A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to "honor thy father and thy mother," she asked, "is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?" Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family of seven) answered with a sad and disappointed voice, "Thou shall not kill."
A man walks into a bar with a dog. The bartender says, "You can't bring that dog in here." "You don't understand," says the man. "This is no regular dog, he can talk." "Listen, pal," says the bartender. "If that dog can talk, I'll give you a hundred bucks." The man puts the dog on a stool, and asks him, "What's on top of a house?" "Roof!" "Right. And what's on the outside of a tree?" "Bark!" "And who's the greatest baseball player of all time?" "Ruth!" "I guess you've heard enough," says the man. "I'll take the hundred in twenties." The bartender is furious. "Listen, pal," he says, "get out of here before I belt you." As soon as they're on the street, the dog turns to the man and says, "Do you think I should have said 'DiMaggio'?"
Click through for the large picture This sector of the Green River canyon in eastern Utah is known as Bowknot Bend because of the way the river doubles back on itself. In this photograph taken by an astronaut on the ISS on January 22, 2014, the Green River appears dark because it lies in deep shadow, 300 m (1,000 ft) below the surrounding landscape. The yellow-tinged cliffs that face the rising sun give a sense of the steep canyon walls. The straight white line across the scene is the contrail from a jet liner flying over the canyon. (NASA)

According to the prosecutor's office, Dufault, a language arts teacher who has worked at Columbia High School in Maplewood for nine years, engaged in oral sex and vaginal intercourse with the students. The incidents allegedly occurred on multiple occasions, in Dufault's car and at the school. "Information came to the attention of school officials that she was engaged in sexual acts with boys," Carter said. The incidents allegedly began in 2013 and continued into the 2014 school year. Dufault, who, according to nbcnewyork.com, is the mother of two small children, is being held at the Essex County Correctional Facility in lieu of $500,000 bail. Tech Support Pits From: Earnie Re: What is Windows POS ? Dear Webby, I know most people would answer "Piece Of S..t", but I don't think that is the official name behind that abbreviation. What is it? Earnie Dear Earnie It stands for Point Of Sale. Windows POS, a basic version of XP, installed and pre-configured at the factory in China for networking with a central Linux machine in the manager's office or the basement of a store. The XP-POS is what you got in Billions of Point-Of-Sale computers in storea all over the world. That is why the XP usage numbers are still almost two times as high as ME, 2000, Vista, W7, W8, W8.1 combined. POS machines are also used in typing pools. They don't have Internet access, just an internal network. For writing formal letters or responses, where speed is more important than looking antsy-fancy pretty cute, XP machines are preferred. All those companies, that still use XP-POS machines have Linux "Live Cd"s or USB key-fobs ready and can switch to Linux in about 7 minutes. The users won't know the difference. The POS programs and the word processors and spreadsheets all have Linux versions. Now that you know where to get security updates until 2019, vacuum the dust-bunnies out of your old XP and take good care of it. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com "Sock It To Me" Cell Phone Case Ok. How many remember the TV show "Laugh In" from the late 60s - early 70s? The title of my tip originated from that show. I have a small cell phone. It's not a smart one, but it's fine for what I need it for. Anyway, my husband had purchased me a nice $15 case for it and I had the case for several years. Then I lost it and I would not spend another $15 to get a replacement case. Instead, I bought a pair of toddler socks. The phone fits perfectly down inside the sock and is easy to see in my purse. It protects my phone and serves its purpose. The added plus is I have a "spare case" if I should lose the sock. So "Sock It To Me." By Marsha Fleenor [7] http://www. thriftyfun.com/

A man in a hurry taking his 8-year-old son to school, made a turn at a red light where it was prohibited. "Uh-oh, I just made an illegal turn!" the man said. "Aw, Dad, it's okay" the son said. "The police car right behind us did the same thing."
A minister was asked to inform a man with a heart condition that he had just inherited a million dollars. Everyone was afraid the shock would give him a heart attack. So the minister went to the man's house and said, "Joe, what would you do if you inherited a million dollars?" And Joe said, "Well, pastor, I think I would give half of it to the church." At which the pastor fell over dead.
