"Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams. "We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the old man says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her," and he hangs up. Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "They're not getting divorced if I have anything to do about it," she shouts, "I'll take care of this." She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at the old man, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up. The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "They're coming for our anniversary and even paying their own fares...Now what do we tell them for Thanksgiving ?" ______________________________________________________ The reception had ended and the newlyweds had just snuck off to the honeymoon resort. After supper and champagne, the groom retired to the bedroom. But Ashley pulled a chair up to the balcony doors and sat there, gazing at the stars. "Dear," asked the somewhat impatient husband. "Aren't you coming to bed?" "No," Ashley announced. "My mother told me this was going to be the most beautiful night of my life, and I don't want to miss a single minute of it." ______________________________________________________ Click through to the big picture Calbucco time lapse movie of the volcano ______________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tyler Butler, 21, Loxahatchee, Floriduh
Guy Tried to Burn House With Bowling Ball Bomb As the Sun-Sentinel puts it, "it's hard to stand out when it comes to crime in South Florida," but that's exactly what one 21-year-old Loxahatchee resident has allegedly done. Per the AP, Tyler Butler was arrested on charges of arson and using an explosive device after cops say he tried to prevent the bank from selling his foreclosed home in a way that suggests he's watched too many Looney Tunes cartoons: blowing up the place with a bowling ball bomb, complete with what Butler told deputies was a gunpowder-filled center and a rope for a fuse, the Sun-Sentinel reports. People in Butler's neighborhood called 911 to report a house fire around 10pm Sunday, and someone told police on the scene that Butler was still inside. Deputies detained the man as he left the burning building, and as firefighters put out the blaze, they noticed a bowling ball with what looked like a wick sticking out. Witnesses said Butler had mentioned before the fire that "he wasn't gonna leave the house he [used] to live in, that he would burn it down," per a Palm Beach County sheriff's arrest report.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Patricia Re: HTML for Mac Hi DearWebby, Is the free HTML course you have advertised on your website ok to use if you have a Mac? I have a Maverick OSX. Iíve belonged to Dear Webby since 1994Ö.canít believe thatís 21 years ago now! (My subscription still comes through an old yahoo URL I keep). Thanks for your web page, itís great! Sincerely, Patricia Dear Patricia Yes, sure! HTML was developed in the 80s to work the same for everybody, UNIX, Linux, PC and Mac. It is the language used on the Internet, regardless of computer type or spoken language. Even though that site is unchanged except for ads added, every word they say about HTML is still 100% correct. A few minor things have been added to HTML since then, but it is unlikely that you will need those. If you do, just skype (dearwebby) or write me. Incidentally, that is how I got the name DearWebby: giving HTML and web help via PowWow, a program like Skype, that was popular in the early and mid 90's. Have Fun! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ The doctor noted with astonishment a tattoo of a bluebird on the shoulder of his 70 year old patient, who was in his office for her annual check up. She told him that she had wanted one her whole life, so she and her 16 year old grandson decided that they would get birthday tattoos together. The doctor inquired why she had not got one sooner. "Until now," she replied, "I was afraid of what my mother would say." ______________________________________________________ If you have a lot of tension and you get headaches, do what it says on the aspirin bottle: "Take two Aspirins and keep away from children." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Furniture Polish for Removing Labels I was looking for a easy way to remove the labels from glass jars. I started reading all the different solutions people had come up with, but I still wanted something easier. I was looking around my room and I saw my furniture polish sitting on top of my stereo. I grabbed it sprayed it on one of the jars and grabbed a flat screwdriver. It worked really good. Then I realized that if I just spray a coat of polish on the jar and let it sit for 10 minutes or maybe even five, the label and all the sticky glue comes right off with the wipe of a towel. What's even better is that I bought my furniture polish at the 99 cent store. By Gellen [1] ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ During a sermon a mother with a fidgety seven-year-old boy told me how she finally got her son to sit still and be quiet. "About halfway through the sermon, she leaned over and whispered, 'If you don't be quiet, the Pastor is going to lose his place and will have to start his sermon all over again!' "It worked." _____________________________________________________ "I play golf in the low 80's," the little old man was telling one of the young boys at the club. "Wow," said the young man, "that's pretty impressive." "Not really," said the little old man. "Any hotter and I'd probably have a stroke." ____________________________________________________
