|My daughter was warning her 12yo about a phishing email aimed at Facebook users, which he assured her he knew all about, and the conversation then progressed to spam in general. He asked about "... all these advertisements for things like Viagra and Prozac; I know what Viagra is but what is Prozac?". - Nick Spaulding. |
Good Friday Morning,
Today brings you our weekly "Things To Do Edition" which is chock full of interesting events you'll not likely see posted or advertised elsewhere. Why not pass your copy along to your friends in the area and help News That Matters grow?
And as always, your help and support - or your physical action- is essential to not only keeping News That Matters going and growing but to make the change you're seeking here in Putnam County and the Hudson Valley. There's a lot of good going on but we can make it better.
So, I went to Greg Ball's State Senate campaign rally in Carmel last evening and saw a good number of you there. As you could guess I've written up a status report that's posted to the blogsite here which might be worth a read. Mainstream media reports say "more than 1000" or "1200" but from pictures taken at the event I can only count several hundred. From that report:
Note: Some of the events listed below come from MannaJo Greene's monthly activities calendar, from Sustainable Hudon Valley's Newsnotes and from the NYNJ Trail Conference's website.
