An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Tina Sandlin, 35, Southport, Florida Jailed After Cutting Off Pet Rabbit's Head In Front Of Two Horrified Children Tina Sandlin, a 35-year-old Florida woman was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly cut off the head of a family's pet rabbit in front of two horrified children. According to the Bay County Sheriff's Office, Sandlin called two children out of their bedrooms on July 15, held their pet rabbit by its ears and then used a knife to cut off the animal's head while the children watched. Investigators say the children were so upset, it took a while for them to share with their father what had happened. Deputies were sent to a Southport residence on Tuesday to question Sandlin, however she was hiding under a mobile home on Newman Point Road when they arrived. Sandlin was eventually drug out from under the mobile home and taken into custody. Sandlin (who also goes by Tina Byng) was booked into the Bay County Jail and charged with two counts of child abuse/affliction of mental cruelty, felony cruelty to animals and resisting an officer without violence. Sandlin was also apprehended on a warrant for an unrelated DUI case. ------------ Considering those eyes, it is very surprising, that they did not search under that trailer for narcotics and paraphenalia.
Tech Support Pits: From: Mark Re: 3 TB hard drive Dear Webby Tiger has a 3 TeraByte hard drive for $120. That seems almost too good a deal. That is barelo more than what Walmart charges for a 1 TB drive. Is it a good deal? Mark Dear Mark That depends on what you want it for. As a back-up or archive drive it is an excellent deal. However, as an active drive it is a big nuisance. Imagine how long a virus scan or defrag will take on a 3 Terabyte drive! Especially with Windows 7, which slows to a crawl during defrag, you would be doing a lot of cussing. For best results keep the C: drive small, reserved for just the Operating System. Put all your programs onto the E: drive, and data that you produce or receive onto the F: drive. Archive and Back-Up should be on the G: drive, which is unplugged except when you actually back up onto it. With Windows7 every little trick helps, and sound drive management like that makes a huge difference. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Avoid Cleaning Chemicals With Microfiber: I just purchased microfiber towels and a microfiber mop from QVC.com and I love them. You use the towels to clean almost anything without chemicals. Use them slightly wet to clean countertops, your stove, the bathroom sink, etc. I have never been able to get the shower glass to look clean. This works great, I just follow the wet towel with a dry one. Same with windows. NO chemicals. The mop came with a dust mop and a wet mop. You wet mop, with no chemicals and it drys fast! I love them and no wasting paper towels to clean with, and when you are through just throw in the washing machine. Source: QVC.com. I have used Microfiber cloths for about 15 years. Some words of caution: Dry them on the line, not in a dryer, or you will ruin them. After drying them in a dryer, especially with a bounce sheet in it, they are just an ordinary rag. Avoid bleach in the washing machine. It damages the micro fibers. Mild soap or dish soap works best. I use a small microfiber cloth to catch all the drops on me after a shower, and then use the regular towel just to invigorate the skin. Microfiber cloth also works as an excellent spot and stain remover if somebody has a piza or pasta sauce accident. Have FUN!

>Thanks to Sandie for this one: You Don't have To Own A Cat To Appreciate This One A couple was dressed and ready to go out for the evening. They turned, on a night light, turned the answering machine on the phone line, covered their pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. They phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and the couple opened the front door to leave their house. The cat they had put out into the back yard scooted back into the house. They didn't want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird. The wife goes out to the taxi while the husband goes inside to get the cat. The cat runs upstairs, the man in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, the wife doesn't want the driver to know the house will be empty for the night. She explains to the taxi driver that her husband will be out soon "He's just going upstairs to say good-bye to my mother." A few minutes later, the husband gets into the cab. "Sorry I took so long," he says, as they drive away. "Stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. Had to poke her with a mop to get her to come out! She tried to take off so I grabbed her by the neck. Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked. I managed to haul the fat ninny downstairs and throw her out into the back yard!" The cab driver hit a parked car.

Arnold and his wife were cleaning out the attic one day when he came across a ticket from the local shoe repair shop. The date stamped on the ticket showed that it was over eleven years old. They both laughed and tried to remember which of them might have forgotten to pick up a pair of shoes over a decade ago. "Do you think the shoes will still be in the shop?" Arnold asked. "Not very likely," his wife said. "It's worth a try," Arnold said, pocketing the ticket. He went downstairs, hopped into the car, and drove to the store. With a straight face, he handed the ticket to the man behind the counter. With a face just as straight, the man said, "Just a minute. I'll have to look for these." He disappeared into a dark corner at the back of the shop. Two minutes later, the man called out, "Here they are!" "No kidding?" Arnold called back. "That's terrific! Who would have thought they'd still be here after all this time." The man came back to the counter, empty-handed. "They'll be ready Thursday," he said calmly.
