Finally one day a boat comes sailing into view, and the man frantically waves and draws the skipper's attention. The boat comes near the island, and the sailor gets out and greets the stranded man. After awhile the sailor asks, "What are those three huts you have here?" "Well, that's my house there." "What's that next hut?" asks the sailor. "I built that hut to be my church." "What about the other hut?" "Oh, that's where I used to go to church." ______________________________________________________

Thanks to Don for reporting this bonehead! An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Corinne Novak, 37, Dunedin, Pinellas County Floriduh
Abusive wife was arrested after GoPro on US Army Ranger records her attack. A woman in Florida allegedly attacked her estranged US Army Ranger husband and then threatened to report to police that he was the aggressor — but fortunately for him, it was caught on a GoPro video, and now she’s behind bars. The low blow was caught on a GoPro that the man, Michael Novak, had started carrying with him due to numerous instances, where he said he’s had to use a camera to either prove her guilt or prove his own innocence, according to a WTSP report. The woman, 37-year-old Corinne Novak, was taken to jail by Pinellas County deputies. The two are involved in an ugly divorce and custody battle over their twin 2-year-old children. Michael attaches the GoPro to his belt with a parachute cord to make sure every single encounter he has with his wife is fully documented. Fortunately for him, the GoPro had a fairly wide angle scope on it that catches much of the action, even from very close up. The footage in question comes from a custody exchange last week, when Michael went to reach into the back of the car to unbuckle one of the sons. Suddenly, he screams and jerks backward, and a frame-by-frame review of the footage appears to show her hand as she grabs his genitals. Michael said he was hopeful the footage would be helpful in a future court appearance to disprove his wife’s claims and prove his own, as men are often not believed in domestic disputes. Michael Novak had reportedly been frustrated by previous attacks and decided he needed video evidence that Corinne Novak was out of control and abusing him — both in an attempt to prove his own claims, and to protect himself from her claims. The couple has been at odds for a while, so Michael Novak began taking steps to protect himself from what he says are false accusations, and to prove to the court his wife’s behavior. The full video shows Novak reaching into a vehicle to unbuckle one of his sons, when Corinne Novak sneaks up behind him and appears to strike him in the testicles. The incident apparently happened on the morning of Sept. 17 in the town of Dunedin. Michael says in the video, “What the **** is your problem?” while Corinne responds, “Why are you assaulting me?” immediately after the alleged testicle-grabbing. “Call the police, I’m going to tell them you just assaulted me,” she can be heard saying on the video shortly after this altercation. Michael Novak said he believes that she came at him from behind because she knows he wears the camera. Corinne Novak is being held on domestic violence charges. They have been married for 11 months, according to a News Channel 8 report. Michael Novak said he has lots more video of her actions, including one video where she tased him while his arms were loaded with groceries. In the latest video, the mother was waiting to pick up the boys for visitation. She was arrested after a Pinellas County deputy reviewed the GoPro video.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jaye Re: TurboYourPC scamware? Dear Webby, Webby, is this for real??? "1 Reason Not To Buy A New Computer Do you have a slow Computer? Do Not buy a new PC or call a PC repair company. One simple tip is saving people Across the globe Thousands Of dollars... Jaye Dear Jaye With that much hype I would bet it is a scam. The truth is that an old XP machine is indeed just fine for WORKING. Look at the Millions of machines at the store checkouts, all running either XP or Linux. Look at all the old XP machines in accounting offices, working just fine. Look at the old XP machines used for word processing in Millions of offices, WORKING just fine. I have seen even Windows 98 machines running WordPerfect and cranking out letters as fast as the ladies did in the 80's on PCs with IBM DisplayWrite, when they were paid according to how many letters they did from tape or steno. As long as you don't need to run modern games or social media, and just WORK, the old machines are fine. Even if you use the machine for occasional playing and browsing and goofing around on the Internet, XP machines are still fine. There are lots of people who have refused to change to W2000, ME, VISTA, W7, W8, W10. They all say that as long as the old clunker still works and works faster than their neighbor's W10 machine, they are in no hurry to switch. Just follow the instructions I gave you a week or so ago. UNinstall all unnecessary programs. Defrag your hard drive. Use PC-Mechanic to optimize the registry safely And occasionally use Crap Cleaner to get rid of unnecessary crap. Then your old machine will run almost as fast as when you bought it. That was pretty fast, right? There is a free program called "Should I Remove It" at http://www.shouldiremoveit.com/ that will help you find long forgotten programs that you once tried and never used again. That too requires YOUR actions. It only recommends what you can safely remove. It probably also reminds you of a program or two that you thought you lost, because Windows moved it's icon off the edge. Well worth running that! And it is free! The truth is that no program can do those 4 steps all alone. YOU have to decide which unnecessary programs to dump, when and how to defrag, etc. If a program claims it can do all that for a mere fist full of money, tell them to stick it where the sun don't shine. By the way, if you want to throw money at that "TurboYourPC", first get the Revo-Uninstaller, so that you can get rid of every part of it, when you see that it is just BS. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ On a cruise to Alaska, I saw my very first glacier in the magnificent Inside Passage. Excitedly, I asked the ship's officer what it was called. "It's some dumb glacier," he replied. Disappointed by his attitude, I bought a map to figure it out myself. I spotted our location and found the name of the ice mass. It was called, just as he'd said, "Sumdum Glacier." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Meatball Clouds A super simple, low cost appetizer or main dish for Sunday football parties!

____________________________________________________ The homeowner was delighted with the way the painter had done all the work on his house. "You did a great job," he said and handed the man a check. "Also, in order to thank you, here's an extra $80 to take the missus out to dinner and a movie." The painter thanked him and agreed to do that. Later that night, the doorbell rang and it was the painter. Thinking the man had forgotten something he asked, "What's the matter, did you forget something?" "Nope," replied the painter. "I'm a man of my word. I'm here to take your missus out to dinner and a movie like you asked." ____________________________________________________
