Who Let the horses out?

When I was a kid, my parents had a small hobby farm. I would have been four, one summer, when Mom went out the door to hang out some laundry, and a pony came in and started eating an apple pie that was cooling on the cupboard. She had left the door opened of course. If you watch the video below, you will see this horse doesn't care whether or not the door has been left opened.

The video along with the article was posted on the Huffington Post. You can read it here.

Dr. Evelyn Hanggi of the Equine Research Foundation says:

"Common beliefs maintain that horses have a brain the size of a walnut; horses do not think; horses are merely conditioned-response animals; horses cannot generalize; horses have no sense of concept," she said in a 2011 report on Horsetalk.co.nz. "In reality, horses manage not only ordinary daily cognitive tasks but mental challenges as well."

Spyware and Malware Removal

malware-featuredMost people have virus protection software installed on their computers. This does a reasonable job protecting them from viruses, but it doesn't do much in the way of protecting them from other malware programs. A virus is a program that can replicate itself and spread to other machines across the Internet.. I can do things like delete file sand reformat your hard drive.

Adware, is a program that gets downloaded onto your computer and starts displaying ads when you are connected to the Internet.

Spyware collects information about you and transmits it to interested parties.

Browser hijacking software, which is one many have been accustomed to being infected with installs toolbars and ads in your browser and changes your default search provider.

All of these programs are malware, but in most cases it's only viruses that get quarantined by your virus protection software. And while these others types aren't as serious, if you don't get rid of them they compromise your security and suck the memory out of your computer. Eventually, you see your computer taking longer to do certain tasks. It takes longer to boot up programs, browsers, and the computer becomes sluggish. Worse yet, errors start cropping up in programs you're running, all due to the fact that your computer is struggling to find enough memory to complete the operations, but the malware is using to much of your systems memory.

spy-ebookPeople will often take their computers into a tech shop every so often to have it cleaned out. But in most cases you can do this yourself and save yourself some money. A book being offered free today as an Amazon promotion is called DIY: Spyware Removal. It shows you how to install the 3 most popular anti-malware programs and gives you step-by-step instructions, with screenshots for every step. It's a very useful guide for anyone who finds it difficult to install programs.

The book provides links where you can download Spybot, Ad-aware Antivirus, and MalwareBytes. But do not download the programs from those links. The links all lead to the popular software repository called Cnet, and it isn't safe to download the programs from there. When you click on a link to download the program you want at Cnet, you are actually installing their installer program. It installs its own malware on your computer, so you're defeating the purpose. You're better off to the download the programs from here:

MalwareBytes requires you to register before you download their program, but it's safe enough to do so. They don't fill up your inbox with a lot of useless spam.

If you need the step-by-step instructions, get DIY: Spyware Removal while it's free today. But use it for a reference only. Download the programs from the links above.

In fact why not turn lots of your hobbies into cash cows? This book has advice from people in all walks of life, people who have been at rock bottom and found a way back up!  With 108 great ideas, there has to be one that is right for you, or someone you know and want to help to have a better life.

Please keep in mind, this is a not a "get rich quick" manaal showing you how to waste hundreds of dollars on products or services that won't do anything for you or anyone else. This book has great solid information in it. I had no more then flipped the cover in it, when I instantly realized how my wife (back in the days I was married) could have realistically saved $5,000.00 per year. And that was only looking at one idea! This book has 107 more.

Besides all of the ways she will show you how to save money, there are easy  ways explained how you can make extra, that most people don't think of.

This gives her a sympathetic insider position, as a caring mentor, to assist others in taking the required steps toward their own success, avoiding the pitfalls and the costs of inexperience.

cash-cover-ebookOne of her reviewers, Kerry Haddon, said "The number of common sense money making ideas in this book is really awesome. If you cannot earn extra cash from reading this book, you never will! So many practical applications- things you may never have thought of, are bubbling out of this book. The author writes with a warm message of really wanting to help people achieve extra cash. Whilst some of the ideas are not new, (many are), the fact that they are all together in one place is so handy and helpful. The income and expenses chart really is an eye opener and gives the reader a check of where they are at. I loved the ideas re garage sales, and especially the chapter on using your current resources. I am buying this book for all of my friends- the ideas are brilliant, the messages are clear yet achievable. This really is a little gem of a book. If you know anybody who wants to earn more cash, then this is one of the most practical, full of ideas book, that everyone can gain from. Highly recommended."
