My grandson's daughter is only 11 y.o. so her parents keep a close eye on her. She has long natural blonde hair and huge blue eyes. An absolute stunner. Scary! And she is just discovering boys. Oh dear. Her father is having a quiet mental fit!

Carol, I didn't think YOU would do any of those things. But the ability to do those things is why it requires trust to give someone a password to FB.

I got tired of having so many passwords for all the sites I go to. So now (even against the advice of all the experts) I have just one password for everywhere I go. The only difference is I sometimes will capitalize it. So if I put it in wrong, I know that I have to use a capital at the beginning. My son Spike knows what it is. He needs to know so he can notify people in the event of my demise. And for the financial sites such as PayPal.

Spike also needs to know my computer password because I can screw up this computer really bad. He is the one I run to for HELP! I don't know what I would do without him. When he is finished fixing it, he walks around shaking his head. Every so often he will give me a look. Like as if he is saying, "I don't believe you did that."

I have done some things to protect my computer against a possible hacker. Such as having the first name in my list of phone numbers as a7Aa1aBa for the name and then an overseas type phone number. When a hacker is trying to get in, they often go for the address book. And they start with the letter. This was on the advice of a friend that helped install and now works on their system for 911 for the county where she lives. She has a Doctorate in Computer Sciences. So I do trust her when she says something about computers.

I'm really upset right now. I've been feeling really crummy all day - weak, jittery and my feet hurt more than usual. So I can't attend the memorial service for my neighbor who passed away last week. DH is going, but I'm really unhappy that I can't go. At least I took the family some food yesterday and DH will let his wife know why I'm not there. But it sucks.

Yikes, GG, I hope there isn't anything seriously wrong! Like Dawg said, I'm sure the neighbor will understand your absence. Hope you feel better soon.

Thank you. I'm starting to feel better. I have a lot of complicated stuff going on and some days I run out of spoons early.

(((Hugs))) I'm glad you are starting to feel better. I understand about running out of spoons. Some days are just like that.

I am so annoyed that more and more threads are becoming shouting matches or venting forums. If you have small thing to crab about, put it into the Petty Vents thread. If you are crabbing about something major, put it in this-here Venting thread.

I miss the nice, friendly DC that used to discuss the topic in the thread. Even Rodney King wised up and said "Can we all get along?" So, can we???

This message was brought to you by NOT The Management, just one crabby, old broad. Thank you.
