    whatever you do dont click the links! It's a very bad spam with links to website which can mess up your computer

    "Have you been receiving emails supposedly from CNN, showing Top 10 news and videos? Remember signing up for it? No? You are not alone.

    More than a thousand hacked Web sites are serving up fake Flash Player software to users duped into clicking on links in mail that's part of a massive spam attack masquerading as CNN.com news notifications, security researchers said Wednesday."

    Well it will be worth running an antivirus/antispyware check on your machine if you can just to make sure

    We've had some but I've just marked them as spam and rejected them in Mailwasher before I process to Outlook









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
