The Book of Political Life 

Today's reading is from the Book of Political Life,
Chapter 1, verses 1-15:
1. In the beginning was the Plan.
2. And then came the Assumptions.
3. And the Assumptions were without form.
4. And the Plan was without Substance.
5. And darkness was upon the face of the Voters.
6. And the Voters spoke among themselves saying, "It is a crock of shit and it stinks."
7. And the Voters went unto their Members of Parliament and said, "It is a crock of dung and we cannot live with the smell."
8. And the Members of Parliament went unto their Party saying, "It is a container of organic waste, and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it."
9. And the Party went unto the Cabinet Ministers, saying, "It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength."
10. And the Cabinet Ministers spoke among themselves, saying to one another, "It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong."
11. And the Cabinet Ministers went to the Deputy Prime Minister, saying unto him, "It promotes growth, and it is very powerful."
12. And the Deputy Prime Minister went to the Prime Minister, saying unto him, "It has very powerful effects."
13. And the Prime Minister looked upon the Plan and saw that it was good.
14. And the Plan became Policy.
15. And that is how crap happens.

Good Morning,  !
Today is Monday, April 30

My daffodils are holding out until warmer May weather.
I expected them to bloom weeks ago, but no luck yet.
On the other hand, the dandylions are holding back too and 
the lawns are just starting to get a greenish hue of brown.
Yeah, I know, in Alabama they have already sold and shipped
the first harvest of hay. Somebody here was joking that 
Gullible Warming happens only in states, where people 
believe in it. 

Well, I believe I still have a couple of weeks to get my 
lawnmower cleaned up and tuned up.

Have FUN!

A group of friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day. That night, one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point buck. "Where's Henry?"

For months he had been her devoted admirer. 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!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Davis Williams, 54, currently in OKMULGEE COUNTY, Oklahoma Meth lab explodes in man's pants A portable meth lab exploded in a Mounds man's pants early Friday morning as he struggled with an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says meth was leaking down Davis Williams' leg as he tried to run away from a trooper just after midnight. The trooper had stopped an SUV for speeding on 221st Street South in Okmulgee County. After giving the driver a ticket, the trooper began to question the passenger, Davis Williams, about a chemical smell. The OHP says Williams, 54, then took off running, but the trooper caught him and a struggle ensued. "After a brief struggle it was determined there was an active meth lab in his pants that burst during the struggle and got all over his body," said OHP trooper Shiloh Hall. Medical personnel checked out Williams and the road was closed so emergency crews could clean up the scene. Williams was booked into the Okmulgee County jail on a complaint of manufacture of a controlled and dangerous substance. The driver of the SUV was not arrested. The OHP says the driver was taking Williams to his semi at the time of the incident.

Although this married couple enjoyed their new fishing boat together, it was the husband who was behind the wheel operating the boat. He was concerned about what might happen in an emergency. So one day out on the lake he said to his wife, "Please take the wheel, dear. Pretend that I am having a heart attack. You must get the boat safely to shore and dock it." So she drove the boat to shore. Later that evening, the wife walked into the living room where her husband was watching television. She sat down next to him, switched the TV channel, and said to him, "Please go into the kitchen, dear. Pretend I'm having a heart attack and set the table, cook dinner and wash the dishes."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Nail Brushes for Cleaning Small Spaces I rarely use a nail brush to clean under my nails, as I use the end of a nail file. So I have a small collection of nail brushes I've saved from gift sets (frugal people save anything they think they will eventually find a use for). I keep a couple of them by the sink in the laundry room and have found they are great for scrubbing small spaces - a little larger than an old toothbrush and smaller than a traditional scrub brush. They have come in handy time and time again. By Marie from West Dundee, IL Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.

Looks like Russa does not want NATO to repeat their general
weapons testing exercise as in Libya, where they killed almost 
three times as many civilians as Quadafi had. So they parked 
their newest ships in front of Syria, with an alert looking 
sailor ready to hold off NATO.



NATO forces are circling the Russian ships with small yachts
loaded with shivering bikini models and a lot of  very modern
cameras and surveillance gear.

Quite likely the Russians are also showing off their new
ships and probably hope to sell a bunch of them.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Aldwin Caceres, 18, in Tampa, Florida Jailed After Head-Butting Mother, Burning Down Her House Over Cell Phone Tampa, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Aldwin Caceres, an 18-year-old bonehead with a blonde afro was jailed Sunday after he allegedly head-butted his mother, then burned her house down during an argument over a cell phone. According to police, the 275 pound Caceres became angry Saturday night while arguing with his mother over a cell phone. In retaliation, Caceres allegedly grabbed his mother by the wrists, pushed her onto a bed and then head-butted her twice on the forehead. Caceres then reportedly doused two couches and his mother's bed with gasoline before setting them ablaze. The fire was started shortly after midnight and completely destroyed the home. Caceres was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail and charged with first-degree arson and domestic battery.

Where they cancel out the salt sticks because there is no vibrations and at other places it just gets vibrated away.

Dear Betty
On small orders Canada Post just lets them slip through, 
on large ones you pay the 5% GST, as if you had bought
the toner downtown. Duty is the same as GST.

In Socialist provinces you may have to pay additional 
provincial sales tax, but you are used to that anyway.
Here in Alberta, where there is no provincial extortion,
it's just the 5% GST/Duty, and if that is below a secret
threshold, the Post Office won't bother figuring it out and
let it slide through free.

Two toners for my DELL 13020c slide through free. On
Monday I expect a shipment of three toners, that I ordered
on Thursday, and I have a hunch, they will slide through for
free too.

So I get 10% off for EarthWeek with the EARTH2012
coupon, free shipping donated by Atlantic Inkjet
and no GST, thanks to my good friends at the Post Office.

That is why I have bought ink and toner from Atlantic Inkjet 
for over a dozen years.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Stacey Ann Ortiz, 34, Port St. Lucie, Florida Jailed After Attacking Boyfriend Because He Refused To Have Sex With Her right now Stacey Ann Ortiz, a 34-year-old Port St. Lucie resident was jailed after she attacked her boyfriend because he refused to have sex with her. According to Port St. Lucie County Police, Ortiz and her boyfriend were drinking at a friend's house when they decided to call it a night and head home. When Ortiz hinted that she was in the mood for a a little something-something, her boyfriend rejected the idea and stated that would rather relax and watch television instead. That's when Ortiz launched a physical attack on her boyfriend. Investigators say the boyfriend attempted to run away, but Ortiz chased him down the street while he was wearing only underwear and a cel phone. The victim was able to call 911. When officers arrived, they noted that the boyfriend had several minor abrasions, including a cut on his forehead and scratches on his chest. Ortiz reportedly told investigators that she and her boyfriend's argument was only verbal at first, but claimed that he head-butted her, which turned it into a physical fight. She admitted to using a metal mop handle to break the windshield of the victim's truck, and to chasing him down the street because she was angry. Ortiz was booked into the St. Lucie County Jail and charged with domestic battery. She was released on her own recognizances, and is due to appear in court on May 8th.
Tech Support Pits: From: Elaine Re: Copy files from a certain date Dear Webby, you mentioned copying files from a set date on. How do you do that in Windows 7? Elaine Dear Elaine Open the File Explorer, browse to the directory, where those files are, and click on DATE on top, to sort them by date. Doing that in XP is pretty well instant, but in W7, if there are a lot of files in there, will take some time. If it is for example a folder with all the embedded and attached pictures, go clean out the coffee machine and the counter, while Windows is doing that. When you come back, sometimes it has done it, other times you have to click on DATE again and go do more chores. Eventually, the files are sorted by date, and you can highlight the date range that you want and copy or move or delete them. If you are in a hurry, go up a level, so that you see the name of that folder, highlight it, SHIFT Rightclick to get the advanced menu, select OPEN DOS COMMAND PROMPT HERE. That gives you the scary black DOS screen and a prompt telling you what directory you are in. Type color 9e that gives you a dark blue screen with yellow text. Then type xcopy *.* x:\folder\subfolder /D:m-d-y The *.* means ALL files that qualify Instead of x:\folder\subfolder you put the destination, where you want the files copied to. /D:m-d-y is the date For files after April 10, 2010 you would use /D:04-10-2010 If you use just /D, with no specidic date, then the Xcopy command copies only those files, that are newer at the source than at the destination. You can probably imagine how that trick makes backing up really fast! It does not bother with the 3 Million files, that you already got on the back-up drive, and just copies the 7 new files. To see all the handy "Switches" for the Xcopy command, type xcopy /? yeah, WOW! We had that since the days of DOS-3, long before the first Windows, but most of us kept it a secret from the mousers. You can note the switches, that you want and write a bat that has them built in. You can write bats with any clean text editor, and save them into the c:\Windows directory. Here is one I wrote when you were still jailbait: xx.bat @echo off xcopy %1 %2 /D /E /C /H /R /K /Y /Z echo === copied %1 to %2 pause I'll explain what each line does: @echo off tells it to NOT echo each command onto the screen. You already know what it does, since you wrote it. xcopy %1 %2 takes source and destination from your command line input If you type xx c:\noise\wav\*.* f:\sounds\new\wav then the bat takes c:\noise\wav\*.* as %1 and f:\sounds\new\wav as %2. After that it applies the list of conditional switches /D /E /C /H /R /K /Y /Z Whatever source or destination you specify, the xx.bat will always use those conditional switches. Then it tells you, what it has done, and asks you to hit the ANY key, after you have seen that message. You can, of course, "hardwire" source and destination for frequent backups, for example xwav.bat (saved to the Windows folder) @echo off xcopy c:\noise\wav\*.* f:\sounds\new\wav /D /E /C /H /R /K /Y /Z echo === copied c:\noise\wav\*.* f:\sounds\new\wav pause After you have saved the xwav.bat, make a desktop shortcut to it. Whenever you click that, it will back up all your wavs and ask you to hit the ANY key, when it is done. By the way, if you don't like the yellow on blue screen, type color /? and get a list of the color names. Have FUN! DearWebby

While talking with my semi-deaf uncle one evening, I noticed that his "hearing aid" was actually an earphone from a transistor radio. The wire had been cut and was sticking into his shirt. "How does that help your hearing?" I asked. "Don't help my hearing none," he replied. "Makes people talk louder."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Envelopes From Magazines I have done this for years. Our library has magazines in their bookstore for a quarter each. After I read them, I make envelopes from the most colorful pages and tear out all the cologne ads (woman's magazines) that have the scent under the flap. When I am ready to mail a handmade card or letter I lift the tab on the scent and rub it on the inside of my magazine made envelope. Makes it a pleasant surprise for the recipient. There are several envelope templates for downloading on the web available for free. The larger the magazine pages, the more choices you have for your envelope size. I have also used maps and old sheet music. You will need to add a label for the address. I use my return address sticker to seal the envelope in the back. Food, art, garden, travel, and animal magazines have some great photos. Source: My idea as far as using the scents. Envelopes from magazines have been around for some time.

>From Phil: While riding the bus, my mother noticed a young man, who was holding onto the same pole, staring at her. Eventually, he said, "Excuse me. This is my stop." Since she wasn't blocking his way, she was confused. "Well," she said,"go ahead." "And this is my pole," he said. My mother was completely perplexed until the young man added, "I just bought it at the hardware store to hold up my shower curtain." And with that, he picked up his pole and carried it off the bus.

Two paramedics were dispatched to check on a 92-year-old man who had become disoriented. They decided to take him to the hospital for evaluation. En route, with siren going, they questioned the man to determine his level of awareness. Leaning close, one paramedic asked, "Sir, do you know what we're doing right now?" The old man slowly looked up at him, then gazed out the ambulance window. He slowly turned back to the paramedic and said, "Oh, I'd say about 50, maybe 55."

How to get the Command Line in Windows 7 Explorer?

Good Morning,  !

Today is Friday, April 27
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!



Yesterday I noticed water running down at the edge of the 
road on the North side, but no rain. So I checked on the 
West side. There water was spouting up in the middle of the 
road at a rate of about 40 Liters (10 US Gallons) a minute.

Water main break!
Just as I was looing for an after hours number for the town,
one of their guys showed up and marked with a spray can
where the road needed to be dug up.

Then another guy showed up and they started searching for
shut-off valves, while I frantically filled every pot with water.
I even walked over to Barb in the next block. She had borrowed 
my 5 gallon Chilie pot some time ago. I got back in time to 
fill that too, before they shut things off.

Then today a crew showed up with a big tracked hoe, and 
carved open a hole big enough for a small house. They cheerfully
smashed the old style sewer line, but were very gentle about
exposing the water main. 

Once the water main was exposed, it showed two holes the 
size of cookies about a hand's width apart. Apparently that
was a weak spot in the steel pipe, and somebody slamming 
a valve shut too quickly somewhere, blew out those weak
spots.

They put a wrap-around sleeve onto the main, replaced the 
smashed part of the sewer line with plastic, put the dirt back
into the hole and tamped it down. Three hours after that crew
had shown up, they drove away.
And I had water again!

A Cajun was stopped by a game warden in South Louisiana recently with two ice chests of fish, leaving a bayou well known for its fishing. The game warden asked the man, "Do you have a license to catch those fish?" "Naw, ma fren, I ain't got none of dem, no. Deez here are my pet fish." "Pet fish?" "Ya. Avery night I take deez here fish down to de bayou and let dem swim 'round for a while. Den I whistle and dey jump rat back inta dis here ice chest and I take dem home." "That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that!" The Cajun looked at the game warden for a moment and then said, "It's de truth ma' fren. I'll show you. It really works." "Okay, I've GOT to see this!" The Cajun poured the fish into the bayou and stood and waited. After several minutes, the game warden turned to him and said, "Well?" "Well, what?" said the Cajun. "When are you going to call them back?" "Call who back?" "The FISH!" "What fish?"

The computer swallowed grandma. Yes, honestly its true. She pressed 'control' and 'enter' And disappeared from view. It devoured her completely, The thought just makes me squirm. She must have caught a virus Or been eaten by a worm. I've searched through the recycle bin And files of every kind; I've even used the Internet, But nothing did I find. In desperation, I asked Jeeves My searches to refine. The reply from him was negative, Not a thing was found 'online'. So, if inside your 'Inbox,' My Grandma you should see, Please 'Copy', 'Scan' and 'Paste' her And send her back to me! If you print that with a fancy font on some art paper, maybe on top of a nice picture, I think it would make a great Mothers Day present fro grandma!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Yusra Farhan, 50, in Phoenix, AZ Iraqi Woman Arrested After Beating, Tying Her Daughter to Bed for Talking to Man An Iraqi woman living in Phoenix has been arrested after admitting to beating her daughter and shackling the 19-year-old to a bed as punishment for speaking with a man. After the mother admitted to the crime and explained the catalyst was her “Iraqi culture,“ all elements bear the markings of an ”honor beating.” Phoenix Police arrested 50-year-old Yusra Farhan Wednesday night at St. Joseph’s Hospital where her daughter was being treated for her injuries. The young woman told police her mother beat her with with a shoe before ultimately shackling her waist to a bed to prevent her from leaving the house. 550KFYI reports that the rope was secured by a padlock. Farhan told officers that in Iraqi culture, females are not allowed to have contact with males, thus a daughter is not permitted to have a boyfriend. Farhan resisted arrest and called out to other family members present to help her fight off police, according to court paperwork. Those family members also jumped into the fray and had to be restrained in the hospital’s emergency area, according to police. Farhan was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, unlawful imprisonment, and resisting arrest. The victim claims her father also struck her several times prior to enduring the assault by her mother. The battered woman reported that she was set free only to attend school the morning of the 8th. When the victim arrived at school, she disclosed the details of her assault and was transported to the hospital by the Phoenix Fire department. That barbarian bonehead, Yusra Farhan, needs to be deported back to Iraq!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Remove Condensation from Car Windows When your windshield steams up on you, a clean blackboard eraser kept in the glove compartment of your car or truck can be quite handy for wiping off the moisture. The eraser is less bulky than a cloth and doesn't shed lint on the glass. By duckie-do from Cortez, CO If you see a "Tunnel" sign, crank down the windows, turn the air onto the windows and grab your eraser. Quite often the sudden coolness of a tunnel will cause the windows to fog up, especially if you have a bunch of noisy kids in the vehicle. Tell them to close their mouths and cover them with their hands, or else the tunnel ghost will kill them. With tunnels, acidents due to kids fogging up the windows are a very close second to impaired driving, however, since tunnel accidents are usually fatal, it is sometimes impossible to tell whether an impared driver got spooked by the sudden fogging up of the windows, and would have been OK, if that had not happened. Prepare the kids before any vacation trip. Whenever you scream "TUNNEL", that means "Shut up and hold your yap, and grab the eraser or cloth, ready to clean the window." Being prepared for that sudden fogging up may save a whole bunch of lives! Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.

Two Irish mothers were talking about their sons. The first said, "My Patrick is such a saint. He works hard, doesn't smoke, and he hasn't so much as looked at a woman in over two years." The other woman said, "Well, my Francis is a saint himself. Not only hasn't he not looked at a woman in over three years, but he hasn't touched a drop of liquor in all that time." "My word," the first Irish mother said. "You must be so proud." "I am," the second mother replied. "And when he's paroled next month, I'm going to throw him one heck of a big party."

This preacher was looking for a good used lawn mower one day. He found one at a yard sale that Little Johnny happened to be manning. "This mower work, son?" the preacher asked. Little Johnny said, "Sure does -- just pull on the cord hard, though." The preacher took the mower home and when he got ready to mow he yanked and pulled and tugged on that cord. Nothing worked. It wouldn't start. Thinking he'd been swindled, he took the mower back to Little Johnny's house. "You said this would work if I pulled on the cord hard enough." "Well," Johnny said, "you need to cuss at it sometimes." The preacher was aghast. "I've not done that in years!" "Just keep yanking on that cord, Preacher. It'll come back to you."

Thank you Georgiana!!

When putting a fitted shet onto a bed, I have always admired,
and envied, how women look for a tiny mark, that is totally
invisible to men, shake the sheet and it is lined up, then 
they flop onto the bed, tuck down the corners and in 
seconds it is all done. 

I have to try the sixteen different ways and still suspect, that
the sheet is upside down.

Today I managed to get it right in only 15 tries!
As tight as a painter's canvas and all the seams underneath.
I considered that a good omen and went to get my big Mark-All.
Now each corner has a clearly legible mark on the downwards
portion: SE, SW, NE, NW.
So there!

A young couple were touring southern Florida and happened to stop at a rattlesnake farm they discovered along the road. After seeing the sights, they engaged in small talk with the man that handled the snakes. "Gosh!" exclaimed the young woman. "You certainly have a dangerous job. Don't you ever get bitten by the snakes?" "Yes, on rare occasions," answered the handler. "Well," she continued, "what do you do when you're bitten by a snake?" "I always carry a razor-sharp knife in my pocket, and as soon as I am bitten, I make cut across the fang entry and then suck the poison from the wound." "What, uh...what would happen if you were to accidentally sit on a rattler?" persisted the woman. "Ma'am," answered the snake handler, "that will be the day I learn who my real friends are."

The Little Red Hen [version 2012] 

"Who will help me plant my wheat?" asked the little red hen.

"Not I," said the cow.

"Not I," said the duck.

"Not I," said the pig.

"Not I," said the goose.

"Then I will do it by myself." She planted her crop and the wheat grew and ripened.

"Who will help me reap my wheat?" asked the little red hen.

"Not I," said the duck.

"Out of my classification," said the pig.

"I'd lose my seniority," said the cow.

"I'd lose my unemployment compensation," said the goose.

"Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen, and so she did.

"Who will help me bake the bread?" asked the little red hen.

"That would be overtime for me," said the cow.

"I'd lose my welfare benefits," said the duck.

"I'm a dropout and never learned how," said the pig.

"If I'm to be the only helper, that's discrimination," said the goose.

"Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen.

She baked five loaves and held them up for all of her neighbors to see.

They wanted some and, in fact, demanded a share but the little red hen said, "No, I shall eat all five loaves."

"Excess profits!" cried the cow. (Nancy Pelosi)

"Capitalist leech!" screamed the duck. (Barbara Boxer)

"I demand equal rights!" yelled the goose. (Jesse Jackson)

The pig just grunted in disdain. (Harry Reid)

And they all painted 'Unfair!' picket signs and marched around and around the little red hen, shouting obscenities.

Then the farmer (Obama) came He said to the little red hen, "You must not be so greedy."

"But I earned the bread," said the little red hen.

"Exactly," said Barack the farmer. "That is what makes our free enterprise system so wonderful. Anyone in the barnyard can earn as much as he wants. But under our modern government regulations, the productive workers must divide the fruits of their labor with those who are lazy and idle."

And they all lived happily ever after, including the little red hen, who smiled and clucked, "I am grateful, for now I truly understand."

But her neighbors became quite disappointed in her. She never again baked bread because she joined the 'party' and got her bread free. And all the Liberals smiled. 'Fairness' had been established.

Individual initiative had died but nobody noticed; perhaps no one cared so long as there was free bread that 'the rich' were paying for.

EPILOGUE

Bill Clinton is getting $12 million for his memoirs. Hillary got $8 million for hers.

That's $20 million for the memories from two people, who for eight years repeatedly testified, under oath, that they couldn't remember anything.

IS THIS A GREAT BARNYARD OR WHAT?

Working as a radiology technician in a hospital emergency room, I took X rays of a trauma patient. I brought the films to our radiologist, who studied the multiple fractures of both femurs and pelvis. "What happened to this patient?" he asked in astonishment. "He fell out of a tree," I reported. The radiologist wanted to know what the patient was doing up a tree. "I'm not sure, but his paperwork states he works for Acme Tree Experts." Looking again at the X rays, the radiologist said, "Cross out 'experts.'"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Renee Jackson, 35 in Fort Smith, Arkansas Silver Tonged Drunk Renee Jackson, a 35-year-old New Orleans man was jailed after he allegedly attempted to rob a convenience store with a pair of hot dog tongs. According to the Fort Smith Police Department, Jackson allegedly entered a local convenience store, grabbed a pair of silver tongs used for hot dogs, then demanded money from the clerk and customers. Witnesses say Jackson appeared to be extremely intoxicated, so no one took him seriously. The clerk called 911 and stated that he was attempting to stab people inside the store with the tongs. He ultimately pushed one of the customers, but no one was inured. Investigators say when officers arrived on the scene, Jackson was outside the building. Police stated that he had written a note to the store, apologizing for what he had done. Jackson told investigators that he became distraught after arguing with his wife and wanted to go to jail because his family didn't appreciate him. He was booked into jail and charged with two counts of attempted aggravated robbery.
Tech Support Pits: From: Earl Re: Toner for DELL printer Hi Webby, The newsletter is great and the Teck tips save a lot of time figuring out how to correct mistakes. My question is, do you get your toner for your 1350 laser printer from Atlanticinkjet, my 1250c takes the same toner and I can't find it on their web site. Thanks for any help you can give me on this subject. Thanks Earl Dear Earl We use DELL 1320c Color Laser, and yes, I get the toner from Atlantic Inkjet.com I have been getting the toner from Atlantic long before I got that printer many years ago. As a matter of fact, I will be ordering a couple of toner cartridges from Atlantic tomorrow. I like having full spares for every color sitting on the shelf, and their toner does not go bad. If you can't find the toner you need at Atlantic Inkjet.com, write to Dimnitris at dimitris@easygroup.us. Since DELL keeps adding new models and names almost daily, your model might not be listed. Dimitris will cross it over to whatever cartridge style it uses. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Elvira for this: I'd been working on my business degree for about a year when I finally got to take a popular finance course. I went to the bookstore to buy the text and was shocked to find out that it would cost me $96. I asked how much it was worth if I sold it back at the end of the semester. "You'll get $24," said the clerk. "This is insane," I protested as I wrote out the check. "I know," replied the clerk sympathetically. "I've always thought that a person who buys a book for $96 and then sells it back for $24 should fail that course."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Your Own Fabric Softener Squares Take a package of soft cloths (e.g., generic brand of J-Cloth) and cut them in half. Soak them in fabric softener, wring out well, and hang dry. When ready to put a load of clothes in the dryer, slip a dried softener sheet in. These can be used a few times over and then you can start the soaking process over again. The sheets last forever and you'll never need to buy fabric softener sheets again.

Finally I see well enough again to work.
Last night at 8 pm the shady back yard East of the house
still looked like fresh snow in bright sunlight. So I decided to
catch up on some of last year's missed sleep.

I wrote to Lewis at the Ezinefinder a few more times to

working again, for registered users anyway. Whether the
voting via confirmation request email also works, we will 
find out when I enter the numbers into the graph tomorrow 
night, actually Monday morning around 02:30 am, 
when they normally update and show the previous day's votes.

Saturday was a beautiful and warm and sunny day. First day 
of the year, where I could comfortably eay lunch out on the
deck. I sure enjoyed that!

Three rabbinical students were caught by the Rabbi gambling and drinking in the company of undesirable characters before the sun set on the evening of the Sabbath. The Rabbi called them into his study the next day. They all confessed to having given in to weakness, and admitted that they deserved punishment. The Rabbi thought for a moment, then went into his kitchen and brought back three bags of dried peas. "Put these in your shoes," he told them, "and walk on them for a week, to remind yourself how hard life can be when you turn away from your faith." A few days later the three students met. One was limping terribly, had dark circles under his eyes, and looked very tired. The others seemed much as he had been the week before. The first student said, "How is it that you are walking so freely? Didn't you do as the Rabbi told us and put the peas in your shoes?" "Of course I did," said the second. "How could I disobey the Rabbi? I just chose to wear a different pair of shoes." The third student interrupted, "The rabbi expressly stated that we were to WALK on the peas." The first student inquired how he could be walking so well if he was walking on the peas. The third student smiled and said, "I boiled them first."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Shriya Biman Patel, 25 in Austin, Texas Jailed After Setting Husband On Fire, Locking Him In Bathroom To Burn Shriya Biman Patel, a 25-year-old North Austin woman was jailed Thursday after she allegedly set her husband on fire and then locked him in the bathroom to burn. According to the Austin Police Department, officers were called to the couple's apartment around 9:15 p.m. after witnesses reported that a man was screaming for help from his balcony. One caller told police that the man was yelling things like "why would you burn me?" and "All I wanted to do is love you." When officers arrived on the scene, they found a badly burned man. He was naked and writhing on the floor, screaming in pain. When officers asked the man what happened, he stated that he was in the bathtub expecting to receive a massage from Patel when instead, she burst in and poured gasoline on him. Patel then lit him on fire with a candle and then locked the bathroom door, trapping the man inside. The man was able to kick down the door and escape, but not before sustaining severe burn injuries. Investigators say Patel had removed the smoke detectors from the apartment and disabled the sprinklers in preparation for the assault. They also found a Walmart receipt showing that she had purchased items used in the attack earlier that day. The victim was taken to the San Antonio Military Medical Center where he was treated for burns to 70% of his body. Although the couple has been married for about a year, Patel had just moved to the U.S. from India about a week prior. Patel was booked into jail and charged with arson and assault with a deadly weapon. She is currently being held in lieu of $1,000,000 bail.

An interoffice softball game was held every year between the marketing and support staff of one company. The support staff whipped the marketing department soundly. To show just "how" the marketing department earns their keep, they posted this memo on the bulletin board after the game: "The Marketing Department is pleased to announce that for the Softball Season, we came in second place, having lost but one game all year. The Support Department, however, had a rather dismal season, as they won only one game."

An old doctor and his nurse were on the train, going to a Medical Conference. Opposite them was a man furiously scratching his elbow.

A man went to his lawyer and told him, "My neighbor owes me $500 and he doesn't want to pay up. What should I do?" "Do you have any proof?" asked the lawyer. "Nope," replied the man. "Okay, then write him a letter asking him for the $1000 he owed you," said the lawyer. "But it's only $500," replied the man. "Precisely. That's what he will reply and we will have the proof we need to nail him."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Michael Baker, 20 in Jenkins, Kentucky Facebooked into jail APRIL 18--A Kentucky bonehead is facing a misdemeanor rap after he siphoned gasoline from a police car, a theft that came to the attention of cops after the perp posted a Facebook photo memorializing the crime. As seen in the above photo, as Michael Baker, 20, was swiping the gas last month from a Jenkins Police Department squad car, he made sure to flip the bird as his girlfriend snapped a picture. After obtaining a copy of the photo (which began circulating in Jenkins) police arrested Baker Monday evening for theft by unlawful taking, according to an arrest warrant, which alleges that he “stole gas from a Jenkins City Police Cruiser” and then “posted a picture of his theft on facebook.” Baker, pictured in the mug shot, is scheduled to be arraigned today in Letcher County District Court.
Tech Support Pits: From: Rheta Re: Pictures sawed off DearWebby: It's been a while. But I read all your tips, and advice. Think you for sharing. My question to day is. First I have a new laptop. With Windows 7 :( and none of my pictures fit my screen. I even tried to save this sweet little mouse you have. Rheta Dear Rheta I guess you found out the hard way why I have been bitching against sawed off monitors. If you still have a standard monitor, plug it into the socket on the back or side of the laptop. W7 will recognize it and allow you to configure it any way you want it. Set it to 1600 x 1200, if the video card in that laptop can handle that. Then you can see everything in standard 4;3 format and proper sharpness on the old monitor, and have the sawed off monitor on the side. Some people turn the laptop "on it's ear", sideways. They use a regular keyboard anyway so as not to wreck their wrists with the laptop keyboard. With the sawed off laptop screen turned sideways, so that it is a tall and slim portrait format, it becomes quite handy for long lists, spreadsheets to record links, and especially for writing. With today's preference for narrow columns, the tall portrait format is just perfect. And on the right you have the old monitor in standard 4:3 format and high resolution for graphics or anything that looks better in standard format. Almost all modern laptops can handle a standard monitor on the side, in addition to their sawed off screen. Have FUN! DearWebby

Father Norton woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just absolutely had to play golf. So... he told the Associate Pastor that he wasn't felling well and persuaded him to say Mass for him that day. As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away. This way he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish. Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church! At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, "You're not going to let him get away with this, are you?" The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not." Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole. It WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE! St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why would you let him do that?" The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to brag to?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keeping Trash Bags in Place When I buy trash bags that don't like to stay in place, I simply measure off a length of elastic, sew it together and fit it over the trash can. When the bag is put into the can we simply pull the elastic over the edges and this keeps it from moving. We never take the elastic off, (except to clean it) we simply push it down a little, lift out the bag, and replace it.

's colleague at a package-processing center was trapped in a small rest room by a faulty lock. When he was finally discovered, and another worker were able to open the door with some difficulty. The lock was still jammed, so they blocked the door open while a maintenance worker was called. A bit later, noticed the door was closed again. He jiggled the doorknob and an unfamiliar voice from inside called, "Get me outa here!" "Don't worry," replied, "Maintenance should be sending somebody shortly." "They did," said the voice.

I wrote to Lewis at the Ezinefinder. He rarely responds,
but usually just works on problems, when there are a certain
nuber of reports. That seems to be the norm with Mac 
server administrators. Lewis is no exception.

For some silly reason, Mac server administrators seem to 
view any problem report as an attack on their cult and take 
it very personal. Well, if you don't get confirmation requests
today either, let me know and I'll write to him again.

You CAN avoid the confirmation requests, if you register at 
the EzineFinder. When you do that, it plants a one month 
cookie in your browser. Don't worry, that cookie does not 
have your bra size or weight or age. It just has your "pass key"
to get through to voting without the need for a confirmation email.
And in a month, that cookie crumbles. So, use a simple user
name and password. You have to put it in every month.
Of course, if you have RoboForm, then it will remember the
user name and password for you.

If you have not got it yet, I highly recommend it! You can even
use RoboForm to sync your passwords between different computers,
for eample desktop at work and laptop at home. Quite civilized!

Doug went to the eye doctor for an examination because he was having trouble reading the newspaper. "Now that you're over 40," the doctor told him, "you've developed a condition called 'presbyopia,' in which the lens of your eye can no longer focus as well as it used to." Seeing his worried look, the doctor tried to be upbeat. "Con- gratulations!" he said. "You're now officially a presbyope!" Doug leaned over and asked seriously, "If that means I'm no longer a Roman Catholic, and I don't have to go to Confession any more?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Mallory Renee Mims, 22, Orond Beach, Florida Lo-Jack foiled insurance fraud LoJack busts man who reported car stolen HESPERIA, Calif. (UPI) -- A California man was arrested for insurance fraud when the security system in a vehicle he reported stolen led police to where he allegedly hid the car. Ricardo Felix, 31, is accused of concealing the vehicle behind a family member's home, and then reporting it stolen to Huntington police and his insurance company, the Daily Press of Victorville, Calif., reported Monday. Victor Valley police said Saturday they received a LoJack notification of the location of the vehicle and tracked it to the home in Hesperia. Authorities detained four people in the home and notified Felix about the discovery of the vehicle. Investigators later learned Felix allegedly conspired with the family members to hide the vehicle, not knowing it was equipped with the LoJack system, Hesperia police spokeswoman Sue Rose told the Daily Press. Felix was being held on $25,000 bail for alleged insurance fraud and grand theft auto. Prosecutors office were considering filing charges against the alleged conspirators, the newspaper said.
Tech Support Pits: From: Tina Re: Solar lights Dear Webby This is not about computers or the Internet, but sorta electrical. You must have seen those little solar garden lights. Would they work as night lights inside a house? Thanks Tina Dear Tina Most of them are not really intended for lighting in a specific direction, but to just look pretty in all directions. If you take the milky diffuser off them, and make a small parabolic mirror with aluminum foil, it can light a patch of floor or stairs jst barely enough. Since they are cheap, $1 - $2, you can use a bunch of them shining at critical spots like steps or stairs. They don't need to be outside in direct sunlight, but indoors should be in a reasonably well lit area. The main advantage of them is that they will work fine during power outages. The disadvantage is that the amount of light they produce, is very low. They are cheap enough, that you can easily experiment and see if they produce enough light for you. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Frank for this: No one is more cautious than a first-time parent. After our daughter was big enough to ride on the back of my bicycle, I bought a special carrier with a seat belt and got her a little helmet. The day of the first ride I put her in the seat, double- checked all the equipment, wheeled the bike to the end of the driveway, carefully looked both ways and, swinging my leg up over the back, kicked her right in the head, lost my balance, tipped over, with her ending up in the rose bush, and me in the algae slime covered lily pond. She didn't cry, but because of the hysterical screaming laughter from mom was quite confused about the whole thing, and it took her a few seconds before she cheered up and yelled: "Do it again, daddy!"

Five doctors went duck hunting one day. Included in the group were a general practice (GP) physician, a pediatrician, a psychiatrist, a surgeon and a pathologist. A bird came winging overhead. The first to react was the GP who raised his shotgun, but then hesitated. "I'm not quite sure it's a duck," he said, "I think that I will have to get a second opinion." And of course by that time, the bird was long gone. Another bird appeared in the sky thereafter. This time, the pediatrician drew a bead on it. He too, however, was unsure if it was really a duck in his sights and besides, it might have babies. "I'll have to do some more investigations," he muttered, as the creature made good its escape. Next to spy a bird flying was the sharp-eyed psychiatrist. Shotgun shouldered, he was more certain of his intended prey's identity. "Now, I know it's a duck, but does it know it's a duck?" The fortunate bird disappeared while the fellow wrestled with this dilemma. Finally, a fourth fowl sped past and this time the surgeon's weapon pointed skywards. BOOM!! The surgeon lowered his smoking gun and turned nonchalantly to the pathologist beside him. "Go see if that was a duck, will you?"

The CEO was scheduled to speak at an important convention, so he asked one of his employees to write him a punchy, 20-minute speech. When the CEO returned from the big event, he was furious. "What's the idea of writing me an hour-long speech?" he demanded to know. "Half the audience walked out before I finished." The employee was baffled. "I wrote you a 20-minute speech," he replied. "I also gave you the two extra copies you asked for."

A young boy of four was going into hospital to have his tonsils removed. He told his playmate I'll be gone for awhile I have to have surgery. On the day he was admitted his mother asked if the doctor would please circumcise the boy, since he's already going to be under anaesthesia. The boy woke up and was very sore "down there" there for several days. About a week later he got to see his playmate again. The playmate informed him that he, too, was also going to have to have his tonsils out. He asked the boy to tell him about the surgery. The little boy replied, "All I can tell you is your tonsils are not where you think they are."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Mallory Renee Mims, 22, Orond Beach, Florida Leaving Child Locked Inside Car While Applying And Drinking At Local Bar Mallory Renee Mims, a 22-year-old Ormond Beach woman was jailed Friday after she allegedly left her 5-year-old child unattended in a car for over an hour while she applied for a job at a bar, then stuck around to drink a few shots. According to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, Mims went to the Pirana Bar and Grill to fill out a job application. Investigators say Mims left her child in a locked car with the windows rolled up while she went inside. After applying for the job, she hung out at the bar for over an hour, consuming three shots of vodka. When a bar patron asked Mims about the child, Mims denied that the child was hers. When Mims tried to leave the bar, the bartender took away her keys. Police were called when Mims went behind the bar to retrieve her keys. When officers arrived on the scene, Mims smelled of alcohol and appeared to be intoxicated, according to the arrest affidavit. She was booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail and charged with child neglect and leaving a child unattended in a vehicle for more than 15 minutes, which is the limit in Florida. She was released after posting $1,500 bail. The child was placed in the care of a relative.

As I left the supermarket, I noticed two little kids, maybe six or seven years old, selling candy bars in front of the store to raise money for their school band. "I'll buy a chocolate bar on one condition," I said to one of the boys. "That you eat it for me." As I handed him back the candy bar, he shook his head. "I can't," he said. "Why not?" Looking me in the eye, he responded gravely, "Because I'm not supposed to take candy from strangers."

Bob was delighted with the way the painter had done all the work on his house. "You did a great job." he said and handed the man a check. "Also, in order to thank you, here's an extra $80 to take the missus out to dinner and a movie." Later that night, the doorbell rang and it was the painter. Thinking the man had forgotten something he asked, "What's the matter, did you forget something?" "Nope." replied the painter. "I'm just here to take your missus out to dinner and a movie like you asked."

Bob sets up his friend Mike to go on a blind date with his cousin. Mike is a little worried about going out with someone he's never seen before. "What do I do if she's ugly?" says Mike, "I'll be with her all night." "Don't worry," Bob says, "just go up to her door and meet her first. If you like what you see, then everything goes as planned. If you don't, just shout 'Aaaaaauuuggghhh!' and fake a heart attack." That night Mike knocks at the girl's door. When she comes out he is awe-struck at how hot and sexy she is. He's about to speak when the girl suddenly grabs for her chest and lets out a loud ... "Aaaaaauuuggghhh!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Lawrence Deptola, 49, of Cottage Place in Utica, NY Man attempted to rob three banks with a toilet plunger A Utica man faces felony charges. Police say he attempted to rob three different banks armed with a toilet plunger. Surveillance photos captured the suspect entering the Key Bank on Genesee Street Thursday afternoon. Around 1:30 Thursday afternoon, Utica Police responded to the Key Bank for a report of an attempted robbery. Officers also were contacted by two other banks that said the man had also entered there and demanded money. Bank employees say he came in started yelling obscenities, telling them to put money in a bag. Police say he threatened the tellers with the plunger. Officers in an unmarked car responded to the scene and saw the suspect walking away. When the suspect saw the officers, he ran. Police caught up with him and took him into custody. Lawrence Deptola, 49, of Cottage Place in Utica is charged with attempted robbery, a class "E" felony. The plunger was recovered inside Citizen's Bank.
Tech Support Pits: From: Robert Re: Laptop keyboard lettering Dear Webby The white lettering on my laptop keyboard is coming off. Is there a way to replace it???? Robert Dear Robert You can try Letraset and then seal it with a drop of marine spar varnish or clear nail polish. You can get letraset at art supply stores. They are getting away from clean industrial fonts and drifting to artsy-fartsy stuff, but one or tow of their fonts are usable. The alternative is to get a super-fine Nissen paint marker. They are actually made for industrial use in machine shops and welding shops for lay-out and identifying pieces, and the paint is extremely durable. You can order them online at Nissen Markers. Depending on the size you get, they are $4 - $6 each. Have FUN! DearWebby

A professor asked a student to remain for a few moments after class. Holding out the young man's assignment, the professor said, "Did you write this poem all by yourself?" The student said, "Every word of it." The professor said, "Well, then, I'm glad to meet you, Mr. Poe. However, all these books here say you are dead. Since I can not correct all the books about you, .... Which way would you like to die ?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Organizing Craft Patterns I love to sew, but one thing I don't like is trying to get the pattern pieces back into those little envelopes that have the pattern in it originally. I knew I had to do something. I went to an office supply store and bought some cheap file folders. I sew them along the sides then cut the pattern envelope to the size of the file folder and tape or glue it on the outside. It is so much easier to fold the pattern pieces to fit the file folder. I bought a file cabinet at an auction for $1.00 and I was set. No more frustration.

A man spent several hours enduring long lines, surly clerks, and insane regulations at the Department of Motor Vehicles. On his way home, he stopped to pick up a gift for his son. He selected a baseball bat. "Cash or charge," the clerk asked. "Cash!" the man snapped, then apologizing for his rudeness, he explained, "I've just spent the entire afternoon at the Motor Vehicle office." "I understand," the clerk replied, and then asked, "Shall I gift wrap the bat, or ... are you going back there?"

In a small town, farmers of the community had gotten together to discuss some important issues. About midway through the meeting, a wife of one of the farmers stood up and spoke her piece. One of the old farmers stood up and said, "What does she know about anything? I would like to ask her if she knows how many toes a pig has?" Quick as a flash, the woman replied, "Take off your boots, Bobo, and if you can count that high, count them yourself!"

The Enemy Times blares in their headlines:
"Suicide bombers and gunmen struck the Afghan capital and
three provinces in a clear attempt to erode confidence in
NATO and Afghan military gains."

I would say Bull Sheet!

They are not trying to send a message like that at all.
The Taliban would prefer it, if the NATO troops went elsewhere.
It's simply time for the traditional spring "offensive", 
that goes back to long before NATO arrived there.
Once upon a time, the CIA supplied them with ammo to shoot
at the Russians during the spring event, now it is the other way
around. 

Apparently it is very noisy there in spring.
NATO troops are sitting back and watching the festivities,
and hoping the Afghan Government will ask them to participate.
So far they haven't. 

Even though the Taliban and the Afghan forces and police are
using up ammo in record amounts, so far the spring offensive
has only caused 14 injuries amongst police and 11 amongst 
civilians. Keep in mind, Taliban are not uniformed. They count
as civilians, unless they are holding a gun.

With the amount of ammo being expended, and the skills of the
participants, or lack thereof, those injuries are quite likely 
not caused by enemies. That is to be expected during 
spring break events, ahem, the Spring Offensive!

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Teresa Agayo, 46, Costa Mesa, California Jailed After Beating Store Clerk Over Bottle Of Beer Teresa Aguayo, a 46-year-old Orange County woman was jailed Sunday after she attacked a store clerk because the store couldn't sell her an individual bottle of beer. Teresa Aguayo, 46, is being held on suspicion of attempted murder. Costa Mesa police say Aguayo attacked a clerk at the California Stop, 600 W. 19th Street in Costa Mesa, Sunday afternoon after she refused to sell the woman one bottle of beer. California Stop does not sell single beers, according to officials. Aguayo proceeded to hit the clerk on the head with the bottle and then tried to strangle her with a blanket, officials said. Police say Aguayo also rubbed acetone, bug spray and rubbing alcohol in the clerk’s face during the attack. The female clerk was taken to a local hospital for observation. Aguayo is being held on $500,000 bail at an Orange County jail.
Tech Support Pits: From: Ron Re: Euro symbol versus beat up "e" Dear Webby On items from Europe I see a symbol that looks like a slightly beat up "e", but the same size as a CAP letter. Is that a lazy form for the Euro symbol, or what is it? Ron Dear Ron Europeans tend to get snotty about you calling it an "e", as if you had called the Pi symbol "the little milking stool". The "beat up e" is the ESTIMATED symbol. The Estimated symbol indicates that at some time in history the contents should have weighed about what is indicated on the package. That is not to be construed, that it has actually been weighed, just that the package designer has ESTIMATED, that the contents should weigh about that much. It is often fairly close, but when they use the symbol, you can't sue them about small differences. It also comes into play with pasta. They use a certain number of, for example, Lasagna noodles. They are not going to file down a noodle, or add a splinter of one to make the weight closer to what the package says. With the symbol, it is close enough. Have FUN! DearWebby

A young customs official watched our entourage in disbelief, "Ma'am," he said, "do all these children and this luggage belong to you?" "Yes, sir," my mother said with a sigh. "They're all mine." The customs agent began his interrogation: "Ma'am, do you have any weapons, contraband or illegal drugs in your possession?" "Sir," she calmly answered, "if I'd had any of those things, I would have used them by now." The official allowed us to pass without opening a single suitcase.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Edith Shellow, 39 in Macon, Georgia Jailed After Stabbing Husband In Groin With Screwdriver, Beating Him With Wrench Macon, Ga. (The Weekly Vice) - Edith Shellow, a 39-year-old Georgia woman was jailed Sunday after she stabbed her husband in the genitals with a screwdriver, then beat him in the head with a big wrench. According to Macon Police, Shellow and her husband were involved in an argument Sunday when the dispute turned decidedly violent. Investigators say Edith Shellow charged towards her husband with a pair of scissors. Her husband reportedly grabbed the scissors and attempted to call 911. While the husband was dialing the phone, Shellow reportedly called for her daughter to help restrain her husband while striking him in the face and head with a big wrench. The husband was defending himself from the daughter, when Shellow grabbed a Phillips screwdriver and stabbed him in the groin. When the husband asked to be taken to a hospital, Edith Shellow grabbed a baseball bat and threatened to beat him with it if he attempted to leave the room. She eventually took him to a hospital at about 3 a.m. the next morning. Edith Shellow was arrested at her home later the same day. She was booked into the Bibb County Jail on a charge of aggravated assault/domestic violence. Her bond was set at $9,550. Shellow's daughter was also arrested, but was not charged with a crime. Ordering her to get involved in the violence would be considered "Mob Action" in some states, but not necessarily in Georgia.

Good Morning,  !
Today is Saturday, April 14

On my walk to the post office today it was nice and sunny,
with the sky in the West clear, but stormy clouds everywhere 
else. About half way there I noticed some rain drops!
It felt quite neat, feeling the warm sun on my face, and 
cool rain drops on top of my head.

The rain drops were sparse enough, so that they did not 
really wet the road or sidewalk. They showed briefly, but
evaporated in a few seconds. I quite enjoyed it.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Megan Denman, 29, in Fresno, California 5th Fresno teacher in 8 month jailed after Sex With Student Fresno, Calif. (The Weekly Vice) - Megan Denman, a 29-year-old teacher at Hoover High School in Fresno has been jailed after she allegedly had sex with a student. According to Fresno police, Denman performed oral sex on and slept with a student under the age of 18. Denman has been placed on paid administrative leave by school officials while the investigation continues. Denman, who also assists as a cheerleading coach at the school, was reportedly married just 18 months ago. She was booked into the Fresno County Jail on charges of sex with a minor and oral sex with a person under the age of 18. She was released after posting $55,000 bail. There definitely seems to be a trend showing recently. Recently married teachers pick on gossipy students for extra sex. Sex between teachers and students has been going on for thousands of years, but in the past, nobody talked.
Tech Support Pits: From: Maurice Re: Can you edit PDF files? Dear Webby Is it possible to edit PDF files without shelling out $900 for that Adobe program? I just need to fill out forms, that are in PDF, so that I can fax them back from the computer. Maurice Dear Maurice Yes, sure you can! I use PDF Exchange from Tracker. They have a free version, which is mainly a viewer, but lets you do some basic editing. The more advanced versions give you complete control of PDF files, as if you had them in a word processor. One word of caution, though, the program has been written in England, and you might find the top menu not very intuitive. It works, but takes some getting used to. Just like electro-mechanics cuss about "weird limey logic" when working on British equipment, you might be doing some cussing until you get the hang of it. One tip, to enter data into a spot on a PDF form, you don't click on "EDIT" or "INSERTt", but on "TYPEWRITER". Weird, by our logic, but it does work! However, to paste a transparent background GIF picture with your signature, there you use EDIT, PASTE. You can then grab the corners of the signature picture and stretch or squish it to fit. If you have to fill out a big stack of forms, you will get used to the British logic soon, and even get fast at it. However, if you use the program only at tax time, make a text file with notes and tips in YOUR words, so that you can refresh your knowledge next year at this time with a minimum of cussing. For Home use you can now get PDF-XChange Lite for FREE. Just download it and start using it. If you need more features, buy the PRO license and unlock the already installed PRO features. That company has recently moved to Vancouver Island in BC, but the program is still unmistakenly British. Have FUN! DearWebby

An infantry brigade was training in the summer heat, learning methods to counter Soviet offensive tactics. That summer, the area had experienced an infestation of rattlesnakes. Officers and NCOs were given one magazine of live ammunition to counter this danger, as several men had already been bitten. So much ammunition was expended shooting, supposedly, at snakes that the post commander demanded that every officer and NCO who had shot at a snake present the dead snake as proof that the expenditure of rounds was justifiable. The next day, the post commander entered his office and spotted a shoe box on his desk. He opened it, revealing a sleepy and sluggish, but very live, rattlesnake. Inside the box were twenty expended cartridges, and a short note. The note said, "I missed!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Freezing Eggs Until a good friend shared this tip with me, I did not know that fresh eggs can be whisked together and frozen for up to six months. I have been doing this for over a year now. I buy large eggs when they are on sale in the 18 pack cartons. I keep out about six for use in the fridge and then whisk together whites and yolks of the remaining 12 eggs until just combined. I then measure them into my ice ice-cube trays, using 3 Tbsp. of the mixture per segment (3 Tbsp. is equivalent to 1 large egg). Freeze them until solid, then transfer the cubes to a freezer bag for up to 6 months. Don't forget to date the freezer bag. When ready to use take out one or more and thaw in the refrigerator.

A beautiful young lady arrived breathlessly at the church, jsut as the congregation was rushing to their cars. "Is - m - ass - out?" she panted to one of the slower dowagers. "No, child, but your skirt IS a little short," she replied. Her well-endowed sister tried to enter the church the following week and was refused by one of the ushers because he felt she wasn't properly attired. "But, I have a divine right!" she argued. The usher answered, "And your left isn't bad either, but you can't come in here unless you cover them up a bit more." That usher got fired that day.

Someone in our neighborhood put a huge sofa out by the curb for trash collection. Since it was in good shape, many motorists slowed down for a look. But when they saw how enormous it was, they all left. Eventually a compact car pulled up, and two men got out. "This I've got to see," I thought. They removed the cushions, turned the sofa upside down, and shook it hard. Then they picked up all the coins that tumbled out and drove off.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Alexandra Galante, 21 in Fort Myers, Florida Jailed After Fighting Officers about sunbathing Nude Fort Myers, Florida - Alexandra Galante, a 21-year-old Fort Myers woman was jailed Saturday after she allegedly went on a topless rampage after police informed her she couldn't sunbathe in the nude. According to Fort Myers Police, a resident at the San Simeon condominiums called officers around 11:30 a.m. that Galante would look better with clothes on. When officers arrived on the scene, Galante was still topless and was lying face-up. Her bikini bottom had been pulled together in a way where her pubic region was exposed. When officers asked her to put her top on, Galante argued that since people are allowed to be nude on a beach, laying nude next to a pool shouldn't be any different. Galante put her top back on, but argued with officers while doing so. She then began yelling at a woman who was recording the incident with her cell phone. When officers asked Galante for her identification card, she became extremely belligerent and began screaming at the officer. She then refused to put her hands behind her back when the officer tried to place her under arrest. When an officer attempted to grab her arm, she tried to flee arrest into the pool. When officers where finally able to get her into the squad car, Galante allegedly spit at and kicked the glass partition. She also screamed obscenities at the officers until she was threatened with pepper spray. Galante was booked into the Lee County Jail and charged with indecent exposure, breach of peace, and resisting an officer without violence.

As a new bride, Aunt Edna moved into the small home on her husband's ranch near Snowflake. She put a shoe box on a shelf in her closet and asked her husband never to touch it. For fifty years Uncle Jack left the box alone, until Aunt Edna was old and dying. One day when he was putting their affairs in order, he found the box again and thought it might hold something important. Opening it, he found two doilies and $82,500 in cash. He took the box to her and asked about the contents. "My mother gave me that box the day we married," she explained. "She told me to make a doily to help ease my frustrations every time I got mad at you." Uncle Jack was very touched that in 50 years she'd only been mad at him twice. "Where did the $82,500 come from?" he asked. "Oh, that's the money I made selling all the doilies."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Colander to Remove Excess Salt from Nuts We love pistachios, but many times they have a lot of salt on them.

A little boy was afraid of the dark. One night his mother told him to go out to the back porch and bring her the broom. The little boy turned to his mother and said, "Mama, I don't want to go out there. It's dark." The mother smiled reassuringly at her son. "You don't have to be afraid of the dark," she explained. "Jesus is out there. He'll look after you and protect you." The little boy looked at his mother real hard and asked, "Are you sure he's out there?" "Yes, I'm sure. He is everywhere, and he is always ready to help you when you need him," she said. The little boy thought about that for a minute and then went to the back door and cracked it a little. Peering out into the darkness, he called, "Jesus? If you're out there, would you please hand me the broom?"

Scanning the phone book for a garbage collection service, I came across one that clearly wasn't afraid to tackle any job. Their ad read: "Residential hauling. All types of junk removed. No load too large or too small. Garages, basements, addicts."
