At one point he asked, "What's that?" The doctor explained, "This is an anaesthetic. After he gets this he won't know a thing." "Save your time, Doc," Pop explained, "He don't know nothing now." ______________________________________________________ Gyrfalkon on top of Churchill, Manitoba, transmitter tower. ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by John Dopson, , Jacksonville, Georgia Georgia Mayor Arrested in Cop Car, Charged With Impersonating Officer and DUI The mayor of a tiny Georgia town was charged with impersonating an officer after he was stopped by sheriff's deputies while driving a marked police car something he does routinely the sheriff said Tuesday. John Dopson, mayor of Jacksonville, population 140, was driving a Jacksonville police cruiser when he was pulled over Monday by Telfair County deputies, the sheriff's office said in a statement. Dopson refused to take blood and urine tests, "indicating the reason for his refusal was because he knew it would show positive for 'weed,'" according to the statement. In addition to the impersonation charge, he was charged with driving under the influence of drugs. The sheriff's office said it had been investigating the mayor for some time "in response to numerous complaints related to the daily personal use of a marked and equipped City of Jacksonville patrol car by an individual who possesses no law enforcement authority." Dopson "can be observed daily operating a marked and equipped Jacksonville GA patrol car," the sheriff's office said, often "with its blue lights activated." Dopson was appointed mayor late last year even though he has been awaiting trial since last March on a felony aggravated assault charge, according to state court records. The Associated Press reported that Dopson was accused of pointing a gun at another man in an incident that was recorded on video. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dani Re: Firefox update problem Dear Webby I need your help once again. I ad Mozilla Firefox as my browser and it wasn't working properly, so I removed it and tried re-installing it. Now my virus protection tells me that Mozilla Firefox is Unsafe. I was trying to download from Mozilla's webpage. If it was safe before why would it be unsafe now. Any help you can give me will be appreciated as always. Dani Dear Dani What do you use for virus protection? I just did a big update on 30 odd things, including FF. McAfee did not protest at all. Actually, it was McAfee, that reminded me to do all those updates. A quick check just now shows that my FF is up to date. 44.0.2 So the download did work OK. Either you were trying to get FF from an illegitimate source, or your anti-virus is not working right. Or both. The legitimate download site for Firefox is: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ If you have country flags turned on, you should see a US flag in the address bar. If you see an Arab or Turkmenistan or Nigerian flag, get outa there in a hurry! Use the link I gave you, and NONE other! Don't use links provided by your already compromised browser. I would suggest that you download and install Chrome or Opera or Safari, and use those to download the legitimate FireFox. Have FUN!

"Coming up on the right, you can see the Meteor Crater, which is a major tourist attraction in northern Arizona. It was formed a Million years ago when a lump of nickel and iron, roughly 150 feet in diameter and weighing 300,000 tons, struck the earth at about 40,000 miles an hour, scattering white-hot debris for miles in every direction. The hole measures nearly a mile across and is 570 feet deep." From the cabin, a passenger was heard to exclaim, "Wow! It just missed the freeway!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Split Pea Soup for Busy Mothers By Judy Pariser S. 85 70 I have been making this recipe for years, and it is always good. It will thicken the next day, so you can thin it out with a little water or broth if you choose to. Approximate Time: 3-4 hours conventionally, 8-10 hours slow-cooked. Yield: 10 to 12 cups Ingredients: 1 lb split peas 1 onion, chopped or sliced 3-6 carrots, depending on how much carrot taste you want (I used 3) 2-3 stalks celery 1 bay leaf 1-2 clove garlic, minced (I use two), or equivalent of garlic powder 1/4 tsp thyme 8-10 cups water (I use 9) 1/2 tsp salt (optional) dash cayenne pepper, optional (I use red pepper flakes) Variations 2 cups chicken stock 1 ham bone 1/4 lb salt pork or bacon leftover ham leftover turkey Steps: Rinse over the split peas. Put ingredients into a large kettle or 5 quart or larger slow cooker. Simmer, covered in the pot 3-4 hours. If you are using the slow cooker, cook 8-10 hours on low (I do this), or 3-4 hours on high. Remove the bay leaf. If you are using meat, remove from pot and separate any meat from the bones. Set aside. Blend the soup (I use an immersion blender). Return the meat bits into the soup. You may add milk to this soup if desired, to cool it off. Source: Whole Foods for the Whole Family, this cookbook is still available from La Leche League. It has excellent recipes that are high in nutritional value, and most of them are economical as well. ______________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Just before a soldier made his first parachute jump, his sergeant reminded him, "Count to ten and pull the first rip cord. If it snarls, pull the second rip cord for the auxiliary chute. After you land, our truck will pick you up." The paratrooper took a deep breath and jumped. He counted to ten, and pulled the first cord. Nothing happened. He pulled the second cord. Again, nothing happened. As he careened crazily earthward, he said to himself: "Man. Nothing goes right. I'll bet that truck won't be there either!" TWACK he bombed into a huge manure pile. Just as he burrowed his way out and saw daylight again, the head of his buddy popped out of the manure a few feet away and in his slow Texan drawl sang out: "...an one ahs TAN!" ____________________________________________________ Barbie, a waitress, decided to put her matchmaking skills to the test with our mutual friend Mike. She figured that Sandy, another friend who seemed to have much in common with Mike, would be an ideal date. One day Mike came into the restaurant when Sandy was also there. Barbie dragged Mike over to Sandy's table and introduced the two. Then she watched as Mike put his arm around the young woman and said in his best mock-seductive voice, "Helloooo, Sandy. What's a nice girl like you doing in a place like this?" "You guys know each other?" Barbie asked. "We sure do," said Mike. "She's my sister." ____________________________________________________
