After a while, the priest turned to the rabbi and asked, "Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?" The rabbi responded, "Yes, that is still one of our laws." The priest then asked, "Have you ever eaten pork?" To which the rabbi replied, "Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to temptation and tasted a ham sandwich." The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading. A while later, the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest, "Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?" The priest replied, "Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith." The rabbi then asked him, "Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?" The priest replied, "Yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke with my faith." The rabbi nodded understandingly and remained silent, thinking, for about five minutes. Finally, the rabbi said, "Beats the hell out of a ham sandwich, doesn't it? _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roland for this: Washing Clothes Recipe imagine having a recipe for this ! ! !

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dave Toliver, East St Louis Illinois Port Richey mayor shot at deputies serving warrant for illegal medical practice The mayor of Port Richey, Florida has been arrested after deputies say he fired shots at law enforcement officers who were trying to serve a search warrant at his home Thursday. Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco compared the alleged crimes of the 68-year-old mayor, Dale Glen Massad, with those of shamed former D.C. mayor Marion Barry. Now, county and state officials are investigating the shooting as well as a possible illegal medical practice Massad was allegedly running from his Port Richey home. It started early Thursday morning when Pasco County Sheriff's Office SWAT officers showed up at the home, located at 8221 Hayward Lane. They were there to serve a warrant related to allegations Massad was still practicing medicine despite having his medical license revoked in 1992, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. FDLE said One medical procedure he allegedly performed sent the patient to the hospital. When SWAT arrived, the sheriff's office said they “announced their presence” and tried to enter. That’s when bullets flew toward the SWAT members. Deputies said they did not return fire. There were no injuries and Massad was taken into custody. Sheriff Nocco said during a press conference Thursday that Massad may face multiple charges of attempted homicide against law enforcement officials. "He's lucky he's not dead," Nocco said. "Every day those members put their lives on the line. They're lucky to go home." Nocco said there is a suspicion that Massad was under the influence of drugs at the time of the shooting and made comments to officers about not going back to jail. "When somebody says 'I'm not going back to jail' that either means it's going to be a shootout, they're either going to flee from us somehow...or possibly suicide by cop," Nocco said. "He's the one who made the decision to shoot [at] us. He's the one who is going to jail." It's not the first time Massad was arrested. In August 2018, Massad was arrested on a domestic battery charge.
From: Richi Re: Found browser that works Hi webby ,i finally came accross a broswer that works, after d/l and uninstalling various ones,i d/l opera browser and went to see if it would open up links when i clicked on them and sure enough this one did.its so weird how the google browser was acting like that maybe there was a glitch in it but it was strange it was doing that after using it for so long..i added my bookmarks to it. do you think it would be okay to uninstall the other one?tyvm for all of your help.its gr8tly appreciated Richi Dear Richi That is why I suggested UNinstalling your browsers and trying that list of browsers, in the hope, that your resident hijacker did not have power over at least one of the browsers. Opera is actually made for Mac machines, but it works well enough on Windows. Opera has much better font rendering and is the preferred browser for reading large text documents. Easist on the eyes! So, now you know that the problem is due to a resident hijacker. There are lots of programs on the net for getting rid of hijackers, most of them free. Pick one that you like, and run it to clean up your machine. Hijackers are NOT viruses, because they don't propagate on their own. You get them as payload on unsavory stuff. Run Malwarebytes! It may clean that Hijacker, even though it is not a virus. Try it anyway. You probably have other bad shit on the machine too. A popular anti Hijacker program is HijackThis! It is a bit tedious to run, but very thorough. You get it at If you don't like it, there are plenty of other anti-Hijackers on the net. The easiest is checking browser extensions and dumping any, that you don't absolutely need. Have Fun! DearWebby

Two bored casino dealers are waiting at the craps table. A very attractive blonde woman from Louisiana arrived ....and bet twenty-thousand dollars ($20,000) on a single roll of the dice. She said, 'I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I play topless.' With that, she stripped to the waist; rolled the dice; and yelled, 'Come on, baby.... Southern Girl needs new clothes!' As the dice came to a stop, she jumped up-and-down... and squealed... 'YES! YES! I WON ! I WON !' She hugged each of the dealers.. and then picked up her winnings and her clothes, and quickly departed. The dealers stared at each other dumfounded. Finally, one of them asked, 'What did she roll?' The other answered, 'I don't know... I thought you were watching.' Moral of this story --- Not all Southerners are stupid. Not all blondes are dumb. But, all men ..... are men.

Oh I get it... like humor... but different. ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Keeping Batteries Fresh To prevent batteries from wearing down if a flashlight is accidentally nudged on while you're traveling, put the flashlight batteries in backwards or don't put them in the flashlight at all until needed. Instead of putting batteries in backwards, just put a bit of masking tape over the end of one battery. Leave the tape sticking out as a handle to extract the "locked" battery. Keep in mind that the jokers at Security like turning devices on to see if they are real, but often forget to turn them off again. You have all heard of razors and vibrators humming and the owner having to open the suitcase and turn them off, while everybody else was chuckling or laughing. It happened to my nephew too. Have FUN!

Thanks to Cookie for sending this picture: Magic Tap in Cadiz, Spain I was about 6 years old when I saw a magic tap for my first time. It was at some trade show and a brewery used it as an attention getting gag. The man at the booth delighted in being sadistic and not telling me how it worked. The Magic Tap was in a big aquarium style glass showcase, that had an electrical cord going to it. Since I was becoming a pest with my insistent questioning, dad dragged me on to the other displays. Well, a while later I circled back, checked where that electrical cord went. It ws a long extension cord that snaked along and behind quite a few booths all the way to the end wall. Naturally I unplugged it. The Magic Tap flow stopped and revealed a pipe that had been hidden by the flow. Simple. Because I was mad at the bozo who had refused to tell me, I left the cord unplugged and scurried away. ___________________________________________________
