A customer in a bakery was observed carefully examining all the rich-looking pastries displayed on trays in the glass cases. When a clerk approached him and asked, "What would you like?" he answered, "I'd like that chocolate-covered, cream-filled doughnut, that jelly-filled doughnut and that cheese Danish." Then with a sigh he added, "But I'll take an oat-bran muffin."
Approaching the counter at a local post office, said to the stern-faced woman on the other side, "Are you the Postmistress?" "No!" she replied testily. "I'm the Postmaster. Uncle Sam doesn't pay me enough to be anyone's mistress."
A young woman was driving the speed limit in freeway traffic. Car after car passed her, so she speeded up. Still car after car passed her. Suddenly, in the rear view mirror, she saw the flashing lights of a police cruiser behind her. She pulled over and rolled down her window. The patrol officer walked up and asked her, "Do you know why I stopped you?" The young woman replied, "Yes. I was the only slow enough for you to catch!" "No, you got a burned out tail light."

Sylvia Mahiah, 33, in a California jail now California woman, who became the dumbest dope ever A California woman who had 27 pounds of methamphetamine hidden in her car successfully got through a Customs checkpoint last night, but then mistakenly drove her vehicle into a lot reserved for suspect vehicles to be examined by federal agents. During the ensuing search of Sylvia Mashiah’s car, which had not been ordered, investigators found 17 packages of meth concealed in the 2006 Ford Focus’s rear quarter panels. The 33-year-old Mashiah, was alone in her car when she approached the Otay Mesa Port of Entry at 7:45 PM Monday. The border crossing is one of three that connects San Diego with Tijuana, Mexico. As reported in a probable cause statement, Mashiah, a Los Angeles resident, was cleared for entry into the U.S. after a “primary” inspection. However, she “drove the vehicle to the secondary lot where Customs and Border Protection Officers inspected the vehicle.” She probably was planning to park there and wait for her accomplice to walk across without any dope on her or him. A “secondary” inspection involves a more thorough questioning of the driver, a closer inspection of the vehicle, and a canine review of the auto. The “secondary” inspection is usually ordered due to the suspicions of the agent who first contacted the driver (as well as any passengers). After tearing apart Mashiah’s Ford, agents found 12.45 kilos of methamphetamine. As a result, she was arrested on a felony drug importation count, carrying a MINIMUM five-year prison term.

From: Bill Re: Change start-up sound in Windows 7 Dear Webby! In XP I had great, IMHO, logon and logoff sounds. I am unable to reproduce them in W7. I right-click on the desktop and select "personalize"/"sounds" as the option. Scrolling down to "Logoff" then "Logon", I browse to the desired sounds and click "Apply". The sound screen window changes from "windows default" to "windows default (modified)". When I reboot, I still get the barely audible windows sounds. I know that this is not a huge problem, but I would love to be able to "personalize" my computer sounds. Thanks. Bill Dear Bill Due to an embarrassing screw-up that method only works in the Pakistani version of Windows, but not in the English versions, and the Europeans are not happy either. If you feel comfortable hacking the imagers.dll, which I do not recommend, then you could do it by following some complicated instructions. But sometimes that does not work. Luckily some good people got fed up with that situation and created a program to do all that for you. You need to have your new start-up sound ready in .wav format, not MP3 or MP4 and just renamed to WAV, but actually converted to WAV. Then download the Startup-Sound Changer, and follow the very simple instructions. PLAY REPLACE RESTORE EXIT That's all folks! No, I do not know why Microsoft has to be such a pain in the nuisance with even very simple stuff like the start-up sound. Have FUN! DearWebby

An older friend, recently returned from her home town in North Carolina, says they've spruced up the churchyard cemetery since her last visit several years back. "Lots of new greenery," she said. "And families are together now." "Together?" I asked, puzzled. "Well, years ago they never much worried where they buried someone because everyone was a neighbor anyhow. They'd just dig a grave wherever it seemed to balance things. But they've redone it so people are with their children and grandchildren, instead of scattered all over." "You mean they exhumed all those people and re-buried them?" "Oh no," she said. "They just moved the headstones. Everyone agrees it looks ever so much nicer."
A man died and was taken to his place of eternal torment by the devil. As he passed sulphurous pits and shrieking sinners, he saw a man he recognized as a politician snuggling up to a beautiful woman. "That's unfair!" he cried. "I have to roast for all eternity, and that crook gets to spend it with a beautiful woman." "Shut up", barked the devil, jabbing the man with his pitchfork. "Who are you to question that woman's punishment?"
