The tour guide led the students to a glass- enclosed room. They could see several people in white lab coats. With her back to the glass, the guide announced: "In this room researchers are actively searching for a cure for cancer." She stopped short as the group broke out laughing. Puzzled, the guide turned to look. Through the glass she saw three scientists in animated debate, flipping through the pages of a Boston Pizza menu. ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture

Florida Parents Gave Kids Pot, Cocaine As 'Bargaining Tool' to get them to go to school A couple gave their teenage daughters cocaine and marijuana if they went to school and did household chores, authorities said. Chad and Joey Mudd, of Largo, a suburb in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area, gave their daughters, ages 13 and 14, drugs as a "bargaining tool" for school attendance and doing chores, Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives said. They were arrested Monday. According to an affidavit, the mother said she smoked pot with her daughters five times and the father snorted cocaine with the teens and one of his daughter's boyfriends in his truck. Chad Mudd, the 36-year-old father who works at an area beach bar, was charged with six counts of child abuse and one count of possession of cocaine. Joey Mudd, the girls' 34-year-old mom, was charged with two counts of child abuse. Arrest records say she works at a pediatrician's office. Joey Mudd was released Wednesday on bail and Chad Mudd was released Thursday on bail. Calls to telephone numbers belonging to the Mudds weren't answered because they were at work. It's unclear if they've retained an attorney. It's not clear who has taken custody of the children.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Elton Re: Problem with Excel 2013 Dear Webby, At my new job they use Office 2013, and as usual with Microsoft, it is not compatible with other Microsoft programs. Even trying to open a spreadsheet written with Excel 2007, it crashes. How am I supposed to work when the stupid thing keeps crashing? What is the solution? Time to upgrade to Open Office? Elton Dear Elton That is a known bug in 2013. Apparently you would have to butcher Excel and cut out EMET (Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit) Excel and WORD work fine without that thilly nuissance. The only other method woul be to open the file with Open Office, and save it as an Excel 2013 type file. Don't ask me why! I haven't smoked that stuff sine 1972. If you call Microsoft, then apparently they blame you for a flakey installation, and that you should upgrade to Windows 8.1, which incidentally does not fix the problem. By that point most people slam the phone. Have FUN!

They fit. "Yeah!" And #2. The styles are all back in. I never thought I would imagine people wearing flared bottom jeans, we called them "Bell-bottoms" Ha, ha, ha. After losing some weight to an unfortunate health problem, all these jeans fit great. I am looking like the most styling grandmother of 11 grandchildren. They think I am the coolest. It takes their minds off the fact that I am sick, which is working well for all of us. I was ironing my jeans. Back in my day, we always had a crease in our jeans. After starting the crease, I sprayed lightly with a pump bottle of hairspray. It gave the jeans a really sharp crease and a softer touch. And those jeans never lost their look. At least I will be going out in style. :) There are many uses for hairspray! Be creative! Hairspray for Creased Jeans By Jackie H. [67] ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A preacher was really hitting his stride one Sunday, delivering a sermon on sin. "Is there anyone here who is without SIN?" he shouted, glowering at the congregation. Embarrassed parishioners stirred nervously in their seats, but no one stood. Feeling he really had them this time, the preacher roared, "Is there anyone here who thinks he or she is PERFECT?" One small man, seated next to a rather imposing woman, rose nervously to his feet. "So, Brother Jones, you think YOU are PERFECT?" Quietly the man replied, "No, Reverend, I'm just standing for my wife's first husband." _____________________________________________________ An American journalist was stopped at a Russian Checkpoint in Chechnya. The Russian soldier said, "Get out of the car and open the trunk!" The American replied, "I'm sorry, but the handbrake on the rental car is broken. I can't take my foot off the brake or it'll roll back down the hill." So the Russian says, "Do you take me for a FOOL?!" as he slides into the passenger seat, and stamps his big boot onto the brake pedal. "Now, go and open the trunk!" So the journalist reluctantly complies with the soldiers request and goes and opens the trunk of the car. "Now", shouts the Russian from inside the car, "Is there any contraband in there?" ____________________________________________________
