That you may retain your self-respect, it is better to
displease the people by doing what you know is right,
than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is
wrong.

Today's Bonehead Award: Jury Convicts Naked Nanny __________________________________________ A two-engine train is on a cross-country run. After it goes some distance, one of the engines breaks down. "No problem," the engineer thinks, and carries on at half-power. Farther on down the line, the other engine breaks down, and the train comes to a standstill. The engineer decides he should inform the passengers about why the train has stopped, and makes the following announcement: "Ladies and gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that both engines have failed, and we will be stuck here for some time. The good news is that this is a train and not a plane." __________________________________________ Thanks to Jean for sending me this picture: Ceiling over St. Mary's Altar, Krakow,Poland __________________________________________ How often have we heard that television watching can be detrimental? A pastor carried that message one Sunday morning in an impassioned sermon on the evils of TV. "It steals away precious time that could be better spent on other things," he said. He advised the congregation to do what he and his family had done. "We put our TV away in the closet." "That's right," his wife muttered to the woman next to her, "and it gets awfully crowded in there!" ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jury Convicts Naked Nanny Sarah Slicker, 23, St. Petersburg, Florida Sarah Slicker. A Florida jury this week found the 23- year-old woman guilty of lewd conduct for stripping off her clothes at the request of a four-year-old boy she was babysitting. The nanny, who testified that she disrobed last January to satisfy the tyke's curiosity, was discovered naked on a couch when the child's mother returned home unexpectedly. Slicker, who now must register as a sex offender, was jailed in advance of her February 25 sentencing, at which she could receive up to 15 years in prison. Slicker, pictured above in a St. Petersburg Police Department mug shot, told cops that the incident was not sexual in nature, that she 'just wanted him to know for when he was older.

Frank Dear Frank Try (W) Windows key and Pause for your machine inventory and Control Panel (W) E Explore your hard drive (W) C Control Panel (W) D bare Desktop. Don't worry, just hit it again and all the open stuff returns. (W) D is called the BOSS key, you hit that to hide the games you were playing when you hear the boss approaching.

ALT Spacebar cr it shows you Chrome, hit Enter and it launches it. If you prefer fast keyboard action over slow mousing around, you will love it! You can also use it as an adding machine, that shows a ribbon of your input. For a lot of simple stuff, there is no need to start a spreadsheet.

Consider the respected church leader who arrives in a large city to deliver a series of speeches. At a banquet the first evening, he notices some reporters in the audience. Because he wants to use some of the stories he tells that night in his talks the next day, the minister asks the reporters to omit them from their articles. Unfortunately, one newspaper had sent a cub reporter. In his story, he outlines the minister's talk. His final paragraph: "The minister also told a number of stories that cannot be printed."

_____________________________________________ With more people traveling, the airlines seem to have more problems keeping passengers happy. At the end of one flight, however, one smiling, very satisfied fellow pauses to congratulate the flight attendant. "I want to compliment you and the crew and especially the captain for getting here right on time," he says. "It's not often anymore that an airline gets to where it's going exactly when they claim it will. I'm going to call your home office and let them know how pleased I am." "Why, thank you, sir," the flight attendant answers, "but I think you should know -- this is yesterday's flight." _____________________________________________ Consider the man who told all his friends about a delicious steak dinner he'd eaten in a new restaurant the day before. The steak was big and picture-perfect, done to perfection. So a group of his friends decided to see if it was that good, and took the man along as their guest. Much to everyone's disappointment, the waiter brought the tiniest steaks they'd ever seen, overcooked and dry. "See here," the man said to the waiter. "I was in this restaurant yesterday and you served me a big juicy steak, and now today, when I've organized a party, you serve such a shriveled up, overcooked one." "Yes, sir," replied the waiter. "But yesterday you were sitting by the window." ____________________________________________ Consider the fellow who was working on a painting of a beautiful young woman. Try as he might, he tried to concentrate on his work, but he was attracted to his model. Finally, he could resist no longer. He threw down his palette, took her in his arms and kissed her. She pushed him away. "Maybe your other models let you kiss them," she said, "But not this one." "But I've never tried to kiss a model before," he swore. "Really," she said, softening. "How many models have there been?" "Four," he replied. "A jug, two apples and a vase." _______________A_____________________________
