Good Morning, !
Today is Tuesday, February 12

Today it warmed up to almost 20, MINUS 20. Yesterday, when I
brought the garbage out, it was -32. The kids at the school
across the street were on break, yelling and screeching and
running around just like in summer. It did not bother them one
bit, and some were stockpiling snow balls, in case a teacher came
outside. They had a good time.

Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person. --- Ethel Mumford ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A man who had just undergone a very complicated operation kept complaining about a bump on his head and a terrible headache. Since his operation had been an intestinal one, there was no earthly reason why he should be complaining of a headache. Finally his nurse, fearing that the man might be suffering from some post-operative shock, spoke to the doctor about it. The doctor assured the nurse, "Don't worry about a thing. He really does have a bump on his head. About halfway through the operation we ran out of gas and the anesthetic nurse had to bean him with the fire extinguisher." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ During jury selection for one trial, the judge asked potential Juror No. 12 if there was any reason he could not be a fair and impartial juror. "There may be," he replied. "Juror No. 1 is my ex-wife, and if we were on the same jury, I guarantee we would not be able to agree on anything." Both were excused. ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kerri Smith, 47, Dante Hedgepath York, Pennsylvania Naked woman chased man out of hotel and through traffic claiming ‘I’m not crazy Kerri Smith, 47, was arrested after she was seen chasing Dante Hedgepath out of a Super 8 Motel and across a street in York, Pennsylvania on Friday. According to authorities, Hedgepath said he got ‘freaked out’ and left the room – but Smith followed him, completely naked, through the lobby screaming for him to come back. Hedgepath later told police that he got a hotel room with Smith, but decided to leave after she began ‘acting crazy’ and saying they were going to ‘have kids and start a life together,’ according to the affidavit. Police found the pair in the hotel parking lot and immediately took Smith into custody in the back of their cruiser, according to CBS 21. Both Smith and Hedgepath had a strong ‘intoxicating odor’ on their breath, police said. Smith told police that ‘something inside me told me to go after him’ and she kept repeating ‘I love him’ and ‘I’m not crazy.’ Officers later found Hedgepath to be in posession of an open, half full bottle of Grey Goose cherry flavored vodka, marijuana, a silver metal grinder containing marijuana residue, and three pill bottles with assorted pills in them – prompting his arrest. He told police that he had a Medical Marijuana Card and claimed that he purchased the marijuana at a dispensary, but could not provide any proof of purchase. Both he and Smith were taken to a local jail where they were booked and a female Sheriff’s Deputy gave Smith a blanket, as well as some clothes to wear Smith was charged with indecent exposure, open lewdness, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness. Authorities did not specify the charges against Hedgepath. Both were released for processing and arraignment.
From: Claudia Re: Blocked by Microsoft Dear DearWebby, I know it is a scam that attacks and blocks the browser, preternding to be Microsoft. Microsoft attacks by replacing perfectly working stuff with awkward nuisances, but they don't block the browser and demand that I call their 1-800 number. I am using Chrome, my daughter uses FireFox, and the same crap happens on her computer. We are not networked, she lives downtown. So, how do I get out of that attack, and how do I prevent it happening again? Claudia Dear Claudia CTRL SHIFT ESC brings up the task manager. Kill all instances of Chrome. There will be one for each open tab. Yes, I know, that is stupid, and I have told them that a number of times. After you have killed enough Chrome tabs, it will crash and go away. Get some coffee. By the time you come back, all Chrome instances in the Task Manager should be gone. Restart Chrome. RESIST their offer to re-open the 57 tabs, that you had open. One or more of them would be the hacker attack. Once you have a fresh browser page open, Yes, Chrome steals your home page and pesters you with theirs. Just ignore that childish stunt. Hit CTRL H That gives you the browser History. Checkmark anything that has Microsoft in the subject, and also anything, you are no longer interested in. Hit the DELETE key and the ENTER key. Now your bowser is saved and the hacker attack is gone. That attack is NOT a file on your hard drive. It is on Google's Cloud drive and in the browser. MalwareBytes can only nuke bad stuff on your hard drive and in YOUR computer's memory. It's can't go clean Google's server farms in Mexifornia, or Firefox's server farms. If you are smart enough to have MalwareBytes, then check out the Malwarebytes browser extension beta for Chrome and Firefox and say goodbye to tech support scams and many other web threats! If you don't have MalwareBytes yet, get at least the free version! Here are the Extensions: For Google For FireFox The browser extension MAY work, if you don't have MalwarBytes, but don't expect free updates, if you haven't got it. Have FUN! DearWebby
