Information worth reading...
A MESSAGE FROM THE OFFICE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL STATE OF MICHIGAN:
While driving on a rural end of the roadway on Thursday morning, I saw
an infant car seat on the side of the road with a blanket draped over
For whatever reason, I did not stop, even though I had all kinds of
thoughts running through my head. But when I got to my destination, I
called the Canton PD and they were going to check it out. But, this is
what the Police advised even before they went out there to check...
"There are several things to be aware of... Gangs and thieves are now
plotting different ways to get a person (mostly women) to stop their
vehicle and get out of the car.
There is a gang initiation reported by the local Police Department
where gangs are placing a car seat by the road...with a fake baby in
it....waiting for a woman, of course, to stop and check on the
Note that the location of this car seat is usually beside a wooded or
grassy (field) area and the person - woman - will be dragged into the
woods, beaten and raped, and usually left for dead. If it's a man,
they're usually beaten and robbed and maybe left for dead, too.
DO NOT STOP FOR ANY REASON! DIAL 9-1-1 AND REPORT WHAT YOU SAW, BUT
DON'T EVEN SLOW DOWN.
Oh yea, about the EGGS:
IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND EGGS ARE THROWN AT YOUR WINDSHIELD,
DO NOT STOP TO CHECK YOUR CAR, DO NOT OPERATE THE WIPERS AND DO NOT
SPRAY ANY WATER BECAUSE EGGS MIXED WITH WATER BECOME MILKY, AND BLOCK
YOUR VISION UP TO 92.5%, AND YOU ARE THEN FORCED TO STOP BESIDE THE
ROAD AND BECOME A VICTIM OF THESE CRIMINALS.
THIS IS A NEW TECHNIQUE USED BY GANGS, SO PLEASE INFORM YOUR FRIENDS AND
THESE ARE DESPERATE TIMES AND THESE ARE UNSAVORY INDIVIDUALS WHO WILL
TAKE DESPERATE MEASURES TO GET WHAT THEY WANT."
Please talk to your loved ones about this. This is a tactic being
used. Please be safe.
WARNING # 3:
Some knew about the red light on cars, but didn’t know about Dialing
112. It was about 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon, and Lauren was driving
to visit a friend. An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put
his lights on. Lauren’s parents have always told her to never pull
over for an
unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather to wait until they
get to a gas station, etc.
Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly
called 112 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she
would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the
dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red
light on his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if
there were police cars where she was and there weren't, and he told
her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back up already on
Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car
behind her. One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded
the car behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to
the ground. The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other
I never knew about the 112 Cell P hone feature. I tried it on my AT&T
phone & it said, "Dialing Emergency Number." Especially for a woman
alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarked car.
Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going on to a
*Speaking to a service representative at Bell Mobility confirmed that
112 was a direct link to State trooper info. So, now it's your turn
to let your friends know about " Dialing 112 " This applies to ALL 50
You may want to send this to every Man, Woman & Youngster you know;
it may well save a life.
HAVE A NICE DAY...........

This is my grandmother... my father's mother, Gramma Chamberlin. I use to call her Big Gramma only because my other gramma was only 4' 6" tall, she was from Palermo, Sicily and Big Gramma was from Dusseldorf Germany.
Big Gramma was a great cook and the potato pancakes recipe below I remember my dad teaching me how to cook them learning from his mother of course. This wonderful woman passed on when I was only seven years old, but I remember her as if it was yesterday me sitting on her lap coloring. Yes, that is us below dressed up for Halloween, and that's my brother Junior. Gramma always had a smile for me. I love and miss you Gramma!
GERMAN POTATO PANCAKES

Pinch of pepper
Mix all ingredients to make a batter. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a hot skillet.
Pour batter (1/4 cup at a time) into the oil. Spread to
