    the names of people like this gentleman are the names we should know and praise – instead of those who are famous for just being famous;

    thank you sir for using your actions and genetic gift to demonstrate that you value life – almost all lives you will never know;

    Another tidbit from my in-box. I hope it helps someone.


    1. Some people left their car in the long-term parking at San Jose while away, and someone broke into the car. Using the information on the car’s registration in the glove compartment, they drove the car to the people’s home in Pebble Beach and robbed it. So I guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should NOT leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote garage door opener.

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

    2. GPS.

    Someone 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.


    I never thought of this…….

    This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her cell 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 When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn.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:

    a. 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….

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

    c. Also, when you’re being texted 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.

    4. Purse in the grocery cart scam…

    A lady went grocery-shopping at a local mall and left her purse sitting in the children’s seat of the cart while she reached something off a shelf…wait till you read the WHOLE story! Her wallet was stolen, and she reported it to the store personnel. After returning home, she received a phone call from the Mall Security to say that they had her wallet and that although there was no money in it, it did still hold her personal papers. She immediately went to pick up her wallet, only to be told by Mall Security that they had not called her. By the time she returned home again, her house had been broken into and burglarized. The thieves knew that by calling and saying they were Mall Security, they could lure her out of her house long enough for them to burglarize it.

    What did God think after he created Adam?

    “I can do better.”

    Then he created Eve.

    What did he think then?

    “Dammit, my last one was better!”

    The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: “Take only ONE. God is watching.”

    Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, “Take all you want. God is watching the apples.”

      This Native American verse makes me proud to be an enrolled tribal member. I did not know of my heritage until twenty years ago after my tribe was restored. Looking at me you would not recognize me as Native American. The tribe had lost their tribal status being disbanded when I was a small child and not restored until I was in my forties. My Dad did not talk of it. Now I have been living on the reservation for around ten years learning about my relatives and heritage. I decided to give back to my tribe by serving on the tribal education committee since I had taught in public schools for twenty-two years prior to retiring. Now I am just a tribal elder.

      The sad part is that those ppl that voted against the UAW will be the first ones wanting more hours and overtime. Go figure.

        I don’t get it. People will believe anything they hear from the guy down at the pub … or their Republican elected official.

        Did you see some of the workers from that same plant interviewed on TV earlier today? They were all very optimistic and said “bet on it” that the union would be voted in.. Sad.

      2. Sleep will be sweeter knowing our POTUS will eventually fly back East overtop of our heads here in the Midwest! (My grandson and I once were out on my street looking upward, when we heard Air Force One was flying overhead, having taken off from the local airport! He was totally as thrilled as I was.)

      Sweet dreams to you, MP!

      Probably just selfishness of not wanting to pay union dues, having faith in the management and believing those saying it would hurt them in the end. They are not too different from those voting for Republicans.
