>From Walter, the Stonecarver at http://stonecarver.com The current phone number for Obamacare (Obama's healthcare) now is 1-800-318-2596 which spells out 1-800-f1uckyo Not as naughty. Sorry about the misinformation yesterday!
He was on the bus where he normally gets his lunch stolen when he brought out a bottle that had what looked like small brown balls in it. He then, making sure no one was looking, secretly took from his pocket some milk duds and started popping them in his mouth, as obvious to the rest of the kids as possible, making yum yum noises. The bully, without asking, snatched the jar from Ken's hand and asked, "What's in the bottle that you are making such a big deal of?" "Well, they're smart pills." "Smart pills?" the bully asked, then opened the jar and popped a couple of the foreign brown balls in his mouth. "Pweeuuweppblahhh!!" he reacted. "What is this stuff? It tastes like rabbit turds!!" "Do you eat a lot of rabbit turds to be able to recognize them so quickly? Or are you getting smarter already?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Kristi Steuber, 41, Wesley Chapel, Floriduh Jailed for Bottomless DUI Safari Kristi Steuber, a 41-year-old teacher's aide at Paul R Smith Middle School, was jailed Saturday after she was allegedly caught driving drunk with no pants on. According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Steuber was stopped early Saturday morning when a deputy clocked her traveling 69 miles-per-hour in a 55-mph zone. When the deputy approached the driver's window and smelled the odor of alcohol, Steuber was asked to step out of the vehicle to complete a field sobriety test. That's when the deputy realized that Steuber was completely nude from the waist down. Steuber, according to the arrest affidavit, didn't realize that she had no pants on. Deputies pointed out her lack of clothing four times before she finally understood what they were saying and put some pants on. Steuber's blood alcohol level was measured at 0.135 and 0.137 after failing a field sobriety test. She was booked into the Pasco County Jail and charged with DUI. Tech Support Pits From: Darla Re: XP fearmongering Dear Webby, I wrote to you back in January regarding the no support issue for XP after April 8th. I’ve been reading more info & getting more confused. I have a couple of question’s to ask you because I don’t want to have to buy a new computer right now. If I keep my old computer with XP & continue to use Internet Explorer & Outlook Express (Also use Kasperksy) will I be ok from Hacker's etc ? Or would I be any safer using Chrome as my default browser while still using Outlook Express ? A employee at a "store" that sells computers said I could keep XP and change to Chrome and still be able to use Outlook Express for my mail. Thank you so much for your time, Darla Dear Darla Your XP with Kasperski and IE and Outlook Express will continue to function as usual. Just because you are cute and sexy, that does not mean the hackers will stop trying to break into banks and government, and suddenly focus on you. Keep in mind that industry and commerce uses 55% Linux and 45% XP. The ones that use XP all have a Linux "Live CD' in a drawer and can switch to Linux in minutes. All the store POS (Point Of Sale) machines run fine on Linux, but nobody in their right mind would try to run them on W7. For W7 and W8 they would have to replace the machines. While that would delight Microsoft and their Asian computer manufacturing businesses, industry and commerce does not consider that a justifiable business expense, not when everything runs just fine on XP or Linux. Any hostile action by Microsoft against XP users will just drive Industry and Commerce to Linux. So, don't panic about the sales hype. Outlook Express is on Death Row. It would probably be a good idea to start getting used to an email program, that is viable. I still use Eudora, and have since 1993. The modern version of it, using the source code of it, is Thunderbird. I have never heard anything bad about it. You might want to look at Thunderbird and get familiar with it. The major difference between Eudora and Thunderbird is that Thunderbird has a Linux version. That way, if you some day have to replace your XP when it dies of old age, and you get fed up with W8 and switch to Linux, you are already comfortable with the email program. The same goes for browsers. FireFox is the same on Windows and Linux. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keep Toothbrush In Cabinet We have all heard keeping a toothbrush in the vicinity of a flushing toilet is not good, as it can catch what sprays into the air, ick! So, all it takes is a wood bathroom cabinet and cup hooks, problem easily solved. By linda h. Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
A nurse noticed a man in golf attire pacing up and down out- side the operating room where another golfer who had a golf ball driven down his throat, was being treated. "Is he a relative of yours?" the nurse, stepping outside the room, asked the pacing golfer. "No," replied the man, "That's my ball!"

>From Casey When I was a child my family used to sometimes take our vacations, in British Columbia. In those days all Canadians appreciated their American neighbors. We had a favorite place to visit, mostly because of the fine fishing. It was at a Lake that was about 30 miles long and a 1/2 mile wide. While we were around our campfire in the evening the local Indians would go from camp to camp selling their wares. They would also tell of the Legends of the area. This one Legend always stuck in my mind. It seemed that on this particular Lake two Indian Tribes made their homes. They were, however, at War, with one another from years before. There was an Indian Maiden in one Camp who was in love with a young Brave in the other Camp. They used to stand, on the shore, each on their respective side of the Lake, and chant Indian love calls to each other...even though they were warned by their Chiefs that nothing could ever come of it. One day they just could not stand being apart any longer. That evening, on a cold Fall night, they each jumped into the Lake and swam towards each other in the Moonlight. When they reached each other in the center of the Lake, they embraced and eventually froze to death. This act so im- pressed the Brave's Tribe that they named the Lake after the young man. I will never forget those wonderful vacations that we spent at "Lake Stupid".
THESE ARE ACTUAL EXCERPTS FROM STUDENT SCIENCE EXAM PAPERS: Charles Darwin was a naturalist who wrote the organ of the species. Benjamin Franklin produced electricity by rubbing cats backwards. The theory of evolution was greatly objected to because it made man think. Three kinds of blood vessels are arteries, vanes and caterpillers. The process of turning steam back into water again is called conversation. The Earth makes one resolution every 24 hours. To collect fumes of sulfur, hold a deacon over a flame in a test tube. Algebraical symbols are used when you do not know what you are talking about. The pistol of a flower is its only protection against insects. Dew is formed on leaves when the sun shines down on them and makes them perspire. A super-saturated solution is one that holds more than it can hold. A triangle which has an angle of 135 degrees is called an obscene triangle. When you haven't got enough iodine in your blood you get a glacier. For fractures: to see if the limb is broken, wiggle it gently back and forth. To remove dust from the eye, pull the eye down over the nose. For asphyxiation: apply artificial respiration until the patient is dead. When you smell an odorless gas, it is probably carbon monoxide.
