FYI.
 
Well that's worrying.

I've been an avid reader all my life and, when I was a child, there were never enough books in my world. This story really touched me.

Same here, Don. Not having books to read has always been intolerable.
Today, I have both paper books and ebooks. Each has its advantage, the ebook has its own light and can hold thousands of books, a paper book's battery never dies and is far more robust than the electronic variety.

Heh, yesterday I got my library card. I was away from home for so long, my previous library card had a metal plate on it, to emboss the loan slip. Now, I can order books from other libraries and download ebooks as well.
The librarian and I chuckled over the changes over time and how long it's been since I was last there.

I'm wondering if I'm a better person today than yesterday. Can't hurt to try.
Each day is a new opportunity to grow. Each day we can be better than yesterday. Here's how to be the best version of yourself today.

It's fast, it's easy, it's effective.
In July 2015 a Minnesota man allegedly payed a park ranger £36,000 ($55,000) to kill one of Africa's most famous lions. Cecil, who was about 13-years-old and part of a protected species, was lured out of Zimbabwe's biggest national park and then shot with a bow and arrow by the tourist. The hunter then spent two days tracking the animal before killing it with a rifle.The corpse was then found skinned with the head butchered off along with a t...

Fast and easy would be an extradition treaty.
Prohibiting trophy hunting also prohibits hunters from making a trophy of an animal that they ate for food.
That starves some rural areas in this nation and many, many others.
Prohibit all hunting of endangered species. Even on private property.

Frankly, we should extradite him and let him face the time for the crime there. Their prisons are not very nice places.

Please share, my People. Your friends and neighbors are being scammed. When it happens you don't always hear about it because they are embarrassed, but scamming on this level can hurt the ones you care about the most, and who have so little that this can propel them into poverty.
 
Sometimes, all we have is each other.

Most of you know, Diane and I found a 55+ regulated rental community and we like it here. A lot. And of course, most of us here are retired or living on disability or SSI. In that the population here is mostly 60 and over, we're sitting wide open for the Microsoft scam.

No, Microsoft isn't running the scam, but people claiming to be from Microsoft are. Let me tell you about just how vulnerable people my age and older are. We are the Trusting Generation. We take people and things at face value. We give everyone a grade of A+ and then we sit back and let them grade themselves.

Sometimes, this is what our trust gets us. Pass it along.

I've gotten those calls before. I play stupid at first, can't find the keys they're talking about, the command didn't work, giving fake error codes, etc.
Eventually, I'm asked what computer I'm using.
I've said Cray, I've said Quantum, I've even said Deep Thought.
The former being a supercomputer, the middle being a quantum computer of which only one exists in a primitive version and the latter a tip of the hat to the Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy.
Of course, I am indeed hitting keys. Tracing their network paths, noting version and OS of server they're using, country the server is in, etc.
Once, the fellow was so diligent and insistent, I ran a vulnerability scan on their server. Noting that I could get in in seconds, due to it being utterly unpatched.
Tempting, but not worth my career.

Introduction

Blog


I love to create order from chaos, so my choice of housekeeping as a profession is satisfying on many levels.  I'm a lifelong learner and love trying out new, exciting technologies.

I was a beta-tester and started English Practice Hangouts in the earliest days of G+ to help students of English find a friendly, welcoming environment to practice their speaking skills.

Google+ is a passion because it is the only social network that encourages people to connect on a global, yet personal level.

I have multiple food, drug and chemical sensitivities which make my husband and me better cooks than we would have been otherwise, and accomplished at finding cleaner, simpler solutions to many daily tasks.  I created the Try This At Home Google+ Page to share some of my favorite tips, recipes and techniques.

My husband and I have a personal website at don-guitar.com .  We write a monthly Ezine, check it out.  Here's my blog, The Don And Lisa Show and the web page of one of our bands, Play It Again.
