______________________________________________________ Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live. -- Mark Twain ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A nice girl brings home her fiancé to meet her parents. After dinner, her mother tells her father to find out about the young man. He invites the fiancé to his study for a chat. "So, what are your plans?" the father asks the fiancé. "I am a Biblical scholar," he replies. "A Biblical scholar. Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice home for my daughter to live in, as she's accustomed to?" "I will study," the young man replies, "and God will provide for us." "And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?" "I will concentrate on my studies, God will provide for us." "And children? How will you support children?" "Don't worry, sir, God will provide." The conversation proceeds like this, and each time the father questions, the fiancé insists that God will provide. Later, the mother asks, "So? How did it go?" "He has no job and no plans, but he thinks I'm God." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Woman on cell phone at mall parking lot: "Hello, psychic hotline?

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Ladion Logan, 31 Queens, New York City NY woman in drunkards t-shirt in drunk driving bust A New York City woman wearing a “Support Your Local Bartender” t-shirt was arrested yesterday for driving drunk with her six-year-old son in the car. Ladion Logan, a 31-year-old Queens resident, was collared by Long Island cops after she slammed into a parked vehicle in Uniondale, a Nassau County hamlet. When police arrived at the accident scene, Logan reportedly began screaming and cursing at them. Following a brief struggle, Logan was handcuffed and placed into a police cruiser. Seen above, Logan was charged with drunk driving, resisting arrest, and endangering the welfare of a child. Logan’s son- -who was not injured in the crash--was released into the custody of family members, police reported. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Craig Re: Privacy and domain registrations Dear Webby Is it true that registering a domain causes a lot of spam unless you pay a lot of extra money for those rip-off proxy or private registrations? Craig Dear Craig That depends entirely on where you register your domain, Proxy and private registrations are indeed a rip-off, and cause a lot of unnecessary rigmarole. I don't advise them. I have been registering domains for our clients for 25 years and know all the tricks. If you want privacy and eliminate all the spam associated with being listed as a domain owner, I make you a special address for just that. Then you set up a filter in MailWasher or your mail program to filter all mail, that comes to that address, straight to the trash. If you ever do need access to that address, for example to acknowledge an application for some address changes, then you simply disable that filter for half a day. For the billing address of your domain I always use our billing address and pay for your annual renewal on your behalf. It then just shows up as a line item on your next, regular invoice. And we deal with the spam that is trying to get to your name registration billing address. Have FUN! DearWebby
>From Ines Last week my wife and I purchased a new computer. We ran into some difficulties while setting it up so we decided to call the customer support phone number we found in the manual. I picked up the phone and called the number. A man answered the phone and I explained the problem to him. He began rattling off computer jargon. This confused us even more. "Sir," I said politely, "Can you explain what I should do as if I were a small child?" "Okay," the computer support guy said, "Son, could you please put your mommy on the phone?"

Daily tip from Best Ever Brownies By Holly805 [12 Posts, 10 Comments] These are so rich and chocolatey! The recipe calls for cocoa powder, which lasts longer and is a little less expensive than baking chocolate. Use Dutch-processed cocoa powder when possible. Great for any time, any season! Total Time: 45 minutes Yield: at least a dozen Source: Recipe courtesy of my mom Ingredients: 1 cup butter 1/4 cup shortening 3/4 cup cocoa powder 4 eggs 2 cups sugar 2 tsp vanilla 1 1/2 cup flour 1 cup walnuts (optional) 1/4 cup powdered sugar for dusting (optional) Steps: Melt butter and shortening over low heat. As soon as it is completely melted, whisk in the cocoa powder and beat till smooth. Stir in the sugar and remove the mixture from the heat. Break four eggs into a separate bowl, to catch any bits of shell, and then thoroughly beat into the sugary mixture. It should become smooth and glossy. Stir in the vanilla, and then stir in the flour and nuts (nuts optional). Pour into a greased and lightly floured 13 X 9 inch pan. Gently push the batter to fill the edges of the pan and make light swirls over the top. This is what creates that nice, paper-thin crisp on the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes. If you want to dress up the brownies, Sift a little powdered sugar over small templates. You can also cut out a snowflake/flower pattern from a small circle of paper (which is what I did). Hold the template in place on each individual brownie while you sift the powdered sugar 1-2 tablespoons at a time over their tops. Gently lift off the templates, making sure not to displace any sugar. Enjoy!

____________________________________________________ Two priests are vacationing in Hawaii. They don't want to stand out, so they decide to buy casual clothes. They've just hit the beach in loud Hawaiian print T- shirts and sandals when they spot this hot blonde in a tiny bikini walking their way. As she walks past them, she politely says, "Good afternoon, fathers." Well, the men are amazed, because they can't understand how the woman knew they were priests. They decide to go out and buy even wilder clothes, so they buy tie- died T-shirts, surfer shorts, and dark sunglasses. The next day, they hit the beach in their wild new clothes, and the same blonde passes them in a string bikini. As she passes, she says, "How do you do, fathers?" Well, the two priests are really confused, so they ask the blonde, "Excuse me, ma'am. We're not ashamed of being priests, but how in the world did you know who we were?" The blonde replies "Father, don't you recognize me? I'm Sister Catherine from the convent!" ___________________________________________________
This street art is a little different.
With all the new technology regarding fertility, a 65-year- old woman was able to give birth to a baby recently. When she was discharged from the hospital and went home, her relatives came to visit. "May we see the new baby?" one asked. "Not yet," said the mother. "I'll make coffee and we can visit for awhile first." Thirty minutes had passed, and another relative asked, "May we see the new baby now?" "No, not yet," said the mother. After another half hour had elapsed, they asked again, "Can we see the baby now?" "No, not yet," replied the mother. Growing very impatient, they asked, "Well, when CAN we see the baby?" "WHEN HE CRIES!" she told them. "WHEN HE CRIES??" they demanded. "Why do we have to wait until he CRIES??" "BECAUSE, I forgot where I put him."
