Good Morning, ,
Today is Wednesday, March 7

I am sorry about the late delivery of the Humor Letter yesterday. I
had it written and tried to send it, but some mysterious server
problem blocked it. I hacked around on it till mid day until Victor in Ukraine fixed it.

I sure am going to sleep well tonight!

Have FUN!

"This young man agreed to marry my daughter," said one. "No! He agreed to marry MY daughter," said the other. And so they haggled before the King, until he called for silence. "Bring me my biggest sword," said Solomon, "and I shall hew the young man in half. Each of you shall receive a half." "Sounds good to me," said the first lady. But the other woman said, "Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let the other woman's daughter marry him." The wise king did not hesitate a moment. "The young man must marry the first lady's daughter," he proclaimed. "But she was willing to hew him in two!" exclaimed the king's court. "Indeed," said wise King Solomon. "That shows she is the TRUE mother-in-law." ______________________________________________________ The plane was loaded with people when it made a refueling stop. They were told they would be on the ground for 1 hour and they could leave the plane while they refueled. They all got off except for a blind man and his dog. The pilot went to the back of the plane and saw the blind man. He had known him from his travels before. He approached the man and said, "Keith, would you like to leave the plane and stretch your legs?" "No, thank you," the man said, "but my dog would." A few minutes later, the pilot was seen passing through the gate with dark sunglasses and the dog. Most passengers changed their flight. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Your Ex? _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ When Rabbi Ovall picked up the phone, Special Agent Struzik from the IRS was on the line. "Hello, Rabbi Ovall?" "Yes, this is he." "I'm calling to inquire about a member of your congregation, a Dr. Finegold. Do you recognize the name?" "Yes, he is a member. How can I be of service?" "Well, on last year's tax return, the doctor claimed that he made a sizable tax-deductible contribution to your synagogue. Is that true?" "Well, I'll have to have my bookkeeper verify this information for you. How much did Dr. Finegold say he contributed?" "Twenty five thousand dollars," answered Agent Struzik. "Can you tell me if that's true?" There was a long pause. "I'll tell you what," replied Rabbi Ovall, "Call back tomorrow. By then it will be true." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Colton J. Lynch, 24, of Denver, Jeffrey R. Garrett, 19, of Adamstown, and a 15 year old girl Two men, teen-age girl arrested for conspiring to rob, assault victim Two men and a juvenile girl are accused of conspiring to rob a victim, Ephrata, PA police say. A month-long investigation led police to charge Jeffrey R. Garrett, 19, of Adamstown, Colton J. Lynch, 24, of Denver, and a 15-year-old juvenile girl with Robbery, Conspiracy to Commit Robbery and Aggravated Assault in connection to a suspected crime that occurred on Jan. 23. According to police, Garrett and Lynch asked the girl to find a victim they could assault and rob. The girl allegedly led a victim to a pre- arranged location, a parking garage in the 100 block of East Locust Street. There, Lynch and Garrett assaulted and robbed the victim, police say, cutting him on the elbow with a knife and stealing his wallet and its contents. Garrett is currently incarcerated in Lancaster County Prison after failing to post $50,000 bail. The juvenile’s charges were referred to Lancaster County Juvenile Probation. Lynch is still at large, police say. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Richard Re: Better PDF viewer Dear Webby, I appreciate what help you are giving. I think there is a problem with my registry. I cant use Adobe reader now because it wants me to use the latest version and now I cant install that. Do you know of any other PDF viewers. I seem to remember something in a distant path of my mind. .... lol Eventually Im going to do a re-instal. For now I'll limp by until I get up the nerve. Thanks Richard in Edmonton Dear Richard Just go to my toolbox at http://webby.com/tools and look for the PDF readers. There is a link there to Foxit. It is smaller and faster than Adobe, and works just fine, even with ClickBook. I haven't used Adobe in years. And it's free. Especially when you are doing research and have 4-5 e-boooks open, Foxit handles that easily, without overloading your computer even while printing one with Clickbook, while reading others. I print all ebooks in paperback book size booklets, 4 pages per sheet, with ClickBook. Saves a lot of paper and ink. That's the same as a 75% discount on all ink and all paper! Also, the paperback size format, printed front and back, makes them a lot more useful than loose, full size sheets. Right now ClickBook is on special at Clickbook (40% off regular price). Highly recommended! Foxit is a READER. If you want to re ad and EDIT PDF files, for example Government forms, then I recommend Nitro. Don't ask me why the Government puts their forms in PDF format. Maybe they get kickbacks from Microsoft and Adobe? You can get the Nitro reader at GoNitro I have used Nitro for half a dozen years. You can fill out all the silly forms, and even paste a scanned signature. Then email or fax it to them. They never know that you did not waste paper and toner or ink on their form. You can also clip pictures from eBooks or any PDF files with nitro. Quite often the picture of the day is a picture I harvested with Nitro. Like Clickbook, Nitro is one of the essentials in any decent tool box. Have FUN! DearWebby

Two kids are talking to each other. One says, "I'm really worried. My dad works twelve hours a day to give me a nice home and good food. My mom spends the whole day cleaning and cooking for me. I'm worried sick!" The other kid says, "What have you got to worry about? Sounds to me like you've got it made!" The first kid says, "Yeah, but what if they try to escape?"

Three old men are at the doctor for a memory test. The doctor says to the first old man, "What is three times three?" "274," was his reply. The doctor says to the second man, "It's your turn. What is three times three?" "Tuesday," replies the second man. The doctor says to the third man, "Okay, your turn. What's three times three?" "Nine," says the third man. "That's great!" says the doctor. "How did you get that?" "Simple," says the third man. "I subtracted 274 from Tuesday." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thread Wall Organizer Keep spools of thread out of the way but in plain view by making this easy wall organizer. Cut a piece of plywood to the desired size and attach wall hangers on the top of it. Then cover the plywood with 1 1/2 inch headless nails (finishing nails work great). Position the nails at an angle so the thread spools don't slide off. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com I once made pegboards like that for my girlfriend, who did a lot of embroidery. For the wood I used regular "holy" panel like you see in hardware stores. The holes were an exact match for 3/16" dowels, just perfect for holding the little styrofoam spools she used for winding the yarns onto after untangling the skeins. I cut those pegboards to fit into an attache style hard briefcase and painted them with thick and smooth high gloss marine paint. Each of those panels held a "pallette" of colors, for example one was pastels, one was bright Brazilian embroidery rayon yarns, and so on. I made it so that four pallets just snugly fit into the case. With the cover closed, the yarns were protected from dust and smoke. Easy to make and might make a nice Christmas gift. Have FUN!

Thanks to Dianne for this story: We got lucky when we heard the old Piedmont Hotel in Atlanta was getting a face-lift and its beautiful maple doors became available for sale as salvage items. We bought several and had them installed in our 19th-century home. Showing a friend around the house, I pointed out, "You know, these doors are from the Piedmont Hotel." He raised an eyebrow. "Most people just take the towels." ___________________________________________________
