Nothing shocks me.

After chatting them up awhile, the conversation turned to what we did in the service. When we told them we were in the infantry, the girls seemed very impressed, giving us big smiles as they told us how sweet that was. Since infantry and sweet are seldom used in the same sentence, I was a little confused. Until, that is, one of the girls said, "We admire any man who works with infants." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized. "Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon,a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub." "Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup." "No." said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?" ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD AND a Darwin Award has been earned by Egidius Schiffer Bochum, Germany Serial killer accidentally kills himself while ‘masturbating with electricity’ in cell A serial killer jailed for the murder of five women has been found dead in his cell after hooking up an electric current to his nipples and penis. Egidius Schiffer, dubbed the Aechen Strangler, is believed to have killed himself accidentally whilst masturbating with electric shocks at Bochum Prison in Germany. He was found dead on Sunday with a table lamp chord attached to his body parts while the other end was plugged into an electric socket. Schiffer murdered five hitchhikers between 1983 and 1990 and was sentenced to life imprisonment, according to The Times. A Bochum Prison spokeswoman Candida Tunkel said: ‘He removed a cable from his bedside table lamp, then wound it around his nipples and his penis and stuck the end in a power socket.’ Schiffer died from heart failure after an electric current flowed through his chest and his death was likely the result of an accident ‘rather than a suicidal incident’, officials said. He was being held in solitary confinement and last seen alive at 1pm on Saturday. Schiffer was jailed 18 years after his last murder after DNA evidence linked him to the killing in 2008. He was caught because he had given a DNA sample to police after being suspected of stealing scrap metal. His five victims were all women, aged between 15 and 31, and he had raped three of them. ------------ Knowing electricity, I would say he must have had some help. Unlike the Direct Current used in tasers, household current is Alternating Current, which does not paralyze. It would have made him jump like the proverbial African Magician and would have torn the wires off his body just from involuntary movements. You have probably seen all the belts and straps used on Electric Chairs, because of the involuntary movements due to Alternating Current. He would have had to have a bunch of people sitting on him, to be still for the 5 seconds required to stop his heart. Well, it makes no difference. He is in hell now.

A clergyman, walking down a country lane, sees a young farmer struggling to load hay back onto a cart after it had fallen off. "You look hot, my son," said the cleric. "Why don't you rest a moment, and I'll give you a hand." "No thanks," said the young man. "My father wouldn't like it." "Don't be silly," the minister said. "Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water." Again the young man protested that his father would be upset. Losing his patience, the clergyman said, "Your father must be a real slave driver.

A tenderfoot scout is on his first camping trip. As soon as he has pitched his tent, he goes for a hike in the woods. In about 15 minutes, however, he rushes back into camp, bruised, bleeding and disheveled. "What happened?" asks his patrol leader. "I was chased by a black snake," the frightened boy cries. The older boy smiles. "A black snake isn't deadly," he says "Hey," the tenderfoot groans. "If it can make you jump off a 150-foot cliff, it is." ____________________________________________________

Safaa Boular, 18, hid her Islamic State-inspired plans in coded conversations about preparations for an innocent Mad Hatter’s tea party. She today became the final member of Britain’s first all-woman terror cell to be sentenced at the Old Bailey. Boular was sitting her GCSEs when she was seduced online by IS fighter Naweed Hussain, who was originally from Coventry. After she was stopped from joining the 32-year- old in Syria, she discussed a grenade and gun attack on the British Museum instead. Their plans were uncovered by online MI5 role-players and the Boular family home in Vauxhall, south London, was bugged. Boular’s resolve was strengthened when she learned Hussain had been killed in a drone strike in early April last year. While in custody for trying to travel to the war zone, she passed the baton to her older sibling Rizlaine. In coded telephone calls, they discussed a traditional English tea party with an Alice in Wonderland theme, the trial heard. Rizlaine Boular then set about arming herself and looking at targets around the Palace Of Westminster. She was helped by her mother Mina Dich, unaware they were being watched by counter-terrorism police. The older sister shared her plans with her friend Khawla Barghouthi, 21, and even practiced the knife attack at her home in Willesden, north-west London. Rizlaine, 22, was shot when armed police moved in to arrest the gang on 27 April last year but made a full recovery. She was jailed for life with a minimum term of 16 years, having admitted preparing acts of terrorism. Dich, 44, from Vauxhall Cross, south London, was jailed for six years and nine months with an additional five years on licence for helping her. UK Barghouthi, who pleaded guilty to failing to alert authorities, was jailed for two years and four months. Following a trial Safaa Boular was found guilty of two counts of preparing terrorist acts. She was today jailed for life with a minimum of 13 years.
Tech Support Pits From Kelly Re: Lights for digital camera Dear Webby, What kinds of lights should I get for taking mixed indoor and outdoor pictures with my digital camera? Thanks Kelly Dear Kelly When mixing indoor and outdoor, as in taking a picture out through an archway or a window or door towards scenery, you need very powerful lights. 1000 Watt, yes one thousand Watt Quartz construction lights work best. They usually come with an adjustable swivel mount and a huge alligator clamp to attach it to just about anything. Put a regular 1500 Watt dimmer switch and outlet into a dual outlet box for exterior usage at the end of an extension cord. The exterior outlet boxes not only make it usable outside, they have smooth corners and don't tear up your equipment case. 1000 Watts might seem like an awful lot, but there will be times when you wish you had two of them.

A Shelby County cyclist broke into a home and started washing his clothes after his bike tire went flat. Shelby County Sheriff's Office arrested Bethel Bailey, 54, and charged him with aggravated burglary for what happened August 1 in Arlington. A woman arrived home at around 6 a.m. Wednesday to find a man standing in her hallway with one of her blankets wrapped around his naked body. She immediately called 911. Deputies arrived and identified Bailey as the man inside the home. Bailey told deputies he arrived at the home around 11 p.m. the night before. He said he was out cycling when his tire went flat. He knocked on the front door of the house, but nobody answered. So he went around to the back of the house and got inside the home when he learned the back door was unlocked. Bailey said he just wanted a ride home. So he decided to wait for the homeowner to return. While he waited, he helped himself to a few beers, a ham sandwich, and some cookies. He then decided to start washing his clothes. He said that's why he was naked when the homeowner arrived. Bailey was arrested and issued a $6,000 bond.
Tech Support Pits From: Eddie Re: POST beep decoder Hi Mr Webby; Can you please tell me if this card is worth buying? Eddie POST PROBE PCI CARD Dear Eddie That's just an old-fashioned POST (Power On Self Test) beep decoder. In the days when components were still repaired, some people used the beep decoders. For example, with an IBM 3270, (before the PC), 3 long beeps signalled keyboard problems, usually a stuck key. "Hmmm, sounds like you have been eating at your desk again!" Turning the keyboard upside down and whacking it on the desk hard enough that all the rest of the cube dwellers popped up like gophers, usually fixed THAT problem. A long and a two short beeps indicated problems with the CGA video card on early IBM PC's and Canon XT's. Usually that problem was due to the video card creeping part way out of it's slot from heating and cooling. That called for "Percussive Maintenance". Lift the computer 10 inches and drop it onto the desk. "There, Ma'am. Should work fine now. Call me when it does it again." And so on. In those days, a good troubleshooter had all the POST code beeps memorized. Since then, things have gotten a bit simpler. Nowadays you see the post code numbers on the screen, or get 4 beeps, if there is a problem with the video card. If re-seating all the cards and memory doesn't help, and the "power-good" LED on the motherboard is lit up, you just start pulling and/or exchanging cards until you got the one that was causing the problem. If that doesn't help, replace the motherboard. If the problem is the power supply, you can tell by the sound of the power supply fan, or lack thereof. You can read about the POST beep codes at http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml however, that beep decoder is more of a nostalgia item than a modern troubleshooter's tool.

_____________________________________________________ A little boy and girl are playing in a sandbox. The little boy has to go to take a pee and he was told by his mother to always be polite and don't talk about private matters in public. At first he holds it in for a little while because he does not know what to say to the little girl to excuse himself. Then he remembers what his Mom had said at the restaurant to excuse herself from the table. So he turns to the little girl and says "Will you excuse me I have to go powder my nose". And saying that he leaps out of the sandbox and runs to the washroom. When he comes back the little girl looks up at him and asks "Did you powder your nose?" "Yes" said the little boy stepping back into the sandbox. "Well then" says the little girl, "You'd better close your purse because your lipstick is hanging out." ___________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Chloe Wright, 25, Taunton, Massachusetts Left wing extremist, chases down, rams car over Trump bumper sticker A Massachusetts man recently told police that earlier this week he was stopped at a red light when a woman pulled up behind him and began honking her horn in a belligerent manner. Then things really got crazy. He stated the driver then followed him down another road, still honking the horn and now screaming at him. And if you think things couldn’t get any nuttier, you’d be oh so wrong. They actually got worse. Way worse. “I could hear her screaming out of the car or something, so I’m like, ‘Man, maybe something’s wrong with my car,’” said the man identified by WBZ-TV only as “Brendan” for his safety. Well, apparently there was something wrong with his car — affixed upon it is a bumper sticker supporting President Donald Trump with his campaign slogan, “Make American Great Again.” Brendan added to the station that “the first thing she said when I came out of the car was, ‘Did you vote for Trump?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, what of it?’” With that, he told WBZ, the driver yelled, “You’re racist!” along with “a bunch of cuss words” coming at him “nonstop.” But that wasn’t the worst of it. Brendan recorded video of the incident as the driver first allegedly hit the back of his car then clipped his open door, missing him by inches, WBZ said. “Her tire was right next to my foot,” Brendan recalled to the station. “That could have ended really bad.” The driver promptly fled the scene when she noticed she was on video, however the video taken of the incident captured the vehicle’s license plate number, which was then traced to Chloe Wright of Taunton. Wright was arrested by authorities a month later on Monday and she has plead not guilty to a charge of assault with a deadly weapon. She will also be facing charges of vandalizing property and fleeing the scene of property damage. The woman was released on $1,250 bail and has been ordered to stay away from the victim.
Tech Support Pits From: Almira Re: Further into the dark Dear Webby I need to take pictures of graduates from a course that I teach. The last ones were a disaster. The flash does not light up the second and third row, and without a flash, the overhead lights are too dim and make the faces look haggard. I remember you occasionally making strong statements against the use of flash, but I forgot what alternatives you recommended. Can you please tell me again? Thanks Almira Dear Almira Go to Home Depot or a similar construction supplier, and get yourself one or two 500 W or 1000 W Quartz work lights. They are in rectangular cast aluminum fixtures just like yard and security lights, but have a much brighter lamp in it, and a safety grill in front of the glass. You can get them with a big alligator clamp to clip them onto a stepladder, or with a bright yellow tripod. Most photographers take that tripod out into the back alley and use a can of black barbecue paint to give it an expensive and professional look. However, that is a stupid idea. It just causes people to trip over the tripod legs. There is a good reason why it is bright yellow. Position the light a bit to the side of your spot and closer to the group or podium. Put your camera on a tripod and make sure that the light is just barely outside your cone of view. The older the crowd, the lower down the light should be. A knee high spotlight hides more wrinkles than a pound of make-up spackled on, but make sure the light is a bit to the side and not straight in front of your camera. Set the camera for 1/30 second or if it is an automatic, use the symbol of a person with a star above the head. To take the picture, hold up a manual flash with your left hand and set it off. Click the camera a second later, when they just start to relax, but before they let their chests fall back down into their drawers. It would be a good idea to take some test pictures beforehand. Absolutely REFUSE to take pictures if tehre is a white background. Pictures will turn out crappy with the faces all looking haggard. Background should be as black as possible. Also tell the people to NOT wear white. Cameras tend to average brightness, and white dresses cause dark and haggard faces in group pictures. Have FUN DearWebby

A flight attendant was on the red-eye to Manila when a water leak developed in the galley, which eventually soaked the carpet throughout the cabin of the 747. A very sleepy passenger who had become aware of the dampness asked the attendant, "Has it been raining?" Keeping a straight face, the attendant replied, "Yes, but we put the top up." With a sigh of relief, the passenger went back to sleep.

I had given our daughter, who was 15 at the time, a drivers manual. On the way to town one day, I was coaching her as I drove. I told her to be studying her book so as to be ready when it came time to get her driver's permit. "Oh, she said, "I already know everything in the book." "You do?" I returned. "Yep," she said, very smugly. I thought, "OK, I'll give her a hard one." So I asked her, "How many feet does it take to stop the car if you are driving 60 miles an hour and have to slam on the brakes real hard?" "One," she replied. "What?" I asked. "One?!" She repeated her answer and then because of the confused look on my face, she added, "One, Mom. You always told me never to use my left foot on the brakes, only use my right one." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Air Out the House With summer here, open up windows when you use caustic cleaners.

In one situation, he was waiting at a taxi stand outside the railway station in Paris. When a taxi pulled up, he placed his suitcase in the car and took a seat next to it. "Where can I take you, Mr. Doyle?'' asked the taxi driver. Doyle was flabbergasted. He asked the driver whether he knew him by sight. "No, sir, I have never seen you before." The puzzled Doyle asked him how he knew he was Conan Doyle. The driver said, "This morning's paper had a story about you being on vacation in Marseilles. This is the taxi stand where people who return from Marseilles always come. Your skin color tells me you have been on vacation. The ink spot on your right index finger suggests to me that you're a writer. Your clothing is very English, and not French. And so, I deduced that you are Sir Arthur Conan Doyle." Doyle remarked, "This is truly amazing. You are a real life counterpart to my fictional creation, Sherlock Holmes." "There is one other thing that gave you away," the driver said, after pocketing his tip. "What is that?" questioned Doyle.

State police said Shyann Hills and Jayako Frye were watching a 7-year-old and a 9-year-old for six days. In that time, troopers said the couple tied the kids up, and they wouldn’t let the children eat, sleep, or even use the bathroom. Troopers took Hills and Frye into custody from their trailer on Crimson Maple Drive in Rome. They face a slew of charges, including aggravated assault. The two children needed to be hospitalized after the abuse they endured. Neighbors were shocked to hear the news. “It’s hard to believe, actually. I’ve seen them, and I can’t believe it happened, actually,” Tammy Vanderpol told WNEP. State police said the couple forced the young kids to lie down in a planking position with sharp nails underneath them, so if the kids went down, they would fall onto the nails. Troopers said Hills and Frye also tied the kids to a dog cage and a cabinet. The couple also forced other children to hit the victims while they were restrained. “They should get the same treatment if not worse. That’s just nasty,” Vanderpol said. Hills and Frye are both locked up in the Bradford County jail, Hills on a $500,000 bail and Frye on $750,000.
Tech Support Pits From: Fred Re: Making a picture larger Dear Webby, I have a digital picture that measures 548 x411 pixels but the company requires a minimum of 700 x 500. Would you please advise me how to increase the pixel size. Thank you, Fred Dear Fred Any graphics program will do that, even Windows Paint, though that is really scraping the bottom of the barrel. First increase the color depth to 16 Million. Then soften the contrast just slightly, about 2 - 3 %. Next, increase the picture size to what you need. And finally, sharpen the contrast 6 - 10%. If picture quality is not that important, you can skip the softening and sharpening. Have FUN DearWebby

Thanks to Kati for bringing back this classic: He had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid to come down. The Pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc. The kitty would not come down. The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the Pastor decided that if he tied a rope to his car and pulled it until the tree bent down, he could then reach up and get the kitten. That's what he did, all the while checking his progress in the car. He then figured if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him to reach the kitten. But as he moved the car a little further forward, the rope broke. The tree went "boing!" and the kitten instantly sailed through the air - out of sight. The Pastor felt terrible. He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if they'd seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray kitten So he prayed, "Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping," and went on about his business. A few days later he was at the grocery store, and met one of his church members. He happened to look into her s hopping cart and was amazed to see cat food. This woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, "Why are you buying cat food when you hate cats so much?" She replied, "You won't believe this," and then told him how her little girl had been begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days before, the child had begged again, so the Mom finally told her little girl, "Well, if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it." She told the Pastor, "I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won't believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes. A kitten suddenly came flying out of the blue sky, with its paws outspread, and landed right in her lap. She has not let off holding and petting and smooching the kitten."

The flowers were even beginning to bloom! The friend asked, "How did you get your neighbor to keep his hens in his own yard?" Doggins said, "Easy!

On July 22, police responded to a Circle K on Normandy Blvd. in reference to an armed robbery. Related Headlines Cases of hand, foot, and mouth disease on the rise, local doctor says Ex-husband of murder suspect knew she was using alias New law forces some Florida gun owners to surrender weapons According to a police report released by JSO, Hutchinson walked into the gas station and pointed a gun at the cashier, waving it around several times. The report says the cashier gave Hutchinson about $50 to $70 cash and that she set the gun on the counter when receiving the money. The manager of the business gave police surveillance video showing Hutchinson getting out of the passenger side of a gray Kia and later getting back into the vehicle. Witnesses described the robber as a white female, about 5 feet 6 inches tall, 110 pounds, with dark brown hair, wearing a hat and sunglasses, appearing to be in her mid- 40's and wearing a blue jacket and black legging pants with holes in them. The man stated it looked like she "previously had acne on her face and was a drug addict." The report says the vehicle appeared to have damage on the front of the hood and right fender. On Sunday, July 27, an officer patrolling the area of Cahoon Rd. and W Ramona Blvd. saw a vehicle matching that description, the report says. The officer said the damage to the hood and right fender was very distinguishable, and recognized the vehicle from the multiple robberies. The officer notified other units and conducted a traffic stop. According to the report, all occupants were detained. The report says it should be noted that Hutchinson was detained wearing the same black leggings worn in the Circle K robbery, as seen on surveillance, and that they had a very distinctive design. Hutchinson was arrested and charged for the armed robbery at the Circle K, and the other two people from the vehicle were arrested on local charges, the report says.

You can attach the metal lids to the underside of a shelf, the jars can then hang from the shelf and be seen easily. When I was living in a hastily built cabin in the Yukon while building a new house, after the other one had burned down, I used a similar system. I trimmed a small log to took like a 6-sided banister post, and suspended it between two "L" brackets with a big screw in each end. Each of the six sides held a different group of items, and I could just turn it to whichever side I needed. It was like a horizontal "Lazy Susan". Have FUN!

The case was dismissed for lack of testimony. ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Timothy Magruder, 18, Jacksonville, Florida Unlicensed Florida teen leads police on chase, crashes after hitting a pothole An 18-year-old man led the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office on a chase that ended when he fled and hid on top of a metal shed, police said in a report. Timothy Magruder, 18, is facing multiple charges after the July 17 incident. JSO said Magruder was spotted driving at a high rate of speed in a 1995 Lincoln Town Car on Rayford Street. Magruder nearly crashed the big sedan while trying to turn onto Day Ave., JSO said. During a police chase, Magruder kept driving faster, JSO said, until he finally hit a pothole and crashed into a tree. Magruder ran, JSO said, and briefly got away by hiding on top of a metal shed. With the aid of a police K-9, Magruder was quickly located and arrested. The suspect told JSO that he believed he broke his leg when he crashed the car. He also had cuts on his hands from the metal shed and was noticeably bleeding, the report said. Magruder had crack cocaine on him, the report said. He was charged with drug possession, reckless driving and resisting arrest. Magruder, who had two other teenagers with him in the car that crashed, has never been issued a valid Florida driver's license, the report said. The report did not specify where the car had been stolen.

Open the crumb catch tray, making sure you open it over a garbage can or outside to avoid getting crumbs everywhere. To get it super clean, you can use some compressed air like you use for cleaning inside of electronic device. Never clean the inside with water. Do NOT use canned compressed air! Don't even allow it anywhere near your home! Kids inhale it to get stoned, and hundreds a year die from that. If you think you need to shoot petrified bread crumbs into your eyes and down your cleavage, use a tire pump or electric air compressor. However, unless you have weird fetishes like putting runny jam onto your toast before putting it into the toaster, it's enough to turn it upside down over your bird feeder or sidewalk, and slapping it a few times. If the neighbors are watching, tell them that your toaster is haunted and has been misbehaving. Have FUN! DearWebby Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________

The now former Kenilworth schools superintendent accused of repeatedly pooping at a high school track near his home has notified Holmdel police he plans to file a lawsuit over the mug shot taken after his arrest, according legal documents filed by his attorney. Thomas Tramaglini claims Holmdel police should not have photographed him at police headquarters because the public defecation, lewdness and litter charges, which remain pending, were low-level municipal offenses. "It’s like getting photographed and fingerprinted for a speeding ticket," his attorney Matthew Adams said in an email to NJ Advance Media. "On May 1, 2018, officers or agents of the Holmdel Police Department unlawfully took Dr. Tramaglini's photograph and distributed and disseminated the 'mug shot' to third parties, including the media with the intent to harm Dr. Tramaglini," according the court filing. The filing, known as a tort claim notice, by Tramgalini is a required legal step in advance of a full lawsuit. It lists potential damages of more than $1 million due to loss of income, harm to his reputation, emotional distress and invasion of privacy. “It is our position that the photograph that has been widely disseminated was unlawfully taken and maliciously distributed,” Adams said in a phone interview Friday. The Kenilworth board of education announced Thursday that it had accepted Tramaglini's resignation from his superintendent job, which paid $147,500 annually plus a potential bonus. He also made $5,700 per semester as a part-time lecturer at Rutgers University, according to his legal filing. Tramaglini, 42, of Aberdeen, was arrested at 5:50 a.m. on May 1 at the Holmdel High School track.

He also made $5,700 per semester as a part-time lecturer at Rutgers University, according to his legal filing. Tramaglini, 42, of Aberdeen, was arrested at 5:50 a.m. on May 1 at the Holmdel High School track. Police began monitoring the track, which is about three miles from Tramaglini's townhouse, after receiving reports of human feces being found daily, authorities said. Officials were soon able to identify Tramaglini as the person responsible for defecating on the track, according to Holmdel police. According to the arrest report, there are two DVDs with surveillance video footage. Tramaglini made a first appearance in court June 12 and has since pleaded not guilty. He is due back in Holmdel municipal court at 11 a.m. on Aug. 13. Tramaglini had been on paid leave from his superintendent job since his arrest. The Kenilworth board of education accepted Tramaglini's resignation on Thursday. An email and voicemail sent by the board of education to staff that evening said his resignation is effective Sept. 30. He was hired in February 2016.

Allow the faucet to soak in the vinegar for a couple of hours. When you remove the bag, the deposits should be gone. Repeat if necessary. The ends of cucumbers work quite well too. I have afaucet that leaks a tiny bit where it swivels, and produces a white calcium stain from our very hard water. Putting an end of a cucumber on that stain makes it disappear overneight. For tap stems and fixtures you can rip an old t-shirt into strips and wrap them tightly around the fixtures, then soak them with vinegar. After an hour you can undo the strips and use them to polish off what mineralization remains. Plain white vinegar works just fine. Have FUN!

Police were summoned to a McDonald’s in Nashville due to a “male subject who was locked in the womens restroom naked,” according to a court affidavit. Restaurant management reported that the man had “been there all day.” A patrolman reported encountering Brody Young, 25, in the bathroom. Young, the cop added, “was indeed naked.” Young, seen at right, was “erratic and doing jumping jacks and hitting the wall,” reported the cop, who noted a strong chemical odor in the bathroom, evidence that the intoxicated Young had likely been huffing. Deemed a “danger to himself and others,” Young was taken into custody and charged with several misdemeanors. “Mr. Young has priors for huffing,” the affidavit states. During a court appearance this morning, Young pleaded guilty to criminal trespass and was fined $329. Prosecutors dropped indecency and public intoxication counts. Young, who is barred from entering the McDonald’s (seen below), remains locked up in the county jail due to an outstanding warrant.

Nine year old Little Johnny, was asked by his mother what he had learned in Sunday school. "Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy lines on a rescue mission, to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. When he got to the Red Sea, he had his engineers build a pontoon bridge and all the people walked across safely. Then he used his walkie-talkie to radio headquarters for reinforcements. They sent bombers to blow up the bridge so that the cops could not follow them, and all the Israelites were saved."

>From Lilly When my husband was a student at Tennessee Temple University, I often asked him to do errands after class, tying ribbons on his fingers to remind him. A good sport, he didn't protest, even though his classmates obviously noticed my little reminders. One day he had to have a mole removed from above his ear and emerged from the doctor's office with his head wrapped in a white bandage. When he walked into class, everyone just stared. Finally one student blurted out, "Whatever your wife wants you to remember today, it must be REALLY important." ____________________________________________________

Dousing and bombarding one another with water from squirt guns, glasses, balloons, even wastebaskets. Since each room had a sink, there was endless ammunition. The most frequent target was the Resident Assistant. Approaching his room one afternoon, he noticed his door was ajar. Looking up, he saw a pail of water balanced on the door's edge, ready to fall on him. As he took down the pail and emptied it into his sink, he exclaimed, " You crazy guys actually thought you could fool me with THAT old gag!"

William Grappy, a California man whose current address is listed in Tampa, opened the unlocked ice cream truck shortly after midnight and found the keys inside, according to a press release from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office. The truck owner’s girlfriend saw Grappy drive off in the vehicle and followed him. Grappy ditched the truck behind the Tom Thumb at 1209 Miracle Strip Parkway and ran away, the press release said. Okaloosa County sheriff’s deputies found Grappy, who they said apologized for “being an idiot.” There was about $1,200 worth of ice cream inside the unlocked $10,000 vehicle. Grappy was charged with burglary, grand theft of a motor vehicle and possession of marijuana. Two “nuggets” of marijuana were found in his pants pockets, according to the release.
Tech Support Pits From: Lucille Re: Wired or wireless? Dear Webby What is faster for a home office network, old fashioned cable or wireless? I know I can't go by what the computer magazines say, because those guys never paid for their toys and have to watch who pays for the ads. The machines are not used for high file traffic games, just for office work, but in 4 different rooms. We are moving and I need to quickly decide whether to have the new place cabled or not. Thanks Lucille Dear Lucille Professionally installing cables so that they are hidden, with neat and clean wall jacks, is neither cheap nor fast. If you go that route, check with burglar alarm system installers. They know how to securely hide cables so that absolutely nothing shows. Wireless will be cheaper, and can be set up in an evening. Pretty well all modern modems have wireless antennas. The only work involved will be setting passwords and permissions. If you are not comfortable with doing that, you can probably entice a neighborhood kid to do that for a nice chocolate cake or bag of beef jerky. The file transfer speed of wireless is better than cable, as long as there are no fridges or metal file cabinets bouncing the signal around, and as long as the distance is not over 50 feet, otherwise the file transfer speed is lower than cable. Ethernet cable speed is not likely to improve in the future. That is a set standard. However, wireless is getting better by the season. If you have one or more "roaming" laptops, go with wireless.

BACK IN MY DAY In my day, we didn't have no rocks. We had to go down to the creek and wash our clothes by beating them with our heads. Back in the 1970s we didn't have the space shuttle to get all excited about. We had to settle for men walking on the crummy moon. In my day, we didn't have hand-held calculators. We had to do addition on our fingers. To subtract, we had to cut off somebody's fingers. In my day, we didn't have water. We had to smash together our own hydrogen and oxygen atoms. Kids today think the world revolves around them. In my day, the sun revolved around the world, and the world was perched on the back of a giant tortoise. In my day, we didn't have virtual reality.

The new inmate at the mental hospital announced in a loud voice that he was the famous British naval hero, Lord Nelson. This was particularly interesting, because the institution already had a "Lord Nelson." The head psychiatrist, after due consideration, decided to put the two men in the same room, feeling that the similarity of their delusions might prompt an adjustment in each that would help in curing them. It was a calculated risk, of course, for the two men might react violently to one another, but they were introduced and then left alone and no disturbance was heard from the room that night. The next morning, the doctor had a talk with his new patient and was more than pleasantly surprised when he was told "Doctor, I've been suffering from a delusion. I know now for a fact that I am not Lord Nelson." "That's wonderful," said the doctor. "Who are you?" Smiling coyly, the patient replied, "I'm Lady Nelson." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning the Microwave Fill a microwave safe bowl 3/4 of the way with water.

A synagogue had just opened for business while at the same time a Catholic church opened across the street. After some time the Rabbi noticed that a convent had been added to the church, More time later a Catholic school was built, then a gymnasium. Concerned the Rabbi called together his staff and expressed his concern, "We've been here the same amount of time as our neighbors and look, they've grown while we still have our same small temple - what are we doing wrong?" And so it was decided, they'd send Morris to attend a service on Sunday and check out what was going on over there. Sunday comes and all the men from the congregation are peeking thru the windows as Morris enters the church. Not 15 minutes later and Morris comes flying across the street, yelling and waving his arms. "So what happened?" says the Rabbi "Oy, you wouldn't believe it" says Morris "I go into the church, I sit down, then from the left a guy in a dress comes out unto the stage and he's chanting "I can play dominoes better than you can - I can play dominoes better than you can", then from the right of the stage some young boys swinging incense followed by another guy in a dress starts chanting "I bet you don't - I bet you don't" then back and forth they go "I can play dominoes better than you can - I bet you don't", then from outta' the back four men in black suits come down the aisles and pick up the bets !!!" ____________________________________________________

The stern teacher silently panned his gaze across all the kids. After about a minute or so, he spoke: "From the outset, I want you all to know that there are two words that are absolutely unacceptable in this classroom. You cannot use them as you recite, or in any of your papers, tests, or homework. Using these words even once, will get you a failing grade for that quarter. The first one is "gross". And the other one is "cool". Are there any questions?" After a few moments of silence, this gawky teen at the back of the room raises his hand, and the teacher calls upon him.

Entire North Carolina police department suspended after arrest of chief, lieutenant An entire police department in North Carolina was put on leave after the arrest of the department’s chief and lieutenant, according to WECT. The Southport Police Department’s police chief and lieutenant were arrested Thursday for allegedly moonlighting as truck drivers while officially on the clock at the police department. All police operations in the city were suspended after the arrests, and the whole police force is out on paid administrative leave. SPD Chief Gary Smith, 46, and Lt. Michael Christian Simmons, 48, face charges of conspiracy to obtain property by false pretenses, willful failure to discharge duties and obstruction of justice. Smith and Simmons are accused of driving overnight shifts for a trucking company while on the clock at the Southport Police Department. The name of the trucking company has not been released. The allegations state that the trucking jobs took to the two high-ranking officers out of the city and county while they were supposed to be on patrol in Southport. Smith was arrested Thursday morning and placed under a $10,000 unsecured bond. He posted bail and was released, WECT reports. Simmons was arrested during a Thursday afternoon news conference regarding the investigation. “It is indeed that I get before you today with a heart laden with grief for all these events that happened today,” said Southport Mayor Jerry Dove, according to WECT. “It was a shock to me to hear all these, being a former chief and knowing the officers that worked in that department and hired at least half of them.” The mayor and city’s board of alderman request the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office to lead law enforcement in Southport until further notice.
Tech Support Pits From: Helga Re: Numeric keys for laptop Dear Webby The numeric keypad keys on my laptop are dual-function keys embedded in the regular keyboard. It does have the numbers again on top, but I can't get any speed going with those. Is there a solution for that? Thanks Helga Dear Helga Numeric keypads used to be quite cheap, but because of the huge demand, the price went up. Honeywell sells one for $530, obviously for Government use only. However, even a Targus currently costs twice as much as a standard keyboard, that has the numeric keypad on it. I have always travelled with a standard 18" keyboard, that just fits into my laptop backpack. Those keyboards have been with me on many mountains and through most American deserts. Just find a standard keyboard, that will fit into your laptop case or backpack. They are from $12 up, and just plug into any USB port. For $50 you can even get them wireless, but that seems to me to be a waste of money, unless you plan to use a big 48" monitor 8 feet away from the couch and you being 10 feet away from the laptop.

Tech Support Pits From: A few people Re: Windows start-up sequence Dear Webby How can I re-arrange the start-up sequence for different programs in Windows to get to the mail faster? Dears Messing with the start-up sequence is more of a black art than a clear science. Windows doesn't really start things one at a time, but more like the "But first..." joke from a few days ago. And before all that, it loads parts of Internet Explorer to make magazine testers think MSIE loads faster than Chrome, Firefox or Oprera, when you open a browser. Then it starts loading stuff, but while it is waiting for the hard drive to deliver what it needs for that, it starts loading more stuff. Even though it appears as insane as a Chinese Fire Drill in Vancouver, it does actually finish loading everything in the shortest possible time. If you mess with it, it is probably going to take longer. You can probably get better results if you simply use the Tools in CrapCleaner and dump no longer fashionable utilities and stuff right out of the start-up sequence. You can also get to your mail faster if you reduce the restore period in MailWasher to the minimum. If you don't miss any mail in one day, you are probably not going to root through the spam restore bin a few days later. Also age off the blacklist in 2 days max.

The vet replied, "My old lady hit me over the head with it when I came in late." ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jessica Collins, 41, Spring, Houston, Texas Drunk Texan woman bit off, swallowed chunk of victim's nose A Texan woman is facing an assault charge after allegedly biting off and swallowing a large chunk of the nose of a female victim, according to investigators. Jessica Collins, 41, was arrested Thursday for the bloody attack in Spring, a Houston suburb. Collins, seen at right, was released from custody after posting $1000 bond on the misdemeanor charge. She is scheduled for a July 19 court appearance. Collins, who lives in Conroe, another Houston suburb, was staying with a female neighbor of the 28-year-old victim. After spending Wednesday evening at a local bar, the three women returned to the victim’s home, where Collins--seeking to keep the party going--asked her host for booze and cigarettes. Instead, the victim asked Collins to leave her residence, a request that allegedly prompted Collins to attack the woman. After yanking the victim to the floor by her hair, Collins allegedly bit off a large piece from the bridge of the woman’s nose. The woman, who needs emergency plastic surgery, told KTRK that she tried to fight off Collins, “but I couldn't. All I could remember was the taste of blood in my mouth.” She also recalled calling her husband while in an ambulance: “I was screaming, like, ‘I don't have a nose. I’m 28 years old and I don't have a nose anymore.’” A court filing accuses Collins of intentionally causing bodily injury to the victim by “biting Complainant with her mouth.” As a condition of her bond, Collins, a divorced mother of three, has been ordered to have no contact with the victim. According to her Facebook page, Collins works at Michaels, the arts and crafts chain, and has studied therapeutic massage. A friend of the victim has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $12,000 to cover medical costs. “Because of the missing piece was never recovered, my friend now needs reconstructive plastic surgery,” notes the solicitation, which adds that the victim was assaulted by a “mentally unstable person” who “lunged at my friend, biting off her nose and swallowing it.”
Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Slow Eudora Dear Webby I did everything that you suggested. There is a bit of an improvement, but Eudora still hangs. The only way that I know around this annoyance is to delete the program through "task master" then restart it. Also programs still are slow to open. For example, PowerChute, my battery backup program takes 23 seconds to open. Then it takes 10 seconds to close it. Do you have any other suggestions to improve the performance of my old W 7 machine, other than formatting the HD and starting over? Thanks again. Bill Dear Bill In Eudora, move all mail except July from the INBOX to a new box that you name, for example PRE-JULY-18 Same thing with the OUT box. Dump the trash Look for where the attachments go. Same thing, move most of them to a new box with a different name. Look for where the EMBEDDED files go. You might have a gazillion Incredimail butterflies and crap. Browse that file with PSP or your favorite graphics program. Sort them by size. 99% of the small crap IS crap. You might be able to tag 10,000 of them and dump them. Just keep the real keepers. Dump the trash again. IN, OUT, EMBEDDED, ATTACHMENTS and TRASH should be as lean as possible. Then Eudora will be fast. You might also want to do some drastic weeding out with your backup. Back up onto a 16 or 32 GB camera chip, then dump the backup on the machine. If it has to check a Gazillion files if they are older or newer, that takes time. The backup program probably does not delete 10 year old files, that are long obsolete. Dump it, and then do a fresh backup. ------------------- Bill wrote back to tell me that Eudora does not hang anymore, and is fast now. Have FUN DearWebby

Two young boys were spending the night at their grandparents. At bedtime, the two boys knelt beside their beds to say their prayers when the youngest one began praying at the top of his lungs. "I PRAY FOR A NEW BICYCLE... I PRAY FOR A NEW NINTENDO... I PRAY FOR A NEW VCR..." His older brother leaned over and nudged the younger brother and said, "Why are you shouting your prayers? God isn't deaf." To which the little brother replied, "No, but Grandma is!"

I went to a medical clinic for an electrocardiogram. While the technician was lining up her machine, I told her I have dextrocardia. "What's that?" she asked. "It means my heart is on the right side of my chest rather than on the left," I answered. "You should set up your machine to accommodate that." As she attached the wires, she asked casually, "Tell me, have you had that for long?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Growing Celery From Kitchen Scraps By Judy [472 Posts, 9,363 Comments] When you are finished with the bunch of celery, put it in a glass of water to root.

I pointed out to her that because the VW had an automatic transmission, it needed to be pushed at a speed of at least 30mph for it to start. She said fine, hopped into her car and drove off.

_____________________________________________________ Tongue Twister A duel was fought between Alexander Shott and John Nott in June 1849. Nott was shot and Shott was not. In this case it is better to be Shott than Nott. Some said that Nott was not shot. But Shott says that he shot Nott. It may be that the shot Shott shot, shot Nott, or it may be possible that the shot Shott shot, shot Shott himself. We think, however, that the shot Shott shot, shot not Shott, but Nott. Anyway it is hard to tell who was shot and who was not. ___________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Victoria Everett, 34, Reshod Everett, 32, Davis III, 27, Fayetteville, North Carolina North Carolina daycare raided in massive drug bust Authorities arrested three people and seized more than 100 pounds of marijuana in two drug busts, one involving a child care center in North Carolina.

A man went into the proctologist's office for his first exam. The doctor told him to have a seat in the examination room and that he would be with him in just a few minutes. Well, when the man sat down in the examination room, he noticed that there were three items on a stand next to the doctor's desk: a tube of K-Y jelly, a rubber glove, and a beer. When the doctor came in, the man said, "Look Doc, this is my first exam.. I know what the K-Y is for... and I know what the glove is for... but what's the BEER for?" At this instant, the doctor became noticeably outraged and stormed over to the door. The doc flung the door open and yelled to his nurse, "Dammit, nurse!!! I said a BUTT LIGHT!!!"

Tech Support Pits From: Karen Re: How do I find the real sender of spam or spoofs? Dear Webby This is probably a very dumb question. How do I find the real sender of spam or spoofs? Sometimes I suspect that it's a spoof, but how can I tell for sure? Karen Dear Karen If you get MailWasher, you will see the actual linking going on, right in the preview, before even downloading the complete mail. You will see, for example, that a message pretending to be from PayPal or from MyPostcards has been sent with Outlook. That alone proves that the mail is a spoof, since big companies don't use Outlook. Then you see stuff like PayPal.com (links to ....... a bunch of numbers and weird addresses). You can look a lot further, but that's already more than enough proof that that mail is crooked. There is no point, really, in investigating further, since they probably forged the sender address anyway. Just mark it for deleting, and if you get a lot of them, make a filter to dump them automatically, unseen. Have FUN DearWebby

Old man Zack had an incredible mule. They had been together for years and stayed pretty much to themselves. One day, Zack and his mule were walking down the road when a passerby asked if Zack needed a ride to town. Zack accepted the offer and the driver asked, "What about your mule?" Zack said, "Oh, don't worry about him. He'll keep up." Then Zack got into the truck while his mule ran along behind. The driver was a little cruel and decided to speed up a little. The mule was right in back of them as they reached 55 mph. The driver accelerated and the mule and stayed with them. They reached 70 miles per hour and the mule was still right behind them. The driver couldn't believe this. He turned to Zack and said, "I'm worried about your mule. His tongue is hanging out." Zack said, "Which way?" The driver said, "Left." And Zack said, "Well, stay in this lane, he's about to pass."

What's the second best?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Reduce Static On Carpets To cut down on those annoying static shocks from walking on your carpet, mix 1 part fabric softener to 5 parts water in a clean spray bottle. Put the spray bottle on its widest setting and spray your carpet with a light mist. That makes your hallways smell nice, but on some carpets may increase the static when the water dries. Plus it can get rather expensive! Most hotels, that have static problems on long hallways, use a bottle cap full of vinegar in a quart sprayer and the rest of it filled with water. That is the sorta familiar, but hard to indentify, fresh scent that you smell in the hallways of many of the better hotels. At a dollar per gallon it's also a lot cheaper. Have FUN!

Thanks to Susan for this story: After my husband and I had a huge argument, we ended up not talking to each other for days. Finally, on the third day, he asked where one of his shirts was. "Oh," I said, "So now you're speaking to me." He looked confused, "What are you talking about?" "Haven't you noticed I haven't spoken to you for three days?" I challenged. "No," he said, "I just thought we were getting along." ____________________________________________________

Tech Support Pits From: Elizabeth Re: What to do about spoofs Dear Webby, The weird characters you mentioned today also come from mail written with Microsoft WEIRD and Microsoft Live Mail. There apparently ARE ways to fix that and force their crap to use standard encoding, but one would have to read the instwuckshions. That unfortunately is not fashionable with THAT crowd. Now for today's question: There is a real epidemic of spoofs coming into my mail box. I know they are just caused by a virus, or rather by people who are too stupid to protect their machines from viruses, and I don't blame ebay or PayPal or Mypostcards or Hallmark or Citibank for being spoofed about, but isn't there something that can be done about it? We can put people into space and eavesdrop on terrorists, you'd think these scammers could be nailed with today's technology! I know the government is useless and the politicians are busy trying to guarantee themselves a warm place to shit and have other prioities than the tax payers, but can't the IT industry come up with a solution? Yeah, I know, look at Vista! Some solution! In the meantime, what do YOU suggest for dealing with this unholy crap? Elizabeth Dear Elizabeth Yes, I know that the government COULD use the spamcops to identify the scammers, but as you said, they have other priorities, and most likely some bleeding heart liberal judges would make identifying scammers just as illegal as eavesdropping on terrorists. Look how it took Russian hackers to expose Broom Hilda's crimes, which are now ignored and the witch hunt is about who might have gotten groped or laid by Trump. As mentioned before, I use Mailwasher. It recognizes those spoofs and marks them as KNOWN and to be deleted. When you hit F6 to process, it dumps them without ever downloading more than a few lines of the header. You can even make filters. For example, if you don't know anybody in Russia or Nigeria, then you can set it so that mail from there gets dumped without even showing in the list. MailWasher of course looks at the actual and hidden sender address. It completely ignores the faked one pretending to be your bank. A lot of scammers forge your own address as the sender address, even the underlying hidden address. No Problem, Mailwasher can deal with that too. I have used the same addresses since 1993, and they are probably on ever spammer's CD in the entire world. That does not bother me one bit. MailWasher takes care of them all. Have FUN DearWebby

SCIENCE: BREAD IS DANGEROUS 1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread users. 2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread- consuming households score below average on standardized tests. 3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations. 4. More than 90 percent of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread. 5. Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water to eat, begged for bread after as little as two days. 6. Bread is often a "gateway" food item, leading the user to "harder" items such as butter, jelly, peanut butter, and even cream cheese. 7. Bread has been proven to absorb water. Since the human body is more than 90 percent water, it follows that eating bread could lead to your body being taken over by this absorptive food product, turning you into a soggy, gooey, bread-pudding person. 8. Newborn babies can choke on bread. 9. Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 450 degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an adult in less than two minutes. 10. Most American bread eaters are utterly unable to distinguish between significant scientific fact and meaningless AlGorian statistical babbling.

On a flight to Florida, I was preparing my notes for one of the parent-education seminars I conduct as an educational psychologist. The elderly woman sitting next to me explained that she was returning to Miami after having spent two weeks visiting her six children, 18 grandchildren and ten great- grandchildren in Boston. Then she inquired what I did for a living. I told her, fully expecting her to question me for free pro- fessional advice. Instead she sat back, picked up a magazine and said, "If there's anything you want to know, just ask me." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Unusual Wrapping Ideas Use linens or towels to wrap gifts and the wrapping will be a nice gift too.

Tech Support Pits From Barb Re: Weird symbols in mail that came from Outlook Dear Webby, In mail, that originated from me and shows in people's replies, there are weird symbols like  or É. They show even in Gmail, if a portion of it came from my other machine, that has Outlook on it. What is the cause of that? Thanks Barb Dear Barb That is just Microslop. You must have seen complaints regarding "winmail.dat", that most people nowadays delete automatically right on the server. Win mail.dat is sent by Outlook and Microsoft WORD to supply supplementary font information so that other Outlook users see left-wing quotes, curly quotes and similar non-standard characters, that look cutesy on widdle goilies emails, but are just a nuisance on regular standard programs. That is why Microsoft adds a secret "Winmail.dat" file to supply the extra information. Well, almost everybody dumps the thilly winmail.dat right on the server. It is just a useless nuisance. IF, and only IF, the receiving victim has Microsoft Office or Outlook, then they can use the winmail.dat to tilt the quotes and do a few other semi-cute stunts. Standard programs just show whatever letters come through. Your Outlook uses É (plus winmail dat translator) to produce a left wing quote, There IS a setting in Outluck to make it send standard characters and forget the left wing quotes and curly quotes. Microsoft calls the left wing quotes "Smart Quotes". The rest of us call them "Microslop".

The man blithered there was a was a wild lion loose in that garage. The monster had chased him, snarling. He was so frightened the officers took him seriously, drawing their guns, crept cautiously into the garage After a few minutes they came out, hanging onto each other, barely able to talk for laughing. They called the man over. "We found your lion, take a look." Out walked the most embarrassed dog in the world. He was the garage guard dog. It was painful to look at him. Yellow, huge, he had once sported long shaggy hair. The owner had taken him to a groomer to be shaved. He had also given the groomer a bottle of strong homemade wine. The groomer went creative. He shaved the poor dog, leaving a huge ruff around his neck, a puff on the end of the tail, plus styled huge furry boots on his feet. He did indeed look like a lion. Sort of. A crowd gathered, everyone shaking with mirth. The lion dog had enough. He opened his mouth and roared. The crowd scattered, the cops leaped into their car. The owner walked out of the garage, wiping his hands on a greasy rag. He grinned at the dog, "Atta boy, you should get a medal for bravery under fire." ___________________________________________________

Bill Dear Bill Eudora has been able to handle dominant plus secondary accounts since about 1993, however, when semi-skilled and sooty summer help at the ISP messes around, it can turn into a real nuisance. Those kids tend to assume that everybody gets onto the Internet with a SillyPhone, like they are, so they keep changing the settings at the ISP side. Instead of coping with the silly twits, most people simply set the secondary email to automatically forward to the dominant or primary email. That way you get everything at your dominant email address, and don't have to worry about all the others. They simply show up. You still see which address the mail has been sent to.

_____________________________________________________ Many many years ago when I was twenty three, I got married to a widow who was pretty as could be. This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red. My father fell in love with her, and soon the two were wed. This made my dad my son-in-law And changed my very life. My daughter was my mother, For she was my father's wife. To complicate the matters worse, Although it brought me joy, I soon became the father Of a bouncing baby boy. My little baby then became A brother-in-law to dad. And so became my uncle, Though it made me very sad. For if he was my uncle, Then that also made him brother To the widow's grown-up daughter Who, of course, was my step-mother. Father's wife then had a son, Who kept them on the run. And he became my grandson, For he was my daughter's son. My wife is now my mother's mother And it makes me blue. Because, although she is my wife, She is my grandma too. If my wife is my grandmother, Then I am her grandchild. And every time I think of it, It simply drives me wild. For now I have become The strangest case you ever saw. As the husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa. ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by (Previous mug shot) Maxwell Elder, 20, St. Augustine, Florida Crook on Fentanyl gets jaw broken after biting deputy A St. Augustine man was arrested Tuesday after a scuffle with St. Johns County deputies, leaving him with a broken jaw. Maxwell Elder, 20, of St. Augustine, was arrested Tuesday and is being charged with possession of narcotics, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, resisting with violence and battery on a law enforcement officer. According to a St. Johns County offense report, police were called by a neighbor who asked them to give Elder a trespass warning. After the call, the report says Elder stole a $300 extension ladder, but the neighbor did not want to press charges against Elder. Once a deputy arrived to his home, he said he found Elder in the driveway. When the responding deputy asked if Elder knew why he was there, Elder responded "Are you with me or against me?" The deputy said he noticed Elder was holding a multi-colored glass pipe with a baggie in his left hand. The report says the deputy immediately secured Elder in handcuffs and took away the suspected narcotics. When the deputy was searching him, Elder told the deputy he had a patch on his leg for bug bites, the report said. According to the report, the deputy suspected it was a fentanyl patch and called fire and rescue to respond to the scene. An additional deputy arrived and, according to the report, attempted to help the initial responder arrest Elder. When the deputies tried to place Elder on the rear of a patrol vehicle, Elder "became enraged for no apparent reason," banging his head forcefully against the back window of the car, the report said. Deputies said Elder tried kicking one of them in the groin, so they took him to the ground to prevent him from injuring himself. That's when Elder bit one of the deputies, the report said. The deputy stated, "Stop biting me." The report said the deputy who was being bitten then attempted to deliver a brachial stun and managed to get Elder to let go. St. Johns County Fire Rescue informed the deputy that the patch was fentanyl, the report said, and Elder was placed under arrest and taken to Flagler Hospital for medical clearance. Doctors told deputies that Elder sustained a broken jaw from the incident, as well as a cut on the inside of his lip, stating it was likely a result from the attempted brachial stun, according to the report.

By the time a Marine pulled into a little town, every hotel room was taken. "You've got to have a room somewhere," he pleaded. "Or just a bed, I don't care where." "Well, I do have a double room with one occupant - an Air Force guy," admitted the manager, "and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained. I'm not sure it'd be worth it to you." "No problem," the tired Marine assured him. "I'll take it." The next morning the Marine came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. "How'd you sleep?" asked the manager. "Never better." The manager was impressed. "No problem with the other guy snoring, then?" "Nope, I shut him up in no time," said the Marine. "How'd you manage that?" asked the manager. "He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came into the room," the Marine explained. "I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, said, 'Goodnight, beautiful,' and he sat up all night watching me."

The old farmer next door was out one day and saw the new neighbor planting in his garden. The farmer watched as the man would dig a hole, set a tomato plant and pour in a shot of whiskey. The farmer couldn’t help but ask what he was planting. “Stewed tomatoes,” was the reply. ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Earle Gustavas Stevens, 69, Vero Beach, Florida Driver told cops he only drank at stop signs An inebriated motorist assured Florida police that he was not drinking while driving, but only swigging from a bottle of Jim Beam bourbon when his vehicle paused at stop signs and traffic signals, according to a police report. Earle Gustavas Stevens, 69, was arrested for driving his Mercury Grand Marquis while under the influence. The Vero Beach resident, now free on $1500 bond in advance of a July 31 arraignment, was nabbed after a driver called 911 to report that Stevens’s car repeatedly tapped her bumper while they were in a McDonald’s drive- thru lane. When a sheriff’s deputy contacted Stevens, he reeked of alcohol, was slurring his words, and had ”red and glossy” eyes. On the Mercury’s passenger seat was a bottle of Jim Beam, from which Stevens admitted he had been drinking. Asked if he was drinking in the auto, Stevens replied, “No.” He then explained he was enjoying the bourbon at “Stop signs.” The deputy further noted Stevens’s distinction when it came to drinking while driving: “He further explained that he was not drinking while the car was moving and only when he stopped for stop signs and traffic signals.” It was their fault for having so many stop signs. Stevens was arrested after failing a series of field sobriety tests, as first reported by Will Greenlee of Treasure Coast Newspapers. A breath test recorded Stevens’s blood alcohol content at nearly twice the legal limit. In addition to a drunk driving charge, Stevens was cited for driving without a license. Stevens, seen above, reportedly told cops that he had two “prior DUI charges from Missouri.”
Tech Support Pits From: David Re: Which digital camera is best? Dear Webby, Which digital camera is best? And which parts of them are the most important criteria? What is better, Canon or Nikon? David Dear David The most important criteria is your budget. If you get too close to the limit of it, the best camera is always not going to be quite good enough. Second most important is lens size. The larger the lens, the more light the chip has to work with. Third is the electronics, especially how the camera interpretes the analog signals into digital. Canon and Nikon are best there, with the rest of them seemingly a class or more below. Fourth is Optical Zoom. Forget digital zoom, that's just cropping the picture, enlarging it digitally and making it coarse. Forget about the number of Megapixels. That number is usually just a number picked by an advertising editor and in the small print they admit that it is "equivalent to so many Megapixels". 3 Megapixels are fine, but at around 5 you start wasting space on the memory chip and get into problems with working on the pictures in full size. How much free and available RAM do you have on your computer? There is no point in paying for 12 or more megapixels and then having to set the camera to take pictures at 1600x1200, ( 1.9 Megapixels ). More pixels don't extend you reach into the dark at all. It's the same amount of light split into more real and calculated pixels. I am a purist and don't use flash. It makes pictures flat. I found that I can reach much farther into the dark with an ancient Canon with a big lens. Canon versus Nikon is a religious question. They are both so good, that the skill of the photographer makes a much bigger difference than the brand. Each has it's own distinct peculiarities, that you can take advantage of, once you get familiar with your camera. But the differences are not big enough that anybody would buy one of each. Remeber the differences in film in the old days? Kodak had a warm tint, Fuji and Agfa a colder tint. For camp fire parties you used kodak, for fishing you used Agfa or Fuji. Canon has a warmer tint, Nikon a colder tint. It is easy enough to adust that on the computer. Personally, I prefer the warmer Canon interpretation. Have FUN DearWebby

"A metronome," I replied weakly, as my son cringed in embarrassment. "It's a talking metronome," I insisted. "Look, I'll show you."

A short time later, she started leaning off to her left, so again the family grabbed her and stuffed pillows on her left. Soon she started leaning forward, so the family members again grabbed her, then tied a pillowcase around her waist to hold her up. A nephew who arrived late came up to Grandma and said, "Hi, Grandma, you're Looking good! How are they treating you?" Grandma took out her little notepad and slowly wrote a note to the nephew: "Dumb Bastids won't let me fart!" ___________________________________________________

Thanks to Harry for this story: When I picked up my wife from work one afternoon, she seemed irritated. She confessed that the day hadn't gone well, and on top of everything else, a young customer had addressed her as "ma'am." "I'm not that old," she insisted. "I deserve more respect!" She vented the whole way home while hitting the scan button on the radio. Finally I asked, "What are you looking for?" She replied, "The oldies station." ____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ GOD: Frank , you know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going on down there on the planet? What happened to the dandelions, violets, thistle and stuff I started eons ago? I had a perfect no-maintenance garden plan. Those plants grow in any type of soil, withstand drought and multiply with abandon. The nectar from the long-lasting blossoms attracts butterflies, honey bees and flocks of songbirds. I expected to see a vast garden of colours by now. But, all I see are these green rectangles. Saint FRANCIS: It's the tribes that settled there, Lord. The Suburbanites. They started calling your flowers "weeds" and went to great lengths to kill them and replace them with grass. GOD: Grass? But, it's so boring. It's not colourful. It doesn't attract butterflies, birds and bees; only grubs and sod worms. It's sensitive to temperatures. Do these Suburbanites really want all that grass growing there? ST. FRANCIS : Apparently so, Lord. They go to great pains to grow it and keep it green. They begin each spring by fertilizing grass and poisoning any other plant that crops up in the lawn. GOD: The spring rains and warm weather probably make grass grow really fast. That must make the Suburbanites happy. ST. FRANCIS : Apparently not, Lord. As soon as it grows a little, they cut it --sometimes twice a week. GOD: They cut it? Do they then bail it like hay? ST. FRANCIS : Not exactly, Lord. Most of them rake it up and put it in bags. GOD: They bag it? Why? Is it a cash crop? Do they sell it? ST. FRANCIS : No, Sir, just the opposite. They pay to throw it away. GOD: Now, let me get this straight. They fertilize grass so it will grow. And, when it does grow, they cut it off and pay to throw it away? ST. FRANCIS : Yes, Sir. GOD: These Suburbanites must be relieved in the summer when we cut back on the rain and turn up the heat. That surely slows the growth and saves them a lot of work. ST. FRANCIS: You aren't going to believe this, Lord. When the grass stops growing so fast, they drag out hoses and pay more money to water it so they can continue to mow it and pay to get rid of it. GOD: What nonsense. At least they kept some of the trees. That was a sheer stroke of genius, if I do say so myself. The trees grow leaves in the spring to provide beauty and shade in the summer. In the autumn, they fall to the ground and form a natural blanket to keep moisture in the soil and protect the trees and bushes. It's a natural cycle of life. ST. FRANCIS: You better sit down, Lord. The Suburbanites have drawn a new circle. As soon as the leaves fall, they rake them into great piles and pay to have them hauled away. GOD: No. What do they do to protect the shrub and tree roots in the winter to keep the soil moist and loose? ST. FRANCIS: After throwing away the leaves, they go out and buy something which they call mulch. They haul it home and spread it around in place of the leaves. GOD: And where do they get this mulch? ST. FRANCIS: They cut down trees and grind them up to make the mulch. GOD: Enough! I don't want to think about this anymore. St. Catherine, you're in charge of the arts. What movie have you scheduled for us tonight? ST. CATHERINE: "Dumb and Dumber", Lord. It's a story about.... GOD: Never mind, I think I just heard the whole story from St. Francis. ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Alejandro Alvarez Villegas, 32, Chula Vista, California San Diego chainsaw attacker is illegal alien who has been deported 11 times A California man who attacked his wife with a chainsaw is an illegal alien who has been deported at least 11 times since 2005, immigration officials confirmed Friday Alvarez has a long record of being deported and returning to the U.S., according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). “Department of Homeland Security databases indicate Mr. Alvarez- Villegas is a serial immigration violator who has been removed from the United States at least 11 times since 2005,” an ICE spokesperson said, according to NBC7 News in San Diego. The incident began Wednesday, when police in the Los Angeles suburb of Whittier responded to a domestic violence call and found Alvarez’s wife inside their home with chest wounds caused by a chainsaw. The next day, Chula Vista police pulled over Alvarez in an SUV, that had been reported stolen in Los Angeles. Alvarez allegedly tried to ram a police car during the traffic stop, but officers were able to arrest him without any injuries, Chula Vista Police Lt. Kenny Heinz said, according to NBC7. Rumors that he is claiming sanctuary and will be running on the Democratic ticket for governor of Mexifornia have not been confirmed yet.
Tech Support Pits From: Angela Re: Computer positioning Dear Webby, I have a question about the CPU unit of my desk top. I am rearranging my work/study area and was wondering if it is safe to lay the CPU down on its side and set my printer on top of it gain more space on my computer desk. I do not want to place it on the floor because I have too many animals living in my house and do not fully trust them all to behave with it on the floor. Angela Dear Angela The CPU doesn't care, and the hard drives don't care as long as you don't put it with the front side up. The most important consideration is good air flow behind it. Don't shove it into a desk hutch cubbyhole, no matter which way you turn it. Laying flat, with the removable side cover side up, is just fine. That is actually better than standing upright on the floor, where the main air intake at the front bottom sucks in all the dust bunnies and pet hairs off the floor and drastically reduces cooling. Yes, I know it's stupid, but they don't want computers to last forever. Try to lay it flat on the left rear corner of your desk, with the former bottom pointing away from you. That way it sucks fresh air from the left of the desk. Especially n summer, cooling of the computer is very important. While you are moving it, pop the side cover open and vacuum it out. If you are scared of large herds of dust bunnies, get somebody else to do it, but don't neglect that chore! Have FUN DearWebby

As I drove into a parking lot, I noticed that a pickup truck with a dog sitting behind the wheel was rolling toward a female pedestrian. She seemed oblivious, so I hit my horn to get her attention. She looked up just in time to jump out of the way of the truck's path, and the vehicle bumped harmlessly into the curb and stopped. I rushed to the woman's side to see if she was all right. "I'm fine," she assured me, "but I hate to think what could have happened to me if that dog hadn't honked."

Thanks to Kati for this story: Bill and Sam, two elderly friends, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons, watch the squirrels and discuss world problems. One day Bill didn't show up. Sam didn't think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something. But after Bill hadn't shown up for a week or so, Sam really got worried. However, since the only time they ever got together was at the park, Sam didn't know where Bill lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him. A month had passed, and Sam figured he had seen the last of Bill, but one day, Sam approached the park and -- lo and behold! --there sat Bill! Sam was very excited and happy to see him and told him so. Then he said, "For crying out loud Bill, what in the world happened to you?" Bill replied, "I have been in jail." "Jail?" cried Sam. "What in the world for?" "Well," Bill said, "you know Sue, that cute little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where I sometime go?" "Yeah," said Sam, "I remember her. What about her?" "Well, one day she filed rape charges against me; and, at 89 years old, I was so proud that when I got into court, I pleaded 'guilty' and the judge gave me 30 days for perjury." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com A Mail Box for Garden Tools A handy place to store pruning shears and small garden tools is in an old mail box.

>From Stormy Hanging wall paper is messy work. I was struggling to hold a long wet piece of paper in place, when it slipped out of my grasp. My cat and dog just happened to be sitting underneath the ladder. The long gooey thing landed right on them. The startled critters leaped up, crashed into the wall, getting really tangled together. From the barking and hissing, I could tell they were each blaming the other. Stuck together inside the paper, they crashed across the room, thumped over the doorstep, out the open door to tumble across the lawn. The harder they tried to separate, the tighter the paper stuck to their fur. A group of young kids were passing by on their way home from school. They stared at the noisy antics of my unfortunate pets. Two little boys helped me untangle the poor animals. They talked to each other for a moment, then started to giggle. "Hey lady, can we have a piece of this stuff?" I asked why, telling them it had to be wet and put on a wall. "That's okay, we can put water on it." I suggested that their parents might not like them sticking it to a wall," Then I added, "You aren't thinking of putting this on your dog or cat are you?" The giggling turned up a notch. "No, we want to throw it on our sister when she's kissing her boyfriend in the living room!" ____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ The following are copies of ACTUAL written statements submitted to the police on report forms. (Or at least they claim to be ACTUAL statements. You be the judge.) The drivers were instructed to give a brief statement on the particulars of the accident in their own words. Coming home, I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don't know. I pulled away from the side of the road, glanced at my Mother-in-law and headed over the embankment. The gentleman behind me struck me on the backside. He then went to rest in the bush with just his rear end showing. In an attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole. I had been driving my car for forty years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident. An invisible car came out of nowhere, struck my vehicle and vanished. The pedestrian had no idea which direction to go, so I ran over him. I saw the slow moving, sad faced old gentleman as he bounced off the hood of my car. The guy was all over the road, I had to swerve a number of times before I hit him. To avoid hitting the bumper of the car in front, I struck the pedestrian. I was sure the old fellow would never make it to the other side of the roadway when I struck him. My girlfriend kissed me. I lost control and woke up in the hospital. When I saw I could not avoid a collision I stepped on the gas and crashed into the other car. As I approached the intersection, a stop sign suddenly appeared in a place where no stop sign had ever appeared before. I was unable to stop in time to avoid the accident. The indirect cause of this accident was a little guy in a small car with a big mouth. I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way. I told the police that I was not injured, but on removing my hat, I found that I had fractured my skull. I thought I could squeeze between two trucks when my car became squashed. ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Laquisha Jones, 30, Los Angeles, California Woman charged with attempted murder for beating 92-year-old man with brick Laquisha has been arrested five additional times in the past, with a prostitution conviction. This is her sixth arrest. She Shouted Racist Statements at Him & Told Him to ‘Go Back to Mexico,’ Witnesses Say. According to the witness, who asked that she not be named, Jones repeatedly screamed a series of racist statements at Rodriguez while beating him, the Los Angeles Times reports. Laquisha, accused of severely injuring a 92-year-old man with a brick is now facing charges of attempted murder and elder abuse, prosecutors said. Laquisha Jones, 30, allegedly attacked the elderly man with a brick south of Los Angeles on July 4, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said. A "woman pushed him and dropped him," a witness told ABC station KABC-TV in Los Angeles. "She took the block of concrete and hit him in his head many times." Jones, who prosecutors said fled the scene after seeing that somebody was recording her assault, was arrested Tuesday and initially faced the charge of assault with a deadly weapon. The district attorney's office announced the attempted murder and elder abuse charges on Thursday. “I heard her saying, go back to your country, go back to Mexico,” Borjas told CNN. “When I tried to videotape her with my cell phone, she threw that same concrete block, tried to hit my car.” Despite Jones allegedly telling Rodriguez to go back to his country (he is of Mexican descent, but is a legal U.S. resident), LASD has determined that the attack on Rodriguez “is not a hate-related incident,” the department wrote in a statement. The 92-year-old was hospitalized after the assault in Willowbrook. According to his family, Rodriguez suffered two broken ribs, a broken jaw, broken cheekbones, and bruising throughout his face and body. He is still recovering from his injuries.

I would like to make them in to screen savers, but my senior mind has forgot how. Can you help me? I have learned many things from your computer tips and enjoy the letter immensely. I like the links you have on left side as they remind me to click on them & feed the poor, animals, and the breast cancer sight. You do lots of good for so many. Many thanks, Taurus. Dear Taurus The easiest way to make a screensaver is this: Use the Windows File Explorer to find your "My Pictures" folder. Make a new folder inside that and call it Archive Switch the File Explorer to Thumbnail view, Click on Folders, so that it shows the folders on the left side. (This works much better in Classical mode) Drag all pictures that you don't want included in your screen saver into the "Archive" folder. Save any new pictures, that you want included, into the "My Pictures" folder. Right-click on the desktop, Properties, Appearance, Screensaver Select "My Pictures" Set the delay time, and hit OK a bunch of times. From then on you will have a slide show of the pictures in "My Pictures" as a screen saver.

South Miami police say Hovan, 32, pistol-whipped the woman before taking off with her jewelry and Mercedes Benz. On Saturday, police say Hovan was in Casselberry, Florida, just north of Kissimmee, where he held a 24-year-old woman at knifepoint. WFTV9 reported that the woman opened her apartment door thinking it was a pizza deliveryman. It wasn't. Hovan, who police say had been watching the woman and her friend load the car in a grocery store parking lot just hours before, barged in with a knife and raped one of them, the news station reported. Afterward, police said, Hovan kidnapped them in a car owned by one of them, took them to a Publix ATM in a nearby town and demanded they withdraw money. That's when one of the women asked an employee to call 911. By the time police got there, Hovan had fled. Hovan was spotted at a convenience store in Titusville on Thursday. A police officer thought he was acting suspicious and checked the license plate of the car he was driving. He tried to run but the cop put him on the ground with her taser. Hovan was ultimately identified by investigators by his fingerprints in the woman's apartment and in the stolen Mercedes.
Tech Support Pits From: Patti Re: Alternating Highspeed accounts Dear Webby, My computer is for fun and a bit of research and after 5 years I've decided it's time to get off dial up. My problem: 6 months in Michigan, 6 months in Arizona. I've looked and looked at high speed providers and can't find one that will work between the two areas and also while I'm on the road. My present provider works in all three areas but wow, it's getting slower and slower. You have to realize this "olde" gal is slowly coming into the next century, but good grief, there is so much technology to learn and small town living doesn't offer much help Can you offer any advice?? Having a lot of fun, Patti Dear Patti While on the road, you'll just have to go to hotels and motels that have high speed. As a rule of thumb, 3-star have wired Internet or free local dial-out, 4 star and up have wireless high speed Internet. Regarding the migration, call Earthlink and ask them if they still have a Snowbird Special. 1-866-383-3080 or go on their live chat. Get the phone numbers for both locations ready before you call. They do have a fairly straightforward method for relocating, but best is if you talk to them. Have FUN DearWebby

'Twas in a restaurant they first met, Romeo and Juliet. 'Twas there that he got into debt, 'Cause he owed what Juli ate.' ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Gas Saving Driving Techniques Use the correct speed for the gear you are in. Try to drive the speed limit and accelerate slowly when leaving the stop light. The fastest person through the intersection just gets to spend more on gas. There is no need to rev your engine before you turn your vehicle off, it just wastes gas. Here are some tricks I learned in the arctic: Use synthetic WINTER oil all year round. It can easily handle summer temperatures, since the engine has a thermostat anyway. In winter put a rug in front of the radiator and over the engine, so that it reaches proper operating temperature. Even the best engine is a gas guzzler during warm-up, since it is programmed to burn extra fuel to heat up the engine to ideal temp. Without a rug it may never reach ideal temp until March! Change oil and air filters frequently, and vacuum out the duct from the front to the air filter intake. Any leaves or twigs in that duct cost you dearly in gas money, but no mechanic will ever tell you about that. They rather sell you expensive add-ons or better filters, that don't make much difference. Have FUN! DearWebby Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________

A Protestant moved into a completely Catholic community. Being good Catholics they welcomed him into their community. But, also because they were good Catholics they did not eat red meat on Fridays. So when their neighbor began barbecuing some juicy steak on Friday night, they began to squirm. They were so annoyed that they went to talk to him about it. After much talk they convinced him to become Catholic. The next Sunday he went to the priest and the priest sprinkled holy water on him and said, "You were born Protestant. You were raised Protestant. But now you are Catholic." And so, the next Friday, as the neighbors sat down to eat their fish, they were disturbed by the smell of roast beef coming from the neighboring house. They went over to talk to the new Catholic because he knew he was not supposed to eat beef on Fridays. When they saw him, he was sprinkling ketchup on the beef saying, "You were born a cow. You were raised a cow. But now you are a fish." In order to hang on to their members, Catholics can now eat red meat on Fridays, and are even allowed to use birth control. However, organic birth control like "69" is still a sin. ____________________________________________________

Amy Walker with the CHP says Robert Quigley, 25, rear-ended an SUV that was stopped in traffic on westbound Interstate 80 just west of Antelope Road. At the time of the crash, Quigley was driving around 75 to 80 mph. A CHP officer spotted the car after it burst into flames and turned around in traffic to help. As he did, he spotted Quigley switch seats with his female passenger. Quigley later admitted to the officer that he was behind the wheel at the time of the crash. A witness told officials a shirtless Quigley went back to his burning car to light his cigarette, singeing part of his eyebrows off in the process, according to Walker. Quigley later told the officer at the scene, “Yeah I’m not afraid of fire. I deal with this kind of stuff all the time.” Walker says Quigley sustained a burn on his neck from his seatbelt. No one else was injured in the crash. Quigley has been charged on suspicion of driving under the influence and is being booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail. This is the second time he has been picked up for DUI in the last week after Grass Valley CHP stopped him during a separate incident.

It is common practice for both the client and the owner of the dogs to oversee the mating, just to be sure a breeding did take place also to prevent the dogs from harming each other. The male was getting on in years but his owner didn't expect any problems. The impressive looking male Akita, General, was introduced to flirlty Sasha. She play bowed, spun in circles, barked, presented the baby making area to him. She was ready. Before she arrived, the owner had put a bowl of home cooked doggie stew out for General. The huge Akita looked at Sasha, looked at the bowl, back at the female. He put a paw on Sasha's shoulder as if in apology, then turned away to flop down in front of the stew to eat. Slowly, his eyes half closed, he was set to enjoy every morsal. I expected the owner to be a bit embarrassed. After all the client had driven 500 miles to have her Akita bred. Watching his male dog choose stew over a pretty female, he just shook his head then mournfully said ,"Please Lord, don't ever let me get that old!" ___________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A classic! Dear Mom, Our Scoutmaster told us all to write to our parents in case you saw the flood on TV and worried. We are OK. Only one of our tents and two sleeping bags got washed away. Luckily, none of us got drowned because we were all up on the mountain looking for Chad when it happened. Oh yes, please call Chad's mother and tell her that he's OK. He can't write because of the cast. I got to ride on one of the search and rescue jeeps. It was neat. We never would have found him in the dark if it hadn't been for the lightning. Scoutmaster Webb got mad at Chad for going on a hike alone without telling anyone. Chad said he did tell him, but it was during the fire so he probably didn't hear him. Did you know that if you put a gas can on a fire, the gas can will blow up? Billy is going to look weird until his hair grows back. We will be home on Saturday if Scoutmaster Webb gets the car fixed. It wasn't his fault about the wreck. The brakes worked OK when we left. Scoutmaster Webb said that with a car that old you to have to expect something to break down; that's probably why he can't get insurance on it. We think it's a neat car. He doesn't care if we get it dirty, and if it's hot, sometimes he lets us ride in the tailgate. It gets pretty hot with ten people in a car. Scoutmaster Webb is a neat guy. Don't worry, he is a good driver. In fact, he is teaching Terry how to drive. But he only lets him drive on the mountain roads where there isn't any traffic. All we ever see up there are logging trucks. Guess what? We have all passed our first aid merit badges. When Dave dove in the lake and cut his arm, we got to see how a tourniquet works. Also, Wade and I threw up. Scoutmaster Webb said it probably was just food poisoning from the leftover chicken. He said they got sick that way with the food they ate in prison. I'm so glad he got out and became our scoutmaster. He said he sure figured out how to get things done better while he was doing his time. I have to go now. We are going into town to mail our letters and buy more bullets and dynamite. Don't worry about anything. We are fine. Love, Johnny ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Chad M Stitch, 35, Greensburg, Pennsylvania Neck tattoo with PA man's name foils fake ID The tattoo gave it away. A Greensburg police officer knew a Greensburg man was giving him a fake name, according to court papers. The evidence was right there in front of him tattooed on the suspect's neck. Chad M. Stitch, who turns 35 today, was riding in a car that was pulled over Wednesday after it was suspected to be involved in a drug deal, according to police. Stitch is being held in the Westmoreland County Prison on $300,000 bail. A witness reported to police an apparent drug deal involving a blue Chevrolet Malibu at 7:15 p.m. in a parking lot along South Main Street. At the same time, police saw the same car speeding in that area, eventually catching up with it close to the Cedar Street exit of Route 30, according to an affidavit. The passenger identified himself as Chad Majors, but Detective John Swank called his bluff. Swank had arrested Stitch in 2012. I told Stitch that he had provided a false name and I knew he was Chad Stitch, Swank wrote in the complaint. He denied that and stated that his name was Chad Majors. I observed Stitch tattooed on the left side of his neck and told Stitch that his name was tattooed on his neck. Police said they seized about 40 bags of suspected heroin stamped Super Mario and Polo, 23 Ecstasy tablets, marijuana and $180. Stitch is charged with drug offenses and false identification to police. He did not have an attorney listed in online court records. A preliminary hearing is set Thursday. A drunken driving charge is pending against the car's driver, police said.

Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to-be a lantern and said, "Here, you hold this high so I can see what I'm doing." Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world. "Whoa there," said the doctor. "Don't be in a rush to put the lantern down ... I think there's yet another one to come." Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a baby girl. "No, no, don't be in a great hurry to be putting down that lantern ... It seems there's yet another one coming!" cried the doctor.

The plants will grow through and make potatoes on top of the ground and the straw will shrink down during the summer. By Glenita If you don't have straw, an old bed sheet works even better. When you see the greens lifting the sheet, stab it with a knife and let the greens wiggle out. The potaoes will grow just fine below the sheet, and from early summer on you can reach under the sheet and grab a meal's worth of clean potatoes. That worked well for me even in the Yukon. In cold climate like the Yukon, a plastic tunnel above the potato greenery of course helps a lot. Have FUN!

A couple had two little boys ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous. They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew that if any mischief occurred in their town, their sons were probably involved. The boys' mother heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The clergyman agreed but asked to see them individually. So the mother sent her 8-year-old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the clergyman in the afternoon. The clergyman, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?" They boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there with his mouth hanging open, wide-eyed. So the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone, "Where is God!!?" Again the boy made no attempt to answer. So the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed, "WHERE IS GOD!?" The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "What happened? The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in BIG trouble this time, dude. God is missing - and they think WE did it!" ____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Father Norton woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just had to play golf. So... he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and persuaded him to say Mass for him that day. As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away. This way he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish. Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church! At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, "You're not going to let him get away with this, are you?" The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not." Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole. It WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE! St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why did you let him do that?" The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to brag to?" ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by (Previous mug shot) Ricky Wright, 36, Dallas, Texas A man tried to steal an suv with kids inside then the mom shot him. A Texas mother used her firearm to prevent a kidnapping after a man allegedly tried to steal her SUV with her two toddlers inside. Michelle Booker-Hicks was at a gas station in Dallas on Wednesday night when the attendant alerted her that a carjacker had begun to drive her car away, reported Dallas Morning News. She was able to jump into the back seat, and after a brief altercation, she pulled a gun from her glove compartment. The suspect, Ricky Wright, 36, was shot in the head and immediately crashed the vehicle into a utility pole. Wright was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. “I should have just emptied the whole clip but I didn’t. I didn’t. I just wanted to give him warning shot, that was it,” Booker said to KTVT-TV. “I’m not a killer or anything like that, but I do believe in defending what’s mine.” Wright was arrested and charged with two counts of unlawful restraint and unauthorized use of motor vehicle. He has an extensive criminal record, with more than 20 charges on a variety of crimes, reported ABC13. The mother and her children were unharmed.

Thanks to Chuck for this report: I was reminded of the time I was in Washington (the State) eating breakfast at a little diner in the middle of no-where. In the next booth were 3 state police chatting and having coffee. One of them told the story of the time they had set up a speed trap way out in the middle of nowhere. Long stretches between small towns. This guy comes along, really screaming. Gets a ticket. Goes a little way, stomps on the pedal and the next officer in the line stops him and gives him another ticket. The guy ends up with 5 speeding tickets. He was thinking that its so remote, there can't be another cop for miles. And especially after the 4 ticket he knows, there can't be another.

A fellow computer programmer for a consulting group had designed some software for one of our largest accounts. He asked my help in putting it into operation. At first, he handled most of the work. Eventually, though, he asked me to help with the last phase of the training. When I sat down with one woman and told her I would be showing her how to make changes to the files, she sighed with relief. "I'm so glad you're teaching me instead of him." Surprised, I said that my colleague was far more experienced than I was. "Yes," she said, "but I feel much more comfortable with you. I get nervous around smart people." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Recycled Water For Plants Don't pour water that you use for cooking vegetables down the drain.

According to a Facebook post from the Martin County Sheriff's Office, Priscilla Corpus and her alleged partner in crime Jeffrey Scot Robinson was taken into custody on Tuesday. According to TCPalm.com, staffers at Dunkin Donuts tipped off cops to what appeared to be a fake bill. Deputies stopped the pair's trek in Stuart as they were motoring to their next location to hit up. In their car, along with numerous bags of food from restaurants along the Treasure Coast, deputies found more than $500 in counterfeit $20 and $50 bills, along with more than $1,500 in real U.S. currency. "The duo also had two fake guns, a number of wigs and a change of clothing," read the report. Corpus, who is from North Lauderdale, admitted to detectives she would go to various fast/casual food chains like Dunkin Donuts, Panera and McDonald's and pay for a meal with a counterfeit bill, then get authentic money in change. Robinson, who is from Pompano Beach, was the driver, but had no valid license, said the sheriff's department. Corpus, 21, was charged with uttering a forged instrument (three counts), possessing forged bills and permitting an unauthorized operator to drive. She is being held at the Martin County Jail on a $20,400 bond, according to deputies. Robinson was charged with operating a vehicle without a license, and resisting arrest without violence. The 19 year old, who was not involved with any phony cash transactions, cops say, was released from the Martin County Jail on $950 bond.

"Gladly," responded the good man. When the church magazine came out a few days later, the elder turned at once to the "appreciation" column. There he read: "The minister extends his thanks to Elder Brown for his gift of fruit and for the spirit in which it was given." ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Therese Patricia Okoumou, 44, Staten Island, New York Fashist climbs to foot of Statue of Liberty Okoumou, a fanatic Fashist, climbed to the base of the Statue of Liberty to protest the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, which enforces decades-long federal immigration law that predates President Trump's tenure. She is a member of Rise and Resist, an anti-Trump group that claims because they are kinda stupid but noisy, they overrule the elected government, which held an Abolish ICE banner at the foot of the Statue of Liberty before her climb. The Hilarites demand open borders and to allow free and unchecked access for MS13 and other welfare recipients. And as Fashists, they claim they are right and the elected government is wrong. Okoumou vowed to stay atop the Statue of Liberty until all the illegal-alien children are released. In reality, Okoumou came down two hours into her failed publicity stunt after being taken into custody and jailed by the cops. The morons don't realize that the kids of arrested criminals, no matter whether the criminals had burglared into a bank or a country, can not be released onto the street, but have to remain with Child Services. Unlike the Obama era cages, nowadays Child services places the kids with foster homes or juvenile detention schools. Liberty Island had to evacuate 4,500 tourists on Independence Day thanks to Okoumou and her motley crew of fashist protesters. Okoumou is now sitting in jail along with six of her "Rise and Resist" crew, who ruined a holiday for innocent bystanders and police alike. Okoumou is facing charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct, and interfering with government functions. In August 2017, Okoumou was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault for injuring a cop while resisting arrest during a protest. She has a history of filing unsuccessful race-discrimination lawsuits. In 2003, she filed a wrongful-termination lawsuit claiming racial discrimination after being fired from a battered-women's shelter called Safe Horizons. According to court records, Okoumou's boss said she was fired because she was rude and unprofessional to clients and colleagues. She lost the lawsuit. In 2007, Okoumou unsuccessfully filed another race discrimination complaint against a group home in Staten Island. It's unclear who's paying Okoumou's bills while she participates in weekly anti-Trump protests, or why she didn't launch similar protests when Barack Obama jailed and mass-deported illegal aliens during his eight years as president. The only change is that under Trump the detention facilities and procedures were drastically improved.

_____________________________________________________ Classic! Just as John got in the door, after staying at the bar a bit too long, the cuckoo clock in the hall started up and cuckooed 3 times. He realized his wife would probably wake up, so he cuckooed another 9 times. He was really proud of himself, having a quick witty solution, even when smashed, to escape a possible conflict. Next morning the wife asked him what time he got in and he told her 12 o'clock. She didn't seem disturbed at all. Whew! Got away with that one! She then told him that they needed a new cuckoo clock. When he asked her why, she said "Well, it cuckooed 3 times, said 'Oh, f@#%,' cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another 3 times, snickered, and finally cuckooed twice more, and then it farted." ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by William Banks, 49, Spartanburg, South Carolina When his waitress told him he was too drunk for another drink, he got violent. A Wild Wing Cafe waitress made the call to stop serving drinks to a customer who was too intoxicated, and when the man was cut off, it was the start to a violent, drunken outburst, police say. William Banks was outraged when he was denied another alcoholic beverage shortly after midnight June 22 at the popular chicken wing restaurant, according to the Spartanburg Police Department. In less than an hour after being refused service, the South Carolina man threatened to shoot multiple members of the Wild Wing Cafe staff, assaulted his waitress, then told the officer arresting him he would get him fired, police reported. The waitress said she cut Banks off from alcohol after observing how drunk he was, causing him to become "irate and (he) started cussing her out when she refused him anymore alcohol," according to the police report. Police said Banks then tried to order a drink from the manager, who also refused him service because of his intoxicated state. Banks responded by swearing at the manager and "threatened to shoot her," police say. Banks then returned his focus to his waitress, directing vulgarities at her and "threatening to shoot her, as well," police reported. As the waitress tried to walk away, Banks struck her in the head, according to the incident report, which said a bartender witnessed the assault. At this point, the son of a staff member removed Banks from the restaurant by "physically carrying him outside," police said. The responding police officer found Banks walking down the street and detained the 49-year-old man, according to an incident report. A person who was with Banks at the restaurant during the incident told police "Banks was extremely intoxicated ... and knew Banks was wrong," the report said. After the waitress identified Banks, he was arrested. As Banks was being taken to the Spartanburg County Detention Center, he threatened the officer's job, saying "he knew who worked at the Spartanburg Police Department," according to the incident report. Banks, of Spartanburg, was charged with third-degree assault and battery, and trespassing after notice, according to jail records, which showed he was released the same day without bond.
Tech Support Pits From: Frieda Re: Firefox poblem Dear Webby, What's up with Firefox. All of a sudden when I try tiopen some mail I get a pop up saying couldn't load XPCOM. If Firefox decided to dump XP computers they gave me no warning. I went to Firefox sometime ago because Google kept saying a lot of my contacts did not have a secure site. Everything was fine until a couple days ago. How are you getting along? Sure has been an odd summer down here in States, weatherwise. Any thoughts on my problem will be appreciated. Frieda Dear Frieda Your FireFox is trashed. This method has worked for most of the users and it is very easy to follow. Get into Chrome or Internet Explorer or another browser, simply head over to the following address to download the latest setup file for Firefox, run it and install. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ By the way, if you use Chrome or Gmail, the message of sites not being secure is meaningless. It just tells you that some sites, that don't need security, like for example the Humor Letter, don't have the same security as the bank. So what?

_____________________________________________________ Interview with Yogi Berra Interviewer: Can you explain jazz? Yogi: I can't, but I will. 90% of all jazz is half improvisation. The other half is the part people play while others are playing something they never played with anyone who played that part. So if you play the wrong part, its right. If you play the right part, it might be right if you play it wrong enough. But if you play it too right, it's wrong. Interviewer: I don't understand. Yogi: Anyone who understands jazz knows that you can't understand it. It's too complicated. That's whats so simple about it. Interviewer: Do you understand it? Yogi: No. That's why I can explain it. If I understood it, I wouldnt know anything about it. Interviewer: Are there any great jazz players alive today? Yogi: No. All the great jazz players alive today are dead. Except for the ones that are still alive. But so many of them are dead, that the ones that are still alive are dying to be like the ones that are dead. Some would kill for it. Interviewer: What is syncopation? Yogi: That's when the note that you should hear now happens either before or after you hear it. In jazz, you don't hear notes when they happen because that would be some other type of music. Other types of music can be jazz, but only if they're the same as something different from those other kinds. Interviewer: Now I really don't understand. Yogi: I haven't taught you enough for you to not understand jazz ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Davon Deangelo Fuller 23, Holly Hill, South Carolina SC crook out of jail for 30 minutes then stole a police car A South Carolina man was back behind bars less than 24 hours after being released from a Lowcountry jail.

Fuller stole a car a Berkeley County Sheriff's Office deputy's car from the detention center parking lot, live5news.com reported. Police said Fuller was caught on surveillance footage hanging around outside the jail after his release. The video showed him attempting to open several cars, according to abcnews4.com, which said he wasn't successful until he got to the patrol car of Berkeley County Sheriff's deputy Javon Dingle. The car was unlocked, and a spare set of keys was not the only thing inside, live5news.com reported. Police said that Dingle's service pistol was also in the vehicle when Fuller stole the car.

He has not had a bond hearing for the most recent charge.

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

Fred had been a faithful Christian and was in the hospital with heart trou8ble. The family called their pastor to stand with them. As the pastor stood next to the bed, Fred's condition appeared to deteriorate and he motioned frantically for something to write on. The pastor lovingly handed him a pen and a piece of paper, and Fred used his last bit of energy to scribble a note, then he died. The pastor thought it best not to look at the note at that time, so he placed it in his jacket pocket. Several days later, at the funeral, as the pastor was finishing the eulogy, he realized that he was wearing the same jacket that he was wearing when Fred had died. He said, "you know, ol' Fred handed me a note just before he died. I haven't looked at it, but knowing Fred, I'm sure there's a word of inspiration there for us all. Let's have his son read it to us!" His son opened the note, and read aloud, "You're standing on my oxygen tube, you useless windbag!" ____________________________________________________
