The North has SNAFU (S.N.A.F.U. = Situation Normal, All Fu..ed Up) TARFU (T.A.R.F.U. = Things Are Really Fu..ed Up in the Yukon. They started out as military and construction camps in 1941 during construction of the Alaska Highway, when somebody's compass malfunctioned and the road took off at a right angle going southward, towards the Atlin, BC hotsprings. When they got TARFU established, they realized the errors of their way, and went back to what became Jake's Corner, and headed northwest towards Whitehorse and Anchorage again. SNAFU and TARFU became common Army terms. The road was extended past TARFU towards Atlin in the 70's. The Yukon has lakes all over the place, and of course, those two army camps were built by nice fishing lakes, probably because it was easy to establish camps on the lake ice, and to supplement the food with fish. I have fished in both of those lakes a few times.

My uncle Joe and his best buddy, Bubba, went hunting a couple of weeks ago. Somehow they got lost. (Uncle Joe swears it had nothing to do with the large quantities of alcohol consumed...) Uncle Joe reassured his buddy, though. "Don't worry. All we have to do is shoot into the air three times, stay where we are, and someone will find us." They shot in the air three times, but no one came. After a while, they tried it again. Still no response. When they decided to try once more, Bubba said, "It better work this time. We're down to our last three arrows."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Brian Hounslow, 37, Tulsa, Oklahoma Jailed For Naked Masturbation Inside Walmart Women’s Bathroom Reported by The Smoking Gun An Oklahoma man was arrested yesterday for allegedly masturbating in the women’s bathroom at a Tulsa Walmart, a solo act that was interrupted by a female shopper who discovered the naked suspect around 8:30 AM, police report. Customer Beth Davis told police that she entered the restroom yesterday morning and found a nude man pleasuring himself in front of the mirror. Davis, who fled the bathroom in search of help, said that she later saw the suspect, now dressed, depart the bathroom and head for the Walmart’s exit. So the 61-year-old Davis, who told TSG she was “in panic mode”, began filming him with her cell phone, while providing accompanying narration: “My name is Beth Davis and I witnessed it. You were naked and had your pants down around your ankles. Someone stop him. Do not let him go out that door.” While the man ran from the store, a second shopper photographed his vehicle and its license plate. Within two hours, Tulsa cops arrested Brian Hounslow, 37, for felony indecent exposure. Hounslow, seen in the above mug shot, was booked into the county jail, where he is being held in lieu of $5000 bond. According to a booking report, Hounslow confessed to sex crime detectives that he had been masturbating in the Walmart bathroom. The document also notes that Davis saw Hounslow’s “fully exposed turgid penis.” Davis, a grandmother of eight, said that Hounslow offered an apology, of sorts, when she confronted him after he left the restroom. Hounslow, she recalled, said, “I didn’t know it was the women’s bathroom.” Tech Support Pits From: Edith Re: Windows7 "Gadgets" disappeared Dear Webby, My Windows Gadgets disappeared, and I can't get them going again. I need my round clock! What's the story? Edith Dear Edith Forget the round clock. Microsoft has killed most gadgets, and has disabled the connections needed by third party gadgets. Apparently the sidebar connections were not authorized by the emperor, so they have been axed. Some Microsoft pages still tell you all about gadgets, but one of them says that the gadgets have been axed for security reasons. The official response is "Buy a new computer with W8, it has authorized apps for clocks." I agree that the task bar clock is too small. You can hit it, though, and see a round clock. Don't try to get third party clocks right now. They may look cute, but they don't work, many of them are unstable or not recommended for various reasons, and most of them come with ad ware and hard to get rid of slave ware like "intext.nav-links". So DON'T !!! Otherwise you might wind up with a new computer and W8 cussware sooner than planned. Just go to the Dollar Store and buy a goofy plastic watch and hang or glue it beside the monitor. Maybe by the time the watch battery runs out, we will have safe gadgets again. W8.1 is still Cuss-Ware, causing bad tempers and foul language. W8.3 is promised to be less of a user-hostile dud. Most likely your watch battery will last that long. The Microsoft CPU / Memory Meter gadget has been axed too. W7 apparently was not authorized to have that gadget. "Buy a new computer with W8, it has..." No thanks, I got work to do. Some of you probably have not installed Tuesday's Update yet. That update will murder your gadgets, when you activate it. You might want to procrastinate a bit with that, Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Cleaning Combs I use old toothbrushes for cleaning combs. Swish around shampoo in a sinkful of hot water, soak the combs for a few minutes and brush. By Michele Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
Mac died at the controls of his plane and went to pilots' hell, where he found a hideous devil and three doors. The devil was busy escorting other pilots to various "hell rooms." "I'll be right back--don't go away," said the devil, and he vanished. Sneaking over to the first door, Mac peeked in and saw a cockpit, where the pilot was condemned to forever run through pre-flight checks. He slammed that door and peeked into the second. There, alarms rang and red lights flashed while a pilot had to avoid one emergency after another. Unable to imagine a worse fate, Mac cautiously opened the third door. He was amazed to see many beautiful, scantily clad flight attendants answering to a captain's every whim. He quickly returned to his place seconds before the devil reappeared. "Okay, Mac," said the devil, "Which door will it be, number 1 or number 2?" "Um, I want door number 3," answered Mac. "Nope," said the devil. "You can't have door number 3. That's flight attendants' hell."

John and Nancy were married for 40 years and decided they wanted to renew their vows and planned a second wedding. They were discussing the details with their friends. Nancy wasn't going to wear a traditional bridal gown and she started describing the dress she was planning to wear. One of her friends asked what color shoes she had to go with the dress. Nancy replied, "Silver." At that point, John chimed in, "Yep silver - - to match her hair." Shooting a glaring look at John's bald spot, Nancy's friend said, "So John, I guess you are going barefoot." ... gt; src="" align=left>
