Is Radon lurking in YOUR home? - 05/22/08 01:58 PM
All Homeowners should test their homes for radon, even if they aren't buying or selling. Do it for your families health! Prevention is the best medicine. What is Radon and how could it affect YOU or your family? Answer: Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. Radon is invisible. And you can't smell it or taste it either! But you should test for it because it may be a hidden problem in your home, or a problem in a home you may consider buying. Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. It can cause problems in your lungs. That's because (15 comments)
Preventing Identity Theft ~ Scam Alert! - 05/17/08 08:22 PM
This was in my email today, and I thought it was important enough to post in order to prevent identity theft from occuring to even one person and keeping them from falling into this identity theft trap and disclosing any personal information about themselves. I know most of us are too smart for this, but it pays to see warnings about any scams that are occurring to keep us on our toes and possibly keep it from happening to you or anyone you know. This particular scam has been going on since 2005 and maybe YOU have NOT heard about this. (I know I had NOT). Please don't be (21 comments)

If states will soon be regulating WHO gets mail, where will it all end?? - 05/13/08 10:04 AM
Earlier I wrote about the Do Not Mail List possibly coming into effect, with some states pushing harder than others This is how the Do Not Call List got started, it slowly but surely came into effect. Yes, I did put my home phone and my cell phone on the Do Not Call List because the calls got out of hand and ridiculous. Yes, I do open my mail over the trash can and throw away all junk mail on the spot, but does that mean that I want it to become a law that only certain people can mail letters (62 comments)
