Zack squirms so much it is impossible to get a decent night's sleep when he is with us. Exhausted, I collapsed into his bed instead, where I slept better than I had in years. The next morning, I asked my wife, "Why was Zack in bed with you?" "Oh," she replied, shrugging, "he wet his bed, and I was too tired to change his sheets." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ >From David My mother once gave me two sweaters for Christmas.

You didn't like the other one?" ______________________________________________________ From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tyler HaguewoodTyler Haguewood, 33, Hillsboro, Oregon Oregon man arrested for stealing street sweeper An Oregon man did not make a clean getaway early Sunday after stealing a street sweeper and leading police on a 10- mile chase. According to cops, Tyler Haguewood, 33, jumped into the street sweeper around 3:45 AM after the driver, a private contractor, exited the running vehicle to “use a handheld blower in order to clean an area where the street-sweeper could not reach.” Haguewood then drove off in the Isuzu street sweeper. Upon learning of the theft, cops in Hillsboro, a city 20 miles outside Portland, quickly located the vehicle on the deserted pre-dawn streets. “Officers activated their overhead emergency lights. The street-sweeper failed to yield,” cops say. For 10 miles, officers pursued the street sweeper, which topped out at 65 mph. The chase ended after Haguewood drove over spike strips placed in the roadway by Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies. Pictured above, Haguewood was taken into custody without incident and charged with multiple counts, including auto theft and attempting to elude police. He is also facing a parole violation charge in connection with a prior conviction for aggravated harassment. Haguewood is being held in the Washington County jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Vera Re: Cant copy from Windows calculator Dear Webby How come I can't copy from the calculator in Windows by using the mouse ? Vera /i> Dear Vera The Windows calculator always had that shortcoming, even in Windows 3.0 because basically it is a DOS program. Just treat it like a DOS program and imagine you had no mouse. When done calculating, type ALT E C Then with ALT TAB jump back to the program you were using before using the calculator. CTRL V pastes the result that you have copied from the calculator. It is actually a lot faster than taking a hand off the keyboard and mousing around. There are a number of calculator programs available that let you copy with the mouse, however, my recommendation is to use a spreadsheet like Calc or Excel, whether you are a mouse addict or prefer hot-keys. With a spreadsheet you see all your entries, you can correct typos no matter how far back they are, do sorting, searching, show numbers below or above a limit that you set in a different color, and thousands of other tricks. I normally have a spreadsheet open and narrowed to about 1/10 of the screen on the left side, and I use that as a calculator, scratch-pad and even calculating calendar. You really get spoiled once you get comfortable with spreadsheets. Have FUN! DearWebby
's colleague at a package-processing center was trapped in a small rest room by a faulty lock. When he was finally discovered, and another worker were able to open the door with some difficulty. The lock was still jammed, so they blocked the door open while a maintenance worker was called. A bit later, noticed the door was closed again. He jiggled the doorknob and an unfamiliar voice from inside called, "Get me outa here!" "Don't worry," replied, "Maintenance should be sending somebody shortly." "They did," said the voice.

He threw down his palette, took her in his arms, and kissed her. She pushed him away. "Maybe your other models let you kiss them," she said, "but I'm not that kind!" "Actually, I've never tried to kiss a model before," he protested. "Really?" she said, softening. "Well, how many models have there been?" "Four so far," he replied, thinking back. "A jug, two apples, a tractor, and a vase." ___________________________________________________

Three rabbinical students were caught by the Rabbi gambling and drinking in the company of undesirable characters before the sun set on the evening of the Sabbath. The Rabbi called them into his study the next day. They all confessed to having given in to weakness, and admitted that they deserved punishment. The Rabbi thought for a moment, then went into his kitchen and brought back three bags of dried peas. "Put these in your shoes," he told them, "and walk on them for a week, to remind yourself how hard life can be when you turn away from your faith." A few days later the three students met. One was limping terribly, had dark circles under his eyes, and looked very tired. The others seemed much as he had been the week before. The first student said, "How is it that you are walking so freely? Didn't you do as the Rabbi told us and put the peas in your shoes?" "Of course I did," said the second. "How could I disobey the Rabbi? I just chose to wear a different pair of shoes." The third student interrupted, "The rabbi expressly stated that we were to WALK on the peas." The first student inquired how he could be walking so well if he was walking on the peas. The third student smiled and said, "I boiled them first."
