I hope you’ve begun a great weekend. Our friends up north are having a time of it with more snow and wind, while we “suffer” with highs in the upper 70’s and partly cloudy days. Meanwhile on the Web, things are heating up. Take a look at some of the hot items discovered this week …
Just reported yesterday, Microsoft has found a few of it’s computers have been hacked. Add their name to the growing list of major companies who have had their security breached over the past couple of weeks. Names like Facebook, Burger King and Apple lead the list, but whatever is the reason, hackers have figured out the system and are having a field day of it. http://allthingsd.com/20130222/microsoft-hacked-just-like-facebook-and-apple/

A Sunday school class was studying the Ten Commandments.
They were ready to discuss the last one.
The teacher asked if anyone could tell her what it was.
Susie raised her hand, stood tall, and quoted,
“Thou shall not take the covers off the neighbor’s wife.”
The summer after college graduation, I was living at home, fishing in the daytime, spending nights with my friends … generally just hanging out. One afternoon my grandfather, who never went to college, stopped by.
Concerned with how I was spending my time, he asked about my future plans. I told him I was in no hurry to tie myself down to a career.
“Well,” he replied, “you better start thinking about it. You’ll be thirty before you know it.”
“But I’m closer to twenty than to thirty,” I protested. “I won’t be thirty for eight more years.”
“I see,” he said, smiling. “And when will you be 20 again?”
That’s what I have for you this week … make it a good weekend friends, and until next, may God bless you and keep you safe.
