They’re Symbiotes . . .

Jan and I once again sat outside and had our coffee and toast this morning while we can. It’s supposed to rain tomorrow and be back down into the mid-60’s by Wednesday. Nick came over for a while so Mister could get his ‘Little Buddy’ fix and Nick could get his Mister fix. It’s a symbiotic relationship, and that’s all I’m going to say.

Normally we would have walked this morning, but although my knee is almost back to normal, I don’t want to push it. Maybe tomorrow or Tuesday.

On the phone front, my Samsung Droid Charge apparently had a mild stroke sometime yesterday, when it lost all my contacts. My Call Log and everything else seems to be fine, just my contacts are gone.

I went online to the Backup Assistant and they’re all there, but so far I haven’t been able to restore them back to my phone. All the instructions seem to be for restoring to a new phone, not your old one. Plus the app on the phone only allows for backing up, not restoring. So I’ll probably just go by the Verizon store here in Elkhart tomorrow to figure it out.

Then again, maybe this is just God’s way of telling me I need that new Samsung Galaxy S5.

Just a warning . . .

I’ve been getting a lot of dangerous emails and I wanted to be sure that everyone was on the lookout for them.

They masquerade as Wal-Mart Gift Cards, Chili’s Coupons, or Red Lobster, etc. or even Free iPhones,

Because the fact that there’s usually something funny about the wording or phrasing of the message, the biggest giveaway is the email address shown at the upper left.

In this case, it’s ‘’.

Do you really think that Wal-Mart is going to have an email address with ‘pigduke’ in it?

Walmart Trojan


Here’s the exact same email, but from ‘’.

And here’s what looks like a Delivery Notice from the US Post Office. Do you really thing the US Postal Service would be using a United Kingdom email address?

What do you think is going to happen if you try to print that shipping label? And why would you need to print a shipping label to PICK UP a package, anyway?

And note that apparently you can go to ANY Post Office to pick up your package.

So check those email addresses, and Let’s Be Careful Out There.


Thought for the Day:

I tend to be a Samson-in-the-temple kind of guy.
