"Isn't it true," he bellowed, "that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?" The witness stared out the window, as though he hadn't hear the question. "Isn't it true that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?" the lawyer repeated. The witness still did not respond. Finally, the judge leaned over and said, "Sir, please answer the question." "Oh," the startled witness said, "I thought he was talking to you. Nobody ever gave ME no money or compermising anything." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ It was many years ago since the embarrassing day when a young woman, with a baby in her arms, entered his butcher shop and confronted him with the news that the baby was his and asked what was he going to do about it? Finally he offered to provide her with free meat until the boy was 16. She agreed. He had been counting the years off on his calendar, and one day the teenager who had been collecting the meat each week, came into the shop and said, "I'll be 16 tomorrow." "I know," said the butcher with a smile, "I've been counting too, tell your mother, when you take this parcel of meat home, that it is the last free meat she'll get, and watch the expression on her face." When the boy arrived home he told his mother. The woman nodded and said, "Son, go back to the butcher and tell him I have also had free bread, free milk, free groceries and free rent for the last 16 years, and watch the expression on HIS face!" ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tillman Freeman III, 30, Fayetteville, North Carolina North Carolina man arrested for killing newborn and toddler daughters: BLM BLM A Fayetteville, North Carolina, mother who had just given birth to a baby girl should have been celebrating her new arrival. Instead, she was frantically trying to find out where her daughter was. Candice Freeman's four-day-old baby, Genesis Freeman, was missing along with her two-year-old sister, Serenity Freeman. The mother went to a doctor's appointment and came home to find her children were gone. She had left them with their father, Tillman Freeman, who was also gone, according to The New York Daily News. Candice Freeman called the police to report her missing children and a search ensued. Tillman was located after employees at a doctor's office in a neighboring town contacted police to “report a man acting suspiciously outside the building.” As ABC7 reports, Tillman was arrested at the scene. He refused to tell police where his daughters were once he was in custody. Tillman was charged with two counts of child neglect and child abuse; but that was just the beginning of the charges the man would come to face. Authorities later found Genesis and Serena's bodies in the woods, in his car. They were both stabbed to death. The reason the children were killed allegedly stems from their father's jealousy. According to WTKR, Tillman believed his wife was cheating on him. According to The Fayetteville Observer, Tillman already has a long rap sheet— he has served time in prison for robbery, assault, and burglary. He was also previously placed on probation for drug and theft charges. Tillman has now been charged with two counts of first degree murder for killing his four-day-old and two-year-old children. He is being held without bail. As for Candice Freeman, she is currently recovering in the hospital. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Terry Re: Blacklist or filters? Dear Webby What is better for controlling spam, blacklisting, or filters? Terry Dear Terry Whenever you spot a pattern, make a filter. Filters are permanent. Your blacklist grows large and unwieldy very quickly, but is usually quite useless, since spammers never re-use the same forged sending address anyway. The only difference you'll notice when you dump your blacklist, is that the program works faster. Filters can work on the body of the email, not just on the usually forged sender address, and they do that no matter how misleading the subject line is. Have FUN! DearWebby
Nancy went into her local hardware store and bought two instant barbeques - the ones with the pictures of succulent foods on the lid. The next day, she returned one of these to the customer service desk at the store complaining that there was no food inside! The assistant patiently told her that these were just barbeque trays and that the food was not supplied with them. "Oh dear" said the lady. "I'd better take the other one out of the freezer then"!

Daily tip from Cleaning Mineral Deposits from a Tea Kettle By Holly [365 Posts, 1,258 Comments] Best Answer If you have any old lemon juice in the fridge that is too old to be used, boil it in the kettle. Or boil vinegar in the kettle. A couple of soakings, boilings and thorough washings will help. Then use filtered water to keep the pot cleaner. No matter whether you use lemon juice or vinegar, you have to fill up the kettle with it. Right to the top! You don't need a rolling boil, just a gentle simmer for an hour or two. Have FUN! DearWebby

She began looking at her new boots and after a pause said, "Both of them!" ___________________________________________________
Start your week with a smile with animal funnies.
A young ensign had nearly completed his first overseas tour of sea duty when he was given an opportunity to display his ability at getting the ship under way. With a stream of crisp commands, he had the decks buzzing with men and soon, the ship had left port and was streaming out of the channel. The ensign's efficiency has been remarkable. In fact, the deck was abuzz with talk that he had set a new record for getting a destroyer under way. The ensign glowed at his accomplishment and was not all surprised when another seaman approached him with a message from the captain. He was, however, a bit surprised to find that it was a radio message, and he was even more surprised when he read, "My personal congratulations upon completing your underway preparation exercise according to the book and with amazing speed. In your haste, however, you have overlooked one of the rules: To ensure that you won't be courtmartialled and hanged for stealing a ship, make sure the Captain is aboard before getting under way."
