A little boy walked up to the librarian to check out a book entitled "COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE FOR MOTHERS." When the librarian asked him if it was for his mother, he answered 'no.' "Then why are you checking it out?" "Because," said the little boy confidently, "I just started collecting moths last month!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Raymond Frolander, 18, Daytona Beach, Florida Dad's 911 call: I've beaten up my son's assailant A father in Daytona Beach, Florida, called 911 early Friday morning to report that when he found someone sexually abusing his 11-year-old son, he beat the assailant until he was "nice and knocked out" for police to apprehend. So far, the father is not facing any charges. CNN affiliate CFN 13 asked Daytona Beach Police Chief Michael Chitwood whether he had any issue with the father's reaction Friday. Chitwood responded, "Not as a police chief and not as a father." The father's identity and that of his son were not released to protect the identity of the minor as an alleged sexual abuse victim. The father, who sounds collected but enraged during the 911 call, told Volusia County emergency dispatch that 18-year-old Raymond Frolander was close to the family and was in the apartment while the father was out. The father says that when he got home, the look on Frolander's face made him think something was wrong. The father says Frolander's pants fell down to his ankles "and nothing else needed to be said" when he saw exposed genitals. According to the charging affivadit, the 11-year-old victim told authorities that Frolander had performed oral sex on him and instructed the boy to fondle him. The document says the boy told authorities that Frolander began abusing him a few years ago. It also says Frolander told police, "I'm guilty." When the 911 dispatcher asked the father whether he used weapons to knock out Frolander, the father told the dispatcher, "my fist and my foot." The father explained that Frolander was breathing, but not speaking, "in a puddle of blood" on the floor "and I loved him up until 15 minutes ago." At times, the dad is heard talking to the suspect, at one point saying, "You are damn lucky, boy, that I love my God." When Daytona Beach police officers arrived, according to the charging affidavit, they saw Frolander "laying motionless on the living room floor with several knots on his face and bleeding from his mouth." He was treated and released from a hospital before he was questioned. Frolander faces a charge of sexual battery of a child and was in the Volusia County Jail late Friday. He had no bond. Chitwood said that the 18-year-old was like a family member to the boy, "and the father acted as a father should act." Chitwood told CFN 13 that it's not unusual for young victims to be afraid to report sexual abuse because they feel threatened or fear that they will get in trouble. Tech Support Pits From: Patti Re: Alternating Highspeed accounts Dear Webby My computer is for fun and a bit of research and after 5 years I've decided it's time to get off dial up. My problem: 6 months in Michigan, 6 months in Arizona. I've looked and looked at high speed providers and can't find one that will work between the two areas and also while I'm on the road. My present provider, Corecomm, works in all three areas but wow, it's getting slower and slower. You have to realize this "olde" gal is slowly coming into the next century, but good grief, there is so much technology to learn and small town living doesn't offer much help Can you offer any advice?? Having a lot of fun, Patti Dear Patti Call Corecom 1-877-267-3266 Customer Service or Tech support 1-800-715-7873 and complain about the lack of speed. Most ISPs gradually reduce your connection and give your bandwidth to those, who complain. You have to wait until Monday. They have nobody there on the weekend. You can, at the same time inquire how much their DSL would be. While on the road, you'll just have to go to hotels and motels that have high speed. As a rule of thumb, 3-star have wired Internet or free local dial-out, 4 star and up have wireless high speed Internet. Most McDonalds have wireless Internet, and once you have the password and the connection, you can usually take a not quite closed laptop out into the parking lot. Regarding the migration, you can also call Earthlink and ask them if they still have a Snowbird Special. Get the phone numbers for both locations ready before you call. They do have a fairly straightforward method for relocating, but best is if you talk to them. Have FUN! DearWebby

In the admitting office of our hospital, some patients were filling out forms, others were being interviewed and still others were being escorted to their rooms. An elderly woman hesitatnly entered my cubicle. She had completed her admitting forms and, upon my request, handed me her insurance cards. I typed the neccessary information and then asked her the reason for her coming to the hospital. "Just to visit a friend," she said, "but this had taken so long, I'm not sure if she is still alive."
