The Chinese lunar new year is the year of the snake.   It sure is in Florida !  I've gotten many emails to update you guys on our big snake hunt.  The Python Challenge attracted about 1500 hunters from all over and at the end of the hunt (Feb.10) sixty-eight pythons had been eradicated from our Everglades.  Had they been able to hunt in the Everglades National park, there would have probably been more successful.  With that many people hunting and only 68 caught tells you how elusive these snakes really are.  They are so well-adapted here and as you walk along, you can actually step on one without knowing it was there.  According to the National Academy of Sciences, rabbits and raccoon have completely vanished from the Everglades.  Possums are down 98% and bobcats 88%.  If we don't do something, there will be nothing BUT these snakes (and some alligators) in the Everglades.  It's not their fault they are there.   Some people put them out when they get too big for a pet.   There is a hypothesis that during hurricane Andrew, thousands escaped snake farms in the area.  Whatever, it's getting to be a dangerous place.  I feel sorry for the snakes but as food declines in the Everglades, guess where the snakes will go for it -- yards where your pets and children are.  Florida has asked Congress for help but all they say is "it's Florida's problem. ( Invasive Pythons Aren't Just Florida's Problem --   They will expand to other places that can support them.   They are excellent swimmers too... how do you think they got to Key West?  And they are reported to already be in the panhandle of Florida... watch out Southern USA.

We have a Venom 1 Team in Miami (attached to the Miami-Dade Fire Dept) who's job it is to go out when people spot unwanted snakes and animals in their yards.   They keep many types of anti-venom so whenever anyone is bitten, they are there.  Many people would die without this team and you can watch them work on Animal Planet's Swamp Wars.

Difference between http and https-- GREAT information!
Once in a while, there is something that comes down
the pike that is of real importance.
What is the difference between http and https?

Don't know how many of you are aware of this
difference, but it is worth sending to any who do not.

The main difference between http:/// and https:// is it's
all about keeping you secure.
HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.

The S (big surprise) stands for "Secure."
If you visit a website or web page, and look at the address in
the web browser, it will likely begin with the
following: http://.
This means that the website is talking to your browser
using the regular "unsecured" language. In other
words, it is possible for someone to "eavesdrop" on
your computer's conversation with the website. If you
fill out a form on the website, someone might see the
information you send to that site.

This is why you never ever enter your credit card number
in an http website!
But if the web address begins with https://,
that basically means your computer is talking to
the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.

If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card
information, you should automatically look to see if the
web address begins with https://.

If it doesn't, you should NEVER enter sensitive information...
....such as a credit card number, SS #, etc.

Glen, why do you always get so dirty? Asked the teacher.
Well, I'm a lot closer to the ground than you are. He replied

A professor of clinical psychology at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand, included a lecture on crowd
psychology in his annual course. To illustrate mass hysteria, he regularly showed TV news footage of teenage crowds
greeting the Beatles at the local airport in the 1960's. One year, when he ran the footage, he heard squeals and bursts of laughter from his students.

When the film ended he asked what had caused the hilarity. Replied one student, "We recognized some of our mothers!"

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12

Diamond Rio: In God We Still Trust -

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan

Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
