    It's about all of our wonderful furry companions. We got our other 2 girls 9 years ago on December 20th. Since they were from the pound, they had to be spayed and kept for a day. We brought them home on my birthday. so we celebrate their day too.

    It was a year ago that a starving, injured and very frightened little kitten showed up at our house and was taken in to become a part of the family. With the vet bills that followed, I quickly learned of the HUGE hearts and generous nature of so...

    We need a conservative credit union. Were someone with financial assets to do something like that people would flock to them.

    Last October, a member of CB was unloading some materials. I paid $700.00 for 10,000 SPP. I was sick about laying out that much money but with trends the way they were, it was a decent deal. Good primers too BTW. 120 mile round trip. Money out of...

    The main point is, depending on how severe the hack was, they can have a lot of info on you. Web services are required by law to inform users of security breeches but many don't do it.

    My recommendation? Load up the Brave browser. It has a built in ad blocker and most importantly a tracker blocker. It runs faster and all around just works better. It also uses all of the Chrome add ons.

    Got limestone nearby? Dump some of that into it until it stops fizzing. H2SO4 isn't that toxic once neutralized.
