So I fished it out and threw it in the garbage. Zachary stood there thinking for a moment, then ran to my bathroom and came out with my toothbrush. He held it up and said with a charming little smile, "We better throw this one out too then, 'cause it fell in the toilet a few days ago." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ >From Betty This was written by a black guy in Texas.....so funny..... what a great sense of humor and creativity!!!

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tremaine Jamison, 27, Harlem, New York Harlem man shot and killed Pensylvania man at kindergarten graduation party Police say a New York City man fatally shot a Pennsylvania man who was hosting a kindergarten graduation party for his son and several other children. Witnesses tell state police that a fight or rough play between the victim's 6-year-old son and another 6-year-old led to an argument between adults that ended when 27-year-old Tremaine Jamison shot 29-year-old Devon Brown in the head. The party and shooting happened Wednesday evening at the Marion Terrace Apartments in Hanover Township, Luzerne County. That's near Wilkes-Barre, about 20 miles (32.2 kilometers) southwest of Scranton. Online court records show troopers have charged Jamison with criminal homicide and possessing a prohibited weapon by a felon. Police say Jamison lives in the Harlem section of New York City and police were continuing to search for him Friday. Jamison has previously been arrested for narcotics possession in New York City. He also served time for robbery. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Enjo Re: Why are the blacklists listing me? Dear Webby I dont spam, but I have a formal newsletter that, just like yours, jumps through all the hoops, but now I am blocked by Yahoo and all their fake fronts like SBCglobal, ATT.net, etc. Why is that? Enjo Dear Enjo Most likely that is due to bouncing, and not your newsletter. When somebody sends spam to you with a fake name before the @, then traditionally that is bounced back to the sender. Nowadays that is used to load down a server and break down the defenses. A hacker generates countless spams that have for example your name mis-spelled in the TO line, and a business or government address forged in as the sender. So your server bounces those phony mails to that business or Government server. When the hackers use a whole network of infected home computers to send a Million phony mails like that, the bounces overwhelm the victims server. The formal name for that is "Backscatter". If your server bounces mails like that, it gets put into some blacklists. `Not all, but some of the blacklists demand $100 or more to take you off their blacklist. Quite a racket! The trick is to NOT get onto those blacklists in the first place. Set your server to never send bounces. Also, turn off all autoresponders. Some of the Blacklists send out entrapment mails. If that entrapment mail bounces back to their trap, your server is blacklisted and Yahoo blocks mail from your server. So, stop all traditional bouncing from your server. It`s just another hoop you have to jump through nowadays. Have FUN! DearWebby
Thanks to Dianne for this classic: Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business. Several members did not approve of her extra-curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence. She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, the plumber, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his pickup parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon. She emphatically told George and several others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing. George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing. Later that evening, George and his crew of plumbers apprentices quietly parked their pickup trucks in front of Mildred's house............. and left them there all night.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Microwave Corn on the Cob By Jackie H. [230 Posts, 109 Comments] You will never boil corn on the cob again. This is easy, and the tastiest, sweetest corn ever. You are not boiling all the flavor out of corn. You can cook 1 or up to 4 at a time. The time may vary with how many you are cooking. 4 minutes in the Microwave, turning over at 2:00 minutes. Add 1 minute for add'l ears of corn. Follow examples in pictures. Being cautious of hot corn when it comes out of the Microwave. Using Mitts or pot holders is wise. Total Time: 4:00 minutes for 1 ear of corn, add'l 1 per ear. Yield: As many as you wish to cook. Source: Online for Microwave cooking! Steps: Start by removing old dark husks that are loose only. With a large sharp knife, cut of stump and about 1/4 inch into the corn. Cut away the loose silk and dead husks at the top. Rinse well in cold water. Put Corn wrapped in wet paper towel in Microwave Cook on high for 4:00 minutes, turning over after 2:00 minutes. Carefully removing from Microwave with Mitts or pot holders. With a Paper towel, just squeeze the thin end of the corn and your corn should come sliding out with no husks or silk. Keep squeezing until corn falls out neat & clean Ready to eat, Hot, sweet and delicious.
And then there is the bachelor way: Rinse the cobs Toss the cobs into the microwave Nuke them for 4 minutes Cut off the fat end at the largest point Grab the hairy end with an oven mitt and squeeze. IF you cut the fat end at the largest point, the corn will slide out without any silk. Until you get the hang of cutting at the largest point, you may have to re-cut a bit. Most corn is very fussy about that. If you cut it right, it slides out with minimal effort. Butter it a bit, sprinkle salt and pepper on it, and enjoy! Have FUN! DearWebby

____________________________________________________ Two college seniors with an exam the next day had decided to party the night away instead of study. So, when they went to the test the next morning, they explained to the professor that their car had a flat tire the night before and they needed a bit more time to study. The professor gave them another day, so that evening the boys crammed all night until they were sure that they knew just about everything. Arriving to class the following morning, each boy was told to go into separate classrooms to take the exam. They shrugged and went into their respective rooms. As each sat down, they read the first question: "For 5 points, explain the contents of an atom." At this point, they both thought the exam was going to be a piece of cake and answered the question with ease. Then, the test continued: "For 95 points, tell me which tire it was." ___________________________________________________
I'll bet this smells divine.
Thanks to Kati for this story: Have you ever told a white lie? Alice was to bake a cake for the ladies' bridge group bake sale, but she forgot to do it until the last minute. She baked an angel food cake and when she took it from the oven, the center had dropped flat. She said, "Oh dear, there's no time to bake another cake." So, she looked around the house for something to build up the center of the cake. Alice found it in the bathroom ... a roll of toilet paper. She plunked it in and covered it with icing. The finished product looked beautiful, so she rushed it to the sale. Before she left the house, Alice had given her daughter some money and specific instructions to be at the bake sale the minute it opened, and to buy that cake and bring it home. When the daughter arrived at the sale, the attractive cake had already been sold. Alice was beside herself. The next day, Alice was invited to a friend's home where two tables of bridge were to be played that afternoon. After the game, a fancy lunch was served, and to top it off, the cake in question was presented for dessert. Alice saw the cake, she started to get out of her chair to rush into the kitchen to tell her hostess all about it, but before she could get to her feet, one of the other ladies said, "What a beautiful cake!" Alice sat back in her chair and almost wet herself when she heard the hostess say .. "Thank you, I baked it myself."
