Woman files lawsuit after falling victim to Walmart gift card scam


Good morning everybody.  Was drinking my coffee and checking email and news, and ran across this article.  Technology can be our friend, and prepaid store cards can be a great item, especially as gifts that students can use to purchase school items they need when they need them.

But cyber crooks are always looking for a way to separate you from your hard earned bucks, and this Walmart scam is something to be aware of.  Apparently crooks have figured a way to grab store card info in the store, and file it somewhere, so that when someone purchases and activates the card, the crook accesses the funds first.

Check out this article, be aware of store cards, and pass this along to anyone you might think would be interested in it.

Dragon’s Breath snacks make you exhale ‘smoke’ — and they’re sending teens to the hospital – The Washington Post


Well if school is starting up for the fall semester, we must be in for some new crazy fads for students to be trying.

This one is a snack called “Dragon’s breath”, which is created using liquid nitrogen, which in case you were wondering, is VERRRRRRRRRRRY cold (like, oh, MINUS 320 degrees F)

So teachers, and parents alike…warn your kids to try OTHER crazes…like seeing how many kids can get in a phone booth.  That should be a pretty safe fad, since I do not know if you can even find a phone booth anymore.  Guess that why Superman and other superheroes and superheroines aren’t around anymore.
