The only way to reach the monastery was to be suspended in a basket which was pulled to the top by several monks who pulled and tugged with all their strength. Obviously the ride up the steep cliff in that basket was terrifying. One tourist got exceedingly nervous about half-way up as he noticed that the rope by which he was suspended was old and frayed. With a trembling voice he asked the monk who was riding with him in the basket how often they changed the rope. The monk thought for a moment and answered brusquely, "Whenever it breaks." ______________________________________________________ No wonder kids are confused today.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Wilbert Carter, 31 Baltimore,
Dad Arrested for cooking 2 year old girl in hot car for 16 hours Tragedy in Baltimore, where a 2-year-old girl died yesterday after being left in a hot car. Police say her father, Wilbert Carter, left her in the car sometime Sunday, and WBAL-TV reports that she was inside it for at least 16 hours. Carter, 31, is also reportedly the one who found her the next day around 5pm and ran to call police, who found little Leasia Carter in the locked car. A witness says she saw Wilbert Carter walking down the street, crying. "A lady comes out of the house or walks out the street and they just start screaming." Another witness says Carter was "sitting there like, 'Somebody's dead, somebody's dead,' and we couldn't make out what he was saying, but we know he was saying somebody was dead." He was later arrested on second-degree murder and child abuse charges. Carter told police he had five drinks on Sunday, was drinking into the wee hours of Monday, and couldn't remember what happened, but the Washington Post reports that he said a friend drove his car to the location where the girl was later found. "The father went home at some point in time last night," a police official said yesterday. "This afternoon when he woke up, he discovered that his child wasn't there." Adds a police spokesperson today, "When he woke up around 4pm yesterday afternoon, that's when he began searching for his daughter." He reportedly asked his mother and aunt where she was and they said they saw him come home at 7am and assumed the girl was with his sister, but he found her after a cousin called to alert him to where his car was parked. The child was not breathing when she was found, and she suffered second-degree burns in the 90-degree heat. So far, no protests or looting are planned.

He will NEVER be able to figure it out. He's still sad they did away with Windows 3.1 !! You talked about a program that would make Windows 8 look like Windows 7 which he uses now. What is it and would it work with the touch screen? Ginger Dear Ginger I agree with your hubby, and that is indeed the most frequent question about W8: "How do I make it look and act like W7 or XP, so that I can get some work done?" Here is how: Make W8 or 8.1 look like Windows 7 or XP Have Fun! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ "I noticed you always carry my photo in your handbag. Why?" a husband asked his wife. "When there is a problem, no matter how impossible, I look at your picture and the problem always disappears," she said. The man smiled. "You see how good I am for you?" he asked. "Yes," she said. "I see your picture and say to myself, 'Is this really a problem, -compared to him?'" ______________________________________________________ Did you hear about the Indian chief who traded in his forty year old wife for two twenty year olds? A couple of weeks later a fellow brave saw him back with his original forty-year old wife. He said, "What happened to your two twenty- year-olds?" The Chief replied, "Hmmph, not wired for 220!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Spray Deodorant for Removing Ink Stains Spray deodorant on the stain, then rub with a cloth. It should come off. If it doesn't come off straight away, but instead only fades after you have rubbed it, then spray more deodorant on the stain. :) Source: My brother By marcyyyyyyyyy [1] ______________________________________________________
