Worth a try:  Restless leg syndrome and nightly leg cramps can often be treated by putting a bar of soap under your sheets!

42% of people who suffer from restless leg syndrome or nightly leg cramps have found putting soap under their sheet helps treat their pain. Doctors believe this is because of the magnesium in the soap, which can help reduce leg cramps.

FYI: Dr. Oz suggests that lavender soap helps relax your body while you’re trying to sleep, so it’s your best option. While it may sound like a myth, there are people who have tried this method and praise its effectiveness.

Restless leg syndrome is a neurological disorder where a person feels discomfort in their legs while resting. Leg cramps normally occur because of excessive exercise, mineral and vitamin deficiencies, and dehydration.   https://goo.gl/qzAz3e

 

SCAM Alert:  Reports of telemarketers from an organization called themselves “Breast Cancer Services” are asking for money donations over the phone.

This is a scam…

The phone number in question appears with a 919 area code.

When people decline to donate, the caller gets angry and hangs up.

BTW: There is NO group in NC with the name “Breast Cancer Services

TIPS:  If any charity reaches out to you asking for money, do your research,

Go online and look for a website, Twitter and Facebook page associated with that group. Check websites like “Guide Star” or “Charity Navigator” that assess how non-profits spend their money.

Don’t be afraid to ask the caller questions…

If you get a call that is suspicious: write down the phone number and call police.

FYI:  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month   https://goo.gl/dum9rC

 

 

How to disable the Bixby button on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8

In three easy steps: If you’re not familiar, Bixby is Samsung’s virtual assistant. Using voice commands, users can ask Bixby to complete tasks like taking photos and setting reminders. Here’s the problem: Samsung has a Bixby key on its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 devices that many people are accidentally pressing, which causes Bixby to take over the screen.  It’s easy to mistakenly hit the Bixby button because it’s right below the volume down button. Disable details here:     SOURCE: Clark Howard  https://goo.gl/LVeLDQ
