Today in
2013 North Korea conducted its third underground nuclear
test. 
in 2017 North Korea conducted another ballistic missile
launch.

So what? Even though the left wing media rarely mentions it,
Japan routinely hauls 5 ton loads of supplies to the space
station. Precisely to the door. They have all kinds of
rocket capabilities, know how to make bombs, and could
easily unload the scrap from the broken powerplants as
bombs. The same goes for South Korea. Like Japan, they don't
brag about what kind of armament they have, but you can be
assured that it is more than shiploads of Subarus and
industrial robots and computers. 

If North Korea gets too uppity and does more than bragging
outside the bar, somebody will reset them back to the stone
age.

In the meantime, it is good, that they squander their meagre
resources on building nukes at 2 BILLION dollars each. That
keeps them broke.

The same goes for Iran.

Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Estibaliz Carranza, 38, Asten jail, Austria Dangerous female ‘Ice Cream Killer’ moved to all-male prison in Austria. Estibaliz Carranza, aka the “Ice Cream Killer,” is too cold- blooded for a female prison, was moved to a prison for men. Carranza, 38, who brutally murdered her husband and a lover in 2008 after they failed to get her pregnant, is being moved to a special center in Asten, Austria. Officials are citing the danger she poses as the reason. She killed both men, cut them up with a chainsaw and hid them in an ice cream freezer at the parlor she owned, masking the smell with air freshener, Metro reports. The Mexican-born-Spaniard will be housed at a facility currently holding 91 male prisoners, with 13 female inmates en route there. Also stationed at the new destination are 45 nurses, 18 therapists, four doctors and eight prison guards. The facility — featuring a lounge and TV area — allows for free movement and has single and double rooms, along with cooking amenities. Court psychologist Heidi Kastner, who testified during the earlier trial, said that Carranza was accountable for her actions and that she had a high chance of relapse, Metro writes. The psychologist had also suggested therapy would not work for the killer. In a joint statement, her lawyers, Rudolf Mayer and Werner Tomanek, said, “It is important that our client can finally be comprehensively treated.” Mayer and Tomanek are ultimately seeking to get Carranza moved to a prison in her native Spain. However, the inmate bears the burden of having to prove herself “cured.” ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Maryanne Re: Merging mail from different machines Dear Webby I replaced my old computer at year end, but kept using the old one for almost a month for mail. How can I pull that mail across to the new one without overwriting the mailboxes that I have there with the February stuff in it? Thanks Maryanne Dear Maryanne Go to the old machine and use your email program to rename the mailboxes that you want. For example rename "Recipes" to "Recipes-1". Then shut down the mail program on both machines and copy the Recipes-1" mailbox to the new computer, right beside where you find "Recipes". Most email programs have TWO files for each mailbox, for example IN.mbx and IN.toc . Some name them slightly different. You need both. When you start up the mail program, you will see both "Recipes" and "Recipes-1". Now you can just transfer the mails you want from one mailbox to another. Have FUN! DearWebby
Lisa reported for her final liberal arts examination, which consists of "yes/no" type questions. She took her seat in the examination hall, stared at the question paper for five minutes, and then in a fit of inspiration took her purse out, removed a coin and started tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet, Yes for Heads and No for Tails. Within half an hour she was finished with the exam, whereas the rest of the class was sweating it out. During the last few minutes, she began to desperately throw the coin, mutter and sweat. The moderator was a little confused, so he approached her and asked what she was doing. She said, "I finished the exam in half an hour, so I thought I would go back and recheck my answers."

When a couple arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up their car, they were told the keys had been locked in it. They went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver's side door. As the wife watched from the passenger side, she instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. "Hey," she announced to the technician, "it's open!" The mechanic said, "I know. I already got that side."

There is no way he would have made it home by seven." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ This one came back via Noella: Never bring plants into the house. Garden Grass Snakes also known as Garter Snakes (Thamnophissirtalis) can be dangerous. Yes, grass snakes, not rattlesnakes. Here's why. A couple in Sweetwater, Texas, had a lot of potted plants. During a recent cold spell, the wife was bringing a lot of them indoors to protect them from a possible freeze. It turned out that a little green garden grass snake was hidden in one of the plants and when it had warmed up, it slithered out and the wife saw it go under the sofa. She let out a very loud scream. The husband (who was taking a shower) ran out into the living room naked to see what the problem was, slipped with his wet feet on the vinyl floor and crashed into the big stereo. When he was upright again, she told him there was a snake under the sofa. He got down on the floor on his hands and knees to look for it. About that time the family dog came and cold-nosed him on the behind. He thought the snake had bitten him, so he screamed and fell over on the floor. His wife thought he had a heart attack, so she covered him up, told him to lie still and called an ambulance. The attendants rushed in, wouldn't listen to his protests and loaded him on the stretcher and started carrying him out. About that time the snake came out from under the sofa and the Emergency Medical Technician saw it and dropped his end of the stretcher. That's when the man broke his leg and why he was put into the hospital. The wife still had the problem of the snake in the house, so she called on a neighbor man. He volunteered to capture the snake. He armed himself with a rolled-up newspaper and began poking under the couch. Soon he decided it was gone and told the woman, who sat down on the sofa in relief. But while relaxing, her hand dangled in between the cushions, where she felt the snake wriggling around. She screamed and fainted, the snake rushed back under the sofa. The neighbor man, seeing her lying there passed out, tried to use CPR to revive her. The neighbor's wife, who had just returned from shopping at the grocery store, saw her husband's mouth on the woman's mouth and his right hand pumping on her ample left boob, slammed her husband in the back of the head with a bag of canned goods, knocking him out and cutting his scalp to a point where it needed 12 stitches. The noise woke the woman from her dead faint and she saw her neighbor lying on the floor with his wife bending over him, so she assumed that he had been bitten by the snake. She went to the kitchen and got a small bottle of whiskey, and began pouring it down the man's throat. By now the police had arrived. They saw the bloody and unconscious man, smelled the whiskey, and assumed that a drunken fight had occurred. They were about to arrest them all, when the women tried to explain how it all happened over a little green snake. The police called an ambulance, which took away the neighbor and his sobbing wife. The little snake again crawled out from under the sofa. One of the policemen drew his gun and fired at it. He missed the snake and hit the leg of the end table. The table fell over and the lamp on it shattered and as the bulb broke it started a fire in the drapes. The other policeman tried to beat out the flames, and fell through the window into the yard on top of the family dog who, startled, jumped out and raced into the street, where an oncoming car swerved to avoid it and smashed into the parked police car. Meanwhile, the burning drapes, were seen by the neighbors who called the fire department. The firemen had started raising the fire truck ladder when they were halfway down the street. The rising ladder tore out the overhead wires and put out the electricity and disconnected the telephones in a ten-square city block area (but they did get the house fire out). Time passed! Both men were discharged from the hospital, the house was repaired, the dog came home, the police acquired a new car, and all was right with their world. A while later they were watching TV and the weatherman announced a cold snap for that night. The wife asked her husband if he thought they should bring in their plants for the night. That's when he shot her. ______________________________________________________ Red Knobbed Hornbill, Indonesia From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Geneva Robinson, 51, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Oklahoma grandmother accused of dressing as witch to abuse kids pleaded guilty An Oklahoma City grandmother has pleaded guilty to abusing her 7-year-old granddaughter in numerous ways, including terrorizing her by dressing as a witch. On Thursday, 51-year-old Geneva Robinson admitted in court that she engaged in several felony counts of abuse on the girl. These included pinching her with pliers, fracturing her pubic bone with a kick, cutting off her hair while she slept and forcing her to sleep outside with the dogs. A 6-year-old child was also mentioned in the court affidavit, according to local station KFOR-TV. There were two other children in the family, but they were not mentioned in the court case. Robinson had custody of the four kids for about a year after the children’s parents split up, according to The Oklahoman newspaper. Robinson was arrested in October 2014 after she took the child to a hospital claiming she could not control the girl anymore. Police were called because the girl looked malnourished and had burns and bruises all over her body, according to KFOR. The victim’s ankles had cuts that were infected and her wrists “had the appearance of possibly being bound,” according to the police report. Prosecutors said that Robinson engaged in these acts of abuse while dressed as a witch named Nelda, The Oklahoman reported. Her 31-year-old boyfriend, Joshua Granger, reportedly would wear a demon costume and call himself Coogro. Granger pleaded guilty to one count for assisting and “causing mental injury” to the girl, according to The Associated Press. According to a court document obtained by The Oklahoman, the victim told a counselor that Nelda “goes into” her grandmother and makes her “do mean things,” and she said “Nelda eats bad kids.” Robinson told the court Thursday that she is being treated for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia while in jail and that she was treated for mental illness in the 1970s in Texas. Both Robinson and Granger will be sentenced March 28. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Eudora 7 suddenly has certificate problems Dear Webby I'm back with another problem.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Healthy Bean Soup By Judy Pariser S. [238 Posts, 907 Comments] We were snowed in today, so I made this soup to warm us up after shoveling. The original recipe required soaking the dried beans, and adding ingredients partway through the cooking. The slow cooker allowed me to put all the ingredients in, and go about my day. The soup is delicious, and the house smells divine! Leftovers freeze well for future busy days. Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 8 hours Total Time: 8 hours, 15 minutes Yield: 8-10 bowls Source: Adapted from Prevention Magazine Ingredients: 1 lb bag dried beans (Northern, pinto or black beans) 6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth 4 cups water 1 med onion, finely chopped 2 ribs celery, chopped 1 carrot, finely chopped 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 bay leaf 3 Tbsp tomato paste ˝ tsp salt ˝ tsp ground black pepper Steps: Rinse the beans in a colander. Chop the vegetables. Put everything into the slow cooker. Mix together. Add a bay leaf. Cook on low for about 8 hours. Remove the bay leaf. Eat as is, or use an immersion blender to blend to desired smoothness. Personally, I don't buy broth or stock. I just use a heaping teaaspoon of beef-vegetable or Minestrone soup mix from the Bulk Barn. Unlike store bought broth or stock, it does not have any phony taste enhancers in it. There is even a kosher sign on the bin. I am not religious, but that sign tells me that the ingredients are all inspected and OK'd by independent people, who are concerned about quality, not profits. While living in the Yukon I got used to add some chopped, wood-smoked bacon for the fat to balance the beans. It's not that cold here in Alberta, but I still like the flavor, that even a few small bits of bacon adds. Try the thick sliced, wood smoked Mennonite bacon. It is firm and dry, not like the liquid smoke dipped brand name bacon. You need a lot less because the flavor is much stronger. By the way, soaking the beans in cold water for an hour or more before you rinse them, is claimed to reduce the methane you produce. Have FUN! DearWebby

Good Morning, ,
Today is Friday, February 10
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!


Beatiful full moon out. The Chinook blew away the -30,
shook 8" of snow off the trees, blew half of that eastwards
across the prairies, and started to thaw what fell to the
ground. It gave it's name to the migyhtiest helicopter, and
it is quite obvious, why.

In a week, after the Chinook has crossed the prairies,
picked up moisture from the Great Lakes, and collided with
cold Atlantic air, it will be called "The Alberta Clipper"
and will dump onto Toronto and Chicago.

We call that area "The Far East". Left wingers and
politicians live there, nice and cozy with Alberta oil and
gas and taxes. The thought of them getting dumped on next
week does not grieve us at all.

In the meantime we enjoy the warm and rambunctious Chinook
and the very pretty moonshine on what's left of all the
snow. It is times like this when I wish I was not the only
one walking and enjoying the night.

Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Cheryl Ann Morris, 54, Alachua, Floriduh Drunk Florida woman drives into ditch, says she’s dead An Alachua woman drove drunkenly into a ditch Wednesday and told police she was dead, Florida Highway Patrol said. At about 5:26 p.m., Cheryl Ann Morris, 54, crashed her black Dodge Intrepid into a ditch at County Road 232 and Northwest 202nd Street, according to an incident report. When troopers asked her if she was injured, she said she was dead, according to the report. Morris told police a silver truck drove her off the road. Troopers noticed she slurred her words and kept repeating herself. One asked if Morris was wearing her seat belt, and she responded, “What, do I look stupid?” as she attempted to fasten it across her lap, according to the report. She was walked to an FHP car and put in the back seat, according to the report. When troopers searched the area, they found a small bottle of wine, which a witness said Morris had in her possession. Morris said she only drank two beers during the evening, according to the report. Morris performed poorly on field sobriety exercises and refused a breathalyzer test. Police arrested her on charges of driving under the influence and property damage. She was taken to the Alachua County Jail where she remains, as of press time, in lieu of a $15,100 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Me Re: Typical Mailwasher result Just to illustrate for those, who don't have MailWasher yet, here is a typical example.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Making Chocolate Dipped Wafer Cookies By lalala... [795 Posts, 103 Comments] These chocolate dipped wafer cookies would make a great gift for your Valentine this year. Ingredients: strawberry wafers white chocolate and chocolate Wilton's Candy Melts Candy Melts warmer, optional Valentine's sprinkles wax paper Steps: Melt Candy Melts according to package directions or in the warmer. NOTE: I recommend melting small batches as the wafers tend to leave crumbs in the chocolate. Brush off excess crumbs from the wafers. Dip the end of each wafer into the chocolate and gently shake to remove any excess. Lay them on the wax paper and sprinkle with festive sprinkles. Allow chocolate to harden. Enjoy! For dark, semi-sweet chocolate you can use Bakers Semi-Sweet chocolate chips and a bit of butter in a flat bottom bowl, heat it a minute in the microwave, stir it fast and put it onto the heating plate of your coffee maker to keep it hot. Then you can dip the wafers lengthwise with half of it immersed, flip them onto the wax paper dry side down, so that some of the chocolate streaks down towards the dry side. Chocolate addicts prefer that method! Have FUN! DearWebby

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by 22 year old Russian woman Belgorod, Russia Church cigarette stunt means jail for Russian woman A 21-year-old woman is jailed for deliberately provoking authorities. Her crime? She posted a photo of herself lighting a cigarette with a candle in a Russian Orthodox church in the city of Belgorod, reports the Moscow Times. For that, she has been charged with "insulting the feelings of religious believers," under a law that came about in 2013 in the wake of the stunts pulled by the feminist punk group Pussy Riot. She faces up to three years in prison, reports the London Times. Hers is not the only such case to generate headlines. A 22- year-old man posted a video of himself playing Pokémon Go in a church in Yekaterinburg after state television warned that such game-playing was a no-no. He, too, was charged under the 2013 law, and has been held since October. No trial dates appear to have been set in either case. Meanwhile in Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin gives a good example of proper behavior in church, as he lights a candle in the Lifegiving Trinity Church in Moscow. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Connie Re: Angelwinks going to wrong mailbox Dear Webby WHY DID YOU PEOPLE STOP SENDING ANGELWINKS TO MY IN BOX.

Moisha Rabinowitz in the late 1930s fled his native land of Germany. He sold all his assets and converted it to gold and then had 5 sets of solid gold false teeth made. When he arrived in New York the customs official was perplexed as to why anybody would have 5 sets of gold teeth. So Moisha explained. "We Orthodox Jews have two separate sets of dishes for meat products and dairy products but I am so kosher and religious I also have separate sets of teeth." The customs official shook his head and said, "Well that accounts for two sets of teeth. What about the other three?" Moisha then said "Vell us very religious Orthodox Jews use separate dishes for Passover, but I am so religious I have separate teeth, one for meat and one for dairy food. The customs official slapped his head and then said, "You must be a very religious man with separate teeth for food and dairy products and likewise for Passover. That accounts for four sets of teeth. What about the fifth set?" "Vell to tell you the truth, once in a while I like a ham sandwich."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Stubborn Locks If you have a lock that is not functioning well, spray it with some graphite lock spray. You can buy it at any hardware store. One popular brand is called Lock-Ease. In a pinch, you can try using some non-stick vegetable oil on both the lock and key. You can also try dipping your key in talcum powder and inserting it in the lock. Keep in mind that most locksmiths will charge you $20 more, if you have gunked up a lock with graphite, and tell you that the lock is beyond repair if you have used kitchen oil. Those remedies may be OK for large, oldfashioned locks that use simple gates to stop wrong keys from turning. If the key looks like a miniature flag pole with a jagged flag at the end, then it's safe to use that stuff, but you will still get charged extra for gunking it up and the lock requiring tedious cleaning. Never use those for modern tumbler locks with a key similar to a car key. Tumbler locks should never see anything thicker than WD40 penetrating oil, and even that is frowned upon, because it will trap dust. If you use penetrating oil once, you will have to keep using it once or twice a year until the lock has been taken out and all lubricants cleaned out. It is dust and grit and gunk that jam up a tumbler lock, not lack of lubrication. DearWebby

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Robert Gill, 68, San Antonio, Drug dealer whose life sentence was commuted by Obama arrested on new drug charges A 68-year-old San Antonio man whose life prison sentence was commuted by President Barack Obama is back in jail after authorities say he crashed his car into another vehicle while fleeing from officers following a drug deal. A federal magistrate judge on Friday ordered Robert Gill held without bail pending a hearing later this month. Gill was arrested in 1990 and sentenced to life for cocaine and heroin distribution conspiracy. While in prison, he studied law and petitioned the president for a second chance. Obama commuted Gill’s sentence in 2015. The San Antonio Express-News reports he’d been working as a paralegal at a San Antonio law firm. He’s now charged with possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine. If convicted, Gill faces a potential sentence with a mandatory minimum of five years, but could get up to 40. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Gladys Re: Monitor Frequency Dear Webby Should the monitor frequency be set to the same as the household electricity (60 cycles)?

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Mini Cheesy Heart Calzones By lalala... [795 Posts, 103 Comments] These mini heart shaped calzones are perfect for a Valentine's day party. They are easy to make and would be fun to make with your kids. Ingredients: canned pizza dough (thin crust) sliced mozzarella or Provolone egg white marinara sauce fork heart shaped cookie cutters (medium and small) flour rolling pin Steps: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Unroll canned pizza dough onto lightly floured cutting board. Flour other side of dough too. Using the medium heart cookie cutter, cut out as many pairs of hearts as possible. Remove excess dough from around the hearts. Set the excess dough aside. Using the small heart cookie cutter, cut out enough cheese hearts to fill each pair of dough hearts. Lay a cheese heart onto a dough heart, moisten the edges of the dough heart, and lay another dough heart on top. Use a fork to crimp the dough hearts together. Place the calzones onto a greased cookie sheet (or pizza stone). Brush the top of each calzone with egg white. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove any cheese that leaked out. Serve hot with a side of marinara sauce for dipping. Enjoy!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Pearl Moen, 19, Travis County, same county as the P***y Hat Judge Texas Stabbing A Stranger Was 'Absolutely Fantastic,' Teen Wrote In Diary A Texas teenager who admitted stabbing a stranger nearly two dozen times wrote in a diary that the attack gave her "a high unlike any other" and that she was "so proud" of herself. Pearl Moen, 19, "wanted to know what it would feel like to kill someone," District Attorney Margaret Moore said after Moen was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday for attempted murder. Moen, who the Travis County District Attorneys Office said had a history of drug abuse and "psychological issues," walked to a nearby Austin park the morning of Nov. 14, 2015, where a 23-year-old nurse was lying on a blanket. "All of the sudden she opens her eyes to someone stabbing her repeatedly," the victim’s father, who did not want to be identified, told Austins KXAN News. The nurse also asked not to be publicly named. Moen ran away and described the attack in her diary. "She screamed and grabbed at me, saying 'What the fuck?! Help! Leave!" the teen wrote, according to police. The victim, a labor and delivery nurse at a local hospital, was stabbed 21 times. She survived after multiple blood transfusions and treatment for a collapsed lung. "They thought I was going to die," the victim, who spent nearly a week in the hospital, told My Statesman. Aside from a vague description of the perpetrator a woman with "dark brown or black hair" the only clue found at the crime scene was a blood-splattered gold ring. Detectives said Moen described it in her diary. "I lost my other gold ring I’ve worn all my life on a chain around my neck as it was ripped off by a girl I was murdering," the entry reads. "Fate is weird." The attack, which authorities surmised was random, remained unsolved until Valentine’s Day 2016, when police responded to a domestic disturbance at Moen’s house. The teen’s mother reported her daughter had threatened her with a knife, police said. While investigating, Moen’s mother and boyfriend told officers Moen seemed to match a description of the stabbing suspect they’d seen in neighborhood flyers, according to court documents. Moens mother later discovered the teen’s diary, which she turned over to detectives. The entry about the stabbing, quoted in the arrest affidavit, reads: "I stabbed an innocent woman to death earlier today — technically yesterday since it’s 1 a.m. It was absolutely fantastic. Murder gives me a high unlike any other. It feels like this crisp unreality, flashing and sparkling, adrenaline and shock, fight or flight mode. How do I even go about describing it. The whole thing was unreal. I’m so proud of myself. I stabbed her like 20 times. Maybe more. I wasn’t counting. She screamed and grabbed at me, saying "What the fuck?! Help. Leave." … For now, I should explain why. Other than the fact that I’m a homicidal psychopath. I have a deep hatred towards people right now. … Yesterday I lost my other gold ring I’ve worn all my life on a chain around my neck as it was ripped off by a girl I was murdering. Fate is weird." The journal also contained a drawing of the crime scene, the affidavit says. The victim, who reportedly has permanent damage to several nerves and tendons, told KXAN News she was shocked when she learned of the diary entry. "I always thought she would walk around with guilt, but knowing she had this joy and this pride is very unsettling," the woman said. Same county as the P***y Hat judge Sarah Ekhardt.

A fifty year old gal was at home happily jumping on her bed and laughing with delight. Her husband watched her for a while and asks, "Do you have any idea how ridiculous you look? What's the matter with you?" The woman continues to bounce on the bed and says, "I don't care. I just came from having a mammogram and the doctor says I have the breasts of an 18 year-old." The husband said, "What did he say about your 56 year old ass?" "Oh, your name never came up," she replied laughing.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Rubbing Alcohol for Cleaning Hard Water Spots By Karen B. [1 Post, 1 Comment] I was having trouble getting water spots off my windows until my neighbor suggested using alcohol. I used 91% rubbing alcohol from the drugstore that I already had in the house and paper towels. I didn't even have to scrub. The spots came off like magic.

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Roland for this one: Three churches in town were overrun with squirrels. After much prayer, the elders of the first church determined that the animals were predestined to be there. Who were they to interfere with God's will? They did nothing, and the squirrels multiplied. The elders of the second church, deciding that they could not harm any of God's creatures, humanely trapped the squirrels and then set them free outside of town. Three days later the squirrels were back. It was only the third church that succeeded in keeping the squirrels away. The elders of this church simply baptized the squirrels, registered them as members of the church, and passed the collection plate. Now, they only see the squirrels on Christmas and Easter. ___________________________________________________

A well dressed lady was sitting in a fine restaurant one night. Waiting for her date as she was, she wanted to make sure everything was perfect. So, as she bends down in her chair to get the mirror from her purse, she accidentally farts quite loudly just as the waiter walks up. Sitting up straight, embarrassed and red faced, sure that everyone in the place heard her, she turns to the waiter and demands, "Stop that!" The waiter looks at her dryly and says, "Sure lady, which way did you fire it ?"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rev. O. Jermaine Simmons Sr., 36, Talahassee, Floriduh Pastor who preached ‘Integrity’ caught pants-down in bed with married woman A married pastor in Florida who recently chastised the media for dishonesty was caught having sex with a married mom, according to a police report. The Rev. O. Jermaine Simmons Sr., 36, ran naked from Claynisha Stephens’ Tallahassee apartment after her husband of seven years caught the two in bed together on Jan. 17, the police report said. The husband, Benjamin Stephens, chased after the pastor with a pistol, but police ? summoned by the wife ? found him first, hiding with no clothes behind a fence. Simmons, pastor at Jacob Chapel Baptist Church in Tallahassee, wrote a blog post just weeks ago titled, “Journalism is Dead.” He argued modern news reporting lacks honesty and integrity. “I can’t help but mourn the death of pure, untainted journalism,” Simmons wrote. Simmons also authored a 2016 book, I Need A Man, touted in a press release as “a fresh perspective on the issues of godly manhood and mentoring.” A photo included in a press kit announcing the release of a new book by Rev. O. Jermaine Simmons Sr. Tallahassee police said they learned of Simmons’ extramarital relationship when Stephens’ wife called 911. She told officers her husband grabbed a small handgun after he caught them in bed and “went out the door in search of Simmons.” “I’m going to shoot both of you,” Benjamin Stephens said, according to the police report. Benjamin Stephens was nowhere to be found when officers arrived. Police found Simmons hiding behind a nearby privacy fence. Simmons told officers he visited Claynisha Stephens that day to discuss “church matters.” One thing led to another and the meeting “took an inappropriate turn,” the police report quoted him as saying. Claynisha Stephens told officers she and her husband attend Simmons’ church. She acknowledged having sex with Simmons and said he bolted after her husband caught them in bed. She said her husband told her he’d considered shooting her, but decided not to “because of their son,” police said. Officers eventually tracked down Benjamin Stephens and found him in possession of Simmons’ clothes, wallet and car keys. He told officers he caught his wife and the pastor having sex in his oldest daughter’s bedroom, according to the police report. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rhonda Re: Phishing Dear Webby Is it true that some of those phishing sites can steal your passwords and bank information even if you don't click on anything ?

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Fixing Wallpaper Bubbles If you have a larger wallpaper bubble, bigger than quarter, cut an X into the bubble and carefully peel back each corner from the center of the X. Then apply some wallpaper paste to each corner and flatten them out with a damp sponge. For smaller bubbles, cut a slit into the bubble using a sharp utility knife. Then use a syringe to squirt some wall paper adhesive into the slit and smooth out the bubble.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jessica Pickett, 22, Columbus, Ohio Mom Claimed Daughter Was Kidnapped So Cops Would Find Her Car faster A woman in Columbus, Ohio, is facing charges for allegedly filing a false report of a missing child just so officers would find her stolen car faster. On Monday morning, Jessica Pickett’s 2004 silver Chevy Impala was stolen in front of her home while she was warming it up. She told police that she put her 4-year-old daughter into the car and went back into her home to get another kid. When she came back out, the vehicle was missing, according to WSAZ TV. Authorities issued an Amber Alert in Central Ohio to find the missing girl. The car was found about a mile away from where it was stolen, but no child was inside, according to WBNS TV. Bradley Stroud, 22, was charged with grand theft auto, but the girl wasn’t found until the 911 dispatcher got a call saying she was at her aunt’s house, according to WCMH TV. Columbus Police Sergeant Terry McConnell told the station that investigators determined she had been with the aunt since Sunday, long before the car was stolen. Officers questioned Pickett who allegedly admitted reporting that her daughter was missing so police would prioritize finding her car, according to WBNS TV. Pickett was charged with misdemeanor falsification and was issued a summons to appear in court. Her children are now in the custody of Franklin County Child Services, according to the station. Stroud appeared in court Tuesday and the judge set his bond at $50,000. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Angel Re: Avoiding raw directory listing Dear Webby How do I hide the raw directory listing that shows up on folders on my web site, that have only pictures in them?

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Fruity Pudding By katrine2706 I never knew how to make pudding until my sister-in-law gave me several packs of pudding mix from Germany. I had wondered how to cook it, but never really knew how, since the package directions are written in German. I didn't have the time to google search recipes, so I tried my best to make use of the pudding mix in my own way. The result looked and taste just like our traditional desert called "maja blanca". It tasted better than I expected. Ingredients: 1 can (300 gram) fruit cocktail, drained 1 pack vanilla pudding mix 1 can (270 ml) evaporated milk 1 cup water 1/4 cup sugar 1/3 cup grated cheese Steps: Mix milk, water and sugar together. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Divide the mixture into two. Use one part of the milk mixture to dilute 1 pack of vanilla pudding mix. Simmer the other part of milk mixture over medium heat. Continue stirring until desired consistency is achieved. Pour into container or you can use gelatine mold. Allow to cool for about 3 minutes. Stir the mixture until thick. Add in half of the fruit cocktail. Set aside the remaining half for the top. Top your pudding with remaining fruit cocktail and grated cheese. Chill in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours (do not put in the freezer). Serve.

"But," said the duffer, "since you're obviously much better than I, to even it a bit you have to spot me two 'gotchas'." The golf pro didn't know what a 'gotcha' was, but he went along with it. And off they went. Coming back to the 19th hole, the rest of the club members were amazed to see the golf pro paying the duffer $100. "What happened?" asked one of the members. "Well," said the pro, "I was teeing up for the first hole, and as I brought the club down, that jerk stuck his hand between my legs and grabbed my balls... then yelled 'Gotcha!' Have you ever tried to play 18 holes of golf, never knowing when or what the second 'gotcha' would be?" ___________________________________________________

Gillard allegedly told Havasu City Police Department that she told her boyfriend that she wanted to invite her new female friend over for the threesome, which she and her boyfriend “have always talked about doing”. However, according to Gillard, her boyfriend — whom she has been dating on-and-off since 2008 — “did not want to have a threesome because he wasn’t feeling well.” The pair began arguing before Gillard is alleged to have attacked her lover with a pair of scissors. While warding her off he got stabbed in the arm and abdomen. Police stated that the victim only suffered minor injuries. Gillard faces felony charges for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct with a weapon per domestic violence. It was Gilalrd who called the police after the victim locked her out of his home and accused him of beating her up. She got back into the property once and the physical altercation continued before she was locked out a second time. Gillard is now in custody at Mohave County Jail in Kingman, Arizona. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: How to get rid of AdAware? Dear Webby I am having a problem with the AdAware installer. I have purged my computer of every instance of AdAware that I can find. Every time I right click on an icon, the AdAware installer wants to install AdAware. I click cancel, then I have to continue pressing cancel before it gives up. Sometimes it will hang the computer. On searching the internet, it was suggested installing a context menu editor. Sounds good, but I hate to install a program to get rid of another program. What do you think? Thanks. Bill Dear Bill AdAware has been somewhere between a well known problem and a Bloody Nuisance for at least ten years. There are many un- install programs available on the net. It is almost a cottage industry! You also have to get rid of anything to do with Lavasoft. They will re-infect your computer. Do that first. UNinstall anything related to Lavasoft. Then use your Everything searcher and search for unwise in any directory related to Lavasoft or AdAware. Run that. It is an UNinstaller. Then use Everything to search for lavasoft adaware and each time, when it finds something, delete it. If you are one of the poor disadvantaged newbies, who vegetate in the dark without the Everything searcher, get it quickly at http://www.voidtools.com/ After that, dump any and all folders, that have lavasoft or adaware in the name. That should do the trick. The tiny Everything searcher program is most definitely a keeper. You will soon love it and find it as indispensable as a lot of us do. The first time you run it, it is a bit slow, while it catalogs all your drives. After that it will be blazingly fast, even with Terabyte external drives filled with sexy poultry and prayer pictures. Have FUN! DearWebby
>From Fran: I hate the idea of going under the knife. So I was very upset when the doctor hold me I needed a tonsillectomy. Later, the nurse and I were filling out an admission form. I tried to respond to the questions, but I was so nervous I couldn't speak. The nurse patted my hand and said, "Don't worry. This medical problem can easily be fixed, and it's not a dangerous procedure." "You're right. I'm being silly," I said, "Please continue." "Good," the nurse went on, "Now, do you have a living will? And who should we contact in case you don't wake up?"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Fight Grease With Grease By pho1608 [1 Post] Don't spend money on expensive de-greasers and don't inhale toxic ammonia. Take 1 part mineral or vegetable oil to 2 parts baking soda. This makes the perfect cleanser for greasy cupboards. With a little rubbing, this gets even the most gummy build-up. For greasy film on the oven hood, just drop some oil on a paper towel and wipe it clean. This technique is so effective, I now keep a spray bottle with mineral oil to clean the gucky grease.

______________________________________________________ Reported by Moe An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lacey Sponsler, 34, Pawhuska, Oklahoma Oklahoma teacher arrested for doing cartwheel without undies A substitute teacher was arrested and thrown in jail yesterday for indecent exposure after she performed a cartwheel in a high school choir class “with no under garments on,” police allege. According to cops, Lacey Sponsler, 34, exposed herself to students last Friday at Pawhuska High School in Pawhuska, a city about 50 miles north of Tulsa. Sponsler, seen above, was wearing a long dress, but no underwear, “which caused her to expose herself to the students in this class,” cops allege. “This act was gleefully captured by a student on their cell phone,” said Police Chief Scott Laird. As detailed in a probable cause affidavit, as Sponsler (seen above) performed the cartwheel in the “Junior High Choir room,” her dress was “flipped up,” exposing her buttocks. An officer who reviewed the video of the incident added, “I further noticed that the Defendant was not wearing any type of underwear.” A 17-year-old female student told police that Sponsler “had said that she was not wearing underwear before performing the cartwheel,” which exposed her “bare vagina.” The student noted that she saw Sponsler’s “vagina open and close, as her legs were in the air.” The girl also told police that Sponsler “had been talking about using drugs” and commented on how she “thought fourteen year old boys were like men.” When questioned by police, Sponsler initially denied performing the cartwheel in class. When told that a student captured the cartwheel in a Snapchat video, Sponsler replied that she “did not remember performing a cartwheel or exposing her vagina and buttocks.” Sponsler told police that she was “just dancing with the students” and "trying to be a cool teacher." According to court records, Sponsler pleaded guilty in 2008 to marijuana possession, public intoxication, and possession of drug paraphernalia (for which she received a two-year deferred sentence, was fined $1100, and was ordered to perform 100 hours of community service). In December 2009, a judge ruled that Sponsler violated her probation, in part because she had not disclosed being questioned by police investigating an accused meth cook. Sponsler told cops that she had been present in the suspect’s home when he was manufacturing the drug, adding that the man was “careless when he cooks.” In September 2011, Sponsler pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine and marijuana in the presence of a child and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was sentenced to a three- year deferred sentence. As part of that plea deal, prosecutors dropped a burglary charge against Sponsler, who is pictured above in a mug shot snapped yesterday. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rose Re: Clean with compressed air or vaccum ? Dear Webby What is better for cleaning keyboards and computers, cans of compressed air or vacuum cleaner? Rose Dear Rose Cans of compressed air are good for people who sell them. A vaccumm cleaner is the better choice for all computer related items. Instead of blowing dirt into even harder to reach places, a vaccum gets rid of it. While kids will use canned air for huffing and experimenting how close they can get to dying, none have been recorded of using a vacuum cleaner without having been explicitly ordered to do that.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Easy Cookie Sheet Sliders By lalala... [795 Posts, 103 Comments] This is an easy way to make sliders for a large group. We made them for the Super Bowl and they were a huge hit! Source: Food Network Ingredients: #Toppings 10 x 15 in rimmed cookie sheet 3 lb ground beef (90/10) 1 medium onion, finely diced 2 eggs 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs 4 tsp vegetable oil 1-2 tsp salt ground black pepper garlic powder slider buns cheddar cheese lettuce pickles tomato sliced onion ketchup and mustard Steps: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, eggs, and salt. Finely dice the onion and press between paper towels to remove excess moisture. Spread onions out evenly on the bottom of the cookie sheet. Drop ground beef mixture in small pieces onto the onions. Use a spatula to press the ground beef down evenly into the bottom of the cookie sheet. Try to fill in any gaps in the meat. Then use the spatula to gently score the beef into small patties. Brush the patties with vegetable oil. Lightly season the patties by sprinkling them with pepper and garlic powder. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until meat is cooked through. Check them part way through and drain off any moisture/fat that has collected in the cookie sheet. If you want you can broil the patties for a few minutes to brown them up a little. Cut cheese slices into quarters and put a piece of cheese onto each patty. Put the patties back in the oven for 1 minute or until cheese is bubbly. Carefully recut patties and remove from the pan. Serve with grilled onions or lettuce, tomato, and sliced onion. Enjoy! Most definitely broil them a bit to fake that nice charcoal BBQ crisp! WARNING: Some people consider "sliders" as appetizers! Have FUN! DearWebby

Suddenly Mrs. Murphy realizes that a young man is about to propose. Not wanting to be eavesdropping during such an intimate moment, she gently nudges her husband and whispers, "Whistle to let that young couple know that someone can hear them." To which Murphy replies, "Whistle? Why should I whistle? Nobody whistled to warn me!"

______________________________________________________ Reported by Noella An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Sarah Ekhardt, 57, Travis County, Texas Pussy-brain judge in Texas wears pussy-hat in court A judge in Travis County, Texas showed up to the bench earlier this week wearing a notable clothing item, a "Marching Vaginas Pussy Hat", from where some women in a few towns where Democrats won, protested that Americans had elected Melania's hubby instead of Broom Hilda. (via IJR). The worst part, though, is the city said it's perfectly legal for her to do so. Travis county is currently about to be defunded because of not obeying state law regarding illegal immigrant felons. A photo of Judge Sarah Eckhardt wearing the "Marching Vaginas Pussy Hat" in her courtroom first appeared on Facebook, then soon after, went viral on Twitter. One tweet questioned whether defendants felt they could "expect a fair trial, especially as a man" if the judge was wearing a pussy hat. However, apparently she has been known to be a raving Democrat and not letting legalities stand in her way. Should Judge Sarah Eckhardt be awarded a Pussyhead award instead of a Bonehead Award?

______________________________________________________ Reported by Moe An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dr. Kevin Lake 50, Columbus, Ohio Ohio doctor pleads guilty to drug, tax evasion charges A doctor and former university trustee pleaded guilty Monday to charges of tax evasion and running a pill mill in Columbus that served hundreds of patients a day, authorities said. Dr. Kevin Lake acknowledged knowing that doctors and staff at his Columbus medical clinic were prescribing painkillers without a legitimate medical purpose, according to the indictment and plea deal made public Monday. Lake oversaw illegal operations at Columbus Southern Medical Center that included more than $38 million in patient payments, the government said. Hundreds of patients showed up each day — most of them returning patients — for prescriptions of oxycodone, hydrocodone and Xanax, the U.S. Attorney's Office said. Lake admitted engaging in more than $20 million in money laundering transactions with clinic proceeds, prosecutors said. Lake also evaded $3.5 million in taxes, authorities said. The deal calls for Lake to serve five years in prison. A sentencing date was not set. A message was left with Lake's attorney seeking comment. Lake "got rich by feeding the addictions of hundreds and hundreds of people," said Benjamin Glassman, U.S. Attorney for Columbus and the southern half of Ohio. Lake, 50, served one year as a Bowling Green State University trustee in 2009. He resigned when he was appointed by then-Gov. Ted Strickland to a nine-year term as Ohio University trustee beginning in 2010. He resigned from that position effective immediately on Jan. 21. The university declined to comment. The state medical board lists Lake's status as a doctor as active. Three others already have pleaded guilty in the case, including two doctors at the clinic and a clinic employee. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Brenda Re: Clean site about space Dear Webby Do you have a link to a site about stars that does not have ads that may be unsuitable for kids?

An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her up the flight of steps. "Where would you like to sit?" he asked politely. "The front row please." She answered. "You really don't want to do that," the usher said. "The pastor is really boring." "Do you happen to know who I am?" the woman inquired. "No." he said. "I'm the pastor's mother," she replied indignantly. "Do you know who I am?" he asked. "No." she said. "Good," he answered.

Yes, sure. A perennial favorite: Swampy Marsh, the young Australian father-to-be, is waiting anxiously outside the maternity ward where his wife is having their first baby. He is pacing the floor when the nurse comes out and says, "You have a little boy, Mr. Marsh, but you had better go out and have a cup of coffee, because there may be another one." Swampy turns a little pale and leaves. Some time later he phones the hospital and is told that he is the father of twins, but the nurse cautions, "There is another one on the way, so call back later." At that Swampy decides that coffee is not strong enough, so he goes to a bar and has some beer. When he phones the hospital again he is told that the third baby has arrived and a fourth one is on the way. White-faced, he stumbles to the bar and orders a double scotch. Twenty minutes later, he tries to phone again, but he is so drunk that he dials the wrong number and gets the recorded cricket game score.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Juan Brian Jetter-Clark, 23, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Burglar caused home owner to get shot and killed by cops "They shot the wrong guy," the victim's ex-wife said. Police fatally shot an armed Pittsburgh man inside his home Sunday as officers responded to a call about a burglary in progress, authorities said. Christopher Thompkins ex-wife, Brenda Richmond, said the nightmare began around 4 a.m. when the couple woke to a stranger standing in their bedroom. "I opened my eyes and a man was standing there above us," Richmond, 51, who had reconciled with her ex-husband years ago, told the Pittsburg Post-Gazette. Richmond said Thompkins, 57, asked for her handgun, which was licensed to her. The burglar fled their room, but she said Thompkins became concerned for his elderlyblind and disabled mother who was sleeping downstairs. "He was just saying, 'My mom, my mom,'" she told The Tribune Review. "That's all he was worrying about." Thompkins hurried down their homes staircase and opened fire at the burglar. Two officers, who were about to attempt to enter the home after receiving a call about a possible burglary in progress shot through the closed door without warning and killed Thompkins. Richmond said that she wasn't aware that a security alarm had been tripped, alerting local police. She later called 911 herself after climbing out onto her house's roof, she told the Post-Gazette. Suspect Juan Brian Jetter-Clark, 23, was taken into custody at the scene for criminal trespass, police said. "They shot the wrong guy," Richmond told the Tribune. "He didn't want to hurt no cops. He was trying to save his mother." Speaking to the Post-Gazette, she said she realizes that officers were just trying to do their job. "They heard somebody shooting, they shoot," she said. Still, she said she wishes that "the protocol can be made better." Theoretically they should have announced their presence, not just shot through the door. According to the Post-Gazette, Thompkins spent 10 years in prison for the shooting death of another man during a domestic dispute involving Richmond. The couple was married at the time of the 1994 shooting but had been separated for a month. Richmond said Thompkins "was not the same man today that he was back then." In a statement, police said that the two officers involved have been placed on administrative leave. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Martin Re: Capturing pictures from PowerPoint Presentrations Dear Webby I'd just like to capture the picture, not the drivel.

>From Wayne During a recent business trip to Boeing's Everett, Washington factory, I noticed several 747 and 777 airliners being assembled. Before the engines were installed, huge weights were hung from the wings to keep the planes balanced. The cast iron weights were bright yellow and black and marked, "14,000 lbs." But what I found particularly interesting was some stenciling I discovered on the side of each weight. Imprinted there was the warning: "Remove before flying."

Spray a 9x9 inch baking dish with Pam. Be sure to get the sides sprayed well too. Press crumb mixture into the bottom of dish. Pack down well, especially around the edges. Bake this at 350 degrees F for 15-17 minutes until edges are brown. While this is cooking mix the eggs, sugar and Bisquick together in a bowl. Grate lemon peel from a large lemon and then juice the lemon and add to mixture. Beat on medium speed until blended. Once the crust is finished cooking, pour the wet mixture on top of crust. Be sure to stir the mixture up real good right before pouring over crust. Return to oven and continue baking until top is golden; about 20 minutes. When done remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. While still hot, take a spatula and gently go around the edges of the dish. This will make removal easier once it has cooled. Once it is cooled, cut into squares and enjoy!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Thomas Breeding, 32, Panama City, Floriduh Fisherman's $500K Catch Could Get Him Life in Prison Thomas Breeding chose to sell cocaine bale When commercial fisherman Thomas Breeding found 45 pounds of cocaine floating in the Gulf of Mexico last January, he says he knew the right thing was to turn it over to police. The Florida man instead opted to sell it, a decision that could land him in prison for life. Breeding—a 32-year-old boat captain with drug and weapons convictions, per the Panama City News Herald—says he hadn't "ever been involved in the drug trade before. I was just a hard-working, young commercial fisherman." But the package—worth $500,000 to $620,000 on the street, per AL.com—was apparently too tempting. In June, he gave the cocaine to four others, who sold the drug and paid Breeding a cut. Authorities unraveled the scheme and charged all five with conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. Breeding, found with a gun in his vehicle, also was charged with unlawfully transporting a firearm. Like his co-defendants, Breeding pleaded guilty to the drug charge on Wednesday. He now faces a maximum sentence of life in prison and a $4.25 million fine, and he's warning others not to follow his lead. "I would like to let the public know the dangers and what not to do if this situation comes about," says Breeding, who is to be sentenced Feb. 16. "This changed my life and way of thinking and also made me aware of some of the dangers that can be found off shore." It makes no difference whether he bought it in Mexico or found it near Floriduh. It is cocaine. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dave Re: Transfering pictures Dear Webby I have about 15000 digital photos, all titled and arranged in folders. I also have a new computer. Is there any way to get the pictures, titles and folders into the new computer easily. The program I tried just put the pictures on the CD, nothing else. Thanks for your help. Dave S. Dear David The easiest way is to network the computers. Just get a $4.95 crossover cable and set up a home network, or network via the router. Then you can drag entire folders including their sub-folders over to the new machine. Setting up the home network is easy. Just go into the network set-up wizard and hit Enter a whole bunch of times. There are only very few questions that you have to actually answer. Keep in mind that you will meet some resistance and will have to mess with sharing and permissions, but it's not a big deal. Open all permissions wide. You can always close them after the big move. Then simply drag the directory tree with the pictures to the new machine. Have FUN! DearWebby

A vacationing golfer was out playing on a course that he had never played before. He hired a caddie from the pro shop to show him the layout of the course, and help him decide what shots to play. On the first tee, the golfer missed his shot, and it dribbled forward about 15 yards. He was slightly embarrassed, but determined to play a better second shot. He hit his second shot into the bordering fairway, and his third shot into a sand trap. By the time he holed out on this Par 4, he was 6 over par. The man turned to his caddie and said, "Well, I have never played this badly before!" To which the caddie replied, "What game are you playing, Sir ?"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by William Riley Gaul, 18, Maryville, Tennessee Former Tennessee college student allegedly stalked teen cheerleader before fatally shooting her. A former college football player stalked a high school cheerleader for weeks before fatally shooting her as she slept inside her east Tennessee home, newly filed charges claim. William Riley Gaul, 18, was charged Monday with first-degree murder, aggravated stalking, theft, tampering with evidence, reckless endangerment, employing a firearm during a dangerous felony, and felony murder, WVLT-TV reported. Gaul has been behind bars since November when 16-year-old Emma Walker was found fatally wounded in her Knoxville home. Authorities said the two had been in a relationship and that Walker had broken up with the former Maryville College student before she was killed. The indictment against Gaul says the teen was deeply distraught over her decision, Maryville’s The Daily Times reported. "She had chosen to move on," Walker’s aunt, Jenny Weldon, told The Knoxville News Sentinel in December of her niece’s decision. "He refused to accept it. He chose not to accept her wishes." Gaul allegedly proceeded to stalk Walker throughout October and November before he hid outside her home and fired a gun – one that he reportedly took from his grandfather into her bedroom on the morning of Nov. 23, The Daily Times reported citing a copy of the indictment. Walker was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said. “He knew where she was when he shot through the house," Maj. Michael K. MacLean, of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, previously told the News Sentinel. In a dark twist, in the hours after Walker’s death, Gaul took to social media to profess his love for the slain teen. He was arrested one day later when authorities said he tried to hide evidence in the shooting. The District Attorney’s office did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday. Gaul’s bond has been set at $1 million. His next court date is scheduled for Jan. 30, online records show. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dolores Re: Spam with my address as sender Dear Webby Lately I have been getting more and more spam with my address forged in as the sender.

The CIA loses 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 a pub in Dublin. 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, who's president of our local savings bank. There's Murphy the Blacksmith, who works at the stables. 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 three villages right down the river, but he occasionally comes in here around 6 PM. I'll page you if he shows up."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Thao Sandy Doan, 27, West Oak Cliff, Texas Teacher had sex with student and then got blackmailed A Texas middle school teacher charged with sexually assaulting an eighth-grade student may lose her freedom and nearly $30,000 police said she paid the teenager for his silence. Thao "Sandy" Doan, 27, a math teacher at Raul Quintanilla Senior Middle School in West Oak Cliff, was charged Friday with last year’s sexual assault of a student, who was 14 at the time. Doan was freed on $25,000 bond. According to an affidavit for a search warrant obtained by the Dallas Morning News, Doan was making massive blackmail payments to the teen to buy his silence. The scheme fell apart when the teen’s mother found a disturbing text message on her son’s cellphone. The Dallas Independent School District Police Department began investigating this month. “He received a message from the teacher that morning, saying, "I'll be at a meeting until 11 o’clock and I'll drop off the money to the address you told me to," the student’s mother, who asked not to be identified, told Fort Worth’s CBS 11 News. The mysterious message, along with the mother’s impression that her son suddenly had a lot of money, led her to suspect he was selling drugs, she said. According to the police affidavit, Doan admitted to investigators that she exchanged explicit text messages with the teen and confessed to sexually assaulting him on at least three occasions. She said the student extorted cash from her in exchange for his silence, the document says. Doan appeared to have used her savings and payday loans to give her victim roughly $28,000, according to police. "She did bad," the teen’s mother, referring to the teacher, told Fort Worth’s FOX 4 News. "And I’m not condoning what he did, because I know he was wrong at what he also did, because blackmailing is not acceptable." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Daniel Re: Spam Control Dear Webby hello my friend, just wanted to tell you i'm still voting and ask a question. is there a spam blocker that will block spam before it get's to your comp. but at the same time be simple enough for a computer illerate like myself to use? thanks, daniel Dear Daniel Yes, there sure is.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Valentine's Day on a Shoestring Budget Due to unforeseen circumstances, my budget for this year's Valentine's Day will be very small. I will not be able to afford expensive food or a lavish dessert, but that does not mean that I want to skimp on the celebrations. Valentine's Day on a Shoestring Budget By Benetta [277 Posts, 170 Comments] Due to unforeseen circumstances, my budget for this year's Valentine's Day will be very small. I will not be able to afford expensive food or a lavish dessert, but that does not mean that I want to skimp on the celebrations. A heart shaped butterscotch pudding dessert, on a plate. I decided to make a dessert with butterscotch instant pudding, but to add a touch to make it more special. Obviously I wanted to practice first, not leaving it for Valentine's Day, to see if it would look good enough to do the trick. I used six small heart-shaped silicone molds, which I first sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. I added a crust (made from crushed vanilla wafers and a little bit of melted butter) to the bottom of each mold. Then I filled each mold to the brim with instant pudding and dusted the top with grated chocolate. Into the freezer so that the molds would set. To serve, I dusted the plate with cocoa powder and icing sugar, turned the heart out on the plate and added a cherry on top. Serve immediately and voila! Perfect! I think this should do the trick, don't you think? Instead of expensive instant pudding you can use Birds Custard, just like your Great Gramma used. It is still available, though you might have to look on high shelves in the baking supplies isles. In addition to lower cost and better taste, you don't need to spray the molds with WD40 or PAM, just wet them with cold water. Birds Custard is neutral with a very slight Vanilla flavor. You can flavor it any way you want, chocolate, fruit, mint, malt, whatever turns your crank that day. From living in the bush I got used to using cans of condensed milk. One can of milk, one can of melted snow or water, 1 TBSP of honey, bring to just about boiling. In the meantime mix 1 heaping TBSP Bird Custard powder with just enough water to make a smooth paste. Wash and wet a bunch of small bowls and set them out for easy filling. Hammer or cut a square of Baker's Semi-Sweet chocolate to small bits and have it ready. When the milk is just about boiling, stir in the paste and keep stirring. It will thicken fast. When it makes blb-blb-blb sounds, swirl in the chocolate bits for a nice marble and pour the custard into the wet bowls. Let them cool and enjoy.

Making soap the old fashioned way.
Bob and his wife were driving down a country lane on their way to visit some friends. They came to a big, muddy hole in the road and the car became bogged down. After a few minutes of trying to get the car out by themselves, they saw a young farmer coming down the lane, driving some oxen before him. The farmer stopped when he saw the couple in trouble and offered to pull the car out of the mud for $50. Bob readily accepted and minutes later the car was free. Bob looked at the muddy tracks around the puddle and remarked that a lot of cars must be getting stuck there. "You know, you're the tenth car I've helped out of the mud today, the farmer said" Bob looked around at the fields incredulously and asked the farmer, "When do you have time to plough your land? You must do it at night." "No," the young farmer replied seriously, "Night is when I put the water in the hole. My wife plows and disks the farm with the tractor."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Aryanna Ieasha Reed, 25, Jacksonville, Floriduh Pregnant woman beaten by sister in weave dispute Angered that her one month pregnant sister refused to return a weave, a Florida woman allegedly pummeled her sibling, according to cops who arrested the accused assailant on a felony battery charge. Police allege that Aryanna Ieasha Reed, 25, battered her sister Tyteahni, 24, during a confrontation Saturday afternoon at the victim’s Jacksonville apartment. As detailed in a police report, Tyteahni told investigators that Reed had called her to demand the return of the hairpiece, which Reed had given to her sister as a Christmas present. When Tyteahni refused to return the weave, Aryanna “came to the victim’s apartment and confronted her.” Tyteahni again “refused to give it to her because she had it on her head and didn’t want to go to work without it on her head.” At that point, the sisters began scuffling, with Reed attempting to snatch the weave off Tyteahni’s head. Reed then allegedly began raining punches down on her sister, who is a month into her pregnancy. Police noted that while Tyteahni appeared uninjured, “She said that she was very sore and was going to the hospital to get her and her unborn baby checked out.” During a police interview, Tyteahni’s five-year-old daughter said that Reed came to the family’s home and “beat her mommy up.” Reed told cops that a “physical altercation” occurred in the apartment, but she could not remember the details. Reed said that she knew her sister was pregnant, and told cops that she was also pregnant. The report did not state if she was more than a month pregnant. The police report does not disclose why Reed sought the return of the Christmas present. Reed, pictured above, was charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant woman, a felony. Following her arrest, a cop noted, Reed became “very uncooperative” and “yelled at the top of her lungs, cursed me out, and accused me of being a racist.” Reed was released from custody Sunday after posting $35,000 bond. In 2009, Reed was arrested on a felony count for battering a pregnant woman. That charge was subsequently reduced to misdemeanor battery, for which Reed pleaded no contest. She was sentenced to probation and was ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and attend anger management classes. After subsequently violating her probation terms, Reed was sentenced to 20 days in the county jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Joyce Re: Recipe Site Dear Webby On reading the Tech Support and reading about Rons' query, I have a wonderful site that he might like to check out.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Ink Stain on Laundered Clothing You know, I used to use hairspray, but a couple of years ago it wasn't working, and I did some internet research. I found on the "Heloise" website (don't know if you're too young to remember Heloise) that rubbing alcohol works better on today's inks and fabrics. I have had good success with it. I put some on before washing, let it sit for a minute or so, then just throw it in with the other clothes. Check to see that the stain is entirely gone before putting in the dryer. Good luck.

Thanks to Judy for this one: My niece has 4 kids and was breast feeding the baby when #3 child, Jack wanted to climb up into her lap. During the process he was using his elbows to push his way up and hit her other breast so she said 'watch the elbows Jack'. When Grandmother came over later, Jack climbed up into her lap, patted her rather ample bosom and said "I like your elbows, Grandma". Needless to say, they will always be elbows to us from now on and Jack can look forward to a lot of teasing about it in the future.

Two guys were discussing the prospects of "looming" retirement. While one guy had lots of hobbies, the other fellow had no hobbies, and was rather concerned about being set loose with nothing to do. The first guy suggested his friend go visit his kids. The man said, "Well, I only have two kids, but I could buy a motor home and go visit my brothers and sisters, that would take about a year." The first guy looked a bit puzzled, so his friend said, "I'm one of eighteen kids in my family." The first fellow's eyes got rather large, contemplating eighteen children, so the man volunteered to explain. "You see, my mother was hard of hearing. My Mom and Dad would go to bed at night, and my Dad would ask, 'Do you want to go to sleep, or what?' and my Mom would say, "What?"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cream Cheese Thumbprint Cookies By lalala... [795 Posts, 103 Comments] I had these at my friend Melanie's house, and they are definitely going to be one that we make every year! Yield: Approx. 32 cookies Source: All Recipes - Apricot Cream Cheese Thumbprints Ingredients: 1 1/2 cup butter, softened 1 1/2 cup sugar 1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened 2 eggs 1 large lemon (2 Tbsp. juice and 1 1/2 tsp. zest) 4 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1 cup fruit preserves (I used Smucker's Simply Fruit Apricot and Red Raspberry) Steps: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, soften cream cheese. Add sugar and softened butter. Mix thoroughly. Beat eggs, one at a time, into cream cheese mixture. Zest one large lemon. Add to cream cheese mixture. Squeeze 1/2 lemon for juice. Add 2 Tbsp. lemon juice and stir well. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Add combined dry ingredients to cream cheese mixture in small amounts mixing well. Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until dough is firm. Scoop out 1 Tbsp. dough and roll into a ball in your hands. Continue until all the dough is shaped. Place the dough balls onto an ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Gently press your thumb into the center of each dough ball, leaving an indentation. Turn your thumb and press again for a more uniform cavity. Spoon 1/2 tsp. preserves into the center of each cookie. Place the cookie sheet into the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Note: I prefer a softer cookie, so I do not bake them until the edges turn golden brown. Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet. Then place them on a wire rack to cool thoroughly. When packing them into a container, I recommend not stacking them directly on top of each other, as they will stick together.

The boy replied no, that he was going fishing but his dad told him that he needed to go to church. The teacher was very impressed and asked the boy if his dad had explained to him why it was more important to go to church than to go fishing, "Yes he did," the boy replied, "dad said he didn't have enough bait for both of us.

He had 60 half-litre bottles of beer in his car as he was going on holiday, and after cracking one open to think about the problem he realised he could urinate on the snow to melt it, local media reported. He said: "I was scooping the snow from above me and packing it down below the window, and then I peed on it to melt it. It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt. But I'm glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be useful and I managed to get out of there."

Thanks Ulrike Dear Ulrike PayPal is 100% reliable and safe. There are a few cautions to keep in mind though. Don't use PayPal for large payments at the last minute before going on vacation. Their autoresponders may decide to consider them suspicious, stop them and send emails to you to confirm them. If you are on a world cruise, or helping a relative or friend somewhere, or doing missionary or development work in a foreign country, you might come home to a disconnected phone, foreclosed mortgage, re-possessed car, and all kinds of problems, not the least of which is that you will be arguing with autoresponders at PayPal.. However, as long as you keep that in mind and make any large or important payments two weeks before you expect to be off the net for a while, everything is fine. They are just protecting you. The same goes if there is a dispute with a merchant. They will side with you, but will also listen to the merchant side. Naturally, you should read the small print when ordering stuff, especially free samples of supplements, that have in the small print that if you don`t want to automatically sign up for a lifetime of automatic charges, you have to return the free samples 10 days before you receive them. PayPal will still help you, but it won`t be as fast and easy as for example if you have a dispute with a reasonably legitimate vendor. I have dealt with PayPal since around 2000, and have never had a problem with them. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Indoor Snowball Fight Kit By lalala... [795 Posts, 103 Comments] Supplies: Bernat baby blanket yarn (white) giant pom pom maker scissors Steps: Open one half of the pom pom maker and begin wrapping yarn around it, working your way from one end to the other. Continue wrapping until it is almost full and there is only a slight arched space in the middle. Then clip that half closed and repeat on the other half. Use scissors to cut through the center of the wrapped yarn, along the groove. Repeat on the other side. Cut a length of yarn and pull it firmly into the groove, bringing the ends together. Tie a tight knot. I like to wrap the yarn around a second time and tie another knot. Cut off the excess yarn. Unclip the two sides, then separate the pom pom maker to release the pom pom. Trim any long pieces of yarn, if necessary. Make as many snowballs as you like.

In may 2015, the paper notes, he became acquainted with members of the aspen police department after being found sleeping in the stairwell of a tony restaurant, casa tua. Then, last july, cops found him dancing in the middle of castle creek road, allegedly under the influence of meth — a substance he was arrested for possessing the following month. But on sunday, september 11, police say he took things to the next level. At 6:15 p.M. That evening, officers were called to the spectacular limelight hotel on a report that olson was passed out on the establishment's front lawn. He was gone by the time they arrived. However, they managed to track him down a couple of blocks away, at which point he asked a sergeant on the scene for some meth. That was pretty standard behavior for olson, so the cops sent him on his way. But they had to take action just under two hours later, when they spotted him near the intersection of south monarch street and hopkins avenue. The reason was as plain as the penis on olson's body, which was in view because he'd ditched his clothes, reportedly in order to "feel free" as he listened to his ipod. At that point, a female officer told olson to get dressed — an order to which he allegedly responded by making what the times refers to as "verbal sexual advances toward the officer." In response, olson was given something to wear: a set of handcuffs. This choice of attire doesn't appear to have thrilled him much. He's accused of being uncooperative when the cops tried to put him into their patrol car, then refusing to leave it once they got to jail, where he was booked on suspicion of indecent exposure, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Westchester Animal Clinic Re: When I go to the Spybot site, there are a whole bunch of options.

______________________________________________________ Reported by Wayne An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Danielle L. Miller, 31, Providence, Pennsylvania Evil stepmother arrested in Pennsylvania for torturing 4 year old stepp-son A stepmom in Pennsylvania has been arrested relating to claims she abused her 4-year-old stepson by beating and burning the toddler and feeding him adult laxatives and hot sauce. 31-year-old Danielle L. Miller of Providence Township, Pennsylvania is still in jail on a $300,000 bond. Nathan P. Duke, the boy's dad, is also incarcerated on $100,000 bail. He is charged with failing to stop or report the abuse, which may have been ongoing for as long as a year. The investigation began when a family member showed law enforcement pictures of the boy with bruises and injuries across his body. Medical experts determined most of the injuries were intentionally inflicted or suspicious burns. The criminal complaint noted the injuries were "too numerous to be explained by normal childhood activity and clearly indicative of inflicted trauma." One witness claimed she saw Miller verbally and physically abuse the boy every day for about three months. Miller made the toddler eat poop beans,ť which contained adult laxatives and then pour hot sauce in his mouth, and not give him water for 15 minutes. The witness also claimed Miller would play mermaid, that is, wrapping up the legs with a sheet and duct tape and confining him, and the boy also wore soiled pull-ups for hours at a time. It also appears that the stepmom locked the boy in a padded room, a closet, and then tortured him by scratching the wall and saying the "rats would come and get him." Miller also regularly cursed at the toddler, yelling: "I'm gonna kick your ass. You are a f–ing pig, You nasty ass hole,ť and You have a stupid, f–ing, ugly faace." Charges of aggravated assault, false imprisonment, unlawful restraint, endangering the welfare of a child, terroristic threats, reckless endangerment, and harassment have been filed against Miller. Duke faces charges of conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child, because he knew about it and did not stop or report the abuse. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Corey Re: Does a screensaver slow down a download?

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cheese Lover's Treat By likekinds [238 Posts, 1,102 Comments] I use to make a wicked baked macaroni and cheese, with two kinds of cheese for the macaroni and a third for the topping. On one occasion I baked that and an apple cake based on a carrot cake recipe, that Mama took to a church social. When I picked her up, I asked how the macaroni and cake tasted. She said, "I don't know. It was all gone before I got to taste either". I don't cook like that anymore. Anything I cook now is usually quick and easy. When I did cook macaroni, I let the cheese topping get a little brown and crusty around the edges. To me, that was the best part of the dish. With that in mind, I contrived a little snack I can't get enough of; simple, quick and delicious. Sooo good, people. And if you were doing this for breakfast, you could put scrambled eggs atop the snack once it has finished cooking. Much, much better than scrambled eggs with the cheese just melted on top or mixed in when scrambling. Go for it, y'all! Steps: Cut French bread into about 3/4 to an inch slices. Put a thin film of mayonnaise on one side of each. Put the slices in a non stick pan greased with melted butter, mayo side up. Then sprinkle a hefty layer of finely grated cheddar cheese on top. Watch and check closely. When the bread has toasted to a nice golden brown on the bottom, flip it over. With the cheese on the bottom, you have to work quickly. In less than a minute, the cheese will turn a rich, crusty brown, just like on the macaroni. Immediately remove from the pan onto a ready plate.

An engineering student, a physics student, and a mathematics student were each given $150 dollars and were told to use that money to find out exactly how tall a particular hotel was. All three ran off, extremely keen on how to do this. The physics student went out, gathered a few friends, purchased some stopwatches, a number of ball bearings, and a calculator. He had the friends time the drop of ball bearings from the roof, and he then figured out the height from the time it took for the bearings to accelerate from rest until they impacted with the sidewalk. The math student purchased a protractor, plumb line, tripod and measuring tape. She waited until the sun was going down, then used her equipment to measure the length of the shadow, and find the angle the building's roof made from the ground. Then she used trigonometry to figure out the height of the building. Of course, with all that was involved in getting this experiment done, they were up plenty late studying for exams in other courses. These two students bumped into the engineering student the next day, who looked quite refreshed. When asked what he did to find the height of the building he replied, "Well, I walked up to the bell hop, gave him 10 bucks, asked him how tall the hotel was, and went inside for happy hour!"

Dear Webby, Dear Webby. In regard to your comments below. I'm currently running (based upon your advice over the years) McAfee Pro and Malwarebytes. Malware as you know came out with an update on January 17th. I installed the update on my W7 system. Both of these are currently running on my PC. Should I un install the McAfee? I have about 160 days remaining on current subscription. How does the average individual know what is the best protection? You have been an invaluable source of knowledge in the past. What about the future? Thank you for educating those of us that have been subscribers for many years. Frank PS...Ark City barely escaped the hugh ice storm over the weekend because our temps hovered at 33° F for two days. We remember the storm in 2002 that left us without power for 7-10 days. Dear Frank Yes, at one time you needed both, but Malwarebytes has been improved sufficiently, so that you don't need both programs anymore. When neither I nor the chat techs of Mcafee could get it to work on my W7-Pro, they suggested to just put MalwareBytes on, that it was all I needed. Well, I was going to do that anyway, right after setting up McAfee. So I dumped the not working McAfee and installed Malwarebytes. No more problems. You don't have to dump McAfee as long as it works and doesn't cause problems. Just make sure it is not on Auto- Renew. I remember that 2002 ice storm that broke trees and bushes and power lines in Ark City. I got there just after that. Have FUN! DearWebby
As the manager of our hospital's softball team, I was re- sponsible for returning equipment to the proper owners before the start of the next season. When I walked into the surgery department carrying a bat that belonged to one of the surgeons, I passed several patients and their families in a waiting area. "Look, honey," one man said to his wife.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lakinta Cosby, 39, Dallas, Texas South Dallas woman arrested after she ran down man after domestic dispute On Saturday afternoon, a white SUV plowed into Sherron Berry, 36, on a Martin Luther King Boulevard sidewalk in South Dallas. Police arriving on the scene a little after 12:30 p.m. quickly discovered from witnesses that the deadly collision was no accident, as video from the scene would make clear. The white SUV pauses in the middle lane as Berry begins walking in the opposite direction. The SUV flips a U-turn and begins following Berry slowly. As Berry walks down the sidewalk, the SUV appears to speed up, before running onto the sidewalk. Berry runs, the SUV close on his heels. The collision itself is obscured by a building. Cosby had driven up and down the street several times until she saw Berry, police said. She dragged him under her car for about a city block, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. Earlier Saturday, Cosby and Berry were involved in a domestic altercation at a home on Pennsylvania Avenue, police said. DPD put out a request for information on its blog Saturday afternoon. By Saturday night, they received the tip they needed. The car that hit Berry was parked outside 2109 Prichard Street. Officers drove to Prichard Lane late Saturday after receiving a tip that the SUV seen in the video was there. Cosby arrived in a blue BMW. She stepped out, held up her hands and confessed. Eventually, Lakinta Cosby arrived at the house. DPD gang unit officers arrested her. Later, according to DPD, she confessed that she ran Berry over after a domestic dispute. She has been charged with murder. Cosby, currently in Dallas County Jail on $100,000 bond, has a long, if nonviolent history with DPD. According to county records, she has previously been convicted of giving a cop a fake ID, driving without a license, theft and prostitution.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Individual Chocolate Cakes By Becky Miles [100 Posts, 158 Comments] This is taken from Nigella Lawson's recipe for Chocohotopots. (I made a few changes). They are delicious and quick to whip up. My picky kids can't wait for these to come out of the oven. Definitely a keeper! Total Time: 10 minutes to make, 20-25 minutes to cook Yield: 4 cakes Source: Nigella Lawson's Chocohotopots Ingredients: 1 stick of butter (8 tablespoons) 4 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped (I just use half a cup of chocolate chips) 2 eggs 3/4 cup sugar 3 Tbsp flour 1 tsp vanilla 1 tsp salt 1/2 tsp of instant coffee dissolved in 1 teaspoon of hot water Steps: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter 4 ramekins with an extra tablespoon of butter. Melt chocolate and butter. Cool a little (a few minutes). In separate bowl, combine eggs, sugar, flour, vanilla, salt, and dissolved coffee. Add chocolate mixture to the bowl. Stir til combined. Pour into ramekins. The original recipe says to bake for 20 minutes. But, it's a little too gooey and under-cooked to serve to my kids. I bake them for 25-28 minutes, til there's no jiggle and the cakes are more set. When the cakes come out, you can add some chocolate to the middle or if you like to live dangerously, a spoonful of Nutella. Ice cream is really good on it, too. Seems like an awful lot of work compared to "Chocolate Cake in a cup". You can put all the ingredients for "Chocolate Cake in a cup" into ziplock baggies, while you are watching and waiting for something, and have a shoebox full of magic ready and waiting for whenever you need one minute cakes. Kids really oooh and aaah when they see the cake rise out of the cup, and then settle back down. That is pure MAGIC! There are lots of cake in a cup recipes on the net. Mine is glued to the inside of a cabinet door in the kitchen. Have FUN! DearWebby

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Angela Maria Diaz, 31, Annaheim, California Wife Of U.S. Marshal charged with Diabolical Rape Frame-Up Of his Ex-Lover The wife of a U.S. marshal has been charged with kidnapping and falsely reporting a crime in a bizarre rape-fantasy frame-up of her husband’s former girlfriend, Southern California officials revealed Monday. Investigators say Angela Maria Diaz, 31, who then lived in Anaheim, posed as the victim of a fabricated Craigslist rape fantasy ad in a bid to land rival Michelle Suzanne Hadley, 30, in prison. Diaz married a U.S. marshal, referred to as John Doe in court documents, a year ago. Hadley was his girlfriend from 2013 to 2015. Diaz tried to make it appear that Hadley, of nearby Ontario, had placed the fake ad last June to entice men to rape Diaz, according to investigators. The ad said Diaz wanted to indulge in her rape fantasies and supplied photos of Diaz and information about her routines. The ad encouraged men to have forcible sex with Diaz, "even if she screamed or resisted". Diaz reported to police that men had appeared at her home intending to rape her and that one had attacked her but fled before police arrived. In an apparent effort to bolster her false claims, Diaz showed police her torn shirt and redness on her neck and breast, the DA’s office said. Diaz had reported to Anaheim police earlier that Hadley sent several threatening emails — and obtained a restraining order against Hadley — but investigators said Diaz had sent the threats to herself. Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas called it a "diabolical scheme." Investigators initially believed Hadley was responsible for the false ad and for the danger to Diaz, and Hadley was charged with 10 felonies, including stalking and attempted forcible rape. If convicted, she faced up to life in prison, noted KTLA-TV in Los Angeles. She was held in lieu of $1 million bail from July to October, until her attorney, Michael Guisti, helped uncover information that authorities said exonerated her. As important as the filing of charges against Ms. Diaz, is the dismissal of the previous complaint and full exoneration of Michelle Hadley, Rackauckas said in a statement. Ms. Hadley is cleared in every possible way in the courtroom and in the court of public opinion. It should be clear in the media and in cyberspace. Ms. Hadley is an innocent victim of a diabolical scheme. Guisti told the Los Angeles Times that Hadley was a wide- eyed, very bubbly young woman with a lust for life whose family had to borrow money for her defense. To have her so thoroughly exonerated by the district attorney is a huge relief to her. Diaz was arrested Jan. 6 in Phoenix and was charged with two felony counts each of kidnapping (linked to false reports that landed Hadley in jail) and false imprisonment by menace, fraud or deceit, one felony count of perjury, one felony count of grand theft and two felony counts of forgery, among a number of other charges, according to the Orange County district attorney’s office. She also is accused of faking cervical cancer and a pregnancy, pretending to be an attorney and forging doctor’s notes during the alleged scheme. Diaz is awaiting extradition to Orange County. All charges were dropped against Hadley on Monday. This has been a huge nightmare for me, she told reporters as she left the courthouse. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Frank Re: Text editor Dear Webby, Is there a simple text editor that doesn't have the problems that NotePad and WordPad have ?

Back at the shop he opened the car's trunk, and soon discovered the problem. He returned the repair order to the service manager with the notation, "Removed dead pumpkin from trunk".

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Recycling Political Campaign Signs My biggest pet peeve around here is that after the election our city is littered with election signs and issue signs that no one ever gets around to picking up. So here is my solution. Everyone out there in Thrifty tip land probably has had a yard sale or two so here is my deal, grab up those signs and recycle them for your next yard sale. The ones that are just a plastic sleeve over a wire base can be reused by sliding off the plastic sleeve. Cut down a white kitchen trash bag and sizing it down to fit on the white frame snugly. Use big stick on letters to tell about your next sale. The ones that are rigid foam board can be spray painted to cover campaign slogans and your info stenciled on instead. Recycling at its best I say. By Debra in CO

Is W7 really no longer secure? 




Good Morning, ,
Today is Wednesday, January 18

Pioneer Cabin Tree, the giant Sequoiatree with a tunnel
through it, has fallen.

The tree was probably about 3000 years old and still
showed signs of life, but powerful storms in the area
caused flooding that it could not withstand. The ground
got too soft for it's weight, including the huge amount
of water it had soaked up, it toppled over and shattered.

The tunnel through it had been carved in the 1800s.

I am glad I took my dad to see those giant sequoias when
he could still hike in rough terrain.


Here he is standing beside "General Sherman", which at
the time in 2002 was 275 feet tall and had a diameter of
36 feet at the base. 
Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Thomas Pinson, 21, St. Petersburg, Florida Florida man with mom's name tattooed on chest is arrested for battering her A Florida man who has his mother’s full name tattooed on his chest was arrested early Saturday for shoving the woman to the ground during a confrontation in their residence, cops report. Investigators allege that Thomas Pinson, 21, battered his mother Carmon, 47, around 3:45 AM Saturday. Pinson, police say, “grabbed his mother with two hands and shoved her backwards into a kitchen chair.” She then fell to ground “and hit her head as a result of being shoved,” a criminal complaint charges. Pinson, who fled his family’s St. Petersburg home before police arrived, was subsequently apprehended and charged with domestic battery, a misdemeanor. Pinson was released yesterday afternoon on his own recognizance from the Pinellas County jail. According to police and jail records, Pinson (seen above) has “Carmon Pinson” inked on his chest. Next to that tribute is a tattoo of a rose. Pinson’s rap sheet includes collars for marijuana possession, attempted robbery with a firearm, and grand theft auto. But he has only been convicted of the pot charge. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Is W7 not secure? Dear Webby, Today, I read concerns about W 7 being so outdated that patches can't keep it secure. These articles come from Kim Komando and ZD Net. What is your take on this? Thanks Bill Dear Bill Consider the source. Kim Kommando is a cute Microsoft shill, and ZD net makes Millions on ads for Microsoft and for new computers. Kim Kommando used to read exactly the same bullshit about XP. Same shit, different names. Many subscribers STILL use XP without a problem! Neither XP nor VISTA nor W7 nor W8 nor W10 are secure, no matter how many patches and bug fixes you put on them. You still need Malwarebytes to make them secure. If you want to paw your monitor like the kids pawing their phones while chasing a pokemon and running into telephone poles, then get W10. If that is not a priority, keep your money in your pocket and stick with W7. Many of it's bugs have been patched and it is running relatively smoothly these days. Have FUN! DearWebby
>Thanks to Dave for this one: A man walked into the Women's Department of Macy's in New York City. He tells the saleslady, "I would like a Jewish bra for my wife, size 34B." With a quizzical look the saleslady asked, "What kind of bra?" He repeated "A Jewish Bra - She said to tell you that she wanted a Jewish Bra, and that you would know what she wanted." "Ah, now I remember," said the saleslady. "We don't get as many requests for them as we used to. Mostly our customers lately want the Catholic bra, or the Salvation Army bra, or the Presbyterian type." Confused, and a little flustered, the man asked "Oy, what differences they are ?" The saleslady responded. "It is all really quite simple. The Catholic type supports the masses. The Salvation Army lifts up the fallen, and the Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright." He mused on that information for a minute, and asked "So, what is the Jewish type for?" "They," she replied, "make mountains out of molehills." -------------------------- And then there is the "Job Interview Bra".

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Homemade Sloppy Joes By lalala... [795 Posts, 103 Comments] I love it when my best friend comes over to make sloppy joes. I like the kind that uses tomato paste and a seasoning packet, but I love hers! :) Total Time: 30 minutes Yield: 8 sloppy joes Ingredients: 1 lb ground turkey 1 lb ground beef 1 1/2 cup ketchup 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce 1 1/2 tsp dry mustard 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 tsp garlic powder Steps: Brown meat in a skillet and drain off any liquid. Add ketchup, stir to combine. Then add Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Mix well. Stir in the garlic powder, adjust amount to taste. Allow to simmer on LOW for 5 minutes. Serve hot a hamburger bun. Best Sloppy Joe I ever had was at an "Original Tommy's" in Henderson, Nevada. Friends in California kept raving about Original Tommys, so I looked for one near my route. My friend Ann told me about one in Henderson, Nevada. It was the only one outside California at that time. My friends warned me to DEFINITELY NOT try to eat it in the car. OK, OK. So my dad and I went inside, ordered, and sat down by the window, that overlooked the drive- through lane. They brought our burgers, snugly wrapped in alu foil, with a stack of napkins and a box of fries. Stack of napkins? Yep. And a spoon. When I undid the foil, the burger exploded. On top of the patty was a big scoop of Sloppy Joe. I could hear snickering from behind the counter. One bite, and Sloppy Joe was squishing out on all sides. More snickering from behind the counter. Then I happened to glance out the window. A fancily dressed up lady in a silver Camaro with white fur upholstery just received a burger like the ones we got. Everything got deathly quiet in the restaurant as everybody held their breath. I was tempted to scream that she should NOT open it in the car. She did, holding it close to her face. When her Original Tommy exploded, and the hot Sloppy Joe ran down her chins and into her cleavage and down her dress, there was considerably more than just snickering from behind the counter and from all the diners. One lady positively howled. She must have tried it in the car at one time. Quite aside from the side show, they definitely had the best Sloppy Joe I had ever tasted. Have FUN! DerWebby

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kaitlin Plascjak, 28, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania woman busted for child porno Kaitlin Plascjak made Allegheny County (Pa.) history, but not the kind that will endear her to her neighbors, or anyone else for that matter. According to the District Attorney, Plascjak, 28, became the first woman in 16 years in the county to be arrested on child pornography charges. She is facing the charges after authorities discovered more than 100 sexually explicit images and videos of infants, toddlers and teenagers stored in her cell phone, law enforcement said. The woman allegedly admitted to the crime, telling WPXI- TV that the videos served as a “coping mechanism,” because she was molested when she was younger. An FBI task force unit received a cyber-tip in August that led them to Plascjak’s mobile home, where she lived with her mother. “It blows me away, just blows me away,” neighbor Nancy Milligan told the TV station. The FBI found disturbing photos and videos of “infants being sexually assaulted” and of teens “exposing themselves” while searching her cell phone. Typically, child pornography is a crime committed by men. If convicted of child pornography, she could face a minimum of 15 to 30 years in prison under federal law. Police said Plascjak had more porn on her phone, but she said she deleted it before she underwent surgery so no one would find the graphic images if something had gone wrong with the operation. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Helene Re: Mailbox shortcuts Dear Webby, I am using the old legacy Eudora, noit the yuppie version, and am quite happy with it.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Grocery List Chalkboard I have a grocery list board on my kitchen cupboard. I don't always have a pen and paper handy when I think of something I need at the grocery store. So I decided to use chalkboard paint to create a surface that I will always have handy. I prepared the surface of the cupboard as directed on the can and painted the cupboard. I also framed it with a 11 x 14 inch wooden painted picture frame (nailed on with small brads) I hot glued a small strip of wood to the frame to hold the chalk. The picture frame is decorated with miniature roosters. Which is the theme of my kitchen. When it is time to do the shopping I just copy the list off the board. By Debbie Z If you don't like the chalk dust or a blackboard does not fit your decor, you can get 24" x 36" Wall Pops WPE0446 24-Inch by 36-Inch Peel and Stick Dry Erase Message Board from Aamzon for about $10. Since that is probably way too big for the kitchen, you can cut it in half and sell the other half to a friend. You simply clean a cupboard door with windex and stick the whiteboard on like contact paper. As long as the kids don't get hold of the dry-erase marker, one will last many years. By the way, forget about whiteboard paint. It is ridiculously expensive and requires an immaculately smooth surface. Not worth it when you can buy peel and stick so cheaply. Have FUN! DearWebby

The Charlotte County ceremony has been described as beautiful, but when the reception kicked off, guests said the maid of honor Amanda Willis hit the bottle hard — and almost hit the best man with his own car. The wedding pictures tell the story of a content couple, Brian and Jennifer Butler. They had their cake and first dance while Willis started drinking. “She was a mess. She drank almost a whole entire bottle of Fireball,” said guest Robert Templeton. “She was drunk within 20 minutes to half an hour,” said Jennifer Butler. Willis started asking people for their keys, according to those in attendance. “She just went up to the best man and grabbed his keys out of his pocket and jumped in his car,” said Templeton. Willis backed out and almost hit the best man — Brian’s brother, who grabbed on to the car, according to WBBH-TV. “She took off, and his feet were dragging across the ground. He had to hit the E-brake,” said Templeton. Guests wrestled Willis out of the car. “She went back inside. She grabbed up the big bottle of Captain Morgan and just guzzled it like this,” said Jennifer Butler. Then they say she got violent. “As soon as I turned around, she came up and cracked me upside of the face,” said Templeton. He said he swung back before he knew what was happening, and the deputies were called. “It was insane. Absolutely insane,” said Jena Templeton. Deputies said Willis claimed to be having an asthma attack and started shaking as if she were having a seizure. They took her to Bayfront Punta Gorda, where she exposed herself to deputies, assaulted two medics and kicked over her bed pan, according to the sheriff’s office. “She had her be her maid of honor, and it was a bad decision,” said Robert Templeton. While Willis was supposed to be the bride’s best friend, Jennifer Butler said the two are no longer friends. This arrest is Willis’ ninth in Charlotte County. She faces charges of larceny, battery, grand theft of a motor vehicle, and violation of probation. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ron Re: Spam concern Dear Webby, I am a recipe collector. I am a member of several different cooking and recipe ezines, much like yours. There are a great deal of recipe web sites as you know. Some do not ask for your email address, however I have run across a couple that look to be good sites but they ask me for my email address and a bit about me, but they are not offering a weekly mailing. Am I likely to get spyware from these type of sites. How about commercial recipe sites i.e. Kraft, Nabisco and so forth, do these companies waste time spamming and putting spyware on these sites? Perhaps this is a dumb question, but I have my machine cleaned up and am trying to keep it fairly clean. Thank you for the suggestion of switching from Norton to McAfee, I am amazed at the difference of what got through. Thank you Ron Dear Ron The big and well known outfits are normally quite legit. When they have something to lose, they toe the line. With unknown ones I would be a lot more careful. Just give them a disposable hotmail address and put a forward into the ho'mail to go to your earthlink address. If that hotmail address becomes a nuisance, dump it. You can set up a forwarding address for each subscription. Subscribe with for example grandrecipes234"hotmail.com, then set that hotmail address to forward to your normal earthlink address. That way, if you get a lot of spam sent to that address, then you know that GrandRecipes has sold your address to the swine. If you still like their recipes, just use MailWasher to make a filter that dumps everything sent to that address but does not have recipe in the body of the mail. MailWasher is still at http://webby.com/mailwasher Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Sorting Dirty Clothing Put a cardboard divider in your clothes hamper and use one side for whites and one for darks. Then when your family puts clothes in, they will already be sorted. Towels and sheets can also go on the white side if you have more dark clothes in family. This has worked very well in my household for several years. By Hazel

How to get rid of streaks on monitor 




Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, January 12

Today I have to go to Calgary again for Lucentis injections
through my eyeballs to the Macular, the platform behind the 
retina. That means nothing gets sent out on Friday,
Saturday or Sunday. And NO mail gets answered on those days.

Fantastic moon and stars out tonight. Skies are clear and
the stars are bright and close. 


A friend introduced me to a book, that she just finished
writing and put onto Amazon: Burnout to Bliss. $1.99
So I thought that would be a good excuse to learn about
Kindle. A quick download and install and my computer was a
free Kindle reader. That was slick!

The book came down just as fast. Reading with that PC Kindle
took some getting used to. No scrolling to read at the
center of the monitor! Each tap of the up or down arrow
flips a page, same as trying to scroll with the mouse.
Once I got the hang of that, it was great!

The Burnout book was great too. I read it non-stop. Have not
done that for decades! Highly recommended! With demand,
Amazon will raise the price, so buy it while it is still
low priced. 

Have FUN!

A group of Christians from a local church were concerned and planned an all-night prayer meeting to ask God to intervene. It just so happened that shortly thereafter lightning struck the bar and it burned to the ground. The owner of the bar sued the church, claiming that the prayers of the congregation were responsible, but the church hired a lawyer to argue in court that they were not responsible. The presiding judge, after his initial review of the case, stated that "no matter how this case comes out, one thing is clear. The tavern owner believes in the power of prayer and the Christians do not." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Noella for this picture: bark in the park ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Christopher Bowyer, 32, Christopher Myatt, 20, Cheadle, Stockport, England Dumb crooks risk blowing themselves up in Ł25,000 ATM raid then get caught by trail of bank notes A pair of bungling crooks who blew up a cash machine were caught after they left a trail of banknotes leading to their hideout. Christopher Bowyer, 32, and Christopher Myatt, 20, risked killing themselves and those nearby when they used gas to blow up an ATM on a petrol station forecourt in Cheadle, Stockport. After scooping Ł25,000 from the mangled dispenser at the BP Garage on Stockport Road, in Manchester, the pair drove off in a getaway car. But Manchester’s Minshull Street Crown Court heard how the pair left Ł2,500 of notes scattered around the area and a trail of cash in the direction they had made off. Police who raced to the scene were quickly able to trace the getaway vehicle with the help of the force helicopter, reports Manchester Evening News. Prosecutor David Bentley told the court how the crooks were found hiding on the M56 gantry at the Wythenshawe junction and an officer was forced to save one of them when they were unable to come down. He added Myatt, in particular, was unable to budge from his perched position, fearing he was ‘going to fall’ to the motorway below. Mr Bentley added: “The officer then grabbed his clothing and dragged him to a safe area.” The court heard how the two had plotted to pump explosive gas into the ATM - a type of crime which has swept the region in recent years. Bowyer, of Woodsend Crescent Road, Urmston, and Myatt, of Wastdale Road, Wythenshawe, drove to the forecourt shortly before 2am on January 11 this year and blew up the cash machine, sending notes flying into the air. After being caught, Myatt’s mobile phone was checked by police and there were images of the forecourt as well as internet searches for gas used in the explosion. His blood was also found on the cash machine itself and glass fragments were found in his shoe. Bowyer was said to be the brains behind the plot - but said he didn’t physically get out to pump the gas or pick up the cash. The pair had previously pleaded guilty to causing an explosion likely to endanger life, and theft. Jailing Bowyer for eight years, and Myatt for seven and a half years, Judge Leslie Hull, said he hoped the sentences would deter others doing the same thing. He said the plot could have endangered lives given its location to residential areas and being so close to highly combustible substances. He added: “The risk of putting other people’s lives on the line was a risk which both of you were willing to take.” ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lynn Re: Monitor streaks Dear Webby, What's the best way to clean a monitor? Mine shows streaks within a day or so of cleaning. Thanks Lynn Dear Trish First, turn the monitor off for five minutes. You can leave the computer running, but turn the monitor off and ignore it for five minutes. Next, vacuum the entire monitor, but especially the screen, even if you can't see any dust on it. The dust is in the invisible little craters etched into the surface to make it less reflective. Then put an old towel below the front of the screen and sponge wipe the screen with plenty of window cleaner or vinegar. Vacuum the screen dry. Repeat that a few times. Spray window cleaner onto the screen and wipe it off with micro fiber cloth or an old tee-shirt. Leave the drip towel in place because usually after a while all the excess liquid that seeped into the case will drip out somewhere. Let it completely dry for at least 15 minutes, then give it a very light spray of a good quality furniture polish and gently wipe it with paper towel or Kleenex. That will repell dust and keep it nice and shiny. It will be a bit more reflective, but not streaky. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Clearing Potato Peelings From Disposal By momof3boys [1 Post] After deciding to send potato peelings and carrot peelings down the drain, I immediately regretted it. They had gone past the disposal, but had clogged the pipe. I was home alone with 2 kids under 3. I happened upon this post and saw the baking soda and vinegar as well as a plunger tip. So I took the plunge. I plunged the sink a couple times and got the clog loose. Then for good measure I did the baking soda with vinegar, let it sit while a kettle of water boiled. Then poured that down. Works like a charm! As soon as I tell my husband, he is sure to say "I told you so" about the peelings going down the drain. But I fixed it myself. You live, you learn.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kerry Lee Pineiro, 61, Seminole, Florida Drunk Florida woman, 61, clobbered hubby for sex refusal After her husband refused to have sex with her, a 61-year- old Florida woman punched her spouse in the face before twice kneeing him in the groin, according to police who arrested the woman for domestic battery. As detailed in a criminal complaint, a drunk Kerry Lee Pineiro last night clobbered her husband inside the couple’s condominium in Seminole. Pineiro, cops charge, became “upset” with the 60-year-old victim “after he would not have sex with her.” After punching her husband in the eye, Pineiro kneed him in the groin when he sought to keep her from driving away drunk from their home, investigators allege. Pineiro is also accused of kneeing her spouse in the groin a second time and then kneeing him in the thigh. When questioned by a cop, Pineiro said she had “zero story,” adding that she wanted to go to jail. En route to the county lockup, Pineiro, seen above in an old Facebook photo, denied striking her husband. Charged with domestic battery, a misdemeanor, Pineiro spent the night in jail before a judge released her today on her own recognizance. She has been ordered to wear a “continuous alcohol monitor” during the duration of her criminal case. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Trish Re: Ezine Dear Webby, Can you please tell me what Ezine means, I'm sure there are other people who also are not so knowledgeable on internet speak.

After swiping the card, she loudly called out to her manager, "Mr. Allen, what do I do if it says 'reject'?" As the women's faces reddened and customers turned to look, Mr. Allen, also the cook, calmly walked out from the kitchen.

"Because all the two of you ever cared about was drinking. You were either stone drunk or hung over. You didn't have a sober day in your marriage." said St. Peter. "That's not true!" pleaded the couple. "Really, now." said St. Peter. "What's your wife's name?" "Sherry", said the man "See, you even married a woman named after a drink!" said St. Peter just as he released a trap door, sending them straight down to hell. Then he a told the second couple they couldn't get in to Heaven, either. "Why not?" asked the second husband. "Because all you ever cared about was making money, and you didn't care how you did it. You would cheat anybody, anytime to make your fortune." said St. Peter. "You even cheated your own brothers and sisters out of their inheritance!" "That's not true!" pleaded the husband. "Oh, really?" queried St. Peter "What's your wife's name?" "Penny", said the husband. "See?" said St. Peter, "You even have wife named after money." At which point he released the trap door sending them down to hell. The third husband, grinning, said to his wife, "Well, Fanny, I'm sure glad we were not interested in booze or money!"

Arriving at the fraternity house, he knocked on the door. After several minutes of knocking, a sleepy voice drifted down from a second floor window, "Whadoya want?" "Does Jimmy Duncan live here?" asked the father. "Yeah!" replied the voice.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by John Thomas Lindsey, 47, Charlotte, N.C. North Carolina pastor arrested, charged with 9 counts of robbery in string of heists suspected to be drug-motivated Thou shalt not steal. A Charlotte, N.C. pastor put one of the 10 commandments on the backburner and was ultimately arrested Wednesday in connection to a number of armed robberies on local businesses. John Thomas Lindsey, 47, a pastor at True Love Church of Refuge, was charged with 9 counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, 9 counts of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, wsoctv.com reports. Lindsey allegedly robbed two 7-Eleven stores, a Family Dollar store, a Circle K and two Sam’s Marts. He’s suspected to have fired a shot inside a Family Dollar store back in October. Surveillance footage in the stores shows a person resembling Lindsey engaged in the robberies. Sources told WSOC that drugs are suspected to be the motive for the crimes. Police zeroed in on Lindsey after being led to him by a 24- year-old man named Fernando Carillo-Hernandez, who was arrested Tuesday and charged with three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and three counts of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, according to WSOC. Carillo-Hernandez, who does not appear to be connected to True Love Church of Refuge, is allegedly responsible for robberies at Circle K locations. He also has a rap sheet that includes two drug-related convictions. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ann Re: Delivery has changed Dear Webby, can you enlighten me on something? I have mailwasher pro..thank god...and lately I am getting some "delivery has changed" emails returned from addresses that I have not sent to and don't know...they do have part of my address in them....I think this may be nasty... now what???? Thanks my dear...Hugggs Ann Dear Ann Just spam. Probably somebody, who has you in their address book, has a nasty infection and got harvested. If you ARE in the habit of sending mails to yourself as a lazy way to keep notes, get into the habit of putting a special mark like ~ into the front of the subject line. Then make a filter in Mailwasher to dump all mail pretending to be from you, that does not have that ~, into the trash, automatically, unseen. You will never seen that crap again, but your ~ prefixed memos come through nicely. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Gluten Free Potato Cakes By Litter Gitter [198 Posts, 638 Comments] Cook Time: approximately 15 minutes Total Time: approximately 20 minutes Yield: 3-6 servings Ingredients: 2 cups chilled creamed potatoes 1 Tbsp gluten free flour 1 egg bacon grease Steps: Mix flour with potatoes. Whisk egg. Stir egg into potato mixture. Place bacon grease in frying pan. Heat enough to cover the bottom of the pan well. Remove excess. Drop tablespoons of mixture into hot bacon drippings. Fry on medium heat until golden brown on each side. Serve hot. I am usually suspicious about supposedly gluten free flour, so I use simple instant mashed potatoes, which are basically just dried mashed potatoes, instead of flour. And naturally, I brown some fine cut onions in the bacon grease. That makes a HUGE improvement! The recipe is totally flexible. In season I chop some parsley or chives into it. A timid sprinkle of garlic powder is also nice, and of course salt and pepper. Have FUN! DearWebby
Janitor gets revenge when shoveling snow!
____________________________________________________ Suffering from a bad case of the flu, a man phoned his doctor to get an appointment. When he was told scheduled date of the appointment, he became outraged and bellowed, "Three weeks? The doctor can't see me for three weeks? I could well be dead by then!" Calmly, the receptionist replied, "If so, could you have your wife call to cancel the appointment?" ____________________________________________________
I love the little bonsai forests.
Just before the public viewing at a funeral parlor, a widow notices her deceased husband's hairpiece is flapping in the breeze caused by the air conditioner. "This won't do!" She orders the director to take care of the problem. He assures her that he will take care of it, if she'll just wait in the outer office for ten minutes. She leaves and comes back after exactly 600 seconds. Sure enough, her husband's hair is all in place. A month later, the widow is reviewing the bill for the funeral and she notices there was no charge for the hair problem. She calls to inquire as to why. She is told that it was "on the house." "Nonsense," she retorts, "you expended time and materials and I will compensate you for it. Now, give me a price!" "Ok, madam", the funeral director wearily agrees. He holds the phone away and hollers across the room, "Hey, Charlie, how much did those three nails cost to put that toupee in place last month?"
