Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are. --- Bertolt Brecht (1898 - 1956)
One of my college friends asked a group of us for advice on organizing her final report for the year. "Why don't you use Roman numerals to head the different sections?" another friend suggested. "I thought of that," she replied. "But I got a Mac, and my keyboard doesn't have Roman numerals on it."

Also known as 'women's intuition,' this sixth sense thing is no myth. Women seem to know what's going on in their man's lives almost better than they do. Why is this? In the early 80's researchers discovered that women have more connections between the brain's two hemispheres than men do. It's these connections that allow them to put together a puzzle from seemingly unconnectable pieces... That, and they go through your stuff while you're in the shower.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Marcus O'Neal, 28, Springfield, MO Jailed After Beating, Strip Searching Woman After She "Liked" A Girlfriend's Photograph On Facebook Reported by The Weekly Vice Marcus O'Neal, a 28-year-old Springfield bonehead, was jailed after he allegedly beat, strip searched and strangled his girlfriend because she "liked" a friend's photograph on Facebook. According to police, O'Neal turned violent and attacked his girlfriend after he looked at her Facebook page and noticed that she had "liked" a friend's photograph. The photograph in question belonged to the woman's girlfriend, who was seen standing next to a male companion. O'Neal became jealous, however, believing that his girlfriend wanted to be romantically involved with the man in the photograph. Although the victim pleaded that she had no interest in the man in the photograph, O'Neal slapped her across the face. He then allegedly grabbed the woman by the neck, drug her to a bedroom and threw her onto the bed. O'Neal paused for a moment to tell the victim's children that she had been cheating on him and was nothing but a "whore." He then slapped the woman again. About a half hour after the attack began, both the woman and her children were crying. That's when O'Neal closed the windows so neighbors couldn't hear the crying and screaming. He then locked the door so no one could interrupt what he was about to do next. He then forced the woman to strip naked in front of him so he could search her body for signs of sexual activity. O'Neal spit on the woman, threatened to kill her family and yelled obscenities at her. When O'Neal eventually became tired, the woman thought of an excuse to leave the house and checked herself into a hospital. Officers who were called to the hospital found scratch marks and bruising on the woman's neck which were consistent with her statement. O'Neal, who was out of jail on bond after he assaulted the same woman, was taken into custody. He told investigators that he never touched the woman and that the injuries on her neck were actually hickeys. He was booked into the Greene County Jail and charged with three counts of domestic assault. His bond has been set at $25,000.

I have seen it or similar ones on various web sites, but have never seen any explanation for it. What are they all about? Alice Dear Alice Those stamps are QR codes or 2D bar codes. QR stands for Quick response. Originally the QR codes were just used by Japanese car makers to identify parts and components.Nowadays, because they are compact and practically without a limit, they are also used for web site URLs. For example, the code for the Humor letter is If that code was on some other site or in a paper, then you could scan that with a smart phone, and it would open the Humor Letter for you. You could also scan it with a smart-phone off the computer screen and send the URL or store it. QR codes can be as small as 60 x 60 pixels, or as large as a corn field maze. If you use a smart phone, the QR codes can be handy. If you don't, just ignore them. Have FUN! DearWebby

A young married couple lived in a cheap housing complex an hour north of London. Their chief complaint was that the walls were paper-thin and that they had no privacy. This was painfully obvious when one morning the husband was upstairs and the wife was downstairs on the telephone. She was interrupted by the doorbell and went to greet her neighbor. "Give this to your husband," he said thrusting a roll of toilet paper into her hands. "He's been yelling for it for 15 minutes!"

Goodman was a moderately successful stockbroker who dreamed of making the big money someday. He took his friend out for a drive, and he chose the route carefully in order to impress on him the possibilities of the brokerage business. "Look at that yacht," he said as they drove slowly past a marina. "That 96' beauty belongs to the senior partner at Merrill Lynch. That one over there 104' is owned by the head of Goldman, Sachs. And look at that huge 210' yacht out there. That's the pride and joy of the top seller at Prudential-Bache." His friend Morris was silent. Goodman turned to look at him and saw a pained look on his face. "What's the matter?" Goodman asked. "I was just wondering," Morris said, "why aren't there any customers' yachts?"
