Bouncing spam? DONT! 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, February 5.
-26 and windy. I skipped my walk today. 

When I was living in the bush in the Yukon, after a -40 spell,
that would have been quite comfortable and great weather to 
go cut and sled some firewood. A dozen years here in Alberta
have softened me up and though I COULD look for some long
underwear and dress properly, since it is not really 
necessary, I stayed inside.

Have FUN!

Thanks to Kati for this story: Brenda O'Malley is home making dinner, as usual, when Tim Finnegan arrives at her door. "Brenda, may I come in?" he asks. "I've somethin' to tell ya". "Of course you can come in, you're always welcome, Tim. But where's me husband?" "That's what I'm here to be telling ya, Brenda. There was an accident down at the Guinness brewery." "Oh, God no!" cries Brenda. "Please don't tell me." "I must, Brenda. Your husband Shamus is dead and gone. I'm sorry." Finally, she looked up at Tim. "How did it happen, Tim?" "It was terrible, Brenda. He fell into a vat of Guinness Stout and drowned." "Oh my dear Jesus! But you must tell me truth, Tim. Did he at least go quickly?" "Well, Brenda... no. In fact, he got out three times to pee."
One morning a man came into the church on crutches. He stopped in front of the holy water, put some on both legs, and then threw his crutches down the stairs. An alter boy witnessed the scene and then ran into the rectory to tell the priest what he'd just seen. "Son, you've just witnessed a miracle!" the priest said. "Tell me where is this man now?" "Uh, he's over there by the holy water, sprawled on the floor, and cussing up a real storm."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Carrie Miller, 24, Tecumseh, NE Teacher - Charged With Repeatedly Having Sex With 15 Year Old Student Reported by the Weekly Vice Carrie Miller, a 24-year-old Spanish teacher at Johnson County Central High School, was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old student. According to the Johnson County Sheriff's Office, an investigation was launched Monday after allegations surfaced accusing Miller of having sexual contact with a minor student 50 to 60 times during the fall of 2012. Investigators say several of the alleged sexual encounters took place at an abandoned farmstead in Nemaha County and were often arranged over text messages and calls to the boy's mobile phone. Miller reportedly turned herself in after a warrant had been issued for her arrest. She was booked into jail and charged with sexual assault and using an electronic device to entice a minor. Her bond has been set at $25,000. ------- Bonehead, or Bimbo-malfunction? I know teachers have always messed around, but they used to be a lot pickier about who they chose. The only writing used to be fancy poetry, extremely careful and without naming any names, always assuming that the poetry WOULD fall into the wrong hands. Tech Support Pits From: Ella Re: Bouncing Spam Dear Webby, I have always been bouncing spam back at the sender, but now my daughter told me that you had written once that was a dumb idea. She couldn't remember the details, though, and told me to write you myself. So, what's the story with bouncing spam? Ella Dear Ella The only email to bounce is when your mother-in-law writes that she will come for an uninvited but extended visit. Spammers never use their own address as the sender address, and often they even forge the recipient's address as the sender address. Not all, but some spammers use a collector address to catch all the bounces. They can tell if the mail was bounced by a spam control program. A fake bounce to them is confirmation that the address works, and they sell it as "guaranteed live". Except for the one exception mentioned above, bouncing does not work in your favor. Have FUN!

From Ella While walking through a parking lot, I slipped and fell flat on my face. As I was lying there, a woman stopped her car and called out, "Are you hurt?" "No, I'm fine," I said, touched by her concern. "Oh, good," she continued. "So will you be vacating that parking space soon?"
