"Oh, it was terrible,." she replied, "The scenery was nice, but the whole place is just full of foreigners." She sounds like that moronic CNN reporter, who claimed that First Lady Melania was culturally a foreigner and not suitable for motivating school kids. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

An Apopka man was arrested Thursday after he hit an 80-year-old school crossing guard in the face, causing him to fall to the ground, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said. William Reynolds was crossing two elementary school children in the driveway of the 7-Eleven on Wekiva Springs Road, east of Fox Valley Drive in unincorporated Longwood when William Anthony Vindigni, 36, walked up and struck Reynolds in the face, deputies said. The children were not injured. Vindigni left on foot but was located by deputies at the intersection of Palm Springs and Wekiva Springs roads, authorities said. Deputies said Vindigni resisted arrest, but was eventually taken into custody. Vindigni grabbed and pinched a deputy on the back of her leg during the incident, an arrest report said. Reynolds, the crossing guard, was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Investigators believe it was an isolated incident. Vindigni was taken to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility on charges of aggravated battery, battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest.
Tech Support Pits From: Duck Re: Can't find drive C: dear great computer guru..... youve helped me before, hint hint hint. I have windows 10 (almost makes me miss the old DOS days) and suddenly, it has to search for the c:\ drive. I havent moved it, honest. for instance, when I click on "my computer", up comes that stupid little search flashlight and the machine spends up to a minute searching until it finds it. It does this in every program I own that needs to go to somewhere similar. How do I convince it that the drive and all its parts are in the same place theyve always been? can computers get Alzheimer's? the duck Dear Duck Might be time to buy a new hard drive, if you can't get DisKeeper from http://diskeeper.com to defragment and organize it. I would also back up anything important as soon as possible. However, chances are pretty good that DisKeeper can fix it. Expect to be shocked out of your socks by the amount of file fragments that program finds. And expect a very noticeable increase in speed and performance after it has done it's job. After an initial clean-up you can set it to run automatically whenever the screen saver comes on. Have FUN DearWebby
While looking for some history I came across this bonehead award and Darwin award from 10 years ago: Bregenz, Austria In the early morning hours an 18 year old on the way home from a party decided to climb over the iron railing along the train tracks, presumably to get down to the lake on the other side of the tracks. He was wearing a long black down jacket and the train driver never saw him. However, the driver reported hearing the typical faint thud at that location. At dawn the cops checked the area but saw nothing. Later that morning somebody saw blood on the locomotive and a jogger reported body pieces, so four cops and two funeral parlor employees with body bags went to the location. After gathering the pieces of the unidentified 18 year old, police woman Herlinde Kempf, 32, policeman German Baldauf, 63 and funeral parlor worker Manfred Petschenig, 47 stood on the tracks. Presumably they were discussing the stupidity of standing on the tracks of a railroad, where every few minutes some high speed train flies by at around 100 miles per hour. They were promptly converted into Darwin Award winners. Another policeman and another funeral parlor worker standing beside the track were not hurt, but watched the incident. Police claims that the accident happened because the locomotive driver had not been warned that there were idiots, ahem "Darwin Award Applicants", on the loose in the area, and that if he had been warned, he would have slowed down the Intercity Express to a walking pace. The Intercity Express is a very high speed train, that makes just one stop per country betwen Munich and Zurich.

All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle. They reached the altar and the waiting groom; the bride kissed her father and placed something in his hand. The guests in the front pews responded with ripples of laughter. Even the priest smiled broadly. As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card.

____________________________________________________ A wife arrived home after a long shopping trip, and was horrified to find her husband in bed with a young, lovely lady. Just as she was about to storm out of the house, her husband stopped her with these words: "Before you leave, I want you to hear how this all came about. Driving home, I saw this young girl, looking poor and tired, I offered her a ride. She was hungry, so I brought her home and fed her some of the roast you had forgotten about in the refrigerator. Her shoes were worn out so I gave her a pair of your shoes you don't wear because they're last month's style. She was cold so I gave her that new birthday sweater you never wore even once because you had seen a clerk in town wear one just like it. Her slacks were worn out so I gave her a pair of yours that you don't fit into anymore. Then as she was about to leave the house, she paused and asked, 'Is there anything else that your wife doesn't use anymore?' And so, here we are!" ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ A mother took her daughter to the doctor and asked him to give her an examination to determine the cause of the daughter's swollen abdomen. It only took the doctor about 2 seconds to say, "Gimme a break, lady! Your daughter is pregnant!" The mother turn red with fury, and she argued with the doctor that *her* daughter was a good girl, and would *never* compromise her reputation by having sex with a boy. The doctor faced the window and silently watched the horizon. The mother became enraged and screamed, "Quit looking out the window! Aren't you paying attention to me?" "Yes, of course I am paying attention, ma'am. It's just that the last time this happened, a star appeared in the east, and three wise men came from afar. I was hoping they'd show up again, and help your daughter figure out which of her friends got her pregnant!" ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A minister was opening his mail one morning and.

After years of a peaceful co-existence, the Amati shop decided to put a sign in the window saying: "We make the best violins in Italy." The Guarneri shop soon followed suit, and put a sign in their window proclaiming: "We make the best violins in the world." Finally, the Stradivarius family put a sign out at their shop saying: "We make the best violins on this street." ___________________________________________________
