>From Dianne This happened to an Englishman in France who was totally drunk. The French policeman stops his car and asks the gentleman if he has been drinking. With great difficulty, the Englishman admits that he has been drinking all day, that his daughter got married in the morning to a French man, and that he drank champagne and a few bottles of wine at the reception and quite a few glasses of single malt there after. Quite upset, the policeman proceeds to alcotest (breath test) him and asks the Englishman if he knows under French Law why he has just been arrested. The Englishman answers With humour: "No! Do you know that this is a British car and that my wife is the driver... on the other side???

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jim Lescowitch Jr., 35, FREELAND, Pa. Jailed after posting his WANTED poster on his Facebook page reported by Mail Online He has evaded police since November, but Anthony James Lescowitch Jr. was finally nabbed yesterday - after sharing a wanted picture of himself on his own Facebook page. Freeland Police Department hunted Lescowitch for two months over allegations he assaulted a man in July last year, before posting the wanted bulletin on their Facebook about 9.20pm yesterday. When the Pennsylvania man unwittingly shared the bulletin on his own page about three minutes later, undercover cops baited him. Police arrest Jim Lescowitch Jr., 35, less than two hours after he shared a wanted photo of himself on Facebook and taunted police for not being able to find him Lescowitch was one one of four men charged by police over the July 14 assault of a man on Ridge St. Court papers filed against Lescowitch on November 27 said he was wanted for hitting the victim in the head. Police said the victim fell to the street, was knocked out and robbed while incapacitated. According to court papers, Lescowitch, who was also wanted by Luzerne County Adult Probation, was arraigned. Lescowitch had reportedly been incarcerated about 15 times, the first time for stealing computers when he was 18. He is now 35. Posing as an attractive woman, one of the investigating officers, T.J. Rentschler, began chatting online with Lescowitch about his wanted picture. Over about 30 minutes, the 'woman' was able to gather key information about Lescowitch which led to his arrest. The undercover cop invited Lescowitch to meet for a drink. When the fugitive declined, the cop said: 'The least you can do is come out and have a cigarette with me.' Lescowitch agreed and when he pulled up in a car at the specified location, cops arrested him. Tech Support Pits From: Sir Squirrel Re: Printing in Black I have a problem I have not seen you address as yet. As we both know when typing a letter with the computer and include your e-mail address, your printer is going to print the e-mail address in blue. Until after the 3rd of Feb. I'm stuck with an empty color ink cartridge. SO! My question is, how can I make the printer print out the e-mail address in black? Sir Squirrel Dear Sir Squirrel Just set your printer to print in Black/White instead of color. You can usually do that in File, PageSetup, where you tell it whether to print in Portrait or Landscape. Most printers have a checkbox there for selecting color or Black. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Use Loose Leaf Paper In Your Printer Here is a great tip that I came up with out of "desperation": I love to peruse craft websites and print out free directions for ones I want to do later. Well, one day I went to print out a couple and found I was out of printer paper. Bummer! But, I found that loose leaf paper worked just as well, plus it has the holes, so now I can put my collection in a 3 ring binder! Now I always print my crafts and recipes on loose leaf paper, cheap and handy! :) By Carol from Landisville, PA On cheap inkjet printers that is quite OK, but I would not advise it on color laser printers. You can get "copy" paper at Costco for $30 a case (5000 sheets) or under $20 for half a case. Loose leaf is much more expensive. Keep in mind, though, that once you have a case, relatives and friends will want to borrow reams (250 packs) of paper. Set a price and write it onto the case, for example $2 / ream. They will still come and get paper from you, but at least your paper will be paid for. (Your actual cost is about $1.50 per 250 sheet ream, if you buy a $30 case.) What is called "Copy" paper is fine for inkjet and laser and normal correspondence. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
>From Ed My wife and I were stopped by a state policeman. He started to write up a speeding ticket. My wife, who is a hairstylist, said, "If you let us off with a warning, I'll give you free haircuts for a year." The policeman removed his hat. He was completely bald.

“Look at this mess!” roared an angry customer at a local cafe, pointing to his squashed doughnut. “It’s just as you ordered it, sir,” the waitress replied meekly. "You told me to bring you coffee and a doughnut and step on it. So I did.”
As I pulled into the parking lot at the grocery store, I noticed a car with its headlights on. I jotted down the make, color and license number. Inside the store I joined the line at the information desk, and when it was my turn, I told the clerk that there was a green Ford in the parking lot that had its lights on and gave her the license number. "Thank you," she replied, and went on to another customer. The gentleman next to me asked her indignantly, "Aren't you going to announce it?" "There's no need," she replied sheepishly. "That's my car."
