The support staff whipped the marketing department soundly. To show just "how" the marketing department earns their keep, they posted this memo on the bulletin board after the game: "The Marketing Department is pleased to announce that for the 2016 Softball Season, we came in second place, having lost only one game all year. The Support Department, however, had a rather dismal season, as they won only one game and came in second-last overall." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A nurse was showing some student nurses through the hospital.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Abbie Maldonado, 30, Deltona, Floriduh Deltona woman arrested after toddler shoots out car window at school A 30-year-old Deltona woman was arrested Monday afternoon after a 3-year-old boy grabbed her loaded gun and shot out the window of a car parked at a church school, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said. Abbie Maldonado had the toddler in the car with her when she drove to the Good Shepherd Academy on Howland Boulevard to pick up her son from school shortly before 3:45 p.m., Sheriff's Office spokesman Gary Davidson said. "Maldonado got out to walk around and left the boy unsecured in the back of the vehicle with the rear passenger door propped open so she could keep an eye on the child," Davidson said. Maldonado told investigators she was walking in the parking lot with some other parents when she heard a loud bang, deputies said. She said she didn't immediately realize it was gunfire. "She went to the vehicle to check on the child and then walked around the parking lot some more," Davidson said. "Maldonado then returned to the vehicle and took the child into the school to go to the bathroom, still not realizing anything was wrong." When Maldonado returned to her car, she said she heard glass crackling and noticed the front driver’s side window shattered, Davidson said. Deputies said Maldonado walked toward the front of the church to see if anyone had seen someone by her vehicle, and upon returning to the vehicle, she noticed that her loaded gun wasn’t in the driver’s side door pocket where she had left it. "It was on the front seat," Davidson said. "Maldonado told deputies that she normally keeps the gun locked in the trunk." Maldonado received a valid concealed-carry weapon permit from the state last month, deputies said. Maldonado's boyfriend picked up the children, and she was arrested and charged with child neglect. She was freed from jail after paying bail. No one was injured in the incident. "I'm like shaking right now to think that... just a child to grab it. Thank God he didn't get hurt," said parent Mary Justino. The Department of Children and Families told Channel 9's Mike Springer that it's investigating the incident. ------------- There are book size gun safes with fingerprint recognition available, and have been for a long time. I bought one for my dad about 15 years ago. You just stick a finger into a hole on it, it checks the fingerprint, and if it recognizes the finger, it unlocks. Simple, easy, and costs less than a handgun. With kids on the loose it is indeed criminal to leave loaded guns within reach of the kids. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ann S Re: Is it OK to delete all downloads? Dear Webby Is it okay to delete all the files I downloaded??? Thanks Ann S /i> Dear Ann That is like asking if ALL women or all men are bad. Some are good and worth keeping. If you know that all files you downloaded are in the download directory, and they are all just uTube and similar stuff, that keep coming around again anyway, yes, then it would be safe to delete them all. You might have some program downloads in there too. Those you can always get again, if you ever need them. Just browse that folder and sort by type to get all pictures together, then check those. There might be a few valuable keepers in there. Also check the folders, that you have set as the default folders for email attachments and embedded files. If some of your friends use Incredimail, then those will be polluted with all the little butterflies and flowers and stuff attached to Incredimail. There could be many thousands unless you weed out that stuff occasionally. Also browse the directory where Skype saves pictures and transfers. Most of those pictures and movie clips were probably fun or important at the time, but are no longer useful. You can gain quite a bit of space there. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Best Ever Lemon-Coconut Squares By Jackie H. [228 Posts, 108 Comments] A sweet coconut twist on the ever popular lemon squares. Total Time: 20 minutes prep time 50 minutes cooking time Yield: Serves 24 Source: A little taken from a few recipes, the coconut and confectioners topping was my idea. Something different! Ingredients: 2 cups all purpose flour 1 cup confectioners' sugar 1 cup melted butter 4 eggs, beaten with mixer 2 cups white sugar 1 tsp baking powder pinch salt 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 5/8 cup Real Lemon juice 1/4 cup sifting confectioners' sugar 1/3 cup flaked coconut Steps: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease (I spray oil) and flour a 9x13 inch pan. In a medium bowl, stir together 2 cups of flour and 1 cup confectioners' sugar. Blend in melted butter. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden. In a large bowl, beat eggs with mixer until light. Combine the white sugar, baking powder, salt, and 1/4 cup of flour so there will be no flour lumps. Stir the sugar mixture into the eggs. Finally, stir in the lemon juice. Pour over the prepared crust and return to the oven. Bake for an additional 30-40 minutes or until bars are set. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares. Using a sifter, sift accross the squares with a light coating of confectioners' sugar and scatter a light coating of flake coconut. Then put in the broiler for 3-5 minutes, just to toast the coconut. Watch it carefully! Enjoy!
