<p>Morning peeps!  Thanks for the advice last night re the GOTR page.  I deleted that one user.  There was another new "fan" who had a weird profile pic and didn't appear to "belong."  This morning when I checked it, his profile pic was gone and you couldn't click through to his profile at all, so I deleted him too.  I changed the settings to U.S. fans only for now too.  I guess I will just watch it and delete peeps when my gut tells me to.  I don't want to be ultra paranoid, but I feel I do have a duty to police it some.</p>

<p>GOTR page - I'm not sure how fan pages work as opposed to an individual profile, but can you block comments and 'like' actions from non-members?  For that matter, I agree that the idea of taking a list of new fan requests to the parents, and if no one recognizes them, decline the fan request. </p>

<p>While most folks probably are harmless, you never know in this world.  Being extra-careful for the safety of the girls is a good thing!</p>

<p>I've wondered about some of this stuff.  As most of you guys know, I created a website where I've put up pictures of my daughter.  I did that so that our family and friends can see the pics.  But since it's a regular website, anybody who stumbles across it can see the pics. Some people have warned me that I shouldn't be doing that, but I guess my rationale is that there's no personal info on that website, i.e. our last name or even what state we live in.  Still, as my daughter gets older, I don't know what (if any) extra precautions I might need to take...</p>

<p>Changing the subject...  Somebody emailed me this <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txdv_oNq81I&feature=player_embedded" target="_blank">youtube</a> link.  How would you like to have this job?</p>

<p>The site is fixed - YAY!  Hello to you all!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>For the last 2 days I have not been able to post.  If I got in, the pages would freeze, then my whole computer would freak out.  What a pain.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>RIL - that is scary stuff.  I think you handled it well.  My 11yo DS wants a FB page and I won't let him.  Nuh uh.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Lots of stuff happening with me atm.  I just applied for another job.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/shock.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>

<p>Morning.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Here's a fun night:</p>
<ul><li>Get 2 calls from your brother, one from your mom, and one from your cousin in FL between 10:45 and 11 p.m., telling you your father (age 80) and aunt (age 88) decided to drive to their old house to get something.  While they were there, they both fell and were down for hours, unable to get up.  Your aunt is in the hospital.  No one knows where your dad is.</li>
<li>Spend the next half hour calling folks to locate your dad.  He finally calls as soon as he walks into the retirement apartment building where he currently lives.  He's bruised but OK.</li>
<li>Drive to the hospital and sit in the ER waiting room for an hour b/c they won't let you back to see your aunt, who is all alone. </li>
<li>Finally get a sympathetic person to help you and go back to ER to be with your aunt.  Stay with her until after 3 a.m., when the doctor finally tells you she's not going to be sent home anytime soon.</li>
<li>Drive home and stumble into bed, still fully clothed, at 3:30 a.m.  You've been up since 6.</li>
<li>The dog barks at 5 and wakes you.</li>
<li>Your BF texts you at 6 (as he does every day) and wakes you.</li>
<li>Your other cousin, this one in NJ, calls at 6:30 and wakes you.</li>
<li>Your BF, concerned that he didn't hear back from you, texts again at 7 and wakes you.</li>
<li>Your brother texts at 8 and wakes you.</li>
<li>You give up and get up to face the day.</li>
</ul><p> </p>
<p>Fun, huh?</p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-size:9px;">Disclaimer: I am not angry about the calls/texts.  People wanted to see how my aunt was (or in Gov's case, how I was), and I understand that.  But still..............</span></p>

<p>Oh.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>GOD.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I just tried to wash my hands.  I have no running water!  Somehow in the last half hour or so since I've been awake, I've lost water in my house.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Seriously?  I give up.  I just give up.</p>

<p>Morning.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ok my boss is off her rocker!  She knows I have a gazillion things to do the rest of this week but I came in to an email asking me to do a few other things that there is absolutely NO way I can get to.  And when she finally made it in today, asked how cleaning out the lab and office were going.  Um, not going.  Didn't we settle that yesterday?  This craziness will end soon, I was on my feet so long yesterday that when I got home my legs and ankles were completely swollen.  My friend stopped by to say hi and I showed her, she couldn't believe how bad it was!  Phewey.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So I have a friend who teaches a social media class (or did) and one thing she always stressed to people with kids is it is fine to post pics but keep identifiers out of the pic.  For instance, don't take a pic in front of your house where the house number is visible.  Don't take a bus stop pic where the street sign is there for all to see.  Of course finding those things out is easy these days  but the less you put out there, the better.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And RIL do whatever you feel is right to protect those kids!  If  you delete someone who should be there (a cousin or uncle or something) they will understand and take the time to contact you to explain who they are and why they want access!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Theia  so sorry about the rough night.  Hope  your aunt is mending and you pop is ok!!</p>

<p>Fun: I just unloaded a re-fire glaze kiln and every freaking pot came out beautifully!!! <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif" title="">  Even the ugly new glaze combinations I was testing don't have any issues!</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Not fun:  now I really don't have any freaking idea what the problem is, because I didn't do anything different.</p>

<p><strong>(((Theia))) </strong> I'm glad your dad is OK and I hope your aunt will be as well.  Falls by older adults are scary, not only for the injuries they can cause but also because they can be a symptom of something not being right.</p>

yeah... her BF has no defense here.  She got home at a ridiculous hour.  She usually has her phone volume turned off,* but he should have known that she wouldn't this time around -- just in case her family needed to reach her.  Somebody ought to kick that guy's a$$!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Meanwhile, I was in bed early, and got here a few hours ago.  Stepped out to go to the tiny little work-out room that the county provides, and just got back.    Lots and LOTS to do in the next few days before I hit the road.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll check in later!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>*<span style="font-size:10px;">If I go for a run or am working late, I text her when I get home.  That way, if she wakes up at 2 a.m., she knows I got home safely</span><br>
