To warn others, residents would yell out, "Flushing!" each time they flushed the toilets. During one of my daughter's visits home, a friend stopped by to chat for a while. I was explaining how my daughter was acting more distant now that she was in college, and that she didn't tell me all about her life the way she used to. Suddenly we heard my daughter call out from the bathroom, "Flushing!" "Good grief," said my friend, "How much more do you want to know?" ______________________________________________________ A sad-faced Todd walked into a flower shop early one morning. The clerk was ready to take his order for a funeral piece, based on the look on Todd's face, but soon realized his assumption was wrong as Todd asked for a basket of flowers sent to his wife for their anniversary. "And what day will that be?" the clerk asked. Glumly he replied, "Yesterday." ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rachel Salters, 46, Orange City, Florida
Mother Arrested For Potato Sack Attack On Son A mother whacked her 12-year-old son in the head with a sack of potatoes and then pelted the boy with the vegetable as he cowered behind a toilet in the family’s Florida home, police allege. According to investigators, the victim last night asked Rachel Salters, 46, to “make him some dinner,” a request that “started a verbal argument which led to Salters picking up a full bag of potatoes.” As Salters, seen above, allegedly began striking the child in the head with the potatoes, he “fled into the bathroom where he locked the door.” Salters, “in a sense of enragement,” then kicked the door until it broke open, according to a Volusia County Sheriff’s Office report. Once inside the bathroom, Salters, who is nicknamed “Rae Rae,” resumed hitting the child in the head with the sack of potatoes. “When the bag broke open, Salters picked up several potatoes off of the bathroom floor and began pitching them” at the boy, who was in the fetal position between the toilet and the shower. The child was not injured during the confrontation at the Orange City home. When a deputy questioned Salters about the bathroom door’s broken frame, she replied, “I don’t know.” She offered a similar response when asked about a potato that cops found on the bathroom floor. Following her arrest, Salters reportedly shouted, “I didn’t hit him with the potato, I only threw it at him!” After being placed in a patrol car, an “extremely hostile and aggressive” Salters claimed that it was not a crime to hit the boy, and reiterated that she “only threw potatoes at him.” Salters was charged with felony child abuse and tampering with evidence (for removing a potato from the home’s bathroom after being told by cops not to touch anything in the room). She is being held in lieu of $11,500 bond, according to jail records. The victim was temporarily placed in the custody of a state child welfare investigator who planned on releasing the boy to Salters’s husband (who himself was arrested last month for battery).
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Hank Re: Picture from PDF to Facebook Dear Webby Greetings from the lower 48. Thanks for you daily letter. I have a small problem. How do I download a PDF photo to Facebook. It is on Acrobat. I Have Open Office and MS Word. I can download the file to Pictures or Documents but cannot download to Facebook. I get the message " not in JPG or file is too large." There has to be a simple way to do this but I can't get the solution myself. Many thanks for your help, Hank Dear Hank I use Nitro reader instead of Acrobat, so that I can fill out PDF forms. With Nitro, you right-click a picture, select COPY, then ALT TAB to the previously opened graphics program, PSP in my case, but any of them will work, and in there hit CTRL V to paste the picture. Then I can crop and resize the picture, put a caption onto it, increase contrast, change brightness, etc., and then save it as a JPG. Most likely you can do the same with Acrobat. Once you have saved it as JPG or PNG, you can upload it to Facebook. Have FUN!

She told the census taker that her daddy was a doctor and wasn't home because he was performing an appendectomy. "My," said the census taker, "that sure is a big word for such a little girl. Do you know what it means?" "Sure do! Fifteen-hundred bucks, and that doesn't even include the anesthesiologist!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Dye Your Own Hair It takes my breath away thinking about how much money we can spend at beauty salons. I stopped going to get my hair dyed years ago. Now I simply buy my own at my local grocery store. I spend a fraction of the amount I used to. Not only that, I don't have to worry about not being able to get a convenient appointment time. :) Try it, you will not be disappointed. You will also have more money in your piggy bank!

_____________________________________________________ The patient was lying in bed, still groggy from the effects of the recent operation. His doctor came in, looking very glum. "I can't be sure what's wrong with you," the doctor said. "I think it's the drinking." "No problem," the patient said patiently. "I'm sure by tomorrow some doctor will sober up. I'm still a bit tired from that operation anyway." _____________________________________________________ Here is a real classic: A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a large empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, rocks about 2" in diameter. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. The students laughed. The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. "Now," said the professor, "I want you to recognize that this is your life. The rocks are the important things - your family, your helpmate, your health, and your children - things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car. The sand is everything else. The small Stuff." "If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your helpmate out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal." "Take care of the rocks first - the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand." But then... A student then took the jar, which the other students and the professor agreed was full, and proceeded to slowly pour in a glass of beer. Of course the beer soaked into the sand and the remaining air spaces, within the jar making the jar truly full. The moral of the Story: No matter how full your life is, no matter how important you think you or your job are or how much little crap you have to do, there is always room for a BEER. ____________________________________________________
