But when it came time to eat, Joey's mother said with surprise, "Why didn't you give Mrs. Brown a knife and fork dear?" "I didn't think I needed to," as everyone listened as Joey explained, "I heard Daddy say she always eats like a horse." ____________________________________________________ During our church service one Sunday, a parishioner was speaking about an emotionally charged topic and had trouble controlling her tears. Finishing her remarks, she told the congregation, "I apologize for crying so much. I'm usually not such a big goob." The bishop rose to close the session and remarked, "That's okay. We like big boobs." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Ubud, Bali _____________________________________________________

The 18-year-old was waiting for a cab when Andrew Green pulled up in his white car. She mistook this for her taxi so got in. However, when she realised Green, 44, wasn't a private hire driver, he locked the doors preventing her from getting out. She said she wanted to get out of the car but he told her he wanted to give her a lift home because his daughter was the same age and he hoped someone would help her if she was on her own. She offered him 10 to get away from the situation, but he then turned aggressive. Police said he then raped her 'knowing she had nowhere to run and nowhere to hide'. Det Con Claire Hughes, of GMP's Leigh CID, added: 'It's absolutely sickening that he tried to portray himself as a Good Samaritan when his only intentions were rape.' Green, from Atherton, has was sentenced to six years and nine months in jail at Bolton Crown Court on Monday after earlier pleading guilty to rape. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Karen Re: Power Converters Dear Webby, What kind of power converters do I need for my laptop, camera and travel printer for traveling to Europe? Karen Dear Karen Most likely all you need is a light weight power bar like you use for very low power appliances like Christmas lights. Cut off the plug. When you get there, buy a cheap cord plug at any supermarket or electrical store, and put it at the cut end of your power cord. Almost all laptop and camera chargers are labeled 100V - 240V. They don't care. All you need to adapt is the plug at the end of your extension cord so that it fits into the quaint sockets, that they have over there. Most European countries use the same voltage, but differently shaped outlets, and some countries have more than one style. If you travel around much, you will soon accumulate a nice collection of plugs. Have FUN! DearWebby

A boy was watching his father, a pastor, write a sermon. "How do you know what to say?" he asked. "God tells me." "Oh, then why do you keep crossing things out?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Fruity Valentine Gelatin By joanWZ [118 Posts, 41 Comments] It's a fruity dessert for Valentine's Day! Not just for boyfriends and girlfriends but because I am a mom, for the whole family. I especially made this recipe for my two kids. Prep Time: 3 mins. Cook Time: 5 mins. Total Time: 10 mins. Ingredients: 3 cups water 1 sachet gelatin 1 cup white sugar 2 slices papaya, cut into small slices (or any fruit you want) 2 Tbsp sprinkles Steps: In a pan on low heat, add water and sachet of gelatin. adding gelatin packet Stir for 2 minutes on low heat. After 2 minutes add the sugar. Then, prepare the mold for the gelatin, and place the cut papaya fruit. After 5 minutes of stirring pour mixture through a strainer into the mold. This will eliminate lumps in the gelatin. Put it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Remove from mold. Decorate with sprinkles, chocolate chips, honey or anything you like. It is now ready to serve! Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com Make sure you use KNOX Gelatin for this recipe, NOT Jello, which is mostly sugar and 1/4 of the gelatin of a sachet of KNOX. If you use Jello, don't add sugar, and stir on low heat 5 minutes instead of 2. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________ Our Air National guard unit conducted weapons-qualifying at the firing range. We had been issued our last rounds of ammo and were firing at the silhouettes, when a great gust of wind ripped the targets from their frames, and they fluttered away. Firing stopped as we looked to the range officials. "Keep shooting, Boys," a voice yelled. "We've got 'em on the run now."
How about spending the night in an ice hotel modeled on A Game Of Thrones in Finland.
Thanks to Sandie for bringing back this classic: A business man got on an elevator. When he entered, there was a blonde already inside who greeted him with a bright, "T-G-I-F." He smiled at her and replied, "S-H-I-T." She looked puzzled and repeated, "T-G-I-F," more slowly. He again answered, "S-H-I-T." The blonde was trying to keep it friendly, so she smiled her biggest smile, and said as sweetly as possibly, "T-G-I-F." The man smiled back to her and once again, "S-H-I-T." The exasperated blonde finally decided to explain. 'T-G-I-F' means 'Thank Goodness It's Friday.' Get it, duuhhh?" The man answered, "S-H-I-T' means 'Sorry, Honey, It's Thursday." ___________________________________________________
