It was found by an honest little boy and returned to her. Looking in her purse, she commented, "Hmmm.... That's funny. When I lost my bag there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills." The boy quickly replied, "That's right, lady. The last time I found a lady's purse, she didn't have any change for a reward." ______________________________________________________ 2017 Launch Flash Sale MTP $29.99 ______________________________________________________ After putting her children to bed, a mother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse, put the green mud-pack on her face, the teeth-whitening cartridge in her mouth and proceeded to wash her hair and stick curlers into it. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. At last she threw a towel over her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard her three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was that monfter ?" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Lillemor for this picture from Sweden ______________________________________________________

I looked online but the answers I saw were very confusing. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you, Helen Fist scan your machine with Malwarebystes That should stop further damage. Then go to Appuals and tediously repair the damage, that has been done already. That involves downloading a few files from Microsoft, and deleting some junk files. It's not difficult and not rocket science, just a bit tedious. After that, svchost (netservices) should be way down the list and not even show on the first page. Your machine will run much faster and you won't have to reboot it every day . Have FUN! DearWebby The newlyweds had decided to take Amtrak's "Car Train" to Florida, so they would have the mobility of being able to use their own vehicle on the honeymoon. They settled into one of the train's upper berths together and cuddled. As the night progressed, the new bride was heard to say quite excitedly a number of times, "I just can't believe that we're finally married, Dewayne." After about the 3rd time in five minutes, a voice came out of the dark below them: "Dammit, Dewayne! Will you please CONVINCE her, so we can all get some sleep?"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Peanut Butter Banana Puffed Rice Squares By attosa [244 Posts, 548 Comments] This is a little twist on a Krispie Treat. Using puffed rice, bananas and peanut butter give it a lovely velvety texture. You can substitute crisped rice for the puffed rice, if you like. This recipe also doubles perfectly, just use a bigger pan or dish. Prep Time: 2 Cook Time: 2 Total Time: 20 Ingredients: 3 cups puffed rice 1 Tbsp butter 6 oz marshmallows 1/2 banana 1/3 cup peanut butter 1/3 cup chocolate chips Steps: Lightly grease an 8 x 6 inch baking dish and set aside. In a microwavable bowl, heat up butter and peanut butter in 30 second increments until butter has melted. Mash the half banana. Add it to your peanut butter mixture. Mix well. Add the marshmallows to the bowl and return to the microwave. Heat at 30 second increments until melted. Peanut Butter Banana Puffed Rice Squares Add puffed rice. Stir well until completely coated by marshmallow peanut butter mixture. Pour into your greased dish and press in tightly. Put chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat at 30 second increments until melted. Pour on top of the pressed rice mixture. Place in the freezer for about 10 to 15 minutes to set. To avoid the dreaded dry and mealy look of the chocolate, don't overheat and wait for it to LOOK melted. Add a bit of butter to the chips and stir vigorously after 45 seconds. That way it will produce a strong, smooth and shiny cover. Have FUN! DearWebby

Little Johnny came home from school one day and said, "Mom, the teacher asked me today if I had any brothers or sisters." "And what did she say when you told her you were an only child?" his mom asked. And Little Johnny said, "Well, she just let out a deep breath and said, 'Thank goodness'."

____________________________________________________ An analyst was listening to a voluptuous beauty with a problem of her own. "It's liquor, doctor," she sobbed. "I'm really a very nice girl, but just as soon as I've had a drink or two, I become uncontrollably passionate and I want to make love to whomever I happen to be with." "I see," the analyst said thoughtfully. "Well, suppose I just mix us up a couple of cocktails here and then you and I can sit down, nice and relaxed, and discuss this compulsive neurosis of yours." ____________________________________________________ Angus has been at a pub all night drinking. The bartender finally says that the bar is closed. So he stands up to leave and falls flat on his face. He figures he'll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up. Once outside he stands up and falls flat on his face. So he crawls home and at the door stands up and falls flat on his face again. He crawls through the door and up the stairs. When he reaches the bed, he tries one more time to stand up. This time he falls right into bed and is sound asleep. He awakens the next morning to his wife standing over him shouting at him. 'So, you've been out drinking again!!' 'How did you know?' he asks. 'The pub called, you left your wheelchair there again.' ____________________________________________________
