It's going around again!

A quick heads up to all the folks who read this. An email (copy of is listed below) is going around, supposedly from the Australian Red Cross, warning of some HIV infected needles being found in public places.

The email is a hoax.

If you go to the Red Cross web site (http://www.redcross.org.au/) you will see on the bottom under the heading Important Notice, a message regarding this hoax.

Please remember, if you ever receive a message like this, check with official sources before passing it on.

Can everyone who reads this pass it on? I'd like this stopped as quickly as possible.

Enjoy

Copy of original email:

> Subject: Fw: HIV warning via Red Cross Blood Service

>*PLEASE READ*
>A few weeks ago in a movie theatre in Melbourne a person sat on something
>that was poking out of one of the seats. When she got up to see what it was
> she found a needle sticking out of the seat with a note attached saying...
> "You have just been infected by HIV".
>
> The Disease Control Centre in Melbourne reports many similar incidents have

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
