Sgrouples, The Privacy Revolution, and Me – At Last!

August 20, 2012

1 Comment

Oh, you’ve heard me say it long and loud: everything we do online is monitored, and it’s heinous. Our online information and activities is much more than a data collection for targeted advertising, it’s social engineering and a means to control us. Did you know that Facebook is going to be implementing facial recognition software?! […]

Faster Than a Speedy Bullet….

Isn’t that a funny video?! :rofl: It took FOREVER to load, though. Thank God people don’t send earthquake news via YouTube, or we’d be still waiting for the buffering…. :hmph: Twitter IS pretty speedy. Quite a number of times, I’ve gotten up-to-date news that was not available anywhere. When we had the bad flooding last […]

Twitter Asp-irations

April 1, 2011

If you’ve been following the news (of which I haven’t much), apparently a 20-inch long deadly venomous cobra escaped the Bronx Zoo last Friday, and has not been found yet. :holycow: The Bronx Zoo dudes think that the deadly venomous cobra is lurking somewhere within the zoo, but can’t be SURE. Once the snake gets […]

Give Your Region a Little Boost

I am tinkering more with Twitter these days. I recently discovered that, with Tweetdeck, I can follow people who tweet a certain word or phrase. This is totally cool! So I monitor people who tweet about my local area. It’s been quite an eye-opener- I’ve widened my Twitter friends to include a whole bunch of […]

When Ya Need Help, There’s Billy…

Comments Off on When Ya Need Help, There’s Billy…

He’s a little nerdy. He wears thick black glasses. He wears suspenders WITH a bow tie. And his pants are too short. But by golly, Billy’s a helpful lad when you need to save some money. I’m talking about Billy.com. It’s a really nice site– the owner has a touch of humor, I think. Billy […]

Beware the Twitter Phishing Scam

February 22, 2010

7 Comments

GRRRRREATTTTT. I’ve managed to keep my eyes peeled for scammers pretty well up to this point, but I was really busy and tired yesterday, and wasn’t paying much attention to what I was doing. Yesterday, I received an email from Twitter (sheesh, I get about 20 a DAY) from a follower. The message was this: […]

I Need More Twitter Followers

December 22, 2009

1 Comment

Wanna “follow” me on Twitter? I do try to make things fun there. I personally don’t see anything particularly wrong with including mentions about contests or good deals or what-have-you, but I do tire of them ALL the time. Some folks have nothing to say on Twitter except the latest paid advertisement. :ermm: I like […]

A Lovely Make-a-Wish Cause

November 16, 2009

2 Comments

I love Make-a-Wish. My little niece, suffering from leukemia, benefited from this incredibly generous foundation many years ago. I always encourage people to give to some charity at this time of the year, like the Salvation Army or Voice of the Martyrs or the Make-a-Wish Foundation. What’s really cool is that a search engine company […]
