Things & Stuff
2008-03-26 - 11:52 a.m.
Yesterday I couldn't find anything really worth writing about. I just couldn't focus and, unlike Brin, I'm not a big fan of Friday Five and other memes.
So sometimes I just take a day off. All is well - my health is fine, Solange is good, finances are good.
Matter of fact, I may do some retail therapy soon. There are some things at Fry's I plan to get.
Well, there's one group of folks who are excited about the high cost of gasoline - California lawmakers. They'll be getting about $3.8 billion dollars in revenue from the sales tax.
Here in California we're expecting $4/gallon for gas to become the norm this summer. There are laws in place that require a "summer blend" to lower emissions, so the refineries are re-tooling to start making it. And that, of course, costs. So the amount previously mentioned here will most likely go up.
And of course the price of crude oil keeps going up. OPEC continues to NOT increase production. And why should they? They're making a mint with prices as high as they are.
But that has nothing to do with anything. Remember - it's all Bush's fault.
(Actually, now that the Democrats control the House and Senate, I'm not hearing that mantra very much anymore. Wonder why not.)
I like to think of myself as being computer savvy. I try to pay attention to my e-mails, deleting spam as I go and avoiding phishing scams. I get quite a few, usually depending on what I do online (when I do a lot of eBay, I tend to get a proportionate amount of eBay and PayPal scam attempts).
My main account is on Adelphia and I get occasional phish attempts there, since it's been bought out by Time-Warner. This one arrived yesterday, and it just too dumb not to share (including spelling errors and typos):
The "from" address, by the way, was from someone at "bellsouth.ca" - as in, Canada.
I was tempted to reply to it with my password as FUCKOFF, but why feed the trolls?
What's scary is, some folks will actually fall for this
Today's title really exists. Let's go to the video!
Okay, moving on now.
Tomorrow I have much to do before the Angels play the Dodgers.
Be seeing you.
