Greetings Work and Family Members,

Check out the February events and mark your calendars for important dates.

*February Calendar (07)*
February is American Heart Month. It is good to remember that heart disease affects women too. The American Heart Association says, "Walk more. Eat well. Live longer. Start! today"

*Diffusing Your Child's Temper Tantrums*
The next time your child throws a temper tantrum, try giving a hug instead of a lecture. Hugs can be surprisingly effective in curtailing a child’s a tantrum.

*Quotes for Inspiration*

On education

It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated person, the enormous interest it adds to life.
—Edith Hamilton

*An Ounce of Prevention*

Do you travel with your laptop? If you do and have wireless, you should still call the hotel operator to get an access number and use it at least one time. Then if your laptop is stolen, you have more than your word that you did indeed bring your laptop with you. It pays to be cautious.

*Tech Tips*

Don’t give into temptation: Spam never stops

Some spam e-mails, for mortgage refinancing, for instance, can seem tempting to check out, but you are probably better off not clicking when it comes to electronic advertising that sounds too good to be true. Some Internet ads seem to be just what you’re looking for. But be careful, says MSNBC’s Bob Sullivan in the “Red Tape Chronicles” blog. Three years ago Sullivan intentionally answered spam ads for cheap mortgage loans to see what would happen. He’s still getting calls from answering those ads (he knows because he used a specific alias only for this purpose). Sullivan points out that one small lapse in judgment can mean years of unwanted solicitation.

The National Do Not Call Registry may do you no good here because you responded to an advertisement. Think before you click.

Be careful, be safe,

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. —Erma Bombeck
