>From Roland The couple was delighted when their long wait to adopt a baby came to an end. The adoption center called and told them that there was a wonderful Russian baby boy available. The couple accepted him without hesitation. On the way home from the adoption center, they stopped by the local college so they each could enroll in night courses. After they filled out the forms, the registration clerk inquired, "What ever possessed you to study Russian?" The couple said proudly, "We just adopted a Russian baby. In a year or so, when he begins to talk, we want to be able to understand him."
The newly wed wife said to her husband when he returned from work: "I have great news for you. Pretty soon we're going to be three in this house instead of two."The husband started glowing with happiness and kissing his wife said: "Oh darling, I'm the happiest man in the world." But then she said: "I'm glad that you feel this way about my mother moving in with us tomorrow morning ."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Andrew Boguslawski, an Indiana man who was jailed after trooper on routine traffic stop finds nearly 50 bombs. Andrew Boguslawski, a 43-year-old Indiana man, was jailed New Year's Day after police found nearly 50 bombs and a remote detonating device in his vehicle during a routine traffic stop for speeding. According to Ohio State Police, Boguslawski was traveling 85 mph in a 70-mph section of Interstate 70 Wednesday when Troopers pulled him over for speeding. When the Trooper approached the window, Boguslawski stated that he had no weapons or other unlawful materials in his vehicle. However, the officer saw the handle of a gun between Boguslawski's legs when he returned to the car with a ticket. The officer then held Boguslawski at gun point while waiting for backup to arrive. Officers later recovered 48 explosive devices, a remote detonating system, additional bomb making materials, two pistols and two rifles from Boguslawski's vehicle. Investigators are working to determine why Boguslawski had so many explosives and what he intended to do with them in Ohio. He was booked into jail and charged with illegal manufacture or processing of explosives. He remains held in lieu of $1 million bond. Tech Support Pits From: Rita Re: Lost files Dear Webby, Hello! I need to ask you a question about my Documents settings.I went to click on my Documents this morning and got a box with instructions that it was not recognized and to rt click my documents icon then click properties and check path to target location is correct.So I went there and clicked on the default thinking maybe this would help. It only came up as if I had just started it today.I had tons of pics. and all on there that can never be replaced. Could you tell me where I might be able to retrieve the files? I updated IE, but it has never done this before. I don't understand how my documents could just disappear or not work anymore.Never had this problem before. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Love you letters everyday. Thank you. Rita in Texas Dear Rita IE is bad news, but I don't think it is the cause of this particular problem. Probably the cat batted the mouse around and drug the files elsewhere. Or an errant elbow. Click on START Search and search for *.jpg That will find all the JPG files, and let you drag them back to where you used to have them, or to a more appropriate location. The same trick works with .gif, mp3, doc, docx, and whatever files you are looking for. You will soon find out where they got drug to. Chances are they are all at the same place. This is a chance for you to drag them all to a more convenient location than the rather klutzy default. I put them onto the external USB drive into the !! folder. "!!" is always right near the top and really easy to find. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cooking Pasta or Rice in the Microwave When we got our first microwave, we were without a stove so I learned to cook in the microwave. For any type of pasta or rice: Put in a microwave safe bowl. Add twice as much water or other liquid as there is of the pasta. Microwave on high. 15 minutes for noodles or small pasta. 20-25 minutes for macaroni or thicker pasta. 30 minutes for rice. IMPORTANT, stir well after the first 5 minutes. This keeps the pasta from clumping together. Rice doesn't need to be stirred. Drain and use. Since microwaves vary in their cooking, check 5 minutes before time. You can use stock, tomatoes in juice, et cetera for liquid. When cooking rice, cover and let set for 5-7 minutes and it will soak up the liquid and will be nice and fluffy. Source: Experience By Nightsong If you add a bit of salt and butter and boiling hot liquid 5 minutes earlier, you can drastically reduce cooking time and energy use. Keep in mind, on HIGH the Microwave uses just as much power as the big burner on a stove. KD and generic copies, which often seems to be from WWII, or maybe the pyramids, to save on shipping costs and warehouse space, really benefit from a hot pre-soak. Have FUN!

A young man called his mother and announced excitedly that he had just met the woman of his dreams. Now what should he do? His mother had an idea: "Why don't you send her flowers, and on the card invite her to your apartment for a home- cooked meal?" He thought this was a great strategy, and a week later, the woman came to dinner. His mother called the next day to see how things had gone. "I was totally humiliated," he moaned. "She insisted on washing the dishes." "What's wrong with that?" asked his mother. "I think it's a wonderful gesture." "We hadn't started eating yet."
