But I also keep coming back to this quote, because we keep forgetting. I’m compelled to write today to implore us to remember....more

There is a new social media storm ravaging my Twitter and Facebook feeds called #stopdropselfie where I am forced to see pictures of everyone I know or vaguely know on the internet acting natural in front of a mirror or while reading a book.

Tis the Season to Be... Scammed?

I'm not sure what it is about this holiday season, but I am getting scammed like I've never been scammed before.I've had the occasional security breaches at my credit card companies like everyone else, where they send you a letter and a new card due to 'security reason' (ie someone hacked their system or they think they did) and they didn't really bother me that much. But, after getting sent a few new credit cards from one of my credit card companies within just a 6 month period, I started getting annoyed. And so it began....more
