______________________________________________________ Artur absolutely hated his wife Susan's dog decided to get rid of him one day by driving him 20 blocks from his home and leaving him at the park. As he was getting home, the dog was walking up the driveway. The next day, he decided to drive the dog 40 blocks away and the same again. Driving back up his driveway, there was the dog! He kept taking the dog further and further and the darn dog would always beat him home. At last, he decided to drive a few miles away, turn right, then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right until he reached what he thought was a safe distance from his home and left the dog there. Hours later, the Artur called home to Susan: "Susan, is the dog there?" "Yes", the Susan answered..."why do you ask?" Frustrated, Artur answered: "Send him to fetch me. I'm lost and need directions!" ______________________________________________________ From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kimberly Hammond, 48, Parkersburg, Washington County, Ohio Ohio woman did not get a Valentines day gift from her husband. So she ttook a bat and beat him unconcious. Kept beating him until he regained conciousness. An Ohio woman assaulted her husband during an argument because he did not buy her a Valentine’s Day gift, deputies told WTAP. Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a home just outside Parkersburg, Ohio around 11 a.m. Sunday and found a man with several injuries. The man told deputies his wife, Kimberly Hammond, 46, had been drinking and began to hit and scratch his face during a verbal altercation. She then allegedly grabbed a mini baseball bat and struck him in the back of the head, knocking him unconscious. Hammond continued to attack her husband as he regained consciousness, according to deputies. According to deputies, Hammond said she was upset because her husband did not buy her a gift on Valentine’s Day. Hammond admitted to drinking and blew a .221 during a breathalyzer test. She was arrested for felonious assault and domestic violence, according to deputies. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Harvey W. Re: Priority on new computer Dear Webby We are going to take the plunge and buy a computer. We have been using our daughter's, but she and her hubby are moving out to a place of their own. Unfortunately we can't afford a fully decked out dream machine and have to cut corners on something. Which corner should we cut short, and which item should get priority? Harvey Dear Harvey Priority is the monitor. You can always get more RAM or a faster processor, but you can't get new eyes. Even a big, beautiful 24 inch screen costs less than a new pair of glasses. If computer dealers had the same mark-ups as Optometrists, a monitor would cost more than a car. Second highest priority, after you have chosen the biggest and sharpest monitor, is RAM. Get as much as you can. Hard drive and processor speed are irrelevant for casual home use. They only count when the kids brag on the school bus. Have FUN!

They are moist, tasty and healthy. They freeze well for future meals, and go great in lunch boxes. Approximate Time: 30 minutes Yield: 8-10 salmon cakes Ingredients: 1 can (14 3/4 oz) salmon, drained with skin and bones removed 1 1/2 cup soft whole wheat bread crumbs (I used the heel and one slice of bread) 1/2 cup sweet red pepper, chopped fine 1/2 cup egg substitute (I used 2 eggs) 3 green onions, thinly sliced (I used 1/2 an onion, finely chopped) 1/4 cup celery, chopped fine 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, minced (I used a small amount of dried) 3 Tbsp mayonnaise 1 Tbsp lemon juice 1 garlic clove, minced a few dashes hot pepper sauce, more if desired Sauce 2 Tbsp mayonnaise 1/4 tsp capers, drained 1/4 tsp dried dill weed a dash of lemon juice Steps: In a large bowl combine the first 11 ingredients. Spray muffin tins with cooking spray. Use 1/3 cup salmon mixture for each muffin tin. (The recipe says 8, but I filled 10 muffin tins). Put water in any unfilled tins. Bake at 425°F for 10-15 minutes, or until a thermometer reads 160°F. While the cakes are baking, combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Serve the cakes with some sauce on the top. Nutritional Facts: 2 salmon cakes with 1 1/2 teaspoons of sauce = 266 calories, 9 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 48 mg cholesterol, 914 mg sodium, 17 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 28 g protein. Source: Taste of Home newsletter You can use that recipe also with canned tuna. Rinse it well with lemon water. And modify the recipe slightly by adding very finely chopped onion. Have FUN!

He got restless, so his mother dug into her voluminous purse and found him a pad and pencil and suggested he mark down every time the preacher said the word "and." After a while, he grew bored, and she asked, "Do you want to listen for a different word?" "Yes," he said, none too quietly, "I want to hear 'AMEN!!!'." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Scott and Peter had applied for jobs at a large company and had to take an intelligence test. They each found the test a breeze, except that they admitted to being momentarily stumped by the final question: "Name a 14 letter word for someone in charge of a plant." "How did you answer that last one?" asked Scott. "I was a bit puzzled at first, but then I thought of Superintendent." "I think I got it right too," said Pete, "but I wrote down Horticulturist." ____________________________________________________ Before his daring escape from prison, an infamous criminal had been photographed from four different angles. The FBI sent copies of the pictures to police chiefs all across the land, with orders to notify Washington the moment an arrest was made. The next day, the Bureau received a faxed reply from the ambitious sheriff of a small Alabama town: "PICTURES RECEIVED. ALL FOUR SHOT DEAD WHILE RESISTING ARREST." ____________________________________________________
