Do you have problems remembering passwords/user ID’s? Earlier on, I randomly copied them on to pieces of paper, and then jotted them on my big calendar, knowing I could always find them there. However, with the advent of a new one nearly every day, or so it seems, I didn’t like scrambling through the calendar pages to find a password. I finally hit on a solution that you might be interested in using.
I made up a spreadsheet listing the company or account, User ID, Password, e-mail address, questions/answers that I used for identification, etc., etc., etc. I colored the first column, then colored every other line so I could follow it when I found the one I needed. I keep it where I can reach it. It is on a legal sheet and colorful enough it doesn’t get lost in the dozen other papers on my desk.
If you don’t use a computer, you could make up a chart by hand. As new ones are created, I write them on the back, then include them when I make up a new spreadsheet.
In August, the last month of a “blue” moon (two full moons in the same month) until 2015, I thought a lot about Neil Armstrong. He died in August. As RVers, we think we have had some amazing adventures. His unique life experience could top even ours. As few experiences really are, I am sure it was to him and many of you, completely awe-inspiring. Moonlight nights are awesome anyway, but I have often looked at the moon and wondered what it must feel like to know that you had actually walked on it. Some experiences just defy description.
In celebration, I watched the movie, ET, again Sunday night. Basically, I laughed and cried all the way through it again.
With the Republican Convention held in Florida last week and the Democratic Convention this week, the windy hurricanes hardly have a chance to get in the news. Although I have said many times that I don’t appreciate politicians from either party, I would vote for either Ann Romney or Michelle O’Bama!
Well, I had an interesting and fun week. My e-book novel, Winter in the Wilderness, came out last Tuesday and prompted by my e-mail, Facebook, and blog campaign to let everyone know about it, I received so many “You Go, Girl” notes and congratulatory messages that it inspired and spurred me on to start another novel. Hopefully, I won’t take 30 years to write this one! God Bless until next week.
Minshall’s non-fiction how-to book, RVing Alaska and Canada, and her first novel, Winter in the Wilderness, are available thru Amazon.
At 45, Widow Minshall began 20 years of solo full-time RVing throughout Alaska, Mexico, and Canada. Sharlene canoed the Yukon, mushed sled dogs, worked a dude ranch, visited Hudson Bay polar bears, and lived six months on a Mexican beach. She lectured at Life on Wheels, published six RV-related books and wrote a novel, “Winter in the Wilderness.”
