My husband had backed the truck up to our garage door so that we could start loading all of the boxes. Just then one of our neighbors came walking across the lawn carrying a plate full of muffins. "Isn't that thoughtful," my husband said to me. "They must have realized that we packed our kitchen stuff." The neighbor stuck out his hand and boomed, "Welcome to the neighborhood!" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Laquita Lewis, 34, Houston, Texas Woman charged in stabbing death of 4-year-old daughter Officials say a woman has been charged with capital murder in the stabbing death of her 4-year-old daughter at a Houston apartment complex. Deputy Thomas Gilliland of the Harris County Sheriff's Office says 34-year-old Laquita Lewis texted family members Sunday, telling them she had hurt her child and apologizing. Gilliland says Lewis texted from the hospital, where she had been taken after being injured in a traffic accident. The relatives contacted the sheriff's office. When deputies arrived, they found Fredricka Allen dead at the apartment around 9 p.m. Authorities believe the girl was stabbed to death earlier in the day, reports CBS affiliate KHOU. Police say Lewis stabbed the girl multiple times in the chest and left her on the floor of the master bedroom, the station reports. Lewis is being held in the Harris County jail Monday. Jail records do not list an attorney to speak for her. Gilliland says deputies haven't determined why Lewis killed her daughter, though they believe she got into a fight with her boyfriend earlier Sunday. "There's not enough words to describe the horrible death of this child," Gilliland told KHOU. BLM ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Trevor Re: Big drive defragging Dear Webby, we got a new computer in the office with a 2 TB hard drive. How often should that drive be defragged? I'm afraid it will take a whole shift to do that. Trevor Dear Trevor Partition that drive. Either do it yourself, get a program like Partition-magic, or pay somebody to do it. Make one small 20 - 30 GB partition for Windows and the software, and use the rest for storing stuff. I imagine the reason for the huge drive is to store incoming faxes. If those are just viewed and printed but not annotated or edited, then they don't change in size and rarely need defragging. That way you can just quickly defrag the small partition where Windows keeps changing things. That should only take a few minutes. Then you can defrag the big partition over night. Have FUN! DearWebby
The tall, handsome, confident gentleman walked over to the girl and made a disparaging remark about the men who had been chatting her up. She laughed gaily, "When I don't want a man's attentions," she confided, "and he asks where I live, I just say, 'I'm visiting here'." "Ha-ha," he laughed, relishing her humor. "Where do you really live?" "I'm just visiting here."

An editor at CNN was busy slaving away at spicing up the copy that came in from reporters, so that there was adequate blood and gore to attract viewers, and enough anti government slant to satisfy Soros, Hillary and the union, when a suit walked in and threw a folder on his desk with the remark: "Today, three Brazilian soldiers were killed in an accident." "Oh no!" exclaimed the editor, "that's terrible!" People at nearby desks sat stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the editor sat, head in hands. Finally, the editor looked up and asked, "How many is a Brazillion?!"

____________________________________________________ For Air Defense artillerymen, the Annual Service Practice is an important event as it's the only time they're permitted to fire live missiles. It draws not only the inspectors, but also several dignitaries. As the safety officer during one such event, I was in the control tower along with our executive officer. The exec was explaining the day's activities by the public-address system to visitors who were in a safe viewing area. Suddenly, on the firing line, a soldier lit up a cigarette. Before I can react, the exec grabbed the microphone and screamed: "PUT OUT THAT F@#$%& CIGARETTE!" Two generals, a Congressman, and the local mayor obediently responded.
