The prime purpose of eloquence is to keep other people from talking. --- Louis Vermeil What the world needs is more geniuses with humility, there are so few of us left. --- Oscar Levant (1906 - 1972) The keenest sorrow is to recognize ourselves as the sole cause of all our adversities. --- Sophocles ____________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A man goes to a clinic early on a Monday morning and asks to see a doctor. He appears to be in great pain, and his hands are in bandages. The nurse looks at him sympathetically. "Arthritis, with complications?" she asks. "No," says the man. "Do-it-yourself, with concrete blocks." ------------- Believe it or not, the best remedy by far is doing the dishes! Not loading the dishwasher, but doing them the old fashioned way with your hands deep in the dish water. I have done a lot of concrete work and I KNOW. After doing concrete work I will fight for doing the dishes. Actually, I learned to like doing them and volunteer even if there is no concrete work for many miles around. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Looks like Grand Canyon, AZ Wish I was there! _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A little town attracted the attention of sociologists at the state university because of its high birth rate. A team of researchers wrote a grant proposal, got a chunk of money, hired additional staff members and moved to the town. While the staff was busy getting ready for the big research effort, the project director went to the local coffee shop for a cup of coffee. While he was drinking his coffee, he started talking with the waitress, and at one point in the conversation he asked her if she has any idea why the birth rate is so high. "Sure," she says. "Every morning the 6:00 train comes through here and blows its whistle for the crossing. It wakes everybody up, and, well, it's too late to go back to sleep, and it's too early to get up." ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD AND a Darwin Award has been earned by Shakayla Monae Denson, 26, Tampa, Florida 4-year-old drowned in river was screaming as mom carried her into water The Tampa police chief’s voice seemed to halt more than once Friday as he updated the public on the shocking death of Je’Hyrah Daniels, who witnesses said was carried screaming into the Hillsborough River by her mother Thursday afternoon and left there to drown. Shakayla Monae Denson, 26, is charged with first-degree felony murder, aggravated child abuse and grand theft auto, Chief Brian Dugan said during a Friday morning media briefing. She had been observed earlier, when she stole a car and forced the kid into it, and again later, when she pulled the screaming kid out of the car and carried her into the river. The kid seems to have been aware that her mother was going to drown her. The chief said investigators are struggling to determine why Denson would kill her daughter. “Unfortunately, when you deal with these tragic situations, we tend to have more questions than we do the answers,” Dugan said. “We’re still digging into Denson and what her state of mind is.” The girl's mother, Shakayla Denson, 26, is accused of carrying the screaming girl into the river and dumping her in the murky water before wading out again. The girl's body was found by divers about 30 minutes later. Bronte Wittpenn/Tampa Bay Times via AP “We’re going to have to figure out what her mindset was that took her and put her in a place where she would leave a 4-year-old to drown in the Hillsborough River,” Dugan said. WFTS in Tampa reported that the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office wrapped up an investigation into Denson’s parenting just three days before Je’Hyrah was killed. The agency’s Child Protection Investigation Division began a probe June 19 into allegations of inadequate supervision of the girl. The investigative report obtained by the news station states that about a month before, the toddler was with her mother at her great-grandmother’s home when she wandered away to a nearby park. Though the distance from the house to the park was not listed, the case worker estimated it to be about a six-minute walk. “The mother seems overwhelmed and tired of caring for Je’Hyrah,” the summary of allegations in the report says. “Je’Hyrah is (redacted) non-verbal, and it seems like the mother is upset that she has these disabilities and is not the baby she dreamed of having. “The mother is easily distracted and doesn't show much attention toward Je'Hyrah. She just lets her run around and do what she wants. She doesn't seem to have the maturity to address the special needs that Je’Hyrah has.” The case worker assigned to the investigation reported that Denson’s home was appropriate and free of hazards and had a security system that sounded if a door was opened. Je’Hyrah appeared well cared for and had no bruises or other marks visible on her body, the report says. “She was playing in the house during the visit and appeared to be happy, healthy and active,” the report states. “She was bonded with the mother and appeared to listen to basic commands.”
From: Juniper Re: Disappearing files Dear Webby, Lately I noticed that MailWasher will spool down a hundred or so mails, but then just show a listing of 15 - 20. What's the scoop? Should I be concerned? Juniper Dear Juniper That's just a sign that you are getting good with making filters. For example, if you made a filter that deletes mails automatically, if they contain the names of certain pharmaceuticals or watches or stock in the body of the mail, then MailWasher will count them, but it won't insult your eyes with that crap. Have FUN DearWebby

Once dry, vacuum up the dirt and then clean any leftover stain with Resolve or a similar carpet spot cleaner. If you try to clean the mud when it is wet, it will just spread it around. If you are in a hurry, use Zorb-All or any similar industrial absorbent material. You get it at automotive parts stores and many industrial and construction supply places. It is sort of like an industrial strength kitty litter. A bag that will fill 3 five gallon pails is usually around $12 - $15. It will absorb any liquid and even pull dried and sun baked motor oil out of carpet or concrete. Just sprinkle it on, spread it a bit and let it sit for 15 -20 minutes, less if it is just puddle mud, then sweep or vacuum. Even ancient oil stains on your driveway from the previous owner's old klunker, will get pulled out of the concrete over night. Don't get stuck on the name "Zorb-All". That's a generic name like "Crescent Wrench". The people at the automotive parts store will know what you mean, but the name on the bag will depend on where you live and the brand they stock.

She laughed gaily, "When I don't want a man's attentions," she confided, "and he asks where I live, I just say, 'I'm visiting here.'" "Ha-ha," he laughed, relishing her humor. "Where do you really live?" "In Alaska. I'm just visiting here." ___________________________________________________
