"You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind." --- Socratex
A woman answered her front door and saw a little boy holding a list. "Excuse me, ma'am," he said, "I'm on a scavenger hunt, and I still need three grains of wheat, a pork chop bone and a piece of used carbon paper to earn a dollar." "Wow," the woman said. "Who sent you on such a challenging scavenger hunt?" The little boy said, "My baby sitter's boyfriend."
The teacher asked Little Johnny to use the words "defeat," "defense," and "detail" in a sentence. Little Johnny said, "The rabbit cut across the field and defeat went over defense before detail."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jose Alejandro Romero, 17 in Austin, Texas Sent in by Teresa Attempted robbery with caulk gun Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man accused of injuring a gas station clerk while attempting to rob him - with a caulk gun. The suspect fled the scene in the company of a transgender prostitute he’d picked up earlier in the evening, according to an affidavit issued by the Travis County Sheriff’s Office. The affidavit says the clerk, Johnnie Limuel, 68, told police that a man dressed in women’s clothing entered the Speedy Stop on and bought a pack of cigarettes and $5 worth of gas at 4 am. Just after he walked out to a red pickup truck at a gas pump, another man — who police later identified as Jose Alejandro Romero, walked into the store with a caulk gun partially visible under a white t-shirt, the affidavit said. The man pointed the caulk gun at Limuel and demanded money. Limuel told police he thought it was a joke when he saw the caulk gun, but the assailant continued to demand money, the affidavit said. Romero struck Limuel with the caulk gun after he could not open the cash drawer, the affidavit said, then Limuel struck back, hitting the man with a plastic trash can. The assailant then fled the store without any money and sped off in the red pickup truck, the affidavit said. The other man, later identified as Kenneth Williams, a transgender prostitute, told police that Romero had picked him up from the street before the attempted robbery, the affidavit said. Williams spent the night driving around with Romero as he got money from several locations including his mobile home to buy and smoke crack, the affidavit said. Romero apparently also tried to rob some immigrants, but because of the late hour, they didn't see any and that did not happen. It was during this time that Williams suggested they stop at a gas station, because he wanted to buy cigarettes, the affidavit said. Police confirmed Romero’s identity yesterday when they visited his mobile home where his mother also lives, the affidavit said. Police have not arrested Romero, who has been charged with aggravated robbery. However, they got his red truck and the caulking gun.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Bob RE: Icon for Gmail Hi Webby, I downloaded gmail and like it, however I do have two problems: 1- I tried to set a ICON on my desktop by right clicking all over the gmail page we no success. Is it possible to set an ICON on the desk top and if so HOW? 2- I tried to forward an email to a friend and could not locate a forward button on the email page. Searched the settings and come up with the need for a confirmation code before I can forward. This is OK when I want to forward to one email address but I am unwilling to go through this process when a have to send an email to several addresses. Now I send all forwards to me at my Outlook Express email so I can then send it to many addresses. Any suggestions. Bob Daily Voter Dear Bob 1- Go to gmail drag the tiny icon from the left of the browser address bar onto an empty corner of the desktop. 2- Forwarding is usually in a pull-down of the REPLY button. I have never seen a call for a confirmation code in there. Keep in mind that Gmail is a Webmail, and as such is very basic. It is from ground up designed for peeking, and leaving stuff on the server, until you get back to your main machine, where you have a full featured POP program. You CAN set gmail to POP, and handle it with a full featured professional POP program like Eudora or Pegasus or Outlook, or a "Lite" POP program like Outlook Depressed. Check the Gmail help how to do that, once you have installed one of those POP programs. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Less Than the Recommended Laundry Detergent I've been reading the comments from the ThriftyFun community. Many of us have had problems due to the new liquid laundry detergents, with there being an excessive amount of soap left in the final rinse cycle. Don't bother to follow the manufacturer's instructions since they want you to use more than what is really necessary to get your clothes clean. The faster you finish the bottle, the more you have to purchase. The detergent companies are not stupid, they want your money and want it fast. I experimented with a number of my wash loads and have discovered for myself that 4 tablespoons equivalent to 1/4 cup of liquid laundry detergent is what you will need for one wash load, no matter if the wash load is small or large. Repeatedly I checked the rinse cycle and there was no soap left in sight, just rinse water. Try it yourself!

A man who had just undergone a very complicated operation kept complaining about a bump on his head and a terrible headache. Since his operation had been an abdominal one, there was no earthly reason why he should be complaining of a headache. Finally his nurse, fearing that the man might be suffering from some post-operative shock, if not a psychopsymatic phase, spoke to the doctor about it. "Don't worry about a thing." the doctor told the nurse, looking somewhat amused. "He really does have a bump on his head... The operation took longer than planned, and about halfway through it we ran out of anesthetic, so Miss Beasley gonged him with a bedpan."

A man is concentrating diligently on the papers on his desk when a co-worker comes up. "Say, you want to hit the golf course this afternoon?" he asks. "Sorry," the man says, "I can't." "Why not?" "The doctor tells me I can't play." "Well," says the co-worker, "we all know that, that's why everybody want's to play against you!"
