Good Morning, ,

Today is Monday, November 9

Members of the city council in Iowa City, Iowa voted Monday 
to remove a veterans memorial that included a cross from 
a local park, and in turn, members of the community voted 
on Tuesday to remove those council members from office.

”We warned them multiple times if they let our town down. 
they WILL be voted out,” Allison Schmitz of Stop the Insanity 
posted online this week. “They didn’t listen, and look, 
the people have SPOKEN!”

The Mudslims haven't got a chance there, any more than to get
the crosses be to removed from Arlington.

Kudos to the people of Iowa !

Have FUN!

Texas robber arrested after getting stabbed with pumpkin carving knife A Dallas-area father carving jack-o-lanterns with his 7-year-old daughter for Halloween stabbed a suspected car thief with a knife after the alleged criminal broke into their home, police said on Wednesday. The suspect stole a car from a nearby gas station on Tuesday evening, crashed it and then ran into a neighborhood to try to elude officers, said police in Arlington, west of Dallas. Brian Hackney told the local NBC TV affiliate he was carving pumpkins with his daughter when the suspect ran into his home and began rifling through his wife's purse. Hackney said he had a knife readily in hand, confronted the intruder and stabbed him in the back. A neighbor called the 911 emergency line while Hackney held down the intruder until police arrived. "I just went into protection mode," Hackney told the television station. "Ladies say 'mama bear,' but it was 'papa bear' here." The father and daughter were not injured in the incident. The suspect was taken to a local hospital for treatment, police said. The suspect, identified as Buford Boone, has been charged with car theft and robbery. No lawyer was listed on his arrest report. To avoid racial profiling there is no mug shot.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ingrid Re: Which browser is better? Dear Webby, I have frequent "Browser is not responding" errors. I won't use IE for security reasons, just FF and Chrome. Which one is better, or what shoul I do? Ingrid Dear ingrid Yes. Between FF and Chrome, it is like with political parties. Each one is worse than the other. Both of those browsers have frequent updates and they are quite dilligent in removing security hazards, and they are even more dilligent in copying whatever new gimmick the other one came up with. We are getting to the point where FF and Chrome are just as badly overloaded as IE, where we need a totally new browser. There is no point switching back and forth betweem them. Pick whicever one is most comfortable for you, and get used to it's peculiarities. Get ONE-TAB, an add on for the browser. It is similar to Bookmarks, but easier to find recently one-tabbed items. With it you can reduce the number of tabs quite efficiently and easily resurract them. Naturally, the fewer open tabs you have, the faster your browser will run Have FUN!

Other situations would be: purchasing used furniture that has old moldy scent or cigarette/cigar smoke odor. One thing that seems to work the best for me is to use coffee grounds. You can purchase the cheapest coffee for this so it's an inexpensive trick. You just put the grounds in a brown paper bag or staple them up in coffee filters or for a little more money/convenience you can purchase the pre-packed coffee filters. Then you just set them around where the odors are. It can take a day or so to remove the odor completely, but in most cases you can at least handle the area within a short period of time. I hope this trick help many of you out. By Bergster417 [1] ______________________________________________________

He started to insult me. He used really bad language. He even threatened me!" "How did you meet this fellow?" her husband asked, very concerned. "Well," she says, "we met by accident. I ran into his wheelchair with the car." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ A Guy and his wife are riding two up on a bike along a twisty road with a 55MPH limit. A cop pulls them over. "Had you going about 70 in 55 back there," says the cop. "Not me," says the guy, "Could be your radar picked up someone else or something, but my speedometer was set right on 55." The wife pipes up, "You were to going 70. I've told you 20 miles back you were going to get stopped if you didn't slow down." "Quiet please!" mumbles the guy. "Can I see your proof of insurance?" asks the cop. "Sure, my card is right here in my wallet." The wife says, "That card's no good and you know it. You haven't paid the last premium and the company sent you a cancellation notice." "Damn," yells the guy. "Would you shut up for a minute?" "Ma'am," says the cop. "Does this guy always talk to you like this?" "Only when he's been drinking." ____________________________________________________ A father gave his teenage daughter an untrained pup for her birthday.

We chose that venue because it's supposed to be haunted. Most evenings, the guests are either exploring the hotel for the dearly departed or are taking the weekend ghost tour again hoping to encounter a ghost. Truth be told, we booked lodging there for the same reason. With all this talk about ghosts in mind, we retired for the evening. Now I'm an older guy and relieving myself several times during the night had become much more commonplace than it was in my younger years. I was hoping that one good scare might have me evacuating my bladder enough to get me a modicum of uninterrupted sleep. I knew better but hope springs eternal. As expected, during the midnight hours I paid John a visit and turned to go back to bed. It was then that I actually saw a ghost! I screamed and stood there in fear not moving a muscle. A few minutes passed when I noticed that the ghost didn't move unless I did. It was at that point that I realized I was staring at myself in the door mirror.
