Jill was selling tickets at the movie house when she got a phone call. This woman said, "How much is a ticket?" Jill said, "Eight dollars per seat." She asked, "How much for children?" Jill said, "Same price, Eight dollars per seat." She said, "The airlines charge half fare for children." Jill said, "Fine. Put the kids on a plane, and you come to the movie. You'll enjoy it a lot more that way."
The editor of a small country newspaper, furious over several government bills that had recently been passed, printed a scathing editorial with an enormous headline: "HALF THE LEGISLATORS ARE CROOKS"'.

>From Sheila in Oz Bill watched through the window as his young daughter played in the first snow of the season and made a snowman with a little friend. Entertained by the sight, he went closer and heard the little boy say: "I've got an idea. To finish it off, I'll go to the kitchen and find a carrot." And his daughter replied, "Make it two. The second can be his nose."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jordan Linn Graham, 22, Helena, Montana Jailed for pushing new hubby off cliff Jordan Linn Graham, a 22-year-old Montana woman, has been jailed after she allegedly pushed her husband off a cliff just a week after they had been married. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, an investigation was launched on July 8 after Graham's husband, 25-year-old Cody Johnson, failed to show up for work. When investigators interviewed Graham (pictured left), she stated that her husband had gone hiking with friends on July 7, but never returned. The next day, however, Graham miraculously found her husband's body, which was obscured by the canyon walls and foliage of Glacier National Park. Although park officials thought it strange that Graham was able to locate the body in such an obscure place, Graham explained that it was a place her "husband wanted to see before he died." As the investigation continued, however, text messages from Graham to various friends revealed that she was not happy with her one week old marriage. Investigators say Graham texted a friend on the same day Johnson was pushed to his death and stated that she was having second thoughts about getting married and intended to talk to Johnson about it. Five days after Johnson's deceased body had been recovered, Graham confessed to investigators that she was responsible for his death. Graham told investigators that she intended to talk to her husband about their marriage, so the two of them took a walk on Loop Trail which is known for its hairpin turns and cliff-edged pathways. It was along that trail that the couple began to argue as Graham broached the topic of their marriage. At some point during the argument, Graham reportedly smacked Johnson's hands away and then used both hands to push him face-first off the walkway's ledge. She then reportedly returned home, leaving his broken body on the rocks below. At the conclusion of a two-month investigation, Graham has been charged with second-degree murder. Bond has not yet been announced in the case. Tech Support Pits From: Peggy Re: Unsuccessful updates Dear Webby, I keep getting the same updates over and over. I install them, but they keep coming back although it says they have been installed successfully....what’s going on! I hope you have some insights, Thanks Peggie Dear Peggie That sounds like you got a fairly popular virus. Run a reputable anti-malware scan like McAfee. That should stop that nonsense. That virus pretends to give you a link to Microsoft, but it just downloads new instructions from North Korea or Iran or wherever the virus controller happens to be today. Once you have installed a good malware protection, it will not allow a re-infection, even if you again go to the same site, where you picked up that virus before. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning A Smooth Top Stove Surface I've owned a smoothtop stove for some six years or so and I've made many attempts at cleaning up my "muck ups". For average problems, there are many solutions out there. But for those very bad mistakes there are very few - if any - good solutions. I've tried almost everything. The scraping is tedious and doesn't always (or very seldom) works. First try baking soda with a little water. It's cheap and abrasive but doesn't scratch. Cleaners like Barkeeper's Friend are abrasive but have about the same effect as baking soda. Glass cleaner is good for mild problems, just let it soak. I'm gonna try the oven cleaner but be careful. I've been to different web sites and they have no comments on it's effectiveness. Glasstops - a solution or a problem? Are you perfect? Then they are a solution. You aren't perfect? - then they are no better than a regular electric stove. By Snorp I bought a glass top stove a dozen years ago, and find it is a hundred times easier than the open burner type. Yeah, I know, people who check their email while they cook, buy burner liners in 100 packs, often. And they still have a messy stove top. To clean a glass top, use a 4" paint scraper, that looks like a putty knife, but is stiffer and does NOT have a thin, sharp tip. The tip is about 1/16" thick and has sharp edges. Those sharp 90 degree edges do the work and stay sharp. Scrape the glass until the scraper glides smoothly. Spray some "Simple Green" or any other effective THIN cleaner on it. Not a thick dish soap! Let it soak five minutes, then use regular steel wool to scour areas, that are not shiny yet. Don't worry, the glass is harder than steel wool. Wipe with a wet sponge. If there are spots, that are still not shiny, sprinkle Comet onto the wet glass and let it soak. Don't use the Comet before you have done the other steps. It works best, when there is as little as possible of baked on hard stuff. I do it my way about twice a year, and the glass top is still shiny after a dozen years of an untamed bachelor pretending to know how to cook. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
An atheist complained to a friend, "Christians have their special holidays, such as Christmas and Easter; and Jews celebrate their holidays, such as Passover and Yom Kippur; Muslims have their holidays. EVERY religion has its holidays. But we atheists," he said, "have no recognized national holidays. It's an unfair discrimination." His friend replied, "Well... you got April first!"

Lena asked Ole if he would walk across the frozen lake to the general store to pick up a dozen eggs. He asked for some money, but she told hhim to put it on their tab. So he walked across, got the eggs and walked back. Then he asked Lena why she didn't send him with any money. She said, "I vasn't goin' to send any money ven I vasn't sure how tick de ice vas."
