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.

Use this week to work on the knowledge you have gained. Just my thoughts, Share...

42 Things I Learned at 42

On October 20, 2016, I turned 42. In my feeble years on the this dirt clod we call Earth, I have made many mistakes but also done some fun things. I have been blessed with people in my life who have pushed me to keep going and have been blessed with great critics who tried to bring me down. I have had successes and failures. I have made friends and lost friends. I have been hurt and I have hurt people. I have regretted parts of life and gloried in others. I have lived because I have been given...
