His parents tried everything, but nothing worked, so his parents ended up sending him to a school in Canada. Well, when report card time rolled around, his parents took it, and, with much trepidation, opened it little by little...and saw an A, then another A, and another...however, the final grade was the dreaded one - the mathematics... Well, they opened the page, and saw an A! Incredible! They asked their son what had brought the turnaround, especially in that troubling subject. He said, "Well, when I walked into the classroom, and saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they took their math pretty seriously." ______________________________________________________ Gramma sent her grandson Johnny down to the water hole to get some water for cooking dinner. As he was dipping the bucket in, he saw two big eyes looking back at him. He dropped the bucket and hightailed it for Gramma's kitchen. "Now, where's my bucket and my water?" Gramma asked him. "I can't get any water from that water hole, Gramma" cried Johnny. "There's a BIG ol' alligator down there!" "Now don't you mind that ol' alligator, Johnny. He's been there for a few years now, and he's never hurt no one. Why, he's probably as scared of you as you are of him!" "Well, Gramma," replied Johnny, "if he's as scared of me as I am of him, then that water ain't fit to drink!" ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Wayne An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Michelle Yeh, 28, San Pedro, California
California high school teacher arrested for sex with a number of underage boys Former San Pedro High School substitute teacher Michelle Yeh appeared in Long Beach court Friday afternoon facing charges of sex-related allegations involving teenage boys. Yeh looked at the 15-year-old boy on the stand as he told the court about alleged sexual acts with his 28-year-old substitute biology teacher. One incident he testified happened in his bedroom. "We started having sex on the bed, but it was making a lot of noise, so we laid down on the carpet," he said. The boy, not being identified because he's a juvenile, alleged Yeh bought him an Xbox 360 and gave him money for things, including marijuana. Prosecutors allege there were more than 70 text messages between Yeh and that student. The boy is one of four alleged victims testifying in a Long Beach courtroom. Yeh plead not guilty in August to felony charges, including oral sex and unlawful sex with a minor under 16 involving two boys. She's also facing misdemeanor charges involving two other teenage boys. Yeh is in custody after allegedly violating a court order last month by texting one of the alleged victims. If convicted, Yeh could face up to nine years and eight months in prison.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Janice Re: AVG nuisance on FireFox Dear Webby, Question: My Firefox icon managed to get an AVG shield attached to it. This makes a request every time I log into the internet to make changes. It is very annoying. How can I unattached the little debugger to keep it from slowing the internet process? Janice McAfee has had a WebShield for many years, and AVG decided to copy that. Unfortunately, their copy is rather slow, especially so when you are already handicapped by Yahoo. Try to find out what exactly AVG calls that add-on, and then dump it. You should be able to UNinstall it from the control panel, programs. Depending on how closely they copied McAfee, it will be a separate application, and UNinstalling it will not kill your regular AVG. It might even be an ADD-On in FireFox. Check that first, since that would be the easiest. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ A woman from the southern part of Alabama goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is written. The obit editor informs her that the fee for the obituary is 50 cents a word. She pauses, reflects and then says, "Well, then, let it read, 'Billy Bob died'." Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor says, "Sorry ma'am, there is a 7 word minimum on all obituaries." Only a little flustered, she thinks things over and in a few seconds says, "In that case, let it read, 'Billy Bob died - 1983 Pick-up for sale.'" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Motion Detector Lights for Home Security Exterior motion detecting lights do not cost a great deal more than other types of outside lighting. Of course, they're sometimes activated by leaves blown about by the wind, but I particularly like them for the back of the house as well as the alley. Battery operated smaller versions are available for interior windows and don't require mounting or electronic know-how: simply put them on the window ledge. Anyone peering in hoping for a closer look at your possessions or wanting to break in will be under a spotlight and, if you're awake, the light going on will alert you to a potential intruder. Depending on your level of concern, consider investing in noise-making motion detectors (which can cost as little as $10 each) for your ground floor and/or basement windows. Make a note to check or replace the batteries on a regular basis. By Rose Anne Hutchence [7] You can even get motion detector (plastic) dogs, that produce a very credible bark. Have FUN!

"To make myself beautiful," said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a tissue. "What's the matter?" asked Little Johnny. "Giving up?" ___________________________________________________

The KFPS Royal Friesian Horse ____________________________________________________ A 93 year old man went to his doctor to get a physical. A week later, the doctor saw the man walking down the street with an attractive young woman on his arm. At the man's next visit, the doctor said, "I saw you with a lady the other day. You're really doing great, aren't you?" The man replied, "Just doing what you said Doc, 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful'." The Doctor said, "I didn't say that. I said you got a heart murmur. Be careful." "Too late! I like my version a lot better." ____________________________________________________ "So, what's the matter?" asked one woman of her friend over coffee. "I thought you just got back from a nice relaxing fishing trip with your husband." "Oh, everything went wrong," the second woman answered. "First, he said I talked so loud I would scare the fish. Then he said I was using the wrong bait; and then that I was reeling in too soon. "All that might have been all right; but then, to make matters worse, I ended up catching a lot of fish, and HE didn't catch any!" ____________________________________________________ Noella's Blunders Thanks to Karyn for today's blunder: I do love my hair, but it is really, really wild! It's so wild, in fact, that I have to watch and make sure it gets in the car after me so I don't close the door on my hair. One day, however, when I got back to work from lunch, I noticed people were looking at me funny and sniffing. Finally, someone asked me what I'd had to eat. It was then that I realized the sardines I'd had for lunch were all in my hair! Ugh!!!! Karyn Noella ____________________________________________________
