Who sent me the collection of pictures, from which I took

The trouble with America is that there are far too many wide-open spaces surrounded by teeth. --- Charles Luckman In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move. --- Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001)
>From Moe SAFE AT HOME ... AT LAST! I've torn out my alarm system & de-registered from the Neighborhood Watch. I've got two Pakistani flags raised in my front garden, one at each corner and the black flag of ISIS in the center. The local police, CIA, Secret Service, and other intelligence services are all watching my house 24/7. I've never felt safer. ------------ I bet they defragment and optimize your computer too, to make sure they are not missing anything!
Can you find the names of 16 books from the Bible in the paragraph below without the aid of Google? (One minister found 15 of the books in 20 minutes, but it took him weeks to find the last one.) I once made the remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu; It kept people looking so hard for facts, and for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalized and on occasion spread over more than one word. But the truth finally struck home to numbers of our readers. To others it was a real job. I want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. A little old lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now, for there really are sixteen names of books of the Bible in this paragraph. No cheating!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD Karla Farmer, 18, Spartanburg, South Carolina Embarrassing Shoplifting Spree At Mall Store This week’s most embarrassing shoplifting arrest comes from South Carolina, where police yesterday nabbed an 18-year-old woman for stealing Rock Hard erection cream, handcuffs, and Deep Throat desensitizing spray from a mall store. Karla Farmer first swiped the cream and spray from the “love unit” of a Spencer’s store, according to a police report. After exiting the business, she returned a few minutes later to nick the handcuffs, investigators allege. Mall security subsequently detained Farmer and handcuffed the teenager when she fought with them and tried to flee. When police searched Farmer’s purse, they recovered the Spencer’s merchandise, as well as a bra and two pairs of underwear apparently stolen from a Victoria’s Secret location in the WestGate mall in Spartanburg. Seen in the above mug shot, Farmer was charged with shoplifting and booked into the county jail on the misdemeanor count. Tech Support Pits From: Lucy Re: Eye strain Dear Webby I am working on a large but very important project, but lately after half a day or so, my eyes get tired and sandy. When that happens, I can't concentrate and all I want to do is go for a nap. Is there a solution for that? Lucy Dear Lucy First check the air currents in the room. If necessary, get a smoker to assist you. Especially in a darkened room a flashlight and some smoke will quickly tell you if air from anywhere is bouncing off the monitor or keyboard into your face and drying your eyes. If it is, deflect the air somehwre else. Secondly, raise the monitor or lower the chair so that you sit in the sexy positioning like the typists before the computer age used, chest out, back and neck straight, head slightly raised so that a ruler placed under your chin and pointing forward, points slightly upward, not level or down. Your neck and head circulation will improve instantly, and your eyes will feel a lot better. As a fringe benefit, especially if you combine that body posture with a silly grin about it, works as an anti-depressant and mood optimizer. Have FUN! DearWebby

A father noticed that his son was spending way too much time playing computer games. In an effort to motivate the boy into focusing more attention on his schoolwork, the father said to his son, "When Abe Lincoln was your age, he was studying books by the light of the fireplace." The son replied, "When Lincoln was your age, he was The President of The United States."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Decorating for Halloween We try to make a fun Halloween experience. Walking through to get their candy is a lot of fun to watch. My husband and I made simple grave stones, coffin, and lots of body parts for the giant spider I made. We decorate with cheap masks bought at the dollar stores and costumes that were reduced after Halloween, for yard haunters, put up with just wooden stakes made into crosses. I try to buy something cheap each year to add to the decor. We have a lot of wailing, screeching ghosts and zombies, witches and skeletons. And lots of sounds. Happy Halloween {^;^} By Ida M. from Toledo, OH http://www.thriftyfun.com/

The preacher was having a heart-to-heart talk with a backslider of his flock, whose drinking of moonshine invariably led to quarreling with his neighbors, and occasional shotgun blasts at some of them. "Can't you see, Ben," intoned the parson, "that not one good thing comes out of this drinking?" "Well, I sort of disagree there," replied the backslider. "It makes me miss the folks I shoot at."
>From Jack My Dad and I were talking the other night about love and marriage. He told me that he knew as early as their wedding what marriage to my Mom would be like. It seems the minister asked my Mom, "Do you take this man to be your husband." And she said, "I do." Then the minister asked my Dad, "Do you take this woman to be your wife," and my Mom said, "He better!"
Thanks to Sandie for this story: A good piece of chocolate has about 200 calories. As I enjoy two servings per night and a few more on weekends, I consume 3,500 calories of chocolate in a week, which equals to one pound of weight per week. Therefore, in the last three and a half years, I have had a chocolate caloric intake of about 180 pounds. I only weigh 165 pounds, so without chocolate, I would have wasted away to nothing about three months ago. I owe my life to chocolate!
