Viktoria Nasyrova was arraigned Tuesday on a 10-count indictment including charges of attempted murder, burglary, assault and others. The 42-year-old was arrested March 20, 2017 in Brooklyn after finally being tracked down due to her latest alleged crime. Her lawyer declined to comment on the charges. Nasayrova is also accused of fleeing to New York in 2014 after allegedly killing another woman and seducing the lead detective in her prosecution. Prosecutors say Nasyrova visited the Queens home of the fellow Russian speaking victim Olga Tsvyk in 2016 bearing a cheesecake tainted with phenazepam, a powerful Russian-made tranquilizer. The 35-year-old victim, who bares a striking resemblance to Nasayrova, ate the cheesecake, became ill and passed out, prosecutors said. She was found the next day on her bed unconscious and dressed in lingerie with pills scattered about as if she tried to kill herself. The victim later realized her passport, employment card, a gold ring and cash were missing. If convicted, Nasyrova faces up to 25 years in prison. Nasayrova is also wanted in Russia for the slaying of a Alla Alekseenko, 54, whose remains were found burned and buried two miles from her home in Krasnodar. The victim's body was spotted in the front seat of Nasyrova's car by traffic cameras, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed when she was arrested in 2017. Investigators said she was motivated by money. The victim's daughter, Nadezda Ford, said she got a text message purporting to be from her missing mother shortly after her mother's disappearance saying: 'Sweetie, don't worry about me, I'll notify you about where I am soon enough.' But the message came after traffic camera footage appeared to show her mother dead in Nasyrova's passenger seat on the day she disappeared, October 5, 2014. Alekseenko's body was found months later, and investigators found $17,000 in cash and jewelry missing from her home. She has denied any part in the Alekseenko murder. Nasayrova was allegedly able to escape Russia by having sex with a local police officer. By November that year she had moved to New York. Once settled into her home in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, police said she enjoyed a lavish lifestyle of diamonds and furs, paid for by the men she lured into her life. She allegedly drugged and robbed each male before moving onto her next target. Nasayrova was eventually tracked down last year by a private detective Herman Weisberg, who was approached by Ford after she learned her mother's suspected killer was living near to her in Brooklyn. 'A Good Samaritan who knew the daughter of the murdered Russian woman got in touch with me and told me the story,' Weisberg told DailyMail.com. 'She offered to pay whatever cost for me to track her down and bring her to justice.' Ford 'was living in fear of this woman, had already moved once and was heartbroken over the loss of her mother,' said Weisberg. The intrepid detective discovered that Nasyrova was still regularly using Facebook under a different name, and found her secret profile. 'After poring over pictures I realized the stitching on the leather car seat in one of her selfies was unique to a high-end Chrysler. I then had my surveillance team scour Sheepshead Bay until we found the vehicle,' the gumshoe said. The team found the vehicle, a Chrysler 300, and began a stakeout. Weisberg's discovery paid off - they'd located the mysterious fugitive. NYPD Chief of Detectives Bob Boyce said: 'She's a con artist who meets people online through a dating site and then drugs them at some point, and takes their property from them and flees'. She was arrested by the NYPD Warrant Squad on an open warrant for the alleged seduction robberies after Weisberg alerted investigators to her location, since Russia doesn't have an extradition treaty with the U.S. 'She embarked on a life of crime here, and we don't have the whole story yet. We only have bits and pieces', Boyce added. 'What’s incredible is that Nasyrova wasn't living like she was on the lam – we pictured her out shopping for a 50-inch widescreen TV,' said Weisberg. 'We think she was empowered by her previous arrest for shoplifting, which didn’t pick up the fact she is wanted by Interpol for this murder.' Nasyrova was arrested in May of 2016 for stealing two furs worth $532 from a Century 21, but wasn't flagged as an international fugitive at the time. 'It would have made her feel like she had slipped the net,' said Weisberg. 'Not now.' Nasyrova now claims that people in jail started to 'threaten and harass her,' according to a notice of claim filed against the city. She apparently plans to sue. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Cookie Re: Make an alphabetical list Dear Webby, How do I make an alphabetical list of files in a folder to use in a web page menu?

This year's Halloween the University tracked Trick-or-Treaters according to their star signs and found the following: Aries pushes the others aside to get to the door first. Taurus will only eat the finest of Swiss chocolates. Gemini goes around the neighbourhood once, changes costumes and goes around again. Cancer stays at home and gives candy to the other trick-or-treaters. Leos plan their costume for months, then won't go out because someone else had the same idea. Virgo wears a neatly-pressed suit and tells everyone they're a bookkeeper. Libra is still standing in front of the closet trying to decide on a costume. Scorpio isn't in it for the candy. Sagittarius will manage to wander to the next town. Capricorn makes a list of all the houses that give good candy and the optimal route to take. Aquarius builds the costume out of spare flashlights and spends all night tinkering when it shorts. Pisces skips the whole thing to compose poetry to the Moon. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com What Can I Use on Laminate Floors That Won't Streak?

After a long night negotiating with the union, he remembers the 3 envelopes. So he opens the first one and it says: "Blame me, your predecessor for everything". Wonderful idea he thinks, and indeed it works and the crisis comes to its end. His job is saved, and everybody's happy. A few years later, another strike hits. He goes to the drawer and opens the second envelope. It reads, "Blame the government for everything". It works like a charm, and he breathes a sigh of relief as his job is, once again, saved.

I've changed my will three times!" _____________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Father Luke W. Reese, 49, Indianapolis, Indiana Catholic priest accused of kidnapping, confinement and domestic battery of wife A Catholic priest in Indianapolis is being charged with kidnapping, criminal confinement, intimidation, and domestic battery after allegedly assaulting his wife on Sept. 24, 2017. According to a probable cause affidavit obtained Tuesday, Father Luke W. Reese, 49, assaulted the woman after he found out she was having an affair. In the court document, the victim claims she was in the backseat of a vehicle with the man when Reese arrived and told her to get out. In the document, the wife says Reese then drove them around the city as he hit her and blasted heavy metal music. The two then went to the Holy Rosary Catholic Church of Indianapolis, where the woman claims Reese made her kneel at the altar, said he could choke her, slammed her into a wall and hit her head against their vehicle before leaving, the affidavit says. Reese then reportedly drove his wife to Auburn to “make her tell her 90-something-year-old grandmother what she had done by talking to another man.” When the couple got home, the woman claims Reese ripped off her clothes, tore up her outfits “that he thought were slutty,” and forced her to have sex, according to court documents. Shortly after the alleged assault, the Holy Rosary Catholic Church released a statement in its bulletin announcing that Reese would take a leave of absence for a few months. “This past Monday, Father Reese notified me that he was experiencing some personal and family issues which would require a greater amount of his attention,” read the message to parishioners. Further down in the message, parishioners were asked to respect Reese and his family’s privacy. They were told that if they asked about the leave of absence, they would be told to “mind your own business.” _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Arnold Re: Open a command prompt in Explorer Dear Webby, You told us once how to get a command prompt in Explorer.

A Classic! A game warden noticed how a particular fellow named Sam consistently caught more fish than anyone else. Whereas the other guys would only catch three or four fish a day, Sam would come in from the lake with a boat full of fish. Stringer after stringer was packed with freshly caught trout. The warden, curious, asked Sam his secret. The successful fisherman invited the game warden to accompany him and observe. So the next morning, the two met at the dock and took off in Sam's boat. When they got to the middle of the lake, Sam stopped the boat, and the warden sat back to see how it was done. Sam's approach was simple: He took out a stick of dynamite, lit it, and threw it into the air. The explosion rocked the lake with such a force that dead fish immediately began to surface. Sam took out a net and started scooping them up. Well, you can imagine the reaction of the game warden. When he recovered from the shock of it all, he began yelling at Sam, "You can't do this! I'll put you in jail, buddy! You will be paying every fine there is in the book!" Sam, meanwhile, set his net down and took out another stick of dynamite. He lit it and tossed it in the lap of the game warden with these words: "Your turn!"

Way dawn in the deep saoth, in an area known as the 'Baible Belt,' there lived a Baptist minister with a very large congregation. One morning, after a particularly moving sermon, he announced, "Friends I have been hearing very nasty rumors!" The crowd fell into an expectant silence. The Minister continued, "One of you, here among us, has been reporting that I am a member of the dreaded 'Klu Klux Klan.' This, of course, is not true! I am asking that the guilty party confess and apologize now - right here - before my flock of loyal followers." Sister Margaret quickly stood up and pleaded, "Preacher, please, I don't know how this all came to be. I just mentioned to one of my close friends that you were a wizard under the sheets." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Storing Tea Always store loose tea in a container with a tight fitting lid to preserve the quality of the herbs.

The man explained, "Well, my wife and I made a pact when we got married that whenever she got mad she would go into the kitchen and cool off and I would go outside to settle down." "What does that have to do with it?" asked the doctor. The man sighed, "I've pretty much lived an outdoor life."

County. Nicolas Morales, 44, was arrested Friday by Alhambra police. He appeared at the Alhambra branch of L.A. County Superior Court on Tuesday afternoon clad in a blue jumpsuit and glasses. After the private attorney his wife hired for his defense told the judge the firm was declining to represent him, Morales was appointed a public defender and placed back in custody under $10.3 million bail. He faces up to 300 years in state prison if convicted as charged, said district attorney’s office spokeswoman Sarah Ardalani in a written statement. The first attack prosecutors accused Morales of committing occurred in 2016, either late on Oct. 9 or early Oct. 10. They continued every few months until this year — the last attack Morales was charged for happened on New Year’s Eve. Sgt. Steven Carr, a spokesman for the Alhambra Police Department, said police arrested Morales in connection to that final attack on Dec. 30, 2017. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rhonda Re: Desktop Themes Dear Webby, First let me say thanks for all the tips, jokes and of course those outrageously cool pics you send daily.

A feisty 70 year old woman had to call a furnace repairman. After a quick inspection the man put some oil into the motor and handed her a $70 bill for labor. "Labor charges!" she exclaimed. "It took you five minutes." The repairman explained that his company had a minimum one-hour charge on every house call. "Well, I want my remaining 55 minutes of labor," the lady responded, and she handed him a rake. The repairman spent the next 54 minutes in her yard bagging leaves. And one minute making sure that traveling charges were itemized separately, and that she would never ever get a house call again.

A farm boy accidentally overturned his wagonload of wheat on the road. The farmer that lived nearby came to investigate. "Hey, Willis," he called out, "forget your troubles for a while and come and have dinner with us. Then I'll help you overturn the wagon." "That's very nice of you," Willis answered, "but I don't think Dad would like me to." "Aw, come on, son!" the farmer insisted. "Well, OK," the boy finally agreed, "but Dad won't like it." After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked the host. "I feel a lot better now, but I know Dad's going to be real upset." "Don't be silly!" said the neighbor. "By the way, where is he?" "Under the wagon," replied Willis. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Refurbishing Plastic Spatulas Over time, the edges of plastic spatulas get dull and rough.

Thirty minutes later the captain announced, "One more engine has failed and the flight will take an additional two hours. But don't worry, we can fly just fine on two engines." An hour later the captain announced, "One more engine has failed and our arrival will be delayed another three hours. But don't worry...we still have one engine left."

_____________________________________________________ Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing their contract's sick-leave provisions. One morning at the bargaining table, the company's chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, "This man," he announced, "called in SICK yesterday!" There on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score. The silence in the room was broken by a union negotiator. "Wow," he said. "Think of what kind of score he could have had if he hadn't been sick!" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Taj Dickerson, Groton, Connecticut Cop injured during traffic stop after hanging out of car for a mile Police confirm one of their own was injured during a traffic stop overnight after a suspect took off with the officer halfway inside the car. The Deputy Chief of Groton police says that just before 4 a.m., Officer Tyler DeAngelo pulled over a car driven by Taj Dickerson. Officer DeAngelo smelled marijuana, and Dickerson admitted to having some on him. A back--up unit arrived, and Dickerson went along with the officer's request to step out of his car. Dickerson informed officers that he had a pit bull inside the car, and officers told him to take the dog out. A further search found crack cocaine, and officers made to arrest Dickerson. While they were putting the dog inside the cruiser, Dickerson ran back to his car. Officer DeAngelo chased after Dickerson, and a fight erupted inside the car. While Officer DeAngelo continued to struggle with Dickerson, Dickerson was able to put the car into drive and sped awa with DeAngelo partially hanging out. The car continued west on Fort Hill Road, and onto Poquonnock Road. DeAngelo tried getting Dickerson to stop as the car reached 50 mph. Officer DeAngleo remained halfway out of the car for around 1 mile. When it seemed that Dickerson was steering the car at a telephone pole, Office DeAngelo grabbed the steering wheel and steered them away. DeAngelo then let go of the car, and fell onto Poquonnock Road, sustaining some non-life threatening injuries. Other officers stopped and helped him while some others chased Dickerson onto I-95 south. Dickerson continued into New London, and with the help of the New London Police Department, was able to be stopped. Dickerson was finally taken into custody without any other issues. It was not reported whether Dickerson managed to toss dope or guns during the escape. He was held on a $500,000 bond, and taken to Superior Court for arraignment. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lee Re: Possibly fake online account Dear Webby, "log into your online account" might be misunderstood by some not aware readers.

An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out. The next day he was back. He resumed his position in the hallway and slept for an hour. This continued for several weeks. Curious, I pinned a note to his collar: "Every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap." The next day the dog arrived with a different note pinned to his collar: "He lives in a home with 10 children - he's trying to catch up on his sleep.

There was laughter in court when Barbara Woodward’s lawyer insisted she would struggle to walk just a quarter of a mile from her mansion to the main road. Woodward also asked to be spared doing unpaid work claiming it would “put her in an alien surrounding’’ as she never worked in her life and warned it would “make her feel uncomfortable and out of her depth.’’ JPs found her guilty of drunk-driving and banned her for two years but spared her the customarily assessed unpaid community work, since it would be undue hardship for others to have to put up with her whining. Her huge mansion appears to have annexes for servants, gardeners, drivers, etc. Having a servant drive her to tennis and shopping does not appear to be a problem. Woodward, of Chelford, Cheshire, was three times over the limit in her £79,000 ($110,858.68 USD)Mercedes G-class 4x4 two days after her lawyer husband’s funeral. Staff at a petrol station called police after she slurred her words and stumbled when buying sparkling wine at 9am. Woodward, who had denied drink-driving, was also ordered to complete a 12-month community order, fined £560 ($785.87 USD) and must pay £705 ($989.32 USD) in costs and surcharges. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sue Re: Is it spam or scam?

A man is at Grand Central Station waiting for his train that leaves at 6 p.m., but he has forgotten his watch. So he looks for someone to ask the time. He spots a guy carrying two suitcases and sporting this fabulous hi-tech watch, so he asks him for the time. The guy replies "Sure, which country?" The fella asks, "How many countries have you got?" to which the man replies, "All the countries in the world!" "Wow! That's a pretty cool watch you've got there." "That's nothing," the man says. "This watch also has a GPS facility, fax, e-mail and can even receive NTSC television channels and display them on its miniature active color pixel LCD screen!" "Boy, that's incredible. I wish I had a watch like that one. You wouldn't consider selling it by any chance?" "Well, actually the novelty has worn off for me, so for $900, if you want it, it's yours." The watchless traveler can hardly whip out his checkbook fast enough to hand over a check for $900. The seller takes off the watch and gives it to him. "Congratulations, here is you new hi-tech watch." Then, handing the two suitcases over as well, he says, "And here are the batteries."

Taxiing down the tarmac, the Delta jet abruptly stopped, turned around and returned to the gate. After an hour long wait, it finally took off. A concerned passenger asked the flight attendant, "What was the problem?" "The pilot was bothered by a noise he heard in the engine," she explained. "Oh, and it took a while to fix it," said the passenger. "Not exactly." replied the stewardess, "It just took us a bit to find a deaf pilot." ---------------------- I had a ticket to fly to Nashville, Tennessee on Sept 12, 2001 Well, because of some Mooselims using jets to murder over 3000 people, nobody was allowed to fly anywhere on Sept 12. On Sept 13, Canada opened up the airports again and I got booked on a similar flight. I got onto the plane, a different seat than expected, but I got on. And sat for about 2 hours waiting for the take-off. They make you keep the seats upright, in the most uncomfortable position, while waiting on the tarmack. The pilot had gotten cold feet and had chickened out. They had to find a different pilot, who was not such a coward. Naturally, by the time I got to Toronto, the plane to Tennessee had left. I asked Karma to retaliate and hoped the air line fired the chicken! I had to overnight in Toronto and send the Humor Letter out the hard way. The next morning I found out that my Carry-On, with the laptop inside, was not allowed on board. Then I almost had a heart attack watching some big bozo slam my carry-on UPSIDE DOWN onto the hard roller at the bottom of the conveyor up to the cargo hatch of the plane, and even turn and grin. He was proud of himself! I was standing at the entrance of the plane and I guess I must have shrieked or cussed. Thhe stewardess standing there slowing down the line into the plane, explained to me that putting the luggage on upside down was the rule, so that it would not roll off the conveyor belt. That was no excuse though for slamming it onto the hard bottom roller, and I did not enjoy the flight at all. Everybody else on the plane was worried about Mooselims trying to take over the jet. I was fretting about my laptop and was more than ready to inflict very gross violence on anybody trying to annoy me just one hair more. They let me off the plane first because I bulldozed past the people, who were getting their stuff from the overhead bins. My carry-on came onto the carousel shortly after I got there. I opened it up right there, opened the laptop and hit the button. It came up just fine. Phew!!! Thank you Lord! So I zipped up the carry-on and strode out of the totally empty airport. No other planes had arrived yet or were scheduled to leave, and nobody from the jet I arrived in, had walked as fast as I did. The empty and totally silent airport echoed and amplified my steps like it was a horror movie. Spooky! Once I was out, had gotten my pre-ordered rental car, and was on the freeway South I finally relaxed. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Plastic Cutting Boards for Meat When cutting meat, use a plastic cutting board instead of a wood one. It is much easier to clean bacteria from a plastic cutting board than it is from wood, which will also need to be reseasoned after cleaning. After using a cutting board for meat, wash it well (or wash it in the dishwasher) before using it again to avoid transfering bacteria to other food items. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com When your plastic cutting board gets too marked up from sharp knifes, you can scrape it with a long straight butcher knife or a wide putty knife or spatula that has been square trimmed for scraping. To square trim a putty knife, clamp a file into a vise or a partially opend drawer, and rub the putty knife at a right angle to the file against the serrations. Instead of a thin knife type edge, you will get a flat edge with very sharp corners. A square trimmed putty knife also works very well for scraping glue or paint off a desk or for preparing furniture for painting. You can trim a fuzzy cutting board to smooth as new very quickly with a square trimmed putty knife. Hold it at nearly right angle to the board and PULL it towards you. Never push it, just scrape towards you. If there are deep cuts, rotate the board after a few scrapes so that you are scraping in a different direction. That helps to avoid low spots. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________ A young lady came home from a date, rather sad. She told her mother, "Jeff proposed to me an hour ago." "Then why are you so sad?" her mother asked. "Because he also told me he was an atheist. Mom, he doesn't even believe there's a hell." Her mother replied, "Marry him anyway. Between the two of us, we'll show him how wrong he is."

Three preachers sat discussing the best positions for prayer while a telephone repairman worked nearby. "Kneeling is definitely best," claimed one. "No," another contended. "I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven." "You're both wrong," the third insisted. "The most effective prayer position is lying prostrate, face down on the floor." The repairman could contain himself no longer. "Hey, fellas, " he interrupted, "the best prayin' I ever did was hangin' by my climbing spurs upside down from a telephone pole in a thunderstorm." ___________________________________________________

"We charge $50 to clean a printer," he says, "so you might be better off reading the manual and doing the job yourself."

Adrienne Satterly, 41, allegedly piled matresses on the floor of his home in Atlanta, Ga, before setting them alight. But the blaze, which she set while it was dark in the early hours of Sunday, spread to neighboring homes, forcing residents to flee. Satterly then walked to a Walmart an hour away and called 911 around 3.25am to come pick her up. She did not mention the fire. In 911 audio obtained on Tuesday by The Constitution, Satterly never mentioned a fire. She told a dispatcher she had a 'kitty cat and a suitcase' and asked if someone could pick her up from Walmart. 'Where do you need them to go?' the dispatcher asked. 'To Greystone,' Satterly said. 'By the hospital.' She gave her address to the Rosemont Court home but told the dispatcher that she had been ordered to leave the residence due to a court case. Documents revealed police had been called to the home nearly two dozen times in the past year for calls including domestic disputes, thefts and disagreements with tenants who were renting a room. The report had no details about why court had ordered her to leave her ex-husband's home, but it seems her alcohol problems and refusal to contribute to the rent were some of the issues. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Erin Re: Weed out Gmail Dear Webby, In 2005 you told me that Gmail had near unlimited storage. Well, I forgot that "near" is not the same as absolulte, and I got a warning, that I was getting close to my limit. I am, for a change, not blaming you. Dumping SPAM and TRASH gave me enough space to stop panicking. Now, how do I get rid of the oldest mails? I never look up anything over a year old anyway. Thanks Erin Dear Erin Go into the settings in the sprocket icon, and change the mails per page to 100. Then click the < > on top to show Oldest On Top Set up convenient HotKeys for Select all (on the page) and Delete ALL (selected) I use ~ and ! for those. While in the INBOX, with Oldest on top, I hit ~! and the 100 oldest are gone. Great finger exercise while you are waiting for something to load. If you want to get really rambunctious, and automate it, make a filter. Step 1 Log in to your Gmail account. Click the gear icon near the top-right corner of the window, then click "Settings" from the drop-down menu that appears. Step 2 Click the "Filters" section tab, then click "Create a new filter." Step 3 Type the following in the the "Has the words" text box: older_than:x For "x" you should type the time frame you prefer for deleting old messages. You can use "d" for days, "w" for weeks, "m" for months and "y" for years. For example, if you wanted to delete messages older than one month, you would type "older_than:1m" without the quotation marks. For deleting messages older than 9 months, type "older_than:9m". Step 4 Click "Create filter with this search." Step 5 Check the box beside the option labeled "Delete it" and the box beside "Also apply filter to." The latter option will also list the total number of conversations that fit your criteria. That might take a while. Step 6 Click "Create filter." All your emails older than the date you specified will be deleted. Future Deletion Step 1 Click the gear icon in Gmail; then click "Settings." Step 2 Click the "Filters" tab. Step 3 Click the "Edit" option beside the filter you created for deleting old messages. You can easily find the correct filter because it will display the criteria you specified. Step 4 Click "Continue" in the section that appears with your search criteria. This screen looks like the section that appeared when you originally set up the filter. Step 5 Check the box beside the option "Also apply filter to." Step 6 Click "Update filter." This will again delete all your messages earlier than the time frame you specified. When Gmail deletes your messages, they are sent to the "Trash" section, which is listed in the left-hand navigation section. They will remain in Trash for 30 days until they are permanently deleted. You delete all items in the trash if you prefer by click the "Trash" section and then clicking "Empty Trash now." UNTIL you dump the Gmail TRASH, all that stuff still counts against your allotment. Dumping the trash should be the last and final part of the cleanup. Have FUN! DearWebby

With no warning and clear out of the blue, a husband said to his wife, "Honey, I have invited a friend home for supper tonight." His wife replied, "What? Are you crazy? The house is a mess, I didn't have time to go shopping, all the dishes are dirty, and I don't feel like cooking a fancy meal tonight!" The husband said, "Yes, same as usual. I know all that." "Then why in the world did you invite your friend for supper tonight?" asked the wife. The guy answered, "Because the poor fool is thinking about getting married."

Thanks to Walter the stonecarver from http://stonecarver.com for this report: The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even" A Bit Cross." Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was during the great fire of 1666. Also, the French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country's military capability. It's not only the English and French that are on a heightened level of alert. Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides." The Germans also increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbor" and "Lose." Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual, and the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Protecting Plants From Slugs Cut old metal window screens into 1x1 squares.

Latest news reports advise that a cell of 4 terrorists has been operating in Merseyside, Liverpool. Police advised earlier today that 3 of the 4 have been detained. The Merseyside Regional Police Commissioner stated that the terrorists Bin Sleepin, Bin Drinkin and Bin Fightin have been arrested on immigration issues. The Police advise further that they can find no one fitting the description of the fourth cell member, Bin Workin, in the area. Police are confident that anyone who looks like Workin will be very easy to spot in their community. ___________________________________________________

Good Morning, ,
Today is Sunday, February 25


Callisburg Independent School District in Texas has a serious message
for any potential shooters, and it appears to be working.

The idea of armed educators is nothing new. CNN reported that about
four years ago, the “guardian” program was implemented. The program
allowed a small force of volunteer school staff to carry concealed
firearms on school grounds.

The educators complete active shooter scenario training once a year
and also practice at gun ranges.

Callisburg High School is not alone. KSAT reported that the Texas
Association of School Boards said it was aware of 172 districts that
allow staff to carry firearms.

While the debate about whether educators should be armed rages on,
these schools have already taken the necessary steps to protect
children years ago. Just the signs are new.

Other schools across the nation also have armed educators.

Good for them!

Have FUN!

One of the comments made inthis column refered to it. Signed - The ignorantly uninformed.... aka Kathy Dear Kathy If you look at the right side menu, you see a button for MailWasher. It is the best and most effective spam control. That is why I give it space there, and have for about 20 years. It is a program to eliminate spam. As you saw in the tech support pits column, it's tough enough to work even for big corporations that get tons of mail. If you get enough spam, so that it is a nuisance, get the free trial and try it out! MailWasher washes your mail on the server, and does not waste your time and your allotment with downloading crap. It works great as is, but the real power is in the easy to make filters. It gets to be a real game outsmarting the spammers. Have FUN! DearWebby

The family had finally gotten their first dishwasher. The father liked to inspect every new thing that cam into the house, so he stayed in the kitchen and watched the display count down all forty-four minutes of the dishwashing cycle. Suddenly he called out for his wife, shouting, "It's useless, the dishwasher is useless!" The wife was amazed that the newest appliance could be broken after only one use, but he insisted that because they had a water softener, the dishwasher was useless. She decided to look for herself, and there it was, on the inside door, next to the detergent dispenser: USE LESS WITH SOFT WATER

______________________________________________________ The best measure of a man's honesty isn't his income tax return. It's the zero adjust on his bathroom scale. --- Arthur C. Clarke (1917 - ) ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Sandie for this story: A couple was invited to a swanky masked Halloween Party. She got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone. He, being a devoted husband, protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed, and there was no need for his good time to be spoiled by not going. So he took his costume and away he went. The wife, after sleeping soundly for about an hour, awakened without pain; and, as it was still early, decided to go to the party after all. In as much as her husband didn't know what costume she'd be wearing, she thought she'd have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she wasn't around. She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every chick he could, getting a little kiss here and a warm squeeze there. His wife went up to him, and being rather seductive herself, he left his current partner high and dry and devoted his time to this new babe who had just arrived. She let him do whatever he wished, naturally, since he was her husband. Finally he whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed, so off they went to one of the cars and they did it all! Zowie! Just before unmasking at midnight, she slipped away and went home, put the costume away and got into bed, wondering what kind of explanation he would have for his behavior. She was sitting up reading when he came in. She asked how the evening had been? He said "Oh, the same old thing. You know, I never have a good time when you're not there." Then she asked, "Did you dance much?" He replied, "You know, I didn't dance even one dance. When I got there, I met Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys, so we went into the den and played poker all evening. But I'll tell you...from what I heard, the guy I loaned my costume to sure had a real good time!" ______________________________________________________ >From Wendy Have you heard the one about the Marine and the Air Force man, sitting over drinks in a bar one night bragging about the women they had made love to? The Marine bet the Air Force man that he could have sex more times in one night then the Air Force men could. The AF man was married, so he took that bet.. figuring his wife would go along with it. He went home and dragged the chalk board from the children's bedroom into their bedroom... and every time he and his wife made love he put a mark on the board. The sun was just coming up as the AF man dragged himself to the edge of the bed to put a third line on that chalkboard, at which time the Marine walked in and took a look at the chalkboard and said, "A hundred and eleven?

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Connie for this advice: Ski season will be here soon! Hence, the following list of exercises to get you prepared: 16. Visit your local butcher and pay $30 to sit in the walk- in freezer for a half an hour. Afterwards, burn two $50 dollar bills to warm up. 15. Soak your gloves and store them in the freezer after every use. 14. Fasten a small, wide rubber band around the top half of your head before you go to bed each night. 13. If you wear glasses, begin wearing them with glue smeared on the lenses. 12. Throw away a hundred dollar bill-now. 11. Find the nearest ice rink and walk across the ice 20 times in your ski boots, carrying two pairs of skis, accessory bag and poles. Pretend you are looking for your car. Sporadically drop things. 10. Place a small but angular pebble in your shoes, line them with crushed ice, and then tighten a C-clamp around your toes. 9. Buy a new pair of gloves and immediately throw one away. 8. Secure one of your ankles to a fire hydrant and ask a friend to run into you at high speed. With a bike. 7. Go to McDonald's and insist on paying $8.50 for a hamburger. Be sure you are in the longest line. 6. Clip a lift ticket to the zipper of your jacket and ride a motorcycle fast enough to make the ticket lacerate your face. 5. Drive slowly for five hours - anywhere - as long as it's in a snowstorm and you're following an 18-wheeler. 4. Fill a blender with ice, hit the pulse button and let the spray blast your face. Leave the ice on your face until it melts. Let it drip into your clothes. 3. Dress up in as many clothes as you can and then proceed to take them off because you have to go to the bathroom. 2. Slam your thumb in a car door. Don't go see a doctor. 1. Repeat all of the above every Saturday and Sunday until it's time for the real thing! ---------- Awww, it's not that bad. Keep in mind that your adoring fans will laugh their butts off when they watch you doing all that! _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Angelica Cierniewski, 22, New Britain, Connecticut Connecticut woman brought heroin to boyfriend in hospital, who OD'd Police said a 22-year-old New Britain woman was arrested for bringing her boyfriend heroin while he was a patient at St. Francis Hospital.

Marion County Sheriff’s officials arrested 52-year-old David W. Romig on Tuesday. Investigators said he staged the crime scene to make it look like an intruder entered the Dunnellon home on Jan. 30 and killed 64-year-old Sally Kaufmann-Ruff. The Ocala Star-Banner reports detectives found evidence that didn’t match Romig’s story about the home invasion. Then, he sent two text messages saying he thought he was going to be arrested.

Ivan Bakh, 61, was charged when his neighbors called police to report that they were awakened by a loud bang and found a large hole in the headboard of their beds, just over their heads. A second hole was discovered in the dresser mirror at the foot of the victims’ bed, police say. Further investigation from the victims uncovered another hole in the adjacent living room (on the other side of the wall from the dresser mirror) and a fourth hole in the living room’s far wall. After police were summoned, they made contact with Bakh, the victims’ next-door neighbor, according to the police report. An investigation of his apartment revealed a large hole through the wall between his apartment and the victims’ next door. Several books were found, taped together and propped on a shelf. One had a target drawn on the cover in red marker, police say. The books appeared to be perforated by several rounds, according to police. A 9 mm shell casing was located in the hallway between the bathroom and the bedroom of Bakh’s residence, police say. Also located inside the home was a safe containing a 9 mm Glock. The rounds located inside the magazine of the Glock handgun were a match to the 9mm spent casing located on the ground inside the residence, according to police. Bakh was charged with shooting into a dwelling and reckless discharge of a firearm and transported to Lee County Jail, police say. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Maria Re: Hotmail woes Dear Webby, Hi Dear Webby, I miss you........the last letter I received from you is this one.

When I was working as a clerk at a sporting-goods store, a woman came up to my register with a package of white athletic socks. "Will you open this so I can see how the socks feel?" she asked. Reluctantly I tore open the package, and she scrutinized the merchandise. She handed me the package, saying, "I'll take them." Relieved, I started to ring her up, until she interrupted me. "Can I have another pack? This one's been opened." I told her: "I'll go talk to the manager", locked the till, took the opened package and dropped it back on the shelf on my way to a better job.

The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers. He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?" Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster, the boss asked, "Is your daddy home?" "Yes," whispered the small voice. "May I talk with him?" the man asked. To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No." Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?" "Yes," came the answer. "May I talk with her?" Again the small voice whispered, "No." Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left home alone, the boss decided he would just leave a message with the person who should be there watching over the child. "Is there any one there besides you?" the boss asked the child. "Yes," whispered the child, "A policeman." Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?" "No, he's busy," whispered the child. "Busy doing what?" asked the boss. "Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the fireman," came the whispered answer. Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, "What is that noise?" "A hello-copper," answered the whispering voice. "What is going on there?" asked the boss, now alarmed. In an awed, whispering voice, the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper." Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated, the boss asked, "Why are they there?" Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle, "They're looking for me."

I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is? When they point at their wrist, I look at THEIR wrist, and tell them "I dont know." 2. People who are willing to hunt all over the house to search for the T.V. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change the channel manually. 3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it? 4 When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they? 5 When people say while watching a movie "did you see that?". No Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the floor. 6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?"... Didn't really give me a choice there, did ya sunshine? I tell them "NO!, I am allergic to questions." 7. When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new, then there has neve r been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new. 8. When people say "life is short". What the hell?? Life is the longest thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's longer? 9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus come yet?". Think about it...If the bus came would I be standing here?
A honeymoon couple is in the Watergate Hotel in Washington. The bride is concerned "What if the place is still bugged?" The groom says, "I'll look for a bug." He looks behind the drapes, behind the pictures, under the rug "AHA!" Under the rug was a disc with four screws. He gets his Swiss army knife, unscrews the screws, throws them and the disc out the window. The next morning, the hotel manager asks the newlyweds "How was your room? How was the service? How was your stay at the Watergate Hotel?" The groom says, "Why are you asking me all of these questions?" The hotel manager says, "Well, the room under you complained about the chandelier falling on them!" ___________________________________________________

The Reverend Stennett Kirby, 64, was filmed in the £1.5 million ($ 2,103,261.82 USD) vicarage of West Ham Parish Church in East London, which he lives in. He has been the vicar of the church since 2007, and is considered a respected member of the community, but is currently on sick leave for unknown reasons. In the shocking footage obtained by the Sun on Sunday, he appears to be smoking from a crack pipe before he struggles to snort a line of white powder as he relaxes with a friend. At one point, he seems to be watching pornography and says: ‘All I want now is for a woman to be sucking my dick that would be nice. ‘How much would a woman cost to come here? In other words if I really want it then I will pay for it.’ His friend reportedly then says he prefers prostitutes to relationships, which unmarried Mr Kirby, who is currently on sick leave from work, agrees to. The footage then seems to show him talking about his plans to go into Central London and buy more drugs. He says: ‘I’m going to Soho with my mate for dinner. ‘I’m going to sex shops to get some poppers.’ _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Elsa Re: Making a PDF file Dear Webby, Like most of your fans, I barely remember the topics that you have talked about, but not the gory details. OK, how do I make a PDF file? I dont have the ridiculously expensive Microsoft office or 365, just Office Libre. I tried SAVE AS, but PDF is not an option. Thanks Elsa Dear Elsa PDF is not a 2-way street. Once you export it as a PDF, you would need a different program, like Nitro, to convert it back to editable text. To make a PDF, go into Libre Office WRITE, hit FILE scroll down to EXPORT AS PDF. That EXPORTS to a new and separate file. You can use a different file name and destination, for example on a thumb drive or camera chip. The original text file will not be renamed or changed in any way. The program basically "takes a picture" of it and exports that picture. Because it is quite a nuisance to edit a PDF, if you have to make changes, just edit the original text file and export it again. Have FUN! DearWebby

Bob decided to try his hand at a new job and secured one as a used car salesman. He had no experience in this field but he figured he could use the old sales pitch that the car was "like brand-new" and had only been driven by a little old lady on Sundays. He tried that approach on every prospective buyer but none seemed to believe him and no sales were made that day. The following day he decided to change his sales pitch, and sure enough he sold three cars. The manager of the used car dealership called him over and asked what he had done to bring about all these sales. Bob grinned, "Well they didn't believe my little old lady story, so I told them that the car had previously been owned by a nymphomaniac who only used the backseat."

After a lengthy sitting before the mirror applying the "miracle" products, she asks her husband, "Darling, honestly, if you didn't know me, what age would you say I am?" Looking over her carefully, Andy replied, "Judging from your skin, 20; your hair, 18; your eyes, 16, and your figure, 25." "Oh, you flatterer!" she gushed.

He takes sips from each glass until they are empty and calls the bartender for three more. The bartender says, "Hey, pal, I don't mind bringing one at a time, then they'll be fresh and cold." "Nah... ahm preferrin' that ya bring 'em three at a time. You see, me and me two brothers would meet at a pub and drink and have good times. Now one is in Australia, the other in Canada and I'm here. We agreed before we split up that we'd drink this way to each other's honor." "Well," says the bartender, "that's a damn good sentimental thing to do. I'll bring the pints as you ask." Well, time goes on and the Irishman's peculiar habit is known and accepted by all the pub regulars. One day, the Irishman comes in and orders only two pints. A hush falls over the pub. Naturally, everyone figures something happened to one of the brothers. A bunch of the regulars corner the bartender and finally persuade him to find out what happened. With a heavy heart, the bartender brings the two pints and says, "Here's your pints... and let me offer my sincerest condolences. What happened?" The Irishman looks extremely puzzled for a moment. When the light comes on in his head, he starts laughing. "No, no! 'Tis nothing like that. You see, I've gotten married and promised to give up drinking. Hasn't affected my brothers, though." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Martin for this story: An oldie I used to tell about 40 years ago. Three Italian nuns die and go to heaven. At the Pearly Gates, they are met by St. Peter. He says, "Sisters, you all led such exemplary lives that the Lord is granting you six months to go back to earth and be anyone you wish to be. The first nun says, "I want to be Sophia Loren;" and poof, she's gone. The second says, "I want to be Madonna" and poof, she's gone. The third says, "I want to be Sara Pipalini.." St. Peter looks perplexed. "Who?" he asks. "Sara Pipalini;" replies the nun. St. Peter shakes his head and says, "I'm sorry, but that name just doesn't ring a bell." The nun then takes a newspaper out of her habit and hands it to St. Peter. St. Peter reads the article in the paper and starts laughing. He hands it back to the nun and says, "No, sister, the paper says it was the 'Sahara Pipeline' that was laid by 1,400 men in 6 months."

Grandpa looked over at her, smiled and obligingly took her aged hand in his. With a wry little smile, Grandma pressed a little farther, "Honey, do you remember how after we were engaged, you'd sometimes lean over and suddenly kiss me on the cheek?" Grandpa leaned slowly toward Grandma and gave her a lingering kiss on her wrinkled cheek. Growing bolder still, Grandma said, "Honey, do you remember how, after we were first married, you'd kind of nibble on my ear?" Grandpa slowly got up from his rocker and headed into the house.

Thanks to Vern for this story: Preparing for a tag sale at our house, my wife and I decided to put out a mirror we'd received as a wedding gift. Because of its garish aqua colored metal frame we just couldn't find a room in our house where it looked good. Shortly after the tag sale started, a man looking to decorate his apartment bought it for one dollar. "This is a great deal," he said excitedly." It still has the plastic on it." Then he peeled off the aqua colored protective covering to reveal a beautiful gold finished frame.

What's the usual tip?" a man growled when the college boy who delivered his pizza.

When shopping, always note the "sell by" date. Most foods will last a week past the "sell by" date. If you don't think you can use it in that amount of time look around for a product with a later "sell by" date. If you already own food you won't be able to use, simply freeze it by the "sell by" date.

A short time later, she started leaning off to her left, so again the family grabbed her and stuffed pillows on her left. Soon she started leaning forward, so the family members again grabbed her, then tied a pillowcase around her waist to hold her up.

_____________________________________________________ From Bausell Sailor: 2 Chinese Burglars> _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Brian Roberto Varela, 19 Lynnwood, Washington Man raped teen as she died from overdose, texted 'LOL' to friends A 19-year-old Washington state man, who police say raped a high school student as she died from a drug overdose and texted semi-nude photos of her, has been charged with manslaughter. Brian Roberto Varela of Lynnwood was also charged Friday in Snohomish County Superior Court with second-degree rape and controlled substance homicide in the death of 18-year-old Alyssa Mae Noceda. According to court documents, Varela told detectives that Noceda snorted Percocet and also ingested liquid marijuana before collapsing in his room the previous weekend. Authorities say Varela never sought help for Noceda, instead sending semi-nude photos of her to friends and texting “LOL, I think she od’d, still breathing.” Authorities say his co-worker contacted police Tuesday after Varela said he didn’t know if Noceda was still alive when he was having sex with her. Court records say he told a friend that “she died having sex with me.” Police arrested Varela later that day after executing a search warrant and finding Noceda’s body in a plastic crate at the suspect’s home. Varela told investigators he planned to bury Noceda with onions to minimize the odor, police said. He also told detectives that after Noceda died, he used her thumb to unlock her phone Feb. 4 and send messages to make it appear she had run away. Friends of Noceda, a student at Mariner High School, held a vigil for her on Friday with more than 100 people taking part, including her mother. “The night that she left, she told me, she said, ‘Mom, I love you,’” said Gina Pierson. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Libby Re: Not getting subscription Dear Webby, the web site and read the Humor Letter so that I wouldn't miss anything.

Thanks to Sandie for this story: A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon. Four worms were placed into four separate jars. The first worm was put into a container of alcohol. The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke. The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup. The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil. At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results: The first worm in alcohol - Dead. The second worm in cigarette smoke - Dead . Third worm in chocolate syrup - Dead . Fourth worm in good clean soil - Alive. So the Minister asked the congregation - What can you learn from this demonstration? Maxine, who was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said, "As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!"

Thanks to Allen for this story: Before our daughter went off to college, our family took a vacation in Colorado. So we flew to Denver and rented a car. We visited the Royal Gorge Bridge, which is more than 1000 feet above the Arkansas River. Walking out onto the bridge, I noticed it swaying in the wind. Then a car went past us, and the wood-plank roadway moved beneath my feet. "I don't think I want to drive the car across this bridge," I finally said. "What are you worried about?" our daughter replied. "It's a rental." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Tote Bag Made from a Dog Food Bag By KIM HOGGAN [76 Posts, 130 Comments] Create a pretty tote bag from a dog food bag, in just a few simple steps. Tote Bag Made from a Dog Food Bag By KIM HOGGAN [76 Posts, 130 Comments] Guide Making a Tote Bag from a Dog Food Bag Total Time: 1/2 hr. or more depending on sewing speed or if using duct tape instead Supplies: dry dog or cat food bag scissors big thick needle with thick thread or duct tape if those aren't available hot glue gun to glue on ornaments or use stickers and paint Steps: Get any size dry dog or cat food bag. Cut the top off and empty. Turn bag inside out. Cut another strand off. That will become the two handles. (I think she means a one inch wide strip of material off the top, then cut the loop at each side crease so that you get 2 strips) Cut both ends so they measure equally. Fold about an inch over inward and make a crease all around top of tote. Sew or apply duct tape all around top edge. Fold over bottom of handles about 1/2 inch and sew before sewing onto tote. Otherwise again use duct tape if you can't or don't know how to sew. Sew handles a few inches away from the ends. Lastly use a glue gun to glue on ornaments, apply stickers, or paint your tote! :) Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com I used to make dogsled bags from the big 50 lb bags, but put thin yellow rope into the top roll-over, and use that as a drawstring. No electricity in the bush there in the 70`s, so I used a hand crank Singer. Worked quite well. They are very slippery on snow, though!

One day our Little niece Rita, went up to her mother and asked, "Mom, where did I come from?" My sister in law stammered a bit, but finally got her composure. She thought it was time her daughter knew the facts of life. So, she told Little Rita how the expression of love resulted in the beginning of life, how life developed in the womb and finally how a child was born. As my sister in law gave the whole story, Rita's eyes got wider and wider. When She was finished, Little Rita said "Wow, that's really neat. That sure better than what Uncle Rusty told me.

Rio Carnival 




Good Morning, ,
Today is Friday, February 16
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!


From Cesar:

Carnival in Rio

Woooooaauwwwww!!!!!!
You have NEVER seen anything like that!
Makes New Orleans Mardi Gras look like a brief fart in the dark by
comparison! 
They have quarter mile long floats, many hundreds of beautiful dancers
dressed in jewels, jet size animated eagles and dragons, Greek
mythical figures like Neptune rising on a water jet, and so on.

The US float, just for an example has Lincoln reciting his 4 score
speech, the revolutionary war with a few dozen canons, and so on.
It will totally blow your mind.

Dont look at it when you are in a hurry! The whole parade is about an
hour long.

Thanks, Cesar!!!!!!

Willard Hartman faces 11 charges: Possession of narcotic drugs Possession of a firearm on the grounds of a school (five counts) Carrying a concealed weapon (five counts) Benjamin Krohn faces 14 charges: Possession of narcotic drugs Carrying a concealed weapon Possession of a firearm on the grounds of a school (five counts) Carrying a concealed weapon (five counts) Possession of THC Possession of drug paraphernalia According to that letter, Mequon police pulled over the men's vehicle in the Homestead High School parking lot after an officer spotted the vehicle making an illegal U-turn on Mequon Rd. The men said they were in Mequon "because they had a friend on the Sturgeon Bay basketball team participating in a basketball tournament being held at the high school." Superintendent Joynt said in his letter to parents: "While it is unsettling to know that strangers were on our campus over the weekend with guns, they were not targeting anyone here or targeting our school." Hartman was driving, prosecutors say, and Krohn was the front-seat passenger. Hartman told investigators they were at Homestead watching a basketball game "and he did not see the no U-turn sign." While investigating, an officer noted a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from the vehicle and Krohn "stated he had marijuana," according to the complaint. Krohn was searched and a baggie with a small amount of a green, leafy substance believed to be marijuana was found in his jacket pocket, along with brass knuckles, which Krohn said he "uses for protection." The complaint says "an unlocked Taurus handgun" was found on the floorboard behind the driver's seat, and inside the case, an officer found "a Taurus 1911 45 ACP and a magazine with six rounds of .45 caliber ammunition." In the trunk, officers found an AK-47 rifle and a magazine, both empty, an AM-15 rifle with the chamber empty but a 30- round magazine inserted. Additionally, a Glock was found on the front passenger floorboard with a loaded magazine but no rounds in the chamber, and a Kel Tec Sub 2000 was found folded with a magazine next to it in a backpack on the rear passenger floorboard. Prosecutors say investigators found a pill later identified as oxycodone in a baggie inside a duffel bag and four cigar wrappers -- one with the tobacco removed and no paper. They also found a green, leafy substance in the backpack which tested positive for THC. The complaint says Krohn said they'd gone to Homestead to see a friend play basketball and he admitted to smoking marijuana in the parking lot. He said the firearms belonged to him and he "brought them with in case he wanted to trade or sell them to someone." Hartman and Krohn made their initial appearances in court on Feb. 12. Cash bond was set at $5,000. A status hearing was set for March 6. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lee Re: Links not working Dear Webby, When someone sends me an e-mail with a link,and I click on the link nothing happins.I am a novis on computers.

They can be reused, too, so this is a great craft for Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, and many other celebrations. Total Time: 45 minutes Yield: 5 fortune cookies Supplies: pieces of felt ring of masking tape pencil scissors pipe cleaners hot glue gun plain white paper pen Steps: Place the ring of masking tape on top of a piece of felt. Trace around the ring with a pencil. Cut out the circle of felt. Repeat with other pieces of felt. Lay a piece of pipe cleaner over the circle and cut it so it's just a bit shorter than the diameter of the circle. Fold the circle in half to make an indentation at the halfway point. Unfold and use the indentation as a guide to lay down a thin line of hot glue all the way across. Lay a piece of pipe cleaner on top of the hot glue. Press down to secure. Repeat with all the circles. While the glue dries, cut out little strips of white paper shorter than the diameter of the felt circles. Handwrite your messages onto the strips of paper. To shape the circle into a fortune cookie, first fold it in half. Angle the two sides toward each other, bending the wire at its halfway point. Flip over to see the puffier side. Gently peel back one flap of the cookie and insert a fortune. Close back up. They are ready to go!

California killers identified by 19-year-old victim’s last words Officials have identified two people that were arrested Monday in the brutal stabbing death of 19-year-old Lizette Cuesta in Livermore, California. Daniel Gross and Melissa Leonardo, both of Modesto, are suspected of stabbing Cuesta several times and leaving her body on Tesla Road in Livermore. Cuesta was flown to a nearby hospital, where she died. Investigators say Cuesta used her final words to identify her killers. “This victim really tried to survive, and she fought and she fought,” said Sgt. Ray Kelly with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office. “The last thing, we believe, that she was able to do was to point us in the direction of the people that killed her. And that’s pretty remarkable.” Richard Loadholt was carpooling to work with three other friends for an early shift at UPS when they found Cuesta. He told KTXL the young woman was in such bad shape he couldn’t make out the color of her hair. “She laid down for almost three minutes at one period, and we told her to get up. She knew she had to get up and I commend that,” he said. Friend Alex Yanez tells KTXL that Cuesta was a very positive woman and a determined skateboarder. “Guys would fall just as hard and not get back up the rest of the day. She would fall and get right back up and try it,” Yanez said. “If she wanted that trick bad enough she would get it.” _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: David Re: gmail Dear Webby, I writing to ask if you could send me a full version of today's picture.

An automobile salesman was pleasantly bewildered when he sold a new car to a little old lady, some 75 years of age, who had previously resisted his sales pitch. Elated over his success, he asked her, as he was filling out the necessary papers, what had finally made her choose his car. "Well," she said, "I visited four dealers and mentioned your car to all of them. They all agreed on one thing - that your car has the fastest depreciation of all the cars on the market.

He became something of a local joke when a newspaper began keeping a record of his predictions and showed that he'd been wrong almost three hundred times in a single year. That kind of notoriety was enough to get him fired. He moved to another part of the country and applied for a similar job. One blank on the job application called for the reason for leaving his previous position. In the blank he wrote quite honestly, "The climate didn't agree with me."

The Pope is visiting Washington, DC and President Trump takes him out for an afternoon on the Potomac sailing on the Presidential yacht. They're admiring the sights when, all of a sudden, the Pope's hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water. Secret service guys start to launch a boat, but President Trump waves them off, saying, "Wait, wait. I'll take care of this. Don't worry." Trump then steps off the yacht onto the surface of the water and walks out to the Holy Father's little hat, bends over and picks it up, then walks back to the yacht and climbs aboard. He hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence. The next morning the headlines on CNN and in the AOL/New York Times, Boston Globe, Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal, Minneapolis Tribune, Denver Post, Albuquerque Journal, Los Angeles Times and the San Francisco Chronicle proclaim: "Trump Can't Swim", followed by numerous pages of what every Democratic politician has to say about that. ___________________________________________________

When the owner went outside, the car was gone and about an hour away at that time. USA Today reports later that night, the owner received a call from a woman who said a man was asking about the car. Wilson then got on the phone and identified himself as an employee at a glass repair shop. Wilson said he had parked the car, but was unable to restart it and asked the owner to contact someone who could. Police responded to the scene of a suspicious person and found Wilson and the stolen car. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rob A Re: Hidden Pictures in WORD Dear Webby, I understand from my wife that you answer computer problem questions. She speaks highly of you so I thought I would pose a question that I need answered in the worst way... About a week ago I was putting together a letter in Microsoft Word using many pictures. I had pasted in 9 pictures when I clicked on an item in one of the tool bars and instantly the pictures disappeared and in their place were 9 rectangular outlines the size of each picture. Unfortunately, I cannot recall what I clicked on nor exactly where it is located. I have hunted and hunted through the tools to try to restore the pictures but to no avail. Since then I have tried pasting in new pictures on a new Word "sheet" and guess what I get...a rectangle box instead. The box is composed of four connected perpendicular lines and when I click in the center of the "box" the box disappears and I get eight black dots in it's place. I believe what I originally clicked on was an on/off switch of some kind and all that needs to happen is to click on it again to correct the situation. If you know how to restore my pictures or know of someone who does, please tell me. {I have no desire to contact Microsoft because of their high and mighty attitude.} Thanks for your willingness to help others, Dear Rob Wire frames or placeholders are rarely used while writing, but really speed up scrolling while proofreading books or searching for something in a lengthy e-book or article.

One day a State Trooper was pulling off an expressway near Chicago. When he turned onto the street at the end of the ramp, he noticed someone at a chicken place getting into his car.

An Australian bank officer heard the following explanation for a farmer's money troubles: He said, "It all started back in 1966 when they changed pounds to dollars, me bloomin' overdraft doubled. Then they brought in kilograms instead of pounds and me wool clip dropped by half. Then they changed rain to millimeters and we haven't had a inch of rain since. They brought in Celsius and it never got over 40; no wonder me wheat wouldn't grow. Then they changed acres to hectares and I ended up with half the land I had. By that time, I'd had it and decided to sell out. I got the place in the agent's hands and they changed from miles to kilometers. Now, I'm too far out of town for anyone to buy the stinking place." ___________________________________________________

Indonesian Navy seized over a ton of crystal meth that smugglers attempted to disguise in bags of rice The MV Sunrise Glory was intercepted by a navy boat patrolling the Phillip Channel between Singapore and Batam. It was flying the flag of Singapore but the crew changed it for the Indonesian one as the military vessel approached. When the boat was taken to Batam for inspection, 1,029 kilograms (2268 pounds) of crystal methamphetamine were found stashed inside 41 sacks of rice. Navy deputy chief Vice Admiral Achmad Taufiqoerrochman said ‘Last night we discovered more than one tonne of crystal meth and the amount might increase because we have not finished checking everything.’ Four crew members were arrested and the men told their captors that they had planned on taking the drugs to Australia. Indonesia has some of the toughest anti-drugs laws in the world, including capital punishment for traffickers. Officials initially suspected that the Taiwanese fishing boat was a part of a drug syndicate wanted by the Indonesian military. As well as the huge stash of drugs, at least four different national flags and fake documents were found on board, prompting suspicion that the vessel was a ‘phantom ship’ which changes its name and flag depending on which country’s waters it is sailing in to avoid detection. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sandie Re: Screensaver password Dear Webby, Can you tell us all how to set up a screen saver password...

John checked to see if his wallet was safe in the pocket of his coat that was on the seat between them, but it wasn't there! So he slammed on the brakes, ordered the hitchhiker out, and said, "Hand over the wallet immediately!" The frightened hitchhiker handed over a billfold, and John drove off.

The first job the supervisor gives the young man is in sorting, and much to everyone's surprise, the new employee separated the letters so fast that his motions were literally a blur. The supervisor was very pleased and asked the young man to come into his office at the end of the day. He said, "I just want you to know that we are all very proud of you.

The father, being modern and well-schooled in handling children, hid his smile behind his hand. "That's a serious step," he said. "Have you thought it out completely?" "Yes," his young son answered . "We can spend one week in my room and the next in hers. It's right across the street, so I can run home if I get scared of the dark." "How about transportation?" the father asked. "I have my wagon, and we both have our tricycles," the little boy answered. The boy had an answer to every question the father raised. Finally, in exasperation, his dad asked, "What about babies? When you're married, you're liable to have babies, you know." "We've thought about that, too," the little boy replied. "We're not going to have babies. Every time she lays an egg, I'm going to step on it!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Mandarin Duck, similar, but not the same as the Wood Duck. _____________________________________________________

He has been jailed too. A woman has been jailed after she helped a man to rape a girl under the age of 13 twice. Gemma Hill, 33, exchanged messages with boyfriend, Stephen Arnopp, in which they discussed how he would rape the girl. They were also found to have plotted the rape of a nine year old girl. Arnopp was jailed for 11 years for abusing and twice raping the girl under 13 in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, and his victim’s underwear was found at his home. Hill, from Hatfield, was jailed for six years because she told the girl not to report the attacks to police. However, the girl told teachers and the authorities were informed. Judge Marie Catterson, who said Hill had an ‘extremely low’ IQ, said the victim had suffered ‘incalculable’ long-terms effects likely to be ‘difficult and profound’ after the pair admitted all charges against them. Sentencing Hill, she said: ‘You were evasive, pretending you knew nothing.’ She said Arnopp’s abuse required ‘sustained and significant planning’ and it was fortunate the pair were arrested before attacking the second girl. The judge made a Sexual Harm Prevention Order banning the pair from contacting the victims and from living in a house or having any unsupervised contact with girls under the age of 18. Both defendants pleaded guilty to the charges against them. Arnopp was given two concurrent 40-month sentences for two counts of conspiracy to commit sexual activity with a child under 13 and was jailed for eight years consecutively for two counts of raping a child under 13. He was also sentenced to one count of inciting and one count of causing a child to engage in sexual activity, receiving four months concurrent to his other sentences and received eight months, also concurrent, for sexual activity with a child under 13. Hill received two concurrent four and a half-year sentences for two counts of conspiracy to commit sexual activity with a child under 13 and a consecutive 18 month sentence for cruelty to a person under 16. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Anton Re: Instant messengers Dear Webby, Which Instant Messenger is best and which one is the safest? Thanks Anton Dear Anton Skype, free from http://skype.com, is by far the Best, and also the safest. Both it's text and also it's Voice over IP phone calls to other Skype users or to regular land line telephones and cellphones are thoroughly encrypted, it's file transfers are smooth and uncomplicated and fast, and it's log is solid and reliable. I have used Instant Messenger programs for business purposes since 94, and for serious business use, there is no other IM program that can match it. Another important consideration is user base. There are always going to be some snooty newbies, who use only the newest, unproven messenger, and demand that you change over to whatever they favor this week. If they are important enough to you, you can always run those beside Skype. Sooner or later they will get fed up with their new and unproven messenger, or the fact, that very few people use it. With Skype you know that it works to any country, and even though the goofs at Microsoft keep messing with the looks, it has been working well for 20 years, and there are Millions of users. You can even call landlines with it and wake somebody up, or do free video conferencing even on slow connections. On fast connections Google Hangout may have occasionally much better video, but if one side has a slow or erratic connection, it is useless, and you have to switch to Skype. I use Skype for tech support for about 20 years now. It works fine. And once a day I do five - ten minutes of video with my dad in Austria. He is 95 and does not like typing anymore, but sitting back and talking and watching on video works very well. We do it his time at 8 PM and my time at noon, every day. Unlike most messenger programs, the Skype window is not nailed down on prime space. You can move it out of the way, even onto a second monitor, and squish it or spread it to whatever size is best at that time. With Skype you don`t have to have a browser open and on a certain page like the thilly and primitive FaceBook messenger. People can call you even if you are working on a spreadsheet or document and have no browser open. Have FUN! DearWebby

Bob, an experienced sky diver, was getting ready for a jump one day when he spotted another man outfitted to dive wearing dark glasses, carrying a white can and holding a seeing-eye dog by a leash. Shocked that the blind man was also going to jump, Bob struck up a conversation, expressing his admiration for the man's courage. Then, curious, he asked, "How do you know when the ground is getting close?" "Easy," replied the blind man. "The leash goes slack." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Herbal Tea Facial Steamer Try this facial steamer to help wash dirt that builds up in your pores. Boil 1/2 quart of water. Then put two chamomile tea bags (or a handful of dried chamomile flowers) in a bowl and pour the boiling water over them. Put one towel under the bowl and another over your head. Lean over the bowl and breath in the chamomile. If it gets too hot, let steam escape by lifting up the towel. Steam your face for 5 to 10 minutes. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Bunny for this: There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head. "Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today." So she did and she had a wonderful day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. "H-m-m, " she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today." So she did and she had a grand day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. "Well," she said, "Today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail." So she did and she had a fun, fun day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head. "YEAH!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!" Attitude is everything.

The other two pastors nod and he goes on, "Well, it's bats. We can't seem to get these bats out of our attic. The singing and organ playing wake them up, and they start flapping around. Then when I start to preach, we can still hear them moving around up there and it's really hard for anyone to pay any attention. The kids start to cry and, well, it's starting to really get in the way of a good church service." The second pastor says "Well that's interesting, because we've had the same problem, they won't stay out of our belfry. We've tried ringing the bells at all hours, spraying chemicals, we've even had a couple of exterminator companies out. Nothing's worked yet." He throws up his hands in exasperation and shakes his head. The third pastor smiles and nods his head knowingly. "Well, gentlemen. We had that problem a few years ago, and we found a quick solution." he says. The other two pastors look up with hope on their faces, and he goes on, "It was easy. We got up there, got to know 'em a little bit. Pretty soon we had them come on down, got 'em baptized, made them part of the congregation and asked for donations.

Carema Lashandra Brown, 29, was booked into the Jefferson County jail on January 5 after she was charged with two felony theft counts. Unable to post $60,000 bail, Brown was detained at the jail in Brookville, a borough about 80 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. Within a week of Brown’s arrival, jail personnel began investigating the distribution of narcotics inside the facility. During questioning, two female inmates--whose recorded phone calls indicated they had been using LSD--confessed that they obtained the acid from Brown. One of the inmates provided agents with a note allegedly written to them by Brown. “You bitches sound bored! Get on my level! LOL,” the note read. “Please conduct yourselves in a discreet way. Just say I love you when you figure out what I’m talking about.” Armed with a warrant, investigators subsequently searched Brown, who was “trembling” as agents perused her hair. However, “Following the search of the hair no items were recovered,” a probable cause affidavit reports. However, the following day jail staffers removed Brown’s weave and discovered that she had narcotics hidden under her fake hair. A criminal complaint notes that investigators seized eight ounces of cocaine, eight ounces of meth, 78 doses of acid, and a glass pipe with burn marks. The drug discovery resulted in the filing of 18 narcotics counts (nine felonies, nine misdemeanors) against Brown, who is seen above. Her bail was set at $100,000. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Randy Re: Using a TV as a second monitor Dear Webby, I need you expertise again if i may call on you again. I bought a new tower last fall, and for Christmas i received my first smart TV. Now the question is on the back of my computer there is only one port for a HDMI cable to go. is there a adapter that i can plug my TV and my monitor into so i can use both and leave the cable hooked up?????? I think i already know the answer but want to hear from you before i keep searching...thanks for the great epaper..... Thanks again Randy Hi Randy Usually you can plug the TV into the HDMI socket, and the computer monitor into the traditional Video socket, pretty well the same as when you add a second monitor. The problem is pixel density. If your TV is small, the size of your regular computer monitor, it's not too bad, but if you have one of those 54" or 60" TV screens, your text and pictures are going to look crappy, because the same number of pixels are going to be stretched over 60 inches, instead of 21. TV does not fill in and fade between pixels. It relies on being faster than the eye and fooling you. If you want to use a TV as a second computer monitor, don't put it onto your desk, but put it onto the wall six feet away from your couch or your treadmill. Using a TV as a second monitor, so that you can use wider spreadsheets, is a pain in the nuisance because of the different pixels per inch. However, if you use one for writing, and the other for look-up, it apparently works OK. So does, apparently, working on the computer monitor and watching hockey or Netflix on the TV. Electrically it works, just keep the different pixels per inch in mind. Have FUN! DearWebby

Ten Step Guide To Being Handy Around The House 1. If you can't find a screwdriver, use a knife. If you break off the tip, it's an improved screwdriver. 2. Try to work alone. An audience is rarely any help. 3. Above all, if what you've done is stupid, but it works, then it isn't stupid. 4. Work in the kitchen whenever you can ... many fine tools are there, its warm and dry, and you are close to the refrigerator. Harleys, on the other hand, are easier to work with on the coffee table in the living room. Since it probably will never run again anyway, at least it will make a nice conversation piece. 5. If it's electronic, get a new one ... or consult a twelve-year-old. 6. Stay simple minded: Get a new battery; replace the bulb or fuse; see if the tank is empty; try turning the switch "on" ; or just paint over it. 7. Always take credit for miracles. If you dropped the alarm clock while taking it apart and it suddenly starts working, you have healed it. 8. Regardless of what people say, kicking, pounding, and throwing sometimes DOES help. 9.

Two men went bear hunting. While one stayed in the cabin, the other went out looking for a bear. He soon found a huge bear, shot at it but only wounded it. The enraged bear charged toward him, he dropped his rifle and started running for the cabin as fast as he could. He ran pretty fast but the bear was just a little faster and gained on him with every step. Just as he reached the open cabin door, he tripped and fell flat. Too close behind to stop, the bear tripped over him and went rolling into the cabin. The man jumped up, closed the cabin door and yelled to his friend inside, "You skin this one while I go and get another one!" ---------------- Actually, that's from Charlie Chaplin's "GoldRush", the only movie about Canada that I had seen before immigrating in 1970. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Pinch Dead Blooms Pinch off dead blooms from flowering plants.

When the boat grounded on the beach, the officer in charge handed the marooned sailor a bundle of newspapers and told him, "The captain said to read through these and let us know if you still want to be rescued." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Keri Harwood, 28, New River, Arizona Arizona woman arrested for creating and selling child pornography A New River woman is accused of performing and recording sexual acts with two young children and selling them to a man over the Internet. Keri Harwood, 28, is charged with two counts of sexual conduct with a minor, five counts of sexual exploitation of a child for recording the videos, and five counts of sexual exploitation of a child for selling the videos, according to Maricopa County Superior Court records. Authorities say a neighbor who plays Pokemon Go with Harwood found the sexually explicit videos in Harwood's Gmail after noticing several PayPal transactions and reported her to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. The neighbor was able to access Harwood's email account because she gave him her Pokemon Go login information and asked him to catch Pokemon for her, court records said. "Horrible acts of child abuse like this can be stopped with the help of alert members of our community," said Sheriff Paul Penzone in a press release. "If you see something unusual, contact authorities so that we can end this exploitation," he said. Deputies said Harwood was sending videos of her bathing and touching the children, ages 6 and 3 years old, to a man they believe lives in Texas. When confronted by authorities, records show, she claimed that she needed the money and didn't want to disappoint the man, with whom she had been sexting for some time. Court documents said Harwood told police she molested the children on five separate occasions. The Sheriff's Office said they are pursuing a warrant to arrest the man who purchased the videos from Harwood. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Cheryl Re: Pictures on camera chip lost Dear Webby, We just came back home to Australia from a wonderful trip to the USA and my 13 yr old daughter took her new Canon Powershot with a 2.0 GB SD Memory Card to use over there. We had an idyllic stopover in Fiji for 3 days and then had a great time travelling from LA to the Grand Canyon via a lovely little town called Williams on Route 66, Laura happily snapping photos. Spent a day at the canyon then on to Vegas via Hoover Dam. The glitz of Vegas was also great fun to photograph then off to Fresno. It was here that she accidently deleted all the photos she had taken to this point - 700 of them! We are devestated as I don't have a digital camera and so we were both using hers. She still doesn't know how she did it. She said she was trying to move them into a file and then they were gone. Kids these days work things out better than adults, often through experimentation - pity she chose that experiment. Back home, we have removed the disk, plugged it into the computer, and tried to find the lost pics but it looks like they are gone for good. However I heard that there may still be a way of recovering the lost pics. Is that possible? By the way we are VERY impressed with the features and quality of the camera except that it seems too easy to delete photos!! Cheryl Dear Cheryl Too bad you did not go to a hotel with WiFi or McDonalds or Burger king in Fresno and write me then! Just go to http://www.sharewareconnection.com/memo ... estore.htm and use that free software to recover the deleted files. Actually, it's not really that easy to delete the files, but there HAS to be the option to do that. Normally, though, you first upload the pictures to your site or your laptop. Personally I don't like uploading from the camera. I use a $12 chip reader that I can plug into any USB port and make the chip act like an additional hard drive on a computer (laptop, hotel lobby machine, cyber-cafe, etc). Dragging them from there to a web site is easy. Once they are on the web, they are safe. You could also use SearchEverything, search for pictures, and *.jpg That way, if she moved them into a subdirectory or into the MISC directory. I have seen people do that and damn near jump off a cliff. And there were all their pictures safe and sound in the MISC directory on the chip. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Allan for this story: It was last Wednesday night, and I was sitting in my room watching television when the phone rang. "Hello?" I said. A girl's voice came over the line. "Can I speak to Ben, please?" I live by myself, and my name definitely is not Ben. It was probably a wrong number and I was bored. I replied, "I'm sorry, he's not in right now. Can I take a message?" "Do you know what time he'll be back?" she responded. "I think he said he'd be home around 10:00." Silence on the other end... a confused silence. "Is this Steve?" My name isn't Steve, either. This was definitely a wrong number. So I replied, "Yes, it is. Do you want to leave a message for Ben?" "Well... he said he would be home tonight and asked me to call him," she said in a slightly irritated voice. I replied, "Well, he went out with Karen about an hour ago, and said that he would be back at 10:00." A shocked voice now: "Who's Karen?!" "The girl he went out with." "I know that! I mean... who is she?" "I don't know her last name. Look, do you want me to leave a message for Ben?" "Yes... please do. Tell him to call me when he gets home." She was sounding pretty irate at this point, and I could hear her temper flaring. "I sure will. Is this Jennifer?" She exploded, "Who's Jennifer?" Apparently she wasn't. "Well... he's going out with Jennifer at 10:00. I thought you were her. Sorry... it was an honest mistake." "Ben's the one that's made the mistake! Tell him that Alice called him and the she's very upset and that I would like him to call me as soon as he gets home." I smiled and said, "Okay, I will... but Becky isn't going to like this..." *Click!* ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Storing a Large Area Rug Save old belts to use when storing or moving large area rugs.

Old mug shot from previous arrests. He is still on the run. Juan C. Mata-Chavez, 27, Milwaukee, has been charged with knowingly operating a vehicle While Revoked-Causing Death and Hit and Run Resulting in Death in connection with this crash. Police say that Mata-Chavez was driving with a revoked license. Anyone with information is asked to call police. Prosecutors say a man with a revoked license due to a prior DUI offense tried to have his sister's pickup truck reported as "stolen at gunpoint" after a violent hit-and-run crash caught on camera, which took the life of a mother and injured her son after they left church on Super Bowl Sunday. Four people fled the truck after the crash, and one of those people, a passenger in the truck at the time, helped police identify the driver, who is now charged. It's important to note: He is NOT in custody yet! Juan Mata-Chavez, 27, of Milwaukee faces one count of knowingly operating a motor vehicle while revoked, causing the death of another, and one count of hit-and-run resulting in death. The crash happened Sunday, Feb. 4 near 15th and Lincoln, and it was caught on camera. Monica Hernandez, 43, died as a result of injuries suffered in the crash. Her son, 13, was hurt. They were coming back from church at around 11 a.m. when it happened. According to a criminal complaint, a Toyota Corolla was found at the scene with severe damage to the front end. Aid was being rendered to Hernandez. At the hospital, it was determined she had suffered broken femurs and "avulsions" in both legs, along with internal bleeding. She died during surgery, and an autopsy revealed the cause of death as multiple blunt force injuries secondary to a motor vehicle collision. According to Milwaukee police and security cameras, the pick-up had been driven at freeway speeds in a 30 mph zone, when the driver lost control. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Anti telemarketers program Dear Webby, I enjoy your newsletter practically every day.

Thanks to Eric for this thoughtprovoking story: I was having lunch at PJ's with one of my favourite clients last week and the conversation turned to the government's recent round of tax cuts. "I'm opposed to those tax cuts," the retired college instructor declared, "because they benefit the rich. The rich get much more money back than ordinary taxpayers like you and I and that's not fair." "But the rich pay more in the first place," I argued, "so it stands to reason that they'd get more money back." I could tell that my friend was unimpressed by this meager argument. Even college instructors are a prisoner of the socialist myth that the "rich" somehow get a free ride in Canada. Nothing could be further from the truth. Let's put tax cuts in terms everyone can understand. Suppose that everyday 10 men go to PJ's for dinner. The bill for all ten comes to $100. If it was paid the way we pay our taxes, the first four men would pay nothing; the fifth would pay $1; the sixth would pay $3; the seventh $7; the eighth $12; the ninth $18. The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59. The 10 men ate dinner in the restaurant every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement until the owner threw them a curve. "Since you are all such good customers," he said, I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily meal by $20. Now dinner for the table only costs $80." The first four are unaffected. They still eat for free. Can you figure out how to divvy up the $20 savings among the remaining six so that everyone gets his fair share? The men realize that $20 divided by 6 is $3.33, but if they subtract that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would end up being paid to eat their meal. The restaurant owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the same percentage he had put in, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay. And so the fifth man paid nothing, the sixth pitched in $2, the seventh paid $5, the eighth paid $9, the ninth paid $12, leaving the tenth man with a bill of $52 instead of $59. Outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings. "I only got a dollar out the $20," declared the sixth man pointing to the tenth, "and he got $7!" "Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth man. I only saved a dollar, too. It's unfair that he got seven times more than me! "That's true," shouted the seventh man. "Why should he get $7 back when I got only $2? The wealthy get all the breaks." "Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison. "We didn't get anything at all. The system exploits the poor." The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up. The next night he didn't show up for dinner, so the nine sat down and ate without him. When it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They were $52 short! ++++++++++++++++++++++++ And that, boys and girls and college instructors, is how Canada's tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up at the table anymore. There are lots of good restaurants in Switzerland and the Caribbean and in Asia. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Heavy Lifting When you are lifting something heavy, bend your knees, not your waist.

Now, at long last, he had collected sufficient courage to ask her the most momentous of all questions: "There are quite a lot of advantages to being a bachelor," he began, "but there comes a time when one longs for the companionship of another being--a being who will regard one as perfect, as an idol, whom one can treat as one's absolute own, who will be kind and faithful when times are hard, who will share one's joys and sorrows." To his delight he saw a sympathetic gleam in her eyes. Then she nodded in agreement. Finally, she responded, "I think its a great idea! Yes, I can help you choose which puppy to buy!"

Cindy tried to sell her old car. She was having a lot of problems selling it, because the car had 250,000 miles on it. One day, she told her problem to Paul her good friend. Paul told her, "There is a possibility to make the car easier to sell, but it's not legal." "That doesn't matter," replied Cindy, "if I only can sell the car." "Okay," said Paul. "Here is the address of a friend of mine. He owns a car repair shop. Tell him I sent you and he will turn the counter in your car back to 50,000 miles. Then it should not be a problem to sell your car anymore." The following weekend, Cindy made the trip to the mechanic. About one month after that, Paul asked Cindy, "Did you sell your car?" "No," replied Cindy, "why should I? It only has 50,000 miles on it." ___________________________________________________

Germaine Moore turned himself into police on Tuesday (6 February) and is being held at Elmore County Jail where he has been charged with multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct. The 44-year-old was also charged with sexually assaulting four girls all under the age of 13 from 2011 and 2017, in Alabama and Detroit. According to a release from Central Alabama CrimeStoppers Moore surrendered at about 2.30am after warrants were issued. Moore is believed to have been recorded in a disgusting video that had been shared around the world, which was believed to show a young girl performing a sex act. CrimeStoppers released a warning to the public last week about the video of sexual abuse involving a young child circulating on social media. It was reported by the Associated Press (AP) that the victim has been located and is safe while Moore's wife had been detained and was not cooperating. "Due to a video being shared at an alarming rate, CrimeStoppers reached out to our Law Enforcement Partners and asked was there anything that the media could do to stop the spread of the video," Executive Director Tony Garrett said according to the Montgomery Advertiser. Garrett said the video may have been shared by some people who may have hoped to identify the abuser, but authorities have reminded people that sharing the video is a felony. Moore has been charged with the sexual assault of a child, distribution of a video depicting the assault and first-degree criminal sexual conduct. In addition Moore also faces 11 felony charges in Detroit, where prosecutors allege that he sexually assaulted three girls from 2011 to 2017. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Merri Lynn Re: telemarketers messages Dear Webby, Hi Friend Webby, I think you may have given some info on this subject before but "good gravy" I did not write it down at the time. How do I stop these telemarketers from leaving messages on my phone? I have to listen to the whole message before I can erase it- this is really starting to annoy me-any help would be greatly appreciated-you are like a ray of sunshine in my humdrum day. And not all days are that way-and then you are still a warm fuzzy. TOO MUch Gush?? Have a day of love and laughs, thanks always, Merri Lynn Dear Merri Lynn I think word has gotten around amongst telemarketers that I have Winfax and know how to use it. They have not left messages or sent faxes for at least 10 years, even though I have long since forgotten how to use Winfax. I used to have a letter that told them in extremely undiplomatic language what I thought of their dumb idea of leaving a message on my answering machine, complete with some not so nice illustrations to amplify my points. It was a real "Thunder from the pulpit" sermon, amounting to exactly 33 pages. Then I set Winfax to send it to them every night, and of course set to keep trying until completed. If they had voice/fax combos, they were greeted with 30 feet of used fax paper. If they didn't, Winfax kept calling them and greeting them with a cheerfully howling fax raspberry, until they changed their number. You can even set Winfax as a "Fax on demand" station, and automatically fax a long help file to them if they let the phone ring 4 times. Just warn your friends to never be so rude as to let it ring 4 times, or else ... Nowadays the answering machine is set to tell them to send me an email, and does not record any message. Most telemarketers are not web literate, and the few that are, are taken care of by MailWasher. Don't get mad, Merri Lynn, get even ! Have FUN! DearWebby

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Martin for this picture and story: I thought each of you could use a little comic relief today. Here's the story. A city councilman, Mark Easton, lives in this neighborhood. He had a beautiful view of the east mountains, until a new neighbor purchased the lot below his house and built. Apparently, the new home was 18 inches higher than the ordinances would allow, so Mark Easton, mad about his lost view, went to the city to make sure they enforced the lower roof line ordinance. Mark and his new neighbor had some great arguments about this as you can imagine - not great feelings. The new neighbor had to drop the roof line - no doubt at great expense. Recently, Mark Easton called the city and informed them that his new neighbor had installed some vents on the side of his home. Mark didn't like the look of these vents and asked the city to investigate. When they went to Mark's home to see the vent view, this is what they found... _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Donald Towns, 41, Lake City, Floriduh Lake City bank robber gave drivers license to manager According to the Lake City Police Department, a man made a series of mistakes while robbing a Columbia County bank on Monday.

An Irishman walks into a bar and asks for two beers. He then pulls a small green-skinned man out of his pocket and puts him on the counter. As he's drinking one drink and the green man is drinking the other, an Englishman down the bar who has had a few too many drinks says, "Hey Paddy!, what's that little green thing you've got down there?" The little green man runs down the bar and gives the Englishman a raspberry, "SPLBLBLBLT!," right in the face and then runs back to the Irishman. The Englishman mops himself off and says to the Irishman, "Hey Paddy!, what is that thing, anyway?" The Irishman replies, "Have some respect. He's a leprechaun." "A leprechaun!" says the Englishman laughing, "Boy, I never knew leprechauns were so ugly!" The leprechaun runs down the bar and gives the Englishman a raspberry again- SPLBLBLBLBT! This time the Englishman is really mad! "Tell that leprechaun that if he does that again I'll cut his pecker off!" he shouts. "You can't do that" says the Irishman. "Leprechauns don't have peckers." "How do they pee, then?" asks the Englishman. "They don't," says the Irishman.

After a round of golf, 4 elderly ladies sat around the club house chatting. Seeing the ladies, the Pro approached them and asked: "How did your game go?" The first said she had a good round...making the comment that she actually had 25 riders. The Pro was a bit perplexed not knowing what a "Rider" was. The second lady then quickly chimed in and said that she had a very good round as well with 16 riders. The third lady then said that her round was average and that she only had 10 riders. The fourth lady admitted that she played the worst round of the day and that she only had 2 riders all day long. The Pro was completely confused not knowing what the term "rider" meant. But, because he didn't want to look dumb, he made a quick polite remark, wished the ladies well and then left. He then approached the bartender and asked "Hey, can you tell me what these ladies are talking about when they refer to "riders"?" The bar tender simply smiled and said: "A 'rider' is when you have hit a shot long enough to take a ride on a golf cart." ___________________________________________________

But the public defender liked her thoughtfulness, and tried to convince her that she was appropriate to serve on the jury. "Madam," he explained, "This is not a murder trial! It's a simple civil lawsuit. A wife is bringing this case against her husband because he gambled away the $12,000 he had promised to use to remodel the kitchen for her birthday." "Well, okay," agreed Mrs. Hunter, "I'll serve. I guess I could be wrong about capital punishment after all!" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Lynn for this report: Some archaeologists were exploring when they came upon a cave. Written across the wall of the cave were the following symbols, in this order of appearance: A woman, a donkey, a shovel, a fish, and a Star of David. They decided that this was a unique find and the writings were at least three thousand years old. They chopped out the piece of stone and had it brought to the museum where archaeologists from all over the world came to study the ancient symbols. They held a huge meeting after months of conferences to discuss the meaning of the markings. The president of the society stood up and pointed at the first drawing and said: "This looks like a woman. We can judge that this race was family oriented and held women in high esteem. You can also tell they were intelligent, as the next symbol resembles donkey, so, they were smart enough to have animals help them till the soil. The next drawing looks like a shovel of some sort, which means they even had tools to help them. Even further proof of their high intelligence is the fish which means that if a famine had hit the earth, whereby the food didn't grow, they would take to the sea for food. The last symbol appears to be the Star of David which means they were evidently Hebrews." The audience applauded enthusiastically. Suddenly a little old woman stood up in the back of the room and said, "Idiots! Hebrew is read from right to left.

Abbey Taylor was arrested on Friday and bonded out on Saturday. She faces charges of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and resisting arrest. Taylor said, as a certified nursing assistant, she used to help the elderly people living at The Terrace of Jacksonville eat, bathe and get around. Taylor said she got into an argument with the nursing home administrator on Friday when she showed up to get copies of her old pay stubs. “I did not hit her with my vehicle. I think she’s making that up,” said Taylor. The administrator at The Terrace of Jacksonville told police she rolled up onto the hood of the car Taylor was driving. Taylor told Action News Jax the crack in her windshield is from her former boss punching the glass. “She didn’t flip over, or fall back or any of that,” Taylor said. An employee told Action News Jax the administrator has a fractured ankle that will need surgery. Taylor’s arrest report said surveillance video showed she hit the 53- year-old woman with her car and then drove past the woman a second time while she was on the ground. “In my heart, I did not hit her with my car,” Taylor said. “I want to see the surveillance cameras myself.” Leadership at The Terrace of Jacksonville would not release the surveillance video to Action News Jax. Taylor also denied resisting arrest, saying she just wanted to make sure her sister could watch her two kids while she was in jail. “All I was doing was asking them, could I please get my children straight and can I go and get some shoes? Because I didn’t even have any shoes on my feet. I just had socks. ‘Oh no, you can’t go back in the house.’ And that’s where it was from there,” said Taylor. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re:Spybot Advanced Mode Dear Webby, Thanks so much for the fun letter.

He was told there was one in the trunk of his (our son's) car. When my husband went to get the tool he realized it was his own tools & confronted our son about it, telling him he knew it was his tool as he had engraved his initials on it ( which he did to all his tools). Our son then said, "Dad, you loaned it to me but never came & got it back". Oh well, that's a kid for you. My qustion is in regard to the pc tip for Carol.

From Linda My dad, an auto mechanic, received a repair order that read: "Check for clunking sound when going around corners." Taking the car out for a test drive, he made a right turn, and a moment later he heard a clunk. He then made a left turn and again heard a clunk. Back at the shop, he opened the car's trunk, and soon discovered the problem.

If you store it in a damp basement, you could discover moldy and warped furniture when you go to retrieve it. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com Put some plywood or chip board under it, so that it does not sit or a bare and maybe uneven floor. Cover the furniture with a piece of plywood, NOT a tarp or plastic! You have to keep the sun off it, but allow ventilation. Have FUN!

A man was arrested after he punched his armless and legless girlfriend and took her to Vero Beach Walmart so she could report it to a shopper, the Miami Herald originally reported. The Miami Herald said Patrick Moan, who is reported as being 6 foot 9 inches tall, punched his girlfriend in the right ear Sunday. Later that afternoon, Moan took his girlfriend to the Walmart, hoping his girlfriend would tell someone that he hit her. The Herald reported Moan told a shopper himself that he did it and hoped the person would "call the cops so he could go to jail." The Miami Herald attributed the Indian River County Sheriff's Office who said Moan was tired of taking care of her and pushing her around in her wheelchair. He also said that if he punched her and confessed to it, he would no longer have to take care of her, the Miami Herald attributed to the arrest report. The chickenshit could have kicked a police car and get arrested. He did not have to hit a handicapped woman, or he could have simply brought her to a women`s shelter. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Carol D Re: Kodak EasyShare Dear Webby, I just installed an updated version of Kodak EasyShare.

Bill watched through the window as his young daughter played in the first snow of the season and made a snowman with a little friend. Entertained by the sight, he went closer and heard the little boy say: "I got an idea. To finish it off, I'll go to the kitchen and find a carrot." And his daughter replied, "Make it two. The second can be his nose."

An atheist complained to a friend, "Christians have their special holidays, such as Christmas and Easter; and Jews celebrate their holidays, such as Passover and Yom Kippur; Muslims have their holidays. EVERY religion has its holidays. But we atheists," he said, "have no recognized national holidays. It's an unfair discrimination."

As soon as he starts to draw a crowd, the zoo keeper grabs him and drags him into his office. The zoo keeper explains to the mime that the zoo's most popular attraction, a gorilla, died suddenly and the keeper fears that attendance at the zoo will fall off. He offers the mime a job to dress up as the gorilla until they can get another one. The mime accepts. So the next morning before the crowd arrives the mime puts on the gorilla suit and enters the cage. He discovers that it's a great job. He can sleep all he wants, play and make fun of people and he draws larger crowds than he ever did as a mime on the street. However, eventually the crowd tires of him and he tires of just swinging on auto tires. He notices that the people are paying more attention to the lion in the next cage. Not wanting to lose the attention of his audience, he climbs to the top of his cage, crawls across a partition, and dangles from the top of the lion's cage. Of course, this makes the lion furious, but the crowd loves it. At the end of the day the zoo keeper comes and gives the mime a raise for being such a good attraction. Well, this goes on for some time, the mime keeps taunting the lion, the crowd grows larger, and his salary keeps going up. Then one day when he is dangling over the top of the lion's cage, he slips and falls. The mime is terrified. The lion raises himself up and prepares to pounce. The mime is so scared that he begins to run around the cage with the lion in hot pursuit. Finally, the mime starts screaming and yelling, "Help! Help me!" The lion is quick and pounces. The mime soon finds himself flat on his back looking up at the angry lion. The lion growls, "Shut up, you idiot or we'll both lose our jobs!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Toucan _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Sheila for this story from Down-Under: All I wanted to do was advertise my lawnmower for sale. You'd think that would be quite straightforward. But noooooo, not with The Australian. "Can I take your ad?" the cheerful typist answered when I called the hotline. "Ah, yes, I want to sell my lawnmower," I said. "In the Wanted to Sell section? Certainly, sir. What do you want to say?" she said. fingers obviously ready at her keyboard. "Um, what about "Lawnmower for sale, and then my phone number?" I said. I sensed her apprehension and I heard no typing. "Too much information?" I asked. "No, er, sir...actually, you need probably a few more details to attract prospective buyers," she said. "Concentrate on some of the selling points" "Like what?" I asked. "Well, sir, perhaps you could say what kind of a lawnmower it is." "It's an orange one, or at least it was when I bought it nine years ago. You can still see some bits of orange though between the caked-up dry grass." "No, I'm not sure the color, or even the color it used to be, is all that relevant," she said. "How about telling me what make of lawnmower it is?" "I dunno," I said. "There use to be a model number on the side. I know they don't make them anymore. It's probably still there under all the dried crud, but I can't see it." "Um, let's see," she said. "Maybe you can tell me if it is a two-stroke or a four-stroke engine. Prospective buyers probably would want to know that. "It's neither," I said. "It used to be electric." "Used to be? How do you mean sir?" she asked. "I think the engine is shot," I said. "All it does now is go rrrrrrrrrr and blows one of the house fuses." "Oh, that doesn't sound very good," she said. "I know," I said. "I took it to the repair shop, and they said it would cost just as much to fix it as to buy a new one. Thast's why I want to sell it." "I see," she said. "Perhaps a handyman will buy it and do it up more cheaply than the repair shop can." "Yeah, that`s what I reckoned," I said. "I just hope they can fix the wheels too though." "The wheels?" the typist said. "What's wrong with the wheels?" "Nothing," I said. "They're nearly as good as the day I bought the lawnmower. Good tires and they go round and round and round, no worries." "But you said you hoped the buyer could fix them?" she said. "Yeah well, they keep falling off, that's all," I said. "They're good wheels though. If someone fixed them on really tight, they go round and round and round, no worries. Unless of course, the engine is burnt out. The the wheels just seem to sit there doing bugger-all as the lawnmower goes rrrrrrrrr and blows a house fuse. That's not the end of the world though, unless you don't happen to twig what's happening and great-uncle Isaac, whose head you are cryogenically storing in the freezer, begins to thaw out. Could be worse though. The lawnmower engine could suddenly start, unexpectedly, roar into life and you could accidentally run over the power cord and electrocute yourself and short the power circuit at the same time. Then your wife would really have some mess to clean up." "I see," said the typist. "And....er....how much do you want to ask for it?" "As much as I can get, or the nearest offer," I said. How much will this ad cost me? I better factor that in." "Ten dollars a line," she said. "So, what do you reckon I should say in the ad?" I asked, hoping to get some expert advice. "Oh dear, let's see," she said. She coughed. It sounded a bit like a surpressed laughter. "How about just... "Lawnmower for sale" and your phone number?" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Paul Douglas Anderson, 40, Spanish Fork, Utah Utah career criminal arrested after he assaulted cop A Spanish Fork man was arrested after police say he attacked a police officer, prompting a brief lockdown of nearby businesses and an elementary school while other officers searched for him Friday afternoon. Springville police said Paul Douglas Anderson, 40, was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, theft, burglary and failing to stop at an officer's command. He was booked into Utah County Jail. Meanwhile, the officer was being treated for an orbital eye socket fracture and facial lacerations at a hospital Friday evening. The incident began when an officer responded to a report of a man acting suspiciously near 700 S. Main St. shortly before 2 p.m., according to Springville Police Chief Scott Finlayson in a statement. The officer spotted the man, identified as Anderson, in a Tabitha's Way Local Food Pantry donation box with his feet dangling out. When the officer approached Anderson, the man got out of the donation box and put his hands in his pockets, Finlayson said. When the officer told him to get his hands out of pockets, he refused to comply before attacking the officer, punching him in the face "repeatedly," according to Finlayson. As Anderson was attacking the officer, a good Samaritan driving by stopped and intervened by pulling out a gun and ordering Anderson to stop, Finlayson said. Anderson then fled on foot. Anderson was taken into custody about 30 minutes later after officers set up a perimeter in the area. Finlayson said a witness saw the man hiding under a flatbed trailer across the street where the attack occurred. He was taken into custody without further incident. Court records show Anderson has a lengthy criminal history in the state of Utah. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sandra Re: BreastCancer Site Dear Webby, Please send to someone.

A talking chicken!" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by David Hamson, 39, Salt Lake City, Utah Bank robber forgot his keys, then the stolen money bag ripped Things didn't go exactly as planned for an alleged bank robber in Taylorsville Thursday. Just before 5:30 p.m., a man entered America First Credit Union, 2715 W. 5400 South, claimed to have a gun and demanded money from two tellers, said Unified Police Lt. Brian Lohrke. After the man received an undisclosed amount of cash in a bag, he ran out to his car, which was stolen. But when he got there, he realized he had left the keys on the counter inside the bank, Lohrke said. The man then attempted to run off, but his money bag snagged on something and ripped. Money then started flying out of his bag, Lohrke said. Witnesses saw the man running and directed police officers to where he was last spotted. Police arrested David Hamson, 39, a short time later in a neighborhood just west of the bank. Lohrke said a "good portion" of the money was recovered, but investigators believe some of the money went down a storm drain. Hamson was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of aggravated robbery. He is also "a known suspect in bank robberies which have occurred in West Valley City and Salt Lake City," according to a jail report, and has several outstanding warrants. Hamson has an extensive criminal background, according to court and jail documents. "David fled from South Salt Lake Police Department on (Wednesday). David caused a traffic accident while fleeing and was not taken into custody," the report states. He was also booked into jail on Jan. 3 for investigation of having a stolen vehicle, drug distribution, drug possession and theft. In that incident, Hamson was spotted in a stolen vehicle in the parking lot of Wal-Mart, 5469 S. Redwood Road, with a meth pipe and stolen checks taken from another stolen vehicle, according to a jail report. He was charged in 3rd District Court with three felonies for that case on Jan. 9 and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Hamson's extensive criminal history includes multiple cases of theft, robbery, assault and drug-related crimes, according to court records. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Malcolm Re: Too much spam Dear Webby, I can't keep up with my work because of all the spam I get.

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 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

"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.

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. ___________________________________________________

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?

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.

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.
