An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Angela Renee Woodworth, 45, of 17 Meadows Drive, Interlachen Florida Kids Flee From Car Because Of Florida Mom's Drunk Driving An Interlachen woman was arrested Tuesday night on multiple charges after her child and three of his friends ran into a Gainesville Steak ‘n Shake and told a customer that the mother was driving drunk and that they jumped out of the car in fear, according to an arrest report. Angela Renee Woodworth, 45, of 17 Meadows Drive, was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and four counts of child neglect, the Gainesville Police Department reported. The incident occurred at the restaurant at 3714 SW 42nd St. about 8:30 p.m. The report states that a customer called 911 regarding the comments of the children who ran inside and began crying. When an officer arrived the children -- all age 11 -- appeared to be terrified, the report states. The woman’s son told police that they had been to a park, a Chinese restaurant, bowling and to the mall. Woodworth drank two pitchers of beer at the bowling alley and a margarita at Ruby Tuesday at the mall, the boy told police. As they left the mall, he told police, she was swerving all over the road and hit a pole, the report states. They jumped out when she stopped the car. The other children all gave the same account. Police said Woodworth said she had one pitcher of beer but denied going to Ruby Tuesday. The report states her speech was slurred, she smelled of alcohol and she was “obviously intoxicated.” She was not charged with drunk driving. Her car was wrecked. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Andy Re: FireFox causes shutdowns Dear Webby, I an a very happy subscriber to both yours and Ophelia's newsletters. Some time ago, I foolishly allowed Firefox to upgrade me to a newer version. I now have windows shutdowns. I did stop auto upgrades. I am now being asked to upgrade to a new version that promises to stop the shutdowns. Is there another browser that is comparable to the good old firefox? What do you think? Andy Dear Andy I use Chrome most of the time, and FireFox for printing. Use PC Mechanic to fix your registry and performance problems, and there won't be any shutdowns. It is at I shut down when I have to because of program updates about once a month, and Chrome and Firefox work well side by side. I use the current versions of both of those. Only with Skype do I refuse updates beyond Have FUN!

Napkins were 25 cents a pack. By teenaS [1] ______________________________________________________ A Sunday School teacher of pre-schoolers was concerned that his students might be a little confused about Jesus Christ because of the Christmas season emphasis on His birth. He wanted to make sure they understood that the birth of Jesus occurred for real. He asked his class, "Where is Jesus today?" Steven raised his hand and said, "He's in heaven." Mary was called on and answered, "He's in my heart." Little Johnny, waving his hand furiously, blurted out, "I know, I know! He's in our bathroom!!!" The whole class got very quiet, looked at the teacher, and waited for a response. The teacher was completely at a loss for a few very long seconds. Finally, he gathered his wits and asked Little Johnny how he knew this. Little Johnny said, "Well... every morning, my father gets up, bangs on the bathroom door, and yells, "Jesus Christ!!, are you still in there !!"

The permanent location for it is at _____________________________________________________ A man passed out in a dead faint as he came out of his front door onto the porch. Someone called 911. When the paramedics arrived, they helped him regain consciousness and asked if he knew what caused him to faint. "It was enough to make anybody faint," he said. "My son asked me for the keys to the garage, and instead of driving the car out, he came out with the SNOW SHOVEL !"
