Look at the papers: this car is designed to carry 5 persons." "You can't pull that one on me," replies the French customs agent. "Quattro means 4!" "Oh, you are so stupid! Call your supervisor over!"

Jenev Varghese, 32, of Luton, was sentenced to 12 years behind bars at Luton Crown Court yesterday. He was found guilty of two counts of sexually assaulting a child under the age of 13. During the trial the jury heard how Varghese sexually assaulted the young girl on a number of occasions. He threatened to murder her loved ones if she spoke out and told anybody. Detective Constable Samantha Shane, of the Bedfordshire Police Public Protection Unit, said: ‘Varghese took advantage and abused his incredibly young victim in the worst way possible. ‘It is impossible to comprehend the abuse that this child suffered, but I hope that her and her family are now able to move on from this awful experience. ‘I’m really pleased with the severe sentence. ‘I hope it sends a stark warning to others who think they can abuse children and get away with it.’ Judge Lynn Tayton QC handed Varghese a 12 year sentence with a one year extension. He was also placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register indefinitely and handed a Sexual Harm Prevention Order. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Alex Re: Tripod Bolt Dear Webby, I lent out my tripod and it came back with the bolt, that holds the camera, missing. My Camera is a Canon Powershot. What kind of bolt is required to hold it? Alex Dear Alex 99.9% of all cameras take a standard 1/4" x 20 (1/4" coarse) bolt. With some searching hardware stores you should be able to find a wing-bolt. If not, simply glue a wing-nut onto the bolt head with 2-hour epoxy. You may have to shorten the bolt, or use washers. Dont drive it into the camera too deep or too hard. The socket on the camera is just very soft aluminum. Have FUN! DearWebby

"Son, it just wouldn't be right," his father says. "That's okay," the little fellow says. "You could at least give it a try, couldn't you?"

Thanks to Sandie for this story: A little boy got on the bus, sat next to a man reading a book, and noticed the man had his collar on backwards. The little boy asked why he wore his collar that way. The man, who was a priest, said, "I am a Father." The little boy replied, "My Daddy doesn't wear his collar like that." The priest looked up from his book and answered, "I am the Father of many." The boy said, "My Dad has 4 boys, 4 girls, and two grandchildren, and he doesn't wear his collar that way." The priest, getting a little impatient, said, "I am the Father of hundreds," and went back to reading his book. The little boy sat quietly thinking for a while, then leaned over and said, "Maybe you should wear your pants backwards instead of your collar?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Getting Used To Wearing Dentures By Kim Churchman Sorry you have to go through this. You can do it, you will come out the other side a success. Practice the sounds 55, 33 and 66. Keep going back to your dentist for adjustments, ten times if necessary. You need to be able to wrap your lips around them without ever getting a sore. I am a dental hygienist and was a longtime assistant to a doc who made dentures. Twice we failed, and one was someone who could not stop gagging. He went for hypnosis and had to face an unpleasant suppressed memory to get it stopped. The other was someone whose jaw did not hold the plate, so it fell off when he opened his mouth. Implants helped him. If worst comes to worst, you can get the denture anchored with implants, and they make mini ones that are far cheaper. My patients who have implants say that they are awesome, they really rave about how great they feel and chew. Implants are not for smokers because they don't anchor well. God bless you. Dentures are famous for making strong men cry. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com That myth about smokers is total BS, typical for non-smokers badmouthing smokers. I used to be a heavy smoker and never had a problem with dentures. Billions of smokers wear dentures without a problem. I realize smoking is a real nuisance and severely annoys some people, including me now, but it has absolutely no effect on dentures. The secret is to wait half a year after you get your teeth pulled, before you get your dentures made. It helps, of couse, if you have a competent denturist! Then get one of those "Postal Pencils", the purple copper permanaganate indelible pencils, that have a paper ribbon wound around the core instead of wood. Yeah, I know, they are getting hard to find, and you might have to use a substitute if you are not successful in finding one. Use that very soft pencil and touch it to any sore spot. Dont do that until your gums are properly healed and hardened for half a year! Then put the dentures in briefly. The purple will transfer and show you where you have a high spot. Scrape that high spot gently with a sharp screwdriver or key file. Dont get carried away! Just scrape until the purple is gone, then test the denture. You will soon have perfectly fitting and painless dentures. I am still and always will be grateful to the old denturist in Kittimat, BC, who taught me that trick in 1972. Eventually, as you age and shrink, you will have to reline the dentures. That is a topic for another daay, if anybody is interested. Have FUN!

Roy D. Mercer-How Big a Ol' Boy are Ya-#4-Pharmicist
The Dilemma Which would you choose? You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop and you see three people waiting for the bus: 1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die. 2. An old friend who once saved your life. 3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about. Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car? Think before you continue reading. This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first. Or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again. The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams." Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought limitations. ___________________________________________________
