As a senior in college, he decided to take the plunge and go through the formal conversion process. He studied Judaism all semester. Finally, he felt he was ready to take the test and complete the conversion. On the appointed day, he arrived at the Rabbi's office, ready to begin. The Rabbi said, "I'm sorry, but before I give you the test, I must discuss my fee, It's $5,000." "$5,000!" exclaimed Chester, "That's too much money! How about $500?" "Congratulations, you pass." said the Rabbi. ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Driving to a new restaurant, Judy took several wrong turns.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Nicolas Rojas, 54, Jacksonville, Florida Jacksonville man arrested for repeatedly stealing neighbor's underwear from garage A Jacksonville man was arrested after he allegedly stole his neighbor's underwear out of her garage several times. The woman told police that she saw surveillance video showing 56-year-old Nicolas Rojas entering her garage and stealing her underwear. She told officers she decided to confront him when she saw him inside her garage for the third time on Monday. She opened the door to the garage while Rojas was still inside. She told officers Rojas asked her if she had any lemons. She told him she did not, and he left. The woman told police she went to his house to ask him why he took her underwear. She said he admitted he took it but did not give it back. He later came to her house and apologized, she said. She told police she thought he was armed when he came over to apologize. Her husband called police after she told him what happened. Because the victim thought he was armed and his criminal history, officers surrounded his home and used a loud speaker to order him out of the house. Rojas' son came home and told officers his father didn't have any weapons and was passed out drunk. He got Rojas to come outside, where he was arrested. The repoort did not state why she kept underwear in an unlocked garage. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Kevin Re: voice volume on VOIP Dear Webby I have had Voice Over IP for my phone for almost a year and have been reasonably happy with it. Lately I noticed that with some people I have a rela problem hearing them. Not all, but especially with sales people the volume seems to be really low. Is that due to VOIP ? Thanks Kevin Dear Kevin Since you can hear some people normally, the problem is most likely just lazy people using a speakerphone and not talking directly at it. VOIP problems due to the ISP chopping the line into too many calls per wire result in warbling, not reduced volume. When that happens calls frequently start out not too bad but then deteriorate. Or if you use Skype and do a video call, it starts out with crisp and clear voice and picture and after a couple of minutes the voice is noticeably chopped and the piccture deteriorates. If that is the case, complain to the ISP. However, if the caller's volume is too low, then the problem is some lazy ass using a speakerphone or desk microphone or laptop built in microphone and not talking directly at it. I just tell them to send me an email. I have no patience for people who are too busy doing other stuff and can't point their face at the microphone. Have FUN! DearWebby
It is said that when you tell an Englishman a joke, he will laugh three times. First - when you tell it, to be polite. Second - when you explain it, to be polite. And third - in the middle of the night when he wakes up and finally gets it. When you tell an Irishman the same joke, he will laugh twice. First - when you tell it, to be polite, even if he was the one who told you the joke last week. And second - when he tells it to you again next week.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Burnt Oil From a Frying Pan By lalala... [795 Posts, 103 Comments] I forgot to remove my pan from the burner after frying taco shells, causing the oil to burn onto the pan. Total Time: 10 minutes Supplies: 1 Tbsp Dawn dish soap water Steps: Add Dawn dish soap to the pan. Fill the pan about halfway with water. Put the pan on the stove and boil for about 5 minutes. Be sure to set a timer. Using a metal spatula, carefully scrap away as much of the oil as possible. NOTE: Do not use a metal spatula on a non- stick pan. Empty the soap water into the sink. Then scrub with a sponge to remove any remaining oil.

We ran into some difficulties while setting it up so we decided to call the customer support phone number we found in the manual. I picked up the phone and called the number. A man answered the phone and I explained the problem to him. He began rattling off computer jargon. This confused us even more. "Sir," I said politely, "Can you explain what I should do as if I were a small child?" "Okay," the computer support guy said, "Son, could you please put your mommy on the phone?" ___________________________________________________
Glass making has always fascinated me.
The blind farmer was often taken for a walk in the fields by a kind neighbor. However kindly the neighbor might have been, he was undoubtedly a coward. When a bull charged towards them one day, he abandoned the blind man. The bull, puzzled by a lack of fear, nudged the blind farmer in the back. The farmer turned very quickly, caught the bull by the horns and threw him to the ground with a thump that left it breathless. "Goodness!" said the neighbor, "I never knew you were so strong." "I owe it all to faith," said the blind farmer. "And if I could have got that fella off the handlebars of his bike, I'd have thrashed him good and properly."
