Today's Bonehead Award: Woman smashed baby's skull then sent video of injuries to her partner _______________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! _______________________________________________ There is no reciprocity. Men love women, women love children, children love hamsters. --- Alice Thomas Ellis If you ever start to feel too good about yourself, they have this thing called the Internet, and you can find a lot of people there who don't like you. --- Tina Fey _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A woman holding a baby walks into a drug store and asks the clerk if she can use the store's baby scale. "Sorry, ma'am," says the clerk. "Our baby scale is broken. But we can figure the baby's weight if we weigh mother and baby together on the adult scale, and then weigh the mother alone, and subtract the second number from the first." "Oh, that won't work," says the woman. "Why not?" asks the clerk. "Because," she answers, "I'm not the mother - I'm the aunt." ______________________________________________________` Boat for the coming ice age _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kim Frost, 37, Northampton, Britain in jail now Woman smashed baby's skull then sent video of injuries to her partner
Kim Frost, 37, attacked the baby so savagely doctors said the injuries were equivalent to a car accident A woman smashed a baby's skull so badly it was like the injuries from a car accident, then sent videos of it to her partner to get his attention. Kim Frost, 37, has been jailed for four years for the shocking attack. She had sent messages and videos to her partner after the abuse of the six-month-old, after which he called the police. Frost was jailed for four years after admitting Category A child cruelty and neglect at Northampton Crown Court on Friday. His Honour Judge Michael Fowler told Frost: 'I'm satisfied you are guilty of prolonged and serious neglect and that the severe injuries suffered by the victim were non-accidental and were caused at your hand, made worse by your failure to obtain medical help. 'It's clear to me the most serious injury, the principal focus of our proceedings the injury to the child's skull was caused by significant force. 'It's also clear that you showed deliberate disregard for the child's welfare in order to seek and gain attention of the man you were in a relationship with at the time. 'In mitigation, this was clearly a dysfunctional, toxic relationship but I'm satisfied you were fully aware of what you were doing and the fact that you were not behaving rationally and that you've been described in a psychiatric report as having borderline personality disorder does not absolve you.' The court heard Frost, of Northampton, was in a 'toxic relationship' with her partner when she attacked the baby shortly after it was born. After receiving text messages and videos of her abusing the baby, the man called police on February 4 last year. She was jailed at Northampton Crown Court. The baby was rushed to hospital where doctors discovered the infant had suffered multiple skull fractures and swelling of the brain. Despite the abuse, the baby has made a remarkable recovery and is now being cared for by a foster family. Detective Constable Kirstie Brooks, of Northamptonshire Police's child protection team, said: 'This has been an extremely difficult case. 'The evidence has been particularly harrowing, depicting such severe injuries inflicted on a very young, vulnerable person at the hands of an adult. 'The child is now 23 months old and, thankfully, appears to have made a full recovery, but such was the severity of the injuries, the outcome could have been very different. 'I am pleased the child was removed from what was a highly dangerous situation, was safeguarded and since then, has not shown signs of long-term harm.
DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Rae Re:PowerPoint update problem Dear Webby; How I relate to the frustration Mike is experiencing with the Power Point up-date! Everytime I boot up, a notice comes on that the update is available. When I click to run it, I'm told it was unable to be installed. When I shut down, it says an update is being installed and the computer will turn off when complete. This has been going on for days. I do not have Microsoft Office on my computer. Any suggestions? Thanks so much for all you do and give. Also, thank your dad for all the wonderful pictures of his cacti flowers. Rae Dear Rae Just a typical Microsoft SNAFU. Sounds like you got PPT 2003 You will have to UN-install that. Then try to get PPT 2007 from Microsoft and install that. Or get Open Office. It is free, and better than Microsoft Office. It has a PowerPoint Viewer / Editor included. Have FUN! DearWebby

A man decides to take the opportunity, while his wife is away, to paint the toilet seat. The wife comes home sooner than expected, sits, and gets the seat stuck to her rear. She is distraught about this and asks her husband to drive her to the doctor. She puts on a large overcoat and they go. When they get to the doctor's, the man lifts his wife's coat to show their predicament. The man asks, "Doctor, have you ever seen anything like this before?" "Well yes," the doctor replies, "but not framed."

I was inspecting communications facilities in Alaska. I was a bit nervous when we approached a landing strip in a snow covered area. The pilot descended to about 15 feet, then gunned both engines, climbed, and circled back. While my heart pounded, the passenger beside me seemed calm. "I wonder why he didn't land," I said. "He was checking to see if the landing strip was plowed," the man said. As we made a second approach, I glanced out the window. "It looks plowed to me," I commented. "No," my seatmate said. "It hasn't been cleared for some time." "How can you tell?" "Because," the man informed me, "I'm the guy who drives the plow, and I got the key right here, and I was in Hawaii for the last two weeks." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Protecting Your Remote Control If you have kids you can prevent gooey and dirty hands from gumming up your remote control by placing it in a ziplock bag.

On his way home, he stopped at the supermarket and ordered four catfish. He told the fish salesman, "Pick out the four largest ones and throw them at me, will you?" "Ok. But, why do you want me to throw them at you?" "Because I want to tell my wife that I caught them." ___________________________________________________ On a tour of Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, the guide stopped and addressed the crowd. "Do you want to see what a real cave looks like?" he asked. Of course, everyone said yes. Without another word, he shut off all the lights. ___________________________________________________

>From Lisa Coming out of the supermarket the other day, I saw a scary sight. As a woman loaded groceries into her trunk, her shopping cart began to roll away. The scary part? It was heading straight for my car. She ran after it, but was too late...the cart slammed into my driver's side door. "How bad's the damage?" I called out, running toward her. "Bad," she said, gathering her groceries. "I broke at least a dozen eggs." ___________________________________________________
