Today's Bonehead Award: David Bettro admits committing 2 Westfield armed robberies while wife and infant daughter were driving getaway car ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ We live in an age when pizza gets to your home before the police. --- Jeff Marder _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Two rich men were talking over coffee and croissants at their country club one day and one of them said to the other one, "Hey, I tell you my driver is really stupid... you don't think so? Let me show you." And he called his driver Ah Beng over and said, "Jim, here is a 10 dollar bill, go to the car showroom and buy me a Mercedes." To which Jim replied, "Yes Sir! Right away!" and rushed off to the showroom. The rich man turned to his friend and said, "See, I told you he was stupid." The other rich man said, "That's nothing, you want to see stupid, I will show you stupid." And he called his driver, Ali: "Ali, go home now and check to see if I'm at home." Ali said, "Yes Sir!! Right away, Sir" and ran home. "See what I told you? He doesn't even have enough brains to know that I cannot be at home if I am here." Later on, the two drivers met on the road. Jim said to Ali, "Eh, you know my boss is sooo stupid. He gave me 10 dollars and asked me to go to the car showroom and buy him a Mercedes. Doesn't he know that today is Sunday?? The showroom is closed!" Ali replied, "You think he is stupid, huh? My boss is sooo much worse, he asked me to go home to check if he is at home....He's got a cellphone, right, he can just call home to check! Next election you can vote for them. ______________________________________________________` _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by David Bettro, 34, Springfield, Massatwoshits David Bettro admits committing 2 Westfield armed robberies while wife and infant daughter were driving getaway car A Hampden Superior Court judge last week sentenced David Bettro of Westfield to four years in state prison for committing armed robberies in Westfield while his wife and infant daughter were in his car. In addition to three armed robbery charges, Bettro pleaded guilty April 5 to two counts of reckless endangerment of a child and resisting arrest. Bettro, 34, has 198 days credit on his sentence for days spent in jail awaiting trial. Bettro was accused of robbing two Westfield businesses: the Quick Food convenience store on Southwick Road on Sept. 10 and Quality Inn on Southampton Road on Sept. 16. In both cases, Bettro threatened clerks with a firearm as his wife, Jolene Bettro, and infant daughter waited outside in their car, according to court records. Using surveillance video, Westfield police traced a vehicle parked near the Quality Inn to Bettro. The case against Jolene Bettro is still pending. She is charged with the robberies and child endangerment for allegedly driving the getaway vehicle in both cases.
From: Di Re: Reducing file size of graphics Dear DearWebby I have a question. I am trying to reduce the size of a color flyer I downloaded from a web site. It is currently an 8 mg JPG and it need to be 4 or less to send on to a person who is going to place it in a magazine. I am limited on editing programs, although, I have Microsoft picture Office Manager and I have a new laptop with Win Pic Live gallery, also picassa and Photoshop element. However, I am limited in knowledge of Photoshop elements (just learning it now). Is there anyway I can reduce the size of this flyer? It is also in a PDF format, but, that is even larger? Thank You, Di Dear Di So as not to compromise quality, I would split that flier into two pieces. If the magazine, that you are sending it to, uses low resolution or is an on-line magazine, then you can safely reduce the Dots Per Inch, which drastically cuts down the file size. I use PSP for all graphics work, and if some printer requires PDF, I export it to PDF with Open Office, then upload it to the web and send them the URL They all seem to be quite happy about it, especially since that method does not plug up their email. Have FUN! DearWebby

A college student wrote a letter home: Dear folks, I feel miserable because I have to keep writing for money. I feel ashamed and unhappy to have to ask for another hundred, but every cell in my body rebels. I beg on bended knee that you forgive me. Your son, Marvin. P.S. I felt so terrible I ran after the mailman who picked this up in the box at the corner. I wanted to take this letter and burn it. I prayed that I could get it back. But it was too late. A few days later he received a letter from his father. It said, "Your prayers were answered. Your letter never came."

As we were moving into our dorm last fall, young women wandered from room to room to see what the other students had brought to school. One student's room contained a TV, VCR, stereo system, microwave, and a number of other high-tech gadgets. She even had a Nintendo. A fellow dorm resident couldn't resist asking, "Do you play Nintendo?" The girl responded, "No, but guys do!" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Drive-in movie If you have a drive-in movie theatre near you, it can be a fun and relatively inexpensive way to see a movie as a family. Most drive-ins have no problem with you bringing in your own snacks and some even allow you to barbecue before the show. Most drive-in theaters also show a double feature. Drive-ins are almost extinct. There are only 400 of them left in the entire US. However, there are a few traveling Drive-Ins, that tour around and can be booked as fund raisers. They are extremely popular and you need to be there at least three hours early, to get a spot. But you can smoke, and you can barbecue on the tailgate. Have FUN!

Jim advised him on what stocks to buy, what to stay clear of, etc. In his list of "pointers" was the fact that George should invest only small sums. But George threw caution to the winds and six months later sent an email to Jim, "So much for your darn "pointers! Now send me some "retrievers!" ___________________________________________________

As a young man, Norton was an exceptional golfer. At the age of 26, however, he decided to become a priest and joined a rather peculiar Order. He took the usual vows of poverty and chastity, but his Order also required him to quit golf and never play again. This was rather difficult for Norton, but he agreed and was finally ordained a priest. One Sunday morning the Reverend Father Norton woke up and, realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny, early spring day, decided he just had to play golf. So, he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and convinced him to perform the sermon for him that day. As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away. This way, he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish. Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church. At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and said, "You're not going to let him get away with this, are you?" The Lord sighed and said, "No, I guess not." Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight toward the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole. IT WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE! Saint Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why did you let him do that?" The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to brag to?" ___________________________________________________
