The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane. --- Nikola Tesla (1857 - 1943) "Did you ever see the customers in health- food stores? They are pale skinny people who look half-dead. In a steak house you see robust, ruddy people. They're dying, of course, but they look terrific." --- Bill Cosby Never explain--your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway. --- Elbert Hubbard ______________________________________________________ The census taker rang the doorbell and was quite surprised when the door was opened by a nude woman. "Don't be alarmed," she said, "I'm a nudist." Although somewhat embarrassed, the man proceeded to ask the routine questions. "How many children do you have?" he asked. "Eighteen." The lady replied. "Lady," he gasped, "you're not a nudist--you just don't have time to get dressed!" ______________________________________________________ The minister had just finished an excellent chicken dinner at the home of a member of his congregation when he saw a rooster come strutting through the yard. "That's certainly a proud-looking rooster you have there," the minister commented. "Yes, sir," replied the farmer. "He has reason to be proud -- one of his daughters has just entered the ministry!" ______________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Haley Fox, 24, Turner, Oregon
Oregon woman who bashes her online lover's head with a metal bat on their first meeting. An Alabama man who'd been dating an Oregon woman online for two years was left with a fractured skull after she beat him with a metal baseball bat in their first face-to-face meet, police said. Samuel Campbell, 26, traveled across the country to live with who he thought was the love-of-his-life Haley Fox at her Turner home on Wednesday, April 8, reports The Oregonian. But when he arrived, she allegedly led him to an outside table and told him to close his eyes. The 24-year-old then brutally smashed him over the head with the bat, it's alleged. Campbell, of Adger, Alabama, was rushed to Salem Hospital. Doctors discovered that his skull had been fractured and that several of his cuts required staples. Fox was arrested and charged with first-degree assault, reports During questioning, she reportedly told detectives that she carried out the vicious attack because she didn't want to be Campbell's girlfriend. She posted bail and was released on condition that she did not contact Campbell, and is scheduled to be arraigned next week, reports the Sun-Herald. Campbell was treated and released from hospital. He is expected to make a full recovery.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Amy Re: Get Windows 10 icon on taskbar Dear Webby This is *not* a virus. It is a marketing ploy by Microsoft to get Windows 7 and 8 users to upgrade for free to Windows 10. If you want to ignore the stupid icon for now, just click on the little arrow at the left end of the taskbar. In the list that pops up, click on "hide icons and notifications." You can do this for any taskbar item you want to disappear. Amy Dear Amy You are right! It's an edict from the throne. Your owner has decided to put an ad, the "Get Windows 10" icon, onto your taskbar, to remind you about who owns your soul, or your windows anyway. So far that owner's icon has not appeared on my machine, and I don't have that arrow, that you mentioned, but I know how to get into taskbar management. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ A college senior takes his his new girlfriend to a football game. The young couple found seats in the crowded stadium and were watching the action. A substitute was put into the game, and as he was running onto the field to take his position, the boy said to his girfriend, "Take a good look at that fellow. I expect him to be our best man next year." His girfriend snuggled closer and said to the surprised young man, "That's the strangest way I ever heard of for a fellow to propose to a girl. But regardless of how you said it, I accept!" ______________________________________________________ The aged patient doddered into the doctor's office with a serious complaint. "Doc, you've got to do something to lower my sex drive." "Come on now SquirrelBait," the doctor said, "your sex drives all in your head." "That's what I mean, you've got to lower it a little." _____________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Homemade Table Risers My roommate is in a battery powered scooter. While she tries to keep active, often her scooter has a mind of it's own. During a recent "Turkey and all the Fixins' Dinner", her power hand lever got caught under the lip of her work table. The scooter nearly dragged and spun the table and food to ruin. It took two of us lifting the table and turning off her chair to stop a disaster. So, I came up with this idea. I put a smaller can of mushrooms inside a can of veggies. You just have to have the correct sizes to fit inside, raising the table so she can still work on it and still clear whatever the obstacle is. I used veggie cans and little mushroom cans, but you can use vegetable juice cans and large fruit cans upside down inside for utility tables. Each are temporary or permanent, depending on your needs. The "temp" ones are great for picnics or food processing outside. Now, she can pull in without worrying about spilling a pan of hot food or a big salad on her. Win! Win! Source: Nope. Just mommy and the invention! Best are the round bottom veggie cans, that don't have a lip for the can opener. Glue a felt disk or piece from an old t-shirt onto the bottom for smooth sliding. When done, and the legs nicely centered in the cans, pour some plaster of Paris into the cans to fill them. That prevents anything fom falling or crawling into them, and you will never have to clean them out. It also stops them from clattering when you are moving the table. Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ A redneck family from the hills was visiting the city and they were in a mall for the first time in their life. The father and son strolled around while the wife shopped. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but absolutely mezmerised by the two shiney, silver walls that moved apart, then slide back together again. The boy asked,"Pa, what's 'at?" The father, also never having seen an elevator responded,"Son, I dunno. I ain't never seen anything like that in all my life. I just ain't got no idea what it could be." While the boy and his father watched in amazement, an older fat lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pushed a button. The walls opened up, and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed, and the boy and his father watched the small circular numbers light up sequentially. They watched until it reached the last number, and a few seconds later the numbers lit up one by one in reverse sequence until the number 1 lit up, the walls opened up again, and this voluptuous 24 year old blonde stepped out and strolled away. The father, not being able to take his eyes of the woman leaned over and quietly said to his son,"Boy, go get your Momma!!!!!! _____________________________________________________ >From Donna The trouble with hitting the jackpot on a slot machine is that it takes so long to put the money back into the slot. ____________________________________________________
