What is the Friends List? 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Saturday, January 5

I have a feeling that HotMail is going to be eliminated
soon. I unsubscribed about a few hundred HotMail users
today, because their newsletter has bounced too many times,
and I still have about two hundred to do.

Online viewing has risen proportionately. We didn't
lose all those people, some will be reading the Humor Letter
at http://webby.com/humor, and some probably 
migrated to Gmail.

If you are still on Hotmail, I would highly recommend
that you get an alternate email address, 
and shift anything important over to that.

Have FUN!

A man was speeding down the highway, feeling secure in a gaggle of cars all traveling at the same speed. However, as they passed a speed trap, he got nailed with an infrared speed detector and was pulled over. The officer handed him the citation, received his signature and was about to walk away when the man asked, "Officer, I know I was speeding, but I don't think it's fair - there were plenty of other cars around me who were going just as fast, so why did *I* get the ticket?" "Ever go fishing?" the policeman suddenly asked the man. "Ummm, yeah..." the startled man replied. The officer grinned and added, "Ever catch *all* the fish?"
A fourth-grade teacher was giving her pupils a lesson in logic. "Here is the situation," she said. "A man is standing up in a boat in the middle of a river, fishing. He loses his balance, falls in, and begins splashing and yelling for help. His wife hears the commotion, knows he can't swim, and runs down to the bank. Why do you think she ran to the bank?" A girl raised her hand and asked, "To draw out all his savings before the inlaws get at them ?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to June Ortega, 21, Albuquerque Jailed for killing her 1 yr old baby Reported by Carole Albuquerque police have charged a mother with killing her baby, who was only days away from her first birthday. The child, Nevaeh, died right before Christmas, but now investigators have determined the injuries made her death a murder. June Ortega, 21, appeared in court Friday. Police said the child's autopsy uncovered multiple skull fractures and blood in the brain. Doctors said the injuries appeared to be from being hit with a blunt object. “This child had apparently suffered ongoing child abuse and the results were astounding,” Albuquerque police officer Tasia Martinez said. “Detectives did find a screwdriver in the playpen, tucked in the side of the playpen. We don't if (her skull fractures) are related, but the doctors say this wasn't an accident.” Police were called to Ortega’s apartment on Dec. 22 because the child wasn’t breathing. Officers said the child’s cause of death wasn’t clear at the time, so Ortega wasn’t arrested then. Martinez said police hope this tragic case is a wake-up call to the community to prevent and report child abuse. “We don't want things to escalate to the point where anyone is harmed, much less a sweet innocent child that hasn't had the chance to experience her first Christmas or her first birthday,” Martinez said.
Tech Support Pits From: Lee Re: Friends List Dear Webby Some time ago, when my daughter had problems getting the Humor Letter, you suggested having her put humor@webby.com into her friends list or white list. I'm not too sharp on computer lingo, please explain friends list and white list. Thanks Lee Dear Lee All spam control programs and most email programs have a list of authorized addresses. Some call it address book, some call it White-List, some call it Friends-List. When an address is in that list, then mail from that address is not checked with the regular junk-mail filters. Have FUN! DearWebby

From Candy My engineer husband is meticulous but mild-mannered. While our new house was being built, he would leave notes for the workmen, politely calling their attention to mistakes or oversights. Two weeks before we were to move in, the floors still were not finished, the bathrooms not tiled, nor were necessary fixtures installed. I was sure that the work would never be completed in time. However, on moving day, we found that the house was ready to receive us. Curious as to how this miracle had been accomplished, I went and checked where my husband always left his notes for the workmen. Posted prominently on the living room wall was my husband's last note: "After January 5, all work will be supervised by my wife and 5 children."

>From Ken My uncle Joe and his best buddy, Bubba, went hunting a couple of weeks ago. Somehow they got lost. Uncle Joe reassured his buddy, though. "Don't worry. All we have to do is shoot into the air three times, stay where we are, and someone will find us." They shot in the air three times, but no one came. After a while, they tried it again. Still no response. When they decided to try once more, Bubba said, "It better work this time. We're down to our last three arrows."
