______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Temia Hairston and Michael Grace Sr Charlotte, North Carolina Parents of dead armed robber are mad his victim had a gun and that the place he robbed was not a gunfree zone, where only armed robbers are allowed to have guns. Michael Grace Jr, son of Temia Hairston and Michael Grace Sr., was shot and killed during an attempted armed robbery early Sunday morning. Police said Grace Jr and two other people tried to rob a Pizza Hut in the 3200 block of Freedom Drive. During the incident, an employee fired his own handgun and killed Grace Jr. Hairston said she learned of her son’s death on social media, and only got confirmation from police after contacting them first. The grieving mother said she has been left with dozens of questions about the situation that have thus far gone unanswered. “If there was to be a death, it was not the place of the employee at Pizza Hut. That is the place of law enforcement,” said Hairston. Hairston and Grace Sr acknowledged that their son was breaking the law by robbing the business, and said they definitely don’t condone what he did. “It was an act of desperation, but I do not believe that Michael would have hurt anyone,” said Hairston. They said Grace Jr had fallen on hard times and resorted to crime to provide for his own child. They also said their son used to work at the same Pizza Hut restaurant where the robbery happened. They maintain he never would have physically hurt anyone during the robbery. WBTV contacted the local restaurant and the Pizza Hut corporation public relations line. Neither have confirmed that Grace Jr has ever worked as an employee at the Freedom Drive Pizza Hut. CMPD officials have not confirmed the information either. The parents are angry that their son was shot and killed by an employee. They don’t believe the full story has been released to the public. “Why in the hell did this guy have a gun?” questioned Hairston about the employee who shot her son. She said her son was shot in the head, and she thinks the shooting may have even been personal, citing past conflicts Grace Jr had had with other employees at the restaurant. “This wasn’t a body shot. This was a head shot. My son was shot in the left side of his head just behind his ear. A headshot is personal,” said Hairston. Even though their son was in the process of committing a crime, the family thinks his death was undeserved and unjustified. “Even a criminal has a right to a degree,” said Grace Sr. The family said they want Pizza Hut to release more information about the situation and acknowledge that their son used to be a Pizza Hut employee. Pizza Hut previously released the following statement about the incident: "The local Pizza Hut franchisee is fully cooperating with the Charlotte Police Department as they continue their investigation, but want to stress that the security of its staff is of utmost concern. They are providing support to the team members involved to ensure their health and well-being following this incident. The employee involved in the shooting has been placed on a leave of absence following further review." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Don Re: Slow Outlook Dear Webby, I see that, in this issue, you help a subscriber with a computer problem. I would be eternally grateful if you could find a solution to my problem. Here goes: Recently one of my family updated my computer. Now, when I am using the Inbox for Microsoft Outlook there is a long (4-5 seconds) pause in between the time I highlight an entry and the time it is activated and appears on the screen. Do you have any suggestions on how to speed things up? Thanks, Don Dear Don First, check the date/time on your machine. You are living in the past. That causes mail from you to get sorted in among yesterday's already taken care of mail, and is found only by accident. I don't allow Outlook within 20 feet of any computer here, so I don't know that much about Outlook problems. However, I would suggest that you clean out your INbox and either transfer mails to different other mailboxes, or dump them. The leaner you keep the INbox, the faster ANY mail program runs. Have FUN!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Shampoo as Hand Soap Refill By Monique [110 Posts, 181 Comments] I have an alternative to replace pricey hand wash pumps. I use value supermarket brands of shampoo instead! I buy the cheap shampoos from the supermarket. Store branded hand wash start at about £1 a bottle. To begin with I was buying 500g Asda value shampoo for 30p until I saw in Tesco that they have a litre bottle of value shampoo for just 40p. I refilled an old pump dispenser with the shampoo and added a few drops of Tea Tree oil for its antibacterial qualities. A shake and a stir and then it's good to go! I use this to wash my hands so I have a pump by each sink in my home. On one photograph you can see how much of the shampoo was used to fill up the pump dispenser. My bottle (that was part of a Xmas present) is a standard 300g. So my 40 pence shampoo bottle will refill the bottle well over three times! I also use the shampoo to hand-wash my special jumpers and on occasion, to wash my smalls.

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Joann for this one: During my training as a medical-group receptionist, I was told never to recommend one of our doctors over another, but simply state who had available appointments. One day a woman came in and looked at me conspiratorially. "I'm a nurse," she whispered, "and I know the staff always knows which doctors are good and which aren't. Who do you think I should see?" Knowing my supervisor was listening close by, I tried to sound most professional. "Oh, I'm sorry," I replied. "I can't recommend any of our doctors." "Well, you must know!" she said, heading for the door. ____________________________________________________ Girlfriend: Two of the best things I cook best are meatloaf and apple pie. Boyfriend: Oh?
