"How romantic!" she thought. Two-and-a-half hours later, she was still waiting for dinner to be served. She tiptoed to the kitchen and found it a colossal mess.Her harried husband, removing something indescribable from the smoking oven, saw her in the doorway. "Almost ready!" he vowed.

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jose Lugo, 35, Luis Jimenez, 32, Texas City, Texas Texas grandma defends herself from machete-wielding clown masked robbers with just grand child's scooter. A grandmother in Texas City daringly defended herself from masked attackers by utilizing her grandchild's scooter. Aretha Cardinal and her husband, Joseph Nelson, were reportedly approached by robbers in clown masks with red noses and orange hair while sitting in their parked truck in their driveway in the early morning on February 1. One assailant allegedly held a machete to Nelson's throat while making threats on his life. Nelson reportedly fought back and wrestled the blade from the attacker's grasp, while Cardinal then defended herself by grabbing her child's two-wheel scooter and hitting the alleged mugger with it until he relented, reports local outlet. Nelson remembers being shocked by the incident. couldn't believe what was happening," Nelson said to ABC13 of Houston, Texas. "He reached his hand through the window, put it on my throat like this and I'm like 'Dude, you serious, you trying to rob me with a machete?' Cardinal then pursued the men with the scooter as her weapon, hitting them and their car with it and even breaking a window until they drove away, according to Click2Houston.com. Cardinal recalled her stunning defense. "Any weapon is good for me if I can get you off me and my husband, that's what I'm going to do. I used the scooter, broke it in half," said Cardinal. The couple's daughter called the police shortly thereafter, according to The Epoch Times. The robbers must have gotten nicely tenderized since gramma busted the scooter on their heads. Good for Gramma! The aggressors have been identified by police as Luis Jimenez, 32, and Jose Lugo, 35. They have since been charged with aggravated robbery. The two are now being held at the Galveston County Jail. Bond was set at $100,000 for each of them.
From: Harold Re: UV filter for digital cameras Dear DearWebby, I read that digital cameras don't need UV filters even on bright days. Is that true? Harold Dear Harold While it is true that you probably won't be able to tell the difference in the resulting picture, with a good camera I still recommend UV filters. They are cheap, since they are just plain window glass, but they protect your expensive lens from dust and scratches. Since the UV filter is just regular glass, you can clean it with anything without worrying about delicate lens coatings. That alone is worth the $3 - $5 for the UV filter. If you have a UV filter from a previous camera, and it is a bit too big, you can just glue it to the lens barrel. Regular crazy-glue applied with a tooth pick works fine. Have FUN! DearWebby

Two doctors and an HMO manager are killed in a train wreck and line up at the Pearly Gates for admission to heaven. Saint Peter asks them to identify themselves. One doctor steps forward and says, "I was a pediatric spine surgeon. I helped hundreds of kids overcome their deformities." Saint Peter says, "Enter." The other doctor says, "I was a psychiatrist. I helped rehabilitate thousands of people." Saint Peter nods and invites him into heaven. The third applicant steps forward and says, "I was an HMO manager. I helped countless people get cost-effective health care." Saint Peter tells him, "You can come in, too." As the HMO manager walks by, Saint Peter adds, "But you can only stay for 3 days."

An eccentric philosophy professor gave a one question final exam after a semester dealing with a broad array of topics. The class was already seated and ready to go when the professor picked up his chair, plopped it on his desk and wrote on the board: "Using everything we have learned this semester, prove that this chair does not exist." Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in furious fashion. Some students wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting to refute the existence of the chair. One member of the class however, was up and finished in less than a minute. Weeks later when the grades were posted, the rest of the group wondered how he could have gotten an A when he had barely written anything at all. His answer consisted of two words: "What chair?" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Frugal Toys - Cardboard Boxes Use small and large cardboard boxes to help your child make a playhouse, fort, or space ship.

___________________________________________________ Working as a computer instructor for an adult-education pro- gram at a community college, I am keenly aware of the gap in computer knowledge between my younger and older students. My observations were confirmed the day a new student walked into our library area and glanced at the encyclopedia volumes stacked on a bookshelf. "What are all these books?" he asked. Somewhat surprised, I replied that they were encyclopedias. "Really?" he said. Someone printed out the whole DVD?" ___________________________________________________ My little niece, Kelly, went with a neighbor girl to church for First Communion practice. The pastor has the children cup their hands, and when he gives them the "Host," in this case, a piece of bread, he says, "God be with you." Apparently this made quite an impression on my niece. She came home and told her mother to cup her hands and bend down. Kelly took a piece of bread from her sandwich, placed it in her mother's hands, and whispered, in her most angelic voice, "God will get you." ___________________________________________________
