New at Home! In 1970 the first over the counter home pregnancy test was introduced. Now there is a a who's the Daddy DNA test on the shelves. Over the counter home paternity tests cost @ $20.00 each plus around $25.00 to be sent to be tested at it's Florida based lab. This "DNA Paternity" is not permissable in a Court of Law. 45 seconds of vigorous cheek swabbing is required.

Here are some tips on getting more for your money when buying gas, and what gas stations import from the middle east.
Subj: TIPS ON PUMPING GAS
I don't know what you guys are paying for gasoline.... but here in California we are also paying higher, up to $3.50 per gallon. But my line of work is in petroleum for about 31 years now, so here are some tricks to get more of your money's worth for every gallon..
Here at the Kinder Morgan Pipeline where I work in San Jose , CA we deliver about 4 million gallons in a 24-hour period thru the pipeline. One day is diesel the next day is jet fuel, and gasoline, regular and premium grades. We have 34-storage tanks here with a total capacity of 16,800,000 gallons.
Only buy or fill up your car or truck in the early morning when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the more dense the gasoline, when it gets warmer gasoline expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening....your gallon is not exactly a gallon. In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products plays an important role.
A 1-degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.
When you're filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to a fast mode. If you look you will see that the trigger has three (3)stages: low, middle, and high. In slow mode you should be pumping on low speed, thereby minimizing the vapors that are created while you are pumping. All hoses at the pump have a vapor return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some other liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapor. Those vapors are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you're getting less worth for your money.
One of the most important tips is to fill up when your gas tank is HALF FULL or HALF EMPTY. The reason for this is, the more gas you have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space. Gasoline evaporates faster than you can imagine. Gasoline storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the gas and the atmosphere, so it minim izes t he evaporation. Unlike service stations, here where I work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every gallon is actually the exact amount.
Another reminder, if there is a gasoline truck pumping into the storage tanks when you stop to buy gas, DO NOT fill up--most likely the gasoline is being stirred up as the gas is being delivered, and you might pick up some f the dirt that normally settles on the bottom. Hope this will help you get the most value for your money.

* Cell Phone
Today, 10/11/2007 is the 35th Anniversary of the Cell Phone! The first phone costed #4.000.00 - Four thousand dollars and was quite large!
Cell phones older than most college students
" What most students probably do not know is the first cell phone call was placed more than 31 years ago on April 3, 1973. ...It was Cooper's vision, of personal wireless communication, that led to the creation of the modern-day cell phone."
Martin Cooper, inventor of the first cell phone.
Many cough, cold and fever products marketed toward children have been recalled today. The problem is that we have had these over the counter medicines such as Baby Tylenol for fever that gives dosage instructions for age two and up. Theses types of medications state that one should consult a doctor for the amount to give a child under two years old.
Often people estimate and determine a dosage on their own. There have been reports of children under two years old dying from this kind of treatment so the whole market for this age group is being revamped. The manufacturers are recalling on their own in order to preserve the larger market of cold cough and fever over the counter medicines for older children.
* RECENT RECALLS WARNING!!! and Recalls.gov
Today, 10/6/2007 - Sam's Club Stores sold - American Chef Selection - Angus Beef Patties
Most recent... 22 million pounds of Beef, the second largest recall in history has resulted in two lawsuits and the closing down of the Topps Beef Company, famous for their frozen beef patties...
Yesterday, a brand of Campbell's Soup was recalled due to a choking hazard. First reports sounded like the cut of the food chunks was too large, later it was stated that the soup had pieces of plastic in it.
Last week there was a recall of toys sent as replacements for recalled toys that had lead pain, made in China.
All kinds of products from China have ben recalled. Famous name brand toys with lead based paint, counterfeit medicines which have found their way into the main stream and in US pharmacies reported by Dateline TV had things like yellow road paint to produce the right color appearance and so much more.
Were things always this bad and we just did not know? Have the values of creating good products and the integrity of people who create products for use and consumption dropped over the last 100 years?
This is an old saying... "Buyer Beware!"
* RECENT RECALLS WARNING!!! and Recalls.gov
Polly Pocket, Barbie Batman over 9 MILLION Toys recalled, Dora, Diego and more Mattel Toys recalled. Recent recalls have included Pet Food, Tires, Toothpaste and more made in China. A recent Dateline report showed how counterfeit medicines were being made using things such as road paint to create the proper color and plaster for texture and making their way into legitimate pharmacies like Rite Aid and more all across the United States. One man paid $500. per bottle for a medicine that was fake for his wife. PLEASE BE CAREFUL! The toys may contain small magnets or lead based paint.
* $300 PCFS Gift Card WARNING!!!
I received a $300. PCFS Gift Card in the mail that came with a letter and a phone number to call to activate it. It seemed odd, I did not expect it and although I would not mind spending $300. for free it appeared to be odd and fishy.
My first attempt to look up PCFS was not successful. I however tried again today 7/29/2007 and found the link above and here http://www.hwforums.com/2086/messages/4583.html.
The card is a scam. Don't try to use it, it is false advertising to get people to opt into a student loan consolidation according to the posts. It probably isn't even that legitimately. It is too deceptive to be of any type of trust to share any more of your information than they already have by having sent this to you.

A four year old in my city was kidnapped from a front yard, driven away, raped and dropped off about 18 blocks away this week. In another neighborhood grown women have been assaulted and the culprit is being searched for in both incidents.
In my own neighborhood this year, right next to a high school, a man in a van was seen struggling with a woman. The police were called. He was attempting to rape her, had snatched her off the street and had done so to several other women in the past. The van was a part of his employment and this was something he did on his spare time.
Verizon needs to stop advertising to children. Everytime one of the Verizon Fios comercials come on and the child says "you should see his truck" to the father who is unconcerned that his son is outside talking to a stranger, it is very disturbing!

* Irresponsible Advertising
* 6/2/2007 - A very disturbing Verizon Vios commercial has been runing for the past several weeks on local tv stations in my area. The commercial shows a small child standing curbside alone with a stranger whose back door of a van is open supposedly from Verizon Vios. The adult engages the child in conversation dazzling him with his truck and inforemation about the cable service.
What is so disturbing? Why would a child of arounf 5 years old be out alone on a suburban sidewalk talking to a stranger in a van? The child should not be on the curb, should not be talking to a stranger and could if the person was less than well meaning, be kidnapped and lost forever...
Today a follow up commercial was shown where the young boy has gone inside to speak to his unconcerned father who is reading a newspaper inside the house, totally dumbfounded and out of touch as the child rattles off the information about the service told by the stranger. The next scene, the child and father are outside watching the Verizon man running wires to a box and the boy tells the father, "you should see his truck". The man does not show any ID to identify himself as the Verizon Rep.
These commercials show a parent who has no control or concern for the child who can wander in and out of the house at will and a child with no training to beware of strangers. A 5 year old or similar age is too young to be unsupervised. Young children, teens and even older folks, have been taken into vehicles against their will and have been kidnapped, raped and killed.
Overall these commercials are less than responsible and set a very bad example for children who view it. JMHO...

* Ms. Janie's Message Board
Have you ever found numerical coincidences in your life? I have. They are very odd and strange. My children have also exhibited interesting numerical oddities. In 2005, my son was murdered. The numerals for his birthday that year added up to his age as well as a number he often wore on different sweaters over the years unintentionaly. One year, my age was the same as my husband's 2 digit birth year and his age was the same as my birth year. Added together, the two birth years equalled the current year. Oddly our birth dates were similarly the same in an odd way. Once as well, a sibling pointed out how over time my mother and I had age correlations.
The following was found in a book by pOuNcEr, a reader of Ms. Janie's Message Board:
Presidents Day - Lincoln & Kennedy
I’m reading Mysteries of the Unexplained, a Readers Digest book. It has a lot of amazing things I have never heard of, and I have always paid attention to these things. Below is a list of similarities between Kennedy & Lincoln, which we’ve all heard before, but maybe not the entire list.
1) Lincoln was elected president in 1860, Kennedy in 1960.
2) Both men were deeply involved in civil rights for African-Americans (maybe this part is not coincidence).
3) Both were assassinated on a Friday, in the presence of their wives.
4) Each wife had lost a son while living at the White House.
5) Both were killed by a bullet that entered the head from behind.
6) Lincoln was killed in Ford’s Theater. Kennedy met his death riding in a Lincoln convertible (Ford Motor Co.).
7) Both men were succeeded by vice-presidents named Johnson, who were both Southern Democrats and former senators.
8) Andrew Johnson was born in 1808, Lyndon Johnson in 1908.
9) The first name of Lincoln’s private secretary was John, the last name of Kennedy’s private secretary was Lincoln.
10) John Wilkes Booth was born in 1839*; Lee Harvey Oswald in 1939.
11) Both assassins were Southerners who held extremist views.
12) Both assassins were murdered before they could be brought to trial (another non-coincidence?).
13) Booth shot Lincoln in a theater and fled to a barn; Oswald shot Kennedy from a warehouse and fled to a theater.
14) LINCOLN & KENNEDY each has seven letters.
15) ANDREW JOHNSON & LYNDON JOHNSON each has 13 letters.
16) JOHN WILKES BOOTH & LEE HARVEY OSWALD each has 15 letters.
17) The first public proposal that Lincoln be the Republican candidate for president (in a letter to the Cincinnati Gazette, 11/06/1858) also endorsed a John Kennedy for vice-president (John P. Kennedy, formerly secretary of the navy).
*according to some sources
In a similar coincidence to include (George Washington whose portrait appears), there was a dollar bill issued in Dallas 2 weeks prior to the JFK assassination, known as the Kennedy assassination bill. Dallas is the location of the 11th of the 12 Federal Bank districts (the bill bears the letter K, the 11th letter of the alphabet), so the number 11 appears in each corner. The serial number begins with K and ends with A (Kennedy Assassination). Eleven also stands for November, the 11th month of the year, two 11’s equal 22, the date of the tragedy. And the series number is 1963, the year the assassination occurred.

* 2/7/2007 - Hackers launch global attack on internet
"Hackers overwhelmed at least three of the 13 computers that help manage global computer traffic, in one of the most significant attacks against the internet since 2002. Experts said the unusually powerful attacks lasted as long as 12 hours but passed largely unnoticed by most computer users, a testament to the resiliency of the internet. Behind the scenes, computer scientists around the world raced to cope with enormous volumes of data that threatened to saturate some of the internet’s most vital pipelines. America’s Homeland Security Department confirmed it was monitoring what it called “anomalous” internet traffic."
* Global Warming Unstoppable, Report Says
"PARIS - Global warming is so severe that it will 'continue for centuries,' leading to a far different planet in 100 years, warned a grim landmark report from the world's leading climate scientists and government officials. Yet, many of the experts are hopeful that nations will now take action to avoid the worst scenarios. 'It's not too late,' said Australian scientist Nathaniel Bindoff, a co-author of the authoritative Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report issued Friday. The worst can be prevented by acting quickly to curb greenhouse gas emissions, he said. ...Global warming is 'very likely' caused by man, meaning more than 90 percent certain. That's the strongest expression of certainty to date from the panel. ...If nothing is done to change current emissions patterns of greenhouse gases, global temperature could increase as much as 11 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100."
