Mrs. Spiegel was called to serve for jury duty, but asked to be excused because she didn't believe in capital punishment and didn't want her personal thoughts to prevent the trial from running its proper course. The public defender liked her thoughtfulness, and tried to convince her that she was appropriate to serve on the jury. "Madam," he explained, "This is not a murder trial! It's a simple civil lawsuit. A wife is bringing this case against her husband because he gambled away the $12,000 he had promised to use to remodel the kitchen for her birthday." "Well, okay," agreed Mrs. Spiegel, "I'll serve. I guess I could be wrong about capital punishment after all."
Sixty-one years ago, Herman James, a North Carolina mountain man, was drafted by the Army. On his first day in basic training, the Army issued him a comb. That afternoon the Army barber sheared off all his hair. On his second day, the Army issued Herman a toothbrush. That afternoon the Army dentist yanked seven of his teeth. On the third day, the Army issued him a jock strap. The Army has been looking for Herman for 61 years.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Tina Lunn, 37, Braintree, MA Arrested After Giving Cops Fake Name Of Wanted Person Tip: If you give cops a fake name, make sure it's not that of a person wanted for more serious crimes than the small infraction you're accused of committing. Boston transit police were slapping Tina Lunn with a citation for smoking in a non-smoking area, when she allegedly tried to avoid any penalties by giving a fake name and birth date. However, there was an arrest warrant out for a person with the name that Lunn gave police, MyFoxBoston reports. Although the officer informed Lunn about the arrest warrant, she didn't reveal that she had given a fake name. In fact, she went through the entire booking process using her new assumed name, TPDNews.com reports. Eventually, officers discovered Lunn's real identity. Officers said they also discovered that Lunn had several warrants out under her real name, including three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, kidnapping, larceny, and illegal possession of chemical mace, according to Boston.com. Lunn was then booked under her real name and charged with brandishing a false name, She was also given a citation for smoking, according to police. Tech Support Pits From: Victor Re: Spam with just pictures or exe files Dear Webby, I am getting inundated with spam that has no text, just pictures or PDF or exe files. Every time I make a new filter, they seem to come up with a new file type. How do you deal with those? Victor Dear Victor That spam is generated by a virus. I don't really want to dump mail that has pictures attached, so I looked for a typo or anomaly typical for that type of spam. Since most spammers are rather dumb, it's usually quite easy to find something that you don't see in legitimate emails. With this filter I use an abnormal head to body boundary as the trigger. This filter dumps about 2000 spams from my mail per day, unseen, automatically. If the entire header contains "="----=_" or "----------bound--" then automatically (without warning or notification) delete the message. This filter takes priority over the friends list. Pick anything you see only in any type of spam and not in legitimate mail. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Shop Once a Week Shopping only once a week and going to the store on your busiest day is the key to spending less on groceries. Over the past few months I have stuck to a simple rule: Grocery shopping once a week. If you are not in the store, you cannot spend money, you can't fall prey to slick marketing and "buy more, save more" types of incentives. With the exception of baby items (formula, diapers) I have found that the once a week schedule works just fine. If we run out of milk or eggs, I just become more creative by using other stuff and patiently wait until "shopping day". By Bella Swan from Forks, WA http://www. thriftyfun.com/

>From Marnie After I had injured one of my shins for the umpteenth time, my doctor suggested I wear some sort of protection. Remembering the shin guards I wore when I played soccer over 60 years ago, I went to a local sporting goods store. I'm a petite, elderly woman, so when a young man came to help me, I said, "Don't laugh, but I'm looking for a pair of shin guards for soccer." "Okay," he said with a completely straight face. "What position do you play?"
Mary was almost crazy with her three young kids. She complained to her best friend Judy: "They're driving me nuts! They give me no rest! I'm half way to the funny farm!" "What you need," said Judy, "is a playpen. So Mary bought a playpen. A few days later, Judy called to ask how things were going. "Superb! I can't believe it," Mary said. "I get in that pen with my laptop, a coffee, a chocolate bar, and the kids don't bother me for hours!"
