Today's Bonehead Award: 8 years for burning down ex-wife's house _______________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! _______________________________________________ By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity. Another man's, I mean. --- Mark Twain (1835 - 1910) _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ The young woman really thought she'd been very patient, through a protracted period of dating with no talk of marriage. One night her steady boyfriend took her to a Chinese restaurant. As he perused the menu, he casually asked her, "So, how do you like your rice? Boiled? Or fried?" Without missing a beat, she looked over her menu at him and replied clearly, "Thrown." ______________________________________________________` Amish SUV.

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Stephen Niles Jr., 36, Chandlersville, Ohio 8 years for burning down ex-wife's house
A Chandlersville man who set fire his ex-wife's home in December was sentenced to eight years in prison Monday. Stephen Niles Jr., 36, called his estranged wife repeatedly on the night of Dec. 8, demanding that she tell him where she was. "This was an ongoing thing between (Niles) and his wife," Assistant Prosecutor John Litle said during sentencing Monday. "Fueled by your methamphetamine and alcohol use, when she wouldn't answer her phone you became even more angry." After visiting several locations where he thought she might be, Niles went to her home on Candlestick Drive and made his last phone call to her from inside her residence. During a heated message he left on her voicemail, Niles threatened to burn her house down. Minutes later, the house was ablaze. "You burned her house down and left your wedding ring in the driveway," Litle said. In an earlier statement to the Times Recorder, Don Alexander, Wayne Township Fire Chief, said the blaze was reported at 2:48 a.m., Dec. 9. The structure was fully involved and the roof gone by the time fire personnel arrived on scene. Nothing from the home, which was also the location of his ex- wife's screen printing business, was salvageable. Although Niles reportedly let the family dog out, his ex-wife's cat remained in the home and was located in her bedroom deceased a few days after the blaze was extinguished. Niles pleaded guilty on May 1, to aggravated arson, attempted aggravated arson, tampering with evidence and cruelty to animals. "You didn't just take her home from her, you took her business and a lot of her memories, including her father's ashes," Judge Mark Fleegle said. "You also did damage to the neighbor's house. The fire melted the siding off of their house too." In addition to an eight-year sentence, Niles was ordered to register as an arson every year for the rest of his life. He was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount $79,500.
DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Robert Re: Where is the clipboard? Dear Webby Of all the years I've used a Computer, I don't know what the Clipboard is used for nor can I locate it. I ran a test and they said it was posted to my clipboard and I should copy the results and paste the results when sending to my ISP. Where is it? I always appreciate the advice and daily Humor. Take Care & Thank You Robert Dear Robert The clipboard is a scratch pad in RAM. If you highlight a paragraph and hit CTRL C, that paragraph is in the clipboad. When you hit CTRL V, whatever is in the clipboard is pasted to wherever the cursor is. The clipboard is not limited to text. I can copy a picture, jump to the email and hit CTRL V. The picture is then pasted into the email. That might not work with all email programs, but with Eudora it has worked fine since about '93. The clipboard is also indispensable when you work in spreadsheets. Highlight a cell or range of cells, hit CTRL C to copy, drop down to a different layer in 3D layered spreadsheets, put the cursor where you want what you copied, hit CTRL V and it is pasted. You can copy / paste from email to spreadsheets or word processors or graphics programs or web page editors and back. All of that is handled by the clipboard. You can even hit PrintScreen and copy whatever is on the screen into the clipboard, for example a cute picture in a screen saver. Then jump to a graphics program, hit CTRL V and paste the screen capture as a picture. The clipboard is a one shot deal. Whatever you copied last, is in it. You can paste it as often as you want, UNTIL you copy something else. The moment you copy something else, the previous copy is gone, forever. The clipboard is just in RAM, not on your hard drive. To see what is in the clipboard, hit CTRL V to paste it. To erase that naughty picture that you had just copied and pasted elsewhere, copy a comma or period from some text. Yep, a single period will totally obliterate and replace a 5 MB picture. When you reboot or shut down, the clipboard also gets dumped. There are programs available that let you copy a whole series of shots, but they are memory hogs and usually not worth the hassle. Have FUN! DearWebby

One day the Mexican maid announced to the Yuppette that she was quitting. When asked why, she replied, "I am in the family way." The Yuppette was both surprised and shocked and asked who it was. The maid replied, "Your husband and your son." This time, the Yuppette was horrified and demanded an explanation. "Well," the maid explained, " I go to the library to clean it and you husband say, 'You are in the way.' I go to the living room to clean and you son say 'You are in my way.' So I'm in the family way and I quit."
