Thank You for the Email!


I want to thank all of you who have taken the time and trouble to send me your damn chain letters over the past few years. Yes, thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of what's left of my heart for making me feel safe, secure, blessed, and wealthy.

Because of your concern...I no longer can drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains.

I no longer drink anything out of a can because I will get sick from the rat feces and urine.

I no longer use Saran wrap in the microwave because it causes cancer.

I no longer check the coin return on pay phones because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS.

I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day

I no longer use margarine because it's one molecule away from being plastic.

I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.

I no longer receive packages from UPS or FedEx since they are actually Al Qaeda in disguise.

I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a stupid number for which I will get the phone bill from hell with calls to Jamaica, Uganda, Singapore, and Zebekistan.

I no longer eat KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes or feathers.

I no longer date the opposite sex because they will take my kidneys and leave me taking a nap in a bathtub full of ice.

I no longer buy expensive cookies from Neiman Marcus since I now have their recipe.

I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking out for me.

Thanks to you, I have learned that God only answers my prayers if I forward an email to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes. (Hmmm, the QURAN did not mention it works that way!)

I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl who is about to die in the hospital (for the 1,387,258th time).

I no longer have any money at all, but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special e-mail program.

Yes, I want to thank all of you soooooooo much for looking out for me!

I will now return the favor.

If you don't e-mail this post to at least 1200 people in the next 60 seconds, a large bird with diarrhea will crap on your head at 5:00PM this afternoon and the fleas of a thousand camels will infest your armpits.

I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of my next door neighbor's ex-mother-in-law's 8th husband's 2nd cousin's 3rd husband's ex-wife's mother's beautician!

Ain't spam great?!?!?

Ways To Younger Looking Skin...

No sooner are you over teenage blemishes and blotches that it seems you’re worrying about wrinkles and lines. But this needn’t be the case. You’re never too young – or too old – to start fighting the first signs of ageing, so start implementing these lifestyle changes today, and you’ll be on your way to looking younger tomorrow.

1. Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day
Why? Studies suggest that in some cases, a shocking 90 per cent of the signs of ageing can be attributed to sun damage. UVB rays will burn our skin, but UVA rays, which can penetrate all year round, whatever the weather, can lead to lines, wrinkles, age spots, and dry and thinning skin. For daily protection against both types of rays, it’s important to apply a sunscreen that’s labelled “broad spectrum”.

2. Quit smoking
Why? Apart from the negative effects that smoking has on our overall health, every time we inhale cigarette smoke, we crinkle our eyes and purse our lips, accelerating the development of crow’s-feet and upper-lip lines. Also try to avoid smoky rooms, which can load the skin with harmful toxins.

3. Drink lots of water
Why? Water doesn’t directly hydrate our skin cells, but if the brain, heart and lungs are dehydrated, they will rob the skin’s moisture supply. Made up of 80 per cent water, the skin cells need to be constantly topped up in order to stay plump and healthy, and keep lines and wrinkles at bay.

4. Cut down on junk food, caffeine and alcohol
Why? Processed foods, caffeinated drinks and cocktails all burden the body with toxins. Try to curb your intake of these, and incorporate more fresh juices and water into your diet, as well as antioxidant-rich foods like fruit and vegetables, nuts, seeds, fish and cereals.

5. Cleanse and exfoliate your skin regularly
Why? A thorough cleansing routine – particularly at night before bed – is essential to remove the day’s build-up of toxins. Exfoliating twice a week will also help to speed up cell renewal, which occurs naturally every two to three weeks in young women but can take up to twice as long as we get older. Deep cleansing masks, such as a mud mask, will give your skin a thorough cleanse.

6. Don’t skimp on sleep
Why? No matter how much we protect our skin during the day, we’re inevitably exposed to a certain level of environmental damage, so it’s essential to give the skin an opportunity to repair itself at night. This happens most effectively while we sleep, so try to get about eight hours a night. In addition, apply a nourishing night cream.

Hindu Baby Names And Their Meanings

 Hindu people take naming their children very seriously. They give their children names that will guide them to live a life of morality. The name is often reminiscent of divine qualities. Hindus often name their children after holy people, sages, saints, and even use the names of God and the Gods.

Many people are looking for exotic and unique names for their babies today. Tired of the same old names like William and Mary, some are looking towards Hindu names to find one for their baby that will make them stand out as an individual.

Boy Names
Each Hindu name has a meaning and most parents look at the meaning as well as the name itself. If you are looking for a strong, powerful name for your son, consider these:-
    Jayin (Conqueror)
    Nayakan (Hero)
    Nirek (Superior)
    Ojayit (Courageous)
    Paranjoy (Conqueror of Life)
    Paramjit (Heroic)
    Ranjiv (Victorious)
    Sabal (With strength)
    Sahasya (Mighty)
    Savir (Leader)

Many male Hindu names have royal connotations such as:-
    Adhiraj(King)
    Akhilesh (Lord & master)
    Bhupal(King)
    Birendra (King of warriors)
    Hemen(The King of gold)
    Hiresh (King of precious stones)
    Iravan (King of ocean)
    Kanvar (Prince)

There are other beautiful male Hindu names to choose from with many meaningful translations including Aashish (Blessing), Bijoy (Full of joy), Chiman (Curious), Deep (Light), Ekagrah (Focused), Gandhik (Fragrance), Hardik (Full of love), Jawahar (Gem), Mitrajit (Friendly), Navrang (Colorful), Paran (Life), Rasul (Angel), Sadhil (Perfect), Tuhin (Snowy), Umang (Desire), Vatsa (Son), and Yamir (Moon).

Girl Names
Baby girl Hindu names are equally if not more beautiful than the boy names. Many names have gem and flower meanings such as:-
    Prithika (Flower)
    Reena (Gem)
    Samali (Bouquet)
    Taj (Crown/Jewel)
    Vainavi (Gold)
    Vanalika (Sunflower)

There are also many names with celestial meanings such as:-
    Anamitra (The sun)
    Arundhati (Star)
    Bhumika (Earth)
    Bhuvi (Heaven)
    Chandrika (Moon)
    Dhara (Earth)
    Indulekha (Moon)

Of course, there are many more beautiful names to choose from including Alpana (Beautiful), Bimala (Pure), Chahna (Love), Devanshi (Divine), Fulki (Spark), Grishma (Warmth), Ipsita (Desire), Kala (Art), Lalima (Beauty), Mitali (Friendly), Nirali (Different), Panchali (Princess), Sarayu (Wind), Usha (Dawn), and Venya (Lovable).

For both boys and girls alike, there are many names with god and goddess meanings such as Ambika (Goddess Parvati), Bhaumi (Goddess Sita), Banke (Lord Krishna), Devkumar (Son of God), Hemavati (Goddess Parvati), Hiranya (Lord Vishnu), Lakshmi (Goddess of Wealth), Nadiy (Holy place), Narayan (Lord Vishnu), Parvati (Goddess), Rishi (Sage), and Sara (Goddess of Sound).

As you can see, there are many stylish and exquisite Hindu baby names from which to choose. If you are not Hindu though, you may want to check with someone who is for the exact pronunciation of a name.

Credit Cards And Personal Budgeting

When you apply for and receive a credit card, you will want to take the time to create a detailed budget for your family’s finances. Without a budget, and without carefully planning the credit card expenses, you could fall into the credit trap that many individuals have found themselves in. Swimming in a sea of debt that they have no way of getting out of. Having a credit card is a wonderful way to ensure that you have access to funds in the event of an emergency, or for use when traveling to eliminate the need for carrying cash on your person. As long as you keep the card for the purposes outlined in your personal budget, you will have no difficulty maintaining your credit card balance, making payments on time and using the credit card to it’s fullest financial capacity. If you start using the credit card as if it was your personal debit card, you will likely find yourself in financial trouble. 

Personal Budgeting Tips and Tricks
First, and most importantly, never spend more money than you can actually afford. This is easier said than done of course, especially when you include credit cards in the equation. It’s very easy to buy now, with the intent of paying later, only to find out when later comes you still don’t have the money! Using credit cards wisely however, can save you finance charges and enable you to make purchases and build your credit by making monthly payments in full and on time.


If you already have a credit card (or two) with balances, you should consider shopping around for credit cards that are offering promotional rates. Many companies will periodically offer a 0% balance transfer rate for all new customers who apply for and obtain their credit cards. Transferring what you owe from one card to another can help you save on interest and help you pay down your debt faster. This is a smart way to use credit cards!

Understand your credit card limit. Just because your credit card has a limit of $5,000 does not mean that you should spend that all at once! Ideally, a credit card should be used with the intent of the individual paying the balance in full at the end of each month. This will avoid finance fees, interest charges and allow you to make purchases on your credit card that are the same as paying with cash. As soon as you allow a balance to carry over from one month to the next, you are going to start seeing your account balance increase, instead of decreasing with your payments, thanks to high interest rates and finance charges on purchases.

When determining how much money you have available for purchases, you should first make a list of all of your outgoing expenses each month. Be sure to plan for incidentals and things that don’t occur regularly- such as oil changes and car tune-ups. Also, consider your personal savings a monthly expense. (Just because you don’t pay them monthly doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plan for them monthly!) Then, determine your monthly income. Subtract your expenses from your income to see what you have left over, and this should be your flexible spending amount in your budget. Even if you have access to a credit card, you should never spend more on a purchase than this “flexible” money. This will keep you from getting into serious financial trouble. 

When you take the time to create a budget and follow it you are a responsible credit card user who will likely not end up swallowed by the dreaded debt monster!

HUSBAND STORE

I like this! I know many have seen it but I like it to be here today... :D


WELCOME TO THE HUSBAND STORE:
A store that sells husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband.

Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:-
  • You may visit the store ONLY ONCE!
  • There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights.
  • There is, however, a catch...you may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband...

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1: These men have jobs and love the Lord.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2: These men have jobs, love the Lord, and love kids.

The third floor sign reads:


Floor 3: These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids and are extremely
good looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:

Floor 4: These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead good
looking and help with the housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"


Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:


Floor 5: These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead
gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign
reads:

Floor 6: You are visitor 4,363,012 to this floor. There are no men on this
floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.

Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store. Watch your step as you exit
the building, and have a nice day!

Facts you should know...


Why is the sky blue? Scientists offer 10 basic questions to test your knowledge.

Think you know you know your science? Recently, several science gurus - Nobel Prize winners, institute heads, teachers and others who spend most of their time thinking about science - were asked, "What is one science question every high school graduate should be able to answer?"

1. What percentage of the earth is covered by water?

2. What sorts of signals does the brain use to communicate sensations, thoughts and actions?

3. Did dinosaurs and humans ever exist at the same time?

4. What is Darwin’s theory of the origin of species?

5. Why does a year consist of 365 days, and a day of 24 hours?

6. Why is the sky blue?

7. What causes a rainbow?

8. What is it that makes diseases caused by viruses and bacteria hard to treat?

9. How old are the oldest fossils on earth?

10. Why do we put salt on sidewalks when it snows?

Extra credit: What makes the seasons change?


Answers:
1. About 71 percent of the earth's surface is covered by water.

2. The single cells in the brain communicate through electrical and chemical signals.

3. No. Dinosaurs went extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period, 65 million years ago. Modern humans did not appear until around 200,000 years ago.

4. Darwin's theory of species origination says that natural selection chooses organisms that possess variable and heritable traits and that are best suited for their environments.

5. A year, 365 days, is the time it takes for the earth to travel around the sun. A day, 24 hours, is the time it takes for the earth to spin around once on its axis.

6. Solar radiation sunlight is scattered across the atmosphere by a process called diffused sky radiation. The sky is blue because much more short-wave radiation -- blue light -- is scattered across the sky than long-wave radiation -- red light.

7. Rainbows can be seen when there are water droplets in the air and the sun is shining. Sunlight, which contains all colors, is refracted, or bent, off the droplets at different angles, splitting into its different colors of red, yellow, blue, etc.

8. Influenza viruses and others continually change over time, usually by mutation. This change enables the virus to evade the immune system of its host so that people are susceptible to influenza virus infection throughout their lives. Bacteria mutate in the same way and can also become resistant if overtreated with antibiotics.

9. About 3.8 billion years; they're bacteria-like organisms.

10. Adding salt to snow or ice increases the number of molecules on the ground surface and makes it harder for the water to freeze. Salt can lower freezing temperatures on sidewalks to 15 degrees from 32 degrees.

Extra credit: Seasons occur because the earth is tilted at an angle of 23.5 degrees. At certain times of year the top half of the earth leans to the sun and therefore gets more sun and has summer. When that same half of the earth leans away from the sun it gets less light and has winter.

How Was I Born?


Daddy, How Was I Born?

A little boy goes to his father and asks "Daddy, how was I born?"

The father answers: "Well son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cybercafé. We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the DELETE button, nine months later a blessed little Pop-Up appeared and said: You've Got Male!"

Misconceptions to exercise and nutrition


Below are some common misconceptions among people with regard to exercise and nutrition.

1. You need to exercise to burn fat.
The truth is you don’t gain body fat because of a lack of exercise. You gain it because your blood sugar levels exceed what you are using. Basically, you are eating too many calories at one time.

2. Your metabolism slows down once you hit 30.
WRONG! Actually, hundreds of research studies have shown that the slow down in metabolism is due to a loss of muscle tissue. And the loss of muscle tissue is directly related to a lack of hard physical activity!

3. Pasta and bread are fattening.
Anything is fattening! Lettuce can be stored as fat! Any food or drink, which contains calories, can be stored as body fat if it causes your blood sugar levels to exceed what the body needs at that time. Bread and pasta are actually great sources of complex carbohydrate! The key is how much you eat and when you eat it.

4. Eating after 7pm will make you fat.
Absolutely false! It all depends on whether or not the body needs that amount of calories at that time. Keep in mind your body is constantly burning calories, 24 hours per day, just the amount varies.

5. Strength training will make you bulk up.
Another NO! It seems as if mostly women are concerned with this one. Muscle size is primarily affected by genetics and hormone production; therefore, most women don’t have the potential to build very large muscles.

Muscle burns calories, so the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn which makes easier to burn fat and harder to gain it!
