Shared by Cyndee Johnson, one of my good Internet Friends...

Date: 9/14/2009
From: CLJ5775
To: MsBeeJay + 19 others

Comment by Cyndee Johnson:
Hmmmmmmmmmmm never thought about either one of these tips!




This gives us something to think about with all our new WORLD OF electronic technology.

GPS
A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had their car broken into while they were at a football game.

Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.

When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen.

The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house.

The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.

Something to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your home address in it. Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were = stolen.


MOBILE PHONES
I never thought of this.......

This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her mobile phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet... Etc...was stolen.

20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says 'I received your text asking about our Pin number and I've replied a little while ago.'

When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text 'hubby' in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.

Moral of the lesson:
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.

Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc....

And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.

Also, when you're being text by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places to meet 'family and friends' who text you.

*PLEASE PASS THIS ON
* I never thought about the above!

As of now, I no longer have 'home' listed on my cell phone.

We should have a decision sometime tomorrow on

Consider [B][B][COLOR=#0000ff]http://www.truthorfiction.com/[/COLOR][/B][/B] as a better source!


Snopes--Eye Opener….a Phony!!

For the past few years [COLOR=#0000ff]www.snopes.com[/COLOR] has positioned itself, or others have labeled it, as the 'tell-all final word' on any comment, claim and email.
But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind [COLOR=#004182][COLOR=#004182]snopes.com[/COLOR][/COLOR].

Only recently did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it - kinda makes you wonder what they were hiding. Well, finally we know. It is run by a husband
and wife team - that's right, n o big office of investigators and researchers, no team of lawyers. It's just a mom-and-pop operation that began as
a hobby.

David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California started the website about 13 years ago - and they have no formal background
or experience in investigative research. After a few years it gained popularity with many believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but over the past
couple of years people started asking questions who was behind it and did they have a selfish motivation?

The reason for the questions - or skepticisms - is a result of [COLOR=#004182][COLOR=#004182]snopes.com[/COLOR][/COLOR] claiming to have the bottom line facts to certain questions or issue when
in fact they have been pr oven wrong. Also, there were criticisms the Mikkelsons were not really investigating and getting to the 'true' bottom of
various issues.

A few months ago, when my State Farm agent Bud Gregg in Mandeville hoisted a political sign referencing Barack Obama and made a big splash
across the internet, 'supposedly' the Mikkelson's claim to have researched this issue before posting their findings on [COLOR=#004182][COLOR=#004182]snopes.com[/COLOR][/COLOR]. In their
statement they claimed the corporate office of State Farm pressured Gregg into taking down the sign, when in fact nothing of the sort
'ever' took place.

I personally contacted David Mikkelson (and he replied back to me) thinking he would want to get to the bottom of this and I gave him Bud Gregg's
contact phone numbers – and Bud was going to give him phone numbers to the big exec's at State Farm in Illinois who would have been willing to
speak with him about it. He never called Bud.

In fact, I learned from Bud Gregg no one from [COLOR=#004182][COLOR=#004182]snopes.com[/COLOR][/COLOR] ever contacted anyone with State Farm. Yet, [COLOR=#004182][COLOR=#004182]snopes.com[/COLOR][/COLOR] issued a statement as the
'final factual word' on the issue as if t hey did all their homework and got to the bottom of things - not!

Then it has been learned the Mikkelson's are very Democrat (party) and extremely liberal. As we all now know from this presidential election,
liberals have a purpose driven agenda to discredit anything that appears to be conservative.

There has been much criticism lately over the internet with people pointing out the Mikkelson's liberalism revealing itself in their website findings.

So, I say this now to everyone who goes to [COLOR=#004182][COLOR=#004182]snopes.com[/COLOR][/COLOR] to get what they think to be the bottom line facts...'proceed with caution.'
Take what it says at face value and nothing more. Use it only to lead you to their references where you can link to and read the sources
for yourself. Remember, you can always Google a subject and do the research yourself. It now seems apparent that's all the Mikkelson's do.
After all, I can personally vouch from my own experience for their 'not' fully looking into things.


[COLOR=#0000ff]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snopes.com[/COLOR]

I have found this to be true also! Many videos of Obama I tried to verify on Snopes and they said they were False......
Then they gave their Liberal slant....!!!

I have suspected some problems with snopes for some time now, but I have only caught them in half-truths. If there is
any subjectivity they do an immediate full left rudder. [COLOR=#0000ff]www.truthorfiction.com[/COLOR] is a far a better source for verification, in
my opinion.

This couple is in the tank for Obama. There are many things they have listed on their site as a hoax and yet you can go
to Youtube yourself and find the video of Obama actually saying these things.

So you see, you cannot and should not... trust Snopes. com ever for anything that isremotely political! I don't even trust
them to tell me if email chains are hoaxes anymore. So goes modern journalism. There are cropping up numerous sites and
blogs that openly challenging Snopes's findings, opinions, and outright claims.

A few conservative speakers on Myspace told me about Snopes a few months ago and I took it upon myself to do a little
research to find out if it was true. Well, I found out for myself that it is true. Anyway.

So you might consider thinking twice before relying on Snopes.com for fact checking and do your friends the
courtesy of tipping them off to Snopes political slant.

Many people still think Snopes. com is neutral and they can be trusted as factual.We need to make sure everyone is aware that...
that is a hoax in itself.

The above was passed along to me by my other half...

9/22/2009 Subject: Two timely things I forgot to mention!
==================================================

Hi BJ Minnich

OK, So I forgot to mention in my last email two things:

1) SuperSurf is on 100% Surfing Bonus Today!
2) Mafioso Marketing 2 has been released!
==> http://trk.startxchange.com/85/semail

What is it? It's an ebook with the formula to make real money online.
I've read it, and it's got me excited!

Jam packed, it's 62 pages long and gets into the details.
It's the real thing!

In fact, when Mafioso Marketing (1) was released, many
people used it's techniques to make a ton of money!

Including Rhys Davies who used it to bring in $100k in 2008!
I'm planning on using the same techniques to build up my business ;-)

9/22/2009 Subject: What's the deal with Activity Points?
==================================================

Hi BJ Minnich

This comes up in the support tickets quite often,
so I just wanted to do a quick reminder:

1) Activity Points are NOT Credits
2) Activity Points increase your Surfing Bonus
3) You get 500 Activity Points for clicking the
links in these emails I send out (towards bottom)

You have a few days to click the links to claim the points,
but it's best to just get them right away.
That way you increase your bonus sooner ;-)

You can earn points by these emails, referring, purchasing,
and posting in the forum..

You also get points for every page you surf!

9/21/2009 Subject: And the Winner of 10000 Hits is...
==================================================

Hi BJ Minnich

We've come to our senses, and after arguing over who's idea was best
we decided to duke it out over a good came of Call of Duty. Unfortunately
Jon plays on an Xbox, I play on PC, and the other guys don't even play so
I just chose the winner instead!

Starting on Wednesday Super Surf will change!!

You'll still get to surf the same great exchanges to receive a 10% surfing bonus.
BUT, surfing the BONUS exchange you'll be Super Bonus Surfing!

This way you can choose to surf the bonus exchange or not. You'll get an additional
bonus for surfing all 5, but we aren't going to require it anymore.

This came after lots of feedback.. New exchanges joining the group is exciting,
but those with less powerful machines have trouble surfing 5.

This will start Wednesday when we announce
the next exchange to join in on Super Surf!

Thank you wordwiz for the great idea!

Hi BJ Minnich

Splash pages are great for capturing people's attention while
surfing. Straight to the point, they get the best results.

But most people don't know how to design one, so that's where
these not 1, but TWELVE free squeeze page templates come in.

All you have to do is download a free report,
and you'll also get the 12 squeeze pages!

==> http://trk.startxchange.com/93/wed

Once you've got them in your hands, you can
us them to promote anything you want ;-)

There is a reason the people getting results
tell you to make a splash page.. they work!

So get going and grab your free 12 templates:

It is from Gary Wilsey, my Ex...Enjoy!

A guy came into a bar one day and said to the barman, "Give me six double vodka."
The barman says, "Wow! you must have had one really bad day."
"Yes, I've just found out my older brother is gay."

The next day the same guy came into the bar and asked for the same drinks.
When the bartender asked what the problem was today the answer came back,
"I've just found out that my younger brother is gay too!"

On the third day the guy came into the bar and ordered another six double vodkas.
The bartender said, "WOW! Doesn't anybody in your family like women?"
"Yeah, my wife..."

NEW WORDS for 2009 --
Essential vocabulary additions for the workplace (and elsewhere)


1. BLAMESTORMING: Sitting around in a group, discussing why a Deadline was missed or a project failed, and who was responsible.


2. SEAGULL MANAGER: A manager, who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on everything, and then leaves.


3. ASSMOSIS: The process by which some people seem to absorb success and advancement by kissing up to the boss rather than working hard.

4. SALMON DAY: The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to get screwed and die in the end.

5. CUBE FARM: An office filled with cubicles


6. PRAIRIE DOGGING: When someone yells or drops something loudly in a cube farm, and people's heads pop up over the walls to see what's going on.

7. MOUSE POTATO: The on-line, wired generation's answer to the couch potato.


8. SITCOMs: Single Income, Two Children, Oppressive Mortgage. What Yuppies turn into when they have children and one of them stops working to stay home with the kids.

__________________________________________________

I'm Glad You're In My Dash

I read of a man who stood to speak At the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone, From the beginning..
to the end. He noted that first came her date of birth And spoke
the following date with tears, But he said what mattered most of
all Was the dash between those years. (1934 - 1998)

For that dash represents all the time That she spent alive on earth..
And now only those who loved her, Know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own; The cars...the house..the cash,
What matters is how we live and love And how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard...

Are there things you'd like to change? For you never know
how much time is left, That can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough To consider what's true
and real, And always try to understand The way other people
feel And be less quick to anger, And show appreciation more
And love the people in our lives Like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect, And more often wear a smile..
Remembering that this special dash Might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy's being read With your life's actions to rehash...
Would you be proud of the things they say About how you spent your dash?

If you have received this, it means that you are truly special to the
one that sent this to you. I am glad that you're in my life and part of
my dash.

Send this on to the ones you care about even if it means sending it
back to the one who sent it to you...

From My dash to yours.

Laugh long, live long, Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a GIFT...That is why they call it the present. GOD Bless You!

Prevent Swine Flu - Good Advice



The only portals of entry are the nostrils and mouth/throat. In a global epidemic of this nature, it's almost impossible to avoid coming into contact with H1N1 in spite of all precautions. Contact with H1N1 is not so much of a problem as proliferation is.


While you are still healthy and not showing any symptoms of H1N1 infection, in order to prevent proliferation, aggravation of symptoms and development of secondary infections, some very simple steps, not fully highlighted in most official communications, can be practiced (instead of focusing on how to stock N95 or Tamiflu):


1. Frequent hand-washing (well highlighted in all official communications).



2. "Hands-off-the-face" approach. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face (unless you want to eat, bathe or slap).



3. *Gargle twice a day with warm salt water (use Listerine if you don't trust salt). *H1N1 takes 2-3 days after initial infection in the throat/nasal cavity to proliferate and show characteristic symptoms. Simple gargling prevents proliferation. In a way, gargling with salt water has the same effect on a healthy individual that Tamiflu has on an infected one.

Don't underestimate this simple, inexpensive and powerful preventative method.



4. Similar to 3 above, *clean your nostrils at least once every day with warm salt water. *Not everybody may be good at Jala Neti or Sutra Neti (very good Yoga asanas to clean nasal cavities), but *blowing the nose hard once a day and swabbing both nostrils with cotton buds dipped in warm salt water is very effective in bringing down viral population.*



5. *Boost your natural immunity with foods that are rich in Vitamin C (Amla and other citrus fruits). *If you have to supplement with Vitamin C tablets, make sure that it also has Zinc to boost absorption.



6. *Drink as much of warm liquids (tea, coffee, etc) as you can. *Drinking warm liquids has the same effect as gargling, but in the reverse direction. They wash off proliferating viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive, proliferate or do any harm.



I suggest you pass this on to your entire e-list.

You never know who might pay attention to it - and STAY ALIVE because of it.

==================================================

Touching story, good reminder to be ready to be “used.”


Psalm 55:22 -

'Friends are God's way of taking care of us.'

This was written by a Metro Denver Hospice Physician:

I was driving home from a meeting this evening about 5, stuck in traffic on Colorado Blvd., and the car started to choke and splutter and die - I barely managed to coast into a gas station, glad only that I would not be blocking traffic and would have a somewhat warm spot to wait for the tow truck. It wouldn't even turn over.

Before I could make the call, I saw a woman walking out of the quickie mart building, and it looked like she slipped on some ice and fell into a gas pump, so I got out to see if she was okay

When I got there, it looked more like she had been overcome by sobs than that she had fallen; she was a young woman who looked really haggard with dark circles under her eyes. She dropped something as I helped her up, and I picked it up to give it to her. It was a nickel.

At that moment, everything came into focus for me: the crying woman, the ancient Suburban crammed full of stuff with 3 kids in the back (1 in a car seat), and the gas pump reading $4.95.

I asked her if she was okay and if she needed help, and she just kept saying 'I don't want my kids to see me crying,' so we stood on the other side of the pump from her car. She said she was driving to California and that things were very hard for her right now.

So I asked, 'And you were praying?' That made her back away from me a little, but I assured her I was not a crazy person and said, 'He heard you, and He sent me.'

I took out my card and swiped it through the card reader on the pump so she could fill up her car completely, and while it was fueling, walked to the next door McDonald's and bought 2 big bags of food, some gift certificates for more, and a big cup of coffee. She gave the food to the kids in the car, who attacked it like wolves, and we stood by the pump eating fries and talking a little.

She told me her name, and that she lived in Kansas City. Her boyfriend left 2 months ago and she had not been able to make ends meet. She knew she wouldn't have money to pay rent Jan. 1, and finally in desperation had finally called her parents, with whom she had not spoken in about 5 years. They lived in California and said she could come live with them and try to get on her feet there.

So she packed up everything she owned in the car. She told the kids they were going to California for Christmas, but not that they were going to live there.

I gave her my gloves, a little hug and said a quick prayer with her for safety on the road. As I was walking over to my car, she said, 'So, are you like an angel or something?'

This definitely made me cry. I said, 'Sweetie, at this time of year angels are really busy, so sometimes God uses regular people.'

It was so incredible to be a part of someone else's miracle. And of course, you guessed it, wh en I got in my car it started right away and got me home with no problem. I'll put it in the shop tomorrow to check, but I suspect the mechanic won't find anything wrong.

Sometimes the angels fly close enough to you that you can hear the flutter of their wings...

Psalms 55:22 -- 'Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee. He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.'


My instructions were to pick four people that I wanted God to bless, especially for the months left in 2009, and I picked you.

Please pass this to four people you want to be blessed and a copy back to me.


Here is the prayer:

'Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and email buddies reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace, In precious name. Amen.'

I know I picked more than four -- you can, too.

Subject: Things a burgler won't tell you


1. Of course I look familiar. I was here just last week cleaning your carpets, painting your shutters, or delivering your new refrigerator.

2. Hey, thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in your yard last week. While I was in there, I unlatched the back window to make my return a little easier.

3. Love those flowers. That tells me you have taste … and taste means there are nice things inside. Those yard toys your kids leave out always make me wonder what type of gaming system they have.

4. Yes, I really do look for newspapers piled up on the driveway. And I might leave a pizza flyer in your front door to see how long it takes you to remove it.

5. If it snows while you’re out of town, get a neighbor to create car and foot tracks into the house. Virgin drifts in the driveway are a dead giveaway.

6. If decorative glass is part of your front entrance, don’t let your alarm company install the control pad where I can see if it’s set. That makes it too easy.

7. A good security company alarms the window over the sink. And the windows on the second floor, which often access the master bedroom—and your jewelry. It’s not a bad idea to put motion detectors up there too.

8. It’s raining, you’re fumbling with your umbrella, and you forget to lock your door—understandable. But understand this: I don’t take a day off because of bad weather.

9. I always knock first. If you answer, I’ll ask for directions somewhere or offer to clean your gutters. (Don’t take me up on it.)

10. Do you really think I won’t look in your sock drawer? I always check dresser drawers, the bedside table, and the medicine cabinet.

11. Here’s a helpful hint: I almost never go into kids’ rooms.

12. You’re right: I won’t have enough time to break into that safe where you keep your valuables. But if it’s not bolted down, I’ll take it with me.

13. A loud TV or radio can be a better deterrent than the best alarm system. If you’re reluctant to leave your TV on while you’re out of town, you can buy a $35 device that works on a timer and simulates the flickering glow of a real television. (Find it at [FONT=Verdana]faketv.com[/FONT].)

14. Sometimes, I carry a clipboard. Sometimes, I dress like a lawn guy and carry a rake. I do my best to never, ever look like a crook.

15. The two things I hate most: loud dogs and nosy neighbors.

16. I'll break a window to get in, even if it makes a little noise. If your neighbor hears one loud sound, he'll stop what he's doing and wait to hear it again. If he doesn't hear it again, he'll just go back to what he was doing. It's human nature.

17. I'm not complaining, but why would you pay all that money for a fancy alarm system and leave your house without setting it?

18. I love looking in your windows.. I'm looking for signs that you're home, and for flat screen TVs or gaming systems I'd like. I'll drive or walk through your neighborhood at night, before you close the blinds, just to pick my targets.

19. Avoid announcing your vacation on your Facebook page. It's easier than you think to look up your address.

20. To you, leaving that window open just a crack during the day is a way to let in a little fresh air. To me, it's an invitation.

21. If you don't answer when I knock, I try the door. Occasionally, I hit the jackpot and walk right in.
