______________________________________________________ My job as a land surveyor took me to a golf course that was expanding to 18 holes. Using a machete to clear thick brush in an area I was mapping, I came upon a golf club that an irate player must have tossed away. It was in good condition, so I picked it up and continued on. When I broke out of the brush onto a putting green, two golfers stared at me in awe. I had a machete in one hand, a golf club in the other, and behind me was a clear-cut swath over 100 yards long. "There," said one of the golfers, "is a guy who hates to lose his ball!" ______________________________________________________ Greenland ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jovaughn Walker, 21, Deerfield Beach, Floriduh Jovaughn Walker of Deerfield Beach, Florida attacks clerk at flea market with a samurai sword, beats an 81 year old man at a gas station and carjacks a car in the middle of an intersection. All before noon on Sunday. The man taken into custody in connection with an attack on a Swap Shop clerk with a 3-foot samurai sword and the assault of an 81-year-old customer in a gas station has been identified as Jovaughn Walker. The 21-year-old Deerfield Beach resident faces charges of attempted murder, aggravated battery, carjacking and possession of cannabis after a Sunday morning of mayhem that sent two people to the hospital for treatment of cuts and lacerations, according to Lauderhill police. "I have seen the [surveillance] video tapes, and these attacks seem to have come out of the blue," said Maj. Rick Rocco. "It doesn't look like he had any argument or confrontation. All of a sudden, he just snapped." Questioning by detectives after he was chased around the Swap Shop flea market and detained by several witnesses to the attack, Walker "began making statements about seeing poltergeist and wanting to kill all that was evil," police said in an affidavit. The interview was suspended "due to the defendant possibly being under the influence of narcotics," police said. In Walker's pocket were two grams of suspected cannabis, police said. According to Lauderhill police and Broward Sheriff's deputies, Walker began his crime spree early Sunday in Deerfield Beach when he carjacked a 2001 Ford Ranger from a man stopped at the intersection of Southwest Natura Boulevard and 10th Street. William Lauderback, 55, told deputies a man he later identified as Walker crawled into the vehicle through a open passenger side window, put him in a headlock and pushed him out the driver's side door. Walker then drove off in the truck, Lauderback told deputies, but not before twice driving back on the wrong side of Southwest Natura Boulevard in what he thought was an attempt to run him down. At 10:05 a.m., Lauderhill police said, Walker showed up at the Shell station at 1901 N. State Road 7 in the stolen Ford Ranger. There a customer identified as Douglas Brochet told investigators he was pumping gas into his car when he noticed Walker, wearing a red hat, staring at him. When Brochet went inside the station, Walker followed and began striking him in the head with a metal rod, part of a shelf support, he found inside, police said. On the surveillance video a woman identified by police as Brochet's wife can be seen trying to push Walker away from her husband. Walker fled in the truck, only to appear about an hour later at the Swap Shop, 3291 W. Sunrise Blvd. He entered a store selling knives, swords and scissors and pulled the sword from a display, police said. The clerk, identified as Parmjit Singh, 49, an employee of a nearby shop filling in temporarily for the owner, told police that Walker "unsheathed the sword and began looking at [the clerk] strangely" before suddenly chasing him around the shop. "[The clerk] tried to take refuge in a neighboring business, but the defendant caught up" to him and "began swinging the sword profusely, striking [the clerk] at least eight times all over [his] body." Singh fell to the ground, police said, and sustained a laceration to his left hand when he tried to protect himself from the blows. Singh told police he thought Walker was "trying to kill, due to the fact that [he] was being struck with such force numerous times with the sword." Rocco praised bystanders who chased after Walker and held him in the Swap Shop until police arrived. "They were a big help" said Rocco. "They all came together to detain him. Who knows what might have happened if they hadn't." Both men injured in the assaults were treated at local hospitals and released. Brochet had several lacerations to his forehead and ear that took 18 stitches to close, police said. Walker was to appear in court Monday, but his first appearance was rescheduled because of medical issues, court officials said. He is being held without bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Edith Re: Why alternate desktops? Dear Webby What is the reason for alternate desktops? Is that for different moods or what? Edith Dear Edith That is for households with different members. For example, YOUR desktop might have a picture of a cathedral as the background, and all the icons looking like color coded angels. Perfectly safe if a member of your bible study group walks in. Your hubby might have a Major Hooters calendar picture as the background, and his icons could be various hooters, ahem owls. Your son's theme could be hot cars, and your daughter's theme could be fashion. Then depending on who walks up the driveway, you hit CTRL SHIFT 1 (for your saintly theme) CTRL SHIFT 3 (for your son's them. And so on. If you are the only one using that computer, you could still use that concept, if you are overloaded with icons. You can have one desktop with all your recipe shortcuts, another one with the churchly stuff, another one with fashion links, and one with diet links. That concept cleans up the desktop because you have only the icons from one theme showing. Have FUN!

Here's how to easily make your own at home without having to deal with yeast. Approximate Time: 10 minutes + 30 minutes dough rest time Yield: 6 pita pocketsYeast Free Pita Bread Ingredients: 1 1/4 cup flour (I used all purpose, but you can mix it up.) 1/2 tsp salt 2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp baking soda 2 Tbsp yogurt 1 Tbsp oil 1/4 cup warm water extra flour for rolling Steps: In large bowl, whisk the flour, salt, baking powder and soda. Mix in yogurt and oil. Add warm water and mix for a couple minutes until a sticky dough forms. Cover and let sit for 30 minutes. Uncover and touch. If it sticks to your finger like this, add some flour and knead thoroughly until it no longer sticks. I had to add two tablespoons here. Place on a surface where you can roll it out on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a log shape. Slice into six equal sections. Roll each into a ball then flatten into about a 6 to 7 inch round. Heat a skillet over high heat (no oil necessary). Once hot, place a rolled piece of on the skillet. Immediately over with a lid and cook for 1 to 2 minutes and nicely browned. Flip over and cook the other side for 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat with rest of dough. The trick to getting a good pocket inside is using high heat and making sure you cover them while cooking. Slice the pita bread in half, open the pocket, and fill with meats, veggies, or both. Enjoy! ______________________________________________________

She called the court clerk. "I received a jury duty summons, but I have an age exemption." The clerk said, "Ma'am, you need to fill out an exemption form to be granted the exemption." "I did that last year." "Ma'am, you have to do it every year." "Why? I know I am getting better every year, but I am not getting younger just yet." ____________________________________________________ A student walked into our library area and glanced at the encyclopedia volumes stacked on a bookshelf.
