Invention is the mother of necessity. --- Thorstein Veblen (1857 - 1929) ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A guy was setting on his porch, when a young man walked up with a pad and pencil in his hand. "What are you selling young man?" the guy asked. "I'm not selling anything," the young man said. "I'm the Census Taker." "The what?" the man asked. "A Census Taker. We are trying to find out how many people are in the United States." "Well," the man said, "you're wasting your time with me, I lost track of that number ages ago!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Fresh out of Army parachute school, I was about to make the first jump with my new outfit, the elite 82nd Airborne Division and I was scared. I had heard the stories about rookie jumpers who had been summarily banished from the division when their nerve failed. As soon as the green light came on, the jump master screamed, "Stand up!" but my body wouldn't obey. Then the veteran next to me came to my rescue. A look of utter contempt on his face, he took the action that enabled me to rise: he unsnapped my seat belt. ______________________________________________________ Hungry Man Dinner Tonight _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Braulio Mata, 31, Jose Garcia, 44, Ramon Aracena Alfe, 47, Dionell Duarte Hernandez,32, Yarly Mendoza-Delorbe, 20 ARDSLEY, Westchester County, New York DEA Targets Alleged Drug Mill, Walks Out with Enough Drugs To Kill 2 Million People A law enforcement raid of a residential home in Westchester County, New York, on Friday resulted in the seizure of enough fentanyl to kill about 2 million people, ABC News reported. The Drug Enforcement Agency’s Tactical Diversion Squad and local police “executed a search warrant” in the home, which authorities believe functioned as “an elaborate heroin and fentanyl mill,” according to News 12 Westchester. Law enforcement discovered 6 kilos of heroin and 5 kilos of fentanyl. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says fentanyl, a synthetic opioid, is “50 times more potent than heroin and 100 times more potent than morphine.” entanyl is often added to heroin, cocaine and counterfeit prescription pills without the user’s knowledge, leading to overdose deaths. The suspects arrested in the raid included Braulio Mata, Jose Garcia, Ramon Aracena Alfe, Dionell Duarte Hernandez and Yarly Mendoza-Delorbe, officials told WABC. “The five face charges ranging from conspiracy and possession of heroin and fentanyl to resisting arrest,” News 12 said. The home’s landlord told WABC he rented the house in December to a Bronx couple. The landlord claimed he had no idea about any alleged illegal activity. Neighbors told News 12 the area is normally quiet, and they were surprised to hear about the alleged drug mill. “However, they say they did notice cars coming and going,” News 12 reported. “The fentanyl alone has the potency to kill nearly over two million people,” said Ray Donovan, special agent in charge of the DEA’s New York division, according to ABC News. “I commend the men and women in the Task Force and Tactical Diversion Squad for their quick and efficient investigation into this organization and their diligence to the safety of the residents living nearby,” Donovan said. The “raid was conducted by a task force that included the DEA, Westchester County police, Orangetown police, the Rockland County Sheriff’s Office, Yonkers police, and the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department,” ABC News noted.
>From Gyppo Dear Webby. Re Hank who has lost his browser passwords and has to keep signing in. It may be that he has recently started using CCleaner. If it's still on the default settings it will wipe all his cookies and he'll have to re-enter passwords each time. No problem to re-enter if you only visit a few password protected sites, but a bummer if you have a whole raft of them suddenly acting as if they've never seen you before. Gyppo From: Ann Re: Anti Virus Dear DearWebby I have been running AVG free addition and you likely know they now want us to pay $55.00 Us for it...If I am going to pay, and I'm willing to pay, can you tell me the best protection to pay for? Is the new AGV worth the price ? Thanks, as always for your excellant advice...I can't "click on" with out Hugs Ann Dear Ann I use MalwareBytes on all Webby machines. It takes care of any and all Malware. Aside from that I just use an ancient FREE Spybot0Search&Destroy, about once every second year. I don't like the new version, but the ancient version is just fine. That's it. Nothing else. Anything else just slows things down. Have Fun! DearWebby

After the service a woman went to the preacher, "Pastor, I hope you don't take it personal that my husband walked out during your sermon." "Oh, I'm so glad you told me that, because it upset me terribly," said the preacher. "What caused him to leave, if I may ask?" "Oh he's walked in his sleep since he was a child."

A burglar broke into the house of a Quaker in the middle of the night and started to rob it. The Quaker heard the noise and went downstairs with his shotgun. When he found the burglar he pointed his gun at him and said most gently, "Friend, I mean thee no harm, but thou standest where I am about to shoot!" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Mending Holes in Screens If you have a hole in a screen door or window screen, you can mend it just like you mend a piece of clothing. Just stitch the hole shut using fine nylon thread or wire that matches the color of the screen. If it is too big to repair, you can replace the entire screen. ____________________________________________________
___________________________________________________ A guy is real drunk and gets home real late. Trying to avoid the little woman, he parks a block away from his home. He takes off his shoes as he walks up the stairs, careful not to make a noise. He quietly opens the door and tiptoes into the room, when BAM, he gets hit with a cast iron frying pan. Telling the story to a friend the next day at the local watering hole, his best friend sadly shakes his head and says: "Boy are you ignert! Now here's how I do it. When I get rip roaring drunk I go borry my buds low rider Harley and go screamin up and down my block a couple of times a hootin and a hollerin. I take the Harley raht up on the porch and then start screamin and a cussin. I slam open the door and scream, 'Hohney, Ah'm home! Let's get it on!' And you know what's amazin'? My wife is always sound asleep!!!" ___________________________________________________ "Get this," said the bloke to his mates. "Last night while I was down the pub with you guys, a burglar broke into my house." "Did he get anything?" his mates asked. "Yeah, a broken jaw, six teeth knocked out, and a pair of broken nuts. My wife thought it was me coming home drunk." ___________________________________________________

When the store manager returned from lunch, he noticed his clerk's hand was bandaged, but before he could ask about the bandage, the clerk said he had some very good news for him. "Guess what, sir?" the clerk said. "I finally sold that terrible, ugly suit we've had so long!" "Do you mean that repulsive pink-and-blue double-breasted thing?" the manager asked. "That's the one!" "That's great!" the manager cried, "I thought we'd never get rid of that monstrosity! That had to be the ugliest suit we've ever had! But tell me. Why is your hand bandaged?" "Oh," the clerk replied, "after I sold the guy that suit, his seeing-eye guide dog bit me." ___________________________________________________
