This is a shameless plug. For a few weeks now I have been posting links from this site. The site is mostly for basketball fantatics, and I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to write articles like the one I wrote this week. But there are numerous talented writers on this site, and I think it would behoove you to take a look at it at least once a day. Even if you aren't a huge fan of basketball, you still have two options. You can 1)read the site anyway because I asked you to. or 2)pass the site along to someone you know, and have them read it. I am not saying you have to love it, because you may very well have some pointed criticism, and if you do, bring it on, I'm sure that good folks over there can take intelligent, constructive criticism. But if you like something or more specifically, if you fancy some one's writing, leave a positive comment. Spread some sunshine on someone and make them happy, because at the end of the day(or the beginning..or the middle), everyone wants to know that someone out there appreciates their work, whether it be art, religion, sports, music or sex. I know I do.

I wish I could pick one password for every aspect of my life. I have so many passwords for different things like the phone, my work computer, my laptop, my email, my bank account, and half the time I can't remember what the hell I picked. Ideally I would pick one word or phrase, and let that be it, but I've heard many smart people tell me how dumb that is. And then, let's say I forget my bank password, and they send a new one to my email address..I still have to remember my email password just to look at my damn money. So what's my solution? I am going to devise a password spreadsheet, and send it to my dad and my brother, but not retain a copy. That way, all I have to do is pick up the damn phone(no password is needed for that) get an answer, and hope to God that they answer the phone, as opposed to calling me back later and leaving a message where a password is required.

I know no one cares about this, but I had a fast run this morning. I felt quick, graceful and strong, just like my main man Edwin Moses. Too bad it was 5am, and no one was around.

As a fellow writer on HA, I completely agree with Rashad.

As to the password point, I get stuck in the same situations, argh. But, I've just come to deal with it. lol.

Hehehe on the passwords. I really need to change a couple of mine. Identity theft is a real biatch.

That's why they call it a password, because no ONE is supposed to know it but YOU . . .not your brother or your dad???!!!! Puhleeze! You are too much! LOL!

Most of these sites have "security questions" for when you can't remember your password. I rely heavily on those. I hate the passwords when they make you have numbers and letters and then the site tells you that your password is unacceptable. Damn it, it's MYYYYY password. It's acceptable for me!!! ahahahaha
