When the gods wish to punish us, they answer our prayers. --- Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900) It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. --- Aristotle - or get hostile about it. --- Socratex
An elderly parish priest was tending his garden near a convent when a passerby stopped to inquire after the priest's much-loved roses. "Not bad," said the priest, "but they suffer from a disease peculiar to this area known as the black death." "What on earth is that?" asked the passerby, anxious to increase his garden knowledge. "Nuns with scissors."
A man was visiting his elderly neighbor and was given a tour of his home. In the den was a stuffed lion. The neighbor asked, "When did you bag him?" The old man said proudly, "That was three years ago, when I went hunting with my ex-wife and her mother." "What's he stuffed with?" asked the neighbor. "Guess!" replied the old man

For our 20th anniversary my husband and I vacationed in Hawaii, where we went snorkeling. After an hour in the water, everyone got back on the boat, except for me and one handsome young man. As I continued my underwater exploring, I noticed that everywhere I swam, he swam. I snorkeled for another 40 minutes. So did he. I felt very flattered and, as I took off my fins, I asked him coyly why he had stayed in the water for so long. "I'm the lifeguard," he replied matter-of-factly. "I couldn't get out until you did."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Kellie Workman, 36, Logan, West Virginia Jailed After Leaving Four Children Alone In House That Had No Phone, Food, Electricity Or Beds Kellie Workman, a 36-year-old West Virginia woman, was jailed Saturday after she allegedly left her four young children alone to fend for themselves - without a phone, electricity, food or even a bed to sleep in. According to the Logan County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to Workman's home after a neighbor became concerned about the welfare of her four children. Deputies arrived at the scene to discover a home that was in deplorable condition. Parts of the house had been torn down, doors unhinged, screens removed and toys were found strung across the yard. When deputies knocked on the door, several children (ages 5 to 13) answered the door. Deputies entered the residence to find a 1-year-old baby who was being cared for by the other children. When deputies asked the children where a parent or guardian was, the children answered that they had asked their mother where she was going, but she replied that it was "none of their business." Deputies soon-after discovered that the home had no electricity, no phone, no food and no beds for the children to sleep on. The home was filled with over-flowing trash cans and the children told police that they found their way around the house by using a flashlight. When asked, the children told deputies that they were frequently left alone at home. Workman was stopped as she arrived back home at about 11:30 p.m.. During a search, deputies found pills in her pocket that are believed to be Xanax and marijuana inside her vehicle. She was booked into the Logan County Jail and charged with four counts of child abuse/risk of injury to a child and two counts of possessing a controlled substance. The children were placed into the custody of Child Protective Services. Tech Support Pits From: Eileen Re: Moving and Sorting files to external drive Dear Webby, I want to sort my mom's chaotic collection of pictures, music and videos onto an external drive. She said it is easy and that you can 'splain that. So, how do I do that? Eileen Dear Eileen First set your search preferences to NOT include Windows system and operating directories. Then make folders on the external drive for JPG GIF Music Movies and open a file explorer showing the external drive. Next do a search for *.JPG It won't be fast, but eventually Windows will show you an explorer like indow withh all thd JPG files. Click on one, gently so as not to opne it, Hold down CTRL and click on A to select all then drag them into the JPG folder on the external drive. Do the same with GIF. Nowadays GIF files are mostly animated short movies. There will be the odd small logos, but it's easy enough to detect and eliminate them because of their small size. Then do the same with music and movies. Keep in mind that CTRL plus dragging copies, SHIFT plus dragging moves, and deletes them from the old location. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Goop as Laundry Stain Remover I bought a hand cleaner found at Walmart in the automotive section called Goop. I decided to try it on a stain one day, on my child's clothes, and it worked. Now I use it all the time. It even works on set in stains. Just wash your item then apply Goop to the stain and work it in. Let it sit 2-3 hours, stubborn stains maybe 3-4 days. Wash again and stains are gone. It's non toxic, and safe for pets and children. By coville123 If you don't see goop, ANY waterless handcleaner will do the same. However, it is extremely important, that you use it, BEFORE drying clothes! This applies to ANY stain removal trick. Drying heat sets the stain and makes it harder to remove. If you use a waterless handcleaner like Goop, just rub it in before you heave the item into the laundry pile. The stain will be totally gone, without leaving a rim. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
World War III. The US has succeeded in building a computer able to solve any strategic or tactical problem. Military leaders are assembled in front of the new machine and instructed to feed a difficult tactical problem into it. They describe a hypothetical situation to the computer and then ask the pivotal question: ATTACK OR RETREAT? The computer hums away for an hour and then comes up with the answer: YES. The generals look at each other, somewhat stupefied. Finally one of them submits a second request to the computer: YES WHAT? Instantly the computer responded: YES SIR!

The doctor directed his comments and questions to Little Johnny in a professional manner. When he asked Little Johnny, "Is there anything you are allergic to?" Little Johnny nodded and whispered in his ear. Smiling, the pediatrician wrote out a prescription and handed it to Little Johnny's mother. She tucked it into her purse without looking at it. As the pharmacist filled the order, he remarked on the unusual food-drug interaction Little Johnny must have. Little Johnny's mother looked puzzled until he showed her the label on the bottle. As per the doctor's instructions, it read, "Do not take with broccoli."
