Grateful to have received a warning instead of a ticket, she gave him a small bag of her grandmother's delicious chocolate-chip cookies and proceeded on her way. A short time later, she was stopped by another trooper. "What have I done?" I asked. "Nothing," the trooper said, smiling. "I heard you were passing out great chocolate- chip cookies." ______________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Darrell Ranel, 56, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Baton Rouge pastor arrested for raping 11-year-old girl A 56-year-old Baton Rouge man was arrested Friday, accused of raping an 11-year-old girl. Darrell Ranel, a resident of the 2100 block of Cunard Avenue in Baton Rouge, was arrested by Baton Rouge police after a girl, now 12, told an employee at a hospital in New Orleans that she had been sexually assaulted, according to an affidavit of probable cause. Ranel had been in a relationship with the girl's mother, and the girl told police that "Mr. Darrell" had raped her twice when she was 11, police said. Ranel is listed as director of The Black Creek African Methodist Episcopal Church of Darlington, which is near the Mississippi border, according to The Advocate.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Olaf Re: 4 TB hard drive for $179 a good idea? Dear Webby Dear Webby Is that price at NewEgg too good to be true? And if it is truye, is that a good deal? Olaf Dear Olaf The price is true indeed. However, it is not a good deal except for back-up purposes for pictures and music. You complained a year ago about the virus scan slowing you down for hours. That was with a 1/2 TB drive. Imagine how long a scan of a 4 TB drive would slow you down! Sure, you can partition the 4 TB drive into 8 virtual drives of 1/2 TB each, but if that 8 TB drive malfunctions, all those partitions are lost. For speed and reliability it would be better to have a few cheap 1/2 TB drives in USB removable drive cases, and just use whichever one you need, and have the other ones turned off and in the safe. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Having lost weight over the past few years, a lady was discarding things from her wardrobe that no longer fit. Her seven-year-old daughter was watching as she held up a huge pair of slacks. "Wow," the lady said, "I must have worn these when I was a hundred and eighty." Her daughter looked puzzled and asked, "How old are you now?" ______________________________________________________ Three weeks after her wedding day, Maureen called her minister. "Reverend," she wailed, "John and I had a DREADFUL fight!" "Calm down, my child," said the minister, "it's not half as bad as you think it is. Every marriage has to have its first fight!" "I know, I know!" said Maureen, "but what am I going to do with the BODY?" _________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Chocolate is Good for You For a long time, I have heard and read that eating a little chocolate every day is good for you. I have chocolate chips left over from Christmas, that were going to waste if not used, so for the past couple of weeks I have been eating some of them daily. So far I have not gained weight. I have actually lost a couple of pounds, which I am trying to do. Chocolate covered nuts are my favorite candy. Chewing up a nut and a few chips at the same time taste just like eating a chocolate covered nut. Benefits of chocolate, in the AOL news today. Immediate mental stimulant. It widens blood vessels and can help reduce blood pressure. It can lower body fat. Healthy bacteria in your stomach thrives on chemical makeup of chocolate, which while breaking down releases compounds that lesson cardiovascular tissue inflammation, reducing the risk of strokes. It can improve your memory. I need all of this so I just may be stocking up on chocolate chips to keep on hand all the time. One tablespoon, a serving size of Nestle Chocolate Chips, contains 70 calories. By Litter Gitter [122] Keep in mind that she talks about REAL chocolate, like Baker's Semi Sweet, not candy bars or "chocolates" in gift packages, that are 90% sugar with a thin coating of fake chocolate. A teaspoon of chips with a yoghurt is apparently quite healthy. Something I should try to do again. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Two guys were doing construction on a house. The guy who was nailing down siding would reach into his nail pouch, pull out a nail, and then either toss it over his shoulder or nail it into the siding. The other guy saw him tossing all the nails over his shoulder and asked, "Why are you throwing those nails away?" The first guy said, "If I pull a nail out of my pouch and it's pointed towards me, I throw it away 'cause it's defective. If it's pointed toward the house, then I nail it into the siding." The second guy was outraged. He yelled, "You idiot! The nails pointed towards you aren't defective! They're for the other side of the house!" _____________________________________________________ Somewhat skeptical of his son's newfound determination to become Charles Atlas, the father nevertheless followed the teenager over to the weight-lifting department, admiring a set of weights. "Please, Dad," pleaded the boy, "I promise I'll use 'em every day." "I don't know, Michael. It's really a commitment on your part," the father pointed out. "Please, Dad?" the boy continued. "They're not cheap either," the father came back. "I'll use 'em Dad, I promise. You'll see." Finally won over, the father paid for the equipment and headed for the door. From the corner of the store he heard his son yelp, "Wait! You mean I have to carry them to the car?" ____________________________________________________
