I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be. --- Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001) Perpetual devotion to what a man calls his business, is only to be sustained by perpetual neglect of many other things. --- Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 - 1894) ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin 5, and Ryan 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. "If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, 'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.' Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ It was just another day at the DMV. I had taken a woman out on her driving test when a police cruiser came up behind us--sirens wailing, lights flashing. "Was I speeding?" she asked the officer, after both cars pulled over. "No," said the officer. "But you are driving a stolen vehicle." Smiling awkwardly, the woman turned to me. "Does this mean I failed my test?" ______________________________________________________ The patrol bears are hibernating, but the wall is sold. _____________________________________________________

From: Lucille Re: Adware Dear DearWebby, I have run spybot twice. In fact, about two minutes ago, it congratulated me for not harboring threats. I got on the web, and sure enough, crap is still popping up and interrupting the stuff I want to read. Any ideas? Lucille Dear Lucille, Stuff that you agreed to suffer in lieu of cash, may not be removed by Spybot-Search & Destroy. If you agreed to it, and it was mentioned on page 74 of the small print, then automatic programs like Spybot may not remove it in a wholesale manner. That's what the judge said. Also keep in mind that, whatever you got popping, might not be spyware at all. Just because it is being a nuisance, that does not mean it is reporting what size bra you bought on eBay or Victoria's Secret. It could be ad-ware or mal-ware or a virus infection, or it could be "in lieu of" crap. Spybot-Search & Destroy goes after spyware. That's all. It doesn't do laundry or vacuuming or anything else. Malwarebytes might be able to kill that ad ware, but they too have to tread very carefully when it comes to wholesale removal of "in lieu" crap. Pinko judges side with the poor, hard done by ***holes, who foist that stuff on you. If Malwarebytes doesn't do it, you will probably have to get some neighborhood wiz kid to go after it. There ARE programs that help in that, but they would just frustrate you and you would wind up heaving the computer out the window. Programs like "Hijack This!" are effective tools, but only for advanced white- hat hackers, who have spent serious time reading instructions. Have FUN! DearWebby

While carpenters were working outside the old house I had just bought, I busied myself with indoor cleaning. I had just finished washing the floor when one of the workmen asked to use the bathroom. With dismay I looked from his muddy boots to my newly scrubbed floors. "Just a minute," I said, thinking of a quick solution. "I'll put down newspapers." "It's all right, lady," he responded. "I'm already trained."

>From Anna My husband and I had to have the garage door repaired. The Sears repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a "large" enough motor on the opener. I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one Sears made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower. He shook his head and said, "Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower." I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4. He said, "NO, it's not. Four is larger than two." We haven't used Sears repair since. ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Find Your Parked Car Take a moment to mark down your parking spot number or row on a piece of paper. If there is no row or spot number, just count the spaces and rows yourself as you walk from your car to your destination. Also, note what entrance you use so you can leave through the same door. ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ A farmer runs into the pastor of his church after missing the morning service. "I'm sorry I missed you this morning", the pastor says. "Well, Rev'rund", the farmer says,"I had some hay to put up before the rain came. I figured it was better to sit on a bale of dry hay thinking about God than to sit in church thinking about wet hay." ___________________________________________________ When I went with my stepdaughter to visit a prestigious university, our student guide pointed out the nationally ranked library and state-of-the-art science facilities. She told us that the professors were the best in the world, and she recommended my stepdaughter apply early to improve her chances for admission. "We get so many applicants," she boasted, "because of the stature of the school." After the tour I asked our guide, "So, why did you choose this school?" "Oh," she replied matter-of-factly, "Since my boyfriend graduated here he works at the McDonalds across the parking lot." ___________________________________________________

A tornado hit a Kansas farmhouse just before dawn one morning. It tore off the roof, and picked up the bed on which the farmer and his wife slept were sleeping. By some miracle, the cyclone set them down unharmed the next county over. The wife was sobbing uncontrollably. "Don't be scared, Mary," her husband said. "We're not hurt." Mary continued to cry. "I'm not scared," she said between sobs. "I'm happy... this is the first time in 14 years we've been out together." ___________________________________________________
