Concerned Blonde

As a trucker stops for a red light, a blonde catches up. She jumps out of her car, runs up to his truck and knocks on the door. The trucker lowers the window, and she says: "Hi, my name is Heather and you are losing some of your load." The trucker ignores her and proceeds down the street.

When the truck stops for another red light, the girl catches up again. She jumps out of her car, runs up and knocks on the door. Again, the trucker lowers the window. As if they've never spoken, the blonde says brightly: "Hi my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!" Shaking his head, the trucker ignores her again and continues down the street.

At the third red light, the same thing happens again. All out of breath, the blonde gets out of her car, runs up, knocks on the truck door. The trucker lowers the window. Again she says: "Hi, my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!" When the light turns green the trucker revs up and races to the next light. When he stops this time, he hurriedly gets out of the truck, and runs back to the blonde. He knocks on her window, and as she lowers it, he says "Hi, my name is Kevin, it's winter and I'm driving the SALT TRUCK!"

Love is the only answer to every question. It is the only thing that will serve you in every situation. It is the route and the destination. It is medication, liberation and should be at the heart of and expression of your vocation. Rasheed Ogunlaru


 

Phone Scam!

Your phone rings once, maybe twice, and your Caller ID will show as Unknown or a long distance area code you're not familiar with.

By the time you answer it, no one is on the other end of the phone. They do not leave a voice mail, so you try calling back only to find no one is answering or there is some noise on the other end.

It's called "The One Ring Scam" and is part of a practice called phone cramming. You will subsequently be billed for the incoming international call if answered and also unwanted premium service charge, which typically appears as a $19.95.

Don't let your curiosity get the better of you. A good policy is to never answer your phone if you do not recognize the number (who dos not have caller ID these days). If they don't leave a satisfactory voicemail, just forget about the call. Some phones now have a function that will route certain numbers directly to voicemail so your phone does not even ring.


11 tips to avoid a winter pileup from a pro trucker

Road & Track By Alan Wrobel | Road & Track Wed, Jan 8, 2014 2:51 PM EST

In eight years as a truck driver, Alan Wrobel has driven 810,000 miles (accident-free) in 45 states and Ontario. He now covers Ohio, Michigan, Ontario, and Wisconsin for a beverage distributor. Here's some of his advice on how to handle yourself when the snow starts falling the rest is on the blog

When is Cold-Weather Driving Riskiest?

You face the greatest risk of losing traction on snowy, wet roads when temperatures are between 22 and 35 degrees Fahrenheit. At colder temperatures (10 to 20 degrees or less) snow-covered and icy roads afford more traction than at those warmer (22 to 35 degree) temperatures.

Don't believe it? Try this: Take two ice cubes. Place one in a deep freezer for 30 minutes. Drop the other in a glass of water. Try picking it in up with your fingertips. Notice how slippery it is? After 30 minutes, get the other ice cube from the freezer. My bet is it practically sticks to your fingers for a bit.

The same principle applies to driving. The ice is almost sticky in more extreme cold. But during heavy and slower traffic, more heat is applied to its surface, and traction will be commensurately reduced.

Ultimately, you're responsible for exercising your best judgment. If the weather is bad, stay put and let road crews do their jobs.

Be safe out there.

National Day of Prayer

THU 2014-05-01

Once again we will be gathering to observe the National Day Of Prayer at Shain Park in downtown Birmingham.

The National Day of Prayer is far more than a day to gather and pray. it is truly part of a much larger prayer movement that is changing the conditions of our culture.

ndp The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress' proclamation in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.

BE THERE! 11:45am
From 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM.. Location: Shain Park. Bates and Merrill, Birmingham, Mi.
