Good Morning, ,
Today is Sunday, February 25


Callisburg Independent School District in Texas has a serious message
for any potential shooters, and it appears to be working.

The idea of armed educators is nothing new. CNN reported that about
four years ago, the  guardian  program was implemented. The program
allowed a small force of volunteer school staff to carry concealed
firearms on school grounds.

The educators complete active shooter scenario training once a year
and also practice at gun ranges.

Callisburg High School is not alone. KSAT reported that the Texas
Association of School Boards said it was aware of 172 districts that
allow staff to carry firearms.

While the debate about whether educators should be armed rages on,
these schools have already taken the necessary steps to protect
children years ago. Just the signs are new.

Other schools across the nation also have armed educators.

Good for them!

Have FUN!

Forty-five years of misery is enough." "Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams. "We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the old man says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her," and he hangs up. Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone, "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this." She calls her father immediately and screams at the old man, "You are NOT getting divorced! Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up. The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "They're coming for Passover and paying their own airfares." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Sandie for this story: Two Swedes from Wisconsin are sittin' in a boat on Dead Lake , fishing and suckin' down beer, when all of a sudden Sven says, "I tink I'm going to divorce my wife.

_____________________________________________________ I figured that at age seven it was inevitable for my son to begin having doubts about Santa Claus. Sure enough, one day he said, "Mom, I know something about Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy." Taking a deep breath, I asked him, "What is that?" He replied, "They're all nocturnal." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kendrick Hart, Reidsville, North Carolina Man 'holding a large stick' robs NC bank, is arrested 5 minutes later A man was arrested in Reidsville after allegedly robbing a bank Tuesday afternoon, according to a news release from Reidsville police. Kendrick Hart, 29, of Reidsville, is charged with armed robbery. The robbery happened at the American Partners Federal Credit Union, located at 618 N. Scales St., around 4 p.m. The suspect walked into the bank holding a large stick, yelled, 'This is a robbery,' then jumped over the counter and proceeded to steal an unknown amount of money, Reidsville police said in the release. About five minutes after the robbery, Hart was stopped in the parking lot of Rob and Ray's Grocery by a sheriff's deputy, the release said. Hart was taken into custody after surveillance footage from the credit union connected him to the robbery. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Kathy Re: mail washer Dear Webby, What is mail washer? One of the comments made inthis column refered to it. Signed - The ignorantly uninformed.... aka Kathy Dear Kathy If you look at the right side menu, you see a button for MailWasher. It is the best and most effective spam control. That is why I give it space there, and have for about 20 years. It is a program to eliminate spam. As you saw in the tech support pits column, it's tough enough to work even for big corporations that get tons of mail. If you get enough spam, so that it is a nuisance, get the free trial and try it out! MailWasher washes your mail on the server, and does not waste your time and your allotment with downloading crap. It works great as is, but the real power is in the easy to make filters. It gets to be a real game outsmarting the spammers. Have FUN! DearWebby

The family had finally gotten their first dishwasher. The father liked to inspect every new thing that cam into the house, so he stayed in the kitchen and watched the display count down all forty-four minutes of the dishwashing cycle. Suddenly he called out for his wife, shouting, "It's useless, the dishwasher is useless!" The wife was amazed that the newest appliance could be broken after only one use, but he insisted that because they had a water softener, the dishwasher was useless. She decided to look for herself, and there it was, on the inside door, next to the detergent dispenser: USE LESS WITH SOFT WATER

When Sam returned to the house one evening, his wife Sarah announced that the new cleaning woman they had hired had stolen two towels. "Yeah," said Sam very disinterested, and reclining on the sofa, "that wasn't very nice of her to do." "It certainly wasn't," Sarah said. "And they were the best towels we had... the fluffy ones we got from the Hilton Hotel while we were on vacation." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Salt Stains on Leather If you get salt stains on your leather shoes or boots in the wintertime, mix one tablespoon of white vinegar in one cup of water.

By Becki in Indiana Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ An explorer was leading an entourage through the Amazon jungle when they heard the sounds of drums. At the next village, the leader stopped a native and asked him to explain their meaning. "Bad, real bad when drums stop!" he said before running off. The drum beating continued to pulsate. The safari leader asked another native about it. "Bad, real bad when drums stop!" he said. A few minutes later the drums did stop, and all the expedition members became panicked. The leader grabbed another villager and demanded to know the situation. "Bad, real bad that drums stop," he blurted. "Now comes violin solo!"
