She wasn't sure how many rolls of wallpaper she would need, but she knew that her friend next door had recently done the same job and the two rooms were identical in size. "Buffy," she said, "how many rolls of wallpaper did you buy for your bedroom?" "Fifteen," said Buffy. So the girl bought the fifteen rolls of paper and did the job, but she had seven rolls left over. "Buffy," she said. "I bought ten rolls of wallpaper for the bedroom, but I've got seven left over!" "Yeah!" said Buffy. "I did too." ______________________________________________________ From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Roshaun Jones, 33, Del Mar, Oklahoma MMA fighter Roshaun Jones arrested for double murder during armed robbery Professional fighter Roshaun Jones was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder on Thursday in Oklahoma. Police believe Jones, who last fought at a Bellator event in 2015, shot and killed two people in a botched armed robbery at the Laundry Station in Del Mar on Monday. One of the victims, Nekia Jackson, was on shift as the day manager of the establishment, while the other, 60-year-old Russ Roberts, was a customer who happened to be in the store when Jones tried to rob it. Roberts tried to help Jackson while the robbery was happening when Jones allegedly turned the gun on them both, according to KFOR. Another customer walked in later to the pair of dead bodies and called the police. The U.S. Marshals service assisted in the manhunt for Jones earlier in the week and he was eventually captured by authorities in Midwest City, Okla. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rose Re: Huge fonts after repair Dear Webby After I got my computer back from the repair place for a minor problem, I noticed all my Icons , writing and pages where huge. I went to start, properties,control panel and looked for the Icon that said display checked and looked for the large Icon to remove a checked sign, but it was not checked. Is there another way to get the print back to normal? Thank you for your help. Rose Dear Rose Yes, it's hard to get decent help these days. Probably the goof who messed with your machine did a blind re-install without checking how horrible things looked. Just right-click on the desktop Properties Settings and then increase the resolution. That shrinks the icons and everything. I use 1600 x 1200 on this machine, a bit more on some of the other ones. Just pump it up one step at a time until it looks comfortable. Then, after you ENTER out of that, clcik on an empty spot on the desktop, hold down CTRL and roll the scroll wheel on the mouse. Roll it away from you to make the icons larger, roll it towards you to make them smaller. Have FUN! DearWebby
A psychology student was to help a professor in conducting a personality test. The room was set up with various props in order to move through the assessment quickly. The first person to enter the room started through the test. "How does this glass of water look to you?" Person 1: It is half empty. Student writes 'pessimist' in his report. Person 2 enters the room. "How does this glass of water look to you?" Person 2: It is half full. Student writes 'optimist' in his report. Person 3 enters the room. "How does this glass of water look to you?" Person 3: Looks like you have twice as much glass as you need there. The student looks totally blank and goes to consult with the professor. "Oh them!", the professor says, "I forgot to warn you about the engineers! They have no personality."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Sweet Potato Chocolate Frosting By Donna [384 Posts, 399 Comments] Just two ingredients make a delicious frosting that will get one more vegetable into your family, while tasting absolutely decadent! No butter and no added sugar. Ingredients: 1 lb sweet potatoes 12 oz milk chocolate chips Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes in the microwave Total Time: 15 minutes Yield: frosting for approximately 8 cupcakes Steps: Place clean sweet potatoes on a plate and cover with another plate. Place in the microwave and cook on high for 5-6 minutes (or according to your microwave instructions.) Check them for softness and microwave at 4 minutes increments until soft and cooked. Mine were done in 10 minutes. Let the sweet potatoes sit a little bit, so you don't burn yourself. Then cut them open and scrape the center out into a small food processor and puree for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chocolate while the sweet potatoes are still warm to help them melt. If desired while letting the potatoes cool, you could always put the chocolate bits into a covered bowl in the microwave to pre-melt them. I would heat it at 1 minute increments and stop as soon as they are soft, but not losing their shape. Puree the mix together for a minute. That's it! Spread on to cool cupcakes, cake or even fresh strawberries. Serve and enjoy!

Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. They loaded up Jack's mini van and headed north. After driving for a few hours,they got caught in a terrible blizzard. They pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night. "I realize it's terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I'm recently widowed," she explained. "I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house." "Don't worry," Jack said. "We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light." The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night. Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way. They enjoyed a great weekend of skiing. About nine months later, Jack got an unexpected letter from an attorney. It took him a few minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend. He dropped in on his friend Bob and asked, "Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up North?" "Yes, I do." "Did you happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?" "Yes," Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out. "I have to admit that I did." "And did you happen to use my name instead of telling her your name?" Bob's face turned red and he said, "Yeah, sorry, buddy. I'm afraid I did. Why do you ask?" "She just died and left me everything."
