___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Georgia Zowacki, 55, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania Birthday Girl starts slashing over no cake, gift, card
A Pennsylvania woman who turned 55 Wednesday assaulted a male acquaintance with a box cutter because she had not received a present, card, or cake to mark the occasion, according to court papers. Cops say that Georgia Zowacki was celebrating her May 15 birthday when matters turned stabby at her Pittsburgh-area residence. As reported in a probable cause affidavit, David Rae, with whom Zowacki has lived for four months, told police that Zowacki consumed a large amount of vodka throughout the day. Rae, 59, added that Zowacki eventually became extremely upset and violent because nobody bought her a birthday present, birthday card or birthday cake. Incensed, Zowacki allegedly grabbed a box cutter knife and held it near Rae's throat threatening to kill him. Rae told police that he shoved Zowacki away, but that she came back at him waving the box cutter. Rae, the affidavit notes, suffered several cuts on his left arm during the altercation. Rae told police that Zowacki then trashed his room, thowing his TV on the floor, tipping over a nightstand, and breaking his bed. A patrolman responding to a 3 PM call about a physical domestic dispute located Zowacki sitting on a neighbor's porch. Seen above, she was arrested for aggravated assault, a felony, and reckless endangerment, making terroristic threats, and simple assault, all misdemeanors. Zowacki is being held in the Westmoreland County Prison in lieu of $25,000 bail. According to court records, Zowacki's rap sheet includes convictions for disorderly conduct; drunk driving; harassment; assault; making terroristic threats; and public drunkenness.
From: Glenn Re: PayPal Dear Webby, this came in, and I have had no busineess with PayPal. It did not have my email address or my name, just the name of the buyer as John Angel, and my name in Glenn Dix. Any suggestions? I tried the link, and it said the page could not be displayed. Thank you for any help. -------------------------------------------------- From: Subject: Dispute Transaction Date: Thu, 14 Aug 2008 16:44:14 +0300 ....... Dear Glenn That is a typical scam. Hover, don't click over the dispute transaction link. You will see in the status line that it actually goes to some number domain. Luckily somebody had already reported the same stuff to and PayPal did the digital equivalent of nuking that site. That is why you got a "Page not found" instead of a trojan invasion. Just dump it and next time, don't click on anything suspicious! Hover the mouse over links and watch the status line, but don't click! Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Gloria for bringing back this classic: With all the new technology regarding fertility recently, a 65- year-old friend of mine was able to give birth. When she was discharged from the hospital and went home, I went to visit. 'May I see the new baby?' I asked 'Not yet,' She said 'I'll make coffee and we can visit for a while first.' Thirty minutes had passed, and I asked, 'May I see the new baby now?' 'No, not yet,' She said. After another few minutes had elapsed, I asked again, 'May I see the baby now?' 'No, not yet,' replied my friend. Growing very impatient, I asked, 'Well, when can I see the baby?' 'WHEN HE CRIES!' she told me. 'WHEN HE CRIES?' I demanded. 'Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?' 'BECAUSE I FORGOT WHERE I PUT HIM, O.K.?!!'

The detective was interviewing the man whose clothing shop had just been burglarized. "It's bad," said the proprietor, "but it's not as bad as it could have been if he'd robbed me yesterday." "Why is that?" the detective asked. "Because today everything was on sale." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Saving Money on Appliances Always try to save up for large appliance purchases rather than putting them on a credit card. High interest credit cards can result in paying double for the appliances if you don't pay them off aggressively. Also, be sure to check the local want ads for used appliances. thriftyfun.Com ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ "Grandma, how long have you and Grandpa been married?" asked young Nina. "Fifty years," Grandma replied. "That is so wonderful," exclaimed Nina. "And I bet in all that time, you never once thought about divorce, right?" "Right Nina. Divorce, NEVER. Murder, lots of times, but never divorce." ___________________________________________________ A farmer stood leaning on a fence at the edge of his property. He watched as a red sports car came over the top of a hill and followed the road up to the spot where he stood. The driver pulled over to the side of the road and called out to the farmer. "Do you know how I can get to Route 91?" the driver asked. The farmer thought for a few seconds. Then he said, "Nope." "Do you know where the nearest turnpike entrance is?" the driver asked. "Nope," the farmer replied. "How about the town of Hadley. Do you know which direction it is from here?" "Nope." Exasperated, the driver raced his engine. "You don't know very much, do you?" he said. "Nope," the farmer replied. "But I'm not lost." ___________________________________________________

The wealthy wife of a very successful Jewish businessman went to the portrait artist for her first sitting. The portrait, a gift for her husband. She explained to the artist what she wanted: "You should paint me like I am. These little wrinkles, you put them on your canvas. The lines under my eyes, the flab on my arms, the turn in my nose, and the mole on my cheek, they all stay... BUT on my hands you put lots of rings with big diamonds and emeralds and bright jewels. Around my neck you put chains of gold and diamonds. Do you understand?" The artist looked at her in earnest and asked why she should want such detail of real life in her physical appearance, but adorn herself with the phony jewelry. She replied: "I am not well. When I die my husband will re- marry. The new wife, go crazy she should, looking for the jewels." ___________________________________________________
