The situation in Ukraine is heating up. Kyiv Post The US is pretending it's just another Benghazi and is not helping. The issue is that the people want to join the West, but President Yanukovich has rejected the deal. His official excuse was worries about Russia not liking that, and the IMF asking for some guarantees on money. Actually, Russia is no problem. Chechia and Slovakia switched to the EU without a problem. The money guarantees for borrowing are just normal and were expected. What he did not mention is that the EU demanded that he release political prisoner Tymochenko. He is scared of her! Yanukovich is currently hiding in Russia, hoping the situation will calm down. The people are trying to convince the government to impeach him and call for elections. They have called on the US Government and all NATO governments to take a stand and oppose any Russian military intervention. It is already more bloody than the Orange Revolution in 2004. They are calling the protest the begin of a revolution.

Thanks to Kati for this story: This is a story about a couple who had been happily married for years. The only friction in their marriage was the husband's habit of farting loudly every morning when he awoke. The noise would wake his wife and the smell would make her eyes water and make her gasp for air. Every morning she would plead with him to stop ripping them off because it was making her sick. He told her he couldn't stop it and that it was perfectly natural. She told him to see a doctor; she was concerned that one day he would blow his guts out. The years went by and he continued to rip them out! Then one Thanksgiving morning as she was preparing the turkey for dinner and he was upstairs sound asleep, she looked at the bowl where she had put the turkey innards and neck, gizzard, liver and all the spare parts and a malicious thought came to her. She took the bowl and went upstairs where her husband was sound asleep and, gently pulling back the bed covers, she pulled back the elastic waistband of his underpants and emptied the bowl of turkey guts into his shorts. Some time later she heard her husband waken with his usual trumpeting which was followed by a blood curdling scream and the sound of frantic footsteps as he ran into the bathroom. The wife could hardly control herself as she rolled on the floor laughing, tears in her eyes! After years of torture she reckoned she had got him back pretty good. About twenty minutes later, her husband came downstairs in his blood stained underpants with a look of horror on his face. She bit her lip as she asked him what the matter was. He said, "Honey, you were right. All these years you have warned me and I didn't listen to you." "What do you mean?" asked his wife. "Well, you always told me that one day I would end up farting my guts out, and today it finally happened. But by the grace of God, some Vaseline, and the toothbrush, I think I got most of them all back in."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Douglas Herman, 43, and Paul Dillard, 30, Cocoa Beach, Floriduh Crooks lead cops to their meth lab Police stumbled onto a large meth lab at Harbor Isles Condominium in Cocoa Beach this morning – Brevard County Sheriff’s Agents seized about 5.5 kilos of meth oil that could have been further refined into methamphetamine. It began with a car theft. A Cocoa Beach woman turned a 2008 Chrysler Sebring over to a credit company. Her son, Douglas Herman, took the car back from a lot on Barton Boulevard in Rockledge, according to Rockledge Police Lt. Donna Seyferth. The credit company reported the car stolen. This morning at about 8 a.m., Cocoa Beach police responded to the condominium at the request of Rockledge police in an effort to find the stolen car, according to Cocoa Beach Police Maj. Jay Harmon. Officers found it in the parking lot and approached unit 1126. Three people saw the police and fled – one was injured after jumping from the unit’s second story window. They were all arrested. Police on scene noticed the characteristic aroma of a meth operation and called Brevard County Sheriff’s Office for assistance, according to Deputy Maria Fernez. Deputies responded to the condo, which belongs to Herman’s mother, though she hasn’t been there in about a month. A hazmat team responded, evacuating the surrounding apartments. Inside, they found several jugs of meth oil, totaling about 5,500 grams. “That is quite a bit,” Fernez said. “In fact, 400 grams equals a capital felony.” Harmon identified the three people arrested and their charges as: Douglas Herman, 43, of Merritt Island – trafficking in methamphetamine and resisting an officer without violence. Paul Dillard, 30, of Cape Canaveral – trafficking in methamphetamine and resisting an officer without violence. Malhon Daughtery, 34, of Merritt Island – resisting an officer without violence. Tech Support Pits From: Linda Re: What to do about a spam scam? Dear Webby My friend shared your today's message with me. Delightful. She also suggested you might be able to answer a question for me. This morning I received a spam message from "someone" purporting to be "An American Soldier" but really it was spam (i.e. discovered some money in Iraq and needed help, etc.). It made me angry. Is there anyone I can send this spam message to and they can stop it?? Thank you. Linda Dear Linda That's just a 419 scam, also called "Nigerian scam" or "Advance Fee scam", and it has been going around since the first Iraq war. Unless you are willing to travel to Nigeria and take the law into your own hands, about all you can do is send it to the US Secret Service. US Secret Service Financial Crimes Division 950 H Street N.W. Suite 5300 Washington, DC 20223 Phone: (202) 406-5850 Fax: (202) 406-5031 419.fcd@usss.treas.gov The Secret Service is not really doing anything about it, even though this scam costs Americans over 100 Million Dollars a year, but apparently they draw up neat charts showing how many more people fall for that same old scam each year.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Beverages for the Christmas Cactus I have a 55+ year old Christmas Cactus that I got after my grandmother's death. It didn't do very well and didn't grow much and I was about to throw it away; then, I remembered seeing my grandmother pour whatever she was drinking on the cactus. (Tea, coffee) I started giving the cactus a cup of coffee once a week and it has just exploded! It blooms twice a year and has grown by leaps and bounds. Try coffee! By Liz from Birmingham, AL Editor's Note: This works really well but make sure it is has no sugar or cream in it. A cup of water with regular plant food, that you give to other plantsworks well too over the winter. Spring, summer and fall it is best to hang them out into the wind. They are incredibly strong and like all succulents love th wind. It helps them to pump nutrients up. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
"Late again," the third-grade teacher said to little Sammy. "It ain't my fault," Miss Crabtree. "You can blame this on my dad. The reason I'm three hours late? Dad sleeps nights in the raw!" Now Miss Crabtree had taught grammar school for thirty-some-odd years. So she asked little Sammy what he meant by that, despite her mounting fears. Full of grins and mischief, and in the flower of his youth, little Sammy and trouble were old friends, but he always told the truth. "You see, Miss Crabtree, at the ranch we got this here lowdown coyote. The last few nights he done et six hens and killed Ma's best milk goat. And last night, when Dad heard a noise out in the chicken pen, he grabbed his gun and said to Ma, 'That coyote's back again, I'm a gonna git him!'" "'Stay back, he yelled to all us kids, I wouldn't want ya hurt!' He was naked as a jaybird, no boots, no pants, no shirt! To the hen house he crawled, just like an Injun on the snoop. Then he stuck that double barrel through the hatch of the coop. As he stared into the darkness, with coyotes on his mind, our old hound dog Zeke had done woke up and come asneakin' up behind Dad. Then we all looked on plumb helpless as Dad was cold-nosed without warnin'." "Miss Crabtree, we been cleanin' chickens since three o'clock this mornin'!"

Three nurses arrive at the pearly gates. St. Peter asks the first why he should admit her. She replies that she has been an emergency room nurse and has saved thousands and thousands of lives. "OK", he says, "Come on in!" The second reports that he has been an ICU nurse and he, too, has saved thousands and thousands of lives. St. Peter lets him in, too. St. Peter asks the third nurse the same question. She replies that she has been a managed care nurse and has saved thousands and thousands of dollars for the insurance company. St. Peter replies, "OK. Come on in. But you can only stay three days."
>From Agnes I have five siblings, three sisters and two brothers. One night I was chatting with my Mom about how she had changed as a mother from the first child to the last. She told me she had mellowed a lot over the years: "When your oldest sister coughed or sneezed, I called the ambulance. When your youngest brother swallowed a dime, I just told him it was coming out of his allowance."
