______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Erica Shales, 25, of Des Moines, Iowa Craig Collins, 35, of Nevada, Chanel Clark, 32, of Ames, Iowa Three arrested after striking Boone, IA, police chief with vehicle Three people were arrested Monday, after police said that they struck Boone Police Chief John Wiebold with their vehicle while attempting to flee. Erica Shales, 25, of Des Moines, was identified as the driver and charged with eluding, assault on a peace officer with a deadly weapon, possession of a controlled substance, and driving while suspended. She also had a warrant for her arrest out of Polk County Two passengers, Craig Collins, 35, of Nevada, and Chanel Clark, 32, of Ames, were also arrested. Collins was charged with possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Clark was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. According to the Boone Police Department, officers responded to a report of an assault at the 600 block of Fifth Street around 3 p.m. When officers arrived, they saw a vehicle matching the description of one they were looking for, a silver Dodge Avenger, leaving eastbound from the area. The car traveled to the intersection of Fifth and Story streets where it was stopped because police vehicles were both in front and in back of it, police said. Police said Wiebold got out of his car in an attempt to contact the occupants of the suspect vehicle, at which point Shales accelerated, striking Wiebold before continuing north on Story Street. Wiebold suffered minor injuries and did not require medical treatment. Video shows him getting up and running to his truck. Then the chase was on! According to police, officers then engaged in chase northbound on Story Street and then eastbound on 12th Street at speeds reaching 55 mph, before the car carrying Shales, Collins, and Clark stopped in the 900 block of 12th Street. After stopping, Shales attempted to leave the area on foot but was quickly apprehended, according to police. Chief Wiebold looks like a pro football player. The report does not state who had the most bruises after he tackled Shales. The investigation is continuing. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Barb Re: Pop-Ups Dear Webby, First of all I love your "Humor Letter" and all the advice, pictures, tips, daily history and extra links in it. I need to pick your brain, is there any way to get rid of the pop-ups that pop up on certain websites like newspapers that want you to subscribe to them before you can read their stories or certain sites that want you to subscribe to them. I don't want to subscribe to every "Tom, Dick and Harry" just to read one article that I got to from another website. I know you will know how to handle them. Thanks in advance. Barb Dear Barb For many sites you can use the Google "Poper Blocker" Poper Blocker. It works quite well on the majority of sites, that use hostile pop-ups. However, some sites, like for example National Geogrqaphic, are too sleazy for that, and pop up their ransom demand anyway. You can sometimes get around the ransom demand by turning the Poper Blocker off and using CTRL F4 to close the ransom demand. Sites of large and extremely profitable sites like National Geographic can afford to hire the best programmers to defeat blockers, and newspaper sites quickly copy their tricks. Sometimes all you can do is find an alternate source for what you are looking for, or decide whether what you want to read is worth the demanded ransom. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Lobster Mac and Cheese By attosa [366 Posts, 1,730 Comments] For special occasions, my husband and I like to order lobster mac and cheese. We've recently realized, as good as it is, it's just not worth $20 for a plate! Here's a recipe for lobster mac and cheese for under $3 a serving. Total Time: 1 hour Yield: 6 Ingredients: 16 oz pasta of choice 2 fresh lobster tails 2 Tbsp butter 1 onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 10 black peppercorns 2 cups milk 4 Tbsp butter 4 Tbsp flour 2 cups Gruyere cheese, shredded 3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded 1 cup grated Parmesan 4 Tbsp breadcrumbs Steps: Fill a large pot with salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in the dry pasta and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered until it is firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Reserve 2 cups of the hot pasta water, then drain the pasta in a colander set in the sink. Return the pasta water to the large pot and place the lobster tails in the pot, cut-side up. Return the water to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and steam the lobster just until the meat firms and turns opaque, about 3 minutes. Remove the lobster and allow to cool for a few minutes, then remove the meat and cut into bite sized pieces. Reserve the shells. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes; scrape the onions into a small bowl and set aside. Place the reserved lobster shells, garlic, peppercorns, and milk into the saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat, and cook for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour and stir until the mixture becomes a light golden brown, about 10 minutes. Strain the lobster and milk mixture through a sieve. Gradually whisk the milk into the flour mixture, bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture is thick and smooth, around 10 minutes. Stir the Gruyere and Cheddar cheeses into the thickened milk mixture until melted and smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then stir in the reserved lobster, onions, and pasta. Pour the pasta into a 4 quart casserole and smooth the top. Sprinkle evenly with the breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Bake in the preheated oven until the sauce is bubbly, and the top is golden brown, 8 to 12 minutes. ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ The bank manager was in the final stages of hiring a cashier and was down to two final applicants -- one of which would get the job. The first one interviewed was from a small college in upstate New York. A nice young man, but a bit timid. Then he called for the second man, "Jim Johnson!" Up stepped a burley young man who seemed quite sure of himself. "He looks like he can take care of any situation," thought the manager, and decided, there and then, to hire him. He turned to the first applicant and told him he could go and they would let him know. Turning to Johnson, he said, "Now Jim, I like the way you carry yourself -- that's an important asset for the job as cashier. However, you must be precise. I noticed you did not fill out the place on the application where we asked your formal education." Jim looked a little confused so the manager said, "Where did you get your financial education?" "Oh," replied Jim -- "Yale." "That's very good ... excellent. You're hired!" "Now that you're working for us, what do you prefer to be called?" Jim answered "I don't care... Yim... or Mr. Yonson...." ___________________________________________________

Thanks to Dianne for this story: After watching the movie Cinderella, five-year-old Sarah started using her pinwheel as a magic wand, pretending she was a fairy godmother. "Make three wishes," she told her mother, "and I'll grant them." Her mom first asked for world peace. Sarah swung her wand and proclaimed the request fulfilled. Next, her mother requested for a cure for all ill children. Again, with a sweep of the pinwheel, Sarah obliged. The mother, with a glance down at her rather ample curves, made her third wish, "I wish to have a trim figure again." The miniature fairy godmother started waving her wand madly. Finally, totally exhausted she stopped and sighed: "I'll need more power for this!"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Nancy Guy, 49, Pembroke Pines, Floriduh Florida woman arrested after she duped 85-year-old widower for $300 K, left him bankrupt A 49-year-old woman is accused of defrauding an 85-year-old Pembroke Pines man who was seeking a relationship after the death of his wife, police said. Nancy Guy was arrested Thursday on a first-degree grand theft charge. Woman arrested for trying to run over ex-boyfriend, police say Pembroke Pines police said Guy took more than $300,000 from the man, leaving him bankrupt. According to a Pembroke Pines police report, Guy contacted the man on an online dating website and became involved in a relationship with him. Police said she introduced herself as Anna Miller and told the man, during the course of their relationship, that she needed money to expand her business. Police said Nancy Guy claimed that a flood in her warehouse destroyed $400,000 worth of dresses that she had made and promised to pay him back if he helped her, advancing funds from his credit card to her PayPal account. The alleged scam went on from 2013 until November 2015, when the man told Guy that he didn't have any more money. He turned to his son for help, but his son wasn't buying it and alerted police. Police said Nancy Guy called the man and asked him why he had filed a police report about her. During their conversation, Nancy Guy claimed that her phone was broken and promised to call him when she got a new one, but that was the last he heard from her, according to the report. The man told police that he had his car repossessed and had to file for bankruptcy because of Nancy Guy's scam. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lee Re: Mail attachments won't open Dear Webby, Sometime I try to open a piece of mail.

___________________________________________________ A new priest at his first mass was so nervous he could hardly speak. After mass he asked the Monsignor how he had done. The Monsignor replied, "When I am worried about getting nervous on the pulpit, I put a glass of vodka next to the water glass. If I start to get nervous, I take a sip." So next Sunday he took the Monsignors advice. At the beginning of the sermon, he got nervous and took a drink. He proceeded to talk up a storm. Upon his return to his office after mass, he found the following note on the door: 1. Sip the Vodka, don't gulp. 2. There are 10 Commandments, not 12. 3. There are 12 Disciples, not 10. 4. Jesus was consecrated, not constipated. 5. Jacob wagered his donkey, he did not bet his ass. 6. We do not refer to Jesus Christ as the late J.C. 7. The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are not referred to as Daddy, Junior and the Spook. 8. David slew Goliath, he did not kick the shit out of him. 9. When David was hit by a rock and knocked off his donkey, don't say he was stoned off his ass. 10. We do not refer to the cross as the "Big T" 11. When Jesus broke the bread at the Last Supper he said, "Take this and eat it for it is my body. He did not say "Eat me." 12. The Virgin Mary is not called "Mary with the Cherry." 13. The recommended grace before a meal is not: Rub-A-Dub-Dub thanks for the grub, yeah God. 14. Next Sunday there will be a taffy pulling contest at St. Peter's, not a Peter pulling contest at St. Taffy's.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by David Blackmon, 32, Okaloosa, Floriduh Dopey dealer reports himself He called the police to report that he had been robbed … of his stash of cocaine, according to the Miami Herald. Fort Walton Beach resident David Blackmon called sheriff’s deputies Sunday morning to report the theft of his cocaine stash — about a quarter ounce — and $50 from the center console of his vehicle, in the process actually informing the responding deputy that he was indeed a drug dealer. The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office shared the incident on its Facebook page, no doubt to the amusement of their followers and supporters. Self Described Drug Dealer Calls OCSO to Report Theft of Cocaine A Fort Walton Beach man called the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Sunday morning to report that someone had stolen a baggie of cocaine and cash from his car. 32-year old David Blackmon of 119 Carson Drive, who identified himself as a drug dealer, told the responding deputy that someone entered his car while it was parked at 400 Ed Street and stole $50.00 and about a quarter ounce of cocaine off the center console. The deputy however spotted cocaine still in that spot. He also found a crack pipe on the floorboard by the driver’s door and seat and a crack rock on the center console by the cocaine. The money was not located. Blackmon is charged with possession of cocaine, resisting arrest without violence, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Unfortunately for Blackmon, while he may have been the victim of a theft by another criminal, it was he himself who ended up in cuffs and the back of the deputy’s patrol vehicle, as a search of his own vehicle turned up some remnants of the stolen quarter ounce of cocaine and a crack rock on the center console, as well as a crack pipe on the driver’s side floorboard. According to The Washington Times, Blackmon was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine and resisting arrest without violence. He was released from the Okaloosa County jail on Monday after posting $4,000 bail. There was no word on when he is due back in court to face the felony cocaine possession charge he has been slapped with. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jaye Re: Scanning with computer off Dear Webby, I am wondering if my Computer is off will my Norton still do it's scheduled scan? I also have McAfee scanning my e-mail too. The Crap Cleaner is a neat program. But I am wondering if I am supposed to Analyze first, then Run or does it not make any difference. At one point of the scan it asks me if I really want to delete these files. I was not sure about this but did it anyway and so far does not seem to have hurt anything.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by David Fox, 65, Peterborough, Ontario Driver charged after dramatic video shows vicious attack of 74-year-old cyclist A driver has been charged after a dramatic video showed a 74- year-old cyclist viciously attacked on the side of the road with a club. Peterborough police said that just after 11 a.m. Tuesday, the cyclist was riding in the area of Erskine Ave. when an argument broke out between him and a truck driver. The driver climbed out of his truck and attacked the cyclist with a small club, police said. The video shows the cyclist on the ground with his attacker on top of him, striking him over and over in the head and torso. It shows the attacker stopping when witnesses approached and intervened. A truck sits beside them, with a bicycle crumpled on the street in front of the vehicle. The victim was seen bleeding profusely as he walked away. I'm filming all of this, the woman, who recorded the video, says as the driver gets back up and flicks blood off of his hands. The driver then fled the scene in his truck. Where am I bleeding? the cyclist asks the woman recording. Everywhere, she replys. The woman asked for her name to be withheld when later contacted by Peterborough This Week. The sound of the club hitting him was sickening, the woman told the newspaper. Blood was flying off it. She said she didn't witness what led to the encounter. They were flailing their arms around and the guy walked back to his truck, she said. She grabbed her phone to take a photo of the truck because she thought the cyclist might have been hit. Little did she know what the driver would do next. He became enraged and you could see him snap in the truck, she said. She continued recording and ran towards the men while yelling for the attacker to get off the bloodied man. When the woman and a handful of motorists came to the aid of the cyclist, the driver stopped, put the bloody club in his pocket and wiped blood from his own face. The woman helped the cyclist up from the ground and tried to stop the bleeding until paramedics arrived. I didn't know how bad it was because there was so much blood, she said. It was pouring down his face and he couldn't see out of his eyes. Additional witnesses tried to keep the driver in the area until police arrived but he drove off in his truck. The woman is afraid of what would have happened to the man if no one was around. He attacked a senior man and drove away, she said. Police made an arrest about an hour later. The cyclist was treated and released from Peterborough Regional Hospital. Police said the two men did not know each other. David Fox, 65, has been charged with aggravated assault and assault with a weapon. He was released from custody and scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 24. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Trish Re: Can't use links Dear Webby, I have a yet another (recent since changing to broadband) problem that perhaps you know the remedy for.

One day a farmer's donkey fell into a well. The animal cried pitifully for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided that the donkey was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; so it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the animal. He invited all his neighbors to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well and was astonished; with every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off! Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up! Remember the five simple rules for happiness: Enough of that! The donkey later came back and kicked the last three meals out of the farmer who had tried to bury him. Moral: When you try to cover your ass, it always comes back to get you.

____________________________________________________ Two Jewish men are on a train across Poland, each on his way to meet a prospective bride on the other side of the country. Halfway there, the first turns to the second and says, "Forget about this whole marriage thing. I just don't like the idea." So he gets off at the next stop and makes his way back home. Meanwhile, the second man continues on and is met at the final destination by the mothers of the two prospective brides. When the mothers realize what has happened, they instantly begin to fight over whose daughter should wed this precious man. "He's mine!" cries one. "Not on your life," cries the other, "He will marry my daughter!" After bickering for a while, the man and the two mothers decide to go the local rabbi and ask him to resolve the situation. In the grand tradition of the ancients, the rabbi replies, "Well, there is only one solution to this problem. Cut the boy in half, and you each take half home with you." At this, the first mother looks shocked, while the second mother grins and cries emphatically, "Yah! Cut him in half!!" The rabbi points to the second mother and says, "THAT is the real mother-in-law. Case closed." ___________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jorge Jove, 64, Hialeah, Florida Florida man loses it over AT&T trucks parked in front of house, shoots out their tires, radiator A Hialeah man who is accused of shooting up two AT&T trucks Wednesday that were parked near his home told police that he went "bananas," an arrest report said. Jorge Jove, 64, who is a retired firefighter, was released from jail at 2:25 a.m. Thursday after posting a $30,000 bond. According to Hialeah police Sgt. Carl Zogby, AT&T trucks were hanging lines on utility poles on a residential street in the 600 block of Southeast Fifth Place when Jove got upset and told the workers to move away from his home. An arrest report states that Jove was angry because he feared that the trucks would damage the pavers on his driveway, even though the trucks were parked in front of the driveway, not on it. Zogby said the workers told Jove that they would move as soon as possible, but needed to finish their work first and that they were parked on a public street. Authorities said Jove came out of his home about an hour after exchanging words with the workers and started shooting at the trucks with a Ruger .357 revolver. According to the arrest report, the shooting happened after the workers had already moved their trucks easterly on Fifth Place while running a cable service above ground. Cellphone video taken from one of the workers shows a man, believed to be Jove, shooting out the tires of the trucks. "He flattened their tires. He shot into the bodies of the trucks. He shot out one of the radiators of the truck," Zogby said. "He seemed to be a quiet man, and something made him snap today." A Hialeah police sergeant who responded to the scene said he witnessed Jove firing a shot at one of the workers who was elevated while working on a cable inside a bucket truck. Police said Jove missed and the worker was not injured. Authorities said Jove caused more than $1,000 in damage to the trucks. One truck had the passenger-side front and rear tires shot out. The other truck had bullet holes in all of its tires and a bullet hole in its radiator, the report said. "We're grateful nobody was hurt, and we're working with law enforcement in their investigation," an AT&T spokeswoman said in an email to Local 10 News. Authorities said police ordered Jove to drop his gun as they arrived, and Jove was taken into custody. Detectives said Jove told them that he "went bananas" and wanted to stop the workers from leaving before police arrived. Police said Jove denied shooting in the direction of the worker who was in the bucket truck or pointing his gun at any of the workers. Jove was arrested on two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and two counts of felony vandalism. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Daniel Re: censored by ATT.NET Dear Webby, your email site is not going to my email.it ends up on the icon screen.

____________________________________________________ After living in the remote wilderness of Kentucky all his life, an old hillbilly decided it was time to visit the big city. In one of the stores he picked up a mirror and looked in it. Not ever having seen one before, he remarked at the image staring back at him, "How about that! Here's a picture of my daddy." He bought the 'picture', but on the way home he remembered his wife, Lizzy, didn't like his father. So he hung it in the barn, and every morning before leaving for the fields, he would go there and look at it. Lizzy began to get suspicious of these many trips to the barn.

A surveillance photo captured her cooking food naked inside the home, police said. She also allegedly took a shower before the homeowner returned. Surveillance video showed her running from the house with the homeowner’s belongings, which she dropped outside, police said. Horton-Garcia was later arrested. Police said she told them she was going to her boyfriend’s house and accidentally went to the wrong home. Horton- Garcia said her boyfriend’s name was Mike but she didn’t know his last name. She said she only met him a few days prior at a Circle K in the area. Horton-Garcia was booked on suspicion of second-degree burglary and first-degree criminal trespassing. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: RJR Re: eml Dear Webby, When I try to open certain emails that have the extension .eml I am getting the error box that says "this file does not have a program associated with it...etc." and to create one under settings, folder options.

The year is 2025 and the United States of America has recently elected the first woman as well as an openly Jewish President, a Susan Vineberg. So the President elect calls up her mother a few weeks after election day and says, "So ma, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?" "I don't think so. It's a ten hour drive, and your father isn't as young as he used to be, and my gout is acting up again." "Don't worry about it Mom, I'll send Air Force One to pick you up and take you home. And a limousine will pick you up at your door." "I don't know. Everybody will be so fancy, I don't know what on Earth I would wear." "Oh mom," replies Susan, "don't worry about it. I'll make sure you have a wonderful gown by Christian Day." "Honey," Mom complains, "you know I can't eat those rich foods you and your friends like to eat." The President-to-be responds, "Don't worry Mom. The entire affair is going to be handled by the best caterer in New York, kosher all the way. Mom, I want you to come." So Mom agrees and on January 21, 2025, Susan Vineberg is being sworn in as President of the United States of America. In the front row sits the new President's mother, who leans over to a Senator sitting next to her and says, "You see that woman over there with her hand on the Bible, becoming President of the United States?" The Senator whispers back, "Yes I do." "Her brother's a doctor."

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Cookie for this report: DUBLIN, Ireland - A nursing home in Ireland has hit on a cheering way to keep up the spirits of its elderly patients -- by providing its own pub. St Mary’s Hospital in County Monaghan, near the Irish border with Northern Ireland, believes ready access to a good pint may help its patients -- average age 85 -- actually live longer. “We would say the whole social aspect of life does extend the years -- it means the patients aren’t bored to death,” Rose Mooney, assistant director of nursing told Reuters. The pub, which opens at 11 a.m. and closes at 9 p.m. and charges normal bar prices, had also led to an increase in the number of visitors, she said. Having its own bar made the hospital, which has around 140 patients, unique in Ireland, she added. ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: "Free to good home. You want it, you take it". For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal. It looked to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read: "Fridge for sale $75". The next day someone stole it.

Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, July 20

Saw the thinnest and reddest moon crescent in the smoke
tonight. It still smells like camp fire smoke from the
fires in BC, on the other side of the Rockies. I think BC
is waiting for a good rain.


The farmers of course love it.

She was most pleased at receiving the gift from her home folks, but as she read the letter her attention was distracted by the actions of a shabbily dressed stranger who was leaning against a lamp post in front of the convent. She couldn't get him off her mind and thinking that he might be in financial difficulties. She took the $50 bill and wrapped it in a piece of paper, on which she had written, "Don't despair, Sister Eulalia." She threw it out of the window to him. He picked it up, read it, looked at her with a puzzled expression, tipped his hat and went off down the street. The next day she was in her room saying her prayers when she was told that a man was at her door who insisted on seeing her. She went down and found the shabbily dressed stranger waiting for her. Without saying a word he handed her a roll of bills. When she asked what the bills were for he replied, "That's the four-hundred bucks you have coming.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Emily-Jo Banks, 23, Kent, England Twisted woman, who sent abusive texts to HERSELF saying she was being harassed by an innocent man is jailed 18 months for wasting police time A woman who sent abusive texts to herself and claimed she was being persistently harassed by a man has been jailed for wasting police time. Emily-Jo Banks, 23, told police that a man was targeting her throughout August and September in 2015. She claimed the man, aged in his 20s, followed her home, spied on her while she was in her back garden, sent threatening texts, attacked her and climbed onto her garage. Officers visited her home in Folkestone, Kent, and acted on her concerns, but she was caught out after a number of suspicious incidents. Police attended the man's address in Dover and found the man had not sent any messages at the times Banks claimed she had received them. They also found the messages stopped while officers were inside her home. In one incident, Banks, who at the time was doing work in the back garden, claimed to have received two texts in quick succession concerning dogs outside the front of her home. Officers questioned how one person could view the front and rear of the property at the same time. They examined Banks' phone and found she was logged into the man's social media profiles and was sending herself threatening messages. Her phone was also linked to an email address she claimed the man had used to send information about herself to the social services and media organisations. She was arrested and subsequently appeared at Canterbury Crown Court on July 7 where she was sentenced to 18 months in prison. Investigating officer Detective Constable Natasha Russell said: 'Banks intentionally perverted the course of justice by lying to the police. 'Not only has she caused significant distress to the victim but she has also wasted the time of hardworking officers. 'The fact that she has received a prison sentence shows the seriousness of this offence. We do not take this issue lightly and anyone caught will be dealt with appropriately.' _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Shirley Re: Camera for kids Dear Webby, My grandkids, 6 and 7 years old will be visiting me for a couple or three weeks while my daughter has to go for an operation. I want to buy them digital cameras and teach them the basics of my hobby. What kind of camera would you suggest for complete novices of that age? Not too expensive, preferably. Thanks Shirley Dear Shirley Check Amazon for a Vivitar VXX14, for around $30. It is very small and lightweight and quite suitable for kids. The performance figures, though, will knock your socks off. 20 megapixels, 5200 x 3900 pictures, swivel monitor like a $500 Canon IS camera for shooting around corners, above the head, close to ground without lying down, or for taking selfies, which the kids really love doing. Controls are at an absolute minimum. The small lens makes it a real point and shoot camera. Don't worry about distance, focus, time or anything. Just point and shoot. It also takes movies. It comes with a standard tripod mounting socket, wrist strap, flash, USB cable and CD for handling the pictures on a computer. However, if you have any graphics program and a chip reader, you can transfer the pictures the same as with any camera. A very few years ago all that would have made professional photographers drool and kill for. It does not compare well with a $1500 2017 model SLR, though. The small point and shoot lens is great for daytime, but does not reach as far into the darkness as a camera with a large 2 pound lens. There is no optical zoom. The same as with any camera, the digital zoom is best ignored. You can do that much better once the picture is on the computer. For a kids camera or for a cheap camera in the car, or as a gift for a beginner, you can't really beat that Vivitar VXX14. You will have to get 3 AAA batteries and a camera memory chip separately. Have FUN! DearWebby
Thanks to Dianne for this: Pipe Specifications of the Government 1. All pipe is to be made of a long hole, surrounded by metal or plastic centered around the hole. 2. All pipe is to be hollow throughout the entire length - do not use holes of different length than the pipe. 3. The I.D. (inside diameter) of all pipe must not exceed the O.D. (outside diameter) - otherwise the hole will be on the outside. 4. All pipe is to be supplied with nothing in the hole so that water, steam or other stuff can be put inside at a later date. 5. All pipe should be supplied without rust - this can be more readily applied at the job site. N.B. Some Vendors are now able to supply pre-rusted pipe. If available in your area, this product is recommended as it will save a lot of time on the job site. 6. All pipe over 500ft (153m) in length should have the words "long pipe" clearly painted on each end, so the Contractor will know it is a long pipe. 7. Pipe over 2 miles (3.2km) in length must have the words "long pipe" painted in the middle, so the Contractor will not have to walk the entire length of the pipe to determine whether or not it is a long pipe. 8. All pipe over 6" (152mm) in diameter must have the words "large pipe" painted on it, so the Contractor will not mistake it for small pipe. 9. Flanges must be used on all pipe. Flanges must have holes for bolts quite separate from the big hole in the middle. 10. When ordering 90 degrees, 45 degrees or 30 degrees elbows, be sure to specify right hand or left hand; otherwise you will end up going the wrong way. 11. Be sure to specify to your vendor whether you want level, uphill or downhill pipe. If you use downhill pipe for going uphill, the water will flow the wrong way. 12. All couplings should have either right hand or left hand thread, but do not mix the threads - otherwise, as the coupling is being screwed on one pipe, it is unscrewed from the other.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use for an Old Golf Bag Use an old golf bag as a tote to help lug your garden tools out to your garden. Tip provided by http://www.ThriftyFun.com Ask around your neighborhood for a "Little red wagon". Lots of people still have one lurking in the garage or behind the house from when their kids used one. Even if it is dented up and the wheels wobble, it will still be fine for hauling garden tools to the garden and produce from it to the house. If it is too ratty looking, somebody is bound to offer you their li'l red wagon. You can even make some hoops with 1/2" black plastic pipe or willow shoots and cover them with tarp to make a covered wagon to keep your tools dry and your ice tea out of the sun. Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ Reported by Linda An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Heather Query, 21, Indianapolis, Indiana Mother arrested after leaving children in hot car and assaulting rescuer A mother remains in jail after police say she knowingly endangered her two little boys by leaving them alone in a car with temperatures approaching 100 degrees. A total stranger found them in a parking lot outside a Kroger store on Southport Road. "They were screaming and crying. The oldest one was just pushing against the windows, just screaming, screaming, screaming. Face just blood red, tears coming down his face," says Heather Elliott, who found the boys, ages four and one, in that car. Elliot says her motherly instinct went into overdrive. "You just do what you have to do," she says. And what she says she was about to do was try and get into the car and get those boys out. "They looked like they had been there for a long time," Elliott adds. But before she could do that, Elliott says 21-year-old Heather Query, the boys' mom, came out of the south side Kroger. "I said, 'How long were you in there?' and she said, 'Excuse me?' I said, 'How long were you in that store?' I said 'It's 100 degrees outside," recounts Elliott. "She said, 'What do you care? Mind your own business' and she started cussing and came around the car and told me to mind my own business and then I said, 'I'm just concerned about your kids. I'm just thinking about the safety of your kids'." And then came something Elliott says she never expected. "She punched me and just kept coming and going so I just kept pushing back," Elliott explains. Someone called police. "I think it was 97 degrees heat index outside at that time," says IMPD Officer Anthony Schneider. "It's never suggested to leave your children in the car unattended first of all, let alone unattended when the heat index is a high as it was yesterday." Despite her bruised jaw, Elliott says she'd do the same thing again. "An adult, an animal, a child. I'd do it again. You don't think about it. You just do it. It's something that has to be done," Elliott adds. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lynn Re: MSIE Link Dear Webby, How can I put a link to a website that I use a *lot* in the Int.

The two men stood on the lonely lighthouse. Through the fog they could see a small boat making its way toward them, with a lonely occupant. Suddenly a squall lifted the craft and tossed the man into the water. The two men on shore sprang into action. Hurriedly they launched their own craft and fought their way through perilous and treacherous waters to reach the man. At last they got him aboard their boat. "It's a good thing you rescued me," the dripping man said gratefully. "I was coming out to see you about your income tax......" "OOOPS! He fell overboard!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Making a Borax and Honey Ant Trap By Robyn [548 Posts, 936 Comments] Sugar ants come around the kitchen and other places looking for sweet stuff to eat. Other kinds of ants follow too but I generally call them sugar ants. Here is how to make a trap to put on the counter. Supplies: 1 tsp 20 Mule Team borax* 2 cups hot water 5 Tbsp honey folded paper towel empty plastic container *Borax is an natural laundry boosting powder available in the laundry section of the store, normally on the top shelf. Steps: Dissolve the borax in hot water. Stir in the honey. Dip the folded paper towel in the solution until it is soaked completely. Press the wet paper towel in the empty plastic applesauce container. Place in a location where you have seen the ants. This bait will be eaten by the ants and taken back to the nest and will then kill the entire nest. Keep away from children by placing on a countertop where they can't reach it. ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ A man goes into a pet shop and tells the owner that he wants to buy a pet that can do everything. The shop owner suggests a faithful dog. The man replies, "Come on, a dog?" The owner says, "How about a cat?" The man replies, "No way! A cat certainly can't do everything. I want a pet that can do everything!" The shop owner thinks for a minute, then says, "I've got it! A centipede!" The man says, "A centipede? I can't imagine a centipede doing everything, but okay... I'll try a centipede." He gets the centipede home and says to the centipede, "Clean the kitchen." Thirty minutes later, he walks into the kitchen and... it's immaculate! All the dishes and silverware have been washed, dried, and put away; the counter-tops cleaned; the appliances sparkling; the floor waxed. He's absolutely amazed. He says to the centipede, "Go clean the living room." Twenty minutes later, he walks into the living room. The carpet has been vacuumed; the furniture cleaned and dusted; the pillows on the sofa plumped; plants watered. The man thinks to himself, "This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. This really is a pet that can do everything!" Next he says to the centipede, "Run down to the corner and get me a newspaper." The centipede walks out the door. 10 minutes later...no centipede. 20 minutes later... no centipede. 30 minutes later...no centipede. By this point the man is wondering what's going on. So he goes to the front door, opens it... and there's the centipede sitting right outside. The man says, "Hey!! I sent you down to the corner store 45 minutes ago to get me a newspaper. What's the matter?!" The centipede says, "I'm goin'! I'm goin'! I'm just putting on my shoes and my skates!" ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ It was the day of the big sale. Rumors of the sale and an advertisement on the net were the main reasons for the long line that formed in front of the store long before 8:30, the store's opening time. A small man pushed his way to the front of the line, only to be pushed back amid loud and colorful curses. On the man's second attempt, he was punched square in the jaw by an irate grandmother and knocked around a bit, then thrown to the end of the line again. As he got up the second time, he said to the person at the end of the line: "That does it! If they hit me one more time, I won't open the store!"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Praju Prasad, 24, North Shields, England Pervert begs paedophile hunters to let him go after he was caught trying to meet girl, 12 A man fell to his knees and begged paedophile hunters to let him go after he was snared attempting to meet up with what he thought was a 12-year-old girl. Praju Prasad, 24, had been talking to who he thought was a youngster on social media and arranged to meet her at a train station this week. But he was instead met by members of Guardians of the North, an undercover organisation who catch men who are trying to meet children for sex. The police were called and Prasad was arrested and charged with attempting to meet a girl under the age of 16 after grooming. Before the officers arrived, he got down on his knees and repeatedly begged the group to leave him alone. At Newcastle Crown Court this week Prasad, of Bell Street, North Shields, was handed nine month prison sentence suspended for 18 months and a £140 fine after previously pleading guilty. He was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register for five years. Man chases scooter gang with hammer after they 'try to steal his motorbike' Prasad had originally attempted to book a hotel for himself and the ‘girl’. But when he was told none of them would accommodate a man and a child he instead arranged a meeting at North Shields Metro Station. There he was met by members of the group who filmed themselves confronting him with the words: ‘You are here to meet a 12-year-old girl for sex.’ Prasad then repeatedly begs for mercy as he kneels on the floor and grabs the legs of a group member. He says: ‘Please, leave me alone. Please, I beg you. Please, I beg you.’ Speaking after the case a member of Guardians of the North said: ‘This highlights the important work that we do. ‘If this man hadn’t been caught by us then he could well have gone on to abuse an actual child. ‘We are not happy with the sentence. We believe that judges need to be tougher as this kind of offending needs to be stamped out before more serious crimes are committed.’ Guardians of the North, set up just over a year ago, pose as teen girls and boys online to snare men looking to meet youngsters for sex. They have so far apprehended 117 potential paedophiles and seen around 30 convicted. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Tom Re: Moisture migration Dear Webby, You have been such a help with computer questions, and seem to have a great deal of knowledge on everyday items also. I would appreciate it if you could find an answer for this question. I take my lunch to work in a plastic cooler about 12 X 16 inches and 18 deep. I put a few cans of soda in the bottom, cover them with ice and then put my sandwich in on top. Some time the sandwich is wrapped in Saran Wrap and sometimes in wax paper and then put in a plastic sealable sandwich bag. By lunch time sometimes, and only sometimes, the bread on one side of the sandwich is soggy and the other slice is hard, dried out. I leave my cooler in the car and this seems to happen all year round. (Chicago area) Why does this happen and how do I stop it? Tom Dear Tom Moisture in the sandwich will condense in the cold side, which will reduce the humidity in the sandwich bag, causing more liquid to evaporate on the warm side, and condense on the cold side. The remedy is using a square Tupperware style sandwich container and putting a square or two of bubble-wrap below the sandwich. That bubble-wrap prevents direct conduction of heat from the sandwich to the ice below, and the whole sandwich will have closer to the same temperature, and very little moisture migration. In a pinch, a bubble-wrap padded envelope will work nearly as well. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Storing Ice Cream Don't let ice cream soften and then refreeze. The ideal temperature to store ice cream is between -5 and 0 Fahrenheit. Store ice cream inside of your freezer rather than on the door where the temperature is more likely to fluctuate. Make sure the lid on your ice cream container is closed tightly. Some containers are tough to keep closed once they have been opened, store those inside of a plastic bag or wrap them with tin foil.

____________________________________________________ I was peacefully working away when the phone disturbed me. "Hello?" I said. A girl's voice came over the line. "Can I speak to Ben, please?" I live by myself, and my name definitely is not Ben. It was probably a wrong number and I don't like people who call wrong numbers. I replied, "I'm sorry, he's not in right now. Can I take a message?" "Do you know what time he'll be back?" she responded. "I think he said he'd be home around 10:00." Silence on the other end... a confused silence. "Is this Steve?" My name isn't Steve, either. This was definitely a wrong number. So I replied, "Yes, it is. Do you want to leave a message for Ben?" "Well... he said he would be home tonight and asked me to call him," she said in a slightly irritated voice. I replied, "Well, he went out with Karen about an hour ago, and said that he would be back at 10:00." A shocked voice now: "Who's Karen?!" "The girl he went out with." "I know that! I mean... who is she?" "I don't know her last name. Look, do you want me to leave a message for Ben?" "Yes... please do. Tell him to call me when he gets home." She was sounding pretty irate at this point, and I could hear her temper flaring. "I sure will. Is this Jennifer?" She exploded, "Who's Jennifer?" Apparently she wasn't Jennifer. Good guess though. "Well... he's going out with Jennifer at 10:00. I thought you were her. Sorry... it was an honest mistake." "Ben's the one that's made the mistake! Tell him that Alice called him and the she's very upset and that I would like him to call me as soon as he gets home." I smiled and said, "Okay, I will... but Becky isn't going to like this..." *Click* ___________________________________________________

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Deodorizing a Cooler or Ice Chest By Doris [2 Posts, 72 Comments] To clean a cooler, inside and out, cascade, or any automatic dishwashing powder, works really well, and sanitizes while cleaning. It gets the dirt out of the grooves on the outside, too. I don't know why it works better than a cleanser, but it does. It's also food safe, since it is for dishwashing, right? For storage of a cooler with a plug, leaving the plug open is all you need; keeping in mind closing it when you use it! If there isn't a plug, I use a paper towel, folded a few times, to wedge the lid open, placing it near a hinge. If the cooler is musty smelling from storage areas, a quick swipe with some vinegar and baking soda will do the trick. ____________________________________________________

Have I not scrimped and save so I could tithe to the Temple and contribute to B'nai Brith? Have I not always put others before myself? Have I not always turned my other cheek and loved my neighbors, have I not ...?" A deep loud voice from the sky interrupts, "Enough already, give me a break!'"

"Don't you have at least one other golf ball?" he asked. The other guy replied that he only needed one. "Are you sure?" the friend persisted. "What happens if you lose that ball?" The other guy replied, "This is a very special golf ball. I won't lose it, so I don't need another one." "Well," the friend asked, "what happens if you miss your shot and the ball goes in the lake?" "That's OK," he replied, "this special golf ball floats. I'll be able to retrieve it." "Well what happens if you hit it into the trees and it gets lost among the bushes and shrubs? "The other guy replied, "That's OK, too. You see, this special golf ball has a homing beacon. I'll be able to get it back -- no problem." Exasperated, the friend asks, "OK. Let's say our game goes late, the sun goes down, and you hit your ball into a sand trap. What are you going to do then?" "No problem," says the other guy, "You see, this ball is fluorescent. I'll be able to see it in the dark." Finally satisfied that he needs only the one golf ball, the friend asks, "Hey, where did you get a golf ball like that, anyway?" The other guy replies, "I found it." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A young ensign had nearly completed his first overseas tour of sea duty when he was given an opportunity to display his ability at getting the ship under way. With a stream of crisp commands, he had the decks buzzing with men and soon, the ship had left port and was steaming out of the channel. The ensign's efficiency has been remarkable. In fact, the deck was abuzz with talk that he had set a new record for getting a destroyer under way. The ensign glowed at his accomplishment and was not all surprised when another seaman approached him with a message from the captain. He was, however, a bit surprised to find that it was a radio message, and he was even more surprised when he read: "My personal congratulations upon completing your underway preparation exercise according to the book and with amazing speed. In your haste, however, you have overlooked one of the unwritten rules -- To avoid being courtmarshalled and hanged for stealing a capital ship, make sure the captain is aboard before getting under way." ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Leigh Ann Sepelyak, 38, Penn Hills, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania woman set boyfriend on fire then put out flames with urine Leigh Ann Sepelyak, 38, reportedly got into an argument with her boyfriend Grady Spencer III on Saturday evening. Police officers in Penn Hills, Pennsylvania, say that when Spencer fell asleep, Sepelyak doused him with petrol and ignited the fire with a lit cigarette. She then allegedly used a bucket of urine – which they had been using as a toilet – to put the fire out, Fox8 reports. Spencer was rushed to hospital for treatment after Sepelyak’s parents, who live in the same house, heard his screaming. The parents, when they heard screaming and smelled the smoke, helped put him out – I think with the same urine – and went to the hospital, Penn Hills Police Chief Howard Burton said. They never called the police, the hospital called [us]. Spencer suffered burns on 25% to 35% of his lower body. Sepelyak has now been charged with attempted homicide and arson charges. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Annoying Pop-ups Dear Webby, Dear Webby, Again, an annoying, but not serious problem. When I open a subscribed e-mail from "Gopher Central.com", two pop-ups from "Pulse TV" appear in Firefox. When I contacted their support, they blamed Firefox and suggested that I try Google, Internet explorer, Yahoo or Bing. I like Firefox and don't want to switch. I downloaded two add-ons for Firefox, as suggested on internet searches. Nothing has helped. Also, when I click on a link in "The Straight Dope", Internet Explorer, that I never use, pops-up. I am sure that you will have a solution to these problems. When all else fails, I go to you. Thanks. Bill Dear Bill I UNinstalled Internet Exploder. That helped tremendously. Even Microsoft gave up on it. When a link tries to force Internet Explorer, then you know some hacker is trying to do something sleazy. Honest links don't do that! GopherCentral feeds your address to stuff, that you did not subscribe to, like their video editions and Pulse TV and whatever. I can't recommend them. Since your PopUp problem happens only when you open mail from Gopher Central, the problem is their crap, not your browser's. They are just lying to you and treating you like a gullible idjit. Dump them. I tried them once, many years ago. Luckily I use MailWasher. That sends their stuff to hell without even downloading it or showing it in the list. I really don't give a hoot about whether their stupid PopUps open in hell or not. Not my problem. Whenever I get stuff, that triggers PopUps or anything I did not ask for, I spend 10 15 seconds to make a filter in MailWasher. I never see it again. If you DO want the silly newsletter, that has the PopUps as sleazy payload, try changing your subscription to text instead of HTML. With some newsletters you can do that. I used to have that option, but since I don't use PopUps or any payload, not enough people used that version, so I dumped it. Now you just have Regular Font and Large Font. Have FUN! DearWebby

the episode that made us all cry - Goodbye
____________________________________________________ Thanks to Sandie for this one: You Don't have To Own A Cat To Appreciate This One A couple was dressed and ready to go out for the evening. They turned, on a night light, turned the answering machine on the phone line, covered their pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. They phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and the couple opened the front door to leave their house. The cat they had put out into the yard scooted back into the house. They didn't want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird. The wife goes out to the taxi while the husband goes inside to get the cat. The cat runs upstairs, the man in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, the wife doesn't want the driver to know the house will be empty for the night. She explains to the taxi driver that her husband will be out soon "He's just going upstairs to say good-bye to my mother." A few minutes later, the husband gets into the cab. "Sorry I took so long," he says, as they drive away. "Stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. Had to poke her with a wet mop to get her to come out! She tried to take off so I grabbed her by the neck. Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked. I managed to haul the fat ninny downstairs and throw her out into the back yard!" The cab driver hit a parked car. ___________________________________________________
Stolen Beauty of the Chin Girls
___________________________________________________ Arnold and his wife were cleaning out the attic one day when he came across a ticket from the local shoe repair shop. The date stamped on the ticket showed that it was over eleven years old. They both laughed and tried to remember which of them might have forgotten to pick up a pair of shoes over a decade ago. "Do you think the shoes will still be in the shop?" Arnold asked. "Not very likely," his wife said. "It's worth a try," Arnold said, pocketing the ticket. He went downstairs, hopped into the car, and drove to the store. With a straight face, he handed the ticket to the man behind the counter. With a face just as straight, the man said, "Just a minute. I'll have to look for these." He disappeared into a dark corner at the back of the shop. Two minutes later, the man called out, "Here they are!" "No kidding?" Arnold called back. "That's terrific! Who would have thought they'd still be here after all this time." The man came back to the counter, empty-handed. "They'll be ready Thursday," he said calmly.

____________________________________________________ Little Johnny drew a fly on the class grade book. It looked so realistic, that when Miss Baker saw the fly sitting on the notebook, she slammed it with a ruler. The fly didn't fly away. So she slammed the book once again, again the fly didn't fly away. This drove Miss Baker really mad, so she started to pound the book with the ruler and, as a result, the grade book became a bunch of torn sheets of paper. With the class laughing, she realized what had happened. Then Miss Baker called Little Johnny's father to school. "You see what your son did to our class grade book?" she said. "That's nothing." replied the father. "Last month, he drew a naked woman on the neighbor's fence and they had to pull splinters out of him for six hours straight, down at the hospital."

______________________________________________________ Reported by Moe An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Emily Morin, 26, Concord, New Hampshire Concord, NH Woman arrested twice in five hours after she demanded drugs back and wanted to drive Emily Morin, 26, of Concord faces several charges after she was arrested twice on Tuesday, police said. Morin was charged with willful concealment and possession of Suboxone about 11 a.m., after being charged earlier with shoplifting from the Macy's Department Store at the Mall at Rockingham Park, police said. Police said they subsequently learned that her driver's license and registration were suspended. Morin was released on $2,500 bail. Her bail conditions included that she commit no crimes while free on bail and that she not drive until her license was reinstated by the state Department of Motor Vehicles, police said. About five hours later, at 3:30 p.m., police said that Morin showed up at the Salem Police Station demanding that the arresting officer return her Suboxone, which had been seized as evidence. Officer Andrew Feole said he explained to her that he "would not be handing her the drugs." Feole said Morin proceeded to get into the driver's seat of a Volvo in the police station parking lot and back out. She refused to get out of the car at Feole's request, police said. Morin was placed under arrest, but continued to sit in the car, police said. Feole said he was forced to open the car door and remove Morin from the vehicle before holding her against the car to handcuff her. In addition to the shoplifting, Morin faces charges of willful concealment, possession of a controlled drug, suspension of vehicle registration, driving after revocation/suspension, resisting arrest and breach of bail. She was arraigned in Salem District Court on Wednesday morning. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Denise Re: Drop-Box to stick Dear Webby, Dear Webby, Can you explain how I can transfer pictures from Dropbox to a stick?

A major research institution has announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet know to science - "governmentium." It has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons and 111 assistant deputy neutrons for an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons that are further surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like sub particles called peons. Governmentium has no electrons and is therefore inert. It can be detected however since it impedes every reaction it comes into contact with. A tiny amount of governmentium can take a reaction that normally occurs in seconds and slow it to the point where it takes many months. Governmentium has a normal half-life of four years. It doesn't decay but "re-organizes", a process where assistant deputy neutrons and deputy neutrons change places. This process actually causes it to grow as in the confusion some morons become neutrons, thereby forming isodopes. This phenomenon of "moron promotion" has led to some speculation that governmentium forms whenever sufficient morons meet in concentration, forming critical morass. Researches believe that in Governmentium, the more you reorganize, the morass you cover.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Rags Instead of Paper Towels Tired of spending money on paper towels? Sending them to a landfill is not good for the environment. Instead, use rags: Worn out towels, old fabric etc. When these rags might have seen their last scrub, their useful life is not over. Layer 2 or 3 rags and sew them together, each about 12 inches square. Then place your old soap ends and maybe some stinky soap you won't bathe with in the center. Tie the layers together (with your favorite rag on the outside) with a strong string or cord and make a pouch. You can tie this soapy wonder in an outdoor wash area or from the faucet in the bathroom. No fuss or muss, and no icky slime on the sink. When it wears out, compost it and make another.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jahir Hussain, 37, Poplar, England. Rapist Uber driver who preyed on drunk women jailed for 12 years An Uber driver who waited outside popular east London bars looking for drunk women to rape has been jailed for 12 years. Jahir Hussain sexually assaulted one woman last October and two on the same night in December when they passed out in his back seat after he picked them up in Shoreditch. Snaresbrook Crown Court heard that the 37-year-old’s first victim, who woke to find the father-of-four fondling her breasts and undoing his belt, was frozen in fear as he raped her. His next two attacks came in quick succession in the early hours of December 2. Hussain took advantage of Uber’s system to intercept one woman, telling her that he was the driver ordered to collect her. After she left her work’s Christmas Party, Hussain drover her to a parking bay. He cut her clothing with scissors as she slept – but she woke to find him kissing her, and tried to fight him off. The woman managed to get out of the car and Hussain sped off when she told him she would call the police. Hours later he touched his third victim’s legs and lifted up her dress as she slept, and she later found her tights and knickers had been partly cut off her body. Judge Nicholas Huskinson told Hussain he seriously considered a life sentence and told him: ‘You possess a high risk of harm to adult women, particularly those who are intoxicated. ‘You, Mr Hussain, appear to target them while they are alone and vulnerable. ‘And you used some sort of bladed instrument to cut their clothing when they were asleep. ‘On 2 December you committed two crimes hours apart despite the first victim telling you they would call the police. That did not deter you. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Fran Re: Dead mice Dear Webby, Dear Webby, my problem is mice. Not one mouse. MICE.

Thanks, Fran Dear Fran Tell them they need wireless Microsoft or Logitech laser mice. Those have no balls, just a laser at the bottom. They have small teflon glider pads for feet. When they get gunked up with ketchup and hamburger drippings and dirt and stuff, just run the mouse hard on some brown packing paper. That will clean them off in seconds.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning Lime Deposits Off a Toilet I tried everything, as we were selling our house, including emptying the bowl and adding vinegar. I decided that I'd try the pumice stone as a last resort, only I wished I had tried it first. It can even be used wet so you don't have to empty the bowl first. I bought it at the Dollar store, put on some gloves and got the bowl clean in no time. It won't harm the bowl as it's fine, not rough. Whatever you try, good luck. (07/15/2007) By Mikki I have tried using pumice stones and it worked although it was a lot of work. At Home Depot they sell a product called Zep, and it's just a acidic cleaner that you squirt on. When I used it I was shocked and amazed and will never use anything else, by far the best product out there. (07/15/2007) By pomsarelv Hydrochloric acid works fast and very well if you have to clean a bunch of toilets. For best results, get rid of the water and let it dry, so that you don`t dilute the hydrochloric acid. Make sure you have good ventilation because it `smokes` when it eats the deposits. Have FUN!

At this point, the Officer at Headquarters grabbed his microphone and let loose a blistering tirade at the operators for fooling around on an radio link. When he had finished, there was silence for about ten seconds. Then a small voice said, "He's not a friendly bear, let's go to our secret channel." They all muted their mikes and went to sleep, while the officer went nuts trying to find what secret channel they were using. ___________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ Wanda's dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman, "I'll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I'll mail you a check." "Oh, by the way don't worry about my bulldog. He won't bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot!" "I REPEAT, DO NOT TALK TO MY PARROT!" When the repairman arrived at Wanda's apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest looking bulldog he has ever seen. But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the repairman go about his work. The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing and name calling. Finally the repairman couldn't contain himself any longer and yelled, "Shut up, you stupid, ugly bird!" To which the parrot replied, "Get him, Spike"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Zohair Tomari, 20, in jail in England Syrian migrant trafficked girls while on bail after raping another teenager Zohair Tomari, 20, who is believed to be from Syria, invited his 17-year-old victim and her 15-year-old friend to his flat in August 2014 after befriending them. Once there, he gave her alcohol, before slapping and punching both and pulling out a knife. Tomari, of Longford, Coventry, demanded that the terrified teen open her legs and, as he undid his belt, told her that the more she cried, the more he would hit her, before proceeding to rape her. Police arrived at the scene after the youngest girl was reported missing, at which point the other informed them of the incident in private. But he was granted bail and went on to traffic two younger girls, aged 13 and 14, as they walked to a friend’s home in the early hours of the morning in August last year. The pair were enticed into the car – in which Tomari was a passenger – and given drink and cigarettes before being led to a flat in Foleshill, Coventry, where he sexually assaulted them. Tomari was found guilty of rape, in relation to the incident involving the 17-year-old girl, at Warwick Crown Court, and jailed for a total of 12 years and nine months for both incidents. The court heard how Tomari had been jailed at Coventry Crown Court in January this year after being convicted of trafficking for child sexual exploitation and sexual assaults in relation to the other incident. He will also have to serve an additional seven years on licence, and has been ordered to register as a sex offender for life. In relation to the first attack, Judge Andrew Lockhart QC, sentencing, told Tomari: ‘Behaviour of this nature is abhorred in virtually every civilised country on this earth. ‘Sadly, then you were granted bail, and you committed other offences for which you are now in prison. I am driven to conclude you are dangerous. I can see no end to the danger you pose.’ Jeremy Janes, prosecuting, claimed that Tomari had befriended the 17-year-old victim and her 15-year-old friend, and invited them to his flat. The older girl said that both she and the youngster were punched and slapped by Tomari, and she was threatened with a knife and told she ‘better be careful’ or she would be going to Hillfields, Coventry, to ‘open your legs for anyone.’ During the night, two calls were made to police, one just before 10pm and one just before 3am, but neither was completed. Tomari, who claimed to be from Morocco in his pre-sentence report but now claims to be from Syria, then went on to traffic the two young girls in August last year. The pair went to the police about the horror incident after being driven back to the city centre by the sex offender. Tomari was handed a nine-and-a-half year sentence for child sexual exploitation and sexual assaults in relation to the that incident and, once half that sentence has been served, an extended sentence of eight years for the rape of the 17-year-old will begin. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Laura Re: Printer spitting paper Dear Webby, Dear Webby, My Brother printer keeps spitting paper onto the floor when it ejects the printed pages. Is there a way to stop that? Laura Dear Laura That's typical for most Brother printers. Just take a wire coat hanger, bend one end so that it forms a 5 inch wide rectangle. Stick the other end, that you did not modify, under the printer with the rectangle end projecting a couple of inches beyond the built in paper catcher. Bend it up slightly, and it will securely stop all the printed pages. It does not have to be strong. Once the paper eds are on it, they usually slide back down to where they belong. The alternative is to epoxy some stiff cardboard onto the paper catcher to extend it. Don't mess with the insides of the printer. The fast ejection is actually a good feature. They just traditionally have too short paper catchers. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cheddar Baked Mac and Cheese Recipe By sharon6345 [38 Posts, 95 Comments] Here is a baked macaroni and cheese that will be divine. I don't know about you, but I love baked mac and cheese. There is nothing better than a well made dish that you have prepared. Have fun and please share. Total Time: 45 min Yield: 5 Ingredients: 4 pinch seasoning salt 1 1/2 cup milk 2 eggs 3 tsp butter elbow macaroni 1 block of sharp cheddar cheese 1 block of cheddar cheese Steps: Boil your desired amount of elbow noodles. Add salt and oil to your cooking water. I use half a box as I normally feed a few people. Grate the cheddar and sharp cheddar cheese. I think Cracker Barrel is the best cheddar for this dish. I grate a block of each. You can get it in white or yellow. The color does not matter. When the macaroni is done, pour into colander. Rinse the pot with cold water to cool it down. Drop the warm noodles back in the pot. Add your favorite milk, eggs, the butter, and most of your cheese. I use three seasonings with a few shakes. You want just enough to taste the seasoning flavor, but not over powering. Mix it all up until it's nice and smooth. Put in your oven dish. Spread the rest of the cheese over the top. Put it in the over on 350 F for about 30 minutes. Turn the oven down for about 15 minutes and it's done. ____________________________________________________

"I wouldn't share my secret with just anyone," Green replies, lowering his voice so the other shoppers won't hear. "But since you're a good and faithful customer, I'll let you in on it. Fish heads. You eat enough of them, you'll be positively brilliant." "You sell them here?" the customer asks. "Only $4 apiece," says Green. The customer buys three.

Two weeks later, he's back and this time he's really angry. "Hey, Green," he says, "You're selling me fish heads for $4 a piece when I can buy the whole fish for $2. You're ripping me off!" "You see?" says Green. "You're schmarter already."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Shane Prosser, 50, Caerau, Bridgend, South Wales, Britain Man caught with van full of weed told police, ‘It’s all for me’. Jailed now. A drug dealer who was busted with a van described as ‘full to the brim’ with weed tried to convince police that it was all for him. Shane Prosser, 50, had hundreds of pounds worth of cannabis in his van – and was busted when passing traffic cops noticed the stench. The drug dealing driver and his passenger claimed they had just bought the cannabis and were going to use it for their own personal use. Police also found a key to a nearby farm. The farm in Coytrahen, Bridgend, South Wales, turned out to be the site of Prosser’s ‘substantial’ cannabis-growing factory. Prosser denied producing cannabis and possession with intent to supply but was found guilty at Cardiff Crown Court. Prosser, from Caerau, near Bridgend, was jailed for two years and eight months. ‘As well as the drugs within the vehicle, we later uncovered evidence of a cannabis-growing operation at a farm owned by Prosser.’ Detective Sergeant Kerslake from South Wales Police said: ‘Our officers saw straight through his lies and so did the jury. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Reta Re: More than two hard drives Dear Webby, Dear Webby, Is it possible to have more than two hard drives without converting the whole system to SCUSI and throwing out the old hard drives ?

>From Adam Dear Webby, once you had a list of definitions about common phrases that women use. Can you please print them again? Thanks Adam Here they are: Definitions of words and terms for men so they might understand what women are really saying. We suggest that each woman make a copy for the man in her life. FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks this will cause you to have one of those arguments. FIVE MINUTES: This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an even trade. NOTHING: This means "something", and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with 'Fine'. GO AHEAD (With Raised Eyebrows) This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine". GO AHEAD (Normal Eyebrows) This means, "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care". You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off. LOUD SIGH This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing". SOFT SIGH Again, not a word, but a non-verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay content. THAT'S OKAY This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a "Raised Eyebrow." GO AHEAD At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble. PLEASE DO This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance with the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay". THANKS A woman is thanking you. Do not faint. Just say you're welcome. THANKS A LOT This is much different from "Thanks." A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have offended her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh." Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you "Nothing".

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Clean and Freshen Artificial Flowers and Plants By Jackie H. [235 Posts, 111 Comments] Okay, you may think this sounds strange, but it works. I have mostly fresh green plants in my large front window in my home. But, I like the look of plants, so I decorate other areas with artificial flowers and plants. They only bad thing is, they get dusty. And then they look horrible when dusty. Clean and Freshen Artificial Flowers and Plants About every 6 months, "it's bath time" Yes, bath time! I bring all my artificial plants and flowers to the bathroom floor, I fill my bathtub with about 4 inches of warm water and 3 capfuls of Downy or Snuggle. Mix it around. First I do the silk flowers, I try to hold as many as possible of the stems in my hand, holding the stems, I take them turn them upside down and gently swish the flowers and leaves around in the water. This shakes off the dusty and revitalizes the brightness to their color again. Do this for only about 15 seconds. Take them out and lie them nicely on a thick bath towel. Spread them out until they dry. For the potted plants, if the plant stems can be removed, do so and repeat what I did above. If the plant stems are glued it to the pot, take the pot, turn it upside down, only getting the leaves or flowers wet (not the artificial soil) holding the pot, and now swish the leaves and/or flowers for about 15 seconds and then keep the plant upside down on the towel, you may have to lean it against a door or cabinet so it does not fall over until the wetness dries. This works, and leaves your plants and flowers not only dust free but a nice fresh smell that last for quite a while. I have been doing this for quite some time and most likely years, to these same plants. And they don't seem to mind. :) Try it, you will like it! ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ >from Chris: I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that. "Why?" my daughter asked. "Because it's been on the ground, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty and probably has germs" I replied. At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Mommy, how do you know all this stuff?" "Uh," I was thinking quickly. "All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mommy." We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information. "OH...I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the Mommy test you have to be the daddy."

Good Morning, ,
Today is Monday, July 10

Tonight, I was stalking,
big knife in hand, quietly walking,
by the light of the full moon and stars,
and the silence not broken by cars,
stalking the wild rhubarb at the corner.

OK, you continue that.

I ripped out a bunch of rhubarb, whacked off the leaves
with the knife and hauled the stalks inside. Cut them into
half inch long pieces, simmered them with a teaspoon
of molasses, 4 shakes of Cinnamon and some honey.
Heavenly desert!
Some day I'll make a rhubarb pie, but not tonight.

Have Fun!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by David Desper, 28, West Goshen, Pennsylvania Oklahoman carged with assaulting roomie for silliest reason Jerome Dewayne Whyte, 23, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma An argument over “whether ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Star Trek’ was a better movie” turned violent Saturday afternoon when an Oklahoma man shoved his roommate to the ground and began choking the male victim, police allege. According to an Oklahoma City Police Department report, the cinematic dispute resulted in the arrest of Jerome Dewayne Whyte, 23, for the assault of Burke Bradley Warren, 19. During the “Star Wars”/”Star Trek” argument, Warren “became so frustrated” with Whyte that he left the pair’s shared living area and went to his room. As he departed, Warren told Whyte, “You’re just a trick.” That comment prompted Whyte to follow Warren into his room, where Whyte allegedly twice shoved his roommate to the floor and then sought to “choke out the victim,” police reported. While being strangled, Warren “went in and out of consciousness.” Since police judged Whyte to be the “aggressor in this altercation,” he was arrested for assault and battery. He was also charged with marijuana possession. A post-arrest computer check revealed that Whyte had outstanding arrest warrants in connection with prior convictions for passing bad checks and child abuse. In both of those cases, Whyte failed to pay fines and restitution ordered at the time of his sentencing. It is unknown which film Whyte, seen in the above mug shot, believed to be superior. Whyte is currently locked up in the Oklahoma County jail. He loks likme he just realkized, "Oh. sh**, with outstanding warrants and unpaid fines, he was supposed to be on his best behavior, but now he'll go to jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ilah Re: Email tracking Dear Webby, Dear Webby, Is this another hoax?

He talked about the Great Spirit. But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish: 1. He never got married. 2. He was always telling stories. 3. He loved green pastures. But the most compelling evidence of all - 3 proofs that Jesus was a woman: 1. He fed a crowd at a moment's notice when there was no food. 2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn't get it. 3. And even when He was dead, He had to get up because there was work to do.

One Sunday, just as I was about to open the door to the small chapel, the minister came rushing up in full vestments. He said he had an emergency and asked if I'd speak to the children at their story time. He said the subject was the Twenty-third Psalm. But just as I was about to get up from the back row and talk about the good shepherd, the minister burst into the room and signaled to me that he would be able to do the story time after all. He told the children about sheep, that they weren't smart and needed lots of guidance, and that a shepherd's job was to stay close to the sheep, protect them from wild animals and keep them from wandering off and doing dumb things that would get them hurt or killed. He pointed to the little children in the room and said that they were the sheep and needed lots of guidance. Then the minister put his hands out to the side, palms up in a dramatic gesture, and with raised eyebrows said to the children, "If you are the sheep then who is the shepherd?" He was pretty obviously indicating himself. A silence of a few seconds followed. Then a young visitor said, "Jesus! Jesus is the shepherd!" The young minister, obviously caught by surprise, said to the boy, "Well, then, who am I?" The little boy frowned thoughtfully and then said with a shrug, "I guess you must be a sheep dog." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A dad walks into a market with his young son. The kid is holding a quarter. Suddenly, the boy starts choking, going blue in the face. The dad realizes the boy has swallowed the quarter and starts panicking, shouting for help. A well dressed, attractive, but serious looking woman in a blue business suit is sitting at a coffee bar in the market reading her newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. At the sound of the commotion, she looks up, puts her coffee cup down on the saucer, neatly folds the newspaper and places it on the counter, gets up from her seat and makes her way, unhurried, across the market. Reaching the boy, the woman carefully takes hold of the boy's testicles and starts to squeeze, gently at first and then ever more firmly. After a few seconds the boy convulses violently and coughs up the quarter, which the woman deftly catches in her free hand. Releasing the boy, the woman hands the coin to the father and walks back to her seat in the coffee bar without saying a word. As soon as he is sure that his son has suffered no lasting ill effects, the father rushes over to the woman and starts thanking her saying, "I've never seen anybody do anything like that before, it was fantastic. Are you a doctor?" "No," the woman replies, "a Divorce Attorney." ______________________________________________________ I remember moving that moon just a bit about 20 years ago.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by David Desper, 28, West Goshen, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania Man Charged With Murdering Teen In Savage Road Rage Incident A Pennsylvania man has been charged with the murder of a recent high school graduate during a road rage dispute last week. David Desper, 28, turned himself in to authorities early Sunday, Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said at a press conference that morning. He was charged with first- and third- degree murder, possession of an instrument of crime and reckless endangering in the slaying of 18-year-old Bianca Roberson in West Goshen Township last Wednesday. "This is a story of a savage and senseless murder," Hogan said Sunday. "Bianca Roberson, 18 years old, gunned down because somebody didn't want to give way, somebody didn't want her to merge into a lane of traffic." Roberson had just graduated from Bayard Rustin High School in West Chester, Pennsylvania. She was headed to Florida's Jacksonville University in the fall, her family told local outlets last week in appeals to help them find her killer. Roberson was attempting to merge on a road in West Goshen Township where two lanes become one when she was shot. "They jockeyed for a position, and he wasn't happy," Hogan said of the suspect. "So he pulled out a gun and shot Bianca in the head, killing her instantly." The bullet that killed Roberson matched the semi-automatic handgun found in Desper's home, he added. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Fast Eddie Re: Memory Upgrade Dear Webby, Dear Webby, I have a question for you about "Memory!"

The New York City school board has officially declared Jewish English - now dubbed Hebonics - as a third official language beside English and Ebonic. Backers of the move say the city's School District is the first in the state to recognize Hebonics as a valid language and significant attribute of New York culture. They also want to establish Hebonics before new immigrants demand Arabic to be made official. According to Howard Schollman, linguistics professor at New York University and renowned Hebonics scholar, the sentence structure of Hebonics derives from middle and eastern European language patterns, as well as Yiddish. Prof. Schollman explains, "In Hebonics, the response to any question is usually another question plus a complaint that is implied or stated. Thus: "How are you?" may be answered, "How should I be, with my feet?" Schollman says that Hebonics is a superb linguistic vehicle for expressing sarcasm or skepticism. An example is the repetition of a word with "sh" or "shm" at the beginning: "Mountains, shmountains. Stay away. You want a nosebleed?" Another Hebonics pattern is moving the subject of a sentence to the end, with its pronoun at the beginning: "It's beautiful, that dress." Schollman says one also sees the Hebonics verb moved to the end of the sentence. Thus the response to a remark such as: "He's slow as a turtle," could be: "Turtle, shmurtle! Like a fly in Vaseline he walks." Schollman provided the following examples from his textbook, Switched-On-Hebonics. Question: "What time is it?" English answer: "Sorry, I don't know." Hebonic answer: "What am I, a clock?" Remark: "I hope things turn out okay." English response: "Thanks." Hebonic response: "I should BE so lucky!" Remark: "Hurry up. Dinner's ready." English response: "Be right there." Hebonic response: "Alright already, I'm coming. What's with the 'hurry' business? A fire there is?" Remark: "I like the tie you gave me; wear it all the time." English response: "Glad you like it." Hebonic response: "So what's the matter; you don't like the other ties I gave you? Remark: "Sarah and I are engaged." English response: "Congratulations!" Hebonic response: "She could stand to gain a few pounds." Question: "Would you like to go riding with us?" English answer: "Just say when." Hebonic answer: "Riding, shmiding! Do I look like a cowboy?" To guest of honor at his birthday party: English remark: "Happy birthday." Hebonic remark: "A year schmarter you should become." Remark: "A beautiful day." English response: "Sure is." Hebonic response: "So the sun is out; what else is new?" Answering a phone call from son: English remark: "It's been a long time since you called."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Fruit Fly Trap By lalala... [829 Posts, 105 Comments] I absolutely hate fruit flies! This trap is very easy to make and works really well. I always have this trap set up on the counter, so an infestation never has a chance to take hold. :) Total Time: 5 minutes Supplies: red wine vinegar Dawn dish soap plastic wrap rubber band toothpick clear jar Steps: Put 3-4 drops of Dawn soap into the bottom of the jar. Pour 6 Tbsp. of red wine vinegar into the jar (or enough to fill it about 1/4 in.). Gently swirl the jar around to combine the ingredients. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the jar and pull it tight across the top. Secure it with a rubber band. Trim off any excess plastic. Using a toothpick, poke holes into the plastic so the flies can get in. Place your trap near any fruit you have out on the counter. Goodbye fruit flies! NOTE: I change out my mixture about every 2 weeks, more often if I am catching a lot of fruit flies. ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Latonya Daugherty, 24, Edddie Yaddow, 30, Vero Beach, Floriduh Barely Pregnant Woman Arrested For Cupcake Battery A pregnant Florida woman was arrested for domestic battery after pelting her brother with frosted cupcakes during a 1:45 AM argument Saturday in the family's Vero Beach residence, police report. According to cops, Latonya Daugherty, 24, was quarreling with her 30-year-old sibling when the verbal argument escalated. Daugherty (seen above) allegedly picked up frosted cup cakes and threw them at Edddie Yaddow. The cupcakes, an arrest affidavit notes, struck Yaddow in the arm and chest. Yaddow, investigators say, retaliated by removing frosting off his arms and wiping it in her hair. Yaddow, pictured at right, also allegedly kicked Daugherty in the stomach. In an interview with police, Daugherty's mother described her daughter as the initial primary aggressor as she threw cupcakes. But Yaddow's reaction, cops concluded, exceeded a reasonable response in self defense, prompting officers to arrest him for aggravated battery. Daugherty--who told police that she was about four to six weeks pregnant--was released from jail Saturday evening after posting $1000 bond. Yaddow remains locked up in lieu of $10,000 bond on the felony battery charge.

Millions of readers in the military and in companies, where they are not allowed email newsletters like the Humor Letter, depend on you to keep it secret.

A hacker went up to a club pro and challenged him to 18 holes of golf for $100. There was one catch, though -- the hacker gets two Gotcha's. The club pro, with his attitude, said, "No problem. Whatever the heck Gotcha's are, I'll still kick your butt all over the course. After the round, the two walked into the clubhouse. Others were stunned to see the club pro pay the hacker $100. They asked the pro how it happened. He remarked, "Well, when I was teeing off on the first hole, right in the middle of my backswing, he reached between my legs, grabbed my balls and yelled, 'Gotcha!' And you have no idea what it is like playing 18 holes waiting for the second Gotcha..."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Buying Souvenirs When You Travel When buying souvenirs when you travel try to buy something that you or the person you are buying it for can actually use. Try to avoid buying something that will just be sold at your next garage sale. Tip provided by http://www.ThriftyFun.com I bought my dad some of those photo placemats about 40 years ago. Since then, he has bought placemats on every one of his trips, and has accumulated quite a formidable collection by now. By using different ones every day, they will probably outlast him. In the meantime he has breakfast at a different scenic location every day, even when he is travelling just to his breakfast nook in his wintergarden. Have FUN!

____________________________________________________ The Governor made room on his busy calendar to hear the plea of one Senora Rodriguez that her husband be released from the state penitentiary. "What was he sentenced for?" asked the Governor gently. "For stealing a bread truck," replied the offender's wife, nervously fingering her mantilla. "Is he a good husband?" "No," she replied frankly, blushing a bit. "He beats me when he gets drunk, he bullies our children, he's unfaithful, and really not much good at all." "It sounds to me as though you're better off without him," said the Governor. "Why on earth do you want him out of jail?" "Well," she explained, "we're out of bread again." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ A young Navajo man excitedly calls his mother to say he's been in love awhile, she's the ideal girl, and he is going marry her. "Oh, that's wonderful. Hurry up and bring her over," his mother says with the excitement and impatience typical of mothers. "Not so soon," he laughs. "I want to see how well you know your son. I'm going to bring her over with two friends. You guess which one is her." The next day, he brings three beautiful Navajo women into his mother's house, sits them down on the couch, and they chat pleasantly for awhile. He then says, "Okay, guess which one I'm going to marry." She immediately replies, "The one on the right." "That's amazing! You're right. How did you know?" "I don't like her."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Juan J. Maravilla, 30, Green Bay, Wisconsin Wisconsin sex offender charged after he beat a toddler to death. On May 25, St. Mary's Hospital in Green Bay, Wisconsin, called police when a 16-month-old girl died from her injuries after being taken there by her mother. "The autopsy revealed that there was extreme amounts of abuse and the bruising on the child, which led us to believe that there were repeated acts of this abuse of an extended period of time, which this baby was susceptible to," said Captain Kevin Warych of the Green Bay Police Department. The man responsible for the toddler's death and repeated injuries is 30-year-old Juan J. Maravilla, her mother's boyfriend. Maravilla, who is a convicted sex offender, admitted to beating the little girl. He's being charged with first degree reckless homicide and child abuse intentionally causing harm. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Steve Re: Cat 6 Cable Dear Webby, Dear Webby, You had posted a link to Dalco.com a few times and I took great advantage of it.

Thanks to Sandie for bringing back this famous fable: Subject: Socrates A lesson in philosophy Keep this philosophy in mind the next time you either hear or are about to repeat a rumor. In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC), Socrates was widely known and lauded for his wisdom. One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance that ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students?" "Wait a moment," Socrates replied. "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test." "Triple filter?" "That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about my student, let's take a moment to filter what you're going to say. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?" "No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and "... "All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you a re about to tell me about my student something good?" "No, on the contrary..." "So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, even though you're not certain it's true?" The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued. "You may still pass the test though, because there is a third filter - the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me?" "No, not re ally..." " Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me at all?" Deferring to the awesome wisdom of the sage, the man, defeated and ashamed, said nothing and walked away quietly. This is the reason Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high esteem. It also explains why he never found out that Plato was banging his wife.

The banker suggests that a veterinarian have a look at the bull. The next week the banker returns to see if the vet helped. The farmer looks very pleased "The bull has serviced all my cows, broke through the fence, and has serviced all my neighbor's cows." "Wow," says the banker, "what did the vet do to that bull?" "Just gave him some pills," replied the farmer. "What kind of pills?" asked the banker. "I don't know," says the farmer, "but they sort of taste like peppermint."

The Iowa Wage and Hour Department claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to interview him.

I pay them each $600 a week, plus free room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $500 a month plus free room and board.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Monalisa Perez, 19, Halstad, Minnesota YouTuber Charged After Boyfriend Dies In Apparent Viral Video Stunt A pregnant YouTuber from Minnesota has been charged with second- degree manslaughter after a video stunt went tragically wrong, authorities say. Norman County Sheriff's Office allege in a criminal complaint that Monalisa Perez, 19, fatally shot her 22-year-old boyfriend Pedro Ruiz III in an accident outside their Halstad home around 6.30 p.m. Monday. The couple were reportedly trying to make a viral clip in which Perez fired a Desert Eagle .50 caliber pistol from around a foot away at a thick, hardback encyclopedia that Ruiz held to his chest. Perez reported that Ruiz believed that the book would stop the bullet, according to the criminal complaint. Ruiz had tested the trick on other books, but the projectile's force proved too powerful for the thick book and it pierced straight through the weighty tome, NBC reports. Ruiz died at the scene from a single gunshot wound as the couple's 3-year-old daughter reportedly looked on. Perez, who is 7-months pregnant with the couple's second child, regularly posted videos of the pair performing stunts and pulling pranks on each other to her YouTube channel La MonaLisa. Norman County Sheriff's Office says in its criminal complaint that it has seized two cameras containing footage that Perez told them had recorded the incident. Law enforcement officials initially arrested Perez on suspicion of reckless discharge of a gun. On Wednesday, she appeared at Norman County District Court via video link from jail in Crookston. Her charge was upgraded to second-degree manslaughter. If convicted, she faces up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. Perez posted $7,000 cash bail on condition she does not possess a firearm. Her next court appearance is scheduled for July 5. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bali Re: How to paste a URL Dear Webby, Dear Webby, How do you paste URL's in your browser?

Two married friends are out drinking one night, when one turns to the other and says, "You know I don't know what else to do. Whenever I go home after we've been out drinking, I turn the headlights off before I get to the driveway. I shut off the engine and coast into the garage. Take my shoes off before I go into the house, I sneak up the stairs, get undressed in the bathroom, stick my foot in the toilet and pee down my leg to prevent splashing sounds. I ease into bed and my wife STILL wakes up and yells at me for staying out so late." His friend looks at him and says, "Well, you're obviously taking the wrong approach. I screech into the driveway, slam the door, storm up the steps, pee hard into the toilet water, then use the full flush, throw my shoes in the closet, undress in the bedroom, then jump into bed, slap her on the butt and say 'WHO'S READY FOR FUN?!' She always acts like she's sound asleep. Works every time!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Killing Grass in Rock Ground Cover By Cyinda [213 Posts, 1,286 Comments] If you have the liquidation store "Big Lots" in your area, each spring & summer (& sometimes the rest of the year) they sell their own brand of Landscaping Cloth. It's only $3.99 for a 4 foot x 20 yard roll (It's cost twice that much at Home Depot). If you can remove the rocks, & put Landscaping Cloth down with your rocks on top of it, your effort will be rewarded! If not, then you can use Plain Boiling Water & if THAT doesn't work, then use household vinegar & if THAT doesn't work, then use the stronger Vinegar you can buy where they sell Plant nursery supplies.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jordan Kajewski, 29, Carroll, Iowa Mysterious Ghost Voice Turns Out To Be Naked Guy In The Chimney Brad Sapp thought he heard a mysterious voice whisper, “Get out of here,” in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, when he was sorting cans at the redemption center he owns in Carroll, Iowa, the Daily Times Herald reports. “I honestly thought I was going crazy,” Sapp told The Huffington Post, explaining that he looked all over for the source of the voice. His wife, Carrie, teased him that the voice must have been a ghost. But nine hours later, around 10 a.m., she received a scare of her own when she heard a man yelling for help inside the center’s chimney. Oh, he was also naked. apparently did not want to get his clothews dirty. The man, later identified as 29-year-old Jordan Kajewski, called out, “I’m in the chimney,” while the couple was trying to figure out what Sapp had heard earlier. He said his wife thought the voice was his at first, but she realized what was really going on when Kajewski said again, “I’m in the chimney!” Kajewski told them he fell in while playing hide and seek, but Sapp didn’t quite buy it. He accused the man of trying to break into the redemption center. Sapp stuck by his hide-and-seek story. The couple called 911, and rescue workers were able to get Kajewski out. He was then arrested on trespassing charges, according to the Times Herald. Sapp said he has no clue why Kajewski was naked, though the man did have some clothes with him. The chimney doesn’t seem wide enough for someone to undress inside, which means that Kajewski likely took off his clothes before entering. Though they weren’t exactly well-acquainted, Sapp said he had met Kajewski when the man came in on a few previous occasions to ask for a job. Sapp wasn’t hiring. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Wesley Re: W10 upgrade nagger nuisance Dear Webby, I have a Fujitsu laptop which is running Win 7 Pro.

A big-game hunter went on safari with his wife and mother-in-law. One evening, while still deep in the jungle, the wife awoke to find her mother gone. Rushing to her husband, she insisted on them both trying to find her mother. The hunter picked up his rifle, took a swig of whiskey, and started to look for her. In a clearing not far from the camp, they came upon a chilling sight: the mother- in-law was backed up against a thick, impenetrable bush, and a large male lion stood facing her. The wife cried, "What are we going to do?" "Nothing," said the hunter husband. "The silly lion got himself into this mess, let him get himself out of it. Im am not going to shoot her to save a lion."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cheap White Washcloths for Everyday By Judy, Oklahoma [60 Posts, 749 Comments] If you have young children or teenagers who wear make-up, purchasing a bulk package of plain white washcloths can be very economical! I used to have nice, thick washcloths with pretty designs until I began to have kids. Then it seemed like whenever my kids needed to wash their faces or take a bath, they always seemed to grab the best washcloths. Even my husband seemed to gravitate towards them for the dirty job of wiping grubby little dirt (or food) stained hands and faces. Pretty soon my nice washcloths were ugly and stained! It got even worse when my oldest (a girl) began to wear make-up, then we could add lipstick, mascara, and eye liner to the dirt, fruit punch stains, and even the occasional "boo-boo" blood and cake frosting! The final straw was when my oldest son decided to try the 'gothic-look' and added HIS black eye liner to the mix! And then they began to experiment with the hair dye... I went to the store and bought a big 12 pack of white washcloths for the family bathroom. What remained of the nice stuff was kept in the master bathroom for me (or to be brought out for company). It didn't matter how dirty and stained they got, I could toss them in the washer with some bleach and get the stains out. When they got too grubby looking, they got sent to the rag box. It's been 10 years since I started this habit and I am only on my 2nd pack of 12 white washcloths! Since we've added 5 grandkids to the mix, I'm sure we'll continue this practice for a few more years as you can tell from my twin grandsons Riley and Rhaynan on their 2nd birthday! ;D By lyonpridej from OK You can get those at the Dollar General store and sometimes at the Dollar store. Home Depot has packs of 12"x 12" Microfiber cloths that are not fluffy, but even more absorbent. For spills, that are not quite serious enough to haul out the Wet/Dry Vaccum, those are ideal. Each one soaks up a mug's worth of liquid. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Michael Ren Wysolovski, 31, Duluth, Georgia Teen Missing 13 Months Rescued From Georgia Home Kidnapper arrested A 17-year-old North Carolina girl who disappeared from her home more than a year ago was rescued after her family received a tip on Facebook. Hailey Burns, who was 16 when she was abducted in 2016, was found in 31-year-old Michael Ren Wysolovski’s home in Duluth, Georgia on Saturday, according to the FBI. Wysolovski has been charged with aggravated sodomy, cruelty to children, deprivation in the first degree, interference with custody and false imprisonment. A judge on Monday ordered Wysolovski held without bond. Burns was reunited with her family on Sunday. “Hailey is so happy to be home and safe,” her mother, Shaunna Burns, said in a statement to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “She is happy to be in her clothes. … In her bed. With her family.” The girl’s parents discovered she was missing from their Charlotte, North Carolina home on the morning of May 23, 2016. There was no sign at the time of forced entry into the home, police said. “We woke up one morning to go wake her up for school like we do every single day and there was nobody there,” her father, Tony Burns, told Charlotte’s WCNC News last year. The teen’s parents told WCCB News she has Asperger’s Syndrome and struggled to make friends. “She really wasn’t 16, she was like maybe 12, so naive and so impressionable and so easily manipulated,” her mom said. Police suspect Wysolovski met the teen online and lured her out of her home. Authorities had no leads on her whereabouts, leading the FBI to offer a $15,000 reward for information in the case. On June 22, Tony Burns posted on Facebook that 394 days had passed since he’d last seen his daughter. “I see her room empty and pictures around me and just wish I could hug my little girl again,” he wrote. “I miss her so very much.” Unbeknownst to Tony Burns, a break in the case was just days away. According to WSOC-TV, a woman from Romania contacted the teen’s parents via Facebook on Friday and told them she had been in contact with the girl online, but did not know where she was being held. All the tipster had was a photo the teen had taken out a window of Wysolovski’s Georgia residence. The family provided that photo to the FBI and agents used it to determine the teen’s location. Authorities have not released further details about the case. Shaunna Burns told WSOC-TV her daughter has lost 15-20 pounds and is trying to readjust to life back home. “There are changes in my daughter,” she said. “She is not the same person that left and that is the hardest part of this.” Wysolovski is set to appear at his preliminary hearing on July 7. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jan Re: Copyright Symbol Dear Webby, A year or so ago (maybe 3 or 4) you gave a list of symbols.

An 8-year-old girl went to her dad, who was working in the yard. She asked him, "Daddy, what is sex?" The father was surprised that she would ask such a question, but decides that if she is old enough to ask the question, then she is old enough to get a straight answer. He proceeded to tell her all about the "birds and the bees." When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Remove Water Stains in Toilet By Marty Dick [169 Posts, 1,002 Comments] I am a real nutcase about my bathrooms. Our toilets are still fairly new, so there is no need for them to have brown stains. I had a ring around my bowl and streaks coming down where the water runs into the bowl. Since I use CLR on my faucets I decided to dump some into the toilet bowl to try and get rid of that stubborn stain that wouldn't go away. It worked! Now the bowl is new potty clean. ____________________________________________________

After three miles no violations. Then six miles no violations and then after ten miles the policeman turned to the mayor and said, "I think I'll stop that driver and congratulate him on being so careful." He pulled the car to the side of the road and went slowly to the drivers window. He complemented the driver for being so careful and the driver said, "Hic! Ya gotta be careful when you're ash drunk ash I am!" ___________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Grant Sides, 25, Birmingham, Alabama Beloved pet killed after Alabama man shoots into neighbor's apartment A Birmingham man is jailed after he reportedly opened fire inside his Highland Park apartment, killing his own dog and a dog who was asleep on the bed in the adjacent apartment. Grant Randall Sides, 25, was sought on felony warrants for a shooting complaint and two counts of aggravated cruelty to animals, according to a Crime Stoppers bulletin. Birmingham police investigated the incident, and felony warrants were obtained against him on Friday. Sides was undergoing booking at the Jefferson County Jail at 4 p.m. Monday. His bond is set at $30,000. The shooting happened about 3:30 p.m. Friday, May 26, at an apartment complex on 22nd Street South. Brandon Watkins said he was at work when his landlord called him saying his neighbor Sides had fired shots and they believe some of those bullets had entered Watkins' home. Watkins has one dog of his own, and was keeping his brother's two dogs while he and his family were out of town on vacation. He rushed home to find crime scene tape surrounding the complex. "When I got there, they let me know he had shot his dog and had shot rounds in my apartment,'' he said. "One of my brother's dogs was hit and killed." Two of the pets in Watkins' apartment were in kennels. The third 12-year-old Walter was asleep on Watkins' bed. The shooting happened in Sides' kitchen, which shares a wall with Watkins' bedroom, and the bullet bore through his pillow. At least six shots bore through his wall. "If it had been later in the night, he would have killed me," Watkins said. "Walter was on my pillow where I sleep." Neighbors told Watkins that after Sides fired the shots, he ran out of the apartment yelling that he killed someone and fled the scene. He was arrested moments later when he crashed his vehicle on Highland Avenue, but apparently made bond pending the ongoing investigation. "It's been kind of crazy," Watkins said. "It's all been a blur." Watkins said he had to call and break the news to his brother, who turned around and headed back to Birmingham. "My niece is really upset,'' he said. "She's 9 and Walter was 12 so that's all she's ever known." He said there's still blood on his carpet from where Walter collapsed after getting shot. His own dog, Lennie, is still suffering from the ordeal. "He's traumatized,'' he said. "He won't go back there." Walter's owner, Colby Watkins, said the whole thing is a sad and avoidable situation. "My friends and family are heartbroken over the loss of Walter, but it pales in comparison to the disgust and and anger about this guy killing his own dog in his own kitchen, and the blatant disregard for those around him by firing his gun indiscriminately into other people's homes,'' he said. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dani Re: Alarm timer Dear Webby, Once again I need your expertise.

You can leave it at it's default siren, or select any sounds that you have. You can even set it to start a program or if you have a USB powered relay, you can set it to start the pump or valve for watering the garden. You can set it to repeat, like I got mine set to go off every day at a quarter to noon, because my dad comes onto Skype video at noon. That's it. No ads, no browser redirect or search redirect, absolutely nothing on the side. Just a reliable little alarm. It folds away into an icon in the right bottom ^ (More) link until it goes off.

The novice teed up and smacked the ball straight down the fairway and onto the green, where it stopped inches from the hole. "Now what?", the fellow asked the speechless pro. "Uh... you're supposed to hit the ball into the cup" the pro finally said, after he was able to speak again. The retiree replied, "Oh great! NOW you tell me!"

____________________________________________________ >From Eda Over the weekend I happened to catch a glimpse of some National Dog Show event as I flipped through the channels. The dog on the screen at the time was a white English sheepdog. It was simply a mound of fur with four legs. The judge was brushing back the dog's hair so she could look at the animal's eyes. The TV announcer was explaining that each dog has to have its eyes checked to make sure they're the right shape, color, etc., etc. Another announcer chimed in with, "Well, plus the judge has to see if the dog HAS both of its eyes. 'Cuz if you start combing through hair and you only see ONE eye . . . you're looking at the wrong end of the dog."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Alexander Shae Johnson, 22, Orlando, Florida TSA worker caught stealing cash from bag at Orlando airport Most of us have had valuables stolen by TSA employees, and of course they always stick together and deny it. Here finally one got caught. Let's hope he gets a judge, from whom TSA employees have stolen a camera or other valuables. A Transportation Security Administration employee has been arrested after video showed him stealing cash at a Florida airport. The Orlando Sentinel reports 22-year-old Alexander Shae Johnson was arrested on Thursday and records say he faces a third- degree felony grand theft charge. A passenger selected for a pat-down search while going through security at Orlando International Airport saw Johnson standing near her bag. Orlando police say she went through her bag afterward and realized cash was missing before noticing a bulge in Johnson's shirt pocket that turned out to be money. Johnson was arrested despite saying the cash was his, as video showed otherwise. The TSA said in a statement that Johnson was fired. Johnson was released on bail from the Orange County jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Glen Re: Lightning protection for DSL Dear Webby, We are moving to a hilltop and are going to be hit with lightning proabbly as often as the previous owner. I am isolating the power with an electric motor driven generator, so I am not worried about power, just data. What do you recommend to use for lightning protection for the phone and DSL line? Glen Dear Glen Hyperlink Tech makes heavy industrial grade phone line lightning protectors http://www.hyperlinktech.com/web/hgln_dsl.php That will take care of lightning strikes onto phone towers and phone lines. However, I would also add active lightning strike prevention to the building. First, get perfect grounding through metal water and gas lines, plus ground rods. Then put lightning brushes or fans (bundles of sharpened metal rods) every two feet on your roof top. Connect them to ground. They ionize the air and repell and divert lightning. Next put up a metal ham radio tower or any similar metal tower six to 12 feet from the house and 50% higher than the house. Ground that to a separate ground rod system that is not directly connected to the house grounding system. If you set it up like that, even if lightning is headed for your house, it will zig-zag over to the tower and leave the house alone. Have FUN! DearWebby

I urgently needed a few days off work, but I knew the boss would not allow me to take a leave. I thought that maybe if I acted "CRAZY" then he would tell me to take a few days off. So I hung upside down on the ceiling and made funny noises. My co-worker (who's blonde) asked me what I was doing? I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb so that the boss would think I was "CRAZY" and give me a few days off. A few minutes later the boss came into the office and asked "What are you doing?" I told him I was a light bulb. He said "You are clearly stressed out. Go home and recuperate for a couple of days." I jumped down and walked out of the office. When my co-worker (the blonde) followed me, the boss asked her "...And where do you think you're going?" She said, "I'm going home too, I can't work in the dark!"

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Laquita Lewis, 34, Houston, Texas Woman charged in stabbing death of 4-year-old daughter Officials say a woman has been charged with capital murder in the stabbing death of her 4-year-old daughter at a Houston apartment complex. Deputy Thomas Gilliland of the Harris County Sheriff's Office says 34-year-old Laquita Lewis texted family members Sunday, telling them she had hurt her child and apologizing. Gilliland says Lewis texted from the hospital, where she had been taken after being injured in a traffic accident. The relatives contacted the sheriff's office. When deputies arrived, they found Fredricka Allen dead at the apartment around 9 p.m. Authorities believe the girl was stabbed to death earlier in the day, reports CBS affiliate KHOU. Police say Lewis stabbed the girl multiple times in the chest and left her on the floor of the master bedroom, the station reports. Lewis is being held in the Harris County jail Monday. Jail records do not list an attorney to speak for her. Gilliland says deputies haven't determined why Lewis killed her daughter, though they believe she got into a fight with her boyfriend earlier Sunday. "There's not enough words to describe the horrible death of this child," Gilliland told KHOU. BLM ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Trevor Re: Big drive defragging Dear Webby, we got a new computer in the office with a 2 TB hard drive. How often should that drive be defragged? I'm afraid it will take a whole shift to do that. Trevor Dear Trevor Partition that drive. Either do it yourself, get a program like Partition-magic, or pay somebody to do it. Make one small 20 - 30 GB partition for Windows and the software, and use the rest for storing stuff. I imagine the reason for the huge drive is to store incoming faxes. If those are just viewed and printed but not annotated or edited, then they don't change in size and rarely need defragging. That way you can just quickly defrag the small partition where Windows keeps changing things. That should only take a few minutes. Then you can defrag the big partition over night. Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jameson McCarthy, Greenwood, Indiana Robber falls on head off van roof after tasered at end of police chase, now faces felony charges An armed robbery suspect fell off the top of a stolen van after police struck him with a Taser. Police were first called to the Greenwood Discount Tobacco store at U.S. 31 and Fry Rd., just south of the Greenwood Park Mall around 7:30 p.m. Thursday evening. A worker at the store said the business was robbed at gunpoint. Police said during the robbery, the clerk was pistol-whipped and the robbery suspect stole a customer's van. Police said they located the stolen van and chased it into the Whispering Trails neighborhood where the suspect drove through yards and almost hit other cars and houses. Police said the chase turned back onto Fry Road where the driver, later identified as Jameson McCarthy, revealed a gun to police. At the intersection of U.S. 31, the suspect hit another vehicle and then crashed into a pole. McCarthy then climbed out of the window and onto the roof of the van where he was confronted by police. Police shocked McCarthy with a Taser which resulted in a head- first fall off the van onto the ground below. McCarthy was treated at Eskenazi Hospital and was then taken to the Marion County jail on an unrelated charge. He was charged Friday in Johnson County on these new counts: 1. Robbery Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury Injury to someone other than a defendant 2. Robbery Taking property by force or threatening the use of force while armed 3.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Mini Raspberry Cheesecakes By lalala... [827 Posts, 105 Comments] Ingredients: For the crust: 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs 4 Tbsp. butter, melted 3 Tbsp. sugar For the filling: 2 lbs. cream cheese, room temperature 4 large eggs, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar pinch of salt 1 tsp. vanilla extract For the raspberry swirl: 6 oz. fresh raspberries 2 tbsp. sugar OR: raspberry jam, heated Directions: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line cupcake pans with paper liners. Place graham crackers in a large measuring cup and smash with your hand. (I put a baggie over my hand so that the crackers wouldn't poke me.) To ensure that all of the crumbs were small, I poured the crumbs into the baggie and smashed them more with the glass measuring cup. In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. Using a fork, stir until well blended and all the dry ingredients are moistened. Put 1/2 Tbsp. of the mixture into each cupcake liner. Press firmly into the bottom. (I used a small medicine cup to evenly press the crumbs down.) Bake crusts for 5 minutes. Place on a cooling rack and allow to cool completely. To make the filling, place cream cheese in a bowl and beat on medium-high speed until fluffy. Add sugar and beat until smooth. Mix in the salt and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Return the crusts to the muffin tin. Put 1 Tbsp. of filling into each muffin liner. To make puree filling: Combine raspberries and sugar in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth, then pour through a fine mesh sieve to remove the seeds. To use raspberry jam: Place approx. 1 cup of jam into a microwave-safe bowl and heat until runny. Drop 1/2 tsp. of warm jam into the center of each and using a toothpick swirl the jam into the filling. Bake 18 minutes, or until filling is set, rotating the pan halfway through baking. Check frequently at the end of the cook time and check with a toothpick. They will appear puffed up at first but will settle down as they cool. Transfer the cheesecakes to a wire cooling rack and let cool to room temperature. Transfer them to the refrigerator and chill for at least 4 hours before serving. This recipe makes A LOT of mini cheesecakes. You can freeze them and defrost to serve. Or you can make some minis and a batch of full-sized cupcake ones too (that's what I did!). To make cupcake sized cheesecakes: Prepare the crust mixture and cheesecake mixture using the same instructions as above. Use 1 Tbsp. crust mixture for each crust. Use 3 Tbsp. cheesecake filling per cheesecake. Use 1 1/2 tsp. jam (dropped in 3 spots) for each cheesecake. Bake for 32 minutes, or until filling is set, rotating pan halfway through. Check frequently at the end of cook time and check with a toothpick. Servings:approx. 96 minis, 32 full-size Prep Time:20 Minutes Cooking Time:approx. 18 Minutes By Laurel from Port Orchard, WA ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ The Miracle Toddler Diet People are always on the lookout for a new diet. The trouble with most diets is that you don't get enough to eat (the starvation diet), you don't get enough variation (the liquid diet) or you go broke (the all-meat diet).

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lance Churchill, 33, Shelton, Connecticut, Man arrested for attacking and screaming at child who played 'keep away' with father's day card A father is facing charges after he allegedly picked up a child at a day care center in Shelton, Connecticut, yelled at him and pinned him to the ground. Oh, and when officers arrived, the man demanded the 5-year-old be arrested, according to NBC Connecticut. Lance Churchill, 33, was arrested June 16 for the alleged incident, which started when a group of dads came to the Apple Tree Day Care for a Father’s Day celebration. All the children, including Churchill’s son, made cards for their fathers. Churchill was looking at the card when another kid at the center playfully grabbed the card out of his hands, according to Shelton Police. The child ran around the room while the 6-foot-4-inch, 270- pound suspect chased him. When Churchill finally caught up with the kid, he picked up the child and lifted him over his head, police said. Then he pinned the kid to the ground and screamed at him in front of the other children, according to the New Haven Register. Day care staff managed to rip the kid away from Churchill and called police. When police arrived, Churchill asked them to arrest the 5- year-old boy, according to the Shelton Herald. It’s probably not a spoiler alert to say that’s not how things played out. Instead, they arrested Churchill on charges of risk of injury to a minor and disorderly conduct. He was later released on a $1,500 bond and has a court date for June 30. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Connie Re: Electricity bill from leaving the computer on Dear Webby, Leaving your computer on all the time, what is the impact on the electric bill? Living on S.S., my budget is quite strict. I use a laptop, wireless mouse and keyboard, and a 15 inch LCD monitor. Connie Dear Connie I got it set to turn the monitor off after 5 minutes of inactivity, but keep the hard drives running forever. Be EXTREMELY careful with crap like Avira, that changes your power settings behind your back, and sabotages your hard drives by turning them off in the middle of a defrag. Whenever you use Avira or any of those supposed speed up or improvement programs, ALWAYS check your power settings to make sure they did not change them behind your back. A modern hard drive takes about the same amount of power as your phone charger. Don`t worry about it. That amounts to $1 - $2 a month. A trashed hard drive is a LOT more expensive. It is good to be concerned about the environment and not unnecessarily use coal produced power in areas, where the environmentalists prevent clean nuclear or wind power, but don`t get carried away. If you do want to save a total of maybe $5 a month, shut down properly, never partially with some silly power saver gimmick. Have FUN! DearWebby
Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing their contract's sick-leave provisions. One morning at the bargaining table, the company's chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, "This man," he announced, "called in sick yesterday!" There on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score. The silence in the room was broken by a union negotiator. "Wow," he said. "Think of what kind of score he could have had if he hadn't been sick!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Chicken Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce By attosa [339 Posts, 1,593 Comments] I love making Vietnamese spring rolls, especially for summertime picnics and potlucks. They look pretty fancy but they are so easy to make. You can use any number of fillings for yours. Just like any recipe, it's fun to stray from the usual to suit your tastes! Total Time: 30 minutes Yield: 10 spring rolls Ingredients: 10 rice wrappers 1 cup cooked shredded chicken 1 Persian cucumber, julienned 1 medium tomato, sliced 1/4 carrot, sliced thin 3 whole green onions, julienned 1 cup lettuce, shredded 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped 1/2 cup Thai basil leaves 1 cup bean sprouts 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter 1 garlic clove, grated 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice 1 Tbsp soy sauce 1 Tbsp fish sauce (or more soy sauce) 1 tsp sugar 1/3 cup water Steps: Fill a large bowl with warm water. Dip one rice wrapper into the water for 1 second to soften. Lay rice wrapper flat on a work surface. Start laying down your more colourful fillings in the center in a row. I started with carrot, tomato and basil. Add a little bit of each one of the other fillings, leaving about 1.5 inches uncovered on each side. Fold sides inward, then tightly roll the wrapper. It will stick to itself to seal. Repeat with the rest of the wrappers and fillings. To make the dipping sauce, in a bowl, mix together the peanut butter, garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, and water until it's smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with the rolls as a dip and enjoy! Don`t get spooked by her huge number of ingredients! You can think of it as a fridge-cleaner. Use whatever you got handy. The game is reverse fortune cookie. Make everyone guess what is in the rolls and slide their guess ballot into a fortune cookie and pass it on to the person on their right. If nobody guesses it, the cook wins. There are no limits to what you can use. Leftover Macaroni and cheese with ham and pickle bits added, and fine chopped onion and colorful sweet mini peppers is one example. Egg salad with very fine cut spicy, colorful peppers is another example. Tuna salad, if you have more salad than bread, cottage cheese and well drained peach cubes, anything! The only rules are that it is finger food, can be eaten while driving, and does not run or drip into your sleeve. Any suitable chip dip works fine. In a pinch, hand mix almond butter and cream cheese and a pinch of salt. Have FUN! DearWebby

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Cheyenne Summer Stuckey, 21, Fort Worth, Texas Texas mom messaged on Facebook while baby drowned in tub Police say a Texas mother was messaging on Facebook while her 8-month-old daughter drowned in a bathtub last week, reports CBS DFW. Cheyenne Summer Stuckey, 21, told investigators she put her daughter Zayla Hernandez in the tub in their suburban Fort Worth home on June 13 and left her unsupervised with the water running "for only a couple minutes," the station reports. She said she became "distracted" by another child, Facebook Messenger and a television playing loudly. But a Parker County sheriff's investigation revealed Stuckey was messaging two people on Facebook for at least 18 minutes while the infant was drowning, the station reports. Stuckey told investigators she rushed to check on the child when she realized she had forgotten about her, but found her floating in the tub face-down and unresponsive. Stuckey said she tried to resuscitate the girl but "did not know how." She told investigators she wasn't sure if she had placed a bathtub stopper in the drain. Emergency responders weren't able to resuscitate the girl, and she was pronounced dead at a hospital. A Tarrant County Medical Examiner's preliminary autopsy report revealed Zayla died from drowning. Stuckey was booked in to the Parker County Jail and charged with injury to a child. Her bond has not been set. Several other children in the home were reportedly removed and placed in foster care. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Vin Re: Toolbars and icons Dear Webby, Every program I install seems to come with some silly toolbar that has maybe one icon on it that I use and half a dozen that are totally useless. If they have so little confidence in their program that they feel they have to provide an UN- install icon on prime, easy to get to, toolbar space, why sell it in the first place? How can I restrict all those silly toolbars to just one icon? Vin DearVin You can't. Just delete all those silly little toolbars. Make desktop shortcuts to the programs that you need, then make a desktop folder and drag them in there. Next you drag that folder into a subdirectory, and make one desktop shortcut icon for that. That way YOU control which icons are taking up space. Have FUN! DearWebby

"That's for 60 years of bad sex," she replies. A few minutes later, the husband picks up his cane and whaps his wife across the shins. "Ow!!" she yells. "What the heck was THAT for??" The husband looks at her and says, "That's for knowing the difference."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thoroughly Cleaning A Cast Iron Fry Pan By likekinds [346 Posts, 1,496 Comments] You can tell me not to use soap on my cast iron pans til the cows come home. I will use it, anyway. I refuse to put away a pan that has only been scraped and wiped. To me, that borders on 'nasty'. I make country style gravy in my cast iron frying pan. I fry thinly sliced sweet potatoes sprinkled with brown sugar, in that pan, cooking till the sugar is syrupy or caramelized. Imagine just 'wiping' that pan. If the pan is properly seasoned, hot, soapy water will not affect that season. Almost always, a ruined season is due to overheating an empty pan while preheating it. When preheating a pan, don't allow it to get hot enough to smoke. If you see even the slight smoke, don't just turn down the heat, remove the pan from the heat. The inside bottom of a well seasoned pan will be smooth and shiny. No scrubbing should be required. The inside walls of the pan will often be rougher. Scrub these with something no more abrasive than a plastic mesh ball or a nylon brush. Soak the pan for a while if need be. Never use steel wool, nylon pads, or powdered cleansers on a pan. When the pan is clean and rinsed, put it on a burner at medium heat. Watch carefully. The instant all water is burned way, remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool. With a paper towel, apply a thin film of cooking oil to the pan before putting it away. If you have cooked fish or onions in the pan, you can rest assured the next time you scramble eggs, they will taste of fish or onions, if you only wipe the pan 'clean'. Even soap and hot water will not remove these scents. Removing lingering scents from a pan is simple. After washing and rinsing the pan, fill with water and place on medium heat burner. Add a tablespoon of baking soda to the water. Simmer two or three minutes and rinse, then back to the burner to dry. I find drying the pan with heat is more thorough, thus preventing any rust, especially on the bottom where it is most likely to appear. It's like this, I wash my cast iron pans in hot, soapy water after every use; I always have. An egg will slide around in my pan as if the pan was coated with Teflon or T fal. Where are those cows, anyway? It's time for their evening milking.

The psychiatrist was interviewing a first-time patient. "You say you're here," he inquired, "because your family is worried about your taste in socks?" "That's correct," muttered the patient. "I like wool socks." "But that's perfectly normal," replied the doctor. "Many people prefer wool socks to those made from cotton or acrylic. In fact, I myself like wool socks." "You DO?" exclaimed the man excitedly. "With oil and vinegar or just a squeeze of lemon?"

____________________________________________________ Jones is driving past the state mental hospital when his left rear tire suffers a flat. While Jones is changing the tire, another car goes by, running over the hub cap in which Jones was keeping the lug nuts. The nuts are all knocked into a nearby storm drain. Jones is at a loss for what to do and is about to go call a cab when he hears a shout from behind the hospital fence, where one of the inmates has been watching the whole thing. "Hey, pal! Why don't you just take one lug nut off each of the other three wheels? That'll hold your tires on until you can get to a garage or something." Jones is startled by the patient's seeming rationality, but realizes the plan will work, and installs the spare tire without incident. Before he leaves, he calls back to the patient. "You know, that was pretty sharp thinking. Why do they have you in there?" The patient smiles and says, "I'm in here because I'm crazy, not because I'm stupid."
