After several minutes of animated conversation, the first one remarks, "Hey, you know, we've got a serious problem at our church that I want to discuss with you guys." The other two pastors nod and he goes on, "Well, it's bats. We can't seem to get these bats out of our attic. The singing and organ playing wake them up, and they start flapping around. Then when I start to preach, we can still hear them moving around up there and it's really hard for anyone to pay any attention. The kids start to cry and, well, it's starting to really get in the way of a good church service." The second pastor says "Well that's interesting, because we've had the same problem, they won't stay out of our belfry. We've tried ringing the bells at all hours, spraying chemicals, we've even had a couple of exterminator companies out. Nothing's worked yet." He throws up his hands in exasperation and shakes his head. The third pastor smiles and nods his head knowingly. "Well, gentlemen. We had that problem a few years ago, and we found a quick solution." he says. The other two pastors look up with hope on their faces, and he goes on, "It was easy. We got up there, got to know 'em a little bit. Pretty soon we had them come on down, got 'em baptized, made them part of the congregation and asked for donations. Haven't seen 'em since." ______________________________________________________ A tiny but dignified old lady was among a group looking at an art exhibition in a newly opened gallery. Suddenly one contemporary painting caught her eye. "What on earth," she inquired of the artist standing nearby, "would that supposed to be if it had turned out?" He smiled condescendingly. "That, my dear lady, is supposed to be a mother and her child." "Keep trying," snapped the little old lady, "you are not even close yet!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Newport, Rhode Island _____________________________________________________

"Where do you live?" asked the operator. Bubba replied, "At the end of Eucalyptus Drive." The operator asked, "Can you spell that for me?" There was a long pause and finally Bubba said, "How 'bout if I drag her over to Oak Street and you pick her up there?" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Carema Lashandra Brown, 29 Brookville, Pennsylvania Inmate’s Weave Hid Coke, Meth, 78 Doses Of LSD Drug stash was discovered after jailers removed woman's fake hair A Pennsylvania inmate had 78 doses of LSD, cocaine, methamphetamine, and a glass pipe stashed under her hair weave, contraband the woman apparently smuggled into the lockup following a prior arrest, according to court records. Carema Lashandra Brown, 29, was booked into the Jefferson County jail on January 5 after she was charged with two felony theft counts. Unable to post $60,000 bail, Brown was detained at the jail in Brookville, a borough about 80 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. Within a week of Brown’s arrival, jail personnel began investigating the distribution of narcotics inside the facility. During questioning, two female inmates--whose recorded phone calls indicated they had been using LSD--confessed that they obtained the acid from Brown. One of the inmates provided agents with a note allegedly written to them by Brown. “You bitches sound bored! Get on my level! LOL,” the note read. “Please conduct yourselves in a discreet way. Just say I love you when you figure out what I’m talking about.” Armed with a warrant, investigators subsequently searched Brown, who was “trembling” as agents perused her hair. However, “Following the search of the hair no items were recovered,” a probable cause affidavit reports. However, the following day jail staffers removed Brown’s weave and discovered that she had narcotics hidden under her fake hair. A criminal complaint notes that investigators seized eight ounces of cocaine, eight ounces of meth, 78 doses of acid, and a glass pipe with burn marks. The drug discovery resulted in the filing of 18 narcotics counts (nine felonies, nine misdemeanors) against Brown, who is seen above. Her bail was set at $100,000. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Randy Re: Using a TV as a second monitor Dear Webby, I need you expertise again if i may call on you again. I bought a new tower last fall, and for Christmas i received my first smart TV. Now the question is on the back of my computer there is only one port for a HDMI cable to go. is there a adapter that i can plug my TV and my monitor into so i can use both and leave the cable hooked up?????? I think i already know the answer but want to hear from you before i keep searching...thanks for the great epaper..... Thanks again Randy Hi Randy Usually you can plug the TV into the HDMI socket, and the computer monitor into the traditional Video socket, pretty well the same as when you add a second monitor. The problem is pixel density. If your TV is small, the size of your regular computer monitor, it's not too bad, but if you have one of those 54" or 60" TV screens, your text and pictures are going to look crappy, because the same number of pixels are going to be stretched over 60 inches, instead of 21. TV does not fill in and fade between pixels. It relies on being faster than the eye and fooling you. If you want to use a TV as a second computer monitor, don't put it onto your desk, but put it onto the wall six feet away from your couch or your treadmill. Using a TV as a second monitor, so that you can use wider spreadsheets, is a pain in the nuisance because of the different pixels per inch. However, if you use one for writing, and the other for look-up, it apparently works OK. So does, apparently, working on the computer monitor and watching hockey or Netflix on the TV. Electrically it works, just keep the different pixels per inch in mind. Have FUN! DearWebby

Ten Step Guide To Being Handy Around The House 1. If you can't find a screwdriver, use a knife. If you break off the tip, it's an improved screwdriver. 2. Try to work alone. An audience is rarely any help. 3. Above all, if what you've done is stupid, but it works, then it isn't stupid. 4. Work in the kitchen whenever you can ... many fine tools are there, its warm and dry, and you are close to the refrigerator. Harleys, on the other hand, are easier to work with on the coffee table in the living room. Since it probably will never run again anyway, at least it will make a nice conversation piece. 5. If it's electronic, get a new one ... or consult a twelve-year-old. 6. Stay simple minded: Get a new battery; replace the bulb or fuse; see if the tank is empty; try turning the switch "on" ; or just paint over it. 7. Always take credit for miracles. If you dropped the alarm clock while taking it apart and it suddenly starts working, you have healed it. 8. Regardless of what people say, kicking, pounding, and throwing sometimes DOES help. 9. If something looks level, it is level. 10. If at first you don't succeed, redefine success.

Two men went bear hunting. While one stayed in the cabin, the other went out looking for a bear. He soon found a huge bear, shot at it but only wounded it. The enraged bear charged toward him, he dropped his rifle and started running for the cabin as fast as he could. He ran pretty fast but the bear was just a little faster and gained on him with every step. Just as he reached the open cabin door, he tripped and fell flat. Too close behind to stop, the bear tripped over him and went rolling into the cabin. The man jumped up, closed the cabin door and yelled to his friend inside, "You skin this one while I go and get another one!" ---------------- Actually, that's from Charlie Chaplin's "GoldRush", the only movie about Canada that I had seen before immigrating in 1970. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Pinch Dead Blooms Pinch off dead blooms from flowering plants.

Tip provided by ____________________________________________________ A rancher gives his new bride last-minute instructions before heading to town for supplies, saying, "A vet will be along this afternoon to inseminate one of the cows. I've hung a spike by the right stall so's you know which one I want him to impregnate." The wife, who's from back East and dumber'n a cedar stump, thinks this is odd, but nods that she'll do it, and the husband leaves for town. The vet arrives later, and the wife leads him out to the barn and the stall with the nail. "This is the cow right here," she tells him. "What's the spike for?" the vet asks. "Dunno. I suppose it's for hanging up your pants."
