Linda was with her mother while her older sister was being examined by a dentist. Linda kept herself busy playing with toys in the waiting room until she noticed that her mom was resting, her eyes closed. With about six other patients waiting, Linda marched up to her mother, looked her straight in the face and shook her shoulder. "Mommy," she yelled, "wake up! This is not church!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Julie Root, 27, of East Hampton, CT 2 and 3 year olds in diapers away from home, mom arrested An East Hampton, Connecticut, woman is facing several charges after her 2- and 3-year-old sons were playing in the woods for hours wearing nothing but diapers on Friday morning, police said. Julie Root, 27, was arrested shortly after coming home from work. A neighbor called East Hampton police when she had heard the children playing alone by the road in the rain for at least an hour. When two officers arrived, they found the two small boys walking in the woods on the south side of Flatbrook Road near a stream. The boys were wearing no clothing other than their diapers and they were freezing cold, police said. An ambulance was called and the boys were taken to Marlborough Clinic for a medical evaluation. While all of this was taking place, Root walked up to the scene and said she had returned from working third shift at 7:30 a.m. and had possibly dozed off, allowing the boys to slip out of the house. Root, who is wearing the t-shirt that reads “I Love Weed” in her mug shot, was heavily under the influence of prescription pain medication, police said. The allegedly bad mother said that the boys’ father, Scott Root, was also home but he had been sleeping during the incident. The boys were released to the custody of their father after leaving Marlborough Clinic with no significant medical findings or injuries, police said. Julie Root was released from custody on a $10,000 non-surety bond and is scheduled to appear at Middlesex Superior Court in Middletown, CT., on April 20. She is charged with two counts of risk of injury to a minor and two counts of reckless endangerment.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Julie re: Desktop trashed by Windos update Dear Webby Is there a way to stop Windows update from trashing and reorganizing my desktop? Or at least to restore it? I get so frustrated I could kill, when the required restart after an update messes everything up. When I reboot normally once a month, everything stays in place, so why does an update restart screw everything up? Sorry, didn't mean to yell and while at you, but you are the only one I know who actually listens. Julie Dear Julie I know how you feel! You are definitely not the only one who is severely annoyed by that problem. Go to my Tool Box at and download Save My Desktop Hit that and save your desktop after each time you add or move icons, or at least before doing a Windows update. When the dektop gets trashed, you can hit that icon, after you find where Windows shuffled it to, and hit it, but select RESTORE instead of SAVE. Another trick that seems to help is to shut all programs down before doing the silly update mandated restart. The problem seems to be with interrupted shutdowns. If the shutdown is stopped because of an unsaved file, then that virtually guarantees that your desktop gets trashed. Instead of saving a snapshot to disk, as if you had told it to hibernate, Windows just loses it's marbles. Best of course is to do both. Save the desktop AND shut down every program before letting Windows do that nuisance reboot. Have FUN! DearWebby
There's a little fellow named Junior who hangs out at Tim Alley's Grocery Store. The owner Tim doesn't know what Junior's problem is, but the boys like to tease him. They say he is two bricks shy of a load, or two pickles shy of a barrel. To prove it, sometimes they offer Junior his choice between a nickel and a dime. He always takes the nickel, they say, because it's bigger. One day after Junior grabbed the nickel, Tim got him off to one side and said, "Junior, those boys are making fun of you. They think you don't know the dime is worth more than the nickel. Are you grabbing the nickel because it's bigger, or what?" Junior replied, "Nah, if I took the dime, they'd quit giving me nickles!"

Two elderly women were out driving in a large car-both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red but they just went on through. The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself "I must be losing it, I could have sworn we just went through a red light." After a few more minutes they came to another intersection and the light was red again and again they went right though. This time the woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous and decided to pay very close attention to the road and the next intersection to see what was going on. At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was definitely red and they went right through. So she turned to the other woman and said, "Mildred! Did you know we just ran through three red lights in a row! You could have killed us!" Mildred turned to her and said "Oh, am I driving?"

And here is a real groaner of a pun: Recently a guy in Paris nearly got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre. However, after planning the crime, getting in and out past security, he was captured only 2 blocks away when his Ford Econoline ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a daring and otherwise brilliant crime and then make such an obvious error... ... He replied: "I 'ad no Monet to buy Degas to make de Van Gogh."...
