Florida Teacher Busted Selling Acid, Pills To Undercover Cops A third grade teacher in Florida was arrested on Wednesday after she allegedly sold Xanax and acid to an undercover police officer. Cheryl Heineman, 45, is charged with multiple counts of sale and delivery of Schedule IV narcotics, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Her alleged partner, 20-year-old Jack Lindsey, was also arrested in the case. Police say they tracked the Central Avenue Elementary School teacher as part of a lengthy narcotics investigation, buying drugs from her on at least three earlier occasions before the arrest this week in Kissimmee. Police recorded each of the drug deals, which typically took place in the parking lot of a shopping center, WKMG reports. School officials said that Heineman, who has worked in the school district for 25 years, has been re-assigned to responsibilities without student contact, pending the investigation, according to WFTV.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: MKR Re: Google Converter Dear Webby, When at my computer or smart phone, I use Google for unit conversion. For example, enter: 100 miles in km at or in the URL in Firefox or Chrome (assuming Google is your default search provider). Google will reply: 100 Mile = 160.934 Kilometer in a nice form, with several drop-down choices for the “from” and “to” units, as well as for the category of conversion. It’s amazing how many different units they offer, and how many different categories. Aloha, -mkr Dear Michael Wow! I didn't know that. It even works from the address bar! And it even does the smart-ass question typical in the days of DOS, when every hobby programmer wrote a converter: "Does yours do pi lightyears into furlongs?" It does. Even furlongs to beard-seconds works! Thanks! DearWebby Beard Second is the distance a Juvenile's beard grows in one second: 5 nano-meters. It used to be 10nm, but Google halved that to 5 nm. Beard-second is used in the design of chips. _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ The drill sergeant making his morning announcements to a group of newcomers in a training camp, stated: "Today, gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news. First, the good. Private Peters will be setting the pace on our morning run." With this the platoon was overjoyed and cheered loudly, as Private Peters was overweight and terribly slow. But then the drill sergeant finished his statement: "Now for the bad news. Private Peters will be the driver for my jeep." ______________________________________________________ A man and his wife are walking down the street when he suddenly said, "That lovely girl just looked at me and smiled."

I don't do the half measure and I don't add water. If a recipe calls for butter I use it because it is dairy. Who knows what is really in margerine. I remember during WWII when butter was not available and we had to use margarine. Even as a little kid I hated it. I have lived for a long time on butter, in my mashed potatoes and in my pastas while they are cooking. At my house if the instructions say butter I use butter. We scramble our eggs with it. And DH and I are healthy as a pair of horses. By Marty Dick [154] Amen! I use butter even if the recipe calls for some wimpy substitute. And I eat real meat and not some GM weed derived tofu. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A couple lived near the ocean and used to walk the beach a lot. One summer they noticed a girl who was at the beach pretty much every day. She wasn't unusual, nor was the travel bag she carried, except for one thing; she would approach people who were sitting on the beach, glance around furtively, then speak to them. Generally the people would respond negatively and she would wander off, but occasionally someone would nod and there would be a quick exchange of money for something she carried in her bag. The couple assumed she was selling drugs and debated calling the cops, but since they didn't know for sure they just continued to watch her. After a couple of weeks the wife said, "Honey, have you ever noticed that she only goes up to people with boom boxes and other electronic stuff?" He hadn't and said so. Then she said "Tomorrow I want you to get a towel and our big radio and go lie out on the beach. Then we can find out what she's really doing." Well, the plan went off without a hitch and the wife was almost hopping up and down with anticipation when she saw the girl talk to her husband and then leave. The man walked up the beach and met his wife at the road. "Well,? Is she selling drugs?" she asked, excitement pouring out with her voice. "No, she's not." he said, enjoying this probably more than he should have. "Well,? What is it, then? What does she do?" his wife fairly shrieked. The man grinned and said, "She's a battery salesman." "A battery salesman?" cried the wife. "Yes," he replied, "She sells 'C' cells by the sea shore!" _____________________________________________________ An 18th century vagabond in England, exhausted and famished, comes on a roadside inn emblazoned with a sign carrying the name "St. George and the Dragon." He knocks on the door, and the innkeeper's wife sticks her head out of a window above the sign. "Could ye spare some victuals?" the man asks. The woman glances at his shabby, dirty clothes. "No," she shouts. "Could I have a pint of ale then?" he asks. "No, I said." "Could I at least use your privy?" "No," she shouts again. "Well, might I please....?" "What now?" the woman screeches, not allowing him to finish. "D'ye suppose that I might have a word with George?" ____________________________________________________
