Privacy vs Secrecy

Privacy vs Secrecy

I am a great proponent of our individual rights of privacy. Everyone needs a certain level of privacy. Occasionally, I really like to have some time to myself, just to clear my head and remember what I want to accomplish before my time on earth is done. That being said, I also recognize there are subtle, yet significant, differences between the desire for privacy and secretive behavior. So how do we draw the line between privacy vs secrecy? If I want an hour alone in the bathtub, just me, my book and scented bubble bath, that is a typical...

Facebook Sued Over Privacy

Facebook Sued Over Privacy

Facebook and privacy. I have written about it before. Facebook changes its privacy policy or its settings, and now something you thought was private is now visible to the world. Now we get to add another chapter to the story. The headline says it all: “Facebook Sued Over Privacy.” This time, however, it is not about Facebook taking your private pictures and sharing them with the world. It’s not about them changing your status updates from being visible to your friends to visible to all. This one is about those private...

12 Days of Christmas Tips – Day 12: Holiday Tipping

12 Days of Christmas Tips – Day 12: Holiday Tipping

People’s approach to holiday tipping seems to vary in different regions of the United States and around the world. For those of us the in Dallas – Ft. Worth metroplex, figuring out who we should tip at the holidays, and how much we should tip, does not necessarily come naturally to us. I checked with the Emily Post Institute, and even the vaunted oracle of all things civilized and appropriate says, “It depends.” My opinion is that there is no one right or wrong answer. Ultimately, you should let your instincts be your...

12 Days of Christmas Tips – Day 11: Christmas Photo Tips

Taking photos at Christmas time is an age-old tradition. For many people, its hard to get photos that capture the moments. You look at your pictures and they don’t look the way you remember the scene. Let me suggest a couple of Christmas photo tips. Do you take pictures when people are opening their presents? Do you remember happy children and smiling spouses, but your photos show odd expressions, the side of someone’s face, or blurry hands? Try this instead. During the opening of the gifts, don’t take any pictures at all....

12 Days of Christmas Tips – Day 10: Don’t Drink and Drive… and Do Not Talk to the Police!

I know… you have heard it so many times before. Don’t drink and drive. It doesn’t seem like realistic advice to some; you may have heard the old joke, “Well then how am I  going to get home from the bar?” Even people who don’t typically drink or don’t drink very much will enjoy a drink during a Christmas party that they might not otherwise have. But speaking as someone who lost a family member due to alcohol and cars, I can tell you they don’t mix well. If you are involved in an accident where...

12 Days of Christmas Tips – Day 8: Have a Safe Christmas Party

If you are hosting a Christmas Party this year, then you obviously want everything to go well. While party planning is not my forte, I have a handful of suggestions to make sure you have a safe Christmas party. Know your guest list. Make sure you know who is coming into your home. Whenever possible, ask people with a +1 to reply with that individual’s name. At least do a quick Google search on anyone whom you do not know. If you are more security conscious, you can always call your local PI to do a more thorough background check. 😉 If...
