But I have never been able to make out the numbers. *We say the cause of perfume disappearing is evaporation. Evaporation gets blamed for a lot of things people forget to put the top on. *Clouds just keep circling the earth around and around. And around.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Joseph Wantz 26 West Boca, Floriduh Robber pretends to be witness after pizza heist Pizza delivery man robbed at gunpoint in West Boca West Boca man accused of robbing a pizza delivery man tried to come forward as a witness and accused his cousin of being the robber, according to a Palm Beach County sheriff's arrest report. Joseph Wantz, 26, faces charges of robbery and aggravated assault with a firearm after the robbery on Tuesday. The Pizza Hut delivery man of two years said he went to a home in the 11000 block of Watergate Circle on 10:30 p.m. after getting an order for $107 worth of pizza, bread sticks and soda. The caller said the food was for a party and then another phone call from another number had a woman asking the driver to bring cash for change, according to the report. But when the driver got there, he told a deputy he grew suspicious when he saw no cluster of cars for a party. That's when Wantz put a gun to the delivery man's head and demanded all the money and food before walking away, according to the report. A deputy said he learned two people had stepped forward as witnesses. One of them was Wantz, who told the deputies he saw the robbery and that his cousin did it, according to the report. As deputies, they got a call on Wednesday about a disturbance between Wantz and another man at a residence. Inside the home, deputies said they saw two empty pizza boxes in the trash. After the delivery man identified Wantz in a photo lineup as the robber, investigators questioned a friend of Wantz's. She said Wantz came up to her at about 1 a.m. Wednesday and showed her a gun and told her he did a "lick," or robbery. Deputies said the gun later was found to be a BB gun. When deputies questioned Wantz, he implicated his cousin in the robbery, the report said. He said his cousin looked similar to him. He went on to say he wasn't "the only one going down for this," according to the report. Wantz was booked into Palm Beach County Jail, where he is held without bail. Tech Support Pits From: Vince Re: Keyboard in the dishwasher Dear Webby! My wife put my fashionably dirty keyboard into the dishwasher. It looks great now, but is it safe to plug in again? Vince Dear Vince Most modern keyboards can handle that without any problem. Take the screws off the back and take the back off, and let it dry half a day face-up and half a day face-down. After that, attach the back cover again and try it. Most likely it will work just fine. Have FUN! DearWebby

"HANG HIM HIGH, BOYS!! ...Okay, now a little to the left. Oooh! Stop right there. Perfect!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Problems with Fabric Dryer Sheets I bought a new dryer and continued using those fabric dryer sheets. This dryer would kick off with the clothes not dry. I was thinking the timer was bad so called out a repairman. He changed the sensor in the dryer and told us those "dryer sheets" had coated it, causing a false signal that turned off the dryer. He told us to stop using them. Now we only use liquid with our wash and no more trouble. By Kenneth B. [1] ______________________________________________________
