______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Muhammad Abdul-Haq, 18, Harun Abdul-Haq, 19, Zaakir Abdul-Haq, 23, Freeport, Illinois Three charged after Freeport home invasion Three men arrested on several charges stemming from a Sunday morning home invasion, Freeport Deputy Chief Matt Summers said. Harun Abdul-Haq, 19, of the 900 block of East Shawnee Street, and Muhammad Abdul-Haq, 18, of the 1300 block of West Elm Street, were charged with armed robbery, aggravated battery, residential burglary, conspiracy to commit a home invasion and theft under $500. Their bonds were set at $100,000 each. Summers said the two, who police believe to be brothers, knocked at the door of a home in the 1200 block of South Blackhawk Avenue around 3:45 a.m. They used an undescribed ruse before a resident to let them inside and then they threatened to shoot the victim. They stole about $50 and a cell phone. Summers said the resident told police he knew one of the men was related to a particular family. During the course of their investigation, police also arrested Zaakir Abdul-Haq, 23, of the 1400 block of West Beach Street on a charge of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and two alleged firearm owner’s identification card violations. His bond was set at $40,000. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: FranticFran Re: Diskeeper Dear Webby You used to promote Diskeeper as the best defrag program. But I have not seen your links to it for some time. Did they not keep up with the times? FranticFran Dear FranticFran That is exactly what happened. First they had issues with high resolution monitors, then when they got that almost fixed by using a huge, klutzy font, then they fell down on USB connected external drives. If you have USB connected external drives, then Diskeeper is a total waste of installation time. Nowadays, when almost everybody has a big external drive attached, you simply need a better program than Diskeeper. There are many available, and experts fight lengthy religious battles about which one is better. I will ask Moe for his recommendation. He does comparison tests of defrag programs. Look for his report right here later in the week. Have FUN! DearWebby
>From Paulie According to a CBS poll, women are much better liars than men. At least that's what THEY say . . . so, how will we ever know?

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Making Soda Can Plant Labels By EllenB [810 Posts, 1 Comment] One of my favorite garden crafts is making homemade plant labels from aluminum cans and wire clothes hangers. Not only are they inexpensive and durable, but these labels are actually attractive and fun to make. They are designed to dangle freely on their supports, so when the wind blows their movement makes a gentle clinking noise, turning your tiny reflective plant labels into a collective army of rabbit repellents. Materials: assorted aluminum soda/beer cans wire clothes hangers gloves (to protect hands when cutting cans) old steak knife scissors needle-nose pliers paper punch ball-point pen embellishment tools used (from Michaels craft store): scrapbooking scissors (Fiskars) 3 in 1 corner punch (Fiskars) flower-shaped decorative brads (Provo Craft) Directions: Put on your gloves. Use the tip of your scissors to punch a small hole on the side of each end of the can. If your scissors isn't sharp enough, use a steak knife or screwdriver to get the hole started. Using your scissors, cut off the top and bottom of the can and discard the ends in your recycling bin. If you need to, trim off any excess sharp edges from the remaining piece of aluminum and finesse it a bit until it lays pretty flat. Cut individual labels from the remaining piece of aluminum according to the desired size. The shape and style of your labels is highly personal. Cut them into circles, triangles, rectangles, even flowers. To add some decorative flair, use fancy corner punches or try trimming the edges with scrapbooking scissors. I add color-coded brads to my labels (I found some in the shape of flowers). This helps me organize my plantings and remember what color flower is coming up where. You're only limited by your imagination so have fun with it! Just don't forget to leave room to punch a hole for hanging and space to write down the name of the plant. To write names of plants on your labels, lay them on top of a notebook or thick stack of newspaper and press down hard with a ball point pen. Make sure to press hard enough so that when the ink wears off, the name stays imprinted in the metal. Create a hole for hanging using a paper punch (or a hammer and nail). Finally, use a wire cutter or tin snips to cut 7-8 inch long support pieces from wire coat hangers. Make an "S" hook at one end using a needle-nose pliers, hang the label on the hook, and pinch the "S" shut to keep it from falling off. Voila! You've got durable, inexpensive plant labels!

Knowing 's sweet tooth the mother looked straight into 's eyes and said, "I hope you didn't ask for a second piece of cake!" "No," replied , "but I asked Mrs. Smith for the recipe so you could make some like it, and she gave me two more pieces without me asking." ___________________________________________________
