They decided to take him to the hospital for evaluation. En route, with siren going, they questioned the man to determine his level of awareness. Leaning close, one paramedic asked, "Sir, do you know what we're doing right now?" The old man slowly looked up at him, then gazed out the ambulance window. He slowly turned back to the paramedic and said, "Oh, I'd say about 50, maybe 55." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A ten-year-old girl asked and received help from a librarian on how to use the card catalog. In a little while, the girl approached the librarian again, wanting to know how to spell "tequila." "T-e-q-u-i-l-a," spelled the librarian. The girl thanked her and went back to her search. A short time later she came to the desk, looking quite distraught. "I just can't find it." she said. "What book are you looking for, honey?" the librarian asked. And the little girl said, "Tequila Mockingbird." ______________________________________________________ Old WhitePass wall calendar.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Robbie Charles Watson, 55, Alachua, Florida Man drives drunk in the wrong direction of the road, urinates on himself twice After being pulled over for driving drunkenly on the wrong side of a highway, a Newberry man urinated his pants in front of a police car, Alachua Police said. Robbie Charles Watson, 55, was driving north in the southbound lanes of State Road 25 in Alachua when a police car tried to pull him over at about 12:14 a.m., according to an arrest report. He pulled over in the median before driving off to a Sunco parking lot, at 11921 NW U.S. Highway 441. An officer noticed Watson had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, according to the report. Watson had also urinated in his pants. When officers asked Watson for documents, he couldn’t follow directions and gave police the wrong documents multiple times, police said. He was unsteady and leaned against his car for support, a responding officer noted. Watson was unable to complete field sobriety exercises, according to the report. After officers placed him in front of a police car, he urinated in his pants again, according to the report. Watson refused to submit to a breathalyzer test, and a jail nurse told police he had to be taken to a hospital, police said. At about 5:50 a.m., Watson was cleared by the hospital and brought back to the Alachua County Jail, according to the report. When police asked him to sign a criminal citation, Watson refused even after officers told him refusal would be a misdemeanor. Police arrested him on charges of driving under the influence and refusing to sign a criminal citation. Watson was released from jail on his own recognizance Tuesday morning. He could not be reached for comment. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Chris Re: Reboot how often ? Dear Webby How often should a computer with Windows 7 be rebooted? Chris /i> Dear Chris That depends entirely on what you have on it. If the machine is near stock, with Malwarebytes on it, and just used for business, with spreadsheets, word processors, databases and normal Internet access for bill paying and shopping, then once a week is plenty. If the machine has Norton on it, and a dozen tweaks and utilities and toolbars and similar stuff, then once an hour is good, unless it crashes before then. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Pressure Cooker Pea Soup By Judy Pariser S. [269 Posts, 1,925 Comments] Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 45 minutes Total Time: 55 minutes Yield: 9 cups Source: Budget Bytes Soup in 45 minutes with no standing over the stove watching! Ingredients: 1 yellow onion, diced 3 carrots, cut in thin rounds 3 ribs celery, cut in small pieces 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 lb split peas 2 Tbsp oil 1 bay leaf 1/2 Tbsp paprika 1/4 tsp thyme salt and pepper to taste 6 cups water or broth Steps: Rinse the peas in a colander. Put all ingredients in the pressure cooker. Add one bay leaf on the top. Set the cooker for 15 minutes of cooking. Let the cooker release on its own. This will take about 15 minutes. Stir the soup and taste. Adjust seasonings if necessary. You may blend, if you wish. Serve and enjoy. I usually toss a ham bone or a diced ham end piece into pea spup for traditional Canadian pea soup flavor. You can concentrate Canadian pea soup at VERY low heat until it is very thick, then ladle it into ziplock baggies sitting in cups.When they are cold, put them into the freezer. The reason for the cups is uniform sizes and not interlocking in the freezer. When frozen, you can tip the hockey pucks out of the cups. To use, just toss a puck into boiling water, and you will have pea soup in a few minutes. Just add bread, and you have a good meal. Have FUN! DearWebby

Clever ads that will make you look twice.
The school of agriculture's dean of admissions was interviewing a prospective student and asked, "Why have you chosen this career?" The young man said, "I dream of making a million dollars in farming, like my father." "Your father made a million dollars in farming?" echoed the dean. "No," replied the applicant, "but he always dreamed of it."
