Important Info on E-Mail Tracker Programs and Great Tips To Reduce Junk Mail

I received this email today and thought it was good enough to share...
check this out!

I REALLY dislike being threatened by an email which TELLS me I HAVE to sent it on..Now I know what is happening!  WOW!!!    If I send it at all I send it BCC..which i hope does not give email you should also.  No one likes to receive a forward with a page-long list of everyone in the world who has sent it, received it, forwarded it!  Let's see if this stops the 'threatening' ones which make us feel guilty for NOT sending it on....

E-Mail Tracker Programs --

The man that sent this information is a computer tech. He spends a lot of time clearing the junk off computers for people and listens to complaints about speed. All forwards are not bad, just some. Be sure you read the very last paragraph.
He wrote:
By now, I suspect everyone is familiar with snopes.comand/or for determining whether information received via email is just that: true/false or fact/fiction.
Both are excellent sites.
Advice from VERY IMPORTANT!!
1) Any time you see an email that says "forward this on to '10' (or however many) of your friends", "sign this petition", or "you'll get bad luck" or "you'll get good luck" or "you'll see something funny on your screen after you send it" or whatever --- it almost always has an email tracker program attached
that tracks the cookies and emails 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' email addresses to use in SPAM emails or sell to other spammers. Even when you get emails that demand you send the email on if you're not ashamed of God/Jesus --- that is email tracking, and they are playing on our conscience. These people don't care how they get your email addresses - just as long as they get them. Also, emails that talk about a
missing child or a child with an incurable disease "how would you feel if that was your child" --- email tracking. Ignore them and don't participate!
2) Almost all emails 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 email is, is a way to get names and 'cookie' tracking information for telemarketers and spammers-- to validate active email 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 you will be rewarded by not getting thousands of spam emails in the future! Do yourself a favor and STOP adding your
name(s) to those types of listing regardless how inviting they might sound! Or make you feel guilty if you don't! It's all about getting email addresses and nothing more. You may think you are supporting a GREAT
cause, but you are NOT! Instead, you will be getting tons of junk mail later and very possibly a virus attached! Plus, we are helping the spammers get rich! Let's not make it easy for them!
ALSO: Email petitions are NOT acceptable to Congress or any other organization - i.e. social security, etc. To be acceptable, petitions must have a "signed signature" and full address of the person signing the petition, so this is a waste of time and you are just helping the email trackers.
Tips for Handling Telemarketers Three Little Words That Work!!
(1)The three little words are: 'Hold On, Please...'
Saying this, while putting down your phone and walking off (instead of hanging-up immediately) would make each telemarketing call so much more time-consuming that boiler room sales would grind to a halt. Then when you eventually hear the phone company's 'beep-beep-beep' tone, you know it's time to go back and hang up your handset, which has efficiently completed its task. These three little words will help eliminate telephone soliciting..
(2) Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the
other end? This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone calls and records the time of day when a person answers the phone. This technique is used to determine the best time of day for a 'real' sales person to call back and get someone at home. What you can do after answering, if you notice there is no one there, is to immediately start hitting your # button on the phone, 6 or 7 times as
quickly as possible. This confuses the machine that dialed the call, and it kicks your number out of their system. Gosh, what a shame not to have your name in their system any longer!!!
(3) Junk Mail Help: When you get 'ads' enclosed with your phone or utility bill, return these 'ads' with your payment. Let the sending companies throw their own junk mail away. When you get those 'preapproved' letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do not throw away the return envelope. Most of these come with postage-paid return envelopes, right? It costs them more than the regular 44 cents postage, 'IF' and when they receive them back. It costs them nothing if you throw them away! The postage was around 50 cents before the last\ increase and it is according to the weight. In that case, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little, postage-paid return envelopes. 
One of Andy Rooney 's (60 minutes) ideas.
Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express. Send a pizza coupon to Citibank. If you didn't get anything else that day, then just send them their blank application back!If you want to remain
anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on anything you send them. You can even send the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep them guessing! It still costs them 44 cents. The banks and credit card companies are currently getting a lot of their own junk back in the mail, but folks, we need to OVERWHELM them. Let's let them know what it's like to get lots of junk mail, and best of all they're paying for it...Twice! Let's help keep our postal service busy since they are saying that e-mail is cutting into their business profits, and that's why they need to increase postage costs again. You get the idea! If enough people follow these tips, it will work ---- I have been doing this for years, and I get very little
junk mail anymore.

Is Using Dispersants on the BP Gulf Oil Spill Fighting Pollution with Pollution?

Is Using Dispersants on the BP Gulf Oil Spill Fighting Pollution with Pollution?

It remains unclear what impact chemical dispersants will have on sea life--and only the massive, uncontrolled experiment being run in the Gulf of Mexico will tell

How about, bottom line & supply respirators for workers!! 
Please learn from one man's experience and
 do not end this spill cleanup with 
workers as BP's Collateral Damaged.
One man's letter:

His letter to Gulf residents.

The crude oil is toxic, and anyone who cleans the oily 
Gulf beaches needs to know the danger
Here's more:
My name is Merle Savage, a female general foreman during the Exxon Valdez oil spill (EVOS) beach cleanup in 1989. I am one of the 11,000+ cleanup workers, who is suffering from health issues from that toxic cleanup, without compensation from Exxon.

Dr. Riki Ott visited me in 2007 to explain about the toxic spraying on the beaches, and informed me that Exxon's medical records that surfaced in litigation by sick workers in 1994, had been sealed from the public, making it impossible to hold Exxon responsible for their actions.

Beach crews breathed in crude oil that splashed off the rocks and into the air -- the toxic exposure turned into chronic breathing conditions, central nervous system problems, neurological impairment, chronic respiratory disease, leukemia, lymphoma, brain tumors, liver damage, and blood disease.

My web site is devoted to searching for EVOS cleanup workers who were exposed to the toxic spraying, and are suffering from the same illnesses that I have. Our summer employment turned into a death sentence for many and a life

Mortal Instruments Author Cassandra Clare's Newest Nephilim Trilogy; Infernal Devices, Clockwork Angel Bk. 1 Review

 I for one, am a huge fan of Cassandra Clare. She's got a way of grabbing you by the innards and twisting until you scream for mercy. Her style of writing is just my type, and I adored her Mortal Instruments Trilogy. At it's end, I wanted, needed more, and thank our lucky stars, she's answered our prayers with a new trilogy; Infernal Devices, with book one being Clockwork Angel coming out this August (2010). WOO HOO!Here's part of a review of said title from the

Clockwork Angel Lights Fuse for Heart-stopping Infernal Devices Trilogy Book Review: Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, Book 1)
As The Mortal Instruments trilogy was wrapping things up, author Cassandra Clare assured readers that there were still more stories to tell set in her world of Nephilim Shadowhunters -- an angel-created race of demon hunters who also dispatch a few vampires, warlocks and other Downworlders who decide to make trouble rather than live under a somewhat shakey peace accord.
Set a century prior to the events of The Mortal Instruments, Clockwork Angel takes the reader away from New York to the London Institute, run by a young Shadowhunter couple, Henry and Charlotte.  The focus of the story is Tessa Gray -- a sixteen year old girl with nothing left to her name, arriving in London on a steamer at the behest of her brother. But no sooner than she lands, she is abducted by a pair of warlocks who have nefarious plans for the girl. As a by-product of a murder investigation, Tessa makes the acquaintance of the dashing Will Herondale, a Shadowhunter following up some magic-involved killings of mundanes in Whitechapel.
Clare has successfully bottled lightning for a second time, and while one book does not a trilogy make, if the current tone and pace is maintained readers should have no concerns at all that the remainder of The Infernal Devices is going to be just as much of a non-stop thrill ride as was The Mortal Instruments.

Creating and Adding a Custom Background Image to Your " Blogger " Blog

Ok, so all day I've been playing around with customizing my new blog;
Angels & Aromatherapy.
here's the link; 

...and having problems all day with the size of the background photo. It just wasn't fitting on the page was waaay too small and I couldn't keep the original size no matter how I uploaded it. ...
Everytime I'd upload the pic from my computer (I made the background picture with photoshop at 1,600px × 1,097px). and each time I uploaded the pic to photobucket to get a link to add to the template
the photo didn't retain its proper size and ended up smaller on the blog...well, 
I finally figured it out. 

First I went to another blog I made (this one! chroniclestruthandmusings) and posted the picture here. as you can see below:
after posting then I right clicked on the pic and opened it  in new tab to get the web address and used the little zoom spyglass that comes up to make it original size,,,
this is the address of my background pic now:

then, I went back to angelsandaromatherapy blog to the "page elements", added a new box of html:
 I pasted the below html into the newly added box of html and walla!

here's the newest version of the background image with St. Germain in the background:)

Inspirationally Beautiful ; Brian Gaynor's Fireflies Audition SYTYCD Season 7

So You Think You Can Dance is one of my favorite shows and last night during Vegas Week's Auditions we were gifted an inspirational audition. Brian Gaynor appeared in Season 3's auditions and wowed judges, but of course with his scoliosis could not be a part of the regular show. This season, Nigel promised Brian and his crew would be invited to perform a spot on Season 7 with his troupe. Cool!
This guy is so inspirational; you have to see his performance to Owl City's Fireflies
