“No one understands the cloud!” Well maybe you should learn!

Everyone has internet at home, everyone has desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones!  Everyone hears this word “Cloud”, but does everyone know how to secure those devices from touching the cloud?  Do you know how your devices really work?  I don’t mean just knowing how to connect your device to the internet or being able to send a text or an email!

Do you know how the devices that your children are using work?  I know that we are all pretty bad about this and joke about “No one understanding the cloud!” but maybe it is about time we do learn about the cloud, or the devices that we use every day!  The devices that we say our entire life is on!  Our contacts, our pictures and videos our correspondence!  We should learn about stronger passwords and what our devices are actually connecting too!

Here are some starting places for you:

Guide To Keeping Your Private Photos Private

Email and Social Networking

Teach kids about using tech on the go

Stay Safe Online

You should also try to read the documentation or manuals on all the devices that you purchase to have a better understanding of their capabilities.

Three days and counting!

Three days and counting!  In three days I will start to post the photos and some of the writing from my Ride About!

So for those that do not know, on the 17th of May 2013 I took a trip, a walk about, what I ended up calling a Ride About!  It started as a trip and ended up being a journey!   I packed some saddlebags, my Camelbak and a tank bag, loaded them up on Bonnie (my motorcycle) and headed out!  No real place to go, just a direction and following the wind wherever it took me!  And took me it did to some amazing places!  A retrospective on the past twelve months!  It will be more clear to you later as you follow along!

Three days and counting!


To all that I served with We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!

What’s he that wishes so?
My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin;
If we are mark’d to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.
God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more methinks would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
We would not die in that man’s company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is call’d the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam’d,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say ‘To-morrow is Saint Crispian.’
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say ‘These wounds I had on Crispian’s day.’
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

Museum Day – September 25, 2010

Well September 25, 2010 is coming up soon and once again Smithsonian Media is hosting it’s 6th annual event, Museum Day.

Museums across the country open their doors for free to anyone presenting a Museum Day Ticket.  The Museum Day Ticket provides free admission to one person, plus a guest.  As with everything “Free” there are some catches:

  • One ticket per household
  • A ticket will gain entry in only one museum and only participating museums
  • Only an official Museum Day ticket is eligible for free entry.

So visit Smithsonian website for more details.  Even though it is only one person and guest per ticket, take the kids and pay for them, the kids tickets are always cheaper than the adult tickets! LOL.
