My Identity was stolen on a Thursday

Interestingly enough, after a false alarm identity theft on a Tuesday, I really was an actual victim of identity theft on a Thursday.  It all started in Canada....

And it ended there too, thanks to the vigilantes at the bank.  They contacted F when my credit card, (which I can testify was in my wallet throughout the whole sordid affair), was used at all sorts of establishments (places you would never let a child enter).  Fortunately, F took care of everything and now I can rest assured that, for the time being at least, I am the only me.

Additionally, I have learned how to put pics on a blog

Inspirational Moment

I will now post inspiring words that I find in strange places (some people have quotes of the day.  However, at the rate that I am finding these, I am not sure I can do more than a quote or two of the year).

Intelligence, then, means the capability to select the essential pieces out of a vast sea of information, and to reorganize them into a new meaningful statement called understanding.
As we go through our lives, we experience a huge number of events. Experiences themselves, however, do not make us wise. Only after reflecting upon the experience and deducing the essential message from these experiences, do we learn something from life."

From "Underneath the Bragg Peaks: Structural Analysis of Complex Materials" by T. Egami and S.J.L. Billinge.

To Miss M

To appease Miss M who catches my speelling erorrs.

Some people can spell, while others can only spil
Some like E, make it to state at the bee, Others, out on the word kill (khil, cil, ckyl)?

People have different talents, they know different stuf
There are so many things filling our heads up with fluf
You expect a computer generation to speel? What the hek!
I suppose the real problems arise when they don't bother with spell chek!
