Yes, sure. A perennial favorite: Swampy Marsh, the young Australian father-to-be, is waiting anxiously outside the maternity ward where his wife is having their first baby. He is pacing the floor when the nurse comes out and says, "You have a little boy, Mr. Marsh, but you had better go out and have a cup of coffee, because there may be another one." Swampy turns a little pale and leaves. Some time later he phones the hospital and is told that he is the father of twins, but the nurse cautions, "There is another one on the way, so call back later." At that Swampy decides that coffee is not strong enough, so he goes to a bar and has some beer. When he phones the hospital again he is told that the third baby has arrived and a fourth one is on the way. White-faced, he stumbles to the bar and orders a double scotch. Twenty minutes later, he tries to phone again, but he is so drunk that he dials the wrong number and gets the recorded cricket game score. When they pick him up off the floor the recording is still going strong: "The score is ninety-six all out," says the voice, "and the last one was a duck." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment: Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it. The next day the kids came back and one by one began to tell their stories. "Johnny, do you have a story to share?" "Yes, ma'am, my daddy told a story about my Aunt Carol. Aunt Carol was a pilot in Desert Storm and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory and all she had was a small flask of whiskey, a pistol and a survival knife. She drank the whiskey on the way down so it wouldn't fall into enemy hands and then her parachute landed right in the middle of twenty enemy troops. She shot fifteen of them with the gun until she ran out of bullets, killed four more with the knife, 'til the blade broke and then she killed the last one with her bare hands." "Good heavens," said the horrified teacher, "What kind of moral did your daddy teach you from that horrible story?" "Stay the heck away from Aunt Carol when she's been drinking." ______________________________________________________ From FB Imagine the racket they make! ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Juan Brian Jetter-Clark, 23, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Burglar caused home owner to get shot and killed by cops "They shot the wrong guy," the victim's ex-wife said. Police fatally shot an armed Pittsburgh man inside his home Sunday as officers responded to a call about a burglary in progress, authorities said. Christopher Thompkins ex-wife, Brenda Richmond, said the nightmare began around 4 a.m. when the couple woke to a stranger standing in their bedroom. "I opened my eyes and a man was standing there above us," Richmond, 51, who had reconciled with her ex-husband years ago, told the Pittsburg Post-Gazette. Richmond said Thompkins, 57, asked for her handgun, which was licensed to her. The burglar fled their room, but she said Thompkins became concerned for his elderlyblind and disabled mother who was sleeping downstairs. "He was just saying, 'My mom, my mom,'" she told The Tribune Review. "That's all he was worrying about." Thompkins hurried down their homes staircase and opened fire at the burglar. Two officers, who were about to attempt to enter the home after receiving a call about a possible burglary in progress shot through the closed door without warning and killed Thompkins. Richmond said that she wasn't aware that a security alarm had been tripped, alerting local police. She later called 911 herself after climbing out onto her house's roof, she told the Post-Gazette. Suspect Juan Brian Jetter-Clark, 23, was taken into custody at the scene for criminal trespass, police said. "They shot the wrong guy," Richmond told the Tribune. "He didn't want to hurt no cops. He was trying to save his mother." Speaking to the Post-Gazette, she said she realizes that officers were just trying to do their job. "They heard somebody shooting, they shoot," she said. Still, she said she wishes that "the protocol can be made better." Theoretically they should have announced their presence, not just shot through the door. According to the Post-Gazette, Thompkins spent 10 years in prison for the shooting death of another man during a domestic dispute involving Richmond. The couple was married at the time of the 1994 shooting but had been separated for a month. Richmond said Thompkins "was not the same man today that he was back then." In a statement, police said that the two officers involved have been placed on administrative leave. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Martin Re: Capturing pictures from PowerPoint Presentrations Dear Webby I'd just like to capture the picture, not the drivel. Some would make great wallpaper. Ideas?

Hit ESC out ALT TAB to get out of the PPS and into PSP CTRL V to open the capture as a picture ALT TAB back into the PPS and so on. ALT TAB jumps you from the open application to the one you were in just before, and you can jump back and forth easily. However, ALT TAB is quite literal. It jumps to the previous one, not the one before that. To avoid jumping from PSP to your mail, temporarily drag the PPS file onto the desktop and open it from there. Have FUN! DearWebby
>From Wayne During a recent business trip to Boeing's Everett, Washington factory, I noticed several 747 and 777 airliners being assembled. Before the engines were installed, huge weights were hung from the wings to keep the planes balanced. The cast iron weights were bright yellow and black and marked, "14,000 lbs." But what I found particularly interesting was some stenciling I discovered on the side of each weight. Imprinted there was the warning: "Remove before flying."

Daily tip from Gluten Free Lemon Bars By Ida Claire [10 Posts, 20 Comments] Total Time: 40 minutes Yield: 9-12 depending on how you cut them Source: Bethel Methodist Church cookbook Ingredients: Crust 1/2 cup butter-softened 1/3 cup sugar 1 cup gluten free Bisquick Pam cooking spray Filling 3/4 cup sugar 2 eggs 3 Tbsp gluten free Bisquick zest from 1 large lemon juice from 1 large lemon Topping powdered sugar Steps: Combine softened butter, sugar and gluten free Bisquick in a bowl and mix together until it resembles coarse crumbs. Spray a 9x9 inch baking dish with Pam. Be sure to get the sides sprayed well too. Press crumb mixture into the bottom of dish. Pack down well, especially around the edges. Bake this at 350 degrees F for 15-17 minutes until edges are brown. While this is cooking mix the eggs, sugar and Bisquick together in a bowl. Grate lemon peel from a large lemon and then juice the lemon and add to mixture. Beat on medium speed until blended. Once the crust is finished cooking, pour the wet mixture on top of crust. Be sure to stir the mixture up real good right before pouring over crust. Return to oven and continue baking until top is golden; about 20 minutes. When done remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. While still hot, take a spatula and gently go around the edges of the dish. This will make removal easier once it has cooled. Once it is cooled, cut into squares and enjoy!
