______________________________________________________ Do not do unto others as you would that they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same. --- George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950) ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A 60-year-old millionaire was getting married and threw a big wedding reception. The big day arrived, and he got married to his stunning 23-year-old bride in the vast garden of his 50,000-square-foot mansion. Champagne was flowing and an enormous team of waiters was flitting about serving the finest hors-d'oeuvres in the land. Naturally, the millionaire's less wealthy friends couldn't help but feel jealous. In a quiet moment, one of them asked him how he landed such a young beauty. "Simple", grinned the millionaire, "I faked my age." His friends were really amazed and asked him how old he told her he was. "87 !" he replied. ----------- I am not a millionaire, yet, but if she can fake "not too old", I can fake 87. Does that count? ______________________________________________________ Bubba went to a psychiatrist. "I've got problems. Everytime I go to bed I think there's somebody under it. I'm scared. I think I'm going crazy." "Just put yourself in my hands for one year," said the shrink. "Come talk to me three times a week, and we should be able to get rid of those fears." "How much do you charge?" "Eighty dollars per visit, replied the doctor." "I'll sleep on it," said Bubba. Six months later the doctor met Bubba on the street. "Why didn't you ever come to see about those fears you were having?" asked the psychiatrist. "Well, eighty bucks a visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money I went and bought me a new pickup!" "Is that so! And how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?" "He told me to cut the legs off the bed! Ain't nobody under there now!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Mt Mayon, Philipines _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Chris for this story: My son, Mitchell, a kindergartner, practices spelling with magnetic letters on the refrigerator: cat, dog, dad, and mom have been proudly displayed for all to see. One morning while getting ready for the day, Mitchell bounded into the room with his arms outstretched. In his hands were three magnetic letters: "G"-"O"-"D." "Look what I spelled, Mom!" Mitch exclaimed, a proud smile on his face. "That's wonderful!" I praised him. "Now go put them on the fridge so Dad can see when he gets home tonight." That Catholic education is certainly having an impact, I thought, happily. Just then, a little voice called from the kitchen. "Mom? How do you spell 'zilla?" _____________________________________________________ From Nancy: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Justin Llewelyn, 33, Salt Lake City, Utah Suspect in manhunt said he'd die before going back to jail, got rattled with PIT maneuvre Justin Llewelyn, the man who sparked a five-day manhunt after allegedly shooting a homeowner and firing at two police officers, told others he would rather be killed by officers than go to jail, police say. "(Llewelyn) told numerous people that he was not going to go to jail and he would do 'suicide by cop,'" a Salt Lake County Jail report states. Despite those menacing threats, Llewelyn was taken into custody Wednesday without any gunfire following a chase through Utah County. A deputy sustained minor injuries when he T-boned the pickup truck Llewelyn was driving. "My entire thought process was (to) get this guy stopped any way I can," Utah County sheriff's deputy Justin Mortensen said Thursday, adding he had been told the suspect was likely armed. Llewelyn, 33, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of three counts of attempted murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, possession of a firearm by a restricted person, failing to stop for police and theft by receiving stolen property. On Saturday morning, a Unified police officer attempted to stop and talk to Llewelyn about his possible involvement in car burglaries in the area, the report states. Llewelyn ran off. And while the officer was running after him, "the officer heard what he believed were gunshots" coming from Llewelyn. A short time later, a second officer confronted Llewelyn who "began firing a handgun in the officer's direction," the report states. Llewelyn again ran off, this time into the home of Steve Smith, police say. Smith said he found Llewelyn in his garage trying to steal his car. That's when Smith said Llewelyn fired multiple shots at him, striking the homeowner in the chest and side. Investigators launched a large manhunt for Llewelyn that lasted for five days. Between 3:30 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. Wednesday, the Violent Fugitive Apprehension Strike Force — a team consisting of U.S. marshals, Unified police and other local agencies — spotted Llewelyn sitting in a stolen pickup truck at Bicentennial Park, 1600 E. 1440 South, in Provo, said Unified Police Lt. Brian Lohrke. He called it good investigative work and not just coincidence that the strike force spotted Llewelyn in Utah County, but he declined to go into detail. "He's parked and stationary and the detectives are putting together a plan to take him into custody right there because he was still parked," Lohrke said. The strike force called the Utah County Sheriff's Office to have deputies get in position should the man flee, he said. While that was happening, Llewelyn started to drive away. When he got onto State Street, the strike force attempted to pull him over, Lohrke said. That's when Llewelyn fled. The ensuing 20-minute, 10-mile chase went south on U.S. 89 through Springville into Spanish Fork. In Spanish Fork, Llewelyn turned his truck around and started heading north on Main Street toward I-15, according to Lohrke. At that point, Mortensen sought to make a PIT manuever on the pickup truck, Lohrke said, intentionally bumping the fleeing vehicle in an attempt to get it to spin out. In this case, the vehicles crashed, causing heavy damage to both the police car and the truck. As soon as the truck came to a stop, a large number of officers with guns drawn swarmed on the vehicle. No other motorists were injured. "He pretty much gave up at that point. I think he was a little rattled. But detectives were on him pretty quick," Lohrke said. Llewelyn was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital before being booked into jail. Mortensen, who has worked in Utah County law enforcement for 20 years, said he "just happened to be in the right spot" Wednesday afternoon. Mortensen had a sore, bandaged wrist and cuts on his arms. He said his face felt sunburned from his air bag's deployment, but he suffered no broken bones and would do the same maneuver again today, if needed. Llewelyn surrendered, Lohrke said, despite telling others that he was willing to die at the hands of police, and despite officers spotting a handgun inside the truck. Usually, with a pit maneuvre the chaser gently nudges the fugitive's rear bumper and gets him to spin out and hit a tree or bushes. In this case, the chaser was not following the fugitive, but going in the opposite direction, at high speed. So he crossed over and T-boned the fugitive. The fugitive was "a bit rattled" and did not resist arrest after that. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Yuko Re: MalwareBytes Dear Webby, I love Malwarebytes, but yesterday's update seems to be buggy.

As a Delta Air Lines jet was flying over Arizona on a clear day, the copilot was providing his passengers with a running commentary about landmarks over the PA system. "Coming up on the right, you can see the Meteor Crater, which is a major tourist attraction in northern Arizona. It was formed when a lump of nickel and iron, estimated to be 150 feet in diameter and weighing 300,000 tons, struck the earth at about 40,000 miles an hour a few Million years ago, scattering white-hot debris for miles in every direction. The hole measures nearly a mile across and is 570 feet deep." From the cabin, a passenger was heard to exclaim, "Wow! It just missed the highway!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Create Your Ideal Budget Start by listing everything that you spend money on each month and how much you spend.

President Calvin Coolidge was notorious for his reluctance to talk. One Sunday he went to church by himself, and when he returned to the White House, his wife asked, "Was the sermon good?" "Yes," the President told her. "What was it about?" she asked. "Sin." "What did the minister say?" "Seems to be against it." ___________________________________________________
