Where in the world is Brenda

My 2016 travels mostly focused on domestic destinations. In April a quick weekend trip to Disneyland and in May we returned to northern California and this time successfully enjoyed Yosemite National Park, which we missed a few years back due to the government shut down of national parks.

Oh no!  We were hacked!

Oh no! We were hacked!

We were hacked. While we are not sure who is responsible, we were hacked last week.  I suspect it is some Nigerian Prince, but my IT guys tell me it is likely someone from Russia. Anyhow, we gave them the boot; but there were some lingering issues. On the technology side, they have been handled, and I decided to take the opportunity to give the site a refresh.  But, all of the old content is still here and functional! So for now, it is boring and bland. In the coming…
