It rained the entire week. We arose daily in our swampy tent, took a cold-water beauty bath from our helmets, donned our pistol belts and ponchos, and trudged through the mud to set up field hospitals. Obviously, our personal appearance frequently left much to be desired. The final blow to our feminine pride occurred while we waited in the mess line in the mud and rain. A young private came by with a camera and asked to take our picture. "It will prove to my girl," he said, "that she has NO reason to be jealous!" After that, he had to run for his life! _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Find the hidden cat! _____________________________________________________

The Virginian-Pilot reports Dashawn Webster, 22, was arrested last week after confessing to a federal investigator. The charges against Webster stem from two investigations targeting websites that distributed child pornography. One investigation was led by The International Criminal Police Organization and another was led by Homeland Security Investigations. Investigators recovered a thumb drive from a suspect in a different case that included child porn images that "appeared to be homemade." The pictures were all watermarked with a single screen name and the word "copyright." The same screen name was discovered on a variety of websites dealing in child pornography. Agents were able to link the screen name to an old address of Webster's in Portsmouth, Virginia. A Portsmouth police sergeant went to the address to confirm Webster lived there, and found the man was babysitting two boys. Soon after, an agent served a search warrant at the house. According to WTKR, Webster admitted to producing the watermarked images and said the victim was just two years old when the pictures were taken. Numerous additional images of child pornography were found on Webster's electronic devices. Horrified neighbor, Carolyn Christensen, said the alleged abuse made her "sick." "He never goes anywhere, he's always there, he never comes out," she added. "He steps out of the doorway sometimes to pick up the children." Webster is being held at Western Tidewater Regional Jail.

The bathroom scale manufacturer was very proud of the new model being introduced at the trade fair. "Listen to these features: it's calibrated to one-one-hundredth of a pound; it can measure your height as well, in feet or meters; it gives you a readout via an LED or human-voice simulator; and that's not all..." "Very impressive," interrupted a none-too-slender sales rep for a chain of home furnishings stores, "but before I place an order I'll have to try it out." "Be my guest," said the manufacturer graciously. No sooner had he taken his place on the scale than a loud, very human-sounding voice issued forth: "One at a time, please, one at a time!"

Thanks to Joe for this story: I made the decision to finally do something about the 600 pounds I'm carrying on my 5'4" frame. So, I headed down to the local sports shoe store and was just amazed at the tremendous selection of different shoes. Flat arch, high arch, over-pronator, neutral-pronator, under-pronator . . . my God! I finally selected a pair and, as I was trying 'em on, I asked June, "What's this little pocket thing on the side for?" She said, "Oh, that's to carry spare change for the payphone, so that you can call me when you've jogged too far to walk back from."

Wendy tried to sell her old car. She was having a lot of problems selling it, because the car had 250,000 miles on it. One day, she told her problem to Paul her good friend. Paul told her, "There is a possibility to make the car easier to sell, but it's not legal." "That doesn't matter," replied Wendy, "if I only can sell the car." "Okay," said Paul. "Here is the address of a friend of mine. He owns a car repair shop. Tell him I sent you and he will turn the counter in your car back to 50,000 miles. Then it should not be a problem to sell your car anymore." The following weekend, Wendy made the trip to the mechanic. About one month after that, Paul asked Wendy, "Did you sell your car?" "No," replied Wendy, "why should I? It only has 50,000 miles on it." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Christmas Shopping Throughout the Year I do my Christmas shopping throughout the year, taking advantage of sales.

Mrs. O'Malley arrived in Boston from Ireland, and in no time at all her bean soup made her the talk of New England society. At a party celebrating the sale of her recipe to a fancy Charles Street restaurant, an old matron approached Mrs. O'Malley and said, "My dear girl, what is the secret of your soup?" Mrs. O'Malley said, "The secret o' me soup is that I use but two-hundred thirty-nine beans to make it." The woman asked, "Why only two-hundred thirty-nine?" Mrs. O'Malley said, "Because one more would make it too farty."

___________________________________________________ The new Librarian decided that instead of checking out children's books by writing the names of borrowers on the book cards herself, she would have the youngsters sign their own names. She would then tell them they were signing a "Contract" for returning the books on time. Her first customer was a second grader, who looked surprised to see a new Librarian. He brought four books to the desk and shoved them across to the Librarian, giving her his name as he did so. The Librarian pushed the books back and told him to sign them out. The boy laboriously printed his name on each book card and then handed them to her with a look of utter disgust. Before the Librarian could even start her speech he said, scornfully, "That other Librarian we had could write." ___________________________________________________
