"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.


Last week for sure was one of the worst in my life. I sent an email
to the list telling you why I had to postpone last Wednesdays issue
to this week but it was impossible yesterday. I have now a new
computer and hope that this problem will be over now. However,
this computer has Windows Vista and I have to get used to it.


Anyway, my problems seems so small compared with thousands of
people in the state where I live are going through now. As I said,
almost the whole state, Santa Catarina in the south of Brazil, was
flooded. 118 people died buried when the mountains could not secure
the soil.
100,000+ was homeless after their homes was invaded by water.
The water is down now but there is of course enormous problem
re-build everything that was destroyed.


Our town was spared. No flooding here. The river that divide our
town did not flood. A couple of serious landslides but no water.
The reason for all these problems was rain. November had 6 times
normal rain. It rained every single day for 30 days and the last 3 days
before the catastrophe the sky opened with rain I never saw before!
Our town was isolated 3 days and some 6 hours without drinking
water and electricity. But that is nothing compared will all those who
lost all, family members and home.


I hope all this is over now. The sun is shining again and no rain for
3 days.

5. Ask Lena. Health Questions and Answers.



I have the worst smell from deep within my nose. I have chronic
sinusitis but antibiotics isn't working and I've had several now but
still unable to get rid of it. I am being told a surgical-sinus-cleaning
is my last resort to getting rid of these bugs that are creating the
foul smell...Have you seen this and if so what cured it?

I feel desperate but it is very hard to ignore and surgery is not
something I want to do at present...



Chronic sinusitis usually creates a lot of pain and you don't mention
that happening. If you are one of the fortunate that is without pain,
count you blessings! Two things will be required to relieve your sinus
problem and odor.  My oldest son had this very problem last year and
didn't tell me until he had seen the doctor several times and had been
given a couple of different antibiotics that didn't change a thing either.
Finally he called and asked me what he might do to stop the problem.
Of course, I had an answer and he was free of his infection within two weeks.
Here is what he and several others have done and achieved success.

the gas prevents oxygen from reaching the brain. This causes

teens. How many brain cells die is unknown.  It's a very scary
thing, because it can also kill without warning.



6. This weeks joke!

A Young Minister.

As a young minister, I was asked by a funeral director to hold
a grave-side service for a homeless man, with no family or
friends, who had died while traveling through the area. The
funeral was to be held at a cemetery way back in the country,
and this man would be the first to be laid to rest there.

As I was not familiar with the backwoods area, I became lost;
and being a typical man I did not stop for directions. I finally
arrived an hour late.

I saw the crew, eating lunch, but the hearse was nowhere in
sight. I apologized to the workers for my tardiness, and stepped
to the side of the open grave, where I saw the vault lid already
in place. I assured the workers I would not hold them long but
this was the proper thing to do.

The workers gathered around, still eating their lunch. I poured
out my heart and soul. As I preached, the workers began to say
"Amen," "Praise the Lord," and "Glory," I preached, and I
preached, like I'd never preached before: from Genesis all the
way to Revelations.

I closed the lengthy service with a prayer and walked to my
car. I felt I had done my duty for the homeless man and that
the crew would leave with a renewed sense of purpose and
dedication, in spite of my tardiness.

As I was opening the door and taking off my coat, I overheard
one of the workers saying to another, "I ain't never seen
anything like this before... and I've been putting in septic tanks
for twenty years."

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

19 of 22. 20 in the next issue.)


And as it is above, so here below
In little as in large, in woman, man
Specific gravities pull down the slow
And speed the quick towards the golden mean
The middle way, the moderate, gentle beat
That hearts have in repose, that sleepers breathe
When free of dreams, that meditators note
When watching how the body tends to seethe
With revenants when at rest, a flood of hosts
Of idle wandering thoughts, with ample space
Between them for clear sight, between the ghosts
Of our desire the void that leads to grace;
But they are legion; demons don't confess
Between our heavens and hells lies emptiness.



Poetry brought to you by Charlotte Appleton.

Politicians on a Plane.

Three politicians are flying in a plane. The first one looks
at the second, buffs his carefully manicured fingernails
against his Brooks Brothers suit, chuckles, and says,
"You know, I could throw a $10,000 bill out the
window right now and make one person very happy."

The second shrugs his shoulders and says, "Well,
I could throw ten $1,000 bills out the window and
make ten people very happy".

The third tosses her perfectly coiffed hair and says,
"Of course, then, I could throw one-hundred $100
bills out the window and make a hundred people
very happy."

The pilot rolls his eyes, looks at all of them and says,
"I could throw all of you out the window and make
the whole country happy."

15. Computer Security Tip of the week.


Brought to you by Syd Tash at:


Crooks Drain Credit Lines.


As if the sub-prime mortgage mess in the U.S. is not bad enough,
the crooks are now tapping into your home equity line of credit.
Actually, this is not new, and I have mentioned it before.

Here’s how it works:


The hackers comb through public databases including property deeds and
mortgages, to accumulate information on people with good credit and
available home equity lines of credit. They will often dig up your birth
date and Social Security/Insurance Number, two critical pieces of data
which you should avoid revealing unless you really have to.


Then the criminal orders credit reports in your name, to check for even
more info and to verify your bank account balances. Next, the baddies
call your bank and ask it to wire a large chunk of that credit line to
an offshore bank.


What to do? Protect your personal information well, as always. If you
won’t need your line of credit in the next little while, close it.
Watch your bank statements closely. U.S. residents can request a free
copy of their credit report from each of the big three credit bureaus.


You can do that three times a year, at each credit bureau. So that means
you can check your report nine times a year, for free. Do it.

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