Royal Bank of Canada "review" 




Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, March 2

Hotmail seems to have been down when I sent the Wednesday
issue out. The bounces rattled in like machine gun fire for
a while. Well, Microsoft has been telling people for seven
years that Hotmail is finished, no longer supported, and
that they should get some other email. 

One of these days a routine hotmail malfunction
is going to be the last one, and  they wont fix it again.
This might not be the final malfunction, since outlook.com
had trouble too, but if you have a hotmail.com address, I
would strongly advise that you get yourself a different
address as soon as possible.

There are two ways to deal with that:
1) You can set your hotmail address to automatically forward
to the new address. 
The disadvantage is that spam will follow you there.

2) Put an autoresponder onto the hotmail address to tell
people you have moved to @outlook.com or 
@gmail.com or wherever.

Spammers send from faked addresses and cant read replies or
autoresponders, so they get left behind. 
The disadvantage is that some whiners will whine that they
have to change your address in their address book. 
They will get over it.

Have FUN!

He was escorting the suspect to the office in the front of the store (near the cash registers), when the shoplifter broke from his grip and tried to run away. After a roundhouse swing that connected with a solid thud, Eric slammed him against the wall pinned him there. When he looked up, he saw a number of surprised and concerned customers staring at him. "Everything's fine, Folks," he reassured them. "This guy just tried to go through the express line with more than ten items. The cops will pick him up as soon as they can get here." I have a hunch those people will count their items VERY carefully in the future. ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ >From Carol In 1856, Heinrich Heine, the German poet, left everything to his wife on the condition that she remarried "so that there will be at least one man to regret my death." ______________________________________________________ From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jose Tirado, 28, Orange County, Florida Orange County traffic shooter charged with attempted murder Orange County deputies said a passerby helped them get results and arrest a suspect in connection to what they are calling a possible road-rage incident that happened Thursday morning. Deputies arrested Jose Tirado, 28. He is facing several charges, including first-degree attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The sheriffs office said Tirado shot at another man while driving along Alafaya Trail near Golfway Boulevard. Deputies found bullet holes on the victims car. They said he was not hurt. A passerby saw what happened and wrote down Tirados tag number when he drove off. The passerby called the sheriffs office and gave them the information. They used the tag number to track Tirado down and located him at his home, where they arrested him. The sheriffs office is crediting the passerbys quick actions and for helping them get results. Its unclear if Tirado and the victim knew each other. Deputies havent released any information on a motive. The sheriffs office told News 6 that more details will become available once the report is released. Tirado is booked in the Orange County jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Edith Re: Royal Bank review Dear Webby I got an email claiming to be from the Royal Bank, that my account was frozen and required action. It had scary stuff like this: Please click the link below to reset your password. Verify Note: If within 48 hours access to members area will not be changed, we will be forced to suspend Your account for a long time for the proceedings. That sounded a bit hopey to me. Looking at the source with Eudora, I saw: From: "Royal Bank RBC" And the Verify link went to http://rb01-auth.review/ Was that legit or phony? Edith Dear Edith That is as phony as a $3 bill. Anything with a domain name ending in .review is phony. The REAL Royal bank is at rbc.com. Just like Webby.com, they got a real .com domain. That part "suspend Your account for a long time for the proceedings" is actually quite funny and sounds like it was written by a Nigerian, definitely not the authoritative style used by the Royal Bank. Don't click on that link, not even to fill out the forms with your mayor's name and address. Clicking on it might call a virus into your machine. Just dump that email, and dump the trash. Have FUN! DearWebby
and a friend were walking through the woods with a large Salmon under each arm when they met Michael and Donald. "Hey there's some wonderful salmon, where did you get them?" "Don't tell anyone," replied , we poached them out of the river." "How did you do that?" asked Donal "Well, Fred here dangles over the bridge, I hang on to his legs and when the salmon leap out of the water on their way upstream, he just catches them." "We'll try that Michael me boy." says Donald They get to the bridge and Donald hangs Michael over the edge of the bridge by his legs. After about twenty minutes Michael screams... "Quick pull me up, pull me up!" "Have you got a salmon?" asks Donal, "No," replies Michael "but there's a train coming."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Orecchiette with Cherry Tomatoes By 15mhhm15 [20 Posts, 4 Comments] Prep Time: 5 Cook Time: 10 Ingredients: 1/2 lb orecchiette pasta 2 Tbsp olive oil 1 Package cherry tomatoes 5 Tbsp basil pesto 5 Pieces Babybel mozzarella cheese Steps: Boil water in a pot, add a pinch of salt so the water boils faster and evenly. Add pasta and cook for 6 to 9 minutes or when pasta is ready. Drain the water and set pasta aside. Get a pan and drizzle the olive oil on the pan to sauté cherry tomatoes. Add pasta, basil pesto and stir around for a minute. Once off the heat, add mozzarella of your choice and its ready to serve. You can garnish with fresh basil, or black pepper on top if you would like. If you buy your pasta in bulk, orechiette is called "Small Shells". I usually sautee some chopped onions and bacon instead of the cherry tomatoes, and add ice cold, halved cherry tomatoes onto the top. Makes a nice taste contrast! Instead of basil pesto you can use parsley or cilantro, or for a nice change, oregano. Type of cheese is not critical at all. When I was a kid we used to get Emmental cheese with a hard rind. Dad used to cut the rind off and put it into a mason jar. Mom ground those rinds and that was the cheese added to pasta dishes like this one. Have FUN! DearWebby

50 Rare Photos from History You've Likely Never Seen Before
Two Irishmen were sitting at a pub having beer and watching the brothel across the street. They saw a Baptist minister walk into the brothel, and one of them said, "Aye, 'tis a shame to see a man of the cloth goin' bad." Then they saw a rabbi enter the brothel, and the other Irishman said, "Aye, 'tis a shame to see that the Jews are fallin' victim to temptation as well." Then they see a catholic priest enter the brothel, and one of the Irishmen said, "What a terrible pity...one of the girls must be dying. Let's pray fer her!"
