This killed the cash registers, naturally, but the Navy always has a backup. The emergency intercom came on, and a loud female voice announced, "CASHIERS TAKE YOUR CRANKS OUT OF YOUR DRAWERS!" As if that alone was not funny enough, the cash register drawers, which had the little manual cranks inside them, needed electricity, OR those little cranks to open them. ______________________________________________________ "If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into Heaven?" the RevI asked the children in Sunday School class. "NO!" the children all answered. "If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get me into Heaven?" Again, the answer was, "NO!" "Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave candy to all the children, and loved my wife, would that get me into Heaven?" he asked them again. Again, they all answered, "NO!" "Well," he continued, "then how can I get into Heaven?" A five-year-old boy shouted out, "YOU GOTTA BE DEAD!" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Lillemor Mother-Of-Pearl clouds in Strömsund i Jämtland, Sweden. ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joseph Allen, 46, Largo, Floriduh Florida Man Arrested After Demanding That McDonald's Workers Turn Off "Christian Music" Playing Angered that “Christian music” was being played inside a McDonald’s, a Florida man cursed at employees and other patrons and demanded that they “turn it off and play Muslim and Hindu music,” according to cops who arrested the customer. Joseph Allen, 46, walked into the McDonald’s around 10:20 AM Tuesday and created “a threat to the safety of others,” according to a Largo Police Department report. Allen, cops say, “began cursing at customers and employees” due to the “Christian music” being played over speakers in the fast food restaurant (seen below). The “Christian music” to which Allen referred was apparently Christmas tunes. Allen, who appeared intoxicated, approached McDonald’s workers "in an aggressive manner," leaving the employees “in fear for their safety.” Police responding to a 911 call confronted Allen, who reportedly admitted to cursing at McDonald’s workers and customers. A search of Allen turned up a small bag of methamphetamine in a pants pocket. Seen above, Allen was booked into the county jail on disorderly conduct and narcotics possession charges. Allen, a convicted felon, is locked up in lieu of $2150 bond. His lengthy rap sheet includes busts for assault; robbery; grand theft; trespass; battery; disorderly intoxication; lewd and lascivious exhibition; distributing stolen property; criminal mischief; and carrying a concealed weapon. ---------- Excessive playing of Rudolph, the rednosed reindeer, Jingle Bells, etc. can get on one's nerves, but that music is more related to Rudolphians and believers in Shopmas, not Christianity. It is intended to make people of all faiths shopaholics, and is most definitely not enticing them to go to church. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ralph Re: File Explorer problem in W10 Dear Webby, Talking about W10 file explorer. I use it to backup my pictures to an external drive (I never took the time to learn your DOS shortcut). A curious thing happened which has never occurred before. I selected the directory ICON, COPIED and then PASTED in the destination directory. So far so good. However, upon reviewing the copied files, I got all my pictures plus the same file again with a “.file” extension (with the directory ICON) – they were empty so I deleted them. As a bonus, File Explorer would crash after so many deletes. Any idea why this is occurring or is this some more Microslop? Ralph Dear Ralph Yes, just routine Microslop. That kind of programming is typical for bath salt users. You won't get a believable excuse from Microslop. Try just CTRL - Drag. That does not screw up nearly as much or as badly as Copy / Paste Since you don't want to give DOS a chance, get a decent back-up program. NOT MICROSLOP BACKUP!!! A decent one, that allows you to back up to an external drive. Depending on the computer you got, the manufacturer may have a back-up program built in. DELL, for example has one. Have FUN! DearWebby
Overheard at a Computer Store: "I want a game capable of holding the interest of my six-year-old, but it's got to be simple enough for his father to play, too."

Daily tip from Hemming Jeans with Thick Seams By Elaine S. [39 Posts, 243 Comments] I have hemmed plenty of jeans in my time and broken a lot of needles. The following are tips to do it and save your needles. First of all, look for needles that are made specifically for hemming jeans. If your sewing machine has a jeans foot, use that too it allows several thicknesses of fabric underneath it. Secondly after you have pressed your double hem up, before you sew, take a hammer and pound the seam that is so thick (it is called a flat felled seam). I know this step sounds funny, but it works. As you are sewing along, when you come to a thick place and your presser foot won't allow you to go over it, insert a piece of cardboard about the thickness of two credit cards under the presser foot from the back. This allows you to "climb" the seam with ease. Lastly, sew very slowly and do not reverse. You are most likely to save needles using these hints. By Elaine S. from Near Cedar Rapids, IA

____________________________________________________ Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing their contract's sick-leave provisions. One morning at the bargaining table, the company's chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, "This man," he announced, "called in SICK yesterday!" There on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score. The silence in the room was broken by a union negotiator. "Wow," he said. "Think of what kind of score he could have had if he hadn't been sick!" ____________________________________________________
Awesome people in Winter!
A couple went shopping at the mall. They decided to go their separate ways and meet two hours later. The husband was at their appointed meeting place at the appointed time, but there was no sign of his wife. After waiting for half an hour, he started looking for her but couldn't find her in any of the stores she usually frequented. Finally, thoroughly tired of looking for her, he approached a beautiful lady on a mall bench. He smiled at her and said, "Please, talk to me! Quick!" She said, "Why?" "Because I've been looking for my wife all over this silly mall and I can't find her," the man replied. "How will talking to me help you find your wife? I have absolutely no idea what she looks like, much less where she is." "I didn't think you did. However, every time I start talking to a beautiful woman, my wife instantly appears! So, please flirt for 30 seconds."
