One day, Doug was playing ball in the house, which was strictly against the rules, and he accidentally broke a vase in the living room. "Oh, no, my mom's gonna kill me!", he thought desperately. He frantically tried to fix it, any way he could. But tape, glue, even Superglue wouldn't hold all the shards together. He finally left the pieces in a pile on the table, and went to hide in his room. Soon, his mother came home, and he heard her calling him. "Doug, do you know who broke my vase? It's in here all in pieces!" Doug tried to drum up his courage, but at the last minute, he found himself answering, "No, Mom, I don't know." He cringed, waiting for her answer. "That's funny," she said, appearing at his door. "I wanted to thank whoever it was. I've never liked that ugly thing, and if it had not been a gift from your daddy's mom, I would have broken it myself years ago!"
When the new patient was settled comfortably on the couch, the psychiatrist began his therapy session. "I'm not aware of your problem," the doctor said. "So perhaps, you should start at the very beginning." "Of course," replied the patient. "In the beginning, I created the Heavens and the Earth . . ."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Jonathon Sullivan, 31, Tewksbury, New Hampshire Picked The Wrong Spot To Burn Off A Buzz Reported by The Weekly Vice Jonathon Sullivan, a 31-year-old Tewksbury man was jailed Tuesday after he allegedly drove drunk to a police station parking lot, where he proceeded to catch a few ZZZ's. According to Windham Police, a dispatcher was viewing live surveillance video of the police station parking lot at about 1:45 a.m. when she spotted a suspicious vehicle parked in the employee parking lot with its engine still running. An officer sent to check on the vehicle found Sullivan asleep in the driver's seat. Officers woke him up and administered a field sobriety test, which he failed. He was apprehended at the scene. Sullivan was booked into jail and charged with driving while intoxicated. He was released after posting a $500 bail. Tech Support Pits From: Steff Re: McAfee Update Dear Webby, I do hope that the injections are helping your eyes. Every time you have to go I am amazed at how much courage it takes - I doubt that I could do it. I have McAfee software on my computer, and I have been using Firefox instead of Explorer, but lately I have been getting a message from McAfee that the updates cannot be installed until I get a more recent version of Internet Explorer. I downloaded the IE7 and IE8 blockers that you have on your "tools" page and I have had no problem with McAfee updates until about a month ago. I know that you use McAfee and you do not use Internet Explorer, so have you had any similar messages? Do you have any suggestions? The simpler the better since I mostly use my computer for email and am lost with anything more technical. Thanks for all of your tech help, and my doctors appreciate the jokes. They are disappointed when I don't have one to tell them at the end of my appointments. Stay well. Steff Dear Steff Currently, and unfortunately, I am using Windows 7. Until the day my XP died, I have used only Firefox there too. I did a whole bunch of searching and it looks like Microsoft has gained control of McAfee. Since then, you need to have IE7 or IE8 installed for Microsoft&McAfee updates. You are allowed to use Firefox for regular work, but for Microsoft&McAfee updates, you have to have IE7 or IE8 ON the machine. It doesn't use it, of course, but it checks if you have it ON the machine. I even wasted almost an hour waiting for and arguing with the Taliban at Microsoft&McAfee. They told me exactly the same. The good news from Microsoft directly is that even with the blocker installed, you can manually download and install IE8. Just download and install it, so that Microsoft&McAfee will stop sniveling. You don't have to actually use it. Also, the current version of IE8 seems to be harmless and not causing any problems. Sorry to be the bearer of sad news, but unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about that. Have FUN! DearWebby

My friend's husband always teases her about her lack of in- terest in household chores. One day he came home with a gag gift, a refrigerator magnet that read: "Martha Stewart doesn't live here." The next day he came home to find the magnet holding up a slip of paper. The note read: "Neither does Bob Vila."
