"Madam," he said in a broken voice, "I wish to draw your attention to the terrible plight of a poor family in this district. The father of the family is dead, the mother is too ill to work, and the nine children are starving. They are about to be turned into the cold, empty streets unless someone pays their rent, which amounts to $400." "How terrible!" exclaimed the preacher's wife. "May I ask who you are?" The sympathetic visitor applied his handkerchief to his eyes. "I'm Jacob Schwartz, the landlord," he sobbed. ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Nothing gets past these guys. A Harvard School of Public Health survey found that people report more noise and other disruptions in binge-drinking college neighborhoods than in other neighborhoods.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kanesha Godin, 25, Fountain, Colorado Colorado woman locked young children in bedroom at home while she was away in North Carolina A woman faces two counts of felony child abuse after she allegedly left her two young children locked in a bedroom while away on a trip. Itís unclear exactly how long Kanesha Godin, 25, was away from the two children, but police say they were malnourished when they were discovered. The Fountain Police Department says it was called to the home in the 100 block of Wellington Street on March 8 after a friend of Godinís discovered the children werenít being cared for. Police say Godin claimed that she had arranged for a friend to check on the children while she was gone, to feed them and to change their diapers. She claimed that she had told the friend that a neighbor would be caring for the children day and night as well, according to the police department. But the friend eventually discovered that there was no neighbor checking on the children and called police. The bedroom in which the children were locked up had no working light and the temperature on the thermostat was turned up to 90. There was feces and urine all over the place as well as soiled diapers. Officers obtained an arrest warrant for Godin on Tuesday, and she turned herself in. According to El Paso County jail records, her bond was set at $25,000 but she also has two active duty Fort Carson holds. Godin is a Fort Carson soldier. The North Carolina native has been with the military for more than seven years. According to the arrest affidavit, Godin texted the woman who was feeding the children, "The police officers in fountain r guna ask u questions. They r guna put me in jail. I need u to do me a favor. I know wat I told u as far as the kids but plz say tht u were confused about who was supposed to stay the night. Cus if u dont say tht Im guna be charged with child neglect. And Cynthia actin shady af. They are guna take the kids. Erase these messages." The neighbor named by Godin told police that she had not seen the children since December 2016. She said that Godin did not ask her to babysit the children although she had babysat them in the past and she thought they were with their father. Godin had been estranged from the father of the kids for 16 months. The neighbor showed police a text that Godin sent her on March 9, "I need u to do me a favor. I need u to vouch as my daytime sitter. They r guna take my kids and throw me in jail and I did nothing wrong. I kno itís weird and a lot but I just want to ask u tht favor." Police did not say how old the children were or how long Godin was gone from her home. When her commanding officer found out about the kids he texted her and ordered her to get back from North Carolina with the next plane and turn herself in to the police immediately. She is due in court March 16. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rosanna Re: Investment advice via email Dear Webby I received some investment advice in the email that warned that the US dollar .......

Thoughts on Marriage NOVICE: Do clever men make good husbands? SAGE: Clever men don't BECOME husbands! A husband said to his wife, "No, I don't hate your relatives. In fact, I like your mother-in-law better than I like mine." WIFE: The 2 things I cook best are meatloaf and apple pie. HUSBAND: Which is this? NEWLYWED: Do you want dinner? SPOUSE: Sure, what are my choices? NEWLYWED: Yes and no. DIET DEFINITION: The word 'stressed' makes perfect sense when you realize it is 'desserts' spelled backwards. A little boy asked his father, "Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?" And the father replied, "I don't know, son, I'm still paying for it."

Daily tip from Easy Meatless Quiche Recipe Quiche can be an easy meal to make if a visitor turns out to be a vegetarian. By Donna [396 Posts, 403 Comments] Total Time: 1hour 15 minutes Yield: 2 pies Ingredients: 2 pre made pie crusts (the roll out ones in the refrigerated section were great size to make a nice edge and they tasted better than the frozen ones! 1 1/2 cup half and half 8 eggs 1 can of 'cream of' soup (I have used cream of celery, cream of mushroom and cream of brocolli on different occasions) 1/2 cup various cut up veggies (Celery, carrots, onions, red or green pepper, mushrooms, broccoli) 1/4 cup flour 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, swiss or your favorite) salt and pepper 1/4 tsp garlic salt (optional) 1/8 tsp tumeric or your favorite spices (optional) Note: I added some mushrooms to one of my pies and not the other and sprinkled paprika on top to differentiate the two. Feel free to add your favorite veggies and spices to your recipe for your guests tastes! Steps: Cut up your choice of veggies and dredge in flour. Add to the bottom of the uncooked pie crusts. Mix together the eggs, half and half and creamed soup. Pour on top of the floured veggies. Cover the edges of your pie crust with aluminum foil so it doesn't burn Bake in a 425 degree oven for 45 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil from the edges and bake 15 minutes longer (or until brown) Let it rest a while and it will condense somewhat. Enjoy!

>From Len, many years ago: The Lone Ranger and Tonto walked into a bar and sat down to drink a beer. After a few minutes, a big tall cowboy walked in and said, "Who owns the big white horse outside?" The Lone Ranger stood up, hitched his gun belt, and said, "I do, ... Why?" The cowboy looked at the Lone Ranger and said, "I just thought you would like to know that your horse is about dead outside!" The Lone Ranger and Tonto rushed outside, and sure enough, Silver was ready to die from heat exhaustion. The Lone Ranger got the horse water, and soon, Silver was s tarting to feel a little better. The Lone Ranger turned to Tonto and said, "Tonto, I want you to run around Silver and see if you can create enough of a breeze to make him start to feel better." Tonto said, "Sure, Kemosabe," and took off running circles around Silver. Not able to do anything else but wait, the Lone Ranger returned to the bar to finish his beer. A few minutes later, another cowboy struts into the bar and asks, "Who owns that big white horse outside?" The Lone Ranger stands again, and claims, "I do, what's wrong with him this time?" The cowboy looks him in the eye and says, "Nothing, but you left your Injun runnin'." Len, if you read this, send an email!
