#REMEMBER ME THURSDAY

DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY. DAISY MAE AT 11 1/2 YEARS OLD.

#REMEMBER ME THURSDAY

#REMEMBER ME THURSDAY is remembering those pets we love and how we enjoyed them. Sound sad well maybe a little or you can do what I’m going to do and tell your unique store how you adopted or rescued your pet.

My story is very unique because you don’t hear what I’m about to write about happening to often. My story is about how my family and rescued my current pet, a cat named Daisy Mae. Please enjoy this true story.

HOW DAISY MAE WAS RESCUED

How Did We Rescue Daisy Mae? Well when they say a cat chooses you and you don’t choose a cat they’re right. It all started one night when my parents brought me home from work. Where I work was 25+ miles away. They were telling me on the way home they thought they could hear a kitten meowing but couldn’t see it. They didn’t have time to look at that time but when I opened the car door my mother said to me, I wonder if we can still hear that kitten we thought we heard? As I walked out of the garage I could heard a loud meowing. So since we had the time we looked and looked around the area where we heard the meowing and after a while we found this black and white kitten that was no bigger than my Dad’s hand. 

We all knew what had to be done but there was slight problem. We already had a cat and we knew she wouldn’t be happy with a kitten invading her space. So we fed this kitten and put her in a cage since dad said he wouldn’t let another animal in the house until “Pigs Fly”. Mom and I were convinced but the kitten had to convince Dad. So we fed her, gave her water and kept her warm.

Then around September 12, we were having my nephew’s 4th birthday party at our house and of course the kids wanted to see the kitten. We wanted to name the kitten so we let the kids choose a name for the kitten. Since you never know what kids will come up with we just waited to see what name they came up with and surprisingly there were no crazy name suggestions. They all agreed on Daisy Mae.

Since we had an old garage at the time, it was common to see snakes and/or Snakeskin in the garage. But when my sisters and dad told the rest of us they saw a big snake in the rafters we laughed at them and said yeah right. Guess What? 🐷🐷🐷🐷🐷🐷Pigs flew that night sometime because my Dad said that’s it I’m saving Daisy Mae and she’s coming in the house.🐷🐷🐷🐷🐷🐷 We tried to keep Daisy Mae in a very large cage and we put the cage by the register and covered it with a blanket to keep her warm at night. What happened next is actually funny. The cage was large enough but the openings on the side of the cage were large enough that she could get through. We found that out when she came upstairs. That’s when we started putting a blanket over top of the cage so she wouldn’t get out at night.

TIGGER ON TOP OF THE CURIO CABINET. TIGGER PASSED AWAY ON 9-11-2015.

We were very fortunate to get to see Daisy Mae’s mother a couple of times. We saw her when Daisy Mae’s mother came to make sure her little kitten had found a good home. Daisy Mae’s Mother was black and white just like Daisy Mae. She was beautiful.

When Daisy Mae got older but still a kitten and bigger, we knew we didn’t want to introduce our senior Tabby cat, Tigger and Daisy Mae who I’ve found out is probably a Tuxedo cat. We knew we had to do something so we discussed several options and the best option was Dad’s idea. He suggested we put up a screen door and lock the Dining room door to separate both cats for a while. This idea worked then after quite some time we finally introduced both cats to each other and the result was just a little hissing from the senior cat and no hissing from Daisy Mae.

Tigger our senior cat who didn’t play and exercise much started playing and exercising again when Daisy Mae started playing with Dad. Tigger’s personality changed too. She mellowed a lot.

Tigger was in her last days and that was becoming more and more obvious by the day and the best we could do is keep Tigger comfortable. Sadly her time came the morning of September 11, 2015 when she went to the Rainbow Bridge. Tigger was a rescued cat too. Tigger was rescued in the sense we got her out of a bad situation. 

I’m happy both cats got furever homes with us. Better yet we still have Daisy Mae 12 years and 15 days. 

I JUST LOVE DAISY MAE!!!!😻😻😻😻😻

 

 

   

RISE OF THE SUPERHEROES

LAUGHTER THE BEST MEDICINE

The world needs laughter and humor in this world and comics about the Rise of the Superheroes brings that. This helps cheer you up whether you need it or not. 

When they say laughter is the best medicine they are not kidding. It is something we are in dire need of with all the evil in this world.

Our people who have mental disease or are just plain depressed should start reading and looking at comics and they might find it might help them.

Am I a doctor? No but I do know laughter helps. If you smile at someone when they are down or mad they will most likely wonder what you are up to not to mention that you get more wrinkles when you frown than when you smile. Also it is easier to smile and doesn’t put as much pressure on your jaw. Would I recommend this book from the excerpt? Yes.

CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S BLOGGER RECOGNITION TAG

BLOGGER RECOGNITION TAG

Usually when you see a tag what’s the first thing that crosses your mind? Well if you’re anything like me, 2 things cross my mind. They are:

  • Why so many links?
  • What, another tag?

I’ve done several tags and if you want to see them you can go to AWARDS. I know the reason or at least I think I do why some don’t do awards and tags and that’s because of so many links, posts and etc… I’ll be honest, I hate the links but don’t mind posting. So Daisy Mae and I(mostly me) came up with an award/tag that has very little stipulations. It’s great (or at least I think so) so I hope you like our tag. Nothing fancy but we don’t want you want you to be disappointed if we don’t give it to you right away because we’ve got so many  to give to were doing it monthly(or at least try that). Below is what our Award/Tag looks like.

bloggif_5b722c048a415

We hope to start giving this award out either tonight or sometime tomorrow. This Award/Tag is to recognize all those good bloggers out there. We have 3 stipulations and you’ll find them below.

  1. Give this Award to at least one blogger.
  2. link to me when you give the award to some other blogger.
  3. Put #CRYSTALANDDAISYMAE’SRECOGNITIONAWARD if you do a post or share.

That’s all you have to do. Easy. No posting. You only have to do a post if you want to.

This is our first time to make an Award/Tag of our own so hope everyone likes it. Keep in mind this Award takes in both of my sites so no one should feel left out.

THANK YOU,

COMPUTER SCAMS

MY EXPERIENCES WITH COMPUTER SCAMS AND ADVICE NOT TO FALL FOR THEM

Today, computer scams of all kinds seem to be popular. Even computer savvy people aren’t immune. It seems like bi-monthly you’re hearing about a scam. If you’re new to computers you may fall for the scams. I grew up without a cell phone or computer and to find that post you can go to Growing Up Without A Computer Or Cell Phone.

SOME of the computer scams I’m familiar with is the “LOGMEIN” Scam, the “Microsoft” scam, the “Anti-Virus” scam, the “Pop-Up/Survey scam, the “Inbox/Trash link scam and many more.

I know my title says my experience and my advice to you so let’s talk about my experiences and my advice of what you should do.

First off, when I first got my first computer I was computer illiterate with the exception of knowing how to run e-mail and turn my computer on/off. I learned by trial and error as I went along. 

Experience #1: “LOGMEIN” Scam – I had these people call about my computer they said they needed remote access(that should’ve been a flag right there to me) but since I was just learning so I wasn’t aware of this. My advice is never give remote access and if you do for some reason, change your password right away so they can’t get access to your computer.

Experience #2: “Anti-Virus” Scam – This can take many forms. Some of the forms you may see is through e-mail, pop-ups or by phone just to name a few. On your computer along the sides or in the center there are advertisements with prices that seem to good to be true. Usually if the price and what they seems to good to be true it usually it is. Also, these scams come by phone sometimes too. This goes with my experience above. My warranty expired and they wanted me to buy it again. I learned from my experience and when I refused to buy their anti-virus program they weren’t happy. Soon after that I took my computer to be checked and they found so many viruses and malware on my computer I was in disbelief. I couldn’t imagine how they got there then it hit me, they were probably planted there. I’ve suspected but can’t prove they did it but they were very angry when I refused to buy their warranty. Soon after that, my computer crashed. My advice is simple never go for the prices on pop-ups there most likely scams. Always do research first.

Experience #3: “Pop-Up/Survey” Scams – Never answer these because most of the time they’re scams.

Experience #4: “Your Microsoft On Your Computer Has Expired” Scam – Someone calls you on the phone and proceeds to tell you Your Microsoft  on your computer has expired. Since I’m on my third computer I’ve learned what’s a scam and what’s not.  It was something to hear but when my mother asked me are you sure? I said yes because Microsoft came with all my computers. I called the place where I got my computer and they said it’s a scam.

Because I was new to computers I fell for the top 3.

What To Do If You Fall For A Scam:

  1. Change All Your Passwords Right Away.
  2. Run a Full computer Scan to make sure no malware or viruses have been planted in your computer.
  3. If the place where you got your computer offers free checkups then take them up on it. You still might want to take your computer for a checkup no matter what. Most of the places make you pay a price. Trust me, it’s worth every penny.

I hope none of you ever fall for a scam but if you do, the above steps can help you. **Please Note** I only mentioned a few things you can do through my experiences.

Please share your experiences if you have any and some tips to follow that I haven’t mentioned.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!
