Identity Theft 2017

Anything can be hacked. Though you don't read much about it these days, theft identity still occurs with people seeking ways to protect themselves. While shopping with a friend in Walgreen's, she suggested a billfold for my credit cards so criminals walking or driving by can't download my information. This applies not only to inner cities but smaller communities as well.

Another friend in New Jersey recently tried to apply for a drivers license in Florida, as he is moving there, only to discover that someone had used his identity 20 years ago, was arrested for DWI, and now that there is a national database, there was a warrant out for his arrest. This matter is quickly being resolved but it's amazing how far back these things can go and how they can have ramifications on your life today.

You know that lights in the sky, and endless UFO sightings, awaken one's connections to extraterrestrial activities and visitors. There's been lots of events since the beginning - but I will not be impressed until we meet the aliens - who, what, when, where, and why answered - or I get Taken again though I don't sense it.

The Mystery Airships were a class of unidentified flying objects, the best-known series of which were reported in newspapers in western states of the U.S., (1896-97) (1909-1910). They were seen throughout Britain in 1909-1913 and New Zealand and Australia in 1909. During the WWI (1914-1918) there were mystery aircraft scares in South Africa, Canada, Great Britain and the US.
