In answer to his questions, he was told, "Mommy is at a Tupperware party." This explanation satisfied him for only a moment. Puzzled, he asked, "What's a Tupperware party, Dad?" Bob had always given his son honest answers, so he figured a simple explanation would be the best approach. "Well, son," he said, "at a Tupperware party, a bunch of ladies sit around and sell plastic bowls to each other." He nodded, indicating that he understood this curious pastime. Then he burst into laughter. "Come on, Dad," he said. "What is it really?" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ On beautiful deserted islands in the middle of nowhere, the following people are stranded, each group on separate islands: 2 Italian men and 1 Italian woman 2 German men and 1 German woman 2 Greek men and 1 Greek woman 2 English men and 1 English woman 2 Bulgarian men and 1 Bulgarian woman 2 Japanese men and 1 Japanese woman 2 Chinese men and 1 Chinese woman 2 American men and 1 American woman 2 Irish men and 1 Irish woman 2 Canadian men and 1 Canadian woman One month later, on these absolutely stunning deserted islands in the middle of nowhere, the following things have occurred: One Italian man killed the other Italian man for the Italian woman. The two German men have a strict weekly schedule of alternating visits with the German woman. The two Greek men are sleeping with each other and the Greek woman is cleaning and cooking for them. The two English men are waiting for someone to introduce them to the English woman. The two Bulgarian men took one long look at the endless ocean and another long look at the Bulgarian woman and started swimming. The two Japanese men have faxed Tokyo and are awaiting instructions. The two Chinese men have set up a pharmacy/liquor/store/ restaurant/laundry, and have got the woman pregnant in order to supply employees for their store. The two American men are contemplating the virtues of suicide, because the American woman keeps on complaining about her body, the true nature of feminism, how she can do everything they can do, the necessity of fulfillment, the equal division of household chores, how sand and palm trees make her look fat, how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and treated her nicer than they do, and how her relationship with her mother is improving, etc.. The two Irish men divided the island into north and south and set up distilleries. They do not remember if sex is in the picture because it gets sort of foggy after the first few liters of coconut whiskey. But they're satisfied because at least the English aren't having any fun. The Canadians got the Irish and the English women to immigrate to their island and they are making better whisky than the Irish. Beer too! They don't care who gets whom, as long as there is enough beer and whiskey for everybody. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roxanne for identifying the flowers as Purple Loosestrife _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailorz An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kimberly Felder, 45, Ferndale, California California mother arrested for trying to exorcise or kill 11 year old daughter Northern California mother who claimed she was trying to exorcise demons from her daughter has been booked on suspicion of biting, choking and shoving handfuls of sand into the girl’s mouth and eyes on a crowded beach, authorities said. Kimberly Felder, a 45-year-old Ferndale resident, was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, felony child abuse and aggravated mayhem, Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal said in a statement. The ordeal unfolded about 9 a.m. when authorities received a report of a mother attacking a small girl at Centerville Beach County Park near Ferndale, a small city with Victorian-era homes about 20 miles south of Eureka, Calif. The witness told authorities the mother was trying to perform an exorcism. She had stripped the 11-year-old girl naked and attacked her with sand, Honsal said. As Felder viciously hit, bit and choked the girl, Honsal said, a crowd of 10 to 12 people arrived and saw the incident. During the attack, Felder severely bit her daughter’s right ear, authorities said. Resident John Marciel couldn’t stand by and watch the beating, so he stepped in and restrained Felder, Lt. Ken Swithenbank said. As Marciel fought with Felder on the ground, she struck her daughter on the head with a piece of driftwood, authorities said. A sheriff’s deputy later arrived and arrested Felder. As deputies took Felder into custody, Marciel tended to the girl, Swithenbank said. The girl was hospitalized for multiple injuries. She will probably require reconstructive surgery to her ear, he said. It is unclear what led the mother to believe her daughter was possessed and needed an exorcism, Swithenbank said. The incident, he said, was “strange “ and “very disturbing” for deputies. Authorities said if it were not for Marciel’s heroism and swift actions, the girl would have been killed. “He was shook up pretty good,” Swithenbank said. “It’s very heroic what he did.” For his heroism, the lieutenant said, sheriff’s officials have requested that Marciel be recognized with the Red Cross Lifesaver Award. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Frank Re: Zeus browser hijacker Dear Webby, Was reading an article on Newsweek page about WWii artifacts found in South American and the following appeared while reading. I run Malware Bytes. What should I do??? Frank ZEUS VIRUS DETECTED blah blah blah call 888.... Dear Frank It's not a virus, just a scam with a browser hijack. They just mess with your browser. Just reset the browser cache and defaults. You can write to Malwarebytes support and get more information about it. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________ From Frank: Webby, Here is the response from Malwarebytes and it is more than I wanted to know. It is going to take some time for me to attempt to sort this out since I'm older than you and not very computer literate. I'm truly glad to know you have my back on many occasions. Perhaps this will provide insight for others having problem also. Peace and Blessings Frank Frank Subject: Zeus Virus This message was sent in reference to Case #: 1388130. ----------------- JUN 21, 2017 | 07:08AM PDT Maurice replied: Hello Frank, Welcome to Malwarebytes support, my name is Maurice and I’ll be assisting you today. This scam page is using a multitude of false claims to get you freaked out so that you call the scammer. None of this is true. Thanks for relaying the phone number. This type of scam display is not any actual “infection”. It is a scam “lure”. “zeus” is a fake, lure. It is a displayed fake page that shows on a web browser. It can be got rid of by using a few keyboard key-presses, or using Task Manager, resetting the browser, or by powering off the machine. Waiting a bit, then power back up and allow Windows to reload. Each customer should also beef up each web browser, do some tweaks, and ad a ad block. Getting rid of bogus screen (s): You can easily use keyboard keypress shortcuts to get rid of the false pages displayed. ( see below). What you had experienced is NOT an infection. Not a virus; nor a malware. It is a scam / fake tech support scheme. Contrary to what one may have thought, it does not “lock” the machine. You can still press the Windows-key on keyboard to get the Windows menu. You can use a variety of Windows Keyboard shortcuts to get around to other choices for remedy. When this fake is in the foreground and in a web browser, there are many ways to get it off the screen. I would suggest to do a few keyboard presses to get rid of the windows on-screen. Press and hold ALT-key on keyboard and then tap the F4 function key a to get the foreground windows closed and done away with. ( repeat use of ALT + F4 sequence). ALT + F4 is especially helpful against the smaller window ( if any) that is up in front. ALT + HOME key on the keyboard will put your browser page back onto your prior choice for Home page. That easily deals with the bigger full page displayed. Then while still in the web browser, press and hold SHIFT + CTRL + DELete keys to start the process to delete all browser cache & history. Another way is to press and hold CTRL key on keyboard and then tap W key. CTRL + W That should close the Tab page of the web browser. You can repeat as needed. Another way: is to open a new Tab by using CTRL +T ( that opens a new tab). Then you can use your mouse go to the rogue tab & then click the X control on the upper right top of the rogue tab-window). Have patience when you try this. And, there is always the ability to end the web-browser program thru using Windows’ Task Manager applet. Click the Start button and type: taskmgr.exe and then press Enter. In the processes tab, find the process for whichever browser you are running: iexplore.exe, firefox.exe, chrome.exe, MicrosoftEdge.exe, MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe and then click End Process or Terminate. Look at the following Malwarebytes Blog article and scroll down to the section marked Clear your browser’s cache and do that for each of your web browser programs. https://blog.malwarebytes.com/puppum/2017/04/adware-the-series-part-1/ RESET web browser program: Which one of the web browsers is this on ?

The Dean of Women at an exclusive girls' school was lecturing her students on sexual morality. "We live today in very difficult times for young people. In moments of temptation," she said, "ask yourself just one question: Is an hour of pleasure worth a lifetime of shame?" A young woman rose in the back of the room and said, "Excuse me, but how do you make it last an hour?"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Gluten Free Peach Cobbler By Litter Gitter [220 Posts, 692 Comments] I experimented making a gluten free Peach cobbler by using gluten free bisquick. It turned out irresistible. I tasted it when it came out of the oven and couldn't keep my spoon out of it while cooking dinner. After dinner, I just had to have another piece. My husband wanted a second helping also. He said all it needed was a scoop of ice cream on top. When we started doing the dishes, he looked at what was left of the peach cobbler and asked me, "Did you eat that much?" I couldn't deny it. Ingredients: 1/4 cup butter 1 cup Gluten Free Bisquick 1 cup sugar 1/2 tsp vanilla 2 eggs 1 15 ounce can sliced peaches Steps: Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Place butter in 8x8 inch Pyrex dish. Place in oven to melt. Drain juice from the peaches. Mix eggs, sugar and vanilla together. Add peach juice and mix. Add bisquick and mix well. Pour the batter into hot melted butter. Drop spoonfuls of peaches evenly onto the batter. Bake 35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream while warm. Enjoy!

____________________________________________________ A woman in Arkansas brought her baby in to see the doctor, and he determined right away the baby had an ear ache. He wrote a prescription for ear drops. In the directions he wrote, "Put two drops in right ear every four hours" and he abbreviated "right" as an R with a circle around it. Several days passed, and the woman returned with her baby, complaining that the baby still had an earache, and his little behind was getting really greasy with all those drops of oil. The doctor looked at the bottle of ear drops and sure enough, the pharmacist had typed the following instructions on the label: "Put two drops in R ear every four hours."
