______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jamie Adkins, 25, Brian Dekam, 55, Elyria, Ohio Baby sitters arrested for putting flea-infested kids in the back of a U-Haul truck Two city workers thought something was amiss when they saw five children getting into the back of a U-Haul truck at a gas station. They stopped the driver from leaving and called 911. Elyria police and firefighters arrived Wednesday afternoon and found the children, ranging in age from 2 to 15, soaked with sweat, infested with lice and covered with flea and bedbug bites. A woman who described herself as the children's godmother was in the back of the U-Haul being driven by a 55-year-old man. Her fiance was a passenger in the truck's cab. The woman, 25-year-old Jamie Adkins, explained to officers that she had been caring for the four younger children the last two weeks and that they had left Cleveland early that morning to travel to a flea market in Amherst, a city in Lorain County near Elyria. Adkins said she had called the children's mother, who hadn't seen them for two weeks, and had told her where they were going and how they'd be getting there. Adkins told police the mother said she hoped the kids "would have fun." The 2-year-old, a boy, was taken to an Elyria medical center and then flown to a children's hospital in Cleveland to be treated for heat exhaustion. Elyria is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of downtown Cleveland. Adkins and the U-Haul driver, 55-year-old Brian Dekam, both Cleveland residents, were taken into custody and charged with multiple counts of child endangering. They were eventually released for medical reasons, police said. Court records don't indicate whether they have attorneys. The four older children, ages 3, 4, 6 and 15, have been placed in foster care in Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland. The 2-year-old also will be placed in county custody after leaving the hospital. Elyria police Capt. Chris Constantino on Friday called the two city workers heroes for having "intervened in the right way." He said the 2-year-old was bright red, nonresponsive and in "serious medical duress" on a day when temperatures rose above 80 degrees. "If they hadn't taken action, it could have been tragic," Constantino said. Luckily they knew that hauling kids in the back of a truck, without seatbelts, is highly illegal. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Carolyn Re: Newsletter Dear Webby, I am not receiving yours or the Angelwinks newsletter.

Daily tip from Woven Bacon Shell Breakfast Taco By attosa [382 Posts, 1,850 Comments] This low carb breakfast taco isn't only super delicious, it looks super cool! Weave the bacon, pop it in the oven, and fill with your favourite breakfast foods. This will be a hit for your family and friends. You can do the weaving straight on your baking sheet. I used a coloured silicone mat so you could see what I was doing more clearly and not get a reflection off the baking sheet's shine. Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes Yield: 1 huge taco to share Ingredients: 10 pieces raw bacon 1 raw egg 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese some chopped jalapeno Steps: Preheat oven to 425 F. Lay 5 strips of bacon across a baking sheet, making sure they are flush up against each other. The fatty sides should all face one direction and meaty sides should all face the other direction. Fold every other strip in half onto itself. Lay one strip of bacon perpendicular to those strips, flush up against the back of the folds. Unfold those flipped strips back over the perpendicular strip of bacon. Now fold every other strip in the alternating columns. Lay one strip of bacon perpendicular to those strips, flush up against the back of the folds. Unfold those strips back down over the perpendicular strip of bacon. Repeat again with the first set of strips. Do the same thing on the upper half of the weave. There should be the same number of strips going down as there are going across. Trim the edges of the woven bacon a bit to resemble a circle. Pop in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. When it's mostly cooked and holding its shape, remove from oven. Take two tin cans and lay metal tongs or a metal knife across the two to make a bridge. Lay the bacon disc over the bridge. Pop back in the oven for 10 minutes or so, until crisped. To make your quick scrambled eggs, crack your egg into a mug and whisk with a fork. Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Fill bacon shell with cheese, then egg, the more cheese. Sprinkle with jalapeno. Enjoy! Don't forget the Salsa! ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ A family had moved to Seattle from Texas, and each of them missed their old home. That December, when they went to pick up their first-grade son from school, his teacher told them about a conversation she overheard. One boy said, "We're Catholic, and we are going to Christmas Mass." "Were Jewish," said another child. "And we're going to have a Hanukkah celebration. "Madison chimed in, "We're Texans, and were going to have a barbecue." ___________________________________________________
Interesting body painting.
___________________________________________________ I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family there were no miracles left for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for the four-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience, and realize that Belker would go gently. The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's Family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, "I know why." Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. He said, "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?" Everyone shook their heads in agreement. The four-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."
