______________________________________________________ Reported by Moe An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Sean Harris, 33, Laporte, Indiana Man robbed gas station; caught after he ran out of gas While making his getaway, a man suspected in robbing a LaCrosse gas station got caught after he ran out of gas. He also was allegedly intoxicated, according to LaPorte County Sheriff's police. Sean Harris, 33, is being held in jail without bail. He was arraigned Friday in LaPorte Circuit Court on a felony robbery charge. Police allege that late Wednesday morning the South Bend area man implied to a store clerk at the BP gas station in Lacrosse that he had a gun. He fled the store southbound on U.S 421 with an undisclosed amount of food and beverage items along with cigarettes. No money was taken and no weapon was displayed, said LaPorte County Police chief deputy Ron Heeg. He said Harris was eastbound on Ind. 8 in Starke County when an Indiana State Police trooper, attempting to the locate the getaway vehicle, found it stopped along the two-lane highway. A Starke County sheriff's deputy came along and assisted with the arrest, police said. Heeg said the suspect ran out of fuel and allegedly had a blood alcohol level higher than the limit for legally operating a motor vehicle. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Wes Re: Sorting by size Dear Webby, I used to be able to look at a directory of all my files on Windows to see if there were any big files that I could delete, but am unable to locate a way to do that now. Any answers, oh wise one??? wes Dear Wes In the Windows File Explorer top is a rectangular icon with a few dots in it. Pull that one down and select DETAILS Now you see the column with file size.

A salesman, tired of his job, gave it up to become a policeman. Several months later, a friend asked him how he liked his new role. "Well," he replied, "the pay is good and the hours aren't bad, but what I like best is that the customer is always wrong."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keep Spaghetti from Boiling Over Add a teaspoon of olive oil to your spaghetti water to prevent it from boiling over. Butter or another vegetable oil can be substituted for olive oil. A pat of butter also works well to prevent rice from boiling over. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com There is no need for long boiling! Save your money! Bring water, a titch of salt and a pat of butter to a boil, add the pasta slowly so as not to kill the boil, wait until you have a really rolling boil, cover it and turn the burner off. Cover the pot with a tea cozy or towel and let it sit until the pasta is tender, usually about 20 minutes. If the pasta is not served immediately, then before straining it through a colander, add half a cup of cold water and give it a quick stir. That way it does not glue to a lump, stays flexible and can be reheated when needed. DearWebby ____________________________________________________
If you're going 80 miles per hour, how long will it take you to go 80 miles?
____________________________________________________ Time to run this one again: JESUS AND SATAN ON THE COMPUTER Jesus and Satan were having an ongoing argument about who was better on his computer. They had been going at it for days, and God was tired of hearing all the bickering. Finally, God said, "Cool it. I am going to set up a test which will take two hours and I will judge who does the better job." So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away. They moused. They did spreadsheets. They wrote reports. They sent faxes. They sent e-mail. They sent out e-mail with attachments. They downloaded. They did some genealogy reports. They made cards. They did every known job. But, ten minutes before the time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, the rain poured and, of course, the electricity went off. Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known. Jesus just sighed. The electricity finally flickered back on, and each of them restarted computers. Satan started searching frantically screaming, "It's gone! It's all gone! I lost everything when the power went out!" Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all his files from the past 2 hours. Satan observed this and became even more irate. "Wait! He cheated! How did he do it?" God shrugged and said, "Jesus saves!" ---------------- The above is NOT a theological item, it's a pun intended to get you to hit CTRL S now and then. __________________________________________________

Seated at the bar is an elderly looking lady, (mid eighties). The gentleman walks over, sits along side of her, orders a drink, takes a sip, turns to her and says, "So tell me, do I come here often?"
