Re: Please send back!!!

First, come on, REALLY? — God does not bless according to CHAIN LETTER!!!  [Christian emotional coercion doesn't set a shining example in MY opinion]

Second, all CHAIN LETTERS (which is what this is... "forward this, then send it back to me") are just EMAIL ADDRESS GRABBERS — THESE KINDS OF MESSAGES WILL ONLY GET YOU MORE SPAMMED!!!

Forwarding these types of messages is a way for "people" to capture your email address — just like I did by easily extracting 
(using a simple script) 
every email address from every forwarded reply contained below!  (P.S. I have removed them from the quoted responses below)

Good digital manners are priceless.  
My real point is that it is not really acceptable "digital manners" 
(netiquette) these days to forward spam, junk, hoaxes, stupid jokes, funny stories or cute pictures willy nilly and unrequested! Just because it's easy to forward email doesn't mean you should do it…keep it to yourself (at least be JUDICIOUS about it!!!) and expect a ear-full if you don't! 

So, when you forward messages like this you are exposing ALL of your "friends" to potential SPAM and other vulnerabilities!!!  

(Perhaps, then, a good rule when FORWARDING a message might be setting your email preferences to quote only selected text, and by selecting only the body of the message when forwarding -OR- cut and paste the message body into a new email!  We don't need to know who all a message has been sent to… And none of us need our email addresses out in the wild...)

"Forewarned is Forearmed"
 And have a great day!

AND ANOTHER THING… how2 avoid spam and keep your inbox under control:

*** Use a separate "public" email address when a website asks for your email (you know when you signup on a site and it says you have to verify your address by clicking on the link in the email they just sent you — a trick to get your permission to send you more emails!)  [Also, when forwarding messages?]  That way you can keep "junk" out of your "personal" inbox!  

Don't have one?  You can get a great one FREE at  

(...better yet, use the address from your internet service provider (e.g., "" or "", etc.) — since you may lose that address if you change providers or move — and switch to Gmail (or some other) as your personal permanent address!)

Also, remember to ALWAYS go back into the "account settings/preferences" of any online website you signup on and MAKE SURE that the checkbox for receiving messages or newsletters from the website is UNCHECKED!!! (if you don't want them)

This will keep all of, what I call the Internet's version of "Postal Circulars" (i.e., junk mail, newsletters, site updates, notices, etc.) in ONE place; away from your important personal emails! And if this inbox gets out of control you can simple delete it and start a new one…without the fear of losing any "important" messages...

Since you're a "keeper" in my books ........... 
Concentrate on this Sentence 

'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.'  When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.  Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'   Something good will happen to you today; something that you have been waiting to hear.   

This is not a joke; someone will call you by phone or will speak to you about something that you were waiting to hear.  Do not break!  

Send it to a minimum of 3 people...   Not before you read below.    


There comes a point in your life when you realize:

Who matters,
Who never did,
Who won't anymore...
And who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past,
there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
Give these flowers to everyone you don't want to lose in 
Including me, if that's what is in your heart.
Try to collect 
 8 ; it's not easy!
