When my sister's husband died, she went to the bank to put his affairs in order. The young clerk looked up their joint account and then asked, "Which of you is deceased?" "I am", she told the clerk, "but my husband was in such deep shock about it, that they buried him instead of me." "Well, if you are deceased," the teller muttered, "you can't have a bank account and it goes to him. But if he is buried, he can't sign the checks!" "That's OK", my sister told her, "they take VISA anywhere. I'll be responsible for the checks, and you can send the VISA bills to him." ______________________________________________________ Kim was telling her friend how she gets her son out of bed in the morning.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Maryland arsonist gets 55 years A 26-year-old Pasadena man, dubbed the "fire selfie" arsonist, was sentenced Friday to 55 years in jail for intentionally setting fire in 2015 to a home with three people inside of it. Justin Michael Clum was sentenced a little less than four months after he pleaded guilty to 25 counts associated with the crime, including attempted first-degree murder, first- degree arson and first-degree assault. "Mr. Clum's intentional and reckless actions in his attempt to kill one intended victim, almost killed another man, woman and child as they slept," said Wes Adams, Anne Arundel County state's attorney, said in a statement. "His actions also put 23 of our first responders in harm's way as they battled this blaze in the middle of the night." Prosecutors said that early in the morning of July 17, 2015, Clum and his girlfriend were drinking vodka on a community pier when Clum learned of a past sexual relationship between his girlfriend and another man. Clum then went and got some gasoline and drove to the man's home with his girlfriend. He poured gasoline on the front porch and set the home on fire, intending to kill the man. However the intended victim, who rented a room in the house on Wendover Road in Glen Burnie, was not home at the time of the fire. Prosecutors said three people were inside at the fire of the fire: homeowners Sandra and Brian Deal and their teen-aged daughter. All three were able to escape after the home's smoke alarms gave them warning. Fire officials said it took 23 firefighters about an hour to control the fire. The house was destroyed. Prosecutors said Clum fled the scene but returned the same day to take pictures of the burned property. "Through his willful actions, the defendant put the lives of the occupants of the home, responding firefighters and the public at risk," Anne Arundel County Fire Chief Allan Graves said in a statement. "This sentence reflects the seriousness of his actions and reflects the continued high level of cooperation between the fire department arson investigators and the state's attorney's office." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Noella, David RE: Copying CDs on XP Dear Webby [5:33:56 AM] Noellas: Windows Media player will rip a cd - already on XP - very easy to do [5:34:05 AM] Noella: I use it all the time [5:34:35 AM] Dear Webby: OK, will tell her if she writes back [5:35:25 AM] Noella: there's a tab - JUST for ripping, she can choose which tracks to rip. If there is only one track, she'll have to rip the whole thing and then use Audacity. --------- For Penne on the tracks of her CD being in improper order, the program is organizing under another protocol...likely alphabetical...and is best (IMHO) solved by renaming each track with numbers (01, 02, etc) in front of the track name. I use this method and it works well. (Cautioning of course on the illegality of copying discs with a copyright.) David Thanks Noella! Thanks David! Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Two women came before wise King Solomon, dragging between them a young man. "This young man agreed to marry my daughter," said one. "No! He agreed to marry MY daughter," said the other. And so they haggled before the King, until he called for silence. "Bring me my biggest sword," said Solomon, "and I shall hew the young man in half. Each of you shall receive a half." "Sounds good to me," said the first lady. But the other woman said, "Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let the other woman's daughter marry him." The wise king did not hesitate a moment. "The young man must marry the first woman's daughter," he proclaimed. "But she was willing to hew him in two!" exclaimed the king's court. "Indeed," said wise King Solomon. "That shows she is the TRUE mother-in-law." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Berry Slab Pie By lalala...

It's not about the nail
____________________________________________________ The new teacher advised the class to start the day with the pledge of allegiance, and instructed them to put their right hands over their hearts and repeat after him. He looked around the room as he started the recitation, "I pledge allegiance to the flag..." When his eyes fell on Johnny, he noticed Johnny's hand over the right cheek of his buttocks. "Johnny, I will not continue 'til you put your hand over your heart." Johnny replied, "It IS over my heart." After several attempts to get Johnny to put his hand over his heart, the teacher asked, "Why do you think that is your heart?" "Because every time my Grandma comes to visit, she picks me up, pats me here, and says, 'Bless your little heart,' and MY Grandma wouldn't lie." ____________________________________________________ Here is a real classic from the Humor letter in the days of Windows NT Here is a real classic: After experiencing difficulties with his computer, a poor, incognizant user called the system maker's technical support line for assistance... Technician: Hello. How can I help you today? Customer: There's smoke coming from the power supply on my computer. Technician: Looks like you need a new power supply. Customer: No, I don't! I just need to change the startup files. Technician: Sir, what you described is a faulty power supply. You need to replace it. Customer: No way! Someone told me that I just had to change the system startup files to fix the problem! All I need is for you to tell me the right command. For the next ten minutes, in spite of the technician's efforts to explain the problem and its solution, the customer adamantly insisted that he was right. So, in frustration, the technician responded: Technician: I'm sorry. We don't normally tell our customers this, but there's an undocumented command that should fix the problem. Customer: I knew it! Technician: Just add the line 'LOAD NOSMOKE.COM' at the end of the autoexec.nt file and everything should work fine. Let me know how it goes. About ten minutes later, the technician received a call back from the customer. Customer: It didn't work. The power supply is still smoking. Technician: Well, what version of Windows are you using? Customer: Windows NT Technician: Well, that's your problem. That version of Windows doesn't include NOSMOKE. You'll need to contact Microsoft and ask them for a patch. Let me know how it all works out. When nearly an hour had passed, the phone rang again. Customer: I need a new power supply. Technician: How did you come to that conclusion? Customer: Well, I called Microsoft and told the technician what you said, and he started asking me questions about the make of the power supply. Technician: What did he tell you? Customer: He said my power supply isn't compatible with NOSMOKE. ____________________________________________________
