Let’s see the NSA listen in through that!
So I started this issue last Wednesday knowing I have 2 issues to do back to back (Wednesday & Saturday for Independence Day). Knocked out about a third of it too.
Came in Thursday and knocked out nearly the other two thirds before other matters demanded I stop working on the issue and again due to our on going problems with posting and WordPress I both saved it to my computer and posted to the blog as a draft. When I post to the blog, even as a draft I have it set to take me to the blog page once it’s done uploading so I can confirm it uploaded which it did.
Friday I came in with the intention of knocking out the last few things, polishing and writing this opening then uploading as a queued time delayed post. I opened the copy on my personal lap top and started scrolling only to spot multiple place holders (those framed tiny black boxes with the white X that shows you there was a graphic there but you aren’t going to ever see it) ALL OVER the issue! EVERYTHING I had done on Thursday was missing! To make matters worse I had the previous night purged my email, tablet and phone as well as BOTH cloud sites I use of all the graphics jokes and other things that were missing in one of my regular electronic housekeeping sessions!
Seems like the NSA might not have thought my comment was any too funny so Big Brother reached out and showed me so!
So if the issue seems a little light that and the fact I was reworking this issue while working the the Special Issue for the weekend is the reason why.
My advice? Think all the crap you want about our Government, but if you put it in text or photos be prepared to lose stuff because they ARE listening to us and apparently have absolutely NO sense of humor.
Thank God they can’t electronically mess with my coffee!
What does it say about our society that someone even has to come up with this sign let alone display it?
If your phone rings then stops, don’t call back – It’s a scam
I’m sure at some point you have received an annoying, unsolicited phone call from someone you don’t know. They seem to come at the worst possible moments too, like when we’re about to sit down for dinner.
Some of these unsolicited phone calls are going from annoying to malicious. You need to know about the latest phone scam making the rounds so you don’t make this simple mistake.
How scammers are sticking victims with fraudulent charges
What’s happening is, scammers are auto-dialing potential victims all across the U.S. Instead of waiting for the victim to answer, the scammer lets the phone ring just once and then hangs up. By doing this, a missed call message shows up on the victim’s cellphone.
What the fraudsters are hoping for is that the victim dials the number of the missed call. If you call the number, a pre-recorded message will play. It will say something like, “Hello. You’ve reached the operator, please hold.”
Not only will you be hit with an international rate fee, but you’ll also be charged a per-minute fee for the entire time you’re on the line. How this works is, the incoming number looks like it’s a typical U.S. phone number with a three-digit area code. However, the number is spoofed and is actually going to international numbers that are set up to charge anyone who calls them.
And I though we were bad in Texas! Oh well, at least it a dry heat (Yeah right! Hot is hot)
You’ve heard mention many times of Impish’s reclining/resting area in his office. Usually I refer to it as his dais. Well he recently had it redone when his virgins trashed his office looking for Valentine’s Day presents. Here it is as it appears now, less of course the reclining blue dragon atop it.
I DARE her to say “My eyes are up here!” now!
Politicians could do well to keep this in the forefront of their minds at all times.
Sir Patrick Stewart’s hilarious cowboy classics
You might know him as Captain Picard from “Star Trek: The Next Generation” or Professor X from the “X-Men” series. But did you know that Sir Patrick Stewart has a pretty good singing voice? He filmed this parody to raise money for charity.
Poor Frogger! They lied to him, he wasn’t even safe on the sidewalk!
Or in my case the Independence Day Issue
