The teacher was presiding over a discussion about the children's parents. One child said, "Well, my mother's a Catholic and my father's Jewish." "Oh, wow!" said another. "So what do you believe?" "I believe in everything," said the first child. "What do you mean 'everything'?" asked another child. "Well, you know," said the first child, "Jesus Christ, Moses, Santa, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fair, Monsters, everything." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Edwina for this one: A young couple got married and left on their honeymoon.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Robert Gill, 68, San Antonio, Drug dealer whose life sentence was commuted by Obama arrested on new drug charges A 68-year-old San Antonio man whose life prison sentence was commuted by President Barack Obama is back in jail after authorities say he crashed his car into another vehicle while fleeing from officers following a drug deal. A federal magistrate judge on Friday ordered Robert Gill held without bail pending a hearing later this month. Gill was arrested in 1990 and sentenced to life for cocaine and heroin distribution conspiracy. While in prison, he studied law and petitioned the president for a second chance. Obama commuted Gill’s sentence in 2015. The San Antonio Express-News reports he’d been working as a paralegal at a San Antonio law firm. He’s now charged with possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine. If convicted, Gill faces a potential sentence with a mandatory minimum of five years, but could get up to 40. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Gladys Re: Monitor Frequency Dear Webby Should the monitor frequency be set to the same as the household electricity (60 cycles)? Gladys Dear Gladys No, set it to any frequency BUT that. Especially with fluorecent lighting, that will appear as an unruly and flickering image. Chose the highest frequency that your video card / monitor combination can handle. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Mini Cheesy Heart Calzones By lalala... [795 Posts, 103 Comments] These mini heart shaped calzones are perfect for a Valentine's day party. They are easy to make and would be fun to make with your kids. Ingredients: canned pizza dough (thin crust) sliced mozzarella or Provolone egg white marinara sauce fork heart shaped cookie cutters (medium and small) flour rolling pin Steps: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Unroll canned pizza dough onto lightly floured cutting board. Flour other side of dough too. Using the medium heart cookie cutter, cut out as many pairs of hearts as possible. Remove excess dough from around the hearts. Set the excess dough aside. Using the small heart cookie cutter, cut out enough cheese hearts to fill each pair of dough hearts. Lay a cheese heart onto a dough heart, moisten the edges of the dough heart, and lay another dough heart on top. Use a fork to crimp the dough hearts together. Place the calzones onto a greased cookie sheet (or pizza stone). Brush the top of each calzone with egg white. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove any cheese that leaked out. Serve hot with a side of marinara sauce for dipping. Enjoy!

A big-city counterfeiter decided the best place to pass off his phoney $18 bills would be in some small hick Southern town. So he got into his new wheels and off he went. He found a tiny town with a single store. He entered the store and handed one of the bogus bills to the man behind the counter. "Can you change this for me, please?" he said. The store clerk looked at the $18 bill a short time, then smiled and told the man, "Sure, Mister. Ya'll want 2 nines, or 3 sixes?
