Using only one word, how does grocery shopping make you feel?
What is your favorite part about the season of Autumn?
Have you ever had any bad experiences online?
Yes. Many years ago, we picked up a trojan that allowed remote access to the computer or at least the appearance of remote access.
One Saturday night, I was instant messaging with my friend in Oregon when words began showing up in the dialogue box. Filthy words. And whomever was typing them was instant messaging everyone on my Buddy List. So my friends were all answering in shock and anger! I was trying to type, “I’m not doing that” and the person or program was blocking me from doing so.
Then a dialogue box popped up that said “Delete C:?” I freaked out and called America OnLine. They told me there was nothing we could do except shut down the computer and reformat which was extremely frustrating.
Because I had recently begun banking on-line, ans was also using Quicken, I had to close all of my bank accounts because there was no way to ascertain precisely how much information the person who hacked into my system acquired.
Shortly after that, I got a cable modem, several firewalls and as much spam, pop-up and virus blocking protection as I could muster. I keep it all up-to-date at all times!
Name three things that make you happy daily.
1. Opening my eyes in the morning and realizing that I am still able to see.
2. Hearing one or both of my kids yell, “Hey, Mooooooooooooooom!” from down the hallway as they run toward and tackle me with bearhugs and kisses. This usually takes place at about 10:59 p.m. as Letterman is about to begin the monologue. They bring both dogs with them and all pile into my bed while BigBob complains — “I’m trying to get some sleep over here!”
3. Walking here or there and realizing that because I have lost so much weight and my asthma is under control, I have arrived at my destination without getting out of breath and my thighs no longer rub together. (Was that T.M.I.? Sorry if it was.)
What one household cleansing or organizing item would you not want to be without?
My cleaning lady. Her name is Pam and she has worked for me for about 15 years.
