Got this via e-mail.

I liked it

While visiting England, George W. Bush is invited to tea with the Queen. He asks her what her leadership philosophy is. She says that it is to surround herself with intelligent people. He asks how she knows if they're intelligent.

"I do so by asking them the right questions," says the Queen. "Allow me to demonstrate."

She phones Tony Blair and says, "Mr. Prime Minister. Please answer this question: Your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or sister. Who is it?"

Tony Blair responds, "It's me, ma'am."

"Correct. Thank you and good-bye, sir," says the Queen. She hangs up and says, "Did you get that, Mr. Bush?"

"Yes ma'am. Thanks a lot. I'll definitely be using that!"

Upon returning to Washington, he decides he'd better put the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to the test. He summons Jesse Helms to the White House and says, "Senator Helms, I wonder if you can answer a question for me."

"Why, of course, sir. What's on your mind?"

"Uh, your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"

Helms hems and haws and finally asks, "Can I think about it and get back to you?" Bush agrees, and Helms leaves. He immediately calls a meeting of other senior senators, and they puzzle over the question for several hours, but nobody can come up with an answer. Finally, in desperation, Helms calls Colin Powell at the State Department and explains his problem.

"Now look here Colin Powell, your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother, or your sister. Who is it?" Powell answers immediately, "It's me, of course, you dumb ass."

Much relieved, Helms rushes back to the White House and exclaims, "I know the answer, sir! I know who it is! It's Colin Powell!" And Bush replies in disgust, "Wrong, you dumb ass, It's Tony Blair!"

You have probably taught your child not to talk to strangers, and in many situations, they would remember this. But the Internet is different.
Due to the Internet's anonymity, strangers are talking to children all the time. They try to gain the child's trust by having friendly conversation at first, but over time, their true objective of sexually soliciting the child becomes evident.
What can today's parent do? Armed with information, there's quite a bit a parent can do.

Over the past year, one Collingsworth County teen had
been corresponding over the Internet with an adult
across the state, unknown to the juveniles parents.
This can be prevented in your home by
using parental control software on your computer and
by continuously having knowledge of what your child
does on the web.

MySpace.com: Never heard of it? Just ask your kids. They know.

It's a cyber secret some of them like to keep from their tech-challenged parents.
Police say in some cases sexual predators are using that information to find kids.
One Internet safety expert said for a pedophile, it can be "one stop shopping by catalogue."

Hi my name is Jeff.
Did you Know...............
1 out of 5 kids has been sexually solicited online (NOT JUST GIRLS).
1 out of 4 kids has been sent a picture of naked people or people having sex online.
That May 21, 2002 there was the first death of a child linked directly to an Internet Predator?
Every one would love the world to be perfect and great but with the good come the bad. All we can do is hope for the best and be proactive in preventing the bad things from happening. I can tell you that we think we know what our kid are thinking and doing. Do not be one of the parents that says my child would never do that ( they are kids and will try things even when you tell them not to do it).
My little brothers and sister are a good example! They had it made........My father and stepmother had a little computer knowledge but not much ( at this time in the past the only things you had to really worry about was internet porn because chat rooms, messengers and blogs were not around or very few were) and they tried to do there best to keep them from going to internet porn. THEY DID NOT!!! They thought they did but my brothers were smarter than my parents and could erase their tracks.

I was searching blogs so that I could compare them to the blog I am writing. It was refreshing to find a well maintained sight. I look forward to seeing the changes in the future.
It made it an enjoyable place to visit.
