All she has to do is mention it to her husband and he says, "Let's eat out!" ______________________________________________________ A big-city lawyer was representing the railroad in a lawsuit filed by an old rancher. The rancher's prize bull was missing from the section through which the railroad passed. The rancher only wanted to be paid the fair value of the bull. The case was scheduled to be tried before the justice of the peace in the back room of the general store. The attorney for the railroad immediately cornered the rancher and tried to get him to settle out of court. The lawyer did his best selling job, and finally, even though the rancher insisted that a prize bull was worth five times what an ordinary bull is worth, he agreed to be satisfied with just half of what he was asking. After the rancher had signed the release and took the check and cashed it in at the store, the young lawyer couldn't resist gloating a little over his success, telling the rancher, "You know, I hate to tell you this, old man, but I put one over on you in there. I couldn't have won the case. The engineer was asleep and the fireman was in the caboose when the train went through your ranch that morning. I didn't have one single witness to put on the stand. I bluffed you!" The old rancher replied, "Well, I'll tell you, young feller, I was a little worried about winning that case myself, because that durned bull came home this morning." ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

Tennessee teacher arrested on sex abuse charges A Knox County teacher was arrested on sexual abuse charges involving a 14 year old student. News outlets report 28-year-old Serena Rae Milan turned herself in to authorities Wednesday at the Roger D. Wilson Detention Facility. A presentment shows she faces multiple charges including statutory rape by an authority figure, solicitation of a minor, sexual exploitation of a minor and sexual activity involving a minor. She worked at Northwest Middle School and resigned in July. The presentment alleges Milan repeatedly engaged in various sexual acts with a 14-year-old student from February to July.

______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Walter, the Stonecarver Re: Verizon > AOL Dear Webby, Tell the subscribers if they have a Verizon address, they will need to convert it to an AOL address by spring. Walter Dear Walter Considering the dumb stuff they are known for, it is not really a surprise. Your link to Verizon Email explains it all. There has been an update to that: You can continue to use your Verizon address, but you have to register with AOL and use their email system. Thanks to Walter for this alert! Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ One of my first evenings back from a business trip, my girl's understanding parents left us alone in the living room. Naturally, we did not talk all the time. In the midst of a kiss, I noticed her little sister in her nightgown watching us from the top of the stairway. I told her: "If you will be a good girl and go to bed, I will give you a quarter." Without taking the bribe or saying a word, she ran off but soon was back again. "Here is a dollar," she said. "I wanna watch." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Best Bacon Brussels Sprouts The reason why the word "best" is in the recipe is because this dish always converts the brussels sprouts naysayers by first bite. Deconstructing the sprout by serving it in loose leaf form helps those who compare the little vegetable to "mushy alien heads." Mushy alien heads? Yes! That's what I called them for 28 years! Now, cooked properly, I absolutely adore them. And guess what? This recipe has only three ingredients and takes 10 minutes to make. I have served this at Thanksgiving dinner numerous times and even the little ones loved it. Give it a shot! Approximate Time: 10 minutes Yield: 4 sides Ingredients: 6 large brussels sprouts (or 8 mediums) 2 strips of bacon 5 walnuts salt, pepper, and optional sprinkle of sugar to taste Best Bacon Brussels Sprouts Steps: Cut little cone/triangle shapes from the bottoms of the sprouts. Pull off the individual leaves off sprouts and collect in bowl/plate. Chop bacon into tiny cubes and render in a pan on medium heat until crispy. Remove bacon from pan and let rest on paper towel. Leave bacon drippings in pan and add brussels sprouts leaves. Cook for about 5 minutes. If you like your brussels sprouts on the softer, more wilted side, add a teaspoon of water to the pan and cover with lid, cook for an extra minute. I like mine crispy so I don't really do this ;) Chop nuts and add to sprouts. Stir well, add bacon back in. Season with salt and pepper to taste. You wont need much because of the bacon. Sprinkle in a tiny bit of sugar to pull out the caramelized notes, if you like. I do! Serve up and enjoy! By attosa [139] ______________________________________________________

While the strike was on, Jane called the bank, and asked if they were open. They told her they had two windows open upstairs in the office area. Then Jane asked, . . .

As I had done so many times before, I used a very sharp razor blade knife to carefully cut the label. Uh oh! Not careful enough. The bottle exploded. In my kitchen. All OVER my kitchen. Including an open silverware drawer. And the ceiling. The first thing I did was cry. Then I got busy. Real busy. It took me three hours to clean the entire mess, all the while thanking all the angels that it was DIET cola and not sticky. I probably don't need to say that I never, ever tried to do that again! Noella -------------------- The steam from a steam iron set to max and a plastic scraper work very well to get the labels off, even on ancient jam jars.
