Sam and Ruth from Maine had just bought a new car when winter hit with all its fury. "I wonder if the car has seat warmers," Ruth wondered. "It sure does," said Sam, looking through the owner's manual. "Here it is...rear defrosters."
Thanks to Sandie for this story: When we agreed to help our sergeant move to a new apartment, we didn't know the elevator wasn't working. So after hours of carrying heavy boxes and furniture up 11 floors, we were wiped out. And when the sergeant asked us to search for his favorite pot, no one moved. "I'll give a bottle of Scotch to whoever finds it," he shouted. Within minutes, a private found his pot. "Good," said the sarge. "Now look for the Scotch."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Raymond Morillo, 33, Convicted Killer Raymond Morillo Escapes From New York Psychiatric Hospital a few days before scheduled release. reported by the Huff Post Police in Tennessee captured a convicted killer who snuck out of a New York City psychiatric hospital by swapping clothes with a friend who was visiting him. Cops apprehended Raymond Morillo, 33, at a Memphis bus station on Thursday night, according to the New York Post. The capture should relieve anxieties in Queens where the Daily News reported that residents feared running into the violent felon who slipped out of the Creedmoor Psychiatric Center on Tuesday. Morillo and an accomplice were convicted of slashing the throats of two men on a subway platform in 1998, according to an earlier New York Post article. While he was out on bail for that crime, a man was fatally shot during a dispute with Morillo and a group of teenagers. Morillo completed a 14-year sentence for manslaughter and assault in December. Authorities deemed him too dangerous for release, however, and sent him to Creedmoor for further evaluations, the Daily News said. He escaped just a few days ahead of his scheduled release. The New York Police Department tracked his cellphone to the Greyhound terminal in Memphis and alerted authorities there, DNAinfo reported. NYPD officers also arrested the friend who allegedly put on Morillo's hospital uniform. They charged him with criminal impersonation and obstruction of governmental administration, the Associated Press reported. Morillo's scheduled release will be rescheduled to after serving time for escaping. Tech Support Pits From: Klaus Re: Using memory sticks Dear Webby, I have just purchased a 16 GB memory stick which when I plug it into a USB port shows up on my computer as 'USB Disk (J:)'. My question is how do I transfer files onto this memory stick from stuff on the computer and outlook express? Your help in the past has been greatly appreciated. Thanks Klaus Dear Klaus With most memory sticks you simply drag the files and folders to and from it, like it was a hard drive. It is very rare that a computer does not see and recognize them. Making shortcuts from old default directories to the USB drive really speeds things up. Find out where your Outlook deposits pictures. Go there and make a shortcut to a "Keepers" folder on the USB drive. Then when you sort out pictures, you can just drag them to that shortcut. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Phone Service Wherever You Have Wi-Fi If you have internet service anywhere (even free Wi-Fi at McDonalds), then you also have phone service. Create yourself a free Gmail email account. Then, find the telephone receiver icon on the Gmail email home page. Hit that icon, then dial the number. If you want privacy, be sure to use a headset with a microphone and earplugs, otherwise, it works as a speaker phone. I have used this when traveling. Often you can access free Wi-Fi in parking lots of major hotels, McDonalds, libraries and such. I have also used it at some of the kids camps I work at during the summer months. We have wi-fi, but are so remote our cell phones don't work. You can only call out this way (can't receive), and your number will show up differently every time you call out. But, it beats a service you have to pay for or none at all. By April You can also use Skype. Calling other Skype users is free, text or voice or video. You can also be called by other Skype users. Calling land lines and cell phones is about 2 cents per minute. The downside is that after Microsoft bought Skype, they messed up the font sizes in the contact list, and many people now need a magnifyng glass to read it. Other than that, Skype is still a great program. I have used it for tech support for a dozen years or more, and also use it daily for a quick free video chat with my dad in Austria, Europe. Gmail has better video quality, but needs a better connection. The main advantage of Skype is that a lot more people are using it, and can therefroe be called free. You can also use Skype to send text to mobile phones. "hey Gramma! Put yer teeth in and come onto Skype!" Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
My son Zachary, 4, came screaming out of the bathroom to tell me he'd dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. So I fished it out and threw it in the garbage. Zachary stood there thinking for a moment, then ran to my bathroom and came out with my toothbrush. He held it up and said with a charming little smile, "We better throw this one out too then, 'cause it fell in the toilet last week."

Eight-year-old Sally brought her report card home from school. Her marks were good...mostly A's and a couple of B's. However, her teacher had written across the bottom: "Sally is a smart little girl, but she has one fault. She talks too much in school. I have an idea I am going to try, which I think may break her of the habit." Sally's dad signed her report card, putting a note on the back: "Please let me know if your idea works on Sally because I would like to try it out on her mother."
>From Sheila in Oz I was driving with my three young children one warm evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my five-year-old shout from the back seat, "Mom! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt!"
