Managing Your Kindle

Have you recently purchased a Kindle, but don't know how to upload books for it? Maybe you've seen a book in a blog that you've wanted to purchase, but you don't know how to get it onto your Kindle.

The first thing you need to do is to set up an Amazon account. Simply go to and set up an account. Once you have an account set up, click on Kindle, located under the orange Shop All Departments section on the main page. At the bottom of Kindle slide-out box, you will find Manage Your Kindle. Click it.

You will then need to register your Kindle. Find the serial number located on the first page of the Settings screen on your Kindle and enter it on the screen in the box allocated for a serial number. Then click, Register a new Kindle.

After you register the Kindle, you can purchase books directly from your Kindle or from blogs you read. Any purchase you make will be auto-delivered wirelessly to your Kindle.

The Kindle also comes with hundreds of free books as well. Enjoy and Happy Reading!

Should Welfare Recipients Have To Pass Drug Tests In Order To Receive Benefits?

  I don't generally post emails I've received, but this one warrants some attention. I am a proponent for government help when the people who receive the help DESERVE the help. Fraudulent claims cost everybody money and unfortunately not enough people monitor the situation to prevent the people who least deserve help from getting it.

When I received this email from my mother, I couldn't help but think about all the people in dire need of assistance who live next door to people who lied their way through the system to get undeserved money from the government, whether it was welfare or disability.

People who stay home in a drug-induced stupor collecting money when they are perfectly capable of working are contributing to this country's deficit. 

Yes, the money these people receive from the government is more than they would receive at a job that pays minimum wage, especially when you consider the cost of child care, but unless we help these people get a college education that further helps them succeed in making enough money to pay for just the necessities, we will always have people who continue to receive aid.

But aiding people whose only goal is to sell and/or take drugs benefits no one, not even them. So when I read the following email, I couldn't help but agree. And I wanted to pass it along. Here is the email:

Interesting proposition!
Like most folks in this country,
I had a job.  I worked, they paid me.
I paid my taxes & the government distributed my taxes 
as it saw fit.

In order to get that paycheck, in my case, I was required to
pass a random urine test (with which I had no problem). 

What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people
who don't have to pass a urine test. 
So, here is my question:
Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because
I had to pass one to earn it for them?

Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet.
I did, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their
BUTT---doing drugs while I worked.

Can you imagine how much money each state would save if people
had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check? 
I guess we could call the program "URINE OR YOU'RE OUT"!

Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't. Hope you all will
pass it along, though.
Something has to change in this country - AND SOON!
P.S. Just a thought, all politicians should have to pass a urine test too!
Don't you just love the title of the program?
