An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Robert Collins, 39, Alliance, Ohio Man Calls 911 To Report Wife Stole His Cocaine March 6 An Ohio man called 911 to report that his wife had stolen his cocaine, according to cops who subsequently arrested him on drug and other charges. Robert Collins, 39, dialed the police emergency line late Wednesday night to report the cocaine theft, according to an Alliance Police Department report that does not detail the wherabouts of Collins’s spouse or the cocaine. When officers arrived at Collins’s residence, he apparently had a change of heart and “refused to tell police why he called 911.” Investigators reported that Collins, who “had a pipe used to smoke marijuana in his possession,” was “arrested and charged with misuse of 911 and drug paraphernalia.” He also had an active arrest warrant in connection with a 2013 criminal case. Collins, pictured above, was booked into the Stark County jail on the misdemeanor counts. He is scheduled for arraignment today in Municipal Court in Alliance, a city about 60 miles from Cleveland. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ann Re: Computer freezing up Webby, Hi Webby: Hope all is going good with you. I have a quick question. My PC keeps freezing up and no matter what browser I use it still freezes. I am currently using the up to date Firefox. I tried everything to fix this, ran malware, anti virus, Mr. Fix it, etc. they can't find a thing wrong. Can you help??? Using Windows 7 Home, PC is 7 years old Ann Dear Ann That sounds like a connection problem. Connection problems are a real nuisance, because you can't really test anything, while the PC is frozen. Sometimes you can hit CTRL SHIFT ESC and start the task manager, and from there end programs, that are not needed at the moment. At the same time, look for programs in there, that are new or unusual. You can sort the programs various different ways. I prefer "Processes", and dump the ones, that hog too many resources. Even though the jam had been caused by connectivity problems, taking a load off the machine usually helps it to recover. To sort out connectivity problems you have to contact your ISP. On a long shot, it could also be possible, that your Adobe Flash Player is out of date and needs to be updated. Have FUN!

I learned this years ago and it makes my life a little easier. Fill a microwave-safe container with water. I add a few lemon slices and a few tablespoons of baking soda to remove any odors. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Let the container stay in the microwave for about 5 minutes. It will create a sauna in there. After 5 minutes, carefully remove the container and wipe down the inside of the microwave. It will come off so easily. By Becky [28] A saucer full of water is plenty, unless you let beans explode and cake to the walls and ceiling of the microwave for years. An easy tip to avoid the mess in the first place is to use a plastic cake cover to cover your food, and once a season toss the cake cover into the dishwater. Disposable "Cake Domes" cost about ten cents. Get one with a handle molded into the top, not the expensive ones with metal handles. Have FUN!
