Some people left their car in the long-term parking at San Jose while away, and someone broke into the car. Using the information on the car's registration in the glove compartment, they drove the car to the people's home in Pebble Beach and robbed it. So I guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should NOT leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote garage door opener. This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.

2. GPS:

Someone had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard. When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents. Something to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your home address in it. Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.


I never thought of this! This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her cell phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc., was stolen. Twenty minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says, "I received your text asking about our Pin number and I've replied a little while ago." When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text "hubby" in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.

Moral lesson:

a. Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc.

b. And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.

c. Also, when you're being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places to meet "family and friends" who text you.


A lady went grocery-shopping at a local mall and left her purse sitting in the children's seat of the cart while she reached something off a shelf/ Wait till you read the WHOLE story! Her wallet was stolen, and she reported it to the store personnel. After returning home, she received a phone call from the Mall Security to say that they had her wallet and that although there was no money in it, it did still hold her personal papers. She immediately went to pick up her wallet, only to be told by Mall Security that they had not called her. By the time she returned home again, her house had been broken into and burglarized. The thieves knew that by calling and saying they were Mall Security, they could lure her out of her house long enough for them to burglarize it.



Even if this does not pertain to you, please let your family and friends know so they don't get caught in a scam.

Herbs and Spices

Turmeric is the most anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, anticancer, antifungal so you should eat it as much as possible.

Turmeric's active ingredient is curcumin, an antioxidant that reduces inflammation and also gives it its yellow color. (don't get it on anything it stains.) It's been shown to reduce growth in cancer cells. Turmeric also contains other anti-inflammatory compounds that inhibit swelling and pain and block the plaques that cause Alzheimer's disease.

Add it to salad dressings, meat and fish marinades, or even turmericinfused tea, latte, or lemonade.

Cayenne is a source of antioxidants that fight free radicals and protect against cell damage. There are studies to observe whether cayenne inhibits cancer cell growth, but it's still to early.

Ginger is used to combat inflammation and pain, soothe sore muscles, and treat aches and fatigue. It's also a common remedy for digestion as it fights an overgrowth of bad gut bacteria. The compounds in ginger actually act in a similar way to anti-inflammatory drugs, like ibuprofen, that are used to treat arthritis. People might be able to find relief from ginger tea.
It's also great for sore throats, colds, you can apply it directly to a painful joint with a compress for relief through skin contact. Poorly stored ginger powder is at risk for mycotoxin contamination and fresh ginger can get moldy in the fridge. Buy fresh, and toss the stuff that's been around to long. If you buy the powdered (It won't be as potent), be sure to store it someplace away from heat, light, and moisture.

If you decide to cook with ginger and you're using oil, add it at the end of cooking because, cooked with fat, it can get a bitter taste. Also, if you like ginger with your sushi, go for the yellow variety. The pink stuff you see in some restaurants has been colored with an artificial dye. Both kinds have sugar, but the yellow stuff is preferable.

Cinnamon can lower blood sugar in people with diabetes. Cinnamon contains compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce the likelihood of cellular damage and chronic disease. It's been shown to protect against heart disease by preventing blood platelets from clumping and to inhibit abnormal cell growth.

Cloves are a great source of antioxidants that scavenge free radicals and help protect cells. They are also a powerful antifungal in the body, whether ingested or applied topically. Beware, though, clove oil is very strong. It's so strong it can be toxic if overused. I suggest using whole cloves.

Sage, too, has anti-inflammatory molecules. Sage is specifically thought to protect against inflammation-based neurological conditions, like Alzheimer's, and it shows promise for improving memory and concentration at the same time. Its compounds also have antioxidant and anticancer effects. Packed with camphor, its extracts can be used to kill bacteria and fungi, so it's a powerful spice when eaten, or used in a natural kitchen cleaning solution.

Rosemary contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds. increases the activity of an enzyme that removes free radicals associated with chronic inflammation. When the herb is cooked, add it liberally to vegetables, meats, and other cooked dishes. You can use it raw too, as the flavonoids in rosemary have been shown to inhibit the growth of pancreatic cancer cells and prevent hemorrhoids. If you're going to cook something in oil, add some rosemary and it will help prevent detrimental oxidation to the oil because rosmarinic acid is an antioxidant.
