Hope you enjoy it, Meg. Both my husband and I liked it. Although I knew they were setting the boy up with the man, I really didn't know what was coming next & enjoyed the journey.

Force WordPress to use SSL using your .htaccess file. This was a good "last step" for me. I downloaded my database, searched and replaced "http://jeanegan.com" to "https://jeanegan.com", re-uploaded it and then changed the http to https in the WordPress interface. That got all my pages and images to be SSL, but it didn't force my home page/first visit to the site to SSL. Adding the 2 lines below did that. Done.

After: RewriteEngine On
I added:
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.example.com/$1 [R,L]

Happy holidays to everyone :)

Also, sorry 'bout this, but it's become a yearly tradition for me to "enjoy" this l'il beauty.

I understand not having enough. Sharing to amplify Sallie's message.
 
I haven't been saying anything about this in public because Belovèd Spousal Unit really likes his online privacy, but he has just given me permission to share his condition publicly. This is where we have been since the middle of August: generating tons of medical bills while unable to generate any income to pay them. We have no savings left, we are literally living on handouts right now, and we have at least two more surgeries coming up in the next year — or more if the retina repaired last week re-detaches, which is fairly likely.

If you can help at all, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. If you too are scraping the barrel on funds yourself, just sharing this on where it might catch someone else's generous eyes is a help.

And for the love of little green apples, if you experience any sudden upsurge of flashes and floaters in your eyes, RUN, do not walk, to an eyecare professional! We have been blessed beyond measure with the quality of care he has received from Retina Group of Washington, but the outcome would have been so much brighter if only he had recognized the symptoms and gotten care for the first eye while the damage was still fresh.
In August 2016, I started to lose my eyesight. Apparently I'd already lost most of the sight in my left eye and was compensating wit the left eye as well, h my right... and then my right eye started to go as well. The short and brutal diagnosis: detached retinas in both eyes, dark cataract in the...

My excitement for the day: (yes, I'm boring!) Driving home from a hike today, I was checking how well I was doing with my MPG and inadvertently changed my speedometer from miles per hour to kilometers per hour.

I didn't realize right away but felt a little dizzy when I looked down at my speedometer and it was reporting "55" when I knew damned well I wasn't going more than the 35 that it had just been reporting.

What a freak out - to see 55 while driving on a business road. It took me a little bit to get my bearings and realize that it was km. I just continued to drive moderately ...and hopefully within the posted speed limits for each road! When I got home I found out how to change it back. Easy-peasy.

Wow. Respect for black ladies & what they go through for "good hair". I'm going to make a point to complement ladies who are sporting their natural hair more. Nobody should have to go through the chemicals (and chemical burns!) of relaxing their hair or the exorbitant expense of a weave. (Lower end $1000 for just the hair, not the beautician's time.)

Also enlightening to see that India's biggest export is human hair. How is this hair gathered? Conveniently, through religious ceremonies.

Just started watching this. Chris Hemsworth doesn't make for a convincing hacker to me. I'm giving it a chance, nonetheless. Wish me luck.

Hi Oz!

Ugh, not at all. I was hoping for something as good as Mr. Robot!

Do you have a WordPress site that you don't have FTP access to but need to view/edit/download theme or plugin files? (This gives you access to all files in the public_html directory.)

Woah. Perception tricks - just like magicians! Disrupt the normal flow of things and people's minds try to align with what they know rather than react in a timely manner to what's really going on. This allows a magician - or a crook to take advantage of someone. This explanation of disruption of the status-quo makes sense to me.

(Derren Brown has some good videos explaining the psychology of disruption of social expectations.)

Some people are content to make sense of a situation based on past experience while others can call it. Most are in the first group and don't recognize it right away - and if they do see what happens, but too late, perhaps pride keeps them from admitting they were fooled.

I admit I was not born "awake" to this sort of stuff, but I have been examining this with regards to street magic and it didn't occur to me that is what is happening in our government. Crazy stuff. Ugh ...and dangerous stuff.

Thanks again to a friend for sharing this privately.
While it's important to watch the president-elect closely, we also must be mindful of our own response to him.

There has been a definite affect since Nov. 8th. A mass change in the psychology of millions. It just asks study.

Watching Bitter Lake on +Marla Caldwell and +Meg L's recommendation. 15 minutes in and it's very interesting, indeed.

Well that's convenient! I feel badly the same way if I jump ahead in any shows we're watching together, so I mostly don't do that, but the documentaries I just watch with the furry kids or my kids if they come up to visit.

My review is for a recent phone call. I sat on the phone line on eternal hold for 15 minutes, got disconnected and called back immediately. They had closed and apparently anyone on hold just got disconnected. Bah. Sounds like they should hire more people to help around "open enrollment".

My husband and I have been going here for a number of years (7-8 years?) now and enjoy the food at Ming Bao. We have recently been enjoying the ability to try different combinations that aren't even on the menu. They're pleasant and very receptive to our crazy requests and always seem to do a very good job.

The "Please wait to be served" sign was off to the side, unseen by us when we entered, so we went to find a table and were scolded to wait to be seated. We walked back to the front door and they showed us to a small table that abutted the back of a booth which was fine until a party of 3 sat down and the back of a man's head was in my husband's face. Thankfully we could move to the next small table over, but between that, the static/tinny radio playing loudly from the speakers above, our breakfast sandwiches couldn't come soon enough. We waited for about 25 minutes to get the sandwiches. *They tasted good but not worth the wait or the loud surroundings.* I guess it would be OK if you have kids and you're used to having to be around loud kids and loud radio, but it wasn't for me. I won't be back. I tried this twice and both times were not enjoyable.

A nice quiet (small) place to meet friends & get tasty food. Pleasant and relatively quick service. Their sign out front was down when I first went here so it was hard to find. If you're not familiar with where they are, you may want to find it on Google maps and get a visual on the outside of the building. *Bonus:* I see they have the inside photographed on Google maps, so you can see what the place looks like on the inside as well before you go.
