______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dekota Locklear, 18, Lumberton, NC Teen stole cop car after being cuffed for drunk driving A North Carolina teen humiliated three NYPD cops early Sunday by escaping a Manhattan DWI checkpoint in a police cruiser — despite having been tossed into the back seat with his hands cuffed behind his back, law enforcement sources said. Police brass were weighing disciplinary action against the two cops whose marked patrol car was stolen and taken on a joyride, then ditched about 12 miles away in Yonkers, the sources said. “Somebody’s getting suspended,” one high-ranking police source said. But the cops claim they were ordered by a sergeant to leave Dekota Locklear, 18, alone in the car — which had no divider between the front and back — before hauling him off to the 33rd Precinct station house in Washington Heights. “The sergeant wanted to get another arrest. He told them to put Locklear in the car,” said a source familiar with the incident. “It was cold out and they left the engine on because they didn’t want him to freeze,” the source added. “It was all under the sergeant’s orders and there weren’t enough people to do a checkpoint.” A law enforcement source said Sunday night that the sergeant and both cops were under investigation for the debacle. The caper, which could have come straight out of “The Dukes of Hazzard,” began unfolding around 2 a.m. at 158th Street and the Henry Hudson Parkway. Dekota Locklear in an undated Facebook photoFacebook Locklear, of Lumberton, NC, was stopped while driving a black 2008 Hyundai through the checkpoint and placed under arrest for having bloodshot eyes and failing a sobriety test, sources said. While in the back seat of the police car, Locklear maneuvered his hands in front of his body, then allegedly slipped into the driver’s seat and took off. “He climbed over the seat and took the vehicle,” court papers state. The NYPD used GPS technology to find the cruiser abandoned near the Saw Mill River Parkway in Yonkers. One of its sides had been damaged in a collision, according to police sources. The car was left in a parking space hidden by trees on Saw Mill River Road, a neighbor said. Following its discovery, about 50 cops with search dogs and high-powered lights beat the bushes in the heavily wooded area, according to the neighbor. Locklear — who has a lengthy rap sheet, including a kidnapping charge in North Carolina — was busted nearby around 4:10 a.m., according to police sources. He was charged with a slew of crimes, including grand larceny and reckless endangerment. The teen was arraigned Sunday night and ordered held in lieu of $50,000 bond. The suspect’s Facebook account features photos that show him flashing gang signs and holding firearms. He was traveling with an unidentified 13-year-old boy at the time of his arrest, sources said. It was unclear what happened to the kid. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Farah Re: Re: Leaving mail on the server Dear Webby, Dear Webby, I have to go to the East for four days to a conference and asked my ISP if I can read my mail from there but leave it on the server till I get back to my home machine. I have done that with other ISP's before and they were quite OK with it as long as I told them before each trip. This one went right hysterical and she threatened to cut me off if I get caught doing that. Have there been any changes regarding mail that I am not aware of? Farah Dear Farah The only change is that some ISP's hire dumber boneheads than they used to. Considering how silly that one is, I doubt that they can even tell if you have checked your mail. All they can see is the total size of your mailbox. Most hotel guest machines and cybercafe machines are set to "leave mail on the server" and not to delete it. Just use them like that and then download and delete the mail off the server when you get back home. I would be willing to bet that they won't notice that for those 4 days. And with THAT ISP, don't waste your time telling them about any trips that you go on. Have FUN! DearWebby
When Sam returned to the house one evening, his wife Sarah announced that the new cleaning woman they had hired had stolen two towels. "Yeah," said Sam very disinterested, and reclining on the sofa, "that wasn't very nice of her to do." "It certainly wasn't," Sarah said. "And they were the best towels we had... the ones we got from the Hotel when we were on vacation."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Bean and Bacon Soup Souper quick and souper easy ;-) Ingredients: 6 strips bacon 1 small celery stalk, finely chopped 1 medium onion, finely chopped 4 tsp. minced garlic 2 (15 oz.) cans white kidney beans, not drained 2 cups water 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped salt and pepper, to taste Directions: Cook the bacon in a large saucepan over medium heat until crisp, about 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer bacon with a slotted spoon to a paper or cloth towel, let cool and break into small pieces. Return the saucepan with bacon drippings to medium heat, add the celery, onion, and garlic and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until celery and onion are just tender, stirring well. Add the beans and water and bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes. Uncover and partially mash the bean mixture until it thickens slightly. Stir in the parsley, bacon, salt, and pepper to taste and serve. By Deeli from Richland, WA

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Diana for this one: Jack was sitting in an airplane when another guy took the seat beside him. The new guy was an absolute wreck, pale, hands shaking, biting his nails and moaning in fear. "Hey, pal, what's the matter?" Jack asked "Oh man... I've been transferred to California," the other guy answered, there's crazy people in California and they have shootings, gangs, race riots, drugs, the highest crime rate..." "Hold on," Jack interrupted, "I've lived in California all my life, and it is not as bad as the media says. Find a nice home, go to work, mind your own business, enroll your kids in a good school and it's as safe as anywhere in the world." The other passenger relaxed and stopped shaking for a moment and said, "Oh, thank you. I've been worried to death, but if you live there and say it's OK, I'll take your word for it. What do you do for a living?" "Me?" said Jack, "I'm a tail gunner on a bread truck in Oakland." ____________________________________________________

>From Susan: In the early 1990's, when I was stationed at Caserna Carlo Ederle in Italy, it was very common to see soldiers riding bicycles back and forth to work. So it came as no big surprise that, after a series of painfully comic accidents, a new policy was announced, saying in summary, "Soldiers shall no longer salute officers who are engaged in the riding of a bicycle."
