On her final visit to a remote township she attended a medical clinic. As the Maasai women there began to sing together, she found herself deeply moved by their hauntingly beautiful harmonies. She wanted to always remember this moment and try to share it with friends when she arrived home. With tears flowing down her cheeks, she turned to her friend and asked, "Can you please tell me the translation of the words to this song?" Her friend looked at her and solemnly replied, "If you boil the water, you won't get the shits."

"That guy must be drunk!" he said. "Every time I move over to let him pass, he slows down. When I get back on the road, he gets closer and stays on my tail." Thirty minutes later, the car turned on a set of flashing blue lights. Coming up to his window, the officer said, "Sir, I'd like you to take an alcohol test. You've been swerving on and off the road for half an hour." -------------------- That happened to me too once. However, I knew the road and decided to outrun the "drunk". His buddies were waiting for me in the next town in the morning, when I stopped for coffee. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Lillemor for this picture bfrom Sweden Sweden ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Reported by Annette An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Ronnie Music Jr., 45, Brunswick, Georgia Georgia man won $3 million in lottery, used money to build failed crystal meth empire It didn’t work out for Ronnie Music Jr., 45, who won $3 million in a scratch-off lottery game last year and decided to invest that money in a crystal meth trafficking ring, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. According to federal prosecutors, Music pleaded guilty last week on federal drug trafficking and firearms charges. His co-conspirators were caught trying to sell 11 pounds of crystal meth worth about $500,000 in September 2015. Music was then identified as the supplier, prosecutors said. He allegedly used money from his lottery win to buy the meth so he could resell it. During the investigation, agents seized more than $1 million in meth along with guns, ammunition, vehicles and $600,000 in cash. “Music decided to test his luck by sinking millions of dollars of lottery winnings into the purchase and sale of crystal meth,” said U.S. Attorney Ed Tarver. Tarver said the “unsound investment strategy” could result in a life sentence. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Kay RE: Mysterious dial-up Dear Webby, My internet dial up screen keeps poping up...not so much when I'm on the internet, but when I'm working off line...is there any thing I can do to correct this? Thanks again for all the laughs and good information that you send every day. Kay Dear Kay Usually that is a sign of some spy-ware trying to report on you, or of some mal-ware trying to dial you up via a Caribbean connection. I would most urgently advise to run MalwareBytes, McAfee, and Spybot-Search&Destroy, in that order, immediately! In very rare occasions that mystery dialling can be cause by a wrong setting in your mail program AND your dial-up set- up. If the mystery dialling stops if all Internet related programs like the mail program are shut down, then that would indicate that the mail program is trying to check the mail every so many minutes even when you are off-line. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ Two gas company servicemen, a senior training supervisor and a young trainee, were out checking meters in a suburban neighborhood. They parked their truck the end of the alley and worked their way to the other end. At the last house, a woman looking out her kitchen window watched the two men as they checked her gas meter. Finishing the meter check, the senior supervisor challenged his younger co-worker to a foot race down the alley back to the truck to prove that an older guy could outrun a younger one. As they came running up to the truck, they realized the lady from that last house was huffing and puffing right behind them. They stopped and asked her what was wrong. Gasping for breath, she replied, "When I saw two men from the gas company running as hard as you two were, I figured I'd better run too!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cocoa Brownie Recipe By Robin [5,891 Posts, 29 Comments] Ingredients 3/4 cup flour 1 cup sugar 1/4 tsp. salt 1/4 cup cocoa 1/2 cup soft butter 2 eggs 1 tsp. vanilla 1/2 cup chopped nuts Directions Greased 8x8 inch pan.

_____________________________________________________ Summer Break was over and the teacher was asking the class about their vacations. She turned to little Johnny and asked what he did over the break. "We visited my grandmother in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania," he replied. "That sounds like an excellent vocabulary word," the teacher said. "Can you tell the class how you spell 'Punxsutawney'?" Little Johnny thought about it and said, "You know, come to think of it, we went to Ohio." ___________________________________________________

While the technician was lining up her machine, I told her I have dextrocardia. "What's that?" she asked. "It means my heart is on the right side of my chest rather than on the left," I answered. "You should set up your machine to that side or the signals will be too weak and confusing." As she attached the wires, she asked casually, "Tell me, have you had that for long?" ____________________________________________________
