The e-book version is a lot cheaper, of course. Which version would you recommend? Vi Dear Vi I would recommen the e-book version without the slightest hesitation. With e-books you CAN print them, if you need paper. You can even print just those pages that you want, like indexes or summaries. You can also take screen captures of paragraphs or illustrations and paste those into word processor documents. With e-books you aren't just saving trees and money, you are getting a lot more value.

Little Johnny and his family lived in the country, and as a result seldom had guests. He was eager to help his mother after his father appeared with two dinner guests from the office. When the dinner was nearly over, Little Johnny went to the kitchen and proudly carried in the first piece of apple pie, giving it to his father who passed it to a guest. Little Johnny came in with a second piece of pie and gave it to his father, who again gave it to a guest. This was too much for Little Johnny, who said, "It's no use, Dad. The pieces are all the same size."

Daily tip from Reheat Pizza in a Frying Pan By lalala... [827 Posts, 105 Comments] A great way to reheat leftover pizza is in a frying pan. Place the pizza in the frying pan over medium heat. Slices of pizza in a frying pan Cover loosely with a piece of aluminum foil that is domed in the center so it doesn't stick to the cheese. Frying pan with aluminium foil It can burn quickly so check it every few minutes until it is heated through and is crispy enough for you on the bottom. The result is a crispy crust, instead of the rubbery, soggy crust you get when microwaved.

In answer to his questions, he was told, "Mommy is at a Tupperware party." This explanation satisfied him for only a moment. Puzzled, he asked, "What's a Tupperware party, Dad?" Bob had always given his son honest answers, so he figured a simple explanation would be the best approach. "Well, son," he said, "at a Tupperware party, a bunch of ladies sit around and sell plastic bowls to each other." He nodded, indicating that he understood this curious pastime. Then he burst into laughter. "Come on, Dad," he said. "What is it really?" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ On beautiful deserted islands in the middle of nowhere, the following people are stranded, each group on separate islands: 2 Italian men and 1 Italian woman 2 German men and 1 German woman 2 Greek men and 1 Greek woman 2 English men and 1 English woman 2 Bulgarian men and 1 Bulgarian woman 2 Japanese men and 1 Japanese woman 2 Chinese men and 1 Chinese woman 2 American men and 1 American woman 2 Irish men and 1 Irish woman 2 Canadian men and 1 Canadian woman One month later, on these absolutely stunning deserted islands in the middle of nowhere, the following things have occurred: One Italian man killed the other Italian man for the Italian woman. The two German men have a strict weekly schedule of alternating visits with the German woman. The two Greek men are sleeping with each other and the Greek woman is cleaning and cooking for them. The two English men are waiting for someone to introduce them to the English woman. The two Bulgarian men took one long look at the endless ocean and another long look at the Bulgarian woman and started swimming. The two Japanese men have faxed Tokyo and are awaiting instructions. The two Chinese men have set up a pharmacy/liquor/store/ restaurant/laundry, and have got the woman pregnant in order to supply employees for their store. The two American men are contemplating the virtues of suicide, because the American woman keeps on complaining about her body, the true nature of feminism, how she can do everything they can do, the necessity of fulfillment, the equal division of household chores, how sand and palm trees make her look fat, how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and treated her nicer than they do, and how her relationship with her mother is improving, etc.. The two Irish men divided the island into north and south and set up distilleries. They do not remember if sex is in the picture because it gets sort of foggy after the first few liters of coconut whiskey. But they're satisfied because at least the English aren't having any fun. The Canadians got the Irish and the English women to immigrate to their island and they are making better whisky than the Irish. Beer too! They don't care who gets whom, as long as there is enough beer and whiskey for everybody. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roxanne for identifying the flowers as Purple Loosestrife _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailorz An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kimberly Felder, 45, Ferndale, California California mother arrested for trying to exorcise or kill 11 year old daughter Northern California mother who claimed she was trying to exorcise demons from her daughter has been booked on suspicion of biting, choking and shoving handfuls of sand into the girl’s mouth and eyes on a crowded beach, authorities said. Kimberly Felder, a 45-year-old Ferndale resident, was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, felony child abuse and aggravated mayhem, Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal said in a statement. The ordeal unfolded about 9 a.m. when authorities received a report of a mother attacking a small girl at Centerville Beach County Park near Ferndale, a small city with Victorian-era homes about 20 miles south of Eureka, Calif. The witness told authorities the mother was trying to perform an exorcism. She had stripped the 11-year-old girl naked and attacked her with sand, Honsal said. As Felder viciously hit, bit and choked the girl, Honsal said, a crowd of 10 to 12 people arrived and saw the incident. During the attack, Felder severely bit her daughter’s right ear, authorities said. Resident John Marciel couldn’t stand by and watch the beating, so he stepped in and restrained Felder, Lt. Ken Swithenbank said. As Marciel fought with Felder on the ground, she struck her daughter on the head with a piece of driftwood, authorities said. A sheriff’s deputy later arrived and arrested Felder. As deputies took Felder into custody, Marciel tended to the girl, Swithenbank said. The girl was hospitalized for multiple injuries. She will probably require reconstructive surgery to her ear, he said. It is unclear what led the mother to believe her daughter was possessed and needed an exorcism, Swithenbank said. The incident, he said, was “strange “ and “very disturbing” for deputies. Authorities said if it were not for Marciel’s heroism and swift actions, the girl would have been killed. “He was shook up pretty good,” Swithenbank said. “It’s very heroic what he did.” For his heroism, the lieutenant said, sheriff’s officials have requested that Marciel be recognized with the Red Cross Lifesaver Award. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Frank Re: Zeus browser hijacker Dear Webby, Was reading an article on Newsweek page about WWii artifacts found in South American and the following appeared while reading.

It is going to take some time for me to attempt to sort this out since I'm older than you and not very computer literate. I'm truly glad to know you have my back on many occasions. Perhaps this will provide insight for others having problem also. Peace and Blessings Frank Frank Subject: Zeus Virus This message was sent in reference to Case #: 1388130. ----------------- JUN 21, 2017 | 07:08AM PDT Maurice replied: Hello Frank, Welcome to Malwarebytes support, my name is Maurice and I’ll be assisting you today. This scam page is using a multitude of false claims to get you freaked out so that you call the scammer. None of this is true. Thanks for relaying the phone number. This type of scam display is not any actual “infection”. It is a scam “lure”. “zeus” is a fake, lure. It is a displayed fake page that shows on a web browser. It can be got rid of by using a few keyboard key-presses, or using Task Manager, resetting the browser, or by powering off the machine. Waiting a bit, then power back up and allow Windows to reload. Each customer should also beef up each web browser, do some tweaks, and ad a ad block. Getting rid of bogus screen (s): You can easily use keyboard keypress shortcuts to get rid of the false pages displayed. ( see below). What you had experienced is NOT an infection. Not a virus; nor a malware. It is a scam / fake tech support scheme. Contrary to what one may have thought, it does not “lock” the machine. You can still press the Windows-key on keyboard to get the Windows menu. You can use a variety of Windows Keyboard shortcuts to get around to other choices for remedy. When this fake is in the foreground and in a web browser, there are many ways to get it off the screen. I would suggest to do a few keyboard presses to get rid of the windows on-screen. Press and hold ALT-key on keyboard and then tap the F4 function key a to get the foreground windows closed and done away with. ( repeat use of ALT + F4 sequence). ALT + F4 is especially helpful against the smaller window ( if any) that is up in front. ALT + HOME key on the keyboard will put your browser page back onto your prior choice for Home page. That easily deals with the bigger full page displayed. Then while still in the web browser, press and hold SHIFT + CTRL + DELete keys to start the process to delete all browser cache & history. Another way is to press and hold CTRL key on keyboard and then tap W key. CTRL + W That should close the Tab page of the web browser. You can repeat as needed. Another way: is to open a new Tab by using CTRL +T ( that opens a new tab). Then you can use your mouse go to the rogue tab & then click the X control on the upper right top of the rogue tab-window). Have patience when you try this. And, there is always the ability to end the web-browser program thru using Windows’ Task Manager applet. Click the Start button and type: taskmgr.exe and then press Enter. In the processes tab, find the process for whichever browser you are running: iexplore.exe, firefox.exe, chrome.exe, MicrosoftEdge.exe, MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe and then click End Process or Terminate. Look at the following Malwarebytes Blog article and scroll down to the section marked Clear your browser’s cache and do that for each of your web browser programs. RESET web browser program: Which one of the web browsers is this on ? Reset the browser and make real sure it does not re-open same page as last session.

In moments of temptation," she said, "ask yourself just one question: Is an hour of pleasure worth a lifetime of shame?"

Daily tip from Gluten Free Peach Cobbler By Litter Gitter [220 Posts, 692 Comments] I experimented making a gluten free Peach cobbler by using gluten free bisquick. It turned out irresistible. I tasted it when it came out of the oven and couldn't keep my spoon out of it while cooking dinner. After dinner, I just had to have another piece. My husband wanted a second helping also. He said all it needed was a scoop of ice cream on top. When we started doing the dishes, he looked at what was left of the peach cobbler and asked me, "Did you eat that much?" I couldn't deny it. Ingredients: 1/4 cup butter 1 cup Gluten Free Bisquick 1 cup sugar 1/2 tsp vanilla 2 eggs 1 15 ounce can sliced peaches Steps: Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Place butter in 8x8 inch Pyrex dish. Place in oven to melt. Drain juice from the peaches. Mix eggs, sugar and vanilla together. Add peach juice and mix. Add bisquick and mix well. Pour the batter into hot melted butter. Drop spoonfuls of peaches evenly onto the batter. Bake 35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream while warm. Enjoy!

____________________________________________________ A woman in Arkansas brought her baby in to see the doctor, and he determined right away the baby had an ear ache. He wrote a prescription for ear drops. In the directions he wrote, "Put two drops in right ear every four hours" and he abbreviated "right" as an R with a circle around it. Several days passed, and the woman returned with her baby, complaining that the baby still had an earache, and his little behind was getting really greasy with all those drops of oil. The doctor looked at the bottle of ear drops and sure enough, the pharmacist had typed the following instructions on the label: "Put two drops in R ear every four hours."

One of the special treats that year was the lighting of the fireworks (Roman candles, bottle rockets, missile batteries, etc.) they had bought out of state. (because they are illegal in their state, of course!) Just before they were to arrive, a cousin calls, saying their neighbor's plans had just fallen through, and could they bring them along to the picnic - they even had extra food to bring. "Sure, the more the merrier!" Upon arrival and meeting of their cousin's neighbor, it is discovered that he's a police officer. The father turns as innocently as he can to Johnny, and whispers to him to grab the paper bag of fireworks sitting in the kitchen and hide them somewhere quickly. Johnny disappears, and the father changes the topic to food for the day. The family had brought some chicken to grill, so the father tells then the gas grill is all set to use out back - just turn on the gas and push the ignition button with the lid still closed. They head out the back, as Johnny comes back in through the front door. The father hurries to him and says "Whew, that was close! That man's a police officer, and he almost saw the fireworks. Did you hide them real well?" "Oh, yes! Nobody will ever think to look in the grill!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ >From Rev Garth After finishing an out-of-town errand, I discovered that my car wouldn't start because it was out of gas. A passer-by told me there was a service station a half mile away, so I took a gas can from the trunk and trudged the distance in the sweltering sun. The attendant filled my two gallon can, and I lugged it back and poured the gas into the tank. But when I tried to unlock the car door, it wouldn't open. Just then, I noticed an identical old car parked a short distance away. That was my car. I had filled a stranger's gas tank. Wearily I walked back to the station. The attendant suggested helpfully, "You know, instead of walking back and forth to fill the tank from the can, you could put a couple of gallons in the tank and then drive the car here." ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rosalyn Faniel, 34, Boynton Beach, Floriduh Florida toddler pulls loaded gun from toy box during child welfare check A Boynton Beach toddler pulled a loaded gun out of his toy box as police were investigating his home for possible child neglect, the Palm Beach Post reports. Police say the Florida Department of Children services was called to the home to speak to the child’s mother, Rosalyn Faniel, 34, about child neglect allegations and complaints they received about a man selling drugs out of the home. As Faniel was being questioned by a police officer and a DCF worker, the cop observed her 3-year-old child pull a loaded black 9mm semi-automatic pistol out of his “my little learning” toy box and start handling it. Officers immediately took the gun from the child. Police say the gun was loaded with a bullet in the chamber and the safety off. Officers searched the house for other potential hazards and found a box of 9mm ammunition sitting on top of a refrigerator in plain sight next to a black scale and pink makeup bag carrying six bags of white/pink powder weighing .6 grams in total. The powder tested positive for `Oxycodone, says the report. Faniel was taken into custody and charged with child neglect Tuesday. She was released from the Palm Beach County Jail Wednesday on a $3,000 bond, according to court records. The Palm Beach Post says Faniel also faces charges for failure to appear in court and violating release conditions, adding an extra $500 to her bond. She is due back in court on July 13. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ella Re: Phone not showing who is calling Dear Webby, I was told that my new phone would show me who is calling, but it never does, but it shows me who called while I was away. I know it's probably something stupid simple, so I am afraid to ask anybody around here because they will laugh about it for years. Thanks Ella Dear Ella You are just too efficient for your own good. Don't pounce on the phone like a desperate spinster. Relax, compose yourself, and wait for the second ring. Just before the second ring, the calling number will appear. If it is a telemarketer, lift the phone a couple of inches, and bash the rubber duckie, that you have sitting beside the phone, with your other hand, before letting the phone clatter down on it's cradle.

I was elated when he called me at work with the news of my grandchild's birth. I took down all the statistics and turned to relate it all to my co-workers. "I'm a grandmother!" I declared. "It's a baby girl, and she weighs five pounds." "When was she born?" someone asked. Recalling the date my son told me, I stopped, looked at the calendar, and said in amazement, "Tomorrow!" ___________________________________________________

>From Kati: The husband and wife go to a counselor after 15 years of marriage. The counselor asks them what the problem is and the wife goes into a tirade listing every problem they have ever had in the 15 years they've been married. She goes on and on and on. Finally, the counselor gets up, goes around the desk, embraces the woman and kisses her passionately. The woman shuts up and sits quietly in a daze. The counselor turns to the husband and says "That is what your wife needs at least three times a week. Can you do that?" The husband thinks for a moment and replies, "Well, I can get her here Monday and Wednesday, but Friday I work day shift. "

____________________________________________________ This is an actual conversation I over-heard at the cross walk. A young woman was talking with an older woman, apparently her mother. "I haven't slept in three days," she complained. "The baby is teething and he's up all night crying." "Why don't you just dip a finger into a thimble-full of brandy and rub it on his gums? That will numb them up and put him right to sleep." answered mom. "I can't give the baby alcohol! Lord knows what that will do to him." "Well, it never hurt you any." The look on her face was priceless.

Daily tip from Guide Growing Feverfew By ShirleyE [182 Posts, 107 Comments] Feverfew is a type of chrysanthemum and spreads like wildfire in our garden and we have to weed some of it out, but it is a very pretty plant. It is also medicinal, containing salicylic acid (the stuff aspirin is made of) and therefore said to be good for headaches. Not that I am sure I would take it because the salicylic acid makes it taste exceedingly bitter. Maybe best keep to manufactured aspirin so you know the dose you are taking.

Having forgotten to pack a swimming suit, he chose to skinny dip. After some delightful minutes of cool swimming, a pair of middle-aged ladies walked onto the shore in his direction.

He felt awkward and wanted to move. Then one of the ladies said: "You know, I have a special gift, I can read minds." "Impossible," said the embarrassed pastor. "You can't really know what I think!" She said: "Yes, I do know. Right now I bet you think that the bucket you're holding has a bottom." ___________________________________________________

Daily tip from Wine Bottle To Water Plants By Trina Sudhoff [9 Posts, 10 Comments] My indoor plants need frequent watering and often get wilty before I get a chance to water them. I found a great way to keep them more hydrated and water less often wine! Well, wine bottles that is (or any empty bottle with a narrow neck). Just fill an empty bottle with water, dig a little hole in the soil of your potted plant, and quickly invert the bottle and press into the soil as firmly and upright as possible. As the soil dries, it wicks the water from the opening and keeps the soil moist until your next feeding. Source: A party at my house with a lot of wine! By ECONOMYSTIMUL8R from Sunny South FL

The study found 48% of respondents weren't sure where chocolate milk came from. Seven percent thought chocolate milk only comes from brown cows. That adds up to about 16.4 million people, more than the population of Ohio. The Washington Post linked the study to past studies that consistently show many Americans have no idea where their food comes from.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Randy Dewayne Vert, 29, Pinson, Alabama Alabama man arrested after low-speed chase in stolen flatbed truck after unable to get out of 1st gear A Pinson man is behind bars after leading Jefferson County sheriff's deputies on a low-speed chase in a stolen delivery truck early Wednesday. It all began just after 4:30 a.m. when deputies responded to the 1200 block of Birchwood Street to investigate a report of a suspicious vehicle sitting in the road with lights on and no one around. They arrived and checked the car. It was not stolen, said Chief Deputy Randy Christian. While checking the car, a citizen informed them that a man had just stolen a Kenworth T-300 flatbed delivery truck nearby. Deputies spotted the truck as it turned on to Huffman Road and attempted to stop the vehicle. The driver later identified as 29-year-old Randy Dewayne Vert refused to stop and continued driving south on Center Point Parkway, Christian said. Vert was apparently unfamiliar with the complexities of a manual transmission, he said, and was unable to get the truck out of first gear. The truck traveled at speeds of 25-30 mph on to I-59 south. Deputies followed the truck along I-59 south to Bush Boulevard where the transmission seized and the truck stopped. Vert was removed from the truck the hard way and arrested. He is charged with first-degree theft of property, reckless endangerment, attempting to elude and resisting arrest. He was booked into the Jefferson County jail shortly before 7 a.m. and remains in lockup with bonds totaling $5,900. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Randall Re: Custom icons Dear Webby, Hope you are in good health with your eyes, but i have a question i know you can help me with, I hope. I have made shortcuts on my desktop for my support groups but the short cuts have the generic picture of Firefox on them. how can i put the actual group picture in the short cut icon? or can it be done at all? again love the jokes and pictures and the help you give out daily.... thanks in advance for the help.. Randall Dear Randall You can make icons easily. 1) Get the pictures ready. 2) Size them to 64 x 64 3) Save them as .BMP, yes BMP. I know, it is a totally obsolete format, but Microsoft wants to be backward compatible all the way back to Windows 1. In those days we only had GIF for low resolution, and BMP for high resolution, and JPG not widely known during the years of development of Windows 1. On 8" by 8" Greenie monitors that was good enough. Save it to an easily findable location. 4) close the picture after saving it, for example group1.BMP 5) Use the file explorer and rename the file to group1.ico 6) Right-click the FF icon for Group1, select Properties 7) Change icon is at the bottom, middle. 8) Browse to the icon you just made, select it, hit APPLY and OK. 9) Don't forget to hit APPLY. That's all there is to it. Do the same for all the other ones. Have FUN! DearWebby
A husband, proving to his wife that women talk more than men, showed her a study which indicated that men use on the average only 15,000 words a day, where as women use 30,000 words a day. She thought about this for awhile and then told her husband that women use twice as many words as men because they have to repeat everything they say. He said, "What?"

Next week I'm going on a long vacation and as much as I love reading the humor, I'm trying to minimise the amount of e-mail waiting for my return, so other then unsubscribing and then re-subscribing, do you have any suggestions? I'm not very versed on computer applications so please be gentle. Thanks! Maria Dear Maria Unsubscribing definitely works, but there is a more elegant solution. Simply make a mailbox and call it HUMOR, then make a filter that filters everything with "Humor:" in the subject line or that is from "" into that mailbox without cluttering up your IN box. That way, if you do have extra time later, you can skim through there and see what arrived while you were on vacation. It will also build you a nice archive of jokes and goofy pictures. Have FUN!

Daily tip from How to Roast a Cheap Cut of Beef By Bobbie [166 Posts, 11 Comments] I found this information very useful and have used it often to prepare a chuck roast and also a round roast. Both cuts of meat are on sale often here in Texas. It doesn't matter how inexpensive the chuck or sirloin roast, if it turns out so tough and flavorless that no one will eat it, it was no bargain at all. But a bad experience doesn't mean you should shy away from those thrifty cuts. It means you need to learn how to prepare even the cheapest cuts of beef so you can expect perfect results every time. The three economy cuts of beef roast are chuck, sirloin and round. The chuck is fattier and somewhat tender, while the round is lean and relatively tough. The sirloin falls somewhere in between. While you can get away with buying cheap meat, you cannot scrimp on the equipment: You'll need a meat thermometer and an oven thermometer (evenIf you trust your oven's temperature gauge) because exact temperatures are the key to the best results. With what you'll save on your meat tab, you'll have more than enough to invest in the thermometers (about $5 each). The following steps are for chuck, sirloin and round cuts of varying size, although 2 to 5 pound roasts are ideal and will produce the best results. Tie the roast with white cotton string at 1-1/2 inch intervals. Tying the roast tightly makes it compact and shaped evenly, promoting even roasting. Season with salt and pepper and place the roast in a roasting pan, uncovered. Place the meat thermometer in the roast so the tip reaches the center of the thickest part. Set the oven thermometer inside the oven close to the pan. Roast at 250 degrees F until the internal temperature of the roast reaches 110 F.. Plan on approximately 25 minutes per pound, but watch the thermometer, not the clock. It will vary according to the shape and density of your roast and the amount of fat. Without removing the roast from the oven, increase the oven temperature to 500 F until the internal temperature reaches 130 F (medium rare). Remove the pan from the oven and allow the meat to rest for 20 minutes. The roast will be succulent, tender, juicy and more flavorful than it would be if you had prepared it using any other cooking method. If you have sufficient roast left over (you'll need about 1 pound to prepare the following to serve six), you will find it even better the second time around served as a wonderful Salad of Cold Roast. To 1 cup of purchased vinaigrette salad dressing, add a dollop of Dijon-style mustard and mix well. Carve the beef into thin slices. Place the slices on a large pie plate or platter, and pour about 3/4 cup dressing over the beef, with a sprinkling of thyme. Allow to marinate for several hours (if you have time), basting several times. Line a serving platter with lettuce leaves that have been tossed with a spoonful or so of the vinaigrette. Mound 2 to 3 cups potato salad in the middle. Place the beef slices around the potatoes, and decorate the platter with such items as tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, black olives, rings of red onions and fresh parsley. By Bobbie G from Rockwall, TX

A Sunday school teacher asked her students to draw a picture of their favorite Old Testament bible story. As she moved around the class, she saw many wonderful drawings being created. Then she came to Little Johnny, who had drawn a man driving an old car. In the back seat were two passengers, both scantily dressed. The teacher said, "It's a lovely picture, Johnny, but which bible story does it tell?" Little Johnny seemed surprised at the question and said, "Well, it says in the bible that God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden in a Fury.

______________________________________________________ Reported by Moe An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lawrence John Ripple, 71, Kansas City, Kansas Husband who robbed bank to escape wife is sentenced to home confinement A 70-year-old man charged with robbing a Kansas City, Kan., bank said he did it because he preferred a jail cell over living with his wife. Lawrence John Ripple is charged in federal court with the Friday afternoon robbery of the Bank of Labor at 756 Minnesota Ave. According to court documents, Ripple handed a teller a note that read, “I have a gun, give me money.” The teller complied. But instead of fleeing, Ripple took the money and then took a seat in the bank lobby, according to the documents. When a bank security guard approached him, Ripple told the guard, “I’m the guy you’re looking for.” The guard took the money from Ripple and held him until police arrived, which wasn’t long, because Kansas City, Kan., police headquarters is on the same block. When he was questioned later by investigators, Ripple told him that he and his wife had argued and he “no longer wanted to be in that situation,” according to the documents. “Ripple wrote out his demand note in front of his wife … and told her he’d rather be in jail than at home,” an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit filed in support of the robbery charge. A remorseful 71-year-old man who robbed a Kansas City, Kan., bank last September and told police he hoped to land in prison to escape his wife told a federal judge Tuesday that heart surgery had left him depressed and unlike himself when he committed the crime. Though Lawrence John Ripple pleaded guilty to bank robbery in January and could have spent up to 37 months in prison, his attorney and federal prosecutors asked a U.S. District Court judge for leniency. That request was supported by the vice president of the bank and the teller whom Ripple frightened, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Sheri Catania. U.S. District Court Judge Carlos Murguia sentenced Ripple on Tuesday to six months of home confinement after public defender Chekasha Ramsey and Catania cited Ripple’s health issues, remorse and unlikeliness to reoffend. Ripple will also serve three years of supervised probation, including 50 hours of community service. He was ordered to pay $227.27 to the bank he robbed — the amount representing the billable hours for bank employees who were sent home on the day of robbery — and $100 to a crime victims fund. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rick Re: Second Hard Drive Dear Webby, I need a second hard drive for my machine.

Daily tip from Japanese Style Fried Chicken (Karaage) A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them. After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight. When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side. When he was close enough, he called out, "Excuse me, where are we?" "This is Heaven, sir," the man answered. "Wow! Would you happen to have some water?" the man asked. "Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up." The man gestured, and the gate began to open. "Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog, "come in, too?" the traveler asked. "I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets." The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog. After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed.. There was no fence. As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book. "Excuse me!" he called to the man. "Do you have any water?" "Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come on in." "How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to the dog. "There should be a bowl by the pump." They went through the gate, and! sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it. The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog. When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree. "What do you call this place?" the traveler asked. "This is Heaven," he answered. "Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "The man down the road said that was Heaven, too." "Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That's hell." "Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?" "No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind."

A honeymoon couple is in the Watergate Hotel in Washington. The bride is concerned "What if the place is still bugged?" The groom says, "I'll look for a bug."He looks behind the drapes, behind the pictures, under the rug "AHA!" Under the rug was a disc with four screws. He gets his Swiss army knife, unscrews the screws, throws them and the disc out the window. The next morning, the hotel manager asks the newlyweds "How was your room? How was the service? How was your stay at the Watergate Hotel?" The groom says, "Why are you asking me all of these questions?" The hotel manager says, "Well, the room under you complained about the chandelier falling on them!"

"My dear Mr. Wilson," she gushed, "fancy meeting you on the bus. Am I glad to see you. Why, you're almost a stranger. My, but I'm tired." The sedate gentleman looked up at the girl.

I just got a new computer about a month ago and since that day when i try to play a video, it plays for about 10 or 15 seconds and then it seems to start clocking and then it starts again and about a minute later it does the same thing. i have tried to change the setup for the video but to no avail....i just don't understand. could it be the speed of my internet connection doing this? any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Randall Dear Randall Yes, that is the speed of your connection. There is nothing you can do on your side. You can try stuttering it through once, then playing it again and hope your computer cached it all and is then playing it from the cache. Forget streaming video like online cooking courses or sermons. The stuttering will ruin them. Consider upgrading your connection to DSL, if you can. If you have neighbors close by, you can set up a wifi and sell them a share for half of your connection cost. They won't get into your computer, but will be able to use your DSL as if they were a family member in the next room. Unless they have kids, who download huge movies, you won't notice any slowdown.

Daily tip from Japanese Style Fried Chicken (Karaage) By attosa [334 Posts, 1,543 Comments] Karaage (pronounced kara-ah-geh) is a super yummy Japanese style fried chicken. It has always been my favourite as far as fried foods. You can have them as an appetizer, but we eat them as one of many little dishes when we make Japanese food. It's delightful with a squeeze of lemon and superfine powdered salt. Total Time: 30 minutes Ingredients: 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into 1 inch chunks 2 Tbsp soy sauce 2 tsp grated fresh ginger 2 Tbsp Mirin or Japanese sake (or any rice wine or dry sherry) 1/4 cup corn or potato starch 1/4 cup all purpose flour oil for frying lemon wedges Steps: In a plastic bag or in a bowl, add chicken, soy sauce, and ginger and toss until chicken is thoroughly coated in marinade. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 8 hours. Heat oil in a large pot or wok over high heat until it reaches 350F. Whisk cornstarch and flour in a bowl. Add cornstarch and flour mixture to chicken pieces until well coated. Carefully add chicken to oil one at a time, making sure not to crowd the pot. Cook in batches, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes each batch. Drain on a paper towel. Serve immediately, garnished with lemon slices and a side of powdered salt. Enjoy! Keep a metal lid handy while the oil is heating, and don't go checking your email in the meantime. Oil fires are harmless if you have a metal lid to put onto the pot, but will destroy your home if you try to use water to put the fire out. Just put the metal lid on the pot, turn off the burner and with electrical stoves, move the pot to a cool area of the stove top. Then go outside for five minutes. Everything will be fine. Any other method to deal with oil fires is stupid and often suicidal. Keep a metal lid handy when using oil for deep frying! I don't want to lose subscribers! Here you can see a brave firefighter demonstrating what happens with different methods of dealing with an oil fire. Have FUN! DearWebby

____________________________________________________ Two little boys in first grade were chosen to be the leads in their first school play. It was to be a Shakespearean play. The first boy was to say "My fair maiden... I have come to snatch a kiss and fill your soul with hope." The second little boy was to reply by saying, "Hark, a pistol shot." Well, on opening night in the school auditorium, the two little boys were a bit nervous, knowing that all the seats were going to be filled with grown ups. The teacher told them to take their places on the stage and to remember to speak very loud as soon as the curtain goes up. The curtain rose and looking out upon the audience the two boys were terrified. They stood there staring out at the audience, frozen. So the teacher whispered for them to begin. The first boy yelled out these unforgettable words: "My fair maiden... I have come to kiss your snatch!! And fill your hole with soap." The second boy yelled..."Hark! A shistol pot! A postle shidd! A shiddle pot!" He turned and while fleeing the stage screamed: "AAAAARGH! I never wanted to be in this stupid play anyway!." The audience was howling.

A Minnesota man is accused of abusing his 2-month-old daughter, including rubbing hot sauce and cayenne pepper in her eyes and blocking her airway until she turned blue, the Duluth News Tribune reports. Shawn Michael Foltz, 31, of Moorhead, was charged Friday with neglect of a child, malicious punishment of a child and two counts of third-degree assault. A criminal complaint obtained by the newspaper alleges Foltz also snapped his daughter with a towel, burned her with hot water and threw fireworks in her face. The abuse happened from about April 10 until May 30, according to the complaint. Authorities learned of the abuse after the child's mother brought her to the hospital with visible injuries. When interviewed by police, Foltz admitted to some of the abuse, the newspaper reports, and also said he would think about ways to harm the baby while he was at work.

Daily tip from Steamed Fiddleheads By l_rambou [13 Posts, 2 Comments] Fiddleheads are a fern that are harvested as a vegetable. They are full of vitamin A and C as well as a good source of fibre and omega 3 fatty acids. They are a spring time vegetable that taste very similar to asparagus. I am steaming these but fiddleheads can also be used in soup, salad and pastas. They are usually available fresh at the local markets or they can be found in the frozen food section in most grocery stores. You can also harvest your own. They grow along the river edge in some areas. Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes Yield: 3-4 Ingredients: 1 lb fresh fiddleheads 6 - 8 cups water salt and pepper lemon butter Steps: Cut of the ends off of fiddleheads. Rinse well under cold water. Put fiddleheads in colander, and place over a pot of water. Cover and bring the water to a boil. Steam the fiddleheads for 20 minutes or until they are cooked to your liking. Add butter, salt and pepper and a squirt of lemon juice if you wish. Serve immediately. Steamed Fiddleheads and tiny potatoes make a nice side dish beside fish on a canoe trip. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Amanda Hawkins, 19, Kerrsville, Texas Texas toddlers die after teenage mom intentionally left them in car for 15 hours Two toddlers are dead after authorities in Texas say their mother intentionally left them inside of a car for more than 15 hours as she hung out with friends on Tuesday night. Amanda Hawkins, 19, was arrested on two counts of abandoning or endangering a child following the tragedy involving her young daughters, the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office announced Friday. Sisters Brynn Hawkins, 1, and Addyson Overgard-Eddy, 2, were initially described as in “grave” condition after taken to a hospital in Kerrsville by their mother and a 16-year-old boy on Wednesday. There, their mother told hospital staff that the girls collapsed after smelling flowers at a lake, Sheriff W.R. “Rusty” Hierholzer said in a release. “They thought maybe they got into something poisonous,” Hierholzer recalled the mom’s story to Fox San Antonio. He said the story, however, quickly started to fall apart. An investigation by the police and child protective services found that Hawkins had intentionally left the girls overnight in her car while at a friend’s. Around noon the next day she found them unresponsive in the car, Hierholzer said. “Some of the witnesses said that they could hear the kids crying outside and told her to bring them in but she didn’t want to,” he told KENS 5. Instead of immediately seeking help, Hierholzer said the mom bathed them and redressed them. She allegedly told authorities that she didn’t want to take them to the hospital “because she didn’t want to get into trouble.” According to Fox San Antonio, someone talked her into taking them to a hospital. Around 5 p.m. the next day, they were taken off ventilator systems and died, Fox San Antonio reported. An autopsies of the bodies are currently underway. “This is by far the most horrific case of child endangerment that I have seen in the 37 years that I have been in law enforcement,” Hierholzer said in his statement. Hierholzer said charges against the girls’ mother may be upgraded because of their deaths. It will be up to a grand jury to decide. The 16-year-old boy may also face charges. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rhonda Re: Psychics on the net Dear Webby, I have often wondered how those psychics that offer their services via email can do their readings over the Internet.

Sarah and Dick were having dinner with a couple they'd not seen for several years. Each couple tried to re- capture knowledge of the other by recounting their histories. "And soon after we were married," Sarah began, "we were blessed with a marvelous, chubby creature with cute bow legs and no teeth." "You had a baby, I presume," said the other husband. "Nope," Dick broke in, "Sarah's mother came to live with us."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Erin McAuliffe, 25, Rocky Mount, North Carolina Math teacher, 25, jailed after her colleagues tipped off cops about her romping with THREE teenage pupils McAuliffe has been sacked from Rocky Mount Preparatory School in North Carolina The investigation was launched after admin staff at her school tipped off cops about alleged misconduct involving the maths tutor. All the reported romps with the three boys two 17, one 16 took place away from school, police said. McAuliffe has been charged with three counts of sexual activity with a student and one of indecent liberties with a minor. She has been sacked from Rocky Mount Preparatory, North Carolina, where she had worked since last August. Her bosses said: "We have been fully cooperative with local law enforcement during the course of their handling of this matter." McAuliffe is being held at Carteret County Jail after she was taken into custody on Thursday. She is due in court on Monday. The Rocky Mount job was the first time McAuliffe worked as a teacher full-time, according to her Linkedin profile. She also offered "after-school tutoring to help struggling students improve their critical thinking and problem-solving skills." McAuliffe also worked to "develop alternate enrichment activities and modifications in student programs to increase student understanding." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Brian Re: Light / Flash placement Dear Webby, I was picked (on) to take the volunteer award pictures. I remember that you said to avoid flash if at all possible, but I don't remember what you said about where to place lights. The overhead lights are pretty good and I have room to place hat racks with quartz construction lights on both sides of me. What do you suggest? Brian Put all lights to one side of you. Otherwise you kill contrast. An outstretched arms length or a bit more distance is best. The height of the lights should be a hands width higher than their heads for young people, and about waist high for older people. Low lighting makes double-chins disappear and is generally more flattering to older people. Have FUN! DearWebby

____________________________________________________ >From Edna Dear Webby, can you please try to find that old bricklayer's accident report again? You haven't told that one for five years at least, and I can't find it any more. Thanks Edna No Problem, Edna. I have sent that around since the days when I did it via fax, before the internet. Here it is: I am writing in response to your request for additional information. In block number 3 in the Accident Report Form I put "Lost Presence-of-Mind" as the cause of my accident. You asked in your letter that I should explain more fully, and I trust the following details will be sufficient. I am a bricklayer, by trade. On the day of the accident I was working alone on the roof of a new 6 story building. When I completed my work, I discovered I had about 500 pounds of bricks left over. Rather than carry them down by hand, I decided to lower them down in a barrel, using a pully, which fortunately was attached to the building at the 6th floor. Securing the rope at ground level, I went up to the roof, swung the barrel out, and loaded the bricks into it. Then I went to the ground floor, untied the rope, holding it tightly to ensure a slow decent of the 500 pounds of bricks. You will note in block number 3 of the Accident Reporting Form, that I weigh 145 pounds. Due to my surprise at being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence-of-mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a high rate up the side of the building. In the vicinity of the 3rd floor, I met the barrel coming down--this explains the fractured skull and broken collar bone. Slowed, only so slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stopping until the fingers of my hand were 2 knuckles deep into the pully. Fortunately, by this time I had regained my presence-of-mind, and was able to hold tightly to the rope inspite of my increasing pain. At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the ground and the bottem fell out of the barrel. Devoid of the weight of the bricks, the barrel now weighed approximately 50 pounds. I refer you again to my weight in block number 3, and as you might imagine--I began a rapid decent down the side of the building. In the vicinity of the 3rd floor, yes, I met the barrel coming up, this accounts for the 2 fractured ankles, and the lacerations on my legs and lower body. The encounter with the barrel slowed me enough to lessen my injuries when I fell onto the pile of bricks, and fortunately, only 3 vertebrae were cracked. I am sorry to report, however, that as I lay there on the pile of bricks, in pain, unable to stand, and watching the empty barrel 6 stories above me, I again lost my presence-of-mind, and let go of the rope. The empty barrel weighed more than the rope--so it came down on me and broke both my legs. I trust I have furnished you the information you require as to how this accident occurred.

Darren Fagan's sickening attack left the toddler with "life- changing" brain injuries, Belfast Crown Court heard. The court was told how Fagan, 29, confessed to a probation officer he "punched the child to her head as she would not stop crying" while he was trying to enjoy the TV talent show with his partner the child's mother. The judge heard at the time of the assault on October 19, 2014, the young victim was aged two years and four months. At that point, her mother, who was separated from the child's father, had met Fagan about "eight to 10 times". After the child was put to bed in her home in Bessbrook, Co Armagh, Northern Ireland she became unsettled prompting the mother to go and check on her. Deciding to fetch her some medicine from the kitchen she said she noticed that Fagan was no longer in the living room. As she went upstairs, the mother alleged that her daughter "stopped crying" and she heard a "sudden noise like a thud". A prosecution barrister told the court: "She says that within three seconds of hearing the thud she was in the room and saw the defendant standing up, crouched over her daughter's bed. "She noticed a large lump on the left side of her head." The barrister added: "She shouted at him: 'Oh my God, you've hit her!' "And the defendant replied: "No, it's not what it looks like." Doctors discovered that the toddler had sustained severe head injuries, including multiple fractures and a brain haemorrhage. A judge at Belfast Crown Court branded his claim the child had struck her head when her mother fell carrying her down the stairs as "cowardly, vindictive and shameful". The court heard that Fagan, formerly of Portadown, Co Armagh had an "extensive criminal record" including convictions for violence. One of those convictions was for assaulting the 20-month-old child of a previous partner. Fagan pleaded guilty to a single charge of causing grievous bodily harm with intent. A charge of attempted murder was left on file. He was also handed an extended custodial sentence of three years "for the protection of the public". ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Amanda Re: Wireless Network Dear Webby, We had to move because of the flood and will be in a rented house for some time. We need to connect a home network for my two girls and one for hubby and one for me. It's an older house and there is no cabling like we have in our house. What do you suggest? Thanks Amanda Dear Amanda Getting cabling installed could be very expensive. Your best bet is to get a wireless router, if your router does not have those telltale little antennas on it. Most computers nowadays have wireless capability. If yours doesn't, get a USB wireless Network card for the machines that don't have wireless. After that, it's just a matter of clicking on the network icon in the bottom right corner, and stepping through the setup. It's not difficult, but depending on your ISP, can be a bit tedious. If necessary, call your ISP's support, and they will step you through the setup. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Homemade Wasp Repellent By Jill Kayser [1 Post] Wasps seem to hate warm soapy water. I attached a sprayer to my hose with simple dish soap in it. I applied some several times during the day and have successfully deterred a large nest that was visible and inside my covered porch structure. I have animals and plants and was reluctant to use a bunch of wasp spray. ____________________________________________________

During the last session of our teaching workshop, participants were asked to state their personal goals for the immediate future. One teacher vowed to update photo albums, another to lose weight. The goal that got the most response, however, was given by a slightly out-of-shape kindergarten teacher. "I resolve to exercise until I can complete a 20-minute workout in less than an hour," she said.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Leland Foster, 27, Ada, Oklahoma Man Shot Dead After Seen Trying To Drown Babies In Tub and menacing their mother with a knife An Oklahoma man was shot dead by a neighbor while trying to drown his 3-month-old twins in a bathtub on Friday, authorities said. A 12-year-old girl, who was able to escape the home in Ada, alerted the neighbor to the horrific scene inside, prompting him to enter with a handgun, News 9 reported. The neighbor told police he saw 27-year-old Leland Foster holding the babies under water while threatening their mother with a knife. The neighbor, identified as Cash Freeman, responded by shooting Foster twice in his back, killing him. The infants were taken to a hospital and released on Saturday, KXII reported. It's awful because I've held the babies and, like, I've played with them and I just gave them clothes yesterday, neighbor Summer Pierce told KFOR News. Freeman, speaking to KFOR off camera, said he was only trying to save the babies and expressed concern that he may be in trouble. The district attorney's office will ultimately determine whether charges are warranted. Foster had a history of violence, criminal records show. In 2011 he was charged with arson and domestic violence by strangulation in the first degree after being accused of choking his ex-girlfriend and setting her clothes on fire inside an apartment. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Roberta Re: Is E-Bay safe? Dear Webby, I am fairly new to the Internet and have some questions about buying stuff from e-bay. Have you ever bought anything from there? How safe is it? Roberta Dear Roberta Yes, I have bought many things via ebay, from software to electronics. I have always been happy with my purchases. It's quite safe to buy stuff via ebay. They are a huge company and can't afford to let any crooks giving them a bad name. If somebody tries something crooked, they jump on them with both feet. Here are some tricks to make your shopping there easier: 1) Get a PayPal account and an ebay account. 2) If you want a certain item, check with to see how much it is in the stores. 3) Decide how much you are willing to budget for that item. 4) Put that amount into your Automatic Maximum Bid, but leave the automatic bidding turned off. 5) Bid a small amount to get into the action. 6) Watch the bidding but just quietly observe until a few minutes before closing of that item. Then turn the automatic bidding on. It will top all other bids with the incremental amount that you have chosen, but stay within your set maximum amount. As long as you do #2 and #4, you won't get carried away with auction fever and spend too much. Always pay for what you won immediately. Most sellers will reciprocate and ship just as promptly. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Growing Sunflowers in Containers By EllenB [846 Posts, 1 Comment] Sunflowers do great in containers. In fact, container gardening has gotten so popular in the past few years that there are now literally dozens of varieties of sunflowers available that have been developed specifically for growing in containers (e.g. 'Big Smile', 'Italian White', 'Music Box', 'Elite Sun', etc.). Almost any variety can be grown successfully in containers, as long as you meet its growing conditions and provide it with a big enough pot. The really tall or mammoth varieties will likely need staking to remain upright in pots. Plant seeds in full sun, using a light potting soil or soil- less mix. Plant the seeds to a depth of 1 inch (6 inches apart) and expect to see them germinate quickly. Days to maturity will vary according to each variety. Seedlings of regular varieties will need to be thinned to 12 to 18 inches and given plenty of room to grow and spread out. Dwarf varieties can be packed in a little more closely together, but still need to be spaced at least 4 to 5 inches apart. Sunflower roots are quite large and like to spread out. Mammoth varieties grow best in half barrels or containers that are at least 6 to 18 inches deep and 12 inches wide. Smaller containers will keep plants from reaching their full growth potential. Sunflowers grown in containers need to be watered daily and even more frequently during really hot weather. Feed them a 1/2 strength water-soluble fertilizer every other week or so to support big blooms, and mulch around the tops of the containers to help conserve moisture. ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Betty for the seasonal favorite Chili Contest: *Note: Please take time to read this slowly. If you pay attention to the first two judges, the reaction of the third judge is even better! For those of you who have lived in Texas, you know how true this is. They actually have a Chili Cook-off about the time the Rodeo comes to town. It takes up a major portion of the parking lot at the Astrodome. The notes are from an inexperienced Chili taster named Frank, who was visiting Texas from the East Coast: Frank: "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The Judge #3 called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking for directions to the Budweiser truck, when the call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted." Here are the scorecards from the event: Chili # 1 (Mike's Maniac Mobster Monster Chili) Judge # 1 -- A little too heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick. Judge # 2 -- Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild. Judge # 3 -- (Frank) Holy shit, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy. Chili # 2 (Arthur's Afterburner Chili) Judge # 1 -- Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight jalapeno tang. Judge # 2 -- Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously. Judge # 3 -- Keep this out of the reach of children. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face. Chili # 3 (Fred's Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili) Judge # 1 -- Excellent firehouse chili. Great kick. Needs more beans. Judge # 2 -- A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers. Judge # 3 -- Call the EPA. I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now. Get me more beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back, now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I'm getting shit-faced from all of the beer! Chili # 4 (Bubba's Black Magic) Judge # 1 -- Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing. Judge # 2 -- Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili. Judge # 3 -- I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Is it possible to burn out taste buds? Sally, the barmaid was standing behind me with fresh refills. That 300-lb bitch is starting to look HOT... just like this nuclear waste I'm eating! Is chili an aphrodisiac? Chili # 5 (Linda's Legal Lip Remover) Judge # 1 -- Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive. Judge # 2 -- Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement. Judge # 3 -- My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off. It really pisses me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming. Screw those rednecks. Chili # 6 (Vera's Very Vegetarian Variety) Judge # 1 -- Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spices and peppers. Judge # 2 -- The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb. Judge #3-- I shit myself when I farted and I'm worried it will eat through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except that Sally. She must be kinkier than I thought. Can't feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my ass with a snow cone. Chili # 7 (Susan's Screaming Sensation Chili) Judge # 1 -- A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers. Judge # 2 -- Ho hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. I should take note that I am worried about Judge #3. He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is cursing uncontrollably. Judge # 3 -- You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn't feel a thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava-like shit to match my shirt. At least during the autopsy, they'll know what killed me. I've decided to stop breathing, it's too painful. Screw it; I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach. Chili # 8 (Tommy's Toe-Nail Curling Chili) Judge # 1 -- The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence. Judge # 2 -- This final entry is a good, balanced chili. Neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge # 3 passed out, fell over and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself. Not sure if he's going to make it. Poor dude, wonder how he'd have reacted to really hot chili.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by DUH? Abby Hart, 33, St. Johns Florida St. Johns County woman passed out in running Jeep A St. Johns woman was found passed out in a Jeep -- with the windows up and her foot on the brake, a St. Johns County Sheriff's report said. Abby Hart, 33, was charged with DUI shortly after being found around noon on Tuesday. The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office received a report that a 2016 Jeep Laredo was driving erratically on Valley Ridge Parkway near Nocatee. Hart's Jeep was followed by a deputy and later found sitting in the left turn lane on U.S. 1 to Race Track Road. The Jeep had not moved despite several green lights, the report said. Deputies said they were forced to wedge a patrol car in front of the Jeep to prevent Hart from waking up and possibly causing a crash by driving off. Hart did wake up, deputies said, and her Jeep moved forward and struck a patrol car. Hart had a Sutter Home Pinot Grigio wine bottle between her legs, the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said, and several empty bottles in the front seat. When Hart was asked where she was going, she said she was going home and that the police needed to let her go, the report said. She also attempted to go back to sleep while in the car, police said. Hart refused to perform field sobriety tests and refused to take a breath test, police said. Hart was held overnight in the St. Johns County Jail and was released early Wednesday on $1,000 bail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Janina Re: Forwards Dear Webby, I imagine you get this question now and then but I would like to ask you anyway.... those silly "forwards" we get that say .....

Daily tip from Growing Peppers in Containers By Duane De Vries [1 Post, 59 Comments] I'm in West Michigan, zone 5 I think. I have very good success using what is referred to as Self Watering Containers. I use 5 gallon food grade plastic buckets that I get from a pizza shop. If you are not familiar with Self Watering Containers they are a container with a false bottom about 3 inches or so from the real bottom. Cut an opening in this false bottom and fasten a plastic jar that has holes int it. When you fill the container with your potting soil, fill this first, then the rest of the container. This will act as a wick to draw up water. I put a length of tubing (hose or whatever) through the false bottom so it extends out the top for easy access. Drill an overflow hole in the bucket about a half inch or so below the false bottom. Then when adding water through the tube, if you add too much, it will drain out. This method allows the plants to draw water as needed. I have successfully grown regular tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, a variety of peppers (green bell, hot peppers) in these. They are spread about on my deck as my arthritis prevents me from the old style of garden. I'm very pleased with the results.

Seven materials that may change our lives forever.
One cold and rainy day, a French tourist in Scotland decided to find out if the natives were as tight as he had heard. He stopped at a farm cottage, told the farmer's wife he was freezing to death, and was invited to come in and warm himself at the hearth. Once inside the house, he complained of being thirsty. The woman handed him an enormous white crockery mug filled with milk. After taking a big swig, the guest exclaimed, "This is sweet and fresh ... you are most generous!" She replied modestly, "It's nothing. My family wouldn't drink that milk because we found a dead rat in it." Sick to his stomach, the Frenchman clapped both hands over his mouth, allowing the huge mug to fall to the floor and shatter on the stone floor. The Scotswoman grabbed her broom, raised it high in the air, brought it down on the visitor's head, and hollered, "Get out, you ungrateful pig! I take you in my home, I let you share my fire, I give you milk to drink ... and now you repay my kindness by breaking the children's potty chair!"

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Dianne, who used to have a trucking company, for this story: Truck driving in 1962 Back about 1962 when I had just started driving tank trucks, me and my instructor each drove separate trucks. One night as we were returning to our delivery area, we were hauling road oil, we stopped for coffee at an old truck stop along old route 66 in south central Illinois. As we drank our coffee outside the restaurant, two guys came along with a large male raccoon. My instructor asked what they were going to with it and they said "we don't know" My buddy asked them:"Do you want to see something funny?" They said sure, so my buddy gets an old gym bag out of his truck, dumps his stuff out of it, borrows a pair of gloves and stuffs that mad raccoon into the bag and zips it shut. The next move was to take the bag set it alongside the main highway and run back to the station parking lot. Just as planned, an old turquoise Plaza Plymouth screeches to a stop, a long arm reaches out and snags the bag. Off they go with a cloud of blue smoke following them. About the time the car gets to sixty, more blue smoke from sliding tires, the doors fly open and everybody bails out and they are looking back. Pretty soon that nasty raccoon comes ambling out of the car, and everybody in the parking lot is on the ground laughing. Well worth the loss of an old gym bag.

How to change watch batteries 

Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, June 8

It was time to replace the battery in my watch. That used to
be no problem. I used to just go to Walmart, buy the battery
and flirt the lady into changing it for me.

Well, times have changed. Watch batteries now are $6.27, and
there are signs there that the staff won't change the
batteries for you.

It's actually quite easy if you have good sight or a
magnifying glass or sheet. More in the tech support pits.

Have Fun!

What he didn’t expect was that the police were already outside with a search warrant, and they were coming in (video below.) 22-year-old Breon Hollings can be seen counting money in a Facebook Live video and repeatedly exclaiming, “This [expletive] don’t stop, man,” for about a minute before he hears deputies on a loudspeaker outside his home. As Hollings runs out of the room, deputies can be heard in the background shouting, “This is Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. We have a search warrant.” This is followed by a series of loud noises, which neighbors told Fox 30 were smoke grenades thrown into the house. Hollings was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of cocaine and possession of paraphernalia for the manufacture or delivery of drugs. Hollings has a long criminal history in Duval County, including previous drug charges, court and Jackson Sheriff’s Office records show. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Me Re: Change watch battery Dear Webby How to change a watch battery For many years I used to go to Walmart, buy a watch battery, and flirt the lady there to install it for me. Now they raised the price of watch batteries and have signs there that they won't install watch batteries. Well, that is a nuissance, but not really a big deal. Here is how you change a watch battery: You need a sharp small screwdriver, the old-fashioned flat balde type, and, depending on your eyesight, a magnifying glass or magnifying sheet. Lay the watch face down on the table or clamp it into a toy or craft vise. Take the screwdriver or a knife and pry up the back. You will be surprised how easily it comes up. Since usually your wrist presses it in, it does not have to be glued or screwed in. Once the back plate is off, you will see the battery. Check with the magnifying glass to read the number and compare with the one you bought. If they are the same, look for the + sign. If you see a + sign, then the new battery has to be in there the same way, with the + sign on top. Now take your little screwdriver or a tooth pick and lift out the old battery. Toss it, so that there is no chance of a mix- up. Now push in the new batter so that the + faces in the same direction. Finally, put the back plate back on, push it in as far as it goes, and check if it is on straight. If it is on straight, put a book on it and whack the book with a fist or elbow. Done. That's all there is to it. Have FUN! DearWebby
The preacher spent his whole sermon relating the evils of sin and how all men are sinners with no exceptions. At the end of the sermon he asked rhetorically, "Now does anyone here think they are without sin?" He had only to wait a few seconds before a man in one of the back pews stood up. The pastor asked the man who had the audacity to stand after such a fiery sermon, "Sir, do you really think you are completely without sin?" The man quickly answered, "No sir, I'm not standing up for myself, but for my wife's first husband."

Daily tip from Marigolds to Control Bugs on Your Tomato Plants By poehere [41 Posts, 50 Comments] The marigold flower is the best way to control bugs on your tomato plants. The roots of the flower control the bugs in the soil and the flower will protect your plants from bug infestation. When you plant your tomato plants in the ground, surround them with marigold flowers. The flowers are easily grown from seeds or you can gather your own seeds from the dried flowers. Once the flowers have died pick them and pull them apart. Inside each flower is a lot of grain. The flowers will self germinate. During heavy winds or rains the dead flowers will lose their seeds. The seeds are spread around the garden and will grow again. Therefore, its only necessary to buy one or two packages of marigold seeds for your garden. You can recover your flower seeds each year and store them in an air tight container in your refrigerator. This preserves the seeds for 8 months to 1 year.

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Roland for this one: I ain't much for shopping, Or for goin' into town Except at cattle-shipping time, I ain't too easily found. But the day came when I had to go - I left the kids with Ma. But 'fore I left, she asked me, "Would you pick me up a bra?" So without thinkin' I said, "Sure," How tough could that job be? An' I bent down and kissed her An' said, "I'll be back by three." Well, I done the things I needed, But I started to regret Ever offering to buy that thing - I worked me up a sweat I walked into the ladies shop My hat pulled over my eyes, I didn't want to take a chance On bein' recognized. I walked up to the sales clerk - I didn't hem or haw - I told that lady right straight out, "I'm here to buy a bra." >From behind I heard some snickers, So I turned around to see Every woman in that store Was a'gawkin' right at me! "What kind would you be looking for?" Well, I just scratched my head. I'd only seen one kind before, "Thought bras was bras," I said. She gave me a disgusted look, "Well sir, that's where you're wrong. Follow me," I heard her say, Like a dog, I tagged along. She took me down this alley Where bras was on display. I thought my jaw would hit the floor When I saw that lingerie. They had all these different styles That I'd never seen before I thought I'd go plumb crazy 'fore I left that women's store. They had bras you wear for eighteen hours And bras that cross your heart. There was bras that lift and separate, And that was just the start. They had bras that made you feel Like you ain't wearing one at all, And bras that you can train in When you start off when you're small. Well, I finally made my mind up - Picked a black and lacy one - I told the lady, "Bag it up," And figured I was done. But then she asked me for the size I didn't hesitate I knew that measurement by heart, "A six-and-seven-eighths." "Six and seven eighths you say? That really isn't right." "Oh, yes ma'am! I'm real positive - I measured them last night!" I thought that she'd go into shock, Musta took her by surprise When I told her that my wife's bust Was the same as my hat size. "That's what I used to measure with, I figured it was fair, But if I'm wrong, I'm sorry ma'am." This drew another stare. By now a crowd had gathered And they all was crackin' up When the lady asked to see my hat, To measure for the cup. When she finally had it figured, I gave the gal her pay. Then I turned to leave the store, Tipped my hat and said, "Good day." My wife had heard the story 'fore I ever made it home. She'd talked to fifteen women Who called her on the phone. She was still a-laughin' But by then I didn't care. Now she don't ask and I don't shop For women's underwear.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Saul Nunez, 19, Bronx, NY 19-Year-Old Arrested In Unprovoked Beating Of 90-Year-Old Man The suspect in Friday's brutal cane attack on a 90-year-old man in Inwood was arrested last night, the NYPD announced. According to police, 19-year-old Saul Nunez of the Bronx was taken into custody last night and charged with two counts of assault and one count of criminal possession of a weapon by a felon for allegedly striking a 90-year-old man in the head with a cane on Friday night. The 90-year-old man, identified as Juan Llorens, is a bottle collector known around the block where the attack happened according to CBS. Llorens told a reporter with the channel that the attack left him deaf in one ear, and that he had no idea who Nunez was before Nunez assaulted him. "Everyone knows him as like the grandfather," a witness told CBS. "If something happens, I’m not going to let this guy get attacked." The Post had further background on Llorens, who was a former history teacher in Cuba before emigrating to the United States, where he worked as a butcher in Harlem. Llorens also told the paper about the attack, telling a reporter “They hit me with a big bat. I don’t know who it was. He was young and skinny. He just kept beating me...I don’t understand how someone can just attack someone like that. This is someone who is very dangerous." ABC7 had a pair of surveillance videos of the attack, one that showed a different angle of the assault and its aftermath as witnesses aided the victim and another that showed a bystander chase the suspect while another person on the sidewalk took a wild swing at the fleeing perp. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sunny Re: Date for web page Dear Webby How do I put a live date onto my web page?

Late one Friday night after a big soccer game the policemen spotted a man driving very erratically through the streets of Dublin. They pulled the man over and asked him if he had been drinking that evening. "Aye, so I have. The team won, you know, so me and the lads stopped by the pub where I had six or seven pints. And then there was something called "Happy Hour" and they served these margaritas, which are quite good. I had four or five o' those. Then I had to drive me friend Mike home and O' course I had to go in for a couple of Guinness - couldn't be rude, ye know. Then I stopped on the way home to get another bottle for later.." The man fumbled around in his coat until he located his bottle of whiskey, which he proudly held up for inspection. The officer sighed, and said, "Sir, I'm afraid I'll need you to step out of the car and take a Breathalyzer test." The man said, "Why? Don't ye believe me?!?" The cop replied: "I do believe ya, Paddy. But after ya fall flat on yer drunken mug, it's a lot easier to put the handcuffs on ya."

____________________________________________________ A young couple met with their pastor to set a date for their wedding. When he asked whether they preferred a contemporary or a traditional service, they opted for the contemporary. On the big day, a major storm forced the groom to take an alternate route to the church. The streets were flooded, so he rolled up his pants legs to keep his trousers dry. When he finally reached the church, his best man rushed him into the sanctuary and up to the altar, just as the ceremony was starting. "Pull down your pants," whispered the pastor. "Uh, Reverend, I've changed my mind," the groom responded. "I think I would prefer the traditional service." ___________________________________________________

Howard County Police officers still write their reports by hand, and the data is entered later by a computer tech into their database. One theft report stated that a farmer had lost 2,025 pigs. Thinking that to be an error, the tech called the farmer directly. "Is it true Mr. (Smith) that you lost 2,025 pigs?" she asked. "Yeth." lisped the farmer. Being a Howard County girl herself, the tech entered: "Subject lost 2 sows and 25 pigs."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Police Cought Florida Drama Teacher Having Sex With Student in Back of Car Pamela Stigger, 33, Tamarac, Florida A drama teacher in Tamarac, Florida was caught by the police having sex with her 15-year-old student in the back of a car, according to the Miami Herald after local residents complained about an illegally parked car obstructing traffic and nobody in the front seats. Pamela Stigger, 33, claimed she was only trying to mentor him, after police found her at 2 a.m. Thursday, moments after she had engaged in sexual acts with a 15-year-old boy in the back of a car. 2 am mentoring in the back seat? The arrest report said the Sheriff's office found the teenager nude from the waist down and that he told the deputies he had sex with Stigger. According to a Sheriff's office spokesperson: When [Stigger] was questioned about what they were doing and if they had, in fact, engaged in sexual acts, she denied being engaged in these sexual acts, despite the fact that the young man was undressed. Considering that they were in the BACKseat with pants down, that did not fly. She also tried to claim the student tried to seduce her first, before changing her story to flat out denial. Stigger is facing two charges of sexual battery and one count of lewd conduct with a minor. She was the student's drama teacher at Forest Glen Middle School last year and holds a custodial relationship over him. Stigger who has worked for the school since 2008, has been put on administratively reassigned duties away from the school, and will not be permitted access to students. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sandra Re: Why PDF? Dear Webby Why are people using PDF for e-books? It makes it impossible to copy just a few paragraphs or chapters. How do you get around that? Sandra Dear Sandra The main reason why authors use PDF is to protect their hard work from copy-cats like you, who want to steal their work and claim it as their own. The second reason is that PDF makes a book look and print the same no matter what kind of computer the reader uses. The third reason is that it puts everything, text and pictures into a nice, neat package without the need for lots of lose files. If you just want to copy a paragraph to paste up on your fridge, use a graphics program and do a screen capture, size and crop it the way you want it, and then print it. You can import PDF into Office Libre and some other programs. Have FUN! DearWebby
An older couple had a son, who was still living with his parents. The parents were a little worried, as the son was still unable to decide about his future career, so they decided to do a small test. They took a ten-dollar bill, a Bible, and a bottle of whiskey, and put them on the front hall table... then they hid, pretending they were not at home. The father's plan was: "If our son takes the money, he will be a businessman, if he takes the bible, he will be a priest - but if he takes the bottle of whiskey, I'm afraid our son will be a drunkard." So the parents hid in the nearby closet and waited nervously. Peeping through the keyhole they saw their son arrive. The son saw the note they had left. Then, he took the 10-dollar bill, looked at it against the light, and slid it in his pocket. After that, he took the Bible, flicked through it, and took it. Finally he grabbed the bottle, opened it, and took an appreciative whiff to be assured of the quality ... then he left for his room, carrying all three items. The father slapped his forehead, and said: "Darn, it's even worse than I could ever have imagined... " "What's this mean!?" his wife asked quizzically. "I'm afraid our son's going to be a politician!"

Daily tip from Growing Chamomile By EllenB [810 Posts, 1 Comment] Description: Chamomile has dainty, daisy-like white flowers with yellow centers set on top of thin stems of feathery green leaves. It comes in creeping or trailing varieties, and seldom grows to more than 12 inches high. Flowers of the creeping varieties contain properties sought after in the herb garden and give off a lovely, apple-like scent. Life Cycle: hardy perennial Exposure: full sun or partial shade Cultivation: Chamomile isn't fussy about the soil it grows in and adapts well to poor conditions. Sow seeds in a sunny location in the spring and once established, plants will readily reseed and spread themselves all over your garden. The plants look straggly when planted on their own and look better in large groups or "drifts". Propagation: division or seeds Parts Used: flowers Harvesting and Storage: Use a scissors to clip flowers from stems just as they fully open. Spread them out on racks or in shallow pans to dry, and store in an airtight container away from direct sunlight. Medicinal Uses: insomnia, digestive relief, and mouthwash Culinary Uses: teas, German Chamomile can be added to sour cream to top potatoes Other Uses: hair care, skin care, wreaths, dried flowers, potpourri, and perennial gardens
Camomile is a very hardy weed and will grow nicely in the center of rural roads even in the Yukon. Once it is firmly established your "Tea Farm" will spread on it's own. Nothing to worry about with lawn. It does not like getting mowed. You can harvest it all you want, just don't ever mow it. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

A tourist walks into a curio shop in San Francisco. Looking around at the exotica, he notices a very lifelike, life-sized bronze statue of a rat. It has no price tag, but is so striking he decides he must have it. He took it to the owner: "How much for the bronze rat?" "Twelve dollars for the rat, one hundred dollars for the story," said the owner. The tourist gave the man twelve dollars. "I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story." As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat, he noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and began following him down the street. This was disconcerting; he began walking faster. But within a couple blocks, the herd of rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they began squealing. He began to trot toward the Bay, looking around to see that the rats now numbered in the MILLIONS, and were squealing and coming toward him faster and faster. Concerned, even scared, he ran to the edge of the Bay and threw the bronze rat as far out into the Bay as he could. Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the Bay after it, and were all drowned. The man walked back to the curio shop. "Ah ha," said the owner, "You have come back for the story?" "No," said the man, "I came back to see if you have a bronze politician?"

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tremaine Jamison, 27, Harlem, New York Harlem man shot and killed Pensylvania man at kindergarten graduation party Police say a New York City man fatally shot a Pennsylvania man who was hosting a kindergarten graduation party for his son and several other children. Witnesses tell state police that a fight or rough play between the victim's 6-year-old son and another 6-year-old led to an argument between adults that ended when 27-year-old Tremaine Jamison shot 29-year-old Devon Brown in the head. The party and shooting happened Wednesday evening at the Marion Terrace Apartments in Hanover Township, Luzerne County. That's near Wilkes-Barre, about 20 miles (32.2 kilometers) southwest of Scranton. Online court records show troopers have charged Jamison with criminal homicide and possessing a prohibited weapon by a felon. Police say Jamison lives in the Harlem section of New York City and police were continuing to search for him Friday. Jamison has previously been arrested for narcotics possession in New York City. He also served time for robbery. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Enjo Re: Why are the blacklists listing me? Dear Webby I dont spam, but I have a formal newsletter that, just like yours, jumps through all the hoops, but now I am blocked by Yahoo and all their fake fronts like SBCglobal,, etc. Why is that? Enjo Dear Enjo Most likely that is due to bouncing, and not your newsletter. When somebody sends spam to you with a fake name before the @, then traditionally that is bounced back to the sender. Nowadays that is used to load down a server and break down the defenses. A hacker generates countless spams that have for example your name mis-spelled in the TO line, and a business or government address forged in as the sender. So your server bounces those phony mails to that business or Government server. When the hackers use a whole network of infected home computers to send a Million phony mails like that, the bounces overwhelm the victims server. The formal name for that is "Backscatter". If your server bounces mails like that, it gets put into some blacklists. `Not all, but some of the blacklists demand $100 or more to take you off their blacklist. Quite a racket! The trick is to NOT get onto those blacklists in the first place. Set your server to never send bounces. Also, turn off all autoresponders. Some of the Blacklists send out entrapment mails. If that entrapment mail bounces back to their trap, your server is blacklisted and Yahoo blocks mail from your server. So, stop all traditional bouncing from your server. It`s just another hoop you have to jump through nowadays. Have FUN! DearWebby
Thanks to Dianne for this classic: Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business. Several members did not approve of her extra-curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence. She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, the plumber, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his pickup parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon. She emphatically told George and several others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing. George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing. Later that evening, George and his crew of plumbers apprentices quietly parked their pickup trucks in front of Mildred's house............. and left them there all night.

Daily tip from Microwave Corn on the Cob By Jackie H. [230 Posts, 109 Comments] You will never boil corn on the cob again. This is easy, and the tastiest, sweetest corn ever. You are not boiling all the flavor out of corn. You can cook 1 or up to 4 at a time. The time may vary with how many you are cooking. 4 minutes in the Microwave, turning over at 2:00 minutes. Add 1 minute for add'l ears of corn. Follow examples in pictures. Being cautious of hot corn when it comes out of the Microwave. Using Mitts or pot holders is wise. Total Time: 4:00 minutes for 1 ear of corn, add'l 1 per ear. Yield: As many as you wish to cook. Source: Online for Microwave cooking! Steps: Start by removing old dark husks that are loose only. With a large sharp knife, cut of stump and about 1/4 inch into the corn. Cut away the loose silk and dead husks at the top. Rinse well in cold water. Put Corn wrapped in wet paper towel in Microwave Cook on high for 4:00 minutes, turning over after 2:00 minutes. Carefully removing from Microwave with Mitts or pot holders. With a Paper towel, just squeeze the thin end of the corn and your corn should come sliding out with no husks or silk. Keep squeezing until corn falls out neat & clean Ready to eat, Hot, sweet and delicious.
And then there is the bachelor way: Rinse the cobs Toss the cobs into the microwave Nuke them for 4 minutes Cut off the fat end at the largest point Grab the hairy end with an oven mitt and squeeze. IF you cut the fat end at the largest point, the corn will slide out without any silk. Until you get the hang of cutting at the largest point, you may have to re-cut a bit. Most corn is very fussy about that. If you cut it right, it slides out with minimal effort. Butter it a bit, sprinkle salt and pepper on it, and enjoy! Have FUN! DearWebby

____________________________________________________ Two college seniors with an exam the next day had decided to party the night away instead of study. So, when they went to the test the next morning, they explained to the professor that their car had a flat tire the night before and they needed a bit more time to study. The professor gave them another day, so that evening the boys crammed all night until they were sure that they knew just about everything. Arriving to class the following morning, each boy was told to go into separate classrooms to take the exam. They shrugged and went into their respective rooms. As each sat down, they read the first question: "For 5 points, explain the contents of an atom." At this point, they both thought the exam was going to be a piece of cake and answered the question with ease. Then, the test continued: "For 95 points, tell me which tire it was." ___________________________________________________

Thanks to Kati for this story: Have you ever told a white lie? Alice was to bake a cake for the ladies' bridge group bake sale, but she forgot to do it until the last minute. She baked an angel food cake and when she took it from the oven, the center had dropped flat. She said, "Oh dear, there's no time to bake another cake." So, she looked around the house for something to build up the center of the cake. Alice found it in the bathroom ... a roll of toilet paper. She plunked it in and covered it with icing. The finished product looked beautiful, so she rushed it to the sale. Before she left the house, Alice had given her daughter some money and specific instructions to be at the bake sale the minute it opened, and to buy that cake and bring it home. When the daughter arrived at the sale, the attractive cake had already been sold. Alice was beside herself. The next day, Alice was invited to a friend's home where two tables of bridge were to be played that afternoon. After the game, a fancy lunch was served, and to top it off, the cake in question was presented for dessert. Alice saw the cake, she started to get out of her chair to rush into the kitchen to tell her hostess all about it, but before she could get to her feet, one of the other ladies said, "What a beautiful cake!" Alice sat back in her chair and almost wet herself when she heard the hostess say .. "Thank you, I baked it myself."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tori Castillo, 39, Riverdale, Utah Utah Mom Locked Kids In Car Trunk To Shop At Walmart A Utah mom faces child abuse charges after she allegedly locked her two kids in the trunk of a car and went shopping at Walmart. Tori Castillo was arrested and booked into jail Thursday, according to a police news release obtained by Gephardt Daily. She has been charged with four counts of child abuse involving physical injury and one of retail theft, according to the Weber County Sheriff's Office. Riverdale police arrived at a Walmart Thursday for a report of child neglect, according to the news release. A witness told them that a woman had locked children in a car's trunk. Several people heard noise coming from inside the trunk. The kids, ages two and five, were "moving frantically," "causing the vehicle to shake." Charity Maw heard them pounding against the wall, she told Good4Utah. “The little girl’s voice, just screaming, 'let me out! I’m scared,'” Maw said. “I was shocked, I was shaken, and I was mad.” Shopper Heidi, who didn't want her last name used, told Fox 13 she told the girl how to open the trunk’s emergency latch. The two sweaty children jumped out right away. While they waited for police to get there, the mother came back from the store, Heidi told Fox 13. "The only explanation she had was, 'My babysitter didn't show up.'" Police say the children were released to their father, according to Good4Utah. The state's Department of Child and Family Services is also investigating. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Marian Re: Spam complaints from Juno Dear Webby I run a legitimate newsletter but now and then my web host forwards me spam complaints from Juno. They don't take them serious, and they say they just forward them for my amusement, but should I be concerned? How do you deal with situations like that? Marian Dear Marian The cause of those complaints is some JUNO user clicking on their "This is spam" button to put your newsletter on vacation-hold, so that it does not fill up their mailbox while they are away. The "techs" at JUNO's mail department don't check, they blindly malfunction and send out spam complaints. Just send them a letter telling them that they are a bunch of incompetent idiots. You can be as abusive as you want, since the apes there can't read anyway. As long as something comes back, the matter is settled. It seems that their complaints are just a klutzy way of checking if the stuff was sent by a spam machine, or by a human. A spam machine ignores them, a human tells them they are a bunch of %$& @#$%s. Just make sure they don't think you are a spam machine '-) Actually, I have not seen any complaints from there in a while. Maybe they are slowly smartening up? Don't automate your reply to them! That will get you blocked by the Blacklists and your newsletter will really be in trouble! Have FUN! DearWebby
Two little kids are in a hospital, lying on stretchers next to each other outside the operating room. The first kid leans over and asks, "What are you in here for?" The second kid says, "I'm in here to get my tonsils out and I'm a little nervous." The first kid says, "You've got nothing to worry about. I had that done when I was four. They put you to sleep, and when you wake up they give you lots of Jell-o and ice cream. It's a breeze." The second kid then asks, "What are you here for?" The first kid says, "A circumcision." "Whoa!", the second kid replies. "Good luck buddy. I had that done when I was born. Couldn't walk for a year."

Daily tip from Cleaning Fingernails After Gardening By ShirleyE [161 Posts, 103 Comments] Even if you wear gardening gloves your hands and fingernails get ingrained with dirt that is hard to remove. So, before you put your gloves on, scratch a dampened bar of soap. Don't worry if the soap falls out of your nails as you do your gardening, there will still be enough soapiness under them to make this work. When you clean your hands later, simply add a little more soap to your nailbrush and the dirt will easily wash away. Most soils are alkaline so just as an extra measure to counteract this and to help prevent your skin and nails becoming dry course and brittle, add a little vinegar, lemon juice or other acidic foodstuff to a bowl of water for a final rinse.

Thanks to Martin for this one: During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director, "What is the criterion that defines a patient to be institutionalized?" "Well..." said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, and offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask them to empty the bathtub." 1. Would you use the spoon? 2. Would you use the teacup? 3. Would you use the bucket? "Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would choose the bucket as it is larger than the spoon or the teacup." The answer: "Noooooo," said the Director. "A normal person would pull the plug".

A few years ago, there was a Mensa convention in San Francisco, and several members ate dinner at a local café. While dining, they discovered that their salt shaker contained pepper and their pepper shaker contained salt. How could they swap the contents of the bottles without spilling them, using only the implements at hand? Clearly this was a job for these Mensa members. The group debated and presented ideas and finally came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer. They called the waitress over to dazzle her with their solution. "Miss," they said, "we couldn't help but notice that the pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker—" "Oh," the waitress interrupted. "Sorry about that."

Christina Sarao, 35, got pulled over in front of a home for not wearing a seat belt, but when the deputy asked for her ID she got out of her truck and started running, TC Palm reports. Sarao initially told the deputy her name was Holly Smith and her ID was inside her grandmother’s home, but the deputy recognized her since he “had prior interactions with her,” according to TC Palm. Once the deputy caught Sarao she allegedly yelled to him “I have to poop and I’m pregnant!” the arrest report states. She later admitted to the deputy that she wasn’t pregnant and the home she parked at was not her grandmother’s, according to TC Palm. When the deputy searched Sarah he found meth and a pipe in her bra, which she told the deputy she bought at a yard sale down the street, according to TC Palm.

Dear Webby I know you answered this last year, but I didn't save it. What type of microphone is best ? Stationary, cheek, front boom, or lapel? Britta Dear Britta Voice quality is usually best with a cheek or side boom, but if they are just hanging on one ear, they are a real nuisance. Second best voice quality is with a lapel mike, a real lapel mike made for that purpose, not any other mike pinned to your front. Stationary microphones are excellent, if you are in a sound booth and wearing a DJ's neck brace. If you look to the side at a wall calendar, your voice fades, yet the microphone will pick up a fan in the next room. Amplified directional mikes overcome those problems, because they allow you to be farther away and have a wider focus. Front boom mikes can be absolute worst, especially if an amateur positions the microphone right in front of the mouth and terrorizes the listeners with "chicken-scratch", the harsh sounds produced by "t"s "p"s and other "explosive" consonants recorded from too close. Worst of all is when somebody holds the microphone from a head set in their hand and waves it in front of their mouth. If you use a cheap front-boom mike, position it so that it is at chin level, never at lip level ! Resist any pranksters that want you to move it closer for more volume. If you need more volume, go into the Windows Control Panel, Sound Options, crank up the microphone volume and select microphone boost. With microphone boost set to ON, you can usually bend a front boom to the side of your cheek, out of the line of fire from the explosive consonants and still get plenty of volume. Have FUN! DearWebby

There was a lot to learn to become a Stewardess in the sixties. Those ladies were not just eye candy!
A bride called to make a change to her wedding registry. It is common, almost expected, that a bride will change something on her registry at least once (dishes, color of towels, sheets, bathroom items, etc.). The Customer Service Representative told her that J.C. Penney would be happy to make the change. He asked if the bride wanted to change the dishes or the linens. The bride said, "No, keep all that. I just wanted to change the name of the groom. The first one chickened out and I had to get another one."

>From Paul One semester when my brother, Peter, attended the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, an art-student friend of his asked if he could paint Peter's portrait for a class assignment. Peter agreed, and the art student painted and submitted the portrait, only to receive a C minus. The art student approached the professor to ask why the grade was so poor. The teacher told him that the proportions in the painting were incorrect. "The head is too big," the professor explained. "The neck is too thin, the shoulders are too wide, and the feet are enormous. Nobody is THAT ugly. You did a carricature. We do that next semster." The next day, the art student brought Peter to see the professor. He took one look at my brother and said, "Okay, A minus."

Later, at the door, shaking hands with parishioners as they moved out, one man said, "Your sermon, Pastor, was simply wonderful - so invigorating and inspiring and refreshing." The minister of course, broke out in a big smile, only to hear the man say, "Boy, I felt like a new man when I woke up!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the last 22 months, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000. The firearm death rate in Washington, DC is 80.6 per 100,000. That means that you are 25% more likely to be shot and killed in the US Capitol than if you are in Iraq. That does not include other violent forms of death. Conclusion: Pulling out of Washington, DC should be given at least 25% higher priority than pulling out of Iraq.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Anthony Garay, 31, San Antonio, Texas Sex assault case comes to light after girl caught watching porn in school A Southwest Bexar County man is facing charges of continuous sexual assault of a child after the case came to light in an unusual way. The alleged victim, a nine-year-old girl, told it all after she was caught watching pornography in school, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. Anthony Garay, 31, was arrested Tuesday as the result of an investigation by the Bexar County Sheriff's Office. The affidavit said a teacher confronted the girl May 17 after she noticed her watching pornography on a school-issued iPad the previous day. The girl responded saying that a friend was helping her search the internet for more information on what Garay had been doing to her, the affidavit said. School officials reported the allegations to the sheriff's office and investigators questioned the child. The affidavit said that she told them Garay had been performing sex acts on her since she was seven or eight years old, and continued until that week. She also said that he had done the same thing to her sister. The court document also said that Garay had been under investigation by Child Protective Services in the past regarding allegations of sexual assault involving the same two children. However, it did not disclose what the outcome of that investigation was. Garay`s father has been on the run since he was sentenced to serve ten years for identical charges. There was no mention of the girl`s parents. Maybe they are on the run too. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Alene Re: Web Mail or POP mail Dear Webby What is the difference between Web Mail and POP mail? Alene Dear Alene Traditional POP mail is stored at your local dial-up or high speed Internet provider and you pull it down to your computer with an email program that sits on your computer. Web Mail sits on a web server somewhere, often half a world away from you, and you use a mail program that is on that server to work on your mail. You save what you want to keep onto your computer. Web mail is more flexible and you can check your mail from any cyber cafe or friends place or from work, without having to install a mail program first. Some people prefer good old POP style email, just like some people prefer Diesel engines over Gasoline. Both types work well, and it just a matter of personal preferences. Some types of email providers use a mix of the two. For example Gmail is basically a Web Mail, but you can set it in the settings to act like POP mail and to forward the cleaned mail to your POP address at your own domain or your local ISP. Gmail is excellent for doing the rough primary spam cleaning of your mail. What is then forwarded to your domain or ISP based mail just needs just some final fine-tooth cleaning with MailWasher. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from This is slightly cleaned up from Shakespearean days: A well-dressed business man was walking down the street when a rough-looking little kid stopped him and asked, "Sir, can you tell me the time?" The gentleman carefully unbuttoned his coat and jacket, removed a large watch from a vest pocket, looked at it and said, "It is a quarter to three, young man." "Thanks," said the boy. "At exactly three o'clock you can kiss my butt!" With that, the kid took off running, and with an angry cry, the outraged businessman started chasing him. He had not been running long when an old friend stopped him. "Why are you running to like a maniac?" asked the friend. Gasping and almost incoherent with fury, the business man said, "That little brat asked me the time and when I told him it was quarter to three he told me that at exactly three, I could kiss his butt!" "So what's your hurry," said the friend, looking at his own watch. "You still have twelve minutes."

>From Brent My girlfriend Tricia called me as she was driving to an appointment. She arrived, and I could tell from her voice that she was getting frustrated. Finally she said, "I know I had my cell phone with me. And now I can't find it!" I replied, "Aren't you talking on it!?" There was a solid period of stunned silence as the reality of the situation sank in - followed by, "I will murder you, if you tell anybody about this!"

A Pastor was called to a local nursing home to perform a wedding. An anxious old man met him at the door. The pastor sat down to counsel the old man and asked several questions. "Do you love her?" The old man replied, "Nope." "Is she a good Christian woman?" "I don't know for sure," the old man answered. "Does she have lots of money?" asked the pastor. "I doubt it." "Then why are you marrying her?" the preacher asked. "Cause she can drive at night," the old man said.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rehnu Singh, 50, San Jose, California Home Invader Arrested After Elerly Man Knocks Her Down And Holds Her Until Cops Arrive After She Had Bloodied His Wife With A Club An Elderly Man Who Said He Pleaded To No Avail For Help From Bystanders Managed To Beat Back His Wife’S Alleged Assailant Sunday Night, Holding Down The Suspect In Front Of His Home Until Santa Clara County Sheriff’S Deputies Arrived And Arrested Her. Yousef Youkhaneh, 82, Told This News Organization That After Wrestling With The Home Invader And Being Dragged Onto Mckee Road In Front Of His Home, He Looked Up Only To See People Slow Down Their Cars Not To Help, But To Take Photos Of The Struggle, Then Drive On. No One Stopped To Give Him Aid, He Said. "I Said, "Call Police, Somebody Help Me! I Am Tired," Youkhaneh Recalled From His Backyard Monday Afternoon, Where The Incident Began. "Nobody Did Anything." After 10 Minutes, He Said, Santa Clara County Sheriff’S Deputies Arrived To Arrest Rehnu Singh, A 50-Year-Old San Jose Woman Already On Probation For Burglary. She Was Booked Into Santa Clara County Jail For Investigation Of Elder Abuse, Assault With A Deadly Weapon, Attempted Burglary And Probation Violation, Said Sheriff’S Sgt. Richard Glennon. Glennon Said Sheriff’S Deputies Had Been Called Around 5:50 P.M. In Response To An Apparent Assault Of A Woman By A Man In The Street, But Soon Discovered Otherwise. Youkhaneh Said He Was Inside His Home Going Over Paperwork When He Heard His Wife Screaming For Help Outside The Door To The Couple’S Backyard. He Rushed Out To See His 76-Year-Old Wife Christina Youkhaneh With A Bloodied Head After Singh Had Allegedly Hit Her With A Heavy Branch. The Gash Required Eight Stitches. Drops Of His Wife’S Blood Were Still Visible On The Back Door And Pavement Monday As He Recalled Her Laying On The Ground, Exhorting Him Not To Let Singh Get Away. "She Had Tools In Her Hand And She Tried To Hit Me," Said The Retired Auto Body Shop Owner, Showing Bite Marks Left On His Hand From The Attack. "But I Didn’T Let Her Go." As They Headed Out Along His Driveway That Leads Straight Into Traffic, Youkhaneh Managed To Grab Singh’S Ankle. By The Time They Got To The Sidewalk Bordering The Traffic, "I Fell Down And She Fell Down," He Said, Lifting His Left Pant Leg To Show His Skinned Knee. "But I Didn’T Let Her Go. I Held Onto Her With All My Power." Singh Screamed To Witnesses: "I Didn’T Do It; The Man Did It!" Youkhaneh Said. He Looked Up And Saw People — Across The Street, On The Sidewalk, And Many Slowing Down Their Cars To Take Photos With Their Phones, And He Called For Help. "Why Didt They Help?" He Asked Monday. "What Kind Of People Is This Taking Pictures? Maybe Someday It Happens To Them." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Yahoos Re: Switch to regular font size Dear Webby How Do I Switch From Large To Regular Font?

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Barry Baker, 29, West Chester, Pennsylvania PA veteran's grave robber arrested for assaulting man with cerebral palsy. The Pennsylvania dirtbag arrested for sucker punching a man with cerebral palsy is actually a worse person than he appears, records show. Barry Baker, 29, was charged earlier this month with battery for an unprovoked 2:30 AM attack outside a 7-Eleven in West Chester (where Baker has lived and worked for a tow company). As seen in the above surveillance video, Baker, an ex-con, walloped the 22-year-old victim after mocking the way the man walked. Though Baker--charged with assault, harassment, and disorderly conduct--was initially released on $25,000 bail, he will soon return to jail after a judge this week issued an arrest warrant charging him with violating his probation. According to court records, Baker was placed on three years probation in October 2015 for violating terms of a probation sentence imposed following his conviction for theft from a motor vehicle. In addition to his arrest this month, Baker allegedly violated his probation by not paying restitution, fines, and court costs of nearly $4500. Baker’s rap sheet includes convictions for theft, forgery, conspiracy, and receiving stolen property. The latter count stemmed from Baker’s involvement in a crime on par with punching a guy with cerebral palsy in the face. In 2007, Baker pleaded guilty to his role in the theft of hundreds of bronze flag holders that marked the graves of veterans at two Pennsylvania cemeteries. Baker and his accomplices stole the markers so that they could be sold as scrap metal. Police recovered nearly 250 flag holders--worth about $10,000--from a Pennsylvania scrap company. Baker, who was charged with 143 counts of intentional desecration of a venerated object, pleaded guilty to felony conspiracy and receiving stolen property counts. He was sentenced to a minimum of eleven-and-a-half months in jail and a maximum of 23 months in custody. He was also ordered to participate in a drug or alcohol treatment program and undergo a mental health evaluation. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Elsinore Re: How to choose domain names Dear Webby I know you mentioned it before, but I didn't need that info at the time and did not save it. What's to watch out for when choosing a domain name? Thanks Elsinore Dear Elsinore Above all, a domain name has to be memorable. It should be short enough and clear enough, so that you can shout it across a street or meeting room, and have people remember it correctly. Also make sure that the extension is a ".com" or a ".biz". ".com" is what people type on autopilot, without thinking. That is the most valuable one. "biz" is memorable enough that it works nearly as well. The name registration cost is the same. We charge $12 for ".com", "biz", ".net", ".org" and some of the less useful ones that I don't recommend. To test memorability, sing a name in the shower. If it sounds silly or awkward, try something else. If it sounds good and does not make you stumble, or cringe, then you have a winner. I have recommended that for over ten years and it has helped countless people to find a good name. You can always Skype me and tell me what you have in mind, and I'll help you find a short and memorable name. Have FUN! DearWebby
A veterinarian was feeling ill and went to see her doctor. The doctor asked her all the usual questions, about symptoms, how long had they been occurring, etc., when she interrupted him: "Hey look, I'm a vet -- I don't need to ask my patients these kind of questions: I can tell what's wrong just by looking. Why can't you?" The doctor nodded, looked her up and down, wrote out a prescription, and handed it to her and said, "There you are. Of course, if that doesn't work, we'll have to have you put down."

Daily tip from Organizing Baby Clothes Quite often when you buy or are given baby or toddler clothes they come in outfits. A matching top and bottom, maybe even with a matching hat. One way to keep these items together is to fold them and put them in large zip-lock bags before putting them away. You will be able to easily see the outfit and the bags and be used over and over again.

A man's car breaks down right in front of a farm and he's trying to fix it when he hears a voice coming behind him, "You have water in the gas tank." The man turns around and all he sees is a cow from the farm. He goes back to his car and again the same voice says, "You have water in the gas tank." The man turns around again and he sees nothing and nobody except the cow, and the voice defintiely came from the cow, "You have water in the gas tank." The man is shocked so he knocks on the door of the farmer's house. When the farmer answers the door the man says, "The cow talked to me and said I had water in my gas tank. He can talk?" The farmer replied, "Ignore her, that cow barely understands Diesel engines and doesn't have a clue about gas engines."

They searched the area for something larger and came upon a railroad tie. With great difficulty , the two men carried it to the opening and threw it in. While waiting for it to hit bottom, a goat suddenly darted between them and leapt into the hole! The guys were still standing there with astonished looks upon their faces from the actions of the goat when a man walked up to them. He asked them if they had seen a goat anywhere in the area and they said that one had just jumped into the mine shaft in front of them! The man replied, 'Oh no.

Dear Webby What is better for phone over the Internet, a headset or a separate microphone and earphones? Thanks Mario Dear Mario If you want to sound like a DJ or if you are participating in teleconferences, get a wireless lapel mike and a mike pre-amplifier with graphic equalizer, and a set of noise canceling cup type earphones. At the opposite end of the quality spectrum is a headset from the dollar store, complete with boom microphone and a too short 3 foot cord. A good compromise is $30 headset with boom mike, and an additional cord extension. 6 wire cords are often ridiculously overpriced and it pays to shop around for those. Otherwise you could wind up paying more for the extension cord than for the head set. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Faux Stained Glass Windows By DOROTHY [3 Posts, 2 Comments] This is a new use for old windows. They took about 2 days to make. Paint the window frames and let dry. Be creative and paint the glass with stained glass paint. Once dry, glue the marbles to the glass then let the glue dry.
The better craft stores and catalogs have liquid stained glass, and leading in a tube. Draw your design on the glass with a pencil or crayon, then use the leading in a tube to draw the boundaries between the colors. With real stained glass that would be tinned or leaded copper foil. Then you make sure you don`t have any unintended breaks in the leading. After that you decide what colors to use in each field, and pour a few drops of that color into that field. The raised bead of leading will confine the color to that field. Depending on the picture you want to create, you can add a drop of modifier, like starburst, ice crystal, flames, etc. The modifiers don`t change the color, just the apparent texture. Half an hour later it is dry and done. I used to create a lot of those in my Hippy years. You can use liquid stained glass on real glass and on plexiglass. Quite often I sandwiched a plexiglass stained window to a real glass window. My favorite trick was to just do a foot high strip for the top of windows, so as not to obstruct the view, but create beautiful colored projections from the sun shining through. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Mary F for this story: There were these two elderly people living in a Florida mobile home park. He was a widower and she a widow. They had known one another for a number of years. One evening there was a community supper in the big activity center. These two were at the same table, across from one another. As the meal went on, he made a few admiring glances at her and finally gathered up his courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?" After precisely six seconds of careful consideration, she answered. "Yes, yes, I will." The meal ended and with a few more pleasant exchanges, they went to their respective places. Next morning, he was troubled. "Did she say 'yes' or did she say 'no'?" He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. Not even a faint memory. With trepidation, he went to the telephone and called her. First, he explained to her that he didn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past. As he gained a little more courage, he then inquired of her, "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say 'Yes' or did you say 'No'?" He was delighted to hear her say, "Why, I said, 'Yes, yes I will' and I meant it with all my heart." Then she continued, "And I am so glad that you called, because I couldn't remember who had asked me.

Jill, ever the gracious hostess, was serving drinks at one of her parties. A friend of hers brought his brother who had just been ordained a Priest. She offered the friend a drink from the tray and said, "I'm sorry Father, I'll go right back to the kitchen and bring you a coke." The Priest smiled and said "No need to. I may have alcohol. Priests abstain from sex, not the grape." "Oh !" said Jill blushing, "So that's it. I knew it was one or the other that I wasn't supposed to offer you."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by James Pennington, 57, Denver, Colorado Colorado man arrested after castrating transgender woman for pay but without a license. A man without a medical license was arrested after allegedly using an Army surgical kit to remove the testicles of a transgender woman at her apartment, the Denver Police Department said. James Pennington, 57 of Denver, is alleged to have removed the testicles and sutured the opening while the woman's wife watched the 90-minute procedure on Wednesday, according to a probable cause statement. Pennington told the victim if any "complications" developed to call 911, according to the probable cause statement. The wife called 911 about 2 p.m. after blood was seeping from the incision. Paramedics said the testicles could not be reattached because of the time between the procedure and the call to 911, police said. A doctor with Medical Center of Aurora said the victim suffered serious bodily injury and "risk of permanent disfigurement," according to the statement. Pennington was interviewed by police on Thursday and, according to the probable cause statement, "confessed to completing this surgical procedure without medical license." Pennington was arrested for investigation of first-degree aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury. He is being held without bond. The Denver District Attorney's Office will make the final determination if charges will be filed. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Wanda Re: img ... pdf Dear Webby I got some emails with img, some numbers and then .pdf in the subject line.

Daily tip from Making Rosemary Napkin Rings By ShirleyE [165 Posts, 104 Comments] For a lovely place setting which will also give off a wonderful herbal aroma to get your guests' taste buds going, use a wrap of rosemary around the serviettes (napkins) instead of a traditional napkin ring. Supplies: rosemary sprigs garden raffia or twine scissors hole punch paper Steps: Print out your guests' names. Alternatively you could write them if you prefer. Cut out each name and round off the corners to neaten them. Add a punched hole. Roll up a serviette (napkin) and wrap a rosemary sprig around it. Overlap the ends of the sprig and tie with raffia or string. Thread the name tag onto the raffia and make a final knot. Trim the ends of the raffia and arrange your setting.
If you dont have raffia, you can use the colorful, beaded pony-tail rubber bands. They are usually 25 / $ at the Dollar store and indefinitely reusable. No panic when grampa canèt open the knots on the raffia. Have FUN! DearWebby

____________________________________________________ >From Wendy A retired older couple returned to a Mercedes dealership where the salesman has just sold the car they had been interested in to a beautiful, leggy, busty blonde in a mini skirt and a halter top. The old man was visibly upset. He spoke to the salesman sharply, "Young man, I thought you said you would hold that car till we raised the $55,000 asking price. Yet I just overheard you close the deal for $45,000 to the lovely young lady there. And if I remember right, you had insisted there was no way you could discount this model." The salesman took a deep breath, cleared his throat and reached for a large glass of water. "Well, what can I tell you? She had the cash ready, didn't need any financing help, and, Sir, just look at her, how could I resist?", replied the grinning salesman sheepishly. Just then the young woman approached the senior couple and gave the car keys to the old man. "There you go," she said. "I told you I could get that schmuck to lower the price. See you later Dad, Happy Father's day." ___________________________________________________

A second guy comes along and wants to let the right hand shop. When asked he says he wants "Menswear" on his sign. The owner tells him that the lefthand shop will be the same. "No problem," says the man. Finally a third man comes along to rent the middle shop. The owner is most concerned because this guy also has a menswear shop. Rather wearily the owner asks him what he wants on his sign. The guy replies: "Entrance."

Thanks to Ross for this story: A Jewish couple is sitting together on an airplane flying to The Far East. Suddenly, over the public address system, the Captain announces, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am afraid I have some very bad news. Our engines have ceased functioning and this plane will be going down. Luckily, I see an uncharted island below us that should be able to accommodate our landing. A few minutes later the plane lands safely on the island. After touring the island the captain announced to the passengers that the odds are that we will never be rescued and will have to live on the island for the rest of our lives." Morris turns to his wife and asks, "Esther, did we pay our charity pledge to the Yeshiva yet?" "No, Morris," she responds. Morris smiles and then asks, "Esther, did we pay our United Jewish Appeal pledge?" "Oy, no! I haven't sent the check," she says. Now Morris laughs out loud. "One last thing, Esther. Did you remember to send our Temple Building Fund check this month," he asks? "Oy, Morris, I haven't sent that one, either." says Esther. Now, Morris is practically choking with laughter. Esther asks Morris, “So? What are you laughing about?" Morris answers confidently, "They'll find us."

The man goes on and encounters another passer-by. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America!" The person says, "I no American, I Vietnamese." The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand and says, "Thank you for the wonderful America!" That person puts up his hand and says, "I am from Syria, I am not an American!" He finally sees a nice lady and asks suspiciously, "Are you an American?" She says, "No, I am from Russia!" So he is puzzled, and asks her, "Where are all the Americans?" The Russian lady looks at her watch, shrugs, and says... "Probably at work." ______________________________________________________ Splitrock lighthouse in Minnesota by Rochelle Soukup on "We Love Lighthouses" _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Devon Arthurs, 18, Tampa, Floriduh Florida Muslim convert killed roommates over disrespect to his faith Tampa police say a double homicide suspect told them he killed two roommates because they disrespected his Muslim faith. During an interview, 18-year-old Devon Arthurs admitted to the shooting deaths of Jeremy Himmelman and Andrew Oneschuk, and said they all used to be friends and shared neo-Nazi beliefs. Arthurs says he later converted to Muslim, and became angry with the world’s anti-Muslim sentiment. He told police he wanted to bring attention to his cause. The double homicide happened Friday night on Amberly Drive in New Tampa. Tampa police were called to the Green Planet Smoke Shop and say Arthurs was holding three people at gunpoint. According to the police report, Arthurs told them he killed someone and was upset over America bombing his Muslim countries. When police showed up, they convinced Arthurs to let the hostages go and eventually handcuffed him. The police report says Arthurs then made references to, “Allah Mohammed!” and told police, “I had to do it. This wouldn’t have had to happen if your country didn’t bomb my country.” Interesting to note that the bonehead referred to the US as "YOUR country" and ISIS controlled areas as "his country". While he was being arrested, Arthurs told an officer people in an apartment were dead. The suspect led police to the apartment at The Hamptons at Tampa Palms Apartments on Amberly Drive. Responding officers found a man crying outside the door in full U.S. Army camouflage. Arthurs told police the man was his roommate and said, “He doesn’t know what’s going on and just found them like you guys did.” Police found two men, later identified as Himmelman and Oneschuk, dead inside the apartment from gunshot wounds. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Tam Re: Where can I learn HTML?

An old fellow came into the hospital truly on death's door due to an infected gallbladder. The surgeon who removed the gallbladder was adamant that his patients be up and walking in the hall the day after surgery, to help prevent blood clots forming in the leg veins. The nurses walked the patient in the hall as ordered, and after the third day the nurse told how he complained bitterly each time they did. The surgeon told them to keep walking him. After a week, the patient was ready to go. His family came to pick him up and thanked the surgeon profusely for what he had done for their father. The surgeon was pleased and appreciated the thanks, but told them that it was really a simple operation and we had been lucky to get him in time. "But doctor, you don't understand," they said, "Dad hasn't walked in over ten years!"

Thanks to Roland for this story: Little Tony was staying with his grandmother for a few days. He'd been playing outside with the other kids for a while when he came into the house and asked her, "Grandma, what is that called when people are sleeping on top of each other?" She was a little taken aback, but decided to tell him the truth..."It's called sexual intercourse, darling." Little Tony just said, "Oh, OK" and went back outside to talk and play with the other kids. A few minutes later he came back in and said angrily, "Grandma, it is not called sexual intercourse! It's called Bunk Beds!"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Demetrius Vidale, 24, Deerfield Beach, Floriduh Florida Shooter Poops On His Arrest Warrant Being accused of a crime is pretty crappy, but that’s no reason to poop on a search warrant. That’s what a Florida man accused of shooting at a Deerfield Beach deputy allegedly did while his paperwork was being processed, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. Demetrius Vidale, 24, was arrested Tuesday in connection with a shootout that took place at about 3 a.m. Monday near Tropicante Nightclub, according to the Miami Herald. Authorities accuse Vidale of shooting and robbing club-goer Jordan Harris, who is expected to recover. In addition, Vidale allegedly shot at Broward Sheriff’s deputy Derrick Nesbitt, who was responding to reports of gunshots. The deputy fired back but wasn’t injured, according to WSVN TV. Vidale managed to elude capture until the next day, when he was apprehended while driving in Fort Lauderdale. Now Vidale has been charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted murder of a law enforcement officer, armed robbery, obstructing a police officer executing a search warrant and driving with a revoked license, according to the criminal complaint. But it’s what Vidale allegedly did while in custody thats really raising a stink. When officers pulled over Vidale, they served him with a search warrant to get his DNA in order to match him to the crime scene. Vidale refused to let officers take his picture, fingerprints or DNA, claiming a judge had "no jurisdiction over him," according to the Florida Sun-Sentinel. However, while Vidales paperwork was being processed, he allegedly went into the bathroom and dumped a whole bunch of DNA ? or "defecation not appreciated" ? on the warrant, according to WSVN-TV. Vidale appeared in court on Wednesday where he chose to represent himself and to argue with the judge, the Sun- Sentinel reports. Jail records show Vidale remains behind bars at the Broward County Main Jail. Until he recognizes the jurisdiction of the judge, the judge cant grant him bail anyway. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Chris Re: Value of Bat Dear Webby A friend is moving out of her home and came across this old bat she has had for years.

Daily tip from Peony Bushes Not Blooming By Frank [4 Posts, 20 Comments] If they are not setting buds then they are planted to deep. Peony need to be planted shallow. If you can see some of the root when planting that is ok. So you need to break up the roots and replant. You will probably have plants left over to give away. The earlier post is correct on the ants. Ants help them to bloom. Frank
Make sure the peonies have ants. They need them to produce flowers. As long as they have ants, they are as hardy as rhubarb. Mowing them in late summer also seems to help. Have FUN! DearWebby

In the hustle and bustle of getting settled, the gift was tucked away and temporarily forgotten. Three months later we held a Christening party for our third child. Champagne flowed in celebration until, running short, we remembered our housewarming gift. In front of our guests, I opened the attached card and read it aloud, "Donald, take good care of this one.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Katrina Kegelman, 24, Clearwater, Floriduh Florida woman in labor smokes crack, leaves newborn in yard A pregnant Florida woman was arrested for allegedly smoking crack cocaine while in labor and leaving her newborn outside, police said. Katrina Kegelman, 24, of Clearwater, gave birth Monday night at her home and left the baby in the back yard, according to the Tampa Bay Times. A friend “noticed blood on Kegelman’s pants” and called 911, the Times reported. Kegelman finally motioned to firefighters that the newborn was hidden in the yard, police said. Kegelman told police she lied about the child because she was afraid of getting arrested for “having smoked crack moments before giving birth,” the Times reported. Kegelman faces a child neglect charge. The infant is well, according to police. In most places use of crack, cocaine, or heroin during late pregnancy results in automatic confiscation and adoption of the infant by Protective Services and automatic child neglect charges. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bonnie Re: phishing at the PayPal pond Dear Webby I know you've touched on correspondence from PayPal in the past, but of course, I don't remember what you said!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Bernardo Calana, 53, Haverhill, Massachusetts Man wore Home Depot apron to steal air conditioners Police say a man donned an orange Home Depot apron and posed as an employee to steal air conditioners in New Hampshire. But a manager noticed the name on the garment didn’t match that of any worker at the store. Police arrested 53-year-old Bernardo Calana, of Haverhill, Massachusetts, on Saturday. WMUR-TV reports Calana loaded two air conditions into his pickup truck in Plaistow and went back inside. A manager noticed the apron with the name “Shannon” with flowers drawn on it and called police. Calana later told police he didn’t know anything about the air conditioners, but a Home Depot apron was found in his back pocket. Calana was released on bail. The voice mailbox for a listed phone number for him was full. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lupita Re: Hex numbers for colors Dear Webby how do I get those hex numbers for colors on web pages, when I need a color that is in between colors that have proper names? Thanks Lupita Dear Lupita Ther are a few programs that will do that. The one I have been using for about 20 years is called colour.exe. You can download it from and save it right onto the desktop. It is a very small program, but works 100% reliably and has no unnecesary confusion. It is free. Have FUN! DearWebby
A little boy got lost at the YMCA and wandered in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, "What's the matter? Haven't you ever seen a little boy before?"

Daily tip from Hairy Monster Paperclip Bookmarks By ShirleyE [170 Posts, 107 Comments] Supplies: paper clips cord or yarn in different colours scissors strong glue small wiggle eyes Steps: Cut some cord into short lengths about 2 to 3 inches long. Fold them in half. Pass the loop end through a paper clip. Pass the cut ends through the loop and pull tight. Repeat twice more and trim with scissors. Glue the wiggle eyes in place. You can use pva glue for this, but it will take a long time to dry and won't hold for very long. A strong quick drying glue will work better. Try different hairstyles. Wait until the glue is properly dry before using to mark a page. You don't want to be sticking the pages together.
Some leftover yarn or wool pieces will keep visiting kids busy on a rainy aafternoon. A flexible rubber type glue works best and the collateral mess is easy to clean up. Have FUN! DearWebby

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee." The husband said, " You are in charge of the cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee." Wife replied, "No you should do it, and besides it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee." Husband replied, " I can't believe that, show me." So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and shows him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says "HEBREWS"
