One day his neighbor pays him a visit and says: "So how is your strange business going?" "What do you mean strange?" "Because you sell only trumpets and guns!" "So?" "Well, let me put it this way, what do you sell the most, trumpets or guns?" "It evens itself out. Each time a customer buys a trumpet, one of his neighbors buys a gun." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ At a local coffee bar, a young woman was expounding on her idea of the perfect mate to some of her friends.

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Marissa Lucero, 18, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Milwaukee woman, 18, facing 2nd DUI charge after leading deputies on 100 mph chase The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office tells FOX6 News an 18-year- old Milwaukee woman was arrested for her second OWI offense early Tuesday morning, Nov. 27. Officials say Marissa Lucero led deputies on a chase reaching speeds of 100 mph. According to the sheriff's office, just after midnight deputies tracked a vehicle traveling on I-43 going 71 in a 50 mph zone. Authorities attempted to stop the vehicle, but it did not stop. A chase ensued and officials say the fleeing driver reached speeds in excess of 100 mph and veered through traffic. After exiting at Capitol Drive, officials say the vehicle struck a curb and damaged a front tire and axle. It came to a stop on a median near Messmer High School. The chase wasn't over. Lucero can be seen making a run for it just as backup arrives. Law enforcement can be seen giving chase. Lucero was captured by deputies and arrested. While leading Lucero back to the squad car, emotions took over. Lucero can be heard screaming for her mother over and over. Deputies found a half bottle of vodka on the front passenger floor of the vehicle she crashed. Two deputies received minor injuries in the chase. The sheriff's office says this is Lucero's second OWI offense -- with a previous arrest in May of this year. Lucero was not allowed to be behind the wheel due to the previous conviction. According to the sheriff's office, Lucero faces felony charges of Vehicle Operator Flee/Elude an Officer, 2nd Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, and Resisting/Obstructing an Officer-Causing Soft Tissue Injury. Lucero will also receive a misdemeanor charge of Operating After Revocation-OWI-related, citations for speeding, and Refuse to Submit to Intox/Blood. If convicted on all charges, Lucero faces up to 20 years and nine months in prison. Lucero's bail has been set at over $6,000, so that she can afford to have another dingbat malfunction by the time she goes to court.
From: George Re: My own web site Dear Webby, You advertise web space from $2.50 up. I can get web space for free from my ISP, but their support is somewhere in Asia and anything but helpful. They just deal with complaints and don't volunteer any useful information. For design they charge a ridiculous amount that obviously is just intended to totally discourage that avenue. I would imagine that the design costs extra even with your set-up. What would be a reasonable guess for a small business site? George Dear George That depends entirely on how much information you can provide. Actual design is cheap, because we are good and fast with it. However, interrogation to drag the information out of you, about what you might want on your site, that is $150 / hour. If you gather the information together and put it into an email, attach the pictures you want on the site and describe what you want to accomplish, then the design will be $50. We will set it up with re-usable blocks like headers, side-menu, footers, etc. and easy to update content blocks. For a consistent corporate look and feel you can clone any page and just use a different content block, and we show you how to do that. With our system, the only difficult part is the getting around to getting started gathering your info. Have FUN! DearWebby

___________________________________________________ A kind-hearted fellow was walking through Central Park in New York and was astonished to see an old man, fishing rod in hand, fishing over a beautiful bed of lillies. "Tch Tch!" said the passerby to himself. "What a sad sight. That poor old man is fishing over a bed of flowers. I'll see if I can help." So the kind fellow walked up to the old man and asked, "What are you doing, my friend?" "Fishin', sir." "Fishin', eh. Well how would you like to come have a drink with me?" The old man stood up, put his rod away and followed the kind stranger to the corner bar. He ordered a large glass of beer and a fine cigar. His host, the kind fellow, felt good about helping the old man, and he asked, "Tell me, old friend, how many did you catch this morning?" The old fellow took a long drag on the cigar, blew a careful smoke ring and replied, "You are the sixth today, sir!" ___________________________________________________ Morris was in his usual place in the morning sitting at the table, reading the paper after breakfast. He came across an article about a beautiful actress that was about to marry a football player who was known primarily for his lack of IQ and common knowledge. He turned to his wife Sherry, with a look of question on his face. "I'll never understand why the biggest schmucks get the most attractive wives." His wife replies, "Why thank you, dear!" ___________________________________________________

The owner asks why she doesn't buy it from Goldstein's, and she says because they just ran out of them. The owner then says, "Ha! When I'm out of them, they're only $29.95!"
