He had wonderful, innovative ideas that were, for the most part accepted by the congregation. His mentor - a "higher ranking" priest came for a visit - to see how he was doing. After looking the parish over, the senior priest said, "Father John, your idea of a drive through confessional is wonderful. That makes it convenient for your church members. And, Father John, it was a really good idea to have the confessional open 24 hours a day, for those who do shift work. However, Father John... that flashing neon sign that says "TOOT and TELL or GO to HELL" ... well, that has to go. ______________________________________________________ A friend was laid up at home with the flu. His fiancee called and volunteered to come over and fix dinner and play nursemaid to him. He declined, not wanting to pass on the flu to her. "Okay honey", she told him, "We'll wait till after we get married. Then we can spend the rest of our lives making each other sick!" ______________________________________________________ This was heard on a public transportation vehicle while in Orlando. "When you exit this vehicle, please be sure to lower your head and watch your step. If you fail to do so, please lower your voice and watch your language. Thank you." ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Ebert Caballero, 25, Miamio-Dade County, Florida Florida burglar hit by woman with with metal rod after she caught him ransacking her apartment. A South Florida woman attacked a burglar Sunday afternoon after she caught him ransacking her apartment, authorities said. The incident was reported just before 2 p.m. at the Futura Condominiums at 401 NW 72nd Ave. According to an arrest report, the victim was walking toward her apartment with her daughter and her daughter's babysitter when they noticed that the front door was open. Police said the babysitter and the girl went inside, saw Ebert Caballero, 25, searching through the girl's bedroom and ran outside screaming, "there's a man in the house." The mother, armed with a silver rod, went inside and saw Caballero inside her bedroom with her safe open and money in his hand, the report said. The woman told detectives that she had $500 inside the safe. Police said the woman struck Caballero with the rod, rattling his marbles and causing a cut on his ear. Police said Caballero dropped the money and a knife on the woman's bed and ran outside. A neighbor who heard the commotion went outside and held Caballero down until police arrived. Caballero was arrested on charges of grand theft and armed burglary. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Daniel Re: Screen won't open fully Dear Webby, my screen won't open full left to to bottom is there a fix for this daniel Dear Daniel Sounds like your settings are for old style 4:3 ratio, not the sawed off modern style. Go into settings and pick a different one until you like what you get. It lets you preview each setting, and unless you tell it that you want to keep what you are trying, it will automatically go back to what you had before. Once you have a setting, that you like, write it down. Chances are that whatever game changed the settings on you, will do it again. Then you will need those numbers again. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Secretly Budget Pasta By attosa [256 Posts, 572 Comments] I call this Secretly Budget Pasta because I make it when I'm short on funds. This recipe is super quick and cheap, but the outcome is something fancy and delicious. Enjoy! Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 17 minutes Total Time: 22 minutes Yield: 2 servings Ingredients: 1/2 onion, sliced 1 crown broccoli, cut into pieces 1 cup mushrooms, sliced 1 large tomato, diced 1 large garlic clove, minced spaghetti or any pasta for two 1 Tbsp chicken or beef granulated stock Steps: Bring a pot of water to boil. Cook spaghetti as directed to al dente. Secretly Budget Pasta Warm up a pan to medium high with a bit of oil. Add all your vegetables except for the tomato. Fry until lightly browned and softened, about 5 minutes, Stir often. Drain pasta but reserve the water it was boiled in. Add pasta to vegetables. Add the granulated stock and the diced tomato. Add some of the reserved pasta water to the mix a tablespoon at a time. The starch in the water helps create a beautiful thick sauce, and picks up all the yummy browned vegetable bits at the bottom of your pan. To finish up, add salt and pepper to taste. I like mine with a bit of cheese and hot sauce. ;)
I think he failed the test :)
____________________________________________________ My Favorite Animal Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken." She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad what happened and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again. The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was. I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again. I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn’t like it when I am. Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous military person I admired most. I told her, "Colonel Sanders." Guess where the hell I am now? ____________________________________________________ "We apologise for the error in the last edition, in which we stated that 'Mr Fred Nicolme is a Defective in the Police Force'.

Research had been going on for many years as to the invention of the toothbrush. Researchers knew the purpose of the device, wanted to know and acknowledge the originating location. After a very long and exasperating study the researchers came to their conclusion as to the origin of the toothbrush. It was decided that the brush was invented in Maine. Intrigued with the discovery, the researchers were asked by the media how they came to the conclusion. They all agree it was simple deduction, "If it was invented anywhere else, it would have been called a teethbrush."
