He got restless, so my wife handed him a pad and pencil and suggested he mark down every time the speaker said the word "and." After a while, he grew bored, and I asked, "Would you like to listen for a different word?" "Yes," he whispered. "I'd like to listen for 'Amen'." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Raccoon for this story: Jane and Gina and Mona died and found themselves standing before St. Peter. He told them that before they could enter the Kingdom, they had to tell him what Easter was. Jane said, "Easter is a holiday where they have a big feast and we give thanks and eat turkey." St. Peter said, "Noooooo," and he turned her away. Gina said, "Easter is when we celebrate Jesus' birth and exchange gifts." St. Peter said, "Noooooo," and he turned her away. Mona said she knew what Easter is, and St. Peter said, "OK, tell me." She said, "Easter is a Christian holiday that coincides with the Jewish festival of Passover. Jesus was having Passover feast with His disciples when he was betrayed by Judas, and the Romans arrested him. The Romans hung Him on the cross and eventually He died. Then they buried Him in a tomb behind a very large boulder..." St. Peter said, "Verrrrrry good!" Mona continued, "Now every year the Jews roll away the boulder and Jesus comes out. If he sees his shadow, we have six more weeks of basketball." ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dante Rhodes, 40, of Dubuque Iowa Iowa bank robbery ends in brief chase, crash, arrest. A bank robbery in Maquoketa led to a car chase and crash on Wednesday, March 8. Dante Rhodes, 40, of Dubuque, was arrested following the crash. Maquoketa police say they received a call about a robbery around 1:45 p.m. from Fidelity Bank on Highway 64. A teller says the man handed her a note and implied that he had a gun, but did not show one. Rhodes was able to flee with an undisclosed amount of cash and took off in a vehicle. Dubuque police identified Rhodes’ vehicle, but he did not pull over. Dubuque police say he lost control at the intersection of Highways 61 and 52S, where he sideswiped a stopped vehicle. Rhodes continued on and eventually struck an unmarked patrol car head-on. Rhodes tried to flee on foot but was Tasered and arrested. He was treated and released from an area hospital. The driver of the cars he struck were also treated and released. Evidence was found in the vehicle linking Rhodes to the bank robbery, says police. A whole bunch of different charges will be announced next week. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lee Re: Large Font mail Dear Webby My grandkids were just here for a week during spring break. Not only did their departure leave me with lots of chores to catch up on but also left my computer emails using large print. I'm sure it was a joke about how old they think their Grammy is, but I really don't like it and I don't know how to change it back. Of course none of them took credit for this little prank so they obviously can't blow their cover by telling me how to return it to normal. I even asked the BIG isp, but of course they haven't had time to get back to me ??? Can you help? Thanx, Lee Dear Lee I haven't got a clue about how things are done at AOL. Up here with Eudora, I would click TOOLS, OPTIONS, FONTS and select medium or small fonts. Maybe somebody from AOL can send the instructions on how to do it there, and I'll print them here tomorrow. Have FUN! DearWebby
Thanks to Hope for this story: A Southern Baptist minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said, "If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river." With even greater emphasis he yelled, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river." And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he hollered, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it all and pour it into the river. AMEN! " With the sermon complete, he sat down. The choir leader stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, nearly laughing, "For our closhing sschong, let usch be schinging Hymn #365, "Shall We Gather at the River?"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Crescent Pizza Rolls By tiffanytallent1981 [62 Posts, 29 Comments] I think it is safe to bet that almost everyone loves pizza! And if you are looking for a great tasting variation, these rolls are the perfect choice. They make fabulous appetizers for events, parties, and reunions. I actually prepare one package and split them between dinner one night, and lunch the next day. They are just as good reheated in the microwave, so nothing has to be wasted if there are leftovers. Prep Time: 10 Cook Time: 10-12 minutes Total Time: 20-25 minutes Yield: 8 Source: Pinterest Ingredients: 1 pkg. crescent rolls 24 pieces pepperoni 4 mozzarella string cheese sticks Marinara, ranch, or other dipping sauce 1 sprinkle garlic powder 1/8 cup grated Parmesan cheese cooking spray (for some pans) Steps: Cut string cheese sticks in half. Lay out the crescent roll triangles. Add 3-4 slices of pepperoni to each triangle, slightly overlapping. Place them along the base of the triangle, going toward the middle. Add a cheese stick half on top of each set of pepperoni Preheat oven to 350-375 degrees F. You will bake them at the temperature given in the crescent roll directions. Every oven is different and mine works better at 350 F. Use cooking spray if you feel it is needed. I actually did not have any with this current batch. The rolls still practically slid off of my pan! Fold the crescent corners around the pepperonis and cheese sticks, leaving no holes. If you have any holes, the cheese will melt out and burn on the pan. Sprinkle garlic powder on top of the rolls. Place in the oven for 5-8 minutes. The darker you want the bottoms of the rolls, the longer you leave them in the oven. Take them out and flip each roll over. Place back in the oven for 4-6 minutes. The time depends on how dark you want them. I try to leave mine for 6 minutes the first time and 3-4 minutes after they have been flipped. Take them out of the oven and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce. If you prefer traditional Pizza Pockets, turn up a quarter inch along the edge of the dough, smear Pizza sauce or Marinara Spaghetti sauce onto the dough, toss small cubed ham, onion, salami, pepperoni, mushrooms, pineapple, whatever you want, except chocolate, onto the triangle. Top with shredded cheese. Squirt or drizzle some more of the sauce, cover with slices of tomato. Bake it for 10 minutes. If you want it to be fast filling, cover it with a dough triangle and smear pizza sauce on top of that and sprinkle some Mozzarella on top of that. Whatever you do, do NOT forget the Pizza sauce (or spaghetti sauce). It's the baked pizza sauce that gives it the expected pizza smell and flavor, not the dough. Have FUN! DearWebby
What Room Does Fear Have?
____________________________________________________ "Hey you! Pull over!" shouted the traffic cop. Karin complied, and he wrote her a $45 ticket. She went home in great anxiety lest her husband, who always examined her chequebook, should learn of the incident. Then inspiration struck and she marked the check stub, "One pullover, $25." ___________________________________________________
Down a secret rabbit hole.
A cantor, the man who sings the prayers at a synagogue, brags before his congregation in a booming, bellowing voice, "two years ago I insured my voice with Lloyds of London for $750,000." There is a hushed and awed silence in the crowded room. Suddenly, from the back of the room, the quiet, nasal voice of an elderly woman is heard, "So vat did you do with the money?"
