How did you know what time it was? Did you look at your watch?" "No," the witness said. "I looked at the sundial in the garden." "That's absurd," screamed the lawyer. "How could you tell time by a sundial at 11:32 at night?" "I had a flashlight," the witness said. ________________________________________________` Thanks to Betty for this picture: ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ Reported by Lee An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Marissa Mowry, 28, Tampa, Florida Ex-nanny who sexually abused 11-year-old, got pregnant, gets 20 years The boy was 11 when the sexual abuse started. The abuser was his family's 22-year-old live-in nanny. She sexually assaulted him at least 15 times over several months, according to prosecutors. In the fall of 2014, she gave birth to his child. Three years passed before the boy had the courage to tell his mother what happened. On Wednesday, the now 17-year-old father sat in a courtroom to watch Marissa Mowry sentenced to 20 years in prison for what she did to him. She must also complete 10 years of sex offender probation upon her release from prison. There was no high drama as Mowry, now 28, learned her punishment. Standing handcuffed in a red jail uniform, she listened impassively as Hillsborough Circuit Judge Laura Ward designated her a sexual predator. That means when Mowry is freed she will spend the rest of her life adhering to a series of strict conditions. No witnesses testified. But Assistant Public Defender Antina Mobley made a brief mention of Mowry's past. She spoke of an abusive childhood and parents who were absent from Mowry's life. The attorney said Mowry was homeless for a time. She earned her high school diploma while in jail. After the hearing, the mother of the boy Mowry assaulted said a troubled past was no excuse for the damage she caused, for changing the course of his entire life. We're talking about a child that was 11, Nadean Campbell said. Not even a teenager. Eleven. The Tampa Bay Times is not naming the 17-year-old because he is a victim of sexual abuse. The 17-year-old takes his son to school in the morning, and goes to school himself. He plays with him in their backyard when he gets home. Being a father has put limits on what he can do in his teenage life, Campbell said. He can't hang out with friends after school because he has to care for his son. Dating is out, Campbell said, because who wants to date a 17-year-old who has a 5-year-old? It has not ruined his life, but it's changed his life," the mother said. But he has turned into one of the most amazing dads you'll ever meet.
DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Carolyn Re: How much RAM Dear Webby, I am "older" and this laptop is my first computer. My only lessons have been from reading your newsletter and I thank you so much. I feel I should be paying you for being my "tutor." Someone told me I need more Ram in my laptop. I have 256 right now. Do you think I do and if so how do I go about getting more? I appreciate all your help. Carolyn Dear Carolyn If you really feel I should get a token help for my help, than hit the PayPal button and donate a dollar, or two, if you can afford it! A lightweight system today can get by with 4GB of RAM. 8GB should be plenty for current and near-term future applications, 16GB gives you comfortable space for the future, and anything over 16GB is likely overkill unless you specifically know you need it (such as for video editing or audio post-production). I got 4 GB in my W7 machine and working hard 18 hours a day. With a W10 you would of course need more. Slowing everything down takes more RAM. Have FUN! DearWebby

A mother was anxiously awaiting her daughter's plane. She had just come back from a far away land trying to find adventure. As the daughter was exiting the plane, the mother noticed a man directly behind her daughter dressed in feathers with exotic markings all over his body and carrying a shrunken head. The daughter introduced this man as her new husband. The mother gasped in disbelief and disappointment and screamed, "Oy vey! I said for you to marry a Rich Doctor! A Rich Doctor!"

There was an elderly southern widow who lived in a large mansion. She was feeling generous when it came towards Christmas, so she called up the local military base, and asked to speak with the lieutenant. "Please send up four nice young men to eat dinner here on Christmas, but please, don't send any Jews. Please, no Jews." The lieutenant replied, "No problem ma'am, and I am sure I speak for the army when I say we all appreciate your kindness." Well, Christmas rolled around, and the widow went to answer the door when it rang. She was surprised to see four of the blackest boys that anyone had ever seen, especially in the South. "But... But... There must be some mistake," she stammered. One of them replied, "No ma'am, lieutenant Morris Goldstein doesn't make mistakes." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from font color="#009990"> Storing Tea Always store loose tea in a container with a tight fitting lid to preserve the quality of the herbs. Even if your tea bags are individually wrapped, it's good to store them in a sealed container as well. Try to avoid plastic containers for tea. You are gambling on whether or not it will acquire a weird taste. Dark glass, ceramic or metal are best for tea. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ A patient, while recovering in the hospital from a heart attack, met this over-zealous evangelist. After listening politely for a over a half hour on how thankful he should be to have been spared, and how he should repent at once, he asked if all of his sins had flashed before his eyes during the heart attack. The patient responded, "Don't be ridiculous, the attack lasted only 6 hours." ___________________________________________________ A well worn dollar bill and a similarly distressed twenty arrived at the bureau of Engraving and Printing to be retired. As they moved along the conveyor belt to the shredder they struck up a conversation. The twenty reminisced about its travels all over the country. "I've had a pretty good life." the twenty proclaimed. "I've been to Las Vegas and Atlantic City, the finest restaurants in New York, performances on Broadway, and even a cruise from Miami." "Wow!" said the single, "you really have gotten around." "So tell me", says the twenty, "where have you been throughout your lifetime?" "Oh, I've been to the Methodist Church, the Baptist Church, the Presbyterian Church, the Lutheran Church, the Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church, Assembly of God Church, the Brethren Church, the United Church of Christ, ...." The twenty says, "What's a church?" ___________________________________________________ An aged farmer and his wife were leaning against the edge of their pig-pen when the old woman wistfully recalled that the next week would mark their golden wedding anniversary. "Let's have a party, Homer," she suggested. "Let's kill a pig." The farmer scratched his grizzled head. "Gee, Ethel," he finally answered, "I don't see why the pig should take the blame for something that happened fifty years ago." __________________________________________________
