He needs a new milk cow, and hears about one for sale over in Nordakota. (That would be North Dakota for you non-Scandahoovians out der.) He drives to Nordakota, finds the farm and looks at the cow. He reaches under to see if she gives milk. When he grabs the tit and pulls, the cow farts. Ole is surprised. He looks at the farmer selling the cow, then reaches under the cow to try again. He grabs another tit, pulls, and the cow farts again. Milk does come out however, so after some discussion, Ole buys the cow and takes her home. He gets back to Minnesota, and calls over his neighbor Jimmy Mooney, and says, "Jimmy, come look at dis ere new cow I yust bought. Pull her tit, and see vat happens." So Jimmy reaches under, pulls the tit - and the cow farts. Jimmy looks at Ole and sez, "You bought dis here cow in Nordakota, din'tyah?" Ole is surprised since he hadn't told Jimmy about his trip. Ole replies, "Yah, dats right. But how'd yah now?" Jimmy says, "My wife is from Nordakota." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ My husband went on a sudden business trip, and I accompanied him.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Police Cought Florida Drama Teacher Having Sex With Student in Back of Car Pamela Stigger, 33, Tamarac, Florida A drama teacher in Tamarac, Florida was caught by the police having sex with her 15-year-old student in the back of a car, according to the Miami Herald after local residents complained about an illegally parked car obstructing traffic and nobody in the front seats. Pamela Stigger, 33, claimed she was only trying to mentor him, after police found her at 2 a.m. Thursday, moments after she had engaged in sexual acts with a 15-year-old boy in the back of a car. 2 am mentoring in the back seat? The arrest report said the Sheriff's office found the teenager nude from the waist down and that he told the deputies he had sex with Stigger. According to a Sheriff's office spokesperson: When [Stigger] was questioned about what they were doing and if they had, in fact, engaged in sexual acts, she denied being engaged in these sexual acts, despite the fact that the young man was undressed. Considering that they were in the BACKseat with pants down, that did not fly. She also tried to claim the student tried to seduce her first, before changing her story to flat out denial. Stigger is facing two charges of sexual battery and one count of lewd conduct with a minor. She was the student's drama teacher at Forest Glen Middle School last year and holds a custodial relationship over him. Stigger who has worked for the school since 2008, has been put on administratively reassigned duties away from the school, and will not be permitted access to students. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sandra Re: Why PDF? Dear Webby Why are people using PDF for e-books? It makes it impossible to copy just a few paragraphs or chapters. How do you get around that? Sandra Dear Sandra The main reason why authors use PDF is to protect their hard work from copy-cats like you, who want to steal their work and claim it as their own. The second reason is that PDF makes a book look and print the same no matter what kind of computer the reader uses. The third reason is that it puts everything, text and pictures into a nice, neat package without the need for lots of lose files. If you just want to copy a paragraph to paste up on your fridge, use a graphics program and do a screen capture, size and crop it the way you want it, and then print it. You can import PDF into Office Libre and some other programs. Have FUN! DearWebby
An older couple had a son, who was still living with his parents. The parents were a little worried, as the son was still unable to decide about his future career, so they decided to do a small test. They took a ten-dollar bill, a Bible, and a bottle of whiskey, and put them on the front hall table... then they hid, pretending they were not at home. The father's plan was: "If our son takes the money, he will be a businessman, if he takes the bible, he will be a priest - but if he takes the bottle of whiskey, I'm afraid our son will be a drunkard." So the parents hid in the nearby closet and waited nervously. Peeping through the keyhole they saw their son arrive. The son saw the note they had left. Then, he took the 10-dollar bill, looked at it against the light, and slid it in his pocket. After that, he took the Bible, flicked through it, and took it. Finally he grabbed the bottle, opened it, and took an appreciative whiff to be assured of the quality ... then he left for his room, carrying all three items. The father slapped his forehead, and said: "Darn, it's even worse than I could ever have imagined... " "What's this mean!?" his wife asked quizzically. "I'm afraid our son's going to be a politician!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Growing Chamomile By EllenB [810 Posts, 1 Comment] Description: Chamomile has dainty, daisy-like white flowers with yellow centers set on top of thin stems of feathery green leaves. It comes in creeping or trailing varieties, and seldom grows to more than 12 inches high. Flowers of the creeping varieties contain properties sought after in the herb garden and give off a lovely, apple-like scent. Life Cycle: hardy perennial Exposure: full sun or partial shade Cultivation: Chamomile isn't fussy about the soil it grows in and adapts well to poor conditions. Sow seeds in a sunny location in the spring and once established, plants will readily reseed and spread themselves all over your garden. The plants look straggly when planted on their own and look better in large groups or "drifts". Propagation: division or seeds Parts Used: flowers Harvesting and Storage: Use a scissors to clip flowers from stems just as they fully open. Spread them out on racks or in shallow pans to dry, and store in an airtight container away from direct sunlight. Medicinal Uses: insomnia, digestive relief, and mouthwash Culinary Uses: teas, German Chamomile can be added to sour cream to top potatoes Other Uses: hair care, skin care, wreaths, dried flowers, potpourri, and perennial gardens
Camomile is a very hardy weed and will grow nicely in the center of rural roads even in the Yukon. Once it is firmly established your "Tea Farm" will spread on it's own. Nothing to worry about with lawn. It does not like getting mowed. You can harvest it all you want, just don't ever mow it. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

People are awesome for the month of May 2017.
A tourist walks into a curio shop in San Francisco. Looking around at the exotica, he notices a very lifelike, life-sized bronze statue of a rat. It has no price tag, but is so striking he decides he must have it. He took it to the owner: "How much for the bronze rat?" "Twelve dollars for the rat, one hundred dollars for the story," said the owner. The tourist gave the man twelve dollars. "I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story." As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat, he noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and began following him down the street. This was disconcerting; he began walking faster. But within a couple blocks, the herd of rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they began squealing. He began to trot toward the Bay, looking around to see that the rats now numbered in the MILLIONS, and were squealing and coming toward him faster and faster. Concerned, even scared, he ran to the edge of the Bay and threw the bronze rat as far out into the Bay as he could. Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the Bay after it, and were all drowned. The man walked back to the curio shop. "Ah ha," said the owner, "You have come back for the story?" "No," said the man, "I came back to see if you have a bronze politician?"

"Young man," the mother sternly addressed her son, "there were three cookies in the pantry this morning. May I ask how it happens that there is only one now?" "It was dark so I didn't notice the last one."
