It's so much easier to suggest solutions when you don't know too much about the problem. --- Malcolm Forbes (1919 - 1990)
This minister just had all of his remaining teeth pulled and new dentures were being made. The first Sunday, he only preached 10 minutes. The second Sunday, he preached only 20 minutes. But, on the third Sunday, he preached 1 hour 25 minutes. When asked about this by some of the congregation, he responded this way: The first Sunday, my gums were so sore it hurt to talk. The second Sunday, my dentures were hurting a lot. The third Sunday, I accidentally grabbed my wife's dentures, AND I COULDN'T STOP TALKING!
A certain little girl, when asked her name, would reply, "I'm Mr. Sugarbrown's daughter." Her mother told her this was wrong, she must say, "I'm Jane Sugarbrown." The Vicar spoke to her in Sunday School, and said, "Aren't you Mr. Sugarbrown's daughter?" She replied, "I thought I was, but mother says I'm not."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Alicia Walicke, 22, Cedar Park, Texas Cedar Park woman stole wine to follow boyfriend to jail A woman told police she stole a bottle of cheap wine from a Cedar Park gas station so she could get arrested and see her boyfriend in the Williamson County Jail, according to a warrant. Cedar Park resident Alicia Walicke, 22, was charged with theft. Police found her Wednesday next to a Shell gas station at 1405 Whitestone Blvd. drinking a $3.99 bottle of Mad Dog 20/20 she had just stolen from the station, the warrant said. “Walicke advised her boyfriend was arrested earlier that evening by Cedar Park Officers and it was her fault so she wanted to make things right and go to jail,” according to the warrant. Mad Dog 20/20 is a slang word for a cheap wine made by Mogen David. Walicke has two previous convictions for theft, the warrant said. She was previously charged with assault against a public servant in March when she bit a Cedar Park police officer’s arm while officers were trying to restrain her after she became combative when they responded to a call about her making suicidal threats, a warrant said. Police believed she was under the influence of an unknown drug and were trying to get her medically evaluated, the warrant said. Walicke was released from the Williamson County Jail Friday after posting bond on bail set at $5,000, according to court records. Tech Support Pits From: Emily Re: How do you recognize PayPal scams? Dear Webby How could you jump that quickly to decide that the mail Len got was a scam? Couldn't it have been from PayPal after all? Emily Dear Emily I have dealt with PayPal for 14 or 15 years. They never send notices about anything expiring. They send notices about transactions, or notices, that you should log in and check this or that. However, PayPal NEVER sends a link in email. With MailWasher I see the real URL underlying links, and usually MailWasher recognizes those scams and flags them for deleting. Over the years I have seen countless of those scams, neatly flagged for deleting. Some of them are really funny, for example if they send an expiry notice to unsubscribe@webby.com, or to abuse@webby.com. Of course I don't waste time replying and inviting the scammer to show up at my door and collect some abuse, but I get a chuckle out of them anyway. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Shucking Corn Cut off both ends of the corn. Peel off all but 2 -3 layers of the husk. Then either steam for 8 - 10 minutes (depending on how many ears you have) or wrap in a damp towel and microwave for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes per ear. Using a clean towel or pot holder, peel the rest of the husk off. The silk will easily rub off with the husk. Be careful, the ear is hot. Source: This was on a youtube video By Judy Dreyer [4] If you like your corn tender but juicy enough, so that it sprays a bit when you chew it off the cob, there is a much easier way! Microwave or boil the corn whatever length of time your equipment takes. Cut off the stem end at the largest diameter point. Grab the corn at the opposite end with a pot holder, lift it up and squeeze. You may have to gently shake it a bit to help it slide out. The cob will slide down and out onto a plate without ANY silk or leaves. Salt and pepper, and enjoy! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

A little girl asked her mother, "Can I go outside and play with the boys?" Her mother replied, "No, you can't play with the boys, they're too rough." The little girl thought about it for a few moments and asked, "If I can find a smooth one, can I play with him?"
A man told his doctor that he wasn't able to do all the things that he used to do. When the examination was complete, he said, "Now, Doc, I can take it. Tell me in plain English what is wrong with me." "Well, in plain English," the doctor replied, "you're just a lazy old fart." "Okay," said the man. "Now give me the medical term so I can tell my wife."
