Suddenly there was a jingle on the floor. Most necks were craned. One elderly gentleman, however, bent down and picked something up. He then asked, "Did anyone drop a half dollar?" "I did," answered three men at once. "Well," said the elderly gent with a smile, "here's a dime of it." ______________________________________________________ >From Lillemor For those of my older generation (like me) who do not really comprehend the need for Facebook: Presently, I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles. Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell the passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel, what I have done the night before, and what I will do tomorrow. Then, I give them pictures of my family, my dog, me gardening, and spending time in my pool. I also listen to their conversations, and I tell them I love them. And, it works. I already have three persons following me ... two police officers and a psychiatrist ______________________________________________________ Tim Durkan Photography From Tim: It's been a long but exciting night that I'm just getting home from! Lugging 40lbs of gear around town, months of planning and a TON of good luck weather wise finally paid off! For those interested - the photo I shared is one shot (non layered) taken on a Nikon D750 body with 200-400mm telephoto lens. I had 4 cameras, 4 lenses, 4 tripods and a VERY good assistant tonight THANK YOU Brother Paul Stevenson! Nikon And here is Dallas, sent in by SexySassySatin No name of the photographer yet. Dallas After spending 5 hours on a rooftop with an incredible view of Dallas, the photographer was able to create this composite image showing the moons transition from full moon, to full lunar eclipse, and back. Each moon image was shot approximately 10 minutes apart to capture the entire transition.

Charlie quickly put two dollars on that horse and won close to fifty bucks! The Priest kept blessing horses and Charlie kept betting on them and they won! The last race of the day was the biggest and Charlie saw the Priest with that horse, also! He quickly went to his bank and withdrew his life's savings of $20,000, went back to the racetrack and put it all on that horse! He watched the race in certain anticipation of leaving a millionaire! The horse was last to cross the line and Charlie was dead broke! He couldn't believe what happened so he went looking for the Priest. He found the man and asked, "What happened to that last horse you blessed? Because your blessing didn't work, I've lost all of my money!" The Priest said, "That's the trouble with you Protestants. You can't tell the difference between a blessing and the Last Rites!" ______________________________________________________

Thanks to Noella for reporting this bonehead! An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Imani Knight-Brantley, 16, Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania
Girl, 16, doused school guards with gasoline, then tried to set them on fire A Pennsylvania girl doused school security guards with gasoline and then attempted to light the victims on fire, according to investigators who have charged the teen with numerous felonies. In retaliation for a run-in last week with a guard, Imani Knight-Brantley, 16, returned Monday to her Pittsburgh-area high school carrying a two-liter Sprite bottle containing gasoline. According to police, Knight-Brantley was booted from Wilkinsburg High School Friday after being caught using a cell phone in class. She later returned to get food at an after-school program, but was again escorted from the building by guard Brandon Murray. As she was being removed the second time, Knight-Brantley threw a milk carton at Murray. As detailed in a criminal complaint, Knight-Brantley confronted Murray upon returning to the school Monday. Police allege that she splashed gasoline on Murray and a second security official. As the guards grappled with Knight-Brantley, she tried to ignite the gasoline with an outdoor grill lighter. After police arrived to arrest Knight-Brantley, students were evacuated due to the smell of gasoline throughout the school. According to court records, Knight-Brantley faces four counts of aggravated assault and causing or risking catastrophe, both felonies. She is also charged with misdemeanor weapons possession and reckless endangerment counts. Knight-Brantley, who has been charged as an adult, is being held in the Allegheny County jail in lieu of $100,000 bond. As seen in the above booking photo, the teen has the word “Love” tattooed on her neck. Pennsylvania law bars anyone under the age of 18 from being tattooed, unless the minor’s parent or guardian has consented to the inking and is present for the tattooing.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Annamarie Re: Skype Dear Webby I was really careful to always refuse to Update Skype to Version 7.0 after I had seen it on my daughter's computer. 7.0 stinks! But today they somehow snuck it in. I had too many tabs open on Chrome, and McAfee was doing a scan, and I had too many programs open. The machine almost crashed, and while I was frantically tryiing to close stuff, they sleazed in their update in the background. Bastids! As you may have noticed, once a Skype update has started, the bastids won't let you cancel or stop it. So I wound up with the ugly and slow 7.0 Yuck! I tried running the carefully saved 6.20 setup, but it bombed with the message that I had a newer version installed. @#$%&!!! Now what? Annamarie Dear Annamarie I found that uninstalling Skype does not mess up the history or the contact list, but it is best to save it anyway. Hit the Windows key and R to get the RUN field above the START. Type or paste: %appdata% You see a huge mess of folders and files about all kinds of programs, including Skype CTRL-drag the Skype folder onto a camera chip or removable drive, where Microsoft can't touch it. You can CTRL-drag it onto the desktop, and from there onto a save place. Once your data is safe, do the Windows key and R trick again and this type paste appwiz.cpl That gets you to Programs, Uninstall in the Control panel without mousing around. Highlight Skype, right-click and select Uninstall. It will whine a bit but eventually 7.0 will go away. Don't worry if the desktop icons will all go blank during that. They will come back. Once everything has settled down, you can run the 6.20 installation and normally all your contacts and history will come back. If they don't, copy the back-up back to where you got them from. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Amazing!

So I next used narrow masking tape to tape off the brick pattern. I then used a red brick color and an old paintbrush to paint the bricks (I mixed a little black acrylic paint with the red to make it look more authentic). It has worn fairly well and only needed a few touch ups each summer. I love the way my patio looks now and it sure beats the cost of installing brick pavers! By Marianne from Trenton, Ohio You can mix old-fashioned Poly-Filler into the Porch/Patio paint. It makes it less slippery when wet, and MUCH more durable. Don't use any of the soft drywall repair compunds. You need REAL Poly-Filler or Poly-Filla. You can apply it with a large puddle moover squeegee. The small ridges you might wind up with make it look even better. If some of the squeegee ridges are too high, you can sand them with a belt sander. That is when you find out that the porch-patio paint / Poly-Filler combo gets as hard as concrete. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A store manager overheard a clerk saying to a customer, "No, ma'am, we haven't had any for quite some time now, and it doesn't look as if we'll be getting any more." Alarmed by what was being said, the manager rushed over to the customer who was walking out the door and said, "That isn't true, ma'am. Of course, we'll have some soon. In fact, I personally placed an order for them just a couple of days ago." Then the manager drew the clerk aside and growled, "Never, never, never, never say we don't have something. If we don't have it, say we ordered it and it's on its way. Now, what was it she asked if we had any?" "Rapes in the parking lot." ___________________________________________________
