Beware of BT Alert Email Scam

IMPORTANT: Alert about your billing information on file



I recently got this email and thought this really came from BT, but when I clicked the link provided, my computer warned me that this has been reported as a an email hoax. So I went to the BT website to check this out and found a way to confirm if this really came from them.

I did that procedure and found out that the email address is not from BT, so I have reported this to BT! Also, I have checked my BT account and found out that my recent payment was successful and recorded. So if you got this BT Alert email, do not click the link!

Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro

Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro also known as Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro SK17i is a great android phone, comes with 512MB phone memory and a 2GB SD card (but is expandable up to 32GB). Amazingly fast as this runs on 1Ghz processor and running the latest Android 2.3 platform. Also capable of recording HD movies and the screen is a scratch proof mobile Bravia, I would say the picture quality is actually very good!

What I like this phone is that it has a QWERTY keyboard, which enables me to type faster compare to the ordinary phone keyboard or on an on-screen keyboard. It can also be use to tether with your laptop or use it as a modem, all you have to do is connect your phone via USB cable to your laptop-desktop and share your 3G internet from the phone to a computer. You can find this on the settings on your xperia mini pro, under the wireless & network section.

Battery is ok, when used a lot on internet, it would only last a day, but with a little facebook use and email checks, it would give you a reasonable 2 days use. I actually like the phone due to its size and style and my husband does too, so he swapped my Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro to his Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray. Anyway, the xperia mini pro is not as pricey as some other android phone so I would recommend it to anyone who wants a cheaper android phone that works brilliantly with mobile internet, music and some apps. Compact although a little heavy compare to other android phones, but it does not really matter as it looks really great for its price!

Useful info:
• Android 2.3 OS Gingerbread
• 3 inch colour display
• 5 Mp digital camera with auto-focus and LED flash
• HD video recording
• Front-facing webcam
• Micro SD memory card slot (up to 32Gb)

Walgreens: Helping People save money on prescription medicines

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

I believe that our health is what matters most, which is why on this blog post, I would like to tell you how you can save on prescription medicines as well as some other purchases on Walgreens. Now, I am not sure if you are aware that Walgreens has this prescription savings club, which allows you to receive discounts on your prescriptions and savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic Medications. It also includes discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions (if you got one), nebulizers and diabetic supplies.  On top of that, you will also receive bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photofinishing services.

Now to enjoy all those wonderful benefits, first you have to join in the Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens. The price of becoming a member is remarkable cheap! In fact; Walgreens is offering a special discount on annual membership until January 31, 2012 for $5 per individual and $10 for a family membership. Not bad savings, as the actual price of the said membership is $20 for individuals and $35 for families!

Well done Walgreens! This is another brilliant way of helping individuals and as well as families get through the tough times. So to help support Walgreens on their good deeds of helping others, you can do your part too, by telling families and friends about their prescription savings club. To get more information on their products and services, you can visit their website or get updates by liking Walgreens on Facebook and follow Walgreens on Twitter.

Seven Sacred Ways to Live Your Best Life

(This is an email received from a Christian friend, I do like this very much, that is why I am sharing this on my blog as well.) Graduates of online Christian colleges may find the post particularly enlightening.


Consider these words of wisdom that Jesus offered for living your best life.

1. Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. (Matthew 6:34) Too often in life (and especially around Christmas), we worry about issues that work themselves out over time. Worrying does not change anything. It is a waste of time, energy, and life itself. Plan your steps, but refuse to allow the fear of what might go wrong to consume you. Instead, focus on what you can do in the present moment to create the kind of future you want.

2. Do not judge and you will not be judged. (Luke 6:37) There may be people in your life who are doing things you don't agree with, perhaps even engaging in behavior that is destructive to them. Choose to love them and pray for them, without judgment. Choose compassion and empathy, perhaps even tough love, but reserve judgment.

3. Be careful not to do your acts of righteousness before men, to be seen by them. (Matthew 6:1) Be careful to do good and treat people well because it is the right thing to do, not because of the accolades or rewards you might receive from others. Allow the Holy Spirit to be in full control, so that your motives are pure.

4. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. (Matthew 23:12) Humility is freedom - freedom from the pressure to be perfect, keep up appearances, or be better than everyone else. Success is a combination of working hard and being blessed with opportunities, abilities, and people who support you. None of us achieves or succeeds solely by our own power. Don't worry about taking credit or making yourself look good. Focus on serving, learning, and loving, and then the rewards will come.

5. Everything is possible for him who believes. (Mark 9:23) Consider your biggest dream for your life. It is not enough to say you will achieve it. You must believe it. You may not know exactly how it will become true for you. Your first step is to simply believe it's possible. Say it out loud and often, “It's possible!” With God, all things are possible.

6. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) Most know this scripture as a foundational statement for the Christian faith, which it is. But there is something I find intriguing in its wording. It is the connection between loving and giving. God loved us; therefore, he gave us this miraculous Savior Jesus Christ. When you love others, you give of yourself, sometimes in very unselfish and sacrificial ways. Saying you love someone is not enough. Give of yourself - your time, energy, affection, and resources and they will truly know you love them.

7. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32) The truth sets you free in many ways. Be truthful with yourself about the issues of your life. Speak your truth in your relationships. Countless relationships fail because people refuse to speak from their hearts. Be truthful about what you want and what you are afraid of, and you will gain the strength to step fully into the rich, abundant life you were created to live.

Seek divine wisdom to guide your interactions with others and the decisions you need to make. Choose to live and love fully and freely. God gave His sacred Son to us. Let’s live our best life for Him.
Have a blessed day!

“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” 2 Corinthians 9:15
"Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not, as so many, peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ." 2 Corinthians 2:14-17
