What stopped the riots in England?

The police credit the wisdom of the politicians for beeing too
busy making speeches and claiming credit and not having time 
left over for interfering with police.

What was new and different was the extremely fast organization
of racial vigilante groups, who chased the yobs out of their 
areas and dispersed them. 

Yes, racial! 
When the yobs saw solid lines of Sikhs, not masked, but carrying
baseball bats and pick handles, they ran. The same with groups
of Muslims, and also mixed groups of immigrants, who simply 
did not allow looting and burning and rioting in their neighborhoods, 
and showed the yobs, that they were a lot more serious about 
neighborhood protection, than the yobs were for recreational

A man was eating a meal at a restaurant. He checks his pockets and leaves his tip -- three pennies. As he strides toward the door, his waitress muses, only half to herself, "You know, you can tell a lot about a man by the tip he leaves." The man turns around, curiosity getting the better of him. "Oh, really? Tell me, what does my tip say?" "Well, this penny tells me you're a thrifty man." Barely able to conceal his pride, the man utters, "Hmm, true enough." "And this penny, it tells me you're a bachelor." Surprised at her perception, he says, "Well, that's true, too." "And the third penny tells me that your father was one, too."

The old town blacksmith realised he couldn't work so hard anymore. He picked out strong young Chuck Deville to become his apprentice. The old fellow was impatient and exacting. "Don't ask me a lot of questions," he told Chuck, "Just do whatever I tell you to do." One day the old blacksmith took an iron out of the forge and laid it on the anvil. "Get the hammer over there," he said. "When I nod my head, hit it real good and hard." Chuck is no longer an apprentice.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Thomas Fortenberry, 30, Pasadena Honey-Soaked Naked Girls Were Filmed By Pastor Statute of limitations saves Texan pastor from prosecution AUGUST 8--Using a hidden video camera, a Texas man filmed four naked, honey-drenched teenage girls while they showered at a church in 2007, where he worked as a youth pastor. But since the statute of limitations has already expired, prosecutors today were forced to dismiss felony charges lodged against Thomas Fortenberry, who allegedly did the surreptitious filming in November 2007 at the Greater Harvest Community Church in Pasadena. The 30-year-old Fortenberry, investigators alleged, organized a “Fear Factor” game that included honey being poured over four girls he had picked to participate. After the contest, Fortenberry instructed the minors that they “could take a shower and wash the honey” off their bodies. It was at this point that he allegedly videotaped the four teenagers with a camera he had hidden in the church bathroom. Investigators learned about the filming from one of the girls, who eventually went on to date Fortenberry. “When they became closer and it looked like they might be married,” Fortenberry, pictured above, told the victim, now 21, “that he had secretly videotaped her taking a shower” at the church. The woman, who was 17 at the time of the “Fear Factor” incident, added that Fortenberry confessed to secretly videotaping three other girls (two 15-year-olds and a 17-year-old). When confronted by a police officer, Fortenberry would not deny having filmed the teenagers. “The defendant would only say that he has done things that he should not have done.” Either way, Texas prosecutors today announced that they could not pursue charges against Fortenberry since the incident occurred more than three years ago, beyond the statute of limitations for the improper photography/visual recording count. The felony complaints, which were filed against Fortenberry on August 4, were dismissed today by the Harris County District Attorney’s office.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Calla Re: Making icons Dear Webby I need to make a bunch of icons for vision impaired people. Yes, I know there are tons of icons hidden in Windows and wherever, but I have to make new ones. What program do you recommend for that? The machines are all XP. Calla Dear Calla Icons are just .bmp pictures renamed to .ico Paint your icons 32 x 32 pixels, save them as .BMP files, and then rename them by using the file explorer to .ICO. Then you can highlight a shortcut, select properties, chanege Icon and select your just made .ico picture. There are programs available for making icons, some quite expensive, but all you really need is any graphics program, that will let you save files as .BMP. Have FUN! DearWebby

Once upon a time there was a Prince who, through no fault of his own, was cast under a spell by an evil witch. The curse was that the Prince could speak only one word each year. However, he could save up the words so that if he did not speak for a whole year, then the following year he was allowed to speak two words (this was before the time of letter writing or sign language). One day he met a beautiful woman (ruby lips, golden hair, sapphire eyes,) and fell madly in love. With the greatest difficulty he decided to refrain from speaking for two whole years so that he could look at her and say, "my darling," But, at the end of the two years he wished to tell her that he loved her. Because of this he waited three more years without speaking (bringing the total number of silent years to 5). But, at the end of these five years he realized that he had to ask her to marry him. So, he waited ANOTHER four years without speaking. Finally as the ninth year of silence ended, his joy knew no bounds. Leading the lovely lady to the most secluded and romantic place in that beautiful royal garden the prince heaped a hundred red roses on her lap, knelt before her, and taking her hand in his, said huskily, "My darling, I love you! Will you marry me?" And the lady tucked a strand of golden hair behind a dainty ear, opened her sapphire eyes in wonder, and parting her ruby lips, said, "Pardon?" So he threw her into the moat and married her deaf sister, who did not expect any speeches.

A police car pulled up in front of grandma Bessie's house, and grandpa got out. The polite policeman explained that the elderly gentleman said that he was lost in the park... and couldn't find his way home. "Morris," said grandma, "You've been going to that park for over 30 years! How come you get lost today?" Leaning close to grandma, so that the policeman couldn't hear, grandpa whispered, "I wasn't lost . . . I was just too tired to walk home."

Thanks to Tina for this story: In my husband's work for a cable-television company, he encounters illegal hookups that drive up costs for other customers. One day he arrived at a repair job just as the homeowner was pulling into the driveway. She pointed the way to the den, where the tv was located, and then walked out to get the mail. As my husband approached the tv, he saw a note taped to the screen. It read: "Don't forget to hide the descramblers before the cable guy comes. Love, Tom."

Thanks to Km for this one: Part of my job as a public-health nurse is teaching new parents how to care for their infants. As I was demonstrating how to wrap a newborn, a young Asian couple turned to me and said, "You mean we should wrap the baby like an egg roll?" Yes, I replied, that was a good analogy. "I don't know how to make egg rolls," another mother said anxiously. "Can I wrap mine like a burrito?"
