Thanks to Connie for this: My mother-in-law says that she can not understand how the lackluster, low mentality, loser that her daughter had the misfortune to marry could have produced such smart, intelligent, beautiful, and wonderful grandchildren. She is inclined to believe that genetics skips every other generation. Therefore she is not holding out much hope for her great-grandchildren.

I was helping a friend of mine with his roadside farm stand when a man stopped by and asked how much the eggs were. "Sixty cents for the small, seventy cents for the medium, ninety cents for the large and thirty cents for the cracked ones," I answered. "All right," he said, "crack me a dozen of the large ones."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Edwin Charles Tobergta, 34, Hamilton, Ohio Edwin Tobergta - Jailed After Having Sex With Pool Raft….. Again! Reported by The Weekly Vice Edwin Charles Tobergta, a 34-year-old Ohio man, was jailed Wednesday after he was allegedly caught by a child having sex with a rubber raft. And if this story seems a little too familiar, there's a reason for that. This isn't Edwin's first incident that involves having sex with inflatable objects. In August, 2011 Tobergta was arrested when he stole a neighbor's pool raft and began having sex with it. This time Tobergta was arrested after he allegedly stripped naked and began having sex with a pink inflatable pool raft in an ally behind his home. The incident took place in front of several children, one of who was the owner of the raft. Tobergta picked up the raft and went back into his home after one of the children shouted at him to stop. Besides the 2011 incident, Tobergta was also arrested in 2002 when he was caught having sex with an inflatable pumpkin. Tobergta has been jailed at least 5 times in recent years for similar acts. Tobergta, who has now been indicted by a grand jury, was booked into the Butler County Jail and charged with felony public indecency. He remains held in lieu of $25,000 bond. Tech Support Pits From: Eliza Re: How long to keep blacklist? Dear Webby You mentioned at one time how long to keep addresses in the Mailwasher blacklist. I am quite happy with MailWasher, but I noticed that the blacklist file is getting quite large, and sooner or later that must be putting a load on my machine. And how do you deal with spammers that keep changing their forged sending addresses? Eliza Dear Eliza MailWasher generally ignores the sender address, unless it is in the blacklist, since most spammers forge their sender address anyway. MailWasher checks the content of spam. Persistent spammers like the watch sellers are best dealt with a filter. It takes 20 seconds to make a filter, and you never see mail from those crooks again. To keep the blacklist short and fast, I age it off in two days. By then the spammers usually change their address anyway. For those of you who haven't got MailWasher yet, click the link and and get a free trial copy. You can get the free trial at Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Use Mechanical Pencil as Stylus I saw my daughter using one of her empty mechanical pencils as a stylus on her DSI. I am sure it could be used on any electronic which has a touch screen. Editor's Note: Be sure your mechanical pencil does not have a metal tip as this might scratch the screen.

A waitress became violently ill while at work and was rushed by ambulance to the emergency room. In typical hospital fashion, she was placed on an examining table and then all but ignored for the next half-hour. Finally, she noticed a doctor out in the hall and yelled, "Please help me!" "Sorry," he replied, "it's not my table."

An industrious turkey farmer was always experimenting with breeding to make a perfect turkey. His family was fond of the leg portion for dinner, but there were never enough legs for everyone. After many frustrating attempts, the farmer was relating the results of his efforts to his friends at the general store. "Well I finally did it! I bred a turkey that has six legs!" They all asked the farmer how it tasted. "I don't know," said the farmer. "I can't catch him!"
