______________________________________________________ He is winding the watch of his wit; by and by it will strike. --- William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616), ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Two guys are walking through the woods when they come to a pit. The first guy says, "How deep you think this pit is?" The second guy says, "I don't know. Let's throw in a rock and listen for it to hit the bottom." They throw in a rock and listen, but they don't hear anything. The first guy says, "We need to throw in something heavy so when it hits it'll make more noise." So they find a cement block and throw it in and listen, but they still don't hear anything. The first guy says, "We need to find something really heavy, that'll make a real lot of noise when it hits bottom." So they go further into the woods, and come across an old railroad tie. They haul it back to the pit, and throw it in. They still didn't hear anything, but all of a sudden a goat comes running out the woods and leaps into the pit. The first guy says, "Well, if that wasn't the craziest damn goat I ever seen." Just then a farmer comes walking up to them and says, "You fellas seen a goat?" The first guy says, "Yes, sir. A goat just came running up and jumped right into that pit." The farmer says, "Oh, that couldn't have been my goat. I had him tied to a railroad tie." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Falcon 9 blast hitting 10 inches of water on the launch pad _____________________________________________________

Tech Support Pits From: DJ Re: Compressing pictures Dear Webby hello my friend, is there a way to compress a picture that takes up a whole email page down to about 2"x2" thanks, DJ Dear DJ Compressing does not change the visible size. Compressing keeps the visible size the same, but degrades the picture and throws away color depth pixels and thereby makes the file size smaller. What you need to do is to RESIZE (not compress) the picture size. Open the picture in any graphics or paint program, click on Image, Resize. Then toggle it from pixels to inches, and type in the desired dimensions. That's all there is to it. And save it under a new name, so that you still have the original huge picture. Have FUN DearWebby
The bride said she wanted three children, while the young husband said two would be enough for him. They discussed this discrepancy for a few minutes until the husband thought he'd put an end to things by saying boldly, "After our second child, I'll just have a vasectomy." Without a moments hesitation, the bride retorted, "Well, I hope you'll love the third one just as if was your own."

A man realized he needed to purchase a hearing aid, but he felt unwilling to spend much money. "How much do they run?" he asked the clerk. "That depends," said the salesman. "They run from $2.00 to $4,000." "Let's see the $2.00 model," he said. The clerk put the device around the man's neck. "You just stick this button in your ear and run this little string down to your pocket," he instructed. "How does it work?" the customer asked. "For $2.00 it doesn't work," the salesman replied. "But when people see it on you, they'll talk louder...!"

Two drunks were in a tavern sitting at the bar and staring into their drinks. One got a curious look on his face and asked, "Hey, Pete! Have you ever seen an ice cube with a hole in it before?" "Yep. I been married to one for fifteen years...." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Testing Your Refrigerator Seal To test the seal of your refrigerator, put a piece of paper on the edge of the rubber gasket and close the door. If the paper can be pulled out easily, the seal may need replacing. Don't get too carried away with that! As long as the paper does not fall, the seal is good enough. If you want to save on the electricity a fridge or freezer uses, clean the condenser grid behind or under the fridge frequently and make sure that there are no dust bunnies impeding air flow. I went a step further and back-set the fridge into the wall. There is no insulation between the fridge and the outside sheating, and a grill allows in fresh outside air into the space under the fridge and exhausts it to the outside through a little chimney above. It always has fresh outside air to cool the condenser grid and except in winter, it pumps the waste heat outside, and not into the kitchen. As you can probably imagine, that saves a very significant amount of electricity. Have FUN! DearWebby Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ I can't say I've ever gotten a shave from a barber, but I've seen others who have. I was in a shop once, and an obviously new barber nicked a customer several times while giving him a shave. The new man, in an effort to smooth things over asked solicitously, "Do you want your head wrapped in a hot towel?" "No thanks." said the customer. "I'll carry it home under my arm."
Oh Lord, won't you buy me a caravan yacht?
___________________________________________________ A woman was waiting at an airport one night, With several long hours before her flight. She hunted for a book in the airport shops. Bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop. She was engrossed in her book but happened to see, That the man sitting beside her, as bold as could be, Grabbed a cookie or two from the bag in between, Which she tried to ignore to avoid a scene. So she munched the cookies and watched the clock, As the gutsy cookie thief diminished her stock. She was getting more irritated as the minutes ticked by, Thinking, "If I wasn't so nice, I would blacken his eye." With each cookie she took, he took one too, When only one was left, she wondered what he would do. With a smile on his face, and a nervous laugh, He took the last cookie and broke it in half. He offered her half, as he ate the other, She snatched it from him and thought... ooh,brother. This guy has some nerve and he's also rude, Why he didn't even show any gratitude! She had never known when she had been so galled, And sighed with relief when her flight was called. She gathered her belongings and headed to the gate, Refusing to look back at the thieving ingrate. She boarded the plane, and sank in her seat, Then she sought her book, which was almost complete. As she reached in her baggage, she gasped with surprise, There was her bag of cookies, in front of her eyes. If mine are here, she moaned in despair, The others were his, and he tried to share. Too late to apologize, she realized with grief, That she was the rude one, the ingrate, the thief. ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ The pastor shocked the congregation when he announced that he was resigning from the church and moving to a drier climate. After the service, a very distraught lady came to the pastor with tears in her eyes, "Oh, Pastor Bob, we are going to miss you so much. We don't want you to leave!" The kindhearted pastor patted her hand and said "Now, now, Carolyn, don't carry on. The pastor who takes my place might be even better than me". "Yeah", she said, with a tone of disappointment in her voice, "That's what they said the last time too." ____________________________________________________

When she got back, she presented me with a g-string made for women to wear (who dance at bars) to avoid 100% exposure. "Here," she said, "I hope this is what you are looking for!"

Kayla Irizzary was arrested about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday. Moses Lake police said the 19-year-old was a passenger in a car that officers pulled over last week. The driver, Giovanni Powell, 27, was arrested for driving with a suspended license, but officers had no legal reason to detain Irizzary so she was able to leave the scene. While searching the vehicle, however, detectives found a purse containing Irizzary’s ID, a small pistol, heroin and her paperwork from the last time she was released from jail. Irizzary is a convicted felon and ineligible to possess a firearm. According to police, Irizzary then got on the police department’s Facebook page and bragged about getting away, “which we believe is the number one killer of criminal karma that there is,” the department said. After setting up a meeting with Irizzary, using social media, officers were able to arrest her Saturday after a brief foot chase. Irizzary was booked into the Grant County Jail on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of heroin. Both charges were from the original incident. “What social media giveth, social media taketh away: Woman who trolled MLPD back in custody,” police posted on Facebook.

A kind-hearted fellow was walking through Central Park in New York and was astonished to see an old man, fishing rod in hand, fishing over a beautiful bed of red roses. "Tsk Tsk!" said the passerby to himself. "What a sad sight. That poor old man is fishing over a bed of flowers. I'll see if I can help." So the kind fellow walked up to the old man and asked, "What are you doing, my friend?" "Fishin', sir." "Fishin', eh. Well how would you like to come have a drink with me?" The old man stood put his rod away and followed the kind stranger to the corner bar. He ordered a large glass of vodka and a fine cigar. His host, the kind fellow, felt good about helping the old man, and he asked, "Tell me, old friend, how many did you catch today ?" The old fellow took a long drag on the cigar, blew a careful smoke ring and replied, "You are the sixth today, sir...!"

Tech Support Pits From: Connie R Re: Mammogram Site Webby, is it possible to add this web site address to your humor newsletter. I feed the dogs each day, and I think being able to click onto this web url to give a free mammogram to an underpriviledged woman would be another good thing to do. Connie R The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on "donating a mammogram" for free (pink window in the middle). This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors /advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising. Here's the web site! http://www.thebreastcancersite.com/ Connie Dear Connie Please get a normal, healthy male of ANY age to read the Humor Letter, and watch where he clicks. I am happy to say that many female subscribers ALSO let their mouse pounce onto the breast cancer site ad.

Tech Support Pits From: Rheta Re: Missing Mouse Dear Webby Good after noon to you. My question is a lost mouse. On my grand sons computer. Its a XP PC.I can't find it... help please. Rheta Hi there: And thanks for the reply. He has tried different mouse. But still nothing. Some one was telling me that theres keys that you can use instead of a mouse. Have any clues on that one?? Rheta Dear Rheta There are some keys you can use: Hit the Scroll Lock key a few times, to make sure it is turned off. If the mouse starts working after that, you got the problem solved. Arrow keys and combinations of SHIFT and CTRL plus the arrows, Tab, ALT-Tab to jump between Windows, but that's about it, and even those commands sometimes act differently in different programs. I use a lot of keyboard shortcuts, but they are not a complete substitute for a mouse. If you hit the Windows button, you can use the arrow keys to get into the control panel and to the mouse, and make sure it is not disabled. If everything looks OK in there, tell him to try a new mouse, not one that has been put on the shelf because it was too cute to throw away, even though it had become flakey. If the mouse settings are OK and a brand new mouse doesn't work either, then he will have to get the hardware checked. Have FUN DearWebby

>From Roland For a couple years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep or too much pressure from my job, but now I've found out the real reason that I am always tired. I'm overworked. The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work. There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work. Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work. 2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work. 14,800,000 people work for State and City Governments. That leaves 1.4 million to do the work. At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work. Given that there are 1,211,998 people in prisons, that leaves just two people to do the work, you and me.

Walking through the warehouse he noticed a young man lazily leaning against a packing crate. The factory owner angrily said, "Just how much are you being paid?" The young man replied, "Two hundred dollars a week." The owner pulled out his wallet, peeled off ten $20 bills and shouted at the young man: "Here is a week's pay--now get out and don't come back!" Without a word, the young man stuffed the money into his pocket and left. The warehouse manager, standing nearby, stared in amazement. "Tell me," the boss asked him, "How long has that guy worked for us?" "He doesn't work here," replied the warehouse manager, "He was just the Pizza guy waiting for George to find two more dollars for his lunch order."

Authorities said Gloria Burton's unknown male accomplice is still on the loose. Investigators said surveillance video from the store clearly shows Burton and an unknown man working together to pour gasoline all over one of the pumps, then light it on fire and drive away. A few hours after Burton left the gas station, the state fire marshal arrested her at Duffy’s bar, where she was working as a bartender. Witnesses to the fire said she was wearing her uniform when she carried out the crime. Surveillance tapes show Burton, wearing her Duffy's uniform, purchasing $12 of gas at 2 a.m. Thursday, before walking outside, pouring the gas onto the ground near the pump and setting it ablaze. Witnesses said Burton “seemed hyper” while purchasing gas. Investigators found Burton when a Duffy’s general manager identified her in pictures from the surveillance tapes. Detectives arrested Burton when she arrived for a shift at Duffy’s. Burton is charged with felony arson and the state fire marshal is still looking for the man that was with her. Duffy’s Bar and Grille was unreachable for comment about the status of Burton’s current employment status with them.

One evening a man was very impressed with the meat entree his wife had served. "What did you marinate this in?" he asked. His wife immediately went into a long explanation about how much she loves him and how life wouldn't be the same without him, etc. Eventually, his puzzled expression made her interrupt her answer with a question of her own, " What did you ask me?" She chuckled at his answer and explained, "I thought you asked me if I would marry you again!" As she left the room, he called out, "Well, would you marry me again?" Without hesitation, she said, "Vinegar and barbecue sauce."

_____________________________________________________ At the local gas utility written orders are issued to change meters when they are old or malfunctioning. On the order sheet is a "remarks" section, where the service representative notes any problems that prevented the job from being completed. The most succinct explanation to ever come back was: "DOG DOES NOT WANT METER TO BE CHANGED." _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Reece Hanson, 24, West Allis, Wisconsin Dopey Heroin user charged with 4th DUI and released on cheap bail What looked and sounded like a routine traffic stop on March 30 changed gears when the suspect in a black Porsche took off, reaching speeds of up to 100 miles-per-hour. Reece Hanson, who would later be arrested, was behind the wheel, prosecutors say. Stop sticks slowed the vehicle down to around 40 miles-per-hour, and then 20 mph. The driver and passenger jumped out, and police chased them. Police detained the female passenger, who was cited. Police said the driver stumbled down a hill before he was tackled and pepper spray was used. Judging by the mug shot, they wiped the gound with his face. The passenger, who has not been charged, admitted to police that she and Hanson were "avid heroin users," and they were "under the influence of heroin." Hanson, 24, is facing four charges: Vehicle operator flee/elude officer Second degree recklessly endangering safety OWI, fourth offense Operating while revoked (revocation due to alcohol/controlled substance/refusal) He was charged with eluding an officer just one day before this incident in West Allis. Online court records show he has two other open cases in addition to the most recent one. The fleeing/eluding charge was filed in March, and last November, he was charged with obstructing an officer- a misdemeanor. He made his initial appearance in court in the most recent case on April 5. Cash bond was set at a record low of $15,000, probably hoping he will make it a 5th DUI by his court date on June 4 for a status conference.

Subject: How The Internet Began..... (This is not Al Gore's version) In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot. And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she had been called Amazon Dot Com. She said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why doth thou travel far from town to town with thy goods when thou can trade without ever leaving thy tent?" And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, Dear?" And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale and they will reply telling you which hath the best price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)." Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. The drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever moving from his tent. But this success did arouse envy. A man named Maccabia did secret himself inside Abraham's drum and was accused of insider trading. And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Siderites, or NERDS for short. And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to the drum maker, one Brother William of Gates, who bought up every drum company in the land. And indeed did insist on making drums that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks. Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others." And as Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or as it came to be known "eBay" he said, "We need a name that reflects what we are," and Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators." "YAHOO", said Abraham. And that is how it all began.

Early in their marriage, my Dad did something really stupid. My Mom chewed him out for it. He apologized, they made up. However, from time to time, my Mom mentioned what he had done. "Honey," my Dad finally said one day, "why do you keep bringing that up? I thought your policy was 'forgive and forget.'" "It is," she said. "I just don't want you to forget that I've forgiven and forgotten."

Bob was faced with a difficult decision recently and asked some of his friends what he should do. This is what he got: Beware of Greeks bearing gifts. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. A silent man is a wise one. A man without words is a man without thoughts. Look before you leap. He who hesitates is lost. Many hands make light work. Too many cooks spoil the broth. Actions speak louder than words. The pen is mightier than the sword. Clothes make the man. Don't judge a book by its cover. It's the squeaky wheel that gets the grease. The nail that sticks out gets hammered. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Better safe than sorry. If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'. A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor. Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled. Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads. Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you. It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge. You cannot unsay a cruel word. Every path has a few puddles. When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty. The best sermons are lived, not preached. Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway. Don't judge folks by their relatives. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer. Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you none. Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got. Always drink upstream from the herd. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in. If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around. The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'. Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God. Finally he asked me: "Now what do I do?" ==Continued tomorrow== Just kidding I told him that if it didn't kill him, it would make him stronger. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Preheat Your Oven Always preheat your oven before baking. Oven temperature is very important for successful baking. Purchase an oven thermometer to verify the temperature in your oven is accurate. Tip: If pans are too close together, you won't get proper heat circulation which could cause uneven baking. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ On the Upper West Side of NYC lived an assimilated Jewish man who was now a very militant atheist. But he sent his son Morris to Trinity School because, despite its denominational roots, it's a great school and completely secular. After a month, the boy came home and said casually, "By the way Dad, I learned what Trinity means! It means 'The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.'" The father could barely control his rage. He seized his son by the shoulders and screamed, "Morris, I'm going to tell you something now and I want you never to forget it. Forget the Trinity business. There is only one God... and we don't believe in him!"

"That, *sir*, is NOT the way you spell Theodore." _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by TheodisColeman, 37, Jonesboro, Ak. Girl, 2, screamed in agony after she and mother were stabbed by her father with a steak knife Harrowing police bodycam footage shows a two year old girl screaming in agony after being stabbed in the arm by her father with a steak knife. The youngster, who has not been named, was sliced through the arm by Theodis Coleman, 37, after police arrived to deal with a domestic dispute at his home in Jonesboro, Ak., last month. Footage released by Jonesboro PD begins with Coleman arguing with his partner over custody of the children, saying ‘You didn’t have to call no police.’ Moments later he lunges at the woman with the knife, slicing both her and the little girl through the arm. That prompts an immediate response from the cops, who order Coleman to the floor while pointing their guns at him. After showing the altercation from a different angle, the video then cuts to show the screaming toddler being rushed outside by her mother, while the woman slams her partner for what he has done, saying ‘He just stabbed me. I hate this boy.’ One cop calmly instructs her to hold the little girl’s arm and put pressure on it as he makes a tourniquet from a first aid bag inside his cruiser. She was later flown by helicopter to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tn. Both mother and daughter are expected to make a full recovery. Coleman was charged with second-degree domestic battery and is in Craighead County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bond, reports the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. Police say the incident arose after the woman threatened to leave Coleman and take the little girl with her. A Jonesboro PD spokesman hailed the actions of its officer, saying: ‘Officer Blaine Middlecoff was able to act without hesitation to stop life-threatening bleeding because of the training he had received from the Stop the Bleeding Foundation.’

She called the local Poison Control Center and voiced her concern. They advised Becky to boil the sauce again. That night, the phone rang during dinner, and one of the guests volunteered to answer it. Becky's face dropped as the guest called out, "It's the Poison Control Center. They want to know how the spaghetti sauce turned out."

"I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it," says Ralph. "How about a Demonstration?" The auditor thinks for a moment and said, "Okay. Go ahead." Ralph says, "I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye." The auditor thinks a moment and says, "No way! It's a bet." Ralph removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor's jaw drops. Ralph says, "Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye." The auditor can tell Ralph isn't blind, so he takes the bet.

"Now that we've fixed your sinuses, we'll work on your hearing!!!" _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Isitro Lee Sanches, 59, Panama City, Floriduh Neighbor guilty in stalking case busted with 90 pounds of panties A man known in his trailer park as “Santa Claus” has been convicted of breaking into a neighbor’s home to leave her notes and panties he wanted to see her wear. The Bay County Sheriff’s Office arrested Isitro Lee Sanches in April 2017 after serving a search warrant on his Kimbrel Avenue trailer in Callaway, where they found about 90 pounds of women’s underwear. After a one-day trial, jurors on Friday found Sanches, 59, guilty as charged Thursday on three counts of burglary and a count of aggravated stalking. Sanches faces up to 40 years in prison on the combined charges, according to the State Attorney’s Office. His sentencing is set for May 11. Prosecutor Calie Rivera told the jury that from January to April 2017, one of Sanches’ neighbors received countless notes and pieces of undergarments in her car, on her front porch and inside her home on her bed. Within each note was a subtle message that a stranger was watching her and waiting for the day he could see her in the underwear he’d picked. “This case was a nightmare,” Rivera said. “It was one long nightmare from January to April 2017.” Sanches’ defense attorney, Seth Killion, argued that prosecutors had no direct evidence that tied him to the stalking charge. He conceded Sanches was in her home, but that he did not have a criminal intent. “The only thing they are going to prove is that he was there,” Killion told the jury. “But they won’t be able to prove he was there with intent to commit a crime.” The jury disagreed. Rivera presented bag after bag of panties to the jury during the woman’s testimony, having her read aloud the notes attached. The woman said while the jury saw numerous panties in the trial, she hadn’t been able to collect all of them. “It got to the point it happened several times a day,” she said. “I was just gathering the notes and the panties so I could report them later. It got too much. I work two jobs.” The woman said on top of the growing task of collecting all the evidence, she and her family also became scared and eventually were forced to moved. “My kids were scared,” she told the jury. “We had to get hotels a few times. I had to move as soon as school got out.” BCSO initially responded in January 2017 to a stalking complaint after the woman found about eight pairs of panties and a note inside her unlocked car. Months passed, and she continued to find women’s underwear on her front porch, in her kitchen and on her bed. After she went to work April 13, 2017, her boyfriend heard someone enter the residence and confronted a male neighbor known as “Santa Claus” in the kitchen. “He found a man in the kitchen staring back at him and demanded answers,” Rivera said. “Instead, the man he confronted stared off like a deer in headlights. He then walked to the door and used his shirt to turn the knob and leave.” Sanches then walked home to his trailer, looking over his shoulder to see the boyfriend in pursuit. After that, BCSO obtained a search warrant and recovered three 30-pound bags of women’s underwear from Sanches’ home. It’s unclear if there were other victims, but the woman said she was traumatized by the experience. “He was just my neighbor — we waved a couple times,” she said. “I felt violated and scared — scared for my children.”
Tech Support Pits From: Tory Re: Power Strips Dear Webby Dear Webby, The power cord question reminded me of two more... 1) I've been told power strips and/or surge protectors wear out and that one should replace them about as often as one does the computer - every 3 yrs if budget allows (grin). True or not? 2. At work, it used to be the practice to use the on/off switch on surge protectors/power strips to turn off computers. "Back when" we were always told it was a lot cheaper to replace a power strip with worn out switch than it was to repair a worn out on/off button on a computer. Then folks started saying that that was a stupid idea, since "how could a surge protector do it's job if it wasn't turned on?". 3) Do you know whether a computer is still protected if the surge protector is turned off? (At home we don't debate this. Since we have a lot of storms, the practice has been to just unplug anything electronic and expensive.) Thanks from a fan! Tory Dear Tory 1) Cheap surge protected power strips usually have a light or lighted switch. When their suicide transistor has given it's life while protecting your equipment, the light flickers or, with some models, does not light. You can still use it for power tools and lights, but it won't protect delicate equipment from surges any more. 2) The power switch on a computer is $1.29 retail, the power strip is $9.95 Strange math they used there! However, if there were people around, who could not be relied on to turn their machine off, then of course a common power strip or breaker does make sense. In the days of 10" greenie monitors and the IBM DisplayWrite menu permanently burned into the screens from people leaving their machines on all year, I installed quite a few switches and contactors, so that the last one out could axe all the computers on that floor. In those days, that was a valid concern. 3) When the power strip is turned off, then normally only the ground wire is still connected. That makes it perfectly safe. The white wire is grounded at the breaker panel, and only the black wire can bring in any surges or spikes. When that wire is disconncted at the power strip switch, nothing can get to the computer. Keep in mind that with modern computers the ON/OF switch is "soft". Shutting the computer down does not completely turn it off. If you open the side cover, you will see a tiny green dot of light on the motherboard. In their great wisdom, or lack thereof, shut off computers can now be started via the modem or the mouse, or even by data input from your toy weather station. Any surge or spike can kill the power supply instantly. If the machine is out of warranty, then you are out of luck. Your way of unplugging the computer or turning the power strip off during storms or before going on vacation is most definitely a good idea. Have FUN DearWebby

She looks at her mother and inquisitively asks, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?"

A woman is accused of breaking into an Arizona home, bathing in the homeowner’s bathtub, and sending tens of thousands of disturbing text messages to the man’s phone after the pair went on one date, according to KNXV. In July 2017, 31-year-old Jacqueline Ades was found parked outside of the victim’s Paradise Valley home, police said. The man also accused her of repeatedly texting him, despite him saying he no longer wanted to talk to her. Officers found Ades still outside the victim’s home when they arrived and told her to leave, officials said. Shortly after, the man started to receive threatening text messages from the suspect. Police received a similar report in December from the same residence, but officers were unable to locate her. On April 8, the victim called a detective a third time, saying he was out of the country, but saw Ades in his home while checking his home surveillance video. When officers arrived at the home, the woman was taking a bath, police said. A large butcher knife was discovered on the passenger’s seat of her car, court paperwork said. She was taken into custody and charged with trespassing. After Ades was released from jail, she allegedly started sending more threatening text messages to the victim — some of the messages alluded that “harm may come to him,” authorities said. Less than three weeks later, the victim called authorities to report receiving multiple threatening text messages from her, court documents said. The man also explained that they met on a dating website, and after one date Ades began stalking and harassing him. Ades allegedly sent about 65,000 text messages to the man’s phone. The victim said that she sent about 500 text messages to him a day, court documents said. In one of Ades’ messages, she allegedly stated, “…Don’t ever try to leave me…I’ll kill you…I don’t wanna be a murderer.” She also said that she wanted to wear his body parts and bathe in his blood, court paperwork said. On May 4, police were called to a business in Scottsdale after passersby reported Ades “acting irrationally and claiming to be the owner’s wife,” police said. The owner of the business is the Paradise Valley homeowner. Ades was arrested on Tuesday on charges of threatening, stalking and harassment. While being questioned by police, the suspect explained that she sent the man text messages all day but he never responded, court documents said. She said that she threatened him because she was worried he had called police to report her behavior. The woman is also accused of admitting that she threatened him because she didn’t want him to leave and because she loved him, court paperwork said. She allegedly admitted to knowing her statements were “crazy” and plans to return to Florida once she’s released.
Tech Support Pits From: BundlePuppy: Re: Reversed PIN Dear Webby I received this fwd from a friend of mine and was wondering if this information about using your pin in reverse order to signal, that you are under duress, is true or just another Internet scam? BundlePuppy Dear BundlePuppy It's not a scam, since nobody profits from it, but it's not true. While the Reverse PIN has worked fine for three decades on burglar alarm and door access systems, the banks are fighting the Reverse PIN tooth and nail and with heavy lobbying at the state and federal level. What is really hypocritical, is that most banks use the Reverse PIN trick on their door access systems, but spend big money lobbying against it's use at the ATM level. Since the ATMs already have a modem and already are connected, and often also have a separate connection for a security alarm, it would just be a matter of a few lines of code in the bank side programming. Instead they use lame excuses such as that there might some day be a victim who gets confused during the stress of a hold-up and might not be able to reverse the number. It's tough luck for the Billions who would have no problem punching in the PIN in reverse order, just like they got it written on the back page of their checkbook. Have FUN DearWebby

Now what would you call that kind of person?" While the rest of us pondered the question, a sheriff's officer taking the course raised his hand and replied, "A suspect."

Thanks to Rubye for this story: A Florida couple, both well into their 80s, goes to a sex therapist's office. The doctor asks, "What can I do for you?" The man says, "Will you watch us have sexual intercourse?" The doctor raises both eyebrows, but he is so amazed that such an elderly couple is asking for sexual advice that he agrees. When the couple finishes, the doctor says, "There's absolutely nothing wrong with the way you have intercourse." He thanks them for coming, he wishes them good luck, charges them $50, and says good-bye. The next week, however, the couple returns and asks the sex therapist to watch again. The sex therapist is a bit puzzled, but agrees. This happens several weeks in a row. The couple makes an appointment, they have intercourse with no problems, pay the doctor, then leave. Finally, after 5 or 6 weeks of this routine, the doctor says, "I'm sorry, but I have to ask. Just what are you trying to find out?" The old man says, "We're not trying to find out anything. She's married and we can't go to her house. I'm married and we can't go to my house. The Holiday Inn charges $98. The Hilton charges $139. We do it here for $50, and I get $43 back from Medicare.

Comics http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/comics/ _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Morgan Summerlin, 25, Fulton County, Georgia Georgia mom admits she let men rape daughters, ages 5 and 6, in exchange for money him down. A 25-year-old Georgia mother admitted she allowed two men to rape her daughters in exchange for money. According to the Office of the Fulton County District Attorney, the 5-year-old and 6-year-old girls told their guardians that their mother, Morgan Summerlin, took them to the men’s homes where they were sexually assaulted. The men would give the girls money; Summerlin would then take the cash for herself. A jury found one of the men, Richard Office, guilty last week on charges of rape, child molestation, trafficking a person for sexual servitude, enticing a child for indecent purposes and sexual battery. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole plus an additional 146 years to run concurrently. Summerlin also allowed another man, Alfredo Trejo, to abuse her children. He was convicted of rape, sexual battery, child molestation and aggravated child molestation in February. A judge sentenced him to 25 years in prison and lifetime probation. Like Office, Trejo would abuse the girls and give them money, which Summerlin would then take, prosecutors said. On April 26, Summerlin pleaded guilty to cruelty to children, trafficking a person for sexual servitude and enticing a child for indecent purposes. Sentencing is set for June 4. The children’s grandmother, Teresa Davidson, pleaded guilty to cruelty to children for failing to protect the girls after they told her about the abuse. She was sentenced to five years. The report did not state why the mother did not have guardianship, or who the actual guardian was.
Tech Support Pits From: Carrie Re: Internet business Dear Webby There is so much written about making big money on the Internet. Since most of that is in spam, how much of that can be believed ? I want just a small business without the stress that comes with a big company. Is there something that would fit for me? Thanks Carrie Dear Carrie If you want "just a small business", then crochet doilies and sell them to relatives. You will make more money than any of the gullible suckers who believe what they read in spam. If you want an Internet business that pays you more per month than working as a part time greeter at Walmart, then you have to follow some basic rules: 1) Clean up your credit rating enough so that you can get a credit card merchant account or a PayPal merchant account. Register as a company and get aa company bank account. Make the company pay you a wage and all the legal requirements like pension plan, medical, etc. You will severely kick yourself if you neglect that! Btw., you don't really need to really pay yourself instantly. It is quite customary that you simply have the compoany owe you the wages, and you keep them in there as an investment until the company can afford to pay you. Just keep track of all that same as any company expense, that you "lend" to the company. 2) Set up a web site. However, be careful and limit your time! It's really easy to do, but if the creativity bug bites you, it's too much fun and becomes addictive, and it's easy to forget that the reason for it is your business. It's quite OK to play, but budget your time! If you don't know how to write pages, take the free HTML course that you see in the right side margin. 3) Start writing a regular newsletter. Absolutely nothing will generate as many contacts and friends. 4) As you are getting comfortable with pages and newsletters, it's time to find a niche that suites you. Don't pick anything that requires x amount of hours to make, but something that you can duplicate easily or buy easily. Try to avoid nutrition supplements. That niche is way too crowded and you won't make any money there. 5) Avoid MLM (pyramid schemes) where you are just making money for your upline. 6) Get yourself a coach. Life is too short to make all the mistakes yourself. Avoid those who claim that they are a coach or successful but are actually so poor that they resort to spamming. They are like the fortune tellers on the street, who can't even predict when they are going to be arrested. Instead find somebody who is running a successful business and has done so for a long time. 7) Stock up on a small amount of whatever you are planning to sell and sell it to friends. ABSOLUTELY refuse to accept cash. I don't have the space here to explain it, but cash will ruin your business for sure. Tell them that you need to test your order form or your merchant account, or whatever, but don't accept cash! Make everybody go through your order form or shopping cart, and keep that money totally separate. You can write off a lot of things, and pay yourself generously, but only if you keep a very strict separation. Anything else will just get you yelled at by your accountant and by the tax authorities, cost you more and waste a lot of time. I can't tell you what would work in your area. You need a local start, unless you have a huge amolunt of starting capital. However, you CAN use international suppliers, as long as you keep your source secret. Have a look at Gamiss, a Chinese clothing supplier. Their quality is excellent and they ship incredibly fast. If you put together a catalog, that features their items, you could make pretty good money! I ordered an $8 parka with faake fur trim on the hood from them before Christmas. The same would have cost me close to $100 locally. Right now they got, for example Turndown Collar Single Breasted Fleece PU Leather Jacket - Espresso - 2xl $20.55 https://www.gamiss.com/jackets-11573/product918206/?utm_source=Criteo&utm_medium=CPCCA&utm_campaign=Displayads&lkid=1122 I didn't order it, but it is just an example. Don't get limited to an example! Consider your interests and pick something, that does not turn you off, and that your friends would be interested in. Have FUN DearWebby
The elementary school teacher was trying impress upon the seventh-grade history class how Native Americans must have felt when they first encountered the Spanish explorers. "How would you feel," said she, "if someone showed up on your doorstep who looked very different, spoke a strange language and wore unusual clothes? Wouldn't you be a bit scared?" "Nah," one boy answered, "I'd just figure it was my sister's newest boyfriend."

He was greatly interested in it, and the next morning proceeded to baptize his three cats in the bathtub. The youngest kitten bore it very well, and so did the younger cat, but the old family tom cat rebelled. The old feline struggled with the boy, clawed his skin, and finally got away. With considerable effort the boy caught the old tom again and proceeded with the "ceremony." But the cat acted worse than ever, clawing and spitting, and scratching the boy's face. Finally, after barely getting the cat splattered with water, he dropped him on the floor in disgust and said: "Fine, be a Methodist if you want to!"

The children were not injured. Vindigni left on foot but was located by deputies at the intersection of Palm Springs and Wekiva Springs roads, authorities said. Deputies said Vindigni resisted arrest, but was eventually taken into custody. Vindigni grabbed and pinched a deputy on the back of her leg during the incident, an arrest report said. Reynolds, the crossing guard, was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Investigators believe it was an isolated incident. Vindigni was taken to the John E.

While looking for some history I came across this bonehead award and Darwin award from 10 years ago: Bregenz, Austria In the early morning hours an 18 year old on the way home from a party decided to climb over the iron railing along the train tracks, presumably to get down to the lake on the other side of the tracks. He was wearing a long black down jacket and the train driver never saw him. However, the driver reported hearing the typical faint thud at that location. At dawn the cops checked the area but saw nothing. Later that morning somebody saw blood on the locomotive and a jogger reported body pieces, so four cops and two funeral parlor employees with body bags went to the location. After gathering the pieces of the unidentified 18 year old, police woman Herlinde Kempf, 32, policeman German Baldauf, 63 and funeral parlor worker Manfred Petschenig, 47 stood on the tracks. Presumably they were discussing the stupidity of standing on the tracks of a railroad, where every few minutes some high speed train flies by at around 100 miles per hour. They were promptly converted into Darwin Award winners. Another policeman and another funeral parlor worker standing beside the track were not hurt, but watched the incident. Police claims that the accident happened because the locomotive driver had not been warned that there were idiots, ahem "Darwin Award Applicants", on the loose in the area, and that if he had been warned, he would have slowed down the Intercity Express to a walking pace. The Intercity Express is a very high speed train, that makes just one stop per country betwen Munich and Zurich.

_____________________________________________________ An eighty-five-year-old couple, married for almost sixty years, died in a car crash. They had been in good health the last ten years, mainly as a result of her interest in health food and exercise. When they reached the Pearly Gates, St. Peter took them to their mansion, which was decked out with a beautiful kitchen and a master bath suite with a sauna and Jacuzzi. As they "oohed and aahed" the old man asked Peter how much all this was going to cost. "It's free," Peter replied. "This is heaven." Next they went out back to survey the championship golf course that the home backed up to. They would have golfing privileges every day, and each week the course would change to new one that represented one of the great golf courses on Earth. The old man asked, "What are the green fees?" Peter's reply: "This is heaven; you play for free." Next they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch with the cuisines of the world laid out. "How much to eat?" asked the old man. "Don't you understand yet? This is heaven; it is free!" Peter replied with some exasperation. "Well, where are the low-fat and low-cholesterol tables?" the old man asked timidly. Peter lectured, "That's the best part: You can eat as much as you like of whatever you like and you never get fat and you never get sick. This is heaven."

Tech Support Pits From: Liane Re: Not getting my mail out Dear Webby, I am writing this with gmail, because you and most people don't seem to get mail from my regular business address. What am I doing wrong? Liane Dear Liane Very few ISPs censor outgoing mail. Most likely you are using a childish autoresponder and got blocked and blacklisted by the people who had written to you before. Nowadays autoresponders are only appropriate when they provide real information. A good example is: "Write to ... to get an up to the minute road report from a guaranteed unmonitored and safe autoresponder." Telling somebody that mail arrived and that you may or may not get around to answer it some day, is NOT considered real information. That is considered as dumb a nuisance as any other unsolicited mail. Like me, a lot of people trash mail from autoresponders right on the server, unseen by anybody, and at the same time automatically blacklist the sender. Just dump that blocked and blacklisted address, get a new address and don't use a silly autoresponder on the new one. Have FUN DearWebby
A local law enforcement officer stops a car for traveling faster than the posted speed limit. Since he's in a good mood that day he decides to give the poor fellow a break and write him out a warning instead of a ticket. So, he asks the man his name. Fred," he replies. Fred what?" the officer asks. "Just Fred," the man responds. When the officer presses him for a last name, the man tells him that he used to have a last name but lost it. The officer thinks he has a nut case on his hands but plays along with it. "Tell me Fred, how did you lose your last name?" The man replies, "It's a long story so stay with me I was born Fred Dingaling. I know, funny last name. The kids used to tease me all the time. So I stayed to myself. I studied hard and got good grades. When I got older I realized that I wanted to be a doctor. I went through college, medical school, internship, residency, finally got my degree so I was, Fred Dingaling, MD. After a while I got bored being a doctor so I decided to go back to school. Dentistry was my dream. Got all the way through school, got my degree so I was now; Fred Dingaling MD DDS. Got bored doing dentistry so I started fooling around with my assistant. She gave me VD. So, I was Fred Dingaling MD DDS with VD. Well, the ADA found out about the VD so they took away my DDS so I was Fred Dingaling MD with VD. Then the AMA found out about the ADA taking away my DDS because of the VD, so they took away my MD leaving me as, Fred Dingaling with VD. Then the VD took away my dingaling so now I'm just Fred."

An elderly retired couple were driving down the East coast, when they stopped in Georgia for a fuel stop. The elderly woman was very hard of hearing, and usually asked her husband to repeat everything. An elderly station attendent came to the car and started filling the fuel tank. Making idle talk, he asked if the man liked the weather, to which the man replied, "very much". What'd he say?, asked the woman. "He asked if I like the weather, and I told him yes", replied her husband. "Where are you-all headed", asked the attendant. "Oh, we're going to Jacksonville", he repied. "What'd he say?", asked the woman. "He asked where we're going, and I told him to Jacksonville", the husband replied. "Where are you-all from", inquired the attendant a few moments later. "Oh, we're from Maine," the man replied. "Ah, I was in Maine for two years while I was in the Air Force, replied the attendant. In fact, I dated a girl from Maine while I was there. It didn't last long though. I have to tell you, this girl was the worst in bed of any girl I ever knew." "What'd he say?" inquired the woman. "He said he thinks he knows you," replied her husband.

"Please" the man would beg of anyone who would listen, "just loan me a hundred dollars. I'll double it in no time and pay you right back." People would shake their heads and walk away. However, one night he ran into a generous oil man from Texas who handed him a crisp C-note and said, "Here, boy, enjoy yourself!" After thanking his generous benefactor he walked over to the Black Jack table and blew the money in five minutes. The next night when he saw the Texan, he again asked him for some money, and again the Texan gave him a hundred-dollar bill. But that too was gone within a matter of minutes. This continued for more than three weeks. Every night the Texan would give him money, and every night it would be gone almost before he had it. Finally, in desperation, the unhappy fellow told one of his friends about his experience with the generous Texan. "There's only onr thing to do," his friend told him "Lose the bum. he's bad luck for you!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Get a Smart Thermostat Install a programmable thermostat to adjust your furnace when you need less heat.

Why and how increase virtual memory 




Good Morning, ,
Today is Tuesday, May 8

Got bloodied yeterday evening while walking my neighbor's big dog.

It was really funny. A lady a few blocks away asked if her dog
could meet Copper. Is aid sure, so she took her dog out of her
pick-up. Copper was well behaved until he was about 12 feet away.
Then he suddenly bolted to that dog like a shotgun slug. 

Keep in mind, Copper weighs about 15 pounds more than you do, 
and he is on 4x4.
There was no way I could hold him back. I flew through the air and 
with him pulling had no chance to stay upright. 
With one hand looped in the leash and the other holding the willow
switch I use to get his attention, I nosedived onto the sharp
gravel.
Glasses shattered, of course, and the nose was bleeding profusely.
So were the palms of my hands and both knees.

The lady got some wet paper towel from her nearby house and stopped
the bleeding. I thought it was rather funny, but she felt really
sorry, and gave me a very nice hug. After I told her Copper had
done it just so I would get a decent hug, she gave me a couple
more.

Still got my indoor reading glasses.

A store clerk reported seeing the suspect, identified as Angelique Sanchez, 26, place something in the Aurora, Colo., store’s microwave before hearing a “loud bang” seconds later, Denver’s KUSA-TV reported, citing an Aurora Police Department report. The clerk reportedly told Sanchez to clean up the mess or she would alert police. Sanchez then “wiped out the microwave onto the floor” with napkins and left, Pueblo’s KOAA-TV reported, also citing the police report. The clerk then called police and told them she noticed “yellow liquid dripping from the microwave and the smell was unquestionably urine.” Police later found Sanchez about a half-mile away, at a health clinic where she was waiting to undergo a physical exam and urinalysis for a potential job, according to the report. One of the quality-check measures for a urine screening involves making sure the sample is at body temperature, or around 98.6 degrees, KUSA-TV reported. Sanchez reportedly told police that she had “cleaned up the mess and did not understand the problem.” “When I reminded her that urine blew up where people prepare their food, she told me it was not real urine,” a police officer wrote in his report. The officer said he issued Sanchez a summons for damaged property after informing her that the microwave is worth $500, KUSA-TV reported. Sanchez was also not allowed to take the drug test that day, KOAA-TV reported.

Thank you very much, Diana Dear Diana Virtual memory is a part of the hard drive pretending to be chip memory, when the machine needs more RAM than you actually have under the hood.

Doug Dear Doug A) The fastest your laptop ever ran, was when you started it up the first time. B) The more utilities and speeder-uppers you put on it, the more convenient but also the slower it got. You will have to find a compromise point somewhere between A) and B). Here are some guidelines: If your machine is infected with Norton, get rid of it. use Malwarebytes Assign 4 times the amount of RAM you actually have for Virtual memory. Keep at least 20% of the hard drive free. ( By the way, space assigned for virtual memory is NOT free space! Add that amount to the USED space number.) Run Spybot-Search&Destroy, then use it's advanced tools to lock out whatever you can from the start-up. Start up all the cutesy stuff manually, IF and when you actually need it. Run a high quality defragmenter like DisKeeper automatically whenever the screensaver comes on. Don't count on the Windows defragmenter. It does not work right in XP.

One way to save time is to organize your shopping list by location. This is useful if you send a family member to do the shopping, they won't have to wander around looking for items. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Cookie for this great tip: GREAT SAFETY IDEA : Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you turn it off! It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break in your house, odds are the burglar or rapist won't stick around. After a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. ---------- You need a vehicle 10 years newer than mine, but theoretically, it is an excellent idea.

_____________________________________________________ A lady's husband dies. She heads to the funeral home to make arrangements. She's emphatic that the arrangements must be done with elegance, and attention to detail. "For example," she tells the funeral director, "I want no wooden chairs. Only padded ones. All the comforts possible to be extended to the mourners. Have the air conditioning set to a perfect 72 degrees. The flowers should be beautiful, yet not overpowering in their scent." The funeral director takes it all down. The day of the funeral the widow is examining the viewing room. She notices that the funeral director has not yet turned on the air conditioner. She orders the director to turn it on so that when the viewing starts, the room will be a perfect temperature. As soon as the air conditioner is on, though, she notices her deceased husband's hairpiece is flapping in the breeze caused by the air conditioner. "This won't do!" She orders the director to take care of the problem. He assures her that he will take care of it, if she'll just wait in the outer office for ten minutes. She leaves and comes back after exactly 600 seconds. Sure enough, her husband's hair is all in place. A month later, the widow is reviewing the bill for the funeral and she notices there was no charge for the hair problem. She calls to inquire as to why. She's told that it was "on the house." "Nonsense," she retorts, "you expended time and materials and I will compensate you for it. Now, give me a price!" "Ok, madam", the funeral director wearily agrees. He holds the phone away and hollers across the room, "Hey, Charlie, how much did that nail cost to put that toupee in place last month?" _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Thomas Tramaglini, 42, Matawan, New Jersey Superintendent Charged With Pooping On Holmdel Track All the Holmdel High track team wanted to know was who was pooping either on or near the track and football field on a near-daily basis. Who has been relieving themselves on an almost daily basis on the Holmdel High School athletic fields? It turns out it was the superintendent of the Kenilworth school district, Thomas Tramaglini, allege Holmdel police. All the Holmdel High School track team wanted to know was who was pooping either on or near the track and football field. Students and coaches said they would find human feces on an almost daily basis. The Holmdel school resource officer was alerted to the problem, and started quietly monitoring the area every morning. "I don't know if it was daily, but it's been going on for a while. I heard it was at least eight times in the past few months," said someone within the Holmdel community, who wanted to stay anonymous. Tramaglini, 42, a Matawan resident, with a carefully trimmed masculinity prothesis (teen ager's wanna-be beard) was arrested and charged with the bizarre crime. He was charged with lewdness, littering and defecating in public. According to NJ.com he was arrested at 5:50 a.m. this past Monday, April 30. His home is only a few miles away from the high school. Tramaglini is the superintendent of the Kenilworth school district, and also lectures part time at Rutgers, in their graduate-level education classes. After his arrest, he requested he take a paid leave of absence from his $147,504-a-year job. Kenilworth schools announced the news on their Facebook page late Wednesday night. "Earlier today, we learned of municipal court charges facing our current superintendent of schools in Holmdel, NJ," read the somber statement. "Given the nature of those charges, he asked for and was granted a paid leave of absence." Before he was hired to oversee Kenilworth's schools, Tramaglini was the PreK-12 Chief Academic Officer of the Keansburg School District. He is also a part-time lecturer at the Rutgers University Graduate School of Education. He started out as a middle school and high school teacher. According to state law, a leave can only be unpaid if the superintendent is indicted, or faced with tenured charges. Brian Luciani, Kenilworth's director of academics, has been named as the acting superintendent of schools. Tramaglini was due in Holmdel municipal court Monday morning, May 7 to answer to the charges, but that date has been pushed back and rescheduled, police told Patch. His case has been rescheduled to May 30 at 10:00 a.m. In the meantime, he gets full pay.

Thanks to Kati for this story: Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven. When they get there, St. Peter says, "We only have one rule here in heaven: don't step on the ducks!" So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one. Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw. St. Peter chains them together and says, "Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!" The next day, the second woman steps accidentally on a duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn't miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman. The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful where she steps. She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St. Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on .....very tall, long eyelashes, muscular, and thin. St. Peter chains them together without saying a word. The happy woman says, "I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity?" The guy says, "I don't know about you, but I stepped on a duck!"

"Does this fellow have any distinguishing features?" the officer asks. "Well, yes," the barber replies. "He's carrying one of his ears in his left hand."

A pastor was giving the children's message during church. For this part of the service, he would gather all the children around him and give a brief lesson before dismissing them for children's church. On this particular Sunday, he was using squirrels for an object lesson on industry and preparation. He started out by saying, "I'm going to describe something, and I want you to raise your hand when you know what it is." The children nodded eagerly. "This thing lives in trees (pause) and eats nuts (pause)..." No hands went up. "And it is gray (pause) and has a long bushy tail (pause)..." The children were looking at each other, but still no hands raised. "And it jumps from branch to branch (pause) and chatters and flips its tail when it's excited (pause)..." Finally one little boy tentatively raised his hand. The pastor breathed a sigh of relief and called on him. "Well," said the boy, "I *know* the answer must be Jesus ... but it sure sounds like a squirrel to me!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Nylon Stocking For Soap Keep bath soap in an old panty hose leg in the bathtub.

Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Darryl and Harold were in a mental institution. The place had an unusual annual contest, picking two of the best patients and giving them two questions. If they got them correct, they were deemed cured and free to go. Darryl was called into the doctor's office first and asked if he understood that he'd be free if he answered the questions correctly. Darryl said "yes" and the doctor proceeded. "Darryl, what would happen if I poked out one of your eyes?" Darryl said, "I'd be half blind." "That's correct. What if I poked out both eyes?" "I'd be completely blind." The doctor stood up, shook Darryl's hand, and told him he was free to go. On Darryl's way out, as the doctor filled out the paperwork, Darryl mentioned the exam to Harold, who was seated in the waiting room. He told him what questions were going to be asked and gave him the answers. So Harold went into the doctor's office when he was called. The doctor went thru the formalities and then asked, "What would happen if I cut off one of your ears?" Remembering what Darryl had told him, he answered, "I'd be half blind." The doctor looked a little puzzled, but went on. "What if I cut off the other ear?" "I'd be completely blind," Harold answered." "Harold, can you explain how you'd be blind?" "My hat would fall down over my eyes."

___________________________________________________ Thanks to SeaBaby for this story: A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat, and was very much in favor of "the redistribution of wealth." She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch member of the other party, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to avoid sharing what he had accumulated. One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the addition of more government welfare programs. The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking how she was doing in school. Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college friends because she spent all her time studying. Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey doing?" She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy classes, she never studies, and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all the parties, and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes because she's too hung over." Her wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA." The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired back, "That wouldn't be fair! I have worked really hard for my grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail off!" The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, "Welcome to my party." ___________________________________________________

Justin James Rutley, 30, was charged with indecent exposure, masturbating in public, and disorderly conduct in connection with the April 30th incident near Anne E. Moncure Elementary School, according to WTVR. Deputies were called to the area at about 9:38 that morning when people spotted Rutley stuck in the fence and masturbating near school property, according to deputies. "Upon arrival, the deputy noticed that the suspect’s legs were stuck in the fence and he had no clothes on. The suspect was covered head to toe in scratches from the thickets in the area where he was located," Stafford County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Amanda Vicinanzo said. "The deputy helped remove the suspect from the fence and covered him in a blanket." Rutley appeared nervous, according to investigators, and made incoherent statements. Deputies recognized his behavior as being consistent with drug use, Vicinanzo said. "The deputy learned several employees in the school had observed the suspect near the fence," Vicinanzo said. "In addition, one witness came forward to report that he had seen the man masturbating while stuck in the fence." Rutley was jailed at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
Tech Support Pits From: Jeannie Re: Extended characters on laptop Dear Webby, Is there a way to use hot keys/key codes on a laptop without using a separate keyboard? I tried a number pad but that didn’t work. Thanks! Jeannie Dear Jeannie You'll have to hit the NUM-LOCK key first to activate the numeric keypad. Yeah, I know it's a real nuisance on many laptops, even just to find where they hit the silly NUM-LOCK key and what wacko symbol they used for it. Personally, I hate laptop keyboards and always take a regular keyboard along when I travel. Measure your carry-on or suitcase first before you buy a travel keyboard, unless you get one of the flexible indestructible keyboards. That one you can just drape over the laptop right in a normal or backpack carry case, or use as a high fashion shawl. I use a back-pack carry-case for my laptop. It makes running through large airports a lot easier and I am not dragging my knuckles on the floor afterwards. If you are interested in the flexible indestructible keyboard, you can get them from GrandTec at http://www.grandtec.com/vik.htm for $19 - $25 In HTML it's easy, there you can just use &#, the number and a semi-colon: for example &# and 169 plus a ; makes the copyright sign © Have FUN DearWebby

___________________________________________________ *How Government Works* Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said "someone may steal from it at night." So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job. Then Congress said, "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies. Then Congress said, "How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One to do the studies and one to write the reports. Then Congress said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So they created the following positions, a time keeper, and a payroll officer, then hired two people. Then Congress said, "Who will be accountable for all of these people?" So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary. Then Congress said, "We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $2.8 Million over budget, we must cut back overall cost." So they laid off the night watchman. ___________________________________________________

The Irishman thinks for a moment and says, "I'm feeling a might thirsty, I think I'll be wishing for a pint of stout." POOF! There is a pint of stout in his hand. He drinks it down, and starts to throw the bottle, when the genie says, "I'd look at that bottle again before I threw it if I were you." So he looks at the bottle, and it is magically filling back up with stout. The genie told him, "That is a magic bottle, and it will always fill back up after you finish it." The genie then asked, "What other two wishes can I grant for you?"

Investigators arrested 40-year-old Sharron Dobbins, of Phoenix, Sunday morning and booked her into jail on a felony child abuse charge, according to Maricopa County court documents. Dobbins is accused of using the stun gun on her 16-year-old son’s left leg. “Ms. Dobbins stated that she only sparked the Taser to get the kids up for church on Easter and that she never Tased anyone,” the arresting officer wrote in an arrest report obtained by KPHO. Another of Dobbins’ sons, 17, and an 18-year-old nephew witnessed the incident, according to the document. The 16-year-old did not complain of any pain but had two small bumps on his leg where Dobbins allegedly shocked him. Dobbins, who appeared in court and was ordered not to have any contact with her sons, said that both of her sons are on probation. “He has an ankle bracelet on,” Dobbins said of the 16-year-old. “He’s under my custody and everything.” Dobbins said she would make arrangements for the boy to live elsewhere as she awaits her next hearing on April 16. Dobbins was released to pre-trial services on her own recognizance.
Tech Support Pits From: Toby Re: Clickbook Dear Webby, Have some questions about ClickBook printing. When I print the type size is so small I can hardly read it, and when I go to No Scaling, all the sentence is not printed. I cannot find any information on CB help. I know this will reduce the paper saving option, but it will be printed in a more favorable format. Thanks for your daily read. Keep up the good work. Toby Dear Toby Definitely don't use "No Scaling" ! I normally use Side-by-side, folded. Most e-books are formatted so that they wind up with the same font size as regular, store-bought paperback books when printed with ClickBook. (all the Pro's use it.) It has been quite a few years since I had to rip and reformat an e-book. If it is your own writing, for e-books (and anything that is to be printed front and back 4 pages per sheet), use font size 14. Arial, Tahoma and Verdana are the easiest readable fonts. Right now my printer is just a-rocking on the rather flexible snack cart, that it sits on, printing out an 88 page e-book on 22 sheets of paper. Quite readable even though I had left the printer in toner-saving mode. Have FUN DearWebby
Thanks to Roland for this story: When I was married 25 years, I took a look at my wife one day and said, "Honey, 25 years ago, we had a cheap apartment, a cheap car, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 25-year-old blonde." "Now, we have a nice house, nice car, big bed and plasma screen TV, but I'm sleeping with a 50-year-old woman. It seems to me that you are not holding up your side of things." My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 25-year-old blonde, and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10-inch black and white TV.

Thanks to Martin for this story: Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given their new wives duties. The first man had married a woman from Connecticut. He bragged that he had told his wife she was going to do all the dishes and house cleaning that needed done at their house. He said that it took a couple days but on the third day he came home to a clean house and the dishes were all washed and put away. The second man had married a woman from Iowa. He bragged that he had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes, and the cooking. He told them that the first day he didn't see any results, but the next day it was better. By the third day, his house was clean, the dishes were done, and he had a huge dinner on the table. The third man had married a Georgia girl. He boasted that he told her that her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything ... The second day he didn't see anything, but by the third day most of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye. Enough to fix himself a bite to eat, load the dishwasher, and telephone a landscaper. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Stubborn Drawers and Doors When dirt and dust builds up on drawer and sliding door runners, they can become squeaky and tough to open and shut. To fix this, rub a bar of soap or a piece of paraffin wax on the runners. This will act as lubrication and allow the runners to slide smoothly. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com If the runners or sliders are teflon or nylon, clean them with a tough kitchen sponge and clean, hot dishwater. They work best when perfectly clean. If necessary, use windex to remove old wax or soap. Wax or soap should only be used on bare wooden runners. Have FUN! Dear Webby ____________________________________________________ Laura's husband, Ron, was called into his bank to discuss his accounts. "Your finances are in terrible shape," the banker stated. "Your checking account is overdrawn, your loan is overdue." "Yes, I know." said Ron. "It's my wife Laura, she is out of control." "Why do you allow your wife to spend more money than you have?" asked the banker. "Frankly," replied Ron with a deep sigh, "because I'd rather argue with you than with her."

His eyes fluttered open and he said, "You're beautiful." Then he fell asleep again. His wife had never heard him say that before, so she stayed by his side. A few minutes later his eyes fluttered open and he said, "You're cute." The wife was disappointed because instead of "beautiful," it was now "cute." She asked, "What happened to beautiful?" The man replied, "The drugs are wearing off." ___________________________________________________

Thanks to Martin for this story: Priceless, even though it's a classic TAIL GATING: A man was being tailgated by a stressed out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection. The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup. As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, finger printed, photographed, and placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects. He said, "I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him. "I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' License plate holder, the 'Follow Me to Sunday- School' bumper Sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, Naturally... I had to assume you had stolen the car."

How many existentialists does it take to screw in a light bulb? Two: One to screw it in and one to observe how the light bulb itself symbolizes a single incandescent beacon of subjective reality in a nether world of endless absurdity reaching out toward a cosmos of nothingness. How many Orthodox Rabbis does it take to change a light bulb? Change? How many feminists does it take to change a light bulb? That's not funny! How many cops does it take to screw in a light bulb?

First, mom checks three books on electricity out of the library, then the kids make models of light bulbs, read a biography of Thomas Edison and do a skit based on his life. Next, everyone studies the history of lighting methods, wrapping up with dipping their own candles. Next, everyone takes a trip to the store where they compare types of light bulbs as well as prices and figure out how much change they'll get if they buy two bulbs for $1.99 and pay with a five dollar bill. On the way home, a discussion develops over the history of money and also Abraham Lincoln, as his picture is on the five dollar bill. Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed. And there is light.

When Diane found out she was pregnant, she told the good news to anyone who would listen. But her 4-year-old overheard some of her parents' private conversations. One day when Diane and her 4-year-old were shopping a woman asked the little girl if she was excited about the new baby. "Oh, yes!" the 4-year-old said, "and I know what we are going to name it. If it's a girl we're going to call her Christina, and if it's a boy we're going to call it quits!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Labeling Leftovers When you bring leftover food home from a restaurant, write the date on the outside of the box (or bag) with a large pen. Write on the side of the box (or bag) so you can easily see the date when you look in the fridge. This works as a reminder that you need to eat the leftovers. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Calling in sick to work makes me uncomfortable. No matter how legitimate my illness, I always sense my boss thinks I am lying. On one occasion, I had a valid reason, but lied anyway because the truth was too humiliating. I simply mentioned that I had sustained a head injury and I hoped I would feel up to coming in the next day. By then, I could think up a dozy to explain the bandage on my crown. The accident occurred mainly because I conceded to my wife's wishes to adopt a cute little kitty. Initially the new acquisition was no problem, but one morning I was taking my shower after breakfast when I heard my wife, Deb, call out to me from the kitchen. "Ed! the garbage disposal is dead. Come reset it." "You know where the button is." I protested through the shower (pitter-patter). "Reset it yourself!" "I am scared!" She pleaded "What if it starts going and sucks me in?" (Pause) "C'mon, it'll only take a second." So out I came, dripping wet and butt naked, hoping to make a statement about how her cowardly behavior was not without consequence. I crouched down and stuck my head under the sink to find the button. It is the last action I remember performing. It struck without warning, without respect to my circumstances. Nay, it wasn't a hexed disposal drawing me into its gnashing metal teeth. It was our new kitty, clawing playfully at the dangling objects she spied between my legs. She had been poised around the corner and stalked me as I took the bait under the sink. At precisely the second I was most vulnerable, she leapt at the toys I unwittingly offered and snagged them with her needle-like claws. Now when men feel pain or even sense danger anywhere close to their masculine region, they lose all rational thought to control orderly bodily movements. Instinctively, their nerves compel the body to contort inwardly, while rising upwardly at a violent rate of speed. Not even a well trained monk could calmly stand with his groin supporting the full weight of a kitten and rectify the situation in a step-by-step manner. Wild animals are sometimes faced with a "fight or flight" syndrome. Men, in this predicament, choose only the "flight" option. Fleeing straight up, I knew at that moment how a cat feels when it is alarmed. It was a dismal irony. But, whereas cats seek great heights to escape, I never made it that far. The sink and cabinet bluntly impeded my ascent; the impact knocked me out cold. When I awoke, my wife and the paramedics stood over me. Having been fully briefed by my wife, the paramedics snorted as they tried to conduct their work while suppressing their hysterical laughter. At the office, colleagues tried to coax an explanation out of me. I kept silent, claiming it was too painful to talk. "What's the matter, cat got your tongue?" If they had only known.

Good Morning, ,
Today is Wednesday, May 2

We goy our first rain in 2018!
Just 1/2", but it blackened the roads.
If this keeps up, I'll be dusting off the lawn mower before
the end of May.

I re-connected the hose to the rain barrel, and laid it out
to the raspberries. Soon they will sprout little leaves and
I can cut the old, dead vines out.
It is a pretty good guess that the worst part of winter is over.

Have FUN!

"See, you're getting smarter already." _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joseph Barreto, 24, Hartford, Connecticut Chase leads to Hartford crash and capture of wanted man A dramatic early morning chase through the streets of Hartford's south end on Saturday ended in a crash, and the capture of a man wanted by police since another crash that happened in February. According to Hartford Police Dept. spokesman Lt. Paul Cicero, at about 7:30 Saturday morning police and fire personnel were called to the area of New Britain Avenue and Zion Street for a report of person in a parked car who might have been in medical distress. When they got there, police said the driver woke up, and took off in the car. As he did, he hit a Hartford Fire Department truck, but continued west on New Britain Avenue until he hit a utility pole and then crashed into an unoccupied house off Nepaug Street. The driver had leg injuries and was taken into custody and given medical care. A gun was found in the car. When police identified the driver, they knew why he fled. Joseph Barreto, 24, was wanted in connection with a deadly car crash on February 19 at the intersection of Ward and Zion streets. Police believe that Barreto was driving a car stolen out of New Britain, ran a red light causing a fatal accident, and then ran away. Barreto was also wanted for a seperate incident, a shooting, on Tuesday. The charges from those previous incidents include first-degree criminal attempted assault, unlawful discharge of a firearm, second- degree manslaughter, and other charges. He is being held in lieu of $750,000 bail.
Tech Support Pits From: Renee Re: Camera tripod bolt Dear Webby, You mentioned it once before a few years ago, but I forgot. What type of special bolt is used on a tripod to hold the camera? I don't have a tripod, but I want to use a stepladder for taking the Christmas pictures. I have an older Canon G2 with a remote control key-fob, if that makes a difference. Renee Dear Renee It makes no difference. All cameras use the common 1/4" coarse (1/4" x 20) bolt, no matter where the camera was made. The trick is to use a long bolt and a wing nut, with the wings facing towards the bolt head. Stick the bolt through a hole in a ladder step. Turn the bolt just barely finger tight into the camera, then tighten the wing nut below the step. Gently! Better than bolting the camera to your ladder, bolt it to a big alligator clamp, like they are used for welding cables or automotive jumper cables. That gives you as many ways to adjust and aim the camera as a tripod. Have FUN DearWebby
Bambi, a young cutie sidled up to a guest at the party. She had heard him addressed as doctor and now she said diffidently, "doctor, may I ask a question?" "Certainly," he said. "Lately," said Bambi, "I have been having a funny pain right here over the heart..." The guest interrupted uncomfortably and said, "I'm terribly sorry, Bambi, but the truth is, I'm a doctor of philosophy." "Oh," said Bambi, "I'm sorry!" She turned away, but then overcome with curiosity, she turned back. "Just one more question, doctor. Tell me, what kind of disease is philosophy?"

A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, rocks about 2" in diameter. He then asked the students if the jar was full? They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous -- yes. The professor then produced two cans of beer from under the table and proceeded to pour their entire contents into the jar -- effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. "Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the important things - your family, your partner, your health, your children--things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else. The small stuff." "If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued "there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal. "Take care of the rocks first -- the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand." One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the beer represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of beers."

James White, 48, and Jason Lydiard, 26, also known as Alexis Guesto, were spotted in south Armagh, Northern Ireland, by people who recognised them from police appeals. White and Lydiard, both convicted paedophiles, were spotted in footage shared on social media with their hands tied behind their backs, having been covered in paint. Police said they had sustained injuries in the arrest and had been taken to hospital for treatment, as they warned against ‘vigilante justice’. Detective Chief Inspector Jill Duffie, from PSNI Public Protection Branch, said: ‘I understand that feelings in the area have been running high over the search for these men, however, there can never be an excuse for violence or people taking the law into their own hands. ‘We will be investigating the assault and working to identify anyone involved.’ Concerned residents raised the alarm on Thursday when a blue Peugeot 206 the pair had been travelling in was found with all four of its tyres slashed outside a church. Both men were wanted for a range of offences, including breach of license and warrants, with police making a widespread appeal for help tracking them down.
Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: Camera Batteries Dear Webby, I really enjoy your humor. It is so nice to read good clean jokes & nice pics. I have a question about camera batteries. I have an inexpensive Kodak digital camera & use rechageable batteries in it. Later this year I plan to fly to Calif. I will of course be taking the camera. I plan to pack it in my checked baggage. What I am curious about is it better to take the batteries out of the camera before packing? Also should I do the same w/ the memory card. Thanks for your help. Sharon Dear Sharon The planes they use nowadays are much faster than the stage coach and your flight to California is not going to take much longer than your usual trips to the mall. Don't worry about the batteries or the memory chip. If you take along a bag full of spare batteries, definitely put them into the checked luggage, along with everything else that might look suspicious on the X-ray. Anything that has an ON/OFF switch shold be securely taped in the OFF position. Luggage is NOT handled gently, and all the stories about electric devices miraculously turning themselves on and causing a lot of embarrassment are not jokes. If there is ANY sound coming from your suitcase, you have to unpack it while surrounded by security guards with explosive shields and drawn guns pointed at you. It even happened to my nephew, when rough luggage handling in Vancouver turned his battery powered razor on.

When she got home she asks her husband, "What is a specimen?" He replies," Heck if I know. Go next door and ask Edith. She's a nurse." The woman goes next door and comes back in about twenty minutes with her clothes all torn and with multiple cuts and bruises on her face and body. "What in the world happened?" asked her husband. "Damned if I know," she replies. "I asked Edith what a specimen was, and she told me to go piss in a bottle. I told her to go shit in her hat, and then all hell broke loose!"
___________________________________________________ Most people assume WWJD is for "What would Jesus do?" But the initials really stand for "What would Jesus drive?" One theory is that Jesus would tool around in an old Plymouth because "the Bible says God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden in a Fury." But in Psalm 83, the Almighty clearly owns a Pontiac and a Geo. The passage urges the Lord to "pursue your enemies with your Tempest and terrify them with your Storm." Perhaps God favors Dodge pickup trucks, because Moses' followers are warned not to go up a mountain "until the Ram's horn sounds a long blast." Some scholars insist that Jesus drove a Honda but didn't like to talk about it. As proof, they cite a verse in St. John's gospel where Christ tells the crowd, "For I did not speak of my own Accord..." Meanwhile, Moses rode an old British motorcycle, as evidenced by a Bible passage declaring that "the roar of Moses' Triumph is heard in the hills." Joshua drove a Triumph sports car with a hole in its muffler: "Joshua's Triumph was heard throughout the land." And, following the Master's lead, the Apostles car pooled in a Honda..."The Apostles were in one Accord." ___________________________________________________

Stanley Skupien claimed another man’s medal after running the final two miles of London Marathon Stanley Skupien, 38, who sleeps rough at Heathrow Airport, told the Sun that crossing the finish line was a ‘dream come true’. Runner Jake Halliday lost his race number after he hit 24 miles, and despite only have a few more miles to go he was unable to finish without it. Jake, 28, from Edinburgh, was disqualified after raising £48,000 for blood cancer charity Bloodwise. Stanley told the publication: ‘I saw the number face-up in the middle of the road. I knew if I had one I would get a medal – my heart leaped, it was a dream come true. I had no thoughts of the person whose number it was.’ He said he was in tears when a woman put the medal around his neck and told min ‘well done.’ Stanley added: ‘It was my biggest moment ever.’ A Facebook post by Peter Mowbray caught the ‘cheat’ after spotting the official finish line photos of Stanley wearing Jake’s number. He wrote: ‘I couldn’t believe this so we went on the Virgin London Marathon website and you can clearly see Jake’s number and you can clearly see the pictures of Jake are completely different to the guy with his number at the end. ‘To see this man smiling and postulating with someone else’s medal made me personally very very angry. I felt very sick at first.’ Stanley, a Polish-born builder, said he ‘feels bad for Jake’. He was arrested at Heathrow on Tuesday on an unrelated theft charge. A London Marathon spokesman said: ‘We are aware a man was arrested at Heathrow. We are now awaiting further information.’
Tech Support Pits From: Renate Re: Bulk delete Gmails Dear Webby, My Gmail is close to locking up. I am at 99%. Gmail doesn't have any function to delete entire years. They say it would lock up their servers. I am sure you have a trick to go around that! What do I do? Renate Dear Renate There IS a way around their restrictions, but it is not easy. First, make some hot keys in Gmail. Go into settings, Keyboard shortcuts and make ` a shortcut for Select All on the page Yes `, the key to the left of the 1 Then make the 1 the shortcut for "Delete Selected". Those 2 will be your power tools. Then set the number of mails per page to 100. You can't go higher, somebody is worried you would lock up their servers. Now dump the TRASH and the SPAM folder. You are never going to look at them anyway. OK, now paste this into the search line on top: before:2016/01/01 (You can, of course, use any date as the deadline) Next hover over the "1-100 of many" button and select "Oldest" You may have to play with that a bit. Now you see the mail that is from before 2016. 100 of them anyway. If the mails that show are not from before 2016, then you missed a step. Once you see the mails from before 2016, hit your left power tool. ` 100 mails are selected. Now hit the second power tool: "1" Those selected mails are gone. It will take a while, when you have nearly 15 GB of mail, but it will work. Now just toggle between ` and 1 Each time you hit ` a hundred mails are selected, and when you hit 1, those are dumped. This finger exercise is perfect for when you are on the phone, or if your cyber lover is a slow typist. After each session, dump the trash. Your finger exercises just re- assign the location of the mails from INBOX to TRASH. They are still there, just their cap has been turned backwards. Dumping the trash gets rid of them. You will soon have plenty of elbow room in your Gmail. Have FUN DearWebby Thanks to Ross for this story: Two Jewish men, Sid and Al, were sitting in a Mexican restaurant. Sid asked Al, "Are there any people of our faith born and raised in Mexico?" Al replied, "I don't know, let's ask our waiter." When the waiter came by, Al asked him, "Are there any Mexican Jews?" and the waiter said, "I don't know Senor, I'll ask the cooks." He returned from the kitchen in a few minutes and said "No sir, no Mexican Jews." Al wasn't really satisfied with that and asked, "Are you absolutely sure?" The waiter, realizing he was dealing with "Gringos" gave the expected answer, "I will check again, Senor!" and went back into the kitchen. While the waiter was away, Sid said, "I find it hard to believe that there are no Jews in Mexico. Our people are scattered everywhere." The waiter returned and said "Senor, the head cook said there is no Mexican Jews." "Are you certain?" Al asked once again. "I can't believe there are no Mexican Jews!" "Senor, I ask EVERYONE," replied the exasperated waiter, "All we have is Orange Jews, Prune Jews, Tomato Jews, and Grape Jews."

A young man who wants to see the world signs on to a tramp steamer to be trained as a helmsman. He masters the classroom instruction, then starts his practical training on the wheel of the vessel. In his first lesson, the mate gives him a heading, and the young fellow holds to it. Then the mate orders, "Come starboard." Pleased at knowing immediately which way starboard is, the young man leaves the helm and walks over to his instructor. The mate has an incredulous look on his face as the helm swings freely. Then, rather gently considering the circum- stance, he asks politely, "Could you bring the ship with you?"

Maxine, the platinum blonde, reported for her final examination which consisted of Yes / No answers. She took her seat in the examination hall, stared at the question paper, and then in a bit of inspiration, took a quarter out of her purse. She started tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet "Yes" for heads and "N" for tails. Within 30 minutes she was all done whereas the rest of the class was still sweating it out. During the last few minutes of the exam period, Maxine frantically started flipping the coin again. The moderator, concerned about what she was doing, stopped by her desk and asked if she was ok. "Oh yes, I'm fine. I finished the exam a half hour ago--but," explaining the frantic coin tossing, "I'm going back through and checking my answers!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Online Resources For Driving Directions If you have an appointment somewhere that you haven't been before, use a free online website like http://mapquest.com or http://maps.google.com to get driving directions. You can enter your starting location, your destination and get step by step directions, including a map. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com NEVER check for shortest distance! Always check for shortest time. A shortest distance route will often zigzag you trough a busy downtown with thousands of stop signs and traffic lights and you could waste a day getting through Phoenix, Az, for example. The fastest route will be a few miles more, but without a single stop sign. Also check the highway reports for the area and then take a zoomed out overview and apply common sense. You may decide to add a midway point to drag the route away from an area with lots of construction. Half an hour on the net can save you a lot of aggravation and gas and time. Once I have my route nailed down, I usually print it with ClickBook in 4 page per sheet paperback book size. Especially on a long trip, a neat little booklet is a lot easier to use than a stack of full size loose sheets. By the way, you don't need a special printer for that. Any printer will do. All you need is the ClickBook program. Highly recommended! I also use it to print out e-books in paperback size front and back printed. Saves a lot on paper and ink and makes nice, compact booklets. ____________________________________________________ >From Rosie My kindergarten-aged daughter suddenly announced just before school that she needed to take a clean tee shirt to class. She told us the teacher was going to iron an anti-drug message on it. My wife frantically swept through my daughter's room, finding nothing usable but one tee shirt that already had something printed on one side. She sent it off to school with my daughter. That afternoon, my daughter returned and happily showed off her shirt. On one side it said, "Families are Forever." And on the other, "Be Smart, Don't Start."
Concrete patch gone wrong.
___________________________________________________ Arthur was sitting outside his local pub one day, enjoying a quiet pint and generally feeling good about himself, when a nun suddenly appears at his table and starts decrying the evils of drink. "You should be ashamed of yourself young man! Drinking is a Sin! Alcohol is the blood of the devil!" Now Arthur gets pretty annoyed about this, and goes on the offensive. "How do *you* know, Sister?" "My Mother Superior told me so" "But have you ever had a drink yourself? How can you be sure that what you are saying is right?" "Don't be ridiculous - of course I have never taken alcohol myself" "Then let me buy you a drink - if you still believe afterwards that it is evil, I will give up drinking for life" "How could I, a Nun, sit outside this public house drinking?!" "I'll get the barman to put it in a teacup for you, then no-one will know" The Nun reluctantly agrees, so Arthur goes inside to the bar. "Another pint for me, and a triple Southern Comfort on the rocks", then he lowers his voice and says to the barman "... and could you put the Southern Comfort in a teacup?" "Oh no! Is that the mayor dressed up as a Nun again, is she?" ___________________________________________________

A court in England has sentenced Timothy Hill, 67, to eight months in prison after he was caught using an illegal laser jammer to avoid speeding tickets. While investigating him for the infraction, the 67-year-old was spotted behind the wheel of his Range Rover while giving the middle finger to mobile traffic cameras on three separate occasions, SWNS reports. “If you want to attract our attention, repeatedly gesturing at police camera vans with your middle finger while you’re driving a distinctive car fitted with a laser jammer is an excellent way to do it,” the head of traffic enforcement for North Yorkshire said after the sentencing. Hill initially denied the accusations against him, but later fessed up after admitting he’d thrown the device into a river in an attempt to avoid prosecution. He pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice, but wasn’t charged with speeding since the jammer prevented police from determining how fast he was driving.

The port will change to 995. Click OK. Click OK. Click Close. To convert analog tapes to digital data, you need to play them, and record them digitally. The rude and crude way for that is to lay your computer microphone on top of your tape player's speaker, and use a program like Audacity to record it and save it as MP3 or MP4. If your tape player has a head set socket, you can connect a patch cord (male on both ends) from there to the AUX IN socket on your computer. (The blue one) That way you eliminate outside noises and get a much cleaner recording. Most recorder programs have at least some basic equalizer and filter functions that allow you to clip the crackle and pop which is quite common on tape recordings, and you wind up with better quality than you started out with. Same as with a tape recorder, you can patch other devices to the AUX IN, like for example a record player, CD player, radio and even electronic instruments. Have FUN DearWebby Groan Alert! There once was a church meeting where the topic was "Burial or Cremation?" Two of the people got rather worked up.

God and Men's Sex Lives When the good Lord was making the world, he called Man aside and bestowed upon him 20 years of normal sex life. Man was horrified, but the Creator refused to budge. Then the Lord called the Monkey and gave him 20 years. "But I don't need 20 years," said the Monkey. "Ten years is plenty." "May I have the other 10 years?" asked Man. The Monkey agreed. The Lord called the Lion next and also gave him 20 good years. The Lion also only wanted 10, so again Man asked for the remaining ten. Then came the Donkey, who was also granted 20 years. Like the others, 10 was more than enough. Man again asked for the spare ten years and got them. This explains why Man has 20 years of normal sex life, 10 years of monkeying around, 10 years of lion 'bout it, and 10 years of making an ass out of himself.

Good Morning, ,
Today is Saturday, April 28

Will rogers's famous quote:"there's no trick to being a humorist
when you have the whole government working for you.", is obsolete.
The left wing alone is mopre than enough.

The official witch hunt is winding down and as stale as obama's fake
birth certificate, so now broom hilda's hog claims that putin is
funding the nra. 

He might be a good hypnotist and some day follow in al gore's and
obama's footsteps, but right now one wonders what the hell is that
kid smoking! Whatever it is, it should be illegal, if it isn't
already. 

Putin is not, I repat, not, interested in an armed america.
It's not that he plans to attack and take alaska back, he is
concerned about his peons wanting to be as armed as the americans.

While putin might have joked over a beer or two about messing with
elections and encouraging assange to release broom hilda's dirty
laundry, same as most likely some of trump's downliners did, none of
them actually did anything about it.

The way broom hilda was messing up, they did not have to do
anything.

Sure, putin needs trump to make america great again, not broom hilda
causing a depression. Putin wants a cold war with a worthy and
credible oponent in order to scare his tax payers, not a whiny
socialist that the rest of the world snickers about. Luckily she put
her feet into her mouth often enough, and the people were fed up
with the lame stream media and voted against the media. 

The same happened in the gore/bush race. The lame stream media
predicted that the socialist hypnotist would win by a big margin.
Well, the people were fed up with that and voted against the media.
So bubba, the cowboy with the classy wife, got into the white house.

This time we have archie bunker jr with the classy wife.

"In back, there are 25 Coast Guard enlistees. What would you do?" _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Savannah Lee Storie, 24, Jacksonville, Florida Florida woman accused of reckless driving, DUI in interstate construction zone A Jacksonville woman faces multiple charges, including a DUI, after police say she tried to speed through an active construction zone site early Tuesday. At approximately 12:15 a.m., an officer was conducting a rolling road block at a construction zone at I-95 northbound at University Boulevard when a white four-door car passed all traffic, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. The car, which was being driven in the inside emergency lane, had passed three police cars with their emergency equipment activated, the report said. The officer reported the vehicle traveling at 60 mph as it passed patrol vehicles, and then accelerating to 100 mph in the 45 mph construction zone as it pulled away from the road block. According to the officer, the driver was speeding toward construction workers. The officer began to pursue the car. The report said the car accelerated to 110 mph as the officer pursued the driver. The car stopped because construction equipment was blocking the road. The officer approached the car and opened a door to find the woman, identified as 24-year-old Savannah Lee Storie, sitting in the driver's seat, the report said. The officer told Storie to turn off the engine, but he noted that she stared blankly at him. Storie was told to get out but she reportedly did not comply. The officer tried to pull Storie out of the car twice by her wrist but she pulled away, according to the report. The woman broke free of the officer's grip, put the car in drive and started driving toward construction workers, the officer reported. The officer reached into her car to put it into park. She hit the gas while the officer grabbed the ignition key and turned off the car. The car rolled to a stop on the right shoulder. The officer removed her from the car, and told her to get on the ground, but she did not comply. He had to put the woman in a total appendage restraint in order to arrest her. The officer said he could smell a strong alcoholic odor coming from her breath. While in custody, the woman reportedly banged her head several times in order to hurt herself, and was taken to UF Health. Storie was booked without being present. Storie faces charges of resisting an officer with violence, reckless driving, unlawful speeding, driving under the influence and driving a vehicle without wearing a safety belt.
Tech Support Pits From: Ruby Re: Spam Epidemic Dear Webby, Have you noticed that there is a real spam epidemic going on? 90% of my mail is spam, and it's driving me nuts! How does a company like yours deal with it? And why isn't anybody doing something about it? Ruby Dear Ruby No, I haven't noticed that. You see, I live a very simple and sheltered life. One of my shelters is MailWasher. I just see the 120 - 200 mails that I need to see and answer. I don't really give a hoot about how or which way Mailwasher dumps the other 4800 - 5000 mails every day, but I know that they are reported to the FireTrust spam database. The reason nobody in the US is doing anything against spam is because the spammers bought your Senate and financed the CAN SPAM act, and so they are nicely protected. Just look at the courts in Illinois trying to fine Spamhaus, a European blacklisting service $12 Million. US law protects the spammers and you get fined if you try to fight them. Luckily, Spamhaus is in England, and told the Illinois courts where to stuff their pro-spammer ruling. They don't have laws to protect the spammers in England. The same goes for New Zealand, where MailWasher and FireTrust are hiding out, safely out of reach of the CAN-SPAM spammer protection act. Unless you can rent more senators than the spammers have, all I can recommend is that you get MailWasher, and let it nuke the spam right on the server and not let it bother you.

A Mexican newspaper reports that bored Royal Air Force pilots stationed on the Falkland Islands, have devised what they consider a marvelous new game. Noting that the local penguins are fascinated by airplanes, the pilots search out a beach where the birds are gathered and fly slowly along it at the water's edge. Perhaps ten thousand penguins turn their heads in unison, watching the planes go by. Then the pilots turn around and fly back, and all the birds turn their heads in the opposite direction, like spectators at a slow-motion tennis match. Then, the paper reports, "The pilots fly out to sea and turn directly toward the penguin colony and overfly it. Heads go up, up, up, and ten thousand penguins fall over onto their backs.

So the man approaches the lovely woman and says, "Excuse me. Would you be so kind as to dance with me?" Seeing the man is totally drunk the woman says, "I'm sorry. Right now I'm concentrating on matrimony, and I'd rather sit than dance." So the man humbly returns to his friend. "So what did she say?" asks the friend. The drunk responded, "She said she's constipated on macaroni, and would rather sh** in her pants." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Frugal Wedding Reception Saving money on your wedding reception by having it outdoors. Have it at a park, a campground or at someone's house who has a big yard. Other locations to consider if you must have the reception indoors: your local community center; Elks, Lions or VFW Club, especially if someone in your family is a member; some Senior Citizen Centers have great halls they can rent for receptions. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ There was a Scot, American, and a Iraqui in a plane on fire and about to crash. There were no parachutes and the only exit was to jump from 49,000 feet high. As the Scottish jumped he yelled, "God save me!" and landed safely in a haystack. When the American jumped he also yelled, "God save me!" and landed safely in another haystack. The Iraqui wasn't good at his English and when he jumped he yelled, "God shave me!", and went splat on the roof of a barber shop.

Arsonist got 19 years. A young woman who tried to help her neighbour almost died when she was doused with fuel and set on fire. Kirsten Ashby, 27, saw there was some kind of problem between her neighbour and his girlfriend, and went to try and help. But Raymond Bowen threw petrol over her, then flicked a lighter to set her on fire while he stood smoking a cigarette. She was left with no finger tips, no ears, layers of her skin on her face burned away, and her shoulder-length dark hair burned away. Bowen was jailed for 19 years today for attempted murder after the attack 23 weeks ago. Kristen has been in hospital since the attack, and her parents have spoken out to try and raise money for her treatment and adaptations to help her when she leaves hospital. Her parents, Lynn and Paul, have taken care of Kirsten’s daughter Maddison, nine, since the attack and visited her in hospital as she has undergone a staggering 80 operations to start rebuilding her face and body. Her parents said today that they were told to expect the worst as she was not expected to survive the horrific ordeal. They described her as a ‘stubborn soul’ and her recovery, much of which had been in isolation due to the risk of contracting an infection, was a slow and painful process. In the first month after the incident Kirsten was placed in a medically induced coma so her body could deal with the shock and pain caused by the extensive burns.

Married for a night A man and a woman, who had never met before, but were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping compartment on a transcontinental train. Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper bunk and she in the lower. At 1:00 AM, the man leaned over and gently woke the woman saying, "Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold." "I have a better idea," she replied. "Just for tonight, let's pretend that we're married." "Wow! That's a great idea!" he exclaimed." "Good," she replied. "Get your own damn blanket!"

Joshua L. Franklin, 19, pleaded guilty April 16 to a robbery at Wood River Convenient Market in August 2017, and was sentenced to four years in prison. Within an hour of the crime, East Alton Police said a person matching the description of the suspect was in the lobby, wanting to report the Wood River robbery. Franklin told police he had witnessed the robbery. Officers arrived in the lobby and arrested him. Wood River Deputy Chief Dan Blunt said in August that Franklin must not have realized how good the surveillance video the store had was. When police searched Franklin's home, they found clothing, money and a weapon. No one was hurt during the robbery. Franklin's competency to stand trial was questioned, but he ultimately was found competent enough for that. Tech Support Pits From: Jim Re: Where are the Attachments in Thunderbird?

Classic: AMERICAN JOURNALISM Dan Rather, Peter Jennings, Cokie Roberts, and a tough old U.S. Marine Sergeant were all captured by terrorists in Iraq. The leader of the terrorists told them that he would grant them each one last request before they were beheaded. Dan Rather said, "Well, I'm a Texan; so I'd like one last bowlful of hot spicy chili." The leader nodded to an underling who left and returned with the chili. Rather ate it all and said, "Now I can die content." Peter Jennings said, "I am Canadian, so I'd like to hear the song "O Canada" one last time." The leader nodded to a terrorist who had studied the Western world and knew the music. He returned with some rag-tag Musicians and played the anthem. Jennings sighed and declared he could now die peacefully. Cokie Roberts said, "I'm a reporter to the end. I want to take out my tape recorder and describe the scene here and what's about to happen. Maybe someday someone will hear it and know that I was on the job till the end." The leader directed an aide to hand over the tape recorder and Roberts dictated some comments. She then said,"Now I can die happy." The leader turned and said, "And now, Mr. U.S. Marine, what is your final wish?" "Kick me in the ass," said the Marine. "What?" asked the leader. "Will you mock us in your last hour? "No, I'm not kidding. I want you to kick me in the ass," insisted the Marine. So the leader shoved him into the open, and kicked him in the ass. The Marine went sprawling, but rolled to his knees, pulled a 9 mm pistol from inside his fatigues, and shot the leader dead. In the resulting confusion, he leapt to his knapsack, pulled out his M4 carbine and sprayed the Iraqis with gunfire. In a flash, all the Iraqis were either dead or fleeing for their lives. As the Marine was untying Rather, Jennings , and Roberts, they asked him, "Why didn't you just shoot them in the beginning? Why did you ask them to kick you in the ass first?" "What!" replied the Marine, "And have you three assholes report that I carried out an unprovoked attack?"

Back in the days when Roman galleys plied the Mediterranean, a crew of oarsmen was sweating and straining to propel the ship through high seas when the first mate appeared. "I've got good news and bad news," he says. "The good news is we've spotted an island, so the plan is to stop, drink rum, hunt a couple of wild boars, have a feast and relax with the native girls." The sailors all cheer in happiness, all but one, who asks, "And what is the bad news?" "Well," the first mate replies, "tomorrow, the captain wants to go water skiing." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Bugs from Your Car Baking soda is great for removing bugs from your car before you wash it.

___________________________________________________ A man is struck by a bus on a busy New York City street. He lies on the sidewalk as a crowd of spectators gathers around. "A priest. Somebody get me a priest!" the man gasps. A policeman checks the crowd, but there's no priest, no minister, no man of God of any kind. "A priest, please," the injured man says again. Then out of the crowd steps a wrinkled and wizened Jewish man of advanced years. "Mr. Policeman," says the man, "I'm not a priest. I'm not even a Catholic. But for 50 years now I've lived behind St. Mary's Catholic Church on Third Avenue, and every night I've listened to the Catholic rites. Maybe I can be of some comfort to this man." The policeman agrees and brings the old man over to where the man lies. The old man kneels down on the sidewalk, leans over the injured victim and intones in a solemn voice: "Under the B - 4. Under the I - 19. Under the N - 38. Under the G - 54. Under the O - 72." ___________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ When I was in the fourth grade, we had the horrible Mr. Johnson as our teacher. Once he got called to the office. When he got back, he found all of us sitting absolutely still and quiet. Shocked, he asked, "Boys and girls, I've never seen anything like this. It's wonderful. But what made you all act so well behaved and quiet?" We all looked at each other and I finally raised my hand. "Well," I said, "one time you said that if you ever came back and found us quiet, you'd drop dead. We are waiting." _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joshua L Franklin, 19, East Alton, Illinois Super Fink finked himself into jail An East Alton man who told police he witnessed a robbery he had actually committed was sentenced to prison. Joshua L. Franklin, 19, pleaded guilty April 16 to a robbery at Wood River Convenient Market in August 2017, and was sentenced to four years in prison. Within an hour of the crime, East Alton Police said a person matching the description of the suspect was in the lobby, wanting to report the Wood River robbery. Franklin told police he had witnessed the robbery. Officers arrived in the lobby and arrested him. Wood River Deputy Chief Dan Blunt said in August that Franklin must not have realized how good the surveillance video the store had was. When police searched Franklin's home, they found clothing, money and a weapon. No one was hurt during the robbery. Franklin's competency to stand trial was questioned, but he ultimately was found competent enough for that. Tech Support Pits From: Jim Re: Where are the Attachments in Thunderbird?

One winter morning while listening to the radio, they hear the announcer say: "We are going to have 4-6 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even numbered side of the street, so that the snowplow can get through" Judy goes out and moves her car. A week later while they are eating breakfast, the radio announcer says: "We are expecting 6-8 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd numbered side of the street, so that the snowplow can get through." Judy goes out and moves her car again. The next week they are having breakfast again, when the radio announcer says: "We are expecting 8-10 inches of snow today. You must park........... ," then the electric power goes out. Judy is very upset, and with a worried look on her face she says, "Honey, I don't know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on so the plow can get through?"

Classic: AMERICAN JOURNALISM Dan Rather, Peter Jennings, Cokie Roberts, and a tough old U.S. Marine Sergeant were all captured by terrorists in Iraq. The leader of the terrorists told them that he would grant them each one last request before they were beheaded. Dan Rather said, "Well, I'm a Texan; so I'd like one last bowlful of hot spicy chili." The leader nodded to an underling who left and returned with the chili. Rather ate it all and said, "Now I can die content." Peter Jennings said, "I am Canadian, so I'd like to hear the song "O Canada" one last time." The leader nodded to a terrorist who had studied the Western world and knew the music. He returned with some rag-tag Musicians and played the anthem. Jennings sighed and declared he could now die peacefully. Cokie Roberts said, "I'm a reporter to the end. I want to take out my tape recorder and describe the scene here and what's about to happen. Maybe someday someone will hear it and know that I was on the job till the end." The leader directed an aide to hand over the tape recorder and Roberts dictated some comments. She then said,"Now I can die happy." The leader turned and said, "And now, Mr. U.S. Marine, what is your final wish?" "Kick me in the ass," said the Marine. "What?" asked the leader. "Will you mock us in your last hour? "No, I'm not kidding. I want you to kick me in the ass," insisted the Marine. So the leader shoved him into the open, and kicked him in the ass. The Marine went sprawling, but rolled to his knees, pulled a 9 mm pistol from inside his fatigues, and shot the leader dead. In the resulting confusion, he leapt to his knapsack, pulled out his M4 carbine and sprayed the Iraqis with gunfire. In a flash, all the Iraqis were either dead or fleeing for their lives. As the Marine was untying Rather, Jennings , and Roberts, they asked him, "Why didn't you just shoot them in the beginning? Why did you ask them to kick you in the ass first?" "What!" replied the Marine, "And have you three assholes report that I carried out an unprovoked attack?"

Back in the days when Roman galleys plied the Mediterranean, a crew of oarsmen was sweating and straining to propel the ship through high seas when the first mate appeared. "I've got good news and bad news," he says. "The good news is we've spotted an island, so the plan is to stop, drink rum, hunt a couple of wild boars, have a feast and relax with the native girls." The sailors all cheer in happiness, all but one, who asks, "And what is the bad news?" "Well," the first mate replies, "tomorrow, the captain wants to go water skiing." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Bugs from Your Car Baking soda is great for removing bugs from your car before you wash it.

It lifts the roof off, picks up the bed the farmer and his wife are sleeping in, and sets them down gently in the next county. The wife begins to cry. "Don't be scared, dear," her husband says. "We're not hurt." The woman continues to cry. "I'm not scared," she says between sobs. "I'm crying because I'm happy. This is the first time in 14 years we've been out together."

___________________________________________________ A man is struck by a bus on a busy New York City street. He lies on the sidewalk as a crowd of spectators gathers around. "A priest. Somebody get me a priest!" the man gasps. A policeman checks the crowd, but there's no priest, no minister, no man of God of any kind. "A priest, please," the injured man says again. Then out of the crowd steps a wrinkled and wizened Jewish man of advanced years. "Mr. Policeman," says the man, "I'm not a priest. I'm not even a Catholic. But for 50 years now I've lived behind St. Mary's Catholic Church on Third Avenue, and every night I've listened to the Catholic rites. Maybe I can be of some comfort to this man." The policeman agrees and brings the old man over to where the man lies. The old man kneels down on the sidewalk, leans over the injured victim and intones in a solemn voice: "Under the B - 4. Under the I - 19. Under the N - 38. Under the G - 54. Under the O - 72." ___________________________________________________

For today they forecast a 20% chance of up to 1 mm of rain.
Yeah, sure. Sounds like a heavy dew, but not enough to darken the

According to a police report, 28-year-old Jacob Garcia was initially moved to a different seat on the American Airlines flight after a female passenger accused him of groping her. Police say they were called after Garcia started screaming insults at the woman and her boyfriend, the Miami Herald reports. All passengers were told to leave the plane but Garcia refused to exit the aircraft and wrapped his legs around a seat, yelling at officers to "try it and see what happens." "He was just being really argumentative, kind of combative with everyone," passenger Kaitlin Water tells CBS Miami. Police say that during the struggle, which was captured on video, an officer discharged his Taser, which cycled 10 times "due to Mr. Garcia's actions and the close quarters of the engagement." Police say that after they carried Garcia off the plane, still yelling, he went limp to make himself harder to move then grabbed the gun of an officer, who slapped his hand away. The flight to Chicago took off an hour late without Garcia, who was booked on charges including battery, disorderly conduct, and resisting an officer.

Have FUN DearWebby Thanks to Sandie for this story: Once upon a time, in a land far far away, lived a beautiful Queen with magnificent, voluptuous breasts. Troy the Dragon slayer coveted them but he knew that the penalty for fulfilling his wildest desire would be death, should he ever try to touch them. One day Troy revealed his secret desire to his colleague, Albert the Physician, who was the King's chief doctor. Albert exclaimed that he could very easily arrange for Troy the Dragon Slayer to satisfy his desire, but it would cost Troy 1000 gold coins for him to arrange it. Without pause, Troy the Dragon Slayer readily agreed to the scheme. The next day, Albert the Physician made a batch of itching powder and poured a little of it into the Queen's brassiere while she bathed. Soon after she dressed, the itching commenced and grew intense. Upon being summoned to the Royal Chambers to address this incident, Albert the Physician informed the King and Queen that he knew of this itch and that only a special saliva, if applied for four hours, would cure this dreadful scourge, and that his tests had shown that in the whole kingdom only the saliva of Troy the Dragon Slayer was of the correct type to cure the itch. The King quickly summoned Troy the Dragon Slayer. Albert the Physician had prepared an antidote in advance and given it to Troy the Dragon Slayer, who concealed it in his jerkin and for the next four hours, Troy worked passionately on the Queen's voluptuous and magnificent breasts. He then smuggled the antidote into his mouth and the Queen's itching was gradually relieved, and Troy the Dragon Slayer left satisfied and hailed as a hero. Upon returning to his chamber, Troy the Dragon Slayer found Albert the Physician demanding his payment of 1,000 gold coins. With his obsession now satisfied, Troy the Dragon Slayer couldn't have cared less and, knowing that Albert the Physician could never report this matter to the King, with a laugh just told him to get lost. The next day, Albert the Physician slipped a massive dose of the same itching powder into the King's underpants. The King immediately summoned Troy the Dragon Slayer.

A man was in a terrible accident, and his "manhood" was mangled and torn from his body. His doctor assured him that modern medicine could give him back his manhood, but that his insurance wouldn't cover the surgery since it was considered cosmetic. The doctor said the cost would be $3,500 for "small", $6,500 for "medium", $14,000 for "large." The man was sure he would want a medium or large, but the doctor urged him to talk it over with his wife before he made any decision. The man called his wife on the phone and explained their options. The doctor came back into the room, and found the man looking dejected. Well, what have the two of you decided?" asked the doctor. The man answered, "She'd rather remodel the kitchen."

She really liked it, so last year, when I was in Dollar General, I picked up a 32 ounce bottle of it for $1.00. I had not used it until this week when cleaning the porch, getting the wood ready for painting and new screen wire. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com Dollar stores often sell experimental stuff for name brands, sometimes under a fake name, to do testing. If people like the stuff, the name brand will sell it under a label of their own, and you won't see it at the Dollar store ever again. The same goes if the people don't like it. if you like some stuff, stock up. Don't count on it still available when your initial purchase runs dry. The reason they get the stuff so cheap or free is because actually, they are just doing customer acceptance testing. And once the test is over, they won't even try to re-order stuff again. Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ Six retired Floridians were playing poker in the Condo clubhouse, when Meyerwitz loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest and drops dead at the table. Showing respect for their fallen comrade, the other five finish playing the hand standing up. Then Finkelstein looks around and asks, "Now, who is going to tell his wife?" They draw straws and Goldberg picks the short one. They tell him to be discreet, be gentle, don't make a bad situation any worse. Goldberg says, "Gentlemen! Discreet? I'm the most discreet mensch you will ever meet. Discretion is my middle name, leave it to me." Then Goldberg goes over to the Meyerwitz apartment and knocks on the door. The wife answers and asks what he wants. Goldberg declares, "Your husband just lost five hundred dollars in a poker game and is afraid to come home." Mrs. Meyerwitz yells, "TELL HIM HE SHOULD DROP DEAD!" And Goldberg says, "Okay, I'll go tell him." _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tiffany Evans,34, Dover, Delaware Entitlement class royal arrested for assault with hot coffee and pepper spray The use of hot coffee as a weapon appears to be on the rise – and while official statistics are not known, it seems we are seeing more stories like the one in Dover, Delaware. 34-year-old Tiffany Evans is under arrest after she became enraged at a convenience store employee who was making her a sandwich and attacked. Thankfully, she didn’t have a gun, but she did have hot coffee and pepper spray. A woman is facing multiple charges after police say she threw hot coffee on a Delaware store employee and used pepper spray over a food order. The Dover Police Department says on Wednesday, 34-year-old Tiffany Evans, of Dover, was arrested in connection to an assault the happened at WAWA, in the 1400 block of Forrest Avenue. Police say just after 8:45 PM, Evans placed an order for a sandwich and while the male employee was preparing the sandwich, Evans started to yell at him because she believed he was making a mistake. Officers say a female employee then told the 34-year-old to stop talking like that and that another sandwich would be made. According to the report, Evans began to argue with the female employee and she then threw a cup of hot coffee in the employee’s face. Authorities say the incident caused burns to the woman’s face. The coffee also reportedly hit the male employee, causing damage to his personal cell phone that was in his pocket and $200 worth of food products in the sandwich prep area. Dover PD says the victim then walked around the counter and continued to argue with Evans, who then pepper sprayed the employee in the face. It didn’t take long for police to find Evans, but it did take time to clean up her mess. Evans then fled the scene in a white Honda Accord. Officers say the victim was taken by ambulance for minor injuries as a result of the hot coffee being thrown at her. The store was apparently forced to close for over an hour to allow the pepper spray to dissipate and cleanup the food prep area that was damaged by the thrown coffee. Law enforcement says Evans was identified by her tag number on her vehicle and later turned herself in to the Dover Police Department without incident. Evans was charged with assault 3rd degree, assault 2nd degree, offensive touching, criminal mischief (2x), terroristic threatening, and disorderly conduct. She was later released on a $7,800 unsecured bond. Tech Support Pits From: Wes Re: Tripod Sources Dear Webby, Can you give us a few websites or good tripods on eBay??? wes Dear Wes With tripods you have to check them out personally. The staff at camera stores rarely have a clue about tripods, and it's even worse on the net. First make sure that the rotator is not a threaded pipe or bolt. If it is, don't waste time on it. It's sloppy junk. It's OK if a bolt holds down the rotator or turntable, but if it rides up on the threads when you turn it, forget it. If it passed that all important Pass/Fail test, then put a camera with a long, heavy lens on it, focus on something very far away, and lock it in position while watching the viewfinder or LCD. Does the locking action move the focus three trees over, or does it stay put? All the rest is of minor importance.

Jennifer had applied for a job and when she returned home, her mother asked how the interview went. "Pretty good, I think," replied Jennifer, "but if I go to work there I won't get a vacation until I'm married." Her mother, of course, had never heard of such a thing. "Is that what they told you?" "No",replied Jennifer, "but right on the application it said 'vacation time may notbe taken until you've had your First Anniversary.'" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cooking Ahead A lot of time cooking is spent waiting around for one thing or another to get done.

Police later identified the suspect as Matt Hermsmeyer, 46. He was charged with suspicion of vehicle theft, possession of stolen property, priors for auto theft, resisting arrest and violation of his probation. A Coors truck driver was making a delivery at a Santa Rosa liquor store when a customer entered the store and told the driver that a man had climbed into his parked truck and driven away, a police report said. The customer described the suspect as an apparent homeless man dressed only in red, white and blue shorts. A GPS system inside the truck, like in every beer and cigarette truck, gave police the suspect’s location according to the report. Santa Rosa police officers, including a K-9 officer and his partner, and a Henry-1 helicopter unit from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to the scene where witnesses reported seeing the suspect on foot after having apparently abandoned the truck. Video captured by Fox 2 in the San Francisco Bay Area showed the suspect running across Highway 101 in Santa Rosa, jumping the divider and fleeing into brush along the road, his star-spangled shorts still waving. The suspect was caught within an hour of the truck’s theft as he hid in the bushes, the report said. Apparently he was not interested in the beer, just wanted to add "stealing a beer truck" to his long resume.

The clean up wizard appears and scans the drive on which windows is installed (usually C ). After it scans click OK then "More options" "Remove restore points".

"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."

_____________________________________________________ Q :What's the difference between the Government and the Mafia? A: One of them is organized. _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Arnulfo Castro, 46, Hurst, Texas Illegal immigrant blows up a house when he hits it with his FORD Explorer Police in Texas released dashcam video showing a home explosion that injured both residents and the responding officers. The blast happened April 7 after authorities say 46-year-old Arnulfo Castro lost control of his white 2000 Ford Explorer and crashed into a house, rupturing the gas line. The homeowner reported the accident, telling a 911 dispatcher that someone was trapped in a bedroom, according to a police report. Castro was busy trying to organize a lift away from there, when the cops arrived. As officers walked up to the house at 433 Myrtle Drive in Hurst, the leaking gas ignited, sparking a fiery explosion that sent pieces of the structure flying at them. The force of the blast lifted the roof off of the walls and blew out most of the back wall, with the residents – a couple and their adult son – still inside, police said. Officers found the wife severely injured, buried under a pile of debris. They managed to clear the rubble and get all three to area hospitals for treatment. Police say the mother and father suffered serious burn injuries, while the son wasn't as badly hurt. Officer Travis Hiser was treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital. Corporal Ryan Tooker suffered cuts and abrasions while helping extricate the victims; he was also treated and released. "There was definitely some divine intervention that was reaching down and slowing those vehicles down from making scene and then taking a finger and pushing me away from the house and the path that I went," Hiser told KXAS. "Otherwise, I would have been up on the wall and it would have exploded completely into my face." Police arrested Castro, who lives nearby, for driving without a license. Castro told investigators that he lost control of the SUV when the brakes failed, according to authorities. Castro was turned over to the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement after being placed on an immigration detainer. The victims had just inherited the house, and don't have insurance on it yet.

Have FUN DearWebby Thanks to Kati for bringing back this Classic: Never bring plants into the house. Garden Grass Snakes also known as Garter Snakes (Thamnophissirtalis) can be dangerous. Yes, grass snakes, not rattlesnakes. Here's why. A couple in Sweetwater, Texas, had a lot of potted plants. During a recent cold spell, the wife was bringing a lot of them indoors to protect them from a possible freeze. It turned out that a little green garden grass snake was hidden in one of the plants and when it had warmed up, it slithered out and the wife saw it go under the sofa. She let out a very loud scream. The husband (who was taking a shower) ran out into the living room naked to see what the problem was. She told him there was a snake under the sofa. He got down on the floor on his hands and knees to look for it. About that time the family dog came and cold-nosed him on the behind. He thought the snake had bitten him, so he screamed and fell over on the floor. His wife thought he had a heart attack, so she covered him up, told him to lie still and called an ambulance. The attendants rushed in, wouldn't listen to his protests and loaded him on the stretcher and started carrying him out. About that time the snake came out from under the sofa and the Emergency Medical Technician saw it and dropped his end of the stretcher. That's when the man broke his leg and why he was hauled to the hospital. The wife still had the problem of the snake in the house, so she called on a neighbor man. He volunteered to capture the snake. He armed himself with a rolled-up newspaper and began poking under the couch. Soon he decided it was gone and told the woman, who sat down on the sofa in relief. But while relaxing, her hand dangled in between the cushions, where she felt the snake wriggling around. She screamed and fainted, the snake rushed back under the sofa. The neighbor man, seeing her lying there passed out, tried to use CPR to revive her. The neighbor's wife, who had just returned from shopping at the grocery store, saw her husband's mouth on the woman's mouth and slammed her husband in the back of the head with a bag of canned goods, knocking him out and cutting his scalp to a point where it needed 12 stitches. The noise woke the woman from her dead faint and she saw her neighbor lying on the floor with his wife bending over him, so she assumed that he had been bitten by the snake. She went to the kitchen and got a small bottle of whiskey, and began pouring it down the man's throat. By now the police had arrived. They saw the unconscious man, smelled the whiskey, and assumed that a drunken fight had occurred. They were about to arrest them all, when the women tried to explain how it all happened over a little green snake. The police called an ambulance, which took away the neighbor and his sobbing wife. The little snake again crawled out from under the sofa. One of the policemen drew his gun and fired at it. He missed the snake and hit the leg of the end table. The table fell over and the lamp on it shattered and as the bulb broke it started a fire in the drapes. The other policeman tried to beat out the flames, and fell through the window into the yard on top of the family dog who, startled, jumped out and raced into the street, where an oncoming car swerved to avoid it and smashed into the parked police car. Meanwhile, the burning drapes, were seen by the neighbors who called the fire department. The firemen had started raising the fire truck ladder when they were halfway down the street. The rising ladder tore out the overhead wires and put out the electricity and disconnected the telephones in a ten-square city block area (but they did get the house fire out). Time passed! Both men were discharged from the hospital, the house was repaired, the dog came home, the police acquired a new car, and all was right with their world. A while later they were watching TV and the weatherman announced a cold snap for that night. The wife asked her husband if he thought they should bring in their plants for the night. That's when he threw the TV at her head.

A man woke up one morning to find his wife packing her bags. "Where the heck are you going?" demanded the husband. The wife replied, "You know all this free sex I've been giving you all these years? Well I just found out I can get $200 a shot for it out in Las Vegas." With that the husband jumped out of bed and began packing HIS bags, too. "Where do you think you're going?" demanded the wife. "I want to see how you can live on $200 a year in Las Vegas!"

On their way to a justice of the peace to get married, a couple has a fatal car accident. The couple is sitting outside heavens gate waiting on St. Peter to do an intake. While waiting they wonder if they could possibly get married in Heaven. St. Peter finally shows up and they ask him. St. Peter says, "I don't know, this is the first time anyone ever asked. Let me go find out," and he leaves. The couple sits for a couple of months and begin to wonder if they really should get married in Heaven, what with the eternal aspect of it all. "What if it doesn't work out?, " they wonder, "Are we stuck together forever?" St. Peter returns after yet another month, looking somewhat bedraggled. "Yes," he informs the couple, "You can get married in Heaven." "Great," says the couple, "but what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?" St. Peter, red-faced, slams his clipboard onto the ground. "What's wrong?" exclaims the frightened couple. "Jeez!" St. Peter exclaims, "It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it's going to take for me to find a lawyer!?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Uneven Cake Layers Sometimes you bake a cake layer that comes out just a little bit lopsided. Level the layer with a serrated knife. Then apply a coat of frosting to the rough edge leftover from the cut. Let the frosting dry before frosting the rest of the cake. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com If serrated knifes just make it worse for you, like they do for me, try my trick: Put a book into a plastic bag and put it into the cake pan. Lay the cooled cake on top of that. Youmay have to use a thicker or thinner book to raise the cake just enough so that the planned cut line is level with the edge of the pan. Then take some dental floss and "saw" what is sticking above the top rim. The cake pan's top edge is a perfect guide and you will get a much smoother cut than with a knife. Just keep the floss good and tight while you saw with 4-5 inch left-right strokes towards you. Floss normally cuts much smoother than a knife, but if you need a perfectly smooth and not too absorbent top for a thin hard chocolate glaze, turn the cut layers upside down. If you greased the pan a bit, then the bottom will be better. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________ 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. After a time, 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 there after. 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?"
Our amazing and beautiful world.
___________________________________________________ A cop was patrolling at night in a well-known spot for "parking." He sees a couple in a car, with the interior light on. He gets closer to the car and sees a young man behind the wheel, reading a computer magazine and a young woman on the rear seat, knitting. Puzzled by this surprising situation, the cop walks to the car and knocks at the window. The young man lowers his window... -Yes, officer? What are you doing? Well, isn't it obvious? I'm reading a magazine... Pointing towards the young woman, the cop says: And her, what is she doing? The young man shrugs: I believe she's knitting a baby jumper. The cop is totally confused. A young couple alone in a car at night... and nothing obscene is happening! What's your age, young man? -I'm 25, sir... -And her, what's her age? The young man looks at his watch and says: -She'll be 18 in 20 minutes... ___________________________________________________

She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of coffee. "What's the matter dear?" she whispers as she steps into the room, "Why are you down here at this time of night?" "Do you remember when I met you and you were only 16?" he asks solemnly. The wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring and sensitive. "Yes, I do" she replies.

"Yes, I remember" says the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him. The husband continues...

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Dave for this story: Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room ' s only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation. Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window. The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene. One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man could not hear the band - he could see it in his mind' s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words. Days, weeks and months passed. One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone. Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed. It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall. She said, "Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you." _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tina Jones, 31, Woodridge, Illinois Illinois nurse paid to have Doctor's Wife killed An Illinois nurse hired a dark web company to kill the wife of a male doctor with whom she had an affair, police say. Woodridge police say that last Thursday, the CBS show 48 Hours reached out to them to say an area woman was allegedly involved in a murder-for-hire plot; the show had been investigating contract killing via the dark web, reports the Chicago Daily Herald. Authorities acting on that tip now allege 31- year-old Tina Jones of Des Plaines had in January paid more than $10,000 in Bitcoin to the Cosa Nostra International Network. Though they suspect that outfit scammed her, per the Chicago Tribune, police say Jones' goal was the murder of a clinical social worker from Woodridge, the wife of an anesthesiologist who completed his residency at a Maywood hospital where Jones works as a registered nurse. Jones' exact relationship with the doctor isn't clear, but ABC7 reports she had been "jilted" by him. Even so, "she left instructions not to hurt the husband and also to make it look like it was an accident," DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin says of the alleged plot. "She left specific instructions on the website as to when the woman's husband would be at work, so they would know when this woman would be alone." After submitting to an interview with Woodbridge police, Jones was arrested Tuesday on a charge solicitation of murder for hire, which carries a minimum sentence of 20 years in prison. Bail was set at $250,000 on Wednesday. Jones, who's also been suspended from her job pending an investigation, is due to be arraigned on May 15.

A young man was talking to a girl that he had just met, and asked her name. "I don't want to tell you," she said, "I'm named after both of my parents, and it's kind of embarrassing." "Well, what could be so bad about that?" the young man asked. "My mother's name is Eliza, and my father's name is Ferdinand." the girl answered. "Well, those are nice names" the guy replied. "They would be if they wouldn't have named me FerdEliza!"

A young man had completed medical school. He went back home to the small town to work with his father. They went out the first day to make house calls. As they went in the first house the father said now you watch me so you will know what to do. Inside, a woman was in the bed and she looked terrible. The old doctor checked her out. He was making notes when he dropped his pen to the floor. He picked it up and told the woman she need to quit cleaning and working so hard in her house, she just needed rest. When they got outside, the son asked how he knew that she was cleaning too much. The old doctor said that when he dropped his pen, the floor was so clean that there wasn't a speck of dust anywhere. When they arrived at the next house, the father told his son that it was his turn to examine the patient. At this house too, the woman was in bed, looking terrible. The young doctor took her blood pressure and pulse, asked a few questions, and made some notes. Then he dropped his pen and reached down to pick it up. He told the woman that she was doing too much church work, and needed to cut down on what she did. When the two doctors went outside, the old doctor asked the young one how he knew that she was doing too much church work. The young one said, "Well, when I bent down to pick up my pen, I saw the preacher under the bed." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Sanding in Hard to Reach Places An emery board works well for sanding tough to reach places on furniture.
