______________________________________________________ Reported by Moe: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Amy Rebello-McCarthy, 39, Newton, Massachusetts MA drunk driver had Bearded Dragon lizard in her bra A Massawhosits woman was found with an exotic lizard in her bra following a drunk driving arrest on Tuesday, police said. Amy Rebello-McCarthy, 39, of Newton, was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of liquor, driving to endanger and a marked lane violation. Her car hit six mailboxes before it left the roadway and went onto a lawn — flattening all four tires and ripping off both bumpers —Tuesday afternoon on Staple Street in Taunton. "She came down here and went airborne," said Faith Adams, a witness who described the crash path into the mailboxes. When police arrived and approached Rebello-McCarthy, they said she began laughing. She was also slurring her words and at times drooling. Before she was transported to the police station, she told police that she had a bearded dragon in her bra. "You have to keep the lizard warm, they're cold blooded. That's why she carried it in her bra," Cindy Berglund, another witness to the crash, said. Berglund added that the driver was mumbling when she got out of the car. "She couldn't stand up. She couldn't talk," Berglund said. "She was out of it." A man who was with her — who police said was also slurring his words — was found with what appeared to be a semi-automatic weapon tucked in his waistband. He was subdued after a brief tussle. He was taken into protective custody. (Drunk tank) The gun turned out to be an airsoft gun, not a real firearm. The bearded dragon was not injured and is now in the possession of the Taunton animal control officer for feeding until Amy Rebello-McCarthy gets out of jail. They are harmless and eat insects, flowers and fruit. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Veronica Re: Sharpening pictures Dear Webby Why can't a picture that has been sharpened (increase contrast) too much, be restored after saving? I found that if I sharpen a picture and then save it, it often turns blotchy, and softening it does not reverse the previous sharpening. What is the story behind that? By the way, I use Paint Shop Pro. Veronica Dear Veronica Always keep the file format in PSP or PSD until all editing is finished, and then finally save a JPG copy. The PSP format stores a reversible history, JPG doesn't. When you increase contrast, you throw away mid tones. Softening creates mid tones by averaging. Those mid tones are not the same as the original ones. When you save a picture as a JPG and use compression, you throw away additional mid tones. You can't get those back either. That is why it is so important to save an original in .psp or .psd format. Quite often, instead of sharpening, all you need is clarifying. That reduces fuzziness or mist by throwing away only the lighter mid tones, but leaving the darker ones. Have FUN! DearWebby
Employee Evaluation Be sure to read through to the bottom... 1 Bob Smith, my assistant programmer, can always be found 2 hard at work in his cubicle. Bob works independently, without 3 wasting company time talking to colleagues. Bob never 4 thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always 5 finishes given assignments on time. Often he takes extended 6 measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee 7 breaks. Bob is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no 8 vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound 9 knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Bob can be 10 classed as a high-caliber employee, the type which cannot be 11 dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that Bob be 12 promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be 13 executed as soon as possible. Addendum: That idiot was standing over my shoulder while I wrote the report sent to you earlier today. Kindly re-read only the odd numbered lines.

Daily tip from Using a Binder Clip for Toothpaste By joanWZ [70 Posts, 21 Comments] When pushing toothpaste from the bottom to the top, sometimes we cannot help it that we'll push the tube in the middle. And one more thing, if the toothpaste is half empty already, we have to keep pushing to get out! So what I did was use those binder clip from my office. Fold the bottom of the toothpaste tube and clip it with the binder. Easy, yet helpful.
Walking on edge of tower in Toronto
____________________________________________________ A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He asked his father, who was a minister, if they could discuss the use of the car. His father took him to his study and said to him, "I'll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study your bible a little and get your hair cut and we'll talk about it." After about a month the boy came back and again asked his father if they could discuss use of the car. They again went to the father's study where his father said, "Son, I've been real proud of you. You have brought your grades up, you've studied your bible diligently, but you didn't get your hair cut!" The young man waited a moment and replied, "You know Dad, I've been thinking about that. You know, Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair...." To which his father replied... "Yes, and nobody lent a car to any of them either!" ___________________________________________________

Todd's wife bought a new line of expensive cosmetics guaranteed to make her look years younger. After a lengthy sitting before the mirror applying the "miracle" products, she asked, "Darling, honestly, what age would you say I am?" Looking over her carefully, Todd replied, "Judging from your skin, twenty; your hair, eighteen; and your figure, twenty five." "Oh, you flatterer!" she gushed. "Hey, wait a minute!" Todd interrupted, pausing at the door, ready to sprint fro his life. "I haven't added them up yet."

Thanks to Martin for this story: A little boy was walking down a dirt road after church one Sunday afternoon when he came to a crossroads where he met a little girl coming from the other direction. Hello," said the little boy. Hi," replied the little girl. Where are you going?" asked the little boy. I've been to church this morning and I'm on my way home," answered the little girl. Me too," replied the little boy. "I'm also on my way home from church." Which church do you go to?" asked the little boy. I go to the Baptist church back down the road," replied the little girl. What about you?" I go to the Catholic church back at the top of the hill," replied the little boy. They discover that they are both going the same way so they decided that they'd walk together. They came to a low spot in the road where spring rains had partially flooded the road so there was no way that they could get across to the other side without getting wet. "If I get my new Sunday dress wet my Mom's going to skin me alive," said the little girl. My Mom'll tan my hide too if I get my new Sunday suit wet," replied the little boy. "I tell you what I think I'll do," said the little girl. "I'm gonna pull off all my clothes and hold them over my head and wade across." "That's a good idea," replied the little boy. "I'm going to do the same thing with my suit." So they both undressed and waded across to the other side without getting their clothes wet. They were standing there in the sun waiting to drip dry before putting their clothes back on when the little boy finally remarked, "You know, I never did realize before just how much difference there really is between a Baptist and a Catholic."
