"No woman," said one man, scornfully, "can keep a secret." "I would dispute that," answered a woman guest. "I have kept my age a secret since I was twenty-one." "You'll let it out some day," the man insisted. "I hardly think so!" responded the lady. "When a woman has kept a secret for twenty-seven years, she can keep it forever." ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Melissa Natal, 35, Juan Flores, 25, Bryan Martinez, 24, Franklin, New Hampshire Violent home invasion by 3 armed crooks against paralyzed woman with kids. Being arrested is a crappy experience, but that’s not why a woman in New Hampshire asked for toilet paper before authorities snapped her booking photo. Melissa Natal was accused of masterminding a violent home invasion early Friday involving a paralyzed woman and children. Natal, 35, and her alleged accomplices, Juan Flores, 25; and Bryan Martinez, 24; were charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and burglary, according to WMUR-TV. Natal apparently found the police holding cell cold ? so much so that she wrapped herself in toilet paper for warmth, according to the Manchester Union-Leader. That led to a very sheety mug shot. Flores also found the holding cell chilly. He posed for his booking photo with his arms inside his shirt. Martinez didn’t do anything special to ward off the chill in the cooler. Police said the three suspects broke into the Franklin home of Lynn Hollins, who is paralyzed from the chest down, around 3 a.m. They were armed with a baseball bat and a gun, and were looking for money, according to the Concord Monitor. Martinez jumped onto Hollins and tried to duct-tape her mouth shut, authorities said. “He jumped over me, ripped my shirt off and ripped my pants right off and then got on top of me and just said, ‘Do you have any money?’ and tried to take my ring,” Hollins told WMUR-TV. “I wasn’t going to let it go. I was like, ‘No! Get off me!’” Hollins’ roommates heard the commotion and they tried to stop the attackers. One of the roommates was punched “about a dozen times in the back of the head,” according to court documents. Flores pointed a gun at three of Hollins’ four children, according to the Concord Monitor. Martinez grabbed money hidden in the home’s bar. The suspects piled into a vehicle and fled just as officers arrived, according to NH1.com. They were arrested a short time later. The trio were arraigned later Friday. Prosecutors alleged that Natal knew Hollins and persuaded her accomplices to commit the robbery, according to NH1.com. She has been arrested numerous times since 2001, according to jail records. Natal and Martinez were being held on $25,000 bail at the the Merrimack County Jail; Flores was held on $20,000 bail. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sylvie Re: Caps Lock Dear Webby, Dear Webby How can I permanently, once and for all, disable the CAPS LOCK key ? I am transcribing and just glance at the keyboard every second or third paragraph, and it's very annoying to find that I have to retype them. Thanks Sylvie Dear Sylvie I take a spoon or screwdriver and pry off the CAPS LOCK key and then glue it on a coin operated copy machine. It's no more useful there, except for causing a few laughs when somebody new asks about it. Have FUN! DearWebby

One of them asks the guard, "Can you tell me how old the dinosaur bones are?" The guard replies, "They are 3 million, four years, and six months old." "That's an awfully exact number," says the tourist. "How do you know their age so precisely?" The guard answers, "Well, the dinosaur bones were three million years old when I started working here, and that was four and a half years ago." ___________________________________________________
