Yes, I know that you can NOT vote  for "Daily Thrifty Fun" 
or ANY of the newsletters. 

Voting at the Ezinefinder does not work.
They are stuck in 2014, and nobody  there at Ezinefinder 
is competent enough to switch it to 2016.
I don't know what happened to Lewis.

They are NOT on any Webby server, they are on some Apple 
or Mac on the Westcoast, and there is nothing I can do 
about it. They are too snooty to answer me. 

You can try writing to them and see if you get a response.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Stacy Lynn Hooks, 38, Sebring, Floriduh. Floriduh teacher, whose 14 year old se partner had naked pictures of her all over his phone. A Florida middle school teacher had sex five times with a 14-year-old boy she taught and appeared naked in photos on his cell phone, police said Friday. Stacy Lynn Hooks, 38, admitted she had intercourse with her student three times and engaged in oral sex twice in their five encounters, according to a police report cited by Highlands Today. Investigators said they discovered two nude pictures of her and a collage of her butt on the boy’s phone. Hooks was arrested Thursday and charged with lewd battery, electronic 6transmission of material harmful to a minor and travelling to meet a minor to engage in unlawful sexual conduct. Hooks is a 15-year veteran elementary and middle school teacher from Sebring, which is about 85 miles southeast of Tampa. She has taught since 2012 at Hill-Gustat Middle School, where the website lists her as a science teacher. Officials with the School Board of Highlands County placed her on administrative leave ahead of a Tuesday vote on whether to suspend her without pay and an investigation that could lead to her firing, the local newspaper reported. Investigators with the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office received word Monday of inappropriate contact between her and a middle school student. Deputies said she revealed in an interview Thursday that the pair struck up a relationship in May 2015 and last had sex Feb. 5. Hooks was incarcerated on a $625,000 bond after her arrest. $625,000 bond for a teacher! That is a jail sentence without court. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Birga Re: Professional size hard drive Dear Webby what do they mean with 'professional size hard drive' ? Is that a really huge harddrive? Birga Dear Birga No, quite the opposite. Beginners clutter up their hard drives with all kinds of stuff that they some day want to try. For that they need huge drives. Since beginners usually don't back up, defrag or scan anyway, big drives are OK for them. Professionals keep their drives clean and lean so that they can back up quickly, and so that they can defrag or scan during a coffee break. For that reason pros usually try to get the smallest and fastest drives they can for their working machines. For back-up purposes size is not critical. What is important there is that the back-up drive is either a removable or a portable drive so that it can be stored at a different location that would not be affected if there is a burglary, fire or other disaster at the location of the working machine. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ A bride called to make a change to her wedding registry. It is common, almost expected, that a bride will change some- thing on her registry at least once (dishes, color of towels, etc.). The Customer Service Rep told her that J.C. Penney would be happy to make the change. He asked if the bride wanted to change the dishes or the linens or the crystal or... The bride said, "No, no, keep all the important stuff the same. I just want to change the name of the groom." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Growing Vegetables in Hanging Baskets By EllenB 799 1 Many veggies can be grown in hanging baskets. Some people like to refer to this as "minigardening". The best candidates are vegetables with compact or sprawling growth habits like squash, mini peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, runner or pole beans, peas, and cucumbers. Mini, compact, or dwarf varieties tend to work best because the fruits are smaller (and lighter) and less apt to grow too heavy for the plant. You can certainly use up your "full-sized" seeds; just expect to see diminished returns in fruit size and overall production. Strawberries, assorted greens, and a variety of herbs can also be grown successfully in hanging baskets. Alone or mixed in with a few edible flowers (like nasturtiums), a hanging basket full of cascading vegetables is both colorful and practical. Here are a few tips to keep in mind: Make sure your basket is large enough to accommodate the roots of whatever type of vegetable you decide to grow. Use the deepest, widest baskets you can and fill them with a lightweight potting mix (regular garden soil will be too heavy). Use a soil retention product and solid-style baskets to help prevent the soil from drying out too quickly. Check moisture levels daily-twice a day during extreme heat. Fertilize veggies regularly using a slow release organic fertilizer or compost tea. Baskets should hang in a location that receives at least 6 hours of sun per day. Give baskets a quarter to a half turn once each week to encourage even growth. Avoid hanging your baskets too high. Remember you will need to access them daily. ______________________________________________________

When she finally found the right road, she asked her husband, "Why didn't you tell me I was lost?" "I thought you knew where you were going," he replied. "You always know where we're going when I'm driving." ____________________________________________________ Although born to a Catholic family, Chester had always wanted to be Jewish. As a senior in college, he decided to take the plunge and go through the formal conversion process. He studied Judaism all semester. Finally, he felt he was ready to take the test and complete the conversion. On the appointed day, he arrived at the Rabbi's office, ready to begin. The Rabbi said, "I'm sorry, but before I give you the test, I must discuss my fee, It's $5,000." "$5,000!" exclaimed Chester, "That's a lot of money. How about $500?" "Congratulations, you pass." said the Rabbi. ____________________________________________________
