He was out fishing on a lake in a small boat and not having much luck. He noticed a man in another small boat that was close by, open his tackle box and take out a mirror. Being curious the man rowed over and enquired, "What is the mirror for?" "That's my secret way to catch fish," replied the other man. "I Shine the mirror on the top of the water. The fish notice the spot of sun on the water above and they swim up to the surface. Then I just reach down, net them and pull them into the boat." "Wow! Does that really work?" exclaimed the guy from Chicago "You bet it does." was the response. "Would you be interested in selling that mirror? I'll give you $50 for it." offered the big city gent. "Well, okay." said the country guy. After the money was transferred, the city fisherman asked, "By the way, how many did you catch this week?" The country local, grinned and said, "You're the sixth." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Quoddy lighthouse in Lubec Maine _____________________________________________________

"Did you wipe your feet on the mat as you came in?" "Oh, yes, sir." responded the young man. "And another thing the number one thing we are very keen on is truthfulness. There is no mat." said the boss. _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joshua L Franklin, 19, East Alton, Illinois Young mum lost ears, fingers and part of her face when neighbour set her on fire. Arsonist got 19 years. A young woman who tried to help her neighbour almost died when she was doused with fuel and set on fire. Kirsten Ashby, 27, saw there was some kind of problem between her neighbour and his girlfriend, and went to try and help. But Raymond Bowen threw petrol over her, then flicked a lighter to set her on fire while he stood smoking a cigarette. She was left with no finger tips, no ears, layers of her skin on her face burned away, and her shoulder-length dark hair burned away. Bowen was jailed for 19 years today for attempted murder after the attack 23 weeks ago. Kristen has been in hospital since the attack, and her parents have spoken out to try and raise money for her treatment and adaptations to help her when she leaves hospital. Her parents, Lynn and Paul, have taken care of Kirsten’s daughter Maddison, nine, since the attack and visited her in hospital as she has undergone a staggering 80 operations to start rebuilding her face and body. Her parents said today that they were told to expect the worst as she was not expected to survive the horrific ordeal. They described her as a ‘stubborn soul’ and her recovery, much of which had been in isolation due to the risk of contracting an infection, was a slow and painful process. In the first month after the incident Kirsten was placed in a medically induced coma so her body could deal with the shock and pain caused by the extensive burns.

Married for a night A man and a woman, who had never met before, but were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping compartment on a transcontinental train. Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper bunk and she in the lower. At 1:00 AM, the man leaned over and gently woke the woman saying, "Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold." "I have a better idea," she replied. "Just for tonight, let's pretend that we're married." "Wow! That's a great idea!" he exclaimed." "Good," she replied. "Get your own damn blanket!" After a moment of silence, he farted, long and loud. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cheesy Salsa Chicken By l_rambou [20 Posts, 10 Comments] Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 25-35 minutes Total Time: 40-50 minutes Yield: 2 Ingredients: 2 large skinless boneless chicken breasts 2-4 tsp taco seasoning 1 cup salsa 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese Cheesy Salsa Chicken ingredients Steps: Preheat oven in 375 F.
