2. Hello Dear subscriber! [FIRSTNAME]


Greetings from Brazil! :-)

Temperature right now 11 P.M. October 22, 2008.

+ 26 Celsius. Lot's of heavy rain and thunder storms, but warm.


Hope you all are having a great week!


"Give everyone more in use value than you take from him in cash value."
- Wallace D. Wattles

I woke up this morning! - All the rest is BONUS!

Take good care of YOUR day today!


Hey Folks.

Rain, rain, rain! :-) For one whole week it has been raining
daily. So the subject of this email is a lie. :-)
Both Monday and Tuesday our construction was on a halt.
It simply was not possible to work with all that rain. Everything
wet, including the guys working.

Fortunately today no rain so far, though the forecast was thunder
storms and more heavy rain. So they were quick to do what was
possible to do and part of the roof was done today. Tomorrow
the forecast also is thunder storms and rain. Let's hope they are
wrong again. Once they finished the roof they can start working
inside rainy days.

How is this financial crises getting to you? As living in Brazil I have
personally not been affected. So far, contrary. I get my pension and
other earnings in dollars so I have seen an increase in earnings with
about 40% or more. That's how much Brazilian currency lost compared
with USD the last couple of weeks.

However, there is days when I think of going to the bank and cash
all my savings and put it under my pillow to secure my construction.
Though all politicians always talk about how secure the banks are, well,
I simply don't trust them. If US banks can go bankrupt, Brazilians
for sure also can. And I don't know anything about government
guarantees here. The whole situation is scary.

the selling of a stick of candy to a little child, put
into it the thought of increase, and make sure that the
customer is impressed with the thought."

5. Ask Lena. Health Questions and Answers.



I'm concerned that my thinning hair is due to the fact
that I do not drink milk as I'm allergic all my life and
I take calcium supplements occasionally but not real regular.
I'm thinking that my thinning hair and dry skin is due to
the lack of calcium in my body? I would like your opinion
on that. If it's not lack of calcium then what could cause
hair falling out and extreme dry skin?



Without your age I am only guessing at most of this answer.
I'm assuming you are somewhere between 25 and 50. Yes, that's
a broad age range but falling hair and dry skin are major
tip offs that you are most likely experiencing perimenopausal
problems not a simple lack of calcium problem.

a product called Dust Off. This is a canister of compressed air
that is designed to clean dust from computers. The compressed air
uses a propellant gas that can be dangerous if it is inhaled because
the gas prevents oxygen from reaching the brain. This causes
dizziness and a feeling of being high, making it attractive to some
teens. How many brain cells die is unknown.  It's a very scary
thing, because it can also kill without warning.

The Parrot.

As a guy takes his seat on an airplane, he is surprised to
find a parrot strapped in next to him. After taking off,
the flight attendant comes around to serve the passengers
on the plane.

The guy asks the flight attendant for a coffee and the parrot
squawks: "And get ME a coke...NOW!"

The flight attendant, flustered by the parrot's attitude, brings
back a coke for the parrot. However, she forgets the coffee
for the guy.

As the guy points this out, the parrot drains his glass and

"Get me another coke or I'll really create a scene!"

Quite upset, the attendant comes back shaking, with another
coke, but still no coffee...

Irritated at her forgetfulness, the man decides to try the
parrot's approach.

"I've asked you twice for a coffee. Go and get it right now,
or I'll create a scene that will make HIS look like a
Victorian tea party!"

The next moment, both the guy and the parrot are grabbed
and thrown out of the emergency exit by two burly security

Hurtling towards earth, the parrot turns to him and says:
"You're pretty cheeky for a guy who can't fly!"

Field Trials For Your Sporting Dog.

For those of you who aren't too familiar with the term
"field trials," it is a sport in which the sporting dog
competes under hunting conditions. The dog can pick up the
scent of a rabbit or small animal and follow the trail until
he's found it. There is also the bird trials where the animal
retrieves a fallen bird. During competition, the different
breeds are divided into various groups. The following groups
are: Pointing Dog Trials, Retriever Trials, Spaniel Trials,
Beagle Trials & Hound Trials. The following guidelines are
an example of what is expected before entering your sporting dog.

11. Poetry by Charlotte Appleton.


The Assent

A Sonnet Sequence

For Fernando Maza, painter

Form is emptiness, emptiness is form.
Without form there can be no emptiness,
Without emptiness there can be no form.
Heart Sutra, Buddhist Scripture

14 of 22. 15 in the next issue.)


But nothing lasts, and therein lies my hope,
My only hope, that changing, things may change,
That she will keep her vows, renew her step
Along the straight and narrow. Rich and strange,
The ways of women in their later life
As beauty gathers in irrelevance
And leaves them with the diet and the knife,
The paint-box and the salve to keep romance
Alive within the mirror and the bed.
I will not last that long, I do not need
Cosmetic thoughts and tricks to keep my head,
The furies and the surgeon come to bleed
My life away, I have a quarter-age
And then my name is painted from the page.



Poetry brought to you by Charlotte Appleton.

The Farmer & the State Trooper.

A farmer got pulled over by a state trooper for speeding.
The trooper started to lecture the farmer about his speed,
and in general began to throw his weight around to try to
make the farmer uncomfortable. Finally, the trooper got
around to writing out the ticket, and as he was doing that
he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around
his head.

The farmer said, "having some problems with circle flies
there, are ya?"

The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said "Well
yeah, if that's what they are? I never heard of circle flies."

So the farmer says "Well, circle flies are common on
farms. See, they're called circle flies because they're
almost always found circling around the back end of
a horse."

The trooper says, "Oh," and goes back to writing the
ticket. Then after a minute he stops and says,
"Hey... wait a minute, are you trying to call me a
horse's ass?"

The farmer says, "Oh no, officer. I have too much respect
for law enforcement and police officers to even think
about calling you a horse's ass."

The trooper says, "Well, that's a good thing," and goes
back to writing the ticket.

After a long pause, the farmer says,

"Hard to fool the flies though."

15. Computer Security Tip of the week.


Brought to you by Syd Tash at:


Here is Why ID Theft is No. 1.


If you are a regular reader of these Tips, you know
I have often advised you never to reveal the three
critical pieces of personal information unless you
really have to. These are, your Social Insurance/Security
Number, date of birth and mother’s maiden name. And of
course you should guard all your personal data well.


So why is identity theft the top consumer fraud crime
for the past seven years in a row?


The U.S. Government Accountability Office has just
released a study of 247 counties across the country,
looking at how they handle sensitive info such as Social
Security Numbers, birth dates, land and marriage records,
bank and credit card numbers, etc. once they have
posted this stuff online.


Here are some startling results of that study:


* only some 16% of the counties have any control at all
over who can access the records;

* just 23% of counties make any effort to verify the identity
 of persons or companies requesting the info.


Businesses can obtain these records in bulk, and use or
resell them as they see fit. There appears to be no law
prohibiting or controlling the posting and access of personal
data online. Several such laws are pending in Congress now.


Awareness of the problem is growing, and government agencies
are making some efforts to reduce their use of Social Security
Numbers. That’s a good thing.


It may sometimes seem futile to continue making the effort
to protect your sensitive data. Let’s all do it anyway, and
hope the situation improves soon.

How to Protect Your Computer Online. He has been keeping Internet
surfers safe and secure since the last century. Find out how he
