______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by James Rankin, 78, Hurst, Texas Texas pastor caught with child porno A Texas pastor is claiming that child pornography images allegedly found on his computer were “to remind himself of what other people like to look at,” according to an affidavit for a search warrant. Local police disagree. “That explanation did not really pan out for us,” police Sgt. Lonnie Brazzel told The Huffington Post. Authorities on Friday seized computers, digital storage devices and cameras belonging to 78-year-old James Rankin, of Hurst, Texas. Rankin was arrested after employees at a Best Buy alerted police to suspected child pornography allegedly found Thursday on an Apple iMac that Hurst brought in for repair. When investigators examined the computer, they allegedly found about 50 images of nude children, some of which they described as having a “‘home-made’ quality.” Rankin told police he’d discovered the images seven or eight years ago “and saved these images because he had researched a possible lesson involving Cupid, love, and human trafficking,” according to the search affidavit. However, authorities say some of the images have dates as recent as February associated with them. “This is now a matter of whether this a downloaded collection or photos he’s taken,” Brazzel said. A forensic analysis of the images is pending. At the time of his arrest, Rankin told police he was an associate pastor at Bellevue Baptist Church in Hurst. A now- defunct page on the church’s website states that Rankin is a married father of two who served in churches in Tennessee, Fort Worth and Amarillo. He also served as a chaplain in the U.S. Army. The church did not respond to a request for comment. Rankin also allegedly said the photos served as a reminder of “how bad human trafficking is.” However, it appears his concern didn’t motivate him to take any further action. Court documents do not indicate that Rankin ever notified authorities or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children of the existence of the alleged child porn images, or the website from which he allegedly downloaded them. Rankin, who faces a charge of possession of child pornography, is jailed in lieu of $5,000 bond. The forensic analysis of the alleged evidence is expected to take five to six weeks, Brazzel said. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Olaf Re: Hard to read font colors Dear Webby Some people use very difficult to read font colors, like for example silver on white, or dark blue on black. Is there a way to make that easier to read ? Thanks Olaf /i> Dear Olaf Why ? Have you ever found anything worth reading on a site whose writer was afflicted with that type of insanity ?

"It's no good, sir," said the hopeless pupil to his English teacher. "I try to learn, but everything you say goes in both ears and out the other." "Goes in both ears and out the other?" asked the puzzled teacher. "But you only have two ears, boy." "Guess I'm no good at math, either!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Italian Lentil and Swiss Chard Soup Recipe By Jess [166 Posts, 971 Comments] Total Time: approximately 2 hours Yield: 8 Source: I adapted my friend Lisa's basic recipe for lentils. Ingredients: 1 Tbsp olive oil 2 cups lentils 1 onion, chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 stalks celery, finely chopped 1 cup mushrooms, chopped 2 carrots, chopped 1 cup spaghetti sauce or 1 can diced tomatoes 1 qt vegetable broth salt, pepper and Italian seasoning to taste 1 bunch Swiss chard, chopped This recipe used what I had on hand. You could substitute or leave out pretty much any of these ingredients to suit your family's taste. I often make a similar soup with noodles instead of lentils and call it Spaghetti Soup. Steps: Heat olive oil in a heavy bottomed pot, over medium heat. Add onions, then garlic. Cook until slightly softened. Add lentils and sauté for a couple of minutes. Add celery and stir, then add mushrooms after a minute or two, then carrots. Allow to cook off the excess moisture for a few minutes. Add in spaghetti sauce, vegetable broth and seasonings. Increase heat to bring soup to just a boil, then turn to low and simmer until lentils are cooked. I cooked my soup for about two hours on low but I'm sure it would have been ready sooner. Add more water to give the soup the right consistency. Just before serving, check seasonings and make adjustments as necessary. Add Swiss chard and cook for about 5 more minutes before serving. Cheese would have been a wonderful garnish to this soup. I served it with a green salad but it would have been nice to have bread too.

____________________________________________________ While talking with my semi-deaf uncle one evening, I noticed that his "hearing aid" was actually an earphone from a transistor radio. The wire had been cut and was sticking out of his shirt. "How does that help your hearing?" I asked. "Don't help my hearing none," he replied. "Makes people talk louder." ___________________________________________________

>From Bill While riding the bus, my mother noticed a young man, who was holding onto the same pole, staring at her. Eventually, he said, "Excuse me. This is my stop." Since she wasn't blocking his way, she was confused. "Well," she said,"go ahead." "And this is my pole," he said. My mother was completely perplexed until the young man added, "I just bought it at the hardware store to hold up my shower curtain." And with that, he picked up his pole and carried it off the bus.
