She was going to a fancy dinner party that night and figured she would need at least two handkerchiefs to get her through the evening. She didn't have any pockets, so she stuffed them both in her bra. Halfway through the night, she had already used up one handkerchief and was rummaging around in her bra for the other one. She was having trouble finding it, and soon she noticed that everyone at the table was looking at her. "What on earth are you doing?" asked one of her colleagues. She replied, "I could have sworn I had two when I arrived!" _____________________________________________________ Thanks to Sandie for this story: Grandma Doesn't Know Everything Little Tony was staying with his grandmother for a few days. He'd been playing outside with the other kids for a while when he came into the house and asked her, "Grandma, what is that called when 2 people are sleeping in the same room and one is on top of the other?" She was a little taken aback, but decided to tell him the truth. "It's called sexual intercourse, darling." Little Tony just said, "Oh, OK" and went back outside to talk and play with the other kids. A few minutes later he came back in and said angrily, "Grandma, it is not called sexual intercourse! It's called Bunk Beds! And Jimmy's Mom wants to talk to you"!! _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A couple was having some trouble, so they did the right thing and went to a marriage counselor. After a few visits and a lot of questioning and listening, I told them that I had discovered the main problem. I stood up, went over to the woman, asked her to stand, and gave her a hug, and a squeeze on each side. I looked at the man and said, "This is what your wife needs, at least once a day!" The man frowned, thought for a moment, then said, "OK, what time do you want me to bring her in for her treatment every day?" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Sinead Connett, 29, Grimsby, UK UK woman jailed for concealing death of her newborn son years earlier Plumbers called to a UK home that had been having toilet trouble found a terrible reason for the issues: the body of a newborn boy. Sinead Connett, now 29, was recently sentenced to 12 months in prison following the plumber's discovery last year. She told cops she was "shocked" when she found out she was pregnant and scared her partner would ditch her; she confessed to giving birth alone in her apartment bathroom in August 2013, per the Telegraph. (She says the baby was stillborn, but claims she tried to revive him; the BBC reports a cause of death was never determined.) The former HR executive later dumped the baby's body, wrapped in a towel and plastic bags, in a drainage pit behind her parents' home two and a half hours away, knowing they were on a trip at the time. She had left the body in the trunk of her car for at least two days before dumping it, per the Grimsby Telegraph. In February 2016, Connett's father called a plumber about issues he and his wife were having with their downstairs toilet. The plumber believed the problem was a blockage in an outside drain; while attempting to clear it, the two men found the body. The court heard how the baby's body was found in a "seriously decomposed" state and with a fractured skull. A cause of death was not ascertained, however, and a post mortem exam could not identify when exactly the death occurred. Neither Mr or Mrs Connett could explain why the body was there, and told officers how they had no known grandchildren, the court was told. Investigators identified no suspects initially, but took DNA samples from Sinead, Ann and Stuart Connett, which conclusively revealed the 28-year-old as the baby's maternal mother. Connett was ultimately convicted of concealing the birth of a child. She told cops she didn't realize she was pregnant until it was too late to terminate, but medical records show her pregnancy was recorded in January 2013. She visited an abortion clinic in May but was told it was too late to get an abortion then. The baby was conceived with partner Jonathan Layfield, a teacher who got banned from teaching in 2014 due to an inappropriate relationship with a teen student. Despite all of these issues, the couple wed in November 2016. Connett was charged in May 2017 after all her stories about the baby were found to be lies. There was no proof that she personally had bashed in the baby`s head, and since everything she said was lies, she was not charged with murder. Considering how many people are on waiting lists for adopting babies, and have been for many years, she should have gotten a much stiffer sentence. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dave Re: USB drive jumpers Dear Webby, Congratulations and thanks for a most useful newsletter. I recently purchased a HD enclosure kit and am having problems making it work, Should the hard drive jumpers be set to slave? By the way I phoned the companies tech help line. They weren't. Dave Dear Dave Sorry that your email almost slipped by me! Yes, the jumper on the portable USB drive needs to be set to the "SLAVE" position. That way it will accept any stationary C: drive as it's master, and it will act as a secondary drive to both your desktop and laptop. Some newer drives will detect that on their own, but if you see jumpers, set them to slave. Have FUN! DearWebby

The warden, addressing the three instigators of a failed prison riot, said, "I would like to know two things. First: Why did you revolt? Second: How did you get out of your cell?" One of the three men stepped forward, "Warden, we rebelled because the food is awful." "I see. And what did you use to break the bars?" The warden asked. Replied the spokesman, "French Toast..."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Labels the Thrifty Way By anip [2 Posts, 1 Comment] This tip has always worked for me. The easiest way to remove labels and sticker residue from glass jars is as follows: Peel the label. (Soaking in hot water helps.) Rub any sticky areas with peanut butter. Rinse and enjoy, knowing that no chemicals were needed! Not only did you avoid spending money on some sort of cleaner, you also got to play with your food! Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com I put jars into the sink first and remove last. Often that releases labels and lets them float off. If they don`t, I half fill them with hot water, and put them into the microwave for a few minutes. Often the label falls off, if not you can pull them off with flat, wide, tweezers. Have FUN!

____________________________________________________ One summer, a drought threatened the crop in a small town. On a hot and dry Sunday, the village parson told his congregation, "There isn't anything that will save us except to pray for rain. Go home, pray, believe, and come back next Sunday ready to thank God for sending rain." The people did as they were told and returned to church the following Sunday. But as soon as the parson saw them, he was furious. "We can't worship today. You do not yet believe," he said. "But," they protested, "we prayed, and we do believe." "Believe?" he screamed. "Then where are your umbrellas?" __________________________________________________

A traveling salesman went into a restaurant for breakfast one morning. When the waitress took his order he said he wanted his eggs hard and burned around the edges, his bacon was to be burnt crisp and he wanted his toast blackened and hard. The waitress was surprised but soon returned with his order as he requested. She then asked if was there anything else she could do for him. He says, "Yes, sit down across from me, frazzle your hair and start complaining. I'm home-sick!" ____________________________________________________ From Catherine You're still funny after all these years - and informative, intelligent, just plain useful! Thank you!
