    Serious Warning

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Serious Warning

    This has been around before but I’m sending it again just in case you didn’t see it. BA

    FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI HOSPITAL …VERY SERIOUS WARNING…

    I do this all the time! I guess I won’t be doing it ANYMORE!

    A few days ago, a person was recharging his mobile phone at home.
    Just at that time a call came in and he answered it with the charging

    instrument still connected to the outlet.

    After a few seconds electricity flowed into the cell phone unrestrained

    and the young man was thrown to the floor with a heavy thud.

    As you can see, the phone actually exploded.
    His parents rushed to the room only to find him unconscious,
    with a weak heartbeat and burnt fingers.

    He was rushed to the nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

    Cell phones are a very useful modern invention.

    However, we must be aware that it can also be an instrument of death.

    Never use the cell phone while it is hooked to the electrical outlet!

    If you are charging the cell phone and a call comes in,

    unplug it from the charger and outlet.

    FORWARD THIS TO THE PEOPLE THAT MATTER IN YOUR LIFE!!!
    Whether or not they have a cell phone;
    They can also inform others …

    Pregnant at 71

    Subject: Fw: Pregnant at 71

    A 71 year old woman went to the doctor’s office where she was seen by one of the younger doctors. After about four minutes in the examination room, she burst out screaming as she ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she told him her story.

    After listening, he had her sit down and relax in another room. The older doctor marched down the hallway back to where the young doctor was writing on his clipboard. "What’s the hell is the matter with you?!" the older doctor demanded. “Mrs. Terry is 71 years old, has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?"

    The younger doctor continued writing and without looking up said,

    "Does she still have the hiccups?"

    Where cashews come from? 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ralph & BA
    Date: 27 July 2014 00:31
    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Where cashews come from?

    Who knew????

    Always wondered how my favorite "nuts" grew…

    Well I learned something new today.

    Like most of you I also thought Cashews were a nut.

    Where cashews come from

    Ever wonder where cashews come from?

    You might think they grow inside a shell like any other nut, but the true origins are far more bizarre.

    First of all, cashews are not actually nuts, but rather fruits from the cashew tree, a large evergreen tree that thrives in tropical climates. The tree produces a red flower, which in turn produces yellow and red oval structures resembling apples.

    These so-called cashew apples are very juicy and pulpy, and their juice is often added to tropical fruit drinks.

    However, cashew apples are not actually fruits in a scientific sense; the real fruit of the cashew tree is the kidney-shaped formation growing at the end.

    These fruits, also called drupes, are harvested and become what we know as a cashew nut.

    In their raw form the other layer of the fruit contains multiple toxins, including anacardic acid, a powerful skin irritant similar to the toxin found in poison ivy, that must be removed prior to eating.

    Roasting the cashews destroys the toxins, but roasting must be preformed carefully outdoors because the smoke can irritate the lungs, sometimes to a life-threatening degree.

    When they are roasted cashews change from their natural greenish-gray color to the light brown nut sold in stores.

    Next time you crack open a tin of cashews, take a moment to appreciate the long journey those little c-shaped nuts took from the tree to your table! It also explains why they are so expensive!

    Now that I think about it, I never wondered why you can’t buy cashews in the shell, like other "nuts"!

    A great nation is not conquered from without until it has first destroyed itself from within.

    Bet You Didn’t Know That!!! 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ken W
    Date: 25 July 2014 23:08
    Subject: Fw: Bet You Didn’t Know That!!!

    Buying a watch in 1880 — interesting read.

    If you were in the market for a watch in 1880, would you know where to get one? You would go to a store, right?
    Well, of course you could do that, but if you wanted one that was cheaper and a bit better than most of the store watches, you went to the train station!
    Sound a bit funny?
    Well, for about 500 towns across the northern United States , that’s where the best watches were found.

    Why were the best watches found at the train station?

    The railroad company wasn’t selling the watches, not at all.
    The telegraph operator was.
    Most of the time the telegraph operator was located in the railroad station because the telegraph lines followed the railroad tracks from town to town.
    It was usually the shortest distance and the right-of-ways had already been secured for the rail line.

    Most of the station agents were also skilled telegraph operators and that was the primary way that they communicated with the railroad.
    They would know when trains left the previous station and when they were due at their next station.
    And it was the telegraph operator who had the watches.

    As a matter of fact, they sold more of them than almost all the stores combined for a period of about 9 years.

    This was all arranged by "Richard", who was a telegraph operator himself.
    He was on duty in the North Redwood, Minnesota train station one day when a load of watches arrived from the East.
    It was a huge crate of pocket watches. No one ever came to claim them.

    So Richard sent a telegram to the manufacturer and asked them what they wanted to do with the watches.
    The manufacturer didn’t want to pay the freight back, so they wired Richard to see if he could sell them.
    So Richard did.
    He sent a wire to every agent in the system asking them if they wanted a cheap, but good, pocket watch.
    He sold the entire case in less than two days and at a handsome profit.

    That started it all.
    He ordered more watches from the watch company and encouraged the telegraph operators to set up a display case in the station offering high quality watches for a cheap price to all the travelers.
    It worked!
    It didn’t take long for the word to spread and, before long, people other than travelers came to the train station to buy watches.

    Richard became so busy that he had to hire a professional watch maker to help him with the orders.
    That was Alvah.
    And the rest is history as they say.

    The business took off and soon expanded to many other lines of dry goods.

    Richard and Alvah left the train station and moved their company to Chicago — and it’s still there.

    YES, IT’S A LITTLE KNOWN FACT that for a while in the 1880’s, the biggest watch retailer in the country was at the train station.
    It all started with a telegraph operator: Richard Sears and his partner Alvah Roebuck!

    Bet You Didn’t Know That!!!
    Now that’s History!!!!!
