The Doctor gave the man a jar and said, "Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow." The next day the 85-year-old man reappeared at the doctor's office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day. The doctor asked what happened and the man explained: "Well, doc,it's like this - First I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing. Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, and still nothing. We even called up Earleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit and she even tried squeezin' it between her knees, but still nothing." The doctor was shocked! "You asked your neighbor?" The old man replied,"Yep. And no matter what we tried we still couldn't get that damn jar open!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Hiram lay breathing his last. He rose on one elbow and told the bedside gathering his last wishes, then began recounting financial matters. "Don't forget Samuel owes me $7,000." His wife, Miriam, said, "What a mind the man has, clear as a bell to the very end." "And I owe my partner Sid $210,000 for..." At that point, his wife cut in, "Pay no attention to the poor man's ravings, he's obviously out of his head." ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

He then coerced them into sending naked pictures of themselves, which he forwarded to other children, the court heard. Nicholas Taylor, 27, of Barnet, north London, threatened to kill himself if they did not comply, a jury heard. St Albans Crown Court was told that Taylor also forwarded pictures on to other children and girl guides - where he was a leader. Judge Jonathan Carroll described him as every parent's "worst nightmare". The court heard how Taylor, who taught at a south Hertfordshire school, pretended to be a 13 year-old boy on Instagram to befriend the girls, aged between 10 and 15. At an earlier hearing, Taylor pleaded guilty to six counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, two counts of making indecent photographs of a child and one count distributing indecent photographs of a child. He was also made subject to a lifetime sexual harm prevention order. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ron Re: Euro vis "bent e" Dear Webby On items from Europe I see a symbol that looks like a slightly bent "e", but the same size as a CAP letter. Is that a lazy form for the Euro symbol, or what is it? Ron Dear Ron What you call "bent e" is the "Estimated" symbol. It's a ROUND, not oval "e" with a thin crossbar, straight vertical insides and often the open end appears skimpy or kicked in. An example of it's use would be a package of Lasagna noodles. They are not going to file down a noodle to make the weight of the package exact, and they are not going to throw in a splinter of a noodle for that either. If you read "e 1 kg" then that means that at packing time the noodles weighed approximately 1 Kilogram +/- one noodle. By the time you get them, they will have dried down 10% or more anyway, so that is close enough for Europe. Because Europeans are used to the Estimated sign, never use a small e instead of the Euro sign. It would confuse them to no end. "What does he mean, Estimated 4.95 ? For the Euro, just write it out if your fonts don't have the Euro sign. Have FUN! DearWebby
A preacher went to his church office on Monday morning and discovered a dead mule (jackass to the knowing) in the church yard. He called the police. Since there did not appear to be any foul play, the police referred the preacher to the health department. They said since there was no health threat that he should call the sanitation department. The sanitation manager said he could not pick up the mule without authorization from the mayor. Now, the preacher knew the mayor, and was not to eager to call him. The mayor had a bad temper and was generally hard to deal with, but the preacher called him anyway. The mayor did not disappoint. He immediately began to rant and rave at the pastor and finally said, "Why did you call me anyway? Isn't it your job to bury the dead?" The preacher paused for a brief prayer and asked the Lord to direct his response. He was led to say, "Yes, Mayor, it is my job to bury the dead, but I always like to notify the next of kin first!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use a Tea Light in Pillar Candles If you like to decorate with large pillar candles, but don't like it when they get short, just let them burn down to the height you like, pour out the extra wax to form a hollow inside of the candle. Slip in a tea light and then you can just change tea lights each time you want to have candlelight. By QueenBeeCrafts In case you don't know what a "Tea Light" is, it's those small candles in aluminum foil cups that you see in some restaurants to keep food warm, while it is sitting on the table or on a serving cart. They cost about a dollar for a bag of ten at restaurant suply stores, and about $5 for a bag with 100 of them in it. If you have a choice, get the ones that have a foil covered cork float for holding the wick up. Those you can replenish with melted candle drippings and stubs. If you like the soft glow of a pillar candle with the flame deep down in the crater, make sure you drill an air hole upwards to where the tea light sits. You get a much steadier flame, and you avoid melting down the shell. I have seen fancy and elaborately decorated "Pilgrimage" candles that were two, - maybe three, generations old, and still in fine shape because of an air hole to keep them cool. To reach down and light the wick, use a piece of spaghetti, not a butane BBQ lighter. Have FUN! DerWebby

____________________________________________________ I noticed the neighbor down the street was home every day, so after a few weeks I asked him what was going on. He replied, "I left my job because of illness and fatigue." A few weeks later, his wife gave me the real truth of what happened. Turns out my neighbor's boss got sick and tired of him. ___________________________________________________
A Frank Lloyd Wright one of a kind house is up for sale.
A man was sleeping when his wife shook him and said, "Wake up! Someone is breaking in!" The man had gone through this almost every night for 20 years, and he knew that the only way he would get any rest was to go and check it out. This time, however, there was a man with a gun who entered to rob the house. As the thief was about to leave the man said, "You have to go and meet my wife." The thief said, "Why would you want me to meet your wife?" The man explained, "Well, she's been expecting you for twenty years."
