Something to Ponder...

Thanks to my friends who sent me such important emails in 2009 and 2010. It's so wonderful that you included me in your quest to inform! I'm sure you wish to thank me for the same!

Because of you:

I stopped drinking Coca-Cola after I found out from you that it's good for removing toilet stains. I stopped going to the movies for fear of sitting on a needle infected with AIDS.

I smell awful, but thank goodness I stopped using deodorant because you said it causes cancer. I don't leave my car in any parking lot even though I sometimes have to walk about seven blocks, because you said that someone might drug me with a perfume sample and then try to rob me.

I also stopped answering the phone because you said that they will ask me to dial a stupid number and then I get a phone bill from hell with calls to Uganda, Singapore, Tokyo and maybe the Mars Rover.

I stopped consuming several foods because you said the estrogen they contain may turn me gay.

I also stopped eating chicken and hamburgers because you told me they are nothing more than horrible mutant freaks with no eyes or feathers that are bred in a lab so that places like McDonalds can sell their Big Macs.

I also stopped drinking anything out of a can - you said that I will get sick from the rat feces and urine.

When I go to parties, I now don't mix with anybody - you said that someone will take my kidneys and leave me taking a nap in a bathtub full of ice.

I donated all my savings to the Amy Bruce account. That poor sick girl that was about to die in the hospital. Funny thing, she never seems to get any older.

I went bankrupt from bounced checks that I wrote, in anticipation of the $15,000.00 that Microsoft and AOL were supposed to send me when I participated in their special e-mail program. It's weird, though, that my new free cell phone never arrived, and neither did the passes for my paid vacation to Disneyland.

But I am positive that all this is because of the chain I broke or forgot to follow and I got a curse from hell.

PS: If you don't send this by e-mail to at least 1200 people in the next ten seconds, a bird will shit on you tomorrow at 3:00 PM!

How To Be A Good Boyfriend

Be true to your girlfriend. The base of any relationship is dependant on how honest you are to each other. It also builds up the respect for each other. However, be tactful when situation demands. At times, the reality is not well accepted by the girl when it comes to dressing sense, looks, style, etc. On such occasions tell them in a way that does not sound derogatory to them and conveys your message as well.

Most of the girls suffer from inferiority complex. Do not let this feeling overpower your girlfriend. Let her play an important role in all the decisions you take in life which is meant for both of you. If not, be prepared for the emotional game as girls often resort to this when they are ignored or not heard.

Communication is very necessary for any relationship to survive. Talk to her and let her know about what you feel, what are your aspirations, what she felt about a particular thing which happened, etc. give them the vibes that she can confide in you everything and would not have to worry about it.

Girls love to be pampered and when it comes to boyfriends they want it all the time. Pamper her with gifts, soft toys, dinner, flowers, cards, CD, books, etc. You do not have to get expensive items each time. Girls get impressed with even the simplest of all things like a single rose or a small key ring. So make efforts to make her feel special and loved.

Romance holds the key for your relationship. If you are romantic, sweet and thoughtful, your relationship would never suffer. Gesture speaks volumes about what you feel for the person. Compliment her, leave her a romantic note, call her unexpectedly just to say those three golden words. Even if both of you have been together for a long time, you need to make efforts to keep the romance alive.

Be interested in her interests. Girls love to talk and want someone to listen to them with a patient ear. It is noted that mostly guys do not take interest which usually leads to fights and tiffs. Show interest in what they say. Do not just blankly listen but be an active participant in the talks. Make them feel that something which is important to them is also important to you.

Do not be clingy and give her space. Being in a relationship does not mean that she has no personal desires. Let her be a free bird and move about freely.

7 Things to Stop Doing Now on Facebook

Using a Weak Password

Avoid simple names or words you can find in a dictionary, even with numbers tacked on the end. Instead, mix upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols. A password should have at least eight characters. One good technique is to insert numbers or symbols in the middle of a word, such as this variant on the word "houses": hO27usEs!

Leaving Your Full Birth Date in Your Profile

It's an ideal target for identity thieves, who could use it to obtain more information about you and potentially gain access to your bank or credit card account. If you've already entered a birth date, go to your profile page and click on the Info tab, then on Edit Information. Under the Basic Information section, choose to show only the month and day or no birthday at all.

Overlooking Useful Privacy Controls

For almost everything in your Facebook profile, you can limit access to only your friends, friends of friends, or yourself. Restrict access to photos, birth date, religious views, and family information, among other things. You can give only certain people or groups access to items such as photos, or block particular people from seeing them. Consider leaving out contact info, such as phone number and address, since you probably don't want anyone to have access to that information anyway.

Posting Your Child's Name in a Caption

Don't use a child's name in photo tags or captions. If someone else does, delete it by clicking on Remove Tag. If your child isn't on Facebook and someone includes his or her name in a caption, ask that person to remove the name.

Mentioning That You'll Be Away From Home

That's like putting a "no one's home" sign on your door. Wait until you get home to tell everyone how awesome your vacation was and be vague about the date of any trip.

Letting Search Engines Find You

To help prevent strangers from accessing your page, go to the Search section of Facebook's privacy controls and select Only Friends for Facebook search results. Be sure the box for public search results isn't checked.

Permitting Youngsters to Use Facebook Unsupervised

Facebook limits its members to ages 13 and over, but children younger than that do use it. If you have a young child or teenager on Facebook, the best way to provide oversight is to become one of their online friends. Use your e-mail address as the contact for their account so that you receive their notifications and monitor their activities. "What they think is nothing can actually be pretty serious," says Charles Pavelites, a supervisory special agent at the Internet Crime Complaint Center. For example, a child who posts the comment "Mom will be home soon, I need to do the dishes" every day at the same time is revealing too much about the parents' regular comings and goings.

Heal The Hurt

When you blame others for your troubles, you give them
Control of your life. Free yourself from your own anger,
From your own resentment, and you'll find vastly more room
For serenity and abundance.

It's bad enough if someone has wronged you in the past. Is
It of any value for you to continue suffering from it?

Your best strategy is not to prolong the pain, or expand
Upon it. Your best strategy is to get past it as quickly as

Whether or not anyone deserves your forgiveness is not the
Point. The point is, you deserve to forgive, to take back
Control of your life, so that you can live abundantly.

Your forgiveness may not even make a difference to those you
Forgive, if they're even aware of it. For you, it makes all
The difference in the world.

When it is you who is feeling the hurt, it is also you who
Can heal the hurt. Heal the hurt, and move past the pain,
With forgiveness.
