______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Bryan James Elrod, 42, Boulder, Colorado Boulder dine-and-dash suspect arrested after he left phone full of child porn. A Boulder man was arrested Thursday after police say he left a downtown restaurant without paying his bill but did leave behind a cell phone that turned up hundreds of images of child pornography and visits to child pornography websites. Bryan James Elrod, 42, was arrested on suspicion of 13 counts of sexual exploitation of a child with possession of more than 20 images, a Class 3 felony. According to an arrest affidavit, Boulder police were called to Old Chicago, 1102 Pearl St., on Oct. 9 after a customer left without paying his $37.81 bill but left behind a cellphone. When the manager turned on the phone to try to identify its owner, the browser was already opened to a site containing what appeared to be child pornography. Police took possession of the phone and determined that it belonged to Elrod before securing a warrant on Nov. 19 to search its contents. Investigators checked the browser history and found that "the majority of the websites visited were for pornography," and that many of them were sites containing child pornography, according to the affidavit. In addition, investigators found more than 8,000 images saved on the phone, most of them pornography. Of those photos, detectives said they found 267 images that were "obviously sexually explicit photographs of children," ranging in ages from toddler through early puberty. Detectives said they also found many other photographs of females possibly under the age of 18, but did not include them in the count of child pornography because they could not be sure they were minors. According to the affidavit, Elrod has an extensive criminal history — mostly in Boulder and Denver — that includes charges for fraud, theft, forgery, reckless endangerment, assault, DUI, escape from custody, shoplifting and probation and parole violations. Detectives discovered that Elrod had been arrested just days after he was alleged to have left the phone at Old Chicago on suspicion of parole violations. Elrod is currently on parole for a Logan County case, and his parole officer was concerned about him because he was not working since his release and was spending "most of his time drinking." The officer said Elrod had been staying at a motel in Longmont. A warrant for Elrod's arrest was issued and executed on Thursday, and he remains at the Boulder County Jail. Court records indicate he has not had a hearing set yet to determine bond. The warrant also indicates Elrod will not be allowed to have any contact with anyone under the age of 18 if released on bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Frank, Bob and others Re: Gethuman Dear Webby What happened to the getHuman link in the SideMenu?

DearWebby _____________________________________________________ A woman called the dean of the college that her freshman son was going to. "I'm worried. I don't know who my son can hang out with. He doesn't have the kind of money all the other students have." The dean replied, " He can hang out with the faculty." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Country Ham and Cheese Biscuits These hearty biscuits can be kept in the freezer for a quick heat-and-eat breakfast. Ingredients 2 cups self-rising flour 1/4 cup shortening 1 cup sour cream 1/4 cup milk or buttermilk 1 cup country ham, cooked, chopped fine 1 cup shredded cheese (Cheddar, Swiss, Colby, Provolone, or your choice) Directions In mixing bowl, combine flour with shortening. Using pastry blender, two forks, or clean hands, cut the shortening into the flour until the mixture resembles very coarse crumbs. Add sour cream, milk, ham, shredded cheese and mix just until combined. Turn onto floured board and knead two or three times, then flip to flour the other side. Pat dough into half inch thickness. Cut with preferred size cutter and place biscuits on lightly greased or sprayed baking sheet, with edges just touching. Bake at 450 degrees F for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve just as is or accompanied by jam, jelly, or honey. These are delicious served warm from the oven, but they also freeze remarkably well for a quick breakfast or snack any time! Just allow to cool completely and place in gallon size zip-top bag in freezer. Warm individual biscuits in the microwave for 30-60 seconds (depending on microwave, do not overheat or they will toughen). A note here about cheese: the amount of cheese can be reduced by half for the sake of thriftiness, but the full amount of cheese will of course make a richer biscuit.

____________________________________________________ A nursery school teacher was delivering a station wagon full of kids home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started to discuss the dog's duties. "They use him to keep crowds back," said one youngster. "No," said another, "he's just for good luck." "I know!" said a third... "They use it to find the fire hydrant!" ____________________________________________________ One day a salesman stopped by the Jammer Jones farm, knocked, and Jammer's wife Frannie came to the door. "Is your husband home, Ma'am?" he asked. "Sure is. He's over at the cow barn." "Well, I have some important items to show him, Ma'am. Will I have any difficulty finding him?" "Shouldn't...He's the one without horns." ____________________________________________________
