"Everybody else is relatively sober by comparison" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Constantine Xethalis, PORT HURON, Michigan. Man trying to transport meth in Canada busted when navigation takes him to Port Huron bridge A man who was allegedly attempting to transport meth from Montreal to Calgary was busted when his iPhone navigation took him to a border checkpoint - Port Huron's Blue Water Bridge. U.S. Customs and Border Protection inspected a Canadian vehicle at the bridge on Wednesday, driven by Constantine Xethalis. Two others were also in the vehicle, probably to ensure that he did not sell the dope along the way. After they were unable to provide proof of citizenship, the vehicle was searched. Officers found approximately 10 pounds of meth in tablet form. Xethalis told police he has a $2,000 gambling debt. In exchange for waiving the debt, he agreed to transport "something" to Calgary. He said he was also asked to drive two others from Toronto to Calgary. Xethalis made the pickups in Toronto. The group then used navigation to get to Calgary, according to the criminal complaint. The navigation guided them to the Blue Water Bridge. Officers believe there is probably cause Xethalis did knowingly and unlawfully possess with the intent to distribute approximately 4.4 kilos of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of meth. He will face charges. Xethalis has been charged with possession with intent to distribute controlled substances and importation of a schedule I controlled substance.
From: Wanda Re: Spam Dear DearWebby My spam is up to over two hundred per day. I know you keep telling me to quit whining and get Mailwasher, but I don't have time to learn how to make the filters that you keep talking about. Is there ANY other way to stop spam? Wanda Dear Wanda Yes, there are other ways. Two of them: 1) Rent more senators than the spammers did, and get them to stop protecting spammers and put in some effective laws against spam or 2) Teach some members of the militant wings of the Hells Angels or the Klu-Klux-Klan to become web literate and wait for their reaction to spam. If those alternatives are a bit beyond your budget, conquer your fear of filters and try MailWasher! Once you see how easy it actually is to make filters, you will be kicking yourself for not doing it sooner. It is so easy that I doubt you will ever bother to read the instructions. Because I have business addresses that I can not change, and because I have had them the same for dozens of years, I get a LOT of spam and average 1500 pieces of mail per day. 93% of that is spam. I would go totally nuts trying to deal with that by hand. Instead, MailWasher makes me smile every morning when it shows just a few emails but says in the status line something like: ... mails not shown in list. I hit F6, and ... pieces of spam get flushed to hell, unread, and without even having been shown in the list. There is no other computer program that makes me smile as much. Just take that first step, click on the Mailwasher button, and get it. Have Fun! DearWebby

"St. Patrick's Day Engagement" An Irishman, by the name of O'Mally proposed to his girl on St. Patrick's Day. He gave her a ring with a synthetic diamond. The excited young lass showed it to her father, a jeweler. He took a close look at it and saw it wasn't real. The young lass on learning it wasn't real returned to her future husband. She protested vehemently about his cheapness. "It was in honor of St. Patrick's Day," he smiled. "I gave you a sham rock." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Recycling Used Paint Thinner You don't need to discard paint thinner that has been used for cleaning paint brushes. Put used paint thinner into a glass or metal container with a tight fitting lid. The paint particles will sink to the bottom leaving you with clear paint thinner towards the top. Just pour off the clear paint thinner and discard the paint particles. Before disposing of any paint, even paint particles, check with your local waste management to find out the correct way to dispose of your paint. Pouring it over obnoxious weeds in the driveway often annoys them, but rarely kills them. Thriftyfun.com

___________________________________________________ Old man Murphy had worked down at the brewery for years, but one day he just wasn't paying attention and he tripped on the walkway and fell over into the beer vat and drowned. The foreman thought it should be his job to inform the widow Murphy of her old man's death. He showed up at the front door and rang the bell. When she came to the door, he said, "I'm sorry to tell you, but your poor husband passed away at work today when he fell into the vat and drowned." She wept and covered her face with her apron and after a time, between sobs, she asked, "Tell me, did he suffer?" "Knowing Pat Murphy like I do, I don't think so," said the foreman, "He got out three times to go to the men's room." ___________________________________________________ Maureen called the police. "My next door neighbor is exposing himself. Oh my," she continued, "he's just standing there, big as you please, taking a shower with his window shades up!" The squad car arrived immediately to catch the evil culprit in the act. She led the cop into her bedroom and pointed out her window. "See what I mean, officer." The policeman scratched his head and said, "Ma'am, I can only see the top of his head." Maureen replied, "Crazy fool, just put a chair on that dresser over there and stand on that! ___________________________________________________

The CIA lost track of one of its operatives, and so calls in one of their top spy hunters. The CIA boss says, "All I can tell you is that his name is Murphy and that he's somewhere in Ireland. If you think you've located him, tell him the code words,'The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning.' If it's really him, he'll answer, 'Yes, and for mist at noon as well.'" So the spy hunter goes to Ireland and stops in the first bar he sees. He says to the bartender, "Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for a guy named Murphy." The bartender replies, "You're going to have to be more specific because, around here, there are lots of guys named Murphy. There's Murphy the Baker, who runs the pastry shop on the next block. There's Murphy the Banker, across the street. There's Murphy the Plumber next door. And, as a matter of fact, my name is Murphy, too." Hearing this, the spy hunter figures he might as well try the code words on bartender, so he says, "The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning." The bartender replies, "Oh, you're looking for Murphy the Spy. He lives on 24 East Broadmoor in Dublin, on the second floor. But,.... from what I hear he's vacationing in Hawaii right now. You'll have to ask Murphy the travel agent to get the phone number of the hotel he's staying at. ___________________________________________________
