How to make spam filters for Gmail 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Saturday, September 15

It's the season to rumble.
Not just in the Arab world.
I just heard that the European Soccer league had to
get tough on improper behavior again. This time, it was
the team from Vienna. They got fined a HUGE sum of money,
and thei next game, against Trondheim, will be an empty
seat game. NO spectators inside the stadium, just a few
TV teams. 

That is one way to stop that nonsense.
I wish there was a way to do the same in the Arab world.
Well, Canada has started to do the equivalent by pulling
the Canadian Embassy from Iran, and kicking the Iranian
diplomats out of Canada. 
We are not playing your stupid games, GIT!

Change of topic!
Some of you will remember Dorothy and Leo, the wolf and bear
defenders from Alaska. When Leo retired from the Federal 
Forest Service, they moved to Montana. Montana is not doing 
any aerial hunting of grizzlies or wolves, so they had to adopt 
a different project: Monarch Butterflies.

It seems the annual Monarch migration is endangered and 
needs urgent help, and they are pitching in with all kinds of
rewards.



Their newest page is on Kickstarter: Milkweed for Monarchs

Tim, a mechanic, does work for the Air Force Academy. One day, a guard asked, "Mind if our new guard dog practices sniffing your truck? Tim obliged and the dog went to work. Almost immediately, it latched onto a scent and jumped into the truck bed sniffing furiously. Tim became nervous. There were no drugs or weapons. What could the dog be after? A few minutes later, the guard approached Tim. "Sorry," he said sheepishly, "our dog ate your lunch."
A loudspeaker system has been installed in the church. It was given by one of the members in memory of his wife. The church is now forming a Little Mothers Club. All women desiring to become Little Mothers are asked to meet with the pastor in his study after services. The font so generously presented by Mrs. Smith will be set in position at the east end of the Church. Babies may now be baptized at both ends.

According to Richland Police, school officials launched an investigation after rumors began circulating that Walker had engaged in sexual acts with a student. The case was then handed over to Richland Police who learned that Walker allegedly engaged in an ongoing relationship with a 16-year-old student Investigators say Walker admitted to having a sexual relationship with the student beginning at the end of the school year and continuing through the summer. Investigators are now looking into additional allegations that were made involving other students.

Her bail was set at $25,000. --------- Teacher / Student sex has been going on for thousands of years. Yapping about it on cell phones and email is the only part that is new, and that separates the boneheads from the Millions, who don't get caught.
Tech Support Pits: From: Brenda Re: How to make filters in Gmail Good Morning, I love your newsletter it gives me a start to the day. I have a question about gmail. How do you check your filters? I made a filter for spam and need to make sure that it isn't killing some of my regular mail. Since I wasn't sure on how to create one I want to make sure that I did it right. Can you help me? Sincerely Brenda Dear Brenda take a typical spam, for example one about fake watches. Look in it for a phrase, that is not likely to occur in any legitimate email. Then click on settings, filters, make filter and step through that. It is not quite as intuitive as it could and should be, but you'll figure it out. In the process of making the filter, you can TEST it. If it shows the mails you want filtered out and nothing else, then you have a winner. However, if it shows way too much and also catches good stuff, then you have to pick a longer phrase, or a different one, until a test shows JUST the bad stuff. The Gmail filters are not as easy and nowhere near as versatile as the ones in Mailwasher, but they do work quite well in combination with Gmail's already pretty good spam filtering. After making new filters it is a good idea to look in the Spam folder now and then to see if maybe one of your filters is casting it's net a bit too wide. By the way, you CAN use Mailwasher to wash your Gmail. With it's filters you can get really precise, and also combine many different rules. You can use CONTAINS ..., but DOES NOT CONTAIN, OR CONTAINS, and so on, and even use all the Regular Expressions and get really mean. You can use real programmer stuff, but just click it together with your mouse. The only thing you actually type or paste is the phrase it has to look for. Making filters to outwit the spammers becomes a real strategy game. The reward is not just clean email, but looking at the colorful pie chart in MailWasher to see which of your filters nabbed the most. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keeping Trash Bags in Place When I buy trash bags that don't like to stay in place, I simply measure off a length of elastic, sew it together and fit it over the trash can. When the bag is put into the can we simply pull the elastic over the edges and this keeps it from moving. We never take the elastic off, (except to clean it) we simply push it down a little, lift out the bag, and replace it.

>From Jeanne Recently, our 18-year-old daughter started hunting for her first real job. She spent an afternoon filling out applications, leaving them on the kitchen table to finish later. As I walked by, a section of the application on top jumped out at me. Under "Previous Employment" she wrote, "Baby sitting." In answer to "Reason for Leaving" she wrote, "Parents came home."

A young Navajo man excitedly calls his mother to say he's been in love awhile, she's the ideal girl, and he is going marry her. "Oh, that's wonderful. Hurry up and bring her over," his mother says with the excitement and impatience typical of mothers. "Not so soon," he laughs. "I want to see how well you know your son. I'm going to bring her over with two friends. You guess which one is her." The next day, he brings three beautiful Navajo women into his mother's house, sits them down on the couch, and they chat pleasantly for awhile. He then says, "Okay, guess which one I'm going to marry." She immediately replies, "The one on the right." "That's amazing! You're right. How did you know?" "I don't like her."
