Thanks to Linda for this story: As the owner of a 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 problem. Expecting the worst, I braced myself for his diagnosis. When he came back in, he was smiling. "It's apple juice," he said.

Since this is their first party and the wife hasn't done much cooking, the husband suggests they order out for Chinese food and she could bake a cake for dessert. She agrees, but on Friday afternoon, the wife calls her husband in tears. "The only recipe I can find is for a cake that will feed four," she says. "Why don't you just double the recipe?" her husband asks. Just before quitting time the husband gets another call from her, and this time she is frantic. "I just can't do it," she says. "It's impossible." "Now, now, what's the matter?" "Well, I doubled everything, just like you said," she tells him, "and it's ready to go in the oven." "Then what's the problem?" he asks. The wife sobs. "The book says that the cake must be baked at 350 degrees. I've checked the oven and it doesn't go up to 700 degrees!" "That's probably metric, just bake it at 350, but don't double the time!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Wilhelmina Rodenhuis, 60, Grover Beach, California Woman, who deliberately sprayed weedkiller into a 7 year old girl's face. Grover Beach police arrested a woman Wednesday evening for spraying a child in the face with a weed killer. Detectives have not yet determined a motive, but police say that 60-year-old Julie Wilhelmina Rodenhuis approached a seven-year-old and sprayed pesticide in the child’s eyes. The incident occurred around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday in a condominium complex at 676 North 12th Street in Grover Beach. Family members immediately treated the child until medical responders arrived. The child received further treatment at a local hospital and was released. Officers charged Rodenhuis with child endangerment, assault with a deadly weapon and battery with serious child endangerment. Rodenhuis could receive addition charges. She is currently in San Luis Obispo County Jail on a $100,000 bond. No site lists a motive, just that Rodenhuis has been involved in many neighborhood disputes, that some have permanent restraining orders against her, and pretty well all local commenters agree that she is crazy. Tech Support Pits From: Lynn Re: Google Chrome infection? Dear Webby: It seems my Google chrome has an infected file because my McAfee (I don't believe it is really McAfee that keeps popping this window up)keeps popping up a window that says a Trojan has been found and if I restart my computer, it will be fixed. I restarted 4 times and the pop up that says it is from McAfee still says it has found and infected file and to restart my computer. I did a complete scan with my McAfee and it says: no issues found. I closed Google Chrome and am now using Firefox and the issue is gone. It only happens when I am using Google Chrome. Should I uninstall Chrome and re-install it as I like it better than Firefox? Any help you can give me will be appreciated. Many thanks C. Dear C Whatever you do, do NOT restart! That is a common ploy of many infections for installing a new super-user above you. Quite possibly your McAfee has been compromised, just like your Google Chrome. Now you need stronger medicine. See that big link at the top of the side menu? MalwareBytes That should clean the crap out of your machine. After that, uninstall McAfee and Chrome. Run Malwarebyts again to make sure the machine is clean. Then you can re-install a fresh McAfee, if you want it, and Chrome. Quite likely the infection started, when you agreed to something or other. That causes mcAfee to bow out and list that as something you want and agreed to, Malwarebytes is not that polite with crooked shit. No matter who agreed to it, out it goes. When Microsoft stopped allowing the round clock "gadet", I searched for an alternative and eventually found a site with hundreds of clocks. I picked one, and during the installation of it, hit Enter without reading the small print one time too often. And got infected. McAfee allowed that crap, since I had agreed to it. GRRRRR! So I installed MalwareBytes It cleaned out not only THAT infection, but a few more, that I suspected, but never had the time to hunt dwon. THAT is why MalwareBytes got the spot of honor on top of the recommended resources in the side menu. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Exchange Keys With A Neighbor My neighbor and I exchanged house keys so that we could enter each other's homes in case of an emergency or to feed pets while one of us is on vacation, etc. I bought two magnetic key holders and gave one to my neighbor to hide (I know where) on her porch for my house key and I put the other one under my metal mailbox with my neighbor's key in it. If someone happened to find the key holder, the key wouldn't work in the lock where the key is hidden and I doubt they would go around trying the neighbor's doors. Also, her kids often forget their keys and can get their spare after school to get into their own house even if I'm not home. By Susan from Pennsylvania Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

>From Ray I'm also a counselor who helps coordinate support groups for visually-impaired adults. Many participants have a condition known as macular degeneration, which makes it difficult for them to distinguish facial features. I had just been assigned to a new group and was introducing myself. Knowing that many in the group would not be able to see me well, I jokingly said, "For those of you who can't see me, I've been told that I look like a cross between Paul Newman and Robert Redford." Immediately, one woman called out, "We're not THAT blind!"
A Swiss guy, looking for directions, pulls up at a bus stop where two Americans are waiting. "Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asks. The two Americans just stare at him. "Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?" he tries. The two continue to stare. "Parlare Italiano?" No response. "Hablan ustedes Espanol?" Still nothing. The Swiss guy drives off, extremely disgusted. The first American turns to the second and says, "Y'know, maybe we should learn a foreign language." "Why?" says the other. "That guy knew four languages, and it didn't do him any good." +
