According WTVR, Cindy and Jimmy Lee, owners of River City Recovery, are mourning the sudden and senseless death of their beloved employee, Allan Humphries. The 42-year-old man was murdered Thursday morning, shot in the back of the head while trying to repossess a car, according to Petersburg Police. The police officer had answered Allan`s phone, said Cindy. His best friend had called him to check on him and he hadn't answered the phone. Twenty-year-old Anton Robinson has been charged with first- degree murder in connection to the shooting. The Lees said Humphries never saw it coming. It wasn`t an altercation, because if there was an altercation, he would have left, said Jimmy. We`re all trained the same way. No vehicle is worth your life." The couple said that Humphries leaves behind a mother, brother, son, and young granddaughter. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Marcy Re: Deleting individual cookies Good morning Webby I really like the picture of the 2 kids and the bird and would like to use it as a screen saver but I'm not sure how to do it. Could you tell me how to do it? I read your news letter the first thing every morning. peddlerfrank Dear Frank Make a new, easy to find, folder, name it Keepers Save the big version of the pictue to that folder. You can save all kinds of "keepers" to that folder. Open the Control Panel. Double-click on the display icon. Click the screen saver tab. Select Slideshow In there you can select the location of the files you want, your Keepers folder, and the delay and the duration of each picture. It is a good idea to make a subdirectory or two inside that Keepers directory. Make one for "Staging" (getting ready for Fathers Day) and one for "Bored", where you park the Christmas pictures, that you are bored with for now. Next December you can drag them upstairs to the Keepers directory, that the slide show looks for, and drag the Halloween pictures down to "Bored". You can have one or thousands of files in the Keepers folder. Set the delay to at least 30 seconds, so that the screen saver does not come on every time you stop to sneeze. Have FUN! DearWebby

A tenant in an apartment house phoned the police that there was a fight going on in the apartment right over him. So when the policeman arrived at the upstairs apartment, he heard furniture being thrown around and signs of a good old family brawl. He rapped on the door with his night stick and the door was opened by a very determined and disheveled woman. "Who's head of the family here?" "You just wait a minute and I'll tell you. That's what we're trying to settle inside.

Our parish priest was making his visits to several homes in the neighborhood. He knocked on one door, and a little 4-year-old boy opened it. When he saw the priest, he called to his dad, "Hey, Dad! That guy that works for God is here!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Put a Pan Under Sink When Making Repairs If you change the faucet or drain in your kitchen or bathroom sink, put a shallow pan under the sink to catch any drips. Keep the pan there for 4 weeks to make sure water isn't accumulating. Check it periodically and tighten fixtures if necessary. Tip provided by ____________________________________________________ A college professor asked his class a question. "If Philadelphia is 100 miles from New York and Chicago is 1000 miles from Philadelphia and Los Angles is 2000 miles from Chicago, how old am I?" One student in the back of the class raised his hand and when called upon said "Professor you're 44.." The Professor said "You're absolutely correct, but tell me, how did you arrive at the answer so quickly?" The student said. "You see professor, I have a brother; he's 22, and he's half nuts."

One night, at the lodge of a hunting club, two new members were being introduced to other members and shown around. The man leading them around said, "See that old man asleep in the chair by the fireplace? He is our oldest member and can tell you some hunting stories you'll never forget." They awakened the old man and asked him to tell them a story. "Well, I remember back in 1944, we went on a lion hunting expedition in Africa. We were on foot and hunted for three days without seeing a thing. On the fourth day, I was so tired I had to rest my feet. I found a fallen tree, so I laid my gun down, propped my head on the tree, and fell asleep. I don't know how long I was asleep when I was awakened by a noise in the bushes. I was reaching for my gun when the biggest damn lion I'd ever seen jumped out of the bushes at me like this: RRROOAARRR!!! ...........I tell you, I just messed my pants." The young men looked astonished and one of them said, "I don't blame you, I would have messed my pants too if a lion jumped out at me." The old man shook his head and said, "No, no... not back then, just now, when I said RRROOAAARRR!!!" ___________________________________________________
