Victoria McArthur said she locked her jaw while eating Starburst candies. She said a piece of the candy caused her top and bottom teeth to stick together, resulting in a condition called "temporal mandibular joint dysfunction." McArthur is demanding $25,000 from the Mars Corp. to pay for her rehabilitation, plus compensation for her pain and suffering. She may have difficulty proving in court that she locked her jaw because of eating a Mars candy, and not because of trying to say "temporal mandibular joint dysfunction" while eating another brand of candy. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

Jessica Collins, 41, was arrested Thursday for the bloody attack in Spring, a Houston suburb. Collins, seen at right, was released from custody after posting $1000 bond on the misdemeanor charge. She is scheduled for a July 19 court appearance. Collins, who lives in Conroe, another Houston suburb, was staying with a female neighbor of the 28-year-old victim. After spending Wednesday evening at a local bar, the three women returned to the victim’s home, where Collins--seeking to keep the party going--asked her host for booze and cigarettes. Instead, the victim asked Collins to leave her residence, a request that allegedly prompted Collins to attack the woman. After yanking the victim to the floor by her hair, Collins allegedly bit off a large piece from the bridge of the woman’s nose. The woman, who needs emergency plastic surgery, told KTRK that she tried to fight off Collins, “but I couldn't. All I could remember was the taste of blood in my mouth.” She also recalled calling her husband while in an ambulance: “I was screaming, like, ‘I don't have a nose. I’m 28 years old and I don't have a nose anymore.’” A court filing accuses Collins of intentionally causing bodily injury to the victim by “biting Complainant with her mouth.” As a condition of her bond, Collins, a divorced mother of three, has been ordered to have no contact with the victim. According to her Facebook page, Collins works at Michaels, the arts and crafts chain, and has studied therapeutic massage. A friend of the victim has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $12,000 to cover medical costs. “Because of the missing piece was never recovered, my friend now needs reconstructive plastic surgery,” notes the solicitation, which adds that the victim was assaulted by a “mentally unstable person” who “lunged at my friend, biting off her nose and swallowing it.”
Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Slow Eudora Dear Webby I did everything that you suggested. There is a bit of an improvement, but Eudora still hangs. The only way that I know around this annoyance is to delete the program through "task master" then restart it. Also programs still are slow to open. For example, PowerChute, my battery backup program takes 23 seconds to open. Then it takes 10 seconds to close it. Do you have any other suggestions to improve the performance of my old W 7 machine, other than formatting the HD and starting over? Thanks again. Bill Dear Bill In Eudora, move all mail except July from the INBOX to a new box that you name, for example PRE-JULY-18 Same thing with the OUT box. Dump the trash Look for where the attachments go. Same thing, move most of them to a new box with a different name. Look for where the EMBEDDED files go. You might have a gazillion Incredimail butterflies and crap. Browse that file with PSP or your favorite graphics program. Sort them by size. 99% of the small crap IS crap. You might be able to tag 10,000 of them and dump them. Just keep the real keepers. Dump the trash again. IN, OUT, EMBEDDED, ATTACHMENTS and TRASH should be as lean as possible. Then Eudora will be fast. You might also want to do some drastic weeding out with your backup. Back up onto a 16 or 32 GB camera chip, then dump the backup on the machine. If it has to check a Gazillion files if they are older or newer, that takes time. The backup program probably does not delete 10 year old files, that are long obsolete. Dump it, and then do a fresh backup. ------------------- Bill wrote back to tell me that Eudora does not hang anymore, and is fast now. Have FUN DearWebby

Two young boys were spending the night at their grandparents. At bedtime, the two boys knelt beside their beds to say their prayers when the youngest one began praying at the top of his lungs. "I PRAY FOR A NEW BICYCLE... I PRAY FOR A NEW NINTENDO... I PRAY FOR A NEW VCR..." His older brother leaned over and nudged the younger brother and said, "Why are you shouting your prayers? God isn't deaf." To which the little brother replied, "No, but Grandma is!"

I went to a medical clinic for an electrocardiogram. While the technician was lining up her machine, I told her I have dextrocardia. "What's that?" she asked. "It means my heart is on the right side of my chest rather than on the left," I answered. "You should set up your machine to accommodate that." As she attached the wires, she asked casually, "Tell me, have you had that for long?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Growing Celery From Kitchen Scraps By Judy [472 Posts, 9,363 Comments] When you are finished with the bunch of celery, put it in a glass of water to root.

Thanks to Kati for this story: A little Mexican boy goes into the kitchen where his Mom is baking. He puts his Hand in the flour and then wipes it all over his face."Mamacita, look, I'm a white boy." His Mom slaps his face and says, "Go show your Father." He goes to his Dad in the living room and says, "Look Papacita, I'm a white boy." His Dad slaps him hard in the face and says, "Go show you Grandmother." The boy goes in his grandmother's room and says, "Mira, Abuelita, I'm a white boy." His grandmother slaps him in the face and sends him back to his Mother. His mother says, "What did you learn from that?" The boy replies: "I have only been white for five minutes and already I don't like you Mexicans!" ____________________________________________________
