Even the garbage language the kids use on their chats makes more sense. Elmar Dear Elmar The spammers know that we are using filters to get rid of their crap, and they are trying to sneak around those filters. Nobody with the smarts of a mashed potato buys from one of those spammers, but unfortunately there are enough idiots out there to make it profitable enough for the spammers to keep trying. Very few of the spam victims ever get what they paid for, but that does not seem to stop other bozos from believing spammers. Have FUN! DearWebby Nobody is perfect unless you are in love with them. Nobody is totally imperfect, unless you used to be in love with them.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Reuse Coffee Creamer Containers for Storage I dislike grocery shopping, particularly in the wintertime. I get a head start during the summer. I watch for sales on staples. The more I buy now, the less I'll have to lug home in the sleet and snow. I mix my own laundry concoction, and really like it. I use ½ of a popular laundry detergent and ½ of a non chlorine fabric whitener/brightener. Often these powders are lumpy when I first buy them, and even lumpier after being on the shelf for a while. I measure equal amounts of these two into a plastic bucket, stir for a second, and then funnel the lot into clean and dried coffee creamer containers. I keep these filled containers in the laundry room, and at the kitchen sink, where I wash my dish towels in scalding water. (Tip within a tip: I don't use fabric softener on my dish towels. It tends to leave a film on glassware). The lumps do not reform in these plastic containers. I can dispense a little through the pour spout or remove the lid to measure a cup or so. This idea may not be practical for large families, but for a small crew, it should work well. Also, I stock up on wild bird seed. I transfer the contents of a 10 lb. bag of seed into these containers. When refilling my several feeders, it's much easier dispensing from these containers, rather than a 10 lb. bag. With a home made inner seal of foil, the seed will stay fresh and bug free.

A man walks into an insurance office and asks for a job. "We don't need anyone" they replied. "You can't afford not to hire me. I can sell anyone anytime anything." "We have two prospects that no one has been able to sell. If you can sell just one, you have a job." He was gone about two hours and returned and handed them two checks, one for $25,000.00 and another for $50,000.00. "How in the world did you do that" they asked. "I told you I'm the worlds best salesman, I can sell anyone anywhere anytime." "Did you get a urine sample?" they asked him. "What's that?" he asked. "Well, if you sell a policy over $20,000.00 the company requires a urine sample. Take these two bottles and go back and get urine samples." He was gone about 8 hours and they were fixing to close when in he walks in with two five gallon buckets, one in each hand. He sets the buckets down and reaches in his shirt pocket and produces two bottles of urine and sets them on the desk and says "Here is Mr.Brown's and this one is Mr.Smith's." "That's good" they said, "but what's in those two buckets?" "Well, I passed by the school house and they were having a state teachers convention, so I stopped and sold them a group policy!"

"Sounds good," my wife said. "But I don't want the eggs." "Then I'll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents because you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her. "You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" my wife asked incredulously. "I'll take the special." "How do you want your eggs?" "Raw and in the shell," my wife replied.

The owner sat around, With sharpened knife and cedar stick Piled shavings on the ground. No modern facilities had they, The log across the rill Led to a shack, marked His and Hers That sat against the hill. "Where is the ladies restroom, sir?" The owner leaning back, Said not a word but whittled on, And nodded toward the shack. With quickened step she entered there But only stayed a minute Until she screamed, just like a snake Or spider might be in it. With startled look and beet red face She bounded through the door, And headed quickly for the car -- Just like three gals before. She missed the foot log -- jumped the stream, The owner gave a shout, As her pantyhose, down at her knees Caught on a sassafras sprout. She tripped and fell -- got up, and then in obvious disgust, Ran to the car, stepped on the gas, And faded in the dust. Of course we all desired to know What made the gals all do The things they did, and then we found The whittling owner knew. A speaking system he'd devised To make the thing complete, He tied a speaker on the wall Beneath the toilet seat. He'd wait until the gals got set, And then the devilish guy Would stop his whittling long enough To speak into the mike. And as she sat, a voice below Struck terror, fright and fear, "Will you please use the other hole? We're painting under here." ______________________________________________________ An out-of-work newlywed took a temporary job as a vacuum cleaner salesman to make ends meet.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jennifer Hillard 35, Alexandria, Minnesota Minnesota Woman On Meth Steals Squad Car After Arrest; 120 mph High-Speed Chase Follows A 35-year-old Alexandria woman is in jail after she allegedly stole a squad car and led police on a high-speed chase Sunday evening. Alexandria police say officers and fire crews were dispatched at 6:41 p.m. Sunday to a fire alarm with visible smoke at an apartment on the 500 block of Broadway Street. Upon arrival, officers saw a small fire burning on the living room floor and quickly put out the fire using an extinguisher. There initially didn’t appear to be anyone inside the residence, but officers discovered the tenant, identified as Jennifer Hillard, entered through the ceiling tiles and was hiding inside the ceiling. Police say Hillard then fell through the ceiling tiles and into an adjoining laundry room. She was found with a methamphetamine pipe and lighter in her possession. She was then placed under arrest, handcuffed with her hands behind her back, and placed in the back seat of a squad car. As authorities continued to deal with the scene, Hillard managed to free one of her hands from the handcuffs and squeezed her way through the back sliding window that may have not been secured, gaining access to the front section of the squad car. She then drove off with the Alexandria squad car. A short time later, an officer with Osakis police intercepted Hillard as she was entering Osakis and began to pursue. Before and during the pursuit, Hillard reached speeds of over 120 mph. The pursuit ended on Beltline Road near Sauk Centre when a Minnesota State Trooper deployed stop sticks. Hillard is in custody at the Dakota County Jail pending a court appearance for charges of arson, theft of a motor vehicle, fleeing a peace officer, driving while impaired, possessing a controlled substance, reckless driving and speeding. Police say there were no injuries and damage to property, with the exception of the Alexandria squad car. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Friz Re: Tripod substitute Dear Webby, I forgot my tripod at home, but I have to as usual make all the pictures at the family gathering. What's a quick and cheap fix? I absolutely need something to help me beacuse I know I am too jittery to take candle light shots by hand without the ugly flash. I do have a remote release. Friz Dear Friz No Panic. Just get a sturdy zip-lock plastic bag, fill it two thirds full with sugar or salt or flour. Place the camera onto the bag. Wiggle it a bit so it sits well. You can put that bag onto any piece of furniture, or even onto a stepladder. The camera will be rock-solid and the pictures even sharper than when you use your tripod. If there is a drinker in the family, then the chances a re good that you can locate one fo those pretty Crown Royal bottle bags. That makes a really classy camera pedestal. Have FUN! DearWebby In Northern Minnesota, the game warden stopped a man leaving a lake with two buckets of fish. The game warden asked the man, "Do you have a license to catch those fish?" The man said, "No, sir. These are my pet fish." "Pet fish?" the warden queried. "Yes, sir," the man explained. "Every night I take these fish down to the lake and let them swim around for a while. Then I whistle and they jump back into their buckets, and I take 'em home." The game warden glared at the man and said, "That's impossible. Fish can't do that!" The man looked at the game warden for a moment and said, "Here, I'll show you. It really works." The man poured the fish into the lake and waited. After several minutes, the game warden looked at the man and said, "Well?" "Well, what?" the man asked. "When are you going to call them back?" the game warden prompted. "Call who back?" the man asked. "The FISH!" And the man said, "What fish?"

Have you ever noticed that good jokes always come back to you ? This one came back via Kristine: While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered that a tall boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 40 years ago. Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was too old to have been my classmate. After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended the local high school. "Yes," he replied. "When did you graduate?" I asked. He answered, "In 1957." "Why, you were in my class!" I exclaimed. He looked at me closely and then asked, "What did you teach?"

____________________________________________________ So you want a day off. Let's take a look at what you are asking for: There are 365 days per year available for work. There are 52 weeks per year in which you already have 2 days off per week, leaving 261 days available for work. Since you spend 16 hours each day away from work, you have used up 170 days, leaving only 91 days available. You spend 30 minutes each day on coffee break, which counts for 23 days each year, leaving only 68 days available. With a 1 hour lunch each day, you used up another 46 days, leaving only 22 days available for work. You normally spend 2 days per year on sick leave. This leaves you only 20 days per year available for work. We are off 5 holidays per year, so your available working time is down to 15 days. We generously give 14 days vacation per year, which leaves only 1 day available for work and I'll be darned if you are going to take that day off! ____________________________________________________ While I was preaching in a church in Mississippi, the pastor announced that their prison quartet would be singing the following evening. I wasn't aware there was a prison in the vicinity and I looked forward to hearing them. The next evening, I was puzzled when four members of the church approached the stage. Then the pastor introduced them. "This is our prison quartet," he said, "behind a few bars and always looking for the key." ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dylan Broughmanm, Jacksonville, Floriduh Florida teen charged with murder of his grandmother The scene that greeted police officers Oct. 10 when they arrived at a domestic disturbance call in East Arlington’s Cobblestone neighborhood was one of mayhem, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office report. Joyce Ann Courson, 69, was sitting in a puddle of blood in the hallway, her right eye split open as fist- and foot-sized holes filled nearby walls in the home on Ashridge Drive, the report said. It all started with her hiding her grandson’s beer, she was able to tell police. Courson’s 18-year-old grandson has been charged with murder after she succumbed to her injuries a week after being slugged repeatedly, according to police. Dylan Nicholas Broughman had initially been charged with aggravated battery, but the murder charge was added Thursday after the Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death a homicide. Tracey Lynn Broughman, his mother, was briefly in tears Thursday morning after learning of the new charge as she stood in a home that bears the scars of the attack. Calling her mother “my best friend” who took care of them, she looked at holes kicked or punched in three walls near the kitchen and said she felt overwhelmed. “I am sick for the loss of my mother. I am sick for the loss of my son. I don’t feel he deserves to go to prison. I don’t feel in my heart that he meant to do this to the severity that he did,” Broughman said. The initial incident occurred just before 8 a.m. Oct. 10, according to the arrest report. Broughman was in the shower when Courson confiscated his beer. Her grandson became enraged when he couldn’t find his beer and began yelling, “It’s all your fault, everything is your fault!” she told police. From her hospital bed, Courson told them her grandson caved in chunks of the walls in her house and shoved her to the floor as he followed her into a hallway, the report said. That’s when he held her down and punched her in the face with his fist over and over again, then started kicking her. Dillon Ross, a 22-year-old roommate, said he had just gone to bed after his night job when he heard the argument, then some banging. He said the grandmother and grandson sometimes argued in the mornings, so he stayed out of it at first. “She took the beer and he just flipped out and I guess she wouldn’t tell him where she put it, so he started punching holes in the wall, then destroying the house pretty much and then blaming her,” Ross said. “I didn’t think anything of it until I heard this ridiculous crash. That’s when it was like this turned into something crazy.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Recipe: Sausage and Cabbage Stir-Fry By Sandy [135 Posts] Ingredients: 1 cup noodles uncooked 3/4 lb Polish sausage sliced 8 cups cabbage coarsely chopped 1 small onion 1 apple grated 1/2 tsp. caraway seed 1 Tbsp. brown sugar 2 Tbsp. cider vinegar 1/2 tsp. salt Directions: Cook noodles, drain and set aside. Cook sausage until brown. Remove from skillet. Add to the skillet the cabbage, onion, apple, caraway seed cooking until the cabbage is tender, about 7-10 minutes. Add brown sugar, vinegar and salt. Cover and cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Add sausage and noodles cooking until everything is hot. Source: friend By Sandy from Graettinger, IA Smoked farmer sausage works fine too, more taste, less fat. I save time by cubing an apple or two, half of a sugar cube size. Makes interesting tasty tidbits. Without the noodles, it makes a great veggie side dish. Have FUN! DearWebby

Their answers apparently have not been retouched or corrected. 1. In the first book of the bible, Guinessis, God got tired of creating the world, so he took the Sabbath off. 2. Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. Noah's wife was called Joan of Ark. Noah built an ark, which the animals come on it in pears. 3. Lot's wife was a pillar of salt by day, but a ball of fire by night. 4. The Jews were a proud people and throughout history they had trouble with the unsympathetic Genitals. 5. Samson was a strongman who let himself be led astray by a Jezebel like Delilah. 6. Samson slayed the Philistines with the axe of the Apostles. 7. Moses led the Hebrews to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread which is bread without any ingredients. 8. The Egyptians were all drowned in the dessert. Afterwards, Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten amendments. 9. The first commandment was when Eve told Adam to eat the apple. 10. The seventh commandment is thou shalt not admit adultery. 11. Moses died before he ever reached Canada. Then Joshua led the Hebrews in the battle of Geritol. 12. The greatest miracle in the Bible is when Joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed him. 13. David was a Hebrew king skilled at playing the liar. He fought the Finklesteins, a race of people who lived in Biblical times. 14. Solomon, one of David's sons, slept with 300 wives and 700 porcupines. 15. When Mary heard that she was the mother of Jesus, she sang the Magna Carta. 16. When the three wise guys from the east side arrived, they found Jesus with the manager. 17. Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate contraption. 18. St. John the blacksmith dumped water on his head. 19. Jesus enunciated the Golden Rule, which says to do one to others before they do one to you. He also explained, a man doth not live by sweat alone. 20. It was a miracle when Jesus rose from the dead and managed to get the tombstone off the entrance. 21. The people who followed the lord were called the 12 debacles. 22. The epistles were the wives of the apostles. 23. One of the oppossums was St. Matthew who was also a taximan. 24. St. Paul cavorted to Christianity.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Erne Jean Delva, 32, Princeton, Floriduh Floriduh Highway Patrol stop reveals warrant for cocaine dealing charges A traffic stop resulting in a minor pot bust snowballed for a Princeton man and landed him in county jail on felony cocaine dealing charges after the Florida Highway Patrol trooper who pulled him over discovered two outstanding bench warrants for the man’s arrest. The FHP trooper pulled over Erne Jean Delva, 32, in his “dark-colored sedan” driving southbound on U.S. 1 at mile marker 92, according to the trooper’s Nov. 2 incident report. The trooper wrote that he pulled the car over because it “hit the outside line” of the highway several times. When the trooper walked up to the driver’s side window, he “smelled a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from within the vehicle.” When asked by the trooper if there was pot in the car, Delva replied that the car wasn’t his and he didn’t know what was in it. “During the search of the vehicle, I found a clear bag containing a green leafy substance inside a tobacco resealable pouch in the center console,” the trooper wrote. “Mr. Delva was placed under arrest for possession of marijuana.” The trooper conducted a computer search of Delva’s records, which revealed he had a bench warrant for sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school and use of a two-way device to facilitate a felony. In addition to the cocaine charges, Delva was also booked on misdemeanor marijuana possession. He’s being held on a total bond of $106,000. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Mia Re: Yahoo Lists Dear Webby, I am subscribed to a few lists on Yahoo, and lately one after the other seemed to have been taken over by some hacker that sent out a message about a proxy-relay trojan and a password to use for getting information about getting back on. The mails had the usual Yahoo Groups sponsor ads on top, something I doubt that a hacker would leave in place, but the grammar in the message was definitely low class, which would point to a hacker. Below the weird message, there were the usual dozen ads abd links that normally are on those newsletters. Naturally I did not click on anything. I am worried though. Since these lists are in no way connected to each other, except that they are all ad suported freebie lists on Yahoo, does that mean Yahoo has been hacked ? How does that affect my Yahoo mail? If they can hack into the lists, can they get to my mail? Mia Yes, if a bunch of different lists were affected, then that would indeed indicate hacker activity. Yahoo mail may be a bit more reliable than hotmail, but it is not really something that anybody should consider as secure. It's mainly a toy for people, who want to disguise themselves. Just becasue Hillary and Huma used it, that does not mean it is secure. That is why their mails are all over the Internet. Your only defense there is toONLY use Yahoo mail for those lists, and never link to your proper email or anything, that might benefit a hacker. Just get an email address based on your ISP, or a Gmail address for your proper email. Have FUN! DearWebby Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year and every year Morris would say, "Esther, I'd like to ride in that airplane." Esther always replied, "I know Morris, but that airplane ride costs 50 dollars, and ya know, 50 dollars is 50 dollars." One year Morris and Esther went to the fair and Morris said, "Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that airplane I might never get another chance." Esther replied, "Morris, that airplane ride costs 50 dollars, and ya know, 50 dollars is 50 dollars." The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take you both up for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won't charge you; but if you say one word it's 50 dollars." Morris and Esther agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word was heard. He did all his tricks over again, but still not a word. When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris and said, "By golly,I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn't." Morris replied, "Well, I was gonna say something when Esther fell out, but ya know, 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

Many thanks Rikka Dear Rikka, it's a bit long, but here it is: The Letter from Gramma: The other day I went up to a local Christian bookstore and saw a "honk if you love Jesus" bumper sticker. I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting, so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper. I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good He is and I didn't notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed! I found that LOTS of people love Jesus! Why, while I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, "For the love of GOD! GO! GO! Jesus Christ, GO!" What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone started honking! I just leaned out of my window and started waving and smiling at all these loving people. I even honked my own horn a few times to share in the love! There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a "sunny beach"... I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. I asked my teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant. He said that it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something. Well, I've never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign back. My grandson burst out laughing...why, even he was enjoying this religious experience! A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed. So, I waved to all my sisters and brothers, grinning of course, and drove on through the intersection. I noticed I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and I felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared, so I slowed the car down, leaned out of the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks! Grandma ____________________________________________________

How much do those cost? Lorne If you have to ask how much they cost, then a dye sublimation printer is not the printer for you. The individual dots produced are better, but the prints are fuzzy, compared to a laser printer. The prints look about the same as old style chemical process photos. Laser and even inkjet printers produce sharper images. Dye printers are usually just special purpose printers for ID badges, drivers licenses, textile, and so on. They are made to print specific media in a specific size, like drivers licenses. You can get them in sizes to print heat transfer pages for t-shirts or cups. Some even print directly onto plastic cups. The dye ribbons are very expensive compared to laser toner. Unless you have a very specific need like ID cards or T- shirts, you are better off getting a decent laser printer. Have FUN! DearWebby A group of Americans was touring Ireland. One of the women in the group was a real curmudgeon, constantly complaining. The bus seats are uncomfortable. The food is terrible. It´s too hot. It´s too cold. The accommodations are awful. The group arrived at the site of the famous Blarney Stone. "Good luck will be followin´ ya all your days if you kiss the Blarney Stone,"the guide said. "Unfortunately, it´s being cleaned today and so no one will be able to kiss it. Perhaps we can come back tomorrow." "We can´t be here tomorrow," the nasty woman shouted. "We have some other boring tour to go on. So I guess we can´t kiss the stupid stone." "Well now," the guide said, "it is said that if you kiss someone who has kissed the stone, you´ll have the same good fortune." "And I suppose you´ve kissed the stone," the woman scoffed. "No, ma´am," the frustrated guide said, "but I´ve sat on it."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Crescent Pizza Rolls By tiffanytallent1981 [15 Posts, 11 Comments] I think it is safe to bet that almost everyone loves pizza! And if you are looking for a great tasting variation, these rolls are the perfect choice. They make fabulous appetizers for events, parties, and reunions. I actually prepare one package and split them between dinner one night, and lunch the next day. They are just as good reheated in the microwave, so nothing has to be wasted if there are leftovers. Prep Time: 10 Cook Time: 10-12 minutes Total Time: 20-25 minutes Yield: 8 Source: Pinterest Ingredients: 1 pkg. crescent rolls 24 pieces pepperoni 4 mozzarella string cheese sticks Marinara, ranch, or other dipping sauce 1 sprinkle garlic powder 1/8 cup grated Parmesan cheese cooking spray (for some pans) Steps: Cut string cheese sticks in half. Lay out the crescent roll triangles. Add 3-4 slices of pepperoni to each triangle, slightly overlapping. Place them along the base of the triangle, going toward the middle. Add a cheese stick half on top of each set of pepperoni. Preheat oven to 350-375 degrees F. You will bake them at the temperature given in the crescent roll directions. Every oven is different and mine works better at 350 F. Use cooking spray if you feel it is needed. I actually did not have any with this current batch. The rolls still practically slid off of my pan! Fold the crescent corners around the pepperonis and cheese sticks, leaving no holes. If you have any holes, the cheese will melt out and burn on the pan. Sprinkle garlic powder on top of the rolls. Place in the oven for 5-8 minutes. The darker you want the bottoms of the rolls, the longer you leave them in the oven. Take them out and flip each roll over. Place back in the oven for 4-6 minutes. The time depends on how dark you want them. I try to leave mine for 6 minutes the first time and 3-4 minutes after they have been flipped. Take them out of the oven and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce. Don't forget the Pizza Sauce! I prefer smearing pizza sauce on first, then pepperoni or salami or ham, a paper-thin slice of onion, a very light sprinkle of garlic salt, Oregano and Cilantro (Italian Parley), then a thin slice of Mozarella. Works OK rolled up or left flat for a square pizza. Whichever way you do it, don't forget the Pizza Sauce! DearWebby

____________________________________________________ A guy walks into a bar and approaches the barman, "Can I have a pint of Less, please?" "I'm sorry sir," the barman replies, looking slightly puzzled, "I've not come across that one before. Is it a spirit?" "I've no idea," replies the guy, "The thing is, I went to see my doctor today and he told me that I should drink 'Less'." ---------- hmmm Might be profitable to print some bottle or can labels for a beer called LESS and stick them onto the cheapest beer you can buy, and sell your LESS beer at a decent mark-up. A lot of people will buy it just as conversation pieces. ____________________________________________________ A minister decided to do something a little different one Sunday morning. He said, "Today, in church, I am going to say a single word and you are going to help me preach. Whatever single word I say, I want you to sing whatever hymn that comes to your mind. The pastor shouted out "CROSS". Immediately the congregation started singing in unison, 'THE OLD RUGGED CROSS." The pastor hollered out "GRACE." The congregation began to sing "AMAZING GRACE, how sweet the sound." The pastor said "POWER." The congregation sang "THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD." The pastor said "SEX." The congregation fell in total silence. Everyone was in shock. They all nervously began to look around at each other, afraid to say anything. Then all of a sudden, from way in the back of the church, a little 87 year old grandmother stood up and began to sing "PRECIOUS MEMORIES." ____________________________________________________

A lot of beer later, when they got kicked out of the curling club, the Newfie wants to go ice fishing right then and there. It's about as foggy outside as it is in his head, after all those beers, but his keen eyes spot some ice not far away. Proudly carrying his nice, shiny, red auger, he stumbles in that direction and decides that he'll give it a go. He carefully takes the safety cover off the point. You may think thasch easchy, but if you hol yourschelf upright with the schilly Ische auger, every time you pull the plaschtik thingamagig off the bottom point, you fffall down! Musch easier if you doing while lying down. Finally he starts drilling. Suddenly, a loud voice booms out at him, "There's no fish in here." The Newfie looks all around him in the fog, but can't see anyone. He decides to ignore the voice and carries on drilling. Again, the voice booms out, "I've told you, there's no fish in here!" He looks up again but there's still no sign of anyone so he returns to his task. "Stop it!" shouts the now very angry sounding voice, "You'd better pack up your stuff and get out of here or there'll be trouble." "Who are you" shouts the drunk guy, "you don't scare me!"

On their anniversary night, the husband sat his wife sat down in the den with her favourite magazine, turned on the soft reading lamp, slipped off her shoes, patted and propped her feet and announced that he was preparing dinner all by himself. "How romantic!" she thought. Two-and-a-half hours later, she was still waiting for dinner to be served. She tiptoed to the kitchen and found it a colossal mess. Her harried husband, removing something indescribable from the smoking oven, saw her in the doorway. "Almost ready!" he vowed. "Sorry it took me so long -- I had to refill the pepper shaker." "Why, honey, how long could that have taken you?" "More'n an hour, I reckon. Wasn't easy stuffin' it through those dumb little holes."

The receptionist became irritated and said, "You shouldn't come into a crowded office and say things like that." "Why not? You asked me what was wrong and I told you," he said. The receptionist replied, "You've obviously caused some embarrassment in this room full of people. You should have said there is something wrong with your ear or something and then discussed the problem further with the doctor in private."

You can run it in Google, though. Just google for powercalc It is a bit klutzy and you can't scroll back and edit, but it can do more than the built in calc.

There you can scroll back, edit, type comments, have different layers, for example for different months, and call numbers like totals from those months onto a cover sheet. When you edit any sheet, the totals on the cover sheet automatically update. Sounds intimidating? It's not. You'll kick yourself for not having started playing with spreadsheets a long time ago.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cinnamon to Deter Ants By Jess [163 Posts, 843 Comments] I tried this in my kitchen recently because the sugar ants were starting to show up on my countertops. I scattered cinnamon behind my sink, which is where they seem to get into the house. I haven't seen an ant in days! I even left a box of donuts on the counter and they have been left entirely alone. Seems much safer than using ant poison or boric acid in my kitchen.

"Look around," said the sales lady, as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, color and material imaginable. "Actually, even with all of this variety, there are really only four of bras to choose from." Relieved, the man asked about the types. The sales lady replied "There are Catholic, the Salvation Army, the Presbyterian, and the Baptist types. Which one would you prefer?" Now totally befuddled, the man asked about the differences between them. The Sales lady responded, "It is all really quite simple... The Catholic type supports the masses. The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen, The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright, and The Baptist type makes mountains out of mole hills." ____________________________________________________ (Q) What' s the difference between a southern zoo and a northern zoo?

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Stephen Daniel Stump, 36, Key West, Floriduh Homeless man returns to the bank he robbed after getting a drink An unarmed homeless man robbed a Key West bank Tuesday only to return when he heard the police sirens and immediately surrender, a city spokeswoman said. Stephen Daniel Stump, 36, was arrested on felony charges of robbery and falsely reporting an explosive device after police said he walked into the Centennial Bank branch at 701 Whitehead St. at about 12:30 p.m. demanding money and lying that he had a bomb in his backpack. Stump left with an undisclosed amount of cash and headed over to a Duval Street restaurant, Mangoes, and ordered a drink from the bar. “He paid with a $50 bill from the robbery, telling the bartender to keep the change,” said city spokeswoman Alyson Crean. “When he heard sirens, he apparently returned to the bank and was apprehended. All of the money was recovered.” Stump, whose ID card gave his home address as Key West’s homeless shelter, was arrested without incident and the bank building and his backpack were deemed safe by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office bomb squad. Crean said she cannot legally release how much money was stolen. She said while police were interviewing witnesses, one bank employee looked out a window and spotted Stump standing right outside. Stump walked up, put down his backpack and waited to be arrested, Crean said. The robbery shut down part of Whitehead Street for about a half-hour Tuesday while police worked the scene. He will be getting free room and board all winter at the jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Dave Re: BleachBit versus CrapCleaner Dear Webby, Hope all is well with you and yours. In the news we hear about BleachBit how does it compare to CrapCleaner? Dave Dear Dave CrapCleaner has been around for a long time and has been steadily improved all along. It is still free, just supported by voluntary donations. BleachBit got a lot of publicity because Hillary Clinton ordered her IT staff to clean her servers and her machines and those of Abedin, her assistant, with BleachBit, after they got almost a week's notice, that the FBI wanted to look at them. Like CrapCleaner and all utilities since X-Tree and Norton Commander in good old DOS, BleachBit too has a shredder included. Most techies prefer CrapCleaner because it has more professional tools included, but the shredder is very basic and included in all utilities. I don't remember if Hillary's server was Windows or Linux. On Linux servers you have "wipe", "srm" the Secure Remove, "shred", and a few other ones. If you have CrapCleaner, stick with it. Have FUN! DearWebby Taking his seat in his chambers, the judge faced the opposing lawyers. "So," he said, "I have been presented, by both of you, with a bribe." Both lawyers squirmed uncomfortably. "You, attorney Morris, gave me $15,000. And you, attorney Campos, gave me $10,000. In all honesty I cannot unfairly accept two bribes." The judge reached into his pocket and pulled out a check. He handed it to Morris saying, "Now then, I'm returning $5,000, and we're going to decide this case solely on its merits!"

This guy went to see a highly recommend psychiatrist. The doctor showed the man an inkblot and asked, "What does this remind you of?" The guy replied, "A naked woman." Then the shrink showed the man another inkblot and asked the guy the same question. The guy responded, "A naked woman on a bed." This went on and on, inkblot after inkblot.

"That's right" said the bartender, "thirty beers at ten cent's apiece, that's $3.00." The men were amazed that the beer was so cheap, but the bartender went on to explain, "You see," he said, "I won the lottery and I wanted to open a bar where folks could come and drink for a reasonable price and have fun. So I use my lottery winnings to subsidize the cost, that's why drinks are so cheap." The men nodded, but one of them asked the bartender, "Those two guys over there, they've been here for two hours and they haven't had anything to drink, what's going on?"

A corrections officer detected the illegal drugs while checking incoming mail. When he asked the inmate about them, the man said that he only got mail from two people – his mother and the mother of his child. He added that the mother of his child, Jacklyn Suzanne Stacey, a known and previously arrested meth-head, has been trying to get him in trouble to get custody of their child. Stacey’s age and address are not listed on her Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report. The reason given is that she is a former law enforcement official or the spouse or child of a law enforcement officer. The info is on the web because of her prior arrests. When deputies interviewed Stacey, she admitted attaching the orange strips to the envelope and mailing them to the inmate. She said he’d requested that she do it, according to her arrest report. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From John Re: VCR to DVD problems Dear Webby, Sorry for taking up so much of your time, but Im in a bind again. There are three parts to my problem. 1.. A couple of years ago I purchased a DVD Video recorder/Video cassette recorder. (TOSHIBA) model DVR630KCn to convert my VHS tapes to disc / It took me a while to get it figured out , . I am copying thirty min programs on each disc, with up to 4 blocks on each disc ,This is fine , but they wont play back on any other machine, eg.my computer, with windows seven. I have fromated each disc before I start and finalized it after, Any Suggestions . 2. My daughter is having the same problem, , only she is using one of them converters that she plugs into an VCR and into her hard drive. 3. where is the best place to buy DVD-RWS by the gross. with no shirts. Thank for you help, Have fun 4 Am I using the proper discs??????? John B Dear John I asked Jerome from http://nacards.net, the real expert in these matters: His reply was First a quick answer for John. You can only use DVD-R’s for use of video. You stated that you formatted each one which tells me you are using DVD-RW’s Your DVD recorder does a good job of recording. To play on a newer DVD player that accepts avi, wav, or mp4 formats, you can directly copy those to the disk. Jerome Have FUN! DearWebby Thanks to Flo for this one: Soon after our last child left home for college, my husband was resting next to me on the couch with his head in my lap. I carefully removed his glasses. "You know, honey," I said sweetly, "Without your glasses you look like the same handsome young man I married." "Honey," he replied with a grin, "Without my glasses, you still look pretty good too!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Earning Money Online By Suntydt [75 Posts, 877 Comments] 14 found this helpful I saw the "Auctions for Income" infomercial the other night. It looked interesting, but I am always skeptical about infomercials. I did a quick search via Google and the majority of the sites that popped up on the first page of results basically yelled "SCAM!" in just as many words. As mentioned there is a way to make money via eBay, but you need a product people want that everyone else isn't selling. My advise to anyone interested in doing something like this is to consider items that can be used on multiple sites. For example, I go to yard sales, flea markets, Goodwill, and pawn shops and buy DVDs. Usually the more I buy, the cheaper I can get the product. I verify every disc is in like new condition before I make my offer. I list my items first on Amazon. Items that either don't have a listing or are selling for pennies on Amazon, I try to list on another site. On this other site, you trade DVDs (you pay for shipping when someone asks for one of your DVDs). As you mail DVDs you get to request DVDs. About once a week I go through the recently posted DVDs and see if any are going for big bucks on Amazon. If they are I request them and when they show up I list them on Amazon. For the DVDs that I can't put on Amazon or aren't listable on the trading site, I post them on eBay. If they sell, great. If they don't, I can always have my own yard sale when the summer comes back around. It takes a bit of organization and attention to detail, but it works. For example, last month I was at a pawn shop in a town I only get to on occasion. I stopped there as an after thought. They were packed with DVDs. I bought 180 DVDs at .70 cents each - roughly $125. In the first week I sold 10 and made $73, more than half of what I paid. You won't be a millionaire anytime soon, but it will keep you busy and you make some money. The added benefit is if this is something you enjoy - I love it :) And just as another note for success: when I start listing DVDs on Amazon, I double check their condition. I only post DVDs in "Like New or Very Good" condition (usually I only post "Very Good" DVDs when there are few of them for sale and they appear hard to get). I also check the DVDs when I have an order and pack them for shipment. Reputation I believe is vey important to many people who shop online, and my profile only brags about the quality of what I sell (selling more in the long run). And when I slip the paper of the order in the package I always include a note: I thank them for the order and I ask them to go back to Amazon and leave feedback. If this sounds like something you are interested in you can do the same thing with paperback books and CDs. I am sure there are other things as well, but I'm having fun with what I am doing so I haven't looked for anything else Second note to success: the lowest price I sell something covers my costs and makes me a dollar. Costs include the packing materials, postage, and the gas to get to and from the post office. So these three things plus one dollar is my minimum price for a product. That's just good business. Have fun, meet people and make some money. Or as they say in the races "Ready, Set, GO!" By suntydt from Tazewell, TN

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Julian Archuleta, 48, Denver, Colorado Denver Cop Charged With Theft Thanks to Own Body Camera A Denver cop who claimed $1,200 "must have fallen into his bag" at the scene of a car crash was arrested and suspended without pay after footage from his own body camera told a different story. The footage showed Julian Archuleta, a 48- year-old who has been on the force since 2004, responding to a report of shots being fired earlier this month, reports the Denver Post. When the suspects rolled over their car after a short chase, one fled the scene while the other was unconscious in the vehicle. Archuleta's body camera captured him removing money from the suspect's clothing after it had been cut away by paramedics. In the footage, Archuleta could be seen reshuffling the money and removing a $100 bill from a stack of bills, 9News reports. He was contacted by Internal Affairs after a detective reviewed the footage and noticed that there had been no $100 bills recovered from the scene. Archuleta told them he would "check his war bag" and later claimed to have discovered 12 $100 bills that "must have fallen" in there. He faces a felony charge of tampering with physical evidence and misdemeanor charges of first-degree official misconduct and theft. Police say that because of his actions, the shooting investigation was blown and the suspect was never charged. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Rosa Re: Search engine Optimizing Dear Webby, My dad's consultant told me that all these Search Engine Optimizers are just con artists who can't make a living with their own web sites, so they are spamming and trying to con money out of people who make money on the web. However, some of those SEOs sound very convincing. I notice that your Mypostcards.com has been at the top of Google for many years and you don't buy ad words and you don't even use meta tags. What's the real scoop? Rosa Dear Rosa Your dad's consultant is very wise. You have to understand that the search engines are not in business to please a bunch of tricksters, but to deliver the content that people are looking for. When you are looking for flower seeds, you want to be shown companies that sell flower seeds, not a bunch of flakey casinos or dating sites. Becaue the search engines are trying hard to deliver the searched for content, they work very hard to defeat the tricksters and keep changing the rules to stay ahead of cheaters. People who spend big money on ad words will often temporarily rise to the top, but usually just very briefly. Don't worry about them. Just focus on having the content that you promise, and you'll stick around near the top. Have FUN!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Making Dumplings Best Answer: By Cindy [7 Posts, 160 Comments] I don't make mine in the oven, but here's how I do it. Boil a big pot of water. While the water is heating, crack 6 eggs in a bowl. Add a little salt and a little water and whisk them together. Add about 3 cups of flour or more until the batter clings to a spoon. Using the spoon, drop spoonfulls of batter into the boiling water. After you've dropped them all, stir it and let it boil (you may have to turn down the heat so it doesn't boil over). When they are all floating, they are done. It only takes a few minutes. Then drain and add butter, salt or whatever you want. Hope this helps.

Dope dealer in road rage incident hid pot in his butt, dope and gun in car. The FHP arrested a driver and his passenger in a road rage incident for throwing bottles at another vehicle on I-4. Late Wednesday night, dispatchers received a call from a driver who reported people inside another vehicle were throwing objects at her while both traveling westbound on I-4 in Polk County. The incident began in Lakeland near mile marker 33 and continued for another 11 miles to Plant City. The female driver told dispatchers she heard a gun shot after glass bottles were thrown at her car. Officers with Lakeland Police conducted a traffic stop of the suspect vehicle at mile marker 22 on I-4. According to the arrest affidavit, officers found a bag of Ecstasy shoved under the driver's seat and a loaded semi- automatic gun under the cushion of the rear right seat. Police also found a bag of marijuana hidden inside the driver's butt. Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Jason Guaba arrived on scene and spoke to the alleged victims. He then interviewed the driver and two passengers inside the suspect vehicle. There was also an infant in the vehicle at the time of the incident. After concluding his investigation Trooper Guaba arrested the driver, 23-year-old Nabil Subhai Hasan, and one of his passengers, 23-year-old Derrick Alan Innocent.

A lady about eight months pregnant got on a bus. She noticed a man sitting opposite her was smiling. She immediately moved to another seat. This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again. The man seemed even more amused. When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing, she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested. The case came up in court. The judge asked the man (about20) what he had to say for himself. The man replied," Well, you're Honor, it was like this. When the woman got on the bus, I couldn't help but notice her condition. She sat under a sign that said, 'The Double Mint Twins are coming' and I smiled. Then she moved and sat under a sign that said, ' Slogan's Liniment will reduce the swelling' and I had to grin. Then she moved under a sign that said, ' William's Big Stick did the trick' and I could hardly contain myself.

Suddenly, from the rear of the plane, a man in a U.S. Marine Corps uniform is seen slowly walking forward up the aisle. Stopping the flustered mother with an upraised hand, the courtly, soft-spoken Marine leans down and, motioning toward his chest, whispers something into the boy's ear.

As the Marine slowly makes his way back to his seat, one of the cabin attendants touches his sleeve. "Excuse me, sir," she ask quietly, "but could I ask you what magic words you used on that little boy?"

When Officer Sartell asked her why she was not dressed, the woman told him she was “taking a Snapchat photo to send to her boyfriend while she was at a red light.” Rader was charged with DWI with an open container and was also issued a citation for minor in possession of alcohol. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Marsha Re: Mysterious mail bounces Dear Webby, Ross, my oldest and blondest brother, thinks he is so smart that he can improve on the way I set the mail up for him. Right now, he told me on the phone, he can mail out to anybody, but if he tries to reply or forward, he gets bounces. What did he do now ? And what do you recommend? Thanks Marsha Dear Marsha Most likely he has his mail set to "Send a copy to self" for forwards and replies. And because he doesn't read his own copies of the replies and forwards anyway, he has himself blocked with some spam control program. He should either take the checkmark off "Send a copy to self", or else stop blocking mail from himself. Have FUN! DearWebby During the weeks before Jill's wedding, she was terribly anxious about making some mistakes at the ceremony. The minister reassured her several times, pointing out that the service was not difficult and she will do just fine. "All you have to remember," he said, "is that when you enter the church you walk up the AISLE. The groom and best man will be waiting before the ALTAR. Then I shall request the congregation to sing a HYMN ....then we shall get on with the ceremony. All you have to remember is the order in which those things happen and you can't go wrong." The happy day finally arrived, and the bridegroom waited nervously for his bride to appear. When she arrived and stood alongside him, he heard her quietly repeating to herself, "Aisle, altar, hymn, aisle, altar, hymn." Or, as it sounded to him, "I'll alter him!" ------------------ For people for whom English is a second language, the word "alter" is normally used with animals, for example a bull is sometimes "altered" and made into an ox, by cutting off his family jewels.

A young man goes to a girl's house to pick her up for their first date. She shows him into the living room, then excuses herself to go to the kitchen to make them coffee. Looking around the room, the fellow notices a little vase on the mantel. He picks it up to examine it, and as he is looking at it, she walks back in. "What's this?" he asks her. "Oh," she says, "my father's ashes are in there." The young man turns beet red and is speechless as he gently sets the vase back on the mantle. "Yeah," the girl says, "he's too lazy to go to the kitchen to get an ashtray."

You've always known how to have FUN, haven't you! In 1970, I was 25, divorced and working at one of the computer parts plants in town, Chip-Tronics. It was someone's birthday & I'd bought her a pretty umbrella. I remember telling everyone what a terrible time I had, gift-wrapping it. I went into such detail about all of the wrapping paper I'd torn & had to discard. It went on for 10 minutes, probably.....turning into quite a comedy routine. The 'Seinfeld' writers could have developed a half hour show with the material that I related! I ended my story with the revelation I'd had.....that perhaps if I'd close the umbrella, it might be easier to wrap! ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Maria Caya, 53, Janesville, Wisconsin Wisconsin teacher passed out drunk on 4th grade field trip getting 'rewarded' with a massive payday In 2013, students at a Janesville, Wisconsin, elementary school were gearing up for the last day of school. In honor of the quickly-approaching summer vacation, the school's fourth and fifth graders went on a field trip to the local bowling alley. Fourth grade teacher Maria Caya was slated to be one of the field trip's chaperones. No one would imagine Caya would show up drunk and proceed to pass out in the bowling alley bathroom. Found in the bathroom by another faculty member, Caya was rushed to the hospital where she drew a blood alcohol level of .27 — three times the legal driving limit for the state of Wisconsin: In light of the incident, Caya was asked to resign from her job and was paid $18,000 by the school district to do so. According to the school district, firing Caya would have resulted in legal costs exceeding that payout. In the wake of the ordeal, Janesville police released Caya's blood alcohol levels, which prompted Caya to begin a massive $5.5 million lawsuit against the city. The former teacher claimed the department's decision to improperly release her blood alcohol levels caused her stress and public embarrassment. Despite Caya already receiving the $18,000 payout from the school, the City of Janesville agreed to pay her $75,000. According to NBC 15, the nearly six-figure payout was done so that the case wouldn't have to go to trial. With the news of Caya's win, parents have been left disgusted because they believe Caya endangered their children. To make matters even more complicated, it is unclear as to whether the police department broke any laws when it came to releasing Caya's alcohol levels. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Rick Re: Screaming computer Dear Webby, Dear Webby, I had left an old computer at the cabin, so that I could use it for downloading pictures from the camera and burning them onto a CD. Wen we got to the cabin and I turned on the computer, instead of the familiar fan noises there was the most godawful screaching and screaming, like a cat was inside it and slowly getting sliced into little pieces by the fans. I turned it off and took the side cover off, but all I saw in there, aside from the circuit boards and drives, were dust bunnies. What wold cause that awful noise? Rick Dear Rick When the frozen machine starts up, the thin film of grease in the fan bearings gets pushed along into micro dunes that look like miniature fish scales under the microcope. Just like any old grease, it retains the stickiness that is intended to keep it on the job, but it loses it's lubricating qualities and creaks like an old outhouse door. The high speed creaking is what you heard and thought was an animal screaming in pain. Naturally that does not prolong the usable lifetime of that fan. Some of the more modern computers and power supplies don't turn on the fans until there is actual need for cooling. On older equipment, you have to either put up with the screaming for a bit, or else wait until the cabin and the computer warm up. An alternative would be to just buy a larger capacity memory chip for the camera, or if it is from the XP era and has a 2 GB maximum, get a few extra chips. 2 Gb SD chips are getting rather scarce, so it might be a good idea to stock up on them. Have FUN! DearWebby Here's a little slice of golf history that you might enjoy. Why do golf courses have 18 holes - not 20, or 10, or an even dozen? During a discussion among the club's membership board at St. Andrews in 1858, a senior member pointed out that it takes exactly 18 shots to polish off a fifth of Scotch. By limiting himself to only one shot of Scotch per hole, the Scot figured a round of golf was finished when the Scotch ran out.

____________________________________________________ A widow recently married a widower. Soon after the marriage she was accosted by a friend who laughingly remarked - "I suppose, like all men who have been married before, your husband sometimes talks about his first wife?" "Oh, not any more, he doesn't," the other replied. "What stopped him?" "I started talking about my next husband." ____________________________________________________ This happened in England, where people always carry an umbrella, even on the odd days, when it doesn't rain. A man was in the habit of carrying an umbrella wherever he went. Unfortunately, he broke his last good one. Looking at the six useless umbrellas in his umbrella stand, he decided to take them all in and have them repaired. On the bus on the way home, he picked up the umbrella that belonged to the woman sitting next to him, purely out of habit. She immediately cried, "Stop, thief!" and he surrendered the umbrella. Very embarrassed, he quickly got off the bus. The next week he picked up his repaired umbrellas. When he got on the bus with the six umbrellas under his arm, he just so happened to sit next to the very same woman. She gave him an icy stare and said, "Had a good day, huh?" --------------- That reminds me of an umbrella experience I had in Vancouver in the 70's. It rains a lot in Vancouver, but I was new and was caught downtown in a real downpour. I ducked into the entranceway at Sears to escape the worst. While standing there I was idly reading the list of departments and the floors they were on. "Lost and Found Floor 12" caught my eye. So I went up there and asked if they had found my umbrella. "A black one ?" she asked. "Uh, yeah, a black one." I replied. "Telescoping or Gent?" "Uh, Gent." I figured, a hippie like me would naturally carry a gentleman's straight umbrella, not a weird one that might require readig instructions. The lady behind the counter groaned and left. A minute later she came back with a huge armload of black umbrellas. "Take your pick!" She didn't say anything about trying to find mine, just to take my pick. I did. The second one was perfect. No pinholes, smooth action, no rust specks, fine leather handle. Just as I was about to say something that it might be the right one, the lady told me: "Take a couple of spares. I got truckloads of them back there and hate carrying these back there again." I felt so sorry for her, I took the whole armload that she had dumped onto the counter. That made her smile ! Outside again, I gave a couple to the Hare Krishnas who were chanting in the rain and dancing like old drunks who had not noticed that the music had stopped. Then I spotted a mother with a baby carriage, so I ran after her and gave one to her and one to the kid. I had a great time, until I realized that I had given away ALL of the umbrellas. Back at Sears I told the lady at the Lost and Found the truth, and we had a good laugh about it. During the second armload the rain lessened and stopped and when the sun broke through the clouds, I was stuck with one umbrella. Since I felt silly carrying an umbrella when it didn't rain, I left it on the bus. ____________________________________________________

So... he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and persuaded him to say Mass for him that day. As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away. This way he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish. Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church! At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, "You're not going to let him get away with this, are you?" The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not." Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole. It WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE! St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why did you let him do that?" The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to brag to? ______________________________________________________ 2017 Launch Flash Sale MTP $29.99 ______________________________________________________ Once there lived a woman who had a maddening passion for baked beans. She loved them. Alas, they had always had a very embarrassing and somewhat lively reaction to her. Then one day she met a man and fell in love. When it became apparent that they would marry she thought to herself, "He is such a sweet and gentle man, he would never go for this carrying on." She made the supreme sacrifice and gave up beans. Some months later her car broke down on the way home from work. Since she lived in the country she called her husband and told him that she would be late because she had to walk home. On her way, she passed a small diner and the odor of the baked beans was more than she could stand. Since she still had miles to walk, she figured that she would walk off any ill effects by the time she reached home. So, she stopped at the diner and before she knew it, she had consumed three large orders of baked beans. She putt-putted all the way home, and upon arriving home she felt reasonably sure she could control it. Her husband seemed excited to see her and exclaimed delightedly,"Darling, I have a surprise for dinner tonight." He then blindfolded her and led her to her chair at the table. She seated herself and just as he was about to remove the blindfold from his wife, the telephone rang. He made her promise not to touch the blindfold until he returned. He then went to answer the telephone. The baked beans she had consumed were still affecting her and the pressure was becoming almost unbearable, so while her husband was out of the room she seized the opportunity, shifted her weight to one leg and let it go. It was not only loud, but it smelled like a fertilizer truck running over a skunk in front of pulpwood mill. She took her napkin and fanned the air around her vigorously. Then she shifted to the other cheek and ripped three more, which reminded her of cooked cabbage. Keeping her ears tuned to the conversation in the other room, she went on like this for another ten minutes. When the telephone farewells signaled the end of her freedom, she fanned the air a few more times with her napkin, placed it on her lap and folded her hands upon it, smiling contentedly to herself. She was the picture of innocence when her husband returned, apologizing for taking so long. He asked her if she had peeked, and she assured him that she had not. At this point, he removed the blindfold, and she was really surprised!! There were twelve rather green faced dinner guests seated around the table to wish her a "Happy Birthday"!!! ______________________________________________________ Fall in Washington, State From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Angela Sammons, 32, Maitland, Floriduh Drunken woman found with handcuffs, guns after wrong-way crash on I-4 A 32-year-old woman was arrested Saturday on DUI charges after she drove the wrong way on Interstate 4 in Maitland and crashed into a barrier, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. FHP said in an arrest report that it received about 13 calls to 911 about the driver, who was going west on I-4 East. Troopers said when they approached the crashed car, Angela Sammons got out of the sedan without shoes, and that when a trooper handed Sammons her shoes she put them on the wrong feet. The FHP report stated Sammons was stumbling and staggering on her feet, and did not know where she was or where she was driving to. Sammons was placed in the back of a patrol car, where she fell asleep, troopers said. FHP said when a trooper woke Sammons up and asked her if she was OK, she slurred her words and said she was tired and wanted to go home. Troopers said Sammons refused a field sobriety and Breathalyzer tests. Channel 9 found out that Sammons was an officer for the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco. The state said Sammons voluntarily left her position last year. Troopers said they found multiple Florida driver’s licenses in her purse, and loaded guns and handcuffs in her car. Sammons was booked into the Orange County Jail on charges of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, involving a vehicle crash, FHP said. Her bail was set at $500. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Janice Re: Color question Dear Webby, I have been told a few times that my sense of color is barbaric, with clothes too, but mostly with my web pages.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Ridding Your Kitchen of Fruit Flies By EllenB [805 Posts, 1 Comment] An Easy Fruit Fly Trap After removing all potential sources for feeding and breeding, use this trap to take care of any remaining adult flies. Fill one or more small jars with 1 inch of beer, wine, or Apple Cider Vinegar (not white vinegar). This fermenting liquid is your "bait". Place a plastic sandwich bag over the mouth of the jar, so that one corner reaches down into the jar just above the "bait" (you're creating a funnel). Poke a small, 1/8 inch hole in the corner of the bag with the tip of a pencil. Secure the bag around the rim of the jar with a rubber band. Place the jars around your kitchen or near your problem plants. Since you've already taken away their food supply and breeding grounds, the fruit flies will be searching for more. The "bait" will attract the fruit flies to the traps. They'll enter through the hole in the bottom of the funnel, and not be able to get out.

"All right," said the farmer. "I have a hired man. Been with me for three years. I pay him $600 a week, plus room and board. I have a cook. She's been here six months. She gets $500 a week plus room and board." "Anybody else?" asked the agent as he scribbled on a note pad. "Yeah," the farmer said. "There's a half-wit here. Works about eighteen hours a day.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kanasho Johns, 29, Kevin Deon Johnson, 26 Los Angeles, California 2 found guilty in murder of special needs teen over his red shoes Two men were found guilty on Monday of first-degree murder in the slaying of a special needs teen, who was gunned down in South Los Angeles allegedly over the color of his shoes. The victim, Price was described as standing under 5 feet tall and weighing less than 90 pounds. Jurors convicted Kanasho Johns, 29, and Kevin Deon Johnson, 26, for the 2015 killing of Tavin Price, described by family members as having special needs. Johns was also convicted of felony possession of a firearm. Prosecutors say Johns and Johnson were two neighborhood Crips members, and they targeted Price because of what he was wearing. Around 11 a.m. last May, Price and his mother, Jennifer Rivers, were at a car wash near the corner of Florence Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard. Price went into a nearby store, where he was approached by a man who asked Price to remove his shoes. Price then walked back to his mother at the car wash to tell her what the man said. Authorities said the man followed Price back to the car wash and opened fire. Rivers said she tried to run after the shooter but couldn't catch him. In court, Price was depicted as wearing a red T-shirt and red shoes at the time of the shooting. Rivers described her son as having a mental capacity of a 12- year-old, saying he was never affiliated with a gang in his life. Price was also described as standing under 5 feet tall and weighing less than 90 pounds. "This is a stereotypical innocent victim," said deputy district attorney Bobby Zoumberakis. "He's done nothing wrong. He had no criminal record. He had no gang involvement. I think the jury saw that and saw how important it was to get justice for him." A third man, 31-year-old Dwight Kevin Smith, has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in Price's death. He is set to be sentenced in October. Sentencing for Johns and Johnson is scheduled for Nov. 30. Rivers said she is relieved her sons' killers are heading to prison. "They have to sit there and feel every pain, everything that I feel," she said. "All I could hear every day is my son saying 'Mommy am I going to be alright? I'm not going to die, am I?'" ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Janet Re: Excel: make a Sunday line in a graph Dear Webby, I'm sure glad we got you! Nobody else knows your Excel tricks, and there is nothing in the Excel help about it. I got a graph, where I enter my blood sugar readings. I want the graph to show a line to indicate Sundays. How do I do that? Janet Dear Janet Lets say you choose vertical bars for the sugar readings, with the date below the bottom and the date numbers turned 90 degrees. You probably have a column for the date in your data part. Let's say that is column B and you have the date there increasing by one every row. Start with row 4 and leave the first 3 rows for headers. Don't worry about getting the date number. Just type in the date like 10/16/2016 into B4 If the maximum in the sugar reading lines is 20, then put this formula into the column, where you have Sundays: =IF(WEEKDAY(B4,1)=1,$B$2,0) That formula checks to see if the day code in B4 (using method 1, which is standard) =1 1 is the day code for Sunday, 2 is Monday, 3 is Tuesday, and so on. So, if it IS 1 (Sunday), then the formula uses whatever you have in B2. That number should be a bit bigger than the maximum expected sugar reading, for example 20. If the day code is NOT 1, then the number is 0 You COULD hardwire the 20 from B2 into the formula, but then, if you have to change that to a lower or higher number, you would have to change that in every line. This way you just change it in the look-up cell: B2 Clear enough? Have FUN! DearWebby >From Max The other day I needed to call home, but the only pay phone I could find was in use. So I stood to the side and politely waited until it was free, thinking it would only be a couple of minutes. Five minutes went by, and still the man was on the phone. He was just standing there, not saying a word. Another five minutes went by, and he still wasn't talking. Finally, I tapped him on the shoulder and asked if I could use the phone. I really wouldn't be long, but needed to make an important call. "Hold your horses," he responded, covering the receiver. "I'm talking to my wife."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Holiday Candle Holders By Donna [362 Posts, 373 Comments] This is a great looking and easy to make project for any holiday with a personalization of your stencil theme. Total Time: 1 hour Supplies: empty glass jar(s) with at least one smooth side self stick vinyl sheet (ask at any craft and many Dollar stores) scissors acrylic paint sponge brush(s) tea candle(s) string, twine, or rattan optional: corn kernels, beans, beads, or even pebbles for the bottom of the jar Steps: Draw or copy a shape onto the back of your sheet of vinyl. Cut it out, remove the backing and stick it directly onto your jar, smoothing out any bubbles. Paint your first coat of whatever color you choose onto your jar. It will be thin and streaky, that's OK you will let it dry a bit while making your second jar and come back for two or three coats more. Before the paint becomes totally dry peel off your cut out decal. If you wait until it drys it may pull off some paint and leave less clear edges. Once it is dry, tie some twine or rope along the top neck of the jar and add whatever seeds or beans into the bottom of the jar before adding your tea candle. They make a sweet centerpiece or decoration, don't you think? To avoid having the tea candles sitting at an angle like the right one in the picture, don't use beans or anything coarse for the ballast. Ballast is supposed to be heavy and even. Plaster of Paris with a tea candle pressed into it before it hardens makes a much safer ballast. However, unless you have cats who like knocking things over, you don't normally need a ballast. Gluing some of that sticky feeling drawer liner mesh onto the bottom (outside) is much safer. Also, unless you are a sadist who enjoys seeing people burn their fingers, include a few pieces of spaghetti. They work really well for lighting the candle, pilot lights and even BBQs. Have FUN!

Hey, since we're now living in the time of e-mail and the more common use of the written language, it is time for an English lesson. So, with tongue firmly in cheek, here are some rules to keep in mind: 1. Verbs has to agree with their subjects. 2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with. 3. And don't start a sentence with a conjunction. 4. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive. 5. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat). 6. Always avoid annoying alliteration. 7. Be more or less specific. 8. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary. 9. Also, too, never, ever use repetitive redundancies. 10. No sentence fragments. No comma splices, run-ons are bad too. 11. Contractions aren't helpful and shouldn't be used. 12. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos. 13. Do not be redundant; do not use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous. 14. One should never generalize. 15. Comparisons are as bad as cliches. 16. Don't use no double negatives. 17. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc. 18. One-word sentences? Eliminate. 19. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake. 20. The passive voice is to be ignored. 21. Eliminate commas, that are, not necessary. Parenthetical words however should be enclosed in commas. 22. Never use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice. 23. Kill all exclamation points!!!! 24. Use words correctly, irregardless of how others use them. 25. Understatement is probably not the best way to propose earth ahattering ideas. 26. Use the apostrophe in it's proper place and omit it when its not needed. 27. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know." 28. If you've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times: resist hyperbole; not one writer in a billion can use it correctly. 29. Puns are for children, not groan readers. 30. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms. 31. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed. 32. Who needs rhetorical questions? 33. Exaggeration is a million times worse than understatement. 34. Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

Rene Lopez, 41, was sentenced to the longest-known prison sentence in Fresno Superior Court history, according to the Fresno Bee. A jury in September found Lopez guilty of 186 felony counts of sexual assault, including dozens of counts of rape of a minor. Prosecutors say Lopez’s daughter was first sexually abused by a family friend but that instead of protecting her, Lopez turned her into ‘a piece of property.’ They say the victim was raped two to three times a week from May 2009 to May 2013, when the girl got the courage to leave him. In announcing the punishment, Judge Edward Sarkisian Jr. told Lopez he is a ‘serious danger to society’ and noted that Lopez had never shown remorse and has blamed his daughter for his predicament. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Calla Re: Making icons Dear Webby, I need to make a bunch of icons for vision impaired people.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Making a Mosquito Trap Because mosquitoes are attracted to the CO2 we breathe out, I started looking for ideas that used CO2 as the bait for the mosquito trap. I did think of dry ice but it does dissipate fairly quickly. I found a cached link on Google here. It seems to be active again now. I've rewritten the instructions some and hopefully it will work as well. Thanks to the students for their hard work on this project. I've used some of their photos for illustration. Supplies: 1 2 liter soda bottle a sharp knife black paper tape candy thermometer Take a 2 liter soda bottle. Cut off the top right below where it starts to narrow for the top, invert and place inside the lower half. Make a simple sugar syrup. Ingredients: 1 cup sugar 1 cup water 2 cups cool water 1 tsp. active dry yeast Directions: Bring 1 cup of the water to a boil. Dissolve the sugar into the boiling water. Once the sugar is dissolved completely, remove the pan from the heat. Stir in 2 cups cool water, stir well. Check the temperature of the syrup to make sure it is no hotter than 90 degrees F, if hotter, let cool to 90 degrees F, add 1 tsp. active dry yeast, no need to mix. Put syrup in the bottom part of the bottle, using the cut off neck piece, leave in place. Be sure to seal the two parts of the bottle with the tape. The fermenting yeast will release carbon dioxide. Put black paper around the bottle since mosquitoes like dark places and carbon dioxide. This mosquito trap will then start working.

Ma and Pa were two hillbillies living in West Virginia out on a farm up in the hills. Pa has found out that the hole under the outhouse is full. He goes into the house and tells Ma that he doesn't know what to do to empty the hole. Ma says, "Why don't you go ask the young'n down the road? He must be smart 'cause he's a college gradjyate." So Pa drives down to the neighbor's house and asks him, "Mr. College gradjyate, my outhouse hole is full, and I don't know what to do to empty it." The young'n tells him, "Get yourself two sticks of dynamite, one with a short fuse and one with a long fuse. Put them both under the outhouse and light them both at the same time. The first one will go off and shoot the outhouse in the air. While it's in the air the second one will then go off and spread the poop all across your farm, fertilizing your ground. The outhouse should then come back down to the same spot atop the now empty hole." Pa thanks the neighbor, then drives to the hardware store and picks up two sticks of dynamite, one with a short fuse and one with a long fuse. He goes home and puts them under the outhouse. He then lights them and runs behind a tree. All of a sudden, Ma comes running out of the house and into the outhouse! Off goes the first stick of dynamite, shooting the outhouse into the air. BOOM! Off goes the second stick of dynamite, spreading poop all over the farm. WHAM! The outhouse comes crashing back down atop the hole. Pa races to the outhouse, throws open the door and asks, "Ma, are you all right??!!" As she pulls up her pants, she says...

Unfortunately, this year, winter decided to start a bit earlier. Students in both the men's and women's dormitories complained about the bitter cold, but were told that nothing could be done. After days of no heat and no respite in immediate sight, the ladies realized that their dorm faced the equally cold men's dorm. They turned a bed sheet into a banner with the message, "TURN ON THE HEAT OR WE'LL TURN ON THE BOYS!" The thermostat was turned up rather hastily. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Lillemor for this picture I was trying to park and finally I had to get out to scare the iguana away becouse he was in the space... he was funny as he didn’t even care how close the car came, he just knew I wouldnt hurt him.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Eva Brunne, Bishop Stockholm, Sweden First Lesbian Bishop Orders Church Crosses Replaced with Islamic Symbols Here is a clear case of religious suicide. The Bishop of Stockholm has proposed a church in her diocese (of course it is not HER church) remove all signs of the cross and put down markings showing the direction to Mecca for the benefit of Muslim worshippers. Eva Brunne, who was made the world’s first openly lesbian bishop by the church of Sweden in 2009, and has a young son with her wife and fellow lesbian priest Gunilla Linden, made the suggestion to make those of other faiths more welcome. This kind of decision has unexpected consequences. First off, the first wave of Sharia Islamists are within their rights to take the lesbian bishop up to the steeple and throw her off. After all, she is a an Infidel, a woman speaking in public and she is homosexual…all crimes deserving death. Then they will burn the church down to celebrate. The church targeted is the Seamen’s mission church in Stockholm’s eastern dockyards. The Bishop held a meeting there this year and challenged the priest to explain what he’d do if a ship’s crew came into port who weren’t Christian but wanted to pray. Calling Muslim guests to the church “angels“, the Bishop later took to her official blog to explain that removing Christian symbols from the church and preparing the building for Muslim prayer doesn’t make a priest any less a defender of the faith. Rather, to do any less would make one “stingy towards people of other faiths”. The bishop insisted this wasn’t an issue, after all airports and hospitals already had multi-faith prayer rooms, and converting the dockyard church would only bring it up to speed. Regardless, the announcement has aroused protest. Father Patrik Pettersson, one of the priests in her diocese and active in the same parish as the Seaman’s mission church has hit back in a blog of his own, complaining there is no way you could equate a consecrated church with a prayer room, remarking “I should have thought a bishop would be able to tell the difference”. The actual priest at the Seaman’s mission was left nonplussed by the comments of the Bishop when contacted by Dagen.se for comment. As an independent mission the church operates outside of the diocese, and so the bishop has no authority there, a fact reflected by the response of the church director who said the bishop’s words were her business alone. When asked whether she would be removing the cross from her church, Kiki Wetterberg responded: “I have no problem with Muslim or Hindu sailors coming here and praying. But I believe that we are a Christian church, so we keep the symbols. If I visit a mosque I do not ask them to take down their symbols. It’s my choice to go in there”. The upper echelons of the Church of Sweden, much like other national churches across Europe, seem to be fully invested in the diversity mission. A parish church in multicultural paradise Malmö declared it would be holding a service in solidarity with the local Muslim community as a protest against a march by anti-Islamisation movement PEGIDA in the city. The priest responsible told media: “During the protest, the Swedish Church is going to hold a service where we express joy for our city and our Muslim friends. “There is strong support for diverse cultures in Malmö and it is important that the church is there to support that”. Malmö is Sweden’s gateway to Europe, and is the main point of ingress to the Nordic nations for the thousands of migrants travelling through Europe from Africa and the East who have decided to make it home. Source: Breitbart As a major bottleneck into the region, with a single bridge and ferry route connecting the country to the rest of Europe, the arrival of these migrants has heralded an unprecedented level of criminality in the city. Describing the ‘no-go’ zones that have sprung up around the city and calling for greater border controls to get criminal migration under control, Chief Superintendent Torsten Elofsson said: “Years ago you could go with two officers, no problem. Now you have to send four officers and two cars – if the fire brigade want to go, they have to take a police escort. They throw stones and try to stop the fireman from putting out fires. “They sabotage the police cars. You can’t leave them unguarded – when you come back to it you find the windows smashed and the tyres deflated. It isn’t quite a no-go zone, but we have had to develop special routines to go there”. Of course the bishop is a liberal, so she never sees the problems. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Carol Re: Make icons on W10 Dear Webby, Would you tell me how to make icons on my desktop?

"Well," said the Texan, "I remember the crash, and then there was a beautiful light, and then the Californian and the Scot and I were standing at the gates of heaven. St. Peter approached us and said that we were all too young to die, and said that for a donation of $50, we could return to earth. So of course I pulled out my wallet and gave him the $50, and the next thing I knew was back here." "That's amazing!" said the one of the doctors, "But what happened to the other two?" "Last I saw them," replied the Texan, "the Scot was haggling over the price and the Californian was waiting for the government to pay his."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Gary Sovie, 49, Columbus, Ohio Ohio man jailed after donating bag to charity with pictures of him raping toddler inside A man who donated a bag to charity that contained photos of him raping a toddler has been jailed for 17 years. Gary Sovie, 49, had given a tote bag of belongings into a second-hand store in Columbus, Ohio, which also contained the photographs. A Salvation Army worker found 32 photos, some showing a naked young girl and others showing the man sexually assaulting the child. It’s believed the Polaroids date as far back as 1999. The bag was traced back to Sovie by the authorities because, as well as the photos, it also contained some of his post and receipts. When he was arrested, Sovie told officers that he’s a ‘very sick person’. The victim’s mother told the court that the photos were taken when her daughter was between 16 and 18 months old. She also told local station WBNS-TV that her daughter ‘never suspected this. She has no memory. She has no recollection of this incident. ‘I was beside myself. This was my child. This was my whole world’. Sovie pleaded guilty to rape and pandering sexually orientated matter involving a minor. He was sentenced to 17 years in prison, and fined $35,000 (£28,600) as well as court costs. He has also been placed on the sex offenders’ register. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Gina Re: Old icons Dear Webby, I have a lot of old icons which at one time were in frequent enough use so that I shortened the title under them.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Labels from Glass Jars By lalala... [774 Posts, 103 Comments] In my quest to reclaim a Mason jar (specifically Classico pasta sauce jars) I needed to soak off the labels. I submerged the jars in hot water and let them sit until the paper was easy to pull off. The best part with the Classico jars is that the glue they use is also water soluble! So I was able to remove the glue with hot soapy water. With other jar, I removed the glue with Goo Gone and a paper towel. I was amazed at how well this worked! Steam from a regular steam iron works well and very fast with any label I have ever come across. Have FUN! DearWebby

Police said Nikki Rowena Sismanidis, 18, and Jasmine Marie Suarez, 19, both of whom reside at 1000 SW 62nd Blvd., allegedly broke into the Southwest Ninth Way home of a common friend. Once inside, the pair allegedly placed strips of duct tape on the victim’s bedroom walls, which caused damage to the painted walls when later removed, the report said. Also, a large portion of one wall was covered in a pattern using duct tape that spelled out an expletive and police said the pair planted animal feces on the victim's bed. The victim told police that Sismanidis has become hostile in the past when she chooses not to hang out with her, and on the previous day, the victim did not respond to texts from Sismanidis asking the victim to hang out. According to the report, both Sismanidis and Suarez admitted their involvement in the burglary and vandalism during a phone conversation with the victim and they arrived during the officers on-scene investigation and admitted their involvement to police. Both Sismanidis and Suarez were arrested and charged with burglary and criminal mischief.

Doris Dear Doris Save an original in the highest resolution possible. If disk space is limited, you can save cropped or edited versions at lower resolutions, but save the original! If a picture is for the net, 72 DPI is enough, though sometimes you can fake a higher resolution by for example saving a picture at a larger size and then forcing the browser to recalculate to a smaller size. It slows down the page, but occasionally makes a picture look sharper. When it comes to printing, nowadays the sharpness is set during the page set-up. If you select inkm or toner saving mode, the picture will not be as clear and sharp as when you select Best Quality. Toner Saving mode is "Good enough for Government work". If you have to scan anything to send to the governement, or even a prescription to fax to Costco, the lowest quality is good enough. It is still quite readable. To hang it on the wall, use highest quality. With today's printers, don't worry about dots per inch. Have FUN!

Robert Dear Robert Yes, sure. They even have an app for Android. Basically, MailWasher works on the server level, and cleans the mail up there, without downloading more than the header. With your widdle Android Pokemon-Chaser that is quite important! MailWasher users have enjoyed that benefit since the mid 90's. We don't download the crap and THEN wash it. We let MailWasher wash it on the server. You get a safe digest of what is up on the server, with anything suspicious already marked for deleting. It exposes hidden, underlying addreses and helps you make quick decisions. You can additionally make filters to override all that helpfulness. For example, if aunt Martha often mixes up Vinegar and the stuff mentioned in spam, you can mark her as a Friend, or even make a filter to safeguard her entire family. You can use all the regular expressions in filters, like and, and not, and not but if, and-or, etc. And you do it all with pull-down selectors. It is quite civilized and has been around for about 20 years now. Mailwasher also has a recycle bin. You can rescue deleted mails from there. Have FUN! DearWebby From Bella, a classic I have not printed for years: The fragrance department of a major New York City store where I shop is always pushing the latest scents. Attractive models move about the floor offering to spray customers with the newest bouquet. One day, outside the store's restaurant, a model sprayed two women who had just finished their lunch. When one woman com- mented that the perfume was too strong, the model replied, "The fragrance will be softer once it dries and the alcohol wears off." "See!" her friend chided. "I told you not to have that second drink."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Choosing Storage Containers By ShirleyE [107 Posts, 66 Comments] I am a naturally untidy and disorganised person and this one tip makes a huge difference to the state of my cupboards shelves and drawers: Never impulse buy a storage container, whether it's for food, finances, crafts, shoes, nuts and bolts or toys. You know how it is, you finally decide it's about time you sorted out your mess, so with great enthusiasm you hit the shops and come home with cute stylish, neat or innovative storage solutions only to find they don't fit in the cupboard or on the shelf Take time to measure your spaces, write down the measurements and take them with you to the store together with a tape measure. Buy only containers that are going to fit the space rather than how they look and your surroundings will be 10 times more manageable and easier to keep tidy once you are sorted.

At one point in my life I had considered joining the Baptist Church. For those of you who don't know, the Baptists practice total body immersion to baptize a person. Luckily I even knew a minister in that faith, since I was dating his daughter and it was her idea to start out with. I asked him if he would consider performing the service. He paused a minute or two, gave me a long thoughtful look and said, "Well, if you're serious about this, a dipping just won't do it for you. We'll have to find a place to anchor you overnight."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Inexpensive Stepping Stones .... By Helmut [9 Posts, 147 Comments] There is a much easier way to do that. Get a bag of ordinary ready-mix concrete and some chicken mesh. Peel the lawn where you want a step, round, heart shaped, like a Sasquatch imprint, whatever, and hammer the dirt below it nice and hard. Pour some ready mix into the hole. Use a planter trowel or mini shovel to mix it with some water, poke the chickenmesh down below the surface, agitate the mess a bit and smooth it. Yes, mix it right in the hole, no need for dirtying a separate mixing container! If you want, you can add marble or brick planter topping, and pat it in. As a kid in the 50's I wrote the date into one with small white pebbles. After an hour use a brush or broom and a bit of water to clean the topping, or to add a bit of texture to the concrete. Shield it from the sun with cardboard or scrap wood for a day or two. That's all there is to it. Have FUN! DearWebby

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Wesley Ryan Blackburn, 35, New Paris, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania youth pastor demands divorce after raping and impregnating 15-year-old girl A Pennsylvania youth pastor demanded a divorce after his wife confronted him about raping and impregnating a teenage girl he met through church. Wesley Ryan Blackburn, who served until last week as youth pastor at Faith Brethren Bible Church in New Paris, was charged with 84 felony counts of statutory sexual assault, 84 misdemeanor counts of indecent assault and one felony count of corruption of minors, reported The Tribune-Democrat. The 35-year-old Blackburn, a father of five, revealed his relationship with the girl Oct. 5 and told his wife he no longer loved her and wanted a divorce. Blackburn’s wife told church pastor James Espenshade the following morning that her husband had engaged in sexual activity with a 15-year-old member of his youth group and gotten the teen pregnant. Espenshade and church deacons confronted Blackburn, who refused to speak to them — so they immediately fired the youth pastor and called police. “We didn’t even care what he had to say,” Espenshade said. “We don’t tolerate this kind of stuff — it’s inappropriate, it’s reprehensible. There was never a discussion of anything else. We had to do what was right.” A state trooper went to Blackburn’s office, where he found the man packing up his belongings, and interviewed him about the case. Blackburn said he met the girl in 2009, when he first came to the church, but they grew closer after she joined his youth group in 2014, when she was 13 or 14 years old. He said the relationship became sexual in March, and investigators said he admitted to impregnating the girl this year. State troopers arrested Blackburn at that point. Blackburn’s wife said she refused to sign divorce papers presented by her husband. The former youth pastor remains held on $200,000 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Carol Re: Is ScanGuard safe to download?

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning Stainless Steel Cookware Judy Pariser S. I got this terrific stainless steel whistling tea kettle at the church thrift shop yesterday for $2 (half price sale.) It was full of grease and dirt. The black handle had some white residue on it. I figured for $2 I could take a chance and see how the steel part cleaned up with a soap-filled pad. I assumed the handle would always be stained, but I could live with it. The lady working there told me to use a Magic Eraser instead of steel wool to clean it. I use the knock-offs from the dollar store. Within 2 minutes the entire kettle, including the bottom and handle, looked like new, and I only used half of one pad. I wish I had taken before pictures, but you can see the beautiful after results.

There was a thick and heavy snow storm and a foot of snow on top of the icy hardpack that had covered the parking lot when they had arrived earlier. They jumped into the icy car and started it up. Suddenly they were in a hurry to get home and the driver floored the accelerator. After a couple of minutes in the thick snow storm, just as the car heater started to blow warm air, an old man appeared in the passenger window and tapped lightly. The passenger screamed, "Look at he window. There's an old ghost's face there!" The driver stomped down the accelerator even harder, but the old man's face stayed in the window. The passenger rolled his window down part way and, scared out of his wits, yelled, "What do you want?" The old man softly replied, "You got any tobacco?" The passenger handed the old man a cigarette and yelled, "Step on it," to the driver, rolling up the window in terror. A few minutes later they calmed down and started laughing again. The driver said, "I don't know what happened, but don't worry; the speedometer says we're doing 80 now." All of a sudden there was a light tapping on the window and the old man's face reappeared in the heavy blizzard. "There he is again," the passenger yelled. He rolled down the window and shakily said, "Yes?" "Do you have a light?" the old man quietly asked. The passenger threw a lighter out the window, screaming at the driver: "Step on it!" The speedometer showed about 100 miles an hour now. They were trying to forget what they had just seen and heard, when all of a sudden there came some more tapping. "Oh my God! He's back!" The passenger rolled down the window and screamed in stark terror, "WHAT NOW?" The old man gently replied, "Do you guys want some help getting off that icy patch?" ______________________________________________________ From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Bobby Brown, La Noah Ealy Jr., Daveon Nix, Quartez Walker. Four Alabama men arrested in attack on teen who said 'Blue lives matter' Four black men face assault charges in connection with the beating of a white Alabama high school student who had posted pro-police comments online, police confirmed Wednesday. The men, all former Sylacauga High School students, were arrested Tuesday after the Sept. 30 attack against 17-year- old Brian Ogle, Sylacauga Police Chief Kelley Johnson told reporters. Police have said the attack may have been racially motivated. Ogle's mother, Brandi Allen, says her son responded to students wearing Black Lives Matter T-shirts at his school with "Blue lives matter," a defense of police officers. Officers found him bleeding on the ground after a homecoming football game. He was hospitalized with serious head injuries. Twenty-year-old Quartez Walker and 19-year-old Bobby Brown were arrested at Stillman College. Eighteen-year-old La Noah Ealy, Jr. was arrested at Auburn University in Montgomery. Twenty-year-old Daveon Nix was arrested in Sylacauga. Nix is the son of Sylacauga District 2 City Councilwoman- elect Tiffany Nix, The Daily Home reported. "Instead of us planning for his 18th birthday, we're here. Why? Because he made a statement that he backs the blue? I'm still trying to understand how someone, no matter the color of their skin, can do this to another human being," Allen said as her son recovered in the hospital. "I don't wish any harm on anyone's child. I would like for them to have to look at my child right now. I don't want any other mother to have to go through what I went through these past few days." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Morris B Re: Re-use CD's ? Dear Webby, We moved into the former office of a business that has closed down and we found boxes and boxes of used back-up CD's. So, we called the people who had been here. They said they were out of business and didn't care who knew what was on the CD's and that we were welcome to re-use them. Is it safe to re-use CD's ? Thanks, Morris B Dear Morris Yes, sure, especially with back-up CD's that have had very little use. Just erase them with your CD burner and use them like new ones. If they are really old, you might get only a couple of safe erases and reburns, but with the newer CDs you can get many re-uses out of them. Have FUN! DearWebby After a young couple brought their new baby home, the wife suggested that her husband should try his hand at changing diapers. "I'm busy," he said, "I'll do the next one." The next time came around and she asked again. The husband looked puzzled. "Oh! I didn't mean the next diaper. I meant the next baby!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Reviving Tired Stiff Paintbrushes By ahorrasi [18 Posts, 13 Comments] Total Time: 1 hour to 24 hours Source: I had at one point purchased a pricey 'brush restorer' fluid but then I realized the same main ingredient was the same as the one found in common nail polish remover. Supplies: dirty, old, tired brushes nail polish remover soap paint thinner/turpentine/turpatine, etc. if needed (only relevant for oil based paints) Steps: To restore brushes ruined by dry acrylics, just soak them in nail polish remover for 24 hours and you will be amazed at the results. To fix brushes damaged by oil paints, only soak for an hour at most; for most stiffness due to not properly cleaning oil brushes, just a 20 minute soak will be enough. It is important not to leave the brushes in the nail polish solution for too long because the acetone will quickly wear away the brush bristle and make the brush frayed, which you do not want! So, especially if you have expensive brushes, test them frequently and pull them out of the solution as soon as you feel the stiffness go away. After you have soaked the brushes in the solution and felt their flexibility return, wash them thourougly with soap and warm water. This is important so as to get rid of the chemical that will eventually wear the brush away. NOTE: please be careful because the solution will wear down the paint of the brush as well. Try to only soak the metal part that adheres to the bristles. BONUS: restores paint! Say you're working on a great project, in acrylic, but you realize that your tube has dried up! Oh no! What to do? Rush out and buy more, or use the magic substance to reconstitute the paint? Yeah, that's right, the nail polish remover will reconstitute entire tubes of acrylics, gouache, and any other dried out water based paint! (turpentine and mineral spirits work for oils) Just add a few drops to a teaspoon of the stuff to the paint, stab the paint so that the fluid penetrates, leave it be for a half hour or more, and watch the paint reconstitute itself.

The customer in the Italian restaurant was so pleased that he asked to speak to the chef. The owner proudly led him into the kitchen and introduced him to the chef. "Your veal parmigiana was superb," the customer said. "I just spent a month in Italy, and yours is better than any I ever had over there in Italy." "Naturally," the chef said. "Over there, in Italy, they use cheap domestic cheese. Ours is imported."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Crenshanda Williams, 43, Houston, Texas 911 operator charged for hanging up on callers A 911 operator is accused of intentionally hanging up on callers during emergencies simply because she was not in the mood to help, according to Houston police. Crenshanda Williams has been charged with interference with an emergency telephone call, according to KIAH. Williams had been employed as a telecommunicator with the Houston Emergency Center since July 2014, and supervisors began to notice that her logs revealed an abnormally high amount of “short calls,” with a duration of less than 20 seconds. Supervisors investigated the recorded call logs, and found that thousands of calls had been disconnected by Williams between Oct. 2015 and March 2016. At least one of the calls was for a robbery and homicide, and two were regarding speeding vehicles, police said. Williams raised suspicion on March 12, specifically, when she allegedly hung up on several callers – the first call was ended immediately after she picked it up. During the second call, an operator — identified as Williams — is heard answering “Houston 911, do you need medical, police or fire?” When the male caller responded, “This is a robbery,” Williams is heard sighing before hanging up, according to court documents. Investigators tracked down the robbery/shooting caller, who confirmed someone hung up the phone the first time he called in, frustrating him, and he had to call back a second time. By the time police arrived, a person was dead. Investigators said that the following day, Williams hung up on several more people, including a security officer who was attempting to report a dangerous street racing incident. The operator, again identified as Williams, said “Houston 911, do you need medical, police or fire?” The caller only had time to say “This is officer Molten. I’m driving on 45 South right now and I am at ……” before Williams ended the call. Although the call was disconnected, the recording captured Williams saying, “Ain’t nobody got time for this. For Real.” The officer called in again, and a different 911 operator picked up and assisted him. Investigators reached out to the officer, who also confirmed the “hang up call” on that day, records show. Police say Williams admitted to disconnecting the calls because she “did not want to talk to anyone at that time.” Investigators said Williams’ actions prevented and interfered with the callers’ ability to request assistance during an emergency and charges were filed against her. Williams’ bond was set at $1,000. B L & M ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Ada Re: Use data from other sheet on Excel work book Dear Webby, YES! Please tell us how to show data from sheet 2,3 4, etc on the top roundup sheet! Microsoft sure doesn't! Ada Dear Ada It is not really difficult at all, just a bit weird. In the late 80's Lotus sued Borland about allegedly copying their "Look and Feel", and later, when the big war between Microsoft and Borland started with almost monthly updates of even newer features, Microsoft used some rather weird ways to get the same thing done without doing it the same way. Linking in data from other sheets in a stack of woork sheets is easiest explained on an aexample. Make a stack of 3 or more worksheets and rename them by right clicking their tab and selecting RENAME to Jan, Feb, Mar, etc. Now imagine each sheet has your expenses and incomes, with a total on cell D 33 Go to cell D 33 on the MARch sheet, and enter a number. Hit Enter go back to that cell ALT I, N ENTER Type in a name, for example MARtotal ENTER Now that cell, where you have the totals for March, is named. Jump to the cover sheet, or JAN, or whatever you have named it, go to the spot where you need the March totals, type CTRL K Don't worry, it will get Microsofter yet! CTRL K lets you select a NAMED cell. That puts a rather useless link to that and it's name into the cell. Now, with the cursor on that cell, go up to the formula bar, and put an equal ign in front of the name, and *1 after it. That turns the name into a number, that you can use as a number to be summed together with others. Sometimes, it works even without the *1, however I continue using it. If the source number has a space in front or behind it due to sloppy copying, the *1 will produce an error message right there. That can save a lot of time troubleshooting at year end. Even though it is a weird way of going about it, it is well worth printing out this part or saving it. Sooner or later you will want to be able to use data, that is on different sheets. Have FUN! DearWebby I was at the drugstore and noticed a young male cashier staring at the pretty girl in front of me. Her total came to $16.42, and after handing over a $100 bill, she waited for change. "Here you go," said the cashier, smiling as he returned the proper amount. "Have a great day!" Now I placed my items on the counter. The tally was $62.79, and I too gave the cashier a $100 bill. "I'm sorry, Sir. We can't accept anything larger than a fifty," he told me, pointing to a sign stating store policy. "But you just accepted that last girl's hundred," I reasoned. "I had to," he said. "It had her phone number on it. Luckily the next check-out lane had a lady working there and after I wrote my phone number on it, she accepted the hundred dollar bill.

Here is a nice old classic to start the day: A tough old cowboy once counseled his grandson that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a pinch of gunpowder on his oatmeal every morning.

Being concerned about the farmer's soul, the preacher asked the man, "Are you laboring in the vineyard of the Lord, my good man?" Not even looking at the preacher and continuing his work, the farmer replied, "Naw, these are soybeans." "You don't understand," said the preacher. "Are you a Christian?" With the same amount of interest as his previous answer, the farmer said, "Nope my name is Jones. You must be lookin' for Jim Christian. He lives a mile south of here." The young, determined preacher tried again, asking the farmer, "Are you lost?" "Naw! I've lived here all my life," answered the farmer. "Are you prepared for Armageddon?" the frustrated preacher asked. This caught the farmer's attention and he asked, "When's it gonna be?" Thinking he had accomplished something, the young preacher replied, "It could be today, tomorrow or the next day." Taking a handkerchief from his back pocket and wiping his brow, the farmer remarked, "Well, don't mention it to my wife.

So a McDonald’s employee went outside to find out what was going on and saw them asleep in the car, still at the ordering speaker. He called the Sheriff’s Office. Deputy Christopher Schwartz wrote in his report that when he approached the car, he saw the “female asleep, mouth open, with drool coming down her face.” He tried to wake her but she “continued to sit with her eyes closed.” She finally woke up and “looked at me as if she had no idea where she was.” She then shook Yonson awake. Schwartz told her stand behind the car; by that time, Deputy Garrett Bragg already had Yonson at the back of the car. Both smelled of alcohol, Schwartz wrote. Bragg asked Yonson to go through a field sobriety test. At first he agreed, then decided not to. He got combative and was yelling, Schwartz wrote. The deputy wrote that Yonson resisted being handcuffed. At one point, Bragg and Sgt. Nick Whiteman “grabbed” Yonson and “secured” him against the car. Schwartz then tried walking him to his cruiser but Yonson “lost his balance and stated I pushed him over.” After a minor scuffle, the police got Yonson into Schwartz’s cruiser. Turns out that Yonson isn’t who he told police he was. He didn’t have a driver’s license and initially gave his last name as Johnson, then admitted to who he really is. Turns out Yonson is a registered sex offender in West Virginia stemming from a Feb. 9, 2015, conviction there. He hadn’t registered in Monroe as a sex offender, as required by law. He also has three drunk-driving convictions in South Carolina, one in 2008 and two last year. The woman was taken back to her hotel. Yonson, however, was booked into the county jail, where he remained Friday on $25,000 bond, charged with felony driving under the influence (fourth or subsequent offense), failing to register as a sex offender, resisting arrest, driving with a suspended license, battery on a law officer and giving false information to a police officer. He’s scheduled to go before Acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker in Marathon on Oct. 27. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Helga Re: Goto link in spreadsheet Dear Webby, I'm glad to have finally found a spreadsheet guru again! How do I make goto links to jump to far away cells in a spreadsheet? I used to know how to do it with DOS spreadsheets, but those tricks don't work any more. What do I do for making Got-To buttons in Excel? Thanks, Helga Dear Helga Yes, when the spreadsheet makers started to cater to the mouse addicts and reduce productivity, a lot of old tricks were lost. Now, for a GoTo you have to first name the destination. I usually just name a cell that has no numbers in it near the place I want to jump to. To name it, put the cursor intom that cell, and look at the top left, where Excel shows you the name of the cell, for example D120. Click in there and type a nickname for that area, for example October. That's all tehre is to nameing a destination. Now go to where you want the Go-To button. If you have a fixed header row, that does not scroll, for column headers, -a DEFINITE Must-Have for pros-, put your elevator buttons in there. If you want, you can put a small icon in there. Put the cursor on it, and hit ALT I, i Then you get a confusing looking window. It is quite simple once you stop panicking. Select the middle row, Place in existing document Now type the destination cell number where it tells you to. (Second line from the top) If the destination is on a different sheet, use the directory tree there to select the sheet and the right button. That is all there is to it. If you want more than just 3 Worksheets, like you have the A to ZZ worksheets in Quattro, just hit ALT I, w, or click on Insert, Worksheet That way you can have for example a top sheet for a year, and 12 monthly sheets. If anybody wants to know the top secret way to show data from one of the other sheets in the stack, for example show the total expenses result in Worksheet 11 (October) on the Annual Roundup (Worksheet 1), I'll tell you tomorrow.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Expandable Garden Hose Review By Litter Gitter [185 Posts, 613 Comments] When I heard about the expandable garden hose, I was not impressed. I didn't think there would be much to it. However, three years ago, I saw one in Bed Bath and Beyond and decided to purchase it. It is one of the best buys I have ever made. I really enjoy using it. It stretches out to 50 feet. It is light weight and does not tangle. It makes washing the car, the siding on the house, and cleaning out the gutters much easier. After I use it, I open the hose nozzle for the water to drain out. As it drains, the hose crawls as it shrinks. When the water is no long coming out, I remove the heavy nozzle and hang the hose to dry. I keep it in the utility room out of the weather. "Expandable Garden Hose, the hose that grows". It would make a great Christmas gift.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Columbus Henderson, 45, Fort Lauderdale, Florida Florida shoplifter lost his pants and ID a 350-pound Florida man ran from a Walmart with two stolen TVs, but his getaway was compromised when his pants-- containing his ID--“fell off as he ran away,” according to cops who yesterday apprehended the suspect, who had a crack pipe stuffed with Brillo buried in his anus at the time of his 3:43 AM arrest. According to court complaints, Columbus Henderson fled from a Walmart Supercenter in Fort Lauderdale on September 26 with a pair of 40-inch Hisense televisions. Henderson, seen at right, bolted with the merchandise after he allowed a cashier to scan the $298 items. As he scooted through the parking lot, the 45-year-old Henderson’s pants “fell off as he ran away,” according to Officer Scott Brandow. It appears that after Henderson’s pants fell to his ankles, he proceeded to run right out of the garment. Police later determined that Henderson’s abandoned pants contained the suspect’s “medical identification.” Investigators added, “The entire incident was captured on video.” It took cops about a week to catch up with Henderson, who was nabbed early Tuesday morning for grand theft, a felony. Upon arrival at the Pinellas County jail, Henderson informed officers that he had a crack pipe concealed in his anus. “When officers removed him from the vehicle, the defendant had removed the crack pipe from his anus and dropped it on the ground,” a patrolman reported. The glass pipe was recovered by officers who reported that it was “stuffed” with steel wool and had burn marks on one end (Henderson was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia). Locked up in lieu of $2150 bond, Henderson has a rap sheet that includes prior busts for aggravated battery, robbery, theft, possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving without a license. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Rita Re: soft date in spradsheet Dear Webby, my husband is using a spreadsheet as a daily log. I'm not complaining, it's a great improvement over a loose pile of cigarette packages with semi-legible scribbles. The problem is that he used a formula that puts in the current date. @(today). Every midnight each date changes to the current date. I realize, all the past dates are lost. How can I rig it so that new dates put in stay nailed down to THAT date ? Thanks Rita Dear Rita In Quattro, tell him to use CTRL D instead. That just puts the date number into the field. If that column is formatted for displaying the date, it will show as the date, but the value in the cell is a number, not a formula. In Excel it is similar, but not as easy to remember. Instead of D for Date, Excel uses the semi-colon ; CTRL ; inserts a static date that does not change. Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ Reported by the bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Nasar Hanif, 29, Oldham, England Groom high on drugs wrecks £130k supercar during high-speed police chase on his stag party Nasar Hanif's pre-wedding celebration descended into mayhem after he got involved in a city centre brawl that sent him fleeing from police. Hanif had previous convictions for affray, obstructing police, possessing heroin and cocaine with intent, and driving offences, typical for a high profile dope dealer. High on a cocktail of drugs smashed up a £130,000 Audi after he was Tasered by police during a high-speed chase on his stag do. Nasar Hanif's pre-wedding celebration descended into mayhem after he got involved in a city centre brawl that sent him fleeing from police in a Audi R8 Spyder. 130 000 Pounds is $162 000, but the Audi R8 Spyder is too hot for USA. High on cocaine and cannabis, Hanif crashed the vehicle into a lamp post and wrote it off after police were forced to Taser him to stop his rampage. He ran from the vehicle and was found moments later cowering under a car by a sniffer dog. Hanif, 29, collapsed in tears and had to be helped out of the dock as he was jailed for dangerous driving and assault causing actual bodily harm at Manchester Crown Court. Bridegroom Hanif, of Oldham, went out with pals to the Curry Mile to celebrate his ‘last night of freedom’. His group then headed to the city centre to show off cars they had rented for the wedding, which was set for the next day, reports the Manchester Evening News . The convoy included the Audi R8 Hanif was driving, a Lamborghini Gallardo, a Mercedes c63 convertible, and a Mercedes e250 convertible driven by his 25-year-old friend Vikaar Ali, prosecutor Justin Hayhoe revealed. In the early hours of October 10, outside The Printworks, the group got into argument with two men in town for a Rugby World Cup game. After the men pursued the convoy along the street, Hanif and his friends got out of vehicles. One of the rugby fans was chased off, the other was given a kicking by Hanif and seven of his friends. 7 against 1. The group fled after dragging the unconscious man they had assaulted out of the road. But police were on their tail, and caught up with them at Oldham Road. There, Vikaar Ali, who was driving the Mercedes E250, flashed to his friends that they were being pursued, before turning off. Police followed the Lamborghini and the R8 as they travelled at low speed towards Failsworth . When the cars stopped at lights, the police tried to block them in. Both vehicles reversed, with Hanif hitting the car behind him, before speeding off. The Lamborghini got away, but an officer caught up with Hanif at the car park of Tesco, ramming the R8 and forcing it into a spin. Hanif was still determined to get away, so the officer got out of his car, drew his Taser, and ordered him to stop. He still carried on, and ended up being Tasered at the wheel before losing control and smashing the car into a lamp post. Despite this, he got out of the wreckage, and ran off before being found hiding under a car by a police dog. Sentencing Hanif to 18 months in jail, Judge Richard Mansell QC said ‘sickening’ violence had been followed by ‘appalling’ driving. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Abe Re: Currency Converter Dear Webby, I have used the XE currency converter that you have in the side menu hundreds of times, but it stopped working.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Emma Phillips, 24, Wallasey, Merseyside Great Britain Teacher student got vibrator stuck up her butt during sex with boyfriend Emma Phillips, a mother of a two year old from Wallasey, Merseyside, first thought boyfriend Lee had hidden the vibrator under a pillow as a prank. But then when she pressed down on her stomach she felt a buzzing inside her. They tried to remove it using a fork handle and barbecue prongs but all efforts failed. She was rushed to hospital to have the sex toy taken out and now Emma wants to warn people not to be afraid of getting help in embarrassing situations. Emma, 24, said: ‘We were looking around the bed in case it had fallen out. ‘When I leaned on my stomach I could feel it vibrating – it was stuck low down and at one point was even wedged behind my hip.’ She added: ‘For a while Lee was suggesting all kinds of wonderful options. ‘He tried a kitchen fork handle, which we won’t be using again, and said he could feel it at one point but that it was too far up – it was a goner. ‘He tried barbecue prongs too but after a certain point – after an hour of trying – we knew were going to have to go to hospital. We were both a bit shocked.’ After initially seeing the funny side Emma said that they quickly realised that she’d need medical help. Emma said: ‘We’d both been drinking the night before so we couldn’t drive. I had to make the most embarrassing call to the ambulance at 7am. ‘The call handler said ‘tell me exactly what the problem is’ so I had to tell him.’ Doctors carried out an x-ray to work out where the still- buzzing vibrator was and realised it was too high up and would be too painful for them to manually extract it while she was awake. Emma said: ‘I think at that point it started getting quite serious. The doctors were really good – they all moved quite quickly and were so reassuring telling me they saw it quite often which was quite a relief. ‘At first we were jokey about it but then realised it wasn’t much of a joke especially when there was talk of going through my stomach if they couldn’t get it.’ As she was being wheeled to theatre doctors told Emma if they couldn’t extract it rectally they would have to go through the bowel and take some out which could mean at least six months with a colostomy bag. Emma said: ‘I think before that I thought of it as just a little operation to get it out, I still wasn’t taking it that seriously. ‘When he said that – that only when I woke up would I know whether they would have to cut me open – it was really scary.’ At 12pm Emma underwent the minute-and-a-half surgery which involved placing a camera down her throat and the surgeon pressing on her stomach before manually extracting it. Doctors offered her the 12 inch toy as a keepsake but she declined. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Phil Re: Move cookies Dear Webby, I realize that half the world thinks cookies are a bad thing, but personally I love them.

DearWebby The new Librarian decided that instead of checking out children's books by writing the names of borrowers on the book cards herself, she would have the youngsters sign their own names. She would then tell them they were signing a "Contract" for returning the books on time. Her first customer was a second grader, who looked surprised to see a new Librarian. He brought four books to the desk and shoved them across to the Librarian, with his library card on top. The Librarian pushed the books back and told him to sign them out. The boy laboriously printed his name and card numberon each book card and then handed them to her with a look of utter disgust.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Efficient Ironing with Aluminum Foil By attosa [247 Posts, 556 Comments] You can save time and electricity using this one simple trick for ironing. Put a sheet of aluminum foil under your ironing board cover before ironing. The reflected heat and insulation from the foil makes it so you don't have to iron the other side (and totally speeds up your ironing process). You don't have to worry about your ironing board cover scorching, it takes a much higher heat for that.

Little Johnny asked and received help from a librarian on how to use the card catalog. In a little while, he approached the librarian again, wanting to know how to spell "tequila." "T-e-q-u-i-l-a," spelled the librarian. Little Johnny thanked her and went back to his search. A short time later he came to the desk, looking quite distraught. "I just can't find it." he said. "What book are you looking for?" the librarian asked. Replied Little Johnny, "Tequila Mockingbird."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Paige Nicole Adams, 24, Phoenix, Arizona Child in diapers locked in closet for 12 hours while mom allegedly took heroin, shoplifted A Phoenix mother has been arrested for child abuse after her three-year-old daughter was found locked in a closet. Paige Nicole Adams, 24, also admitted taking heroin, according to the police report. Adams was initially arrested on September 29th for allegedly shoplifting. When officers asked her if she had any children, Adams reportedly told police she had a daughter who was with friends. That 3-year-old daughter was later discovered to be alone in an apartment and barricaded in a bedroom inside one of the closets. “The victim was crying and had a dirty diaper,” stated the police report. When detectives again contacted Adams, “she admitted to detectives that she was high on heroin at the time she left her child in the apartment alone. She stated that she did not think she would be gone long,” according to the police report. When asked why she did not tell officers about her daughter once she was arrested, “she could provide no real explanation other than things were a blur,” according to the police report. The child had reportedly been left alone for nearly 12 hours. Officers also said they found syringes around the home that were accessible to the child, should she have been able to get out of the closet. Adams is due back in court October 17th. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: MsLL: Re: TRUE STORY Re: TRUE STORY Dear Webby, Re: TRUE STORY ..... < Dear MsLLebsock Whenever you see "TRUE STORY" and it comes from AOL, it is a hoax.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Awesome Cinnamon Rolls By StellaBell [187 Posts, 173 Comments] Prep Time: 1 hour (30 minute rise) Cook Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes Yield: 14 Source: http://ourbestbites.com/2010/06/everyday-cinnamon- rolls/ Ingredients: 1 cup milk 4 Tbsp butter 3 1/2 cup flour 2 1/4 tsp instant yeast 1/4 cup white sugar 1/2 tsp salt 1 egg 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed 1 1/2 Tbsp ground cinnamon 1/2 cup butter, softened Steps: Put 3/4 cup of milk and 4 Tbsp butter into a bowl and microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Then stir in the 1/4 cup cold milk to bring the temperature down a bit. Set aside. In a bowl, whisk together 2 cups of flour, white sugar, yeast and salt. Once the milk is warm (not hot) use a mixer to add the milk and 1 egg to the flour mixture. Mix until well combined. Add another cup of flour and mix until combined. Turn the dough onto a well floured surface. Have a 1/2 a scoop of flour ready, you may not use all of it. Add a bit a flour on top and coat your hands with flour, it will be very sticky at first. Slowly fold in some flour a little at a time until it is easier to work with. Once the flour is workable, but still quite soft, knead the dough for about 5 minutes. Make sure not to add too much flour or else your cinnamon rolls will come out tough. Let to dough rest for about 10 minutes while you whip together the filling. For the filling, simply mix together 1/2 cup of softened butter, 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, and 1 1/2 Tbsp ground cinnamon. On a well floured surface, roll the dough out into a 12x14 inch rectangle. Using a rubber spatula, spread the filling on top of dough, covering it edge to edge. Starting from the long side of the rectangle, roll the dough up and pinch the edge down. Use floss to score the dough to make 14 rolls. Then slide the floss under the roll at the score mark and wrap the two ends up and cross them to cut the dough. Place the rolls into a greased pan. Cover and let sit in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes. In a 350 degree F oven, bake the cinnamon rolls for 15 minutes, or until the top is slightly browned and the center of the dough looks cooked. I don't like very sweet cinnamon rolls, so I like to eat them without icing. But you can make a quick and easy icing by mixing 2 Tbsp softened butter with 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and add milk a splash at a time until you reach the consistency you like. Or you could find a nice cream cheese frosting recipe. Put the icing on while the cinnamon rolls are hot, for the best results.

A zookeeper wanted to get some extra animals for his zoo, so he decided to compose a letter, the only problem, was that he didn't know the plural of 'Mongoose'. He started the letter: "To whom it may concern, I need two Mongeese." No, that won't work, he tried again: "To whom it may concern, I need two Mongooses." Is that right? Finally, he got an idea: "To whom it may concern, I need a Mongoose, and while you're at it, send me a second one." So they sent him two male ones.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Timothy De’Shaun Taylor 23 in jail CHARLESTON, S.C Missing teen had been abducted, gang-raped, shot and fed to alligators. A New York teenager who went missing during a spring break trip in 2009 was abducted, gang-raped at a stash house, shot after trying to escape, and then her body was fed to alligators, according to an FBI agent’s court testimony. Brittanee Drexel of Rochester, N.Y., was 17 when she went to Myrtle Beach, S.C., for spring break. Earlier this year, the FBI said they believed Drexel had been murdered. FBI agent Gerrick Munoz recently testified that several people who claim to have witnessed Drexel’s death have come forward, WMBF reports. Munnoz testified in a detention hearing that Timothy De’Shaun Taylor is one of the main suspects in Drexel’s disappearance. Taylor is being held in an unrelated case involving a robbery in 2011. Inmate Taquan Brown told authorities that he was present at the stash house when Drexel was killed, according to court records. Brown reportedly told Munoz that he saw Taylor, who was 16 at the time, and several others sexually abuse Drexel at the stash house, WMBF reported. Brown also said that at one point, Drexel tried to run away and was pistol whipped. Brown said he heard two shots and assumed Drexel was killed. Munoz testified that several witnesses said Drexel’s body was then put into an alligator pit so it could be eaten. Munoz said several alligator ponds were searched but nothing was found. Another unidentified inmate corroborated that account, Munoz testified. That inmate told Munoz that Drexel was abducted by Taylor and she was in a “human trafficking situation.” (rented out) The inmate said “it became a problem” when there was media coverage about Drexel’s disappearance and she was then “murdered and disposed of.” BL&M ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bob RE: Do I need a Firewall Dear Webby, I recently read an article about DSL users and firewalls, etc. It stated that all one has to do is turn off your file sharing feature off and all would be ok.
