______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by 22 year old Russian woman Belgorod, Russia Church cigarette stunt means jail for Russian woman A 21-year-old woman is jailed for deliberately provoking authorities. Her crime? She posted a photo of herself lighting a cigarette with a candle in a Russian Orthodox church in the city of Belgorod, reports the Moscow Times. For that, she has been charged with "insulting the feelings of religious believers," under a law that came about in 2013 in the wake of the stunts pulled by the feminist punk group Pussy Riot. She faces up to three years in prison, reports the London Times. Hers is not the only such case to generate headlines. A 22- year-old man posted a video of himself playing Pokémon Go in a church in Yekaterinburg after state television warned that such game-playing was a no-no. He, too, was charged under the 2013 law, and has been held since October. No trial dates appear to have been set in either case. Meanwhile in Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin gives a good example of proper behavior in church, as he lights a candle in the Lifegiving Trinity Church in Moscow. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Connie Re: Angelwinks going to wrong mailbox Dear Webby WHY DID YOU PEOPLE STOP SENDING ANGELWINKS TO MY IN BOX.

Sent from Outlook Connie Dear Connie We send Angel's newsletter to your address. What you do with it after that, is entirely up to you. Once it has entered the Ho'mail server, there is nothing more that we can do about it. Probably you have accidentally hit the Junkmail button in your Outlook one morning, and it remembered that. You have to tell your Outlook yourself to behave and not to toss good email into the junk box. I can't reach into your Outlook. There is probably good information in the OUTLOOK help on how to tell Outlook not to junk certain emails. Have FUN! DearWebby
Moisha Rabinowitz in the late 1930s fled his native land of Germany. He sold all his assets and converted it to gold and then had 5 sets of solid gold false teeth made. When he arrived in New York the customs official was perplexed as to why anybody would have 5 sets of gold teeth. So Moisha explained. "We Orthodox Jews have two separate sets of dishes for meat products and dairy products but I am so kosher and religious I also have separate sets of teeth." The customs official shook his head and said, "Well that accounts for two sets of teeth. What about the other three?" Moisha then said "Vell us very religious Orthodox Jews use separate dishes for Passover, but I am so religious I have separate teeth, one for meat and one for dairy food. The customs official slapped his head and then said, "You must be a very religious man with separate teeth for food and dairy products and likewise for Passover. That accounts for four sets of teeth. What about the fifth set?" "Vell to tell you the truth, once in a while I like a ham sandwich."

Daily tip from Stubborn Locks If you have a lock that is not functioning well, spray it with some graphite lock spray. You can buy it at any hardware store. One popular brand is called Lock-Ease. In a pinch, you can try using some non-stick vegetable oil on both the lock and key. You can also try dipping your key in talcum powder and inserting it in the lock. Keep in mind that most locksmiths will charge you $20 more, if you have gunked up a lock with graphite, and tell you that the lock is beyond repair if you have used kitchen oil. Those remedies may be OK for large, oldfashioned locks that use simple gates to stop wrong keys from turning. If the key looks like a miniature flag pole with a jagged flag at the end, then it's safe to use that stuff, but you will still get charged extra for gunking it up and the lock requiring tedious cleaning. Never use those for modern tumbler locks with a key similar to a car key. Tumbler locks should never see anything thicker than WD40 penetrating oil, and even that is frowned upon, because it will trap dust. If you use penetrating oil once, you will have to keep using it once or twice a year until the lock has been taken out and all lubricants cleaned out. It is dust and grit and gunk that jam up a tumbler lock, not lack of lubrication. DearWebby
