Taking an Aspirin on a daily basis may not be good for you.

A recent study found by the British scientists shows that taking a daily dose of 100mg of aspirin if you have had no symptoms of artery disease could be more harm than good.

This is a good read, go check it out.
Make the decision on your own or at the least after you talk with your Doctor.

What are pennies really worth?

Well let's find out.
If I gave you a penny today then doubled that tomorrow and each day after for a month, at the end of the month how much would you have?

See it goes like this,
day 1 you get 1 penny
day 2 you have 2 pennies
day 3 you'll have 4 pennies
day 4 you'll have 8 pennies
day 5 you'll have 16 pennies and so on.............

You understand how it works now?
So get your calculators out and get to figuring.

You'll be amazed at how much that 1 penny was worth.

Happy Birthday Christopher


Well since it is 2:47 in the am and that makes it August 30th by my watch I get to wish my favorite son-in-law a very Happy Birthday.
I remember when I first told him he was my favorite son-in-law, it took him only a few minutes to realize he was my only son-in-law. But all jokes aside, I do love him. He has been by my daughter's side for over 10yrs. now and they have 3 beautiful kids. Although I don't get to see all of them as often as I'd like, hopefully they will get moved down here closer to us soon.

I hope your day is filled with much love and joy Chris.
Love ya,
Mom and Larry

Why strong passwords are so important

If you're like me and you spend a lot of your time on the computer and you go to many sites and have many different passwords, this is important to you.
I always knew that you needed your passwords to be unique, but never realized they needed to be longer than 8 characters long if possible and have both upper and lower case letters and numbers and even symbols in them. The more you have of these the better off you are of being protected. There are progra
ms out there that you can buy that will generate a strong password for you. But I don't want to spend anymore money than I have to.
So I guess I will spend the next few hours going back in and changing out all my passwords to longer than 8 characters so I will be protected.
I am adding a link so you can read more on this subject. It came from a "Cloudeight"
which you can sign up to and get very useful info right in your mailbox.


I hope this helps to keep you and your info more safe.
I know with paying all my bills online I want to make sure I am safe.

Water in ziplock bag to keep flies away!

I have to admit this sounds funny.

I read this today on a group I belong to. But after some searching online I found that many people swear by this method. Of course there are those who say it doesn't work either. SO I guess the only way you will know for sure is to try it for yourself.

From what I understand you are to fill a ziplock bag about 1/2 full with water and add 3-4 very shiny pennies. Then hang it over your door ways that you have problems with flies or other insects with and you will see that they will not come in where you have hung these bags. You must keep the bag and water clean and clear. Putting it in the sun is even better I guess. It is the prism effect from the water and pennies that the flies don't like. It seems to make them think other bigger insects are around-- so they stay away. At least that's what they say.
People have even hung these outside in the corners of their porches to keep them away.
They claim that restaurants use these all the time.

I guess it is something I will have to give a try.

Picture of both babies



Larry said it was only fair that I post a pic of both of the babies since I had monopolized my posts with Mr. Man. So here it is a pic of Mr. Man and Punkin. She keeps him in line and he worries about her when she is out of his sight. He wines to let us know she wants out and wines to tell us to check on her if he thinks she has been out to long. You would think he was the older one the way he carries on. He just has a worrying personality. He does that with us even. If one of us is out of his sight too long he will search the house to find us. If he was in another room when one of us left the house he will pace the house until that one returns.
The poor boy is gonna give himself a nervous breakdown some day.
But we love em both. They are our kids.

My allowance




Here is the pic I promised you of my Bichon with his money. He is ever so careful not to chew it up. He carried this around for a good few minutes before we could get it away from him.

I want my fortune cookie please.


This is a pic of my Bichon. He really likes to tell you when he wants his treats. He especially likes fortune cookies. He will carry these around and not break these until you tell him he can have it then he will reluctantly let you have it so you can open it for him.
He loves carrying things around in his mouth. I have a pic of him carrying around a dollar bill I will have to find and post for ya to see.

Law of the Garbage Truck

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of the parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly. So I asked, "Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the Hospital!" This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, "The Law of the Garbage Truck."

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets. The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.

Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so... Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don't.

Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

Have a blessed, garbage-free day!

Jokes You Can Tell In Church

Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, "Why is the bride dressed in white?" The mother replied, "Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life." The child thought about this for a moment then said, "So why is the groom wearing black?"
~~~~~~~~ ~~~~

A little girl, dressed in her Sunday best, was running as fast as she could, trying not to be late for Bible class. As she ran she prayed, "Dear Lord, please don't let me be late! Dear Lord, please don't let me be late!" While she was running and praying, she tripped on a curb and fell, getting her clothes dirty and tearing her dress. She got up, brushed herself off, and started running again! As she ran she once again began to pray, "Dear Lord, please don't let me be late...But please don't shove me either!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Three boys are in the school yard bragging about their fathers. The first boy says, "My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a poem, they give him $50." The second boy says, "That's nothing. My Dad scribbles a few words on piece of paper, he calls it a song, and they give him $100." The third boy says, "I got you both beat. My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a sermon, and it takes eight people to collect all the money!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~

An elderly woman died last month. Having never married, she requested no male pallbearers. In her handwritten instructions for her memorial service, she wrote, "They wouldn't take me out while I was alive, I don't want them to take me out when I'm dead."

~~~~~~~~~~~~
A police recruit was asked during the exam, "What would you do if you had to arrest your own mother?" He answered, "Call for backup.."

~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to "Honor thy father and thy mother," she asked, "Is there a
commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?"
Without missing a beat, one little boy answered, "Thou shall not kill."

~~~~~~~~~~~~

At Sunday School they were teaching how God created everything, including human beings. Little Johnny seemed especially intent when they told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam's ribs. Later in the week his mother noticed him lying down as though he were ill, and she said, "Johnny, what is the matter?" Little Johnny responded, "I have pain in my side. I think I'm going to have a wife."

Aspirin information you can't get enough times.

1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.
the reason: aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life". Therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the aspirin would be strongest in your system.

2. FYI, aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest - years. (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar) Please read on:

3. WHY ASPIRIN BY YOUR BED save lives ....
It is important to always have ASPIRIN in the home!!! Why have Aspirin by your bedside?

ABOUT HEART ATTACKS
There are other symptoms of a heart attack besides the pain on the left arm.
One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating, however these symptoms may also occur less frequently.

NOTE : There may be no pain in the chest during a heart attack.
The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep, did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.

If that happens, IMMEDIATELY DISSOLVE TWO ASPIRINS IN YOUR MOUTH swallow them with a bit of water.
Afterwards, phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by and state "HEART ATTACK!!!" and that you have taken 2 ASPIRINS
Take a seat on a chair or sofa and wait for their arrival and
...DO NOT LIE DOWN !!!

Soap for feet/leg cramps

Have you ever heard of a bar of soap helping take care of your feet and leg cramps?
Well-- now you have!
I got this from a group I am on and many claim it works for them.

So this is what they do and how it works.
One gal has lupus and she has plenty of leg pain. After going to the Dr. for advice on controlling the pain the Dr. told her to get a bar of soap (any type) then put it in a sock and tie it tight so it won't come out. Then put that in the foot of your bed and leave it there. Apparently while you sleep it helps to control the pain.
The Dr. said there is something that is put in the soap to stop the cramping.

There were replies from many who do this and have had great results. One lady said she had 2 bars of soap in her bed (one for each side).
So if you have leg pains, why not give it a try.
Home remedies have long been the best answers to many things for years before medicine came about.

Angus Burger

We don't splurge often but this last time when we went grocery shopping Larry spotted some Angus Burger. I was reluctant to get it as it was $7.99 for a 2lb box of 6 patties. But I gave in.
He fixed up a couple for supper last night on George. They cooked up nicely, kept their shape and didn't cook up smaller but they did seem to have quite a bit of grease.
These ones he picked out had cheese and bacon bits already in them.
I have to say they did taste pretty good. But in my opinion not worth the price. But then again I am a cheapskate.

I prefer to mix a 3 part meat mixture for my hamburgers. I use hamb., sausage and ground turkey, then add any spices I see in my kitchen. If I have a hankering I will add a mixture of BBQ sauce, soy sauce, mustard, ketchup and brown sugar to the mix for an added flavor. These freeze well also.
Then make it into a cheeseburger after cooked.
This is what I made when Mar and Bernie were here and Bernie went back for seconds. So I am guessing it must of been palatable.

Flag this message PLEASE PLEASE......CHECK YOUR RECEIPTS ! ! !

This was sent to me so I wanted to pass it on to everyone else.

SEE ALERT BELOW:


It happened to me at Wal-Mart (Supercenter Store #1279, 10411 N Freeway 45, Houston , TX 77037 ) a month ago. I bought a bunch of stuff, over $150, & I glanced at my receipt as the cashier was handing me the bags. I saw a cash-back of $40. I told her I didn't request a cash back & to delete it. She said I'd have to take the $40 because she couldn't delete it. I told her to call a supervisor.

Supervisor came & said I'd have to take it. I said NO! Taking the $40 would be a cash advance against my Discover & I wasn't paying interest on a cash advance!!!!! If they couldn't delete it then they would have to delete the whole order.. So the supervisor had the cashier delete the whole order & re-scan everything! The second time I looked at the electronic pad before I signed & a cash-back of $20 popped up. At that point I told the cashier & she deleted it. The total came out right. The cashier agreed that the electronic pad must be defective. Obviously the cashier knew the electronic pad was defective because she NEVER offered me the $40 at the beginning. Can you imagine how many people went through before me & at the end of her shift how much money she pocketed?

Just to alert everyone. My co worker went to Milford DE Walmart last week. She had her items rung up by the cashier. The cashier hurried her along and didn't give her a receipt. She asked the cashier for a receipt and the cashier was annoyed and gave it to her. My co worker didn't look at her receipt until later that night. The receipt showed that she asked for $20 cash back. SHE DID NOT ASK FOR CASH BACK. My co worker called Walmart who investigated but could not see the cashier pocket the money. She then called her niece who works for the bank and her niece told her this. There is a scam going on. The cashier will ask for cash back and hand it to her friend who is the next person in line. Please, Please, please check your receipts right away when using debit cards. The store has the cashier under investigation now. We can only pray that she is caught very soon.

I am adding to this. My husband and I were in WalMart North Salisbury and paying with credit card when my husband went to sign the credit card signer he just happen to notice there was a $20 cash back added. He told the cashier that he did not ask nor want cash back and she said this machine has been messing up and she canceled it. We really didn't think anything of it until we read this email.

Please be aware.

Put the coffee pot on-Company's coming

How do you spell E X C I T E D.
M E--yup.. that's the way I spell it.
I don't think I've been that way in quite awhile. See we have had a couple ladies, Bernie and Mar visiting for the past couple days. And what a blessing it has been having them here. We so enjoyed talking and spending time with them. They have been living a different type of lifestyle than you and I. They live in a small RV and travel the US. "Now that is the freedom of the open road." They go where they want and work along the way to finance their day to day living. They will be leaving tomorrow and I am going to hate seeing our visit come to an end.
I hope someday we will be doing the same thing-living on the road, seeing the world along the way.

Keeping Busy

What to do, what to do. We have been getting all our extra accumulated what-not's around for our park wide yard sale this weekend. We have decided to get rid of all the things we REALLY don't need. Things that are just taking up room and doing nothing. See I am sort of a pack rat and we really need to do a cleaning of the house. And Larry is cleaning out his shed. Anything and everything that we don't use at least on a weekly basis is gonna go. We are going to go back to the basic essentials. No more than what 2 people would need to live on. Believe me when I say I have enough for a family of 5-6 to live on. I have way too much in the way of pots and pans, dishes, bedding, knick knacks and other things to make up a household. My brother is even going to bring his moving trailer over so we can take the sides off it and use it to put some of our stuff out on it.
So this is going to be fun this weekend.

The Holy Alphabet

Whoever came up with this one much have had some Divine guidance.

Although things are not perfect
Because of trial or pain
Continue in thanksgiving
Do not begin to blame
Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow
God is forever able
Hold on to what you know
Imagine life without His life
Joy would cease to be
Keep thanking Him for all the things
Love imparts to thee
Move out of "Camp Complaining"
No weapon that is known
On earth can yield the power
Praise can do alone
Quit looking at the future
Redeem the time at hand
Start everyday with worship
To "thank" is a command
Until we see Him coming
Victorious in the sky
We'll run the race with gratitude
Xalting God most high
Yes, there'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but....
Zion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!

"I AM Too blessed to be stressed!" The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor.

The one who kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything. Love and peace be with you forever, Amen.

The greatness of Caring and how it changes your thinking

It will take just 37 seconds to read this and change your thinking.

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.


One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.


His bed was next to the room's only window.


The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.


The men talked for hours on end.


They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..


Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.


The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.


Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.


As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.


One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.


Although the other man could not hear the band - he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.


Days, weeks and months passed.


One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.


She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away


As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.

He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.


It faced a blank wall.


The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.


The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.


She said, 'Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.'


Epilogue:

There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.


Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.

If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy.

'Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present.'

The origin of this letter is unknown.

Do not keep this letter.


I pray you will forward it to all your friends to whom you wish God's blessings.

Recipe to make your own Pure Life Splash de Kiwi-Fresa

This is so simple to make and tastes so delish. Even Larry liked it and he is SO picky. He says he may even switch over to this from pop since he likes it so much. At least I will be able to get more water down him this way.

*Essentials: *
