___________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Eugene Bergener, 50, Moranda Young, 32, Nampa, Idaho Couple Charged After Children Found in 'Unlivable' Home Infested with Spiders, Cockroaches An Idaho couple faces a number of injury to child charges after police said they found children living in a house infested with thousands of cockroaches and hundreds of spiders. Officers were dispatched to a home in the 400 block of North Bailey Avenue in Nampa, Idaho late Thursday afternoon, Aug. 15 for a welfare check. A reporting party told police she had received second-hand information that the house could be infested with cockroaches. According to reports, as two officers approached the house, they could smell a very pungent or odor of urine emitting from the residence and (when) looking in the front window, (saw) cockroaches crawling on the sofa. A resident - later identified as Eugene Bergener, 50 - allowed officers to enter and search the house. There were cobwebs on every corner and every wall, between the wall and ceiling, Officer Matt Richardson wrote in his report. In the kitchen, there were dead cockroaches all over the floor on the counters and on half-eaten food on the counter. There was a black pan that had dead cockroaches in it. There were dirty dishes that had cockroaches crawling all over them. Bergener told officers he sleeps on the couch, and the female resident later identified as Moranda Young, 32 sleeps in the master bedroom with four children. Officers learned the woman sleeps on the bed with the three youngest, and the oldest sleeps on the floor with the cockroaches, Richardson wrote in his report. The master bedroom bed (had) dead cockroaches all over it. There were also live cockroaches crawling around in the master bedroom The odor in the residence was so strong, it was burning my nose. It smelled of urine, and there were pets inside the residence as well, the officer added. According to Nampa Police Department spokesman Gary Marang, the four children who were also living in the home girls ages 1, 3, 4, and 13 are in the temporary care of Idaho Health and Welfare Department officials. It was not immediately clear how the children are related to the couple. Bergener and Young were each charged with four misdemeanor counts of injury to a child and were booked into the Canyon County Jail. Both pleaded not guilty. Bergener was also incarcerated on a probation violation for a previous crime.
DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Alex Re: Spam with my own address forged in as sender Dear Webby, I get all kinds of mail that has my address forged into the sender address. Since I DO send mail to myself as a fast way to record and file notes, I can't block my own address and spam gets through the same way. How do I filter forged addresses? Alex Dear Alex You will notice that spammers usually fake some name other than yours, but forge your address as the sender address. Put your name into the sender name field. All email programs have a way of doing that, even OE. With MailWasher it is then easy to make a filter that IF the Sender address contains AND the sender address does NOT contain "Alex B" then dump the mail automatically, don't even list it. If your address has been assigned and contains your entire first and last name, then make the sender name slightly different, for example by adding a middle initial. If the incoming mail has your email address as the sender, but does not have that middle initial, then it gets quietly murdered in the backround and dumped, unseen. Have FUN! DearWebby
Automatically move ALL your settings and programs. My friend had a wedding to go to, and needed a wedding gift. Aha, she thought, I have that monogrammed silver tray from my wedding that I never use. I'll just take it to a silversmith and have him remove my monogram and put hers on it. Voila, one cheap wedding present." She took it to the silversmith and asked him to remove her monogram and put the new one on. The silversmith examined the tray carefully, shook his head and said, "Lady, this can only be done so many times!"

"According to 'Mondern Bride' magazine, the average bride spends 150 hours planning her wedding. The average groom spends 150 hours going, 'Yeah, sounds good.'" ---Jay Leno ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Kitchen Time Saver - Cook Two Casseroles When making a casserole, double the ingredients and make two.

After I returned home, I wrote him a short letter every couple of weeks, enclosing a $5 check in each one. A couple of months into this, he called me one evening just to tell me how much enjoyed the letters, regardless of the money. I had never written regularly before. Eventually I sent off a letter that contained the last $5, completing my repayment of the loan. The next week I found an envelope in my mailbox. It was from my brother. Inside was a check for another $50. ------ Have you ever sent a check or PayPal to show that you like my letters? __________________________________________________
