How to Have fun in a Hurricane!
Our first Hurricane and is was CRAZY! WE played and tried to make the most of it but the aftermath was really challenging.
We are safe and thanks to a fire extinguisher our house is safe too! We no longer have a generator but we are fine. Please pray for those that are stuck in the Hurricanes!

Ep311 Where & Why to Plant Your Flag
As a general rule, I would normally advise people to minimize the number of online accounts they have, including avoiding creating unnecessary accounts and closing accounts they no longer need. However, as a regular citizen, there are a handful of governmental accounts that exist for you already, whether you use them or not. And you should claim those accounts for yourself before bad guys do this on your behalf. Furthermore, as a home owner or modern consumer, you probably have several other accounts that you may never have claimed: utilities, financial institutions, medical portals, and more. Today I’ll tell you where and why to plant your flag.
