She told her she couldn't go to the Sunday School Picnic on Saturday. When the day came, her mother felt she had been too harsh and changed her mind. When she told the little girl she could go to the picnic, the child's reaction was one of gloom and unhappiness. "What's the matter? I thought you'd be glad to go to the picnic." her mother said. "It's too late!" the little girl said. "I've already prayed for a snowstorm!" ______________________________________________________ 2017 Launch Flash Sale MTP $29.99 ______________________________________________________ And what was the culmination of events that led you to file this action," asked the man's attorney in the divorce hearing.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Timothy De’Shaun Taylor 23 in jail CHARLESTON, S.C Missing teen had been abducted, gang-raped, shot and fed to alligators. A New York teenager who went missing during a spring break trip in 2009 was abducted, gang-raped at a stash house, shot after trying to escape, and then her body was fed to alligators, according to an FBI agent’s court testimony. Brittanee Drexel of Rochester, N.Y., was 17 when she went to Myrtle Beach, S.C., for spring break. Earlier this year, the FBI said they believed Drexel had been murdered. FBI agent Gerrick Munoz recently testified that several people who claim to have witnessed Drexel’s death have come forward, WMBF reports. Munnoz testified in a detention hearing that Timothy De’Shaun Taylor is one of the main suspects in Drexel’s disappearance. Taylor is being held in an unrelated case involving a robbery in 2011. Inmate Taquan Brown told authorities that he was present at the stash house when Drexel was killed, according to court records. Brown reportedly told Munoz that he saw Taylor, who was 16 at the time, and several others sexually abuse Drexel at the stash house, WMBF reported. Brown also said that at one point, Drexel tried to run away and was pistol whipped. Brown said he heard two shots and assumed Drexel was killed. Munoz testified that several witnesses said Drexel’s body was then put into an alligator pit so it could be eaten. Munoz said several alligator ponds were searched but nothing was found. Another unidentified inmate corroborated that account, Munoz testified. That inmate told Munoz that Drexel was abducted by Taylor and she was in a “human trafficking situation.” (rented out) The inmate said “it became a problem” when there was media coverage about Drexel’s disappearance and she was then “murdered and disposed of.” BL&M ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bob RE: Do I need a Firewall Dear Webby, I recently read an article about DSL users and firewalls, etc. It stated that all one has to do is turn off your file sharing feature off and all would be ok. Any truth to this statement? If so, how does one find and shut off the file sharing feature in Windows? Thanks, Bob < Dear Bob If it was that easy, then a few hundred Million people would be dumping their firewalls and use that method. That advice is just a hoax. Considering that you can get free firewalls, there is no reason to attempt to use shortcuts that leave you unprotected. Have FUN! DearWebby "Information?

Add some cold milk and stir, gradually adding all the milk while stirring. Add gelatin and stir. Turn the heat on to medium. Keep stirring to avoid sticking the bottom until bubbles start appearing at the top. Add sugar when the milk comes to a boil, stir. Add vanilla. Remove pan from heat. Stir in almonds. Let cool. Pour into individual cups or into a serving dish. It will harden as it sits. Chill in fridge if you want to serve it cold (my preference), but it can also be served warm. It's lovely with a dollop of jam or fresh fruits. Enjoy!

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Bea for this one: On my 15th birthday, I opened a package from my mom and sister. Out came a beauty case containing samples of my very own makeup. "Oh, neat," my dad said excitedly, "a tackle box!" My mother and sister explained that it was a beauty kit, not a tackle box. As I opened it up and showed everyone the eye shadow, mascara, and rouge, my father leaned over to my mother and whispered, "I told you it was a tackle box. Just look at all those lures." ____________________________________________________ "Heallo Tower ! It seems we sleed offa the runway a bit an the engine swallowed some of that there snow and konked out. Kin y'all send us a toe-truck? " "Tower to that Cessna stuck in a snow bank at the wrong end of the runway: Just relax, it's supposed to warm up in a week. Somebody will be out then to tow you back to the runway." ____________________________________________________
I'm afraid it's going to be sooner rather than later. Odama has cut our military down to where it was before WWI, he doesn't intend to let America win another world war.
