Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater. --- Gail Godwin If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. --- Henry David Thoreau ____________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A dinner speaker was in such a hurry to get to his engagement that when he arrived and sat down at the head table, he suddenly realized that he had forgotten his false teeth. Turning to the man next to him, he said, "I forgot my teeth." The man said, "No problem." With that, he reached into his pocket and pulled out a pair of false teeth. "Try these," he said. The speaker tried them. "Too loose," he said. The man then said, "I have another pair... try these." The speaker tried them and responded, "Too tight." The man was not taken back at all. He then said, "I have one more pair of false teeth... try them." The speaker said, "They fit perfectly." With that he ate his meal and gave his address. After the dinner meeting was over, the speaker went over to thank the man who had helped him. "I want to thank you for coming to my aid. Where is your office? I've been looking for a good dentist." The man replied, "I'm not a dentist. I'm the local undertaker." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

Tech Support Pits From: Elizabeth Re: What to do about spoofs Dear Webby, The weird characters you mentioned today also come from mail written with Microsoft WEIRD and Microsoft Live Mail. There apparently ARE ways to fix that and force their crap to use standard encoding, but one would have to read the instwuckshions. That unfortunately is not fashionable with THAT crowd. Now for today's question: There is a real epidemic of spoofs coming into my mail box. I know they are just caused by a virus, or rather by people who are too stupid to protect their machines from viruses, and I don't blame ebay or PayPal or Mypostcards or Hallmark or Citibank for being spoofed about, but isn't there something that can be done about it? We can put people into space and eavesdrop on terrorists, you'd think these scammers could be nailed with today's technology! I know the government is useless and the politicians are busy trying to guarantee themselves a warm place to shit and have other prioities than the tax payers, but can't the IT industry come up with a solution? Yeah, I know, look at Vista! Some solution! In the meantime, what do YOU suggest for dealing with this unholy crap? Elizabeth Dear Elizabeth Yes, I know that the government COULD use the spamcops to identify the scammers, but as you said, they have other priorities, and most likely some bleeding heart liberal judges would make identifying scammers just as illegal as eavesdropping on terrorists. Look how it took Russian hackers to expose Broom Hilda's crimes, which are now ignored and the witch hunt is about who might have gotten groped or laid by Trump. As mentioned before, I use Mailwasher. It recognizes those spoofs and marks them as KNOWN and to be deleted. When you hit F6 to process, it dumps them without ever downloading more than a few lines of the header. You can even make filters. For example, if you don't know anybody in Russia or Nigeria, then you can set it so that mail from there gets dumped without even showing in the list. MailWasher of course looks at the actual and hidden sender address. It completely ignores the faked one pretending to be your bank. A lot of scammers forge your own address as the sender address, even the underlying hidden address. No Problem, Mailwasher can deal with that too. I have used the same addresses since 1993, and they are probably on ever spammer's CD in the entire world. That does not bother me one bit. MailWasher takes care of them all. Have FUN DearWebby

SCIENCE: BREAD IS DANGEROUS 1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread users. 2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread- consuming households score below average on standardized tests. 3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations. 4. More than 90 percent of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread. 5. Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water to eat, begged for bread after as little as two days. 6. Bread is often a "gateway" food item, leading the user to "harder" items such as butter, jelly, peanut butter, and even cream cheese. 7. Bread has been proven to absorb water. Since the human body is more than 90 percent water, it follows that eating bread could lead to your body being taken over by this absorptive food product, turning you into a soggy, gooey, bread-pudding person. 8. Newborn babies can choke on bread. 9. Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 450 degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an adult in less than two minutes. 10. Most American bread eaters are utterly unable to distinguish between significant scientific fact and meaningless AlGorian statistical babbling.

On a flight to Florida, I was preparing my notes for one of the parent-education seminars I conduct as an educational psychologist. The elderly woman sitting next to me explained that she was returning to Miami after having spent two weeks visiting her six children, 18 grandchildren and ten great- grandchildren in Boston. Then she inquired what I did for a living. I told her, fully expecting her to question me for free pro- fessional advice. Instead she sat back, picked up a magazine and said, "If there's anything you want to know, just ask me." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Unusual Wrapping Ideas Use linens or towels to wrap gifts and the wrapping will be a nice gift too.

During the return flight we were given gourmet brownies and cookies. Not hungry, I decided to save them for later, so I placed them in a sick bag. After the plane landed I got up to leave and a stewardess approached me. "Sir, would you like for me to dispose of that for you?" I said, "No thanks, I'm saving it for my kids." ___________________________________________________

Tech Support Pits From Barb Re: Weird symbols in mail that came from Outlook Dear Webby, In mail, that originated from me and shows in people's replies, there are weird symbols like  or É. They show even in Gmail, if a portion of it came from my other machine, that has Outlook on it. What is the cause of that? Thanks Barb Dear Barb That is just Microslop. You must have seen complaints regarding "winmail.dat", that most people nowadays delete automatically right on the server. Win mail.dat is sent by Outlook and Microsoft WORD to supply supplementary font information so that other Outlook users see left-wing quotes, curly quotes and similar non-standard characters, that look cutesy on widdle goilies emails, but are just a nuisance on regular standard programs. That is why Microsoft adds a secret "Winmail.dat" file to supply the extra information. Well, almost everybody dumps the thilly winmail.dat right on the server. It is just a useless nuisance. IF, and only IF, the receiving victim has Microsoft Office or Outlook, then they can use the winmail.dat to tilt the quotes and do a few other semi-cute stunts. Standard programs just show whatever letters come through. Your Outlook uses É (plus winmail dat translator) to produce a left wing quote, There IS a setting in Outluck to make it send standard characters and forget the left wing quotes and curly quotes. Microsoft calls the left wing quotes "Smart Quotes". The rest of us call them "Microslop". Here is how to turn the Microslop off and get standard characters:https://www.extendoffice.com/documents/outlook/2084- outlook-disable-turn-off-smart-quotes.html Have FUN DearWebby

___________________________________________________ The police in a sleepy Alberta town were notified that a very panicked citizen was at a local garage screaming in terror. When they arrived, they met the man, who had peed his pants, could hardly stand, while he pointed at a garage. They could detect no smell of alcohol. The man blithered there was a was a wild lion loose in that garage. The monster had chased him, snarling. He was so frightened the officers took him seriously, drawing their guns, crept cautiously into the garage After a few minutes they came out, hanging onto each other, barely able to talk for laughing. They called the man over. "We found your lion, take a look." Out walked the most embarrassed dog in the world. He was the garage guard dog. It was painful to look at him. Yellow, huge, he had once sported long shaggy hair. The owner had taken him to a groomer to be shaved. He had also given the groomer a bottle of strong homemade wine. The groomer went creative. He shaved the poor dog, leaving a huge ruff around his neck, a puff on the end of the tail, plus styled huge furry boots on his feet. He did indeed look like a lion. Sort of. A crowd gathered, everyone shaking with mirth. The lion dog had enough. He opened his mouth and roared. The crowd scattered, the cops leaped into their car. The owner walked out of the garage, wiping his hands on a greasy rag. He grinned at the dog, "Atta boy, you should get a medal for bravery under fire." ___________________________________________________

Furious parents shared the shocking social media rant in which Carly Clark said she was ‘not sorry’.

Tech Support Pits From Bill Re: Seconday mail account problem Dear Webby, It's Bill again. Now Eudora won't retrieve mail from my secondary address. It should be the same PW as my "dominant" personality. "Dominant" works. The secondary gives an error message "ERR Authentication failure, mate". I would appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks. Bill Dear Bill Eudora has been able to handle dominant plus secondary accounts since about 1993, however, when semi-skilled and sooty summer help at the ISP messes around, it can turn into a real nuisance. Those kids tend to assume that everybody gets onto the Internet with a SillyPhone, like they are, so they keep changing the settings at the ISP side. Instead of coping with the silly twits, most people simply set the secondary email to automatically forward to the dominant or primary email. That way you get everything at your dominant email address, and don't have to worry about all the others. They simply show up. You still see which address the mail has been sent to.

_____________________________________________________ Many many years ago when I was twenty three, I got married to a widow who was pretty as could be. This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red. My father fell in love with her, and soon the two were wed. This made my dad my son-in-law And changed my very life. My daughter was my mother, For she was my father's wife. To complicate the matters worse, Although it brought me joy, I soon became the father Of a bouncing baby boy. My little baby then became A brother-in-law to dad. And so became my uncle, Though it made me very sad. For if he was my uncle, Then that also made him brother To the widow's grown-up daughter Who, of course, was my step-mother. Father's wife then had a son, Who kept them on the run. And he became my grandson, For he was my daughter's son. My wife is now my mother's mother And it makes me blue. Because, although she is my wife, She is my grandma too. If my wife is my grandmother, Then I am her grandchild. And every time I think of it, It simply drives me wild. For now I have become The strangest case you ever saw. As the husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa. ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by (Previous mug shot) Maxwell Elder, 20, St. Augustine, Florida Crook on Fentanyl gets jaw broken after biting deputy A St. Augustine man was arrested Tuesday after a scuffle with St. Johns County deputies, leaving him with a broken jaw. Maxwell Elder, 20, of St. Augustine, was arrested Tuesday and is being charged with possession of narcotics, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, resisting with violence and battery on a law enforcement officer. According to a St. Johns County offense report, police were called by a neighbor who asked them to give Elder a trespass warning. After the call, the report says Elder stole a $300 extension ladder, but the neighbor did not want to press charges against Elder. Once a deputy arrived to his home, he said he found Elder in the driveway. When the responding deputy asked if Elder knew why he was there, Elder responded "Are you with me or against me?" The deputy said he noticed Elder was holding a multi-colored glass pipe with a baggie in his left hand. The report says the deputy immediately secured Elder in handcuffs and took away the suspected narcotics. When the deputy was searching him, Elder told the deputy he had a patch on his leg for bug bites, the report said. According to the report, the deputy suspected it was a fentanyl patch and called fire and rescue to respond to the scene. An additional deputy arrived and, according to the report, attempted to help the initial responder arrest Elder. When the deputies tried to place Elder on the rear of a patrol vehicle, Elder "became enraged for no apparent reason," banging his head forcefully against the back window of the car, the report said. Deputies said Elder tried kicking one of them in the groin, so they took him to the ground to prevent him from injuring himself. That's when Elder bit one of the deputies, the report said. The deputy stated, "Stop biting me." The report said the deputy who was being bitten then attempted to deliver a brachial stun and managed to get Elder to let go. St. Johns County Fire Rescue informed the deputy that the patch was fentanyl, the report said, and Elder was placed under arrest and taken to Flagler Hospital for medical clearance. Doctors told deputies that Elder sustained a broken jaw from the incident, as well as a cut on the inside of his lip, stating it was likely a result from the attempted brachial stun, according to the report.

By the time a Marine pulled into a little town, every hotel room was taken. "You've got to have a room somewhere," he pleaded. "Or just a bed, I don't care where." "Well, I do have a double room with one occupant - an Air Force guy," admitted the manager, "and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained. I'm not sure it'd be worth it to you." "No problem," the tired Marine assured him. "I'll take it." The next morning the Marine came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. "How'd you sleep?" asked the manager. "Never better." The manager was impressed. "No problem with the other guy snoring, then?" "Nope, I shut him up in no time," said the Marine. "How'd you manage that?" asked the manager. "He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came into the room," the Marine explained. "I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, said, 'Goodnight, beautiful,' and he sat up all night watching me."

The first nun replied that she would handle that without a problem. She picked up a six-pack and took it to the cashier.

Is there anything that can be done? Thank you, Bev. Compaq Dear Beverly That sounds like a monitor that needs what we techs call "Percussive Maintenance". You whack the monitor a good slap with your hand. Then it will usually behave for a while.

Once the oven has cooled, it will aid in cleaning up the spill that caused the fire. The same applies for stove-top and barbecue. You can also use sand, dirt from a potted plant, ANYTHING EXCEPT WATER! Never use water on a grease fire. Water will turn the oil or grease into a napalm like substance and spaltter it all over. It turns one little fire into many big ones instantly. Most people have an open box of baking soda in the fridge and cupboard to absorb odors.

The old farmer next door was out one day and saw the new neighbor planting in his garden. The farmer watched as the man would dig a hole, set a tomato plant and pour in a shot of whiskey. The farmer couldn’t help but ask what he was planting. “Stewed tomatoes,” was the reply. ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Earle Gustavas Stevens, 69, Vero Beach, Florida Driver told cops he only drank at stop signs An inebriated motorist assured Florida police that he was not drinking while driving, but only swigging from a bottle of Jim Beam bourbon when his vehicle paused at stop signs and traffic signals, according to a police report. Earle Gustavas Stevens, 69, was arrested for driving his Mercury Grand Marquis while under the influence. The Vero Beach resident, now free on $1500 bond in advance of a July 31 arraignment, was nabbed after a driver called 911 to report that Stevens’s car repeatedly tapped her bumper while they were in a McDonald’s drive- thru lane. When a sheriff’s deputy contacted Stevens, he reeked of alcohol, was slurring his words, and had ”red and glossy” eyes. On the Mercury’s passenger seat was a bottle of Jim Beam, from which Stevens admitted he had been drinking. Asked if he was drinking in the auto, Stevens replied, “No.” He then explained he was enjoying the bourbon at “Stop signs.” The deputy further noted Stevens’s distinction when it came to drinking while driving: “He further explained that he was not drinking while the car was moving and only when he stopped for stop signs and traffic signals.” It was their fault for having so many stop signs. Stevens was arrested after failing a series of field sobriety tests, as first reported by Will Greenlee of Treasure Coast Newspapers. A breath test recorded Stevens’s blood alcohol content at nearly twice the legal limit. In addition to a drunk driving charge, Stevens was cited for driving without a license. Stevens, seen above, reportedly told cops that he had two “prior DUI charges from Missouri.”
Tech Support Pits From: David Re: Which digital camera is best? Dear Webby, Which digital camera is best? And which parts of them are the most important criteria? What is better, Canon or Nikon? David Dear David The most important criteria is your budget. If you get too close to the limit of it, the best camera is always not going to be quite good enough. Second most important is lens size. The larger the lens, the more light the chip has to work with. Third is the electronics, especially how the camera interpretes the analog signals into digital. Canon and Nikon are best there, with the rest of them seemingly a class or more below. Fourth is Optical Zoom. Forget digital zoom, that's just cropping the picture, enlarging it digitally and making it coarse. Forget about the number of Megapixels. That number is usually just a number picked by an advertising editor and in the small print they admit that it is "equivalent to so many Megapixels". 3 Megapixels are fine, but at around 5 you start wasting space on the memory chip and get into problems with working on the pictures in full size. How much free and available RAM do you have on your computer? There is no point in paying for 12 or more megapixels and then having to set the camera to take pictures at 1600x1200, ( 1.9 Megapixels ). More pixels don't extend you reach into the dark at all. It's the same amount of light split into more real and calculated pixels. I am a purist and don't use flash. It makes pictures flat. I found that I can reach much farther into the dark with an ancient Canon with a big lens. Canon versus Nikon is a religious question. They are both so good, that the skill of the photographer makes a much bigger difference than the brand. Each has it's own distinct peculiarities, that you can take advantage of, once you get familiar with your camera. But the differences are not big enough that anybody would buy one of each. Remeber the differences in film in the old days? Kodak had a warm tint, Fuji and Agfa a colder tint. For camp fire parties you used kodak, for fishing you used Agfa or Fuji. Canon has a warmer tint, Nikon a colder tint. It is easy enough to adust that on the computer. Personally, I prefer the warmer Canon interpretation. Have FUN DearWebby

Before my son and I boarded our flight home, I hefted my carry-on bag onto the security check conveyor belt. The guard's eyes widened as he watched the monitor. He asked what I had in the bag, then slowly pulled out the six-by-three-inch black box covered with dials and switches. Other travelers, sensing trouble, vacated the area. "A metronome," I replied weakly, as my son cringed in embarrassment. "It's a talking metronome," I insisted. "Look, I'll show you." I took the box and flipped a switch, realizing that I had no idea how it worked. "One, two, three, four," it said. Everyone breathed a sigh of relief.

Soon she started leaning forward, so the family members again grabbed her, then tied a pillowcase around her waist to hold her up.

_____________________________________________________ GOD: Frank , you know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going on down there on the planet? What happened to the dandelions, violets, thistle and stuff I started eons ago? I had a perfect no-maintenance garden plan. Those plants grow in any type of soil, withstand drought and multiply with abandon. The nectar from the long-lasting blossoms attracts butterflies, honey bees and flocks of songbirds. I expected to see a vast garden of colours by now. But, all I see are these green rectangles. Saint FRANCIS: It's the tribes that settled there, Lord. The Suburbanites. They started calling your flowers "weeds" and went to great lengths to kill them and replace them with grass. GOD: Grass? But, it's so boring. It's not colourful. It doesn't attract butterflies, birds and bees; only grubs and sod worms. It's sensitive to temperatures. Do these Suburbanites really want all that grass growing there? ST. FRANCIS : Apparently so, Lord. They go to great pains to grow it and keep it green. They begin each spring by fertilizing grass and poisoning any other plant that crops up in the lawn. GOD: The spring rains and warm weather probably make grass grow really fast. That must make the Suburbanites happy. ST. FRANCIS : Apparently not, Lord. As soon as it grows a little, they cut it --sometimes twice a week. GOD: They cut it? Do they then bail it like hay? ST. FRANCIS : Not exactly, Lord. Most of them rake it up and put it in bags. GOD: They bag it? Why? Is it a cash crop? Do they sell it? ST. FRANCIS : No, Sir, just the opposite. They pay to throw it away. GOD: Now, let me get this straight. They fertilize grass so it will grow. And, when it does grow, they cut it off and pay to throw it away? ST. FRANCIS : Yes, Sir. GOD: These Suburbanites must be relieved in the summer when we cut back on the rain and turn up the heat. That surely slows the growth and saves them a lot of work. ST. FRANCIS: You aren't going to believe this, Lord. When the grass stops growing so fast, they drag out hoses and pay more money to water it so they can continue to mow it and pay to get rid of it. GOD: What nonsense. At least they kept some of the trees. That was a sheer stroke of genius, if I do say so myself. The trees grow leaves in the spring to provide beauty and shade in the summer. In the autumn, they fall to the ground and form a natural blanket to keep moisture in the soil and protect the trees and bushes. It's a natural cycle of life. ST. FRANCIS: You better sit down, Lord. The Suburbanites have drawn a new circle. As soon as the leaves fall, they rake them into great piles and pay to have them hauled away. GOD: No. What do they do to protect the shrub and tree roots in the winter to keep the soil moist and loose? ST. FRANCIS: After throwing away the leaves, they go out and buy something which they call mulch. They haul it home and spread it around in place of the leaves. GOD: And where do they get this mulch? ST. FRANCIS: They cut down trees and grind them up to make the mulch. GOD: Enough! I don't want to think about this anymore. St. Catherine, you're in charge of the arts. What movie have you scheduled for us tonight? ST. CATHERINE: "Dumb and Dumber", Lord. It's a story about.... GOD: Never mind, I think I just heard the whole story from St. Francis. ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Alejandro Alvarez Villegas, 32, Chula Vista, California San Diego chainsaw attacker is illegal alien who has been deported 11 times A California man who attacked his wife with a chainsaw is an illegal alien who has been deported at least 11 times since 2005, immigration officials confirmed Friday Alvarez has a long record of being deported and returning to the U.S., according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). “Department of Homeland Security databases indicate Mr. Alvarez- Villegas is a serial immigration violator who has been removed from the United States at least 11 times since 2005,” an ICE spokesperson said, according to NBC7 News in San Diego. The incident began Wednesday, when police in the Los Angeles suburb of Whittier responded to a domestic violence call and found Alvarez’s wife inside their home with chest wounds caused by a chainsaw. The next day, Chula Vista police pulled over Alvarez in an SUV, that had been reported stolen in Los Angeles. Alvarez allegedly tried to ram a police car during the traffic stop, but officers were able to arrest him without any injuries, Chula Vista Police Lt. Kenny Heinz said, according to NBC7. Rumors that he is claiming sanctuary and will be running on the Democratic ticket for governor of Mexifornia have not been confirmed yet.
Tech Support Pits From: Angela Re: Computer positioning Dear Webby, I have a question about the CPU unit of my desk top. I am rearranging my work/study area and was wondering if it is safe to lay the CPU down on its side and set my printer on top of it gain more space on my computer desk. I do not want to place it on the floor because I have too many animals living in my house and do not fully trust them all to behave with it on the floor. Angela Dear Angela The CPU doesn't care, and the hard drives don't care as long as you don't put it with the front side up. The most important consideration is good air flow behind it. Don't shove it into a desk hutch cubbyhole, no matter which way you turn it. Laying flat, with the removable side cover side up, is just fine. That is actually better than standing upright on the floor, where the main air intake at the front bottom sucks in all the dust bunnies and pet hairs off the floor and drastically reduces cooling. Yes, I know it's stupid, but they don't want computers to last forever. Try to lay it flat on the left rear corner of your desk, with the former bottom pointing away from you. That way it sucks fresh air from the left of the desk. Especially n summer, cooling of the computer is very important. While you are moving it, pop the side cover open and vacuum it out. If you are scared of large herds of dust bunnies, get somebody else to do it, but don't neglect that chore! Have FUN DearWebby

As I drove into a parking lot, I noticed that a pickup truck with a dog sitting behind the wheel was rolling toward a female pedestrian. She seemed oblivious, so I hit my horn to get her attention. She looked up just in time to jump out of the way of the truck's path, and the vehicle bumped harmlessly into the curb and stopped. I rushed to the woman's side to see if she was all right. "I'm fine," she assured me, "but I hate to think what could have happened to me if that dog hadn't honked."

Thanks to Kati for this story: Bill and Sam, two elderly friends, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons, watch the squirrels and discuss world problems. One day Bill didn't show up. Sam didn't think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something. But after Bill hadn't shown up for a week or so, Sam really got worried. However, since the only time they ever got together was at the park, Sam didn't know where Bill lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him. A month had passed, and Sam figured he had seen the last of Bill, but one day, Sam approached the park and -- lo and behold! --there sat Bill! Sam was very excited and happy to see him and told him so. Then he said, "For crying out loud Bill, what in the world happened to you?" Bill replied, "I have been in jail." "Jail?" cried Sam. "What in the world for?" "Well," Bill said, "you know Sue, that cute little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where I sometime go?" "Yeah," said Sam, "I remember her. What about her?" "Well, one day she filed rape charges against me; and, at 89 years old, I was so proud that when I got into court, I pleaded 'guilty' and the judge gave me 30 days for perjury." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com A Mail Box for Garden Tools A handy place to store pruning shears and small garden tools is in an old mail box.

>From Stormy Hanging wall paper is messy work. I was struggling to hold a long wet piece of paper in place, when it slipped out of my grasp. My cat and dog just happened to be sitting underneath the ladder. The long gooey thing landed right on them. The startled critters leaped up, crashed into the wall, getting really tangled together. From the barking and hissing, I could tell they were each blaming the other. Stuck together inside the paper, they crashed across the room, thumped over the doorstep, out the open door to tumble across the lawn. The harder they tried to separate, the tighter the paper stuck to their fur. A group of young kids were passing by on their way home from school. They stared at the noisy antics of my unfortunate pets. Two little boys helped me untangle the poor animals. They talked to each other for a moment, then started to giggle. "Hey lady, can we have a piece of this stuff?" I asked why, telling them it had to be wet and put on a wall. "That's okay, we can put water on it." I suggested that their parents might not like them sticking it to a wall," Then I added, "You aren't thinking of putting this on your dog or cat are you?" The giggling turned up a notch. "No, we want to throw it on our sister when she's kissing her boyfriend in the living room!" ____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ The following are copies of ACTUAL written statements submitted to the police on report forms. (Or at least they claim to be ACTUAL statements. You be the judge.) The drivers were instructed to give a brief statement on the particulars of the accident in their own words. Coming home, I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don't know. I pulled away from the side of the road, glanced at my Mother-in-law and headed over the embankment. The gentleman behind me struck me on the backside. He then went to rest in the bush with just his rear end showing. In an attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole. I had been driving my car for forty years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident. An invisible car came out of nowhere, struck my vehicle and vanished. The pedestrian had no idea which direction to go, so I ran over him. I saw the slow moving, sad faced old gentleman as he bounced off the hood of my car. The guy was all over the road, I had to swerve a number of times before I hit him. To avoid hitting the bumper of the car in front, I struck the pedestrian. I was sure the old fellow would never make it to the other side of the roadway when I struck him. My girlfriend kissed me. I lost control and woke up in the hospital. When I saw I could not avoid a collision I stepped on the gas and crashed into the other car. As I approached the intersection, a stop sign suddenly appeared in a place where no stop sign had ever appeared before. I was unable to stop in time to avoid the accident. The indirect cause of this accident was a little guy in a small car with a big mouth. I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way. I told the police that I was not injured, but on removing my hat, I found that I had fractured my skull. I thought I could squeeze between two trucks when my car became squashed. ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Laquisha Jones, 30, Los Angeles, California Woman charged with attempted murder for beating 92-year-old man with brick Laquisha has been arrested five additional times in the past, with a prostitution conviction. This is her sixth arrest. She Shouted Racist Statements at Him & Told Him to ‘Go Back to Mexico,’ Witnesses Say. According to the witness, who asked that she not be named, Jones repeatedly screamed a series of racist statements at Rodriguez while beating him, the Los Angeles Times reports. Laquisha, accused of severely injuring a 92-year-old man with a brick is now facing charges of attempted murder and elder abuse, prosecutors said. Laquisha Jones, 30, allegedly attacked the elderly man with a brick south of Los Angeles on July 4, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said. A "woman pushed him and dropped him," a witness told ABC station KABC-TV in Los Angeles. "She took the block of concrete and hit him in his head many times." Jones, who prosecutors said fled the scene after seeing that somebody was recording her assault, was arrested Tuesday and initially faced the charge of assault with a deadly weapon. The district attorney's office announced the attempted murder and elder abuse charges on Thursday. “I heard her saying, go back to your country, go back to Mexico,” Borjas told CNN. “When I tried to videotape her with my cell phone, she threw that same concrete block, tried to hit my car.” Despite Jones allegedly telling Rodriguez to go back to his country (he is of Mexican descent, but is a legal U.S. resident), LASD has determined that the attack on Rodriguez “is not a hate-related incident,” the department wrote in a statement. The 92-year-old was hospitalized after the assault in Willowbrook. According to his family, Rodriguez suffered two broken ribs, a broken jaw, broken cheekbones, and bruising throughout his face and body. He is still recovering from his injuries.

I like the links you have on left side as they remind me to click on them & feed the poor, animals, and the breast cancer sight. You do lots of good for so many. Many thanks, Taurus. Dear Taurus The easiest way to make a screensaver is this: Use the Windows File Explorer to find your "My Pictures" folder. Make a new folder inside that and call it Archive Switch the File Explorer to Thumbnail view, Click on Folders, so that it shows the folders on the left side. (This works much better in Classical mode) Drag all pictures that you don't want included in your screen saver into the "Archive" folder. Save any new pictures, that you want included, into the "My Pictures" folder. Right-click on the desktop, Properties, Appearance, Screensaver Select "My Pictures" Set the delay time, and hit OK a bunch of times. From then on you will have a slide show of the pictures in "My Pictures" as a screen saver.

In jail now. A man wanted in a South Miami armed home invasion has been arrested hundreds of miles away after police say he raped, robbed, and kidnapped a woman at knifepoint. Benjamin Victor Hovan was arrested Thursday at a Titusville convenience store, just north of Cocoa Beach, after a nationwide arrest warrant was issued, Titusville police said. Brevard County records show Hovan was booked Thursday morning. He was charged with home invasion, sexual battery and kidnapping. Police say Hovan robbed a 62-year-old woman at gunpoint on Wednesday along the 6000 block of Kendall Drive in South Miami. South Miami police say Hovan, 32, pistol-whipped the woman before taking off with her jewelry and Mercedes Benz. On Saturday, police say Hovan was in Casselberry, Florida, just north of Kissimmee, where he held a 24-year-old woman at knifepoint. WFTV9 reported that the woman opened her apartment door thinking it was a pizza deliveryman. It wasn't. Hovan, who police say had been watching the woman and her friend load the car in a grocery store parking lot just hours before, barged in with a knife and raped one of them, the news station reported. Afterward, police said, Hovan kidnapped them in a car owned by one of them, took them to a Publix ATM in a nearby town and demanded they withdraw money. That's when one of the women asked an employee to call 911. By the time police got there, Hovan had fled. Hovan was spotted at a convenience store in Titusville on Thursday. A police officer thought he was acting suspicious and checked the license plate of the car he was driving. He tried to run but the cop put him on the ground with her taser. Hovan was ultimately identified by investigators by his fingerprints in the woman's apartment and in the stolen Mercedes.

It can easily handle summer temperatures, since the engine has a thermostat anyway. In winter put a rug in front of the radiator and over the engine, so that it reaches proper operating temperature. Even the best engine is a gas guzzler during warm-up, since it is programmed to burn extra fuel to heat up the engine to ideal temp. Without a rug it may never reach ideal temp until March! Change oil and air filters frequently, and vacuum out the duct from the front to the air filter intake. Any leaves or twigs in that duct cost you dearly in gas money, but no mechanic will ever tell you about that. They rather sell you expensive add-ons or better filters, that don't make much difference. Have FUN! DearWebby Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________

"I'm sure I won't," said the Irishman, "after all, he's been away for a long time". "I wonder if he'll recognize you?" said the American. "Of course he will," said the Irishman.

A Protestant moved into a completely Catholic community. Being good Catholics they welcomed him into their community. But, also because they were good Catholics they did not eat red meat on Fridays. So when their neighbor began barbecuing some juicy steak on Friday night, they began to squirm. They were so annoyed that they went to talk to him about it. After much talk they convinced him to become Catholic. The next Sunday he went to the priest and the priest sprinkled holy water on him and said, "You were born Protestant. You were raised Protestant. But now you are Catholic." And so, the next Friday, as the neighbors sat down to eat their fish, they were disturbed by the smell of roast beef coming from the neighboring house. They went over to talk to the new Catholic because he knew he was not supposed to eat beef on Fridays. When they saw him, he was sprinkling ketchup on the beef saying, "You were born a cow. You were raised a cow. But now you are a fish." In order to hang on to their members, Catholics can now eat red meat on Fridays, and are even allowed to use birth control. However, organic birth control like "69" is still a sin. ____________________________________________________

The Republican, Fred Thompson, gave the homeless person his business card and told him to come to his office for a job. He then took $20 out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person. Hillary was very impressed, so when they came to another homeless person, she decided to help. She walked over to the homeless person and gave him directions to the welfare office. She then reached into Thompson's pocket and got out $20. She kept $15 for her administrative fees and gave the homeless person $5. ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Robert Quigley, 25 Citrus Heights, California 2nd time in a week DUI driver runs back to burning car to light a smoke A suspected drunken driver went back to his burning car Sunday to try lighting his cigarette using the flames, according to the CHP. Amy Walker with the CHP says Robert Quigley, 25, rear-ended an SUV that was stopped in traffic on westbound Interstate 80 just west of Antelope Road. At the time of the crash, Quigley was driving around 75 to 80 mph. A CHP officer spotted the car after it burst into flames and turned around in traffic to help. As he did, he spotted Quigley switch seats with his female passenger. Quigley later admitted to the officer that he was behind the wheel at the time of the crash. A witness told officials a shirtless Quigley went back to his burning car to light his cigarette, singeing part of his eyebrows off in the process, according to Walker. Quigley later told the officer at the scene, “Yeah I’m not afraid of fire. I deal with this kind of stuff all the time.” Walker says Quigley sustained a burn on his neck from his seatbelt. No one else was injured in the crash. Quigley has been charged on suspicion of driving under the influence and is being booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail. This is the second time he has been picked up for DUI in the last week after Grass Valley CHP stopped him during a separate incident.

It is common practice for both the client and the owner of the dogs to oversee the mating, just to be sure a breeding did take place also to prevent the dogs from harming each other. The male was getting on in years but his owner didn't expect any problems. The impressive looking male Akita, General, was introduced to flirlty Sasha. She play bowed, spun in circles, barked, presented the baby making area to him. She was ready. Before she arrived, the owner had put a bowl of home cooked doggie stew out for General. The huge Akita looked at Sasha, looked at the bowl, back at the female. He put a paw on Sasha's shoulder as if in apology, then turned away to flop down in front of the stew to eat. Slowly, his eyes half closed, he was set to enjoy every morsal. I expected the owner to be a bit embarrassed. After all the client had driven 500 miles to have her Akita bred. Watching his male dog choose stew over a pretty female, he just shook his head then mournfully said ,"Please Lord, don't ever let me get that old!" ___________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A classic! Dear Mom, Our Scoutmaster told us all to write to our parents in case you saw the flood on TV and worried. We are OK. Only one of our tents and two sleeping bags got washed away. Luckily, none of us got drowned because we were all up on the mountain looking for Chad when it happened. Oh yes, please call Chad's mother and tell her that he's OK. He can't write because of the cast. I got to ride on one of the search and rescue jeeps. It was neat. We never would have found him in the dark if it hadn't been for the lightning. Scoutmaster Webb got mad at Chad for going on a hike alone without telling anyone. Chad said he did tell him, but it was during the fire so he probably didn't hear him. Did you know that if you put a gas can on a fire, the gas can will blow up? Billy is going to look weird until his hair grows back. We will be home on Saturday if Scoutmaster Webb gets the car fixed. It wasn't his fault about the wreck. The brakes worked OK when we left. Scoutmaster Webb said that with a car that old you to have to expect something to break down; that's probably why he can't get insurance on it. We think it's a neat car. He doesn't care if we get it dirty, and if it's hot, sometimes he lets us ride in the tailgate. It gets pretty hot with ten people in a car. Scoutmaster Webb is a neat guy. Don't worry, he is a good driver. In fact, he is teaching Terry how to drive. But he only lets him drive on the mountain roads where there isn't any traffic. All we ever see up there are logging trucks. Guess what? We have all passed our first aid merit badges. When Dave dove in the lake and cut his arm, we got to see how a tourniquet works. Also, Wade and I threw up. Scoutmaster Webb said it probably was just food poisoning from the leftover chicken. He said they got sick that way with the food they ate in prison. I'm so glad he got out and became our scoutmaster. He said he sure figured out how to get things done better while he was doing his time. I have to go now. We are going into town to mail our letters and buy more bullets and dynamite. Don't worry about anything. We are fine. Love, Johnny ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Chad M Stitch, 35, Greensburg, Pennsylvania Neck tattoo with PA man's name foils fake ID The tattoo gave it away. A Greensburg police officer knew a Greensburg man was giving him a fake name, according to court papers. The evidence was right there in front of him tattooed on the suspect's neck. Chad M. Stitch, who turns 35 today, was riding in a car that was pulled over Wednesday after it was suspected to be involved in a drug deal, according to police. Stitch is being held in the Westmoreland County Prison on $300,000 bail. A witness reported to police an apparent drug deal involving a blue Chevrolet Malibu at 7:15 p.m. in a parking lot along South Main Street. At the same time, police saw the same car speeding in that area, eventually catching up with it close to the Cedar Street exit of Route 30, according to an affidavit. The passenger identified himself as Chad Majors, but Detective John Swank called his bluff. Swank had arrested Stitch in 2012. I told Stitch that he had provided a false name and I knew he was Chad Stitch, Swank wrote in the complaint. He denied that and stated that his name was Chad Majors. I observed Stitch tattooed on the left side of his neck and told Stitch that his name was tattooed on his neck. Police said they seized about 40 bags of suspected heroin stamped Super Mario and Polo, 23 Ecstasy tablets, marijuana and $180. Stitch is charged with drug offenses and false identification to police. He did not have an attorney listed in online court records. A preliminary hearing is set Thursday. A drunken driving charge is pending against the car's driver, police said.

Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to-be a lantern and said, "Here, you hold this high so I can see what I'm doing." Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world. "Whoa there," said the doctor. "Don't be in a rush to put the lantern down ... I think there's yet another one to come." Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a baby girl. "No, no, don't be in a great hurry to be putting down that lantern ... It seems there's yet another one coming!" cried the doctor.

The plants will grow through and make potatoes on top of the ground and the straw will shrink down during the summer. By Glenita If you don't have straw, an old bed sheet works even better. When you see the greens lifting the sheet, stab it with a knife and let the greens wiggle out. The potaoes will grow just fine below the sheet, and from early summer on you can reach under the sheet and grab a meal's worth of clean potatoes. That worked well for me even in the Yukon. In cold climate like the Yukon, a plastic tunnel above the potato greenery of course helps a lot. Have FUN!

A couple had two little boys ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous. They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew that if any mischief occurred in their town, their sons were probably involved. The boys' mother heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The clergyman agreed but asked to see them individually. So the mother sent her 8-year-old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the clergyman in the afternoon. The clergyman, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?" They boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there with his mouth hanging open, wide-eyed. So the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone, "Where is God!!?" Again the boy made no attempt to answer. So the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed, "WHERE IS GOD!?" The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "What happened? The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in BIG trouble this time, dude. God is missing - and they think WE did it!" ____________________________________________________

Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church! At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, "You're not going to let him get away with this, are you?" The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not." Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole. It WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE! St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why did you let him do that?" The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to brag to?" ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by (Previous mug shot) Ricky Wright, 36, Dallas, Texas A man tried to steal an suv with kids inside then the mom shot him. A Texas mother used her firearm to prevent a kidnapping after a man allegedly tried to steal her SUV with her two toddlers inside. Michelle Booker-Hicks was at a gas station in Dallas on Wednesday night when the attendant alerted her that a carjacker had begun to drive her car away, reported Dallas Morning News. She was able to jump into the back seat, and after a brief altercation, she pulled a gun from her glove compartment. The suspect, Ricky Wright, 36, was shot in the head and immediately crashed the vehicle into a utility pole. Wright was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. “I should have just emptied the whole clip but I didn’t. I didn’t. I just wanted to give him warning shot, that was it,” Booker said to KTVT-TV. “I’m not a killer or anything like that, but I do believe in defending what’s mine.” Wright was arrested and charged with two counts of unlawful restraint and unauthorized use of motor vehicle. He has an extensive criminal record, with more than 20 charges on a variety of crimes, reported ABC13. The mother and her children were unharmed.

Thanks to Chuck for this report: I was reminded of the time I was in Washington (the State) eating breakfast at a little diner in the middle of no-where. In the next booth were 3 state police chatting and having coffee. One of them told the story of the time they had set up a speed trap way out in the middle of nowhere. Long stretches between small towns. This guy comes along, really screaming. Gets a ticket. Goes a little way, stomps on the pedal and the next officer in the line stops him and gives him another ticket. The guy ends up with 5 speeding tickets. He was thinking that its so remote, there can't be another cop for miles. And especially after the 4 ticket he knows, there can't be another.

A fellow computer programmer for a consulting group had designed some software for one of our largest accounts. He asked my help in putting it into operation. At first, he handled most of the work. Eventually, though, he asked me to help with the last phase of the training. When I sat down with one woman and told her I would be showing her how to make changes to the files, she sighed with relief. "I'm so glad you're teaching me instead of him." Surprised, I said that my colleague was far more experienced than I was. "Yes," she said, "but I feel much more comfortable with you. I get nervous around smart people." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Recycled Water For Plants Don't pour water that you use for cooking vegetables down the drain.

According to a Facebook post from the Martin County Sheriff's Office, Priscilla Corpus and her alleged partner in crime Jeffrey Scot Robinson was taken into custody on Tuesday. According to TCPalm.com, staffers at Dunkin Donuts tipped off cops to what appeared to be a fake bill. Deputies stopped the pair's trek in Stuart as they were motoring to their next location to hit up. In their car, along with numerous bags of food from restaurants along the Treasure Coast, deputies found more than $500 in counterfeit $20 and $50 bills, along with more than $1,500 in real U.S. currency. "The duo also had two fake guns, a number of wigs and a change of clothing," read the report. Corpus, who is from North Lauderdale, admitted to detectives she would go to various fast/casual food chains like Dunkin Donuts, Panera and McDonald's and pay for a meal with a counterfeit bill, then get authentic money in change. Robinson, who is from Pompano Beach, was the driver, but had no valid license, said the sheriff's department. Corpus, 21, was charged with uttering a forged instrument (three counts), possessing forged bills and permitting an unauthorized operator to drive. She is being held at the Martin County Jail on a $20,400 bond, according to deputies. Robinson was charged with operating a vehicle without a license, and resisting arrest without violence. The 19 year old, who was not involved with any phony cash transactions, cops say, was released from the Martin County Jail on $950 bond.

There he read: "The minister extends his thanks to Elder Brown for his gift of fruit and for the spirit in which it was given." ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Therese Patricia Okoumou, 44, Staten Island, New York Fashist climbs to foot of Statue of Liberty Okoumou, a fanatic Fashist, climbed to the base of the Statue of Liberty to protest the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, which enforces decades-long federal immigration law that predates President Trump's tenure. She is a member of Rise and Resist, an anti-Trump group that claims because they are kinda stupid but noisy, they overrule the elected government, which held an Abolish ICE banner at the foot of the Statue of Liberty before her climb. The Hilarites demand open borders and to allow free and unchecked access for MS13 and other welfare recipients. And as Fashists, they claim they are right and the elected government is wrong. Okoumou vowed to stay atop the Statue of Liberty until all the illegal-alien children are released. In reality, Okoumou came down two hours into her failed publicity stunt after being taken into custody and jailed by the cops. The morons don't realize that the kids of arrested criminals, no matter whether the criminals had burglared into a bank or a country, can not be released onto the street, but have to remain with Child Services. Unlike the Obama era cages, nowadays Child services places the kids with foster homes or juvenile detention schools. Liberty Island had to evacuate 4,500 tourists on Independence Day thanks to Okoumou and her motley crew of fashist protesters. Okoumou is now sitting in jail along with six of her "Rise and Resist" crew, who ruined a holiday for innocent bystanders and police alike. Okoumou is facing charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct, and interfering with government functions. In August 2017, Okoumou was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault for injuring a cop while resisting arrest during a protest. She has a history of filing unsuccessful race-discrimination lawsuits. In 2003, she filed a wrongful-termination lawsuit claiming racial discrimination after being fired from a battered-women's shelter called Safe Horizons. According to court records, Okoumou's boss said she was fired because she was rude and unprofessional to clients and colleagues. She lost the lawsuit. In 2007, Okoumou unsuccessfully filed another race discrimination complaint against a group home in Staten Island. It's unclear who's paying Okoumou's bills while she participates in weekly anti-Trump protests, or why she didn't launch similar protests when Barack Obama jailed and mass-deported illegal aliens during his eight years as president. The only change is that under Trump the detention facilities and procedures were drastically improved.

_____________________________________________________ Classic! Just as John got in the door, after staying at the bar a bit too long, the cuckoo clock in the hall started up and cuckooed 3 times. He realized his wife would probably wake up, so he cuckooed another 9 times. He was really proud of himself, having a quick witty solution, even when smashed, to escape a possible conflict. Next morning the wife asked him what time he got in and he told her 12 o'clock. She didn't seem disturbed at all. Whew! Got away with that one! She then told him that they needed a new cuckoo clock. When he asked her why, she said "Well, it cuckooed 3 times, said 'Oh, f@#%,' cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another 3 times, snickered, and finally cuckooed twice more, and then it farted." ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by William Banks, 49, Spartanburg, South Carolina When his waitress told him he was too drunk for another drink, he got violent. A Wild Wing Cafe waitress made the call to stop serving drinks to a customer who was too intoxicated, and when the man was cut off, it was the start to a violent, drunken outburst, police say. William Banks was outraged when he was denied another alcoholic beverage shortly after midnight June 22 at the popular chicken wing restaurant, according to the Spartanburg Police Department. In less than an hour after being refused service, the South Carolina man threatened to shoot multiple members of the Wild Wing Cafe staff, assaulted his waitress, then told the officer arresting him he would get him fired, police reported. The waitress said she cut Banks off from alcohol after observing how drunk he was, causing him to become "irate and (he) started cussing her out when she refused him anymore alcohol," according to the police report. Police said Banks then tried to order a drink from the manager, who also refused him service because of his intoxicated state. Banks responded by swearing at the manager and "threatened to shoot her," police say. Banks then returned his focus to his waitress, directing vulgarities at her and "threatening to shoot her, as well," police reported. As the waitress tried to walk away, Banks struck her in the head, according to the incident report, which said a bartender witnessed the assault. At this point, the son of a staff member removed Banks from the restaurant by "physically carrying him outside," police said. The responding police officer found Banks walking down the street and detained the 49-year-old man, according to an incident report. A person who was with Banks at the restaurant during the incident told police "Banks was extremely intoxicated ... and knew Banks was wrong," the report said. After the waitress identified Banks, he was arrested. As Banks was being taken to the Spartanburg County Detention Center, he threatened the officer's job, saying "he knew who worked at the Spartanburg Police Department," according to the incident report. Banks, of Spartanburg, was charged with third-degree assault and battery, and trespassing after notice, according to jail records, which showed he was released the same day without bond.

_____________________________________________________ Interview with Yogi Berra Interviewer: Can you explain jazz? Yogi: I can't, but I will. 90% of all jazz is half improvisation. The other half is the part people play while others are playing something they never played with anyone who played that part. So if you play the wrong part, its right. If you play the right part, it might be right if you play it wrong enough. But if you play it too right, it's wrong. Interviewer: I don't understand. Yogi: Anyone who understands jazz knows that you can't understand it. It's too complicated. That's whats so simple about it. Interviewer: Do you understand it? Yogi: No. That's why I can explain it. If I understood it, I wouldnt know anything about it. Interviewer: Are there any great jazz players alive today? Yogi: No. All the great jazz players alive today are dead. Except for the ones that are still alive. But so many of them are dead, that the ones that are still alive are dying to be like the ones that are dead. Some would kill for it. Interviewer: What is syncopation? Yogi: That's when the note that you should hear now happens either before or after you hear it. In jazz, you don't hear notes when they happen because that would be some other type of music. Other types of music can be jazz, but only if they're the same as something different from those other kinds. Interviewer: Now I really don't understand. Yogi: I haven't taught you enough for you to not understand jazz ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Davon Deangelo Fuller 23, Holly Hill, South Carolina SC crook out of jail for 30 minutes then stole a police car A South Carolina man was back behind bars less than 24 hours after being released from a Lowcountry jail.

The 23-year-old Holly Hill man was released from the Hill-Finklea Detention Center at 9:30 p.m. Monday, abcnews4.com reported. By 9:55 p.m. Fuller had not left the parking lot, but Moncks Corner Police said he already committed a crime, according to live5news.com. Fuller stole a car a Berkeley County Sheriff's Office deputy's car from the detention center parking lot, live5news.com reported. Police said Fuller was caught on surveillance footage hanging around outside the jail after his release. The video showed him attempting to open several cars, according to abcnews4.com, which said he wasn't successful until he got to the patrol car of Berkeley County Sheriff's deputy Javon Dingle. The car was unlocked, and a spare set of keys was not the only thing inside, live5news.com reported. Police said that Dingle's service pistol was also in the vehicle when Fuller stole the car.

He has not had a bond hearing for the most recent charge.

Q: How many women with PMS does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: One. ONE!! And do you know WHY it only takes ONE? Because no one else in this house knows HOW to change a light bulb. They don't even know the bulb is BURNED OUT. They would sit in this house in the dark for THREE DAYS before they figured it OUT. And once they figured it out they wouldn't be able to find the light bulbs despite the fact that they've been in the SAME CUPBOARD for the past SEVENTEEN YEARS. But if they did, by some miracle, actually find the light bulbs, TWO DAYS LATER the chair that they dragged from two rooms over to stand on to change the STUPID light bulb would STILL BE IN THE SAME SPOT!! AND UNDERNEATH IT WOULD BE THE CRUMPLED WRAPPER THE STUPID @*!#$% LIGHT BULBS CAME IN! WHY?! BECAUSE NO ONE IN THIS HOUSE EVER CARRIES OUT THE GARBAGE!! IT'S A WONDER WE HAVEN'T ALL SUFFOCATED FROM THE PILES OF GARBAGE THAT ARE 12 FEET DEEP THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE HOUSE. THE HOUSE!! IT WOULD TAKE AN ARMY TO CLEAN THIS . . .

Fred had been a faithful Christian and was in the hospital with heart trou8ble. The family called their pastor to stand with them. As the pastor stood next to the bed, Fred's condition appeared to deteriorate and he motioned frantically for something to write on. The pastor lovingly handed him a pen and a piece of paper, and Fred used his last bit of energy to scribble a note, then he died. The pastor thought it best not to look at the note at that time, so he placed it in his jacket pocket. Several days later, at the funeral, as the pastor was finishing the eulogy, he realized that he was wearing the same jacket that he was wearing when Fred had died. He said, "you know, ol' Fred handed me a note just before he died. I haven't looked at it, but knowing Fred, I'm sure there's a word of inspiration there for us all. Let's have his son read it to us!" His son opened the note, and read aloud, "You're standing on my oxygen tube, you useless windbag!" ____________________________________________________

Deputies said they were called shortly before 1:30 p.m. to Toronita Avenue Beach Park at Toronita and South Atlantic avenues after two parents reported they had to pull their children away from Sarah Freeman, Sheriff's Office spokesman Andrew Gant said. Investigators said Freeman approached a 7-year-old girl, told her, "This isn’t a Florida trip you’re going to want to remember," and tried to grab her by the towel she was wearing. The girl's mother, who is six months pregnant, pulled her daughter away from Freeman, who hit the woman during the struggle, deputies said. Investigators said Freeman approached a man whose backside she struck with a stick before saying, "We don’t know you around here." "She told his 5-year-old son, 'It will be all right. He's not your dad,' grabbed him by the arm and started to walk away," Gant said. "The father intervened, got his son back and took him back to his truck, where Freeman tried to force her way in through a passenger window." Deputies said Freeman turned to another woman and said, "I'll just take your kid, then." The woman took her child into their vehicle and locked the doors, investigators said. "Once in custody, she mumbled and made unintelligible statements to a deputy, who noticed she appeared to be under the influence of some unknown substance," Gant said. Freeman was booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail on two counts of attempted kidnapping and one count each of aggravated battery on a pregnant victim, burglary of a conveyance and battery. She is being held without bail.

"I know," said the man, "but I can't. She will divorce me if I don't. ____________________________________________________

Good Morning, !
Today is Tuesday,  July 3

The people in the US, who are still loyal subjects to the
Imperial British measurement system, and have not yet
gotten permission from the Queen to upgrade to metric,
will have to wait another day for their Independence
day. 

So it's my day to razz you about your quaint
BTU (British Thermal Unit), Fahrenheit, Feet, Cubits, 
Yards, Furlongs, heaped and struck bushels, and all the
neat stuff we read about in the old fairy tales and history
books. 

Have FUN!

WOKV told you back in April that 48-year-old Trisha Denlinger had been arrested. She has now pleaded “nolo contendere” in Bradford County to unlawful possession of a handcuff key and conveying tools to aid escape and been sentenced to 30 months, with credit for 60 days time served. Denlinger arranged to visit her husband at Florida State Prison, where he was an inmate, according to her arrest affidavit. Records say she purchased a sealed chicken sandwich, unsealed it, heated it in a microwave, and then gave it to a Correctional Officer to search. Investigators say the Officer found a plastic handcuff key in that sandwich. The arrest affidavit says Denlinger went through three prison fences, four gates, and a metal detector. Her person items had gone through an X-ray scanner, per the Florida Department of Corrections.

Out canvassing for a charity, my friend Irene and I knocked at a door. It was opened by a huge bear of a man, who was wearing a large black bra, over his shirt. Irene, being a devout Catholic, crossed herself, backed up ready to make a fast retreat. I asked politely for a donation, trying to keep my eyes from wandering to his protruding undergarment. He grinned evilly at me, "Wanna feel em?" Horrified, I turned to leave, when one side of his bra came alive with motion. Irene was now crossing herself with a flurry, muttering, "Jaysus, Mary and Murphy." She was begging the saints to protect her, when a tiny tail flipped out of his bra. "Oh my sweet Lord," she squealed, "He's got rats in his boobs," bolted for the car, offering up 'Hail Mary's.' as she tore off the porch. An old lady came out of the house, glared at the man, who just grinned back. He put his hands up to cradle both cups, which were now writhing with movement. She turned to me asking, "Did he ask you to play with them?" "Yes", I gulped. "Well," she said, patting my hand, " He's not too bright, but it's not what you think." She ordered him to pull his bra out so I could peek inside. Hesitantly I watched, while he pulled the garment down. When I got a good look I burst out laughing. Tiny muzzles with whiskers, long sinuous bodies, small heads with bright beady eyes, stared back at me. "Their mama died," he explained, " This bra is the perfect place to keep them warm." Both cups were filled to the brim with tiny baby ferrets.

Ed was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really angry. She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 250 in less then 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE!" The next morning Ed got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up she looked out the window and sure enough there was a gift-wrapped box in the middle of the driveway. Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house. She opened it and found a brand new heavy duty bathroom scale. Ed has been missing since Friday. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Birdbath Use two large stackable plastic bowls.

A newspaper reporter for the Los Angeles Times had received instructions from his senior editor to get photographs of a brush fire in the foothills of northern California. The instructions included hurrying to the Santa Monica Airport to board a small plane, taking some photos of the fire, and hurrying back by noon with the story. The reporter dressed quickly, rushed to the airport, saw the small plane waiting on the runway, drove his car to the end of the runway, parked, and climbed on board. Off they flew into the clear blue skies. At about 5,000 feet, the reporter took out his camera and said to the man flying the plane, "Bank right and I'll take some pictures of this fire." Then he heard the most frightening questions of his life, "Bank right? How do I do that? You ARE the instructor, aren't you?" ____________________________________________________

According to an arrest report, the victim, Israel Sosa, met Kira White while standing near the VIP section of the bar around 1 a.m. June 16. Police said they interviewed several employees, one of whom said they served White and the victim several bottles. The employee noticed White would not drink from the glasses and would just push the glass aside, the arrest report stated. Police said White and Sosa left the bar as it was closing and the victim told White he was going to his hotel and that he would pay a driver to take her back home. But White told him she wanted to hang out for a little longer, so she accompanied Sosa back to his hotel, authorities said. Surveillance video from the hotel shows Sosa walking into an elevator with the woman. Sosa, who is from New Jersey, told Local 10 News reporter Nicole Perez via Facetime that he didn't realize White, whose name he thought was Meghan, had already stolen his gold chain. Police said the two had another drink in the hotel room and Sosa left his drink unattended as he used the restroom. Sosa told authorities he woke up several hours later and discovered that White had left, taking with her his $30,000 Cuban-link gold chain and his $30,000 Rolex watch, which had a $5,000 medallion on it. The victim said she also took $5,000 in $100 bills that were inside his wallet. "I ran downstairs and told the front desk at the hotel," Sosa said. "They were, like, dumbfounded, and I was like, 'We need to call the police. This lady just took my belongings.'" Surveillance video from the hotel shows a woman, believed to be White, coming out of the elevator alone and rummaging through what appears to be a bag before she pulls out a towel. Sosa told Local 10 News that he had left his diamond Rolex on top of a towel inside his hotel room. "She gave me another drink. The last thing I recall, she said, 'I'm going to use the restroom.' And then I walked up- there was a watch I had- my diamond watch on top of a towel. And when I jumped up around 7:30, I realized the towel was gone with the watch," Sosa said. A Blue Martini employee told Local 10 News that a member of the nightclub's security team spotted White walking on the street below the business early Friday and notified authorities. White was arrested on a grand theft charge.
Tech Support Pits From: Richard Re: Computer for Europe Dear Webby I have to go to Europe for six month. Can my computer be adapted to work over there, or would it be better to buy one there? I also have an Iomega remote hard drive. Does that one work there? Thanks Richard Dear Richard Yes, they all work just fine in Europe. Take along the power bar that you use now, but cut the plug off. When you get there, go to the nearest hardware store or supermarket and buy a regular plug. Each country there has a different plug, and some countries have different ones in different regions. All that talk about a united and standardized Europe is just BS. The only thing they all have in common is a dislike for Americans, and usually also a fair bit of envy. Get their local plug and attach it to the power bar cord. Computers and Laptop chargers are all rated 100-250 Volt. So, don't worry about the voltage. The Iomega remote hard drive doesn't care what voltage you power it with. It adapts automatically for anything between 100 and 240. The newer remote hard drives are powered by their USB connection and don't even have a separate power supply. You COULD get an adapter for the area that you go to, but they cost 8 - 10 times more than an ordinary power plug, plus shipping. If you are concerned about the remote hard drive causing problems at airport security, you can just get a few 64 GB camera chips and put your important files onto those. They are considerably lighter when carrying your carry-on through a few miles of hard airport corridors. Have FUN DearWebby

___________________________________________________ In Bill Gates' book (Business @ The Speed of Thought), he lays out 11 rules that students do not learn in high school or college. He argues that our feel good, politically correct teachings have created a generation of kids with no concept of reality who are set up for failure in the real world. RULE 1 - Life is not fair; get used to it. RULE 2 - The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. RULE 3 - You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice president with a car phone, until you earn both. RULE 4 - If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure. RULE 5 - Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping; they called it opportunity. RULE 6 - If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them. RULE 7 - Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents' generation, try "delousing" the closet in your own room. RULE 8 - Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. RULE 9 - Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time. RULE 10 - Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. RULE 11 - Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one. ___________________________________________________

Good Morning, !
Today is Sunday,  July 1
Happy Canada Day!


Because Hagar and his crew settled in Newfoundland 300 years
before Columbus, Canada Day is 3 days before the American July 4
holiday. 

The name Canada dates to Jacques Cartier's second voyage (1535-
1536), when he transcribed the Huron-Iroquoian word, Kanata,
meaning  settlement.  By the mid-1500s, Canada was already
appearing on European maps of North America as the area north of
the St. Lawrence River.

Just like on July 4, huge quantities of beer get consumed.
Here is the site of Molson Canadian

_____________________________________________________ A nun is sitting with her Mother Superior chatting. "I used some horrible language this week and feel absolutely terrible about it." "When did you use this awful language?" asks the elder. "Well, I was golfing and hit an incredible drive that looked like it was going to go over 280 yards, but it struck a phone line that is hanging over the fairway and fell straight down to the ground after going only about 100 yards." "Is that when you swore?" "No, Mother," says the nun. "After that, a squirrel ran out of the bushes and grabbed my ball in its mouth and began to run away." "Is that when you swore?" asks the Mother Superior again. "Well, no." says the nun. "You see, as the squirrel was running, an eagle came down out of the sky, grabbed the squirrel in his talons and began to fly away!" "Is THAT when you swore?" asks the amazed elder nun. "No, not yet. As the eagle carried the squirrel away in its claws, it flew near the green and the squirrel dropped my ball." "Did you swear THEN?" asked Mother Superior, becoming impatient. "No, because the ball fell on a big rock, bounced over the sand trap, rolled onto the green, and stopped about six inches from the hole." The two nuns were silent for a moment. Then Mother Superior sighed and said, "You missed the @#$%^& putt, didn't you?" ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Michael Schletter, 35, Duval County, Florida Britain's most prolific criminal, 62, back behind bars for his 668th offence Patrick Ryan, 62, Accrington, Lancashire, England Patrick Ryan, 62, has run up a staggering 469 convictions for a total of 668 offences, costing UK taxpayers a staggering Ł3 million to take to court. His criminal record runs to 100 pages and is so long a police force once put a note on it warning workers not to print it out as it would waste too much paper. This week at Preston Crown Court a probation officer referred to Ryan's 'sheer number' of convictions and admitted he had 'never seen a record like it'. Judge Andrew Jefferies QC jailed him for 18 months after hearing how he exposed himself to a bus-load of appalled passengers, groped one and urinated. The judge told him: 'You're 62 and you expose yourself and urinate on a bus.. 'You're drunk and stumbling and grope a woman. No one should have to be groped by a drunk man. 'You then go on another bus and because of the effect of the drink, you urinate again. 'Set against that record, I have no hesitation in sentencing you to 18 months in prison. 'You will serve half of that sentence and will be released on licence and supervision after that. 'During the period of licence and supervision, this would be be a good time to look at your mental health and drinking problem.'
Tech Support Pits From: Stormy Re: Computer recommendation Dear Webby I'm giving my Toshiba lap top to my son. What would 'you' recommend for someone who loves to download everything, save up "stuff' and writes? Any help here would be appreciated! The computer store here says they can build one for me, keeping in mind what I want it for. They start at about $1,1000. I am on a diet concerning income, so have to be really sure of what I buy. Thanks, have a super day, stormy Dear Stormy I have heard about the computer stores in your town. Forget them. Go to the next big town, that has a Staples, or shop online. You don't need a high performance machine for bragging on the school bus. The cheapest laptop will be overkill. Staples sometimes have dusty big screen laptops really cheap. I got an Acer Aspire with a 17" screen there for around $300 about 7 years ago, because all the Yuppies want small ones to take into Starbucks, and the huge 17" laptop just gathered dust. It has been my work machine ever since. Don't worry about the disk size. IF and when you run out of space, you can get a USB connected external 2 TeraByte drive, that will become an heirloom. You will never fill that. Have FUN DearWebby

A chief and an admiral were sitting in the barber shop. They were both just getting finished with their shaves--the barbers were reaching for some aftershave to slap on their faces. The admiral shouted, "Hey, don't put that stuff on me! My wife will think I've been in a whorehouse!" The chief turned to his barber and said, "Go ahead and put it on. My wife doesn't know what the inside of a whorehouse smells like."

Kentucky An excerpt from brilliant Kentucky state legislation. "No female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she be escorted by at least two officers or unless she be armed with a club." The following important amendment however is to be considered here: "The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds, nor shall it apply to male horses." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keeping Animals Out of Trash A bungie cord securing the lid should prevent trash from spilling out if an animal tips it over. As a deterrent, fill a spray bottle with ammonia and spray the outside of the can every few days. This will keep animals away. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________
___________________________________________________ What women say and what they mean: FINE: This is the word we use at the end of any argument that we feel we are right about but need to shut you up. NEVER use fine to describe how a woman looks. This will cause you to have one of those arguments. FIVE MINUTES: This is a half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so I feel that it's an even trade. NOTHING: This means something and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with the word "Fine." GO AHEAD (with raised eyebrows): This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine." GO AHEAD (with normal eyebrows): This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care." You will get a raise! d eyebrow "Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off. LOUD SIGH: This is not actually a word, but is still often a verbal statement very misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing." SOFT SIGH: Again, not a word, but a verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" are one of the few things that some men actually understand. She is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe and she will stay content. THAT'S OKAY: This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can say to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you retributions for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and used in conjunction with a raised eyebrow "Go Ahead." At some point in the near future when she has plotted and planned, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble. PLEASE DO: This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance to tell the truth, ! so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay." THANKS: A woman is thanking you. Do not faint; just say you're welcome. THANKS A LOT: This is much different from "THANKS." A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have hurt her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh." Be care not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you "Oh Nothing." ___________________________________________________

My boss wanted a "Clean Desk" policy, so he sent a memo saying that any paperwork left on desks would be removed at night and we would have to fill out a form to get it back. So we left all our trash paper on our desks every night.

Tech Support Pits From: Yolanda Re: Screen Saver is full screen Dear Webby Good morning. I hope and pray you and yours are doing well?! I messed up, I read this mornings email from you regarding screensavers...ughhhh, should have come with warning Don't try this at home...lol I did as you had suggested to your reader and now my screen saver is full screen and I can't get it to down size. I know you have the answer and will you be so kind to share with me...and possibly other readers who have the same issue. Thank you for your time and help in regards to my mess up. Have a Blessed day!! Smiles, Yolanda Dear Yolanda You did not mess up. Screen Savers are always full screen. They are supposed to save and protect the entire screen. In the old days, when we had green monitors, if they were left running overnight, every night, with the word processor menu up, it burned in. To prevent that, screen savers were invented in the 80's. With today's monitors, that is not a problem. Today the screen savers are mostly just to hide the games you are playing or confidential client data while you run for coffee or a nap. However, they are still full screen, and no command exists to make them protect less than the entire screen. As soon as you touch the mouse or hit a key on the keyboard, it goes away and patiently waits for the next time it is needed. Have FUN DearWebby

You can buy it at any hardware store. In a pinch, you can try using some non-stick vegetable oil on both the lock and key. You can also try dipping your key in talcum powder and inserting it in the lock. All of those items will ensure that your locksmith will charge you extra, because they are a pain in the nuisance to clean out off a lock. Actually, I got the term "pain in the nuisance" from Garry, the guy who taught me most of what I know about locksmithing and burglar alarm security. When a lock gets stubborn, it's not from lack of lubrication, but because of dirt causing friction. Adding more stuff, especially stuff that will attract and hold even more dirt, just makes the inevitable cleaning more expensive. One of the few sprays that won't make things worse is Crown Mold Release spray. It has a very thin carrier fluid that helps flushing grit out, and it covers the parts with a dry, waxy dirt repellant coating. Unless you locked yourself into the garage and need to get out, your best bet is to take the lock to a locksmith, and tell him right away, that you have restrained yourself from spraying weird stuff into the lock.

The CIA loses track of one of its operatives, and so calls in one of their top spy hunters. The CIA boss says, "All I can tell you is that his name is Murphy and that he's somewhere in Ireland. If you think you've located him, tell him the code words, 'The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning.' If it's really him, he'll answer, 'Yes, and for mist at noon as well.'" So the spy hunter goes to Ireland and stops in a bar in one of the small towns. He says to the bartender, "Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for a guy named Murphy." The bartender replies, "You're going to have to be more specific because, around here, there are lots of guys named Murphy. There's Murphy the Baker, who runs the pastry shop on the next block. There's Murphy the Banker, who's president of our local savings bank. There's Murphy the Blacksmith, who works at the stables. And, as a matter of fact, my name is Murphy, too." Hearing this, the spy hunter figures he might as well try the code words on the bartender, so he says, "The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning." The bartender replies, "Oh, you're looking for Murphy the Spy. He lives in the green house right down the street." ____________________________________________________

His brother, of course, agreed. It was not until the brother was accompanying the casket down the aisle, however, that he realized that he had neglected to ask the sex of the deceased. This was information that he would need for his remarks during the service. As he approached the first pew where the deceased's relatives were seated he nodded toward the casket and whispered to one woman, "Brother or sister?" "Cousin," she replied. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Lynn for this story: As the owner of a clunker, I was used to dealing with a variety of car breakdowns. One day at the supermarket, just after I had filled my trunk with groceries, I noticed a stream of fluid pouring out of the bottom of the car. I knew I had to get home before the car was once again out of action. When I arrived I asked my husband to take a look at the problem. Expecting the worst, I braced myself for his diagnosis. When he came back in, he was smiling. "It's apple juice," he said. ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joel Davis, 22, NYC, New York Ivy Leaguer, Nobel nominee with long list of liberal bona fides arrested for child porn and activity with kids An Ivy Leaguer who ran an organization advocating for the end of sexual violence has been arrested in New York for trying to set up a sexual tryst with children as young as two. Joel Davis was charged with attempting to sexually exploit a child, enticing a child to engage in sexual activity and possessing child pornography, The Washington Post reported. What makes the case so egregious is that Davis, a 22-year-old Columbia University student, is the founding executive director of the international group Youth to End Sexual Violence, focused on child victims, the newspaper reported. He has worked alongside actress Angelina Jolie and was reportedly nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Davis is also an active Hillary Clinton supporter.

He has worked alongside actress Angelina Jolie and was reportedly nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Davis is also a Hillary Clinton supporter. And his liberal bona fides don’t stop there, as he served as a youth ambassador for the United Nations. More from the Washington Post: He was the founding executive director of the international organization Youth to End Sexual Violence. He served as a youth ambassador for the United Nations special representative on sexual violence in conflict. He was on the steering committee of the International Campaign to Stop Rape & Gender Violence in Conflict, a group of more than 5,000 human rights organizations and experts worldwide. The Post reported that, according to a federal criminal complaint, Davis exchanged text messages with undercover FBI agents, trying to arrange meetings with a 9-year-old girl, an 8-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy. He allegedly sent sexually explicit photos and videos of children and infants, and was clear in his communications with the FBI agents that he wanted to engage in sex with children of any age The complain also said Davis admitted to meeting a 13-year-old boy on the dating app Grindr, speaking with him on Snapchat. He engaged in sexual activity with the child in June at his Manhattan apartment. U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman called Davis’s alleged actions “unfathomable.” “Davis started an organization devoted to stopping sexual violence, while allegedly engaged in the duplicitous behavior of sharing explicit images of infants engaged in sexual activity,” Berman said, according to The Post. “The conduct alleged against Joel Davis is as unfathomable as it is sickening,” he said, adding that “law enforcement will keep its watchful eye on the darkest corners of the internet to bring predators to justice.”
Tech Support Pits From: Carlie Re: Screen Savers Dear Webby I got all kinds of mail telling me that I need to buy a screen saver to protect my monitor. Is there any truth to that? Carlie Dear Carlie No truth to that at all. Today's monitors don't need screen savers. If you need to hide netflix or farmville from nosy co-workers, you can use the built in screen savers. There is a big choice, all the way from pitch-black to slide show. Next company party take pictures of all the boneheads and drunks, and put them into a new folder. Then Select slideshow or photos for the screen saver, and browse to THAT folder. You can select the time it waits before starting, and how long it shows each picture. Charge $25 to remove somebody's picture. You can also take screen shots of the spreadsheets you work on, and put them into a folder. Make that one flip slides quickly. On one old machine, where I use a traditional screen saver, I use Mystify from Windows 3.3. It still works. There are also screen savers built in. Just right-click on the desktop, Personalize, Screen Saver (right hand bottom) and select one. You can also google for "Free screen savers" and get all kinds of them for your particular version of Windows. For Gramma's birthday you can make her a screensaver with all the pictrues you got that she would love to see. Put them onto a camera chip or thumb drive, and sneak them into a new folder on her machine, then set a screen saver to use those pictures. I bet it will make her cry! Have FUN DearWebby

Since this is their first party and the wife hasn't done much cooking, the husband suggests they order out for Chinese food and she could bake a cake for dessert. She agrees, but on Friday afternoon, the wife calls her husband in tears. "The only recipe I can find is for a cake that will feed four," she says. "Why don't you just double the recipe?" her husband asks. Just before quitting time the husband gets another call from her, and this time she is frantic. "I just can't do it," she says. "It's impossible." "Now, now, what's the matter?" "Well, I doubled everything, just like you said," she tells him, "and it's ready to go in the oven." "Then what's the problem?" he asks. The wife sobs. "The book says that the cake must be baked at 350 degrees. I've checked the oven and it doesn't go up to 700 degrees!"

>From David I'm also a counselor who helps coordinate support groups for visually-impaired adults. Many participants have a condition known as macular degeneration, which makes it difficult for them to distinguish facial features. I had just been assigned to a new group and was introducing myself. Knowing that many in the group would not be able to see me well, I jokingly said, "For those of you who can't see me, I've been told that I look like a cross between Paul Newman and Robert Redford." Immediately, one woman called out, "We're not THAT blind!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Inexpensive Desk Make a great desk top out of an old smooth door (knobs removed). Use short filing cabinets or milk crates to support the door. This is a great way to recycle old doors you may have sitting in your garage. Some sanding and staining and then a few coats of marine spar varnish will make it look really great and totally impervious to ANY spills. The darker you stain the door, the easier it will be on your eyes. If the door is painted white, paint it brown or dark green. The slate green that you may remember from old school blackboards is the easiest on the eyes. Have FUN! DerWebby Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________

"Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asks. The two Americans just stare at him. "Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?" he tries. The two continue to stare. "Parlare Italiano?" No response. "Hablan ustedes Espanol?" Still nothing. The Swiss guy drives off, extremely disgusted. The first American turns to the second and says, "Y'know, maybe we should learn a foreign language." "Why?" says the other.

While digging a shaft into the German homeland, German scientists discovered small pieces of copper at 50 meters. After studying these pieces for a long time, Germany announced that the ancient Germans 25,000 years ago had a nationwide telephone network. Naturally, the British government was not that easily impressed. The British ordered their own scientists to dig even deeper. At a depth of 100 meters, they discovered small pieces of glass. Soon the British announced that the ancient Brits 35,000 years ago already had a nationwide fiber net. Israeli scientists were outraged. They dug 50, 100, and 200 meters underground, but found absolutely nothing. The Israelis concluded that the ancient Hebrews 55,000 years ago had cellular telephones.

After driving all night, a man arrived in a small town where he decided to stop in the local park and catch some sleep. Just as he dozed off, there was a knock on the window. Outside the car, was a jogger. "Excuse me, can you give me the time?" the jogger inquired. "Groggily, the man replied, "It's 6:27." The man closed his eyes and just as he dozed off there was another knock on the window. There stood another jogger who said, "I'm sorry to disturb you. Do you have the time?" Struggling to keep up his spirits he replied, "It's 6:34." The man rolled up the window but realizing that this could go on indefinitely, he took paper and pen and created a sign which read: "I DO NOT KNOW THE TIME." He stuck the sign in the window, closed his eyes, and was barely asleep when there came yet another tap on the window. The man looked and sure enough, there was another jogger. He disgustedly rolled down the window and said, "Yeah, what is it?" The jogger replied, "It's 6:42." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Uneven Cake Layers Sometimes you bake a cake layer that comes out just a little bit lopsided. Level the layer with a serrated knife. Then apply a coat of frosting to the rough edge leftover from the cut. Let the frosting dry before frosting the rest of the cake. A serrated knife sounds rather barbaric to me! Cut some leftover shelving or other wood with the same thickness as a layer of the cake to just fit into your cake pans and sand and varnish it nicely, because some day it will become a heirloom. After you dump the cake, put the wood spacer in and the cake on top of that. Then use the edge of the cake pan as a guide to saw it into layers with dental floss. Remove the cake and put the top layer onto the spacer and trim the top to be precisely the same as the bottom. You will get the same laser smooth cut that the professionals get (who use that same old trick). If you don't have any scrap wood, a book or a stack of junk mail in a ziplock bag works fine too. If you do a lot of cakes in a row, tie the ends of the dental floss to wooden spoons or clothes pegs so that you don't cut your hands. Have FUN!

A customer was continually bothering the waiter in a restaurant; first, he'd asked that the air conditioning be turned up because he was too hot, then he asked it be turned down cause he was too cold, and so on for about half an hour. Surprisingly, the waiter was very patient, walking back and forth and never once getting angry. So finally, a second customer asked why didn't they just throw out the pest. "Oh I don't care." said the waiter with a smile. "We don't have an air conditioner." ____________________________________________________

Authorities say an Arkansas thief got his just deserts when he tried to pay for a meal using the waitress' stolen credit card. Police spokesman Lt. David De Foor said in a news release that officers arrested 21-year-old Shamon West on Tuesday at Shannon's Restaurant in Pine Bluff. He says that "having no desire to pay for the fellow's meal," waitress Flora Lunsford called to report that the man had tried paying for his meal with her stolen credit card. De Foor says officers found other items on West that had been in Lunsford's purse when it was stolen from her car Sunday at a nearby gas station while she was inside the station, including her Social Security card and driver's license. West is being held at the Jefferson County jail in lieu of $2,840 bond on forgery and theft by receiving charges.

"My husband spends his nights ... calling out to owls," she said. "That's odd," the neighbor replied.

___________________________________________________ I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. "Do you need some help?" I asked. She replied, "I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door un-locker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenient store) would have a battery to fit this?" "Hmmm, I Dunno. Do you have an alarm too?" I asked. "No, just this remote thingy," she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, "Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries...it's a long walk." ___________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ While on a car trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. After finishing their meal, the elderly woman left her glasses on the table, but she didn't miss them until they were back on the highway. By then, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around. The elderly man fussed and complained all the way back to the restaurant. He called his wife every bad name he could think of. When they finally arrived at the restaurant, and the woman got out of the car to retrieve her glasses, the man yelled to her, "And while you're in there, you might as well get my hat, too." ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Cedella Roman, 19 White Rock, BC French Teen detained for two weeks after jogging across Canada-US border A young French woman was held by US border control for two weeks after she accidentally crossed the border when she went for a jog. Cedella Roman, 19, ran across the border just south of the town of White Rock in Canada’s British Columbia, into the US state of Washington on the evening of May 21. She headed back when the tide began to come in, going up toward a dirt path before stopping to take a photo of the stunning scenery, then turned around to retrace her steps. It was then that she was apprehended by two US Border Patrol officers who told her she had crossed illegally and had been caught on camera. ‘I told him I had not done it on purpose, and that I didn’t understand what was happening,’ she said. Roman protested that she hadn’t seen any warning signs, and didn’t initially anticipate how serious the matter would become. ‘I said to myself, well I may have crossed the border – but they’ll probably only give me a fine or they’ll tell me to go back to Canada or they’ll give me a warning.’ Complicating matters, Roman, who had come to Canada to visit her mother and work on her English, wasn’t carrying any government-issued ID on her at the time. She was transferred by the officers to the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center, run by the Department of Homeland Security, 200 kilometers (120 miles) south. ‘They put me in the caged vehicles and brought me into their facility,’ she said. ‘They asked me to remove all my personal belongings with my jewelry, they searched me everywhere. ‘Then I understood it was getting very serious, and I started to cry a bit.’ When she reached the centre, she contacted her mother, Christiane Ferne, who quickly reached the centre with her passport and study permits – but the workers at the site said the documents would have to be verified by Canadian authorities. She was held at the centre for two weeks before the matter was resolved and she was allowed to return to Canada. Ferne said the lack of clear signs had led to her daughter’s predicament. ‘It’s like a trap… anybody can be caught at the border like this,’ she said. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to CBC that Roman was discharged on June 6. But neither the ICE nor Immigration Canada would comment further on the case, citing privacy concerns. A spokesperson for the US Customs and Border Protection told CBC that anyone who enters the US outside an official port of entry and without inspection has crossed the border illegally and will be detained. ‘This applies regardless of whether or not the individual claims to have inadvertently crossed the border,’ the department said. The Peace Arch and huge US border station are about a quarter mile south of the border but clearly visible from two miles away. The Canadian Welcome sign is about that far north of the border. The beach is about 50 feet from the border station. The customs officers have always looked out the windows on the West, just in case some bikinis were bouncing by. I used to party there with friends in the early 70s. Even then you had to have some legal ID to show, if the customs officers asked for it. It was always a friendly and low key affair, but they made sure you carried legal ID, even in those days. In those days and until 9/11 a drivers license was enough for Canadians to cross the border into the US and for Americans to cross into Canada. On the road there was always a lot of commuting to work, Americans working in BC and Canadians working in the US. During rush hour, having a hard hat or lunch kit on the dash got you waved through with a nod. 9/11 changed that quite brutally. They probably suspected that she was scouting a route for illegal immigrants, and telling everybody in France how easy it was to get into the USA from Canada. Looks like they smartened her up!

Planning a weekend of entertaining guests, I made a list of things I needed to do, including taking food out of the freezer and grocery shopping. As it happened, a friend whom I had been promising to take to lunch asked if we could make it that Friday. So, hopping into the car, I taped my "to do" list to the dashboard and went and picked her up. As she settled into the car, her face dropped. "Thanks a lot!" she sulked. Then I glanced at my list and saw the first item: "Take out the Turkey."

Misty Michelle Brock, 39, was charged with false 911 calls, resisting an officer without violence and making a false report to law enforcement by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office. She was additionally charged with possession of paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell. According to JCSO, Brock called dispatch reporting that her two children, ages two and five, had gone missing from her vehicle at the Chevron Station on Highway 231 and that she believed they were in a semi-truck that had just departed the area. The call triggered a response from JSCO, along with FHP, Cottondale Police, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office and Houston County Sheriff’s Office as a BOLO (Be on the Lookout) was issued for the semi-truck. During the course of the investigation, deputies noted that Brock displayed several signs that she was under the influence of an illegal substance. A review of security footage showed no children in Brock’s car. Brock was allegedly unable to provide consistent information about her travel itinerary or even what her children were wearing. A JCSO Investigator traveled to the children’s father’s home, where they were located and determined to have been all day. Contact had also been made with Brock’s mother who provided the same information. When deputies tried to relay this information to Brock she stated those children were impostors, according to the press release. During the investigation, several items of paraphernalia were allegedly found in Brock’s purse, along with five grams of “high grade” methamphetamine. As she was being transported to the jail, Brock was reportedly claiming to see her children under vehicles.
Tech Support Pits From: Helga Re: MS Office or Libre Office Dear Webby What is the difference between MS Office and Open Office? I have to get one of them. Which one do you recommend? Helga Dear Helga The biggest diffeernce that I can see is that you can install Open Office on a shirt pocket USB hard drive and run it from there when you plug it into any computer's USB port. And unlike Microsoft Office, it is free. With MS Office you would need to buy a license and pay annual license fees for each machine, with the free Open Office you got everything, from settings and preferences to your documents, spreadsheets and pictures on your portable hard drive or thumb drive, and basically just "borrow" the keybaord and the printer and hardware of the computer that you plug it into. The included features are about the same. Whichever one you learn, that's the one you will be good at, and that one will be your preferred choice. There is no single feature that I an think of that is available in only one of them, except maybe the ability to create PDF files. You can do that with Libre Office, but if you have MS Office, you need to shell out another $450 to get Adobe Acrobat Professional to do the same. Microsoft was going to include it, but backed off at the last minute, when Adobe threatened to sue. Seems there was more copying than inspiration involved. Since you don't have either one yet, and would not have to un-learn and trade the peculiarities of one of them for those of the other, I would recommend Libre Office. You can download it free at https://www.libreoffice.org/ Have FUN DearWebby

A private secondary school in Oxfordshire, England is banning its male students from wearing shorts during the summer months, and is instead requesting that they wear a more "gender neutral" ensemble that includes that staple of men's athletic wear: The skirt. According to the Daily Mail, Chiltern Edge Secondary School's rule change comes after an unfavorable ruling by a government agency tasked with overseeing educational standards. School leaders said the skirts were a "more formal" alternative to shorts, regardless of how uncomfortable they might make male students at the school. Unsurprisingly, parents are complaining about the bizarre school dress code, which is part of a larger trend of schools adopting "gender neutral" uniforms to make transgender students feel more at home, and alienate the straight ones.
Tech Support Pits From: SueEllea Re: Coping with hotels Dear Webby In my new positon, I have to do a fair bit of traveling, and so far I don't like the computer part of it one bit. My daughter told me that you travel a lot and have written about that before. Well, you haven't, since I signed up. Hopefully the other subscribers won't be bored if you write an update on your travel tips. Thanks SueElla Dear SueElla The biggest nuisance with traveling is that most hotels use high tables and low chairs. Nobody knows why, but even hotels that claim to be business oriented and have office type swivel chairs, use ridiculously high tables. Most hotel tables come from China and just like un-hemmed bargain pants, the legs are way too long and need to be trimmed for the actually needed length. Unfortunately, that is too challenging for hotel staff. I cope with that problem by carrying a 5/16" thick piece of plexiglass trimmed to precisely fit into the lid of my big wheeled carryon. Well, nowadays I can't take it on board a plane any more and I have to check it through, but that piece of plexiglass has travelled with me for about 20 years. When I get to a hotel, I jam it into a partly opened dresser or night table drawer, and set my laptop on that. Then the separate keyboard, that I also take along, is at the perfect height for maximum typing speed while sitting in a low hotel chair. Yes, I take a regular keyboard along, with proper numeric keypad. I also take along a 5 button mouse. I am used to using the side buttons for copying and pasting. I also take along the following: Wireless DSL modem card 15 foot network cable 20 foot telephone cable Female-Female telephone cable connector Telephone line one-to-two splitter 20 foot light weight extension cord (Lamp Cord) Two 5 watt LED lightbulbs Print-out of Earthlink access numbers for the areas that I travel to. Naturally, I try to go to hotels that have wireless high- speed connections, but sometimes the room is too far away from the transmitter or the max number of people are already logged on by the time I get set up. Then old fashioned dial-up is better than nothing. I have to say that Earthlink has never let me down, even overseas, however, since their support was moved to Asia, it has deteriorated. Instead of joking with a valley girl, you are now arguing with somebody, who does not speak Engrish very well. That is why you need that print-out of all the local access numbers. Have FUN DearWebby

A scout for one of the leading colleges went to the office of the athletic director and announced, "Have I got an athlete for you! This guy can play every sport and excels at every position. He is absolutely the finest athlete I have ever seen play." The athletic director was very impressed but had to ask the question, "But how is he scholastically?" The scout replied, "He makes straight "A"s in every subject. However, I must tell you his "B"s are a little crooked." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Hanging Tools If you enough wall space, hang shovels and other garden tools upside down on your walls. For smaller tools, you can get a peg board that you can mount on your wall and fit with a variety of pegs and hooks and store tools that you need to have handy. You can also get mop closet organizers that grip the handles properly with soft cushion grips. That way wet tools don't drool down the handle and leave a blister causing crust, and it helps to keep the lower end of the handle from drying out and getting sloppy. A tight fitting tool tires you out a lot less. A mop handle rack with six spring loaded cusion grips is usually around $4.95 and holds anything except heavy sledge hammers. Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ "TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR DEAD NEIGHBORS" If you share a home with a friend or relative, be thankful. They will give you company and support. And if you happen to die, they will miss you dearly, especially when the dishes start to pile up. Not everyone is so lucky. A 40-year-old woman in Marburg, Germany, lay dead in her apartment for more than 10 months before police found her body. The body was discovered only because the landlord cared enough to ask, "Where's my darn rent?" The woman's neighbors hadn't noticed anything strange. They had apparently assumed she was hibernating. Just like Al Gore. Such cases seem to be a major problem in Germany, where death often arrives a few months, even a few years, before the undertaker. That's partly because of the country's efficient banking system, which makes automatic bill-paying so easy, even dead people can do it. In 1998, a Hamburg man was found dead on his sofa. He had expired five years earlier, but, sitting in front of his television, he looked just as lively as most men. The only thing missing was a sign that said, "I'd get up to answer the door, but I'm dead tired." Unfortunately Germany isn't the only country where dead people are taking up valuable apartment space. Russian workers once found a man's skeletal remains in a room in a communal apartment. He had been dead for five years, but the families sharing the other rooms were too preoccupied to realize that a room was available. Even people with roommates sometimes find themselves neglected, as did 43-year-old William Everett Delaney. The Key West, Florida, man lay dead on his kitchen floor for two months. His 78-year-old roommate recalled that Delaney had fallen on the floor, but thought he was still alive, perhaps doing some close-up research on the kitchen tiles. The roommate offered to take Delaney to the hospital or get him something to eat or drink, but when Delaney didn't reply, the roommate made the only logical conclusion: Delaney was very stubborn. The 78-year-old stepped over Delaney's body for two months, probably shaking his head and thinking, "I wish he'd get up and help me clean the kitchen. It's starting to get an awful smell." Nobody deserves to die so anonymously. That's why it's important to check on your neighbors regularly, especially if they're elderly. Just knock on their doors and ask if they're OK. You: "Hello! Is anyone there?" Female neighbor (shouting from behind her door): "Whatever you're selling, we don't want any. That includes religion." You: "I'm not selling anything. I'm your neighbor. Just stopping by to make sure you aren't dead." Neighbor: "Dead? No, I don't think I'm dead. But I'm not sure about my husband. He hasn't moved from the couch since 1983. Do you think that's abnormal?" You: "Only if he isn't holding the remote." If you don't want to disturb your neighbors, keep a lookout for signs that they may have died years ago. Here are a few telltales: ---The grass around their home is so tall, the Boy Scouts want to camp there. ---Their blue Volvo has gradually turned white, getting a free paint job from the birds. ---They have a sign on their driveway that reads, "Grover Cleveland for President." ---They're still flying the confederate flag. ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Stormi Winters, 29 St. Johns County Jail, Florida Florida woman, clocked at 73 mph in 40 mph zone, admits to 'swerving' and being drunk A St. Johns County woman was jailed on a misdemeanor DUI charge after she was pulled over in the 1800 block of A1A in St. Augustine. Stormi Winters, 29, was stopped at 11:24 p.m. on Wednesday by a St. Johns County deputy, an arrest report said. Deputies said Winters was spotted driving erratically in her 2016 Kia on A1A. The arrest report said that Winters was speeding and "violently turning left" instead of merging. Winters was clocked going 73 mph in a 40 mph zone, deputies said. She was asked if she knew why she was pulled over, she replied, "Because I was swerving all over the road." When she was asking why she was swerving, she replied, "Because I have been drinking," the report said. Winters was texting "frantically" on her phone when she was pulled over, the arrest report said. She told deputies that she consumed "two or three" drinks at "Dunes." She was trying to get home to her 6-year-old son, the report said. Winters is being held in the St. Johns County Jail on $1,000 bond.
Tech Support Pits om: Leonard Re: Launcher Dear Webby You once mentioned a program launcher to replace shortcut icons. I use a lot of programs that I don't really want to advertise on my work machine with shortcut icons, so that launcher would be a good solution, if it is still available. Thanks Leonard Dear Leonard Yes, launchy is still available. http://launchy.net/ Millions of us just love it! For those of you, who don't know about it, it is a microscopic little program that launches whatever you want, by typing the first letter or two of that program name, and hitting Enter. ALT Spacebar opens Launchy. Then you type, for example W it suggests "Word" and you hit Enter. WORD starts up, as if you had found the shortcut icon and double-clicked it. A for Ancestry. H for humor letter, and so on. If you have many programs starting with W, it shows you a list of them, for example Wordpad Weather Wikipedia You use the arrow keys to highlight the one you want, and hit ENTER. You never have to take your fingers off the keyboard and wrestle the cat for the mouse. If you type numbers, it is a calculator. There are countless different "skins" available. I use a very basic black background with a white entry line with black text. You can use the default or pick whatever "skin" you like. Just pick one and figure out what you would like instead. It would take you years to try them all. Have FUN DearWebby

Louise Turpin, left, and David Turpin, right, sit in court for a preliminary hearing on June 20, 2018. Prosecutors say the couple beat and tortured their children, kept them chained to their beds and starved them- all while the family dogs were kept clean and well-fed. They were arrested on January 14 after their 17-year-old daughter escaped from a window and called 911 on a deactivated cell phone. The Turpin siblings are comprised of six minors and seven adults, ranging in age from 2 years old to 29. David Turpin, 56, and Louise Turpin, 49, pleaded not guilty to more than 40 charges, including torture, false imprisonment, abuse of a dependent adult and child abuse. David Turpin also pleaded not guilty to one count of lewd conduct with a minor. Despite the horror of the 911 call, the girl's voice sounded remarkably calm and clear while relating her experience. But the call, as well as police who responded to the scene, provided several disturbing new details from the home and the degree to which the parents controlled their children's lives. "I can't breathe because of how dirty the house is," the Turpin daughter said on the call. "We don't take baths. I don't know if we need to go to the doctor." Accounts of abuse and starvation Other Turpin children told investigators they were abused. A 14-year-old girl said Louise Turpin threw her down the stairs when she was caught in her mom's room, investigator Brett Rooker of the Riverside County Sheriff's Office testified. "She said she was terrified of her mother," he said. An 11-year-old girl said that Louise Turpin would often punch them with a closed fist and hit her with an open hand, Riverside County Deputy Sheriff Daniel Brown testified. The girl said that sometimes, her mother pulled her hair so forcefully it would lift her off the ground, Brown said. The girl said she was "always hungry," he further testified. The children were fed jalapeno baloney sandwiches while the parents ate Jersey Mike's, pizza and fries, he said. The girl said Louise Turpin would buy apple juice but the children weren't allowed to drink it. She kept pie in the fridge or pantry until it became moldy and then threw it away. A doctor who treated the family said the 11-year-old girl was in the worst condition when the examined her, Patrick Morris, Supervising Investigator for Riverside County District Attorney, testified. She had a body weight percentile of .01 and her mid arm circumference was equal to that of a 4.5-month-old baby, Morris testified. The doctor said she had psychosocial dwarfism, stunted growth due to living in an environment that is abusive or neglected. The 15-year-old boy had difficulty walking, vitamin D deficiency, and visible scoliosis. He told the doctor that he wanted to kill animals and could predict the future, Morris testified. The 17-year-old Turpin daughter who made the 911 call weighed about 97 pounds with a BMI of 2.2% when doctors first examined her, Morris said. In other parts of the call, told the operator that her parents were abusive and had chained up two of her sisters, and that she thought her father had guns in the house. She also said she hadn't taken a bath in almost a year. Riverside Deputy Manuel Campos, who responded to the 911 call, testified on Wednesday that the girl appeared much younger than 17. "She appears not to bathe regularly," he also said. "There was odor emitting from her body of one that doesn't bathe regularly." The girl was shaking on the call and "scared to death" from the daring escape out of the window, Campos said. She said that she was kept in the room with her sisters for about 20 hours a day, and that she was only allowed to leave the room to eat, use the restroom and brush her teeth, Campos said. If she broke the rules, she would be disciplined in the form of knocking on the head, pulling of hair, or being smacked in the face. After she watched a Justin Bieber video on a cell phone, her mother choked her, she told Campos. In addition to the physical abuse, there was a sexual incident with her father, the girl told police. She said her father pulled her pants down, grabbed her and put her on his lap. She tried to push him away, and pulled her pants up, Campos said. He also tried to force kisses on her mouth, she told Campos, and this happened about 10 times. The girl said her father told her not to tell anyone, Campos said. They remain in custody in lieu of $12 million bail each after pleading not guilty to all of their charges.

A fellow got up one Saturday morning with the odd feeling that something about this day was to be different. Something unusual WAS about to happen today. He glanced out the window at the thermometer: 33 degrees. He went downstairs - the clock had stopped at 3 o'clock. He picked up the newspaper and read the date: the 3rd of the month. Threes - that was it! He grabbed the paper and flipped it open to the racing section. Sure enough in the 3rd race, there was a horse named Trio! The fellow hurried to the bank, drew out his life savings and bet it all on the horse to win. The horse finished 3rd. ____________________________________________________

Austin Cooper, 21, of Willingboro, was charged with first-degree strict liability for drug-induced death, the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office said in a statement. On December 26, a family member found Madison McDonald unresponsive at her home in Evesham Township's Marlton section. She was barely alive and transported to Virtua Marlton Hospital, and later flown to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. She died on December 28. Authorities investigating McDonald's death found that Cooper delivered 10 bags of heroin to the home before she died. He was charged at the time possessing and dealing heroin. Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina has pledged to "aggressively" pursue the strict liability charge when possible in prosecution, to help fight the opioid epidemic. On that charge, a dealer can face 10 to 20 years in state prison, as opposed to three to five years for drug distribution.

_____________________________________________________ Two priests died at the same time and met Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter said, "I'd like to get you guys in now but our computer's down. You'll have to go back to Earth for about a week but you can't go back as humans. What'll it be?" The first priest says, "I've always wanted to be an eagle, soaring above the Rocky mountains." "So be it," says St. Peter and off flies the first priest. The second priest mulls this over for a moment and asks, "Will any of this week 'count', St. Peter?" "No, I told you the computer's down. There's no way we can keep track of what you're doing. The week's a freebie." "In that case," says the second priest, "I've always wanted to be a stud." "So be it," says St. Peter and the second priest disappears. A week goes by, the computer is fixed, and the Lord tells St. Peter to recall the two priests. "Will you have any trouble locating them?" He asks. "The first one should be easy," says St. Peter. "He's somewhere over the Rockies, flying with the eagles. But the second one could prove to be more difficult." "Why?" asketh the Lord.

Burglary suspect Jan Sivak didn’t follow this advice and was snapped with his feet hanging out at his home in Halifax. West Yorkshire Police then posted the picture on social media with the caption: ‘He will not be winning any awards for hide-and-seek champion soon.’ Sivak, from Halifax, had gone on the run after failing to surrender to bail at Bradford Magistrates Court on Tuesday. He had been accused of stealing Ł4,500 in cash from a fish and chip shop. After he was caught he eventually appeared in court and admitted failing to surrender, which he received a 14 day sentence for. Gulfraz Khan, defending, said Sivak had tried to get to court on the day of his appearance but was unsuccessful. Sivak pleaded not guilty to burglary of a non-dwelling and was remanded into custody until July 28 for trial at Bradford Crown Court.
Tech Support Pits From: Brenda Re: Is there any allowance for auto-responders? Dear Webby I can understand that with your volume of mail you consider autoresponders a silly and unnhecessary nuisance. I use Hoitmail and Yahoo mail, and as you probably know, they are a bit flakey and one never knkows if mail to me actually got through. Woould an auto-responder be OK in my case, telling people that their mail did get to me and will be answered soon? Brenda Dear Brenda Get Gmail. It is free, and very reliable. I have used it since it got started, and have not lost any mail. Some got accidentally sorted into the spam or trash folder, but it DID arrive. Using an autoresponder because you are sleeping or on the potty is silly. If somebody expects an instant reply, then you should tell them to get a life and consider that other people have lives too! I answer mail at all times of day or night. Depending on the time zone, people might be sleeping or cooking or shopping or working away from their computer. So, what? Sooner or later they will see my mail, and that will be soon enough. I also know that many people use their employer's computer for their email. If their address has the domain of some company, then I know not to expect answers on the weekend. I do NOT need an autoresponder telling me that Ms Hortensia Buttflower will return to work on Monday. The same probably applies to you and your contacts. If you don't reply instantly, the smarter ones will realize that you might be working on something else, or sleeping. Once you get Gmail or any reliable mail, forget about having to be a nuisance.
