Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475 - 1564) Don't rule out working with your hands. It does not preclude using your head. --- Andy Rooney (1919 - ) "Iran is going to build an island just for women who want to go on vacation. No men will be allowed on the island. Which leads to the question, 'If something goes wrong, whose fault will it be?'" --- Jay Leno ______________________________________________________ Fresh out of business school, a young man answered a want ad for an accountant. He was being interviewed by a very nervous man who ran a small business that he had started himself. "I need someone with an accounting degree," the man said. "But mainly, I'm looking for someone to do my worrying for me." "Excuse me?" the accountant said. "I worry about a lot of things," the man said. "But I don't want to have to worry about money. Your job will be to take all the money worries off my back." "I see," the accountant said. "And how much does the job pay?" "I'll start you at eighty thousand." "Eighty thousand dollars!" the accountant exclaimed. "How can such a small business afford a sum like that?" "That," the owner said, "is your first worry." ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Laura was attending her High School reunion and was having a blast. As the evening was drawing to a close, the master of ceremonies for the night proceeded to hand out bottles of champagne to the graduates who had traveled the farthest distance to attend the reunion, the graduate who had been married the longest time, the graduate who had become the most successful, etc. And Laura wondered if she was going to get a prize too. Sure enough, the master of ceremonies called out her name. "Laura, you win with 11 kids." and then, trying to be clever, he added in "And champagne is only half the prize. The other half is a giant, economy size bottle of aspirin." "Don't bother with the aspirin," Laura replied. "It's obvious with these many kids that I've never had a headache." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ The personnel office received an email requesting a listing of the department staff broken down by age and sex.

___________________________________________________ Reported by Michael An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD AND a Darwin Award has been earned by Kaulana “Toji” Reinhardt, 26, Wailuku, Hawaii Suicide by cop in Hawaii On Sunday, December 23, 2018 at about 10:35 a.m., officers observed a stolen red Toyota Tacoma being driven by Kaulana “Toji” Reinhardt. Reinhardt was wanted for numerous outstanding arrest warrants to include one for Attempted Murder in the First Degree with a bail set at $1 million. Officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the truck but Reinhardt refused to stop and a pursuit ensued. The pursuit continued and ended on Kaohu Street at Market Street in Wailuku. As two officers attempted to apprehend Reinhardt, he pulled out a handgun. Shots were exchanged and Reinhardt was hit. Officers immediately administered CPR and applied an AED until medical personnel arrived. Reinhardt was then transported to the Maui Memorial Medical Center where he would succumb to his injuries. One officer sustained minor injuries that did not require medical treatment. No other officers or bystanders were hurt in this incident. Police temporarily closed off a portion of South Market Street and Kaohu Street to conduct the investigation. The officers involved had three and 15 years of experience, respectively. Both officers have been placed on Administrative Leave, which is normal procedure in these types of investigations.
From: Armond Re: Occasional priting Dear Webby, I only use my printer for one week every quarter year, but then print quite a lot. After sitting for three months, even fresh name brand cartridges are dead. Is there a way to keep them from dying in the meantime? Would it help to take them out and put them into the freezer? Armond Dear Armond The freezer will destroy them for sure. Wrapping them tightly with Saran wrap, or similar stretch film wrap, may help occasionally, with some brands, but is not really a reliable solution. Especially if you 'print quite a lot', get a laser printer. Laser printers are cheaper per page, and since the toner, that they use instead of ink, is a dry powder, it does not make any difference how long it sits between print jobs. A Laser takes 5 - 10 seconds to warm up after cold hibernation, but it does not care if the hibernation was during lunch hour or a few years. Once warmed up, it will print MUCH faster than an inkjet printer. It spits out a page in the time an inkjet printer prints one line. The warming up is not for the toner, but for the hot fuser roller, that melts the dry toner into the paper. All the photos, that you get at photo finishing places, are printed with laser printers on photo paper. Laser printers have come way down in price. Have FUN! DearWebby

One of my college friends asked a group of us for advice on organizing his final report for the year. "Why don't you use Roman numerals to head the different sections?" another friend suggested. "I already thought of that," he replied. "But my keyboard doesn't have Roman numerals on it."

When Mother was ill, however, he volunteered to go to the supermarket for her. She sent him off with a carefully numbered list of seven items. Dad returned shortly, very proud of himself, and proceeded to unpack the grocery bags. He had 1 bag of sugar, 2 dozen eggs, 3 hams, 4 boxes of detergent, 5 boxes of crackers, 6 eggplants, and 7 green peppers. ___________________________________________________ Thanks to Wendy for sending this story: A Taxi driver is stuck in a traffic jam going into downtown Chicago.

Otherwise, they are going to douse them with gasoline and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, taking up a collection.' The cabbie asks, 'On average, how much is everyone giving?'

What's the Heirloom Christmas Book about? It is a BIG e-book with all the stories, that your great grandmother recited or read to your grandmother, when she was a kid. I want these stories to be preserved. You may know what it is about, when somebody mentions "bittersweet love like in 'The Gift Of The Magi'," but with today's education, your kids or even their teachers, probably don't know. So I collected these classics and put them all together into one e-book. This book of Christmas Stories is a cultural treasure, that should be passed on to our descendants. Since it is in e-book format, you can put it onto a CD for each kid, and fill the rest of the CD with family pictures and other keepsakes, making it a true heirloom. I have produced a smaller version last year. This final edition has more stories and illustrations, but I kept the price down to the same $10. The Heirloom Christmas Book also makes a nice Christmas gift!
