40 Million Card Numbers Stolen!

I am truly worried about the fastest growing crime here in US which is identity theft. This is something that I am always reminding my husband to be careful with his personal information. I read a news recently about 11 people that were charged by Federal Prosecutor for stealing Identity and the sale of more than 40 million credit and debit card numbers from at least nine U.S retailers. They said that this was one of the largest and most complex hacking and identity theft cases ever brought. Lifelock's response to this "largest ever" identity theft ring that banks and credit industries should begin taking a proactive role in protecting American consumers threatened by the increase in global ID theft. While the Department of Justice came down hard on these criminals, it’s still not enough. The crime is still increasing each year. Everyday hackers try to steal people's credit and debit numbers by using sophisticated hacking techniques that included cruising for wireless networks. That is scary, Isn't? I couldn't imagine myself or my families identity being stolen. I know it will be hard and it would take a long time to clear my name. But there is a way to protect your family from these crimes. LifeLock will help you prevent your identity from being stolen before it happens. I know how important it is to protect our identities that's why I enrolled myself in Lifelock a few months ago. Not only do I want to protect myself, but I also want to protect my family, my future and my career. Just being careful isn't enough to prevent or detect identity theft which is the fastest growing crime in the U.S. with over 9 million victims each year. Everyone needs to be Proactive and not just Reactive. At lifelock, they are trying to change all that, by being proactive and educating the consumer when no one else is. LifeLock, is an industry leader in proactive identity theft protection, they offer a proven solution that prevents your identity from being stolen before it happens.

Getting a good education can keep us out of financial difficulties

In this fast paced highly technical world of ours a good education is almost essential for success. Yes some individuals are able to get by without it, but what are the chances that one of us will be that lucky. The chances are very slim to nil. So if we want to be able to care for ourselves and our families the best that we can then we need to get the education that we can. Whether it be online like Walden University or actually sitting at a desk and listening to a lecture or something else as long as it provides the knowledge that can get us to the top then it is good no mater what.

This goes for mothers as well. You never know what is going to happen to your spouse. He could become a vegetable because of illness or injury at work or even worse. Then where will you and family be if you can not provide for them. Up the creek without a paddle that is for sure. So take some time and get a good education now while you still have time.

Valiant Watercolor Professional Quality Pen Set 20 Color Soft Flexible Tip. Perfect for Children's Coloring Books Manga Caligraphy Lettering. 100% Non-Toxic and Safe.

One of the things that I love to do aside from my photography is a watercolor painting. I love how watercolor gives life to a simple image. Here is an example of an image that I painted. A watermelon. I painted this image using a watercolor brush pen. This pen has a flexible nylon brush tip which makes it possible to create fine, medium, and bold strokes. How I achieved the fading color in my watercolor paint? I used a refillable blending brush pen that comes with the watercolor brush pens that I used. I get so excited when I see the watercolor effect of these pens. They are so easy to use.  



And when I need to unwind from my day to day activities. I will sit for a few minutes and enjoy the color of these watercolor brush pens using a coloring book that has beautiful and inspirational quotes.
