Eliminating Cancer

A forwarded email from a colleague caught my interest and I would like to share the information with you.


1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.
3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

Inspiring Story

I received another story forwarded by my lovely sister Lorie from Japan.  It gave me goose bumps so I want to share it here in my blog.

"One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.  He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house.  However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water.  She thought he looked hungry so she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?"

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt; stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Years later that young woman became critically il…

Add your contacts to autocomplete in Outlook

Did you recently buy a new computer and transferred all your emails but when you type a name into a new email the contact you want does not automatically show?  It is called autocomplete in Outlook.

If you transferred all your contacts from the old computer successfully, you can easily restore your autocomplete list by creating a new email and adding all emails in your contact list in the to: field.  You do not have to send the email.  Just close it and open a new email and try typing one email address which is in your contacts.

Sometimes we mistype the email address and it shows in the autocomplete list.  To delete the wrong email, just use the arrow key to go to the wrong email and press delete.  In Outlook 2010, you can put your mouse over the wrong email, an X mark will appear after the wrong email.  Just click X to delete the wrong email.
