I always find it more difficult to say the things I mean than the things I don't. --- W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965) Here's something to think about: How come you never see a headline like 'Psychic Wins Lottery'? --- Jay Leno (1950 - ) Let him that would move the world, first move himself." --- Socrates

Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, "Why is the bride dressed in white?" "Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life," her mother tried to explain, keeping it simple. The child thought about this for a moment, then said, "So why is the groom wearing black?" "Next time you go visit daddy, ask him."
Cindy is taking the driving portion of her driver's license exam. She handles most of the maneuvers quite well. She has a little trouble parallel parking, however, and winds up a couple of feet from the curb. "Could you get a little closer?" the examiner asks. Cindy cheerfully unbuckles her seat belt and slides over to the examiner. "Now what?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jessica Rocha, Reedsport, Oregon Woman says she was playing 'the zombie game' when she broke into another woman's home and bit her on the face COOS BAY, Ore. (AP) Authorities in Oregon say a woman has been arrested after breaking in to a house, pushing a woman down the stairs, pulling her hair, biting her on the face and telling her victim she was playing "the zombie game." Coos County sheriff's Sgt. Pat Downing says Jessica Rocha broke into the home in coastal city of Lakeside early Monday. He says she was drunk and likely high. Downing says there is no definite explanation for the zombie reference. He says Rocha had property with a sticker that referenced a video game featuring zombies. Deputies also speculate she may have been influenced by a scarecrow contest in the area. She is held on $77,500 bail and faces arraignment Monday on multiple charges, including assault. Tech Support Pits From: Lily Re: Is it true about Flashlight Trojans? At 01:05 PM 10/13/2014, you wrote: Dear Webby, LOVE your newsletter, I've been a subscriber for years but this is the first time that I've written you. I wanted to ask if its really true about the flashlight app. That is really scary. Thanks, Lily Dear Lily Yes, it is true. If your flashlight app is more than 2 KB, then you now have a Trojan deep down in the operating system, that is mining and transmitting your data. The Flashlight apps also track and report your location! Somebody KNOWS when you enter the bakery isle at Walmart or walk past the porn shop! If you have never used your phone to pay bills or do any bank or credit card stuff, then it just finks on all your addresses, and probably tells all of them what kind of neat flashlight it is. And of course it reports your exact location! Even the FTC got uptight about that last summer. If you have or plan to use your phone for any banking, save your pictures and other data on http://DropBox.com, and get your phone provider to reset it to factory standard, because the OS is infected. The alternative is to destroy the silly thing and next time refrain from downloading any large app. An honest flashlight app is only 1 - 2 KB. It is just a blank page flashing faster than the eye can see, just like the LED traffic lights and vehicle brake lights. It does not take a Megabyte for that. If you see the file size to be large, then the app has a malicious payload. Music and movies of course are large, but those are usually clean. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Wipe Down Library Books When I get books from the library, I use a spray bottle with vinegar and spray the book and wipe it down with a paper towel. The vinegar kills germs and you can see a lot of dirt removed on the paper towel. This keeps a lot of germs out of my house and off my hands. By fancy61 [6] http://www. thriftyfun.com/

A young couple decided they needed an au pair, and arranged for a girl to come over from Northern Finland. When she arrived, the wife asked, "Can you cook?" "No," said the girl, "My mother always did that." "Can you do housework?" asked the wife. "No, my oldest sister always did that." "Well," said the wife, "You'd better just look after the children." "I don't know how," said the girl. "My youngest sister always did that." "What can you do, then?" asked the wife, in desperation. "Well," said the Finnish girl brightly, "I can milk reindeer."
A farmer lived on a quiet rural highway. But, as time went by, the traffic slowly built up at an alarming rate. The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day. So one day he called the sheriff's office and said, "You've got to do something about all of these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens." "What do you want me to do?" asked the sheriff. "I don't care, just do something about those drivers." So the next day he had the county go out and put up a sign that said: SLOW: SCHOOL CROSSING. Three days later the farmer called the sheriff and said, "You've got to do something about these drivers. The 'school crossing sign seems to make them go faster." So, again, the sheriff sends out the county and they put up a new sign: SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY. And that really sped them up. So the farmer called and called and called everyday for three weeks. Finally, he asked the sheriff, "Your signs are doing no good. Is it all right for me to put up my own sign?" The sheriff told him, "Sure thing, put up your own sign." He was going to let the farmer do just about anything in order to have him stop calling. Well, the sheriff got no more calls from the farmer. Three weeks after the farmers last call, the sheriff decided to call him. "How's the problem with those drivers. Did you put up your sign?" "Oh, I sure did. And not one chicken has been killed since then. I've got to go. I'm very busy." And he hung up the phone. The sheriff thought to himself, "I'd better go to that farmer's house and look at that sign. There might be something there that WE could use to slow down drivers." So the sheriff drove out to the farmer's house, and he saw the sign. It was a whole sheet of plywood. And written in large yellow letters were the words: SLOW: NUDIST COLONY.
