Today's Bonehead Award goes to an Ohio woman arrested after eating cereal during high speed chase Details at Boneheads ______________________________________________________ Today, December 15, in 2000 - New York Senator-elect Hillary Rodham Clinton agreed to accept an $8 million book deal with Simon & Schuster. The book was to be about her eight years in the White House. History ______________________________________________________ A good listener is usually thinking about something else. --- Kin Hubbard (1868 - 1930) The difference between truth and fiction: fiction has to make sense. --Mark Twain ______________________________________________________ During a service at an old synagogue in Eastern Europe, when the Shema prayer was said, half the congregants stood up and half remained sitting. The half that was seated started yelling at those standing to sit down, and the ones standing yelled at the ones sitting to stand up. The rabbi, learned as he was in the Law and commentaries, didn't know what to do. His congregation suggested that he consult a house-bound 98 year old man, who was one of the original founders of their temple. The rabbi hoped the elderly man would be able to tell him what the actual temple tradition was, so he went to the nursing home with a representative of each faction of the congregation. The one whose followers stood during Shema said to the old man, "Is the tradition to stand during this prayer?" The old man answered, "No, that is not the tradition." The one whose followers sat asked, "Is the tradition to sit during Shema?" The old man answered, "No, that is not the tradition." Then the rabbi said to the old man, "The congregants fight all the time, yelling at each other about whether they should sit or stand." The old man interrupted, exclaiming, "THAT is the tradition!" ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ At one point in my life I had considered joining the Baptist Church. For those of you who don't know, the Baptists practice total body immersion to baptize a person. Luckily I even knew a minister in that faith, having once dated his daughter, and I asked him if he would consider performing the service. He paused a minute or two, gave me a long thoughtful look and said, "Yes,....I could do it, if you're serious about this. However, just a quick dipping won't do it for you. We'll have to find a deep place to anchor you overnight." ______________________________________________________ A second grader came home from school and said to her mother, "Mom, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The mother, more that a little surprised, asked fearfully, "That's interesting. How do you make babies?" "It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'." ______________________________________________________ Heirloom Big Book Of Classic Christmas Stories 2nd Edition with more stories and pictures $10 instant download ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Paula Johannessen, 42, Columbus, Ohio
Ohio woman arrested after eating cereal during high speed chase A motorist who was spotted eating cereal as she drove along an Ohio interstate led police on a 30-mile chase that ended with her arrest on multiple criminal charges. According to investigators, Paula Johannessen was spotted driving erratically around 2:30 AM Tuesday on Interstate 70 outside Columbus. After pulling over Johannessen’s car, a Madison County Sheriff’s Office deputy noticed that the 42-year-old was "eating a bowl of cereal as she was driving." After Sergeant Tim Winebrenner told Johannessen that she was stopped for weaving across the road, she “stated that she had been eating her cereal and didn’t mean to go over the lines” according to a criminal complaint. During the traffic stop, Johannessen sped away from the cop, prompting a high-speed chase that moved into a neighboring county. At times driving over 100 mph, Johannessen ran over “stop sticks” that cops deployed to deflate her tires. After her shredded left front tire came off the car, Johannessen continued to drive on the rim. But when the vehicle lost its transmission and became disabled, Johannessen bolted from the auto (though she was quickly apprehended by pursuing officers). Seen above, Johannessen was charged with fleeing or eluding police, a felony, and obstructing justice, a misdemeanor. She is also facing raps for reckless driving and driving with a suspended license. Investigators have not identified Johannessen’s preferred brand of cereal. Johannessen pleaded guilty earlier this year to a felony heroin possession charge, for which she was sentenced to five years probation. A judge also suspended her driver’s license for six months and ordered, “No drugs, no alcohol, no bars.” A court filing notes that if Johannessen violates her probation, she will be sent to state prison for one year.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Alicia Re: More visible cursor Dear Webby, Lately I have had more and more trouble seeing my cursor. It has gotten worse since I added a second monitor. How can I fix that? I have Windows 7. Alicia Dear Alicia There are programs that provide different and colorful cursors, however, some of them have a "payload", malware attached or included. Unless you have Malwarebytes running, be extremely careful and read the "agreement" carefully. Before going that far, try the built in options. Click on START Control Panel Ease of Access Make the Mouse easier.... That option may be labelled slightly different, Hit that and you see some examplpe mouse pointers. Select the middle one on the right side: Large Inverting Hit APPLY and then OK. Exit the Control Panel. Now you have a cursor that changes from dark to light depending on the background. You can go a step larger if necessary, but try this size first. Have FUN! DearWebby Jeff had gone to propose to his girlfriend and returned home crying bitterly. "What happened, son?" his father asked, eagerly awaiting her response. "Did she accept?" "No, she sure didn't," sobbed Jeff. "When I told her what you advised me to say, she slapped my face and told me to get out." "Did you begin by telling her what I told you to say, what I told your mother when she accepted my proposal? 'Sweetheart, time stands still when I look in your eyes.' Did you tell her that?" asked his father. "More or less, but maybe I got it mixed up a bit," Jeff groaned. "I said, 'My Dear, you have a face that would stop a clock'!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Quick and Easy Poached Eggs Fill a pot half way with water and bring to a boil. Spray the inside of a baggie with cooking spray and break one or more eggs into the baggie. Squeeze out most of the air while zipping the baggie closed. Drop the baggie into the pot of water reducing heat to medium/low and cover. I cooked two eggs for 5 minutes but increase/decrease time according to number of eggs being poached. The baggie allows for a good visual check during cooking. When the eggs are done, remove the baggie from the water using tongs. Open baggie carefully - contents will be hot - and simply pour the eggs out. No more stringy whites clinging to the inside of the pot!

_____________________________________________________ An old fellow came into the hospital almost dying due to an infected gallbladder. After what seemed aeons of tests and preparations, the gall bladder surgeon removed the gall bladder without any fuss or problem and had the patient sent up to the post-op ward. The charge nurse there insisted that all patients be up and walking in the hall the day after surgery, to help prevent blood clots forming in the leg veins. The nurses walked the patient in the hall as ordered, even though the head nurse had to raise her mighty voice, once, and keep her stern gaze on him the first three days as two student nurses half carried, half dragged him up and down the hallway. On the fifth day they were able to walk him hangin on to only one nurse, and on the tenth day the nurse noticed that the reason he was hanging on now had not much to do with balance and support any more. After two weeks the patient was ready to go home. His family came to pick him up and thanked the surgeon profusely for what he had done for their father, telling him he was a miracle worker. The surgeon was pleased and appreciated the thanks, but told them that it was really a simple operation and that they had been lucky to get him into the hospital time. "Oh no,doctor, you don't understand," they said, "Our father hasn't walked in over ten years!" ___________________________________________________
Chuck Norris Christmas Split
____________________________________________________ Catherine, a RN, was unhappy with her job, so she submitted her resignation. She was sure she'd have no trouble finding a new position, because of the nursing shortage in her area. She e-mailed cover letters to dozens of potential employers and attached her resume to each one. Two weeks later, Catherine was dismayed and bewildered that she had not received even one request for an interview. Finally she received a message from a prospective employer that explained the reason she hadn't heard from anyone else. It read: "Your resume was not attached as stated. I do, how- ever, want to thank you for the meatloaf-lasagna recipe." ____________________________________________________ Ray had just reached his 175th birthday last week. Surrounded by reporters, he was asked, "Excuse me, sir, but how did you come to live to be 175?" Ray answered, "It was easy. I just never argue with anyone." A reporter shot back, "That's crazy. It had to be something else -- diet, meditation, or *something*. Just not arguing won't keep you alive for 175 years!" The old fella stared hard at the reporter for several seconds. Then he shrugged. "Hmmm. Maybe you're right." ____________________________________________________
