At confession one day, a football player told the priest that he had acted in an unsportsman-like manner at a recent football game. "I lost my temper and said some bad words to one of my opponents." "Ahhh, that's a terrible thing for a Notre Dame lad to be doin'," the priest said. He took a piece of chalk and drew a mark across the sleeve of his coat. "That's not all, Father. I got mad and punched one of my opponents." "Saints preserve us!" the priest said, making another chalk mark. "There's more. As I got out of a pileup, I kicked two of the other team's players in the in a sensitive area." "Oh, goodness me!" the priest wailed, making two more chalk marks on his sleeve. "Who in the world were we playin' when you did these awful things?" "Southern Methodist." "Ah, well," said the priest, wiping his sleeve, "boys will be boys." ____________________________________________________ >From Myrna While working in a clothing store, I noticed that people had no shame about returning items that obviously had been worn. One rainy morning I walked in and found a discolored blazer hanging on the rack with other returns. "People return the most filthy, nasty things," I commented to my supervisor who was standing nearby. Eyebrow raised, she said, "That's my jacket." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Blue Dart Frog, poisonous. _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A big hulking hooligan walks into a bar, slams his fist down, and yells, "Give me a Budweiser, or . . . !" Scared, the bartender serves the man his Budweiser. This happens everyday for a week straight, and the bartender turns into a nervous wreck. He asks his wife for advice, and she tells him he should stand up for himself. "Easier said than done," the bartender thinks, but he decides to try it anyway. The next day, he asks the barmaid to stand in for him. The hooligan returns, slams his fist down and yells, "Give me a Budweiser, or . . . !" "ORR WHAT?" she roars at him. "A small coke, please." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Arfhy Santos, 20 William Lopez, 24, Bronx, New York City, New York Suspect charged with attempted murder in Times Square traffic stop that injured cop Authorities believe 20-year-old Arfhy Santos was driving the vehicle that struck the officer while fleeing the scene, and that 24-year-old William Lopez was the passenger. Both are from the Bronx. Santos is charged with attempted murder, assault and reckless endangerment, while Lopez is charged with reckless endangerment and reckless driving. The suspects were taken into custody Wednesday, just hours after police publicly identified them and released their photos. "We had over 20 tips on this in a very short time," NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said. "People were concerned." Lopez is reportedly the owner of the Mercedes and has at least three prior arrest. Santos has eight prior arrests, some of which are sealed because he was a juvenile. They were arrested on 144th Street between Eighth and Ninth avenues in Harlem. Police said they were in an apartment and tried to escape out a window. And this isn't the first time the suspects have pulled off a stunt like this. In 2016, police say Santos did a copycat move, nearly hitting officers and running a dozen red lights in Washington Heights. And just a day before the Times Square incident, police say Lopez fled a traffic stop in the same Mercedes, taking off on the sidewalk and nearly hitting officers and people. Additionally, they say officer discovered Lopez had souped up his car with a device that covered his back license plate during a traffic stop in June. "You hold down your brake and gas pedal and hit the gear as hard as you can," Boyce said. "It slows your brakes and you skid down the street. Idiots do it." The Times Square incident, which was caught on video, happened in the heart of the Crossroads of the World around 11:45 p.m. Saturday. Authorities say the officer approached a vehicle that was driving recklessly near 234 West 42nd Street, but the driver fled the scene after initially stopping. The black four-door sedan fled westbound on 42nd Street, towards Eighth Avenue, clipping the officer. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries to his legs and back. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Mark Re: Transfer data from old to new machine Dear Webby, My wife will soon be taking possession of a new PC with Windows10. Can you recommend a product or method to transfer her files & settings from her old PC which is running Windows8. I understand I need to manually install the application software that she needs. Thanks for a great e-zine - it's an awesome start to the day. Regards Mark Dear Mark You obviously don't read the ads, that I put here for your convenience. Since the 80s LapLink has been THE program for doing that. Once upon a time LapLink sent a bunch of 360 KB 5 1/4" floppies and a blue serial port cable. Later they had a yellow printer port cable for even faster transfers. I still have those! Nowadays it is done wirelessly or via USB cable like between your camera and the computer. It is still done with a program from Laplink, called PC Mover. PC Mover even re-installs all your programs. LapLink is the ONLY mover recommended by Microsoft and by Intel. It even has a total back-up component. Good Deal! Laplink has never malfunctioned for me, and I have used it since the 80's. Have FUN! DearWebby

Automatically move ALL your settings and programs. No need to re-install them. The only mover recommended by Intel and Microsoft. A little girl became restless as the preacher's sermon dragged on and on. Finally, she leaned over to her mother and in her piercingly loud voice said, "Mommy, if we give him the money now, can we go?"

A man is driving home late one afternoon, and he is driving well above the speed limit. He notices a police car with its red lights on in his rear view mirror. He thinks "I can outrun this guy," so he floors it and the race is on. The cars are racing down the highway -- 60, 70, 80, 90 miles per hour. Finally, as his speedometer passes 100, the guy figures "what the heck," and gives up. He pulls over to the curb. The police officer gets out of his cruiser and approaches the car. He leans down and says, "Listen mister, I've had a really lousy day, and I just want to go home. Give me a good excuse and I'll let you go." The man thought for a moment and said... "Three weeks ago, my wife ran off with a police officer. When I saw your cruiser in my rear view mirror, I thought that *YOU* were the officer and that you were trying to make her go back to me." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cream Cheese Sweetheart Cake By katrine2706 [164 Posts, 54 Comments] Today I decided to make one with an additional ingredient - cream cheese. I have always loved to make cheesecake but this one is a combination of both cheesecake and my favorite sweetheart snack. Ingredients: cake 1 cup flour 1/2 cup cream cheese 1/2 cup natural brown sugar* 1 Tbsp baking powder 1/4 cup grated cheese (cheddar or another mild cheese) 1 cup milk 1/4 cup soft butter glaze 3 Tbsp powdered sugar 3 Tbsp evaporated milk 1/2 tsp lemon extract Cream Cheese Sweetheart Cake - Ingredients *The sugar shown is natural granulated sugar, often called "raw". You substitute either white or brown sugar. I use natural sugar because it has a mild sweetness compared to white. Steps: Mix flour, sugar and baking powder. Set aside. In another bowl mix soft butter and cream cheese. Whisk until creamy. Gradually add in the milk. Continue stirring to properly incorporate the milk with the creamy mixture. Gradually pour milk mixture over dry ingredients to avoid lumps. Mix well until well combined. Stir in some grated cheese. Line pan with a greased foil. This is necessary to easily pull the cake out of the pan when it's cooked. Pour mixture in the pan. Sprinkle with grated cheese and bake at 180C for 40 minutes. Take it out of the oven and chill. Meanwhile, mix powdered sugar, evaporated milk and lemon extract. Stir until sugar melts completely. Get the cake and pour glaze over it. Sprinkle with the remaining grated cheese. Chill for 30 minutes. Cut into blocks and enjoy. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked. "Sure," said the young student confidently. "Means carrying a child."
