Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, August 17

Today I have to go to Calgary for injections into my
eyeballs. That means no newsletters on Friday, Saturday 
and Sunday. Enjoy your vacation!

>From Cajunbuckeye
Now I surely do miss your paper while¶  you are gone getting
your eyes medicated and all, but if I may suggest could you
not run reruns of your paper maybe the highest asked
question¶  of the week or month or so I am so bored when I
have to waitt till Monday to get my dose of Dear Webby 
have a great weekennd

Dear Cajunbuckeye
The problem is not with the writing, but with the sending.
To prevent unauthorized hackers from abusing the sending
program, it is quite tricky.

That is the reason even Ophelia's newsletters get paused for
three days. I can't delegate the sending. I tried that one

With an average of $30 in donations per good month, I
definitely can't pay anybody to do that for me.

You probably have saved old ones in your archive. Just scroll
through your archive.

Have Fun!

Half of the forest belongs to a Kentucky farmer, while the other half belongs to a Tennessee man. One day, while out for a walk in the woods, the Tennessee man comes across a wolf caught in a trap. He rushes back to his house and calls his Kentucky neighbor. "There's one of your wolves caught in a trap on my side of the forest." "How do you know it's one of *our* wolves?" the Kentucky farmer asked. "Well," the Tennessee man replied, "he's already chewed off three of his legs and he's still trapped." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Anyone who's ever ridden in a cab in Washington DC knows they're some of the world's most brazen drivers.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Daniel Gaines, 35, Camdenton, Mo Domestic Assault Suspect Rams Patrol Car A man from Camdenton is jailed after he allegedly assaulted his wife and rammed a deputy patrol car while attempting to evade authorities. 35-year-old Daniel Gaines is accused of hitting his wife in the face and choking her on Monday night. Deputies got a 911 call at 10:20 p.m. Monday about the domestic disturbance off Hidden Drive in Camdenton but Gaines had left the scene before police arrived. Deputies located the man near Highway 54 and the North Highway 5 exit, according to a press release. Deputies with the Camden County Sheriff's Department briefly stopped Gaines' red 2010 F-150 truck around 11:53 p.m. before he sped off quickly. One deputy attempted to pass Gaines during the chase. Gaines rammed the patrol car numerous times on the dry gap bridge prior to the Niangua Bridge, eventually disabling the patrol vehicle. He then continued driving towards his home, through a ditch which eventually brought the chase to an end. Gaines then began to, as the press release states, "advance(d) on the deputies at which time a deputy's taser was deployed." He was taken into custody and charged with first-degree assault, domestic assault, property damage, resisting arrest, and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Gaines is being held without bond in Camden County Jail. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Nadia Re: Voice message email Dear Webby, I keep getting these emails with "Click attachment to listen to Voice Message" supposedly an attachment from some number, name unavailable. Somehow I have a hunch that it probably is not safe to click on that, and besides, I don't like being told to do something by somebody I don't know. What's the story? Nadia Dear Nadia Just dump it. If you had MailWasher, it would have dumped it for you. That is malware from the "Bad Shit" category, to use kind and diplomatic language. You can even make a filter. If mail is FROM vm@( then delete it, automatically, without even showing it in the list. After that, you will never see that crap again. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Bread Crumbs Save leftover bread in a bag in your freezer. Bagels, baguettes, biscuits, crackers, rolls, sandwich bread all work well. When the bag gets full or you need some bread crumbs, process the bread into very fine crumbs in your food processor or blender. Then store the leftover crumbs in the freezer. Tip provided by If you want gourmet crumbs (coarser, and from mostly crust) make bread sticks from any left over bread dough, let them dry a few days and then smash them to crumbs in a gallon jar by hitting them with a piece of wood. The difference in taste is well worth the effort! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

To my delight, however, I found just what I was looking for. Waiting in the line to pay, I noticed a young woman behind me holding the same item. This confirmed what I suspected all along: despite being over 50, I still have a very "with it" attitude. "I see we have the same taste," I said proudly to the 20- something behind me. "Yes," she replied. "I'm getting this for my grandmother."

____________________________________________________ At the construction site of a new church, the contractor stopped to chat with one of his workmen. "Patty," he asked casually, "didn't you once tell me that you had a brother who was a bishop?" "That I did." "And you are a bricklayer! It sure is a funny world. Things in life aren't divided equally, are they?" "No, that they ain't," agreed Patty, as he proudly slapped the mortar along the line of bricks. "My poor brother is such a klutz, he couldn't do this to save his life!" ____________________________________________________
