Naturally, we did not talk all the time. In the midst of a kiss, I noticed her little sister in her nightgown watching us from the top of the stairway. I told her: "If you will be a good girl and go to bed, I will give you a quarter." Without taking the bribe or saying a word, she ran off but soon was back again. "Here is a dollar," she said. "I wanna watch." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ There was this bank where the employees went on strike leaving the bank officers to do the teller's tasks.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Amanda Willis 35, Charlotte County, Florida Maid of honor turns Florida wedding into nightmare It was supposed to be the best day of their life. Instead, their maid of honor got arrested and is facing several charges from a wedding day gone wrong. The Charlotte County ceremony has been described as beautiful, but when the reception kicked off, guests said the maid of honor Amanda Willis hit the bottle hard — and almost hit the best man with his own car. The wedding pictures tell the story of a content couple, Brian and Jennifer Butler. They had their cake and first dance while Willis started drinking. “She was a mess. She drank almost a whole entire bottle of Fireball,” said guest Robert Templeton. “She was drunk within 20 minutes to half an hour,” said Jennifer Butler. Willis started asking people for their keys, according to those in attendance. “She just went up to the best man and grabbed his keys out of his pocket and jumped in his car,” said Templeton. Willis backed out and almost hit the best man — Brian’s brother, who grabbed on to the car, according to WBBH-TV. “She took off, and his feet were dragging across the ground. He had to hit the E-brake,” said Templeton. Guests wrestled Willis out of the car. “She went back inside. She grabbed up the big bottle of Captain Morgan and just guzzled it like this,” said Jennifer Butler. Then they say she got violent. “As soon as I turned around, she came up and cracked me upside of the face,” said Templeton. He said he swung back before he knew what was happening, and the deputies were called. “It was insane. Absolutely insane,” said Jena Templeton. Deputies said Willis claimed to be having an asthma attack and started shaking as if she were having a seizure. They took her to Bayfront Punta Gorda, where she exposed herself to deputies, assaulted two medics and kicked over her bed pan, according to the sheriff’s office. “She had her be her maid of honor, and it was a bad decision,” said Robert Templeton. While Willis was supposed to be the bride’s best friend, Jennifer Butler said the two are no longer friends. This arrest is Willis’ ninth in Charlotte County. She faces charges of larceny, battery, grand theft of a motor vehicle, and violation of probation. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ron Re: Spam concern Dear Webby, I am a recipe collector. I am a member of several different cooking and recipe ezines, much like yours. There are a great deal of recipe web sites as you know. Some do not ask for your email address, however I have run across a couple that look to be good sites but they ask me for my email address and a bit about me, but they are not offering a weekly mailing. Am I likely to get spyware from these type of sites. How about commercial recipe sites i.e. Kraft, Nabisco and so forth, do these companies waste time spamming and putting spyware on these sites? Perhaps this is a dumb question, but I have my machine cleaned up and am trying to keep it fairly clean. Thank you for the suggestion of switching from Norton to McAfee, I am amazed at the difference of what got through. Thank you Ron Dear Ron The big and well known outfits are normally quite legit. When they have something to lose, they toe the line. With unknown ones I would be a lot more careful. Just give them a disposable hotmail address and put a forward into the ho'mail to go to your earthlink address. If that hotmail address becomes a nuisance, dump it. You can set up a forwarding address for each subscription. Subscribe with for example grandrecipes234"hotmail.com, then set that hotmail address to forward to your normal earthlink address. That way, if you get a lot of spam sent to that address, then you know that GrandRecipes has sold your address to the swine. If you still like their recipes, just use MailWasher to make a filter that dumps everything sent to that address but does not have recipe in the body of the mail. MailWasher is still at http://webby.com/mailwasher Have FUN! DearWebby
The judge read the charges, then asked, "Are you the defendant in this case?" "No sir, your honor, sir," replied Jill, "I've got a lawyer to do the defendin'. I'm the person who done it."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Sorting Dirty Clothing Put a cardboard divider in your clothes hamper and use one side for whites and one for darks. Then when your family puts clothes in, they will already be sorted. Towels and sheets can also go on the white side if you have more dark clothes in family. This has worked very well in my household for several years. By Hazel

A man started to snore in his seat in church. "Please stop snoring,Sir." the usher pleaded. "You are disturbing the others." "Look, buddy," the man said angrily, "I donated enough to this church that I probably own this whole pew, not just this seat, and I'll do whatever I want." "Yes Sir," said the usher. "But you are keeping everybody awake."
