Thanks, Neil!

I had scrimped to save towards winter tires and had enough
for half of one tire in the jar. But such was not to be.
Got nailed by the cops.
Some woman was texting or doing something, that caused her 
to swerve and change speeds, so I decided to pass her at 
the earliest opportunity, and let her have her accident 
somewhere behind me.

No problem, I thought. When there was a break in the traffic
in the other lane, I stomped on the gas, passed her and was 
back in my lane long before there was traffic on the other 

Unfortunately, a cop was the second car in that lane, and
he saw his opportunity to be nasty to a good guy.
Apparently, at the moment I passed the SUV, I was briefly
going 30 over the speed limit.

It used to be that just for a second for passing it was 
OK to go over the speed limit. Apparently not, when I am 
the victim. That sure put a big damper on my mood.
No winter tires, and no Christmas this year.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Gary Victor 51, Victorville, California
'Maxi Pad Bandit' Arrested Despite Fiendishly Clever Disguise Who was that "maxied" man? A man accused of robbing an auto parts store in Apple Valley, California, has been arrested despite disguising his face by strategically putting a maxi pad over his eyes. Surveillance video, taken around 6:40 p.m. on Sept. 28, shows a man with a feminine hygiene taped on his head, using a piece of wood to break the glass front door of a Battery Mart and slip inside the store, according to Victor Valley News. The suspect stole several battery chargers and flashlights before fleeing the scene in a white 1992 Dodge Dynasty. When Battery Mart owner Mark Wedell saw the video, he immediately noticed something about the burglar. “Right away everybody started saying we should call this guy the maxi pad bandit,” Wedell told NBC Los Angeles. “We had a pretty good picture of his face 'cause he came to the store the first time and looked in the window without his maxi pad on.” “But when he came back and he had the maxi pad over his eyes, I guess he thought it was going to take care of everything." Investigators for the San Bernardino Sheriff's Dept. had no problem seeing through the fiendishly clever disguise and quickly arrested their sanitary suspect, 51-year-old Gary Victor. "It wasn't surprising, but yes, that is, in fact, that's what he was trying to conceal his identity with, and he didn't do a very good job," police spokeswoman Trish Hill said, according to UPI. Victor was arrested and taken into custody on suspicion of burglary and possessing stolen property. The stolen items were returned to Battery Mart, according to the Victorville Daily Press. The maxi pad was recovered and taken into evidence, Hill told HuffPost. Victor is a convicted felon with an extensive history of run-ins with the law, according to the Victor Valley News.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ed Re: Scamware Dear Webby Hi. Your letter has helped me out of so many binds. Thank you. I just got a virus on my computer that I can't handle. I think I heard about this type on your letter not too long ago. It has shut down everything that I want to use. Pretty much my whole operating system, and put a bunch of programs on my computer. Then it tells me my computer has been rendered useless for safety and I should call an 877 number for assistance. I have run virus scans in safe mode, but the virus cannot be found. And I can not get rid of it. Any help or advice would be much appreciated. I am fearful I will have to take the computer in to a shop to get rid of it as it is the worst virus I have ever seen. Thanks Ed Dear Ed I guess you don't have McAfee. You MIGHT be able to install it, but many of those viruses block it. Try getting it via You might be able to sneak it onto the machine via that route. If it doesn't get rid of the scamware, chat their support. They can get onto your machine and do miracles there. Don't worry about your porn collection. Those guys have seen bigger ones, and are not interested in anything except fixing as many machines per day as possible. You have to have a current account with McAfee, though. Without that, they can't help you. Good Luck!
