Rachael Leahy, 35, was sentenced Monday. She pleaded no contest last month to criminal solicitation to commit murder. Leahy spoke with an undercover sheriff's detective whom she believed was a hit man in August 2016. She told the detective that her ex-husband could be kidnapped and taken to another country and made into a sex slave. She also suggested that he could die in an apparent accident, like a fire or drowning. Authorities said Leahy wanted her ex-husband gone so she could have custody of their children. She told the detective she could pay him $5,000 after collecting on her ex-husband's life insurance policy. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Cookie Re: Stop automatic updates Dear Webby, Good Morning 'Great Guru' of computers!

Daily tip from Chicken Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce By attosa [339 Posts, 1,593 Comments] I love making Vietnamese spring rolls, especially for summertime picnics and potlucks. They look pretty fancy but they are so easy to make. You can use any number of fillings for yours. Just like any recipe, it's fun to stray from the usual to suit your tastes! Total Time: 30 minutes Yield: 10 spring rolls Ingredients: 10 rice wrappers 1 cup cooked shredded chicken 1 Persian cucumber, julienned 1 medium tomato, sliced 1/4 carrot, sliced thin 3 whole green onions, julienned 1 cup lettuce, shredded 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped 1/2 cup Thai basil leaves 1 cup bean sprouts 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter 1 garlic clove, grated 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice 1 Tbsp soy sauce 1 Tbsp fish sauce (or more soy sauce) 1 tsp sugar 1/3 cup water Steps: Fill a large bowl with warm water. Dip one rice wrapper into the water for 1 second to soften. Lay rice wrapper flat on a work surface. Start laying down your more colourful fillings in the center in a row. I started with carrot, tomato and basil. Add a little bit of each one of the other fillings, leaving about 1.5 inches uncovered on each side. Fold sides inward, then tightly roll the wrapper. It will stick to itself to seal. Repeat with the rest of the wrappers and fillings. To make the dipping sauce, in a bowl, mix together the peanut butter, garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, and water until it's smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with the rolls as a dip and enjoy! Don`t get spooked by her huge number of ingredients! You can think of it as a fridge-cleaner. Use whatever you got handy. The game is reverse fortune cookie. Make everyone guess what is in the rolls and slide their guess ballot into a fortune cookie and pass it on to the person on their right. If nobody guesses it, the cook wins. There are no limits to what you can use. Leftover Macaroni and cheese with ham and pickle bits added, and fine chopped onion and colorful sweet mini peppers is one example. Egg salad with very fine cut spicy, colorful peppers is another example. Tuna salad, if you have more salad than bread, cottage cheese and well drained peach cubes, anything! The only rules are that it is finger food, can be eaten while driving, and does not run or drip into your sleeve. Any suitable chip dip works fine. In a pinch, hand mix almond butter and cream cheese and a pinch of salt. Have FUN! DearWebby
What spooked the deer?

"Mommy, mommy, why has daddy got so few hairs on his head?" asked his mother. "He thinks a lot," replied his mother, pleased with herself for coming up with a good answer to her husband's baldness. Or she was until thought for a second and said, "Mom, I`m sure glad you don`t do any thinking. You would look silly without hair."
