Instead of slowing down, she picked up speed. When she looked back again, their were two motorcycles following her. She shot up to 90 miles. The next time she looked around, there were three cops following her. Suddenly, she spotted a gas station looming ahead. She screeched to a stop and ran into the ladies' room. Ten minutes later, she innocently walked out. The three cops were standing there, waiting for her. Without batting an eye, she said coyly, "I'll bet none of you thought I would make it." "That's right, Ma'am," one of them said. "That's why each one of us needs your autograph." And they held out their ticket pads for her to sign. ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ The Rev.

______________________________________________________ Reported by Wayne An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Danielle L. Miller, 31, Providence, Pennsylvania Evil stepmother arrested in Pennsylvania for torturing 4 year old stepp-son A stepmom in Pennsylvania has been arrested relating to claims she abused her 4-year-old stepson by beating and burning the toddler and feeding him adult laxatives and hot sauce. 31-year-old Danielle L. Miller of Providence Township, Pennsylvania is still in jail on a $300,000 bond. Nathan P. Duke, the boy's dad, is also incarcerated on $100,000 bail. He is charged with failing to stop or report the abuse, which may have been ongoing for as long as a year. The investigation began when a family member showed law enforcement pictures of the boy with bruises and injuries across his body. Medical experts determined most of the injuries were intentionally inflicted or suspicious burns. The criminal complaint noted the injuries were "too numerous to be explained by normal childhood activity and clearly indicative of inflicted trauma." One witness claimed she saw Miller verbally and physically abuse the boy every day for about three months. Miller made the toddler eat poop beans,¯ which contained adult laxatives and then pour hot sauce in his mouth, and not give him water for 15 minutes. The witness also claimed Miller would play mermaid, that is, wrapping up the legs with a sheet and duct tape and confining him, and the boy also wore soiled pull-ups for hours at a time. It also appears that the stepmom locked the boy in a padded room, a closet, and then tortured him by scratching the wall and saying the "rats would come and get him." Miller also regularly cursed at the toddler, yelling: "I'm gonna kick your ass. You are a f–ing pig, You nasty ass hole,¯ and You have a stupid, f–ing, ugly faace." Charges of aggravated assault, false imprisonment, unlawful restraint, endangering the welfare of a child, terroristic threats, reckless endangerment, and harassment have been filed against Miller. Duke faces charges of conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child, because he knew about it and did not stop or report the abuse. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Corey Re: Does a screensaver slow down a download? Dear Webby, Does a screensaver slow down a long download ? Corey Dear Corey If you use one of the standard screensavers, that come with Windows, except for the slide show, then they won't slow down a download. If you use third party screensavers, you will have to test them and see. Most don't affect downloads, but some, especially slide show type screensavers, do access the hard drive and could slow down your downloads. Have FUN! DearWebby
A sixth grade class is doing some spelling drills. The teacher asks Tommy if he can spell 'before.' He stands up and says, "Before, B-E-P-H-O-R." The teacher says, "No, that's wrong. Can anyone else spell before?" Another little boy stands up and says, "Before, B-E-F-O-O-R." Again the teacher says, "No, that's wrong."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cheese Lover's Treat By likekinds [238 Posts, 1,102 Comments] I use to make a wicked baked macaroni and cheese, with two kinds of cheese for the macaroni and a third for the topping. On one occasion I baked that and an apple cake based on a carrot cake recipe, that Mama took to a church social. When I picked her up, I asked how the macaroni and cake tasted. She said, "I don't know. It was all gone before I got to taste either". I don't cook like that anymore. Anything I cook now is usually quick and easy. When I did cook macaroni, I let the cheese topping get a little brown and crusty around the edges. To me, that was the best part of the dish. With that in mind, I contrived a little snack I can't get enough of; simple, quick and delicious. Sooo good, people. And if you were doing this for breakfast, you could put scrambled eggs atop the snack once it has finished cooking. Much, much better than scrambled eggs with the cheese just melted on top or mixed in when scrambling. Go for it, y'all! Steps: Cut French bread into about 3/4 to an inch slices. Put a thin film of mayonnaise on one side of each. Put the slices in a non stick pan greased with melted butter, mayo side up. Then sprinkle a hefty layer of finely grated cheddar cheese on top. Watch and check closely. When the bread has toasted to a nice golden brown on the bottom, flip it over. With the cheese on the bottom, you have to work quickly. In less than a minute, the cheese will turn a rich, crusty brown, just like on the macaroni. Immediately remove from the pan onto a ready plate.

The owner asks why she doesn't buy it from Goldstein's, and she says because they just ran out of them. The owner then says, "Ha! Their price I beat! They're only $29.95 when I'm out of them!" ___________________________________________________

A police car pulls up in front of Aunt Gertrude's house, and Uncle Leo gets out. The polite policeman explained that this elderly gentleman said that he was lost in the park and couldn't find his way home. "Oh Leo", said Aunt Gertrude, "You've been going to that park for over 30 years! How could you get lost?" Leaning close to Aunt Gertrude, so that the policeman couldn't hear, Uncle Leo whispered, "I wasn't lost. I was just too tired to walk home."
