Not knowing why he suddenly decided to confide such personal information to a complete stranger, and not knowing what else to say and wanting to be helpful, I said, "Why don't you diet?" Giving me a surprised sideways stare, he said. "Dye it? What color is it now?" ______________________________________________________ 2017 Launch Flash Sale MTP $29.99 ______________________________________________________ A spammer buys two horses but he can't tell them apart. So he asks the farmer next door what to do. He says to cut one of their tails off. So he does. But then the other horse's tail gets caught in a bush and rips off. So he can't tell them apart again. He asks the farmer for advice a second time. He tells him to cut one of the horses ears. So he does. But then the other horse gets its ear ripped in a barbed wire fence. The spammer is still confused. So he asks the farmer again what to do. He tells him to measure the horses. The spammer comes back and says, "The white horse is 2 inches taller than the black horse!" ______________________________________________________ From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Paige Nicole Adams, 24, Phoenix, Arizona Child in diapers locked in closet for 12 hours while mom allegedly took heroin, shoplifted A Phoenix mother has been arrested for child abuse after her three-year-old daughter was found locked in a closet. Paige Nicole Adams, 24, also admitted taking heroin, according to the police report. Adams was initially arrested on September 29th for allegedly shoplifting. When officers asked her if she had any children, Adams reportedly told police she had a daughter who was with friends. That 3-year-old daughter was later discovered to be alone in an apartment and barricaded in a bedroom inside one of the closets. “The victim was crying and had a dirty diaper,” stated the police report. When detectives again contacted Adams, “she admitted to detectives that she was high on heroin at the time she left her child in the apartment alone. She stated that she did not think she would be gone long,” according to the police report. When asked why she did not tell officers about her daughter once she was arrested, “she could provide no real explanation other than things were a blur,” according to the police report. The child had reportedly been left alone for nearly 12 hours. Officers also said they found syringes around the home that were accessible to the child, should she have been able to get out of the closet. Adams is due back in court October 17th. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: MsLL: Re: TRUE STORY Re: TRUE STORY Dear Webby, Re: TRUE STORY ..... < Dear MsLLebsock Whenever you see "TRUE STORY" and it comes from AOL, it is a hoax.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Awesome Cinnamon Rolls By StellaBell [187 Posts, 173 Comments] Prep Time: 1 hour (30 minute rise) Cook Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes Yield: 14 Source: http://ourbestbites.com/2010/06/everyday-cinnamon- rolls/ Ingredients: 1 cup milk 4 Tbsp butter 3 1/2 cup flour 2 1/4 tsp instant yeast 1/4 cup white sugar 1/2 tsp salt 1 egg 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed 1 1/2 Tbsp ground cinnamon 1/2 cup butter, softened Steps: Put 3/4 cup of milk and 4 Tbsp butter into a bowl and microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Then stir in the 1/4 cup cold milk to bring the temperature down a bit. Set aside. In a bowl, whisk together 2 cups of flour, white sugar, yeast and salt. Once the milk is warm (not hot) use a mixer to add the milk and 1 egg to the flour mixture. Mix until well combined. Add another cup of flour and mix until combined. Turn the dough onto a well floured surface. Have a 1/2 a scoop of flour ready, you may not use all of it. Add a bit a flour on top and coat your hands with flour, it will be very sticky at first. Slowly fold in some flour a little at a time until it is easier to work with. Once the flour is workable, but still quite soft, knead the dough for about 5 minutes. Make sure not to add too much flour or else your cinnamon rolls will come out tough. Let to dough rest for about 10 minutes while you whip together the filling. For the filling, simply mix together 1/2 cup of softened butter, 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, and 1 1/2 Tbsp ground cinnamon. On a well floured surface, roll the dough out into a 12x14 inch rectangle. Using a rubber spatula, spread the filling on top of dough, covering it edge to edge. Starting from the long side of the rectangle, roll the dough up and pinch the edge down. Use floss to score the dough to make 14 rolls. Then slide the floss under the roll at the score mark and wrap the two ends up and cross them to cut the dough. Place the rolls into a greased pan. Cover and let sit in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes. In a 350 degree F oven, bake the cinnamon rolls for 15 minutes, or until the top is slightly browned and the center of the dough looks cooked. I don't like very sweet cinnamon rolls, so I like to eat them without icing. But you can make a quick and easy icing by mixing 2 Tbsp softened butter with 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and add milk a splash at a time until you reach the consistency you like. Or you could find a nice cream cheese frosting recipe. Put the icing on while the cinnamon rolls are hot, for the best results.

A zookeeper wanted to get some extra animals for his zoo, so he decided to compose a letter, the only problem, was that he didn't know the plural of 'Mongoose'. He started the letter: "To whom it may concern, I need two Mongeese." No, that won't work, he tried again: "To whom it may concern, I need two Mongooses." Is that right? Finally, he got an idea: "To whom it may concern, I need a Mongoose, and while you're at it, send me a second one." So they sent him two male ones.
