Is your skull full of mush?  Reading a book might help take care of that.

Let's talk Heartbleed! OK, the security flaw is real and serious. But let's take this step by step.

First - this flaw is the sign of potential for there to be breaches, no actual known instances of a breaches is known. Yet. So... DO. NOT. PANIC!

Second- until the affected sites upgrade their software then changing your password will do no good. The flaw is still there, your info is still vulnerable.

Third - a lot of your normal big boys are safe, such as Google, Amazon, FaceBook. They either don't use the software that has the flaw, or they patched it earlier. The ones to really watch are Yahoo (like Yahoo Mail) and a bunch of others. Which others? Check this list http://goo.gl/jKAq4q or put the site you are worried about into this checker - http://goo.gl/NZoTE7. You can find out without putting in any user info at all. Never even put a username into one of these test sites.

Fourth - So, what to do? While it is always a good idea to change passwords regularly, I wouldn't panic and do so right now. Unless you just want to.  I would wait until Yahoo patches their servers and then do it. The exception would be is if a particular service sends you a notice that they would like you to change your password. Then do it - and this is IMPORTANT -  but, don't go through the link in the email which could be a phishing scam. Go to that service via the same link you always do, sign in, and the do the change from there. Never click on links in email about changing passwords.

Hope that all makes sense!

This is what happens when you earphones go into the dryer for a while. Twisted together and nicely melted in spots. Duh!

I really need to try to get up to Highlands. Not only do I want to go to this car show, but I miss the mountains.

Yup, we were supposed to go to Edisto, but called that off for the same reason. Love Asheville and that entire area.

Too cool.
 
The MG Dynamo, a new and all-electric city car concept, was unveiled today. The MG Dynamo is based on parent company SAIC’s Roewe E50 city car sold in China. The car was on display at an exhibit of current and future tech at the Society of Motor…

"You might have laughed if I told you.
You might have hidden a frown.
You might have succeeded in changing me.
I might have been turned around.

It's easier to leave than to be left behind
Leaving was never my proud
Leaving New York, never easy
I saw the light fading out
You find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart
You find it in your heart, change..."

This is beautiful. Yes, it even moved me of the hard heart. Watch it and see if it doesn't move you to want to make a difference. Now, would someone quit with cutting the onions?! It is making my eyes tear up.

Some of the absolute best BBQ. Period. I have eaten BBQ all over the south, and this is some of the best. As with any good BBQ joint, you are not going there for the fine decor. You are going for good food in a friendly atmosphere.
