Today's Bonehead Award: Woman faces charges in drunken fatal crash involving fuel truck ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand. --- Kurt Vonnegut (1922 - 2007) The petty economies of the rich are just as amazing as the silly extravagances of the poor. --- William Feather _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ My next-door neighbor and I frequently borrow things from each other. Not long ago, when I requested his ladder, he told me he had lent it to his son. Recalling a saying my grandmother used to repeat, I recited, "You should never lend anything to your kids, because you will never get it back." With that, my neighbor said, "Well, it's not even my ladder. It's my dad's." ______________________________________________________` _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kritzia Lopez, 28, Miami-Dade County, Florida Woman faces charges in drunken fatal crash involving fuel truck Kritzia Lopez spent her first night at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and it is likely that Rene Hernandez and Natalia Landin were on her mind. They are the two people who were killed while she was driving drunk and high, according to Florida Highway Patrol. FHP troopers said Lopez, 28, was under the influence of alcohol and marijuana Sept. 21 when she drove the wrong way on Florida's Turnpike. Lopez, 28, was arrested Wednesday on two counts of DUI manslaughter, two counts of vehicular homicide, one count of DUI with serious bodily injuries and four counts of DUI with property damage. Investigators said Lopez first crashed into a Tropic Oil Co. truck near Southwest 88th Street. The truck hit a Chevrolet Impala and a Ford. Hernandez, Landin and Mirta Estupinan were in the Impala. The crash left Hernandez, 68, and Landin, 67, dead. Estupinan, 67, was among the eight people injured. The leaking truck prompted authorities to shut down a portion of the turnpike for several hours. Lopez turned herself in Wednesday night at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and was booked into jail.
From: Ronnie Re: Alternative file compression utility Dear DearWebby For archiving I use 7-Zip. It's open source and so, totally free. It does zip and rar (and most others). Check it out at . Ronnie Dear Ronnie Yes, 7-Zip works fine too, even though it does not integrate into the file explorer and disappear into the background quite as smoothly as Winzip does. If I didn't have WinZip, I would definitely use 7-Zip. Have FUN! DearWebby

A hospital posted a notice in the nurses' mess saying: "Remember, the first five minutes of a human being's life are the most dangerous." Underneath, a nurse had written: "The last five are pretty risky, too."

The boss at the pub went up to the bartender and asked, "Have you been fooling around with the waitress?!" "Oh no, sir, I sure haven't," replied the bartender. The boss replied, "Good, then YOU fire her!" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Take a Break From Your Computer Avoid sitting in front of your computer for more than 30 minutes at a time. If you find you lose track of time, set a timer to go off in 30 minutes. Then get up, stretch, and walk around a bit before sitting back down. It also helps ease eye strain if you periodically look at distant objects. ____________________________________________________
The Shirk Report
___________________________________________________ Boudreaux and Pierre decided to go to the casino. Boudreaux told Pierre as they entered, "All right Pierre, we'll meet here in an hour, OK?" "OK, man," said Pierre. Well, when they were done, Boudreaux was broke, but Pierre had a bucket full of quarters. "Man, were you got all 'em quarters?" asked Boudreaux. Pierre, leaning close, whispered, "Man, I don't wann say this too loud, but you see that game over there, every time I put in a dollar, it give me four quarters!"' ___________________________________________________ I was browsing in a souvenir shop when the man next to me struck up a conversation. Just as he was telling me that his wife was getting carried away with her shopping, a brief power shortage caused the lights to flicker overhead. "Ah," he sighed, "that must be her checking out now." ___________________________________________________

Joan, the town gossip and supervisor of the town's morals, recently accused George, a local man, of being an alcoholic because she saw his pickup truck parked outside the town's only bar. George stared at her for a moment, and said nothing. Later that evening, after he finished fixing the plumbing in the bar, he and his apprentices parked their pickup trucks in front of her house and left them there all night. ___________________________________________________
