It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. --- Jerome K. Jerome (1859 - 1927) Liberals are very broadminded: As long as somebody else is paying for it, they are always willing to give lots of careful consideration and deliberation to both sides of the their side. --- Socratex
It has to be confessed that the minister was rather long-winded. During his sermon a young wife of the congregation remembered that she had left the Sunday dinner in the gas range without turning down the flame. She hastily wrote a note and slipped it to her husband, who was an usher. He, thinking it was for the minister, calmly walked up and laid it on the pulpit. The minister paused, took the note with a smile, which turned into a terrific frown as he read: "Please hurry home and shut off the gas."

The policeman was walking his beat when he saw two men fighting and a little boy standing alongside them crying, "Daddy, Daddy!" The officer pulled the two men apart and, turning to the boy, asked, "Which one is your father, lad?" "I don't know," the boy said, rubbing tears from his eyes. "They are fighting about which one isn't!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Corey Starks, 38, Port orford, Oregon Jailed for Burying Father Under Motor Home So He Could Collect Father's Social Security Checks Reported by The Weekly Vice Corey Theodore Starks, a 38-year-old Port Orford man, was jailed after he allegedly buried his father under a trailer, then continued to collect his social security checks. According to police, an investigation was launched after authorities found the bones of an elderly man who became deceased three years ago and was then buried under his own motor home. The victim's son, Corey Starks, later admitted to burying his father under the trailer because he was unemployed and wanted to collect his father's social security checks. Starks reportedly collected more than $50,000 in benefits checks before the scam was finally uncovered. Investigators say 74-year-old Charles Starks' remains were found at the Anchor Inn RV park in Port Orford where he lived from 2009 to 2010. The body was discovered when the lot owner thought the trailer had been abandoned and was in the process of having it removed. Corey Starks claims his father died of natural causes, however at least one witness in the case told detectives that she believes Corey Starks killed his father. Charles Starks remains were sent to Eugene, Oregon for autopsy and reconstruction. The official cause has not yet been determined. Starks was booked into jail and charged with second-degree abuse of a corpse. The case is still under investigation and further charges may be pending, including the fraud charges. Tech Support Pits From: Gina Re: Japanese spam Dear Webby, Lately I am getting a lot of Japanese spam in my Gmail. Yes, I know, MailWasher can get rid of it, but I want to be able to filter it out right on Gmail (at work, where I don't have MailWasher). Is there a way to do it, like I do on MailWasher at howm? Gina Dear Gina Unfortunately the geniuses behind Gmail are able to identify the language and offer to translate, but they don't offer to filter all mails in that language. Until they do, you have to make a rude and crude filter like this: Look at some of those Japanese spams, and copy Start making a filter, and into the field for Has the words paste the what you see at http://webby.com/humor/JapaneseFilter.html I am not putting the contents of that in here, otherwise it will dump the Humor Letter for people, who use MailWasher and already use an advanced version of that filter. You won't have to type Japanese characters, just highlight what you see on that page, copy it, then paste it into the Has the words field. Tell it to dump the ones found into the trash. Checkmark to apply to all the ones found. You may have to click on the magnifying glass to test, and then plull down the tiny arrow for more, and in that return to making your filter. Yeah, I know, that part is a bit klutzy, and may cause you to cuss a bit, but it IS there at the top of the search results. Gmail's filters are rather primitive compared to MailWasher, but you CAN get them to work. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Soak Off Jar Labels In my quest to reclaim a Mason jar (specifically Classico pasta sauce jars) I needed to soak off the labels. I submerged the jars in hot water and let them sit until the paper was easy to pull off. The best part with the Classico jars is that the glue they use is also water soluble! So I was able to remove the glue with hot soapy water. With other jar, I removed the glue with Goo Gone and a paper towel. I was amazed at how well this worked! By Laurel from Port Orchard, WA A faster and easier way is to use your steam iron set to max. Squirt the corner of a label and lift it up with some tweezers, keep squirting and gently pulling with the tweezers. This trick works fine even with labels on Ziplock baggies. Do NOT try to pull the labels with your fingers. You are bound to squirt them with steam. That usually causes some cussing. Do NOT leave a phone nearby. I heard that pressing the hot iron onto your ear upon hearing the phone ring also causes cussing. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com

A wealthy contractor liked to know something about all the employees who worked for him. One day he came upon a young man who was expertly counting out a large wad of the firm's cash. The contractor asked the man, "Where did you get your financial training, young man?" "Yale," the man answered. "That's good," said the contractor, who was an advocate of higher learning. "What's your name?" he asked. The man answered, "Yonnie Yackson."

Finding one of her students making faces at others on the playground, Ms. Smith stopped to gently reprove the child. Smiling sweetly the teacher said, "When I was a child, I was told if I made ugly faces I would stay like that." The student looked up and replied, "Well, looks like they were right!"
Joan, who was rather well-proportioned, spent almost all of the day sunbathing on the roof of her hotel, while her hubby attended some conference. She wore a bathing suit the first day, but on the second, she decided that no one could see her way up there, and she slipped out of it for an overall tan. She'd hardly begun when she heard someone running up the stairs. She was lying on her stomach, so she just pulled a towel over her rear. "Excuse me, miss," said the flustered assistant manager of the hotel, out of breath from running up the stairs. "The hotel doesn't mind your sunbathing on the roof, but we would very much appreciate your wearing a bathing suit as you did yesterday." "What difference does it make?" Joan asked rather calmly. "No one can see me up here, and besides, I'm covered with a towel." "Not exactly," said the embarrassed man. "You're lying on the dining room skylight."
