______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Wesley Aaron Dicus, 27, Pensacola, Floriduh Florida waiter arrested for stealing $3,000 diamond ring A Florida waiter is accused of stealing a $3,000 diamond ring that fell off a customer's finger. Pensacola police tell news outlets that 27-year-old Wesley Aaron Dicus was arrested Tuesday on charges of grand theft and dealing in stolen property. The Pensacola News Journal reports a 39-year-old woman told police she believed the ring slipped off when she put lotion on her hands. The ring was later identified on an online app called OfferUp. Police say detectives posing as a couple met with Dicus and he offered to sell it to them for $2,000. Police arrested him when the markings on the ring matched the woman's description. Dicus remains in jail on a $12,500 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Doris Re: Wacky punctuation marks on web pages Dear Webby Dear Webby: Lately I have seen more and more web pages that have question marks and wacky symbols where one would expect a quote or double-quote mark or some other punctuation mark. I have also seen it in some of the blander blogs. I won't visit those again anyway, because of their lack of interesting content, but I am wondering if that is just sloppiness or some new trend. I have even seen it in some articles on anti-government on-line "papers" like CNN and NY-Times-online. What's the story behind that? Doris Dear Doris It's just sloppiness by people who don't know HTML, and who just quickly slobber their stuff into MS WORD and then save it as HTML. What is a real nuisance is that sometimes it looks OK, but sometimes it doesn't. You may have noticed in the Bonehead Awards, paragraphs that I copied form certain online newspapers, also have that problem. Usually I catch the stuff, but sometimes I don't notice the curly quotes and similar gibberish from yuppies pretending to be literate. Sorry about that! Have FUN! DearWebby
A man was suffering from a stomach ache, so he told his wife who suggested he try the tablets the Doctor had given her for a similar pain. After taking his wife's tablets for a week, the pain disappeared but he developed two rather tender lumps, one behind each ear. He went to his doctor, showed him the lumps, and explained what had happened. Whereby the Doctor called him all the fools under the sun, saying, "You bloody idiot! I was treating your wife for a fallen womb, God knows how I'm going to get your balls back down!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Saving Money on Packed Lunches All four of my kids take packed lunches. To save money on the snacks that go in, I buy big bags of chips, cheeses, whatever, and bargain sandwich bags, then pack the snacks in them. Saves a lot over buying the individual snack packs that are made to fit into the lunches. I make my own peanut butter crackers too, with saltines or Ritz-type. It takes a few minutes extra in the morning, but it does save money. Marjorie

At one point during the little league game, the coach said to his young son, who was playing in the game, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?" The little boy nodded yes. "Do you understand that what matters is whether we win together as a team?" The little boy nodded yes. "So," the coach continued, "when a strike is called, or you are out at first, you don't argue or curse or attack the umpire and call him nasty names. Do you understand all that?" Again, the little boy nodded yes. "Good," said the coach. "Now go over there and explain it to your mother."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Marcos Pacheco-Bustamante 46, Miami-Dade, Floriduh Police impersonator pulls over uniformed Miami-Dade police detective A police impersonator chose the wrong person to mess with on Friday when he pulled over a Miami-Dade police detective, authorities said. According to an arrest report, the detective was driving north on Interstate 95 in a county-issued unmarked vehicle when he was pulled over shortly before 7:30 a.m. by Marcos Pacheco-Bustamante. Police said Pacheco-Bustamante, 46, of Miami, who was driving a Ford Crown Victoria, pulled up behind the detective's vehicle and activated police sirens, causing the detective to change lanes. Police said the suspect continued to follow the detective, so the detective pulled over to the shoulder of the road near Northwest 119th Street. The detective, who was in full uniform, got out of his vehicle and realized that he was dealing with a police impersonator, the report said. The detective arrested Pacheco-Bustamante and searched his vehicle, finding an H&K BB gun replica and a blue police light, authorities said. Pacheco-Bustamante was interviewed by detectives, who said he confessed to pulling over other drivers. Pacheco-Bustamante is being held at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on a charge of impersonating a police officer. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rhonda Re: Clean temp files and obsolete stuff Dear Webby Which of the hundreds of programs available for cleaning old temp files and other useless stuff is the most bang for the buck ?

At one point the auditor exclaimed, "Mr. Carr, we feel it is a great privilege to be allowed to live and work in the USA. As a citizen you have an obligation to pay taxes, and we expect you to eagerly pay them with a smile." "Thank goodness," returned Mr. Carr, with a giant grin on his face from ear to ear, "I thought you were going to want me to pay with money."

Three cheerleaders died in an accident trying to jump the Grand Canyon. They are at the pearly gates of Heaven. St. Peter tells them that they can enter the gates only if they can answer one simple religious question. The question posed by St. Peter is - "What is Easter"? The first cheerleader replies, "Oh, that's easy! It's the holiday in November when we all get together, eat turkey and are thankful." "Wrong!, you are not welcome here, I'm afraid. You must go to the other place!" replies St.Peter. Then he turns to the second cheerleader, and asks her the same question - "What is Easter?" The second cheerleader replies, "Easter is the holiday in December when we put up a nice tree, exchange presents, and celebrate the birth of Jesus." St. Peter looks at the second cheerleader, bangs his head on the pearly gates in disgust and tells her she's wrong and will have to join her friend in the other place; she is not welcome in Heaven. He then peers over his glasses at the third cheerleader and asks, "Do YOU know what Easter is?" The third cheerleader smiles confidently and looks St. Peter in the eyes, "I know what Easter is." "Oh?" says St. Peter, incredulously. "Easter is the Christian holiday that coincides with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Jesus and his disciples were eating at the last supper and Jesus was later deceived and turned over to the Romans by one of his disciples. The Romans took him to be crucified and he was stabbed in the side, made to wear a crown of thorns, and was hung on a cross with nails through his hands and feet. He was buried in a nearby cave which was sealed off by a large boulder." St. Peter smiles broadly with delight. Then the third cheerleader continues ...

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Robert Desmond Johnson, 38, Plam Bay, Floriduh Robert Desmond Johnson arrested for giving his 17 year old daughter pot brownies and having her sell them at a Floriduh High School. A father and daughter went to jail after selling pot brownies that sent two teenagers to the hospital last week, according to the Palm Bay Police Department. Robert Desmond Johnson, 38, of Palm Bay, and his 17-year-old old daughter were each charged Friday with delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school. Johnson was also charged with delivery of a controlled substance to a minor, possession of cannabis with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police also charged a second teen with sale and delivery of marijuana and two teens with possession of marijuana. Thursday, a student became unconscious at Heritage High School and was taken to Palm Bay Community Hospital by ambulance, police said. That same day, some parents took their teen to the hospital for similar symptoms, the affidavit said. Police determined both boys had eaten brownies baked with marijuana. Johnson made the brownies and gave them to his daughter to sell to her friend who attends Heritage, police said. Officers arrived at Johnson's home Friday with a search warrant. They recovered more than 400 grams of marijuana in plastic bags and jars. Johnson told police he grows the marijuana in his garage, the affidavit states. Johnson posted $62,500 bail Sunday at the Brevard County Detention Center in Sharpes. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Louis Re: Telemarketer stop Dear Webby I have a better way to be rid of telemarketers than making them wait as you suggested in today's Tech Support Pit.

Last Sunday, the Gospel was the one about the ten bridesmaids. The five good bridesmaids remembered to take plenty of oil for their lamps; five bad bridesmaids did not.

In the light with the five good bridesmaids or in the dark with the five bad bridesmaids?" It seems I got that one wrong!

A man and a woman are driving down the highway when another car passes them. The woman notices that the occupants of the other car are young and obviously in love. The girl is sitting very close to her boyfriend as they cruise down the highway. This causes the woman to think back when she and her husband were young and in love, and wondering where the show of affection had disappeared to over the years. Finally she says to her husband, "Remember when we used to be like that young couple? Where did the love go, honey?" Her question was met with a few moments of pensive thought, while he looked at his gnarled hands on the steering wheel. Then he replied, "I don't know, but I haven't moved."

Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, April 13
It stopped snowing, and it started to melt. 
Typical April.

By the time you read this, I will be on the way to Calgary
to get more injections into my eyeballs. Barb, who used to
be my secretary, will be driving me, becasue after the
injections I can't see the road and traffic.
There won't be a Friday, Saturday or Sunday issue of the
Humor Letter. Sunday evening I will send out the Monday
issue.

That will give you time to print out yesterday's Hot Key
cheat sheet, and the one from today. That one is a repeat,
but quite a few subscriber asked to see it again.
Some people write those Hot Keys on a narrow masking tape
and stick that to the monitor frame.

In the good old days, when keyboards had the function keys
on the left, where God had intended them to be for getting
work done much faster, we had space above the regular keys,
where they put the functions keys now. In those days the
bigger programs like Word Perfect, Word Star, Quattro, Word,
etc. had cardboard strips with the hot keys printed on them
to lay up above the regular keys. You can still make one of
those, and just glue it onto the narrow free strip above the
functon keys.

Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ Thanks to Walter, The Stonecarver for reporting these boneheads. An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Juan Wang and Joseph Emery Austin, Texas 'Hundreds of condoms' destroy pipe, police raid Texas massage parlor A husband and wife accused of operating an Austin prostitution ring are facing felony charges following an investigation that began when police discovered a waste pipe connected to the business was clogged with "hundreds of condoms," according to records. Juan Wang and her husband, Joseph Emery, the owners of Jade Massage Therapy LLC, each face a charge of engaging in organized criminal activity. Neither suspect was listed as an inmate at the Travis County Jail on Tuesday afternoon. The investigation into the massage parlor began Feb. 7, when the property manager for the Jade Massage location in the 11400 block of North Ranch Road called police to express her suspicion that prostitution was happening at the business. She "became aware of a problem when an industrial waste disposal unit connecting the property to city sewer services became clogged and destroyed by hundreds of condoms," affidavits for Wang and Emery state. The property manager's tip was the second complaint of possible prostitution at Jade Massage that police had received in three months. After the discovery of the destroyed pipes, police searched Backpage.com, which often solicits prostitution services, for advertisements for the business. They found several. Advertisements for Jade Massage were posted on Backpage.com as often as two to three times per day, the affidavits state. In the following weeks, police staked out Jade Massage's second location in the 9100 block of Anderson Mill Road. Officers pulled over a couple of suspected john's who had gone into the massage parlor, who allegedly both admitted that they had paid for sexual services during their time inside. On March 22, members of the Austin Police Department Human Trafficking Unit and members of the Criminal Conspiracy Unit executed search warrants at the Alameda Trace Circle location. Inside, Wang was found inside a room with a nude man, and another woman was found inside a different room with another nude male, the affidavit states. Police simultaneously executed a search warrant at Wang and Emery's home and discovered over $65,000 in a safe. Further investigation into the couple revealed Wang had been stopped Feb. 5 at Austin Bergstrom International Airport by a TSA agent who found $30,000 in "duct taped bundles" of cash in her possession. She claimed the money was earned from her massage business and that she was taking it with her to China to pay for a medical procedure. She was allowed to pass through with the money, but only after the agent called Emery to verify her story. Both Wang and Emery would later tell police that they didn't know the names of their employees, who were all located and recruited by a "friend." Ledgers for Jade Massage showed no payments to the women, but they did show that Jade Massage's customers, almost all of whom were men, regularly tipped the masseues between $40 and $120 on top of a $60 house charge. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Connie Re: Old Keyboard shortcuts Dear Webby Yes, I remember seeing your standard keyboard shortcuts, but thought I would remember each of them. Guess what? I didn't. Can you show them again, please? Connie Dear Connie You are not the only one requesting those. So here they are: The F Keys (Function Keys) have gone more and more out of style ever since some dingbats decided to put them on top, instead of on the left side where God intended them to be for maximum productivity, just so that they can make cubicles narrower. The only common ones that are still surviving are these: F1 is HELP CTRL and F4 together closes a window ALT and F4 together closes a program CTRL and A together selects everything in the open window CTRL and C together copies what you have selected CTRL and V together pastes what you have copied CTRL and INSERT together copies what you have selected SHIFT and INSERT together pastes what you have slected SHIFT and DELETE together copies AND cuts what you have selected CTRL and Z reverses the last action if it was a write or delete, that is the UNdo key CTRL S saves the file you are working on CTRL and ALT and DELETE brings up the System Manager. You use that for changing your password. ALT and the SPACE BAR together open the menu of the program you are in, or Launchy, if you are using it. CTRL and F together is the search for a word in the open window. Some programs use some of the other F keys as well, but not in a world wide consistent manner. The ones I listed are the only ones you need to remember nowadays. There are also some Windows specific keys that use a combination of the Windows key and a letter. The "Windows Key" is the one on the bottom row, that has the Microsoft flag on it. To save space here I'll use *W* for the Windows key *W* Opens the start menu *W* and D minimizes open programs *W* and E opens Explorer at the top, not at some silly location *W* and F opens the file search (computer, not word search in the document you are in) *W* and L careful with this one, it has to do with logging OFF or locking your computer *W* and M "Boss-Alert" key. Closes open windows, but hitting *W* M again does not pop them open again like *W* D does. *W* and R opens the RUN box. *W* R calc opens the calculator *W* and U opens the Utility manager for stuff like the narrator, magnifier, etc. Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Terry Peck, 33, Southport, Gold Coast, Australia Australian Rapper Terry Peck skipped out on $621 food and booze bill An aspiring rapper gorged himself on seafood and alcohol at a Gold Coast restaurant and then fled into the surf without paying his $621 bill, a Queensland court has heard. Terry Peck, 33, allegedly devoured two lobsters, 17 oyster shooters, a baby octopus, and several beers at Main Beach's Omeros Bros Restaurant, all by himself, because his fan did not want to be seen with him, before making his getaway. The staff from Main Beach restaurant took off in hot pursuit. Peck, who goes by the name 2pec, ran onto the beach and into the surf, and efforts to cajole him back to shore were unsuccessful. Two police jumped on a lifeguard's jet ski, caught and tenderized him and handcuffed him right in the ocean before towing him to the beach. Peck was charged with stealing and two counts of serious assault of a police officer, and appeared in the Southport Magistrates Court today. The court heard Peck allegedly committed the offences while on parole after being released from prison in February. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Mina Re: Keyboard shortcuts Dear Webby I got all your old keyboard shortcuts and love them. Do you have any new ones? Mina Dear Mina Yes, there are some that are not in my old list of keyboard shortcuts. They are for browsing and work on most browsers. I use Chrome, except for posting on forums and for shopping, where Chrome fails when you try to preview. For that you have to use FireFox. They still have not fixed that Chrome bug. OK, here is the most important shortcut, that you can't replace by mousing around: CTRL T If you restart because of some silly updates or because your 147 open tabs got the memory all bunged up, the browser may or may not open with all your tabs. Sometimes it may briefly ask if you want it to restore all the old tabs. If you don't get your curser onto that little pop-up within 1.5 seconds, you are stuck with a browser, that has forgotten all your 147 tabs. Even worse, if you had 3 browser windows, each with lots of open tabs! Now what? CTRL T restores one browser window with all it's tabs. While you got your paws on the keyboard, hit it again! CTRL T and the next window is restored CTRL T again, and the third window is restored! If you accidentally closed a tab, and just as it cloed you spotted something interesting? CTRL SHIFT T re-opens it. Got CTRL T firmly scratched into the monitor frame? If you keep a whole bunch of tabs open, then you really should get the ONE-TAB browser extension. It is like a manageable history. ALT SHIFT Z closes a tab and puts it into the ONE-TAB list. You can re-open it at any time. You can even change ALT SHIFT Z to whatever is most comfortable for your hand. Isn't that downright civilized? Also very handy is the space bar when you are reading a long article. It scrolls you down one paragraph. You probably know about CTRL D for bookmarking a page and putting it into the chaos, where you can never find anything. If you ever want to make the bookmarks usable, export them and put them into a spreadsheet. Add a new column on the left and put rating numbers or category codes into that column. Yes, I know, the exporting from Chrome rather lame. You can't export in CSV format, just in HTML, but most modern spreadsheets can handle that. After you have your bookmarks in a spreadsheet, dump the ones in the browser and start fresh. That way you can simply add the fresh ones once a month or year to the spreadsheet. In the spreadsheet, of course, you can sort them any way you want and re-sort differently in a second. Next one is CTRL K If you want to search for purple peale eaters, hit CTRL K and the search bar opens, start typing your search phrase and hit ENTER. CTL L gets the cursor to the URL line, ready to type in the domain name of your choice. Overloaded your memory yet? Say you want to go to the 7th tab. CTRL 7 CTRL and the number of the tab you want, jumps you there. OK, OK, I'll quit in a moment. One more important shortcut. Lets say you want slightly bigger fonts: CTRL + Smaller: CTRL - There are a few more, but these are the most important ones. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Garlic Bread Recipes By katrine2706 [85 Posts, 33 Comments] Garlic bread is my favorite. I love the aroma and the rich flavor of garlic. But it is not always available in most bakeries here in my province so I make my own simple garlic bread recipe at home. Garlic breads are also often sprinkled with garlic powder but in my recipe I chose to use real garlic clove as it adds more aroma and flavor plus I don't have to buy the powder which costs $1.46 while the garlic clove is only $.10. That means it is another big savings for a thrifty mom like me. Ingredients: sliced bread 1 Tbsp salted butter 1 tsp grated garlic Steps: Melt butter in a saucer. Stir in the grated garlic clove until distributed. Brush the mixture all over the sliced bread. You can use unsalted butter if you wish but salted butter works well for me because I don't have to garnish my bread with salt. Bake/toast in 180 C for 10 minutes. Serve hot! Traditional Garlic Bread uses Italian or French bread, that you slice yourself, thick. Because gluten and me don't get along anymore, I had to step back from those nicely crusty breads. You can use "Texas Toast" bread. It is similar, cut thick, and has a LOT less gluten. The end result tastes almost exactly the same, but no Gluten hassle Have FUN! DearWebby

The next day the 85-year-old man reappeared at the doctor's office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day. The doctor asked what happened and the man explained: "Well, doc,it's like this - First I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing. Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, and still nothing. We even called up Earleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit and she even tried squeezin' it between her knees, but still nothing." The doctor was shocked!

He got the pix and just got himself 6 years. The court heard how Taylor, who taught at a south Hertfordshire school, pretended to be a 13 year-old boy on Instagram to befriend the girls, aged between 10 and 15. He then coerced them into sending naked pictures of themselves, which he forwarded to other children, the court heard. Nicholas Taylor, 27, of Barnet, north London, threatened to kill himself if they did not comply, a jury heard. St Albans Crown Court was told that Taylor also forwarded pictures on to other children and girl guides - where he was a leader. Judge Jonathan Carroll described him as every parent's "worst nightmare". The court heard how Taylor, who taught at a south Hertfordshire school, pretended to be a 13 year-old boy on Instagram to befriend the girls, aged between 10 and 15. At an earlier hearing, Taylor pleaded guilty to six counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, two counts of making indecent photographs of a child and one count distributing indecent photographs of a child. He was also made subject to a lifetime sexual harm prevention order. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ron Re: Euro vis "bent e" Dear Webby On items from Europe I see a symbol that looks like a slightly bent "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 What you call "bent e" is the "Estimated" symbol. It's a ROUND, not oval "e" with a thin crossbar, straight vertical insides and often the open end appears skimpy or kicked in. An example of it's use would be a package of Lasagna noodles. They are not going to file down a noodle to make the weight of the package exact, and they are not going to throw in a splinter of a noodle for that either. If you read "e 1 kg" then that means that at packing time the noodles weighed approximately 1 Kilogram +/- one noodle. By the time you get them, they will have dried down 10% or more anyway, so that is close enough for Europe. Because Europeans are used to the Estimated sign, never use a small e instead of the Euro sign. It would confuse them to no end. "What does he mean, Estimated 4.95 ? For the Euro, just write it out if your fonts don't have the Euro sign. Have FUN! DearWebby
A preacher went to his church office on Monday morning and discovered a dead mule (jackass to the knowing) in the church yard. He called the police. Since there did not appear to be any foul play, the police referred the preacher to the health department. They said since there was no health threat that he should call the sanitation department. The sanitation manager said he could not pick up the mule without authorization from the mayor. Now, the preacher knew the mayor, and was not to eager to call him. The mayor had a bad temper and was generally hard to deal with, but the preacher called him anyway. The mayor did not disappoint. He immediately began to rant and rave at the pastor and finally said, "Why did you call me anyway? Isn't it your job to bury the dead?" The preacher paused for a brief prayer and asked the Lord to direct his response. He was led to say, "Yes, Mayor, it is my job to bury the dead, but I always like to notify the next of kin first!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use a Tea Light in Pillar Candles If you like to decorate with large pillar candles, but don't like it when they get short, just let them burn down to the height you like, pour out the extra wax to form a hollow inside of the candle. Slip in a tea light and then you can just change tea lights each time you want to have candlelight. By QueenBeeCrafts In case you don't know what a "Tea Light" is, it's those small candles in aluminum foil cups that you see in some restaurants to keep food warm, while it is sitting on the table or on a serving cart. They cost about a dollar for a bag of ten at restaurant suply stores, and about $5 for a bag with 100 of them in it. If you have a choice, get the ones that have a foil covered cork float for holding the wick up. Those you can replenish with melted candle drippings and stubs. If you like the soft glow of a pillar candle with the flame deep down in the crater, make sure you drill an air hole upwards to where the tea light sits. You get a much steadier flame, and you avoid melting down the shell. I have seen fancy and elaborately decorated "Pilgrimage" candles that were two, - maybe three, generations old, and still in fine shape because of an air hole to keep them cool. To reach down and light the wick, use a piece of spaghetti, not a butane BBQ lighter. Have FUN! DerWebby

This time, however, there was a man with a gun who entered to rob the house. As the thief was about to leave the man said, "You have to go and meet my wife." The thief said, "Why would you want me to meet your wife?" The man explained, "Well, she's been expecting you for twenty years."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Timothy Lee Marble, 50, Napa, California Girl Reports Escaping Kidnapper By Jumping From Truck Onto Highway A California man is facing kidnapping charges after authorities say a 13-year-old runaway jumped out of his moving truck and onto a highway, prompting him to call 911. Timothy Marble, 50, of Napa, reported the girl’s escape about 5:40 a.m. Saturday after he said she fled his vehicle and refused to come out of some bushes, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office said. Once deputies arrived at the scene in Bodega Bay, the girl emerged covered in road rash. She accused Marble of sexually abusing her, injecting her with meth and scratching his name into her leg with a knife. “His name was still visible for the detectives,” the sheriff’s office said in a release. The child said she met Marble at a Napa gas station early Friday morning after running away from home following an argument with her mother Thursday night. Marble allegedly offered to give her a ride. After accepting the lift but refusing his sexual advances, she reported, he tied her to a tree and sexually assaulted her, the sheriff’s office said. Over the next 24 hours, she told officers, he continued the assaults inside his truck and forced her to take drugs. Deputies took her to a hospital, where she was reunited with her mother. “He has a different side of it, but there’s definitely probable cause in making the arrest,” Sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Crum told the San Francisco Chronicle. “His accounts of the event differed somewhat. Some corroboration and some distortion.” Marble, who authorities said is a convicted felon with a rap sheet that includes drug charges, was arrested and faces 11 felony counts of sexual acts with a minor, kidnapping and child abuse. He is being held without bail with no attorney listed. Authorities said this is his first sexual assault charge. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Glennis Re: How to block mail from an ex Dear Webby I can't change my email address because of my business, but I need to block mail from my ex. His mails are polite and friendly, not of a harassing type, but I just don't want any more mail from him. He forges different sender addresses, so it's not easy to avoid his mails. What do you suggest? Glennis Dear Glennis Just get MailWasher, from the side menu. Then look at a few of his mails and find something that is common to all of them. With MailWasher you can easily peek at the hidden header stuff, and even if you don't find anything common in the message body, you will easily find something that shows up in all of his letters, but not in legitimate mail. Then make a filter that is triggered by that. Making filters is childishly easy with MailWasher Pro, even fun. Set the filter to delete his mails automatically, without showing them, and you won't ever see them again. With the filters you can have them triggered by many different items. If any of ten different traps recognizes him, his mail gets nuked. To fine tune your filter, you can set it so that it just flags his mail for deletion. That way, if somebody else also uses one of the trigger phrases, you can modify the filter. MailWasher conveniently tells you which of your filters has flagged a piece of mail. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Crockpot Chicken with Gravy Recipe Total Time: About 5 minutes prep Yield: Serves around 7 or 8 Source: A busy Mom's desperate mind! :) Ingredients: 1 average sized chicken 1/4 cup mesquite seasoning 2/3 cup water 3 Tbsp Cornstarch Steps: Place your chicken in your crockpot. Rub all over with 1/4 cup mesquite seasoning. You may wish to try another, lemon pepper would be great too! :) Believe it or not, you do not need any liquid, it makes it own. It is very tender and moist when done! Cook on high for about 3 hours and 20 minutes. Place your chicken on a serving platter and set in microwave to keep warm till your gravy is done. *You do NOT need to turn microwave on, door being shut will do the trick.:) Using a mesh colander, strain the drippings from the bottom of the crockpot. You just want to remove the solid bits. Pour your strained drippings into a saucepan. Add 3 Tablespoons of cornstarch to 2/3 Cup of cold water and shake well. Add this to your pan. Cook on high whisking constantly for only 2 or 3 minutes. All done!! You will end up with about 2 cups gravy. * You could probably cook this longer on a low setting if you must be gone all day.

Hudson was dressed in what appeared to be a pilot’s uniform and claimed he was a “dead-heading crew member.” During the baggage inspection, CBP officers discovered that Hudson had what appeared to be two fraudulent Delta Airlines ID badges. During the examination of Hudson’s luggage, CBP officers noticed that the sides and bottom appeared to be unusually thick and heavy. Hudson was escorted to a private search room where his suitcase was probed revealing a white powder that tested positive for cocaine. Hudson was arrested for the import of a controlled substance and was turned over to Homeland Security Investigations. The total weight of cocaine seized was approximately five pounds with an estimated street value of $85,000. Hudson faces federal narcotics smuggling charges and will be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the U.S. Eastern District Court of New York. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Brent Re: XSS-Protection error in Chrome Dear Webby What is this XSS-Protection error in Chrome, that pops up when I try to post on a forum or sometimes when I try to do some shopping? It is totally unpredictable, and after filling out a big shopping cart, it dumps the whole thing, irretrievably! How do I get rid of that or fix it? Brent Dear Brent It is a bug in Chrome version 57. Version 58 beta apparently still has the bug too. XSS auditor has been around for a decade, and until version 57, Chrome handled it correctly, then they scrwd it up, but don't know how. There is no practical method yet to get around the bug. Theoretically, you could dump all your tabs, close Chrome, and start it with a command line directive to not use XSS auditor, but that is quite useless, even if it did work, since it too dumps your shoping cart. About all you can do is use FireFox for those sites, where Chrome messes up. FireFox handles XSS auditor correctly. Have FUN! DearWebby
A businessman had a meeting with his new son-in-law. "I love my daughter, and now I welcome you into the family," said the man. "To show you how much we care for you, I'm making you a 50-50 partner in my business. All you have to do is go to the factory every day and learn the operations." The son-in-law interrupted. "I hate factories. I can't stand the noise." "I see," replied the father-in-law. "Well then you'll work in the office and take charge of some of the operations." "I hate office work," said the son-on-law. "I can't stand being stuck behind a desk all day." "Wait a minute," said the father-in-law. "I just make you half-owner of a moneymaking organization, but you don't like factories and won't work in a office. What am I going to do with you?" "Easy," said the young man. "I'll rent you my 50% and retire on the proceeds."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Ball Point Pen From Leather Try hairspray! I had a blue pen and the ink went on my fingers. I went to push the stool in and it went on the stool. I tried Jif, bleach and alcohol, they all didn't work. When it came to hairspray, it came straight off with just one wipe down. So if you have any leather that has been marked with ink, don't stop and think that it's a scar for life. Let me tell you that hairspray was the best product I ever used! By Olivia from Bexley, NSW My children's school work got wet and the ink transferred to my light beige leather car seats. I could read the school work on my seats. I went to this site quickly before I left for work. I grabbed a few items suggested: alcohol, hairspray, soap and worked on the spots at red lights. Nothing worked. I went into work and someone told me about Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It's by the cleaning products in the store. It worked! No fading. I even tried it on a old rust spot on my sink I could never get out, and it worked. I had to submit this today. By Ami from Shorewood, IL

A Tampa teacher is facing serious charges after police said she was drunk and had an unlicensed teen boy driving her around. Terra Virgin was arrested on Sunday and charged with child abuse and neglect. Police said Virgin, 32, was intoxicated and had an open can of beer while in the passenger seat of a Toyota SUV that was stopped on suspicion of DUI at Kennedy Boulevard and Westland Avenue. Officers said the 14-year-old son of Virgin's boyfriend was driving the SUV. The teen does not have a driver's license. Police said Virgin told them she had five beers, was too drunk to drive and was getting the teen to drive her to a Waffle House. Virgin is a math teacher at Freedom High School. She has been a teacher in Hillsborough County since 2013. The boy was transported and released into his father's custody. Virgin bonded out of jail Monday afternoon. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ollie Re: Hot hard drive Dear Webby I opened up my computer to vacuum out the dust bunnies like you had suggested last spring, well better late than never, and I noticed that the hard drive was giving off a lot of heat. It was very hot to the touch. Is that a sign that it will die soon? Ollie Dear Ollie That is quite normal. Today's fast hard drives do run quite warm. If you can touch it and keep your fingers on it for five seconds, it's at normal operating temperature. You could not keep your fingers that long in water that is 60 degrees C (140 F) without yelling. The temperature is probably between 45 C and 55 C. The oil in the bearings is good for 200 degrees C (400 F). I would not worry about that drive. Keep in mind though, sooner or later every hard drive crashes, and then you will really appreciate it if you have a reasonably recent back-up. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Marinade for Making Beef Chuck Blade Tender Even the most "not so tender" cut of meat, such as beef chuck blade can cook so tender you would not know it's chuck. The secret is to marinate the beef chuck over night. Use lee kum kee chicken marinade teriyaki (or similar brand) along with green, orange, yellow, and red bell peppers, one medium white onion, lemon herb, and steak seasoning. Cook with medium-low heat on stove for about 30 to 45 min. Make sure to marinate in a closed container. By Esther

KIDS PERSPECTIVE ON ADULT BEHAVIOR You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming. --Alan, age 10 No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with. --Kirsten, age 10 WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED? Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then. --Camille,age 10 No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married. It just leads to fighting and kids. --Freddie, age 6 HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED? You might have to guess, depending on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids. --Derrick, age 8 WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON? Both don't want any more kids. --Lori, age 8 WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE? Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough. --Lynnette, age 8 On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date. --Martin, age 10 WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE? When they're rich. --Pam, age 7 The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that. --Curt, age 7 The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do. --Howard, age 8 IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED? It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them. --Anita, age 9 HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED? There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there? --Kelvin, age 8 HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK? Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a garbage can. -- Katrina, age 10 Take the garbage out to the curb at night, so that the morning does not start with a fight. -- Peter, age 7 I would build a treehouse for the kids, as far away as possible, for some peace and quiet when I want to cuddle up with my wife on the couch. -- Thomas, age 8 The husband should not start laughing every time the smoke detector goes off in the kitchen and make the wife mad for the rest of the day. -- Barbie If the daddy brings home some flowers, even if they are the weird ones from the cemetery, then the mom forgets what she was going to argue about and they smile and smooch instead. -- Holly

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Making a Magnetic Chalk Board A homemade chalkboard is cheap/easy to make, and fun for children and adults of all ages! Approximate Time: 3 hours + depending on size Supplies: sheet metal (in order to also be magnetic) chalkboard spray paint (available at hardware stores) chalk wooden planks cut to size for a frame (available at a hardware store) electric drill and screws for the frame Instructions: Visit the hardware store for all the supplies that you will need. The friendly people there will cut everything down to the size that you want your chalkboard to be. Remember that the sheet metal is going to be your chalkboard, get it cut larger if you plan on attaching a frame. Follow the directions on the back of the chalkboard spray paint, let it dry before attaching a frame. Remember, it may need several coats. There are several ways to attach a frame to the painted sheet metal, our piece was thin enough that we turned it over and used an electric drill and screwed short screws into the wood, this way they do not show in the front. It looks very professional. A frame is not necessary. Have fun drawing pictures or jotting out quick notes! By Grace from Seattle, WA Peel & Stick whiteboard sheets are from $15 and up, depending on size. You can peel them off if you move or paint the walls and stick them on again later. Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Darnell Washington, 38, Houston, Texas Dad reappears several days after leaving 6 year old son in the car. Darnell Washington pulled up to an adult bookstore, left the SUV running, and headed inside. Hours passed, and the man never came back. Meanwhile, his six-year-old son remained in the car. According to Click2Houston, six hours went by, and nobody returned for the boy. Even worse, he had nothing to eat or drink. As ABC13 reports, Diamond Hawkins was working at a tattoo shop when he finally saw the child sitting alone in the vehicle: “He was sitting in the truck and I didn't pay much attention because we have a business next door that sells cars. I thought his dad was next door buying a car or something.” Eventually, the owner of the adult bookstore saw the boy walking around the parking lot and went in search of his parents. According to the Houston Chronicle, the owner went inside the tattoo parlor and asked if the child belonged to anyone, but nobody knew who he was. At that point, he and Hawkins knew something was wrong. According to Click2Houston, Hawkins said the young boy couldn't provide them with any information: “He didn’t know where his dad was. He didn’t know where he lived, or his phone number, or anything. We looked for his dad and couldn’t find him anywhere, so somebody called the cops.” Another tattoo shop employee, John Ridley, made sure the boy was comfortable while they waited for the police to arrive. They eventually got the frightened child to talk: "He was really shy at first. He had a little food and we put him in front of the TV and he got accustomed to us. He opened up a bit and told us his name.” When nobody came to pick the six-year-old boy up from the police, he was placed with Texas Child Protective Services. As for Washington, he didn't show back up to the parking lot for several days. When he finally did return, Hawkins said Washington appeared to be more concerned about his vehicle than his son: “He came in and was asking about his car. Wasn't too concerned about the kid but said, 'Hey did you have a car towed, where's my car.'” Washington admitted to police that he was drinking on the day he left his child. He said he had “four shots of whiskey” and “four to five shots of tequila.” He explained that he passed out behind the store in an alley, woke up, couldn't find his child, and passed out again. He eventually found out where the child he left behind was when he called his own father, who let him know the police had him. Mardee Paige was at the tattoo parlor with her best friend celebrating her 70th birthday when the little boy was rescued from wandering around the parking lot. Paige said: “That person in my mind shouldn't have a child. Who knows what would have happened had somebody not brought him over here.” Washington was charged with child endangerment. His court date set for April 11. The young boy is now staying with friends. There was no mention of a mother in any report. She might be dead or in jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Danielle Re: Telemarketers Dear Webby I have been told not to be rude to telemarketers, just in case they are potential clients. I know you have a dangerously wicked sense of humor and have had some good tips about that in the past, but unfortunately I did not save them. What do you recommend? Danielle Dear Danielle Just tell the telemarketer that they should be talking to Farley Marblemouth and to hold on. Then, before they can reply to that, put them on hold. Eventually you'll hear the beeping that indicates a dead line. An alternative is to tell them that you, or whoever they want to talk to are too busy to listen to telemarketers and that they should send an email. They never do. If Call Indicator shows the name of a state, it is forged by a telemarketer. I don't even bother listening to their crap, I hit On/Off faster than they can get one word out. Have FUN! DearWebby
Redneck Manners Entertaining in Your Home a. A centerpiece for the table should never be anything prepared by a taxidermist. b. Do not allow the dog to eat at the table, even if his manners are better than those of your mother-in-law. Dining Out a. When decanting wine, make sure that you tilt the paper cup and pour slowly so as not to bruise the bouquet of the wine. b. If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your fingers covering the label. Personal Hygiene a. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done in private using one's own truck keys. b. Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days. If you live alone, however, deodorant is a waste of good money. c. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they tend to detract from a woman's jewelry and alter the taste of finger foods. Rules of the Road a. Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles, even if the gun is loaded and the deer is in sight. b. When approaching a four-way stop, the vehicle with the largest tires always has the right of way. c. Never tow another car using panty hose and duct tape. d. When sending your wife down the road with a gas can, it is impolite to ask her to bring back beer. e. Never relieve yourself from a moving vehicle when you are the driver. f. Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession. Weddings a) Ex-mother-in-laws should not be invited to weddings, unless they are the parole officers of the bride or groom. b) Rifles and handguns are not appropriate wedding gifts. c) When giving a set of towels, tires, milk-crates or hub-caps as wedding gifts, try to pick the same make or color for each piece of the set. d) If the bride is more than 8 months pregnant, it is better to have the wedding after the delivery of the baby, so that the bride can fully enjoy and participate in the wedding brawl.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Grease Stains on Suede Shoes By Pamela [1 Comment] I've had luck with removing light grease stains from suede with rubber cement. The kind of rubber cement used in school projects (comes in a brown bottle with it's own brush inside). Of course, test first on a small spot, like the on inside lining. Just brush on a small amount, let it sit for a moment to dry, then rub off the rubber cement with a soft cloth. When stain is gone and suede is dry, use suede brush to fluff up the suede again. Good luck!

A mother faces multiple charges after police said she went to a South Florida high school during dismissal and knocked the cellphone out of the hand of her daughter’s rival, while hitting the girl several times. But the Monday afternoon confrontation didn’t end there, police said in an arrest report for Ernstlatta LaFrance, 30. When the Carol City High School student went to LaFrance’s nearby townhome to get her phone, the woman broke the teen’s middle finger and destroyed her car with an ax. LaFrance’s partner, Erlisa Evans, 28, stepped outside the home and fired a gun into the air three times, according to an arrest report. She’s now facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and firing a gun into the air. The Miami Herald reports the incident was sparked by an earlier fight between LaFrance’s daughter and a group of girls at the Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition. LaFrance also posted a video of the fight on Facebook, warning “those messing with her daughter to be aware,” the report said. “The defendant also bragged on Facebook telling the victim that suffering two black eyes was not the end and she would use a gun,” the officer wrote in the arrest report. LaFrance now faces a number of charges including strong- armed robbery, child abuse and aggravated battery and is being held on a $38,000 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Darrel Re: ID theft announcement site Dear Webby Is there any site i can go to that will tell me if I've been a victim of identity theft? thanks for all your help and humor. darrell Dear Darrel No, there is no such site.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tillman Freeman III, 30, Fayetteville, North Carolina North Carolina man arrested for killing newborn and toddler daughters: BLM BLM A Fayetteville, North Carolina, mother who had just given birth to a baby girl should have been celebrating her new arrival. Instead, she was frantically trying to find out where her daughter was. Candice Freeman's four-day-old baby, Genesis Freeman, was missing along with her two-year-old sister, Serenity Freeman. The mother went to a doctor's appointment and came home to find her children were gone. She had left them with their father, Tillman Freeman, who was also gone, according to The New York Daily News. Candice Freeman called the police to report her missing children and a search ensued. Tillman was located after employees at a doctor's office in a neighboring town contacted police to “report a man acting suspiciously outside the building.” As ABC7 reports, Tillman was arrested at the scene. He refused to tell police where his daughters were once he was in custody. Tillman was charged with two counts of child neglect and child abuse; but that was just the beginning of the charges the man would come to face. Authorities later found Genesis and Serena's bodies in the woods, in his car. They were both stabbed to death. The reason the children were killed allegedly stems from their father's jealousy. According to WTKR, Tillman believed his wife was cheating on him. According to The Fayetteville Observer, Tillman already has a long rap sheet— he has served time in prison for robbery, assault, and burglary. He was also previously placed on probation for drug and theft charges. Tillman has now been charged with two counts of first degree murder for killing his four-day-old and two-year-old children. He is being held without bail. As for Candice Freeman, she is currently recovering in the hospital. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Terry Re: Blacklist or filters?

A young ensign had nearly completed his first overseas tour of sea duty when he was given an opportunity to display his ability at getting the ship under way. With a stream of crisp commands, he had the decks buzzing with men and soon, the ship had left port and was streaming out of the channel. The ensign's efficiency has been remarkable. In fact, the deck was abuzz with talk that he had set a new record for getting a destroyer under way. The ensign glowed at his accomplishment and was not all surprised when another seaman approached him with a message from the captain. He was, however, a bit surprised to find that it was a radio message, and he was even more surprised when he read, "My personal congratulations upon completing your underway preparation exercise according to the book and with amazing speed. In your haste, however, you have overlooked one of the rules: To ensure that you won't be courtmartialled and hanged for stealing a ship, make sure the Captain is aboard before getting under way."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Basil Eleby, 39, Atlanta, Georgia Basil Eleby Charged With First-Degree Arson in Atlanta blaze The man accused of starting a massive fire that collapsed a crucial stretch of highway north of downtown Atlanta has been charged with arson. Basil Eleby, 39, was in court Saturday to face charges of first-degree arson and first-degree criminal damage to property in connection with the Thursday blaze, which caused an elevated portion of Interstate 85 to crumble. Eleby Has an Extensive Criminal History & Was Previously Arrested 19 Times Eleby, who remains in Fulton County Jail on a $200,000 bond, was arrested Friday along with Sophia Bruner and Barry Thomas, both of whom were charged with criminal trespass. "We believe they were together when the fire was set and Eleby is the one who set the fire," Jay Florence, deputy commissioner of the state Department of Insurance, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Investigators believe the trio may be homeless. The inferno broke out during rush hour Thursday, quickly devouring construction materials that had been stored underneath the overpass. At around 7 p.m. ET, the bridge gave way in a flaming heap that spewed thick, black smoke that could be seen from miles away. Russell R. McMurry, the commissioner of the Georgia Department of Transportation, said Friday the fire was started in an area used as a storage location for "surplus construction materials," such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) piping. McMurry said it would take several months to rebuild. "That is no small feat," he told reporters Friday, "but we're up to the challenge." The U.S. Department of Transportation has released $10 million in emergency release funds to the state to kick- start the rebuilding process. No one was injured in the bridge collapse, authorities said Friday. But the dramatic incident snarled traffic around one of the busiest stretches of roadway in America, and Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency for Fulton County. "This is about as serious a transportation crisis as we can imagine," Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said late Thursday as commuters scrambled to find new routes home. Officials have said more than 225,000 vehicles pass through the affected area on an average weekday. Authorities do not know how or why Eleby started the fire. Florence said details would be released as the investigation goes forward. Those overpasses are a semi-sanctioned suburb for the homeless, just like in many major cities. To get the homeless out of the business and residential areas, they are tolerated under the overpasses and not hassled there. The problem is that there is no garbage pick-up and a lot of flammable material accumulates. Eleby was observed setting a big, stuffed chair on fire, and that in turn set the stacks of PVC pipes on fire. It is not known yet whether Eleby had planned to use the chair to set the piping on fire, or whether he just wanted to burn the chair. Quite likely this incident will cause many major cities to reconsider allowing their overpasses to be used as sanctuary suburbs for the urban campers to keep them out of residential and commercial areas, and if they should conduct occasional clean-up and garbage pick-up in those areas. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Elvira Re: PDF editor Dear Webby On my last machine I used to have a nice PDF editor, but that is gone with that old hard drive.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning Smoke Off Walls Kitchen fires, candles and other occurrences can leave smoke residue on your walls. This is a guide about cleaning smoke off walls. By likekinds [244 Posts, 1,143 Comments] I can tell you how I would do it. First, I would get a fan large enough to keep the area well ventilated, place it where it is most effective and turn it on. Next, I would fill a large, clean, empty spray bottle with household ammonia. Add nothing to the ammonia, certainly not bleach. Any type of cleanser added would just cause you to have to rinse and would not improve the effectiveness of the ammonia. With plenty of clean rags handy, start spraying the ammonia at the bottom most area of smoke damage. You will quickly learn just how much to spray and how many seconds to wait before wiping. It needs to stay on the wall 2-3 seconds, but not long enough to run down the wall. From this point, work your way up the wall, either rinsing your rag in clear water often or switching to an unused one. How much ammonia, time and labor is involved depends on the amount of damage. Other suggestions were to use Spray9 or Grease Lightning.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kanesha Godin, 25, Fountain, Colorado Colorado woman locked young children in bedroom at home while she was away in North Carolina A woman faces two counts of felony child abuse after she allegedly left her two young children locked in a bedroom while away on a trip. It’s unclear exactly how long Kanesha Godin, 25, was away from the two children, but police say they were malnourished when they were discovered. The Fountain Police Department says it was called to the home in the 100 block of Wellington Street on March 8 after a friend of Godin’s discovered the children weren’t being cared for. Police say Godin claimed that she had arranged for a friend to check on the children while she was gone, to feed them and to change their diapers. She claimed that she had told the friend that a neighbor would be caring for the children day and night as well, according to the police department. But the friend eventually discovered that there was no neighbor checking on the children and called police. The bedroom in which the children were locked up had no working light and the temperature on the thermostat was turned up to 90. There was feces and urine all over the place as well as soiled diapers. Officers obtained an arrest warrant for Godin on Tuesday, and she turned herself in. According to El Paso County jail records, her bond was set at $25,000 but she also has two active duty Fort Carson holds. Godin is a Fort Carson soldier. The North Carolina native has been with the military for more than seven years. According to the arrest affidavit, Godin texted the woman who was feeding the children, "The police officers in fountain r guna ask u questions. They r guna put me in jail. I need u to do me a favor. I know wat I told u as far as the kids but plz say tht u were confused about who was supposed to stay the night. Cus if u dont say tht Im guna be charged with child neglect. And Cynthia actin shady af. They are guna take the kids. Erase these messages." The neighbor named by Godin told police that she had not seen the children since December 2016. She said that Godin did not ask her to babysit the children although she had babysat them in the past and she thought they were with their father. Godin had been estranged from the father of the kids for 16 months. The neighbor showed police a text that Godin sent her on March 9, "I need u to do me a favor. I need u to vouch as my daytime sitter. They r guna take my kids and throw me in jail and I did nothing wrong. I kno it’s weird and a lot but I just want to ask u tht favor." Police did not say how old the children were or how long Godin was gone from her home. When her commanding officer found out about the kids he texted her and ordered her to get back from North Carolina with the next plane and turn herself in to the police immediately. She is due in court March 16. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rosanna Re: Investment advice via email Dear Webby I received some investment advice in the email that warned that the US dollar .......

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Easy Meatless Quiche Recipe Quiche can be an easy meal to make if a visitor turns out to be a vegetarian. By Donna [396 Posts, 403 Comments] Total Time: 1hour 15 minutes Yield: 2 pies Ingredients: 2 pre made pie crusts (the roll out ones in the refrigerated section were great size to make a nice edge and they tasted better than the frozen ones! 1 1/2 cup half and half 8 eggs 1 can of 'cream of' soup (I have used cream of celery, cream of mushroom and cream of brocolli on different occasions) 1/2 cup various cut up veggies (Celery, carrots, onions, red or green pepper, mushrooms, broccoli) 1/4 cup flour 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, swiss or your favorite) salt and pepper 1/4 tsp garlic salt (optional) 1/8 tsp tumeric or your favorite spices (optional) Note: I added some mushrooms to one of my pies and not the other and sprinkled paprika on top to differentiate the two. Feel free to add your favorite veggies and spices to your recipe for your guests tastes! Steps: Cut up your choice of veggies and dredge in flour. Add to the bottom of the uncooked pie crusts. Mix together the eggs, half and half and creamed soup. Pour on top of the floured veggies. Cover the edges of your pie crust with aluminum foil so it doesn't burn Bake in a 425 degree oven for 45 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil from the edges and bake 15 minutes longer (or until brown) Let it rest a while and it will condense somewhat. Enjoy!

After the wedding, my father came to visit a number of times, and suddenly he fell in love with my step-daughter. My father eventually married her without my authorization. As a result, my step-daughter legally became my step-mother and my father my son-in-law. My father's wife (also my step- daughter) and my step-mother, gave birth to a son who is my grandchild because I am the husband of my step-daughter's wife. This boy is also my brother, as the son of my father. All at once, my wife became a grandmother, because she is the mother of my father's wife. Therefore, it appears that I am also my wife's grandchild. A short time after these events, my wife gave birth to a son, who became my father's brother-in-law, the step-son of my father's wife, and my uncle. My son is also my step-mother's brother, and through my step-mother, my wife has become a grandmother and I have become my own grandfather.

They skype with him and meet him for sex and they can’t tell the difference. He’s atually a law professor in Brisbane, Australia. Among the victims of the sickening scam are reportedly 50 American, 20 British, and six Australian children who sent nude photos of themselves and, in several cases, managed to meet the perpetrator, who pretended to be the Beeb, for sexual encounters or photo sessions. The impersonator, a 42-year-old law professor named Gordon Douglas Chalmers, Australian media outlets report, has just been charged with 931 child-sex offenses, including rape, assault, and soliciting pedophilic pornography from 157 fans in the name of the pop star. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Betty Re: Do more pixels indicate a better camera? Dear Webby Do more pixels indicate a better digital camera? Betty Dear Edith Dear Betty No, not at all. A 2 or 3 Megapixel Canon will make MUCH better pictures than for example a 6 Megapixel HP. The biggest difference is made by the quality and size of the lenses, second is how straight the light hits the CCD inside that translates light into electricity, third is how well that analog electricity is converted to a digital picture, fourth is how deep and how large each CCD pixel is, and finally in fifth place is the number of pixels. None of that is explained in the sales hype, and very few salespeople have a clue about that. If they brag about Megapixels, take that as proof that they are totally clueless. If a salesperson tells you that the optics are made in the same factory as for example the optics for Canon professional film type cameras, and how important a large lens is, then you have found somebody who knows the stuff, and who probably is an advanced photographer. Those people will likely try to talk you into the camera that THEY want to buy for themselves. Depending on your budget, scale back from that, but in the same line. Don't hesitate getting last years model in a good line. It will produce nicer pictures than current HP or Kodak, and cost considerably less. Have FUN! DearWebby
>From Tina When my husband, Mark, took his beat-up pickup truck to our insurance agent for a pre-insurance inspection, the teen-age receptionist was sent to look over the truck. Armed with a checklist and a few simple questions, she breezed through the chore. When she asked, "What are the age and make of the vehicle?" Mark replied, "It's a '75 Ford." Apologetic about its des- perate condition, he added, "It's an old fossil." Inside, the office assistant entered the data into her computer and frowned. "Is there a problem?" asked Mark. "Mr. Evans, no matter what I try," she explained, "but the computer can't find a Ford Fossil."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Moss Growing on Bricks This is a guide about removing moss growing on bricks. Moss can make brick paths and driveways very slippery. They need to be cleaned for safety. By Sandi/Poor But Proud [561 Posts, 2,340 Comments] Go to the Dollar Tree or any other places to by cheap laundry detergent. Sprinkle it liberally on the moss and mold, and in three to five days, it will start to turn brown. At that point, you can brush it off with a stiff push broom or a strong spray nozzle. I have done this for years, and it works. Also good for soaking up oil spills in garages, and smells better than cat litter.

Then he came across a glass vase that had been broken, which could be purchased for next to nothing. The tightwad asked the store clerk to send the gift, hoping his friend would think that the vase had been broken during transit. A couple of weeks later, he received an acknowledgment for the gift. "Thanks for the vase," read the card. "It was so thoughtful of you to wrap each piece separately."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jesse Roberts, 23, Elkmont, Alabama Alabama Arrestee so loose he defecates gun into his shorts An Alabama man being booked into jail for public intoxication had a stolen handgun hidden in a certain body cavity, according to police who noticed that the defendant was walking “strangely” upon arrival at the county jail. Jesse Roberts, 23, was collared early today by cops responding to a 911 call about a prowler near a residence in Elkmont, a town outside Huntsville. Seen above, Roberts was arrested and transported to the Limestone County jail, where corrections officers took notice of his odd gait. As Roberts was being searched, an unloaded Jimenez Arms .380-caliber pistol fell from his rear end into his underwear. “I immediately considered that he defecated on himself before noticing a familiar shape in the form of a pistol in his boxers,” a jailer noted in a report, according to Sheriff Mike Blakely. Upon recovering the unloaded weapon from Roberts’s drawers, cops determined that the $100 handgun had been reported stolen out of Florence, a city 50 miles away. Along with a misdemeanor public intoxication rap, Roberts is facing charges for receiving stolen property, introducing contraband into a correctional facility, and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. Roberts is locked up in lieu of $7250 bail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Edith Re: Portrait for Resume in California Dear Webby I am pretty good with Selfies that look OK on Facebook, but they are NOT the quality I need for a resume.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Robbie Charles Watson, 55, Alachua, Florida Man drives drunk in the wrong direction of the road, urinates on himself twice After being pulled over for driving drunkenly on the wrong side of a highway, a Newberry man urinated his pants in front of a police car, Alachua Police said. Robbie Charles Watson, 55, was driving north in the southbound lanes of State Road 25 in Alachua when a police car tried to pull him over at about 12:14 a.m., according to an arrest report. He pulled over in the median before driving off to a Sunco parking lot, at 11921 NW U.S. Highway 441. An officer noticed Watson had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, according to the report. Watson had also urinated in his pants. When officers asked Watson for documents, he couldn’t follow directions and gave police the wrong documents multiple times, police said. He was unsteady and leaned against his car for support, a responding officer noted. Watson was unable to complete field sobriety exercises, according to the report. After officers placed him in front of a police car, he urinated in his pants again, according to the report. Watson refused to submit to a breathalyzer test, and a jail nurse told police he had to be taken to a hospital, police said. At about 5:50 a.m., Watson was cleared by the hospital and brought back to the Alachua County Jail, according to the report. When police asked him to sign a criminal citation, Watson refused even after officers told him refusal would be a misdemeanor.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Pressure Cooker Pea Soup By Judy Pariser S. [269 Posts, 1,925 Comments] Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 45 minutes Total Time: 55 minutes Yield: 9 cups Source: Budget Bytes Soup in 45 minutes with no standing over the stove watching! Ingredients: 1 yellow onion, diced 3 carrots, cut in thin rounds 3 ribs celery, cut in small pieces 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 lb split peas 2 Tbsp oil 1 bay leaf 1/2 Tbsp paprika 1/4 tsp thyme salt and pepper to taste 6 cups water or broth Steps: Rinse the peas in a colander. Put all ingredients in the pressure cooker. Add one bay leaf on the top. Set the cooker for 15 minutes of cooking. Let the cooker release on its own. This will take about 15 minutes. Stir the soup and taste. Adjust seasonings if necessary. You may blend, if you wish. Serve and enjoy. I usually toss a ham bone or a diced ham end piece into pea spup for traditional Canadian pea soup flavor. You can concentrate Canadian pea soup at VERY low heat until it is very thick, then ladle it into ziplock baggies sitting in cups.When they are cold, put them into the freezer. The reason for the cups is uniform sizes and not interlocking in the freezer. When frozen, you can tip the hockey pucks out of the cups. To use, just toss a puck into boiling water, and you will have pea soup in a few minutes. Just add bread, and you have a good meal. Have FUN! DearWebby

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by James Rankin, 78, Hurst, Texas Texas pastor caught with child porno A Texas pastor is claiming that child pornography images allegedly found on his computer were “to remind himself of what other people like to look at,” according to an affidavit for a search warrant. Local police disagree. “That explanation did not really pan out for us,” police Sgt. Lonnie Brazzel told The Huffington Post. Authorities on Friday seized computers, digital storage devices and cameras belonging to 78-year-old James Rankin, of Hurst, Texas. Rankin was arrested after employees at a Best Buy alerted police to suspected child pornography allegedly found Thursday on an Apple iMac that Hurst brought in for repair. When investigators examined the computer, they allegedly found about 50 images of nude children, some of which they described as having a “‘home-made’ quality.” Rankin told police he’d discovered the images seven or eight years ago “and saved these images because he had researched a possible lesson involving Cupid, love, and human trafficking,” according to the search affidavit. However, authorities say some of the images have dates as recent as February associated with them. “This is now a matter of whether this a downloaded collection or photos he’s taken,” Brazzel said. A forensic analysis of the images is pending. At the time of his arrest, Rankin told police he was an associate pastor at Bellevue Baptist Church in Hurst. A now- defunct page on the church’s website states that Rankin is a married father of two who served in churches in Tennessee, Fort Worth and Amarillo. He also served as a chaplain in the U.S. Army. The church did not respond to a request for comment. Rankin also allegedly said the photos served as a reminder of “how bad human trafficking is.” However, it appears his concern didn’t motivate him to take any further action. Court documents do not indicate that Rankin ever notified authorities or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children of the existence of the alleged child porn images, or the website from which he allegedly downloaded them. Rankin, who faces a charge of possession of child pornography, is jailed in lieu of $5,000 bond. The forensic analysis of the alleged evidence is expected to take five to six weeks, Brazzel said. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Olaf Re: Hard to read font colors Dear Webby Some people use very difficult to read font colors, like for example silver on white, or dark blue on black.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Italian Lentil and Swiss Chard Soup Recipe By Jess [166 Posts, 971 Comments] Total Time: approximately 2 hours Yield: 8 Source: I adapted my friend Lisa's basic recipe for lentils. Ingredients: 1 Tbsp olive oil 2 cups lentils 1 onion, chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 stalks celery, finely chopped 1 cup mushrooms, chopped 2 carrots, chopped 1 cup spaghetti sauce or 1 can diced tomatoes 1 qt vegetable broth salt, pepper and Italian seasoning to taste 1 bunch Swiss chard, chopped This recipe used what I had on hand. You could substitute or leave out pretty much any of these ingredients to suit your family's taste. I often make a similar soup with noodles instead of lentils and call it Spaghetti Soup. Steps: Heat olive oil in a heavy bottomed pot, over medium heat. Add onions, then garlic. Cook until slightly softened. Add lentils and sauté for a couple of minutes. Add celery and stir, then add mushrooms after a minute or two, then carrots. Allow to cook off the excess moisture for a few minutes. Add in spaghetti sauce, vegetable broth and seasonings. Increase heat to bring soup to just a boil, then turn to low and simmer until lentils are cooked. I cooked my soup for about two hours on low but I'm sure it would have been ready sooner. Add more water to give the soup the right consistency. Just before serving, check seasonings and make adjustments as necessary. Add Swiss chard and cook for about 5 more minutes before serving. Cheese would have been a wonderful garnish to this soup. I served it with a green salad but it would have been nice to have bread too.

>From Bill 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.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Wayne Douglas Brunet, in jail in Texas now. Pilot Busted trying to haul 230 Pounds of Pot from Oregon to Texas A pilot, who landed his plane in Llano Monday, was arrested for allegedly attempting to distribute more than 200 pounds of hydroponic marijuana. According to the United States Department of Justice, Wayne Douglas Brunet, 64, was taken into custody by the Department of Public Safety. Homeland Security Investigators were tipped off to suspicious activity by Brunet Sunday night as he attempted to land his aircraft at an unmanned airport in Bulverde, Texas. Soon after, authorities began tracking Brunet's plane. According to an arrest affidavit, they noticed in his flight from Medford, Oregon to Texas he had only stopped once to refuel in Arizona. When Brunet landed for the second time at the unmanned Bulverde airport, he didn't stay for long. The affidavit states that he departed again after noticing authorities waiting for him on the ground. Officials said Brunet flew to the Llano Municipal airport where he landed at midnight. Brunet then attempted to flee the area but was quickly caught by DPS. Authorities said they recovered 15 duffle bags filled with vacuum-sealed packages of marijuana along with an estimated amount of $6,000 in cash. If convicted, Brunet faces between five and 40 years in federal prison. Officials said he is scheduled to appear at a detention hearing in Austin Thursday at 2:15 p.m. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ron Re: Power bar style UPS Dear Webby How good are those power bar style UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supplies) ?

I just came across this 2005 Bonehead award: BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Gregory Alston, 20 of Baltimore, Maryland Carjacker Reports 'His' Car Stolen BALTIMORE - A suspect takes a car at gunpoint and drives it around for two weeks before the owner spots the car and has it towed. The thief then calls police to report "his" car stolen. Those events seemed so improbable that Baltimore police detective Gregory Jenkins felt compelled to end his report of the incident with the admonition, "Again, this really happened." "Another detective told me, 'Greg, you had to make this up,'" the detective told The (Baltimore) Sun. Police charged Gregory Alston, 20, Tuesday with armed robbery, possession of a stolen car and a handgun violation. Police say the carjacking occurred about 10:30 p.m. on April 20 when two women reported that a man armed with a silver handgun and wearing a black bandanna approached them while they were parked on a street in northeast Baltimore. The women said the gunman ordered them out of their car and sped off. Tuesday, one of the women spotted the stolen car in front of an apartment building about a half-mile from where it had been taken. She called police who towed it to the department's Northeast District station. Two hours later, a man called police and reported the car stolen. Officers brought the man back to the station for questioning. At first, police said, he insisted he had bought the car for $1,700 on March 11. Eventually, he confessed to the robbery.

Thanks to Linda for this one: My husband is wonderful with our baby daughter, but often he turns to me for advice. Recently, I was in the shower when he poked his head in to ask, "What should I feed Lily for lunch?" "That's up to you," I replied. "There's all kinds of food. Why don't you pretend I'm not at home?" A few minutes later, my cell phone rang. I answered it to hear my husband asking, "Yeah, hi, Honey. Uh..what should I feed Lily for lunch?"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dr. Christina Whitaker, 42, Gretchen Alldredge, 41, Coldwater, Florida Florida doctor and probationer charged with prescription fraud, again. Coldwater doctor Christina Whitaker, 42, was charged with eight felony drug charges on a warrant sought after a Coldwater Police investigation. Branch County District Court Judge Brent Weigle told her Friday morning in a video arraignment her bond would be $200,000 because of future charges. "There will be a significant number of similar complaints," said Coldwater Police Officer Jessica Elsaidi. Arrested with Whitaker was Gretchen Alldredge, 41, also charged in the scheme to obtain Adderall for Whitaker, who is addicted to the drug, according to the complaint. Elsaidi began her investigation following the arrest of Whitaker, after she obtained three pills of Vyvanse from an undercover informant in Hillsdale County. She was stopped in Branch County, and the drugs were located. Elsaidi went to the Michigan Automated Prescription System to find prescriptions for Adderall that Whitaker had written to other patients. The officer then went to Alldredge, who is on felony probation for possession of meth. The police report indicated that Alldredge admitted that she got the prescriptions for Whitaker. Whitaker paid her for them and gave Alldredge prescriptions for the painkiller Tramadol, Alldredge's drug of choice, in return. The drugs were obtained four times between August and October of 2016. Alldredge is charged with four counts of delivery of the Adderall. Whitaker is charged with conspiracy to obtain the drug. The charges are seven-year felonies. Both are charged with four counts of obtaining prescriptions by fraud, four year felonies. Alldredge is being held under a $100,000 bond. Preliminary proceedings are set for both April 4 and April 11. In 2007, Dr. Whitaker pleaded guilty to obtaining Adderall by fraud. Then in court, she said she had been told to use Adderall in medical school to help with her patient rapport. She said she turned to it again in a residency program and after she came to Coldwater. Adderall is a synthetic amphetamine. In January 2015, Aldredge was charged with possession of meth, after items were found with residue on them in her South Centennial Road home when her name appeared on pseudoephedrine purchase logs and police went to her home to talk with her. In April 2015, Alldredge was sentenced to 10 months jail and two years probation. A violation of probation is pending in Branch County Circuit Court. Both knew what to expect when caught. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: Not getting subscription at AOL Dear Webby I have not received your Humor site in over two months.

Lets take a trip or two or three......
A construction boss in Boston was interviewing men when along came a guy named Vinny from New York. I'm not hiring any wise-ass New Yorker, the foreman thought, so he made up a test hoping that Vinny wouldn't be able to answer the questions, and he'd be able to refuse him the job without getting into a dispute. "Here's your first question," the foreman said. "Without using numbers, represent the number 9." "Widout numbiz?" Vinny says. "Dat's easy," and he proceeds to draw 3 trees. "What's this?" the boss asks. The New Yorker replies, "Ain't you got no brains? Tree 'n Tree 'n Tree makes nine. Faghedaboutit......" "Fair enough," says the Boss. "Here's your second question. Use the same rules, but this time use the number 99." Vinny stares into space for a minute, then picks up the picture he has drawn and makes a smudge on each tree. "Dare ya go, Buddy." The Boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you get that to represent 99?" Vinny says "Each a da tree's is dirty now! So it's dirty tree 'n dirty tree' n dirty tree-dat's 99". The Boss is getting worried he's going to have to hire the New Yorker, so he says, "All right, last question. Same rules but this time use 100." Vinny stares into space again, then picks up the picture once again, makes a little mark at the base of each tree and says, "Dare ya go, Mac, a hunnert." The Boss looks at the picture for a moment and says, "You must be nuts if you think that represents 100!" New York Vinny leans forward and points to the marks at the base of the trees. "A little doggie comes along and takes a crap on each a dem trees, so now ya got dirty tree an' a turd, dirty tree an' a turd, dirty tree an' a turd - which makes one hundred. Bada boom, bada bing.

Arrested with Whitaker was Gretchen Alldredge, 41, also charged in the scheme to obtain Adderall for Whitaker, who is addicted to the drug, according to the complaint. Elsaidi began her investigation following the arrest of Whitaker, after she obtained three pills of Vyvanse from an undercover informant in Hillsdale County. She was stopped in Branch County, and the drugs were located. Elsaidi went to the Michigan Automated Prescription System to find prescriptions for Adderall that Whitaker had written to other patients. The officer then went to Alldredge, who is on felony probation for possession of meth. The police report indicated that Alldredge admitted that she got the prescriptions for Whitaker. Whitaker paid her for them and gave Alldredge prescriptions for the painkiller Tramadol, Alldredge's drug of choice, in return. The drugs were obtained four times between August and October of 2016. Alldredge is charged with four counts of delivery of the Adderall. Whitaker is charged with conspiracy to obtain the drug. The charges are seven-year felonies. Both are charged with four counts of obtaining prescriptions by fraud, four year felonies. Alldredge is being held under a $100,000 bond. Preliminary proceedings are set for both April 4 and April 11. In 2007, Dr. Whitaker pleaded guilty to obtaining Adderall by fraud. Then in court, she said she had been told to use Adderall in medical school to help with her patient rapport. She said she turned to it again in a residency program and after she came to Coldwater. Adderall is a synthetic amphetamine. In January 2015, Aldredge was charged with possession of meth, after items were found with residue on them in her South Centennial Road home when her name appeared on pseudoephedrine purchase logs and police went to her home to talk with her. In April 2015, Alldredge was sentenced to 10 months jail and two years probation. A violation of probation is pending in Branch County Circuit Court. Both knew what to expect when caught. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: Not getting subscription at AOL Dear Webby I have not received your Humor site in over two months.

A little old lady is sitting on a bench in Miami Beach. A man walks over and sits down on the other end of the bench. After a few moments, the woman asks, "Are you a stranger here?" He replies, "I used to live here years ago." "So, where were you all these years?" "In prison," he says. "For what did they put you in prison?" He looks at her, and very quietly says, "I killed my wife." "Oh," says the woman. "So you're single..."

A construction boss in Boston was interviewing men when along came a guy named Vinny from New York. I'm not hiring any wise-ass New Yorker, the foreman thought, so he made up a test hoping that Vinny wouldn't be able to answer the questions, and he'd be able to refuse him the job without getting into a dispute. "Here's your first question," the foreman said. "Without using numbers, represent the number 9." "Widout numbiz?" Vinny says. "Dat's easy," and he proceeds to draw 3 trees. "What's this?" the boss asks. The New Yorker replies, "Ain't you got no brains? Tree 'n Tree 'n Tree makes nine. Faghedaboutit......" "Fair enough," says the Boss. "Here's your second question. Use the same rules, but this time use the number 99." Vinny stares into space for a minute, then picks up the picture he has drawn and makes a smudge on each tree. "Dare ya go, Buddy." The Boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you get that to represent 99?" Vinny says "Each a da tree's is dirty now! So it's dirty tree 'n dirty tree' n dirty tree-dat's 99". The Boss is getting worried he's going to have to hire the New Yorker, so he says, "All right, last question. Same rules but this time use 100." Vinny stares into space again, then picks up the picture once again, makes a little mark at the base of each tree and says, "Dare ya go, Mac, a hunnert." The Boss looks at the picture for a moment and says, "You must be nuts if you think that represents 100!" New York Vinny leans forward and points to the marks at the base of the trees. "A little doggie comes along and takes a crap on each a dem trees, so now ya got dirty tree an' a turd, dirty tree an' a turd, dirty tree an' a turd - which makes one hundred. Bada boom, bada bing.

What is the best way to do it? Roger /i> Dear Roger With an upright case that is easier than you think. The bottom in it is usually free, with nothing in the way. Everything is attached to the side wall opposite to the wall, that opens. Take a drill with a small, 1/8" drill bit and drill a few holes into the bottom. Then line up the computer, so that you have full access to the back, where everything is plugged in and so that all cables can be plugged in. That might limit the locations! Once the location is satisfactory, use sheet-metal screws and screw the machine to the floor. They will widen the hole as necesary. Those screws are available with all kinds of heads, including tamper-proof. Have FUN! DearWebby

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Abbie Maldonado, 30, Deltona, Floriduh Deltona woman arrested after toddler shoots out car window at school A 30-year-old Deltona woman was arrested Monday afternoon after a 3-year-old boy grabbed her loaded gun and shot out the window of a car parked at a church school, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said. Abbie Maldonado had the toddler in the car with her when she drove to the Good Shepherd Academy on Howland Boulevard to pick up her son from school shortly before 3:45 p.m., Sheriff's Office spokesman Gary Davidson said. "Maldonado got out to walk around and left the boy unsecured in the back of the vehicle with the rear passenger door propped open so she could keep an eye on the child," Davidson said. Maldonado told investigators she was walking in the parking lot with some other parents when she heard a loud bang, deputies said. She said she didn't immediately realize it was gunfire. "She went to the vehicle to check on the child and then walked around the parking lot some more," Davidson said. "Maldonado then returned to the vehicle and took the child into the school to go to the bathroom, still not realizing anything was wrong." When Maldonado returned to her car, she said she heard glass crackling and noticed the front driver’s side window shattered, Davidson said. Deputies said Maldonado walked toward the front of the church to see if anyone had seen someone by her vehicle, and upon returning to the vehicle, she noticed that her loaded gun wasn’t in the driver’s side door pocket where she had left it. "It was on the front seat," Davidson said. "Maldonado told deputies that she normally keeps the gun locked in the trunk." Maldonado received a valid concealed-carry weapon permit from the state last month, deputies said. Maldonado's boyfriend picked up the children, and she was arrested and charged with child neglect. She was freed from jail after paying bail. No one was injured in the incident. "I'm like shaking right now to think that... just a child to grab it. Thank God he didn't get hurt," said parent Mary Justino. The Department of Children and Families told Channel 9's Mike Springer that it's investigating the incident. ------------- There are book size gun safes with fingerprint recognition available, and have been for a long time. I bought one for my dad about 15 years ago. You just stick a finger into a hole on it, it checks the fingerprint, and if it recognizes the finger, it unlocks. Simple, easy, and costs less than a handgun. With kids on the loose it is indeed criminal to leave loaded guns within reach of the kids. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ann S Re: Is it OK to delete all downloads? Dear Webby Is it okay to delete all the files I downloaded??? Thanks Ann S /i> Dear Ann That is like asking if ALL women or all men are bad. Some are good and worth keeping. If you know that all files you downloaded are in the download directory, and they are all just uTube and similar stuff, that keep coming around again anyway, yes, then it would be safe to delete them all. You might have some program downloads in there too. Those you can always get again, if you ever need them. Just browse that folder and sort by type to get all pictures together, then check those. There might be a few valuable keepers in there. Also check the folders, that you have set as the default folders for email attachments and embedded files. If some of your friends use Incredimail, then those will be polluted with all the little butterflies and flowers and stuff attached to Incredimail. There could be many thousands unless you weed out that stuff occasionally. Also browse the directory where Skype saves pictures and transfers.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Best Ever Lemon-Coconut Squares By Jackie H. [228 Posts, 108 Comments] A sweet coconut twist on the ever popular lemon squares. Total Time: 20 minutes prep time 50 minutes cooking time Yield: Serves 24 Source: A little taken from a few recipes, the coconut and confectioners topping was my idea. Something different! Ingredients: 2 cups all purpose flour 1 cup confectioners' sugar 1 cup melted butter 4 eggs, beaten with mixer 2 cups white sugar 1 tsp baking powder pinch salt 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 5/8 cup Real Lemon juice 1/4 cup sifting confectioners' sugar 1/3 cup flaked coconut Steps: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease (I spray oil) and flour a 9x13 inch pan. In a medium bowl, stir together 2 cups of flour and 1 cup confectioners' sugar. Blend in melted butter. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden. In a large bowl, beat eggs with mixer until light. Combine the white sugar, baking powder, salt, and 1/4 cup of flour so there will be no flour lumps. Stir the sugar mixture into the eggs. Finally, stir in the lemon juice. Pour over the prepared crust and return to the oven. Bake for an additional 30-40 minutes or until bars are set. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares. Using a sifter, sift accross the squares with a light coating of confectioners' sugar and scatter a light coating of flake coconut. Then put in the broiler for 3-5 minutes, just to toast the coconut. Watch it carefully! Enjoy!

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tyler HaguewoodTyler Haguewood, 33, Hillsboro, Oregon Oregon man arrested for stealing street sweeper An Oregon man did not make a clean getaway early Sunday after stealing a street sweeper and leading police on a 10- mile chase. According to cops, Tyler Haguewood, 33, jumped into the street sweeper around 3:45 AM after the driver, a private contractor, exited the running vehicle to “use a handheld blower in order to clean an area where the street-sweeper could not reach.” Haguewood then drove off in the Isuzu street sweeper. Upon learning of the theft, cops in Hillsboro, a city 20 miles outside Portland, quickly located the vehicle on the deserted pre-dawn streets. “Officers activated their overhead emergency lights. The street-sweeper failed to yield,” cops say. For 10 miles, officers pursued the street sweeper, which topped out at 65 mph. The chase ended after Haguewood drove over spike strips placed in the roadway by Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies. Pictured above, Haguewood was taken into custody without incident and charged with multiple counts, including auto theft and attempting to elude police. He is also facing a parole violation charge in connection with a prior conviction for aggravated harassment. Haguewood is being held in the Washington County jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Vera Re: Cant copy from Windows calculator Dear Webby How come I can't copy from the calculator in Windows by using the mouse ? Vera /i> Dear Vera The Windows calculator always had that shortcoming, even in Windows 3.0 because basically it is a DOS program. Just treat it like a DOS program and imagine you had no mouse. When done calculating, type ALT E C Then with ALT TAB jump back to the program you were using before using the calculator. CTRL V pastes the result that you have copied from the calculator. It is actually a lot faster than taking a hand off the keyboard and mousing around. There are a number of calculator programs available that let you copy with the mouse, however, my recommendation is to use a spreadsheet like Calc or Excel, whether you are a mouse addict or prefer hot-keys. With a spreadsheet you see all your entries, you can correct typos no matter how far back they are, do sorting, searching, show numbers below or above a limit that you set in a different color, and thousands of other tricks. I normally have a spreadsheet open and narrowed to about 1/10 of the screen on the left side, and I use that as a calculator, scratch-pad and even calculating calendar. You really get spoiled once you get comfortable with spreadsheets. Have FUN! DearWebby

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."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Charles A. Simpson, 25, Davenport, Iowa Man busted after receiving 10 pounds of marijuana in the mail A 25-year-old Davenport man is facing charges of peddling marijuana after his brother mailed him 10 pounds of the drug to sell locally, Davenport police said. The marijuana was mailed through the U.S. Postal Service. Postal inspectors teamed with Davenport police on the case. Charles A. Simpson, of 2216 Grand Ave., is charged with one count each of possession with the intent to deliver less than 50 kilograms of marijuana, conspiracy to possess and deliver less than 50 kilograms of marijuana, and failure to affix an Iowa drug tax stamp. Naughty! Each of the charges is a Class D felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of up to five years. According to the arrest affidavit filed by a member of the Davenport Police Department’s Tactical Operations Bureau, Devin Simpson mailed 10 pounds of marijuana through the U.S. Postal Service to his brother, Charles Simpson. The deal was that Charles Simpson would sell the marijuana to multiple customers. For every pound of marijuana Charles Simpson sold Devin Simpson would reward him with $100 and free marijuana. Since the dope was not discovered where it was sent, most likely Charles had mentioned the expected arrival within earshot of a narc. Charles Simpson was arrested Monday. He was released from the Scott County Jail after posting 10 percent of a $5,000 bond through a bonding company. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Changing icons on shortcuts does not work Dear Webby This is not a major problem, just an annoyance.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Save Eggshells for Planting Tomatoes By Litter Gitter [204 Posts, 663 Comments] To prevent blossom rot, I put a handful of egg shells in the hole with the tomato plant when setting them. This gives the tomatoes calcium and it works. For 2 dozen tomato plants, I use 2 gallons of crushed egg shells. It takes me a year to save up that many. Whenever I use eggs, I rinse the sticky stuff out of the shells and set them on a paper towel to drain. After they dry, they are ready to crush and add to the bag. I usually let them build up in the bag and then put them in a bowl and crush with my hands and fingers. (This also buffs my rough skin and makes it smooth.) I store the bag in the pantry until spring planting time. If you want to try this, you need to start saving your egg shells. In the 50's, when having the reddest and brightest Geraniums in the outside window boxes was of vital importance in the village, Grandma used to send me around the neighborhood collecting egg shells. I was of course also tasked with scooping "road apples" donated by the still fairly frequent horses. She ground the egg shells with the big cast iron hand crank grinder and then the egg shells and the road apples were put into a barrel and "steeped" until spring. That was her secret fertilizer for her prize winning Geraniums.
Cleaning the St. Louis Arch
____________________________________________________ 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?" ___________________________________________________

Murphy came home drunk as a skunk for the third night in a row. Judi, his wife, dragged him to the window and pointed out to the blazing lights of the big distillery in the distance. "Do you see how big it is?" she thundered. "They can always make it faster than you can drink it!" "Maybe so, [hic]," he burped, "but I've got 'em working nights!"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by juan Bowers, 18, Tynerick Turner, 17, and a 16-year-old boy Nashville, Tennessee Nashville teens arrested for shooting at pizza shop A trio of Tennessee teenagers opened fire on a Nashville food market after a clerk gave them a pizza with the wrong toppings, according to police who arrested the gunmen on an assortment of felony charges. The shooting Tuesday afternoon at the DB Todd market was witnessed by an undercover detective who was conducting surveillance in the area. The suspects left the scene in a stolen Honda Accord, which the detective tailed as he summoned backup officers. Police subsequently arrested Djuan Bowers, 18, Tynerick Turner, 17, and a 16-year-old boy. According to court records, Bowers was carrying a loaded Smith & Wesson pistol when apprehended, while two other handguns--a stolen .45 caliber Glock and a .40 caliber Beretta--were found inside the vehicle. While being interviewed by officers, one of the defendants revealed that the market was fired upon due to a botched pizza order, police say. Nobody was injured by the gunfire. The teenagers are facing multiple counts of aggravated assault, weapons possession, and auto theft. Since his alleged accomplices are underage, Bowers was also charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor. Bowers (seen above left) and Turner were also charged with the gunpoint robbery last month of a man who turned over $900 during the stick-up. Bowers is being held in the Davidson County jail in lieu of $50,000. Turner and the 16-year-old defendant have been charged in juvenile court. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Susan Re: Keyboard stickers Dear Webby I was overjoyed to find Arabic/English and Farsi/English stickers for my desktop and laptop keyboards because I hadn't memorized the corresponding letters on my "plain" English keyboard. I noticed on Amazon that there are English replacement stickers as well (I saw one set for $6.99) which seemed like less hassle and less potential for keyboard damage than painting your own or gluing letters on paper to the keycaps. They go on easily, come off easily, and are cheaper to replace than a keyboard. I had tried using the professional fine point white marker you mentioned a few years ago, but was not successful so the key cap stickers are a fast and cost-effective solution!

After a hardy Arkansas rainstorm filled all the potholes in the back alley, a young mother watched her two little boys playing in a water puddle through her kitchen window. The older of the two, a five year old lad, grabbed his sibling by the back of the head and shoved his face into the water hole. As the younger boy recovered and stood laughing and dripping, the mother ran to the back yard in a panic. "Why on Earth did you do that to your little brother?" she screamed as she shook the older boy in anger. "We were just playing 'church,' Mommy" He said. "I was baptizing him like the preacher did in church last Sunday. I said, "I now baptize you in the name of the father, the son, and in-da-hole-he-goes!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Pulling Tissues from a Roll By joanWZ [47 Posts, 9 Comments] If you don't have a tissue holder in your office or inside a car and want to avoid pulling it in a messy way. Actually it's very simple to do. Pulling tissue from the middle of a roll of toilet paper. Removing the hard middle roll from toilet paper. First, do not pull the tissue from the cellophane because you don't have a tissue holder, right? Can you see in the middle of the tissue? There is a round, hard, cardboard at the center. So, here's the idea, slowly pull that round, hard cardboard at the center, just pull it outside the tissue. After pulling it, you can see the end cut of the tissue and that's the one you will pull out every time you get your tissue. And you can cover it back with the cellophane. Clean, simple and not messy at all. If you ever had a smoker in your house, chances are that there are some empty tobacco tins under some work bench. By sheer coincidence ;-) a roll of TP just fits inside. Many fine outhouses and camp site biffys have a screw top lid tobacco tin holding a roll of nice and dry toilet paper.

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?"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Christine Maier, 31, Okeechobee, Florida Florida woman arrested after throwing syringes into backseat with child during traffic stop Police officers in Florida said they found three hypodermic needles within arms reach of a toddler Tuesday afternoon during a traffic stop. When a woman in the vehicle was asked how this could happen, she said she panicked when she saw the patrol cars emergency lights and threw the needles in the backseat, according to a Boca Raton police report. Christine Maier, 31, of Okeechobee, told the officer it was a "panicked, stupid, mistake," police said. She remained in the Palm Beach County Jail early Thursday on $3,000 bail on charges of child neglect and possession of drug equipment. On Tuesday afternoon, police noticed a Jeep parked in a handicapped parking spot at the Marathon gas station on Glades Road just east of Town Center at Boca Raton. After a while, another vehicle parked next to it, and a woman, later identified as Maier, walked out of the passenger side of the Jeep. Maier met with a man who was inside the other car, and he handed her a plastic baggie, according to the report. After the two left, the Boca Raton officer noticed the Jeep did not make a full stop at a stop sign and a brake light was out, so the officer pulled the vehicle over. The officer noted he saw Maier make movements with her head and hands as he pulled the Jeep over. The officer wrote when he walked up to the car, he noticed a toddler whose face had a fresh cut on it in the backseat without a car seat. The relationship between the woman and the child is redacted from the report. After the officer took the information from the man driving the Jeep, he said he saw Maier make what appeared to be a "drug transaction" at the gas station and asked if he could search the vehicle. After the man agreed, the officer found three hypodermic needles within arm’s reach of the toddler. A sunglasses case in the front passenger side of the car where Maier was sitting contained two more needles and "a white crystal-like residue." The officer noted one of the needles "had a metal screw in place of a plastic plunger." The officer read the man and Maier their rights. Then the man began yelling at Maier after he saw the needles. Maier told officers she was just getting them for a friend so "he could use them to inject methamphetamines." When asked about the cut on the toddler’s nose, she said the child had fallen the day before. The driver told officers he had no idea about the needles and the only reason he drove Maier from Okeechobee to Boca Raton was because he had just gotten out of jail, and "it’s been a while since I’ve had a girl.” The driver does not appear to have been arrested, according to jail records. The child is in the care of the Florida Department of Children and Families, according to the report. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Patti Re: Laptop keyboard lettering Dear Webby The white lettering on my laptop keyboard is coming off. Is there a way to replace it???? Patti /i> Dear Patti You can try Lettraset and then seal it with a drop of marine spar varnish or clear nail polish. Lettraset is getting hard to find, but I have seen clones of it at the Dollar Store. You could even cut the letters out from a magazine or thin ad flyer, and glue them on with regular white glue. Don't use Crazy Glue. It will stick before you can line up the letter correctly. When the glue is good and dry, you can seal the letter with a drop of clear nail polish. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Growing Vegetables in an Apartment By guest (Guest Post) Best Answer I have a nice yard but prefer to grow my vegetables on the deck since the deer can't get up there. You can grow snow peas in containers if you give them something to climb on and the leaf lettuces work well. These are spring veggies. When they're done, you can plant something else like green beans in the same containers. Tomatoes work well in pickle buckets as long as they have some support (circular cages will work). You will have to water the tomatoes often. Also, wash out your egg shells and sprinkle them on the soil. They give the tomatoes their needed calcium and help to prevent blossom end rot. You can even grow melons with the roots in containers and the fruit resting on the deck.

Would that mean the Supreme court could overrule Obama`s

It doesn't really mean much since 23 countries won't allow
their nationals to be sent back there if caught committing
crimes and deported. 
Maybe the deportees belonging to those 23 countries would
have to be sent to Guatanamo Bay in Cuba?

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Drug deal went down in front of 3 officers in western Wisconsin A Drug deal went down in front of 3 officers in western Wisconsin gas station just paces away from Pierce County’s law enforcement center might not be the most inconspicuous place for a drug deal, but prosecutors allege that’s just what a trio of teens did last week. The young men were flanked by officers — including a nine- year veteran of the St. Croix Valley Drug Task Force pumping gas into his squad car — who watched them make the sale of a quarter-pound of marijuana on March 9, according to charges filed in the case. Investigation of the case led investigators to Plum City High School, where a student there allegedly admitted to being behind the sale. The Pierce County Attorney’s Office charged Ellsworth resident Desmond T. Trok, 18; Knapp resident Matthew P. Jones, 18; and Menomonie resident Trace Schofield, 17, with delivering THC, a felony. No charges had yet been filed against the Plum City student and it wasn’t clear Monday if the case received a juvenile referral. Pierce County sheriff’s investigator Marty Shepler was pumping gas into his squad car at 11:55 a.m. when he saw what looked like a drug deal in the nearby parking lot. He watched a brown vehicle back into a parking stall next to a white vehicle. On the other side of the brown vehicle was a Department of Natural Resources warden’s patrol truck. The warden happened to be walking out of the neighboring Pierce County Sheriff’s Office with another deputy during the drug deal. They called it in to dispatchers, who seconds later were alerted by Shepler of the same thing. Shepler and the deputy, Robbie Jaeger, connected over their radios and formulated a plan to conduct a traffic stop on the two vehicles. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Chris Re: Computer keeps shutting down Dear Webby My computer is about 7 years old and running Windows 7. Lately, it has been shutting itself down and restarting, sometimes several tiems a day. What could be causing this problem and is there any way I can correct it? Thank you so much for your advice and help. Chris /i> Dear Chris Most likely your computer is just full of dust bunnies, and overheating. Take the side cover off, vacuum it out with the couch crevice tool, and clean all the heat sinks with Q-tips and Windex or vinegar. Look closely at the fans. If they are dirty, clean them too. Peek into the welded shut box of the power supply. The fan in there might need cleaning too. Don`t try to open that box, just poke in there with Q-tips. After that your machine will run nice and cool and not shut down when it gets too hot. If your computer is sitting on the floor sucking up all the cruising dust bunnies, put it up on blocks! Bricks look nice and traditional, but even some small 2x4 pieces will raise it above the dust bunny freeway. There used to be a shut-down virus many years ago, but if you have Malwarebytes, that would have been killed long ago. Let me know if the cleaning fixed the problem. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Healthy Onion Rings By Terri If you love onion rings but are looking for a healthier option, then try these baked onion rings. Ingredients: non-stick cooking spray 1 large onion 1 1/4 cups Italian style bread crumbs 1/2 tsp. minced fresh garlic 1 cup low fat milk 1 cup all purpose flour 3 large egg whites, beaten slightly Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 2 large cookie sheets with nonstick spray. Cut onion into 1/2 inch thick slices. Separate slices into rings. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and garlic. Set aside. Place milk, flour, and egg whites into 3 separate small bowls. Dip each onion ring into milk, flour, egg white and bread crumbs (in that same order). Place on prepared cookie sheets and bake for 20 minutes. Turn onion rings over and bake till golden brown, about 10 minutes longer. Because the bread crumbs are last, you don't really need the unhealthy cooking spray. Save that for the rusty lug nuts on your car. Also, don't forget to add salt and pepper to the flour, and just a bit of nutmeg. For the popular beer battered onion rings use beer instead of milk, and add a bit of cream of tartar with the salt and pepper. Have FUN! DearaWebby
this is kind of amazing!
____________________________________________________ CHANGING A LIGHT-BULB... How many members does it take to change a light bulb? Charismatics: Only one. Hands already in the air. Roman Catholics: None. They use candles. Pentecostals: Ten. One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness. Presbyterians: None. God has predestined when the lights will be on and off. Episcopalians: Eight. One to call the electrician, and seven to say how much more they liked the previous one.. Mormons: Five. One man to change the bulb, and four wives to tell him how to do it. Unitarians: We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, that is fine. You are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your personal relationship with your light bulb, and present it next month at our annual Light Bulb Sunday Service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, three-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence. Baptists: At least 15. One to change the light bulb, and two or three committees to approve the change. Oh, and also a couple to provide a casseroles. Lutherans: None. Lutherans don't believe in change. Atheists: None. Lightbulbs are just superstition. -------- I liked the baptists, mainly becasue of the casseroles, however, when a girl once tried to convert me and the baptism was discussed, they were looking for a place to anchor me for a week. So I declined and learned to cook casseroles myself. ___________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Catherine Therrell, 55 Pevely, Missouri Naked Missouri woman sitting on couch when mom and young boys come home. A Missouri woman called police last week when she returned home with her two young boys to find a naked woman sitting on their couch, according to KTVI. “I asked her who she was and why she was there and she told me her name was Catherine and she was there for the birthday party,” said Brianna Willey. “And she was definitely dressed for it.” There was no birthday party and the woman was stripped down to her birthday suit, wearing nothing. “I had to ask her to let me in the house because she put the latch on, and she put her clothes on backwards, then she realized her clothes were on backwards, so she proceeded to take them back off as I was standing there,” Willey said. “Officers who later arrived on scene and placed her in custody advised that she was highly intoxicated,” said Cpl. Benjamin Litterall of the Pevely Police Department. This isn’t the first time the woman has crashed someone’s home drunk. The woman, identified as Catherine Therrell, was charged when she crashed her vehicle into a home back in February. In that incident, Therrell narrowly missed hitting a mother and child sitting in the living room watching TV, according to police. Police said Therrell's blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit. She was charged with driving while intoxicated persistent offender and second-degree property damage, with a $10,000 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jennifer Re: Electric watch battery Dear Webby I know this is not computer or web related, but nobody else can answer me. Is it possible to change the battery in a wrist watch, or are they all just disposable now? There is no clockmaker in the entire valley any more, and I am stuck. Jennifer /i> Dear Jennifer Changing watch batteries is easy, IF you have the right tools. Don't ever attempt to do it by holding the watch in your hand. That is a guarantee that you will stab your hand. You have to use a knife-sharp screwdiver or wood chisel to pry open the back. Noting to it if the watch is held rock-solid in a vise, away from vulnerable hands. Luckily the tools are amazingly cheap. A good watch vise is $8 - $10. A "professional watchmaker's tool kit" is around $60 - $70, but unless you want to change the batteries for everybody in the valley, you will easily get away with a $15 battery-changer's tool kit. You can always add more tools if there is a demand. If you have a decent watch vise, you can improvise on the tools, or use tools you already have. Battery makers, like Energizer, have good on-line instructions for how to change watch batteries. They are almost like a course, and in PDF for easy printing as a manual. An example is at Energizer Watch Battery Replacement Guide If you have problems seeing very small stuff, either get a magnifying glass, or get some kid to help you. It's actually really easy if you can see small stuff, like the + or - on the tiny battery. At Walmart they change batteries on watches bought there, and if you are really good at flirting, they will do it on other watches too. Have FUN! DearWebby
Today's Bonehead reminded me of this story: A man was sitting at a bar enjoying an after-work beer when an exceptionally gorgeous & sexy young woman entered. She was so striking that the man could not take his eyes away from her. The young woman noticed his overly-attentive stare and walked directly toward him. Before he could offer his apologies for being so rude, the young woman said to him, "I'll do anything, absolutely anything, that you want me to do, no matter how kinky, for $100 on one condition." Flabbergasted, the man asked what the condition was. The young woman replied, "You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words." The man considered her proposition for a moment, withdrew his wallet from his pocket and slowly counted out five $20 bills, which he pressed into the young woman's hand. He looked deeply into her eyes and slowly, meaningfully said, "Clean my house."

Because nobody had read the boss's announcements re a picnic on the company anniversary, I was told today that in future all of his announcements be put "right beside the Webby Humor Letter, which seems to be the only part of the bulletin board anybody reads".

I, as well as four of my friends, have tried to get this download to work to no avail. Am I missing something?

Especially sneaky since their instructions are a lot longer than mine usually are.

Talented master craftsman creating pottery and ceramics pieces.
A millionaire miser has died and is completing his interview with Saint Peter. To avoid distractions, he was sitting in a bare and rather uncomfortable interview booth. At the conclusion of the interview, St. Peter asks if he has any questions. The man replies, "Yes, I'd heard as a youth that in Heaven one of your seconds was like a thousand years for us, and that a penny was like a billion dollars. Is that true?" He was getting kinda giddy at the calculations in his head. St. Peter answered, "Yes, that is certainly is true." The millionaire handed him a ten dollar bill with a big grin, asking for its worth. St Peter took the bill from him, smiled and said "Well, since you are still on the outside, the exchange rate works against you. I'll have to crank up the big computer to figure out if we have anything that small. Just wait in that interview booth, I'll be back in few minutes."
