______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Richard Leon, Webster, NY Bank Robber Busted in 'Coincidence' after 13 years An envelope gave the FBI the DNA sample it neededó13 years after the fact A man charged in a fatal bank robbery 13 years ago was captured with the help of a tipster and DNA secretly collected from an envelope when he coincidentally filed a fraud complaint. Authorities say Richard Leon Wilbern was arrested Tuesday when he went to meet with FBI agents in Rochester for what he thought was a meeting about his complaint. Wilbern had been on the FBI's radar since March, when a former co-worker named him as a suspect in the August 2003 robbery of a credit union on the Xerox Corp.'s campus in Webster, NY, where he once worked, the AP reports. A bank customer was fatally shot in the neck and another customer was wounded when a man wearing an FBI jacket opened fire after telling an employee he was there for a security assessment. The robber escaped with more than $10,000. In what the FBI called "an incredible coincidence," investigators were looking into the tip when Wilbern called the FBI to report a suspected real estate scam. When agents met with Wilbern, who had served time for a 1980 bank robbery, they had him sign paperwork and lick an envelope, from which they obtained a DNA sample. They matched that sample to one taken from an umbrella left behind at the bank robbery 13 years earlier. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Harmony RE: More neat commands! Dear Webby, Those commands were a real treat! I love that back-up bat. One click, and it does it. And instead of buying a big, bloated program, all I did was copy a few lines from the Humor Letter, changed the folder names, and saved it. Why pay $49 when a few lines of code will do the ame, and probably faster. I also adopted your "Not THAT key!". What a hoot! Now I need some more ammo. How do I get a complete listing of all files on a drive or chip, including what is in the subdirectories, but sent to a file, since it would be too much to read on the screen. I then want to edit that file, delete the names of all good files and just leave the names of files, that need to be deleted off the drive. Thanks! Harmony Dear Harmony To put all the names of the files on that drive or chip into a text file, use this command: let's assume the name of that drive is H: dir H: /s /b > c:\file-list.txt That includes the full path, for example: H:\pix\Canon\2014\June\Mom-and-dog.jpg That is what you need to delete files with a bat, the full path. for /f %%a in c:\file-list.txt do del %%a That deletes all the files mentioned in c:\file-list.txt, but does not touch any other ones. Have FUN! DearWebby Several women were visiting an elderly friend who was ill. After awhile, they rose to leave and told her; "We will keep you in our prayers." "Just wash the dishes in the kitchen," the ailing woman said, "I can do my own praying."

Daily tip from Using Less Toilet Tissue By ShirleyE [103 Posts, 64 Comments] Here are 2 tricks to encourage other members of your household to use less toilet tissue. People tend to pull less off the roll if you have the paper rolling off from the top.

A Baptist preacher and his wife decided they needed a dog. Ever mindful of the congregation, they knew the dog must also be Baptist. They visited an expensive kennel and explained their needs to the manager, who assured them he had just the dog for them. The dog was produced and the manager said, "Fetch the Bible." The dog bounded to the bookshelf, scrutinized the books, located the Bible, and brought it to the manager. The manager then said "Find Psalms 23". The dog, showing marvelous dexterity with his paws, leafed thru the Bible, found the correct passage, and pointed to it with his paw. Duly impressed, the couple purchased the dog. That evening a group of parishioners came to visit. The preacher and his wife began to show off the dog, having him locate several Bible verses. The visitors were amazed. Finally, one man asked, "Can he do normal dog tricks too?" "Let's see" said the preacher. Pointing his finger at the dog, he commanded "Heel!" The dog immediately jumped up on a chair, placed one paw on the preacher's forehead and began to howl. The preacher turned to his wife and exclaimed "Good grief, we've bought a Pentecostal dog!"

____________________________________________________ Dilbert's Words of Wisdom (all of these phrases have existed long before Dilbert collected them) 1.) I can please only one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow isn't looking good either. 2.) I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make as they go flying by. 3.) Am I getting smart with you? How would you know? 4.) I'd explain it to you, but your brain would explode. 5.) Someday we'll look back on all this and plow into a parked car. 6.) There are very few personal problems that cannot be solved through a suitable application of high explosives. 7.) Tell me what you need, and I'll tell you how to get along without it. 8.) Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue. 9.) Needing someone is like needing a parachute. If he isn't there the first time you need him, chances are you won't be needing him again. 10.) I don't have an attitude problem. You have a perception problem. 11.) Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, "Where the hell is the ceiling?!" 12.) My Reality Check bounced. 13.) On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger on the escape key. 14.) I don't suffer from stress. I'm a carrier. 15.) You're slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter. 16.) Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, 'cuz, like to them, you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup. 17.) Everybody is somebody else's weirdo. 18.) Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience. ____________________________________________________ My wife asked me if a certain dress made her butt look big. I told her Not as much as the dress that she had worn yesterday. And then the fight started. ____________________________________________________
