For bathroom facilities, they had to use an outhouse. The little boy hated it because it was hot in the summer, cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy determined that one day he would push that outhouse into the water. One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the little boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek. So he got a large stick and pushed. Finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away. That evening his dad sternly told him to sit down. Knowing he was in trouble, the little boy asked why. The dad replied, "Someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today. It was you, wasn't it, son?" The boy answered yes. Then he thought a moment and said, "Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn't get into trouble because he told the truth." The dad replied, "Well, son, George Washington's father wasn't in that cherry tree!" ____________________________________________________ Jack was driving home after a hard days work, and he was not in a good mood. Nothing at the office had gone right, and so when he was about to make the turn off and a car came wildly careening around the corner in his lane, he was furious! To make matters worse, the lady driving the car, a former neighbor whom he knew well, stuck her head out the window and screamed, "PIG! PIG!" Jack couldn't contain himself any longer. He rolled down his window, stuck his head out, and shouted, "OLD BATTLE AXE!" Still fuming, he drove around the corner . . . and ran into a pig, standing in the middle of the road. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ While looking for a nice picture I cam across this one from 2008. Had to laugh about the description I had given it: The view from my desk showed a smokey sunset again last night. Those forest fires just south of the border have been putting more greenhouse gases and hot air into the atmosphere every day, than all the politicians of the world combined can do in a year. If those fires are not extinguished soon, then all the global warming and ice age fear mongering theories will have to be reversed AGAIN. Those theory reversals just make the ecologists sound like McCain or Kerry. Amusing, but not very credible. ____________________________________

Emanjula Daracus Brown was with his wife and three children at the Burger King in Lawrenceville waiting for food, according to the report. Employees told police that Brown and his wife, who was not arrested, became “irate” and began throwing drinks at the employees while waiting for their order. Brown also pulled a gun out and pointed it at the employees, they told police. Brown and his family had left the restaurant by the time officers arrived, but an officer soon pulled Brown’s car over, the report said. Brown told the officer that he was being “respectful and polite” at the Burger King, where he was in a long line of people waiting for food. Brown said he saw a manager on her phone, not helping prepare food, and asked her to get off her phone and assist in completing the orders. The manager “responded very rudely and began to get in his face,” Brown told police. Brown said he continued to be polite, but the manager threw a cup of liquid at him. Brown then threw a cup of liquid at the manager and demanded a refund, he told police. The manager then threw a cup of coffee at Brown and threatened to throw hot oil at him, Brown told police. Brown’s wife got a gun from their car, but Brown took it from her and put it in his back pocket, he told police. While Brown was stopped and interviewed by a police officer, another officer reviewed surveillance footage and interviewed the manager that Brown said threw beverages at him. Brown was arrested, and the manager was not. Brown has been charged with simple battery, battery, aggravated assault, criminal trespass damage, possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a felony, misdemeanor third-degree child cruelty and felony third- degree child cruelty. More charges may be added. Bullshitting the police is frowned upon. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Tiny Re: Headset Dear Webby, I'm interested in getting a mic. for my computer. Preferably one with a headset. Could you reccomend a good one with little or no feedback and distortion? Thanks in advance! Tiny Dear Tiny Modern headsets don't have feedback or distortion problems. As long as you avoid the single ear types, just about any headset will be fine. Cup types are more comfortable than ON-Ear, and those are more comfortable than IN-Ear. With Cup and ON-Ear the leather (or fake leather) cushion types are more comfortable and usually have better acoustics than the bare foam cushion types, but are also more expensive. Unless you have "tall hair", traditional over-the-head hoops are more comfortable than behind-the-head horizontal hoops. If you browse to http://dalco.com and type headset into the search field, you will see about 10 headsets ranging from $6 to just over $20. They even have a wireless headset for under $10. If you want top quality sound, try their Cyber Accoustics Pro, but if you are just going to use it for hands free phone calls via Skype, the $6 headset is quite good enough. Skype is quite good at filtering out non-essential backgrounds. Have FUN! DearWebby

One day the baker decided to weigh the butter to see if he was getting a pound and he found that he was not. This angered him and he took the farmer to court. The judge asked the farmer if he was using any measure. The farmer replied, your Honor, I am primitive. I don't have a proper measure, but I do have a scale." The judge asked, "Then how do you weigh the butter?" The farmer replied "Your Honor, long before the baker started buying butter from me, I have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Every day when the baker brings the bread, I put it on the scale and give him the same weight in butter. If anyone is to be blamed, it is the baker."
