Put your phone on ICE

“Clark recently talked about ICE, "In Case of Emergency."  And so many people have been asking him about it, that he wanted to revisit the issue.  The idea was developed by a paramedic in Britain because no one knows who to call when you're injured or hurt.  All you do is enter a list of emergency contacts under the letter "I" [under the word "ICE"] in your address list.  Then, if you're hanging on to life, these will people will be able to answer questions about your medical conditions and your wishes for organ donation and right to life.”

Note:  I contacted Captain Eric Jackson, the Public Information Officer for DeKalb County Fire & Rescue Services, to learn if DeKalb personnel are aware of "ICE" and find it useful.  Capt. Jackson replied via email, “Thank you Jenni.  I will pass this along to our members.”

Claim Your Money

”How would you like to find some free money?  It may sound like the start of a scam, but this one is for real.  There are billions of dollars hanging around out there – unclaimed – that could be yours.  It could be money from an insurance policy, an old bank account, or even a small inheritance.”  A few of the websites mentioned in Clark Howard Show Notes are:


unclaimed.org  (Using this site, we helped our family find "lost" money.  Jenni)

Here’s a great tip from neighbor, Willis M.:  “How to copy without all the clutter.” 

Here’s an interesting site from neighbor, Mark R.:  Windows Live Local  View your street!

Here’s a fun site from neighbor, Paul W.:  PocketMod  It’s the paper alternative to the PDA (Personal Data Assistant/Pocket Computer) and a free disposable personal organizer.  Give it a try!
