___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kirsten J. Gaskins , 31, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Drunken Eagles fan puts dog in microwave, attacks her girlfriend A drunken Eagles fan is accused of physically attacking her girlfriend and putting her girlfriend’s dog in a hotel microwave after the Eagles lost in the playoffs. Police say Kirsten J. Gaskins , 31, had been drinking and was upset about her team’s loss when she allegedly began yelling at her girlfriend, knocked the woman the down, climbed on top of her and started to hit her in the face, according to The Morning Call. The girlfriend, who wasn’t identified, was reportedly able to escape by scratching Gaskins in the face but as she went to flee the room, police said Gaskins allegedly threatened to kill her dog if she left the room. When police arrived at the Hanover Township hotel, where the couple had been staying, they found the white Pomeranian stuffed into a small microwave. The microwave had not been turned on and the dog was not harmed. Officers also reported that the woman’s girlfriend had blood on her left ear and cuts on her nose and cheek indicating a fight had taken place, the paper reports. Gaskins initially fled the scene but returned after officers arrived and told her girlfriend the pair were leaving. "When Gaskins returned to the hotel room, she continued to be aggressive and (loudly) cursing at police and the victim," a press release obtained by Oxygen.com said. Officers arrested her and charged her with simple assault, harassment, cruelty to animals and possession of drug paraphernalia. She has since been released on a $20,000 bail. Gaskins has denied the allegations against her telling local station WCAU that the incident was not related to the football game. She also claimed that she had not put the dog into the microwave.
From: Jeannie Re: Saving PowerPoint pictures Dear DearWebby, Several times over the past few months I’ve been sent some amazing power point presentations. Many of the pictures are just breath taking and I’d like to save a few of them. How do I do it? I would ask the people that sent them to me for copies of the photos but have already discovered that they have no clue about the photos as they have just forwarded on what was forwarded to them. Any advice or help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Jeannie Dear Jeannie Just get OpenOffice or office Libre. They are free. They have a PowerPoint viewer in it that shows you the thumbnails on the side, and the big pictures in the center. Or you can hit F5 and enjoy the show running on it's own. You can save the individual pictures, and even edit captions and make your own slide show. The only real difference I found between Open and Libre is that with Opne Office you can, if you want, just install Writer or Calc or Impress, whereas with Libre office, you get the whole apple cart. If you are short on space, use Open Office. Have FUN! DearWebby

One of the world's most famous merchant captains died, having long been admired by his crew and fellow officers. They remained puzzled, however, over a strange ritual he performed daily. While at sea he would lock himself in his cabin and open a small safe, take out an envelope with a note inside and read it. After locking the paper back in the safe, he would return to his duties. For years this went on, and his crew became very curious. Was it a treasure map? Was it a letter from a long lost love? Everyone speculated about the contents of the strange envelope. After laying the captain's body to rest, the first mate led the entire crew back to the ship and into the captain's quarters. He opened the safe, got the envelope and read the words aloud to an astonished crew: 'When standing on the bridge looking towards the bow, Port is Left, Starboard is Right.

When the new patient was settled comfortably on the couch, the psychiatrist began his therapy session. "I'm not aware of your problem," the doctor said. "So perhaps, you should start at the very beginning." "Of course," replied the patient.

"Mr. and Mrs. Dabney request the pleasure of Captain Black's company at dinner on the 16th of March." She was somewhat dismayed to receive the enthusiastic reply: "With the exception of four men on leave, and two sick, Captain Black's company accept with much pleasure your invitation to dinner on the 16th of March. There are 97 of us in my company." ___________________________________________________ The waitress was waiting as patiently as she could while John was dawdling over the breakfast menu.

The following conversation took place one morning between a wife and her now ex-husband. They were discussing government cost cuts that they recently heard about in the paper. "Honey," his wife said, while reading the newspaper, "it looks like our government is going to cut overhead and trim down the military forces. They are going to retire six over- aged destroyers." To which the husband replies, "Oh...I'm sorry to hear your mother will be out of work." ___________________________________________________
