Sharing E-mails - Informative


This is just what the title says, "Sharing E-mails". I get quite a few e-mails that are really good, heart-felt, touching and/or informative. So, I thought this would be a great place to share them. I'd like anyone and everyone else to post theirs, too. I just don't want any that relate to pornography, violence or any other distasteful content. I've started out with the original page and now I'm adding on as needed. Please post your username with the e-mail you submit.
[Please add your e-mail at the bottom of the page under:]


Thank you for sharing! *hugs to all*

                 ~~~Interesting - WD-40~~~

Water Displacement #40. The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. Its name comes from the project that was to find a "water displacement" compound. They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40. The Corvair Company bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile parts.

Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you.

When you read the "shower door" part, try it. It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works just as well as glass. It's a miracle! Then try it on your stovetop... Voila! It's now shinier than it's ever been. You'll be amazed.

Here are some of the uses:

1) Protects silver from tarnishing.
2) Removes road tar and grime from cars.
3) Cleans and lubricates guitar strings.
4) Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making it slippery.
5) Keeps flies off cows
6) Restores and cleans chalkboards.
7) Removes lipstick stains.
8) Loosens stubborn zippers.
9) Untangles jewelry chains.
10) Removes stains from stainless steel sinks.
11) Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill.
12) Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden pots from oxidizing.
13) Removes tomato stains from clothing.
14) Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots.
15) Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors.
16) Keeps scissors working smoothly.
17) Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes
18) It removes black scuff marks from the kitchen floor! Use WD-40
for those nasty tar and scuff marks on flooring. It doesn't seem to harm
the finish and you won't have to scrub nearly as hardto get them off.
Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of marks.
19) Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly! Use WD-40!
20) Gives a children's play gym slide a shine for a super fast slide.
21) Lubricates gear shift and mower deck lever for ease of handling on riding mowers.
22) Rids kids rocking chairs and swings of squeaky noises.
23) Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows and makes them easier to open.
24) Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open and close.
25) Restores and cleans padded leather dashboards in vehicles, as well as vinyl bumpers.
26) Restores and cleans roof racks on vehicles.
27) Lubricates and stops squeaks in electric fans.
28) Lubricates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons, and bicycles for easy handling.
29) Lubricates fan belts on washers and dryers and keeps them running smoothly.
30) Keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades, and other tools.
31) Removes splattered grease on stove.
32) Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging.
33) Lubricates prosthetic limbs.
34) Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell).
35) Removes all traces of duct tape.
36) Folks even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees to relieve arthritis pain.
37) Florida's favorite use is: "cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers."
38) The favorite use in the state of New YorkWD-40 protects the
Statue of Liberty from the elements.
39) WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a LITTLE on live bait or lures and you will be
catching the big one in no time. Also, it's a lot cheaper than the chemical
attractants that are made for just that purpose. Keep in mind though,using
some chemical laced baits or lures for fishing are not allowed in some states.
40) Use it for fire ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch.
41) WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and
wipe with a clean rag.
42) Also, if you've discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and
dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate the lipstick spots with
WD-40 and re-wash. Presto! Lipstick is gone!
43) If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the moisture
and allow the car to start.

P. S. The basic ingredient is FISH OIL.

Things you never knew your cell phone could do.

There are a few things that can be done in times
of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can
actually be a life saver or an emergency tool
for survival. Check out the things that you
can do with it:

FIRST Subject: Emergency

The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112.
If you find yourself out of the coverage area of
your mobile; network and there is an emergency,
dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing
network to establish the emergency number for
you, and interestingly this number 112 can be
dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.

SECOND Subject: Have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keyless entry?
This may come in handy someday. Good reason to
own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the
car and the spare keys are at home, call someone
at home on their cell phone from your cell phone.
Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car
door and have the person at your home press the
unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone
on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone
from having to drive your keys to you. Distance
is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away,
and if you can reach someone who has the other
"remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors
(or the trunk). Editor's Note: It works fine!
We tried it out and it unlocked our car over
a cell phone!"

THIRD Subject: Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate,
press the keys *3370# your cell will restart with
this reserve and the instrument will show
a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will
get charged when you charge your cell next time.

FOURTH Subject: How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone's serial number,
key in the following digits on your phone:
* # 0 6 #
A 15 digit code will appear on the screen.
This number is unique to your handset. Write it
down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone
gets stolen, you can phone your service provider
and give them this code. They will then be
able to block your handset so even if the thief
changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally
useless. You probably won't get your phone back,
but at least you know that whoever stole it
can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this,
there would be no point in people stealing mobile
phones. And Finally....

FIFTH Subject: 411 information.

Cell phone companies are charging us $1.00 to
$1.75 or more for 411 information calls when
they don't have to. Most of us do not carry
a telephone directory in our vehicle, which
makes this situation even more of a problem.
When you need to use the 411 information option,
simply dial: (800) FREE 411, or (800) 373-3411
without incurring any charge at all. Program
this into your cell phone now.

and it will be gone in two days.

#3.  To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the
   toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one hour,
 then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes

Women: Heart Attack Signs; What To Do

Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line...
You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea & intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up...
The pain in the jaw happens to many & awakes them from a sound sleep. Some may be a fortunate ones. Trust them since they tell you its pain unlike anything they've ever experienced before...

Given a choice between natural child birth & a heart attack, pain-wise ~ it's much easier to have a baby..!!

Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive...

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 others ~ you can be sure that we'll save at least one life. Read this...

It could save your life!!!

Let's say it's 6:15 PM and you're driving home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You're tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.

Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest..!!

A breath & a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs plus coughing movements squeeze the heart & keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital. Tell as many
other people as possible about this. It could save their lives..!! "

& SEND this ARTICLE  to ALL your FRIENDs that
U really CARE ABOUT...!!!

   Just something to consider next time you go shopping for lipstick. This comes from someone who works in the breast cancer unit at Mt. Sinai Hospital, in Toronto .

From: Dr. Nahid Neman
If there is a female you care anything about, share this with her. I did! I am also sharing this with the males on my email list, because they need to tell the females THEY care about as well!

Recently a lipstick brand called "Red Earth" decreased their prices from $67 to $9.90. It contained lead. Lead is a chemical which causes cancer.

The lipstick brands that contain lead are:

Y.S.L. (Yves Saint Laurean)
RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)

The higher the lead content, the greater the chance of causing cancer.

After doing a test on lipsticks, it was found that the Y.S.L. lipstick contained the most amount of lead. Watch out for those lipsticks which are supposed to stay longer. If your lipstick stays longer, it is because of the higher content of lead.

Here is the test you can do yourself:

1. Put some lipstick on your hand.
2. Use a gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.
3. If the lipstick color changes to black, then you know the lipstick contains lead.

Please pass this information on to all your girlfriends, wives and female family members.

This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical
Center. Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer, especially breast cancer.

"Where Are Your Car Keys?"

   Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.

   This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator.

   Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key chain.

   It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break in your house, odds are the burglar or rapist won't stick around... after a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that.

   ...And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there.

   This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

This has been verified by the FBI (Their link is also included below). Please pass this on to everyone in your email address book. It is spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call. Most of us take those summons for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty, that a new and ominous kind of scam has surfaced. The caller claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo, your identity just got stolen. The scam has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma. This (scam) is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully people into giving information by pretending they're with the court system. The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud.

[Alert]: Raisins Toxic To Dogs
If you have a dog... read this and PLEASE pass this on to other dog owners...

Written by:
Laurinda Morris, DVM
Danville Veterinary Clinic
Danville , Ohio

   This week I had the first case in history of raisin toxicity ever seen at MedVet. My patient was a 56-pound, 5 yr old male neutered lab mix that ate half a canister of raisins sometime between 7:30 AM and 4:30 PM on Tuesday. He started with vomiting, diarrhea and shaking about 1AM on Wednesday, but the owner didn't call my emergency service until 7AM.

   I had heard somewhere about raisins AND grapes causing acute Renal failure, but hadn't seen any formal paper on the subject. We had her bring the dog in immediately. In the meantime, I called the ER service at MedVet, and the doctor there was like me - had heard something about it, but....

   Anyway, we contacted the ASPCA National Animal Poison Control Center and they said to give IV fluids at 1 ½ times maintenance and watch the kidney values for the next 48-72 hours. The dog's BUN (blood urea nitrogen level) was already at 32 (normal less than 27) and creatinine over 5 (1.9 is the high end of normal). Both are monitors of kidney function in the bloodstream. We placed an IV catheter and started the fluids. Rechecked the renal values at 5 PM and the BUN was over 40 and creatinine over 7 with no urine production after a liter of fluids. At the point I felt the dog was in acute renal failure and sent him on to MedVet for a urinary catheter to monitor urine output overnight as well as overnight care.

   He started vomiting again overnight at MedVet and his renal values have continued to increase daily. He produced urine when given lasix as a diuretic. He was on 3 different anti-vomiting medications and they still couldn't control his vomiting. Today his urine output decreased again, his BUN was over 120, his creatinine was at 10, his phosphorus was very elevated and his blood pressure, which had been staying around 150, skyrocketed to 220. He continued to vomit and the owners elected to euthanize.

   This is a very sad case - great dog, great owners who had no idea raisins could be a toxin. Please alert everyone you know who has a dog of this very serious risk. Poison control said as few as 7 raisins or grapes could be toxic. Many people I know give their dogs grapes or raisins as treats including our ex-handler's. Any exposure should give rise to immediate concern.

...Even if you don't have a dog, you might have friends who do. This is worth passing on to them.

2007-07-12 [Sunrose]: In reply to where to keep your carkeys: If you're out late you can also divide your keys between your fingers outwards, if someone would attack you you could use that to defend yourself.

2007-07-12 [Artsieladie]: Smart lady! Yup! I remind my daughter to do this, especially if she feels she could be in a precarious situation or heading for one. <img:stuff/ThumbsUp_Wh_Mood.gif><img:stuff/cheshmak.gif>

2007-07-31 [Sunrose]: My sister always said to call out 'FIRE', because people love watching fires...but no one wants to get hurt trying to help you when you call out for 'HELP'.. :P
Also, which was something from the Oprah show (XD), to not let anyone take you to a new place.
I can't say what I'd do, but thinking about it I might prefer to fight for life than let some guy touch me in any way >_>
But should also note that most assaults happen during day time by someone the victim knows, which is actually more scary. It's statistically more dangerous to let your cousin drive you home during the day than it would be cycling home by yourself during the evening O_o

2007-08-01 [Artsieladie]: Exactly! If you holler 'help', no one wants to get involved. Holler 'fire' & everyone comes to see. The same with a car accident. Everyone wants to see it. Not I. It's bad enough when the tragedies are on the news. When I dated, I always drove myself. I like to be able to come & go as I please, not on someone's else's terms nor to have to be in a situation where I'd have to rely on a ride from someone I would possibly discover I'd rather not be alone with...anywhere. I don't think I'd just accept any violation, either. The trouble is, the more you put up a fight, the more the perp is turned on. I think I'd try to gauge the situation & possibly wait for an opportunity to make him hurt like he's never hurt before & then give it all I had. All in all, it's really tough to know what you'd do until faced with the situation. It is scary. I trust VERY few men, regardless of who they are. Before my daughter was driving, she did a lot of walking & I used to worry, b/c a back road is a perfect place to do the unspeakable. I always insisted she carry her cell phone & to call someone IMMEDIATELY even if a car just slowed down to stop. Another thing I told her was the same as my Mom told me, go to the nearest house & make it look like you live there of if they ask to give her a ride to say, "No thank you, b/c my house is right here." Such an ugly side of the world, I guess. :P
