Flu Could Wipe Out 62 Million People

A global flu pandemic could kill 62 million people warned the experts. In l918 a pandemic claimed 50 million lives and experts predict the toll today would be higher than this despite medical advances. The world's poorest nations would be hardest hit, fueled by factors such as HIV and malaria infections, the Harvard University researchers believe. Needless to say, yet developing countries can least afford to prepare for a pandemic. This needs to be addressed.

Broadway Walkout Ends

A deal has been reached to end a strike by stagehands at Broadway theaters in New York, which has shut down more than 20 shows for more than two weeks. This has been a great disappointment to visitors to New York who planned their vacation to take in a couple of Broadway shows.A spokeswoman for the theaters said performances would resume and did resume yesterday. This agreement came after two days of marathon talks between the strikers, the theaters and producers.

Snow and Ice

Well, we got a little bit of that snow they promised us but that is just the beginning. I heard cars were spinning off the road last night. It takes awhile to get used to winter driving again. The highways are clear now but I guess we are really in for a 6 inch snowfall tomorrow and freezing rain and it doesn't sound good at all. I went to the grocery store and stocked up as the cupboards were bare. I don't usually get that much, maybe once a month or even less. But like to have enough meat in the freezer to last a while so we should be set. Keep an extra loaf of bread and some frozen garlic bread and biscuits in there too as it seems like milk and bread are two of the things we run out of most quickly. Sun is shining and wind isn't blowing so it isn't too bad.

Wine of the Month

I have received two bottles of wonderful red and white wine from the Belvedere and Bradford Mountain Wineries. This delicious Chardonnay and impressive Zinfandel are a part of the wine of the month program that Sally and Bill Hambrecht began in l979. Their newsletter is very interesting, telling about how the wineries came to be. Bill, whose investment banking firm is the most successful in the world, also has award winning wines, especially from grapes grown on hundreds of prime vineyard land. Producing quality wine, doing it well and sparing no expense has paid off in a unique combination of wineries. You can order direct from them and have them sent to your home or friends with a gift card enclosed especially for them. They would make wonderful Christmas presents and you can also set up a plan wherein you can have these fine wines shipped to you every month, quarterly, six months or 12 months, depending on the wines you choose. In addition, if you are giving a gift, you can order a special illustrated gift box that not only makes a wonderful presentation but is a great keepsake box to use for many things. The newsletter contains a very interesting history of Zinfandel grapes and more. Order yours today.

Republican Debate - Sparks Fl

The Republican presidential candidates have had heated exchanges in another televised debate, their first to feature questions submitted via video-sharing website YouTube. Among other topics, they clashed over immigration and the troop timetable in Iraq. They stood there in matching dark suits and white shirts on the stage in St. Petersburg, Florida - eight candidates who were so reluctant to engage the youthful, online generation that they had turned down an earlier invitation from YouTube. But now they were here, apparently determined to make the most of it. They turned what could have been another dull stage show into the most animated and entertaining GOP debate so far.

Hackers Hijack Web Search Results

A huge campaign to poison web searches and trick people into visiting malicious websites has been thwarted. The booby-trapped websites came up in search results for search terms such as "Christmas gifts" and "hospice". Windows users falling for the trick risked having their machine hijacked and personal information plundered. The criminals poisoned search results using thousands of domains set up to convince search index software they were serious sources of information. It is sure a good thing they caught this before it was too late.

Iraq - Long Term Presence Framework Set

On Monday, President Bush signed a deal setting the foundation for a potential long term U.S. troop presence in Iraq. The details are to be negotiated over matters that have defined the war debate at home. That is how many U. S. forces will stay in the country and for how long. The agreement between Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki confirms that the United States and Iraq will hash out an "enduring" relationship in military, economic and political terms. This proposal underlines how the U.S. and Iraq are exploring what their relationship might look like once the U.S. significantly draws down its troop presence.

St. Judes's Hospital

Marlo Thomas wants holiday shoppers to set aside a little of the money they are spending on holiday shopping and donate it to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This hospital was founded b her father, Danny Thomas. There are so many children who are alive today that would be dead if it were not for St. Jude's Hospital. Most people couldn't afford the care on their own, so it is a very good place to send your donations.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer sneaks up on men. There are no symptoms. If you get really sick, then chances are it is in your bones already and there isn't much hope. It is very important that all men get a PSA blood test by age 50. I think age 45 would be even better. Men in there 50's usually have to have surgery if diagnosed with prostate cancer. An enlarged prostate can also give a high reading of PSA but they take biopsies to find the cancer for sure. Men over 70 aren't offered surgery usually, but rather radiation or hormone shots. It is a sneaky disease and worth a man's time to check into it.

Pakistans's President Frees Thousands of Opponents

President Musharraf freed thousands of opponents from jails Tuesday in a sign he is rolling back a wave of repression under emergency rule and flew to Saudi Arabia to talk about the future of an exiled rival, Nawaz Sharif. Saudi officials said there were efforts to arrange a meeting between Musharraf and Sharif, who was ousted as prime minister by the general's l999 coup. However, a Pakistani official said Musharraf's goal was to prevent Sharif from returning before parliamentary elections January 8.

Last Rhodesian Prime Minister Dies

Ian Smith, age 88, ruled the country now known as Zimbabwe. He was the last white prime minister whose attempt to resist black rule dragged the country now known as Zimbabwe into isolation and civil war. He has now died. He recently suffered a stroke and died at a clinic near Cape Town, South Africa, where he spent his final years with his family and long time friend, Sam Whaley, who was a senator in the former Rodesia.

Blames Bush and Cheney for Deceit

Former White House press secretary Scott McClellan blames President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for efforts to mislead the public about the role of White House aides in leaking the identity of a CIA operative. In an excerpt from his forthcoming book, McClellan recounts the 2003 news conference in which he told reporters that aides Karl Rove and I.Lewis "Scooter" Libby were "not involved" in the leaking involving operative Valerie Plame. I for one, am tired of hearing about this.

Samsung 46 inch LCD

My husband wants a new larger television so very bad. Our big one got hit by lightning so we got a smaller one and he just isn't happy. So we went to look into the internet and found samsung 46 inch LCD. This is the best search engine that provides product, location and pricing on all kinds of televisions, appliances, and most everything for the home that you are looking for and more. They have compiled the information by categories so you don't need to search all over, just go to televisions and there they are. You can find what you want pretty fast and then you decide on the price you want to pay and next you find the store nearest you and go there and buy it. How easy can it get? And a lot of places will ship their televisions to the store nearest you and they will deliver it free. My daughter did that and she is very happy with their new television. Try it the next time you want a new television, perhaps for Christmas? The flat panel ones are dropping to an affordable price now. Check them out.

Thanksgiving Dinner

We are going to our daughter's for belated Thanksgiving dinner today. There will be too much food as always and everyone will overeat. That's half the fun of it. There will be lots of pictures taken and the new baby girl will be there for us to see her in person instead of just pictures. Heard the kids are coming home from Texas for Christmas so will get to see the little baby boy then. Neat.

Cinnamon Rolls

Did you ever make little cinnamon rolls out of leftover pie crust? My Mom always used to do that and we just loved them so I make them too. Some people just roll out the crust, spread some butter on it and sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar and then bake it and break off pieces of it. I roll it out, spread butter on it, put cinnamon sugar mixture on it, then sprinkle just a bit of brown sugar on it, roll it up, cut it in little rolls and put it on non-stick foil on a baking sheet, bake at 350 degrees till just nicely set. Some of the butter and brown sugar will run out the sides a bit and they are ready when that is light brown, not burned. Pick them up with your fingers and eat them. UMMM good!

I make mine with only cinnamon and not all the other spices that give you a major case of heartburn. It is delicious and everyone who has eaten my pumpkin pie just loves it. Taking it tomorrow for dinner.

U.S. Agrees To New Talks With Iran

The United States has accepted an Iraqi proposal to hold new talks with Iran about the security situation in Iraq. The as yet unscheduled meeting would be the fourth round of talks between Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, and his Iranian counterpart. Two previous sessions ended inconclusively with Iran rejecting U.S. allegations that Iran is supporting Shia insurgent groups in Iraq by providing bomb make material responsible for the deaths of American troops.

Handgun Ban Challenge in D.C.

The Supreme Court said Tuesday it will decide whether the District of Columbia can ban handguns, a case that could produce the most in-depth examination of the constitutionalo right to "keep and bear arms" in nearly 70 years. The Justices' decision to hear the case could make the divisive debate over guns an issue in the 2008 presidential and congressional elections.

Movers New York

If you live in New York and are making plans to move, then you want to check into movers New York as they have the best reputation for moving in New York. They move both homeowners and commercial and are very trustworthy. They aim to take very good care of your possessions and make the move as stress free as possible for you. Moving isn't fun, I have moved many times. But it gives you a sense of relief to know you have a good dependable mover to help you relocate successfully.

Oil Prices Approach $100

Oil prices resumed their march toward $100 Tuesday, rising to records over $98 a barrel as futures drew strength from a declining dollar,and news of refinery problems. I don't know how many people in this country really realize how much trouble the dollar is in. It is lower than any currency anywhere in the world and this is a serious situation. There is also speculation that the Federal Reserve will again cut interest rates. Heating oil futures also rose to new records. Gasoline prices, meanwhile, extended their decline at the pumps they say, but not around here. It is going up.l We paid $3.10 a gallon this morning, while we know in the larger town about 25 miles away it is $3.00. That was the highest it has ever gone in this area as far as I can remember. Our light and gas company advised us awhile back, already, that our bills for heat and lights this winter would be at least 1/3 higher than last year and that is quite a bit.

Winter is Here

Winter is here and snow is knocking at our door from the west. A big snow storm is out west and we are getting alot of the cold off of it. It is 30 degrees but with the wind it feels like a wind chill of zero. We had to get gas this morning and I thought my hands would freeze. Walking into that Northwest wind is almost unbearable. So glad to get back into the nice warm house.

Thyroid and Holly, Our Little Boston Terrier

Holly has been having some problems with breaking out with staff. It comes at any time without warning and then she has to be put on antibiotics until it clear up. Well, it got so bad we went to another Vet and found out through a blood test that her thyroid is low. Her hair wasn't growing back where she had the breakouts and she was really beginning to look like she would go bald. She takes a tiny little pill every day and her hair has come back and she is beginning to look so nice again. It's funny how a dog can have a "people" health problem, isn't it?


The neighbor lady just got home from buying groceries and I have been watching her unload them. They have 4 children and I just saw her carry in a case of one kind of cereal. They are all in school except the one year old and I am sure they really go through alot of cereal. It seems like the sacks of groceries are almost endless. I remember when our five were all home yet, it took 2 grocery carts to fill it and I got so good at packing them, it took 3 or 4 for the grocery boy to carry them to the car.

Three diet drugs recommended for long-term use result in minimal weight loss and carry some serious side effects, a review of research found. But experts say the drugs may still be worth it for some people. Xenical, Meridia and Acomplia (not sold in the US), are the three drugs.

There seems to be a lot of difference in men's razors. We bought an awfully nice one Wednesday for my husband's birthday. He got it home and tried it out and he didn't like the way it shaved or didn't shave parts of his face. So tonight we stood in a long line and returned it and bought another. He is going to try it out tomorrow after charging it up tonight. I hope this one works.

New Eye Glasses

My husband finally got his new eye glasses today after two cataract surgeries that were very successful. He has 20-20 vision now in both eyes and just has a little bifocal to read with. He said it sure makes a difference as he was straining to read and his eyes were getting very tired every day. They loaned him a little pair of reading glasses but they were so scratched he really didn't even like using them. He's a happy man now having gone about 2 months without new glasses.

Car Insurance Rates

When you get a new car, sometimes you decide to go looking for a new car insurance to see if you can lower your rates. Or perhaps your company has kept raising their rates and your brother is telling you to change to his company. So I decided to go onto the Internet and see what I could find there for good car insurance and I found this site that gave me a lot of information on just what I was looking for in auto insurance. I like to be able to get several car insurance quotes before I decide which company to go with.This online website car insurance rates has all the information you need to make an informative decision. They not only have everything you need to know about car insurance but they can tell you how accidents effect your rates and what the minimum liability amount of insurance that you need to carry. You can go into their "State by State" and find your state and key in on it and see all about the insurance requirements for your state. They will give you free quotes for multiples drivers of your vehicle too. For our state they gave me the 5 lowest rates and I could get quotes in 5 minutes.That is terrific.

Baby Pictures

We finally got the baby pictures of little baby Emry William on email. Email is sure a great thing when they are in another state and we can see the baby right here on the screen. He's not so little. He's 9 pounds and such a nice big baby. They are easier to handle than a 5 pound baby. Ours were all over 8#10 oz, 8# 14 oz and 9#2oz, so I know. He will be so much fun with his little cousin Kaelyn when they get bigger. It is so neat to have two great grandchildren so close together and we will get to see them more than we get to see the other three.

We got an email from a good friend of our kids that has become an auctioneer. Now they have bought their auctioneering business near Chicago. That is a goal she had in life was to become an auctioneer and she went to school and got her licensed about 3 years ago. She always has been a very fast talker, hardly coming up for air, so I can believe that she is doing very well. She is also working for the Pregnancy Center and is an Executive there. She is a great Christian and doing so much good work.

Do you want a lower interest rate? Or are you more interested in what kind of rewards you can get from your purchases.

If you have bad credit, that is no problem either as they can fix you up with a credit card that will work for you. Business credit cards are available for small and large businesses. Also there are cards that you can gain airline miles or gas cards that give you some cash back. They have the card for you, I am sure. Just check them out.

Telephone Marketers

Well the telephone marketers are back on the phone again and I had to call in again and get my phone on the "Do not call" registry. They say it runs out every 5 years after you register. That is a pain and there seems to be alot of other kinds of calls that get through no matter what. I get alot of surveys over the phone and alot of calls for money from various groups. Sometimes I just hate to hear the phone ring but it doesn't ring now quite as much since I signed up again.


I went to an auction last week and there was everything under the sun there. I never saw so many toys and many were in their original boxes. There was alot of yarn and goods for sewing too and furniture and just about everything. We had to have something to eat too, of course, so had some maidrites and rice krispie bars with thick chocolate on top. My daughter brought me home the cutest little stuffed kind of brown and white dog. He is sitting here watching me type. At least he doesn't bark and doesn't have to be fed and I can just look over at him once in a while and enjoy him. He's my little posting mascot.

Cheap Wedding Favors

Along with everything else that goes with a wedding, are the wedding favors. It is good to find a place where you can get cheap wedding favors. A person needs to save a little money wherever they can but this website can help you save money in many ways. They have specials and you can get a discount on those specials. Right now wedding napkins are on sale and that is a good buy. You go through alot of those. They have a section too that tells you what is new and what is on special sale. They have everything for the reception, cake serving sets, cake toppers, table centerpieces, and even garters. Favors are many fromcandy and cookie favors to wedding cameras so that everyone can take memorable pictures during the reception and then the cameras are given to the bride and groom for their enjoyment.

Six Month Checkup

Tomorrow is my six month checkup. I had to take one of those fasting blood tests last week so I will get the results of that. Think I have lost a few pounds as I am exercising more and it makes a person feel good to exercise. Too much sitting puts on the pounds snacking too much. I am anxious to see how the test turned out as I am anemic and always glad to see good results there. I take liver and iron daily to keep it up.


I heard today from my brother that there was quite a bit of snow coming down about 20 miles or so north of us on Friday. We heard there were some flurries around but we didn't see any. The wind was very bad, about 40 mph and it was extremely cold and the wind chill was way down there but it didn't snow and I am glad of that. It seems to come soon enough and the winter seems like it is 6 months long. It helps if it waits till January and then it doesn't seem quite as bad.

Rare Coin

This is the place to check out on the Internet if you are interested in rare coins. Just look into rare coin for all the information you will need.

They have access to a worldwide network so they are always in touch with the latest trends in rare coin values.

Filing Cabinet

I think one of those big jobs I must do one of these days is to go through the filing cabinet again and throw out all the obsolete files in there. I have so many old medical forms but everything needs to be shredded too because they have information on them you don't just want to put out in the garbage. And now days they won't let you burn stuff like you used to be able to do. That was so simple then.

Plastic Piece for My Chair

I need to get to the store and get a piece of plastic to put under my chair here at the computer before I completely wear through the rug. I just noticed it is beginning to show signs of wear from rolling back and forth. I have two chairs that I use and both seem to be doing the same thing. I guess they are easy to find at Wal-Mart or Target so I will be going there the middle of the week and get one. It will be lots easier to move about too by the computer.

HD Professional Stock Videos

If you are looking for good High Definition stock footage, then you should look into HD Professional Stock Videos for what you need. They collect all the extra stock footage of cinematographers that they have left over after a "shoot". On the other side, there are people looking for just that High Definition stock footage because they aren't satisfied with the standard type. They buy up these extra clips and sell them royalty free so those buying them are able to use them all over the world. This is a great advantage to the cinematographers as they make 50% of the net revenue that is gained by the sale of their footage and gives them a regular monthly income at the same time. It is good for both buyers and sellers.

IBM Selectric Typewriter

I had them come and get my IBM Selectric Typewriter for repair. I think I need to give them a call and see what is going on with it. Although it is maybe 20 years old it is in excellent shape and a great electric correctible typewriter. I am beginning to wonder what it is going to cost too. I know the man who runs the business. He cleaned that typewriter on my job for many years and my employer let me buy it when I retired.

Italy Fans Rampage After Killing

Italian football fans have reacted violently inside and outside stadiums following the police shooting of a Lazio supporter. He was shot in what police called a tragic error as they tried to stop violence between rival fans at a motorway stop in Tuscany. The match was stopped after fans and police clashed.Later hundred of fans rampaged in Rome and there were also more in Milan.

Historical Options Data

Drugs for ADHD is Not The Answer

Research shows that treating children with ADHD is not effective in the long term. A study says drugs such as Ritalin and Concerta work no better than therphy after three years of treatment.

We see more country by accident than on purpose so guess we will have to wait till Thanksgiving and that's not too far off now.

Cherry Pepsi is my drink of choice and with granadine, it is even better. That is what I had last night with my Mexican food and it was soooo good.

My husband just walked over to the mailboxes and got the mail and he said the wind is really bitter. It is from the NW again. Yesterday it was from the south, but it was not warm at all. I'm glad he went to get it because I didn't want to do it. It is very cloudy and looks like it could snow but hope it doesn't snow for a long long time. It seems cold enough as it is.


We are having the best meatloaf for supper tonight. It makes such good sandwiches for the next day too from the leftovers. It smells good even before I bake it. Baked potatoes and green beans go well with meatloaf too. Hot biscuits and butter. Chocolate pudding and Cool Whip. I have to get it started in a couple hours so it can be ready about 5. We like to eat early and the house will smell soooo good.

Mexican Supper

We went out for a Mexican supper tonight and it was really good. The waitresses know us pretty well as we go there every week. It's not too far from home either. They have started having a special every Wednesday and Thursday nights and tonight it was a Taco platter. I couldn't eat it all so brought one big one home and it will be good tomorrow for lunch. We both love Mexican food.


I got my haircut this morning and it feels so good. I wear my hair in a short curly style and have done that for years. I remember the days when we teased our hair and sprayed it full of hairspray so it wouldn't move. Then you had to put a scarf over it so it wouldn't get blown out of shape in the wind when you went out for lunch or supper. You could tease and spray it so it would stay the same for a week. I love my short curly hair. Just wash it, brush it and go and it always looks the same.

US Stocks Slide Amid Credit Fears

Major US stock markets closed down after confidence in the banking sector was dented further by the resignation of Citigroup's chief executive. Markets in Europe and Asia had also seen falls in reaction to Charles Prince's exit, the second departures of a leading banking boss within days. What's going on? Not only that but stock markets in London, Paris and Frankfurt all declined on Monday, as well. Shares at Citigroup also fell 4.85% to $35.90 in New York trade on Monday. Part of the problem is worries over banks' exposure to US sub-prime related debts which has been causing market instability for several months. I don't know a lot about stocks but I think the Dow is seriously inflated and it wouldn't surprise me for it to take a big fall. Like they say, you better not keep all your eggs in one basket.

New York Marathon Winner

Britain's Paula Radcliffe held off Gete Wami in a thrilling sprint finish to win her second New York Marathon. Isn't that terrific? I couldn't make it a mile in any marathon and this gal ran the New York Marathon and broke the tape in 2 hrs 23 min and9 sec. She said she had years of Gete outprinting her and she wasn't going to let it happen again. Good for her. She tried hard and she won!!

King Tut's Face Unveiled to the World

The face of Egypt's most famous ancient ruler, King Tutankhamun, has been put on public display for the first time. Archaelogists took the mummy from its stone sarcophagus and placed it in a climate controlled case inside his tomb in Luxor's Valley of the Kings. The event comes 85 years to the day after the pharaoh's tomb was discovered by British explorer Howard Carter. Until now, only 50 living people have seen the face of the boy king, who died more than 3,000 years ago. As experts lifted him from his coffin, they briefly set aside the white linen covering his remains, revealing a shrivelled black face and body.

Cancer - Be Thin to Cut Risk?

Now the World Cancer research Fund has carried out the largest every inquiry into lifestyle and cancer. They have issued several stark recommendations. They feel that even those who are not overweight, should slim down if they want to cut their risk of cancer. This was due to a major international study. Not gaining weight as an adult, avoiding sugar drinks and alcohol and not eating bacon or ham is their conclusion. They feel everyone must also aim to be as thin as possible without becoming overweight. Too late for me. I love everything but the alcohol and I don't plan to change my lifestyle because another new study will probably come out next week that is just the opposite. We've seen that happen time and time again.
