Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday,May 9

I went to Walmart to buy a battery for my phone. Just a
regular, cheap portable phone, that I had bought at Walmart
a few years ago.

"Oh, we don't sell batteries for the phones we sell. Otherwise
people just buy batteries instead of new phones."
Now I am looking for a store, where they are not quite that 
sleazy.

Have FUN!

> Thanks to Mona for this: I was having trouble with the idea of turning 30 and was oversensitive to any signs of advancing age. When I found a prominent gray hair in my bangs, I pointed to my forehead. "Have you seen this?" I indignantly asked my husband. "What?" he asked. "The wrinkles?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Jami Toler, 27 in Phoenix, Arizona Charged With Pretending To Have Cancer To Raise Money For Breast Implants Jami Toler, a 27-year-old Phoenix woman was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly faked having cancer to raise money for breast implants. According to Mesa Police, in August of 2011, Toler told her co-workers at Hallmark Hospice that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and that she needed a double-mastectomy. She also stated that she would need to have her breasts augmented, and that she was unable to come up with the money needed for the surgeries. Toler asked her co-workers and family members to raise money for her medical expenses, so they held fund-raisers and deposited $8,000 to an account opened by Toler. In November, Toler used most of the money to pay for breast implants, but did not receive any treatment for her alleged breast cancer. Investigators say co-workers became suspicious when Toler missed work and was unable to provide a doctor's note when she returned from medical leave. Detectives looked at her medical records and was unable to find any indication that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer or received cancer treatment of any kind. After being exposed as a fraud, Toler quit her job and began working at a car dealership, where she was apprehended. Toler was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on felony fraud and theft charges. She was released and ordered to wear an ankle monitor. She was also told not to contact the 17 co-workers she lied to.
Tech Support Pits: From: Terry Re: Blacklist or filters? Dear Webby, What is better for controlling spam, blacklisting, or filters? Terry Dear Terry Whenever you spot a pattern, make a filter. Filters are permanent. Your blacklist grows large and unwieldy very quickly, but is usually quite useless, since spammers never re-use the same forged sending address anyway, except for your own address. The only difference you'll notice when you dump your blacklist, is that the program works faster. Filters can work on the body of the email, not just on the usually forged sender address, and they do that, no matter how misleading the subject line is. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Spray Bottle With Diluted Dish Soap To save on dish soap, fill a spray bottle one-quarter full of soap and top it off with water, give the mixture a good shake to mix well, and close the bottle. Spraying this on dishes cuts grease and saves a little money. By duckie-do from Cortez, CO That is a fast way to find out, which dish soaps have already been diluted and relabled. A quart of Simple Green Automotive makes 60 quarts of quite powerful dishsoap, and has a fresh mint smell. Non-toxic. I have used it for decades. Have FUN!

Thanks to Dave for this one: I recall a time when my son was about 18 months old. I had him strapped in a backpack and was rushing to catch the bus. Apparently I mis-stepped and fell down an entire flight of stairs, (13 to be exact). I was bruised, bleeding and I had torn my jeans ... but my main concern was, naturally, for my child. My fears were alleviated though, when from behind me I heard a gleeful giggle followed by, "Do it again, Daddy!"

Thanks to Annie for this story: While picking up a prescription, I noticed that the woman who gave me my medication was wearing a beautiful mother's ring. "I love your ring," I said. "It's very similar to mine." And I held out my hand to show her. Each ring had three birthstones. "You have three children too?" I asked. "Well, no," the woman replied. "When my daughter picked this out for me, she liked the rings with three settings the best. So I have birthstones for two daughters, and this one," she said while pointing to the center gem, "is for the dog."
