I gently tucked the tag in place and rumpled his hair. "Yeah," he said smiling slyly.

_____________________________________________________ Robert and Peter had applied for jobs at a large company and had to take an intelligence test. Though both of them found the test a breeze, except that they admitted to being momentarily stumped by the final question: "Name a 14 letter word for someone in charge of a plant." "How did you answer that last one?" asked Robert. "I thought it was tough at first.... then I thought of Superintendent." "I think I got it right too," Pete said. "But I wrote down Horticulturist." _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Stanley Skupien, 38, London, England London Marathon scammer who stole race number, in jail now. Stanley Skupien claimed another man’s medal after running the final two miles of London Marathon Stanley Skupien, 38, who sleeps rough at Heathrow Airport, told the Sun that crossing the finish line was a ‘dream come true’. Runner Jake Halliday lost his race number after he hit 24 miles, and despite only have a few more miles to go he was unable to finish without it. Jake, 28, from Edinburgh, was disqualified after raising £48,000 for blood cancer charity Bloodwise. Stanley told the publication: ‘I saw the number face-up in the middle of the road. I knew if I had one I would get a medal – my heart leaped, it was a dream come true. I had no thoughts of the person whose number it was.’ He said he was in tears when a woman put the medal around his neck and told min ‘well done.’ Stanley added: ‘It was my biggest moment ever.’ A Facebook post by Peter Mowbray caught the ‘cheat’ after spotting the official finish line photos of Stanley wearing Jake’s number. He wrote: ‘I couldn’t believe this so we went on the Virgin London Marathon website and you can clearly see Jake’s number and you can clearly see the pictures of Jake are completely different to the guy with his number at the end. ‘To see this man smiling and postulating with someone else’s medal made me personally very very angry. I felt very sick at first.’ Stanley, a Polish-born builder, said he ‘feels bad for Jake’. He was arrested at Heathrow on Tuesday on an unrelated theft charge. A London Marathon spokesman said: ‘We are aware a man was arrested at Heathrow. We are now awaiting further information.’
Tech Support Pits From: Renate Re: Bulk delete Gmails Dear Webby, My Gmail is close to locking up. I am at 99%. Gmail doesn't have any function to delete entire years. They say it would lock up their servers. I am sure you have a trick to go around that! What do I do? Renate Dear Renate There IS a way around their restrictions, but it is not easy. First, make some hot keys in Gmail. Go into settings, Keyboard shortcuts and make ` a shortcut for Select All on the page Yes `, the key to the left of the 1 Then make the 1 the shortcut for "Delete Selected". Those 2 will be your power tools. Then set the number of mails per page to 100. You can't go higher, somebody is worried you would lock up their servers. Now dump the TRASH and the SPAM folder. You are never going to look at them anyway. OK, now paste this into the search line on top: before:2016/01/01 (You can, of course, use any date as the deadline) Next hover over the "1-100 of many" button and select "Oldest" You may have to play with that a bit. Now you see the mail that is from before 2016. 100 of them anyway. If the mails that show are not from before 2016, then you missed a step. Once you see the mails from before 2016, hit your left power tool. ` 100 mails are selected. Now hit the second power tool: "1" Those selected mails are gone. It will take a while, when you have nearly 15 GB of mail, but it will work. Now just toggle between ` and 1 Each time you hit ` a hundred mails are selected, and when you hit 1, those are dumped. This finger exercise is perfect for when you are on the phone, or if your cyber lover is a slow typist. After each session, dump the trash. Your finger exercises just re- assign the location of the mails from INBOX to TRASH. They are still there, just their cap has been turned backwards. Dumping the trash gets rid of them. You will soon have plenty of elbow room in your Gmail. Have FUN DearWebby Thanks to Ross for this story: Two Jewish men, Sid and Al, were sitting in a Mexican restaurant. Sid asked Al, "Are there any people of our faith born and raised in Mexico?" Al replied, "I don't know, let's ask our waiter." When the waiter came by, Al asked him, "Are there any Mexican Jews?" and the waiter said, "I don't know Senor, I'll ask the cooks." He returned from the kitchen in a few minutes and said "No sir, no Mexican Jews." Al wasn't really satisfied with that and asked, "Are you absolutely sure?" The waiter, realizing he was dealing with "Gringos" gave the expected answer, "I will check again, Senor!" and went back into the kitchen. While the waiter was away, Sid said, "I find it hard to believe that there are no Jews in Mexico. Our people are scattered everywhere." The waiter returned and said "Senor, the head cook said there is no Mexican Jews." "Are you certain?" Al asked once again. "I can't believe there are no Mexican Jews!" "Senor, I ask EVERYONE," replied the exasperated waiter, "All we have is Orange Jews, Prune Jews, Tomato Jews, and Grape Jews."

A young man who wants to see the world signs on to a tramp steamer to be trained as a helmsman. He masters the classroom instruction, then starts his practical training on the wheel of the vessel. In his first lesson, the mate gives him a heading, and the young fellow holds to it. Then the mate orders, "Come starboard." Pleased at knowing immediately which way starboard is, the young man leaves the helm and walks over to his instructor. The mate has an incredulous look on his face as the helm swings freely. Then, rather gently considering the circum- stance, he asks politely, "Could you bring the ship with you?"

Maxine, the platinum blonde, reported for her final examination which consisted of Yes / No answers. She took her seat in the examination hall, stared at the question paper, and then in a bit of inspiration, took a quarter out of her purse. She started tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet "Yes" for heads and "N" for tails. Within 30 minutes she was all done whereas the rest of the class was still sweating it out. During the last few minutes of the exam period, Maxine frantically started flipping the coin again. The moderator, concerned about what she was doing, stopped by her desk and asked if she was ok. "Oh yes, I'm fine. I finished the exam a half hour ago--but," explaining the frantic coin tossing, "I'm going back through and checking my answers!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Online Resources For Driving Directions If you have an appointment somewhere that you haven't been before, use a free online website like http://mapquest.com or http://maps.google.com to get driving directions. You can enter your starting location, your destination and get step by step directions, including a map. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com NEVER check for shortest distance! Always check for shortest time. A shortest distance route will often zigzag you trough a busy downtown with thousands of stop signs and traffic lights and you could waste a day getting through Phoenix, Az, for example. The fastest route will be a few miles more, but without a single stop sign. Also check the highway reports for the area and then take a zoomed out overview and apply common sense. You may decide to add a midway point to drag the route away from an area with lots of construction. Half an hour on the net can save you a lot of aggravation and gas and time. Once I have my route nailed down, I usually print it with ClickBook in 4 page per sheet paperback book size. Especially on a long trip, a neat little booklet is a lot easier to use than a stack of full size loose sheets. By the way, you don't need a special printer for that. Any printer will do. All you need is the ClickBook program. Highly recommended! I also use it to print out e-books in paperback size front and back printed. Saves a lot on paper and ink and makes nice, compact booklets. ____________________________________________________ >From Rosie My kindergarten-aged daughter suddenly announced just before school that she needed to take a clean tee shirt to class. She told us the teacher was going to iron an anti-drug message on it. My wife frantically swept through my daughter's room, finding nothing usable but one tee shirt that already had something printed on one side. She sent it off to school with my daughter. That afternoon, my daughter returned and happily showed off her shirt. On one side it said, "Families are Forever." And on the other, "Be Smart, Don't Start."
Concrete patch gone wrong.
___________________________________________________ Arthur was sitting outside his local pub one day, enjoying a quiet pint and generally feeling good about himself, when a nun suddenly appears at his table and starts decrying the evils of drink. "You should be ashamed of yourself young man! Drinking is a Sin! Alcohol is the blood of the devil!" Now Arthur gets pretty annoyed about this, and goes on the offensive. "How do *you* know, Sister?" "My Mother Superior told me so" "But have you ever had a drink yourself? How can you be sure that what you are saying is right?" "Don't be ridiculous - of course I have never taken alcohol myself" "Then let me buy you a drink - if you still believe afterwards that it is evil, I will give up drinking for life" "How could I, a Nun, sit outside this public house drinking?!" "I'll get the barman to put it in a teacup for you, then no-one will know" The Nun reluctantly agrees, so Arthur goes inside to the bar. "Another pint for me, and a triple Southern Comfort on the rocks", then he lowers his voice and says to the barman "... and could you put the Southern Comfort in a teacup?" "Oh no! Is that the mayor dressed up as a Nun again, is she?" ___________________________________________________
