>from Daniel An elderly couple had just learned how to send text messages on their cell phones. The wife was a romantic type and the husband was more of a no-nonsense guy. One afternoon the wife went out to meet a friend for coffee. She decided to send her husband a romantic text message and she wrote: "If you are sleeping, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking, send me a sip. If you are crying, send me your tears. I love you.” The husband texted back to her: "I'm on the toilet. Please advise."
My new girlfriend, Karen, got a job at a local hardware store. "The owner doesn't want us hanging out with our friends," she said. "If you stop by, tell them you're my brother." On my first visit, I walked to the customer service desk and asked the older woman there, "Is Karen around"? When she looked at me quizzically, I added, "I'm her brother." She smiled, "What a nice surprise. I am so pleased to meet you! I'm Karen's mother."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Frances Slyman, 44, Brunswick, Ohio Ohio Woman Assaulted Supermarket Worker With Pair Of "Special Cut Filets" Frances Slyman. The 44-year-old was arrested for assault after allegedly striking an Ohio supermarket employee with a pair of “special cut filets,” police report. While shopping with her family at the Giant Eagle store in Brunswick, a city 25 miles south of Cleveland, Slyman “went to the meat counter to retrieve some special cut filets,” according to a police report. “At some point,” cops noted, “Slyman threw 2 of the filets” at Alzbeta Barath, a 64-year-old woman working the meat counter. The filets went flying “over an alleged comment she climed Barath supposedly had made earlier toward Slyman’s husband,” according to investigators. The derogatory comment--which Barath denied making-- purportedly involved the weight of Slyman. A witness told cops that she did not hear Barath say anything to the Slymans to prompt the filet assault. The flung filets struck Barath in the eye and shoulder, though she declined medical treatment for the meat attack. But Barath did opt to press charges against Slyman, who was arrested for misdemeanor assault. She was booked into the local jail and later released. Quite possibly the comments sounding like "Ten Ton Porker" were by somebody different and not concerning her. It is unclear if the “special cut filets” were placed in the police evidence locker following the February 8 incident, or whether somebody "destroyed the evidence". Tech Support Pits From: Angela Re: Is it W7 or FireFox Dear Webby, Is it W7 or FireFox? I used to be able to have two dozen tabs open for later perusal, and there was no problem whatsoever. Then gradually, over the last year, that did become a problem. Firefox slowed down more and more and only a reboot would speed it up to normal. Is W7 sabotaging it? How do I get around that problem? Angela Dear Angela I have no proof that, with each Windows Update, Firefox becomes a bit slower and more fragile. Like you, I found that it APPEARS that way. Naturally, nobody will admit to nothing. Instead of rebooting you can hit CTRL SHIFT ESC to bring up the Task Manager. Click on Processes Usually, by that time Firefox will be at the top. Highlight it, and hit ALT E to end it. Hit ENTER to OK. FireFox will close as if with a light switch. Start it up again. You will get a screen asking you, if you want to restore. On that screen you see all the tabs, that you had open. That gives you a chance to take the checkmarks off duplicates and no longer needed tabs. After weeding it out a bit, hit OK. Firefox will open at normal speed after that. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Dryer Sheets For Garbage Odor I put a scented fabric softener sheet under every trash bag and inside of the bag, too, for the trashcans in my house. It seems to really help not only the trashcans by absorbing odors but seems to freshen the air in the room too! By julrobs from North Augusta, SC Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
The 7 Ages of Marriage 1ST YEAR: The husband says, "Oh, sweetie pie, I'm really worried about those nasty sniffles you have! There's no telling what that could turn into with all the strep that's been going around. I'm going to take you right down to the hospital and have you admitted for a couple days of rest. I know the food is lousy there, so I'm going to bring you some takeout from Tosini's. I've already arranged it with the head nurse." 2ND YEAR: "Listen, honey, I don't like the sound of that cough. I called the doc and he's going to stop by here and take a look at you. Why don't you just go on to bed and get the rest you need?" 3RD YEAR: "Maybe you better go lie down, darling. When you feel lousy you need the rest. I'll bring you something-- do we have any canned soup around here?" 4TH YEAR: "No sense wearing yourself out when you're under the weath! er. When you finish those dishes and the kids' baths and get them to bed, you ought to go to bed yourself!" 5TH YEAR: "Why don't you take a couple aspirin?" 6TH YEAR: "You oughta go gargle or something, instead of sitting around barking like a dog!" 7TH YEAR: "For Pete's sake, stop sneezing. Are you trying to give me pneumonia? You'd better pick up some tissues while you're at the store."

>From Hilla As the owner of an old clunker, I was used to dealing with a variety of car breakdowns. One day at the supermarket, just after I had filled my trunk with groceries, I noticed a stream of fluid pouring out of the bottom of the car. I knew I had to get home before the car was once again out of action. When I arrived I asked my husband to take a look at the pro- blem. Expecting the worst, I braced myself for his diagnosis. When he came back in, he was smiling. "It's apple juice," he said.
A gent from Chicago was on a fishing vacation up north in the Wisconsin woods. He was out fishing on a lake in a small boat and not having much luck. He noticed a man in another small boat that was close by, open his tackle box and take out a mirror. Being curious the man rowed over and enquired, "What is the mirror for?" "That's my secret way to catch fish," replied the other man. "I Shine the mirror on the top of the water. The fish notice the spot of sun on the water above and they swim up to the surface. Then I just reach down, net them and pull them into the boat." "Wow! Does that really work?" exclaimed the guy from Chicago "You bet it does." was the response. "Would you be interested in selling that mirror? I'll give you $50 for it." offered the big city gent. "Well, okay." said the country guy. After the money was transferred, the city fisherman asked, "By the way, how many did you catch this week?" The country local, grinned and said, "You're the sixth."
