Resume bloopers: "While I am open to the initial nature of an assignment, I am decidedly disposed that it be so oriented as to at least partially incorporate the experience enjoyed heretofore and that it be configured so as to ultimately lead to the application of more rarefied facets of financial management as the major sphere of responsibility."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Nellie Marie Palacios, Santa Maria, 43, California A California woman, who was arrested for burglaring the home of an ex, murdering the cat and stealing stuff. Nellie Palacios, a 43-year-old California woman, was jailed Thursday after she broke into an ex-boyfriend's home and stabbed a cat to death. According to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to an Orcutt residence at around 3:30 p.m. Thursday after a man called to report that his ex girlfriend had gone into a home and began removing several paintings from the walls. When deputies arrived at the residence, they detained Palacios at the scene while continuing to investigate why she was at the residence and what had transpired inside the home. Investigators say a search of the property turned up a cat that had been stabbed to death before it was placed inside a doghouse located in the yard. Deputies also recovered a knife from under the doghouse that was covered with blood and cat hair. Further investigation revealed that the house didn't belong to a cousin of her, as she claimed, but instead belonged to Palacios' ex-boyfriend. During questioning, Palacios told deputies that she stabbed the cat in self defense. Several paintings and other items that had been removed from the home were found inside her car. She was booked into the Santa Barbara County jail and charged with burglary and animal cruelty. Her bail has been set at $50,000. Tech Support Pits From: Ron Re: How to get rid of "Conduit" hijacker? Dear Webby, Evidently I was not awake enough when I was installing some freeware on a couple of computers because when I looked at my browsers I had a tool bar for Conduit, so I removed it. However, now every time I restart the computers I get the message “ There was a problem starting C:\users\xxxxxx\AppData\Local\ Conduit\Background container\BackgroundContainer.dll.” I have tried everything in my limited knowledge to cure this problem, so I thought I would come to the expert and see if he has any thoughts. I am unsure of which site the problem occurred, because I was doing many downloads to update the computers. Please help. Thanks, Ron R Dear Ron Here is the information for getting rid of that Conduit infection: ... it-search/ Tedious, but not difficult. You just have to be stubborn and wade through it all to the very end. I have a hunch, after that you will be extremely picky about which "freeware" you really need. Stuff like Conduit really give freeware a bad name. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Easing Leg Cramps My legs tend to cramp at night. I tried elevating on a pillow but I always lost it at night. So I started putting my heavier reading pillow, the kind that fits behind you and props you up, under my legs at night. I never lose my pillow, and it has really helped with the leg cramp.

A missionary discovered a tribe of Indians in the Amazon, who had never recorded a baptism, confirm- ation or marriage. The missionary soon rectified the situation by baptizing and confirming everyone. He also married every couple that walked by and desired such. Later, the tribal chief told the Bishop the tribe had never had so much fun. The bishop asked the chief which part they enjoyed the most. "The marriage service," the chief said, smiling. "We all got new wives!"

This one is a Classic: After just a few years of marriage filled with constant arguments, a young man and his wife decided the only way to save their marriage was to try counseling. They had been at each other's throats for some time and felt that this was their last straw. When they arrived at the counsellor's office, the counselor jumped right in and opened the floor for discussion. "What seems to be the problem?" Immediately, the husband held his long face down without anything to say. In contrast, the wife began talking 90 miles an hour, describing all the wrongs within their marriage. After 15 minutes of listening to the wife, the counselor went over to her, picked her up by her waist, kissed her passionately and sat her back down. Afterwards, the wife sat speechless. The marriage counselor looked over at the husband, who stared in disbelief. The counselor said to the husband, "Your wife NEEDS that at least twice a week!" The husband scratched his head and replied: "I can bring her over on Tuesdays and Thursdays."
One night while I was cat-sitting my daughter's indoor feline, it escaped outside. When it failed to return the following morning, I found the beast clinging to a branch about 30 feet up in a spindly tree. Unable to lure it down, I called the fire department. "We don't do that anymore," the woman dispatcher said. "One guy missed his shot and hit a street light by accident." When I persisted, she was polite but firm. "The cat will come down when it gets hungry enough." How do you know that?" I asked. "Have you ever seen a cat skeleton in a tree?" she said. Two hours later the cat was back, meowing for breakfast.
