Someone created an account using my gmail account on a service that I don't use. In an effort to get that account deleted, the online service went completely clownshoes and disclosed someone ELSE's personal details to me.

One of the perks of working for Amazon, I guess. They had a vaccine event at a nearby fulfilment centre and I could get my son vaccinated there. Super easy and had appointments 7 days a week with pre-booked 2nd dose.

I help run an online community for people with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and other mobility issues. It’s a super old community (since 2001), ad-free and non-commercial. Full of thousands of real people who try to help each other cope. If you know someone with an SCI or coping with mice in a wheelchair, introduce them to CareCure. It’s a great little community. carecure.net/

Rewatching Conan the Barbarian. Common Sense Media is exactly right: “Raunchier and bloodier than you remember.”

I made a very small change to this web page. See if you can spot it. I just made it a bit clearer.

I somehow don't think this person has read my blog. If you think that my blog on has something to do with homeowners insurance, that's ridiculous.

Between eyeglasses, conference call headset, and occasional COVID masks, it feels like my ears are as much a handle for my face as they are a way to hear things.
