Barbie dragged Mike over to Sandy's table and introduced the two. Then she watched as Mike put his arm around the young woman and said in his best mock-seductive voice, "Helloooou, Sandy," whereupon Sandy broke up in roaring laughter. "You guys know each other?" Barbie asked. "We sure do," said Mike. "She's my sister."

>From Hilla I have CDO. It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, only in alphabetical order, like it should be. ______________________________________________________ At most universities some students operate a "bank" of term papers and other assignments. Nowadays you just buy a photocopy, but when I went to University you rented a hand typed copy for $5, and got $4 back if the number of smudges and beer stains had not increased noticeably. If it didn't come back or looked too badly abused, the $4 went to whoever typed up a fresh copy from the original. Officially the renter was just supposed to use the rented papers "for inspiration and as an example". Yeah, right. A similar system is in operation at the unnamed New England university where this story happened: There were papers to suit all needs and as it would look odd if an undistinguished student suddenly handed in a brilliant essay, there were papers for an A grade, B grade and C grade. A student who had spent the weekend on pursuits other than his assignment, went to the "bank" and as his course was a standard one he took out a paper for an inconspicious C, retyped it and handed the work in. In due course he received it back with the professor's comments "I wrote this paper myself twenty years ago. I always thought it should have had an A, and now I am glad to give it one!" ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by NY businessman demanded kosher meals after mile-high hooker romp to bribe cops They went from porking to kosher. The Orthodox Jewish businessman who allegedly ordered up a wild, sex-fueled plane ride to Las Vegas as a bribe for NYPD favors demanded rabbi-certified food for the return trip, The Post has learned. Real-estate investor Jona Rechnitz — who shelled out $59,000 for the round-trip travel — requested kosher deli sandwiches and a fruit platter for the group’s flight to Teterboro, NJ. But airline manifests show the same six passengers got “standard stock” meals for the outbound flight, where call girl Gabi Grecko said she had group sex with the men, including now-disgraced Deputy Inspector James Grant. Click through for her Instagram page E-mails obtained by The Post also show Rechnitz, who sources have said is cooperating with the feds in a bid for leniency, griped about having to pay the government its share for the shady getaway. “Tax is 2k each way???” he wrote on Jan. 31, 2013, two days before the trip to Sin City. “Tax is 7.5 %,” replied Keli McCabe-LaCrete of the Apollo Jets charter company. The Post revealed the details of the cross-country trip on Friday after speaking exclusively with Grecko, who is identified in court papers as “Prostitute-1.” Grecko has said Rechnitz’s pal, Jeremy Reichberg, directed the kinky action on the plane. “He’d call me a dirty slut while smacking my a--,” she recalled. She also said she was paid a paltry $1,500 for the trip, because the men placed a big bet on the San Francisco 49ers, who lost Super Bowl XLVII to the Baltimore Ravens, 34-31. She spoke briefly to reporters before a Friday meeting with her lawyer, saying her role in the alleged gifts-for-favors scheme was “very embarrassing.” “It was a dark time in my life. I had to support myself, and I had no other way to pay rent,” she said. “It’s not something I’m proud of, and I definitely don’t want it to define me or my career.” “I am a designer and a reality-TV star, etc.,” she added. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ina RE: Fuzzy zoom pictures Dear Webby, I got a good digital camera that takes excellent pictures unless I use the zoom. Then things get fuzzy. Since it's the same lens, what's the problem? Ina Dear Ina Most likely your hand is not quite as steady as you think it is. Use a sturdy tripod for zoom shots. Don't waste your money on cheap, lightweight tripods unless you have a wireless remote control for the camera. For professional quality pictures get a wooden surveyor's tripod. Not metal, real wood! Second best is fiberglass. Wood dampens vibrations from wind or the ground. Never set a tripod onto a hard road. It amplifies the tiny vibrations from the road. If you have one of those aluminum tripods that fold up really small, throw it away but keep the soft leather case. Fill the case with ice tea powder in a zip-lock plastic bag. That way you can use the case like a lead-bag and rest the camera on it. It works surprisingly well, and when you get thirsty waiting for the perfect lighting, you can make some ice tea. For really windy locations use a proper lead-bag. For that, find a really old soft leather purse with thick lining at some garage sale. Then go to a sporting goods store where they sell shotgun ammo reloading supplies and get two pounds of fine bird-shot. Fill that into the purse and glue it shut. You can then nestle the camera on the purse and you will get full zoom long distance evening shots as clear as bright daylight close-ups. Have FUN!

He is told to meet the inspector at the signal box. The inspector puts this question to him: "What would you do if you realised that two trains were heading for each other on the same track?" Andy says, "I would switch the points for one of the trains." "What if the lever broke?" asked the inspector. "Then I'd dash down out of the signal box," said Andy, "and I'd use the manual lever over there." "What if that had been struck by lightning?" "Then," Andy continues, "I'd run back into the signal box and phone the next signal box." "What if the phone was engaged?" "Well in that case," persevered Andy, "I'd rush down out of the box and use the public emergency phone at the level crossing up there." "What if that was vandalised?" "Oh well then I'd run into the village and get my uncle Tony." This puzzles the inspector, so he asks, "Why would you do that?" Came the answer, "Because his wife, my sister, keeps saying his feet smell so bad, the stench could stop a train!"

She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?" The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. "I can't dear," she said. "I have to sleep in Daddy's room."

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by California DUI suspect drives with body lodged in car for a mile, then walks away. Esteysi Sanchez Izazaga, 29, Oceanside, California A pedestrian killed in a hit-and-run flew through the front windshield of the car as the woman behind the wheel kept driving for a mile with the body lodged in the front seat, police said. She eventually parked in a cul-de-sac and walked away, police said. The crash happened in Oceanside, a San Diego County beach town, at 6:20 a.m. Monday. Witnesses reported seeing a man walking on the sidewalk along Mission Avenue when he was hit by a car. Esteysi Sanchez Izazaga, 29, who also goes by Stacy Sanchez, drove her car onto the sidewalk and hit the man at random, according to Oceanside police. Because of her speed, the victim flew into the windshield, head down, coming to a rest on the front passenger seat, police said. The man's leg detached from his body and flew through the back window, landing on the trunk of the car, police said. Izazaga continued driving for about a mile, police said, eventually parking her car in a neighborhood cul-de-sac and walking away. She is suspected of DUI. Witnesses called police, who found Izazaga a few blocks away. She was arrested and will be booked into the Vista Detention Facility. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ron RE: Getting rid of duplicates Dear Webby, I have a question about duplicate files especially music and pictures. I have windows 10 (by the way I love it) but I have had this problem since windows 98. How can get rid of these excess files? The worst is in Windows Media Player. I have even deleted files manually but they just show up again. Any help would be appreciated. Thank I also hope youyr eyes keep making improvements. Ron Dear Ron Use "SearchEverything", that I have mentioned a few times. It is at http://voidtools.com Make a folder for wav, mp3 and mp4, and so on. Then let SearchEverything search all your drives for *.wav When it has found them all, SHIFT-DRAG them to the new wav folder. When it encounters duplicates, Windows will ask you if you want to skip or move and replace. Move and replace. Checkmark "Same for all others." That gets rid of all the duplicates. Then do the same with MP3 and MP4 and whatever you want to deduplicate. There are also lots of deduplicater programs available, some of them cheap. However, if you have the free SearchEverything, you can do the same a lot faster, and without having to learn a new program. Have FUN!

It will remove most of the calcium deposit. Afterwards, scrub with steel wool or a scrubbing pad to remove any that remains. In this case, I wrapped the vinegar soaked towel around the faucet and poured more vinegar on the towel and let it sit over night. I was surprised at the results when I removed the towel. I didn't have time to do any scrubbing with steel wool, but you can tell the difference just by looking at the photos that the white vinegar removed most of the calcium deposit. I really didn't think it was going to work and I was amazed at the results Litter Gitter ______________________________________________________

Good Morning, ,

Today is Tuesday, June 28

I got talked into going on an evening hike with the library
Ramblers. Not far, they said, maybe 15 miles. Bring
dinner.

Yeah, 15 miles further than I was in shape for, all up and
down, but mostly up. Nice view from the top, then the same
route back, all down and up. I paid for having been a show-
off in my teens and twenties, and especially for being out
of shape now. 

Almost blew a gasket, but not quite. Made it back to the
car at 9 pm. Stood in the wind for a while before driving
home, made it home just as the sun was setting at 9:25.

I definitely have to get into better shape!

A new manager spends a week at his new office with the manager he is replacing. On the last day the departing manager tells him, "I have left three numbered envelopes in the desk drawer. Open an envelope if you encounter a crisis you can't solve." Three months down the track there is a major drama, everything goes wrong - the usual stuff - and the manager feels very threatened by it all. He remembers the parting words of his predecessor and opens the first envelope. The message inside says "Blame your predecessor!" He does this and gets off the hook. About half a year later, the company is experiencing a dip in sales, combined with serious product problems. The manager quickly opens the second envelope. The message read, "Reorganize!" This he does, and the company quickly rebounds. Three months later, at his next crisis, he opens the third envelope. The message inside says "Prepare three envelopes". ______________________________________________________ In a physics lab, which involved light, electricity and magnetism, one requirement of the course was to read the week's experiment before coming to class.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by 4 Houston robbers surrender after getting chased into FBI parking lot. The four Houstonians arrested by Dallas police in the short-lived chase are Chrisheena Milburn, 25, Ray Hicks, 21, Brandon Mallet, 29, and Fernando Taylor, 28. If you're going to commit a robbery, it's a good idea to have your escape plan mapped out. Four robbery suspects from Houston found that out the hard way on Tuesday in Dallas when they allegedly stole $20,000 from a Gene's Liquor Store employee at a bank northwest of downtown. As police chased them down from the scene of the crime, the four got chased straight into the FBI's parking lot. The Dallas Morning News reports Dallas police believe the three men and one woman caught are suspects in a series of "bank juggings" around Dallas, in which thieves steal from people who make large withdrawals at local banks. The four Houstonians arrested by Dallas police in the short-lived chase are Chrisheena Milburn, 25, Ray Hicks, 21, Brandon Mallet, 29, and Fernando Taylor, 28. Police were tipped off to the four robbers after seeing them driving around in a white Lexus that had paper dealer tags, according to the Dallas Morning News. Police linked the sport utility vehicle to other robberies around Dallas and were on the lookout for it. Undercover police followed the four to One World Bank at 2449 Walnut Hill Lane, the newspaper reports. That's where they attacked the liquor store employee. Taylor punched the employee while Hicks held him down, according to police records reviewed by the Dallas Morning News. The officer tailing the robbers was joined by other police officers who led the chase. The robbers were allegedly seen throwing items out the windows of the getaway vehicle by police. The chase came to an end when the SUV drove into the FBI's parking lot at 1 Justice Way. The Dallas Morning News reports the four surrendered. A bank bag with $20,000 was found behind an air-conditioning vent in the vehicle. All four were booked into the Dallas County Jail on robbery charges. Mallet, Millburn and Taylor have been released on bail. Hicks remained in jail late Thursday on a $25,000 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Frank RE: Not getting Humor letter on Weekends Dear Webby, Thank you for your concern, just so you know, I'm on a lot of peoples list but not for the same reason. Here it is Sunday morning before Church and the Humor letter has not arrived. I once again read it on line and VOTED. Then I remembered last Sunday...when I did get your letter it was actually Saturday the 18th letter. Hence I went to the site and read Sundays. Monday through Friday was fine and the letter was here early in the morning as has been the case for years. As an aside...I do not know how many years I've been on your list but I know it is in excess of a decade. An old friend W.E. Stewart, Sr. signed me up when he was in his 80's and proficient with a computer. He was a WWII Marine veteran who was on Iwo Jima during the battle and the last of his company to decease. He passed last July @ 96 yrs. and I think of him often when I see your letter. Just wanted you to know how you affect people in different ways. God Bless Frank Dear Frank Thanks for the vote! I checked the entire bounce log, which is pretty big on weekends because a lot of office workers use auto- responders to bounce mail on weekends. After downloading the 26 MB bounce log that check is actually very fast with NoteTab. 26 MB of bounces indicate that the newsletter arrived at servers OK. It said your address was not in the bounce log. That means the problem is somewhere inside of cox.net. Can you make a filter so that they don't put the Humor Letter into SPAM or Trash? Since 1994 I use a consistent header: FROM: humor@webby.com SUBJECT: Humor: Originally that was to allow people to filter the Humor Letter into a HUMOR archive or mailbox with Pegasus or Eudora. Nowadays, 22 years later, that still works to keep it from getting put into SPAM, even if I talk about computer related stuff. If you can't make filters at COX.NET, contact their support. Have FUN! DearWebby Webby, Just arrived home and read message. Went to Cox's web mail and low and behold there were Saturdays and Sundays (this week) in the Spam box. I've now marked both of them as not Spam and legitimate. I continually learn something from you every time. Cox's Spam folder did not show last Saturdays mail. Ark City does not have much choice in providers and I'm not an admirer of Cox but that is it here and I don't want to switch to gmail at this time. I'll try to keep an eye on the Cox Spam listing which I did not know they had until today. I do use Mailwasher and Eudora, my Mailwasher filter has you at the top of the list and mark as good.

The husband inquired if perhaps oral sex would be an acceptable substitute in the eyes of the Church. The Priest explained that it was still considered a perverted act and a sin; totally banned according to their faith. The wife spoke up fuming, "Look Father, you no play-a da game, you no make-a da rules!" ______________________________________________________

Brendan had spent a week visiting his family in Kentucky. His sister-in-law and seven-year-old nephew went with him when he returned to the airport. After verifying his seat number with the attendant, Brendan walked back to his relatives and said that he'd have to wait another three hours in the airport. "How come?" his nephew asked. "My plane has been grounded," Brendan explained. "Grounded?!" the little boy said.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Georgia man charged with putting feces in disabled mother's mouth Quami Dewayne Kelly, 20, Augusta, Georgia A 20-year-old Augusta man is facing charges after he put feces into his disabled mother’s mouth, police said. Quami Dewayne Kelly was booked into the Richmond County jail today on a charge of exploitation of the elderly or disabled. According to an incident report, deputies were called to Kelly’s Melrose Drive home about 7 p.m. Tuesday after his mother’s caretaker found feces in her mouth. The report states that the victim, now 45, was diagnosed with dementia several years ago, is unable to talk and requires constant care. The caretaker, who has worked with the woman for one year, told police she has noticed that recently the woman has had a foul odor to her breath but she could not figure out what was causing it. On Tuesday, the woman was lying on the couch when Kelly leaned down, kissed her goodbye and stuck something into her mouth before leaving home. The caretaker stated she thought it was chocolate until she smelled something foul and discovered the feces in her mouth. She quickly worked to remove it, resulting in getting it on her shirt, which the deputy observed on arrival. The caretaker stated she has expressed concern to Kelly’s father about how Kelly acts around his mother, saying “something has seemed strange for a few months.” Kelly’s father, who was at the residence when the deputy arrived, told police he did not understand why his son would do such a thing. He said his son refused to get a job and wanders the neighborhood day and night. The deputy stated in the incident report that Kelly “acted very uncaring when I advised him of why the police were called.” ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Blu RE: Saving Favorites Dear Webby, How do I copy and paste the Favorites List?

_____________________________________________________ A curious fellow died one day and found himself waiting in a long long line for judgment. As he stood there he noticed that some souls were allowed to march right through the gates of heaven - others, though, were led over to Satan who threw them into a burning fire pit. Every so often, instead of hurling a poor soul into the fire, Satan would toss the soul to one side in a small pile. After watching Satan do this several times, the fellow's curiosity got the better of him. So he strolled over and tapped Satan on the shoulder. "Excuse me, Prince of Darkness," he said. "I'm waiting in line for judgment, but I couldn't help wondering why are you tossing those souls aside instead of flinging them into the fires of hell with the others?" "Ah," Satan said with a grin. "Those are from Seattle ... they're too wet to burn!" ___________________________________________________

As they "oohed and aahed" the old man asked Peter how much all this was going to cost. "It's free," Peter replied. "This is heaven." Next they went out back to survey the championship golf course that the home backed up to. They would have golfing privileges every day, and each week the course would change to new one that represented one of the great golf courses on Earth. The old man asked, "What are the green fees?" Peter's reply: "This is heaven; you play for free." Next they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch with the cuisines of the world laid out. "How much to eat?" asked the old man. "Don't you understand yet? This is heaven; it is free!" Peter replied with some exasperation. "Well, where are the low-fat and low-cholesterol tables?" the old man asked timidly. Peter lectured, "That's the best part: You can eat as much as you like of whatever you like and you never get fat and you never get sick. This is heaven." With that, the old man threw down his hat, stomped on it, and shrieked wildly. Peter and his wife both tried to calm him down, asking him what was wrong.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lee Merrett jailed for punching partner and baby at Dymchurch caravan park Lee Merret 23 Dymchurch, England A mother clutched her bruised, nine-month-old child in her arms after fleeing her drunk partner on a Dymchurch caravan park. The terrified woman frantically ran to nearby homes at the New Beach Park to try to raise the alarm after bully Lee Merrett beat her and punched her baby in the face. The mum – who had been hit several times by bully Lee Merrett – banged on several doors before someone came to her aid. Now, 23-year-old Merrett has been jailed for 15 months for the assaults, which a judge described as "frankly unforgivable, disgraceful and cowardly". Prosecutor Scott Brady told Canterbury Crown Court that Merrett and the woman had come to the park for a week’s holiday last July. During the day, Merrett, 23, had downed most of a bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey before the two began arguing. Mr Brady said Merrett wanted to go and play in the amusement arcade but the woman asked him to stay with her and their child. He said: "She lay on the bed with the child in her arms when the argument began over his drinking. At this point he punched her in the face repeatedly, causing bruising and leaving her with marks near her left eye, and marks to her neck." During the argument, Merrett picked up an aerosol can and threw it at his partner, hitting her in the right arm, leaving a bruise. "Violence against a child of his age is frankly unforgivable" - Judge Simon James The prosecutor added that Merrett also punched the crying baby in the face, leaving him with a swollen black eye, before headbutting his lover in the back of the head. "It was at this point she managed to escape from the caravan and she went to a number of caravans, banging on the doors, until she found someone to let her and her child inside, and called the police," he said. Merrett, from Walsall in the West Midlands, who admitted two assaults, was found hiding under a caravan by officers. He later told police he had been drinking whiskey and lager since 7pm and had wanted to go to the arcades. The prosecutor added that she claimed she was struck 20 times during the argument and their three-year relationship was now at an end. Judge Simon James told him: "You punched your young child in the face, causing bruising. "Violence against a child of his age is frankly unforgivable. "It was a disgraceful and cowardly act. It was your job to protect your child, not subject him to violence." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Doris RE: Protect printed pictures Dear Webby, I read that printed pictures should be behind UV-protective glass if displayed on a an inside wall. Is that true and where would I get that kind of glass ? Doris Dear Doris UV does not go through glass. That is why you don't get a sun tan working inside a house. Inkjet pictures fade over time just from oxidation. Sprying them with a good varnish delays that. And naturally, a glass picture frame will protect them quite well. Laser printed pictures last much longer. They are protected by the wax, that carries the pigments. However, they too last longer if they are in a glass picture frame. Whenever somebody tries to con you into paying extra for UV-protective glass, then you know they are lying crooks. Any cheap glass will block UV. Have FUN!

I suggest that you use "Patio Paints" made by DecoArt- they are strictly for indoor/outdoor projects and I do have a few instructions leaflets for birdbaths from Terra Cotta Pots and it suggests to use these type paints. Good luck..oh, you can find them at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. I have not seen them at any Walmart. Best is a Porch & Floor paint. For a bird bath use light colors.

Today's International Bonehead Award: San Diego high school cheerleader charged in fatal beating of homeless man Details at Boneheads ______________________________________________________ Today, June 25, in 1876 Lt. Col. Custer and the 210 men of U.S. 7th Cavalry were killed by Sioux and Cheyenne Indians at Little Big Horn in Montana. The event is known as "Custer's Last Stand." More of what happened on this day in history. ______________________________________________________ It is by universal misunderstanding that all agree. For if, by ill luck, people understood each other, they would never agree. --- Charles Baudelaire (1821 - 1867) Life is a sexually transmitted disease. --- R. D.

He vaguely remembered similar events from his long gone by college days and he quickly spotted one of those serving trays with drinks on them, grabbed one and with an officious looking, fast stride skirted the crowd, trying not too hard at all at offering drinks to people. He had emptied almost every glass on the tray and was almost back to the counter where the full trays were in readiness for the hostesses to pick them up for serving. One of those approached the colonel for conversation. She said, "Excuse me, sir, but you seem to be a very serious man. Are you this way all the time, or is something bothering you?" "No," the colonel said, "just serious by nature." The young lady looked at his awards and decorations and said, "It looks like you have seen a lot of action." The colonel's short reply was, "Yes, you could say that." He didn't tell her that the ribbons and medals were for good attendance or completing first aid courses, and that "action" for a supply colonel in an Idaho training base was mostly in the back of the warehouse. The young lady, tiring of trying to start up a conversation, said, "You know, you should lighten up a little - relax and enjoy yourself." The colonel raised his eyes from his tray of drinks, which just happened to be in a straight line of sight with some attractive areas of her figure, and stared at her in his most serious manner. He had thought he was enjoying himself Finally the young lady said, "You know, I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but when is the last time you had sex?" The colonel looked at her and replied, "1955." She said, "Well there you go; you really need to chill out and quit taking everything so seriously - I mean, no sex since 1955, isn't that a little extreme?" The colonel, glancing at his watch, said in his matter-of-fact voice, "Oh, I don't know. It's only 2035 now! The evening is still young"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by San Diego high school cheerleader charged in fatal beating of homeless man Hailey Suder, 18, Preston Mostrong, 19, Austin Mostrong, 20, San Diego, California A high school cheerleader has been charged in connection with the beating death of a homeless man in San Diego County, officials said. Hailey Suder, 18, pleaded not guilty Monday to two felony counts of being an accessory after the fact, according to Tanya Sierra, spokeswoman for the San Diego County district attorney’s office. Suder was dating one of two brothers charged with killing 50 year-old George Lowery, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Sheriff’s homicide investigators did not say what role she played in Lowery’s death, and which brother she was dating. Suder was a senior at Santana High School, but did not graduate with her class this month, said Catherine Martin, spokeswoman for the Grossmont Union High School District. She was a cheerleader, Martin said. Brothers Austin Mostrong, 20, and Preston Mostrong, 19, have admitted involvement in Lowery’s beating, according to Deputy Dist. Atty. George Modlin. Lowery’s wife found him unconscious April 24 near their camp in a river bottom at Chubb Lane and North Magnolia Avenue in Santee, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. Lowery suffered severe trauma after being kicked and punched in the head. He was taken to a hospital, where he died days later. Sheriff’s investigators alleged Lowery was tortured during the attack. The Mostrong brothers were on probation at the time of the murder, and their bail was set at $3 Million. Lowery’s daughter, Katey Torres, set up a GoFundMe account to raise funds for the family’s expenses. See the most-read stories in Local News this hour >> She said her mother and father had been married 25 years. “His whole life revolved around his wife, Penny,” Torres said. “Working and doing any handy work he could to provide for him and his wife and family. Her mother, she said, found her father “brutally beaten, bloody, tied up, face down and unconscious. Covered up to die.” Torres described her father as a generous man who suffered in his last days. He had a stroke and two brain hemorrhages as a result of the beating. “Although he did not have much he was always giving,” she said. “Anyone he came across loved his personality and he was always talking to people. Anyone he saw that needed help or just needed a smile he'd be there lifting your spirits. If someone was in need he would do what he could to help, no matter how hard the task. If he came across good fortune, he shared it.” ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Art RE: What is a CSS Dear Webby, I thought I knew my way around HTML and writing web pages. Like most people, I had learned by copying pages and modifying pages, but for some reason I never figured out what CSS is about. Now I got asked in an interview if I was familiar with CSS. Of course I said I was. You better teach me right quick! Art Dear Art CSS are just Cascading Style Sheets. First you define a basic corporate style of backgrounds, fonts, colors, etc. Then you refine that with exceptions. For example you could make the normal fonts Arial, size medium. But then you can define the fonts for inside table headers to be Verdana, large. And so on. All the styles can be defined in one style sheet that is then linked to in every page. You can additionally make style sheets that apply to only one page, but use the corporate stuff and only enhance it with exceptions for that page. Using CSS ensures a consistent corporate look. It also saves a lot of wear and tear on your typing finger because once all those styles are defined, they are automatic on every page that links to the style sheet. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ At a wedding rehearsal, the minister told the father of the bride, "As you give your daughter's hand to the bridegroom, you should say something nice to him." The father, a grocery-store manager, took the advice. During the wedding ceremony, he placed the bride's hand on his son-in-law's arm and said: "No deposit, no return." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Painting a Bird Bath By Elaine [7 Posts, 32 Comments] Good morning.. I suggest that you use "Patio Paints" made by DecoArt- they are strictly for indoor/outdoor projects and I do have a few instructions leaflets for birdbaths from Terra Cotta Pots and it suggests to use these type paints. Good luck..oh, you can find them at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. I have not seen them at any Walmart. Best is a Porch & Floor paint. For a bird bath use light colors. Battleship Grey or Light Grey seem to work best. Somehow birds feel more comfortable with those colors than with dark or bright colors. Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ Recently a large seminar was held for ministers in training. Among the guests were many well-known motivational speakers. One such boldly approached the pulpit and, gathering the entire crowd's attention, said, "The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman that wasn't my wife!" The crowd was shocked! He followed up by saying, "And that woman was my mother!" The crowd burst into laughter and he gave his speech, which went over well. About a week later one of the ministers who had attended the seminar decided to use that joke in his sermon. As he shyly approached the pulpit one sunny Sunday, he tried to rehearse the joke in his head. It seemed a bit foggy to him this morning. Getting to the microphone he said loudly, "The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman that was not my wife!" His congregation sat shocked. After standing there for almost 10 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, the pastor finally blurted out, "...and I can't remember who she was!" ___________________________________________________
Bathroom prank
____________________________________________________ Each Friday night I drove my wife to the train station so she could go visit her sister who was ill. Ten minutes later, MY sister arrived by train so that she could manage our house over the weekend while my wife was gone and I was out coaching. On Sundays this procedure worked in reverse with my sister departing by train ten minutes before my wife arrived. One evening after my sister left and while I awaited my wife's arrival, a porter sauntered over. "Mister," he said, "you sure have some system going! But one of these days the 5:25 train is gonna be late and you're gonna get caught!" ____________________________________________________ Thanks to Ruth for this one: A woman was helping her computer-illiterate husband set up his computer, and at the appropriate point in the process, told him that he would now need to choose and enter a 6 character or longer password... Something he will use to log on. The husband was in a rather amorous mood and figured he would try for the shock effect to bring this to his wife's attention. So, when the computer asked him to enter his password, he made it plainly obvious to his wife that he was keying in "p e n i s". His wife fell off her chair laughing when the computer replied PASSWORD REJECTED. NOT LONG ENOUGH ____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by Penny An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Florida National Cemetery worker stole from deceased WWII veteran Kevin A. Cullen, 33, Bushnell Florida A Florida National Cemetery worker stole a deceased veteran's wallet from an urn and bought pizza and video gaming cards with the vet's credit card, Sumter County deputies say. Kevin A. Cullen, 33, of Bushnell was arrested Monday on several charges, including fraudulent use of personal identification of a deceased person and credit card theft. Cullen was responsible for interring the ashes of a 93- year-old World War II Navy torpedoman who died in late November but whose ashes were not interred until April, Sumter County deputies said. Family members were resolving the veteran's financial affairs when they found suspicious credit card charges on his accounts that occurred on the same day the veteran was interred, deputies said. Sumter detectives and a special agent from the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General met with Cullen before he reported for duty at the cemetery Monday morning. During an interview at the Sheriff's Office, deputies said he admitted to taking the deceased veteran's wallet from the urn and buying the pizza and gaming cards with the credit card. Cullen was booked in the Sumter Detention Center on $11,000 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Howard RE: Back-Up concept Dear Webby, I just got transferred to the Eastcoast and was trying to set up the same system of backing up every machine onto the next one, so that going around in a circle, everything was backed up, just like I had done in the Midwest. The girls in the offices didn't call me an idiot outright, but their eyebrows said it clear enough. For disciplinary reasons I did not want to ask them why they thought that was a stupid idea. Can you please enlighten me? Howard Dear Howard At the Eastcoast burglaries are a lot more common than in the Midwest, where you have proabbly led a very sheltered life. Where is your company's business if all the machines in that office are burglared or destroyed by fire ? The only method that is even sillier is to back up onto a second drive in the same machine. The ladies are probably used to either upload the day's new data onto the net, or onto little portable drives that they throw into their purses or pockets or vehicle or bank night deposit slot. Then if something happened to the office overnight, the insurance supplies new computers, you dump the off-site stored data into them, and by noon it's business as usual. Next time their eyebrows say "What a moron!", ask them how they are used to doing things. Willingness to learn actually earns you respect. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ That baseball bat joke reminds me of this one: A man who had just undergone a very complicated operation kept complaining about a bump on his head and a terrible headache. Since his operation had been an intestinal one, there was no earthly reason why he should be complaining of a headache. Finally his nurse, fearing that the man might be suffering from some post-operative shock, spoke to the doctor about it. The doctor assured the nurse, "Don't worry about a thing. He really does have a bump on his head. About halfway through the operation we ran out of anesthetic." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com How to Detect a Two Way Mirror When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms etc, how many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a two-way mirror? Just conduct this simple test: Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is a GENUINE mirror. However, if your fingernail directly touches the image of your nail, then BEWARE, for it is a two-way mirror! By Marti M. Editor's Note: Another way to detect whether a mirror is a two way mirror is to turn off the lights and put a flashlight up against the mirror. If there is a room behind the mirror, you will see it. ______________________________________________________

Little Johnny tried answering that one: "Well, the way your ears stick out like an open barn door, I could do it from fifty feet with my '22." ____________________________________________________ Gladys was the preacher's wife and accompanied her husband each Sunday to Church. One particular Sunday when the sermon seemed to go on forever, many in the congregation fell asleep. After the service, to be sociable, she walked up to a very sleepy looking gentleman.

Justin Meeks, 27, Pinellas, Floriduh A man who said he was angry with God was arrested after he broke a window at a church, Pinellas deputies said. It happened this week at the Church of God on 66th Street around 5 p.m. Pinellas deputies got several complaints about a man who was breaking windows at the church. When they responded to the address and started talking to the man, he told them he was angry with God. The man identified as Justin Meeks, 27, explained to them that he had lost his cellphone and that’s why he was angry. The damage to the church window is estimated at above $200. Meeks was taken to the Pinellas County jail on the charge of criminal mischief to a place of worship. His bond is set at $5,000. He’s had one previous arrest in the county in 2012. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bean RE: Instead of USB cable Dear Webby, If your new digital camera records pics onto a Compact Flash or SD card, it's a lot easier on your camera's batteries to just pop the card out, stick it in a reader and go from there. You're no longer locked into the usually clunky camera manufacturer's software, and you save lots of time moving things around. Bean Dear Bean I have recommended that countless times. The same thing still applies. Bring a USB cable up to the side of the monitor and power a USB hub with it. Then you can conveniently plug in a card reader, keyboard, mouse, and all kinds of gadgets into the USB hub, without having to crawl around under your desk. Have FUN!

It lasts longer than traditional fabric softeners. By cassie from Paragould, AR ______________________________________________________

>From Barbarella Two brawny men came to my house to install some new floor covering in the kitchen. 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 my fee: $45. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Penny for this one: WOMAN SUES HOSPITAL A recent article in the Kentucky Post reported that a woman, one Anne Maynard, has sued St. Luke's Hospital, saying that after her husband was treated there recently, he had lost all interest in sex.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Convicted sex offender asks mother of 14-year-old 'I want her, what do you want for it?' Ricky James Overhulser, 53, Lubbock, Texas A Lubbock man has been arrested and charged with attempt to compel prostitution after he allegedly approached a 14- year-old girl at a 7-11 gas station on Parkway Drive on Tuesday. The man has also been identified as a registered sex offender. According to Lubbock police documents, just after 1:30 p.m., officers responded to the gas station after reports of an attempted kidnapping. The victim, a 14-year-old girl, was fueling up her mother's car while her mother paid inside. Reports say 53-year-old Ricky James Overhulser pulled up next to the girl and told her to get into his car. The girl refused and Overhulser told her again to get in his car and she refused a second time. He then asked her if she "dated." She told him "no" and went into the store to get her mother. "She got pretty startled, as a 14-year-old would," said Lt. Ray Mendoza with the Lubbock Police Department. Police say when the mother came outside, Overhulser had driven away. She was finishing fueling up her car when he returned, pulled up close to her car and fanned cash while he asked, "how much for your daughter." The girl's mother called him a "dirty old man" and let him know she was calling police. Overhulser drove away in a white Pontiac passenger car. Mendoza says the mother and daughter were able to get a license plate number. "The detectives get called to the scene, they immediately go looking for him, try to hunt him down," he says. "We put out a broadcast to all our local officers. We reached out to DPS and the Sheriff's Department to be on the lookout." Enough information was gathered to obtain an arrest warrant late Wednesday night. "He had a couple of municipal court warrants, so they were at least, trying to arrest him while the investigators continued to work the case," Mendoza explains. Overhulser was already in the Lubbock County Jail on unrelated charges and was re-arrested on the new charges. Overhulser has been a registered sex offender since 2000, where his victim was a 16-year-old female, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety sex offender registry. He spent 10 years in jail, from 2000 until 2010. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sharon RE: USB cable connected Dear Webby, Thanks for the fun letter today. I finally did invest in a digital camera. Have just begun to read the book. I have 2 questions. 1) Would it be ok to connect the usb cable to the pc & leave it plugged in even when not connected to the camera? My connection is at the base of the pc which is on the floor & it is sometimes difficult to get down to connect it. 2) I haven't tried sending the pic to the pc yet so I can email them to family & friends but am curious as to what size would good to send. Some pics I have received have are so big they seem to take so long to download. Any size suggestions? Thanks so much for your help. This will be a new experience for me. Sharon Dear Sharon Yes, sure you can leave the cable plugged into the PC. Just put the open end into a cup, in case any chips drip out. Just kidding about anything dripping out. It is just an extension cord. Go to the Dollar Store and buy a 4 or 7 outlet USB hub, and a USB extesion cord. The camera cable usually has male ends on both sides. What you need is a proper extension cord with a female end on one side for the USB hub to plug into. Then glue the USB hub to the side of the monitor with a strip of double sided tape or crazy glue, and snug up the extension cord with a pretty ribbon or twist tie to make sure you don't roll over it with your chair or trip over it. Now you can plug the camera cable and anything else into the USB hub without crawling around under your desk and bashing your head when you stand up. For picture size, save the original indo a folder named Originals, and save resized versions with a slightly different name. Rename the Original from it's silly number to for example SunsetJune2016-L.jpg The -L is for Large. Name the resized version SunsetJune2016-.jpg, and if you make a small thumbnail, name that one SunsetJune2016.jpg. For mailing picture a width of 600 is ideal. If you have a web site, you can put monitor size pictures up there at 1024x768 or similar, and have a small picture in the mail linking to it, like I do with the Humor letter. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Thanks to Faye for this one: I did my nurse's training at a hospital in Liverpool, England. My fellow students and I had little money for meals, so we ate the awful food provided at the hospital complex. We often took our breaks in the kitchen, and sometimes kindly vistors would give us some of the treats they had brought for patients. One night a woman brought a pork pie to the kitchen and said to me, "Would you eat this up, love?" Delighted at the offer, another student and I devoured every crumb. Soon our benefactor returned, however, and asked, "Is me 'usband's pie 'ot yet, dearie?" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Permanent Marker from a Car If you want it to be EASY, grab a sponge and pour some NAIL POLISH REMOVER on the sponge, and wipe it gently or angrily, depending on how you feel, it will be like erasing writing on the white board.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Pennsylvania parents give away 14 year old daughter in exchange for financial help. Daniel Stoltzfus, Savilla Stoltzfus, Lee Kaplan A Pennsylvania couple is accused of child endangerment after police said they gave away their 14-year-old daughter to a man who helped them financially. The friend has been charged with sexually assaulting the teen, who had two children with him. Officials acting on a tip Thursday found 51-year-old Lee Kaplan at his Feasterville home, along with 12 girls ranging in age from six months to 18 years. According to an affidavit, the girl's father, Daniel Stoltzfus, told an officer he gave his daughter to Kaplan after he helped the family out of financial ruin. He told police he thought it was legal after he did some research online. Kaplan faces a number of charges including statutory sexual assault and aggravated indecent assault. Daniel Stoltzfus is charged with conspiracy of statutory sexual assault and children endangerment. His wife, Savilla Stoltzfus, is charged with endangering the welfare of a child. All three are being held on $1 million bail. No lawyer information was listed in court documents. The girl, now 18, told police she and Kaplan have a 3-year- old and a six-month-old. "This child gave birth to two other children through an inappropriate relationship," Lower Southampton Police Lt. John Krimmel said. Krimmel said the Stoltzfuses told police they were Amish, and a criminal complaint shows their address as Quarryville, in Lancaster County. However, Krimmel said it appeared the couple had been living with Kaplan, although it was unclear for how long. The Stoltzfuses told police they were going to lose their farm until Kaplan "came out of the blue and saved them from financial ruin," said Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler. The couple told police the other nine girls in the house were their children, Krimmel said. No birth certificates or Social Security cards could be located to confirm they were the parents, he said. The children have been placed in child protective custody, Krimmel said. Investigators are still piecing together what exactly happened, Heckler said, including how Kaplan and the couple met each other. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Wilson RE: Searchable Log Dear Webby, Dear Webby, I need a searchable log that does not cost an arm and a leg.

Thanks to Martin for this story: A group of Americans was traveling by tour bus through Holland. As they stopped at a cheese farm, a young guide led them through a process of cheese-making, explaining that goats' milk was used. She showed the group a lovely hillside where many goats were grazing. These, she explained, were the older goats who had been put out to pasture when they no longer produced. She then asked, "What do you do in America with your old goats?" A spry old gentleman answered, "They send us on bus tours." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Janice for this one: Reality at its best This morning I was sitting on a bench next to a homeless man and I asked him how he ended up this way.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Cincinnati, Ohio mother lets her drug dealer have sex with her 11 year old daughter as payment for heroin. April Corcoran, even let Shandell Willingham videotape it a few times. CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A Warren County woman has admitted to trading out sex with her 11-year-old daughter for heroin. April Corcoran pleaded guilty in a Hamilton County courtroom to ten charges of trafficking in persons, complicity to rape, corrupting another with drugs and child endangering. Corcoran would drop her daughter off at Shandell Willingham's Colerain Avenue apartment so he could have sex with her, say prosecutors. Sometimes, Prosecutor Joe Deters said he would videotape the encounter. Deters said Corcoran would then come back and get heroin and her daughter. Corcoran also admitted to giving her daughter heroin. Shandell is in jail in Indiana on drug and child porn charges. He still faces charges of rape, gross sexual imposition, trafficking in persons and endangering children related to this case in Hamilton County. He's expected back in Hamilton County sometime next week. Prosecutors say they accepted the plea deal to protect the victim. As a result of the plea deal, seventeen other counts were dropped. Corcoran will have to register as a sex offender when she gets out in 50 or so years. She will be sentenced July 19. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Wilson RE: Searchable Log Dear Webby, Dear Webby, I need a searchable log that does not cost an arm and a leg.

They rode several blocks before she told him to turn the first time, several more before she indicated another turn. This went on for 20 minutes - but when they finally reached the school, it proved to be only two blocks from their home. The father, much annoyed, asked his daughter why she'd led him around in such a circle. The child explained, "That's the way the school bus goes, Daddy.

A strong young man at the construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of John, one of the older workmen. After several minutes, John had enough. "Why don't you put your money where your mouth is?" he said. "I will bet a week's wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you won't be able to wheel back." "You're on, old man," the braggart replied. "It's a bet! Let's see what you got." John reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, "All right.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Utah parents charged in connection with 1-year-old daughter's heroin overdose death Cassandra Leydsman, Casey Cormani, Provo, Utah A Utah couple has been arrested months after their 1-year- old girl, Penny, died of a heroin overdose inside their friend's home in Provo, Utah. Casey Cormani, 31, and Cassandra Leydsman, 32, were cuffed and charged Tuesday with child endangerment that led to the drug-related death of their daughter in December, 2015. The pair was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, a local Fox affiliate reported. The Provo police department “conducted interviews of witnesses, interrogations of suspects, and gathered physical evidence, and toxicology reports sufficient to establish probable cause that the parents were responsible for the death of the child,” according to a release on their Facebook page. Cormani and Leydsman found Penny unresponsive and with blue lips in her crib on Dec. 2, 2015 after she was fed and put down for a nap, according to police. Leydsman attempted CPR and called paramedics, but they could not save the little girl. An autopsy later found a lethal amount of heroin and codeine in Penny’s body. The couple had been staying at the home of their friends, David and Sina Belgard, in Provo, Utah, who consented to a search of their house after Penny died. When cops searched the home, they found burnt foil, straws with burnt ends and residue both “inside of the room that Cassandra and Casey stayed in both on the ground and among Cassandra’s personal belongings,” according to a warrant. David Belgard later told cops that he had seen Leydsman and Cormani using the straws to inhale the opiates, Fox 4 reported. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Richard RE: Mac pictures on PC Dear Webby, I have a technical problem. I use an iMac and occasionally send single jpeg files as attachments (see attached). There are some people with PC's who try to open the attachment, but must save it to disc, open the proper application, and then open the file from within that application. Is this a problem with their browser? Richard Brooklyn, NY Dear Richard Your attached picture opened just fine and looks great. Those people do not have a problem with their browser. I would consider it a user malfunction or somebody pretending to be dumber than they are. JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF have always been compatible between all systems. There is a very slight color shift between the Mac and PC systems, about as much as between Kodak and Fuji films on old fashioned film type cameras. However, unless you have both systems side by side on the same desk, I doubt that you would notice the difference. It is possible that those people are just teasing you because your machine costs way more than theirs and so they think you might be more gullible. Just tell them that you built in an IQ filter, and if they can't see the picture, that would indicate that they would have to increase the brightness on the mouse operator. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Thanks to Roland for this one: Four retired guys are walking down a street in Milwaukee. Then they turn a corner and see a sign that says "Old Timer's Bar " "ALL DRINKS 10 CENTS !". They look at each other, then go in. The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, "Come on in and let me pour one for you, what'll it be, Gentlemen?" There seems to be a fully stocked bar, so the men all ask for a martini. In short order, the bartender serves up 4 iced martinis -- and says, "That'll be 10 cents each, please." They can't believe their good luck. They pay the 40 cents, finish their martinis, and order another round. Again, four excellent martinis are produced with the bartender again saying, "That's 40 more cents, please." They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity is more than they can stand. They've each had two martinis and so far they've spent less than a dollar. Finally one of the men couldn't stand it any longer and asks the bartender "How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for a dime apiece?" "Here's my story. I'm a retired tailor from Brooklyn, and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the lottery for $25 million and decided to open this place. Every drink costs a dime, wine, liquor, beer, all the same." "Wow. That's quite a story" says one of the men. The four of them sipped at their martinis and couldn't help but notice three other guys at the end of the bar who didn't have a drink in front of them, and hadn't ordered anything the whole time they were there. One man gestures at the three at the end of the bar without drinks and asks the bartender, "What's with them?" The bartender says, "They're from Florida, they're waiting for happy hour." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cooking Shirt Don't throw men's shirts into the rag bin when they become a little stained or frayed.

_____________________________________________________ A first grade teacher was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher asks, "Johnnie! What is your problem?!" Johnnie says, "I'm too smart for the first grade. My sister's in the third grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the third grade!" The teacher had had enough. As a result, she took Johnnie to the principal's office and explained Johnnie's request. While Johnnie waited in the outer office, the teacher explained the situation to the principal. The principal told Johnnie's teacher that he would give the boy a test and if Johnnie failed to answer any of the special questions he was to go back to the first grade and behave. The teacher agreed. Johnnie was brought into the room. The principal told Johnnie his terms and Johnnie agreed. Principal: "What is 3 x 3?" Johnnie: "9" Principal: "What is 6 x 6?" Johnnie: "36" Principal: "What is 9 x 9?" Johnnie: "81" And so it went with every question the principal thought a third grader should know. Johnnie appeared to have a strong case. The principal looked at the teacher and told her, "I think Johnnie can go on to the third grade." The teacher, knowing Little Johnnie's tendency toward sexually orineted wisecracks, said to the principal, "Let *me* ask him some questions before we make that decision?" The principal and Johnnie both agreed, Johnnie with a sly look on his face. The teacher began by asking, "What does a cow have 4 of that I have only 2 of?" Johnnie: "Legs." Teacher: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have in mine?" The principal's eyes open wide! Before he could stop Johnnie 's expected answer, Johnnie said, "Pockets." The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher, "I think we should put Johnnie in the fifth grade. I missed the last two questions myself!!!" ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ A man sat at a bar, drinking slowly. On his face was the saddest hangdog expression. The bartender asked, "What's the matter? Are you having troubles with your wife?" The man said, "No. It's the mother in law. As you know, she lives with us. We had a fight, and she told me that she wasn't going to speak to me for a month." The bartender said, "That should make you happy." The man said, "The month is up today!" ____________________________________________________ "I've never understood why women love cats. Cats are independent, they don't listen, they don't come in when you call, they like to stay out all night, come home and expect to be fed and stroked, then want to be left alone and sleep. In other words, every quality that women hate in a man, they love in a cat." ____________________________________________________

In their booking photos, two of the women appear to be smiling after their arrests. The assault happened on June 8 at the McDonald's in Bellevue, Ohio. According to police, the female employee was assaulted in the restaurant parking lot after the women, who are from Sandusky, thought she wasn't serving them - and their children - quickly enough. The women are identified by police as Ashley England, Mary Jordan and Sammie Whaley. They were arrested the next day after security video was used to identify them. England was charged with assault, theft and child endangerment. Jordan was charged with assault and child endangerment. The child endangerment charges are due to the fact England and Jordan had their children present with them and the children also participated in the incident. Whaley was also charged with assault. Playing dopey during their arrest will not reduce their jail time. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Christine RE: Where to report scams Dear Webby, I always enjoy your site. Just one question. I have received in my e-mail a letter from some foreigner wanting me to deposit some money or some such in my bank. Ta-da. I'm wondering where I can report this person and his spam? Thanks, Christine Dear Christine Just dump that mail in the garbage. It's only a Nigerian Scam letter. You can't report it to anybody. Imagine yourself walking into the police station and announcing: "I was trying to do some illegal money laundering, nothing big, just a few Million bucks, but then these Nigerian guys cleaned out my bank account and changed the password on me. My paycheck goes in there automatically, but now I can't even pay my phone bill !" The cops would first laugh themselves a hernia, and then charge YOU with attempted money laundering. Not a good idea. The Nigerian scams have been around for a long time and have grown to be the third largest line item in the Nigerian Gross National Product. Just dump it and beware that over the years you will probably get more similar scam letters. Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by NM man set fire to his apartment to escape neighbors’ sex noises Reuben Cook, 36, Albuquerque, New Mexico A man seeking to escape the sounds of his neighbors having sex took drastic action Sunday night when he set fire to his apartment, according to court documents. Reuben Cook, 36, told police he “tried to burn anything he could think of” in his apartment in order to spend the night in “prison” away from his neighbors, according to a criminal complaint filed in Metropolitan Court. When police arrived at the multi-story, multi-family complex at 5904 Osuna NE a little before 10 p.m. they found minor fire damage, with four separate areas of origin, in one of the apartments. When the officer asked Cook, the apartment’s tenant, to tell him about his day, Cook said “I started the fires in my apartment,” according to the complaint. “He stated that he heard people having sex upstairs and making a lot of noise,” the officer wrote in the complaint. “Mr. Cook stated that by starting the fires he could go to ‘prison’ and get away from the noise.” So the officers took him to the county jail, charging him with arson. Cook’s father, David Cook, said his son suffered from a stroke seven years ago that left him mentally impaired. “They had to remove part of his brain,” David Cook said. “He’s not in control of the things he thinks. It was not something that he planned.” Nataura Powdrell-Moore, a jail spokeswoman, said Reuben Cook was released on his own recognizance Tuesday, so that he can start more fires. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Helga RE: Free virus scanner Dear Webby, I need a virus scanner that is free to install on a bunch of machines that we are donating to an old folks home.

If the hole is larger than 3 inches by 3 inches, it will be difficult to patch, and you should consider replacing the tub. However, if your hole is still manageable, you can begin by applying the body filler over the entire hole. Step 2: Leave the body filler to cure for anywhere from six to twelve hours, depending on the size of the hole. Step 3: Go back and file over the hole with sand paper to make it feel like a natural part of your bathtub. After sanding and removing all excess automotive body filler, paint the entire patch with a color that matches your bathtub. Use a tub and tile refinishing paint or use a fiberglass paint. Your bathtub should look as good as new in as little as seven hours of your spare time. ______________________________________________________

Letter from a redneck aunt Dear Billy Joe Bob, I'm writting this slow because I know you can't read fast. We don't live where we did when you left home. Your Pa read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 minutes of your home, so we moved. I won't be able to send you the address because the last family that lived here took the trailer numbers when they moved so they wouldn't have to change their address. We still have the same phone number though, because I brought our old phone along. When you get out of jail, just call us and we will come pick you up. This place is really nice. I even has a washing machine. I'm not sure it works so well, though, Last week I put a load of clothes in and pulled the chain, we haven't seen it since. About that coat you wanted me to send; your Uncle Bubba said it would be too heavy to send in the mail with the buttons on, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets. Bubba locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were really worried because it took him two hours to get me and your father out. Your sister had a baby this morning, but I haven't found out what it is yet so I don't know if you are an aunt or uncle. The baby looks just like your brother. Uncle Bobby Ray fell into a whiskey vat last week. Some men tried to pull him out but he fought them off and eventually drowned. We had him cremated; he burned for three days and then the crematorium blew up. Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pickup truck. Butch was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. Your other two friends were in the back, they drowned because they couldn't get the tailgate down. I was going to put twenty bucks for you into this letter, but I had already sealed it. I'll send them next time. Your Favorite Aunt Edna-Sue ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Barb for this classic: Cinderella was now 75 years old. After a fulfilling life with the now departed Prince, she happily sat in her rocking chair watching the world go by with her cat Alan. One afternoon, out of nowhere, appeared her Fairy Godmother. Cinderella said: "Fairy Godmother, what are you doing here after all these years?" The Fairy Godmother replied, "Well Cinderella, since you have lived a good wholesome life since we last met, I have decided to grant you three wishes. Is there anything for which your heart still yearns? Cinderella was overjoyed. "I wish I was extremely wealthy", she said. Instantly, her rocking chair turned into solid gold. Alan, her cat, jumped off her lap and ran to the edge of the porch quivering with fear. "Oh thank you Fairy Godmother," said Cinderella. "Is there anything else you might wish for", asked the Fairy Godmother. Cinderella looked down at her frail body, and said, "I wish I was young and full of the beauty I once had." At once, her wish was granted. Cinderella felt a feeling inside her that she had not felt for years. The Fairy Godmother said, "you have one wish remaining, what shall you have?" Cinderella looked at her frightened cat in the corner and said, "I wish you turn Alan, my old cat, into a handsome young man." Magically, Alan suddenly underwent a change and then before them stood a young man with the looks and body that no other man could match. The Fairy Godmother again spoke "Congratulations Cinderella. Enjoy your new life," and with that she was gone. For a few eerie moments, Cinderella and Alan looked into each other's eyes. Cinderella sat breathless, gazing at the most stunning perfect man she had ever seen. Then Alan walked over to Cinderella and held her close in his muscular arms. He leant in close to her ear and whispered in a warm breath, "I bet that now you regret having me neutered at the vet, don't you?" ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Drunk Tennessee driver found wearing a tutu and a chastity belt on his penis. Curtis Scott Eidam 35, Oak Ridge, Tennessee There was more going on than met the eye during this bizarre DUI stop, and the eye was met by plenty. When Curtis Scott Eidam, 35, of Oak Ridge was stopped on suspicion of drunken driving at a sobriety checkpoint last month, his wardrobe immediately grabbed attention, an official said. He was wearing "some kind of red mesh see-through hose" with a ribbon tied in his goatee, said Investigator Bobby Joe Higgs of the Anderson County District Attorney General's office. Capping Eidam's outfit: "He had on some kind of little skirt," Higgs said. Others familiar with the May 14 stop called the garment a tutu. Eidam made a disclosure once in custody, according to the arrest warrant filed by Tennessee Highway Patrol Sgt. Dennis Smith — he needed a key. Eidam told officers he was wearing what he called a locked chastity belt, and it was "attached to his penis," the warrant states. One key was on his key chain, the suspect said, and the other on a necklace around his passenger's neck. That 44- year-old woman, described as "highly intoxicated" in the trooper's warrant, wasn't charged. One of the two keys was retrieved by another officer and given to Anderson County jail personnel, according to court records. Eidam is charged with DUI and possession of a handgun while under the influence. He is scheduled to appear in Anderson County General Sessions Court on July 12. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Renee RE: Print Selection Dear Webby, I like to print the tech advice.

He looks at her, she looks at him, and they go running behind the shrubbery. The angel waits patiently as the bushes rustle and giggling ensues. After fifteen minutes, the two return, out of breath and laughing. The angel tells them, "Um, you have fifteen minutes left." "Would you care to do it again?" He asks her. "Shall we?"

A child was on his first visit to the country at his grandparents'ranch and feeding the chickens fascinated him. Early one morning he caught his first glimpse of a peacock strutting in the yard. He rushed into the house, where his grandmother was making breakfast and exclaimed, "Grandma, come and see! One of the chickens is in bloom!" ______________________________________________________ The newlywed wife said to her husband when he returned from work one day, "I have great news for you. Pretty soon we're going to be three in this house instead of two." The husband started glowing with happiness. He kissed his wife and said, "Oh darling, this makes me the happiest person in the world." And she said, "I'm so happy you feel this way. I was worried that you wouldn't like my mother." ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Wichita man caught recording sex with 290 unconscious women Jordan L. Stanton, 28, Wichita, Kansas A Wichita physical therapist assistant has surrendered his license to practice after pleading guilty to charges that he sexually battered an unconscious woman in a peacock costume and secretly recorded it on video, the state Board of Healing Arts announced Monday. Jordan L. Stanton, 28, admitted in March to two counts of felony aggravated sexual battery and three counts of breach of privacy, said Lyon County prosecutor Amy Aranda. Stanton committed his crimes in 2010, before he was licensed as a physical therapist assistant by the Board of Healing Arts in 2012, the case history indicates. The charges stemmed from a police investigation finding that Stanton had used hidden cameras to record himself having sex about 290 times with a variety of women in Wichita, Derby, Emporia and Abilene, court records show. The victim in the criminal case, identified in records as “Female 1,” was unconscious and incapable of consenting to sexual activity due to the use of alcohol or drugs, Aranda said. The incidents occurred at a home in Emporia where Stanton had hidden video equipment to secretly record sexual liaisons with women, records said. In one of the two criminal incidents, the woman had been drinking at home and at a Halloween party before meeting Stanton at a bar, where she had more drinks, according to a police affidavit. They returned to his apartment, where they had consensual sex. Later, he initiated more sexual activity after the woman had passed out, leading to one of the two sexual battery charges. Stanton recorded both the consensual and nonconsensual acts using a hidden camera. The woman said she was unaware she was being recorded and did not consent to that, leading to breach of privacy charges. Another incident, with the same woman, had occurred about two weeks earlier, court records show. On Monday, the Board of Healing Arts announced that Stanton had signed a consent order surrendering his license to perform physical therapist assistant services. Neither the criminal file nor the board documents alleged that any patients were harmed by Stanton. Board officials could not immediately say where he had worked. Stanton’s crimes came to light in 2014 when he let a girlfriend use his computer to do her homework and she found a cache of videos of him having sex with several different women, the police affidavit said. Despite Stanton’s pleading with her and an offer to delete all the videos if she kept quiet, the woman turned copies she’d made on a flash drive over to police, the affidavit said. An investigator obtained a search warrant and found about 290 homemade sex videos on Stanton’s computer. The investigator was able to locate some of the women, who identified Stanton and the camouflage-patterned sheets he used in his videos. “The videos appear to have been made without the female’s knowledge or permission and the identified women have since confirmed the videos were made without their permission,” according to the affidavit by Emporia Police Detective Kelly Davis. Stanton’s admission of guilt on five charges was part of a plea bargain to settle a 22-count criminal complaint, according to court records. The plea agreement recommends a sentence of 64 months – 32 months for each of the two sexual battery charges – but leaves open the possibility of a sentence not involving prison time, records show. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ella RE: Russian Spam Dear Webby, I am getting a lot of spam that seems to originate in Russia or link to domains ending ins .ru How can I block those?

_____________________________________________________ A man had been driving all night and by morning was still far from his destination. He decided to stop at the next city he came to, and park somewhere quiet so he could get an hour or two of sleep. As luck would have it, the quiet place he chose happened to be on one of the city's major jogging routes. No sooner had he settled back to snooze when there came a knocking on his window. He looked out and saw a jogger running in place. "Yes?" "Excuse me, sir," the jogger said, "do you have the time?" The man looked at the car clock and answered, "8:15". The jogger said thanks and left. The man settled back again, and was just dozing off when there was another knock on the window and another jogger. "Excuse me, sir, do you have the time?" "8:25!" The jogger said thanks and left. Now the man could see other joggers passing by and he knew it was only a matter of time before another one disturbed him. To avoid the problem, he got out a pen and paper and put a sign in his window saying, "I do not know the time!" Once again he settled back to sleep. He was just dozing off when there was another knock on the window. "Sir, sir? It's 8:30!" ___________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Utah mom found passed out in gutter, children home with unconscious teens Amber Renee Bradley, 29, Layton, Utah A woman found passed out in a gutter was arrested after police found her children were at home where teenagers allegedly threw a party of their own with alcohol supplied by the mom, according to police. Amber Renee Bradley, 29, of Layton, was arrested Saturday for investigation of seven counts of child endangerment, intoxication and possession of a controlled substance. According to a Davis County Jail booking report, Bradley was found passed out in a gutter just after 4 a.m. Her speech "was extremely slurred," she was disoriented and needed assistance walking, the report states. Bradley mentioned something about her children, ages 8, 5, and 4, to police, stating a 15-year-old was watching them at her house around the corner, according to the jail report. But when officers went there to check on them, they found four teens, ages 14 to 16, "unconscious lying next to beer, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and Xanax" on the floor and a table next to them, according to the jail report. Bradley's children were found asleep on the floor in a separate bedroom. The teens told detectives that they had earlier been drinking with Bradley, who supplied the beer, the report states. One teen admitted to traveling to Ogden with Bradley to purchase Xanax, according to the report. She told officers she did not have a prescription for Xanax. According to court records, an eviction notice was issued against Bradley on May 24 for owing more than $1,200 in rent. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Daniel RE: Pause key Dear Webby, what keyboard has a " pause " feature ? daniel Hi Daniel ALL of them do near the right top since the 101 key keyboards in the mid 80's.

_____________________________________________________ One day a man drove his secretary to her mother's place after her mother had slipped and fallen down the stairs. Although nothing was broken, the mother was hurting and in shock and needed some help and assistance. Although this was a totally proper and formal trip, he decided not to mention it to his wife, who tended to get jealous easily. Later that night, the man and his wife were driving to a restaurant. Suddenly, he looked down and spotted a high heel shoe half hidden between the seats. Not wanting to be conspicuous, he waited until his wife was looking out her window before he scooped up the shoe and tossed it out of the window. With a sigh of relief, he pulled into the restaurant parking lot. That's when he noticed his wife squirming around in her seat. "Honey," she asked, "have you seen my other shoe?" ___________________________________________________

Thank you, Gordon!!!

Today is Tuesday, June 12, 2012
I had to laugh when Lillemor sent me an article about the 
Dept Of Justice getting frantic and trying to forbid
Florida dumping names of dead people off their voting
rolls. Apparently those tens of thousands of ghost voters
are absolutely necessary for Obama to win, and ghost
voters have worked fine in Illinois. 
Obama apparently is entitled to them!

There is one way to correct that. Leave them on the voters
rolls, but redline them.  Whenever a live person shows up
to vote for a ghost, arrest them and throw them into the
slammer for voting fraud.

Florida could easily enough make an Arpaio style tent jail
in the Everglades, guarded by alligators. And keep them
there until they come up with $100,000 bail money or a
$10,000 summary conviction fine. 

If they use the same trick with all the illegals, who were
put onto the election rolls, the fines would get the
state out of debt!

Or would that make too much sense?

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Resort Guest Doused Boy, 7, With Vodka, kicked cops Roseanna Marie Kiser, 33, North Carolina A hotel guest swigging from a liquor bottle while at the pool of a waterfront Florida resort allegedly poured vodka “directly into the eyes and face” of a seven-year-old boy who splashed water near her, according to police. As detailed in arrest affidavits, Roseanna Marie Kiser, a 33-year-old North Carolina resident, was at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort in Clearwater Monday evening when she tangled with the underage victim. Kiser, police allege, was intoxicated and “drinking from a vodka bottle” while several young children “were also swimming and playing” in the pool (seen below). Kiser reportedly became angry at the seven-year-old boy “because he was splashing water near her.” So, cops charge, she “opened her bottle of vodka and poured some of its liquid contents directly into the eyes and face” of the child. Kiser then allegedly grabbed the boy by the chest and pushed him “further away from her into the water in the pool.” Responding to a 911 call, Clearwater Police Department officers confronted Kiser (pictured above) in her hotel room. After being told multiple times that she was being ejected from the premises by hotel management, Kiser fought with cops, elbowing and kicking officers in the head, neck, and chest,” according to a felony complaint accusing her of resisting an officer with violence. During the struggle with Kiser, one patrolman was repeatedly kicked in the groin by the suspect. As a result, she was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, a felony. Kiser is also facing a felony child abuse charge. Kiser was freed from jail yesterday morning after posting a $12,750 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Leslie RE: Kasperski Dear Webby, I’ve come to the point of needing virus protection, Sad but true Do you use Kasperski, if not what do you use I run Windows 8 (I think) Hope your eyes are doing good Peace to you my friend… Dear Leslie I use McAfee.

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Shirley M for this one: One hot July day we found an old straggly cat at the door. She was a sorry sight. Starving, dirty, smelled terrible, skinny and hair all matted down. We felt sorry for her and put her in a carrier and took her to the vet. She had no name so we named her Pussycat. The vet decided to keep her for a day or so and said he would let us know when we could come and get her. My husband, [the complainer] said: "OK, but don't forget to wash her, she stinks." My husband and my vet don't see eye to eye. He calls my husband El-cheap-O. My husband calls him El-Take-O. They love to hate each other. Next day my husband had an appointment with his doctor, which was located next door to the vet. The doctor's office was full of people waiting to see the doctor. A side door opened and in leaned the vet; he had obviously seen my husband arrive. He looked straight at my husband, "Your wife's pussy is finally clean and shaved. She now smells like a rose. And by the way, I t hink she's pregnant. God knows WHO the father is!" And he closed the door. ___________________________________________________

The other day I observed a rather funny scene at the golf course across the river. A golfer became so mad that he threw his brand new looking set of golf clubs into the river. A few minutes later he came back, waded into the river, and retrieved his clubs. He proceeded to take his car keys out of the bag -- then threw the clubs back into the water. ______________________________________________________ By the time the sailor pulled into a little town, every hotel room was taken. "You've got to have a room somewhere," he pleaded with a proprietor, "or just a bed, I don't care where." "Well, I do have a double room with one occupant -- an Air Force guy," admitted the manager, "and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I'm not sure it'd be worth it to you." "No problem," the tired Navy man assured him, "I'll take it." The next morning the sailor came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. "How'd you sleep?" asked the manager. "Never better." The manager was impressed. "No problem with the other guy snoring?" "Nope, I shut him up in no time," said the Navy guy. "How'd you manage that?" asked the manager. "He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came in the room," the sailor explained. "I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, and said, 'Goodnight, beautiful,' and he sat up all night watching me." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Phyllis for sending this picture: ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Google reports St. Louis man's email account for storing child pornography Julien C. Pender, 25, St Louis, Missouri A St. Louis man was caught with thousands of child pornography images and multimedia files when Google alerted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, police say. Julien C. Pender, 25, of the 4300 block of Neosho Street, had more than 2,700 files showing children performing sex acts, according to charges filed Tuesday in St. Louis Circuit Court. Pender was caught when Google reported Pender's Gmail account and IP address, police say. Authorities connected the IP address to Pender's address and raided his home with a search warrant on June 12, 2014. In the raid, police said they seized 2,690 graphic files and 46 sexually explicit multimedia files including video of children. Pender was not in custody Wednesday. Reached by phone, he denied intentionally downloading child pornography but said he used to routinely download games, movies and TV shows. "Sometimes files get in there," Pender said. "Sometimes you get viruses. That's a risk you have. And unfortunately I downloaded things I wasn't trying to download." He also said he was "locked out" of the Gmail address Google reported to police as the one being used to store child pornography. Pender said he was unaware of the charges being filed Tuesday. "I thought all that was dropped," he said. "I thought all that was over with." Google's terms of service says the company uses automated systems to analyze content on its servers including emails to identify child pornography that passes through its systems. Google also says it reports illegal content such as child sex abuse imagery to law enforcement. Pender was charged Tuesday with two counts of felony child porn possession. Bail was set at $50,000 cash, each. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Richi RE: Is mcAfee enough?

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by NC Mother prostitutes her 2 mentally handicapped teenage daughters for $5 to $20 Teresa Vanover 52, Eden, North Carolina A mother who pleaded guilty to prostituting her two mentally disabled teenage daughters for $20 or less has been sentenced to a minimum of 20 years in prison. Teresa Vanover admitted she allowed local men to perform sexual acts on her daughters in their Eden, North Carolina neighborhood for $5, $10 or $20 bills. The money was used to pay for her husband's medical bills, as well as her crack cocaine habit. Vanover, 52, was charged 24 counts of child abuse by prostitution and 24 counts of promoting prostitution with a minor with a disability. She received the minimum 20 year sentence on three of her charges and a six-and-a-half year concurrent sentence for her other 45 charges. Vanover confessed that she would take her 15-year-old daughter to a neighborhood barber shop, a nearby boat ramp and even one of the men's mother's house. She would then allow the men to perform sexual acts on her daughter, or would make her daughter watch while she had sex with them, according to Greensboro News & Record. When the 15-year-old began to refuse, Vanover used her 13-year-old daughter instead. The 15-year-old told police months after her father died, when she realized there couldn't be any more medical bills her mother needed to pay. 'We don't have to do it anymore because daddy is dead,' the girl told police, according to transcripts read in court. Vanover was arrested in September 2015 and immediately confessed to the crimes. She also led police to four men who would be charged in the prostitution ring: Thomas 'Tommy' Woodall, Everett Ferris Jr, Donnie Carter, and Mickey Snow. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Gordon RE: Problem printing from IE Dear Webby, It looks like I need your help again. You always seem to have the answer for the unique things!! I really appreciate any suggestion you may have to fix this problem for me. Thanks Gordon I’m running Windows 7 on my computer. For the last few weeks, when trying to print from pages in Internet Explorer, all I get is a blank page with the following error message (or something similar to it) across the bottom of the page. File:///Users/GORDON~1/AppData/Local/Temp/Low/KIHDDsY2 .htm The rest of the page is blank. If I reboot my computer, it then prints okay for a short while but then, before long, it’s back to the same thing. The problem started suddenly but I can’t seem to get it to go away!! Gordon Dear Gordon Try using a modern browser like Chrome. I ditched IE 4 or 5 years ago. It is not needed. That problem will go away when you uninstall IE. Install Chrome or FireFox first and transfer your bookmarks. Using CrapCleaner might help a bit, just like rebooting does. However, that is not a fix or repair either. Trying to browse to that link will probably not reveal anything useful. Just import all your bookmarks to a better browser, then uninstall IE. Some Microsoft shills tried to scare me that I would need IE for updates. Not true at all. Windows updates just fine with Chrome. Even Microsoft dumped IE. On W10 they use a totally new browser, that doesn't have the problems of IE. For W7 I highly recommend Chrome. Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ Old Andrzej was a minister in a small Polish town. He had always been a good man and lived by the Bible. One day God decided to reward him, with the answer to any three questions Andrzej would like to ask. Old Andrzej did not need much time to consider, and the first question was: "Will there ever be married Catholic priests?" God promptly replied: "Not in your life-time." Andrzej thought for a while, and then came up with the second question: "what about female priests then, will we have that one day?" Again God had to disappoint Old Andrzej: "Not in your life-time, I'm afraid." Andrzej was sorry to hear that, and he decided to drop the subject. After having though for a while, he asked the last question: "Will there ever be another Polish pope?" God answered quickly and with a firm voice, "Not in My life time." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Some People Live Each Day As If It's The First Day Of The Rest Of April. A Bonehead Award went to a bunch of April Fools in St. Georges, Utah in 2003 Cedar City, Utah, mayor Gerald R. Sherratt, to advertise the upcoming April 1st Himmeslk festival in the city, made up a story for a newspaper advertisement, all in the April 1st spirit, explaining that the city recently discovered ancient Viking artifacts in a nearby cave. And that the artifacts ended up in the city owing to the area having once been part of a South Pacific island that became unhinged by earthquakes and tsunamis and eventually floated all the way over to Cedar City, Utah. And the story finally ends by saying that had the U.S. government not only erased all evidence of the area's history, the U.S. government would owe descendents of King Blodosk, the then Viking king, $88.7 billion. Obviously far-fetched, you say? So, what do you think happened next? Cedar City began getting calls and letters from some people in St.Georges, Utah, claiming to be descendents of King Blodosk, and laying claim to the imaginary treasures in the imaginary cave in the imaginary land. Mayor Sherratt's exasperated explanation that he made the whole thing up to promote the festival has only been met with counter claims that the he and other officials are doing a cover-up. No doubt the lawsuits will be real, but unbelievable. Does anybody have an update on that? ____________________________________________________ "Squawks" are problem listings that pilots generally leave for maintenance crews to fix before the next flight.

As a professional clown, John entertains groups at parties and company picnics. Once, an inebriated guest began heckling him in the middle of a performance, disrupting his act. Trying to ignore him wasn't working, so he used a different tactic. Slipping his arm around his shoulder, John looked him in the eye and said, "Mister, I get paid to dress up and make a fool of myself - what's your excuse?" ______________________________________________________ A housewife with four young daughters was getting dinner ready when the phone rang.

When it was finally the wife's turn to talk she took the receiver and said, "Hi, hon." "Thank goodness, lady," the voice on the other end replied. "I just called to tell you that the wallpaper you ordered is here, but those girls think the phone goes one way only!" ______________________________________________________ Gender neutral Bathroom, West Virginia ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Irish jockey gets drunk, steals car and crashes into the woman he's going to meet for their first date at 87 mph. Gets 21 months in jail. Trevor Woodside, 33, Castleview, Killyleagh, Ireland Trevor Woodside (33), was told by a judge at Downpatrick Crown Court, sitting in Newtownards, that it was an "appalling piece of driving'' which had left his victim with "significant long term injuries" both physically and psychologically sick when she discovered who the driver of the other vehicle was. Following the head-on collision, the court heard, the Volkswagen Golf of the victim spun around on the road before careering down a bank and into trees. Such was the force of the impact that the engine of VW Golf car was dislodged onto the road. The driver of the stolen black mercedes was Trevor Woodside and the female driver of the Volkswagen had been on her way to meet him. He was conscious and was complaining of a back injury. He had been drinking and he had no licence,'' said Mr Magee. The court also heard that when the car was examined, the speedometer of the Mercedes car was "frozen''at a speed of between 75-80 mph. The driver of the Volkswagen Golf was knocked unconscious. She was freed from the vehicle and taken to hospital. She underwent open surgery to address her right foot and had a plate inserted. She also sustained an injury to her chest and had a drain inserted into her chest. She had skin grafts to her foot and further surgery will be required to her foot. She spent two weeks in hospital.

I keep bumping into mango sales so I thought it's time to come up with something new. These mango lime bars are a lot like lemon bars, but less gooey, more pillowy, and of course, more mango-y! The base is a butter shortbread that will melt in your mouth, but still hold up the custardy topping. You will love these. If you prefer super tart, go with two limes instead of one; the consistency will still hold up. Approximate Time: 45 minutes Yield: 16 barsMango Lime Bars Ingredients: Crust 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 cup sugar 1/3 cup cold butter, cut into little squares Filling 3/4 cup sugar 3 Tbsp all purpose flour 2 large eggs 2 large mangoes 1 medium lime (2 if you like tart) 2 Tbsp powdered sugar (optional, for top) Steps: Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a 9x9" baking dish. (I've been successful with other sizes and pan types making bars). In a bowl, combine flour, salt, and sugar. Mix well. Cut the cold little squares of butter into the flour mixture. I just quickly squeeze them by hand until the consistency is like coarse sand. You could also use a food processor or two knives. Mango Lime BarsMango Lime Bars Dump into prepared baking dish and press firmly into an even layer. Bake for about 15 minutes at 350 F, until set at the edges. While the crust is baking, prepare the mango lime top. Peel and pit the mangoes and puree in a blender or food processor. In a bowl, whisk together sugar and flour. Beat in the eggs. Zest your lime(s) into the egg mixture, then squeeze in its juice. Mango Lime BarsMango Lime Bars Add mango puree. Mix well. Pour the mango lime filling over the hot crust when it's done baking. Spread evenly. Return baking dish to the 350 F oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the filling is set. Cool complete. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired. Cut into bars. Store bars in refrigerator. ______________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Slash, a well-known murderer, had been on death row for nearly 20 years. During that time, he had befriended the Warden. Now, the Warden still had a job to do, but that didn't stop him from treatin' Slash special from time to time. A week before Slash was to go to the electric chair, the Warden asked Slash if there was anything special he would like. Slash thought for a bit and said he would like the Warden to contact his wife and have her make meatloaf for him the rest of his life (which by this time, was short). Of course, the Warden complied and each day, Slash sat down and had a big feed of his wife's meatloaf. The night before the big day, another prisoner was allowed to visit Slash and asked him. "Aren't you afraid of dying tomorrow?" Slash answered' "I ain't gonna die tomorrow." The other prisoner then said, "but tomorrow is Friday and we all know, that's the day they're sendin' you to the electric chair." "Don't matter," said Slash, "if this meatloaf can't kill me, nothin' can." ____________________________________________________ During class, the chemistry professor was demonstrating the properties of various acids.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by West Virginia couple arrested for trying to sell her baby Ashley Harmon Jonathan Flint Layland, West Virginia Ashley Harmon and Jonathan Flint are charged with child neglect after trying to sell Harmon's 3-month-old baby for $500 to $1000. Deputies said the couple showed up at a neighbor's door and tried to get Carolyn Redden to buy the child. She refused, but took the child in to care for her. Redden did not want to show her face on camera, but she spoke to Eyewitness News about her efforts. "Why have a child if you're not going to care for it?" Redden said. "Just because it is hard doesn't mean you give up on a child." The mother ran away leaving the sick baby at Redden's home. The couple left one soiled diaper and a bottle of spoiled milk. "I ran out and got diapers and more bottles for her," Redden said. "She was shaking, clinching her fists, crying and screaming." The baby had diaper rash so badly and was so sick, Redden called 9-1-1. Her call to law enforcement may have saved the child's life. She gave names and descriptions to Fayette County detectives, and they were able to track down the couple and arrest them. Fayette County deputies said Ashley Harmon has two other children she has left in another part of the state. They also said the baby's biological father had nothing to do with this. He did not know where the mother had taken the child. The baby is currently with Child Protective Services. They will decide if the biological father will get stuck with custody. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Billie RE: Viruses and spyware Dear Webby, All this talk about spyware has gotten me worried. I have that Anti-virus program that came with my computer, isn't that enough protection? What is the diff between viruses and spys anyway? All I use the computer for is for email during work and in the evening I browse a bit and download music and the odd game. Should I be concerned ? Billie Dear Billie Yes, Billie, you should be VERY concerned. OK, first the difference between viruses and spies. Viruses spread from one user to many others. Most viruses nowadays don't harm or slow down your system, they just line it up and get it ready for remote control by a spammer or hacker. Spyware does not normally spread horizontally. It comes down to you directly from music, porno and game servers and also from spam. Spyware spies on you, extracts information that can be simply where you shop and what you buy, but it can also include sensitive information like credit card and bank info. Naturally all that snooping around and reporting slows your system down, and the more spyware you have on your machine, the more it slows down. Most of the spies just quietly snoop and don't show any easily detectable signs other than slowing you down. However, some spyware also adds "hotbars" similar to your regular task bar. Others change your modem settings so that every now and then you dial up through a 1-900 pay line. Some hijack your browser's Home Page choice and substitute theirs, others hijack your browser completely and only let you go to sites affiliated with the spies. Almost all spyware takes your addresses and the ones in your address books and sells them to spammers. There is NO spyware that is beneficial to YOU. The most immediately visible result of cleaning all spyware out of your computer is that it speeds up quite remarkably and runs just as fast as it did when it was new. You can get rid of a lot of spyware with Spybot-Search&Destroy. To get rid of viruses I recommend McAfee Have FUN!

____________________________________________________ The husband didn't want to play in the "Couples Alternate Shot Tournament" at the club, but he reluctantly agreed just for the sake of martial harmony. He got the first shot. He teed off, a par four, and fired a drive 300 yard down the middle of the fairway. When they reached the ball, he said to his wife (a novice golfer), "Just hit it towards the green, hon, anywhere around there will be fine." She proceeded to knock the ball deep into the woods. Undaunted, he said, "That's ok, dear, we'll play it." He spent five full minutes looking for the ball. He played it for the shot of his life and actually put the ball just two feet from the hole on the green. Arriving on the green he said, "Now, dear, all you have to do is knock it gently into the hole." She whacked it a good one, right off the green and into a sand trap. The husband, still retaining his composure, marched into the sand trap, summoned all of his skill, and amazingly holed the shot from there. Retrieving the ball from the hole he put his arm around his wife and calmly said, "Honey, that was a bogey -- one over par -- but that's ok. I think we can do better on the next hole." She snapped back at him, "Don't bitch at ME. Only *2* of those *FIVE* shots were mine!" ____________________________________________________ A nearsighted minister glanced at the note that Mrs. Jones had sent to him by an usher.

An American tourist in London decided to skip his tour group and explore the city on his own. He wandered around, seeing the sights, and occasionally stopping at a quaint pub to soak up the local culture, chat with the lads, and have a pint of Guinness. After awhile, he found himself in a very high class neighborhood..... big, stately residences... no pubs, no stores, no restaurants, and worst of all... NO PUBLIC RESTROOMS. He really, really had to go, after all those pints of Guinnesss. He found a narrow side street, with high walls surrounding the adjacent buildings and decided to use the wall to solve his problem. As he was unzipping, he was tapped on the shoulder by a London bobbie, who said, "I say, sir, you simply cannot do that here, you know." "I'm very sorry, officer," replied the American, "but I really, really HAVE TO GO, and I just can't find a public restroom." "Ah, yes," said the Bobbie..."Just follow me". He led him to a back "delivery alley", then along a wall to a gate which he opened. "In there," pointed the Bobbie. "Whiz away,... anywhere you want." The fellow entered and found himself in the most beautiful garden he had ever seen -- manicured grass lawns, statuary, fountains, sculptured hedges, and huge beds of gorgeous flowers, all in perfect bloom. Since he had the cop's blessing, he zipped down and unburdened himself and was greatly relieved. As he went back through the gate, he said to the bobbie, "That was really decent of you .... is that "British Hospitality?".

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Father leaves 10 year old son alone with 2 loaded guns while he goes peeping in the window of his neighbors 18 year old daughter. Chad Michael Rodrigues, 42, Brooksville, Florida A Brooksville father is accused of peering into the bedroom window of a teenage girl Tuesday night while leaving his 10- year-old son home alone with access to two loaded weapons. The incident happened in a neighborhood off of Trillum Boulevard, just east of the Suncoast Parkway. Deputies say Chad Michael Rodrigues, 42, was seen peering into the bedroom window of an 18-year-old girl by a patrol deputy. When Rodrigues was first approached, he apparently concocted a story about searching for a dog he had lost six weeks prior. When deputies didn’t buy that, he admitted he had been looking at the teenage girl, and that it wasn’t the first time. He also admitted, on one occasion, to masturbating as he looked. Following his arrest, deputies discovered Rodrigues had left his 10-year-old son home alone with access to a loaded 12- gauge shotgun and a loaded 9mm pistol. The child told deputies his father takes walks in the middle of the night all the time, and that he often wakes up to find that no one else is home. Rodrigues was charged with five counts of voyeurism and one count of child neglect. He has since posted his $10,000 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Al H RE: Strange long distance numbers Dear Webby The following message came in, warning against dialing phone numbers with certain prefixes -- that those who do so, risk having horrendous charges to their phong bill. Is this truly a danger? Or is it another email hoax? Does anyone know? I'm even leery of calling the AT&T number listed at the end this message. Al H Dear Al That warning is true. Don't call strange Caribbean numbers ! If you have to communicate to there, use email. Every hotel and every hospital there have email, and because even regular calls without scams are extremely expensive there, they all use email. When you get asked to call numbers in spam, remember: Spammers Lie ! So why should you call a lying spammer long distance ? The same with phone messages. Why would you call some telemarkerter long distance ? Just ignore them like you do (or should) ignore the spam. By the way, most phone books have maps in the front with the area codes on them, and you can always dial 0 for the operator and ask her where a certain area code is. Personally, when some stranger calls me and tells me to call some number, I hang up long before they can even say their number. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ On the outskirts of town, there was huge nut tree by the cemetery fence. One day two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me," said one boy. The bucket was so full, several rolled out toward the fence. Cycling down the road by the cemetery was a third boy. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me." He knew what it was. "Oh my," he shuddered, "It's Satan and St. Peter dividing the souls at the cemetery." He cycled down the road fast as he could and found an old man with a cane, hobbling along. "Come here quick," said the boy, "You won't believe what I heard. Satan and St. Peter are down at the cemetery dividing the souls." The man said, "Shooo, you brat, can't you see I'm finding it hard to walk as it is." But after several pleas, the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me..." The old man whispered, "Boy, you've been telling the truth. Let's see if we can see the devil himself." Shivering with fear, they peered through the fence, yet they were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of Satan. At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. And one last one for you. That's all. Now let's go get those nuts by the fence, and we'll be done." They say the old guy made it back to town five minutes before the boy with the bicycle. ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Scratches from a Toilet This tip is for anyone who has scratches in their toilet (like from a snake, etc.). This is so easy and so inexpensive! Use Comet cleanser, Bar Keeper's Friend, or similar brand and sprinkle into water. I usually sprinkle maybe 1/8 cup. Let sit for several hours. You do not have to scrub or touch it in any way. The scratches will magically disappear. I don't know how, but they do with no effort on your part. I do not know if this works with Soft Scrub or similar products. I have only tried Comet and Bar Keeper's Friend. By Kathy What you think are scratches, are actually just "writings" from metal. Porcellain is harder than any metal you are likely to have around the house. The metal just "writes" on the hard porcellain. Bar Keepers Friend or Weimans or Hydrochloric Acid dissolves the writing and leaves smooth porcellain. By the way, those cleaners are safe for a septic tank. Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Police detain woman in Santa Ana hit and run, say she changed her appearance Tracy Clapp, 36, Santa Ana, California A woman who police say hit a 26-year-old man with her car and fled after seeing him injured was taken into custody, authorities announced Sunday. Police said Tracy Clapp, 36, of Santa Ana was detained on Saturday night after a chase in a stolen car and an altercation with officers. She looked much different when she was detained than when she was spotted at the crime scene, police said at a news conference. She apparently tried to conceal her identity by wearing blue contact lenses, dyeing her hair bright pink and getting a face tattoo, said Santa Ana Cpl. Matt Wharton. Clapp was in the hospital recovering from the tussle with officers and a police dog bite, and was expected to be booked on Sunday night on suspicion of several crimes stemming from both the hit and run and the struggle with authorities, including vehicular manslaughter, felony hit and run and assault on a police officer. The announcement comes after authorities and family members appealed to the public for help finding the woman who ran a red light before hitting and severely injuring Christopher Chavez of Santa Ana. Chavez was walking in a crosswalk at Bristol Street and Central Ave. with the right of way to eat at a nearby Denny’s restaurant when he was struck on April 20 at around 2:15 a.m. Police said a woman -- in a black, BMW sedan with paper license plates -- stopped at the scene and walked up to the victim, but then drove off. Chavez was taken to Orange County Global Medical Center with serious injuries and was later declared brain-dead. A witness took a photo of her before she left. With the help of police, they offered a $20,000 reward for anyone who would help them identify the woman who fled the scene. After the family and police appealed to the public, tips came pouring in to investigators. Chavez, a drum line instructor at Saddleback High School in Santa Ana, was studying to become an emergency medical technician at Orange Coast Community College. His family was notified Saturday shortly after the 7 p.m. arrest. They met with news reporters Sunday morning outside police department headquarters. Wharton said the woman has an extensive criminal history. It was “apparent” that she knew police were looking for her, he said. On Saturday night she was traced to an area of southeast Santa Ana, where police saw her exit a house and get into a stolen car. They tried to pull her over, Wharton said, but she kept going. She fled on foot but officers confronted her and took her into custody after a scuffle and a police canine bit her arm. The dog didn't like her either. As for the $20,000 reward offered in exchange for finding the woman, Wharton said no one has been interested in the money. “There is no one interested in the reward at this time. They were just interested in leading us to her.” Chavez’s family had told the public they would be donating his organs to help others. On Sunday, they confirmed that is what happened. “It’s what he would have wanted to do,” his sister Rachel Chavez said. “Christopher will live on in other people.” ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Frank RE: Audiograbber Dear Webby It won't help with burning the audio cd but to ensure a good audio rip I found Audiograbber to be very good.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Maryland arsonist gets 55 years A 26-year-old Pasadena man, dubbed the "fire selfie" arsonist, was sentenced Friday to 55 years in jail for intentionally setting fire in 2015 to a home with three people inside of it. Justin Michael Clum was sentenced a little less than four months after he pleaded guilty to 25 counts associated with the crime, including attempted first-degree murder, first- degree arson and first-degree assault. "Mr. Clum's intentional and reckless actions in his attempt to kill one intended victim, almost killed another man, woman and child as they slept," said Wes Adams, Anne Arundel County state's attorney, said in a statement. "His actions also put 23 of our first responders in harm's way as they battled this blaze in the middle of the night." Prosecutors said that early in the morning of July 17, 2015, Clum and his girlfriend were drinking vodka on a community pier when Clum learned of a past sexual relationship between his girlfriend and another man. Clum then went and got some gasoline and drove to the man's home with his girlfriend. He poured gasoline on the front porch and set the home on fire, intending to kill the man. However the intended victim, who rented a room in the house on Wendover Road in Glen Burnie, was not home at the time of the fire. Prosecutors said three people were inside at the fire of the fire: homeowners Sandra and Brian Deal and their teen-aged daughter. All three were able to escape after the home's smoke alarms gave them warning. Fire officials said it took 23 firefighters about an hour to control the fire. The house was destroyed. Prosecutors said Clum fled the scene but returned the same day to take pictures of the burned property. "Through his willful actions, the defendant put the lives of the occupants of the home, responding firefighters and the public at risk," Anne Arundel County Fire Chief Allan Graves said in a statement. "This sentence reflects the seriousness of his actions and reflects the continued high level of cooperation between the fire department arson investigators and the state's attorney's office." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Noella, David RE: Copying CDs on XP Dear Webby [5:33:56 AM] Noellas: Windows Media player will rip a cd - already on XP - very easy to do [5:34:05 AM] Noella: I use it all the time [5:34:35 AM] Dear Webby: OK, will tell her if she writes back [5:35:25 AM] Noella: there's a tab - JUST for ripping, she can choose which tracks to rip.

I just need to change the startup files. Technician: Sir, what you described is a faulty power supply. You need to replace it. Customer: No way! Someone told me that I just had to change the system startup files to fix the problem! All I need is for you to tell me the right command. For the next ten minutes, in spite of the technician's efforts to explain the problem and its solution, the customer adamantly insisted that he was right. So, in frustration, the technician responded: Technician: I'm sorry. We don't normally tell our customers this, but there's an undocumented command that should fix the problem. Customer: I knew it! Technician: Just add the line 'LOAD NOSMOKE.COM' at the end of the autoexec.nt file and everything should work fine. Let me know how it goes. About ten minutes later, the technician received a call back from the customer. Customer: It didn't work. The power supply is still smoking. Technician: Well, what version of Windows are you using? Customer: Windows NT Technician: Well, that's your problem. That version of Windows doesn't include NOSMOKE. You'll need to contact Microsoft and ask them for a patch. Let me know how it all works out. When nearly an hour had passed, the phone rang again. Customer: I need a new power supply. Technician: How did you come to that conclusion? Customer: Well, I called Microsoft and told the technician what you said, and he started asking me questions about the make of the power supply. Technician: What did he tell you? Customer: He said my power supply isn't compatible with NOSMOKE. ____________________________________________________

I was the last to leave the office one Friday evening and managed to lock myself out without my jacket and wallet. Kneeling in a deserted hallway to try picking an electronic lock with a paper clip, I heard the seam of my suit trousers rip apart. About then I realized I needed a screwdriver to remove the lock plate, and said so, aloud. Seconds later the elevator doors next to my office opened, revealing a screwdriver in the middle of the floor. There was a crackle from the wall speaker next to the elevator. "This is security," said a sexy female voice. "There's your screwdriver. Sorry, but I don't have a needle or thread for your pants!" ----------------- Bet you that screwdriver did not help him with neither the lock nor the pants. The screws on the outside are dummies that are only intended to keep a wannabe intruder busy long enough, so that building security can call the cops or find a big stick. ______________________________________________________ The first Sunday, he only preached 10 minutes.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by 3 stooges rob a bank while on vacation, make their getaway in a taxi A daring bank robbery ended in the arrests of three Illinois vacationers. It happened Saturday morning at Fifth Third Bank in Fort Myers off Summerlin Road. Lee County Sheriff's deputies said the three suspects stole money from the bank then took off in a vehicle that stood out like a sore thumb - a taxi cab. Those suspects were identified as Bret Strusiner, 43; Paul Paynter, 52; and Karen Bajoras, 43. All three were caught not long after the crime and charged with second-degree felony robbery. At their first court appearance on Sunday, Bajoras was given $250,000 bond, while Strusiner and Paynter were given $500,000 bond. If any of them bond out, they'll have to wear a GPS ankle bracelet and have no contact with the co- defendants. Eyewitnesses who were dining next door at Ruby Tuesday when the robbery happened said the taxi was actually parked at the restaurant during the crime. Deputies said the suspects forced their way into the bank and stole an undisclosed amount of money from the bank before racing back to the taxi for a getaway. The theft set off a dye pack attached to the cash, some of which was left scattered on the road. "It's pretty obvious that it's stolen money, so they'd have a very difficult time spending it," said Cameron McLean, a former Fort Myers Police officer. The brazen attempt to make a quick escape is shocking many people in the community. "It's not the usual profile for someone who's looking to rob a bank in the middle of the day, which is a very risky thing to do," said McClean. McLean's wife, Kelly, agrees. "People always think that they're not gonna get caught and obviously these people did very quickly." All of the suspects in this case will make a second court appearance on June 27th. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Penne RE: Copying CDs Dear Webby Hello Webby, Have been receiving your newsletter for such a long time and found so many interesting tips -- for which I wish to THANK you so much. Today I have two questions and are sure you will be able to help me. 1. When I want to play certain videos my clever computer tells me I do not have the correct or up to date Flash Player, but it is updating all the time. What do you suggest I do? 2. Wanting to Rip a factory made CD, the cuts do not appear on the burned CD as on the bought one, the songs are not in the same order. Do I need some new program? Using a windows XP computer. Hope to hear from you soon. Pennie Dear Penne 1) Your Adobe Flash player might be up to date, but some videos and music CDs and DVDs require a license or code. Check with that web site. 2) My CD player died five years ago, so I am not really up to date with that, and actually have never tried ripping a bought CD. On my XP I had a program by NERO, that was theoretically able to make identical copies of CDs. I found this info on the net: How to duplicate CDs on an XP You need a program made for that. Perhaps you have it already. Common are versions Nero and Roxio. These will have a CD duplication utility. Nero has a free version. Have FUN!

"But since you're a good and faithful customer, I'll let you in on it. Fish heads. You eat enough of them, you'll be positively brilliant." "You sell them here?" the customer asks. "Only $4 apiece," says Morris. The customer buys three. A week later, he's back in the store complaining that the fish heads were disgusting and he isn't any smarter. "You didn't eat enough, " says Morris. The customer goes home with 20 more fish heads. Two weeks later, he's back and this time he's really angry. "Hey, Morris," he says, "You're selling me fish heads for $4 apiece when I just found out I can buy the whole fish for $2. You're ripping me off!" "You see?" says Morris.

He hired a caddy to guide him around the course. After another day of slices, duff shots, misread putts and bad temper, he was obviously upset. He turned to the caddy and said, "You know I must be the worst golfer in the world." The caddy replied, "nah, I don't think so.

A farmer & his hired man were eating breakfast at the local diner. Thinking of all the work they had to get done that day, the farmer told the hired man he might as well go ahead & eat his dinner too. The hired man didn't say a word, but filled his plate a second time & proceeded to eat. After awhile the farmer said, "We've got so much work to do today, you might as well eat your supper now too." Again, the hired man didn't respond but refilled his plate a third time & continued to eat.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Indiana man arrested after drinking rubbing alcohol, threatening nephews, waving sword at deputies Harley Pasley, 23, Taylorsville, Indiana Deputies arrested a man who allegedly waved a sword at them after drinking rubbing alcohol. On Monday just after 7:30 p.m., Bartholomew County sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call about domestic battery. The caller told police her brother, 23-year-old Harley Pasley of Taylorsville, was intoxicated and causing a disturbance. She said Pasley had cut her hand with glass and was threatening to hurt his nephews, ages 2 and 8. A deputy was told on the scene that Pasley had been drinking rubbing alcohol and had gone to a storage building outside. The deputy went out and said Pasley leaned out holding a cutlass sword. He allegedly began swinging it and yelling at deputies. Pasley came outside the the deputies had him at gunpoint. He refused to drop the sword at first, but eventually complied. Police say when Pasley dropped to his knees again, he reached for the sword. A deputy used his Taser at that time but it was not effective. They eventually got the sword away from Pasley and took him into custody. He was transported to Columbus Regional Hospital to be evaluated for consuming rubbing alcohol. He was then taken to the Batholomew County Jail on charges of battery and interfering with a 911 call. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ross RE: CrapCleaner Dear Webby Is CrapCleaner still around?

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Auburn man hits wife with getaway car as she is being chased by loss prevention officers. Ernest Price, 49, Cynthia Cornethan, 49, Auburn, Washington. A husband hit his wife with his pickup in a department-store parking lot in Redmond, thwarting the couple’s attempt to make off with stolen merchandise, according to King County prosecutors. A shoplifting excursion to the Kohl’s store in Redmond didn’t go as planned for a trio of thieves, even though two women managed to carry out more than $750 worth of merchandise in foil-lined shopping bags, according to King County prosecutors. One member of the alleged shoplifting team dropped the bags containing perfume, clothing, shoes and other items, along with her purse and ID, when her husband hit her with their pickup as the getaway went awry, charging papers say. The husband had intended to run down the store’s pursuing loss-prevention officer, who jumped out of the way, and the truck plowed into the driver’s wife instead, according to the documents. The wife and a second woman got in the truck, and the three sped off, according to the charges filed for the Nov. 11 incident. The suspected driver, 49-year-old Ernest Price, of Auburn, was arrested on a warrant and booked into the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent on Thursday, jail and court records show. Charged with second-degree assault and second- degree theft, Price is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail. His wife, Cynthia Cornethan, also 49, is wanted on a warrant for second-degree theft. She is also wanted on a bench warrant for a 2015 felony drug case, court records show. The couple’s female accomplice has not been identified, charging papers say. Price, Cornethan and the other woman walked into the Kohl’s store on Union Hill Road, but Price left while the two women stuffed items in the shopping bags, which were “lined with foil to defeat the security system.” The women ran through an emergency exit and were chased by the loss-prevention officer. He tried to stop them in the parking lot when Price accelerated his truck toward the officer. The officer jumped out of the way and was struck in the leg, but apparently was not seriously injured. Price “very easily could have killed someone or caused more serious injury,” Deputy Prosecutor Jessica Manca wrote in charging documents. “His actions demonstrate he is willing to use violence to further his criminal activities.” Price has an “extensive” criminal history in Washington, including felony convictions for drug possession, taking a motor vehicle, forgery and assault, as well as seven felony convictions in Minnesota, charging papers say. Since 1995, warrants have been issued for his arrest 39 times in King County, the papers say. As of 2007, Cornethan had 91 warrants issued for her arrest since 1984, say the charges. She has been convicted on 25 theft charges in the past 27 years, most of them gross misdemeanors, though she also has felony convictions for forgery, identity theft and drug possession, court records show. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ray RE: Shortcuts Dear Webby I hope you do well with your injections.

"Logic also tells me that since you have a yard, you also have a house. Is that right?" "GAWL-LEE!" the redneck shouted.

The elderly woman sitting next to me explained that she was returning to Miami after having spent two weeks visiting her six children, 18 grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren in Boston. Then she inquired what I did for a living. I told her, fully expecting her to question me for free professional advice. Instead she sat back, picked up a magazine and said, "If there's anything you want to know, just ask me." ____________________________________________________

>From Alex One night at about 3am my wife was getting up from the toilet to return to bed when she heard a little noise. It was a suspiciously rodent like sound that seemed to be right in the bathroom with her. She, of course, froze and listened attentively for any further sign of invaders. After a moment, satisfied that she was alone, she took a step for the door. Rodent scratchy sounds again! She froze, not breathing. Silence. Her heart beat fast as she once again tried to retreat from the bathroom. This time the noise was accompanied by something touching the back of her leg! That was too much to bear. She literally flew the 8 feet to the bed, clearing the foot board by a couple feet, to land screaming by my side. The culprit was right there in plain sight, a trail of toilet paper neatly marked the path from bed to the bath- room. ______________________________________________________ >From Susan During my brother's wedding, my mother managed to keep from crying---until she glanced at my grandparents. My grandmother had reached over to my grandfather's wheelchair and gently touched his hand. That was all it took to start my mother's tears flowing. After the wedding, Mom went over to my grandmother and told her how that tender gesture triggered her outburst. "Well, I'm sorry to ruin your moment," Grandmother replied, "but I was just checking if the old fart was awake. ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by NY Woman, who crashed car, went to nearby home for help. When police arrived, she ran off into the woods and fell off a cliff down 60 feet. Erika A. Barkman, 38, Voorheesville, New York The Albany County Sheriff’s Office coordinated a rope rescue at a 60-foot cliff in John Boyd Thacher State Park on Tuesday night, after a woman crashed her car against a guardrail, sought help from a nearby residence, then ran away and fell off a cliff. Erika A. Barkman, 38, of Voorheesville, was rescued while conscious and taken to Albany Medical Center. According to a hospital representative, no information about Barkman was available on Wednesday. The rescue took two hours, and began after police found the woman’s car just before 9 p.m. The bumper was missing from the front of the vehicle. An 8:49 p.m. report of an accident led sheriff’s deputies to find a green 1996 Volvo crashed into a guardrail on Thacher Park Road, its front end damaged, said a release from the sheriff's office. A witness at the scene said the driver had been tailgating and driving erratically before the crash and that she had asked the witness for help in finding her cell phone, the release said. “The witness stated the operator did not appear to be injured but was stumbling around and then climbed over the guide rail and fled into the woods,” the release said. The sheriff’s communication center then got a call from a Thacher Park Road resident saying a woman came to his door, asking for help and smelling like alcohol, the release says; she told the resident she was being “chased by cops.” When sheriff’s deputies arrived at the home, Barkman “fled into the woods,” the release says; a police dog began tracking her from the home through the woods to the edge of a cliff. “Sheriff’s deputies began yelling Erika’s name and they could hear her calling for help from the bottom of the cliff, but they were unable to see her,” the release says. The sheriff’s search and rescue unit was then called to lift her from the bottom of the cliff, the release says; once she was found, she was loaded into a rescue basket and hauled back up the cliff. Barkman was taken to Albany Medical Center by the Onesquethaw Ambulance Squad for non-life-threatening injuries sustained in the fall. “A lot of lives got put to risk tonight,” said Sheriff Craig Apple at a press conference Tuesday. He said that the police will “find out if alcohol was involved — what exactly was going on — and take it from there.” The car crash is still being investigated and officials believe alcohol may have been a contributing factor. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sharon S RE: Cleaning temporary Internet files Dear Webby in today's tech dept question re music that fades in & out occasionally, you mentioned cleaning out temporary internet file.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Floriduh Woman records herself on video buying cocaine and then shows it to the police. Kathleen Laroche, 27, Fort Pierce, Florida, If you just bought cocaine and recorded the drug deal on your own dashcam video, it might not be a good idea to show the footage to the sheriff’s deputy who pulled you over for erratic driving without a license. But that’s just what Kathleen Laroche, 27, did May 12 in Fort Pierce, according to arrest affidavits. The case began as St. Lucie County sheriff’s investigators traveled south on South 25th Street at Edwards Road and a Ford Focus sped past them. They stopped the vehicle, which Laroche was driving. Laroche apologized for weaving and speeding, and said she didn’t have a license because it was suspended. Laroche was arrested on a driving on a suspended license charge. One of the investigators noticed a dashcam type camera that was recording, and asked about the video quality. He asked if he could see the video, and Laroche said he could. “(The detective) saw that the video captured Laroche purchasing cocaine just prior to the traffic stop,” an affidavit states. Noting the accused drug seller, the detective went back to the spot and spoke to the seller, identified as 43-year-old William Hills. The investigator told Hills he’d just seen him sell Laroche cocaine on video. Hills fessed up to selling $30 worth of the drug. Laroche told investigators the cocaine was in her brassiere. A spoon with blood and drug residue on it was in her purse. Laroche, of Port St. Lucie, also was arrested on charges of cocaine possession, cocaine purchasing and possession of drug equipment. Hills, of Fort Pierce, was arrested on a cocaine selling charge. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Drew RE: Intermittent sound problems Dear Webby On occasion, when running a program, I lose the sound for a while and sometimes it comes back on.

"I couldn't even mark an "X" at election time, my hands are so crippled," volunteered a third. "What? Speak up! What? I can't hear you!" "I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck," said a fourth, to which several nodded weakly in agreement. "My blood pressure pills make me so dizzy!" exclaimed another. "I forget where I am, and where I'm going," said another. "I guess that's the price we pay for getting old," winced an old man as he slowly shook his head. The others nodded in agreement.

After removal of the rust, clean it well with soap and water, then dry it. Brush some vegetable oil on it and heat in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove and let cool. Then reapply more oil and heat for another 30 minutes. If the rust is only topical then you can rub it out using equal parts vegetable oil and salt. Then follow the instructions for the seasoning and heating from above. Good luck! By Tahloolabelle [36 Posts, 90 Comments] I knew an old Swiss Chef, who would have gotten VERY violent if somebody did that to his frying pans. He always used warm water and if necessary some salt to scour cast iron pans. After that he always immediately dried and heated them, and re-seasoned them with whatever was handy, a bacon rind, butter, or oil, and heated them until they started to smoke. His pans were slick enough to flip pancakes, omlettes, crepes, quiche, even fish. He came over from Switzerland every summer to fish, and even built a cabin near my place in the Yukon. He grew a very nice garden and fished every day until he died, while fishing. Sandpaper is silly. It just cleans the high spots. Rust is usually in the pits and pores of neglected pans. Salt or fine sand scrubs it out nicely, or even a brass suede brush. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

It is purposly almost hidden and hard to spot. Hit that "here" and set the W10 installation date to Feb 29, 2099 Please note: The "x out of here" perversion does not apply to anything else. All software and the rest of Windows use the "X" in the traditional way, like it has been used since Windows 1. Yes, I know that is extremely sleazy, but the Department of Sleaze is in a panic and freaking out about the thought, that you might escape. What is funny is that, as Cindy has found out, their legal department overrules the Department Of Sleaze. If you let it install W10, but at the end refuse to accept their terms and refuse to give all rights on everything including to not yet ordered pizza to Microsoft, then they un-install, take their marbles and waddle away in a pout. They may or may not try again, but setting the installation date to 2099 seems to work well. I did that years ago, and they have not bothered me since. Even funnier is that W10 is not really that bad. It is about as good as XP was before the Service Packs and works well enough. W10 is just klutzy and awkward because they use an awkward user interface designed by somebody's dopey niece. If you get the very popular third party Classic Shell, it is just as good as W7. So far over 15 Million people use Classic Shell. You can get it free at http://filehippo.com/download_classic_shell/ There are other shells available too, but Classic Shell is the best known and has a good forum. Hopefully Microsoft will use it in W11 or W12. Good Luck!

_____________________________________________________ Jason was having a tough day and had stretched himself out on the couch to do a bit of what he thought to be well- deserved complaining and self-pitying. He moaned to his wife, "Nobody loves me ... the whole world hates me!" His wife, busily occupied with other things, hardly looked up at and passed on this encouraging word: "That's not true, Jason. Can't be everybody. Some people don't know you." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Daughter: Mom, Can I have some money for a new dress? Mother: Go ask your father, dear. You are getting married in a month and you need the practise. ____________________________________________________ The impish girl turned on the tractor and pushed the outhouse into the creek. Later, her father told her the story of George Washington chopping down his father's cherry tree but wasn't spanked because he had told the truth. The girl proudly announced, "I cannot tell a lie. I pushed the outhouse into the creek." He told her to bend over and the shocked child protested that George Washington had not been punished. The father replied, "Well, George's father wasn't IN the cherry tree when it got chopped down!" --------------- That story inspired the Outhouse Races on Lakeelse Lake in northern BC in the 60's and early 70s. It seems the people living there now are not as adventurous as we used to be. Instead of paddling a 4 foot x 4 foot ( 1.2 m x 1.2 m ) raft with a 6 foot high outhouse on it across the lake, they now have a wine tasting party and raffle off a boat. ____________________________________________________
