I've learned a few life lessons...

...as I attempt to age with grace. 

What is spam?

My mom used to make us (me and my 3 younger, squirrelly brothers, and our Dad) fried spam (canned ham) squished up in a can, for dinner.

I don't think I've ever purchased a can of spam since I moved out of my parents' house. And I sure haven't tasted it in decades.

But I do question my son and daughter when something that doesn't seem quite right electronically, shows up in my email. I feel like an idiot doing that, but I'd feel much worse if I didn't do that. 

These days, there is no shortage of folks trying to hack into other folk's emails. 

This week, I got an email confirming that I had purchased an iphone for $600. WHAT?

And my son told me to look @ the sender's email address, which is in clear view. It turns out it wasn't from a company but from some hacker, probably located out of the country. These days, most any iPhone is much more expensive than $600.

I think that I think too much about these items, but I'm quite sure, that if I didn't, I'd regret something that I could have avoided. 

So if you care to, you can click on the spam link in the first paragraph...and see a classic Blues Brothers gig. 

Hopefully, all of this rudeness, name-calling, fights/arguments will be history sooner or later. We can't continue this way if we want to make this world a better place...and it starts with ME because I can't change how people think. 

My goal is to move on to the next stage of life, with no do-overs. And when necessary, take advantage of my daughter and son's expertise.

Back in the day...we'd say we lead by example, not by words. 

Live richly, marilyn
