Aspirin reminder!  
A bottle of aspirin in your medicine cabinet can help with aches and pains but can also help save a life. If you or someone you know thinks they are having a heart attack take an aspirin right away and call 911. Aspirin is believed to help reduce damage to the heart if an attack happens. Be healthy!

I did get this call about 10 days ago and saw this on the news tonight.

 A person calls to say they are from Microsoft and they can see my computer has a virus. They talk you through some steps then get you to a point where they tell you you have a problem, (but there is no way you do because it is not possible) and try to sell you virus protection and ask for a credit card number. I put my hubby on the phone right away after just a few seconds talking to the bozo and he saw right through them....told them we have virus protection then he just ended the call. DON"T FALL FOR IT AND HANG UP!!!! It may be on Yahoo News....will post if I see it..

 “Operation Take Back.” 

"On Saturday, September 29th 2012 the Wayne Police Department in conjunction with the D.E.A. will be holding “Operation Take Back.”  This semi-annual event will take place in the lobby of Wayne Police headquarters between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.  On hand to collect all unused prescriptions and to answer any questions will be Detective Sergeant Jay Celentano of the Special Operations Unit and Detective Sergeant Charles Ahearn of the Youth Bureau. We strongly urge parents in our community to take advantage of this program to discard any unused or expired prescriptions.  The Wayne Police Department has identified the illegal use of prescription drugs as a rising trend among the younger people in our community.  This program is a voluntary prescription pill collection that will allow parents an opportunity to protect their families. We will not be collecting over the counter medications, needles, or any medication in liquid form."

 Cablevision Free Box...

If you took them up on the offer for the free box for a year,(since they make it impossible to watch tv without one now) check your bill. I was charged for said box and had to call to get it corrected. I have autopay and it's easy to overlook the charges. They don't deserve a penny more from me than I have to pay!

Repost:  Wayne Schools Summer Reading

Blood Donations Needed!
The American Red Cross is calling on all eligible donors to step up, roll up a sleeve and give blood or platelets this summer.

The Red Cross issued an emergency appeal for blood donors in late June. Since then, nearly 15,000 donations have been given above what was expected, cutting the blood donation deficit by 30 percent. However, thousands of donations are needed every day to ensure the blood supply meets patient need through the rest of the summer. 

Thank you to all who donated! For those looking to donate:

Even if you don't have kids who use backpacks you probably know someone who does. Please pass this info along!

I just heard about this product and had to share the info. What a great concept. I cannot vouch for quality so I would suggest doing some research. Amazon sells this item, I would check there for price comparisons with other sites. Here is the link, if anyone has one of these I would love feedback!
