The father, being modern and well-schooled in handling children, hid his smile behind his hand. "That's a serious step," he said. "Have you thought it out completely?" "Yes," his young son answered. "We can spend one week in my room and the next in hers. It's right across the street, so I can run home if I get scared of the dark." "How about transportation?" the father asked. "I have my wagon and we both have our tricycles," the little boy answered. The boy had an answer to every question his father raised. Finally, in exasperation, his dad asked, "What about babies? When you're married, you're likely to have babies, you know." "We've thought about that, too," the little boy replied. "We're not going to have babies. Every time she lays an egg, I'm going to stomp on it!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Rubye for this story: A little boy goes to his father and asks "Daddy, how was I born?"

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dejuane Ramel Wilson, 24, Wakefield, Virginia Virginia man leads police on high-speed chase across 3 counties A man led police on a high-speed chase Wednesday across three Southwest Virginia counties. Apparently, the pursuit from Pulaski County to Roanoke County was on his bucket list. “He said it was his lifelong dream to run from the police,” Virginia State Police Sgt. Rick Garletts said. Dejuane Ramel Wilson, 24, of Wakefield was arrested and charged with eluding police. Garletts said more charges could be filed. About 10:33 a.m., a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro failed to stop on Interstate 81 at the 104 mile marker after a sheriff’s deputy recorded the vehicle speeding in a work zone, according to Garletts. Virginia State Police took over the pursuit when the Camaro entered Montgomery County. In Roanoke County, at the 132 mile marker, police recorded the vehicle traveling 130 mph. State police cars in front of and behind the Camaro managed to stop it on the shoulder at the 138.7 mile marker, leading to a slight traffic backup. At 10:52 a.m., Wilson was taken into custody, Garletts said.
From: Roland Re: What is a Trojan Dear DearWebby, My brother claims he has the Trojan Virus in his computer. What is this, and what would you suggest he do to get rid of it: Roland Dear Roland A Trojan is rarely a virus. A Virus is a program, that doesn't just cause problems, but that also infects other machines. A Trojan is a back-door for spammers and hackers. It lets the hackers enter his machine and use it for sending spam in the background, while the clueless goof is cyber-sexing in the foreground. Naturally, he is not winning any popularity contest by hosting a spam spreader and having Millions of people sincerely wishing him bad luck. Any decent anti-virus program like MalwareBytes prevents Trojans from entering, even when he clicks on disreputable spam. They also get rid of Trojans that have already been installed. Have FUN!

"Daddy," said Little Johnny, "I'd like to get married." "Sure, son." said his father. "Anyone special in mind?" "Yes," answered Johnny. "Grandma." "Now, wait a minute," said his father. "You don't think I'd let you marry my mother, do you!!" "Why not?" the Johnny asked. "You married mine."

Curling - Shuffleboard, bowling and janitorial work finally get their respect in this sport. In curling, a stone is pushed down a frozen playing area, which is 46 yards long and 14 feet wide, and the closest to the "button" wins. Members of the curling team are allowed to use brooms to sweep the ice ahead of the stone so it will go further. Another part of the sport is to knock an opponents stone away from the button. The earliest known curling stone, found in Scotland, dates back to 1511, and a 1560 painting by the Flemish artist Pieter Breughel shows a Dutch curling scene, complete with brooms. Breughel's painting, entitled "Sweep, Ye Drunken Bastards! Sweep!" is the earliest known visual representation of curling. ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Start a Book Exchange A way to save money on books is a book exchange with friends and family.

The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play. "Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently. "But you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances." During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected, and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up." At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star- Spangled Banner." And that is how the substitute organist became the permanent organist. ___________________________________________________
