No human thing is of serious importance. --- Plato (427 BC - 347 BC) Humor is just another defense against the universe. --- Mel Brooks (1926 - ) Aristotle was famous for knowing everything. He taught that the brain exists merely to cool the blood and is not involved in the process of thinking. This is true only of certain persons. --- Will Cuppy

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Edwin Esmurria, 30, Largo, Florida Registered Child Sex Offender Jailed for molesting toddler Reported by The Weekly Vice Edwin Esmurria, a 30-year-old Florida man, was jailed Saturday after he allegedly broke into Pinellas County home and molested a 3-year-old girl. According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, Esmurria entered the home early Saturday morning, climbed into bed with a 3-year-old girl and then proceeded to molest the child. The girl's brother, who was sleeping in the same room, ran to his mother's room for help when he awoke to find Esmurria in the room. Investigators say the mother attacked Esmurria, and a fight ensued. When a second person entered the room and intervened, Esmurria fled the scene. Deputies tracked Esmurria down and took him into custody. Esmurria, a registered sex offender, was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and charged with sexual battery on a child under 12, and two counts of battery. Esmurria was not granted bail on the sex charge and is now awaiting trial. Esmurria was sentenced to prison time in 2007 after he was found guilty of lewd and lascivious battery on a minor aged 12-15. Tech Support Pits From: Randall Re: Degree Symbol Dear Webby, I have belonged to this group for support in all areas of our lives and we use message boards a lot in there, I have one that asked people what the weather is like in their neighborhood cause its a worldwide club. My question is this. Is there any way i can make the temperature symbol that we use here in America? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Randall Dear Randall I use ALT 167 to get the degree symbol: You do need a numeric key pad for that, like you got on a regular keyboard. If you don't have a numeric keypad, copy it from here, or from the page I made ages ago for that at http://webby.com/char.html If you have the desktop Post-It-Notes, you can put often used characters onto one like this: etc., Then you can just copy them from there whenever you need one of them. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Ammonia To Whiten Clothes I found a way to whiten and brighten my clothes without bleach or Oxyclean, which I am allergic to. I take a bucket of approximately 1/2 gallon of very warm to hot water and 1 cup of lemon ammonia. I start with my lightest color or white garment that has turned dingy or gray and put it in the bucket. I swirl it all around with a stick. I take it out, wring it out and throw it in the washer. Then I go to the next lightest garment. If I should run low on this mixture, I just add another 1/2 gallon of very warm water and another cup of lemon ammonia then load the washer with the other clothes. If there's any solution left, I just dump it in the washer and start the load in the usual manner. On occasion, I put a cup of white vinegar in the rinse water. I've never had my clothes smell like ammonia and the ammonia is much gentler on the fabric then bleach. Source: I noticed my cleaning rags would come out cleaner when I use ammonia so I gave it a try. By Babbie from Lemon Grove, CA WARNING: Never use bleach if you use ammonia! If you mix ammonia nad bleach, you create poison gas! Don't allow any experiments involving ammonia or bleach! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com
If you are paying for your own hot water, this is for you! Solar Water Heat This is not some wacky scam, that claims to make all of your hot water all of the time, but a simple pre-heater, like I have been recommending since the 70's. When there is sunshine, you pre-heat the cold water with the sun, and use the electrical or gas heater to just top it off a bit to get the precise temperature, that you are used to. The bulk of the heating is done by the sun. I used that system even in the Yukon. It works. You don't need any fancy space age or hard to find components. For the glazing you can even use clear corrugated acrylic, plexi-glass, or old windiows. The glazing is never touched by the water, it just holds off the wind and acts like a flat mini-hot-house for the pipe and outer tank. Very fast payback for Solar Water Heat!

"Dear Lord," the minister began, with arms extended toward heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. "Without you, we are but dust." He would have continued but at that moment my very obedient daughter (who was listening!) leaned over to me and asked quite audibly in her shrill little girl voice that all others could hear, "Mom, what is butt dust?"
