5 Things I Learned This Week-#61

Gold Medals

In the blogosphere Cat-O-Lympics, I learned that Spunky Doodle won in the bare paw boxing event and Abby won in the bird & squirrel watching event.

Jury Duty Scam

At Live, Love, Laugh (Jodi's Journey) I learned about a jury scam going around. The caller claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo, your identity was just stolen. Check out her blog post for more information.

My Funny Dad, Harry

I learned that a book review of the book I wrote about my dad and me is posted at Michael Jackson Forever Story. I always like reading good reviews about my book. You may want to take a look at it. Also found out a blogger buddy bought my book--what a lift that gave me after a hard day at work when I saw her email.

New Assignment At Work

As a secretary, I'm learning a lot this week at work switching to working for litigation attorneys after working in the business area for 14 years.

Mystery of the Missing Eyes

Yesterday I was pleased to find the two black marbles I used for eyes in my snow bunny in the snow. Apparently, as the snow started to melt, they just dropped down and sank into it so I didn't see them. I feel better now knowing they were not eaten or stolen! (big smile)

Glad your new job is going well. I've been thinking about you this week.

Hooray! Nobody stole the eyeballs! I couldn't imagine anyone coming up and stealing eyeballs--but you never know.

Have a great weekend, Karen!
