______________________________________________________ A sense of humor is part of the art of leadership, of getting along with people, of getting things done. --- Dwight D.

He calmly told them, "I bought it today." "With what money?" demanded his parents. We know what a Porsche costs.." "Well," said the boy, "this one cost me fifteen dollars." So the parents began to yell even louder. "Who would sell a car like that for fifteen dollars?" they said. "It was the lady up the street," said the boy. I don't know her name-they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a Porsche for fifteen dollars." "Oh my Goodness!," moaned the mother, "she must be a child abuser. Who knows what she will do next? John, you go right up there and see what's going on." So the boy's father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived and found her out in the yard calmly planting petunias! He introduced himself as the father of the boy to whom she had sold a Porsche for fifteen dollars and demanded to know why she did it. "Well," she said, "this morning I got a phone call from my husband. I thought he was on a business trip, but learned from a friend he has run off to Hawaii with his secretary and really doesn't intend to come back. He claimed he was stranded and asked me to sell his new Porsche and send him the money. So I did." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A well known diplomat had just returned from a weekend at a stately country home. When he was asked by a friend whether or not he'd had a good time, he said, "If the soup had been as warm as the wine, the wine as old as the chicken, the chicken as tender as the upstairs maid, and the maid as willing as the Lady of the house, it would have been perfect." ______________________________________________________ Emperor Tamarin _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Ladarius Blue, 26, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Eclipse aids in arrest of Iowas most wanted sex offender Cedar Rapids Police said the solar eclipse Monday helped them capture a man on the most wanted sex offenders list. Police said the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation wanted 26-year-old Ladarius Blue of Waterloo for failing to register as a sex offender. DCI agents haven't known where Blue was since early June. The U.S. Marshals and DCI investigators had narrowed the search for Blue to Cedar Rapids. Police, DCI agents, Linn County Sheriff's Deputies, and U.S. Marshals set up surveillance on Monday in the 1300 block of G Avenue and saw Blue leave a residence in what appeared to be an attempt to observe the solar eclipse. When officers approached him, Blue ran off, leading officers on a foot chase through the northeast side of Cedar Rapids. A citizen told law enforcement they had watched a man climb into their yard waste container in the 800 block of Oakland Road NE. That's where officers arrested Blue before taking him to the Linn County Jail. Blue was convicted in 2010 in Fayette County for a lascivious act with a female child under age 13. In 2011, Blue pleaded guilty in Fayette County for failure to register as a sex offender. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Maura Re: Multiple eplorer windows Dear Webby, ... Now I can only open one browser window at a time. I used to be able to have several open at once. What shall I do? Please help! thank you, Maura Dear Maura That's probably the setting in Explorer, View, Folder Options. If you have a checkmark there telling it to re-use the open window, then it will do just that, instead of opening a new, additional window. Have FUN! DearWebby

Every morning for years, at about 11:30, the telephone operator in a small Sierra-Nevada town received a call from a man asking the exact time. One day the operator summed up nerve enough to ask him why the regularity. "I'm foreman of the local sawmill," he explained. "Every day I have to blow the whistle at noon so I call you to get the exact time." The operator giggled, "That's really funny," she said. "All this time we've been setting our clock by your whistle.

Daily tip from Crack a Nut Without a Nut Cracker No nut cracker on hand? Here are some other ways to crack a nut. 1. Use a vice grip or pliers. 2. Place the nut in a towel and hit it with a blunt option like a hammer or mallet. Tip provided by A safer way to crack nuts is to put them into a leather or canvas baggie, and hold that baggie near the hinge of an opened door, where the door and frame make an open "V". Slowly and gently closing the door part way cracks the shells of the nuts in the baggie. Slowly and gently, just in case your fingers are at the wrong end of the baggie. The door hinge vise can be used for all kinds of powerful work. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Gender specific poems: FEMALE POEM I want a man who's handsome, smart and strong. One who loves to listen all day long, One who thinks before he speaks, One who'll call, not wait for weeks. I want him to be gainfully employed, And when I spend his cash, not be annoyed. Pulls out my chair and opens my door, Massages my back and begs to do more. Oh! For a man who makes love to my mind, and knows what to answer to "how big is my behind?" I want this man to love me to no end, And forever be my very best friend. MALE POEM I want a deaf-mute nymphomaniac with huge boobs, who owns a gas station, a liquor store and a fishing boat. I know this doesn't rhyme, but I don't care. ____________________________________________________
