1816 The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed its right to review
state court decisions.
Would that mean the Supreme court could overrule Obama`s
college smoking buddy in Hawaii?
It doesn't really mean much since 23 countries won't allow
their nationals to be sent back there if caught committing
crimes and deported.
Maybe the deportees belonging to those 23 countries would
have to be sent to Guatanamo Bay in Cuba?

Linda and Jill are having coffee when Linda notices
that Jill seems troubled and asks her, "Is something
bugging you? You look anxious."
"Well, my boyfriend just lost all his money and life
savings in the stock market," Jill explained.
"Oh, that's too bad," Linda sympathized.
"I'm sure you're feeling sorry for him."
"Yeah, I am," Jill said. "He'll miss me."
One Sunday a priest announced he was passing out minature
crosses made of palm leaves. "Put this cross in the room
where your family argues most," he advised. "When you look
at it, the cross will remind you that God is watching."
When the parishoners were leaving church, a woman walked up
to the priest, shook his hand and said, "I'll take five."

Drug deal went down in front of 3 officers in
A Drug deal went down in front of 3 officers in
western Wisconsin gas station just paces away from Pierce
County’s law enforcement center might not be the most
inconspicuous place for a drug deal, but prosecutors allege
that’s just what a trio of teens did last week.
The young men were flanked by officers — including a nine-
year veteran of the St. Croix Valley Drug Task Force pumping
gas into his squad car — who watched them make the sale of a
quarter-pound of marijuana on March 9, according to charges
filed in the case.
Investigation of the case led investigators to Plum City
High School, where a student there allegedly admitted to
being behind the sale.
The Pierce County Attorney’s Office charged Ellsworth
resident Desmond T. Trok, 18; Knapp resident Matthew P.
Jones, 18; and Menomonie resident Trace Schofield, 17, with
delivering THC, a felony. No charges had yet been filed
against the Plum City student and it wasn’t clear Monday if
the case received a juvenile referral.
Pierce County sheriff’s investigator Marty Shepler was
pumping gas into his squad car at 11:55 a.m. when he saw
what looked like a drug deal in the nearby parking lot.
He watched a brown vehicle back into a parking stall next to
a white vehicle.
On the other side of the brown vehicle was a Department of
Natural Resources warden’s patrol truck.
The warden happened to be walking out of the neighboring
Pierce County Sheriff’s Office with another deputy during
the drug deal. They called it in to dispatchers, who seconds
later were alerted by Shepler of the same thing.
Shepler and the deputy, Robbie Jaeger, connected over their
radios and formulated a plan to conduct a traffic stop on
the two vehicles.

Re: Computer keeps shutting down
My computer is about 7 years old and running Windows 7.
Lately, it has been shutting itself down and restarting,
sometimes several tiems a day. What could be causing this
problem and is there any way I can correct it?
Thank you so much for your advice and help.
Most likely your computer is just full of dust bunnies, and
Take the side cover off, vacuum it out with the couch
crevice tool, and clean all the heat sinks with Q-tips and
Windex or vinegar.
Look closely at the fans. If they are dirty, clean them too.
Peek into the welded shut box of the power supply.
The fan in there might need cleaning too. Don`t try to open
that box, just poke in there with Q-tips.
After that your machine will run nice and cool and not shut
down when it gets too hot.
If your computer is sitting on the floor sucking up all the
cruising dust bunnies, put it up on blocks! Bricks look nice
and traditional, but even some small 2x4 pieces will raise
it above the dust bunny freeway.
There used to be a shut-down virus many years ago, but if
you have Malwarebytes, that would have been killed long ago.
Let me know if the cleaning fixed the problem.
A businessman boarded a plane to find, sitting next to him,
an elegant woman wearing the largest, most stunning
diamond ring he had ever seen.
He asked her about it.
"This is the Klopman diamond," she said. "It is beautiful,
but there is a terrible curse that goes with it."
"What's the curse?" the man asked.

Healthy Onion Rings
If you love onion rings but are looking for a healthier
option, then try these baked onion rings.
non-stick cooking spray
1 large onion
1 1/4 cups Italian style bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. minced fresh garlic
1 cup low fat milk
1 cup all purpose flour
3 large egg whites, beaten slightly
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 2 large cookie sheets
with nonstick spray. Cut onion into 1/2 inch thick slices.
Separate slices into rings. In a small bowl, combine bread
crumbs and garlic. Set aside. Place milk, flour, and egg
whites into 3 separate small bowls. Dip each onion ring into
milk, flour, egg white and bread crumbs (in that same
order). Place on prepared cookie sheets and bake for 20
minutes. Turn onion rings over and bake till golden brown,
about 10 minutes longer.
Because the bread crumbs are last, you don't really need the
unhealthy cooking spray. Save that for the rusty lug nuts on
Also, don't forget to add salt and pepper to the flour,
and just a bit of nutmeg.
For the popular beer battered onion rings use beer instead
of milk, and add a bit of cream of tartar with the salt and

CHANGING A LIGHT-BULB...
How many members does it take to change a light bulb?
Charismatics: Only one. Hands already in the air.
Roman Catholics: None. They use candles.
Pentecostals: Ten. One to change the bulb, and nine to
pray against the spirit of darkness.
Presbyterians: None. God has predestined when the lights
will be on and off.
Episcopalians: Eight. One to call the electrician, and
seven to say how much more they liked the previous one..
Mormons: Five. One man to change the bulb,
and four wives to tell him how to do it.
Unitarians: We choose not to make a statement either in
favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However,
your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for
you, that is fine. You are invited to write a poem or
compose a modern dance about your personal
relationship with your light bulb, and present it next
month at our annual Light Bulb Sunday Service, in which
we will explore a number of light bulb traditions,
incandescent, fluorescent, three-way, long-life and
all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.
Baptists: At least 15. One to change the light bulb, and two
or three committees to approve the change. Oh, and also
a couple to provide a casseroles.
Lutherans: None. Lutherans don't believe in change.
Atheists: None. Lightbulbs are just superstition.
I liked the baptists, mainly becasue of the casseroles,
however, when a girl once tried to convert me and the
baptism was discussed, they were looking for a place to
anchor me for a week. So I declined and learned to cook

"I fall in love really quickly and this scares guys away.
I'm like, 'I'm in love with you, I want to marry you, I
want to move in with you! I want to bear your kids!'

'Ma'am, just give me the ten bucks for the pizza and
I'm outta here.'"
