Thanks to Phil for this story: My two-year-old daughter, Paige, was with her mother while her older sister was being examined by a dentist. Paige kept herself busy playing with toys in the waiting room until she noticed that her mom was resting, her eyes closed. With about six other patients waiting, Paige marched up to her mother, looked her straight in the face and shook her shoulder. "Mommy," she yelled, "wake up! This is not church!" My wife, Lani, woke from her doze to the sound of the other patients laughing hysterically.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Michael Penn, 25, Newcastle, Delaware Dad Hid Heroin In His Baby's Diaper A Delaware man wanted on a theft charge stashed 16 packets of heroin down his eight-month-old baby boy’s diaper when police spotted him walking yesterday on a New Castle street, investigators allege. According to cops, Michael Penn recently swiped items from a Verizon store, prompting the issuance of an arrest warrant for shoplifting. Police officers approached the 25-year-old Penn while he was walking Tuesday with his three children. Seen in the adjacent mug shot, Penn was carrying the baby and his five-year-old daughter. Directed by officers to put the children down, Penn initially refused, cops reported. At one point, Penn was seen placing something in the baby’s diaper, according to the New Castle City Police Department. Penn was eventually detained and a search of the child’s diaper turned up the heroin stash, which can be seen in a police evidence photo. The heroin packets were stamped with brand names like “Bioshock” and “Death.” In addition to the shoplifting count, Penn was booked into jail yesterday on narcotics, resisting arrest, and child endangerment charges. He was later released on $4500 bond. Penn’s children were turned over to the custody of his grandmother, and cops reported the incident to child welfare officials. Tech Support Pits From: John Re: Can temp files be deleted? Dear Webby, My machine has an awful lot of temp files. Can they be deleted safely? What is the best way to do that? John Dear John Yes, sure you can get rid of them. Your browser will be a bit slower for a while, because it now has to download all the stuff again, that it had cached. Especially on slow dial-up, deleting temp files will NOT speed up your machine. Most programs are well behaved and clean up when they close. Internet Explorer does not clean up The easiest way to dump temp files is with Crap Cleaner. It will also dump the recycle bin, and if you don't take the checkmark off the cookies, it will dump those too. Crap Cleaner is free. Just go to my Tool Box and download it. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Emergency Sink Stopper The house I am at doesn't have the disposal stopper. I like to do dishes with a full sink of water so this posed a problem. Then, I realized that a tall glass works wonders. Someone posted here once that certain jar lids worked so this is just another clever solution to those pesky problems that plague our lives. Easy Peasy! Hope this helps. By Sandi [394] At the Dollar Store you can get "universal" drain stoppers. They look like a 3/16" thick, 4" x 4" flexible rubber square. You just lay them over a sink or tub drain. Some have a hole punched in a corner to attach a ball chain or string, so that you can pull the flap in a hurry, if the water is too hot or too high to reach in. Just attach the ball chain or string to the faucets, and you will never have to search for it. It will never break, even if you drop a big, cast iron pot into the sink. Works great! Have Fun!

Knowing that the minister was very fond of cherry brandy, one of the church elders offered to present him with a bottle on one consideration - that the pastor acknowledge receipt of the gift in the church paper. "Gladly," responded the good man. When the church magazine came out a few days later, the elder turned at once to the "appreciation" column. There he read: "The minister extends his thanks to Elder Brown for his gift of fruit and for the spirit in which it was given."
My Parents had not been out together in quite some time. One Saturday, as Mom was finishing the dinner dishes, my father stepped up behind her. "Would you like to go out, girl?" he asked. Not even turning around, my mother quickly replied, "Oh, yes, I'd love to!" They had a wonderful evening, and it wasn't until the end of it that Dad confessed. His question had actually been directed to the family dog, lying near Mom's feet on the kitchen floor.

Windows 7 mystery shut-downs 




Good Morning,  !

Today is Wednesday, July 9.

Windows 9 will be released this fall.
Apparently Microsoft has realized that Windows 8 
belongs on the same shelf as Vista and DOS 4.

According to NetMarketShare, the combined market share of 
Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 is just 12.54 percent, more than 
Apple’s Mac OS share, but far less than the 25.31 percent 
held by Windows XP, or the 50.55 percent share held by 
Windows 7. Those are actual user numbers, not claimed "sales"
which include donations to foreign countries by the 
Bill&Melinda foundation.

What I find significant is the 25.31% XP. Considering the
difficulty in getting XP CDs, that is a really solid
one finger salute to Microsoft.

Those figures don't include Linux. "That's industrial, 
commercial and professional users."
If all the made-for-XP and newer machines, that are 
running Linux were included, then the Windows 8/8.1 
share would be way less than 1%.
For these stats they just use home users.

Is Microsoft taking a hint, that people would rather have 
something funtional like XP, instead of hysterical changes 
of the user interface and different ways of getting the 
same old work done? 
Currently the only "sales" of Windows 8/8.1 are pre-installed 
in new machines, without giving the buyer a choice. 

So, what is Microsoft doing about that? 
Is Windows 9 getting back towards XP ?
No.

It seems that they are going to drive even more people 
to Linux and Mac. They are going to have their computer
building companies in China pre-install Windows 9, 
but require the victims to visit the Microsoft online 
store to buy a license. 
I have a hunch, many will stop on the way and get a 
free Linux instead.

Currently, the only real problem with Linux is that there 
are so many different "flavors", and the fans of each getting
rather religious about THEIR chosen flavor.

In the industry we just laugh about that and use CentOS, the
free version of RedHat Linux. CentOS is the same as RedHat,
just without tech support. If you have seen pictures of big
server "farms", with a Million or more computers, that are 
just blades on racks, those all use CentOS Linux, 
not any kind of Windows.

Microsoft instead is frantically chasing the cloud. They 
want you to "lease" Microsoft Office, with the program sitting
on THEIR servers, "the cloud", instead of in your computer.
You simply pay your monthly lease for Microsoft Office, and 
your corner of a cloud to store your files. 
While that is handy if you just one-finger-poke at a thin 
phone, it is not what big-screen computer users want.

If you managed to hang on to an XP, treat it gently and
vacuum out the dust bunnies, It's that time of the year, 
when they tend to overheat. 
The same of course goes for W7 machines. Vacuum them out!
Maybe Windows 10 will be better, or maybe by then you will 
be ready for Linux or Mac?

Have FUN!

"You didn't weaken your resolve did you?" asked the friend. "Not one bit. In the end, we went to his apartment. I figured, let HIS mother worry."

After a while, my seven-year-old son asked: "Mom, why do you always make the decisions?" "Because I'm an adult," I said. "When you become an adult, you'll make the decisions." He thought for a few seconds, then said: "No, I won't. Then I'll have a wife."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Christine Saunders, 45, DeKalb County, Alabama Drunk Alabama woman rode stolen horse to rob a store An Alabama woman was arrested on Friday after police say she drunkenly stole a horse and rode it to a store to steal some merchandise. Christine Saunders, 45, was initially only hit with alcohol-related charges, but police say more charges could be on the way, according to AL.com. Authorities responded after receiving a call about an intoxicated woman causing a disturbance at a store in DeKalb County on Saturday evening. According to Sheriff Jimmy Harris, Saunders had a horse, that she was believed to be riding, tied up outside of the store. Officers recovered three cans of Keystone Light in a Walmart bag that was tied to the saddle horn. The horse was returned to its owner, who did not press charges. Saunders was charged with public intoxication and illegal possession of a prohibited beverage. Apparently, in Alabama, unopened cans of beer are not allowed in a shopping bag tied to a saddle horn. Tech Support Pits From: Mary Re: Mysterious Windows Shut-downs Dear Webby, How are you feeling after all the eye injections? I hope this finds you feeling much better. I am having a big problem and windows seem to be ignorant of why their product doesn't work right. I have a window 7 and it just closes for no apparent reason. Do you have any suggestion on how I might be able to fix it? Thank you so much for all your wonderful emails. Mary Dear Mary The next injections are due July 30. The left eye cataract operation is on July 15. Yes, Microsoft is rather clueless about that sort of thing. However, in your case, it might be simply overheating. Some computers give you a warning and reduce processor speed, others just "pull the plug", which is rather stupid, since that shuts down the fans, while heat is still migrating from the inside of components. If the mystery shut-downs happen during afternoon or evening, but not during cool mornings, then I would recommend opening the case, vacuuming the dust bunnies out and cleaning the heat sinks. The heat sinks are those high-tech looking aluminum fins. Clean those and the fans with a Q-tip dipped in window cleaner. Please let me know if that solves the problem. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Your Mattress Last Longer There are so many mattress ads on TV now and they are telling us how long we should keep our mattresses. I thought you could use a mattress for 20 years, but they are telling us 7-8. But then, I turn my mattress in the old-fashioned way - upside down and top to bottom - to rotate the wear. I let my mattresses air out the morning after we use it before we make the bed. All of this goes toward giving us more years on our mattress. By pamphyila from L.A., CA Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

Here is a seven year old report, timely again with the US Govt considering getting involved in Iraq again. Regardless of where you stand on the issue of the U. S. involvement in Iraq, here's a sobering statistic: There has been a monthly average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of 2,112 deaths. That gives a violent death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers. The violent death rate in Washington D. C. is 80.6 per 100,000 persons for the same period. That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot or knifed and killed in the U. S. Capital than you are in Iraq. Conclusion: The U. S. should pull out of Washington.

It was the first day of school. The previous principal had just retired and a new principal just started. As the principal made his rounds, he heard a terrible commotion coming from one of the classrooms. He rushed in and spotted one boy, taller than the others, who seemed to be making the most noise. He seized the lad, dragged him to the hall, and told him to wait there until he was excused. Returning to the classroom, the principal restored order and lectured the class for half an hour about the importance of good behavior. "Now," he said, "are there any questions?" One girl stood up timidly. "Please sir," she asked, "May we have our teacher back?"

Save any new pictures, that you want included, into the "My Pictures" folder. Right-click on the desktop, Properties, Appearance, Screensaver Select "My Pictures" Set the delay time, and hit OK a bunch of times. From then on you will have a slide show of the pictures in "My Pictures" as a screen saver. The reason to move all the old pictures into the Archive folder is because some of them might not be appropriate for a screensaver. Have FUN! DearWebby

A man is struck by a bus on a busy street in New York City. He lies dying 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 finds no priest, no minister, no man of God of any kind. "A PRIEST, PLEASE!" the dying man says again. Then out of the crowd steps a little old Jewish man of at least eighty years of age."Mr. Policeman," says the man, "I'm not a priest. I'm not even a Catholic. But for fifty years now I'm living behind St. Mary's Catholic Church on Third Avenue, and every night I'm listening to the Catholic litany. Maybe I can be of some comfort to this man." The policeman agrees and brings the octogenarian over to the dying man. He kneels down, leans over the injured and says in a solemn voice: "Under the B - 4. Under the I - 19. Under the N - 38. Under the G - 54. Under the O - 72." BINGO!
It was Saturday morning as Jake, an avid hunter, woke up ready to go bag the first deer of the season. He walks down to the kitchen to get a cup of coffee, and to his surprise he finds his wife, Alice, sitting there, fully dressed in camouflage. Jake asks her: "What are you up to?" Alice smiles: "I'm going hunting with you!" Jake, though he had many reservations about this, reluctantly decides to take her along. Later they arrive at the hunting site. Jake sets his wife safely up in the tree stand and tells her: "If you see a deer, take careful aim on it and I'll come running back as soon as I hear the shot". Jake walks away with a smile on his face knowing that Alice couldn't bag an elephant--much less a deer. Not 10 minutes pass when he is startled as he hears an array of gunshots. Quickly, Jake starts running back. As Jake gets closer to her stand, he hears Alice screaming: "Get away from my deer!" Confused, Jake races faster towards his screaming wife. And again he hears her yell: "Get away from my deer!" followed by another volley of gunfire. Now within sight of where he had left his wife, Jake is surprised to see a cowboy, with his hands high in the air. The cowboy, obviously distraught, says: "Okay, lady, okay!!!! You can have your deer!!! Just let me get my saddle off it!"

Fred had been a faithful Christian and was in the hospital, near death. The family called their pastor to stand with them. As the pastor stood next to the bed, Fred's condition appeared to deteriorate and he motioned frantically for something to write on. The pastor lovingly handed him a pen and a piece of paper, and Fred used his last bit of energy to scribble a note, then he died. The pastor thought it best not to look at the note at that time, so he placed it in his jacket pocket. Several days later, at the funeral, as the pastor was finishing the eulogy, he realized that he was wearing the same jacket that he was wearing when Fred had died. He said, "you know, ol' Fred handed me a note just before he died. I haven't looked at it, but knowing Fred, I'm sure there's a word of inspiration there for us all. I will let his wife read the note to us!" She opened the note, and read aloud, "Get lost you blathering idiot. You're standing on my oxygen tube!"

Just as John got in the door, after staying at the bar a bit too long, the cuckoo clock in the hall started up and cuckooed 3 times. He realized his wife would probably wake up, so he cuckooed another 9 times. He was really proud of himself, having a quick witty solution, even when smashed, to escape a possible conflict. Next morning the wife asked him what time he got in and he told her 12 o'clock. She didn't seem disturbed at all. Whew! Got away with that one! She then told him that they needed a new cuckoo clock. When he asked her why, she said "Well, it cuckooed 3 times, said 'Oh, f@#%,' cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another 3 times, snickered, and finally cuckooed twice more, and then it farted."

Tech Support Pits From: Joyce Re: Choice of picture viewer Dear Webby, Whenever someone sends me a picture attachment, the Windows picture viewer pops up with the attachment. How can I change it so that my Picasa shows the picture instead of the Windows picture viewer? Is it even possible to change it to something other than that? Thanks and have a great weekend! Sincerely, Joyce Dear Joyce Go to MyComputer Tools Folder Options DON'T do what Microsoft says. They are a bit confused about it. Instead click on File Types After a while, it will fill it's window with all the file types and shows what programs are associated with them. Find JPG, and change it's file association to Picasa then do the same for GIF and PNG. When done, hit OK until you are out of all that. Picasa may be going out of fashion, however, the same trick also works for PaintShopPro, Photoshop, GIMP,and many other graphics programs. Have FUN! DearWebby

A woman was looking for a used car to buy and saw an ad in the classifieds. It read: Brand new 2014 Mercedes Benz, slate blue, loaded, etc. Sell for $150.00. She was astonished and decided to call the seller and check it out. The woman selling the car was glad to show it to her and, to her surprise, the car was in perfect condition. She asked the woman, "What's the catch? Why are you selling this car so cheaply?" "Well," she said, "it's my husband's car actually, and he recently ran off with his young secretary. I got a telegram from him last week that read: 'In Miami. Need bail money. Sell car'."

Ancient Classic: Stevie Wonder is playing his first gig in Tokyo and the place is absolutely packed to the rafters. In a bid to break the ice with his new audience He asks if anyone would like him to play a request. A little old Japanese man jumps out of his seat in the first row and shouts at the top of his voice "Play a Jazz chord! Play a jazz chord!" Amazed that this guy knows about the jazz influences in Stevie's varied career, the blind impresario starts to play an E minor scale and then goes into a difficult jazz melody for about 10 minutes. When he finishes the whole place goes wild. The little old man jumps up again and shouts "No, no, play a Jazz chord, play a Jazz chord". A bit peeved by this, Stevie, being the professional that he is, dives straight into a jazz improvisation with his band around the B-flat minor chord and really tears the place apart. The crowd goes wild with this impromptu show of his technical expertise. The little old man jumps up again. "No, no. Play a Jazz chord, play a jazz chord". Well and truly peeved that this little guy doesn't seem to appreciate his playing ability. Stevie says to him from the stage "OK smart alek, You get up here and do it!" The little old man climbs up onto the stage, takes hold of the mike and starts to sing: "A jazz chord to say I ruv you..."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Dryer Lint Firestarter I use dryer lint in a cardboard egg carton and drizzle old candle wax from scented candles that have lost their fragrance. It works best from the jar candles on a candle warmer. Once it has cooled, I cut the sections of egg cradles to separate and put in a ziplock to keep dry. Just light the corner of the cardboard when placed under your tinder. Works great for charcoal BBQ's too! Source: I combined several tips. Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

Thanks to Connie for this: Q: How many women with PMS does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: One. ONE!! And do you know WHY it only takes ONE? Because no one else in this house knows HOW to change a light bulb. They don't even know the bulb is BURNED OUT. They would sit in this house in the dark for THREE DAYS before they figured it OUT. And once they figured it out they wouldn't be able to find the light bulbs despite the fact that they've been in the SAME CUPBOARD for the past SEVENTEEN YEARS. But if they did, by some miracle, actually find the light bulbs, TWO DAYS LATER the chair that they dragged from two rooms over to stand on to change the STUPID light bulb would STILL BE IN THE SAME SPOT!! AND UNDERNEATH IT WOULD BE THE CRUMPLED WRAPPER THE STUPID @*!#$% LIGHT BULBS CAME IN! WHY?! BECAUSE NO ONE IN THIS HOUSE EVER CARRIES OUT THE GARBAGE!! IT'S A WONDER WE HAVEN'T ALL SUFFOCATED FROM THE PILES OF GARBAGE THAT ARE 12 FEET DEEP THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE HOUSE. THE HOUSE!! IT WOULD TAKE AN ARMY TO CLEAN THIS . . .

>From Roland A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with four young mothers and their small children. "You all have obsessions," he observed. To the first mother, Mary, he said, "You are obsessed with eating. You've even named your daughter Candy." He turned to the 2nd mom, Ann and said, "Your obsession is with money. Again, it manifests itself in your child's name, Penny." He turned to the 3rd mom, Joyce. "Your obsession is alcohol. This too shows itself in your child's name, Brandy." At this point, the 4th mother, Mrs Smith, quietly got up, took her little boy by the hand, and whispered, "Come on, Dick, this guy has no idea what he's talking about. Let's pick up Peter and Willy from school and go get dinner for Rolly."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Charles Tapp, 24, Florida man charged with making meth on beach Charles J. Tapp is accused of making methamphetamine in his car at a Florida beach. The beach is a place for surf, sun and sand -- not meth making. However, a man in St. Petersburg, Florida, is facing drug charges after allegedly cooking up methamphetamine in his truck at Gandy Beach. Charles J. Tapp, 24, was arrested June 14 after deputies in Pinellas County noticed a dark colored Chevy Silverado parked along the beach's tree line. Tapp was in the truck as were several needles. An investigation of the vehicle turned up other items that indicated the suspect was making meth in it, WTSP TV reports. Tapp was arrested on charges of possessing methamphetamine and unlawful possession of pseudoephedrine and hydrochloric gas, chemicals used to make methamphetamine. Police said that Tapp admitted to manufacturing meth during questioning, according to the Tampa Bay Times. He was taken to the Pinellas County jail, and later released on $10,000 bail, according to the jail's website.

Firefox used to do that on my computer but stopped doing so several months ago, before the big upgrade. Is there something I can do to change that back? Thanks for all you do Len Dear Len The only real reason to turn that off is when many people use the same machine, and you don't want to let any of the others restore YOUR sessions. Any other time, it is best to leave Sessionrestore turned on. In the address bar, type in: about:config and hit Enter. You'll get a warning, ignore that. Now, find "browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash" in the list. Double-click that entry, and turn it to true OK out of there and it is done. There may be some weird exception, where some Windows setting will interfere with Sessionrestore, but so far I have not found anything about that setting. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Dry Erase Marker from Clothes I let my little grandson scribble with a dry erase marker and he got it all over his shirt. I was really surprised that it would be so difficult to get out. I tried all the tips listed, except for the ink remover. Alcohol did nothing, Goof-off did nothing. Murphy's Oil Soap finally began to budge the color. Then I remembered my Spot Shot carpet cleaner. That took it right out.

A newspaper reporter for the Los Angeles Times had received instructions from his senior editor to get photographs of a brush fire in the foothills of northern California. The instructions included hurrying to the Santa Monica Airport to board a small plane, taking some photos of the fire, and hurrying back by noon with the story. The reporter dressed quickly, rushed to the airport, saw the small plane waiting on the runway, drove his car to the end of the runway, parked, and climbed on board. Off they flew into the clear blue skies. At about 5,000 feet, the reporter took out his camera and said to the man flying the plane, "Bank right and I'll take some pictures of this fire." Then he heard the most frightening questions of his life, "Bank right? How do I do that? You ARE the instructor, aren't you?"

Three days later the circus owner runs back to the bar in anger, "Your duck is a rip-off! I put him on the pot before a whole audience and he didn't dance a single step!" "So?" asked the ducks former owner, "did you remember to light the candle under the pot?"

Out canvassing for a charity, my friend Irene and I knocked at a door. It was opened by a huge bear of a man, who was wearing a large black bra, over his shirt. Irene, being a devout Catholic, crossed herself, backed up ready to make a fast retreat. I asked politely for a donation, trying to keep my eyes from wandering to his protruding undergarment. He grinned evilly at me, "Wanna feel em?" Horrified, I turned to leave, when one side of his bra came alive with motion. Irene was now crossing herself with a flurry, muttering, "Jaysus, Mary and Murphy." She was begging the saints to protect her, when a tiny tail flipped out of his bra. "Oh my sweet Lord," she squealed, "He's got rats in his boobs," bolted for the car, offering up 'Hail Mary's.' as she tore off the porch. An old lady came out of the house, glared at the man, who just grinned back. He put his hands up to cradle both cups, which were now writhing with movement. She turned to me asking, "Did he ask you to play with them?" "Yes", I gulped. "Well," she said, patting my hand, " He's not too bright, but it's not what you think." She ordered him to pull his bra out so I could peek inside. Hesitantly I watched, while he pulled the garment down. When I got a good look I burst out laughing. Tiny muzzles with whiskers, long sinuous bodies, small heads with bright beady eyes, stared back at me. "Their mama died," he explained, " This bra is the perfect place to keep them warm." Both cups were filled to the brim with tiny baby ferrets.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Heather Rodriguez, 46, Provo, Utah Woman tried to buy meth from cop as birthday gift for her sister Police in Provo, Utah, have arrested a 46-year-old woman accused of attempting to buy methamphetamine from an off-duty police officer and claiming the purchase was a birthday gift for her sister. A police report shows Heather Rodriguez was arrested Monday evening after she approached the off-duty officer and displayed a glass pipe. Authorities say she then told police she was trying to buy methamphetamine for her sister's birthday. Records say she also told police the pipe was not hers and she was holding it for a friend. The Daily Herald reports Rodriguez was arrested and booked into the Utah County Jail on several drug charges. They did not state wheter she always looks like she had been left on the back of a pick-up too long, or if she tried that hairdo on purpose. Tech Support Pits From: CB Re: Fake McAfee virus Dear Webby: I have had a lot of computer issues lately which started with a popup message from McAfee that said I had a Trojan on my computer.. I could not get the pop up window to go away so I googled a help number for McAfee Anti-Virus plus and found an 800 number. I called it and "assumed" I was talking to McAfee Technical support...to make a long story short, I was actually connected with a company named IYOGI and they told me they could fix all my problems with their program- IYOGI Support Dock- $169.99 and a program called Total Defense- $29.99. Our of sheer frustration I agreed to this and they immediately charged my credit card. They did however, that evening, after 4 hours on the phone with them, and they had remote control of my computer, seem to fix the problem. The next day more troubles....................temp files, many of them, all over my desktop. I restarted the computer hoping that this would get rid of all the temp file but when I did, all I got was a blue screen saying Windows was configuring my computer..Do Not Turn your computer OFF. It froze at 35% and nothing else happened. I called the IYOGI people back because they had promised for the money I paid them, they would be available anytime I had computer problems. After another lengthy session on the phone with them, and they again had remote control of my computer, they advised I URGENTLY need to upgrade to Windows 8 instead of the Windows 7 Home Premium that I have and they tried to sell me Windows 8 for $170.00. I told them no thanks and they said that my Windows 7 Home Premium is what is causing all the problems and that the program is obsolete. I guess I have been duped by these people and I am embarrassed with myself that I didn't have the good sense to tell them no thanks, when I found out they were not McAfee. When you Google "McAfee Anti-Virus Plus" support help, their 800 number comes up. Is that even legal? I don't know what the future is for my computer... is there any truth to what they said...that I should get Windows 8 installed on my computer? Webby, thanks so much for any insight you can give me regarding this. I so appreciate your newsletter, and you!! C. B. Dear CB Sounds like you have been conned. Call your credit card company, report the crooks and cancel the charges. Those pop-ups are not from McAfee, but from the crooks. The same with the redirection of your browser to the fake McAfee site. As I have mentioned on this topic before, you need Malwarebytes to get rid of that Fake Mcafee Trojan. Both the fake and the REAL McAfee are scared of Malwarebytes. That is like both crooks and victims pissing themselves, when they see ROBO-COP. Ignore their hysterical warnings abut Malwarebytes interfering with their stuff. Go ahead and let Malwarebytes clean up the mess. IYOGI may have damaged your Windows7, but you or a local computer fixer can safely re-install Windows7 with a minimum of fuss or cost, AFTER you have made it safe with Malwarebytes. You do NOT need W8. It is even worse than W7 for you anyway. The REAL McAfee has nothing to do with your problem, and calling them is a waste of time. Proof, that the real Mcafee DOES need Malwarebytes on the side, to protect it from the fake one, is that the real McAfee was NOT able to stop the fake McAfee from infecting your machine. Mosquito mesh keeps out the bugs, but bears walk right through it. McAfee is OK for simple, every-day nuisances, but you do need Malwarebytes to protect the real Mcafee from the fake Mcafee and similar really dangerous stuff. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Glowsticks Instead Of Fireworks For The Fourth Of July We camp on the 4th of July in an area where fireworks are not allowed so we came up with this idea. Buy red, white and blue, (or whatever colors you choose) glowsticks, necklaces, etc. at your local 99 cent store. On the 4th, snap your glow sticks and play games of throwing them back and forth, or have contests to see how high someone can throw them in the air. We get creative every year we play with glowsticks on the 4th. It's so fun. By Marianne from Sacramento, CA Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Elizabeth Highley,56, Floriduh Spurned Woman Pulled Knife On Man A 56-year-old Florida woman is facing an assault rap after allegedly threatening a 25-year-old man with a knife after he “rejected her sexual advances,” police report. Elizabeth Highley (seen above) is scheduled to be arraigned July 11 on the felony charge, for which she is free on $3500 bail. According to an arrest affidavit, Elizabeth Highley was entertaining victim Crue Finley in her Jensen Beach home when trouble began around midnight on June 16. Finley told St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office deputies that he and Highley “are not a couple.” Finley, investigators reported, said that Elizabeth Highley “wanted to have sex,“ but he “rejected her sexual advances causing her to become angry and violent.” Elizabeth Highley allegedly grabbed a knife and sliced Finley’s left thumb as he fled her Windmill Village home. Cops subsequently encountered Elizabeth Highley as she ran after Finley, who is pictured below in an unrelated mug shot. Elizabeth Highley, carrying a large knife and a broken wooden cane, complied with Officer Paul Hutchinson’s order to drop the weapons and lie down on the ground. Elizabeth Highley, the cop noted, was “angry, crying and appeared to be intogschiggated” when taken into custody. She was released later in the day after posting bail on the aggravated assault count.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Getting Rid of Ants Without Poison I have had great success this year with using cinnamon on my kitchen counter and windowsill to keep the sugar ants at bay. So when I found ants congregating near my garage wall, I knew just what to do. We had recently moved a fridge and there was some leftover gunk underneath that the ants found. There were hundreds of them feasting. I went and grabbed my Costco sized spice bottle and then covered them with a heavy coating of cinnamon. Immediately, the ants scatter. They do not like the cinnamon at all. Within a few minutes, they were gone. I'll reapply cinnamon if I see any places where the ants are still getting through. It is non-toxic and frugal.

One eventually became an Admiral in the Navy, the other went into the Catholic Church and became a Bishop. As fate would have it, they happened to meet at the Airport. The Bishop spied the Admiral first and said loudly, "Oh Porter, from what gate is the flight to Dallas leaving?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Tavish Smith, Giggling woman busted for crashing truck, twice, and eating her pot in cop car cops say a Florida woman with a case of the giggles crashed her car and then tried to eat her stash of pot in the back of a squad car. Tavish Smith, 45, was pulled over June 13 on suspicion of DUI along U.S. 1 in Brevard County, Florida, after she allegedly crashed her truck, drove the wrong way on U.S. 1, then crashed again. The arresting officer put her in the back of his cruiser while he searched her truck. He allegedly found a small sandwich bag of marijuana in the vehicle, according to the New York Daily News. A surveillance video taken inside the squad car shows a woman identified as Smith denying the marijuana is hers. The suspect appears to wiggle out of her handcuffs, reach into the front seat of the cop car, and grab the pot-filled sandwich bag, according to police. Then she allegedly started to eat the cannabis, Local10.com reports. It was when she tried to slip back into her handcuffs that she was busted. "Do you have your handcuffs in front already?" The trooper asked in the video. "Did you slip out?" Smith said no. "I could have sworn I just saw you scratch your nose," the trooper said. "Oh yeah I did," Smith said. "Stay in your handcuffs please," the trooper said. "I hope that's not why this marijuana bag was open over here. Bags of weed just don't go missing inside a police car." Smith's alleged marijuana munching bumped what were misdemeanor charges up to a felony, according to WTSP TV. Smith has been released on bail, but she has been suspended from her job as an employee for a Brevard County judge, HLN TV reports.

The CIA loses track of one of its operatives, and so calls in one of their top spy hunters. The CIA boss says, "All I can tell you is that his name is Murphy and that he's somewhere in Ireland. If you think you've located him, tell him the code words, 'The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning.' If it's really him, he'll answer, 'Yes, and for mist at noon as well.'" So the spy hunter goes to Ireland and stops in a bar in one of the small towns. He says to the bartender, "Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for a guy named Murphy." The bartender replies, "You're going to have to be more specific because, around here, there are lots of guys named Murphy. There's Murphy the Baker, who runs the pastry shop on the next block. There's Murphy the Banker, who's president of our local savings bank. There's Murphy the Blacksmith, who works at the stables. And, as a matter of fact, my name is Murphy, too." Hearing this, the spy hunter figures he might as well try the code words on the bartender, so he says, "The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning." The bartender replies, "Oh, you're looking for Murphy the Spy. He lives next door, up on the second floor."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Derrick Price, 43, Orange County, Florida Running a strip club out of barber shop Get your ears lowered and your pants raised. That may have been the business model of a strip bar that was allegedly run out of a barber shop in Orange County, Florida. Undercover agents working for the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation conducted a many months long investigation of Super Fades barber shop before finally raiding the place early Sunday morning. MBI investigator Lt. Mike Gibson said the agents visited the barbershop by day and saw it turn into an illegal strip bar every Saturday night. “On each and every occasion they were serving alcohol and they had strippers. And, not strippers following local law, but strippers that went completely nude,” Gibson told WFTV TV. Along with the barber pole in front of Super Fades, there was a stripper pole installed inside the establishment. "That would have been a piece of equipment that was there even when they operated during the day while they acted as a barbershop," Gibson said, according to UPI.com Agents purchased $20 worth of illegal vodka at Super Fades early Sunday morning before discovering one of the dancers was a 17-year-old female. "As we were conducting the investigation, we were able to identify one of the dancers being a juvenile, and that led to the need to speed the investigation up," Gibson told WESH TV. Derrick Price, 43, the owner of Super Fades, was arrested and charged with allowing a worker to engage in nudity, allowing a person under 18 in an adult entertainment establishment, operation of an establishment without a valid license and possession of alcohol without a license with intent to sell. He was released after posting bond and is due in court on Monday. The 17-year-old who was allegedly stripping was also arrested. Gibson said the stripping pole has since been removed. Tech Support Pits From: Steve Re: Kasperski vs McAfee vs Malwarebytes Dear Webby your efforts in your newsletter continue to be greatly appreciated, as they have for a few years now. How does the kaspersky internet security malware detection compare to malwarebytes anti-malware you now tout ? Are malware programs similar to anti-virus programs in the respect of you do not want to run two programs concurrently ? How does spy-bot fit into the malware picture, it does cookies not malware ? Again thank you for your time & sharing your wisdom. steve j. Dear Steve Kasperski is the equivalent of McAfee. Some months McAfee is a nose ahead, some months it's Kasperski. Both are huge companies and not really known for good personal support. However, they generally run fine and very rarely require contacting their support. You can consider those two, and Vipre as well, as heavy bombers. Slow, and reasonably reliable. They try to be a total solution for everything, including blocking spam. However, they are rather klutzy about that. It is best to disable their email section. The same goes for Vipre. MalwareBytes by comparison is a fighter plane. It can take care of really nasty trojans, which disable McAfee and Kasperski. Malwarebytes also goes after "agreed to" nuisance stuff, like pop up ads, browser redirection, search engine redirection, etc. MalwareBytes does not care who agreed to that kind of crap. It recognizes crap and flushes it. Both Kasperski and McAfee try to uninstall Malwarebytes. They seem to be really jealous and envious and start a silly pissing contest. Most recommendations are that you stick with McAfee or Kasperski or Vipre for continuous routine protection, and use MalwareBytes just for extreme problems or "agreed to" crap. I have run machines with just MalwareBytes, and found it to be sufficient. Spybot-Search&Destroy is free and will get some light-weight stuff. Because it is free, it is a good idea to try that first, before spending money. Have FUN! DearWebby

An excerpt from brilliant Kentucky state legislation. "No female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she be escorted by at least two officers or unless she be armed with a club." The following important amendment however is to be considered here: "The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds, nor shall it apply to male horses."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Dewey Green, 23, Douglasville, Georgia Georgia driver, repeatedly ran over woman at traffic light A Georgia man is charged with murder after running over a woman with his car. Dewey Green, 23, drove up behind an SUV sitting at a traffic light in Douglasville on Wednesday afternoon. Green allegedly rammed the vehicle with his own car multiple times, according to WSBTV. The victim, 53-year-old Janice Pitts, got out to see how badly the SUV was damaged, and Green allegedly slammed into her, pinning the woman up against the vehicle. Pitts' adult daughter, Iesha Davis, tried to save her mother, jumping on Green's car and begging him to stop crushing the woman. Police say that after Green backed up and Pitt fell to the ground, he ran her over. He then allegedly backed up over her body again, according to AL.com “I'll never ever get the image of my mom lifeless body lying on the pavement and the man ran her over like she was nothing," Davis told WSBTV. Davis' 4-year-old son was also in the vehicle at the time. "Imagine your mother minding her own business and being killed brutally,'' Nakeeta Davis, Pitts' other daughter who was not at the scene of the crime, told AL.com. "This man was out to kill. He didn't stop until he got what he was after." Pitts, who died at the scene, was studying for a master's degree in psychology and was planning to open a non-profit for abused women and children. Acting District Attorney Brian Fortner told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that it does not appear Pitt and Green knew each other, and that there is no indication Green suffered from mental illness. Police say Green seemed dazed and confused and reeked of alcohol. “No doubt there's alcohol involved,” said Stan Copeland with Douglas County police. Officials are trying to determine if he was additionally under the influence of drugs. Tech Support Pits From: Kathy Re: Deleting files Hi Webby,a question please!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Monsters Be Gone Kit Made about a thousand of these, LOL! Supplies: Spray Bottle Lavender Oil Steps: Mix ten to twelve drops of lavender with water. Put the spray top on and label the bottle. Get a box and decorate it. Write on the side: "Monsters Beware Kit". On the other side, write "(Child's Name), Go Away I Say Kit!" Put spray, a tiny flashlight, and a small bell in the box. Tell the child to ring the bell, because monsters do not like bells (but really to wake up the parent) and take the flashlight and turn it on because they hate light. Then, spray the bed and under it to make them leave! Source: Me, tired of Grand-kids nightmares! By The Awesome Grandma [53] Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

Thanks to Linda for this story: As the owner of a clunker, I was used to dealing with a variety of car breakdowns. One day at the supermarket, just after I had filled my trunk with groceries, I noticed a stream of fluid pouring out of the bottom of the car. I knew I had to get home before the car was once again out of action. When I arrived I asked my husband to take a look at the problem. Expecting the worst, I braced myself for his diagnosis. When he came back in, he was smiling. "It's apple juice," he said.

Since this is their first party and the wife hasn't done much cooking, the husband suggests they order out for Chinese food and she could bake a cake for dessert. She agrees, but on Friday afternoon, the wife calls her husband in tears. "The only recipe I can find is for a cake that will feed four," she says. "Why don't you just double the recipe?" her husband asks. Just before quitting time the husband gets another call from her, and this time she is frantic. "I just can't do it," she says. "It's impossible." "Now, now, what's the matter?" "Well, I doubled everything, just like you said," she tells him, "and it's ready to go in the oven." "Then what's the problem?" he asks. The wife sobs. "The book says that the cake must be baked at 350 degrees. I've checked the oven and it doesn't go up to 700 degrees!" "That's probably metric, just bake it at 350, but don't double the time!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Wilhelmina Rodenhuis, 60, Grover Beach, California Woman, who deliberately sprayed weedkiller into a 7 year old girl's face. Grover Beach police arrested a woman Wednesday evening for spraying a child in the face with a weed killer. Detectives have not yet determined a motive, but police say that 60-year-old Julie Wilhelmina Rodenhuis approached a seven-year-old and sprayed pesticide in the child’s eyes. The incident occurred around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday in a condominium complex at 676 North 12th Street in Grover Beach. Family members immediately treated the child until medical responders arrived. The child received further treatment at a local hospital and was released. Officers charged Rodenhuis with child endangerment, assault with a deadly weapon and battery with serious child endangerment. Rodenhuis could receive addition charges. She is currently in San Luis Obispo County Jail on a $100,000 bond. No site lists a motive, just that Rodenhuis has been involved in many neighborhood disputes, that some have permanent restraining orders against her, and pretty well all local commenters agree that she is crazy. Tech Support Pits From: Lynn Re: Google Chrome infection? Dear Webby: It seems my Google chrome has an infected file because my McAfee (I don't believe it is really McAfee that keeps popping this window up)keeps popping up a window that says a Trojan has been found and if I restart my computer, it will be fixed. I restarted 4 times and the pop up that says it is from McAfee still says it has found and infected file and to restart my computer. I did a complete scan with my McAfee and it says: no issues found. I closed Google Chrome and am now using Firefox and the issue is gone. It only happens when I am using Google Chrome. Should I uninstall Chrome and re-install it as I like it better than Firefox? Any help you can give me will be appreciated. Many thanks C. Dear C Whatever you do, do NOT restart! That is a common ploy of many infections for installing a new super-user above you. Quite possibly your McAfee has been compromised, just like your Google Chrome. Now you need stronger medicine. See that big link at the top of the side menu? MalwareBytes That should clean the crap out of your machine. After that, uninstall McAfee and Chrome. Run Malwarebyts again to make sure the machine is clean. Then you can re-install a fresh McAfee, if you want it, and Chrome. Quite likely the infection started, when you agreed to something or other. That causes mcAfee to bow out and list that as something you want and agreed to, Malwarebytes is not that polite with crooked shit. No matter who agreed to it, out it goes. When Microsoft stopped allowing the round clock "gadet", I searched for an alternative and eventually found a site with hundreds of clocks. I picked one, and during the installation of it, hit Enter without reading the small print one time too often. And got infected. McAfee allowed that crap, since I had agreed to it. GRRRRR! So I installed MalwareBytes It cleaned out not only THAT infection, but a few more, that I suspected, but never had the time to hunt dwon. THAT is why MalwareBytes got the spot of honor on top of the recommended resources in the side menu. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Exchange Keys With A Neighbor My neighbor and I exchanged house keys so that we could enter each other's homes in case of an emergency or to feed pets while one of us is on vacation, etc. I bought two magnetic key holders and gave one to my neighbor to hide (I know where) on her porch for my house key and I put the other one under my metal mailbox with my neighbor's key in it. If someone happened to find the key holder, the key wouldn't work in the lock where the key is hidden and I doubt they would go around trying the neighbor's doors. Also, her kids often forget their keys and can get their spare after school to get into their own house even if I'm not home. By Susan from Pennsylvania Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

A customer was continually bothering the waiter in a restaurant; first, he'd asked that the air conditioning be turned up because he was too hot, then he asked it be turned down, because he was too cold, and so on for about half an hour. Surprisingly, the waiter was very patient, walking back and forth and never once getting angry. So finally, a second customer asked why didn't they just throw out the pest.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Latia Harris Woman Charged For Brutal Beating Caught On Tape JUNE 26--Police today charged a female McDonald’s employee for the vicious beating of a New Jersey woman whose two-year-old small son tried to stop the attack, a video of which went viral this week. Latia Harris, 25, has been named in a criminal complaint accusing her of aggravated assault and two counts of making terroristic threats, according to a court filing. The brutal attack occurred Tuesday evening in an open field behind a McDonald’s in Salem, a southwestern New Jersey city. Harris, pictured in the above driver’s license photo, was wearing her McDonald’s uniform as she punched, kicked, and spat on the 27-year-old victim, who was “covered in blood” when emergency service workers arrived at the scene (she was subsequently transported to a local hospital for treatment). A video of the attack was posted to Facebook, where it was copied by Salem police. Investigators reported that the victim told them that “Tia who works at McDonalds” assaulted her and accused her of spreading rumors about her and her McDonald’s manager. As seen on the video, during the assault Harris threatened to kick the victim’s son in the face. As his mother was being beaten, the boy kicked Harris several times in the leg. At the conclusion of the assault, Harris “spat on the victim and walked away asking those recording the incident not to post it on social media,” according to a police statement. The complaint alleges that Harris also threatened to shoot the victim “while punching her about the face.” Harris, who remains at large, has not reported to work since the June 24 incident. When she is apprehended, Harris will be booked into jail on the three felony counts, the bail for which has already been set at $35,000. Interesting to note, none of the half dozen or so dark skinned spectators lending moral support and apparently initial help holding the victim and kocking her down, helped the white victim in any way whatsoever.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning With Lemons Don't throw away those lemons after you've used them. They are great for scrubbing the kitchen sink. Simply take half a squeezed or unsqueezed lemon, dip it in some baking soda and scrub away. The baking soda will act as an abrasive while the lemon will help remove stains. You can also squeeze some lemon juice down the drain to help freshen it. For stronger odor elimination, just use some of the peel and turn on your disposer. Lemony fresh results every time.

Our priest suddenly became ill and asked his twin brother, also a priest, to fill in for him and conduct a funeral Mass scheduled for that day. His brother, of course, agreed. It was not until the brother was accompanying the casket down the aisle, however, that he realized that he had neglected to ask the sex of the deceased. This was information that he would need for his remarks during the service. As he approached the first pew where the deceased's relatives were seated he nodded toward the casket and whispered to one woman, "Brother or sister?" "Cousin," she replied.

He knew which room she was in at the hotel and called her up wondering what happened to her. She answered the phone, sobbing, and said she couldn't get out of her room. "You can't get out of your room?" the captain asked, "Why not?" The stewardess replied, "There are only three doors in here, "she cried," one is the bathroom, one is the closet, and one has a sign on it that says "Do Not Disturb!"

Reported by Walter, the StoneCarver An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Nicholas Wig, 26, South St. Paul, Minnesota Minnesota burglar robs home, leaves HIS Facebook profile open A Minnesota man came home to find his house unlocked, cash and other items missing, and the accused burglar's Facebook profile open on his computer, authorities said. Nicholas Wig, 26, who has been charged with second degree burglary, also left his wet jeans, shoes and a belt lying on the floor by the computer in the South St. Paul house, according to a criminal complaint. "This is the first case in Dakota County in which a suspected burglar left his Facebook account open," Monica Jensen, spokeswoman for the Dakota County Attorney's Office, said on Tuesday. According to the criminal complaint, a resident called police on Thursday and told them he found his house in disarray, the front door unlocked and a screen removed from a side window. He also saw that "Nick Dub's" Facebook profile was open on his computer, the complaint said. Items missing included cash, a checkbook, credit cards, keys and a watch, it said. That same day, the resident recognized Wig on the street from his Facebook picture and told police, who found him wearing a watch like one taken in the burglary, the complaint said. When police checked Wig for weapons, they found car keys and an iPod shuffle, which the resident identified along with the watch, the complaint said. Wig admitted entering the house, swapping his rain-soaked clothes for some from the house, logging on to Facebook and taking the items reported stolen, the complaint said. The felony charge calls for up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine, but he wil undoubtedly get a lot less than that.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning Cast Iron If cast iron is rusty, use steel pads to remove rust and wash in hot Dawn detergent really well. Dry cast iron. I use cooking oil to season the cast iron; using paper towel, rub oil generously onto cast iron, inside and outside. Place a heavy duty piece of foil on the shelf of the oven and turn thermostat to 350 degrees F. Place cast iron top side down and season for 1 hour. This will allow the excess oil to drain off the cast iron. Allow to cool and wash with warm water. No soap. My first item cooked in my iron skillets, is a pan of cornbread. I place 2 tablespoons of oil into the skillet and heat to slightly smoking and pour the mix into the skillet and bake at 400 degrees F. It slides right out. No sticking.

After driving all night, a man arrived in a small town where he decided to stop in the local park and catch some sleep. Just as he dozed off, there was a knock on the window. Outside the car, was a jogger. "Excuse me, can you give me the time?" the jogger inquired. "Groggily, the man replied, "It's 6:27." The man closed his eyes and just as he dozed off there was another knock on the window. There stood another jogger who said, "I'm sorry to disturb you. Do you have the time?", Struggling to keep up his spirits he replied, "It's 6:34." The man rolled up the window but realizing that this could go on indefinitely, he took paper and pen and created a sign which read: "I DO NOT KNOW THE TIME." He stuck the sign in the window, closed his eyes, and was barely asleep when there came yet another tap on the window. The man looked and sure enough, there was another jogger. He disgustedly rolled down the window and said, "Yeah, what is it?" The jogger replied, "It's 6:42."

Reported by Walter, the StoneCarver An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Richard Coleman, City of Leawood, Kansas Kansas boy forced to remove little free library from his yard Spenser Collins, 9, loves to read. The idea of sharing his love of books with his neighbors thrills him. So with the help of his parents, he set up a Little Free Library in their yard in Leawood, Kansas. But the town of Leawood decided the birdhouse-sized library was an illegal structure and the family was ordered to remove it. The family moved the Little Free Library into their garage. But they are looking to take the issue with City Hall, reported ABC affiliate KMBC. The little library, which was made by the boy’s grandfather, was capable of holding a few books. Like the Little Free Libraries across the country, it had a “take a book, leave a book” note taped on its door. The bookshelf sat next to a bench on the family's front yard, which was intended to provide a spot for readers to enjoy their books. "When we got home from vacation, there was a letter from the city of Leawood saying that it was in code violation and it needed to be torn down by the 19th or we would receive a citation," Spencer's mother, Sarah Collins told KMBC. The City of Leawood bans buildings that aren't attached to homes. Since the library was a free standing structure in the family's front yard, it was considered illegal. The city claims that they have received two complaints regarding the library, according to Richard Coleman, Leawood's director of community development. "First, there was just a library. Then, a bench was place next to it. I think people were concerned there would be more and more stuff at their front yard," Coleman told ABC News. “I find it rather humorous that the city [of Leawood] thinks it is illegal," said Todd Bol, who helped create the Little Free Library movement in 2009. "It is a sweet thing that brings the community together." Bol said the Little Free Library has worked well in some of the toughest communities across the country. There are more than 16,000 Little Free Libraries in 72 countries, according to Bol. Collins family has set up a Facebook page to inform supporters of their progress. The page has received over 17,000 "likes." "Our city law has been around for over a decade. This is the first time that we have had a problem with this," Coleman said. "We think that it is a great program. It's just that the current ordinance doesn't allow it." Tech Support Pits From: Bree Re: FireFox 30 Bugs Dear Webby I notice you mention FireFox 30. Is it safe, and what kind of bugs do we have to expect? Bree Dear Bree Yes, FireFox 30 is safe and works well. The only bug I have an issue with is that the top Windows bar bleeds down into the tabs. I have used a light green fading to dark green top bar for active windows since Windows 3.1, and red fading to dark red for inactive windows. You were probably still jail-bait in those days, but that has become my standard set-up. There is no logical reason for the Windows top bar to bleed down onto the tab colors.

While digging a shaft into the German homeland, German scientists discovered small pieces of copper at 50 meters. After studying these pieces for a long time, Germany announced that the ancient Germans 25,000 years ago had a nationwide telephone network. Naturally, the British government was not that easily impressed. The British ordered their own scientists to dig even deeper. At a depth of 100 meters, they discovered small pieces of glass. Soon the British announced that the ancient Brits 35,000 years ago already had a nationwide fiber net. Israeli scientists were outraged. They dug 50, 100, and 200 meters underground, but found absolutely nothing. The Israelis concluded that the ancient Hebrews 55,000 years ago had cellular telephones.

I have a little Satnav, I've had it most of my life It's better than the normal ones, My Satnav is my wife. It gives me full instructions, Especially how to drive "It's sixty miles an hour", it says, "You're doing sixty five". It tells me when to stop and start, And when to use the brake And tells me that it's never ever, Safe to overtake. It tells me when a light is red, And when it goes to green It seems to know instinctively, Just when to intervene. It lists the vehicles just in front, And all those to the rear And taking this into account, It specifies my gear. I'm sure no other driver, Has so helpful a device For when we leave and lock the car, It still gives its advice. It fills me up with counseling, Each journey's pretty fraught So why don't I exchange it, And get a quieter sort? Ah well, you see, it cleans the house, Makes sure I'm properly fed It washes all my shirts and things, And keeps me warm in bed! Despite all these advantages, And my tendency to scoff, I only wish that now and then, I could turn the bugger off!!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to John Balyo, Christian radio personality John Balyo admitted guilt in child-sex assault probe Authorities in Michigan say Christian radio personality John Balyo paid to have sexual encounters with minors. Homeland Security agents and officers from the Michigan State Police and Battle Creek Police Department arrested Balyo, 35, Friday at a Christian music festival in Gaylord, Michigan. Balyo is facing charges of first-degree (penetration) criminal sexual conduct, and has admitted guilt in ONE case, according to a press release by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. "Baylo paid a defendant, who is the subject of a separate child-exploitation investigation, to arrange sexual encounters with minor victims," investigators said in the press release. The man Balyo allegedly paid to arrange the encounters has been identified by police as Ronald Lee Moser. The 42-year-old was indicted earlier this month in federal court on child exploitation and child pornography charges. "They would meet in hotels in areas around Grand Rapids and Balyo would have sex with the children," a Homeland Security agent told Woodtv.com. Balyo's $500,000 bail has been revoked after his admission to one count, and more to be expected. Balyo was instantly fired from his radio host job.

Tech Support Pits From: Dana Re: FireFox 30 Forward and backward icons Dear Webby Version 30 of FireFox seems to work reasonably well, but of course the thilly brats had to change the user interface, so that we would notice that they are still on the loose. Now the Forward and Backward icons are gone. Restoring Default and laboriously getting all the prferences and stuff back the way it should be, does not help. However, at some random times those icons do appear! What is the story? Dana Dear Dana What we had wanted was the wastefully huge padding between icons removed. Unfortunately, whoever had put in the extra wide padding seems to have grown up and got a job somewhere. So, since they could not fix the padding, they made the NEXT and PREVIOUS icons "magic". If you open a tab from an email link, then there is no previous page to go to, so they don't show the PREVIOUS icon. The same for the NEXT. If you have not gone to a PREVIOUS page, then there is no NEXT page to return to, so they don't show the NEXT icon. It makes the top bar a bit spastic, but it does work, and now that you know what is going on, you will soon get comfortable with it. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning a Very Burnt Saucepan Cleaning a Very Burnt Saucepan I took a telephone call and completely forgot my saucepan boiling my Udon noodles. I didn't think anything would shift the burnt-on food. How wrong I was. I soaked the pot for two days with cheap cola (17p for 2 litres in my supermarket) and a dash of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda). I was then able to remove all burnt residue with a ball of foil and it came up as shiny as if it was new! By Monique [97] Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. "Do you need some help?" I asked. She replied, "I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door un-locker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant Home Hardware store) would have a battery to fit this?" "Hmmm, I Dunno. Do you have an alarm too?" I asked. "No, just this remote thingy," she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, "Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries? Or do you want to ride down there with me?"

Each evening bird lover Tom stood in his backyard, hooting like an owl - and one night, an owl finally called back to him. For a year, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. He even kept a log of the "conversation". Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife had a chat with her next door neighbor. "My husband spends his nights ... calling out to owls," she said. "That's odd," the neighbor replied. "So does my husband!"

Thanks to Kati for bringing back this classic: She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates and suitcases. On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things. On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table by candle-light, put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of beer. When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar into the hollow of the curtain rods. She then cleaned up the kitchen and left. When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days. Then slowly, the house began to smell. They tried everything; cleaning, mopping and airing the place out. Vents were checked for dead rodents and carpets were steam cleaned. Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked. People stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid quit. Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move. A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house. Word got out and eventually even the local realtors refused to return their calls. Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place. The ex-wife called the man and asked how things were going. He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely and said that she missed her old home terribly and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back. Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on a price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if she were to sign the papers that very day. She agreed and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paperwork. A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home. And to spite the ex-wife, they even took the curtain rods!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Chancy Layton, 19, St. Augustine, Floriduh Wanna-be Goldilocks breaks into house, steals wine, pajamas Chancy Layton claims a friend broke into the house where she drank wine and wore pajamas belonging to the owners, who found her asleep when they came home. The only things missing were the three bears. A real-life Goldilocks is accused of breaking, entering and making herself at home in a Florida house Friday night. But while a shower and a soft couch in an empty St. Augustine Beach home might have seemed just right to 19-year old Chancy Layton, her trespass was an unpleasant surprise for the homeowners. The owners returned home early Saturday and told a local news station that they were stunned to find Layton asleep on their couch, wearing their pajamas and surrounded by bottles of their wine. "Not what I expected to see when I walked into my house. We just stood there a bit, looking at each other, like, 'What do we do?'" homeowner Cheryl Petocz told News 4 Jax. "I told her I was calling police. As soon as I said that, she grabbed a few things and ran out the house, out the back door." The nursery rhyme scenario ended with charges of burglary, theft and criminal mischief for the blonde suspect, who left her purse and passport behind when she fled the scene, according to the arrest report. Police caught up with Layton a block away from the house, where she expressed remorse and wanted to return the pajamas she had stolen. Layton told police that a male friend had broken into the house earlier and told her it was empty. Her friend, whom she knew only as "Jeremy," left the balcony door open for Layton to enter, she told police. Layton was later booked into the St. Johns County jail, where she reportedly posted $8,000 bail and was released. Police are still trying to find "Jeremy."

Swampy Marsh, the young Australian father-to-be, is waiting anxiously outside the maternity ward where his wife is having their first baby. He is pacing the floor when the nurse comes out and says, "You have a little boy, Mr. Marsh, but you had better go out and have a cup of coffee, because there may be another one." Swampy turns a little pale and leaves. Some time later he phones the hospital and is told that he the father of twins, but the nurse cautions, "There is another on the way, so call back later." At that Swampy decides that coffee is not strong enough, so he goes to a bar and has some beer. When he phones the hospital again he is told that the third baby has arrived and a fourth is on the way. White-faced, he stumbles to the bar and orders a double scotch. Twenty minutes later, he tries to phone again, but he is so drunk that he dials the wrong number and gets the recorded cricket game score. When they pick him up off the floor the recording is still going strong: "The score is ninety-six all out," says the voice, "and the last one was a duck."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Robert Short, 64, Fresno, California Jailed for running a meth lab in a retirement home A 64-year-old man in Fresno, California, has been arrested for running a meth lab out of a retirement home. Fresno Police made the discovery Saturday after pulling over Robert Short, who was on parole on charges connected to selling methamphetamine. When officers checked his car, they say they found four ounces of crystal meth, along with small plastic bags and electronic scales, KMPH-TV reports. Officers then searched the suspect's home in a retirement village and found more meth, heroin and a small meth lab. All in all, the officers recovered a half pound of crystal meth with an estimated street value of $1,700, according to the Fresno Bee. Short's neighbors were shocked to find out they may have been living next door to a real-life episode of "Breaking Bad." "It's shocking, I would never guess that anything like that would go on at a senior citizen village," neighbor Robin Schramek told ABC30.com. Neighbors said that Short moved in about three or four months ago, but didn't get involved in the tight-knit community. ABC30.com reports that there were signs all over his front door demanding privacy and no visitors. Short was booked into the Fresno County Jail for charges including transportation of narcotics, possession for sale of narcotics and processing methamphetamine near a school campus. Tech Support Pits From: Billie Re: How to blur Dear Webby With my old camera I used to be able to have the prime object nice and sharp and everything else a bit blurred by precisely setting the distance. With my new camera everything is auto- matic and I can't set the distance. Is there a way to fake the same results? Billie Dear Billie With some digital cameras you can half depress the shutter button and force it to take a reading. Then you can move the camera and it will use that setting, when you fully depress the shutter. However, that does not always blur what is not in precise focus, especially with a small lens type camera and bright lighting. In the old days photographers smeared vaseline onto the lens and cleaned the portion they wanted sharp with an alcohol soaked swab. With a large lens camera you can still do that, but I would not really advise it. The alcohol can affect the coating on the lens. It is a lot more precise and predictable to do the blurring after you got the picture onto the computer. Any graphics program like PaintShopPro or GIMP or Photoshop will do it nicely. Use the retouching tool, set it to a round shape and a hardness of about 50%. Select it to SOFTEN. Then wipe it from the edges in towards the area that you want to leave sharp and crisp. You can also use the irregular shape election tool, lassoo the sharp area, invert the selection, and then blur or soften the entire selected area in one shot. Have FUN! DearWebby

By then, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around. The elderly man fussed and complained all the way back to the restaurant.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Kisha Young, 38, Crowley, Texas Texas mom jailed after kids tumble from atop car during high speed turn Worried that her car’s interior would get soaked, a Texas woman directed six children fresh from a community pool to sit atop her vehicle’s trunk for the one-mile drive home Tuesday evening. That decision resulted in Kisha Young’s arrest when the children fell from the Chevrolet Malibu around 8:30 PM when the 38-year-old--who was allegedly intoxicated--made a sharp turn on a residential street in Crowley, a city 15 miles south of Fort Worth. Four of the six children flung from the car were injured, with a 12-year-old girl requiring hospitalization for a severe head injury. According to the Crowley Police Department, the six children range in age from 8 to 14. According to cops, Young and another woman in the car were the mothers of the children, who were “allowed” to ride atop the Chevy “because their clothes were wet.” Young, seen in the above mug shot, was initially arrested for intoxication assault with a vehicle and booked into custody. She has subsequently been hit with two other felony charges, injury to child and driving while intoxicated with a child under the age of 15. During an arraignment this morning at the Crowley Jail, Young’s bond was set at $110,000.

And it is free. With MS Office you would need to buy a license for each machine. With the free Open Office you got everything, from settings and preferences to your documents, spreadsheets and pictures on your portable hard drive, and basically just "borrow" the keybaord and the printer and hardware of the computer that you plug it into. The included features are about the same as far as common stuff is concerned. With rarely or never used stuff, that only magazine writers, who never ever paid for anything, use, MS-Office tends to come out slightly ahead. That seems to be due to the huge Microsoft ads in those magazines. Down here in reality, Open Office seems to be a better choice. One permanent bone of contention is the "Microslop" caused by MS-Office programs. Their cutesy fancy left and right leaning quotes and similar stuff, that is not in the standard ASCII set of characters, cause weird characters to appear when sent. I am sure you have seen Greek or Scandinavian characters in mails from people, who use Microsoft office. Apparently that thilly nonsense can be turned off, but none of the MS-Office users seem to know how. If all you do is send beautiful memos in a circle inside a company, where every machine has MS-Office, then those memos are indeed more beautiful with MS-Office. However, sent over the net they stink. With Open Office you don't have to worry about that, and everybody anywhere receives them looking exactly the way you wrote them. The future is definitely with Open Office. Even if the cost of MS-Office is dropped to 1/10 of what it is now, with companies, that have hundreds or thousands of machines, the choice is pretty clear. By the way, Open Office reads MS-Office documents and can even save them in MS-Office format. MS-Office can now do much of the same. You can download Open Office free at http://www.openoffice.org/ Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com DIY Bleach Gel Pen In a saucepan, add 2 Tbsp. of cornstarch to 1 cup of water. Stir until dissolved. Place mixture on the stove and stir until it comes to a boil. Turn off stove. The mix will become really thick. Let it cool completely. Then add 5-6 Tbsp. of bleach. It will turn into a gel. If it's thicker or thinner, just adjust water and cornstarch until you get the result you are looking for. Pour mix into an empty squeeze bottle for dispensing. So much cheaper and works great.

>From Erin A few years ago we were desperately trying to sell our house, which was situated on a busy thoroughfare. Our real estate agent decided to have open-house inspection nearly every day to promote the sale. We instructed the children not to talk to anyone about the house. One evening a man took our seven-year-old daughter aside and asked if our house had any secrets he should know. Her first reaction was to smile and ignore his question. But he became more persistent and, finally, she confessed there was one secret but she could not tell it to him. "Now we're getting somewhere," he said. "Tell me the secret. I promise I won't tell anyone." She looked him straight in the eye and whispered, "We have monsters in the sewer."
In his Sunday sermon, the minister used "Forgive Your Enemies" as his subject. After the sermon, he asked how many were willing to forgive their enemies. About half held up their hands. Not satisfied, he harangued the congregation for another twenty minutes and repeated his question. This received a response of eighty percent. Still unsatisfied, he lectured for fifteen more minutes and repeated his question. All responded except one elderly gentleman in the rear. "Mr. Jones, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?" "I don't have any." "Mr. Jones, that is very unusual. How old are you?" "One hundred and one." "Mr. Jones, please come down in front and tell the congregation how a man can live to be one hundred and one and not have an enemy in the world." The old man teetered down the aisle, slowly turned to face the congregation, smiled and said, "I outlived every one of them SOBs!"

In the subway train the conversation turned to the merits and demerits of various ways of preserving health. One stout, florid man held forth with great eloquence on the subject. "Look at me!" he said. "Never a day's sickness in my life, and all due to simple food. Why, gentlemen," he continued, "from the age of twenty to that of forty I lived an absolutely simple regular life --- no effeminate delicacies, no late hours, no extravagances. Every day, in fact, summer and winter, I was in bed regularly at nine o'clock and up again at five in the morning. I worked from eight to one, then had dinner--a plain dinner, mark my words: after that, an hour's exercise; then.." "Excuse me, sir," interrupted the facetious stranger in the corner, "but what were you in prison for???"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Deshandre Billups, 26, and Kirk Cartwright, 33 in jail in Lake City, Floriduh Florida Inmates Smuggle Gun Into Prison and shoot themselves to attempt blackmail of the jail . The two Florida inmates, along with five others, were arrested Tuesday in what authorities describe as a plot to sue the Florida Department of Corrections, according to My Fox Orlando. The department began its investigation in March after Billups and Cartwright were shot with a .25-caliber Beretta inside the Columbia Correction Institution in Lake City. Cartwright, 33, and Billups, 26, told guards that they were shot by an unknown assailant while they were praying in their cell. Nobody, of course, believed that. With the help of friends, family members and a third inmate, the suspects allegedly smuggled the semi-automatic pistol into the prison through the mail, according to The Florida Times-Union. They allegedly had plans to shoot themselves and sue the prison system in an effort to settle for reduced sentences. Authorities say they regularly snuck cellphones and drugs into the prison. They face five new felony charges, including firearm possession by a felon and several counts of contraband possession for the cellphones. Cartwright was already serving a life sentence for murder and Billups was serving 20 years for armed robbery and burglary, WTAQ reports. The third inmate who allegedly helped them, 21-year-old Tony Underwood, is charged with introducing contraband into the prison. He's serving a six-year sentence for burglary and grand theft. Cartwright's girlfriend and Billups' mother were arrested Tuesday on charges stemming from the investigation. Arrest warrants have also been issued for Cartwright's sister and Underwood's girlfriend.

Joe, the Governor's most trusted assistant, died in his sleep one night. The Governor had depended on Joe for advice on every subject, from pending bills to wardrobe decisions. In addition, Joe had been his closest friend. So, it was understandable that the Governor didn't take kindly to the droves of ambitious office seekers who wanted Joe's job. "They don't even have the decency to wait until the man is buried," the Governor muttered. At the funeral, one eager beaver made his way to the Governor's side. "Governor," the man said, "is there a chance that I could take Joe's place?" "Certainly," the governor replied. "But you'd better hurry. I think the undertaker is almost finished."

There are these two statues in a park; one of a nude man and one of a nude woman. They had been facing each other across a pathway for a hundred years, when one day an angel comes down from the sky and, with a single gesture, brings the two to life. The angel tells them, "As a reward for being so patient through a hundred blazing summers and dismal winters, you have been given life for thirty minutes to do what you've wished to do the most." He looks at her, she looks at him, and they go running behind the shrubbery. The angel waits patiently as the bushes rustle and giggling ensues. After fifteen minutes, the two return, out of breath and laughing. The angel tells them, "Um, you have fifteen minutes left. Would you care to do it again?" He asks her, "Shall we?" She eagerly replies, "Oh, yes, let's! But let's change positions. This time I hold the pigeon down and you crap on its head!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Suzanne Hussain,34, Calhoun, Georgia Naked Woman Vandalized, Flooded Stranger's Home A woman in Calhoun, Georgia, came home to a big surprise: Her home was looted and filled with water. The woman called deputies and when they investigated the house, they allegedly found an even bigger surprise: A naked woman hiding in one of the closets. The naked woman in question was Suzanne Hussain, 34, who lives about seven miles away and didn’t know the homeowner, according to Sheriff Mitch Ralston of the Gordon County Sheriffs Office. “Ms. Hussain was in fact nude, and was acting abnormally, but was taken into custody without further incident,” Ralston posted on the sheriff’s office website. An estimate of the destruction's cost has not been released, but Ralston described the house as "extensively damaged." Investigators have not determined any motive. Hussain was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated. After her release, she was arrested and charged with burglary and criminal damage to property, WSB TV reports. Hussain is still in jail awaiting a bond amount. She is also being held on a probation violation for a prior charge of possession of methamphetamine. Tech Support Pits From: Richard Re: Computer for Europe I have to go to Europe for six month. Can my computer be adapted to work over there, or would it be better to buy one there? I also have an Iomega remote hard drive. Does that one work there? Thanks Richard Dear Richard Yes, they all work just fine in Europe. Take along the power bar that you use now, but cut the plug off. When you get there, go to the nearest hardware store or supermarket and buy a regular plug. Each country there has a different plug, and some countries have different ones in different regions. All that talk about a united and standardized Europe is just BS. The only thing they all have in common is a dislike for Americans. Get the local plug and attach it to the power bar cord. Then look at the back of your computer for a tiny, red slide switch. Sometimes it is covered by tape to keep kids from playing with it. Use a pen or small screwdriver to slide that switch to the 220 setting. The same with the monitor, unless it already has a 100 - 240 Volt rating printed on the back. The Iomega remote hard drive doesn't care what voltage you power it with. It adapts automatically for anything between 100 and 240. You COULD get an adapter for the area that you go to, but they cost 8 - 10 times more than an ordinary power plug, plus shipping. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Saving Money on Hand Soap Here is how I save money on soap. I do not have a brand loyalty, so when I see soap at rummage sales and garage sales, I buy it, often at 10-25 cents a bar. Often it is something fancy from a gift set. I have not paid full price for years. When my soap bars get small, I save them in a paper cup. When I have a good amount of these scraps, I grate them and add just enough water to make the crumbs stick together in a clay-like consistency then I form it into bars by hand. I let it dry a bit, for a week or so, before using. It lasts a long time. Use these for everyday hand-washing and bathing and save some of the designer soap for when you have company.

In the morning they thought of a plan. They made themselves look as dirty and weird as they could with grease and dirt. They went up to the dean and explained that they had gone out to a wedding last night and on their return the tire of their car burst. They continued to explain how they had to push the car all the way back and that they were in no condition to appear for the test. The dean, being a compassionate human being said that they could rtake the test after 3 days. The students garaciously replied that they'd be ready by that time. On the third day, they appeared before the dean. The dean explained that since this was a special test all four were required to sit in separate classrooms for the duraction of the exam. They all agreed as they had prepared well in the last three days. The test consisted of 5 questions with total of 100 points: FINAL COURSEWORK EXAMINATION INSTRUCTIONS : All questions are required. Any inconsistencies on any of the questions among the four students will result in all the candidates getting a zero mark. Q.1. Write down your name. ----- (2 POINTS) Q.2. Write the name of the bride and bridegroom at the wedding you attended. ----- (30 POINTS) Q.3. What type of a car were you driving? ------(20 POINTS) Q.4. Which tire burst? ------- (28 POINTS) Q.5.

Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, June 19.

My first cataract operation is over. Now my good eye
is great at distances of 30 feet or further, but of no
help at the computer. The left eye has a focus at 12 inches,
which is a bit too close for comfort. However, the biggest 
hassle is that the focus is shifted sideways. When closing
one eye, then the other, a street light appears to jump
not only 100 feet closer, but to the nearer side of the 
street.

Working with that is only possible by putting some paper
over the fixed eye, which right now is not much good at 
less than 30 feet anyway, and work with just the weak left 
eye. 

I'll take the paper out tomorrow and go for a 3 - 4 mile walk
and hope to train the focus onto the same side of the 
street.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Dustin D. Clouse, 20, Decatur, Indiana Indiana bonehead leads Police on 2 hour tractor chase An Indiana man led police on a slow-speed, 2 hour tractor chase that crossed the state line. Monday evening in Decatur, Indiana, 20-year-old Dustin D. Clouse allegedly tried evading police who were responding to a vandalism call, WISH-TV reported. With only a tractor as his getaway vehicle, Clouse managed to reach a whopping top speed of 18 miles per hour, police said. Police said Clouse refused to pull over, despite driving over stop sticks which caused his tires to go flat. Clouse allegedly tried swerving into a deputy and attempted to ram multiple patrol cars, according to WANE. Video captured by a witness shows Clouse cruising down a rural road, police in front and behind him in pursuit. Two hours later, Clouse's tractor malfunctioned after crossing the state line into Ohio. Police said they had to eventually use a Taser to take the suspect into custody. They really suspected him, “This was an unusual pursuit, we are happy that no one from the public, Mr. Clouse, or law enforcement was injured,” Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey told WANE. “Law enforcement agencies from both states worked well together to bring this to a safe conclusion.” Clouse was charged with a felony for fleeing and eluding law enforcement, according to Indiana News Center. It is not likely that it was his tractor. Otherwise he wouod not have driven over the stop-sticks and disks. Those tires are rather expensive! Once they add all the interstate charges for taking a stolen vehicle across state borders, it is going to work out to some serious time on the chain gang. He is no Duke of Hazard!

Gmail's shift away from reliability towards Censorship 




Good Morning,  !
Today is Tuesday, June 17.

Gmail's shift of focus away from becoming a reliable email 
service and towards becoming snooty and unresponsive 
censors is really changing the email landscape. Right
now they are making Incredimail and Hotmail look GOOD
by comparison. Icloud is gaining in popularity too.

Please tell me what alternatives you have found, and
especially your experiences with them.

Since Gmail is not reliable any more, and you never know
what they have censored, hidden or cut, finding a decent
alternative is getting urgent!

Personally, I don't have that problem, because I use mail 
at webby.com. I just use Gmail on the side for test purposes,
to check now and then how the Humor letter appears on Gmail.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Glamor shot from her FaceBook Tashena Whitaker, 30, Taos, New Mexico Nude Guy Causes Chain-Reaction Highway Crash Truck-surfing dope, 27, fell onto New Mexico hwy A naked man truck surfing atop a Ford Ranger as it traveled on a New Mexico highway fell off the vehicle and triggered a chain reaction crash that left a motorcyclist seriously injured, police report. As detailed in a probable cause statement, a passing motorist told cops that he spotted a naked man standing on the truck as it drove along State Road 522 in Taos last Friday night. The man, later identified as Alexander Werner, 27, fell off the truck “and was lying on the side of the road.” A motorcyclist traveling in the opposite direction “was slowing down because of Mr. Werner lying in the road” when he was rear-ended by a Ford van. The motorcyclist, who is not identified in court papers, suffered a “major head injury” and was transported to a local hospital for treatment. Investigators allege that Tashena Whittaker (seen above) helped Werner back into the Ford Ranger, which she was driving. The duo then drove away from the scene of the accident. They were subsequently pulled over by a patrolman about two miles down the road. “Mr. Werner had injuries from the fall and he declined medical attention,” an investigator reported. Werner and Whittaker were each arrested for leaving the scene of an accident causing great bodily harm, a felony. Werner was also charged with indecent exposure and failure to wear a seat belt, both misdemeanors. Whittaker was also hit with a misdemeanor count for driving without a license. A judge set Whittaker’s bond at $10,000 and scheduled her for a June 19 preliminary hearing. Court records do not list bond information or court dates for Werner. Werner’s rap sheet includes prior arrests in the state of Washington for drunk driving, assault, and criminal mischief. Whittaker, a Tennessee native, is a mother of two young girls. On her Facebook page, Whittaker describes herself as a “polytheist” who will “bow only to the old gods and goddesses.” 'Act your age': A judge scolded the 30-year-old mother of two, telling her in court: 'You're too old to be doing stupid stuff like that'. Tech Support Pits From: Peggy Re: Gmail's red banner Do you know about this? Â I'm afraid to click on your emails anymore! Â Please let me know if it is alright to do so! Â Hugs and blessings! Peggy Dear Peggy Yes, my emails are OK, even though the Sniveling Ninnies at Gmail snivel about it. The Sniveling Ninnies think that because Thriftyfun links to Myfrugallife.com, and that FRUGAL sounds dirty to semi-literate North Koreans, they put that silly idiot-banner on.

Kind friend, it works every time for me! Have fun and a good day! ~Sir Squirrel~ ============== Just do the same as what Sir Squirrel suggested. Making a filter, as I have suggested probably more than a dozen times, also helps. Tell the filter to NOT put it into Spam, and to mark it as important. That normally does the trick. I realize that Gmail is too primitive to filter mails into different folders, but you can assign a category letter to emails. Unless you have already assigned the letter H to something else, tell the filter to assign the letter H to the Humor Letter. That too seems to help. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Milk Jug Electric Cord Reel I use the electric leaf blower frequently to blow off the porch and carport. I've just been looping the cord and laying it across the blower for storage and having to untangle it every time I use it. I told my husband that we needed to purchase a reel to keep the cord on. A reel makes it easier to store the cord and keeps it from getting tangled up. The idea popped into my head to use a milk jug so I gave it a try and it works. I cut out a section opposite the handle to make some sides to hold the cord. Holding the jug by the handle, I wrapped the cord around the jug. This works, however, I think a heavier jug will work even better. I may not have to spend money on a reel after all. By Betty from NC Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

Taking his seat in his chambers, the judge faced the opposing lawyers. "So," he said, "I have been presented, by both of you, with a bribe." Both lawyers squirmed uncomfortably. "You, attorney Morris, gave me $15,000. And you, attorney Campos, gave me $10,000. In all honesty I cannot accept two bribes. It just would not be fair." The judge reached into his pocket and pulled out a check. He handed it to Morris saying, "Now then, I'm returning $5,000, and we're going to decide this case solely on its merits!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Brittany Macintyre, 20, Tewksbury, New Hampshire Busted for prostitution at town library Earlier this week a New Hampshire woman was arrested for offering sex for cash at a suburban Massachusetts library. On Tuesday, police in Tewksbury got a tip that there was a woman working as a prostitute out of the town library. An undercover cop went to check it out that evening. He said that within moments of entering, Brittany Macintyre, 20, approached him with a pad and pen, and the two began passing notes. (You know, because it's the library and you should respect people's peace and quiet while engaging in your illicit transaction.) Eventually, according to police, Macintyre offered to perform a sex act on the cop in exchange for $60. She was arrested on charges of prostitution. Police say she was also wanted on drug charges. Back on Valentine’s Day, Macintyre was arrested for illegal possession of cocaine and heroin in Methuen.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Never Mix Cleaners or Household Chemicals For the fourth time in less than a year, I have responded to a med call where someone mixed household chemicals. Never, ever, in any form or combination, mix bleach with any other chemical. Do not mix vinegar with any other chemical. Do not mix ammonia with any other chemical. This includes general cleaning, in your mop water, in the dishwasher and washing machine. It can actually kill humans and pets. By mom-from-missouri [178] Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Marissa Williams, 19, Tuscaloosa, Alabama Aunt Befriends Niece With Fake Facebook Account; Niece Allegedly Asks Her To Murder Family An Alabama woman's duplicitous attempt to befriend her niece with a fake Facebook account may be what saved her life. The niece was allegedly looking for someone to murder her entire family, including the aunt who set up the fake account. Marissa Williams, 19, is in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on charges of solicitation of murder. Authorities said she asked a person she met on Facebook named "Tre Topdog Ellis" to pretend to kidnap her and kill her family, along with the family dog. But Ellis was actually Williams' aunt, who set up the bogus Facebook account in May in order to teach her niece a lesson about the dangers of social media. The name of Williams' aunt has not been released, but the suspect has been living with her since April. The relationship was strained because Williams kept inviting strangers she met on Facebook over to the house, WSB TV reports. The aunt's experiment didn't go as planned. On May 24, the very first day of online interaction, Williams gave the fictional boy her phone number and address, and asked him to come over and get drunk. She also offered to have sex with him if he'd pay her $50 phone bill, AL.com reports. As the two conversed in the coming days, the suspect allegedly asked her Facebook friend to kidnap her and take her away from her family, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The aunt didn't call police at first, but changed her mind when Williams suggested that "Tre" shoot and kill her family. Williams allegedly gave instructions on how to break into the aunt's room.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Polishing Silver In a small pot (the pot's size depends on what you're cleaning), place water to where it will cover the item being cleaned. Add 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. salt, and a capful of white vinegar. Then place the silver (silverware, etc.) on top a piece of aluminum foil with the shiny side down in pot, submerge it, then bring pot to a boil. Turn the silver or whatever it is on the other side, and you should see beautiful shiny silver on the side that was submerged. Don't ask me how it works but it really does. By Ms_Thrifty from Houston, TX The tarnish, Silver Oxide, gives it's Oxygen to the Aluminum, which desperately wants to become Aluminum Oxide. That turns the Silver Oxide back into Silver. The baking Soda accelerates the process. Vinegar and salt are optional. You still have to polish the silver afterwards with a linen or MicroFiber cloth to get a nice shine and slow down the inevitable future tarnishing. Inevitable, unless you do the final rub with a cloth dampened with a non-rancid oil like WD40 or gun oil. Those oils keep the oxygen away from the silver, and are easily polished off before using the utensils. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Gary Drake, 61, Minnesota Man threatens neighbor with a gun over bike-riding lesson A Minnesota man faces second-degree assault and terroristic threat charges after allegedly threatening a neighbor with a shotgun over the way the neighbor was teaching his 7-year-old daughter to ride a bike. When Gary Drake, 61, yelled some tips from his driveway on May 25, the neighbor told him, "I've got it." That got Drake mad, according to the criminal complaint, and he allegedly responded: "If you don't like my advice, get off my street." The neighbor told Drake that he didn't own the street in Rosemount and that the lesson would continue, TwinCities. com reports. As the bike lessons went on, Drake became increasingly agitated that his advice was ignored. So he went inside and came back out with a long-barreled gun and allegedly threatened the father and his 7-year-old daughter. Drake's wife eventually pulled the gun away and dragged him inside the house. A few moments later, he was back outside. As the neighbor and his daughter walked away, Drake allegedly yelled, "I'm going to kill ya," CBS Minneapolis reports. When police arrived on the scene, Drake allegedly told them he didn’t like how the neighbor treated his daughter. Drake also said he had been drinking but denied alcohol had anything to do with what the complaint refers to as "poor decision-making," according to the Star-Tribune. Drake said that perhaps he should have been more drastic. "Maybe next time. I should have shot him," MyFoxTwinCities reports. His wife told police she tried to stop her husband and she gave them the shotgun and another rifle. Drake is free on bail and is due for a court appearance on Aug. 11. --------------- About a dozen years ago I flew to Florida to teach Sandie to ride her brand new Harley VR, and to grasp "counter-steering". I was a bit concerned about the racket her Harley VR with straight pipes made on her residential street, as she was cruising up and down doing a slalom around the dotted center line. However, people there did not seem to mind. Some came out to cheer her on, a few even took pictures of her. Being comfortable with counter-steering saved her live quite a few times in dicey traffic situations. Being able to correctly and instantaneously lean and gun it out of a bad situation is extremely important. I wish every new rider was taught how to do that!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Kiddie Pool As Cooler When cooking and serving out-of-doors, pick up one of those cheap, rigid plastic kiddy pools, fill it with ice, and set bowls of cold foods in the ice. You can also keep cans of juice or soda pop in the pool. We've been using this method for keeping foods cold when we're cooking outside and on picnics for over 40 years and have never lost a potato salad yet. If it's a big party, by all means use 2 pools, one for drinks and one for foods. I think they take up less room than all the bowls and containers sitting out too.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Lidia Zuradzka, 52, WHEELING, Illinois Kentucky Man Wearing Marijuana-Themed T-Shirt Busted On Marijuana Trafficking Charge A Kentucky man wearing a narcotics-themed t-shirt was arrested last night for marijuana trafficking following a traffic stop, police report. A search of Andrew Anderson’s vehicle turned up packages of pot and cash that investigators concluded represented the proceeds of drug sales. As seen in Anderson’s booking photo, the 22-year-old had on an “All my friends are baked” t-shirt when collared.

Tech Support Pits From: Brittny Re: Graphics program Dear Webby I need a complete graphics program, but I can't afford photoshop oreven your favorite PSP. Is there one, that is free or nearly free? I am not used to and stuck on any graphics program, and would prefer to stay away from cracked, illegal versions. Thanks Brittny Dear Brittny There IS indeed a program written for you and Millions like you: GIMP It is not gimpy at all but the GNU Image Manipulation Program and is totally free. The manual is at http://www.gimp.org/docs/ Downloads are at http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ Don't get it from scam sites, that will let you have an old download, IF you agree to let them install a tool bar or other malware. Like many popular programs, it has attracted scammers trying to cash in on a good name. Always go straight to Gimp.org and avoid the scammers. As far as I know, you can do anything you want with Gimp, that could be done with Photoshop, but just like Photoshop, very few people get even near the limits. It has built in help, and also complete manuals in many languages. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Citronella Soap as Mosquito Repellent I tried the 50/50 baby oil and vinegar as a mosquito repellent and I still got bitten. I tried using citronella soap and put it all on my legs and arms and the mosquitoes did not bite me at all. Just put water on the citronella soap and spread it all over the exposed legs/arms. Do not rinse it off. I am so happy and I don't have to use the chemical spray "Off" on my body anymore. Best of luck to all who get mosquito bites.

Classic! A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He asked his father, who was a minister, if they could discuss his use of the car. His father said to him, "I'll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study your Bible a little, and get your hair cut, then we will talk about it." A month later the boy came back and again asked his father if they could discuss his use of the car. His father said, "Son, I'm real proud of you. You have brought your grades up, you've studied your Bible diligently, but you didn't get hair cut!" The young man waited a moment and replied, "You know dad, I've been thinking about that. You know Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair." His father replied, "Yes son, and nobody lent a car to them either!"
Two priests died at the same time and met Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter said, "I'd like to get you guys in now but our computer's down. You'll have to go back to Earth for about a week but you can't go back as humans. What'll it be?" The first priest says, "I've always wanted to be an eagle, soaring above the Rocky mountains." "So be it," says St. Peter and off flies the first priest. The second priest mulls this over for a moment and asks, "Will any of this week 'count', St. Peter?" "No, I told you the computer's down. There's no way we can keep track of what you're doing. The week's a freebie." "In that case," says the second priest, "I've always wanted to be a stud." "So be it," says St. Peter and the second priest disappears. A week goes by, the computer is fixed, and the Lord tells St. Peter to recall the two priests. "Will you have any trouble locating them?" He asks. "The first one should be easy," says St. Peter. "He's somewhere over the Rockies, flying with the eagles. But the second one could prove to be more difficult." "Why?" asketh the Lord. St. Peter answered, "He's on a snow tire somewhere in Alaska."

Of course I discarded the note and enjoyed the newsletter. However I understand that Google owns the service, and then why North Korean "censors" are mentioned in your newsletter as being the ones interfering with the service? Thank you Rolando Dear Rolando People use Gmail for receiving and sending email, not for having their email censored by some incompetent do-gooders acticng like North Korean email censors. Whether the Gmail censors are real North Koreans, or just act like they were, is not known for sure. I had to cut the link to MyFrugalLife,com, because they thought it was naughty and cut emails to some people because of it. I would love to frugal their turnip and inject some brains! On other reader's newsletters they cut out the vote button, claimed it was phishing. Before the North Korean Censors took over, Gmail was an excellent email system.

A new miracle doctor was in town. He could cure anything and anybody, and everyone was amazed with what he can do. Everyone except for Mr. Smith, the town grouch. So Mr. Smith went to this 'miracle doctor' to prove that he wasn't anybody special. "Hey, doc, I have lost my sense of taste. I can't taste nothin', so what are ya goin' to do?" The doctor scratches his head and mumbles to himself a little, then tells Mr. Smith, "What you need is jar number 43." Jar number 43? Mr. Smith wonders. So the doctor brings the jar and tells Mr. Smith to taste it. He tastes it and immediately spits it out, "This is gross!" he yells. "I just restored your sense of taste Mr. Smith," says the doctor. That will be $100. So Mr. Smith goes home very mad. One month later, Mr. Smith goes back to the doctor along with a new problem, "Doc," he starts, "I can't remember!" The doctor scratches his head and mumbles to himself a little and tells Mr. Smith: "What you need is jar number 43..." Before the doctor finished his sentence, Mr. Smith fled the office.

David and Bernice had just given their teenage daughter family-car privileges. On Saturday night she returned home very late from a party. The next morning her father went out to the driveway to get the newspaper and came back into the house frowning. At 11:30am the girl sleepily walked into the kitchen, and her father asked her, "Sweetheart, what time did you get in last night?" "Not too late, Dad." she replied nervously. Dead-panned, her father said, "Then, my precious one, I'll have to talk with the paperboy about putting my paper under the front tire of the car."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Cathy Sanchez, 28, Clydon, Texas Drunk driver had three jell-o shots stuffed in her pockets A Minnesota woman arrested early Saturday for drunk driving had several “alcohol Jello-shots” stuffed in her pockets when searched by police, according to a court filing. Cathy Sanchez, 28, was driving on Highway 10 around 2 AM when a cop spotted her vehicle speeding and swerving across the road. Upon pulling over Sanchez’s Buick LeSabre, a Glyndon Police Department officer detected signs that she was impaired (slurred speech, bloodshot and watery eyes, and an aroma of booze). Pictured above, Sanchez failed a series of sobriety tests and registered a .136 blood alcohol content during a Breathalyzer test. “In a search incident to her arrest,” an investigator noted in a probable cause statement, an officer “located three alcohol Jello-shots in the female’s pockets.” For her part, Sanchez--who initially gave cops a fake name-- told officers that she had previously been busted five times for drunk driving. A subsequent police check revealed three DWI convictions and a concealed weapons conviction. Her license had also been cancelled as “inimical to public safety.” Sanchez was charged in a four-count criminal complaint that includes a pair of felony charges that each carry a maximum of seven years in prison. She is currently locked up in the Clay County jail, where bond was set at $20,000. She's really going to be considered "inimical" now!

>From Ella Let's just walk up the hill to the terminal, rather than wait for the bus," I suggested to my two young sons. Much to their displeasure, we began our walk. After a while, my seven-year-old son asked: "Mom, why do you always make the decisions?" "Because I'm an adult," I said. "When you become an adult, then you'll make the decisions."
