______________________________________________________ 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.

One time the wife had had enough and actually pounded on the wall between the two apartments. There being no response she telephoned, only to get the answering machine. 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." "Well sweetie," the model purred, "all these interruptions sure wouldn't be helping, if he was doing what you suspect him of doing.

______________________________________________________ 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?" The worker showed me how to insert a bill, hit the spin button, and operate the release handle. "And where does the money come out?" I asked. He smiled and motioned to a far wall before saying, "Usually at the ATM machine over there."

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.

____________________________________________________ A young woman wasn't feeling well, and asked one her co-workers to recommend a physician. "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 artist, a lawyer, and a computer scientist are discussing the merits of a mistress. The artist tells of the passion, the thrill which comes with the risk of being discovered.

My wife thinks I'm with my mistress. My mistress thinks I'm home with my wife, and I can spend all night on the computer!"

______________________________________________________ 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?

Daily tip from Wrinkled Slacks But No Iron? This tips is especially useful when traveling and staying in a hotel. If you have wrinkled slacks but no iron, just put the slacks neatly over the towel bar in the bathroom while taking a shower. Be sure to close the bathroom door to trap as much steam as possible. The steam will help ease some of the wrinkles. It also helps to smooth them out with your hands while it is steamy. Tip provided by ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ >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!" This prompted a deacon to shout, "Hit him again, Lord! Hit him again!"

___________________________________________________ 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."

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.

The teacher asked, ", what's your problem?" answered, "I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!" Ms. Brooks had had enough. She took to the principal's office. While waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was. The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give a test. If failed to answer any of his questions, was to go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed. was brought in and the conditions were explained and agreed to take the test. Principal: "What is 3 x 3?" : "9." Principal: "What is 6 x 6?" : "36." And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader should know. The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, "I think can go to the 3rd grade."

Ms. Brooks: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?" The principal wondered why would she ask such a question! replied: "Pockets." 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 ____________________________________________________

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! ____________________________________________________

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.

____________________________________________________ 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!" ___________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tiffany Jackson, 34, Pitcairn, Pennsylvania Mom Left 5 Kids Alone To Help Fugitive Boyfriend Police say a Pittsburgh-area woman is facing charges for leaving her five children alone so she could drive her fugitive boyfriend across the state to avoid arrest. Thirty-four-year-old Tiffany Jackson, of Pitcairn, is charged with child endangerment and with hindering the apprehension of her boyfriend, 24-year-old Raheem Harvey, among other charges. Pitcairn police say Jackson drove Harvey to Philadelphia on Wednesday because police have warrants for his arrest, while leaving her children behind. Police say they range in age from 16 years old to 9 months old. Jackson told her 16-year-old daughter to watch the other children and didn't say when she would return home. The daughter then called her aunt, who contacted Pitcairn Police. “They haven't heard from their mother in over a day,” Pitcairn Police Chief Scott Farally said. “The 16-year-old reached out to her aunt, who was a complainant of this pertaining to them being alone and being concerned and scared.” Police say they've tried but failed to find Harvey at Jackson's house several times and that they have body camera video of her being told he's wanted by police on assault and other charges. Jackson and Harvey were arrested at a Greensburg hotel early Friday afternoon. According to the hotel, Jackson and Harvey checked in last Monday. They reportedly got into a fight and hotel employees threatened to call police. After seeing a news report about a woman accused of abandoning her children, hotel employees called state police Friday morning. State police were forced to taser Harvey after a short foot chase. “We were able to go and pick up Mrs. Jackson at the PSP in Greensburg,” Farally said. “However, Mr. Harvey is still in the custody of Pennsylvania State Police for additional charges.” Jackson was arraigned on numerous counts of endangering the welfare of children, recklessly endangering another person and hindering apprehension. Harvey remains locked up in the Westmoreland County Jail, charged with hindering apprehension and resisting arrest. As for the children, police say there were no serious signs of neglect, but they say baby-sitting four kids who don't know the whereabouts of their mother is too much to ask of a 16-year-old girl. “Is a 16-year-old able to baby-sit? Correct. However, when the 16-year-old reaches out for help, knowing that she's too stressed to do this and she doesn't know what to do, that's when the police got involved,” Farally said. Jackson was previously convicted in 2011 of endangering the welfare of children, when she abandoned them the same way, and she spent two years under house arrest. She is now jailed on $50,000 bond with a preliminary hearing scheduled for September. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Roon Re: Yahoo victim Dear Webby, I used to receive your newsletter daily for many years, but it stopped a while ago.

Then I tried to delete the UID with no success, so I still cannot get your daily humor which I enjoy. Can you check on your end and see if there is a problem in UID Please let me know if you check and find nothing, and I will know if the trouble was on your end if I start receiving it again. I really miss the jokes. Thanks, Ron Dear Ron You are a silly Yahoo! and are just fake fronts for people, who don't want to be called a "silly yahoo". Underneath the phony front, it`s still Yahoo.

Daily tip from Stubborn Lug Nuts Carry a cross shaft lug wrench in your car to use when you get a flat. It gives you greater leverage than the single shaft wrenches that come with most new cars. You can also carry a metal pipe to fit over one of the shafts for even better leverage. Use short, sharp impacts rather than applying constant pressure to loosen a stubborn nut. Tip provided by A small can of WD40 should also be with your spare tire. Spray a bit onto the lug nuts, wait a few minutes, and THEN use the wrench. A rock or an old crescent wrench to beat on the cross wrench is also helpful. Remember, to UNDO lug nuts, you have to turn them counterclockwise. If all else fails, call AAA. You can get a membership over the phone. They will have a friendly guy show up quite shortly and he will have all kinds of tools and even WD40. Keep their local number in your glove box or their silvery sticker on the inside of the trunk. If you got it on the outside, one of their patrols will stop and see if you need help if they see you on the side of the road. I highly recommend a membership in AAA! Btw., you get one free tow per year with your membership. That can easily save you $500. You can sign up online. They will mail you the silver sticker and paperwork. Have FUN!

In a trial, in a small SC town, a prosecuting attorney called his first witness to the stand. She was sworn in, asked if she would tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, on the Bible, so help her God. The witness was a proper well-dressed elderly lady, the grandmother type, well-spoken and poised. The prosecuting attorney approached the woman and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know me?" She responded, "Why, yes I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a young boy and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, cheat on your wife, manipulate people and talk badly about them behind their backs!!. You think you're a rising big shot when you haven't the sense to realize you will never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper-pushing shyster. Yes, I know you quite well." The lawyer was stunned. He couldn't even think for a few moments. Then, he slowly backed away, fearing the looks on the judge and jurors' faces, not to mention the court reporter who documented every word. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?" She replied again, "Why, yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, has a bad drinking problem. The man can't build or keep a normal relationship with anyone and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. Yes, I know ! him." The defense attorney almost fainted and was seen slipping downward in his chair, looking at the floor. Laughter mixed with gasps thundered throughout the court room and the audience was on the verge of chaos. At this point, the judge brought the courtroom to silence, called both counselors to the bench, and in a very quiet voice said, "If either of you crooked bastards asks her if she knows me, I'll throw you both in jail for contempt, and throw away the key!" ______________________________________________________ No-riding-on-my-back-I'm-still-digesting-the-last-tourist!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tony Futch, 25, Osceola County, Floriduh Drunk driver smashed into 17 cars while trying to park A drunken driver in Florida turned a parking lot into his own personal demolition derby, smashing into 17 cars while trying to park his Chevy Blazer, according to reports. Tony Futch, 25, turned into a one-man wrecking crew Friday in Osceola County when he returned home to the Gate Condominium complex allegedly inebriated, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Futch is accused of first ramming through the gate of the apartment complex around 4 a.m., then driving around in circles and smashing into his neighbors’ parked cars before parking his 2003 Blazer, according to an arrest report. The 17 cars were damaged in eight separate crashes. Becky Olsen, who lives in the complex, estimated her Hyundai Elantra sustained about $2,000 in damage, which she noticed as she was about to go to work. “I just came down, saw that the car next to mine was crooked and thought ‘what kind of jerk parked like that?’” Olsen told the Sentinel. Cops had to pepper spray Futch, who became “combative” and reeked of alcohol, according to an arrest report. The allegedly boozed-up bozo told them, “I’ll tell you everything I did, I will tell you anything you want” as he was being arrested. Futch — who had his license suspended in 2013 for DUI — refused to provide a breath sample. He was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and also faces a charge of resisting arrest. He’s being held in Osceola County Jail on $9,250 bond. No license, no insurance. Typical. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rosie Re: Back Up bat with log Dear Webby, Once upon a time, long, long ago, when you were a harried mobile tech, occasionally sprinting through our offices with a computer and your tool case under your arms, or a quarter-ton IBM 3810 laser printer on your shoulder, fixing not just hardware, but anything from bimbo-malfunctions to Word Perfect macros, you wrote me a back-up bat. I transfered it to every new machine I got and it worked fine from DOS 3 to Windows 7. Unfortunately, I forgot to take it with me when I quit in a huff and formatted my work computer.

____________________________________________________ There are two statues in a park; one of a nude man and one of a nude woman. They had been facing each other across a pathway for a hundred years, when one day an angel comes down from the sky and, with a single gesture, brings the two to life. The angel tells them, "As a reward for being so patient through a hundred blazing summers and dismal winters, you have been given life for thirty minutes to do what you've wished to do the most." He looks at her, she looks at him, and they go running behind the shrubbery. The angel waits patiently as the bushes rustle and giggling ensues. After fifteen minutes, the two return, out of breath and laughing.... The angel tells them, "Um, you have fifteen minutes left, would you care to do it again? He asks her. "Shall we?" She eagerly replies, "Oh, yes, let's! But let's change positions. This time, I'll hold the pigeon down, and you sh.. on his head."

___________________________________________________ Classic vasectomy: After having their 11th child, an Alabama couple decided that was enough (they could not afford a larger doublewide). So, the husband went to his doctor (who also treated mules) and told him that he and his wife/cousin didn't want to have any more children. The doctor told him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy that could fix the problem. The doctor instructed him to go home, get a cherry bomb (fireworks are legal in 'Bama), light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to his ear and count to 10. The Alabamian said to the doctor, "I may not be the smartest man, but I don't see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me" So, the couple drove to Georgia to get a second opinion. The Georgia physician was just about to tell them about the procedure for a vasectomy when he noticed that they were from Alabama. This doctor instead told the man to go home and get a cherry bomb, light it, place it in a beer can, hold it to his ear and count to 10. Figuring that both learned physicians couldn't be wrong, the man went home, lit a cherrybomb and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count. "1, 2, 3, 4, 5 . . . . ", at which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs and resumed counting on his other hand....

____________________________________________________ While we are in memory lane... It's the Spring of 1957 and Bobby goes to pick up his date. He's a pretty hip guy with his own car. When he goes to the front door, the girl's father answers and invites him in. "Carrie's not ready yet. Why don't you have a seat?" Carrie's father asks Bobby what they're planning to do. Bobby replies politely that they will probably just go to the soda shop or a movie. "Why don't you two go out and screw? I hear all the kids are doing it!" Naturally, this comes as a quite a surprise to Bobby so he asks Carrie's dad to please repeat himself. "Yeah," says Carrie's father, "Carrie really likes to screw; she'd screw all night if we let her!" A few minutes later, Carrie comes downstairs in her little poodle skirt and announces that she's ready to go. Almost breathless with anticipation, Bobby escorts his date out of the front door. About 20 minutes later, a very dishevelled Carrie rushes back into the house, slams the door behind her, and screams at her father, "Dad, it's called the TWIST !" ____________________________________________________

Sedekiya had argued with his roommate before pulling a gun and demanding money, and "bound the man with tape and fell asleep inside the apartment," the statement read. An affidavit says that amid a verbal dispute, Sedekiya pointed a gun at his roommate and threatened to kill him before binding him with duct tape, according to the Abilene Reporter-News. Sedekiya was also accused in the report of stealing $80 from his roommate and breaking the roommate's phone. "The victim escaped the apartment while the suspect was asleep and called police from a neighbor's apartment," the police statement read.

It doen't seem like its helping at all,where does all the spyware come from and go to?I do have malewarebytes also, should I have them both together? Tyvm for all your help its gr8ly appreciated... Richi Hi Richi Your machine is infected with Incredimail, and in addition to that, you got AVG. You are a real crap magnet! Superantispyware CAN be useful as a "stinger" to go after one specific spyware item, but it is not meant to be used daily. If it picks up "more than 600 pieces of spyware" daily, then it is obviously trashed. UNinstall it completely with Revo Uninstaller or something like that. Download a fresh copy IF and when you need it for a specific spyware item, and dump it after that item has been found and gotten rid of. Then scan with Malwarebytes. That gets rid of bad shit. You can also use the free Spyware-Search&Destroy, and of course CrapCleaner. They get rid of stuff, that is not really bad, but just a nuisance. Both are in my tool box at, and have been for decades.

The doctor operated and after the surgery advised him that all was well. However, in the recovery room the patrolman kept feeling something pulling at the hairs on his chest. Worried that it might be a second surgery the doctor hadn't told him about, he finally got enough energy to pull his hospital gown down so he could look at what was making him so uncomfortable. Taped firmly across his hairy chest were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn't come off easily. Written in large black letters was the sentence...

From here in Canada what is going on in the US looks
ridiculously insane. Robert E Lee was never a slave owner, and
the feds wanted him as a general, but he decided to defend the
Virginia hillbillies against the feds and their unilateral

There was nothing racial about it, just the Southern
Hillbillies standing up against the feds.

If these L-.... swallowed a bunch of mosquitos to get their
combined IQ to a positive number, then they would make Robert E
Lee their hero and patron saint. After all, they want to stand
up against the feds. 

Aside from Soros and Hillary, WHO is their hero?

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rolando Naranjo, 41, Betsy Espinoza,33, Hialeah, Floriduh Parents arrested, children in state custody after raid of Florida grow house A suspected marijuana grow house in Hialeah has two parents in custody and children found inside in the hands of the Department of Children and Families. The Miami Herald reports a Palm Springs Middle School teacher noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the 11-year-old boy’s backpack. He notified a Miami-Dade Schools police officer. A police report says the boy told officers there are marijuana plants in his house and his dad uses his backpack to transport the drug. He also said people go to his house to buy marijuana. The raid happened Monday at an apartment complex on West 25th Court and West 60th Street. 41-year-old Rolando Naranjo and 32- year-old Betsy Espinoza were arrested and are facing multiple counts, including marijuana possession, possession of manufacturing equipment and child neglect. Police say they had received a call after a teacher for the couple's 11-year-old child said his clothes smelled like marijuana. Once they entered the home, they found the parents, the 11-year-old and a four-year-old child were living in one room while the other bedroom in the apartment was being used to grow the drug. A police report said there was very little food in the house as well as mold growing and dirty clothes throughout the home - along with no way to prevent the kids from entering the room with the drugs. Officials confiscated 10 marijuana plants, weighing a total of 31 pounds, along with high wattage lamps, scales, pipes and other items used for distribution and sale. The apartment is located less than 1000 feet from Ben Shepherd Elementary School. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rhonda Re: Printing multiple copies with ClickBook Dear Webby, You wrote about printing brochures with ClickBook a while back.

So the parents began to yell even louder. "Who would sell a car like that for fifteen dollars?" they said. "It was the lady up the street," said the boy. I don't know her name-they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a Porsche for fifteen dollars." "Oh my Goodness!," moaned the mother, "she must be a child abuser. Who knows what she will do next? John, you go right up there and see what's going on." So the boy's father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived and found her out in the yard calmly planting petunias! He introduced himself as the father of the boy to whom she had sold a Porsche for fifteen dollars and demanded to know why she did it. "Well," she said, "this morning I got a phone call from my husband. I thought he was on a business trip, but learned from a friend he has run off to Hawaii with his secretary and really doesn't intend to come back.

Police said the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation wanted 26-year-old Ladarius Blue of Waterloo for failing to register as a sex offender. DCI agents haven't known where Blue was since early June. The U.S. Marshals and DCI investigators had narrowed the search for Blue to Cedar Rapids. Police, DCI agents, Linn County Sheriff's Deputies, and U.S. Marshals set up surveillance on Monday in the 1300 block of G Avenue and saw Blue leave a residence in what appeared to be an attempt to observe the solar eclipse. When officers approached him, Blue ran off, leading officers on a foot chase through the northeast side of Cedar Rapids. A citizen told law enforcement they had watched a man climb into their yard waste container in the 800 block of Oakland Road NE. That's where officers arrested Blue before taking him to the Linn County Jail. Blue was convicted in 2010 in Fayette County for a lascivious act with a female child under age 13. In 2011, Blue pleaded guilty in Fayette County for failure to register as a sex offender. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Maura Re: Multiple eplorer windows Dear Webby, ...

One day the operator summed up nerve enough to ask him why the regularity. "I'm foreman of the local sawmill," he explained. "Every day I have to blow the whistle at noon so I call you to get the exact time." The operator giggled, "That's really funny," she said. "All this time we've been setting our clock by your whistle.

Daily tip from Crack a Nut Without a Nut Cracker No nut cracker on hand? Here are some other ways to crack a nut. 1. Use a vice grip or pliers. 2. Place the nut in a towel and hit it with a blunt option like a hammer or mallet. Tip provided by A safer way to crack nuts is to put them into a leather or canvas baggie, and hold that baggie near the hinge of an opened door, where the door and frame make an open "V". Slowly and gently closing the door part way cracks the shells of the nuts in the baggie. Slowly and gently, just in case your fingers are at the wrong end of the baggie.

The eclipse was quite neat through my old gas welding
goggles. This was the 4th eclipse I watched with them. As
always I was surprised at how sharp the sun looks through
them. Not uncomfortably bright, but very sharp.

The neatest trick, though, was what Noella did. She used a
mirror to shine the eclipse onto her neighbors siding.
Keep that in mind for the next one!

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Wyndham Lathem Andrew Warren Chicago, Illinois Illinois Professor's Twisted Fantasies Led to Stabbing Two men from the academic world joined forces to live out their twisted murder fantasy, prosecutors said at a hearing for Wyndham Lathem and Andrew Warren in Chicago Sunday. Prosecutors said Lathem, a microbiology professor at Northwestern University, and Warren, a treasurer at Oxford University, communicated for months in an online chat room about their "sexual fantasies of killing others and then themselves," the Chicago Tribune reports. Prosecutors said the men decided to kill other people before killing each other simultaneously. Lathem allegedly decided that their first victim would be Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, his 26-year- old boyfriend. Prosecutors said that on July 27, days after Lathem paid for Warren to travel to the US to carry out their fantasies, they attacked Cornell-Duranleau while he was asleep in Lathem's apartment, the AP reports. The medical examiner testified that the attack left him with 70 stab wounds, some of which almost decapitated him. The two men then went on the run instead of carrying out their plan to kill each other, prosecutors say. After eight days, they surrendered to authorities in California. Lathem's lawyer told the court that his client, a plague expert who has since been fired by Northwestern, is a "distinguished microbiologist," but the judge denied bail for both men. "The heinous facts speak for themselves," he said. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rosa Re: Find newsletters Dear Webby, Is there a site somewhere where I can find and select specific newsletters and see a sample or try them out?

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Christina Hester, 39, Fort Myers, Floriduh Woman caught snorting cocaine from iPhone screen in school parent pick-up line Christina Hester, 39, of Fort Myers, was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly snorting cocaine in her car in the parents' pick-up line at Lexington Middle School. A school resource officer said they witnessed Hester chopping up a white powdery substance on her iPhone screen using a credit card, according to a Lee County Sheriff's Office report. The report said she snorted the substance with a cut straw. The officer had her get out of the car and go up to his office, where he made the arrest. The officer field-tested the substance, which tested positive for cocaine. The total package weight was 0.5 grams. Hester is in custody on $6,500 bail, facing charges of cocaine possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. The make and model of her car were not listed in a sheriff's office report. It's not entirely clear whether she is the parent of a student at the school. The report said the Department of Children and Families was contacted. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bruce Re: BCC Dear Webby, I receive forwarded e-mails with lots of valid addresses in them.

Thanks to Ross for this classic! Emanuel Macron, The French President, is sitting in his office when his telephone rings. "Hallo, Mr. Macron!" a heavily accented voice said. "This is Paddy Down at the Harp Pub in County Clare, Ireland. I am ringing to inform you that we are officially declaring war on ye!" "Well, Paddy," Macron replied, "This is indeed important news! How big is your army?" "Right now," says Paddy, after a moment's calculation, "there is meself, me Cousin Sean, me next door neighbour Seamus, and the entire darts team from the pub. That makes eight!" Macron paused. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 100,000 men in my army waiting to move on my command." "Begoora!" says Paddy. "I'll have to ring you back." Sure enough, the next day, Paddy calls again. "Mr. Macron, the war is stil on. We have managed to get us some infantry equipment!" "And what equipment would that be Paddy?" Macron asks. "Well, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Murphy's farm tractor," answers Paddy. Macron sighs amused. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 6,000 tanks and 5,000 armored personnel carriers. Also, I have increased my army to 150,000 since we last spoke." "Saints preserve us!" says Paddy. "I'll have to get back to you." Sure enough, Paddy rings again the next day. "Mr. Macron, the war is still on! We have managed to get ourselves airborne! We have modified Jackie McLaughlin's ultra-light with a couple of shotguns in the cockpit, and four boyos from the Shamrock Pub have joined us as well!" Macron was silent for a minute and then cleared his throat "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 100 bombers and 200 fighter planes. My military bases are surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And since we last spoke, I have increased my army to 200,000!" "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!" says Paddy, "I will have to ring you back." Sure enough, Paddy calls again the next day. "Top o' the mornin', Mr. Macron! I am sorry to inform you that we have had to call off the war." "Really? I am sorry to hear that," says Macron. "Why the sudden change of heart?" "Well," says Paddy, "we had a long chat over a few jars of Guinness, and decided there is no damn way we can feed 200,000 prisoners."

Daily tip from Line Drying Clothing Tips and Tricks By andrea.henderso80 [3 Posts, 99 Comments] Using a clothesline outside or a drying rack inside can help save in more than one way. Drip or line drying saves on the electric bill because you aren't using the dryer as much or adding heat to the A/C load by using the dryer. It also saves your clothes because it won't shrink them or wear them out as fast and helps them stay bright and new looking longer. If you need to fluff them up a little or remove those stiff wrinkles, then while they are just a little bit damp, put them in the dryer on low heat with a couple of tennis balls for a little bit. Or after they are dry, put them in the dryer with a damp towel on low heat and again add tennis balls. You will be amazed! The combination of the low heat and a little dampness has a way of releasing wrinkles and the tennis balls add the fluff. You don't really need heat for fluffing your jeans or whatever. Just set the dryer to FLUFF, or DELICATE, no heat, add a tennis ball or smooth baby's sneaker, and they will fluff up quite nicely. Here it is almost always windy, so line drying takes all wrinkles out and it is very rarely that I have to use the dryer. I set up a clothes line on a reel from the porch to the garage. I can hang clothes even in the rain, while I am under the porch roof, and let the rain give the clothes an extra soft rinse. They will dry when the rain stops, then I pull the line and have the clothes come to me. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

Father Patrick replied, "I'm afraid not; we cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane, and there's no tellin' what they believe. Maybe they'll do something for the creature." Muldoon said, "I'll go right away Father. Do ya' think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?"

Every day they would sit together to eat their lunch. They discovered that they both brought chicken sandwiches every day! This went on all through the fourth and fifth grades, until one day he noticed that her sandwich wasn't a chicken sandwich. He said, "Hey, how come you're not eating chicken, don't you like it anymore?" She said "I love it but I have to stop eating it." "Why?" he asked. She pointed to her lap and said "Cause I'm starting to grow little feathers down there!" "Let me see" he said. "Okay" and she pulled up her skirt. He looked and said, "That's right. You are! Better not eat any more chicken." He kept eating his chicken sandwiches until one day he brought peanut butter. He said to the little girl, "I have to stop eating chicken sandwiches, I'm starting to get feathers down there too!" She asked if she could look, so he pulled down his pants for her. She said "Oh, my God, it's too late for you! You've already got the neck and the gizzards!!!!!!!! ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Daniel Gaines, 35, Camdenton, Mo Domestic Assault Suspect Rams Patrol Car A man from Camdenton is jailed after he allegedly assaulted his wife and rammed a deputy patrol car while attempting to evade authorities. 35-year-old Daniel Gaines is accused of hitting his wife in the face and choking her on Monday night. Deputies got a 911 call at 10:20 p.m. Monday about the domestic disturbance off Hidden Drive in Camdenton but Gaines had left the scene before police arrived. Deputies located the man near Highway 54 and the North Highway 5 exit, according to a press release. Deputies with the Camden County Sheriff's Department briefly stopped Gaines' red 2010 F-150 truck around 11:53 p.m. before he sped off quickly. One deputy attempted to pass Gaines during the chase. Gaines rammed the patrol car numerous times on the dry gap bridge prior to the Niangua Bridge, eventually disabling the patrol vehicle. He then continued driving towards his home, through a ditch which eventually brought the chase to an end. Gaines then began to, as the press release states, "advance(d) on the deputies at which time a deputy’s taser was deployed." He was taken into custody and charged with first-degree assault, domestic assault, property damage, resisting arrest, and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Gaines is being held without bond in Camden County Jail. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Nadia Re: Voice message email Dear Webby, I keep getting these emails with "Click attachment to listen to Voice Message" supposedly an attachment from some number, name unavailable.

Daily tip from Bread Crumbs Save leftover bread in a bag in your freezer. Bagels, baguettes, biscuits, crackers, rolls, sandwich bread all work well. When the bag gets full or you need some bread crumbs, process the bread into very fine crumbs in your food processor or blender. Then store the leftover crumbs in the freezer. Tip provided by If you want gourmet crumbs (coarser, and from mostly crust) make bread sticks from any left over bread dough, let them dry a few days and then smash them to crumbs in a gallon jar by hitting them with a piece of wood. The difference in taste is well worth the effort! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

Now, to use the trick you told mark today, I do need to know. Can you please tell us again? I do have a graphics program. Dolores Dear Dolores The biggest challenge is to decide, what you want on the icon. You can take any picture you want, but you will see that when you reduce it to icon size, most pitures will be a confusing mess. Usually, unless you have a very high contrast picture like today's or yesterday's picture of the day, it will be easier to just paint something. Create a new image, 64 x 64, and make the background the same as your desktop background. Save it as the name you want to give it, but with a .BMP extension. Yes, BMP, just like we used in the 80's. Microsoft insists that icons be backward compatible all the way back to DOS, just the user interface gets changed all the time to annoy you. Then take a contrasting color and paint a symbol or a number. You can even use the text tool and write a symbol. If you use the WingDingas font, then you get astrological signs, playing cards, and all kinds of neat stuff. Try that first on a bigger picture and write the whole alphabet to see which letter produces the symbol you want. Ok, once you have a recognizable high contrast picture, for example the flying (turned sideways) 69, that is the letter a in Wingding font, save it as for example 69.bmp and close the file. Now use the file explorer or DOS and rename the file to 69.ico. Make sure it is in a place, that you can find easily. Next go to the shortcut that should have that icon. Right-click it, Properties, Change Icon and browse to your new icon. Apply, OK Done. That is all there is to it. Next icon. All you have to remember is: 64 x 64 size, high contrast. Have FUN!

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Ross for bringing back this steamboat classic: The Romantic Sailor A beautiful young New York woman was so depressed that she decided to end her life by throwing herself into the ocean. But just before she could throw herself from the docks, a handsome young sailor stopped her. "You have so much to live for," said the sailor. "Look, I'm off to Europe tomorrow and I can stow you away on my ship. I'll take care of you, bring you food every day, and keep you happy." With nothing to lose, combined with the fact that she had always wanted to go to Europe, the woman accepted. That night the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a lifeboat. From then on, every night he would bring her three sandwiches and make love to her until dawn. Three weeks later she was discovered by the captain during a routine inspection. "What are you doing here?" asked the captain. "I have an arrangement with one of the sailors," she replied. "He brings me food and I get a free trip to Europe. Plus he's having me every night." "He certainly is," replied the captain. "This is the Staten Island Ferry." ___________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ >From Paula Dear Webby, can you please bring back that bricklayer's accident report? Paula Sure, Paula. I remember sen ding that around via fax before the Internet, and a few times since then. Here it is: It seems wrong to laugh at someone else's misfortune, but.... This is a bricklayer's accident report, which was printed in the newsletter of the British equivalent of the Workers' Compensation Board. This is a true story. Dear Sir I am writing in response to your request for additional information in Block 3 of the accident report form. I put "Poor planning" as the cause of my accident. You asked for a fuller explanation and I trust the following details will be sufficient. I am a bricklayer by trade. On the day of the accident, I was working alone on the roof of a new six-storey building. When I completed my work, I found I had some bricks left over, which, when weighed later were found to be slightly in excess of 500lbs. Rather than carry the bricks down by hand, I decided to lower them in a barrel by using a pulley, which was attached to the side of the building on the sixth floor. Securing the rope at ground level, I went up to the roof, swung the barrel out and loaded the bricks into it. Then I went down and untied the rope, holding it tightly to ensure a slow descent of the bricks. You will note in Block 11 of the accident report form that I weigh 135lbs. Due to my surprise at being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence of mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a rapid rate up the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel which was now proceeding downward at an equally impressive speed. This explains the fractured skull, minor abrasions and the broken collarbone, as listed in Section 3 of the accident report form. Slowed only slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stopping until the fingers of my right hand were two knuckles deep into the pulley. Fortunately by this time I had regained my presence of mind and was able to hold tightly to the rope, in spite of the excruciating pain I was now beginning to experience. At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the ground and the bottom fell out of the barrel. Now devoid of the weight of the bricks, that barrel weighed approximately 50lbs. I refer you again to my weight. As you might imagine, I began a rapid descent, down the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel coming up. This accounts for the two fractured ankles, broken tooth and severe lacerations of my legs and lower body. Here my luck began to change slightly. The encounter with the barrel seemed to slow me enough to lessen my injuries when I fell into the pile of bricks and fortunately only three vertebrae were cracked. I am sorry to report, however, as I lay there on the pile of bricks, in pain, unable to move, I again lost my composure and presence of mind and let go of the rope and I lay there watching the empty barrel begin its journey back down onto me. This explains the two broken legs. I hope this answers your inquiry. Leonard Cromley

One day two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me," said one boy. The bucket was so full, several rolled out toward the fence. Cycling down the road by the cemetery was a third boy. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me." He knew what it was. "Oh my," he shuddered, "It's Satan and St. Peter dividing the souls at the cemetery." He cycled down the road fast as he could and found an old man with a cane, hobbling along. "Come here quick," said the boy, "You won't believe what I heard. Satan and St. Peter are down at the cemetery dividing the souls." The man said, "Shooo, you brat, can't you see I'm finding it hard to walk as it is." But after several pleas, the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me..." The old man whispered, "Boy, you've been telling the truth. Let's see if we can see the devil himself." Shivering with fear, they peered through the fence, yet they were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of Satan. At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. And one last one for you. That's all. Now let's go get those two nuts by the fence, and we'll be done." They say the old guy made it back to town five minutes before the boy with the bicycle. ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Debra Wisler, 39, Millville City, New Jersey Mom abandons 10-year-old son with special needs in woods Debra Wisler, 39, of Millville City A New Jersey woman is accused of abandoning her 10-year-old son, who has special needs, in the woods. Debra Wisler, 39, of Millville City, is charged with endangering the welfare of a child, according to the New Jersey State Police. Troopers said that a passing motorist spotted the boy wandering Aug. 3 in a wooded area near the visitor's center at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst near Trenton. The motorist contacted military personnel at the base, who took the boy in and gave him food, water and treated minor injuries he had suffered. The boy told his rescuers that his mother took him into the woods with his luggage and left him there, troopers said. He said he fell asleep, but woke up hungry. The boy was able to give them his mother's name and phone number. State police investigators and social workers placed the boy in a temporary home while they investigated the case, troopers said. When they talked to Wisler the next day, they determined that she was trying to enroll her son in a child program at the base. CBS New York reported that investigators believe she abandoned him nearby after learning that he was not eligible for the program. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Mark Re: Uncomplicating Explorer Dear Webby, It irks me every time when I open the Windows file Explorer that it starts focused on Desktop, My documents instead of c:\ Is there a way to fix that ? Mark Dear Mark I agree that it's a silly nuisance to have to tippy-toe all the way up to the root first before you can start doing what you plan to do. Fortunately it's easy to fix the stupid rigmarole. Open the file explorer and click on TOOLS, FolderOptions. Select Classic, if you haven't already. Hit OK Go to the address bar on top and type in there C:\ and hit Enter. Drag the little icon to the left of the address bar onto your desktop, preferably near the START button. Touch that new shortcut icon and hit F2 to rename it to C: or something short. Done. Now, when you click that icon, the file explorer will open at the top of the C:\ drive.

A judge was instructing the jury that a witness was not necessarily to be regarded as untruthful because he changed his statement after he gave it to the police. "For example," he said, "when I entered my chambers today, I was positive that I had my gold watch in my pocket. But then I remembered that I left in on my nightstand in my bedroom." When the judge returned home that evening, his wife asked him "Why so much urgency for your watch? Isn't sending three men to pick it up for you a bit extreme?" "What?" said the judge, "I didn't send anyone for my watch, let alone three people. What did you do?" "I gave it to the first one," said the wife, "he knew exactly where it was."

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

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

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

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

Daily tip from Refrigerator Pops Recipes By Darlene [52 Posts, 14 Comments] With summer almost here, I found some really good but healthy refrigerator pops for the kids. It took a while to dig them out but I did and thought I would share them with you! I hope your kids enjoy them. In fact, they really are good for adults as we have to watch those calories that are not there one day but somehow those shorts you just wore refuse to fit. So here goes, they are considered to be healthy snacking which is hard in the summer to find with all the wonderful looking desserts and fancy ice cream cones. It is hard to find good snacks but here are some. Good Luck and enjoy! Strawberry-Banana Cream Pops Ingredients: 2 (8 oz.) cartons of strawberry yogurt 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries 1 ripe banana 1 Tbsp. honey 8 (3 oz.) cold drink cups 8 wooden sticks Directions: In your blender or food processor bowl with metal blade, combine yogurt, strawberries, banana and honey; blend till smooth. Fill each cup with about 1/3 cup yogurt mixture. Place cups in freezer until partially frozen, (about 1 hour). Insert sticks, freeze until firm (about 2 hours). Remove drink cups and serve. MMMM, now I want one! I am not trying to be funny but I am thinking summer and having one of these! Pineapple Orange Pops Ingredients: 8 oz. carton plain yogurt 8 oz. can crushed pineapple, undrained 6 oz. can frozen pineapple-orange juice concentrate, thawed 8 (3 oz.) cold drink cups 8 wooden sticks Directions: In blender or food processor in bowl with metal blade, combine yogurt, pineapple and pineapple-orange juice concentrate, blend until smooth. Fill each cup with about 1/3 cup pineapple mixture. Place cups in freezer until partially frozen, (about 1 hr). Insert sticks then freeze till firm, about 2 hours. Remove cups and serve. Icy Watermelon Pops Cut watermelon into slices about 1 1/4 inches thick. Cut each slice into pie shaped wedges of desired size. Using a sharp knife, pierce rind, insert wooden stick.

"All right, ladies, think about this," bellowed the drill instructor. "If you could have ten minutes alone, right now, with anyone in the world, who would it be?" Amid much mumbling, one voice was heard from the back row. "My recruiter." ___________________________________________________

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

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

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

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

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

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

I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents. The next morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and sold them at 5:00 pm for 20 cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I'd accumulated a fortune of $1.37. Then my wife's father died and left us two million dollars. That was quite a lot of money in those days!"

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

Not to be outdone, another friend pulls out a $20 bill. She called the guy back, licks the $20 bill, and sticks it to his other butt cheek. In another attempt to impress the rest of us, my third friend pulls out a $50 bill and calls the guy over, and licks the $50 bill. I'm worried about the way things are going, but fortunately, she just stuck it to one of his butt cheeks again. My relief was short-lived. Seeing the way things are going, the guy races over to me! Now everyone's attention is focused on me, and the guy is egging me on to try to top the $50. My brain was churning as I reached for my wallet. What could I do? The woman in me took over!

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dennis Strickland 33, Sioux City, Iowa $1M bill deposit attempt leads to Iowa man’s drug arrest Authorities say a man who tried to deposit what he presented as a $1 million bill has been charged with drug possession in Iowa. A criminal complaint says Sioux City police officers were called to a Northwest Bank branch Thursday to talk to a man who tried to deposit the bill into his account. The officers asked 33-year-old Dennis Strickland whether he had any more of the bills and that a baggie fell out when he emptied a pocket. The complaint says the baggie contained methamphetamine. The U.S. Treasury Department says it has never produced a $1 million bill. There was no mention yet about a counterfeiting charge. That used to be severely frowned upon. Iowa court records say Strickland is scheduled to be back in court Monday. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dick Re: Resizer Program Dear Webby, I noticed that someone wanted to resize a picture. I use Free Picture Resizer.exe. It's easy to use. The upload may want to add other programs, like Picmos Tools, but this is a useful/harmless program. Dick Dear Dick There are tons of resizer programs, but sooner or later she does need some kind of graphics program. For example, if she wants to cut off a few inches of empty sky or lawn, a resizer won`t help. Or for adding smart-ass captions, or for lightening, darkening, sharpening, etc. Even the simplest free graphics programs do that. Nowadays even MS-PAINT, long derided as an impotent piece of loon shit, can do that, and it is still included free with Windows. Unless you do graphics for 64 foot freeway billboards, you don`t need GIMP. However, even GIMP is still free. All you need is a basic and simple graphics program. Have FUN! DearWebby And From: Doug Re: PixResizer Dear Webby, For resizing pictures, PixResizer is absolutely the best I've found. You can resize one picture or groups of pictures with the click of the mouse. It's simple and easy. It's quick. And it's FREE!! Check it out at: I think you may just take a liking to it as I did. I used to use PaintShop or ThumbsPlus but no more. My resizing is all PixResizer. Especially since getting my new digital camera which take 5+ megapixex photos, I use it all the time because I wouldn't think of putting a picture of that size on a web page! I may link to the full sized photo. Thanks for you wisdom and humor each day. Doug

Robert and Peter had applied for jobs at a large company and had to take an intelligence test. Though both of them found the test a breeze, except that they admitted to being momentarily stumped by the final question: "Name a 14 letter word for someone in charge of a plant." "How did you answer that last one?" asked Robert. "I thought it was tough at first.... then I thought of Superintendent." "I think I got it right too," Pete said. "But I wrote down Horticulturist."

Hallelujah Chorus from Quinhagak, Alaska
____________________________________________________ A general noticed one of his soldiers behaving oddly. The soldier would pick up any piece of paper he found, frown and say, "That's not it" and put it down again. This went on for some time, until the general arranged to have the soldier psychologically tested. The psychologist concluded that the soldier was deranged, and wrote out his discharge from the army. The soldier picked it up, smiled and said, "That's it." ___________________________________________________

One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Jim suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sunk to the bottom & stayed there. Mary promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled Jim out. When the medical director became aware of Mary's heroic act he immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as he now considered her to be mentally stable. When he went to tell Mary the news he said, "Mary, I have good news & bad news. The good news is you're being discharged because since you were able to jump in and save the life of another patient, I think you've regained your senses. The bad news is, Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself with his bathrobe belt in the bathroom. I am so sorry, but he's dead." Mary replied "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry."

Then she turned to me and said, "Does this look natural?" Well, the truth was that soap and water would have made her look a lot better than all that make-up.

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

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

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

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