Has your Gmail chat been blocked at work or school?

Does your Gmail chat sometimes have trouble connecting to the server? Do you get an error message stating:

"We're experiencing technical difficulties that may prevent your chats from being sent."

I have a relatively simple solution for you to try first. It has worked for me and many others... I'm sure there is a way for your IT department to block it this way as well, but if you switch from using 'http' to using 'https' you might have better luck.

So try this link for your Gmail and see if you get better results.

FYI - 'http' passes everything you do in plain text for anyone to intercept and read. 'https' encrypts all your data and passes encrypted for only the recipient who has the proper key to decrypt the data can read it... so it's probably better to do your email in https anyhow. So you kill two birds with one stone... more likely that your Gmail chat will work, plus all your emails and chats are encrypted and safe. Enjoy!

Fight Against the FOCA

I'm not sure I've blogged about this topic yet, but it is a hot one.

Here is my opinion on the topic:
An abortion of any kind is an act of murder... the killing of an innocent life. A direct violation of the sixth commandment, "Thou Shalt Not Kill". This includes rape and incest victims who become pregnant. I know that this last statement about rape and incest victims may seem harsh or cruel, but the innocent human growing inside the mother does not deserve to be punished because of someone else's wrong doings (in my opinion).

Even if you do not agree totally with my opinion and are for hospitals such as faith based one to have the right not to perform abortions you must act now to fight against the FOCA to make sure this does not pass. It is a porely named act in my opinion as it basically is not giving any choices to the humans growing inside the mothers... and forcing faith based hospitals to all support abortions.

I hope that you will join with me in signing this petition to fight against the FOCA.
In the link above you will find the petition to sign to indicate you are against the FOCA. Thanks for your time.

Sea Ice Ends Year at Same Level as 1979 - This is talking about floating Sea Ice, but still seems like another sign that we are actually cooling... not warming.  Just some food for thought.  Enjoy!
