Great way to start the weekend

I have been getting emails from a bank where I don’t have an account. Low balance alerts, overdraft alerts, wrong security answer, etc, etc. The emails were filling my email box daily.

I called without giving my information to see if they could flag the account to change the email address. No. Close your email account and get a new one. No. Not happening. Go into a local branch and they can help you, but, sorry, we have no branches in your state. Yes, so helpful.

I started marking the emails as spam. They sent me the account owner’s name and last 4 digits of the owner’s social security number. Oh, that’s secure. Plus, the name is nothing like mine, so why choose my name as your email address???

I got notification that I should have received my ATM card by now, and to reply to the email if I didn’t. So, I replied. Apparently, that seemed to have some effect. I got an email first thing this morning that I had changed the email address in the account!

What a great way to start the day! I hope they stop emailing now.

George, by Alex Gino

LGBTQ list for kids – Pride month

I picked this one up from the library


George by Alex Gino
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a very well written story about George trying to tell people that she’s a girl. George is surprised by who supports her and who needs a little more time to understand.

The book showed up on the LGBT books for kids list, but it’s more of a YA book. It was enjoyable either way.

Growing Horns

growing horns

The above linked article talks about the hazards of screen time.  Specifically handheld devices, such as cell phones.

Similar to a heel spur, the ligaments in the neck are pulling on the bone in the skull, so that a similar “horn” is growing at the base of the skull.  Supposedly, those who get the bone growth can probably feel it if they touch the base of their skulls.

It surprises me that reading isn’t a culprit.  I guess that people read in more varied positions than cellphone users.  Or, maybe there aren’t as many avid readers to test?

10 Tips to Reading More Books — Read ’em and Weep

I loved this article!  I get asked all the time about how I find time to read.  I see that another blogger uses a lot of the same techniques that I do.  I have followed this blogger to keep hearing other tips and tricks.


Happy Saturday, everyone! Boy, am I glad it’s the weekend… I love my job, but I’ve been absolutely swamped and extremely stressed out. I’m going to enjoy this weekend and miss it when it’s gone. Also, I’m a day late, but happy March! It’s hard to believe we’re already on the third month of 2019. […]

Changing Sheets with Feline Help

I stripped the bed. Inky took over before I got the sheets on. I had to move her to get the fitted sheet on. Then she climbed back up, so she’s currently made into the bed.  She doesn’t seem to mind.  She’s inside warm sheets, napping.  It sounds like a good idea on most days.  Too bad Inky can’t read.  We could completely be buddies.  I just have to teach her how to change the sheets, so it’s not only me doing it.
