In a small town, farmers of the community had gotten together to discuss some important issues. About midway through the meeting, a wife of one of the farmers stood up and spoke her piece. One of the old farmers stood up and said, "What does she know about anything? I would like to ask her if she knows how many toes a pig has?" Quick as a flash, the woman replied, "Take off your boots, Bobo, and count them yourself!"

As I left the supermarket, I noticed two little kids, maybe six or seven years old, selling candy bars in front of the store to raise money for their school band. "I'll buy a chocolate bar on one condition," I said to one of the boys, as I gave him the money, "That you eat it for me." He shook his head. "I can't," he said. "Why not?" Looking me in the eye, he responded gravely, "Because I'm not supposed to take candy from strangers."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Fredlicia Porterfield, 25, in North, SC Jailed After Setting Bed On Fire As Boyfriend Slept Fredlicia Porterfield, a 25-year-old South Carolina woman was jailed Monday after she allegedly set fire to a bed while her boyfriend slept in it. According to the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to the couple's home Sunday when Porterfield punched her boyfriend and then chased him out of the house with a kitchen knife. Porterfield told arriving deputies that she and her boyfriend got into an argument when she sent him a text message asking when he would be home, and the boyfriend responded in an aggressive, vulgar manner. She also stated that her boyfriend came home, grabbed her by the neck and began choking her. When deputies checked the boyfriend's cell phone, they found no text messages that substantiated the woman's story. Porterfield also did not appear injured, so deputies determined that she was the aggressor in the incident and left to seek a warrant for her arrest. Deputies were called back to the couple's residence after receiving reports that the couple's house was on fire. Investigators arrived to find the home completely engulfed in flames. The boyfriend told investigators that he was awakened by Porterfield who demanded that he "get out of her bed." Porterfield then allegedly poured kerosene around the bed and set it on fire. Firefighters were unable to subdue the fire, which inevitably reduced the home to smoldering rubble. Porterfield was booked into jail and charged with third-degree arson and criminal domestic violence.
Tech Support Pits: From: Melody Re: Internet Explorer acting funny Dear Webby My internet explorer on my computer has started acting funny and not working right or not even working at all. I am still able to get my Yahoo and such another way but was just wondering, is Internet Explorer just not good at all? Also, is is alright if I leave my self signed on at all times as I am the only one who uses this computer. Thanks for any help you can give me. Melody Dear Melody My hunch is that the problem is due to the last Windows Update. Even FireFox locks up occasionally since then. Internet Explorer, which is much more fragile and as a Microsoft product, is even more affected by their updates. Try using FireFox or Chrome, and reboot Windows daily until the current update has been fixed. Yes, sure you can leave yourself signed in at all times, if you have decent protection, for example McAfee. You can still get it at a big discount if you go to http://webby.com/mac Have FUN!

A company offered tours through the historic district, led by guides dressed in Colonial clothing. While leading a group, one of the guides, tripped and fell, breaking his wrist. He went to the hospital, and as he sat waiting in the emergency room, a policeman walked by. Doing a double take at him in his 18th-century garb he asked, "Just how long have you been waiting?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Rust From Tools Remove rust from garden tools with steel wool dipped in kerosene or turpentine. Then oil the tools lightly to prevent the rust from forming again. Source: My grandparents did this. By duckie-do from Cortez, CO A better and more permanent method is to use a wire brush, either hand held or rotary, and clean down to bare metal. Then wipe the metal with Naval Jelly. "Naval Jelly" is just jellied phosphoric acid and turns the surface into battleship grey iron phophate. Iron Phosphate is an oxide, and can not oxidize any further. It has gone as far as iron can go. Phosphoric acid is quite safe. It is used in a lot of soft drinks. You can achieve the same effect by spilling classic Coca Cola over rusty metal.. The wire brushing is mainly to remove dirt, that hides rust underneath, and to remove lose rust, that hides unprotected metal underneath it. This should actually be done at the end of the season, before the tools are put away for the winter. Have FUN!

Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your children. Insanity is hereditary. You get it from your kids. I love to give homemade gifts...which one of my kids do you want? You spend the first 2 years of your kids life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 telling them to sit down and be quiet.

> From Joyce Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with those expensive, double pane, energy efficient kind, but this week I got a call from the contractor, complaining his work had been completed a year ago and I had yet to pay for them. Boy oh boy, did we go around and around! Just because I'm a blonde does not mean I'm automatically stupid. So, I proceeded to tell him just what his fast-talking sales guy had told me last year, namely, that in one year, the windows would pay for themselves. I told him that if those windows did not pay for themselves, I was going to sue them for breach of promise! There was silence on the other end of the line, so I just hung up. I have not heard anything back. Guess I won that stupid argument
