Kathleen sent me a long letter about Caring bridge
Caring Bridge is not just for taking your dogs for a walk 
and doing your shopping, if you have an accident and can't 
do it yourself for a while. It also works as a central information
resource, where out of state friends and relatives can look 
up how you are doing, if you are in hospital and can't update
them yourself. Definitely worth checking out!

Have FUN!

>From Roland A New York retail clerk was suffering from aching feet. "It's all those years of standing," his doctor declared. "You need a vacation. Go to Miami, soak your feet in the ocean and you'll feel better." When the man got to Florida, he went into a hardware store, bought two large buckets and headed for the beach. "How much for two buckets of that seawater?" he asked the lifeguard. "A dollar a bucket," the fellow replied with a straight face. The clerk paid him, filled his buckets, went to his hotel room and soaked his feet. They felt so much better he decided to repeat the treatment that afternoon. Again he handed the lifeguard two dollars. The young man took the money and said, "Help yourself." The clerk started for the water, then stopped in amazement. The tide was out. "Wow," he said, turning to the lifeguard. "Some business you got here!"
A man limped into the doctor's office and said, "Doctor, my knee hurts so bad, I can hardly walk!" The doctor slowly eyed him from head to toe, paused and then said, "Sir, how old are you?"

You are almost one hundred years old, and you're complaining that your knee hurts? Well, what did you expect?" The man said, "Well, my other knee is 98 years old too, and it doesn't hurt!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Sandra Russell, 26, and Steve McDaniel, 29, Rule's 2 Da game of Hoez During a raid on the Long Island home of an alleged pimp, cops recovered a handwritten list of ten management rules to follow when turning women out on the street, investigators report. In announcing today’s arrest of eight defendants for their alleged roles in a prostitution and heroin ring, Suffolk County prosecutors released a copy of “Rule's 2 Da game of Hoez!!!” The list, which investigators allege was prepared by Steve McDaniel, was recovered from the Coram home he shares with Sandra Russell. McDaniel, 29, and Russell, 26, were allegedly the ringleaders of the narcotics operation. Additionally, Russell has been accused of running the prostitution ring from her residence, where she paid hookers in heroin, according to Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota. The “Hoez” rules was a “document from Steven McDaniel outlining for Russell his management advice on the operation of a prostituton business,” added Spota. Pictured in the above mug shots, McDaniel (3 counts) and Russell (15 counts) were named today in a felony indictment filed in Supreme Court
Tech Support Pits: From: Sophie Re: Remove old drivers ? Dear Webby, I bought the mouse that you recommended and I'm VERY happy with it. However, I have a question. I didn't UN-install the driver for the old mouse. Is that going to cause grief some day? Thanks Sophie Dear Sophie Unused drivers are like last weeks horoscope: Not looked at any more. Windows only looks at the driver for the currently active mouse. Old mouse drivers are totally ignored. However, since they do take up space, I recommend to un-install no longer used drivers.

A woman in Arkansas brought her baby in to see the doctor, and he determined right away the baby had an ear ache. He wrote a prescription for ear drops. In the directions he wrote, "Put two drops in right ear every four hours" and he abbreviated "right" as an R with a circle around it. Several days passed, and the woman returned with her baby, complaining that the baby still had an earache, and his little behind was getting really greasy with all those drops of oil. The doctor looked at the bottle of ear drops and sure enough, the pharmacist had typed the following instructions on the label: "Put two drops in R ear every four hours."

Don't be in a rush to install Microsoft updates or McAfee
updates. They clash and cause major problems.
For now the fix is to start in Safe Mode and revert to before
the Microsoft Updates.

McAfee got really busy and seems to have fixed their 
problem by about 4:30 am this morning. They sure wasted 
a lot of my time! Don't combine updates for a while!

I was the nurse caring for a couple's newborn first child, a son, after his cesarean birth. Since the mother was asleep under general anesthesia we took our tiny charge directly to the newborn nursery to introduce him to his daddy. While cuddling his son for the first time, he noticed the baby's ears conspicuously standing out from his head. He expressed his concern that some kids might call his son names like "Dumbo." The pediatrician reassured the new dad that his son was healthy, the ears could be easily corrected later during childhood. The father still worried about his wife's reaction to those large protruding ears. "She doesn't take things as easily as I do," he worried. By this time, the new mother was ready to meet her precious son. I placed the tiny bundle in his mother's arms and eased the blanket back so that she could gaze upon her child for the first time. She took one look at her baby's face and looked to her husband and gasped, "Oh, Honey! Look! He has your elephant ears!"
A man pacing back and forth glanced at his watch and yelled upstairs to his wife, "Honey, are you ready yet?" Shouting back, the woman replied, "For crying out loud, Ed, I've been telling you for the last hour... I'll be ready in a minute!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Cesar Osuna. Child Abuser Who Fled To Mexico Found Impaled On Fence Cesar Osuna, a former Delano, California man accused of beating his girlfriend's 2-year-old son to death, suffered a gruesome death after he was found impaled on a fence. New information has been released after the conviction of a mother, 23-year-old Noemi Mendoza, who reportedly left her 2-year-old son in the custody of a man she knew to be dangerous. According to police, Cesar Osuna fled from the scene after he allegedly used a blunt object to beat his girlfriend's 2-year-old son to death. An autopsy revealed that the boy died from blunt force trauma, multiple rib fractures, torn abdominal membranes and a skull fracture. Police say Osuna abused the child in the past, and that the mother was aware of the abuse and left the child in his care anyway. Mendoza was convicted of willful cruelty to a child, while Osuna fled the country to Mexico to avoid prosecution. Investigators say Osuna was on a job, when he touched a live wire, fell and was impaled on a metal fence, where he eventually died. Delano police traveled to Mexico and met with federal police who showed them the body. Photographs of various tattoos and other physical attributes belonging to Osuna were matched to the body found in Mexico. The mother, who is now serving her sentence, has two children and is pregnant with twins. Her children will be cared for by relatives while she completes her sentence.

A well respected surgeon was relaxing on his sofa one evening just after arriving home from work. As he was tuning into the evening news, the phone rang. The doctor calmly answered it and heard the familiar voice of a colleague on the other end of the line. "We need a fourth for poker," said the friend. "I'll be right over," whispered the doctor. As he was putting on his coat, his wife asked, "Is it serious?" "Oh yes, quite serious," said the doctor gravely. "In fact, three doctors are there already!"

Good Morning,  !

Have you noticed that the left-wing media is whining about
Putin and his election victory, like they did about Bush, 
when he won. It really irks them, when a conservative, 
pro-Free Enterprise politician wins. Putin's election was not
a close one at all, but the left-wing media believe that the 
losers have a right to violent protests, and that assaulting
police or pro-government people is "free speech".

Well, Putin knows how to deal with that. He used to be a 
colonel in the KGB. And he has a decisive majority of voters
on his side, even if The Los Angeles Times  and certain
Union spokesmen don't agree.

I view the happenings in Russia as a preview of what we will
see here this winter. If the population shift towards the right
continues and the left-wing media does not get what they 
want, they will be inciting protests and violence. 
Violence on behalf of the Left is "free speech", and besides
that, blood and gore sells a lot more ads anyway.

I have a hunch the CIA has a herd of people in Moscow,
taking notes.

A man bought a donkey from a preacher. The preacher told the man that this donkey had been trained in a very unique way, (being the donkey of a preacher). The only way to make the donkey go, was to say, "Hallelujah!" The only way to make the donkey stop, was to say, "Amen!" The man was pleased with his purchase and immediately got on the animal to try out the preacher's instructions. "Hallelujah!" shouted the man. The donkey began to trot. "Amen!" shouted the man. The donkey stopped immediately. "This is great!" said the man. With a "Hallelujah," he rode off very proud of his new purchase. The man traveled for a long time through some mountains. Soon he was heading toward a cliff. He could not remember the word to make the donkey stop. "Stop," said the man. "Halt!" he cried. The donkey just kept going. "Oh, no... Bible!....Church!...Please Stop!!" shouted the man. The donkey just began to trot faster. He was getting closer and closer to the cliff edge. Finally, in desperation, the man said a prayer. "Please, dear Lord. Please make this donkey stop before I go off the end of this mountain, In Jesus name, AMEN." The donkey came to an abrupt stop just one step from the edge of the cliff. "HALLELUJAH!", shouted the man.

Problem using Logitech wireless keyboard 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, August 19

If you are planning to buy a laser printer, stay away from
Samsung and HP. They are probably the same printers 
anyway, with just different stickers on them. Apparently
they have gone a bit too far to combat third party toner
cartridges, so far, that they block their own new cartridges.

In Europe they have laws protecting consumers from that
kind of greed. They even mandate, that all cell phones MUST
accept standard batteries. No more slightly different 
batteries for different models or brands. And the same with
printer consumables.

In North America we don't have that kind of consumer
protection, so we have to expect sleazy tricks from certain
companies. If you make enough noise and get enough thrid 
party support, Samsung will reluctantly replace the printer
with one, that can cope with the new Samsung cartridges.
In the meantime, you might be printing on the printer,that
you borrowed from mom, or buy a DELL.

I have learned to stay away from Samsung and HP printers,
but since I use toner from Atlantic Inkjet .com I would
not have the problem with Samsung's own new cartridges
anyway.

An eccentric philosophy professor gave a one question final exam after a semester dealing with a broad array of topics. The class was already seated and ready to go when the professor picked up his chair, plopped it on his desk and wrote on the board: "Using everything we have learned this semester, prove that this chair does not exist." Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in furious fashion. Some students wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting to refute the existence of the chair. One member of the class however, was up and finished in less than a minute. Weeks later when the grades were posted, the rest of the group wondered how he could have gotten an A when he had barely written anything at all. His answer consisted of two words: "What chair?"
An old couple was just settling in to bed one night when the phone rang. The husband got out of bed and went into the living room to answer the phone. His wife could hear him say, "Hello?" Then he said, "Sure is." Then he hung up the receiver and went back to bed. A minute later the phone rang again. The husband got out of bed and went into the other room and his wife could hear him say, "Hello?" and then he said, "Sure is." And again he hung up the receiver and went back to bed. The wife asked who it was. The man said he didn't know. The wife then asked, "Well, what did the person say?" He said, "It's odd, a woman just keeps saying, 'Long distance from Chicago..'"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Rev Angel Armando Perez, 46, in Woodburn, Oregon Reverend Charged With Molesting Boy, Chasing Him Down Street Wearing Only Underwear Angel Armando Perez, a 46-year-old Woodburn area priest, was jailed Sunday after he allegedly molested a 12-year-old boy, then chased him down the street wearing only his underwear. According to the Marion County Sheriff's Office, Perez was hosting a sleepover at his residence Monday when he allegedly stripped to his underwear and touched a 12-year-old boy's genitals. The victim immediately ran out of the house while Perez gave chase, still wearing nothing but his underwear. The boy found another adult a short distance away and explained that he was being chased and needed help. The witness, along with his sister, watched as Perez rounded the corner and stopped in his tracks when he encountered the two adults. "He was staring at us," stated the witness. "Then he stood there with his hands on his hips like, 'You're really not going to give him to me?'" Perez reportedly fled the scene when the two adults told him they were calling police. Investigators say the boy stated that Perez gave him a beer, which he drank about half of before falling asleep. He was awoke later that night to find Perez holding a camera in one hand and his penis in the other hand. That's when the boy fled the residence and ran down the street. Perez told police that he had drank too much at a prior community event. He admitted that he had sat down to watch a movie with the victim, but didn't remember what happened after that. Perez was booked into jail and charged with sexual abuse, abuse of a child in the display of sexually explicit conduct, furnishing alcohol to a minor and DUI.
Tech Support Pits: From: Gene Re: Problem using Logitech wireless keyboard Dear Webby, Webby, I have a problem that I thought that you could help me with. I have a Dell desktop with OEM XP installed. When I use the wireless keyboard that I just bought, it works perfectly along with the matching mouse except that when I try to start the machine, before I get to windows, I get a message that the keyboard is not functioning and to press F12 to enter setup (duh) . If I reconnect the wired keyboard it starts up normally and I can remove the wired keyboard then the wireless board works ok. I'm sure that it is in the BIOS but not sure what to do about it. I contacted the Taliban at Logitec and after a bunch of repetitive explaining, they said that they would get back to me, which of course they never did. Thank you, Gene Dear Gene That sounds like the usual pissing contest between Microsoft and Logitech. Try running the setup CD again, that came with the keyboard. Somewhere in the setup there should be an option to make that keyboard the default. If there is no Setup CD, try downloading a driver for XP. Keep in mind, that machine was shipped long before Logitech started building that series wireless keyboards. DELL machines usually work fine with Logitech mice and keyboards, and even with two keyboards attached. If you have a USB multiplier, plug the old wired keyboard into that and stash it behind the monitor. It will tell the computer, that there IS a keyboard attached. That will give it time to start up and see the wireless receiver, after Windows is running. I know it is silly, but with that particular keyboard you might have to do that. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Dust Cakes With Powdered Sugar Instead of Frosting When my mother used to have friends over in the evening she wanted to serve a snack (cake and coffee) but most of them were elderly and would turn down the cake because of the frosting. The problem was solved by using a round single layer cake. Buy 8-inch doilies, place a doily on top of the cake, and sprinkled it lightly with confectioner's sugar. Remove the doily and you have a lacy design on the cake without all of the icing.

"In retrospect, I admit it was unwise to try to gain access to my house via the cat flap," Gunther Burpus admitted to reporters in Bremen, Germany. "I suppose that the reason they're called cat flaps, rather than human flaps, is because they're too small for people, and perhaps I should have realized that." Burpus, a forty-one year old gardener from Bremen, was relating how he had become trapped in his own front door for two days, after losing his house keys. "I got my head and shoulders through the flap, but became trapped fast around the waist. At first, it all seemed rather amusing. I sang songs and told myself jokes. But then I wanted to go to the lavatory. I began shouting for help, but my head was in the hallway so my screams were muffled. After a few hours, a group of students approached me but, instead of helping, they removed my trousers and pants, painted my buttocks bright blue, and stuck a daffodil between my cheeks. Then they placed a sign next to me which said 'Germany resurgent, an essay in street art. Please give generously' and left me there." "People were passing by and, when I asked for help, they just said 'very good! Very clever!' and threw coins into my trousers. No one tried to free me. In fact, I only got free after two days because a dog started licking my private parts and an old woman complained to the police. They came and cut me out, but arrested me as soon as I was freed. Luckily they've now dropped the charges, and I collected over DM3,000 in my underpants, so the time wasn't entirely wasted."

O Bummer lies lies lies 

Terry anderson, a black los angeles talk radio host, went down a list of things Senator Obama has said that aren't exactly correct.

1.) Selma March Got Me Born -
NOT EXACTLY, your parents felt safe enough to have you in 1961 - Selma had no effect on your birth, as Selma was in 1965. (Google 'Obama Selma ' for his full March 4, 2007 speech and articles a bout its various untruths.) ! !

2.) Father Was A Goat Herder -
NOT EXACTLY, he was a privileged, well educated youth, who went on to work with the Kenyan Government.

3.) Father Was A Proud Freedom Fighter -
NOT EXACTLY, he was part of one of the most corrupt and violent governments Kenya has ever had.

4.) My Family Has Strong Ties To African Freedom -
NOT EXACTLY, your cousin Raila Odinga has created mass violence in attempting to overturn a legitimate election in 2007, in Kenya . It is the first widespread violence in decades. The current government is pro-American but Odinga wants to overthrow it and establish Muslim Sharia law. Your half-brother, Abongo Oba ma, is Odinga's follower. You interrupted your New Hampshire campaigning to speak to Odinga on the phone. Check out the following link for verification Of that....and for more.

Obama's cousin Odinga in Kenya ran for president and tried to get Sharia Muslim law in place there. When Odinga lost the elections, his followers have burned Christians' homes and then burned men, women and children alive in a Christian church where they took shelter... Obama SUPPORTED his cousin before the election process here started. Google Obama and Odinga and see what you get. No one wants to know the truth.

5.) My Grandmother Has Always Been A Christian -
NOT EXACTLY, she does her daily Salat prayers at 5am according to her own interviews. Not to mention, Christianity wouldn't allow her to have been one of 14 wives to1 man.

6.) My Name is African Swahili -
NOT EXACTLY, your name is Arabic and 'Baraka' (from which Barack came) means 'blessed' in that language. Hussein is also Arabic and so is Obama.

Barack Hussein Obama is not half black. He is the first Arab-American President, not the first black President. Barack Hussein Obama is 50% Caucasian from his mother's side and 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African Negro from his father's side.
While Barack Hussein Obama's father was from Kenya , his father's family was mainly Arabs.. Barack Hussein Obama's father was only 12.5% African Negro and 87.5% Arab (his father's birth certificate even states he's Arab, not African Negro).

7.) I Never Practiced Islam -
NOT EXACTLY, you practiced it daily at school, where you were registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years, until your wife made you change, so you could run for office.

8.) My School In Indonesia Was Christian -
NOT EXACTLY, you were registered as Muslim there and got in trouble in Koranic Studies for making faces (check your own book).


February 28, 2008. Kristoff from the New York Times: Mr. Obama
Recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it'll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as 'one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.' This is just one example of what Pamela is talking about when she says 'Obama's narrative is being altered, enhanced and manipulated to whitewash troubling facts.'

9.) I Was Fluent In Indonesian -
NOT EXACTLY, not one teacher says you could speak the language.

10.) Because I Lived In Indonesia , I Have More Foreign Experience -
NOT EXACTLY, you were there from the ages of 6 to 10, and couldn't even speak the language. What did you learn except how to study the Koran and watch cartoons?

11.) I Am Stronger On Foreign Affairs -
NOT EXACTLY, except for Africa (surprise) and the Middle East (bigger surprise); you have never been anywhere else on the planet and thus have NO experience with our closest allies.

12.) I Blame My Early Drug Use On Ethnic Confusion -
NOT EXACTLY, you were quite content in high school to be Barry Obama, no mention of Kenya and no mention of struggle to identify - your classmates said you were just fine

13.)An Ebony Article Moved Me To Run For Office -
NOT EXACTLY, Ebony has yet to find the article you mention in your book. It doesn't, and never did, exist.

14.) A Life Magazine Article Changed My Outlook On Life -
NOT EXACTLY, Life has yet to find the article you mention in your book. It doesn't, and never did, exist.

15.) I Won't Run On A National Ticket In '08 -
NOT EXACTLY, despite saying, live on TV, which you would not have enough experience by then, and you are all about having experience first.

16.) Voting 'Present' is Common In Illinois Senate -
NOT EXACTLY, they are common for YOU, but not many others have 130 NO VOTES.

17.) Oops, I Miss-voted -
NOT EXACTLY, only when caught by church groups and Democrats, did you beg to change your misvote.

18.) I Was A Professor Of Law -
NOT EXACTLY; you were a senior lecturer ON LEAVE.

19.) I Was A Constitutional Lawyer -
NOT EXACTLY, you were a senior lecturer ON LEAVE.

20.) Without Me, There Would Be No Ethics Bill -
NOT EXACTLY, you didn't write it, introduce it, change it or create it.

21.) The Ethics Bill Was Hard To Pass -
NOT EXACTLY, it took just 14 days from start to finish.

22.) I Wrote A Tough Nuclear Bill -
NOT EXACTLY, your bill was rejected by your own party for its pandering and lack of all regulation - mainly because of your Nuclear donor, Exelon, from which David Axelrod came.

23.) I Have Released My State Records -
NOT EXACTLY, state bills you sponsored or voted for have yet to be released, exposing all the special interests pork hidden within.

24.) I Took On The Asbestos Altgeld Gardens Mess -
NOT EXACTLY, you were part of a large group of people who remedied Altgeld Gardens . You failed to mention anyone else but yourself, in your books.

25.) My Economics Bill Will Help America -
NOT EXACTLY, your 111 economic policies were just combined into a proposal which lost 99-0, and even YOU voted against your own bill.

26.) I Have Been A Bold Leader In Illinois -
NOT EXACTLY, even your own supporters claim to have not seen BOLD action on your part.

27.) I Passed 26 Of My Own Bills In One Year -
NOT EXACTLY, they were not YOUR bills, but rather handed to you, after their creation by a fellow Senator, to assist you in a future bid for higher office.

28.) No One on my campaign contacted Canada about NAFTA -
NOT EXACTLY, the Canadian Government issued the names and a memo of the conversation your campaign had with them.

29.) I Am Tough On Terrorism -
NOT EXACTLY, you missed the Iran Resolution vote on terrorism and your good friend Ali Abunimah supports the destruction of Israel .

30.) I Want All Votes To Count -
NOT EXACTLY, you said let the delegates decide.

31.) I Want Americans To Decide -
NOT EXACTLY, you prefer caucuses that limit the vote, confuse the voters, force a public vote, and only operate during small windows of time.

32.) I passed 900 Bills in the State Senate -
NOT EXACTLY, you passed 26, most of which you didn't write yourself.

33.) I Believe In Fairness, Not Tactics -
NOT EXACTLY, you used tactics to eliminate Alice Palmer from running against you.

34.) I Don't Take PAC Money -
NOT EXACTLY, you take loads of it.

35.) I don't Have Lobbyists -
NOT EXACTLY, you have over 47 lobbyists, and counting.

36.) My Campaign Had Nothing To Do With The 1984 Ad -
NOT EXACTLY, your own campaign worker made the ad on his Apple in one afternoon.

37.) I Have Always Been Against Iraq -
NOT EXACTLY, you weren't in office to vote against it AND you have voted to fund it every single time.

38.) I Have Always Supported Universal Health Care -
NOT EXACTLY, your plan leaves us all to pay for the 15,000,000 who don't have to buy it.

39.) My uncle liberated Auschwitz concentration camp -
NOT EXACTLY, your mother had no brothers and the Russian army did the liberating.

So, who EXACTLY is this Obama guy and what is he trying to sell us?! Please get to work now...not enough of your loved ones and friends know about this fraud.

Does this guy ever tell the truth? NOT EXACTLY!!!!!!!

Early Printer's Ink Out alarm 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Saturday, August 18

It is funny how the media are portraying those silly Pussy
Riot bimbos as heroes fighting for free speech. If a punk
band had attempted the same stupid stunt in the 
Washngton Cathedral, or in one of the 36 mosques in 
Washington,  they would have been thrown in jail too.
And most likely beaten up in the process.

Just imagine a semi-musical punk band howling and screeching
in the major Washington mosque, beseeching Mohammed to
get rid of Obama!

Those bimbos did the exact equivalent.
Absolutely no class.

Putin used music during the election campaign. Putin is
definitely not a low class punk. He funded a flash mob in
Moscow, including training and coaching and costumes,
to perform "PUTIN on the Ritz".
It was very well done and a hit on youTube and the media.

After some prodding and rumor mongering, his opposition
was goaded into clamoring, that he had used Government 
money for it. Of course, the more they whined, the further
the news about "PUTIN on the Ritz" spread.
By election time, everybody in Russia was either grinning 
about it, or humming "PUTIN on the Ritz".

They did not understand what "PUTIN on the Ritz"
was about, but it is a neat, catchy tune, with a good rythm,
so that PUTIN fella must be OK.

The Flash Mob happening was Feb 26, the election was
March 4, and even the election monitors were humming the tune.

Contrary to what the US media tried to imply, Putin was elected
by a very clear margin. 

Amongst other things, he did use music, but he did not piss
off a lot of religious people, who had absolutely nothing to
do with the election.

By the way, Walter the Stonecarver of http;//stonecarver.com,
a subsciber since the early 90's and frequent contributor, is one
of the carvers, who worked on the Washington Cathedral. 
Walter does not go there for religious purposes, but I 
don't think he would approve of non-religious punks abusing 
the cathedral for political purposes.

 Have FUN!

"Unhappiness is not knowing what we want and killing ourselves to get it." --- Don Herold Man invented language to satisfy his deep need to complain. ---Lily Tomlin Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take; but by the moments that take our breath away! --- Socratex
One evening after dinner, Bob's five-year-old son noticed that his mother had gone out and he asked, "Where did mommy go?" In answer to his questions, he was told, "Mommy is at a Tupperware party." This explanation satisfied him for only a moment. Puzzled, he asked, "What's a Tupperware party, Dad?" Bob had always given his son honest answers, so he figured a simple explanation would be the best approach. "Well, son," he said, "at a Tupperware party, a bunch of ladies sit around and do a lot of screeching and yelling while they show plastic bowls to each other." He nodded, indicating that he understood this curious pastime. Then he burst into laughter. "Come on, Dad," he said. "What is it really?"
On beautiful deserted islands in the middle of nowhere, the following people are stranded, each group on separate islands: 2 Italian men and 1 Italian woman 2 German men and 1 German woman 2 Greek men and 1 Greek woman 2 English men and 1 English woman 2 Bulgarian men and 1 Bulgarian woman 2 Japanese men and 1 Japanese woman 2 Chinese men and 1 Chinese woman 2 American men and 1 American woman 2 Irish men and 1 Irish woman One month later, on these absolutely stunning deserted islands in the middle of nowhere, the following things have occurred: One Italian man killed the other Italian man for the Italian woman. The two German men have a strict weekly schedule of alternating visits with the German woman. The two Greek men are sleeping with each other and the Greek woman is cleaning and cooking for them. The two English men are waiting for someone to introduce them to the English woman. The two Bulgarian men took one long look at the endless ocean and another long look at the Bulgarian woman and started swimming. The two Japanese men have faxed Tokyo and are awaiting instructions. The two Chinese men have set up a pharmacy/liquor/store/ restaurant/laundry, and have got the woman pregnant in order to supply employees for their store. The two American men are contemplating the virtues of suicide, because the American woman keeps on complaining about her body, the true nature of feminism, how she can do everything they can do, the necessity of fulfillment, the equal division of household chores, how sand and palm trees make her look fat, how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and treated her nicer than they do, and how her relationship with her mother is improving, etc.. The two Irish men divided the island into north and south and set up a distillery. They do not remember if sex is in the picture because it gets sort of foggy after the first few liters of coconut whiskey. But they're satisfied because at least the English aren't having any fun.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Brooke Parent, 21, Portsmouth, NH Slow Learner - Jailed For Prostitution Just Ten Minutes After She Was Released From Jail On Two Prior Prostitution Charges Brooke Parent, a 21-year-old New Hampshire woman who was free on bail after a prostitution bust, was jailed two more times on Wednesday for the same charge. The third charge came just ten minutes after she was released from jail on the second prostitution charge. According to police, Parent was arrested August 2 during a 10-month long investigation that also resulted in the arrest of a clinical psychologist who allowed Parent to use his apartment for the alleged trysts. During her arrest, Parent told detectives that she had a special arrangement with Marino to provide "limited sex services" because she is pregnant. After her release, Parent was arrested on a second prostitution charge on Wednesday after she offered to perform a sex act on an undercover officer in exchange for cash. About ten minutes after she was released on the second charge she was arrested for prostitution a third time after she allegedly offered to sell sex to a different undercover officer. Parent now faces three charges of prostitution and a charge for violating the conditions of her bail. The psychologist, identified as 38-year-old Alexander Marino, was also charged with prostitution. He was released after posting $1,000 bond. An alleged john, 22-year-old John Parra, was also arrested after he leaped through a window while attempting to flee arrest during a police raid on Marino's apartment. Investigators say Parra had an "unfurled" condom in his hand when they took him into custody.
Tech Support Pits: From: Papa Hank Re: Printer Ink Out Alarm Dear Webby, Hi my best morning cheerer upper, good suggestion to "out of ink". Atlantic ink is great with fast shipping and terrific prices. Been using them for years. The ink lasts a long time. One thing the user should know is that when the low ink warning comes on, there is plenty of ink left and on my Canon. It quits printing when then cartridge is really empty. Papa Hank Dear Papa Hank The Ink Out light on printers is like the Low Gas light on cars. No panic, but time to get organized to get a refill. If you order from Atlantic Inkjet .com, you will have the new cartridges sitting there on the printer a week before the ink actually runs out. With Atlantic's Laser toner, when the toner for a color actually does run out, you usually get another day or two, if you take that color cartridge out and shake it a bit. You still have to refill it, but that extra day lets you plan for that. You don't have to stop in the middle of some urgent work, while somebody is standing there waiting for something. Refilling toner with their kit is really easy, and it even comes with a CD with instructions. However, the very first time you use a refill kit, it can be a bit scary and intimidating, until you look at the CD and see how simple it really is. So, for your very first refill budget 10 minutes. After that you can easily do it in two minutes. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Creative Sink Storage Ideas I have a tip for those of us that still like to do dishes by hand. I was tired of looking at the bottle of dish soap on my sink, so I decides to get a cute pickle dish with 3 sections at the dollar store and place my sink items I use every day in it. I also got a lemon squirt bottle for my dish soap. That way you don't waste as much and no big bottle at your sink. You can use ketchup/mustard any refillable smaller bottle. I know I could put it under my sink, but, with everyone using the sink, it's easier for us. I hope some one can use this idea!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Chadwick Lange, 43, New York, NY. Thieves speed off in running Maserati NEW YORK (UPI) -- Police in New York said car thieves made off with a Maserati while its owner was standing nearby, talking to a friend. Investigators said the car's owner, Chadwick Lange, 43, left the keys in the ignition and the engine running when he got out of the vehicle in Times Square to talk to a friend around 4:40 a.m. Sunday when two men approached him and asked if they could take pictures of the car, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday. However, after taking a couple of pictures, one of the men jumped into the car and sped off, with the other man following on foot. They said the car slowed down after a couple of blocks to allow the second man to get into the car. Police said they have yet to identify any suspects. They are still laughing too hard.

I was wondering, can I safely move all my icons onto the sawed off runt, and sort of use it like a remote control for running programs on the big monitor? Thanks Luanne Dear Luanne Yes, sure. That works fine. Use SMD (Save My Desktop) now and then, in case Windows loses it's marbles. With that you can restore the desktop to whichever way you had it the last time you saved it.

While looking in the archive for a specific joke, I came across this item from seven years ago: Things I have learned from watching the news on TV during Hurricane Katrina coverage the last couple of weeks: It's all Bush's fault. The hurricane only hit black family's property It's all Bush's fault. New Orleans was devastated and no other city was affected by the hurricane It's all Bush's fault. Mississippi is reported to have a tree blown down It's all Bush's fault. New Orleans has no white people It's all Bush's fault. The hurricane blew a limb off a tree in the yard of an Alabama resident It's all Bush's fault. When you are hungry after a hurricane, steal a big screen TV It's all Bush's fault. If the store that you are looting is out of your size shirts, set the stroeon fir, sothat you won't waste time on it again. It's all Bush's fault. The hurricane did 200 billion dollars in improvements to New Orleans: now the city is welfare, looter and gang free and they are in your city. It's all Bush's fault. White folks don't make good news stories It's all Bush's fault. Don't give thanks to the thousands that came to help rescue you, Instead bitch because the government hasn't given you a debit card yet It's all Bush's fault. Only black family members got separated in the hurricane rescue efforts It's all Bush's fault. Ignore warnings to evacuate and the smart folks will come get you and give you money for being stupid. It's all Bush's fault.

This is an actual conversation I over-heard while at lunch today. A young woman was talking with an older woman, apparently her mother. "I haven't slept in three days," she complained. "The baby is teething and he's up all night crying." "Why don't you just dip a finger into a thimble-full of Southern Comfort, and rub it on his gums? That will numb them up and put him right to sleep." answered mom. "I can't give the baby alcohol! Lord knows what that will do to him." "Well, it never hurt you any." The look on her face was priceless.

How to change icon size in Windows 7? 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, August 16

All the lawns for three blocks in all directions were 
speckled with leaves torn off trees by yesterday's hail.

 On my walk I realized that Thursday is bulk garbage pick-up.
People had all kinds of stuff piled by the street, anything 
from clock radios to king size mattresses. 

So I called Curt, a neighbor of Barb's, to give me a hand
lugging a bunch of old chainlink fencing to the street. 
Afterward I drove to the liquor stroe to get him a six-pack
for his help. 

On the way back we spotted a BBQ on the street,
in much better shape than my old one. It was too big to 
go into the small trunk on the LeBaron, so Curt sat in the
trunk and held the handles of the BBQ, while I slowly drove
home. We must have looked quite silly, but it worked out
just fine. Now I just have to save up $35 for a new propane
tank, or about the same for fittings to adapt it to natural 
gas.

 Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Kayla Walters-Merrian, 18, Lexington, S.C. "Booby Trap" - Charged With Luring Young Boys Into Woods, Sexually Assaulting Them Kayla Walters-Merrian, an 18-year-old South Carolina woman was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly used her breasts to lure a group of young boys into the woods where she sexually assaulted them. According to police, Walters-Merrian exposed her breasts to three boys (ages 11-12) to lure them into a wooded area near her home. Once the four of them were in the woods, Walters-Merrian lifted up her skirt and talked all three boys into performing sexual acts on her. The alleged sexual encounters took place on August 13 and 14. Police launched an investigation Tuesday night after the mother of a victim heard about the incident from another victim's sister. Walters-Merrian was booked into jail and charged with three counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
Tech Support Pits: From: Bob Re: Change icon size in Windows 7 Dear Webby, After one of those nuisance W7 bug fixes, that required a reboot, the size of my icons suddenly jumped to a much larger size, and there is no way to change the back. I am using the same 1600 x 1200 resolution as you are. Thanks for talking me into that 15 years ago! So, how do I civilize the icons? Bob Dear Bob It's a secret. Have you ever seen this cute little picture, that I painted many years ago? That secret trick works not just for browser zoom, but if you click onto an empty spot on the desktop first, it zooms the icons larger or smaller, depending on which way you crank the mouse scroll wheel. Feel fre to tell people where they can look up tricks like that. I need more subscribers! Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com tore Touch-up Paint in Film Canisters Save film canisters and use them to store small amounts of leftover paint for touch-ups. Label each one and store in a handy place. Instead of a label, you can also just paint a part of the film canister lid with the paint for quick reference. By duckie-do from Cortez, CO Film containers are probably impossible to find nowadays, however pill ontainers come in many sizes and are just as handy for paint and small screws and springs. For paint store them upside down to ensure an airtight seal. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.

The husband and wife go to a counselor after 15 years of marriage. The counselor asks them what the problem is and the wife goes into a tirade listing every problem they have ever had in the 15 years they've been married. She goes on and on and on. Finally, the counselor gets up, goes around the desk, embraces the woman and kisses her passionately. The woman shuts up and sits quietly in a daze. The counselor turns to the husband and says "That is what your wife needs at least three times a week. Can you do that?" The husband thinks for a moment and replies, "Well, I can get her here Monday and Wednesday, but Friday I golf. "

Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, August 15

Had some really noisy weather today:
First there ws a  horizontal rainstorm that picked up water 
from the streets and blew sheets of it along. When one of 
those hit the house it shuddered with a loud tud.

Then the wind slowed down to about 30 and the rin changed 
to hail. 

The hail stones were only 3/4 inch in size, but they sure
bounced! On the stret they bounced more than a foot,
on the lawn they bouced two feet. It ws really cute to watch.
By the time I figured i should try to take a picture of that,
and got the camera, it was too late. Still was awfully 
noisy outside, though! 

Then we got thunder and lightning. Quite a show!

At a little hole in the wall restaurant I saw a sign that read: "Women are not served here." And in small letters below that: "You have to bring your own."
One year, Johnny's family was having the "extended family" cookout at their home. One of the special treats that year was the lighting of the fireworks (Roman candles, bottle rockets, missile batteries, etc.) they had bought out of state. (because they are illegal in their state, of course!) Just before they were to arrive, a cousin calls, saying their neighbor's plans had just fallen through, and could they bring them along to the picnic - they even had extra food to bring. "Sure, the more the merrier!" Upon arrival and meeting of their cousin's neighbor, it is discovered that he's a police officer. The father turns as innocently as he can to Johnny, and whispers to him to grab the paper bag of fireworks sitting in the kitchen and hide them somewhere quickly. Johnny disappears, and the father changes the topic to food for the day. The family had brought some chicken to grill, so the father tells then the gas grill is all set to use out back - just turn on the gas and push the ignition button with the lid still closed. They head out the back, as Johnny comes back in through the front door. The father hurries to him and says "Whew, that was close! That man is a police officer, and he almost saw the fireworks. Did you hide them real well?" "Oh, yes! Nobody will ever think to look in the grill!" BOOOM!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Melody Lehigh, 26, in York, Pennsylvania Jailed After Crawling Into Neighbor's Bed To Avoid Arrest, Admitted To Being "Drunk And Crazy" Melody Lehigh, a 26-year-old Pennsylvania woman was jailed Friday after she allegedly crawled into a man's bed while attempting to elude police. According to police, officers were dispatched to an apartment complex after a fight between Lehigh and her boyfriend sparked a noise complaint. Officers arrived on the scene to find a trail of blood leading from the couple's apartment to a public restroom at the apartment complex. When officers opened the restroom door, they found Lehigh's intoxicated boyfriend inside. The boyfriend, who had blood on his clothing, told officers that Lehigh had crawled out of the bathroom through a window about 20 minutes prior to their arrival. A short time later, the officer heard caughing coming from a second-floor apartment balcony. When the officer looked to see where the noise was coming from, he spotted Lehigh hiding on another resident's balcony. Before the officer had a chance to respond, Lehigh allegedly head-butted the window and crawled into the resident's apartment. Officers went to the apartment and found Lehigh, who was attempting to crawl into bed with a man who lives inside the apartment. Lehigh told officers that she had been inside the apartment the entire time. As the officer attempted to handcuff Lehigh, she shouted expletives and repeatedly kicked him in the groin. The officer was eventually forced to use a stun gun to bring Lehigh into compliance. The officer noted in his report that Lehigh was covered in blood, had a bloody nose and was covered with black marks. Lehigh refused treatment stating that she "refused to be a victim" and that she received the injuries from "being drunk and crazy." Lehigh was booked into jail and charged with aggravated assault, burglary, resisting arrest, criminal trespass and criminal mischief. She was also taken into custody on three outstanding warrants for harassment. Before she became a drunk nuisance, she was quite cute:
Tech Support Pits: From: Carl Re: When to refill ink Dear Webby, If my ink cartridge runs out of one color, is it safe to continue printing with just the other colors ? Thanks Carl Dear Carl It's best to refill immediately. Pumping air and dried ink particles ruin a print head faster than anything else. If you don't have ink in that color, wrap the cartridge in a damp paper towel, put it into a ziplock bag, and use a different cartridge until you get more ink. If you go to AtlantIc inkjet .com and order a refill kit or ink in that color, it will be in your mailbox in a few days. Have FUN! DearWebby

>From Rev Garth After finishing an out-of-town errand, I discovered that my car wouldn't start because it was out of gas. A passer-by told me there was a service station a half mile away, so I took a gas can from the trunk and trudged the distance in the sweltering sun. The attendant filled my two gallon can, and I lugged it back and poured the gas into the tank. But when I tried to unlock the car door, it wouldn't open. Just then, I noticed an identical old car parked a short distance away. That was my car. I had filled a stranger's gas tank. Wearily I walked back to the station. The attendant suggested helpfully, "You know, instead of walking back and forth to fill the tank from the can, you could put a couple of gallons in the tank and then drive the car here."

An elderly gentlemen went in for his annual physical exam. The doctor said, "You're in incredible shape. How old are you again?" The man replied, "I am 78." The doctor exclaimed, "Wow, 78. How do you stay so healthy? You look like a 60 year old." The man explained, "Well, my wife and I made a pact when we got married that whenever she got mad she would go into the kitchen and cool off and I would go outside to settle down." "What does that have to do with it?" asked the doctor. The man sighed, "I've pretty much lived an outdoor lifestyle."

Thanks to Judy for alerting me to this one: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Na Cola Darcel Franklin, 31 in Whitehall, Pennsylvania She only wanted to kill him a little bit for just a short time. A Pennsylvania woman is accused of fatally stabbing her husband-to-be just hours before they were scheduled to be married. Na Cola Darcel Franklin, 31, is facing homicide charges in the death of her husband-to-be, Billy Rafael Brewster, 36, in the apartment they shared in Whitehall Township, according to the Whitehall Township Police Department. But, according to the Morning Call newspaper, Franklin did not realize her fiance was permanently dead, when she came before a judge that same day. The newspaper reported that Franklin stood mute, and seemingly stunned, when a judge told her she was being charged with a single count of homicide. "You got to check again!" Franklin cried out during the Saturday afternoon court hearing, begging the judge to check once more on Brewster's condition. "He was pronounced dead by the Lehigh County coroner earlier today," District Judge Donna Butler was quoted as saying. The newspaper said Franklin began wailing and rocking, and choked out the words: "I ... did ... not ... kill ... him ... on ... purpose," she said. "I want my family back. ... I want to go home." The judge said that wasn't one of Franklin's options: "You are not going home any time in the near future." It was not immediately clear what led up to the stabbing, which took place about 2:19 a.m. Saturday morning, according to a media statement released by police. The couple were supposed to be married at 10 a.m. Relatives staying with the couple told police that Brewster had announced plans to go out and grab some food for the crowd when an argument ensued, authorities said. Then, police said, Monique Kali of Illinois, who was among those visiting for the wedding, said she heard someone yell "Knife!". Kali told police she saw Franklin swinging a knife. Fearing that her husband might be injured, Kali told police, she tackled Franklin, who was then disarmed. In the meantime, a bleeding Brewster stumbled out onto the walkway outside the apartment and was found there when police arrived some time later. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Among his injuries: A stab wound to the heart, police said.
Tech Support Pits: From: Alex Re: Which is the best Mouse? Dear Webby, I need a new mouse and want to know which is the best one. Thanks Alex Dear Alex That depends on what you use it for. For office work like spreadsheets, web design, word processing, etc. I still recommend the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 2. It comes in wired and in wireless versions. If you need it mostly for browsing and light gaming, then the top mouse is the Logitech MX1000 Cordless Laser Mouse. It has a charging stand like a cordless phone and you won't have to keep swapping rechargeable batteries between the mouse and the charger. For art work, my preference is the wired Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 2. The cordless is by comparison a bit mushy. It's just as precise and unless you compare them side by side, you probably won't notice the difference in speed. However, you will get more work done in a day with the wired one. If fast reaction time is important, choose a wired mouse, not a cordless mouse. With the wired mouse on my main machine my reaction time averages 0.181 seconds, with the cordless mouse on my laptop I average 0.221 sec. Both mice are Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 2.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use an Empty Can as a Utensil Holder When Cooking Here is what I use to prevent spilled mess on my counter when I am cooking. I usually use more than one utensil when I am cooking but never know where to place them during the cooking time as I am still using them. Well, since I usually use some type of canned goods with all my meals, I came up with the following idea. I rinse the can that I used, then I use it as a utensil holder while I am cooking. Once I am done cooking, I place the utensils in the sink, rinse the can again and recycle it. So it's kinda like recycling it twice. The bonus is that it saves a mess to clean off my counter or a plate. By tomnsaby from Albuquerque, NM Instead of a lightweight can, that gets knocked over easily, I use a 1 Liter (quart) Pyrex measuring cup, 3/4 filled with water. I have never tipped or knocked that one over. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.

Jailed After Attempting To Rape And Murder Grandmother "Because He Was Tired Of Not Having A Girlfriend" Samuel Dye, a 20-Year-Old South Carolina bonehead was jailed Thursday after he beat his grandmother with a hammer, then sexually assaulted her, because he was upset about not having a girlfriend. According to police, Dye's grandmother told police that her grandson, showed up at her home at around 4 a.m. with a hammer. He then proceeded to complain about not having a girlfriend and told his grandmother that he was going to "get some." That's when Dye began striking his grandmother with his hammer. Investigators say the grandmother tried to stop him and suggested that they pray, however, Dye responded by exposing himself and then attempting to rape the woman. He then struck the woman in the head again with the hammer, knocking her to the ground. The attack was stopped when Dye's father heard his mother screaming and came to check on her. Dye was booked into the Chester County Detention Center and charged with attempted murder and attempted sexual contact.

He rushed to her aid and delivered a healthy baby boy. The farmer had nothing to weigh the baby with so the doctor used his fishing scales. The baby weighed 32 lb. 10 oz.

A motorist driving by a Texas ranch hit and killed a calf that was crossing the road. The driver went to the owner of the calf and explained what had happened. He then asked what the animal was worth. "Oh, about $200 today," said the rancher. "But in six years it would have been worth $900. So $900 is what I'm out." The motorist sat down and wrote out a check and handed it to the farmer. "Here," he said, "is the check for $900. It's post-dated six years from now."
A Missouri farmer passed away and left 17 mules to his three sons. The instructions left in the will said that the oldest boy was to get one-half, the second oldest one-third, and the youngest one-ninth. The three sons, recognizing the difficulty of dividing 17 mules into these fractions, began to argue. Their uncle heard about the argument, hitched up his mule and drove out to settle the matter. He added his mule to the 17, making 18. The oldest therefore got one-half, or nine, the second oldest got one-third, or six, and the youngest son got one-ninth, or two. Adding up 9, 6 and 2 equals 17. The uncle, having settled the argument, hitched up his mule and drove home.

Thanks to neil for alerting me to this one: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Stephanie Dillard,34, in Houston, Texas Middle School Teacher Charged With Having Sex With Many Students Bethany Appleton, a 28-year-old teacher at Shelbyville Middle School has been jailed after she allegedly had sex with multiple students after providing them with alcohol and marijuana. According to police, Appleton was taken into custody following a lengthy investigation through the Indiana Department of Child Services. Investigators say Appleton had sex with multiple students over the course of a year. In at least one instance, Appleton had sex with a student at her residence after drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana with the minor. The alleged sexual encounters took place between April 2011 and May 2012. Police have not yet released the age of the alleged victims and classified the investigation as ongoing. School officials have announced that Appleton no longer works for the district. Appleton was booked into jail and charged with 13 counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, child seduction, maintaining a common nuisance and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Officials say additional charges may be forthcoming as the investigation continues. Appleton does not always put on a sad-ass poor-little-me so hard done by show. Here is how she looks, when she is on the prowl: Would be iteresting to find out why none of the grown-ups would mess with her.
Tech Support Pits: From: Rick Re: How much RAM for Windows 7? Dear Webby My wife has been talked into getting Windows 7 by her weird women's libber friends. She wants me to upgrade her eight year old XP to Windows 7. How much RAM would I have to add? Rick Dear Rick Buy her a cheap Windows7 computer instead, and quietly adopt her old XP for a spare computer for yourself. Windows7 will never run very well on that old XP, but if you simply format it and re-instally XP, it will run as fast as it did when it was bought, and will run circles around Windows7 computers.

Thanks to neil for alerting me to this one: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Stephanie Dillard,34, in Houston, Texas Mom Left Kids in Crashed Car While She Got Naked, Ate Ice Cream and wrestled with cops. HOUSTON — A Texas mom faces child endangerment charges after police say she was found naked and eating ice cream inside a drug store after leaving her three children alone in a wrecked car. 34-year-old Stephanie Dillard faces one count of child endangerment after police say her car collided with a Houston bus on Friday afternoon. Dillard’s three children, ages 5, 12 and 16, were in the car at the time, and all three suffered minor injuries – including a large gash over the eye of the youngest child, police said. The record does not state whether the bus driver noticed the incident. Police say that after the wreck, Dillard got out the car and walked away, leaving the children alone at the scene. She then allegedly walked to a nearby CVS drug store and started taking off her clothes while she ate ice cream. Investigators said the naked Dillard put up a big fight when officers tried to arrest her. Dillard is being held in the Harris County Jail with bond set at $2,000. The children have been turned over to a grandmother. Police said they have not yet figured out what caused Dillard's strange behavior. Dillard's past criminal history includes a 2009 robbery charge, and most likely she is still on probation from that. A good guess is that the kids were fighting and she was yelling at them, when she hit the stopped bus, and figured getting naked and beating on some cops would get her away from her brats for a while.
Tech Support Pits: From: Len Re: Evil light on mouse Der Webby My mother called me about this "evil light" on her mouse. Apparently it comes on slowly and then fades off slowly, "like an evil heartbeat". She wonders if her computer is infected or if her mouse is possessed. It is a fairly new Microsoft 5 button mouse. Len Dear Len That slow pulsing light is the low battery indicator. The battery in that mouse is getting low and Microsoft is just hurryig that along a little bit, since you-know-who is a major shareholders in certain battery companies. Tell her to get an AA battery and keep it handy, because the battery in her mouse will stop working soon. Once she has replaced the battery, the "evil heartbeat light" will go out.

You open a can of soup and the lid falls in.

There's a dog in the neighborhood that barks at everything.

You can never put anything back in a box the way it came.

You slice your tongue licking an envelope.

Your tire gauge lets out half the air while you're trying to get a reading.

You wash a garment with a tissue in the pocket and your entire laundry comes out covered with lint.

The car behind you blasts its horn because you let a pedestrian finish crossing.

A piece of foil candy wrapper makes electrical contact with your filling.

You set the alarm on your digital clock for 7 p.m. Instead of 7 a.m.

People behind you on a super-market line dash ahead of you to a counter just opening up.

You can't look up the correct spelling of a word in the dictionary because
you don't know how to spell it.

You have to inform five different sales people in the same store that you're just browsing.

You had that pen in your hand only a second ago and now you can't find it.

You reach under the table to pick something off the floor and smash your head on the way up.

How to solve the CAPS LOCK problem 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, August 9

I harvested the remaining rhubarb today and cut it into short
slices for freezing. By mid August the oxalic acid in it gets 
a bit strong. It is healthy and said to be a strong anti-oxidant,
but I don't like it when it gets too strong. So I filled a dozen
.28 Liter (half pint) containers and jammed them into the 
freezer compartment of the fridge. A half pint is just right
for a nice desert or dumped over some pancakes.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Crystal Rusaw, 24, in New Port Richey, Florida Played While Boyfriend Was Away - Jailed For Leaving Kids Alone To Have Sex With Neighbor Crystal Rusaw, a 24-year-old New Port Richey woman was jailed Saturday after she allegedly left her 3 small children at home alone to have sex with a neighbor. The children (ages 10 months, 3 and 4) were later found crossing a busy highway without any supervision. According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, an investigation was launched when a witness spotted the children crossing a four-lane road around 5:00 a.m. The oldest child was carrying the youngest child across the road. The baby was wearing only a urine-soaked diaper. The witness pulled the children out of the road and called 911. Deputies tracked down the mother of the children, identified as Rusaw and questioned her about her whereabouts and why the children were left unattended. Rusaw stated that she had left her children at home alone so she could go have sex with a neighbor. She went on to say that she "accidentally" fell asleep. Police estimated that the children were alone for about 4 hours, in a residence where there are 32 registered sex offenders within a mile radius. Rusaw's boyfriend stated that he had been out of town for the week and didn't know about the incident until he returned. Rusaw was booked into jail and charged with child neglect. She was released after posting bond. The children are now in the care of relatives.
Tech Support Pits: From: Marlene Re: Caps Lock Der Webby I keep hitting CAPS LOCK accidentally, often! Finally my mom said to ask you what to do about it. I NEVER need the CAPS LOCK, so what is the solution? Marlene Dear Marlene There are some tricky software solutions, that may or may not work for you. An then there is my hardware solution. I pry the CAPS LOCK key off the keyboard with a tea spoon or screw driver, whichever is closer by, cut that small central pipe underneath with a sharp knife, so that the key can sit flat on the desk. The I grab a piece of Saran Wrap, lay it on the desk, mix some one or five minute epoxy and fill the upside down key with it. Just before it gets hard, I turn it upright onto the Saran Wrap. When I peel off the Saran Wrap, there is a large, smooth surface. Then I take that CAPS LOCK key and some Crazy Glue and go to Walmart or Staples or wherever I last saw a coin operated copy machine, and glue the CAPS LOCK key onto it. It is priceless to watch employees and customers stare at that CAPS LOCK key and try to figure out how it would work, but none of them dare push it. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Brillo Pad Last Longer To prevent a Brillo pad from getting rusty, rinse after use then shake out all of the excess water. Make sure no more water comes out when you shake it. I even hit the pad against the sink wall a few times. The pad will last so much longer! By FI1969 from Catonsville, MD Brillo pads are traditional steel wool pads and usually are the waste from boring the holes in gun barrels with step drills. Unless somebody really trashes their pots by always getting carried away with their email while they should be watching what is on the stove, regular stainless steel pads will work fine, and better cooks can even get away with the traditional yellow/green sponge/abrasive scouring pads. When buying the yellow/green scouring pads, avoid the ones that have the yellow part foam matress style polyethylene foam with uniform small holes in the foam. Always select the ones made from polyurethane foam that looks like natural sponge. Their sponge side cleans much better than the foam, and lasts a lot longer. Have FUN!

Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, August 8

Dianne's Bonus Link is fixed now.

"Curiosity", the newest Mars vehicle, seems to be operating
properly, as it should for what it cost. Unlike the 2004 rovers,
Curiosity is not depending on solar cells. It has a proper 
nuclear powerplant, just like the old SkyLab had. 

That means electricity, or the lack thereof, won't be an issue.
They can analyse rocks all they want, even vaporize them to
do proper spectrum analysis as good as any lab on earth.
And with the goofy arrangement of wheels and the light gravity,
nothing should stop them.

The only problem seems to be the same problem most of us face:
Connectivity. Once Curiosity has raised it's main antenna, the Mars
side will improve, but the Earth side will still be limited by 
atmosphere and not much better than an Air-Card cell modem.
Well, the portion of the transmission set aside for pictures 
for the public will be at that speed. The bulk of the transmissions 
will remain reserved for classified data from the instruments. 

The next rover will go up there together with a geostationary
satellite, also nuclear powered. The rover will just transmit to
that satellite, which will always be in the same spot, and 
which will be able to blast data without any atmospheric
slowdown straight to the International Space Station. 

With the acres of solar panels and forests of antennas the
space station can retransmit the data to dozens of earth
based antennas. Then we will get live color video, not just
tiny clips that take a long time to arrive. 

You'll have to be patient for a little while longer.
They have not found the Martians yet anyway.

 Have FUN!

Neither teenagers nor cats turn their heads when you call them by name. No matter what you do for them, it is not enough. Indeed, all humane efforts are barely adequate to compensate for the privilege of waiting on them hand and foot. You rarely see a cat walking outside of the house with an adult human being, and it can be safely said that no teenager in his or her right mind wants to be seen in public with his or her parents. Even if you tell jokes as well as Jay Leno, neither your cat nor your teen will ever crack a smile. No cat or teenager shares your taste in music. Cats and teenagers can lie on the living-room sofa for hours on end without moving, barely breathing. Cats have nine lives. Teenagers carry on as if they did. Cats and teenagers yawn in exactly the same manner, communicating that ultimate human ecstasy -- a sense of complete and utter boredom. Cats and teenagers do not improve anyone's furniture. Cats that are free to roam outside sometimes have been known to return in the middle of the night to deposit a dead animal in your bedroom. Teenagers are not above that sort of behavior.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Thanks to Judy for alerting me to this one: Mandy Ramsey, 35, Topless Florida Woman Leads Police On Sexiest Chase Ever A not very wise plan is to drive topless all the way to your house, speed along the way to attract a following of cops, and then to lead police on a chase through the neighborhood, get flustered and damage the pick-up's passenger side mirror against a tree, and try to hide the truck behind your mobile home. According to police, that's what Mandy Ramsey did near Ocala, Florida over the weekend, and she got to spend some time in jail on charges of fleeing and eluding police, but got quickly bailed out by her hubby. The 35-year-old was topless and speeding on County Road 318 in Marion County on Saturday, when an officer tried to pull her over to get a closer look at her features, and/or give her a speeding ticket. Apparently hit with the realization that getting pulled over while partially nude wasn't the best way to spend a Saturday, Ramsey fled and lost the cops. When they eventually caught Ramsey by going to the address listed on her l;icense plate registration, she admitted she didn't stop because she was topless and "on her way to surprise her husband," the Sun reports.

RON P Dear Ron If you don't dump those attachments, then they are land-mines on your hard drive, and can be triggered at any time, when somebody wonders what they are. With traditional email programs like Eudora, you right-click the email while still in the view / preview, and select "Delete Attachment". Eudora has had that option since about 1991 for sure. Most of the clones have copied that feature. If the email program you use, does not have that feature, check it's help. You NEED to know how to do hat! Otherwise, some day you are cleaning garbage from your hard drive, and you see something like Ron.zip or Mom.zip, and wonder what it is about. Bingo. One click and it is too late. You are owned and your computer is controlled by somebody far away. McAfee quarantines that stuff, basically hides it, so that you can't click on it, but why keep it cluttering up your hard drive? Best, of course, awww, here the old fart goes again.... is to use Mailwasher, nuke that crap while it is still on the server, and don't bother downloading it. If I got a dollar for every time somebody said: "Sheet! I should have listened and gotten that Mailwasher!" I would be eating meat. Have FUN! DearWebby

A woman goes to the local psychic in hopes of contacting her dearly departed grandmother. Shortly after the psychic stashed her rather exorbitant fee, her eyelids begin fluttering, her voice begins warbling, her hands float up above the table, and she begins moaning. Eventually, a coherent voice emanates, saying, "Granddaughter? Are you there?" The customer, wide-eyed and on the edge of her seat, responds, "Grandmother? Is that you?" "Yes granddaughter, it's me." "It's really, really you, grandmother?", the woman repeats. "Yes, it's really me, granddaughter." The woman looks puzzled, "You're sure it's you, grandmother?" "Yes, granddaughter, I'm sure it's me." The woman pauses a moment, "Grandmother, I have just one question for you." "Anything, my child." "Grandmother, when did you learn to speak English?"

Two girls were discussing pranks they had played on people in the past while waiting for a bus. After they boarded a crowded bus and one of them whispered to the other, "Watch me embarrass a man into giving me his seat."Pushing her way through the crowd, she turned all her charms upon a gentleman who looked like he might embarrass easily. "My dear Mr. Wilson," she gushed, "fancy meeting you on the bus. Am I glad to see you. Why, you're almost a stranger. My, but I'm tired." The sedate gentleman looked up at the girl. He had never seen her before, but he rose and said pleasantly, but by no means quietly: "Sit down, Mary, my girl. It isn't often I see you on washday. No wonder you're tired. Being pregnant probably isn't easy. By the way, don't deliver the wash until Thursday. My wife is going to the District Attorney's office to see whether she can post bail to get your boyfriend out of jail for a while."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Jessie Beam, 26 in Spartanburg, SC Wimp Attacked Grandmother, 67 A South Carolina woman returned home from the grocery store Saturday afternoon and told her grandson that she had purchased some chicken salad. However, Jesse Beam, 26, clims he misheard his 67-year-old grandmother. “Don’t call me chicken, again!” yelled Beam, according to a Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office report. Beam’s grandmother told deputies that she “attempted to explain to Jessie she was not calling him chicken,” but her grandson threw a bowl of food at her and shoved her to the ground as she sought to flee her Bethesda Drive residence. Apparently he also kicked her, while she was down. The woman sustained assorted cuts, contusions, and scratches, and possibly a broken nose during the attack. Beam, the wimp with the plucked eyebrows in the above mug shot, was arrested for assault and battery and booked into the Spartanburg County jail. He remains in custody in lieu of $2000 bond.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Plastic Lids Work as Small Dry Eraser Boards Margarine or butter container lids make great dry erase boards. You can use washable markers on them or dry erase markers on them. I cut the rim off of the top of the margarine container lid, made a hole with an icepick and then put a twistie tie through the hole and then clothes pinned it to the kitchen blinds. I'll probably cut the next one into a square and put it on the bedroom or front door for messages. I may or may not decorate them later.

Treat all disasters as if they were trivialities but never treat a triviality as if it were a disaster. --- Quentin Crisp "True luck consists not in holding the best of the cards at the table; luckiest is he who knows just when to rise and go home." --- An Texan, a Scot and a Californian were in a terrible car accident. They were all brought to the same emergency room, but all three of them died before they arrived. Just as they were about to put the toe tag on the Texan, he stirred and opened his eyes. Astonished, the doctors and nurses present asked him what happened. "Well," said the Texan, "I remember the crash, and then there was a beautiful light, and then the Canadian and the Scot and I were standing at the gates of heaven. St. Peter approached us and said that we were all too young to die, and that for a donation of $50, we could return to earth. So of course I pulled out my wallet and gave him the $50, and the next thing I knew I was back here." "That's amazing!" said one of the doctors, "But what happened to the other two?" "Last I saw them," replied the Texan, "the Scot was haggling over the price and the Californian was waiting for the government to pay for his." John Hay (1838 - 1905)
A young nun named Sister Margaret Mary, who works for a local home health agency, was making her rounds when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it, a gas station was just a block away. She walked to the station to borrow a can to start with and drive to the station for a fill up. The attendant regretfully told her the only gas can he owned had been loaned out, but if she would wait - it was sure to be back shortly. Since the nun was on the way to see a patient, she decided not to wait and so she walked back to the car. After looking through the car for something to fill with gas, she spotted a bed pan she was taking to the patient. Always resourceful, she carried it to the station, filled it with gasoline, and carried it back to her car. As she was pouring the gas into the tank, two men were watching from across the street. One turned to the other and said, "If it starts, I'll become a Catholic!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Rachelle Heenan, 34, Fort Worth, TX Married Teacher Charged With Having Ongoing Sexual Relationship With Student Rachelle Heenan, a 34-year-old forensics teacher at Hollenstein CTC was jailed Thursday after she allegedly had an ongoing sexual relationship with a student. According to Fort Worth police, an investigation was launched in May after rumors of a sexual relationship between Heenan and a student began circulating around the school. Investigators say the relationship began in February when Heenan and the student began exchanging text messages on a regular basis. "Ultimately the victim and the suspect met each other in the parking lot of a private gym in Fort Worth, held conversations inside the vehicle, and ultimately led to kissing," said Fort Worth police Sergeant Pedro Criado. Sometime in March, the couple met at a local hotel where they engaged in sexual intercourse for the first time. The pair continued the sexual relationship over the next several weeks, meeting at various hotels and Heenan's home. The relationship continued until May 18 - a few days before detectives began looking into the case. Heenan, a married mother with two children was employed at Hollenstein Career and Technology Center at the time. Although the student was 18 years old at the time of Heenan's arrest, police have not stated how old the student was during the course of the relationship. Heenan was booked into jail and charged with 2nd-degree improper relationship between educator and student. She was released after posting a $10,000 bond.
Tech Support Pits: From: Rick Re: Second Hard Drive Dear Webby I need a second hard drive for my machine. Does it have to be the same old FAT format as the old drive, or can I use NTFS ? Thanks Rick Dear Rick Forget drive formats. Simply get a USB eternal drive, the larger, the better. That way your new drive can outlive your computer and simply be plugged into a USB port on the next machine. If you want to re-use a drive from an old computer, then you have to figure out what format it uses, and get a USB external drive enclosure for that format. They usually all cost the same, but you definitely have to specify the fromat for those, because the internal plugs are different. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Garden Tags from Aluminum Roof Flashing You can make garden tags out of leftover aluminum roof flashing (the kind on a roll). I took a simple tag design that I drew, printed it out on heavy paper, and cut it out. I took that template and a sharpie and traced that design onto the flashing metal multiple times. I cut it out with regular scissors, then punched a small hole with a hole punch for a place to hang them. The garden tags can be decorated by embossing if you like, simply etch the name of the plant you are identifying with a sharp tool. By jason0475 from Collegeville, PA Keep in mind that Sharpies and Mark-Alls are NOT garden-proof and fade in a year or two. If you take a short length of 1/2" water pipe and cut it lengthwise about 1/4" with a hack saw and then cut one side in to your cut, it gives you a curved embossing tool. Making a straight embossing tools is easy. Any piece of metal with the same thickness as your curved tool will do. Then you can lay the aluminum or galvanized flashing onto a few layers of lether and punch in whatever names you need. A sharp rap with a small hammer is enough to produce a precise indentation. It is a good idea to write the word onto the tin with blackboard chalk or pencil beforehand. You don't need a complete letter set. All letters are built from straight or curved sections. You can use the tags with the writing just indented, or fill the indented areas with a contrasting color. Exterior laquer is good for many years, foundation tar is good for 50 years. Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Charles Snowden, 41 in Ormond beach, Florida Nearly Naked Man Charged With Breaking Into Woman's Home To Search For Balls Charles Snowden, a 41-year-old Florida man was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly broke into a woman's home dressed in ripped underwear and claimed he was searching for tennis balls. According to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, a woman called police around 7:16 a.m. after she woke up to find a stranger, later identified as Snowden, walking around her home. The victim told deputies that Snowden entered her home through a sliding glass door, walked into the kitchen and began rummaging through her silverware drawer. Investigators say the woman was afraid of alerting the man to her presence, so she waited until he left the home before contacting police. She told the dispatcher that he was walking down the street wearing only a ripped pair of boxer shorts. Deputies apprehended him a few minutes later. Snowden told police that he was visiting a friend in the area, and was walking around looking for tennis balls for his friend's dog. He also claimed that he was dressed in his underwear because they had become wet from a pressure washer earlier that day. He denied being inside the victim's residence. Officers believed he was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. Snowden was booked into the Volusia County Jail and charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling. He is being held in lieu of a $1,500 bond.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Tina Gianakon, 35 and Julian Call, 22 , Hutchinson, Kansas Kansas Couple Jailed After Masturbating Each Other Inside Wal-Mart Tina Gianakon, 35, and Julian Call, 22,were both jailed Sunday after they allegedly stole a tube of KY jelly from a Wal-Mart shelf, then began masturbating each other in plain sight of other customers. According to the Hutchinson Police Department, witnesses at a Hutchinson Wal-Mart called police after the couple reportedly grabbed some KY Jelly off the shelf, then began fondling each other in front of other customers. Neither suspect was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time. Call and Gianakon were booked into the Reno County Jail and charged with lewd an lascivious behavior and theft.

Years ago you made me a scary Macro to do that for thousands of URLs all at once, but somehow I lost that in the switch to the new computer. Today I was doing the weekly anti-virus scan with McAfee, while I had the usual mix of programs open and about two dozen tabs in Firefox. Yeah, I know, that is too much for W7, and it caused Firefox to lose it's marbles. Not a big deal, I got all the open tabs saved every ten minutes by SaveMyTabs, but that is in text files. That is kinda dumb, but not a big problem. I open one of those text files with Excel, and it sorts it nicely into columns. Now I need to turn the URLs into clickabel links, but preferably without that big, scary Macro. I know YOU can do it, so please tell me! Laura Dear Laura Put the cursor into a cell with a URL in it. Hit F2 and Enter That makes it a clickable link. If you got XP set up to jump the highlight one cell down when you hit ENTER like Quattro does by default, then you can start at the top of the column with the URLs and with F2 ENTER , F2 ENTER, F2 ENTER, etc. work your way down the column until all URLs are blue, underlined, clickable links. By the way, that works with email addresses too. F2 ENTER and when you hit that address, it opens your email program with that address already pasted into the TO field. Have FUN! DearWebby

Jim's doctor tells him he has only one day to live. When Jim goes home to share the bad news with his wife, she asks what he wants to do with the little bit of time he has left. "All I want," Jim tells his beloved wife, "is to spend my last few hours reliving our honeymoon." Which is exactly what they did. But after hours of blissful romance, she announces that she's tired and wants to go to sleep. "Oh, come on," Jim whispers in her ear. "Look," his wife snaps, "I've got to get up in the morning and go to work. You don't. So simmer down!"

An infantry brigade was training in the summer heat, learning methods to counter offensive tactics. That summer, the area had experienced an infestation of rattlesnakes. Officers and NCOs were given one magazine of live ammunition to counter this danger, as several men had already been bitten. So much ammunition was expended shooting, supposedly, at snakes that the post commander demanded that every officer and NCO who had shot at a snake present the dead snake as proof that the expenditure of rounds was justifiable. The next day, the post commander entered his office and spotted a shoe box on his desk. He opened it, revealing a sleepy and sluggish, but very live, rattlesnake. Inside the box were twenty expended cartridges, and a short note. The note said, "I missed!"

Now they are considering implanting some kind of pace maker, 
just in case. They admit that I don't really need it. 
It seems to me they need the installation fees more than I 
need the pace maker. We'll see.

On the way back I reflected on the difference between our
straight and wide roads over the rolling foothills, and the
curvy, narrow roads in Europe, where the roads go around
even small hills. On the narrow roads in Europe you wish your

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to James Crittenden, 36, Louisville, KY Wookie Caught Huffing 10 Cans Of Reddi-Wip Inside Kentucky Grocery Store James Crittenden, a 36-year-old Kentucky man was jailed Wednesday after he was allegedly caught huffing multiple cans of Reddi-wip inside a Kentucky grocery store. According to police, officers were dispatched to the Value Market grocery store in Louisville after receiving a report that a man was huffing several cans of Reddi-wip inside the store. Officers arrived on the scene to find Crittenden, who appeared unsteady on his feet and had "extremely" slurred speech. Officers also found 10 cans of Reddi-wip that had been opened and inhaled. Crittenden offered to pay for the opened cans at a cost of more than $26, however, he only had $7 in his pocket at the time. Crittenden told officers that he huffed the cans in an effort to stay awake and that huffing was his constitutional right. Crittenden had been banned from the store in the past for similar behavior. He was booked into jail and charged with shoplifting, public intoxication, disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing. ---------------- Once upon a time, when real whipped cream came in cans, that had Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) as a propellant, huffing the gas, that was still in the can when all the whipped cream was dispensed, "was a gas" indeed. If one was very careful with the whipped cream dispensing, you could indeed get a flushed face and a good laugh out of it. Usually, though, it was funnier for onlookers than for the huffer. Nitrous Oxide is available quite cheaply at welding gas suppliers, however, keep in mind, laughing gas is much funnier for spectators than for users. The dentist, who gives it to a patient, laughs a lot more than the patient. By the way, I doubt that a product like "Reddi-Whip" contains genuine laughing gas.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Amber Failla, 36, in California City, CA Teacher Charged With Having Ongoing Sexual Relationships With Three Students Amber Failla, a 36-year-old Math teacher at California City High School, was jailed Friday after she allegedly had ongoing sexual relationships with three of her students. According to California City Police, Failla was arrested after an investigation revealed that she had maintained ongoing sexual relationship with three students. Investigators have released few details about the case, other than to say that the students attended California High School and that the alleged relationships continued for more than a year. The charges would also seem to indicate that the alleged victims were under the age of 16. Failla, who also worked as a CCHS cheerleading asst. coach, was taken into custody after detectives obtained a search warrant and seized computers and cell phones from her home. She was booked into the Kern County Jail and charged with suspicion of oral copulation with minors under the age of 16 and sending explicit matter to minors.

During the historic first manned mission to Mars, two astronauts were charting the Martian surface. "Look at that," said one to the other, "how beautiful this alien landscape is, untouched by man." At that point, he was cut off, as he found his radio com- munications knocked out by unknown interference. They followed the source of the interference until they reached the rim of a crater. "Do you see what the source of that noise is?" asked the first astronaut. "I don't know," said the second, "but it might be coming from that Tim Hortons donut shop behind you."

Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, Aug 1

The Saskatoon berries are getting ripe gradually. It is a
good thing they ripen over a stretch of a few weeks and not
all of a sudden. The cold and wet spring produced Billions
of them, well, maybe not Billions, but a huge number of them.

The raspberries are ripening nicely too. The last few days I 
got one of the cute little containers for muffin papers filled
each day, plus of course a fair bit of snacking while I pick
them. Those muffin paper containers are just perfect for one
festive pancake topping.

I decided to do some mowing after sunset, but before I was 
finished, it got too cold for comfort. There was an icy blast 
coming down from the glaciers and rather than put a jacket
and a woollen cap on, I decided to postpone the rest of the 
mowing. 

Because of the summer heat and lack of rain after the 
middle of July the lawns stop growing anyway and slowly turn
brown, except for those of new residents, who have not seen
their water bills yet, nd who cheerfully water their lawns.

The town has plenty of water, and because the water table is 
only a few feet down, pumping is cheap. However, they use
the water meters to generate big income, so that they can
employ more relatives.

So most of the permanent residents simply don't water lawns.

We usually get some rain again in late September.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Lowell Turpin, 40, in Clinton, Tennessee Romney Photo Spurs Domestic Abuse Incident JULY 31--Suspicious that his live-in girlfriend was planning an affair, a Tennessee man confronted the woman after spotting a photo of an unknown guy on her Facebook page, according to a police report. Lowell Turpin, 40, “angrily demanded to know who the male was,” reported Anderson County Sheriff’s Department investigators. Crystal Gray, 38, “replied that it was a picture of Mitt Romney.” Despite being informed that the man on Gray’s wall was the Republican presidential candidate (and not some hunky, severely conservative sidepiece), Turpin apparently was not placated. Gray said that he “became upset because she was attempting to communicate with friends through her Facebook account.” In a subsequent tussle over the laptop, Gray’s hand was injured as she unsuccessfully tried to stop Turpin form smashing the computer against the wall. Gray told deputies that Turpin, pictured in the above mug shot, also punched her in the face during the encounter. While denying that he assaulted Gray, the 310-pound Turpin gave probers “multiple contradictory accounts of the struggle over the laptop.” Turpin was charged with domestic assault in connection with the July 22 incident at the couple’s Clinton residence. Turpin remains locked up in the Anderson County jail in lieu of $1000 bond.
Tech Support Pits: From: Eileen Re: PDF file sizes Dear Webby We write our invoices in PDF format. Yes, I know, that is stupid and klutzy and,.. don't get me going on that, or I'll never stop! There is no reason for it, it's policy. Anyway, instead of generating them automatically in compact HTML format, they want me to shrink the file sizes of the PDF files. Making self-extrating zip files of them was a total failure. They get blocked by even the most primitive spam controls and anti virus programs. Can the PDF invoices be shrunk somehow, and if yes, how do I do that ? Eileen Dear Eileen I bet I could rant about PDF files as long as you can ! They are good for e-books, and not much else. You, or your local "Friends of PDF invoices", probably figured that clients would waste paper and print the invoices instead of just keeping the files that you email them, and set the PDF output for "printable". That provides nice printed color pictures, but is a total waste of file size for invoices. Reduce the logo to two or 16 color black and white, and set the output to "viewable only", and "Black/White" if your program allows that. That way the file will be saved at 72 dots per inch, insted of 300 dots per inch. That reduces the file size to a quarter or even less. It still prints quite nicely and legibly, more than good enough for invoices. We have used HTML invoices for over twenty years now, with passworded on-line folders for each client. They can step through them all the way back to their first one, and view or print any of them that they want, whenever they want, without ever having to dig through file cabinets. Because they are HTML, they can copy paste from them, or import them into spreadsheets like Quattro, Lotus or Excel. With PDF they couldn't do any of that, because PDF is just a dead picture and you can't copy numbers or text off it.. Have FUN! DearWebby

Having just completed my training as the hospital's switch- board operator, I was reasonably confident that I knew all the codes for emergencies: Code Blue for cardiac arrest, Code Red for fire, etc. My first night on the job alone, however, a nurse phoned and asked me to page a "Code Brown, Room 214." I had no idea what that was. I called the page, then searched frantically through my emergency manual, but I couldn't find any description of it anywhere. Stumped, I finally called the nurse back and asked her about it. "Relax," laughed the nurse. "Code Brown is what we page when a patient is discharged and leaves behind an unfinished box of chocolates!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Adam barisa, 19 and Michael Russo, 19 in Boca Raton, FL Scooter suspect arrested for robbing senior sisters The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office on Monday arrested and charged a Boca Raton man with a high-profile mugging of two elderly sisters. Adam Bardisa, arrested on his 19th birthday, was the man seen in surveillance pictures riding a Razor scooter at the Publix shopping center at 9886 Glades Road, west of Boca Raton, detectives said. He was charged strong-arm robbery and aggravated battery on persons over 65. The getaway driver sought in the Boca Raton mugging was nabbed this Thursday after cops executed a search warrant on his accomplice's cell phone, police said. Among the gems of data unearthed by investigators on accused mugger Adam Bardisa's cell phone were texts to his alleged driver Michael Nicholas Russo, 19. In them, Bardisa, also 19, talks of his own mom seeing surveillance footage on the TV news of him robbing the two victims, who were 84 and 96 years old. "Yo how bout my mom just saw me on the news on a scooter robbing 2 old ladies and there opening an investigation.. .Bro wtf!", read the text, sent a week after the robbery. Russo's response was instructive. "Yo you were guna be going to newyork very soon n----- u gota stay far away from police bruh and another thin if either of us get arrested don't say s--- bout me and I Wont say s--- bout u either and delete all those texts that have anything to with it rite now." "Already did," Bardisa replied. Well, the cops know how to UN-delete. For robbing seniors they should be getting free room and board for a long time, even in Florida.
Tech Support Pits: From: Lani Re: Get rid of duplicate files Dear Webby I have tried a number of programs to get rid of duplicates. It seems, the more expensive they are, the less they do. Some of my relatives use Incredimail, and slobber those semi- cutesy little animations onto the bottom of their mails, because they ar too cheap to use the paid version, but still want to be cutesy. Naturally, all those little animations and icons have different file names each time, which makes getting rid of them a lot harder. I also have different versions of pictures, sometimes in different folders. Somebody sends me a picture, or a link, and I save it to wherever my current Collector's bin is, because I am not sure whether I already have that picture. How do YOU get rid of duplicate files? Dear Lani The Incredimail animations and icons are probably in your email's Embedded or Attached folder. Browse into it with a graphics program like PSP, set to sort by size. All that crap will be near the top, because thankfully those icons and animations are small. Click on the first one, hold down SHIFT, and scroll down a mile or two until you get to pictures, that are worth keeping. CTRL DEL will dump the thousands of nuisance items, that you have highlighted. Also check at the opposite end. Chances are you have some ridiculously huge files, that are not really worth keeping. The first trick will free up available fiel handles and speed up Windows, the second trick will free up hard drive space and make defragging easier and faster. For the third trick sort the pictures by name, and just do a fast scroll. Whenever you come across stuff like BobGolfing.jpg, BobGolfing1.jpg, BobGolfing2.jpg etc. the same picture again and again, most likely from a snazzy signature block, they will be easy to spot. Highlight abd dump. If you have multiple "Keepers" locations, you just have to combine them. You can separate them by date later, IF you want. So CTRL drag all the pictures from KEEPERS-1995 to KEEPERS2012. Whenever there are duplicate file names, Windows will stop and ask you if you want to overwrite. Just tell it YES, Overwrite all. If you stop and look at the pictrues each time there is a duplicate file name, you will be at it for years. So just overwrite. Otherwise the copying will stall. Then do the same with the keepers from 1996, 1997 and so on. Once you have them all in KEEPERS2012, use the tricks you practised in the email folders. You still have the original folders, since you used CTRL-Drag (copy). You can zip those folders up or burn them onto a DVD. Have FUN! DearWebby

>From Edna Dear Webby, can you please try to find that old bricklayer's accident report again? You haven't told that one for five years at least, and I can't find it any more. Thanks Edna No Problem, Edna. Here it is: I am writing in response to your request for additional information. In block number 3 in the Accident Report Form I put "Lost Presence-of-Mind" as the cause of my accident. You asked in your letter that I should explain more fully, and I trust the following details will be sufficient. I am a bricklayer, by trade. On the day of the accident I was working alone on the roof of a new 6 story building. When I completed my work, I discovered I had about 500 pounds of bricks left over. Rather than carry them down by hand, I decided to lower them down in a barrel, using a pully, which fortunately was attached to the building at the 6th floor. Securing the rope at ground level, I went up to the roof, swung the barrel out, and loaded the bricks into it. Then I went to the ground floor, untied the rope, holding it tightly to ensure a slow decent of the 500 pounds of bricks. You will note in block number 3 of the Accident Reporting Form, that I weigh 145 pounds. Due to my surprise at being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence-of-mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a high rate up the side of the building. In the vicinity of the 3rd floor, I met the barrel coming down--this explains the fractured skull and broken collar bone. Slowed, only so slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stopping until the fingers of my hand were 2 knuckles deep into the pully. Fortunately, by this time I had regained my presence-of-mind, and was able to hold tightly to the rope inspite of my increasing pain. At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the ground and the bottem fell out of the barrel. Devoid of the weight of the bricks, the barrel now weighed approximately 50 pounds. I refer you again to my weight in block number 3, and as you might imagine--I began a rapid decent down the side of the building. In the vicinity of the 3rd floor, yes, I met the barrel coming up, this accounts for the 2 fractured ankles, and the lacerations on my legs and lower body. The encounter with the barrel slowed me enough to lessen my injuries when I fell onto the pile of bricks, and fortunately, only 3 vertebrae were cracked. I am sorry to report, however, that as I lay there on the pile of bricks, in pain, unable to stand, and watching the empty barrel 6 stories above me, I again lost my presence-of-mind, and let go of the rope. The empty barrel weighed more than the rope--so it came down on me and broke both my legs. I trust I have furnished you the information you require as to how this accident occurred

On a Kansas City street, where the speed is limited to 30 mph the police stop a driver. "Not only have you been driving too fast, you've been passing cars where it is not allowed.

Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to-be a lantern and said, "Here. You hold this high so I can see what I am doing!" Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world. "Whoa there", said the doctor, "Don't be in such a rush to put that lantern down. I think there's another one coming." Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a baby girl. "Hold that lantern up, don't set it down, there's another one!" said the doctor. Within a few minutes he had delivered a third baby. "No, don't be in a hurry to put down that lantern, it seems there's yet another onecoming!" cried the doctor. The redneck scratched his head in bewilderment, and asked the doctor ... "You reckon it might be the light that's attractin' 'em?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Leslie Brown,, 24, in Louisville, Kentucky Charged With Stripping Off Bikini Bottoms, Scaring Children At Public Pool Leslie Brown Leslie Brown, a 24-year-old Louisville woman was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly stripped off her swimsuit bottoms and jumped into a public pool with children. According to Louisville Metro Police, officers were dispatched at around 7 p.m. after receiving a report that a naked woman was scaring children at a public pool. When officers arrived on the scene, a lifeguard told them that Brown had removed her bikini bottoms and jumped into a pool with children. She then allegedly began yelling at and frightening the children. When officers questioned Brown, she smelled of alcohol and was unsteady on her feet. She admitted that she had consumed "5 shots" before getting into the pool. Brown was booked into jail and charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place and disorderly conduct. The picture is a stock glamor shot of her, and not necessarily recent.
Tech Support Pits: From: Brian Re: Light / Flash placement Dear Webby I was picked (on) to take the volunteer award pictures. I remember that you said to avoid flash if at all possible, but I don't remember what you said about where to place lights. The overhead lights are pretty good and I have room to place hat racks with quartz construction lights on both sides of me. What do you suggest? Brian Dear Brian Put all lights to one side of you. Otherwise you kill contrast. An outstretched arms length or a bit more distance is best. The height of the lights should be a hands width higher than their heads for young people, and about waist high for older people. Low lighting makes double-chins disappear and is generally more flattering to older people. That goes just for the lights, not the camera. Keep the camera hed high. Have FUN! DearWebby

Do you remember Deeli ?
Once upon a time, long, long ago, when I was still young and
whatever, Deeli used to write the Kudos column and for a while
even found the material for the Boneheads Awards.

Got this email from her:
ThriftyFun just launched/switched over to beta version these 
past few days without making sure 'all' glitches were worked 
out first ... Can't even currently leave a comment half the 
time for a contest submission ... Guess they like to punish 
themselves and their readers because they didn't learn to wait 
and be certain ... Example: a new format in April of 2011 that 
took months to work out the bugs and for which they 
permanently lost dozens of (now formerly) regular staunch 
ThriftyFun members because it was no longer 'thrifty' time 
wise nor 'fun' at all - LOL  I almost left then too but really 
need the extra income I receive winning contests ...
Huggers,

Dear Webby, do you still have that "Chili Tasting Report"? I would love to see it again. Barb Here it is, an annual favorite: *Note: Please take time to read this slowly. If you pay attention to the first two judges, the reaction of the third judge is even better! For those of you who have lived in Texas, you know how true this is. They actually have a Chili Cook-off about the time the Rodeo comes to town. It takes up a major portion of the parking lot at the Astrodome. The notes are from an inexperienced Chili taster named Frank, who was visiting Texas from the East Coast: Frank: "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The Judge #3 called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking for directions to the Budweiser truck, when the call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted." Here are the scorecards from the event: Chili # 1 (Mike's Maniac Mobster Monster Chili) Judge # 1 -- A little too heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick. Judge # 2 -- Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild. Judge # 3 -- (Frank) Holy shit, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy. Chili # 2 (Arthur's Afterburner Chili) Judge # 1 -- Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight jalapeno tang. Judge # 2 -- Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously. Judge # 3 -- Keep this out of the reach of children. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face. Chili # 3 (Fred's Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili) Judge # 1 -- Excellent firehouse chili. Great kick. Needs more beans. Judge # 2 -- A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers. Judge # 3 -- Call the EPA. I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now. Get me more beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back, now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I'm getting shit-faced from all of the beer! Chili # 4 (Bubba's Black Magic) Judge # 1 -- Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing. Judge # 2 -- Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili. Judge # 3 -- I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Is it possible to burn out taste buds? Sally, the barmaid was standing behind me with fresh refills. That 300-lb bitch is starting to look HOT... just like this nuclear waste I'm eating! Is chili an aphrodisiac? Chili # 5 (Linda's Legal Lip Remover) Judge # 1 -- Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive. Judge # 2 -- Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement. Judge # 3 -- My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off. It really pisses me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming. Screw those rednecks. Chili # 6 (Vera's Very Vegetarian Variety) Judge # 1 -- Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spices and peppers. Judge # 2 -- The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb. Judge #3-- I shit myself when I farted and I'm worried it will eat through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except that Sally. She must be kinkier than I thought. Can't feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my ass with a snow cone. Chili # 7 (Susan's Screaming Sensation Chili) Judge # 1 -- A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers. Judge # 2 -- Ho hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. I should take note that I am worried about Judge #3. He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is cursing uncontrollably. Judge # 3 -- You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn't feel a thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava-like shit to match my shirt. At least during the autopsy, they'll know what killed me. I've decided to stop breathing, it's too painful. Screw it; I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach. Chili # 8 (Tommy's Toe-Nail Curling Chili) Judge # 1 -- The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence. Judge # 2 -- This final entry is a good, balanced chili. Neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge # 3 passed out, fell over and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself. Not sure if he's going to make it. Poor dude, wonder how he'd have reacted to really hot chili.

Tech Support Pits: From: Roberta Re: Is eBay safe? Dear Webby I am fairly new to the Internet and have some questions about buying stuff from eBay. Have you ever bought anything from there? How safe is it? Roberta Dear Roberta Yes, I have bought many things via ebay, from software to electronics. I have always been happy with my purchases. It's quite safe to buy stuff via ebay. They are a huge company and can't afford to let any crooks giving them a bad name. If somebody tries something crooked, they jump on them with both feet. Here are some tricks to make your shopping there easier: 1) Get a PayPal account and an ebay account. 2) If you want a certain item, check with pricegrabber.com to see how much it is in the stores. 3) Decide how much you are willing to budget for that item. 4) Put that amount into your Automatic Maximum Bid, but leave the automatic bidding turned off. 5) Bid a small amount to get into the action. 6) Watch the bidding but just quietly observe until a few minutes before closing of that item. Then turn the automatic bidding on. It will top all other bids with the incremental amount that you have chosen, but stay within your set maximum amount. As long as you do #2 and #4, you won't get carried away with auction fever and spend too much. Always pay for what you won immediately. Most sellers will reciprocate and ship just as promptly.

After deciding that their frail, elderly mother can no longer live alone, a family brings her to a nursing home, hoping she'll be well cared for. The next morning, the nurses bathe the old woman, feed her a tasty breakfast, and sit her in a chair at a window overlooking a lovely flower garden. She seems fine, but after a while she slowly starts to lean over sideways in her chair. Two attentive nurses immediately rush up to catch her and straighten her up. Again she seems fine, but after a while she starts to tilt to the other side. The nurses rush back and once more bring her back upright. This goes on all morning. Later the family arrives to see how the old woman is adjusting to her new home. "So Ma, how is it here? Are they treating you all right?" they ask. "It's pretty nice," she replies. "Except they won't let you fart."

Carol asked me to explain why I encourage people to wear a 
bit of red on Fridays.

That goes back to the fields of Flanders in the first World War.
That was a traditional war, with each side dug in in trenches,
shooting and shelling and bombing the other side, but pretty
well leaving the villages and towns alone. The soldiers were 
killing each other to fight for rights for the civilians.

Canadian Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, who had enlisted as
a soldier (gunnery officer) instead of with the medical corps, 
noticed after burying a friend, that red poppies sprang up within
days on, and around fresh graves.

That inspired him to write the Flanders Fields poem:

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
      Between the crosses, row on row,
   That mark our place; and in the sky
   The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
   Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
         In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
   The torch; be yours to hold it high.
   If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
         In Flanders fields.

Not long after WWI the veterans started using the red poppy
to raise funds for support for disabled or otherwise 
unfortunate veterans. In many countries the veterans
even produced lapel poppies for fundraising.

When Canadian troops went to Afghanistan and initially
suffered heavy losses, probably because they were the most
eager and fanatical troops, the "Home Front" went all out
with moral support. Part of that was opening a Tim Hortons 
in the Kandahar, Afghanistan base, and another part was
wearing a bit of red on Fridays.

That concept spread to the US rather sporadically. In some 
areas people are enthusiastic about showing support for
the troops, in others they aren't because they have been
told that it is Bush's war and the soldiers should not have
gone where somebody ordered them to go to.

It is unfortunate, that those people have their mind made
up for them and resent being shown facts or reality. 
Soldiers have not been ordered to go home after the last 
election, and they are still getting wounded or killed.
And THAT is why I wear a red shirt on Fridays, not because
of whoever might be in the White House.

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Barbara Mott Bordelon, 52, in Lufkin, Texas Jailed After Sending Herself Harassing Messages Barbara Mott Bordelon, a 52-year-old Lufkin woman was jailed Thursday after she allegedly sent harassing messages to herself using a cell phone, then reported the harassment to police. According to Lufkin Police, Bordelon reportedly bought a prepaid cell phone, using the name of another woman. She then sent threatening text messages to her regular phone, using the prepaid cell phone. Investigators say Bordelon contacted police on July 9th and claimed that she was being harassed by another woman. She showed officers a message from the would-be harasser that threatened to harm her and her boyfriend if she didn't convince officers to stop an investigation. An investigation revealed, however, that Bordelon purchased the prepaid cell phone using a false identity and used both phones to create the illusion that she was being harassed and threatened. Bordelon was unable to explain why she acted in such manner. She was booked into the Angelina County Jail and charged with two counts of tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, and one count of fraudulent use of identifying information, a state felony. She is currently being held in lieu of a $95,000 bond.

>From Frank: When my wife had to rush to the hospital unexpectedly, she asked me to bring her a few items from home. One item on her list was "comfortable underwear." Worried I'd make the wrong choice, I asked, "How will I know which ones to pick?" "Hold them up and imagine them on me," she answered. "If you smile, put them back."

US Government Pipe Specifications 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 sizes anywhere along 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 500 ft (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 (3.2 km) in length must have the words "very 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 or a very long pipe. 8. All pipe over 6" (152 mm) 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 elbow, 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.

One cold and rainy day, a French tourist in Scotland decided to find out if the natives were as tight as he had heard. He stopped at a farm cottage, told the farmer's wife he was freezing to death, and was invited to come in and warm himself at the hearth. Once inside the house, he complained of being thirsty. The woman handed him an enormous white crockery mug filled with milk. After taking a big swig, the guest exclaimed, "This is sweet and fresh ... you are most generous!" She replied modestly, "It's nothing. My family wouldn't drink that milk because we found a dead rat in it." Sick to his stomach, the Frenchman clapped both hands over his mouth, allowing the huge mug to fall to the floor and shatter on the stone floor. The Scotswoman grabbed her broom, raised it high in the air, brought it down on the visitor's head, and hollered, "Get out, you ungrateful pig! I take you in my home, I let you share my fire, I give you milk to drink ... and now you repay my kindness by breaking the children's potty chair!"
A champion jockey is about to enter an important race on a new horse. The horse's trainer meets him before the race and says, "All you have to remember with this horse is that every time you approach a jump, you have to shout, 'ALLLLEEE OOOP!' really loudly in the horse's ear. Providing you do that, you'll be fine." The jockey thinks the trainer is mad but promises to shout the command. The race begins and they approach the first hurdle. The jockey ignores the trainer's ridiculous advice and the horse crashes straight through the center of the jump. They carry on and approach the second hurdle. The jockey, somewhat embarrassed, whispers 'Aleeee ooop' in the horse's ear. The same thing happens--the horse crashes straight through the center of the jump. At the third hurdle, the jockey thinks, "It's no good, I'll have to do it," and yells, "ALLLEEE OOOP!" really loudly. Sure enough, the horse sails over the jump with no problems. This continues for the rest of the race, but due to the earlier problems the horse only finishes third. The trainer is fuming and asks the jockey what went wrong. The jockey replies, "Nothing is wrong with me - it's this horse. What is he - deaf or something?" The trainer replies, "Deaf?? DEAF?? He's not deaf-- he's BLIND!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Beth Williams, Christina Haidle in Joplin, Missouri Charged With Starving 3-Year-Old Daughter, Child Weighed Just 12 Pounds! Beth Williams, 26, and her "roommate" Christina Haidle, 27 were jailed after Williams's unresponsive 3-year-old daughter arrived at a local emergency room weighing just 12 pounds. According to Jasper County Police, officers were called after Williams took her 3-year-old daughter to Joplin Hospital and the girl appeared to be suffering from abuse. The toddler was unresponsive when she arrived, and only weighed 12 pounds. Her blood sugar level was zero, her body temperature was too low to register, and her pulse was so faint CPR had to be performed to save her life. Doctors determined that the child was suffering from severe malnutrition, and critical care was needed to prevent dehydration, sepsis, circulatory failure, shock, and respiratory failure, all of which are fatal. She was flown to Mercy Hospital in Springfield where she received further treatment. Investigators say during the child's first four days of hospitalization, she gained three pounds, making it obvious that she had been nutritionally deprived. She was placed with a foster family after being released from the hospital, and gained two more pounds in less than a week. Williams and Haidle, who admitted to being the child's Secondary Care Provider, were both apprehended. "Secondary Care Provider" is usually a common law or same sex spouse, who signed to share and supplement responsibilities with one side in a custoy dispute. Williams and Haidle were booked into jail and charged with felony child endangerment. They probably will not be allowed to share beds in jail. Maybe that is why the 'mother" got such a pout on? Bond has been set at $500,000 each.

An old Wild West fort is about to be attacked. The wily old General sends for his trusty Indian Scout. "You must use all your thirty years of skill in trying to estimate the sort of army we are up against here." The trusty Indian Scout laid down and put his ear to the ground. "Heap large war party," he says, "maybe three hundred braves, four chiefs, two on black stallions, two on white stallions. All have war paint. Many many guns. Medicine man also with them." "Good grief!" exclaims the General, "you can tell all of that just by listening to the ground?" "No, Chubby," replied the Indian, "I can see under the gate."

While searching the archive for a certain picture I cam across this story from Dianne: Thanks to Dianne, who used to have a trucking company for this story: Truck driving in 1962 Back about 1962 when I had just started driving tank trucks, me and my instructor each drove separate trucks. One night as we were returning to our delivery area, we were hauling road oil, we stopped for coffee at an old truck stop along old route 66 in south central Illinois. As we drank our coffee outside the restaurant, two guys came along with a large male raccoon. My instructor asked what they were going to with it and they said "we don't know" My buddy asked them:"Do you want to see something funny?" They said sure, so my buddy gets an old gym bag out of his truck, dumps his stuff out of it, borrows a pair of gloves and stuffs that mad raccoon into the bag and zips it shut. The next move was to take the bag set it alongside the main highway and run back to the station parking lot. Just as planned, an old turquoise Plaza Plymouth screeches to a stop, a long arm reaches out and snags the bag. Off they go with a cloud of blue smoke following them. About the time the car gets to sixty, more blue smoke from sliding tires, the doors fly open and everybody bails out and they are looking back. Pretty soon that nasty raccoon comes ambling out of the car, and everybody in the parking lot is on the ground laughing. Well worth the loss of an old gym bag.

Bob had finally made it to the last round of the $50,000 Question. The night before the big question, he told the host MC that he desired a question on American History. The big night arrived. Bob made his way onstage in front of the studio and TV audience. He had become the talk of the week. He was the best guest this show had ever seen. The MC stepped up to the mike. "Bob, you have chosen American History as your final question. You know that if you correctly answer this question, you will walk away $50,000 dollars richer. Are you ready?" Bob nodded with a cocky confidence -- the crowd went nuts. He hadn't missed a question all week. "Bob, yours is a two-part question. As you know, you may answer either part first. As a rule, the second half of the question is always easier. Which part would you like to take a stab at first?" Bob was becoming more noticeably nervous. He couldn't believe it, but he was not sure, but American History was his easiest subject, and he played it safe. "I'll try the easier part first." The MC nodded approvingly. "Here we go Bob. I will ask you the second half first, then the first half." The audience grew silent with gross anticipation... "Bob, here is your question: And in what year did it happen?"
