Good Morning,  !
Today is Friday, May 18
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

It didn't quite snow today, but I have felt warmer at times,
when it did snow. That is no cause for alarm. We usually 
have a few really cold days in the middle of May.

The same happens in Europe too, and has for many centuries.
There each day has a saint and some in May are called the 
Ice Saints, because on their  days they usually have a frost 
or snow.

Have FUN!

Last Sunday, the Gospel was the one about the ten bridesmaids. The five good bridesmaids remembered to take plenty of oil for their lamps; five bad bridesmaids did not. The priest at our church is always very fiery and his sermons always end on a high note. Last Sunday the priest ended with... "Where would you rather be? In the light with the five good bridesmaids or in the dark with the five bad bridesmaids?" It seems my honest answer was not what he wanted to hear.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Robert Lyzenga, 55 in Lafayette, Indiana Pastor arrested for hiding cameras in washrooms MAY 15--An Indiana pastor is facing a voyeurism charge for allegedly placing hidden cameras disguised as air fresheners in the women’s bathroom of the Lafayette church he had headed for the last decade. Robert Lyzenga, 55, was arrested last week by the Tippecanoe County Police Department on the felony count. He was freed from custody after posting $5000 bond. The voyeurism probe began last month when cops were dispatched to the Sunrise Christian Reform Church, where a woman reported that an air freshener had fallen off the door inside a stall. “The back of the air freshener had come off, and she saw there was a camera inside,” cops reported in an affidavit filed in support of a court application to search Lyzenga’s home and church office. After discovering the hidden camera, the woman checked a second stall and found another air freshener containing a hidden camera. A third stall “also had an air freshener inside the door, but no camera was in that one.” An examination of the devices revealed that “the three air fresheners were not really air fresheners. They are plastic rectangular boxes, and two of them had been modified to hold the cameras which were discovered inside,” Detective Robert Goldsmith reported. All three boxes “had stickers on them with ‘Glade Air-o-matic’ on the stickers,” which appeared to be homemade. A review of memory cards removed from the purported air fresheners showed that they contained footage of two adult women and a female juvenile “using the restroom.” A church worker told cops the air fresheners first appeared in the stalls in February, raising the possibility that many other women were videotaped (and the footage was downloaded from the hidden cameras). The examination of one memory card showed a “brief video recording in an office area” at the point where the hidden camera was picked up, turned on, and apparently placed inside the plastic box. In an effort to match up the video with a specific area, cops last Wednesday returned to the church, where they told Lyzenga that they wanted to take a look around the building. Lyzenga showed them around to several offices, but officers made no matches. That is when Goldsmith “asked about Lyzenga’s office,” according to the affidavit. Goldsmith “noticed Lyzenga was very nervous” as he accompanied the investigator into the space. The pastor’s office, Goldsmith reported, appeared identical to the office seen on one of the videos (down to a Superman mouse pad on the desk). Lyzenga, pictured in the above mug shot, was subsequently busted in connection with the surreptitious bathroom filming. Married for 30 years, the father of three was fired from his pastor’s post immediately following his May 10 arrest.
Tech Support Pits: From: Melody RE: Screen Savers Dear Webby, I look forward to your humor letter everyday. My question is about those active or live action screensavers I keep getting notices for. I would like to try one but am not sure about it. I have heard that they damage your screen in the long run. Is there anything I should know before I try them. Any help you can give me is much appreciated. I look forward to many more days of enjoying your humor letters. Melody Dear Melody They don't damage your screen. However, most, especially the "free" ones, usually include spyware and adware to pay for them. Some of them are extremely difficult to get rid of. If you just need something to entertain the cats while you are away, just use one of the built in screensavers. You can use SlideShow and set it to use a folder, where you have pictures that the cats like. That is perfectly safe, even if you let it run while you are on vacation. Have FUN! DearWebby

Officers at a military installation were being lectured about a new computer. The training officer said the computer was able to withstand nuclear and chemical attacks, drop from 50,000 feet, get run over by a tank and small arms fire. Suddenly, he saw that one of the officers had a cup of coffee and yelled, "There will be no eating or drinking in this room! You'll have to get rid of that coffee." The officer said meekly, "Sure, but why?" "Because a coffee spill could ruin the keyboard."

Standing on the sidelines during a football game at my son's high school, I saw one of the players take a hard hit. He tumbled to the ground and didn't move. We grabbed our first- aid gear and rushed out onto the field. The coach picked up the young man's hand and urged, "Son, can you hear me? Squeeze once for yes and twice for no."

Although we were being married in New Hampshire, I wanted to add a touch of my home state, Kansas, to the wedding. My fiancee, explaining this to a friend, said that we were planning to have wheat rather than rice thrown after the ceremony. Our friend thought for a moment. Then he said solemnly, "It's a good thing she's not from Idaho."
