______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by James Bradley Deese, 23, Union, South Carolina SC man drove 106 mph with small kids unbuckled in the car Deputies say they arrested a Union man who they clocked driving over 100 mph with two small children unbuckled in the back seat. James Bradley Deese, 23, was charged by the Union County Sheriff’s Office with reckless driving and driving under suspension. He was also ticketed for having two unrestrained children in the vehicle. Deputies say they started following Deese just before 9 p.m. Wednesday on Lockhart Highway. Radar indicated he was driving 106 mph. Deese slowed down to 86 mph when deputies turned on blue lights to pull the small car over. It was during the talk with Deese that deputies say they noticed two small children were in the back seat of the car. They were not restrained or wearing seat belts, according to the incident report. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Britta P Re: Phone plus DSL at the same time Dear Webby Is it safe to dump my first phone number and just use the second one that has the DSL on it? Would I get knocked off the net if somebody calls in or if I call out? How does that work, in simple terms please! Thanks Britta P Dear Britta It's perfectly safe to do that. The phone and the DSL share the wire, but they use different frequencies. An analogy would be a glass fiber or rod that passes light through it. A beam of red light would carry the phone stuff, and a beam of blue light would carry the Internet stuff. At each end is a crystal prism that splits the light into the different colors of the rainbow. The phone only sees the red and reddish colors, and the DSL modem only sees the blue and bluish colors. Neither the phone nor the DSL modem see or are aware of what goes on in the other device's color band. Exactly the same happens with your phone cable. Neither the phone nor the DSL modem see or are aware of what goes on in the other device's frequency band. Have FUN! DearWebby

Magdalena spent some months serving God in Kenya. On her final visit to a remote township Magdalena attended a medical clinic. As the Maasai women there began to sing together, Magdalena was deeply moved by their hauntingly beautiful harmonies and wanted to always remember this moment and recorded it to share it with friends after getting home. With tears flowing down the cheeks, Magdalena turned to a local and asked, "Can you please tell me the translation of the words to this song?" The local looked at Magdalena and solemnly replied, "If you boil the water, you won't get the shits."

After a hardy Arkansas rainstorm filled all the potholes in the back alley, a young mother watched her two little boys playing in a water puddle through her kitchen window. The older of the two, a five year old lad, grabbed his sibling by the back of the head and shoved his face into the water hole. As the younger boy recovered and stood laughing and dripping, the mother ran to the back yard in a panic."Why on Earth did you do that to your little brother?"she inquired as she shook the older boy in anger. "We were just playing 'church,' Mommy" He said. "I was baptizing him like the preacher did in church last Sunday. I said, "I now baptize you in the name of the father, the son, and in-the-hole-he-goes!"
