About an hour later he gets a call from the same guy, sounding even drunker. "What time does the bar open?" He asks. "Same time as before... Noon," Replies the clerk. Another hour passes and he calls again, plastered. "Whatjoo shay the bar opins at?" The clerk then answers, "It opens at noon, but if you can't wait, I can have room service send something up to you." "No... I don't wanna git in...

Tyler Anthony Espinosa, 18, faces two charges of felony robbery after he brandished a box cutter at employees of both the Golden Corral and Barnes and Noble and demanded money. The first robbery was reported at about 3:10 p.m., according to a press release from Billings Police Department Sgt. Scott Conrad. Espinosa entered the Golden Corral, showed the box cutter and demanded money, according to police. After the employee gave him money, Espinosa left and went to the Barnes and Noble across the parking lot. At about 3:13 p.m., police received a report that a man had entered the Barnes and Noble, displayed a box cutter and demanded money. A cashier gave him all the money in the till. Police, already responding to the reported robbery at Golden Corral, arrested Espinosa in the area of 24th Street West and Monad Road shortly after he left Barnes and Noble, according to the press release. The press release credits BPD Officer Tina Hoeger with Espinosa's arrest. Hoeger was in her patrol car when she saw Espinosa fleeing after the second robbery. The box cutter blade was extended during the robberies, Conrad said. Espinosa was arrested without incident, according to the release. Tech Support Pits From: Bonnie Re: Desktop Background
Dear Webby I have a question that you may be able to help with (or not). I find tons of photos all over the internet that I love to use for our desktop background, changing it often. Most of the time they work; other times, they come out in repeat squares of the photo all over the screen rather than one very nice photo. I’ve attached 2 of those that do this; would you open them, then try to choose as background and see what happens. If you get repeats all over too, is there any chance you can tell me why? I know that with my luck, they’ll work fine for you! If that’s the case, then I give up and will just hang on to the ones I find that work and say c’est la vie. I look forward to hearing from you whenever you have time to play around. Thanks a bunch and also many thanks always for my DearWebby letter; I love them! Bonnie Dear Bonnie Those pictures are too small to look nice when stretched to the entire desktop. For best results, resize pictures to whatever you have set for your screen resolution. If you have your resolution set to 1600 x 1200, then a 400 x 300 picture would have to be stretched 4 times, and probably would look very coarse and VERY ugly. Sometimes you can shuffle the size up in increments. Double the size, do an edge-preserving-smoothing, sharpen a bit, then increase the size again, and so on. It doesn't work with all pictures, but some may be worth trying. Usually, it is best to just use large pictures. On the better sites, you can click through the pictures to get a larger version.

Sven was out shopping in the mall when he met his friend Ole outside the jewelers. Ole noticed that Sven had a small gift-wrapped box in his hand. "So vat have you just purchased Sven?" Ole asks. "Vell, now that you've asked," replies Sven, "it's my Lena's birthday tomorrow and I asked her this morning vat she vanted for her birthday she said, 'Oh, I don't know, dear, yust give me something with a lot of diamonds in it.'" "So vat did you get her?" Ole asks. Sven replied, smiling, "I bought her a deck of cards." -------------- Keep in mind that the smart Swedes emigrated to Minnasohta and Mexifornia. The rest of them are still in Sweden, ordering their under-age daughters to NOT report rapes by Muslim immigrants, so as not to make Sweden appear "racist".

Once upon a time, a woman had a wonderful, faithful cat. One day, a man ran over the cat accidentally with his car. So, the man went to the old woman and said, "I'm terribly sorry about your cat. I'd like to replace him." "That so nice of you!", said the old woman, deeply touched. "How good are you at catching mice?"

A husband said to his wife, "No, I don't hate your relatives. In fact, I like your mother-in-law better than I like mine." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Easy Egg Salad for Sandwiches By Verity Pink [45 Posts, 19 Comments] Next time you are cooking scrambled eggs, cook a double quantity and leave half to cool. These can then be mashed with your preferred mayonnaise and freshly ground black pepper to taste. It saves all the palaver of shelling boiled eggs, and is easier to mix into the bargain. I normally scramble my eggs with salted butter - if you prefer to use only skimmed milk, you may wish to add salt. If I am not planning to use the sandwich filling immediately, I will usually store in the fridge for up to three days, covered with cling film. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ From another reader who wants to NOT have her name mentioned: Hi Webby How are you and yours? I loved the 'story' about the "George and Dragon", still laughing because I know which "George and Dragon" pub that is in England it's in West Wycombe Buckinghamshire, and yes George probably would have been the 'best bet' I'm sending the story on to some friends who 'frepuent' that particular pub, they'll laugh too.

___________________________________________________ Thanks to Cookie for this story: My two brothers arrived at boot camp together. On the first morning, their unit was dragged out of bed by a drill sergeant and made to assemble outside. "My name's Sergeant Jackson," he snarled. "Is there anyone here who thinks he can whip me?" My six-foot-three, 280-pound, brother raised his hand and said, "Yes sir, I do." The Sergeant replied with a snarl, "I had my eye on you and I was hoping you would say that." The sergeant grabbed him by the arm and led him out in front of the entire group. "Men," he said, "this is my new assistant. Now is there anyone here who thinks he can whip both of us?" ___________________________________________________
