AH, come on Dad, I can get my own fish, please Dad please, let me go with you…

ATTENTION:  One by one, your accounts
are being hacked due to poor security

DO YOU WANT TO STOP THIS BEFORE IT HAPPENS TO YOU????

#1 – DO NOT LEAVE ANY EMAIL IN YOUR ACCOUNT FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW WHO IT IS FROM PERSONALLY!!!!  DO NOT JUST DELETE IT, MARK IT AS “SPAM“, AND WHEN ASKED, REPLY “YES, REPORT THIS”.

#2 – Start keeping your email account as near EMPTY AS POSSIBLE, this is not always people from another country… If there is any doubt about what I mean by this, just ask me privately.

#3 – Change your password NOW!!!!  Then, make your new password unique, at least 12 – 15 characters long, with a mixture of caps, little letters, numbers, and symbols.

#4 – TURN ON TWO (2) STEP VERIFICATION, AND USE IT EVERYTIME.

#5 – When you see a friend wanting to be your “Friend” on Facebook, get a screenshot if at all possible, and TELL YOUR FRIEND IMMEDIATELY!!!!  Then, contact FB Support IMMEDIATELY!!!!  FB Messenger is very vulnerable due to users being complacent about security.

#6 – Get a top-of-the-line Security Suite, NOT A FREE ONE.  Your family is worth it, and you will sleep better.  My Security Suite covers 5 devices, and my Wi-Fi.  Then set your “HOME” network as “PRIVATE” not “PUBLIC”.   Use a “PUBLIC” Wi-Fi as little as possible, and then, only if you have a very good Securiy Suite.  NOTE:  Children should not be allowed to use a “PUBLIC” Wi-Fi.  It is a Parent’s job to supervise their Children 24/7, and teach them the proper, secure way in our digital world.

#7 – I also utilize a top-of-the-line VPN, I suggest you all do also.  Once again, your family is worth it, and you will sleep better.

#8 – This is not the end of everything I could bring up, like apps for children’s devices, or not putting your families info on a page for the world to see, and certainly not posting pictures of your family or even your children.  HOWEVER do not post less than fully dressed pictures of children!!!!

#9 – NOW, last but not least, how do you find out if your lack of proper security has set you and your family up for, at the very least, mental abuse…. or possibly a site did not do their job of making sure your data was secure????  These money people are getting off with symbolic slaps on the hand for BEING COMPLACENT WITH YOUR DATA!!!!  I have just what you all need to find out if your email address has been compromised, AND you can setup notifications for future breaches.

have i been pwned?

Remembering Carmen To Stop Child Abuse

Carmen Ellis Memorial Ride – Stop Child Abuse

Annual motorcycle ride brings
awareness about Child Abuse, Safety

INDIANAPOLIS, IN  –  The grandmother of a fatal child abuse victim hopes motorcyclists and even non-riders will help raise awareness about keeping kids safe.

Although 3-year-old Carmen Ellis is no longer alive, her memory lives on thanks to her family, friends and even people who never had to a chance to meet her.

“She was just the sweetest little girl and just very funny,” Tina Smith said.

Tina lights up talking about her late granddaughter Carmen.  She and her husband, Lorin Smith who is also a motorcyclist, are organizing another annual fundraiser called the Carmen Ellis Memorial Ride, which started eight years ago following Carmen’s death.

“She died August 22, 2012, killed because of child abuse by my daughter’s boyfriend,” said Tina.

Every year since 2012, to remember Carmen, Tina has raised money for child abuse charity.

The Smiths have teamed up with local VFWs, which serves as some of the stops for the memorial ride.  This year the fundraiser will also include kicking off with a breakfast where participants can make donations.  The breakfast takes place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. with an all-you-can-eat buffet with a $7.75 donation.  The memorial ride starts at The American Legion Post 495 located at 8725 East 38th St., in Indianapolis.  The donation is $20 per motorcycle rider and just $5 per passenger. Kickstands up at 10:30 am.

The couple also plans to do a 50/50 drawing, auctions and raffles.  Tina and Lorin don’t usually set a number of riders for each event but it has grown each year just by word of mouth.  This year’s event will take place after missing last year.

The memorial ride happened last year but without Tina and Lorin.  They both lost their lower left legs in crash with a distracted driver and spent months in physical therapy.  So now they’re inviting everyone to be in Carmen’s Ride.

“You can be on a motorcycle, on a slingshot, a car, a truck or a van,” Tina said.  “As long as it’s roadworthy you can be there with us.”

This year the memorial ride is even more special because it’s on Aug. 22, which is the same date Carmen received her heavenly wings.

Whether you do Carmen’s Ride or not Tina wants everyone to help with stopping child abuse.

“The child should come first,” Tina said. “They are so dependent on us, the adults, just adults to help them.”

Disney+ Now Streaming F-Word

Disney Remove Profanity from Hamilton

Parents Tell Disney+ to Remove F-Word
in New Movie

The film Hamilton is now streaming on Disney+, and the movie includes another first for the streaming company – the use of the f-word along with other excessive profanity.

Hamilton, the Broadway musical turned film, was released July 3 on Disney+ and is rated PG-13.

According to a June 24 press release from Parent Television Council (PTC), Hamilton creator “Lin-Manuel Miranda confirmed that two of three “f-words” were dropped from the streaming version in order to reach the broadest audience.

The Motion Picture Association allows one ‘f-word’ to be used in PG-13-rated films…  But Disney’s decision to allow even one ‘f-word’ to be heard on its Disney+ platform – a platform that bears Walt Disney’s name and that is marketed directly and primarily to millions of families with children – is shameful.”

Once again Disney is not protecting its young audiences.  Also, Disney continues to be uncooperative with the Family Movie Act – legislation that would allow parents to use technology to filter and block inappropriate and explicit content in films.

Disney needs to highly reconsider the language it includes in its movies.  Shame on Disney+ for allowing even one f-bomb, along with other multiple uses of profanity, to remain in the film Hamilton It’s just too much and totally unnecessary on a streaming service for family and children.

TAKE ACTION

Sign our petition to Disney CEO Bob Chapek urging him to remove the f-word from the film ‘Hamilton’ immediatelyLet him know your family will not be watching this movie because dropping the f-bomb and using inappropriate language goes against your beliefs and values that you teach your children.

TAKE ACTION NOW! 

Blessings,

Proclamation By Our President

Child abuse causes the loss of innocence and hope. Loving, devoted, and caring families can serve as a bulwark against our children suffering from neglect and abuse.

Proclamation on National Child Abuse
Prevention Month, 2020

Issued on: March 31, 2020

Childhood should be filled with joy, hope, unconditional love, and acceptance. Tragically, however, far too many of our Nation’s young people spend this foundational time of their lives in fear, pain, and uncertainty, enduring abuse and neglect that threatens their health and well-being.  During National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we condemn this horrific depravity and reaffirm our unwavering commitment to protecting our children and strengthening our families.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of children across our country suffer from abuse and neglect, a fact that is both sobering and heart-wrenching.  In January, I signed an Executive Order to coordinate the Federal Government’s efforts to prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children online, protect and support victims of child exploitation, and provide prevention education to raise awareness and help lower the incidence of child exploitation.  I also signed into law legislation to enhance our child welfare systems by supporting at-risk families through mental health and substance abuse treatment and programs to develop parenting skills.

With our international partners in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, the United States developed the Voluntary Principles to Counter Online Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse.  The Voluntary Principles establish a baseline framework for companies that provide online services to deter use of the internet as a tool for sexually exploiting and abusing children.  Several major technology companies have publicly adopted the principles and more will follow in the coming months.  These companies have a responsibility to prevent their platforms from becoming a haven for child predators and to also ensure law enforcement is able to investigate and prosecute offenders when children have been victimized.

Child abuse causes the loss of innocence and hope.  Loving, devoted, and caring families can serve as a bulwark against our children suffering from neglect and abuse.  Child Welfare Information Gateway, the information service of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Children’s Bureau, offers several resources on preventing child abuse and promoting healthy families through its National Child Abuse Prevention Month website.  Familiarizing yourself with the information provided by the Department of Health and Human Services can help you learn more about what you and your community can do to support children and families during this month and throughout the year.

To eradicate this blight on our society, compassionate and concerned Americans must work to effect change and impact young lives.  Child welfare agencies, clergy members, educators, medical and law enforcement professionals, neighbors, friends, and extended family members all contribute to protecting and nurturing our Nation’s youth.  Foster, kinship, and adoptive parents open their hearts and their homes to children in crisis and empower them to find happiness and achieve their dreams.  Working together, these forces for good can ensure the welfare of children who have experienced the traumas of abuse or neglect and give them a promising future.

The success of our Nation is reflected in our economic and cultural prosperity and military might, but our character is revealed by how we cherish and protect the weak, innocent, and vulnerable.  All children are uniquely created in the image of God and gifted with both purpose and unlimited potential.  We can and must relentlessly protect our children, homes, and communities from the scourge of these shameful tragedies and support families and communities to ensure that all children have the opportunity to reach their potential.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim April 2020 as National Child Abuse Prevention Month.  I call upon all Americans to invest in the lives of our Nation’s children, to be aware of their safety and well-being, and to support efforts that promote their psychological, physical, and emotional development.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of March, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fourth.

DONALD J. TRUMP

I am very proud to introduce Ms Kait King, a true Writer Extraordinaire.

I don’t mind telling everyone that I have been Blessed every way possible, since starting that little one page gift to Google+ and all it’s users 5 years and 7 months ago, and Ms Kate King is one of those Blessings, a very large Blessing to be exact.

I met Ms King shortly after I opened our website.  I can tell you what I remember from back then: Ms King was a very good writer, and well educated.  But I was glad that I wasn’t standing in front of her, because I was humbled to tears.  This very special Lady was as good a Parent and Mother, as any that has ever walked this earth… and I stand by my words today.  There was only one thing that struck me as odd, she was working on a project with the name of “The 3 Pigs”.

OK, just one more thing, a warning, if anyone does not follow this link to The Secret Password©, you are going to miss something you will never forget….

You can continue to read the whole original story on Ms Kait King’s site, The Writer’s Blogk, by selecting the link immediately following this short excerpt. . Thank You all for reading, and when you are finished reading this unforgetable story, please do as Ms King wishes: Please Pass It On!

My son is 29 years old now and it has always amazed me at how many parents through those many years, and even now, who have no idea about the concept of the Secret Password.

I used to work as a National Intelligence Support Officer for the police.
