_____________________________________________________ John and Mary were having dinner in a very fine restaurant. Their waitress, taking another order at a table a few paces away noticed that John was suddenly and silently sliding down his chair and under the table, while Mary acted quite unconcerned. Their waitress watched as John slid all the way down his chair and out of sight under the table. After the waitress finished taking the order, she came over to the table and said to the woman, "Pardon me, ma'am, but I think your husband just slid under the table." The woman calmly looked up at her and replied firmly, "Oh, no he didn't. In fact, my husband just walked in the front door." ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Louise Turpin, left, and David Turpin, right, sit in court for a preliminary hearing on June 20, 2018.

And when she struggled to remember the address of the home, the 911 operator asked her if she was around the corner from her house. "Yeah, I think," the girl said. "I've never been out.

'I've never been out': Chilling 911 call reveals abuse in Turpin family By Sonya Hamasaki and Eric Levenson, CNN Updated 4:06 AM ET, Thu June 21, 2018 Surveillance shows Turpin siblings' escape Play Video Surveillance shows Turpin siblings' escape 01:05 Riverside, California (CNN)The 17-year-old girl who called police to report her allegedly abusive parents in Perris, California, said the house the family lived in smelled so badly that she could barely breathe, and she thought she and her 12 siblings might need to go to the doctor. And when she struggled to remember the address of the home, the 911 operator asked her if she was around the corner from her house. "Yeah, I think," the girl said. "I've never been out. I don't go out much." That chilling 911 call was made public Wednesday as part of a preliminary hearing in the case against David and Louise Turpin, the California couple accused of holding their 13 children captive in a "house of horrors." Louise Turpin, left, and David Turpin, right, sit in court for a preliminary hearing on June 20, 2018. Louise Turpin, left, and David Turpin, right, sit in court for a preliminary hearing on June 20, 2018. Prosecutors say the couple beat and tortured their children, kept them chained to their beds and starved them- all while the family dogs were kept clean and well-fed. They were arrested on January 14 after their 17-year-old daughter escaped from a window and called 911 on a deactivated cell phone. The Turpin siblings are comprised of six minors and seven adults, ranging in age from 2 years old to 29. David Turpin, 56, and Louise Turpin, 49, pleaded not guilty to more than 40 charges, including torture, false imprisonment, abuse of a dependent adult and child abuse. David Turpin also pleaded not guilty to one count of lewd conduct with a minor. Despite the horror of the 911 call, the girl's voice sounded remarkably calm and clear while relating her experience. But the call, as well as police who responded to the scene, provided several disturbing new details from the home and the degree to which the parents controlled their children's lives. "I can't breathe because of how dirty the house is," the Turpin daughter said on the call. "We don't take baths. I don't know if we need to go to the doctor." Accounts of abuse and starvation Other Turpin children told investigators they were abused. A 14-year-old girl said Louise Turpin threw her down the stairs when she was caught in her mom's room, investigator Brett Rooker of the Riverside County Sheriff's Office testified. "She said she was terrified of her mother," he said. An 11-year-old girl said that Louise Turpin would often punch them with a closed fist and hit her with an open hand, Riverside County Deputy Sheriff Daniel Brown testified. The girl said that sometimes, her mother pulled her hair so forcefully it would lift her off the ground, Brown said. The girl said she was "always hungry," he further testified. The children were fed jalapeno baloney sandwiches while the parents ate Jersey Mike's, pizza and fries, he said. The girl said Louise Turpin would buy apple juice but the children weren't allowed to drink it. She kept pie in the fridge or pantry until it became moldy and then threw it away. A doctor who treated the family said the 11-year-old girl was in the worst condition when the examined her, Patrick Morris, Supervising Investigator for Riverside County District Attorney, testified. She had a body weight percentile of .01 and her mid arm circumference was equal to that of a 4.5-month-old baby, Morris testified. The doctor said she had psychosocial dwarfism, stunted growth due to living in an environment that is abusive or neglected. The 15-year-old boy had difficulty walking, vitamin D deficiency, and visible scoliosis. He told the doctor that he wanted to kill animals and could predict the future, Morris testified. The 17-year-old Turpin daughter who made the 911 call weighed about 97 pounds with a BMI of 2.2% when doctors first examined her, Morris said. In other parts of the call, told the operator that her parents were abusive and had chained up two of her sisters, and that she thought her father had guns in the house. She also said she hadn't taken a bath in almost a year. Riverside Deputy Manuel Campos, who responded to the 911 call, testified on Wednesday that the girl appeared much younger than 17. "She appears not to bathe regularly," he also said. "There was odor emitting from her body of one that doesn't bathe regularly." The girl was shaking on the call and "scared to death" from the daring escape out of the window, Campos said. She said that she was kept in the room with her sisters for about 20 hours a day, and that she was only allowed to leave the room to eat, use the restroom and brush her teeth, Campos said. If she broke the rules, she would be disciplined in the form of knocking on the head, pulling of hair, or being smacked in the face. After she watched a Justin Bieber video on a cell phone, her mother choked her, she told Campos. In addition to the physical abuse, there was a sexual incident with her father, the girl told police. She said her father pulled her pants down, grabbed her and put her on his lap. She tried to push him away, and pulled her pants up, Campos said. He also tried to force kisses on her mouth, she told Campos, and this happened about 10 times. The girl said her father told her not to tell anyone, Campos said. They remain in custody in lieu of $12 million bail each after pleading not guilty to all of their charges.

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

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

_____________________________________________________ Two priests died at the same time and met Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter said, "I'd like to get you guys in now but our computer's down. You'll have to go back to Earth for about a week but you can't go back as humans. What'll it be?" The first priest says, "I've always wanted to be an eagle, soaring above the Rocky mountains." "So be it," says St. Peter and off flies the first priest. The second priest mulls this over for a moment and asks, "Will any of this week 'count', St. Peter?" "No, I told you the computer's down. There's no way we can keep track of what you're doing. The week's a freebie." "In that case," says the second priest, "I've always wanted to be a stud." "So be it," says St. Peter and the second priest disappears. A week goes by, the computer is fixed, and the Lord tells St. Peter to recall the two priests. "Will you have any trouble locating them?" He asks. "The first one should be easy," says St. Peter. "He's somewhere over the Rockies, flying with the eagles. But the second one could prove to be more difficult." "Why?" asketh the Lord. St. Peter answered, "He's on a snow tire somewhere in Tasmania." ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jan Sivak, Calderdale, England Todays Bonehead Award: Police find suspected burglar hiding under bed with legs poking out If you’re going to hide from the police, perhaps it would be wise to make sure your legs aren’t sticking out from beneath your bed. Burglary suspect Jan Sivak didn’t follow this advice and was snapped with his feet hanging out at his home in Halifax. West Yorkshire Police then posted the picture on social media with the caption: ‘He will not be winning any awards for hide-and-seek champion soon.’ Sivak, from Halifax, had gone on the run after failing to surrender to bail at Bradford Magistrates Court on Tuesday. He had been accused of stealing £4,500 in cash from a fish and chip shop. After he was caught he eventually appeared in court and admitted failing to surrender, which he received a 14 day sentence for. Gulfraz Khan, defending, said Sivak had tried to get to court on the day of his appearance but was unsuccessful. Sivak pleaded not guilty to burglary of a non-dwelling and was remanded into custody until July 28 for trial at Bradford Crown Court.
Tech Support Pits From: Brenda Re: Is there any allowance for auto-responders? Dear Webby I can understand that with your volume of mail you consider autoresponders a silly and unnhecessary nuisance. I use Hoitmail and Yahoo mail, and as you probably know, they are a bit flakey and one never knkows if mail to me actually got through. Woould an auto-responder be OK in my case, telling people that their mail did get to me and will be answered soon? Brenda Dear Brenda Get Gmail. It is free, and very reliable. I have used it since it got started, and have not lost any mail. Some got accidentally sorted into the spam or trash folder, but it DID arrive. Using an autoresponder because you are sleeping or on the potty is silly. If somebody expects an instant reply, then you should tell them to get a life and consider that other people have lives too! I answer mail at all times of day or night. Depending on the time zone, people might be sleeping or cooking or shopping or working away from their computer. So, what? Sooner or later they will see my mail, and that will be soon enough. I also know that many people use their employer's computer for their email. If their address has the domain of some company, then I know not to expect answers on the weekend. I do NOT need an autoresponder telling me that Ms Hortensia Buttflower will return to work on Monday. The same probably applies to you and your contacts. If you don't reply instantly, the smarter ones will realize that you might be working on something else, or sleeping. Once you get Gmail or any reliable mail, forget about having to be a nuisance.

Thanks to Cookie for this story: Stopping to pick up my daughter at kindergarten, I found out that the topic of "Show and Tell" that day had been parents' occupations. The teacher pulled me aside. Whispering, she advised, "You might want to explain a little bit more to your daughter what you do for a living." I work as a training consultant and often conduct my seminars in motel conference rooms. When I asked why, the teacher explained, "Your daughter told the class she wasn't sure what you did, but said you got dressed real pretty and went to work at motels." ____________________________________________________

It happened at the Ramada at 2200 S. Meridian. Police say the suspect whose real name is Geiselle Stevenson helped men ambush the victim. The victim was staying at the hotel from out of town. He told police he went to pick her up at her apartment at the 10 West Apartments and took her back to his room. When he opened the door, he told police two men came up behind him and forced him into the room at gunpoint. The three of them made off with his clothing and cash, and yanked the gold chain he was wearing around his neck. Police are looking for a woman who goes by the name "Asian Persuasion" on the street, who they say helped rob a man at a hotel. They escaped in a gray Chevy Impala with a "Jesus" sticker on the back.

Police are looking for a woman who goes by the name "Asian Persuasion" who they say helped rob a man at a hotel. She has a number of previous arrests. Back in March, Stevenson was in the news after police say she tried to steal a woman's purse in a motel parking lot. Then, she was caught trying to sneak into a man's room before he slammed the door in her face. She did end up inside another victim's room. The robbers stole four pairs of the victim's Jordan sneakers totaling about $840 and a $600 gold chain, among other belongings, according to the report. One of the men, whom police identified as Dennico Henderson, 25, held the victim at gun point with a .40-caliber semiautomatic pistol while the other man and Asian Persuasion went through the victim's belongings, according to the report. Police impounded the Chevy Impala. They are still looking for Stevenson. Henderson, the gunman, was arrested and released on bail.

A new miracle doctor was in town. He could cure anything and anybody, and everyone was amazed with what he can do. Everyone except for Mr. Smith, the town grouch. So Mr. Smith went to this 'miracle doctor' to prove that he wasn't anybody special. "Hey, doc, I have lost my sense of taste. I can't taste nothin', so what are ya goin' to do?" The doctor scratches his head and mumbles to himself a little, then tells Mr. Smith, "What you need is jar number 43." Jar number 43? Mr. Smith wonders. So the doctor brings the jar and tells Mr. Smith to taste it. He tastes it and immediately spits it out, "This is gross!" he yells. "I just restored your sense of taste Mr. Smith," says the doctor. That will be $100. So Mr. Smith goes home very mad. One month later, Mr. Smith goes back to the doctor along with a new problem, "Doc," he starts, "I can't remember!" The doctor scratches his head and mumbles to himself a little and tells Mr. Smith: "What you need is jar number 43..." Before the doctor finished his sentence, Mr. Smith fled the office. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keeping Tupperware Unstained In order to keep your Tupperware looking new, try this.

It happened around 3 p.m. Monday on East Houston Street, according to 'The Gleaner.' The Morganfield Police Department says a resident came home from work to find Jeremiah Garib, 19, Xavion R. Elkins, 20, and two juveniles running out of her house. Officials said the resident was able to positively identify Garib as an acquaintance of her son, who was not home. MPD Chief Geoffrey Deibler said Garib, Elkins and the juveniles did not have permission to be in the dwelling. Police said after looking around the house, the owner discovered that she'd interrupted a party of sorts with cake, ice cream, and marijuana. "When the individuals broke into the home they had baked a cake, and were preparing to eat the cake and some ice cream when the homeowner returned home from work," a news release said. "Upon fleeing they had left some marijuana residue inside the home and the smell of smoked marijuana was in the air." In a later interview with The Gleaner, Chief Deibler said the group apparently couldn't find icing so they opened a jar of homemade jam and were using it to ice the cake. Garib had allegedly left his shirt and loafers behind, but had taken the time to grab a pair of the resident's son's shoes, Deibler said. When Garib allegedly left the house, he went to a local business called Theramax on North Court Street. There he hid some marijuana that had been "packaged for sale" in a trash can, Deibler said. Two were arrested and face charges.
Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Cloud Backup, again Dear Webby, Good Morning: I was wondering if you have had a chance to consider my question about cloud backup. I am presently backing up to two external drives using "EaseUS ToDo". I find this to be less than satisfactory, because I still lose data. The original email appears below. Thanks again. Bill Hi Bill I answered you on June 14. Look for the one where I mentioned Xcopy. To: gardner@cottagecountry.net Subject: Re: Cloud Backup Are you blocking me or sending me to your SPAM folder? Here it is again: ================================== Hi Bill By using an intelligent method to backing up, you can save yourself a lot of money. For example, Windows is stashed on a hidden partition and can be re-installed from there. If the hard drive fails, you can get it again from the manufacturer. Most programs you can download again and re-install, if you have saved the download URL and your registration or serial number. You can print those. Do that with everything, except the stuff you have created or received. That will actually be very little and will easily fit into a free Google Cloud back-up. You can even put it onto a thumb drive or camera chip. You can use a DOS bat using xcopy, the world's most powerful "program". With xcopy you just copy what is newer at the source than at the destination, a trick that saves a lot of time and space. Make a plain text list of what you want to back up. then write a "bat" using that list and pasting xcopy /D /E /C /H /I /O /R /Y /Z in the front of each line, and at the end a space and the destination. An example line would be: xcopy /D /E /C /H /I /O /R /Y /Z C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\Eudora\*.* I:\alpha\eudora I: in this case is the camera chip, that you use for back-up. Once you got all the goodies listed like that, save the file as back.bat Find the file with the file explorer, and make a shortcut icon for it, and drag that to the desktop. Now, every time you swat that shortcut, it will check all items in your list to see what is newer on the computer than on the camera chip. It won't waste time on stuff, that is not newer, and just back up what is newer. You can, of course, use two camera chips, one to be in your safety deposit box, and the other in a chip reader, and once a month you swap the chips. All those "switches" (/D /E /C /H /I /O /R /Y /Z) are optional. You can read up on them here, but no need to study and memorize them. Just use them the way I got them in the example. You can, of course, use different ones. Up to you. XCOPY source [destination] [/A | /M] [/D[:date]] [/P] [/S [/E]] [/V] [/W] [/C] [/Q] [/F] [/L] [/G] [/H] [/R] [/T] [/U] [/K] [/N] [/O] [/X] [/Y] [/-Y] [/Z]
[/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...] source Specifies the file(s) to copy. destination Specifies the location and/or name of new files. /A Copies only files with the archive attribute set, doesn't change the attribute. /M Copies only files with the archive attribute set, turns off the archive attribute. /D:m-d-y Copies files changed on or after the specified date. If no date is given, copies only those files whose source time is newer than the destination time. /EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]... Specifies a list of files containing strings. Each string should be in a separate line in the files. When any of the strings match any part of the absolute path of the file to be copied, that file will be excluded from being copied. For example, specifying a string like \obj\ or .obj will exclude all files underneath the directory obj or all files with the .obj extension respectively. /P Prompts you before creating each destination file. /S Copies directories and subdirectories except empty ones. /E Copies directories and subdirectories, including empty ones. Same as /S /E. May be used to modify /T. /V Verifies the size of each new file. /W Prompts you to press a key before copying. /C Continues copying even if errors occur. /I If destination does not exist and copying more than one file, assumes that destination must be a directory. /Q Does not display file names while copying. /F Displays full source and destination file names while copying. /L Displays files that would be copied. /G Allows the copying of encrypted files to destination that does not support encryption. /H Copies hidden and system files also. /R Overwrites read-only files. /T Creates directory structure, but does not copy files. Does not include empty directories or subdirectories. /T /E includes empty directories and subdirectories. /U Copies only files that already exist in destination. /K Copies attributes. Normal Xcopy will reset read- only attributes. /N Copies using the generated short names. /O Copies file ownership and ACL information. /X Copies file audit settings (implies /O). /Y Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an existing destination file. /-Y Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an existing destination file. /Z Copies networked files in restartable mode. /B Copies the Symbolic Link itself versus the target of the link. /J Copies using unbuffered I/O. Recommended for very large files. Instead of a camera chip, you can, of course, also back up onto Google Drive, Microsoft Drive, BackBlaze, whatever. Entirely up to you. The major advantage is that Xcopy is extremely fast, since it does not waste time on files, that are not new since the last back-up. That greatly reduces the chance of a power bump or impatient shut- down while a back-up is still in progress. =========================== From: Darlene Re: SecurityCenter.FirewallDisableNotify Good Morning, DearWebby This is in reply to Don and removing the Firewall Disable notify from his Spybot.

From Shirley: Sensational warnings spawned south of the border WASHINGTON (AP) - An odd-looking Canadian quarter with a bright red flower was the culprit behind a false espionage warning from the U.S. Defense Department about mysterious coins with radio frequency transmitters, The Associated Press has learned. The harmless ''poppy quarter'' was so unfamiliar to suspicious U.S. army contractors travelling in Canada that they filed confidential espionage accounts about them. The worried contractors described the coins as ''filled with something man-made that looked like nano-technology,'' according to once classified U.S. government reports and e-mails obtained by the AP. The silver-coloured 25-cent piece features the red image of a poppy, Canada's flower of remembrance and support for the troops, inlaid over a maple leaf.. ..........

A judge was instructing the jury that a witness was not necessarily to be regarded as untruthful because he changed his statement after he gave it to the police. "For example," he said, "when I entered my chambers today, I was positive that I had my gold watch in my pocket. But then I remembered that I left in on my nightstand in my bedroom." When the judge returned home that evening, his wife asked him "Why so much urgency for your watch? Isn't sending three men to pick it up for you a bit extreme?" "What?" said the judge, "I didn't send anyone for my watch, let alone three people. What did you do?" "I gave it to the first one," said the wife, "he knew exactly where it was." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Potato Storage To keep potatoes from budding, place a small apple in the bag with the potatoes.

______________________________________________________ You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what you're doing is work or play. --- Warren Beatty (1937 - ) ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Three pastors from different congregations were having lunch and sharing experiences and ideas to help each other out with their different fellowships. After several minutes of animated conversation, the first one remarks, "Hey, you know, we've got a serious problem at our church that I want to discuss with you guys." The other two pastors nod and he goes on, "Well, it's bats. We can't seem to get these bats out of our attic. The singing and organ playing wake them up, and they start flapping around. Then when I start to preach, we can still hear them moving around up there and it's really hard for anyone to pay any attention. The kids start to cry and, well, it's starting to really get in the way of a good church service." The second pastor says "Well that's interesting, because we've had the same problem, they won't stay out of our belfry. We've tried ringing the bells at all hours, spraying chemicals, we've even had a couple of exterminator companies out. Nothing's worked yet." He throws up his hands in exasperation and shakes his head. The third pastor smiles and nods his head knowingly. "Well, gentlemen. We had that problem a few years ago, and we found a quick solution." he says. The other two pastors look up with hope on their faces, and he goes on, "It was easy. We went up there, got to know 'em a little bit, got 'em baptized and started passing the collection plate to them. Haven't seen 'em since." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

"Women, to me, are nothing but sex objects." "Really?" "Yep," John shook his head sadly, "Whenever I mention sex, they object." ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jeffrey Wolfman, 32, Milltown, New Jersey Bank robber dropped the stolen loot on the way out A Milltown man has been charged in connection with Wednesday's robbery of a Somerset County bank, the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office announced Thursday afternoon. Jeffrey Wolfman, 32, was arrested after the robbery at Peapack- Gladstone Bank in Bedminster. Witnesses told police they saw Wolfman on a nearby side street removing an outer layer of clothing. As he did so, they saw money dropping to the ground, according to the prosecutor's office. When police approached Wolfman, more cash dropped out of his clothes, it was stated in a news release. Wolfman had reportedly entered the bank and demanded money from a bank teller before fleeing on foot, according to the prosecutor's office. Wolfman was charged with second-degree robbery and is being held in Somerset County Jail awaiting a detention hearing.

Advice to aspiring newsletter writers: 1. Verbs HAS to agree with their subjects. 2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with. 3. And don't start a sentence with a conjunction. 4. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive. 5. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat) 6. Also, always avoid annoying alliteration. 7. Be more or less specific. 8. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary. 9. Also too, never, ever use repetitive redundancies. 10. No sentence fragments. 11. Contractions aren't necessary and shouldn't be used. 12. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos. 13. Do not be redundant; do not use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous. 14. One should NEVER generalise. 15. Comparisons are as bad as cliches. 16. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc. 17. One-word sentences? Eliminate. 18. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake. 19. The passive voice is to be ignored. 20. Eliminate commas, that are, not necessary. Parenthetical words however should be enclosed in commas. 21. Never use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice. 22. Use words correctly, irregardless of how others use them. 23. Understatement is always the absolute best way to put forth earth shaking ideas. 24. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know." 25. If you've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times: Resist hyperbole; not one writer in a million can use it correctly. 26. Puns are for children, not groan readers. 27. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms. 28. Even IF a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed. 29. Who needs rhetorical questions? 30. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement. 31. Eschew obfuscation. And the last one... 32. Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

Potatoes have a good amount of moisture and nutrients for a new cutting to develop from. Cut a 6 to 8 inch stem from a rose cane that has flowered. Snip at a 45 degree angle with pruning clippers, then snip off any flower heads and hips. Use a screwdriver or drill bit to make a hole in the potato for the stem to go in snuggly. Push the rose stem into the potato, but not all the way through. In a pot or in the ground away from direct sunlight, dig a hole in some good soil and pop in the potato and cutting. Cover with at least 3 inches of soil, making sure the potato is fully covered. Keep the soil moist. After some time, if you gently tug on the cutting and feel resistance, that means its roots have grown and it's time for it to be moved to more direct sunlight.

Thanks to Dora for this story: One evening, two girlfriends and I went to a nightclub, only to find the place packed with young people. At 40+, we felt old, but before we could make a dignified exit, a tall, handsome man approached us. "Perhaps we were being a little hasty in leaving," I thought. Then with a big smile, the man extended his hand to one of my friends and said, "Hello. Remember me? You taught me in third grade." ____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A woman in our diet club was lamenting that she had gained weight. She'd made her family's favorite cake over the weekend, she reported, and they'd eaten half of it at dinner. Her husband teased her and said she would never be able to stay away from the other half until dinner the next night. The next day, she said, she kept staring at the other half, until finally she cut a thin slice for herself. One slice led to another, and soon the whole cake was gone. The woman went on to tell us how upset she was with her lack of willpower, and how she knew her husband would rub it in. Everyone commiserated, until someone asked what her husband said when he found out. She smiled. "He never found out. I made another cake and ate half!" ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Juan Rodriguez, Los Angeles, California Fake California cop arrested thanks to smart mother A California woman was praised for her “momma bear instincts” after she distracted a gun-toting fake cop who was terrorizing her husband and four children on Sunday by simply offering him a taco, police said. The family was enjoying carne asada tacos and soda from a food truck in the City of Industry in Los Angeles County around 6:30 p.m. when a “dangerous stranger” approached the family and began terrorizing them, police said in a news release Monday. The family had stopped to get food after a day at the waterpark. The man, identified as Juan Rodriguez, allegedly claimed to be an undercover cop and flashed his gun concealed on his waistband and flashed a badge in an attempt to prove his identity, police said. The mother, however, saw right through the disguise, police said. “The mother instantly began to put together a plan in place to distance her husband, three daughters and toddler who was still buckled in his car seat inches away from the man with a gun,” police said. The mother, going for the "taco tactic," offered the 38-year-old suspect a taco and told him she needed to grab napkins from the food truck. “The man with the gun continued to flash his gun and ransack through the mother’s purse as she walked away,” the news release stated. The mother approached customers at the taco truck, told them not too look a back and told them a man with a gun was threatening her family. The taco truck employees and customers immediately called 911. Police found Rodriguez standing next to the family’s van when they arrived at the scene. Rodriguez allegedly tried to escape by tossing his gun in the van and trying to get in. “Deputies were able to detain the suspect before anything further occurred. Deputies recovered the gun and made sure all family members were unharmed,” police said. Rodriguez was charged with child endangerment, impersonation an officer and outstanding warrants.
Tech Support Pits From: Richard Re: End to spam Dear Webby, is there any hope that spam will ever decrease? Richard Dear Richard Yes, sure, there is always hope. Just rent more senators than the spammers do. (You can't buy them any more, because they won't stay bought, but you can rent them.) As it is, there are spammers suing people who get them kicked out from their servers, claiming that they are protected by the U-CAN-SPAM law. Unless you have more money than the spammers, about all you can do now is to get some good spam control software like FireTrust Mail Washer and get good at tuning it. It's easy enough for anybody to make filters with it, and some people even treat it as a challenging game to stay ahead of the spammers and trash their stuff, unseen. Have FUN DearWebby

A couple moved to the country when they retired. One mild winter, they had a bit of a problem with rodents in the garage. So they bought one of those little sub-sonic mouse repellants, the kind you plug in and they emit some kind of sound that drives off mice. The husband was showing it to their neighbor and explaining that it was an animal repellant. He told her that it worked on every thing from mice to elephants. "Really!?" she said, "Mice to elephants, eh." sounding a bit skeptical. "Yes," he replied, seriously. "We've had it here for a couple of weeks now and we haven't had a single elephant in the garage the whole time!"

_____________________________________________________ If you catch a bad cold, and you go to the doctor, it will, with medication, last for seven days. if you catch that same cold, and you don't see a doctor, it will last a whole week! ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Bruce Steffenhagen, 56, Nathan Martin, 38, Orange County, Florida 2 Florida men arrested for using pop "bombs". One Florida man wanted tenants out of an apartment off the garage of his home. So, he went along with his pal's plan to get them out using a bomb. That's according to Orange County deputies, who said Nathan Martin and Bruce Steffenhagen admitted to setting off a pair of "acid bombs" — homemade noise makers often involving plastic pop bottles and common household materials — to create noise and ruckus, after they were arrested last week. Most kids have at one time or other used "pop bombs", usually involving putting some Altos mints into a nearly full pop bottle, capping it and tossing it. The sound created is identical to an 8 foot 2 x 8 standing on end on a driveway, and being knocked over by a bit of wind, - after the kids have retreated out of sight. Pop bombs don't do any damage unless they are tossed into a window box full of geraniums the morning of the flower competition. It apparently can mess them up and get the owner a lower ranking. Other than that, they are just nuisance noise. Usually, that is not a big deal, except the boneheads called them"acid bombs" and got some bored deputies all excited. Martin, 38, is in Orange County Jail on a charge of throwing or projecting explosives. Steffenhagen, 56, posted $15,000 bond after being charged with being a principal to discharge a destructive device. (It destroyed the pop bottle used to make noise) Both live with Steffenhagen's 86-year-old father, Jack Steffenhagen, in a Beach Boulevard house owned by Jack's living trust. Police were called to the house after neighbors heard two explosions.

My grandmother came over on the very next boat. ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Christopher Hill, 36, Jacksonville, Florida Man arrested after taking cash register from Walmart, then trying to carjack 2 people at knifepoint A man was arrested Friday after he took a cash register drawer from the Walmart at River City Marketplace and then tried to carjack two people at knifepoint. Christopher Raymond Hill, 36, was arrested on charges of strong arm robbery, carjacking with firearm or deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and trespassing, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office online inmate information search. Investigators found the incident began when Hill went into the Walmart liquor store and asked if he could have change for a $20. Hill was told by the cashier he would have to buy something and he then bought a pack of cigarettes. The cashier, LaToya King, spoke with Action News Jax about the incident. She said she didn't think twice of Hill, who was dressed in bright orange, until she opened her cash register. "When I did that, he leaped over the counter and he grabbed my hand and I was like, 'Sir, what are you doing?'" King said. Once the register was open, Hill grabbed the register and ran out of the store, according to a JSO arrest report. A witness saw Hill get into a silver Ford SUV, but it did not appear to start, so he got out and ran. Police said Hill approached a man who was sitting in the parking lot near Supercuts. Hill asked the man for a ride and the man refused. Hill asked for a ride when he refused the 36-year-old pulled out a knife cutting his hands and leg. "I turned the ignition off, grabbed my keys, opened the door and boom, there he was," Scott Reardean said. According to the report, Hill put the cash register in the Reardean's truck bed and pulled a knife, cutting Reardean on the hands and leg, the arrest report said. "I was bascially just doing this, trying to get the knife off me, and he's like, trying to pull me and he yanked my shirt and ripped it all up," Reardean said. Reardean said to Action News Jax that he was able to grab his pistol from his truck and pointed it at Hill, who then ran away toward Starbucks. Hill ran to the car of a woman who was in line at the Starbucks drive-through. She told police she rolled down her passenger's side window to see what he wanted and she said Hill opened her door and got into the car. The woman said Hill told her to drive because someone was chasing him. She told police she tried to push him out of the vehicle and he would not get out. According to the report, she was in fear for her life, so she got out of her car to to get her Ruger pistol out of her trunk. Hill got out of the car and came toward her. She said she pointed her pistol at him and he ran away. When police arrived, they found Hill had barricaded himself inside the bathroom at Supercuts, but he came out when officers ordered him to. According to the report, Hill told police, "The reason I was running and did this was because somebody was after me." King said she is still shocked about what happened, but she said she's glad Hill is behind bars. "Now I know he's locked up and he can't do this to anyone else again," King said. As of Monday morning, Hill was still in the Duval County Jail being held on a bond of $91,512. His next court date is set for July 2.

The fact that Todd Richard Ferry left an anonymous apology note in the family's mailbox the day after the kidnapping attempt in no way lessens the terrifying impact of what he tried to do, Judge Mary Jane Bowes concluded in the Superior Court's opinion. Investigators said Ferry, now 59, of New Enterprise, had an obsession with Mennonite girls in Bedford County long before he tried to snatch the 17-year-old off her bicycle in November 2014. The girl told police that she rode her bike home from work at a produce farm and was getting mail from her family's mailbox when a man knocked her off her bike and grabbed her. She didn't see her attacker's face, but heard him say, "Get in the car, you're coming with me." She broke free and ran home, but not before her assailant ripped her dress and bruised her shoulders and knees. The girl's mother called state police the next day after finding an envelope in her mailbox from the attacker. "I'm sorry about the wrestling match I had with you," the unsigned note read. "I fell in love with you...There is no way to approach you and now I have failed my only way...I still want to meet you and you don't need to fear me." Police said they later found Ferry's DNA on that envelope, and on a pair of sweat pants found lying in the victim's driveway. They said Ferry at first denied trying to abduct the girl, then admitted to accosting her because "he just wanted to talk to her." A county jury convicted Ferry on charges of attempted kidnapping, false imprisonment, child luring and simple assault after hearing that evidence. Several Mennonite witnesses testified during his trial that Ferry was "overly friendly" with young Mennonite girls. In denying Ferry's appeal, Bowes rejected his arguments that his sentence the maximum allowed for his crime is too severe and that prosecutors should not have been allowed to use the DNA evidence or the testimony of other Mennonite and "English" witnesses against him. Bowes discounted Ferry's contention that there was no proof he actually was trying to kidnap the teen. She cited the terror inflicted on the girl by Ferry's "highly inappropriate attempt to get to know her by force." The evidence of Ferry's guilt is "overwhelming," the judge found. Bowes upheld Ferry's jail sentence despite his claim that "there was minimal harm caused" to the victim. Instead, Bowes agreed with county Judge Travis W. Livengood that only the maximum prison sentence was appropriate in the case. She cited Livengood's conclusions that Ferry showed "absolutely no remorse," that Ferry planned the abduction in great detail, and that his behavior was "anti-social" and "strange."

_____________________________________________________ Food for thought... You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus: 1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die. 2. An old friend who once saved your life. 3. The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about. Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car. Think before you continue reading. This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again. The candidate who was hired! (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. I love this, I may actually use it sometime for an interview situation. WHAT DID HE SAY? He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend, and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams." ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Scott Miller, Kathy Miller, Johnstown, Florida Couple involved in major drug bust in Johnstown Johnstown police have identified two people they say were involved in a major drug bust Saturday night. The police chief, Robert Johnson, said Scott and Kathy Miller were arrested and are now facing felony charges. JOHNSTOWN- Johnstown police have identified two people they say were involved in a major drug bust Saturday night. The police chief, Robert Johnson, said Scott and Kathy Miller were arrested and are now facing felony charges. Johnstown said officers were tipped off about suspicious drug activity happening at a home on Bedford Street. He said they got a search warrant and served it at the home Saturday night. Inside, police said they seized 45 pounds of marijuana, a gun and $3,000 in cash. "As I'm told, these people just moved into the neighborhood within the last week or so. So, this is a really nice bit of police work in a very quick time period for what these people have been here for," said Johnson. Johnson said the street value of the drugs seized is about $325,000. According to online documents, the Millers are facing felony charges including, manufacturing or possession with intent to deliver. Bail is set at $500,000 each.
Tech Support Pits From: Nina Re: Camera comparison Dear webby, What should I look for when comparing different cameras? Nina Dear Nina Look for a large lens to reach further into twilight, darkness and indoor shots without flash, and also higher picture quality. Look for a long optical zoom and anti-shake. Totally ignore digital zoom. That's a gimmick that doesn't work. Look for a real optical view finder that shows the correct zoom. I do like having the fold-out swivel monitor for indoor shots, but outside I find a camera quite useless, if it has no optical viewfinder. Don't worry about how many MegaPixels are claimed in the ads. That number is as phony as a Sears vacuum cleaner horsepower rating. About all that number is good for is for comparing cameras of the same brand. Different manufacturers use different size pixels and different ways to use them. Have FUN DearWebby

A Catholic boy was bragging to his Jewish friend. "My priest knows more than your rabbi." "Of course he does," said the Jewish boy. "You tell him everything." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cheap Cleaner For large cleaning projects, try TSP (TriSodiumPhospahte) TSP used to be the main active ingredient in most detergents, but got a bad name because it promoted underwater weed growth in canals, rivers and lakes, into which improperly treated sewage was dumped into. What was bad was not the TSP, but Millions of people using a lot of it all year long. It was simply too much of a good thing. TSP is still a powerful phospate fertilizer, and your tomatoes will love it, when you dump the used cleaning water near them. You won't find TSP at the supermarket, where all the overpriced and nicely packaged retail cleaners are. You can find it at building and industrial paint suppliers, in the PAINT section. Painters use it, after thinning it down with a lot of water, to clean dirty walls before painting. TSP is dirt cheap. At Canadian Tire for example, a gallon jug of concentrate is CDN $4.95. For cleaning previously painted stuff, use 40 parts of water to one part TSP. For a really greasy stove vent hoods or car engines, use one part water and one part TSP.

Two hours later as the water continued to rise another neighbour passed in a rubber raft, offering to take them to higher ground. Again he refused saying, "I have faith in the lord, he will save me." Four hours passed and as the man and his son clung to the chimney, trying to avoid the rising water a Coast Guard helicopter hovered overhead and threw down a ladder, "Climb up so we can take you to higher ground!" he heard them say. Again he refused saying, "I have faith in the lord, he will save me!" Well no one else came and they met their fate. Standing before God, the man said, "Lord I believed in you, my faith was strong and unwavering and you let us drown!" Looking at him God replied, "You dumb ass!

Grant Hall, 21, is facing a host of weapons possession charges after the firearms were found in his 2006 Honda Element Monday. His car was found in the LAZ parking lot above the terminal on the fifth floor of the Midtown terminal, Port Authority police said. Police Officer Shaun Kehoe and rookie Police Officers Joey Cassera, William Salzmann, and Jeffrey Hager — who were on their first day of service at the bus terminal — were called to the parking lot on a report of a suspicious person looking into car windows of parked vehicles. The cops quickly found Hall, who confessed that he had been living in his car inside the parking lot for the past two weeks. Hall was making his way to Montreal, he told the officers. Cops inspected Hall’s vehicle, recovering the two unloaded handguns, a 9-mm. magazine that can hold 30 rounds, two more magazines that can hold 15 rounds each, 60 9-mm. hollow-point bullets, a machete and a hatchet. Hall was charged with two counts of gun possession, according to court documents.

A lion woke up one morning feeling rowdy. He went out and cornered a small monkey and roared, "Who is mightiest of all jungle animals?" The trembling monkey says, "You are, mighty lion! Later, the lion confronts a deer and bellows, "Who is mightiest of all jungle animals?" The terrified deer stammers, "Oh great lion, you are by far the mightiest animal in the jungle!" On a roll now, the lion swaggers up to an elephant and roars, "Who is the mightiest of all jungle animals?" Fast as lightning, the elephant snatches up the lion with his trunk, slams him against a tree half a dozen times, the lion is feeling like it'd been run over by a safari wagon. The elephant then stomped on the lion till it looked like a corn tortilla, then crapped on it, and ambled away. The lion hollered after the elephant, "Damn, just because you don't know the answer, you don't have to get so p'd off !"

Lady Lake police were called at 8 p.m. Sunday to 1753 Lauren Lane on the Historic Side of The Villages to investigate the accident. Suzette Ruth Martin, 50, had been driving a golf cart out of a garage when it “slammed into” nearby landscaping, according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department. Martin then tried to move the golf cart forward and her passenger was thrown out. Lake EMS transported the passenger from the scene by ambulance. Martin said she had consumed 14 to 15 beers and admitted she was drunk, the report indicated. She declined to take part in field sobriety exercises, indicating she was certain she would fail them. She was unable to provide a breath sample and told police she has emphysema and lung cancer. Martin was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence and booked at the Lake County Jail. She was released after posting $1,000 bond. Even though there are no cars allowed in most parts of The Villages, residents know that impaired driving with golf carts and lawn mowers is the same crime there as anywhere else.

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. ___________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ >Thanks to Wendy for this one: One evening, after the honeymoon, Tom was working on his Harley motorcycle in the garage. His new wife was standing there by the bench watching him. After a long period of silence she finally said, "Honey, I've just been thinking, now that we are married, maybe it's time you quit spending so much of your time out here in your garage. You probably should also consider selling your Harley and all your welding equipment along with your gun collection, and your fishing gear, and the boat and lose all those stupid model airplanes, plus dump that vintage hot rod sports car, and your home brewing equipment..." Tom got a horrified look on his face. She said, "Darling, what's wrong?" He replied, "There for a minute, you were starting to sound like my ex-wife." "Ex-wife!?" she screamed, "YOU NEVER TOLD ME YOU WERE MARRIED BEFORE!" Tom replied, “I wasn't.." ------------------ Right On! She needs to be EXed. NOW! Hopefully she will learn, that one man in the garage is worth more than a dozen in the pub downtown or on the couch. ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Alberto Ebavardo Gutierrez-Reyes, 26, Rochester, New York Illegal, who buried body of killed girlfriend, may get deported again. A farm worker who authorities said admits to burying the body of his girlfriend but not killing her was charged Friday with having counterfeit citizenship documents and re-entering the country after twice being deported. The U.S. Attorney's Office announced the criminal complaint against Everardo Donoteo-Reyes of Mexico as crews used heavy equipment in their ongoing search for his girlfriend's missing toddler at an upstate New York farm. Selena Hidalgo-Calderon and 14-month-old Owen Hidalgo-Calderon were last seen alive on May 16. The mother's body was found May 23 on the farm in Sodus where she and Donoteo-Reyes worked. Law enforcement and volunteers have been searching for the boy ever since. Donoteo-Reyes, also known as Alberto Ebarado Gutierrez-Reyes, was arrested on an evidence-tampering charge May 24 after a hunter's trail camera recorded him carrying a shovel in and out of the woods where his girlfriend's body was found, the Wayne County sheriff said. A check of his fingerprints determined the 26-year-old was in the country illegally. Investigators found that he had a counterfeit alien registration card in the name of Alberto Gutierrez and a fake Social Security card, U.S. Attorney James Kennedy Jr. said. There was no immediate information on an attorney who could comment on Donoteo-Reyes' behalf. According to the criminal complaint, agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested Donoteo-Reyes in Gretna, Louisiana, in September 2016 and deported him in October. Five months later, in March 2017, he was arrested again in Laredo, Texas. He pleaded guilty to unlawfully entering the United States and was sentenced to 15 days in confinement before being deported again, the complaint said. The new charges come a day after prosecutors and law enforcement met with relatives of Owen Hidalgo-Calderon to update them on the case, WHEC-TV reported. The search area for the missing toddler has been expanded, but the team has dwindled from hundreds to a few dozen. Owen's grandmother hasn't given up hope that he is alive, according to WHAM-TV. Estela Calderon said she wants to shower him with the love that she is no longer able to give her daughter. Donoteo-Reyes is scheduled to appear in federal court in Rochester on Monday.

Vlad Dear Vlad Taking the memory chip out and reading it in a standard chip reader is much better, and much faster too. The added advantage is that the computer views the chip reader as if it was just another hard drive, and at the same or better speed as a hard drive.

Thanks to Rosie 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 business trip's on after all. I'll call you when I get there." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Dividing Up Your Ground Beef I cook up 10 pounds of ground beef at a time and then I divide it up into one pound packages (our family's size) and just freeze it.

Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: Camera memory chips Dear Webby, Dear Webby; I have another question for someone I consider to be an expert. I am taking pics w/ a digital camera & have a memory card. I usually take 15-20 pics a month at our church gospel sing. Then I take them from the camera & resize to about 480 px. and put them in a folder in my documents before emailimg them on to others. Then I take these pics & put them on a disk to be sure I don't lose them. After I have done this I am in the habit of deleting them from the memory card. Is there any amount of time this card can be used over & over before it will need to be replaced? I don't like keeping them on the card because it gets too confusing. I have even saved some of your dad's cactus pics. Thanks ever so much for your time & patience. Sharon § Dear Sharon I have heard of camera chips that were stepped on, vacuumed up, eaten by toddlers or pets, but never of one that stopped accepting data. At a rate of 20 pictures per month, you can probably copy pictures on and delete them from that chip for about 3000 years, maybe more. Camera chips don't seem to go bad, just replaced. When you go buy paper and get a 16 GB camera chip free if you buy a whole case of paper, you will probably go for it, - and retire your 500 MB chip. And by the time you need more paper, they will probably give away 64 GB chips. So, don't panic yet. Have FUN DearWebby

A pleasingly plump Lucy consulted her doctor for advice. The doctor advised that she run ten miles a day for thirty days. This, he promised, would help her lose as many as twenty pounds. Lucy followed the doctor's advice, and, after thirty days, she was pleased to find that she had indeed lost the pesky twenty pounds. She phoned the doctor and thanked him for the wonderful advice which produced such effective results. At the end of the conversation, however, she asked one last question: "Are you going to come pick me up, or do I have to run home 300 Miles?"

A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor's office. After his checkup, the doctor called the wife into his office alone. He said, "Your husband is suffering from a very severe stress disorder. If you don't do the following, your husband will surely die. Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant at all times. For lunch make him a nutritious meal. For dinner prepare an especially nice meal for him. Don't burden him with chores or discuss your problems with him - it will only make his stress worse. No nagging. And most impor- tantly, you have to increase your frequency of intimacy. If you can do this for the next 10 months to a year, I think your husband will regain his health completely." On the way home, the husband asked his wife. "What did the doctor say?" "He said you're going to die," she replied. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Buying Clothing Off Season When buying new clothing, I purchase my winter clothes and shoes in the summer and my summer clothes in the winter.

Lingerie purchases lead to Apple employee's prison term in $243 K embezzlement case Toni Ann Branca, 42, was sentenced to three years in prison for using an Apple company credit card for personal spending. Authorities in New Jersey said Toni Ann Branca, 42, was sentenced Friday to three years in a state prison. She had pleaded guilty in January to a second-degree theft by deception charge, Law360 reported. The former administrative assistant for Apple used a company credit card to make purchases at the lingerie retailer and at Gucci and Louis Vuitton shops, authorities said. But it was the Victoria’s Secret purchases that Apple discovered first, leading to her undoing, NJ.com reported. Branca, of Livingston, N.J., worked mostly from home, handling scheduling and travel arrangements for other Apple employees, the report said, and she was issued an American Express card for making purchases related to her job. Investigators found that she submitted duplicate requests for reimbursement, to be paid straight to her bank account, and used the duplicate payments for her personal spending. A review found that Branca racked up $110,000 in retail spending, the Philadelphia Voice reported, and paid back $95,000 prior to her sentencing. “Branca went on a lavish shopping spree at the expense of her employer, but ultimately she bought herself a state prison term," said Veronica Allende, director of the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice.

_____________________________________________________ A friend was complaining that her boyfriend would not say. "I love you," even if explicitly asked to do so. The only exception, she said, was when they were in fact in the act of making love. Then, if asked, he would say the sacred words. I suggested that she should not take too much comfort in the exception. When making love, I explained, men will say anything. "He'd tell you he's the Easter Bunny if that's what he thinks you want to hear," I told her. The conversation rattled on from there. A couple of weeks later, she related the following. "We were in bed, making love. I said, 'Tell me you love me.'" He replied, 'I love you.' I said, 'Tell me you're the Easter Bunny.' He stopped for a second, and announced, 'I'm the Easter Bunny.' So I slapped him. "The poor guy probably still doesn't know what happened!" ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by James Roger Bundrick, 56, Clearwater, Florida Creep With His Phaser Set To Stun Tells Police He Is James Tiberius Kirk A man arrested Monday for masturbating at a bus stop identified himself as James Tiberius Kirk upon his arrest by Florida police, according to court records. The perp claiming to be Captain Kirk was spotted around 11:20 AM vigorously “stroking his penis that was under his shorts,” reported a Clearwater patrolman. The action “corrupted the public morals and sense of public decency,” alleged investigators. After the defendant stroked himself for more than two minutes, a cop asked what he was doing. “The defendant stated, ‘I’m scratching myself.’” Upon being arrested for disorderly conduct, the man said that he carried no ID, but gave his name as that of the commander of the starship USS Enterprise. Cops actually did a “wants/warrant check” on the Kirk name, which came back with negative results. Police subsequently used a facial recognition program to determine that “Kirk” was actually James Roger Bundrick, 56. In addition to the disorderly conduct rap, Bundrick was charged with a second misdemeanor, providing a false name to law enforcement. He is being held in the Pinellas County jail in lieu of $400 bond. Pictured above, Bundrick is a convicted felon who was released from state prison in August 2016 after serving nearly four years in custody on multiple felony charges.
Tech Support Pits From: Annie Re: Soft focus for picture Dear Webby, How do I make a certain part of a picture sharply focused and the rest slightly out of focus? I need to highlight different parts of a machine to show what the instructions at that paragraph are all about. And I need some fsat and quick way of doing it, not messing around for hours with masks and tricky stuff. I use PSP. Thanks Annie Dear Annie Use the rounded rectangle selector or the lassoo in point to point mode and select the part that you want sharp. CTRL SHIFT I or mouse to Selection, Invert Now you have everything except that part "selected". SHIFT B brings up the Brightness / Contrast setting. Increase brightness and reduce contrast. That will lighten and soften the current selection (which is inverted, the opposite of the original selection). Have FUN DearWebby
The preacher was having a heart-to-heart talk with a backslider of his flock, whose drinking of moonshine invariably led to quarreling with his neighbors, and occasional shotgun blasts at some of them. "Can't you see, Ben," intoned the parson, "that not one good thing comes out of this drinking?" "Well, I sort of disagree there," replied the backslider. "It makes me miss the folks I shoot at."

"Hello," said the Father, "And hows Mrs. O'Donovan, didn't I marry you two years ago?" "You did that, Father." "And are there any little ones yet?" "No, not yet, Father." "Well now, I'm going to Rome next week, and I'll light a candle for you." "Thank you, Father." And away she went. A few years later they met again. "Well now, Mrs. O'Donovan," said the Father, "how are you?" "Oh, so-so," said she. "And tell me," he said, "have you any little ones yet?" "Oh yes, Father. I've had three sets of twins, and four singles--ten in all." "Now isn't that wonderful," he said, "And how is your lovely husband?"

The baby won't eat and the washing machine broke down. I haven't had a chance to go shopping, and besides, I've just sprained my ankle and I have to hobble around. On top of that, the house is a mess and I'm supposed to have two couples to dinner tonight." The mother was shocked and was at once all sympathy. "Oh, darling," she said, "sit down, relax, and close your eyes. I'll be over in half an hour. I'll do your shopping, clean up the house, and cook your dinner for you. I'll feed the baby and I'll call a repairman I know who'll be at your house to fix the washing machine promptly. Now stop crying. I'll do everything.

The officer let him in. _____________________________________________________ Reported by Walter, An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Crystal Methvin, 40, Douglas Nickerson, 41, St. Augustine Florida Crystal Methvin picked up with crystal meth, AGAIN Yes, I gave her bonehead awards before. According to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Jail Log, Methvin has been picked up on drug charges at least fourteen times since 1998. It’s unclear how many of the other arrests involved crystal meth — although they always involved Crystal Methvin. Florida police arrested a woman named Crystal Methvin for possession of crystal meth again Saturday morning. St. Augustine police said they arrested Methvin, 40, and her friend, Douglas Nickerson, 41, after getting an anonymous complaint about an unlicensed driver. Police arrested Douglas Nickerson on charges of possession and drug equipment. (St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office) Officers responded to the parking lot of one-story office complex at 69 Dixie Highway and found Methvin, Nickerson and an unidentified third person sitting in a vehicle. Police say the three consented to a search, and officers arrested Methvin and Nickerson after finding crystal meth and drug paraphernalia. Both were taken to St. Johns County Jail. Online records show Methvin is being held on a $5,000 bond. She was charged with drug possession. Nickerson’s bond was set at $5,500. He faces charges of drug possession and drug equipment.

A man goes to the doctor and tells him that he hasn't been feeling well. The doctor examines him, leaves the room and comes back with three different bottles of pills. The doctor says, "Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you get up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water." Startled to be put on so much medicine the man stammers, "Exactly what's my problem?" Doctor says, "You're not drinking enough water."

Thanks to Sandie for this classic: A station in Tennessee was trying to make the high cost of gas worth the price so the owner put up a sign saying, "Free Sex with Fill-Up." Soon a local redneck, Billy Ray pulled in, filled his tank, and then asked for his free sex. The owner told him to pick a number from 1 to 10. If he guessed correctly, he would get his free sex. Billy Ray then guessed 8, and the proprietor said, "You were close; the number was 7. Sorry, no sex this time." A week later, Billy Ray along with his buddy, Bubba, pulled in for a fill-up. Again he asked for his free sex. The proprietor again gave him the same story, and asked him to guess the correct number Billy Ray guessed 2 this time. Again the proprietor said, "Sorry, it was 4. You were close, but no free sex this time." As they were driving away, Billy Ray said to his buddy, "I think that game is rigged and he doesn't really give away free sex." Bubba replied, "No it ain't, Billy Ray. It ain't rigged, my wife won twice last week." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Homemade Salsa Tip I got this tip from a neighbor.

____________________________________________________ A passenger train is creeping along, slowly. Finally it creaks to a halt. A passenger sees a conductor walking by outside. "What's going on?" she yells out the window. "Cow on the track!" replies the conductor. Ten minutes later, the train resumes its slow pace. Within five minutes, however, it stops again. The woman sees the same conductor walk by again. She leans out the window and yells, "What happened? Did we catch up with the cow again..?" ----------------------------- I remember a train like that in Austria, when I was a little kid. It had an awfully interesting steam engine that leaked steam in all kinds of places that did not seem right to me, but they wouldn't let me near it. They were probably afraid I would start taking it apart. I had a bit of a reputation for doing that. Anyway, that narrow gauge train moved at a pretty good clip on the steep downhill grades, but was very slow uphill. Each of the little verandahs at each end of the rail cars they had signs that the gwown-ups told me read: "Picking flowers while the train is in motion is strictly prohibited!" There were no signs against jumping off the train at the front of a rail car and jumping on again at the back, running to the front on the inside and doing it all over again. Just no picking flowers while waiting for the rear of the rail car to come along. But I had fun anyway, until they told me to sit down and shut up. ____________________________________________________

The note that Carolyn Reichle , 28, gave to a member of staff at a veterinary office in DeLand on Friday read: “Call the cops. My boyfriend is threatening me. He has a gun. Please don’t let him know.” Reichle had allegedly been held in her home for two days, beaten and threatened by her boyfriend, Jeremy Floyd. She eventually convinced him that her dog needed to go to the DeLand Animal Hospital, according to a police report. Floyd, 39, insisted on going with her and on the car ride over he pointed a loaded gun at her and threaten to kill her and her family, according to the report. Staff at the animal hospital called police who arrested Floyd. He was found to be carrying a loaded gun. Reichle was taken to an area hospital and treated for a head injury, a black eye and bruised arms. Reichle told authorities her ordeal began Wednesday when Floyd allegedly threatened her at gunpoint and physically prevented her from leaving. She told police she tried to get the gun away from him and during the struggle the weapon went off twice. Police located two bullet holes in drywall inside the home. Police have charged Floyd with domestic violence, aggravated assault with a firearm, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and simple battery. He is being held without bail at the Volusia County Branch Jail.

Are you a Democrat, Republican or Southern Republican? Here is a little test that will help you decide. The answer can be found by posing the following question: You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, an Islamic Terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you. You are carrying a Glock Cal 40, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do? 1) Democrat's Answer: Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the man look poor! Or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? Could we run away? What does my wife think? What about the kids? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? What does the law say about this situation? Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it? Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children? Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me? Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me? Should I call 9-1-1? Why is this street so deserted? We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior. This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for few weeks and try to come to a consensus and AAARGH! 2) Republican's Answer: BANG! 3)Southern Republican's Answer: BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!

The aging process could be slowed down if it had to work its way through Congress. A curious fellow died one day and found himself waiting in a long, long line for judgment. As he stood there, he noticed that some souls were allowed to march right through the Gates of Heaven; others, though, were led over to Satan, who threw them into a burning pit of fire. Every so often, instead of hurling a poor soul into the fire, Satan would toss him (or her) to one side. After watching Satan do this several times, the fellow's curiosity got the better of him and he strolled over and tapped Satan on the shoulder. "Excuse me, there, Prince of Darkness," he said. "I'm waiting in line for judgment, but I couldn't help wondering why you are tossing those people aside instead of flinging them into the fires of hell with the others?" "Ah", Satan said with a grin. "They are people from Seattle; they're still too wet to burn!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Fighting Mildew with Bleach This is to follow up on the tip from Thrifty fun to fight mildew. A safer and better alternative than bleach is BORAX (chemical name: Sodium perborate). It can be purchased in laundry aisle of most supermarkets. The common brand is "20 Mule Team borax" Just mix the powder with water, it forms a suspension, then use that with a wet cloth. You can use a spray bottle but occasionally the spray nozzle might get clogged. But borax (imo) is safer to use than bleach and I used it last year to good effect.

Sarah Gomez, 19, was arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder, the Ontario Police Department tweeted. The incident happened on the driveway of a residence in the 500 block of West D Street around midnight, Sgt. Jeff Higbee said. Investigators believed the infant's mother and 21-year-old father had been drinking at a family gathering just a few streets away when they became involved in an argument. Gomez was behind the wheel when she struck her boyfriend with the infant in his arms, according to police. Other family members took the girl to the hospital along with the father, who suffered scrapes and abrasions, Higbee said. The child had injuries consistent with being hit by a car, the officer said. Authorities towed the vehicle to investigate it. Earlier, the agency said it expected Gomez to be charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. But it later appeared that the incident was intentional, Higbee told KTLA. Gomez is held at the San Bernardino County West Valley Detention Center.

____________________________________________________ A kindergartner brings his drawings home every day. His mother is delighted to see what he's doing, of course, and hangs each one on the refrigerator. But after a while, one thing starts bothering her. The child uses only blacks and browns for his drawings. Fearing a problem and not wanting it to get worse, she decides to take him to a child psychologist. The psychologist delicately goes to work. Every day, for two weeks, he gives the boy a battery of tests, but everything seems perfectly normal. Yet every day the little fellow continues to bring home drawings in only blacks and browns. Frustrated at not being able to get to the root of the problem, the psychologist decides to give the boy some paper and a box of crayons and observe what happens. The boy opens the box of crayons and says, "Oh, wow! A new box of crayons! At school we only have old boxes, and the only ones left in mine are black and brown." ____________________________________________________

She had denied the charge but was found guilty at Kirkcaldy sheriff court after male clients testified they had visited the brothel and paid for sex. Alasdair McIntosh, 56, revealed he got a ‘Brucie bonus’ from an Asian escort after initially paying for a £100 massage. Police found him butt naked and on top of a woman when they raided the property at Lord Gambier Wharf on May 31 last year, the trial heard. PC Stephanie McLean said Mr McIntosh was aroused, adding: ‘I observed his buttocks in the air with the female’s legs wrapped around him. ‘I told him, “get off and get up”. The female tried to cover herself up. She was wearing ­stockings and a small top. ‘Due to his nakedness, I told him to cover himself up, but he stood there with a grin on his face as if he wasn’t bothered by the scenario. He walked with no shame. He sort of strutted.’ The court erupted in laughter when her colleague PC Kevin Daglish said Mr McIntosh was acting ‘cocky’, the Scottish Daily Record reported. Officers also found Andrew Wilson, 50, in another room. He had all his clothes on at the time and claimed he was there to get treatment on a sciatic nerve. Another man said women kept ‘condoms, potions, lotions and creams’ in the flat. arrive next week Chang, from Hove, Sussex, had claimed through an interpreter the women were massage therapists but was still convicted by a jury. The mum-of-one even advertised ‘Chinese massages’ on website Gumtree. The court heard she transferred around £30,000 to an account in her home country of Taiwan and she has now been given a confiscation order to try and recoup the illicit funds. Chang moved to England four years ago after marrying a British man. Sheriff Jamie Gilchrist QC granted her bail as he considers reports before sentencing her.
Tech Support Pits From: Ross Re: Forgot MailWasher Dear Webby You Forgot to Mention MAILWASHER. Ross Dear Ross Yes, I did. Whenever I mention making filters, I automatically think of MailWasher, because I have used it for so long. Actually, I was one of the original testers in the 90s. Making filters with MailWasher is like a game. Whenever you spot a pattern, something the spammers use again and again, click on the little arrows on the right top to get the tools, hit FILTERS, ADD, and play for a minute. You can make filters dead simple like just the address of your MIL, or you can craft a complicated filter that has a few "But not if" and all kinds of fancy rules, that you simply pull down from the selector. It sounds difficult just reading about it, but once you actually play with it, you see that it is really simple and quickly turns into a fun game to outsmart the spammers. Have FUN DearWebby
Thanks to MaryAnn for this story: Signs warning of closed roadways are frequently ignored in rural Minnesota, so highway workers barely took notice when a woman drove past their sign and over the hill to the trench they had dug in the middle of the road. The workers explained the detour route to town, and she went on her way. They were surprised, however, to see the same woman coming toward them from town a couple of hours later. "Oh," she said distractedly as she again pulled up next to the trench crew. "Is it closed in this direction too?"

George, a career Army officer I once met, was jumpmaster for his unit and was taking up a few novices for a drop. The flight was pretty rough, and, after a while, George called off the jump because of high winds. As the plane headed back to base, and the pilot pulled off an unusually smooth landing, two of the recruits got airsick. "How come you could take that rough flight, but you couldn't handle the smooth landing?" asked George. "Well, Sir," one trainee explained, "we've always jumped out of planes. We've never actually landed before." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com No Till Veggies Here's what my Daddy did when he planted potatoes. He dug a lil furrow and planted potatoes and covered them ever so lightly with dirt. Then he covered that with a little hay. Then as the plants grew, he covered with more hay. He kept doing that until plants were waist high. Then when potaoes were ready to harvest, he would just turn back the hay and here were the potaoes. No digging. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com There is an even easier way: Toss your cut potatoes, one eye per piece, onto the dirt, cover them with an old bed sheet, and water them. When the plants start to raise the sheet, poke a hole with a knife for each, so that they can wiggle through. The rest of the season just water them normally. From mid summer on you can reach under the sheet and steal clean and firm potatoes. Yukon Gold style potatoes work fine with that method. In the fall let the first frost kill the greenery, cut the stalks with a machete, pull the sheet with the cut stalks, rake and shovel the potatoes into gunny sacks. They are clean. Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ Virtue is its own punishment. --- Aneurin Bevan (1897 - 1960) The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball. --- Doug Larson ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A man goes into a pet shop and tells the owner that he wants to buy a pet that can do everything. The shop owner suggests a faithful dog. The man replies, "Come on, a dog?" The owner says, "How about a cat?" The man replies, "No way! A cat certainly can't do everything. I want a pet that can do everything!" The shop owner thinks for a minute, then says, "I've got it! A centipede!" The man says, "A centipede? I can't imagine a centipede doing everything, but okay. I'll try a centipede." He gets the centipede home and says to the centipede, "Clean the kitchen." Thirty minutes later, he walks into the kitchen and it's immaculate! All the dishes and silverware have been washed, dried, and put away; the countertops cleaned; the appliances sparkling; the floor waxed. He's absolutely amazed. He says to the centipede, "Go clean the living room." Twenty minutes later, he walks into the living room. The carpet has been vacuumed; the furniture cleaned and dusted; the pillows on the sofa plumped; and the plants watered. The man thinks to himself, "This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. This really is a pet that can do everything!" Next he says to the centipede, "Run down to the corner and get me a newspaper." The centipede walks out the door. Ten minutes later, no centipede. Twenty minutes later, no centipede. Thirty minutes later, no centipede. By this point, the man is wondering what's going on. So he goes to the front door, opens it, and there's the centipede sitting right outside. The man says, "Hey! I sent you down to the corner store 45 minutes ago to get me a newspaper. What's the matter?!" The centipede says, "I'm going! I'm going! I'm just putting on my shoes!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ There once was a drunk man who decided to visit Texas. When he arrived on the plane, he felt the seats and said, "Wow, these seats are big!" The person next to him answered, "Everything is big in Texas." When he finally arrived in Texas, he decided to visit a bar. Upon arriving in the bar, he ordered a beer and got a mug placed between his hands. He exclaimed, "Wow these mugs are big!" The bartender replied, "Everything is big in Texas." After a couple of beers, the drunk asked the bartender where the bathroom was located. The bartender replied, "Second door to the right." The drunk man headed for the bathroom, but accidentally tripped over and skipped the second door. Instead, he entered the third door, which lead to the swimming pool and fell into the pool by accident. Scared to death, the drunk man started shouting, "Don't flush, PLEASE, don't flush!" __________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Zena Edwards,18, Llandudno, Wales, Britain Welsh teenager refused to be treated by black doctor after being stabbed in back Zena Edwards, from Llandudno in Wales, told the doctor attempting to clean the cut in her back: ‘You can’t clean it, you are dirty yourself.’ Llandudno magistrates’ court District Judge Gwyn Jones told the 18- year-old: ‘A doctor working in hospital should not have to be subjected to such appalling behaviour.’ The court heard that Edwards had earlier spat in the faces of two police officers and tried to headbutt them while they were carrying out a search at a flat in May. They found her asleep in a bedroom with a stab wound in her back after she had been drinking and taking drugs at a party, the court heard. She lashed out at the officers when they attempted to put her in handcuffs. James Neary, prosecuting, said Detective Constables Gemma Smith and Kelly Taylor-Jones executed the search warrant at a flat in Palace Avenue, Rhyl, on May 6. They were assaulted when they stopped Edwards from getting a glass of water. She was taken by the police to St Asaph police station and then to the emergency department at Glan Clwyd Hospital, where the abuse continued. Edwards was given a 12-month community punishment and ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work at Llandudno Magistrates’ Court It was at the hospital she made the racist remark to the doctor who tried to treat her wound. ‘Other patients were clearly alarmed,’ said Mr Neary. Andy Hutchinson, defending, said that Edwards had been at a party and had somehow been stabbed in the back although she did not know how because she was under the influence of alcohol and drugs. ‘Nobody knows how she sustained the wound,’ he said.

A State Government Employee sits in his office and out of boredom, decides to see what's in his old filing cabinet. He pokes through the contents and comes across an old brass lamp. "This will look nice on my mantelpiece," he decides, and takes it home with him. While polishing the lamp, a genie appears and grants him three wishes. "I wish for an ice cold diet Pepsi right now!" POOF! He gets his Pepsi and drinks it. Now that he can think more clearly, he states his second wish. "I wish to be on an island where beautiful nymphomaniacs reside." POOF! Suddenly he is on an island with gorgeous females eyeing him lustfully. He tells the genie his third and last wish: "I wish I'd never have to work ever again." POOF! He's back in his government office.

She gave examples like Baker, which meant they where a baker for a living, Miller meant that person worked in a flouer mill, and so on.

_____________________________________________________ This lady is giving a party for her granddaughter, and has gone all out. She had a caterer, band, and a hired clown. Just before the party starts, two bums show up looking for a handout. Feeling sorry for the bums, the woman tells them that they can get a meal if they will chop some wood out back. Gratefully, they head to the rear of the house. Guests arrive, and all is going well with the children having a wonderful time. But the clown has not shown up, and finally, the clown calls to report that he is stuck in traffic, and will probably not make the party at all. The woman is very disappointed and unsuccessfully tries to entertain the children herself. She happens to look out the window and sees one of the bums doing cartwheels across the lawn. She watches in awe as he swings from tree branches, does midair flips, and leaps high in the air. She speaks to the other bum and says, "What your friend is doing is absolutely marvellous. I have never seen such a thing. Do you think your friend would consider repeating this performance for the children at the party? I would pay him $50!" The bum replies, "Well, I dunno. Let me ask him. "HEY Neil! FOR $50, WOULD YOU CHOP OFF ANOTHER TOE?" __________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Richard Roggero, 43, Kristi Kennington, 46, Melissa Lazerte, 32, Donald Blount, 35, Kelley Eplin, 25 Child found living in St. Johns County drug house, 5 arrested Five people were arrested Wednesday at a home in St. Johns County after deputies say they found drugs and drug paraphernalia within reach of a child.

Thanks to Ross for this report: European Union on Higher Alert The British 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. The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed boats have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Less Fabric Softener When using fabric softener in the wash, I use a fraction of the amount suggested on the packaging and add water to make up the difference.

The Virginian-Pilot reports Dashawn Webster, 22, was arrested last week after confessing to a federal investigator. The charges against Webster stem from two investigations targeting websites that distributed child pornography. One investigation was led by The International Criminal Police Organization and another was led by Homeland Security Investigations. Investigators recovered a thumb drive from a suspect in a different case that included child porn images that "appeared to be homemade." The pictures were all watermarked with a single screen name and the word "copyright." The same screen name was discovered on a variety of websites dealing in child pornography. Agents were able to link the screen name to an old address of Webster's in Portsmouth, Virginia. A Portsmouth police sergeant went to the address to confirm Webster lived there, and found the man was babysitting two boys. Soon after, an agent served a search warrant at the house. According to WTKR, Webster admitted to producing the watermarked images and said the victim was just two years old when the pictures were taken. Numerous additional images of child pornography were found on Webster's electronic devices. Horrified neighbor, Carolyn Christensen, said the alleged abuse made her "sick." "He never goes anywhere, he's always there, he never comes out," she added. "He steps out of the doorway sometimes to pick up the children." Webster is being held at Western Tidewater Regional Jail.

The bathroom scale manufacturer was very proud of the new model being introduced at the trade fair. "Listen to these features: it's calibrated to one-one-hundredth of a pound; it can measure your height as well, in feet or meters; it gives you a readout via an LED or human-voice simulator; and that's not all..." "Very impressive," interrupted a none-too-slender sales rep for a chain of home furnishings stores, "but before I place an order I'll have to try it out." "Be my guest," said the manufacturer graciously. No sooner had he taken his place on the scale than a loud, very human-sounding voice issued forth: "One at a time, please, one at a time!"

Wendy tried to sell her old car. She was having a lot of problems selling it, because the car had 250,000 miles on it. One day, she told her problem to Paul her good friend. Paul told her, "There is a possibility to make the car easier to sell, but it's not legal." "That doesn't matter," replied Wendy, "if I only can sell the car." "Okay," said Paul. "Here is the address of a friend of mine. He owns a car repair shop. Tell him I sent you and he will turn the counter in your car back to 50,000 miles. Then it should not be a problem to sell your car anymore." The following weekend, Wendy made the trip to the mechanic. About one month after that, Paul asked Wendy, "Did you sell your car?" "No," replied Wendy, "why should I?

At a party celebrating the sale of her recipe to a fancy Charles Street restaurant, an old matron approached Mrs. O'Malley and said, "My dear girl, what is the secret of your soup?" Mrs. O'Malley said, "The secret o' me soup is that I use but two-hundred thirty-nine beans to make it." The woman asked, "Why only two-hundred thirty-nine?" Mrs. O'Malley said, "Because one more would make it too farty."

___________________________________________________ The new Librarian decided that instead of checking out children's books by writing the names of borrowers on the book cards herself, she would have the youngsters sign their own names. She would then tell them they were signing a "Contract" for returning the books on time. Her first customer was a second grader, who looked surprised to see a new Librarian. He brought four books to the desk and shoved them across to the Librarian, giving her his name as he did so. The Librarian pushed the books back and told him to sign them out. The boy laboriously printed his name on each book card and then handed them to her with a look of utter disgust. Before the Librarian could even start her speech he said, scornfully, "That other Librarian we had could write." ___________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A man with a winking problem is applying for a position as a sales representative for a large firm. The interviewer looks over his papers and says, "This is phenomenal. You've graduated from the best schools; your recommendations are wonderful, and your experience is unparalleled. Normally, we'd hire you without a second thought. However, a sales representative has a highly visible position, and we're afraid that your constant winking will scare off potential customers. I'm sorry...we can't hire you." "But wait," he said. "If I take two aspirin, I'll stop winking!" "Really? Great! Show me!" So the applicant reaches into his jacket pocket and begins pulling out all sorts of condoms: red condoms, blue condoms, ribbed condoms, flavored condoms; finally, at the bottom, he finds a packet of aspirin. He tears it open, swallows the pills, and stops winking. "Well," said the interviewer, "that's all well and good, but this is a respectable company, and we will not have our employees womanizing all over the country!" "Womanizing? What do you mean? I'm a happily married man!" "Well then, how do you explain all these condoms?" "Oh, that," he sighed. "Have you ever walked into a pharmacy, winking, and asked for aspirin?" __________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by James Denson, 61, Lake City, Florida Florida man jailed after he reports his illegal gun as stolen A Lake City man was jailed after he reported that his son had stolen his rifle. The problem? The man, James Denson, is a convicted felon who is not allowed to own a rifle, the Lake City Police said in a press release. The police said that Denson, 61, told them that his son had stolen a .22-caliber rifle from his bedroom. When the son was questioned, he told police that his father was lying and was trying to have him falsely arrested. When Denson was told that he was a convicted felon who was not allowed to own a firearm, he changed his story and said he didn't actually possess the gun, police said. Denson also said that he took possession of the rifle when he discovered kids playing with it. He took the rille from them for their own safety, he told police. Denson is charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Tech Support Pits From: Elva Re: Cookies Dear Webby Why are alot of sites insisting that I allow cookies? I am being blocked from sites, even though I paid for access, and others, that are supposedly free, and all I get is rude error messages. I don't want my private information spread by cookies. Is there a way around that? Elva Dear Elva Cookies don't carry private information. They may have, twenty years ago, but nowadays, cookies are a safe way to manage the Internet. For example, if you buy access to a library site, it plants a cookie with your membership number and possibly your chosen member name, and maybe even with the membership number of the person who referred you to the library. When you go to the library, it checks your library cookie, and when it is there, it allows you access to the library and gives a brownie point to the person who referred you. That's all. It's just like a library card. And just like without your library card, you won't get access without your cookie. You would have to dig out your user name and password and log in just like on your first visit. Other cookies, like the ones planted by your bank or telephone company, provide extra security and streamline your access. Instead of having to go through a dozen menus each time you go in there to manage your account or pay bills, the cookie gets you straight to the account that you worked on last. The cookie does not carry your password or any info about what is in your accounts, just the routing information that you need AFTER you have put in your password. Cookies are also used to track referrers. Businesses spend big money to get customers. Let's say, for example, you click on the Breastcancer link, and from there go to the garden cherubs with solar lights. A cookie will tell the garden cherub site that the breast cancer site referred you. For every 1000 referrals they pay the breastcancer site 65 cents or whatever amount they agreed on. Eventually that amounts to the cost of a mammogram. HOWEVER, if you have cookies disabled, then you don't count, and they don't have to pay the breastcancer site. The cookie that the breastcancer site would have planted, would not have had any private information about you. It simply would have told the garden gnome site that "this visitor was referred by the breastcancer site". (By the way, I don't plant cookies and the breastcancer site does not have to pay me. I just carry their ad as a public service.) Most cookies expire and disappear in a while. But while they are carried in your browser, you can read them. You will see that they do not carry any personal information about you. Forget the rumors about cookies spread by some misinformed AOLers twenty years ago, that are still being forwarded. Go ahead and allow cookies. If you use CrapCleaner, take the checkmark off the Cookies. They take very little space and won't slow you down. Have FUN DearWebby
A young woman was so depressed that she decided to end her life by throwing herself into the ocean. She went down to the docks and was about to leap into the frigid water when a handsome young sailor saw her tottering on the edge of the pier crying. He took pity on her and said, "Look, you've got a lot to live for. I'm off to Europe in the morning, and if you like, I can stow you away on my ship. I'll take good care of you and bring you food every day." Moving closer he slipped his arm round her shoulder and added, "I'll keep you happy, and you'll keep me happy". The girl nodded yes. After all, what did she have to lose? That night, the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a lifeboat. From then on every night he brought her three sandwiches and a piece of fruit, and they made passionate love until dawn. Three weeks later, during a routine inspection, she was discovered by the captain. "What are you doing here?" the Captain asked. "I have an arrangement with one of the sailors," she explained. "I get food and trip to Europe, and he's having me." "He sure is, lady," the Captain said. "This is the Staten Island Ferry."

Everybody on earth dies and goes to heaven. God comes and says "I want the men to make two lines. One line for the men that dominated their women on earth and the other line for the men that were whipped by their women. Also, I want all the women to go with St Peter." Said and done, the next time God looks the women are gone and there are two lines. The line of the men that were whipped was 100 miles long, on the line of men that dominated women there was only one man. God got mad and said. "You men should be ashamed of yourselves. I created you in my image, and you were all whipped by your mates. Look at the only one of my sons that stood up and made me proud, Learn from him. "Tell them my son how did you manage to be the only one on that line?" The man said, "I don't know. My wife told me to stand here."

Thanks to Kati for this story: A police officer pulls over a speeding car. The officer says, "I clocked you at 80 miles per hour, sir." The driver says, "Gee, officer I had it on cruise control at 60, perhaps your radar gun needs calibrating." Not looking up from her knitting the wife says: "Now don't be silly dear, you know that this car doesn't have cruise control." As the officer writes out the ticket, the driver looks over at his wife and growls, "Can't you please keep your mouth shut for once?" The wife smiles demurely and says, "You should be thankful your radar detector went off when it did." As the officer makes out the second ticket for the illegal radar detector unit, the man glowers at his wife and says through clenched teeth, "Damit, woman, can't you keep your mouth shut?" The officer frowns and says, "And I notice that you're not wearing your seat belt, sir. That's an automatic $75 fine." The driver says, "Yeah, well, you see officer, I had it on, but took it off when you pulled me over so that I could get my license out of my back pocket." The wife says, "Now, dear, you know very well that you didn't have your seat belt on. You never wear your seat belt when you're driving." And as the police officer is writing out the third ticket the driver turns to his wife and barks, "WHY DON'T YOU PLEASE SHUT UP??" The officer looks over at the woman and asks, "Does your husband always talk to you this way, Ma'am?" "Only when he's been drinking." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com eck Labels For Clothing Care Be sure to check clothing labels for recommended care of the garment.

He became something of a local joke when a newspaper began keeping a record of his predictions and showed that he'd been wrong almost three hundred times in a single year.

One blank on the job application called for the reason for leaving his previous position.

Tech Support Pits From: DJ Re: Compressing pictures Dear Webby hello my friend, is there a way to compress a picture that takes up a whole email page down to about 2"x2" thanks, DJ Dear DJ Compressing does not change the visible size. Compressing keeps the visible size the same, but degrades the picture and throws away color depth pixels and thereby makes the file size smaller. What you need to do is to RESIZE (not compress) the picture size. Open the picture in any graphics or paint program, click on Image, Resize. Then toggle it from pixels to inches, and type in the desired dimensions. That's all there is to it. And save it under a new name, so that you still have the original huge picture. Have FUN DearWebby

Without a moments hesitation, the bride retorted, "Well, I hope you'll love the third one just as if was your own."

Two drunks were in a tavern sitting at the bar and staring into their drinks. One got a curious look on his face and asked, "Hey, Pete! Have you ever seen an ice cube with a hole in it before?" "Yep. I been married to one for fifteen years...." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Testing Your Refrigerator Seal To test the seal of your refrigerator, put a piece of paper on the edge of the rubber gasket and close the door. If the paper can be pulled out easily, the seal may need replacing. Don't get too carried away with that! As long as the paper does not fall, the seal is good enough. If you want to save on the electricity a fridge or freezer uses, clean the condenser grid behind or under the fridge frequently and make sure that there are no dust bunnies impeding air flow. I went a step further and back-set the fridge into the wall. There is no insulation between the fridge and the outside sheating, and a grill allows in fresh outside air into the space under the fridge and exhausts it to the outside through a little chimney above. It always has fresh outside air to cool the condenser grid and except in winter, it pumps the waste heat outside, and not into the kitchen. As you can probably imagine, that saves a very significant amount of electricity. Have FUN!

___________________________________________________ A woman was waiting at an airport one night, With several long hours before her flight. She hunted for a book in the airport shops. Bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop. She was engrossed in her book but happened to see, That the man sitting beside her, as bold as could be, Grabbed a cookie or two from the bag in between, Which she tried to ignore to avoid a scene. So she munched the cookies and watched the clock, As the gutsy cookie thief diminished her stock. She was getting more irritated as the minutes ticked by, Thinking, "If I wasn't so nice, I would blacken his eye." With each cookie she took, he took one too, When only one was left, she wondered what he would do. With a smile on his face, and a nervous laugh, He took the last cookie and broke it in half. He offered her half, as he ate the other, She snatched it from him and thought... ooh,brother. This guy has some nerve and he's also rude, Why he didn't even show any gratitude! She had never known when she had been so galled, And sighed with relief when her flight was called. She gathered her belongings and headed to the gate, Refusing to look back at the thieving ingrate. She boarded the plane, and sank in her seat, Then she sought her book, which was almost complete. As she reached in her baggage, she gasped with surprise, There was her bag of cookies, in front of her eyes. If mine are here, she moaned in despair, The others were his, and he tried to share. Too late to apologize, she realized with grief, That she was the rude one, the ingrate, the thief. ___________________________________________________

Kayla Irizzary was arrested about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday. Moses Lake police said the 19-year-old was a passenger in a car that officers pulled over last week. The driver, Giovanni Powell, 27, was arrested for driving with a suspended license, but officers had no legal reason to detain Irizzary so she was able to leave the scene. While searching the vehicle, however, detectives found a purse containing Irizzary’s ID, a small pistol, heroin and her paperwork from the last time she was released from jail. Irizzary is a convicted felon and ineligible to possess a firearm. According to police, Irizzary then got on the police department’s Facebook page and bragged about getting away, “which we believe is the number one killer of criminal karma that there is,” the department said. After setting up a meeting with Irizzary, using social media, officers were able to arrest her Saturday after a brief foot chase. Irizzary was booked into the Grant County Jail on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of heroin. Both charges were from the original incident. “What social media giveth, social media taketh away: Woman who trolled MLPD back in custody,” police posted on Facebook.

A kind-hearted fellow was walking through Central Park in New York and was astonished to see an old man, fishing rod in hand, fishing over a beautiful bed of red roses. "Tsk Tsk!" said the passerby to himself. "What a sad sight. That poor old man is fishing over a bed of flowers. I'll see if I can help." So the kind fellow walked up to the old man and asked, "What are you doing, my friend?" "Fishin', sir." "Fishin', eh. Well how would you like to come have a drink with me?" The old man stood put his rod away and followed the kind stranger to the corner bar. He ordered a large glass of vodka and a fine cigar. His host, the kind fellow, felt good about helping the old man, and he asked, "Tell me, old friend, how many did you catch today ?" The old fellow took a long drag on the cigar, blew a careful smoke ring and replied, "You are the sixth today, sir...!"
