"Lady, you better be separating the laundry. I'm not laying on any pink towels because you're an idiot." Grumble, grumble, grumble... "Nobody ever listens to me." "HEY! HEY! DID YOU HEAR ME?!? Don't make me have to do this myself!" "Hmph. That's better. Just don't add any of that smelly stuff to my cat bed."
A lot of you are probably thinking, for a site called When Cats Attack, there is a distinct lack of cats around here, neither of the attack variety or otherwise. And you are correct. Time has gotten away from me and I have not given their introduction the attention it deserves. I had hoped to... Continue Reading →
I hate politics. Which is funny because I'm a politician (city alderwoman). And the reasons why could and probably will be a post all on it's own. State and federal government though...entirely different subjects. I am reluctant to talk about them because I know I disagree with the majority in my community on a number... Continue Reading →
I remember growing up and watching college basketball and NFL games with my parents. During those times, I always hoped to see female reporters or female coaches on TV during Monday Night Football or an NCAA tournament game. I wanted to see a woman holding her own at the tables of talking heads. Hell, I... Continue Reading →
Unbelievable. First Equifax, a company to help protect your credit through monitoring, is hacked and has opened a Pandora's Box of unsecured data practices throughout their company. Now Avast, who owns Piriform, finds that malware was added to the August updated release of CCleaner. CCleaner is a VERY popular computer junk file removal tool. Like, billions... Continue Reading →
Now Gabapentin is being used as a scary word in the ongoing battle of prescription drug abuse. I cannot for the life of me understand how these people are getting high off of Gabapentin. If you are going to label a medication as addictive due to sedation effects, then even Benadryl isn't safe. Regardless, tightening the noose on prescription medication is not going to solve drug addiction. You have to figure out why someone is using them and tackle that; otherwise they'll just find something else.
Equifax is the poster child this week for bad data security decisions. I know this may not seem interesting or is something to worry about, but you absolutely should be worried. Experts and others are recommending that anyone with a credit history assume they were affected by the hack. Here's what can happen to your personal information on websites and what to do if your data is compromised.
This was me yesterday when B was trying to explain weighing different kinds of averages. Really, this is me when he tries to explain ANY mathematical or statistical concept. But when I'm not sleeping well and am stressed out (which is the norm lately), it's a million times worse.
Kind of disappeared for a few days. Struggled quite a bit last week with some medicine changes. I've been up since 8am Monday and my nerves are razor thin at this point. It's time to wrap this origin story up. Can't have the FADI Queen forever trapped in her darkest days, can we?
I would like to post my notes from last night's work study. The work studies are more often than not 4 hour long meetings every first Thursday of the month, and this one was certainly no exception. The video from the meeting is posted for all to view. This is a long post as I tried to include as much information as possible. All of this is public information from a public meeting that can be requested at City Hall. No personal opinions regarding city business items are included per the Tennessee Open Meetings Law. I cannot comment about my personal views on any particular item in social media; I can only provide what was reported on and discussed, and I can provide additional resources or follow-up information as needed.
