___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Johnnie Lee Carter, 29, Odessa, Texas Father charged with beating toddler, gluing mouth, eyes shut A father suspected of gluing shut the eyes and mouth of his 1- year-old daughter has been arrested in West Texas. El Paso County records show 29-year-old Johnnie Lee Carter is being held Wednesday on a charge of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury. On Sept. 16, Odessa police called to a domestic disturbance found the girl with facial injuries and her mouth and eyes glued. According to an affidavit, the toddler’s mother told police that Carter choked and punched the girl then applied adhesive. A super glue stick was found nearby. Carter had fled. According to Dallas News, an arrest affidavit also showed that Carter had stuffed a 2-month-old infant underneath a pile of pillows and blankets. Carter was arrested Monday at a motel in El Paso by U.S. Marshals after being on the run for 10 days. He faces extradition to Odessa, some 270 miles away.
From: Janice Re: New Yahoo mail rigamarole Dear DearWebby, In case anyone else runs into this problem with the "new improved" Yahoo. It took a while but I finally figured it out. I am definitely not a computer guru like you. I have been working with this "new and improved" Yahoo since the first of the year. The email that I enjoy had been going directly to "trash". I went in opened it and read it before I did anything as I hate to miss your information. That was unnecessary but I wanted to be sure. I found the "Spam" notation which I had not seen before. So I marked it "Spam". It went into the "Spam" folder. I went into the "Spam" folder found the "Not Spam" button and clicked it. It went into the "Inbox". I proceded normally after that. (Hopefully, it will continue going to the "Inbox".) I understand why Yahoo is such a mess, too many gurus working on it. It is a pain in the toucus to figure out, but it does keep the old brain cells active. Maybe that is why I like it. Keep up the good work educating. We need more good honest people helping. Thank goodness we have you. Sincerely, Janice Dear Janice I tried Yahoo mail, once, briefly, in 1995, for about one day. Compared to Eudora, which I have been using since about 1992, Yahoo mail was simply not good enough. I do have a Yahoo account because some news groups require one to get access. However, that is the extent of my involvement with Yahoo, aside from cussing at it whenever they censor mail. As you probably know, I am one of the originators of Internet Postcards. At the hayday of postcards there were about half a million cards sent through our servers on an average day, and totally insane numbers on Valentines Day and Mothers Day. With Yahoo censoring cards because Valentines Day Cupids showed bare naked elbows, and because the cards overloaded Yahoo, I used to get horrific amounts of complaints from yahoos. They eased off a bit with the censoring when AliBaba bought Yahoo and then dumped it off on Verizon for about the same amount as what the Southern Wall will cost, but there is still way too much censoring going on. Every week a subscriber or two of the Humor letter complains that Yahoo or SBCglobal has stolen their subscription. You can see that I am most definitely not a fan of Yahoo. So I am just pasting your letter as is. Have FUN! DearWebby

A soldier went up to the Company Cook and said, "If you put a lid on the pan there'll be less dust and dirt in the food". The cook, very annoyed, replied, "You mind your own business. Your duty is to defend the homeland!" "That's right," said the soldier. "But my duty is to defend it, not to eat it." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Aphid Repellent Plants You can help prevent aphid infestations on your vegetables by planting them with plants that repel aphids. Some examples are anise, chives, coriander, garlic, onions, petunias and radish. Another trick is lay some aluminum foil around the base of a plant, the reflection will help deter the aphids. ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ The new librarian decided that, instead of checking out children's books by writing the names of borrowers on the book cards herself, she would have the youngsters sign their own names. She would then tell them that they were signing a "contract" for returning the books on time. Her first customer was a second grader, who looked surprised to see a new librarian. He brought four books to the desk and shoved them across to the librarian, giving her his name as he did so. The librarian pushed the books back and told him to sign them out. The boy laboriously printed his name on each book card and, with a look of utter disgust on his face, handed them to the librarian. Before the librarian could even start her speech, the boy said, disdainfully, "That other librarian we had could write." ___________________________________________________ Thanks to Irene for this story: Returning from a trip to visit my grandmother in Canada, I was stopped by a state trooper in New York for exceeding the speed limit. Grateful to have received a warning instead of a ticket, I gave him a small bag of my grandmother's delicious chocolate chip cookies and proceeded on my way. Later, I was stopped by another trooper. "What have I done?" I asked. "Nothing," the trooper said, smiling. "I heard you were passing out great chocolate chip cookies." ___________________________________________________

Ending his sermon, a preacher announced that he would preach on Noah and the Ark on the following Sunday, and gave the scriptural reference for the congregation to read ahead of time. A couple of boys noticed something interesting about the placement of the story in the Bible. They slipped into the church and glued two pages of the pulpit Bible together. The next Sunday, the preacher got up to read his text. "Noah took unto himself a wife," he began, "and she was" - he turned the page to continue - "three hundred cubits long, fifty wide and thirty high." He paused, scratched his head, turned the page back, read it silently, and turned the page again. Then he looked up at his congregation and said, "I've been reading this old Bible for near fifty years, but....this seems to require further study." ___________________________________________________
