Today's Bonehead Award goes to a Vero Beach man arrested after he attempted jail break-in, becam entangled in razor wire Details at Boneheads ______________________________________________________ Today, December 17, in 1903 The Panama Canal Zone was acquired 'in perpetuity' by the U.S. for an annual rent. History ______________________________________________________ You have to know how to accept rejection and reject acceptance. --- Ray Bradbury (1920 - ) "The income tax has made more liars out of the American people than golf has. Even when you make a tax form out on the level, you don't know when it's through if you are a crook or a martyr." ---- Will Rogers "Blessed are the young, for they shall inherit the national debt." --- Herbert Hoover ______________________________________________________ Overheard in the bank today: A few ladies were discussing the newsreport about the hormone pills for women in or after menopause claiming that the hormones could lead to 8 more heart attacks in 10 000 people. Most figured that 8 in 10 000 was so small a number that it was probably due to some fluke ot error, and only one of them seemed inclined to consider giving up the estrogen pills. Then the old country doctor, who had just come in, interrupted in her usual gruff and surly manner. She said: "8 in 10 000 is silly! If 10 000 stop using the hormone pills, you'll see 8000 divorces and 800 murders! 8 Heart attacks. Those I can deal with nowadays, but not 10 000 grouchy dingbats!" Everybody cracked up laughing, especially because she has a reputation for being quite a grouch. ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ The judge read the charges, then asked, "Are you the defendant in this case?" "No sir, your honor, sir," replied Arthur, "I've got a lawyer to do the defendin'. I'm the person who done it." ______________________________________________________ One day, a guy was driving with his four-year-old daughter and beeped his car horn by mistake. She turned and looked at him for an explanation. He said, "I did that by accident." She said, "I know that, daddy." He said, "How did you know?" The girl said, "Because you didn't yell, 'JERK,' after you honked." ______________________________________________________ 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 Patrick Rempe, 24, Vero Beach, Florida
Vero Beach man arrested after he attempted jail break-in, becam entangled in razor wire A man high on Flakka rammed the fence at the Indian River County Jail and attempted to scale the fence, but became stuck at the top, authorities said. A man high on a synthetic stimulant rammed the fence at the Indian River County Jail and became entangled in razor wire when he attempted to scale the fence early Tuesday, the Indian River County Sheriff's Office said. Patrick Rempe, 24, of the 2200 block of 53rd Avenue, Vero Beach, had to be assisted out of the wire by deputies and paramedics before he was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and several other charges. Rempe had been using the drug Flakka, Flowers said. "The people who are on this drug lose control of themselves," Flowers said. Flakka is a synthetic drug that has also been compared to cocaine and methamphetamine, law enforcement officials said. It causes hallucinations and euphoria for its users, but can also cause paranoia, confusion and psychosis. The Sheriff's Office estimates the jail sustained at least $5,000 worth damage to the doors and the fence. "The good thing is, we were never compromised," Flowers said. Even if Rempe had not been entangled in the wire, he would have had to scale a second fence, also topped with razor wire, before reaching the jail building, which would have been locked, Flowers said. About 4:15 a.m. Tuesday, Rempe rammed his 2002 Toyota into the front doors of Building C, barely missing a deputy who was outside the jail. The glass on the doors shattered, but the doors held up, Flowers said. Rempe then drove at a high rate of speed and rammed into the fence outside of building E, Flowers said. With the fence tipping slightly toward the building, Rempe tried to scale it and became stuck. Rempe spit on one of the deputies after being removed, Flowers said. Rempe was treated at Indian River Medical Center before he was booked into the jail. He told deputies he just wanted to visit friends who were in the jail. Rempe was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, battery on a law enforcement officer, three counts of felony criminal mischief, leaving the scene of a crash with property damage and driving under the influence.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Mary M Re: Go back to W7 Dear Webby, My granddaughter was on my desk top and the window's 10 came up. I had been ignoring it. I like my 7 just fine and she downloaded W10 plus the 10 Norton. HELP !! I need to get rid of this and go back to 7. I know you had told how to do this a while back but I wasn't planning on getting 10. Thank you & Merry Christmas !! Mary Dear Mary Yes, I agree it is time to get rid of that granddaughter. She is evil! First UNistall Norton. Then, if it has been less than a month since she downgraded to Windows 10, you can go back to your previous version of Windows by going to Settings > Update & security > Recovery and selecting Go back to Windows 7. That should do it. You may have to re-Install Mcafee and MalwareBytes afterwards. With that link you can currently get the 2016 McAfee at 50% off. Have FUN! DearWebby Working as a secretary at an international airport, my sister had an office adjacent to where security temporarily holds suspects. One day security officers were questioning a man when they were suddenly called away on another emergency. To the horror of my sister and her colleagues, the man was left alone in the unlocked room. After a few minutes, the door opened, and he began to walk out. Summoning up her courage, one of the secretaries barked, "Get back in there, and don't come out until you're told!" The man scuttled back inside and slammed the door. When the security people returned, the woman reported what had happened. Without a word, an officer walked into the room and released one very frightened telephone repairman. ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Mushroom and Cheese Orzo Risotto People tend to get intimidated by the thought of making risotto. I can assure you, this version is a super easy method that results in a very elegant, delicious dish. Approximate Time: 20 minutes Yield: 4 servings Ingredients: 2 tsp oil 3/4 cup sliced or chopped mushrooms 1/4 cup chopped onions 2 cloves minced garlic 2 cups dried orzo pasta 3 cups chicken broth 1/3 cup any type of cheese (I used aged cheddar here) salt and pepper to taste 1 Tbsp butter Steps: Add oil to frying pan over high heat. Cook mushrooms, onions and garlic until browned, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add dried orzo. Stir often until pasta is light golden brown, a few minutes. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer. Stirring often. It will take about 8 minutes or so until orzo is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. If its too thick or dry, add a bit of water at a time until you reach desired consistency. If too wet, cook a bit longer. Turn off heat then drop in cheese, butter, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir until cheese melts. I'm getting hungry just writing this! Enjoy! By attosa [147] ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ An efficiency expert concluded his lecture with a note of caution. "You need to be careful about trying these techniques at home." "Why?" asked somebody from the audience. "I watched my wife's routine at breakfast for years," the expert explained. "She made lots of trips between the refrigerator, stove, table and cabinets, often carrying a single item at a time. One day I told her, 'Why don't you try carrying several things at once?'" "Did it save time?" the guy in the audience asked. "Actually, yes," replied the expert. "It used to take her 20 minutes to make breakfast. ........ Now I do it in seven." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ A few housewives were sitting around the table talking, and the subject turned to their husbands. One lady said "My husband just won't go to church with me, I think he's going to go to Hell." This led to talk around the table and it was generally agreed that, for one reason or another, all the husbands were going to end up in Hell. So, then the housewives started speculating about themselves. One woman said "I try to be good - I'm sure I'll make it to Heaven." One after the other, and all at the sime time, as is common in these gatherings, they enumerated their good deeds and their sufferings and reasons why they would surely go to heaven. Then they noticed that one of the ladies wasn't saying anything. They looked at her and said "You're always soo a kind and good, surely you're going to Heaven?" "Not me," she says, "Tonight I am going to go burn down a church or two. Maybe a rectory too." They were shocked and asked "Why??" "Well, none of the men I like are going to go to heaven. I am just going to make sure I won't either". ____________________________________________________ A lady from Chicago was visiting New York City. Her hostess was determined to make the Midwesterner feel cheap and unimportant. "My dear," said the New York matron snobbishly, "here in the East we think breeding is everything." The lady from the Midwest replied. "Out where I come from we think it's fun, too, but we try to have a few other interests as well." ____________________________________________________
