What a week. It started with a fire and a flood. Fortunately there were no locust or frogs, so I'm feeling safe that it was not divine intervention in my life. Before Friday hit we had another flood in a client's office space. Our company is only restoring their facility for them. Thankfully, it ...

New scams are always on the horizon. The latest one to come across my computer looks like a real possibility of a purchase I could have made, but it had a few things missing.
