There have been so many devastating storms during the past week. We are grateful that we are not experiencing them here today, and praying for all of those who have been affected.
Only a few of the worst storms for today:

Sony: Hacker stole PlayStation users' personal info
(CNN) -- A hacker has obtained the personal information of PlayStation Network account holders and subscribers of the Qriocity streaming service, Sony said in a message to customers Tuesday.

Sony's investigations over the past week determined that an "unauthorized person" had obtained users' names, home addresses, e-mail addresses, birth dates and passwords, according to a statement being sent to all account holders.
The attack also has crippled Sony's PlayStation Network, which has some 70 million subscribers and has been down since April 20. The network lets customers download video games from the Web and play against each other online.

"While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility," said Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment, which manage the two services, in a joint statement.

The hacker could have taken credit card numbers, card expiration dates, billing addresses, answers to security questions and purchase history, but not credit-card security codes, they said.

Sony is encouraging customers "to protect against possible identity theft or other financial loss" by reviewing credit-card statements. The company also suggested that some customers may want to place a "fraud alert" with credit bureaus.

Sony did not say how many accounts had been compromised. A spokeswoman declined to comment Tuesday.

Some subscribers reacted angrily to the news.

"You waited a WEEK to tell us our (personal) information was compromised?" one PlayStation user wrote on a Sony blog. "That should have been said last Thursday" -- the day when Sony first acknowledged the issue.

The intrusions occurred between April 17 and 19, according to the statement. On April 20, Sony switched off the PlayStation and Qriocity online services, which have remained in the dark.

Users and paid subscribers were also mostly in the dark until Tuesday about the reason for the lengthy outage or about when services would be reinstated.

Sony initially said its PS network would be be back online within one to two days.

On Tuesday, PlayStation spokesman Patrick Seybold wrote in a statement that it could take another week before they "expect to restore some services."

Thank you, SJ! I think that the videographer did a good job on the video, and we appreciate your tweeting it!  :love005
The funny thing is, I ordered a baby crib mobile from Amazon Prime a few minutes ago, and had also been shopping all over Amazon for an hour or more. No problems, and everything was instaneous on the Amazon site itself.  :?
I just saw this article a minute ago.

It caused problems all over the 'net, not just IF.

Spring has sprung, y'all!  First city-wide yard sale of the season, about 20 miles away, last count 200+ families participating (not bad for one of these podunk KS towns).  It's already 40 degrees with an anticipated high of 74 - BRING IT ON  :laugh:

Cindy, that's an awesome temp there in KS! :up It's not that warm today in OH. :-(
It's 34 on the way to a whopping 47 here.
Have fun at the yard sales!
 :o That's awesome, Cindy!  :up

Donnacrafts, it sounds like you had it bad, too! Wow, and we thought it was bad that we got an inch or two of "little or no accumulation" yesterday!

Lakeland is getting it bad, people trapped in a collapsed hanger.  Be safe Donna ... keeping you in my thoughts!
I saw that on the weather channel about the collapsed hanger.
I have another friend from my town who moved to Lakeland area a few months ago, so I'm thinking of all of those in that area!

I'm quite familiar with on-line college courses, as that's how I took mine, especially just before and then after my bilateral knee replacement surgery. I was successful with the format, probably due to the fact that I am the type of person who usually prefers to work on my own, and am able to follow precise instruction about how the assignments should be submitted. I would, however,  not have chosen it for certain courses that I felt I really needed face to face contact.

I especially loved the fact that I could maintain my homebound status while I was recovering, and still move forward with my education.
One of my nieces just received her Associates degree in Accounting from Phoenix University in December. I am very proud of her, she graduated with a 3.95 GPA while working full time in the accounting department of a major hospital, and is still able to attend her classes on line. She began the program to earn her Bachelor's in Business Management from Phoenix in January.
