“Before You Change the World…”

“Before you can change the world, you must change yourself.” I have heard the above quote many times, but have no idea who said it first. The quote is absolutely true, we must begin to change ourselves before we change the world. When we change, the world sees a change in us and they want to make the positive change too. Here are some words found in the back of No More Mondays by Dan Miller (page 241) attributed as found on a tomb dated A.D. 1100 of an Anglican Bishop at Westminster Abbey: When I was young and...

Coffee has mystical powers! I am not sure where the powers behind this dark drink originate, but I know coffee has the tremendous power to kick start the human mind each morning and prepare them for the hectic day ahead.

A Facebook Favor

Another day, another stolen Facebook identity. Friends, lock down your Facebook. The world of identity theft is growing rapidly, because people are trying to find easier and more efficient ways to become a criminal. There are those who sit at home and do nothing more than find ways to hack someone’s account. (I say bring back tar and feathering for these people, but that is another topic). Recently, after a large number of people having their Facebook accounts hacked, I decided to lock down my Facebook account as much as possible to prevent craziness from effecting my friends. Doing caused a brief moment of frustration because sharing my posts became a problem because they were “private.” While this caused some delay, it brought a greater sense of security. Then it happened…another friend request from an already friended friend. Friends, I encourage you to lock down your Facebook. Spend time looking at your security settings so you are not allowing or even opening the door to have your account hacked. Use common sense when adding people to your friends list. A rule I use is to not add friends for a week once I have received the request. This gives me time to think about whether or not they are a friend or a number on a list. Regarding Facebook Messenger, some messages of people you are not friends with...
