___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Laurence Vonderdell, 50, Bournemouth, Dorset, Britain Man jailed for carrying out bank robbery armed with a banana
A man who told Barclays staff 'this is a stick up, give me the cash' while pointing a banana at them has been given a 14-month prison sentence. Laurence Vonderdell, 50, convinced staff that the banana was a gun so they handed over 1,100 in 20 bank notes. He raided the bank in Bournemouth, Dorset, leaving staff terrified. He then approached two police officers telling them that he had just carried out a bank forbbery but they did not believe him and he was sent on his way. Vonderdell then walked another two miles to a police station where he was arrested for robbery. He used the banana to hold up staff at the branch of Barclays A court heard that he carried out the robbery because he wanted to be arrested so he would have a roof over his head after being evicted. He went to a branch of Nationwide with his banana but walked out because there were too many people in the bank so went to Barclays instead. Vonderdell was witnessed pacing up and down outside the bank with the Sainsbury's carrier bag over the banana. He went inside, pointed the banana at Wendy Marsh and told her 'this is a stick up'. Jailing him Judge Robert Pawson said: 'He's gone into a bank with a banana in a plastic bag. It sounds laughable but the cashier didn't know that. 'What would have happened if an armed response unit had been called?' Detective Constable Andy Hale said: 'Even though the defendant handed himself in shortly after this incident and the cash was recovered, this must still have been a very distressing incident for the cashier involved.'
DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Frieda Re: Programs on new computer Dear Webby Before nuking W10 with a W7 CD, what do I do with all the programs the new machine came with? Frieda Dear Frieda Probably none of those programs you would choose to have on your machine anyway. Don't worry about them. The coputer makers get paid for putting a 3 month version of, for example, Norton, onto the machine. That means, you have to waste time getting rid of it. The same with all kinds of other stuff, that might be cutesy, but that you will never pay for having it on the machine. In time, you will accumulate all kinds of free or trial ware programs, so don't worry about the stuff they get paid for to pollute your machine with. Put MalwareBytes on it, CrapCleaner, Spybot-Search&Destroy, and OfficeLibre or Open Office, Thunderbird or Eudora. Unlike W10, W7 does not clash and sabotage Eudora. You are free to choose your favorite email program. You also need a graphics program. If you want full power and able to design 32 foot wide billboards, get GIMP. It is free, but unless you are familiar with graphics, might be a bit overwhelming. However, there are plenty of free graphics programs out there. Get any of them and get familiar with it. Even Microsoft PAINT has been improved drastically and is now good enough for basic office use. Just load up what you actually NEED. More stuff will come along soon enough. Have FUN! DearWebby

Mr. Allen, a high-powered executive trying to impress a client in his office, flipped on his intercom switch and barked to his secretary, "Miss Hunter, get my broker!" The client was impressed until he heard the secretary's clear voice saying, "Yes, sir, stock or pawn?" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Tablecloths for Fabric If you sew, a great way to find cheap fabric is to look at garage sales for tablecloths.

A look back at 1919 in photos.
___________________________________________________ Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards. One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, "Now don't get mad at me..... I know we've been friends for a long time..... but I just can't think of your name! I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is." Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said, "How soon do you need to know? -------------- If she had subscribed with her name or nickname, instead of leaving it blank like most AOLers, I would have greeted her every morning with her name. ___________________________________________________ One of our patients wasn't taking any chances. Prior to her operation, she taped notes to her body for the surgeon... "Take your time," "Don't cut yourself," "No need to rush," "Wash your hands..." After surgery, as I helped the patient back into her bed, we discovered a new note taped to her, this one from the doctor, "Has anyone seen my wristwatch?" ___________________________________________________

I spent 20 minutes explaining life insurance options to one of our employees. After reviewing the different plans and monthly deductions, he decided to max out, choosing $100,000 worth of life insurance. But he had one last question. "Now," he said, "what do I have to do to collect the money?" ___________________________________________________
