______________________________________________________ reported by Sr Anna An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joshua James, Jupiter, Floriduh Assault with a deadly weapon: Florida man charged with throwing alligator into Wendy’s Authorities in Florida have arrested a man accused of throwing a live alligator through a restaurant’s drive-through window. Investigators identified Joshua James, of Jupiter, Fla., as the man who tossed the 3 1/2-foot reptile into a Wendy’s last fall, according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission incident report. He faces three charges related to the incident: Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon; unlawful sale, possession or transporting of an alligator; and petty theft. James, 24, was taken into custody and booked into the Palm Beach County Detention Center on Monday, as first reported by NBC affiliate WPTV. The driver, wearing a backwards baseball hat, arrived at the drive-through window to receive a large drink just before 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 11, according to the report’s summary of surveillance footage. “While the attendant has her back to the window and is at her register, the male driver reaches across the inside of his vehicle in the passenger area and throws an alligator from his vehicle into the drive through window,” the report reads. A photograph in the report shows the American Alligator flat with its legs splayed on the fast food restaurant’s kitchen floor. An officer responding to the incident captured the alligator, taped its jaws shut “for safety” and released it into a nearby canal, according to the report. I would hope he cut the duck tape before dumping the baby gator into the canal! ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Punk Re: Changing from GIF to JPG Dear Webby I hope you are doing well. You often mention changing pictures (and maybe documents as well) from PNG or PSP or PSD format, then save as a JPG or GIF. How do you change to or from JPG . I Have no idea how to change these. And I'm needing specific details if possible. I sometimes have some pictures that need to be changed Thank you for all the info you share as well as the good laughs on you page. Sincerely, Punk Dear Punk Don't try to change them with the file explorer. That would wreck them. Open the picture with any graphics program. There are many hundreds of them, most of them free. The biggest one is GIMP (free) Second biggest one is Photoshop (not free) Third biggest one is Corell (not free) and so on. There is even one included in Windows. Just pick any one of them, crop and resize the picture to the clipping and size you want, mess with contrast and brightness if needed, then save AS, and in the saving process select the format. That's all there is to it. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Don't worry about the world coming to an end today.

_____________________________________________________ On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle. One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, "What time is it?" The tower responded, "Who is calling?" The aircraft replied, "What difference does it make?" The tower replied, "It makes a lot of difference. If it is an American Airlines Flight, it is 3 o'clock. If it is an Air Force, it is 1500 hours. If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells. If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3. If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it's Thursday afternoon. If it is Coast Guard, it's still light outside. If it's a Cessna: It's four hours of golfing light left. If it's a Piper: Pub's open." ___________________________________________________
And he waited such a long time!
____________________________________________________ The CIA lost track of one of its agents, and called in one of their top spy hunters. The CIA boss says, "All I can tell you is that his name is Murphy and that he's somewhere in Ireland. If you think you've located him, tell him the code words, 'The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning.' If it's really him, he'll answer, 'Yes, and for mist at noon as well.'" So the spy hunter goes to Ireland and stops in a bar in Dublin. He says to the bartender: "Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for a guy named Murphy." The bartender replies, "You're going to have to be more specific because, around here, there are lots of guys named Murphy. There's Murphy the Baker, who runs the pastry shop on the next block. There's Murphy the Banker, who's president of our local savings bank. There's Murphy the Blacksmith, who works at the stables. And, as a matter of fact, my name is Murphy, too." Hearing this, the spy hunter figures he might as well try the code words on the bartender, so he says, "The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning." The bartender replies, "Oh, you're looking for Murphy the Spy. He used to live on the top floor in 205, right down the street on the left, but he went into hiding. " No more was forthcoming from the bartender until the spyhunter paid for a round. "It's going to be misty around noon as well." ____________________________________________________ "Wow, man," Timmy said. "God parted the Red Sea and let all His people through on dry ground!" "Sorry," said the 'biblical' scholar. "But that wasn't the Red Sea; it was the Reed Sea. And its water is only about 1 foot deep. No miracle was involved." "Oh," said Timmy. Then, reading on a little more, he said, "Wow, man! What a miracle! God drowned all those Egyptians in 1 foot of water!" ____________________________________________________
