With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion. --- Steven Weinberg (1933 - ),

A man was just falling off to sleep when his wife nudged him and said the telephone was ringing. "At this hour it's probably for you," she said, closing her eyes. The phone by their bed was not working, so the man rolled out of bed and trundled downstairs. When he returned, his wife was asleep. He woke her and said, "It wasn't for me, after all." He waited as she drug herself out of bed, pulled on her robe and headed for the stairs. Then he added, "It was a wrong number."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Rogelio Andaverde, 34, Edinburg, Texas Faked His Own Kidnapping To Party, Because He Was Afraid Of His Wife Reported by Sailor Last week, Rogelio Andaverde let it be known that he'd rather be kidnapped at gunpoint than tell his wife he wanted to go out partying. The 34-year-old Edinburg, Texas man allegedly staged his own kidnapping last Tuesday. At about 10:30 p.m. he had his buddies -- wearing masks and toting guns -- break into his home while his wife was there and take him at gunpoint, police tell the San Antonio Express-News. The frantic woman called authorities, who fanned out across the neighborhood to look for Andaverde, Fox News reports. Police grew suspicious when they couldn't find any leads, and even more-so when Andaverde turned up. He reportedly told his wife that his kidnappers showed mercy and set him free. But later he allegedly confessed that he lied about the kidnapping so he could go out on the town with his buddies. He also reportedly said he was afraid of his wife. "We have people file false reports all the time, and we put them in jail for it," Hidalgo County Sheriff Guadalupe Treviño told The Monitor. "But I've never had someone do it just to get out of the house." Andaverde was charged with making a false report, and deputies are looking for his friends -- the bogus kidnappers -- for questioning. Fake or not, it was a kidnapping and involved guns. They go to jail too. Tech Support Pits From: Noella Re: Free Anti-Virus For the person who wanted good free virus protection: I've used Microsoft Security Essentials for several years with no problems. I also use CrapCleaner (run every day), Malwarebytes and Spybot Search and Destroy (run both at least once a week) along with it. So far, they have worked well for me. Noella Dear Noella Keep in mind, A) if Microsoft Security Essentials was good enough to sell, Microsoft surely wood, and B) Because a huge number of people use it, it is a favorite target for hackers. Running CrapCleaner, Malwarebytes and Spybot Search and Destroy daily is definitely a good idea if you rely on Microsoft Security Essentials, so is Defensive Computing, just like defensive riding is a good idea when riding a bike in hostile traffic.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com A Fix for Loose Dresser Knobs For loose dresser knobs that will not remain tightened, you might consider bow or ribbon ties. This will work best in children's rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms, since the look is rather feminine. I was so frustrated with my bedroom chest of drawers that I took out the hardware and threaded pretty ribbons through the holes. I made bows, and now, whenever I open a drawer, it tightens the bow. No more problem! Just a simple solution to a small frustration. By Janet If someone does not want ribbons but have easy to clean matching knobs or handles, I would recommend a drop of Loctite. Loctite is available in all the better hardware and electrical supply and bearing dealerships. It comes in tiny red bottles for industrial use and tubes for home use. Traditionally the contents are color coded: Green for alredy assembled fasteners. It wicks into the thread. Blue if you have to be able to remove it with tools. It won't rattle loose even on a Harley, but you CAN open it, if you have to. Red Loctite is permanent. You need a torch to soften it. Don't use that on a furnace fan pulley! However, for knobs, that should stay locked for a lifetime, put a drop onto the thread before you put the nut on, or put the nut on and tighten it, then apply a tiny drop of the Green. It will wick into the thread. I used Loctite not just at home but in industry on everything from motors, generators, welders, conveyor belts, crushers, ball and rod mills, pumps, etc. Since just a tiny drop is all you need, one of those tiny bottles will probably last you a lifetime. Next time you are at Home Depot or Ace, look for Loctite, or look for the nearest dealer at http://loctite.com They have all kinds of other industrial glues and sealers too, just look for Threadlockers. And yes, it works well on stove door handles, fridge handles, anything that should be tighter than it is. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

A minister announced to the congregation that admission to a church social event would be six dollars per person. "However, if you're over 65," he said, "the price will be only $5.50." From the back of the sanctuary, a woman's voice rang out, "Do you really think I'd give you that information for only fifty cents?"
