Check Out Suspicious Computer Links with VirusTotal September 2, 2016

I had a bizarre comment on my latest post.  It was a url.  It was enough to get me to call my email provider and ask some questions that got me to the security folks.  We think it was harmless, but I changed passwords.  But it did lead to him pointing out a website that checks suspicious url’s for malware, viruses, etc.

I thought that was a cool thing to know, so here it is:

Check That Suspicious Link

If you can’t handle me at my worst then you probably can’t handle me at my best either. My best is just me at my worst with lipstick and brushed hair.

A police recruit was asked during the exam,
“What would you do if you had to arrest your
own mother?”
Then He answered, “Call for backup.”


I have so many problems that if a new one comes along today,it will be at least two weeks before I can worry about it.


















Cannabis illegal, Alcohol legal September 1, 2016

Is there more money in Alcohol than Cannabis? (Sarcasm)

Cannabis Social Clubs became popular in the United States during prohibition. Cannabis was often used as a legal intoxicant since alcohol was illegal.

Teapads were developed as clubs in urban areas where jazz music was performed and cannabis was consumed. Teapads usually catered to those in the jazz scene and were usually furnished comfortably, often playing jazz music. Music in homage from these clubs arose; Gene Krupa even composed an entire album named “Teapad Songs Volume 1”. These clubs disappeared after cannabis became illegal.

Personal Responsibility where you choose to live September 1, 2016

The following rant, loud writing, is for single and small groups of people. Natural disasters, happenings beyond control (broken natural gas lines, water mains, etc.) are not a consideration.

When one chooses to build on rock (no water) difficulty in reaching or outside fire service areas, unstable soil and not get insurance, should everyone else be financially responsible?


Build on rock, then complain there is no water and ask city to provide water.  The homeowners along the proposed route will be asked to help defray the costs~


Recently a fire was started at McHugh Creek in the Anchorage area.  Remember, fires are prohibited in the park.  Fortunately no lives were lost.  Folks built nearby, knowing their escape routes were limited to one road. These are expensive homes, $500,000 being entry-level.

There are means to protect against a majority of fires. Build with non-flammable material, external & internal fire suppression systems, clear all flammable materials away from dwelling and on and on.


The Matanuska River has changed course and flooded throughout the years. People choose to live on and near it. Then they expect or demand everyone else bail (no pun intended) them out.

Badass! August 31, 2016


Every wrench sitting in a toolbox wants to grow up to become a tomahawk. That’s because the locked jaw of a wrench actually makes for a pretty perfect axehead after it gets heated and treated and, well, hammered into shape.

Cathy Muñoz’s Compassion for Child Abusers August 31, 2016

Child abuse or child maltreatment is physical, sexual, or psychological mistreatment or neglect of a child or children, especially by a parent or other caregiver. It may include any act or failure to act by a parent or other caregiver that results in actual or potential harm to a child, and can occur in a child’s home, or in the organizations, schools or communities the child interacts with.

The terms child abuse and child maltreatment are often used interchangeably, but some researchers make a distinction between them, treating child maltreatment as an umbrella term to cover neglect, exploitation, and trafficking.

Different jurisdictions have developed their own definitions of what constitutes child abuse for the purposes of removing a child from his/her family and/or prosecuting a criminal charge.


Alaska has one of the highest rates of child abuse. Children can not vote, therefore they have no value for Cathy Alaska has one of the highest rates of child abuse. Children can not vote, therefore they have no value for Cathy Muñoz.

I believe Muñoz  “learning experience” is not to get caught doing anything to lose votes, which is one of top rules for politicians.


In her statement, Muñoz said she unintentionally caused pain to victims of sexual abuse, and said she’s been accused at times of being “too compassionate.”

“My mistake was not being more sensitive to the victims in these particular cases,” she said in a phone interview Tuesday. “This has created a learning experience that’s going to change my life around these issues.”
