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 idiot out of his locker." ______________________________________________________ "Sally," asked Linda one day, "what would you do if you caught another woman fooling around with your husband?"

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lawrence John Ripple, 70, Kansas City, Kansas KCK bank robber, 70, chooses prison over home and wife A 70-year-old man charged with robbing a Kansas City, Kan., bank said he did it because he preferred a jail cell over living with his wife. Lawrence John Ripple is charged in federal court with the Friday afternoon robbery of the Bank of Labor at 756 Minnesota Ave. According to court documents, Ripple handed a teller a note that read, “I have a gun, give me money.” The teller complied. But instead of fleeing, Ripple took the money and then took a seat in the bank lobby, according to the documents. When a bank security guard approached him, Ripple told the guard, “I’m the guy you’re looking for.” The guard took the money from Ripple and held him until police arrived, which wasn’t long, because Kansas City, Kan., police headquarters is on the same block. When he was questioned later by investigators, Ripple told him that he and his wife had argued and he “no longer wanted to be in that situation,” according to the documents. “Ripple wrote out his demand note in front of his wife … and told her he’d rather be in jail than at home,” an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit filed in support of the robbery charge. ----------------------------- From 2003 A BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Rudolf M, from Serbia Serbian made illegal border crossing to escape wife A Serbian man who rode off on his bicycle to Romania in anger after a row with his wife has been arrested for crossing the border illegally. The 46-year-old, named only as Rudolf M, says all he wanted was to get as far away from his wife as possible but could now face a jail term. He was arrested just after he crossed the border with Romania, roughly 20 miles from his home town of Kanjia, Serbia, local media reported. He told police: "All I wanted to do was put at least one border between me and her." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bonnie RE: Disk Cleanup Dear Webby, can you tell me how to run Disk Cleanup?

I decided to make a hearty stew for dinner. There were various hot peppers included this week, too. I didn't know exactly what they were, so I just chopped them up and threw them in. The stew starts off with a relatively sweet flavor, but has a nice kick at the end. Prep Time: 30 Minutes Cook Time: 2 Hours Total Time: 2.5 Hours Yield: 8 Ingredients: As I was working with fresh organic veggies, I had a lot of chopping and prep involved. You could save some time by using frozen veggies instead of fresh. I also cut off a section of a pork loin that I'm planning on cooking later in the week. You could use pork chops or any other type of meat you might have handy. I did use Better than Bouillon chicken base. I like it better than bouillon cubes and I didn't have any liquid broth handy. 1-2 lb pork 3 Tbsp olive oil, divided 1 onion, chopped 2 Tbsp chopped garlic 1 lb potatoes, chopped 1 bunch carrots (5 large), sliced 5 peppers*, chopped and deseeded 2 cups corn kernels 1 qt chicken stock or bouillon 1 bunch Italian parsley, chopped 1 bunch kale, chopped salt, pepper and Italian seasoning, to taste Ingredients for Pork and Vegetable Harvest Stew *Use whatever pepper your family enjoys. I used a combination of hot and sweet ones. It would be also good with regular bell peppers. Steps: Cut pork into cubes. Brown the pork with oil in a hot stockpot or Dutch oven. Add salt and pepper. Set aside. Add more oil to the pot and cook chopped onions and garlic until they start to brown. Add corn, peppers and the cooked pork, including any juices. Add zucchini and continue to cook for a couple of minutes. Add chicken broth, carrots and potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cover pot. Cook on low for 1- 2 hours, until the potatoes and carrots are soft. Add kale and parsley. Continue on simmer for 10 minutes or so. Add salt, pepper and Italian seasonings. Adjust the taste to your liking. If the soup is too sweet, add in a bit of apple cider or white wine vinegar to correct it. I also used a bit of Worchestershire sauce to add flavor. ______________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ My Dad and I were talking the other night about love and marriage. He told me that he knew as early as their wedding what marriage to my Mom would be like. The minister asked my Mom, "Do you take this man to be your husband." And she said, "I do." Then the minister asked my Dad, "Do you take this woman to be your wife," and my Mom apparently said, "He better, if he knows what's good for him!." ___________________________________________________
The Wish Granter
____________________________________________________ A troop of Boy Scouts was being used as "guinea pigs" in a test of emergency systems. A mock earthquake was staged, and the Scouts impersonated wounded persons who were to be picked up and cared for by the emergency units. One Scout was supposed to lie on the ground and await his rescuers, but the first-aid people got behind schedule, and the Scout lay "wounded" for several hours. When the first-aid squad arrived where the casualty was supposed to be, they found nothing but a brief note: "Have bled to death and gone home. I will be back after supper." ____________________________________________________ A nervous young minister, new to the church, told the flock, "For my text today, I will take the words, 'And they fed five men with five thousand loaves of bread and two thousand fishes.'" A member of the flock snicked at the preacher's snafu, raised his hand and said, "That's not much of a trick. I could do that." The minister didn't respond. However, the next Sunday he decided to repeat the text. This time he did it properly, "And they fed five thousand men with five loaves of bread and two fishes." Smiling, the minister said to the noisy man, "Could you do that, Mr. Perkins?" The member of the flock said, "I sure could." "How would you do it?" "With all the food I had left over from last Sunday!" ____________________________________________________
