Thanks to Sandie for this report: A hot red convertible with an equally hot woman driver raced by as my husband and his friend stopped to stare. "Wow," sighed Rick. "Nice." "Yeah," agreed his buddy, transfixed. "What color was the car?" I asked. They answered simultaneously, "Blonde."

The CIA loses track of one of its operatives, and so calls in one of their top spy hunters. The CIA boss says, "All I can tell you is that his name is Murphy and that he's somewhere in Ireland. If you think you've located him, tell him the code words, 'The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning.' If it's really him, he'll answer, 'Yes, and for mist at noon as well.'" So the spy hunter goes to Ireland and stops in a bar in one of the small towns. He says to the bartender, "Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for a guy named Murphy." The bartender replies, "You're going to have to be more specific because, around here, there are lots of guys named Murphy. There's Murphy the Baker, who runs the pastry shop on the next block. There's Murphy the Banker, who's president of our local savings bank. There's Murphy the Blacksmith, who works at the stables. And, as a matter of fact, my name is Murphy, too." Hearing this, the spy hunter figures he might as well try the code words on the bartender, so he says, "The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning." The bartender replies, "Oh, you're looking for Murphy the Spy. He lives next door, up on the second floor."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Derrick Price, 43, Orange County, Florida Running a strip club out of barber shop Get your ears lowered and your pants raised. That may have been the business model of a strip bar that was allegedly run out of a barber shop in Orange County, Florida. Undercover agents working for the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation conducted a many months long investigation of Super Fades barber shop before finally raiding the place early Sunday morning. MBI investigator Lt. Mike Gibson said the agents visited the barbershop by day and saw it turn into an illegal strip bar every Saturday night. “On each and every occasion they were serving alcohol and they had strippers. And, not strippers following local law, but strippers that went completely nude,” Gibson told WFTV TV. Along with the barber pole in front of Super Fades, there was a stripper pole installed inside the establishment. "That would have been a piece of equipment that was there even when they operated during the day while they acted as a barbershop," Gibson said, according to Agents purchased $20 worth of illegal vodka at Super Fades early Sunday morning before discovering one of the dancers was a 17-year-old female. "As we were conducting the investigation, we were able to identify one of the dancers being a juvenile, and that led to the need to speed the investigation up," Gibson told WESH TV. Derrick Price, 43, the owner of Super Fades, was arrested and charged with allowing a worker to engage in nudity, allowing a person under 18 in an adult entertainment establishment, operation of an establishment without a valid license and possession of alcohol without a license with intent to sell. He was released after posting bond and is due in court on Monday. The 17-year-old who was allegedly stripping was also arrested. Gibson said the stripping pole has since been removed. Tech Support Pits From: Steve Re: Kasperski vs McAfee vs Malwarebytes Dear Webby your efforts in your newsletter continue to be greatly appreciated, as they have for a few years now. How does the kaspersky internet security malware detection compare to malwarebytes anti-malware you now tout ? Are malware programs similar to anti-virus programs in the respect of you do not want to run two programs concurrently ? How does spy-bot fit into the malware picture, it does cookies not malware ? Again thank you for your time & sharing your wisdom. steve j. Dear Steve Kasperski is the equivalent of McAfee. Some months McAfee is a nose ahead, some months it's Kasperski. Both are huge companies and not really known for good personal support. However, they generally run fine and very rarely require contacting their support. You can consider those two, and Vipre as well, as heavy bombers. Slow, and reasonably reliable. They try to be a total solution for everything, including blocking spam. However, they are rather klutzy about that. It is best to disable their email section. The same goes for Vipre. MalwareBytes by comparison is a fighter plane. It can take care of really nasty trojans, which disable McAfee and Kasperski. Malwarebytes also goes after "agreed to" nuisance stuff, like pop up ads, browser redirection, search engine redirection, etc. MalwareBytes does not care who agreed to that kind of crap. It recognizes crap and flushes it. Both Kasperski and McAfee try to uninstall Malwarebytes. They seem to be really jealous and envious and start a silly pissing contest. Most recommendations are that you stick with McAfee or Kasperski or Vipre for continuous routine protection, and use MalwareBytes just for extreme problems or "agreed to" crap. I have run machines with just MalwareBytes, and found it to be sufficient. Spybot-Search&Destroy is free and will get some light-weight stuff. Because it is free, it is a good idea to try that first, before spending money. Have FUN! DearWebby

An excerpt from brilliant Kentucky state legislation. "No female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she be escorted by at least two officers or unless she be armed with a club." The following important amendment however is to be considered here: "The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds, nor shall it apply to male horses."
