A Nutley man, posing as a cop, was arrested by state authorities after he allegedly attempted to stop an off-duty Woodbridge Police Department sergeant. Richard Goldrick, 68, of Nutley was arrested and charged with attempting to impersonate a police officer. PHOTO COURTESY OF NEW JERSEY STATE POLICE Richard Goldrick, 68, of Nutley was arrested and charged with attempting to impersonate a police officer.

______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Marla Re: How do I install a screensaver Dear Webby, I have read plenty about downloaded screensavers having a hidden "payload" of adware, spyware and malware. I don't want those. How do I install or set up the built in screen savers, that you hinted at? Marla Dear Marla First set up a folder for the pictures, that you want featured in your screen saver, and move or copy those pictures to there. Next carefully double-check those pictures by browsing them with a graphics program to make 100% sure that folder does not contain any pictures, that you don't want shown while your daughter or the minister are visiting. Once you are sure the collection is safe, Open Screen Saver Settings by clicking the Start button clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Screen Saver. Under Screen saver, in the drop-down list, click Photos. (In some versions that is listed as Slide Show) Click Settings to choose the folder you want used by your slide show and select other options. After you make your changes, for example how long a period of inactivity will turn it on, whether you demand a password when coming back, how long each picture is supposed to stay on, etc. click Save. Click OK. That's all there is to it. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ A young man wanted to get his beautiful blonde wife something nice for their first wedding anniversary. So he decides to buy her a cell phone. She is all excited, she loves her phone. He shows her and explains to her all the features on the phone. The next day the blonde goes shopping. Her phone rings and it's her husband "Hi hun," he says, "how do you like your new phone?" She replies, "I just love it! It's so small and your voice is clear as a bell but there's one thing I don't understand though." "What's that, baby?" asks the husband. "How did you know I was at Walmart?" "Just an educated guess." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Soothing a Sore Throat This remedy was given to me by an Ear, Nose and Throat doctor. To get immediate relief of a sore throat, eat Fritos Corn chips and eat popsicles. You cannot gargle enough to reach all the way down the throat that is sore. I get a bag of Fritos and some popsicles and keep them in the freezer until needed. It is not scratchy like you think they would be. Also you can dissolve a chicken bullion cube in cup of water in the microwave and drink when it cools. By patricia laubscher [1] ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ >From Pat in Oz The weather was very hot and pastor Fred wanted desperately to take a dive in a nearby lake. Having forgotten to pack a swimming suit, he chose to skinny dip. After some delightful minutes of cool swimming, a pair of middle-aged ladies walked onto the shore in his direction. He panicked, got out of the water and grabbed a bucket lying in the sand nearby. He strategically positioned the bucket and sighed with relief. The ladies got nearby and looked at him. He felt awkward and wanted to move. Then one of the ladies said: "You know, I have a special gift, I can read minds." "Impossible," said the embarrassed pastor. "You can't really know what I think!" She said: "Yes, I do know. Right now I bet you think that the bucket you're holding has a bottom." ___________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by Walter, the Stonecarver.com An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by April Novak, 30, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
Wisconsin reading teacher arrested for having sex with her 16-year-old student 12 times at high school A Milwaukee-area high school reading teacher had sex with a 16-year-old male student in her classroom a dozen times, officials said. April Novak, 30, was charged with 12 felony counts of sexual assault of a student by school staff Tuesday, a day after her husband filed for divorce, according to court documents cited by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Novak resigned from her job as a reading interventionist at Menomonee Falls High School after police opened an investigation earlier this month, officials with the School District of Menomonee Falls said. April Novak, 30, is charged with 12 felony counts of sexual assault of a student by school staff. Another teacher at the school alerted school administrators Dec. 11, after seeing Novak and the teen embracing and possibly kissing in her classroom, according to her arresting documents. Investigators believe the pair shared intercourse and oral sex on school grounds starting in the middle of October. Novak told detectives she understood the teen was underage but said they had “very strong feelings for each other,” the documents said. Police said she and the teen had agreed to keep their relationship a secret. Novak, who started working at the school in August 2013, was incarcerated on a $100,000 bail, according to the Journal Sentinel. She’ll face up to six years behind bars and a fine of up to $10,000 for each count of sexual assault if she’s convicted.

When it failed to return the following morning, Sue found the beast clinging to a branch about 30 feet up in a spindly tree. Unable to lure it down, she called the fire department. "We don't do that anymore," the woman dispatcher said. When Sue persisted, she was polite but firm. "The cat will come down when it gets hungry enough." How do you know that?" I asked. "Have you ever seen a cat skeleton in a tree?" she said. Two hours later the cat was back, looking for breakfast. ___________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by Walter, the Stonecarver.com An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jennifer Lee Patrick, 32, Crimora, Virginia
Virginia woman was arrested after being reported as dead by child A Crimora woman is facing a felony charge for assault and battery of a police officer after officials say she received treatment for taking "several" prescription drugs. First responders found Jennifer Lee Patrick, 32, at a carwash after her 5-year-old son walked into a Waynesboro restaurant and told the customers there he thought she was dead. Waynesboro police say the boy had walked from Pinky’s Car Wash, 105 East Ave., to Weise’s Kitchen, 130 East Broad St., on Tuesday seeking help for his mother who was in a vehicle with his 6-year-old brother. When found, Patrick was unconscious but alive. The Waynesboro First Aid Crew revived Patrick, who was "highly impaired and incoherent," said Waynesboro Police Sgt. Brian Edwards Patrick allegedly told police she had taken several prescription pills. An officer arrested Patrick after notifying child protective services, charging her with misdemeanor public intoxication and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The children were released into the care of their father. The officer then took Patrick to Augusta Health to be evaluated, but while waiting to be examined she “became difficult to manage,” kicking the officer and attempting to free herself from custody, Edwards said. According to a press release, medical personnel later examined and discharged Patrick from Augusta Health. “While the officer was escorting Patrick to his police car, Patrick continued to flail, causing her pants to fall down,” Edwards said. “She also grabbed the officer’s Taser and tried to un-holster it.” The officer attempted to stun the woman with the Taser, which Edwards said had no effect on the woman, causing the officer to use physical force to gain control of Patrick and place her in his vehicle. Patrick was charged with felony assault and battery of a law enforcement officer and a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice following the incident at Augusta Health, Edwards said.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Paul Re: Block Nigeria? Dear Webby, Would it be a good idea to block any mail, that mentions Nigeria? Pauline Dear Pauline It would be easy to do, but is not a good idea. If you do that, and your daughter sends you an email telling you about a Nigerian scam mail, it would getr blocked too. And similar scams, that don't mention Nigeria, would get through. It is much safer to tell Mailwasher to flag mails, that contain ".doc" and ".docx", for deleting. If they are just flagged for deleting, you still hav a chance to let them through if they are legit.

"Little girl, that sure is a nice fire truck!" the firefighter says. "Thanks, mister," says the little girl. The firefighter looks a little closer and notices the little girl has tied the tow rope to the dog's collar and the rein to the dog's testicles. "Little girl," says the firefighter, "I don't want to tell you how to run your fire truck, but if you were to tie that second rope around the dog's neck, I think you could go faster."

At every opportunity, he passed along outdoor-survival lore. One day they got lost hiking in the deep woods. John tried the usual tactics to determine direction - moss on the trees (There was no moss.), direction of the sun (It was an overcast day). Just as he was beginning to panic, John spotted a small cabin off in the distance. John pulled out his binoculars, studied the cabin, turned, and led them right back to the campsite. "That was terrific," Jill said. "How did you do it?" "Simple," he replied.

______________________________________________________ Reported by Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Adam Pettibone, 28, Auburn, California
Naked burglar hits home owner's friend with getaway vehicle Police in California are trying to determine why a man was naked in frigid temperatures when he entered a home and stole a purse. Auburn police say the homeowner's boyfriend then chased 28-year-old Adam Pettibone on Friday night before Pettibone got into an SUV and drove off. Sgt. Tucker Huey says Pettibone struck the boyfriend with the SUV. The boyfriend declined medical treatment. Auburn is about 30 miles northeast of Sacramento. The temperature dipped into the 30s Friday. Police say they found the SUV a short distance away in front of a home where Pettibone was. They booked him at Placer County Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and burglary. He is being held on $250,000 bail.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Estelle Re: FedEx Dear Webby, I got this email from FedEx Express, with an attachment. I am forwarding it to you. Is it safe to open? At the bottom it has: This email is free from viruses and malware because avast! Antivirus protection is active. https://www.avast.com/antivirus FedEx Express®.docx FedEx Express®.docx Estelle Dear Estelle MailWasher dumped your email. Apparently it objected to the crap in the phony doc, and possibly also to the fact, that the email came from Nigeria. I had a good laugh about it: Dispatched Officer: Mr. Bob Morris E-mail: fe.dexdispatchservice@hotmail.com Contact Phone number: (+234 8022378598) The real fedEx does not use a +234 phone number. They use a 1- 800 number. And they most defiitely don't use a ho'mail address. The FROM address claims to be From: "FedEx Express®" Hilarious! And they want you to send them $180 ! And they don't even use your name, just "Customer" ! The line about Avast is totally phony too. Anybody can add that to an email. Carefully delete the attached docx file, and dump that email. If you click on that docx file, it will most likely unleash a virus hidden in macros. Just delete it, and then delete it out of the Recycle bin, so that it can never be restored. In the future, if you see an email from Nigeria or thereabouts, promising ridiculous amounts of money and requesting money from you, dump it. The same goes for doc and docx attachments. Dump them. If a friend sends an email with a doc or docx attachment, question them why, and tell them, if the content is clean and does not require a virus carrier, to just paste it into email, just like the grown-ups do. Eventually they will get the hint. If they want to create a special song and dance with their info, tell them to lock it in a PDF file. PDF is fairly safe, and hopefully, they will get the hint, that anything other than regular email is not appreciated. Have FUN!

Tie them and hang them to make beautiful music when the cold windy weather would otherwise make you miserable. Supplies: an old stick, twig of a tree, a pencil, or a chopstick gorgeous ribbons and braids acrylic paint and a brush or nail varnish/polish Steps: Paint your keys. Nail varnish will work better than acrylic paint. You will need much patience waiting for several coats to dry. See how I have recycled breakfast cereal packaging to protect my work surface. This has a feel good effect even if it doesn't do much to save the planet. Tie ribbons and braids to the keys Tie the other ends to your stick I used a spent raspberry cane which worked nicely. Tie a final cord for hanging Dangle and enjoy. By ShirleyE [47] If you want a louder and deeper sound, use the empty cores of Christmas wrapping. Make a trough by draping clear plastic between two 2x4's or any boards or books, so that a core can be partially immersed in the trough, after you dump some flour and water glue, or varnish or paint into the trough. You don't have to immerse the whole roll, a quarter of it is enough. Just roll it to wet all of it, then hang it up to dry overnight. After weatherproofing it like that, you can paint it white or chrome and then fake a candy-apple coat by mixing a bit of color with varnish. Hang your tubes with dental-floss and enjoy a deep, relaxing bass wind chime. You can, of course, tune the tubes by shortening some of them. Don't bother using a tuning fork. Just a small difference will make a pleasant melody. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

After a few hours, he finally gets to talk to his father alone behind the barn. "So, son, what did the Army teach you?" asked the father. "Well, they taught me how to kill people," said the son. "With what?" asked father. "We used all kinds of things, like guns and knives, but my favorite was the grenade," said the son. "What's a grenade?" asked the father. "Well, I brought one home to show you. You just pull this pin out and throw it as far as you can," said the son. The son proceeded to give a demonstration. Lo and behold, the son throws the grenade on top of the outhouse. KABOOM!!! The outhouse is demolished. All the lumber and everything else lands in a heap in the yard.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joshua Tyler Emens, 27, Clermont, Florida
Florida inmate gets new charges prior to release from prison A prisoner at Lake Correctional Institution was allegedly caught with synthetic marijuana he reportedly obtained during visitation hours. Joshua Tyler Emens, 27, who was slated to be released on Jan. 1, was hit with new charges Wednesday for possession of a controlled substance and possession of contraband at a state prison. He was taken to the Lake County Jail on the charges and is being held without bond. According to an arrest affidavit, Emens was visiting with his mother, Stacy Rodriguez, at the Clermont prision. He was searched by guards upon leaving the restroom and 43 grams of synthetic marijuana were found in a sandwich bag wrapped in black electrical tape in his back pocket. The affidavit adds Emens later claimed that another inmate named “Hotboy” gave him the drugs during the visitation with the promise of $50 to move it into the compound. Emens was sentenced to two years and six months in prison in March 2014 in Orange County after being convicted of grand theft, trafficking in stolen property and giving false information to a pawnbroker, according to the Florida D epartment of Corrections.

It's also handy for other uses such as on bruises and 'boo-boo's'! Just refill the container with water and keep in your freezer.

Good Morning, ,
Today is Saturday, December 26

Thank You, Richard!
Thank you, Josef!

-25 C, -10 F
Amazing, when I was living in the Yukon, that was just
"refreshing". Perfect for chopping firewood by moon light,
or snowblowing my road with the Kubota, or logging and 
hauling trees with the dogs. 

Now that same temperature is two classes colder: 
Quite chilly!

I went for my walk anyway. It was beautiful walking in the
bright moonlight on the noisy snow and admiring the multitude
of stars. It would have been perfect if some lady old enough
to be out after dark were walking with me. Oh, well.

History ______________________________________________________ Anybody can sympathise with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathise with a friend's success. --- Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900) ______________________________________________________ >From the 1995 Tech Support Pits >From Trisha Trisha: I had run across the term cyber sex a few times lately, so I decided to try to figure out what it meant. I figured it had something to do with the computer, so I started trying to find the sex drive on mine. I looked everywhere, in all the folders on the My Computer section, the add/uninstall software, install hardware part of the control panel then I got out all the manuals and went through them. I finally came to the conclusion that my computer is not equipped with one. So I decided to go to the computer store and see if I could buy one. I wanted to look intelligent and scholarly, so I wore my math hat. Well, the salesperson in the first store was a rather stern looking woman. I gave her the make and model of my computer and asked her if she had any sex drives in stock. She kinda scowled at me and asked me if I was trying to get smart with her. Then she said, rather rudely I thought, that she couldn't help me and walked away. HUH, must not have had any in stock. In the second store, I gave the salesperson the make and model of my computer and asked if they had any sex drives in stock. He kind of snickered and asked if I meant a hard drive. I thought about it for a minute and told him yeah, maybe that, but I think I should already have one installed. He started laughing at me said something about me trying to kill him. "You're killing me!" Something like that and walked away. Hmmmm, must be out here too. Must be hard to keep in stock I wasn't trying to kill him I wasn't even hurting him. The guy in the third store laughed and asked me if I'd just fallen off the turnip truck. I assured him I'd never been on a turnip truck, but I'd fallen off the manure wagon a few times. He mumbled something about that explaining it and walked away laughing. The guy in the fourth store said something like, "boob" under his breath and walked away. Wonder why he only noticed one? Anyway I figured they must not carry them in stores maybe have to order from a catalog or something. So that's why I am writing you for help. I'm sure you tech support people can help me locate my sex drive, and I would appreciate it if you would also help me figure out what to do with it. ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A member of the Country Club asked the lifeguard how he might go about teaching a young lady to swim.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kyle Damato-Kushel, 45, Bridgeport, Connecticut
Connecticut teacher's aide arrested for 2-year affair with student. A married 45-year-old teacher's aide has been accused of having a sexual relationship for more than two years with a 15-year-old boy, whom she had once taught in preschool. Kyle Damato-Kushel, who worked at Wooster Middle School in Bridgeport, Connecticut, had allegedly been having sex with the victim since he was in the seventh grade. Her husband reportedly found out about the alleged illicit affair when he woke up to hear their voices inside their family home and, fearing it was an intruder, called the police. Police found her and the kid at it in the husban's den. Police say Damato-Kushel's DNA was found in the boy's underwear. They say the former aide offered the victim $900 if he didn't reveal their relationship. The teenager told police their first sexual encounter took place in Damato-Kushel's husband's man cave, The Connecticut Post reported. They had sex in a number of other places in their family home and in other places around the town of Stratford, police say. The victim allegedly got Damato-Kushel pregnant at one point but she had a miscarriage. Police say the victim told officers he had been having sex with Damato-Kushel since the summer of 2013. She was arraigned Monday on charges of sexual assault, impairing the morals of a child and tampering with a witness. She didn't enter a plea and went free on a $50,000 bond. Damato-Kushel declined comment as she left the courthouse. According to her Facebook page she has three daughters.

I always ended up getting paint on the hinges no matter how careful I was. It looked awful and needed scraping off when the paint was dry. My most recent paint job throughout the entire house has been so much easier, thanks to simple Vaseline. With a Q-tip, I smeared the hinge bracket full of Vaseline and painted away without worrying about getting paint where it didn't belong. When the paint was dry, I cleaned the hinge bracket with a paper towel and I had a hinge that looked brand new again. I'm thinking that this would work well when I do the window frames. No more taping and no more scraping paint off the glass. Sorry, I haven't got a picture available. We've just moved and I haven't found the camera yet. But I'm sure you can appreciate what I'm talking about, we've all been there. By Mina [25] Vaseline workd very well on hinges, but don't use it on windows! An old painter explained to me that for best sealing you a re supposed to paint about 1/8" onto the glass. To do that neatly, you have to either tape the glass or use a razor to peel the paint off the glass. Paint supply shops sell razors made just for that, with the blade inset the right amount for running it along frames. With metal frames that 1/8" paint might be redundant, but it definitely won't hurt. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Haeli Wey, Austin, Texas
Arrested for Texas teacher Haeli Wey was on a trip to Africa with the family of one of her students when she and the 17-year-old first became intimate, the teenager told police, according to an affidavit obtained by 48 Hours' Crimesider. Wey, a former math teacher at Westlake High School, in Austin, Texas, was arrested on Dec. 17 on two counts of felony improper relationship between educator and student, for a pair of alleged months-long relationships with teenage boys. Police say the alleged crimes occurred during the summer and fall of 2015. Under Texas law, it is illegal for teachers to have sex with students, even if they are over 17 years old, the state's legal age of consent. One victim allegedly told police he met Wey at a "student ministry program" in June, and that later in the summer she accompanied his family on a trip to Africa. "The victim said while in Africa his relationship with Ms. Wey become more personal and on a deeper level," a detective wrote in the affidavit. "The victim stated while in Africa their relationship became physical." The victim allegedly told police he had sex with Wey more than 10 times after the trip, but stopped the relationship after he heard a rumor that she went on a hike with the second alleged victim. Police say the first victim later told his parents about the relationship, and they contacted authorities. "There were a lot of rumors at school about (Wey and the second victim) 'hooking up,'" a detective wrote, adding that the teen at first denied the rumors, which were fueled by alleged Instagram messages between the two. The second victim said Wey invited him on a hike, which lasted about two hours, before they allegedly went to a secluded area and had sexual contact. The victim, asked by a detective if he expected to have sex on the hike, allegedly said yes, and added, "a teacher just doesn't hang out with a student just to hang out." The affidavits also allege that Wey tried to keep the relationships under wraps, at one point instructing the second victim on how to erase their conversations. "Delete our convo (sic) from Instagram please and don't let anyone get a hold of ur (sic) phone," she allegedly texted the victim. And to the first victim, after finding out about the police report, she allegedly asked, "What did you tell them?" And, "Why did you tell them?" Wey was released on bond and is scheduled to appear in court on January 7.

The Christmas story
____________________________________________________ An airline customer service agent, received a call from a lady who wanted to know if she could take her dog on board. The agent told her the dog was welcome, as long as she paid a $50 charge and provided her own kennel. The agent further explained that the kennel needed to be large enough for the dog to stand up, sit down, turn around and roll over. Then the lady said, "I will never be able to teach him all that by tomorrow!" and hung up. ____________________________________________________ As the bus pulled away, Jane realized she had left her purse under the seat. Later she called the company and was relieved that the driver had found her bag. When she went to pick it up, several off-duty bus drivers surrounded her. One man handed her the empty purse, six typewritten pages and a bushel box containing the contents of her purse. "We're required to inventory lost wallets and purses," he explained. "I think you'll find everything there." As she started to put her belongings back into the purse, the man continued, "I hope you don't mind if we watch. Even though we all tried, none of us could fit everything back into your purse. And we'd like to see just how you do it." ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Edgar Cortes, Orlando, Florida
Arrested for drinking in traffic next to a cop Drinking a cold one in traffic rarely ends well. It's especially true when the car in the next lane is labeled "Orlando Police Department." That's how Edgar Cortes found himself in jail shortly before noon Saturday on charges of driving with an open container, carrying a concealed firearm and armed possession of pot with intend to sell, court records show. "As I passed the vehicle...I observed the driver drink from a bottle that appeared to resemble that of an alcoholic beverage," Officer Jose Sanchez wrote. "The bottle's content appeared to be dark yellow in color, reasonably appearing to me to be the color of beer." It turned out to be Corona Extra, a pale lager brewed in Mexico, records show. "Initially Cortes did not want to pass my patrol vehicle and wanted to stay behind avoiding a traffic stop," the arrest report states. "I knew he was doing this because he reduced his speed to almost a complete stop in the roadway." Both drove slowly east on Vineland Road until Cortes passed and Sanchez lit up his patrol car's red lights. Approaching the stopped Honda compact, Sanchez wrote, he drew his pistol and ordered Cortes to raise his hands after watching him push or pull something underneath the driver's seat. He also noticed the smell of unburned marijuana and spotted an open bottle of Corona behind the front passenger seat. "The same bottle I saw Cortes drinking from," he wrote. Cortes subsequently handed over a small bag of marijuana and said there was an open bottle of beer behind the seat. After he was removed from the car, a 9 mm. pistol loaded with 11 cartridges was found under the driver's seat, records state. Cortes was released from the Orange County Jail after posting bail.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Andy Re: How do I send money with PayPal? Dear Webby, I don't want to explain why, but I need to send some money to a grand daughter, instantly, so that she can come home for Christmas. She laughed at me and said "Just use PayPal!" Well, you wrote about PayPal quite a bit. How do I send money to her? Andy Dear Andy Go to http://PayPal.com and sign up. It is fast and easy. They use your credit card to verify that you are over 18. You can also use your bank account for that. Don't worry, it is totally secure. Put your checking account in tehre as fall-back, and a credit card as the second fall-back. A fall-back is used when you don't have quite enough in there for a purchase. Say, you have $35 in there, but want to buy a $45 item, then it reaches to the fall-back for the extra $10. Then you get a chance to stock your account with funds. If you want to send $50 to her, put $55 in there. Always put a bit more than necessary in there and slowly build up a little stash, that Mama doesn't know about. OK, so now you got money in there to use any way you want. You only go through that set-up once in your lifetime. From now on you just sign in with the password, that you have chosen. At the top there is a button that says SEND MONEY. Hit that. Enter recipient PayPal email address. Enter the email address she told you to use. Usually you use an address other than your regular mailing address for PayPal, but it can be the same one. Enter the one she told you to use. Then you Enter the amount. Now you can add a message. The message field looks small, but it scrolls. Then hit SEND. You might have to enter your password once more, and it is done. The money is in her PayPal account, and she can use it to slide it onto her debit card or whatever she needs it for. Keep in mind, instructions like these sound intimidating and more complicated than they are. If you have a credit or debit card or a bank account number ready, the whole set-up is fast and easy.

_____________________________________________________ That reminds me,.... one time as I was doing the Denver airport marathon (arrive at gate A2 and walk to D42). I observed a lady leaning more and more because of a heavy shoulder-slung laptop case. So I showed her how I had slung mine around the handle of the wheeled carry-on, so that it hung nice and low in front of the carry-on and perfectly counter-balanced everything. She was desperate enough to get the weight off her shoulder, but couldn't stand the thought of her precious laptop being behind her, out of her sight. So she PUSHED her wheeled carry-on in front of her like a baby stroller. While that definitely CAN be done, if somebody can walk in a perfectly straight line and has learned to steer with minimal movements, she definitely needed a lot of practise in both of those skills. Her carry-on zig-zagged in front of her like it was frantically trying to escape. To make it worse, every time she turned her head to talk to me, -and she did a lot of that-, she also turned her body a bit and promptly steered her carry-on into the not moving rubber sidewall of the moving walkway. As you can probably imagine, that sudden stop of the PUSHED carry-on caused her to run into it, OOOFFF, and bounce with her generous bumpers into me, OOOOFFF. The more embarrassed and exasperated she got, the more she talked, and the more she talked, the more her carry-on zig-zagged. In the old days I would have gladly hung her big laptop case on top of mine, (-always been "strong like bull, smart like shovel"-) but since 9/11 it is bad form to even talk about touching anybody elses stuff. When we finally got to the departure gate, just in time, and the security guard asked her if she had been in control of her luggage at all times, she blew up. She screeched at the poor guy that NOBODY could be in control of that @#$% cart, that IT was possessed and that it controlled her, and on and on. Guards from other gates started fastwalking over to where we were, with rather concerned looks on their faces, and it appeared like they were going to haul her off. So I explained to them that she had PUSHED her carry-on to be able to keep an eye on it. They of course knew all about that, and relaxed. ___________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Paul Terry, 26, Sonja Moro, 29, Tulsa, Oklahoma
Hornhead was arrested for robbery An Oklahoma man is horning in on the dubious honor of "mugshot of the year." Paul Terry was arrested Saturday after a man told police that he was robbed by two people, one of whom was sporting some very unique forehead tattoos. The victim described a man with devil horns and the words "f*** cops" inked on his noggin, according to NewsOn6.com. Police said 26-year-old Terry robbed the ex-boyfriend of his alleged accomplice, Sonja Moro, 29, Friday evening. When the victim opened the door of his home, Terry and Moro allegedly forced their way inside. The victim told police that Terry threatened to stab him if he didn't give them money. Terry allegedly left after the victim gave him a wallet, according to KRMG.com. Police said Moro stayed behind trying to get more money from the victim. She fled the scene after the man told her he was calling 911. Officers used that information to arrest Terry and Moro Saturday evening, according to Tulsa World. Terry was booked on armed robbery charges and is currently being held in the Tulsa County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond. Moro was booked on the same charge and is also at the Tulsa County Jail on $50,000 bond.

Dear Webby, Those payPal buttons work fine, really slick, especially how they serve up the download. What Kind of programming skills do I need to create one of those? I used to know some C, but have not used it since college, many years ago. Thanks Ellen Dear Ellen None at all. That has all been done for you. All you do is fill in forms with stuff you know, like the location of your download page, and select items like your choice of button. Then it shows you the "code" to paste onto your page or into your emails. Your buttons are saved, and you can retrieve them and slightly modify them for your next item to sell. It is quite simple and civilized. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Tom had been a compulsive worrier for years until he found a way to overcome this problem.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Mike Johnstone, , Des Moines County, Iowa
Iowa anti-gun sheriff who shot his own hand Anti-gun Sheriff Mike Johnstone in Des Moines County, Iowa shot himself in the hand. This is the sheriff that’s known for pushing the anti-gun lie that concealed carry will lead to “wild-west” shootouts. Mike Johnstone didn’t clear his personally owned firearm properly while he was cleaning it at his home. The firearm went off and shot him in the hand. Smooth move buddy. Seems like anti-gun and anti-hunting “activists” are always getting themselves into trouble. The report did not state whom or what he had shot with his personal handgun, just that he was preparing to clean it.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Marie Re: Is PayPal safe? Dear Webby, I heard a lot of horror stories about PayPal, but you seem to be using it without trouble. What's the real story about it? I need some way to accept money for my eBook. Marie Dear Marie Yes, it might be indeed terrible if you don't sign up for it, or if you don't read the instructions. However, if you actually sign up, which is simple and straightforward, and follow basic instructions, it works very well. Look at any eBook for sale on the net, for example my book of all the classic Christmas Stories, that are slowly getting lost. Have you been told every one of them? Have you read every one of them to your kids or grandkids? That is a good example for a simple PayPal button. When a buyer clicks on it, they can pay with a credit/debit card or their PayPal balance, and when they do, the "Thank-You" page gives them the download, and they can instantly download it. It can't be any simpler for the buyer. For the seller it is quite simple too. You just step through and follow the instructions. Each step has explanations, if you need them. You just make a different button for each eBook, that you sell. Don't forget, though, you DO need a web site to put your buttons on. While the buttons work on many email programs, they are blocked by a few. For those, you just send the buyers to a page, where you got your button. Go ahead and click on my eBook and see how it works. The book clickthrough in the email just gets you to the page, where the real PayPal button is. On the web it works for everybody, no matter which email program they use. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Joe Bob, John Boy and Bubba were moving furniture.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joshua Peterson, 31, Leesburg, Florida
Florida felon desperate for Christmas behind bars arrested. Lake County deputies arrested a felon Tuesday who appeared to be getting an early start to his Christmas shopping. Joshua Peterson, 31, was nabbed for numerous thefts across Lake and Sumter counties, with an approximate value of $100,000, Lake County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Fred Jones said. Officials recovered five stolen pickup trucks: a Ford, a Toyota, a Mazda, a GMC and a Dodge. They also recovered a travel trailer, three lawn mowers, three weedeaters, a chainsaw and a four wheeler, from various locations across Lake and Sumter counties. Peterson, who was driving a white Ford F-150 and was towing a trailer, was stopped at a Speedway gas station near U.S. Highway 27 south of Leesburg. The deputy recognized the truck as one that had been reported stolen earlier in the night, he also recognized the driver as Peterson, according to an arrest report. The truck's license plate was reported stolen Monday from a vehicle at Leesburg Regional Medical Center, deputies said. Peterson also had methamphetamine, syringes and pills, the report states. He's been arrested six times previously in Lake County, and faced charges for theft and aggravated assault. He was most recently released from prison in March. He was sentenced on March 18, 2013 to two years and nearly 8 months in prison for 11 crimes, including grand theft and using forged bills, in Lake County. He was sentenced to two years, six months in prison on June 18, 2009 for at least 12 burglary charges. Peterson and another man, both Groveland residents at the time, were accused in 2009 of 15 burglaries, mainly of cars, along the U.S. 27 corridor. Records show he went to prison on July 8, 2009 and was released on March 1, 2011. He returned to prison on April 2, 2013 and was released on March 21 2015.

_____________________________________________________ That remids me.... At a a crowded and busy bus stop, a woman wearing a tight leather skirt was waiting for a bus. As the bus stopped and it was her turn to get on, she became aware that her skirt was too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height of the first step of the bus. Slightly embarrassed and with a quick smile to the bus driver, she reached behind her to unzip her skirt a little, thinking that this would give her enough slack to raise her leg. Again, she tried to make the step only to discover she still couldn't. So, a little more embarrassed, she once again reached behind her to unzip her skirt a little more, and for the second time attempted the step, and, once again, much to her chagrin, she could not raise her leg. With little smile to the driver, she again reached behind to unzip a little more and again was unable to make the step. About this time, a large Texan who was standing behind her picked her up easily by the waist and placed her gently on the top step of the bus. She went ballistic and turned to the would-be Samaritan and screamed, "How dare you touch my body! I don't even know who you are!" The Texan smiled and drawled, "Well, ma'am, normally I would agree with you, but after you unzipped my fly three times, I kinda figured we was friends." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ And that reminds me of ANOTHER bus joke: Reverend George had minor surgery after a bad accident and gets on the bus to get back to the rectory. He looks quite bedraggled and more like he had been in a bar fight than being hit by a cab, and is still a bit groggy from the anesthetic. He staggers up the aisle, and sits down next to an elderly woman. She looks Reverend George up and down and screeches at him: "I've got news for you. You're going straight to hell!" The Reverend George jumps up out of his seat and shouts: "Hold it, driver! I'm on the wrong bus! I don't wanna go where SHE goes!" ____________________________________________________ One of the world's greatest scientists was also recognized as the original absent-minded professor. One day, on board a train, he was unable to find his ticket. The conductor said, "Take it easy. You'll find it." and continued his rounds. When the conductor returned, the professor still couldn't find the ticket. The conductor recognized the famous scientist and said, "I'm sure you bought a ticket. Forget about it." "You're very kind," the professor said, "But I must find it, otherwise I won't know where to get off the train." ____________________________________________________

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 even kiss the stupid stone."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Grace An, 18, Gainesville, Georgia
Florida mom arrested after she left baby bound and gagged with tape in car. A Georgia mother has been arrested on child cruelty charges after law enforcement discovered her 16-month-old bound with cellophane and packing tape in the back seat of her vehicle. The toddler’s mother, 18-year-old Grace An, was later arrested and charged with first-degree child cruelty, reckless conduct, and false imprisonment. According to the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called after somebody reported a suspicious looking vehicle parked outside of a suburban home outside of Gainesville around 6:45 p.m. on Wednesday. When they arrived at the scene, they were greeted by a local locksmith who said he had been called by somebody that he assumed had been locked out of their car. After walking closer to the locked vehicle, however, he noticed a small child bound by cellophane and packaging tape in the back seat. “The locksmith indicated that while he was unlocking the vehicle he discovered a small child bound by tape in the back seat,” police revealed in a press release. When deputies checked inside the seemingly abandoned car, they “found (the child) lying in the back seat with cellophane and packing tape wrapped around the child’s mouth, hands and feet.” Fortunately, an ambulance was called and the child was quickly rushed to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, where he was soon released into the custody of the Department of Family and Children Services. According to the Sheriff’s Office, Grace An was later picked up and taken to the Hall County Jail, where she remains without bond.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dani Re: Get Rid of W10 nagger pop-up Dear Webby, Dear Webby, A year ago I had a new computer made with Windows 7. Now I keep getting a pop up trying to get me to upgrade to Windows 10. Is there a way to stop the pop up? Thank you so much. Merry Christmas and a Blessed, Healthy and Happy New Year. Dani Dear Dani The nuisance pop-up is just to remind you of how big a nuisance Microsoft is. Because there is practically no demand for W10 but a huge demand for getting rid of the nuisance nagger, the good people at GitHub created a little program to take care of it once and for all. Most other remedies are only temporary, and then the nagger mysteriously re-appears. This one is permanent. It is not instant. The GitHub remedy searches the computer for hidden seeds, that could restart the nagger. That takes a few minutes. Here is the program in ZIP form. You have to download it and unzip it, and then run it. I made a short URL for you: http://tinyurl.com/No10Nagger If you want to see what is in the short URL, the long one is: https://github.com/rn10950/I-Dont-Want-Windows- 10/releases/download/4.0/I_Dont_Want_Windows_10_v4.zip The program works well. I have used it myself. Have FUN! DearWebby Ted's daughter had adopted a stray cat. To his wife's distress, the cat began to use the back of their new sofa as a scratching post. "Don't worry," Ted reassured her. "I'll have him trained in no time." Nettie watched for several days as Ted patiently "trained" their new pet. Whenever the cat scratched, Ted deposited him outdoors to teach him a lesson. The cat learned quickly. For the next 16 years, whenever he wanted to go outside, he scratched the back of the sofa. ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com DIY Lazy Susan with Marbles Make your own incredibly inexpensive Lazy Susan!

Then the old country doctor, who had just come in, interrupted in her usual gruff and surly manner. She said: "8 in 10 000 is silly! If 10 000 stop using the hormone pills, you'll see 8000 divorces and 800 murders! 8 Heart attacks. Those I can deal with nowadays, but not 10 000 grouchy dingbats!"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Patrick Rempe, 24, Vero Beach, Florida
Vero Beach man arrested after he attempted jail break-in, becam entangled in razor wire A man high on Flakka rammed the fence at the Indian River County Jail and attempted to scale the fence, but became stuck at the top, authorities said. A man high on a synthetic stimulant rammed the fence at the Indian River County Jail and became entangled in razor wire when he attempted to scale the fence early Tuesday, the Indian River County Sheriff's Office said. Patrick Rempe, 24, of the 2200 block of 53rd Avenue, Vero Beach, had to be assisted out of the wire by deputies and paramedics before he was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and several other charges. Rempe had been using the drug Flakka, Flowers said. "The people who are on this drug lose control of themselves," Flowers said. Flakka is a synthetic drug that has also been compared to cocaine and methamphetamine, law enforcement officials said. It causes hallucinations and euphoria for its users, but can also cause paranoia, confusion and psychosis. The Sheriff's Office estimates the jail sustained at least $5,000 worth damage to the doors and the fence. "The good thing is, we were never compromised," Flowers said. Even if Rempe had not been entangled in the wire, he would have had to scale a second fence, also topped with razor wire, before reaching the jail building, which would have been locked, Flowers said. About 4:15 a.m. Tuesday, Rempe rammed his 2002 Toyota into the front doors of Building C, barely missing a deputy who was outside the jail. The glass on the doors shattered, but the doors held up, Flowers said. Rempe then drove at a high rate of speed and rammed into the fence outside of building E, Flowers said. With the fence tipping slightly toward the building, Rempe tried to scale it and became stuck. Rempe spit on one of the deputies after being removed, Flowers said. Rempe was treated at Indian River Medical Center before he was booked into the jail. He told deputies he just wanted to visit friends who were in the jail. Rempe was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, battery on a law enforcement officer, three counts of felony criminal mischief, leaving the scene of a crash with property damage and driving under the influence.

DearWebby Working as a secretary at an international airport, my sister had an office adjacent to where security temporarily holds suspects. One day security officers were questioning a man when they were suddenly called away on another emergency. To the horror of my sister and her colleagues, the man was left alone in the unlocked room. After a few minutes, the door opened, and he began to walk out. Summoning up her courage, one of the secretaries barked, "Get back in there, and don't come out until you're told!" The man scuttled back inside and slammed the door. When the security people returned, the woman reported what had happened. Without a word, an officer walked into the room and released one very frightened telephone repairman. ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Mushroom and Cheese Orzo Risotto People tend to get intimidated by the thought of making risotto. I can assure you, this version is a super easy method that results in a very elegant, delicious dish. Approximate Time: 20 minutes Yield: 4 servings Ingredients: 2 tsp oil 3/4 cup sliced or chopped mushrooms 1/4 cup chopped onions 2 cloves minced garlic 2 cups dried orzo pasta 3 cups chicken broth 1/3 cup any type of cheese (I used aged cheddar here) salt and pepper to taste 1 Tbsp butter Steps: Add oil to frying pan over high heat. Cook mushrooms, onions and garlic until browned, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add dried orzo. Stir often until pasta is light golden brown, a few minutes. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer. Stirring often. It will take about 8 minutes or so until orzo is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. If its too thick or dry, add a bit of water at a time until you reach desired consistency. If too wet, cook a bit longer. Turn off heat then drop in cheese, butter, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir until cheese melts. I'm getting hungry just writing this! Enjoy! By attosa [147] ______________________________________________________

One lady said "My husband just won't go to church with me, I think he's going to go to Hell." This led to talk around the table and it was generally agreed that, for one reason or another, all the husbands were going to end up in Hell. So, then the housewives started speculating about themselves. One woman said "I try to be good - I'm sure I'll make it to Heaven." One after the other, and all at the sime time, as is common in these gatherings, they enumerated their good deeds and their sufferings and reasons why they would surely go to heaven. Then they noticed that one of the ladies wasn't saying anything. They looked at her and said "You're always soo a kind and good, surely you're going to Heaven?" "Not me," she says, "Tonight I am going to go burn down a church or two. Maybe a rectory too." They were shocked and asked "Why??" "Well, none of the men I like are going to go to heaven.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by John Parsley, 62, Gonzales, Texas
Texan arrested after he drives his pickup into Alva, Oklahoma hotel lobby, on perpose. A Texas man accused of driving his pickup into the lobby of an Alva hotel is facing felony charges in the incident. John Parsley, 62, of Gonzales, Texas, faces two felony counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and one count of malicious injury to property over $1,000, according to oscn.net. Woods County District Attorney Chris Boring filed charges late Monday afternoon. According to an Alva Police Department incident report, Parsley drove his 2006 Sierra GMC into the lobby of Alva Comfort Inn and Suites on Thursday afternoon after asking for a refund on two transactions. According to the report, Parsley, was told the card he used initially was declined both times. “Parsley stated he had paid cash for the last two nights because his card was declined both nights,” according to the report. Alva Police Officer Wade Suffon reported he tried to explain to Parsley that he would go into the hotel to discuss the situation with management. “Parsley rolled his window down and looked at me as I was speaking to him trying to explain to him I was going to go inside to speak with the manager,” according to Suffon's report. “I observed Parsley reach up and place his vehicle in drive and accelerate rapidly, crashing into the hotel front entrance and into the lobby.” Parsley left the vehicle in the lobby and walked out with his hands up, according to the report. He was arrested and is being held in Woods County Jail.

They all want me to click on a link for details. Well, as you can probably tell from my seasoned looks, I have not fallen off the turnip wagon last night. So naturally I did not click on any link. My question is where did those benighted scammers get my email address, and how can I stop getting those phony invoices? Olga Dear Olga Most of those phony invoices are from Russia. If you use MailWasher, and you have not set it to send stuff like that to hell automatically, it would tell you something like blah, blah, blah Mr. Kenton Mendez Accounting Specialist| Bank of America, N.A., Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. invoice_14318911_scan.doc If mailwasher could laugh out loud, it would. First, the .ru (Russia) in the FROM filed knocks it out. I never get legitimate mail from Russia, so I won't let them waste my time. Then ....scan.doc in the BODY knocks it down to hell. I had to look in the Recycle Bin for that example. My MailWasher dumps those automatically, without showing them to me.

____________________________________________________ Adam and Eve had an ideal marriage. He didn't have to hear about all the men she could have married, and she didn't have to hear about the way his mother cooked. ____________________________________________________ The Indians asked their Chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or not. Not really knowing the answer, the chief replied that the winter will be cold and that the members of the village should collect wood to be prepared. Being a good leader, he then drove to town, called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is this winter to be cold?" The man on the phone responded, "This winter is indeed going to be very cold." So the Chief went back to encourage his people to collect even more wood to be prepared. A week later he called the National Weather Service again, and asked again, "Is it going to be a very cold winter?" "Yes," the man replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter." The Chief went back to his people and ordered them to go out and bring back every scrap of wood they could find. Two weeks later he called the National Weather Service again. "Are you absolutely sure that this winter is going to be very cold?" "Absolutely" the man replies, "the Indians are collecting wood like crazy!" ____________________________________________________

Paranoid Florida man was arrested after he called 911 on himself. A Florida man, accused of growing marijuana in a storage unit was arrested after he called 911 on himself. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Jasper Harrison was in the storage unit when he heard a helicopter hovering over the area in Edgewater, Florida. Worried that he’d soon be arrested, he called 911. “I’m the guy they’re looking for,” he told the dispatcher. As it turned out, police weren’t in the area looking for Harrison. Instead, they were there investigating the suspicious but unrelated death of a man on the same street. The helicopter Harrison heard while in the storage unit was that of a television station reporting on the suspicious death, police say. When they responded to the storage unit, police found marijuana growing inside it. He now faces charges of cultivating cannabis within 1,000 feet of a school, and possession with intent to sell. He was released from jail on bond.

The next morning, packing to return home, the couple couldn't close a large suitcase. The groom said, "Darling, you get on top and I'll try." That didn't work. Figuring they needed more weight on the lid, she said, "Sweetheart, you get on top and I'll try." Still no success. Then he said, "Look. Let's both get on top and try."

By the end of the night, the bar is full of people watching this amazing duck, still dancing and letting out an odd quack now and again. The barman realizes that he hasn't had business this good in a long time. Business is so good, in fact, that he offers to buy the duck from the man. The man tells the bartender that he can have the duck for 500 pounds. The barman thinks it is a bit expensive, but agrees to buy the duck anyway. After selling the duck, the man goes home, leaving a crowded pub watching his dancing duck. Later that night, the man gets a telephone call from the barman, who exclaims that the duck is a great success and that he has earned his money back in the amount of drinks he has sold.

His congregation suggested that he consult a house-bound 98 year old man, who was one of the original founders of their temple. The rabbi hoped the elderly man would be able to tell him what the actual temple tradition was, so he went to the nursing home with a representative of each faction of the congregation. The one whose followers stood during Shema said to the old man, "Is the tradition to stand during this prayer?" The old man answered, "No, that is not the tradition." The one whose followers sat asked, "Is the tradition to sit during Shema?" The old man answered, "No, that is not the tradition."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Paula Johannessen, 42, Columbus, Ohio
Ohio woman arrested after eating cereal during high speed chase A motorist who was spotted eating cereal as she drove along an Ohio interstate led police on a 30-mile chase that ended with her arrest on multiple criminal charges. According to investigators, Paula Johannessen was spotted driving erratically around 2:30 AM Tuesday on Interstate 70 outside Columbus. After pulling over Johannessen’s car, a Madison County Sheriff’s Office deputy noticed that the 42-year-old was "eating a bowl of cereal as she was driving." After Sergeant Tim Winebrenner told Johannessen that she was stopped for weaving across the road, she “stated that she had been eating her cereal and didn’t mean to go over the lines” according to a criminal complaint. During the traffic stop, Johannessen sped away from the cop, prompting a high-speed chase that moved into a neighboring county. At times driving over 100 mph, Johannessen ran over “stop sticks” that cops deployed to deflate her tires. After her shredded left front tire came off the car, Johannessen continued to drive on the rim. But when the vehicle lost its transmission and became disabled, Johannessen bolted from the auto (though she was quickly apprehended by pursuing officers). Seen above, Johannessen was charged with fleeing or eluding police, a felony, and obstructing justice, a misdemeanor. She is also facing raps for reckless driving and driving with a suspended license. Investigators have not identified Johannessen’s preferred brand of cereal. Johannessen pleaded guilty earlier this year to a felony heroin possession charge, for which she was sentenced to five years probation. A judge also suspended her driver’s license for six months and ordered, “No drugs, no alcohol, no bars.” A court filing notes that if Johannessen violates her probation, she will be sent to state prison for one year.

_____________________________________________________ An old fellow came into the hospital almost dying due to an infected gallbladder. After what seemed aeons of tests and preparations, the gall bladder surgeon removed the gall bladder without any fuss or problem and had the patient sent up to the post-op ward. The charge nurse there insisted that all patients be up and walking in the hall the day after surgery, to help prevent blood clots forming in the leg veins. The nurses walked the patient in the hall as ordered, even though the head nurse had to raise her mighty voice, once, and keep her stern gaze on him the first three days as two student nurses half carried, half dragged him up and down the hallway. On the fifth day they were able to walk him hangin on to only one nurse, and on the tenth day the nurse noticed that the reason he was hanging on now had not much to do with balance and support any more. After two weeks the patient was ready to go home. His family came to pick him up and thanked the surgeon profusely for what he had done for their father, telling him he was a miracle worker. The surgeon was pleased and appreciated the thanks, but told them that it was really a simple operation and that they had been lucky to get him into the hospital time. "Oh no,doctor, you don't understand," they said, "Our father hasn't walked in over ten years!" ___________________________________________________

She was sure she'd have no trouble finding a new position, because of the nursing shortage in her area. She e-mailed cover letters to dozens of potential employers and attached her resume to each one. Two weeks later, Catherine was dismayed and bewildered that she had not received even one request for an interview. Finally she received a message from a prospective employer that explained the reason she hadn't heard from anyone else. It read: "Your resume was not attached as stated. I do, how- ever, want to thank you for the meatloaf-lasagna recipe." ____________________________________________________ Ray had just reached his 175th birthday last week. Surrounded by reporters, he was asked, "Excuse me, sir, but how did you come to live to be 175?" Ray answered, "It was easy. I just never argue with anyone." A reporter shot back, "That's crazy. It had to be something else -- diet, meditation, or *something*. Just not arguing won't keep you alive for 175 years!" The old fella stared hard at the reporter for several seconds. Then he shrugged. "Hmmm. Maybe you're right." ____________________________________________________

What to do when my email address is forged as sender? 



Good Morning, ,
Today is Monday, December 14

For a few days I had a terrible and mysterious pin at the
left knee, and could not figure out what caused it. Friends
had all kinds of helpful suggestions, heat, ice, organic 
cherry juice, and so on. 

I still went for my daily walk. though fopr a couple days
a different route. Then last night I went again the old
route. Getting close to home I stepped off the sidewalk
and onto the street to bypass a frozen puddle.

That reminded me that I had slipped there, done some wild
acrobatics and twerked the moon, but landed back on my feet.
Looking at that frozen puddle I realized that I had simply
put my knee out and just pulled a ligament or something.

Once I had it figured out and knew it was not some 
mysterious, long lasting illness, everything got better
quickly. I am now already walking without any limping.

Have FUN!

In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide." And for plenty of good reasons, since: 1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting 2. it is a major component in acid rain 3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state 4. accidental inhalation can kill you 5. it contributes to erosion 6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes 7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients 8.

______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Catherine Re: Spam using my address Dear Webby, I send mail to myself quite often as a lazy and quick way to sorta file stuff temporaritly. That way I can send memos and ideas from any machine, and file it properly, when I get to my main machine. That seems to work well. Lately, though, I get a lot of spam pretending to be from me. I do have MailWasher, and it works very well, but how do I get it to dump mail, that has my address as the sender, but only if it is phony? Thanks Catherine Dear Catherine A lot of us do that for fast memos or archiving. The trick to use is the same as what I have used with the Humor Letter since about 1994: Consistent subject line start. You may have noticed that the subject line of the Humor Letter always starts with "Humor: ", no matter what the topics are. That allows you to filter it and never delete it, no matter what. Do the same with your "Inter Machine Memos" or whatever you call them. Start the subject line with "` " or some easy symbol and a space. Then make a filter telling MailWasher that IF the sender is (your email address) and IF NOT the Subject line starts with "` ", then mark that mail for deleting. Scoot that filter up to the top. You probably have already white-listed your own address, if not, go ahead and white-list it (Friend). Have FUN! DearWebby A Preacher went to his church office on Monday morning and discovered a dead donkey in the church yard. He called the police. Since there did not appear to be any foul play, the police referred the Preacher to the health department. They said since there was no health threat that he should call the sanitation department. The manager said he could not pick up the mule without authorization from the mayor. Now the Preacher knew the mayor and was not to eager to call him. The mayor had a bad temper and was generally hard to deal with, but the Preacher called him anyway. The mayor did not disappoint. He immediately began to rant & rave at the pastor and finally said, "Why did you call me any way? Isn't it your job to bury the dead?" The preacher paused for a brief prayer and asked the Lord to direct his response. He was led to say, "Yes, Mayor, it is my job to bury the dead, but I always notify the next of kin first, since they get to decide what kind of burial they will pay for!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Fork to Hang Christmas Stocking My roomie has a lovely fireplace.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Chelsea Sperry, 31, Fairbanks, Alaska
Alaskan arrested after cops find "wad" of cash, drugs inside her. An Alaska woman appears to have set the record for the amount of counterfeit currency and narcotics hidden inside body orifices, according to court records. Fairbanks police were dispatched last month to an adult novelty store after a clerk called 911 to report that a couple sought to purchase merchandise with a counterfeit $100 bill. Before cops could get to the Castle Megastore, suspect Chelsea Sperry, 31, left the business with a “large wad of cash” provided by her boyfriend (who waited for police to arrive). Shortly after Sperry drove away from the business, she was pulled over by police who had been given her description by the store employee. When a check revealed that Sperry was driving with a suspended license, she was arrested and transported to the Fairbanks Correctional Center. At the jail, a corrections officer observed Sperry “making furtive movements toward her vagina,” according to a criminal complaint. Sperry was then “put through a body scan,” which revealed that she “had items concealed in her vagina and/or anus.” A female corrections officer subsequently “removed a wad of cash and drugs from inside” Sperry. The haul included six $100 bills, three $50 bills, and seven $20 bills, all of which were counterfeit. The $890 in funny money, however, was supplemented by a genuine $10 bill that “was discovered in Sperry’s anus.” Sperry’s vagina, investigators noted, also held two baggies of methamphetamine, a baggie containing seven morphine sulfate pills, and two baggies containing a “brown tarry substance” that tested positive for heroin. The corrections officer also recovered a “clear plastic baggie” containing 40 smaller baggies that were similar in size to the ones containing the meth and heroin. The smaller baggies, the complaint notes, are “commonly used for the distribution of smaller amounts of heroin and methamphetamine.” Pictured above, Sperry was indicted on felony narcotics and forgery charges, as well as two misdemeanor counts related to driving with a suspended license. Sperry, who is free on $5000 bond, has been arrested twice this year for theft, though charges were subsequently dropped in each case. A police search of Sperry’s boyfriend, Jeffrey Martin, turned up several hundred dollars and a digital scale, though he does not appear to have been charged.

Add water to about 1 inch or 1and a half inches. Put the lid on the skillet, and bring the water to a boil. Then reduce the heat to simmer, making certain that the skillet has smoldery, foggy water inside of it, kind of like a "spa." Then take the lid off, and crack the eggs, and gently put them in the "smoldery, foggy" water. Put the lid back on the skillet. Let the eggs "steam" for several minutes. When they are done to your likeness, remove them to a plate or plates. You should now have very pretty poached eggs that are either oval in shape, or round, but not bunched up, and ragged like they often show on tv. Source: I discovered this on my own.

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Wayne An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Albert Luna, 19, Coachella, California
California man arrested after he car jacks FedEx truck, but did not know how to drive it. A 19-year-old man is behind bars today for allegedly trying to carjack a FedEx delivery truck. Albert Luna was being held in lieu of $60,000 bail at the Riverside County jail in Indio, where he was booked on suspicion of carjacking. The attempted carjacking was reported about 3:45 p.m. Saturday in the 85000 block of Araby Avenue, sheriff's Sgt. John Clark said. A delivery driver was parked in front of a home, unloading packages, when Luna allegedly got into the truck and demanded the keys, the sergeant said. The driver gave the suspect the keys and ran to a nearby home to call authorities, Clark said.

The method was simple; punch a hole in one end of the eggs with a pin before dropping them into the water. This method works very well. Note: I always peel my eggs under running water. Once water gets between the shell membrane and the egg, the shell slides off easily, sometimes in as little as three or four large pieces.

Floriduh drunk hit-and-run driver, who was turned in by her On-Star calling the cops Police responded to a hit-and-run in the 500 block of Northwest Prima Vista Boulevard on Monday afternoon. The victim, Anna Preston, said she was struck from behind by a black vehicle that took off. Preston was taken to the hospital with back injuries. Around the same time, police dispatch got an automated call from a vehicle emergency system stating the owner of a Ford vehicle was involved in a crash and to press zero to speak with the occupants of the vehicle. The person in the vehicle, Cathy Bernstein, told dispatch there had been no accident, that someone pulled out in front of her and that she was going home. She said she had not been drinking and didn't know why her vehicle had called for help. Police went to Bernsteins's home on Northwest Foxworth Avenue and saw that her vehicle had extensive front-end damage and silver paint from Preston's vehicle on it. Bernstein's airbag had also been deployed. Police said Bernstein again denied hitting another vehicle, saying she had struck a tree. After further discussions, police said Bernstein admitted to the hit-and-run. She also admitted that she had talked to someone at Ford and told them she had not been in an accident. It was later discovered that Bernstein had been involved in another accident prior to the one with Preston and was fleeing from that incident. Bernstein was arrested and taken to the St. Lucie County Jail.

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Lillemor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD AND a Darwin Award has been earned by Matthew Riggins, 22, Brevard County Floriduh
Floriduh burglar fed himself to an alligator A suspected burglar jumped into a Florida lake apparently hiding from law enforcement before an 11-foot alligator killed him, investigators said Monday. His hand and foot reportedly turned up inside the animal's stomach. Brevard County Sheriff's Maj. Tod Goodyear says 22-year- old Matthew Riggins told his girlfriend he would be in Barefoot Bay to commit burglaries with another suspect. Authorities received calls Nov. 13 about two suspicious men in black walking behind homes and investigated. Riggins was reported missing the next day. Goodyear said sheriff's divers recovered Riggins' body 10 days later in a nearby lake, and that the injuries suggested the alligator had pulled him below the surface. "He hid in the wrong place," resident Laura Farris told Bay News 9. Authorities said Riggins drowned and the alligator, which behaved aggressively toward divers, was trapped and euthanized. Florida Today reports a second person was taken into custody.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Eloise Re: Spreadsheet Sunday Dear Webby, You know more about spreadsheets than my professor does, and you don't contradict yourself twice a minute. I followed your instructions for the lady who wanted a spreadsheet with graph for her weight without any problem, and even dressed it up nice and colorful. Now I wanted a bar to indicate Sundays. The professor got all flustered and told me it was a dumb idea to watch my weight differently on Sundays. I guess he didn't know. Can you please tell me? Thanks Eloise Dear Eloise At the top of the next free column, for example D, paste: =IF(WEEKDAY(A1,1)=1,25,"") What that does is IF the date in A1 is a day 1 (Sunday) then put 25 into D1, otherwise put nothing in there. Copy that down colund D as far as you want. Weekday (A1,1) checks the date in A1, and uses schedule 1 which has Sunday as day 1. The IF wrapped around that checks if we get a 1 (Sunday), and if we do, it puts a 25 into that cell, IF not, then it puts nothing into that cell. "" is nothing. If you were checking for a Saturday, you would use 7 =IF(WEEKDAY(A1,1)=7,25,"") In the graph, right-click, Source Data, add a series. Smear Column D as far down as the other columns, hit ENTEr, and all Sundays have a bar from 0 to 25. Right-click one of them and give it a nice Sunday color. That's all there is to it. Have FUN!

When you peel your potatoes, don't throw out the skins. Instead, make this super easy, super yummy appetizer. It only takes a few ingredients. As a bonus, potato skins contain all the best health benefits, packed with B vitamins, vitamin C, potassium and calcium. Score! Approximate Time: 25 minutes Ingredients: leftover potato peels 1 tsp oil salt, pepper (any seasonings you like) 1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese chives (optional) Steps: Preheat oven to 400°F. I use my toaster oven. Toss skins, oil and seasonings together and lay in a thin layer on a cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. I like to broil them for a few minutes at the end to get the super crispy! Remove, sprinkle with Parmesan and optional chives. So good!

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Wayne An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Majed Alhamad, 23, Los Angeles, California
Drunken Saudi tourist exposed himself, spilled cocaine on Aspen taxi driver A Saudi Arabian man allegedly cursed an Aspen taxi driver and exposed himself to the man before spilling cocaine on him during a ride to the St. Regis Hotel last weekend, according to court documents. Majed Alhamad, 23, later admitted he was intoxicated and told Aspen police officers “he wanted to go ‘extreme’ while in Aspen,” according to an affidavit filed in District Court on Friday. The 60-year-old driver for High Mountain Taxi told police that Alhamad — whose booking sheet lists him as a student in Los Angeles — offered him cocaine “a number of times” on the ride early Friday morning to the St. Regis, but the driver refused, the affidavit states. “(The driver) stated this angered Alhamad,” according to the affidavit written by an Aspen police officer. “(The driver) said that Alhamad used vulgar language and derogatory racial terms ... and ‘f---ing American’ while in the vehicle.” The taxi driver also said Alhamad “exposed his genitals to him” and “opened the baggie of cocaine and spilled it on him,” the affidavit states. “(The driver) stated that he did not want anything to happen to the individual but felt the need to report the incident to law enforcement,” according to the officer’s affidavit. When officers spoke with Alhamad and his friend, a sergeant recognized them because he’d helped them get a taxi back to their hotel earlier in the night. Alhamad admitted to buying the cocaine for $100 from someone on the street he didn’t know, the affidavit states. “Alhamad stated he knew it was not real cocaine and stated it was baby powder,” according to the affidavit. “I asked Alhamad how he knew it was not cocaine and he said it smelled like baby powder and he had done cocaine in the past.” An officer tested the cocaine baggie and received a “presumptive positive” on it for cocaine, according to the affidavit. Alhamad admitted to using derogatory words toward the driver but said he didn’t spill the white powder on him, according to the affidavit. The officer wrote that Alhamad smelled of alcohol. “Alhamad said he wanted to go ‘extreme’ while in Aspen but will have to pay for this incident,” the affidavit states. Alhamad was charged with felony possession of cocaine and harassment. If he ever goes back to Saudi Arabia, he is likely to face dire consequences.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Frank Re: Ghostery Dear Webby, Now I have a BIG problem with receiving your daily newsletter. I've not received it the last 4 - 5 days. I utilize Mailwasher and have for years. Your newsletter is flagged as 'never mark for delete'. Late last week I installed the following.... https://www.ghostery.com/ and checked the column to block at 'trackers' because I get tired of seeing all the ads, etc. I don't know how that would stop mail from going to the Cox server but I'm not a genius about those things. I'm getting emails from friends and since I don't do much on line shopping I cannot tell whether or not businesses are blocked. The last business email was from Amazon on Dec. 4 about the same time I installed the program. I'm able to see you newsletter and vote daily but I do like to get my personal edition. If I need to delete ghostery.com I will but it has been nice not to get all that junk. Perhaps I can accept some tracking but I don't know which to change and which to keep. Need your assistance if possible. If you feel it is my ISP how do I go about getting their co-operation and have any others with a Cox.net ISP complained. How will I know if you respond IF my ISP has blocked your address? Perhaps a note in Wednesdays letter would tell me. Peace Frank Dear Frank You are in the list, and your personalized newsletter goes out towards you every night. Ghostery is mostly a tracking system reporting on you, and does a bit of cookie control to make you think it is a benefit to you. Unlike Malwarebytes it does not stop real malware. If you want to dump cookies, CrapCleaner has done that quite nicely for fifteen years, maybe more, without any snooping or reporting whatsoever. However, Ghostery just reports on your browsing to the advertising industry. I don't see how it would interfere with your email. Browsing and email are totally separate, like highways are separate from railroads. If your email stopped on the same day as you attached the Ghostery snoop&report add-on, that is probably just a coincidence. Have a look in the MailWasher Recycle Bin. If the Humor Letter is NOT in there, then it got dumped before it ever got to you. In that case, pitch a temper tantrum at your ISP. Please tell me if and when you get this letter. Have FUN!

The celebrants were impressed and asked how he managed to keep up his rigorous fitness regime. "Well, you see, my wife and I were married 75 years ago. On our wedding night, we made a solemn pledge.

Twelve Days of Christmas (funny)
____________________________________________________ It was the day of the big sale. Rumors of the sale (and some advertising on the net) were the main reason for the long line that formed in front of the store by 8:30, the store's opening time. A small man pushed his way to the front of the line, only to be pushed back, amid loud and colorful curses. On the man's second attempt, he was punched square in the jaw by a slightly overweight lady, knocked around a bit, and then thrown to the end of the line again. As he got up the second time, he said to the person at the end of the line, "That does it! If they hit me one more time, I'm not opening the store!" ____________________________________________________ Children are natural mimics, who act like their parents despite every effort to teach them good manners. ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Lillemor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by De’Anthony A. Wiley, 20, Shawnee, Kansas
Armed robber kills store owner, claims he was entitled to 'self-defense' The widow of a Kansas gun-shop owner killed in a violent shootout with four armed robbers in January doesn't mince words when it comes to the issue of guns and the role they play in self-defense. “The fact of the matter is, society has gotten to the point where we have to defend ourselves," Becky Bieker to KCTV-TV. De’Anthony A. Wiley claims he had no choice and was entitled to return fire in "self-defense" while trying to flee the ensuing gun battle with the store's owner, Jon Bieker. Court papers filed on Thursday by Wiley's attorney seek protection by statutory immunity against his felony murder charge, reports WDAF-TV. Wiley claims after he communicated his intent to surrender, Bieker continued firing upon him and his three accomplices. Court papers say Wiley was shot in the spine and paralyzed, leaving him unable to escape. Wiley's attorney argues because he exhausted reasonable means to escape, he was entitled to use deadly force in self-defense. Prosecutors say Wiley and his cohorts plotted for several days before entering "She's a Pistol", which specializes in providing personal protection items for women. The men apparently thought Becky Bieker was working alone when they pointed a gun at her and started shouting demands. They punched her, breaking her nose. One of the men jumped over the counter to stuff a backpack with guns. They didn't see Jon Bieker in the back room. Surveillance video captured the entire gun battle inside the store. As Becky falls to the floor, Jon bursts from the back firing his weapon. Jon managed to shoot all three of the suspects. One of the injured suspects fled along with the getaway driver. Wiley remained in the store and continued to exchange gunfire with Jon, who was killed when a bullet pierced his aorta. Becky regained her composure and emptied her weapon into Wiley, critically injuring him. Prosecutors said Wiley, who has admitted robbing the store, was identified on the surveillance tape as the man who killed Jon. His co-defendants, Hakeem Malik, Londro Patterson and Niquan Midgyett, have pleaded not guilty and will stand trial on charges that include first-degree murder. Police believe the men were also behind a string of convenience store armed robberies in the area in the weeks before the shootout, reported KCTV-TV. Wiley's defense lawyers responded by filing the bombshell motion that he was "entitled to use deadly force" against the Biekers. The claim reads in part: “… Wiley, withdrew from any physical confrontation with the Biekers and he specifically communicated his intent to surrender to Jon Bieker. Despite that communication, Mr. Bieker continued to advance and/or fire upon the defendant and the codefendants. The defendant was shot in the spine and paralyzed, herefore unable to further escape. As such, the defendant was entitled to use force to protect himself."
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ric Re: Laser printer for home business Dear Webby, Tech question: can you recommend a color laser printer (wireless)for home/small bussiness? And nor break the bank? Thank you, Ric Dear Ric I would recommend the DELL C1760nw It has WiFi and color and is good for 30,000 pages per month. It sells for $199, plus shipping. DELL C1760nw If quality is not important, and if you don't mind toner cost to be more than the printer, check out your local Staples store and see what they got on Special. Last time I was there they had a Brother color laser for $149, and the toner for it $249. Keep in mind, printers usually ship with near empty toner cartridges, and you will need new ones very soon. If you have an old Multi-Function ink squirter, don't heave it into the dumpster. Most likely you can use the scanner and fax function for another ten years. Have FUN!

Scientists have proven that by simply cooking your rice with some coconut oil, it changes the rice's digestible starch to indigestible starch, which prevents much of the rice from being metabolized into glucose, cutting the calories by about 60%. That's huge! The only difference is, you must let it sit in the fridge before you eat it. Here's what you need: 1 cup white rice 2 tsp. coconut oil 1 3/4 cups water Bring water to a boil in a pot. Add coconut oil and rice to pot. Cover, lower heat, and cook for 20 to 25 minutes. Let rice cool, then chill in the fridge for at least 12 hours. Reheat before serving.

The question directed: "Give four advantages of breast milk." What to write? He sighed, and began to scribble whatever came into his head, hoping for the best: 1. No need to boil. 2. Cats can't steal it. 3. Available whenever necessary. Um. So far so good - maybe. But the exam demanded a four-part answer. Again, what to write? Once more he sighed. He frowned. He scowled. Then sighed again. But suddenly, he brightened. He grabbed his pen, and triumphantly he scribbled his definitive answer: 4.

She takes her seat in the examination hall, stares at the question paper for five minutes, and then in a fit of inspiration takes her purse out, removes a coin and starts tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet - Yes for Heads and No for Tails. Within half an hour she is all done whereas the rest of the class is sweating it out. During the last few minutes, she is seen desperately throwing the coin, swearing and sweating. The moderator, alarmed, approaches her and asks what is going on. "I finished the exam in half and hour.

Illinois man punched girlfriend, hid in vacant apartment, blocked jail cell toilet and masturbated A Wilmington man started Thanksgiving morning by punching his girlfriend and hiding out from the cops in an empty apartment, then blocked up his holding cell toilet with clothes, masturbated, tried to escape from a moving squad car and bit an officer, police said. By early afternoon, 23-year-old Matthew Campus had ended up in the Will County jail. He appeared in court Friday morning but his bond information was not available. Officers were sent to Campus’ County Road home and spoke to his girlfriend, who reportedly said he punched her several times “during an argument over alcohol.” Campus’ sister witnessed the attack, police said. Campus hid out in a vacant apartment in his building, police said, but he was hunted down by two officers. The cops carted Campus off to the police station but once he got there, he “started threatening officers and their families with physical violence,” police said. “While being placed into a holding room Campus spit on the officers. Once in the holding room Campus removed his clothing and began to masturbate and continued to make threats to the officers. Campus then packed some of his clothing into the toilet of the holding room and attempted to flood the room.” At this point, the cops loaded Campus into a squad car so they could take him over to the county jail. “While being transported, Campus attempted to escape by breaking a portion of the prisoner transport partition and trying to climb to the rear storage area and door hatch on Route 53 in Elwood,” police said. “The Elwood Police Department responded to assist.” At the jail, “Campus continued to threaten officers and deputies,” police said, and he was taken to Presence St. Joseph Medical Center. “Campus continued to be aggressive towards paramedics and medical staff, using profanities and spitting on them and officers,” police said. “Campus damaged equipment at the medical center and bit a police officer.” Campus was returned to jail after a brief stay at the hospital.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lynn Re: Why not show lower 130 in graph? Dear Webby, Who told you about my lower 130? Just kidding. I don't understand why deduct the 130 and not show it in the graph. What is the reasoning behind that? Wouldn't that distort the graph? Lynn Dear Lynn There is no change in the lower 130, so we can ignore that. It is as if you were simply covering up that part of the graph and only looked at the top. By only looking at the changing tops, and stretching the colums in the graph so that the few pounds of change are stretched the full height of the graph, you see the actual changes greatly and equally emphasized. 4 - 5 pounds change are a tiny wiggle of 150, but a significant jump of 20. That is all we are doing. We justb cover up the bottom 130 and zoom the upper balance to the full height of the graph. Unlike what the Gullible Warming grant recipients do, who can't predict next Tuesday's weather but claim the polar ice caps will melt in 2050 unless they get more grant money, you simply zoom onto and visualize the changes.

Re speakers for laptop

If Denise has a Win 10 laptop it likely has bluetooth built 
in. That will allow for wireless transmission of the sound 
to a bluetooth speaker. 
Here is a link for a bluetooth reciever that can be purchased 
for less than $10.00 CAD and can be plugged in to the aux input 
on many boomboxes. This eliminates the need for a wire and allows 
the boombox to be located where convenient. The receiver needs 
periodic recharging depending on usage. A usb cable is provided 
for that purpose. Mine works well with the laptop I have.

Aliexpress Bluetooth

Another option is to purchase wireless bluetooth speakers for 
around $40 to $50. These are smaller than another boombox and still 
deliver decent sound. Obviously if you want to listen to a symphony 
orchestra you need to pick a different option. (Vinyl record and 
really expensive stereo probably).

The link provided is not an affiliate link but takes you to 
Aliexpress.com which ships from manufacturers in China. They accept 
paypal so you do not have to expose credit card info. 

I have purchased many items from Ali Express, all have arrived in 
working order. Do not purchase cellphones or tablets directly 
from China. Cell phones are for European connections and will not 
connect to Canadian carriers. The tablets are cheaply made and 
fail constantly. Stick with the brand names for those purchases.

The computer accessories such as cables, usb hubs, etc. are no 
different than what you can purchase in local stores, but are 
much reduced in price.

The only drawback to ordering this way is the shipping time 
regardless of the claims made on the site is an average of 
six weeks.

Merry Christmas!
Neil

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Lillemor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Virginia Houston Hinckley, 26, Jacksonville, Florida
Pregnant teacher arrested for sex with 16 year old student A St. Johns County English teacher accused of having sex with a 16-year-old student could soon be suspended without pay, a school district spokeswoman said. Virginia Houston Hinckley, a 26-year old St. Augustine High School teacher, has been suspended with pay since October, pending the outcome of the investigation, but the superintendent is recommending at the next school board meeting, Dec. 8, that she be suspended without pay. Hinckley, who lives in Jacksonville, turned herself in Wednesday at the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office after learning a warrant for her arrest had been issued by the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office. She is charged with having unlawful sexual activity with a minor, which is a second-degree felony. She was released Wednesday after posting $10,000 bond. According to the arrest warrant affidavit, the 16-year-old student said he became “flirty” with Hinckley, his English teacher, days after school began and that he and others commented on how she was pretty and how he “tickled” her. The student initially asked for Hinckley's phone number. She said no, but the following day when he asked again, she gave it to him and told him not to tell anyone, the warrant said. The two began exchanging text messages, including nude photos, according to the student. He said Hinckley sent him photos of her breasts and other body parts, the warrant said. According to the warrant, the student would often go to Hinckley's classroom after school, and when they were alone one day -- on or around Aug. 18 -- they began kissing and touching. She suggested that they go to Treaty Park, on Wildwood Drive, and she followed him there. The student got out of his vehicle and sat in the front seat of Hinckley's vehicle, where they kissed before moving to the back seat and having unprotected sex, the warrant said. Later that day, Hinckley sent the student a text message that said, “You better keep your mouth shut about this.” They continued exchanging text messages for about a week and then stopped all communication, the warrant said. Hinckley denied going to Treaty Park to have sex with the student. Her vehicle was seized and swabbed for DNA after deputies obtained a search warrant. Two warrants for cellphone records revealed there was communication between Hinckley and the student, investigators said. According to the arrest warrant, a witness saw Hinckley waiting for the 16-year-old before they went to Treaty Park. According to her old classmates and friends, Hinckley is married and is expecting her first child next year. School district officials said any steps beyond suspension will have to wait until after the outcome of the legal process.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lydia Re: Spreadsheet for tracking weight Dear Webby, I need an Excel spreadsheet to track my weight. Unfortunately I have long forgotten all about spreadsheets, so please tell me in small words like you did in the late 80's. And with a graph! Btw., my average weight now is around 150. Thanks Lydia Dear Lydia Sounds like you successfully cured your anorexia! Congratulations! For the graph to make sense it's best to ignore the bottom part, and only show the variations. So let's deduct the bottom 130 pounds and only show what is above 130. Men just focus on the top anyway. OK, in the first column we put the date. Type 12/1/2015 into the first cell. Right Click on it, Format Cells Select Date, and on the right side 14-Mar or whatever short date format you want. OK Now go into the cell below that and type +a1+1. Actually that is Quattro Style, but Excel will "correct" that to =+a1+1 That will show 2-Dec Now copy that cell with CTRL C Paste it down in the same column about 10 rows You might have to click on the big A column header to highlight the entire column, and format the date. On to column B Here you will enter your weight. Just enter some example numbers between 140 and 160. Column C =IF(B1>0,B1-130,"") That first checks if there IS something in column B. If there isn't, there is no point deducting 130 from nothing. However, if there IS something there, it deducts 130 from that, and puts it into Column C. If there is nothing, it does nothing. Leaves cell C empty. Copy that formula down column C as far as you want. Now it gets tricky. Smear column A to selct it. Hold down CTRL and smear colum C down just as far. Yes, I know, normally that would loose the previously selected column A. In this case it doesn't. Once you have Column A and C selected down to equal length, click on the Graph button above. Select either the top for upright bars or the third for lines. The top one works well for what you want. Highlight that and hit Next And Next again Then you can fill in the titles. For the top title type, for example: Weight above 130 Then click on Legend above, and take the checkmark off. That is only if you have different sets of data, for example also the weight of ol Chubby. Then you would use different color bars for you and for him. Then click finish Next rightclick on the dates at the bottom. Excel always messes them up. Right-click them and select Format Axis Select for example 3/14 or any short version. If the date is not rotated to save space, you can do that there too. Same for fonts. The rest is just dragging the graph to where you want it, squishing parts and selecting colors. Once you have made one, you will see how easy it is. Just keep in mind that weird, non-standard way of selecting data ranges. Once you have reached the bottom of the example, you don't have to dump the graph. You can adjust the ranges. Right-click between the columns Select Source Data OK, there you see a witches brew of Gobbledigook. In that you will spot the numbers of the lowest used cells, for example two occurrences of 16, one for the dates and one for the top weights. Change those two to for example 50. Now the graph takes the data for 50 days. If you change it to 365, it will do it for a year. That is all there is to it. Have FUN!

Good Morning, ,
Today is Saturday, December 5

In Austria, where I grew up, tonight is the night when 
St Nicolaus and a devil come around, read the kids the
riot act about what they have to stop or start doing,
praise them for what they did right, and leave them some
goodies.

All during Grade and High School I had been threatened 
quite frequently to be sent to Jagdberg, a former castle
converted to a Juvenile jail school with very high stone 
walls. 
While going to University a professor conned me into being
Santa at Jagdberg. 
Picture me in Santa clothes on my motorcycle riding twenty 
miles to Jagdberg. When I got there they gave me two shots
of Schnaps to ease my stage fright, and handed me a big sack
full of little ones, and a big old book with a hand written
page for each boy inserted between the pages.

My speeches to the first few boys were a bit awkward, but 
then the stage fright medicine started to work, and I quickly
got the hang of it. After a few classess I was even told to
shorten my speeches and be a bit less dramatic.

Eventually I finished with all 640 inmates and started on 
the guards and teachers. I had no papers on those, but faked
their sins and achievements quite nicely. By that time I
was on a roll!

Then they gave me coffee and a very nice sandwich with cold 
cuts in it, and shoed me out. By that time it was about
11 PM and snowing. So I stopped at my girlfriend's place and
gave her the baggie of treats that they had given me for my
effort. By the time I got out of there it was almost getting 
light. I made it home in time to change clothes and ride off
to University. 

Good old days!
Have FUN!

Cops: 'Cowards' film beating of man with cerebral palsy Documented in some of the most graphic videos ever released by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, two men were charged Tuesday with the vicious beating of a 23-year-old Pontiac man who has cerebral palsy. In the video — filmed by the man’s attackers and posted on their Facebook page, according to police — the victim can be seen lying on the concrete floor of an apartment building’s stairwell while his assailants kick and pummel him while shouting profanities and calling him the "n" word. "Preying on those in our community who suffer from disabilities will not be tolerated and furthermore, to have the audacity to post their actions on the victim’s page is beyond belief," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in a statement, adding: "I am proud of the deputies at the Pontiac substation and the excellent investigative work that was completed in order to bring these two cowards to justice." According to police, deputies responded to the Phoenix Place Apartments at 8:30 a.m. Monday, after a caller said an injured man was lying in front of the building. Officers determined that the victim "was robbed of his cell phone while he was inside his apartment and, after following the assailants, he was beaten by them inside a stairwell," said a news release from Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe. "Detectives learned that the suspects had filmed the assault using the victim's cell phone and then proceeded to post the video to the victim's Facebook page as well as their own personal pages," McCabe said in the release. A few hours after the beating, police arrested the suspects and the pair was arraigned Tuesday in 50th District Court in Pontiac, McCabe said. Authorities have not released the name of the victim, but Frankie Santana, a resident at the complex, told WJBK-TV that he was the man who was assaulted. "Why would they do that and put it on Facebook? That's how you are going to get caught real quickly," Santana said. Santana said the men spit and stomped on him, injuring an eye, but that "nothing is broke." He said he had seen one of the men before. Investigators say they believe they followed someone to get inside the building and then walked into the victim's unlocked apartment. "I crawled through the hallway and knocked on someone's door and that's how I got help," Santana told the TV station. Nikey Dashone Walker and Shadeed Dontae Bey, both 20 and residents of Pontiac, were charged with home invasion, unarmed robbery and assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder; and Judge Michael Martinez assigned $25,000 cash bonds to each, McCabe said. Walker has a prior conviction for auto theft and Bey for larceny, trespassing, possession of stolen goods, resisting police and a drug charge, McCabe said in his release. If convicted, they could be sent to prison for 10 years.

I am not stupid. However, the sound is still very crappy. I can do better with a comb and some parchment paper. How can I fix the zilly Kazoo? Denise Dear Denise You can't. With the cheap little squeakers in there, what you hear now is the best you will ever get out of that machine. To get decent sound you have to add external speakers, preferably amplified ones. there are amplified speakers, that are made to work with computers. Logitech makes some very good ones. You can also go to the local Pawn show and see what they got. Look for a boom box or living room stereo, that has AUX input lugs or sockets, originally intended for record player or external tape decks. Then ask for a cable to connect from the GREEN socket of the laptop, 1/8" stereo, to the boom box or house stereo. Connect, adjust the volume way down to minimize damage to your fine crystal, and you are all set. Unlike the cheap squeakers in laptops, quite often the built in microphone is good enough so that Microsoft and the CIA can hear every whisper in the room, and is plenty good enough for video conferencing. You CAN attach a head set or boom microphone. That cuts off the CIA snooper and gives the focus to the external microphone. If you don't want the CIA and Snowden to record what you do with the postman, put the external microphone in front of the radio. Have FUN!

Do NOT use a photograph printed on anything but copy paper! wax paper Martha Stewart Decoupage (There is one for light surfaces and one for dark surfaces. Choose according to what you are placing your photo on.) Rustoleum Ultra Cover Clear Gloss Steps: Print out your photo. Cut photo and lay right side up on wax paper. Spread decoupage evenly over the surface of the photo. Turn upside down (decoupage down on wooden surface) If you use something with a word, take this into consideration! Decoupaged Photo on Wood Wait 24 hours. Use a sponge and water to wipe off the paper and the photo will appear. Spray the clear Rustoeum over the wooden surface. I would suggest trying this on a scrap piece of wood first. You will be pleased with the results of even your first attempt. As you can see, I used a lazy Susan and will be a welcome gift.

The picture will transfer to the wood. Pinning the picture will keep it from moving during the ironing. Some types of wood will need two applications. In that case mark the outline with a pencil. You can erase that before you spray the clear coat on it. For smooth wood pieces check at the Dollar store. They have lots of wood plaques with pious or smart-ass sayings painted on the front, and smooth wood in the back. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Lillemor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Johnathon Holmes, 35, Sheffield, England
Sex attacker left beaten up after woman fights back A violent sex fiend was left bruised and bloodied after trying to rape a woman who courageously refused to go down without a fight. Johnathon Holmes, 35, jumped the woman on the streets of Sheffield, England, last month -- but ended up having to escape his own beastly attack with two black eyes and numerous gashes to his face, The Mirror reported. On Tuesday, the Sheffield man pleaded guilty to the Nov. 1 attack and was sentenced to four and a half years in prison, according to The Mirror. The woman testified in court that he followed her in the early morning hours for over a mile before pouncing on her and knocking her into some bushes. Fortunately for her, she realized she was being followed and prepared herself by placing her car keys in her hand as a potential weapon, she testified. She had also pulled out her phone to call her partner. As Holmes forced her on her back and climbed on top of her, he told her, “you are going to enjoy this,” she said. He then thrust his tongue into her mouth, and she chomped down on it as hard as she could. When he relaxed his grip she maneuvered herself on top of him and, with her keys pressed to his neck, continued screaming for help, and just generally beat the crap out of the big bully, she told the court. Two passers-by heard her cries and likely prompted his attempt to flee, Prosecutor Rachael Harrison said, according to The Sheffield Star. But as he jumped over some railings, he injured himself some more.

DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ The above joke reminds me of this fact: Giant Canadian/US retailer Home Depot has issued a company policy that no store is to do any more business with the US government or its representatives. Why? They prefer to hire people with experience in construction and building trades or their spouses who generally know as much about hardware, people who speak the local language fluently, and people who are physically in good enough shape to be able to assist customers with loading their purchases. However, if they sell above a certain amount of stuff to the US government, they fall under contractor or supplier status and have to employ according to government regulations. Right now that would mean firing a lot of women and hire more men, even if they are in no shape to lift a bag of cement that is as heavy as a kid, or don't know what cement is. They would have to fire local people who live within walking distance of the store and hire a certain percentage of new immigrants, etc., etc. Therefore, when they had to choose between customer service as usual versus government style, they decided to tell the governement to go shop elsewhere. ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Double Chocolate Toffee Cookies Ingredients: 3/4 cup cocoa 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup butter, softened 2/3 cup granulated sugar 2/3 cup packed, brown sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 eggs 1/2 cup chocolate chips 1/2 cup toffee bits Steps: Preheat oven to 350ş F.

Woman shot ex-beau in leg after moving out A dispute about a past relationship quickly escalated Tuesday when a woman shot her ex-boyfriend in the leg at his apartment where she previously lived with him for a f ew months, officials said. Orlando police are looking for shooting suspect Asia Roshonda Simpson, 21. About 8 p.m., officers were called to the shooting at GrandeVille at JubiLee Park apartments off South Goldenrod Road near the Orlando International Airport. Once inside, police found the victim — who hasn't been identified — lying on the floor between the kitchen and bedroom, holding his right leg. The back of his pants were covered in blood, according to a report said. Police asked who shot him, and he said his ex-girlfriend. Emergency personnel found a fragment of the bullet in his jeans. He was rushed to Orlando Regional Medical Center. His condition was unknown. "It appears he was shot from the front of his right leg and the bullet exited through the rear of his leg," the report said. The victim said they began dating in January. They lived together most of their relationship until they broke up in October. She was in the process of moving out. Once she took everything from the apartment, the victim left to eat. She called him multiple times, police said, until he answered. That's when she said she wanted to talk to him in person. He returned to the apartment and they spoke about their past relationship. "He stated she was upset because she was homeless," the report said. "He told her to go to her sister's house or the new guy she was dating." Simpson then pulled a gun from her purse and shot him, police said. "He dropped to the ground and pleaded with her not to shoot him again," the report said. "He stated he was afraid that she was going to shoot him again and kill him."

These waffles are creamy in the middle and crispy on the outside; perfect for breakfast with some eggs or just on their own. Definitely a fun twist on a leftover item. Approximate Time: 15 minutes Yield: 4 waffles Ingredients: 1 Tbsp oil 1/4 cup milk 2 eggs 2 1/2 cup leftover mashed potatoes 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese 1/2 cup flour 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp baking soda 1 slice cooked and crumbled bacon (optional) Steps: Whisk together oil, milk and eggs. Leftover Mashed Potato WafflesLeftover Mashed Potato Waffles Stir in the mashed potatoes*, cheese, and bacon (if you're using it) until well combined. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Fold the flour mixture into the potato mixture until it's well combined. Scoop the mixture into greased waffle maker, spreading it into an even layer. Bake until golden brown and the egg is cooked fully, a few minutes. Open and check to see if you've reached desired browning. My waffle maker is temperamental; I have to flip my waffles over to get them crunchy. Serve with eggs or on their own. I like them with a hit of sour cream (my husband likes his with ketchup and hot sauce). So yummy! *Depending on the consistency of the leftover mashed potatoes you're using, you might need to either add a bit more milk (if they're too dry), or a bit more flour (if they're wet).

My old house had laminate and I've tried everything a steam mop, a steam vacuum mop, the regular mop by hand method, and I always had streaky laminate floors. With the new house and hardwood, which is about 11 years old, I was determined to find a way to have streak free floors. I have tried many combinations of natural solutions different mops and always end up non-streak free but today I realize there's only one solution to the problem no matter what cleaning products you want to use. The first step is to vacuum or sweep. Then fill a bucket 1/4 full, with; warm water 1 cup white vinegar 3 drops "drops" of dish soap, drop the soap into still water to avoid suds Next, using a mop start with a small section. Here's the trick, immediately throw an absorbent clean towl down and using the mop wipe the floor dry. Continue in sections. Remember you may have to get extra towels as they get too damp. The problem that we're having with the streaks is the water is drying in place and leaving a watermark, so if you wipe the excess water immediately ya got a beautiful shine. By Justjenn [1] Too tedious for me. I use hot water and a squirt of dish soap, and a heavy string mop. Square tip, not the cutesy yacht mop tip. After sweeping with a Microfiber dustmop, I dunk the wet mop and squeeze excess water out, and mop the floor. Since it is only damp, not sloppy after I squeezed it, it does not leave streaks. If your dish soap does not leave streaks on glasses, then it won't leave streaks after damp mopping. The only challenge is to find the heavy, thick yarn, square tipped wet mops unless you go to a janitorial supply store. Yep, that is what the professionals use. Have FUN!

Burglar Stuck In Chimney Dies After Homeowner Lights Fire A suspected burglar broke into a home in Fresno County, California, but was never actually able to leave. The man ended up getting stuck in the chimney of the home and then died on Saturday afternoon after the unsuspecting homeowner lit a fire. According to Fox News, the homeowner had no idea that a burglar, or anyone for that matter, was in his chimney. On Friday night, the burglar climbed up to the top of the top of a home in the city of Huron, California. He then lowered himself into the chimney in hopes of entering the home and robbing it of its belongings, but things didn’t go so well from there. The burglar ended up getting stuck in the chimney and just stayed there. On Saturday afternoon, the homeowner went to light a fire in his fireplace, but had no idea that anyone was actually stuck in the chimney. Just before 3 p.m. on Saturday, the homeowner heard the burglar scream from inside the chimney shortly after the fire was lit. He immediately worked at putting the fire out and it caused the home to fill up with smoke. Yahoo News reported that while the home was filling up with smoke, the homeowners contacted the authorities to let them know of the situation. They continued to try to put the fire out while waiting for firefighters to arrive. Cal Fire – Fresno County arrived on the scene at the home on the 16000 block of W. Gale Ave just about 10 minutes after the initial call. The suspect in the chimney was said to apparently still be breathing and moving while stuck inside of the chimney. Firefighters began tearing apart the chimney to get the burglar out of the chimney and after a short while, they were able to remove him. While attempting to rescue the man, they soon discovered that he was dead. A preliminary investigation done by the police show that no wrongdoing was done by the homeowner. No one within the home had any idea that someone was in the chimney at the time they lit the fire as the suspect had crawled into it overnight in an attempt to rob the home. The suspect’s body was removed from the scene in Fresno County, California, by the Coroner’s Office. An autopsy is going to be performed to identity not only the cause and exact manner of death, but also his identity.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Irene Re: How to send a Fax Dear Webby, I used to send faxes from my laptop for many years. Then suddenly it stopped. What can I do to send the occasional fax? I got W7, and the laptop is kinda ancient. Thanks Ireme Dear Irene There could be many reasons, from bad connection to hardware to Windows settings. Enough for a small book. I am in the same predicament. My laptop is probably older than you are, and I don't have the time to sort out all Windows problems, that could interfere with faxing. Since there are alot of people like us around, there are also a number of companies on the web, who will fax for us. Here are some: https://www.efax.ca https://www.efax.com They are free for the first month, $16.50 after that You get a fax number, that you can put on your site or your stationery. Then there is http://www.bestfreefax.com/ Fax for free, receive for $3.95 a month. You get a fax number too, that you can use. With services like that just a click away, there is no point buying a fax machine for occasional faxing or to spend a lot of time messing with the Windows Fax. Have FUN!

"I will check again, sir." the waiter replied and went back to the kitchen. While he was still gone, Sid said, "I cannot believe there are no Jews in Mexico. Our people are scattered everywhere." When the waiter returned he said, "Sir, no Mexican Jews." "Are you really sure?" Al asked again. "I cannot believe there are no Mexican Jews." "Sir, I ask everyone," the waiter replied exasperated.

Entertainers like the Smothers Brothers, Barbra Streisand, Woody Allen and Miles Davis gained exposure there at the start of their careers. While the district was well known for its night clubs, there was a little coffee house just around the corner called The Exit - a play on words of the title of Jean-Paul Sartre's book, No Exit. The coffee house had an open mike and anybody could say anything, read anything, and they did. During the day, I worked with the guy who ran the place. He asked me to volunteer waiting tables for one night, I said I would. Now the decor was dark - everything was dark burgundy and black. At nightthe only lighting was a small candle at each table. My job was to take orders for drinks (coffee, tea, juice, etc.) I think it was my second table that I approached with a glass of water and ice. I sat the glass down and before I could ask for their order, I heard a cry - coming from MY table. Seems that since I really couldn't see the table, I'd set the glass on the edge and it'd tipped over onto the lady's lap. The rest of my volunteering that night was upstairs typing papers.

Arrested man didn't remember driving SUV off showroom floor, through glass doors A man arrested Thursday told police he did not remember going to Honda of Ocala and taking two large screen television sets and putting them in a SUV on the showroom floor, driving through double glass doors, driving into another vehicle or abandoning the vehicle at the entrance of a subdivision. Vantice L. Beshears, 46, faces six charges, including grand theft over $20,000 and commercial burglary. He remained at the Marion County Jail on Friday, with his bond totaling $23,500. Early Thursday, Ocala Police Department Officer Ashley Stinehour was told that a black 2014 Toyota 4-Runner had been involved in a hit-and-run crash in the 2800 block of Southeast 31st Street and had pulled into the Devonshire subdivision. Stinehour found the sport utility vehicle parked just outside the subdivision’s front gate. The lights of the vehicle were flashing as if someone was using a remote to lock the doors. The officer saw Beshears walking on the opposite side of the entrance and called out to him. At first, Beshears ignored Stinehour, bur then walked over to her. Beshears, who appeared intoxicated and had a bottle of Aleve in his hand, told the officer he was visiting a friend, but could not give a name or address, according to an OPD report. Stinehour, joined by other officers, discovered there were warrants from Marion and Lake counties for Beshears' arrest and he was taken into custody. He was first taken to a hospital for an evaluation but became aggressive and was taken instead to the jail.

If you use a camp fire or stove top percolator, use plenty of water, bring the water with the eggs in it to a rapid boil, and move it off the fire. The eggs will cook themselves in about 5 minutes. Rinse in the creek or lake, and peel immediately. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A policeman was patrolling a local parking spot overlooking a golf course. He drove by a car and saw a couple inside with the dome light on. There was a young man in the driver's seat reading a computer magazine and a young lady in the back seat knitting. He stopped to investigate. He walked up to the driver's window and knocked. The young man looked up, cranked the window down, and said, "Yes, officer?" "What are you doing?" the policeman asked. "I'm reading a magazine." Pointing towards the young lady in the back seat, the officer then asked, "And what is she doing?" "She's knitting." "And how old are you?" the officer then asked the young man. "I'm nineteen," he replied. "And how old is she?" asked the officer. The young man looked at his watch and said, "Well, in about twelve minutes she'll be eighteen." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Jake and Paul are two old retired widowers who reside close to each other and do constant welfare checks on each other. One day, as he drinks his morning coffee, Paul opens the morning paper and turns to the Obits page. He gets the shock of his life when he sees his own obituary in the column. He realizes that the query for info on him by the local newspaper several months earlier was in preparation for this event. He correctly surmises that it is a mistaken entry from their database, premature and erroneous.. It still excites and rankles him, so he calls Jake up. "Jake, are you up yet?" Jake sleepily answers, "Yeah, but I'm only now starting my coffee." "Jake. open the newspaper to page 31." The paper rustles for a few seconds, then a long silent pause ensues. Finally, Jake comes on the line quietly and fearfully, "So Paul, where are you calling me from right now?" ____________________________________________________ Where is THAT hospital ? I think I have a fever. While making her rounds, the Head Nurse noticed a young female patient missing. Pressing the intercom, she said "Lori, where's the patient in 340?" "Oh!" came the reply. "Well... she was complaining of severe chills, so I put her in bed with Mr. Johnson in 328 who was running a high fever." ____________________________________________________ Noella's Blunders Thanks to James: So this guy's blunder was in just waiting too long! When they were kids he and his brother fought constantly. Dad would come home and pictures were rearranged, coats were hung in weird places around the room - to cover up holes knocked into the walls. They'd just gotten boxing gloves and were battling it out. James knocked his brother into the closet, but he didn't come back out. After about five minutes, James got worried that maybe he'd really hurt his brother. He walked over to the closet and slowly parted the clothes and out came a fist - right into his mouth. And THAT's how he got that chipped tooth. True story James Noella ____________________________________________________
