her and replied, "1955." She said, "Well there you go; you really need to chill out and quit taking everything so seriously - I mean, no sex since 1955, isn't that a little extreme?" The colonel, glancing at his watch, said in his matter-of-fact voice, "Oh, I don't know. It's only 2035 now! The evening is still young"

I stepped into the restroom at the Motor Vehicle Registration office and found this neatly printed sign posted over one of those hot air hand dryers: "Please push button and listen for a short message from the Minister of Transportation." ______________________________________________________ In my day, we didn't have history class.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by San Diego high school cheerleader charged in fatal beating of homeless man Hailey Suder, 18, Preston Mostrong, 19, Austin Mostrong, 20, San Diego, California A high school cheerleader has been charged in connection with the beating death of a homeless man in San Diego County, officials said. Hailey Suder, 18, pleaded not guilty Monday to two felony counts of being an accessory after the fact, according to Tanya Sierra, spokeswoman for the San Diego County district attorney’s office. Suder was dating one of two brothers charged with killing 50 year-old George Lowery, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Sheriff’s homicide investigators did not say what role she played in Lowery’s death, and which brother she was dating. Suder was a senior at Santana High School, but did not graduate with her class this month, said Catherine Martin, spokeswoman for the Grossmont Union High School District. She was a cheerleader, Martin said. Brothers Austin Mostrong, 20, and Preston Mostrong, 19, have admitted involvement in Lowery’s beating, according to Deputy Dist. Atty. George Modlin. Lowery’s wife found him unconscious April 24 near their camp in a river bottom at Chubb Lane and North Magnolia Avenue in Santee, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. Lowery suffered severe trauma after being kicked and punched in the head. He was taken to a hospital, where he died days later. Sheriff’s investigators alleged Lowery was tortured during the attack. The Mostrong brothers were on probation at the time of the murder, and their bail was set at $3 Million. Lowery’s daughter, Katey Torres, set up a GoFundMe account to raise funds for the family’s expenses. See the most-read stories in Local News this hour >> She said her mother and father had been married 25 years. “His whole life revolved around his wife, Penny,” Torres said. “Working and doing any handy work he could to provide for him and his wife and family. Her mother, she said, found her father “brutally beaten, bloody, tied up, face down and unconscious. Covered up to die.” Torres described her father as a generous man who suffered in his last days. He had a stroke and two brain hemorrhages as a result of the beating. “Although he did not have much he was always giving,” she said. “Anyone he came across loved his personality and he was always talking to people. Anyone he saw that needed help or just needed a smile he'd be there lifting your spirits. If someone was in need he would do what he could to help, no matter how hard the task. If he came across good fortune, he shared it.” ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Art RE: What is a CSS Dear Webby, I thought I knew my way around HTML and writing web pages. Like most people, I had learned by copying pages and modifying pages, but for some reason I never figured out what CSS is about. Now I got asked in an interview if I was familiar with CSS. Of course I said I was. You better teach me right quick! Art Dear Art CSS are just Cascading Style Sheets. First you define a basic corporate style of backgrounds, fonts, colors, etc. Then you refine that with exceptions. For example you could make the normal fonts Arial, size medium. But then you can define the fonts for inside table headers to be Verdana, large. And so on. All the styles can be defined in one style sheet that is then linked to in every page. You can additionally make style sheets that apply to only one page, but use the corporate stuff and only enhance it with exceptions for that page. Using CSS ensures a consistent corporate look. It also saves a lot of wear and tear on your typing finger because once all those styles are defined, they are automatic on every page that links to the style sheet. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ At a wedding rehearsal, the minister told the father of the bride, "As you give your daughter's hand to the bridegroom, you should say something nice to him." The father, a grocery-store manager, took the advice. During the wedding ceremony, he placed the bride's hand on his son-in-law's arm and said: "No deposit, no return." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Painting a Bird Bath By Elaine [7 Posts, 32 Comments] Good morning.. I suggest that you use "Patio Paints" made by DecoArt- they are strictly for indoor/outdoor projects and I do have a few instructions leaflets for birdbaths from Terra Cotta Pots and it suggests to use these type paints. Good luck..oh, you can find them at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. I have not seen them at any Walmart. Best is a Porch & Floor paint. For a bird bath use light colors. Battleship Grey or Light Grey seem to work best. Somehow birds feel more comfortable with those colors than with dark or bright colors. Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ Recently a large seminar was held for ministers in training. Among the guests were many well-known motivational speakers. One such boldly approached the pulpit and, gathering the entire crowd's attention, said, "The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman that wasn't my wife!" The crowd was shocked! He followed up by saying, "And that woman was my mother!" The crowd burst into laughter and he gave his speech, which went over well. About a week later one of the ministers who had attended the seminar decided to use that joke in his sermon. As he shyly approached the pulpit one sunny Sunday, he tried to rehearse the joke in his head. It seemed a bit foggy to him this morning. Getting to the microphone he said loudly, "The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman that was not my wife!" His congregation sat shocked. After standing there for almost 10 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, the pastor finally blurted out, "...and I can't remember who she was!" ___________________________________________________
Bathroom prank
____________________________________________________ Each Friday night I drove my wife to the train station so she could go visit her sister who was ill. Ten minutes later, MY sister arrived by train so that she could manage our house over the weekend while my wife was gone and I was out coaching. On Sundays this procedure worked in reverse with my sister departing by train ten minutes before my wife arrived. One evening after my sister left and while I awaited my wife's arrival, a porter sauntered over. "Mister," he said, "you sure have some system going! But one of these days the 5:25 train is gonna be late and you're gonna get caught!" ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Ruth for this one: A woman was helping her computer-illiterate husband set up his computer, and at the appropriate point in the process, told him that he would now need to choose and enter a 6 character or longer password... Something he will use to log on. The husband was in a rather amorous mood and figured he would try for the shock effect to bring this to his wife's attention. So, when the computer asked him to enter his password, he made it plainly obvious to his wife that he was keying in "p e n i s". His wife fell off her chair laughing when the computer replied PASSWORD REJECTED. NOT LONG ENOUGH ____________________________________________________
