______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rene Lopez, 41, Fresno, California California father jailed for 1,503 years for repeatedly raping his daughter A man has been given a 1,503-year prison sentence for repeatedly raping his teenage daughter over a four year period. Rene Lopez, 41, was sentenced to the longest-known prison sentence in Fresno Superior Court history, according to the Fresno Bee. A jury in September found Lopez guilty of 186 felony counts of sexual assault, including dozens of counts of rape of a minor. Prosecutors say Lopez’s daughter was first sexually abused by a family friend but that instead of protecting her, Lopez turned her into ‘a piece of property.’ They say the victim was raped two to three times a week from May 2009 to May 2013, when the girl got the courage to leave him. In announcing the punishment, Judge Edward Sarkisian Jr. told Lopez he is a ‘serious danger to society’ and noted that Lopez had never shown remorse and has blamed his daughter for his predicament. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Calla Re: Making icons Dear Webby, I need to make a bunch of icons for vision impaired people. Yes, I know there are tons of icons hidden in Windows and wherever, but I have to make new ones, mostly with just a letter or a number on them. What program do you recommend for that? Calla Dear Calla Icons are just .bmp pictures renamed to .ico Paint your icons 64 x 64 pixels, save them as .BMP files, and close the picture. Then rename them by using the file explorer to .ICO. Then you can highlight a shortcut, select properties, chanege Icon and select your just made .ico picture. There are programs available for making icons, some quite expensive, but all you really need is any graphics program, that will let you save files as .BMP. Have FUN! DearWebby At our local funeral home families are given the chance to chose the music they would like to enter the service to. One family asked to enter to Elvis Presley's hit, "Love me Tender." The day of the funeral arrived and the music was started ready for the family to walk in to the service. Unfortunately the wrong track number was entered into the CD player, and the family found themselves walking in to, "Return to Sender."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Making a Mosquito Trap Because mosquitoes are attracted to the CO2 we breathe out, I started looking for ideas that used CO2 as the bait for the mosquito trap. I did think of dry ice but it does dissipate fairly quickly. I found a cached link on Google here. It seems to be active again now. I've rewritten the instructions some and hopefully it will work as well. Thanks to the students for their hard work on this project. I've used some of their photos for illustration. Supplies: 1 2 liter soda bottle a sharp knife black paper tape candy thermometer Take a 2 liter soda bottle. Cut off the top right below where it starts to narrow for the top, invert and place inside the lower half. Make a simple sugar syrup. Ingredients: 1 cup sugar 1 cup water 2 cups cool water 1 tsp. active dry yeast Directions: Bring 1 cup of the water to a boil. Dissolve the sugar into the boiling water. Once the sugar is dissolved completely, remove the pan from the heat. Stir in 2 cups cool water, stir well. Check the temperature of the syrup to make sure it is no hotter than 90 degrees F, if hotter, let cool to 90 degrees F, add 1 tsp. active dry yeast, no need to mix. Put syrup in the bottom part of the bottle, using the cut off neck piece, leave in place. Be sure to seal the two parts of the bottle with the tape. The fermenting yeast will release carbon dioxide. Put black paper around the bottle since mosquitoes like dark places and carbon dioxide. This mosquito trap will then start working.

Two women were at a bar. One looked at the other and said, "You know, 80 percent of all men think the best way to end a fight is to make love." "Well," said the other, "that will certainly revolutionize hockey and wrestling!"
