He found an apartment in a small block and settled in. After a week or two, his mother called from Aberdeen to see how her son was doing in his new life. 'I'm fine, ' Angus said. 'But there are some really weird people living in these apartments. One woman cried all day long, another lies on her floor moaning, and there is a guy next door to me who bangs his head on the wall all the time.' 'Well, ma laddie,' says his mother, 'I suggest you don't associate with people like that.' 'Oh,' says Angus, 'I don't, Mam, I don't. No, I just stay inside me apartment all day and night, playing me bagpipes.' ______________________________________________________ Homonyms are similar sounding words, and they CAN be clean ones, like Soap and Hope.

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Lillemor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by De’Anthony A. Wiley, 20, Shawnee, Kansas
Armed robber kills store owner, claims he was entitled to 'self-defense' The widow of a Kansas gun-shop owner killed in a violent shootout with four armed robbers in January doesn't mince words when it comes to the issue of guns and the role they play in self-defense. “The fact of the matter is, society has gotten to the point where we have to defend ourselves," Becky Bieker to KCTV-TV. De’Anthony A. Wiley claims he had no choice and was entitled to return fire in "self-defense" while trying to flee the ensuing gun battle with the store's owner, Jon Bieker. Court papers filed on Thursday by Wiley's attorney seek protection by statutory immunity against his felony murder charge, reports WDAF-TV. Wiley claims after he communicated his intent to surrender, Bieker continued firing upon him and his three accomplices. Court papers say Wiley was shot in the spine and paralyzed, leaving him unable to escape. Wiley's attorney argues because he exhausted reasonable means to escape, he was entitled to use deadly force in self-defense. Prosecutors say Wiley and his cohorts plotted for several days before entering "She's a Pistol", which specializes in providing personal protection items for women. The men apparently thought Becky Bieker was working alone when they pointed a gun at her and started shouting demands. They punched her, breaking her nose. One of the men jumped over the counter to stuff a backpack with guns. They didn't see Jon Bieker in the back room. Surveillance video captured the entire gun battle inside the store. As Becky falls to the floor, Jon bursts from the back firing his weapon. Jon managed to shoot all three of the suspects. One of the injured suspects fled along with the getaway driver. Wiley remained in the store and continued to exchange gunfire with Jon, who was killed when a bullet pierced his aorta. Becky regained her composure and emptied her weapon into Wiley, critically injuring him. Prosecutors said Wiley, who has admitted robbing the store, was identified on the surveillance tape as the man who killed Jon. His co-defendants, Hakeem Malik, Londro Patterson and Niquan Midgyett, have pleaded not guilty and will stand trial on charges that include first-degree murder. Police believe the men were also behind a string of convenience store armed robberies in the area in the weeks before the shootout, reported KCTV-TV. Wiley's defense lawyers responded by filing the bombshell motion that he was "entitled to use deadly force" against the Biekers. The claim reads in part: “… Wiley, withdrew from any physical confrontation with the Biekers and he specifically communicated his intent to surrender to Jon Bieker. Despite that communication, Mr. Bieker continued to advance and/or fire upon the defendant and the codefendants. The defendant was shot in the spine and paralyzed, herefore unable to further escape. As such, the defendant was entitled to use force to protect himself."
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ric Re: Laser printer for home business Dear Webby, Tech question: can you recommend a color laser printer (wireless)for home/small bussiness? And nor break the bank? Thank you, Ric Dear Ric I would recommend the DELL C1760nw It has WiFi and color and is good for 30,000 pages per month. It sells for $199, plus shipping. DELL C1760nw If quality is not important, and if you don't mind toner cost to be more than the printer, check out your local Staples store and see what they got on Special. Last time I was there they had a Brother color laser for $149, and the toner for it $249. Keep in mind, printers usually ship with near empty toner cartridges, and you will need new ones very soon. If you have an old Multi-Function ink squirter, don't heave it into the dumpster. Most likely you can use the scanner and fax function for another ten years. Have FUN!

Scientists have proven that by simply cooking your rice with some coconut oil, it changes the rice's digestible starch to indigestible starch, which prevents much of the rice from being metabolized into glucose, cutting the calories by about 60%. That's huge! The only difference is, you must let it sit in the fridge before you eat it. Here's what you need: 1 cup white rice 2 tsp. coconut oil 1 3/4 cups water Bring water to a boil in a pot. Add coconut oil and rice to pot. Cover, lower heat, and cook for 20 to 25 minutes. Let rice cool, then chill in the fridge for at least 12 hours. Reheat before serving.

_____________________________________________________ The student - not necessarily a well-prepared student - sat in his life science classroom staring at a question on the final exam paper. The question directed: "Give four advantages of breast milk." What to write? He sighed, and began to scribble whatever came into his head, hoping for the best: 1. No need to boil. 2. Cats can't steal it. 3. Available whenever necessary. Um. So far so good - maybe. But the exam demanded a four-part answer. Again, what to write? Once more he sighed. He frowned. He scowled. Then sighed again. But suddenly, he brightened. He grabbed his pen, and triumphantly he scribbled his definitive answer: 4. Available in attractive containers. ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Imelda reported for her University PHD final examination which consists of "yes/no" type questions. She takes her seat in the examination hall, stares at the question paper for five minutes, and then in a fit of inspiration takes her purse out, removes a coin and starts tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet - Yes for Heads and No for Tails. Within half an hour she is all done whereas the rest of the class is sweating it out. During the last few minutes, she is seen desperately throwing the coin, swearing and sweating. The moderator, alarmed, approaches her and asks what is going on. "I finished the exam in half and hour. But, she says, I am rechecking my answers, and half of them are wrong !" ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Roland for this one: Andy Rooney On Cripes: "My wife's from the Midwest. Very nice people there. Very wholesome. They use words like 'Cripes'. 'For Cripe's sake.' Who would that be, Jesus Cripes? The son of 'Gosh' of the church of 'Holy Moly'? I'm not making fun of it. You think I wanna burn in 'Heck'?" ____________________________________________________
