|Thank you, Joan!|
From Me ('65) of NC - 11/30/15 - "Take time":
|Some thoughts as we enter the holiday season... It is important to remember that not everyone is surrounded by large wonderful families. Some of us have problems during the holidays, and some of us are overcome with great sadness when we remember the loved ones who are not with us. Many people have no one with whom to spend these times, and are besieged by loneliness. We all need caring, loving thoughts right now. Please pause a bit during these hectic days to consider what you can do to lighten the burdens of someone else who may have family problems, health struggles, job issues, financial crises, or worries of any kind, and just need to know someone cares. Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune.|
From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 11/30/18:
As we turn the calendar to December tomorrow, remember the days
get shorter and the nights longer. But remember, if you live
near the sea or the inland coastal waters, the sunsets are
always beautiful no matter when the sun goes down. It is like
God's blessings, they are bountiful and we continually receive
them yet so often we forget to thank Him. I'll do it for you
tonight. Thank you, Lord, from all my followers for all you've
done for them and for me today. God bless you, everyone.
Thank you, Jimmy!
From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL -11/26/18 - "Not all Thieves Are Stupid--READ lessons to learn":
|This is kind of scary.
1. LONG - TERM PARKING
Some people left their car in the long-term parking at San Jose while away, and someone broke into the car. Using the information on the car’s registration in the glove compartment, they drove the car to the people’s home in Pebble Beach and robbed it. So, I guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should NOT leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote garage door opener. This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.
Someone had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard. When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents. Something to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your home address in it. Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.
3. CELL PHONES:
I never thought of this! This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her cell phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc., was stolen. Twenty minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says, "I received your text asking about our Pin number and I’ve replied a little while ago." When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text” hubby" in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.
a. Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc.
b. And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.
c. Also, when you're being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places to meet "family and friends" who text you.
4. PURSE IN THE GROCERY CART SCAM:
A lady went grocery-shopping at a local mall and left her purse sitting in the children's seat of the cart while she reached something off a shelf. Wait till you read the WHOLE story! Her wallet was stolen, and she reported it to the store personnel. After returning home, she received a phone call from the Mall Security to say that they had her wallet and that although there was no money in it, it did still hold her personal papers. She immediately went to pick up her wallet, only to be told by Mall Security that they had not called her. By the time she returned home again, her house had been broken into and burglarized. The thieves knew that by calling and saying they were Mall Security, they could lure her out of her house long enough for them to burglarize it.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON
Even if this does not pertain to you, please let your family and friends know so they don't get caught in a scam.
YOWZERS! Thank you so much, Wayne!

Once Upon a December
Dancing Bears, Painted wings, Things I almost remember, And a song someone sings, Once upon a December Someone holds me, Safe and warm, Horses prance through a silver storm, Figures dancing gracefully, Across my memory.... Far away, Long ago, Glowing dim as an ember Things my heart used to know Once upon a December Vocalizing Someone holds me Safe and warm, Horses prance through a silver storm, Figures dancing gracefully Across my memory..... Far away, long ago, Glowing dim as an ember Things my heart used to know Things it yearns to remember And a song Someone sings Once upon a December
