Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying. --- Fran Lebowitz (1950 - ) ______________________________________________________ A man who smelled like a bar at closing time, flopped on a subway seat next to a priest. The man's tie was stained and his collar showed some liptsick smears. He opened his newspaper and began reading. After a few minutes the disheveled guy turned to the priest and asked, "Say,Father, what causes arthritis?" "It's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol and a contempt for your fellow man!" "Well, I'll be damned," the drunk muttered, returning to his paper. The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologized. "I'm very sorry, I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?" "I don't have it, Father, I was just reading here that the Pope does." ______________________________________________________ "I would like some vitamins for my daughter Latreesha," the mother said as she walked into the pharmacy.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tyrone C. Bell, Jr. 26, Cleveland, Ohio
Cleveland man arrested after high-speed car chase in Wickliffe WICKLIFFE, Ohio -- A 26-year-old Cleveland man is in custody after high-speed police pursuit down Euclid Avenue in Wickliffe. Tyrone C. Bell, Jr. was also found with various drugs and a handgun reported missing after a home burglary, police said. He is being held at the Lake County Sheriff's Office on a $20,000 bond. An officer started following Bell just before midnight Monday because he was driving 26 mph over the speed limit, according to a report. The officer tried to stop him near Euclid Avenue and East 200th Street. Bell fled police at speeds of up to 100 mph, reports show. The car chase ended in the parking lot of a Euclid Avenue bowling alley. Bell abandoned the car and ran, but was caught shortly after, police said. Detectives who searched the car found an open container of alcohol, marijuana, crack cocaine and a handgun that was stolen from a Madison Township home in 2013, police said. A 22-year-old East Cleveland man and 17-year-old Concord Township boy were also in the car. Police questioned the 22-year-old man, but later released him. The 17-year-old boy will face various drug and weapons charges in juvenile court. Bell faces numerous charges, including failing to comply with a police order, carrying a concealed weapon, receiving stolen property, possession of crack cocaine, obstructing official business and having a weapon as a felon. Bell was sentenced to five years in prison in 2009 for an aggravated robbery, court records show. He also has a prior conviction for carrying a concealed weapon. He is scheduled to appear in Willoughby Municipal Court at 1 p.m. May 28.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Wren Re: Improve grainy and fuzzy pictures Dear Webby, I inherited all of my mother's pictures. Unfortunately, in the early days of digital cameras her pictures were quite small, and horror of horrors, in GIF format. They are irreplaceable family pictures of reunions and similar events including people, who have long passed away. Is there any way to salvage those pictures? How? Wren Dear Wren First open them and save them as PNG, PSP or PSD. Then change their size to 1200 x 900. Yes, I know, that makes them look like cheap newsprint. Now soften them and soften them some more, until the pixels and jaggies have melted. It's OK if they look fuzzy. Next sharpen them, and sharpen them some more. Keep a close eye on contrast and brightness. You may have to adjust those between sharpenings. After that you can reduce the size to 800 x 600 or 600 x 480 for printing or adding to a page. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Morris and Abe have been at odds all through the school year, however, they decide to forgive each other for any unkind actions and thoughts before the summer holidays. "And," says Morris, "I wish you, what you would wish for me." Abe yelled, "Are you ALREADY starting getting hostile again?"

Dandelions have anti-inflammatory properties that have been proven to relieve pain associated with arthritis, gout, sore muscles, and joint pain. This dandelion infused oil can effectively relieve discomfort when massaged into skin. This is easy to make and half the ingredients are free!:) Approximate Time: 45 minutes to an hour Yield: 1 jar Supplies: clean glass jar dandelion blossoms to fill your jar extra virgin olive oil fabric rubberband Steps: Go out into your yard and pick enough dandelions to fill your chosen jar. To prepare them, blow on them and agitate the flower with your finger to remove any debris. If you try to rinse them in water, they close up, sealing any dirt or bugs inside. You will want to snip them with scissors just below the petals. A bit of the green part is completely fine, every part of this amazing plant is edible. Fill your chosen jar with cleaned blossoms. Pour in extra virgin olive oil just shy of the top. Cut a small piece of fabric and secure this with a rubber band to the top. Set in a sunny windowsill for 2 weeks to infuse thoroughly. Now you will want to strain your flowers out of your oil. Please don't throw them away, they are still very nutritious! I will be putting mine in pasta, with fish, and even scrambled eggs. As for your oil, pour it back into your jar and use a lid this time.:) Store in a cool, dry place. Or, you may store it in the fridge indefinitely. Enjoy!
