______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Isael Lima, 18, Belleview, Florida Florida man charged with impersonating deputy, stealing patrol car A Florida man is facing several charges after he stole a deputy's uniform and patrol car and impersonated him while he was out of town, according to Marion County deputies. Detectives were called to investigate a burglary at a Marion County deputy's home Sept. 24. Deputy Yoandy Miranda told deputies that he left town for a couple of days and when he got home, he noticed someone had entered his locked bedroom. He said someone was also inside his patrol car, but nothing was stolen from the home or car. A day earlier, Belleview police officers were called to a disturbance at a convenience store. Belleview officers say they spoke with a man in a MCSO deputy uniform who identified himself as an off-duty deputy. Isael Lima, 18, introduced himself to MCSO Sgt. Bobby Levay as "Deputy Miranda" and said he witnessed a physical disturbance between two people at the gas station and asked for BPD's assistance, according to police. Levay said he was not personally familiar with Miranda and did not realize Lima was impersonating a deputy at that time. The next day, Miranda contacted Levay to let him know about the possible burglary to his home and car. Levay realized that the "Deputy Miranda" he met the previous day was not the real Deputy Miranda. Using footage from the BPD officer's body camera, detectives and Miranda identified the person at the gas station as Miranda's nephew Lima. Lima lives with Miranda and admitted to breaking into Miranda's room and stealing his uniform and issued equipment while he was away, deputies said. Lima told detectives that he initially put on the uniform and drove to his girlfriend's home because he wanted to impress her. He said he stole Miranda's patrol car, dressed in his MCSO uniform and conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle. Lima told detectives that he picked up a friend who rode with him in the patrol car and that his friend recorded video of the traffic stop. That video was obtained by MCSO detectives. Lima also admitted to impersonating Miranda at the convenience store in Belleview with BPD officers, deputies said. Lima was arrested and charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle, grand theft of a firearm, openly carrying prohibited weapon, theft of law enforcement equipment from an emergency vehicle, burglary of a conveyance, armed burglary of a dwelling, impersonating a law enforcement official, and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer. "I don't think this man realized the danger he put himself in by trying to impersonate a deputy sheriff," Chief Deputy Robert Douglas said. "Our deputies undergo extensive, ongoing training to be able to do their job safely. Ensuring public safety and trust are our priorities and this is why we take this type of crime so seriously." _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ross Re: Site with manuals Dear Webby, Is this a scam or what ?

The passenger sat in the backseat, clutching the door handle and wondering if she could expect to survive the trip. The cabdriver sped through the crowded streets,weaving in and out of traffic. The passenger watched as one pedestrian after another ran to avoid being run down by her lunatic driver. She looked ahead and saw a truck double-parked on the narrow street,but not only did the taxi driver fail to slow down, he actually accelerated as he approached the truck. He slipped his cab through the available space with an inch or two to spare on either side. "Driver!" the passenger screamed,"Are you trying to get us both killed?" "Relax,lady," he said, "just do what I do. Close your eyes."

The little girl was sitting in her grandfather's lap as he read her a goodnight story. From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek. She was alternately stroking her own cheek and his. Finally she spoke. "Granddaddy, did God make you?" "Yes, sweetheart" he answered, "God made me a long time ago." "Oh" she said, then "Granddaddy, did God make me too?" "Yes, indeed honey" he assured her. "God made you just a little while ago." "Oh" she said. Feeling their respective faces again, she observed, "God's getting better at it now isn't he?" ____________________________________________________ From Carl I love your daily letter.

Later, he got a bill for $200, which he paid. The next month, he got another bill for $200, which he also paid, figuring it was some incidental expense. Bills for $200 kept arriving every month, and finally the man called his brother again to find out what was going on. "Well," said the other brother, "you said to do something nice for Dad. So I rented him a tuxedo." _____________________________________________________ An airline pilot with poor eyesight managed to pass his periodic vision exams by memorizing the eye charts beforehand. One year, though, his doctor used a new chart that the pilot had never before seen. The pilot proceeded to recite the old chart and the doctor realized that he'd been suckered all these years. Then the doctor could not contain his curiosity. "How is it that someone with your eyesight can manage to pilot a plane at all? I mean, how for example do you taxi the plane out to the runway?" "Well," said the pilot, "it's really not very hard. All you have to do is follow the instructions of the ground controller over the radio. And besides, the landmarks have all become quite familiar to me over the years." "I can understand that," replied the doctor. "But what about the take-off?" "Again, a simple procedure. I just aim the plane down the runway, go to full throttle, pull back on the stick, and off we go!" "But once you're aloft?" "Oh, everything's fully automated these days. The flight computer knows our destination, and all I have to do is hit the auto-pilot and the plane pretty much flies itself." "But I still don't see how you land!" "Oh, that's the easiest part of all. All I do is use the airport's radio beacon to get us on the proper glide path. Then I just throttle down and wait for the co-pilot to yell, 'AIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!', then I pull the nose up, and the plane lands just fine!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Father Murphy was playing golf with a parishioner.

He carefully lined up the putt, but the ball curved around the hole instead of going in. "HOOVER!!!!" By this time, his opponent couldn't withhold his curiosity any longer, and asked why the priest said "Hoover".

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Ryan Wilder, 32, Duck Key, Florida Florida man arrested after killing tenant during eviction dispute Ryan Wilder was in a Florida Keys jail Saturday, accused of killing his parents' tenant in Duck Key. Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies said Wilder, 32, was evicting Kenneth Palicki and Colleen Lyons from his parents' property at 162 North Indies Drive when the shooting happened Friday evening. Wilder was removing their things when Palicki, 47, got home and told Lyons, 25, to call the police. During the 911 call, Lyons said Wilder shot Palicki several times. "Lyons then saw Wilder walk out to his truck, gun still in his hand, and get in," sheriff's spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. "She gave dispatchers a description of the truck and its direction of travel as Wilder drove away." Sgt. Joel Slough stopped Wilder and arrested him. Palicki was taken to Fisherman's Hospital in Marathon, where doctors pronounced him dead. He had four gunshot wounds to his left forearm, mid-back and upper thigh. Palicki and Lyons had received an eviction notice requiring them to leave the house by Aug. 23. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Helen Re: Multiple Spam Controls Dear Webby, First, kudos to your forever refreshing Humor Letter.

From Bill: After four years of separation, my wife and I finally divorced amicably. I wanted to date again, but I had no idea of how to start, so I decided to look in the personals column of the local newspaper. After reading through all the listings, I circled three that seemed possible in terms of age and interest, but I put off calling them. Two days later, there was a message on my answering machine from my ex-wife. "I came over to your house to borrow some tools today and saw the ads you circled in the paper. Don't call the one in the second column. That's me, and the last one you circled, that`s mom."

Daily tip from Painted Halloween Jars These are scarecrow and pumpkin decorated electric tealight holders. They could also be made as decorative treat jars Materials recycled jar and lid spray paint (see instructions for colors) raffia, flowers, and other decorative elements, as desired clear sealer (optional) electric tea light Instructions Wash and dry a jar of any size. Remove labels. Spray paint jar and lid (flesh, beige for Scarecrow, terracotta or orange for pumpkin). Allow to dry. Glue lid (inside facing upward) to top of jar (I used E- 6000). If you desire to use these as treat jars, do not glue lid to top of jar. Decorate face as desired using paint pens or craft paint. Spray lightly with a clear sealer to keep paint from scratching. For scarecrow, glue raffia around brim of hat, trim for bangs. To make hat, decorate a straw hat with artificial flowers, buttons and ribbon to your liking. I painted a wooden triangle to resemble a crow! Attach hat to lid (I again used E-6000). Place electric tealight on lid. Because of the raffia and straw hat this is extremely FLAMMABLE, I recommend using an electric tea light instead of a regular candle. Made in a variety of shapes and sizes, these look adorable on a mantle or porch. And can be used year after year! By Diana, Louisville, KY Editor's Note: This project should never be used with a traditional candle flame, it is very flammable. Only battery operated tealights or other non-flame candle substites should be used. Tip provided by ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ A young woman decides to try horseback riding, even though she has had no lessons or prior experience. She mounts the horse unassisted, and the horse immediately springs into action. As it gallops along at a steady and rhythmic pace, she begins to slip from the saddle. In terror, she grabs for the horse's mane, but cannot get a firm grip. She tries to throw her arms around the horse's neck, but she slides down the side of the horse anyway! The horse gallops along, seemingly oblivious of its slipping rider. Finally, losing her frail grip, she attempts to leap away from the horse and throw herself to safety. Unfortunately, her foot becomes entangled in the stirrup, and she is now at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as her head is struck against the ground over and over and over. As her head is battered against the ground and she is mere moments away from unconsciousness, to her great fortune, Frank the Walmart greeter, sees her and unplugs the horse.

A man from Miami was arrested in Key Largo on Tuesday night after deputies said he broke into a home to take a nap in the air conditioning. Monroe County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a gated community when a security officer reported that Michael Brandt, 22, was acting suspicious and fled away from him on a bicycle, WPLG reports. When deputies found Brandt outside the neighborhood, he got off his bike, jumped into the water, and swam away.

Thank you. Can you tell me if there is a way to record from a Cassette to a CD? I have an Iomega Super DVD/CD burner that I can record from my camcorder to, but haven't figured out the cassette. Thanks for any help. Jessie Dear Jessie Yes, sure there is a way. Connect a cable with male 1/8" headphone plugs on each end from the headphone socket on your tape player to the AUX-IN or the microphone socket on your computer, then record it with any sound recording software. The AUX-IN socket is the one that has neither a headphone nor a microphone symbol, but something weird and incomprehensible. often it is color coded blue. Most sound cards come with some basic sound recording software, and you can find lots more with Google. Windows Sound Recorder works too. Recording quality is the same. The difference between different recording software is usually in how easy or complicated it is to splice and edit. Almost all of them are either free or have a free trial period. Just try a bunch of them and find the one that suits you the best. Some of the not-free programs even have fancy scratch and static filters. Save the music in MP3 or MP4 format, so that you can play it in Audio CD and MP3 or MP4 players. Have FUN! DearWebby

From Jerry: Dear Webby, I know that St. Patrick's Day is over, but couldn't pass this by. Jerry An Irishman had been drinking at a pub all night. The bartender finally said that the bar is closing. So the Irishman stood up to leave and fell flat on his face. He tried to stand one more time; same result. He figured he'll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up. Once outside he stood up and fell flat on his face. So he decided to crawl the 4 blocks to his home. When he arrived at the door he stood up and again fell flat on his face. He crawled through the door and into his bedroom. When he reached his bed he tried one more time to stand up. This time he managed to pull himself upright, but he quickly fell right into bed and is sound asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow. He was awakened the next morning to his wife standing over him, shouting, "So, you've been out drinking again!!" "What makes you say that?" he asked, putting on an innocent look. "The pub called. You left your wheelchair there again."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kenneth Gleason, 23, Baton Rouge, Louisiana Louisiana man arrested for killing two black men may have been racially motivated. A Louisiana man accused of killing two black men in what may have been racially motivated attacks last week reportedly had a copy of an Adolf Hitler speech in his home. A police source, speaking to The Associated Press, confirmed the unsettling discovery by authorities at the Baton Rouge home of Kenneth Gleason. The 23-year-old, reportedly an Eagle Scout, faces two counts of first-degree murder for the separate shootings. Authorities declined to comment on the discovery of a speech by the Nazi leader or on a possible motive in the killings at a Tuesday news conference, saying only that they’re looking into all possibilities at this time, including whether the killings were motivated by racism. Hitler had made thousands of speeches and until he went nuts after England turned his traditional European border re- alignements into a World War, he was considered quite smart even though he was a socialist. He was even New York Times Man Of The Year. Some people analyzed his speeches and compared them to Hillary`s campaign speeches. Until he went nuts, his speeches were mostly about socialism and rebuilding after WWI. Baton Rouge police Sgt. L’Jean McKneely had previously told the AP that there was “a strong possibility that it could be racially motivated.” Gleason was arrested over the weekend on unrelated drug charges after authorities said they linked his red car to the deaths of 59-year-old Bruce Cofield on Sept. 12 and 49- year-old Donald Smart on Sept. 14. Police had said that the victims, who were shot first from a car and then again at close range, appeared targeted at random. Gleason posted bail Sunday on the drug charges before being arrested again in the slaying investigation as well as for suspicion of aggravated criminal damage for a third shooting in which a gunman fired at the home of a black family in Gleason’s neighborhood. Police said shell casings recovered from the scenes matched and that Gleason’s DNA was found on some of them. A conviction on the murder charges could bring a death sentence, said East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore III, who described the attacks as cold and calculated. “Had there not been a swift conclusion to this case, I feel confident that this killer probably would have killed again,” said Interim Police Chief Jonny Dunnam. Gleason, who was seen wearing what appeared to be a T-shirt for the Boy Scouts’ rugged Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico during his arrest Tuesday, earned the top Eagle Scout rank in 2012 after completing a construction project for a United Methodist Church, according to The Advocate in Baton Rouge. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Adding .ico picture to email Dear Webby, As you can see, after all these years thanks to you, I am able to add a signature to my Eudora e-mails.

A psychiatrist who had tired of listening to the assorted troubles and dreams that poured from his consulting couch, rigged up a tape recorder. Explaining to his patients that he could analyze a case better this way, he would turn on the machine, tell the patient to keep talking and quietly slip out for a beer. This worked well for a while, but one day he looked up from his beer to see the patient who was supposed to be upstairs on the couch. "What are you doing here?" asked the doctor. "Well, Doc," said the patient, "I've taped my dreams and stuff for the last couple of days, and now my tape recorder is upstairs talking to your tape recorder."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Alicia Nicole Scarduzio, 49, Shelley Lyn Gemberling, 20, Pasco, Florida Floriduh mom, daughter arressted for beating a woman unconscious in road-rage Two Pasco County women face battery charges after a witness recorded them beating another woman during a road-rage encounter. Investigators said at 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday, mother and daughter, Shelley Lyn Gemberling, 49, and Alicia Nicole Scarduzio, 20, got into an argument with Emily Bailey at the intersection of Little Road and Trouble Creek Road in New Port Richey. Bailey was inside her vehicle, which was in the left lane of Little Road. Gemberling and Scarduzio’s vehicle was in the right lane. “It was the longest red light of my life. They kept screaming at me, telling me they wanted to f—–g kill me. I just wanted the light to change,” Bailey said. “I never thought they would get out of their car and run toward me and pull me out of my vehicle.” Investigators said Gemberling and Scarduzio got out of their vehicle and approached the open driver’s window, reached in and grabbed Bailey by her hair and neck and pulled her outside through the window. Bailey, a veterinary technician, said she fell to the ground and then Gemberling and Scarduzio began punching her on her face and body. She says she thought she was going to die. “They tried to drag me through my window. When I looked into the woman’s eyes, I saw pure rage. It looked like she wanted to kill me,” Bailey said. “During those times, the daughter said, stop hitting my mom. Quit hitting my mom. And, then she hit me again. And, everything went black.” Detectives say Bailey lost consciousness and suffered a broken nose and other injuries. Gemberling and Scarduzio did not stop beating her until a citizen intervened. “Why were you attacking me when you were in the wrong? You cut me off,” Bailey said. “It could have been avoided. No one had to get hurt. No one had to go to jail. These were choices that they made.” A witness reported seeing Gemberling pulling Bailey out of the vehicle through the window. The witness said she did not see Bailey strike the suspects at any time, but did see the suspects strike her. “The mom grabbed me by my throat and started squeezing my neck. The daughter grabbed me by the back of my hair and started pulling,” Bailey recalled. The witness also said that Scarduzio hit Bailey multiple times while she was on the ground. “All I could think about was my son,” Bailey said. Video recorded by a witness showed Bailey on the ground –motionless- while Scarduzio hit and kicked her until a guy from a car further back ran up and stopped them from beating and stomping the unconscious woman. “It’s hard to watch. It’s very traumatizing. I think I’ve cried the first four times I’ve seen it,” Bailey said. “I question every time getting in the car now. Definitely, I don’t want to beep my horn at anyone.” Bailey told deputies that Gemberling and Scarduzio approached her because of a traffic incident. As Bailey tried to raise her window, the pair reached into her vehicle and grabbed her by her hair and throat, then pulled her out of the vehicle and began beating her. Deputies said Scarduzio denied punching Bailey in the face but did say she hit her with her open hand. Gemberling allegedly told deputies that Bailey got out of her vehicle and pushed her. Alicia Nicole Scarduzio, 20, and Kelly Lyn Gamberling, 49, were arrested and charged with burglary and aggravated battery and were booked into the Land O’ Lakes Detention Center. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Gary Re: Adding picture to emails Dear Webby, I would like to know if there is an easy way to add an image to all my outgoing emails..please help.. thank you in advance...

Ralph arrived at his Internal Revenue Service audit accompanied by his attorney. Going over his records, the IRS official said, "Well, sir, it appears that you live at a much higher level than your reported employment income. How do you explain that? Before the attorney could speak, Ralph replied, "I love to gamble and I usually win." The skeptical official gave him a disbelieving look. "I can prove it," said Ralph. "How about a demonstration?" The official thought a moment and said, "Okay. Go ahead." Ralph said, "I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye." The auditor thought a moment and said, "No way! It's a bet!" Ralph removed his glass eye and bit it. The official's jaw dropped. Ralph said, "Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye." The official could tell Ralph wasn't blind, so he took the bet. Ralph then removed his dentures and bit his good eye. The stunned official was now three grand in the hole! "Want to go double or nothing?" Ralph asked. "I'll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on your desk and use that wastebasket by the door over there as a urinal, and never get a drop anywhere in between." The auditor, twice burned, was cautious now, but there's no way this guy could manage that stunt, so he agreed again! Ralph climbed up on the auditor's desk, missed the wastebasket completely, and pretty much soaked the desk. The official grinned. He had just turned a huge loss into a huge win! But then he noticed that Ralph's attorney looked ashen and was visibly shaking. "Are you okay?" he asked. The lawyer replied, "Not really. Before we arrived, Ralph bet me twenty thousand dollars he'd mess on your desk and you'd be happy about it!"

Daily tip from Oatmeal Muffins By Holly805 Total Time: 45 minutes Yield: about 2 dozen Source: Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook (1968) Ingredients: 2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats 2 cups milk 2 cups all-purpose flour 2/3 cup sugar 6 tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 1 tsp cinnamon 2 eggs 1/2 cup canola oil Steps: Combine quick oats and milk in a medium size bowl. Let soak 15 minutes. While the oats are soaking, combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Set aside. In a small bowl, beat the eggs until combined. Add the oil to the eggs and beat until light. Combine the egg mixture with the oats and milk. Make a "well" in the flour mixture and gradually pour in the wet ingredients. Mix gently, making sure all the flour from the bottom of the bowl is combined with the liquid. Pour into prepared muffin pans, each cup 3/4 full, and bake 18-20 minutes at 425 F. If you end up with spare batter, estimate how many muffin cups you will need to prepare. Fill the remaining cups halfway with water to prevent scorching and bake as normal. Enjoy! Tip provided by If you don`t like flour, you can fake it by adding a couple of mashed bananas, or left over pumpkin pie filling, or shredded apple or whatever you got handy. Adding an extra egg does not hurt either. Instead of the ridiculous amount of sugar, you can add raisins, dried currants, or if you want them sweet for kids, shaved dried dates. The hard blocks of dried dates are very efficient sweeteners. Use sparingly! Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Earl for this story: It was the middle of one of the coldest nights of the winter and Ole and Lena were on their way home on a slippery road. Just as they came around a corner, Lena yelled to Ole to look out. Ole swerved and hit the brakes and came to a sliding stop. "What's the matter Lena", Ole said. "There was a mother skunk and 2 little baby skunks in the road. I'm afraid that you may have killed the mother skunk. We have to go back and look." Ole reluctantly backs the car up and sure enough, there lays the mother skunk in the middle of the road dead and the two baby skunks are by the side of the road. Lena says, "Ole we have to take the babies or they're going to freeze to death." Ole argues against it, but eventually gives in to Lena and Lena goes out and picks up the baby skunks. After returning to the car they start on their way home again. Well, the heater in the car isn't very good and Lena tells Ole that they have to do something to keep the babies warm or they'll freeze to death. Ole finally tells Lena, "Just put them up under your skirt and that will keep them warm". Lena replies, "But Ole, what about the smell?" Ole replies, "Don't worry about it, they'll get used to it". __________________________________________________

Good Morning, ,
Today is Friday, September 22
Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

Summer is over. Happy Fall (season)!
We had cold rain today, and snow on the West side of the
valley. No Gullible Warming here, I guess not enough people
here believe in it.

Hopefully the hurricanes in the South will settle down soon!
I am glad all subscribers are OK, and hope all good people
are safe.

Walked to my doctor today for the annual prescription update
and diet consultation. He asked what kind of oil I use.
5-40, all season. 
He didn`t like that. For frying! 
I use butter. 
For salad!
Apple cider vinegar and a drop of coconut oil.
He had a fit about that. Apparently coconut oil is only good
for yuppies in Mexifornia, but for everybody else, it has
gone out of fashion and is bad.
Olive oil is in fashion again.
Ok, Ok. I still got some in the back of the cupboard from
when it was in fashion last time.

And so it went through everything I eat.
Actually, because I am trying to beat Diabetes with diet, I
dont really eat that much anyway.

Eventually we got to the gout in my right hand little
finger. I told him that the prescribed pills didn`t do any
good, but that many subscribers recommended Alpurinol, and
that Sven recommended Super strength cherry concentrate
The health food stores in the nearest town charge $19 - $39
for 90 capsules (one month). So I googled. has them for $11.98.
Click, click, done.

Next day the capsules were here.
3 days later the white spots looking like blisters, but are
actually uric acid crystal deposits, started disappearing
and the swelling is going down.
Thank you Sven!

Have Fun!

From Marina: Last summer, my husband, Steve, took me camping for the first time. At every opportunity, he passed along outdoor- survival lore. One day we got lost hiking in the deep woods. Steve tried the usual tactics to determine direction - moss on the trees (there was no moss), direction of the sun (it was an overcast day). Just as I was beginning to panic, he spotted a small cabin off in the distance. Steve pulled out his binoculars, studied the cabin, turned and led us right back to our camp. "That was terrific," I said. "How did you do it?" "Simple," he replied. "In this part of the country all TV satellite dishes point south."

Could have been a love story
____________________________________________________ Two Irishmen were adrift in a life boat following a dramatic escape from a burning freighter. While rummaging through the boat's provisions, one of the men stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To the amazement of the castaways, a genie came forth. This particular genie, however, stated that he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three. Without giving much thought to the matter the man blurted out, "Make the entire ocean into beer!" The genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the entire sea turned into the finest brew ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously, the genie vanished. Only the gentle lapping of beer on the hull broke the stillness as the men considered their circumstances. One man looked disgustedly at the other whose wish had been granted. After a long, tension filled moment, he spoke: "Nice going, idiot! All that beer, and only such a small boat for a urinal !" __________________________________________________

He lies on the sidewalk as a crowd of spectators gathers around. "A priest. Somebody get me a priest!" the man gasps. A policeman checks the crowd, but there's no priest, no minister, no man of God of any kind. "A priest, please," the injured man says again. Then out of the crowd steps a wrinkled and wizened Jewish man of advanced years. "Mr. Policeman," says the man, "I'm not a priest. I'm not even a Catholic. But for 50 years now I've lived behind St. Mary's Catholic Church on Third Avenue, and every night I've listened to the Catholic rites. Maybe I can be of some comfort to this man." The policeman agrees and brings the old man over to where the man lies. The old man kneels down on the sidewalk, leans over the injured victim and intones in a solemn sing-song voice: "Under the B - 4. Under the I - 19. Under the N - 38. Under the G - 54.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Matthew James Phelps, 28, Raleigh, North Carolina Aspiring pastor arrested for murdering wife blames it on cough syrup A man in Raleigh, North Carolina, said that after he awoke from a dream early Friday morning, he found his wife dead on the floor and, as he told a 911 dispatcher, I think I did it. I have blood all over me, and there's a bloody knife on the bed. And I think I did it, Matthew James Phelps, an aspiring pastor, told the dispatcher. I can't believe this. I can't believe this. Phelps, who jail records list as 28 years old, blamed his alleged black out on cough syrup he took earlier in the evening to help him sleep. I took more medicine that I should have, he said. I took Coricidin Cough and Cold ... because I know it can make you feel good. A lot of times I can't sleep at night. Officers came to the couple's house and found Lauren Ashley- Nicole Phelps, 29, wounded but alive. The woman, who taught Sunday school, was taken to an area hospital where she died, according to the Associated Press. Her husband of almost a year was taken to the Wake County Jail and charged with murder. He remains behind bars and will make his first appearance before a judge on Tuesday, according to court records. On the 911 call, the dispatcher asked Matthew Phelps if he thought his wife was beyond help from her wounds. He replied: I don't know. I'm too scared to get close to her. Phelps worked for a lawn service company and was a graduate of Clear Creek Baptist Bible College in Kentucky, where he studied mission and evangelism, according to the Raleigh News & Observer, which cited his Facebook page. Phelps may be blaming cough syrup for the alleged murder, but investigators will be looking for other reasons for the woman's death, according to former FBI agent Brad Garrett. The "this medicine made me do it" excuse is a common way for people in his position to respond, Garrett told the AP. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dan Re: File Explorer Dear Webby, where do you find " windows file explorer"? dan Dear Dan Right-click on START select Open Windows EXPLORER Have FUN!

If the butter is frozen, you may have to repeat this, but be careful not to microwave it for too long, it will quickly become liquid.

Then she is introduced to the eldest girl, named Leighroy! "All right," says the caseworker. "I'm seeing a pattern here. Are they ALL named Leroy?" Their Momma replied, "Well, yes-it makes it easier. When it is time to get them out of bed and ready for school, I yell, 'Leroy!' An' when it's time for dinner, I just yell 'Leroy!' an' they all comes arunnin.'

______________________________________________________ Reported by Moe An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Sean Harris, 33, Laporte, Indiana Man robbed gas station; caught after he ran out of gas While making his getaway, a man suspected in robbing a LaCrosse gas station got caught after he ran out of gas. He also was allegedly intoxicated, according to LaPorte County Sheriff's police. Sean Harris, 33, is being held in jail without bail. He was arraigned Friday in LaPorte Circuit Court on a felony robbery charge. Police allege that late Wednesday morning the South Bend area man implied to a store clerk at the BP gas station in Lacrosse that he had a gun. He fled the store southbound on U.S 421 with an undisclosed amount of food and beverage items along with cigarettes. No money was taken and no weapon was displayed, said LaPorte County Police chief deputy Ron Heeg. He said Harris was eastbound on Ind. 8 in Starke County when an Indiana State Police trooper, attempting to the locate the getaway vehicle, found it stopped along the two-lane highway. A Starke County sheriff's deputy came along and assisted with the arrest, police said. Heeg said the suspect ran out of fuel and allegedly had a blood alcohol level higher than the limit for legally operating a motor vehicle. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Wes Re: Sorting by size Dear Webby, I used to be able to look at a directory of all my files on Windows to see if there were any big files that I could delete, but am unable to locate a way to do that now.

Daily tip from Keep Spaghetti from Boiling Over Add a teaspoon of olive oil to your spaghetti water to prevent it from boiling over. Butter or another vegetable oil can be substituted for olive oil. A pat of butter also works well to prevent rice from boiling over. Tip provided by There is no need for long boiling! Save your money! Bring water, a titch of salt and a pat of butter to a boil, add the pasta slowly so as not to kill the boil, wait until you have a really rolling boil, cover it and turn the burner off. Cover the pot with a tea cozy or towel and let it sit until the pasta is tender, usually about 20 minutes. If the pasta is not served immediately, then before straining it through a colander, add half a cup of cold water and give it a quick stir. That way it does not glue to a lump, stays flexible and can be reheated when needed. DearWebby ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Time to run this one again: JESUS AND SATAN ON THE COMPUTER Jesus and Satan were having an ongoing argument about who was better on his computer. They had been going at it for days, and God was tired of hearing all the bickering. Finally, God said, "Cool it. I am going to set up a test which will take two hours and I will judge who does the better job." So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away. They moused. They did spreadsheets. They wrote reports. They sent faxes. They sent e-mail. They sent out e-mail with attachments. They downloaded. They did some genealogy reports. They made cards. They did every known job. But, ten minutes before the time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, the rain poured and, of course, the electricity went off. Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known. Jesus just sighed. The electricity finally flickered back on, and each of them restarted computers. Satan started searching frantically screaming, "It's gone! It's all gone! I lost everything when the power went out!" Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all his files from the past 2 hours. Satan observed this and became even more irate. "Wait! He cheated! How did he do it?" God shrugged and said, "Jesus saves!" ---------------- The above is NOT a theological item, it's a pun intended to get you to hit CTRL S now and then. __________________________________________________

Daily tip from Opening Clams Never open clams with a paring knife or other sharp instrument. You can cut yourself badly. It's best to use a flat knife made for opening clams or some flat kitchen knifes may do the trick. Use a thick towel, glove or pot holder to protect the hand that is holding the clam. Hold the flat knife in your other hand, pull the shell opening towards knife until it penetrates between the shells, then stop. Simply rotate the knife to pry open the shell. Fresh clams open easier when they are cold. Tip provided by ____________________________________________________

The 44-year-old Goss was previously employed as an administrative assistant to a judge in Garland County, Arkansas. That is, until authorities accused her of fraudulently charging $200,000 to a Garland County credit card. Goss used the card to purchase a diamond bracelet, tickets to Arkansas Razorbacks football games, sequined throw pillows and pet insurance, according to The Associated Press. Goss was set to stand trial Tuesday but opted to plead guilty at a pretrial hearing Monday to six felony counts of fraudulent use of the county’s credit card, according to the Hot Springs Sentinel Record. She will be sentenced on Nov. 22. Arkansas State Police started investigating Goss in July, after an auditor noticed discrepancies on a Garland County credit card in May. An audit found that Goss, an administrative assistant to Garland County Judge Rick Davis, had used the county credit card for years for personal purchases and to pay bills. She was fired by the judge after the audit, according to Goss is potentially facing between three and 20 years for each count. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Darlene Re: CrapCleaner Dear Webby, I downloaded Crap Cleaner from your sidebar and love it.

One day, Doug was playing ball in the house, which was strictly against the rules, and he accidentally broke a vase in the living room. "Oh, no, my mom's gonna kill me!", he thought desperately. He frantically tried to fix it, any way he could. But tape, glue, even Superglue wouldn't hold all the shards together. He finally left the pieces in a pile on the table, and went to hide in his room. Soon, his mother came home, and he heard her calling him. "Doug, do you know who broke my vase? It's in here all in pieces!" Doug tried to drum up his courage, but at the last minute, he found himself answering, "No, Mom, I don't know." He cringed, waiting for her answer. "That's funny," she said, appearing at his door. "I wanted to thank whoever it was. I've never liked that ugly thing, and if it had not been a gift from your daddy's mom, I would have broken it myself years ago!"

Daily tip from Congratulations Casserole By melissa [293 Posts, 429 Comments Why the silly name? I put this together with leftovers and pantry items for dinner. My 6 year old who loves cooking and recipes asked me if I followed a new recipe or I made this one up. When I told her it was my own, she quickly responded;"Congratulations, it's very good!" I just thought that was too cute.:) That being said, it passed the test with 4 kids. Not a single complaint, I have to admit it is really good, comfort food. The best part about it, I used leftover ground beef and potatoes that would have been tossed otherwise. I find it very helpful personally to keep some basic pantry staples on hand for those times when you want to whip up something quick. Total Time: About 10 minutes Yield: Around 8-10 Ingredients: 3 1/3 cup ground beef 1 envelope taco or burrito seasoning 3 15 oz. cans drained mixed vegetables 3 10.5 oz cans cream of mushroom soup 3 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese 4 1/4 cup mashed potatoes dash of basil My ground beef was originally prepared with an envelope of taco seasoning added. I would suggest adding this to yours as it gives it great flavor! I imagine this would also turn out quite tasty with leftover chicken if that is what you happen to have. Just use up those leftovers, it's like getting a free meal! :) *You could easily half this recipe for a smaller casserole* Steps: In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, taco or burrito seasoning, mixed vegetables and mushroom soups. Spread into a 13 by 9 inch casserole dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Spread potatoes over all, sprinkle with dried basil. It tastes good and makes it look nicer. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and enjoy! Tip provided by ____________________________________________________

"Yes, I'm afraid that I did twice during the time we were married," replied the second man. St. Peter told him that he would receive a compact car to drive in heaven. The third man was asked the same question and he replied, "No I am happy to report that I was happily married and never cheated on my wife!" St. Peter congratulated him and gave him a luxury car to drive in heaven. One day the first two men saw the man in the luxury car crying at a stop light and asked him why he was crying.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Victor Walter Apeler, 46 Blake Lee Waller, 42, Jacksonville, Florida Florida men caught hauling away stolen power pole atop Kia Perhaps the alleged thieves thought no one would believe that the massive item on top of their van was stolen. Needless to say, their plans to steal a 30-foot power pole didn't go as planned. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office (JSO) in Florida arrested two men on Wednesday for trying to steal the essential item. Apparently, a resident helped spot the oddity and called the police. In the photo posted by JSO, it looks as if the men tried tying the pole to the top of their vehicle - not obvious at all. The Florida Times-Union reported that the pole apparently came from a bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway. In fact, an officer heading to the scene spotted the hole from which the large metal item was stolen. One of the men who had been placed under arrest said the pole was lying in the road and he was just trying to move it out of the way. However, he had no answer for police when they asked why he didn't just roll it to the side. The suspects have since been identified as 42-year-old Blake Lee Waller and 46-year-old Victor Walter Apeler. And further investigation may have revealed their true goal for the power pole. The newspaper reported that Apeler had completed 73 pawn transactions so far in the year - all but one of them dealing in scrap metal. The pole itself has an estimated value of $2,500. Both men now face charges of grand theft. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Daniel Re: Sort, delete files Dear Webby, is there a way to view files/folders and delete the one's you don't want? thanks, daniel Dear Daniel Right-click on START select EXPLORE Once you are in there, click on TOOLS FOLDER OPTIONS In TASKS, select Windows Classic Folders.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Katie Quackenbush, 26, Nashville, Tennessee Porsche Driver Shot Homeless Man in Nashville, who had asked her to move her car. A wanna-be country singer from Texas has been charged with the attempted murder of a homeless Tennessee man who asked her to move her Porsche. Police say 26-year-old Katie Quackenbush shot Gerald Melton, 54, after he complained about loud music and exhaust fumes from the Porsche SUV where she was sitting with a friend while he was trying to sleep on a sidewalk near Nashville's Music Row around 3am on Aug. 26, the AP reports. Police say that after a loud argument, Quackenbush got out of her vehicle with a gun and shot Melton twice in the abdomen before leaving the scene hurriedly without calling authorities. Melton is still in a Nashville hospital with critical injuries. Quackenbush's father, an attorney in Amarillo, of course gives a totally different version of events. Jesse Quackenbush says after Melton screamed threats in the vehicle's window and walked away, his daughter grabbed her gun to escort her friend back to her vehicle. He says when Melton walked toward her again, she closed her eyes and fired two "warning shots" before leaving, unaware she had injured the man. "She didn't try and kill this guy," he says. "She had no intention of killing him. She didn't know that she hit him." WSMV reports that Quackenbush, who was released on $25,000 bond after being charged Monday night, was arrested for assault in Texas in 2013 and again in December last year. She was dark haired at that time. Quackenbush has a 5 year old son. Quackenbush has posted a screechy "song" on YouTube in 2015, but is not known for having actually sold any music. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Linda Re: AVG warning Dear Webby, Yesterday's advice about free AVG has to be taken with a big grain of salt!

Daily tip from Japanese Potato Salad By attosa [411 Posts, 2,147 Comments] Total Time: 1 hour Yield: 8 servings Link: Easy way to peel potatoes Ingredients: 2 lb golden potatoes 1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced 1/2 carrot, peeled and thinly sliced 1/3 red onion, thinly sliced 2 green onions, white and light green parts only, sliced salt for boiling and seasoning pepper to taste 1/2 cup mayonnaise 1 Tbsp rice vinegar 2 tsp spicy mustard 1 Tbsp sugar Steps: To make potato peeling easier, cut a line around each potato, making sure not to cut deeper than the skin. Put the potatoes in a pot of cold, salted water so the water is covering the top of the potatoes. Bring to a simmer and cook until a fork poked into them goes in without resistance, about 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes in a colander. To blanch the carrots, drop in a pot of boiling water for about two minutes. Don't over boil, they should still have a slight crunch. Shock in a bowl of very cold water to stop the cooking process, then drain. Sprinkle cucumber slices lightly with sea salt, mix with your hands making sure the salt coats them evenly. Set aside for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, rinse off cucumbers and gently squeeze with paper towels to get all of the moisture out. This is a very important step and will prevent soggy potato salad. To easily remove skins from potatoes, pinch each end and the skins will come right off. In a bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Add peeled potatoes to dressing and gently smash, making sure you leave some small potato chunks. Add the carrots, cucumber, red onion and green onion. Mix well. Serve straight away as slightly warm or refrigerate for an hour and serve cold. Enjoy! Yes, I know, your version is different. This is Attosa's version. Try it, you might like it. Have FUN!

____________________________________________________ A large dog walks into a butcher's shop with a purse in its mouth. He puts the purse down and sits in front of the meat case. "What is it, boy?" the butcher asks, joking around with his customers. "Want to buy some meat?" "Woof!" barks the dog. "Hmm," says the butcher. "What kind? Liver, bacon, steak--" "Woof!" interrupts the dog. "And how much steak? Half a kilo, one kilo--" "Woof!" says the dog. The amazed butcher wraps up the meat and finds the money in the dog's purse. As the dog leaves, the butcher decides to follow. The dog enters an apartment house, climbs to the third floor, and begins to scratch on the door. With that, the door swings open and an angry man starts shouting at the dog. "Stop!" yells the butcher. "What are you doing? That's the most clever animal I've ever seen!" "Clever?" counters the man. "This is the third time this month he's forgotten his keys!" ___________________________________________________

After a few minutes, the man turned to the priest and asked. "Say,Father, what causes arthritis?" The priest replied, "My Son, it's caused by loose living; being with cheap, wicked women; too much alcohol; contempt for your fellow man; sleeping around with prostitutes; and lack of bathing." The drunk muttered in response, "Well, I'll be darned," then returned to his paper. The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologized. "I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?" The drunk answered, "I don't have it, Father. I was just reading here that the Pope does."

I'm not too sharp on computer lingo, explain friends list and white list. Thanks Lee Dear Lee All spam control programs and most email programs have a list of authorized addresses. Some call it address book, some call it White-List, some call it Friends-List. When an address is in that list, then mail from that address is not checked with the regular junk-mail filters. Dedicated programs like MailWasher let you make very sophisticated filters quite easily using the built in filter maker, and even arrange the filters by seniority. Keep in mind, once a piece of mail has been judged good or bad, it won't be judged again by filters further down the list. Don't sort them alphabetically, but by their priority. For example, move a filter that judges all mail from your daughter as good, up to the top, and a filter, that judges all mail that has the name of a certain pill, way down. That way, even if she jokes about that pill, it will be OK, since her mail has already been judged as good. As long as you keep seniority or priority in mind, filters are really easy and predictable. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Ross for this story and picture: A sweet little old lady from Newfoundland had worked in and around her family dairy farm since she was old enough to walk, with endless hours of hard work and little compensation. When canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery stores in around the 1940's, she read an advertisement offering $5,000 for the best slogan. The producers wanted a rhyme beginning with "Carnation Milk is best of all....” She thought to herself, I know all about milk & dairy farms... I can do this! She sent in her entry & about a week later, a black limo drove up in front of her house. A man got out & said "Carnation LOVED your entry so much, we are here to award you $1000, even though we will not be able to use it." Her entry is here:

Daily tip from Berry Lime Sorbet By Holly805 [13 Posts, 10 Comments] This sorbet is a sweet, slightly tart treat, that is perfect for the end of summer. It is non-fat and also has reduced sugar content. A honey syrup with whole fruit enhances the consistency and adds natural sweetness. No ice cream maker needed! Perfect for someone looking for a healthier alternative to store bought ice cream or sorbet. Prep Time: 20 min Total Time: Chill overnight Yield: 6-8 1/2 cup servings Source: Trial and error. :) Ingredients: 1/4 cup lime juice 1/3-1/2 cup honey 24 oz frozen mixed berries (1/2 of a 3 pound bag) 2 small frozen bananas, sliced 2 tsp lime zest 2-3 Tbsp almond milk (optional) Steps: Zest and juice 3 to 4 limes. Measure the honey and add with lime juice to a small saucepan over medium low heat. Bring to a low bubble and simmer for two minutes, whisking occasionally. This makes a simple syrup, the necessary element for a smooth texture. Set out the frozen fruit to soften while the syrup simmers. Cool the syrup slightly. Add 1/2 the berries and the banana slices to the blender (the bananas enhance the consistency and cannot be tasted in the finished sorbet). Pour in the steaming syrup over the fruit. The heat from the syrup will soften the fruit enough for blending. Add the lime zest and puree on high, mixing as needed. When the mixture is smooth, stir in the remaining berries. Puree, adding 2-3 Tbsp. almond milk if additional liquid is needed to blend the fruit. Pour the mixture into a freezer safe storage container and freeze for two hours. Next, transfer the partially frozen mixture to a bowl. Beat until the overall consistency is smooth. Freeze for another two hours and repeat this process. The mixture should be more thick, like soft served ice cream. This mimics the churning process of an ice cream maker, which prevents large ice crystals from forming and ruining the scoop-able consistency. Freeze the sorbet for an additional 3-4 hours or overnight. Prior to serving, set the sorbet out to soften for about three minutes. It should scoop easily into nice, compact servings.

And you thought 6th grade band was boring
____________________________________________________ From Candy My engineer husband is meticulous but mild-mannered. While our new house was being built, he would leave notes for the workmen, politely calling their attention to mistakes or oversights. Two weeks before we were to move in, the floors still were not finished, the bathrooms not tiled, nor were necessary fixtures installed. I was sure that the work would never be completed in time. However, on moving day, we found that the house was ready to receive us. Curious as to how this miracle had been accomplished, I went and checked where my husband always left his notes for the workmen. Posted prominently on the living room wall was my husband's last note: "after September 10, all work will be supervised by my wife and 5 children." ___________________________________________________
An unusual hotel in a nature reserve.
___________________________________________________ A nun, badly needing to use the restroom, walked into a local Hooters. The place was hopping with music and loud conversation and every once in a while the lights would turn off. Each time the lights would go out, the place would erupt into cheers. However, when the revelers saw the nun, the room went dead silent. She walked up to the bartender and asked, "May I please use the restroom?" The bartender replied, "OK, but I should warn you that there is a statue of a naked man in there wearing only a fig leaf." "Well, in that case I'll just look the other way," said the nun. So, the bartender showed the nun to the back of the restaurant, and she proceeded to the restroom. After a few minutes, she came back out, and the whole place stopped just long enough to give the nun a loud round of applause. She went to the bartender and said, "Sir, I don't understand. Why did they applaud for me just because I went to the restroom?" "Well, now they know you're one of us," said the bartender. "Would you like a drink?" "But, I still don't understand," said the puzzled nun. "You see," laughed the bartender, "every time the fig leaf on the statue is lifted up, the lights go out. Now, how about that drink?"

____________________________________________________ From Donna Enjoy your newsletter everyday and always seem to get a chuckle. There you were today picking on us Southerners for calling all soft drinks a Coke...which by the way is almost always true. Made me think of an incident one year while on vacation in Hawaii. We stopped at a Burger King for a quick lunch and I ordered a mustard whopper and the guy behind the counter said "you must be from Texas". Seems Texans were the only ones who ordered them that way. Donna From Dennis Dear Webby I got a big kick out of the little addition you tacked on to the story about ordering sodas at the movies. I spent my college years in Tennessee and heard that conversation many times. In my area, you had to first ask for a cold drink (that's pronounced "cole drank"). If you didn't specify "coke", you were handed whatever brand of beer happened to be in the fridge (which would have the catch-all tag of "Bud"). Or, you could specify "coke" and then further qualify your choice. The other language barrier issue that most amused/irritated me had to do with hats. I'm from Upstate New York, so if someone mentioned a toboggan, I would think of a sled made of laminated wood, ten or twelve feet long with a curved-up end. In Tennessee, a toboggan is the hat you wear while riding a sled made of laminated wood, ten or twelve feet long with a curved-up end. Thanks for the chuckle on the walk own Memory Lane Dennis From Susan Webby, Thanks for doing a great job.

"Because it's been laying outside, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty and probably has germs" I replied. At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Wow! How do you know all this stuff?" "Uh", ... I was thinking quickly, "All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mommy." We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information. "OH...I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the test you have to be the daddy."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Arron Hughes North Wales Britain DAM STUPID stag-do Brit arrested after swimming across Hoover dam reservoir near the dam Any idiot knows that swimming on the dam side of the floats, that catch drift wood, kayaks, air mattresses and capsized boats, is highly illegal and will likely get you shot at. Since September 11, 2001, they are VERY concerned about possible terrorist attacks, and they even built that fantastic Multi Billion dollar bridge to detour traffic away from the dam. Arron Hughes, while on a drinking tour with his friends, ignored the signs and got into the water on the dam side of the floats, and swam across the reservoir. Since the water is drawn via those cute towers, not via a hole in the bottom of the dam, there is no current near the dam. The idea is that silt and gravel will settle there and reinforce the dam. Eventually the water depth will be twelve to twenty feet, not 700, and a breach would not be catastrophic. As is, if that dam is breached, it would cause a hundred foot high killer tsunami for a hundred miles, and flooding all the way to the coast. So quite naturally, since 9/11/2001 they are VERY concerned about security at the dam. After this idiot took half an hour to swim across, while in the cross-hairs of a whole bunch of snipers, he promptly got arrested and hauled in for interrogation. They realized he was just a drunk tourist and fined him $330. I would imagine that next time he will obey the signs and swim upstream of the driftwood and kayak catcher floats like everybody else. Once he realizes that he was "designated target" for half an hour, and that if one of the snipers got an itchy finger, all of them would shoot, he will probably vow to never swim near a dam again. He was apparently 50 - 100 meters from the dam, which just barely saved him from getting perforated. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Richi Re: Which antivirus? Dear Webby, i have a ? about antivirus, i see that you reccommend mc affee , isnt maleware bytes good enough for the computer? whats the difference? tyvm for all the time and help Dear Richi Yes, if you have Malwarebytes, that is all you need. However, some people are hooked on McAfee or want to save a few dollars. Because McAfee is getting squeezed out by Malwarebytes, they are getting desperate and lowering their prices. Personally, I have used McAfee since the mid 80's, but last Christmas got totally fed up with their idiot Taliban support, after my machine died and I had to activate an old Windows 7 PRO machine. McAfee would not work on that, and their totally useless Taliban just pissed me off. The only usable advice I got from them was to try Malwarebytes. I did, and it was like a Chinook in winter! A week later I put ads for Malwarebytes onto my site. It is entirely up to you what you are going to use. However, you definitely don't need both. Just select one and get used to that one. Have FUN!

The Test: Q: What do you put in a toaster? * * * * A: The answer is bread. If you said "toast," then give up now and go do something else before you hurt yourself. If you said "bread", go to the next question. *** Q: Say "silk" five times. Now, spell "silk." What do cows drink? * * * * A: Cows drink water. If you said "milk", please do not attempt the next question. Your brain is obviously over- stressed and may even overheat. It may be that you need to content yourself with reading something more appropriate such as "Children's World." If you said "water", then proceed to the next question. *** Q: If a red house is made with red bricks, a blue house is made with blue bricks, a pink house is made with pink bricks, a black house is made with black bricks, what is a greenhouse made with? * * * * A: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said "green bricks," what the heck are you still doing here reading these questions? If you said "glass", then go on to the next question. *** Q: Twenty years ago, a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany. If you will recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany and East Germany. Anyway, during the flight, TWO of the engines fail. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on a crash landing. Unfortunately, the engine fails before he has time and the plane crashes smack in the middle of "no-man's-land" between East Germany and West Germany. Where would you bury the survivors - East Germany or West Germany or in "no-man's-land?" * * * * A: You don't, of course, bury the survivors. If you said ANYTHING else, you are a real dunce and you must NEVER try to rescue anyone from a plane crash. Your efforts would not be appreciated... If you said, "Don't bury the survivors" then proceed to the next question. *** Q: If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60th of a degree every minute, then how many degrees will the hour hand move in one hour? * * * * A: One degree. If you said "360 degrees" or anything else other than "one degree", you are to be congratulated on getting this far, but you are obviously out of your league. Turn your pencil in and exit the room. Everyone else proceed to the final question. *** Q: Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales. In London, 17 people get on the bus. In Reading, six people get off the bus and nine people get on. In Swindon, two people get off and four get on. In Cardiff, 11 people get off and 16 people get on. In Swansea, three people get off and five people get on. In Carmathen, six people get off and three get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven. Now, what was the name of the bus driver? * * * * A: Ask your mom what your name is!

____________________________________________________ >From Kara I've always ordered beverages one simple way: "A Coke, please." Lately, though, this hasn't seemed to work. Waitresses now often respond, "I'm sorry, we don't have Coke. We have Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, Mr. Pibb." Tired of listening to the long list of soft drinks, I thought I'd make life easier. So one day I simply asked the snack bar clerk at a movie theater for a "dark, carbonated beverage." The young man behind the counter chuckled and asked, "Ma'am, would you like a cylindrical plastic sucking device with that?" I told him I would prefer a tubular one. It's easy in the South. There everything is a "Coke". You hear conversations like this: "... and a Coke." "Wha kine?" "7-Up" ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Sandie for this confession: One year my mom went to my sister's house for a traditional feast. Knowing how gullible my sister is, my mom decided to play a trick. She told my sister that she needed something from the store. When my sister left, my mom took the turkey out of the oven, removed the stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen, and inserted it into the turkey, and re-stuffed the turkey. She then placed the birds back in the oven. When it was time for dinner, my sister pulled the turkey out of the oven and proceeded to remove the stuffing. When her serving spoon hit something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird. With a look of total shock on her face, my mother exclaimed, "Patricia, you've cooked a pregnant bird!" At the reality of this horrifying news, my sister started to cry. It took the family two hours to convince her that turkeys lay eggs! ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Calvin Davis, 47, Newark, Delaware Day care workers stop creep from running off with 2 tots. Cops tenderize and arrest him. Day care workers in Delaware stopped a man from walking off with two babies after the stranger shoved his way into the facility and grabbed the infants, state police said Friday. The man rang the front doorbell at Happy Kids Academy in Newark and pushed a worker to get into the facility, police spokesman Sgt. Richard Bratz said. The man went to the infant room, punched another worker in the face, and picked up two infants, putting one under each arm. When the man tried to leave with the babies, one of the workers stood in front of the door to stop him, police said. The other worker went behind the man and grabbed one baby. The first worker then caught the second baby as the child began slipping from the suspect’s arm. The suspect ran from the day care, punching a car in the parking lot, Bratz said. State and county police officers saw the man and ordered him to stop walking and show his hands, police said. The man refused to obey the officers’ orders, Bratz said, and one officer shot him with a Taser. The man continued to approach the officer, police said, and the officer tripped on a curb and fell backward. The officer again deployed the Taser, authorities said, but the man continued to approach the officer. The officer then hit Davis for a while with a baton, and was able to eventually take him into custody, Bratz said. Calvin Davis, 47, of Newark was taken to a hospital for evaluation. When he is released, Bratz said, Davis will be charged with kidnapping, assault and various other offenses. The mug shot seems to be from previous arrests. The injured officer was taken to a hospital. One of the two babies sustained a minor cut. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Chris Re: Mailing photoshop pictures Dear Webby, Good morning and I hope this finds you and yours well.

Finally she went to the model's door and just kept ringing the bell. When the model answered, the wife fumed, "I would like to know why it is my husband takes so long to get something over here."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD and a Darwin Award has been earned by De'Carlo Jackson, 24, Cleveland, Ohio Cleveland armed robber shot, killed by Taco Bell employees Three employees at a Cleveland Taco Bell shot and killed a suspect during an attempted robbery, according to police. Officers responded to the restaurant on W. 117th street at 2:45 a.m. Wednesday morning for a report of a robbery with shots fired. When police arrived, they found a suspect with multiple gunshot wounds. Officers administered first aid until EMS arrived. The suspect later died at MetroHealth Medical Center. The medical examiner later identified the suspect as 24-year-old Cleveland resident De'Carlo Jackson. Another man, believed to be Jackson's accomplice, had already taken off by the time officers arrived. Police say a preliminary investigation indicates that three Taco Bell employees, all armed, shot at the two suspects after they came into the restaurant wearing masks and ordered the employees to the ground at gunpoint. Since 2012, Jackson had been convicted three times for "attempted" drug trafficking (Selling to a narc). _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Robert Re: gmail to POP Dear Webby, I use gmail mainly to reserve my address for when I move and lose my current address. In the meantime, I want to be able to download the mail from gmail to my regular POP email program (Eudora). Can that be done? Robert Dear Robert I have had a lot of similar questions lately. Yes, sure it can be done. Just go into your gmail settings and set it to ALLOW POP and to forward to your regular POP email address. That's all there is to it, IF you have an ISP or domain based POP address. Takes about 5 seconds to do. For those who don't have an ISP or domain based POP address, go into the gmail settings, set it to ALLOW POP. Then go into Eudora or Thunderbird or whatever you use, and make a new email account. For the incoming POP server name use For the outgoing SMTP server name use For the user name and password use your gmail log in. After that, your email program will check your gmail as if it was a standard POP email account. Have FUN! DearWebby

>From Ed I was on vacation, playing the slot machines. It was my first time in a casino, and I wasn't sure how the machines operated. "Excuse me." I said to a casino employee. "How does this work?"

Daily tip from Succulent Plants Make Wonderful Gifts By 15mhhm15 [242 Posts, 702 Comments] Did you know it is very easy to propagate succulents? If you have succulents in your yard, or at your family or friend's home, pull off some leaves, or a leaf with your finger or cut carefully and get the entire leaf than allow the leaves to dry for a few days! When the end (where you pulled the leaf/leaves) has hardened then it is ready to fill a small container with some soil and lay your leaf/leaves on top. Water slowly until you see roots from the leaves sprout. Once the leaves sprout (probably a few weeks) you could separate each leaf into its own container. Below are succulent cuttings from family and all I did was reuse an old dish and put soil to arrange all the succulents together. It looks beautiful and perfect to give as a gift or as a center piece in your home! Little maintenance (water wise) is required for these and it looks beautiful! Don't over-water them! Like cacti, they thrive on dedicated neglect. It is not extra water, that makes them grow, but deeper dirt and especially wind. Even if you can't see them move in the wind, it is the invisible, tiny movements when the wind massages them, that pump up nutrients for them. By the way, some succulents produce gorgeous flowers. Have FUN! DerWebby ____________________________________________________

"I know a great one in the city, but he is very expensive. Five hundred dollars for the first visit, and one hundred dollars for each one after that." The woman went to the doctor's office and, trying to save a little money, cheerily announced. "I'm back!" Not fooled for a second, the doctor took her $100, quickly examined her and said, "Very good, just continue the treatment I prescribed on your last visit." ___________________________________________________

They both were very faithful,loving wives... however, they had gotten a bit over enthusiastic on Bacardi Breezers. Incredibly drunk and walking home, they needed to pee, so they stopped in a cemetery. One had nothing to wipe with so she decided to take off her panties and use them. Her friend, however, was wearing expensive panties and didn't want to ruin them... luckily she had squatted next to a grave that had a fresh wreath with a ribbon on she proceeded to wipe with that. After the girls completed their "business" they continued toward home. The following day, one of the women's husband was concerned that his normally sweet and innocent wife was still in bed and hung over. He phoned the other husband, and said "These girls nights out have got to stop! I'm starting to suspect the worst! My wife came home with no panties!"... "That's nothing!" said the other husband, "mine came back with a card stuck to her butt that read: "FROM ALL OF US AT THE FIRE STATION...

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Toscha Fay Sponsler, 33, Pollok, Texas Texas woman slipped handcuffs, took police SUV on 100-MPH chase Texas police published video Tuesday showing a shoplifting suspect slipping out of her handcuffs, stealing a police SUV and leading officers on a breathtaking high-speed chase. The woman, identified as Toscha Fay Sponsler, 33, of Pollok, Texas, ran away from Lufkin police officers responding to a call of a possible shoplifter at a beauty supply store on Saturday. After the officers ran her down on foot, Sponsler was cuffed behind her back and buckled into a seatbelt in the back of a patrol SUV, police said. Video from the SUV's internal camera records Sponsler deftly wriggling out her handcuffs, keeping a wary eye out and playing possum whenever someone in uniform passes by the window. With a build like an 8 year old boy she easiy clambers through the sliding partition and over into the front seat, then speeds off, with officers vainly trying to run after her on foot. Video from the unit's dash camera records Sponsler speeding and veering across lanes, at one point swerving to avoid a spike strip that a roadside officer tosses into the street. After what police said was a 23-minute pursuit at speeds hitting 100 mph, officers maneuver Sponsler into making a hard turn into a residential yard more than 20 miles away in the town of Zavalla, where she loses control of the SUV and finally comes to a stop. Officers break through the driver's-side window and toss Sponsler on the ground, where they cuff her again, a bit toghter this time. Sponsler remained in the Angelina County Jail on $18,000 bond on Tuesday night, charged with five felony counts of escape with the threat of a deadly weapon, aggravated assault, unauthorized use of a vehicle, possession of a controlled substance and evading arrest, according to jail records. The deadly weapon was a police shotgun mechanically locked to the SUV, which pursuing officers said they saw Sponsler reach for repeatedly. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Karen Re: How safe is Skype Dear Webby, My daughter wants me to install Skype in my computer at home and in the office, to save on phone bills. How safe is that? Karen Dear Karen Skype is perfectly safe. It is so heavily encrypted, that even if somebody figured a way to intercept it, they could not extract any information. Also, it does not open any security holes like many other programs do. Even though it is nowhere near as good as before Microsoft bought it for $8.5 Billion to make sure Google did not get it, Skype is really easy on computer's resources. There is no need to shut it down now and then to release hogged memory. It's not just for talking and video chatting for free over the net. It includes a text chat module for typing back and forth and sending pictures, movies, music, links, etc. You can even send SMS messages to cell phones. Voice quality is still very good, often better than over a phone. We have used Skype for tech support for about 18 years now, and have never had a problem with it. I normally just use text chat, because it allows people to copy and paste. My father is the only exception. I video chat 5 - 10 minutes with him every day, noon my time, 8 PM his time in Austria. Why not? It is free, and at his age typing is a nuisance. Have FUN! DearWebby

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jasbir, 67, Bhupinder, 61, Devbir Kalsi, 33, Hillsborogh, Florida Parents flew from India to Florida to help their son beat up his wife A husband and wife are accused of flying from India to Florida to help “discipline” their son’s wife, who was found badly beaten and allegedly held against her will at a Tampa Bay area home on Saturday, law enforcement authorities said. Jasbir Kalsi, 67, and Bhupinder Kalsi, 61, were arrested along with their son, Devbir Kalsi, 33, after the victim’s relatives in India requested a welfare check by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, according to an incident report. A deputy who went to the victim’s Riverview home around 6:30 a.m. on Saturday said people inside ignored his efforts to get them to open the front door. He forced his way inside when he heard Devbir’s 33-year-old wife screaming for someone to save her and her child. “The deputy forced the door open and was immediately confronted by the victim’s husband Devbir Kalsi who attempted to push the door closed,” according to the incident report. The deputy said he was arresting the husband when he was confronted by the man’s father and mother. As the officer dealt with the parents, additional deputies arrived. The young wife was described as “badly beaten and bruised over her entire body.” (HuffPost is not naming her because she is a suspected victim of domestic violence.) Based on her bruises, the woman is believed to have been physically assaulted “for an extended period of time,” authorities said. They said the child, a 1-year-old according to the Tampa Bay Times, was unharmed. Devbir Kalsi’s parents flew to Florida from Punjab state, India, to help “counsel and discipline” his wife after hearing that she was being “disobedient,” authorities alleged. At one point, the husband and his parents allegedly threatened his wife with a knife to her throat. They also allegedly took her phone away so she couldn’t call 911. Devbir, Jasbir and Bhupinder Kalsi were booked into the Hillsborough County Jail and held without bond, the Tampa Bay Times reported. Devbir is facing charges of felony battery, false imprisonment, child abuse and denying access to 911. His father is facing charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment, child abuse and denying access to 911. His mother is looking at charges of battery, domestic violence and failure to report child abuse. The accused family members, who are foreign nationals, could be deported back to India, Fox 13 reported. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ginger Re: Desktop.ini Dear Webby, This "desktop.ini icon" has been showing up on my desktop every time I sign onto my computer. I ignored it for weeks and weeks but it's getting on my nerves now! Can you tell me how to keep it from showing up every day?

Daily tip from Instant Wonton Noodles By 15mhhm15 [242 Posts, 700 Comments] While grocery shopping at Costco, these Chicken & Cilantro Mini Wontons were being demonstrated. I love the idea of how quick and versatile these wontons are for frozen food, pretty nutritious, and inexpensive. This 3 lb bag has about 150 pieces for $9.69. There was a promotion going on so it was $3.50 off, coming out to be $6.19. Prep Time: 2 minutes Cook Time: 8 minutes Total Time: 10 minutes Yield: 2 people Ingredients: 25 wontons 1/2 water 2 packages ramen noodles 2 stems cilantro 2 stems green onions 4 pieces ham 4 Tbsp hoisin sauce Steps: Dice green onions and cilantro. In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add wontons and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove wontons and set aside. Add ramen seasoning. I used garlic and pepper kind of ramen. Sprinkle some green onions in. Add the ramen noodles and cook for 3-4 minutes Optional: we had left over ham and a great way to use up ham is in soup. For finishing touches, add the wontons back into soup and the remaining green onions and add cilantro. Stir in some hoisin sauce for flavor and ready to enjoy! ____________________________________________________

Some interesting stats:
Source: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
In 2017 there were 211,264 DACA applications by March 31.
Application for renewal, which requires that the applicant
have no crimina record and is either working or studying,
were only 35,586 (16%)

That means 175,687 (83%) either had acquired a criminal
record, were busy trying to get free room and board in some
jail, or were busy demonstrating and looting with one of
the many Hilarite groups and had no time to work or study.

You definitely can't blame that dismal 16% record on Trump.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Brittany Sharp, 25, Fort Myers, Florida Florida woman stops drunk driver the hard way Three women in Florida put themselves in harm’s way for the sake of others when they made an alleged DUI driver crash into their vehicle. Suzzette Williams, Angelina Powell and an unidentified woman took matters into their own hands after spotting a motorist — who police later identified as 25-year-old Brittany Sharp — driving erratically near North Fort Myers on Sunday afternoon, per multiple outlets. Williams, who was driving a Nissan Sentra, trailed Sharp’s white Chevrolet Cavalier as Sharp allegedly weaved between lanes, hit curbs and then joined Interstate 75, per WBBH. One of Williams’ passengers remained in telephone contact with the police, while the other broadcast the pursuit over Facebook Live. Williams then overtook Sharp, pulled her own vehicle in front of the Chevrolet and slammed on the brakes. It forced Sharp to rear-end Williams’ car, but brought her to a complete stop. Considering how many cops you normally see on the roads in Fort Myers, and how fast they travel, it must have been their lunch time. Usually they are very fast. Florida Highway troopers eventually arrived on the scene and took Sharp, who had minor injuries, for treatment at Fort Myers’ Lee Memorial Hospital. Sharp, from Cape Coral, was charged with driving under the influence, driving with a suspended license and careless driving. She remains in custody without bond at Lee County Jail, per The News-Press, and is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 18. Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Greg Bueno praised the women for calling 911, but didn’t recommend that others follow their example in stopping a driver “like this on their own.” _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Leon Re: Partitioning a Hard Drive Dear Webby, I recently purchased a new computer with a large ( 1 TB) hard drive. I remember you recommending partitioning hard drives. Everything I read about partitioning states you have to format the drives after partitioning. Does that mean all drives or just the new ones. Will I have to reload what is now on the C drive or will it not be affected? Thanks, I really enjoy your humor letter, Leon Dear Leon Yes, a new partition is like a new drive stuffed into the machine, and has to be partitioned. That is not a big deal, since it doesn't have anything on it yet. The partitioning software has a formatting option for that. It won't mess with the C: drive, just add additional drives. The D: letter is normally reserved for the cD/Dvd, all other letters are still available. No, you won't have to reload anything. It just squishes what you got onto a corner of the C: drive. Once the creation and formatting of the new drives is complete, you can drag all the Prayers to the P: drive and all the Sermons to the S: drive. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Ghost Light By Rachel's Mom [277 Posts, 86 Comments] This holiday craft was created by recycling a terra cotta tray and frosted light globe. It would make a great Halloween centerpiece! By Rachel's Mom [277 Posts, 86 Comments] Guide Making a Ghost Light This holiday craft was created by recycling a terra cotta tray and frosted light globe. It would make a great Halloween centerpiece! Approximate Time: about 25 minutes Supplies: 8 inch terra cotta tray frosted light globe black acrylic paint paint brush pencil votive candle Instructions: Paint the terra cotta tray using black acrylic paint and set aside to dry. Use a pencil to draw eyes and mouth onto the globe to resemble a ghost. Fill in these areas with black acrylic paint. Place a votive candle or battery-powered candle in center of tray, and place globe on top. I would highly recommend to use a $1 solar light from the Dollar Store. Some kid is bound to grab the globe, and start a big howl and toss the globe, if the globe is heated by a candle. You can even get solar lights, that change color. If you can't afford a solar light, glue sugar cube size pebbles at the bottom of the globe to ensure plenty of air flow to cool the globe. Flour and water glue is plenty good enough. If you use a solar light, you can fake the globe with wax paper and get right creative! When a kid smashes it, you got a brand new ghost! Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Shelby Wagner, 25, Crestview, Florida Florida driver more than 4 times over the limit A Crestview woman with a blood-alcohol level over four times the legal limit was charged with driving under the influence after several people who noticed her reckless driving called the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office. Shelby Wagner, 25, was pulled over as she was driving on State Road 293 near Niceville about 7 a.m. Thursday with a blood-alcohol level of 0.334, according to her offense report. The deputy noticed the white Chevy Suburban swerving, crossing the center line and even driving down the median. At one point he noticed that the car was pulled over to the side of the road with Wagner slumped over the wheel. When speaking with the deputy, Wagner misstated the road she was driving on, telling him she was on State Road 85. Wagner failed a field sobriety the test after she was unable to recite the alphabet forward, singing up to the letter “P” and then saying “F, G ,H, M, P” before randomly reciting different letters. The deputy also noted a bottle of red wine and a red cup in the car’s middle console that appeared to have red wine in it. Wagner was arrested for a DUI and then taken to the Fort Walton Beach Police Department for a breathalyzer test. Because the samples showed a blood-alcohol level of over 0.30, Wagner was then taken to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center to be medically cleared. .3 and over is often fatal. After she was cleared she was booked. Her vehicle was towed from the scene. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ross F Re: Restore Quick-Launch Dear Webby, Dear Webby Is there any other way of refreshing the Quick Launch, other than restarting?

____________________________________________________ >From Kati A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during this particularly icy fall. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules, so the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day. The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the email. Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack. The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted. The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read: To: My Loving Wife Subject: I've Arrived Date: February 28, 2006 I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was. P.S. Sure is hot down here! ___________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Anthony Black, 32, Deerfield Beach, Florida Deerfield Beach burglary victim arrested after deputies, called by the burglar alarm, find marijuana. Lots of it. A Deerfield Beach homeowner is behind bars after police found about 38 pounds of marijuana while responding to a burglary at his house. Anthony Black went before a judge, Friday, just one day after his home alarm alerted the Broward Sheriff’s Office to check out a disturbance. “Road patrol received a call that there was an alarm activation at a residence,” said BSO Detective Michael Weiner. Someone had broken into Black’s home. According to the police report, Black, 32, arrived to find a burglar jumping his fence. “When road patrol deputies got there, they went to the back of the house after the resident, owner, secured a couple dogs, realized that the back window to one of the doors was smashed in,” said Weiner. Black secured his pit bulls while deputies entered his home, but the burglary soon took a back seat to the officers’ latest discovery. BSO Detective Reginald Cleophat said it was the smell of marijuana that caught his attention first. “As soon as you walked in, it just hit you in the face, to be honest with you. It was all over the place,” said Cleophat. “He knew he was caught red-handed. He knew that he messed up, to be honest with you.” Bags and bags of weed were found all over the house, along with a gun and thousands of dollars. “In the end, it was over 17,000 grams, which equals to about 38 pounds of cannabis. Street worth is about between $100,000 and $101,000 on the streets,” said Cleophat. Black was arrested and taken to jail. “I’m not a bad guy,” Black said to the judge. “He was so focused on the fact that he was a victim of a crime, which was the burglary,” said Cleophat. “It completely escaped his mind that there were narcotics inside of the residence.” Black is being held at the Broward County Jail on a $75,000 bond. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dave Re: Cleaning tracks Dear Webby, Dear Webby I've used windows to automatically keep user IDs, search engine searches, passwords, etc...and now have quite a list.

Consider the mother and her daughter who were shopping in a mall one day when the mother spied an expensive fur coat. She tried it on and stood in front of the mirror admiring the look and stroking the fur. "This year, I think I'll get myself a birthday present," she said. "But mom," her daughter protested, "some helpless, poor creature has to suffer so that you can have this." "Don't worry, honey. Your father won't get the bill for a couple of weeks."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Melissa Natal, 35, Juan Flores, 25, Bryan Martinez, 24, Franklin, New Hampshire Violent home invasion by 3 armed crooks against paralyzed woman with kids. Being arrested is a crappy experience, but that’s not why a woman in New Hampshire asked for toilet paper before authorities snapped her booking photo. Melissa Natal was accused of masterminding a violent home invasion early Friday involving a paralyzed woman and children. Natal, 35, and her alleged accomplices, Juan Flores, 25; and Bryan Martinez, 24; were charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and burglary, according to WMUR-TV. Natal apparently found the police holding cell cold ? so much so that she wrapped herself in toilet paper for warmth, according to the Manchester Union-Leader. That led to a very sheety mug shot. Flores also found the holding cell chilly. He posed for his booking photo with his arms inside his shirt. Martinez didn’t do anything special to ward off the chill in the cooler. Police said the three suspects broke into the Franklin home of Lynn Hollins, who is paralyzed from the chest down, around 3 a.m. They were armed with a baseball bat and a gun, and were looking for money, according to the Concord Monitor. Martinez jumped onto Hollins and tried to duct-tape her mouth shut, authorities said. “He jumped over me, ripped my shirt off and ripped my pants right off and then got on top of me and just said, ‘Do you have any money?’ and tried to take my ring,” Hollins told WMUR-TV. “I wasn’t going to let it go. I was like, ‘No! Get off me!’” Hollins’ roommates heard the commotion and they tried to stop the attackers. One of the roommates was punched “about a dozen times in the back of the head,” according to court documents. Flores pointed a gun at three of Hollins’ four children, according to the Concord Monitor. Martinez grabbed money hidden in the home’s bar. The suspects piled into a vehicle and fled just as officers arrived, according to They were arrested a short time later. The trio were arraigned later Friday. Prosecutors alleged that Natal knew Hollins and persuaded her accomplices to commit the robbery, according to She has been arrested numerous times since 2001, according to jail records. Natal and Martinez were being held on $25,000 bail at the the Merrimack County Jail; Flores was held on $20,000 bail. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sylvie Re: Caps Lock Dear Webby, Dear Webby How can I permanently, once and for all, disable the CAPS LOCK key ?

At the end of the message, the rich man stood up and announced, "Pastor, I will contribute $1,000." Just then, plaster fell from the ceiling and struck the rich man on the shoulder. He promptly stood again and shouted, "Pastor, I will increase my donation to $5,000." Before he could sit back down, plaster fell on him again and he screamed, "Pastor, I will double my last pledge." He sat down and an even larger chunk of plaster fell, this time hitting him on the head. He stood once more and hollered, "Pastor, I will give $20,000!"

___________________________________________________ Thanks to Ross for this confession: My wife left me...I don't understand. After our last child was born, she told me we had to cut back on expenses - I had to give up drinking beer. I was not a big drinker, maybe a 12-pack on weekends. Anyway, I gave it up but I noticed the other day when she came home from grocery shopping the receipt included $75 in makeup. I said, "Wait a minute. I've given up beer, and you haven't given up anything!" She said, "I buy that makeup for you, so I can look pretty for you." I told her, "Well, that's what the beer was for.” Somehow I don't think she'll be back soon.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Brandon Peckinpaugh, 24, Jefferson County, Kentucky Kentucky burglar steals school bus, leads herd of cops on an Interstate chase. There was an unlikely sight on Birmingham area interstates Monday morning as law enforcement officers from multiple agencies chased a stolen school bus. Brandon Peckinpaugh, 24, of Kentucky, was booked into the Jefferson County Jail shortly before 11 a.m. Monday. He is charged with attempting to elude law enforcement, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest. His bond is set at $15,000. In Blount County, authorities Monday afternoon charged him with five felonies: first-degree theft of property, two counts of unlawful breaking and entering of a vehicle, and two counts of theft of second-degree, theft of property. Authorities there said he broke into two vehicles early Monday, and stole a gun from each. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency is expected to seek an attempted murder warrant against him for running into a state trooper vehicle. Peckinpaugh told authorities his friends left him, and he needed a ride. It all began about 1 a.m. when authorities say the bus was stolen from the home of a bus driver in Blount County. Blount County Sheriff's Office Operations Manager Tim Kent said the bus was taken during an early-morning spate of burglaries in the Oscar Bradford Road area. Authorities later received a call from a citizen who was following the stolen school bus near Finley Boulevard in Birmingham. That citizen was told to stop following the bus and law enforcement officers were notified. Jefferson County sheriff's Chief Deputy Randy Christian said they came in contact with the bus at 7:40 a.m. after they were notified by the Blount County Sheriff's Office that a school bus had been stolen from their jurisdiction by a white male suspect. No children were on board the bus at the time. At about 8:01 a.m. deputies came into contact with the stolen bus on I-59 southbound at exit 110 and attempted to stop the bus, Christian said. The driver refused to stop and a pursuit ensued. The driver led law enforcement through the McCalla and the Oxmoor Road areas before heading onto I-459 northbound. The driver hit a State Trooper vehicle and attempted to hit several other law enforcement vehicles involved in the pursuit. The school bus was ultimately stopped on Interstate 459 at Acton Road. Christian said the driver threw a handgun out of the school bus window. He was taken into custody without incident. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Michael Re: Spreadsheet IF formula on Outlook Dear Webby, Since you used "<" and ">" instead of < and > for the inequality symbols in your answer to Lisa, the HTML in your email was invalid, and my Outlook didn’t display anything between those two symbols, so the Excel formula and your explanation were garbled.

>From England A father put his three year old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened to her prayers which she ended by saying: "God bless Mummy, God bless Daddy, God bless Grandma and good-bye Grandpa." The father asked, "Why did you say good-bye grandpa?" The little girl said, "I don't know daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do." The next day grandpa died. The father thought it was a strange coincidence. A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers which went like this: "God bless Mummy, God Bless Daddy and good-bye Grandma." The next day the grandmother died. Oh my gosh, thought the father, this kid is in contact with the other side. Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed the dad heard her say: "God bless Mummy and good-bye Daddy." He practically went into shock. He couldn't sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office. He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch sent in, and watched the clock. He figured if he could get by until midnight he would be okay. He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound. Finally midnight arrived, he breathed a sigh of relief and went home. When he got home his wife said "I've never seen you work so late, what's the matter?" He said "I don't want to talk about it, I've just spent the worst day of my life." She said "You think you had a bad day, you'll never believe what happened to me. This morning the milkman dropped dead right here in the hallway!."

He was out fishing on a lake in a small boat and not having much luck. He noticed a man in another small boat that was close by, open his tackle box and take out a mirror. Being curious the man rowed over and enquired, "What is the mirror for?" "That's my secret way to catch fish," replied the other man. "I Shine the mirror on the top of the water. The fish notice the spot of sun on the water above and they swim up to the surface. Then I just reach down, net them and pull them into the boat." "Wow! Does that really work?" exclaimed the guy from Chicago "You bet it does." was the response. "Would you be interested in selling that mirror? I'll give you $50 for it." offered the big city gent. "Well, okay." said the country guy. After the money was transferred, the city fisherman asked, "By the way, how many did you catch this week?" The country local, grinned and said, "You're the sixth." ___________________________________________________

He said,"I'd like one too!" then I said, "But this is a dog." He said he didn't care what she looked like. Then I said, "You don't understand, I've had Sex since I was 9 years old." He winked and said, "You must have been quite a kid." When I got married and went on my honeymoon, I took the dog with me. I told the motel clerk that I wanted a room for my wife and me and a special room for Sex. He said, "You don't need a special room . As long as you pay your bill we don't care what you do." I said, "Look, you don't seem to understand, Sex keeps me awake at night." The clerk said, "Funny--I have the same problem." One day I entered Sex in a contest, but before the competition began, the dog ran away. Another contestant asked me why I was just standing there, looking disappointed. I told him I had planned to have Sex in the contest. He told me I should have sold my own tickets. "But you don't understand," I said, "I had hoped to have Sex on TV." He said, "Now that cable is all over the place it's no big deal anymore." When my wife and I separated, we went to court to fight for custody of the dog, I said,"Your Honor, I had Sex before I was married." The judge said,"This courtroom isn't a confessional.

Three priests were in a railroad station on their way home to Pittsburgh. Behind the ticket counter was a very sexy, shapely, well endowed woman wearing a very tight, skimpy sweater. She made the three priests very nervous, so they drew straws to determine who would get the tickets. The first priest approached the window. "Young lady, I would like three pickets to titsburg." He completely lost his composure and fled. The second priest goes to the window. "Young lady, I would like three tickets to Pittsburgh and I would like the change in nipples and dimes." Mortified, he too fled. "Morons," the third priest mutters and moves to the window. "Young lady, I would like three tickets to Pittsburgh and I would like the change in nickels and dimes. And, if you insist on dressing like that, when you get to the pearly gates, St. Finger's going to shake his Peter at you." They took the bus.

Ms. Brooks: "What does a dog do that a man steps into?" : "Pants." Ms. Brooks: What starts with a C, ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin, whitish liquid?" : "Coconut."

So one evening he went to a singles bar where he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away. I may look like just an ordinary man," he said as he walked up to her but in just a week or two, my father will die, and I'll inherit 20 million dollars." Impressed, the woman went home with him that evening and, three days later, she became his stepmother. Women are so much smarter than men. ____________________________________________________

Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, August 31

The smoke from the forest fires is getting rather thick.
Not just a faint camp fire smell, but thick smoke obscuring
vision. This evening, while turning around when I was
bringing my pick-up to Barb, -her car, a PT Cruiser is a
lemon and now needs a water pump-, I backed into the driver
side door of her neighbor across the street.

I lost a taillight, just expensive plastic, but his nice
Volvo now has a nasty crease in the door. 
@#$% Smoke! 

The insurance will pay for the damage to the Volvo, but I
need to find some some cash for the tail light assembly of
my pick-up, before the cops order it off the road.

If you happen to have any excess cash in your piggy bank
 or PayPal, please send it to me! 

Have Fun!

She pressed her chest against him and rubbed her fingers through his hair,.... hoping to give him the best kiss that he had ever received. After the kiss, he turned and bolted for the door. "Oh!

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joshua Hubert, 35, Worcester, Massachusetts 7-year-old girl was asleep in grandparents' home before she was abducted, thrown off bridge by family friend The 7-year-old girl who police say was thrown off a bridge and into Lake Quinsigamond Sunday by a family friend was asleep on a chair inside her grandparent's home when she was grabbed, a prosecutor said Monday. Joshua Hubert, 35, of Worcester denied any involvement in the alleged abduction and attack on the 7-year-old girl Sunday morning. Prosecutor Cheryl Riddle said the girl was asleep in the living room at her grandparent's Forestdale Road home in Worcester when Hubert grabbed her and forced the child into his car around 2:30 a.m. Hubert was at the home attending a cookout, police said. Investigators said Hubert drove around with the girl in his car for more than an hour. At one point he stopped driving and choked the girl, police said. Eventually Hubert drove to a bridge between Worcester and Shrewsbury and threw the girl into Lake Quinsigmaond, police said. Police believe the girl was thrown from the Interstate 290 bridge based on where she ended up in Shrewsbury, but investigators are still working to confirm. The girl survived the fall, swam to shore and walked to a home nearby in Shrewsbury. "At approximately 4:30 a.m., about two hours later, a woman from Shrewsbury was awoken by knocks at her door and found the 7-year-old victim standing at her door in pajamas soaking wet," Riddle said. The girl told investigators she went to the nearest house that had lights on. The girl also identified Hubert as the man who attacked her. The girl had bruises on her body, marks on her neck and other injuries, Riddle said. She told investigators Hubert strangled her and threw her off the bridge. Hubert was arrested at the police station and arraigned on a kidnapping charge Monday in Worcester Central District Court. He is being held without bail until Thursday when he returns to court for a dangerousness hearing. More charges are expected to be filed against Hubert, the prosecutor said. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Louise Re: Download directories Dear Webby, There is a site I go to where I can download graphics.When I download them to downloads I can see what I have downloaded. When I go to downloads there is nothing there. Where did they disappear to? Also how would I make a new folder to put these downloads in so I can find them? I appreciate all the help you give me and others. Louise Dear Louise Windows downloads to the last location selected as a download destination, unless you tell it otherwise. Download something else, and you will see where it puts the stuff nowadays. You can also write down the name of the file you downloaded, and then do a search for it. A lot of your missing stuff will also be there. Use "SearchEverything". It is much faster than the Windows search. It will tell you the location of where that stuff is. You don't even need a complete file name, just part of it is usually enough. New folders: Use the File Explorer. Click on TOOOLS, Folder Options. Set it to use CLASSICAL mode and hit OK If necessary, click on Folders, so that it divides into 2 sections, with folders on the left and files on the right. NOW you have a useful tool. Find the root directory: (It's inconveniently hidden way down, in the My Computer icon) C:\ Highlight it. Go to the right side and Right-Click NEW Folder while "NewFolder" is still highlighted, type into it: 1down That will be your easy to find new download directory. Double-click it to go into it. Nothing there yet. Click on the icon to the left of the address bar on top, and drag it to an empty spot on the desktop, near the START button. Now you have a convenient and direct route to "1down". Right-Click in the empty space on the right side of the Explorer, where the new downloads will go, and select NEW, FOLDER. Name this folder PIX Then make one for MUSIC and one for MOVIES and one for KEEPERS. Now download something, but select as the download destination c:\1down It will show up in the folder you made, and if it is a picture, you drag it into PIX. Have FUN! DearWebby

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, William Henry Hoehn, 32 Fargo, North Dakota North Dakota woman accused in death of pregnant woman and kidnapping of newborn New details have emerged in the case of a North Dakota couple charged in the death of their eight-months-pregnant neighbor and the kidnapping of a baby believed to be hers, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE. Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, and her boyfriend, 32-year-old William Henry Hoehn, are charged in the death of neighbor Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, who had last been seen Aug. 19 before her body was found in a river Sunday night. According to the documents, Hoehn allegedly told police he arrived home from work on Aug. 19 to find Crews cleaning up blood in the bathroom. She was also holding a baby girl and allegedly told him, “This is our baby, this is our family,” the charging documents state. A newborn girl, believed to be LaFontaine-Greywind’s, was found in the apartment of the suspects, which the pregnant woman visited hours before she was reported missing. According to the court documents, Crews told detectives she had invited LaFontaine-Greywind to the couple’s apartment and taught the pregnant woman how to self-induce birth by breaking her own water. Crews claimed LaFontaine-Greywind gave her the baby on Aug. 21 — two days after LaFontaine-Greywind vanished from the same apartment building. Hoehn allegedly told police he removed garbage bags containing bloody towels and his own bloody shoes and allegedly left them in a dumpster in West Fargo. Crews and Hoehn have each been charged with conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit kidnapping and providing false information to law enforcement. They have not yet entered pleas to the charges against them. It is unclear if they have lawyers who could comment on their behalf. Both Hoehn and Crews remained in jail on Monday without bond. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Robin Re: KVM plus Audio switch Dear Webby, Starting soon I will have 2 computers on my desk. I understand you can connect both computers with a KVM switch but will connecting 2 computers to one monitor sacrifice performance? I see that there is a switch which includes a speaker and microphone but I don't think that is necessary..I only need speakers for one computer, which I already have..I don't think including an audio set with the switch means you won't have audio unless you get a switch with this feature, but I'm not sure. Your opinion? Thanks....R.J. Dear Robin There is no loss of hardware performance. You only need an audio switch included if you run the audio through your home or office stereo, like I do. However, if you use the little squeakers, that come with computers, connected to each machine, then each will have it's own sound anyway. Personally, I did not bother with an audio switch. Computer 1 goes to the stereo, computer 2 uses it's own squeakers. Those are plenty good enough for error beeps and announcement pings. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Cookie for this story: Our dog, Longie, suddenly began barking daily at 4 a.m. Irritated and sleepy, my husband, Larry, searched the back yard for what might have disturbed this otherwise placid animal. For three mornings in a row he found nothing amiss. Then the dog woke up the neighborhood again at 3 a.m. with frantic barking. When Larry looked out the window, he discovered someone throwing pebbles to land near Longie. Larry hurried outside and confronted the culprit. Crouching on the other side of the fence was our very quiet neighbor, the last man you'd suspect of wrongdoing. My husband demanded to know what he was doing. "My mother-in-law is visiting," the embarrassed neighbor explained. "She said If she loses her beauty sleep one more night, she says she'll leave."

Daily tip from Freezing Green Tomatoes Don't waste all the green tomatoes left over at the end of the growing season. Wash and slice the tomatoes. Pour out some yellow cornmeal in a shallow dish. Coat the tomatoes well. Stack the slices in baggies and freeze. Next time you want Fried Green Tomatoes, just place them in your buttered pan and fry! Salt, pepper or seasonings can be added at this time. By Mairmie ____________________________________________________

The suspects grabbed what they could and fled onto U.S. 17 at a high rate of speed, police said. The Nassau County Sheriff’s Office quickly pulled over the men. Money was on the floorboard on the car. The suspects were identified as John Kitchen, 29, from Saint Marys, Ga., and Dwight Dasher, 29, of Folkston, Ga. Both suspects were arrested and booked into the Nassau County Jail. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bris Re: Quality newsletter Dear Webby, I'm amazed at the consistency and quality of your newsletter.

In the cafeteria on the first day of fall semester at Kent State University, I saw three students hard at work on their calculators. Stunned that they had received such an obviously tough problem so early in the semester, I asked them what their assignment was. One girl looked at me and replied, "We're figuring out how many days until Christmas break."

Daily tip from Friends of the Library Books Sales A great way to support your local library and find good deals on books is to go to library book sales. Most libraries have them multiple times each year and the prices are very reasonable. Plus, the money goes back into the library to support buying new books or community resources.

____________________________________________________ A little girl asked her mother, "How did the human race come to be?" The mother answered, "God made Adam and Eve and they had children, and so was all mankind made.." Two days later the girl asked her father the same question.. The father answered, "Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved." The confused girl returned to her mother and said, "Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys?" The mother answered, "Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business. Several members did not approve of her extra curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence. She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon. She emphatically told George and several others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing. George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing. Later that evening, George and his 2 apprentices quietly parked their pickups in front of Mildred's house....walked home.... and left the trucks there all night! ____________________________________________________

One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, "Now don't get mad at me . . . I know we've been friends for a long time, but I just can't remember your name. I've thought and thought, but I just can't recall. Please tell me what your name is." Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just looked at her.

"What are you talking about? That's one of the largest banks in the world," he said. "Surely there must be some mistake." "I don't think so," she sniffed. "They just returned one of my checks with a note saying, 'Insufficient Funds.'" "Oh, that's just YOUR funds!", he explained. "You can't write any more checks until you have a job and paid off the checks you have written so far. Oh, and your Debit card won't work either until then.

Writing Tips: Don't abbrev. About sentence fragments. Don't not use no double negatives. Check to see if you any words out. Verbs has to agree with their subjects. Its important to use apostrophe's right. Don't use commas, that aren't necessary. A writer mustn't shift your point of view. It's better not to unnecessarily split an infinitive. Be carefully to use adjectives and adverbs correct. A preposition isn't a good thing to end a sentence with. Use hyphens in compound-words, not just in any two-word phrase. In letters compositions reports and things like that we use commas to keep a string of items apart. Only Proper Nouns should be capitalized. also a sentence should begin with a capital and end with a period Avoid clichés like the plague.

Daily tip from Saving Money on Furniture If you are going to buy cheap furniture, why not buy it really cheap? Visit your local thrift stores and look for gently used furniture. Keep an open mind. A coat of paint can make many pieces of furniture look new. Even particle board furniture can be painted, just use fine sand paper to lightly scuff the surface first. Tip provided by

____________________________________________________ The children begged for a hamster, and after the usual fervent vows that they alone would care for it, they got one. They named it Danny. Two months later, when Mom found her- self responsible for cleaning and feeding the creature, she located a prospective new home for it. The children took the news of Danny's imminent departure quite well, though one of them remarked, "He's been around here a long time--we'll miss him." "Yes," Mom replied, "But he's too much work for one person, and since I'm that one person, I say he goes." Another child offered, "Well, maybe if he wouldn't eat so much and wouldn't be so messy, we could keep him." But Mom was firm. "It's time to take Danny to his new home now," she insisted. "Go and get his cage." With one voice and in tearful outrage the children screamed, "Danny? We thought you said Daddy!" ___________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ Cassie walked into a gift shop that sold religious items. Near the cash register she saw a display of caps with WWJD printed on all of them. She she asked the clerk what the letters were supposed to mean, and the clerk replied that the letters stood for What Would Jesus Do, and was meant to inspire people to not make rash decisions, but rather to imagine what Jesus would do in the same situation. Cassie thought a moment and then replied, "Well, I don't think Jesus would pay $19.95 for one of these caps."
