I heard him mutter, "How did you get yourself into this?" Knowing that he was assigned to a difficult class, I tried to offer moral support. "Are you okay?" I asked. "Can I help?" He lifted his head and replied, "I'll be fine as soon as I get this kid out of his locker." ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ My friend's preparations for a visit from her children in- cluded a trip to the bank. Waiting in line at the teller's window, she lamented to the middle-aged man behind her, "My children are in their 20s, and I'm still giving them money. When does it end?" "I'm not sure I'm the one to ask," the man said while glancing uncomfortably at a paper in his hand, "I'm here to deposit a check from my mother." ______________________________________________________ From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Melanie Roberts, 50, Willimantic, Connecticut Woman Robs Contracted Limo Driver After Birthday Celebration. A drunk woman upset about the limo charge for her 50th birthday celebration ended up robbing the driver at gunpoint, police said Monday. The driver was not injured, police said, and the woman was arrested. Melanie Roberts of 513 Jackson St. in Willimantic was charged with first-degree robbery, sixth-degree larceny, second-degree threatening, breach of peace and carrying firearm while under the influence. Police set her bail at $100,000, which she posted at Superior Court in Danielson, a court clerk said Monday afternoon. Her next court date was scheduled for March 18. Roberts turned 50 on Feb. 15 and was belatedly celebrating the birthday by traveling to New York City with her friends, C pl. Stanley F. Parizo said. According to Parizo, Roberts was the last person to be dropped off after the trip and began arguing with the driver over the amount she owed. She removed the keys from the limo and ran to her nearby home, where she got a 9mm pistol, he said. She returned minutes later and threatened to "shoot out" the tires of the limousine, Parizo said. She also reached inside the limo and removed the GPS and a clipboard with money and the signed contract attached to it. The limo driver called 911 early Monday, just after midnight, and told officers he had been robbed in a parking lot off of Jackson Street. Police detained her in the parking lot and arrested her. "Anytime you mix alcohol, heightened emotions and a firearm ... things can turn sideways," Parizo said. "We were fortunate that no one was injured and that no shots were fired." According to the Secretary's of State's office, Roberts runs a business called Inspiring Independence LLC from her home. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Carla Re: Drive is too big Dear Webby I had not believed you every time you ranted against big hard drives for the main drive and got a machine with a 2 TB drive. Guess who learned the hard way ! Now what ? Carla Dear Carla Download any partitioning software and partition the drive into a bunch of separate "disks". I use a small C: drive for the operating system, D: is reserved for CD/DVD, a larger E: drive for programs a larger F: drive for spreadsheets and docs and HTML, that I create and the rest, the G: drive, for stuff I download. G: is the USB hard drive, H: is the chip reader for camera chips and back-up chips. You can of course arrange that any way you like. Just make a plan beforehand and think about it, maybe even discuss it with friends. If you have a plan, the partitioning is easy. Have FUN!

Store it in a plastic bag with a piece of paper towel to absorb some moisture. If you buy cauliflower that is wrapped in tight plastic, transfer it to a loose fitting bag before storing. If you aren't going to use the cauliflower within a week, be sure to freeze it! ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A couple's happy married life almost went on the rocks because of the presence in the household of old Aunt Emma. For seven long years she lived with them, always crotchety, always demanding. Finally the old girl died. On the way back from the cemetery, the husband confessed to his wife, "Darling, if I didn't love you so much, I don't think I would have put up with having your Aunt Emma in the house all those years." His wife looked at him aghast. *MY* Aunt Emma! " She screamed: "I thought she was *YOUR* Aunt Emma!" ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ When my sister teased her four-year-old daughter by suggesting she liked a certain boy in her kindergarten class, the little girl was quite indignant. "No mommy, I don't," she replied, "because he's only interested in one thing." Shocked, my sister cautiously asked what that might be. "Pokemon cards, of course," said the toddler. ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Jalene for this one: The math teacher saw that little Johnny wasn't paying attention in class. She called on him and said, "Johnny! What are 2 and 4 and 28 and 44?" Without hesittion Little Johnny replied: "NBC, CBS, HBO and the Cartoon Network!" ____________________________________________________
