______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Andrew David Jensen, 42, Thousand Oaks, California DNA from unflushed toilet nailed California burglar Police in Thousand Oaks, California, used DNA found in an unflushed toilet to finger a burglary suspect. Andrew David Jensen, 42, was arrested on July 28 on suspicion of committing a burglary last October. Detectives managed to sniff out the suspect after they found some fecal matter in a toilet at the crime scene and had it tested for DNA, according to the Ventura County Star. The sample was sent to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Forensic Services Bureau for processing before being submitted to the Combined DNA Information System to see if there was a match with a known suspect. Police got a DNA match on July 25 for Jensen, who they tracked down to his home in nearby Ventura. He was arrested three days later on suspicion of first-degree residential burglary, a felony, according to the Associated Press. His bail was set at $180,000. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bonnie Re: Shortcut to music folder Dear Webby, Is there a way to create a short cut and thus a desk top icon to a music file folder that does not give that option when I right click on it?

In Ireland there is a mental institution that every year picks two of it's most reformed patients and questions them. If they get the questions right they are free to leave. This year the two lucky patients were Patty and Mike. They were called down to the office and left there by the orderly. They were told to wait as the doctor got their files. The doctor came out and motioned for Patty to come in for her questioning. When Patty came into the office she was instructed to sit in the seat across from the doctor. "Patty, you know the tradition of this institution so I imagine you know why you are here. You will be asked two questions, and if you get them right, you will be free to go. Do you understand all that you have been told?" said the doctor with a rather sly grin. Patty nodded, and the doctor began to question her. The first question was this. "Patty, if I was to poke out one of your eyes, what would happen?" "I would be half blind of course," Patty answered without much thought. "What would happen if I poked out the other eye?" "I would be completely blind," said Patty knowing that she had just gotten her freedom. The doctor then sent her outside while he drew up the paperwork and accessed Mike's files. When Patty got into the waiting room however, she told Mike what the questions would be and what the correct answers were. The doctor calls in Mike and he followed the same procedure that he had with Patty. "Mike, the first question is what would happen if I cut off your ear?" "I would be blind in one eye," he said remembering what he had been told. This received a perplexed look from the doctor but he just simply asks the other question so that he could figure out what the man was thinking. "Mike, what would happen if I cut off your other ear?" "I would be completely blind," he answered with a smile as if he knew he had passed. But then the doctor asked him what his reasoning was, and he said flatly, "Me hat would fall down over me eyes."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Brice Gross, 19, Georgetown, Kentucky Man arrested for trying to strangle woman in Kentucky cemetery Georgetown Police arrested a man they say tried to strangle a woman in a cemetery, with the intent to kill her. Police say Brice Gross, 19, snuck up behind a woman on Saturday evening in the Georgetown Cemetery. Police say he attacked the woman and began to try to strangle her. The woman was able to fight him off, and Gross ran away, police said. Officers located Gross shortly after and arrested him. According to his arrest citation, Gross told police that he was going to strangle the woman until she was unconscious, then put her body in her own vehicle. He then told police he was going to place a rock on the car’s gas pedal and send it into a body of water. In an interview from jail, Gross told WKYT's Garrett Wymer that he was at the cemetery visiting his uncle's grave, when he blacked out and went into another personality. "I vaguely remember getting her to the ground and then running," Gross said. "That's just about it. I don't remember anything else." Gross said he has several hundred personalities that he deals with - though he says nothing violent like this has happened before. He said he thinks visiting his uncle's grave brought to the surface a lot of emotions that he says likely triggered the personality change on Saturday. He says he knows he needs medical help. Gross is now charged with attempted murder and kidnapping. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Hijacked Dear Webby, It looks like I've been high jacked by Whenever I open a new tab in Firefox, the address automatically goes to I checked on the internet and evidently this is not a virus, but it will redirect your browser to sites of their choice that may be malicious.

>From Irene: During a visit to a military medical clinic, I was sent to the lab to have blood drawn. The technician there was friendly and mentioned that his mood improved every day because he was due to leave the service in two months. As he applied the tourniquet on my arm, he told me that taking the blood wouldn't hurt much. Then, noticing my Air Force T-shirt he asked me what my husband did. When I replied that he was a recruiter, the technician smiled slyly and said, "This might hurt a little more than I thought."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Clayton P. Carter, 51, Wesst Goshen, Pennsylvania Anti-Trump fanatic” murders his Republican neighbor The victim G. Brooks Jennings was murdered while his wife watched Clayton stand over her husband and shoot him in the head. Police have charged Clayton Carter, 51, in the shooting death of G. Brooks Jennings. Shortly before 8 p.m. Monday, police responded to the 300 block of Box Elder Drive for a dispute between Carter and Jennings about Carter cursing and noisy video recording in the back yard. Police said they were able to resolve that dispute. Then at approximately 1 a.m. Tuesday, police say the neighbors got into another dispute. Carter told police that Jennings shined a light into his eyes while he was outside. Carter then allegedly pulled a car onto his lawn, shining the high beams of the car on Jennings’ property. Carter then allegedly retrieved a .380 semi-automatic handgun from his house and confronted the victim again outside. Officials say Carter shot Jennings once in the head, knocking him to the ground. Carter then allegedly stood over Jennings’ body and shot him once more in the head. The victim was on his own property, police said. Jennings’ wife allegedly heard the first gunshot, then saw Carter stand over her husband as he fired the second shot. Police recovered two shell casings, the gun and a knife at the scene. One shell casing was located on Carter’s property. The second shell casing was found on the victim’s property, near Jennings’ body. Carter has been charged with murder and related offenses, and is currently being held at the Chester County Prison. Neighbor Brian Dougherty got emotional when speaking of Jennings. “You don’t want to sound cliche, you see this on TV all the time, but he is probably the nicest, best guy I’ve ever met in my whole life. Really, seriously,” Dougherty said. Police say Carter had disputes with a number of other neighbors, and even pulled a gun on Jennings during a past altercation. Neighbors say Carter was a quarrelsome, argumentative man. Court records claim Carter had a history of disputes with many neighbors. His front yard was crowded with cars and hand lettered anti-Trump signs. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Noella Re: Alarm about Dear Webby, I am getting an alarm about every now and then.

Husband shopping A Walmart store that sells husbands has just opened in town where a woman may go to choose a husband from among many men. The store is comprised of 6 floors, and the men increase in positive attributes as the shopper ascends the flights. There is however, a catch. As you open the door to any floor you may choose a man from that floor, but if you go up a floor, you cannot go back down except to exit the building. So a woman goes to the shopping center to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads: Floor 1 - These men have jobs. The second floor sign reads: Floor 2 - These men have jobs and love kids. The third floor sign reads: Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love kids and are extremely good looking. "Wow" so she goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads: Floor 4 - These men have jobs, loves kids, are extremely good looking and help with the housework. "Oh, mercy me! So she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads: Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking, help with the housework and have a strong romantic streak. She is so tempted she goes to the sixth floor and sign reads: Floor 6 - You are visitor 3,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping Wal Mart's Husband Store -

Daily tip from Homemade Scale To Determine Postage By Chuck [22 Posts, 183 Comments] At times I wasn't certain if outgoing mail needed more than a 1 oz. first class stamp, so I'd have to drive to a post office. I decided to build my own scale and it works. A simple balance-beam scale is easy to build. Comparative mass for a one ounce weight (28.3 grams) is almost exactly the same as five modern US quarters (28.35 grams). In my picture I included five quarters in the packages at each end of the scale. It seems the loaded envelope plus stamp is a tiny bit heavier, so I need to add postage. All I needed was an inexpensive laundry hanger section, a few paper clips, and a tool or two, and I was set. By Chuck1 For rare and occasional weighing once or twice a year that sure beats paying $8 plus shipping for a digital kitchen scale from Amazon! ____________________________________________________

Soon after, while the couple was vacationing at a resort complex to get his mind off a rather complicated cocaine conspiracy case, he noticed a small, round disc sewn into the design of the tie. The judge showed it to a local FBI agent, who was equally suspicious that it might be a 'bug' planted by the conspiracy defendants. The agent sent the device to FBI headquarters In Washington, DC for analysis. Two weeks later, the judge phoned the Washington office to learn the results of their tests. "We're not sure where the disc came from," the FBI told him, "but we discovered that when you press it, it plays 'Jingle Bells.'" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A man approached his family physician and said, "Doc, I'm afraid you'll have to remove my wife's tonsils one of these days."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jesus Esquivel, 63, Miami, Florida Florida man kills AAA contract worker over response time A man in Miami faces second-degree murder charges after police said he fatally shot a AAA contract worker over the amount of time he waited to get assistance. Jesus Esquivel, 63, initially threatened a 24-hour roadside AAA technician when he called him to fix a car battery at his home, WPLG reports. The technician then requested AAA dispatch to remove him from Esquivel’s service call, and an employee of a company contracted by AAA came to assist him instead. Once the employee arrived, police said Esquivel confronted him and shot him multiple times. Police said the victim died at the scene, according to WPLG. Police took Esquivel to Miami-Dade County Jail Wednesday after he confessed to fatally shooting the employee. Looks like he has his retirement home picked out. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Helga Re: Quiet emergency power Dear Webby, I know you used to live in the arctic, and you were in the last hurricane, but you never missed a single Humor Letter. Obviously you must be a wizz with emergency power. OK, now that I have flattered you up, what free advice do I get about emergency power in an apartment where It would be frowned upon, if I ran a noisy generator in the hallway? I just need the power for the laptop and a few lights. The rest I can fake for a few days. Thanks Helga Dear Helga Just get a few car or truck batteries, an automotive battery charger, and a Stat-Power 12 Volt DC to 120 Volt AC inverter, like the ones you plug into a car cigarette lighter to convert the car's 12 Volt into regular household type electricity. If you keep the batteries charged beforehand, they will power a laptop and a few folded tube fluorescents for a week or more, even more if you get LED lights at the Dollar Tree. Keep in mind, they usually have the tiny end like a sewing machine light, and you may have to get an adapter from Home Depot or an electrical supply business. Printers are not easy on power. Try to avoid printing until the power returns. If you expect the power outage to last longer, you can get one of those cute little Yamaha briefcase style Inverter class generators or something like that. They are very quiet and, if you hang them outside a window, make less noise than a sewing machine. They have a 12 Volt outlet for battery charging built in. Don't hang it outside a window on the ground floor. It would walk away in a hurry! Have FUN! DearWebby

One day God and Adam were walking the garden. God told Adam that it was time to populate the Earth. "Adam, you can start by kissing Eve." "Lord, what is a kiss?" asked Adam. God explained, and then Adam took Eve behind the bush and kissed her. A little while later, Adam returned with a big smile and said, "Lord! That was great! What's next?" "Adam, I now want you to caress Eve." "Lord, what is caress?" asked Adam. God explained, and then Adam took Eve behind the bush and caressed her. A little while later, Adam returned with a big smile and said, "Lord that was even better than a kiss! What's next?" "Here is what gets the deed done. I now want you to make love to Eve." "Lord, what is make love?" asked Adam. God explained, and then Adam took Eve behind the bush. A few seconds later, Adam returned and asked, "Lord, what is a headache?"

____________________________________________________ >From Chris in Oz It was dead winter and colder than hell, when Billy noticed his outdoor toilet was full. Now that was a problem he didn't know how to handle, so Billy searched out Clem for advice. Clem told Billy that the thought they could use dynamite to clean out the hole. He just happened to have a few sticks left from a job he done the past summer. The next day Clem went over to Billy's house and they both looked down the hole. Clem said, "Yep, its full. I think this one will take two sticks!" So he and Billy got busy, put the dynamite in the hole and put a long fuse to it. They were standing behind the wood pile nearby when Billy's wife Sally came running out of the house and headed straight for the toilet. Billy and Clem both yelled and hollered for Sally to stop, but she kept going and said, "I don't have time to stop and talk, I gotta take care of business." WELL lo and behold, Sally no more than got seated and the whole toilet blew up. Boards and shit flew all over. Sally picked herself off the ground, looked at Billy and Clem and said, "WHEW, I am sure glad that I didn't let that one go in the house!" --------------------- Believe it or not, but that method is actually quite popular in the arctic. However, there outhouses are built on skids, and for blowing over the frozen pyramid down below, the outhouse is hitched up to the sled dogs and towed 20 feet upwind. Done that many times when I was living in the Yukon. ___________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ A young man asked an old rich man how he made his money. The old guy fingered his worsted wool vest and said, "Well, son, it was 1932. The depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel. I invested that nickel in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents. The next morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and sold them at 5:00 pm for 20 cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I'd accumulated a fortune of $1.37. Then my wife's father died and left us two million dollars. That was quite a lot of money in those days!"

____________________________________________________ There once was a king who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The King looked at all the pictures, but there were only two he really liked and he had to choose between them. One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror for peaceful towering mountains were all around it. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace. The other picture had mountains too. But these were rugged and bare. Above was an angry sky from which rain fell, in which lightening played. Down the side of the mountain tumbled a foaming waterfall. This did not look peaceful at all. But when the King looked, he saw behind the waterfall a tiny bush growing in a crack in the rock. In the bush a mother bird had built her nest. There, in the midst of the rush of angry water, sat the mother bird on her nest ... perfect peace. Which picture do you think won the prize? The King chose the second picture. Do you know why? "Because," explained the King, "peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart. That is the real meaning of peace." ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dennis Strickland 33, Sioux City, Iowa $1M bill deposit attempt leads to Iowa man’s drug arrest Authorities say a man who tried to deposit what he presented as a $1 million bill has been charged with drug possession in Iowa. A criminal complaint says Sioux City police officers were called to a Northwest Bank branch Thursday to talk to a man who tried to deposit the bill into his account. The officers asked 33-year-old Dennis Strickland whether he had any more of the bills and that a baggie fell out when he emptied a pocket. The complaint says the baggie contained methamphetamine. The U.S. Treasury Department says it has never produced a $1 million bill. There was no mention yet about a counterfeiting charge. That used to be severely frowned upon. Iowa court records say Strickland is scheduled to be back in court Monday. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dick Re: Resizer Program Dear Webby, I noticed that someone wanted to resize a picture.

Dick Dear Dick There are tons of resizer programs, but sooner or later she does need some kind of graphics program. For example, if she wants to cut off a few inches of empty sky or lawn, a resizer won`t help. Or for adding smart-ass captions, or for lightening, darkening, sharpening, etc. Even the simplest free graphics programs do that. Nowadays even MS-PAINT, long derided as an impotent piece of loon shit, can do that, and it is still included free with Windows.

When he went to tell Mary the news he said, "Mary, I have good news & bad news. The good news is you're being discharged because since you were able to jump in and save the life of another patient, I think you've regained your senses. The bad news is, Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself with his bathrobe belt in the bathroom. I am so sorry, but he's dead." Mary replied "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry."

The man, identified as 56-year-old Michael Keller, was using a large smartphone with an enlarged font. It allowed the woman to take photos of the text, Seattle police said in a release. “The content of the text messages was very disturbing to the witness as it involved comments about the sexual exploitation of children,” police said. The passenger’s photo revealed that Burnworth told Kellar that she would have the children to herself on Sunday and that she would drug them with Benadryl, then record herself molesting them while they slept, the complaint stated. She also agreed to film Kellar raping the victims while they slept, the complaint stated. The woman, who Mercury News reported is a Seattle-based preschool teacher, alerted the plane’s crew, which then contacted police working inside Mineta San Jose International Airport. Officers detained Keller. The suspected recipient of his messages, identified by police as Gail Burnworth, 50, was then tracked down to her home in Tacoma, Washington, where she was arrested. Two children located at her residence, ages 5 and 7, are believed to have been victimized, police said. Keller was booked on two counts of felony attempted child molestation and two counts of solicitation of sex crime, which is also a felony, according to a release by San Jose police. Burnworth was booked for sexual exploitation of a minor, a felony, first-degree rape of a child, also a felony, and dealing in depiction of a minor engaged in sexually explicit condition, also a felony. The woman who reported the text message to the flight crew is meanwhile being hailed a hero. Since it was not police, but a random passenger, who spotted the evidence, the evidence should stand up in court. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Kitty Re: Resizing picture on a page Dear Webby, i just wanted to say think you again for all your tips.

Daily tip from Homemade Cat Repellent By Rob [1 Post, 52 Comments] My friend had a big problem with cats peeing and pooing in his garden. His solution? He got a spray bottle and mixed water, Tabasco sauce, and pee. Yes, he used his own pee, not a lot. The mix was mostly water, so people could not smell it, even in hot summer. He hardly saw a cat, or cat mess in his garden after that. ____________________________________________________

Using a machete to clear thick brush in an area I was mapping, I came upon a golf club that an irate player must have tossed away. It was in good condition, so I picked it up and continued on. When I broke out of the brush onto a putting green, two golfers stared at me in awe. I had a machete in one hand, a golf club in the other, and behind me was a clear-cut swath over 100 yards long. "There," said one of the golfers, "is a guy who hates to lose his ball!" ___________________________________________________

After seeing this at several intersections in a row the motorist followed him until he pulled into a parking lot. When they both had come to a stop the truck driver once again jumped out and started banging on the trailer door. The motorist went up to him and said, "I don't mean to be nosey but why do you keep banging on that door?" To which the trucker replied, "Sorry, can't talk now, I have 20 tons of canarries and a 10 ton limit, so i have to keep half of them flying at all times."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Walter, the stonecarver An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Noel Grullon, 32, Hialeah, Florida Florida man set pregnant girlfriend on fire, is still on the run. Police say a Hialeah man who allegedly set his pregnant girlfriend on fire last month is still on the run. Noel Grullon, 32, fled the home he shared with Allyson Rivera on July 27, the day police say he set the pregnant woman on fire after she ended their six month relationship. "He is one step ahead of us," said Hialeah Police spokesperson Carl Zogby. "He hasn't gone back to work and hasn't gone anywhere expected." A nationwide warrant has now been issued for Grullon and his name has been placed in the National Crime Information Center. The day after learning Rivera was ending their relationship, Grullon started pulling drawers off cabinets and throwing them on the floor. When Rivera asked him to stop, Grullon returned with a gasoline can, poured it over her head and set her on fire. Grullon also smashed Rivera's phone so she could not call 911. Grullon is believed to have fled in a 2007 black Ford 150 pickup truck with Florida license plate HVD-E62. Rivera was hospitalized after extinguishing the flames by running to the shower. A social worker reported the domestic violence incident to police. Anyone with information is urged to call 305-687-2525 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ross Re: Forward spam to the FTC Dear Webby, If everyone forwarded their spam to FTC.... Maybe Mailwasher should have an Auto Send To FTC option? Ross Dear Ross I suggested that to Nick when MailWasher was still in the experimental stage about 20 years ago, however he felt that it could lead to abuse and never implemented that. The FTC does not read the spam anyway. They simply count the number of spams that were submitted in hopes that the FTC would do something about it. The submissions are simple counted and deleted. That number is then used to establish the gullibility index, which in turn is probably used by the gas stations to regulate the pump price. Since the Government gets a fixed percentage of that, this helps paying for Senators who promote spam with legislation like the CAN-SPAM law. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Microwave Corn on the Cob By Harlean [145 Posts, 453 Comments] You will never boil sweet corn in a kettle of water again. Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 5 to 8 minutes Total Time: 15 to 20 minute Yield: 1 or 2 Steps: Begin with ears of corn still in the husk. Cut the bottom end off, and rinse with cold water let drain. Do not peel back the husk. Place one or two ears in the microwave. Set the microwave for 5-8 minutes. If you are using 2 ears add another 3 minutes or so to the timer. You can always change the amount of time, if you like your corn cooked more. Use towel, mitts or potholders to remove the hot ears from the microwave and pull the husks off starting on the top end. The corn silk will come off clean and easily. Cut the husk off at the bottom of the ear. If you need more corn, just wrap the finished hot corn, still in the husk, in a towel while you cook more. Once the husk is removed place in a holder or on a plate and add butter and salt. You will never boil sweet corn in a kettle of water again. And then there is the traditional hillbilly method: 1) Toss the corn into the microwave and nuke it for 8 minutes 2) Cut it at the widest spot, just before it narrows to the stem. 3) Grab it at the hairy end (top) with a pot holder and squeeze hard. If you cut the stem end at the widest spot, the corn will slide out of the husk without any silk. Until you get the hang of that, you may have to re-cut the stem end. Holding it with the hairy end (top) up, and shaking it a bit also helps, if the corn is not that fresh and does not slide easily. 4) Rub some butter on the corn, sprinkle a bit of salt and fresh ground pepper, poke the two-pronged corn spikes into the ends, and enjoy!

"Think it's safe to cross?" the man asked. "I reckon so," replied the farmer. The car was immediately swallowed by the puddle as the man drove in. In fact, it was so deep that he had to roll his window down to swim out of his car back to the surface.

Daily tip from High Protein Cheesy Breadsticks (Flourless) By attosa [382 Posts, 1,850 Comments] This is an awesome rendition of cheesy breadsticks. It contains no flour whatsoever so it is keto/low-carb friendly and super yummy. I pulsed 10 ounces of leftover rotisserie chicken for this recipe, but you can use canned cooked chicken, too. Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes Ingredients: 10 oz ounces cooked and ground chicken 1 oz Parmesan cheese 1 Tbsp dried oregano 1 raw egg 1/3 cup shredded cheese Steps: Preheat oven to 375 F. Put ground chicken in a large bowl and add the Parmesan cheese. Mix well. Mix in the oregano. Crack in the egg and stir well until the crumbly mixture turns into a moist dough. Press dough into a large square shape on a lightly greased baking sheet. Make sure it is at least 1/3 of an inch thick. With a pizza cutter or knife, cut into 1 inch wide sticks. Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with cheese. If so desired, add a bit of garlic powder. I put it on half of this one for a guest who is not so keen on garlic. How dare they?:) Raise heat to 400 F and pop sticks back into the oven for five minutes or until edges are golden and cheese is slightly browned. Serve on its own or with a dipping sauce. ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ Thanks to Roland for this story: The Texas preacher rose with an angry red face, saying, "Someone in this congregation has spread a rumor that I belong to the Ku Klux Klan. This is a horrible lie, and one which a Christian community cannot tolerate. I am embarrassed and do not intend to accept this." "Now, I want the party who did this to stand and ask forgiveness from God and this Christian family." No one moved. The preacher continued, "Do you have the nerve to face me and admit that this is a falsehood? Remember, you will be forgiven and in your heart you will feel wonderful. Now please stand and confess your transgression." Again all was quiet. Then, slowly, a drop-dead gorgeous blonde named Cathy, with a body that would stop traffic, rose from the third pew. Her head was bowed and her voice quavered as she spoke. "Reverend there has been a terrible misunderstanding." "I never said you were a member of the Ku Klux Klan. I simply told a couple of my friends that you were a wizard under the sheets!" The preacher fainted.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jamie Adkins, 25, Brian Dekam, 55, Elyria, Ohio Baby sitters arrested for putting flea-infested kids in the back of a U-Haul truck Two city workers thought something was amiss when they saw five children getting into the back of a U-Haul truck at a gas station. They stopped the driver from leaving and called 911. Elyria police and firefighters arrived Wednesday afternoon and found the children, ranging in age from 2 to 15, soaked with sweat, infested with lice and covered with flea and bedbug bites. A woman who described herself as the children's godmother was in the back of the U-Haul being driven by a 55-year-old man. Her fiance was a passenger in the truck's cab. The woman, 25-year-old Jamie Adkins, explained to officers that she had been caring for the four younger children the last two weeks and that they had left Cleveland early that morning to travel to a flea market in Amherst, a city in Lorain County near Elyria. Adkins said she had called the children's mother, who hadn't seen them for two weeks, and had told her where they were going and how they'd be getting there. Adkins told police the mother said she hoped the kids "would have fun." The 2-year-old, a boy, was taken to an Elyria medical center and then flown to a children's hospital in Cleveland to be treated for heat exhaustion. Elyria is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of downtown Cleveland. Adkins and the U-Haul driver, 55-year-old Brian Dekam, both Cleveland residents, were taken into custody and charged with multiple counts of child endangering. They were eventually released for medical reasons, police said. Court records don't indicate whether they have attorneys. The four older children, ages 3, 4, 6 and 15, have been placed in foster care in Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland. The 2-year-old also will be placed in county custody after leaving the hospital. Elyria police Capt. Chris Constantino on Friday called the two city workers heroes for having "intervened in the right way." He said the 2-year-old was bright red, nonresponsive and in "serious medical duress" on a day when temperatures rose above 80 degrees. "If they hadn't taken action, it could have been tragic," Constantino said. Luckily they knew that hauling kids in the back of a truck, without seatbelts, is highly illegal. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Carolyn Re: Newsletter Dear Webby, I am not receiving yours or the Angelwinks newsletter.

Daily tip from Woven Bacon Shell Breakfast Taco By attosa [382 Posts, 1,850 Comments] This low carb breakfast taco isn't only super delicious, it looks super cool! Weave the bacon, pop it in the oven, and fill with your favourite breakfast foods. This will be a hit for your family and friends. You can do the weaving straight on your baking sheet. I used a coloured silicone mat so you could see what I was doing more clearly and not get a reflection off the baking sheet's shine. Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes Yield: 1 huge taco to share Ingredients: 10 pieces raw bacon 1 raw egg 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese some chopped jalapeno Steps: Preheat oven to 425 F. Lay 5 strips of bacon across a baking sheet, making sure they are flush up against each other. The fatty sides should all face one direction and meaty sides should all face the other direction. Fold every other strip in half onto itself. Lay one strip of bacon perpendicular to those strips, flush up against the back of the folds. Unfold those flipped strips back over the perpendicular strip of bacon. Now fold every other strip in the alternating columns. Lay one strip of bacon perpendicular to those strips, flush up against the back of the folds. Unfold those strips back down over the perpendicular strip of bacon. Repeat again with the first set of strips. Do the same thing on the upper half of the weave. There should be the same number of strips going down as there are going across. Trim the edges of the woven bacon a bit to resemble a circle. Pop in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. When it's mostly cooked and holding its shape, remove from oven. Take two tin cans and lay metal tongs or a metal knife across the two to make a bridge. Lay the bacon disc over the bridge. Pop back in the oven for 10 minutes or so, until crisped. To make your quick scrambled eggs, crack your egg into a mug and whisk with a fork. Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Fill bacon shell with cheese, then egg, the more cheese. Sprinkle with jalapeno. Enjoy! Don't forget the Salsa! ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ A family had moved to Seattle from Texas, and each of them missed their old home. That December, when they went to pick up their first-grade son from school, his teacher told them about a conversation she overheard. One boy said, "We're Catholic, and we are going to Christmas Mass." "Were Jewish," said another child. "And we're going to have a Hanukkah celebration. "Madison chimed in, "We're Texans, and were going to have a barbecue." ___________________________________________________
Interesting body painting.
___________________________________________________ I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family there were no miracles left for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for the four-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience, and realize that Belker would go gently. The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's Family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, "I know why." Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. He said, "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?" Everyone shook their heads in agreement. The four-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Linda Hoey, 59, Cannock, Staffordshire, UK Welfare cheat who claimed she 'couldn't walk' caught out by holiday snaps snorkeling and ATV riding Linda Hoey, from the UK, fraudulently claimed a total of £81,000 ($134,000) including £65,244 in Disability Living Allowance and £15,690 in toll charges using a disability card over a 14-year period. Hoey, 58, claimed that degenerative arthritis and back problems meant that she could only walk a metre a minute, and couldn’t stretch her arms above her head. However, she was caught out when pictures from her holiday in the Maldives were passed to the Department for Work and Pensions. Despite claiming that her arthritis meant she was unable to work, she was employed full-time for PartsWorld, a car accessory supplier in Cannock, Staffordshire, for 17 years. A court heard how she was also pictured on her knees altering her daughter’s wedding dress and bent over a pool table with a cue in her hand. Inquiries also revealed that she was a member of a gym, and had been attending regular swimming and badminton lessons. Hoey was found guilty of misrepresenting her benefit claim between 2001 and 2015 and misusing an exemption pass for the M6 Toll Road between 2004 and 2015 at Stafford Crown Court on Friday. Prosecutor Anthony Cartin said: “She had been working full time from 1997 in a desk job doing the exact thing — sitting for a long time in the same position — she said she could not do without pain. “She has lied and exaggerated, cheating you, me and the public out of money from the public purse. Stewart Halstead, Hoey’s former boss at PartsWorld — which she left in 2014 — said he was unaware of her claimed health problems. He revealed that he had never seen her use a stick, and that she would regularly walk up and down stairs with trays of hot drinks. The mum-of-four filed her first form claiming Disability Living Allowance in 1995, and successfully made an appeal for more money in April 2005. After the Department for Work and Pensions received a tip-off, police visited her home in February last year and spotted her walking down the stairs to answer the front door. Her home had not been adapted for her supposed disability. She has been found guilty and will be sentenced some time in the future. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: Copy Music CD Dear Webby, Dear Webby, Thanks for the fun all year long.

The woman entered the room, and with a knowing smile teasing her full lips,she sank into the comfort of the plush chair in the corner. The handsome stranger turned, having sensed her approach. Locking his steely gray eyes on hers, he moved slowly toward her, his experienced gaze measuring her, hypnotizing her with his soft murmurs of assurance. He sank to his knees before her and without a word, smoothly released her from her constraining attire. With a sigh of surrender, she allowed his foreign hands to unleash her bare flesh. He expertly guided his hands through this tender, often hidden territory, his movements deliberate, confident in his ability to satisfy her every need. Her senses swam. She was overcome with an aching desire that had gone unfulfilled for so long. And, just as it seemed that ecstasy was within her grasp, he paused, and for one heart-stopping moment, she thought, "It's too big! - it will never fit!" Then, with a sudden rush, it slid into place as if it had been made only for her! As pleasure and contentment washed over her, she met his steady gaze, tears of gratitude shining in her eyes. And he knew it wouldn't be long before she returned. Oh, yes, this woman would want more. She would want to do it again and again and again. He knew, deep down inside, that she would return to buy more shoes the next year, and the next, and the next.

Daily tip from Saving Money at Restaurants 1. Don't order alcoholic drinks. 2. Try meatless dishes, they are almost always cheaper. 3. Go out to lunch, instead of dinner. 4. Split large dishes between two people. 5. Order off the senior menu if you can. Lunch menus are usually significantly cheaper than dinner menus. Senior portions cost less and tend to be smaller portions. You may get a bit less food, but that is better for your waistline. Serving sizes are ridiculously large at most restaurants.

Compton allegedly responded by casting the blame upon marijuana, claiming that the cannabis “makes him do sick things.” He has raked up multiple charges, including four counts of bestiality, four counts of criminal trespassing and four counts of misdemeanor cruelty to animals. Compton remains in the Benton County Jail on $5,000 bond. His court date is set for September 11, 2017. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dee Re: Clickbook Dear Webby, Dear Webby, Okay, just when I thought I had heard about all the programs .... What is 'ClickBook' ??? Dee Dear Dee ClickBook is a printer driver. You install that driver and all of a sudden you have an extra printer. When you print, you can choose it instead of your regular printer or fax. It just adds a whole lot more capabilities to your printer. When you click it, up pops a selector menu to choose a layout. Let's say you click on "Folded Half Size, 4 pages per sheet". (There are about 170 different layouts to choose from.) It prints the first side of all pages, and on top is a helper sheet that shows you how to put the stack back in for the back side. On my printer I simply take the stack, and without turning or flipping put it into the blank paper tray. Then you hit "Print Second Side" and it does that. Afterward you take the stack, fold it in half, bang some staples through the fold and your book is ready. Paperback book size, printed front and back, and all the pages in the right sequence. On a sheet you might have page 7 beside page 256, but when the stack is folded, the math has been done for you and all pages are sequenced properly. There are layouts for anything from CD sleeves to day-planner refills, store flyers, convention table "tents", restaurant menus, flip-down accounting ledgers, etc. Personally, I would be lost without it. Once upon a time, when I was young and beautiful, I used to be able to do that sort of thing by simply wasting an hour or two with a word processor, but I have turned into a spoiled, lazy old fart and forgot how to do it the hard way. Clickbook is not free. It's still only $50, but well worth it. You make that back the first time you print the programs and table tents for a wedding or club event. For printing eBooks 4 pages per sheet, nice and compact so that you can read it on today's narrow airplane seats, Clickbook is indispensable. instead of the long URL, the shortcut straight to it is Have FUN! DearWebby

>From RPC: Our local news anchor (picture a cute, bubbly cheerleader type) was commenting on the newest things allowed on airplanes. Among them were small scissors and screwdrivers. After the story was over, she looked at her co-anchor and said: "I don't know about you, but I've NEVER had a sudden urge to clip or screw ANYTHING on board an aircraft!" Her male co-anchor just looked at her and burst out laughing. LOL, needless to say they cut to commercial immediately!

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Andrew Johnson, Director of Meteorology, Australia Australias Weather Bureau Caught AGAIN Tampering With Climate Numbers to fake warming Australian scientists at the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) ordered a review of temperature recording instruments after the government agency was caught AGAIN tampering with temperature logs in several locations. Meteorologist Lance Pidgeon watched the 13 degrees Fahrenheit Goulburn recording from July 2 disappear from the bureau's website. The temperature readings fluctuated briefly and then disappeared from the government's website. "The temperature dropped to minus 10 (13 degrees Fahrenheit), stayed there for some time and then it changed to minus 10.4 (14 degrees Fahrenheit) and then it disappeared," Pidgeon said, adding that he notified scientist Jennifer Marohasy about the problem, who then brought the readings to the attention of the bureau. "The bureau's quality-control system, designed to filter out spurious low or high values was set at minus 10 minimum for Goulburn which is why the record automatically adjusted," a bureau spokeswoman told reporters Monday. BOM added that there are limits placed on how low temperatures are allowed to go in some areas of the country (so as not to show actual cooling). If temperatures were lower than Global Warming predictions, then they were automatically "adjusted" upward to suit the Global Warming and Carbon Tax activists. Bureaus Chief Executive Andrew Johnson told Australian Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg that the failure to record the low temperatures at Goulburn in early July was due to faulty equipment. A similar failure wiped out a reading of 13 degrees Fahrenheit at Thredbo Top on July 16, even though temperatures at that station have been recorded as low as 5.54 degrees Fahrenheit. Marohasy, for her part, told reporters that Johnson's claims are nearly impossible to believe given that there are screen shots that show the very low temperatures before being "quality assured" out. The equipment itself showed the correct temperature, before the fakers messed with the logs. It could take several weeks before the equipment is eventually tested, reviewed and ready for service, Johnson said. BOM has been put under the microscope before for similar manipulations. The agency was accused in 2014 of tampering with the country's temperature record to make it appear as if temperatures had warmed over the decades, according to reports in August 2014. Marohasey claimed at the time that BOM's adjusted temperature records are "propaganda" and not science. She analyzed raw temperature data from places across Australia, compared them to BOM data, and found the agency's data created an artificial warming trend. Marohasey said BOM adjustments changed Aussie temperature records from a slight cooling trend to one of "dramatic warming" over the past century. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lynn Re: Swapping Monitors Dear Webby, Love your newsletter!

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD AND a Darwin Award, has been earned by Deltra Henderson, 39, Baton Rouge, Louisiana Escaped inmate kidnaps, kills asst. warden's teen stepdaughter, later dies in shootout with guards A prisoner abducted and killed an assistant warden's teenage stepdaughter after he escaped from a Louisiana prison, authorities said Friday. The inmate was later found dead after a standoff with police. Deltra Henderson, 39, walked away from his prison assignment at David Wade Correctional Center on Thursday afternoon, stole a car and kidnapped Amanda Carney, the Claiborne Parish Sheriff's Office said in a statement. The 18-year-old's body was found in a wooded area near the prison where Henderson crashed the car. Sheriff Ken Bailey said during a telephone interview that investigators believe Henderson stabbed Carney to death, but they're awaiting autopsy results. Henderson stole a second vehicle and crashed it, too, before he entered a nearby home on prison property and found a gun, authorities said. He barricaded himself inside after a gunfight with prison guards. Police found his body inside the home after the standoff ended. Investigators suspect Henderson was fatally wounded while he traded gunfire with prison guards, before police arrived, according to the sheriff. Carney, the girl, recently graduated from a local high school and was enrolling at Southern Arkansas University in the fall to study nursing, the sheriff said. Everybody knows everybody (here), the sheriff said. It's just tragic. The corrections department is offering grief counseling to staff members and inmates at the prison in Homer, which is in north Louisiana and can house up to 1,244 inmates. Henderson had been an inmate at the prison since June 2001. He arrived there about a month after he began serving a 30-year prison sentence for convictions on charges of cocaine distribution, attempted armed robbery and aggravated burglary. Henderson had a potential release date of March 28, 2025, the corrections department said. The News-Star reported that Henderson pleaded guilty to a 1999 armed robbery at a Farmerville home where a 14-year-old girl and her mother were seriously wounded by gunfire during the robbery. In 2015, Henderson petitioned a judge for a reduced sentence, expressing remorse and highlighting his status as a first offender, the newspaper reported. In his petition, Henderson wrote that he had completed programs in prison to become a better person and said he had been a young man, running around with the wrong crowd at the time of his offenses. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jerry Re: Erratic Toshiba laptop Dear Webby, I just got a new Toshiba Satellite laptop and cannot do word processing without text being jumbled like the next sentence.

All fares are by free will offering and da plane will not land 'til da budget is met. Pay attention to your flight attendant, who will acquaint you wit da safety system aboard dis Lutran Air 599. Okay den, listen up. I'm only gonna say dis vonce. In da event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, I am frankly going to be real surprised and so vill Captain Olson, because we fly right around twenty tousand feet, so loss of cabin pressure would probably mean da Second Coming or someting of dat nature, and I wouldn't bodar with doze liddle masks on da rubber tubes.

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Dianne A little old lady is walking down the street, dragging two plastic garbage bags with her, one in each hand. There's a hole in one of the bags, and every once in a while a $20 bill is flying out of it onto the pavement. Noticing this, a policeman stops her...."Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag..." "Dang!" says the little old lady....."I'd better go back and see if I can still find some. Thanks for the warning!" "Well, now, not so fast," says the cop. "How did you get all that money?" "Did you steal it?" "Oh, no", says the little old lady. "You see, my back yard backs up to the parking lot of the football stadium. Each time there's a game, a lot of fans come and pee in the bushes, right into my flower beds!" "So, I go and stand behind the fence behind the bushes with a big hedge clipper, and each time someone sticks his little thingy through the bushes, I clamp down and say: $20 or off it comes!" "Hey, not a bad idea!" laughs the cop. "OK, good luck! By the way, what's in the other bag?" "Well", says the little old lady, "not all of them pay up." ___________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ Thanks to Betty for this story: Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her excitement -- not even her parents' nasty divorce. Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear and would be the best dressed mother-of-the-bride ever! A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new young wife had bought the exact same dress! Jennifer asked her to exchange it, but she refused. "Absolutely not. I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I'm ! wearing it," she replied. Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, "Never mind sweetheart. I'll get another dress. After all, it's your special day." A few days later, they went shopping and did find another gorgeous dress. When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, "Aren't you going to return the other dress? You really don't have another occasion where you could wear it." Her mother just smiled and replied, "Of course I do, dear. I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding! And I'll be there early."

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Cookie for this story: Nick the Dragon Slayer had a long-standing obsession to nuzzle the beautiful Queen's voluptuous breasts, but he knew the penalty for this would be death. One day he revealed his secret desire to his colleague, Horatio the Physician, who was the King's chief doctor. Horatio the Physician exclaimed that he could arrange for Nick the Dragon Slayer to satisfy his desire, but it would cost him 1,000 gold coins. Without pause, Nick the Dragon Slayer readily agreed to the scheme. The next day, Horatio the Physician made a batch of itching powder and poured a little bit into the Queen's brassiere while she bathed. Soon after she dressed, the itching commenced and grew intense. Upon being summoned to the Royal Chambers to address this incident, Horatio the Physician informed the King and Queen that only a special saliva, if applied for four hours, would cure this type of itch, and that tests had shown that only the saliva of Nick the Dragon Slayer would work as the antidote to cure the itch. The King quickly summo ned Nick the Dragon Slayer. Horatio the Physician then slipped Nick the Dragon Slayer the antidote for the itching powder, which he quickly put into his mouth, and for four hours, Nick worked passionately on the Queen's voluptuous and magnificent breasts. The Queen's itching was eventually relieved, and Nick the Dragon Slayer left satisfied and was touted as a hero. Upon returning to his chambers, Nick the Dragon Slayer found Horatio the Physician demanding his payment of 1,000 gold coins. With his obsession now satisfied, Nick the Dragon Slayer couldn't have cared less, and, knowing that Horatio the Physician could never report this matter to the King, shooed him away with no payment made. The next day, Horatio the Physician slipped a massive dose of the same itching powder into the King's shorts. The King immediately summoned Nick the Dragon Slayer.

Unfortunately, the locals always had a habit of picking on newcomers. When he left the bar some time later, he realized that his horse had been stolen. The cowboy rushed back into the bar, handily flipped his gun into the air, caught it above his head without even looking, and then fired a shot into the ceiling. "Who stole my horse!" he yelled with surprising forcefulness. No one answered. "I'm gonna have another beer and if my horse ain't back outside by the time I'm finished, I'm gonna do what I did back in Texas. And let me tell you, I don't wanna have to do what I did back in Texas!" Some of the locals shifted restlessly. The cowboy had another beer, then walked outside to find his horse was back. So, he saddled up and prepared to ride out of town. The bartender wandered out of the bar and said, "Say partner, what happened in Texas anyway?" The cowboy turned back and said, "I had to walk home!" ______________________________________________________ Double _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tevin Quayshawn Williams, 19, Charlotte, North Carolina NC teen arrested after he kidnapped, raped, robbed a couple of tourists, who were walking to hotel A couple who was visiting Charlotte were reportedly kidnapped, robbed and sexually assaulted by a teenager who was later arrested, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police. Police say the couple was returning to their hotel in uptown Charlotte early Thursday morning and was walking along the 200 block of E. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard when they were approached by a man with a gun. That man, later identified as 19-year-old Tevin Quayshawn Williams, then forced the couple into an alley, bound the man and sexually assaulted the woman. He then reportedly robbed the couple and ran from the scene. He reportedly took their clothes, cellphones and wallets when he left. The couple, according to police, were able to run to a nearby hotel and call 911. Officers say they were able to provide a “very detailed” description of the man. Officers in the area began searching for the man with the police helicopter and K9 units. They later spotted him near Trade and Tryon streets in uptown Charlotte and say he appeared to be trying to avoid officers. He was arrested around 2:30 a.m. Thursday morning. Williams was charged with two counts of first-degree rape, three counts of first-degree sex offense, two counts of first-degree kidnapping, two counts of armed robbery, and possession of a stolen firearm. Arrest records show he was also charged with trespassing, resisting arrest, and urinating in public. Investigators say Williams was recently released from prison on a string of robberies from 2015. Just days ago police investigated a murder at an apartment in uptown. The CMPD offered a piece of advice for anyone traveling throughout the city. “Anytime you’re anywhere walking around at night you should always be aware of your surroundings and that goes without saying,” said Capt. Dave Johnson. Just being aware of the robbers and rapists in Charlotte won't help anybody. Being heavily armed and travelling in large groups might be more helpful. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Laura Re: Tape to CD Dear Webby, Thanks for your Humor letters -What a great way to start my day! Since you know so much about computers, I hope you have an answer for this question. I have some old cassette tapes (no longer available for purchase) that I'd like to use my computer to burn onto a CD. Is there an easy way to do this? Thanks, Laura Dear Laura Yes, there sure is. Connect a cable with male 1/8" headphone plugs on each end from the headphone socket on your tape player to the microphone socket on your computer, then record it with any sound recording software. Most sound cards come with some basic sound recording software, and you can find lots more with google. Recording quality is the same. The difference between different recording software is usually in how easy or complicated it is to splice and edit. Almost all of them are either free or have a free trial period. Just try a bunch of them and find the one that suits you the best. Save the music in MP3 format, so that you can play it in Audio CD and MP4 players. Have FUN! DearWebby
An elderly couple came back from a wedding one afternoon and were in a pretty romantic mood. While sitting on their loveseat, the elderly woman looked at her companion and said, "I remember when you used to kiss me every chance you had." The old man feeling a bit obliged leaned over and gave her a peck on the cheek. Then she said, "I also remember when you used to hold my hand at every opportunity." The old man again feeling obligated reached over and gently placed his hand on hers. The elderly woman then stated, "I also remember when you used to nibble on my neck and send chills down my spine." This time, the old man had a blank stare on his face and started to get up off the couch. As he began to walk out of the living room, his wife asked, "Was it something I said, where are you going?" The old man looked at her and replied, " I'm going im de odder room do gep my teef!"

____________________________________________________ An old Sailor and an old Marine were sitting at the VFW arguing about who'd had the tougher career. "I did 30 years in the Corps," the Marine declared proudly, "and fought in three of my country's wars. Fresh out of boot camp I hit the beach at Okinawa, clawed my way up the blood- soaked sand, and eventually took out an entire enemy machine gun nest with a single grenade. "As a sergeant, I fought in Korea alongside General MacArthur. We pushed back the enemy inch by bloody inch all the way up to the Chinese border, always under a barrage of artillery and small arms fire. "Finally, as a gunny sergeant, I did three consecutive combat tours in Vietnam. We humped through the mud and razorgrass for 14 hours a day, plagued by rain and mosquitoes, ducking under sniper fire all day and mortar fire all night. In a firefight, we'd fire until our arms ached and our guns were empty, then we'd charge the enemy with bayonets!" "Ah," said the Sailor with a dismissive wave of his hand, "just routine shore duty, huh?" ___________________________________________________

A building contractor was being paid by the week for a job that was likely to stretch over several months. He approached the owner of the property and held up the check he'd been given. "This is two hundred dollars less than we agreed on," he said. "I know," the owner said. "But last week I overpaid you two hundred dollars, and you never complained." The contractor said.

Daily tip from Tater Tot Waffle Cheese and Bacon Sandwich By attosa [374 Posts, 1,793 Comments] Total Time: 12 minutes Yield: 1 huge sandwich that should probably be shared ;) Ingredients: 24 frozen tater tots, thawed 2 slices bacon 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese Steps: Preheat your waffle iron on high. Cut your bacon to fit in the sandwich. If you're using a big round Belgian press, you probably don't need to cut much. Cook them in a pan on both sides until crisp. Drain bacon and set aside. Place the thawed tater tots very close together in an even layer on the waffle iron. Close the lid and press it down. Cook until the tater tot waffle is crisp, about 5 minutes. My waffle maker seems to heat more on one side, so I like to flip them over and cook another few minutes to ensure they're super crisp. On one of the waffles, add half the cheddar cheese. Place cooked bacon on top of cheese. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Place the other waffle on top and press down the top of the iron. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Serve! ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ "Periodic Elements" Valuable scientific data. Two proposed new additions to the periodic table (from Chemistry class)elements: Element Name: WOMAN Symbol: WO Atomic Weight: (don't even go there) Physical properties: Generally round in form. Boils at nothing and may freeze at any time. Melts whenever treated properly. Very bitter if mishandled. Chemical properties: Very active. Highly unstable. Possesses strong affinity with gold, silver, platinum, and precious stones. Volatile when left alone. Able to absorb great amounts of exotic food. Turns slightly green when placed next to a shinier specimen. Usage: Highly ornamental. An extremely good catalyst for dispersion of wealth. Probably the most powerful income reducing agent known. Caution: Highly explosive in inexperienced hands. Element Name: MAN Symbol: XY Atomic Weight: (180+/-50) Physical properties: Solid at room temperature, but gets bent out of shape easily. Fairly dense and sometimes flaky. Difficult to find a pure sample. Due to rust, aging samples are unable to conduct electricity as easily as young samples. Chemical properties: Attempts to bond with WO any chance it can get. Also tends to form strong bonds with itself. Becomes explosive when mixed with KD (Element: Child)for prolonged period of time. Neutralize by saturating with alcohol. Usage: None known. Possibly good methane source. Good specimens are able to produce large quantities on command. Caution: In the absence of WO, this element rapidly decomposes and begins to smell. ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ A little town in southern Illinois had a sensational birth rate, and scientists decided to visit the place and find out the cause. So the sociologists, anthropologists, birth control specialists and other concerned scientists moved to the town prepared to do a six-month study of the causes of the town's high birth rate. The day the research testing and all was to begin, the director of the million-dollar project stopped off at the single cafe in town and ordered coffee. When the waitress delivered his drink, the scientist detained her for a moment and asked, "Can you give me an idea why your town, above all others in this country, has such a high birth rate?" The waitress thought a moment, then said, "I think I can. You see, every morning at 5:30, the C&A Railroad comes through town and blows its big air horns at all three street crossings. That wakes up the folks here and, as you can guess, it's too darn late to go back to sleep and too darn early to get up."

______________________________________________________ A poem is never finished, only abandoned. --- Paul Valery (1871 - 1945) ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Four old timers were playing their weekly game of golf, and one remarked how for Christmas this year he'd love to wake up on Christmas morning, roll out of bed and without an argument go directly to the golf course, meet his buddies and play a round. His buddies all chimed in and said, "Let's do it! We'll make it a priority, figure out a way and meet here early, Christmas morning." Months later, that special morning arrives, and there they are on the golf course. The first guy says, "Boy this game cost me a fortune! I bought my wife such a diamond ring that she can't take her eyes off it." Number 2 guy says, "I spent a ton too. My wife is at home planning the cruise I gave her. She was up to her eyeballs in brochures." Number 3 guy says "Well my wife is at home admiring her new car, reading the manual." They all turned to the last guy in the group and he is staring at them like they have lost their minds. "I can't believe you all went to such expense for this golf game. I slapped my wife on the behind and said, 'Well babe, is it sex or golf?' and she said, "Take a sweater." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ >From Katie, apparently true occurrence: Here's a quote from a government employee who witnessed a recent interaction between an elderly woman and an antiwar protester in a Metro station in DC: There were protesters on the train platform handing out pamphlets on the evils of America. I politely declined to take one. An elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator and a young (twentyish) female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she politely declined. The young protester put her hand on the old woman's shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice said, "Lady, don't you care about the children of Syria?" The old woman looked up at her and said, "Honey, my father died in France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea, and a son in Vietnam. All three died so you could have the right to stand here and bad mouth our country. If you touch me again, I'll stick this umbrella up your stupid ass, and open it!" ______________________________________________________ Donegal, Ireland _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Seline Lizbeth Ayala, 23, Laredo, Texas Woman, 23, arrested after $2 million in liquid meth found in her car with 4-year-old A speeding driver’s suspicious behavior during a late night traffic stop tipped off officers that there might be more to the situation that meets the eye, so they called in a sniffer dog. Austin police say their K9 unit, Emma, arrived to the scene in the 5400 block of North Interstate 35 last Wednesday and alerted her handler to the presence of drugs in the vehicle. Officers searched the SUV and found three jugs of Purple Power degreaser. Except, police say those jugs contained about $2 million worth of liquid crystal methamphetamine (about 75 pounds) instead of degreaser. The driver, Seline Lizbeth Ayala, 23 of Laredo, was arrested and faces federal drug trafficking charges. Austin police say there was also a 4-year-old in the car as well. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Honor Re: Do Not Call registry Dear Webby, Do you happen to have among your famous facts, the information I need to get on the US 'don't call, don't email' list?

A woman went to see her lawyer, taking with her a baby and four children under the age of five. "I want a divorce," she said. "On what grounds?" he asked. "Desertion, sir," she said. "Desertion?" he asked, looking at the five young children. "Well," she confided, "he does come home every now and then to apologize."

Daily tip from Keep Pen Ink From Leaking in Your Purse A man was on his way home with a new car, which was absorbing all his attention, when it struck him that he had forgotten something. Twice he stopped, counted his parcels, searched his pockets, but finally decided he had everything with him. Yet the feeling persisted. When he reached home his daughter ran out, stopped short, and cried: "Daddy, where's Mommy?" ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ A Baptist preacher and his wife decided they needed a dog. Ever mindful of the congregation, they knew the dog must also be Baptist. They visited an expensive kennel and explained their needs to the manager, who assured them he had just the dog for them. The dog was produced and the manager said, "Fetch the Bible." The dog bounded to the bookshelf, scrutinized the books, located the Bible, and brought it to the manager. The manager then said "Find Psalms 23". The dog, showing marvelous dexterity with his paws, leafed thru the Bible, found the correct passage, and pointed to it with his paw. Duly impressed, the couple purchased the dog. That evening a group of parishioners came to visit. The preacher and his wife began to show off the dog, having him locate several Bible verses. The visitors were amazed. Finally, one man asked, "Can he do normal dog tricks too?" "Let's see" said the preacher. Pointing his finger at the dog, he commanded "Heel!" The dog immediately jumped up on a chair, placed one paw on the preacher's forehead and began to howl. The preacher turned to his wife and exclaimed "Good grief, we've bought a Pentecostal dog!" ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ The surrogate and the photographer The Heberts were unable to conceive children, and decided to use a surrogate father to start their family. On the day the proxy father was to arrive, Mr. Hebert kissed his wife and said, "I'm off. The man should be here soon". Half an hour later, just by chance, a door-to-door baby photographer rang the doorbell, hoping to make a sale. Good morning madam. I've come to...." "Oh, no need to explain. Come in," Mrs. Hebert cut in. "Really?" the photographer asked. "Well, good! My specialty is babies." "That's what my husband and I had hoped. Please come in and have a seat." After a moment she asked, blushing, "Well, where do we start?" Photographer - "Leave everything to me. I usually try two in the bathtub, one on the couch and perhaps a couple on the bed. Sometimes the living room floor is fun too. You can really spread out!" Wife - "Bathtub, couch, bed, living room floor? No wonder it didn't work for my husband and me." Photographer - "Well, madam, none of us can guarantee a good one every time. But! if we try several different positions and I shoot from six or seven angles, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results." Wife - "My, my, that's a lot of...." Photographer - "Madam, in my line of work, a man must take his time. I'd love to be in and out in five minutes, but you'd be disappointed with that, I'm sure." (Wife muttering)- "Don't I know it." The photographer opened his briefcase and pulled out a portfolio of his baby pictures. "This was done on the top of a bus." Wife - "Oh my goodness!" Photographer - "And these twins turned out exceptionally well, when you consider their mother was so difficult to work with." Wife - "She was difficult?" Photographer - "Yes, I'm afraid so. I finally had to take her to the park to get the job done right. People were crowding around four and five deep, pushing to get a good look." Wife - "Four and five deep?" (eyes wide in amazement). Photographer - "Yes, and for more than three hours, too. The mother was constantly squealing and yelling - I could hardly concentrate! Then darkness approached and I began to rush my shots. Finally, when the squirrels began nibbling on my equipment, I just packed it all in." Wife (leaning forward) - "You mean they actually chewed on" Photographer - "That's right. Well, madam, if you're ready, I'll set up my tripod so that we can get to work." Wife - "Tripod?" photographer - "Oh yes, I have to use a tripod to rest my Canon on. It's much too big for me to hold very long. Madam? Madam? Good Lord, she's fainted!"

______________________________________________________ Thanks to Moe for reporting this one: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Susan Kettell, 39, Sandwich, Massawhosits Woman arrested for drunken, topless road-rage assault A woman in Massachusetts is facing several felony charges after allegedly waving a dagger at another driver while topless in an apparent drunken road-rage attack. Susan Kettell, 39, of Sandwich, was driving a blue Ford Explorer on Saturday when police received a call from another driver who claimed the woman tried to crash into the victim’s car. Kettell then pulled behind the victim’s vehicle at a red light and began waving a double-edged dagger, the Sandwich Police Department announced Monday. Kettell then allegedly got out of the Explorer and ripped off her shirt before running bare-chested toward the victim’s car while flailing the knife. The caller who contacted police, meanwhile, drove off, police said. Kettell, who police say was intoxicated at the time, was later found and placed under arrest. A male passenger inside her car was also intoxicated and was placed in protective custody, police said. Kettel was charged with operating under the influence, operating on a revoked driver’s license, assault with a dangerous weapon and other charges, police said. No injuries were reported.

A newly married sailor was informed by the navy that he was going to be stationed a long way from home on a remote island in the Pacific for a year. A few weeks after he got there he began to miss his new wife, so he wrote her a letter. "My love," he wrote " we are going to be apart for a very long time. Already I'm starting to miss you and there's really not much to do here in the evenings. Besides that we're constantly surrounded by young attractive native girls. Do you think if I had a hobby of some kind I would not be so tempted? " So his wife sent him back a harmonica saying, "why don't you learn to play this?" Eventually his tour of duty came to an end and he rushed back to his wife. "Darling" he said, "I can't wait to get you into bed so that we make passionate love!" "First let's see you play that harmonica!"

But first he must find a job. He walks into the MacMillan-Bloedel office and fills out an application as an "Experienced logger." It's his lucky day. They just happen to be looking for someone. But first, the bush foreman takes him for a ride in the bush in the company pickup truck to see how much he knows. The foreman stops the truck on the side of the road and points at a tree. "See that tree over there? I want you to tell me what species it is and how many board feet of lumber it contains." The Newfie promptly answers, "It's a Sitka Spruce and contains 383 board feet of lumber." The foreman is impressed. He puts the truck in motion and stops again about a mile down the road. He points at another tree through the passenger door window. He asks the same question. This time, it's a bigger tree of a different class. "It's a Douglas Fir, it has 690 board feet." says the Newfie. Now the foreman is really impressed. The Newfie has answered quickly and got the answers right without even using a calculator! One more test. They drive a little farther down the road, and the foreman stops again. This time, he points across the road through his driver side window. "And what about that one?" Before the foreman finishes pointing, the Newfie says, "A Yellow cedar,242 board feet." The foreman spins the truck around and heads back to the office. He's a little annoyrf because he thinks that the Newfie is smarter than he is. As they near the office, the foreman stops the truck, and asks the Newfie to step outside. He hands him a piece of chalk and tells him, "See that tree over there. I want you to mark an X on the front of that tree." The foreman thinks to himself, "Idiot! How does he know which is the front of the tree? " When the Newfie reaches the tree, he goes around it in a circle while looking at the ground. He then reaches up and places a white X on the trunk. He comes back to the foreman and hands him the chalk. "That is the front of the tree," the Newfie states. The foreman laughs to himself and asks sarcastically, "How in the heck do you know that's the front of the tree?" The Newfie looks down at his feet, while moving the toe of his left boot clockwise in the gravel, replies, "Cuz someone used the back side for an outhouse." He got the job!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"I love your freckles. When I was a little girl I always wanted freckles," she said, while tracing her finger across the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful." The boy looked up, "Really?" "Of course," said the grandmother. "Why just name me one thing that's prettier than freckles."

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

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

Daily tip from Clean Bathtub with Powdered Dish Detergent By Lynn [6 Posts, 2 Comments] When your bathtub really gets grimy looking and the bathroom cleaners don't seem to be working, try a scrubby sponge and a bit of powder dish washer soap.

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

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

Then the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch before the girl spoke again. "Another penny for your thoughts, Angus." The young man glanced down with a furled brow. "Well, noo," he said, "my thoughts are a wee bit more serious this time." "Really?" said the girl in a whisper, filled with anticipation. "Aye," said the lad, nodding. The girl looked away in shyness, began to blush, and bit her lip in anticipation of the ultimate request.

____________________________________________________ After living in the remote wilderness of Kentucky all his life, an old hillbilly decided it was time to visit the big city. In one of the stores he picked up a mirror and looked in it. Not ever having seen one before, he remarked at the image staring back at him, "How about that! Here's a picture of my daddy." He bought the 'picture', but on the way home he remembered his wife, Lizzy, didn't like his father. So he hung it in the barn, and every morning before leaving for the fields, he would go there and look at it. Lizzy began to get suspicious of these many trips to the barn. One day after her husband left, she searched the barn and found the mirror. As she looked into the glass, she fumed, "So that's the ugly old hussy he's runnin' around with! At least he could find a better looking one!"

The year is 2025 and the United States of America has recently elected the first woman as well as an openly Jewish President, a Susan Vineberg. So the President elect calls up her mother a few weeks after election day and says, "So ma, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?" "I don't think so. It's a ten hour drive, and your father isn't as young as he used to be, and my gout is acting up again." "Don't worry about it Mom, I'll send Air Force One to pick you up and take you home. And a limousine will pick you up at your door." "I don't know. Everybody will be so fancy, I don't know what on Earth I would wear." "Oh mom," replies Susan, "don't worry about it.

The President-to-be responds, "Don't worry Mom. The entire affair is going to be handled by the best caterer in New York, kosher all the way. Mom, I want you to come." So Mom agrees and on January 21, 2025, Susan Vineberg is being sworn in as President of the United States of America. In the front row sits the new President's mother, who leans over to a Senator sitting next to her and says, "You see that woman over there with her hand on the Bible, becoming President of the United States?" The Senator whispers back, "Yes I do." "Her brother's a doctor."

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

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

Good Morning, ,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Daily tip from Making a Borax and Honey Ant Trap By Robyn [548 Posts, 936 Comments] Sugar ants come around the kitchen and other places looking for sweet stuff to eat. Other kinds of ants follow too but I generally call them sugar ants. Here is how to make a trap to put on the counter. Supplies: 1 tsp 20 Mule Team borax* 2 cups hot water 5 Tbsp honey folded paper towel empty plastic container *Borax is an natural laundry boosting powder available in the laundry section of the store, normally on the top shelf. Steps: Dissolve the borax in hot water. Stir in the honey. Dip the folded paper towel in the solution until it is soaked completely. Press the wet paper towel in the empty plastic applesauce container. Place in a location where you have seen the ants. This bait will be eaten by the ants and taken back to the nest and will then kill the entire nest. Keep away from children by placing on a countertop where they can't reach it. ____________________________________________________
Alone in the Wilderness Part 1
____________________________________________________ A man goes into a pet shop and tells the owner that he wants to buy a pet that can do everything. The shop owner suggests a faithful dog. The man replies, "Come on, a dog?" The owner says, "How about a cat?" The man replies, "No way! A cat certainly can't do everything. I want a pet that can do everything!" The shop owner thinks for a minute, then says, "I've got it! A centipede!" The man says, "A centipede? I can't imagine a centipede doing everything, but okay... I'll try a centipede." He gets the centipede home and says to the centipede, "Clean the kitchen." Thirty minutes later, he walks into the kitchen and... it's immaculate! All the dishes and silverware have been washed, dried, and put away; the counter-tops cleaned; the appliances sparkling; the floor waxed. He's absolutely amazed. He says to the centipede, "Go clean the living room." Twenty minutes later, he walks into the living room. The carpet has been vacuumed; the furniture cleaned and dusted; the pillows on the sofa plumped; plants watered. The man thinks to himself, "This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. This really is a pet that can do everything!" Next he says to the centipede, "Run down to the corner and get me a newspaper." The centipede walks out the door. 10 minutes centipede. 20 minutes later... no centipede. 30 minutes centipede. By this point the man is wondering what's going on. So he goes to the front door, opens it... and there's the centipede sitting right outside. The man says, "Hey!! I sent you down to the corner store 45 minutes ago to get me a newspaper. What's the matter?!" The centipede says, "I'm goin'! I'm goin'! I'm just putting on my shoes and my skates!" ___________________________________________________

On the man's second attempt, he was punched square in the jaw by an irate grandmother and knocked around a bit, then thrown to the end of the line again. As he got up the second time, he said to the person at the end of the line: "That does it! If they hit me one more time, I won't open the store!"

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

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

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

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

She is thunderstruck when she sees a huge wave crash over him. Because when it recedes, the boy is no longer there - vanished! Screaming, she holds her hands to the sky and cries, "Lord, how could you? Have I not been a wonderful mother and grandmother? Have I not scrimped and save so I could tithe to the Temple and contribute to B'nai Brith? Have I not always put others before myself? Have I not always turned my other cheek and loved my neighbors, have I not ...?" A deep loud voice from the sky interrupts, "Enough already, give me a break!'" Immediately another huge wave appears and crashes on the beach. And when it recedes, the boy is standing there, smiling, splashing around as if nothing ever happened. The deep loud voice continues, "I have returned your grandson. Are you satisfied?" Grandmother responds, "He had a hat."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Leigh Ann Sepelyak, 38, Penn Hills, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania woman set boyfriend on fire then put out flames with urine Leigh Ann Sepelyak, 38, reportedly got into an argument with her boyfriend Grady Spencer III on Saturday evening. Police officers in Penn Hills, Pennsylvania, say that when Spencer fell asleep, Sepelyak doused him with petrol and ignited the fire with a lit cigarette. She then allegedly used a bucket of urine – which they had been using as a toilet – to put the fire out, Fox8 reports. Spencer was rushed to hospital for treatment after Sepelyak’s parents, who live in the same house, heard his screaming. The parents, when they heard screaming and smelled the smoke, helped put him out – I think with the same urine – and went to the hospital, Penn Hills Police Chief Howard Burton said. They never called the police, the hospital called [us]. Spencer suffered burns on 25% to 35% of his lower body. Sepelyak has now been charged with attempted homicide and arson charges. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Annoying Pop-ups Dear Webby, Dear Webby, Again, an annoying, but not serious problem.

Add ahi tuna fish, add chili with black bean, sesame oil and using your chopsticks stir fry for about 7 minutes and cover the lid for 3 minutes. Now for your wrap - we used tortilla wrap, shredded lettuce, quinoa which is optional and ketchup and Sriracha, mixed and featuring main ingredient ahi tuna cubes. ____________________________________________________
the episode that made us all cry - Goodbye
____________________________________________________ Thanks to Sandie for this one: You Don't have To Own A Cat To Appreciate This One A couple was dressed and ready to go out for the evening. They turned, on a night light, turned the answering machine on the phone line, covered their pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. They phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and the couple opened the front door to leave their house. The cat they had put out into the yard scooted back into the house. They didn't want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird. The wife goes out to the taxi while the husband goes inside to get the cat. The cat runs upstairs, the man in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, the wife doesn't want the driver to know the house will be empty for the night. She explains to the taxi driver that her husband will be out soon "He's just going upstairs to say good-bye to my mother." A few minutes later, the husband gets into the cab. "Sorry I took so long," he says, as they drive away. "Stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. Had to poke her with a wet mop to get her to come out! She tried to take off so I grabbed her by the neck. Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked. I managed to haul the fat ninny downstairs and throw her out into the back yard!" The cab driver hit a parked car. ___________________________________________________
Stolen Beauty of the Chin Girls
___________________________________________________ Arnold and his wife were cleaning out the attic one day when he came across a ticket from the local shoe repair shop. The date stamped on the ticket showed that it was over eleven years old. They both laughed and tried to remember which of them might have forgotten to pick up a pair of shoes over a decade ago. "Do you think the shoes will still be in the shop?" Arnold asked. "Not very likely," his wife said. "It's worth a try," Arnold said, pocketing the ticket. He went downstairs, hopped into the car, and drove to the store. With a straight face, he handed the ticket to the man behind the counter. With a face just as straight, the man said, "Just a minute. I'll have to look for these." He disappeared into a dark corner at the back of the shop. Two minutes later, the man called out, "Here they are!" "No kidding?" Arnold called back. "That's terrific! Who would have thought they'd still be here after all this time." The man came back to the counter, empty-handed. "They'll be ready Thursday," he said calmly.

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