Avoid F1 Key Per Snopes

Filed under: Misc — Freddie Keel @ 7:25 pm

For PC users….. Take Note!

Avoid F1 key
This is a new virus as of March 2010. Please pass this on to everyone on your list.
Rec’d this “heads up” this morning . . . good thing not to do. While browsing on the web, a notice is given to press your F1 key (that’s across top left of your keyboard, and usually means “Help”. Not this time. It will release a potent virus in your computer. . . if you don’t press F1, you will be reminded until you do. . …but just click on the little ‘x’ on the window, or close your browser totally – might even be better to reboot.

Click on the SNOPES link below for further confirmation of this threat.

Do NOT press the F1 key no matter how many times your computer asks you to.

Dryer Filters

Subject: Dryer filters
>  My dryer actually did catch fire a few years back and Sears had to

> Subject: Excellent Info on Clothes Dryers
>  Had a wonderful morning, until the heating unit went out on my dryer!
>  The repair man went in to the dryer and pulled out the lint filter. It
>  was clean. We always clean the lint from the filter after every load of>
>  clothes. He told us that he wanted to show us something.
>  He took the filter over to the sink, ran hot water over it. Now, the
> lint filter is made of a mesh material - I'm sure you know what your
> dryer's lint filter looks like.  WELL....the hot water just sat on top
> of the mesh!!! It didn't go through it at all!!!
>  He told us that dryer sheets cause a film over the mesh and that's what
> burns out the heating unit You can't SEE the film, but it's there. This
> is also what causes dryer units to catch fire and potentially burn your
> house down! He said the best way to keep your dryer working for a very
> long time (& to keep your electric bill lower) is to tak e that filter
> out & wash it with hot soapy water & an old toothbrush (or other brush)
> at least every six months.
>  He said that makes the life of the dryer at least twice as long! How
> about that???!!!! Learn something new everyday I certainly didn't know
> dryer sheets would do that. So, I thought I'd share!
>  Note: I went to my dryer & tested my screen by running water on it. The
> water ran thru a little bit but mostly collected all the water in the
> mesh screen.  I washed it with warm soapy water & a nylon brush & I had it
> done in 30 seconds. Then when I rinsed it and the water ran right thru
> the screen!
>  That repairman knew what he was talking about!

Mama and Clement – 05/25/2010

Filed under: Family,Hemphill Care Center — Freddie Keel @ 3:24 pm

Mama was in an especially good mood today at lunch.  I took my cap off and she put it on her head.

She and Clement from adjoining table were talking about the photos being used in a garden to keep the crows out.

Mama listening to Clement tell a story.

Mama and Clement talking about ‘old times’ before lunch.  Mama had received a letter (email) from  grand-daughter Kris.   In the email, Kris had talked about picking black berries and trying to make a berry cobbler like Mama’s.  So Mama and Clement got into conversation about making not only berry cobblers but making berry jellies and berry jams out of fresh berries.

The fine christian folks from the Fairdale Baptist Church cooked fish for the residents and friends/family of the Hemphill Care Center.  The hot and muggy weather did not affect the quality of their fish, hush puppies, french fries or cole slaw.  They did a great job and it was appreciated by all.

On the way to town a couple of days ago, I noticed a person had lost control of their vehicle and run through a fence coming to rest in a field.  Hopefully, no one was injured.
