The doctor smiled, "Maybe so.. But the jury threw the case out of court due to lack of evidence" ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Safaa Boular, 18, in jail London, England Youngest woman to plot terror attack on British soil jailed for life The youngest woman in history to be convicted of plotting a terror attack on British soil has been jailed for life. Safaa Boular, 18, hid her Islamic State-inspired plans in coded conversations about preparations for an innocent Mad Hatterís tea party. She today became the final member of Britainís first all-woman terror cell to be sentenced at the Old Bailey. Boular was sitting her GCSEs when she was seduced online by IS fighter Naweed Hussain, who was originally from Coventry. After she was stopped from joining the 32-year- old in Syria, she discussed a grenade and gun attack on the British Museum instead. Their plans were uncovered by online MI5 role-players and the Boular family home in Vauxhall, south London, was bugged. Boularís resolve was strengthened when she learned Hussain had been killed in a drone strike in early April last year. While in custody for trying to travel to the war zone, she passed the baton to her older sibling Rizlaine. In coded telephone calls, they discussed a traditional English tea party with an Alice in Wonderland theme, the trial heard. Rizlaine Boular then set about arming herself and looking at targets around the Palace Of Westminster. She was helped by her mother Mina Dich, unaware they were being watched by counter-terrorism police. The older sister shared her plans with her friend Khawla Barghouthi, 21, and even practiced the knife attack at her home in Willesden, north-west London. Rizlaine, 22, was shot when armed police moved in to arrest the gang on 27 April last year but made a full recovery. She was jailed for life with a minimum term of 16 years, having admitted preparing acts of terrorism. Dich, 44, from Vauxhall Cross, south London, was jailed for six years and nine months with an additional five years on licence for helping her. UK Barghouthi, who pleaded guilty to failing to alert authorities, was jailed for two years and four months. Following a trial Safaa Boular was found guilty of two counts of preparing terrorist acts. She was today jailed for life with a minimum of 13 years.
Tech Support Pits From Kelly Re: Lights for digital camera Dear Webby, What kinds of lights should I get for taking mixed indoor and outdoor pictures with my digital camera? Thanks Kelly Dear Kelly When mixing indoor and outdoor, as in taking a picture out through an archway or a window or door towards scenery, you need very powerful lights. 1000 Watt, yes one thousand Watt Quartz construction lights work best. They usually come with an adjustable swivel mount and a huge alligator clamp to attach it to just about anything. Put a regular 1500 Watt dimmer switch and outlet into a dual outlet box for exterior usage at the end of an extension cord. The exterior outlet boxes not only make it usable outside, they have smooth corners and don't tear up your equipment case. 1000 Watts might seem like an awful lot, but there will be times when you wish you had two of them. Have FUN DearWebby

It must have had a little damp spot on it because it bled onto my beige shorts. I'm glad I did not throw it in the wash with the colored clothes.

A man once counseled his son that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a little gunpowder on his corn flakes every morning. The son did this religiously, and he lived to the age of 93. When he died, he left 14 children, 28 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren, and a 15 foot hole in the wall of the crematorium. ____________________________________________________
