An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Carlos Tanner of Hillsborough County, Florida Sent in by Sandie Deputy Accused Of Terrorizing Wife With Taser Tuesday, July 08, 2008 10:48:01 AM DOVER -- Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputy Carlos Tanner was arrested Monday morning for allegedly using his police weapons on his wife. Deputies said the two were involved in a dispute when Tanner used the Taser on his wife three times, causing burns on her stomach. Tanner is also accused of placing his service weapon, a silver automatic handgun, to her head for 10 seconds. After the alleged attack, Tanner's wife ran to a friend's house to call 911. "They always, always went to church, attended church regularly. They were faithful people, so I'm just shocked," said Doris Randall, a family friend. One of Tanner's fellow deputies came out to his home and arrested him. Tanner is being held in the Hillsborough County jail with no bond. He has been placed on administrative leave without pay. http://www.cfnews13.com/News/Local/2008 ... taser.html
Kids! - It now costs more to amuse a child than it once did to educate his father. - It rarely occurs to teenagers that the day will come when they'll know as little as their parents. - Money isn't everything, but it sure keeps the kids in touch. - Never lend your car to anyone to whom you have given birth. - You can learn many things from children ... like how much patience you have. - The first sign of maturity is the discovery that the volume knob also turns to the left. - There are three ways to get things done: 1) do it yourself 2) hire someone to do it 3) forbid your kids to do it - Those who say they "sleep like a baby" haven't got one. - There would be fewer problems with children if they had to chop wood to keep the television set going.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Walter Re: Last Windows Update has a bug Dear Webby: Just rec'd this from a friend- if it's true, might be worth a humor letter note. ________________________________________- If you're religious about letting Microsoft update your PC -- and you use ZoneAlarm -- your system might not let you access the Internet. Tuesday's update from Microsoft included KB951748, a fix for a Domain Name System (DNS) security flaw in Windows XP. Using ZoneAlarm? Don't install the KB951748 update. What's The Problem? The update conflicts with the free version of ZoneAlarm, so if you install the update, the next time you boot the system, you won't have Internet access. There's a simple enough work-around -- uninstall the update. Some users have changed ZoneAlarm's settings from high to medium in order to resolve the problem. That's easy, sure, but not if you're locked out of the Internet and can't read this. If you have a buddy that you know uses ZA, do something you haven't done since discovering e-mail: Give him or her a call (they'll undoubtedly be surprised and probably won't recognize your voice). Walter Thanks Walter! I got a few letters from people today, who had to restore Windows to before Tuesday's bug fix update.This seems to explain why they had to do that. I know it was a sloppy update that didn't re-start everything that had been running, but I didn't realize just how sloppy it was. Have FUN! Dear Webby

A father was reading his paper one day when his son came in and said, "Dad, will you take me to the zoo tomorrow?" His father said, "No. If they really want you, they will come and get you."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Ironing Tip: Heavily Wrinkled Jeans For heavily wrinkled jeans, iron them on a damp towel. It will create steam on both sides and iron the jeans much faster. This also works well on thick cotton clothing, like sweatshirts.

A teacher asked her students to draw a picture of their favorite Old Testament story, and as she moved around the class, she saw there were many wonderful drawings being done. Then she came across Johnny who had drawn an old man driving an old car. In the back seat were two passengers, both scantily dressed. "It's a lovely picture," said the teacher, "but which story does it tell?" Johnny seemed surprised at the question. "Well," he exclaimed, "doesn't it say in the BIBLE that God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden in a Fury? That's a Plymouth Fury just like our neighbor has on blocks in front of his trailer!"
