Motivational Passwords

In the last several months there has been lots of news about passwords. Accounts hacked, entire store customer databases stolen. But recently I heard an idea that I have never heard before, and I think it’s one worth considering… having helpful passwords. So what is a motivational password? A motivational password is one that accomplishes more than one task at a time. Of course, we want our passwords to secure access to whatever account or system with which we work.

Irving Laughs by the Lake

If you are looking for something fun to do, that won’t cost you a lot of money, consider attending Irving Laughs By the Lake, an evening of comedy and music located in Las Colinas along the banks of Lake Carolyn. It all is happening this Friday night, July 18. Admission is FREE (always my favorite price), and features open lawn seating, so you will want to bring a blanket or a lawn chair. They will be selling food and drinks, and of course it is July in Texas, so hot weather is the norm, but the weather forecast currently says that we will have a high of only 82 degrees that day, and...
