"There will be 3 to 5 inches of snow today, and a snow emergency has been declared," the weather report said. "To allow snow clearing you must park your cars on the odd numbered side of the streets." Ole said, "Oh, okay," and got up from his coffee. The next day they were sitting down with their morning cups of coffee. The weather forecast was, "There will be 2 to 4 inches of snow today, and a snow emergency has been declared. To allow snow clearing you must park your cars on the even numbered side of the streets." Again Ole replied, "Oh, okay," and got up from his coffee. Two days later, again they're sitting down with their cups of coffee and the weather forecast said, "There will be 6 to 8 inches of snow today, and a snow emergency has been declared. To allow snow clearing you must park your cars on the..." and the power went out. Ole didn't get the rest of the instructions. He turned to Lena, "Gee, what am I going to do now, Lena?" Lena replied, "Aw, Ole, just leave the car in the darned garage today." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roy for this picture: Click through for the big picture Manarola, Italy

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Phuc Nguyen 39, Gilroy, California Californian arrested for using 'fake' furniture store to grow marijuana A scheme to grow marijuana in the back of a phony furniture store went up in smoke after authorities got wind of what was really going on at the premises. Police in Gilroy, California, arrested Phuc Nguyen, 39, on January 22 at Gilroy Furniture & More, which authorities said was never open for business and never sold a single couch, chair or armoire. Instead, the "fake" furniture store was a front for a huge marijuana grow operation, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department. Detectives found more than 1,000 pot plants in the rear of the store and more than 50 pounds of processed marijuana, the sheriff's office said in a statement. The estimated value of the marijuana was more than $2 million. Detectives said Nguyen allegedly stole around $80,000 from a power company by bypassing the electrical meter. The alleged electricity theft was a serious fire hazard because none of the wiring was done to electrical code requirements, according to the release. Nguyen was arrested on charges of theft of utilities and illegal cultivation of marijuana for sale. He remains in the Santa Clara County jail on $200,000 bail, according to There was a related arrest earlier this month when a man named Tuan Dan Nguyen, 50, was allegedly caught with 320 pounds of marijuana plants valued at $700,000 in a warehouse on the same street, NBC Bay Area reports. The sheriff's office says the two Nguyens are not related, but are "business associates." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Joe Re: Critical Error 41 Dear Webby, how do I resolve this error on my laptop, I've contacted windows to no avail. This error blocks my diagnostics tools & I receive hundreds of spam in my Yahoo mailbox everyday. Love your newsletter. TYVM, Joe F. Dear Joe Critical Error 41 is normally because of a messy reboot or a reboot while going to sleep / hibernation. That can be caused by bad or overloaded power supply or too much stuff plugged into USB ports or a virus or a registry conflict or an overload caused by scanning with certain anti-virus programs or conflicting audio drivers. Error 41 is a secondary symptom, and does not indicate what caused a messy reboot attempt. The spam is due to being handicapped by Yahoo, and probably a virus infection. Quite likely your address was sold the last time Yahoo got hacked. Mailwasher should take care of that spam. Go to and get a free trial. Have FUN!

A doctor thought he recognized a man who was ahead of him in the line at the bank as a patient whom he had not seen for twenty or more years. So he asked him how he was doing. "Just great! As healthy as anybody can be!" "Sounds like you must have followed the instructions on the medicine I gave you." the Doctor said. "I sure did. The bottle said 'Keep tightly closed'. Never even broke the seal on it." _____________________________________________________ Two rich men were talking over coffee and croissants at their country club one day and one of them said to the other one, "Hey, I tell you my driver is really stupid... you don't think so? Let me show you." And he called his driver Tammy over and said, "Tammy, here is a 10 dollar bill, go to the car showroom a nd buy me a Mercedes." To which Tammy replied, "Yes Sir! Right away!" and rushed outside. The rich man turned to his friend and said, "See, I told you she was stupid." The other rich man said, "That's nothing, you want to see stupid, I will show you stupid." And he called his driver, Terri: "Terri, go home now and check to see if I'm at home." Terri said, "Yes Sir!! Right away, Sir" and ran outside. "See what I told you? She doesn't even have enough brains to know that I cannot be at home if I am here." 5 minutes later the two drivers met at the donut shop. Tammy said to Terri, "Eh, you know my boss is sooo stupid. He gave me 10 dollars and asked me to go to the car showroom and buy him a Mercedes.....Doesn't he know that today is Sunday?? The showroom is closed!" Terri replied, "You think he is stupid, huh? My boss is sooo much worse, he asked me to go home to check if he is at home....I got a cellphone, right, why should I drive all the way across town if I can call home to check, after I have a few donuts !!!!"
