______________________________________________________ Beth walked into the doctor's waiting room and couldn't find an empty seat anywhere. Finally, she walks over to one gentleman that was sitting down, and said, "I wonder if I might trouble you for your seat. You see, I'm pregnant." The gentleman groaned, and in obvious pain struggled to his feet and lurched across the room to lean on the the water fountain for support. As Beth sat down, another lady in the waiting room looked her over and said, "You know, if you hadn't told me, I never would have guessed you were pregnant. How far along are you?" Looking at her watch, she replied, "Oh, about a half an hour!" ______________________________________________________ Hi Owlie! From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Sammy Luciano, 39, Palm City, Floriduh Sammy Luciano arrested for 34th time after driving a stolen car at 110 mph 39-year old Sammy Luciano is no stranger to illegal and dangerous behavior. Early this morning, Luciano tested the skills of Martin County Sheriff’s 400-Shift deputies, finding out quickly that they don’t give up until the job gets done. Late last night, the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office released a BOLO (be on the look-out) reference a stolen car out of their county. Just after 4 o’clock this morning, MCSO spotted that vehicle, driving recklessly at speeds of more than 110-mph. Deputies conducted a felony traffic stop near I-95 and SR714. When they attempted to speak to the driver, (who turned out to be Luciano), he took off on foot and ran into a dark muddy wooded area. Deputies set up a perimeter, and within 45-minutes, plucked Luciano out of the muck. Luciano has an extensive criminal history for crimes such as burglary, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, robbery, fleeing and eluding, battery on a law enforcement officer, violation of probation, possession of drugs, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, and causing serious injury or death by failing to stop. This time he was charged with felony drunk driving, grand theft of a motor vehicle, and resisting arrest. He was taken to the Martin County Jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Julia Re: How should back-up CDs and removable drives be stored? Dear Webby How should back-up CDs and removable drives be stored? Julia Dear Julia By far the best way to store them is in those lockable hardcase briefcases. If you are in a hurry to buy them, they are around $100, but every now and then they go on sale for as little as $14.95. Look for the ones that have combination lock latches and a harmonica style expansion section. To stand up CD's in them you need that expansion space. In those hardcases they are protected from dust, humidity, and rapid temperature changes. If you are in a hurry to evacuate the building for whatever emergency reason, you can quickly grab those hardcases with the company back-ups and carry them to safety in a much more civilized manner than juggling a stack of shoe boxes. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ As the rookie cop passed a store he heard a noisy argument. He paused, listened again, then stepped inside to investigate. "What's going on?" he demanded. "What's all the noise about?" "It's nothing," said Latreesha, the proprietor. "I'm all alone!" "Wait a minute, Ma'am," said the cop. "I distinctly heard an argument going on." "You don't understand, officer," said Latreesha. "I'm alone in the store. Business is terrible. So to pass the time away, I talk to myself, and when I talk to myself, there's bound to be an argument." "How can you argue with yourself?" asked the cop. "It's easy, said Latreesha, "because I hate liars!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Organic Coconut Oil Chocolates By Marjorie [81 Posts, 1,754 Comments] Organic Coconut Oil Chocolates By Marjorie [81 Posts, 1,754 Comments] These are the best chocolates I have ever had. This recipe is organic and free of genetically modified ingredients. I use cacao powder, not to be confused with cocoa, real maple syrup that has to be refrigerated and coconut oil. The commercially made syrups are full of high fructose corn syrup and some maple flavoring. I buy a lot of food online through Approximate Time: 1 hour Yield: 24 or more Ingredients: 1 cup organic virgin coconut oil 1/2 cup organic cacao powder 1/4 cup pure maple syrup Steps: Place all ingredients in a stand mixer and blend until smooth (stopping a couple times to scrape down the sides). Using a tablespoon, measure chocolate mixture and drop on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Freeze for 1-2 hours. Remove and enjoy. Keep these chocolates in an air-tight container in your freezer. Option: add a couple drops of mint extract to give these chocolates a minty flavor. If you use real coconut oil, you will have to warm it to pour and measure it. If you don't like the real maple syrup, which can be rather harsh for people, who are not used to it, you can use honey. Then you don't have to keep them in the freezer. The Costco dried Mango chips in dark chocolate are a good example. No need to freeze or refrigerate, and quite hard even at room temperature. To get the strongest flavor, use "Fair Price" Cacao. It is more expensive, but mixing even a small percentage of it with regular Cacao makes a very noticeable difference. You can add raisins to the mix Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________
