An economist is a man who states the obvious in terms of the incomprehensible. --- Alfred A. Knopf ______________________________________________________ 3 year-old Kelli went with her neighbor girl to church for First Communion practice. The pastor has the children cup their hands, and when he gives them the Host, -in this practise case, a piece of bread- he says: "God be with you." Apparently this made quite an impression on Kelli. She came home and told her mother to cup her hands and bend down. Kelli took a piece of bread from her sandwich, placed it in her mother's hands, and whispered, in her most angelic voice: "God will get you." ______________________________________________________ Two writers of modern poetry who had been bitter rivals for years met on a busy street corner.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Robert Phillip Rivas, 26, Pleasant Grove, Utah
Utah Man robbed credit union for girlfriend’s bail money Bailing a girlfriend out of jail motivated a man to rob a credit union, police said. Robert Phillip Rivas, 26, and Armando Jesse Ambriz, 28, robbed the Utah Community Credit Union at 105 E. State on May 4, according to the Pleasant Grove Police Department. “We later received information from one of Robert Rivas’ family members indicating that they were aware of a plot he had to rob a bank to obtain money to bail his girlfriend out of jail,” said Lt. Britt Smith. “ (With) search warrants we were able to find some receipts for bail bondsmen that indicated he had in fact bailed his girlfriend out of jail hours after the robbery here in Pleasant Grove.” The case was also unusual because police were able to arrest Ambriz before they even received a physical description of the robbers, according to Smith. “The bank they robbed was just a couple of blocks away from the police department and he was walking toward the police department wearing an obvious disguise, so officers responding from the police department to the bank passed by him first,” he said. “Obviously he stood out like a sore thumb wearing a wig, fake beard and fake eyebrows.” Both Ambriz and Rivas were booked into the Utah County Jail on suspicion of felony robbery and obstruction of justice. Rivas' girlfriend was released on bail, according to Smith. “I don’t know what her plans are now that (Rivas) is looking at some prison time,” Smith said.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Mary Re: Pictures are too big for email Dear Webby, The pictures from my new camera are way too big for email. I had the camera set to record pictures at 480 by something, but everybody was screaming at me about too small and fuzzy pictures. Now I got them large and fine, and they say they can't receive them! What do I do now? Mary Dear Mary Continue taking pictures in large and fine format. That allows you to crop them, cut them down to just the important parts. It also allows you to reduce them in size to what the recipients can handle. Just about everybody can handle 800 x 600, and still enjoy a sharp, fine-grained picture. To crop a picture or to reduce it in size you need some sort of graphcs program. Don't worry, you don't have to shell out big bucks for Photoship or spend a month learning GIMP. There are lots of free graphics programs available. Try a few of them until you come across one, that suits your style. For the pictures in the humor Letter I use about 600 wide for the "Thumbnail", and 1024 for the large picture. If a picture is tall and narro, then of course I have to change that and just make them 1100 tall. That seems to suit the majority. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Wife: "I'm happy to see that the neighbors finally returned our lawn mower before they moved. They certainly had it long enough." Husband: "*Our* lawn mower? I just bought it at the garage sale they're having." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from All Natural Non-Stick Cooking Spray I'm trying to eliminate unwanted chemicals from our diet. I don't like the things in the non-stick aerosol can that I usually use. It struck me the other day; make your own! I had a tiny spray bottle I bought at Walmart for less than a dollar, I added my ingredients, very simple, and it worked great! One more healthy change and very little effort involved. It's even less expensive than the old kind. Approximate Time: 10 minutes? Yield: 2 ounces Ingredients: small fingertip spray bottle 1 ounce water 1 ounce grapeseed oil measuring cup funnel Supplies for Decorating the Spray Bottle old magazine scissors tape cookie cutter or stencil paper bag pen twine supplies Steps: Pour 1 ounce of water into your bottle with a funnel. All Natural Non-Stick Cooking Spray Pour 1 ounce of grapeseed, extra virgin olive oil, or any all natural healthy oil. Non-hydrogenated is very important. Shake well. All Natural Non-Stick Cooking Spray Cut a label from an old magazine and tape onto the front of your bottle. All Natural Non-Stick Cooking Spray Cut a label with a cookie cutter or stencil from a grocery bag for your label. All Natural Non-Stick Cooking Spray Label it and tape on. All Natural Non-Stick Cooking Spray Tie with some twine and you're good to go. All Natural Non-Stick Cooking Spray You don't have to do this, but I find cooking more enjoyable when the items I use are dressed up a bit.:) By melissa [122] I have used an Amway pistol grip sprayer originally intended for their LOC cleaner since the mid 80's for that. I just fill it with olive oil, and when needed, I lightly mist a pan or pot or baking sheet with it. Works fine, and the olive oil lubricates it nicely. It still works as well as on day one. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________
