They loaded up Peter's station wagon and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. They pulled into a nearby farm house and asked the attractive lady of the house if they could spend the night. "I'm recently widowed," she explained, "and I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house." "Not to worry," Peter said, "we'll be happy to sleep in the barn." Nine months later, Peter got a letter from the widow's attorney. He then went up to visit his friend Bob and said, "Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow at the farm we stayed at?" "Yes, I do." "Did you happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and have sex with her?" "Yes, I have to admit that I did." "Did you happen to use my name instead of telling her your name?" Bob's face turned red and he said, "Yeah, I'm afraid I did." "Well, thanks! She just died and left me everything!" ______________________________________________________ After a two-week criminal trial in a very high profile bank robbery case, the judge turns to the jury foreman and asks, "Has the jury reached a verdict in this case?" "Yes, we have, your honor," the foreman responded. "Would you please pass it to me," the judge declared, as he motioned for the bailiff to retrieve the verdict slip from the foreman and deliver it to him. After the judge reads the verdict himself, he delivers the verdict slip back to his bailiff to be returned to the foreman and instructs the foreman, "Please read your verdict to the court." "We find the defendant Not Guilty of all four counts of bank robbery," stated the foreman. The family and friends of the defendant jump for joy at the verdict and hug each other as they shout expressions of divine gratitude. The man's attorney turns to his client and asks, "So, what do you think about that?" The defendant, with a bewildered look on his face turns to his attorney and says, "I'm real confused here. Does this mean that I have to give all the money back, or do I have to do it again?" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Frederick II, the eighteenth-century king of Prussia, fancied himself an enlightened monarch, and in some respects he was. On one occasion he is supposed to have interested himself in conditions in the Berlin prison and was escorted through it so that he might speak to the prisoners. One after the other, the prisoners fell to their knees before him, bewailing their lot and, predictably, protesting their utter innocence of all charges that had been brought against them. Only one prisoner remained silent, and finally Frederick's curiosity was aroused. "You," he called. "You there." The prisoner looked up. "Yes, Your Majesty?" "Why are you here?" "Armed robbery, Your Majesty." "And are you guilty?" "Entirely guilty, Your Majesty. I deserve my punishment." At this Frederick rapped his cane sharply on the ground and said, "Warden, release this guilty wretch at once. I will not have him here in jail where by example he will corrupt all the splendid innocent people who occupy it." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lacie Faye Schuman, 32, Jacksonville, Florida Florida woman arrested for DUI, again, said she 'knows the game' A woman has been arrested for driving under the influence with a unrestrained toddler in the vehicle, according to a St. Johns County Sheriff's Office police report.

Dear Webby the size of each email that we can receive and now I am having trouble receiving any email with pictures. I wondered if you can give me a referral to Gmail? The Service Tech from my ISP said he thought you could receive any size email through it, and I have read several times in the Humor Letter where you speak pretty highly of it. I went to Google and read about it and really would like to try it. I hope you can help me. Thanks! Beverly M Dear Beverly You don't need referals anymore. Just go to Yes, with gmail there are no kindergarten limits. Just take your time to customize it to your liking, and you'll be quite happy with it. You can even use it with regular POP programs like Eudora or Outlook, not just with it's web interface. Have FUN! DearWebby An Irishman walks into a bar and says "Bartender, one round for everyone, on me!" The bartender says, "Well, Murph, seems you're in a really good mood tonight, hm?" Murphy says, "Oh, you can bet on it! I just got hired by the city to go around and remove all the money from parking meters. I start on Monday!" The bartender congratulates the man and proceeds to pour the round. Monday evening arrives. Murphy comes back into the bar and says "Bartender, TWO rounds for everyone, on me!" The bartender says, "Well now! If you're so happy just over having this new job, I can just imagine how happy you'll be when you get your paycheck!" Murphy looks at the bartender with a wondrous look on his face, pulls out a handful of quarters from his pocket, and says "You mean they'll PAY me on top of it?"

It was 6 p.m., and I was about to leave the coin laundry where I was employed. My boss called me over and asked if I would mind dropping off someone's laundry on my way home. "It's for my cousin," she apologized, "who's eight months pregnant and can't get out much anymore." I cheerfully agreed and, driving to the address, knocked at the door. A little girl, the sister-to-be, answered. "Hi, there," I said with a big smile. "Is your mommy home?" Holding up the white bundle of clothes, I explained, "I have a delivery for her." The child's mouth dropped, and her eyes went wide. "Mom!" she shrieked, "come quick! It's the stork!"

Cajun math A Missouri farmer passed away and left 17 mules to his three sons. The instructions left in the will said that the oldest boy was to get one-half, the second oldest one-third, and the youngest one-ninth. The three sons, recognizing the difficulty of dividing 17 mules into these fractions, began to argue. Their uncle heard about the argument, hitched up his mule and drove out to settle the matter. He added his mule to the 17, making 18. The oldest therefore got one-half, or nine, the second oldest got one-third, or six, and the youngest son got one-ninth, or two. Adding up 9, 6 and 2 equals 17. The uncle, having settled the argument, hitched up his mule and drove home. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Homemade Jigsaw Puzzle Make a personalized homemade jigsaw puzzle by gluing a photograph to a piece of 1/4 inch plywood.

One gentleman pleased him by bringing up not only his new book for signature, but reprint editions of his two previous ones as well. "My wife likes your stuff," he remarked apologetically, "I thought I'd give her these signed copies for a birthday present." "A surprise, eh?" hazarded the author. "I'll say," agreed the customer.

The person that was on the 5th floor steps onto the elevator.

_____________________________________________________ A young man asked a rich old man how he made his money. The old guy fingered his worsted wool vest and said this: "Well, son, it was 1932. The depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel. I invested that nickel in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents. The next morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and sold them at 5:00 PM for 20 cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I'd accumulated a fortune of $1.37. Then my wife's father died and left us two million dollars." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Eric McKenna, 60, in jail in England Decades-Old Rapes Solved After Man Pees on Neighbor's Plant A man who raped two women at knifepoint in Britain avoided capture for over 30 years. Then he peed on his neighbor's potted plant. The BBC reports a 21-year-old woman was raped by a man while walking alone in 1983. An 18-year-old woman was raped in a similar situation five years later. The cases remained unsolved and unconnected until 60-year-old Eric McKenna was arrested in 2016 after getting in a dispute with his neighbor that culminated in him urinating in one of her potted plants, according to the Press Association. McKenna was given a warning for harassment and a DNA sample was taken. It was an exact match for samples recovered following both rapes. McKenna was arrested and charged with the rapes last year, Chronicle Live reports. He was sentenced to prison on Friday. "McKenna thought he had got away with his crimes, but a neighborly dispute and a moment of stupidity has landed him in prison for 23 years," Metro quotes Detective Constable Mick Wilson as saying. Wilson says McKenna has "failed to show a glimmer of remorse" for his crimes. As for the neighbor whose plant got peed on, she tells Chronicle Live: “I felt physically sick when I found out what he’d done ... I’m so glad I reported him and these women have got justice." Tech Support Pits From: Amber Rose Re: Cause of missed letters
Dear Webby I keep wondering what the problem is that some people have with getting your newsletter through AOL. I don't have any problem whatsoever, and I have AOL. Could the difference be that they do not have your e-mail address in their Address Book? AOL kept putting it into my Address Book whenever I received a newsletter. I kept deleting it because it was not one of my personal friends that I contact frequently. I was keeping my Address Book just for them. When I realized your newsletters were going into my Spam box, I finally realized. Now you are prominent in my Address Book along with my other friends, and I do believe you are a friend also. Your newsletter is the very best I have ever received. AmberRose Dear AmberRose You are 100% right.

"You're not supposed to talk out loud in church," she hissed at Joel. "Why? Who's going to stop me?" Joel shot back.

St. Peter told him that he would get a mid-size car to drive in heaven since he had cheated on his wife. St.Peter asked the second guy if he had cheated on his wife. "Yes, I'm afraid that I did twice during the time we were married," replied the second man.St. Peter told him that he would receive a compact car to drive in heaven. The third man was asked the same question and he replied, "No I am happy to report that I was happily married and never cheated on my wife!" St. Peter congratulated him and gave him a luxury car to drive in heaven. One day the first two men saw the man in the luxury car crying at a stop light and asked him why he was crying. After all he had gotten a luxury car. He replied, "I just saw my wife go by, and she was on ONE roller skate!" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Alan Estrada, 28, Los Angeles, California CA burglar stops to watch adult movie, gets beat up and held for cops.

A woman was complaining to the neighbour that her husband always came home late, no matter how she tried to stop him. "Take my advice," said the neighbour, "and do what I did. "Once my husband came home at three o'clock in the morning, and from my bed, I called out, 'Is that you, Jim ?' And that cured him." "Cured him!" asked the woman, "but how ?" The neighbour said, "You see, his name is Allan." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Saucer Decoupage Picture Frame If you any have saucers without a cup, you can cut a family picture to fit in the center of the saucer.

He took his new diet seriously, even changing his driving route to avoid his favorite bakery. One morning, however, he arrived at work carrying a gigantic coffeecake. We all scolded him, but his smile remained cherubic. "This is a very special coffeecake," he explained. "I accidentally drove by the bakery this morning and there in the window were a host of goodies. I felt this was no accident, so I prayed, `Lord, if you want me to have one of those delicious coffeecakes, let me have a parking place directly in front of the bakery.'

When the doctor does his history and physical, he discovers that his poor patient has had practically every therapy known to man for his migraines and STILL no improvement. "Listen," says the Doc, "I have migraines, too and the advice I'm going to give you isn't really anything I learned in medical school, but it's advice that I've gotten from my own experience. When I have a migraine, I go home, get in a nice hot bathtub, and soak for a while. Then I have my wife sponge me off with the hottest water I can stand, especially around the forehead. This helps a little. Then I get out of the tub, take her into the bedroom, and even if my head is killing me, I force myself to have sex with her. Almost always, the headache is immediately gone. Now, give it a try, and come back and see me in six weeks." Six weeks later, the patient returns with a big grin. "Doc! I took your advice and it works! It REALLY WORKS! I've had migraines for 17 years and this is the FIRST time anyone has ever helped me!" "Well," says the physician, "I'm glad I could help."

Bruquanna Griffin’s profile picture on Facebook shows her posing with a large gun. “She came and snuck in behind [the counter], opened her purse and started shoveling pistols into her purse,” said Green Acres Sporting Goods salesman Phillip Gazaleh. Gazaleh said employees locked the door so she couldn’t escape before police got there. “She was like, ‘I’m not taking nothing. I just wanted to take a look at the guns.’ Which was obviously a blatant lie. She had the guns in her purse,” Gazaleh said. Griffin has been booked into Duval County jail eight times since 2015 -- mostly theft charges, including one at Beauty Depot in 2016 when police say she got kids involved. The JSO report said Griffin walked into Beauty Depot in Edgewood with three kids and had them help her steal shoes. The report said they ran out into the parking lot where a getaway truck was waiting. Police said Griffin tried to drive off without the kids, and eventually told at least one child to get in the pickup truck bed. “There has to be a certain point where you put an end to it. You can’t be a habitual thief and keep getting out of jail, or keep getting away scot-free. At a certain point, you have to be held accountable for your actions,” Gazaleh said.

Tip provided by ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Cookie for this story: The surgeon told her about a new procedure called "The Knob", where a small knob is placed on the top of a woman's head and can be turned to tighten up her skin to produce the effect of a brand new face lift. Of course, the woman wanted "The Knob." Over the course of the years, the woman tightened the knob, and the effects were wonderful, the woman remained young looking and vibrant. After fifteen years, the woman returned to the surgeon with two problems: "All these years, everything has been working just fine. I've had to turn the knob many times and I've always loved the results. But now I've developed two annoying problems: First, I have these terrible bags under my eyes and the knob won't get rid of them." The doctor looked at her closely and said, "Those aren't bags, those are your breasts." She said, "Well, I guess there's no point in asking about the goatee."

___________________________________________________ Classic: Thanks to Sandie for this story: Southern Grandmother on the Witness Stand: Lawyers should never ask a Southern grandma a question if they aren't prepared for the answer. In a trial, a southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know me?" She responded, "Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a young boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you" The lawyer was stunned! Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?" She again replied, "Why, yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife With three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him". The defense attorney almost died. The judge promptly asked both lawyers to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said, "If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair" ___________________________________________________

Tyler Anthony Espinosa, 18, faces two charges of felony robbery after he brandished a box cutter at employees of both the Golden Corral and Barnes and Noble and demanded money. The first robbery was reported at about 3:10 p.m., according to a press release from Billings Police Department Sgt. Scott Conrad. Espinosa entered the Golden Corral, showed the box cutter and demanded money, according to police. After the employee gave him money, Espinosa left and went to the Barnes and Noble across the parking lot. At about 3:13 p.m., police received a report that a man had entered the Barnes and Noble, displayed a box cutter and demanded money. A cashier gave him all the money in the till. Police, already responding to the reported robbery at Golden Corral, arrested Espinosa in the area of 24th Street West and Monad Road shortly after he left Barnes and Noble, according to the press release. The press release credits BPD Officer Tina Hoeger with Espinosa's arrest. Hoeger was in her patrol car when she saw Espinosa fleeing after the second robbery. The box cutter blade was extended during the robberies, Conrad said. Espinosa was arrested without incident, according to the release. Tech Support Pits From: Bonnie Re: Desktop Background
Dear Webby I have a question that you may be able to help with (or not). I find tons of photos all over the internet that I love to use for our desktop background, changing it often. Most of the time they work; other times, they come out in repeat squares of the photo all over the screen rather than one very nice photo. I’ve attached 2 of those that do this; would you open them, then try to choose as background and see what happens. If you get repeats all over too, is there any chance you can tell me why? I know that with my luck, they’ll work fine for you! If that’s the case, then I give up and will just hang on to the ones I find that work and say c’est la vie. I look forward to hearing from you whenever you have time to play around. Thanks a bunch and also many thanks always for my DearWebby letter; I love them! Bonnie Dear Bonnie Those pictures are too small to look nice when stretched to the entire desktop. For best results, resize pictures to whatever you have set for your screen resolution. If you have your resolution set to 1600 x 1200, then a 400 x 300 picture would have to be stretched 4 times, and probably would look very coarse and VERY ugly. Sometimes you can shuffle the size up in increments. Double the size, do an edge-preserving-smoothing, sharpen a bit, then increase the size again, and so on. It doesn't work with all pictures, but some may be worth trying. Usually, it is best to just use large pictures. On the better sites, you can click through the pictures to get a larger version.

"Vell, now that you've asked," replies Sven, "it's my Lena's birthday tomorrow and I asked her this morning vat she vanted for her birthday she said, 'Oh, I don't know, dear, yust give me something with a lot of diamonds in it.'" "So vat did you get her?" Ole asks. Sven replied, smiling, "I bought her a deck of cards." -------------- Keep in mind that the smart Swedes emigrated to Minnasohta and Mexifornia.

I'd like to replace him." "That so nice of you!", said the old woman, deeply touched. "How good are you at catching mice?"

A husband said to his wife, "No, I don't hate your relatives. In fact, I like your mother-in-law better than I like mine." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Easy Egg Salad for Sandwiches By Verity Pink [45 Posts, 19 Comments] Next time you are cooking scrambled eggs, cook a double quantity and leave half to cool. These can then be mashed with your preferred mayonnaise and freshly ground black pepper to taste. It saves all the palaver of shelling boiled eggs, and is easier to mix into the bargain. I normally scramble my eggs with salted butter - if you prefer to use only skimmed milk, you may wish to add salt. If I am not planning to use the sandwich filling immediately, I will usually store in the fridge for up to three days, covered with cling film. Tip provided by ____________________________________________________ From another reader who wants to NOT have her name mentioned: Hi Webby How are you and yours? I loved the 'story' about the "George and Dragon", still laughing because I know which "George and Dragon" pub that is in England it's in West Wycombe Buckinghamshire, and yes George probably would have been the 'best bet' I'm sending the story on to some friends who 'frepuent' that particular pub, they'll laugh too.

___________________________________________________ Thanks to Cookie for this story: My two brothers arrived at boot camp together. On the first morning, their unit was dragged out of bed by a drill sergeant and made to assemble outside. "My name's Sergeant Jackson," he snarled. "Is there anyone here who thinks he can whip me?" My six-foot-three, 280-pound, brother raised his hand and said, "Yes sir, I do." The Sergeant replied with a snarl, "I had my eye on you and I was hoping you would say that." The sergeant grabbed him by the arm and led him out in front of the entire group. "Men," he said, "this is my new assistant. Now is there anyone here who thinks he can whip both of us?" ___________________________________________________

Flabbergasted, the man asked what the condition was. The young woman replied, "You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words."

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Darlene for this story: Some time back, my cousin, Steve moved to a new apartment. Steve had a business commitment out of town that weekend and so I and my three brothers all chipped in to help his wife move the furniture. The new apartment was on the third floor. We hauled everything up the three flights of stairs and around the tight corner through the kitchen put them where they belonged. Finally, we came to the large couch. After hauling it up three flights to the top of the stairs, we discovered it would not go around the corner through the kitchen. We took it back out into the hall and turned it and tried again. It still wouldn't fit. Finally all of us boosted the couch from the back of the truck up the side of the building. From the third floor, we passed the couch up and over the railing of the tiny balcony and in through the sliding doors into the living room. We all col- lapsed on the couch to catch our breath and made a pact that we would not tell Steve how we got the couch into the apart- ment. "The next time he moves," we conspired, "he will have to figure out how to get the couch out of there on his own. It will be our little secret. He will have to take a saw to it!" As luck would have it, Steve found a place he liked better about three months later. It really was a busy weekend at work, and none of us were available to help move. We waited eagerly to hear from Steve but there was nothing. Finally, after several days of waiting, I asked Steve, "So, did you get everything moved OK?" "Sure," he replied. "Did you run into any problems?" "No." "Now, wait a minute, we had to drag the couch up the outside of the building and haul it over the railing! How did you get it out of the living room? It didn't fit through the kitchen!" Steve looked at me with total disbelief and said, "Geez, you idiots! The legs unscrew!" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by January Irene Neatherlin, 32, Bend, Oregon Oregon Daycare owner drugged kids The operator of the Little Giggles day care center in Bend, Ore., had a rule: Parents couldn't drop off or collect their children between 11am and 2pm. That was the period January Neatherlin referred to as "nap time"—and when she headed out to go tanning and to CrossFit. The 32-year-old was on Friday sentenced to just north of 21 years in prison after pleading guilty to 11 counts of first- degree criminal mistreatment and one count of third-degree assault. Per court documents, Neatherlin would give the children in her care the sleep aid melatonin and then take off. Her misdeeds didn't end there: the daycare was an illegal one, and she was not a registered nurse, though she told parents otherwise. The Oregonian reports the scheme unraveled after an ex-boyfriend and ex-roommate tipped off police, who began tracking Neatherlin a year ago. They observed her exiting the house on two occasions, leaving alone seven kids, ages 6 months to 4 years, reports the Bend Bulletin. Bend Police Sgt. Devin Lewis testified that "what we saw was shocking." For example, one of the kids left unattended was found covered in damp vomit, and KTVZ reports Lewis feared the child could have possibly suffocated without intervention. Using CrossFit and Tan Republic records, police verified Neatherlin visited those establishments during "nap time" hours. Four of the charges relate to prior incidents, in which Neatherlin was said to have burned a baby with scalding milk; on another occasion, an 11-month-old was taken to a hospital with head injuries. Said the sentencing judge: "It is sheer serendipity and chance that some of those kids were not killed." Tech Support Pits From: Adrian Re: Image Stabilizer
Dear Webby You recommended the Canon Powershot IS and mentioned that it had an image stabilizer to cope with that big zoom. How does that work? Is it one of those buzzing gyroscopes like some binoculars have? Adrian Dear Adrian A gyroscope would not be steady enough at the resolution of that camera. It's all done electronically. The camera just merges a few of your jitters into one picture and holds that for a second. In bright light, for closer shots, and especially for action shots, turn the image stabilizer off. Don't use the image stabilizer for shots of waterfalls! It will "freeze" the water and make it look silly. Waterfalls look much better with some blur. Have FU!N DearWebby
A Zebra dies and arrives at the Pearly Gates. As he enters, he says to St. Peter , "I have a question that's haunted me all of my days on earth. Am I a white horse with black stripes, or a black horse with white stripes?" St. Peter said, "That's a question only God can answer". So the zebra went off in search of God. When he found Him, the zebra asked, "God, please ~ I must know. Am I a white horse with black stripes or a black horse with white stripes?" God simply replied "You are what you are." The zebra returned to see St. Peter once more, who asked, "Well, did God answer your question?" The zebra looked puzzled. "No sir, God simply said 'You are what you are.'" St. Peter smiled and said to the zebra, "Well then, that answers it ~ you are a white horse with black stripes." The zebra asked, "How do you know that?" "Because," said St. Peter, "If you were a black horse with white stripes, God would have said, "Yo is what yo is."

Well, the mother did not really want to get into a deep discussion about innocence and virginity, especially since this was the fourth wedding of the bride, so she fibbed: "Because white is the color of happiness, and today is one of the happiest days of her life."

Few remember that Einstein married his cousin, Elsa Lowenthal, after his first marriage dissolved in 1919. He stated that he was attracted to Elsa because she was well endowed. He postulated that, if you are attracted to women with a large chest, the attraction is stronger if there is a DNA connection.

_____________________________________________________ One Saturday morning Murphy gets up early, dresses quietly, gets his lunch made, puts on his long johns, grabs the gun and goes to the garage to warm up his truck and head down to his favorite hunting area. Murphy backs his truck out of the garage and discovers the rain is really pouring down, It is like a torrential downpour. There is also some snow mixed in with the rain, and the wind is blowing 50 MPH. He comes back into the house and turns the TV to the weather channel. He finds it's going to be bad weather all day long, so minutes later, he puts his truck in the garage, quietly undresses and slips back into bed. There he cuddles up to his wife's back, now with a different anticipation, he whispers, "The weather out there is really terrible." To which she sleepily replies, "Can you believe my stupid ass husband is out hunting in that shit?" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Adam B. Smith,31, Donnis Smith,29 Chalmers, Indiana Indiana parents OD'd in the middle of the road, with 3 kids in the car Indiana police arrested two parents Friday night after they allegedly overdosed on heroin with their three young children in their SUV, according to WXIN. A passing motorist called police to report the 2003 Mercury Mountaineer SUV sitting in the middle of a Carroll County. The caller told the dispatch officer the two adults inside the vehicle weren't responding. “They will do almost anything to get that fix whether or not they place another person or a child in danger,” said Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby. Emergency crews arrived and administered Narcan after determining the two had likely overdosed on heroin. They transported the couple to a local hospital, where they were treated. They were later turned back over to law enforcement to be jailed. Authorities identified the parents as 31-year-old Adam B. Smith and his wife, 29-year-old Donnis Smith, both of Chalmers. Officers booked them into the Carroll County Jail on preliminary charges of felony neglect of a dependent child. They’re both being held on $5,000 bond and additional criminal charges are pending. Their children, ages 4, 6, and 11, were turned over to Department of Child Services case managers. Sheriff Leazenby says he has seen this cycle of abuse in his county repeatedly, and his department makes at least a dozen drug arrests each month. The spike in drug cases has led to overcrowding at his jail. “We have been above capacity for some time,” said Sheriff Leazenby. Based on statements made during the arrest of the couple, investigators searched a Carroll County home. There, they arrested 43-year-old Sara Huff on drug charges including dealing meth and cocaine. Investigators say more charges could be filed during this ongoing investigation. Tech Support Pits From: Nania Re: New Logitech Mouse
Dear Webby I got a Logitech M510 7 button mouse on your advice about 7 years ago. It has been a good mouse and outlasted a few lovers. Unfortunately, it got unpredictable. So I went and bought an identical one. Everything the same, except the price. Re-using the same old wireless USB button did not work. They are not THAT advanced! OK, so I got my handy dandy dental pliers and extracted the silly USB plug, and inserted the new one. The new mouse was configured for kindergarten. The Copy and Paste buttons on the side were now Forward and Back, for the widdle kiddies to bwowse their Disney stff. I spent an hour, almost, searching where to set the buttons to the way I am used to using them. Apparently that is too high for Windoze. How do I get my settings back? Thanks Nania Dear Nania Yes, you are right. That is too high for windoze. It would have been easy enough to save the config somewhere, but microsoft is punishing you for not buying a microsoft mouse. Use search everything to find setpoint or options_680.372 that is the program for setting the 7 buttons. (Copy, paste, left- click, right-click, scroll left, scroll right, enter) for enter on pushing down the wheel you have to select more and type in enter. Don't ask me why. After that your mouse will behave like your last one. Luckily windoze remembered the speed and double-click duration. You don't have to reset that. Have FU!N DearWebby
Maureen O'Murrah had taken a Manhattan taxi home from work, since both of the ladies she usually carpooled with had taken sick. In the confusion of the short-handed office staff, and hurrying downstairs to meet the cab, she had left her purse behind. As the cab pulled up to her apartment building, she was looking about the seat for her purse when the driver told her the price of her ride. In great embarrassment, she said, "Och. I'm not believin' I did this, Sir, but me purse isn't here. I must have left behind. I'm sorry, but I'm not havin' the money to pay you just now." The driver was... well, he was a Manhattan taxi driver. He said, "That's all right Missy, I'll just pull down into that dark street ahead, and get back there with you, and I'll just take your panties off." Maureen chuckled, and said "Shure, an' it's the poor end of the trade that you'll be gettin'. These panties only cost eighty-nine cents."

This kid comes home all wet, one shoe off and one shoe on, dripping water all over the house. "Momma, momma, I fell in the drainage canal !!!" "Omigosh! How did you get out?" "This man was walking nearby, heard me yelling, and jumped in to save me." Maureen rushes out the door, runs to the canal, and finds a gentleman trying to dry himself off with old newspapers. "Are you the man who pulled my little boy out of the canal?" "Yes, ma'am, but it was really nothing." "Nothing?" she screamed, "what did you do with his other shoe?!?!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from St. Patrick's Day Sherbet Float By lalala...

Finally catching the eye of an overworked waiter, he said, "You know, it's been over five years since I first came in here." "I'm sorry, but you'll have to wait your turn, sir," replied the waiter with typical New York charm. "I can only serve one table at a time."

He knocked. The Innkeeper's wife stuck her head out a window. "Could ye spare some victuals?" he asked. The woman glanced at his shabby clothes and obviously poor condition. "No!" she said rather sternly. "Could I have a pint of ale?" "No!" she said again. "Could I at least sleep in your stable?" "No!" by this time she was fairly shouting. The vagabond said, "Might I please...?" "What now?" the woman interrupted impatiently. "D'ye suppose," he asked, "I might have a word with George?" ___________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Although golf was originally restricted to wealthy, overweight Protestants, today it's open to anybody who owns hideous clothing. [info][add][mail][note]Dave Barry (1947 - ) You can only be young once. But you can always be immature. --- Dave Barry _____________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Thanks to David for this story: "Late again," the third-grade teacher said to little Sammy. "It ain't my fault, Miss Crabtree. "You can blame this on my dad. The reason I'm three hours late? Dad sleeps nights in the raw!" Now Miss Crabtree had taught grammar school for thirty-some odd years. So she asked little Sammy what he meant by that, despite her mounting fears. Full of grins and mischief, and in the flower of his youth, little Sammy and trouble were old friends, but he always told the truth. "You see, Miss Crabtree, at the ranch we got this here lowdown coyote. The last Few nights he done et six hens and killed Ma's best milk goat. And last night, when Dad heard a noise out in the chicken pen, he grabbed his gun and said to Ma, 'That coyote's back again, I'm a gonna git him!'" "'Stay back, he yelled to all us kids, I wouldn't want ya hurt!' He was naked as a jaybird, no boots, no pants, no shirt! To the hen house he crawled, just like an Injun on the snoop. Then he stuck that double barrel through the window of the coop. As he stared into the darkness, with coyotes on his mind, our old hound dog Zeke had done woke up and come asneakin' up behind Dad. Then we all looked on plumb helpless as Dad was cold-nosed without warnin'." "Miss Crabtree, we been cleanin' chickens since three o'clock this mornin'!" ______________________________________________________ At the candy store Judi had about 20 bags of candy. A smart-alek behind her in line told her: "You should push the air out of them. The candies might cost less if they don't have the weight of the air in them." So for a few minutes she let the air out of the bags. After she did that he told her it didn't really matter. It would have weighed the same. Judi was more confused than ever and said, "If having air in the bag doesn't weigh any more, then why does it make the bags look so fat?" I offered to squeeze her for a while, but she threw a bag at me. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Barnegat, NJ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Barry for this story: A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby's first exam. The doctor arrived, and examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed? "Breast-fed,"she replied. "Well, strip down to your waist," the doct or ordered. She did. He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a very professional and detailed examination. Motioning to her to get dressed The doctor said, "No wonder this baby is underweight. You don't have any milk." "I know," she said, "I'm his Grandma, but I'm glad I came." _____________________________________________________ Reported by the Bauselll Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Heather Jo Campbell, 46 Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Police arrest burglar who crawled through attic space into neighbor’s apartment A bizarre burglary case in Oklahoma ended with an arrest Monday night after the suspect was found in her neighbor’s closet, according to KFOR. “The female who was inside one of the apartments went up into the attic, went to the other one and dropped down into the closet of the neighbor’s residence and began trying to steal clothing out of there,” said Master Sergeant, Gary Knight, with the Oklahoma City Police Department. Police arrested Heather Jo Campbell, 46, and discovered she had an active arrest warrant for another burglary from New Year’s Day. Kelcie Proctor says her dad woke up early that morning to find a woman lying on the floor beside his bed. “My dad assumed it was my brother’s date. And so was like, 'What are you doing upstairs with me? Go downstairs with Kase,'” said Proctor. Her dad and the woman walked downstairs. He even gave her a cup of coffee before she walked out the front door. “And my dad basically goes, 'Hey, your date’s leaving and Kase goes, 'What date, dad?' And at that point, they realized oh, this woman’s not supposed to be in our house!” said Proctor. That’s when the family noticed several of their reusable shopping bags loaded down with stuff the woman had evidently intended to steal. “Fried chicken, spices, toilet paper, bleach, what else. She had my used toothpaste, my shower caddy, my brother’s old hoodies,” said Proctor. Police were able to identify the suspect because she left her cell phone behind at the Proctor home. An arrest warrant was issued at that time but police had not been able to find her until the burglary at the apartments on Monday. Proctor is glad she is finally in custody. “It’s crazy that this woman has the audacity to just walk into people's houses while they’re sleeping. It’s scary. My story is funny, but it’s terrifying,” said Proctor. Proctor said Campbell did get away with her brother’s laptop and some expensive headphones. Police say Campbell has multiple prior felony convictions, many of them for burglary. Tech Support Pits From: Linda Re: What to do about a scam?
Dear Webby My friend shared your today's message with me. Delightful. She also suggested you might be able to answer a question for me. This morning I received a spam message from "someone" purporting to be "An American Soldier" but really it was spam (i.e. discovered some money in Iraq and needed help, etc.). It made me angry. Is there anyone I can send this spam message to and they can stop it?? Thank you. Linda Dear Linda That's just a 419 scam, also called "Nigerian scam" or "Advance Fee scam", and it has been going around since the first Iraq war. Unless you are willing to travel to Nigeria and take the law into your own hands, about all you can do is send it to the US Secret Service. US Secret Service Financial Crimes Division 950 H Street N.W. Suite 5300 Washington, DC 20223 Phone: (202) 406-5850 Fax: (202) 406-5031 The Secret Service is not really doing anything about it, even though this scam costs Americans over 170 Million Dollars a year, but apparently they draw up neat charts showing how many more people fall for that same old scam each year. By the way, do NOT go to Nigeria to meet some good looking US General. He is dead. Somebody already fixed his wagon. However, the crooks still use his picture. Have FUN! DearWebby
The Wrong Side of the Bed Mother Superior was on her way to late morning prayers, when she passed two novices just leaving early morning prayers, on their way to classes. As she passed the young ladies, Mother Superior said, "Good morning, ladies." The novices replied, "Good morning, Mother Superior, may God be with you." But after they had passed, Mother Superior heard one say to the other, "I think she got out of the wrong side of the bed this morning." This startled Mother Superior, but she chose not to pursue the issue. A little further down the hall, Mother Superior passed two of the Sisters who had been teaching at the convent for several years. She greeted them with, "Good morning, Sister Martha, Sister Jessica, may God give you wisdom for our students today." "Good morning, Mother Superior. Thank you, and may God be with you." But again, after passing, Mother Superior overheard, "She got out of the wrong side of bed today." Baffled, she started to wonder if she had spoken harshly, or with an irritated look on her face. She vowed to be more pleasant. Looking down the hall, Mother Superior saw retired Sister Mary approaching, step by step, with her walker. As Sister Mary was rather deaf, Mother Superior had plenty of time to arrange a pleasant smile on her face, before greeting Sister Mary. "Good morning, Sister Mary. I'm so happy to see you up and about. I pray God watches over you today, and grants you a wonderful day." "Ah, Good morning, Mother Superior, and thank you. I see you got up on the wrong side of bed this morning." Mother Superior was floored! "Sister Mary, what have I done wrong? I have tried to be pleasant, but three times already today, people have said that about me." Sister Mary stopped her walker, and looked Mother Superior in the face. "Oh, don't take it personally, Mother Superior. It's just that you're wearing Father Murphy's slippers.

Thanks to Sandie for this: If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq operations during the last 22 months, and a total of 2,112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 10,000 soldiers. The firearm death rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 10,000 for the same period. That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot and killed in the U.S. Capitol, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, than you are in Iraq. Conclusion: If these statistics are true, the U.S. should pull out of Washington immediately. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Use Your Answering Machine for New Baby Info With a new baby, you can spend a lot of time fielding calls from family members when you would rather just be relaxing. One thing you can do is leave a message on your answering machine giving the baby's name, weight, gender, and it's date and time of birth. Ask people to leave a message so you can call them back at a later date. That way you can rest and they can get the information they want about your new arrival.

Suddenly the train rushed into broad daylight again, and a small voice lifted in wonder. "Wow! It's tomorrow!" exclaimed the small boy. ___________________________________________________

She carefully steps out of the car and opens the trunk. Takes out two cardboard men, unfolds them and stands them at the rear of the vehicle facing oncoming traffic. The lifelike cardboard men are in trench coats exposing their nude bodies to approaching drivers... Not surprisingly, the traffic became snarled and backed up. It wasn't very long before a police car arrives. The Officer, clearly enraged, approaches her yelling, "What is going on here?" "My car broke down, Officer" says the woman, calmly. "Well, what the heck are these obscene cardboard pictures doing here by the road?!" asks the Officer... "Oh, those are my emergency flashers!" she replied. _____________ * Only certified blondes are allowed to tell blonde jokes in the Humor Letter ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Martin for bringing back this classic: I have a Labrador Retriever & I was buying a large bag of Purina at Wal-Mart and was in line to check out. A woman behind me asked if I had a dog (?) On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting The Purina Diet again, although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital last time but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms. I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry & that the food is nutritionally complete, so I was going to try it again. I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a tall guy who was behind her. Horrified, she asked if I'd been poisoned. I told her no; I'd been sitting in the street licking my butt and a car hit me. I thought the tall guy was going to need help as he roared with laughter staggering to the door and fresh air. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Banaue rice terraces, Ifugao, Philippines _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Glenis for this story: Although he had packed his bag for a business trip the night before, my husband planned to come home from the office before leaving. That afternoon he called to say the meeting had been canceled and on the spur of the moment we decided to spend a romantic, child-free night in a hotel. I quickly repacked his suitcase, replacing his belongings with two wine glasses, candlesticks and candles and some bubble bath. Then I dashed out to buy a bottle of wine. When I returned, the bag was gone. A note on the kitchen table read: "Sorry, hon, the conference is on after all. I'll call you when I get there." _____________________________________________________ Reported by the Bauselll Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Galit Levi 37, Hollis Hills, New York Welfare queen busted for fraud after showing off her wealth on FaceBook A welfare queen who collected nearly $100,000 from Medicaid was actually worth more than a million dollars, and flaunted her wealth on Facebook. Now, she's facing jail time. Galit Levi lives a pretty comfortable life if you follow her Facebook. She reportedly has deposited over a million dollars into her bank account with her husband over the past few years. During that time, however, she was also collecting tens of thousands of dollars in Medicaid benefits, claiming tp be out of work while her husband earned less than $2000 a month. Levi is now facing fraud charges, and is accused of forging her Medicaid application. Her Facebook page showed she lived pretty well, with lots of pictures of her and her family having a good time. They also reportedly bought a nice house, only to tear it down so they could build a bigger, more luxourious one. A Queens mom with $1 million in the bank fleeced Medicaid of nearly $70,000 over three years, officials announced Thursday. Galit Levi, 37, of Hollis Hills, was charged with grand larceny, welfare fraud, and falsifying business records, according to the Queens District Attorney's office. To get approved for Medicaid benefits, Levi claimed she was unemployed and that her husband earned approximately $1,750 a month not enough to support the two adults and their four kids. Officials approved Levi and her family for public assistance in January 2012 after she filed what turned out to be a bogus claim, authorities said. She then proceeded to bilk the system of $67,000 through December 2015, submitting several renewals for Medicaid assistance, the criminal complaint said. But in fact, a review of Levi's bank accounts with her husband uncovered deposits from 2012 through 2016 that exceeded $1.3 million, authorities said. Levi faces some serious charges. Just the charge of grand larceny could land her in prison for 15 years. Although she was able to make bail of $5,000, she had to turn over her passport, so she cannot flee back to Israel. Medicaid is intended to help the truly needy, but this defendant's bank records allegedly show her family's income was well above the levels that would have made her and her children eligible for assistance, said Queens District Attorney Richard Brown. Tech Support Pits From: Belinda Re: Transferring files Dear Webby This is about a column a while ago. I was on vacation. There IS a bimbo proof alternative that you did not mention: Thumb Drives! They work even for blondes like me! They are like a USB drive without a cable, and plug directly into any USB port. Just plug it in, and the computer sees a new drive. Drag stuff onto it, unpug it, walk it over to the other computer, plug it in, and drag stuff off it. Sneaker-Net works! Belinda Dear Belinda You are 100% right. And the price of them has come down quite nicely. Some stores even give them away whenver they have some sale on. But even if you have to pay $1 or $2 for a 10 GB Thumb Drive with their logo printed on, it is still a good deal. Have FUN! DearWebby

My mother and I were walking down the street when a man stopped us. "I'm taking a survey," he said. "Do you think there is too much sex in movies?" "I'm not sure," replied my mother. "Since Bob, my husband, stopped coming to the movies, I get too wrapped up in the film to notice what the rest of the audience is doing." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Cookware for a Glass Top Stove The same as any other stove. Cast iron, Revereware, teflon , it doesn't matter. They all work just fine on a glass-top stove. By Dusty Tip provided by ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Chuck for this story: One afternoon when my daughter was in kindergarten, I picked her up after school. She bobbed out to the car and crawled into the back seat. "What did you do today?" I asked. She couldn't wait to tell me. "We learned that boys are different from girls," she chirped. Looking into the rearview mirror, I could just see the top of her head. "My teacher told us that boys have a thing the girls don't," she added "Well, yes they do..." I said cautiously. I couldn't think of anything else to say, so we were quiet for a moment. Then she piped up again. "That's how girls know that boys are boys," she said. "They see that thing that hangs down and they know that he is a boy." I mentally calculated the distance home. Our five-minute commute already felt like an hour. "Did you know that when the boys see a girl they puff up?" My palms were beginning to sweat. "Um...well..." I was still searching for something new to say, to change the subject, when she asked, "Why do the girls like the boys to have those things?" Well, I didn't know what to say. I mean, what woman hasn't asked herself that question at least once? "Oh," I stammered. She didn't wait for my answer. She had her own. "It's cause it moves when they walk and then the girls see that and that's when they know they are boys and that's when they like them. Then the boy sees the girl and he puffs up, and then the girl knows he likes her, too. And then they get married. And then they get cooked." That last part confused me a bit, but on the whole I thought she had a pretty good grasp on things. As soon as we got home and I pulled into the garage, she hopped out of the car, fishing something out of her school bag. "I drew a picture," she said. "Do you want to see?" I wasn't sure I did, but I looked at it anyway. I had to sit down. There, all puffed up so to speak, looking mighty attractive for the ladies, was a crayon drawing of a great big Tom Turkey. His snood, the thing that hangs down over his beak, the thing that female turkeys find so irresistible, was magnificent. His tail feathers were standing tall and proud. She was a little offended that I laughed so hard at her drawing, and I laughed until I cried. But when I told her I loved it - and I did she got over her pique. That was the end of that, for her anyway. But I'm not so lucky. Every year I remember that conversation. And to be honest, I haven't looked at a turkey, or a man, the same way since.

___________________________________________________ Thanks to Kati for this story: This is a story about a couple who had been happily married for years. The only friction in their marriage was the husband's habit of farting loudly every morning when he awoke. The noise would wake his wife and the smell would make her eyes water and make her gasp for air. Every morning she would plead with him to stop ripping them off because it was making her sick. He told her he couldn't stop it and that it was perfectly natural. She told him to see a doctor; she was concerned that one day he would blow his guts out. The years went by and he continued to rip them out! Then one Thanksgiving morning as she was preparing the turkey for dinner and he was upstairs sound asleep, she looked at the bowl where she had put the turkey innards and neck, gizzard, liver and all the spare parts and a malicious thought came to her. She took the bowl and went upstairs where her husband was sound asleep and, gently pulling back the bed covers, she pulled back the elastic waistband of his underpants and emptied the bowl of turkey guts into his shorts. Some time later she heard her husband waken with his usual trumpeting which was followed by a blood curdling scream and the sound of frantic footsteps as he ran into the bathroom. The wife could hardly control herself as she rolled on the floor laughing, tears in her eyes! After years of torture she reckoned she had got him back pretty good. About twenty minutes later, her husband came downstairs in his blood stained underpants with a look of horror on his face. She bit her lip as she asked him what the matter was. He said, "Honey, you were right. All these years you have warned me and I didn't listen to you." "What do you mean?" asked his wife. "Well, you always told me that one day I would end up farting my guts out, and today it finally happened. But by the grace of God, some Vaseline, and the toothbrush, I think I got most of them all back in." ___________________________________________________

He ran but got caught by bicycle cops. Surveillance video shows the moment a Washington state mother fought off a man trying to steal a pickup truck with her 2-year-old inside on Wednesday, March 7. The woman was walking around the truck when a shirtless man passing by jumped to the driver's seat. The woman managed to open the door of the truck just as it started to move. She struggled with the man. He punched her. The truck drove on a sidewalk and hit a short concrete wall. The man got out and ran away. Police were called to the scene on Elizabeth Avenue in Bremerton and bicycle officers in the area started to chase the suspect, identified as 23-year-old DeShawn Jackson, Q13 Fox reported. Jackson led the officers on a several-block chase during which he attempted to steal another vehicle and hide inside a home. He was arrested and faces charges of robbery, kidnapping, burglary, felony harassment, theft of a motor vehicle, assault, and hit and run. After the arrest, Jackson told officers he smoked synthetic marijuana. There were no reports of an injury of the 2-year-old. Jackson has a lengthy criminal history, including a 2014 conviction for punching, choking, and kicking his girlfriend. What a hero! Getting beat up and drug out of a truck by a young woman, then chased and caught by bicycle cops. They will still be laughing in jail by the time he finishes serving his 10 years. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lee Re: Windows Media Player Dear Webby I have used VLC Media Player as a Window's video viewer however lately I find it becomes "pixelated"(?) frequently.

Deep in the woods of Tennessee on a country road, a speeder hit and killed a dog. The dog's owner stood nearby, a long rifle in his hand. The speeder looks at the owner sheepishly and says, "Looks as if I killed your dog." "Sure does." I'm sorry. Was it a valuable dog?" "I wouldn't say that." "Well, suppose I gave you a hundred dollars. Would that be enough?" "Well, I don't know." "Two hundred dollars. That should do it." "Sounds good." The speeder reached into his pocket and came up with the money. Pressing it into the man's hand, he said, "I'm sorry I spoiled your plans to go hunting." "I wasn't going hunting.

As she stood there, she noticed that some souls were allowed to march right through the pearly gates into heaven. Others, though, were led over to Satan, who threw them into the burning pit. But every so often, instead of hurling a poor soul into the fire, Satan would toss a soul into a small pile off to one side. After watching Satan do this several times, the woman's curiosity got the best of her. So she strolled over to find out what the devil he was doing. "Excuse me, Prince of Darkness," she said. "I'm waiting my turn for judgment, but I couldn't help wondering, why are you tossing those people aside instead of flinging them into the fires of hell with the others?" "Ah, those..." Satan said with a groan. "They're all from Vancouver or Seattle. They're too wet to burn!"

"Because it's been laying outside, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty and probably has germs" I replied. At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Wow! How do you know all this stuff?" "Uh", ... I was thinking quickly, "All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mommy." We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information. "OH...I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the test you have to be the daddy."

_____________________________________________________ Q. What's the most common cause of hearing loss amongst men? A. Wife saying she wants to talk to him. _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Linda Tracy Gillman, 70, in jail Salt Lake City, Utah Utah woman on trial for trying to hire hit man charged with same crime again A Herriman woman now convicted of trying to arrange to have her ex- husband murdered — who was previously charged with seeking a second hit man while in jail — was charged yet again Friday with trying to hire a third hit man. The stunning charges against Linda Tracy Gillman, 70, were filed on the same day a jury began deliberating her initial case. She was found guilty Friday afternoon of one count of criminal solicitation, a first-degree felony, but was acquitted of a second count. Early last year, Gillman was charged with two counts of criminal solicitation, a first-degree felony, for allegedly asking one of her employees — a man who also rents a condominium from her — "if he could arrange to have her ex-husband, Mr. D. Gillman, killed," charging documents state. She allegedly gave the man $5,000 and promised him $100,000 more once her ex-husband and his current wife were dead and she collected her ex-husband's life insurance. Gillman was married to Duane H. Gillman, a veteran bankruptcy attorney in Salt Lake City. The plan was for the acquaintance to hire a third person to carry out the murder and make it look like Duane Gillman died from a drug overdose, according to the charges. Instead, the man went to police and Gillman was arrested. Then in June, Gillman was charged with attempted obstruction of justice, a third-degree felony. Police say while she was in the Salt Lake County Jail, she approached another inmate who she thought was affiliated with a white supremacist gang. "Gillman referred to herself as 'the bank,' and said that she 'could make everything happen'" if he would take care of the man who went to the police, charging documents say. Gillman said that if "somehow (the man) ended up dead or disappearing, then I would walk out of here a free woman," investigators wrote in the charges. She also allegedly said that if the man disappeared, "it would make all her dreams come true." That case was eventually dismissed due to problems with witnesses. This week, Gillman went on trial for her criminal solicitation charges. Prosecutors recounted the allegations against Gillman on Friday morning, saying the evidence in the case, including audio recordings, clearly laid out the woman's plot. But Gillman's attorney, Colleen Coebergh, argued Gillman was the one who had been solicited by the so-called hitman, who was actually after the elderly woman's money. Jurors began deliberating the case later in the day. But in an unbelievable turn of events, the Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office announced Friday that Gillman had tried to hire a hit man once again from the jail as recently as three weeks ago. She wanted to have the prosecution's key witness in her original case murdered, as well as an attorney, according to court documents. She was charged Friday with two more counts of criminal solicitation, a first-degree felony, and two counts of obstructing justice, a second-degree felony. The new charges say Gillman asked an attorney on Feb. 13 to bring her a check while visiting her at the jail. Gillman then filled out the check and placed it in an envelope addressed to "M.K.," according to police. Jail corrections officers intercepted the letter, noting that it was against policy for mail to be delivered directly to an inmate. They opened the letter and noticed the check was made out for $155,000, the new charges state. The next day, investigators interviewed another inmate — a woman Gillman had befriended while behind bars. Gillman told the woman she would post her bail if she agreed to break into a storage unit and destroy two CDs that contained recordings of Gillman and others involved in her case, according to the charges. Gillman also wanted the woman to find the prosecution's key witness in her case — the former employee whom she was accused of originally asking to have her husband killed — and "give him a 'confess' letter that was authored by Gillman," the charges state. If he refused to sign it, the woman (inmate) was told to contact a specific person (who is not named in the court documents) and take the former employee "out," the charges state. In addition, Gillman wanted the woman to ask the same unnamed person "if he would be willing to kill" an attorney who won a civil case against her, according to Gill. "She had lined up an individual who would take the witness out. And in addition, asked to have an attorney killed in an opposing civil action against her that she had lost," the district attorney said. The inmate provided police with several documents in Gillman's handwriting aimed to "provide incentive" for the alleged hit man to carry out the plan, the charges state, "and emphasizing that her case needed to be 'shot down.'" The check was made out to a family member of the female inmate, according to the charges. Bail for Gillman's new charges is set at $2.5 million. On Friday, Gill praised the investigator who uncovered the new plot and noted that all the allegations are being taken seriously. Sentencing for Gillman is set for April 23. She faces a potential sentence of five years to life in prison, more if she tries hiring additional contract killers in the meantime. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Beverly Re: Email Stationery Dear Webby, My question today is about email. I read in your Tech Support column where you said that Incredimail is spyware because it tracks everybodys addresses. Got me to thinking about all email. Is there a systemn that does NOT do this? I think I have heard you mention Eudora, but I don't know anything about it. I have been using Incredimail because I like the stationery. Is there something you can reccommend that is not considered spyware and yet allows the use of different kinds of stationery? Keep up the good work on the Humor Letter! It makes my day! Thanks! Beverly Dear Beverly I nhave used Eudora since 1993. It always has had stationery, long before the Incredimail nuisance was released. Nowadays jsut about any email program has stationery, however, stationery has pretty well gone out of fashion. Most people just want the message or question. Even Gmail can use stationery! You can use pretty and cute stationery, or even forms to be filled out. Gmail itself does not have built in stationery, but you can set your Gmail to forward to your home address, where you use Thunderbird. Here are the details: Stationery in Gmail Have FUN! DearWebby

Morris, a professional photographer was invited to dinner at the Goldblums. He took along a few pictures to show the hostess. Millie Goldblum looked at his photos and commented, "These are very good! You must have a very good camera." He didn't make any comment, however, as he was leaving to go home he said, "That was a really delicious meal, Millie!" "Thank you!" she replied enthusiastically. Then Morris added, "Your cook must have a very good stove!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Leftover Turkey Casserole When packing up the leftovers from the birthday party, make a couple of "Turkey Casseroles". Spray the casseroles, put cooked Turkey in the bottom and top with Gravy. Next add a layer of carrots or other leftover veggies (Brussel Sprouts are not a good idea). Then a layer of dressing, and top it off with a layer of Mashed Potatoes. Push down slightly and cover with plastic wrap. I put the lid on the casserole and wrap it again to avoid having to look for it when you warm it up. Pop it in the freezer. To reheat: Thaw in the fridge all day and heat for about 1 hour at 325 degrees F. Just make sure it is HOT in the center before serving. It's like a Mini-Turkey Dinner!

As I checked in at the airport, the ticket agent asked me some standard security questions. "Has anyone given you any packages that you didn't pack yourself?" he asked. I told him that my mother-in-law had given me a parcel to take to her son. He looked at me very carefully and asked: "Does she like you?" ___________________________________________________

Earth on Oct. 26, 2028. The next day NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory
announced that there was no chance the asteroid would hit Earth.

_____________________________________________________ As a young married couple, a husband and a wife lived in a cheap housing complex near the base where he was working. Their chief complaint was that the walls were paper-thin and that they had no privacy. This was painfully obvious when one morning the husband was upstairs and the wife was downstairs on the telephone. She was interrupted by the doorbell and went to greet her neighbor. "Give this to your husband," he said thrusting a roll of toilet paper into her hands. "He's been yelling for it for 15 minutes!" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Shameka Latreena Lynch, 30, Greenville, North Carolina NC woman started shooting in a full movie house A North Carolina woman is jailed on multiple felony charges after she allegedly opened fire in a movie theater during a dispute over assigned seats at a screening of “Black Panther,” according to police and court records. Investigators allege that Shameka Latrice Lynch, 30, squabbled with other moviegoers around 11:45 PM Friday at a crowded AMC theater in Greenville. During the dispute over seating arrangements for the Marvel superhero movie, Lynch allegedly pulled out a .32 caliber pistol and discharged the weapon inside the theater. Lynch, seen above, fired one round into the theater’s ceiling, police allege. While the shooting resulted in no injuries, Lynch has been charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill (prosecutors have identified the victims as two men attending the “Black Panther” showing). Lynch is also facing a third felony count for discharging a weapon in an enclosure to incite fear. The shooting prompted police to evacuate the entire 12-screen multiplex. Lynch surrendered to police Saturday evening and was booked into the Pitt County Detention Center, where she is being held on $250,000 bond. Lynch is next due in court on March 14 _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From the Tech Support Pits: From: Richi Re: What is MailWasher Dear Webby, How does mailwasher work? is it very difficult to use? I seem to getting alot of links and spam in my email.some of the names i do notice but all that is in there is just a link to somewhere, and im afraid to click on the you think its just spam?i dont want it to clog up my system if i click on the link,what do you reccommend? tyvm o dear webby for your advice and help Richi Dear Richi Mailwasher is easy to use, easier than your email program. Since you have mastered that, you have no worries. Mailwasher looks at your mail on your ISP's server, washes the spam out of it, then you just download the left over legitimate mail. Your ISP will love it! A LOT less useless file transfers. You get to see the list, just the header and a few lines, and you "pardon" mail, that should not have been flagged as spam. It happens. For example when I bitch and complain about a certain virus, MailWasher might think it is a dangerous mail and flag it as spam. That's when you mark my newsletter as FRIEND or make filters. You can make filters really easy. You click on choices like "includes" in "body", and the offending word. Then you can add, "but does not include" and a saving grace word like "Humor". That way, even if I bitch about certain spam, it washes out all other occurrences of spam, that include the trigger word, but not the Humor Letter. Like the "But not", there are lots of other boolean operators you can use. Actually, all the "Regular Expressions" are available. That makes crafting filters an exciting game. Spammers have no chance. My Mailwasher reduces all the mails per day I get to the 100 - 200, that I actually read and answer. Especially with your Comcast address, that gets harvested quite frequently, you really do need MailWasher. You can get the full PRO for under $40 at Have FUN! DearWebby
Thanks to Cookie for this story: Two little boys in first grade were chosen to be the leads in their first school play. It was to be a Shakespearean play. The first little boy was to say, "My fair maiden.... I have come to snatch a kiss and fill your soul with hope." The second little boy was to reply by saying, "Hark!, a pistol shot." Well, on opening night in the school auditorium, the two little boys were a bit nervous, knowing that all the seats were going to be filled with grown-ups. The teacher told them to take their places on the stage and to remember to speak very loud as soon as the curtain goes up. The curtain rose and looking out upon the audience the two boys were terrified. They stood there frozen. So the teacher whispered for them to begin. The first boy yelled out these unforgettable words: "My fair maiden.... I have come to kiss your snatch! And fill your hole with soap." The second boy screams out....."Hark! a shistol pot, a postle shiss, a pot of shit, this is bull shit... I never wanted to be in this lousy play anyway! The audience was howling.

Becky and Sally Ann were doing some carpenter work on a house. Becky who was nailing down siding would reach into her nail pouch, pull out a nail and either toss it over her shoulder or nail it in. Sally Ann, figuring this was worth looking into, asked, "Why are you throwing those nails away?" Becky explained, "When I pull a nail out of my pouch, about half of them have the head on the wrong end and I throw them away." Sally Ann got completely upset and yelled, "You moron! Those nails aren't defective! They're for the other side of the house!."

You can prep this the day before and refrigerate, it is so much easier than stuffing it into the turkey, the turkey will cook faster, food poisoning risk is decreased and the stuffing doesn't absorb all the extra fat dripping from the turkey.

She turned to little Johnny and asked what he did over the break. "We visited my grandmother in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania," he replied.

______________________________________________________ I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers. --- Mahatma Gandhi (1869 - 1948) If you think your boss is stupid, remember; you wouldn't have a job if he was any smarter. --- Albert Grant _____________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ An 80 year old couple was worried because they kept forgetting things all the time. The doctor assured them there was nothing seriously wrong except old age, and suggested they simply carry a pocket notebook and write things down so as not to forget. Several days later, the old man got up to go to the kitchen. His wife said, "Dear, get me a bowl of ice cream while you're up." He says, "OK." She says, "...and put some chocolate syrup on it. You'd better write that down." He says, "I won't forget." She says, "and put a few cherries on it, too. You'd better write all this down." He says, "I won't forget." He comes back in twenty minutes and hands her a plate of scrambled eggs and bacon. She says, "Darn it!, I told you to write it down. I knew you'd forget." He says, "What did I forget?" She says, "My toast!" ______________________________________________________ >From Connie Words Women Use (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 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 (normal eyebrows) This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care". You will get a raised 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 that a woman can say to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you retributions for what ever 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 careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh", as she will only tell you "Nothing". _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Bat Flower _____________________________________________________

An officer at the Shelby County Division of Corrections observed visitor Sarah Griffin give a bag of Doritos to grandson, inmate Cody Clements, according to a report. The officer immediately asked Clements to hand over the bag, and Clements allegedly grabbed a small object out of the bag before giving it to the officer. The officer then examined the object, and it appeared to be drugs wrapped in black electrical tape, according to WREG. Officers unrolled the tape from the object and found several individually wrapped bags of a green leafy substance, yellow pills, and white powder. After further investigation, the bags tested positive for 28.5 grams of methamphetamine, 11.4 grams of marijuana, 40 bars of prescription Xanax pills, 1.7 grams of Ecstasy and 1.1 grams of Heroin. Griffin told officers she thought she was bringing in a cell phone and did not know it was drugs.

Thanks to Chris for binging back this classic: ITALIAN BOY'S CONFESSION "Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose woman." The priest asks, "Is that you, little Johnny Parisi?" "Yes, Father, it is." "And who was the woman you were with?" "I can't tell you, Father, I don't want to ruin her reputation." "Well, Johnny, I'm sure to find out her name sooner or later, so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?" "I cannot say." "Was it Teresa Volpe?" "I'll never tell." "Was it Nina Capelli?" "I'm sorry, but I cannot name her." "Was it Cathy Piriano?" "My lips are sealed." "Was it Rosa Di Angelo, then?" "Please, Father, I cannot tell you." The priest sighs in frustration. "You're very tight lipped, Johnny Parisi, and I admire that. But you've sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself." Johnny walks back to his pew, and his friend Nino slides over and whispers, "What'd you get?" "Four months vacation and five good leads."

If given minimum care at planting time they will grow, bloom, and increase in number with virtually no further attention from you. Because their flowers bloom in early spring you don't need to water the plants during the summer. Daffodils seldom need dividing, and perhaps best off all, they are completely unappetizing to the same rodents that find your tulip bulbs irresistible.

Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, March 8
Thank you Claude!

Trump sure has the Commies all confused with the tariffs!
Normally Democrats demand tariffs to protect union members, 
but during Obama's days, bribes from Socialist countries counted for
more. Apparently foreign unions are closer to Stalin, Putin and Soros.

Now, with Trump announcing that he is going to level the playing
field, the Democrats fear that they are going to loose their big
They don't give a hoot about American Steelworkers and Aluminum
smelter workers. 

What are the steel and smelter workers saying about the Democrats
whining about tariffs leveling the field? 
"That's a bunch of Pelosi! We can make our own rails and our own beer
cans. No need for subsidized imports stealing our jobs!"

I agree with the steel and smelter workers 100%.
I used to be one of them!

Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ About a year ago a friend, who lives in Virginia, was talking with her four year old son, Brent. He was asking her why all their relatives from Wisconsin talk funny and sound like their noses are plugged up. "They think we have an accent," she replied. "But they have an accent, right?", Brent asked. "They talk funny?" "Everybody talks in different ways" she tried to explain. "To them, we sound like we talk very slow and all our words are d-r-a-w-n out." His eyes got big, and he whispered seriously, "Oh, no. You mean they hear funny too?" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Justin Bunn, 39, Taylor Bunn, 19 Panama City, Floriduh Father and 19-year-old daughter caught having sex in somebody else's back garden A Florida man and his 19-year-old daughter have been charged with incest after they were seen having sex in the backyard of a Panama City residence, according to court records. Justin Bunn, 39, and his daughter Taylor reportedly admitted to the consensual February 18 encounter, police say. A Panama City Police report charges that a witness spotted the Bunns “having sexual intercourse in a missionary position in the backyard” of a home about three miles from a residence the Bunns (seen above) share. Following his arrest Tuesday, Justin Bunn reportedly confessed to having sex with his daughter, but “stated it was an isolated incident.” Taylor Bunn, police report, also made “several admissions about having sexual intercourse with her father.” The Bunns have each been charged with incest, a felony. A judge yesterday set Justin Bunn’s bond at $5000, while his daughter will have to post $1000 to secure her release from the Bay County jail. The Bunns have been ordered to have no contact “in any manner” with each other. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From the Tech Support Pits: From: Monk Re: Saving videos Dear Webby, I am just now catching up with my old Webby news letters.

From Georgina: I was nervous the night my husband and I brought our kids to an upscale restaurant for the first time. My husband ordered a bottle of wine with the meal. When the waitress brought it, our children became quiet as she began the ritual uncorking. When she poured a small amount for my husband to taste, our six-year-old piped up, "Give it to Mom. Mom can drink a LOT more than that!"

A three-year-old in the congregation regularly watched football games with his father. So much so, that he knew some of the signals the referee makes.

Start by writing today's date followed by everything you need to do that day. As you finish items, cross them out with a single line, so you can still read what it said. If there is anything still on your list at the end of the day, write it at the top of the list the following day. Start your day with a list and you get more done.

It has been too long since I drove Route 66! ___________________________________________________ When you're hospitalized, it pays to be nice to your nurse, even when you're feeling miserable. A bossy businessman learned the hard way after ordering his nurses around as if they were his employees. But the head nurse stood up to him. One morning she entered his room and announced, "I have to take your temperature." After complaining for several minutes, he finally settled down, crossed his arms and opened his mouth. "No, I'm sorry, the nurse stated, "but for this reading, I can't use an oral thermometer." This started another round of complaining, but eventually he rolled over and bared his bottom. After feeling the nurse insert the thermometer, he heard her announce, "I have to get something. Now you stay just like that until I get back!" She left the door to his room open on her way out, and he cursed under his breath as he heard people walking past his door laughing. After almost an hour, the man's doctor came into the room. "What's going on here?" asked the doctor. Angrily, the man answers, "What's the matter? Haven't you ever seen someone having their temperature taken?" "Yes, sure." said the doctor. "But never with Poison Ivy." ___________________________________________________

"Bring me my biggest sword," said Solomon, "and I shall hew the young man in half. Each of you shall receive a half." "Sounds good to me," said the first lady. But the other woman said, "Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let the other woman's daughter marry him." The wise king did not hesitate a moment. "The young man must marry the first lady's daughter," he proclaimed. "But she was willing to hew him in two!" exclaimed the king's court. "Indeed," said wise King Solomon.

The girl allegedly led a victim to a pre- arranged location, a parking garage in the 100 block of East Locust Street. There, Lynch and Garrett assaulted and robbed the victim, police say, cutting him on the elbow with a knife and stealing his wallet and its contents. Garrett is currently incarcerated in Lancaster County Prison after failing to post $50,000 bail. The juvenile’s charges were referred to Lancaster County Juvenile Probation.

I think there is a problem with my registry. I cant use Adobe reader now because it wants me to use the latest version and now I cant install that. Do you know of any other PDF viewers. I seem to remember something in a distant path of my mind. .... lol Eventually Im going to do a re-instal. For now I'll limp by until I get up the nerve. Thanks Richard in Edmonton Dear Richard Just go to my toolbox at and look for the PDF readers. There is a link there to Foxit. It is smaller and faster than Adobe, and works just fine, even with ClickBook. I haven't used Adobe in years. And it's free. Especially when you are doing research and have 4-5 e-boooks open, Foxit handles that easily, without overloading your computer even while printing one with Clickbook, while reading others. I print all ebooks in paperback book size booklets, 4 pages per sheet, with ClickBook. Saves a lot of paper and ink. That's the same as a 75% discount on all ink and all paper! Also, the paperback size format, printed front and back, makes them a lot more useful than loose, full size sheets. Right now ClickBook is on special at Clickbook (40% off regular price). Highly recommended! Foxit is a READER. If you want to re ad and EDIT PDF files, for example Government forms, then I recommend Nitro. Don't ask me why the Government puts their forms in PDF format. Maybe they get kickbacks from Microsoft and Adobe? You can get the Nitro reader at GoNitro I have used Nitro for half a dozen years. You can fill out all the silly forms, and even paste a scanned signature. Then email or fax it to them. They never know that you did not waste paper and toner or ink on their form. You can also clip pictures from eBooks or any PDF files with nitro. Quite often the picture of the day is a picture I harvested with Nitro. Like Clickbook, Nitro is one of the essentials in any decent tool box. Have FUN! DearWebby

Three old men are at the doctor for a memory test. The doctor says to the first old man, "What is three times three?" "274," was his reply. The doctor says to the second man, "It's your turn. What is three times three?" "Tuesday," replies the second man. The doctor says to the third man, "Okay, your turn. What's three times three?" "Nine," says the third man. "That's great!" says the doctor. "How did you get that?" "Simple," says the third man. "I subtracted 274 from Tuesday." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thread Wall Organizer Keep spools of thread out of the way but in plain view by making this easy wall organizer. Cut a piece of plywood to the desired size and attach wall hangers on the top of it. Then cover the plywood with 1 1/2 inch headless nails (finishing nails work great). Position the nails at an angle so the thread spools don't slide off. Tip provided by I once made pegboards like that for my girlfriend, who did a lot of embroidery. For the wood I used regular "holy" panel like you see in hardware stores. The holes were an exact match for 3/16" dowels, just perfect for holding the little styrofoam spools she used for winding the yarns onto after untangling the skeins. I cut those pegboards to fit into an attache style hard briefcase and painted them with thick and smooth high gloss marine paint. Each of those panels held a "pallette" of colors, for example one was pastels, one was bright Brazilian embroidery rayon yarns, and so on. I made it so that four pallets just snugly fit into the case. With the cover closed, the yarns were protected from dust and smoke. Easy to make and might make a nice Christmas gift. Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ To die for an idea; it is unquestionably noble. But how much nobler it would be if men died for ideas that were true! -- H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956) ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ THE TODDLER DIET Americans are always on the lookout for a new diet. The trouble with most diets is that you don't get enough to eat (the starvation diet), or you don't get enough variation (the liquid diet) or you go broke (the all-meat diet). Consequently, people tend to cheat on their diets, or quit after 3 days, or go right back to stuffing their faces after it is all over. Is there nothing you can do but give up and tell your friends you have a gland problem? Well, now there's the new Toddler Miracle Diet! Over the years you may have noticed, as I have, that most two-year-olds are trim. It came to me one day over a glass of water and a carrot that perhaps their diet is the reason. After consultation with pediatricians, X-ray technicians, and distraught Moms, I was able to formulate this new diet. It is inexpensive, offering great variety and sufficient quantity. Before embarking on this diet, however, be sure to check with your doctor -- otherwise, you might have to see him afterward. Good luck! DAY ONE Breakfast: One scrambled egg, one piece of toast with grape jelly. Eat 2 bites of egg, using your fingers; dump the rest on the floor. Take 1 bite of toast, then smear the jelly over your face and clothes. Lunch: Four crayons (any color), a handful of potato chips, and a glass of milk (3 sips only, then spill the rest). Dinner: A dry stick, two pennies and a nickel, 4 sips of flat Pepsi. Bedtime snack: Toast a piece of bread and toss it on the kitchen floor. DAY TWO Breakfast: Pick up stale toast from kitchen floor and eat it. Drink half bottle of vanilla extract or one vial of vegetable dye. Lunch: Half a tube of "Pulsating Pink" lipstick and a handful of Purina Dog Chow (any flavor). One ice cube, if desired. Afternoon Snack: Lick an all-day sucker until sticky, take outside, drop in dirt. Retrieve and continue slurping until it is clean again. Then bring inside and drop on the rug. Dinner: A rock or an uncooked bean, which should be thrust up your left nostril. Pour grape Kool-Aid over mashed potatoes; eat with a spoon. DAY THREE Breakfast: Two pancakes with plenty of syrup, eat one with fingers, rub in hair. Glass of milk; drink half, stuff other pancake in glass. After breakfast, pick up yesterday's sucker from rug, lick off fuzz, and put it on the cushion of your best chair. Lunch: Three matches, peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Spit several bites onto the floor. Pour glass of milk on table and slurp up. Dinner: Dish of ice cream, handful of potato chips, some red punch. FINAL DAY Breakfast: A quarter-tube of toothpaste (any flavor), bit of soap, an olive. Pour a glass of milk over bowl of Cornflakes, add a half cup of sugar.

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Lorna for this report: While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered that a tall, handsome boy with the same name had been in my high school class almost 50 years ago. Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was too old to have been my classmate. After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended the local high school. "Yes," he replied. "When did you graduate?" I asked. He answered, "In 1953." "Why, you were in my class!" I exclaimed. He looked at me closely and then asked, "What did you teach?" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Marcos Garcia, 42, Lawrence, Massawhosits Man held without bail in I-495 hatchet carjackings A Lawrence man who allegedly used a hatchet to carjack another car following a crash on Interstate 495 on Wednesday night is being held without bail. Marcos Garcia, 42, was arraigned on Thursday in his hospital bed at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center. He pleaded, through an interpreter, not guilty to two counts of carjacking, one count of negligent operation of a motor vehicle and one count of resisting arrest. Garcia will face a judge again next Wednesday in Ayer District Court for a dangerousness hearing, assuming he's not hospitalized. Around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, state police were dispatched to a reported motor vehicle crash on the southbound side of Interstate 495 in Chelmsford. State police said in a press release that night that Garcia had operated one of the vehicles involved, then allegedly used a hatchet to carjack another vehicle and continued along 495 until he struck two other vehicles and crashed in Littleton. Thursday's arraignment stems from the Littleton crash. Police are still investigating the Chelmsford portion of the alleged incident. Assistant District Attorney April O'Brien said Thursday that Garcia attempted to steal the two vehicles following the crash in Littleton. The driver of a black BMW told police Garcia, at the time shirtless and covered in blood, entered his car and tried to steal it, while the driver of a Toyota Sienna told police he attempted to enter her car. "He was swaying on his feet," O'Brien said during Thursday's arraignment. "Police continued to yell at him to comply. He was punching his fists. He said no. Police had to use a Taser. It took them activating the Taser five times to get the defendant under control." No mention was made at Thursday's arraignment of the hatchet Garcia allegedly used to carjack the first vehicle. The charges were read to Garcia through an interpreter. He sat upright and alert, handcuffed to his hospital bed with a bandage on the right side of his face. Judge David Frank ordered Garcia held without bail until his dangerousness hearing. Thomas Combs, Garcia's attorney, declined to comment following Thursday's arraignment. Tom O'Donnell, of Westford, who was driving on I-495 at the time of the initial tractor-trailer crash in Chelmsford, said he "saw a van screaming down the high-speed lane." According to O'Donnell, the driver of the van was the carjacker. "I spoke to the driver of the tractor trailer," O'Donnell said. "He said the van cut in front of him." This caused the tractor trailer to swerve in an attempt to avoid contact with the reckless vehicle. "The tractor-trailer driver was a real hero in my opinion by keeping control of his truck," O'Donnell said. "I'm amazed that the only person hurt was the driver of the van." _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Don C Re: Censored Dear Webby, Frequently I find jokes or other anecdotes have been cut short by a line of equal signs which prevent me from reading the rest of the story.

Lillian Adams, 33, was pulled over near the St. Augustine Outlets and booked for drug possession and smuggling contraband after a traffic stop. The arrest report said that when Adams was being processed at the St. Johns County Jail, a body scanner revealed a pipe in her private area. After Adams removed it, she went back through the body scanner, where more objects were found, the report said. Adams told the officers that she had more drugs and removed a red box containing a white substance, the report said. When she went back through the scanner, another object was found, and Adams was told she would be strip-searched. She told the deputy, "Okay, I have more drugs, I promise this time, this is everything." Adams then removed three bags from a private area, which also held a white substance, the report said. Jail records show that Adams was released on $5,500 bail. Also arrested during the traffic stop was Ryan Smith, 30. The report said that he chewed a chicken nugget with marijuana on it during the traffic stop. Smith resisted arrest and spat out the marijuana when handcuffed, the report said. Smith told the arresting deputy that he ate the marijuana during the traffic stop because he had just been released from jail and did not wish to be arrested again. Jail records show that Smith was just released from the St. Johns County Jail three weeks ago. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rick Re: Service Manuals Dear Webby, Years ago you had a link to all kinds of service manuals.

A friend, working in a gas station, was doing some minor repairs on a ladies vehicle. Before the car was removed from the rack, she asked him to rotate all the wheels so that the valve stems were all even. Without even a laugh or a chuckle, he did as she had asked, and put "Rotated tires" onto the work sheet that she had to take up to the front. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Free Car Rental If you are having a major car repair done and your car won't be available to you for days, or even weeks, ask the garage doing the repair to give you a loaner car to use while you wait. They may have loaner cars available for this purpose or they may arrange to get you a car from a rental agency. If they say no, call around to other repair shops and see if they offer this service for major repairs. It could save you hundreds of dollars if public transportation or a car pool isn't available to get to your workplace.

Viktoria Nasyrova was arraigned Tuesday on a 10-count indictment including charges of attempted murder, burglary, assault and others. The 42-year-old was arrested March 20, 2017 in Brooklyn after finally being tracked down due to her latest alleged crime. Her lawyer declined to comment on the charges. Nasayrova is also accused of fleeing to New York in 2014 after allegedly killing another woman and seducing the lead detective in her prosecution. Prosecutors say Nasyrova visited the Queens home of the fellow Russian speaking victim Olga Tsvyk in 2016 bearing a cheesecake tainted with phenazepam, a powerful Russian-made tranquilizer. The 35-year-old victim, who bares a striking resemblance to Nasayrova, ate the cheesecake, became ill and passed out, prosecutors said. She was found the next day on her bed unconscious and dressed in lingerie with pills scattered about as if she tried to kill herself. The victim later realized her passport, employment card, a gold ring and cash were missing. If convicted, Nasyrova faces up to 25 years in prison. Nasayrova is also wanted in Russia for the slaying of a Alla Alekseenko, 54, whose remains were found burned and buried two miles from her home in Krasnodar. The victim's body was spotted in the front seat of Nasyrova's car by traffic cameras, exclusively revealed when she was arrested in 2017. Investigators said she was motivated by money. The victim's daughter, Nadezda Ford, said she got a text message purporting to be from her missing mother shortly after her mother's disappearance saying: 'Sweetie, don't worry about me, I'll notify you about where I am soon enough.' But the message came after traffic camera footage appeared to show her mother dead in Nasyrova's passenger seat on the day she disappeared, October 5, 2014. Alekseenko's body was found months later, and investigators found $17,000 in cash and jewelry missing from her home. She has denied any part in the Alekseenko murder. Nasayrova was allegedly able to escape Russia by having sex with a local police officer. By November that year she had moved to New York. Once settled into her home in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, police said she enjoyed a lavish lifestyle of diamonds and furs, paid for by the men she lured into her life. She allegedly drugged and robbed each male before moving onto her next target. Nasayrova was eventually tracked down last year by a private detective Herman Weisberg, who was approached by Ford after she learned her mother's suspected killer was living near to her in Brooklyn. 'A Good Samaritan who knew the daughter of the murdered Russian woman got in touch with me and told me the story,' Weisberg told 'She offered to pay whatever cost for me to track her down and bring her to justice.' Ford 'was living in fear of this woman, had already moved once and was heartbroken over the loss of her mother,' said Weisberg. The intrepid detective discovered that Nasyrova was still regularly using Facebook under a different name, and found her secret profile. 'After poring over pictures I realized the stitching on the leather car seat in one of her selfies was unique to a high-end Chrysler. I then had my surveillance team scour Sheepshead Bay until we found the vehicle,' the gumshoe said. The team found the vehicle, a Chrysler 300, and began a stakeout. Weisberg's discovery paid off - they'd located the mysterious fugitive. NYPD Chief of Detectives Bob Boyce said: 'She's a con artist who meets people online through a dating site and then drugs them at some point, and takes their property from them and flees'. She was arrested by the NYPD Warrant Squad on an open warrant for the alleged seduction robberies after Weisberg alerted investigators to her location, since Russia doesn't have an extradition treaty with the U.S. 'She embarked on a life of crime here, and we don't have the whole story yet. We only have bits and pieces', Boyce added. 'What’s incredible is that Nasyrova wasn't living like she was on the lam – we pictured her out shopping for a 50-inch widescreen TV,' said Weisberg. 'We think she was empowered by her previous arrest for shoplifting, which didn’t pick up the fact she is wanted by Interpol for this murder.' Nasyrova was arrested in May of 2016 for stealing two furs worth $532 from a Century 21, but wasn't flagged as an international fugitive at the time. 'It would have made her feel like she had slipped the net,' said Weisberg. 'Not now.' Nasyrova now claims that people in jail started to 'threaten and harass her,' according to a notice of claim filed against the city. She apparently plans to sue. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Cookie Re: Make an alphabetical list Dear Webby, How do I make an alphabetical list of files in a folder to use in a web page menu?

This year's Halloween the University tracked Trick-or-Treaters according to their star signs and found the following: Aries pushes the others aside to get to the door first. Taurus will only eat the finest of Swiss chocolates. Gemini goes around the neighbourhood once, changes costumes and goes around again. Cancer stays at home and gives candy to the other trick-or-treaters. Leos plan their costume for months, then won't go out because someone else had the same idea. Virgo wears a neatly-pressed suit and tells everyone they're a bookkeeper. Libra is still standing in front of the closet trying to decide on a costume. Scorpio isn't in it for the candy. Sagittarius will manage to wander to the next town. Capricorn makes a list of all the houses that give good candy and the optimal route to take. Aquarius builds the costume out of spare flashlights and spends all night tinkering when it shorts. Pisces skips the whole thing to compose poetry to the Moon. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from What Can I Use on Laminate Floors That Won't Streak?

The manager shrugs, puts the envelopes back, and forgets about them. Six months later, the workers go on strike. The company closes, and is losing money fast. After a long night negotiating with the union, he remembers the 3 envelopes. So he opens the first one and it says: "Blame me, your predecessor for everything". Wonderful idea he thinks, and indeed it works and the crisis comes to its end. His job is saved, and everybody's happy. A few years later, another strike hits. He goes to the drawer and opens the second envelope. It reads, "Blame the government for everything". It works like a charm, and he breathes a sigh of relief as his job is, once again, saved.

The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again." The gentleman replied, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!" _____________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Father Luke W. Reese, 49, Indianapolis, Indiana Catholic priest accused of kidnapping, confinement and domestic battery of wife A Catholic priest in Indianapolis is being charged with kidnapping, criminal confinement, intimidation, and domestic battery after allegedly assaulting his wife on Sept. 24, 2017. According to a probable cause affidavit obtained Tuesday, Father Luke W. Reese, 49, assaulted the woman after he found out she was having an affair. In the court document, the victim claims she was in the backseat of a vehicle with the man when Reese arrived and told her to get out. In the document, the wife says Reese then drove them around the city as he hit her and blasted heavy metal music. The two then went to the Holy Rosary Catholic Church of Indianapolis, where the woman claims Reese made her kneel at the altar, said he could choke her, slammed her into a wall and hit her head against their vehicle before leaving, the affidavit says. Reese then reportedly drove his wife to Auburn to “make her tell her 90-something-year-old grandmother what she had done by talking to another man.” When the couple got home, the woman claims Reese ripped off her clothes, tore up her outfits “that he thought were slutty,” and forced her to have sex, according to court documents. Shortly after the alleged assault, the Holy Rosary Catholic Church released a statement in its bulletin announcing that Reese would take a leave of absence for a few months. “This past Monday, Father Reese notified me that he was experiencing some personal and family issues which would require a greater amount of his attention,” read the message to parishioners. Further down in the message, parishioners were asked to respect Reese and his family’s privacy. They were told that if they asked about the leave of absence, they would be told to “mind your own business.” _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Arnold Re: Open a command prompt in Explorer Dear Webby, You told us once how to get a command prompt in Explorer.

A Classic! A game warden noticed how a particular fellow named Sam consistently caught more fish than anyone else. Whereas the other guys would only catch three or four fish a day, Sam would come in from the lake with a boat full of fish. Stringer after stringer was packed with freshly caught trout. The warden, curious, asked Sam his secret. The successful fisherman invited the game warden to accompany him and observe. So the next morning, the two met at the dock and took off in Sam's boat. When they got to the middle of the lake, Sam stopped the boat, and the warden sat back to see how it was done. Sam's approach was simple: He took out a stick of dynamite, lit it, and threw it into the air. The explosion rocked the lake with such a force that dead fish immediately began to surface. Sam took out a net and started scooping them up. Well, you can imagine the reaction of the game warden. When he recovered from the shock of it all, he began yelling at Sam, "You can't do this! I'll put you in jail, buddy! You will be paying every fine there is in the book!" Sam, meanwhile, set his net down and took out another stick of dynamite. He lit it and tossed it in the lap of the game warden with these words: "Your turn!"

Way dawn in the deep saoth, in an area known as the 'Baible Belt,' there lived a Baptist minister with a very large congregation. One morning, after a particularly moving sermon, he announced, "Friends I have been hearing very nasty rumors!" The crowd fell into an expectant silence. The Minister continued, "One of you, here among us, has been reporting that I am a member of the dreaded 'Klu Klux Klan.' This, of course, is not true! I am asking that the guilty party confess and apologize now - right here - before my flock of loyal followers." Sister Margaret quickly stood up and pleaded, "Preacher, please, I don't know how this all came to be. I just mentioned to one of my close friends that you were a wizard under the sheets." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Storing Tea Always store loose tea in a container with a tight fitting lid to preserve the quality of the herbs.

The man replied, "I am 78." The doctor exclaimed, "Wow, 78. How do you stay so healthy? You look like a 60 year old." The man explained, "Well, my wife and I made a pact when we got married that whenever she got mad she would go into the kitchen and cool off and I would go outside to settle down." "What does that have to do with it?" asked the doctor. The man sighed, "I've pretty much lived an outdoor life."

County. Nicolas Morales, 44, was arrested Friday by Alhambra police. He appeared at the Alhambra branch of L.A. County Superior Court on Tuesday afternoon clad in a blue jumpsuit and glasses. After the private attorney his wife hired for his defense told the judge the firm was declining to represent him, Morales was appointed a public defender and placed back in custody under $10.3 million bail. He faces up to 300 years in state prison if convicted as charged, said district attorney’s office spokeswoman Sarah Ardalani in a written statement. The first attack prosecutors accused Morales of committing occurred in 2016, either late on Oct. 9 or early Oct. 10. They continued every few months until this year — the last attack Morales was charged for happened on New Year’s Eve. Sgt. Steven Carr, a spokesman for the Alhambra Police Department, said police arrested Morales in connection to that final attack on Dec. 30, 2017. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rhonda Re: Desktop Themes Dear Webby, First let me say thanks for all the tips, jokes and of course those outrageously cool pics you send daily.

A feisty 70 year old woman had to call a furnace repairman. After a quick inspection the man put some oil into the motor and handed her a $70 bill for labor. "Labor charges!" she exclaimed. "It took you five minutes." The repairman explained that his company had a minimum one-hour charge on every house call. "Well, I want my remaining 55 minutes of labor," the lady responded, and she handed him a rake. The repairman spent the next 54 minutes in her yard bagging leaves. And one minute making sure that traveling charges were itemized separately, and that she would never ever get a house call again.

A farm boy accidentally overturned his wagonload of wheat on the road. The farmer that lived nearby came to investigate. "Hey, Willis," he called out, "forget your troubles for a while and come and have dinner with us. Then I'll help you overturn the wagon." "That's very nice of you," Willis answered, "but I don't think Dad would like me to." "Aw, come on, son!" the farmer insisted. "Well, OK," the boy finally agreed, "but Dad won't like it." After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked the host. "I feel a lot better now, but I know Dad's going to be real upset." "Don't be silly!" said the neighbor. "By the way, where is he?"

Tricia turned to the man in the next seat and remarked, "If we lose one more engine, we'll be up here all day!"

From Bill: My mom has a lead foot, so I was not surprised when a state trooper pulled us over as we were speeding through Georgia. Hoping to get off with a warning, Mom tried to appear shocked when the trooper walked up to the car. "I have never been stopped like this before," she said to the officer. "What do they usually do, ma'am," he asked, "shoot the tires out, with a jet fighter?" ___________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing their contract's sick-leave provisions. One morning at the bargaining table, the company's chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, "This man," he announced, "called in SICK yesterday!" There on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score. The silence in the room was broken by a union negotiator. "Wow," he said. "Think of what kind of score he could have had if he hadn't been sick!" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Taj Dickerson, Groton, Connecticut Cop injured during traffic stop after hanging out of car for a mile Police confirm one of their own was injured during a traffic stop overnight after a suspect took off with the officer halfway inside the car. The Deputy Chief of Groton police says that just before 4 a.m., Officer Tyler DeAngelo pulled over a car driven by Taj Dickerson. Officer DeAngelo smelled marijuana, and Dickerson admitted to having some on him. A back--up unit arrived, and Dickerson went along with the officer's request to step out of his car. Dickerson informed officers that he had a pit bull inside the car, and officers told him to take the dog out. A further search found crack cocaine, and officers made to arrest Dickerson. While they were putting the dog inside the cruiser, Dickerson ran back to his car. Officer DeAngelo chased after Dickerson, and a fight erupted inside the car. While Officer DeAngelo continued to struggle with Dickerson, Dickerson was able to put the car into drive and sped awa with DeAngelo partially hanging out. The car continued west on Fort Hill Road, and onto Poquonnock Road. DeAngelo tried getting Dickerson to stop as the car reached 50 mph. Officer DeAngleo remained halfway out of the car for around 1 mile. When it seemed that Dickerson was steering the car at a telephone pole, Office DeAngelo grabbed the steering wheel and steered them away. DeAngelo then let go of the car, and fell onto Poquonnock Road, sustaining some non-life threatening injuries. Other officers stopped and helped him while some others chased Dickerson onto I-95 south. Dickerson continued into New London, and with the help of the New London Police Department, was able to be stopped. Dickerson was finally taken into custody without any other issues. It was not reported whether Dickerson managed to toss dope or guns during the escape. He was held on a $500,000 bond, and taken to Superior Court for arraignment. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lee Re: Possibly fake online account Dear Webby, "log into your online account" might be misunderstood by some not aware readers.

An American couple was driving in Canada and got lost. Finally, they drove into a city. They saw a gentleman on the sidewalk, so the husband pulled the car up to the curb. His wife rolled down her window and asked, "Excuse me, sir, we're lost. Can you please tell us where we are?" The gentleman on the street replied, "Saskatoon, Saskatchewan." The lady rolled up the window, turned to her husband and said, "We really are lost. They don't even speak English here."

There was laughter in court when Barbara Woodward’s lawyer insisted she would struggle to walk just a quarter of a mile from her mansion to the main road. Woodward also asked to be spared doing unpaid work claiming it would “put her in an alien surrounding’’ as she never worked in her life and warned it would “make her feel uncomfortable and out of her depth.’’ JPs found her guilty of drunk-driving and banned her for two years but spared her the customarily assessed unpaid community work, since it would be undue hardship for others to have to put up with her whining. Her huge mansion appears to have annexes for servants, gardeners, drivers, etc. Having a servant drive her to tennis and shopping does not appear to be a problem. Woodward, of Chelford, Cheshire, was three times over the limit in her £79,000 ($110,858.68 USD)Mercedes G-class 4x4 two days after her lawyer husband’s funeral.

A man is at Grand Central Station waiting for his train that leaves at 6 p.m., but he has forgotten his watch. So he looks for someone to ask the time. He spots a guy carrying two suitcases and sporting this fabulous hi-tech watch, so he asks him for the time. The guy replies "Sure, which country?" The fella asks, "How many countries have you got?" to which the man replies, "All the countries in the world!" "Wow! That's a pretty cool watch you've got there." "That's nothing," the man says. "This watch also has a GPS facility, fax, e-mail and can even receive NTSC television channels and display them on its miniature active color pixel LCD screen!" "Boy, that's incredible. I wish I had a watch like that one. You wouldn't consider selling it by any chance?" "Well, actually the novelty has worn off for me, so for $900, if you want it, it's yours." The watchless traveler can hardly whip out his checkbook fast enough to hand over a check for $900. The seller takes off the watch and gives it to him. "Congratulations, here is you new hi-tech watch." Then, handing the two suitcases over as well, he says, "And here are the batteries."

Taxiing down the tarmac, the Delta jet abruptly stopped, turned around and returned to the gate. After an hour long wait, it finally took off. A concerned passenger asked the flight attendant, "What was the problem?" "The pilot was bothered by a noise he heard in the engine," she explained. "Oh, and it took a while to fix it," said the passenger. "Not exactly." replied the stewardess, "It just took us a bit to find a deaf pilot." ---------------------- I had a ticket to fly to Nashville, Tennessee on Sept 12, 2001 Well, because of some Mooselims using jets to murder over 3000 people, nobody was allowed to fly anywhere on Sept 12. On Sept 13, Canada opened up the airports again and I got booked on a similar flight. I got onto the plane, a different seat than expected, but I got on. And sat for about 2 hours waiting for the take-off. They make you keep the seats upright, in the most uncomfortable position, while waiting on the tarmack. The pilot had gotten cold feet and had chickened out. They had to find a different pilot, who was not such a coward. Naturally, by the time I got to Toronto, the plane to Tennessee had left. I asked Karma to retaliate and hoped the air line fired the chicken! I had to overnight in Toronto and send the Humor Letter out the hard way. The next morning I found out that my Carry-On, with the laptop inside, was not allowed on board. Then I almost had a heart attack watching some big bozo slam my carry-on UPSIDE DOWN onto the hard roller at the bottom of the conveyor up to the cargo hatch of the plane, and even turn and grin. He was proud of himself! I was standing at the entrance of the plane and I guess I must have shrieked or cussed. Thhe stewardess standing there slowing down the line into the plane, explained to me that putting the luggage on upside down was the rule, so that it would not roll off the conveyor belt. That was no excuse though for slamming it onto the hard bottom roller, and I did not enjoy the flight at all. Everybody else on the plane was worried about Mooselims trying to take over the jet. I was fretting about my laptop and was more than ready to inflict very gross violence on anybody trying to annoy me just one hair more. They let me off the plane first because I bulldozed past the people, who were getting their stuff from the overhead bins. My carry-on came onto the carousel shortly after I got there. I opened it up right there, opened the laptop and hit the button. It came up just fine. Phew!!! Thank you Lord! So I zipped up the carry-on and strode out of the totally empty airport. No other planes had arrived yet or were scheduled to leave, and nobody from the jet I arrived in, had walked as fast as I did. The empty and totally silent airport echoed and amplified my steps like it was a horror movie. Spooky! Once I was out, had gotten my pre-ordered rental car, and was on the freeway South I finally relaxed. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Plastic Cutting Boards for Meat When cutting meat, use a plastic cutting board instead of a wood one. It is much easier to clean bacteria from a plastic cutting board than it is from wood, which will also need to be reseasoned after cleaning. After using a cutting board for meat, wash it well (or wash it in the dishwasher) before using it again to avoid transfering bacteria to other food items. Tip provided by When your plastic cutting board gets too marked up from sharp knifes, you can scrape it with a long straight butcher knife or a wide putty knife or spatula that has been square trimmed for scraping. To square trim a putty knife, clamp a file into a vise or a partially opend drawer, and rub the putty knife at a right angle to the file against the serrations. Instead of a thin knife type edge, you will get a flat edge with very sharp corners. A square trimmed putty knife also works very well for scraping glue or paint off a desk or for preparing furniture for painting. You can trim a fuzzy cutting board to smooth as new very quickly with a square trimmed putty knife. Hold it at nearly right angle to the board and PULL it towards you. Never push it, just scrape towards you. If there are deep cuts, rotate the board after a few scrapes so that you are scraping in a different direction. That helps to avoid low spots. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________ A young lady came home from a date, rather sad. She told her mother, "Jeff proposed to me an hour ago." "Then why are you so sad?" her mother asked. "Because he also told me he was an atheist. Mom, he doesn't even believe there's a hell." Her mother replied, "Marry him anyway. Between the two of us, we'll show him how wrong he is."

"I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven." "You're both wrong," the third insisted. "The most effective prayer position is lying prostrate, face down on the floor." The repairman could contain himself no longer. "Hey, fellas, " he interrupted, "the best prayin' I ever did was hangin' by my climbing spurs upside down from a telephone pole in a thunderstorm." ___________________________________________________

A fellow about my age, sitting a couple of stools down had also over- heard the conversation. He looked over at the two young men and with the wisdom of years says, "Marry her. That'll put a stop to that!" ______________________________________________________ Here is one I remember reading when I started learning English around 1960. The Master of the house is comfortably installed in an armchair in the library, reading a newspaper. Suddenly, James, his butler, rips the door open and shouts, "Sir, the Thames is flooding the streets!" The Master looks up calmly from the newspaper and says, "James, please. I have already told you. If you do have something important to tell me, first knock on the door, then enter and inform me of the issue, in a quiet and civilized manner. Now please, do so." James apologizes and closes the door behind him. Three seconds later, the Master hears a knock on the door. "Yes?" James partially enters the room, and with a wide gesture, makes an invitation as for somebody on the outside to enter, then says, "Sir, the Thames." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Looking For Al Gore _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ When the type on a man's printer begins to grow faint, he calls a local repair shop where a friendly man informs him that the printer probably only needs to be cleaned. "We charge $50 to clean a printer," he says, "so you might be better off reading the manual and doing the job yourself." Surprised by the clerk's candor, the man asks, "Does your boss know that you discourage business?" "Actually, it's my boss's idea," the clerk replies sheepishly. "We usually make more money on repairs if we let people try to fix things themselves first." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Adrienne Satterly, 41, Hiram, Georgia Georgia woman torches ex-husband's home and 19 others. Adrienne Satterly, 41, allegedly piled matresses on the floor of his home in Atlanta, Ga, before setting them alight. But the blaze, which she set while it was dark in the early hours of Sunday, spread to neighboring homes, forcing residents to flee. Satterly then walked to a Walmart an hour away and called 911 around 3.25am to come pick her up. She did not mention the fire. In 911 audio obtained on Tuesday by The Constitution, Satterly never mentioned a fire. She told a dispatcher she had a 'kitty cat and a suitcase' and asked if someone could pick her up from Walmart. 'Where do you need them to go?' the dispatcher asked. 'To Greystone,' Satterly said. 'By the hospital.' She gave her address to the Rosemont Court home but told the dispatcher that she had been ordered to leave the residence due to a court case. Documents revealed police had been called to the home nearly two dozen times in the past year for calls including domestic disputes, thefts and disagreements with tenants who were renting a room. The report had no details about why court had ordered her to leave her ex-husband's home, but it seems her alcohol problems and refusal to contribute to the rent were some of the issues. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Erin Re: Weed out Gmail Dear Webby, In 2005 you told me that Gmail had near unlimited storage. Well, I forgot that "near" is not the same as absolulte, and I got a warning, that I was getting close to my limit. I am, for a change, not blaming you. Dumping SPAM and TRASH gave me enough space to stop panicking. Now, how do I get rid of the oldest mails? I never look up anything over a year old anyway. Thanks Erin Dear Erin Go into the settings in the sprocket icon, and change the mails per page to 100. Then click the < > on top to show Oldest On Top Set up convenient HotKeys for Select all (on the page) and Delete ALL (selected) I use ~ and ! for those. While in the INBOX, with Oldest on top, I hit ~! and the 100 oldest are gone. Great finger exercise while you are waiting for something to load. If you want to get really rambunctious, and automate it, make a filter. Step 1 Log in to your Gmail account. Click the gear icon near the top-right corner of the window, then click "Settings" from the drop-down menu that appears. Step 2 Click the "Filters" section tab, then click "Create a new filter." Step 3 Type the following in the the "Has the words" text box: older_than:x For "x" you should type the time frame you prefer for deleting old messages. You can use "d" for days, "w" for weeks, "m" for months and "y" for years. For example, if you wanted to delete messages older than one month, you would type "older_than:1m" without the quotation marks. For deleting messages older than 9 months, type "older_than:9m". Step 4 Click "Create filter with this search." Step 5 Check the box beside the option labeled "Delete it" and the box beside "Also apply filter to." The latter option will also list the total number of conversations that fit your criteria. That might take a while. Step 6 Click "Create filter." All your emails older than the date you specified will be deleted. Future Deletion Step 1 Click the gear icon in Gmail; then click "Settings." Step 2 Click the "Filters" tab. Step 3 Click the "Edit" option beside the filter you created for deleting old messages. You can easily find the correct filter because it will display the criteria you specified. Step 4 Click "Continue" in the section that appears with your search criteria. This screen looks like the section that appeared when you originally set up the filter. Step 5 Check the box beside the option "Also apply filter to." Step 6 Click "Update filter." This will again delete all your messages earlier than the time frame you specified. When Gmail deletes your messages, they are sent to the "Trash" section, which is listed in the left-hand navigation section. They will remain in Trash for 30 days until they are permanently deleted. You delete all items in the trash if you prefer by click the "Trash" section and then clicking "Empty Trash now." UNTIL you dump the Gmail TRASH, all that stuff still counts against your allotment. Dumping the trash should be the last and final part of the cleanup. Have FUN! DearWebby

With no warning and clear out of the blue, a husband said to his wife, "Honey, I have invited a friend home for supper tonight." His wife replied, "What? Are you crazy? The house is a mess, I didn't have time to go shopping, all the dishes are dirty, and I don't feel like cooking a fancy meal tonight!" The husband said, "Yes, same as usual. I know all that." "Then why in the world did you invite your friend for supper tonight?" asked the wife. The guy answered, "Because the poor fool is thinking about getting married."

Thanks to Walter the stonecarver from for this report: The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even" A Bit Cross." Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was during the great fire of 1666. Also, the French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country's military capability. It's not only the English and French that are on a heightened level of alert. Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides." The Germans also increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbor" and "Lose." Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual, and the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Protecting Plants From Slugs Cut old metal window screens into 1x1 squares.

Latest news reports advise that a cell of 4 terrorists has been operating in Merseyside, Liverpool. Police advised earlier today that 3 of the 4 have been detained. The Merseyside Regional Police Commissioner stated that the terrorists Bin Sleepin, Bin Drinkin and Bin Fightin have been arrested on immigration issues. The Police advise further that they can find no one fitting the description of the fourth cell member, Bin Workin, in the area. Police are confident that anyone who looks like Workin will be very easy to spot in their community. ___________________________________________________

What is a Mail Washer? 

Good Morning, ,
Today is Sunday, February 25

Callisburg Independent School District in Texas has a serious message
for any potential shooters, and it appears to be working.

The idea of armed educators is nothing new. CNN reported that about
four years ago, the “guardian” program was implemented. The program
allowed a small force of volunteer school staff to carry concealed
firearms on school grounds.

The educators complete active shooter scenario training once a year
and also practice at gun ranges.

Callisburg High School is not alone. KSAT reported that the Texas
Association of School Boards said it was aware of 172 districts that
allow staff to carry firearms.

While the debate about whether educators should be armed rages on,
these schools have already taken the necessary steps to protect
children years ago. Just the signs are new.

Other schools across the nation also have armed educators.

Good for them!

Have FUN!

The family had finally gotten their first dishwasher. The father liked to inspect every new thing that cam into the house, so he stayed in the kitchen and watched the display count down all forty-four minutes of the dishwashing cycle. Suddenly he called out for his wife, shouting, "It's useless, the dishwasher is useless!" The wife was amazed that the newest appliance could be broken after only one use, but he insisted that because they had a water softener, the dishwasher was useless. She decided to look for herself, and there it was, on the inside door, next to the detergent dispenser: USE LESS WITH SOFT WATER

______________________________________________________ The best measure of a man's honesty isn't his income tax return. It's the zero adjust on his bathroom scale. --- Arthur C. Clarke (1917 - ) ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Sandie for this story: A couple was invited to a swanky masked Halloween Party. She got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone. He, being a devoted husband, protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed, and there was no need for his good time to be spoiled by not going. So he took his costume and away he went. The wife, after sleeping soundly for about an hour, awakened without pain; and, as it was still early, decided to go to the party after all. In as much as her husband didn't know what costume she'd be wearing, she thought she'd have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she wasn't around. She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every chick he could, getting a little kiss here and a warm squeeze there. His wife went up to him, and being rather seductive herself, he left his current partner high and dry and devoted his time to this new babe who had just arrived. She let him do whatever he wished, naturally, since he was her husband. Finally he whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed, so off they went to one of the cars and they did it all! Zowie! Just before unmasking at midnight, she slipped away and went home, put the costume away and got into bed, wondering what kind of explanation he would have for his behavior. She was sitting up reading when he came in. She asked how the evening had been? He said "Oh, the same old thing. You know, I never have a good time when you're not there." Then she asked, "Did you dance much?" He replied, "You know, I didn't dance even one dance. When I got there, I met Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys, so we went into the den and played poker all evening. But I'll tell you...from what I heard, the guy I loaned my costume to sure had a real good time!" ______________________________________________________ >From Wendy Have you heard the one about the Marine and the Air Force man, sitting over drinks in a bar one night bragging about the women they had made love to?

He went home and dragged the chalk board from the children's bedroom into their bedroom... and every time he and his wife made love he put a mark on the board. The sun was just coming up as the AF man dragged himself to the edge of the bed to put a third line on that chalkboard, at which time the Marine walked in and took a look at the chalkboard and said, "A hundred and eleven?

Ivan Bakh, 61, was charged when his neighbors called police to report that they were awakened by a loud bang and found a large hole in the headboard of their beds, just over their heads. A second hole was discovered in the dresser mirror at the foot of the victims’ bed, police say. Further investigation from the victims uncovered another hole in the adjacent living room (on the other side of the wall from the dresser mirror) and a fourth hole in the living room’s far wall. After police were summoned, they made contact with Bakh, the victims’ next-door neighbor, according to the police report. An investigation of his apartment revealed a large hole through the wall between his apartment and the victims’ next door. Several books were found, taped together and propped on a shelf. One had a target drawn on the cover in red marker, police say. The books appeared to be perforated by several rounds, according to police. A 9 mm shell casing was located in the hallway between the bathroom and the bedroom of Bakh’s residence, police say. Also located inside the home was a safe containing a 9 mm Glock. The rounds located inside the magazine of the Glock handgun were a match to the 9mm spent casing located on the ground inside the residence, according to police. Bakh was charged with shooting into a dwelling and reckless discharge of a firearm and transported to Lee County Jail, police say. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Maria Re: Hotmail woes Dear Webby, Hi Dear Webby, I miss you........the last letter I received from you is this one.

When I was working as a clerk at a sporting-goods store, a woman came up to my register with a package of white athletic socks. "Will you open this so I can see how the socks feel?" she asked. Reluctantly I tore open the package, and she scrutinized the merchandise. She handed me the package, saying, "I'll take them." Relieved, I started to ring her up, until she interrupted me. "Can I have another pack? This one's been opened." I told her: "I'll go talk to the manager", locked the till, took the opened package and dropped it back on the shelf on my way to a better job.

John took Wendy to dinner at a really posh restaurant. They walked in, were ushered to a table by a formally dressed maitre d', and sat down at a table on which were displayed the finest china and crystal.

Atchison, 24, Williamsville, Missouri Man stabbed couple to death, returned to kill their baby one day later A 24-year-old Missouri man has been charged with killing parents and baby last week. Drew D. Atchison, 24, of Williamsville, which is roughly two hours south of St. Louis, has been charged with three counts of felony murder in the first degree, three counts of felony armed criminal action, felony child kidnapping and felony tampering in the first degree, CBS affiliate KFVS reported. The three victims were Harley Million, Samara Kitts and Willa Million, who was Harley and Samara's 17-month-old daughter. Atchison's killing spree allegedly started Jan. 25. Sheriff's deputies claim Atchison "confessed to killing Million and Kitts while at the home with a knife. He then allegedly put their bodies in the back of Million's truck and went back inside and placed the child in a room with dogs and shut her inside so she could not get out. He then left the home and drove to his home," KFVS added. The next morning, Atchison allegedly went back to the couple's home and tried to destroy evidence before putting the 17-month-old baby in the truck. He eventually pulled off the highway and threw the knife in some woods, according to the report. Atchison then took the baby out of the truck and shot her to death, myAJC reported. Samara Kitts' mother Christa has used Facebook to share her sorrow and anger over what happened. "Never felt so much hate in my heart for anyone. And to think he sat at my kitchen table when they were teens. Was at my grand daughter first birthday party with his own daughter," Christa Kitts wrote on Facebook.

I found some great patterns on the internet, but I am stomped. It says that I have to be in the landscape mode to make copies to fit on letter-size paper. I checked into the space, it is on landscape, but when I want to make copies, it still only prints about 3/4 of the pattern on each line. What gives?? Thank you for your help. I have a Microsoft Windows 7. Thumbs up for your daily humor letter, it makes my day! Sincerely ---Trudy Dear Trudy That is slightly different depending on which printer you use, and also which browser. Usually, you can set ORIENTATION, if you go to CTRL P ORIENTATION and select Landscape.

The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers. He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?" Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster, the boss asked, "Is your daddy home?" "Yes," whispered the small voice. "May I talk with him?" the man asked. To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No." Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?" "Yes," came the answer. "May I talk with her?" Again the small voice whispered, "No." Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left home alone, the boss decided he would just leave a message with the person who should be there watching over the child. "Is there any one there besides you?" the boss asked the child. "Yes," whispered the child, "A policeman." Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?" "No, he's busy," whispered the child. "Busy doing what?" asked the boss. "Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the fireman," came the whispered answer. Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, "What is that noise?" "A hello-copper," answered the whispering voice. "What is going on there?" asked the boss, now alarmed. In an awed, whispering voice, the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper." Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated, the boss asked, "Why are they there?" Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle, "They're looking for me."

Tammy is lying limp on the floor, with the table operator kneeling over her. The man is stunned. He asks, "What happened? Is she all right?" The operator replies, "I don't know. She put all her money on 29, and 36 came up. Then she just fainted...!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Fresh Frozen Lasagna Instead of buying frozen lasagna, make your own. Any basic lasagna recipe and be frozen for later use. Line your baking dish with aluminum foil and then prepare the lasagna as if you were getting it ready to bake it. Then fold the foil over the top of the lasagna and either put it in a large freezer bag or wrap it in plastic wrap. When you are ready to use it, remove the plastic wrap or plastic bag and put it back in the same baking dish in which you prepared it. Tip provided by ____________________________________________________ From Connie Top 9 Things I Hate 1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time.... I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is? When they point at their wrist, I look at THEIR wrist, and tell them "I dont know." 2. People who are willing to hunt all over the house to search for the T.V. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change the channel manually. 3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it? 4 When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they? 5 When people say while watching a movie "did you see that?". No Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the floor. 6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?"... Didn't really give me a choice there, did ya sunshine? I tell them "NO!, I am allergic to questions." 7. When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new, then there has neve r been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new. 8. When people say "life is short". What the hell?? Life is the longest thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's longer? 9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus come yet?". Think about it...If the bus came would I be standing here?
A honeymoon couple is in the Watergate Hotel in Washington. The bride is concerned "What if the place is still bugged?" The groom says, "I'll look for a bug." He looks behind the drapes, behind the pictures, under the rug "AHA!" Under the rug was a disc with four screws. He gets his Swiss army knife, unscrews the screws, throws them and the disc out the window. The next morning, the hotel manager asks the newlyweds "How was your room? How was the service? How was your stay at the Watergate Hotel?" The groom says, "Why are you asking me all of these questions?" The hotel manager says, "Well, the room under you complained about the chandelier falling on them!" ___________________________________________________

The Reverend Stennett Kirby, 64, was filmed in the £1.5 million ($ 2,103,261.82 USD) vicarage of West Ham Parish Church in East London, which he lives in. He has been the vicar of the church since 2007, and is considered a respected member of the community, but is currently on sick leave for unknown reasons. In the shocking footage obtained by the Sun on Sunday, he appears to be smoking from a crack pipe before he struggles to snort a line of white powder as he relaxes with a friend. At one point, he seems to be watching pornography and says: ‘All I want now is for a woman to be sucking my dick that would be nice. ‘How much would a woman cost to come here? In other words if I really want it then I will pay for it.’ His friend reportedly then says he prefers prostitutes to relationships, which unmarried Mr Kirby, who is currently on sick leave from work, agrees to. The footage then seems to show him talking about his plans to go into Central London and buy more drugs. He says: ‘I’m going to Soho with my mate for dinner. ‘I’m going to sex shops to get some poppers.’ _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Elsa Re: Making a PDF file Dear Webby, Like most of your fans, I barely remember the topics that you have talked about, but not the gory details. OK, how do I make a PDF file? I dont have the ridiculously expensive Microsoft office or 365, just Office Libre. I tried SAVE AS, but PDF is not an option. Thanks Elsa Dear Elsa PDF is not a 2-way street. Once you export it as a PDF, you would need a different program, like Nitro, to convert it back to editable text. To make a PDF, go into Libre Office WRITE, hit FILE scroll down to EXPORT AS PDF. That EXPORTS to a new and separate file. You can use a different file name and destination, for example on a thumb drive or camera chip. The original text file will not be renamed or changed in any way. The program basically "takes a picture" of it and exports that picture. Because it is quite a nuisance to edit a PDF, if you have to make changes, just edit the original text file and export it again. Have FUN! DearWebby

Bob decided to try his hand at a new job and secured one as a used car salesman. He had no experience in this field but he figured he could use the old sales pitch that the car was "like brand-new" and had only been driven by a little old lady on Sundays. He tried that approach on every prospective buyer but none seemed to believe him and no sales were made that day. The following day he decided to change his sales pitch, and sure enough he sold three cars. The manager of the used car dealership called him over and asked what he had done to bring about all these sales. Bob grinned, "Well they didn't believe my little old lady story, so I told them that the car had previously been owned by a nymphomaniac who only used the backseat."
