A man traveling down a country road was forced to stop before a giant puddle covering the entire road. Looking to the side of the road, the man noticed a farmer leaning on a fence. "Think it's safe to cross?" the man asked. "I guess so," replied the farmer. The car was immediately swallowed by the puddle as the man drove in. In fact, it was so deep that he had to roll his window down to swim out of his car back to the surface. As his head broke the surface the man said to the farmer, "I thought you said I could safely drive through this puddle!" "Well, golly!" said the farmer, scratching his head. "It only come up chest-high on my ducks!"
Thanks to Allen for this story: I am a very nervous flyer. During a trip from California to Indiana, it didn't help that my connecting flight from Denver was delayed twice because of mechanical problems. Then, after we were aloft, I noticed the lights began flickering. I mentioned this to a flight attendant. "I'll take care of it," she said. Moments later the lights went out. Clearly she'd solved the problem by turning off the lights. A passenger across the aisle who had been listening leaned over and said, "Whatever you do, please don't tell her about the engines."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Shahzad Iqbal, 41, Laurel, MD Shahzad Iqbal, who was jailed after threatening Walmart employee with Gun, when he couldn't return a used tablet without receipt reported by the Weekly Vice Shahzad Iqbal, a 41-year-old Maryland man, was jailed Monday after he allegedly threatened a Walmart employee with a BB gun when he was told he could not return an item without a receipt. (After the "Entitlement Crowd" used to march in, take items off the shelf, walk them to the Cutomer Service counter and cash them in, ahem, return them for cash, they started asking for a receipt long before they expanded to Maryland.) According to police, the mayhem started Monday at about 11 p.m. when Iqbal walked into a Laural Walmart, approached the customer service counter and attempted to "return" a used electronic tablet device. Investigators say a woman working at the customer service counter asked to see a purchase receipt, however Iqbal was unable to provide one. He then removed a pair of headphones from his head and demanded cash in return for them as well. When the employee informed Iqbal that no items could be returned without a receipt, he reportedly became angry. That's when he allegedly placed a backpack on the counter, removed what appeared to be a machine gun and pointed it at the employee. When the employee screamed, Iqbal reportedly fled the scene. He was located a short time later a short distance from the store. The gun was located in Iqbal's backpack and was later identified as a CO2 powered BB gun. He was booked into jail and charged with attempted robbery, attempted first-degree assault and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. ____________ Yeah, ya gotta watch that CO2. Dangerous stuff! It can cause Government grants! Tech Support Pits From: Wendy Re: How do you get rid of Conduit? Dear Webby Hi there. Here I come with another question and I'm thinking you could be making a mint by charging for all these questions! HA!HA! I have this horrid "Conduit Search" on my screen after downloading Firefox which I love. Switched from IE to Firefox and just love it, but can't seem to figure out how I got the "Conduit Search" and now , how to get rid of it. Have you got any suggestions? I'm open to just about anything. Went to Control Panel, Add & Remove Programs but there's nothing there resembling "Conduit Search" so no help from that avenue. Hope you're toughing out this very cold winter right across Canada. We live in Ontario and it's been bitterly cold for so long that I'm wondering if spring will ever come! Thanks for all your help, Wendy Dear Wendy It's nice and warm here. Clear sky, warm sun, +3C, and the snow around the West side of the house is gone. On the South side there are still snow drifts. Conduit is a very nasty browser hijacker. It has nothing to do with FireFox, it just hijacks it. It also hijacks other browsers. You get it when you download stuff from dubious sources like Open Candy. For example, if you are searching for a replacement for the no longer working Windows clock gadget, you might find some really cute clocks and fall in love with them. Then, when you are downloading them, there are a few "User Agreement" forms, that APPEAR harmless enough, but somewhere in the small print you agree to the Conduit search and tool bar. It won't necessarily appear right away, so that you won't know, how you got infected with it. Because you agreed to the crap, Anti-Virus programs can't do anything. Conduit burrows deep into your computer, and is not easy to remove. You can try CrapCleaner and Spybot-Search&Destroy from my tool box at http://webby.com/tools. Chances are pretty good that CrapCleaner will get rid of that crap. Run Spybot afterwards for extra cleaning. If those do not do the trick, here are some removal guides: http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-condu ... h-malware/ http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-Conduit-Search-Protect http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-con ... d-toolbar/ (scroll down past the BS) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6V83Z0YIhY This one has the instructions in a video Good Luck!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Lysine for Treating a Cold Sore Regarding cold sores, I find it much easier to take extra Lysine. One or two 1,000 mg tabs stops it in its tracks. Lysine is an amino acid and unless one has had an actual fever, most cold sores are caused from an amino acid imbalance (too much arginine - for me from nuts). I first heard about Lysine from the Parade Magazine that was carried in the St. Louis Post Dispatch back in the 1970s. The weekend that paper came out, grocery and pharmaceutical shelves were cleared of Lysine. However, it soon became available again. It is not expensive and it works. I always keep a bottle on hand.

In the mood for joking, a vacationer strolled over to a farmer working in a field and asked, "Did you happen to see a wagonload of monkeys go by?" "Nope," replied the farmer. "Did you fall off?"

One of the burdens of office of the small town mayor was his brother in-law, a fellow who liked to throw his or, rather, his in-law's political weight around. The mayor had instructed his policemen and other city officials to treat him just like they would any other taxpayer. The brother-in-law got a ticket for overtime parking. He immediately descended in fury on police headquarters, waving the ticket and sputtering, "Hey, do you know who I am?" The desk sergeant surveyed him calmly, picked up his phone and dialed the mayor's office. "Tell the mayor," he said to the secretary, "that his brother-in-law is down here and can't remember his name. Should we send him to the loonie bin, or just lock him up for a few days and see if his memory returns?"
