YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT IN FLA!
UNSETTLING video footage shows a shark prowling in the BACKYARD of one stunned Florida resident’s home.
Dick Frey, 69, shot the frightening footage two week's ago from his home in Bonita Springs. In the video, the nine foot bull shark is spotted swimming close to the docks through the channel just outside his building. Good think it wasn't a gator, bear, or Fla panther!

One of the scandalous love affairs of the last 20 years is ending.
TMZ reported Tuesday that Vili Fualaau filed for legal separation earlier this month from his wife and former sixth-grade teacher, Mary Kay Letourneau. Letourneau was 34 and married with four kids when she and Fualaau, then 13, began having sex in 1996. She became pregnant with his child that year and gave birth to a girl in 1997, according to People.com.

Since 2015, the three major credit rating agencies have downgraded the state of Illinois a total of six times. Moody’s has given it the lowest rating out of every state at Baa2 negative, just two levels above non-investment grade, also known as junk. The last time Moody’s cut Illinois’ credit rating was June 2016, following the state’s failure to reach a budget deal. The state boasts a backlog of unpaid bills worth a record $13 billion. That total will skyrocket to $28 billion by June 2019 without a deal, Moody’s predicted, which would rack up even more interest and penalties than what is already owed. Even if a deal is reached, state debt and taxpayer dues will both likely increase.

This year the U.S. government has deported 398 gang members to this country, compared with 534 in all of 2016, according to Salvadoran government statistics. This sharp increase in the rate of gang deportations — and the prospect of more gang roundups in the United States — has prompted Salvadoran authorities to hold emergency meetings and propose new legislation to monitor suspected criminals who are being sent home.

Well I left out about 1600 and turned down a street and there was a fox in mortal combat with about a 4' rat snake in the middle of the road. I stopped and the fox looked up at me. I gave the nod to continue on and it went back to it and finished off the snake. It grabbed up the dead snake and carried it over to the grass just off the street, dropped the snake and turned to give me a nod of thanks for waiting while it finished the job. I gave a nod back in thanks for the performance. The fox grabbed up the snake and disappeared into the bushes. It prob was actually a mama with hungry mouths waiting back home. I don't really know. Still, it was an interesting encounter, maybe for both of us. Probably not a good day for the snake.

On Sunday, Stephen King tweeted something he probably thought was quite clever. However, just like his last several novels, it wasn't. The backlash was swift and beautifully vicious.

NAILED IT!!!



====
A lonely 70-year-old widow decided that it was time to marry again. She put an ad in the local newspaper that read: “Husband wanted! Must be in my age group, must not beat me, must not run around on me and must still be good in bed. All applicants please apply in person.”

The following day, she heard the doorbell. Much to her dismay, she opened the door to see a gray-haired gentleman sitting in a wheelchair. He had no arms or legs.

“You’re not really asking me to consider you, are you?” the widow asked: “Just look at you — you have no legs!”

The old gent smiled: “Therefore, I cannot run around on you!”

“You don’t have any arms either!” she snorted.

Again, the old man smiled: “Therefore, I can never beat you!”

She raised an eyebrow and asked intently: “Are you still good in bed?”



The old man leaned back, beamed a big smile and said: “I rang the doorbell, didn’t I?”
