Happy 47th Birthday to me :)

My Mom, My Great Grandma, My Grandma(Nana) & of course me.

So today was my 47th birthday. Seems like only last week it was my 40th birthday, I guess as you get older time passes by much more quickly? Oh how I yearn for those lazy long days of summer from my youth. Instead of celebrating my birthday here today, I would like to celebrate the three inspirational women who have had a major effect on my life. My Mom is and always will be #1!

Since yesterday I have seen this hoax once again being passed around Facebook. The gist is this: If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM, you can notify the police by entering your PIN in reverse. For example if your PIN is 1234 then you would put in 4321. The ATM recognizes that your PIN is backwards from the ATM card you placed in the machine. The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to the robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to help you. This information was […] Read more »

If you have been on Facebook for any length of time I am sure you have seen these little icons depicting smiles, hearts, etc. Some people love them others not so much. Well love them or hate them back in October 2012 Facebook has added them to comments and replies. They used to only be in the chat window but now you can add them right to your comments. You still cannot use them in a status update yet. Here is a list of emoticons I have compiled that you can use on Facebook. Some of the emoticons have more […] Read more »
