>From Dianne On Black Friday, a couple went Christmas shopping. The shopping center was packed. As the wife walked through the mall, she looked around to find her husband, who was nowhere to be seen. She became quite upset, because they had a lot of shopping to do. When not being able to find him, she became worried. So, she called him on her cell phone and asked him where he was. In a quiet voice he said, "Do you remember the jewelers we went to about five years ago, where you fell in love with that diamond necklace that we couldn't afford and I told you that I would get it for you one day?" The wife became choked up and started to cry, then said, "Oh, honey! Yes, I do remember that shop." He replied, "Well, I'm in the pub, next door to it."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Karie Lindgren, 36, Tarpon Springs, Floriduh Jailed For Running Over Duck Who Rejected Her Advances Reported by The Weekly Vice Karie Lindgren, a 36-year-old Florida woman, was jailed Saturday after she allegedly killed a duck after the animal rejected her advances. According to police, Lindgren became angry when she tried to lure a duck towards her with a piece of candy, but the duck refused to come to her. Witnesses say Lindgren "stalked the duck" in an attempt to win the animal's favor, but the duck would have no part of her. That's when she allegedly got into a car, drove across a lawn at a high rate of speed, and struck the animal with her vehicle. Officers who arrived on the scene found the dead duck laying in a driveway. Lindgren was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and charged with animal cruelty. She was released after posting $5,000 bail. Tech Support Pits From: Rose Re: Windows7 keeps updating Dear Webby: My Windows 7 has learned a new trick. When I shut it off, the screen informs me that it's installing one update. This happens every time I close down the computer. I've changed the Settings to "Inform Me Before Installing" but it ignores that. Help? Love, Rose Dear Rose Your settings will apply to future updates. It is still trying to finish one from before. Just let it finish, unless it is this Tuesday's. Some updates seem to take forever to finish, and are also very time consuming on the next start-up. That is normal for Windows 7 now. If you want fast and unobtrusive updates, then you will have to go to Linux. I can do updates and installs on a Linux server while a few throusand people are browsing sites on it, and none of them will notice it. If I have to reboot, it will appear to the visitors as if their connection had a momentary hick-up. Windows has an awfully long way to go to catch up to Linux! Have FUN! DearWebby

An elderly Italian man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite Italian cookies. With all his remaining strength, he lifted himself from the bed. Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom and with even greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs. With labored breath, he leaned against the doorframe, gazing into the kitchen. Were it not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven. There, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table, were literally hundreds of his favorite anisette cookies. Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted Italian wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man? Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself towards the table, the wondrous taste of the cookie was already in his mouth, seemingly bringing him back to life. The aged and withered hand trembled on its way to a cookie at the edge of the table, when it was suddenly smacked hard with a wooden spoon by his wife. "GET OUT A HERE!" she shouted, "THEY'RE FORA DA FUNERAL!"
