Well, my joints seem to be having fun in throwing me into fits of pain, but that seems to have subsided for now...
I rebuilt my computer for better tank driving, that is just about done, I'm really liking the better speed, and am even starting to take a shine to Windows 8!
My sister came for a visit this weekend. It was pleasant, got to grill the last of the steaks outside before the weather gets too crappy. We had Acorn squash to go with them, a sweet tasty alternative to potatoes! =^^=
But as we were talking after the meal, she told me something that hit me as very disturbing. Someone stole her son, my nephew's credit cards right out of his bedroom in their house! This was done in broad daylight, when nobody was home. And those were the only things missing! Even more unnerving is that we were able to track the purchases to a series of gas stations and quickie marts in the area. (The miracle of the online statement) So we know the exact time these occurred.
My nephew went to some of these stores to try to get security camera footage of the culprit. Initially they were going to cooperate, but now not so. Fair enough we aren't the police.
Here's the boot to the head: The cops don't care!
1. The spurious charges were removed from my nephew's credit cards, so he's out nothing.
2. Total damage was around $X000, the card company doesn't want to pursue the issue.
3. Individual stores were out about $Y00 each, they will not pursue the issue.
Since the house wasn't broken into, we have some suspicions as to who this might be, but without any evidence...
I just find this very disturbing...
