His brother, of course, agreed. It was not until the brother was accompanying the casket down the aisle, however, that he realized that he had neglected to ask the sex of the deceased. This was information that he would need for his remarks during the service. As he approached the first pew where the deceased's relatives were seated he nodded toward the casket and whispered to one woman, "Brother or sister?" "Cousin," she replied. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Lynn for this story: As the owner of a clunker, I was used to dealing with a variety of car breakdowns. One day at the supermarket, just after I had filled my trunk with groceries, I noticed a stream of fluid pouring out of the bottom of the car. I knew I had to get home before the car was once again out of action. When I arrived I asked my husband to take a look at the problem. Expecting the worst, I braced myself for his diagnosis. When he came back in, he was smiling. "It's apple juice," he said. ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joel Davis, 22, NYC, New York Ivy Leaguer, Nobel nominee with long list of liberal bona fides arrested for child porn and activity with kids An Ivy Leaguer who ran an organization advocating for the end of sexual violence has been arrested in New York for trying to set up a sexual tryst with children as young as two. Joel Davis was charged with attempting to sexually exploit a child, enticing a child to engage in sexual activity and possessing child pornography, The Washington Post reported. What makes the case so egregious is that Davis, a 22-year-old Columbia University student, is the founding executive director of the international group Youth to End Sexual Violence, focused on child victims, the newspaper reported. He has worked alongside actress Angelina Jolie and was reportedly nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Davis is also an active Hillary Clinton supporter.

He has worked alongside actress Angelina Jolie and was reportedly nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Davis is also a Hillary Clinton supporter. And his liberal bona fides don’t stop there, as he served as a youth ambassador for the United Nations. More from the Washington Post: He was the founding executive director of the international organization Youth to End Sexual Violence. He served as a youth ambassador for the United Nations special representative on sexual violence in conflict. He was on the steering committee of the International Campaign to Stop Rape & Gender Violence in Conflict, a group of more than 5,000 human rights organizations and experts worldwide. The Post reported that, according to a federal criminal complaint, Davis exchanged text messages with undercover FBI agents, trying to arrange meetings with a 9-year-old girl, an 8-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy. He allegedly sent sexually explicit photos and videos of children and infants, and was clear in his communications with the FBI agents that he wanted to engage in sex with children of any age The complain also said Davis admitted to meeting a 13-year-old boy on the dating app Grindr, speaking with him on Snapchat. He engaged in sexual activity with the child in June at his Manhattan apartment. U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman called Davis’s alleged actions “unfathomable.” “Davis started an organization devoted to stopping sexual violence, while allegedly engaged in the duplicitous behavior of sharing explicit images of infants engaged in sexual activity,” Berman said, according to The Post. “The conduct alleged against Joel Davis is as unfathomable as it is sickening,” he said, adding that “law enforcement will keep its watchful eye on the darkest corners of the internet to bring predators to justice.”
Tech Support Pits From: Carlie Re: Screen Savers Dear Webby I got all kinds of mail telling me that I need to buy a screen saver to protect my monitor. Is there any truth to that? Carlie Dear Carlie No truth to that at all. Today's monitors don't need screen savers. If you need to hide netflix or farmville from nosy co-workers, you can use the built in screen savers. There is a big choice, all the way from pitch-black to slide show. Next company party take pictures of all the boneheads and drunks, and put them into a new folder. Then Select slideshow or photos for the screen saver, and browse to THAT folder. You can select the time it waits before starting, and how long it shows each picture. Charge $25 to remove somebody's picture. You can also take screen shots of the spreadsheets you work on, and put them into a folder. Make that one flip slides quickly. On one old machine, where I use a traditional screen saver, I use Mystify from Windows 3.3. It still works. There are also screen savers built in. Just right-click on the desktop, Personalize, Screen Saver (right hand bottom) and select one. You can also google for "Free screen savers" and get all kinds of them for your particular version of Windows. For Gramma's birthday you can make her a screensaver with all the pictrues you got that she would love to see. Put them onto a camera chip or thumb drive, and sneak them into a new folder on her machine, then set a screen saver to use those pictures. I bet it will make her cry! Have FUN DearWebby

Since this is their first party and the wife hasn't done much cooking, the husband suggests they order out for Chinese food and she could bake a cake for dessert. She agrees, but on Friday afternoon, the wife calls her husband in tears. "The only recipe I can find is for a cake that will feed four," she says. "Why don't you just double the recipe?" her husband asks. Just before quitting time the husband gets another call from her, and this time she is frantic. "I just can't do it," she says. "It's impossible." "Now, now, what's the matter?" "Well, I doubled everything, just like you said," she tells him, "and it's ready to go in the oven." "Then what's the problem?" he asks. The wife sobs. "The book says that the cake must be baked at 350 degrees. I've checked the oven and it doesn't go up to 700 degrees!"

>From David I'm also a counselor who helps coordinate support groups for visually-impaired adults. Many participants have a condition known as macular degeneration, which makes it difficult for them to distinguish facial features. I had just been assigned to a new group and was introducing myself. Knowing that many in the group would not be able to see me well, I jokingly said, "For those of you who can't see me, I've been told that I look like a cross between Paul Newman and Robert Redford." Immediately, one woman called out, "We're not THAT blind!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Inexpensive Desk Make a great desk top out of an old smooth door (knobs removed). Use short filing cabinets or milk crates to support the door. This is a great way to recycle old doors you may have sitting in your garage. Some sanding and staining and then a few coats of marine spar varnish will make it look really great and totally impervious to ANY spills. The darker you stain the door, the easier it will be on your eyes. If the door is painted white, paint it brown or dark green. The slate green that you may remember from old school blackboards is the easiest on the eyes. Have FUN! DerWebby Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ A Swiss guy, looking for directions, pulls up at a bus stop where two Americans are waiting. "Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asks. The two Americans just stare at him. "Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?" he tries. The two continue to stare. "Parlare Italiano?" No response. "Hablan ustedes Espanol?" Still nothing. The Swiss guy drives off, extremely disgusted. The first American turns to the second and says, "Y'know, maybe we should learn a foreign language." "Why?" says the other. "That guy knew four languages, and it didn't do him any good." ___________________________________________________

Faced with hard times, the company offered a bonus of one thousand dollars to any employee who could come up with a way of saving money. The bonus went to a young woman in accounting who suggested limiting future bonuses to ten dollars.
