This morning's letter came through without the red 'dangerous' flag, and all the images and color came through. Such is life dealing with nerds trying to help my world.

While proudly showing off his new apartment to friends, a college student led the way into the den. "What is the big brass gong and shovel for?" one of his friends asked. "That is the talking clock," the man replied. "How's it work?" the friend asked. "Watch," the man said and proceeded to give the gong an ear shattering whack with the shovel. Suddenly, someone screamed from the other side of the wall, "Knock it off, you idiot! It's two o'clock in the morning!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Shavonna Rumph, 31, Manatee County, Floriduh Jailed After Assaulting Boyfriend When He Refused To Cuddle With Her Shavonna Rumph, a 31-year-old Florida woman, was jailed Saturday after she allegedly assaulted her boyfriend because he refused to "cuddle" with her. According to the Manatee County Sheriff's office, Shavonna and her boyfriend had been drinking Saturday night when Shavonna expressed that she was in the mood for some "cuddling" when the couple settled down to sleep. An argument ensued when the boyfriend, 33-year-old Henry Price, refused to cuddle with Shavonna. The dispute turned physical when Shavonna grabbed Henry's shirt, causing it to tear. When Henry attempted to leave the residence, Shavonna dragged a table in front of the door to prevent him from leaving. When that failed to deter Henry from leaving, Shavonna allegedly grabbed a kitchen knife and threatened Henry with it. During questioning, Shavonna admitted to grabbing Henry by the shirt when he refused to "cuddle" with her but denied threatening him with a knife. She was booked into the Manatee County Jail and charged with battery domestic violence. Tech Support Pits From: Loretta Re: Getting rid of old download files Dear Webby, I believe I read somewhere that after updates to programs had been received and installed, then those updates could be deleted and one would have more space on the computer. Is that true, and if so, how do I do it? Loretta Dear Loretta If you are reasonably disciplined and always download updates into a download directory, for example C:\downloads, then it is easy. Then you just clean out that folder. However, if you don't pay attention and just download them to anywhere, then it becomes almost impossible. Usually, the downloads don't amount to very much, since they are zipped up or compressed in some fashion. If you are so cramped for space that deleting the download files would make a significant difference, then you are way overdue for a bigger hard drive. You can hunt down ".zip" files and delete those. CrapCleaner also makes extra space for you. You can download CrapCleaner from my toolbox at http://webby.com/tools Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Lemon Air Freshener To freshen the air in your kitchen, especially after cooking fish or cabbage, place a whole, unpeeled lemon in a 300 degree F oven for about 15 minutes, leaving the door slightly open. Turn off the oven and let the lemon cool before removing it. You can also boil lemon rind in water for a citrus scent. If you use the whole lemon make a pot of lemon tea after removing it from the oven by placing the lemon (sliced) into boiling water and add sugar as needed. By joesgirl Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
For decades, two heroic statues, one male and one female, faced each other in a city park, until one day an angel came down from heaven. "You've been such exemplary statues," he announced to them, "That I'm going to give you a special gift. I'm going to bring you both to life for thirty minutes and in that time, you can do anything you want." With a clap of his hands, the angel brought the statues to life. The two approached each other a bit shyly, but soon dashed for the bushes, from which shortly emerged a good deal of giggling, laughter, and shaking of branches. Fifteen minutes later, the two statues emerged from the bushes, wide grins on their faces. "You still have fifteen more minutes," said the angel, winking knowingly. Grinning even more widely, the female statue turned to the male statue and said, "Great! Only this time, you hold the pigeon down and I'll crap on its head."

No sermon and not suitable for church, just jokes and fun for grownups. Read it on-line or subscribe. If you subscribe, look for the double-opt-in confirmation request.

A group of American tourists were being guided through an ancient castle in Europe. "This place," the guide told them, "is 1600 years old. Not a stone in it has been touched, nothing altered, nothing replaced in all those years." "Wow," said one woman dryly, "they must have the same landlord I have."
The preacher spent his whole sermon relating the evils of sin and how all men are sinners with no exceptions. At the end of the sermon he asked rhetorically, "Now does anyone here think they are without sin?" He had only to wait a few seconds before a man in one of the back pews stood up. The pastor asked the man who had the audacity to stand after such a fiery sermon, "Sir, do you really think you are completely without sin?" The man quickly answered, "No sir, I'm not standing up for myself, but for my wife's first husband."
