The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found. --- Calvin Trillin (1935 - ) Punctuality is the virtue of the bored. --- Evelyn Waugh (1903 - 1966) Eighty percent of married men cheat in America.

Nothing could dampen her excitement -- not even her parents' nasty divorce a year before. Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear and would be the best dressed mother-of-the-bride ever! A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new young wife had bought the exact same dress! Jennifer asked her to exchange it, but she refused. "Absolutely not. I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I'm wearing it," she replied. Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, "Never mind sweetheart. I'll get another dress. After all, it's your special day." A few days later, they went shopping and did find another gorgeous dress. When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, "Aren't you going to return the other dress? You really don't have another occasion where you could wear it." Her mother just smiled and replied, "Of course I do, dear. I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding." Jennifer just smiled at her mother. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ The young man from Mississippi came running into the store and said to his buddy, "Bubba, somebody just stole your pickup truck from the parking lot!" Bubba replied, "Did you see who it was?" The young man answered, "I couldn't tell, but I got the license plate number!" "That's no help," Bubba replied, "I'm using the license plate I stole off the mayor's truck to cut down on the speeding tickets." ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Robert Kazee 39, London, Kentucky Kentucky man tried fighting deputy A London, Kentucky, man was about to be arrested, but he was determined not to go down without a fight. The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office said Deputy Taylor McDaniel responded to a call that Robert Kazee was “walking down the road, screaming and causing a disturbance” on Green Acres Road, eight miles south of London, about 3:50 p.m. Monday. When McDaniel arrived, Kazee, 39, of London, was still in the road, according to the sheriff’s office. McDaniel told Kazee that he was under arrest, and Kazee responded by taking his shirt off and fighting McDaniel. “Deputy McDaniel was finally able to get Kazee into his cruiser,” but while McDaniel was driving to the jail, Kazee started kicking the windows of the cruiser, so McDaniel had to stop “and subdue Kazee,” the sheriff’s office said. “During this time, Kazee assaulted Deputy McDaniel and Major Chuck Johnson,” according to the sheriff’s office. Kazee was taken to the Laurel County Detention Center. He is charged with two counts of third-degree assault of a police officer, as well as public intoxication, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and menacing.
Tech Support Pits From: A few people Re: Windows start-up sequence Dear Webby How can I re-arrange the start-up sequence for different programs in Windows to get to the mail faster? Dears Messing with the start-up sequence is more of a black art than a clear science. Windows doesn't really start things one at a time, but more like the "But first..." joke from a few days ago. And before all that, it loads parts of Internet Explorer to make magazine testers think MSIE loads faster than Chrome, Firefox or Oprera, when you open a browser. Then it starts loading stuff, but while it is waiting for the hard drive to deliver what it needs for that, it starts loading more stuff. Even though it appears as insane as a Chinese Fire Drill in Vancouver, it does actually finish loading everything in the shortest possible time. If you mess with it, it is probably going to take longer. You can probably get better results if you simply use the Tools in CrapCleaner and dump no longer fashionable utilities and stuff right out of the start-up sequence. You can also get to your mail faster if you reduce the restore period in MailWasher to the minimum. If you don't miss any mail in one day, you are probably not going to root through the spam restore bin a few days later. Also age off the blacklist in 2 days max. Spammers don't use the same forged name twice in a row anyway. Have FUN DearWebby

A friend of mine was trying to figure out the best way to break up with her boyfriend. She seemed awfully concerned that he not be angry. "Are you afraid he'll spread lies about you?" I asked. "I don't mind the lies, but if he ever tells the truth, I'll break his bloody neck," she answered.

___________________________________________________ When the family car developed a slight knock, the husband asked his wife if she had bought prmium or regular gas, but she couldn't remember. "You probably got the cheaper gas," he said. "That could account for the engine running so rough." "No, the gas wasn't cheaper!" she replied indignantly. "Well, how much did it cost?" asked the husband probingly. "It cost the same as always." said the wife. "I told the man to put in the usual ten dollars worth." ___________________________________________________
