One group is all girl scouts and the other is all boy scouts. Once upon the bus, the boy scouts head upstairs and the girl scouts hang out on the bottom level. The girl scouts group has a ball. They're whooping it up and having a great time when one of them realizes she doesn't hear anything from the boys upstairs. She decides to go and check on them. When she gets up to the top deck, she finds all of the boys frozen in fear, staring straight ahead, each clutching the seat in front of them. "Whoa, whoa -- what's going on here? We're having a GREAT time downstairs!" One of the boys replies through chattering, frightened teeth, "Yeah, but you girls have a driver!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ >From Bonnie: During a visit to a military medical clinic, I was sent to the lab to have blood drawn. The technician there was friendly and mentioned that his mood improved every day because he was due to leave the service in two months. As he applied the tourniquet on my arm, he told me that taking the blood wouldn't hurt much. Then, noticing my Air Force T-shirt he asked me what my husband did. When I replied that he was a recruiter, the technician smiled slyly and said, "This might hurt a little more than I thought." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to dad for this picture.

She said she was caught once when she tried to leave Walmart with three flat-screen televisions. Cormaney made an initial court appearance on June 8 and did not enter a plea. A preliminary hearing is set for Wednesday. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Randall Re: Stuttering video Dear Webby, Hope your eyes are doing better these days. I just got a new computer about a month ago and since that day when i try to play a video, it plays for about 10 or 15 seconds and then it seems to start clocking and then it starts again and about a minute later it does the same thing. iĀ have tried to change the setup for the video but to no avail....i just don't understand. could it be the speed of my internet connection doing this? any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Randall Dear Randall Yes, that is the speed of your connection. There is nothing you can do on your side. You can try stuttering it through once, then playing it again and hope your computer cached it all and is then playing it from the cache. Forget streaming video like online cooking courses or sermons. The stuttering will ruin them. Consider upgrading your connection to DSL, if you can. If you have neighbors close by, you can set up a wifi and sell them a share for half of your connection cost. They won't get into your computer, but will be able to use your DSL as if they were a family member in the next room. Unless they have kids, who download huge movies, you won't notice any slowdown. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Japanese Style Fried Chicken (Karaage) By attosa [334 Posts, 1,543 Comments] Karaage (pronounced kara-ah-geh) is a super yummy Japanese style fried chicken. It has always been my favourite as far as fried foods. You can have them as an appetizer, but we eat them as one of many little dishes when we make Japanese food. It's delightful with a squeeze of lemon and superfine powdered salt. Total Time: 30 minutes Ingredients: 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into 1 inch chunks 2 Tbsp soy sauce 2 tsp grated fresh ginger 2 Tbsp Mirin or Japanese sake (or any rice wine or dry sherry) 1/4 cup corn or potato starch 1/4 cup all purpose flour oil for frying lemon wedges Steps: In a plastic bag or in a bowl, add chicken, soy sauce, and ginger and toss until chicken is thoroughly coated in marinade. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 8 hours. Heat oil in a large pot or wok over high heat until it reaches 350F. Whisk cornstarch and flour in a bowl. Add cornstarch and flour mixture to chicken pieces until well coated. Carefully add chicken to oil one at a time, making sure not to crowd the pot. Cook in batches, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes each batch. Drain on a paper towel. Serve immediately, garnished with lemon slices and a side of powdered salt. Enjoy! Keep a metal lid handy while the oil is heating, and don't go checking your email in the meantime. Oil fires are harmless if you have a metal lid to put onto the pot, but will destroy your home if you try to use water to put the fire out. Just put the metal lid on the pot, turn off the burner and with electrical stoves, move the pot to a cool area of the stove top. Then go outside for five minutes. Everything will be fine. Any other method to deal with oil fires is stupid and often suicidal. Keep a metal lid handy when using oil for deep frying! I don't want to lose subscribers! Here you can see a brave firefighter demonstrating what happens with different methods of dealing with an oil fire. Have FUN! DearWebby

____________________________________________________ >From Liz: My husband is wonderful with our baby daughter, but often he turns to me for advice. Recently, I was in the shower when he poked his head in to ask, "What should I feed Lily for lunch?" "That's up to you," I replied. "There's all kinds of food. Why don't you pretend I'm not at home?" A few minutes later, my cell phone rang. I answered it to hear my husband asking, "Yeah, hi, Honey. Uh...what should I feed Lily for lunch?" ___________________________________________________

>From Linda While I was shopping in the mall with my three children, a display in the window of a lingerie store caught my eye. "Do you think Daddy would like this?" I asked the kids, as I pointed to the lacy pyjamas with matching robe. "No way," my horrified six-year-old son replied. "Daddy would never wear that!"

____________________________________________________ Two little boys in first grade were chosen to be the leads in their first school play. It was to be a Shakespearean play. The first boy was to say "My fair maiden... I have come to snatch a kiss and fill your soul with hope." The second little boy was to reply by saying, "Hark, a pistol shot." Well, on opening night in the school auditorium, the two little boys were a bit nervous, knowing that all the seats were going to be filled with grown ups. The teacher told them to take their places on the stage and to remember to speak very loud as soon as the curtain goes up. The curtain rose and looking out upon the audience the two boys were terrified. They stood there staring out at the audience, frozen. So the teacher whispered for them to begin. The first boy yelled out these unforgettable words: "My fair maiden... I have come to kiss your snatch!! And fill your hole with soap." The second boy yelled..."Hark! A shistol pot! A postle shidd! A shiddle pot!" He turned and while fleeing the stage screamed: "AAAAARGH! I never wanted to be in this stupid play anyway!." The audience was howling.
