With about six other patients waiting, the child toddled up to her mother, looked her straight in the face and shook her shoulder. "Mommy," she yelled, "wake up! This is not church!"

"Your honor," a defense attorney began, "I have a series of witnesses that can testify that Mr. Johnson was nowhere near the scene of the crime when it occurred." The judge looked at the defense table and said, "This is the third time you've been in this court room this week, and I'm getting sick of hearing your lies." The defendant stood up with a confused expression and said, "Your honor, you must be mistaken. I've never been here in my life." Waving his finger, the judge replied, "I was referring to your lawyer." ______________________________________________________ The temperature had taken an overnight plunge, and Minnesota reaffirmed its reputation as one of the nation's coldest states. Despite a wind-chill of minus 40, the steelworkers erecting a TV tower in a Minneapolis-St. Paul suburb showed up for work. By 9 a.m., a tall Texan climbed down from the tower and entered the construction trailer. He took his lunch pail from the shelf and headed for the door. "What's up?" the foreman asked. "You sick?" "Nope," the Texan replied. "Goin' home to get my jacket." "Where's home?" the foreman persisted. "Dallas," he said. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to dad for this picture These bloomed today ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Josue Moncada, 31, Ercilia Moncada, 41, Ocala, Florida. Florida siblings charged with DUI A 41-woman and her 31-year-old brother were arrested by Florida Highway Patrol troopers and charged with DUI Friday morning. Officials said they received a bulletin to be on the lookout for a reckless driver traveling southbound on Interstate 75 and a trooper spotted the vehicle and was able to stop it on State Road 200 east of Southwest 43rd Street Road. While talking with the driver, later identified as Josue Moncada, the trooper detected alcohol and arrested him on a DUI charge at 2:55 a.m. Minutes later, Moncada's sister, Ercilia Moncada, arrived at the incident location and argued with the trooper about why he was arresting her brother. Another trooper was called to the location and while talking with her, found her to be impaired. After their investigation, she was also arrested on a DUI charge at 3:18 a.m. and placed in second trooper's cruiser. The first trooper left the scene to take Moncada's brother to the Marion County Jail, leaving the second trooper and the woman behind. The woman, who was handcuffed, managed to escape, but was later captured in the 2300 block of Southeast 19th Circle. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ray RE: How to open email attachments Dear Webby, I am receiving e-mails with attachments and can not open them. When I click on the attachment the "window" is not highlighted and nothing happens. What can I do? Thank you, Ray Dear Ray I realize that as far as email is concerned, because I use Eudora, I am leading a very sheltered life. Personally I have not seen that problem yet, but I have been using email for only about 23 years. Find out where your attachments are saved to. All the better email programs let you set that destination. If yours doesn't, copy the name of the attachment and do a search for it with "SearchEverything", or if you have a lot of time, with the Windows Search. Once you have found that location, you should see the extension, the part of the file name after the dot. If it is jpg, gif, or png, it is a picture and usually quite safe. If it is mid, mp3, mp4 or wav, it is sound or video and safe too. If it is pdf or pps, then it is a PDF file or a presentation. Those are usually safe too. If it is DOC or DOCX or XLS or XLSX, then it is from Microsoft Office and it COULD be safe, or it could be extremely dangerous. Check those with a good and reliable virus checker like McAfee. If the file is .zip, dump it fast. Once upon a time .zip was used to compress files or to deliver collections of files over slow internet connections. Nowadays only scammers use .zip files in emails. Dump those. Once you have made sure the attachment file is safe, hit it in the search or go after it with the file explorer. Windows will probably tell you the same as your email program did, that no program is assigned to work with that stuff, but it will let you assign a program and give you some choices. If you don't see any usable choices, then you will have to install a suitable program. Just google for "program to open .xxx" where xxx is the extension of that attachment file. Just pick a free one from a reputable source and install it. During the installation that program will offer to be your default program for opening xxx and a few other types of files. Once that has been assigned, try your email again, and it will open the attachment just like it is supposed to. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Walking downtown one day, I noticed that a music store had just opened. Inside the shop, my attention was caught by a huge Oriental gong, and I went up to take a closer look. The gong was four feet in diameter. On a rope next to it hung a two-foot-long mallet with a top the size of a soft- ball. A piece of notebook paper bearing one word in large letters was taped to the center of the gong. The word was "NO!" ---------------- That reminds me.... During my University days we had two types of students, "Commuter" and "Party-Town". I was a "Commuter", mainly because I had a 5PM to 1AM night job across the nearby border, and only lived 10 miles from the University. "Party-Towners" were the residents of the dorms, frat and sorry houses within walking distance of the University. Since Party-Town was half way between my job and home, and since my bike was a fast but rather chilly ride, I usually stopped at a sorry-house to warm up. (Sorry-House is a sorority house, female version of a frat-house, where you are always greeted with either: "Sorry it's such a mess." or with "Sorry, not tonight, I have a headache.") On one of those warm-up stops a lady I knew from one of my seminars, invited me up to her room to show me her "Multilingual Talking Clock". Yes, you guessed it, it was one of those huge brass gongs. When she grabbed the mallet, I grabbed a couple of pillows. One for each ear. In that tiny, stone-walled room the noise was still awesome. A minute later voices from all over the sorry-house drifted in, all yelling in various different languages something like: "Kock it off, you airhead! It's 1:45 in the morning!" What made it really funny was a few hours later, when we were woken up, ahem, I mean interrupted in our dilligent studying, by a similar gong echoing through the building. Maria twisted my wrist to see my watch, and then screamed: "Knock it off you airhead! It's 4:50 in the morning!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Substituting Tomato Paste for Tomato Sauce By Dorothy [2 Posts, 9 Comments] I often make changes like that, primarily because you get a better-quality product when you do. Try using 1/2 water (or stock if you have any) and 1/2 tomato paste. Add a little Italian seasoning, i.e. basil, oregano, garlic, parsley and a bit of sugar. Start with 1/4 tsp. of each, taste your concoction and go from there. Most recipes are not so finicky that they would suffer from such a change, and the bonus is that there are no unpronounceable ingredients in your sauce. Good luck! ______________________________________________________

Mothers Day Video
____________________________________________________ A generously endowed young lady often got teased by her sisters for being so top-heavy. At a party a young man asked her what she would like to drink. "Diet soda, please," she replied. "Oh, you must be the double D." he said. The girl was furious, wondering which of her so-called friends had divulged such personal information. "And just what do you mean by that?" she snapped. Surprised at her angry response, the young man meekly answered, "Oh, you know -- the Designated Driver." __________________________________________________ *"If it" office advice* If it rings, answer it.
