"Would you mind telling me, Doctor," she asked, "how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?" "Nothing is easier," he replied. "You ask him a simple question which everyone should answer with no trouble. If he hesitates, that puts you on the track." "What sort of question?" "Well, you might ask him, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?' The hostess thought a moment, then said with a nervous laugh, "You wouldn't happen to have another example would you?

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by DUH? Abby Hart, 33, St. Johns Florida St. Johns County woman passed out in running Jeep A St. Johns woman was found passed out in a Jeep -- with the windows up and her foot on the brake, a St. Johns County Sheriff's report said. Abby Hart, 33, was charged with DUI shortly after being found around noon on Tuesday. The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office received a report that a 2016 Jeep Laredo was driving erratically on Valley Ridge Parkway near Nocatee. Hart's Jeep was followed by a deputy and later found sitting in the left turn lane on U.S. 1 to Race Track Road. The Jeep had not moved despite several green lights, the report said. Deputies said they were forced to wedge a patrol car in front of the Jeep to prevent Hart from waking up and possibly causing a crash by driving off. Hart did wake up, deputies said, and her Jeep moved forward and struck a patrol car. Hart had a Sutter Home Pinot Grigio wine bottle between her legs, the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said, and several empty bottles in the front seat. When Hart was asked where she was going, she said she was going home and that the police needed to let her go, the report said. She also attempted to go back to sleep while in the car, police said. Hart refused to perform field sobriety tests and refused to take a breath test, police said. Hart was held overnight in the St. Johns County Jail and was released early Wednesday on $1,000 bail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Janina Re: Forwards Dear Webby, I imagine you get this question now and then but I would like to ask you anyway.... those silly "forwards" we get that say .....

Daily tip from Growing Peppers in Containers By Duane De Vries [1 Post, 59 Comments] I'm in West Michigan, zone 5 I think. I have very good success using what is referred to as Self Watering Containers. I use 5 gallon food grade plastic buckets that I get from a pizza shop. If you are not familiar with Self Watering Containers they are a container with a false bottom about 3 inches or so from the real bottom. Cut an opening in this false bottom and fasten a plastic jar that has holes int it. When you fill the container with your potting soil, fill this first, then the rest of the container. This will act as a wick to draw up water. I put a length of tubing (hose or whatever) through the false bottom so it extends out the top for easy access. Drill an overflow hole in the bucket about a half inch or so below the false bottom. Then when adding water through the tube, if you add too much, it will drain out. This method allows the plants to draw water as needed. I have successfully grown regular tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, a variety of peppers (green bell, hot peppers) in these. They are spread about on my deck as my arthritis prevents me from the old style of garden. I'm very pleased with the results.

____________________________________________________ John had given Judi one of those new fangled electric coffee makers for an anniversary present. Within a week she was taking it back to the store. The lady at the return counter asked her if it worked. "Oh sure, it makes a great cup of coffee. Just like the booklet said, I plug it in, set the timer, go on to bed, and, when I get up, the coffee's ready!" "So, ma'am, what's wrong with it?" "I don't want to have to go to bed every time I want to make a pot of coffee." ___________________________________________________
Seven materials that may change our lives forever.
One cold and rainy day, a French tourist in Scotland decided to find out if the natives were as tight as he had heard. He stopped at a farm cottage, told the farmer's wife he was freezing to death, and was invited to come in and warm himself at the hearth. Once inside the house, he complained of being thirsty. The woman handed him an enormous white crockery mug filled with milk. After taking a big swig, the guest exclaimed, "This is sweet and fresh ... you are most generous!" She replied modestly, "It's nothing. My family wouldn't drink that milk because we found a dead rat in it." Sick to his stomach, the Frenchman clapped both hands over his mouth, allowing the huge mug to fall to the floor and shatter on the stone floor. The Scotswoman grabbed her broom, raised it high in the air, brought it down on the visitor's head, and hollered, "Get out, you ungrateful pig! I take you in my home, I let you share my fire, I give you milk to drink ... and now you repay my kindness by breaking the children's potty chair!"

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Dianne, who used to have a trucking company, for this story: Truck driving in 1962 Back about 1962 when I had just started driving tank trucks, me and my instructor each drove separate trucks. One night as we were returning to our delivery area, we were hauling road oil, we stopped for coffee at an old truck stop along old route 66 in south central Illinois. As we drank our coffee outside the restaurant, two guys came along with a large male raccoon. My instructor asked what they were going to with it and they said "we don't know" My buddy asked them:"Do you want to see something funny?" They said sure, so my buddy gets an old gym bag out of his truck, dumps his stuff out of it, borrows a pair of gloves and stuffs that mad raccoon into the bag and zips it shut. The next move was to take the bag set it alongside the main highway and run back to the station parking lot. Just as planned, an old turquoise Plaza Plymouth screeches to a stop, a long arm reaches out and snags the bag. Off they go with a cloud of blue smoke following them. About the time the car gets to sixty, more blue smoke from sliding tires, the doors fly open and everybody bails out and they are looking back. Pretty soon that nasty raccoon comes ambling out of the car, and everybody in the parking lot is on the ground laughing. Well worth the loss of an old gym bag.
