______________________________________________________ I don't really trust a sane person. --- Lyle Alzado (1949 - 1992) Getting caught is the mother of invention. --- Robert Byrne One forgives to the degree that one loves. --- Francois de La Rochefoucauld It's not the years in your life but the life in your years that counts. --- Adlai Stevenson-Nightingale ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Lilly for this story: I have changed my system for labeling homemade freezer meals. I used to carefully note in large clear letters, "Meatloaf" or "Pot Roast" or "Steak and Vegetables or "Chicken and Dumplings" or "Beef Pot Pie." However, I used to get very frustrated when I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner because he never asked for any of those things. So, I decided to stock the freezer with what he really likes. If you look in my freezer now you'll see a whole new set of labels. You'll find dinners with neat, legible tags that say: "Whatever," "Anything," "I Don't Know," "I Don't Care," "Something Good," or "Food." My frustration is reduced because no matter what my husband replies when I ask him what he wants for dinner, I know that it will be there waiting. ______________________________________________________ A man had a terrible accident. His manhood was mangled and torn from his body. The doctor reassured him that modern medicine made it possible for his manhood to be rebuilt, but insurance didn't cover the expense. It was considered cosmetic. He had three choices - small for $3,500; medium for $6,500 and large for $14,000. The man was sure he'd want a medium or large. The doctor suggested that he discuss it with his wife privately before a final decision was made. The doctor left the room and while he was gone the man called his wife and told her their options. The doctor returned and found the man looking very sad. "Did you make a decision?" the doctor asked. "Yes," said the man. "She'd rather remodel the kitchen!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

Police said Aquib Ahmed and a 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, operated as a ‘twisted tag team’ as they subjected the woman, who is in her 20s, to ‘a disgusting, heartless attack’. The pair broke into a house in the Fir Vale area of Sheffield in March last year looking for drugs and threatening the man and his daughter inside, South Yorkshire Police said. Hunt for cyclist who sexually assaults women while riding past them But they realised they had targeted the wrong house as the occupants had no criminal or drugs connections. The pair returned three days later when they subjected the young woman to ‘a disgusting, heartless attack’. Detective Constable David Devey said: ‘They returned to the house, purely for their own sexual gratification, where they threatened the man and his daughter at gunpoint before they each raped the young woman repeatedly. ‘Ahmed told the man and his daughter he’d kill them both if they reported what happened to police.’ Temporary Detective Inspector Anna Sedgwick who led the investigation, said: ‘The victims quite rightly viewed their home as a safe place, where they could relax and spend time with each other. Police confirmed that Ahmed, of Barnsley Road, Fir Vale, Sheffield was jailed for 20 years on Wednesday after pleading guilty to two counts of rape and possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence at an earlier hearing. The 16-year-old boy was jailed for six years after pleading guilty to the same offences. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ellen Re: PayPal split payment Dear Webby, Can I split an invoice into two separae PayPal payments, one to me and one to my partner, by putting another PayPal button onto the Thank-You page? Ellen Dear Ellen Technically you could do that. But when PayPal catches you, then you and your partner will suddenly, without any warning, have no more PayPal accounts, and extreme difficulty getting new ones. PayPal is very easy to get along with, as long as you follow the rules. Their rules are quite clear about that: No split payments. I don't know their exact reasoning for that rule, but I have a hunch they were told by the IRS to be strict about that. That means, YOU have to report the income for the whole amount, file a W9 for your partner, and report paying your partner. You can do it with two totally separate invoices, with absolutely no detectable link between them. For the same legal reason, you also can not collect for somebody else. You have to collect for a company, and then let the company pay your partner. Have FUN! DearWebby

Coming out of church, Mrs. Peterson asked her husband, "Do you think that Johnson girl is tinting her hair?" "I didn't even see her," admitted Mr. Peterson. "And that dress Mrs. Hansen was wearing," continued Mrs. Peterson, "Really, don't tell me you think that's the proper costume for a mother of two." "I'm afraid I didn't notice that either," said Mr. Peterson. "Oh, for heaven's sake," snapped Mrs. Peterson. "A lot of good it does YOU to go to church." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Debt Consolidation Warning Debt consolidation can offer a great opportunity for people that have amassed large amounts of credit card debt at unfavorable interest rates. You can get lower, more manageable monthly payments and reduce the number of bills you have to pay each month. The problem many people have is that they then start using their newly paid off credit cards again and end up with even more debt. If you don't change your spending habits, debt consolidation merely enables you to get further in debt. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Dave went on a business trip for a few days. When he returned, his wife reported that the dog really missed him. "She spent every night at the front door, awaiting your return," she said. "What an example of true love," Dave replied. "I wonder if you'd be that concerned about me?" "Honey," she answered, "if you were gone overnight, and I didn't know where you were, you can be sure I'd be waiting for you at the front door."

Bill and Marla decided that the only way to pull off a Sunday afternoon quickie with their ten-year-old son in the apartment was to send him out on the balcony and order him to report on all the neighborhood activities. The boy began his commentary as his parents put their plan into operation. "There's a car being towed from the parking lot," he said. "An ambulance just drove by." A few moments passed. "Looks like the Andersons have company," he called out, "Matt's riding a new bike and the Coopers are having sex." Mom and Dad shot up in bed. "How do you know that?" the startled father asked. "Johnny Cooper is standing out on the balcony too," his son replied. ___________________________________________________

"Does the hole go all the way through?" "Yes." "Did it hurt?" "Just a little." "Did they stick a needle through your ears?" "No, they used a special gun." Silence followed, and then one solemn voice called out, "How far away did they stand?" And Bubba asked: "Did they get both ears with one shot?" ______________________________________________________ During my surgical residency I was called out of a sound sleep to the emergency room. Unshaven and with tousled hair, I showed up with an equally unpresentable medical student. In the ER we encountered the on-call medical resident and his student, both neatly attired in clean white lab coats. The resident said to his student, "You can always tell the surgeons by their absolute disregard for appearance." Two evenings later, I was at a banquet when called to the ER to suture a minor laceration. I was stitching away, wearing a tuxedo, when I encountered that same medical resident. He looked at me, then said to his student, "Sure is sensitive to criticism, isn't he?" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Clown fish _____________________________________________________

Jefferson County Sheriff's officers and U.S. Marshals were tipped off that inmates were escaping the federal prison in Beaumont, Texas, and crossing onto a rancher's land that backs up to the federal complex. The inmates would then pick up contraband that was dropped off for them and bring it back to the prison. After authorities set up surveillance on Wednesday, they spotted a truck pulling onto the private property and dropping off a large bag. Shortly after, Joshua Hansen, an inmate serving time for narcotics charges, was seen running from prison grounds, grabbing the bag and making his way back when police arrested him. Inside the duffel bag, police found three bottles of Brandy, one bottle of Whiskey, multiple bags of Buglar tobacco, prepackaged snacks and a large amount of home-cooked food, including BBQ sausage and fried chicken. Hansen, 25, is charged with escape and possession of marijuana, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. He is currently on a federal hold. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ormond Re: Spreadsheet to web page Dear Webby, Is there an easy way to transfer part of a spreadsheet to a web page?

Many people get into the mindset of "I'll pay it off later" or "I'm already in debt, what will a little debt hurt?". They keep using credit cards for everyday expenses so they don't feel broke and don't have to change their spending patterns. Retire your credit cards, set up a budget and start paying with cash. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ The local parish had a fairly new priest. He had wonderful, innovative ideas that were, for the most part accepted by the congregation. His mentor - a "higher ranking" priest came for a visit - to see how he was doing. After looking the parish over, the senior priest said, "Father John, your idea of a drive through confessional is wonderful. That makes it so convenient for your church members. And, Father John, it was a really good idea to have the confessional open 24 hours a day, for those who work shift work. However, Father John... that flashing neon sign that says "TOOT and TELL or GO to HELL" ... well, it has GOT TO GO!!

A man observed a sign in the window of a restaurant that read, "Unique Breakfast" so he walked in and sat down. The waitress brought him his coffee and asked him what he wanted. "What's your Unique Breakfast?" he asked inquisitively. "Baked tongue of chicken!" she proudly replied. "Baked tongue of chicken?...baked tongue of chicken! Do you have any idea how disgusting that is? I would never even consider eating anything that came out of a chicken's mouth!" he fumed. Undaunted, the waitress asked, "What would you like then?" "Just bring me some scrambled eggs," the man replied. ___________________________________________________

Now, she’s filing a lawsuit. Why, you may ask? Well, according to KCBS-TV, the comb is a product predominantly stolen by African-Americans — and according to Grundy, the chain was engaging in racial discrimination by putting the comb behind a locked case. “I originally got the product from the Walmart in Riverside … and it was such a good product, I wanted to introduce it to my older children,” Grundy said at a news conference Friday. “They didn’t have any more at the original Walmart that I got it from, so I went to my neighborhood one, and that’s when I noticed all of the African-American products was locked up under lock and key.” “We have different textured hair than other people,” she added. “I just feel that we should be treated equally,” noting that blacks shouldn’t be treated differently “just because of a complexion.” Walmart said they don't care about skin color, their computer just notices which items get stolen the most. If an item never gets stolen, then it won't be locked up. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Clyde Re: Folder tasks Dear Webby, I have had no trouble before trying to print pictures~~until today~~I click on start~~then My Pictures~~ when pictures appear, I select the one I want to print.

A couples happy married life almost went on the rocks because of the presence in the household of old Aunt Emma. For seventeen long years she lived with them, always crotchety, always demanding. Finally the old girl died. On the way back from the cemetery, the husband confessed to his wife, "Darling, if I didn't love you so much, I don't think I would have put up with having your Aunt Emma in the house all those years." His wife looked at him aghast. "My Aunt Emma!" she cried. "I thought she was YOUR Aunt Emma!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Discretionary Vs. Mandatory Spending When making a budget, be sure to identify Discretionary and Mandatory expenses. Mandatory expenses are things like health insurance and rent that you cannot afford to do without. Discretionary expenses are things that aren't crucial to you or your families existence like a NetFlix subscription or eating out. When times get rough financially or when you want to save money for something, you can start by eliminating discretionary expenses from your monthly budget.

PETA upset at Six Flags roach contest GURNEE, Ill. --People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants Six Flags Great America to scrap its Halloween-themed cockroach-eating promotion. A spokeswoman for the animal rights organization says the contest at the amusement park's FrightFest is "gratuitously cruel." The park in Gurnee, Ill., is joining other Six Flags parks in offering unlimited line-jumping privileges to anyone who eats a live Madagascar hissing cockroach. The bugs are up to three inches long. The contest begins next month. Amusement park officials are defending their menu choice. Great America spokesman Jim Taylor says the bugs are nutritious, high in protein and fat free. It is rumored that since the bugs routinely beat PETA officials in IQ tests, the bugs may contain intelligence boosting proteins. ___________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Do not do unto others as you would that they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same. --- George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950) ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A 60-year-old millionaire was getting married and threw a big wedding reception. The big day arrived, and he got married to his stunning 23-year-old bride in the vast garden of his 50,000-square-foot mansion. Champagne was flowing and an enormous team of waiters was flitting about serving the finest hors-d'oeuvres in the land. Naturally, the millionaire's less wealthy friends couldn't help but feel jealous. In a quiet moment, one of them asked him how he landed such a young beauty. "Simple", grinned the millionaire, "I faked my age." His friends were really amazed and asked him how old he told her he was. "87 !" he replied. ----------- I am not a millionaire, yet, but if she can fake "not too old", I can fake 87.

"How much do you charge?" "Eighty dollars per visit, replied the doctor." "I'll sleep on it," said Bubba. Six months later the doctor met Bubba on the street. "Why didn't you ever come to see about those fears you were having?" asked the psychiatrist. "Well, eighty bucks a visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money I went and bought me a new pickup!" "Is that so! And how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?"

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Chris for this story: My son, Mitchell, a kindergartner, practices spelling with magnetic letters on the refrigerator: cat, dog, dad, and mom have been proudly displayed for all to see. One morning while getting ready for the day, Mitchell bounded into the room with his arms outstretched. In his hands were three magnetic letters: "G"-"O"-"D." "Look what I spelled, Mom!" Mitch exclaimed, a proud smile on his face. "That's wonderful!" I praised him. "Now go put them on the fridge so Dad can see when he gets home tonight." That Catholic education is certainly having an impact, I thought, happily. Just then, a little voice called from the kitchen. "Mom? How do you spell 'zilla?" _____________________________________________________ From Nancy: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Justin Llewelyn, 33, Salt Lake City, Utah Suspect in manhunt said he'd die before going back to jail, got rattled with PIT maneuvre Justin Llewelyn, the man who sparked a five-day manhunt after allegedly shooting a homeowner and firing at two police officers, told others he would rather be killed by officers than go to jail, police say. "(Llewelyn) told numerous people that he was not going to go to jail and he would do 'suicide by cop,'" a Salt Lake County Jail report states. Despite those menacing threats, Llewelyn was taken into custody Wednesday without any gunfire following a chase through Utah County. A deputy sustained minor injuries when he T-boned the pickup truck Llewelyn was driving. "My entire thought process was (to) get this guy stopped any way I can," Utah County sheriff's deputy Justin Mortensen said Thursday, adding he had been told the suspect was likely armed. Llewelyn, 33, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of three counts of attempted murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, possession of a firearm by a restricted person, failing to stop for police and theft by receiving stolen property. On Saturday morning, a Unified police officer attempted to stop and talk to Llewelyn about his possible involvement in car burglaries in the area, the report states. Llewelyn ran off. And while the officer was running after him, "the officer heard what he believed were gunshots" coming from Llewelyn. A short time later, a second officer confronted Llewelyn who "began firing a handgun in the officer's direction," the report states. Llewelyn again ran off, this time into the home of Steve Smith, police say. Smith said he found Llewelyn in his garage trying to steal his car. That's when Smith said Llewelyn fired multiple shots at him, striking the homeowner in the chest and side. Investigators launched a large manhunt for Llewelyn that lasted for five days. Between 3:30 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. Wednesday, the Violent Fugitive Apprehension Strike Force — a team consisting of U.S. marshals, Unified police and other local agencies — spotted Llewelyn sitting in a stolen pickup truck at Bicentennial Park, 1600 E. 1440 South, in Provo, said Unified Police Lt. Brian Lohrke. He called it good investigative work and not just coincidence that the strike force spotted Llewelyn in Utah County, but he declined to go into detail. "He's parked and stationary and the detectives are putting together a plan to take him into custody right there because he was still parked," Lohrke said. The strike force called the Utah County Sheriff's Office to have deputies get in position should the man flee, he said. While that was happening, Llewelyn started to drive away. When he got onto State Street, the strike force attempted to pull him over, Lohrke said. That's when Llewelyn fled. The ensuing 20-minute, 10-mile chase went south on U.S. 89 through Springville into Spanish Fork. In Spanish Fork, Llewelyn turned his truck around and started heading north on Main Street toward I-15, according to Lohrke. At that point, Mortensen sought to make a PIT manuever on the pickup truck, Lohrke said, intentionally bumping the fleeing vehicle in an attempt to get it to spin out. In this case, the vehicles crashed, causing heavy damage to both the police car and the truck. As soon as the truck came to a stop, a large number of officers with guns drawn swarmed on the vehicle. No other motorists were injured. "He pretty much gave up at that point. I think he was a little rattled. But detectives were on him pretty quick," Lohrke said. Llewelyn was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital before being booked into jail. Mortensen, who has worked in Utah County law enforcement for 20 years, said he "just happened to be in the right spot" Wednesday afternoon. Mortensen had a sore, bandaged wrist and cuts on his arms. He said his face felt sunburned from his air bag's deployment, but he suffered no broken bones and would do the same maneuver again today, if needed. Llewelyn surrendered, Lohrke said, despite telling others that he was willing to die at the hands of police, and despite officers spotting a handgun inside the truck. Usually, with a pit maneuvre the chaser gently nudges the fugitive's rear bumper and gets him to spin out and hit a tree or bushes. In this case, the chaser was not following the fugitive, but going in the opposite direction, at high speed. So he crossed over and T-boned the fugitive. The fugitive was "a bit rattled" and did not resist arrest after that. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Yuko Re: MalwareBytes Dear Webby, I love Malwarebytes, but yesterday's update seems to be buggy.

Beidari, 33, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Harrisburg, PA, man arrested for attacking nurses, guards at Hershey Medical Center A Harrisburg man already accused of attempting to murder his unborn child is facing additional charges after allegedly attacking two nurses and a security guard at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, according to Derry Township police. Ibrahim T. Beidari, 33, of the 7300 block of Cobble Stone Drive, is chargd with aggravated assault, strangulation, possessing the instruments of crime, and terroristic threats stemming from an incident that occurred Tuesday at the Medical Center. Police say Beidari physically assaulted the staff members, using a razor blade in one case. According to the criminal complaint, one of the victims told police she was going to a supply room to get the suspect some items to clean up with. When the nurse opened the door, Beidari allegedly pushed his way into the room, grabbed the nurse, and wrapped his arm around her throat while holding a razor blade to the side of her neck. During the struggle, the nurse sustained three small lacerations to her right middle finger, police say. Another nurse arrived and attempted to calm Beidari down, police say. She then attempted to grab the razor blade from him. During the struggle, she received a cut to her left index finger, but was able to successfully remove the razor from Beidari’s hand, the criminal complaint says. Beidari then allegedly grabbed a medical scalpel and held it to the nurse’s throat. A security guard entered the room, told Beidari to drop the scalpel, and threatened to spray him with pepper spray, the criminal complaint says. Beidari refused to comply, allegedly saying “I’m going to kill her,” while continuing to hold the scalpel to the nurse’s neck, according to the criminal complaint. The security guard then sprayed Beidari with pepper spray and attempted to disarm him, but Beidari stabbed the guard with the scalpel, giving him a puncture wound to his left forearm, the criminal complaint says. Additional security then arrived and successfully restrained Beidari. Beidari was transferred to the Dauphin County Judicial Booking Center for arraignment. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Carol Re: Slow Computer Dear Webby, I enjoy reading your site, I learn a lot from you.

My next-door neighbor and I frequently borrow things from each other. Not long ago, when I requested his ladder, he told me he had lent it to his son. Recalling a saying my grandmother used to repeat, I recited, "You should never lend anything to your kids, because you will never get it back." With that, he responded, "Tell you the truth, it's not even my ladder. It's my dad's." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thrifty Reusable Napkins Instead of paper towels, we use washcloths for napkins.

These two students bumped into the engineering student the next day, who looked quite refreshed.

Augustine, Raytown, Missouri Man claims he mistook neighbor’s house for his own, killed homeowner thinking he was an intruder A Missouri man was charged with involuntary manslaughter after he allegedly went to his neighbor’s home, thinking it was his own, then choked the homeowner to death. Police believe Michael G. Augustine was drunk at the time he allegedly killed 60-year-old Clifton King, according to WDAF. King died in his front yard Friday night, after he came to his door to find Augustine, one of his neighbors, trying to come inside. Neighbors told WDAF that Augustine, who lives further down the block, believed that it was his home, and that King had broken in. During the incident, Augustine called 911 to report that he had an intruder in a choke hold. But when officers arrived at his address, no one was there. They later found both men about a block up the street at King's house. According to court documents, police believe Augustine was drunk because his speech was incoherent and officers noted a strong smell of alcohol. A neighbor, who did not want her face to appear on camera because the incident has made her concerned for her own safety, said she watched paramedics try to revive King - a military veteran - for about half an hour. "He served our country and that was not an honorable way to treat him," the woman said. "I think that it’s sad. It’s sad! Someone had to give up their life because someone was so messed up they didn’t know it wasn’t their home." Other neighbors said that King had been homeless at one time in his life because he couldn't find a job, but since moving on the block he was friendly and kind. Some feel guilty about not immediately calling police themselves when they heard the commotion. They said there are often arguments on the block, and some say it's better for them not to get involved. Prosecutors have charged Augustine with first degree involuntary manslaughter, but neighbors said he's already posted bond and moved out of the area. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ann Re: CrapCleaner Dear Webby, I have been using ccleaner and just love it, Is there a way I can set it to run automatically???

Outside the building, wandering around the grounds, they spotted and apprehended a suspect. The police called the Security Director for the company and said, "We caught the culprit, an old guy. He tried to pass as an employee, but he knows nothing about your business." The Security Director said, "Oh, that's probably the president of the company.

As per the doctor's instructions, it read, "Do not take with broccoli." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Cheyenne Rose Antoine, 21, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan 7-year sentence for killer in case with Facebook selfie evidence Saskatoon police say a Facebook selfie was instrumental in a murder investigation that ended in a guilty plea and a seven- year prison sentence for the killer. On Monday morning, 21-year-old Cheyenne Rose Antoine pleaded guilty to killing 18-year-old Brittney Gargol, who was discovered fatally injured on a road near the Saskatoon landfill two years ago. Antoine says Gargol was her best friend and they had been out drinking on the night of her death and got into an argument. Antoine says she doesn't remember strangling her friend to death, but doesn't dispute that she killed her. Antoine was initially charged with second-degree murder, but pleaded guilty to manslaughter inside a Saskatoon courtroom. She was sentenced to seven years behind bars — a joint submission request from the Crown and defence — early Monday afternoon. In court, Crown prosecutor Robin Ritter outlined a complicated investigation that took nearly two years to complete. One key piece of evidence was a belt, believed to be the murder weapon, that was found lying by Gargol's body. A selfie on Facebook, posted hours before Gargol's body was found, showed Antoine wearing that same belt, which ultimately made her a suspect in the crime. Police used more Facebook posts to develop a timeline of Antoine and Gargol's movements on the night of Gargol's death. "It's quite remarkable how the police developed this information," said Ritter. The prosecutor said Antoine also used social media to lead police on a wild goose chase. Several hours after Gargol's death, the accused posted on Facebook, asking where Brittney was. She also told police the pair went to several bars, and Gargol eventually met an unknown man and they left together. Police were able to poke holes in Antoine's story that the pair went to the Colonial Pub and Grill after reviewing security tape evidence that showed they were never at the bar. Ultimately, a tip led police to a witness, who said Antoine confessed to the killing that night. After getting drunk, Antoine told the friend that she hit Gargol and strangled her. She showed up at her friend's house, and hysterically confessed to how she had hurt her friend. Ultimately, she told a friend she killed Gargol after getting into a fight. "No doubt this young women has issues...and because of those issues she is dangerous," said Ritter. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Eileen Re: Multiple file explorer panes Dear Webby, You explained once how to trick Windows into showing more than one pane in the file explorer. I know, I can have more than one file explorer open, but your system, which I had on my last computer, is a lot easier and takes less screen space. Unfortunately I forgot how to set that up, but I desperately need it now for a major sorting job.

Once you have highlighted a folder on the left, you can slide it out of sight and even line up totally different drives. Don't click folders or drives on the left, just the plus signs in front of them, if you want them to expand.

I snorkeled for another 40 minutes. So did he. I felt very flattered and, as I took off my fins, I asked him coyly why he had stayed in the water for so long.

A 66-year-old Grayslake woman with a history of trying to sneak onto airline flights managed to slip past security and took a flight from O’Hare International Airport to London earlier this week. Chicago police say Marilyn Hartman boarded the flight Sunday afternoon without a ticket. Sources tell CBS 2 Hartman slipped by a distracted TSA agent in O’Hare’s Terminal 3, somehow made it to the international terminal and slipped past a busy gate agent to board a British Airways flight to London. Sources say O’Hare security video shows Hartman had been wandering the airport for two days and no one questioned her. Once on the London-bound plane, sources say, Hartman hid in a bathroom and eventually walked out and found a seat. When she couldn’t produce a passport Monday at Heathrow Airport, officials sent her back to O’Hare, where she was taken into custody Thursday. Hartman was charged Friday with one misdemeanor count of criminal trespass and one felony count of theft greater than $500, Chicago police said in a news release. She was expected to appear in bond court Saturday. In a statement, the Transportation Security Administration said: “This matter is subject to an ongoing investigation and TSA is working closely with our law enforcement and airline partners in that effort. “During the initial investigation it was determined that the passenger was screened at the security checkpoint before boarding a flight. Upon learning of the incident TSA, and its aviation partners took immediate action to review security practices throughout the airport.” Hartman has been arrested several times on trespassing charges for trying to sneak onto planes at O’Hare and Midway, including trying to board a plane at Midway without a ticket in July 2015 less than 24 hours after being released from jail. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dave Re: framedyn.dll missing Dear Webby, Thank you for providing such pleasure and assistance.

"Yes, Johnny? What can I do for you?" Seizing the opportunity, Johnny asked, "God? What is a million years like to you?" Knowing that Johnny could not understand the concept of infinity, God responded in a manner to which Johnny could relate. He said, "A million years to me, Johnny, is like a minute." Johnny said, "Well, then, what's a million dollars like to you?" "A million dollars to me, Johnny, is like a penny," God said. Johnny said, "Wow!" then he got an idea. He said, "You are so generous, God. Can I have just one of your pennies?" God replied, "Sure thing, Johnny! Just a minute."

Thanks to Martin for this story: You gotta love this old guy! I was at the mall the other day eating at the food court. I noticed an old man watching a teenager sitting next to him. The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors, green, red, orange, and blue. The old man kept staring at him. The teenager would look and find the old man staring every time. When the teenager had enough, he sarcastically asked, "What's the matter, old man, never done anything wild in your life?" The old man did not bat an eye in his response, "Got drunk once and had sex with a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my son." ___________________________________________________

Sweat, Jr., a member of the Texas House of Representatives, was asked about his position on whiskey. What follows is his exact answer (taken from the Political Archives of Texas): "If you mean whiskey, the devil's brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean that evil drink that topples Christian men and women from the pinnacles of righteous and gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation, shame, despair, helplessness, and hopelessness, then, my friend, I am opposed to it with every fiber of my being. However, if by whiskey you mean the lubricant of conversation, the philosophic juice, the elixir of life, the liquid that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if you mean Christmas cheer, the stimulating sip that puts a little spring in the step of an elderly gentleman on a frosty morning; if you mean that drink that enables man to magnify his joy, and to forget life's great tragedies and heartbreaks and sorrow; if you mean that drink the sale of which pours into Texas treasuries untold millions of dollars each year, that provides tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitifully aged and infirm, to build the finest highways, hospitals, universities, and community colleges in this nation, then my friend, I am absolutely, unequivocally in favor of it.

For a year, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. He even kept a log of the "conversation." Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife had a chat with her next door neighbor. "My husband spends his nights ... calling out to owls," she said. "That's odd," the neighbor replied. "So does my husband." Then it dawned on them. _____________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tnuza Jamal Hassan, 19, St. Paul, Minnesota Muslim student believing fake news and angry with Trump tries to burn down a Catholic college Hassan was arrested after trying to burn down St. Catherine’s University in St. Paul. She was upset after hearing that Trump’s push to escalate the War on Terror resulted in a school being bombed in Iraq. There’s no actual proof that happened, but Hassan wanted to retaliate nevertheless. She also tried to burn down a university building housing a daycare with over 30 children inside. A former college student from Minneapolis has been charged with intentionally setting four fires at St. Catherine’s University in St. Paul to avenge Muslims killed in US bombings in the Middle East. A criminal complaint alleges 19-year-old Tnuza Jamal Hassan confessed to investigators she started the fires on Wednesday because she had been reading about the US military destroying schools in Iraq or Afghanistan and felt she should do the same thing. Hassan is charged with first-degree arson. ‘Hassan said this was the same thing that happened in the “Muslim land” and nobody cares if they get hurt, so why not do this?’ the complaint stated. The complaint, cited by Minneapolis Star Tribune, says Hassan told police her intent was to hurt people and to burn the Catholic university to the ground. The teenager was also quoted as telling police and arson investigators: ‘You guys are lucky that I don’t know how to build a bomb because I would have done that.’ On Friday, Hassan appeared in Ramsey County District Court and was charged with a single count of first-degree arson, reported Pioneer Press. She was then remanded back to the county jail. Officials say a sprinkler system prevented a dormitory fire from spreading to a day care center where 33 children and eight adults were present. The university said in a press release on Thursday that the fires were ‘small and quickly contained, and no one was injured. There was damage to furnishings, but no structural damage to the attacked buildings.’ Police obtained surveillance video from the university, which allowed them to track Hassan to Crandall Hall where she was ultimately taken into custody in a student lounge after a room- to-room search. According to the college, the 19-year-old was last enrolled at St Catherine’s in the fall of 2017. Hassan reportedly dropped out because her family were planning to travel to Ethiopia. Officials said between 11.40am and 2pm, Hassan torched a chair at St Mary’s residence hall and burned a few smaller items, including books, toilet paper and sanitary napkins in women’s bathrooms on campus. Following her arrest, Hassan allegedly told police that she had written a letter to her roommates containing ‘radical ideas about supporting Muslims and bringing back the caliphate,’ the complaint said. The letter frightened the roommates, who handed it over to campus security. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ilah Re: Picture compression Dear Webby, This question has been addressed before but I did not have the brains to print your response and put it on file. IT will be filed this time. How do you compress pictures? We have a large number of snaps of what has to be the world's most beautiful, intelligent and entertaining kitty and we want to send copies to friends and family. I do not know what we would do without your Humor Letter. It gets the day off to a great start. Ilah Dear Ilah When you open a picture with a graphics program, like for example Paint Shop Pro, you can re-size it. For example, straight out of the camera it is 4000x3000, for email it should be 640 x 480. So, first you change the physical size and save kitty27.jpg as kitty27-640.jpg. That preserves the original for your archive. That resizing alone might be enough to allow fast sending. You can still go a step further by compressing it. Now, when you save kitty27-640.jpg, you can click on the options and select the compression ratio. Compression does not change the visible size, it just changes the color depth, and the file size. Usually a compression of 10 - 15% is usually OK, but over 15% pictures tend to look a bit washed out. Keep in mind that compression is a one way street. Once pixels have been washed out, you can not get them back from Santa Claus and put them back in there. That is why you keep a pure archive copy. If you got too carried away with the compression, you can always start again from the big original. Have FUN! DearWebby

From a 2006 Bonehead Award: When moviemakers told Gallatin, Tennessee, Mayor Don Wright they wanted to use his office to film a scene with a superheroine, he kindly obliged. But Wright was startled when the movie's title, "Thong Girl 3," and his role in its making was splashed across the front page of Friday's editions of the Nashville Tennessean newspaper. "I had no idea what the movie was about," Wright said on Friday. "They told me it was about a superhero woman and there was no nudity or offensive stuff in it. Other than that, I really didn't have a clue." According to the Thong Girl Web site, heroine Lana Layonme wears a red thong under a cape as she flies over Nashville repelling a villain who is trying to turn country music performers into rappers. The movie is the third in a series released only on DVD. "They said it was family friendly," said Wright who let the locally-based crew use his office for two hours. "We've had a lot of movies filmed in this area during the past few years. In fact, I think Sally Field was in one of them. Anyhow, I thought it was good for business."

"How are you, darling?" it said. "What kind of a day are you having?" "Oh, mother," said the housewife, breaking into bitter tears, "I've had such a bad day. The baby won't eat and the washing machine broke down. I haven't had a chance to go shopping, and besides, I've just sprained my ankle and I have to hobble around. On top of that, the house is a mess and I'm supposed to have two couples to dinner tonight." The mother was shocked and was at once all sympathy. "Oh, darling," she said, "sit down, relax, and close your eyes. I'll be over in half an hour. I'll do your shopping, clean up the house, and cook your dinner for you. I'll feed the baby and I'll call a repairman I know who'll be at your house to fix the washing machine promptly. Now stop crying. I'll do everything. In fact, I'll even call George at the office and tell him he ought to come home and help out for once." "George?" said the housewife. "Who's George?" "Why, George! Your husband! ....Is this 555-1374? "No, this is 555-1375." "Oh, I'm sorry. I guess I have the wrong number." There was a short pause and the housewife said, "Does this mean you're not coming over?"

Do you still have it? Can you print it again, please? Thanks Myrna Sure, Myrna, here it is. It must be an all time favorite, because I remember requests for it, when the Humor Letter was still in fax format, before the Internet. Dear Sir: "I am writing in response to your request for additional information in Block 3 of the accident report form. I put "poor planning" as the cause of my accident. You asked for a fuller explanation and I trust the following details will be sufficient. I am a bricklayer by trade. On the day of the accident, I was working alone on the roof of a new six story building. When I completed my work, found that I had some bricks left over which, when weighed later were found to be slightly in excess of 500 lbs. Rather than carry the bricks down by hand, I decided to lower them in a barrel by using a pulley,which was attached to the side of the building on the sixth floor. Securing the rope at ground level, I went up to the roof, swung the barrel out and loaded the bricks into it. Then I went down and untied the rope, holding it tightly to ensure a slow descent of the bricks. You will note in Block 11 of the accident report form that I weigh 135 lbs. Due to my surprise at being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence of mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a rapid rate up the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel which was now proceeding downward at an equal, impressive speed. This explained the fractured skull, minor abrasions and the broken collar bone, as listed in section 3 of the accident report form. Slowed only slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stopping until the fingers of my right hand were two knuckles deep into the pulley. Fortunately by this time I had regained my presence of mind and was able to hold tightly to the rope, in spite of beginning to experience a great deal of pain. At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the ground and the bottom fell out of the barrel. Now devoid of the weight of the bricks, that barrel weighed approximately 50 lbs. I refer you again to my weight. As you can imagine, I began a rapid descent, down the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel coming up. This accounts for the two fractured ankles, broken tooth and several lacerations of my legs and lower body. Here my luck began to change slightly. The encounter with the barrel seemed to slow me enough to lessen my injuries when I fell into the pile of bricks and fortunately only three vertebrae were cracked. I am sorry to report, however, as I lay there on the pile of bricks, in pain, unable to move, I again lost my composure and presence of mind and let go of the rope and I lay there watching the empty barrel begin its journey back down onto me. This explains the two broken legs. I hope this answers your inquiry." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Saudi Arabia Sony2017 winner _____________________________________________________

Just wait until the autopsy, then you'll see that I was right." _____________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Cleophus Cooksey, 35, Phoenix, Arizona Serial killer caught in Arizona A man is under arrest in Phoenix, with authorities saying he is responsible for killing nine people in less than a month. The accused serial killer, Cleophus Cooksey, killed his parents on December 17, and after police investigated, they were able to link him to an additional seven murders in the Phoenix area. Most of the murders were in separate incidents in a three week span, and the victims have no apparent link. Cooksey appears to have engaged in a murderous crime spree with no rhyme or reason. Fox News reports. An Arizona man is accused of a stunning murder spree in which he killed nine people in three weeks — a rampage that would make him one of the most prolific serial killers in the state’s history. Cleophus Cooksey Jr., 35, was arrested on Dec. 17, 2017, after police responded to a call of shots fired in Phoenix. When officers arrived they found Cooksey’s mother and stepfather dead. Police said Thursday they did not link Cooksey to the other homicides until he was in custody. Police said investigators used shelling casings to link the murders. Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton said new technology allowed officers to determine the evidence was linked to the suspect quickly. Cooksey’s other alleged victims include the brother of his ex- girlfriend and various men and women of black, white and Hispanic race and ethnicity, AZ Central reported. The victims include: – Two men, Andrew Remillard, 27, and Parker Smith, 21, who were discovered dead Nov. 27. – One man, Salim Richards, 35, found critically wounded on Dec. 2, and later died at the scene. It was not immediately clear if Richards knew the suspect. Police said there were signs of robbery at the crime scene and a hangun was appeared to have been taken. – On Dec. 11, Jesus Bonifacio Real, 25, the brother of Cooksey’s former girlfriend, was murdered. – On Dec. 13, Latorrie Beckford, 29, was shot and killed. – On Dec. 16, 2017, Kristopher Cameron, 21, was discovered shot to death in a field. Police said Cameron appeared to have met with the suspect for a drug interaction. On the same day, Maria Villanueva, 43, was found dead. Villanueva was kidnapped from her car after the suspect approached her vehicle. The two drove off before Villanueva was found with signs of sexually assault and murdered, police said. – On Dec. 17, Rene Cooksey, 56, the suspect’s mother, and his stepfather, Edward Nunn, 54, were shot and killed. Cooksey was then arrested. Cooksey has a long criminal history, AZ Central reported. The suspect was convicted of manslaughter when he was 18. While in prison, he was found guilty of assaulting prison employees, drug possession and fighting. He was released from prison in January 2015 and received a DUI in November of that year. The suspect took up rapping following his prison release, going by the name “King Playbola.” he posted videos on YouTube showcasing his skills. Cooksey was arrested again in May 2016 on a “technical violation” and went back to prison. He was freed June 20, 2016, but was arrested and booked in December due to another arrest warrant. On July 28, 2017, Cooksey was released. Four months later, he allegedly engaged in the murderous spree. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dave Re: USB drive jumpers Dear Webby, Congratulations and thanks for a most useful newsletter.

A crumbling old church building needed remodeling, so, during his sermon, the preacher made an impassioned appeal looking directly at the richest man in town. At the end of the sermon, the rich man stood up and announced, "Pastor, I will contribute $1000." Just then, plaster fell from the ceiling and struck the rich man on the shoulder. He promptly stood back up and shouted, "Pastor, I will increase my donation to $5000." Before he could sit back down, plaster fell on him again, and this time he virtually screamed, "Pastor, I will double my last pledge." He sat down, and a larger chunk of plaster fell on his head. He stood up once more and hollered, "Pastor, I will give $20,000!" This prompted a deacon to shout, "Hit him again, Lord! Hit him again!"

At one point during a soccer game, the coach called one of his 7- year-old players aside and asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?" The little boy nodded in the affirmative. "Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?" The little boy nodded yes. "So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know, when a foul is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the referee, or call him a pecker-head. Do you understand all that?" Again the little boy nodded. He continued, "And when I take you out of the game so another boy gets a chance to play, it's not good sportsmanship to call your coach 'a fishbrain dumbass' is it?'' Again the little boy nodded. "Good," said the coach.

Both are from the Bronx. Santos is charged with attempted murder, assault and reckless endangerment, while Lopez is charged with reckless endangerment and reckless driving. The suspects were taken into custody Wednesday, just hours after police publicly identified them and released their photos. "We had over 20 tips on this in a very short time," NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said. "People were concerned." Lopez is reportedly the owner of the Mercedes and has at least three prior arrest. Santos has eight prior arrests, some of which are sealed because he was a juvenile. They were arrested on 144th Street between Eighth and Ninth avenues in Harlem. Police said they were in an apartment and tried to escape out a window. And this isn't the first time the suspects have pulled off a stunt like this. In 2016, police say Santos did a copycat move, nearly hitting officers and running a dozen red lights in Washington Heights. And just a day before the Times Square incident, police say Lopez fled a traffic stop in the same Mercedes, taking off on the sidewalk and nearly hitting officers and people. Additionally, they say officer discovered Lopez had souped up his car with a device that covered his back license plate during a traffic stop in June. "You hold down your brake and gas pedal and hit the gear as hard as you can," Boyce said. "It slows your brakes and you skid down the street. Idiots do it." The Times Square incident, which was caught on video, happened in the heart of the Crossroads of the World around 11:45 p.m. Saturday. Authorities say the officer approached a vehicle that was driving recklessly near 234 West 42nd Street, but the driver fled the scene after initially stopping. The black four-door sedan fled westbound on 42nd Street, towards Eighth Avenue, clipping the officer. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries to his legs and back. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Mark Re: Transfer data from old to new machine Dear Webby, My wife will soon be taking possession of a new PC with Windows10.

A man is driving home late one afternoon, and he is driving well above the speed limit. He notices a police car with its red lights on in his rear view mirror. He thinks "I can outrun this guy," so he floors it and the race is on. The cars are racing down the highway -- 60, 70, 80, 90 miles per hour. Finally, as his speedometer passes 100, the guy figures "what the heck," and gives up. He pulls over to the curb. The police officer gets out of his cruiser and approaches the car. He leans down and says, "Listen mister, I've had a really lousy day, and I just want to go home. Give me a good excuse and I'll let you go." The man thought for a moment and said... "Three weeks ago, my wife ran off with a police officer.

Ingredients: cake 1 cup flour 1/2 cup cream cheese 1/2 cup natural brown sugar* 1 Tbsp baking powder 1/4 cup grated cheese (cheddar or another mild cheese) 1 cup milk 1/4 cup soft butter glaze 3 Tbsp powdered sugar 3 Tbsp evaporated milk 1/2 tsp lemon extract Cream Cheese Sweetheart Cake - Ingredients *The sugar shown is natural granulated sugar, often called "raw". You substitute either white or brown sugar. I use natural sugar because it has a mild sweetness compared to white. Steps: Mix flour, sugar and baking powder. Set aside. In another bowl mix soft butter and cream cheese. Whisk until creamy. Gradually add in the milk. Continue stirring to properly incorporate the milk with the creamy mixture. Gradually pour milk mixture over dry ingredients to avoid lumps. Mix well until well combined. Stir in some grated cheese. Line pan with a greased foil. This is necessary to easily pull the cake out of the pan when it's cooked. Pour mixture in the pan. Sprinkle with grated cheese and bake at 180C for 40 minutes. Take it out of the oven and chill. Meanwhile, mix powdered sugar, evaporated milk and lemon extract. Stir until sugar melts completely. Get the cake and pour glaze over it. Sprinkle with the remaining grated cheese. Chill for 30 minutes. Cut into blocks and enjoy. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher.

_____________________________________________________ On the outskirts of town, there was a big old pecan tree by the cemetery fence. One day two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me," said one boy. Several were dropped and rolled down towards the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you and one for me." He just knew what it was. "Oh my," he shuddered, "it's Satan and the Lord dividing the souls at the cemetery. He jumped back on his bike and rode off. Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along. "Come here quick," said the boy, "you won't believe what I heard. Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls." The man said, "Beat it, kid, can't you see it's hard for me to walk." When the boy insisted, though, the man hobble to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for, me." The man whispered, "Boy, you've been telling the truth. Let's see if we can see the devil himself." Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, yet were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of Satan. At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. And one last one for you. That's all. Now let's go get those nuts by the fence, and we'll be done."

An RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) officer stopped to help a stranded rider standing beside a stalled motorcycle in the mountains. It was extremely cold, and the rider was heavily dressed in a helmet, balaclava and snowmobile suit. In a muffled voice, the rider told the Mountie that the carburetor was frozen. A motorcyclist himself, the Mountie remembered an old trick for just such an occasion. "Try peeing on it," the Mountie said, "That should unfreeze it." "Can't," replied the rider. So the helpful Mountie took out his own equipment and liberally hosed down the carburetor, and the bike soon fired up. A few days later, the local department received a thank you note from a father, grateful for the roadside assistance his young daughter had received from the RCMP ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Restaurant Nutrition Information If you are watching your weight but still like to eat out, be sure to check out the nutrition information online before going to restaurant.

Precise positioning of pictures and and wrap in WORD 




Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, January 18

Did I scare you with my picture?


Telus, my ISP had some problems today.
The biggest, of course, was that the Taliban paid to do tech
support from Pakistan or thereabouts, have no clucking fue, 
and have no real Internet access. They just sit in some
laundromat and mumble and try to make clients believe, the
problem is on the client's side. The Taliban don't even know
what a trace route is!

In case you don't either, even if you are not a Taliban, 
Click on START
type cmd and hit ENTER
You get the scary black DOS screen.
Type 
tracert webby.com
and hit ENTER
(instead of webby.com you can type the name of your ISP, or
google.com)
After a second your computer will start doing a trace.
It will list all the sub stations and internet jumps between
you and your target.

If you see *, that means a pothole on the route.
Three stars means a sub station is in major trouble.

If the trace works fine for a few jumps, then goes to stars,
the problem is far away from you.

Sometimes, though rarely, hitting the reset button on your
modem will cause it to switch to a different DNS (Internet road
map) and will then get through if you try the tracert again.

Tracert is nothing new. No change with it since 1992.
However, I have yet to meet a Taliban who understands that if
your trace route goes 6 jump lines towards your destination,
then craps out, the problem is NOT in your computer. 
They just don't get it. Must be something religious.

Well, eventually, resetting my modem the trird time, I finally
got through to the net again.

Have FUN!

Seith William Keith, 30, last known address in the 400 block of West 4th Street, was booked into the Scott County Jail at 4:05 p.m. on charges of first-degree robbery, a Class B punishable by up to 25 years in prison, and assault while displaying a dangerous weapon, an aggravated misdemeanor. He also is charged with two counts of failure to register as a sex offender-second or subsequent offense, a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison. He is expected to make an initial appearance on the charges Wednesday morning. According to arrest affidavits released Tuesday night by the Scott County Sheriff’s Office: At 8:50 p.m. Monday, Keith walked into the Mt. Joy Amoco BP, displayed a knife and assaulted the clerk by pushing, hitting and cutting her arm. The injury to the clerk’s arm required stitches. He then tried to open the register but was unable to and fled the store. Surveillance video showed Keith’s face, which was positively identified by law enforcement. He is on parole and has a GPS ankle device that placed him at the gas station during the robbery. Keith was arrested at 1:34 p.m. during a traffic stop at East Locust and Iowa streets in Davenport. He admitted to law enforcement that he went to the store, displayed the knife and pushed the clerk to the ground and scuffled with her. Keith also admitted that he intended to take money and that he fled in the same vehicle he was arrested in. An officer who checked with Keith’s parole officer reported that he had been terminated from his job in September and did not report that information within five business days, which he is required to do under the Iowa Sex Offender Registry. Keith admitted that he had not worked at his former workplace for a few months, but said he reported the information. He has prior convictions for registry violations in 2008, 2010, and 2012, according to the affidavits. In January 2013, he was sentenced to up to 10 years in prison on two counts of delivery of a controlled substance and a concurrent sentence of up to five years in prison on a third- degree burglary charge. The sentences were ordered to run concurrent to a sentence of up to five years in prison imposed in October 2012 after a judge ruled that he violated his probation for a sex offender registry violation charge, court records show. He was released from prison in April, according to Iowa Department of Corrections online records. His parole is slated to be discharged in December, according to the IDOC website. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Allen Re: Precise picture positioning in WORD Dear Webby, How can I position a picture with word at the precise place where I want it, intead of where WORD wants to put it? Thanks Allen Dear Allen That's a secret, as far as Microsoft is concerned,but it can be done quite easily. Click on the picture to make it active. Then click on the little doggie icon for Text Wrap. Select TIGHT. The picture will probably scoot off to somewhere else, where it is not suppoded to be, often on the next page. Click on it a couple of times and then you can drag it to where it belongs. It will probably change it's width and hight in the process, but now you can squish it to the exact size you want, andyou can even rotate it.

Thanks to Sandie for this story: There was a church that had a very big-busted organist. Her breasts were so huge that they bounced and jiggled while she played the organ. Unfortunately, she distracted the congregation considerably. The very proper church ladies were appalled. They said something had to be done about this or they would have to get another organist. One of the ladies approached her very discreetly and told her to mash up some green persimmons, and rub them on her breasts and maybe they would shrink in size but warned her to not eat any of the green persimmons though because they are so sour they will make your mouth pucker up and you won't be able to talk properly for a while. She agreed to try it.

When he got up to speak on Sunday, he tried to explain to the congregation why he'd come, and give them some comfort about it. He pointed up to the stained glass windows to illustrate this. "You see where there's a missing pane, and there's a piece of cardboard over it? That's sort of what I'm doing. I'm just filling in the space until your pastor returns." He went on about this a little bit, then went into his sermon. The young substitute pastor gave a wonderful, inspired talk that Sunday. After the service, a lovely old woman came up to him, took his hand, and said, "Pastor, don't you ever let anyone say that you're like that piece of cardboard. Believe me, you are the real pane!"

The 18-year-old was waiting for a cab when Andrew Green pulled up in his white car. She mistook this for her taxi so got in. However, when she realised Green, 44, wasn’t a private hire driver, he locked the doors preventing her from getting out. She said she wanted to get out of the car but he told her he wanted to give her a lift home because his daughter was the same age and he hoped someone would help her if she was on her own. She offered him £10 to get away from the situation, but he then turned aggressive. Police said he then raped her ‘knowing she had nowhere to run and nowhere to hide’. Det Con Claire Hughes, of GMP’s Leigh CID, added: ‘It’s absolutely sickening that he tried to portray himself as a Good Samaritan when his only intentions were rape.’ Green, from Atherton, has was sentenced to six years and nine months in jail at Bolton Crown Court on Monday after earlier pleading guilty to rape. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Karen Re: Power Converters Dear Webby, What kind of power converters do I need for my laptop, camera and travel printer for traveling to Europe? Karen Dear Karen Most likely all you need is a light weight power bar like you use for very low power appliances like Christmas lights. Cut off the plug. When you get there, buy a cheap cord plug at any supermarket or electrical store, and put it at the cut end of your power cord. Almost all laptop and camera chargers are labeled 100V - 240V. They don't care. All you need to adapt is the plug at the end of your extension cord so that it fits into the quaint sockets, that they have over there. Most European countries use the same voltage, but differently shaped outlets, and some countries have more than one style. If you travel around much, you will soon accumulate a nice collection of plugs. Have FUN! DearWebby

After 2 minutes add the sugar. Then, prepare the mold for the gelatin, and place the cut papaya fruit. After 5 minutes of stirring pour mixture through a strainer into the mold. This will eliminate lumps in the gelatin. Put it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Remove from mold. Decorate with sprinkles, chocolate chips, honey or anything you like. It is now ready to serve! Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com Make sure you use KNOX Gelatin for this recipe, NOT Jello, which is mostly sugar and 1/4 of the gelatin of a sachet of KNOX. If you use Jello, don't add sugar, and stir on low heat 5 minutes instead of 2. Have FUN!

The blonde was trying to keep it friendly, so she smiled her biggest smile, and said as sweetly as possibly, "T-G-I-F." The man smiled back to her and once again, "S-H-I-T." The exasperated blonde finally decided to explain. 'T-G-I-F' means 'Thank Goodness It's Friday.' Get it, duuhhh?" The man answered, "S-H-I-T' means 'Sorry, Honey, It's Thursday." ___________________________________________________

Could you tell me how to do it? I read your news letter the first thing every morning. peddlerfrank Dear Frank Make a new, easy to find, folder, name it Keepers Save the big version of the pictue to that folder. You can save all kinds of "keepers" to that folder. Open the Control Panel. Double-click on the display icon. Click the screen saver tab. Select Slideshow In there you can select the location of the files you want, your Keepers folder, and the delay and the duration of each picture. It is a good idea to make a subdirectory or two inside that Keepers directory. Make one for "Staging" (getting ready for Fathers Day) and one for "Bored", where you park the Christmas pictures, that you are bored with for now. Next December you can drag them upstairs to the Keepers directory, that the slide show looks for, and drag the Halloween pictures down to "Bored". You can have one or thousands of files in the Keepers folder. Set the delay to at least 30 seconds, so that the screen saver does not come on every time you stop to sneeze. Have FUN! DearWebby

One night, at the lodge of a hunting club, two new members were being introduced to other members and shown around. The man leading them around said, "See that old man asleep in the chair by the fireplace? He is our oldest member and can tell you some hunting stories you'll never forget." They awakened the old man and asked him to tell them a story. "Well, I remember back in 1944, we went on a lion hunting expedition in Africa. We were on foot and hunted for three days without seeing a thing. On the fourth day, I was so tired I had to rest my feet. I found a fallen tree, so I laid my gun down, propped my head on the tree, and fell asleep. I don't know how long I was asleep when I was awakened by a noise in the bushes. I was reaching for my gun when the biggest damn lion I'd ever seen jumped out of the bushes at me like this: RRROOAARRR!!! ...........I tell you, I just messed my pants." The young men looked astonished and one of them said, "I don't blame you, I would have messed my pants too if a lion jumped out at me." The old man shook his head and said, "No, no... not back then, just now, when I said RRROOAAARRR!!!" ___________________________________________________

Responding to numerous complaints, officials found Choi asleep in the driver's seat of his car, parked in the right lane of U.S. 1 while traffic was free-flowing. After about 30 seconds of banging on the window to wake him up, Choi tried to drive forward, nearly hitting a PSA vehicle. Officers managed to stop the car, and Choi stepped out of the vehicle. An officer asked Choi where he was coming from, and Choi responded "Jacksonville." He then asked where he was headed and Choi responded "Jacksonville". Choi reportedly had the odor of alcohol emanating from his person, and claimed he "had a couple of beers" and that he and his friend were coming from the "brewery". Officers then asked Choi to do a few Field Sobriety tests, which he agreed to, and was unable to properly follow instructions. On at least three separate attempts he moved his head left and right instead of his eyes, he was unable to stay heel-to-toe on the line during the walk and turn test, and he was unable to do a one-leg stand without bending his knee or stepping down. Choi was arrested for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol. Choi's passenger, Changhyun Ahn, was also under the influence and, due to his inebriation, was unable to be left on the roadside without risking injury to himself or others. Unable to contact anyone they knew, police took Ahn to the county jail and placed him into protective custody. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Marcy Re: Deleting individual cookies Dear Webby, Thank you for the information.

He called them into his shop and said, "I know that on your pension you could never hope to have a holiday, so I am sending you off to a fabulous resort at my expense, and I won't take no for an answer." He took them inside and asked his secretary to write two flight tickets and book a room in a five star hotel. They, as can be expected, gladly accepted, and were on their way.

I must confess I don't know much about history...." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Gurtej Randhawa, 19, Birmingham, England British teenager bought bomb off dark web to kill parents ‘because they didn’t like his girlfriend’ Gurtej Randhawa, 19, was arrested after he took delivery of what he believed was a remotely detonated explosive in May last year. But officers had replaced the package with a dummy device before it was delivered. A court heard Randhawa was planning to murder his parents after his mum discovered he was in a relationship with a girl she disapproved of. Fearing his parents would try to end the relationship, the teen hatched a plot to save losing his girlfriend. Gurtej Randhawa, 19, was seen collecting a package he believed were explosives he bought from the dark web. The National Crime Agency’s Armed Operations Unit arrested him after seeing him test the device. Randhawa pleaded guilty to attempting to import explosives and in November, he was found guilty of maliciously possessing an explosive substance with intent to cause serious injury. He was jailed for eight years at Birmingham Crown Court yesterday. Tim Gregory, from the NCA’s Armed Operations Unit, said: ‘The explosive device Randhawa sought to purchase online had the potential to cause serious damage and kill many people if he had been successful in using it. ‘He was not involved in an organised crime group or linked to terrorism, but his actions show he is someone who poses a significant risk to the community.’ Andy Young, from the CPS International Justice and Organised Crime Division, said: ‘Randhawa denied he planned to use the explosives to cause injury but the CPS demonstrated to the jury that this was a lie and Randhawa was observed attempting to test his device before being arrested. ‘Randhawa had used the dark web in an attempt to avoid detection but instead he is now serving a significant prison sentence.’ _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Leo Re: Step Skype back to before last update Dear Webby, Skype somehow managed to sneak in an unauthorized update, and it is a POS. Aside from making it klutzier and more space consuming, like all their updates do, it craps out frequently, and it uses more resources. How do I go back to previous versions? Leo Dear Leo Keep in mind, making those unwanted updates keeps huge herds of Microsoft employees off Welfare, and they don't like it when you dump their updates. They make it sound like you are going to lose everything, including that chocolate bar at the bottom of the computer case. Don't worry. The history and the addresses are safely up on the cloud. I have done it, and did not loose anything. The first step is to UNinstall Skype. Control Panel, Programs, Uninstall, Skype. Ignore the scary warnings by the Microsoft inmates, who want you to use the thilly new version. Just UNinstall the flakey new version. Then go to http://OldVersion.com or any of the sites, that have old versions, select a version you want, and download it. If you use Skype for business purposes, on the side of open spreadsheets or documents, then you might prefer a 6.x version, from before the hated bloating started. Version 7.16 is not as compact, but not as bloated as the current version, and unlike the current version, it is stable and does not suicide every few hours. It is also a lot easier on the resources. Oldversion.com is frequently VERY busy, and you might have to wait a few minutes. Take that as a sign of how valuable they are, and just go get some coffee. Once you have downloaded the file, run it. When Skype comes up, it will have found your user name and password and put your 5000 contacts in, ready to run. Have FUN! DearWebby

We don't make corrections after you leave. There's nothing I can do about it now. That's the policy of this bank !" Customer: "Well, okay. Just thought you'd like to know that you gave me hundred dollars too much. Bye. " ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Grocery Bags for Cleaning the Litter Box If you use scoop-able cat litter, the bags you get at grocery stores work great for disposing of the litter. Just keep some near the litter box. Tie the bag handles together before throwing away and it will help cut down on odors in your garbage can. ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Cookie for more phone fun: Leola Starling of Ribrock, Tenn., had a serious telephone problem. But unlike most people she did something about it. The brand-new $10 million Ribrock Plaza Motel opened nearby and had acquired almost the same telephone number as Leola. From the moment the motel opened, Leola was besieged by calls not for her. Since she had the same phone number for years, she felt that she had a case to persuade the motel management to change its number. Naturally, the management refused, claiming that it could not change its stationery. The phone company was not helpful, either. A number was a number, and just because a customer was getting someone else's calls 24 hours a day didn't make it responsible. After her pleas fell on deaf ears, Leola decided to take matters into her own hands. At 9 o'clock the phone rang. Someone from Memphis was calling the motel and asked for a room for the following Tuesday. Leoloa said, "No problem. How many nights?" A few hours later Dallas checked in. A secretary wanted a suite with two bedrooms for a week. Emboldened, Leola said the Presidential Suite on the 10th floor was available for $600 a night. The secretary said that she would take it and asked if the hotel wanted a deposit. "No, that won't be necessary," Leola said. "We trust you." The next day was a busy one for Leola. In the morning, she booked an electric appliance manufacturers' convention for Memorial Day weekend, a college prom and a reunion of the 82nd Airborne veterans from World War II. She turned on her answering machine during lunchtime so that she could watch the Oprah, but her biggest challenge came in the afternoon when a mother called to book the ballroom for her daughter's wedding in June. Leola assured the woman that it would be no problem and asked if she would be providing the flowers or did she want the hotel to take care of it. The mother said that she would prefer the hotel to handle the floral arrangements. Then the question of valet parking came up. Once again Leola was helpful. "There's no charge for valet parking, but we always recommend that the client tips the drivers." Within a few months, the Ribrock Plaza Motel was a disaster area. People kept showing up for weddings, bar mitzvahs, and Sweet Sixteen parties and were all told there were no such events. Leola had her final revenge when she read in the local paper that the motel might go bankrupt. Her phone rang, and an executive from Marriott said, "We're prepared to offer you $200,000 for the motel."

A man traveling in southern Indiana was headed for the Kentucky border ...when he saw a large sign, , , , "LAST CHANCE FOR $3.25 GAS!!!" He still had more than a quarter of a tank left, but figured he'd better take advantage of this opportunity to fill-up his tank. As he was getting his change from the attendant, he asked, "How much is gas in Kentucky?" The attendant replied, " $3.10 ". ___________________________________________________

In the latest installment of World’s Dumbest Criminals, a 32- year-old Phoenix man was arrested last week on suspicion theft while he worked at a Bank of America. In October of 2016, Bank of America told the Cottonwood Police Department that they suspected their employee, 32-year-old Alberto Saavedra Lopez, had stolen $5,000 from the bank over a three-month period. Lopez then quit his job at the bank, moved to Phoenix and refused to answer any calls or questions pertaining to the theft allegations, police said. Here’s where Lopez’s case of stupid comes in. After avoiding police for about a year, Lopez decided it would be a good idea to apply for a dispatcher job with the Cottonwood Police Department. Don’t adjust your computer screen. You read that correctly. A man who was wanted in connection to a theft investigation thought it was a great idea to apply to work at a police department. Of course, much like any law enforcement job, the Cottonwood Police did a background check on Lopez. Sure enough, the warrant for Lopez came up in their system, so authorities decided to make their job super easy by scheduling an interview with him. Little did Lopez know that the cops only set up the interview to make the arrest. The USA Today reported that Cottonwood Police said that Lopez was “out of the running for employment with the police department.” _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Cindy Re: Font sizes Dear Webby, Hi Webby, I so look forward to receiving your humor letter every day.

If that doesn't work, it could be the nails that hold the shoe together are producing the squeak.

The 40-year-old Texan is a career criminal whose rap sheet includes multiple felony convictions and prison terms. He is currently wanted in connection with a series of armed robberies in Houston. It is not hard to identify Wooten (seen above) since he has his own social security number tattooed on his forehead (not to mention Houston’s area code, 713, inked on his throat). Members of the public are being asked to call the Houston Police Department or Crime Stoppers of Houston if they have information about Wooten’s whereabouts. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Glenis Re: Rule 240 Dear Webby, Dear Webby, You travel a lot. What is "Rule 240" really about, and how does it apply under the current security restrictions? Glenis Dear Glenis Actually, I have not travelled for a few years now. I bet you saw somebody march up to a ticket counter, mentioned "Rule 240"and was instantly given wads of hotel vouchers and tickets. "Rule 240" used to be the federal compensation schedule for passengers inconvenienced by delays due to air line mess-ups. Nowadays each airline has their own "Rule 240" filed with the DOT. The "Rule 240" filings are usually quite straight forward. IF you were at the gate on time, and IF there was no force majeure" events: weather, strikes, "acts of God," or other occurrences that the airlines say they cannot control, or you miss a connection because they were late, they promise to put you up in a decent hotel, give you alternate tickets and meal vouchers. Where the fun comes in is that 99% of the airport counter staff have at one time or another heard about "Rule 240", but have no clue where they can find the copy that is supposed to be at each counter. So they usually fall all over themselves to err on the safe side, rather than get in trouble. You can get the "Rule 240" filings at http://www.mytravelrights.com/travellaw.cfm?ai=3 If the take-off is delayed because of security problems, then the air line is theoretically off the hook, but very few counter staffers know enough about "Rule 240" to intelligently dispute the points, and so they rather give you vouchers.

"Mr. Clark, I'm afraid I have some bad news for you," the doctor told his anxious patient, "You only have six months to live." The man sat in stunned silence for the next several minutes. Regaining his composure, he apologetically told his physician that he had no medical insurance -- "I can't possibly pay you in that time." "OK," said the doctor, "Let's make it a year." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Squeaky Door You can easily fix a squeak door by spraying the hinges with WD40. A little Vaseline or even cooking spray will also do the trick. If it is your own house, then you might want to use a dry moly lubricant spray. It dries to a slick, waxy surface that does not attract dust and grit. It is perfectly clear and the only way you can tell it's presence, is that areas where you over-sprayed beside the hinge, feel slippery to the touch. But they are dry and none of the waxy coating comes off and onto your fingers. It also works very well in locks. You won't be hit with a cleaning charge if a locksmith has to work on it to re-key it, as you would, when you used graphite or WD40. DearWebby ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Phil from Oz for this story: One day some soldiers from a nearby Army camp saw a boy leading a donkey. They thought they would have some fun with him. "Say, boy," called out one of the soldiers. "You sure are keeping a tight rein on your brother, aren't you?" "Sure am," said the boy. "If I didn't he would probably join the Army."

A man goes to the doctor and tells him that he hasn't been feeling well. The doctor examines him, leaves the room and comes back with three different bottles of pills. The doctor says, "Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you get up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water." Startled to be put on so much medicine the man stammers, "My goodness, doc, exactly what's my problem?" Doctor says, "You're not drinking enough water." ___________________________________________________

"Raisins," says the saleswoman, "but they're not for sale." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Viktor Lishavsky,34, Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Russia Foster dad accused of more than 900 rapes and violent acts against 13 - 17 yr old girls Reports in Russia say if convicted Viktor Lishavsky could be the ‘world’s worst paedophile’ after allegedly treating five schoolgirls as his ‘personal harem’. According to Ren TV, 34-year-old Lishavsky is alleged to have ‘had sex with one or another foster daughter every other day, or every third day’ at an apartment he rented with money earnt as a foster parent. Lishavsky, viewed as a model father by officials in the Khabarovsk region of east Russia, allegedly abused the girls over the course of five years. Police were alerted after one of the foster girls complained to a teacher and he was arrested in June last year in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. But he has only now been identified as more details of his alleged crimes have been released. Lishavsky is accused of 248 rapes and 358 ‘violent sexual acts’ against girls aged 13 or under, and also faces charges of more than 270 sex attacks involving girls aged between 12 and 17. The Sun reported he has also been accused of another 22 ‘violent acts of a sexual nature’ against girls below 14-years- old. He also allegedly committed a further 11 rapes or sexual attacks in which he threatened murder or serious harm to health. In total, he faces 919 charges, with all but a handful involving sex abuse. Social services in Khabarovsk have also been accused of negligence in putting vulnerable children, including orphans, under his supervision. He is said to have had three children of his own with his common law wife Olga, and fostered up to nine children with her. No charges have been brought against her. Education chief Alla Kuznetsova said thefamily passed repeated social service inspections and there were ‘no alarms at all’. The five girls he allegedly abused have been sent back to the orphanage. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Allan Re: Location for computer Dear Webby, Dear Webby, What is a better location for my computer, in a snug cubbyhole on my desk, or on the floor below the desk? Allan Dear Allan On the floor, without any doubt whatsoever. You have to be able to get at the cable sockets on the back. That alone rules out a snug cubbyhole. However, the most important reason is cooling. There is nothing that kills a computer faster than inadequate cooling. It needs unresticted air flow that it can draw through the computer ONCE. Not re-use the heated air for that. Just put it on the floor and once or twice a year vacuum out the dust bunnies and clean the heat sinks. It helps if yopu can set it onto some bricks or 2 x 4. The dust bunnies and all their kids cruise on the floor. A few inches above the floor will miss all that traffic. Have FUN! DearWebby

A new convert to Catholicism decided to go to confession to deal with his transgression. In the confessional, he told the priest that he had sinned. "What was your sin, my son?" asked the priest. "I stole some lumber, Father," replied the man. "How much lumber did you steal?" asked the priest. "Father, I built my German Shepherd dog a nice new doghouse." The priest replied, "Well, that's not so bad." The man continued, "Father, I also built myself a 4-car garage." "Well, now, that's a little more serious." "Father, there's more. In addition to the doghouse, the 4-car garage, I also built a 5 bedroom, 4 bath house!" With a pause, the priest finally spoke. "That is a little more serious. I'm afraid you'll have to make a novena." "Father, I'm not sure what a novena is, but if you've got the blueprints, I've got the lumber!"

From Goldie: The preacher came over the other day. He said that, at my age, I should be thinking of the hereafter. I told him that I do it all the time. No matter where I am, in the parlor, upstairs, in the kitchen, or down in the basement, I ask myself, "Now, what am I here after?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Insulating Windows By CPJ [60 Posts, 123 Comments] We live in an older rental home and almost all the windows are singled paned so before the Arctic weather arrived I went to Home Depot and bought 4 x 8 panels of insulation at $8.95 a sheet. It is it's in the building/contractor section, and is silver on one side and 1/2 an inch white foam on the other. None of the windows match. Some are little frames 10 inches by 7.5 inches, others are a little larger and a few that are large. I trimmed and cut pieces to be placed directly on the glass. Silver side touching the glass, white side facing inside the room. From the outside of the house it looks like all the windows are covered with aluminum foil. I figured out a way to be able to attach and remove the larger pieces of insulation with Velcro strips to hold it in place. Part of the Velcro on the window frame and part on the insulation, so I would have light. Every day at 4 PM I put the insulation back in the windows. We kept the house at 74 and during the night it would drop down to 63-64 in the den. For about the same price you can get greenhouse panels. They are similar to the plastic election signs, but 1/4 to 1" thick, and they are clear. Not as clear as glass, but you can recognize people outside. After twenty years they get a bit less clear, but the sun still shines through and you see and recognize people on the outside. Dad got over 25 years so far out of a greenhouse with just those panels and aluminum framework. No glass. He never removes them, just lets the rain and snow clean them. And he grows cacti in there. In your case, it would be like adding double pane windows with a high efficiency air gap. The benefit of the suns heat and light are worth much more than the difference in price! Just do one window at a time! Bubble Wrap is an ultra-cheap alternative. Attach it with double-sided tape. You get the free heat and light from the sun, which is worth a lot! Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________ A wealthy man is having an affair with an Italian woman and has continued the affair for a few years. One night, over dinner at the mistress's favorite Italian restaurant, she confides in him that she's pregnant. Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he offers to pay her a large sum of money if she would go to Italy to have the child. And if she stayed in Italy, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18. She agrees, but asks how he would know when the baby was born. To keep everything discreet, he tells her to mail him a post card, and write "Spaghetti" on the back. Upon receiving the postcard, he would then arrange for child support. About 9 months later, the man comes home to his extremely confused wife. "Honey," she replies, "you received a very strange post card today." "Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it later," he says. The wife obeys, and watches as her husband reads the card, turns white, and faints. On the card was written, "Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti. Two with meatballs, one without."

As luck would have it, a gas station was just a block away. She walked to the station to borrow a gas can and buy some gas. The attendant told her that the only gas can he owned had been loaned out, but she could wait until it was returned. Since the nun was on the way to see a patient, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car. She looked for something in her car that she could fill with gas and spotted the bedpan she was taking to the patient. Always resourceful, she carried the bedpan to the station, filled it with gas, and carried the full bedpan back to her car. As she was pouring the gas into her tank, two men watched from across the street. One of the them turned to the other and said, "If it starts, I'm turning Catholic." ____________________________________________________ Alice Grayson was to bake a cake for the Baptist Church ladies' group bake sale in Tuscaloosa, but she forgot to do it until the last minute. She remembered it the morning of the bake sale and after rummaging through cabinets she found an angel food cake mix and quickly made it while drying her hair and dressing and helping her son Bryan pack up for Scout camp. But when Alice took the cake from the oven, the center had dropped flat and the cake was horribly disfigured. She said, "Oh dear, there's no time to bake another cake." This cake was so important to Alice because she did so want to fit in at her new church, and in her new community of new friends. So, being inventive, she looked around the house for something to build up the center of the cake. Alice found it in the bathroom -- a roll of toilet paper. She plunked it in and then covered it with icing. Not only did the finished product look beautiful, it looked perfect! Before she left the house to drop the cake by the church and head for work, Alice woke her daughter Amanda and gave her some money and specific instructions to be at the bake sale the minute it opened at 9:30, and to buy that cake and bring it home. When the daughter arrived at the sale, she found that the attractive perfect cake had already been sold. Amanda grabbed her cell phone and called her Mom. Alice was horrified she was beside herself. Everyone would know, what would they think? Oh, my she wailed! She would be ostracized, talked about, ridiculed. All night Alice lay awake in bed thinking about people pointing their fingers at her and talking about her behind her back. The next day, Alice promised herself that she would try not to think about the cake and she would attended the fancy luncheon/bridal shower at the home of a friend of a friend and try to have a good time. Alice did not really want to attend because the hostess was a snob who more than once had looked down her nose at the fact that Alice was a single parent and not from the founding families of Tuscaloosa, but having already RSVP 'd she could not think of a believable excuse to stay home. The meal was elegant, the company was definitely upper crust old South... and to Alice's horror, the CAKE in question was presented for dessert. Alice felt the blood drain from her body when she saw the cake, she started, out of her chair to rush to tell her hostess all about it, but before she could get to her feet, the Mayor's wife said, "What a beautiful cake!" Alice, who was still stunned, sat back in her chair when she heard the hostess (who was a prominent church member) say, Thank you, I baked it myself." Alice smiled and thought to herself, "GOD is good." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ ____________________________________

The young girl, found by family on New Year’s Day at the Rawsonville Woods mobile home community, was unresponsive with her limbs covered in severe burns, Fox2 reported. There were attempts to revive her and she was rushed to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor where she was pronounced dead. Candice Renea Diaz, 24, and Brad Edward Fields, 28, have been charged with felony murder, murder in the second degree, first degree child abuse and torture, Sumpter Township police said. An autopsy on Jan. 3 ruled the girl’s death a homicide. It also revealed further traumatic injuries and evidence of Battered Child Syndrome, police said. Fields was also charged as a habitual offender, previously arrested for domestic violence. Police say the couple are believed to be driving black 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier with the Michigan license plate DTR1854. Too late for details: .. marshals arrested 24-year-old Candice Renea Diaz and 28- year-old Brad Edward Fields as they drove near Lake Park, Georgia.

Imagine her embarrassment when the checker got on the intercom and boomed out for all the store to hear, "PRICE CHECK ON LANE THIRTEEN, TAMPAX, SUPER SIZE." That was bad enough, but somebody at the rear of the store apparently misunderstood the word "Tampax" for "THUMBTACKS." In a business-like tone, a voice boomed back over the intercom.

Finally one day a boat comes sailing into view, and the man frantically waves and draws the skipper's attention. The boat comes near the island, and the sailor gets out and greets the stranded man. After awhile the sailor asks, "What are those three huts you have here?" "Well, that's my house there." "What's that next hut?" asks the sailor. "I built that hut to be my church." "What about the other hut?" "Oh, that's where I used to go to church."

The passion is heating up. But then the wife stops and says "I don't feel like it, I just want you to hold me." The husband says "WHAT??" The wife explains that he must not be in tune with her emotional needs as a Woman. The husband realizes that nothing is going to happen tonight and he might as well deal with it. So the next day the husband takes her shopping at a big dept. store. He walks around and has her try on three very expensive outfits. And then tells his wife. We'll take all three of them. Then goes over and gets matching shoes worth $200 each. And then goes to the Jewelry Dept. and gets a set of diamond earrings. The wife is so excited (she thinks her husband has flipped out, but she does not care). She goes for the tennis bracelet. The husband says "but you don't even play tennis, but OK if you like it then lets get it." The wife is jumping up and down so excited she cannot even believe what is going on. She says "I am ready to go, lets go to the cash register." The husband says," no - no - no, honey we're not going to buy all this stuff." The wife's face goes blank. "No honey - I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while." Her face gets really red and she is about to explode and then the husband says, "You must not be in tune with my emotional state about unbalanced checkbooks and overdrawn VISAs!" ____________________________________________________ I was in my car one day listening to a guy on the radio help callers with their home problems.

A chief and an admiral were sitting in the barber shop. They were both just getting finished with their shaves--the barbers were reaching for some aftershave to slap on their faces.

See what you think: "When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love." Rebecca- age 8 "When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth." Billy - age 4 "Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other." Karl - age 5 "Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs." Chrissy - age 6 "Love is what makes you smile when you're tired." Terri - age 4 "Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK." Danny - age 7 "Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss" Emily - age 8 "Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen." Bobby - age 7 (Wow!) "If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate," Nikka - age 6 "Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday." Noelle - age 7 "Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well." Tommy - age 6 "My mommy loves me more than anybody . You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night." Clare - age 6 "Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the very best piece of chicken." Elaine-age 5 "Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford."

I finally did invest in a digital camera. Have just begun to read the book. I have 2 questions. 1) Would it be ok to connect the usb cable to the pc & leave it plugged in even when not connected to the camera? My connection is at the base of the pc which is on the floor & it is sometimes difficult to get down to connect it. 2) I haven't tried sending the pic to the pc yet so I can email them to family & friends but am curious as to what size would good to send. Some pics I have received have are so big they seem to take so long to download. Any size suggestions? Thanks so much for your help. This will be a new experience for me. Sharon Dear Sharon Yes, sure you can leave the cable plugged into the PC. Just put the open end into a cup, in case any electrons drip out. Just kidding about anything dripping out, but it's a good idea to put the open end into an empty bud vase or a pencil cup or anything that will securely hold it on the desk. If it falls down on the floor and you drive over the cable end with your chair, the cable is ruined. The best size for mailing pictures is the size I use in the Humor Letter: 600 pixels wide. You can always tell them that, if they want a bigger size for printing it out to specify what size they want. Have FUN! DearWebby

One of the common concerns I hear from people about used cars is that they will require expensive repairs sooner than new cars. There is no question that repair bills can be outrageously expensive but here's one way to look at it. If a new car costs you $15,000 (or more) and a five year old version of the same car costs $5,000, the difference in price leaves you a lot of room to make repairs and still come out on top. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Sometimes women are overly suspicious of their husbands. When Adam stayed out late for a few nights, Eve became upset. "You're running around with other women," she charged. "You're being unreasonable," Adam responded. "You're the only woman on earth." The quarrel continued until Adam fell asleep, only to be awakened by someone poking him in the chest. It was Eve. "What do you think you're doing?" Adam demanded. "Counting your ribs," said Eve.

I've been searching for some files in MS Word and cannot seem to locate them. Is there a way to 'search' for missing files? If so please keep explanation in the form of "See spot chase puff". Peace Frank Dear Frank I would need skis to chase puff. You may have seen me mention SearchEverything. Download the Installer at https://www.voidtools.com/downloads/ It is the best searcher in this galaxy. And it is free. You can customize the search to speed it up, for example just documents or just pictures or just programs, etc., with a simple click. One of these decades I am going to read the manual, but not just yet. It works well enough. When Done with it, close it. It does use some memory when it is running. Unless you have tons of memory, just quit it when done. If things slow down, use CTRL SHIFT ESC to get the Windoze task manager, highlight SearchEverything, and end it. Just type a part of the file name that you are looking for. It will find all occurrences of that fragment. You will love that Power-toy! Have FUN! DearWebby

Three Pastors in the South were having lunch in a diner. One said "You know, since summer started I've been having trouble with bats in my loft and attic at church. I've tried everything--noise, spray, cats--nothing seems to scare them away." Another said "Yea, me too. I've got hundreds living in my belfry and in the narthex attic. I've even had the place fumigated and they won't go away." The third said, "I baptized all mine, made them members of the church and asked for donations. Haven't seen one back since!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com 20% Down on New Cars When buying a new or used car from a dealer, make a down payment of at least 20%. That will be a enough to cover taxes and most of the vehicles first year depreciation. Dealerships will gladly sell you a car with less down, but that will leave you with an upside down loan for years. An upside down loans means you owe more than the car is worth.

After a fruitless search, he told his mother the lens was no where to be found. Undaunted, she went outside and in a few minutes returned with the lens in her hand. "How did you manage to find it, Mom?" the teenager asked. "We weren't looking for the same thing," she replied. "You were looking for a small piece of plastic. I was looking for $150."

_____________________________________________________ I just came across this old tech support story. Totally obsolete, but too good to just let it die. Keep in mind that this is from a very long time ago, when Windows came on a stack of floppy disks and when a Mac's standard way of dealing with a PC floppy was to destroy all data on it and format it. An unfailingly polite lady called to ask for help with a Windows installation that had gone terribly wrong. Customer: "I brought my Windows disks from work to install them on my home computer." Training stresses that we are "not the Software Police," so I let the little act of piracy slide. Tech Support: "Umm-hmm. What happened?" Customer: "As I put each disk in it turns out they weren't initialized." Tech Support: "Do you remember the message exactly, ma'am?" Customer: (proudly) "I wrote it down. 'This is not a Macintosh disk. Would you like to initialize it?'" Tech Support: "Er, what happened next?" Customer: "After they were initialized, all the disks appeared to be blank. And now I brought them back to work, and I can't read them in the A: drive; the PC wants to format them. And this is our only set of Windows disks for the whole office. Did I do something wrong?" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Alexander Ramos-Pacheco, Lancaster, Pennsylvania Lancaster man sentenced up to 30 years for beating woman, already serving 10 years for sex abuse of minor A Lancaster man serving a 10-year federal sentence for sex abuse of a child was sentenced up to 30 more years for beatings of a woman, according to the Lancaster County district attorney's office. Alexander Ramos-Pacheco, 27, was sentenced in Lancaster County Court to 13 to 30 years in state prison on charges including aggravated assault and use of an electronic incapacitation device. Ramos-Pacheco pleaded guilty in November to a series of beatings of the woman at his Lancaster city home. Over years he strangled the woman and abused her with a stun gun, zapping her more than 20 times and leaving marks and scars on her body, the district attorney's office said. In court last week Judge Donald Totaro called the abuse "sadistic." Lead investigator Lancaster city police Det. Randy Zook told the judge the woman would have likely become a homicide victim if police had not intervened. Assistant District Attorney Karen Mansfield played a 5-minute recording taken by Ramos-Pacheco on his cellphone during one beating. Totaro ordered the sentenced be served consecutively to the 10-year federal term Ramos-Pacheco was sentenced to February 2016. Ramos-Pacheco also pleaded guilty to three counts of simple assault, making terroristic threats and stalking. He is serving the 10-year federal sentence for sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl he contacted online then drove out of state to meet. The FBI assisted Lancaster city police and the U.S. Attorney's Office prosecuted in that case. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ellen Re: Satellite modem Dear Webby, Can I use a satellite dish and a satellite modem for our business here in Montana? Thanks Ellen Dear Ellen Theoretically, yes. Practically, no. I would not advise satellite modems for business purposes anywhere north of the Mason/Dixon line. Even though you can get a beautiful TV picture even up in Alaska, the signal has to travel through too much polluted air to be able to maintain a high speed connection reliably at all times in Montana. Sure, you could use a satellite modem and connect quite often. However, "quite often" is not good enough for a business. Even in Florida or Texas or Arizona, practically directly below the satellite, you need a land line dial-up back-up for times of bad weather. That has nothing to do with the satellite dish or the channel dealer. It's strictly a matter of dirty air and bad weather interfering with high speed data transfer. In your area it is probably best to just use the satellite dish for TV. You might be able to get line of sight wireless from your ISP. For a business, that is an excellent solution, and you can get fantastic speeds. Have FUN! DearWebby

On my first day working at the gas station, I watched a senior co-worker measure the level of gasoline in the under- ground tanks by lowering a giant measuring stick down into them. "What would happen if I threw a lit match into the hole?" I joked. "It would go out," he replied very matter-of-factly. "Really?" I asked, surprised to hear that. "Is there a lack of oxygen down there or some safety device that would extinguish it before the fumes ignited?" "No," my co-worker continued. "The force from the explosion would blow out the match." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Rolling Existing Car Loans Into a New Car Purchase Don't buy a new car if you haven't paid off your old one unless you have equity accumulated. One common practice at dealerships is to offer to roll the balance of an existing loan into the financing for a new car. It usually creates a situation where you are taking a loan that is greater than the value of the car you are buying. While this makes it easy to leave the car lot with a sparkling new car, it's bad practice for consumers and a financial boon for dealers and lenders. Anything that is good for them, is usually bad for you. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ We were discussing the "don'ts" of public speaking in the PR class I teach. "Don'ts" include a man reaching into his pants pocket and jangling change as he speaks, which is very distracting. To illustrate my point, I asked for a student volunteer, saying, "I need a man with coins in his pocket." What I got instead was a girl yelling out, "Hey, so do I!"

"What's this?" the boss asks. "Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and tree make nine," says Thibodeau. "Fair enough," says the boss. "Here's your second question. Use the same rules, but this time the number is 99." Thibodeau stares into space for a while, then picks up the picture that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree. "Ere you go." The boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you get that to represent 99?" "Each of da trees is dirty now. So, it's dirty tree, and dirty tree, and dirty tree. Dat is 99." The boss is getting worried that he's going to actually have to hire this guy, so he says, "All right, last question. Same rules again, but represent the number 100." Thibodeau stares into space some more, then he picks up the picture again and makes a little mark at the base of each tree and says, "Ere you go. One hundred." The boss looks at the attempt.

In a report by The Lakeland Ledger, Polk County Judge Sharon Franklin said 53-year-old Donna Byrne was unfit to care for the horse. Franklin also said Byrne must complete treatment for alcohol addiction. Byrne was arrested Nov. 2 after riding her horse down a highway.

Byrne's attorney, Craig Whisenhunt, says he will revisit the custody issue at a Jan. 11 hearing regarding additional pending charges of disorderly intoxication, animal endangerment and culpable negligence.

They are not the ones who make your laws. All they do is make suggestions, then your Senate and Congress twist those around to suit themselves, which usually is the opposite, and then Trump and Arnold wind up having to take the blame for those laws, and explain them to the people. Petitions like that one carry exactly the same amount of clout as any other nonsense forwards coming out of AOL.

What happens when you have deja vu and amnesia at the same time? You have the feeling that you're forgetting the same thing all over again. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Refurbishing A Faded Patio Umbrella One day Little Johnny's teacher, decided to play a spelling game. She gave a letter of the alphabet and the kids have to spell a word starting with that letter, then use it in a sentence. Starting with "A" Little Johnny's hand was continually in the air, but the teacher ignored him. Little Johnny had a propensity for lewd remarks and could turn the simplest of statements into sexual innuendo. The teacher was afraid to let Johnny use any letter that he could turn into a lewd statement. "All right now, Susan, you first?" said the teacher. "A is for Ape, A-P-E, An ape likes bananas" answered Susan. "Excellent " said the teacher. She continues on through the alphabet. Finally she reaches F. Now she will NOT let Little Johnny answer this under any circumstances so she asks Mary. "F is for Fairy F-A-I-R-Y, they're little girls who live among the flowers", Mary replies. "Great", says the teacher. "Now we get to G". Only Little Johnny has his hand up so the teacher thinks about this and decides "G" is a safe one. "Yes Johnny?" She asks. "G is for Gnome G-N-O-M-E. A Gnome lives among the flowers too". "Johnny! That's Excellent!" Exclaims the teacher, very happy that for once he wasn't out of line. Little Johnny goes on to say, "yes, teacher, he's the one who knocks up the fairies!" Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Came across this one in my archives. Thanks to *Sandie for this story: When everybody on earth was dead and waiting to enter Paradise , God appeared and said, "I want the men to make two lines. One line for the men who were true heads of their household, and the other line for the men who were dominated by their women. I want all the women to report to St. Peter." Soon, the women were gone, and there were two lines of men. The line of the men who were dominated by their wives was 100 miles long, and in the line of men who truly were heads of their household, there was only one man. God said, "You men should be ashamed of yourselves, I created you to be the head of your household! You have been disobedient and have not fulfilled your purpose! Of all of you, only one obeyed. Learn from him." God turned to the one man, "How did you manage to be the only one in this line?" The man replied, "My wife told me to stand here." --------- *Sandie Remember that 30 year old Ferro cactus a couple of days ago? Here is Sandie claiming that this 200 year old Ferro wants to go home with her. It is an old picture. Sandie got her wings 4 years ago.

Deputies from the Flagler County Sheriff's Office arrested Michael Scott Wilson, 32, Thursday in Knoxville, Tennessee, after they issued an arrest warrant for him. On Dec. 26, deputies responded to 110 White Hall Drive in Palm Coast to conduct a security check after the homeowner reported suspicious statements made by his son-in-law, who told a child in the home not to touch the front door. Man accused of raping woman in Jacksonville Beach condo worked at 3rd Street Diner Deputies said the front door appeared to be barricaded and noted burn marks near the door handle. A deputy kicked the door, which caused a large spark, authorities added. After a thorough investigation, deputies said Wilson rigged the door in an attempt to cause great bodily harm to his estranged wife. Deputies also reported that Wilson stole a firearm belonging to his father-in-law from the house. Wilson is charged with two counts of attempted aggravated battery on a pregnant person and one count of grand theft of a firearm. He is being held on $150,000 bond and will be extradited to the Flagler County Detention Facility to face charges. “This is one of the most bizarre domestic violence cases I have seen in my career,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Not only did this man plan to electrocute his wife, but he could have injured a deputy or any person attempting to enter this residence. Thankfully, this man was found and taken into custody before he could cause the harm he intended.” This is an ongoing investigation, and additional charges are pending. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Daniel Re: Medium-Low Dear Webby, i want to change the security setting under internet options from medium to medium low,but it keeps going back to medium.is there a way to keep it at medium low? thanks again, the pest Dear Daniel It's not recommended to go below medium, except for brief and very carefully monitored exceptions.

My aunt proceeded to tell me that she wants to use that $400 to get her boyfriend out of jail because she wants to be under the same roof with him for the holidays!!! So I thought about it for a minute, and decided to go ahead and give her the $400. I called and said, "Come on, I got you." A couple hours later, I got a call from the County Jail, and it was her... "Why did you give me counterfeit money?!" I replied with the best answer I could: "So you and your boyfriend would be under the same roof for the holidays.

Officers came to Farm Tavern Bar at 1701 Moorland Road just before 4 p.m. last Thursday over a report of a disturbance and determined the suspect left the bar, police said in a release posted Monday. An officer spoke to many patrons of the bar and identified the suspect as Christopher Gamboeck, calling him intoxicated and violent, according to police. The 33-year-old was upset because the bartender changed the music in the bar from Black Sabbath to Christmas music. Gamboeck “chugged his glass bottle of Budweiser beer, and slammed it down on the counter,” according to the release. He threw a bottle of beer in the direction of the female bartender’s head after he yelled expletives at her, the release stated. Other patrons in the bar prevented Gamboeck from going behind the counter as he circled the bar with his fists clenched, according to the release. His uncle eventually intervened and directed Gamboeck to the door. He left the bar, but pulled down a Christmas tree and broke several delicate ornaments, according to police. Police came to his residence and he rushed toward officers, the release said. He was threatened with a Taser before he was taken to custody. He said gender-based obscenities toward a female officer before he was taken to Dane County Jail. Gamboeck is facing disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property charges. His attorney information wasn’t immediately available. Resisting arrest may be added later. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Leesa Re: saving pictures from PPS Dear Webby, I see someone else has questions about PPS files today, so thought I'd ask you about this one.

I once used to have a John Deere tractor like that too." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Natasha Claus, 36 Woking, England English Woman rode motorbike naked, got fingered in the street and punched a blind man and a cop A woman has been jailed and banned from entering Woking after she punched a blind man and was caught in the middle of a sex act in the street. Natasha Claus, 36, was described as ‘a mess’ by a judge after she turned up to court four hours late to be handed a 13-month prison sentence. The judge revealed that she had also been caught riding through the Surrey town naked on a motorbike, but added that she was not being sentenced for that particular incident. She pleaded guilty outraging public decency after she was caught in the middle of a sex act that Judge Peter Ross said was ‘no doubt for money’. Prosecutor John Upton said she was spotted in Goldsworth Road, Woking, ‘being fingered by a man’ on July 29 this year. A mother with her two children asked her to stop and Claus responded by threatening to punch her. When she was arrested at the scene, police said her jeans were pulled up, but her knickers were in her handbag. Mr Upton told Guildford Crown Court that she was in the habit of befriending vulnerable men then taking advantage of them. Trouble flared when one of those men was threatened with being kicked out of his flat by the local council because of her anti-social behaviour. They argued and Claus attacked him. Because he was registered blind, he couldn’t tell if it was with her palm or fist. When being arrested for the attack, she assaulted two police officers calling one of them a ‘P**i c**t’. Defence barrister Timothy Leete said that she was addicted to inhaling butane gas, leading Judge Moss to tell her ‘your life is a mess.’ The judge added: ‘Any assault on a vulnerable person is very serious indeed, as is any attack on the police officers who we have a moral obligation to protect.’ The judge also made reference to a further indecent incident, saying: ‘I had the impression there was some reference to her riding around on a motorbike with no clothes on, but that has nothing to do with the charges today.’ He told her: ‘You are a mess. Your life is a mess. I spoke to your son earlier and it is a testament to something in your son’s life that he’s never been to court and finds this whole situation awful. ‘I have made a criminal behaviour order against you, restricting your movements and behaviour.’ She was jailed for three months for the assault on the blind man, and two months for each attack on the police officer, two months for being racist to one of the officers, one month for outraging public decency and another month for abusing the woman who asked her to stop the sex act. She was also jailed for four months for breaching a suspended jail sentence. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Debi Re: NotifyAlert.exe Dear Webby, I enjoy your newsletter every day!

Notifyalert.exe could be from Novell, or from Dell, and most likely are due to transferring files from an old mqchine.

Thanks to Mona for this story: Our young daughter had adopted a stray cat. To my distress, he began to use the back of our new sofa as a scratching post. "Don't worry," my husband reassured me. "I'll have him trained in no time." I watched for several days as my husband patiently "trained" our new pet. Whenever the cat scratched, my husband deposited him outdoors to teach him a lesson. The cat learned quickly. For the next 16 years, whenever he wanted to go outside, he scratched the back of the sofa.

During the banquet celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary, Tom was asked to give his friends a brief account of the benefits of a marriage of such long duration. "Tell us Tom, just what is it you have learned from all those wonderful years with your wife?" an anonymous voice yelled from the back of the room. Tom responded, "Well, I've learned that marriage is the best teacher of all. It teaches you loyalty, forbearance, self- restraint, meekness, forgiveness -- and a great many other qualities you wouldn't need if you stayed single." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Tablecloths for Fabric If you sew, a great way to find cheap fabric is to look at garage sales for tablecloths.

Medieval Monarchs Who Died In The Most Embarrassing Ways Imaginable.
A man and a woman had been married for ten years and decided to try and have kids. They had not been using birth control for the entire time they had been married, so they thought they may have a problem conceiving.The woman decided to go to the gynecologist and see if the problem was with her. She had been hard of hearing since she was little. The doctor examined her and came in to give her the conclusions. He said, "I'm sorry, but the problem is with you. You have insufficient passion and if you ever have a baby it will be a miracle." The woman was very upset and went home crying. Her husband got home and asked her what was wrong. She said, "The doctor told me I've got a fish up my passage and if I ever have a baby it will be a mackerel." ___________________________________________________
