His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free. 3. He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it. 4.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Craig Samuel Coe, 32, Fort Myers, Floriduh Floriduh man attacks girlfriend with taser, toilet plunger, pepper spray and sword in front of her kids A Southwest Florida woman claims her boyfriend pepper sprayed her, tased her and attacked her with a sword and a toilet plunger in front of her kids. Craig Samuel Coe, 32, is facing several charges including aggravated battery, illegal possession of a weapon, kidnapping and child neglect. Fort Myers police responded to a domestic dispute early Friday morning at the Waterford Apartments. Police say Coe viciously attacked his girlfriend Jasmine Meyer during a jealousy fueled rage. According to the police report, Coe's verbal assault turned physical when he pepper sprayed Meyer, then punched her in the face. That's when Meyer grabbed her two young kids and tried to leave. Coe stopped Meyer by hitting her with a sword sheath and sword. Meyer's daughter also got hit. She was bleeding when officers arrived. The fighting left Meyer with "deep cuts, a bloody nose, bruises, and knots on her forehead." Meyer eventually escaped to a neighbor's apartment, where she called police. Officers later found an assault rife and a bag of ammunition in the apartment. Neighbors telling Four In Your Corner that the two often argued. Coe has previous convictions for grand theft, burglary and drug possession. Meyer did not wish to comment on the incident Wednesday. She did tell Fox4 that she has hired an attorney. The Department of Children and Families may also be getting involved. Very nice hots ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Denise Re: Is Scanguard a scam? Dear Webby, What are your thoughts on this: Is this Scanguard a scam? Denise Dear Denise Spammers are scammers. Dump it. Windows Defender, which is usually considered the lowest and least effective guard, is better than that stuff. Don't waste your time with it. Some people reported that it demands $49 per year to remove nonexistent malware, and that after a month it acts like ransomware on W10. It is definitely not in the same league as McAfee or Malwarebytes or Kaspersky. If they last a year, and do more than plaster advertising and fake reviews all over the net and late night TV, you might try it then. Right now the consensus is to stay away from it. If you can't afford McAfee or Kaspersky: For Vista or Windows 7 use MSE - Free. For Windows 8/8.1 and 10 use Windows Defender which in those OS's is a full antivirus (same as MSE). And use the Windows Firewall. Have FUN! DearWebby A woman with 14 children, ranging in age from one to fourteen, went to court to sue her husband for divorce on grounds of desertion. "When did he leave you?" the judge asked. "Thirteen years ago," the tired mother replied. The judge was confused. "Well, if he left thirteen years ago, where did all these children come from?" "Well," said the woman, "he kept coming back once a year to say he was sorry."

Daily tip from Cleaning Hard Water/Mineral Stains on Glassware Simple vinegar is what I use as we have such horrible water here in Greece. I fill a bucket or large container with water, add vinegar and leave overnight. You can also use hot water and it will work faster. I use vinegar in my electric hot water pot every week as well as in stainless steel pots and pans. I love vinegar and use it quite a lot around the house. I also squirt it on my balcony tiles to keep the ants away from the house!! Hope this helps. Guest (Guest Post) Use Lemi Shine! You just add it to your detergent and run the dishwasher as usual. I live in a VERY hard water area and I can tell you that it is the ONLY thing that works. By guest (Guest Post)
