Facebook Privacy Settings Take Another Step Toward Super Scary I awoke this morning and fired up the Mac to see what was new in the world. That of course led me to Facebook to see who had commented on anything I’ve posted in the past day or so and I couldn’t help but notice a […]

Veterans Day 2013: Thanks Dad, Mom and Families USAA, the military insurance company, has sort of backed into the theme of this post, almost by accident it seems, but in part because what they’re saying is true.

Some people already have Christmas trees up?! Yes, Virginia and everyone else, I already have put up a Christmas tree in my house.
