No More SPAM!!!!

Pass this info on to anyone you know that complains of spam!!!


Advice from Snopes.com

1) Any time you see an E-Mail that saysforward this on to "10" of your friends, sign this petition, or you'll get bad luck, good luck, or whatever, it almost always has an E-Mail tracker program attached that tracks the cookies and E-Mails of those folks you forward to. The host sender is getting a copy each time it gets forwarded and then is able to get lists of "active" E-Mails to use in SPAM E-Mails, or sell to other spammers.


2) Almost all E-Mails that ask you to add your name and forward on to others are similar to that mass letter years ago that asked people to send business cards to the little kid in Florida who wanted to break the Guinness Book of Records for the most cards. All it was, and all any of this type of E-Mail is, a way to get names and "cookie" tracking information for telemarketers and spammers - - to validate active E-Mail accounts for their own profitable purposes.

You can do your friends and family members a GREAT favor by sending this information to them; you will be providing a service to your friends, and will be rewarded by not getting thousands of spam E-Mails in the future!

If you have been sending out (FORWARDING) the above kinds of E-Mail, now you know why you get so muchSPAM!

Do yourself a favor and STOP adding your name(s) to those types of listingsregardless how inviting they might sound!

You may think you are supporting a GREAT cause, but you are NOT in the long run. Instead, you will be getting tons of junk mail later! Plus, we are helping the spammers get rich! Let's don't make it easy for them!

Also: E-Mail petitions are NOT acceptable to Congress or any other organization To be acceptable, petitions must have a signed signature and full address of the person signing the petition.

Citizenship

Citizenship is something many of us take for granted. Today I was witness to 40 people from all over the world become American Citizens. My friend, Dina, took the oath among them. Dina is from Iraq and has been married to an American and living here for 4 years. She has been waiting and waiting for this day!!! Her husband, former USA army and now contractor, is working in Iraq now. They have a 3yr old daughter, Dania and are expecting twins in Dec/Jan. My friend, Missy watched all 6 of our collected children today so I could go be with Dina on this very special day. Here is a picture of me with Dina and her friend Erica.




There are more pictures on the NEW Saucer Family website link.
