November is National Diabetes Month.  My father was a child-onset diabetic since the early age of 6.  
   He was lucky to be born in the age of insulin.  Diabetes was a death sentence before insulin discovery.   When Daddy was 17, WWII broke out and at 18, he ran away from home to join the war.  His plan was to take insulin with him and give it to himself in secret so the Navy would never know.  Riiiight.  I know that sounds dumb but he was 18 and if you remember, everything is possible at 18.  My Grandpa had a cafe in Little Rock, Ark and it was a police hangout where Grandpa gave them free coffee and donuts.    So when Grandpa's son ran away, they all pitched in to find him.  The police combed all around and finally found Daddy hiding in a green pepper field.   He was hungry so there he was eating green peppers just outside Little Rock. He was promptly returned to a grateful Grandpa.  
My Dad belonged to the Greatest Generation and was every bit that to me.

Ransomware: Why This New Malware is So Dangerous and How to Protect Yourself

Not all .gov links are from the government--they are spammers!  Before you go to any link that arrives in your mailbox, hover your cursor over it, and look at the status bar at the bottom of your browser--it will show you the REAL
web address to which the link will go.


If you get this ransom virus, you can get it off, but it is very difficult to decrypt the encrypted files that it encrypts... There are several companies who claim they can decrypt those encrypted files with their "free" download routine, but if you need their assistance I was told by one company rep that it might cost you $200-$250 to get it done. That was

Files targeted are those commonly found on most PCs today; a list of file extensions for targeted files include:
3fr, accdb, ai, arw, bay, cdr, cer, cr2, crt, crw, dbf, dcr, der, dng, doc, docm, docx, dwg, dxf, dxg, eps, erf, indd, jpe, jpg, kdc, mdb, mdf, mef, mrw, nef, nrw, odb, odm, odp, ods, odt, orf, p12, p7b, p7c, pdd, pef, pem, pfx, ppt, pptm, pptx, psd, pst, ptx, r3d, raf, raw, rtf, rw2, rwl, srf, srw, wb2, wpd, wps, xlk, xls, xlsb, xlsm, xlsx

The best thing you can do is not open any attachments from people you do not know. Don't open FedEx or UPS type emails with attachments on them. Don't go to porn sites which are often loaded with virus's just waiting for you to visit them. Back up your data to an external hard drive and keep it disconnected from the PC when not needed. When backing up to it, shut down your  internet connection. External USB connected hard drives are not expensive and a good way to back up your personal data. Do not have your external hard drive turned on while surfing the internet. I hope you never get this virus, because about the only way you can restore it is from an uninfected external hard drive, DVD's with your files on them, or the "cloud". If you do get infected and decide to pay the ransom, there is no guarantee that the crook will give you the key after you pay the money. Reports are that they often do not and then you are really in a jamb because you have to have the key to unlock the encryption. Below is a lot more information about this ransom virus... Ray

CryptoLocker, detected by Sophos as Troj/Ransom-ACP, is a malicious program known as ransomware.

More information on CryptoLocker. It is NOT a hoax....

Non-bleach mildew remover
Dark patches of mold can creep up on the walls of your bathroom, especially if you don't have a strong fan sucking out the steam created by daily baths and showers. You can get rid of it with strong bleach or other harsh disinfectants, but those products can take away the paint along with the mold! Here's how to get rid of the black in the corners of your bathroom: Add one cup of lemon juice and one cup of table salt to one gallon of hot water. Mix well (the salt does not have to dissolve completely). Use this solution to wipe the moldy and/or mildewed areas thoroughly. Wipe completely dry with a clean cloth.

 I LOVE Roses and plant them wherever I live!!!! I'll be doing this! Did you know that you can grow roses from cuttings? Simply cut healthy stems, place them in large potatoes, and them bury them 3-4 inches deep in a healthy soil mixture of peet moss and top soil. The potatoes keep the stems moist and help develop the root systems. It's a perfectly simple way to multiply your rose garden without spending lots of $$$.

Keeping Dirt Out of Your Heating Ducts
If you have your heating ducts that are on the floors they often become a place for whatever falls on the floor, hair, small toys, dirt, dust and such. Here is a cheap way to stop the mess on your floor from getting into the duct work, buy fabric softener dryer sheets. At home lift the grates out and fit them to the underside of the grates then put it back in place. This not only keeps your duct work clean it is also a cheap way to freshen up the room with the scent from the dryer sheets. Remember to change the dryer sheets every 2 weeks.

Baking soda - Is it still good?
Getting ready to do some baking, and wondering if your baking soda is still good? To find out, toss a spoonful of baking soda into a bowl and add a splash of vinegar. If the mixture fizzes heavily, the baking soda is still good. If it doesn't, use the rest of the box for cleaning, and yes you need a new box.   Similar way with baking powder--to see if it's still good, drop a spoonful into a glass of water--if it bubbles, it's fine.   If not, a trip to the grocer is in order.

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

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

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
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!'

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