She had explained about magnets and showed how they would pick up nails and other bits of iron. Now it was question time, and she asked, "My name begins with the letter 'M' and I pick up things.

Daniel Stine entered a Missoula Arby’s fast food restaurant and requested a water cup that he then tried to full with soda, Newstalk KGVO reported. When confronted by an employee, Stine allegedly started a fight, Missoula Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh said, according to KGVO. “When confronted by an employee who informed him that he had to pay for the cup of soda he refused and left out one of the entrances,” Welsh explained. “The employee followed him, told him that he was not welcome back then he turned and came back towards the employee and tried to kick that person before walking away again.” When police responded, Stine was seen entering a nearby Denny’s. Cops followed him into a bathroom there and that’s when the suspect became aggressive. “The officers were able to make entry to the bathroom, however, when they did and confronted the man, rather than comply with their instructions he approached them in what appeared to be an aggressive manner,” Welsh explained. “The officers attempted to take control of him physically and that’s when he began to resist and fight with the officers and had to be tased to comply to the officer’s instructions.” Stine now faces four misdemeanor charges of criminal trespass, disorderly conduct, obstructing a peace officer and resisting arrest, according to KGVO — in addition to a felony robbery charge.
From: Guinn Re: Can't restore Dear Webby, You seem to know (or can find out) a lot of answers to our problems, out here in CyberLand. So here is MY problem: Sometime in the past few weeks I must have clicked a wrong key because now I cannot Restore. When I try to Restore, the only day shown in bold numbers is the current date and the current time. How do I get my Restore back? Thanks for any help you can give me, Guinn Dear Guinn You, or some "speeder-upper" utility, must have turned off Restore and wiped out all the old restore data. Running out of disk space also deactivates the Restore. Once you clear out enough space, System Restore will reactivate automatically, but in the meantime you will have lost all your previous restore points. Restore also gets a bit flaky when it gets close to the limit of the space that you allotted for it. It will start dropping old restore points. Theoretically it is supposed to stop dumping when 50% of the allocated space is free. Sometimes it doesn't. If the restore point that you see is not the one made when Restore got turned back on, go to Control Panel, System System-Restore and manage it from there. Have FUN DearWebby

A group of Q-Tips (senior citizens) in TheVillages were exchanging notes about their ailments. "My arm is so weak I can hardly hold this coffee cup." "Yes, I know. My cataracts are so bad I can't see to pour the coffee." "I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck." "My blood pressure pills make my dizzy." "I guess that's the price we pay for getting old." "Well, it's not all bad. We should be thankful that we can still drive!"

An older friend, recently returned from her home town in North Carolina, says they've spruced up the churchyard cemetery since her last visit several years back. "Lots of new greenery," she said. "And families are together now." "Together?" I asked, puzzled. "Well, years ago they never much worried where they buried someone because everyone was a neighbor anyhow. They'd just dig a grave wherever it seemed to balance things. But they've redone it so people are with their children and grandchildren, instead of scattered all over." "You mean they exhumed all those people and re-buried them?" "Oh no," she said. "They just moved the headstones. Everyone agrees it looks ever so much nicer." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning Out The Fridge After cleaning out your refrigerator, dampen a cloth or clean sponge with white vinegar and wipe down the walls and shelves in the fridge.

Schalk burst into Van's room to find Van standing on a chair with a rope around his waist and the end of the rope around the ceiling beam. "Hey Van, what do you think you're doing?" said Schalk. "I'm committing suicide," replied Van. "Well you're going about it all wrong," said Schalk. "You're supposed to tie the rope around your neck, not our waist." "Man, but I tried that yesterday and I dang near choked." ____________________________________________________
