For example: USA uses USS which means "United States Ship." The British uses HMS which means "Her Majesty's Ship." and now...Italy is using AMB which apparently means "At's-a My Boat!" ______________________________________________________ was at a yard sale one day and saw a box marked "Electronic cat and dog caller -- guaranteed to work." looked inside and was amused to see an electric can opener. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Noella for this picture: ______________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Robert Christian Chandler, 30, Myrtle Beach South Carolina
Bonehead battered wife after she posted his bail Moments after his wife bailed him out of jail today, a South Carolina man punched the woman in the face as the pair walked out the police department’s front door, according to an arrest report. Robert Christian Chandler, 30, was freed from the Myrtle Beach jail around midnight after his spouse posted $262 bond. But Chandler, who had been locked up on a disorderly conduct charge, did not appear grateful for his release. “What are you doing here, ho?” Chandler asked his wife multiple times, cops reported. A surveillance camera in the police department’s lobby recorded Chandler “grabbing the victim aggressively” as they walked toward the front door. Upon exiting police headquarters, Chandler punched his wife in the face, according to a police dispatch supervisor who witnessed the attack. Video shows the woman “hitting the wall outside the doors,” while the supervisor can be heard saying, “He just hit her.” The 30-year-old victim had cuts on her right arm and her nose was swollen, police noted. While acknowledging that Chandler “grabbed and shoved her,” she said that she did not want him “in any more trouble as she just bailed him out of jail.” Chandler, seen above, was arrested at the police station and returned to jail, this time for misdemeanor domestic violence. However, the unemployed Chandler only spent about ten hours in custody before he was released from the lockup on a $2130 personal recognizance bond.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Cora Re: Windows 10 nagger Dear Webby Good Morning Webby, Have been getting pop ups to get Windows 10 installed. What are your thoughts about it now? What bothers me is.....if I get it installed and don’t like it then what? Really undecided on this. Any help you can give please. Cora Dear Cora Neither your machine nor you are ready for Windows 10. It is just a scam to get you to buy a new computer. There IS a secret way to go back, theoretically, but it is apparently neither easy nor totally complete. IF and when your current machine dies of old age and you HAVE to replace it, by then the new machines will probably have Windows 11 or 12 on them. It is not a good idea to volunteer to become a guinea pig on a x.0 version. At the very least, wait until 10.1 or 10.2 Also keep in mind, would you buy a detergent or soap if you were pestered with rude naggers like they do with Windows 10, or would you tell them where to stuff their soap ? Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ "I'm ashamed of you," the mother said. "Fighting with your best friend is a terrible thing to do!" "He threw a rock at me!" the boy said. "So I threw one at him." The mother stated emphatically, "When he threw a rock at you, you should have come to me." The boy quickly replied, "What good would that have done? You can't hit a garbage can from two feet away! My aim is much better than yours!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Muffin in a Minute (Microwave) This is a recipe that can be varied to your taste.

"A good report card next month," he replied. ___________________________________________________

Leaky concrete. Hire the right people if you want a complicated job done. I can't imagine that helicopter pilot having that level of control.
