Question - I may be somewhat naive but if Ted Cruz is vying for the elected role as President of the United States, why is he comparing himself as a candidate who is better than President Obama who will not be running again?  

"Ted Cruz defends presidential credentials", Ed Bradner, CNN, March 29 -

They're both Harvard Law School graduates, constitutional lawyers and senators who launched presidential campaigns during their first terms.

This is my 847th Jim's Trek post. Blogger has recorded, as of this morning, 64,961 Pageviews. Jim’s Trek needs 300 more Pageviews to supersede the total number reached a year ago. As of yesterday – 2015 = 2,700; 2014 = 2,980. Including today 4 more days to go. - http://jimstrek.com

The cybercriminals are, they do not appear to be, they are increasing in numbers and frequency …and I mean I think they have targeted my land-line. And it is always the same bloody damn shtick, “Meester Smith puleese? I am calling from Microsoft Service.” Microsoft DOES NOT initiate “cold calls”. I have even had one false representative rattle off a bogus reference case number. 

Microsoft at their Safety & Security Center state in bold

“Do not trust unsolicited calls. Do not provide any personal information.” 

I immediately threatened to call the authorities. She, yes it was a she this time, hung up. The telephone number that registered on my phone was “Unavailable 47-203-151-6369”.  

When I re-dialed the number I received a busy signal. The “47” is the Country Code for Norway. The remainder of the number does not appear to be a Norwegian configuration. The “203” is a code that covers the southwestern part of Connecticut. Of course when I tried to call-back, each of a number of possible combinations I received a busy signal. I submitted a Scam report immediately to Microsoft quoting the telephone number and time of day.

Danger, Will Robinson, Danger.

Today I ran an errand to one of the Publix grocery stores near my house. I was in the store minding my own business, picking out some bananas in the fruit aisle.

Next thing I knew was that I was being attacked be an elderly lady in a motorized grocery cart. I immediately jumped out of the way. Then crash the errant driver smashed over a free standing display of Kiwis… not the flightless bird but the fuzzy brown fruit. Kiwis flew all over the place and rolled over the floor… Oh I’m so, sorry was the apology and off she purred down the aisle. I continued my shopping but kept my eyes open for the slow-moving Cruella Deville.
