You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus: 1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die. 2. An old friend who once saved your life. 3. The perfect woman (or man) you have been dreaming about. Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car. Think before you continue reading. This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again. Which one would you offer a ride ? Here is what I would do: I would give the car keys to my old friend, so that he can warm up while he takes the old lady to the hospital. And I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams, and hope the bus is stuck in the snow somehwere." ______________________________________________________ Cascade Mountain in Banff from FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Gary Sovie, 49, Columbus, Ohio Ohio man jailed after donating bag to charity with pictures of him raping toddler inside A man who donated a bag to charity that contained photos of him raping a toddler has been jailed for 17 years. Gary Sovie, 49, had given a tote bag of belongings into a second-hand store in Columbus, Ohio, which also contained the photographs. A Salvation Army worker found 32 photos, some showing a naked young girl and others showing the man sexually assaulting the child. It’s believed the Polaroids date as far back as 1999. The bag was traced back to Sovie by the authorities because, as well as the photos, it also contained some of his post and receipts. When he was arrested, Sovie told officers that he’s a ‘very sick person’. The victim’s mother told the court that the photos were taken when her daughter was between 16 and 18 months old. She also told local station WBNS-TV that her daughter ‘never suspected this. She has no memory. She has no recollection of this incident. ‘I was beside myself. This was my child. This was my whole world’. Sovie pleaded guilty to rape and pandering sexually orientated matter involving a minor. He was sentenced to 17 years in prison, and fined $35,000 (£28,600) as well as court costs. He has also been placed on the sex offenders’ register. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Gina Re: Old icons Dear Webby, I have a lot of old icons which at one time were in frequent enough use so that I shortened the title under them. But now I got too many of those No-Name icons. What is the easiest way to find out what each of them is about, without starting up what they stand for ? Thanks, Gina Dear Gina click on an icon to highlight it, hold down the ALT key and double-click it. That gives you all the info you might want and probably alot more. Have FUN! DearWebby A convict managed to escape from prison and his escape was the lead item on the six o'clock news. So that he would not be captured, he ran through fields and traveled through back woods until he reached his wife's house just shortly after the police stake-out departed. When he reached the house, he rang the bell, his wife opened the door and screamed, "You lousy bum! Where and with whom have you been? You escaped two days ago!"

Daily tip from Removing Labels from Glass Jars By lalala... [774 Posts, 103 Comments] In my quest to reclaim a Mason jar (specifically Classico pasta sauce jars) I needed to soak off the labels. I submerged the jars in hot water and let them sit until the paper was easy to pull off. The best part with the Classico jars is that the glue they use is also water soluble! So I was able to remove the glue with hot soapy water. With other jar, I removed the glue with Goo Gone and a paper towel. I was amazed at how well this worked! Steam from a regular steam iron works well and very fast with any label I have ever come across. Have FUN! DearWebby

The kindergarten class had settled down to its coloring books. Willie came up to the teacher's desk and said, "Miss Francis, I ain't got no crayons." "Willie," Miss Francis said, "you mean, "I don't have any crayons. You don't have any crayons. We don't have any crayons. They don't have any crayons. Do you see what I'm getting at?" "Not really," Willie said, "If nobody ain't got no crayons, then what happened to all them crayons that nobody ain't not got?"

____________________________________________________ Dr. Leroy, the head psychiatrist at the local mental hospital, is examining patients to see if they're cured and ready to re-enter society. "So, Mr. Clark," the doctor says to one of his patients, "I see by your chart that you've been recommended for dismissal. Do you have any idea what you might do once you're released?" The patient thinks for a moment, then replies, "Well, I went to school for mechanical engineering. That's still a good field, good money there. "But on the other hand, I thought I might go back to college and study art history, which I've grown interested in lately, or maybe website design." Dr. Leroy nods and says, "Yes, those all sound like intriguing possibilities." The patient replies, "And the best part is, in my spare time, I can continue being a teapot and post stuff to Yahoo groups." ____________________________________________________ According to the Knight-Ridder News Service, the inscription on the metal bands used by the U.S. Department of the Interior to tag migratory birds has been changed. The bands used to bear the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated: Wash. Biol. Surv. until the agency received the following letter from an Arkansas camper: "Dear Sirs: While camping last week I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and I want to tell you, it was horrible." The bands are now marked Fish and Wildlife Service. ____________________________________________________
