_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Kati for this story: The Sunday School teacher was describing how Lot's wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt, when little Jason interrupted, "My Mummy looked back once, while she was driving," he announced triumphantly, "and she turned into a telephone pole!" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Essie Grundy, 43, Perris, California Walmart Locks High-Theft Items, Gets Slapped With Racism Lawsuit When Essie Grundy walked into the Walmart in the Riverside County, California, town of Perris, she had to get assistance to get a 49-cent comb out of a locked case. Now, she’s filing a lawsuit. Why, you may ask? Well, according to KCBS-TV, the comb is a product predominantly stolen by African-Americans — and according to Grundy, the chain was engaging in racial discrimination by putting the comb behind a locked case. “I originally got the product from the Walmart in Riverside … and it was such a good product, I wanted to introduce it to my older children,” Grundy said at a news conference Friday. “They didn’t have any more at the original Walmart that I got it from, so I went to my neighborhood one, and that’s when I noticed all of the African-American products was locked up under lock and key.” “We have different textured hair than other people,” she added. “I just feel that we should be treated equally,” noting that blacks shouldn’t be treated differently “just because of a complexion.” Walmart said they don't care about skin color, their computer just notices which items get stolen the most. If an item never gets stolen, then it won't be locked up. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Clyde Re: Folder tasks Dear Webby, I have had no trouble before trying to print pictures~~until today~~I click on start~~then My Pictures~~ when pictures appear, I select the one I want to print.

A couples happy married life almost went on the rocks because of the presence in the household of old Aunt Emma. For seventeen long years she lived with them, always crotchety, always demanding. Finally the old girl died. On the way back from the cemetery, the husband confessed to his wife, "Darling, if I didn't love you so much, I don't think I would have put up with having your Aunt Emma in the house all those years." His wife looked at him aghast. "My Aunt Emma!" she cried. "I thought she was YOUR Aunt Emma!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Discretionary Vs. Mandatory Spending When making a budget, be sure to identify Discretionary and Mandatory expenses. Mandatory expenses are things like health insurance and rent that you cannot afford to do without. Discretionary expenses are things that aren't crucial to you or your families existence like a NetFlix subscription or eating out. When times get rough financially or when you want to save money for something, you can start by eliminating discretionary expenses from your monthly budget.

Very commendable. What does she say?" The little boy replied, "Thank God he's in bed!"

PETA upset at Six Flags roach contest GURNEE, Ill. --People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants Six Flags Great America to scrap its Halloween-themed cockroach-eating promotion. A spokeswoman for the animal rights organization says the contest at the amusement park's FrightFest is "gratuitously cruel." The park in Gurnee, Ill., is joining other Six Flags parks in offering unlimited line-jumping privileges to anyone who eats a live Madagascar hissing cockroach. The bugs are up to three inches long. The contest begins next month. Amusement park officials are defending their menu choice. Great America spokesman Jim Taylor says the bugs are nutritious, high in protein and fat free. It is rumored that since the bugs routinely beat PETA officials in IQ tests, the bugs may contain intelligence boosting proteins. ___________________________________________________
