Give this a try. BAKED STUFFED CHICKEN 6-7 lb. chicken 1 cup melted butter 1 cup stuffing 1 cup uncooked popcorn salt/pepper to taste small plastic bag and duck tape Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush chicken well with melted butter, salt and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing. Put the popcorn into a small heavy duty plastic bag and seal it thoroughly with duck tape. Tape up the chest opening of the chicken with duck tape. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the front of the oven. Listen for popping sounds. When the chicken blows the oven door open and the chicken flies across the room, it is done. And, you thought I couldn't cook ! ______________________________________________________ Walking up to a department store's fabric counter, a pretty girl asked: "I want to buy this material for a new dress. How much does it cost?" "Only a kiss a yard, " replied the smirking male clerk. "That's fine," replied the girl. "I'll take ten yards." With expectation and anticipation written all over his face, the clerk hurriedly measured out and wrapped the cloth, then held it out teasingly. The girl snapped up the package and pointed to a little old lady standing nearby. "Grandma will pay the bill," she smiled. ______________________________________________________ From widelec.org ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Erne Jean Delva, 32, Princeton, Floriduh Floriduh Highway Patrol stop reveals warrant for cocaine dealing charges A traffic stop resulting in a minor pot bust snowballed for a Princeton man and landed him in county jail on felony cocaine dealing charges after the Florida Highway Patrol trooper who pulled him over discovered two outstanding bench warrants for the man’s arrest. The FHP trooper pulled over Erne Jean Delva, 32, in his “dark-colored sedan” driving southbound on U.S. 1 at mile marker 92, according to the trooper’s Nov. 2 incident report. The trooper wrote that he pulled the car over because it “hit the outside line” of the highway several times. When the trooper walked up to the driver’s side window, he “smelled a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from within the vehicle.” When asked by the trooper if there was pot in the car, Delva replied that the car wasn’t his and he didn’t know what was in it. “During the search of the vehicle, I found a clear bag containing a green leafy substance inside a tobacco resealable pouch in the center console,” the trooper wrote. “Mr. Delva was placed under arrest for possession of marijuana.” The trooper conducted a computer search of Delva’s records, which revealed he had a bench warrant for sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school and use of a two-way device to facilitate a felony. In addition to the cocaine charges, Delva was also booked on misdemeanor marijuana possession. He’s being held on a total bond of $106,000. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Mia Re: Yahoo Lists Dear Webby, I am subscribed to a few lists on Yahoo, and lately one after the other seemed to have been taken over by some hacker that sent out a message about a proxy-relay trojan and a password to use for getting information about getting back on. The mails had the usual Yahoo Groups sponsor ads on top, something I doubt that a hacker would leave in place, but the grammar in the message was definitely low class, which would point to a hacker. Below the weird message, there were the usual dozen ads abd links that normally are on those newsletters. Naturally I did not click on anything. I am worried though. Since these lists are in no way connected to each other, except that they are all ad suported freebie lists on Yahoo, does that mean Yahoo has been hacked ? How does that affect my Yahoo mail? If they can hack into the lists, can they get to my mail? Mia Yes, if a bunch of different lists were affected, then that would indeed indicate hacker activity. Yahoo mail may be a bit more reliable than hotmail, but it is not really something that anybody should consider as secure. It's mainly a toy for people, who want to disguise themselves. Just becasue Hillary and Huma used it, that does not mean it is secure. That is why their mails are all over the Internet. Your only defense there is toONLY use Yahoo mail for those lists, and never link to your proper email or anything, that might benefit a hacker. Just get an email address based on your ISP, or a Gmail address for your proper email. Have FUN! DearWebby Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year and every year Morris would say, "Esther, I'd like to ride in that airplane." Esther always replied, "I know Morris, but that airplane ride costs 50 dollars, and ya know, 50 dollars is 50 dollars." One year Morris and Esther went to the fair and Morris said, "Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that airplane I might never get another chance." Esther replied, "Morris, that airplane ride costs 50 dollars, and ya know, 50 dollars is 50 dollars." The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take you both up for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won't charge you; but if you say one word it's 50 dollars." Morris and Esther agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word was heard. He did all his tricks over again, but still not a word. When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris and said, "By golly,I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn't." Morris replied, "Well, I was gonna say something when Esther fell out, but ya know, 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

Many thanks Rikka Dear Rikka, it's a bit long, but here it is: The Letter from Gramma: The other day I went up to a local Christian bookstore and saw a "honk if you love Jesus" bumper sticker. I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting, so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper. I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good He is and I didn't notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed! I found that LOTS of people love Jesus! Why, while I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, "For the love of GOD! GO! GO! Jesus Christ, GO!" What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone started honking! I just leaned out of my window and started waving and smiling at all these loving people. I even honked my own horn a few times to share in the love! There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a "sunny beach"... I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. I asked my teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant. He said that it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something. Well, I've never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign back. My grandson burst out laughing...why, even he was enjoying this religious experience! A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed. So, I waved to all my sisters and brothers, grinning of course, and drove on through the intersection. I noticed I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and I felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared, so I slowed the car down, leaned out of the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks! Grandma ____________________________________________________
