Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, October 28

Last night's 7.7 earth quake in BC luckily did not seem to
cause any injury or damage. Some of you probably wondered 
where that "Haida Gwaii", that the news mentioned, is. 
That is the new (since 2010) and politically correct name 
now for the Queen Charlotte islands. Eventually the maps
will be showing the new name.

Have FUN!

Lory, was driving down the street in a sweat because she had an important doctors appointment and couldn't find a parking place. Looking up toward heaven, she said "Lord, take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of my life and give up margaritas." Miraculously, a parking place appeared. Lory looked up again and said, "Never mind. I found one."
Not long after his marriage, Joe Jr and his father Joe Sr, met for lunch. "Well, son," asked Joe Sr, "how is married life treating you?" "Not very well, I'm afraid," sighed junior. "It seems I married a nun." "A nun?" his father questioned. "That's right," moaned Joe Jr. "None in the morning, none at night, and none at all unless I beg!" Joe Sr nodded knowingly and slapped his boy on the back a couple of times. "Why don't we all get together for dinner tonight and have a nice talk?" Young Joe smiled, "Say, Dad, that's a great idea!" "Fine," replied Joe Sr, "I'll call home and tell the Mother Superior to set two extra plates."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Amanda Barker, 32, Mannington, W. Va. Cheerleading Coach - Charged With Having Sex With 16-Year-Old Student Reported by The Weekly Vice Amanda Barker, a 32-year-old cheerleading coach at North Marion High School has been jailed after she allegedly had sex with a 16-year-old student. According to police, an investigation was launched after a student reported the alleged sexual assault to the school's assistant principal. Investigators say school administrators questioned the boy about the allegations which the boy denied initially. The student then admitted to having sex with Barker on three occasions at her home in Mannington. He went on to say that he spent a lot of time with Barker at her home because she was a friend of the family and her husband, Josh Barker, had coached him in soccer. The boy went on to say that Barker performed oral sex on him during each encounter on the couch in her living room. Barker's husband was reportedly asleep in a bedroom when the alleged sex occurred. When investigators questioned Barker, she initially denied the charges but later admitted to them, according to an arrest affidavit. Barker was booked into jail and charged with three counts of child sexual abuse by a person in a position of trust. She was released after posting a $15,000 bond.
Tech Support Pits From: Chris Re: Which cookies are safe? Dear Webby, I have been fanatically getting rid of cookies for many years, but more and more people, especially the banks, tell me to leave them alone and not f***, ahem mess with them. What's the real story? Thanks Chris Dear Chris I agree with the banks. Don't mess with the cookies. In the 90's some sites stored more than necessary information in cookies, which led to abuse. However, by the late 90's everybody had smartened up and cookies became safe. For example, the banks don't store account info or anything confidential in cookies, but IF you have successfully entered your user name and password, then they look for a stashed cookie, that tells them that it is indeed you, and not just somebody, who read the user name and password from where you had written them onto a post-it-note. Without that cookie, they dump your password and make you jump through all kinds of hoops, just to verify it is really you. The same with many other sites, that require you to enter the same old stuff again and again. Leave the cookies alone and the net becomes a much friendlier place. It's not the cookies, it's the places you go to, that should be of concern. Malicious and fraudulent sites don't bother with cookies, they sneak a virus or trojan onto you, or a flakey tool bar, that is difficult to get rid of. When you notice something like that, get outa there fast and don't go back. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Wooden Spoon When Cooking Fudge When making fudge, use a wooden spoon not metal. Heat from the fudge will go to the spoon and it takes longer for the fudge to come to the right stage. By Janette from Parkersburg, WV Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com

A Newfie decides to travel across Canada to see the Pacific Ocean.When he gets to Nanaimo, he likes the place so much that he decides to stay. But first he must find a job. He walks into the MacMillan-Bloedel office and fills out an application as an "Experienced logger." It's his lucky day. They just happen to be looking for someone. But first, the bush foreman takes him for a ride in the bush in the company pickup truck to see how much he knows. The foreman stops the truck on the side of the road and points at a tree. "See that tree over there? I want you to tell me what species it is and how many board feet of lumber it contains." The Newfie promptly answers, "It's a Sitka Spruce and contains 383 board feet of lumber." The foreman is impressed. He puts the truck in motion and stops again about a mile down the road. He points at another tree through the passenger door window. He asks the same question. This time, it's a bigger tree of a different class. "It's a Douglas Fir, it has 690 board feet." says the Newfie. Now the foreman is really impressed. The Newfie has answered quickly and got the answers right without even using a calculator! One more test. They drive a little farther down the road, and the foreman stops again. This time, he points across the road through his driver side window. "And what about that one?" Before the foreman finishes pointing, the Newfie says, "A Yellow cedar, 242 board feet." The foreman spins the truck around and heads back to the office. He's a little annoyrf because he thinks that the Newfie is smarter than he is. As they near the office, the foreman stops the truck, and asks the Newfie to step outside. He hands him a piece of chalk and tells him, "See that tree over there. I want you to mark an X on the front of that tree. "The foreman thinks to himself, "Idiot! How does he know which is the front of the tree? " When the Newfie reaches the tree, he goes around it in a circle while looking at the ground. He then reaches up and places a white X on the trunk. He comes back to the foreman and hands him the chalk. "That is the front of the tree," the Newfie states. The foreman laughs to himself and asks sarcastically, "How in the heck do you know that's the front of the tree?" The Newfie looks down at his feet, while moving the toe of his left boot clockwise in the gravel, replies, "Cuz someone used the back side for an outhouse." He got the job!!

Three golfing partners died in a car wreck and went to heaven. Upon arrival they discover the most beautiful golf course they have ever seen. St. Peter tells them that they are all welcome to play the course, but he cautions them that there is only one rule: Don't hit the ducks. The men all have blank expressions, and finally one of them asks "The ducks?" "Yes", St. Peter replies, "There are millions of ducks walking around the course and if one gets hit, he squawks then the one next to him squawks and soon they're all squawking to beat the band and it really breaks the tranquility. If you hit the ducks, you'll be punished, otherwise everything is yours to enjoy." Upon entering the course, the men noted that there were indeed large numbers of ducks everywhere. Within fifteen minutes, one of the guys hit one of them. The duck squawked, the one next to it squawked and soon there was a deafening roar of duck quacks. St. Peter walked up with an extremely homely woman in tow and asked "Who hit the duck?" The guy who had done it admitted "I did." St. Peter immediately pulled out a pair of handcuffs and cuffed the man's right hand to the homely woman's left hand. "I told you not to hit the ducks," he said. "Now you'll be handcuffed together for eternity." The other two men were very cautious not to hit any ducks, but a couple of weeks later, one of them accidentally did. The quacks were as deafening as before and within minutes St. Peter walked up with an even uglier woman. St.Peter determined which one had hit the duck by the fear in his face and cuffed the man's right hand to the homely woman's left hand. I told you not to hit the ducks," he said. "Now you'll be handcuffed together for eternity." The third man was extremely careful. Some days he wouldn't even move for fear of even nudging a duck. After three months of this he still hadn't hit a duck. St. Peter walked up to the man at the end of the three months and had with him a knock-out gorgeous woman, the most beautiful woman the man had ever seen. St. Peter smiled to the man and then, without a word, handcuffed him to the beautiful woman and walked off. The man, knowing that he would be handcuffed to this woman for eternity, let out a sigh and said "What have I done to deserve this?" The woman responded "I don't know about you, but I hit a duck."
