Today is Saturday, August 11

For the Perseid Meteor Shower look to the NortEast tonight,
if you don't have thick smoke. The meteors are just a
little bit brighter than the stars, but because they move
quite swiftly, you see them  easily.

Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ >From Ed After booking my 80-year-old grandmother on a flight from Florida to Nevada, I called the airline to go over her special needs. The representative listened patiently as I requested a wheelchair and an attendant for my mother because of her arthritis and impaired vision to the point of near blindness. My apprehension lightened a bit when the woman assured me that everything would be taken care of. I thanked her profusely. "Oh, you're welcome," she replied. I was about to hang up when she cheerfully asked, "And will your grandmother need a rental car?" "How about a big ol garbage truck? She likes playing demolition derby." ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw, 32, Bluffton, South Carolina Drunk driver tries to escape arrest by telling cops she’s a ‘clean, thoroughbred white girl’ South Carolina police say a woman sped through a stop sign doing 60 mph and was slurring her words when she allegedly used her race as a reason she didn't belong in jail. Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw, 32, was charged with a number of offenses, including drunken driving, speeding and marijuana possession, after an early Saturday traffic stop in Bluffton, South Carolina. Police say a Breathalyzer test showed Cutshaw's blood- alcohol level at 0.18 percent. A person is considered impaired if their BAC is .08 percent or higher, according to South Carolina law. During the course of the arrest, Cutshaw gave a number of reasons why she shouldn't be jailed, some of which were used as evidence of her intoxication, according to police records obtained by the Associated Press and the Island Packet. Among the statements Cutshaw made to police: She is a "very clean, thoroughbred, white girl." She was a cheerleader and in a sorority. Her partner is a police officer. She had good grades, was in the National Honor Society and graduated from a "high accredited university." At the police station, Cutshaw allegedly used her race and cleanliness as a reason she didn't belong in jail. An officer, who was also white, questioned why that would matter. Cutshaw reportedly replied, "You're a cop, you should know what that means." She also said the officer should know her meaning "based on the people that come in this room." A dashcam video of the arrest shows Cutshaw begging not to be jailed and calling herself a "pretty girl," according to the New York Post. In the video she also expressed worry that the arrest would "ruin her career.” Cutshaw told police she drank two glasses of wine. When asked how full the glasses of wine were, she reportedly replied, "I mean I was celebrating my birthday." During the arrest, police say they also found marijuana and rolling papers in her car, and Cutshaw admitted she "may have" smoked earlier. The cops must have had a good laugh about the "Thoroughbred Bimbo".
From: Frieda Re: Empty subject mails Dear Webby, What's the story with mails that arrive without a subject line? Years ago you showed me how to make a filter to dump them with Mailwasher, and that works fine on my work machine, but I am wondering if I also need that on my home machine. So far I just dumped those mails manually. Frieda Dear Frieda "No Subject=No Intelligence" still holds true. You'll never see anything intelligent in an email that arrives without a subject, and you can use that filter as an IQ filter. If the senders don't have a positive IQ number, their mail won't waste your time. For those who want to know how to make that IQ filter, select "does not contain RegExpr" and put \w into the value field. The \w is a wildcard and stands for "any word character". That filter is kinda sneaky. If the subject line has only Chinese, Korean or Arab characters, then that mail gets marked for dumping too, since I won't read it anyway. Don't you pity the poor folks who don't have Mailwasher yet? Have FUN DearWebby

COMPANY B of the 11th Airborne Division stationed in Germany was sent on a two-day march. The weather was cold and rainy, and the roads soon turned to mud. The battalion commander, a colonel, marched with the troops, first with one group and then another. On this moonless night, most of the men didn't recognize the colonel with his rain gear on and military insignia covered up. One miserable private leaned toward him and said, "Can you believe some idiots actually make a career out of this?"

ONE DAY my son's fourth-grade class went on a field trip to the Woods Hole, Mass., Coast Guard station. As a young ensign guided the spirited nine- and ten-year-olds on the tour, a fellow guardsman came up, slapped the ensign on the back and said, "I see they finally gave you your own command." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Saving Money on Tea You can save money on tea by using the same tea bag twice.
