So one day he got an old hair dryer and covered it with gray duct tape so that it looked like a radar gun, then started pointing it at speeders. "People are slowing down, raising their hands at me apologetically," he says. "It's amazing how well it works." Fifth graders at his school later raised money to buy Rooks a real radar gun. Rooks remarked that it "looks just like a hair dryer." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Dear Internal Revenue Service: Enclosed You Will Please Find My 2008 Tax Return Showing That I Owe $3,407.00 In Taxes.

The suspect, Jordan Ponce, 19, approached a 25-year-old woman walking home Monday night in Antioch about 9:30 p.m., Metro Nashville Police said in a press release. He allegedly ran up behind her and grabbed at her purse. But when she wouldnít let go, the woman told police, he bashed her head against the building wall. Thatís when her 29-year-old husband reportedly heard her screams and raced to help. Authorities said Ponce fled the scene but was chased by the husband, who jumped over a fence and landed on top of the suspect. The pair struggled. Still, the relentless husband remained on his trail and a second fight ensued. The suspect hit the husband in the head, prompting him to take out his gun and fire. Police say the injured suspect, identified as Ponce, got into a silver car and fled the scene. Authorities later discovered that the vehicle he left in was stolen 90 minutes before the attempted robbery. It was located early Tuesday. A department spokesperson told Fox News on Tuesday that Ponce is in the hospital and being treated for wounds to his stomach and hands. The department spokesperson also said that while the investigation is ongoing, charges against Ponce are expected. She said she was not aware of any pending charges against the husband who pursued the suspect.
From: Mia Re: Hard drive space Dear DearWebby, Both of my computers, desktop and laptop, are getting very slow, even though I religiously refrained from installing any utilities or any frivolous programs. The only stuff that is not work related spreadsheets and docs is music and pictrues. I have at lest 2 GB space left on both machines, but a friend told me that the drives are too full. What do you suggest? Mia Dear Mia 2 GB of free space is not enough elbow room for Windows. Get yourself a 1 TB hard drive for $50 -$150, and a USB drive enclosure for $10 - $30. That gives you a portable file server that you can plug into either of your computers. It will show up as an extra hard drive, and when your computers are networked, you can access it from either machine. Then you can move all your music and graphics to that drive and use the original drives just for the operating system. Have FUN! DearWebby

A wife and her husband attended a very important business party thrown by her boss where the husband may have had one or two more than he should have. On the way home from the party, the woman said to her husband, "Have I ever told you how handsome and sexy and totally irresistible to all women you are?" "Why no," said the husband, deeply flattered. "Then what gave you that idea at the party?!" she screamed.

Tony, having his second son christened, was much concerned about getting the correct name on the birth certificate. "Will you please name the baby just as I give it to you?" "Certainly," answered the minister, "why shouldn't I?" "Well you see, it's like this," replied Tony. "When I told you I wanted to name my first boy Tom, you wrote on his birth certificate 'Thomas.' This boy I want to name Jack." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Chill Your Jello Mold Place your Jello mold in fridge to chill before adding the Jello mixture.

Friday's Shirk Report.
___________________________________________________ A lady had been exposed to strep and needed to visit the doctor's office just to have her throat swabbed for a culture. She sat in the waiting room for quite a while with her legs crossed, reading a magazine while other patients came and went. Suddenly her turn was called, but when she stood up to go in, she discovered her leg was "asleep". Not wanting to keep the nurse waiting, she limped and staggered toward the inner office door. She noticed one elderly lady nudging another who sat beside her, as the two of them sympathetically watched her painful progress . Two minutes later, her procedure completed and her leg back to normal, she walked easily back into the waiting room. As she strode past the two elderly ladies, she overheard one whisper triumphantly to the other, "See, Myrtle, I TOLD you he was a wonderful doctor!" ___________________________________________________ This woman and her son are in a nice restaurant. There's quite a bit of food left over, so the woman tells the waiter, "Please put the meat in a bag for the dog." The son jumps up, "Wow, Mom, are we getting a dog?" ___________________________________________________

Marvin was in the hospital. He was an old man. Anyway, there was this young nurse. Everytime she came in, she talked to him like a little child. She would say in a patronizing tone of voice "And how are we doing this morning?!" One day, Marvin had received breakfast, and pulled the juice off the tray, and put it on his stand. He had been given a Urine Bottle to fill. The juice was apple juice. You know where the juice went. The nurse came in and picked up the urine bottle. She looks at it. "It seems we are a little cloudy today..." At this, Marvin snatched the bottle out of her hand, pops off the top, and drank it down, saying, "Well, I'll run it through again, and maybe I can filter it better this time." ___________________________________________________
