"Oh, yes, indeed," said Auntie, beaming. "Before I had walked very far, I came to some beautiful rolling fields. There seemed to be a number of people about, mostly men in weird clothes. Some of them kept shouting at me in a very eccentric manner, but I took no notice. There were four men who followed me for some time, uttering curious excited barking sounds. Naturally, I ignored them, too." "Oh, by the way," she added, as she held out her hands, "You know how I detest littering.

______________________________________________________ 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." ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ 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.

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!

______________________________________________________ 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.

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.

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] ______________________________________________________

"Why?" asked somebody from the audience. "I watched my wife's routine at breakfast for years," the expert explained. "She made lots of trips between the refrigerator, stove, table and cabinets, often carrying a single item at a time. One day I told her, 'Why don't you try carrying several things at once?'" "Did it save time?" the guy in the audience asked. "Actually, yes," replied the expert. "It used to take her 20 minutes to make breakfast. ........

____________________________________________________ A few housewives were sitting around the table talking, and the subject turned to their husbands. 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. I am just going to make sure I won't either". ____________________________________________________ A lady from Chicago was visiting New York City.

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.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Olga Re: Weird invoices Dear Webby, Lately I have reeceived all kinds of weird invoices from companies I have never dealt with, usually companies that I have never heard of before. 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. Just make filters like those, and you will never see those phony invoice emails ever again. Are you getting the hint why I love mailWasher so much? Have FUN! DearWebby A salesman, tired of his job, gave it up to become a policeman. Several months later, a friend asked him how he liked his new role.

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."

Spray the inside of a baggie with cooking spray and break one or more eggs into the baggie. Squeeze out most of the air while zipping the baggie closed. Drop the baggie into the pot of water reducing heat to medium/low and cover. I cooked two eggs for 5 minutes but increase/decrease time according to number of eggs being poached. The baggie allows for a good visual check during cooking. When the eggs are done, remove the baggie from the water using tongs. Open baggie carefully - contents will be hot - and simply pour the eggs out. No more stringy whites clinging to the inside of the pot!

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. Then the barman says, "There is one thing, though. How do you get the duck to stop dancing?" And the man says, "Oh, it's simple.

The half that was seated started yelling at those standing to sit down, and the ones standing yelled at the ones sitting to stand up. The rabbi, learned as he was in the Law and commentaries, didn't know what to do. 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." Then the rabbi said to the old man, "The congregants fight all the time, yelling at each other about whether they should sit or stand."

______________________________________________________ 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.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Alicia Re: More visible cursor Dear Webby, Lately I have had more and more trouble seeing my cursor. It has gotten worse since I added a second monitor. How can I fix that? I have Windows 7. Alicia Dear Alicia There are programs that provide different and colorful cursors, however, some of them have a "payload", malware attached or included. Unless you have Malwarebytes running, be extremely careful and read the "agreement" carefully. Before going that far, try the built in options. Click on START Control Panel Ease of Access Make the Mouse easier.... That option may be labelled slightly different, Hit that and you see some examplpe mouse pointers. Select the middle one on the right side: Large Inverting Hit APPLY and then OK. Exit the Control Panel. Now you have a cursor that changes from dark to light depending on the background. You can go a step larger if necessary, but try this size first. Have FUN! DearWebby Jeff had gone to propose to his girlfriend and returned home crying bitterly. "What happened, son?" his father asked, eagerly awaiting her response. "Did she accept?" "No, she sure didn't," sobbed Jeff. "When I told her what you advised me to say, she slapped my face and told me to get out." "Did you begin by telling her what I told you to say, what I told your mother when she accepted my proposal? 'Sweetheart, time stands still when I look in your eyes.' Did you tell her that?" asked his father. "More or less, but maybe I got it mixed up a bit," Jeff groaned. "I said, 'My Dear, you have a face that would stop a clock'!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Quick and Easy Poached Eggs Fill a pot half way with water and bring to a boil. Spray the inside of a baggie with cooking spray and break one or more eggs into the baggie. Squeeze out most of the air while zipping the baggie closed. Drop the baggie into the pot of water reducing heat to medium/low and cover. I cooked two eggs for 5 minutes but increase/decrease time according to number of eggs being poached. The baggie allows for a good visual check during cooking. When the eggs are done, remove the baggie from the water using tongs. Open baggie carefully - contents will be hot - and simply pour the eggs out. No more stringy whites clinging to the inside of the pot!

_____________________________________________________ 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. It is linked to Global Warming He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical. Forty-three said yes, six were undecided, and only one knew that the chemical was water. The title of his prize winning project was, "How Gullible Are We?"

Fla. woman arrested after she threatened fast-food workers A southwest Florida woman was arrested on Tuesday after police said she become angry over a wrong order at a Fort Myers area Burger King and threatened the workers. Tarnisha Gilyard, 23, placed an order in the drive-through of a Burger King at 6 p.m. Tuesday and called later to say it was made incorrectly, WTSP reports. Police said Gilyard then “returned to the store, threw her bag of food down, and started cursing at workers.” Witnesses told police that Gilyard was “screaming and cursing at workers about the order,” police report. An assistant manager offered to replace the order, which one worker said was a “Crispy Chicken Jr.” plain. According to police, a witness said Gilyard told workers “I’m going to get a gun and shoot people with it,” “I’m gonna get something from my car and get you,” “I’m gonna spray up Burger King” and “I’ll beat the dog right out of you.” Police said Gilyard had a black metal baton with her and “struck a counter area near a cash register” as she screamed curses at the workers. She was arrested and faces two charges of aggravated assault and one charge of marijuana possession.
______________________________________________________ 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.

That is quite OK. It reminds people to be vigilant and not fall for any flakey scam from unsolicited mail.

DearWebby The proud father brought home a backyard swing set for his children and immediately started to assemble it with all the neighborhood children anxiously waiting to play on it. After several hours of reading the directions, attempting to fit bolt A into slot B, etc., he finally gave up and called upon an old handyman working in a neighboring yard. The old-timer came over, threw the directions away, and in a short while had the set completely assembled.

"To tell the truth," replied the old-timer, "I can't read, and when you can't read, you've got to think." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Poaching Eggs A skillet with a lid is needed. 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.

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.

He gladly did and congratulated her on having enough sense to not drive herself when impaired. Although nothing happened in the car, same as nothing happened between him and his secretary at the office, he decided not to mention it to his wife, who was more than jealous enough without any provocation or reason. Later that night Hank was drivng his wife to a baby shower party when he spotted a high-heeled shoe hidden under the passenger seat.

______________________________________________________ >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! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ A hunter in Africa ran across a pigmy standing next to a huge dead elephant.

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!

"Waste not, Want not" he thought as he slipped the balls into the pocket of his shorts, intending to give them to a co-worker who was a golf nut. Later, on his way home, he stopped at a pedestrian crossing, waiting for the lights to change. A girl standing next to him saw the large bulge in his shorts. "What's that?" she asked,... with her eyes gleaming lustfully. "Golf balls," he replied. "Oh," said the girl sympathetically, "that must be painful.... I had tennis elbow once!"

______________________________________________________ >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! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Grandpa was celebrating his 100th birthday and everybody complimented him on how athletic and well-preserved he appeared. "Gentlemen, I will tell you the secret of my success," he cackled. "I have been in the open air day after day for some 75 years now." 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. Whenever we had a fight, the one who was proved wrong, would go outside and take a walk. By the time Jenny died thirtyfive years ago, my walks had become a habit and it was no big deal to keep them up." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cook Frozen Dinner Rolls in the Microwave Just like many of the other foods I warm daily in the microwave, frozen dinner rolls are great hot out of the microwave as well.

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.

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.

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.

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Lillemor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Matthew Campus, 23, Wilmington, Illinois
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.

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!

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.

______________________________________________________ >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 350º 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."

I'm telling everybody as long as your computer is healthy stay with it. When a new one has to be bought you are stuck with Windows 10 like I am. Wish it never got invented. For a while I felt like I was starting to use a computer for the first time again. Getting better now, but it took over 3 weeks. Comac Dear Comac Use the Classic link I had on that page. You can make W10 look and feel like W7 or even XP. Lots of companies use the XP look and feel, because they just want their employees to get work done, and not waste time cussing at W10. XP works. What more do they need? Now you can even pick and choose which parts you want to look and feel like W7. Try it!

Mustering all her mental abilities she thought for a few minutes. "Surely I'm not the only young, beautiful woman to have done this," she muttered to herself. "Others must have done the same thing. Maybe if I drive back the way I came, I'll find a gas cap that will fit, or maybe even the one I lost."

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.

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!

"Sid," asked Al, "Are there any Jews in Mexico?" I don't know," Sid replied. "Why don't we ask the waiter?" When the waiter came by, Al asked him, "Are there any Mexican Jews?" "I don't know sir, let me ask," the waiter replied, and he went into the kitchen. He returned in a few minutes and said, "No, sir. No Mexican Jews." "Are you sure?" Al asked. "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. "We have orange Jews, prune Jews, tomato Jews and grape Jews, but no one ever hear of Mexican Jews!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Best Brownies As easy as a mix, but much better! Approximate Time: 25 min prep; 30 min bake Yield: 1 8-inch square pan Ingredients: 1/2 cup butter 1 cup sugar 2 large eggs 1 tsp vanilla extract (I always use vanilla paste, for more flavor) 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp baking powder Steps: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8-inch square baking pan. I used this recipe for my brownie bowls (recipe submitted separately), so I greased and floured muffin tins. In microwave, melt butter. Stir in the sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat in the cocoa, flour, salt and baking powder. Spread the batter into the pan (I put the batter into the muffin tins). Bake 25-30 minutes. Do not overcook.

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.

I put the egg at the bottom, water and turn on. Since water does not boils, eggs are kept softer. My coffee maker takes about 15 to 20 minutes. You just have to figure out how long it takes to get your eggs the way you like. By zelda [3] You will probably have to use an old-fashioned percolator type coffee maker with the coffee tower pulled out. 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 ______________________________________________________

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.

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 ?

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 ____________________________________________________

Police took 29-year-old Hector Anaya Segura into custody after responding to a call for a naked man in a flower bed on Crystal Drive in the Crystal City neighborhood of Arlington, Virginia, just after midnight Sunday. Segura was sweating profusely, screaming profanities and began pounding on a police cruiser, sources said. Officers attempted to subdue him without violence, then used a Taser unsuccessfully, sources said. A Taser was used again after the first attempt seemed to have no effect. Segura, a Mexican citizen, was in town for the 2015 International Drug Policy Reform Conference at the Crystal Gateway Marriott. The event brings together people who think the war on drugs does more harm than good. Segura also is charged with disorderly conduct.

"I did 30 years in the Corps," the Marine declared proudly, "and fought in three of my country's wars. Fresh out of boot camp I hit the beach at Okinawa, clawed my way up the bloodsoaked sand, and eventually took out an entire enemy machine gun nest with a single grenade. "As a sergeant, I fought in Korea alongside General MacArthur. We pushed back the enemy inch by bloody inch all the way up to the Chinese border. "Finally, as a gunny sergeant, I did three consecutive combat tours in Vietnam and survived." "Ah," said the Sailor with a dismissive wave of his hand, "just shore duty, huh?" And the fight was on. ______________________________________________________ This one is long, but several people have asked for it, so here it is again: REDNECK TIPS FOR ALL OCCASIONS 1. If you take beer to a job interview, bring some for the interviewer too.. 2. If they are not wearing a game warden's uniform, try to identify people in your yard before shooting at them. 3. It's considered tacky to take a cooler to church. 4. If you have to vacuum the bed, it is time to change the sheets. 5. Don't use the dead fridges in your front yard for sighting in your guns. They are too close. Use your neighbor's fridges for that. DINING OUT 1. When decanting wine, make sure that you tilt the paper cup, and pour slowly so as not to "bruise" the bouquet of the wine. 2) Except at the drive in it's considered fashionable to take the bottle out of the paper bag. 3. If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your fingers covering the label. ENTERTAINING IN YOUR HOME 1. For table centerpieces stuffed animals are a lot nicer than roadkill.. 2. Do not allow the dog to sit on the table...he should sit on a chair or milk crate like everybody else 3) The chair with the most legs is for visitors. PERSONAL HYGIENE 1. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done in private using one's OWN truck keys. 2. Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days. However, if you live alone, deodorant is a waste of beer money. 3. Dirt and grease under the fingers is a social no-no, as they tend to detract from a woman's jewelry and alter the taste of finger foods. DATING (Outside the Family) 1. Always offer to bait your date's hook, especially on the first date. 2. Be aggressive. Let her know you're interested: "I've been wanting to go out with you since I read that stuff on the bathroom wall two years ago." 3. Establish with her parents what time she is expected back. Some will say 10:00 PM; Others might say "Monday." If the latter is the answer, it is the man's responsibility to get her to school on time. THEATER ETIQUETTE 1. Crying babies should be taken to the lobby and picked up immediately after the movie has ended. 2. Refrain from talking to characters on the screen. Tests have proven they can't hear you. 3) No matter how real a game warden looks on the screen, don't shoot in the movie. It gives the person in front of you a terrible ear ache. WEDDINGS 1. Livestock, is a poor choice for a wedding gift, unless it is yours. 2. Kissing the bride for more than 5 seconds may get you shot. 3. For the groom, at least, rent a tux. A leisure suit with a cummerbund and a bowling shirt can create a tacky appearance. 4. Though uncomfortable, say "yes" to socks and shoes for this special occasion. DRIVING ETIQUETTE 1. Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles; Even if the gun is loaded, and the deer is in sight. 2. When approaching a four-way stop, the vehicle with the largest tires always has the right of way. 3. Never tow another car using duct tape. Use pantyhose instead. 4. When sending your wife down the road with a gas can, it is impolite to ask her to bring back beer. 5. Never relieve yourself from a moving vehicle, especially when driving. 6. Do not shoot any game while traveling in a funeral procession. 7. It's OK to put the beer in the air-conditioned hearse, but it is tacky to strap the coprse on the roof to make more room for more beer. ______________________________________________________ Moon by Kenny Rogers, published on FaceBook ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Wayne An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Hayley Oates 25, Wayne, NJ photo courtesy of Wayne police
NJ woman charged with filing false report A Morris County woman allegedly made a false 911 call in order to divert police away from the bar where she and a friend were drinking so they could leave and not be caught driving drunk. Police said that Hayley Oates, 25, posted on social media after she called 911: “lmao.. 2 mins later the cop peals out..silly piggies tricks r for u,” Oates was arrested Thursday and charged with filing false reports to law enforcement and creating a false public alarm, Martin said. She was released pending a court appearance. Martin called Oates’ alleged actions “inexcusable and reprehensible behavior,” and said police officers place themselves in harm’s way daily responding to real events. Officer Gregory Halligan and Sgt. Donald Davidson were dispatched to Mother's Ale House around 3:15 a.m. Monday morning after the department received a 911 call reporting “a female being attacked in the parking lot.” The caller told the dispatcher that the suspect was in a blue pickup truck before abruptly hanging up. The officers raced to the bar with their lights and sirens activated and found no evidence of an assault and no witnesses, Martin said. The surveillance cameras in the area did not pick up any assault. Detective Sgt. Robert Simpson and Detective Dave Collins determined that Oates allegedly made the fake call to draw officers to Mother’s Ale House while she and an unidentified man could leave the Grasshopper Too without being stopped for driving under the influence, Martin said. Martin noted that Paramus Police Officer Vincent Brock died in a 1993 car crash responding to a prank 911 call about a shooting.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Hester Re: Why would Verizon switch to AOL Dear Webby, I know all of Verizon's users always bitch and complain about them, but somehow they still stay with Verizon. That is the total opposite of AOL. People bitch and complain about AOL users, but those are always defensive and 100% loyal to AOL, no matter how bad a name AOL has. Why would anybody want to mix those two? Hester Dear Hester Verizon wanted the AOL customer list, like Times-Warner did, before they spit them out again. Verizon has already backtracked about forcing their users to switch to AOL adresses. I guess some of them threatened dire consequences. Next might be an option to use Thunderbird instead of the AOL mail interface. Since Verizon makes more money from texting, AOL Instant Messenger will probably be phased out by summer. It will be more fun to watch from a safe distance, than to be a victim of either of those giants. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ In the high school gym, all the girls in the class were lined up against one wall, and all the boys against the opposite wall. Then, every ten seconds, they walked toward each other until they were half the previous distance apart. A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer were asked, "When will the girls and boys meet?" The mathematician said: "Never." The physicist said: "In an infinite amount of time." The engineer said: "Well... in about two minutes, they'll be close enough for all practical purposes." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Best Bacon Brussels Sprouts The reason why the word "best" is in the recipe is because this dish always converts the brussels sprouts naysayers by first bite. Deconstructing the sprout by serving it in loose leaf form helps those who compare the little vegetable to "mushy alien heads." Mushy alien heads? Yes! That's what I called them for 28 years! Now, cooked properly, I absolutely adore them. And guess what? This recipe has only three ingredients and takes 10 minutes to make. I have served this at Thanksgiving dinner numerous times and even the little ones loved it. Give it a shot! Approximate Time: 10 minutes Yield: 4 sides Ingredients: 6 large brussels sprouts (or 8 mediums) 2 strips of bacon 5 walnuts salt, pepper, and optional sprinkle of sugar to taste Best Bacon Brussels Sprouts Steps: Cut little cone/triangle shapes from the bottoms of the sprouts. Pull off the individual leaves off sprouts and collect in bowl/plate. Chop bacon into tiny cubes and render in a pan on medium heat until crispy. Remove bacon from pan and let rest on paper towel. Leave bacon drippings in pan and add brussels sprouts leaves. Cook for about 5 minutes. If you like your brussels sprouts on the softer, more wilted side, add a teaspoon of water to the pan and cover with lid, cook for an extra minute. I like mine crispy so I don't really do this ;) Chop nuts and add to sprouts. Stir well, add bacon back in. Season with salt and pepper to taste. You wont need much because of the bacon. Sprinkle in a tiny bit of sugar to pull out the caramelized notes, if you like. I do! Serve up and enjoy! By attosa [139] ______________________________________________________

Four children leaped from the vehicle and began feverishly unloading gear and setting up the tent. The boys rushed to gather firewood, while the girls and their mother set up the camp stove and cooking utensils.

You see, at the ranch this here coyote it ate six hens and killed the goat. And last night when Pa heard a noise out in the chicken pen, he grabbed his gun and said, "That coyote's back again! Stay back, he told all us kids, I wouldn't want ya hurt! He was naked as a jaybird- no pants, no boots, no shirt! To the henhouse there he crawled, like an Injun on the snoop. Then he stuck that double barrel, through the window of the coop. As he stared into the darkness, with coyotes on his mind, Our ol' hound Zeke come asneakin'up behind. And cold-nosed Pa without no warnin'. We been cleanin' chickens since three o'clock this mornin'! ____________________________________________________ Noella's Blunders One of the things that I liked to do when feeling a bit down was to get in my car and drive (gas was cheap back in the 70s). At the time I drove a small Opel Kadet and living in St. Louis, I could start out on I-70, and make connecting highways then drive the circle (about 70 miles) around the city. I’d take the circle once or twice and usually felt better. This particular night I decided to take I-40 west just to see where it went, I’d turn around and come back into the city when I tired. It was a little after midnight. Several miles out, I found a small road that I’d never seen before and I decided to explore it. I’d gone quite a few hundred yards down the road when it narrowed and I realized I was was a long driveway. At that point it was too far to back up, and there was no place to turn around, so I was forced to drive on and turn around when I got to the yard which was at the top of a hill. So late at night, I drove slowly up the hill, hoping to not disturb the people who lived there and was in the process of turning around to go back to the highway when out of the dark came at least five or six men. They rushed my car, pounded on the hood several times while at the same time hollering. I was terrified! Luckily my windows were rolled up and the doors locked. One got close to my window and must have seen my fear in my face, because he immediately stopped and told the others to cool it. It seems that they were expecting a friend to stop by and they thought I was he. That cured me of driving down lonely dark roads at midnight.

The rancher's prize bull was missing from the section through which the railroad passed. The rancher only wanted to be paid the fair value of the bull. The case was scheduled to be tried before the justice of the peace in the back room of the general store. The attorney for the railroad immediately cornered the rancher and tried to get him to settle out of court. The lawyer did his best selling job, and finally, even though the rancher insisted that a prize bull was worth five times what an ordinary bull is worth, he agreed to be satisfied with just half of what he was asking. After the rancher had signed the release and took the check and cashed it in at the store, the young lawyer couldn't resist gloating a little over his success, telling the rancher, "You know, I hate to tell you this, old man, but I put one over on you in there. I couldn't have won the case. The engineer was asleep and the fireman was in the caboose when the train went through your ranch that morning. I didn't have one single witness to put on the stand. I bluffed you!" The old rancher replied, "Well, I'll tell you, young feller, I was a little worried about winning that case myself, because that durned bull came home this morning." ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

NYC man who snorted heroin during police interview While in police custody for his alleged connection to a fatal shooting near the so-called "Zombie McDonald's" by Penn Station, "person of interest" Vincent Arcona pulled something interesting out of his person. According to a criminal complaint from the Manhattan DA, Arcona was in a police station interview room when he "reached into his buttocks area" and produced a small package containing heroin. Magic. NYPD Detective Adrian Calemmo says Arcona then placed the heroin on the table in front of him and snorted it. Mission accomplished, he then allegedly tossed the packaging on the floor, under the table, where the detective says he later recovered it. Asked about the packaging, Arcona allegedly admitted that it had previously contained heroin, back when it was up inside his butt. Arcona has not been charged with anything in connection to the fatal shooting yet, but on Saturday he was arraigned on charges of evidence tampering and criminal possession of a controlled substance. He's being held on $25,000 bail. The suspect in the shooting, Francisco Alsina, 23, was reportedly arrested in Rhode Island on Friday and is awaiting extradition back to NYC. Investigators believe he fatally shot Angel Quiñones, 43, and wounded two others last Monday morning during a dispute over drug dealing turf.

It didn't take me long to try a basic (Bounty 1/2) sheet and it worked wonderfully in the coffeemaker. By Esther C. [2] Rinsing used coffee filters works fine too. I don't like throwing wet grounds into the garbage, because that promotes rotting and smelling, and because the myth that coffee grounds are good for plants is BS, I often just rinse used coffee filters and drape them over a plastic can to dry. They are surprisingly strong and durable. Plumbers claim that rinsing coffee grounds down the drain helps keeping it clean and from ever stopping up. I have to agree. The only stopped up kitchen sink I have ever seen was in cartoons. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

Texas man arrested for assaulting his girlfriend because she would not smell his armpits. A man in Midland, Texas was arrested on charges of assault for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend for refusing to smell his armpit. According to News West 9, 24-year-old Robinson Pinilla-Bolivar asked his girlfriend to smell his armpit, and when she refused, an argument erupted. During the argument, police said Pinilla-Bolivar punched the woman in the back of the head and attempted to stab her with a knife. The victim fled to the office of the apartment complex the pair was in. Police said Pinilla-Bolivar then began dragging the woman from the office, but fled when he learned police had been notified and officers were en route. He was later arrested amid a traffic stop and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jean Re: Get rid of installed programs Dear Webby, My internet experience is severely limited in comparison to yours. I have only worked with two email systems. One a government mainframe, that was obsolete even before it went online, and Yahoo. Consequently, Yahoo is far superior in my opinion. I have used it for years and years. With the exception of a few mishaps, I am content to work with Yahoo's time frame/system. I do have annoyances with the viruses, & etcetera, I've managed to find but have been able to survive. I appreciate your concern about my inability and/or desire not to change. I am one of those, "if it works, don't fix it" types. Plus I hate change. Being on the internet, this is not a good quality, but it is me. I do have a gmail account but have not been able to access it. If I cannot access it, what good is it? Now to the problem: You are talking way above my head here. How does one find out what AVG calls the add-on? How does one find if McAfee has the add on? Or if it is an Add-on from Firefox? I like easiest first please. I apologize for my ignorance but all my training has been in different areas and hasn't melded together yet. Thank you for your patience. Did Facebook ever allow your DearWebby page back on line? From what little I have read on it, very little that is, they should have. I am not good there either. Sincerely, Janice Dear Janice I can understand your desire to not change. I have used Eudora for email since 1993, and don't plan to change in the forseeable future. With your Gmail account, come onto Skype and I will step you through setting that up correctly. I use a Gmail account on the side and know how it works. My Skype handle is dearwebby. Re the AVG add-on, first check FireFox Add-Ons. Click on the 3 horizontal bars for the menu. Click on the icon, that looks like a puzzle piece. That shows all your add-ons. If you see any in there, that you are not using any more, remove them. That should make it easier to search through them and spot anything related to AVG. When you find that, remove it. Weeding out the add-ons will speed up your browsing quite nicely. If you still get the AVG nuisance on the browser tabs or icons, then you have to get nasty. Click on START Paste into the run line: appwiz.cpl and hit ENTER. After a while "Programs and Features" from Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Programs and Features, opens. It's just a shortcut. If you prefer, you can slowly mouse to there. Once that has opened, you can look at all the applications installed. Look for anything starting with AVG. Unless you are planning to get McAfee, don't remove the AVG virus scanner. Look for something like "AVG Web". Once you have removed that, your FireFox won't trundle all the way back to AVG's server to check if a web site has been approved by them. If somebody often goes to dangerous sites, then they should install Malwarebytes. It checks sites quite fast and unobtrusively. Re FaceBook: No, they still insist that I use my passport name, not the name everybody knows me by. Well, that saves me at least five minutes a day. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Jenifer's big formal wedding was fast approaching and she was delighted to hear that her Mom, Sheilah, just after a nasty divorce, had finally found the perfect mother-of-the-bride dress. Two days later, she was shocked to learn that her father's new wife, Fawn, had purchased the same dress. She asked her Fawn to buy another dress since her Mom had already altered hers to fit better. Fawn refused. After two more weeks of frustrating shopping, Sheila found a dress that was not as nice as the first, but would serve. When asked by a friend what she would do with her original dress, she grinned and replied, "I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Clothespin to Store Earbuds This is a great tip I found on Pinterest to keep earbuds from getting tangled in a drawer or your purse.

Once they had moved the stove and refrigerator out of the way, it was not long before the job was done. As they were getting ready to leave, I asked them to put the heavy appliances back in place. The two men demanded $45 for this service, stating it was not in their contract. I really had no choice but to pay them. Shortly after they left, however, the doorbell rang. It was the two men. They asked me to move my car, which was blocking their van. I told them that was not in the contract, but that I would gladly do it for $50. ____________________________________________________ One day a father called his 6 children together and asked, "Now tell me, who has been most obedient during last week and did everything mother asked?"

Missing my own dog, I took theirs for a short walk. It was getting dark, and let me just say, when it gets dark out there, it gets DARK! Not even starlight because of the cloud cover. Their street was basically a circle so what could go wrong? Besides I could use the flashlight on my cell phone. However, I discovered my cell phone battery was as close to dead as it could get. Next thing I knew I was lost - on a circle street! The only available light was from passing cars, which I was trying to flag down hoping to see if anyone could tell me my location. At one point a car looked liked it was headed straight for us, so we stepped off the road and fell smack into a ditch! My first inkling that I wouldn't be walking anywhere was after crawling out and trying to put my weight on my ankle - it just flopped over. I kept trying to flag down cars, and before long a Ranger stopped; then more appeared. At that point, everything stopped, traffic and all. One ranger took the dog home, another wrote the report and two more stopped traffic. I swear they multiplied right before my eyes! A little over an hour and three ambulances later I arrived at the hospital in Flagstaff. Both bones in my ankle were broken, and my heel had been pushed forward and so far to the left it might as well have been in Utah. Of course none of that mattered, because by then I was higher than a kite and everything was hysterically funny! They have good drugs in those ambulances, and even better ones in the hospital. My happy ending: After a couple of months in physical therapy, I'm walking without assistance and without a limp! Linda Noella ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Wayne An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Michelle Yeh, 28, San Pedro, California
California high school teacher arrested for sex with a number of underage boys Former San Pedro High School substitute teacher Michelle Yeh appeared in Long Beach court Friday afternoon facing charges of sex-related allegations involving teenage boys. Yeh looked at the 15-year-old boy on the stand as he told the court about alleged sexual acts with his 28-year-old substitute biology teacher. One incident he testified happened in his bedroom. "We started having sex on the bed, but it was making a lot of noise, so we laid down on the carpet," he said. The boy, not being identified because he's a juvenile, alleged Yeh bought him an Xbox 360 and gave him money for things, including marijuana. Prosecutors allege there were more than 70 text messages between Yeh and that student. The boy is one of four alleged victims testifying in a Long Beach courtroom. Yeh plead not guilty in August to felony charges, including oral sex and unlawful sex with a minor under 16 involving two boys. She's also facing misdemeanor charges involving two other teenage boys. Yeh is in custody after allegedly violating a court order last month by texting one of the alleged victims. If convicted, Yeh could face up to nine years and eight months in prison.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Janice Re: AVG nuisance on FireFox Dear Webby, Question: My Firefox icon managed to get an AVG shield attached to it. This makes a request every time I log into the internet to make changes. It is very annoying. How can I unattached the little debugger to keep it from slowing the internet process? Janice McAfee has had a WebShield for many years, and AVG decided to copy that. Unfortunately, their copy is rather slow, especially so when you are already handicapped by Yahoo. Try to find out what exactly AVG calls that add-on, and then dump it. You should be able to UNinstall it from the control panel, programs. Depending on how closely they copied McAfee, it will be a separate application, and UNinstalling it will not kill your regular AVG. It might even be an ADD-On in FireFox. Check that first, since that would be the easiest. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ A woman from the southern part of Alabama goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is written. The obit editor informs her that the fee for the obituary is 50 cents a word. She pauses, reflects and then says, "Well, then, let it read, 'Billy Bob died'." Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor says, "Sorry ma'am, there is a 7 word minimum on all obituaries." Only a little flustered, she thinks things over and in a few seconds says, "In that case, let it read, 'Billy Bob died - 1983 Pick-up for sale.'" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Motion Detector Lights for Home Security Exterior motion detecting lights do not cost a great deal more than other types of outside lighting. Of course, they're sometimes activated by leaves blown about by the wind, but I particularly like them for the back of the house as well as the alley. Battery operated smaller versions are available for interior windows and don't require mounting or electronic know-how: simply put them on the window ledge. Anyone peering in hoping for a closer look at your possessions or wanting to break in will be under a spotlight and, if you're awake, the light going on will alert you to a potential intruder. Depending on your level of concern, consider investing in noise-making motion detectors (which can cost as little as $10 each) for your ground floor and/or basement windows. Make a note to check or replace the batteries on a regular basis. By Rose Anne Hutchence [7] You can even get motion detector (plastic) dogs, that produce a very credible bark. Have FUN!

Drunk Florida woman falls asleep in grease dumpster Anna Marzita Shinkle is charged with drunken disorderly conduct and resisting an officer after falling asleep at the Lani Kai Island Resort's grease dumpster just before 2 a.m. Saturday, according to an Lee County Sheriff's Office report. "The female was unresponsive and covered in grease with a shirt on and her pants down at her ankles," the report states. The deputy woke her up, told her he was a deputy sheriff and that the fire department was also there to help her. She responded "by stating 'go **** yourself'...then continuously stuck her middle finger up at him." and he said it didn't end there adding "she was going to cut us and **** us up." "The fire department attempted to assist the woman, but she held onto the grease dumpster making it extremely difficult to remove her." According to the report, deputies and firefighters, "warned the female that if she did not comply she would be tased... as soon as the female threatened us again and took an aggressive fighting stance, I tased the female." She then complied with officers, was transported to Health Park hospital "to have the taser probes removed" and went to jail. Shinkle is out on bond and scheduled to appear in court next month.

I have found an easier way to handle the excess grease without all the work. This is so much easier and less mess to clean up. Just brown the meat, tilt the frying pan so the grease drains to one side. Take a couple of paper towels and soak up the grease, the more grease there is the more paper towels need to be used. Remove the grease soaked paper towels and discard on a paper plate or some other type of container. Then toss the paper towels in the trash. I use this method all the time now and it's so much easier. By Ida Claire [5] Have FUN! DearWebby Instead of wasting paper towels and burning my fingers I use a plate to hold back the meat, and let the grease drain into a low, empty can, that I give to the birds. Especially in winter they love grease and crumbs. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

As the passengers were being bounced around by the turbulence, a young woman turned to a minister sitting next to her and with a nervous laugh asked, "Reverend, you're a man of God, can't you do something about this storm?"

Air New Zealand safety video ____________________________________________________ A woman was driving down the highway about 75 miles an hour, when she noticed a motorcycle policeman following her. Instead of slowing down, she picked up speed. When she looked back again, their were two motorcycles following her. She shot up to 90 miles. The next time she looked around, there were three cops following her. Suddenly, she spotted a gas station looming ahead. She screeched to a stop and ran into the ladies' room. Ten minutes later, she innocently walked out. The three cops were standing there waiting for her. Without batting an eye, she said coyly, "I'll bet none of you thought I would make it." ____________________________________________________ As the bus pulled away, Cindy realized she had left her purse under the seat. She called the company and was relieved that the driver had found it. When she went to pick it up, several off-duty bus drivers surrounded her. One man handed her her empty purse, four 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 into your purse. And we'd like to see just how you do it." ____________________________________________________ Noella's Blunders Thanks to Shantell for her blunder submission: I usually fall asleep listening to the sound of thunderstorms and rain.

NYC real estate broker was so drunk she allegedly stole a NYC taxi cab and went for a wild ride. This NY real estate broker was so drunk and wild the cab driver drove straight to the closet NYPD station to have them help him deal with her. It's a NY city cab driver who did this. They see the best and the worst of NYC, so for this cab driver to drive straight to the police station just shows how much of a drunken mess this 27 year old woman must have been. When he went into the station to get the cops, she jumped in the drivers seat and ttook off in his taxi. When the cops find her she's in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan throwing up out of the drivers window. Drinking too much is not a good look, especially for a Douglas Elliman real estate broker, no matter how cute a hypnotist she is. Stealing a cab and drunk driving will hopefully get her some time to sober up and settle down.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Michael Morlang, 26, in jail in Idaho
Utah man upset at missing his child's birth calls in bomb threat. A Utah man accused of calling in a hospital bomb threat because he was upset he couldn't attend his child's birth is now being charged in federal court. Michael Morlang was indicted Wednesday and faces up to 10 years if convicted, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Utah said in a news release. The threat led to an evacuation and lockdown on Sept. 17 at a hospital in the small central Utah city of Richfield. His wife and her father told investigators the day of the incident that Morlang made the bomb threat because he was angry about not being there for the birth, show court documents from state charges filed earlier this year. The woman's father also told investigators that Morlang was upset because he heard his wife was going to have a procedure to prevent having more pregnancies. A nurse told police she spoke with Morlang, and that he was "extremely upset that they were going forward with the birth" while he was still in Idaho. Morlang acted like he didn't know of a threat when reached by phone that day while on a bus back to Idaho, Richfield City police investigators said in court documents. They weren't able to connect with him after that. Morlang is custody in Idaho on unrelated crime. It's not clear if he has an attorney. The Utah state charge filed in September against Morlang, one count of threat of terrorism, are being dismissed now that the federal government is pursuing charges, said U.S. Attorney's Office spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rosa Maria Ortega, 35, Somerset, Texas
Non-American citizen arrested for voting in Texas — FIVE times – faces up to 20 years A Texas woman, who is not a citizen of the United States, was arrested Friday for having illegally voted in Dallas County — five times. Rosa Maria Ortega, 35, is presently a resident of the Tarrant County Jail, where she is being held on a $10,000 bond, according to the Dallas-Fort Worth NBC affiliate Channel 5 News, which reported: Ortega is married to an American and is living legally in this country, but is not a citizen and therefore, not qualified to vote, said Harry White, who supervises public integrity and white collar crime investigations for the Tarrant County District Attorney. Ortega applied to vote in Tarrant County and acknowledged on the application form that she was not a citizen, White said. The county rejected her application and notified her she was not qualified to vote. Having learned her lesson that only American citizens may vote in Texas, she re-applied five months later, this time claiming to be a U.S. citizen. Although Ortega never voted in Tarrant country, records indicate that she did so five times in neighboring Dallas county — the earliest in a 2004 Republican primary, the latest in the 2014 Republican primary. Her charges — illegal voting — is a second degree felony, punishable by a two to 20 year prison sentence. A running battle between Republicans and Democrats is centered on voter ID laws. More than 30 states currently have some form of voter ID requirement. Republicans claim that such laws are necessary as a protection against voter fraud. Democrats claim stories of voter fraud are overblown and voter ID laws amount to voter suppression.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Noella Re: Desk height for typing Dear Webby, A kitchen table is between 29-30 inches high and a desk is about 27 inches high. For the keyboard it needs the pull-out tray that is at 25 inches from the floor. Noella Dear Noella For somebody as cute as you are, those numbers are probably qite OK. For the rest of us, the guidelines are: (For fastest typing speed without causing discomfort or carpal injury) Back straight, upper arms straight perpendicular, forearms level when the heel of the palm rests on the wrist rest of the keyboard. Luckily nowadays office chairs are cheaper than kitchen chairs and are adjustable in height. For Web-TVers and "Slouch-on-the-couch" FB activists those guidelines of course need to be adjusted a bit.

She asked, "Will you be joining me in the hot tub tonight?" "Wow, how sweet. What a lovely way to spend an evening," he thought.

The meat melts like butter in your mouth. It's so good. We found mixed mini potatoes on sale at the store instead of red potatoes and I forgot to put the onions in the bag, when I made the roast this time. It was still tasty and my kids did a better job eating it, so I might leave them out on purpose next time :) I really love the oven bags for easy meals. Rib-Eye Roast can be VERY expensive so keep an eye out for sales and you can always opt to use a cheaper cut of meat. Approximate Time: 2 1/4 hours Yield: 8 Ingredients: 1 large Reynolds Oven Bag 1 Tbsp flour 1 1/2 tsp oregano 3/4 tsp pepper 1/2 tsp salt 3-3 1/2 lb ribeye roast 1 1/2 lb small red potatoes, halved (I didn't half them) 1 pkg (16 oz) baby carrots 2 med. onions (I forgot them) 1 whole bulb garlic, unpeeled 1 Tbsp butter additional salt and pepper to taste Steps: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Shake flour in oven bag. Place bag inside a large baking pan. Rub raw beef with oregano, pepper, and salt. Place beef in bag. Arrange veggies in an even layer around roast. Add extra salt and pepper if desired (I would recommend it). Cut 1 inch off the top of the garlic bulb and place in bag. I placed it top down on top of the meat. Close bag and cut 6 - 1/2 inch slits in the top of the bag. Cook for 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 hours or until meat thermometer reads 145 degrees (this took closer to 2 hours). Let meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Place vegetables and garlic in bowl and toss with 1 Tbsp. butter. Serve as a side with the sliced meat. I also served with green beans for some color and extra nutrition. Source: Reynolds By Stephanie [154] ______________________________________________________

Turn around now before it's too late!" They planned to hold up the sign to each passing car. "Get lost, you religious nuts!" yelled the first driver as he sped by. From around the curve they heard screeching tires and a big splash. "Do you think," said one to the other, "it's maybe bad luck to use the back of a Madonna poster, or maybe we should instead put it in not so religious terms and make a sign that just says 'Bridge Out' ?" ___________________________________________________
the story of Jonah - told in the cutest way
the story of Jonah - told in the cutest way ____________________________________________________ We were listening to a lecture on psychic phenomena in our Comparative Religions course. Our instructor told us about a woman who was contacted by police to assist in a missing-persons case. "She gave eerily detailed instructions on where to find the body," the teacher said. "In fact, the detectives did find the body just as she had described. Now what would you call that kind of person?" While the rest of us pondered the question, a sheriff's officer taking the course raised his hand and replied, "A suspect." ____________________________________________________ The spammers from bratan.org sent me some spam asking me to sign their petition that the death penalty for murderers and terrorists be abolished.

A few days later, my boss called me into her office and asked if I could show her how to draw a line. Thinking she wanted something exotic, I searched for a way to draw a line for her. Turned out, all she wanted was to add a line after a prompt for filling in the name, like this: ____________________ On her typewriter you could only backspacen and then underline actualtext but not empty spaces.
