How long should you keep a blacklist? 




Good Morning, ,
Today is Tuesday, December 26
Happy Boxing Day!

Thank You, Ian!
Thank you Nancy!

-28 and a brutal wind filled with drifting snow made my
walk so uncomfortable, that I shortened my route. It was
a reminder of Carl Sagans "Ice Age is Coming" rant from
the 70s, that got you feeling guilty about fun muscle cars.

So you got rid of powerful cars, and got Gullible Warming.
What now, is the cause of the current cold ripple? 

Have FUN!

He really wanted this bird, so he got caught up in the bidding. He kept on bidding, but kept getting outbid, so he bid higher and higher and higher. Finally, after he bid way more than he intended, he won the bid - the parrot was his at last! As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the auctioneer, "I sure hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have paid this much for it, only to find out that he can't talk!" "Don't worry," said the auctioneer, "He can talk. Who do you think kept bidding against you?" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Split Rock, Minnesota ____________________________________

A routine traffic stop in York County, Nebraska, on Tuesday turned out to be anything but routine. That’s because officers found 60 pounds of pot in the vehicle, which was occupied by an older couple traveling on Interstate 80, according to the York News-Times. Deputies in York County stopped a Toyota Tacoma after it crossed the center line and the driver failed to signal. Deputies said they immediately smelled what appeared to be raw marijuana. When drug-sniffing dogs confirmed their suspicion, officers searched the pickup and found the weed in boxes inside the pickup topper, the newspaper reported. York County sheriff’s Lt. Paul Vrbka told the paper he estimated the confiscated cannabis to be worth about $336,000. Patrick Jiron, 80, was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and having no drug tax stamp, both felonies. Jiron was released after he posted 10 percent of his $100,000 bond, according to the York News-Times. His wife, 70-year-old Barbara Jiron, was cited but not jailed due to what Vrbka described as ”some medical issues.” Vrbka said the couple told police they were traveling to Vermont from Clearlake Oaks, California, and intended to give out the weed as Christmas presents, according to WOWT.com. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Eliza Re: How long to keep blacklist? Dear Webby, You mentioned at one time how long to keep addresses in the Mailwasher blacklist. I am quite happy with MailWasher, but I noticed that the blacklist file is getting quite large, and sooner or later that must be putting a load on my machine. And how do you deal with spammers that keep changing their forged sending addresses? Eliza Dear Eliza MailWasher generally ignores the sender address, unless it is in the blacklist, since most spammers forge their sender address anyway. MailWasher checks the content of spam. Persistent spammers like the Bed & Bath crooks are best dealt with a filter. It takes 20 seconds to make a filter, and you never see mail from those crooks again. To keep the blacklist short and fast, I age it off in two days. By then the spammers usually change their address anyway. For those of you who haven't got MailWasher yet, click on the MailWasher button in the right side menu and get a free trial copy. DearWebby

A man is sitting down on a public toilet when suddenly, the guy in the stall next to him says: Hi, how are you? Um...fine, answers the man. What are you up to? asks the other guy. I?m traveling, the man says hesitantly. "Are you coming over soon?" "Excuse me?" Mind if I stop over?? What? ARE YOU CRAZY? Don?t even think of coming over here!" Hey, Ill call you back, says the other guy. The idiot in the next stall thinks I am talkin to him.

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife. A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.

Instead of storing it empty, fill it up with out of season clothing or extra blankets. Attach a tag that lists to contents on the handle so you can see what is in it at a glance. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ A motorist driving by a Texas ranch hit and killed a calf that was crossing the road. The driver went to the owner of the calf and explained what had happened. He then asked what the animal was worth. "Oh, about $200 today," said the rancher. "But in six years it would have been worth $900. So $900 is what I'm out." The motorist sat down and wrote out a check and handed it to the farmer. "Here," he said, "is a check for $900. It's postdated six years from now."

Six-year old Angie, and her four-year old brother, Joel, were sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang and talked out loud. Finally, his big sister had had enough. "You're not supposed to talk out loud in church." "Why? Who's going to stop me?" Joel asked. Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, "See those two big men in gangster suits standing by the door? They're hushers." ___________________________________________________
