On Star

I hadn't thought much about OnStar that little button in most new cars that lets you talk to someone if you get lost or need help. Then While watching an episode of COPS, I saw that the police can call onstar and tell them to turn the car off remotely. What?

OnStar can control those cars, seriously?

When you crash, they can turn the speaker on and talk to you also and call for help. But what if they just want to listen in on conversations because they are bored. You know there are always bad apples in every sort of job and I'm sure this kind of thing has happened more than once.

I was thinking and i think if I ever get a new car that has ONStar in it, I will disable it, completely take it out. I don't want someone else having the capability to remotely turn my car off, listen in on my conversations or record my conversations if they get a search warrant or a tap warrant for my car/phone.

I wonder how many times this has already happened.

A Valentine's Day Story

We all like stories, right? Well, I thought I would share one with you.

In early 1989 a girl name Melissa *not her real name* decides she's had enough of life and is going to end her's. After going to the hospital, getting her stomach pumped she is asked to sign herself voluntarily into the Psychiatric hospital where she meets John *not his real name*

John tried to end his life and ended up in the same place as Melissa. They become fast friends and after several months in the Psychiatric Hospital and lots of therapy they get out and start dating. Even though all their doctors and therapists tell them their relationship won't work, they know it will.

A year later they visit their doctor's and therapists with their newborn baby, everyone seems very happy for them but they are still afraid they might have problems with their depression.

It's now 2010 and their baby daughter is 18 years old, and the couple who met in the Psychiatric hospital have been happily together for 20 years.

You see, this is a true's my and ken's story. I found my soul-mate all those years ago in the last place I ever thought I would find him. We completed each other in a way nothing else could and we've never been happier.

Keep your eyes open, your heart will find that special one you were meant to be with, even if you aren't looking for them.

Happy Valentine's Day
