As he walked further he fell off the side of a cliff and just as he fell, he reached and grab a tree branch. He thought for sure he was going to die, but he remember learning as a child: when you're in trouble call on God. So he called up to Heaven, "Lord are you up there?" A few seconds go by and not a word from heaven. The man calls again, "Lord are you up there?" And again the lord did not response. This time the man made a promise to God, "if you are there I will serve you if you help me." The Lord responded and said, "my son do you trust me?" "Yes," replied the man. The Lord ask him again, "my son do you trust me"? "Yes I do", replied the man. God said, "let the branch go." A few seconds of silence go by, and the man yelled, "is there anybody else up there?" ______________________________________________________ A man went to the Police Station wishing to speak with the burglar who had broken into his house the night before.

I've been trying to do that for ten years!" ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Gary Holmes, 33, Little Rock, Arkansas. Arkansas man arrested after he shot and murdered a 3 year old in his gramma's car. Police say they've captured the man accused of shooting and killing a 3-year-old boy during an apparent road rage case in Little Rock, Arkansas. Gary Holmes, 33, faces capital murder and terroristic act charges in connection with the shooting, Pulaski County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Cody Burk said. Gary Holmes is accused of killing 3-year-old Acen King. The arrest comes almost a week after Acen King was gunned down in the back seat of his grandmother's car. The shooting sparked a community outcry, and police had offered a $40,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case. The boy's grandmother told police the incident began when a man in a car behind her at a stop sign started honking his horn, apparently upset she wasn't moving quickly enough. The grandmother honked her horn, too. Then, police said, the man got out of his black Chevrolet Impala and fired into her car. "One shot was fired, and it went through the vehicle and hit the child," said Lt. Steven McClanahan, Little Rock police spokesman. Not realizing that the boy had been hit, the woman drove to a J.C. Penney about nine miles away. When she went to get him out of the car, she saw that her grandson was wounded, according to a police incident report. "She didn't know he was shot," a bystander told the 911 operator after speaking with the grandmother. One of the callers, describing what happened, to the 911 operator, said the grandmother feverishly performed CPR after the child sustained a neck wound. The boy was transferred to the Arkansas Children's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. A 1-year-old child was also in the car at the time of the shooting, according to the police report. Police said they believe the grandmother and the slain boy had no relationship with the gunman. Since the killer had gotten out of his car to shoot the baby, he will face first degree murder chrges.

Sorry you had a problem but worried because if they can get you what can I do to prevent. turned off auto updates, maybe that will help. I go into withdrawals without you every day. Marlene Dear Marlene Marlene, use a good back-up program, NOT THE ONE FROM MICROSLOP! I found out today that you can get a 64 GB camera chip at Staples for under $20. Back up onto that every night. Only then are you safe. You probably don`t have more than 64 GB worth of irreplaceable stuff. No point backing up programs, since you would have to download and do a fresh install anyway. Just the data, Ma'am! Have FUN! DearWebby
If a man is in the forest, all alone, and there isn't a woman around for ten miles, is he still wrong? No, not if he keeps his mouth shut.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Bowl Scraper When Making Scrambled Egg By gem [155 Posts, 265 Comments] Tired of wasting good eggs to the edges of your frying pan and having a real mess to clean up? Let's face it, scrambled eggs seem to leave a film around the outer edge every time you cook them and I won't go into the detail of having them swim around in the dish water. Well here is how I dealt with the problem and the clean up is a snap. Instead of using a spatula, that doesn't take the eggs off the sides of the pan, I use a rubber bowl scraper. If your heat isn't super high, this will solve all your problems. You can buy usually 3 bowl scrapers in a pack for about a dollar almost anywhere. I have found this technique doesn't hurt the scraper and you will have two added benefits. One is that you use all the egg because the scraper is shaped to follow the edges of the pan. Secondly your cleanup is a snap. So next time you scramble eggs try this little technique and find out how very simple and easy it is.
