______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Darius McCollum, 49, New York, NY
Notorious Subway Joy-Rider was arrested after he stole a NJ Bus Police say a man with a long history of pretending to be a transit worker and commandeering New York City subway trains for joy rides has been arrested after stealing a commercial passenger bus from New Jersey. The New York Police Department says Darius McCollum was arrested Wednesday by officers who spotted the bus traveling down a street in Brooklyn. McCollum has 29 transit-related arrests, starting in 1981, when he drove the E train to the World Trade Center at the age of 15. Usually he just steals subway trains, but seems to have switched to buses now. In 2008, he was arrested for stealing a Trailways bus from Hoboken, New Jersey. McCollum is being held at a police station in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Yolanda Re: Blank screen on old computer Dear Webby, I hope you can help me. Last Saturday I tried to turn on my computer. The power button lit up and couple of other buttons did as well. The wifi button stayed off. There is no sound and has a blank screen. I have tried to unplug from power source and remove the battery and hold down the power button. I bought it used 2 years ago, so is it worth fixing or just scrap it? I'd appreciate your help and advice. Thank you very much. Yolanda Dear Yolanda That isn't enough information to recommend any way to fix the problem. However, without sound or a working screen, it would probably cost more to fix it than it is worth. Time to shop for a replacement. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ One day, after a man had his annual physical, the doctor came out and said, "You had a great check-up. Is there anything that you'd like to talk about or ask me?" "Well," he said, "I was thinking about getting a vasectomy." "That's a big decision! Have you talked it over with your family?" "Yeah, we took a vote... and they're in favor of it, 15 to 2." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Storing Foil and Waxed Paper Boxes I found this idea on Pinterest or here (not sure where, sorry!) It stated that if you get a wire mesh document holder from the Dollar stores, they work great for those boxes you have to roll things out of. I found one in blue for .25 at a thrift store and did just that. It's perfect for 4-5 boxes of foil, wax paper, baggies and more. N-JOY!

_____________________________________________________ A young woman, a military dependant, came into the dental clinic with a problem tooth. She had several children and appeared to be quite ready to give birth to another one at almost any moment. It was necessary to use X-rays to locate the source of her problem, so she was conducted to the dental unit with an X-ray machine, and her husband followed. The X-ray technician was lining up the cone of the machine preparatory to making the first exposure, when he noticed that the young woman's husband was standing beyond her, but in a position where he would receive some radiation after it passed through her teeth. Being well trained, the technician stopped and asked the fellow to move to a safer position. "Sir, please step over there. Too much of this radiation will make you sterile." A broad smile appeared on the young woman's face, her eyes grew wide with excitement, and she clapped her hands while saying, "Joe, come here, hold my hand!" ___________________________________________________
All about that bass (eye candy for the guys)
____________________________________________________ A man was telling his neighbor, "I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand dollars, but it's state of the art and the best I could find." "Really," answered the neighbor. "What kind is it?" "Twelve thirty." ____________________________________________________ A man was bragging about his sister who disguised herself as a man and joined the army. "But, wait a minute," said the listener, "She'll have to dress with the boys and shower with them too. Won't she?" "Sure," replied the man. "Well, won't they find out?" The man shrugged, "So far, none of them complained." ____________________________________________________ Noella's Blunders Being a member of a small church with its own Bible school many people came and went. It was my duty to keep the church phone list updated. I was shy so this forced me to approach new people and get information from them. I was also single, and any new guys were prospects. A cute redheaded guy started coming and I thought, “I like this job, now I can get his phone number” - you know, for emergencies. I didn’t want to ask him directly because I was afraid he might not understand and think me too forward. I knew through the grapevine that he was staying with another family, and when I asked they told me his name and mentioned that he had just moved down the street. Since several of our members lived on that street, I queried several of them, none of whom knew his number. Finally I approached him and mentioned that I needed his phone number for our church directory and mentioned that I’d asked several others but no one seemed to know. His reply had me wondering myself, “Well, why didn’t you call ‘Information’?” Noella ____________________________________________________
