HAVE YOU BEEN HACKED YET???

We got the official word on Monday from our IT guy that we should probably change all of our passwords on our bank accounts, Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, etc, because of this stupid Heartbleed thing.

How Did The ACM Hosts Do?

How Did The ACM Hosts Do?

Chase and I were talking about the hosting job from last Sunday’s ACM awards show. While it’s kinda cool to have actual country music stars host, we were debating whether it loses the professionalism such a show demands. Or does the public determine that choice? I think they did an OK job, but was it…

Scientists Say…Researchers Have Discovered…

Scientists Say...Researchers Have Discovered...

I am so confused. It seems like almost every day we hear about new findings from scientists and researchers that totally DEBUNK theories that we’ve lived with for years! Like the recent one about butter. You know, the one that came out a few days ago. The myth that butter is bad has been circulating for…

Are You Guilty of Rude Behavior!

Are You Guilty of Rude Behavior!

Using cell phones or text messaging in mid-conversation or during an appointment or meeting is one of the Terrible 10 Rude Behaviors issued by Johns Hopkins University. What about if you just glance at the text to see who it’s from? My wife says I do that all the time and that it’s extremely rude….

What? Cut Back Our Army? What Are They Thinking?!!

What? Cut Back Our Army? What Are They Thinking?!!

Last Monday Sec. Of Defense Chuck Hagel previewed the upcoming Department of Defense budget. His proposal? Reduce the size of the U.S. Army to between 440,000 and 450,000. This would make it make it the smallest Army size since before World War II. I think it’s a big mistake. I understand that our war technology…

Some women have told me (on our Facebook page) that it’s a useless celebration, while others love the idea of receiving some extra attention on…
