F1 Key Virus

Check this out at Snopes.

I received a “heads up” from a friend, so I went to (independently from the link below) and it is confirmed. Apparently while on the internet you may get a pop up box prompting you to push the “F1” key (normally the “Help” key. This will release a virus into your computer. DO NOT PUSH F1. Microsoft has confirmed the but has not yet released a patch to fix it. Apparently the pop up box may just keep popping up and annoying you but DO NOT PUSH F1. Just click the X to get rid of the box. Closing out of the program and going in again may keep it from popping up again for a while, but no promises.

Do not press the F1 key no matter how many times your computer asks you too.


I do not like it Uncle Sam, I do not like it Sam I am. I do not like these dirty crooks, I do not like how they cook the books. I do not like when Congress steals, I do not like their secret deals. I do not like this Speaker Nan, I do not like this "YES WE CAN". I do not like this kind of 'HOPE',......... I do not like it nope! nope! nope!

Smart Monkey

With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and

Wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out
To the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured,

Educated and happy.

Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think,
Good grief, look how smart I am!

Must be where 'Smart Ass' came from!

I've been called that before, and I told that person: "It is better to be a smart one, than a dumb one!"

Quit paying your insurance premiums.

Free health care is almost here.

The doctor will see you now.

Is there a magic cutoff period when
Offspring become accountable for their own
Actions? Is there a wonderful moment when
Parents can become detached spectators in
The lives of their children and shrug, 'It's
Their life,' and feel nothing?

When I was in my twenties, I stood in a hospital
Corridor waiting for doctors to put a few
Stitches in my daughter's head. I asked, 'When do
You stop worrying?' The nurse said,
'When they get out of the accident stage.' My
Dad just smiled faintly and said nothing.

When I was in my thirties, I sat on a little
Chair in a classroom and heard how one of my
Children talked incessantly, disrupted the class,
And was headed for a career making
License plates. As if to read my mind, a teacher
Said, 'Don't worry, they all go through
This stage and then you can sit back, relax and
Enjoy them.' My dad just smiled
Faintly and said nothing.

When I was in my forties, I spent a lifetime
Waiting for the phone to ring, the cars to come
Home, the front door to open. A friend said,
'They're trying to find themselves. Don't worry,
In a few years, you can stop worrying. They'll be
Adults.' My dad just smiled faintly
And said nothing.

By the time I was 50, I was sick & tired of being
Vulnerable. I was still worrying over my
Children, but there was a new wrinkle. There
Was nothing I could do about it. My
Dad just smiled faintly and said nothing. I
Continued to anguish over their failures, be
Tormented by their frustrations and absorbed in
Their disappointments.

My friends said that when my kids got married I
Could stop worrying and lead my own
Life. I wanted to believe that, but I was
Haunted by my dad's warm smile and his
Occasional, 'You look pale. Are you all right?
Call me the minute you get home. Are
You depressed about something?'

Can it be that parents are sentenced to a
Lifetime of worry? Is concern for one another
Handed down like a torch to blaze the trail of
Human frailties and the fears of the
Unknown? Is concern a curse or is it a virtue
That elevates us to the highest form of life?

One of my children became quite irritable
Recently, saying to me, 'Where were you? I've been
Calling for 3 days, and no one answered I was worried.'
I smiled a warm smile.
The torch has been passed.

(And also to your children. That's the fun)

Welcome to Socialism, Comrades!

We've passed a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese. and financed by a country that's broke.

What could possibly go wrong?".

A Better Thought Than HealthCare....

After being beat up in the Healthcare debate and then the vote, we all need to remember the things that make life worth wile. This is what makes life worth wile, right after knowing that our God is still in control.

Love your families!

Girl Friends

A group of 40-year-old ladies discuss where they

should meet for dinner.

Finally it's agreed that they should meet at the

Ocean View Restaurant because the waiters there are young

and hot!

10 years later, at 50 years of age, the same ladies

discuss where they should meet for dinner.

Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the

Ocean View Restaurant because the food is good and they have

a great wine selection.

10 years later, at 60 years of age, the same ladies

discuss where they should meet for dinner.

Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the

Ocean View Restaurant because they can eat there in peace

and quiet and have a beautiful view of the ocean.

10 years later, at age 70, the same ladies discuss

where they should meet for dinner.

Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the

Ocean View Restaurant because it's wheelchair accessible

and they even have an elevator!

10 years later, at age 80, the same ladies discuss

where they should meet for dinner.

Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the

Ocean View Restaurant, because none of them have ever

been there before.

Real Teachers

For all the teachers in my life!

Real teachers buy Excedrin and Advil in bulk at Sam's.

Real teachers will eat anything left in the teacher's lounge.

Real teachers grade papers in the car, during commercials, in faculty meetings, in the bathroom, and at the end of nine weeks have even been seen grading in church.

Real teachers cheer when they hear that April 1st does not fall on a school day.

Real teachers can't walk past a crowd of kids without straightening up the line.

Real teachers never sit down without first checking the seat of the chair.

Real teachers have disjointed necks from writing on boards without turning around.

Real teachers are written up in medical journals for the size and elasticity of their bladders.

Real teachers wear glasses from trying to read the fine print in the teacher's manuals.

Real teachers have been timed gulping down lunch in 2 minutes 18 seconds. Master teachers can eat faster than that.

Real teachers can predict exactly which parents show up at open house.

Real teachers understand the importance of making sure every kid gets a Valentine.

Real teachers never teach the conjugations of "lie" and "lay" to eighth graders.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Feeding the Homeless

Jesus Christ--One Solitary Life

He was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant. He grew up in another village, where he worked in a carpenter shop until he was 30. Then, for three years, he was an itinerant preacher.

He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family or owned a home. He didn't go to college. He never lived in a big city. He never traveled 200 miles from the place where he was born. He did none of the things that usually accompany greatness. He had no credentials but himself.

He was only 33 when the tide of public opinion turned against him. His friends ran away. One of them denied him. He was turned over to his enemies and went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed to a cross between two thieves. While he was dying, his executioners gambled for his garments, the only property he had on earth. When he was dead, he was laid in a borrowed grave, through the pity of a friend.

Twenty centuries have come and gone, and today he is the central figure of the human race. I am well within the mark when I say that all the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed, all the parliaments that ever sat, all the kings that ever reigned--put together--have not affected the life of man on this earth as much as that one, solitary life.

Attributed to James Allen Francis.

As I read this, a statement from our pastor came to mind. If Atheist's don't believe in God, why do they spend so much time trying to prove He doesn't exist?

A Shocking Revelation

This is exactly how I felt when I had dogs!

As I was sitting here admiring my beautiful babies (the dogs) I began to think about their lives and I realized the following facts about them:

* They sleep about 18 hours a day.
* They have their food prepared for them.
* They generally eat whenever they want, 24/7/365.
* Their meals are provided at no cost to them.
* They visit the vet once a year for their checkup, and again during the year if any medical needs arise.

For this they pay nothing, and nothing is required of them.
* They live in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than they need, and they are not

required to do any upkeep. If they make a mess, someone else cleans it up.
* They have their choice of luxurious places to sleep and they receive these accommodations

absolutely free.
* They are living like royalty, and have absolutely no expenses whatsoever.
* All of their costs are picked up by others who go out and earn a living every day.
* I was just thinking about all this, when it suddenly hit me like a ton of bricks:

Holy Cow! dogs are democrats!

This is QUEEN PELOSI'S NEW JET!!! And the Democrats talk about Sarah's dresses???

Queen Pelosi wasn't happy with the small USAF C-20B jet, Gulfstream III, that comes with the Speaker's job ... OH NO! Queen Pelosi was aggravated that this little jet had to stop to refuel, so she ordered a Big Fat, 200-seat, USAF C-32, Boeing 757 jet that could get her back to California without stopping! I understand that a former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, flew commerical most of the time.

Many, many legislators walked by and grinned with glee as Joe informed everyone of what Queen Nancy's Big Fat Jet costs us, the hard working American tax payers, literally thousands of gallons of fuel every week.

Since she only works 3 days a week, this gas guzzling jet gets fueled and she flies home to California every Friday and returns every Monday, at a cost to the taxpayers (YOU and ME are those taxpayers!) of about $60,000, one way!

As Joe put it ..."unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back on Monday night and that costs us another $60,000!" Taxpayers, that is $480,000 per month and that is an annual cost to us of $5,760,000!!!
No wonder she complains about the cost of this war ... It might cramp her style and she is styling on my back and yours. I think of the military families in this country doing without and this woman, who heads up the most do-nothing Congress in the history of our country, keeps fueling that jet while doing nothing.

Queen Pelosi wants you and me to conserve our carbon footprint. She wants us to buy smaller cars and Obama wants us to get a bicycle pump and air up our tires. Who do these people think they are??? Their motto is .. Don't do as I do .... JUST DO AS I SAY!

If you think this is outrageous, forward it to all those on your email list! Keep in mind the figures above do NOT include the cost of plane or crew ... just the fuel!!! One has to wonder what the total package costs us?
And on top of that ... now she wants to tax our IRA's & 401K's!

I have to put a PS on this. This is partly true, but there are some more facts at

It does seem like they all have way too many perks for their jobs.

Remember the day I borrowed your brand
new car and I dented it?
I thought you'd kill me, but you didn't.
And remember the time I dragged you to the
beach and you said it would rain, and it did?
I thought you'd say, "I told you so." But you didn't.
Do you remember the time I flirted with all the
guys to make you jealous, and you were?
I thought you'd leave me, but you didn't.
Do you remember the time I spilled strawberry
pie all over your car rug?
I thought you'd hit me, but you didn't.
And remember the time I forgot to tell you the
dance was formal and you showed up in Jeans?
I thought you'd drop me, but you didn't.
Yes, there were lots of things you didn't do.
But you put up with me, and you loved me,
and you protected me.
There were lots of things I wanted to make up to
you when you returned from Vietnam.
But you didn't.

Remember, today is the only day we ever have.

PSA (Publice Service Announcement)

I got this today, and think I will be doing these. Hope they are of some use to you!


Peroxide VS Bleach

"I would like to tell you of the benefits of that
plain little ole bottle of 3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store. What does bleach cost? Most doctors don't tell you about peroxide.

"Have you ever smelled bleach in a doctor's office?
NO!!! Why? Because it smells, and it is not healthy! Ask the nurses who work in the doctor's offices, and ask them if they use bleach at home. They are wiser and know better!

"Did you also know bleach was invented in the late 40's? It's chlorine, folks! And it was used to kill our troops.

"Peroxide was invented during WWI. It was used to save and help cleanse the needs of our troops and hospitals. Please think about this:

1. Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. (I do it when I bathe.) No more canker sores, and your teeth will be whiter without expensive pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash.

2.. Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of peroxide to keep them free of germs.

3. Clean your counters and table tops with peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters.

4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria..

5. I had fungus on my feet for years until I sprayed a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry.

6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes several times a day. My husband has seen gangrene that would not heal with any medicine but was healed by soaking in peroxide.

7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will.

8. Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, plugged sinus. It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes, and then blow your nose into a tissue.

9. If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen greatly.

10. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath
to help rid boils, fungus, or other skin infections.

11. You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, pour it directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.

12. I use peroxide to clean my mirrors. There is no smearing, which is why I love it so much for this.

"I could go on and on. It is a little brown bottle no home should be without! "With prices of most necessities rising, I'm glad there's a way to save tons of money in such a simple, healthy manner!"

This information really woke me up. I hope you gain something from it, too.

Pass this on .. and on .... and on!
