Literature is an occupation in which you have to keep proving your talent to people who have none. --- Jules Renard (1864 - 1910) Either the United States will destroy ignorance or ignorance will destroy the United States. --- W.E.B. Du Bois, Speech at Harpers Ferry, Virginia, August 1906 ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A clergyman was walking down the street when he came upon a group of about a dozen boys, all of them between 10 and 12 years of age. The group surrounded a dog. Concerned the boys were hurting the dog, he went over and asked, "What are you doing with that dog?" One of the boys replied, "This dog is just an old neighborhood stray. We all want him, but only one of us can take him home. So we've decided that whichever one of us can tell the biggest lie will get to keep the dog." The reverend was taken aback. "You boys shouldn't be having a contest telling lies!" he exclaimed. He then launched into a 10- minute sermon against lying, beginning, "Don't you boys know it's a sin to lie?" and ending with, "Why, when I was your age, I never told a lie." There was dead silence for about a minute. Just as the reverend was beginning to think he'd gotten through to them, the smallest boy gave a deep sigh and said, "All right, the Rev wins the dog." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ An old lady is walking around in a supermarket calling out, "Crisco, Crisssssssco!" Soon a store! clerk approaches and says, "Lady, the Crisco is in aisle D." The old lady replies, "Oh, I'm not looking for the cooking stuff. I'm calling my husband." The clerk is astonished. "Your husband's name is Crisco?" The old lady answers, "Oh no, no, no. I only call him that when we're out in public." "I see," said the clerk. "What do you call him at home?" "Lard Ass." ______________________________________________________ "God's Hands Bridge" in Vietnam. When we think of Vietnam we usually think of Vietcong and Communists.

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Christopher Larson, 33, Holiday, Florida Drunk driver tries to dance his way out of an arrest Christopher Larson, 33, was confronted by a police deputy in Holiday, Florida who found him sleeping behind the wheel of his running truck with his foot on the brake. Larson appears to bust out some fancy dance moves to evade arrest – but needless to say, the deputy was not impressed. According to police, Larson was found to have had a .28 blood alcohol content (BAC), which is triple the legal limit in Florida, which is .08. When the officer found Larson asleep behind the wheel, he knocked on the window and shouted for some time before he finally woke up, according to Fox 13. At that time, Larson seemed disorientated and waved to the police officer, the arrest report says. When Larson got out of his truck, he did not realize that it was still running and it began to roll forward. The officer was able to jump in just in time to stop it from hitting a gate it was idling in front of. The deputy administered a field sobriety test and asked Larson to complete some simple tasks to demonstrate his motor control – but instead Larson busted a couple moves. ‘This gentleman started to not take it seriously. He started dancing and while some citizens may find that funny, we don’t at the sheriff’s office. When asked to walk a straight line, Larson begins side-stepping and bouncing in the manner of a man who is unaware he is about to be taken to jail. The deputy asks Larson if he is ‘complete with the exercise,’ but he just mumbles and continues his shuffle. He was eventually arrested and told the deputy that he thought he was in Clearwater, Florida – not Holiday. Larson later spoke with Fox 13 and said he would not call what he did in the video dancing and would not comment on the arrest.
From: Charles Re: Cookies and Passwords Dear DearWebby, Every time I delete the cookies, all my passwords are gone. Is there a way around that ? Charles Dear Charles That is a safety feature that allows you to clean the passwords from the auto-complete if you have to go away from your machine or go on holidays. Just get yourself a little prayer book and write your passwords into that. Burglars or anybody trying to break into your machine are unlikely to even look at your little prayer book. For really high security leave off the last two letters from every password. By having the first part, you will easily enough remember the last two letters. I used to use RoboForm for many years. Then they stole all my passwords, and got promptly nuked off all of my machines. Since then I use DashLane Have Fun! DearWebby
