An Arizona woman dressed as a nun — and carrying a Bible on her lap — was busted trafficking $90,000 in the synthetic opioid drug fentanyl, according to police. Esther Gomez De Aguilar, 53, of Yuma was sporting a veil while driving with her husband when an officer pulled them over for a traffic violation in Eloy on Monday, Pinal County cops said. The cop, who unleashed a drug-sniffing dog, searched De Aguilar and found pounds of fentanyl powder and pills in her purse and stashed under her clothes, police said in a Facebook post. The couple was hauling a total of 8.5 pounds of fentanyl — enough to kill hundreds of people, cops said. “You can see they will use any means to conceal what they are doing,” Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb said in a Facebook post. “Fentanyl is extremely dangerous. All it takes is the equivalent of 4 to 5 grains the size of sand to kill you.” De Aguilar and her husband, Jose Aguilar Diaz, were charged with possession and transportation of narcotics for sale.

Both under Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer on the Index page there is a heading called "Saved Passwords". Unclick those and problem is solved. I have had problems with Amazon in the past and I do not save that password. Yes, it's a PIA to enter it each time but better that than getting hacked. Have a great weekend (lol) tom Thanks, Tom!

A woman went into a hardware store to purchase a bale of peat moss. She gave a personal check in payment and said to the clerk, "I suppose you will want some identification." He replied, without hesitation, "No ma'am, that won't be necessary." "How come?" asked the woman. "Crooks don't buy peat moss." answered the clerk.

Early in the Civil War, when the Union armies were suffering repeated defeats, Abraham Lincoln was discussing the war situation with his cabinet. "How many men do you estimate are in the Confederate army?" a cabinet member asked. "About a million and a half," said Lincoln. "That many?" said another member. "I thought the number was considerably less." "So did I," said Lincoln, "but every time one of our generals lose a battle, he insists that he was outnumbered three to one - and we have about 500,000 men." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Rain Checks If a store runs out of an item that is on sale, ask them for a rain check.

After years of his wife's pleading, the rich, good old boy finally went with her to her little local Church on Sunday morning. He was so moved by the preacher's sermon that on the way out he stopped to shake his hand. He said, "Reverend, that was the best damn sermon I ever did hear!" The Preacher replied, "Oh!! Why, thank you sir, but please, I'd appreciate it if you didn't use profanity in the Lord's house." "I'm sorry Reverend, but I can't help myself. It was such a damn good sermon, sir!" "PLEASE, I cannot have you behaving this way in Church!" "Okay Reverend, but I just wanted you to know that I thought it was so damn good, I put $5,000.00 in that there collection box."
