Why Are These Children Driving?
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 2:10 PM
I'm still trying to erase the shock from a few incidents recently reported in the news. In separate incidences in two different states, the police pulled over vehicles where they found 9-year olds to be the drivers! In each case, the father was too drunk to drive and so rather than waiting it out before getting in the car, they decided that their 9-year old... Read More...

Hurricane Preparation Hints
Friday, August 26, 2011 1:46 PM
My apologies to those now evacuating and those who are bearing down for the arrival of Hurricane Irene in their city. Living in Florida, I know that it is extremely important to have some sort of disaster kit handy when preparing for the worst. For those who do not reside in Hurricane Irene's path, it is best to have these items purchased and prepared in... Read More...

Possible Hotel / Motel Scam
Tuesday, July 13, 2010 4:26 PM
This is a scam that is being circulated via email and possibly on the internet. Not sure whether it is true or not, but it is best to err on the side of caution. You check in to a hotel or motel while traveling and settle in to your room. You receive a call on your room phone from someone who says that they work at the front desk and ran into a problem when trying... Read More...
Swine Flu Symptoms
Wednesday, April 29, 2009 3:12 PM
With “swine flu” having been confirmed to be quickly spreading throughout the US, many people are in a panic to check online for the symptoms of this potential epidemic. More important than where this disease might be showing up is whether or not it could be affecting you or a loved one. At this time, reports of a few schools in New York and Chicago are closing...

True or False Emails: Safety Tips
Friday, January 23, 2009 10:34 AM
This post is not so much to find out whether this email is true or false, but rather I am posting it as a safety tip. I received this email today from a family member, it's really long, but I could not pick a part to cut out. It was all good info: “Because of recent abductions in daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation... Read More...

True or False Emails: Jury Duty Scam
Tuesday, January 13, 2009 2:28 PM
Again, this email is “hot off the press” as far as my personal email account is concerned. One of my family members just emailed it to me. This email starts out with passing this to everyone in your address book because you could soon be affected by it. Of course, we will inform you at the end of this blog post, whether this is a true or false email. You receive... Read More...
True or False Emails: Females Who Accept Business Cards
Thursday, January 8, 2009 11:24 AM
There is no limit to the number of email you receive from well-meaning friends who want to help protect you and keep you safe. I have found by starting this series in my blog that it is best to do your research before scaring every female you know with an email account from leaving the house. The following might really scare women who go buy gas alone, but the... Read More...
True or False Emails: Paper On Your Back Car Window
Monday, January 5, 2009 3:04 PM
This one is hot off the press to my email account. A friend emailed me to day that she got the following warning: A car was parked in a public parking area and when the owner got in and drove away, they noticed a sticker on their rear windshield. After arriving at home, the owner of the vehicle took the sticker off and noticed that it was a gas receipt. Apparently... Read More...
True or False Emails: Area Code Scam
Tuesday, December 30, 2008 3:17 PM
I found that in checking my email account I received this one about 3 different times over the years. It involves receiving a call form an “809” area code. The caller leaves an urgent message on your voicemail (regarding a sick family member; someone in your family has dies; you have won a prize; anything to get you to call) and a phone number to call that starts...

True or False Emails
Friday, December 26, 2008 10:48 AM
I think that the majority of us who have an email account receive those emails that include the story of some poor soul as a warning to the rest of us to be careful. The question is posed are they true or false emails? Doesn't it aggravate you to get an email that you forward to your friends and then later find out it was false? Or you don't bother to...
