Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, January 8

Ezinefinder still has not been switched to 2015. 
It is still stuck in 2014
The Humor Letter got 15840 votes in 2014,
and my friend Ophelia got 4214 in 2014.

I am continuously amazed that Ophelia can't seem to
increase her subscriber numbers. Sure, she is a bit 
raunchy, but so are Playboy or Playgirl. It's a mystery.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Corey Mathews, 22 607 7th Street North St. Petersburg Florida Florida Man, Accused Of Toting Baby To Home Burglary TAMPA, Fla. (Reuters) - A Florida man is accused of bringing his 5-month-old son to a home burglary attempt, during which he set the baby down so that he could pull a knife on the homeowner, police said on Tuesday. Corey Mathews, 22, was arrested on charges including aggregated assault and child neglect for his role in the attempted burglary on Monday evening, according to the St. Petersburg Police Department. Police said Mathews held his baby in a carseat as he acted as the lookout for another man trying to break into a home. Mathews yelled upon seeing the homeowner, and the other suspect fled. The homeowner followed Mathews down an alley, where he put the baby on the ground and threatened the owner with a knife, police said in a statement. Mathews was still carrying the infant when police later apprehended him, the statement said. Police say they found the knife he threatened the homeowner with on his person. Corey Mathews is now charged with residential burglary, aggravated assault, child neglect and violation of probation. The child is now in the custody of Mathew's mother, police said. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Hank Re: Registry problem alerts Dear Webby Thanks for all your help in the past and your Daily Humor Letter. I have "Smart PC Fixer" for my registry problems. I will run the Fixer, which states that my PC is at 100. Then some other "warning" will appear than my PC has a sever registry problem. I let them scan my PC and they give the results that I have problems. Is this just a scan or a scam? Thanks. hank Dear Hank That seems to be a scam. Try to find out which program is generating the fake alerts. Quite possibly your machine is infected with a hijacker. You might need Malwarebytes to get rid of that. Avast doesn't protect you against stuff like that. Have FUN!
