After she cut off the end of the ham, she placed it in a pan for baking. Her friend asked her,"Why did you cut off the end of the ham"? And she replied ,"I really don't know but my mother always did, so I thought you were supposed to." Later when talking to her mother she asked her why she cut off the end of the ham before baking it, and her mother replied,"I really don't know, but that's the way my mom always did it." A few weeks later while visiting her grandmother, the young woman asked, "Grandma, why is it that you cut off the end of a ham before you bake it?" Her grandmother replied ,"Well dear, otherwise it would never fit into my baking pan." ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Elizabeth Hogrefe, 45, Lincoln, Nebraska
Neb. woman attacked snoring boyfriend with crowbar A man in Lincoln, Nebraska, woke up to a real life nightmare Monday morning: His girlfriend was hitting him in the back with a crowbar. Elizabeth Hogrefe, 45, allegedly attacked her 58-year-old boyfriend because she couldn't take his snoring, police said, according to the Lincoln Journal-Star. The victim managed to get out of the motel room where he had been staying with Hogrefe and get to a nearby convenience store, where he reported his injuries to officers who were also there, reports. The officers said the man's injuries were "consistent with being hit with a pry bar," the Associated Press reports. When officers showed up at their motel room, she allegedly screamed and yelled at them before slamming the door on them. Officers took her into custody. On the way to the Lancaster County Jail, she allegedly screamed that somebody should kill her boyfriend because he is "always getting under people's skin," reports. Hogrefe was charged with second-degree domestic assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony, according to
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Diane Re: How to get rid of Binkiland? Dear Webby, I downloaded Malwarebytes a couple of months ago because I got something in my computer and could not get out of it.¬ Malware took it out immediately and keeps catching it.¬ These bugs are persistent little devils. I remember you telling another subscriber to let you know what Malware is catching. This is the bug I got and they still try to get in. ¬ PUP.Opitional.Binkiland.A It may not be a virus but it is disruptive. Thanks for all your advise, Diane Dear Diane Binkiland is a browser hijacker and data miner. When you downloaded some nefarious program and clicked on the AGREE button below the small print, you agreed to let the NSA and others use Binkiland to collect your data and report it to them. Because you AGREED, the NSA and others think they have a right to mine your data and mess with your browser. Theoretically they could even sue you if you remove their crap. Malwarebytes does remove it OK. They are not worried about lawsuits, because they can make one hell of a stink in that case. You have to also go after the extensions and add-ons in EVERY browser you got. Even the ones you just tried once and never since. If you aren't using Safari or Opera anymore, uninstall them. Go through their options and get rid of anything and everything, that you are not actively using, and look for anything that has binki or WSE in it. After that, run Malwarebytes again. That should get rid of the pest permanently, unless you have some other garbage, that keeps calling it in again every time you use that. Pay attention to when Binki reappears. Which program or game did you use just prior to that. You'll have to get rid of that. Possibly you can get it again from a cleaner source, and really pay attention to what you agree to when you get it. You could also use and let it scour your computer for any and all wacky programs. Especially if you kept transferring everything from one computer to the next whenever you updated the machine, you will have all kinds of stuff on it, that you don't even remember. Shouldiremoveit will list every program, and sort them according to their danger or nuisance rating. You can click on the names and it will tell you what that program does. Then you can choose to keep it or uninstall it. You will be surprised about all the stuff it finds, some of which you have long forgotten. Naturally, weeding out unused stuff will give you more room and speed. That will help keeping Binki from coming back. Have FUN!

His mother said to him, "Now, Johnny, I know you love Wilbur, but you're loving him too much. How would you feel if someone huge picked you up and squeezed you so hard you couldn't breathe?"

I read some of the ingredients in the cough drops I usually buy and was not too happy. I usually go through quite a bit of these, especially during allergy season to sooth my irritated throat. Well these work great, taste wonderful, and are completely natural, even good for you! One of the ingredients is coconut oil, which improves immunity by fighting viruses. Bonus! Try these, I think you will be pleasantly surprised. They taste so good I even use them as a quick treat sometimes. Nice little pick me up. :) Approximate Time: About 1 hour Yield: Around 40 Ingredients: 1 cup of honey, organic would be ideal 2 Tbsp coconut oil, this must be organic in order to retain it's health benefits. small pot candy thermometer whisk parchment paper empty jar, mayo jar works great. Bring your honey and coconut oil to a boil in your pot. Homemade Cough Drops Reduce to a simmer and cook until your thermometer reads *300 F. This will take around 15 minutes or more. Be sure to whisk the entire time. Remember when you clip your thermometer to your pot that if your end is on the bottom of the pot, it will give you a false reading. Y ou want the end in the mixture, but not touching the bottom. Pour your mixture on a greased cookie sheet. Homemade Cough Drops You will of course want to let it cool for a few minutes so you can handle it. Stirring it around with a spatula will speed the cooling time up. Important to remember, you only have a few minutes before this mixture sets up. It is important to work fast! Tearing off small pieces of the mixture, shape it into the desired size. A little football maybe? Or press it a little flat in the center? The key is to let them rest on parchment paper when cooling. I tried greased wax paper, everything! The "only" thing these will not adhere to like cement is parchment paper. It is available at your grocery store. When cool, wrap them like candy in a small square of this paper to store them in your air-tight jar. This part was actually really fun, they look so cute and old-fashioned wrapped up.:) Source: Pinterest By melissa [127] I usually squeeze a lemon into the mixture, partly because it cuts the sweetness, and partly because you need extra Vitamin C when you have a cough. Sometimes I add cinnamon. If you have made any thick fruit or berry syrup, you can add a bit of that. A TBSP of thick raspberry syrup is enough to give the cough drops a very nice raspberry flavor. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________
