______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tammy Strickland, 38, Eagle Lake, Floriduh Florida woman stole hundreds of toys from Toys for Tots Tammy Strickland is facing charges of grand theft, 28 counts of providing false statement to obtain property, obtaining property by fraud and 164 counts of possessing counterfeit / fictitious identification. A 38-year-old Eagle Lake woman is facing serious charges after deputies said she illegally attempted to collect more than 100 toys from Toys for Tots. According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, Tammy Strickland used 140 fictitious children’s names and 28 fictitious adult names on falsified “Toys for Tots” applications. Strickland then picked up the toys and loaded them into a trailer Monday at the the Toys for Tots warehouse. She is facing charges of grand theft, 28 counts of providing false statement to obtain property, obtaining property by fraud and 164 counts of possessing counterfeit /fictitious identification. "Children in need. ‘Toys for Tots.’ These things are synonymous with Christmas," Polk Sheriff Grady Judd said. "Sadly, in this case, so is The Grinch. "Tammy Strickland spent a long time filling out fraudulent applications for nonexistent children to receive toys. Now she’ll be spending a lot of time in jail." Strickland is also facing 84 additional felony charges and 13 additional misdemeanor charges for providing a false statement. The 84 new charges relate to 13 fraudulent Toys for Tots applications she submitted to the organization in 2015. Detectives determined that 13 of the 15 applications she submitted in 2015 were for fake children and families -- 13 fictitious adults and 69 fictitious children. The previous charges were for the fake applications she submitted in 2016. Strickland is now facing a total of 248 felonies and 41 misdemeanors. Authorities said they first received a tip last month about Strickland. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Roland Re: Second monitor Dear Webby, My wife visited me at work and got all excited about the dual monitor setup here. Copying data from one spreadsheet on one monitor to another spreadsheet on the other was quite impressive to her, but when we were talking and the screensaver (Mystique) came on, and the olorful flares wafted smoothly from monitor to the other, she lost it and was hooting. Well, to make a long story short, on her way home she did some shopping at Costco, and also bought a second monitor and even a cable for it. By the time I got home, she had unpacked it, made room on her desk, WOW!, and connected it. However, it just showed the lame blue Windows background. She ahs Windows 7, set to Classical background. I didn't set my dual monitors up at work. The IT guy does stuff like that after our working hours. How do I get Windows to use both monitors? Roland Dear Roland Lame Blue sounds like it is working OK. Just drag stuff over there. If you want to swap left and right, hit Windows Key and P Yes, P. I know that makes no sense to us, but probably does to the 50,000 Taliban programmers behind Windows 7. Just hold down the Windows key, with the little Windows flag, and hit P There you can tell it to "Identify" That puts a huge 1 on one monitor and a 2 on the other. You can swap that, and make the other one the main monitor. Just don't tell your kids about that. Kids find it hilarious to swap 1 and 2 and get big sister or mom all flustered. Have FUN! DearWebby
At one of the last all girl schools in Dallas years ago, the instructor in a "Charm Course" was urging her students to give their escorts every chance to be gallant. "Remain seated in the truck until he has had time to step around and open the door for you." she said. Then, returning to reality she added, "But if the big oaf is in the restaurant flirting at the waitress, don't wait any longer."

Some brave and talented souls in this old world.
Having gone out for a large lunch with fellow workers, one health conscious young woman from our office was especially motivated to get to the gym after work. Paul, who had been drafted out of retirement to help out over the holidays, and who had also enjoyed a large meal, suggested that she run an extra lap for him. As she was leaving the office, she called to Paul, "Get ready to start huffing and puffing, 'cause I'll be on your lap in half an hour!"
