______________________________________________________ Today's Bonehead Award goes to an Oregon man arrested for torching an apartment full of people Details at Boneheads Today, September 11, in 2001 In the U.S., four airliners were hijacked and were intentionally crashed by Muslim extremists. Two airliners hit the World Trade Center in New York City, NY. One airliner hit the Pentagon in Arlington, VA. Another airliner crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. About 3,000 innocent people were killed. Now various US universities are teaching that the 9/11 attacks were the fault of the US and that the al Qaeda terrorists are the real victims. See NY Post 2015/09/06/ 2012 Terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The American ambassador and four former marines, who had been working nearby and rushed to defend the US ambassador, but were denied airborne support, were brutally murdered and ten others were injured. Airborne support was there and ready, but ordered to hold off. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fell on her head a few weeks later and could not remember that order. The Marines will always remember.

Reported by Noella An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joshua Aaron Bigsby, 28, Portland, Oregon
Oregon man arrested for torching an apartment full of people An arson suspect is shown on surveillance video carrying a gasoline can moments before witnesses saw him use a lighter to start an apartment fire, according to prosecutors. Joshua Aaron Bigsby, was invited to the apartment after meeting the tenants late Friday and into early Saturday morning at the Fortune Star Lounge in southeast Portland, according to court documents filed by Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Annie Shoen. A fight broke out between some of the tenants and Bigsby, who was asked to leave. Bigsby and “his companions” left, but he returned a short time later and forced his way into the apartment with “an old style lighter in one hand and a gas can in the other,” according to Shoen’s affidavit. One of the witnesses inside the apartment told investigators she watched the resident try to hold the door closed while Bigsby kicked in the door and poured gasoline on him, according to court documents. The witness said she saw Bigsby light the victim on fire. The woman retreated and jumped out a second-story window. At least four adults and two sleeping children, ages 3 and 6, were inside the apartment when the fire was set, according to court records. The video that investigators were able to get allegedly showed Bigsby carrying a gas can, go out of view of the camera, and then run back into view. Bigsby lost a shoe that appeared to be on fire. Investigators learned of Bigsby after some of the people who had met him at the lounge said he introduced himself as “Josh Bigsby,” according to court documents. Portland Fire & Rescue investigator Rich McGraw was able to compare Bigsby’s Facebook page and the surveillance and confirmed they appeared to be the same person, court documents state. By Sunday, officers learned of Bigsby’s address and took him into custody. Bigsby appeared in court Tuesday and a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf. He has been charged with 7 counts of first-degree arson and one count each of second-degree assault, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal mischief, and recklessly endangering another person. He is scheduled to be back in court on September 16.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Richi Re: Speeding up a computer Dear Webby, I am wondering if there are any programs that really speed up the computer?I have glary utilities but it doesn't seem to do the job,do those actually work and speed up the computer? Have a gr8 your letter... tyvm Richi Dear Richi The Glary utilities may have some parts, that might be useful to you, but they are not known for speeding up anything. About the only one that does more than waste time and put on a cute song and dance is PC-Mechanic. See the blue banner on the Humor Letter. It actually did speed up my machine. No program will add more processor speed, RAM or hard drive space. There are some tricks you CAN use, though. UNinstall ALL programs, that you are not using. Most people have programs, that they once tried, or downloaded and were going to try some day. Get rid of them by using their UNinstaller, or uninstall them from the control panel. You can also use the free Revo Uninstaller They use space on the hard drive, and clutter up the registry, and almost every program also comes with a bunch of fonts. They are usually quite useless, but use RAM whenever that program is loaded. If it is a program that loads automatically, even though you haven't used it for many years, that is a total waste of RAM. Get rid of it! Then run a program like PC-Mechanic to get rid of their registry fragments. Once you have gotten rid of all the not used programs, defrag the hard drive. Defragler from the same people who gave us CrapCleaner, does a pretty good job, better than the built in Windows defrag. Keep in mind, during defrag everything slows down. It's AFTER the defrag that you will notice the improvement. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ One day, a foreign family arrived in New York City. This was the first time out of their native village, and it didn't take long before the wife got lost. The husband asked a passerby for help and was told to go to the police and report it. When he got there, a police officer asked him for the wife's description. "What's that?" asked the man. "Well, you see a description is telling what something looks like. For example, my wife is 25-years-old, 5'11", 140 lbs, 38-25-36 measurements. Now, what can you tell me about your wife?" "Maria can wait, lets go look for yours!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Organizing Spice Tins I was at my friend Erin's house for dinner over the weekend and I noticed she had her spice tins displayed in this super creative way. She bought rare earth style magnets at Fred Meyer and stuck all her spice tins to the side of her fridge using 2 magnets per tin. Magnetic spice tins are really popular right now, but require buying a whole new set. Erin said she really liked the idea and had been thinking of purchasing them until she realized all her spices were all ready in tins. Another great tip she shared with me is that she turns the tins around when they are empty so she knows to buy more of that spice to fill the tin back up. This is a great way to organize your spice tins up and out of the way. I also love the way they look displayed on the side of the fridge. ______________________________________________________

Unfortunately, she was not greatly enthusiastic about a trip that she considered too "educational" to be fun. However, on their return, Joe was pleased to hear how she and her classmates had been filled with awe and emotion as they gazed at the Washington Monument. "To think, dad," she marveled.

____________________________________________________ A man really loved a woman, but he was just too shy to propose to her. Now he was up in his years and neither of them had ever been married. Of course, they dated about once a week for the past six years, but he was so timid he just never got around to suggesting marriage much less living together. But one day, he became determined to ask her the question. So he calls her on the phone, "June." "Yes, this is June." "Will you marry me?" "Of course I will! By the way, who are you?" ____________________________________________________
