Today, May 16 in
2000 U.S. First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton was nominated to run
for U.S. Senator in New York. The senator for that riding had been
ordered to resign by the Democratic Party to give the 100% safe
riding to Hillary in exchange for not making a big fuss about
Monica. That got her the very lucrative lifetime senator's pension
and deluxe health care.

Girl, 2, screamed in agony after she and mother were stabbed by her father with a steak knife Harrowing police bodycam footage shows a two year old girl screaming in agony after being stabbed in the arm by her father with a steak knife. The youngster, who has not been named, was sliced through the arm by Theodis Coleman, 37, after police arrived to deal with a domestic dispute at his home in Jonesboro, Ak., last month. Footage released by Jonesboro PD begins with Coleman arguing with his partner over custody of the children, saying ‘You didn’t have to call no police.’ Moments later he lunges at the woman with the knife, slicing both her and the little girl through the arm. That prompts an immediate response from the cops, who order Coleman to the floor while pointing their guns at him. After showing the altercation from a different angle, the video then cuts to show the screaming toddler being rushed outside by her mother, while the woman slams her partner for what he has done, saying ‘He just stabbed me. I hate this boy.’ One cop calmly instructs her to hold the little girl’s arm and put pressure on it as he makes a tourniquet from a first aid bag inside his cruiser. She was later flown by helicopter to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tn. Both mother and daughter are expected to make a full recovery. Coleman was charged with second-degree domestic battery and is in Craighead County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bond, reports the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. Police say the incident arose after the woman threatened to leave Coleman and take the little girl with her. A Jonesboro PD spokesman hailed the actions of its officer, saying: ‘Officer Blaine Middlecoff was able to act without hesitation to stop life-threatening bleeding because of the training he had received from the Stop the Bleeding Foundation.’
Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: Daylight Saving Time problem Dear Webby Since the early arrival of daylight saving time my clock will not stay updated. I do not have the pc set to do automatic updates as I want to update only the things I want. I have clicked on the clock time on the taskbar & reset it on the clock setting but it keeps going back to the old time. I have clicked "apply" then ok. Do you have any suggestions as to how I can keep it set to the current time? Thanks for your help on this & other questions. Sharon Dear Sharon Seems your Windows is short a few marbles. As long as you got theIE7 block in place, and don't update the Media Player, all other updates are safe. In the meantime, just change your time zone one zone to the one East of you. Have FUN DearWebby
A man says to a friend, "I've got a riddle for you. If there were three crows on a fence post and I shot one, how many would be left?" Without hesitating, the friend says, "Two left." "You don't get the point," the man says. "Listen to the riddle. There were three crows on a fence post. Then I shot one. How many would be left?" "Two left," the friend says again. "No," the man says in a superior tone of voice. "None would be left, because if I shot one then the other two would fly away." "Isn't that what I've been saying?" the friend says. "Two left."

We took a friend to dinner at a restaurant that offered free refills of nonalcoholic drinks. Before the main course arrived, she kept the waitress scurrying for refills. When our friend asked for yet another, the waitress raised an eyebrow and asked, "What did you have for lunch, a sponge?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Grow Plants for Gifts I take cuttings of my indoor and outdoor plants and begin new ones in saved plastic planters. These are my "give away" plants. Last week alone, I saved money by being able to use them as "thank you" gifts. Wrap them up in some cellophane with ribbons and they look store bought. By Kathy Be careful that you don't get carried away with that! That is what my father started to do after he retired. Now have a look at his site at http://dawna.com Most recent page is at the top in the menu on the left. He specialized on cacti, because they only need watering 2 - 3 times a year and multiply nicely as long as they are not pampered. Now he has over 5000 plants and no time to label the pictures! Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Dave for this story: Becky prepared a pasta dish for a dinner party she was giving. In her haste, however, she forgot to refrigerate the spaghetti sauce, and it sat on the counter all day. She was worried about spoilage, but it was too late to cook up another batch. She called the local Poison Control Center and voiced her concern. They advised Becky to boil the sauce again. That night, the phone rang during dinner, and one of the guests volunteered to answer it. Becky's face dropped as the guest called out, "It's the Poison Control Center. They want to know how the spaghetti sauce turned out."
