Are they taking away Internet altogether?? Because I can understand the distraction some people might have with Facebook or games or the like, but just listening to music, lots of people do that at work.

Talk about Internet tracking.... I recently searched for car rentals for an upcoming trip. There is now an ad from that site, WITH my dates and location, on almost every page I visit that has ads!! That's creepy...


Happy Saturday y'all! Have a good one and enjoy the weekend!

....at school, 1st period is my Prep period, so I usually work on my lesson plans [or read them] and get all the stuff that I need for the day (like any dittos that I've saved) and print them out - you know, stuff like that. I also check my school mail for any memos [meetings, changes in the monthly itinerary, etc.] because, once 2nd period begins, I rarely have a chance for access to a computer, well, with the exception of my lunch period. So, while I'm doing my prep work, I like to listen to one of the Disney stations on live365.com, to put me in a happy mood.....and now that's GONE.

Oddly, he doesn't find it as funny was we do. The story is we were discussing with his mom what we were going to do with our office after cleaning it out. DH wanted to turn it into a game room and get an air hockey table or something for the room. I said I thought we should turn it into an exercise room and put our stationary bike in there and maybe get a treadmill. DH said we'd have to get one used because we can't afford one but it'd be good to have so he could run even when it got too hot outside. We get home from lunch and get a text from his mom that she bought us a treadmill and it will be delivered on Friday. DH talked to her and she said she didn't want him out running on the streets because someone could come and take him. Not that she was worried about heatstroke in the Florida sun, getting hit by a car on a busy road, or any other slightly more reasonable neurosis. She was afraid he'd be taken.

Since I work for the government, we can't do anything on our computers without it being considered public record. That's why I'm happy to have my iPhone so I can listen to what I want, check FB, and other stuff without it being subject to a public records request.

....well, I got a Nook for Christmas, but I can't seem to get that station on it - I tried several times to get the free app, but I can't seem to download it correctly... otherwise, I'd bring my Nook to school and use that to listen to live365.com.....

She's just a total neurotic. Though many times it works in our favor... like the new treadmill. Other times, it just requires us to not say anything. DH is the baby of the family and his older brother killed himself a few years ago, so I guess it makes her a bit overprotective. My step FIL is the same. They bought us a new fridge a few years ago for Christmas, it didn't fit under the cabinets. So he cut my cabinet in half to make it fit. His mom felt so bad she decided we had to have the whole kitchen redone. They are very generous and mean well, so we just deal with the neurosis.
