We were eager to visit the rain forests near the coast, but we heard that snow slides had made some of the roads impassable. Although apprehensive about the conditions we might run into, we drove on. Sure enough, we had only gone a short way up the High Rain Forest road when we saw a sign that read, "Ice: 10 Miles." Five miles farther on, there was another sign that said, "Ice: 5 Miles." The next one read, "Ice: 1/2 Mile." We practically crept that half-mile. We finally came to the last sign. It was outside a small grocery store and it said, "Ice: $1.98." ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by Walter, The Stonecarver An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Julia Shields 45, Chattanooga, Tennessee Woman in body armor drove around Chattanooga shooting at people A woman dressed in body armor fired shots at multiple people yesterday afternoon, resulting in a police chase on Hixson Pike, which ended in the woman's arrest. Chattanooga Police officers first responded to a report of shots fired on 1300 Cloverdale around 3:52 p.m., according to a news release from the Chattanooga Police Department. Once the officers arrived on scene, they found two victims who said they were at a stop sign when the suspect, Julia Shields, pulled up in a dark colored sedan and fired shots into their vehicle, the release said. A short time after this incident, police received several additional calls reporting that Shields was pointing her firearm at people as she drove pass them. It was reported that she shot at another vehicle in the same area around 1300 Cloverdale Drive, and officers eventually located her sitting in her vehicle in the Stuart Heights Baptist Church Parking lot on Hixson Pike, the release states. Shields escaped the parking lot in her car and led officers on a chase down Highway 153 and Hixson Pike, and continued to point her firearm at vehicles as she passed them. The chase ended at the intersection of Cloverdale Drive and Koblan Drive, as Shields pointed her firearm at an officer, before being taken into custody without incident or injury. Shields has been charged with 3 counts of attempted first degree murder, seven counts of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, felony evading arrest, and felony reckless endangerment, the release says. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Daniel Re: Red X Dear Webby How do you get of the red x in a place where a picture should be? daniel [Free Avast Ad] Dear Daniel Tell the writer of that site, that he or she forgot to upload that picture.

Mrs. Jones was reading a letter at breakfast. Suddenly she looked up suspiciously at her husband. "Henry," she said, "I've just received a letter from mother saying she isn't accepting our invitation to come and stay, as we do not appear to want her. What does she mean by that? I told you to write and say that she was to come at her own convenience. You did write, didn't you?" "Er, yes, I did," said the husband. "But I couldn't spell conveeniance, so I made it risk." ______________________________________________________ By the time Ted arrived at the hockey game, the first quarter was almost over. "Why are you so late?" his friend asked. "I had to toss a coin to decide between going to church and coming to the game." "How long could that have taken you?" "Well, I had to toss it 114 times."
