As they were cruising along they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red but they just went on through. The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself, "I must be losing it, I could have sworn we just went through a red light." After a few more minutes they came to another intersection and the light was again red, and again they went right through. This time the woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous and decided to pay very close attention at the next intersection to see what was going on. At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was definitely red and they went right through. At this point she turned to her friend and said, "Mildred! Do you know we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could get killed us!" Mildred turned to her and said, "Holy Moly! Am I driving?" _____________________________________________________ The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions. But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened; everything was lost. He was stunned with grief and anger. "God, how could you do this to me!" he cried. Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. "How did you know I was here?" asked the weary man of his rescuers. "We saw your smoke signal," they replied. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Mom had been teaching her 3-year-old daughter to recite the Lord's Prayer. The youngster dutifully repeated it after her mother at bed time for several nights. One night, the girl insisted she was ready to pray "solo," so her mother listened with pride as she carefully enunciated every word. The mother was a bit exasperated and knew they needed to work on it some more as her daughter ended the prayer: "And lead us not into temptation," the youngster prayed, "but deliver us some email. Amen." ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Keira Keeley, 35, New York, New York Amateur Actress arrested for trying to push random woman off subway platform A 35-year-old actress who has starred in off-Broadway shows and played bit parts on TV allegedly tried to push a fellow straphanger into the path of a subway train at Union Square over the weekend, law enforcement sources told The Post. Keira Keeley’s random target was 57-year-old Leonore Gonzalez of the Bronx, who was waiting on the 4, 5 and 6 train platform. Keeley allegedly walked up and shoved her from behind at 12:15 a.m. Saturday. Gonzalez grabbed a pillar and narrowly avoided falling from the platform onto the tracks, police sources said. A cop heard screaming on the platform, and was told by a witness that Keeley intentionally pushed her victim toward the tracks as a train was pulling in, according to the sources. Gonzalez explained to cops that she didn’t see Keeley move toward her, but felt a push and quickly grabbed a pillar so she wouldn’t fall in front of the northbound train, according to sources. She suffered a bruise on her right elbow and wrist, as well as back pain after the push, sources said. The actress was arrested at the station, and initially claimed she’d simply bumped into Gonzalez, with whom she’d had no prior interaction — and even tried to grab her before she fell. Keeley later told police she’d been out boozing with her boyfriend, Jeff, at the 12th Street Ale House in the East Village, where she threw back four glasses of wine before heading home to the Bronx, according to sources. She admitted feeling “wiggly” and buzzed while waiting in the subway station, but denied pushing Gonzalez, sources said. Keeley, who has no prior arrests, was charged with attempted assault with intent to injure with a weapon. Her bail was set at $7,500, which she posted Monday, records show. Police sources said the incident was not caught on camera, but cops were planning to interview the train operator. Keeley has performed in off-Broadway productions according to her website. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Helen Re: What mail to use for travelling Dear Webby, What kind of mail program is best for travelling? I heard that some hotels won't let you use POP mail? Is that true? Dear Helen That depends entirely on your choice of hotels. Most hotels block the regular email port, (25), but you can sneak around that and get out via port 587 or 465. You can usually get out OK with web mail. If you don't have a domain and webmail, get a Gmail account. Very few hotels block Gmail. Have FUN! DearWebby

A drunk is attracted by the food and stumbles along a baptismal service on Sunday afternoon down by the river. He proceeds to walk into the water and stand next to the preacher. The minister notices the old drunk and says, "Mister, are you ready to find Jesus?" The drunk looks back and says, "Yes, preacher, I sure am." The minister dunks the fellow under the water and pulls him right back up. "Have you found Jesus?" the preacher asks. "Nooo, I didn't!" said the drunk. The preacher then dunks him under for quite a bit longer, brings him up, and says, "Now, brother, have you found Jesus?" "Noooo, I have not, reverend." The preacher, in disgust, holds the man under for at least 30 seconds this time, brings him out of the water, and says in a harsh tone, "My God, man, have you found Jesus yet?" The old drunk wipes his eyes and says to the preacher, "Are you sure this is where he fell in?"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Upcycled Light Bulb Terrarium This is a fun way to use a burnt out incandescent bulb that would otherwise be thrown out. Approximate Time: 30 minutes Supplies: 1 hollowed out incandescent bulb moss, dirt, pebbles, or any fun findings from outside a pencil or other long, narrow tool a screw string or thread Instructions: Start with an incandescent light bulb that has been previously hollowed out. There are some excellent tutorials online showing how to do this. Take the screw and start twisting it into the threads on one side of the bulb's aluminum cap to make a small hole. Twist it back out and make another hole across from the first on the opposite side. Fill the bulb carefully with your pebbles, then your dirt, and finally your moss and treasures. Use the pencil to move and push things so they are arranged to your liking. Using the holes you made in the cap of the bulb, thread your string through and tie it into a knot. By Shawna G. from Ann Arbor, MI Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com She didn't list where you can learn how to hollow out a lightbulb, so I looked it up on Google. Here is one site that shows you how to do it: How to hollow out a lightbulb Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

The spiritualist went into a trance state, then replied, "He says he'd love a package of cigarettes." "I'll send a carton immediately." the woman said joyfully. "But did he say where I should send them ?" "No." replied the Seer somberly. "But he didn't ask for matches."
