Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost how it feels about dogs. --- Christopher Hampton I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time. --- Orson Welles (1915 - 1985) ______________________________________________________ >From Anna As the lone female in our house, I find that certain male habits have really begun to get on my nerves. One day, I emerged from the bathroom completely exasperated when I bumped into my husband. "What is it with guys that they won't replace the toilet paper?!" I raged. "I know," he said, nodding in agreement. "I noticed that when I was in there earlier." ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ The speed of light is 186,000 miles per second, or the distance a baby can crawl when you turn your back. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ >From Reg No one is more cautious than a first-time parent. After our daughter was big enough to ride on the back of my bicycle, I bought a special carrier with a seat belt and got her a little helmet. The day of the first ride I put her in the seat, double-checked all the equipment, wheeled the bike to the end of the driveway, carefully looked both ways and, swinging my leg up over the crossbar, accidentally kicked her right in the head. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Trish for this picture: Black swans in Australia _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Douglas-Kelly, 50, Hawthorne, Floriduh Floridian who asked police to test his meth is now a wanted man on the run A Floridian who actually brought methamphetamine to a police station to have it tested is now a wanted man, according to court records. Douglas Kelly, 50, was arrested last year on a felony narcotics possession charge. After posting $2500 bond, he was freed from the Putnam County jail. But when he failed to show for subsequent court hearings, a judge issued an arrest warrant for Kelly, who told police he lived in Hawthorne, a city about 15 miles east of Gainesville. Pictured above, Kelly was arrested after calling cops to say that he believed a meth dealer had rooked him. Kelly told investigators that he wanted to “press charges” against the dealer if a test determined that he had “been given the wrong narcotics,” according to a police report. Kelly explained to a Putnam County Sheriff’s Office deputy that he had a “violent reaction” after smoking what he thought was “speed,” but now suspected was Flakka, the synthetic stimulant. After detailing his concerns, Kelly drove to the precinct "to have the illegal narcotics tested," deputies noted. Kelly provided cops with a piece of aluminum foil that contained a “clear, crystal-like substance” that tested positive for methamphetamine. When police catch up with Kelly, he will likely face a second felony rap for bail jumping.
From: Elaine Re: Which browser to design for Dear DearWebby, there are so many browsers out there now that it is hard to decide for which one to design a site for. Each one seems to have a few things different, and it is too timeconsuming to study all of them. Elaine Dear Elaine If you design your pages so that they look OK on Chrome, then they will work fine for most of your visitors, no matter which browser they use. The FireFox fanatics know that some stuff doesn't work right, but they consider that a fair price to pay for religious fredom and the right to use a non-Microsoft browser. The same goes for Mac users. They know that the Safari browser has a few teeth missing and can't cope with Java as well as other browsers, but that is a battle scar that they learned to live with. As long as you don't use the newest and weirdest gimmicks, all browsers can display your stuff, if it is designed for Chrome. Have FUN! DearWebby

DETERMINED to have one last, lazy day of fishing before Christmas vacation's end, I purposely ignored the leaky faucet and the broken gate--household projects that had awaited me all year. When my wife asked, "What are you going to do today?" I grinned and answered, "It starts with F and ends with ISH." "Oh, good," she replied. "You're finally going to FinISH up those projects." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Storing Seeds Seeds that you didn't get around to planting this year should be fine next year if stored properly. Most seeds can be stored for 3 to 4 years. The key will be storing the seeds in a cool, dry, and dark place. Keep the temperature between 40 and 50 degrees F.

___________________________________________________ >From Mona "WATCH OUT," I once cautioned my husband, Mike, who was driving. "Don't you see that car is braking?" Then I snapped, "Don't pass that truck -- his tire is wobbling." Mike turned on his CB and informed the trucker about his loose wheel. I had been in a nasty mood all morning because of a headache, and the incessant squealing of the CB was more than I could handle. "Why do you always get so much static?" I asked. "Because," Mike replied, "I'm married." ___________________________________________________ WHILE ATTENDING a convention, I breakfasted in a cafe, next to two gray-haired men from the same symposium. I overheard one remark, "You know, this is the first time in 40 years we've gone to one of these without our wives." His pal leaned back, contemplating what such freedom might portend. "I know," he said, laying his menu aside. "Let's have biscuits and gravy!" ___________________________________________________

DURING OUR Marine boot-camp class on combat gear, the drill instructor told us to put on the equipment we had been issued; then he would inspect us. Soon after, a frantic recruit, helmet liner in hand, ran up to the DI. "Sir," he began, "the private's helmet liner does not fit the private's head, sir." The DI, obviously perturbed that the recruit hadn't listened to his instructions on how to adjust the liner, looked into the Marine's face. "Okay, private," he said. "This is what I want you to do. Go into the gear locker, find a new head to fit your helmet liner and use that one!" ___________________________________________________
