Hoping to resolve the situation, I enlarged my name on the mailbox, but he still kept giving me the wrong letters. Finally, I left a note saying that he was delivering the mail incorrectly. The next day I went to the box to find this addition to my message: "Sir, I am delivering the mail correctly. You're just living at the wrong address." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ At our local funeral home families are given the chance to chose the music they would like to enter the service to. One family asked to enter to Elvis Presley's hit, "Love me Tender." The day of the funeral arrived and the music was started ready for the family to walk in to the service. Unfortunately the wrong track number was entered into the CD player, and the family found themselves walking in to, "Return to Sender." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Jo Requillas Bagadiong from "We Love Lighthouses" Oryukdo Lighthouse in South Korea _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Alexander Shae Johnson, 22, Orlando, Florida TSA worker caught stealing cash from bag at Orlando airport Most of us have had valuables stolen by TSA employees, and of course they always stick together and deny it. Here finally one got caught. Let's hope he gets a judge, from whom TSA employees have stolen a camera or other valuables. A Transportation Security Administration employee has been arrested after video showed him stealing cash at a Florida airport. The Orlando Sentinel reports 22-year-old Alexander Shae Johnson was arrested on Thursday and records say he faces a third- degree felony grand theft charge. A passenger selected for a pat-down search while going through security at Orlando International Airport saw Johnson standing near her bag. Orlando police say she went through her bag afterward and realized cash was missing before noticing a bulge in Johnson's shirt pocket that turned out to be money. Johnson was arrested despite saying the cash was his, as video showed otherwise. The TSA said in a statement that Johnson was fired. Johnson was released on bail from the Orange County jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Glen Re: Lightning protection for DSL Dear Webby, We are moving to a hilltop and are going to be hit with lightning proabbly as often as the previous owner. I am isolating the power with an electric motor driven generator, so I am not worried about power, just data. What do you recommend to use for lightning protection for the phone and DSL line? Glen Dear Glen Hyperlink Tech makes heavy industrial grade phone line lightning protectors http://www.hyperlinktech.com/web/hgln_dsl.php That will take care of lightning strikes onto phone towers and phone lines. However, I would also add active lightning strike prevention to the building. First, get perfect grounding through metal water and gas lines, plus ground rods. Then put lightning brushes or fans (bundles of sharpened metal rods) every two feet on your roof top. Connect them to ground. They ionize the air and repell and divert lightning. Next put up a metal ham radio tower or any similar metal tower six to 12 feet from the house and 50% higher than the house. Ground that to a separate ground rod system that is not directly connected to the house grounding system. If you set it up like that, even if lightning is headed for your house, it will zig-zag over to the tower and leave the house alone. Have FUN! DearWebby
Dining out one evening I noticed some teenagers celebrating at a nearby table. When one girl pulled out a camera, I offered to take a picture of the group. After one photo I suggested taking another just in case the first one didn't turn out. "That's ok," she said as she took her camera back. "I always get double prints."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Separate Spatulas When Washing By likekinds If you have spatulas with removable tips, It's best to separate them from the handles before washing. When washing the spatulas, water can get in the handle slot and remain there for a long time. This makes a good breeding ground for germs. ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ My friend David's colleague at a package-processing center was trapped in a small rest room by a faulty lock. When he was finally discovered, David and another worker were able to open the door with some difficulty. The lock was still jammed, so they blocked the door open while a maintenance worker was called. A bit later, David noticed the door was closed again. He jiggled the doorknob and a voice from inside called, "Get me out!" "Don't worry," David replied, "Maintenance should be sending somebody." "They did," said the voice. ___________________________________________________
I've eaten this before, it's good, and we have plenty growing all over our farm.
Thanks to Kati for this story: To preface this joke: They started "Dumb Blonde jokes" so brunettes & redheads could understand them. I urgently needed a few days off work, but I knew the boss would not allow me to take a leave. I thought that maybe if I acted "CRAZY" then he would tell me to take a few days off. So I hung upside down on the ceiling and made funny noises. My co-worker (who's blonde) asked me what I was doing? I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb so that the boss would think I was "CRAZY" and give me a few days off. A few minutes later the boss came into the office and asked "What are you doing?" I told him I was a light bulb. He said "You are clearly stressed out. Go home and recuperate for a couple of days." I jumped down and walked out of the office. When my co-worker (the blonde) followed me, the boss asked her "...And where do you think you're going?" She said, "I'm going home too, I can't work in the dark!"

____________________________________________________ A History professor was explaining how society's ideal of beauty changes with time. "Take Miss America in 1855," he noted. "She stood 5'1" tall, weighed 108 pounds, and had measurements of 30-25-36. How do you think she'd do in today's beauty contest?" "One student piped up, "Not very well! She'd be way too old!"
