Dose of Hope for You!


PosiText is all about giving you a daily boost, a shot so to speak, of positive thinking through a daily text message. Its a supplemental service that reaches out to you, rather than you reaching out to find something positive. Though PosiText makes it easier for you to fill your glass half full, we still scour the Internet looking for other services and tools that our subscribers may benefit from. We recently stumbled upon a website GivesMeHope.com.

GivesMeHope.com is a website that was launched in response to FMyLife.com. To describe GivesMeHope, its simply put as being the opposite to FMyLife (FML). According to the FML website, it is "a collection of everyday anecdotes and stories likely to happen to anyone and everyone, sent to us exclusively by our users, which we then publish on the site. This is a space where you can let it all out and unwind by sharing the little things that screw with your day, and maybe realize that you are not alone in experiencing day to day crap. / The site is meant to be fun to read and can be enjoyed on a daily basis." Readers Beware: Many of the posts on FML deal with sensitive or raunchy issues, but it in a rather round-about-way, it does provide its users with a satirical way of coping with day-to-day issues.

So it goes without saying that GivesMeHope.com is a collection of everyday stories that 'gives hope' to its readers. One message posted on their website is "I recently cut my hair and donated it to locks of love. As I approached the counter to pay for the haircut, the receptionist informed me that the gentleman who was getting his hair cut a few seats down from me had paid for my haircut. He thought it was a wonderful thing that I was doing and that I shouldn't have to pay to help someone else. GMH."

Hmmmmm... Is Pet Insurance Worth the Money?


The question looms...Is Pet Insurance really worth the money?

The answer to this varies depending on your needs and additude. Obviously your financial situation is the overwhelming factor in the decision making process. There have been just as many published articles praising pet insurance as articles that flat out discredit it. The PRO-position discusses instances where your pet has an underlying medical condition or one or more severe accidents that take place throughout your pets lifetime. Lets face it, if your pet never gets sick or in an accident, pet insurance was not worth it based on financial considerations. But was it still worth it? Keep in mind that insurance is a form of security. We never know in advance that our loved one is going to be in an accident or develop a serious illness. The insurance gives us piece of mind that we have financial assistance and guidance through these unfortunate events.

Pet insurance is a personal decision that you will need to apply to your unique situation. We encourage you to comparison shop different plans and read the fine print. Know what the plan covers and does not cover and the corresponding deductibles. Some plans even provide additional services that can help save money over your pets life, such as reduced cost or free vet visits, cheaper drugs and grooming, etc. One question you should ask yourself is whether or not you have an emergency fund that will help cover any significant event that can occur.

Trapped in the Trunk of a Car? Text Message!

We continue to witness how mobile technology changes our lives. And in some instances, saves it. A man kidnapped at gunpoint and locked in the truck of a car was able to use his phone to get help. Sometimes we get a little cranky when we write the monthly check for our phone bill but we need to remember that its more than a fancy gadget. Its a tool for contacting the appropriate personnel in the times of need.

Are you smarter than a fourth grader?

Can you remember what you were doing when you were nine years old? I recall playing baseball in the church parking lot and reenacting WWF wrestling matches in our front yard. Today's youth are most likely spending their time playing baseball or wrestling on the Xbox, Playstation, or Wii. These types of activities are certainly normal in comparison to the average nine year old, but wait until you hear how Lim Ding Wen from Singapore spends his spare time. Lim writes applications for Apple's iPhone, having recently finished a drawing program that has been downloaded over 4,000 times from the iTune's store.

Lim, now in the fourth grade, has been computing since he was two years old. He is affluent in six different programming languages and has completed over twenty different programming projects. Its not hard to tell where he gets his programming impetus. His father is a chief technology office at a local technology firm and the two often review their statistics in the evening to see who's iPhone application was downloaded more times.

Lim Ding Wen is truly a little genius. Are you smarter than this fourth grader?
