The survey was conducted by the Innovation Center of US Dairy in April. 1,000 adults 18 and over were asked questions about the role milk plays in their daily lives, Food & Wine reported. The study found 48% of respondents weren't sure where chocolate milk came from. Seven percent thought chocolate milk only comes from brown cows. That adds up to about 16.4 million people, more than the population of Ohio. The Washington Post linked the study to past studies that consistently show many Americans have no idea where their food comes from. For example, a study in the 1990s found that nearly 20% of people did not know hamburgers are made from beef. ___________ Noella checked various places, and the report seems to be true. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A man hated to lose at golf and one day he was playing in a foursome and his ball landed in a sand trap. Hidden from view, the rest of the group could hear him as he hacked away at the ball. When he finally drove it out, and rejoined the group and one of them asked him how many strokes he took to get the ball out of the sand trap. The man said, "Three." Another member of the group said, "Oh, come on! I heard six." "Well, three of them were echoes." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Lillemor for this picture. _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Randy Dewayne Vert, 29, Pinson, Alabama Alabama man arrested after low-speed chase in stolen flatbed truck after unable to get out of 1st gear A Pinson man is behind bars after leading Jefferson County sheriff's deputies on a low-speed chase in a stolen delivery truck early Wednesday. It all began just after 4:30 a.m. when deputies responded to the 1200 block of Birchwood Street to investigate a report of a suspicious vehicle sitting in the road with lights on and no one around. They arrived and checked the car. It was not stolen, said Chief Deputy Randy Christian. While checking the car, a citizen informed them that a man had just stolen a Kenworth T-300 flatbed delivery truck nearby. Deputies spotted the truck as it turned on to Huffman Road and attempted to stop the vehicle. The driver later identified as 29-year-old Randy Dewayne Vert refused to stop and continued driving south on Center Point Parkway, Christian said. Vert was apparently unfamiliar with the complexities of a manual transmission, he said, and was unable to get the truck out of first gear. The truck traveled at speeds of 25-30 mph on to I-59 south. Deputies followed the truck along I-59 south to Bush Boulevard where the transmission seized and the truck stopped. Vert was removed from the truck the hard way and arrested. He is charged with first-degree theft of property, reckless endangerment, attempting to elude and resisting arrest. He was booked into the Jefferson County jail shortly before 7 a.m. and remains in lockup with bonds totaling $5,900. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Randall Re: Custom icons Dear Webby, Hope you are in good health with your eyes, but i have a question i know you can help me with, I hope. I have made shortcuts on my desktop for my support groups but the short cuts have the generic picture of Firefox on them. how can i put theĀ actual group picture in the short cutĀ icon? or can it be done at all? again love the jokes and pictures and the help you give out daily.... thanks in advance for the help.. Randall Dear Randall You can make icons easily. 1) Get the pictures ready. 2) Size them to 64 x 64 3) Save them as .BMP, yes BMP. I know, it is a totally obsolete format, but Microsoft wants to be backward compatible all the way back to Windows 1. In those days we only had GIF for low resolution, and BMP for high resolution, and JPG not widely known during the years of development of Windows 1. On 8" by 8" Greenie monitors that was good enough. Save it to an easily findable location. 4) close the picture after saving it, for example group1.BMP 5) Use the file explorer and rename the file to group1.ico 6) Right-click the FF icon for Group1, select Properties 7) Change icon is at the bottom, middle. 8) Browse to the icon you just made, select it, hit APPLY and OK. 9) Don't forget to hit APPLY. That's all there is to it. Do the same for all the other ones. Have FUN! DearWebby
A husband, proving to his wife that women talk more than men, showed her a study which indicated that men use on the average only 15,000 words a day, where as women use 30,000 words a day. She thought about this for awhile and then told her husband that women use twice as many words as men because they have to repeat everything they say. He said, "What?"
