Social Engineering

So it seems that the mighty and all powerful The Googles has my two domains flagged for social engineering. I have no idea how that happens – did someone report it – or did they find suspicious code somewhere? Quite awhile back, my site’s index.html did get hacked, but that…

Unicorns and Espresso and Apps – Oh My!

On Monday, we celebrated K’s birthday. This is our first “event” during this pandemic. And I know it really bothered K that we weren’t able to do anything BIG or go anywhere. I’m not sure how I would have felt if it was my birthday. Part of me wouldn’t care…

May

It comes as a slight shock, but it’s now May, and it’s been a month since I last updated this site. Today is also Mother’s Day – and yes, I did call my mom like a good soon. May continues to hit hard here at home. Just this week, K…

The New Normal

The other day, we had to walk to Walgreens to pick up a digital picture we printed, so of course I had to wear my fancy COVID attire. The hat and sunglasses are because it’s sunny, but the mask was was for the store. I was a little afraid that…

I Love My Job

Last week, I ran into on the VPs at my credit union (she’s not my boss per se, but let’s be honest, she’s in charge) while at lunch, and she tells me “So, I heard you like soccer.” Fast forward to the next week, and she comes up to my…

It’s Been One Year . . .

After driving 1322 miles for 20 hours, I safely arrived at the hotel I would spend the next week in. And I got pretty good gas mileage considering what I was driving! Why only a week? Well, because after my first week at my new job, I would be flying…

Fitness!

Last week was our Hiking Club’s scheduled hike, but due to some issues, I wasn’t able to make it. But I was able to get a hike in this morning. With K. Recently, K has mentioned that she’d like to go hiking with me one day, so we talked about…
