Rio Carnival 

Good Morning, ,
Today is Friday, February 16
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

From Cesar:

Carnival in Rio

You have NEVER seen anything like that!
Makes New Orleans Mardi Gras look like a brief fart in the dark by
They have quarter mile long floats, many hundreds of beautiful dancers
dressed in jewels, jet size animated eagles and dragons, Greek
mythical figures like Neptune rising on a water jet, and so on.

The US float, just for an example has Lincoln reciting his 4 score
speech, the revolutionary war with a few dozen canons, and so on.
It will totally blow your mind.

Dont look at it when you are in a hurry! The whole parade is about an
hour long.

Thanks, Cesar!!!!!!

Have FUN!

He looked at her for a while, and then said, “You’re A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K.” She asked, “What does that mean?” He said, “Amazing, Bright, Cute, Delightful, Elegant, Fantastic, Gorgeous, Hot.” She felt very happy and said, “Oh my dear, that’s so lovely. What about I, J, K?” He said, “I’m Just Kidding!” "GONG" said the cast iron frying pan. ______________________________________________________ A Chinese guy goes into a Jewish-owned establishment to buy black bras, size 38. The Jewish store keeper, known for his skills as a businessman, says that black bras are rare and that he is finding it very difficult to buy them from his suppliers. Therefore he has to charge $50.00 for them. The Chinese guy buys 25 pairs. He returns a few days later and this time orders fifty. The Jewish owner tells him that they have become even harder to get and charges him $60.00 each. The Chinese guy returns a month later and buys the store's remaining stock of 50, and this time for $75.00 each. The Jewish owner is somewhat puzzled by the large demand for black size 38 bras and asks the Chinese guy; "Please tell me - What do you do with all these black bras?" The Chinese guy answers: "I cut them in half and sell them as skull caps to Jewish men for $200.00 each." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Intimidator 305, 90 miles per hour, Kings Dominion Park, Virginia _____________________________________________________

Willard Hartman faces 11 charges: Possession of narcotic drugs Possession of a firearm on the grounds of a school (five counts) Carrying a concealed weapon (five counts) Benjamin Krohn faces 14 charges: Possession of narcotic drugs Carrying a concealed weapon Possession of a firearm on the grounds of a school (five counts) Carrying a concealed weapon (five counts) Possession of THC Possession of drug paraphernalia According to that letter, Mequon police pulled over the men's vehicle in the Homestead High School parking lot after an officer spotted the vehicle making an illegal U-turn on Mequon Rd. The men said they were in Mequon "because they had a friend on the Sturgeon Bay basketball team participating in a basketball tournament being held at the high school." Superintendent Joynt said in his letter to parents: "While it is unsettling to know that strangers were on our campus over the weekend with guns, they were not targeting anyone here or targeting our school." Hartman was driving, prosecutors say, and Krohn was the front-seat passenger. Hartman told investigators they were at Homestead watching a basketball game "and he did not see the no U-turn sign." While investigating, an officer noted a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle and Krohn "stated he had marijuana," according to the complaint. Krohn was searched and a baggie with a small amount of a green, leafy substance believed to be marijuana was found in his jacket pocket, along with brass knuckles, which Krohn said he "uses for protection." The complaint says "an unlocked Taurus handgun" was found on the floorboard behind the driver's seat, and inside the case, an officer found "a Taurus 1911 45 ACP and a magazine with six rounds of .45 caliber ammunition." In the trunk, officers found an AK-47 rifle and a magazine, both empty, an AM-15 rifle with the chamber empty but a 30- round magazine inserted. Additionally, a Glock was found on the front passenger floorboard with a loaded magazine but no rounds in the chamber, and a Kel Tec Sub 2000 was found folded with a magazine next to it in a backpack on the rear passenger floorboard. Prosecutors say investigators found a pill later identified as oxycodone in a baggie inside a duffel bag and four cigar wrappers -- one with the tobacco removed and no paper. They also found a green, leafy substance in the backpack which tested positive for THC. The complaint says Krohn said they'd gone to Homestead to see a friend play basketball and he admitted to smoking marijuana in the parking lot. He said the firearms belonged to him and he "brought them with in case he wanted to trade or sell them to someone." Hartman and Krohn made their initial appearances in court on Feb. 12. Cash bond was set at $5,000. A status hearing was set for March 6. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lee Re: Links not working Dear Webby, When someone sends me an e-mail with a link,and I click on the link nothing happins.I am a novis on computers.

A man answered his doorbell and greeted a friend who walked in followed by a very large dog. The dog immediately jumped up on the sofa with his muddy feet and proceeded to knock over a lamp and chew on the cushions. The outraged householder began to scold his friend, "Don't you think you should train your dog a little better?" "My dog?" exclaimed the friend, "I thought it was your dog!"

Bob has been playing golf for years, and he has the finest equipment, but his technique has never improved a bit. As his friend watched, he teed up at the first hole and promptly drove a brand-new ball into the woods. On the second hole, he drove another new ball into a lake. On the third, he lost a new ball in another part of the woods. "Why don't you use an old ball?" his friend asked. Bob replied: "Where do you buy old balls?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Felt Fortune Cookies By attosa [526 Posts, 2,812 Comments] The best part of opening a fortune cookie is receiving your paper fortune, so these felt versions can save you from ingesting too many cookies! They can be reused, too, so this is a great craft for Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, and many other celebrations. Total Time: 45 minutes Yield: 5 fortune cookies Supplies: pieces of felt ring of masking tape pencil scissors pipe cleaners hot glue gun plain white paper pen Steps: Place the ring of masking tape on top of a piece of felt. Trace around the ring with a pencil. Cut out the circle of felt. Repeat with other pieces of felt. Lay a piece of pipe cleaner over the circle and cut it so it's just a bit shorter than the diameter of the circle. Fold the circle in half to make an indentation at the halfway point. Unfold and use the indentation as a guide to lay down a thin line of hot glue all the way across. Lay a piece of pipe cleaner on top of the hot glue. Press down to secure. Repeat with all the circles. While the glue dries, cut out little strips of white paper shorter than the diameter of the felt circles. Handwrite your messages onto the strips of paper. To shape the circle into a fortune cookie, first fold it in half. Angle the two sides toward each other, bending the wire at its halfway point. Flip over to see the puffier side. Gently peel back one flap of the cookie and insert a fortune. Close back up. They are ready to go!

Then, just past a traffic light, the lanes shifted, and he was straddling the dotted line dividing them. "Get into your own lane!" I yelled urgently. He looked at me in bewilderment.
