I routinely use a virtual disk and use an alternative eMail address when I peruse the web. I don’t want anyone to be able to insert a bot or a virus on my computer that will leave me unable to peruse my data- more importantly, I don’t want anyone else to examine the contents of my computer.
I recently “met” this interesting fellow, just entering what used to be called middle age. He writes about some interesting stuff. Last week (as of this writing; so by the time this is published, it’s probably last month), he wrote about turning his fiscal life around.
I’ve written about my next mentor often. (Here’s but one example– with another great story about Cary.) He was but one half of the management team that took a chance to hire me. A soon-to-be 14 y old kid. And, let me basically take over their baby. (As you can see, Cary became a mentor about the time I was losing touch with Ms. Katzman. I’d been really lucky to have a continuous mentor relationship for nigh 16 years, by the time this one ends.)
I don’t generally celebrate (American) Thanksgiving. My Thanksgiving is more in line of how and when the Pilgrims created the holiday. That was a version of Sukot, the harvest festival. More akin to Canadian Thanksgiving, which coincides with my holiday. (Think about it. What harvest would you reap in late November?)
I’m sure you’ve heard that the Senate version of the (creatively named) Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is now going to attack PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), affectionately (sic) known as Obamacare. But, if you don’t truly understand the intracacies of the bill, it will be difficult to discern how NOT collecting the tax penalty on those who don’t enroll in a health care plan can be used to reduce the deficit incurred by the behemoth of a bill. (Sorry for all those negatives- but that’s the true concept.)
