Spam Emails being sent in Disguise

Be careful opening emails. There are email messages being sent that appear to be from AT&T and Verizon (and perhaps other companies) that if clicked on take the recipient to another, perhaps malicious, website.

To check authenticity, let your cursor hover over a link to see if it directs to the company it purports to be from, or to another website that you don’t recognize. CAUTION: If your cursor is set to access the link after hovering for a second or two, don’t do it.


Merritt Watson Turns 70!

Bethany held a luncheon last Sunday after worship in honor of Merritt Watson on his 70th birthday anniversary. After Merritt’s recent altercations with a steel girder and other head-hunting objects, the perfect gift was obvious: a hardhat. But it was such an obvious present, that he received two!

A beautiful cake
A couple of hardhats
And good food, of course.
