It does make you think!

It does make you think!


Question 1:
If you knew a woman who was pregnant,
Who had 8 kids already,
Three who were deaf,
Two who were blind,
One mentally retarded,
And she had syphilis,
Would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Read the next question before looking at the response for this one…


Question 2:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts,
here are the facts about the three candidates- AB, and C:

Candidate A: 
Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists,
He’s had two mistresses,
He also chain smokes,
And drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B: 
He was kicked out of office twice,
Sleeps until noon,
Used opium in college,
And drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C: 
He is a decorated war hero.
He’s a vegetarian,
Doesn’t smoke,
Drinks an occasional beer, and never committed adultery.

Which of these candidates would be your choice?

Decide first … No peeking, and then scroll down for the response.





Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question:


If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven.

Pretty interesting isn’t it?

Makes a person think before judging someone.


Amateurs … Built the Ark.
Professionals … Built the Titanic.



Making Sure TLS 1.2 is Being Used

Making Sure TLS 1.2 is Being Used

Even if your flowerSoft is using the latest version of the credit card approval program, which uses TLS 1.2, your computer may still be using TLS 1.0.

To make sure your computers are using TLS 1.2 during credit card approvals and not TLS 1.0, bring up you Internet Explorer (I am using Internet Explorer 11) and follow these steps …


  1. Click on “Tools”



2. Click on “Internet Options”



3. Click on the “Advanced” tab



4. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the security section options and make sure “Use TLS 1.0” is un-checked and make sure “Use TLS 1.2” is checked.

Remember that as of July 1st, 2018, computers still using TLS 1.0 will not be able to get credit card approvals.


If You Have Any of These…

If You Have Any of These…

If you have any computers running Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 8, Windows has support for TLS 1.2 but it is disabled by default and you might need to enable it.  Here is how…

Internet Explorer


The following window should appear… click on Internet options


Now this window will pop up…click on Advanced


Next, this window will display…


Scroll to the bottom of the window and make sure the “Use TLS 1.2” option is checked.
If it is not, check it.

After you are done, close the windows by hitting the red “x”.
That is all you have to do.

If you use Chrome as your web browser, the use of TLS 1.2 should be automatic.
I don’t think there is a way for you to set that option.

Of course, you also have to have flowerSoft’s latest version of the credit card approval program.
